Top Most Protected African Presidents



Presidents rule the majority of African countries today. Some are well-known tyrants, while others are well-liked democrats.

The truth is based on the region of Africa where there’s unrest, and some African leaders and Presidents have chosen not to want to let go of office. Hence this suggests the need to be heavily guided at all times.

Below is a list of the presidents of Africa who enjoy the best security.

5. Cyril Ramaphosa – South Africa

Cyril Ramaphosa is a politician and businessman from South Africa. He has been president of the African National Congress since 2017 and South Africa’s fifth democratically elected president since 2018.

Ramaphosa previously served as Nelson Mandela’s secretary general, President Jacob Zuma’s deputy, and the National Planning Commission’s chairman.

He is one of the African presidents who are best protected. Ramaphosa prefers crossovers over SUVs, unlike other presidents. He drives a specially modified or customised BMW with display riders and large motorcades.

4. Emmerson Mnangagwa – Zimbabwe

Emmerson Mnangagwa, a politician and revolutionary from Zimbabwe, has led that nation since November 24, 2017. He was a longtime supporter of Robert Mugabe and a member of the ZANU-PF. He held several cabinet positions and was Mugabe’s vice president until November 2017, when a coup took place, and he was removed from office. He won his first full presidential term in the divisive 2018 general election.

The need for the president to be closely guarded becomes a top priority due to the unrest in Zimbabwe’s political scene. The president is surrounded by tight security, particularly when travelling abroad or inside the country for official business.

In addition, his security personnel use armoured Mercedes-Benz, Land Cruisers, high-speed motorcycles, and numerous special forces and soldiers. Many armed bodyguards accompany the President as he travels in an armoured limousine.

3. Alassane Ouattara – Ivory Coast

He has been the Ivory Coast’s (Côte d’Ivoire) president since 2010. Every time Ouattara enters or exits the country, he is closely guarded by security personnel.

Until he is out of sight of the general public, presidential guards follow Ouattara’s vehicle on foot and provide heavy support for it with heavily armoured personnel.

2. Mohammed VI of Morocco – Morocco

Following the passing of his father, King Hassan II, Mohammed, the current monarch of Morocco, is a member of the ‘Alawi dynasty.

He has a sizable financial stake in numerous Moroccan economic sectors. According to Forbes, his net worth is between US$2.1 billion and over US$8.2 billion. 

An armoured Mercedes-Benz and several Range Rovers make up Mohammed’s presidential limo. He also rides in an armoured BMW and a communication humvee when he travels.

1. Muhammadu Buhari – Nigeria

Muhammadu Buhari is a retired major general in the Nigerian Army who led that nation’s military government from December 31, 1983, to August 27, 1985, as a result of a military takeover.

He was democratically elected to become the president in 2015. A position he occupies to date

The president of the most populous African country, Muhammadu Buhari, is given top priority when it comes to protecting him. His convoy, the biggest and most impressive on the continent, consists of numerous motorcycle cavalcades. It’s almost impossible to get past President Buhari. A special security guard and a fast security motorcade make up the security.
