Africa’s energy revolution has been largely overlooked because of the tendency to focus on the kind of stories that have come to define Africa, stories of strife and suffering such as disease outbreaks, disasters and terrorism when covering Africa.
The stories we do not hear enough of are the narratives about the resilience of Africa’s people and their enduring entrepreneurial spirit. Africa today should be defined by its steady, remarkable progress.
