          Botswana – Mike Chase opposes arguments for lifting hunting ban      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
This is not sur5prising, as he has long campaigned against hunting.  His figures don’t explain why there are huge fluctuations in elephant survey results – with the 2012 dry season survey showing 207,000 elephants, and then the next one showed just over 140,000. He conveniently ignores the 2012 census, as it doesn’t support his argument. […]
          Global wars and insanity fast becoming entertainment      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By Mahboob A Khawaja, PhD.Global politics is fraught with man-made catastrophic tragedies. The human beings are supposed to be the most intelligent social animal on the planet. Yet, our proactive plans and actions continue to dehumanize the fellow human beings and engineer conflicts and wars that destroy the existence of mankind. The driving impulse is war economies, individualistic interest and militarization. We come to realize that politics is a game of pretension and always remains problematic. Politicians need problems to get public attention and to argue being the deliverers. Often, they are not except being treacherous, cynical and deceitful to their ideas and ideals and to the public interests they claim to serve.Amongst all the creations on Planet Earth, humans are the only one to claim morality as an attribute of life and value. This reality emphasizes and differentiates us from the other creations of God. If we propel uncertainty in our thoughts and behavior, nothing can stop us from surpassing the limit of immorality and insanity. With knowledge-based 21st century human communications improving global collaboration, we are not moving in the right direction that human logic and truth spell out for our conduct in peaceful relationships. The impulse and actions for cruelty and sadistic behavior are increasingly sending alarming trends for the present and future generations to be informed of our implicit wickedness and resulting failure in global affairs. As humans, we are not thinking or moving for the unity of mankind to be at peace and harmony being the chief creation of God. Unless, we are overwhelmed philosophically to imagine that we are something else than humans populating the Earth by chance. Global Institutions are a Menace to Human Change and Progress The global warlords are waging wars in the name of peace and harmony. Humanity is being crushed and its compound interest undermined by the few for economic greed and militarization. The UNO originated from the belief and commitment to avert futuristic wars by men of new ideas pursuing peaceful means, diplomacy and accountability to the global mankind. How sad and cynical it looks to view the succeeding generations entrapped again into the same mindset of warmongering and power politics as were the sadistic leaders before the Two WW. Like the past, once again few egoistic nations and leaders have manipulated the time and opportunities to dictate and undermine the interests of the mankind.  The global humanity is the net object of their planned cruelty but without any meaningful role to challenge the few global warlords.  America, Russia and few Europeans find freehand to go anywhere and bomb the humanity at will. This is what exactly happening in the broader Arab Middle East war theatre managed by global warlords. The UNO and its Secretary General need to free themselves from captivity and enlarge their role and initiatives for conflict management and peace-making outside the New York established box. Words and Charter's core thoughts are repeated but actions are missing. The UN Security Council could finally visit the Rohinga refugee camps but failed to demand equal treatment from the Myanmar Government. Strange, why the same UN Security Council cannot travel to defuse tensions and bring much needed humanitarian peace between Palestine and Israel. Could it shrink its inherent responsibility for the mismanagement of the Middle East conflict?   Humanity in Search of Proactive Leaders The 21st century global politics have not produced any new leaders of vision and moral integrity to imagine the universal phenomenon of peaceful change and futuristic developments. There are no global organizations managed by people of moral and intellectual vision and courage to serve the interests of the global community. Man is a moral and intellectual being articulating happiness and progress horizontally in peace-time, but when fear of the unknown, hatred and animosity attempt to govern the human consciousness, degeneration replaces human progress. America and some Europeans used to be the leaders of change and new strategies to envisage global friendship, co-existence and harmony of the mankind.  If political greed and egoistic interest are the supreme force, how could they serve the interest and priorities of the global mankind for peace and harmony? At best, many world leaders could best be defined as "hangmen" of the 21st century. It is a frightening trend for the present and future generations to imagine our time and role in human history. The Middle East - the Ancient Hub of Humanity - the Land of Abrahim, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad is being ScorchedThe continuing wars in the Middle East are fabricated and gone out of proportion challenging the human conscience and civilized values that once highlighted the human behavior in conflicts. Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Palestine and Libya are destroyed by political design. Do you remember the paradoxes of history? Do you recall what Sultan Salahudeen Ayoubi did to free Jerusalem and drive out the Crusaders from the ancient lands?  