‘The mysterious economic miracle that is Ethiopia’ Christian Rogg

NEW OXFORD HANDBOOK ON ETHIOPIA'S ECONOMY By Fantu Cheru, Christopher Cramer, and Arkebe Oqubay (Eds), The Oxford University Press, 2019

‘Unorthodox’ and ‘unique’ are two words often used to describe the Ethiopian economic development model. This country’s sustained combination of high growth and rapid poverty reduction over the last quarter of a century has impressed and confounded observers. This success is particularly remarkable as previously Ethiopia was mostly known for famine and war, rather than economic miracles. This is certainly how I got to know Ethiopia when I started my own research looking at poverty dynamics in the mid-1990s. 16


Understanding and explaining how Ethiopia achieved this transformation is the focus of a new book, The Oxford Handbook of the Ethiopian Economy, which has just been published by Oxford University Press (OUP) and is edited by Fantu Cheru, Christopher Cramer, and Arkebe Oqubay. Running to 1,000 pages, it is not for the fainthearted, but its scope and depth will make it a reference book for many years to come, both for those interested in Ethiopia and for those who want to learn lessons for other countries. That it is the first OUP economics handbook on any African country is testament to the fact that Ethiopia’s experience stands out (as well as to the commitment of the contributors). In reading the various chapters—ranging from land reform to infrastructure and from undernutrition to industrialization—I was struck by the conclusions that emerge and that, for me, lie at the heart of how Ethiopia has made so much progress. First, Ethiopia dispels the myth that African countries cannot grow as rapidly as Asian economies because they are held back by a reliance on natural resources, corruption, and poor policymaking. Ethiopia initially focused on raising smallholder agricultural production levels through




The Oxford Handbook of the Ethiopian Economy is the first ever economics handbook on a single African country focused on the theme of structural transformation. It is intended to serve as a major reference book on the Ethiopian economy for university students, researchers and policy makers. The Handbook studies Ethiopia’s unique model of development, the fastest growing in Africa, during the past 15 years, where the state plays a central role, and where a successful industrialization drive focuses on structural change.

Christian Rogg is the head of DFID Ethiopia and holds a PhD in economics from the University of Oxford. He also served in various posts at DFID and as economic development consultant to the World Bank, the US Government and the InterAmerican Development Bank.

Fantu Cheru is Emeritus Professor of International Relations, American University (Washington, DC) and a Senior Researcher at the African Studies Centre, Leiden University (The Netherlands). Dr Cheru has served both as adviser and consultant to many governments and donor institutions and is on the editorial board of several scholarly journals.

well-known measures like expanding rural roads and irrigation, improving farming practices, and making inputs like seeds and fertiliser more readily available. Over the last decade, the focus has moved towards labour-intensive and exportoriented manufacturing industries. While threequarters of Ethiopians are still living in rural areas, fast-growing urban centers and industrial parks are now attracting companies relocating some of their production capacity from Asia. Second is the complex role that the Ethiopian government has played. Observers have long predicted that this state-led model of development is doomed to fail. Yet it has achieved remarkable success. My sense is that this is because few, if any, governments in Africa have been as willing to learn, self-criticize, admit failures, and change direction as Ethiopia’s. The inherent confidence in Ethiopia, stemming from its long history and ability to resist colonization, has not led to hubris. In my policy dialogue with African governments over the last 20 years, Ethiopia stands out for its level of ambition, drive, and commitment to improve the welfare of its citizens. This gradual approach to economic transformation—as opposed to the shock therapy seen in other countries—combined with longterm planning, regular reviews of progress, open admission of failure, and willingness to change direction have served Ethiopia well. It is also what is needed now, as Ethiopia seeks to deliver the wide range of reforms announced since 2018 and master the challenging but exciting road ahead.

Christopher Cramer is Professor of the Political Economy of Development at SOAS, University of London. A Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences, he is also Vice-Chair of the Royal African Society and chairs the International Scientific Committee of the African Programme on Rethinking Development Economics (APORDE), based at the DTI in South Africa. He is the author of the prize-winning Civil War is Not a Stupid Think: Accounting for Violence in Developing Countries. Arkebe Oqubay, PhD, is a Senior Minister and Special Adviser to the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, and has been at the center of policymaking for over 25 years. He is a Research Associate at the Centre of African Studies in the University of London. His recent works (published by Oxford University Press, OUP) include the path-breaking Made in Africa (OUP, 2015); How Nations Learn: Technological Learning, Industrial Policy, and Catch Up (OUP, 2019); China-Africa and an Economic Transformation (OUP, 2019); and The Oxford Handbook of Industrial Hubs and Economic Development (OUP, Forthcoming). He was recognised as one of the 100 most influential Africans of 2016 and a “leading thinker on Africa’s strategic development” by the New African for his work, both practical and theoretical, on industrial policies. He is a recipient of the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Star presented by the Emperor of Japan.

MICROSOFT’S AFRICAN SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT HUB While Microsoft has had a presence in Africa for nearly three decades, in the past five years the software giant has launched several major initiatives focused on increasing access to computing and promoting its products across the continent. The latest of these efforts is the development of the Africa Development Centre (ADC), a software engineering hub that will have offices in Lagos and Nairobi. The ADC will focus on developing solutions in the fast-growing fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning and mixed reality. Microsoft is backing up this new center with a commitment to invest over $100 million and hire over 500 African engineers over the next five years.

PEPSICO EXPANDS THROUGH SOUTH AFRICAN ACQUISITION PepsiCo Inc., the global drink and snack manufacturer, is gearing up to compete for more business in African markets. In July, the company announced a $1.8 billion acquisition of Pioneer Foods Group, a South African food and beverage group that exports its products to 80 countries. Through this transaction, PepsiCo gains manufacturing facilities in several African countries and a portfolio of local brands that will serve as ammunition in the company’s battle for market share against Coca-Cola and other global conglomerates.

THE NBA’S NEW AFRICAN BASKETBALL LEAGUE Last year, various studies and news articles in the U.S.A. proclaimed that basketball had overtaken other sports to become the nation’s favorite pastime. Shortly after this announcement came the news that the National Basketball Association (NBA) had become the most popular sports league in China. The NBA now seeks to challenge the dominant popularity of football in Africa with an ambitious, multi-faceted push into the continent’s sports sector. The league has established a youth training academy in



Senegal in West Africa, promoted the recruitment of African players to NBA teams and, most recently, established a new African basketball league to give local talents a professional platform and local fans an opportunity for highquality sporting entertainment. The Basketball Africa League (BAL) will launch with 12 club teams in six nations: Nigeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Senegal and Angola. The league’s first championship match, the BAL Final, will be held in Kigali, Rwanda. A SUPER

Diplomacy & Development DabaDoc


InStrat Global Health Solutions


• Founded in 2014 by a brother and sister team in Morocco, DabaDoc is an online platform that helps patients select doctors and book medical appointments. The platform also has a suite of digital marketing and scheduling tools that are used by thousands of doctors and clinics. DabaDoc is currently available in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, with plans to soon expand to West Africa.

