Botswana’s economy is projected to expand at a faster pace this year compared to last year as the mining sector benefits from a recovery in the global economy, Finance Minister Kenneth Matambo said on Monday. Presenting the 2018 budget to parliament, Matambo said GDP growth was projected at 5.3 percent in 2018 from an estimated 4.7 percent expansion in 2017.

Over the past 20 years, Franco Loja and Arjan Roskam, known as the "Kings of Cannabis," have made millions of dollars scouring the world for unique strains of weed to breed and then sell. Now, they've turned their sights on Equatorial Africa, specifically the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as their next gold mine — and a way to revolutionize the cannabis industry. "Equatorial Africa is one the best preserved because of the wars, the lack of infrastructure, political unrest. All these situations created isolation there," Loja explained. "So that's where we're going." Loja and Roskam built their global powerhouse on inbred strains of cannabis called "landraces" that they've collected from all over the world — Argentina, Australia, and Brazil, just to name a few spots. Without these strains, the duo's various breeding enterprises, Amsterdam coffeeshops, and even distribution centers wouldn't exist. VICE News met up with the “Kings of Cannabis” for a trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to hunt for one of the rarest species of Cannabis yet, the original Congolese landrace.

Christian pastor discovers a giant 706-carat diamond in Sierra Leone which could be the 10th largest EVER found and worth more than £50 MILLION Emmanuel Momoh found the precious stone in the eastern Kono region It will be sold by a 'transparent' bidding process but may leave the country Expert Paul Zimnisky said it is impossible to value the rare gem at this stage A Christian pastor working in a Sierra Leone mine has found a 706-carat diamond, which could be the tenth largest ever found. The precious stone was found by Emmanuel Momoh, who was working in the Kono region, in the east of the country. It will be sold in Sierra Leone in a 'transparent' bidding process to benefit the country, according to a government statement. It read: 'A 706-carat diamond was presented to President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma yesterday evening. 'Receiving the diamond President Koroma thanked the chief and his people for not smuggling the diamond out of the country.' Diamond expert Paul Zimnisky said it could be 'between the 10th and 15th largest gem-diamonds ever recovered' and such a find is very rare in a small mine. He said: 'Most recent exceptional diamond discoveries have been made by large commercial miners that mine very large volumes of kimberlite ore and process it with advanced equipment. 'Artisanal mining tends to produce smaller, lower quality diamonds because the diamonds suffer breakage and erosion.' Zimnisky said the stone would likely be sold outside Sierra Leone, despite the government's assertion, for better access to buyers. Without a professional assessment of the diamond's potential flaws and colouring it is impossible to value the stone. However, a polished stone cut from the Jonker, which is the 10th largest gem-diamond ever recovered until now at 726 carats, will go on sale in Hong Kong in May. A single 25-carat portion is likely to sell for $2.2 million to $3.6 million (£1.78 million to £2.75 million), or $88,000 to $144,000 for a single carat, Zimnisky said. A 1,111-carat diamond was discovered at a mine in Botswana in 2015, the biggest find for more than a century. That gem is second in size only to the Cullinan diamond which was unearthed in South Africa in 1905, at 3,106 carats uncut, according to the Cape Town Diamond Museum. The Cullinan was cut into several gems, including two set into the sceptre and crown of the British Crown Jewels. Historically, Sierra Leone has had a controversial role in the diamond industry. The sale of 'blood diamonds' helped finance civil wars across Africa in the 1990s and often funded military dictatorships on a continent that the London Diamond Bourse estimates provides 65 percent of the world's diamonds. Rebels allowed traders to exploit diamond mines and ship the gems abroad via Liberia. In one of the most notorious cases, former Liberian warlord Charles Taylor was found guilty of supporting the rebels in exchange for diamonds mined by slave labour. The district where the 706-carat diamond was discovered is where US-Belgian businessman Michel Desaedeleer, accused of enslavement and diamond trafficking during Sierra Leone's civil war, is alleged to have committed his crimes. He died in jail in September before he could stand trial. The death toll from Sierra Leone's civil war is estimated at 120,000. The country has a population of roughly six million people, making it one of Africa's deadliest conflicts in recent history.

Somalia exported over 5.3 million animals in 2015. That's 6% more than 2014's export levels, and it was boosted by a rise in overseas demand. The sector is the country's leading foreign exchange earner, and it raked in nearly $ 400 M last year. The bulk of the exports are goats, and sheep. A range of export-focused interventions, such as widespread vaccination and health check-ups, have made livestock farmers in Somalia more competitive, and better placed to take advantage of good prices and growing demand in Gulf nations. Countries such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt have increased demand for livestock. Somalia has been in conflict for over 20 years. Despite peace slowly returning to the Horn of African Nation, herders still fear that war or drought may weaken the sector leading to a fall in prices.

