Emmanuel Nado and Edwin Okong’o, award-winning African journalists and radio personalities, offer their unique, bold and unapologetic perspectives on African life, news, and culture.

They go beyond the simplistic and lazy explanations of colonialism, slavery, and “brain drain” to argue that unless we Africans become brave enough to point fingers at ourselves, we’ll always be at mercy of foreigners. This podcast discusses some of the ways we can start talking straight about the flaws that make us an attractive target for those looking for a continent to exploit.

Africa Straight Talk is produced by Khaboshi Imbukwa.
