Innocent Ndifor mancho

Articles like this give us the impression that there is hope. We look to the future with a bit of pride knowing that we come from a continent that is not only guns and wars and AIDS and dictators. That there are still the sons and daughters of Africa who still believe in "home".

I hope that when there will be a regime change in Cameroon; when we will have a return of democracy and when this kleptocratic orligachy shall be wiped out, then we can have a re-brain drain. The wheels of fortune shall be reversed and the river will flow up hill. God help us.


Finally a breath of fresh air, a drop of hope. We need more media coverage like this, highlighting the possibilities and advancement of Africa. The Western media is only interested in giving Africa coverage when it comes to wars, famine, hopelessness and corruption. Don't even get me started on those endless images of children covered in flies and "charity" organizations whose real intentions are solely rooted in exploitation and boosting white supremacist ideologies. The sad part is that even our African counterparts in the media have adopted this destructive trend. Never do we hear any thing positive; only the negative is being highlighted and capitalized on.