Do you remember how Sultan Salahudeen treated his enemies - King Richard and others even in the battlefield? Do you know that for ages the European feared Salahudeen - the Conqueror of Jerusalem? The contemporary Arab world is devoid of moral and intellectual leadership of any kind. They operate on a dead-ended scale without any role in global affairs. Jerusalem was not US property to be transferred top Israel; it belongs equally to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Under the UNO Plan, Jerusalem is an international city to be shared by all the believers. Yet, the puppet Arab leaders showed no moral courage to question President Trump for moving the Embassy to Jerusalem. One wonders why the Saudi King signed 250 billion worth of military contracts and gave 100 million to Ivanka Kushner when Trump visited the region last August.  It could well be witnessed by the raging sectarian wars in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere. There is no coming of Salahudeen to rescue the entrenched Palestinians. After 70 years of Nakba, they still have No thinking plan, no leadership, no movement for change and freedom except reactionary emotional outbursts. When Jews lived with the Arabs in Spain (Al-Andulsia) for centuries, they were part of the Arab culture and advancements for the best of humanity. European mistreated Jews but Muslims gave them the best for their protection and participation in Islamic civilization. Look, what is happening now between Palestine and Israel. Gideon Levy ("60 Killed In Gaza And The End Of Israeli Conscience", Haaretz and Information Clearing house: 5/21/2018), spells out the present reality for Israelis to think critically:On the night of the Palestinians' slaughter, Zion exulted an embassy and a Eurovision. It's difficult to think of a more atrocious moral eclipse....The truth is that Israel is well prepared to massacre hundreds and thousands, and to expel tens of thousands. Nothing will stop it. This is the end of conscience, the show of morality is over. The last few days' events have proved it decisively. The tracks have been laid, the infrastructure for the horror has been cast. Dozens of years of brainwashing, demonization and dehumanization have borne fruit. The alliance between the politicians and the media to suppress reality and deny it has succeeded. Israel is set to commit horrors. Nobody will stand in its way any longer. Not from within or from without....If 60 stray dogs were shot to death in one day by IDF soldiers, the whole country would raise an outcry. The dog slaughterers would be put on trial, the nation of Israel would have devoted prayers to the victims, a Yizkor service would be said for the dogs slaughtered by Israel....The Israeli brain has been washed irrevocably, the heart sealed for good. The life of a Palestinian is no longer deemed to be worth anything.Towards Thinking of Future-MakingWe live in one Planet Earth. What happens across the globe or in the remote jungles of Botswana and or in the rugged mountains of Afghanistan or the bloody streets of Kabul, Damascus and Baghdad, it is vital to global interests and cannot be ignored because European or American television networks do not portray it. According to the Divine revelations, the Earth keeps record of all the human activities. The Earth is a living entity, not dead.  There were many powerful and unchallenging empires and nations in history. What happened to their self-perpetuated glory and triumphs except being part of the archeological record? To all concerned, their artifacts and deadly remains do tell the real story. Most were destroyed by natural causes but the Earth remains in-tact, not by the legislative power of any States of the UN membership but certainly by the Will of God. It operates and maintains balanced life for all regardless of ethnicity, color, creed, religions and nationalism. Should we not care how we live, utilize and draw lifelong gains from the Earth?  We the humans urgently need rethinking to reflect on our plans and behaviors how do we relate to Earth? It is an indivisible comprehensive relationship. The answer should help us to balance our life. When could this historic change come into being? If we realize to be One Humanity living on One Planet Earth, its imagination could affect and balance our thoughts and behavior. We must respect equal human rights and dignity of all on Earth. Do the Super Powers (powerful nations) have a sense of indifference and biased toward the colored and economically less advanced nations?  In its 2014 Global Thinkers statistics, Foreign Policy ("A World Disrupted: The global Thinkers of 2014") pinpoints that "something big requires a team rather than an individual...." To enhance global peace and to undo the continuing bogus war on terrorism, there is an urgent need for teamwork by all concerned across the globe. The teamwork if undertaken with unbiased mind and  without pre-conceived notions could usher sustainable change and a new beginning between those who claim to be at peace and somewhat superior than the ordinary folks and those who are fighting reactionary wars of freedom against insanity and catastrophic devastation of the human habitats. Under 'Advocates', the Foreign Policy notes:"The global thinkers herald causes often wrongly considered inconsequential or verboten. They support forgotten victims of sexual violence, protect civilian targeted in internecine violence, count casualties in the fog of war, and demand legal protection for world's most vulnerable migrants. Often these men and women, scholars, activists and religious leader among them- do this work on their own peril and pay the price landing in court or in prison in some of the world's most repressive countries. For all of them, however, the risk is worth the possible rewards."

