South Africa: N2 Project to Make Travelling Easier

The N2 Wild Coast project will improve mobility and connectivity between provinces and towns, says Transport Minister Joe Maswanganyi.

In an update on the project following his meeting with Eastern Cape Premier Phumulo Masualle, MEC for Roads and Public Works Thandiswa Marawu and MEC for Transport Weziwe Tikana, Minister Maswanganyi said the N2 is a strategic route.

The N2 traverses four provinces, namely, Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga.

“As government, we are aware that an investment in this road can have major socio-economic benefits for these provinces,” said the Minister in a joint statement with Premier Masualle following their meeting at the Eastern Cape State House.

In the Eastern Cape, the N2 Wild Coast stretches from East London to the Eastern Cape border with KwaZulu-Natal. Of the total length, some 112km would be on a new “greenfields” alignment between the Ndwalane (near Port St Johns) and the Mtamvuna River (near Port Edward).

The road will include two mega-bridge structures on the Msikaba and Mtentu Rivers, seven additional major river bridges and five interchange bridges.

The remainder of the project comprises the upgrading of the existing roads, mainly the R61 (already underway) and the future construction of ring roads in Mthatha, Idutwya and Butterworth.

Once complete, the route will be approximately 85km shorter than the current N2 alignment from Mthatha to Port Shepstone and will be up to three hours faster, particularly for heavy freight vehicles.

“Economically, the project will result in significantly faster delivery times and lower transportation costs in terms of freight. It will improve mobility and connectivity between provinces and towns within and between provinces,” said Minister Maswanganyi.

Expanding tourism opportunities

The Wild Coast has a lot of tourism potential and the project is expected to improve access, mobility and attractiveness for tourists.

It will open up the provinces’ agricultural potential by improving access to markets through an improved road.

In terms of local economic development, the project will yield significant local SMME business opportunities, both directly and indirectly.

The South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) will ensure that local SMMEs have a significant involvement in the project through training of local small, macro and medium enterprises (SMMEs).

The roads agency will also ensure the training and development of SMMEs and labour during construction, as well as the development of local hard rock quarries and sand mines among others.

“The positive economic impact will be felt by places such as Port St Johns, Lusikisiki and Mzamba, as well as towns such as Flagstaff, Bizana and Holy Cross. The mandate given to SANRAL is to ensure that locals benefit from both jobs and business opportunities.”

Funding

When it comes to the funding of the project, the budget for the upgrading of the existing N2 and R61 portions of the N2 Wild Coast project has since 2011 been funded from the SANRAL non-toll budget.

The total budget required for the N2 Wild Coast Road greenfields portion is approximately R8.5 – R9 billion.

Funding for the two bridges has already been made available through the Department of Transport.

“The ministry will be making an announcement as soon as I have completed my interaction with the SANRAL Board in this regard,” said Minister Maswanganyi.

Cameroon: Mercy Ships – Free Transportation, Feeding of Patients

By Christopher Jator

The mobile hospital, Africa Mercy, was officially received by three members of government in Douala yesterday.

In view of ensuring that patients receive free surgeries and healthcare from Africa Mercy, by the international faith-based organisation, Mercy Ships, throughout the 10 months of stay in Douala, government has taken the disposition to transport patients to Douala and then to the seaport. In his keynote address during the welcome ceremony at the Douala Seaport in the presence of the Minister of Transport, Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo’o, the Minister of Public Health, André Mama Fouda, pointed out that all beneficiaries who are from the 10 regions of the country will be hosted at the Laquintinie Hospital, Gaenyco-Obstetric and Paediatric Hospital as well as the Nylon District Hospital all in the city of Douala.

Mercy Ships has equipped wards in these health establishments whereby the patients will also be hospitalised. The beneficiaries will be gathered at the Party House in Bonanjo every day in order to be programmed for the treatment per day. Their feeding and all that is needed for lodging have been prepared and made ready. To begin with, he said the patients will be directed from their local hospitals to Douala, where they are expected to receive treatment free of charge. Already, three thousand have so far been considered for the treatment and while registration is currently going on in order to meet the expected 5000 beneficiaries. Furthermore, government has in place a special technical team to evacuate waste from the ship,

supply potable water and remove polluted oils, among other things. It was disclosed that some 11000 Cameroonians have been recruited to work as volunteer in the ship throughout the ship’s stay in the country. Speaking during an official reception of the faith-based organisation at the seaport, the Managing Director of Mercy Ships, Warrie Blackburn, expressed gratitude to Cameroon’s First Lady, Chantal Biya, for coming to the aid of patients to alleviate suffering.

