31 African countries allowed into Benin without Visa

Posted on February 16, 2017 at 5:01am 0 Comments

Beninese authorities have abolished the

short stay visa for nationals of 31 African

countries.

The exemption promised by President

Patrice Talon, is based on the Rwandan

example, and applies to stays of less than 90

days.

Talon announced last August during a visit

to Kigali that he was considering the

abolition of visas for Africans.

“Based on the experience of Rwanda, I

decided that Benin will no longer require

visas for Africans. South-South cooperation

can make real sense. My hope is that

cooperation between Rwanda and Benin

can serve as an example,” Talon said.

According to a document of the Consulate

General of Benin in Paris, dated January 10,

2017, nationals of 31 countries of the

continent are now exempt from visa for

Benin, for stays of a duration not exceeding

90 days.

This list of the countries exempt include

those from South and East Africa such as

South Africa and Kenya.

The short-stay visa is abolished for nationals

of 31 African countries.

The documents has the following countries;

South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Comoros,

Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic

of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the

Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon,

Equatorial Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho,

Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique,

Namibia, Uganda, Rwanda, Sao Tome and

Principe, Seychelles, Somalia, Swaziland,

Chad, Tanzania, Zambia & Zimbabwe.

The Visa exemptions are in addition to the

national of 15 countries in West Africa that

are members of the Economic Community of

West African States (ECOWAS), which Benin is

also a member. The ECOWAS countries

include: Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Gambia,

Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali ,

Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo,

and Cape Verde.

Why Do People Die in Their Sleep?

Posted on January 13, 2017 at 5:00am 0 Comments

By Brandon Peters, MD -Reviewed

by a board-certified physician for verywell.com



In ancient Greek mythology, Sleep was the

twin brother of Death, children of the

personified Gods of Darkness and Night. It

seems there has always been an association

between sleep and death. When people die

in their sleep, it seems like a peaceful and

almost idealized way to pass. Why do people

die in their sleep? Explore some of the most

common causes and how sleep disorders

like sleep apnea, snoring, and insomnia may

contribute to a higher risk of never waking

up.

When Death Comes in the Night

We spend one third of our lives asleep, so it

should be no surprise that a lot of people

die in their sleep. There is an important

difference between dying overnight

(especially when healthy) and dying when

unconscious in the latter stages of a fatal

disease. Older people and those who are

sick who die draw less scrutiny than the

young.

Depending on the setting of the death

(home versus hospital versus assisted care

facility), the death may be commented on by

a physician. Rarely would an autopsy be

performed (or indicated) unless unusual

circumstances are present. This evaluation

may be more likely in younger adults or

children who die suddenly in the community

without known illness.

Even an autopsy may be unrevealing. The

cause of death may not be clear. The death

certificate may note non-specific reasons:

“cardiorespirat ory failure,” “died of natural

causes,” or even “old age.” Family and

friends may be left wondering what

happened, and it can be helpful to

understand some of the causes of death

that occur in sleep.

Setting Aside Trauma, the Environment, and

Substances

In some cases, death occurs due to some

sort of external factor, either directly from

Ethiopia bids to become wind capital of Africa

Posted on December 20, 2016 at 4:30am 0 Comments

CNN

As countries rally around for cleaner,

alternative sources of energy to meet their

needs as well as their commitments as

promised at COP 22 which took place in

Paris, France in 2015, there has been an

increasing shift to solar power.

However, some other countries are

harvesting another natural resource to meet

energy demands–Wind. Yes, Ethiopia, a

nation in East Africa is making a big to

become the largest producer of wind-

generated energy.

In May 2015, the country commissioned the

Adama II wind facility in Nazret; the farm

consisted of 102 turbines, has an output of

153 megawatts and is currently Africa’s

second largest wind farm. The largest single

wind facility is the 301 megawatt Tarfaya

farm situated in Morocco.

Well, Ethiopia’s plan to lead the African

continent is one that seems to be following

a track of improvement, before the Adama II

project came online, in 2013, the Ashedoga

plant with its 84 turbines and a capacity of

120 megawatts to power 100,000 homes

was the largest wind farm in Africa. The

country has two smaller wind farms near

Adama, southeast of Addis Ababa, with a

capacity of 51 megawatts each.

Currently, energy output in Ethiopia is over

4,000 megawatts, which is mainly sourced

from hydroelectric power, however, that is

set to change with the government’s plan to

increase output to about 17,000 megawatts

with wind power playing a major role.

Erratic power supply is still rampant;

according to the World Bank, less than 30

percent of Ethiopia is connected to the

electricity grid and the country needs the

energy to drive economic growth that has

averaged more than 10 percent in the past

decade.

Wind power is also expected to offer

benefits for surrounding communities by

providing jobs and the opportunity to

Ethiopian-born Israelis can now donate blood

Posted on December 10, 2016 at 6:09am 1 Comment

The Health Ministry announces that Israelis

born in Ethiopia will now be allowed to

donate blood; the change was hard-won

and took years to become ministerial policy;

'It may be 30 years late, but the light has

beaten out the phobia that's been cast on

us ever since we came here, says Pnina

Tamano-Shata, the Ethiopian-born former

MK that led the change in policy.

In a battle that took years to win, it was

announced on Thursday that the Health

Ministry will begin accepting blood

donations from those born in Ethiopians.

The decision came about due to a persistent

call to end the discrimination, stemming

from the 2013 Ynet report on Pnina

Tamano-Shata, then an Ethiopian MK for

Yesh Atid, who was denied the option of

donating blood due to her being born in

Ethiopian.

