We know that Africa is a great, big continent filled with abundant resources, great people and the rest of that gist. We also know that African governments, through the eyes of the tech ecosystem – if you will, can be a bit obtuse at times. Here’s an entire article on that.

However, what isn’t talked about most of the time are those governments that are doing some things right. So, we did what literally anyone would do: we took a look across the continent and tried to identify governments who have done (or are doing) good stuff in their respective ecosystems and strengthening the spirit of innovation.