Apart from surgeries, the expected 5000 patients will be treated in the area of obstetric fistula, ophthalmic, orthopaedic, dental, and palliative care. First treatment will begin in the first week of September. Between now and first week of September, the healthcare mission will be setting up equipments, arranging wards while preparing to begin. Private hospital ship will also improve the local healthcare infrastructure and build capacity by providing training opportunities for medical professionals along with curative surgical interventions.

Member of the SANRAL Board, Mr Matete Matete

Acting Director General, Chris Hlabisa

Members of the media

Ladies and gentlemen

Today I met with the Eastern Cape Premier Mr Phumulo Masualle, MEC for Roads and Public Works Ms Thandiswa Marawu and MEC for Transport Weziwe Tikana to give them an update about the N2 Wild Coast Project.

As you may know the N2 is a strategic route that traverses four provinces, namely, Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal and Mpumalanga. As government we are aware that an investment in this road can have major socio economic benefits for these provinces.

Today, we are here to talk to you about the N2 as it relates to the Eastern Cape. Known as the N2 Wild Coast Project, this is one of the eighteen (18) Strategic Integrated Project (SIP 3) that was approved by Cabinet.

In the Eastern Cape, the N2 Wild Coast stretch from East London to the Eastern Cape boarder. Of the total length, some 112 km would be on a new “greenfields” alignment between the Ndwalane (near Port St Johns) and the Mtamvuna River (near Port Edward).

The road will include two (2) mega-bridge structures on the Msikaba and Mtentu Rivers, Seven (7) additional major river bridges and five (5) interchange bridges.

The remainder of the project comprises the upgrading of the existing roads, mainly the R61 already underway and the future construction of ring roads at Mthatha, Idutwya and Butterworth.

Once complete the route will be approximately 85 km shorter than the current N2 alignment from Mthatha to Port Shepstone and will be up to three (3) hours faster, particularly for heavy freight vehicles.

Ladies and gentlemen, we see the N2 Wild Coast as not only a road project but catalyst for other developments.

Economically, the project will result in significantly faster delivery times and lower transportation costs in terms of freight. It will improve mobility and connectivity between provinces and towns within and between provinces.

The Wild Coast has a lot of tourism potential and this project will improve access, mobility and attractiveness for tourists. Also, it will open up the provinces agricultural potential by improving access to markets through an improved road.

In terms of Local Economic Development, the project will yield significant Local SMME/business opportunities, both directly and indirectly.

SANRAL will ensure that local SMMEs have a significant involvement in the project through the following measures:

Upfront training of local SMMEs (already underway);

A minimum 30% CPG goal for all road infrastructure projects including sub allocations for various levels of contractors linked to local target areas as well as local suppliers of goods and services;

Unbundling of a minimum of 14 grade 4-7 CE and GB contracts for relocation of affected households and the construction of local access roads;

Training and development of SMMEs and labour during construction;

The development of local hard rock quarries and sand mines;

The implementation of various community development projects; and;

The use of Targeted Enterprises for 20%-30% of the consultants design work + additional opportunities for local professionals

The positive economic impact will be felt by places such as Port St Johns, Lusikisiki and Mzamba, as well as towns such as Flagstaff, Bizana and Holy Cross. The mandate given to SANRAL is to ensure that locals benefit from both jobs and business opportunities.

Ladies and gentlemen, a road is not just a road. It links communities to other social services provided by government and this road will certainly improve access to health care, education and other social services.

The budget for the upgrading of the existing N2 and R61 portions of the N2 Wild Coast project has since 2011 been funded from the SANRAL non-toll budget.

The total budget required for the N2 Wild Coast Road greenfields portion is approximately R8.5 – 9.0 billion.

Funding for the two bridges has already been made available through the Department of Transport.

The Ministry will be making an announcement as soon as I have completed my interaction with the SANRAL Board in this regard.

In conclusion, I take this opportunity to thank the Premier, the Eastern Cape Provincial Government, the PICC, Political Oversight Committee, Mayors and affected Districts and Municipalities, Traditional Leaders, Business Chambers and the affected Communities for the support and enthusiasm that they have shown for this project thus far.

