Best new blogs

I have discovered two best new blogs for my entry. one about a young African should i call him manufacturer or implementer called Kamkwamba from Malawi. his story has been blogged by very many people. but now with the help of some well wishers he has established his own blog to tell his own story in his own words. its inspiring to say the least.

The other called Saharan vibe treasure of information both historical and contemporary about Africa and her resources especially her people. the blog has been there for a while but the information is strikingly refreshing. I have made the Saharan vibe a daily must read.

    I agree with you, these are two top notch blogs.

    I like how African Liz has something about all 53 nations on the continent or is it all 47 nations in sub-saharan? At either rate, I think she has the most complete selection of facts about the continent.

    And Kamkwamba is simply marvelous, the kid is a genius. In fact I think he is the future of Malawi. And kids around the world would do well to read from his personal script. How else coan one describe a 14 year old kid who drops out of school due to monetary constraints-only to go on and build rural electricity using plastic spare parts and bicycle parts to build a windmill generator?

    His story makes me think that if all villages had a Kamkwamba, then the politicians would diminish in terms of relevance...It will be fun to watch his future footsteps.

  5. Dude, your old man should not be at the helm of CMA, he's a lame duck CEO and a failed stock broker who ruined Sterling securities and conned alot of people out of their money...why would you be trusted as a fidauciary of investors funds if you are a chip off the old block?

    I'm not hating, just pointing out facts and expressing my views.