• Chefaa was founded by two Egyptian female PhDs with the goal of making it easier for patients with chronic conditions to order their medications online. The service is free to use for patients, with the company earning revenue by charging fees to pharmacies on each transaction. The company also solicits donations to enable lowincome customers to afford medicines. Chefaa is available in cities across Egypt and the startup recently secured venture capital investments to enable further expansion across the region.

• This Nigerian startup is focused on digitizing medical records to provide better care for patients, especially in rural and remote areas. Instrat Global Health Solutions has developed a Clinical Patient Administration Kit (CliniPAK) that uses mobile tablets and satellite technology to collect medical data from any corner of the country. The company also offers a video-based mobile training platform to provide on-demand education to health workers.

• While genetic information is increasingly being used to develop advanced pharmaceuticals and therapeutic treatments, DNA information from Africa constitutes only 2% of the data available to the world’s researchers. This is particularly striking since Africans have been found to have far more genetic diversity than the inhabitants of any other continent. 54gene is a startup that seeks to address this imbalance by creating Africa’s first “biobank,” a massive database of voluntarily collected genetic samples from across the continent that will provide insights for research into various diseases that affect Africans. 54gene is working with some of the continent’s largest hospitals and hopes to have over 40,000 participants by the end of 2019.

Ra�fy The

Pan-African Parliament

Protocol Africa Aspires For! - ‘A Parliament with competence to pass legisla�on, with meaningful supervisory powers over other African Union (AU) ins�tu�ons and a legislature that embodies ci�zens’ presence and par�cipa�on in African legisla�ve processes’. The Crucial Protocol! - The PAP originated with the Abuja Treaty (1991) which called for the establishment of a parliament to ensure Africans are fully involved in the economic development and integra�on of the con�nent. The Sirte Declara�on (1999) repeated the call which prompted the adop�on of the Protocol Rela�ng to the Treaty Establishing the African Economic Community Rela�ng to the Pan-African Parliament was adopted on 2 March 2001 at the OAU Summit in Sirte, Libya; and which entered into force on 14 December 2003. The Parliament’s first session was held on March 2004. The Malabo Protocol was adopted at the AU Assembly of Heads of State and Government mee�ng in 2014 and is intended to extend the powers of the PAP into a fully-fledged legisla�ve organ. Representa�on! - The Parliament has up to 270 members represen�ng the 55 AU Member States (five Parliamentarians per country, including at least one woman and reflec�ng the diversity of poli�cal opinions in their na�onal parliament or delibera�ve organ). This propor�onate representa�on gives smaller countries the same rights, access and opportunity to be heard and par�cipate in the affairs of the African Union. Towards the Full Mandate! - A�er 15 years, PAP s�ll has consulta�ve, advisory and budgetary oversight powers within the AU but lacks the mandate to func�on as a full Legislature. 28 ra�fica�ons are required for the Protocol to enter into force. A complete process involves: (1) Signing, (2) Ra�fying and (3) Deposi�ng Instruments at the African Union Commission. RATIFICATION of the PAP / MALABO PROTOCOL is an OPPORTUNITY... 1) To have a Parliament with full legisla�ve as opposed to current consulta�ve and advisory powers. 2) To accelerate the African con�nental integra�on process. 3) To have Con�nental Parliamentarians who are elected by direct universal suffrage. 4) For individuals to aim for elec�on as con�nental parliamentarians. 5) For elected members to focus solely on driving the con�nental agenda. 6) To provide real power for a con�nental Parliament to play a crucial role in the promo�on of the principles of human rights, good governance and accountability in the Member States. 7) To promote the harmonisa�on of policies of the AU Member States. “The fulfilment of the ambi�ons of the African Union demands the involvement of the African peoples in the affairs of the ins�tu�on. From this viewpoint, the Western Algeria Pan-African Parliament occupies a very special place in Sahara the ins�tu�onal architecture of our Union. This Mali Parliament is by excellence, the organ responsible for Mauritania Chad Sudan Djibouti conveying the concerns of our people and ensure that Gambia Guinea_Bissau their needs are taken into considera�on.” Guinea H.E Moussa Faki MAHAMAT, Sierra Central Cameroon African Leone Benin Chairperson of the African Union Commission.

The Habesha Journey If it’s your first time flying Ethiopian, and you ask for a local beer, you will get your hands on a beer that is dubbed the ‘Cold Gold’ beer of Ethiopia. It is prominently identifiable by its black and gold branding with a traditional Ethiopian face. ‘Habesha’ is the name of the beer but it means so much more than a beer. Habesha is a term Ethiopians use to refer to themselves; a term of pride which is used to describe diversity and celebrate unity as people of the same region. The story of Habesha Breweries S.C. began when it was founded in 2009 by 8,000 proud Ethiopian shareholders who had a mission of building and running an efficient customeroriented business that will deliver the most sought after beverage brands to Ethiopians. As a result, Habesha has successfully connected with Ethiopians everywhere; even those outside of Ethiopia.

As the export of the beer is far reaching in distant lands, you can grab a couple of bottles with your meals in Ethiopian/Eritrean Restaurants and Bars in and around the DMV area (Washington DC, Montgomery County/ Maryland and Virginia) and the State of Georgia.

Boost Your Moments with a refreshingly chilled Negus Malt!

Gursha is an Amharic word for a mouthful bite of ‘injera’ with ‘wot’ that you feed to someone while sharing an Ethiopian meal. We’re sure you will experience this if you’re enjoying Ethiopian food for the first time. Washing it down with some Habesha of course!



exaggeration to state that this company set the standard for the way products were advertised in Ethiopia.

Although a huge challenge for breweries to source all raw materials and packaging, going local is a sustainability priority for Habesha Breweries. In addition to sourcing malt barley from local farmers, it has avidly worked towards sourcing all other materials from Ethiopia.

Cases of cans and bottles of Habesha can be picked up from a nearby Costco, 7-Eleven and other local markets in the DMV to take home and indulge with friends and family. If your final distination is somewhere in Europe, Habesha can be enjoyed in Ethiopian/Eritrean Restaurants/bars in Germany, Holland, Sweden, United Kingdom, France, Italy and Switzerland. Habesha has also been made available through wholesalers in the Netherlands and the United States. Habesha’s brand has worked tirelessly for the ‘togetherness’ spirit for the last 4 years. As one of the youngest breweries in the country, it became the underdog among competition but rose above the quality standards of beer that many had anticipated. During the past years, Habesha has achieved competitive market leadership in many of the locations that it can be found as a result of its high quality taste and impeccable branding. Celebrated for raising the Ethiopian identity, Habesha has positioned itself as a daring force and a recent favorite. TV Commercials were the most powerful tool that Habesha used when it first started promoting its beer. It wouldn’t be an

Upon your visit in Ethiopia, you can’t possibly pass without seeing our beverages in hotels, restaurants and local bars where you will be staying or enjoying time for a couple of hours. If alcohol is not your favorite choice, Habesha’s second brand, Negus, a recent entrant into the market, might be for you. Negus is a full bodied alcohol free dark malt drink which can be consumed at anytime of the day and has a combination of coffee, tenadam and other natural flavors. It is a refreshing drink that can serve as an alternative to soft drinks. Hoping your stay in this historic country is nothing short of being memorable, we hope you get to explore the fine taste of this lager beer and/or malt drink and get to talk about it upon your return back home.