As we roll it out, we are hopeful that the same spirit of collaboration and cooperation will continue.

I thank you.

Kagame Won By 99% but Will Still Share Power – a Peep Into Rwanda’s All-Inclusive Governance Model

opinionBy James Munyaneza

Today is Inauguration Day in Rwanda. Paul Kagame will be sworn in for the fourth time as president after an election that only cemented his undisputed popularity among the people of Rwanda.

That Kagame would easily sweep to victory, no matter who his opponents in the poll were, was a foregone conclusion. Here is a man who has worked for the better part of his adulthood to earn the utmost trust and confidence of all the people of his country.

And there was no short-cut. To earn the trust of the people of Rwanda was never going to be effortless for anyone considering the criminality that for long dogged the high and mighty in this country, culminating into the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi that claimed a million plus innocent lives. It has been a long, tiring journey.

But if anyone was ever going to restore confidence of a broken and shattered society in a government, Kagame is certainly that person. Today, the people of Rwanda have become so used to his exceptional levels of dedicated service and consistency they are almost taking it for granted.

Yet, in all honesty, it sometimes feels like a dream to those who lived under previous governments to see Rwanda’s fortunes dramatically being turned around in less than a generation – with the country going on to become the safest African nation (World Economic Forum, Gallup Poll (US) surveys), the most improved country in ease of doing business globally (World Bank’s Doing Business reports), the second African country where it is best to be born a girl (Royal Commonwealth Society and Plan-UK), Africa’s third least corrupt country (Transparency International), among other feats.

Nonetheless, the people of Rwanda, the same people who went to the polls on August 4 to pick their next leader, are firsthand witnesses to this transformation. They have lived it and seen it all unfold before their very eyes. Each of these accomplishments is a result of meticulous and often ambitious policies that have resulted in life-changing actions on the ground.

Yet, despite all these gains, the country’s economy remained very small (at a GDP per capita of just $US738.6 as of 2016, despite having more than tripled in two decades), which is still far from representing the true aspirations of the people of Rwanda. The private sector is still weak and the economy needs more substantial FDIs; the country’s already much improved competitiveness needs further overhaul; efforts to link Rwanda to the seaports of East Africa through a standard gauge railway remain pretty much at the nascent stage; while the country’s trade deficit continues to widen, sometimes by two digits.

To the overwhelming majority of Rwandans, no one was better placed than a tested-and-trusted Kagame to lead the country in the foreseeable future.

Equally significant, for a people that had for long lived under autocratic, abusive and genocidal governments to have a leadership that’s pro-people and pro-inclusivity even when they have won a resounding mandate from the people, it was an unnecessary gamble to let go of such a leadership in the name of conforming to inconsistently applied standard that someone else feels fits Africa.

It therefore did not come as a surprise when nearly 4 million people petitioned parliament to give them a chance to revisit Article 101 of the constitution that barred Kagame from seeking another term in office. A subsequent referendum in December 2015 saw 98 per cent of voters backing the changes to the supreme law.

This was a clear indication of what the outcome of the presidential election itself would look like.

But there were other factors behind Kagame’s 98.79 per cent win. One of them being the fact that as many as eight opposition parties (including three that had previously fielded candidates against Kagame) backed his candidacy this time round and their leaders were vocal on the campaign trail in support of the RPF-Inkotanyi flag-bearer.

Now, this kind of unity among political actors is a rarity – globally. Unity among different political parties and consensual-rather-than-confrontational politics have played a key part in Rwanda’s post-Genocide recovery and healing.

The arrangement is such that no single political party will monopolise power even if it wins elections 100 per cent. This is entrenched in the laws of the land. For instance, the constitution stipulates that the ruling political organisation shall not hold more than 50 per cent of cabinet seats, while the President shall not come from the same political organisation as the Speaker of Lower House.

But there is also an unwritten tradition that has seen other strategic seats consistently go to opposition parties or independent politicians. For instance, the current Senate president is not affiliated to any known political party, while the Prime Minister belongs to the Social Democratic Party. This spirit and principle permeates through all layers of leadership.

That this power-sharing arrangement was devised by Rwandans and championed by those who in fact had legitimacy to do otherwise, as is the case in most other countries, speaks to the nobility and rare qualities that characterise Kagame as a person and leader.

