Needed: Stories on Africa's complexity

Complexity arises when dependencies among elements in a system becomes important. Story-telling is one way of dealing with alternative possibilities in such systems, or in other words, to make sense of the world. 

Africa needs stories or narratives on possible ways to deal with the continents' complex realities. Africans love to tell stories. That's a promising start.

This is just a thought after reading this interesting contribution on Scenarios and resilience.
