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.

1🧵A developing story of multiple outbreaks of #MarburgVirus in Equatorial Guinea, and Tanzania in Africa occurring over the last few weeks. Marburg is rare but holds a 88-90% fatality rate according to the reports coming out of the area. ImageImageImageImage
2🧵What I found most concerning was the particular locations of the outbreaks and their proximity to BSL-3 & BSL-4 Laboratories in Africa. While zoonotic spillover is possible, lab leaks do occur and so far there is no theory or evidence suggesting a natural host. ImageImageImage
3🧵What was even MORE concerning was the map of where Metabiota had confirmed locations of operations. Although most think Metabiota is long gone, think again. Metabiota joined #HEADA, in #Cameroon, Sierra Leone, and the Democratic Congo. ImageImageImageImage

Something different, something light to wrap up 2022. A thread on #Cameroon urban music with a focus on some popular and not so popular albums and EPs that caught my attention. Listed in no particular order. #music #Recap2022 #afrobeats
South Africa-based @iam_ajoh's EP, "Miracle" has been described as "a vibrant body of work” in which various musical genres “are seamlessly fused to create a unique soundscape of instrumentals & soulful lyricism." Check out hit song, Mr. Mago Mago… (1/25)
After numerous EPs, @awusingsong steps up his game with his first album that masterfully blends Makossa with Afrobeats, Soukouss, and other genres to produce what he describes as “Kosa-fusion.”… (2/25

9 months ago today #Russia decided to break international law and condemn hundreds of thousands to death, disability and destruction

It's Day 274 of the invasion of #Ukraine, and here's Thursday's daily thread with all the news

Yesterday's news is here:
When the elite becomes diluted...

#Russia's crack airborne units couldn't defend the right bank of #Kherson - will they fare better in #Donbas where #Ukraine cannot target supply lines as easily.

Here's the UK Intel report for Thursday:
Early, unconfirmed, reports of a strike by #Russia in #Kherson

A rocket landed in the courtyard of one of the high-rise buildings in the city, but no reports of injuries.

As a follow-up to my article on the #WorldCup2022 for @PillarCatholic, a couple of notes on religious aspects of this tournament.…
1. This is the first time the World Cup is being played in a Muslim country, and only the second outside of the traditionally Christian world. The first was South Korea & Japan in 2002.
2. 2002 also marked the furthest a traditionally Muslim country ever progressed in the World Cup, with #Turkey placing 3rd, after beating South Korea in a very exciting game.

1/29. 📜NEW BRIEF: Today we launch “PASSED THE POINT OF NO RETURN: A Non-Economic #LossAndDamage (#NELD) Explainer” covering what #NELD is, why and how it happens, where it happens, who is most affected, and importantly, how we can respond.

🔗Get it here:…
2/29. The brief begins with a foreword by @UNFCCC NELs Expert Group Member @IrfanUllahCDO, who highlights that Non-Economic #LossAndDamage has been largely overlooked in climate negotiations and that urgent action is needed to address #NELD happening now e.g. The #PakistanFloods.
3/29. Then @DLodry of @LossDamageYouth shares the powerful story of his lived experience of Non-Economic #LossAndDamage in #Cameroon called "The Tears Of A Village River And Its Population" which tells how climate-intensified #Drought can lead to a loss of #Culture and #Identity.

Now in #UNGA, vote to join UN "Human Rights" Council on which China & #Cameroon sit. Only 2 competitions: LatAm & Caribbean: #Chile, #CostaRica & #Venezuela (3 for 2 seats); Asia: #Afghanistan, #Bangladesh, #Kyrgyzstan, #Maldives, #Korea, #Vietnam (6 for 4 seats)
Already, it is exposed that candidates are handing out gifts (bribes) at the doorway of #UNGA. The UN is ever more corrupt under @antonioguterres - Inner City Press used to live stream this bribery, until Guterres had it thrown out…
It's Singapore, asking @UN_PGA @Csaba_Korosi_ to do his job and stop the bribery in #UNGA. Doubt he will - he has adopted @antonioguterres' censorship of Press, so why not this? Now, after gifts given, Korosi says he's shocked, like in Casablanca

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.”

I love history, and #Cameroon history was my favourite at College.
Here are five reasons how the #USA and #NATO wrote the history/rule book that #Russia used to invade #Ukriane:
1. Invade another country on the basis of protecting a people from bloodshed and ethnic cleansing, i.e. #Albanians – NATO and the 1999 Kosovo war. Russia claims to protect the people of #Donbass and #Luhansk. A report on the war cited this about NATO intervention:
“The Commission concludes that the NATO military intervention was illegal but legitimate. It was illegal because it did not receive prior approval from the United Nations Security Council”. Read more on the report:…

The number of 👥 in need in Burkina Faso, Northern Cameroon,Chad,Mali,Niger, and North-Eastern Nigeria 📈 from 24M in 2018 to over 30M in 2022 due to the combined effect of:
🚨 increasingly violent conflicts

🚨 climate change
🚨 unprecedented food insecurity Image
@OMSNiger @WHONigeria @OMS_Burkina @whocmr @omsmali @OMS_Afrique @unis_sahel @UN_UNOWAS Only less than half of the 2021 humanitarian appeal for the Sahel was funded.

Despite this, WHO and partners continued to work in the Sahel region to prevent the humanitarian situation from getting worse.

#Somaliland and #Taiwan: The benefits


1/14. S/land and Taiwan have a lot in common such as both being a fully functioning democracies with volatile neighbours. Both are striving for international recognition and will not budge to threats or diplomatic pressure. Image
2/14. Somaliland brings a lot to the table. S/land’s strategic location in the Horn of Africa will give Taiwan a gateway into East Africa and beyond. Landlocked countries in Africa can benefit from this diplomatic move such as Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Uganda.
3/14. S/land will give Taiwan an important access to the Gulf of Berbera (Gulf Aden) where access to the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the world can be established which will boost Taiwan’s export opportunities as well as a chance to make new friends in the region.
