Letter from Tehran: Trump 'the bazaari' Asia Times
Law & Politics

The art of the deal, when practiced for 2500 years, does lead to the
palace of wisdom. I had hardly set foot in Tehran when a diplomat
broke the news: “Trump? We’re not worried. He’s a bazaari”. It’s a
Persian language term meaning he is from the merchants class or, more
literally, a worker from the bazaar and its use implies that a
political accommodation will eventually be reached.

The Iranian government’s response to the Trump administration boils
down to a Sun Tzu variant; silence, especially after the Fall of
Flynn, who had “put Iran on notice” after it carried out a ballistic
missile test, and had pushed the idea of an anti-Iran military
alliance comprising Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Jordan. Tehran
says the missile test did not infringe the provisions of the Iran
nuclear deal and that naval drills from the Strait of Hormuz to the
Indian Ocean, which began on Sunday, had been planned well in advance.

Rural Zimbabwe Empties as Mugabe's Land Reform Policy Unravels

Forests engulf fields that used to produce some of the world’s best
tobacco around the northern Zimbabwean town of Banket, while barns
that once stored the leaf stand empty, their corrugated iron roofs
ripped off and sold for scrap. Most of the farm workers have left.

“We are 15 here now, from roughly 50,” said 25-year-old Bruce Mahenya,
who lives in a mud-and-grass hut behind a defunct trading store on a
farm about 95 kilometers (60 miles) northwest of the capital, Harare.
“My mother, father and brother have gone. I said I would remain alone
in case things get better, but it’s hard.”

It’s a familiar story across vast tracts of Zimbabwe, where President
Robert Mugabe’s goal of transforming the countryside through the
seizure of about 4,500 white-owned commercial farms remains illusive.
Some of the best acreage fell into ruin because senior ruling party
officials who took it over had no farming expertise. Other farms also
failed because they were given to small producers with no money to pay
for fertilizer and equipment. In recent years, the crisis has been
compounded by drought followed by torrential rains.

Nigeria's economy shrinks in 2016 for first time in 25 years

Nigeria's economy contracted 1.5 percent in 2016 due to lower oil
revenues and a shortage of hard currency, the National Bureau of
Statistics said on Tuesday, its first annual contraction in quarter of
a century.

Africa's largest economy slid into recession in the second quarter of
2016 as a slump in crude prices hammered the OPEC member's public
finances and battered the naira currency. Crude sales make up
two-thirds of government revenue.

"This contraction reflects a difficult year for Nigeria, which
included weaker inflation-induced consumption demand, an increase in
pipeline vandalism, significantly reduced foreign reserves and a
concomitantly weaker currency," the statistics office said in a

The International Monetary Fund had predicted Nigeria's economy would
shrink 1.8 percent in 2016. A Reuters poll forecast a 1.2 percent

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said in a statement the GDP data
suggested Nigeria was "well on its way out of recession".

Fourth-quarter GDP increased 4.1 percent from the preceding three
months, the statistics agency said.

The fundamental paradox at the heart of President Buhari's government is the Naira

Soaring food costs send Kenyan inflation sharply higher
Kenyan Economy

Inflation rose to 9.04 percent year-on-year - above the government's
target range - from 6.99 percent in January, the Kenya National Bureau
of Statistics (KNBS) said. Month on month it rose to 1.80 percent from
1.00 percent.

KNBS said the food and non-alcoholics drinks index gained 3.28 percent
on the month and 16.50 percent on the year, as staples including maize
flour, milk and potatoes rose in price.

That segment accounts for 36 percent of Kenya's inflation basket.

Isuzu buys 57.7pc stake in GM East Africa
Kenyan Economy

Japanese automaker Isuzu Motors Limited has bought out General Motors’
57.7 per cent stake in General Motors East Africa (GMEA) for an
undisclosed sum.
The transaction will see the motor dealer change its name to Isuzu
East Africa in April to reflect the change of control.
Most of the dealer’s sales are bus, pick-ups and truck brands of the
Japanese multinational whose status shifts from a vehicle supplier to
an owner.
The deal comes at a time when the dealer has steadily grown its market
share in the local new vehicle market to a record 35 per cent last
year, with Isuzu brands representing more than 95.6 per cent of the


Buy-Out Activity has seriously accelerated.
