His education is limited to a bachelor's degree in Islamic Law from King Saud University in Riyadh.
Africa


His education is limited to a bachelor’s degree in Islamic Law from
King Saud University in Riyadh.

The BND dossier blamed MBS and concluded that the concentration of
economic and foreign policy power in the hands of the Deputy Crown
Prince “harbors the latent risk that in the attempt of establishing
himself as the heir of the king during his father’s lifetime he will
overplay his cards.”

Saudi graft suspects are starting payments for their freedom, sources say
Africa


The payments, less than a month since the detentions, show the speed
at which Saudi Arabia wants to settle the corruption probe that
involved the sudden arrests of royals and billionaires such as Prince
Alwaleed bin Talal this month. The purge -- while welcomed by some in
Saudi Arabia -- has also stirred political uncertainty in the kingdom
at a time when Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is seeking to attract
international investment.

The government’s Center for International Communication didn’t
immediately respond to requests for comment.

Authorities estimate they may be able to recover between $50 billion
and $100 billion from settlement agreements with suspects, a senior
official said this week. Suspects are being offered settlements to
avoid trial, the Saudi official said. If they accept, talks are held
with a special committee to work out the details. Payments are based
on the amounts authorities believe suspects have amassed illegally,
not their entire wealth, the official said.

Prince Alwaleed was hung upside down 'just to send a message' @MailOnline
Africa


Saudi princes and billionaire businessmen arrested in a power grab
earlier this month are being strung up by their feet and beaten by
American private security contractors, a source in the country tells
DailyMail.com.
'They are beating them, torturing them, slapping them, insulting them.
They want to break them down,' the source told DailyMail.com.
The Saudi crown prince, according to the source, has also confiscated
more than $194 billion from the bank accounts and seized assets of
those arrested.
'All the guards in charge are private security because MBS (Mohammed
Bin Salman) doesn't want Saudi officers there who have been saluting
those detainees all their lives,' said the source, who asked to remain
anonymous.
'Outside the hotels where they are being detained you see the armored
vehicles of the Saudi special forces. But inside, it's a private
security company.
'They've transferred all the guys from Abu Dhabi. Now they are in
charge of everything,' said the source.
The source said that Salman, often referred to by his initials MBS, is
conducting some of the interrogations himself.
'When it's something big he asks them questions,' the source said.
'He speaks to them very nicely in the interrogation, and then he
leaves the room, and the mercenaries go in. The prisoners are slapped,
insulted, hung up, tortured.'

13-NOV-2017 :: Saudi Arabia and its allies UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait are caught in an ever tightening Shia pincer.
Law & Politics


Saudi Arabia and its allies UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait are caught in an ever
tightening Shia pincer. The paranoia in the palaces in Saudi Arabia is
real and existential. And what is also clear is that Bibi Netanyahu,
MBZ [the crown prince of Abu Dhabi], Jared Kushner and a Trump carte
blanche have all leveraged this existential paranoia to effect not a
state capture but a kingdom capture. The Guptas were a precursor for
this particular capture.

Putin Sees 'Real Chance' to End Syria War at Talks With Iran and Turkey @business
Law & Politics


Russian President Vladimir Putin said there’s a “real chance” to end
the 6 1/2 year civil war in Syria as he secured backing from his
Turkish and Iranian counterparts for a peace initiative that’s likely
to keep his ally Bashar al-Assad in power.

Putin’s summit talks with Iran’s Hassan Rouhani and Turkey’s Recep
Tayyip Erdogan in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on Wednesday came just
two days after he hosted Assad in a surprise visit. The Russian leader
also spoke to U.S. President Donald Trump and leaders of Qatar, Saudi
Arabia, Israel and Egypt as the Kremlin rallies international support
for its diplomatic drive.

“The militants in Syria have been dealt a decisive blow and a real
chance has appeared to bring an end to many years of civil war,” Putin
said, adding that a political settlement in Syria is now the
“strategic task.” The three leaders discussed Assad’s commitment to a
political process including a new constitution and the holding of free
and fair parliamentary and presidential elections, Putin said.

