The World Cup is 3 days away. So everybody is writing, blogging, speaking, filming and broadcasting from or about Africa (well, specifically South Africa, but it does not stop them from making generalizations about 53 countries and territories). Of course, things will calm down we know in a few days when the media realizes that hosting a World Cup is a day’s work for Africans. But until then, they’re relentless.
We can try, but we can’t keep up with them by giving you long, nuanced, detailed posts. We have things to do, day jobs to go to, World Cup matches to watch (especially this) and in some cases we have small children to put to bed.
But we can do a lot more and do it on the fly in 140 characters.
