Exciting news 🎉 Ghana is the first country to approve the use of a new malaria vaccine developed by Oxford University 🎉

This is an epic step forward in the fight against the disease. Here’s what you should know👇 [Thread]
Malaria is a major health threat in Africa, with over 90% of all cases and deaths occurring on the continent (@WHO). #Ghana has been working hard to combat the disease, and this approval brings the country one step closer to defeating it.
The vaccine was developed by scientists at the @UniofOxford, and so far has shown to be up to 77% effective in early trials. However, more testing still needs to be done to determine its effectiveness in a larger population.

Il est normal que la livraison d'armes de la #CIV225 à son voisin le #Burkina 🇧🇫 suscite des débats dans ces 2 pays et ailleurs. J'ai vu certains dire qu'il faut remercier @AOuattara_PRCI. D'autres disent que c'est tout simplement faux ou même que c'est un cadeau empoisonné. 1/7
Evidemment chacun est libre de juger comme bon lui semble. Mais pour ma part, il nous faut aller au delà des questions de personnes. En vrai je me fiche complètement des personnes d'Alassane Ouattara ou d'Ibrahim Traoré. Nos pays ont existé avant et existeront après eux . 2/7
C'est pourquoi je trouve que cette livraison d'armes n'est qu'un geste de solidarité d'un pays frère (pas des dirigeants). Cette solidarité a toujours existé et existera entre les peuples, n'en déplaise aux chauvins Ivoiriens et Burkinabè. 3/7

A reflection on Western African illiterate women diaspora in Italy.
I want to share a reflection I made a while ago.

I'm a so-called second generation migrant in Italy if Ghanaian descent, working with asylum seekers and migrants as mediator and teacher.
#Ghanaians make a distinction between #wisdom (literally "home intelligence") and #education ("school intelligence").
Working with Africans, especially Ghanaians and Nigerians, as a mediator I can see too often there is a lack of the latter.
I have met several illiterate or poorly educated young women (25-35 years).
Illiteracy comes with early death, exploitation, abusive relations, early parenting and – on what concerns my job – a high difficulty to understand and adapt to Italian/European system.

#Fulani herders are once again being threatened with expulsion in central #Ghana. Here’s some context on what’s going on, based on some of my work over the last year.
Earlier this week Tabital Pulaaku Ghana, a civil society group focused on issues affecting Fulani communities, issued a statement “pleading” with a paramount chief in Ashanti region to not evict Fulani herders from his area.
The expulsion order was issued in response to a surge in crime around Ejura which is being blamed on Fulani herders. “We’ll kill any cattle found in any village,” he told a gathering of chiefs, elders and security services. “We don’t want any Fulani herdsmen to live among us.”

A video is circulating showing the Italian PM criticize the #CFA franc in very harsh terms. Wow! Has the Far Right suddenly become “anti-imperialist”? Does this criticism make the Far Right an ally for our long time struggles? Below our take with @fpigeaud
Every time the Italian government has been lectured by its French counterpart, especially on migration, raising the CFA franc has been a convenient way for Rome to “retaliate”. This was already the case on January 2019.…
The #CFA #franc has been a kind of shameful and dirty secret for France. With limited exceptions, the French Left and media have always been silent on this harmful colonial relic and on French Imperialism more generally.

1/25.📜It’s day twelve of #COP27 and here is your daily #LossAndDamage focused thread. The intense negotiations on “funding arrangements" continue today after the release of a new text which contained a set of three options for a decision on a fund to address #LossAndDamage. 🧵
2/25. As summarised by @YebSano of @GreenpeaceSEA during @CANInt press conference these options equate to: “Option 1, we have a fund here. Option 2, we have a fund next year, Option 3, we don't have a fund, let's talk some more.”
3/25. However, it is very important to note — as we did earlier in an extensive thread— that “option number 1” is not in line with the G77 and China’s current proposal for an operating entity (be it a fund or facility) under the financial mechanism of the @UNFCCC.

We’re celebrating #WorldNewsDay! The theme is ‘Journalism Makes a Difference’ & throughout today we'll be highlighting some of our members' stories.

Each one showcases different themes but all demonstrate good journalism & why it's worth promoting + defending #JournalismMatters Image
🇬🇭Firstly, we feature @thegbcghana whose journalism makes a difference when it galvanises citizens to address societal issues.

Most recently, a news piece on the state of neglect at a rural primary school yielded positive results...

#WorldNewsDay22 #JournalismMatters #Ghana
“Travelling across rural Ghana reveals a huge disparity in accessing education for the rural and urban child,” GBC News Coordinator Peggy Ama Donkor explained.

“The aid makes a difference in the lives of the [students] in terms of enrolment and retention.”

#WestAfrica: THREAD - "Militarized Border Security Will Not Stop the Spread of Extremism into Coastal States."
My latest with @lmcsanders and Jordon Moss for @PolicyCenterNS where we provide some suggestions to avoid/limit the spread to #Benin #Togo #IvoryCoast and #Ghana 1/
#WestAfrica: Border strategies must enable trade, communication, and travel. Increasing the burden
of legitimate behaviors will make communities more vulnerable, alienate essential allies, and
lead people to see border officers as the enemy. 2/
#WestAfrica: Border security must serve & engage border communities and their leaders. Those who
live in border zones understand local dynamics better than external forces. They have critical information of what is changing, and have the most to lose from extremist influence. 3/

1/5 On #NationalPeacekeepersDay, it's important to confront the myth that #Canada is a #peacekeeping country - it's not. Canada is ranked #71 in world w only 54 soldiers wearing @UN blue helmets, according to @UNPeacekeeping statistics: ⬇️ 🧵 Image
2/ In 2015 @JustinTrudeau govt came to power promising more peacekeeping, but didn't. In 2017 govt also launched #ElsieInitiative to increase women in @UN #peaceoperations, but only 18 Canadian ♀️ are on #peacekeeping. #Canada doesn't do peacekeeping because it doesn't want to. Image
3/ So what countries are doing #peacekeeping & helping the @UN? Global south countries: #Bangladesh ranked #1 w over 6K peacekeepers, #Nepal, #India, #Ghana, #Senegal & #China is ranked #10.
How about the #US, the world's biggest, most well-funded military? What's its ranking❓🤔 Image

Now for a #Ghana 🧵 as this keeps being raised and I want to discuss two big shifts in JNIM strategy since 2021: /1
1) from the west, Katibat Alidougou has moved into Cote d'Ivoire's NE Bounkani and Zanzan Depart in 2020/2021 where there is some early evidence that they are penetrating Ghana’s Upper West region (ungoverned space around Dollar Power) and then freely move up to Burkina Faso. 2/
2) Meanwhile, JNIM is moving westward from the WAP park complex; in May JNIM moved their Ansarul Islam factions into the Koulou triangle, in presumably a deliberate move to localize the insurgency, and free up their katibats to move westward towards SW Burkina and Ghana /3