Since its first brew made it to the market in July 2015, Habesha has been growing its volume, capacity and sales reach for the last 4 years. Habesha celebrated their 4th year anniversary with something that left a lasting legacy and contribute positively to the environment. On July 13, 2019 the Habesha family (Staff, Ethiopian Coffee Football Club fans, Consumers, Agents and Brand Ambassadors) planted trees at the Entoto Mountain as a celebration of growth and success with a promise to plant and grow more for many years to come.






Munich, Germany, is home to one of the most famous outdoor festivals in the world: Oktoberfest. Travelers from far and wide descend on this historic city to celebrate all the best that Germany has to offer. Namely, excellent food, entertainment, and, most importantly, beer.



MUNICH’S HISTORY The abundance of German beer is the most well-known element of Oktoberfest. This is unsurprising since beer, for centuries, has been an important part of the cultural heritage of both Munich and Bavaria. The name Munich comes from the word München, meaning “home of the monks.” In the year 725, Saint Korbinian, along with 12 traveling companions, founded a Benedictine monastery. By 768, a hops garden had been established in the grounds and the resident monks set about honing their craft, making some of the finest beer around. Over the centuries, the city became a valuable trading center, leading to the development of local institutions like libraries, museums, and exhibits, many of which are still in use today. One of Munich’s most unique points is how the city was rebuilt after World War II. Unlike other regions in Germany, who razed their damaged buildings to the ground to start afresh, the citizens of Munich decided to restore what was left to its former glory. Today, visitors can enjoy many historic buildings that would otherwise have been replaced.



OKTOBERFEST - ROOTS AND ORIGINS The original Oktoberfest happened over 200 years ago in 1810. The Crown Prince Ludwig (who later became King) married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. The wedding took place on October 12th, and for days afterwards, the locals were invited to eat, drink and be merry, and enjoy parades involving kettle drums and music, shooting displays and a horse race around a meadow on the edge of town. Such a good time was had by all that it was decided to stage the race (and the accompanying indulgences) every year. This year marks the 186th year of the festival, making it one of the oldest continuous celebrations in Europe.

Some interesting facts about Oktoberfest: • Albert Einstein worked as part of the setup crew for Oktoberfest in 1896. • The only beer served comes from Munich breweries as a celebration of Bavarian traditions. • The fields where Oktoberfest is held is named after Ludwig’s wife. They are called the Theresienwiese (Therese’s fields). • Since 1950, the festival officially begins when the mayor of Munich offers the first beer to the MinisterPresident of Bavaria. Until then, no one can raise their glass. • Over six million people visit Oktoberfest each year, making it the largest outdoor festival in the world. • In 2011, the record for most beer consumed was set with a staggering 7.5 million pints. • Although Oktoberfest is internationally recognized, more than 80% of visitors are still local Germans.


or those who want to experience Oktoberfest in all its glory, here is everything you need to know about this unique festival.

When is Oktoberfest? The name of this festival is a bit misleading. While the first Oktoberfest took place in October, the locals changed the starting date to midSeptember to capitalise on the warm weather. In 2019, the dates for Oktoberfest are 21st September to 6th October.

Weather Although the festival takes place at the beginning of autumn, the conditions are usually pleasant and warm enough for sitting outside in one of the many beer gardens. Occasionally, it may rain, but most of the festivities are under cover. The nights can get a little cold, so bring some extra layers just in case.

Dress Code Many festival-goers wear casual clothes. However, for those feeling the Bavarian spirit, traditional Oktoberfest clothing is a must. For men, this means wearing lederhosen and a hat. For women, the dress is called a drindl, made up of a blouse, an apron, and a bodice.

Crowds To avoid fighting the crowds, arrive early to the Theresienwiese. However, beer is usually served after 12, so plan accordingly. There are many different tents, food stalls, and rides to experience, and each of them can get filled up fast. Plan a route ahead of time to avoid getting lost.



For many visitors, experiencing such a large and crowded event can be a bit overwhelming. We suggest the following tips to ensure that everything goes smoothly.



• Pack light. Large bags are not allowed in the festival so only bring essentials.

• Bring cash. Although many tents accept cards, cash is usually preferred. Also, cards are not allowed at all stands, so it helps to have a backup.


Oktoberfest Top Tips

• Agree meeting spots. Oktoberfest is best celebrated with friends, but not everyone will stay together. Plan meeting times and locations in advance to ensure no one gets left behind.

• Budget more than anticipated. Oktoberfest can be expensive, with beers and attractions costing between 9-12 euros each. Also, plan on buying souvenirs to take home.

• Keep a steady pace. It’s easy to overdo it at Oktoberfest. Best to think of it as a marathon, not a sprint.



Munich is one of Germany’s crown jewels, thanks to its rich history and Bavarian culture. When most people think of old-fashioned German architecture, food, and experiences, Munich is at the heart of it all. The city has a perfect blend of tradition and modern aesthetics, making it a fascinating place to visit. Although Oktoberfest is the most well-known attraction in Munich, the city still has plenty to offer, meaning that travelers can expand their horizons without having to go far.

Food and Beverage Viktualienmarkt This massive farmers’ market boasts the best local produce and home-cooked food that the city has to offer. Some of the best cheeses, beer, and soft pretzels can be found here, meaning that tourists can experience the taste of Bavaria all in one place. A few of the notable foods available here and elsewhere in Munich include: • Bavarian Pretzel - the • Kaiserschmarrn original soft pretzel named after Kaiser originated in this region.

Park Café The city is dotted with various beer gardens and pubs. One of the most notable is Park Café, where locals dine on the best of Munich, as well as take in live shows and entertainment. There’s also a nightclub for those wanting to see in the early hours.




What to Do in Munich Outside of Oktoberfest



Bavarian Alps For those looking to be at one with nature, the mountains are remarkably close. Whether it’s a day trip or a multi-day excursion, visitors can climb and explore to their heart’s content. Be sure to ride the cable car to get a magnificent view of the area. Many visitors like to go to the AlpspiX, a large viewing platform situated over 1,000 feet above the ground.

Olympic Stadium and Village One of Munich’s claims to fame is the 1972 Olympics. Although the event was marred by terrorists, the remains of the Olympic structures are still a testament to German engineering and ingenuity.

Kunstareal (Art District) The city is home to many avant-garde artists, and Kunstareal, known as the ‘Museum Quarter’, is the best place to see their work on display. Some of Southern Germany’s finest art museums can be found here, showcasing pieces which are both captivating and inspiring.

Selam, Ethiopia!



There is no better time to visit Cape Town, than now. With Ethiopian Airlines offering almost daily flights from Addis Ababa, access to South Africa’s Parliamentary Capital is now a mere flight away.

