Dr Denis Mukwege, DR Congo’s renowned ‘rape surgeon’, makes Africa proud as he wins the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize

Renowned Congolese gynaecologist and surgeon Dr Denis Mukwege has been named the winner of the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize which he won with Nadia Murad for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict.

Mukwege, popularly known as the ‘rape surgeon’, becomes the 23rd African and first Congolese to ever win the Nobel Peace Prize which was last awarded to Africans in 2011; Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Leymah Gbowee of Liberia.

“Denis Mukwege’s basic principle is that ‘justice is everyone’s business’. The 2018 Peace Laureate is the foremost, most unifying symbol, both nationally and internationally, of the struggle to end sexual violence in war and armed conflicts,” says the Nobel Committee after the announcement on Friday, October 5, 2018.

63-year-old Mukwege has helped thousands of women and girls who have been victims of rape and sexual abuse at the hands of rebel forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo since the beginning of the civil war in the early 90s.

He founded the Panzi Hospital in the South Kivu province in 1999 to provide free and comprehensive care for female victims of rape and other forms of sexual violence during the conflict.

Mukwege will receive a citation and an 18-carat gold medal that bears the face of the founder Alfred Nobel at an award ceremony in December. The prize for the joint winners includes SEK 9,000,000 ($1,110,000) which will be paid next year.

Mukwege has received scores of honours including Europe’s top human rights prize – Sakharov Prize – and three nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize for his service and fight against sexual violence. He was also named by TIME magazine as one of the world’s 100 most influential people in 2016.

His hospital treats over 46,000 girls and women with gynaecological injuries, about half of them, victims of sexual violence.

Mukwege has been very vocal in the DRC where he called for a change in the country’s governance system. This he re-emphasized during a speech at the United Nations in 2012 where he condemned the government’s passive response to the violence against women.

Despite the numerous support he gained from the public for his vociferous nature, he narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in 2012 that claimed the life of his guard who took the bullet in his place.

Mukwege went into exile in Europe but later returned to a rousing welcome the following year to help his struggling hospital to stay open.

The life of the “rape surgeon”, as he is popularly called, has been documented in the film, “The Man Who Mends Women”, and a book.

History of the Nobel Prizes

The Nobel Prizes have been awarded since 1901 and conferred on top achievers in six fields: Physics, Chemistry, Literature, Physiology or Medicine, Promotion of Peace and Economic Sciences.

Prize-winners are often individuals, teams of two or three and organisations called Nobel Laureates. The laureates are nominated by their peers, including former laureates, politicians, justices and academics among a few others, and then secretly chosen by Nobel Committees and prize-awarding institutions.

For the peace prize, the Norwegian Nobel Committee composed of five members is appointed by the Norwegian parliament.

The Committee chooses the laureates through a majority vote before the winner is announced in October.

The awards were created by Swedish scientist and philanthropist Alfred Nobel who bequeathed most of his fortune to the establishment of the prize upon his passing in 1896.

The first prizes were presented in 1901 and since then, over 900 people have been awarded.

Details of the selection process and nominees can only be revealed until after 50 years.

Despite the Nobel Foundation’s requirement that prizes be awarded only to living recipients, Canadian immunologist Ralph M. Steinman was awarded a 2011 Nobel for medicine posthumously. The committee did not know he had died three days prior.

The winners receive their prizes at a ceremony on December 10th – the anniversary of the death of Alfred Nobel.

All the prizes except the peace prize are presented in Stockholm by the King of Sweden. The peace prize is awarded in Oslo by the Norwegian Nobel Committee with the King of Norway.

The prize includes a sum of money, a citation and an 18-carat gold medal that bears the face of the founder Alfred Nobel. The money is received after a year.

Why is it so hard for Africans to visit other African countries?

Malian passports
Many African travellers say visas and transport on the continent are too complex and expensive (Photo copyright GETTY IMAGES).

Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote has said he needs 38 visas to travel within the continent on his Nigerian passport. Many European nationals, meanwhile, waltz into most Africans countries visa-free.

African nations were supposed to scrap visa requirements for all African citizens by 2018.

It was a key part of the African Union (AU) “vision and roadmap for the next 50 years” that was adopted by all members states in 2013.

But to date, the Seychelles is the only nation where visa-free travel is open to all Africans – as well as to citizens of every nation – as it always has been.

A recent AU report found that Africans can travel without a visa to just 22% of other African countries.

It is a sensitive topic, provoking xenophobic attitudes in some of Africa’s wealthier nations despite policymakers from Cape to Cairo insisting that the free movement of people is key for economic transformation.

Media captionKatchie Nzama shares her five African travel tips

“Our leaders seem to go to ridiculous lengths to preserve and protect the colonial borders,” says South African travel blogger Katchie Nzama, who has visited 35 of Africa’s 55 countries.

