  1. When a man or woman is tired of being in a relationship, there are several ways at which they call it quit. Some do not have the mind of standing before their partner, so they end the relationship over the phone. Such was the case of this young South African lady. She disclosed that her boyfriend broke up with her over the phone. Tlaleng revealed that her relationship ended on WhatsApp. After Tlaleng’s instincts packed up unusual vibes between her boyfriend and another lady, she confronted him about it and he owned up to it saying he was seeing the particular lady. The young man obviously didn’t feel any guilt about this as he was straightforward in telling without caring for her feelings. Heartbroken Tlaleng took to Twitter to share screenshots of the messages. Her post reads: “Guess I’ve been a joke for the whole 6 Months he literally laughed at me. My heart is heavy, my soul is shattered. I’m going through the most.”
  2. NIGERIA’S DEATH SENTENCES HIGHEST IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA Nigeria imposed the highest number of death sentences in the sub-Saharan Africa region in 2017 with 621 people put to death, Amnesty International has said. The country bucked the trend seen elsewhere in the region, as Sub-Saharan Africa made great strides in the global fight to abolish the death penalty with a significant decrease in death sentences being imposed. Guinea became the 20th state in sub-Saharan Africa to abolish the death penalty for all crimes, while Kenya abolished the mandatory death penalty for murder. Burkina Faso and Chad also took steps to repeal this punishment with new or proposed laws. The leadership of countries in this region gives fresh hope that the abolition of the ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment is within reach. Unfortunately, some states in Nigeria continue to expand the scope of death sentences,” said Amnesty International’s Secretary General Salil Shetty in the organisation’s 2017 global review of the death penalty. There are a total of 2,285 people on death row in Nigeria, which is also the highest in the region, though no executions were carried out in 2017. Death sentences in the country have spiked massively over the past two years. In 2015, 171 death sentences were handed down, while in 2016 there were 527. Amnesty International recorded a drop in the number of executing countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, from five in 2016 to two in 2017, with only South Sudan and Somalia known to have carried out executions. However, with reports that Botswana and Sudan resumed executions in 2018, the organisation highlighted that this must not overshadow the positive steps being taken by other countries across the region. Elsewhere in Africa, The Gambia signed an international treaty committing the country not to carry out executions and moving to abolish the death penalty. The Gambian President Adama Barrow established an official moratorium (temporary ban) on executions in February 2018. Developments across Sub-Saharan Africa in 2017 exemplified the positive trend recorded globally, with Amnesty International’s research pointing to a further decrease in the global use of the death penalty in 2017. Amnesty International recorded at least 993 executions in 23 countries in 2017, down by 4% from 2016 (1,032 executions) and 39% from 2015 (when the organisation reported 1,634 executions, the highest number since 1989). At least 2,591 death sentences in 53 countries were recorded in 2017, a significant decrease from the record-high of 3,117 recorded in 2016. These figures do not include the thousands of death sentences and executions that Amnesty International believes were imposed and implemented in China, where figures remain classified as a state secret. In addition to Guinea, Mongolia abolished the death penalty for all crimes taking the total of abolitionist states to 106 in 2017. After Guatemala became abolitionist for crimes such as murder, the number of countries to have abolished the death penalty in law or practice now stands at 142. Only 23 countries continued to execute – the same number as in 2016, despite several states resuming executions after a hiatus. Significant steps to reduce the use of the death penalty were also taken in countries that are staunch supporters of it. In Iran, recorded executions reduced by 11% and drug-related executions reduced to 40%. Moves were also made to increase the threshold of drug amounts required to impose a mandatory death penalty. In Malaysia, the anti-drug laws were amended, with the introduction of sentencing discretion in drug trafficking cases. These changes will likely result in a reduction in the number of death sentences imposed in both countries in the future. Indonesia, which executed four people convicted of drug crimes in 2016 in an ill-conceived attempt to tackle drug crime, did not carry out any executions last year and reported a slight decrease in the number of death sentences imposed. However, distressing trends continued to feature in the use of the death penalty in 2017. Fifteen countries imposed death sentences or executed people for drug-related offences, going against international law. The Middle East and North Africa region recorded the highest number of drug-related executions in 2017, while the Asia-Pacific region had the most countries