In Africa there are 54 countries , each one of them with unique architecture and design that represent the cultural identity and history of the people.

54 days , 54 projects one for every African nation .

I’ll start with Morocco I’ll ended in western sahara.

Enjoy Image
Day 1.

Morocco .

This 18th-Century Home renovated in the historical center of Essaouira it is an incredible example of traditional Moroccan architecture .

A traditional house renovated and decorated with a contemporary touch.

Between tradition and modernity. ImageImageImageImage
Designed by the French painter Jacques Majorelle the garden was created over the course of forty years, and consists of a labyrinth of crisscrossing alleyways on different levels and boldly-coloured buildings that blend both Art Deco and Moorish influences.

An hidden beauty ImageImageImageImage

1) CAR elections : preliminary lessons learned.

Thread (first part today, second part tomorrow)
2) #Touadera could be the biggest winner of the elections. Firstly, he will likely be reelected. Secondly, the recent events have weakened the opposition coalition #COD2020. Their failure to denounce #Bozize, when it became clear he was preparing a coup, eroded their reputation
3) #Russia, #Rwanda, #Portugal & #MINUSCA are among international winners.

# In only 3 weeks #MINUSCA & #Russia, whose reputations among the citizen were not always positive, have reversed those perceptions, at least for now.

# France on the contrary has it's back to the wall

Dont only Boycott the #French for what they have done previously, but also Boycott them on the behalf of the innocents they have brutally slaughtered in their genocide in Africa
As you might know my previous tweets have got deleted by Twitter as they were too "gore" so you can find the videos and pictures on my telegram…

#ISIS has released the anticipated audio recording featuring its top spokesman Abu Hamza al-Qurashi, titled, “So Narrate [to them] Stories [of the past] so Perhaps They Will Reflect.”
Abu Hamza criticizes Islamic scholars who “misguide” people and preach against #ISIS, saying that they’ll “regret” supporting “tyrants” while they condemn the mujahideen. Typical stuff here.
Abu Hamza condemns the recent peace accords between Israel and UAE and Bahrain, as well as Saudi Arabia opening air space, refuting old conspiracies about #ISIS being a creation of Israel.

In my column in today's @BusinessDayNg, I attempt to show how #Nigeria's many insecurity issues have an economic cost.

Look at it this way, #BokoHaram started at about the time the Niger Delta militancy were getting their amnesty.
A decade after, we are still paying amnesty to creek boys, and #Nigeria’s numerous internal security crises have intensified.

In pretty much all geopolitical zones of the country we are seeing rising violence, often challenging the Nigerian state for territorial control. Image
Kidnap for ransom is now a full business venture aided by lots of ungoverned spaces.

Sambisa Forest is a good example of how this violence affects the economy...

Carl T. Bergstrom on Twitter--My interview with Tim Adams in The Guardian

Less than 2 weeks ago, the top cop—and top #Chad—in Riverside County, @SheriffBianco, was telling the Board of Supervisors that "it's not your job to tell me what to do" when it comes to ensuring that the @RSO is held accountable to the public for violence committed by deputies.
In May, Bianco passed himself off simultaneously as an expert on #pandemics and a constitutional scholar when instructing the Board of Supervisors to ignore guidelines from the Riverside County #publichealth officer and California Governor @GavinNewsom.
#LawEnforcement isn't Chad Bianco's only job: he doubles as the county coroner, which it turns out is problematic. Two Fridays ago, he again told the Board of Supervisors that he rejected oversight efforts— even though he knew how a man had been killed in @RSO custody in 2017.

#PequeñosGrandesHeroes, Capítulo 3️⃣

En esta edición volvemos a cambiar de continente. Estamos en #Africa 🌍 para hablar de un seleccionado que hizo historia en el 2006, #Angola 🇦🇴. Este es un relato triunfal en medio de tantas desgracias. Image
Angola es una nación relativamente joven, ya que se independizó de #Portugal 🇵🇹 en 1975. Si bien es un país rico en yacimientos minerales y petrolíferos, no pudieron disfrutar de los beneficios de esto ya que la guerra civil los atrapó y los hundió en la miseria. Image
La guerra acabaría recién en el 2002, aunque sus secuelas quedarán por siempre en todos aquellos que la han vivido, sea por combatir como por haber perdido a algún ser querido. De hecho, los jugadores de esta historia no quedarían exentos de este dolor... Image

The recent arrest of @MubarakBala has brought a lot of recrimination on social media, has put a lot of Muslims in #Nigeria on the defensive, and has, again, brought up the accusation of religious fanaticism.
FTR, I do not agree that anyone should die for blasphemy, and the Holy Quran seems to agree that the way to deal with blasphemy is to shun such people until they begin to talk of other things, and not to kill them.
About 20 years ago I used to live at 6/23 Nnobi Street, Kilo, Surulere.

At the time, it was a nice place, with the landlord in the upstairs flat facing the road, me at the back upstairs, Idowu downstairs in the flat below me, and Franca Fashions, downstairs, facing the road.

"The Lancet‘s fraudulent concealment of genetics, and its own conflicting interests, while condemning #coronavirus conspiracy theorists, gives the appearance of “crisis capitalism,” and complicity in the COVID-19-SARS/HIV-1 #Wuhan ‘Event 201‘ biocrime." Image
The 'Scientific' arguments going on behind the scenes on #Covid_19 should be a wake-up call to the 'TRUE' dangers the world is being exposed to! 'BOTH' sides of the argument are labelling the other 'Conspiracy Theorists'. Only one of them can be! Image
The Lancet writes that "Conspiracy theories do nothing but create fear, rumours, and prejudice...." #Covid_19 Image

#ToiletPaperPanic #ToiletPaperApocalypse #COVIDー19

Apparently, here in #Europe toilet paper is a symbol of preparedness & safety. Fear is very contagious.

By the way, I remember when I was in #Chad during #HepatitisE outbreak & we had shortage of clean drinking water. Image
#COVIDー19 @ParisAeroport is still open but a lot of travel restrictions & flights cancelled. For EU privileged citizens, the virus means the end of borderless travel. ImageImage
Less than 30 passengers on this @AerLingus flight. People wearing masks, wiping everything down frantically when they get on the plane. No in-flight food & retail services on board. Hostess worried flights will stop/reduce very soon.

This thread is inspired by the conversation I'm involved in with @cchukudebelu, @dondee_don and a few others.

Will #Nigeria break up? Maybe. But it will be very messy as there are issues that need sorting, and they are, well, difficult...
The first thing is to understand the place of geography in determining how people behave, and how it shapes their interactions with the world.

I have given this presentation many times. I always start with this map...
You see, #Russia may be the largest country by area, but geography has dealt them a bad hand in terms of location. Asides the Crimea (Azov) all of Russia's ports are located in areas that are frozen for a good portion of the year.

Since sea trade is vital, the Crimea IS vital.

[Thread #migration #Niger]

Two years ago, UNHCR established for the 1st time an Emergency Evacuation Transit Mechanism (ETM) for the evacuation of #refugees from detention in #Libya to #Niger.

The full agreement between UNHCR & Niger is available here:… ImageImageImageImage
Since 2017, more than 2,900 refugees and asylum-seekers have been evacuated to #Niger, but while EU has promised to provide safe pathways & EU countries have agreed to host them, the resettlement promises are not respected. Image
By August, only 59 %, (1,723 people) have been resettled, but what will happen to those that do not meet resettlement requirements remains unclear.

Without access to resettlement these people are left in a limbo rather than with a sustainable solution.
