In Africa there are 54 countries , each one of them with unique architecture and design that represent the cultural identity and history of the people.

54 days , 54 projects one for every African nation .

I’ll start with Morocco I’ll ended in western sahara.

Enjoy Image
Day 1.

Morocco .

This 18th-Century Home renovated in the historical center of Essaouira it is an incredible example of traditional Moroccan architecture .

A traditional house renovated and decorated with a contemporary touch.

Between tradition and modernity. ImageImageImageImage
Designed by the French painter Jacques Majorelle the garden was created over the course of forty years, and consists of a labyrinth of crisscrossing alleyways on different levels and boldly-coloured buildings that blend both Art Deco and Moorish influences.

An hidden beauty ImageImageImageImage

Afrique,

#Paypal est un portefeuille numérique, et serait l'un des "meilleurs" et simples d'utilisation au monde.
Créé par un "Africain", cet outil digital semble oublier ou mieux moins considérer l'Afrique Noir à l'exception de l'Afrique du Sud.

Pourquoi? suivez moi🚶‍♂️
Il est bien entendu facile de créer un compte sur #Paypal depuis tous les pays d'Afrique c'est d'ailleurs un jeu d'enfant
Et surtout très facile de faire des paiements avec, là où l'inquiétude subsiste, est quand il s'agit de recevoir un paiement ou un transfert
L'indisponibilité de ce service en retour pose bien évidemment des problèmes de fonctionnement, que ce soit au niveau des entreprises qui opèrent avec leurs partenaires de l'autre bout du monde mais aussi au niveau des parents qui veulent soulager les familles depuis la diaspora

(Part 1)

This is beautiful. So beautiful. So beautiful. Can't wait to meet my Lord Jesus, my Beloved One, there😭😭😭😭

That conversation part, I remember the very first time God taught me to listen to His Voice. Usually, before I had finished my words or questions,
He had already answered them. He had known what I am going to ask and say. And He usually answered me with rhetoric questions, or, sometimes with questions that require my answers.

But later on, until now, He, with His Grace❤, is patiently listening to me until I finished
my words. Except sometimes, He really does need to intervene and stop me before I have finished my words...

So I could relate with that.

But this is so beautiful, that's no other words could describe it except Beautiful 💙

"Tuesday was a great day in global health – the certification of the eradication of wild poliovirus in Africa."-@DrTedros #EndPolio #AfricaKicksOutWildPolio

"This remarkable effort was started by @Rotary in the 1980s & advanced by Nelson Mandela in 1996, with the launch of a campaign to “Kick Polio Out of Africa”. At the time, polio paralyzed 75 thousand children every year."-@DrTedros

EXCLUSIVE: my team at the @DFRLab & I uncovered a massive political influence op run by a Tunisian company that ran a network of more than 900 FB pages, groups, users and IG accounts to influence presidential elections across Africa. atlanticcouncil.org/in-depth-resea… #OperationCarthage
@DFRLab The op, which we’re referring to as #OperationCarthage, used coordinated inauthentic behavior on FB and other platforms to influence multiple elections.
@DFRLab Among the campaigns supported by #OperationCarthage were Nabil Karoui’s 2019 presidential campaign in Tunisia, Faure Gnassingbé’s Feb 2020 campaign in Togo and Henri Konan Bédié’s current campaign in Cote d’Ivoire.

#BurkinaFaso: A thread on military operations and the militant groups straddling the borders of several West African coastal states
#BurkinaFaso: To begin with several of these countries are on the alert, fearing spillover [or maybe even expansion] of violent militant activities into their countries, debatable if that will happen,..
#BurkinaFaso: ..non-violent activities is a reality though, movements, recruitment, logistic transfers. #Benin experienced what so far is a one-off incident with the killing of a Beninese tour guide and the abduction of a French couple

#PequeñosGrandesHeroes, Capítulo 3️⃣

En esta edición volvemos a cambiar de continente. Estamos en #Africa 🌍 para hablar de un seleccionado que hizo historia en el 2006, #Angola 🇦🇴. Este es un relato triunfal en medio de tantas desgracias. Image
Angola es una nación relativamente joven, ya que se independizó de #Portugal 🇵🇹 en 1975. Si bien es un país rico en yacimientos minerales y petrolíferos, no pudieron disfrutar de los beneficios de esto ya que la guerra civil los atrapó y los hundió en la miseria. Image
La guerra acabaría recién en el 2002, aunque sus secuelas quedarán por siempre en todos aquellos que la han vivido, sea por combatir como por haber perdido a algún ser querido. De hecho, los jugadores de esta historia no quedarían exentos de este dolor... Image

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.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

Maybe you’ve seen #Togo on Disney+, which is a true story about musher Leonard Seppala and his lead dog, who crossed incredibly tough terrain to carry medicine to Nome and prevent an epidemic.

It’s an important story—and it made me realize I haven’t talked much about lead dogs.
Most people know that lead dog(s) run in front of the team. But their job is a lot subtler than that, too, and there are some pretty big misconceptions.
First off, many people think that lead dogs are dominant. That they fight their way to the top. I think this myth comes from Jack London, and it is totally, completely wrong (as is the flawed theory of “alpha dogs” that it taps into).

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 africanastronomicalsociety.org/activities/tra…, sarao.ac.za/transit-of-mer… and transit2019.saao.ac.za

Big news from the latest @UN report on #ISIS/#alQaida was ISIS' rebuild strategy and that much of it is being directed by Abu Bakr al-#Baghdadi out of Iraq

But there are a number of other interesting observations in the report...
On #alQaida, the @UN intelligence suggests the group although the health of AQ leader Ayman al-Zawahiri & AQ's succession plan "are in doubt"
The @UN report also concludes #alQaida-aligned groups "are stronger than their #ISIL [#ISIS] counterparts in #Idlib, #Syria|n Arab Republic, #Yemen, #Somalia and much of West #Africa"

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.

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...
