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.

Dwight S. M. Mutonono

DR DWIGHT S. M. MUTONONO is the executive director at Africa Leadership and Management Academy (ALMA) in Harare, Zimbabwe. During his many years as a pastor, administrator and educator in Zimbabwe he has witnessed many abuses of power which have strengthened his commitment to the importance of stewardship.


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!
