The Africa Quiz 2005

Nah? Are we still nursing that throbbing headache after a bit too much cheer at the New Years Eve party? Here is something that will get you back into shape Zak Zak.

Ethan Zuckerman of Global Voices Online and the ...My Heart's in Accra blog has come up with a great end of the year 2005 Africa Quiz. For some great fun and to see how much you have learned about Africa from reading blogs, online news articles, and other media sources go over to EZ's place and take the test.

Jewels in the Jungle was asked to submit one question for the quiz so AFTER you have completed the test please click on this link to learn more about our Africa 2005 News Item entry. If my guess is right 8 out of 10 people have answered this question wrong on the quiz so far.

Don’t cheat, take the quiz first! I know that it is tempting, but don't do it.

Then after you have aced that little mindteaser go over to the BBC News site for a run at their Africa News 2005 Quiz. I blew it on this quiz (only 4 out of 8 correct) but maybe you will do better. Happy New Year 2006 to all of my readers.

I found this blog surfing.

I'm sure I did better on the test than most from the USA. That's not saying much.

I link to several African and African oriented sites on my blog including: Sudan Watch, The Zimbabwean Pundit,Yebo Gogo, Molara Wood, Amandla Now, laspapi.

Thanks for stopping by Renegade Eye and for taking the test. As for blog readers in the U.S.A. presumably not doing well on the Africa Quiz, you may be surprised at how many people in the States do read and learn a great deal about Africa these days. Even some people way up there in the cold, dark North Woods of Minnesota...:-)

Some interesting posts over at your place, especially your views and the related comment threads on Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales. Keep up the good work.

I scored 70% in the BlogAfrica Quiz.

It took quite some time to load.
And I don't have extra time to go over to the BBC.

Thanks for the trip.

God bless.

Shame on me! I scored 50%!

Tough questions I must say!

Thanks for stopping by Orikinla. 70% is a decent score but do try out the quiz at BBC (it's tougher).

Bill Ainashe I am just shocked at your low score! And you used to be such a good student too. Don't tell your bosses about that low score whatever you do. They probably think that you are an in-house expert on African affairs..:-)
