I had secretely vowed to contribute my next 10 blogs on the positive things about Africa and its politics. I was motivated by the fact that, most of the time, we dwell so much on the negatives to an extent where we blight the positives. In any case, most of the so called international media relentlessly spew acres of filth and dung about us on a daily basis. I wanted to be the change, to highlight that after all is said and done, we are just like everybody else.
But when I sat down to think hard about it, I realised I had embarked on one of the toughest assignments I have ever given myself. Where would I get 10 positives things to write about Africa and its politics. I poured through newspapers, went over the internet, spoke with friends and searched all possible avenues I thought had answers, but to no avail.
I still havent found the first positive thing worth blogging about. Maybe you can help.