resorting to the death penalty for this type of offence (10 out of 16). Amnesty International recorded drug-related executions in four countries – China (where figures are classified as a state secret), Iran, Saudi Arabia and Singapore. The secrecy that shrouded capital punishment in Malaysia and Viet Nam made it impossible to determine whether executions for drug crimes occurred. Singapore hanged eight people in 2017 – all for drug-related offences and double the amount in 2016. There was a similar trend in Saudi Arabia, where drug-related beheadings rocketed from 14% of total executions in 2016 to 40% in 2017. “Despite strides towards abolishing this abhorrent punishment, there are still a few leaders who would resort to the death penalty as a ‘quick-fix’ rather than tackling problems at their roots with humane, effective and evidence-based policies. Strong leaders execute justice, not people,” said Salil Shetty. “The draconian anti-drug measures widely used in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific have totally failed to address the issue.” Governments also breached several other prohibitions under international law in 2017. At least five people in Iran were executed for crimes committed when they were under 18 and at least 80 others remained on death row, and people with mental or intellectual disabilities were executed or remained under sentence of death in Japan, the Maldives, Pakistan, Singapore and the USA. Amnesty International recorded several cases of people facing the death penalty after “confessing” to crimes as a result of torture or other ill-treatment in Bahrain, China, Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. In Iran and Iraq, some of these “confessions” were broadcast on live television. Although the overall number of executing countries remained the same, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait and United Arab Emirates resumed executions after a hiatus. In Egypt, recorded death sentences increased by about 70% compared to 2016.

According to reports, the Nigerian man was stopped by the police officers while driving and it was discovered he had no driver’s license. In the process of his forceful arrest, the Nigerian man was allegedly stripped Nakked as he was tried to be bundled into their vehicle.

  6. Hearing about Africa, many people think about the numerous peoples and tribes most of which live in extreme poverty. Nevertheless, there are many countries on the continent that enjoy prosperity and have thriving economy. This is not surprising because Africa provides many opportunities for high economic indicators. This is greatly facilitated by a favorable climate, abundant natural resources, and raw materials. From this article, you will find out which country is the richest in Africa. 10. SWAZILAND This state is the smallest on the African continent. The majority of the adult population is employed in agriculture, which is considered the main source of income. People are actively engaged in cultivation of cotton, sugar cane, tobacco, rice, corn, pineapples, and other crops. Animal husbandry is also well developed. Most of GDP (45%) falls on the industrial sector: mining of coal, iron ore, production of sugar, timber, and textile. Economically, Swaziland is heavily dependent on South Africa, which is its main trading partner – 80% of imports and more than 60% of exported goods. Despite the numerous achievements, 2/3 of the population of the country live in extreme poverty, the unemployment rate remains high. According to the latest data, over 40% of the able-bodied population is unemployed. 9. TUNISIA Tunisia is the ninth richest country in Africa. It’s washed by the Mediterranean Sea. The basis of the local economy is agriculture. About 50 million olive trees grow here. Therefore, one of the main sources of income is the export of olives and olive oil. Tunisia confidently takes the 4th place in this sphere. In total, the country produces up to 10% of the world’s stock of olive oil. Another lucrative area is growing of date fruits which Tunisians love to eat themselves. The state is on the 9th place in the world on the supply of dates. One more lucrative area is a well-developed tourism industry: a warm and comfortable climate, proximity to the Mediterranean, magnificent white sandy beaches, European service and world-famous thalassotherapy centers. All these factors combined with a rich history of the state attract hundreds of thousands of tourists to Tunisia. The country is also rich in oil resources which are produced in more than 5 million tons per year. This fully meets the domestic needs of the state and also generates significant income from export – up to 40% per year. Tunisia is one of the most developed African states. Half of its inhabitants are in the middle class status. 