Worried Westerners and Africa (quote of the day)

"Worried Westerners … so often seem to fall prey to a benign form of megalomania when it comes to Africa, [but] would do well to accept that salvation is simply not theirs to bestow. They should be more modest, more knowing, and less naive.”

Michela Wrong in It’s Our Turn to Eat. Quoted in a review by Texas in Africa.
