An American wrongly chosen to go to Africa as a Doctor
10 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ernest Napoleon was fantastic and extraordinarily incarnated the role.I watched the film "Going Bongo" in London on 04.06.2015. As African, originally from Democratic Republic of Congo I was impressed by the value of this film by the fact this film highlights hard conditions which people in Africa achieve their duties. My advice is that this film can be used as catalyst in development fora. Ernest Napoleon was very impressive and very intelligent in his reactions as strange when he arrived in Tanzania. I am sure that the time he passed in Africa before to go to America has helped him. But he is naturally very clever and wise.
