Africa Day 2017 Focuses on Investing in Youth
For more than half a century, Africa's identity and unity have been celebrated around the world on May 25, in honor of the 1963 founding of the Organization of African Unity, now known as the African Union (AU). "Celebrating Africa Day, to me, is recognizing not only what Africa has contributed to the rest of the world, willingly and/or unwillingly through slave trades, wars and colonization, but also through trade, cultural and civilizational exchanges; also to see how much...

South Sudan Frees UN Journalist After Two-year Detention

How One Zambian Traffic Incident Led to a Treason Charge
One traffic spat in western Zambia has grown into an international incident with life-or-death implications — one that could taint Zambia's history of peaceful and democratic rule. For more than six weeks now, opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has been in jail, awaiting trial on treason charges, which carry a possible death penalty. He was arrested in April, after his convoy crossed paths with the motorcade of President Edgar Lungu on a country road, and Hichilema's drivers...

Experts: Africa 'Hemorrhaging' Billions in Illicit Financial Flows
Africa loses an estimated $50 billion a year to illicit financial flows, leaving governments strapped for cash and dependent on development aid.
