Some Africans You've Never Heard Of

Can anyone guess what all of the following individuals have in common (other than being Africans, of course)?

  • Amon Simutowe
  • Watu Kobese
  • Kenny Solomon
  • Robert Gwaze
  • Stanley Chumfwa
Given the difficult circumstances all of these individuals would have had to come to terms with in their home countries, it's quite amazing that they've managed to get as far as they have. Were circumstances better, who knows how many Africans might have been able to follow on the heels of Maurice Ashley?
