Looks like most of the leaders picked up Indian-styled clothes.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made sure the heads of more than 40 African nations gathered in New Delhi this week all had a regulation cotton-silk vest or kurta – just like the ones he sports – to put on.
South African president Jacob Zuma, also center stage in the photo-op, chose a knee-length jacket and trouser combination known as the Nehru-suit, after India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru.

King Mswati III of Swaziland though was among the leaders who donned the kurta — his was in royal-blue – for the photo with Mr. Modi. One of his wives wore a blue-and-gold sari.


Indian clothes should be promoted overseas as part of cultural outreach.

All but exceptions by one or two. A very good way to promote values, without being partial or exclusive. Swaziland's queen who accompanied the king wore a sari as the last line above states.

4 Things to Know About India’s Summit With African Leaders

In addition to the above 4 points I would add the increase of scholarships for African exchange students to 50K p.a. This could cultivate an entire generation. To this point: "Somalian President Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud, who did his Masters’ in Education from Bhopal, told Modi that he was the “shining example” of a beneficiary of education cooperation."

While our foreign policy rhetoric and public posture has been pro-Third World, in the essential interests and thrust of Indian foreign policy New Delhi has been anything but attentive. African states have been the worst sufferers from Nehru’s time, primarily because relations with black states segue into the traditional subcontinental varna prejudices — fair & lovely, dark & ugly, etc, manifested also in the routine discrimination faced by African students in Indian colleges and universities.


Indeed, so disinterested has the Foreign Office been in sub-Saharan Africa that not long ago when Mozambique and Tanzania offered India the richest iron ore vein in East Africa to mine on condition that it also build a 700 km railway line from site to the coast — which would have been needed anyway to carry the mined ore to Indian ships — the Indian ambassador who had worked these govts and secured the concession was told gruffly by the MEA Desk that “[Black] Africa is not on our radar”!

A particularly egregious example in the book of how Delhi turned down a security role on the East African littoral concerns Mozambique. Being satisfied with the perimeter security provided the African Union Summit by the Indian Navy, Maputo was keen that India help it found and equip its navy, including officering it at the highest echelon, and has permitted an Indian radar station to be set up on its northern coast as part of the surveillance grid IN oversees in the Southwestern Indian Ocean. The Indian Navy was jumping at this chance to gain enormous goodwill, have a demonstration effect elsewhere in the littoral, and to project power. But, yea, MEA negatived it!!!

Mali - World's most dangerous peacekeeping mission

good background primer on the conflict in Mali and what is driving the hotel hostage situation

The burning sand barrier between North Africa and the rest of this continent is a barrier no more.
Europe is just one country and one treacherous sea crossing away.
Drugs, migrants and the influence of violent Islamists has put Mali on the map, prompting first a French military intervention and then a United Nations peacekeeping operation, which has quickly become its most dangerous on record.

Gambia Declares Itself To Be Dar-ul- Islam ( Islamic State) :roll:
PRESIDENT Yahya Jammeh has declared the Gambia “an Islamic state”, but stressed that the rights of the Christian minority in the small west African country would be respected and that women would not be held to a dress code.
The announcement came as the president addressed supporters in the coastal town of Brufut, and the comments were later broadcast on state television and repeated on his website.
“Gambia’s destiny is in the hands of the Almighty Allah.(and the Land Of The Two Holy Cities ie S.A) As from today, Gambia is an Islamic state. We will be an Islamic state that will respect the rights of the citizens,” he was quoted as saying on the presidential website.

Its about 50 years since end of colonialism in Africa. Yes they had many civil wars and are settling down. One consequence will be the shift from tribal rural to urban life.

Western city models are capital intensive and un-affordable.

India should work on a model city plan comprising of essential/core buildings around which the new cities can be built gradually as they prosper. And some planned expansion facilities water works, power plants, sewage treatment.

CAAZ impounds US cargo plane . . . Bleeding body, millions of rands found on board
Tendai Mugabe Senior Reporter—
The Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe yesterday impounded a chartered MD11 trijet cargo plane owned by Western Global Airlines stashed with millions of South African rands and a dead body after it asked to land in Harare during a flight from Germany to South Africa.During routine refuelling airport staff noticed blood dripping from the plane, the dead body found, and the alert given. Investigations were still in progress last night.

Western Global Airlines is based in southwest Florida in the United States of America. The plane was flying from Germany to South Africa when the captain asked for a technical landing at the Harare International Airport after an initial request to land in Mozambique was turned down.


Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe general manager Mr David Chaota confirmed the incident last night. “Yes, it is a Western Global Airlines plane and now the case is being handled by our security ” he said.

South African Ambassador to Zimbabwe Mr Vusi Mavimbela confirmed the incident last night but would not give details. “I spent the better of the day at the airport,” he said. “I am aware of what you are saying but I cannot comment now because there are investigations that are still going on.”
Sources close to the matter told The Herald last night that the plane was destined for South Africa. “The plane requested for a technical landing which was granted by the airport authorities,” said the source.

“Upon refueling, the airport attendants discovered that there was blood dripping from the plane. When they checked to try and ascertain where the blood was coming from that is when they discovered a suspended dead body in the plane.

“The matter was reported to the authorities at the airport and the plane was impounded while the body was taken to pathologists.” Unconfirmed reports say the crew included two Americans, a Pakistani and a South African. The whereabouts of the crew were unknown last night.

The nationality of the dead person could not be established by the time of going to print, nor any details of how he died. Western Global Airlines operates a fleet of 16 MD11 freighters, a modern stretched upgrade of the old DC10, according to its web site.

The private cargo line is owned by James and Sunny Neff and advertises that it has a good range of customers, including FedEx. It said aid agencies chartered it to fly staff and supplies into West Africa last year to fight the Ebola epidemic.

The last time Zimbabwean civil aviation authorities impounded a foreign plane was in 2004, when the authorities arrested a planeload of 64 mercenaries who wanted to take part in a coup in Equatorial Guinea. Efforts to get a comment from the police were fruitless as police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba’s mobile phone went unanswered.

Jhujar wrote:Confirmed: Construction Begins on China's First Overseas Military Base in Djibouti

. . . Reports regarding China’s interest in a coastal base in Djibouti emerged for the first time early last summer, when Djibouti’s president, Ismail Omar Guelleh, confirmed that Djibouti and China had entered talks on the possibility of a naval base in the port city of Obock, along the northern coast of the Gulf of Tadjoura. . . .

Let us be clear here. China is setting up *TWO* bases in Djibouti, one at Obock, at the entrance to the Gulf of Tadjoura but in the north and another at Doraleh, at the south edge of the Gulf.

In May 2015, the President of Djibouti announced high level talks between China and Djibouti on the construction of the naval base in the northern part of Obock. Early this year, reports said that the Chinese facility would be established at Doraleh Multi-Purpose Port —a $590 million project that is being steered by China Merchants Holdings International in the south of the country. The Chinese Navy would use one of the berths there.

We need not split our hairs on whether it is just a facility or a base. In early December 2015, China and Djibouti signed a 10-year lease agreement for the base that will hold 700 troops at any time for an annual rent of USD 100 million. So, it is very clearly a 'naval base'.

South Sudan which is newly independent from Sudan and has oil is in civil war for last four years. The President and VP are on opposite sides. Meantime Sudan charges $25/barrel for transporting the oil from South Sudan. With price of oil around $35/barrel they make less than the extraction costs.

I heard on radio last night that piracy of Western Africa is now the new in thing. The big idea is to hijack oil tankers and steal the oil and ransom the crew and tankers.
This is different than the Horn of Africa piracy which was all the news due to Somali involvement.

Any BRF members in Africa who can comment?

Ramana, I work in Lagos, Nigeria (West Africa) for oil and gas company. While crude oil theft (more referred as bunkering) is very common in Nigeria (80% GDP is due to oil and gas industry) and nearby countries but hijacking entire oil tanker is not something which I have much heard of. Kidnapping for ransom in Nigeria is one of the highest personal risks faced by most of oil and gas workers (locals and expatriates) since amidst poverty, natives find easy way of earning lots of money.

So, kidnapping, ransoming, crude oil theft in small boats is what I know.

Ramana, thanks for asking. I should be able to do a monthly summary of news from Nigeria. I will aim an update every end of month, so the first update will come on 30April.

Currently, Nigeria (worlds 6-9th largest oil exporter) eyes are focused on 17 April, hosted by Qataris in Doha, where OPEC (led by Saudi Arabia) and non-OPEC (led by Russia) nations are willing to come to table to discuss production freeze (and not production cut). I need to find an appropriate oil and gas global thread where I can keep sharing things related to oil and gas developments (I hope there is one).

Albinos Are Being Killed In Record Numbers For Their Body Parts
Superstitions about albinism are rife, especially in Malawi and neighboring Tanzania and Mozambique.
Over the past year and a half, a disturbing and violent trend has been growing in Malawi, a country often known by its nickname: "The Warm Heart of Africa." At least 18 people with albinism, a congenital condition resulting in a lack of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes, have been murdered, and many others have been raped or harassed. Four of the murders happened in April alone, and five more albinos have been abducted and are still missing.

