Michela Wrong on “What it’s been like reporting on Kagame’s Rwanda”
Michela Wrong has spent nearly three decades writing about Africa, first as a Reuters correspondent based in Cote d’Ivoire and former Zaire, and then as the Financial Times Africa correspondent, based in Kenya. From journalism, she moved into book-writing. Previous books include “In the Footsteps of Mr Kurtz”, the story of Mobutu Sese Seko, “I Didn’t do it for You”, focussing on Eritrea, “It’s Our Turn to Eat”, an examination of Kenyan corruption, and “Borderlines”, a novel set in the Horn of Africa.
Her latest book, “Do Not Disturb”, is a scathing assessment of the Rwandan Patriotic Front and President Paul Kagame. The book is receiving a great deal of attention in the wake of Britain’s announcement of an asylum-processing agreement with Rwanda. Michela Wrong lives in London.
Wrong will be in conversation with John Matisonn and will focus on what it’s been like reporting on Kagame’s Rwanda.
She will take questions.
