10-man Benin pulls a shocker on Morocco to edge them out of AfCON

#MoiseAdilehou put the minnows, #Benin, ahead in the 53rd minute when he struck a volley from a corner. However, #EnNesyri equalized for #Morocco in the 76th and #Ziyach missed a 90th minute penalty that could have otherwise sent Benin home and #Morocco into the quarterfinals.

When the game proceeded to penalty shootout, #Morocco’s #Boufal missed his penalty while #Benin’s goalkeeper #OwolabiKassifa saved En-Nesyri’s pushing it onto the crossbar, and consequently sending their team home.

Can Trump’s Prosper #Africa make America greater than China and other partners in Africa? The official launch of the Trump Administration’s Prosper #Africa program at the Corporate Council on Africa’s U.S.-Africa Business #Summit in #Mozambique on June 19 comes after months of policy talk about ramping up trade and #investment between the #UnitedStates and #Africancountries.

Prosper Africa aligns with the Trump administration’s Africa strategy, introduced by National Security Adviser John Bolton last December, which aims to promote prosperity, security, and stability in #USAfrica relations, and confirms the administration’s prioritization of #trade and investment to reach those three objectives. This strategy might be “one of the most business-friendly U.S.-Africa policies in recent times—at least in principle.” Now, though, the administration has to bridge the gap between its praiseworthy business principles and the policy options needed to turn them into reality.

Bolton initially posed the administration’s Africa strategy as a direct counter to Chinese and Russian “predatory practices” and influence on the continent. Click on link to continue reading.

A big #China-#Africa expo set to open: The balance of trade between #African nations and #China is coming under scrutiny as the first China-Africa economic and trade expo opens on Thursday in the central #Chinese city of #Changsha.

Almost every country in Africa is taking part.

China is Africa's largest trading partner but it exports far more than it imports and African businesses are trying to devise new strategies for tapping into the huge Chinese domestic market.

China has also taken a leading role in improving infrastructure across Africa. There is concern that many countries may have accepted more Chinese loans than they can afford.

The renovations have been credited for increasing Mauritius’ power reserve by 42 Mega Watts, consequently addressing the needs that had come up thanks to the rapidly growing #population, #industries, #businesses, and #microenterprises.

#Ghana's industrialization agenda has received major boost as the country secures $75 million from the #WorldBank to develop industrial parks, and £20 million from the #UK Department for International Development to create jobs through industrial parks.

#Ghanian Trade Minister, Alan Kyeremanteng, says he is confident the establishment of industrial parks will attract the kind of #investors that would open #manufacturing plants and #factories to create #jobs for #Ghanaians and value for the #economy.

Celebrations as a #Somali university holds its first graduation in 30 years: The #SomaliNationalUniversity has held its first graduation ceremony in more than three decades.The university, based in the country's capital #Mogadishu, was shut down in the early 1990s after the breakout of civil war and unrest. It reopened in 2014.

More than 130 graduates were awarded degree certificates during the Monday's ceremony. In 2014, only 550 students applied to the university, but in 2018 that number increased to 5,070.

#Mauritania is set for its first ever peaceful transfer of power since independence: Nobody in #Mauritania has ever witnessed a #peaceful transfer of power in the country—but that’s about to change. Following #elections on Saturday, #MohamedOuldGhazouani, candidate of Mauritania’s ruling party, has been announced as president-elect, winning 51.9% of the vote. #Ghazouani will take over from #MohamedOuldAbdelAziz, who seized power in Mauritania in a 2008 coup and ruled for 11 years, winning two elections and serving five-year terms for each.

While #AbdelAziz is stepping down, it remains to be seen how much will change with his Union for the Republic ruling party set to remain in power. For their part, opposition parties have rejected the result with one describing it as “a coup d’etat.“

#Ghazouani campaigned on the ruling party’s record of #economic #growth but he will likely face pressure to resolve Mauritania’s enduring #slavery problem. Despite criminalising slavery in 2007—the world’s last country to do so, Mauritania has been consistently criticized for not doing enough to stop the practice. Courtesy Mark-Anthony Johnson

Zimbabwe sitting on huge deposits of rare minerals, President Mnangagwa

A game-changer for #Zimbabwe? Well, President #EmmersonMnangagwa says his government will embark on looking at how #Zimbabwe will explore the #minerals because, as it stands, the country does not have the required #technology and the necessary #skills to establish the exact size of the mineral reserves.

Usually, rare-earth minerals are mostly used in the production of fibre optics, television screens, fertilizers, and laser. They are also used in the manufacture of chemicals used to treat water.

President Mnangagwa: Zimbabwe is sitting on “huge deposits of rare-earth minerals that could be second largest after that of China".

Mr Erdogan also threatened to raise the issue at G20 meeting in #Japan later this month.

But now they are very proud of me.”

#Ethiopian lawyers to sue state-fun telecoms over internet blackout: A group of lawyers in #Ethiopia are planning to sue the country's state-run monopoly telecoms provider over the internet shutdown, which is now in its eighth day.

They argue that it amounts to denying citizens access to information, which they say is unconstitutional.

The blackout, which began last Tuesday, is affecting many parts of the country. The service resumed in the capital, #AddisAbaba, on Friday afternoon but appears to be down in much of the rest of the country.