          Stars To Perform At Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 In Johannesburg      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Jay-Z: Profile

International advocacy organisation Global Citizen today announced that Beyonce, JAY-Z, Cassper Nyovest, D’banj, Ed Sheeran, Eddie Vedder, Femi Kuti, Pharrell Williams and Chris Martin, Sho Madjozi, Tiwa Savage, Usher, and Wizkid will headline the first Global Citizen Festival to be held in Africa, a free-ticketed event on Sunday, 2 December 2018 at the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg.

The December event is the culmination of Global Citizen’s “Mandela 100” campaign in partnership with the House of Mandela; a series of global events honouring the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela in his centenary year.

Oprah Winfrey will deliver a special keynote address remembering Nelson Mandela and his legacy.

Executive producers of the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 include Dr. Precious Moloi Motsepe, Patrice Motsepe, Kweku Mandela, Dave Holmes, Declan Kelly, Liza Henshaw and Hugh Evans.

Hosts of the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 include Naomi Campbell, Sir Bob Geldof, Gayle King, Bonang Matheba, Tyler Perry, and Forest Whitaker.

The Festival broadcast will be produced by Ben Winston and Fulwell 73 Productions.

Nelson Mandela famously called for this generation to realise an end to extreme poverty in one of his last public speeches, and Global Citizen has campaigned on this message with activist-driven events in Vancouver, London, Brussels, and at the upcoming 2018 Global Citizen Festival to be held in New York’s Central Park on 29 September.

Activists and music fans can begin to earn their free tickets starting on August 21st and can sign up today at www.globalcitizen.org.za, demanding world leaders make major investments to end extreme poverty and take a stand for women and girls. The “Mandela 100” campaign seeks to mobilize USD $1 billion in new commitments for the world’s most marginalised people, with USD $500 million set to impact the lives of 20 million women and girls worldwide. These investments will be aimed at ending hunger and increasing access to good nutrition, ending neglected tropical diseases, reducing HIV transmission rates, ensuring every child receives a quality education, reforming and repealing sexist laws, providing funding for women’s health and family planning, and ensuring access to clean water and safe sanitation world wide.

“Nelson Mandela was one of the greatest examples of resistance, patience, and forgiveness that our world will ever know. It is our great honour to campaign in his name and answer his call to be the generation to end extreme poverty,” said Hugh Evans, Global Citizen, Co-Founder and CEO.

“Nelson Mandela believed in people’s potential for goodness, and inner potential to change things for the better, for each other and for ourselves he believed that poverty and injustice were man made problems, that we could solve together. One hundred years on from his birthday, this year’s roving Global Citizen Festival will be held in his honour – in Johannesburg on December 2nd. It has been such a pleasure to put together, and all of the artists have been amazing to work with, perhaps because this is a chance for us to show that we all believe in the same things he did: love, acceptance and forgiveness,” said Chris Martin, Global Citizen Festival curator.

“I am pleased to lend my support to the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, in celebration of Madiba’s rich legacy of social justice, compassion and activism. Each one of us must take inspiration from his fight for equality by being the generation to end extreme poverty. We must ensure that no child or adolescent die from preventable causes, including hunger and malnutrition. I call on world leaders, civil society organizations, business leaders and change agents everywhere to join Global Citizen and take action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals,” said Graça Machel, Founder and Chairperson, The Graça Machel Trust.

“The future of the world lies in the hands of young people. Over half the world is under the age of 25. We must inspire and support them to be the generation to end extreme poverty. Nelson Mandela believed that poverty is man-made and must be overcome by human action. That’s why I’m delighted to support the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, to call on young people and world leaders to take action for a brighter future for everyone,” said Ban Ki-moon, former United Nations Secretary-General.

Ed Sheeran said, “I’m really looking forward to playing the Global Citizen Festival and paying tribute to Nelson Mandela who has inspired so many to fight for what they believe in. It should be a great day!”

Eddie Vedder said, “It is such an honor to be given the chance to head to South Africa to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s incomparable legacy. He showed an entire generation what it means to be a leader and make a difference for the world’s poor. I’m so grateful that this event will serve as a reminder of his great work and inspire us all to carry on in his name.”

“Nelson Mandela’s life story is a testament to the power of the human spirit and one man’s ability to change the world by standing up for what he believed in,” said Oprah Winfrey. “It is one of the great honours of my life to have spent so much time with him, and I look forward to celebrating his courageous life.”

Naomi Campbell said, “I’m truly honoured to celebrate the legacy of Nelson Mandela by co-hosting the 2018 Global Citizen Festival in South Africa. Madiba was a man whose values and wisdom have left a lasting imprint on this world. I cherish everything he taught me about giving, sharing, and forgiving, and I look forward to celebrating his life on December 2nd.”

Sir Bob Geldof said, “I share my friend Nelson Mandela’s belief that poverty is a manmade condition. And its greatest curse. Global Citizen is carrying on a legacy set in place by one of the kindest, most generous, and most courageous and wisest of leaders that our world has ever seen and I am proud to be a part of Mandela 100. It is time we fulfill his call to eliminate extreme poverty with all its attendant evils.”

