Mo Ibrahim Foundation Announces 2024 Ibrahim Leadership Fellows

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation announced that the 2024 class of Ibrahim Leadership Fellows, which will see three emerging African leaders participate in one-year mentoring programs at leading multilateral institutions.

The incoming Fellows are Hanae Rharnit, from Morocco, who will join the African Development Bank (AfDB); Veronica Rhobi Masubo, from Tanzania, who will join the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA); and Terfa Ashwe, from Nigeria, who will join the International Trade Centre (ITC).

During their 12-month programmes, Fellows gain both technical and leadership skills, while contributing directly to research and policy design.

Upon completion of their placements, Fellows become members of the Foundation’s Now Generation Network (NGN), a coalition of young and mid-career Africans from all 54 African countries, who are committed to moving the continent’s development agenda forward.

Dr Mo Ibrahim, Chair of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, expressed his congratulations to the new Fellows:

« We are incredibly proud to welcome Hanae Rharnit, Veronica Rhobi Masubo, and Terfa Ashwe as the 2024 Ibrahim Leadership Fellows. Their impressive backgrounds and commitment to Africa’s development are truly inspiring. We look forward to seeing the impact they will make in their respective fields and wish them every success as they embark on this transformative journey. Their work is crucial for the development of Africa, and we are confident they will contribute significantly to advancing the continent’s progress. »