8. NAMIBIA The country is located on the territory of South Africa. Almost half of the able-bodied population is employed in agriculture. However, most of the revenues to the budget come from the mining, sale of diamonds and uranium. Namibia is the largest exporter of these resources in the world market. In the bowels of the earth, there are also large deposits of gold, silver, copper, tin, zinc, and lead. Recently, fishing and tourism have started to develop actively. Although the state is among the rich African countries, there is rather high unemployment – over 30%. Salaries of workers are relatively low. 7. EGYPT Egypt is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea in the north and by the Red Sea in the east. The two seas are connected by the Suez Canal. The collection of fees from foreign ships passing the Suez Canal is the main source of state revenue. This measure brings more than one billion dollars to the treasury annually. Other weighty sources of replenishment of the budget are oil and a developed system of tourism which is contributed by hot climate, the proximity of the two seas and the rich history. Agriculture continues to play a significant role in the life of the country, but its share in exports fell to 15.4%. Nevertheless, some problems are particularly acute for Egypt. The general impoverishment of the state continues. The threat of hunger is very actual. The unemployment rate is high – more than 19%. 6. SOUTH AFRICA South Africa has quite strong world positions. It is on the list of twenty countries with the most developed economy (G20), has an impressive reserve of natural resources. Production of diamonds, platinum, gold exports is widespread, as well as engineering, manufacturing of equipment and chemical products. Despite the arid climate, agriculture and fishing develop actively, wine-making flourishes. All these factors contribute to the growth of the state economy. According to estimates of specialists, GDP per person in South Africa is 10 thousand dollars. The standard of living is quite high. But the difference between the richest and the poorest parts of the population is still enormous. 5. LIBYA Libya is a country in North Africa, the fourth largest African state. About 90% of its territory is occupied by deserts. Previously it was the Italian colony. In the middle of the last century, Libya gained independence. Thanks to oil production that began in the 1960s, the beggar country quickly turned into a prosperous state. Huge oil reserves are still the main local wealth. Unfortunately, the war that lasted for several years made great negative changes to the life and economy of Libya. Oil production and exports fell several times. The lack of cash led to unprecedented inflation. In the conditions of political instability and shock, the import of goods into the country practically ceased. The prices for essential products jumped to incredible heights. The budget deficit has reached enormous proportions. In case of maintaining low oil prices, Libya will not be able to cover it. According to the World Bank, even with favorable development of events, the state may approach previous volumes of oil exports no earlier than 2020. 4. ALGERIA Algeria is the largest state on the continent located in North Africa and close to the Mediterranean Sea. Until the 60s, the country was considered a French colony. After gaining independence from France in 1964, Algeria’s economy began to develop at a rapid pace. Now the state is in the lead in the production of natural gas and holds the 4th place in the world for its exports. Algeria has an impressive oil reserve, ranks the 15th in the world and 11th in terms of oil exports. Sales of oil and gas jointly bring the country 30% of GDP and more than 60% of budget revenues. Despite impressive achievements, many able-bodied citizens of Algeria do not have a specialized education. Unemployment is quite high. There is a sharp shortage of professional staff at many enterprises. 3. BOTSWANA The climatic conditions in Botswana can’t be called favorable. This country has no access to the sea. More than 70% of its territory is occupied by the large Kalahari Desert which dictates its strict laws. Despite the disadvantageous location, the state is rich in minerals. It produces gold, oil, copper, nickel, zinc, lead, coal, chrome, sulfur, platinum, and silver. The country firmly holds the leading position in the extraction of diamonds which are famous for their highest quality and are often used for making jewelry. 2. GABON The second richest country in Africa is Gabon. Until 1960, it was considered a colony of France. The combination of a low population (1.8 million people), an impressive supply of high-quality wood, oil, uranium and manganese ore made Gabon one of the most prosperous states on the continent. The local standard of living is much higher than in most African countries. However, speaking about the welfare of Gabon, we should note the huge difference between the major cities and small villages located in the deep African jungle where life hardly changed over the centuries. 80% of the citizens are urban residents. 1. EQUATORIAL GUINEA Equatorial Guinea is the richest African country. This tiny state is situated in the central part of the continent, very close to the equator. The budget is replenished by a large oil reserve. The good geographic location of the state also maintains the best economy in Africa. There is a direct access to the Atlantic Ocean. Oil is delivered to Europe and America from there. Due to the export of oil, Equatorial Guinea has a high GDP rate by which it has bypassed many European countries. Other sources of income are the cultivation of coffee and cocoa beans, the export of sawn timber. The fishing system is very developed. Now you know what the best country in Africa is in terms of economy. We hope that it was interesting to read this article.
