Opinion: Lack of political will: politicians are the cause of Malawi being the poorest country on earth By Saunders Jumah
President of Malawi, Peter Mutharika
Malawi, despite her despotic beginning at independence, had a visionary foundation. Despite having a founding president who had his vices, but a foundation stone for the future was laid.
The problem came in 1994, clearly the founders of democracy had no clue as to what government entails. Myopia of innovation.
In 1980 Malawi became the first nation in the SADC region, if not out of the continent, to have an Ethanol plant in Nkota-Kota district. There was a vision that in future, fossil fuels will not be sustainable, hence the need for green fuels to be planned.
Opinion: The African Union may be grasping that solutions to security problems must be home-grown By MUTHONI THANG'WA
When a Kenyan thinks about Tana, I have no doubt that would be the Tana River, whose waters feed from the Aberdare mountains in Nyeri County. The river winds around Mt Kenya in search of a way to bequeath her water to the Indian Ocean.
Tana River County is named in her honour. En route to the Kenyan Coast she feeds Kenya’s hydroelectric power dams Masinga and Kiambere and passes through Meru, Kitui and Garissa counties.
Following her incredible appearance and performance as a breaking artist on Coke Studio Africa,Shellsy Baronet has paired up with Mozambican star, Mr. Bow for her new single titled “Ma Lova.”
Shellsy Baronet has been in the market for quite a very short time but has already won the hearts of many across Africa and in Europe. Being the amazingly talented young artist that she is, there’s definitely more in store from her as a multitalented entertainer.

Vocalist, song writer and music entrepreneur, Lady Litsa is testament to many that with the right market and audience, getting top placement on music charts isn’t rocket science. Backing local music is at the heart of what TurnUp Music does and it is a great pleasure to see one of our stars, Lady Litsa, topping charts on Vodacom Live with her single, “You Are The One.”
Lady Litsa has been obsessed with music from a very young age and intrigued by how songs were conceptualised and began writing and performing her own music at the age of 12. Her inspiration for the song “You Are The One” was born out of a real love story of chemistry, love and that feeling of ‘no one else exists.’ “You Are The One” was written for love, about love and the butterflies it brings.

Kenyan President: Uhuru Kenyatta
From the famous State House breakfast with members of the Kenya Editors’ Guild early in his first term in 2013, onto the present crack down, President Uhuru Kenyatta has enjoyed a love-hate relationship with the media.
The situation has never been this bad, however as with the current onslaught that has seen a shutdown of the three biggest TV stations in the country.
KTN News of the Standard Group, NTV of the Nation Media Group and Citizen TV and the Kikuyu-language Inooro TV of Royal Media Services were forced off air on January 30, after defying government warnings and broadcasting live from the venue of the contentious “swearing-in” of Opposition leader Raila Odinga.
