Can famous Africans bring peace?
The African Union has recently announced the appointment of 14 peace ambassadors, to promote the 2010 African year of peace and security.
The list includes famous African sports people and musicians such as Maria Mutola, Angelique Kidjo and Michael Essien. The AU commission chairperson Jean Ping says the peace ambassadors are vital if the year of peace is to succeed.
So Africa Have Your Say is asking, what can we expect these famous names to achieve? Can Africa's own celebrities be real agents of change on the continent?
