2. "The #BRI Status: A Grand Report on Its Present and Future" sheds light on numerous challenges faced by BRI like:
cost overruns,
environmental damage,
funding issues,
repeated delays,
lack of progress,
and poor quality of development.
@Santos4Congress Image
3. According to our investigation, 62.8% of the countries that have joined the #BRI are #developing countries, while around 17% are #developed countries.

This suggests that the BRI is primarily focused on developing countries.

Long Thread:

China's “Pearl of Strings" Vs Bharat's “Diamond Necklace"!

Modern day wars are not to conquer Land Parcels, but to control Trade & Economies!

#China was lucky to be given a Free Hand by #UPA govt of CONgress which literally slept over Strategic Issues.

#China increased it's presence in Indian Ocean rampantly till 2014 through its Debt Trap Diplomacy to suit it's #StringsOfPearls strategy to contain Bharat's hold in Indian Ocean.

It created a ring around Bharat through strategically placed Nations.

How was it being done?

Via debt-trap policy! China lured strategically located nations around #Bharat to borrow Infra Loans. Once indebted, #China pressurized them to support its Geostrategic interests. This way, China got Control over Chittagong
(Bangladesh),Karachi &Gwadar Port(Pakistan) and...

#MarburgVirus Ausbruch in #Tanzania - ein paar Fakten zur Einordnung: Das Marburgvirus gehört zur Familie der Filoviren, zu denen auch Ebola gehört. Es löst im Menschen ein schweres Krankheitsbild aus, an ca. 50% Infizierten verstirbt, bei manchen Ausbrüchen auch mehr (bis 88%).
Der Name kommt tatsächlich von der Stadt Marburg/Hessen, wo in den 60er Jahren das Virus erstmals entdeckt wurde. Es kam dort zu einem Ausbruch unter Labormitarbeitern (auch in Frankfurt & Belgrad), die infizierte Affen aus Uganda als Versuchstiere erhalten hatten.
Seitdem beobachtet man regelmäßig Ausbrüche in Afrika. Das Reservoir des Virus sind Nilflughunde, die damit infiziert sind, selbst nicht krank werden, aber das Virus ausscheiden. Menschen infizieren sich idR in Höhlen (Minen für Gold, Rohstoffe), in denen die Tiere schlafen

November 20 in the #History of #Eritrea.
1. On Nov. 20 1989, #EPLF & the #Ethiopian gov/Derg began peace talks in #Nairobi, #Kenya under the auspices of @CarterCenter & by the invitation of President Arap Moi of Kenya. The peace talks lasted until November 29.
2. At Nairobi Peace talks, they agreed on 3 issues that weren't agreed upon in #Atlanta, cleared the way for substantive negotiations, agreed to invite ex #Tanzanian Pres. Nyerere to be co-host wz Carter during the main talks & the 2 agreed to choose the sec & support staff.
3. The most difficult issue that the Parties discussed & finally agreed was "who would serve as int'l observer" during the main talks. 7 observers, 2 by each Party & 3 by mutual consent. #Kenya, #Sudan, #Tanzania, #OAU, #Zimbabwe & #Senegal were invited & accepted the invitation

1)How does a #rebellion start?Where do they get funds?One missile shot can cost as much as 1 million$!#Rebels & #superpowers sit down & bargain!Rebels wants to get in power & superpowers wants to #loot your country's #natural #resources almost for free!Then #contracts are signed!
2)Right now were are talking about #M23!Obviously they already signed contracts with superpowers to loot Congo's natural resources freely. Congo to defend itself is also obliged to sign contracts to sell its resources to get funds for war. So M23 is pushing Congo into slavery!
3)Many times #rebels can sign #contracts to invade neighboring countries in the future!When you see a war in your neighboring country, be careful,you don't know where it will end to!As you watch #African #wars on #TVs,better know rebels may have actually sold all of you!Trust me!