The AU may want a borderless continent where its 1.2 billion people can move freely between nations, similar to the European Union, but it seems there is no shortage of obstacles.

Whether it is immigration officials in Burkina Faso charging an arbitrary $200 (£155) for a visa on arrival, or Tanzania arresting and deporting other East Africans who enter illegally, or Tunisia refusing visas to stranded African passengers after a cancelled flight, intra-African travel is fraught with suspicion.

Double standards?

South Africa appears to be the most visible representative of the continent’s visa double standard, remaining largely closed to other Africans but more welcoming to the wider world.

Citizens of only 15 African nations can travel to South Africa without a visa, yet holders of 28 different European passports can enter the country freely.

A graph showing the percentages of African nationalities which require visas in order to enter South Africa, Nigeria, Mauritius, Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya and the Seychelles.

The country’s Department of Home Affairs spokesman Thabo Mokgola defends its policy.

“This is an unfair assertion – visa-waiver agreements are premised on reciprocity and we are finalising such with a number of African countries,” he told the BBC.

Just how that reciprocity is applied is unclear.

Kenya, for example, gives South African citizens a visa on arrival for free. But Kenyans must apply for a visa, then pay a service fee and wait for at least five working days before travelling to South Africa.

In 2015, two years after the African Union asked members to commit to abolishing visa requirements for all Africans by 2018, South Africa did the opposite and announced stricter regulations that were widely criticised.

Hit by a recession and a drop in tourist numbers, the country caved in and recently announced that it was relaxing travel rules in the hope of reviving its struggling economy.

 

African passport

Namibia, Mauritius, Ghana, Rwanda, Benin and Kenya have all loosened travel restrictions for other African nationals, and now either grant a visa on arrival or allow for visits of up to 90 days with just a passport.

But citizens of African countries still need a visa to travel to more than half of the continent’s 54 countries, protecting borders drawn up by European colonisers more than a century ago.

“Somebody like me, despite the size of our group, I need 38 visas to move around Africa,” complained Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote in an interview in 2016.

He is reportedly one of the first in line to receive the African passport which was launched in 2016. The travel document is supposed to eventually replace individual nations’ passports, but is currently only available to some heads of state, senior diplomats and top AU officials.

It is easy enough to travel within regional blocs such as the East African Community, the Economic Community of West African States, the Southern African Development Community, the Maghreb, as well as the Central African Economic and Monetary Community. But it is rarely possible to travel from one region to another without restrictions.

Extortionate prices

Another impediment to African travel is that there are very few commercial flights from one region to another and when they do exist, they are prohibitively expensive.

“Flying from Kenya to Namibia is the same price as flying to Thailand, and the cost to Dubai from Nairobi is way cheaper than flying to Morocco,” says Kenyan travel blogger Winnie Rioba.

And this is on top of the visa fees.

Ms Rioba was charged $90 for a visa for Djibouti, more than the $75 she paid for a Schengen visa, which gave her access to 26 European states.

“I’ve spent more money applying for visas than transport costs in my travels across the continent,” agrees Ms Nzama.

“This is not just money paid to embassies. It’s the time and money wasted going back and forth to embassies, and preparing the required documents, which in most cases I felt were not necessary,” the South African travel blogger says.

To help her fellow Nigerians find their way through the maze of requirements, entrepreneur Funmi Oyatogun created a colour-coded map outlining which African countries were easiest to travel to:

Funmi Oyatogun@funmioyatogun created a map showing ALL the African countries and which ones are easiest to visit from Nigeria! Visa reqs, flight access, etc were considered.

“Our focus is to simplify travel for Africans across Africa,” she says of her start-up TVP Adventures.

She believes these efforts are a necessary part of what she calls the “African travel spring”.

“We are breaking through the barriers that made it difficult in the past – lack of information, poor flight connections, and incorrect perceptions of other African countries.”

There is widespread support for scrapping the visa requirements for Africans travelling within the continent.

But as the 2018 deadline slips by, few believe it is likely to happen soon.

And while we wait, it might remain more attractive to leave the continent.

“How will I convince an African traveller to go with me to Angola if the trip will cost as much as travel to five countries in Europe?” asks Ms Rioba.

Even a dollar billionaire like Mr Dangote has problems visiting his many investments across his home continent.

“They give you visas as if it is a favour,” he says.

