It was a grand event, attended by over 2,500 heads of state, ministers, delegates and journalists. The theme this year was ‘What Africa wants’, with an emphasis on what young Africans want – they are, of course, the continent’s future leaders.
But it took Euromoney by surprise when it discovered that a photo of its journalist covering the meeting was featured on the homepage of the AfDB website, under the title: ‘What young Africans want’. The journalist is indeed young and does write about Africa, but unfortunately isn’t African. But she wouldn’t mind being one of the continent’s future leaders, if necessary.