  7. Do you know which is the most populated country in Africa? There are many countries on the huge African continent and there are millions of people living on them. Yet, which of these countries has the largest population? Let’s check out the statistics. DID YOU KNOW THAT YOUR COUNTRY IS THE LARGEST COUNTRY IN AFRICA BY POPULATION? Bingo! Nigeria has the biggest population in the whole African continent. The today’s figure that shows the size of the Nigerian population is 194,556,463. The number is based on the data rendered by the latest United Nations research in March 2018. Today, Nigeria has the 7th rank among the biggest populations in the whole world. The number of people who currently live in Nigeria makes 2.57% of the entire world population. Judging on the area the country occupies, the density of the population in Nigeria is about 215 persons per km2 (or about 550 persons per mi2). Nigeria embraces 910,770km2 and it’s quite a lot. However, even with such a space, the majority of people keep on living (or willing to live) in cities, not in rural lands. With the constant growth of the population, cities will soon become quite overcrowded with people. The growth of the population is very significant. In 1955, the country was inhabited by about 41 million people. Today, the population has grown, almost five times as big. Within just 60 years! Scientists claim that Nigeria’s growth rate is such that by 2050, it will be the third largest population in the world! However, Nigeria is not the only fast growing country in Africa in terms of population. Let’s take a brief look at several other African countries that are quickly catching up with Nigeria. TOP MOST POPULOUS COUNTRIES IN AFRICA Here’s a short list of ten most heavily populated countries in Africa aside Nigeria: Ethiopia has the second rank after Nigeria among the most highly populated African countries. Now, it is a home to 107,534,882 persons and the growth rates are even higher than in Nigeria. 19,947,292 in 1955, the country has grown its population almost by 5.5 times! Wow! Egypt follows Ethiopia. From 23,523,384 in 1955, it has reached 99,375,741 in accordance with the most recent surveys DR Congo has 84,004,989 million of people, which is 6.4 times more than in 1955! Tanzania follows DR Congo in the ranking of the most populated countries of the African continent with its 59,091,392, which is 6.5 times bigger than in 1955! South Africa has a little bit less impressive figures and a more stable situation with the population growth: from 15,376,829 in 1955 to 57,398,421 in 2018 Kenya shows an incredible speed in the population growth: from 6,979,931 in 1955 to 50, 950,879 in 2018. By 7 times! Uganda has grown by 7.3 times. From 5,898,835 in 1955 to 44,270,563 in 2018 It’s one of the youngest countries in Africa with the median age of the population about 16 years Algeria has the eighth rank on the list with its 42,008,054. Sudan shows a pretty fast growth with 41,511,526 in 2018! Morocco is the tenth on this list with its current population of 36,191,805. That’s it! Now you know the answer to the question “What’s the biggest African population?” and which countries are showing all signs of further growth in the nearest future.

