Designer Ozwald Boateng on Africa's future

The debate about aid was reignited this week after South Africa complained about the British government's decision to no longer give aid to the country.

"The infrastructure in Africa is really what's holding Africa back," fashion designer Ozwald Boateng told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

Boateng added: "The reality of it is that Africa's not being able to take full advantage of its resources."

"We need to get Africa right for the rest of the world," he warned.