A number of world leaders will address the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, including South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, Amina J. Mohammed, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway and President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, who both serve as co-chairs of the UN Secretary General’s Advocacy Group for the Sustainable Development Goals, President Mokgweetsi Masisi of Botswana, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization, Alexander De Croo, Deputy Prime Minister of Belgium, Gilbert F. Houngbo, President of the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development, David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Programme, Ambassador Ertharin Cousin, Board Director of The Power of Nutrition, and Peter Sands, Executive Director of the The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Starting today, music fans and activists can sign up at www.globalcitizen.org.za to be among the first to be notified of the action journey launch. Actions include emailing world leaders, signing petitions, and using social media to generate commitments in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The Festival will be the culmination of a six-months long campaign engaging Global Citizens around the world on seven Global Goals:
POVERTY: (Global Goal 1): End all forms of poverty everywhere
ZERO HUNGER (Global Goal 2): End all forms of hunger and malnutrition
HEALTH (Global Goal 3): Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages
EDUCATION (Global Goal 4): Ensure every child has access to a quality education
GIRLS & WOMEN (Global Goal 5): End all forms of discrimination against women and girls everywhere to ensure that #SheIsEqual
WATER & SANITATION (Global Goal 6): Ensure everyone has access to clean water and sanitation
LIFE BELOW WATER (Global Goal 14): addressing the threat plastic pollution poses to the oceans

Global Citizen is proud to join forces with the most forward thinking and innovative organizations committed to the mission and movement of ending extreme poverty.

The Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 will be presented by Major Partner The Motsepe Foundation, with major partners, Johnson & Johnson, Cisco, Nedbank, Vodacom, Big Concerts, House of Mandela, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Goalkeepers, Eldridge Industries, and Associate Partner, HP.

Since the first Global Citizen Festival in New York in 2012, Global Citizen has grown into one of the largest, most visible platforms for young people around the world calling on world leaders to honour their responsibilities in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and ending extreme poverty by 2030. The organization has taken its action-based model to Australia, India, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, and Canada, and created a platform for activists to learn about the issues they care most about, take action, and earn rewards for doing so.

Global Citizens have generated commitments and policy announcements from leaders valued at over $37.9 billion that are set to affect the lives of more than 2.25 billion people. This year alone Global Citizens have secured 29 commitments totaling over $2.9 billion that are set to affect the lives of more than 501 million people by 2030.

          Primera entrega de las amenazas de Villarejo: Corinna acusa al rey Juan Carlos de usarla como testaferro      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Cuando el comisario José Manuel Villarejo fue detenido el pasado el pasado 3 de noviembre, políticos y periodistas empezaron a temer que el veterano policía, acostumbrado a grabar sus conversaciones, comenzase a sacar trapos sucios. Este miércoles, diez meses después de la detención, ha trascendido una de esas grabaciones en la que la princesa Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein explica que el rey emérito la utilizó como testaferro para esconder su patrimonio.

La conversación la ha publicado El Español y en ella Corinna da detalles al excomisario sobre cómo el rey Juan Carlos se valió de su condición de residente en Mónaco, donde no es necesario hacer una declaración pública del patrimonio. La supuesta amante del rey relata que este ha puesto parte de ese patrimonio a su nombre sin que ella supiera nada y habla directamente de prácticas de blanqueo.

"Ponen la propiedad dentro de la estructura, hacen como un contrato de venta y entonces parece todo perfecto. Claro, no pueden decir que el beneficiario es el otro (en referencia al rey emérito). Entonces, sin decírmelo, me lo ponen y después dicen: "Esta no quiere devolverle la cosa". Pero si lo hago, es 'money laundering'. Es blanqueo", afirma en la grabación.

El sistema que describe lo habría llevado a cabo el rey emérito junto al abogado Dante Canonica, según la versión de Corinna. "Me está poniendo una presión bárbara para que le devuelva esas cosas, pero si lo hago vulnero la ley… y puedo ir a la cárcel", añade.

Entre esas propiedades a su nombre Corinna cita varios terrenos en Marruecos. En otro pasaje, Corinna afirma que el rey Juan Carlos tiene varias cuentas en Suiza que ha puesto nombre de su primo, Álvaro de Orleans y Borbón. Según su versión, el abogado Canonica ha tratado de que Corinna transfiera las propiedades a su nombre a Álvaro de Orleans, pero ella se ha negado.

La grabación forma parte del archivo personal de Villarejo que ha ido alimentando con grabaciones de sus encuentros para utilizar luego esos archivos contra sus enemigos. No es la primera vez que llega a los medios una conversación privada del excomisario: una de ellas acabó con la carrera política de Ignacio González y puso al policía bajo el foco mediático.

En junio de 2017 fue el propio Villarejo el que decidió dar el paso y conceder una entrevista a Salvados, que realizó con una gorra y unas gafas. Durante aquella conversación disparó contra todos sus enemigos, especialmente contra el director del CNI Félix Sanz Roldán. No aportó ninguna prueba.

Durante aquella entrevista ya salió el nombre de Corinna. El comisario jubilado aseguró que la mujer le contó cómo el director del CNI le amenazó con no poder garantizar la seguridad de ella y su familia si no accedía a lo que le pedía después del accidente del rey en Botswana. 

