Ex-Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Wins $5 Million Leadership Award

Former Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has been awarded a $5 million prize for excellence in African leadership.

Sirleaf, who served two terms as Liberia's president, was recognized for leading the country's recovery from years of devastating civil war, according to the Mo Ibrahim Prize committee.

A Nobel Peace Prize winner, Sirleaf was Africa's first female president and the first woman to receive the prize, which celebrates African leaders who have strengthened democracy on the continent. Sirleaf took office in January 2006. She was succeeded by former international soccer star George Weah, last month. She oversaw years of peace and stability, although the country faces ongoing problems.

Launched in 2007, the Mo Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership is awarded to democratically elected African presidents and prime ministers who have left office within the last three years.

Previous winners include former Botswana president Festus Mogae, in 2008 and Mozambique's former president Joaquim Chissano, in 2007. But on six occasions the prize has not been awarded, with no eligible candidate deemed worthy.The London-based foundation awarded the prize last to former Namibian president Hifikepunye Pohamba in 2014.

The $5 million prize is distributed over 10 years and winners receive $200,000 every year for life thereafter.
