    The Mukombe – Zimbabwe’s tippy tap Dr. Peter Morgan, winner of the 2013 Stockholm Water Prize and resident of Zimbabwe, recently shared the design of The Mukombe on the forum of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance. The Mukombe is a hand washing device – a “tippy tap” as it is commonly known within the Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) scene – as it just requires a little tip to provide the user with just enough water to wash the hands. In water-arid areas, such a simple device can be essential to hygiene. Naturally occuring Mukombe “(The Mukombe)…

    There’s quite a good read up on the Tech Coctail site titled, “What (US) VC’s Are Missing in a Rising World of Smartphones“. It’s a little about smartphones, though the underlying discussion points are really about how blind the investors in the West are to the Middle East, Africa, and Asia due to their preconditioning on Silicon Valley being the only place that big tech things happen. Meanwhile, massive deals are ongoing in the Middle East and Asia that are under the radar. But Western VC’s are slow, and US VCs in particular are slow to catch on to this trend. In…

Thankfully, there are few truly despotic societies in the world, but Myanmar was one of them from 1962 until quite recently, ruled by a military junta with a horrific record on human rights. The nation’s media was heavily state controlled, with a policy of pre-publication censorship that turned domestic media into an organ for state propaganda. It was difficult or impossible for international media to report critically on the country,…

As a country fuelled on democracy and equal rights, the Constitution is very clear when it comes to the protection of rights. The right to privacy is one of these rights and is regarded as being of utmost importance. In many instances, to ensure that rights are upheld in a fair and unbiased manner, a balance is required. 2009 was a year of breakthrough for the protection of consumers with the promulgation of the Consumer Protection Act 68 of…

    The Joburg Centre for Software Engineering (JCSE) at Wits University says that IT businesses need to be aware of the implications of the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act, signed into law on the 26th November 2013. JCSE Director, Prof Barry Dwolatzky says that POPI regulates how anyone who processes personal information must securely manage this information: “While the law is not yet in force, it is very important for businesses to ensure that they can comply with its stringent requirements.” Dwolatzky says that while Government still has to announce a commencement date, IT…

  • How To Go International With Your Valuation Business

    theleoafricanus
    11 Apr 2014 | 5:10 am
    One of the biggest reasons why there is sense in moving to other countries for valuation business is because of the cost factor. However, it may not be right to look into all the markets  that are available on the map. As a real estate valuer, you should look only for those markets where you can add value. The best way forward would be to look for countries that are often referred to as BRICS, i.e. Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. It certainly makes sense to try and start your own valuation business in any or even all these countries. However, it is important for you to have a…

    If you are a successful real estate appraiser in Australia you would certainly know what it takes to become successful in this area of real estate business. You can leverage on your experience and expertise to set up a valuation business in a foreign country. However, it is important for you to understand the rules of the game in the country where you wish to set up shop. Further you should also be careful about choosing the right country. It would be better to start business in developed economies though competition is bound to be intense. On the other hand you could also choose some…

    If you are a successful real estate and property valuer in Australia, it is quite likely that you have achieved success in this field after a lot of hard work and commitment over the past many years. Most of the real estate companies and individuals who have achieved reasonably high levels of success would have done so by growing their business consistently and persistently. Based on their expertise and experience, they would be willing to establish valuation companies outside Australia if the situation so warrants and if it felt necessary and conducive. In fact such a plan is indeed…

    If you wish to grow any business to the next higher level of success it is very important for you to become as competitive and productive as possible. Today’s customers, including those who are looking for property valuers, are always looking for service providers who are ready to provide them with good value for money. Hence the need to be competitive and increase productivity is no longer a lip service but a dire necessity. One of the ways by which you can become competitive is by cutting down costs of your property valuations. Amongst the various methods that are being thought of,…

    There are certainly a number of benefits when you decide to go overseas in your quest to give your property appraisal business a new thrust. You will be able to grab a pie of the international property valuation business which could run into trillions or dollars. While getting a foothold in established and well developed real estate markets like Europe and USA might be difficult, there are a number of opportunities waiting to be tapped in emerging economies like Russia, India, Brazil and South Africa.

