Africa Reflections on the State of the Now

It's never been and probably never will be a linear progression but
clearly what were once small pockets of acceleration have broadened
out and not too long ago the Economist pointed out that six of the
fastest growing economies in the World are in Africa.

The point to understand is that the African emergence is a relatively
recent phenomenon. The challenge for many African governments is going
to be of  a very youthful population wanting it now.

This new generation is surfing the c21st via their mobile phones and
their needs and wants are a multiple of any preceding generation.

This new generation will reshape and force the reconfiguration of
governments across Africa as they are forced to react to a new normal
[of heightened expectations amongst its citizens.

Now an electorate can have heightened expectations but simply no
leverage with which to pressure its government.

Today the pressure points are growing exponentially.

For three whole days during the Westgate crisis, the hashtag
#StepasideOlelenku was the top trending hashtag in this region.

I feel sorry for the cabinet secretary because I suspect some
undiluted old guard elements probably whispered ''Say This'' and ''Say
That'' with no regard or even comprehension of the new normal and
little regard for the fact that they were shredding the cabinet
secretary's bona fides.

The electorate is breaking out of its box. PWC in its Africa Business
Agenda Report 2013 noted;

''A significantly higher percentage of CEOs in Africa recognise the
power of social media users compared to their global counterparts.''
And ''of the critical influence of the social media on public

The mobile phone [The Financial Times recently reported that in a
seven-year period mobile phone subscriptions had risen to 475 million
from 90 million in sub-Saharan Africa] has been a silver bullet and a
game changer, it has been very grass roots [Anyone can own one] and it
has been the catalyst for creating a new communications ecosystem.

Of course, the failure to award the African Leadership Prize for the
4th Occasion out of 7 captured headlines but what caught my attention
was this; The Rule of Law and Safety Index [In country and not cross
border conflict related] was the only index which has deteriorated.

The World Economic Forum also made a similar finding. This is an alarm
bell and I think speaks to a consequence of a failure to meet the
rising expectations of our people.

Our societies more urbanised than ever before are becoming more
personally dangerous and it appears to be a Sub Saharan wide
phenomenon. Its not an external challenge but an internal fissure.

Ibrahim said "We should not rush into thinking that improvement will
happen instantly. Don't forget it took China 40 years to get where it
is now" Unfortunately, I know of no one who has a 40 year time
horizon.These are interesting and very fluid times.

Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights

The Voluntary Principles are the only human rights guidelines designed
specifically for extractive sector companies. Participants in the
Voluntary Principles Initiative -- including governments, companies,
and NGOs -- agree to proactively implement or assist in the
implementation of the Voluntary Principles.

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative #EITI

The EITI maintains the EITI Standard. Countries implement the EITI
Standard to ensure full disclosure of taxes and other payments made by
producing oil, gas and mining companies. These payments are disclosed
in an annual EITI Report (to see all EITI Reports, go to
datat.eiti.org). This report allows citizens to see for themselves how
much their government is receiving from their country's natural

Transparency can only lead to accountability if there is understanding
of what the figures mean and public debate about how the country's
resource wealth should be managed. Therefore, the EITI Standard
requires that EITI Reports are comprehensible, actively promoted and
contribute to public debate.

A project called Shadow, which by means of a free app, available in
December, intends to archive the dreams of people around the world

Soik said, "If you don't record the dream, you don't remember it. When
you record it, you can read a dream from a year ago and remember where
you were and how you felt. But if I ask you what did you dream about a
year ago, you don't know. That's invisible data, in our opinion, and
what we like is the idea of making the invisible visible. We feel this
is a huge data set that is literally forgotten every night if it's not
written out. What we're trying to do is build a community of dreamers,
and if we do this right it will be here for a very long time."

"There is nothing like a dream to create the future." - Victor Hugo

Look, boys, it ever strike you that the world not real at all? It ever
strike you that we have the only mind in the world and you just

'Renamo attack' on Mozambique's Maringue police station BBC

Mozambique's opposition Renamo movement has attacked a police station
in the central town of Maringue a day after annulling a 1992 peace
accord with the government, officials say.

Police are said to have fled their posts after gunmen opened fire and
there are no reports of casualties.

A Renamo spokesman said party leader Afonso Dhlakama had "lost control
of the situation".


The United States on Tuesday urged Mozambique's government and the
Renamo opposition movement to "move back from the brink"

African leaders ask U.N. to defer Kenya international criminal trials
Kenyan Economy

The African Union and Kenya asked the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday
to defer the trials of Kenya's leaders at the International Criminal
Court for one year so they can deal with the aftermath of the Nairobi
mall attack.