"Estaba aterrada porque no es lo mismo que la amenace de muerte cualquiera que lo haga el generalísimo [como ha llamado varias veces en la entrevista a Sanz Roldán]. Llamó a su majestad, rey emérito, por favor este hombre…", ha dijo Villarejo en la entrevista. Según la versión de la princesa y el excomisario, el CNI trató de hacerse con unos documentos sensibles que el rey había entregado a Corinna.

Villarejo continúa en prisión a pesar de sus reiterados intentos por salir. Entre las prácticas que se le atribuyen a la supuesta red integrada por Villarejo y y el también comisario Carlos Salamanca está la de facilitar la entrada de personas de nacionalidad guineana en España y la posterior regularización de su situación a través de las empresas de Villarejo.

Según la Fiscalía Anticorrupción, ambos se valían de las funciones propias de sus respectivos cargos policiales, "especialmente sensibles para la seguridad nacional", para recibir "elevadas sumas de dinero y regalos suntuarios diversos".

Todo ello a cambio de sus servicios especializados "de inteligencia" y de "facilitar la entrada ilegal de ciudadanos no comunitarios en territorio español". En esta causa, denominada Tándem, también figuran como investigados, entre otros, la mujer de Villarejo, Gema Isabel Alcalá, un hijo de ambos y otro de Salamanca.

SADC Develops Regional Strategy on Women, Peace and Security
10 JUL, 2018 - 00:07
Nyarai Kampilipili Correspondent

Southern Africa has developed a regional framework that will serve as a guide on mainstreaming gender into the regional peace and security systems and processes.

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Secretariat a recent meeting of senior officials responsible for gender and women affairs in the region that the strategy will be launched at the SADC Summit of Heads of State and Government scheduled for August 17-18 in Windhoek, Namibia.

The SADC Regional Strategy on Women, Peace and Security (2018-2022) aims to address challenges experienced by women and children by ensuring that they fully participate in peace and security activities, programmes and projects in the region.

The strategy was first presented to senior officials at their meeting in Ezulwini, the Kingdom of Eswatini, in 2017 and was further presented to the Ministerial Council of the Organ for approval.

The development of the strategy involved various stakeholders who included gender and security experts from all the SADC member states.

The strategy and its accompanying action plan are to be implemented from 2018-2022 and member states have been urged to develop national action plans and mobilise resources to implement proposed activities at national level.

Southern Africa is making significant progress towards promoting gender equality and equity in the region. However, there is need to maintain the momentum and push forward the regional gender agenda, particularly in issues to do with peace and security.

This requires intensification of regional efforts to mainstream gender into peacebuilding and conflict resolution processes if sustainable peace is to be achieved.

Although progress is being made in the development of strategies that mainstream gender in peace and security matters, the number of women and children being affected by conflict remains high.

High-ranking women in the security sector in SADC member states remains low.

For example, only three SADC member states have had women ministers of defence in the period 2009-2018. These are Botswana, Madagascar and South Africa.

South Africa remains the only country in SADC with a woman Minister of Defence who has held the position since 2012.

According to a 2015 UN Women report, women constitute fewer than 10 percent of peace negotiators globally, and only three percent of signatories to peace agreements.

In this regard, there is need to include more women in peace processes so that their issues are mainstreamed into the negotiations.

Other key issues being discussed by the SADC senior officials responsible for gender and women affairs during the annual meeting include the need to expedite processes towards combating trafficking in persons; accelerating efforts towards achieving 50:50 representation in politics and decision-making and the need for member states that have not signed the Agreement Amending the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development to do so.

To date only Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Mozambique, eSwatini, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe have signed the agreement amending the protocol while Namibia and South Africa have indicated that they will sign during the SADC Summit in Namibia.

The senior officials responsible for gender and women affairs meet prior to the annual meeting of SADC ministers responsible for gender and women affairs.

The ministers meeting will discuss the SADC regional gender programme and share progress towards the implementation of gender commitments made by the countries.

A total of 11 SADC member states – Angola, Botswana, DRC, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Tanzania, South Africa, Seychelles, Zambia and Zimbabwe – are attended the meeting, which ran from July 3-5 in Johannesburg.

ED to Kick Start Border Post Modernization
Thupeyo Muleya
Beitbridge Bureau
Zimbabwe Herald

President Mnangagwa will tomorrow visit Beitbridge Border Post for a groundbreaking ceremony to begin works on the mordernisation of the country’s and sadc’s busiest inland port as part of Government’s initiative to facilitate ease of doing business.

The President recently said Cabinet had approved the upgrading of the border post.

In addition, President Mnangagwa said he had since met with the directors of the company that won the tender to upgrade the border post.

Presidential spokesperson Mr George Charamba confirmed the visit last night.

“The President will be visiting Beitbridge on Wednesday (tomorrow) for a ground-breaking ceremony for the upgrading and expansion of the border post,” he said.

