New broom that’s sweeping clean

17th May 2019 It always comes as a breath of fresh air when an African leader receives a pat on the back for his or her accomplishments.

Medicine delivery drones take to the skies in Ghana

A region in mourning

12th April 2019 Southern Africa is in mourning. More than 1 000 people have perished since the tropical cyclone, Idai, lashed parts of Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe last month.
