A Reward For Good Behavior by Emily Flynn Vencat FROM Newsweek

"Next month, Ibrahim's eponymous foundation will announce the first winner of its Achievement in African Leadership Prize. It will be by far the world's most generous annual philanthropic prize, worth three times as much as the Nobel: the winner will receive $5 million—spread out over 10 years—and $200,000 per year beyond that, until death. Only democratically elected sub-Saharan leaders can qualify. They will be judged by how well they've performed in eight categories, including offering security to their citizens, as well as promoting the rule of law, economic opportunity and political freedom. And to collect, they will have to leave office when their term ends, with no clouds over their tenure."
