The Kofi Annan Prize, uh… Mo Ibrahim Prize

Prizes, prizes, prizes. Awards, awards, awards. Gunpowder magnates to cell phone magnates handing out the cash. The newest award for supposed good global citizenship goes to Al Gore… nope make that Joaquim Chissano, and was handed out by Kofi Annan.

Joaquim gets $5 million for his work in giving Mozambique a per capita income of $310 per year, and the people an average life span of 42. Whooppeeeeee!