Exclusive: African leaders wanted Mugabe, an "embarrassment", to go - Zimbabwe intelligence
Law & Politics


The cable said Zuma told Zimbabwe’s longtime leader that Mnangagwa, a
former security chief known as ‘The Crocodile’, was a “tricky
customer” with “many lives” and that by taking him on Mugabe was
“playing with big fire”.

The plot posited an interim unity government with international

Mnangagwa's Task: Rebuild Zimbabwe's Economy From the Ground Up
Law & Politics


When Emmerson Mnangagwa takes over from Robert Mugabe as Zimbabwe’s
president on Friday, he’ll inherit an economic wasteland that will
take years and a complete reversal of some of the government’s
signature policies to set right.

Among Mnangagwa’s key challenges will be to revive an agricultural
industry that collapsed following the Mugabe-sanctioned seizure of
mostly white-owned commercial farms starting in 2000, unlock
investment in the mining industry by clarifying so-called
indigenization laws that force companies to sell or transfer 51
percent stakes to black Zimbabweans and reestablish international
credit lines.

“The quicker policy credibility is established, the more foreign
capital starts flowing,” said Hasnain Malik, head of equity research
at Exotix Capital in Dubai. “Many of the ingredients of a great
frontier market are in place in Zimbabwe. While there is much to be
done on the government wage bill, recapitalization of the economy and
the banking system, the starting point for investor expectations is
very low.”

At times he broke down, calling for his first wife, Sally, who died of

November 2014 "After the Arab Spring, this is the Black Spring".
Law & Politics


Martin Aglo, a law student from Benin, told Reuters: “After the Arab
Spring, this is the Black Spring”.

During the Arab Spring [now in the bleak mid-Winter], nearly all
commentators spoke of how this North African wildfire could not leap
the Sahara and head to sub-Saharan Africa. The reasons were that the
State [incumbents] had a monopoly on the tools of violence and would
bring overwhelming force and violence to bear.

We need to ask ourselves; how many people can incumbent shoot stone
cold dead in such a situation – 100, 1,000, 10,000? This is another
point: there is a threshold beyond which the incumbent can’t go. Where
that threshold lies will be discovered in the throes of the event.

Out of a population of 17 million people in Burkina Faso, over 60 per
cent are aged between 17 and 24 years, according to the World Bank,
and this is another point to note. The country’s youth flexed their
muscles. What’s clear is that a very young, very informed and very
connected African youth demographic [many characterise this as a
‘demographic dividend’] – which for Beautiful Blaise turned into a
demographic terminator – is set to alter the existing equilibrium
between the rulers and the subjects, and a re-balancing has begun.

Dollar dumped, bonds buoyant on Fed inflation caution Reuters
International Trade


The dollar’s rout came after minutes of the Fed’s last meeting showed
“many participants” were concerned inflation would stay below the
bank’s 2 percent target for longer than expected.

That echoed comments from Fed Chair Janet Yellen that she was
uncertain about the outlook for inflation and led markets to pare back
pricing for more hikes next year.

While a move in December to between 1.25 and 1.5 percent is still
almost fully priced in, Fed fund futures <0#FF:> rallied to show rates
at just 1.75 percent by the end of next year.

“The US dollar was already staggering into Thanksgiving when the FOMC
minutes gave it another shove,” said Sean Callow, a senior currency
analyst at Westpac. “The FOMC seems to be increasingly uneasy about
”ongoing softness“ in inflation.”

Call to prosecute Angola ex-President Jose Eduardo dos Santos
Africa


Angolan ruling MPLA party veteran and historian Ambrósio Lukoki wants
former President José Eduardo dos Santos prosecuted.

Mr Lukoki, currently the Angolan ambassador to Tanzania, also wants
the former ruler to resign from the Popular Movement for the
Liberation of Angola leadership immediately.

Mr dos Santos had in March 2016, indicated he would quit politics in 2018.

Mr Lukoki said at a press conference in Luanda on Tuesday that Mr dos
Santos was hiding behind the MPLA leadership to avoid prosecution for
the numerous crimes associated with his 38-year rule.

