Drug trafficking - Drug Trafficking is a global illicit trade involving the cultivation, manufacture, distribution and the sale of substances which are subject to drug prohibition law. A state with no ability to protect its territory, a strolling economy, no policy force to speak of and an overbearing and corrupt military is the ideal place for narco traffickers and other element to run the illicty. We face particular challenge in West Africa and Sahel. The latest estimates have found 1.25 billion of cocaine transiting through West Africa each year. West Africa is no longer a transit route for drug traffickers but a growing destination, with more than a million user of illicit drug. We must help countries of the region strengthen their capacity to ensure public safety and security. Law enforcement and health should fully support the ECOWAS Regional action plans to address the growing problem of drug trading in West Africa. Our aim is to relive citizens of the burden of crime, but also to lift them out of ...
Beat or be beaten as GHANA meets NAIJA quakes Accra on May 24 It is no secret the rivalry between Ghana and Nigeria in various facets especially that of entertainment and sports.

As early as nine in the morning, the oldest city in West Africa had been agog with security operatives swoopping on the town, took positions in strategy places.

Abraha EMPEROR OF ETHIOPIA WHOSE ADOPTION OF CHRISTIANITY CHANGED THE FACE OF THE WORLD (c. A.D. 350) FEW MEN have had greater influence on world history than Abraha, Emperor of Ethiopia, even though he lived 1600 years ago. His decision to change the religion of his country from paganism to Christianity probably changed the fate of white Western civilization. But for this, Europe might now be Moslem instead of Christian. When Islam was sweeping through all North Africa and southern Asia, Ethiopia held firmly against it--for more than a thousand years Ethiopia was the Verdun, so to speak, of Christianity in the East. Had Islam b/e, en able to conquer her, it would have swept over all of East Africa and effected a junction with the Islamic powers in Central find West Africa, and the Christian powers, which were European and white, might not have been able to get a foothold in Africa at all. Furthermore, had there been no Ethiopian opposition, Islam in its invasion of Europe in the eighth century--it reache ...
Akufo-Addo to Mahama: Use ECOWAS position to impact the 340 million lives in West Africa Source: Ghana | Myjoyonline.com | Jerry Tsatro Mordy Date: 02-04-2014 Time: 11:04:10:am Nana Akufo-Addo The 2012 presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo has challenged president John Mahama to use his new position as ECOWAS Chairman, to impact positively on the lives of the people in the sub region. President Mahama is the third Ghanaian president to have headed the sub regional body after Jerry John Rawlings and John Agyekum Kufuor, following his election last weekend as new ECOWAS Chair. In a release issued Wednesday to congratulate him in his new office, Nana Addo noted, the president must seize the opportunity to hasten the process of West African integration which will benefit the over 300 million people.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says it is taking "very seriously" the current outbreak of the Ebola virus in West Africa. Out of 122 cases recorded in Guinea so far, at least 80 patients have died, with a further four deaths in Liberia. What is Ebola? Ebola is a viral illness whose initial symptoms can include a sudden fever, intense weakness, muscle pain and a sore throat, according to the World Health Organization. And that is just the beginning: the next stage is vomiting, diarrhoea and - in some cases - both internal and external bleeding. The disease infects humans through close contact with infected animals, including chimpanzees, fruit bats and forest antelope. It then spreads from one person to another: by direct contact with infected blood, bodily fluids or organs, or indirectly through contact with contaminated environments. Even funerals of Ebola victims can be a risk, if mourners have direct contact with the body of the deceased. The incubation period can last from two days to three weeks ...
bola virus disease: background and summary Disease Outbreak News 3 APRIL 2014 - WHO is supporting the national authorities in the response to an outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD; formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever). The outbreak is now confirmed to be caused by a strain of ebolavirus with very close homology (98%) to the Zaire ebolavirus. This is the first time the disease has been detected in West Africa. Cases were first reported from forested areas in south-eastern Guinea. The outbreak has rapidly evolved and several districts and Conakry have reported cases and deaths caused by EVD. A small number of suspected cases and deaths has also been reported from neighbouring countries with all of them having crossed from Guinea. Confirmed cases have been reported from Guinea and Liberia. Latest information on suspected and confirmed cases and deaths Genus Ebolavirus is one of three members of the Filoviridae family (filovirus), along with genus Marburgvirus and genus Cuevavirus. Genus Ebolavirus c ...
In the West African country Guinea, 122 people were diagnosed with Ebola. One of the most lethal viruses known to humans, it has reportedly spread to the country’s capital and possibly to neighboring Liberia In the past several months, Ebola has leaped from a remote forested corner of Guinea in West Africa to the congested coastal capital of Conakry, spreading panic and fear in its wake. Even if it doesn’t liquefy internal organs in quite the graphic manner described in the 1995 thriller Outbreak, the Ebola virus, which inspired the movie, is one of the most lethal known to man, on par with untreated HIV/AIDS. So far 122 people have been diagnosed in this latest outbreak, in addition to six suspected cases in neighboring Liberia. Eighty-three cases have resulted in death. In response Senegal has closed its borders and Senegalese singer Youssou N’dour cancelled an upcoming concert in Conakry. Ebola has killed at least 1700 people since it was first identified in simultaneous 1976 outbreaks in Democra ...

Beware, Ebola virus is dangerous April 3, 2014by Bukola Adebayo 1 Comment Just in case you missed the newsflash this week, the deadly Ebola virus, for the first time, has found its way into West Africa, a region that Nigeria is part of. The outbreak, which began in Guinea’s south eastern forest region last month, is causing widespread panic as death toll rises and the outbreak continues to spread, According to media reports, more than 125 cases have been documented across three countries — Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone; and as of the last count, about 82 persons have lost their lives to this tropical virus. What Ebola is The World Health Organisation describes the Ebola Virus Disease as a viral haemorrhagic fever and one of the most virulent viral diseases known to humankind. Ebola is regarded in the medical world as the deadliest virus on earth, not only because it has no known cure, but also because it is one of the world’s lethal infections: it could kill within hours or few days of symptoms, ...
Let all prayer for mama Liberia so that this deadly disease called EBOLA can be controlled oh. see below for more info about EBOLA and it prevention: Guinea: Fact box - Ebola - Profile of a Killer Ebola is suspected to have killed more than 70 people in Guinea in the last two months - the first fatal outbreak of the virus in West Africa. Below are some facts on one of the world's most lethal infectious diseases. Scientists first identified Ebola following an outbreak in 1976 in Sudan and Zaire, now known as Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Samples sent to Belgium were initially screened for Yellow Fever and Marburg, but the results came back negative. The new virus was named Ebola after the river in Zaire near where the outbreak was recorded. Ebola, a haemorrhagic fever, has one of the highest case fatality rates in the world, with some strains killing 90 percent of victims as in an outbreak in DRC in 2003. There are five official strains: Zaire, Sudan, Cote d'Ivoire, Reston and Bundibugyo. Ebola has k ...

Has President Sirleaf publicly address this Ebola crisis either by National Address or a Press Conference? Given the potential magnitude of this virus, for the president to show no leadership is alarming and of grieve concern. As awful as the Senators are, they are the only elected officials showing some kind of leadership and swift actions. With recent news of 7 confirmed cases of the Ebola virus in Liberia, the president chose to only speak on Small Arms Proliferation in West Africa at the EU-Africa summit. Not even a news conference with the traveling Liberian press to address the Ebola virus. It saddens me that she showing no leadership on this issue as she has done with governmental corruption.
One Tech Guru’s Crusade to Ban Handshaking - . By ABC News TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington wants to ban handshaking. If you ever meet TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington, you might not want to shake his hand. It’s not that he doesn’t wash his hands in the men’s room or anything like that. It’s that he’s been on a crusade since 2009 to end the “goddamned barbaric practice of handshaking,” as he so eloquently put it on his personal blog, UnCrunched. Arrington said he recently came down with the flu after attending a conference, and he suspects he got the virus after shaking hands, which he called a “repulsively stupid activity,” in his blog post. He wrote that the only reason we shake hands is because it’s rude not to, but the practice can spread illnesses around. But with outbreaks of the measles and the mumps on the rise again — not to mention an Ebola outbreak in West Africa — how worried should we be about shaking hands? Handshaking is one of the modes of transmission for ...
This Economic Partnership Agreement{EPA} between West Africa and Europe appears not to favor ECOWAS countries.With respect, Ghana and Cote de'Voir have unwittingly signed this Agreement.Nigeria is still contemplating whether or not to sign it.I think it portends danger for West Africa to open up 75% of it's market to Europe for 20 months{or is it 5years now} under the EPA with a few billion Euros as the bait.This is very lopsided!If you ask me, Nigeria should be selfish this time.Don't sign this thing.Period! The fact that Ghana & co have signed EPA is not a compulsory indication that Nigeria should follow.While West Africa needs to approach the EPA en bloc, Nigeria is sure to suffer the most casualty from the negative effect of this EPA bcos we own over 60% of the West African market.Jobs are likely to be lost and indigenous businesses closed down bcos of EPA!The effect may be like the SAP of the Gen. IBB days! I am happy that the Olusegun Aganga led ministry of Trade & Investment is giving EPA a second ...