Welcome! We invite you to share in the blessings of this wonderful country of ours. Allow us to introduce you to our places of wonder – places that not only fill us with great pride, but that take our breath away time and time again. Allow us to share our favourite hangouts, restaurants, markets, hidden treasures and historical sites, that tell our rich cultural stories. Found along South Africa’s south western coast, Cape Town – or the Mother City as it is fondly known - is the second-largest city after Johannesburg. It is home to Robben Island, Table Mountain, scenic winelands, magnificent beaches, world-class restaurants and cosmopolitan lifestyles. A trip to Cape Town is incomplete if you don’t visit one of the city’s two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Robben Island. UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee chose to mark this location for its “triumph of the human spirit”. Guided tours are offered by former prisoners, who give you a firsthand account of life on the island. Catch a ferry ride to “The Robben Island Museum”. The standard tour starts at the Nelson Mandela Gateway at the V&A Waterfront and the

tour will take around 3.5 hours in total (the boat ride is half-an-hour one way). The V&A Waterfront is situated in the heart of Cape Town, where the mountain meets the sea, and it has been a working harbour since 1860, when trade routes to the East transformed the seafront into a lucrative trading post. The V&A Waterfront is home to 450 retail outlets which offer everything from homeware and fashion to electronic gadgets and curios from local and international brands alike. And if the shopping becomes too much, you can enjoy some of the many other activities on offer. These include seal watching; a visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium or the Maritime Museum; boat trips around the harbour and along the coast; or an exciting helicopter tour!

Eating out in Cape Town is easy - the city’s natural abundance of land and sea combined with cultural diversity ensure that there are menus to suit all palates, religious dietary requirements and price ranges. However, if it’s a home away from home meal you crave, then the Little Ethiopia Restaurant, owned by Ethiopian national Yeshi Mekonnen on Shortmarket Street will soothe you with divine servings of fresh injera, shiro, tibs, doro wot and vegetarian dishes.

the beat of the continent follows – whether it’s a nightclub in Cape Town’s Long Street, an African jazz concert in the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens or the thump of a township ghetto blaster – it is an eclectic meeting of colorful people, contagious energy and endless appeal. We South Africans can’t live without some kind of catchy beat in the background.

But, you’d be missing out if you didn’t try our homegrown cuisine – we’re talking about a good old fashioned braaivleis (barbequed meat) or chisa nyama with all the trimmings, a Cape Malay curry to make your heart sing or an enormous platter of piri piri prawns served up with a view of the ocean. And when it comes to song and dance, you’d be hard pressed not to feel the rhythm of Africa when you visit our shores. Wherever you go,

Getting here Ethiopian Airlines offers daily flights from Addis Ababa to Cape Town. Tourists from Ethiopia require a visa when travelling to South Africa. If you are travelling with minors (18 years old and younger) please be sure to visit the SA Embassy website to ensure you have the correct documentation prior to applying for your travel visa.

Languages English is the primary language, widely spoken as a first, second or third language here! But to really get a feel of our people and our way of life, try using the local slang like “lekker” (nice); “yebo” (yes); and “Mzansi” (a popular local term for South Africa).

Where to stay From Cape Town’s waterfront hotels to luxury apartments along the beachfront, a variety of star graded accommodation options are available to suit all preferences and budgets. Visit the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa’s website for a catalogue of all quality assured establishments in Cape Town

Getting around There are many welcoming and accredited tour operators who can assist you with all your land arrangements. Alternatively, you may hire a car at the airport car rental offices.

The City with its vibrant, fascinating and rich history, culture and heritage; is ready to be explored, photographed, loved and remembered by you and your family. Cape Town is where you will enjoy so much more, for far less than you thought possible. Malkam guzo yehunelachu.

Gorillas in the Midst

How Uganda is winning the battle to save its mountains gorillas – and where to spot the great ape




By Terry Adby





to beds. Numerous roadside stalls sell just two products - sweet potatoes and tilapia fish. Maribou storks eye butchers’ carcasses hanging in the breeze. Improvised locust traps harvest one of the fastest of foods. There is woodwork, wickerwork and pottery. Hand-made bricks smoke in cauldronlike kilns. Rough quarries and neat tea estates are worked by hand. Animals range from zebras to the culturally important Ankole long-horned cattle. In Queen Elizabeth National Park, the sights keep coming. Hatching white ants are gathered by local people for seasonal feasting, and scoffed on sight by birds, baboons and monitor lizards. In Kyambura Gorge, we track fast-moving chimps along the banks of the hippo-infested jungle river. Beneath our feet squirm giant millipedes and in the treetops perch colobus monkeys, like eagles ready to strike. And yet – surprise, surprise – nothing prepares you for meeting (well, almost) the biggest star in Uganda’s wildlife pantheon, the mountain gorilla - ‘gorilla beringei beringei’- eight metres away, and blissfully unaware of his role as a symbol of the might and fragility of the natural world. You hold your breath with good reason. Placid but powerful, he can lift ten times his body weight, and strike with devastating speed.


A 200-kilogram mountain gorilla should not be difficult to spot. But there’s one right next to us in the bushes of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and, were it not for the expertise of our local trackers, we wouldn’t even know. For such an iconic animal, this massive silverback, the leader of the Nshongi group – one of 14 gorilla families tourists can visit in the park – is surprisingly elusive. Uganda, however, is full of surprises. They begin in Entebbe, on the lush shores of Lake Victoria, which is low-key, and cooled by the largest tropical lake on earth. Its attractions include vibrant birdlife, where red kites, kingfishers, weavers, fisheagles, lapwing, squacco herons, African jacanas, hamerkops and blue-breasted bee-eaters are all upstaged by the massive and primeval-looking shoebill, lurking among the papyrus of the lake’s Mabamba Swamp. There are flights from Entebbe, but the road to Bwindi Impenetrable, at the edge of the Rift Valley in the country’s south-west, offers a window into Ugandan life - and an unmissable photo opportunity crossing the Equator. Trade and transportation are everywhere, and anything can be carried on two wheels it seems, from bananas

Hearts pounding, we observe the , silverback s huge bulk

Mountain gorillas don’t survive in captivity, and this park in the Kigezi Highlands hosts one of only two populations in the world. Mists shroud its 25,000-year-old rainforest, a World Heritage Site of no less than 400 plant species, 300 bird species and 200 different butterflies. We had met early at Rushaga Gate, the still forest morning disturbed only by tropical birdsong, as the rangers prepared for another day protecting the gorillas and hosting their visitors. They operate on conservation’s frontline. To find our appointed family, we plunged into the gorillas’ sanctuary, sliding down into a verdant flat-bottomed valley crisscrossed with hidden trails through ‘impenetrable’ foliage. Thick with spindly plants and watery mud containing worms the size of small snakes, at times just staying upright was a challenge. After 90 minutes’ toil, crossing fast-flowing streams on slippery logs, we ascended through steep forest to meet our trackers. They had already located the group, and we would spend one hour with them. Mountain gorillas travel by day, foraging for fruits and plants, like bamboo, thistle and wild celery; by night they sleep in a fresh nest in a new location. The trackers find them each morning, virtually guaranteeing tourists a sighting. “There he is! Can you see?!” Hearts pounding, we can just observe the silverback’s huge bulk amid the shrubs, trees and roots as he chews mouthfuls of his daily diet of 60 pounds of vegetation. He and his ‘habituated’ family have been made accustomed to seeing humans as non-threatening – as long as people behave, there will be no problem. The silverback heads the family, dictating where they travel, rest and eat. Just at the moment it’s the eating he’s focussed on. We stumble silently around in the forest, trying to get a peek or picture, as he lazes, grunts and grazes, unperturbed by us. ‘He’s the daddy’ and he acts like it.






