What issues affect governance in African countries? What is impeding the emergence of African countries from the scourge of governance deficiency? More specifically, why has the ANC failed to govern effectively in South Africa? What are the key lessons for African youth as they prepare to assume positions in government?

We are honoured to host the former President of South Africa, Kgalema Motlanthe, and Dr Khulu Mbatha, a former special advisor to President Motlanthe and a veteran of the African National Congress to address these questions and more.

President Motlanthe and Dr Mbatha will engage in conversation on the importance of developing inclusive economies in African countries, the challenge of dependency and resource curses, corruption, and the importance of robust institutions.
