I’ve only discovered it now, nearly two months after it was published, but every blogger and journalist ought to read Koranteng Ofosu-Amaah’s amazing, rambling post about the underreported stories from Africa.
Subtitled “100 issues that the journalist in me feels the media should investigate”, the post nods at loads of interesting stories the author would like to hear more about.
I wasted some time trying to add some value by distilling it into a shorter, bullet-pointed list for the time-constrained, but it just isn’t possible (or appropriate). Read it all. If you’re short on time, scroll down and start reading at the cross-head “An African’s Perspective” That’s were the rapid-fire list of underreported stories is.
