    How many books on development are written from a conservative point of view about aid by non Africans? Hundreds.

    So what’s the fuss? It seems its not Moyo who is guilty of trying to get on camera but all you guys who focus on nothing more than her Africaness! If i was her i would be pretty pissed off that the focus is her nationality!

    you all sound just slightly jealous of the lime light, and pissed of at the fact that an African has dared to challenge you in your field! Surely we “Africans” should just be passive recipeints, grateful for your wonderful interference that will ultimately lead to our development? Surely we “Africans” should let non Africans dictate the research that dictates the lenders who dictate our national policies? How dare we complain……
