AFRICAN LEADER Ali Mufuruki asks the audience at TEDxEuston if Africa is really on the rise.

He asked guests to scrutinise the optimistic but perhaps misguided 'African rising' narrative.

He boldly questioned why six to seven per cent GDP growth was considered impressive for the continent, while eight per cent growth was seen as recession for countries such as China.

Mufuruki is on the board of directors of the Tanzania Central Bank, Technoserve, and the Nation Media Group of Kenya.
