African Path is an excellent new multiblog, a growing bunch of provocative thoughtful bloggers from around the content. Check out this article by Dennis Matanda for starters, arguing for the re-colonisation of Africa.
I actually agree with him about Africa needing institutions. Still he's nuts.
It is indeed an interesting article but institutions alone aren’t going to solve our problems, but I do hope he was being sarcastic as to his other views. I think our biggest problem is that we are trying to emulate the ways of the west – we are undeniably people fascinated with everything that come with it. What we should do is find something, finding a system that works for us to let us grow. We don’t need democracy to tell us we have rights, we don’t need autocracy to say we don’t. I don’t know about the rest of Africa, but democracy sure as hell isn’t Nigeria’s solution.
I was actually quite shocked when I first saw the article. Thought I had read the title all wrong. But I guess I wasn't.
I kept thinking of "A Modest Proposal," while reading it. Do you think he was being serious?
Matanda wields the language like a Chimp flings shit at passersby. He's out of his freaking mind.
