Africa is one of the fastest growing continents in the world, in terms of population. All what we hear about Africa is Ebola, unstable governments and charity organizations going to Africa for help. Africa is bigger than Ebola, bad governments and several such charity organizations. Such organizations should be renamed into social business organizations because they get more out of Africa than what they claim to give to Africa and for Africa. Just as the African-American Musician, Akon, said on Aljazeera,“Africa doesn’t need saving, in fact Africa is the one doing the saving because every natural resources we see in the world comes from Africa.” What we aim to do here, on African stories,is what late BBC journalist, Komla Dimor, said. “It is not so much about what the International Media does; it is what you write about yourself.” We tend to write African stories that are real, intended to promote the good things that happen in the African continent. This section will focus mostly on the achievements of Africans, and the interesting things that one can find when they visit Africa. As Brian Jackman said, “Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same.But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it? How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths?”
We invite all African writers and journalist to send us good African stories.