Prophet Wakisa Chizaso is Closing his Churches and Returning to ECG Church to Learn as a Man of God, Serve as a Son, and Receive His Blessings from his Spiritual Father, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri (Major 1)

On October 8, 2018, Prophet Wakisa Chizaso announced that he made a decision to close his church, Revival International Christian Center (RICC) Church, and to return back to his home church, Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) Church and support his father’s vision. Prophet Wakisa Chizaso said he was convicted in his heart to return back and be with his spiritual father, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri (Major 1), in ECG church. In the Facebook post which broke the news to the world, Prophet Wakisa Chizaso said “I left for my church 7 years ago in peace with the blessing of my father and I am returning back whilst my father and mum warmly welcomes me“.  According to his announcement, the 3 main reasons for his return are:
“1. To learn as a man of God
2. To serve as a son
3. For my blessings”.
He therefore announced to all his RICC churches in South Africa, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, America, etc., and to all his followers that they must continue following him in ECG Church. He also cautioned them that he may return back to his church RICC in future when his father Major 1 will see it necessary that he is fully capable of standing alone.
While some people may not receive this decision positively, all that matters is that the will of God be manifested over his life and ministries.
Prophet Wakisa Chizaso
 I would like to wish him all the best for this decision and I pray God to lead him and Major 1 in a way that this decision will glorify God. I hope the thousands of followers that Prophet Wakisa has will continue supporting him. May everything be well with him and his family and may the transition be smooth for him. Prophet Wakisa Chizaso is a great prophet and surely, greater things are awaiting him. The transition may be a little bit challenging for he will be picking up new privileges and responsibilities. Nevertheless, I hope and pray that in the end, he will be satisfied by the consequences of this bold decision and that his work will better glorify God.
Like written in a previous article, Prophet Wakisa Chizaso is originally from Nkhata Bay District (Malawi), a few kilometers from Mzuzu. He was born in a family of 5 and grew up in the Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP Church). His birth and childhood had severe complications such that his parents lost hope that he would live. For instance, he was born blind and had intestines outside his body and he was bleeding about 125 milliliters daily for 15 years. His parents thought he would die any day. Henceforth, his parents named him Wakisa which in his dialect Karonga means “God have mercy.” Because of the complications Prophet Wakisa Chizaso faced early in life, his parents took him to witch doctors and medical doctors, but no healing happened. Medical doctors were refusing to operate on him saying he may die any day. Those days, he was a teacher and active leader in the CCAP Church. One night, the God of Mercy sent him an Angel in his dreams. The Angel of the Lord touched his head and healed him from all his diseases. In that dream, he heard a voice telling him: “you are my honorable vessel which l have called and chosen to save lost souls, heal their diseases, see what people are passing through and prophecy to them…” Immediately afterwards, he woke up from the dream, his eyes opened, and he started seeing for the first time, no more bleeding nor intestines outside his body. The words he heard in the dream and the scope of the miracles that are following him today are some of the reasons he is called Hon 1 Major. Since he was in primary school, he was foretelling and foreseeing things which all came to pass. However, he did not know his calling till he met Prophet Shepherd Bushiri (Major 1) who officially led him to Jesus Christ on August 24, 2007 in Mzuzu City. Immediately, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri became his spiritual father, meaning that Prophet Wakisa Chizaso is one of the very early sons of Major 1. In his own words, Prophet Wakisa said: “Major Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is a man who has built my spiritual life and my prophetic ministry. l am advancing because of his mentorship on me. Without him, l could not go far since no one can make it in life without a coach”. For example, the first mansion that Prophet Wakisa had in Malawi was given to him by Major 1.
Prophet Wakisa and Major 1 several years ago
Because of the enlightenment he received about the Word of God and his calling, he left the Church of Central African Presbyterian, and founded the Revival International Christian Center Ministries (RICC). God has been using him mightily in teaching, wisdom, revelations, detailed prophecies, instant healings, and deliverances. Many people testified that he is very sharp, accurate, and microscopic in forensic prophecies. His services are filled with shocking miracles. For instance, in his ministries, dead people come back to life, incurable diseases such as HIV/AIDS and cancer have been healed, people very often get miracle money and miracle airtime on their phone. He has revealed that God “fills him of Higher Dimensional Spiritual Energy which heals diseases, delivers people from demons and makes people rich”. Prophet Wakisa Chizaso believes that “the Lord has anointed him to bring lost souls to Him, heal and deliver people, restore whatsoever they have lost, release what they lack, anoint them into different offices, lift their spiritual dimension and connect them to higher spiritual energy of the Holy Spirit”. Because of the signs and wonders which are accompanying his ministries, countless people across the globe flock to him all the time so he ministers to them. Prophet Wakisa Chizaso has preached in more than 37 countries including Malawi, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, USA, Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Switzerland, Tanzania, Botswana, Namibia, Congo, Zambia, etc. As of 2017, he has laid hands on and prayed for 7 Presidents and heads of nations one on one.
Prophet Wakisa Chizaso is happily married to Prophetess Sarah Chizaso and so far, they have one Son, Asa Shepherd Chizaso named after Prophet Shepherd Bushiri (Major 1). Their wedding was officiated by Major 1 himself in an ECG (Enlightened Christian Gathering) Church.
We wish them the best for their decision to close their churches and better serve their spiritual parents, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri (Major 1) and Prophetess Mary Bushiri.

