    This morning, Center for Civic Media at MIT is releasing a new publishing platform, FOLD. Alexis Hope (a Masters student in my lab) and Kevin Hu began working on FOLD when they were students in my class News and Participatory Media. The class asks students to take on a reporting task each week, using existing tools or building new ones to solve a particular challenge.

    The University of Cape Town removed a controversial statue of British colonialist Cecil Rhodes last week, after a month of student protests. Rhodes, who build the De Beers diamond empire, was an unrepentant imperialist whose wealth came from purchasing mineral rights from indigenous leaders and turning their territories into British protectorates. Under his rule in Cape Colony, many Africans lost the right to vote, a step which some scholars see as leading to enforced racial segregation in South Africa. While Rhodes made major donations to charitable causes – including the land the…

    On Thursday morning, heavily armed attackers, believed to be members of al-Shabaab, invaded Garissa University and killed 147 students. Mohamed Kuno, a high-ranking al-Shabaab official, has been named by the Kenyan government as the mastermind of the attack. Two days later, we are hearing terrifying details, including a student who hid in a wardrobe for more than 50 hours, afraid that the police who came to rescue here were militants trying to lure her out. Her decision was a wise one – the militants told students they would live if they came out of their dormitories… then lined…

    What’s a “holy shit visualization”? It’s a way of looking at data that makes turns a statistic you might have flipped past in a book or skimmed by on a web page into something that you can’t forget. It’s a visceral reminder of the power of images and the power of looking at dry numbers in human terms. For Mike Evans, the map below was a holy shit visualization.

  • Brand Story: A Critical Element For Product Positioning

    Staff Reporter
    21 May 2015 | 6:46 am
    South Africa is world-renowned for its wines. For winemakers, however, the proliferation of wine estates means that they compete in a market crowded with 700 wineries that produce more than 10,000 different brands. Competing for retail shelf space typically means getting a place alongside 300 other brands – a wine lover’s paradise, but a wine producer’s nightmare. Achieving targets means differentiating your wine from others, something that is easier said than done in a crowded market. But, says Ethel Nyembe, Head of Small Enterprise at Standard Bank, two wine producers managed to…

    Getting a ‘roasting’ from the eye-witness consumer is a growing risk for business now social media can broadcast even the appearance of questionable behaviour. To be more specific, a brand can be ‘KFC’d’. The danger was recently highlighted by the case of the hosed-down chicken at Braamfontein KFC where employees scattered chicken pieces on the ground and hosed them down. A KFC statement said later the workers were trying to hide from management the fact that they had mistakenly coated chicken that was to be discarded. The raw chicken was not meant for customers. The hosing was to…

A rich array of arts surrounds her, as well as a host of other aquatic spirits--all honoring the essential, sacred nature of water. Mami Wata is often portrayed as a mermaid, a snake charmer, or a combination of both.

    Editor

    The leader of the Roman Catholic Church, who has made waves of connections reaching out to disaffected Catholics and insisting on making the poor a top priority, hasn’t watched TV since July 15, 1990, he revealed in an interview published in the Argentinian newspaper La Voz del Pueblo. The pontiff did not reveal why he gave up watching TV, except to say he decided it wasn’t for him, before promising the Virgin Mary he wouldn’t watch again. That promise has kept him from watching his favorite soccer team, Buenos Aires-based San Lorenzo, but he told the paper a member of his…

    The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied reports that its National Working Committee (NWC) had zoned the seats of the Senate President and House Speaker to the North-Central and South-West respectively.

According to the statement, the party is deeply embarrassed by the story, apparently planted in the media to sow the seed of instability in the party. ”The NWC never discussed the issue of zoning at its meeting.

  • Cul De Sac – Why Some African Presidents Can’t Retire or Resign

    namkay27
    17 May 2015 | 3:51 am
    The recent events in Burundi got me thinking seriously on the question of why some African presidents don’t want to retire, or to resign. If I were in Pierre Nkurunziza’s shoes I would definitely have given it some thought to leave office even before the current term expires, let alone seek a third term as president. I mean, all that popular support for the coup we witnessed on the streets of Bujumbura spoke volumes. Now, obviously, Nkurunziza enjoys a measure of support of his own, after all he came to power with a popular vote. So, you might argue that he owes it to his electorate to…
  • God Loves Uganda Review And Trailer

    God Loves Uganda does not set out to present an impartial commentary on the events that led to the passing of an anti-gay bill in Uganda. The main premise of the documentary is that church groups in the United State, such as the powerful International House Of Prayer are taking their prejudices along with the gospel to Africa, Uganda in this case, dabbed the “firepot of spiritual renewal”. The director, Roger Ross Williams on some occasions goes over-theatrical, for instance cutting between ominous slow-motion shots of children running, to close-ups of American church-goers in the frenzy…
  • Uganda – An African Safari Hotspot Going to Waste

    7 May 2015 | 1:52 am
    Uganda, once described as the Pearl of Africa by the late Winston Churchill, is, on the books, the best place to go on an African safari. You have a very pleasant climate, a very congenial and welcoming population, and Kampala, the capital, although it is the African city closest to the equator, enjoys cool temperatures throughout the year, around 25 to 35 degrees Celsius. Entebbe is the international airport that services Kampala and is only 30 odd kilometers from the capital and lies by the lake. Temperatures in Entebbe never go above 27 degrees Celsius all year round. In addition Uganda is…
  • African Spectre – A James Bond Parody

    pessimist@afrocritic.com
    6 May 2015 | 11:40 pm
    Someone joked that Africa is shaped like a revolver – the muzzle is in the South Africa, Namibia, Angola area, the trigger is in the DRC, and the butt in the Arab countries of Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco and parts of Chad and Mali. That would put the bullet chamber somewhere in the South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda area. A sick joke! Except, I do not see this as a joke any more. You see, there is SPECTRE, which is a secret compact, or you can call it a code of conduct, to which many African regimes have subscribed, and it seems to fit in nicely with the revolver analogy. James Bond’s…
