Policy Support Gap for “Climate-Smart” Agriculture

Conditioned that ploughing is the sure way to produce crops, Zimbabwean farmer Handrixious Zvomarima surprised himself by trying a different method. He planted cowpea seeds directly without tilling the land. It worked. The new method tripled Zvomarima’s cowpea yield when many farmers did not harvest a crop following the El Nino-induced drought which affected more […]

Ethiopia’s New Addiction – And What It Says About Media Freedom

On a Saturday afternoon in one of Addis Ababa’s khat houses, a group of men and women chew the mildly narcotic plant while gazing mesmerized toward a television featuring a South Korean soldier stripped to his waist and holding a young lady’s hand while proclaiming his undying love—somewhat incongruously—in Amharic. Broadcast exclusively in the lingua […]

South Sudan: a Nation Tormented by a Crisis

I come from Panyijar County, South Sudan, just south of where famine was declared in February this year and one of thousands of places badly hit by the conflict which enters its fifth year today. With each year the fighting continues, the hopes that I and my fellow South Sudanese had when voting for independence […]

Uganda's Leader to Sign Death Warrants Again After 19 Years
Uganda's president says he will sign the death warrants of “a few” prisoners to create fear among criminals in the East African country.   President Yoweri Museveni said Thursday he had not ordered executions in 19 years but was changing his mind because people were taking advantage of the “leniency.” He said: “I am going to revise this and hang a few.... if you see how they kill people, they deserve to be killed.”   He spoke at a graduation ceremony for prison wardens...

Chibok Girls Changed by Shame, Stockholm Syndrome
Connections formed by years of captivity and shame at marrying militants might explain why some Chibok girls have chosen not to return home from their Boko Haram ordeal, experts say. Their militant Islamist captors released a video on Monday showing some of the remaining girls — who were kidnapped from the northeast Nigerian town of Chibok — appearing to relish their new life and disavow their old. More than 200 girls were abducted in 2014 and 106 have been found or freed....

Kenyan President’s Office Warns Opposition Leader on Exile Government Threat
A spokesman for Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned opposition leader Raila Odinga not to carry out a plan to inaugurate himself as the “people’s president” or form a rival government in exile. Odinga, who disputes the October presidential election results, told VOA’s Swahili service this week he would conduct a so-called “inauguration ceremony” and form a government. Kenya’s presidential spokesman, Eric Kiraithe, on Thursday responded to opposition leader Raila Odinga’s threat to...

Somali General Shot Dead in Capital Mogadishu
A Somali general was shot in the head and killed in the capital Mogadishu on Thursday and a colonel who was his deputy has been arrested for the murder, senior army sources said. The killing of Marine general Saiid Aden Yusuf in what was apparently an internal dispute is a fresh sign of problems facing the army as it battles an insurgency by Islamist militant group al-Shabaab with the help of African Union peacekeepers. "Our marine general was killed by his deputy at Mogadishu...

5 Detained Over Fire Bombs Thrown at Tunisia Synagogues
A judge in Tunisia has ordered the detention of five people suspected of throwing Molotov cocktails at two synagogues during protests over price hikes.   A court spokesman told The Associated Press on Thursday that the judge in Medenine ordered the suspects held pending trial. The suspects all are between 19 and 22 years old.   The Medenine court spokesman says early evidence makes authorities think the incident on the island of Djerba wasn't terror-related.

South Africa Prosecutors Urged to Act in Apartheid-era Death
The family of a South African anti-apartheid activist who was tortured and killed by police in 1971 is pushing state prosecutors to act against three former police officers linked to the murder. Ahmed Timol's family said Thursday that it does not want vengeance and would back plea bargains by the men, who are in their 80s, as long as they tell the truth about a case that was ruled a suicide at the time. A judge last year overturned that ruling and found that Timol, a member of the...

HRW: Don’t Let Global Rights Decline Obscure Abuses in Africa
Africa doesn’t take top billing in this year’s roundup of global human rights concerns. That dubious honor goes to the “dangerous trend” of intolerance and populist leadership in the United States, Russia and China, which Human Rights Watch says are setting a poor example for the rest of the world. But, says the organization’s deputy program director, Babatunde Olugboji, that doesn’t mean the respected rights watchdog is taking their eye off Africa even as they air their concerns about...
