The experiences of African states from pre-colonialism, colonial era through independence and the post-modern period have continue to evolve. As the continent continues to grapple with old challenges, new ones are emerging and these combine to create complex situations. In the face of this development, African scholars, researchers, policymakers and practitioners remain undaunted in understanding the situations and proffering solutions to the challenges. Since inception, African Renaissance has demonstrated unwavering partnership towards the transformation of Africa and the promotion of its cause through the provision of a formidable platform for publishing research from these groups.
The Journal through its internal mechanism has continued to project African affairs by accommodating articles on African issues that are of high quality, after they have gone through its peer-review process. The contributions in this Issue are timely and very topical as they cover virtually all areas of concerns in the continent. These include discourses on: The consequences of social exclusion, and political marginalisation, leadership, corruption, and poor governance, defective democratization process as a function of state capture, inter-ethnic conflicts and reinventing the Ubuntu spirit, the dynamics of migration in the emerging smart cities, service delivery and constructive engagement of the common people, navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic, especially, in the advent of the second wave and multiple variants, etc.
The Journal has pull through all these years and raised the standard due to our team work. We acknowledge the respective painstaking roles in the entire process performed by our anonymous reviewers, the contributors and the publishers, Adonis & Abbey.
