Get To Know The Longest Serving Presidents In Africa


While compiling this list, something became really clear to me and that is, power is extremely addictive.

In the lists of the world’s 30 longest serving leaders who are still in power, Africa boasts of 10. 6 out of these 10 are in the World’s Top 10 and we are at number 1 and 2 in the World’s list which isn’t exactly something to be proud about.

Some of the people on our list have held more than one national leadership-level office: presidency, prime minister-ship, or some other title implying or widely believed to confer national leadership.

Here are 10 of the current and longest serving presidents in Africa who have been in power in their countries for at least ten years and above.
