WHO will sign a non-disclosure agreement with #Madagascar on the herbal treatment formulation.
But why is it that they are more interested in how its made if they said there is no proof it works?
#Africa should protect its traditional medicine technology.

Here is the thing: as an African, i am drawn between the horns of a dilemma. Europeans want me to denounce my birthright and sell my country for 20 pieces of silver. My own African leaders want me to accept the corrupt status quo by cornering me into docility &

political oblivion, where any question i ask is interpreted to be an act rebellion meant to agitate the masses against them and cause alarm and despondency.

Africa Is Not Waiting to Be Saved From the Coronavirus
If reporting doesn’t improve, the creativity and agency of swaths of humanity will be lost to history

We needed this article to be written for months. Thank you @Nanjala1-I share some of ur pearls 🧵…
"As #Covid19 races its way across #Africa, there are 2 stories happening at once. 1st t is of governments using their armies and militarized police to beat, threaten, and shoot their way to #publichealth."
"2nd is of communities knitting together their meager resources to fill..
"the gap of absent states...of tailors across informal settlements in Nairobi & Mombasa sewing face masks out of scrap fabric & handing them out for free after price gouging by commercial suppliers."

Africa's 1st #nobel laureate Wole Soyinka explains how the church created the African version of the devil from the Orisha God Eshu. #distortion #destruction #violence of Xtianity.
Watch the SELL-OUT #ricebag or #cassavabag priest on the right with no AFRICAN pride
This is the majestic Eshu of the Orisha religion who became the devil in Africa. SOUND familiar? Ma Kaali has this unique designation as well.Tried and true methods

Out today: Our new @TheLancet analysis of #ethics & #politics of #access to #testing #PPE & #Covid19 treatment. We must act now so to ensure that geopolitically powerful countries apply ethical standards & coordinate their procurement to access for #LMICs…
Many #African health systems lack capacity to respond if #COVID19 outbreaks get out of control. So #testing & #tracing are particularly vital.

Unfortunately, testing supplies are increasingly scarce, as #NorthAmerican & #European countries snap up everything on the market.
This mirrors failures in the #AIDS response—when testing & treatment came to #Africa years after it arrived in #US & #Europe, and long after the #pandemic had taken hold. This resulted in tens of millions of unnecessary deaths. @chidodc @DrWilfredoM @RenzoGuinto @paimadhu

It's amazing that when Bill Clinton was president, #Americans seemed to know that "all politicians are corrupt". Clinton was followed by Bush jr, who lied us into wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that we're still involved in and oversaw (at the time) the greatest transfer of ... 1/5
wealth to the top in history. Bush was followed by a president who oversaw an even greater wealth transfer to the top, and pushed climate change to the precipice with the expansion of fracking and who began FIVE for-profit wars, including the destruction of #Libya, which ... 2/5
went from the greatest standard of living in #Africa to open-air slave markets. But somehow tens of millions of Americans now believe that "their team" is somehow not corrupt and any proof to the contrary is fake news, partisan propaganda or (laughably) #Russian propaganda. 3/5

I was writing a rebuttal to Dr Grum’s article “The Case for GMOs” @Ethiobserver . But I have to break my silence as some people, out of their utter ignorance, are relentlessly making ad hominem attacks on #GMO opponents. #Ethiopia
You can search “@kebyes GMO” so that you will learn how enthusiastic I am about the issue. Unlike others who are bashing every opinion/evidence, I like to ask questions first. That is how you learn. So please ask before resorting to attacks, PEOPLE. #Ethiopia

If the western leaders and their big corporate partners believe that Africa is still that primitive, archaic continent of our forefathers they used to step on... they have another thing coming.

