A really brilliant idea! For better or for worse, a large number of commuters pick up Metro on the tube each morning. I was happy to read Ndesanjo's piece this morning. This is probably the only year for as long as we will be able to remember that Africa will occupy so many column inches. So to have intelligent, perceptive comments from smart African journalists in the mainstream will at the very least send a clear message that Africa is anything but poor when it comes to ideas.