My Country My beautiful country Ghana is located in West Africa. It is bordered by Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east, Gulf of Guinea to the south and Ivory Coast to the west. The capital of Ghana is Accra which is where I grew up. Our official language is English but we have other local languages, the most popular ones being Twi and Ga. The official currency in Ghana is the Ghana cedi. In the 2010 census, the estimated population of Ghana was 24.2million. Ghana is divided into 10 administrative regions: Ashanti, capital Kumasi Brong Ahafo, capital Sunyani Central, capital Cape Coast Eastern, capital Koforidua Greater Accra, capital Accra Northern, capital Tamale Upper East, capital Bolgatanga Upper West, capital Wa Volta, capital *** Western, capital Sekondi-Takoradi The Ghanaian flag consists of three colours - red, gold and green, with a black star in the middle. This became the country's official flag in 1957 after Ghana gained its independence. The red represents the blood that was shed towa ...

Grand old osprey: Lady returns to Loch of the Lowes nature reserve The UK's oldest known osprey returned to her nest at a Scottish wildlife reserve - only to end up in a mid-air showdown with a love rival. The "veteran matriarch", affectionately known as Lady and thought to be 28 years old, has nested at the Loch of the Lowes in Perthshire for a record-breaking 24 consecutive years. Staff at the wildlife reserve identified her through her plumage and eye markings when she landed at 6.49am after completing her 3,000-mile migration from West Africa. On arrival, the osprey who has also given birth to a record number of chicks, found her mate in a nest with a different female, but dive-bombed the rival out of sight. Emma Rawling, The Scottish Wildlife Trust's Perthshire Ranger, said: "Lady is a veteran matriarch. "We never take her return for granted because she is getting old and it's a long journey from West Africa. "And we were not even sure whether it was going to work out this year, because there was a r ...

ok so I had a quick trip to Lagos. (first time in Nigeria). It was actually my first ever business oriented trip to West Africa (previous visits have either been tourist trips or filming the documentary back in the day). Although it was a very short trip the culture and context shift was in full enough effect (providing you pay attention) that it reminded me how useful it can be to immerse yourself in an alien environment. Most of the time was spent in meetings either at the house or in multiple offices - but I did get to explore Oshodi market also. Very high crime rate (pickpockets and straight-up armed robbery etc) with the odd kidnapping (of ex-pat execs) here and there. Not entirely recommended for the casual visitor ;) In fact it's a prohibited area for any official western corporate visitors (if for no other reason than you stick out like a sore thumb - making you an obvious target). I was the only white person there. Aside from the near arrest/shakedown (more detail in the brief photo descriptions) ...
May the good Lord have mercy on our people in Guinea, Liberia and the entire West African sub-region and safe them from this terrible disease called Ebola. May God make the remedy of this deadly disease available as soon as possible. Long life the people of Guinea, Liberia and West Africa.
Military action against Germany during World War I The South African Union Defence Force saw action in a number of areas: 1. It dispatched its army to German South-West Africa (later known as South West Africa and now known as Namibia). The South Africans expelled German forces and gained control of the former German colony. (See South-West Africa Campaign.) 2. A military expedition under General Jan Smuts was dispatched to German East Africa (later known as Tanganyika and now known as Tanzania). The objective was to fight German forces in that colony and to try to capture the elusive German General von Lettow-Vorbeck. Ultimately, Lettow-Vorbeck fought his tiny force out of German East Africa into Mozambique then Northern Rhodesia, where he accepted a cease-fire three days after the end of the war. (See East African Campaign (World War I).) 3. 1st South African Brigade troops were shipped to France to fight on the Western Front.

With President John Mahama as the chairman of ECOWAS, I have no confidence that they will reject the EPAs. He had earlier in his State of the Nation Address expressed his confidence in the EPAs and in the process contradicting his over-trumpeted point of local production and consumption. I was not surprised to hear Hon Hannah Tetteh say that Ghana as a country had no position on the Economic Partnership Agreements and that Ghana would go with what ECOWAS decides. She was just evading the question because Ghana's position is unpopular. The question is if the question is put at ECOWAS as to whether or not West Africa should sign the EPAs, will Ghana vote for or against??. The extent of Neo-colonialism is much deeper in Africa than we can perceive.
Zimbabwe's deputy health minister said Thursday that the southEast African country is on high alert to the deadly epidemic of Ebola virus in West Africa, which killed nearly 60 people in Guinea alone.

Some people are just too stupid in thinking.I have a reason for saying this!. There was this guy I know who is a very good born-again.it happened that he was going through some tough times but he held to his Christian faith like other good disciples of Christ.The more he prayed,the more he had problems.so all his friends and enemies started mocking him,saying: you said Idol worship is bad,but why are you passing through battles,there were even some that claimed to be Christians, they were even worst in criticizing him.But like Shadrach,Meshach and Abednego he never gave up!.To cut a long story short,today he is CEO of a Multinational Company in Ghana,West Africa. From this little story,I believe as long as you are doing the right thing,God is always with you in every trials of life.He will not allow any temptation bigger than you to come.Keep pressing on!.keep praying!!!.Don't give up.All the apostles in the Bible went through the same battles of life. 3.

THE EBOLA VIRUS Health care providers in West Africa are struggling to arrest the Ebola virus from reaching epidemic proportions in Guinea where about 100 infections have already been registered, according to Guinea's Ministry of Health. The first cases of the virus infection were recorded in Guinea this year, and about 59 people have died although the disease could be confirmed in only 13 of the cases. Authorities are taking preventive steps to keep the virus from reaching the capital Conakry, which could be catastrophic as the city is home to about 3 million people. Messages are being broadcast on state radio and television advising people to wash their hands and avoid contact with sick people, the All Africa reports. Guinea is supplied with medicines required to cope with the dreaded disease, but stores in the country are running out of chlorine and bleach. The price of chlorine has dramatically risen owing to a shortage in Guinea's south-eastern town of Macenta. "Can you imagine that people are hesita ...

please read about Liberia the smallest and second poorest country in the world. Liberia Listeni/laɪˈbɪəriə/, officially the Republic of Liberia, is a country in West Africa bordered by Sierra Leone to its west, Guinea to its north and Ivory Coast to its east. It covers an area of 111,369 square kilometres (43,000 sq mi) and is home to about 3.7 million people.

The country possesses about forty percent of the remaining Upper Guinean rainforest. Liberia is the only country in Africa founded by United States colonization while occupied by native Africans. Beginning in 1820, the region was colonized by ...

Nyako's contribution at the 3-Day Symposium on Current Economic, Social and Security Challenges Facing Northern Nigeria, in Washington DC, USA Organised by US Institute of Peace - March 17-19, 2014 First, I should like to sincerely thank the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) in support and collaboration with the Governments of Norway and Denmark for hosting this 3-Day Symposium on current economic, social and Security challenges in Northern Nigeria.

