This saying applies repeatedly as correct, as shown by the latest Nachrichten Deutschland Afrika (NADA)!
South African paleontologists revealed the discovery of a burial site near Johannesburg of the remains of the Homo naledi, a tree-climbing hominid and distant relative of human, who had been thought incapable of this until now.

Unfortunately Zimbabwe made it easily to the top of the recently published 2022 Annual Misery Index of the US economist Prof. Steve Hanke. It became the most miserable country of 157 listed, due to “bad” economic reasons – the year-end unemployment, inflation, and bank-lending rates. Inflation was the main contributor in the case of Zimbabwe.
I thought I knew all the atrocities perpetrated by people against others!
I was wrong!
I’ve learned of cruelties against a minority by the government of the African state of Uganda. A new law is about to be passed, that sentences these individuals to legal persecution including murder, not only by functionaries of the state, but also by its neighbours and other citizens!

Tambo Award ceremony pictures and film!
This week I will be travelling to South Africa, to receive the Order of the Companions of O.R. Tambo. Aware that I was only one of many, it is an incredible honour for me to be recognised for the work I put towards the abolishment of the Apartheid regime in this most prestigious way. I made the decision to be bestowed the order in person in Pretoria, by the Presidency of the Republic of South Africa, on April 28. Watch this space for further updates and footage of the event.

The economies of the industrialised countries can hardly be imagined without Africa’s natural resources. Network Africa Germany (NAD) recently drew attention to the global competition for two of its metals and minerals, namely lithium and cobalt. Both are needed to achieve clean energy. So far, lithium is irreplaceable. The negative environmental consequences of its production, such as high water consumption and CO₂ emissions, cannot be compared with those of fossil fuels and could be improved.