By the end of day yesterday, senior Government officials from Matabeleland South province were still locked in meetings and attending to logistical issues ahead of the President’s visit.

Chairperson of the Beitbridge State functions committee, Mrs Kiliboni Ndou-Mbedzi, who is also the District Administrator said the stage was now set for the ground breaking ceremony.

“We have covered enough ground in terms of logistics and as we speak people are busy on the ground preparing the venue,” she said.

Addressing a rally at Phelandaba Stadium, in Gwanda recently, President Mnangagwa said that the New Administration’s re-engagement initiative has seen Zimbabwe joining Zambia and Botswana in the construction of Kazungula Bridge.

“I have already met with the directors of the company that won the tender to mordernise and upgrade Beitbridge border post and they gave me assurance that all was on track.

“We are hopeful that the project will be taking off soon. In addition, we are also working on implementing the one-stop border post with Zambia and Botswana at Kazungula. Through re-engagement Zimbabwe is now part of the Kazungula Bridge project,” he said.

In his 2018 National Budget, the Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Patrick Chinamasa allocated $14,5m towards upgrading infrastructure at sadc’s busiest inland port.

According to the budget statement; “A total of $4,2million will be spent on relocating the Vehicle Inspectorate Department (VID) from the border.

          Botswana:Early Childhood Education Crucial - Arone      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

          Remittance rip-offs      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

All over the world migrant workers are sending money home to their families. The money pays hospital bills and school fees, buys land, builds houses and sets up small businesses. The cash goes from the US back to Mexico, from the Gulf back to India, from the UK back to Somalia, and from South Africa back to Malawi, Zimbabwe and the rest of southern Africa. 

But what these workers probably do not realize, since they usually only ever send to one country, is that the cost of sending money varies greatly. Now a study of the cost of remittances, carried out by London's Overseas Development Institute with support from the fund-raising charity Comic Relief, has revealed that transfers to African countries cost around half as much again as the global average, and twice as much as transfers to Latin America. 

The ODI estimates that if remittance charges were brought down to the world average, the money saved could educate an extra 14 million primary school children, half of all those currently out of school on the continent.

The bulk of this money goes through money transfer companies rather than banks, since the recipients are unlikely to have bank accounts, and transfer companies are quick, efficient and have a wide network of agents. But just two big international players dominate the business in Africa, Moneygram and Western Union, and participants in a meeting to launch the research were highly critical of the way they seemed to be abusing their market dominance.

Rwanda's High Commissioner in London, Williams Nkurunziza, said he was shocked at what the report revealed. “If you look at the remittances, 30 or 40 percent of the money that goes to Africa goes to rural areas,” he said. “This money goes to the people who are most needy, and you are allowing a multinational corporation to take bread out of the mouth of hungry children. This is not what I would call responsible capitalism!”

Glenys Kinnock, opposition spokesman on International Development in the upper house of the UK parliament, who chaired the meeting, called on the country's financial regulatory authority to intervene over the issue of excessive charges. “It is not a technocratic issue,” she said, “although it may sound like one. It is also about people's lives and the future of their children... These things have to change. We can't put up any longer with the prospect of its making things so difficult, very often impossible, for people who have such needs.”

At the end of last year, when the ODI did its research, the fees and charges to send money to most of Africa were around 12 percent - a bit less to Zambia or Tanzania, a bit more to Uganda, Malawi and the Gambia - against a world average of just over 8 percent. Even that is quite expensive; the governments of the G8 and G20 countries have pledged themselves to working towards reducing this to 5 percent.

It found that in more than 30 countries the two big players had more than 50 percent of the market; and in 10 countries they had more than 90 percent. Sometimes either Moneygram or Western Union had an effective monopoly, but even where both companies were present it did not necessarily mean that customers had much choice; one company could still have a monopoly of outlets in a particular area, and the companies habitually make their paying-out agents sign contracts promising not to also act as agents for their rivals. 

Somalia different

Significantly, the one country where the big two are absent - Somalia - has far lower remittance charges; transfers go through a number of smaller, competing companies.

Competition has been limited by the fallout from the US “war on terror”, with the banks who do bulk international transfers citing money-laundering and anti-terrorism regulations as the reason they are reluctant to extend facilities to smaller companies. Now only the biggest of the Somali companies, Dahabshiil, still has an account with a major British bank (Barclays) and even that concession was forced by a court case and is only until other arrangements can be put in place.

Inter-Africa transfers cost most

But if charges to send money to Africa from outside are steep, the cost of sending money from one African country to another can be eye-watering. 

Dilip Ratha, who works on these issues for the World Bank says exchange controls are one of the reasons the rates are so high; in some places sending money out of the country is illegal. “So if you are sending money,” he says, “let's say from Benin to Ghana, it is actually allowed (in some countries it's not even allowed) but first the CFA has to be passed through into euros or sterling or dollars, and then it has to be transferred back into the local cedi, and in both cases you pay commission. Some sort of regional currency market really needs to be created.” 