AFRICANS A FOOLISH/COWARDICE RACE. Historical records show that Islam and Christianity played an important role in enslaving Africans. The Arab-controlled Trans-Saharan slave trade helped to institutionalize slave trading on the continent. And during the 'age of expedition', European Christians witnessed caravans loaded with Africans en-route to the Middle East. Others arriving much later in West Africa observed slavery in African societies, leading them to assume that African enslavement was intrinsic to the continent. For many of these early European and Arab explorers, the Bible and Koran was not only regarded as infallible, it was also their primary tool and those christians looking for answers to explain differences in ethnicity, culture, and slavery, found them in Genesis 9: 24-27, which appeared to suggest that it was all a result of 'sin'. In the Genesis passage, Africans were said to be the descendants of Ham, the son of Noah, who was cursed by his father after looking at his naked form. Moreover ...
I had a morning gig today, drumming for Etienne as he taught 3 groups of 'Brownies' and their lovely moms some traditional dance moves from the Dahomey area of West Africa. The dance was 'Agbadja' and fun was had by all. Really fun. The girls have been learning about West Africa; the food, the music, the dance, and other cultural customs. My afternoon classes were very fun, and one of my students that is going to the east coast until July 4th, made me some baked yummy and bought me a coffee mug and such a nice card... She will be in New Hampshire, so if my rhythm network could dial me in a good beginner class in Hampton life would be dandy! I'm tired, it's almost midnight, and I'm moving tomorrow. Again. Big Love everyone and goodnight.
Simon Sparrow (1925-2000) was an American folk artist, a painter and mixed media artist who was born in West Africa and grew up in North Carolina on a Cherokee Reservation. He was a self-taught artist and received a Wisconsin Visual Art Lifetime Achievement Award (WVALAA) in 2012.[1] Sparrow's work is considered folk art and his piece Assemblage with Found Objects is held by the Smithsonian American Art Museum on the 3rd Floor, Luce Foundation Center.[2] Simon Sparrow began creating art at age seven and also began his practice of informal and street preaching in his youth.[3] He moved to Philadelphia and enlisted in the army in 1942. He later moved to New York before settling in Madison, Wisconsin.[4] Sparrow is best known for his mixed media constructions and paintings, which he began creating once he moved to Madison, Wisconsin in the 1970s.[4] One of his pieces, "Simon Sparrow Outsider Art Picture, ca. 1980" was appraised on Antiques Roadshow in July 2009 for $6,000-8,000.[5] On 20 May 2012, Sparrow wa ...
Zik Was Unequalled Patriot – Buhari Former Head of State, General Mohammadu Buhari, yesterday in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, eulogised late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, describing him as a true Nigerian with great vision for the country. “Azikiwe was the most out-spoken and internationally recognised Nigerian nationalist. He was a true Nigerian and his vision extended beyond Nigeria or West Africa. He dreamt of continental union, similar to what Europe is trying to do now. He deserves all the honour and accolades we can heap on him albeit posthumously,” Buhari declared at the 50th anniversary lecture of Nnamdi Azikiwe Hall, University of Ibadan, where he was the chairman. The lecture, which had as theme, “Youth and the future of Nigerian Politics”, was delivered by former Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Shettima Mustafa. The former head of state lauded Azikiwe for his contribution to the development of Nigeria, revealing that he had known the late former president since his school days. According to the one- ...
March 21 ; Namibia - Independence Day The history of Namibia has passed through several distinct stages from being colonised in the late nineteenth century to Namibia's independence on 21 March 1990. From 1884, Namibia was a German colony: German South-West Africa. After the First World War, the League of Nations mandated South Africa to administer the territory. Following World War II, the League of Nations was dissolved in April 1946 and its successor, the United Nations, instituted a Trusteeship system to bring all of the former German colonies in Africa under UN control. South Africa objected arguing that a majority of the territory's people were content with South African rule. Legal argument ensued over the course of the next twenty years until, in October 1966, the UN General Assembly decided to end the mandate, declaring that South Africa had no other right to administer the territory and that henceforth South-West Africa was to come under the direct responsibility of the UN (Resolution 2145 XXI o ...

Liberia: Executive Mansion Lied - More Documents in PR Saga Released By Henry Karmo, 18 March 2014 Monrovia — In what now appears a tussle between a member of the House of Representatives and the Executive Mansion regarding huge payments purportedly for public relations abroad, the lawmaker in the fray has released more documents in support of his call for an investigation of the Executive Mansion for what he termed 'exploitation' indicating that the third branch of Government headed by the President has lied to the Liberian people. Representative Bhofal Chambers (Congress for Democratic Change, Maryland County) on Monday March 17, 2014, unveiled new information to back his claims. Speaking at the launch of an Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) sponsored project being implemented by the Center Against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing in Liberia (CAMTEFIL) Monday Representative Chambers provided more documentary evidence in support of his claims. In the document, a copy of which is i ...

One of the worst episodes in the slave’s life was during the dreaded Middle Passage journey from West Africa to the Americas, where the conditions on the slave ships were horrifying, with between 200 and 400 captives crammed into the bottom of the ships. On arriving, public burnings or *** Barbecues were carried out when white mobs set out to burn Black Americans alive or burn their dead bodies after a lynching. This helped to strengthen the conviction that blacks were less than human or on the same level as the wild beasts of the earth.

Nigeria bloodshed: Who are Boko Haram? By Joseph Netto, Nima Elbagir and Nick Thompson, CNN February 26, 2014 -- Updated 1547 GMT (2347 HKT) STORY HIGHLIGHTS Nigeria is battling an Islamist insurgency that has claimed 3,000 lives since 2009 Boko Haram is fighting for stricter Sharia law in Nigeria's predominately Muslim north Rights groups have blamed both Boko Haram and the military for atrocities against civilians Oil-rich Nigeria is a key U.S. partner and the economic powerhouse of West Africa (CNN) -- At least 29 students died in a February 25 attack on a college in Buni Yadi, northeastern Nigeria, during which several buildings were torched. The attackers escaped the scene, but Nigeria's military suspects that the militant group Boko Haram, which has wreaked havoc in the region for several years, are the perpetrators. The Nigerian government is struggling to control the bloodshed between the mainly Muslim north and Christian south that has claimed more than 3,000 lives since Boko Haram came to promin ...

A common misconception is that Zulu is a nation, but the nation was actually Bantu. Bantu peoples is used as a general label for the 300–600 ethnic groups in Africa who speak Bantu languages.[1] They today inhabit a geographical area stretching east and southward from Central Africa across the African Great Lakes region down to Southern Africa.[1] Bantu is itself a major branch of the Niger-Congo language family spoken by most populations in Sub-Saharan Africa. There are about 650 Bantu languages by the criterion of mutual intelligibility,[2] though the distinction between language and dialect is often unclear, and Ethnologue counts 535 languages.[3] Between 2500–3000 years ago, speakers of the original proto-Bantu language group began a millennia-long series of migrations eastward from their original homeland in West Africa at the border of eastern Nigeria and Cameroon.[4] This Bantu expansion first introduced Bantu peoples to central, southern and southeastern Africa, regions where they had previous ...

After careful deliberations we make the following statement:- General Concern We have observed that the co-existence of pastoralists and farmers has always been problematic when not properly handled.

The Father Of Modern Liberia PROFILE OF A PRESIDENT— TUBMAN OF LIBERIA DAVID WILLIAMS Editor of ' West Africa' WHEN he was a young man—President Tubman told me during the celebrations of his last Inauguration in 1956—a military expedition went from Monrovia to Liberia's interior almost every year; and, as a militia officer 40 years ago, he had taken part in several. Now he was convinced that the enmity between" tribes " and " settlers " had ended, and he regarded his cordial relations with Paramount Chiefs and the hinterland people as the main achievement of his twelve years in office. lie wanted the tribal people, the country's great majority, to feel that the Presidency itself was open to them, and he did not pretend that the reforms which had allowed them a greater say in the government (until 1945 they had no representation in the legislature, in the lower house of which they now have a third of the seats) were ahead of their aspirations. Political activity among the people of the interior—if ...

Ghana was inhabited in the Middle Ages and the age of discovery by a number of ancient predominantly Akan kingdoms, including the Ashanti Empire, the Akwamu, the Bonoman, the Denkyira, and the Mankessim Kingdom. There is archaeological evidence showing that humans have lived in present-day Ghana since the Bronze Age.[23] However, until the 11th century, the majority of modern Ghana's territorial area was largely unoccupied and uninhabited by humans.[24] Although the area of present-day Ghana in West Africa has experienced many population movements, the Akans were firmly settled by the 10th century.[25] By the early 11th century, the Akans were firmly established in the Akan state called Bonoman, for which the Brong-Ahafo region is named.[25][26] From the 13th century, Akans emerged from what is believed to have been the Bonoman area, to create several Akan states of Ghana, mainly based on gold trading. These states included Bonoman (Brong-Ahafo region), Ashanti (Ashanti region), Denkyira (Central region), ...

