Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta (above) and Ali Bongo of Gabon are among the African leaders named in the Pandora Papers investigation as hiding assets in offshore tax havens.

The Pandora Papers are a massive trove of nearly 12 million confidential documents that were leaked to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

The tax documents expose secretive offshore financial structures and trusts in tax havens, thereby casting a light on the shadowy financial tactics of the world's powerful, including those in Africa.

Uhuru Kenyatta, president of Kenya

Ali Bongo Ondimba, president of Gabon

Patrick Achi, prime minister of the Ivory Coast

Jim Muhwezi, security minister of Uganda