"It is convenient that José Eduardo dos Santos immediately resigns
from the MPLA post so that President João Lourenço can operate
unhindered," said Mr Lukoki.

Conclusions

Vow. The Speed of the Dos Santos unravelling. Lourenco is burning the
ground under his Feet.

One-month dollar-rand implied volatility soared to the highest in two years on Wednesday
Africa


One-month dollar-rand implied volatility soared to the highest in two
years on Wednesday as traders hedged for big moves either way in the
run-up to the ruling African National Congress’ leadership election in
December. The premium of options to sell the rand over those to buy it
-- known as the risk reversal -- has dipped, however, suggesting
traders are taking some bearish bets off the table even as hedging
remains skewed toward rand weakness.

Reports that Cyril Ramaphosa, seen as the more market-friendly
candidate, is leading the race to take over as ANC leader from
President Jacob Zuma have buoyed the rand. A win for Ramaphosa would
be “hugely market-positive,” while a victory for Zuma’s ex-wife
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the other main contender, would weaken the
rand, according to Societe Generale SA.

#Ethiopia bets on clothes to fashion industrial future
Africa


There has been some progress; foreign investment in the textile
industry has risen from 4.5 billion birr ($166.5 million) in 2013/14
to 36.8 billion in 2016/17, the Ethiopian Investment Commission, a
government agency, told Reuters.

“This is a huge success,” Arkebe Oqubay, a prime ministerial adviser
directing the industrialisation drive, said during the inauguration of
an industry park in the northern Ethiopian town of Kombolcha this
summer. “The challenge now is to bring the world’s biggest companies
into the country.”

Some have already arrived, most of them sourcing some production
locally, like Gap and H&M, but a few building factories themselves.

Those to set up factories this year include U.S. fashion giant PVH,
whose brands include Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger; Dubai-based
Velocity Apparelz Companies, which supplies Levi‘s, Zara and Under
Armour; and China‘s Jiangsu Sunshine Group, whose customers include
Giorgio Armani and Hugo Boss.

Standing out from the herd : an economic assessment of tourism in Kenya (English) @Worldbank @ApurvaSanghi
Kenyan Economy


It suggests that tourism has diffuse and deep backward links into the economy.

The dynamic CGE simulations confirm earlier results that safari
tourism dominates in terms of growth and more equitable income
distribution benefits. This derives from its complementarity with
agriculture, its low capital intensity, and multiple and intensive
backward linkages with the rural poor.

Much of Kenyan tourism is targeted at the spectrum of the market where
profit margins are low and where volumes need to be high to break
even. Somewhat ambitiously, Kenya’s Vision 2030 sets a target of five
million tourists — which would require a four or five- fold increase
in tourist numbers.

The tourism sector, especially nature-based tourism, has played a
pivotal role in shaping Kenya’s development fortunes. Tourism
dominates the service sector (67 percent of the economy) and it is the
third largest source of foreign exchange in the country; the World
Travel Tourism Council estimates that it contributes about 10 percent
of GDP, direct and indirect (as shown in Figure 3 above).

Business and conference travel is a segment with much potential.

Travelers in the premium wildlife sector spend twice as much per day
than those in other segments of the market

The Kenyan tourism industry is at a crossroads and must make a
strategic decision on how to develop its offerings.

According to a value chain analysis conducted by the World Travel and
Tourism Council, Tanzania’s higher earnings per visitor are mostly
attributable to lower congestion and its ability to attract travellers
who are prepared to pay a higher price for a more authentic and
exclusive wilderness experience. In other words, Tanzania caters to a
segment of the market where demand is relatively price inelastic and
hence it can raise more revenue per tourist than Kenya.

Of greater concern is the irreversible damage that could occur to
natural habitats, which is the asset base for safari tourism.

Many of Kenya’s key tourist attractions are under pressure and showing
signs of degradation. Perhaps most troubling, recent population
monitoring suggests that long-term declines of many of the charismatic
species that attract tourists — lions, elephants, gira e, impala, and
other animals — are occurring at the same rates within the country’s
national parks as outside of these protected areas.

The HVLD approach has several advantages for wildlife related tourism
