African leaders cleaning gutters

African leaders ordinarily do not get on the grounds to do dirty jobs, but when it comes to canvassing for votes, they are ready to do anything at all.

Ghana’s former president, Jerry Rawlings has been described as the one to have set the pace for these kinds of jobs for other African presidents to follow. Since then, other former presidents like Ghana’s John Mahama have been seen cleaning gutters largely for votes.