#AFRICANBILIONAIRES On top of the list for the eighth consecutive year is Aliko Dangote, a man who needs no introduction. With an estimated wealth of $10.3 billion, the Nigerian magnate remains perched on the summit despite losing $2 billion of wealth over the past year. This has primarily been due to the 20% stock price drop in Dangote Cement. Mike Adenuga is the second richest man in Nigeria and the continent with a strong showing of $9.2 billion. This represents an impressive jump from just $5.2 billion last year. Forbes says Adenuga provided more detailed information about his assets thus the jump. Adenuga is a major player in the telecommunications and oil sectors. He also holds an extensive real estate portfolio. He is said to have earned his first million at 26 selling lace and distributing soft drinks. South Africa's Nicky Oppenheimer is third with a massive fortune of $7.1 billion. He is proof that diamonds are indeed forever! Oppenheimer is a mining industry tycoon, having inherited 40% of DeBeers which he then sold to Anglo American. He owns vast expanses of conservation land in South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe. At fourth position is Egypt's Nassef Sawiris whose net worth of $6.3 billion comes from construction and chemicals. He runs one of the world's largest nitrogen fertilizer producers and has stakes in Lafarge Holcim and Adidas as well as Aston Villa Football Club. Johann Rupert and Family's $5.3 billion is enough to make them the fifth richest in Africa. Their wealth is mainly from selling luxury goods; anyone remembers Cartier and Montblanc? Johann Rupert is the chairman of Compagnie Financiere Richemont, the company behind the two brands. Having passed up the chance to buy Gucci when he could, Rupert has surely made up for his regrets.

Michael Tellinger shows off what could be one of the best pieces of evidence that there were giants on Earth a long, long time ago. Geologists have marvelled at this giant foot print in rough granite, about 4 feet long. Some still say that it is a natural erosion pattern. Personally I find that suggestion highy improbable for various reasons that I will not go into here. Prof. Pieter Wagener from UPE, suggests that "there is a higher probability of little green men arriving from space and licking it out with their tongues, than being created by natural erosion". It is located in South Africa, near the town of Mpaluzi, close to the Swaziland border. It is estimated to be between 200 million and 3 Billion years old because of our current understanding of the formation of granites in Earth's history. This dating immediately causes great debate and argument - so I urge you to keep your mind open and focused on the evidence. This amazing footprint in granite was discovered in 1912 by a hunter called Stoffel Coetzee, while hunting in the remote area. At the time this was a deeply remote part of South Africa known as the Eastern Transvaal, teeming with wild life, including antelope and lions. It remains in the same condition as it was when first discovered and the possibility that this was a carved hoax is extremely low because of its remote location. Even today, it is difficult to find. The real mystery is how this amazing phenomenon occured - I have no idea - but here it is and we cannot wish it away. YES - It is granite - it is a well recognised geological part of South Africa and recorded on all geological maps - that is why this footprint is such an incredible mystery. It can be desribed as a "phenocrystic" granite, OR coarse porphyritic granite, that underwent several different stages of cooling. The result being an interesting mixture of large and small granules. This is why granite companies are keen to mine this area for granite because it will look really "pretty" when polished. In the official Geology Of South Africa, this outcrop is called Mpuluzi Batholith (Granite) and the official dating of this rock produced dates of around 3,1 billion years. A real mystery that needs close scientific examination.

