Thinking in English : The African Uprising

Posted by paa.kwesi on Thu, 06/28/2007 - 21:32

From the Archives, and before I got to thinking that the name "Africa" ought to be gotten rid of :) This is a fictional piece imagining the sort of continent one would return home to after several years of roaming the world...

The African Uprising, Jan 31 2005

In this century Africans have had enough of having their identity being defined by other
peoples. I speak as a member of the Fante peoples of West Africa. This has probably already raised some hackles. Relax.


Thinking in English : Celtel, the first great continental company

Posted by paa.kwesi on Mon, 06/11/2007 - 22:59

Celtel just announced last week that they have expanded their One network into East Africa: http://www.celtel.com/en/news/press-release52/index.html. Previously the network covered Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. Now they have added in RoC, DRC and Gabon. With their properties in Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Burkina Faso, they're well-placed to put fire to the whole continent with cheap communication! Indeed, once the Nigerian Celtel is linked up to the One network, we'll see huge connectivity benefits just because of the immense size of the Nigerian audience.
