Africa Urged to Move Towards Afro-Realism

People need to move decisively away from both Afro-optimistic and Afro-pessimistic headlines towards Afro-realism, says Ibrahim says

As the continent progresses in key areas, Mo Ibrahim, philanthropist and founder of Mo Ibrahim Foundation, says we need to move decisively away from both Afro-optimistic and Afro-pessimistic headlines.
 
The Foundation published the ‘2013 Ibrahim Index of African Governance’, an index which tells us that the outlook is mixed and that neither Afro-pessimism nor Afro-optimism does justice to modern Africa.
 
An honest assessment of the continent as supported by the index reveals that governance trends in Africa are both complex and diverse. It further notes that Africa's many achievements, but it should also include a pragmatic acknowledgement of the distance Africa has to go.