Tanzania: President refuses private jet to UN, flies Commercial and says use the money to fix hospitals

President of Tanzania, John Pombe Magufuli last Monday while leaving for the New York for the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, refused go via a private jet, but Joined a commercial flight instead.

He said the money that would have been used in flying the private jet should be channeled into providing equipment and other essentials for hospitals in the country.

He said the needs of the hospitals are far more superior to him being flown in a private jet at the cost of the country’s tax payers.

He believes once the hospitals are well equipped, it will accelerate and enhance healthcare delivery in the country and save lives.

He is on record to have fired the CEO and management of a whole health facility in the country recently when he detected some malfunctioning equipment and elements of corruption within the management.

White farmers in Namibia own 70 per cent of agricultural land

By  on September 25, 2018 — As Namibia gets ready for a land conference from the 1st to the 5th of October, a report from the Namibia Land Statistics states that 70% of land is owned by Whites. The conference is set to address land policies and how the process of restitution and reclamation can be expedited.

Commercial farming does very little for the labour force

The history of Southern Africa is replete with white settlers seizing land from the indigenous owners of the land; Africans,  who were pushed to arid areas and confined in their movement. In South Africa, Zimbabwe, and now Namibia, the land  question has been a major talking point, with calls and campaigns that the land should be returned to the original Black owners.

In a 48 page report titled Namibia Land Statistics the Namibia Statistics Agency announced that 70 per cent of arable land is owned by white farmers in Namibia. Despite gaining independence nearly 30 years ago, a huge population of indigenous Namibians still don’t own the land. A similar case applies to South Africa where 72 per cent of the land is owned by Whites.

As at independence, in 1990, Namibia had adopted the willing buyer-willing seller policy. The White minority which was less than 0.5 per cent owned nearly all the commercial land. The black population lived on communal land. With the government seeking to transfer 15 million hectares of farming land to Blacks by 2020, the process has been seen as a little slow. According to the Namibian Agriculture Union, only 27 per cent of the land was distributed in 2015. The land situation in South Africa is also precarious, and it influences the conversation in Namibia.

Black people make up 80 per cent of Namibia’s population, but the land is not equitably distributed. In recent times, the issue of land expropriation has crossed the South African borders and found root in Namibia. The quest for land reform has been premised on the national resettlement policy which deals with the redistribution of agricultural land to disadvantaged and landless Namibians. The country’s Ministry of Land is targeting to acquire 10 million hectares of land in the next two years.

Namibia was once a German colony from 1884 to 1915 and is still undergoing a slow process of decolonization. Unlike its neighbour South Africa that’s set on taking radical land reforms led by the voice of Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema, Namibia’s President Hage Geingob has called for calm. He said, “It is true that they came and stole the land 100 years ago, but a white boy who was born on that land has Namibian blood.”

As Namibians seek to address the issue of land, a national land conference is set to take place from the 1st to the 5th of October, 2018. The conference is set to address land policies and how the process of restitution and reclamation can be expedited.

Prophet Victor Boateng denies rift with Prophet Uebert Angel

Ghanaian Prophet Victor Kusi Boateng has issued a public statement via his Facebook page and quashed what he called “stories and speculations” suggesting that his relationship with Uebert Angel was strained after the GoodNews Church: Spirit Embassy founder embraced popular Nigerian televangelist, Chris Oyakhilome (Pastor Chris), as his spiritual father.

“Having seen the media awash with stories and speculations concerning Prophet Uebert Angel and I, I felt in my spirit it was time that I make the body of Christ understand and have a more defined picture.
My relationship with Prophet Uebert Angel is as good as it used to be,” Boateng wrote.

“As of the Pastor Chris relationship, it is not a new development, this issue was made clear between Prophet Uebert Angel and I from the onset. I am grateful to God for the opportunity to mentor him in a way I did as we all now pray to benefit from the oil thats upon his head,” Prophet Boateng added.

Unknown to many outside his church organisation, Pastor Chris played an inspirational role in the formation of Uebert Angel’s Spirit Embassy church in 2007.

It is believed that Angel came into contact with the ministry of Pastor Chris in 2003 in Manchester after the death of Kenneth Hagin but it was in 2005 during New Year’s Eve, Angel and his wife Beverly, were watching Pastor Chris’s New year Message on television and the seeds were immediately sown.

It was almost like a homecoming this past week as flamboyant preacher/businessman Uebert Angel travelled to Nigeria for a "Global Finance Conference" where he met and spent some time with popular Nigerian televangelist, Chris Oyakhilome (Pastor Chris), the founder of Christ Embassy.

To understand this, you would have to go back to a 2011 birthday magazine interview where Angel listed American preacher Kenneth Hagin as his spiritual father. After the death of Hagin in 2003, sources claim Angel sought a new mentor in lieu of meeting Pastor Chris.

