Pambazuka on Petina Gappah

This is the Pambazuka version of my little piece on the controversy of the term, African writer.
I thought they did an excellent editorial job. Thanks guys.
"Petina Gappah isn’t betraying her roots by objecting to ‘being labelled the voice of Zimbabwe’, Chielo Zona Eze writes in this week’s Pambazuka News, she just doesn’t want to be pigeon-holed into the ‘transcendental role of saving the African, by telling his or her story’.
