Stewards of Power
Restoring Africa’s Dignity
Africa’s national leaders have failed the continent. So have Africa’s church leaders. In Stewards of Power: Restoring Africa’s Dignity, Dwight Mutonono identifies the leadership problems plaguing the continent and appeals for good leadership in the style of the biblical Joseph rather than the xenophobic, self-centred style exemplified by Jonah. He offers practical suggestions for how African Christians can reject sycophancy and demand accountability from their leaders. This is a prerequisite for restoring Africa’s dignity with a clarion call for integrity and righteousness at a personal, institutional and national level.
This book is a great contribution to Africa’s quest for a new reformation movement and the Africa God wants.

Dwight Mutonono challenges us to dare to hope for a better Africa through faith in God and his ways. May God use this book to challenge African leaders to the kind of stewardship of power that will transform the continent!
