Today's leadership thinkers are emphasizing gender equity and equality (Peters Tom, in Re-imagine 2009). Wilson (2007) states that;' "Closing leadership gap, add women and change everything". African Countries are implementing a women decade (2010– 2020) and yet many officers and employees in many organizations are not aware.
