Africa: Looking to Latin America?

AfroBlog responds to the question put by the BBC “Should Africa look to Latin America”.…For Africa it would be ideal to learn from the experiences of Latin America but realistically newly independent nations in Africa have scarcely learned from the experiences of some of the first independent states in Africa”


  • Of corse, Africa can learn from any other coutry but I am sure that two processes are never alike. What seems to me imperative to Africa is to build a continent based on democracy, human rights and corruption free but on this way Afrika have to go his own way.

  • AFrican woman – so the solution is to use Global Voices as a free advertising space for an African dating agency which is no doubt a significant step in the fight against a corruption free democratic Africa!