After ten minutes, completely unmoved by his uninvited guests, he rouses his rippling, muscular, silvery-backed frame, and slinks away to a tall tree. In seconds, he slides gracefully up its trunk to the high branches, to take a seat – and carry on eating. Bwindi’s gorillas climb more than others for food and, when they do, it’s a graceful display of controlled strength. The troop are dotted around, detectible from roars, grunts, cries and less savoury sounds associated with a high-volume vegetarian diet. But soon adult females and smaller males move in, some shinning down trunks to investigate our presence. The forest ground is tricky, but they move easily over it. Following at a distance, we pass directly beneath the silverback perched on a narrow branch above. Ahead I can make out a female’s face in bushes. She’s staring skywards, her gaze one that can only be described as contemplative. It’s hard to get a good stance, let alone a good picture. I prepare for a shot of another female lounging in an armchair



of vegetation but instead, camera in hand, I pirouette backwards and disappear downhill into the bushes. The smiling tracker hauls me out in time to see the same female playfully rolling headfirst into the undergrowth. I’ve just been aped by a gorilla. Youngsters appear, one 18 months old, the other aged three. The trackers know them well. Their heads bob in and out of the foliage, but soon it’s



time for some serious attention-seeking. Some gymnastics does the trick, out-climbing each other, swinging on branches until they snap, plunging into the undergrowth for fun. The youngest balances on a bough to beat his little chest but falls off after three and disappears below again. He’s soon back for more. Chest-beating is an important defensive gesture for these gorillas’ future, and a reminder that, thankfully, they have one. The hour flies by. Returning through the forest, what we have witnessed feels increasingly precious – wild animals, living wild. But even in this managed setting, these remain the most endangered of all gorillas.


Gorilla facts: The gorillas live over 2,000 metres up but are poorly acclimatised - they hate rain. However, they’ve developed bigger chests and nostrils, for better breathing, and larger guts for digesting the food volumes necessary to thrive here. They can live to 50, males breeding from around 15, females by 10. Young males are black-backs, but go gradually grey, hence “silverback.” Groups commonly comprise around ten individuals, mixing silverbacks, younger males, adult females and infants. Gorillas walk on all fours but can stand to 1.8 metres. Males typically weigh 200-250 kilos, females around 100 kilos. Gorillas are gentle and family-centric but, even if habituated, may be aggressive if threatened. They communicate by facial expressions, sounds, postures and gestures. They have unique nose-prints, like human fingerprints, with DNA 97.7% the same in structure as for humans. Batwa People: The Batwa pygmies who harmoniously shared the gorillas’ habitat were displaced when the park was created. Tourists can accompany Batwa into the forest to learn how they survived.

Historically, pressure from people forced gorillas up the mountains, making ‘mountain gorillas’ to some extent ‘man-made.’ Those pressures continue: subsistence farming destroying habitat; so-called ‘development’; poaching (gorillas often suffer from traps targeting other animals); charcoal production and human conflict. Even gorilla tourism carries a health warning. Introduced by researchers to save the gorillas, visitors bring a constant risk of human disease transmission, and habituation, by definition, makes gorillas lose their instinctive fear of people. But overall this is a stunning story of conservation success. Essential habitat gets protected; guides, trackers and porters earn a living; local communities enjoy benefits, including a cut of tracking permit income; and the visitors keep coming. Census returns suggest total mountain gorilla numbers could now be as high as 1,000 for the first time since counting began. It proves the right kind of tourism, managed in the right way, can give endangered wildlife a chance. Gorilla tracking can be physically and even emotionally demanding. Our short trek left me feeling exhausted, but also deeply satisfied. It’s not everywhere you can go face-to-face with an iconic animal - and help to save the species. That could be Uganda’s best surprise of all.

The Tariff concessions: It has been agreed that there should be 90% tariff liberalisation and the deadline is 1st July 2020. (Over a 10 year period with a 5 year transition, there will be an additional 7 % for “sensitive products” that must be liberalised). This will be supported by the AfCFTA Trade in Goods online portal where Member States will upload their tariff offers covering 90% of the tariff lines.

Export-Import Bank, Afreximbank will facilitate payments as well as formalise some of the unrecorded trade due to prevalence of informal cross-border trade in Africa. It will also provide alternative to current high-cost and lengthy correspondent banking relationships to facilitate trade and other economic activities among African countries through a simple, low-cost and risk-controlled payment clearing and settlement system. The benefits of PAPPS for cross-border payments include cost reduction; reduction in duration and time variability; decreasing liquidity requirements of commercial banks; decreasing liquidity requirements of central banks for settlement as well as its own payments; and strengthening Central Banks’ oversight of cross border payment systems.

With 54 out of the 55 member states of the African Union signing the agreement, Africa brought into being the largest trading block since the formation of the WTO. The entry into force of the AfCFTA is also marked by the speed at which African countries worked together within a year to establish a regional trading block to promote intra-African trade following the adoption of the AfCFTA on 21 March 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda Following the ratification and entry into force of the AfCFTA, 5 supporting Operational Instruments were launched during the AU Summit held in Niamey, Niger in July 2019. These instruments are the key tools that will support the launch of the operational phase of the AfCFTA with start of trading scheduled for July 2020. The occasion also marked the announcement of the Republic of Ghana as the country to host the AfCFTA Secretariat.

The tool will be accessible to all parties to assist in their negotiations and will be a collaborative platform to exchange the lists of products defined at the tariff line level as well as the tariff that could be applied. The tool will allow each party to:- define their own product lists; share lists with selected parties for discussion; comment on shared lists; and suggest counter proposals. In order to facilitate the creation of initial product lists, a module will analyse various factors among which are:- fiscal revenues; employment by sector; production; potential trade; existing tariffs; commitments; and Infant industries. Based on this methodology, the tool will automatically suggest product lists as a potential starting point for negotiation, taking into account the tariff-dismantling schedules. 3.

The Continental Online Tool/Mechanism for monitoring, reporting and elimination of Non-tariff Barriers (NTBs): (NTBs) are a greater hindrance to intra-African Trade than Tariff Barriers. One of the key objectives of the AfCFTA is to progressively eliminate existing NTBs and refrain from introducing new ones in order to enhance and facilitate intra Africa trade. The Continental tool will ensure NTBs are monitored with a view to ensuring they are eliminated.

