A weighty crisis

9th April 2021 An epidemic of gigantic proportions is sweeping through Africa, and some experts say it is more devastating than HIV/Aids. It is good old obesity, and that it is shaping up as a major crisis is rather counterintuitive, given Africa’s frequent portrayal by the world’s media as a hungry and...

Covid denialist of note

2nd April 2021 At the time of writing, Africa was in mourning. News of the passing of Tanzania’s 61-year-old leader, John Magufuli, had just broken. His robust crusade against corruption in high places from early on in his Presidency had endeared him to many, both at home and abroad. So too had his equally... 

New sheriff in town

26th March 2021 So, Patrice Motsepe is the new czar of the beautiful game on this continent, having assumed the presidency of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) a fortnight back. Although he mounted a formidable campaign, in the end, this position came on a silver platter, as the other pretenders to the...

Breath of fresh air

26th February 2021 Air pollution levels tend to rise in lockstep with a country’s economic development, which is often accompanied by an increase in the number of emissions-belching industrial enterprises. But a new study, the results of which were released earlier this month, appears to have turned this... 

Our dangerous cities

19th February 2021 Initiatives such as government’s push against gender-based violence – which culminated in the launch, about a fortnight ago, of a fund to tackle this scourge – are clearly indicative of the overall state of safety and security in our country’s towns and cities, which are home to 66.86% of the... 

Grand hostilities

12th February 2021 Before the madness in Tigray started playing out last year, most of the news coming out of Ethiopia was such that all of us would be proud to be African. A case in point was Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed being named the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019 for ending decades-old hostilities...
