Thabo Mbeki

Thabo Mbeki: Africa's Philosopher-King
(Book Number 17)

In Thabo Mbeki: Africa's Philosopher-King, Adekeye Adebajo reflects on the intellectual and lived experiences that shaped Thabo Mbeki's pan-Africanism and African Renaissance vision. As this book explains, Mbeki's sense of belonging to the wider African continent and his later vision of an African Renaissance were inspired by his upbringing and education, as well as by the two decades he spent in exile in Swaziland, Botswana, Nigeria and Zambia between 1971 and 1990. Adebajo asserts that Mbeki is the most important African political figure of his generation.