In a letter to the council obtained by Reuters, African leaders said
the legal proceedings against President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy
William Ruto "will distract and prevent them from fulfilling their
constitutional responsibilities, including oversight for national and
regional security affairs."

The AU requested that their trials be deferred "in order to provide
them with the time required for the enhancement of the efforts aimed
at combating terrorism and other forms of insecurity in the region."

At least 67 people were killed when al Qaeda-linked group al Shabaab
attacked Nairobi's Westgate shopping center last month.

In a separate letter, Kenya's U.N. Ambassador Macharia Kamau said that
when considering the deferral request, the 15-member Security Council
should take into account the "threat to the peace, breach of the peace
or act of aggression likely to transpire in light of the prevailing
and continuing terrorist threat existing in the Horn of and Eastern

The Security Council can defer ICC proceedings for one year under
Article 16 of the Rome Statute that established The Hague-based court
a decade ago. The council would need to adopt a resolution to take
that step.

The latest Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) data shows that mobile payments
grew 21.8 per cent to Sh1.2 trillion at the end of August compared to
Sh987.2 billion during a similar period last year.


"The continued growth of mobile money is largely attributed to growing
ubiquity of the service," said Bob Collymore, chief executive of
Safaricom, which has 17.1 million users on the M-Pesa network.

N.S.E Today

The Rally seen in Nairobi, The Nairobi All Share is +91.62% since
January 2012, is actually an Africa Wide Phenomenon.
The South Africa All Share closed at an All Time High yesterday, Egypt
is at a January 2011 High, Ghana has set a Sequence of All Times,
Nigeria is at a more than 5 Year High.
The Rally has been largely driven by International Investors upsizing
a previously egregiously underweight Weighting for SSA Equities to a
less egregious weighting.
That Process has much more to run and underpins SSA Equity Markets.
I expect an average Rally of 5%-10% across Africa Equities Indices
through Year End.
The Nairobi All Share firmed 0.4044% to close at 131.56.
The All Share is +38.68% in 2013 and just 1.52% below its 2013 and All
Time Closing High reached on the 8th of October this Year.
The Nairobi NSE20 firmed 10.01 points to close at 4953.84.
The Nairobi NSE20 will threaten its 2013 and Multi Year High Closing
High of 5030.91 from April 2nd this Year.
Equity Turnover was more vigorous at 789.448m versus 343.353m previously.
Safaricom traded 51.69% of the Volume today and firmed 1.12%.
Carbacid rallied +58.621% after the Release of its FY Earnings

The Shilling was last trading at 84.749 and will strengthen towards 84.00.
The Retreat in the Price of Crude Oil is singularly helpful.

N.S.E Equities - Commercial & Services

Safaricom was the most actively traded share at the Securities
Exchange and firmed +1.12% to close at 9.05 and traded 45.102m shares
worth 408.089m and 51.69% of the Total Volume transacted at the
Securities Exchange today. Safaricom is +79.20% this Year and will
test its all Time Closing High of 9.40 reached on the 8th of this
month. High Volume Action around the 9.00 Level confirms 9.00 as a
Price Support Level. The latest Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) data shows
that mobile payments grew 21.8% to Sh1.2 trillion at the end of August
compared to Sh987.2 billion during a similar period last year and that
informs Investors that M-Pesa which expanded FY Revenues +29.5% to
21.84b is set to stay on that elevated Trajectory.

ScanGroup closed unchanged at 58.00 and traded 501,800 shares worth
29.103m. ScanGroup reported a -82.509% slide in H1 2013 Profit Before
Tax and it is that Headline Number which pressured the Price.
ScanGroup sits 32.44% below the Price that @WPP's Cavendish Holding is
going to pay for more than 20m shares and as part of the Transaction
that will place @WPP into a Majority shareholder Position. The @WPP
Network Effect is currently priced at near zero.

Kenya Airways where the CEO Dr. Titus Naikuni is in Seattle preparing
for the Delivery of Kenya Airways' largest aircraft ever the Boeing
777-300ER to Nairobi on Friday, firmed +0.48% to close at 10.45 and
traded 461,700 shares. Kenya Airways broke Key Price Resistance of
10.00 on the 1st of October. 10.00 had capped Kenya Airways since mid
June and hence the Surge through that Level was an important Chart
Break Out. Dr. Naikuni has steered Earnings Expectations towards a FY
Profit, the share price has plenty further to go.

Uchumi firmed 1.19% to close at 21.25 and traded 40,500 shares. Supply
has thinned out.