Review by Steve Huey [-] After the success of Song for My Father and its hit title cut, Horace Silver was moved to pay further tribute to his dad, not to mention connect with some of his roots. Silver's father was born in the island nation of Cape Verde (near West Africa) before emigrating to the United States, and that's the inspiration behind The Cape Verdean Blues. Not all of the tracks are directly influenced by the music of Cape Verde (though some do incorporate Silver's taste for light exoticism); however, there's a spirit of adventure that pervades the entire album, a sense of exploration that wouldn't have been quite the same with Silver's quintet of old. On average, the tracks are longer than usual, and the lineup -- featuring tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson (a holdover from the Song for My Father sessions) and trumpeter Woody Shaw -- is one of the most modernist-leaning Silver ever recorded with. They push Silver into more advanced territory than he was normally accustomed to working, with mild ...

The star of Sirius (the "dog star") There is evidence that cannabis is not native to the earth. It is the only plant in existence that displays its gender physically. You also have the fact that cannabis just appears out of nowhere in the fossil record and history about 12000 years ago. there are no evolutionary predecessors to be found. also, cannabis dna structure is unique from any other plant. the closest genetic relative that can be found on the planet is...the strawberry! Also, Take a look at the word cannabis. Ever wonder what it means? Cannabis is a Greek word, though its root is African. In Greek, canna means 'canine' or 'dog' and bis or bi is the number two. So cannabis is the 'two dog plant'! That in itself is interesting to me. But the pot thickens. There is a cannabis-loving tribe in Mali, West Africa called the Dogon tribe. A fairly well-documented group, the Dogons were visited by Herodotus, a Greek traveler and chronicler, around 300 BC. He was fortunate enough to have visited the Dogons d ...

On the way to a single currency for ECOWAS Countries ? The ECOWAS countries are on the way to establishing a single currency by 2020. Nigeria is poised to play a major role in this process. While the plan apparently has unanimous support, “the devil is in the details.” Grain de sel : What is your analysis of the currencies now in use in West Africa ? Gilles Dufrénot : The “currency map” of West Africa comprises several different exchange regimes. There is a monetary union, made up of the eight countries of the franc zone, whose currency is tied to the euro ; and a set of non-convertible national currencies whose exchange rates in relation to the dollar or the euro are fixed administratively to a greater or lesser degree. The fact that different exchange regimes coexist in a small area does not favour trade between countries due to the high transaction costs involved (for example, fees for currency conversion and the insurance costs incurred by importers and exporters to cover exchange risks).

Why Kenya? I decided to volunteer in Kenya because I had planned a trip to West Africa this January and I wanted to see first-hand how the people live, what Kenyan culture and tradition feels like and which attitude towards life they have, rather than being told by guide books or tour operators. Having done a lot of research in the Internet, I had finally found a Kenyan organisation, which sounded promising. Instead of going through a lot of forms and questionnaires, which European-based organisation like to demand from you, I was chatting via email with the project’s coordinator right away, who answered patiently all my paranoid European-influenced questions, not to mention that I paid much less for my stay in the end. Once I had been assured that I would not die of malaria or other diseases, if I took the right measures before my arrival and during my stay, I was told I could volunteer in Wagusu, near Kisumu, right at the banks of Lake Victoria, for two weeks in a day care center for orphaned children ...

Sub-Saharan Africa has the world’s fastest growing population and also the youngest. This is a huge opportunity for West Africa as young people bring energy, vivacity, and innovation into the work force and can consequently have a transformative impact on economic growth and social development. The agricultural sector plays a key role in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and represents up to 35% of the region’s Gross Domestic Product. It is currently the employer of most of West Africans with 60% of the active population engaged in this sector. GO GREEN! THERE IS MONEY IN GREEN BUSINESS!
Friday, February 28, 2014 Blessed Daniel Brottier (1876-1936) Listen to Saint of the Day Daniel spent most of his life in the trenches—one way or another. Born in France in 1876, Daniel was ordained in 1899 and began a teaching career. That didn’t satisfy him long. He wanted to use his zeal for the gospel far beyond the classroom. He joined the missionary Congregation of the Holy Spirit, which sent him to Senegal, West Africa. After eight years there, his health was suffering. He was forced to return to France, where he helped raise funds for the construction of a new cathedral in Senegal. At the outbreak of World War I Daniel became a volunteer chaplain and spent four years at the front. He did not shrink from his duties. Indeed, he risked his life time and again in ministering to the suffering and dying. It was miraculous that he did not suffer a single wound during his 52 months in the heart of battle. After the war he was invited to help establish a project for orphaned and abandoned children in a ...

Babcock University was named after an American missionary by the name of David C. Babcock, who pioneered the work of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Nigeria in 1914. He was based in Erunmu in Oyo State, Nigeria. The university was established as the Adventist College of West Africa (ACWA) in 1959, initially with 7 students. In 1975, it changed its name to Adventist Seminary of West Africa (ASWA). The university was officially inaugurated on April 20, 1999. Babcock is long gone, what will you be remembered for ?

Isn't it worrisome that Nigerian Army that has been integral to the maintenance of peace in West Africa can't deal with Boko Haram?
According to a press release put out today by the office of U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, the joint law enforcement investigation found that numerous people had worked to illegally export, or attempt to export, stolen cars through the seaports in Newark and Elizabeth, to various countries overseas, including to Nigeria, Ghana, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Gambia, all in West Africa. Citing the criminal complaints, Fishman noted that “the overseas market for stolen and carjacked vehicles is growing,” and he said that “to fill this growing demand, the defendants have joined a criminal organization that involves the theft, carjacking, sale, receipt, transportation, interstate trafficking and illegal exportation of stolen and altered motor vehicles and motor vehicle parts.” He also said that the organization — which officials at the press conference noted had various factions and was not finite in its numbers or participants — was extensive and generally operated in multiple layers. The layers, Fishman ...
FG NEGATES THE PRINCIPLE OF NON-INTERFERENCE AS Boko Haram INSURGENCE INCREASES IN NORTHEAST.. FG seeks help from France. Nigeria has appealed to France and Abuja’s Francophone neighbours, especially Cameroon, to help it in the battle against insurgents, two days before a planned visit from French President Francois Hollande. On the day suspected Boko Haram Islamists slaughtered 29 students in their hostel, Information Minister, Labaran Maku, warned that the attacks could harm French and other Western interests in West Africa if left unchecked. “I think what we need is international cooperation from the French, from the French-speaking West African countries to work together to deal with this problem before it becomes a major problem for France, for Western interests operating in West Africa. “It will devastate French interests if we allow this terror to go on,” the minister told AIT television. The comments came ahead of a planned visit by Hollande today and tomorrow to attend an international co ...

Journey to Timbuktu (2009) Part Ten After returning to the Imam’s house, we were seated in the room we had previously occupied. However, now the room was illuminated with the light beaming from the faces of religious scholars, both young and old. The senior scholars were all adorned with the blue gowns that are the hallmark of scholars throughout West Africa and the Western Sahara region. They also were handsomely adorned with stately turbans, all meticulously wrapped in a common fashion. The younger scholars were all wearing Arab style thawbs of various colors. None were dressed in the traditional blue, nor were they wearing turbans. As we began our session of discussion and questions and answers, it was clear that the older scholars, as demonstrated by the Imam of Timbuktu earlier, were more comfortable speaking French than Arabic, with the exception of two or three who did not know French. As for the younger scholars, all of them had studied in Arab countries, —Egypt, Morocco, Libya, Tunis, or Sa . ...

