Former Botswana president wins $5-million Ibrahim Prize FROM CBC

"Festus Mogae, the former president of Botswana, has won the second annual Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership to recognize his record of good governance.

Kofi Annan, the chairman of the prize committee and former United Nations secretary general, said Mogae won the $5-million US prize for outstanding leadership that had ensured Botswana's ongoing stability and prosperity.

"The prize committee believes that good governance requires an environment conducive to peace, security and development, based on the rule of law and respect for human rights. Botswana has had to address the challenge of advancing each in a balanced way," Annan said.

"President Mogae's outstanding leadership has ensured Botswana's continued stability and prosperity in the face of an HIV/AIDS pandemic which threatened the future of his country and people," Annan said."