They are unapologetic about their commitment to human rights for every Zimbabwean and their conviction that sexual rights are integral to affirming all human rights.

    From Foreign Policy in Focus,”It’s Not Just Uganda: Behind the Christian Right’s Onslaught in Africa” by Nathalie Baptiste In Uganda, being gay can now earn you a lifetime in prison. Last month, the East African country was again thrust into the international spotlight after President Yoweri Museveni signed into law a draconian bill that criminalized homosexuality. The high profile, on-and-off battle over the so-called “kill the gays” bill has drawn headlines for years as the most extreme example in a wave of antigay legislation on the continent. But homophobia in Africa…

    From Pambazuka News, Henry Makori calls for an end to the persecution of LGBTI people across Africa which goes beyond laws to a fierce intolerance by society at large.   President Yoweri Museveni has done it. Against widespread expectation raised by his earlier pledge, the Ugandan leader turned around this week and signed into law the contentious Anti-Homosexuality Bill passed last December by a parliament his ruling party, the National Resistance Movement (NRM), controls. The bill had been opposed locally and internationally for a record four years, since its introduction to the…

    “Social media strategy”. There are a great deal of agency practitioners selling, and corporate clients requesting, social media strategy. It’s a line item on reams of involved proposals and quotations. Type “social me…” into Google and the first autocompleted result is “social media strategy”. Same goes for search results on Slideshare, and when you select “social media strategy” you get 201 478 results.

I’m not alone though – it seems my Twitter timeline and Facebook newsfeed are peppered daily with stories of people getting off the couch and into a pair of trainers. Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that the somewhat narcissistic, socially-powered “I just ran 5.1 kms in 27:32″ updates generated by fitness apps like Strava, Endomondo and Runtastic make it just that little bit harder to spend all day on the couch and not…

    Ten years ago the job description Community Manager did not exist. Today I get more emails from companies looking for outsourced community management as a service, or for candidates to be recruited into that position, than anything else. A Community Manager is best described as someone who builds, engages and activates online communities around brands. Online communities could include social networks like Facebook or Twitter, or forums, blogs, wikis, etc. We employ and train many Community Managers at Cerebra. In many ways I think we’ve played a significant role in defining the nature and…

    On a recent trip to Ghana, I spent a good amount of time traversing Accra, and consequently getting stuck in traffic. Ghana is not unlike many other African and foreign cities. It boasts a growing urban population, engaged middle class, and business growth. Add to that poor urban planning and you get horrendous daily traffic. At this point Ghanaians have accepted that traffic delays are a way of life and have adjusted accordingly. Commuters try to alleviate travel headaches by getting multiple cars per household – one for each member of the family to travel independently. Having a…

    18 Apr 2014 | 2:40 am
    On 17 April, 1980, Robert Mugabe addressed a euphoric crowd in the soon-to-be-independent Zimbabwe. In the aftermath of a long and brutal liberation struggle against white minority rule, Mugabe seemed to publicly embrace the ideals of peace and reconciliation. By becoming Zimbabwe’s leader he ostensibly vanquished the ugly specter of colonialism and racism that had defined the country formerly known as Rhodesia, and entered office buoyed by a wave of international fanfare and support.It was in this context, on the eve of Zimbabwe’s independence, that Mugabe declared:“Democracy is never…

  • Lessons From Beyond the Mass Grave for the Central African Republic and South Sudan

    It was a haunting discovery: a terrified 11-year-old girl cowering in the corner of a ransacked house three days after her village had been attacked in a horrific act of ethnic cleansing. Her parents had also been killed, and in the streets outside dogs fed on the decomposing bodies of her neighbours. This scene, witnessed by Amnesty International researchers, may be reminiscent of those that occurred during the Rwanda genocide. But this girl was a Muslim, not a Tutsi. The village was in the Central African Republic, not in Rwanda. And this happened this February, not 20 years ago.A decade…

The status of refugees in India is governed mainly by political and administrative decisions rather than any codified model of conduct. The ad hoc nature of the Government’s approach has led to varying treatment of different refugee groups. Some groups are granted a full range of benefits including legal residence and the ability to be legally employed, whilst others are criminalized and denied access to basic social resources.
