Nic Cheeseman has appeared on the BBC radio programme Newshour Extra, discussing the pros and cons of presidential term-limits, and whether power corrupts.

In a lengthy discussion with other panellists including Lord Owen, Dr Cheeseman drew on research recently published in his new book Democracy in Africa to demonstrate the dangers of allowing presidents to stay in power for life.
