FRONTLINE

ZIMBABWE

The Africa Report takes you on a road trip across Zimbabwe – from Harare to

Masvingo Province and Mashonaland East – to see the long-term impact of the

country’s early-2000s land revolution.

 

POLITICS

SOUTH AFRICA

As municipal elections hit the country on 3 August, Nelson Mandela Bay is a litmus test for the ANC. If Mayor Jordaan has shored up some of the party’s popularity locally, deep fault lines of poverty and discontent make this a knife-edge contest with national repercussions.

 

ETHIOPIA

The state-driven economic model leaves no room for dissenting voices as Ethiopia sticks to its 11.2%

growth target, with manufacturing leading the way.

 

NIGERIA

It takes a general to deal with a $7bn per year military machine that has spun out of control. That was the thinking that piled up more than 15 million votes for President Muhammadu Buhari in last year’s dramatic election. Buhari was seen as the man to straighten out the military, defeat the jihadist insurgency in the north-east and jail a generation of corrupt officers, politicians and businesspeople. However, he is now losing support, as he struggles with security and graft.

 

COUNTRY FOCUS

MAURITIUS

India and Mauritius have ended a fiscal agreement responsible for billions of dollars of investment

passing through Mauritius each year. With the threat that other countries may want to do the same, the

government is looking for new ways to promote growth outside the offshore financial sector.

 

BUSINESS

AFRICA-ASIA

The two fastest-growing continents need each other for a multitude of reasons – business, geopolitics,

demography.  Japan is the latest Asian country to move onto the front foot in this relationship, but it is not alone.

KENYA

The infrastructure company’s new chief executive will need to act quickly to right the ship and source funds, to avoid a default on bond payments later this year.

 

FINANCE

The government’s high levels of debt are unsustainable and it is turning to costly borrowing in order to bridge deficits ahead of high-stakes elections in November.

 

DOSSIER

TRANSPORT

Trade corridors have the potential to boost Africa’s economic development dramatically. But in order to

take off, they need massive investment and delicate political manoeuvring.
