I’m an optimistic cynic. Born in Africa, raised all over the world, I have a passion to see Africa take its rightful place in the world. Long weary of Africa bashing, continental character assassination and negative branding I am determined to ask: What can Africa do right particularly with regards to economic development? Most of my pieces will be on Africa’s economies. Some pieces will be more formal than others but the guiding thrust is to become one of the growing voices that believe in Africa.

I’m a weekly columnist for the Business Daily.
