I had an answer! It was funny! Don't lie to the forum, Bus! You're already on thin ice.

Presenting... the Gallery of "Current" African Heads of State (followed by the year they were last actually a head of state):

Ahmed Nazif (2003)
Funkpie (0 pts)

Charles Taylor (2003)
Venusian (0 pts)

Nelson Mandela (1999)
Nick Danger, Numanoid, Thor (3 pts)

In his defense, at least Numanoid said, "I know he isn't, but I bet most think of him first".

Spoiler:
until question 11, where I will get crushed and drop about ten spots.