In March this year Angel travelled to Nigeria as a surprise guest speak at “Global Finance Conference” where he met and spent some time with Pastor Chris.

“My level of indebtedness, honour and love to and for this man, pastor CHRIS OYAKHILOME, is beyond my ability to articulate and even my own comprehension,” Angel wrote at the time

“It is then of paramount importance that it be known that Pastor CHRIS OYAKHILOME is not a man I call a ‘friend’ but a mentor, a life coach and a ‘father figure’ because calling such grace a ‘Friend’ is tantamount undoing all of my spiritual dignity and integrity,” he added.

Pastor Chris is the founding president of Believers’ Loveworld Incorporated, also known as Christ Embassy, a Bible-based Christian ministry headquartered in Lagos beloved to boast close to 10 million registered church members and millions of followers across the world.

His ministry holds meetings in the United Kingdom and the United States, and has “healing school” sessions in South Africa and Canada.

The church also hosts Higher Life conferences in Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, UK, US and Canada. Pastor Chris also runs an online prayer network using social media to send messages to Christians in several countries. He also operates a smartphone messenger called KingsChat.

Uebert Angel targets one million people

The Spirit Embassy: Good News Church led by Prophet Uebert Angel says it is going to print out and distribute ‘Daily Devotionals’ targeting an ambitious one million people across the world including prisons and some non-christian areas.

Daily devotionals are publications which provide a specific spiritual reading for each calendar day, forming part of the discipline of Bible reading and prayer with which Christians start or end their day.

Prophet Angel admits he is inspired by Nigerian Pastor Chris Oyakhilome whose “Rhapsody Of Realities Daily Devotional” is one of the world’s most distributed and translated daily devotionals. On its Twitter account the church says it has distributed 1 billion copies in nearly 1000 languages.

Angel who has been spending a lot of time with Pastor Chris appears to be emulating his mentor. A spokesman for the church told Nehanda Radio; “We are trying to reach non-christian areas. We are not planning to build churches yet but just encouraging people to receive Christ.

“When they turn to Christ they then find a church, the church does not have to be ours. Each copy will be about £2 to print and will be free for recipients. The church will foot the bill,” the spokesman said.

Only last week Angel’s spiritual son, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, announced that he was embarking on a whirlwind tour of the world in an evangelism effort to harvest two million souls for Jesus Christ.

His media relations manager Maynard Manyowa confirmed Bushiri has gone on the offensive preaching the gospel under the banner of the ‘Global Prophetic Tour’. As part of the tour, Bushiri has been to Zimbabwe, Australia, Kenya, Nicaragua, Nigeria, South Africa, USA and South Korea.

Bill Gates Wants World’s Leaders to Invest in Africa’s Young People

Decades of progress in the global war against poverty could stall as population growth surges in some of the world’s poorest regions, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation warns in a new report that calls for boosting investments in health and education in Africa.

The annual Goalkeepers Data Report tracks progress across the globe on 18 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, including child and maternal deaths, access to contraceptives, malaria rates and sanitation.

Timed for release as world leaders convene at the United Nations General Assembly in New York this week, the report also is released as First Lady Melania Trump prepares for her first trip to Africa next month. Her visit could be a valuable assist, Bill Gates told reporters on a conference call.

“It’s fantastic when we can get as many of the people who are thinking about these issues, who can bring visibility to these issues, to visit Africa,” said Gates, who noted that the first lady’s visit comes on the heels of recent tours by German chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron.

“Whenever these trips are taking place we do our best to make sure that some of the challenges and some of the progress gets highlighted,” Gates said.

The foundation report argues that gains in lifting millions out of persistent poverty in China and India could be eclipsed by burgeoning birth rates in the poorest countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.

“The world’s priority for the next three decades should be a third wave of poverty reduction in Africa,” Bill and Melinda Gates write in the report. “To continue improving the human condition, our task now is to help create opportunities in Africa’s fastest-growing, poorest countries.”

According to the report, the continent’s population is projected to nearly double in size by 2050. More than 40 percent of the extremely poor will live in just two countries: Democratic Republic of the Congo and Nigeria.

Trump’s Africa visit will be her first solo international trip. The White House has not yet announced her itinerary, but Trump said in a written statement that she’s interested in learning about the issues that confront children living on the continent. She said she also looks forward to highlighting successful humanitarian work and development programs.

The first lady, who has sought to highlight the well-being of children, plans to travel without President Donald Trump, who was roundly criticized for using the word “shithole” to refer to several countries, including some in Africa.

SInce its launch in 2000, the foundation established by the Microsoft founder and his wife has invested more than $15 billion in projects relevant to Africa. The foundation has also been active in Central and South America and the Caribbean, including supporting efforts in Haiti to combat tropical diseases such as lymphatic filariasis, commonly known as elephantiasis.

