    It is a pretty good thing to see Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf be ranked among great leaders of Africa but I want to differ the position Madam Sirleaf is placed. She deserves a position higher than No. 10 because of her countless stride for women participation in government especially in Africa. She brought Liberia back to sanity as a country of the rule of Law. She is the Mother WOMEN ADVOCACY in Africa. She restored a nation that lost it Compass for almost a century. She is the Mother of Modern Liberia, She is the First Female President of Africa and the Winner of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, how then could she be placed No. 10.
    Were you to rearrange the list in this order:
    1. Thomas Sankara
    2. Kwame Nkrumah
    3. Nelson Mandela
    4. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
    5. Julius Nyerere
    6. Patrice Lumumba
    7. Halie Selassie
    8. Jomo Kenyatta
    9. Samora Moises Michel
    10. Robert Mugabe
    Unarguably these are selfless African characters who hand prints are visible on the continent of Africa.
