I watched a live session of the World Economic Forum today – no I am not in Davos, but watching this from computer in freezing New York. I logged on halfway through. President Jonathan sounded good and very presidential. President Kagame, in answering a question from the floor, was all over the place – unclear what he was trying to say. President Zuma seemed quiet but then came up with a great remark about how problems which are worldwide are sometimes thought of as only pertaining to Africa – he was responding to a question on youth unemployment. The best part for me was seeing the very charming Stan and Marion Bergman in the front row – they have been great supporters of Africa in New York, and NYU’s Africa House.