Gates said he is optimistic that the world can continue to make gains, despite dire warnings in the report.

Africans deserve to know details of deals their leaders sign with China

By  on September 6, 2018 — 

China’s footprints are all over the African continent, signing deals with many countries. However, the finer details of China-Africa loans are often kept secret. There are concerns that African countries are mortgaging their natural resources as collateral for the loans. The China-Africa deals ought to be transparent, and the public has the right to scrutinise the agreements.

President of China Xi Jinping at an informal meeting of heads of state and government of the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).

The news of China taking over Sri Lanka’s port and 15000 hectares of land on a 99 year lease recently raised questions and debate on the African continent about the kind of agreements African presidents are signing with China. The deal which has raised eyebrows was signed between  two state firms, Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) and China Merchants Port Holdings.

The South African parliament, led by the minority leader from the Democratic Alliance (DA) Mmusi Maimane, demanded to know from President Cyril Ramaphosa “the terms of Eskom’s $2,313,143,580 (R33 billion) loan with the Chinese Development Bank.” Maimane gave President Ramaphosa 14 days to table the terms in parliament “in the interest of openness and transparency.” Eskom is South Africa’s electricity public utility.

Many other African countries have made trade murky deals with China. Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu has signed off on at least $8 billion from the Chinese. According to Africa Confidential, talks are underway for a Chinese company to take over Zesco, a state owned power company in Zambia. Africa Confidential, in a report titled Bonds, bills and even bigger debts revealed that Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) is already being run by the Chinese. There are concerns that the Kenneth Kaunda Airport is likely to end up in the hands of the Chinese if Zambia doesn’t pay its debts.

The trade deals signed by African leaders have not been revealed to the public. The 2018 edition of the Forum for China- Africa Cooperation summit held in Beijing, China.  At the summit China pledged US$60 billion of financing to Africa. The question many have asked is: what is Africa offering China in return for the major loans? Trade and aid and loans come with clauses and conditions that are never revealed to the public. It is the citizens who end up paying for such trade deals. Grant Harris, a former Africa advisor to President Barack Obama said in a BBC interview that “China is a debt trap for Djibouti, Kenya and other African countries.”

The finer details of China-Africa loans are often kept secret by both parties. There are concerns that African countries are mortgaging their wealth in the form of mineral and oil resources as collateral for the loans. Angola, Africa’s third largest economy is already heavily indebted to China. The Export-Import Bank of China, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, and the China Development Bank extended $14.5 billion in credit to Angola.  For Angola, it repays China in crude oil making it China’s second largest supplier after Saudi Arabia. Meaning that it would repay its debt to China through its major mineral resource and foreign earner, oil. The effect of such an agreement is that Angola is left with little to sell on the world market. Angola has fallen into China’s economic grip, a grip it’ll struggle to free itself from in a long while.  China has been lauded for its loans that go directly into infrastructural development. The question of the quality of infrastructure has not been fully scrutinised.

The request by South African parliamentarian, and opposition DA leader Maimane to have the terms of the contract South Africa signed with China tabled before the parliament should be a requirement for governments that have signed deals with the Chinese. There is no denying that many African countries have binding social, economic, and political ties with the Chinese. The deals between China and Africa ought to be fair and transparent.  The Chinese are not in the business of doing charity work, but the country is targeting the natural resources of African countries to advance its own economic development, to cement its position as a global power and leader, thus every country on the continent needs to be wary.

THE UNTOLD STORY OF AFRICA’S EMERGING BUSINESS LEADER

Shepherd Bushiri Investment, SBI, is arguably one of the Southern Africa’s most diversified and fast-growing conglomerates. With tentacles in over 8 sectors, the group was shaped from a modest agribusiness company-involved in agriculture at the far-end of rural Malawi, Mzuzu. As they say, there are no accidental paths to success; the company’s fast-paced growth can be largely attributed to the founder and CEO Prophet Sheppard Bushiri. Fondly known as Major 1, the resilient entrepreneur surely had his success long foretold. At the age of 13, Young Bushiri had resolved not to play at the fringes, but to work hard and put his name on the global map – this is exactly what he is doing with his various businesses.

In an exclusive Interview with African Leadership Magazine, Mr. Bushiri talks about his businesses; his formative years in business, amongst other issues.  

You are obviously a young man, who is on a mission in business. How did it all start?

I began farming as a business in Malawi in 2009, I grew the business until I was able to buy a land in a strategic area of Tanzania that was known for its gold deposits. I bought the land, just a small piece of it because I wanted to go into mining. I was then appointed the president of AFRIK — an entity that provided loans to developing countries. AFRIK is an offshoot of National Standard Finance, infrastructure and sovereign finance organization that provided loans to African governments, which paid me commissions from transactions. From those commissions, I built my businesses.

