Don­ald Kaberuka, Pres­i­dent, African Devel­op­ment Bank “I don’t fear los­ing an elec­tion. There is only one thing I fear - liv­ing in a so­ci­ety that has no room for mi­nori­ties. I will not live in a so­ci­ety that doesn’t re­spect and pro­tect peo­ple who are dif­fer­ent from the ma­jor­ity.”

Fox Odoi, a Ugan­dan MP on the an­ti­ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity law “It would be very easy for me to sit at the World Bank and earn a nice salary and crit­i­cise. I gave up a com­fort­able ca­reer to come here and do my bit be­cause I recog­nise that no­body but us Nige­ri­ans can clean it up.”

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nige­ria’s fi­nance

min­is­ter “The Cen­tral African Repub­lic is fall­ing through the cracks ... it needs the same fo­cus that is be­ing put on Syria and South Su­dan.”
