AN AFRICAN SATIRE - BLOG INSIDE

So it’s obvious CNN and Western broadcasters have a stereotype view of Africa. The news don’t lie, but the only problem is that they keep showing only one side of Africa and that’s what stays in the minds of the people. Binyavanga Wainaina explores this frustration in the satirical essay ‘How to write about Africa’. When writing about Africa, please make sure you include naked warriors, loyal servants, diviners and seers, and wise men. An African novel will not be complete without ‘The starving African waiting for the benevolence of the west. You must use words like darkness, corruption, safari, guerrillas and tribal. Horrible things always happen to Africans, like starvation, Ebola and female circumcision. The list is endless but you get the idea. If you write nice things about Africa, then you risk people not believing in your authenticity.

Karen Blixen (Out of Africa) - I once had a farm at the foot of Ngong hills.

 

 If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game in which my name is, or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me, or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?