By March of that year 2009, I begin looking for investors close to the land I had bought because next to it was a mine that was owned by the American government, and there were other mines close by, so I was so sure that it had gold. So I came to South Africa to look for investors. After surveys, we found out that indeed the land had gold. Although it was not much, what I had was enough. From there my business grew. The first company I built was in Dubai, providing consulting services and it is still doing very well.

I then moved to South Africa from there. Firstly, I purchased private jets for presidential travels. We are also into energy drink production, and also have a mine in Zambia —- the Emerald mine — of course, you know emerald is more expensive than gold. We are also into the hospitality sector where we operate hotels in Nairobi, Dubai, and other new acquisitions. We also have another business where we help industries to sell cars. I also run a mobile network company in South Africa, and it’s doing very well. We have over 5000 employees in all our business subsidiaries.

Some have argued that combining business and ministry is a distraction. As a preacher, how are you able to combine business and ministry?

I don’t work too hard in that sense, I have put in place systems, but that was what God helped me do. As an entrepreneur, you don’t work as hard as a business person because you think. I don’t work, systems do the work nicely.

When did your big break come?

The first day I had the idea to change my community and the world, that day was my big break. Being an entrepreneur, it is not about money. The idea and knowledge of what to do was my big break. I only had about US$3000, but I wanted to be a billionaire. The best thing in my business journey was the first day I had an idea, was the day I sat down to plan. My plan was to buy land, put electricity and water there automatically, the value will increase, and I will register with the city council and sell at a higher price.

Please tell us more about your businesses?

The SBI group has about 8 distinct businesses. We have the SB Consulting with its headquarters in Dubai, which is set up to advise investors seeking to invest in Africa. The SB Mining, which has an ongoing emerald mining operation in Zambia. We have the SB Hotels, which is the hospitality and tourism arm of the group and doing business in South Africa, Malawi, Kenya, and the United States. We currently operate the only five-star Hotel in Malawi. We have the Favour energy Drink, which is probably the only energy drink of African origin. We also have the SB Mobile, a mobile telecommunications company, currently operating in South Africa. It might also interest you to note that we operate a private jet chatter, exclusively for high-end users, with the hope of a much more commercial venture in future. We also have the Shepherd Bushiri University in South Africa. Some other businesses are still in the gestation stage and would be unveiled in due course.

What values have you built your business empire on?

The fear of God. I fear God so much. A person who fears God is not corrupt, he is honest. I am a person of boldness. My biggest principle has been taking the risk and managing the risk. Africa’s problem is not taking risks. It is about managing the risk. I have a strong team that is like a wall. And I tell them to hold on strongly — they are a very intelligent team.

Another factor is Capital Management which is the key thing. Many Africans don’t think about how to improve the business.

There is nothing called small capital, nothing started big. Everything started small. There is nothing called small money. Wealth management is very important. For us, the definition of wealth creation is about managing what we have. We invest in small things which can return money faster. Our system of wealth creation is to create wealth from anything that is on demand. We have a FOREX trading team of experts and we have made quite a lot of money there. These are the things that are very essential. They make us turn little money into big.

How can others who combine ministry and business go about this for optimum productivity?

As a prophet, I have undergone several attacks from the media, and people who oppose me as well as some government leaders, and only an investment or business approach, has made it possible to survive. This is because Africa is a huge investment theatre and many investors are coming in. Even in some remote areas, you can still do good business, but everyone concentrates on the towns. Anything you start in Africa has a business value, but we all are thinking of only buying and selling. Money is not in the town, money is in the villages, these are the people that must get things, the rich people in urban areas are already saturated. Most people having problems in Africa are only servicing an inflated society.

The fact that I am a prophet, most people are amazed at how focused I am on business. But I am like every other human being, If the ministry has needs, I have to help out, create jobs for the unemployed, and also help those who have nothing.

Africa has the potential to do continuously good business, but the key lies in the know-how and focus. So despite the corruption and other challenges in Africa, businesses can thrive if we adopt the right attitude.

Was any of your business an attempt at following the trends?

Actually, my businesses are classified into long-term businesses and exit businesses. That is there are businesses that I do for the long term, and there are others that I exit before the market gets exhausted.

We exit businesses because you don’t test the waters with your two feet, you spread the risks. Africa has a bright economic future. The economy of Africa rests on Tourism and Resources. When I look at where the world is going, if you do Tourism you are right, you cannot go wrong. Every economy is backed by its resource. There are things we know that if I put my money in, I won’t lose. I invest in things that won’t lose value. We project what will happen in the years to come. While diversifying, we structure it in a way that the investments will keep the money coming in. It is not about making money, it is about keeping money in things that appreciate in value and contribute to the community.