"So if you are sending money, let's say from Benin to Ghana, it is actually allowed (in some countries it's not even allowed) but first the CFA has to be passed through into euros or sterling or dollars, and then it has to be transferred back into the local cedi, and in both cases you pay commission. Some sort of regional currency market really needs to be created"  

The report found 10 routes with bank transfer charges over 20 percent. Charges from Nigeria to Ghana were 22 percent. To send from Tanzania to the rest of East Africa, or from South Africa to its near neighbours is particularly expensive, peaking at 25 percent for bank transfers between South African and Malawi. Some of the fees charged by money transfer companies are even higher; if you send money that way from Ghana to Nigeria you may have to pay a staggering 39 percent.

In some places mobile phone based systems like M-Pesa have made in-country transfers much easier and cheaper, but they haven't really taken off internationally, largely because conservative, inflexible regulatory systems insist that all international transfers must go through conventional banks. And African banks tend to have very high charges, often because they are forced by governments to finance government projects or make uncommercial loans. 

Chukwuemeka Chikezie of the Up Africa consultancy told IRIN a lot of the responsibility lay with African governments. “One of the reasons M-Pesa took off in Kenya was because the authorities nurtured and enabled innovation. If you look at other countries the regulators have tended to stifle innovation. They are very risk-averse and they don't enable even limited experiments to prove that the markets can absorb technical innovation.”

In addition, money-laundering regulations are putting impossible demands on systems designed to serve the poor, requiring, for instance, “know your customer” procedures like taking copies of ID documents for anyone receiving an international payout. Selma Ribica of M-Pesa points out this is an impossibility for agents in rural areas with no power supply. She told IRIN she would like to see a more realistic, tiered approach with much lighter regulation for small international transfers (under, say, US$200-300) which are most unlikely to have anything to do with money laundering.

Beware Facebook, Walmart

M-Pesa depends on moving money between different customers' mobile phone accounts. Now people are beginning to think of other kinds of electronic “purses” which might be linked in the same way. 

Facebook has just proposed allowing transfers between customers who have accounts with the company which they normally use to make payments for online games. So far this is only proposed for payments within the European Union, but Facebook has a huge geographical spread and has said it is keen to extend its reach in Africa. 

And the big profits made by the transfer companies are tempting other players into the market. The latest to announce it is starting money transfers is the US supermarket chain Walmart, with recipients being able to pick up their cash from any shop in the chain. To start with this will only work within the United States and Puerto Rico, but Walmart is an international group with nearly 350 stores in South Africa, and it also has a presence in Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Malawi and Mozambique, opening up the tempting prospect of a new, and cheaper way for workers to send money home.

All these new ways of sending money aim to undercut Moneygram and Western Union. Now Western Union has responded by offering so-called “zero-fee” transfers to Africa if the money is sent from a bank account rather by credit card or cash. This would mean a saving of just under £5 ($8.40) for someone sending $100 from the UK to Liberia. The company would still make money (nearly $4) by using a favourable exchange rate, but it would bring the cost down to just below the G8/G20 target. 

For African's hard-pressed and hard-working migrants and their families back home, change may - finally - be on the way.

          The southern African climate under 1.5° and 2°C of global warming as simulated by CORDEX models      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The southern African climate under 1.5° and 2°C of global warming as simulated by CORDEX models Maúre, GA; Pinto, I; Ndebele-Murisa, MR; Muthige, Mavhungu S; Lennard, C; Nikulin, G; Dosio, A; Meque, AO Results from an 25 regional climate model simulations from the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) Africa initiative are used to assess the projected changes in temperature and precipitation over southern Africa at two Global Warming Levels (GWL), namely 1.5°C and 2.0°C, relative to preindustrial values, under the Representative Concentration Pathway 8.5. The results show a robust increase in temperature compared to the control period (1971-2000) ranging from 0.5 to 1.5°C for the 1.5°C GWL and from 1.5 to 2.5°C, for the 2.0°C GWL. Areas in the southwestern region of the subcontinent, covering South Africa and parts of Namibia and Botswana are projected to experience the largest increase in temperature, which are greater than the lobal mean warming, particularly during the September-October-November season. On the other hand, under 1.5°C GWL, models exhibit a robust reduction in precipitation of up to 0.4 mm/day (roughly 20% of the climatological values) over the Limpopo Basin and smaller areas of the Zambezi Basin in Zambia, and also parts of Western Cape, South Africa. Models project precipitation increase of up to 0.1 mm/day over central and western South Africa and in southern Namibia. Under 2.0°C GWL, a larger fraction of land is projected to face robust decreases between 0.2 and 0.4 mm/day (around 1020% of the climatological values) over most of the central subcontinent and parts of western South Africa and northern Mozambique. Decreases in precipitation are accompanied by increases in the number of consecutive dry days and decreases in consecutive wet days over the region. The importance of achieving the Paris Agreement is imperative for southern Africa as the projected changes under both the 1.5°C, and more so, 2.0°C GWL imply significant potential risks to agricultural and economic productivity, human and ecological systems health and water resources with implied increase in regional water stresses. © 2018 The Author(s).

