Challenges, opportunities, and solutions for Africa are being discussed in a new book "African Expectations: Musings from Where I Stand" published July 21. August 03, 2012
“African Expectations: Musings from Where I Stand” was officially launched at the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville on July 28. The author hopes the book would inspire Africans to tell their stories. An old African proverb states: “Until the lions can tell their stories, tales of hunting will always glorify the hunter.” The book is therefore an attempt by the author to discuss challenges and opportunities facing Africa from his own perspective.
African Expectations was published on July 21. The book is a collection of essays about how political, economic, and socio-cultural issues retard Africa’s development and how the most important factor for this failure is the lack of good leadership...The commentary on the state of Africa gives an insight into the mind of an African who shares as much a preference for modernity, as he does many times for the good of Tradition...The book tells stories, discusses challenges and opportunities. Most importantly, African Expectations offers solutions for a better Africa.”