1)Do people know the war in Congo 🇨🇩 is directly related to the war in Ethiopia 🇪🇹 ? On the picture is Meles Zenawi, the president of Ethiopia until 2012! He was a Tigray by tribe and an ally of Kagame and Museveni in their Hima Tutsi Empire project! Zenawi was recruited into it! Image
2)When Abiy Mohamed became the prime minister of Ethiopia from Oromo tribe,Kagame,Museveni and their sponsors became frustrated. The empire they were building was based on the agreement with Tigrayans.That's why obviously they have been supporting Tigray war against Abiy govt! Image
3)When there was a #coup in #Burundi against Peter Nkurunziza,it was an effort to bring Back Pierre #Buyoya,former president,who was with them in their thirsty to build an empire in the region!The coup failed,#Tanzania knew their games and supported #Nkurunziza back on power! Image

East African leaders have agreed to assemble troops to combat armed groups in the eastern Democratic Republic of #Congo #DRC.

What is this joint force and what are its objectives?

@PMvandeWalle takes a close look in our latest Q&A.

[Thread] 🧵👇…
The East African Community (EAC) @jumuiya is composed of #DRCongo 🇨🇩, #Tanzania 🇹🇿, #Kenya 🇰🇪, #Burundi 🇧🇮, #Rwanda 🇷🇼, #SouthSudan 🇸🇸 & #Uganda 🇺🇬.

The EAC’s joint force was designed to respond to the rampant insecurity in eastern DRC, a serious concern for the entire region.
Cyclic violence, displacement and insecurity due to the presence of armed groups has been plaguing the region for almost 30 years.

Yet an actual deployment of a regional force is unprecedented.…

Breaking: In an embarrassment for #PatriceMotsepe, the @CAF_Online President, @SAFPU_Official, #SouthAfrica’s Players Union, declare their strong opposition to CAF’s plan for an #AfricanSuperLeague, which will be put before the CAF congress in #Arusha, #Tanzania on August 10th.
In a separate discussion I had with a top executive of @AlAhly @AlAhlyEnglish on Friday, he told me @CAF_Online was yet to give his club “concrete details” of how the Super League proposal will work.
“We were invited to #Cameroon for the last #AFCON, where the preliminary plan for the #AfricanSuperLeague was put to us & selected clubs from across the continent. But no concrete details, on the finances and other important details, have been given, up till now.”

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

23authors|9sectors|17739 literature|countless meetings

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

#Tanzania⚡️Katika hatua za kuboresha Mfumo wa Haki Jinai nchini Mhe. @SuluhuSamia amefanya mabadiliko ndani ya Jeshi la Polisi (@tanpol) nchini kwa kumteua aliyekua Kamishna wa Polisi Camillus Wambura kuwa Inspekta Jenerali na Mkuu mpya wa Jeshi la polisi nchini (IGP).
IGP Wambura anachukua nafasi ya IGP- Sirro (mstaafu) ambaye ameteteuliwa kuwa Balozi nchini Zimbabwe.
Moja ya jukumu kubwa la IGP Wambura no kuigeuza taswira ya @tanpol na kuhakikisha Jeshi la Polisi nchini linabaki kuwa kiungo muhimu cha kulinda Haki, Ulinzi na usalama wa raia.
IGP Camilius Wambura kitaaluma na kiutendaji ni mpelelezi aliyebobea, pia ana weledi katika nyanja ya upelelezi, ni mara chache sana kusikikia malalamiko kwenye kazi ya upepelezi ya aliyekuwa Kamishna Wambura (IGP).
Tunategemea IGP -Wambura ataendelea kusimamia Haki na Weledi.

46 years ago today, on July 4, 1976, elite Israeli forces flew over 3,218kms & rescued hostages in the “Entebbe Raid”. It set off a series of events that eventually ended Uganda military dictator Idi #Amin’s rule in April 1976 #EntebbeRaid #1
The mostly-Israeli hostages were on board an Air France Airbus A300 airliner with 248 passengers that was hijacked June 27 by Palestinian militants. During the rescue, the Israelis destroyed most of Amin's Airforce planes – barely 3kms away was Amin’s State House #EntebbeRaid #2
A wounded and humiliated Amin lashed out. A new long bout of killings, including of the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Janani Luwum in February 1977, started. After the attack #Amin upped his threats against Kenya, from where the Israelis had refueled #EntebbeRaid #3
