African leaders are paid handsomely if their salaries are anything to go by. Even though the continent is still developing, its leaders take home fat cheques.

In Kenya, for instance, a New World wealth report revealed that people with political connections control half of the country’s wealth at the expense of ordinary citizens, some of whom live below a dollar per month.

In Africa, politicians fight for elected positions tooth and nail, attracted by affluent lifestyles, huge allowances and medical cover.

Who are the highest-paid African presidents? As reported by Business Insider, Cameroon president Paul Biya takes home the highest salary. He’s followed by King Mohammed VI of Morocco and South Africa’s Cyril Ramaphosa.
