There is no doubt that African leaders are jumping a lot of benefits, more money. They are among the highest paid heads of state in the world, despite the underdevelopment of their countries, their high unemployment rate and their inflated payroll. This is evident when comparing what the president earns with the country’s GDP and the minimum wage paid to the country’s workers. But most presidents, pay boards or finance ministries do not take this into consideration. That’s why you’ll find a president and government officials pocketing millions of people because the majority of people live on less than a dollar a day.
In practice, politics pays, not only with power, influence, but also with money. Here is a list of the highest paid presidents in Africa.
