Hezbollah and Israel's Richest Were Both Welcome at a Congo Bank


Hezbollah and Israel’s Richest Were Both Welcome at a Congo Bank
Bloomberg
27/02/2021
(Bloomberg) --
2018 was a good year for Afriland First Group SA, a Switzerland-based company that oversees a network of banks across Africa.
In his opening comments to the annual report for the year, Paul Fokam, the group’s chairman and one of Cameroon’s wealthiest men, highlighted the “challenge of being ethical and compliant while creating value.” He asked readers to bear in mind that “we are in a battlefield where only alertness, flexibility, and perseverance can ensure sustainable victory.”
Little mention was made in the report’s 83 pages of one of the group’s star performers though, its unit in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a vast central African nation rich in natural resources including diamonds, cobalt and copper. While deposits across Afriland’s subsidiaries increased 17%, a PwC audit seen by Bloomberg shows that in Congo, accounts swelled nearly fivefold that year to $279 million, accounting for more than one-tenth of the group’s total at the time.

Zimbabwe activists take the fight to Twitter in a time...


“Alert Zimbabwe: I have received information that the Mnangagwa regime wants to arrest me today for the offence which I don’t know. They are alleging that I undermined the authority of the police by Tweeting about the kid allegedly assaulted by them. I have alerted everyone.”
“I am gathering that after my arrest they want to expose me to Covid-19. If anything happens to me let it be known to Zimbabweans that I am Covid-free as I speak. Few days ago I warned about the plot by the regime & they really want to arrest me for no apparent reason. Oppression.”

Dialogue could have averted Covid-19 border chaos

High-level talks and use of SADC guidelines on the pandemic should have been used to prevent a crisis.

During its assessment tour on the impact made on its early childhood education development for children with disabilities in Chiradzulu, Mangochi and Phalombe, Malawi Council for the Handicapped (MACOHA) took the opportunity to spread awareness of COVID-19 as well as its preventive measures.
MACOHA earlier taught guardians how to produce assistive learning devices

Project coordinator, Mercy Mpunga — who is MACOHA’s women and children programmes officer — said they thought it wise not to take the national awareness campaign for granted but to assess the situation on the ground how best children with disabilities can be protected.

Debt: to get, to bet or to fret?


As the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa’s (OSISA) regional conference on southern Africa’s conundrum opened in Johannesburg today, there was little agreement in the conference room. One word – conundrum – kept both speakers and the audience poles apart as they attempted to decipher what the word means in a context of rising debt levels, state bureaucratic ambivalence and a changing outlook on the movement of international finance on the African continent.
Speaking at the conference, the United Nations (UN) Independent Expert on Foreign Debt and Human Rights, Juan Pablo Bohoslavsky, said the rapid growth of external debt ratios in several countries requires action for a debt crisis to be avoided. He outlined how current debt sustainability analyses ignore potential returns from investment in human and social capital. Such returns could translate into, for example, spending on primary and secondary education, health services and social protection.
