Kamkwamba on The Daily Show Tonight

In his book, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, William Kamkwamba describes how, at age 14, he brought electricity to his small Malawian village by building a windmill from scrap material and what he gleaned from textbooks borrowed from the local library.

Everyone who has met Kamkwamba says he is totally charming and guileless, qualities on display in the following video. Expect to see Jon Stewart charmed this evening when he interviews him on The Daily Show. Also expect to see holds rise.
