Hope for Africa in lead up to Obama Inauguration

Tags: , , ,

These days, all roads lead to Washington, where senator Barrack Obama will be inaugurated on January 20 as the 44th president of the U.S.

The expectations of what Obama will do for Africa are high. Whether Africa will gain from an Obama presidency or not is the subject of much chatter on many Africa blogs, email groups, television shows.

What is everyone talking about? Who has done more or could do more for Africa?

Outgoing President–George W. Bush has touted PEPFAR (The Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) as a monumental achievement for him, with millions of lives that have been saved through AIDS medicine.

Former President, William Jefferson Clinton made two prominent trips to Africa during his presidency as did President Bush.

How many trips will Obama make to Africa? Does this even matter?