John Hawkins made three trips to West Africa in 1560s, and stole Africans whom he sold to the Spaniards in America. On returning to England after the first trip, his profit was so handsome that Queen Elizabeth I became interested in directly participating in his next venture and she provided for that purpose a ship named 'The Jesus'. Hawkins left with the Jesus to steal more Africans, and he returned to England with such dividends that Queen Elizabeth made him a knight. Hawkins chose as his coat of arms the representation of an African in chains. Sadly Africans still buy to mind colonisation tricks like Hawkin ship's name. So colonisers with their impostors/missionaries managed to convince us of who we are, our purpose as slaves, our next life ( if there is any). The big question is, 'who were they to tell us who we are'? - Walter Rodney
Pax Nigeriana Kunle Somorin — February 27, 2014 When the Roman Empire dominated the world, an enamoured Edward Gibbon called the global hegemony’s streak Pax Romana. The long period between 27 BC and 180 AD saw relative peace and minimal expansion by military force superintended by the Romans. Pax Britania, modelled after Pax Romana, followed between 1815 and 1914, because Britain’s “imperial century” reined supreme, lording it over 10,000,000 square miles (26,000,000 km2) of territory and roughly 400 million people. Ali Mazrui saw a replication of that when he refers to “Nigeria’s exceptionalism included a potential leadership role to keep the peace in West Africa (as) a kind of Pax Nigeriana.” It is ironic that the country’s global and Africa peace efforts have however largely gone under-reported and squarely unacknowledged. It is the reason why many did not snort that, again, it’s a victim of our centennial celebrations, whereas its undercurrents such as the termination or eradicati ...

In 1963 when Togolese president Sylvanus Olympio was deposed from power and cut down through the bullet of General Gnassingbe Eyadema, who would participate 4years later in another coup d'état that would bring him to power for 38years until his death—ushered in a post-colonial psychiatric disillusion on the politics of power after 100years of slavery and colonialism put together in West Africa. The frequent change of government from that period upward accounted for much of the political instability in independent states under the whims of military juntas. Corruption, ethnic conflicts, inflation and huge debts became a noose around the necks of these regimes of oppression. It was only a matter of time for the sub-region to be engulf by civil war and counter-coups. These institutions of power were enlarged through the fearsome personality of these military leaders renowned for their administrative system of banditry with the likes of Ugandan despot Idi Amin; Sekou Toure, chief plunderer of Guinea for thr ...
Black History FactPhillis Wheatley "Phillis Wheatley was the first black poet in America to publish a book. She was born around 1753 in West Africa and brought to New England in 1761, where John Wheatley of Boston purchased her as a gift for his wife. Although they brought her into the household as a slave, the Wheatleys took a great interest in Phillis's education. Many biographers have pointed to her precocity; Wheatley learned to read and write English by the age of nine, and she became familiar with Latin, Greek, the Bible, and selected classics at an early age. She began writing poetry at thirteen, modeling her work on the English poets of the time, particularly John Milton, Thomas Gray, and Alexander Pope. Her poem "On the Death of the Rev. Mr. George Whitefield" was published as a broadside in cities such as Boston, New York, and Philadelphia and garnered Wheatley national acclaim. This poem was also printed in London. Over the next few years, she would print a number of broadsides elegizing promin ...
Guyana! Mash today!! Mashramani (Mash for short) is Guyana's patriotic holiday that commemorates the day that it became a republic in 1970. There are parades, music, games, and cooking—the most colorful festival of the year—with floats, masquerade bands, and dancing in the streets, elaborate costumes, calypso competitions, and the crowning of a Mash king or queen. ( Interesting to know ) read on.. The anniversary of the Cuffy slave rebellion, 23 February, has been Republic Day in Guyana since 1970. Cuffy is commemorated in the 1763 Monument in the Square of the Revolution in the capital Georgetown. Cuffy, or Kofi (died in 1763), was an Akan person who was captured in his native West Africa and sold into slavery to work in the plantations of the Dutch colony of Berbice in present-day Guyana. He became famous because in 1763 he led a revolt of more than 2,500 slaves against the colony regime. Today, he is a national hero in Guyana.

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was born on October 29, 1938, in Monrovia, Liberia. A graduate of the College of West Africa at Monrovia, she went on to receive her bachelor's degree in accounting from the Madison Business College in Madison, Wisconsin, a degree in economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master of Public Administration degree from Harvard University. After returning to Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf served as assistant minister of Finance in President William Tolbert's administration. In 1980, Tolbert was overthrown and killed by army sergeant Samuel Doe, who represented the Krahn ethnic group. Johnson Sirleaf went into exile in Nairobi, Kenya, as well as in the United States, where she worked as an executive in the international banking community. In 1985, Johnson Sirleaf returned to Liberia and ran for a seat in the Senate, but when she spoke out against Doe's military regime, she was sentenced to 10 years in prison. She served a partial sentence before moving to Washington, D. ...

LITERARY DISCOURSE As a lover and a person who is dedicated to literature and with an undying passion for the same, with the permission of the administration, I wish to run a literature article on this news platform. Literature is part of our day to day activities. Just like godliness, literature is intertwined with our day to day happenings. Because as a passionate literature personality, I have gained profound knowledge of how to go about issues thanks to literature. I have read quite a number of books especially from the African writers and you must agree to the fact that literature is just another religion. So join me, C Amkich Karanja every Saturday as we traverse Africa from Nigeria the land of Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda to West Africa, North Africa, Central Africa and back to Kenya. Make it happen. Be my audience. Blessed Saturday.
I am going to teach you something that you did not know about yourself, something that has been hinted at, and guessed at, and poked at, and everything but made fully known to you, as it should have always been. I am going to teach you the true and divine "knowledge" of yourself, historically speaking. today they have you calling yourself everything but what you are, and so, you are never able to take your proper place in the national and international affairs of men all over the world. you have been mentally robbed of your inalienable, inherent and invincible manhood, by being robbed of your nationhood. this robbery did not begin with Slavery (the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade), it began 800 years earlier. in 711 AD, the "Moors" (also called "Berbers" at tht point), who are the original people of West Africa deciding to expand their Moorish Empire went from Africa into Europe, from Morocco into Spain, and conquered most of Spain except for the very North. for 800 (700 AD - 1400 AD) the Moors ruled over Spai ...

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness among African-Americans and others, that they are in fact, descendants of the so-called lost tribes of Israel. This truth is confirmed by historical evidence and biblical prophecy, and is also now being unquestionably verified by social anthropologists and modern science by DNA testing. The prophecies of the bible accurately describes the series of migrations of the Hebrew Israelites throughout the continent of Africa, especially to West Africa, where the infamous trans-Atlantic slave trade took place. Many of the tribes of West Africa, such as the Ashanti, Fulani, Yoruba , etc., have oral histories stating that they are descendants of the nation of Israel, and their cultural practices are exactly the same as described in the bible. Therefore, many of the Africans captured and transported to America and throughout the western hemisphere were Hebrew Israelites. History and prophecy validates the claim of many African-Americans that they are actual descend ...
 The Yoruba people (Yoruba: Àwọ̀n ọ́mọ́ Yorùbá) are an ethnic group of southwestern Nigeria and southern Benin in West Africa. The Yoruba constitute over 35 million people in total, the majority of this population is from Nigeria and make up 21% of its population, making them one of the largest ethnic groups in Africa. The majority of the Yoruba speak the Yoruba language which is a tonal Niger-Congo language. The Yoruba share borders with the Borgu in Benin; the Nupe and Ebira in central Nigeria; and the Edo, the Ẹsan, and the Afemai in mid-western Nigeria. The Igala and other related groups are found in the northeast, and the Egun, Fon, and others in the southeast Benin. The Itsekiri who live in the north-west Niger Delta are related to the Yoruba but maintain a distinct cultural identity. Significant Yoruba population in West Africa can be found in Togo, Sierra Leone (where they have blended in with the Saro and Sierra Leone Creole people), and Ghana. The Yoruba diaspora consists of two m ...

History Origins Blending African and European music sensibilities By 1808 the Atlantic slave trade had brought almost half a million Sub-Saharan Africans to the United States. The slaves largely came from West Africa and the greater Congo River basin. They brought strong musical traditions with them.The rhythms had a counter-metric structure, and reflected African speech patterns. African music was largely functional, for work or ritual. The African traditions made use of a single-line melody and call-and-response pattern, but without the European concept of harmony. Slave gatherings Dance in Congo Square in the late 1700s, artist's conception by E. W. Kemble from a century later. In the late 18th-century painting The Old Plantation, African-Americans dance to banjo and percussion. Lavish festivals featuring African-based dances to drums were organized on Sundays at Place Congo, or Congo Square, in New Orleans until 1843. There are historical accounts of other music and dance gatherings elsewhere in the s ...

