Portsmouth, United Kingdom –16 February 2024

The African Leadership Organisation (UK) announces the rescheduling of the highly anticipated African Persons of the Year Ceremony, which was originally slated for February 22–23, 2024. The event will now take place on March 14–15, 2024, at the Ethiopian Skylight Hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

This decision comes in response to the scheduling conflict with the funeral proceedings for the late H.E. Hage Geingob, former President of Namibia, who recently passed away, as announced by the Government of Namibia.

Hence, the management of the African Leadership Organisation, in consultation with our keynote speakers and other stakeholders, has agreed on a shift to March 15, 2024, to allow all our distinguished African leaders to pay their final respects to President Geingob.

The African Persons of the Year Ceremony is a cornerstone of the African Leadership Magazine’s annual calendar, bringing together policymakers, private sector leaders, civil society leaders, thought leaders, and stakeholders from across Africa and the world. This prestigious event serves as a platform to honour outstanding African leaders driving pan-African agendas and contributing to the continent’s development.

President William Ruto of Kenya; Former President Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania; and the Right Honourable Baroness Sandy Verma of the UK House of Lords are set and confirmed to headline the rescheduled African Persons of the Year ceremony in Addis Ababa. Other confirmed high-profile attendees include Hon. Cllr. J Fonati Koffa, Speaker, House of Representatives of Liberia; Hon. Justice Martha K. Koome, Chief Justice of Kenya; Dr. Kailesh Jagutpal, Minister of Health and Wellness, Mauritius; and a host of other notable leaders from across Africa.
