Leadership and governance in UAE
The famous Guinness book of records was one of my go-to books back in my school days, it was one that always got me thrilled, and yet informative. As a teenager then, one of the things that delighted me and my friends while we hurriedly flip through the pages of the book was the richest man on earth [of course, we considered most beautiful woman as well]. 

The UAE [United Arab Emirates] always had someone there talking about their affluence, opulence, and lavish lifestyle. It became clear over time that the leadership was more of a dynasty, which solved many other riddles in my head.

Today, I will share with you more insight on the leadership and governance in the UAE, amongst other things.