Kagame has restored a strong sense of belief, pride and belonging among Rwandans. Never before have Rwandans believed in their individual and collective potential to become the best that they can possibly be.

Yet I have seen some foreign journalists ferociously criticise this pro-people and progressive leader and, by extension, his people’s aspirations. They have relentlessly attacked his outstanding reputation, even openly discouraging other Africans from drawing a lesson or two from Rwanda and its leader. There are also some that want to be seen to be neutral. It’s wrong. Journalists should stand for the truth.

The people of Rwanda and their government need to be supported, rather than unfairly attacked, in their continued legitimate aspirations and genuine strides toward a future they deserve.

Cameroon: Hospital Ship Decks in Douala

By Christopher Jator

The medical mission is placed under the supervision of the First Lady, Mrs. Chantal Biya, and under the auspices of the Prime Minister, Philemon Yang.

Over 4500 patients begin receiving medical care today through an operation that will end June 2018. The largest non-government hospital ship, Mercy Ships, arrived in Douala at about mid day yesterday. On hand to welcome the medical team was Cyrus Ngo’o, General Manager of the seaport. A brief moment of exchange between the seaport authority and the captain of the mobile hospital, John Borrow, during which both men harped on their stay, took place in the watchful eyes of media men and women. On the invitation of the President Paul Biya, the organisation will offer general and orthopaedic surgery, non cancerous deformity, plastic surgery, congenital abnormalities, obstetric fistula, cataract and dental care, among many other diseases. All care is free of charge. It is equipped with X-Ray, CT Scan, laboratory services and Nikon digital microscope for remote diagnosis. Onboard satellite communication system transmits diagnoses and other data. In the course of their stay in the country, the humanitarian organisation will carry out its care mission under the supervision of the First Lady, Mrs. Chantal Biya, and auspices of the Prime Minister, Philemon Yang. Authorities of the Port Authority of Douala revealed that they will carry out some basic services during their 10 months stay such as regular patrols on land on sea, reinforce controls, potable water supplies, waste removal (medical waste, polluted oils, kitchen waste, waste water). Built in Denmark in 1980 and acquired in 1999, the ocean-going vessel with a crew capacity of 474 measures 152 metres in length and 23.7 metres width. The vessel is divided into different compartments together occupying a surface area of about 1200 metres square. The hospital includes five operating theatres, recovery, intensive care, and hospitalisation wards, totalling 82 patient beds.

Gouverneur de la région du Littoral.

« Le « Mercy Ships » qui accoste à Douala, c’est, pour ainsi dire, un rêve qui devient réalité. Ils étaient sans doute nombreux, ceux de nos concitoyens qui croyaient à un canular. Il faut le souligner ici, le chef de l’Etat, Son Excellence M. Paul Biya, a tout mis en œuvre pour que les Camerounaises et les Camerounais les plus démunis, et ayant perdu tout espoir de guérir de telle ou telle maladie, soient pris en charge et soulagés. Notre région exprime sa déférente gratitude à l’endroit du président de la République, père compatissant de la Nation, pour avoir choisi Douala, ville cosmopolite et carrefour du vivre-ensemble, pour cette opération d’envergure ».

New Programme to Boost Youth Engagement in Agric

By Kelly Rwamapera

The Ministry of Agriculture has designed an internship programme, which will see unemployed agronomy graduates work in agriculture cooperatives in their respective home areas for a period of twelve months, to gain more skills.

The State Minister for Agriculture, Fulgence Nsengiyumva, said a pilot programme has been successful.

The pilot phase was conducted in Irish potatoes plant-tissue culture labs run by Rwanda Agriculture Board (RAB).

“After engaging the unemployed agronomists in Irish potatoes plant-tissue labs, productivity increased from 400 tonnes to 2,000 tonnes,” Nsengiyumva said at the launch of the internship programme in Nyagatare District in Eastern Province on Wednesday.

Nsegiyumva pointed out that, so far, 331 students had been deployed to help rice growers’ cooperatives while the ministry awaited others to register for horticulture, animal husbandry and other fields.

The ministry hopes the internees will help farmers produce at least 10 tonnes of rice per hectare up from 7-8 tonnes currently.

For students to be considered for internship they have to register online through Capacity Building and Employment Services Board (CBESB), a capacity building institution.

According to Antonia Mutoro, the Director General of CBESB, they are certain the country will have knowledge-equipped agronomists as a result of the internship programme.

