Aiding Africa

David Kilgour, MP for Edmonton Beaumont, wrote an article in the Globe and Mail of some books to read if you were interested in better understanding of the history of Africa's past and realistic picture of the challenges faced. He said it best that "Africans have always had solutions to their own problems. It's time we start including them fully in the conversation" as a response to the writings of Kenya's first president Nkrumah and other Africans seeking change on their continent. Western policy: not necessarily the best way to go. The answers may already be sitting right under their noses.
