Africans in the Diaspora urged to play role in defending continent's progress

Africans in the Diaspora have been urged to play their role in defending the continent's progress made since its first attainment of freedom more than 50 years ago.

This plea was made by President Hage Geingob as he returned to the historic Apollo Theatre in Harlem in New York 40 years later, as one of the guests during a panel discussion titled "Next Narrative Africa, the Bridge''.

The conversation examined the changing narrative on the continent, which used to be associated only with poverty, hunger, and other notions contrary to socio-economic development.
