We need to craft Africa’s new vision - Maimane
If Africans want “good stories” to be told about the continent Africans have to create them, Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane said on Friday. Speaking at the Liberal International (LI) executive committee meeting where he presented this year’s Africa Freedom Award to Zambian opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema on Friday night, Maimane said these days one often heard people berating others for repeating negative stereotypes of African nations and their leaders.
“We are told that Africa needs to have its good stories told and that we cannot perpetuate the narrative of a failed continent with corrupt leaders and a bleak outlook. But if we want good stories to be told then we must create them.
