Andrew Mwenda at TED

Over on the excellent TED Talks Blog Ugandan journalist Andrew Mwenda gives a provocative speech on how the media should focus less on the bad news coming out of the continent and more on the good and how the answer to Africa’s problems is not more aid. As Ethan Zuckerman notes,

The talk so incensed Bono, who was sitting in the audience, that he spent a good part of his time on stage attempting to rebutt Mwenda, with limited success.

Lest we all note. Mr. Mwenda ain’t scared of big, hairy, Irish rockstars turned development workers.
