Fatima is a 32 year old woman who is divorced and waiting for the next man to come along. Her parents want her married to the first man who even looks her way.

The Thread
Fatima grabs her gym bag and makes a beeline for the front door, hoping if she passed by the kitchen quickly enough, her mother might not see her. She's almost made it to the door when she hears her mother's voice calling her name.
She halts, drops her gym bag, groans inwardly and replies irritably, "Coming mummy!"

"Where do you think you're going young lady? Have you forgotten about your chores? I need help making the Roti's for tonight's dinner.

Refers to the Terms and Conditions As "One That Can Only be Accepted by Drunkard Person"

Way to go #Tanzania 👍…
The Tanzanian head of state, John Magufuli canceled Chinese loan of ten billion US dollar (US$10billion) agreement signed by his predecessor, Jakaya Kikwete with Chinese investors to construct a port at Mbegani creek in Bagamoyo, just north of Da es Salaam.
The Chinese investors had agreed with the former Tanzanian administration to build the port on condition that, they'll be granted a 30 years guarantee, 99 years lease with a demand that, the Tanzanian govt will have no power to raise concerns on whoever invests in the port.

In the light of the new #coronavirus cases in #Osun, let's very briefly talk about #Nigeria's (or Africa's borders). It was sometime last year that I found that probably the 4th largest concentration of Ogbomoso indigenes after Ogbomoso itself, Ibadan and Kano, is in Abidjan.
Basically, this Nigerian community has links with that part of #IvoryCoast because of trade routes that predate the British and the French, and apparently, those trade routes are still in use, which is how people made it through #Nigeria's ostensibly closed borders.
Internet service provider went down, so the thread will continue shortly.

I've seen replies that saying Ogbomoso people are also strong in #Jos and #Ghana, but for the purposes of this, I'll stick with what Mr Akin Akinbola, a much older man from Ogbomoso, told me in Paris.

Was manic day in the markets yesterday. But amid the chaos #Tanzania strolled quietly away from global debt mkts, having dipped their toes for 7 years. So now 20, not 21, African countries in the eurobond mkt. Story as 6* thread
As far back as 2008 Tz was seeking credit ratings & was anticipation might be issuing a eurobond. Most expected standard eurobond (eg 10 year maturity with fixed coupon, the norm then) but Tz decided to do own thing
Hired only Standard Bank & in Feb-13 made private placement of floating rate notes (LIBOR +600bpts). $600mn issued, 7-year life. Amortizing along way (9 semi-annual installments) so ave life was 5 years.

The #ClimateCrisis, buried in aggregate economic indicators:

A spike in inflation in #India "caused by food prices...a sharp rise in the price of vegetables... pulses... attributed to supply shocks caused largely by extreme weather events"

Food prices nearly double in Kenya

"economist Ken Gichinga attributes the rise to erratic weather conditions that hit various parts of the country late 2019"

Where is the media?

The doom is here. We don't need prophets.

#ClimateCrisis #foodsecurity
☝️...Anyone see a pattern?

In Sri Lanka:

"It is well-known that vegetable prices wrere going up rapidly in the last few months...The main reason for this is the climate anomalies...some crops were completely destroyed"

The list of truly fundamental needs for human life is a short one.

Food is on that list.

▶️This is how climate change impacted crops in 2019◀️

This is terrifying.

Designs representing culture & history are stitched in patterns on velvet fabric (originally). Today, it's evolved to satin & cotton fabrics.
