Photos: Seven African leaders who did not wear suits during China summit




Of the over African fifty heads of state and government who attended the just ended China – Africa cooperation summit in Beijing, there was no female leader.

Here are the seven leaders who opted to wear something other than suit over the two day summit which ended with a pledge by China to give the continent $60 billion worth of financial assistance.
1. George Weah, Liberia

4 – Mahamadou Issoufou, Niger
5 – Idris Deby Itno, Chad
6 – Roch Marc Kabore, Burkina Faso
7 – Adama Barrow, The Gambia
