[wanabidii] Afrometrics: "If we African cannot measure ourselves, we cannot manage ourselves".

Dear All,

The Africa Agenda 2063 needs a new standard of measurement. Until now all sorts of Euro-centric metrics have been used to measure Africa in terms of various dimensions and aspects.

I am currently preparing a paper on what I call 'Afrometrics', the African science of self-measurement and self- management, based on Mwalimu Nyerere's philosophy of Self-Reliance. If you are interested kindly let me know so that, with sufficient number, I can organize a conference at which I will present my ideas.

You are all welcome!
