United States President, Barack Obama on his last leg of his Africa tour, on Tuesday condemned African leaders who hang on to power, as he became the first sitting US President to address the African Union.
“Africa’s democratic progress is also at risk when leaders refuse to step aside when their terms end,” Obama said in a speech at the AU’s headquarters in the Ethiopian capital.
“No one should be president for life,” Obama said, adding that he himself was looking forward to handing over to his successor.