          Raptor population trends in northern Botswana: A re-survey of road transects after 20 years      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Publication date: August 2018

Author(s): Rebecca Garbett, Marc Herremans, Glyn Maude, Richard P. Reading, Arjun Amar

Abstract

Across Africa, many raptor species, especially vultures, are in steep decline. Botswana is regionally important for numerous raptor species including vultures, but recent population trends of raptors within this country are totally unknown. In 2015–2016 we repeated road transects for raptors across northern Botswana that were first conducted in 1991–1995. In total, we re-surveyed 20,712 km of transects. From these data we explored changes in abundance of 29 species. Fourteen species (48%) showed significant declines. Of these, 11 species declined by >50% and three species declined by 37–50%. Non-significant declines of >70% were shown for four species, of 30–65% for six species and of <10% for a further two species. In contrast only three species, all large eagles – tawny eagle (Aquila rapax), brown snake eagle (Circaetus cinereus) and black-chested snake eagle (Circaetus pectoralis), showed significant but small increases of between 6 and 15%. For most species, population trends were similar both inside and outside of protected areas, with only two species showing significantly different trends. Declines of bateleur eagle (Terathopius ecaudatus) were lower inside protected areas. In contrast, brown snake eagles showed stable populations inside protected areas but large increases outside of protected areas. These re-surveys suggest extremely worrying trends for multiple raptor species in Botswana, and highlights the benefit of repeating historical surveys to understand population trends in countries that lack systematic monitoring of wildlife populations.

          15 celebrity proposal stories guaranteed to restore your faith in love      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

chrissy teigen john legendEmma McIntyre/Getty Images

  • We can't seem to get enough of our favorite celebrity romance stories
  • Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton while on vacation in Kenya in December 2010. 
  • From Emily Blunt and John Krasinski to George and Amal Clooney, here is how some of the most romantic celebrity proposals went down. 


If you're anything like us, proposal stories never get old. Whether the people involved are our 
parents or two random people on the internet, proposals never fail to make us cry for the beginning of two people's happily-ever-after—or so we hope. Even celebrity couples whom we've never met before, such as Chrissy Teigen and John Legend and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, still produce the same love-filled emotions every time we hear about their famous hubbies getting down on one knee.

Because everyone loves a good love story, we've rounded up the most romantic celebrity proposals we've ever heard about. From over-the-top arrangements to plans that went awry, these funny and heartwarming stories will make you swoon. Find out how your favorite stars fell in love ahead.

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian

To understand the romance behind Ohanian's proposal to Williams, you have to understand how they met. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Williams revealed that she met Ohanian at a hotel pool area in Rome. Annoyed that Ohanian was sitting next to her and her friends when there were dozens of tables still available, Williams lied and told him that there was a rat where he was sitting. His response? "I’m from Brooklyn. I see rats all the time."

Williams laughed and the two started dating. A year and half later, when Ohanian proposed, he did it in the same spot in Rome where the two met. When he got down on one knee, there was also—yup, you guessed it—a plastic rat on a table nearby.



Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Markle and Harry were roasting a chicken on a night in November 2017 in their home in Nottingham Cottage when the prince proposed. As the chicken was roasting (fun fact: they were using Ina Garten's roast chicken recipe), Harry got down on one knee and presented his future wife with a diamond from Botswana that incorporated two stones from his mother Princess Diana's jewelry collection.

"It was just an amazing surprise," Markle told the BBC. "It was so sweet and natural and very romantic."



Emmy Rossum and Sam Esmail

Rossum and Esmail, a director on "Mr. Robot," have a tradition of reading The New York Times' "Modern Love" section every Sunday. One week, as Rossum read, she slowly realized that the article was about her and Esmail's love story, which is when her future husband got down on one knee.

"Then one weekend we didn't read it—I don't remember why exactly—and the following Friday he reminded me that we hadn't. I was actually in kind of a bad mood that day, so I said, 'Oh, well I'll read it eventually.' And he said, 'No, no, no, I think you should read it.' And I said, 'I'm having a back spasm. I'm actually going to take a bath and have a glass of wine, but if you really want to hear it, I'll read it to you from the bathtub. So I got in the bathtub with the 'Modern Love' section as he's posted up on the sink. I didn't notice any kind of ring in his pocket, and I began to read the article, and the story is about a director who falls in love with an actress, and I started to think: Huh, that's strange. And then I realized that it was our love story," Rossum told Vogue.
