The Scramble for Africa

As a new era in history has begun to dawn on humanity, new doors are being opened in both opportunities and also in the realms of potential threats and conflagrations.

This reality has been noted most clearly in the developing affairs of Africa, a continent that is on the verge of transformation through both technology and evolving international interactions. In the face of potential progress driven by Africa?s lucrative natural resources and economic potential, an ominous threat looms above Africa, the threat of the neo-imperialist, globalist agenda which has scarred the face of humanity with its continual drive of global hegemony.

This ?globalist agenda? is a militarized corporatism in a neo-imperialist system operating from all sides of the Western political spectrum and representing the corporate elite of Wall Street and London; no clearer was the nefarious nature of these interests shown than in the subversion of Libya two years ago in 2011.

Before delving into the demise of Libya, it is necessary to understand neo-imperialisms? ambitions for Africa; its goal is the subjection of Africa into its orbit in order to serve as a critical lynchpin in the establishment of a unipolar world order (including ousting potential Chinese competition).

The unipolar world order is the creating of a single center of global economic, political, and military power coupled with the control of international trade and the distribution of resources as is admittedly the agenda noted by Dr Carroll Quigley in his ?Tragedy and Hope? among various other publications from Western corporate-financier think tanks ranging from the Council on Foreign Relations to the Brookings Institute.

Is it a conspiracy that the competition for land and resources has been going on since the dawn of time? Just because we are in the 21st century now and have established the borders and all of that doesn't mean that this rivalry has stopped.

 

Is it a conspiracy that there's USAFRICOM there?

What exactly is the U.S. doing in Africa? And this isn't just about Africa of course.

Yep, One World Government is totally a fake and crazy conspiratorial idea /s

 

Is it a conspiracy that, in the capitalist world, a group of people with the most capital own the most lucrative assets? And who has the most cash? It's those who control the supply-side of money, the bankers.

 

Is it a conspiracy that the U.S. has a history of subjecting independent countries by force?

 

"It's either our way or the highway." " Either you are with us or against us." Does this sound familiar?

 

How can we have a meaningful discussion if every time such a topic is brought up it's labelled as a conspiracy?

      HMD Global closes funding round with $230 million
      by Paul Hill



      HMD Global, the company behind Nokia-branded phones, has announced the closure of its current round of funding that saw it raise $230 million from its top global strategic partners. The company said that it will now use the funds to help make 5G phones more affordable, transition to a digital-first "post-COVID reality", expand into growth markets, and become a holistic mobile service provider, not just one that focuses on hardware.

      Commenting on the news, Florian Seiche, CEO, HMD Global, said:

      In terms of expanding into growth markets, HMD Global specifically mentioned Brazil, Africa, and India as areas that it was to grow in. It’s mention of becoming a “holistic mobile service provider” was a little vague, however, it could be a reference to its HMD Connect service which is in beta and offers a hassle-free data SIM for those on the move.

      With the company offering a range of affordable devices, focusing on services could help the company keep its finances in a healthier state. If the firm manages to find a service that users come to rely on, it could also further develop a loyal following of people who would be more likely to buy its hardware in the future.

      UK launches Tech for Growth to bring financial services to Africa
      by Paul Hill



      The UK government has launched its Tech for Growth programme which aims to use technology to bring more financial services to emerging economies, initially in Africa. The programme is spearheaded by the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) and will boost trading opportunities between the UK and the Global South.

      For the first year, the programme will be piloted in Africa where access to financial services is still low. In the future, the UK is looking to expand the programme to South East Asia and Latin America. As a whole, financial tech is a fairly interesting sector with firms such as Starling Bank and Monzo revolutionizing how banking is done.

      Commenting on the move, Gerry Grimstone, UK Minister for Investment, said:

      During the first year, the programme with have three goals; firstly, it will establish a UK-Africa Tech for Growth community with events in Africa and the UK to promote partnerships between technology and financial services firms in both areas. Secondly, it will empower trade by highlighting opportunities and lifting barriers that inhibit the FinTech sector. Finally, it will work with African governments and regulators to grow their tech sectors and develop future trading partnerships.

      Loon starts providing service to Telkom Kenya customers
      by Paul Hill

      Google’s sister project, Loon, has announced that its balloons will now begin providing internet service to customers of Telkom Kenya. The firm said that this is the first time Loon is being used in a non-emergency capacity to provide connectivity on a large-scale. Additionally, it is the first time balloons are providing internet in Africa and is just the first of many commercial deployments worldwide.

      In order to provide connectivity, Loon has deployed a fleet of 35 or more balloons that are in constant motion in the stratosphere. The vehicles are currently providing service to 50,000 square kilometers in western and central parts of the country. Some of the areas that can connect to the balloons include Iten, Eldoret, Baringo, Nakuru, Kakamega, Kisumu, Kisii, Bomet, Kericho, and Narok.

      In terms of the speeds users can expect, one test run by Loon and Telkom Kenya recorded an uplink speed of 4.74 Mbps, a downlink speed of 18.9 Mbps, and a latency of 19 milliseconds (ms). The two firms were able to use the connectivity to access WhatsApp and YouTube, browse the web, and make voice and video calls.

      While the service is only just launching now, Loon has revealed that 35,000 subscribers have already connected to the balloons while they were being tested. According to the firm, some of the people who have already connected to the balloons in the testing phase were not even aware of the fact.

      Loon re-iterated the fact that its balloons are not here to replace ground-based communications, instead, they are another layer. In countries with extreme weather or geographies, ground-based communications can frequently be knocked out of operation or be unfeasible. By floating a balloon in the stratosphere, telecom firms can bypass these hurdles and connect more people.

      Slimmer lite version of Opera News launches in 40 countries
      by Paul Hill



      Opera has announced the availability of Opera News Lite, a slimmed version of its existing Opera News app. Opera News Lite is geared toward users with low-end devices or restrictive data plans; the app is less than 1MB in size, and is more responsive on slow networks.

      Opera News’ foothold is in Africa where mobile data costs a lot of money, network speeds are slow, and mobile devices have lower amounts of storage. By launching Opera News Lite, Opera is hoping that it can reach new users who may not be able to afford a lot of data or are using an older device with less storage space.

      Aside from launching the new app, Opera stated that it has recently installed local data centres in Lagos and Mombasa, this should speed things up for users that live in Kenya, Nigeria, or nearby countries. Discussing the benefits of the data centres, Alejandro Viquez from Opera, said:

      The app is now available on the Play Store in 40 countries mainly in Africa, however, people in India, Indonesia, Russia, and the United States are also able to download the app.

      UK supercomputer set to help fight African locust outbreak
      by Paul Hill



      A supercomputer funded by UK aid is now being used to help predict locust movements in East Africa that are destroying crops. By knowing where the locusts will move next, residents will have an early warning to prepare themselves. The region is currently experiencing the worst locust outbreak in 70 years.

      Climate experts are using the supercomputer which is based in the regional climate centre in Kenya (ICPAC). It uses satellite data to track the swarms but also produces weather forecasts to predict high winds, rainfall, and humidity; this data allows the experts to figure out where the locusts will go next to breed, giving residents in the area time to protect their crops.

      With the data in hand, the UK is also providing £5 million to an emergency UN appeal which will help cover the costs of locust surveillance and aerial pesticides in countries such as Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan, Eritrea, Djibouti, and Tanzania. With this support, farmers will have a much better chance at defending 78,000 hectares of land from the insects.

      The supercomputer, which will help predict the locusts’ movements, is provided through the Department for International Development’s Weather and Climate Information Services for Africa (WISER) programme, in collaboration with the UK Met Office and the Africa Climate Policy Centre.