We are also currently working on a partnership with Liverpool FC to have our ENERGY drink as the official drink of the club.

How do you relax after a long haul of activities?

My body is now used to not sleeping long at nights. I normally sleep about three hours in the day. I personally go through everything to know what is happening in each department. You must have firsthand information. Most successful people do not rely on a manager’s report.

What legacy do you want to leave behind? What would you want to be remembered for?

I bring out love to the community. I don’t enjoy my worth at the expense of my work. A month ago, I bought over 20 cars for people who work for me and the church. Love for me is very vital. You can’t do charity and a lot of work without love. Particularly, I want to be remembered for love.

What inspires your giving, beyond the fact that you just want to give?

I am a faithful person, there is no other person that I look up to like Jesus Christ. As for me, I remember that Christ says give. And that inspires me to do something. Some time ago in Malawi, I called all the beggars on the street and gave just as Jesus gives.

For a man of your age and experience, what word do you have young entrepreneurs?

The biggest challenge is people pulling each other down. All the application that Africans create doesn’t become big. The giving up spirit is also another challenge. I began active business at 25, but the acumen had been there from the age of 13. I made my first US$3 million at the age of 25 and began to build from there. I have never come across as someone trying to give up. My strongest character is determined regardless of what difficulty I go through. That’s my message to Africa’s young entrepreneurs.

All of Africa is now competing for Chinese money. Except for one country.

As more than 40 African heads of state arrived at the China-Africa Cooperation summit Monday, one figure stood out: $60 billion. That’s how much additional funding Chinese President Xi Jinping promised the continent as the two-day summit got underway.

And all of Africa is competing for it — except for one country: Swaziland, an absolute monarchy that has in recent months renamed itself eSwatini.

The tiny kingdom was absent from this week’s Africa summit and appears to have no plans of attending anytime soon. It’s the last African nation that still recognizes Taiwan as an independent country, much to the dismay of the Chinese leadership in Beijing, which considers Taiwan to be a wayward province.

Swaziland Foreign Minister Mgwagwa Gamedze recently reemphasized the kingdom’s commitment to Taiwan, warning China that Beijing “must not play mind games because our relationship with Taiwan is over 50 years so we will not dump them . . . We have no desire to change camps since Taiwan has been good to us.”

China has halfheartedly rejected Swaziland’s criticism, with Beijing’s Africa envoy, Xu Jinghu, recently saying that “on this issue we won’t exert any pressure. We’ll wait for the time to be right . . . I believe this day will come sooner or later.”

The kingdom is now the only remaining African ally of Taiwan and belongs to an increasingly small pool of supporters worldwide, as China has stepped up international pressure to switch allegiances. When dealing with China and Taiwan, foreign countries have to choose between the two, as Beijing is refusing to establish diplomatic ties with nations that recognize Taiwan’s independence.

China has pushed aggressively into Africa over the past 10 years, surpassing the United States in total trade volume in 2009 and funding with loans of more than $86 billion for infrastructure and other projects across the continent between 2000 and 2014 — even before the latest offer in Beijing that would significantly increase annual lending. In many cases, China has tied those investments to political commitments.

Beijing denies using financial aid to persuade nations to cut ties with Taiwan, but the Dominican Republic said in May that it switched allegiances to accept $3.1 billion in loans from China. Burkina Faso followed only days later. And after El Salvador severed ties to Taiwan in August, Taipei said the Central American country had previously asked for an “astronomical sum” in aid. More recently, major U.S. airlines bowed to Chinese demands to list Taiwan as part of China, amid the possibility of Chinese state-sanctioned boycotts.

So, why is the kingdom of Swaziland Taiwan’s last holdout in Africa? There’s mainly one reason: King Mswati III, who has ruled the country as an absolute monarch for more than 32 years and gained a reputation for enriching himself and his allies, even as his population suffers under some of the worst poverty rates in the world. Life expectancy in the kingdom has declined by 12 years over the past two decades. To escape, some Swaziland residents have fled to neighboring South Africa, where they work in mines, of which a growing number are funded by the Chinese.

While Chinese investment in Africa has triggered criticism over fears that Beijing may exploit the continent or woo nations into a “debt trap,” Mswati’s critics have wistfully observed how the funding has at least for now resulted in growth and employment elsewhere.

Taiwan may regularly accuse China of using money to purchase loyalty, but to preserve the few international friends it still has, it has similarly invested into local infrastructure projects or established scholarships in Swaziland. Mswati has returned the favor by visiting Taiwan 17 times so far. The Swaziland leader is now able to reach Taipei on a nonstop flight, after he expanded his collection of expensive luxury toys by purchasing a new Airbus A340-400 from Taiwan this summer.

In Swaziland, Taiwan may have found a loyal supporter — at least as long as it’s willing to back a leader with a long list of enemies and no interest in flying nonstop to Beijing.