Former Health minister Yael German, also

from Yesh Atid, teamed up with Tamano-

Shata at the time to bring about this change

in policy. "I was stunned by the fact that she

wasn't allowed to donate blood, in addition

to (other) community members," said

German of the case. "Together, we founded

the committee that offered up

recommendations that changed things."

The back story to the change was an

incident that occurred in December 2013,

when Tamano-Shata had wished to donate

blood as part of a Knesset blood drive held

by MDA (Israel's medical emergency and

blood bank service). When she approached

the medical team taking donations, she was

told that could not donate blood due to

"Ethiopians' special blood type."

When she insisted on receiving a more

acceptable answer, she was referred to the

person in charge. Tamano-Shata asked to

have a professional team assess her

personal details and determine whether she

was eligible to give blood. After another

examination, she was told that she was… Continue

Africa set to have its first smartphone manufacturing company. It creates over 600 jobs in Ethiopia

Posted on December 6, 2016 at 9:30am 0 Comments

A South African start up with 10.8 billion
dollars is set to become the first company to
manufacture Android smartphones under a
licensing deal with Google, reports
Bloomberg.
Onyx Connect company is looking at the low
costs and growing local demand to build
handsets, tablets and other devices based
on Google Inc’s android system.
The company will also partner with
Vodacom Group Ltd in South Africa which is
willing to access high quality devices made
in South Africa.
The South African company is setting up a
distribution center in 12 to 18 months in
Ethiopia which will create over 600 jobs.
The company says it can build a phone with
a camera and a gigabyte of memory for
about $30 compared to the high prices have
to pay for such phones since they are
imported.
Onyx Connect’s plan involves tapping into
China’s strengths by souring for circuit-
board designs and raw components from
the Asian country. Onyx Connect says that
design work of the phones and its cases,
research and development for future
models, will all take place on African soil.
‘Some South African companies, including
Sekoko Mobile, Zest Mobile and Mint Mobile,
are already assembling smartphones from
imported kits. By going a step further and
actually manufacturing the devices, Onyx is
saving on import duties.’ Says the report.

Is Africa’s entire GDP equal to that of France? Obama is mostly correct

Posted on October 18, 2016 at 9:29am 0 Comments

During a recent US-Africa forum in New

York, US president Barack Obama said

that all of Africa produces about as much

as France.

“The fact is that, despite significant growth

in much of the continent, Africa’s entire GDP

is still only about the GDP of France,” Obama

claimed. (Bloomberg)

As US president Barack Obama’s term ticks

down, he has been keen to highlight his

legacy. This includes his achievements in

Africa, where his father hailed from.

Speaking recently to an audience that

included African heads of state, Obama said

his administration was doing more

business with the region through initiatives

such as Trade Africa and Power Africa .

That said, Obama emphasised that the

bilateral relationship was only just

scratching the surface and urged for more

mutual trade.

“The fact is that, despite significant growth

in much of the continent, Africa’s entire GDP

is still only about the GDP of France,” he

claimed.

Could the gross domestic product in Africa,

a continent of 55 recognised states, be only

as much as that of one country? We sought

to find out.

Most African countries’ GDP estimates are

weak

Gross domestic product (GDP) measures the

market value of final goods and services

(those that are bought by the final user)

produced in a country in a given period.

Africa Check was unable to get official

comment from the White House as to which

sources Obama used to compare the GDP of

Africa and France.

Because an economy’s output can be

measured in various ways, the United

Nations came up with the System of

National Accounts after the Second World

War. This was meant to harmonise GDP

standards, with the fourth and latest

version released in 2008 .

Despite routine reviews by the World Bank

to ensure compliance,… Continue

Germany's secret plot to use Ethiopia's Prince to attack its neighbours during WW1 and how the prince scuppered the plans BBC News

Posted on September 26, 2016 at 6:04am 0 Comments

A hundred years ago, the Ethiopian prince

Lij Iyasu was deposed after the Orthodox

church feared he had converted to Islam.

But it also scuppered Germany's plans to

draw Ethiopia into World War One, writes

Martin Plaut.

In January 1915 a dhow slipped quietly out

of the Arabian port of Al-Wajh. On board

were a group of Germans and Turks, under

the guise of the Fourth German Inner-Africa

Research Expedition.

Led by Leo Frobenius, adventurer,

archaeologist and personal friend of the

German Emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm II, its aim

was nothing less than to encourage Ethiopia

to enter World War One.

Germany believed that the Suez canal was

Britain's "jugular vein" allowing troops and

supplies to be brought from Australia, New

Zealand and India.

The war plan

An assault on the canal by Turkish and

German forces had been repelled in early

1915, but it was clear that this was not the

final attack.

Ethiopia - an independent nation - was the

major power in the region and Germany

believed that if it could persuade the

Ethiopians to enter the war on its side,

British and allied forces would have to be

withdrawn from the Canal and other fronts.

The aims of the General Staff in Berlin were:

"To force the enemy to commit large forces

in defending their colonies in the Horn of

Africa, thus weakening their European front

and relieving the German forces fighting in

German East Africa."

This called for "insurrection" in Sudan with

the aim of toppling British rule and attacks

on French-ruled Djibouti and Italian Eritrea.

"The colonial Italian and French possessions

on the shore of the Red Sea were difficult

even impossible to defend without [the]

commitment of large forces: chances were

that an Ethiopian blow against the shores of

the Red Sea and Suez Canal would… Continue