  9. A five-year-old schoolgirl drowned in a pit latrine after falling in when she went to the toilet between lessons in South Africa. Lumka Mkhetwa was feared abducted when she vanished while at school in Bizana in the Eastern Cape and a police search was launched for the youngster. But her lifeless body was found the following day after the pit toilet was emptied and searched. The tragedy happened at the Luna Primary School, the Education Minister has confirmed. Angie Motshekga apologised for the death of the Grade R pupil. She said in an official statement: ‘The death of a child in such an undignified manner is completely unacceptable and incredibly disturbing. ‘I would like to send my sincere condolence to the family of Lumka Mkhetwa. I cannot begin to know the trauma the parents are experiencing now. ‘It is truly a tragic incident and my sympathies are with them.’ Counselling has been offered to staff and pupils at the school. The incident was similar to one at a school outside Polokwane four years ago when Michael Komape, five, drowned in a pit toilet. His family went on to claim damages from the State. Lumka’s father Vuyani Mkehtwa said he believed from the position his daughter was found in that she could have been pushed rather than fallen. He told Despeath Live: ‘We do not understand how this happened. We were under the impression that children are escorted to the toilet at that age. ‘We have serious questions about the responsibility of the teachers but we have received a visit from officials, who have promised to investigate.’ Mkhethwa last saw his daughter on Monday morning as she was leaving for school and has been told his teacher last saw her at 1pm. He described Lumka as a happy child who enjoyed playing with other children and was excited about having finally started school this year. He said:’We are heartbroken because we send our children to school thinking they will be safe. ‘Although we do not know the details of how this tragedy happened from how she was found it does not look like she was using the toilet because she still had her underwear on. ‘From the position of her legs it leaves us with the fear that she may have been pushed.’ The national education department said it is doing ‘everything in its capacity’ to try to upgrade pit latrine toilets and sanitation at schools in South Africa. Section 27 executive director Mark Heywood, who runs a public interest law centre hit out at Motshekga over Lumka’s death. He said: ‘I read her statement and I absolutely believe that she is crying crocodile tears. ‘She knows about the repulsive and shocking state of toilets in public schools in remote areas. ‘The problem is that she and her people know about these deadly toilets but there is no political will to fix them. ‘They continue to make excuses. It’s not a matter of lack of resources or technology. They simply do not care’ he said. Captain Edith Mjoko of the local police said: ‘No foul play is suspected. The body is still with the police for a post-mortem and inquest will take place’.

    Top 10 Most Popular Language in Africa

    What is the most spoken language in Africa? This is a huge continent with different parts of which are distinguished by unique customs and culture, including those that relate to languages. We will help you understand their diversity and highlight the most popular ones. According to linguists, there are 1500-2000 languages in Africa. The following four main groups can be distinguished from them: Afro-Asian (approximately 200 languages) covers almost the whole of North Africa. Nilo-Saharan includes about 140 languages spoken by about eleven million people in Central and East Africa. Niger-Saharan covers two-thirds of the African population. The main branch is the Niger-Congo group, which includes more than 1000 languages with about 200 million speakers. The Bantu languages in Central, South and East Africa form a subgroup of the Niger-Congo group. The Khoisan contains about thirty languages of the western part of South Africa. All African languages are considered the official languages of the African Union. What is the most spoken language in Africa? We invite you to consider top 10. 1. ENGLISH Most widely spoken language in Africa is English. According to several resources, there are around 700 million English speakers in Africa. The black continent does not differ from other regions of the world in this sense. The importance of English in Africa is also due to the fact that some countries were European colonies until the middle of the 20th century. After the British colonization, the local population had no choice but to learn this language. English speech can be heard on the streets of such countries as Botswana, Gambia, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, etc. A total of about 23 states use it. At the moment, English is the most spoken official language in Africa. 2. ARABIC Arabic is the Semitic language used by more than 280 million people around the world. It is official in Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania, Libya, Eritrea, and some other states. Also, residents of many countries use it as non-official language. Dialect can depend on the region. Striving to understand the cultural characteristics of a particular country, it’s worth taking into account this nuance. In any case, you first need to learn the general standard. 