The African Trade Observatory: A trade information portal that will address hindrances to trade in Africa due to lack of information about opportunities, trade statistics as well as information about exporters and importers in countries.

The lack of up-to-date and reliable trade data and statistics is one of the contributing factors to the low level of official intra-African trade. Instances abound of goods and services, which could have been sourced from other African countries being imported by African countries. According to ITC (2018), more than 40% of African companies identify lack of access to information and absence of inquiry points as factors affecting the business environment across the continent. Whereas, a number of African countries and Regional Economic Communities (RECs) have established trade information portals and systems several challenges remain such as: outdated information; uniformity of data; absence of data and information on non-tariff measures and informal trade and limited collaboration between various government agencies as well as countries and RECs. The trade observatory will act as a central repository providing exhaustive qualitative and quantitative trade data and information at the continental level to enable policymakers and the private sector to make evidenced-based policies and business decisions.

security architecture. In reference to Peace Support Operations, since 2002, the AU and its Regional Economic Communities and Regional Mechanisms have demonstrated a clear comparative advantage in missions where offensive operations are needed and the United Nations is unable to deploy; and in situations where the UN Security Council is unable to mobilise the requisite political consensus to initiate action. The high cost and complexity of AU Peace Support Operations places a premium on greater investment in the component of Mediation, Preventive Diplomacy and Institutional Capacity. The AU has developed significant institutional capacity over the past decade to undertake early warning analysis and conflict prevention buildiong up an impressive toolbox for prevention and peace making. These include the Continental Early Warning System, the Panel of the Wise, Special Envoys, and ad hoc mediation panels, often comprised of sitting and former Heads of State. The AU also has experience in deploying liaison offices and “special political missions” in countries at risk of, or emerging from, conflict.

A peaceful and secure environment is an imperative for the attainment of any socio-economic agenda and the African Union has devised strategies that respond to the evolving complex nature of conflicts and crisis in the continent including implementation of sustainable funding for peace and security activities. The AU has made commendable progress in its domestic resource mobilisation agenda through the implementation of the 0.2% levy on eligible imports to finance 100% operational budget, 75% program budget and 25% budget of the peace support operations of the AU. The 25% budget allocation for peace support operations will finance activities that evolve around mediation and preventive diplomacy; institutional capacity; and peace support operations. Mr. Moussa Faki Mahamat, Chairperson of the AU Commission underscores the critical importance for member states to implement the decision on financing of the Union, noting with regard to the Peace Fund, that “it is crucial to attain the objectives set and to secure sustainable funding for this tool on the basis of the assessed contributions. It is on this condition that we shall be able to ensure African ownership and continental leadership that we are constantly claiming.” The AU’s proven ability to act as ‘first responder’ is a critical element of the evolving international peace and

Not to fund our peace efforts in a more substantial way would be tantamount to entrusting others with the essential levers of the continental sovereignty. H.E. Moussa Faki Mahamat, Chairperson of the African Union Commission.

The urgency of implementing the domestic resource mobilisation decision illustrates the shared African solution towards the realisation of Aspiration 4 of Agenda 2063 which underscores the need for dialogue-centered conflict prevention, as well as the management and resolution of existing conflicts, with a view to Silencing the Guns in our continent by 2020. The Peace Fund, replenished through financial appropriations from the regular AU budget, is also able to accept contributions from other sources within Africa, including the private sector, civil society, donations from individuals, and through appropriate fundraising activities. The Peace Fund has for many years been highly dependent on external partners which has greatly impacted the AU’s ability to independently manage its peace and security priorities.

PEACE FUND In 2017 and 2018, member states contributed about US$ 89 million, the highest level of contributions to the Peace Fund since its establishment in 1993.

When the endowment reaches its full strength, Africa will be in a strong position to drive the continent’s peace and security agenda toward the most appropriate solutions. As you know, Africa is pursuing a resolution at the United Nations Security Council to provide stable funding for African Union peace support operations. The re-launched Peace Fund is a critical piece of that architecture. H.E. Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda speaking at the launch of the African Union Peace Fund in November 2018 ••• donor financing channels led to fragmentation and high transaction costsrelated to the numerous reporting requirements. However, the changing tides in Africa’s resolve towards domestic resource mobilisation saw 2017 and 2018 register the highest level of contributions to the peace fund since its establishment in 1993. 50 Member States made their contributions to the Peace Fund amounting to US$ 89 million. Against a target of US$130 million (US$65 million each for 2017 and 2018), member states have as of February 2019 contributed about US$ 89 million, representing 68% of the funds expected. At the conception of the Peace Fund, Member States were expected to contribute US$400 million by 2021, gradually from an anticipated amount of US$325 million in 2017.

The AU Peace Fund Board of Trustees In January 2018, a Board of Trustees made up of five African members representing the 5 AU Regions and two international partners, was established. The Board members. • Zainab Ahmed (Minister of finance, Nigeria) Tito Mboweni (Minister of Finance, South • Africa) Anicet Dologuele (Former Prime Minister, • Central African Republic) Kamel Morjane (Former Minister of Foreign • Affairs, Tunisia) • Elene Makonnen (Senior Advisor, multilateral organizations, Ethiopia) In addition to these African members, the European Union and the United Nations will occupy two seats on the Peace Fund Board that have been allocated for international partners. The role of the Board of Trustees is to ensure strategic coherence and enhanced governance, financial and administrative oversight of the Peace Fund. Additional elements have been

factored in the governance and management structure which elaborate on the Independent Evaluation Panel that regularly reviews the effectiveness and impact of the Fund; the Executive Management Committee which provides a strategic management oversight of the Fund; a Fund Manager who manages the finances; and a Peace Fund Secretariat that manages the day to day operations of the Fund. Dr. Donald Kaberuka and the AU Commission are undertaking regional consultations on the scale of assessment for the Peace Fund and will report back to the Executive Council in July 2019 in Niamey, Niger for the consideration and adoption of the new scale of assessment for the Peace fund. Currently, member states are funding the peace fund on the basis of the existing scale of assessment for the regular budget. Enhancing multilateralism to Silence the Guns by 2020. Africa cannot achieve its development agenda in isolation. While AU Member States are primarily responsible for financing the Peace Fund, partnerships will continue to play a vital role in supporting peace and security activities of the African Union. Deepening cooperation with partners, both traditional and emerging ones is therefore imperative. The AU has developed critical partnerships within the framework of the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) to develop innovative ways to respond to the continent’s peace and security challenges. Women and children bear the blunt of humanitarian crisis emanating from conflict and instability and the AU has ensured greater involvement and engagement of women in the conflict resolution for sustainable peace through initiatives such as Network of African Women in Conflict Prevention & Mediation (FemWise). Overall, peace and security in Africa will only be achieved through effective and committed leadership and greater local and global cooperation. Better coordination and synchronisation of efforts by stakeholders to avoid silo efforts and duplication as well as the threat of reversing the gains accumulated are equally as important.

