Renaissance Disclosed: African Leadership in the Ebola Crisis of 2014

Ebola and Mbeki: Context Disclosed

Did principles of the African Renaissance influence the responses of African leaders to the Ebola Crisis of 2014? Using Paul Ricoeur’s hermeneutic arc,1 this study discloses principles of the African Renaissance expressed in Thabo Mbeki’s The African Renaissance Statement (ARS).2 The analysis continues by comparing and contrasting those African Renaissance principles to African leadership behaviours in the Ebola crisis response. The findings reveal that an official response stream and an organic response stream converge to contain the Ebola crisis by enacting the principles of the African Renaissance. Prior to the analysis of the ARS and African leadership behaviours, the study begins with an overview of the Ebola Crisis of 2014. An exploration of three aspects of Thabo Mbeki’s persona, relevant to understanding the ARS, follows the Ebola Crisis overview.
