On l’aura compris, il s’agit d’accompagner mĂ©moriellement l’africanisation progressive de la France au prĂ©texte de cĂ©lĂ©brer les sinistres troupes coloniales.

Celles qui furent utilisĂ©es pour conquĂ©rir et « pacifier » (des dizaines de milliers de morts) #Madagascar et que LĂ©opold SĂ©dar Senghor surnommait les « Dogues noirs de l’Empire ».
Ces mĂȘmes tirailleurs sĂ©nĂ©galais qui massacrĂšrent les indigĂšnes en #AlgĂ©rie et se distinguĂšrent dans la #Ruhr... On retrouvera pour les cĂ©lĂ©brer, tous les admirateurs du systĂšme colonial main dans la main avec les rĂ©publicains FM « anti-racistes » .

#Vanilla prices are likely the most volatile of any agricultural commodity.

After a 5-year boom, prices seem to crash this year.

Time for a thread đŸ§”on vanilla price volatility, the impact of high prices on smallholders in #Madagascar and what might happen now. 👇👇👇 ImageImageImage
#Madagascar is the largest producer of vanilla today, accounting for roughly 40% of the global harvest.

Almost all Malagasy vanilla is farmed by smallholders in the north-east of the country in agroforestry systems.

Farming vanilla is highly labour intensive – starting from the establishment of the plantation, over hand-pollination, harvest and curing (clockwise).

No wonder vanilla is expensive! ImageImageImageImage

After receiving global backlash for ridiculing African Herbal Remedies that founded Medicine profession, WHO Director DR. Tredos finally congratulated Madagascar’s efforts in the fight against #Covid19 during the conference call held yesterday
WHO will sign a non-disclosure agreement with #Madagascar on the herbal treatment formulation.
But why is it that they are more interested in how its made if they said there is no proof it works?
#Africa should protect its traditional medicine technology.

The coronavirus is showing #Nigeria up in a big way.

Government revenues have entered the toilet and are unlikely to come out soon.

So much so that @NigeriaGov wants to seize #COVIDăƒŒ19 donations and use them to fund #budget2020
The move to divert #COVIDăƒŒ19 donations to #budget2020 is rather shortsighted if you think about it, but here we are, and it is all as a result of government laziness and it shows that all the talk of wanting to diversify the economy is nonsense.
The numbers bear this out, #Nigeria's economy is already diversified.

Oil is 7.32% of GDP.
Agric is 21.2%.
Industry outside oil is 18.5%.
Services are 52%.

I wrote in detail about it in today's @BusinessDayNg

Dr. Jerome Muyangi is the man behind the touted "cure" from from Madagascar.
He is a medical doctor and researcher on Neglected Tropical diseases.
He does research on Artemisia annua which is extracted from plants around S. Africa
Found 2 of his papers. This gets Interesting
This same therapy has now being converted for use to treat #Covid19, the president of Madagascar is firmly touting its effectiveness, but interestingly the news says it has "cured" just 2 people and based on that they believe it works based on some tests done
As most of us know from the way this disease occurs, more than 90% of those who get infected recover, a significant percentage of that do not even have symptoms at all.
So what do they mean by "cured"?
What does the president of Madagascar mean by it is effective?

If the western leaders and their big corporate partners believe that Africa is still that primitive, archaic continent of our forefathers they used to step on... they have another thing coming.

#Madagascar #day37oflockdown #MadagascarMedicine
There is a new generation of "wokeness" that is not going to tolerate arrogant, snobbish, hypocritical, pea-minded and self-serving pretenders who enter the world with superior airs of "holier-than-thou", "we and them" attitude
calling themselves Donors, Philanthropist or any title to distance themselves to other ordinary folks whom they look down on. Africa is woke! Africa is taking the front seat!✊

Babies and very young children are at greatest risk from #measles infections, with potential complications including pneumonia and encephalitis (a swelling of the brain), as well as lifelong disability - permanent brain damage, blindness or hearing loss
Recently published evidence shows that contracting the #measles virus can have further long-term health impacts, with the virus damaging the immune system’s memory for months or even years following infection

Mercury will pass between Earth & Sun on afternoon, 11 Nov 2019 Monday. Most of #MercuryTransit2019 can be seen from all of Africa, till local sunset. @SKA_Africa @SAAOOutreach @AfricaAstronomy @Astro4Dev & others are coordinating a Africa-wide campaign for #ToM2019 #ToMAfrica
It is VERY dangerous to look at the Sun directly using telescope binoculars or naked eyes. Looking at Sun's image projected onto a sheet of paper by a telescope is safe. There r a few public events by science centres etc in Africa where u can see #ToM2019 safely (pic @samyukta_m)
An interactive map of public events in Africa for #ToMAfrica, transit timings, a free handbook on #ToM2019, posters, and a podcast on #MercuryTransit2019 are at

Visiting #LaReunion allowed for a very special adventure with my 8-month old son. We wanted to see one of the rarest birds in the world before it disappeared: the Reunion Cuckoo-shrike.

This is a thread about #birds, #birding, fatherhood, #biodiversity and #extinction ... 1/13
@Team_eBird @BirdLife_News @BirdWatchingMag @Natures_Voice @WildlifeMag @Britnatureguide @RareBirdAlertUK @extinctsymbol @BirdNoteRadio 2. What does #extinction mean? What does it feel like? How does our species internalise, let alone rationalise, the loss of another?

Perhaps, like the Universe itself, the #anthropocene sixth mass extinction is too big, too abstract, just too *much*, for us to absorb.
@Team_eBird @BirdLife_News @BirdWatchingMag @Natures_Voice @WildlifeMag @Britnatureguide @RareBirdAlertUK @extinctsymbol @BirdNoteRadio 3. So let's focus on just one species: a bird few have heard of, and fewer would likely think or care about. A type of cuckoo-shrike found only on #Reunion, the next-door island to my home in #Madagascar.

A bird from an island where avian extinctions have already occurred.

 thanks @dossier_center
Here's analysis piece on what #Kremlin is seeking to achieve in #Africa: finding new allies, shoring up dictators, striking business and military deals, pushing out US, France and UK, squashing pro-democracy revolts

And here's my mini-profile of Yevgeny #Prigozhin, the man leading #Russia's push in #Africa. From Soviet felon and hot-dog seller to the Kremlin's global action man and oligarch emperor of the St Petersburg troll factory

#Russia-n mercenaries are now showing up everywhere in #Africa: one country in particular is the #CAR where Russians are also providing weapons. Also present in the #Niger Delta of #Nigeria actually helping the rebels that target the western oil companies.
Fascinating story on how #Russia entered the #CAR. It was blocking a delivery of weapons from #France to #Bangui so #Macron told CAR President to go and convince Russia to unblock the sale. Instead Russia saw an opportunity to sell its own weapons to CAR.
3 #Russian journalists killed in #CAR while filming #Wagner, the private military firm run by Evgeny #Prigozhin used especially in #Syria, part of #Putin's inner circle. Documentary was part of @tzurrealism, supported by Mikhail #Khodorkovsky.

Thread de ce qui se passe Ă  #Madagascar :
Petite remise en contexte : le pays souffre d'une trĂšs grande corruption favorisĂ©e par le gouvernement et le bien-ĂȘtre de la population est au plus bas.
Trois nouvelles lois électorales ont donc été introduites, elles concernent donc les élections prochaines qui sont sensées se passer en décembre prochain. Mais ce sont des lois qui désavantagent les partis opposants
