1. #Angola gov making reform progress but still much to do if debt risks to be contained. Some necessary reforms unpopular & risk of pushing too hard as economy recovery fragile. Need time to shift economy from oil & to jobs but time not on Angola’s side. Recent trip thread 1/10
2. Key areas reform for investors to watch 1/ FX. 2/ Balancing budget & stabilising debt. 3/ Privatisation program. Each important to gov & for keeping $3.7bn IMF program on-track (crucial for eurobond investors & China’s exposure). S&P has #Angola on a B- rating with neg outlook
3. FX big hurdle to non-oil business. Depreciation since devaluation. More market-based allocation but hard to get letter of credit needed to access FX (most firms import inputs). Official & parallel rate gap had narrowed but recently widened. Now official AOA364/$, parallel=~535

Judges in #Kenya have postponed a long-awaited landmark ruling to strike out colonial-era legislation and decriminalize same-sex relations.
The judgment will now be given in late May. amp.theguardian.com/global-develop… #LGBTQ 🌈
The High Court said it needed more time to consider the evidence.
The delay prompted anger and disappointment among campaigners. “I just wish the excuse was better. People’s lives are hanging on the line. Justice has been delayed, but it has not yet been denied,”said Yvonne Oduor
Frank Mugisha, a campaigner for gay rights in #Uganda, said before the ruling that a positive result would encourage other countries to follow #Kenya’s path. #Angola recently decriminalised homosexual sex and courts in #Botswana will decide on the issue next month. #LGBTQ

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...
