In Cape Town, Africa was shy

The problem with Afro-optimism is the way its acolytes skirt around the issue. Once there are white business people in the room (and they are often more in number than the hosts, whether you are in Dubai, Rio or Nairobi) African discussants start to deny that our leaders are short sighted, are not bravely confronting the demons that keep us down and are in fact, part of the problem than the solution.