Andrew Kenny wants the freedom to call us: "Bantu..." and he has a twisted logic to support his call. Afterall, " Bantus" came from West Africa and the only aboriginal black africans are the " Bushmen and the Khoi" - i am at a loss for words. Why don't we use the term "Bantu"? Andrew Kenny 19 February 2014 Andrew Kenny on the problem with "African" as a racial classification Compulsory racial classification is as central to the ANC's thinking as it was to apartheid. Under the ANC, racial classification is faced with two problems, one very difficult to solve, the other very easy. The first is a definition of race. The second is the vague term "African", when there is clear and accurate term that could replace it. The Employment Equity Act, the centrepiece of ANC's race laws, defines "Black" as "African", "Coloured" or "Indian" but it does not define these terms at all. The intention of the Act is to strive for "demographic representivity": whites make up 9% of the South African population, and so employers ...
By Ibrahim Mshelizza MAIDUGURI (Reuters) - Gunmen from Nigeria's Boko Haram Islamist group attacked the northeastern town of Bama on Wednesday, opening fire on a school, shooting or burning to death 47 people and trashing the palace of a traditional ruler, officials and witnesses said. The death toll was confirmed by Lawal Tanko, the police commissioner for Borno state, which lies at the epicentre of an Islamist insurgency that has killed thousands in the past four and half years. Many more were wounded, he said. He added that the assailants had also partly burned down the palace of the traditional ruler of Borno, whose kingdom was one of West Africa's oldest medieval Islamic caliphates. "Boko Haram came in at about 4.00 a.m. (0300 GMT), just when we were getting ready for the morning prayers," said Bama resident Abba Masta, who lives near the palace. "There was shooting everywhere and they set the palace on fire. Many died. Students had to run for their lives as they attacked the government girls college ...

Did you know that Morocco pulled out of the African Union (AU) organisation in 1984 to protest the AU's admission of the self-proclaimed Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic ? Since then, there have been increasing calls for Morocco to return to the AU. This week Moroccan monarch, King Mohammed VI, is touring Mali, Guinea Conakry, Cote d'Ivoire and Gabon as part of a diplomatic swing through sub-Saharan and West Africa amid speculation it could lead to the return of Morocco to the AU. Some months ago the king took the initiative to cancel the debt of very poor African countries.
Africa's population has rapidly increased over the last 40 years, and consequently, it is relatively young. In some African states, half or more of the population is under 25 years of age.[6] The total number of people in Africa grew from 221 million in 1950 to 1.1 billion in 2013.

HOW DID CALIFORNIA GET NAMED AFTER A BLACK WOMAN The history of the state of California is intricately connected to the history of the Mali Empire? Say what, how can that be? At first glance they appear to be totally unrelated. However, on the examination of the history it has been revealed that they have a lot more in common than one would expect. We were taught in school that the year 1492 was the year that Columbus sailed the ocean blue. What we were not told is that it was also the year the king of Aragon was able to complete the expulsion of the Muslim caliphs from Al Andalusia (Spain), as well. Mind you these Muslims were primarily from the African nations along the Northern Mediterranean, as well as West Africa proper. They came from the countries now known as Morocco, Mali, Mauritania, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Sudan, Egypt and even Ethiopia. Therefore, from all historical evidence we know for sure that a large majority of them were of the African racial type. The occupation of Spain lasted for 700 ...

I can't even begin to say how excited I am about the amazingly talented women of Giwayen Mata being a part of Akwaaba Dance and Drum Festival 2014. GIWAYEN MATA is the award-winning, dynamic, soul-stirring, all-sistah, dance, percussion, and vocal ensemble that celebrates the richness of traditional Afrika by exhibiting its exemplary art forms. Giwayen Mata literally translate as “Elephant Women”. This became the selected name and it is interpreted as “Elephant Leaders of Women” because the founders chose to be trailblazers, playing the jembe drum – an unprecedented first on the stages of Atlanta. Giwayen Mata's Artistic Director is Omelika Kuumba. Omelika Kuumba is a native of Brooklyn, NY and a graduate of Spelman College.

African American History Month. The Amistad Mutiny A Portuguese slaver purchased Africans in West Africa. Transported to the Caribbean, the captives found themselves in the hands of Cuban slave dealers on board the Spanish schooner Amistad. In transport from Cuba the Africans, led by Cinqué , rebelled, killed the captain and three crewmen, and ordered the rest to sail to Africa. By day the crew complied, but at night they sailed west and finally landed near Long Island, New York, where the vessel was seized by U.S. authorities. In the New York Sun, where the portrait below appeared in 1839, Cinqué is described as a "brave Congolese chief . . . who now lies in jail in arms at New Haven, Conn., awaiting his trial for daring for freedom." Cinqué is quoted as saying, "Brothers, we have done that which we proposed . . . I am resolved it is better to die than be a white man's slave." President Martin Van Buren and the Spanish administrators of Cuba wanted the Africans returned to stand trial for mutiny, but ...
Definition of *** 1910-1911 Excerpts Compiled By Baffour Amankwatia II [Asa G. Hilliard III] *** (from Lat, niger, black), in anthropology, the designation of the distinctly dark-skinned, as opposed to the fair, yellow, brown variations of mankind. In its widest sense it embraces the dark races, whose original home is the intertropical and sub-tropical regions of the eastern hemisphere, stretching roughly from Senegambia, West Africa, to the Fijian Islands in the Pacific, between the extreme parallels of the Philippines and Tasmania. It is most convenient, however, to refer to the dark-skinned inhabitants of this zone by the collective term of Negroids, and to reserve the world *** for the tribes which are considered to exhibit in the highest degree the characteristics taken as typical of the variety. . . . "The colour of the skin, which is also distinguished by a velvety surface and a characteristic odour, is due not to the presence of any special pigment, but to the greater abundance of the col ...

Transfer pricing and gold mining in Senegal British satirical magazine Private Eye, which often carries excellent financial scoops in its back pages, has a story in the latest edition (No.1620, 16 April 2010) about how Australian mining company Mineral Deposits Ltd, which extracts gold from the Sabodala region in Senegal, West Africa, and ilmenite and zircon from quarries on the Grand Cote north of Dakar, declares no profits in that country. Instead, according to Private Eye, profits are diverted to Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean, which - alas for it - has no gold, but happily for Mineral Deposits has a tax rate on corporate profits of zero percent [though according to Mauritian deputy prime minister, rumours that the island is a tax haven are a "myth" - and the OECD agrees. Needless to say, TJN isn't taken in by such denials]. We won't take you through the various steps in this process since the Eye has kindly explained these in full here. But here are a few highlights: "Senegalese gold mining company Sa ...
West Africa to Form Regional Gas Company A regional gas company is being formed in West Africa and Ghana will lead the establishment of it. The company is being formed to help deal with issues associated with the supply of natural gas, LPG, and regasification units in the sub region. Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, and Equatorial Guinea are the other members countries. The announcement of the regional gas company’s formation was made when the ministers of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire, Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah and Adama Toungara respectively, pledged their commitments to the project in Accra. They both added that there was strong collaboration from Gabriel Obiang, the minister of energy from Equatorial Guinea and from Nigeria’s NNPC. Buah said the decision to establish such a strategic gas company to supplement energy needs of member countries was reached at the 16th Gulf of Guinea Oil & Gas Conference (GOG16) held in Abidjan last year, noting that it was critical for these countries to work together to find a ...

“I am someone who doesn’t switch off my phone,” said Aliko Dangote. “My phone is on 24 hours.” Aliko Dangote Dangote is the richest man in Africa, worth $11.2 billion according to Forbes magazine, and is the founder and CEO of the Dangote Group, the largest industrial conglomerate in West Africa with interests in cement, food products, oil, fertiliser, banking and transportation, to name a few. Based in Lagos, Nigeria, the company has operations in 13 other African countries and is the only Nigerian company on the Forbes Global 2000 Companies list. During a recent lecture at the Lagos Business School, Dangote shared his experiences and advice with both budding and established entrepreneurs. So what does a working day look like for Dangote? “My day is not really very structured because of several issues,” he said. “The demand of my time is really extremely high, especially in Nigeria you have a lot of ceremonies, and unnecessary ones.” Dangote receives numerous invites to weddings, confer ...
Meanwhile, there is no single state in Nigeria that does not have resources with which to live as a wealthy state. The gold that is being openly stolen from Zamfara State by thieves that converge on the state every day of the year from all over the world is enough to make Zamfara one of the richest administrative units in the world, far richer than any oil-producing state. By the way, the oil-producing countries are not the richest nations of the world. The very resourceful Dangote Group makes a profit of more than N5billion every month from Obajana in Kogi State, yet the state government lazily waits every month to collect N2billion from the federation account. The gas that is irresponsibly flared daily in the Niger Delta is enough to produce electricity for the whole of Africa. Niger State, which is approximately the size of the entire south-west, with rivers, streams and lakes traversing the state can feed the entire West Africa, not to talk of the other resources which include gold, gas and other oil ...

