This chapter examines the origin and development of planning-laws in Africa, establishes the rationale behind the major planning-law reforms where they are found and where not found, questions are raised as to why. The processes of planning-law reforms, the identification and contribution of major stakeholders, the opportunities and challenges involved in the process, the effects of the absence of and/or bad implementation of existing or reformed laws, and the eventual outcome on the pattern and structure of African cities and on the lives of Africans are analysed. In view of the new African urban agenda, there is an urgent need for a revolution in planning-laws in Africa, which is an essential element in the process of governing urban Africa.
