This edition of Affrika: Journal of Politics, Economics and Society is devoted to revisiting Africa's past and present educational agenda through a careful rethinking of the intersection between the human factor, educational leadership, and development, in the African context. The special edition attempts an interrogation of the disconnect between education and development on the continent especially in view of the putative linkage between the current educational systems and the pervasive low productivity and dysfunctions in Africa. The examination of the missing link between education and development in Africa, as pursued in this edition, is significantly interrogative of the visions of such notable African leaders as Houphet Boigny (Cote d'Ivoire), Kaunda (Zambia), Lumumba/ Mobutu (Congo-Kinshasa), Machel (Mozambique), Nasser (Egypt), Nkrumah (Ghana), and Nyerere (Tanzania) and some notable others who were committed to the enthronement of an appreciably developed Africa owing to their conviction that few nations can even contemplate development without producing large numbers of highly educated people.
