This episode is a conversation about power, how it is created, enforced and could be disrupted by young African leaders. I was honoured to host Professor Funmi Olonisakin, an activist at heart from her days of student protest in Nigeria, a Professor of Security, Leadership and Development at King’s College London and a founding Director of the African Leadership Centre (ALC). We delve into why Funmi believes young African leaders need to study and understand circles of power and how to leverage it even without it. Secondly, we explore the key power players at the global level for Africa and the need for a Pan-African movement to challenge the hegemony and inheritance elite.
