Cape Verde: Ibrahim Governance prize goes to ex-President

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Cape Verde, Governance, Politics

Twitter users react to the Mo Ibrahim Foundation's attribution of this year's Governance Prize [1] to ex-President of Cape Verde Pedro Pires. The $5 million prize dates from 2007 but went unattributed the past two years. Pires is the second “lusophone” politician to win the Prize, after ex-President of Mozambique Joaquim Chissano in 2007.
