Deputy President tells Western editors to stop generalising about Africa

Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka has told Western newspaper editors to stop generalising about Africa and concentrate more on the continent's success stories. She says issues of real concern, such as Western poaching of Africa's best and brightest talent, are being overlooked as the world's media focus on wars and poverty. Mlambo-Ngcuka addressed the annual world congress of the International Press Institute in Scotland and said out of 54 countries in Africa, only five were in conflict this year. Yet the other 49 countries are easily compromised by failure to acknowledge peace in most countries and note success of individual nations.
