Trump: Good riddance!

22nd January 2021 So many labels can be pinned onto Donald Trump. But two recently acquired ones – ‘former President of the US’ and ‘erstwhile Twitter user’ – give me a hell of a lot of satisfaction. With his occupancy of the White House having been terminated on January 20, four years earlier than he would have... 

African lives matter

15th January 2021 Much stink was kicked up in May last year when American George Floyd died at the hands of a police officer in a clearly racist incident. The din of condemnation was universal and among the more strident voices were those of leaders of African nations and multilateral bodies. Among the first... 

A year like no other

11th December 2020 Queen Elizabeth II popularised the Latin phrase annus horribilis – which means ‘horrible year’ – when, back in 1992, she delivered a speech marking the fortieth anniversary of her ascension to the throne. Her exact words were: “1992 is not a year on which I shall look back with undiluted...

Reprieve for Nairobi fig tree

4th December 2020 Bad news abounds these days – ranging from dictators who are clinging on to power by hook or crook to death on a wide scale as a result of Covid-19 and sagging economies, with the attendant impact on livelihoods.

Deteriorating governance

27th November 2020 The bad news keeps piling up. Just when we thought we would see no further depressing headlines than those related to the toll that the coronavirus pandemic continues to take on lives and livelihoods alike, in mid-November, Africans woke to reports that the way in which they are governed has...

Donald Trump: Good riddance!

20th November 2020 Donald Trump is such a sore loser. But, despite his bizarre claims that he was cheated out of victory, he will have to make way for Joe Biden as the new White House occupant, come January 20. I’m sure the majority of Africans are not going to miss Trump, the US’s first one-term President since... 

Covid: US must learn from us

13th November 2020 The predictions were dire. Owing to Africa’s weak health systems – which the continent’s well-heeled elites are known to eschew in the same way one would stay clear of the plague – millions upon millions of its sons and daughters were expected to be consigned to an early grave by the grim reaper...