“A few years ago, the youth had a mindset that agriculture is for middle-aged, uneducated people, agriculture needs young and educated people to practice farming professionally,” Mutoro said.

She called upon the internees to work hard to prove their worth at their places they are assigned so they can earn from their input.

Emmanuel Twahirwa, an internee who graduated at University of Rwanda Busogo campus in 2016, said he expected to acquire enough field practice to make him learn about more complex facts about rice growing.

“I graduated last year but I haven’t got a job yet nor enough practical exposure. I hope I’ll be retained here or leave with the knowledge to do my own business,” said Twahirwa.

The two-week event is in its 20th edition, with organisers promising a better and bigger fair to celebrate the two-decade milestone.

More than 500 exhibitors from about 20 countries will show case their products at the event which begins Tuesday next week.

According to the Minister for Trade and Industry, Francois Kanimba, Expo 2017 is also an opportunity for businesses to learn from each other as well as establish partnerships.

“The expo is also a very good way of giving foreign investors information about potential investment opportunities in Rwanda,” Kanimba said.

He was speaking during a breakfast media briefing.

The trade fair, that takes place at the Gikondo Expo Grounds in Kigali, is organised by the Private Sector Federation (PSF).

The exhibitors will feature products in various sectors including ICT, manufacturing, agriculture, construction, finance, and banking as well as home appliances and furniture.

PSF will facilitate Business-to-Business meetings between local investors to foreign counterparts for potential partnerships.

According to PSF Chairman Benjamin Gasamagera, a consortium of Indian ICT investors will attend the event with the aim of seeking local partners in several sectors.

Also set to be highlighted will be a unique affordable housing project introduced by Skat Consulting Rwanda, a Kigali-based Swiss firm supporting the Rwandan construction industry.

Among the countries that will be represented are; United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Canada, Iran, Pakistani, Turkey, Singapore, Malaysia, Nigeria, Ghana, USA, India and the East African Community (EAC) member states.

Stephen Ruzibiza, the PSF chief executive, noted that the expo is an opportunity for exhibitors to get new business ideas and learn new innovations.

Rwanda wants to use the expo to market its locally made products and build confidence among consumers about local brands.

More than 300,000 people are expected to attend the Trade Fair.

Tanzania: Funfairs As Lucky Vincent Accident Survivors Jet in Today

By Deus Ngowi

Arusha — THREE Standard VII survivors of Lucky Vincent Primary School bus accident return home today from the US as their fate in the national examinations hangs in balance.

The Rhotia Hill accident in Karatu district last May claimed 35 lives. Speaking on behalf of doctors and teachers, Singida North Member of Parliament Lazaro Nyalandu who coordinated the mission to the United States said it was decided the exam issue be sorted out after the trio had arrived in the country.

A former Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Mr Nyarandu said the students — Doreen Mshana, Saida Ismail and Wilson Tarimo, who had been undergoing rehabilitation at Mercy Hospital will be looked at on several factors, one being their psychological status, before deciding on their exams.

He said while in the US, the students received tuitions and were issued with several books from Tanzania but said it was important to note that they spent a lot of time in physiotherapies. “As you know, they were in the US for physical therapy but also had time to get tuition and had enough books at their disposal.

Stakeholders, including their doctors and teachers discussed the issue of national exams and if they will be ready for it. But, we decided against making any conclusion pending a psychological assessment at home and after visiting their school for the first time since the tragedy,” said Mr Nyalandu.

The students are expected at the Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA) at 0900hrs today. The team managed to secure the same DC 8 plane from Samaritan Purse, an organisation run by the family of a Southern Baptist minister, Billy Graham.

Upon arrival, there will be festivities and the children, accompanied by their doctors and parents, will head to Stem Village, a half an hour drive from KIA where they will stay for at least 24 hours.

Mr Nyalandu said the survivors had over 30 fractures, hinting that Doreen who endured great pains on her backbone had to be taken for extra medication and exercise at Roland Madonna House in Sioux City LA.

The victim was offered free medical treatment at the Centre where a patient pays at least 50,000 US dollars (over 100m/- upon registration. He said there would be several specialists in Tanzania from the US, with some having jetted in the country already.

There will also be two rescuers — Jenifer and Calvin. Along with Dr Steve Meyer, who led the surgeries, the foreign doctors were on their way from Ngorongoro and became the first to arrive at the accident scene.
