Episode 12: How Important is Nobel Peace Prize for Africa?

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize goes to Abiy Ahmed, the youthful Ethiopian prime minister, for making peace with Eritrea. Does he deserve the prize, given that he’s only been on the spotlight for a short time? Should he have shared the prize with Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki just like Nelson Mandela and Frederik de Klerk? Should Africa still be looking west for validation? Shouldn’t we be aspiring more for recognition in areas of science like medicine, physics and chemistry?

So many questions!

In this episode, Nado, Okong’o and Khaboshi try to make sense of it all.