KidZania The educational theme park where kids play at being adults


t’s the latest kids’ phenomenon to hit the earth. One of the fastest growing children’s entertainment brands in the world. A collection of mini cities across the globe, which share their own unique language, money and rules. Unlike the thrills, spills and roller coaster rides of an average theme park, this is all about role-playing in a simulated reality. The KidZanian Declaration of Independence sets the scene with the six ‘rightz’ of childhood: to be, to know, to create, to share, to care, and to play. It concludes with the national motto: ‘Get ready for a better world.’ This better world is played against a backdrop of brick-paved boulevards, dotted with fake trees, public sculptures and storefronts – all lavishly-realised and scaled down to two-thirds of the actual size. Education is at the heart of it. Here, the children can train for or undertake a variety of real-life jobs for which they earn or spend kidZos – the fantasy world’s currency. But this is not just about careers and the importance of training. Much to parents’ delight, these activities come with the learning of numeracy, communication, value 52


of money and the fact that it needs to be earned. Furthermore, the experience also teaches children about self-direction, decision-making and productivity. Aimed at four to 14-year-olds, KidZania is adept at keeping both parent and child happy. Kids are electronically tagged with a bracelet that tracks them. This means that while the children play, the grown-ups, safe in the knowledge that their offspring are in good hands,

can go off shopping (or settle down in one of the comfortable lounges provided). Indeed, the Dubai park just won a safety award. The KidZania experience begins with the arrival hall, which resembles an airport check-in desk and a 60-foot A319 fuselage – the airline pertains to the country. Led by the staff (the KidZania word is “zupervisors”), each job activity takes around 20 minutes. There’s everything here from courier to surgeon to stylist

in a multitude of workplaces including operating theaters, plane cockpits, restaurants, radio stations and theaters. The kids start with 50 kidZos and they can earn more by ‘working’ or spend on learning a craft. For example, training to be a firefighter costs eight kidZos for training. The session sees the child don a yellow hat and firefighter coat and watch a video about the basics of fire safety. Then an emergency bell rings out, alerting the crew to a fire on the other side of the square. The miniature firefighters pile into the tiny fire truck and speed (slowly) off to the disaster before putting out the fire (smoke and clever lighting) with real water. A troupe of police-kids set up a cordon, evacuate any grown-ups in the way and keep everyone in check. At the end of the day, the kids can spend their earnings at the KidZania department store or start a savings account in the KidZania bank. Corporate partners are key to KidZania’s success. To make it more authentic, immersive and enable kids understand the nature of work, each job is linked to a real-world corporation in each location. These partners pay to be part of KidZania and supply kit that adds to the verisimilitude – be it the mixing desk at the Capital radio station, kitchen equipment at Domino’s Pizzas, display mannequins at H&M or a bank account with HSBC. In some parks, Suzuki Motors offer driving tests complete with a driving instructor, rule learning and a driving simulator. There are over 800+ brand sponsors in total around the world, including Avis, Baskin Robins, Canon, Cartoon Network, Chevrolet, Clinique, CocaCola, Dunkin Donuts, Fuji Film, HP, McDonald’s, Mitsubishi, Nestlé, Oral B, Unilever, Sony, Spotify, Walmart and many more. Partners vary by facility featuring brands which are both locally and culturally relevant; In London, there’s surgeon’s training “patient” on the operating table of Alder Hey hospital (one of the UK’s largest children’s hospitals), in Seoul the kids can manufacture ramen noodles, and in Mumbai, there is a scaled-down Bollywood studio—spearheaded by' Shah Rukh Kahn, otherwise known as the ‘King of Bollywood’. Xavier Lopez Ancona is the man

behind it all. He is known as the ‘Mexican Walt Disney’ for the way he has carved out a new niche in the entertainment industry. Born in Mexico City in 1964, López obtained a degree in Management from Anahuac University in Mexico, and an MBA from the J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management of the Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. He then worked for four years as a company consultant in Booz Allen Hamilton’s office in Mexico City before taking on the role of Vice President of Equity for two years in GE Capital Mexico. In the late nineties, López was approached by a friend, Luis Javier Laresgoiti, who was in the toy-importing business. Laresgoiti was developing an idea for a commercial role-playing park for children. López joined the venture. However, in 2004, Laresgoiti decided to leave the business so Mr Lopez’s brother stepped in as his new investor and partner. Ancona’s hope is that the miniature world he has created will help prepare children for a more ‘socially responsible, less corrupt world which offers equal opportunities to all’. The idea of ‘performance with purpose’ (as Lopez puts it) caught on. The first KidZania – originally named ‘La Ciudad de los Ninos’ [The Kids’ City] – opened attached to Centro Santa Fe shopping center in Mexico City on September 1, 1999. As one of the largest in Latin America with over 22 million visitors a year, it proved a lucrative fit – and Kidzania was soon welcoming in the masses.

Capitalising on this success, Ancona turned to the idea of franchises. The first franchise was with a large restaurant group in Japan in October 2006 which triggered rapid growth throughout Asia with further franchises in countries including Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. The break into the European market came in June 2009 with the opening of a park in Lisbon. Six years later, the brand increased their offering, opening their European flagship in Westfield London in partnership with the entrepreneur Joel Cadbury (who is, perhaps appropriately, a member of the British chocolate dynasty). It’s also here that KidZania has hired its first Head of Education: former elementary-school teacher Richard Barry, who has been working with corporate sponsors to create activities that complement the U.K.’s national curriculum. For example, a smoothie-making activity, sponsored by Innocent Drinks, will underscore the curriculum’s requirement that children learn about nutrition, seasonality, and food sources. The parks cost up to $35m to build and admission costs range from around $15 in Mumbai to nearly $50 in Tokyo. The business has continued to expand rapidly. With 27 ‘metropolises’ in 21 countries, KidZania receives more than nine million visitors yearly, with 11 more facilities currently under development, including Paris, Johannesburg, Riyadh and New York. All kids dream of being adults. All adults dream of time off from their kids. Thanks to Ancona, these dreams have now been turned into reality. SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2019

Of course, Marseille is French and the city is in Provence but it is also a melting pot of cultures from across the Mediterranean. Since its founding in 600 B.C.—when, according to legend, a Phocéen sailor married a local Gallic girl, whose father gave them Marseille as a wedding gift—the city’s port has been shaped by centuries of immigration: Corsican sailors in the 1500s, Italian builders from the mid18th century, Armenians fleeing the genocide from 1915 onwards, Algerians arriving post-1962 independence, and many more, have settled here. Nowhere is the diversity more evident than in Marseille’s food and the city is celebrating its eats extra hard in 2019, a designated year of gastronomy.