A new report from Amnesty International accuses Malawian police of failing to protect the albino population, and the Malawian government of failing to educate its citizens about albinism's natural causes.

Is Hair Regrowth Without Side Effects Possible?
Hair for Sure

Albinism is more common in sub-Saharan Africa than elsewhere in the world. Superstitions about the condition are rife, especially in Malawi and neighboring Tanzania and Mozambique. Some believe that having sex with an albino woman can cure HIV, which puts albino women at particular risk for rape. Others believe that the bones of albino people contain gold, or have medicinal or even magical properties. That demand, stemming from a ritual medicine revival in Malawi, is fueling the spate of murders by gangs that, allegedly, can make as much as $75,000 selling a "full set" of albino body parts, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Separately from Amnesty, the United Nations recorded at least 65 cases of violence against albinos, including but not limited to killings and dismemberment, since the end of 2014.

Ikponwosa Ero, an independent expert who works with the United Nations on issues around albinism, told Al Jazeera that she thinks albinos in parts of southern Africa face extinction. "I said that this will happen over time if nothing is done," she said. "The situation is a potent mix of poverty, witchcraft beliefs and market forces which push people to do things for profit."

In a vacuum of public knowledge about the causes of albinism, many albinos are shunned by their families, and parents are often baffled by giving birth to albino children. The abductions and killings, some of which have been particularly gruesome, have instilled a culture of fear in the albino population. While Amnesty says that the police have done little to combat the rise of so-called "albino hunters," the police say they are doing everything they can. Last year, Malawi's inspector general of police authorized his officers to shoot any suspected "albino hunter" on sight

Mindful of China, India seeks to expand trade with Ghana - B.Muralidhar Reddy, The Hindu
With China at the back of its mind, India intends to expand its bilateral trade with Ghana from $3 billion to $5 billion in the next three years.

This was agreed upon during the three-day maiden visit of President Pranab Mukherjee to the west African country.

Ghana was the first stop of Mr. Mukherjee’s three-nation Africa tour. Though India has a strong presence for decades with a sizeable diaspora and business community engaged in trade for decades in Africa, it is way behind China in investments in key infrastructure sectors.

After the hosting of the 3rd India Africa Forum Summit (IAFS) in New Delhi in October 2015, India is working symmetrically on a plan to consolidate and further strengthen its engagement with Africa. India’s cumulative investments in Ghana hover around $1 billion, whereas bilateral trade is worth $3 billion in 2015-16.

At the delegation-level talks, both sides conceded that though bilateral trade and investments have been steadily growing, these were still below potential. They acknowledged the need to take up mutually beneficial projects such as a joint fertilizer plant, with an emphasis on greater value-addition.

A joint statement issued at the end of Mr. Mukherjee’s visit said the Government of Ghana conveyed its deep appreciation of India’s concessional developmental assistance by way of grants and Lines of Credit, in particular, its support for major socio-economic projects such as Komenda Sugar Plant and Elmina Fish Processing Plant. India has also approved a Line of Credit for setting up a Foreign Policy Training Institute.

Chair on Indian studies

It was agreed that India would establish a Chair on Indian Studies in the University of Ghana, Accra.

In the course of his visit, the President paid floral tributes to Ghana’s first President Kwame Nkrumah at his Mausoleum in Accra, and unveiled the statue of Mahatma Gandhi, in the University of Ghana.

From Ghana, Mr. Mukherjee leaves for Ivory Coast.

No different with most Indians. Folks, mostly blue-collar workers, arrive with a 3-months TWP, & stay over for 1+ year, executing Infra/EPC projects. If there is an urgent requirement, even Hydra operators come over on a 3 month Business Visa :rotfl: as it is faster to get. A flight on Kenya/Ethiopian airways is a virtual BIMARU congregation.
Once every year, or so, when someone from the imigration dept. pays a visit, with prior intimation, all workers are asked to stay put in their colonies, returning only after the official goes back after being hosted to a sumptuous meal & palm greasing.
The Dangote group, every country they operate in, has all politicians in his pocket, eating out of his hands. Anybody working in any of his projects is virtually untouchable by the authorities there. The group's management is virtually all-Indian.
For all of Buhari's promise to rid Nigeria of corruption, only the amount needed to grease palms have increased, nothing else. During Jonathan's regime it would cost 20,000 Nairas to get an overstaying person through Airport checks, now 35,000.