Martin Scorsese's...The Blues (PBS & Sony DVD, 2003) The Blues is the umbrella title under which exists seven distinct films, by seven independent film-makers. Originally Martin Scorsese had planned to make a film outlining the history of this music, which he calls "one of America's most unique and important art forms." That plan changed as the depth and intricacies of the music were uncovered. The work was shared among seven different directors, each of whom chose one aspect of the blues to celebrate. The first film, (and they must be considered individually) was broadcast one Sunday night in October. Feel Like Going Home is the title of Scorsese's contribution. It is essentially a voyage of discovery by modern blues artist Corey Harris into the history of his genre. Harris is introduced playing his contemporary blues on stage. His music pays tribute to those who have come before him. He then sets off to visit players from previous generations, and eventually travels to Mali, in West Africa to meet the f ...
Giraffa camelopardalis peralta The West African Giraffe. In 2005 I first visited one of the poorest countries in the world, Niger, in West Africa. there was a famine and thousands were dying from lack of food and water. The experience I had changed my life forever. I met with some of the most influential people in government and activists who were desperate to save the last 60 known Peralta Giraffes in the whole of the West African region. they used to exist all over from the Sahara down to the Atlantic coast. Then restricted to a small pocket about 60 miles outside Niamey the capital of Niger. Since that visit in 50% partnership with Bioparc Doué-la-Fontaine we have financially and administratively supported the Association for the Safeguarding of the Giraffes of Niger, ASGN. the success of the project in turning around the extinction of such an iconic animal has been one of the best examples of Conservation in Action the world has seen in recent times. We went into the starving communities where Giraf ...

Accra (AFP) - Ghana needs to make "fundamental" changes to its economy if it is to protect its currency and allow its markets to continue growing steadily, President John Dramani Mahama said on Tuesday. West Africa's second-largest economy has attracted international interest in recent years because of its promising oil reserves, relative political stability and high growth rates. But a weakening currency and concerns that fluctuations in global prices of major export commodities such as gold and cocoa have raised fears of a slow down. The cedi exchange rate has dropped to a record low, as investors ran shy of emerging markets after the US Federal Reserve scaled back its stimulus programme. That prompted Ghana's central bank last week to imposed new controls on the movement of foreign currency, including restricting the size of withdrawals. Mahama told foreign journalists in Accra that the currency's struggles were a sign that it was time to restructure the way Ghana trades. "One of the visions of this go ...
THIRTY MILION PEOPLE ARE SLAVES TRENTA MILIONI DI PERSONE IN SCHIAVITU' By Timothy Large LONDON, Oct 17 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Some 30 million people are enslaved worldwide, trafficked into brothels, forced into manual labor, victims of debt bondage or even born into servitude, a global index on modern slavery showed on Thursday. Almost half are in India, where slavery ranges from bonded labor in quarries and kilns to commercial sex exploitation, although the scourge exists in all 162 countries surveyed by Walk Free, an Australian-based rights group. Its estimate of 29.8 million slaves worldwide is higher than other attempts to quantify modern slavery. The International Labour Organisation estimates that almost 21 million people are victims of forced labour. "Today some people are still being born into hereditary slavery, a staggering but harsh reality, particularly in parts of West Africa and South Asia," the report said. "Other victims are captured or kidnapped before being sold or kept for expl ...

BreakPoint.org Terrorist attacks, the threat of nuclear weapons, persecution of Christians, the abuse of women—these are just some of the recurring themes whenever the American news media get around to covering the Muslim world—which isn’t often. It’s enough to tempt you to think that the House of Islam is beyond redemption or hope. Well, I’m thrilled to tell you that God is doing miraculous things in the House of Islam. David Garrison, a missions expert with the Southern Baptists, has written an amazing new book called “A Wind in the House of Islam,” which describes an unprecedented movement of Muslims into the Christian faith over the last twenty years. I spoke with him about this good news in the latest edition of BreakPoint This Week, which you can listen to atBreakPoint.org. Upon hearing the increasing stories of conversions recently in the Islamic world, David went on a journey of 250,000 miles to speak with Muslims in West Africa, North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, the Persi ...

"Black History Month should be of interest to every Muslim, especially in America. It is estimated that upwards to 20% of the Africans enslaved in the Americas were Muslim. In some areas, such as the coast of the Carolinas, Georgia, and parts of Virginia, the percentages of Muslims in the slave population may have approached 40%. The fact that the search of a random African American, Alex Haley, for his roots led him to a Muslim village in West Africa is indicative of the widespread Muslim presence among the enslaved population here in the Americas." - Imam Zaid Shakir We hope to see you all this Thursday at the Beck Cultural Exchange Center.

Lions in West Africa could become extinct The African lion faces extinction across the entire West African region, according to a new report. Lions once ranged continuously from Senegal to Nigeria, but the new paper – co-authored by a University of Queensland researcher – reveals only about 250 adult lions survive in the region. Only one of the four isolated and severely imperiled populations contains more than 50 lions. After a six-year survey covering 11 countries where lions were presumed to exist in the past two decades, the paper The Lion in West Africa is Critically Endangered has been published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE. The research was led by Dr Philipp Henschel, the survey co-ordinator of international conservation group Panthera. A team from West Africa, Australia, the UK, Canada and the United States co-authored the paper. “When we set out in 2006 to survey all the lions of West Africa, the best reports suggested they survived in 21 protected areas,” Dr Henschel said. “We su ...
The ABCs of e-waste The world's discarded electronics are piling up in West Africa, creating some opportunity and much danger Ours is an age of obsolescence. Computers, cellphones and televisions seen as cutting-edge today will be, in a very short time, out of date and thrown away as trash. People generate about 40m tonnes of digital detritus every year and this figure is increasing 4% annually, according to a 2012 International Labour Organisation study. E-waste, comprising all electrical and electronic waste, from cellphones and laptops to air-conditioners and washing machines, is the fastest-growing rubbish stream in the world. Few regions are feeling its effects more than West Africa, according to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Liberia and Nigeria together generate nearly a million tonnes of domestic e-waste every year, according to UNEP. In addition, developed countries, especially in Europe, are exploiting lax West African customs regulations to disp ...
MARQUETTE UNIVERSITY DR. Chima Korieh The Race and Identity: The Case of the Igbo-Hebrew People in the Americas Famous African-Americans Celebrities Of Igbo-Hebrew Descent This paper explores the way the Igbo-Hebrew people of the Bight of Biafra hinterland, West Africa, viewed race and constructed their identity in the eighteenth and nineteenth century Americas and the Caribbean, following their enslavement. The Igbo-Hebrew people were brought to the United States and other parts of British Americas in large numbers through the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. The Europeans oppressed the Igbo people as a result of the social construct of race and Igbo identity was reconstructed in the Americas because of their ancestral customs. Specifically, this paper explores the issue of race and identity formation through a critical study of the lives of two Igbo ex-slaves—Olaudah Equiano, the author of The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Oladuah Equiano and Archibald John Monteath, whose life as a slave and missio ...
Mansa Musa, 14th C emperor of West Africa worth $400 billion - richest person of all time!
BLACK HISTORY : Mansa Musa FROM MALI, AFRICA DISCOVERED AMERICA IN 1324 MORE THAN 100 YEARS BEFORE CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS. THEY ALSO ENVADED SPAIN WHICH IS A REASON FOR THEIR DARK SKIN COLOR. Once he got to the Americas, Columbus records numerous examples of Muslims already present. He commented on the gold that the natives had, which was made the same way, in the same alloy, as the Muslims of West Africa did. Furthermore, Columbus records that the native word in that area for gold is guanin, which is very similar to the Mandinka word for gold, ghanin, which probably comes from the Arabic word for wealth, ghina’. In 1498, Columbus recorded seeing a ship loaded with goods, heading towards America, filled with Africans who were probably on their way to trade with Native Americans. Columbus also records in his journal that Native Americans told him of black Africans who came regularly to trade with them. Even Columbus knew that he was not the first to cross the Atlantic Ocean.

