It may, instead, be Lt.-Col. Isaac Zida, second-in-command of the presidential security regiment, who has just announced the closure of the borders. [...]

Wow, so this is going to be the 5th +Barcamp Kumasi! I missed the first one though in 2010, when +Nana Kwabena Owusu +Teresa Lemaire +Kwamena Appiah-Kubi +Kofi Ulzen-Appiah +Carl Nutsugah and co were premiering it. We've come far. It's sad Eli Aidam won't be here with us for this event - the Ho & Volta region champion I've known - he passed away earlier this year in Kumasi. We'll have a minute of silence for him. He's a hero, like the many others we'll be celebrating this Saturday at +Barcamp Kumasi. Register and join us for Barcamp Kumasi at the College of Science Auditorium at KNUST on November 1st. This follows two Kumasi Konnect events. The organizing team behind that +kofi yeboah +priscilla sarfo-frimpong +Rasheeda Yehuza +Prince ...

From Zambian Economist Fri Oct 31 2014, 10:53:00

The latest ZCCM-IH Annual Report is embedded below. ZCCM-IH is the investments holding company majority owned by the GRZ and holds minority equity interests in the successor mining companies created after the unbundling and privatization of Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines (ZCCM) in 2000. It is public listed on the LuSE. Its shares also trade on the Euronext stock exchange in Paris.

Under the current shareholding structure, GRZ holds 87.53 % whilst 12.47% is held by minority shareholders. Following privatization of ZCCM in 2000, ZCCM-IH inherited debt of approximately USD 363 million on its balance sheet. And for the next ten years the company was technically insolvent - and therefore unable to pay any dividends to its shareholders on account of this legacy debt.

I never understood what Gil Scot Heron was talking about in his song  "New York is Killing Me" (from his last studio album I'm New Here) I understand now, it means that people so loved, admired and coveted his genius that they smothered him to death. The uniqueness that is the Harlem of yore- from [...]

From VOCATIV:

Police brutality is a concern everywhere. Think Ferguson, Missouri. But we've never seen quite what we found in Nairobi, Kenya. The nation's police force is regarded as one of the most corrupt public institutions in East Africa, according to Transparency International. Worse than that, they are accused of being trigger happy in administering justice. A UN report released in 2009, said the police "frequently execute" people, and a local human rights group, Independent Medico-Legal Unit claims to have documented more than 170 of these execution-style shootings this year alone.
