South Africa suffers a crisis of leadership. Yet history offers many an example of spectacular, authentically African leaders, untouched by white influence. Max du Preez has unearthed new data on visionary leaders Maqoma, Mohlomi and especially Moshoeshoe, who founded a peaceful nation through persuasion and prosperity. Moshoeshoe, embracing diversity and new technologies, knew that nothing threatens a nation more than poverty. An absorbing and timely look at what African leaders can be.
