James Woods Nkhutabasa LILONGWE (Maravi Post)—Speaking on Arise TV( Watch him on this you tube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEjKrLxYMho), London based Africa Affairs Analyst James Woods said the fallen former Cuban leader Fidel Castro is viewed as a hero in Africa. Said Woods: “The late Fidel Castro once said “Condemn me. It does not matter. History will absolve me.” — Oct. 16, 1953. History can be rather fickle, and not always that forthcoming with praise. Castro is probably the most divisive and controversial figure of the 20th Century. There are those who saw him as a ruthless dictator and those who saw him as a messiah who fought for the rights of the oppressed, for equality and solidarity. Woods further said that “the view that one takes as to whether he was a villain due to his dictatorship and repressive government or a revolutionary hero, a liberator who fought for the independence and freedoms of others from the chains of oppression and brought world-class standards of health and education to Cuba is all matter of political ideology. This is my opinion. With this political ideology in mind, I spoke on how Africa has viewed the legacy of Castro, ” wrote Woods. Woods observed that Fidel Castro’s Foreign Policy benefited Africa as follows: “Castro’s foreign policy to Africa was borne out of two convictions: (1) The revolution that ousted Batista in 1959 was made possible by the Afro-Cubans whose ancestors were slaves from West and Central Africa (2) The culture and way of life in Cuba has been influenced to some extent by the Afro-Cubans. Note: As of present race issues are a main topic despite the emphasis on equality. With the two points in mind Castro may have had a soft spot for Africa. Castro and Che Guevara visited or sent teams of Cubans to numerous African countries from the 1960s to understand their struggle, offer technical assistance, medical doctors and fight side by side to win their independence from the colonial masters.

Agriculture Commodities Exchange for Africa (ACE) has said vendors play an integral part in the agriculture value chain as they offer farmers primary markets for their commodities. Speaking in Malawi on the sidelines of the launch of ACE Rural Strategy 2020 in the capital Lilongwe on Friday, ACE chief executive officer Kristian Schach Moller said they have been compelled to develop the strategy because the adoption of their services by farmers and small rural enterprises is low despite the benefits. Moller: We link farmersSaid Moller: “Even though there is a perception that vendors are bad in the agriculture value chain, they are important because they play a crucial role in the whole marketing chain by offering farmers ready markets within their areas. “In fact, we need more vendors because not all farmers can access structured markets.” ACE links farmers to markets and addresses key gaps in agricultural value chains that prevent farmers from becoming integrated and competitive market actors by providing essential supporting functions to the value chain. Currently, ACE is working with 50 000 farmers in the country, but with this new strategy the number will rise to one million farmers, according to Moller. Apart from ACE, Malawi also has AHL Commodities Exchange (AHCX). n
Rafa Tells Truth To His Players – Good News Could Be Close8:33 am, Monday, April 10th, 2017 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 4 CommentsNewcastle manager Rafa Benitez spoke to reporters as usual following one of our poorer performances of the season and that has to be difficult for any manager, when he has seen his team play so badly and give the opposition so many chances via our own mistakes. But that’s what surprisingly happened on Saturday at Hillsborough after two solid performances against Wigan and Burton at home, when the lads delivered the required 6 points in two games that could have been a little dodgy for us.Rafa Benitez – too many mistakes – keep your chins up We lost our position at the top of the league and if Brighton can win their last five games they will be Championship and there’s nothing we could do about that. At the moment it’s out of our hands but things can change quickly of course. This is what Rafa has said as reported in the Chronicle: “We were making these kinds of m..
