the other Kenya: IRIN shines

Category: Uncategorized<ADMINNICENAME> @ 2:00 PM

Hats off to the UN’s development news agency, IRIN, for a insightful report on the neglected subject of marginalization and inequality within African countries. In a collection of articles, “Another Kenya,” IRIN shines a bright light on the forgotten have-nots of rural Africa. I never tire of saying that the divide between rich and poor within Africa is now a problem of greater magnitude and urgency than the problem of African marginalization within the world economy, society and culture. The global community remains mired in an outmoded view of Africa’s contradictions within the international arena. IRIN can play a helpful role in re-0rienting media priorities, towards inequalities within Africa, where African solutions — by and for Africans — can do a great deal of good.
