Letter to The Times from Resource Africa

In response to The Times editorial (“Blood Money”, 7 December), Resource Africa has submitted a response to the Letters Page which, amongst other observations, states:

“You correctly warn that insidious misinformation can influence vital upcoming policy decisions. In this case, those decisions will have important consequences for the lives of millions of people living in rural African communities currently reeling from severe health and economic impacts of COVID-19.”

“However, while warning about misinformation you perpetuate falsehoods such as trophy hunting endangering wildlife populations and not creating economic benefits for impoverished rural communities. And by highlighting notorious misinformation campaigns that illegitimately claim to speak for African people, you imply that all African voices on these issues are untrustworthy.”