Pungent grilled sardines, raw rust-red urchins, and briny oysters, and the many kinds of squid can all be enjoyed stripped back, served a la provençale—sautéed with garlic, parsley, and generous glugs of olive oil. The city’s signature dish is Bouillabaisse which has developed over the centuries as a one-pot meal in which poor fishermen threw rockfish – several species of sea creatures, and at one time unsellable – fresh off the docks into a large iron caldron of boiling fish stock to feed the family. True bouillabaisse includes at least four kinds of fish, and is served in two parts: the soupe de poisson (broth), rich with tomato, saffron and fennel; and the cooked fish, de-boned tableside and presented on a platter. On the side are croutons, rouille (a bread-thickened garlic-chilli mayonnaise) and grated cheese, usually Gruyère. The rouille is SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2019

And it’s no surprise that Marseille is being hailed as the world’s couscous capital, with a rich 2,000 year history as a crossroad between Europe and Africa, where couscous, one of the great staples of Mediterranean cooking, originated.

Integral to the local diet since Neapolitan immigrants arrived at the turn of the 20th century, the city was the site of France’s first pizza truck (around 1962). In this seafaring city, the classic pizza comes with anchovies. Or there’s moit-moit: half anchovy, half cheese or a ground beef and onion arménienne, a sign of the city’s sizeable Armenian community.

The beating heart of Noailles is Le Marché des Capucins where North African snacks, pastries and flatbreads jostle with fat olives and whole fish.

Or there’s pastis, which originated in Marseille, a cloudy anise-flavored spirit consisting of liquorice root, star anise from Asia and Mediterranean anise with a bouquet of Provencal herbs lending a distinctive tang to the mix. Just another intriguing reason to visit France’s unsung second city.



The Shadow King A Novel By Maaza Mengiste


n epic novel about the majesty and influence of women warriors during the Second Italo-Ethiopian War, The Shadow King is the second book from Maaza Mengiste, acclaimed author of Beneath the Lion’s Gaze. Published in September 2019, this gripping, exhilarating depiction of female warriors has already drawn high praise from luminaries including Salman Rushdie who remarked: ‘A brilliant novel, lyrically lifting history towards myth.

Rapping with a Purpose with award-winning grime artist Guvna B BY HAR R I E T CO M PSTO N


saac Charles Borquaye, known to Britain’s legion of hip-hop and grime fans as Guvna B, is fast becoming one of the most admired names in rap music. This 30-year-old has picked up two MOBO Awards, published his bestselling biography Unpopular Culture, collaborated with some of music’s biggest names and his latest album, Hands Are Made For Working, topped the mainstream charts. Guvna B, who lives in leafy Greenwich in South East London, grew up further east in Custom House. The son of Ghanaian parents who moved to England, he was surrounded by music from an early age with Motown, 80s’ songs and gospel often filling the house. Guvna B started rapping in the school playground at the age of 13 as a ‘bit of a joke’ but then realized that he had a talent for it. However, shortly afterwards, everything changed. He explains: ‘Faith was a big part of my upbringing. My parents took me to a Pentecostal church. When I was 15, my mum didn’t put me under pressure to attend anymore. So, I didn’t want to go unless I knew why I was going. This caused me to delve deeper into my faith and whether I actually believed



this stuff was true.’ It took a tragedy to convince him, when a school friend was struck by lightning and nearly died. ‘I had a strong feeling in my heart that it was God who came through for him. That was a key part in why I began to take my faith seriously.’ Guvna B's new-found faith transformed his life, including his music. He went from rapping about the ‘usual blingy stuff’ to putting out positive messages which were more reflective of his Christian lifestyle. He says: ‘Sometimes you’ve got to stand up in life and be true to yourself or risk getting lost in the crowd’. This change in tune worked. Guvna B went on to become the first rapper to top the official Christian and gospel charts in 2013 with his album Odd1Out. He has also shared the stage with Tinie Tempah and Destiny’s Child’s Michelle Williams and collaborated with Kingdom Choir, fresh from the recent Royal Wedding, on the single Cast Your Cares, which won Best Album and Best Song at the Premier Gospel Awards earlier this year. Guvna B is passionate about using his gift for good and encouraging the youth of today. He explains: ‘The big thing which changed my life was finding a purpose for it, through my

faith. For another person, it might be through something else but to have a reason to wake up in the morning is a game-changer. I don’t believe enough young people know that they have a purpose and something to give to the world’. Not stopping there, Guvna B also works with The Prince of Wales’ youth charity The Prince’s Trust, Power the Fight which tackles youth violence and is an ambassador for Tearfund, a Christian charity working to end poverty. His wife Emma, who also works for Tearfund, runs a charitable organisation called Girl Got Faith, which helps young girls with selfesteem issues. Alongside Guvna B’s music is his urban clothing brand ‘Allo Mate’. He says: ‘I went to New York and as soon as people heard my accent, they were super-friendly. They say hello to people in the subway. So, when I came back, I decided to try this and said ‘hello’ to someone on the tube. They moved carriages. I was like “ah, we need to be a bit friendlier here”. So, I said a line that began with ‘Allo Mate’ from one of my songs, people would often say it back to me so I turned it into a clothing line. It’s a great conversation starter when you are wearing it. People often say ‘what’s happening’ so it’s my little sprinkling of love and light in what can be a very busy life where people don’t interact with each other.’ Despite the British reserve, Guvna B is passionate about London. ‘There SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2019

are just so many different people from different backgrounds, different cultures. I think it is an exciting time because, yes, there is still discrimination, but more people are calling it out. I feel that is amazing for people on the fringes, people who feel like they don’t belong. Activism is alive and people are really fighting for issues which are important. There is now a freedom in being who you are and having a lot of pride in yourself, where you come from and what you represent. London is a great place to see change and connect with people.’ Although faith is at the heart of Guvna B’s life, family is the backbone. He says: ‘I am proud to be Ghanaian. About 18 months ago, I lost my dad which made me want to get more in touch with my roots. I am married to an English woman so our kids are going to be mixed race. It meant that if I didn’t get in touch with where I came from, I run the risk of diluting my heritage as my kids grow up’. So began a journey of discovery, starting with a trip to Ghana. ‘I went to my dad’s village which was amazing. It’s very important to me to know who paved the way for me, what sacrifices were made, the reasons why I have certain privileges now and can even be a rapper’. It was also his father who inspired the name of his current album. ‘He used to say “Your hands are made for working”. If you work hard then who knows what you can achieve. We had this saying “Pray as if it depends 62


Guvna B's latest album Hands are made for working

on God, work as if it all depends on you.” That’s the remaining force that I learnt from my parents and one which set me on the path to how I live my life today’. Guvna B is now having the chance to give fatherhood a go himself with his first child due this autumn. ‘Having a son is my way of continuing my dad’s legacy and having the opportunity to do for someone else what he did for me.’ Guvna B is currently working on his ninth album Everywhere and Nowhere. He explains: ‘it’s the idea of feeling that you’ve done so much with your life but still feel you haven’t done enough, talking about imposter syndrome and not feeling like you belong. I am really excited about it as I’ve been working with people like Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, a lot of great worship guys and some cool rappers.’ Guvna B is also launching a podcast, interviewing people about their experience of loss. ‘A lot of people reached out to me after my dad died, who were struggling with grief. There’s not a 10-step programme on how to deal with it, everyone deals with it in a different way but hearing other people’s stories can help.’ Just another example of Isaac living out his own lyrics: I know for a fact we can live better/Do better/Be better.