This is an interview that took place on September 13, 2012, during the Solar Power International (SPI)2012, filmed by Michael Nunamaker and interviewed, edited and uploaded by Susan Sun Nunamaker. It was wonderfully fortuitous that one of our interviews on the last day of Solar Power International (SPI) 2012 took place near a group of South African delegates, accompanied by an U.S. Embassy Commercial Officer, Aaron Karnell. Here is a perfect example of our global economy, the bloom is ready to blossom;all it needs is the nourishment of collaboration. "You might wonder why the American government would get involved in helping African solar professionals access to SPI. The reason is, getting them here is a win-win for everyone: African firms are seeking to grow their industry in their home countries, and they have come here to take advantage of the latest U.S. technology and falling prices. At the same time, the solar industry in America--and America's economic recovery--is being driven in large part by exports and Africa is a wide open market for US goods and services. The solar industry here just needs the right contacts with potential African partners." Mr./Officer Karnell said. Some points worth noting, below, were shared by Mr./Officer Aaron Karnell: --Eight solar power firm owners and operators from five Southern African countries attended the Solar Power International (SPI) conference in Orlando, Florida this week. Firm owners from Botswana, Zambia, South Africa, Mozambique and Namibia met with potential U.S. technology and investment partners, heard from industry experts on the state of the industry, and checked out the latest products on the market from the more than 1,200 exhibitors at the conference. Working with Maryland-based Elan International, the delegates' attendance at the conference was facilitated by the U.S. Embassy in Botswana and the U.S. Agency for International Development's Southern Africa Trade Hub. ---The African delegates have come to SPI ready to find U.S. partners and make new deals. Tamuka Kaseke, of South Africa's AE-AMD Independent Power, for example, has recently been licensed by the South African government to develop a 30MW solar project with other projects in the pipeline, and he's now looking for an opportunity to link up with EPC contractors and buy solar components for his solar parks. Clearly impressed with American design, technology, and yes--prices--Kaseke has talked with dozens of exhibitors and learned about financing options from The U.S. Export-Import Bank, among others. "I love what I'm seeing here," he said. --The three delegates from Botswana have been equally impressed. Felix Chavaphi, who owns the Botswana firm, Energy Systems, observed, "At this conference I'm seeing the state of the art." But he qualified the remark: "I have been surprised at how few Africans are here. Africa represents a new, potentially important market for solar products. Many African governments and private sector partners are ready to buy, and policies such as feed-in tariffs are being developed. Yet it doesn't seem the solar industry here has many African partners yet. I feel privileged because I'm getting a lot of attention here." --The group is the first U.S. Government-sponsored delegation to SPI from the Southern African region, which represents a market of more than 277 million people. I was quite fortunate today at SPI to have the opportunity to interview some of the members of the Southern African delegates Reginald Selelo of USAID, Shelvin Longmire from Elan International and Mr./Officer Aaron Karnell, will be seen in the video clip below: And even more fortunate to have the luck of running into the whole delegates on the way out of the Orange County Convention Center at the end of the day. I wish all the delegate members and Officer Karnell a smooth return journey to Southern Africa and that there will be much more cooperative commerce across the Atlantic, all in the effort of sharing the sunshine.

"The wars in Liberia destroyed and arrested social development to the extent that the infrastructure was destroyed, the schools were destroyed and so were the hospitals. The current development strategy of Liberia is the agenda for transformation. The main challenges to education remain accessibility. We need additional schools, we need to rehabilitate schools that were destroyed during the civil war and we need to provide properly trained teachers", Aneas Chuma, UNDP Resident Representative, Liberia. In Mozambique "IT'S AFRICA'S TIME" meets with Brasilian mining giant Vale to learn about the company's inclusive business strategies around mining and infrastructure; as well as the impacts of its investments in rail logistics for the region's socio economic development. "Vale's mission is to transform natural resources in economic development. There is no operation if we don't have sustainable development for people and for the environment," says Ricardo Saad, CEO of Vale Mozambique. Operations Manager, Altiberto Bandau, adds "It is not enough that you have an island of excellence inside the mine, if you have a sea of poverty outside the mine. And that's our philosophy. Our license to operate is much more than a license given by the government. It is actually given by society." Socio-economic growth and development in Malawi, is contingent on investment in infrastructural assets. "IT'S AFRICA'S TIME" travels to Southern Malawi and Likoma Island to observe the impact of Mota-Engil's extensive road rehabilitation programs. The Chikhwawa--Bangula road is a very important resource as it is a north-south corridor and provides access to border of Mozambique in the South, and subsequently affords land-locked Malawi with access to the sea. Says Gilberto Rodrigues, CEO of Mota-Engil Africa, "by building lots of roads in these locations, we contribute directly and indirectly to the alleviation of poverty. By improving the road conditions, transportation becomes cheaper and the people immediately gain competitiveness in the marketplace and benefit from fast access for goods and travel."

ERiTV: NEWS Foreign Minister Osman Saleh met Mr. Mikhail Bogdanov, Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia, yesterday and delivered President Isaias Afwerki's message to President Vladimir Putin. In the message, President Isaias pointed out that although Eritrea is not a supporter of the cold war, the fact that the past 25 years witnessed a uni-polar world, wars, continued crises and deep sufferings attests to the need for a global change which is more characterized by equal participation. In the course of the meeting, both sides exchanged views as regards implementation of previously reached agreements of partnership, especially in the domains of investment, trade, education and mainly mining, in addition to regional affairs. On arrival in Moscow city on May 31, the Eritrean delegation headed by Mr. Osman Saleh and that includes the Head of Political Affairs at the PFDJ, Mr. Yemane Gebreab, is continuing the visit. ......................................................

The clothing and textile-manufacturing sector was once, one of the largest employers in South Africa. It now only employs around 95 thousand people from over 600 thousand in the 90's. When South Africa opened up its market to the world in 1994, the industry struggled to compete with low cost producing countries. The decline was so rapid it almost wiped out the entire sector. The government is now developing a new plan to take the industry forward.
