FRONTLINE

WHO RUNS NIGERIA

President Buhari was elected in 2015 on a promise to change how the country runs. The Africa Report takes a look at the dealmakers and kingpins who could support or scupper the new government’s agenda.  So who actually runs Nigeria? In a simplistic sense, the answer is whoever controls the patronage machine. There is also the fight for control of patron-client networks.

 

 

POLITICS

SOUTH AFRICA

First, it was the country that split over President Zuma. Now it is his own party.  After a March Constitutional Court decision that said Zuma violated the constitution, dozens of ANC luminaries called for his resignation, and many trade union leaders are backing them. However, despite the fresh scandal tainting the divisive president, his position appears secure.

INTERVIEW

KENYA’S PRESIDENT UHURU KENYATTA

In the crimes against humanity cases over political violence in 2007-08, the ICC withdrew charges against President Kenyatta in 2015. On the 5th April this year, the International Criminal Court announced that they were dropping their case against William Ruto, Kenyatta’s deputy, and Joshua arap Sang, a radio journalist.

 

POLITICS

ZANZIBAR

Tensions in Zanzibar are simmering after the 20 March presidential elections. Tanzania’s governing Chama Cha Mapinduzi won a rerun of presidential elections, granting another term to the incumbent Ali Mohamed Shein, who has been in power since 2010. Zanzibar’s main opposition party, the Civic United Front, boycotted the vote.

MONEY SUPPLEMENT ON FINANCE AND INVESTMENT

From the global migrations of bulge-bracket investors to the modest contributions of microfinance,

this special supplement will follow finance as it strengthens Africa’s economies.

 

COUNTRY FOCUS

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO

As the DRC’s economy begins to struggle, the country’s political debate is focused on elections that

must take place by November and the constitution’s presidential term limits. It seems impossible to meet that deadline, but President Kabila is not letting on about how he will play the crisis.

 

BUSINESS

REGIONAL INTEGRATION

Africa does not trade enough with itself, despite the real possibilities for greater growth and security. However, things now seem to be changing. African countries can boost growth by cutting tariffs

and removing “soft” barriers to trade, while still supporting their industries without completely

protecting them.

BUSINESS

FOOTBALL

About 300 million Africans are estimated to regularly watch Premier League matches – more

viewers than any other region except Asia, according to Repucom, a sport research outfit. These huge fan bases on the continent are causing English Premier League clubs to ramp up sponsorship deals with African brands.

DOSSIER

INSURANCE

This dossier considers the recent boom in car ownership in Morocco and the opportunities that come with it for local insurance companies. We include an interview with BIMA’s regional manager for Africa, Paddy Partridge, on how mobile money will be the way to buy insurance and carry an analysis piece that looks at the ‘Green fields’ of insurance growth.

ART & LIFE

LITERATURE

Moroccan author Tahar Ben Jelloun’s new book on infidelity, sexual intimacy and racism

in Northern Africa, ‘Le Mariage de plaisir’, breaks the silence of taboos, from infidelity and sexual intimacy to the inherent racism in the country of his birth.