History of Ghana Medieval Ghana (4th - 13th Century) : The Republic of Ghana is named after the medieval Ghana Empire of West Africa. The actual name of the Empire was Wagadugu. Ghana was the title of the kings who ruled the kingdom. It was controlled by Sundiata in 1240 AD, and absorbed into the larger Mali Empire. (Mali Empire reached its peak of success under Mansa Musa around 1307.) Geographically, the old Ghana is 500 miles north of the present Ghana, and occupied the area between Rivers Senegal and Niger. Some inhabitants of present Ghana had ancestors linked with the medieval Ghana. This can be traced down to the Mande and Voltaic peoeple of Northern Ghana--Mamprussi, Dagomba and the Gonja. Anecdotal evidence connected the Akans to this great Empire. The evidence lies in names like Danso shared by the Akans of present Ghana and Mandikas of Senegal/Gambia who have strong links with the Empire. There is also the matrilineal connection. ...MORE
- In 1492 the kingdom of Songhay (Ghana, Mali, Chad, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, The Gambia, and Burkina Faso) was firmly established as the dominant power of West Africa. The West African Nation of Kingdom of Mali, also called Melle was organized in 1235. Mali’s political organization dates back to the beginning of the seventh century. Sundiata Keita is credited for consolidating and strengthening the kingdom. However, it was Mansa-Musa, a member of the Keita dynasty who ruled from 1312 to 1337 carried Mali to new heights by encouraging Malian industry. Malians were predominantly agricultural, a substantial number were experts in crafting and mining. Their resources came from the mines of Bure and served to increase the royal treasury. Mansa-Musa supervised the building of elaborate mosque at Timbuktu, Jenne and Gao. These structures added splendor to the already well-developed kingdom of Mali. By the time Mansa-Musa died in 1337, Mali was a powerful and well organized political state. The first known ...

On this day in Black History: In 1820, the first organized immigration of freed slaves to Africa from the United States departs New York harbor on a journey to Freetown, Sierra Leone, in West Africa. The immigration was largely the work of the American Colonization Society, a U.S. organization founded in 1816 by Robert Finley to return freed American slaves to Africa. In 1867, The Peabody Fund was established. The Peabody Fund provided monies for construction, endowments, scholarships, teacher and industrial education for newly freed slaves in the South.

25 Things U Probably Didn't Know About Belize: 1. It's the only English speaking country in Central America: Belize was occupied by the British, making it unique among its neighbors. 2. It was the center of the Mundo Maya: The Mayan once occupied Belize, as evidenced by the dozen or more protected archeological sites. Practically every buried mound you spot is a piece of history. 3. Most Belizeans are trilingual: They speak Kriol, Spanish and English. Some also speak additional languages, such as Garifuna, Mayan dialects, and German. 4. You can have a plate of coconut rice n' beans: Proof of Caribbean culture? Coconut rice and beans is sold on every corner, alongside a tasty stew of your choice. 5.

The question is no longer about where corruption exists but the fact that it is flourishing - globally. George Thomas Equatorial Guinea: Squandered riches: The tiny oil-rich African nation is plagued by rampant corruption, repression and poverty, making it perhaps the world’s best example of the resource curse. A tiny oil-rich nation in West Africa, this country is perhaps the world's best example of the resource curse; instead of creating prosperity, its oil underpins a dictatorship, fosters corruption and undermines economic development. Human Rights Watch describes the problem bluntly saying that "corruption, poverty and repression continue to plague" the nation. "Vast oil revenues fund lavish lifestyles for the small elite surrounding the President, Teodoro Obiang, who has ruled the nation for nearly 35 years with an iron fist, while most of the population live in poverty, their basic economic and social rights unmet."

VICE travels to West Africa to rummage through the messy remains of a country ravaged by 14 years of civil war. Despite the United Nation's eventual intervention, most of Liberia's young people continue to live in abject poverty, surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. The former child soldiers who were forced into war have been left to fend for themselves, the murderous warlords who once led them in cannibalistic rampages have taken up as so-called community leaders, and new militias are lying in wait for the opportunity to reclaim their country from a government they rightly mistrust.

These guises include multiple disasters that suddenly happen once they get involved with their victims. If the victim has no money, the Romance Scam Artist convinces the victim to cash fake financial instruments (checks, money orders, drafts, etc.) and wire (via Western Union or MoneyGram) them the money before the financial community can figure out the instruments are fake. Other times, the Romance Scam Artists use victims as "mules" to receive property they have bought with stolen credit card information, and reship the goods to them in West Africa and other locations. ...

Exodus 23:13 - And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth. Once you become enlightened to the truth, you can't continue to worship the Most High in ignorance by cleaving to that which is not Yah. John 4:24 - Yah is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth(law). Israel were a Hebrew speaking people, before they fled out of Jerusalem in 70CE running from Roman Persecution. They ran into Africa and arrived on the Ivory Coast of West Africa, such as Ghana and Nigeria and Sierra Leone. Having no desire to mingle with other nations Israel didn't go into the parts of Africa that Hamitic people lived such as Egypt, Libya, Ethiopia. according to scripture Israelites did not mix with gentiles and heathen nations. Israelites stayed in Africa for 1300 years until the Africans conspired with the Arabs and sold Israel to the Europeans such as Sir John Hawkins of The British empire.

Throughout our (Black) history, we have been defined by others and ourselves as African, *** Colored, Black, and African-American. Today, many folks battle over the reference use of the terms African-American or Black to define our existence. Some may say: Who really cares?  In reality, it matters a lot in today’s America. And most importantly, it should matter to you.   As we begin our celebrations of our symbolic month of Black History, it is important to *** the present State of our “Blackness” in America.   Given the recent Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild honors bestowed on the acclaimed movie, 12 Years A Slave, we also have the permissible opportunity to confront the origins of the pain, struggles, challenges, and triumphs of Black people in America.   The distracting debat ...
Senegal jails two men six months for being *** Two *** men were arrested after neighbors told police they were living together in Dakar, the capital of Senegal, in West Africa, according to the Associated Press. After the two men admitted to having sex with each other in court last Friday, Judge Racky Deme sentenced them to six months under Senegal’s criminal code, which could lead to sentences of up to five years and fines of up to $3,000 for committing “an improper or unnatural act with a person of the same sex,” the AP reports. Despite the sentencing, Senegalese President Macky Sall insists that *** people are only prosecuted if they break the law. Last June, President Barack Obama urged African leaders to treat the LGBT community equally during a press conference at the grand presidential palace in Dakar. “I want the African people just to hear what I believe, and that is that every country, every group of people, every religion have different customs, different traditions,” he said. “And ...
How We Got Into The Mess We Are In Today: The melanated ancient ones who existed before the earth split that had a global Empire (tribes, kingdoms and nations) fought amongst themselves, internally and also later against the Christian powers and whoever sided with them in "the recent age". Known to some as the Christian discovery era, inquisition, Christian colonization, Crusades, etc. In 1774 our nationality was taken away from us. Between the years of 1779 and 1865 our birthright was taken from us and we were enslaved. During the slave trade era majority of us was already in the Americas (North, Central, South, Caribbean Islands) a few of us were taken from West Africa. However in our eyes there was no difference between West Africa and Florida. On March 31, 1864 in the Senate there was a debate between Saulsbury of Delaware and Mr. Harlan on what they are going to do with the slave (pale slaves, mulatto slaves, native slaves, dark slaves) issue. The final result was that the Hebrew Code/Levitical Code ...

Land is sold in any size, from quarter plot to half acre, but no size bigger than that. 2. When giving directions in Nima, all landmarks must start from the big gutter or 441. 3. The Fantis thought they were home free. There are 3 categories of Fantis in Accra: 3a: Adabraka dwellers: Old Merchants with roots from Cape Coast and Saltpond 3b: Airport Residential dwellers who were alumni of either Mfantsipim, Adisadel or St Augustines in the 1940s and 50s, whose kids are mostly abroad save a few highly accomplished people in the area who mostly dont know their leases are up. The lands commission should be chasing them by now. 3c. The East Legon and Cantonments Dwellers, who walk their dogs and drink decaf every morning before going to work. Mostly upper-class citizens who speak Fanglish as a status symbol only. 4. The rest of the Fantis live in McCarthy Hill 5. If you want ...
