I will make a thread on why I am against the electoral putsch in #DRC and why I am worried for this country that has never known a democratic transition since independence.
Let me start with a disclaimer : I don’t like France. No rather I hate France. I have never hidden it and this will not change even after my death because it is personal. France hurt me , physically , psychologically, emotionally , financially by imposing a savage regime in #Togo
This said, may you all know that I don’t give a jack about #France and it’s mate Belgium which did worse in the #DRC than #France did in #Togo where we still have memories of White French soldiers descending on the streets along with our soldiers to repress us during protests.

A thread on why the crisis in #Togo is escalating
1- Last year the people started protesting to demand the reinstatement of a constitution that encompassed terms limit which was voted by 97% during a referendum in 1992 but Eyadema changed in 2002 #Togodebout #Fauremustgo
2- The government has to either reinstate terms limit of the president @FEGnassingbe who is serving a third term and this thanks to vote rigging and the massacre of over 500Togolese civilians when he seized power following the death of his father in 2005 #Togodebout #Fauremustgo
3- The regime then rushed to pass a new constitution which included terms limit but included a new article stating that the terms limits do not affect the current of past terms of the president. Meaning he gets two more terms plus the 3 he sever starting 2020. #Fauremustgo

In a week where the North East got yet another military commander, we got a better look at overburdened infrastructure.

Elsewhere, as MTN gears up to enter the banks’ turf, concern over Nigeria's food import practices conjures a picture of a recently painted but creaking house.
The @MTNGroup's announcement is a positive for #Nigeria's economy as it substantiates previous comments by MTN that it has no plans to exit Nigeria despite its spat with @cenbank over alleged illegal fund repatriation.
The announcement ties into @MTNGroup’s strategy to become the biggest provider of mobile financial services in #Africa.

The telecoms-led drive to provide mobile money services will introduce a new interesting chapter in #Nigeria’s financial services sector.

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...