3. FRENCH 120 million people in 24 countries of the black continent speak French, but with their own language peculiarities. African French is only the language of 0ral communication but the number and magnitude of deviations from the classic French language are so great that it is impossible not to single out this dialect in a separate post 4. SWAHILI Swahili is one of the most widely spoken African languages. It belongs to the Bantu language group being its largest representative. Experts estimate that about 100 million people speak this language, mainly in central and eastern Africa. Such a large number of Swahili speakers is due to the fact that it has become the language of international communication in the region and today it is used from Mozambique to Somalia and from the western shores of the Indian Ocean to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The uniqueness of Swahili is that it is the only native African language that has been able to achieve such position. At the same time, Swahili is native only for 5 million people. The most popular languages of international communication (English, French, and Arabic) were imposed by the colonialists on the black continent. Since 2004, Swahili has become the first African language to be recognized as the official language of the African Union. The origin of Swahili is the result of the merger of the languages of Arab and Indian immigrants and the local Bantu population. Today Swahili uses Latin (this is the merit of European missionaries). Till the nineteenth century, this language used Arabic script. In the modern world, even a very rare language is on everyone’s lips. A paradox, isn’t it? The names of Disney heroes of the popular cartoon “The Lion King” are taken from Swahili: Simba in Swahili means “lion”, Pumbaa is “lazy”, and Rafiki is a “friend”. And the name of the soundtrack for the cartoon “Akuna Matata” is translated from Swahili as “no problem”. 5. HAUSA Among the languages of the Semito-Hamitic family, there is the Hausa language which is used by more than 50 million people. This is one of the main languages of Niger, Nigeria, Ghana, Benin, Cameroon. Despite the fact that some features of Hausa are characteristic for many Sudanese languages, it has an undeniable connection with the Semitic, CuSh!tic, and Berber languages. The question of the place of the Hausa language among other African languages has long been very controversial and in all classifications, it was placed in isolation from all the languages of Africa. However, in reality in the southern part of Northern Nigeria and in the lower reaches of Logone-et-Chari, south of the Lake Chad, and also to the east of it, there are several dozen tribes whose languages are very close to the Hausa. They are sometimes called Sudan-Hamitic or Chado-Hamitic languages. 6. OROMO Oromo is the name of the language and one of the African peoples. The language of Oromo is native to about 35 million people on the planet. Most users speak Oromo in these African countries: Somalia Peninsula, Ethiopia, Kenya (northern part of the country). There is a written language with a slightly modified Latin alphabet called Qubee. But the Arabic alphabet is also used. In the past, the Ethiopian alphabet was the basis of Oromo writing. 7. YORUBA The Yoruba language is based on the Latin alphabet. It is used by around 30 million people, mainly in the west and southwest of Nigeria, as well as in the central and western areas of Benin, in the eastern districts of Central Togo. The Yoruba language is divided into eight main dialects, differing mostly phonetically. The division into dialects roughly corresponds to tribal division. 8. IGBO It is the language of the Igbo people, widespread in the southeast of Nigeria. The number of Igbo speakers is estimated at 24 million people. The language is divided into a number of dialects, some of which are regarded as independent languages. Igbo is written on the Latin graphical basis, dialects have their own written traditions. There is no single literary norm. Since the end of the 20th century, the so-called central Igbo used according to the norms of the central zone of language distribution became increasingly popular, especially in the sphere of written use. 9. AMHARIC Amharic is from the Semitic family of languages and is the state language of Ethiopia. Around 18-21 million people speak it, most of them live in Ethiopia. Also, Amharic speakers can be found in a number of other countries, in particular in Eritrea, Canada, the United States, and Sweden. The name “Amharic” comes from the name of the Amhara region in the north of Ethiopia, which is considered the historical center of the Amharic language. 10. SHONA Shona is the language of the Bantu group. It is prevalent in South Africa, mainly in Zimbabwe. Today it is used by more than 10 million people. We hope that it was interesting for you to find out about most spoken languages in Africa. Learn English and French but don’t forget about traditional dialects!
  11.
