This for me is the most compelling debate about representations of Africa, of African problems and African people. I personally think it does not matter how beautifully/powerfully/poignantly/movingly one tells the story of Africa as long as the narrative is a distortion that person has done a great disservice and the KONY2012 video is a case in point. That video cannot go unchallenged.
