IT’S TIME FOR AFRICA TO TELL A NEW STORY

Throughout time, storytelling has largely influenced how people behave and perceive each other across the world. It is this single factor instilled in individuals since childhood that has contributed to stereotyping and prejudice across societies and cultures. Stories have instigated wars and political mudslinging, racial segregation and gender discrimination, generational and cross-country hostility, and bitterness between low and high-income communities. Even Africa is perceived in a certain way because of the stories being told about it.

SOUTH AFRICA LOOKS TO KICKSTART ITS BIOFUELS INDUSTRY

the energy minister said on Monday, almost a decade after the policy to promote biofuels like ethanol and biodiesel was first approved.

A net importer of crude, Africa’s most industrialised economy wants biofuels initially to meet two percent, or about 400 million litres, of the country’s annual fuel consumption to wean itself off oil imports and improve the trade balance.