#Madagascar #day37oflockdown #MadagascarMedicine
There is a new generation of "wokeness" that is not going to tolerate arrogant, snobbish, hypocritical, pea-minded and self-serving pretenders who enter the world with superior airs of "holier-than-thou", "we and them" attitude
calling themselves Donors, Philanthropist or any title to distance themselves to other ordinary folks whom they look down on. Africa is woke! Africa is taking the front seat!✊

OPINION BY SIMON KOLAWOLE: Is it time to lift the lockdown? | TheCable

Perhaps the biggest COVID-19 debate in Nigeria today is: should the lockdown be lifted? Residents of Lagos state and the federal capital territory (FCT) have been under a lockdown since March 30. The aim is to slow the spread of the virus by limiting public interactions. #COVID19
The night the lockdown started, @NCDCgov reported a total of 131 confirmed cases and two deaths. There were 81 cases in Lagos, 25 in FCT and three in Ogun. As of Friday, almost four weeks later, total confirmed cases had gone up to 1,095, with 32 deaths and 208 discharged.

Last year, my colleagues and I stood before
our peers, faculty, and DFW investors, lecturing on the dangers an expansionist CCP posed to the world.
These threats have already begun to manifest themselves.

Full analysis in thread.
#China #CCPChina #CCPLiedPeopleDied #SLOC #OSINT
China’s state-owned and state-backed ventures, including State-Owned Enterprises (SOE), regional banks, and the People’s Bank of China (#PBOC) have created an ecosystem of interdependence within the Chinese economy that has skyrocketed China’s GDP over the last several decades...
#China has been the fastest growing economy in the world, w/annual growth rate of ~10%.

However, >quarter of GDP is direct SOEs, & 2/3 is funded by State-Owned Banks (SOB), which are funded by the PBOC.
With avg debt-to-asset ratio in Q119 @ 65.7%, There is a #disaster brewing.

For International #WorldHeritageDay, a thread about the threat of climate change to these incredible places. Starting off at the Heart of Neolithic #Orkney World Heritage site in #Scotland at one of the world's oldest stone circles, #StonesOfStenness.
Skara Brae at the edge of Skaill Bay on Mainland, Orkney is, one of the best preserved Stone Age villages in Europe but is increasingly under threat from coastal erosion and worsening storms, & the Ring of Brodgar is vulnerable to extreme rainfall.

#Islam #Muslims Let me tell you an interesting story today! SubhanAllah! Allah SWT works in different ways! In US there are many organizations who r working towards making people aware what real Islam is & for better understanding between communities of different faith like, 1/n
Christians, Jews, and many more. This was very Important step since after 9/11 tragedy many were wondering what #Islam is and why would #Muslims hate Americans (That’s no true) so many interfaith groups were started, and #DiscoverIslam was started to 2/N
This helped a lot in building bridges in between communities and opened up the opportunity for world to understand what real #Islam is because like in #India there are hate groups against #Muslims everywhere, there is a toll free number, people can call & ask questions about 3/N

March 17 2020: "#Gates has proved there is a far easier path to political power, one that allows unelected billionaires to shape public policy in ways that almost always generate favorable headlines: #charity."
"Describing his approach by turns as "creative capitalism" and “catalytic philanthropy," Gates oversaw a shift at his foundation to leverage "all the tools of #capitalism" to "connect the promise of #philanthropy with the power of private enterprise."

#Microsoft #Pharma
The #Gates Foundation has made over the last two decades, ...close to $2 billion in tax-deductible charitable donations to private companies—including some of the largest businesses in the world, such as #GlaxoSmithKline, #Unilever, #IBM, & #NBC Universal #Media."

If you are #blackAF then you need to see what blacks are going through in China.
They are trying to deflect by blaming the black traders in the south of the country as being responsible for a growing second wave of coronavirus cases.
Even the local MacDonald's put up a sign saying No Blacks allowed. MacDees has since apologised...but they were only obeying the government

Using #SolarDryers to dehydrate #cassava and increase its shelf-life to enable producers hold their harvest and sell only during peak demand to maximize earnings. With this, we have mitigation investments of clean energy, tied to power adaptation through value added agro-systems
For example, raw #cassava converted to dry cassava using #solardryers, and this dried cassava milled to cassava flour – a finished product - using decentralized solar has been proven to increase incomes by 150% relative to cassava that is sold raw after harvesting.
This addresses the key sources of vulnerability – which is the low levels of socioeconomic growth. #Cleanenergy and #agriculture are prioritized in over 70% of Nationally Determined Contributions #NDCs in #Africa. #EBAFOSA #InnovativeVolunteerism @ebafosaa
