Hypothetical Africa is a digital magazine on all issues African. Hypothetical Africa publishes, amongst others, challenging and thought-provoking articles: the “could have beens” and the “what ifs”. The regular content will include the editorial, articles and interviews with Africans from all walks of life including young Africans or young people of African heritage.
Hypothetical Africa is a yearning for the transformation of the continent. Hypothetical Africa has many dreams for Africa. It imagines, amongst many others, an Africa with:
good, selfless, competent and visionary African leaders
adherence to the rule of law and respect for the basic principles of human rights and more
proper governance and accountability
basic infrastructure for the modern society
citizens speaking up and standing up for the cohesion of our African societies
Hypothetical Africa dreams of an Africa that is not for sale… whatsoever. Hypothetical Africa dreams of an Africa that is not fractured into fiefdoms of politicians but a United States of Africa! There are millions of suggestions from every Kwame, Biko, Ali and de Souza on how to get there.
Hypothetical Africa on the other hand, however, will offer tongue-in-cheek solutions. It will be the hypothetical, the “could have beens” and the “what ifs” approach to highlight issues to prick our consciences and mindsets. It will harp on the “why, what, where, which, when and how” ad nauseam. Hypothetical Africa hopes to channel the thoughts of concerned Africans through satirical, whimsical or sarcastic pieces. Hypothetical Africa proposes to entertain, sadden, enrage, baffle, agitate and challenge its readers.
