Another example of how we know that decisions made by unis are not exactly data driven particularly as this decision borders on discrimination (what does “quality students” even mean?!). Interestingly, this initial deposit was €1.5K before it was reduced due to the #Covid19. Image
#Nigeria & #Cameroon are the top two countries in Africa with students in N.Cyprus. However, look again, Cameroon is nowhere close to Nigeria. So what happened to all the other countries in-between? Are they all “quality” and how was the measured?
The real issue is intl students getting stuck/ stranded/ trafficked to N.Cyprus and being unable to pay fees but this policy doesn’t solve that problem. It merely discriminates against the two biggest markets in Africa- which is nonsense.

France has donated equipment to the Gendarmerie of #Cameroon, including a DJI Phantom drone, JG Airsoft AK-rifles (training), body armour, and other materials. #AnglophoneCrisis
Additional images. You can read more about it here: facebook.com/67068415005952…
Before anyone gets too excited about the rifles, they are literally replica 'airsoft' rifles that fire plastic pellets. Probably made by Jing Gong or an equivalent Chinese factory. You can buy them for $100-$140.

Now speechifying before taking hand-picked questions, it's the sixth French head of UN Peacekeeping in a row, @LaCroix_UN - who has colluded in not answering a single Inner City Press question about the cases of sexual abuse by his peacekeepers. #honte
"Hand-picked" questions meant just that: @UN_Spokesperson @StephDujarric, who yesterday again said English is not his first language, said @LaCroix_UN time is limited then picked first two questioners in French. #FrancAfrique. Nothing on #Cameroon troops' abuses
Both French questioners are given follow ups by UN_Spokesperson @StephDujarric (who has banned Inner City Press from the briefing and refuses all of its written Qs) - neither ask about UN Peacekeepers' sexual abuse cases, which have expanded under @AntonioGuterres

#CentralAfricanRepublic (THREAD)

1) 200 to 300 rebels attacked the capital #Bangui today (PK9, PK11, PK12 & Bimbo areas).

Govt, #Russian & #Rwandan troops repelled them. But the rebels remain in the hills & areas surroundings the capital.

Read @CrisisGroup statement 👇
2) The rebels were generally equipped or light weapons (including #AK47 & grenades), several #RPG & probably mortars.

No report of the casualties yet.
3) It's unlikely that they really wanted to size the capital, if not they would have come in bigger number.

They seem to be trying to isolate the capital from the rest of the country that they already control largely & install an attrition warfare just at the capital doors.

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

Why The West Want Sub-Sahara Africa To Stay Poor.

Fellow Africans, Howard Nicholas is not your enemy, he's actually your friend.
He's bold enough to tell you to stop being #SlavesByChoice

Your NGOs, CSOs, Journalists in collaboration with @cnni etc are used to destabilize YOU!
Your raw materials in #Nigeria, #Congo, #Cameroon, #Ghana, #Rwanda etc is the simple target.

They send funds to those among you running NGOs/CSOs, make those ones #SlavesByChoice so as to keep you all ENSLAVED.
Your underdevelopment is caused by "colonization", OK.
By now you are being recolonized in a new way. This time around, it is #SlavesByChoice. Some Nigerians talking about Ghana & applauding them didn't even know that Ghana has lost of of their villages to the Western Country.

1/ Almost 2 years after launching in Cameroon, @SMECreditPro has made very little progress locally.

The Non-Performing Loan in Cameroon is ~14%, one of the highest (if not the highest) in SSA.

Banks are not lending to MSMEs and less thank 5% of SMEs get access to finance.
2/ the SME credit gap in Cameroon is ~$8 Billion.

Despite these, we have seen reluctance in adopting a solution that can help ease the situation.

Culture seems to play a big role in all of this. There is lack of transparency in the #cameroon banking industry.
3/ it is not clear how credit files are evaluated and/or why a loan file is rejected. "Black Box" still exist. The industry practice collateral based lending which has lucked millions out of the formal banking sector. This has also led to fraud as there is no collateral registry.
