  • The Mad Man Of Luanda

    If you ever thought that everyone who puts on rags is a mad man then you are wrong. In Luanda market in Vihiga county, one man has invented a unique way of earning a living. The man popularly known as Daudi Otieno puts on rags and walks bare foot to create an impression that he is living in abject poverty. By doing so , motorists and traders in the market give him money and food. But believe it or not, the man is not insane and that is just a way of surviving. We met this man on a day he is on duty and when he is off duty and found out that there are two Daudi Otieno's, a normal one and the abnormal one.

Nome respeitado entre os arquitectos portugueses.Uma geração de arquitectos portugueses deixou uma vasta obra em Angola e Moçambique. Realizada no terceiro quartel do século, esta foi uma produção de vanguarda extremamente inovadora e realizada no espaço colonial africano que importa agora salvaguardar . Pouco ou nada conhecidos, nem na sua vida nem pela sua obra, foram no entanto aplicados construtores da África do século XX, no planeamento e no urbanismo, na arquitectura e nas artes. Falamos da «geração heróica» dos arquitectos portugueses que, nascidos sobretudo nos anos 10 e 20, formados no pós-guerra nas escolas de Lisboa e Porto, foram viver e trabalhar sobretudo para Angola e Moçambique ao longo das décadas de 40, 50 e 60. Alguns já ali viviam, inseridos no meio colonial, e vieram à Metrópole de então completar os seus estudos. Foi o caso de Vasco Vieira da Costa (1911-1982), natural de Aveiro, que estudou-trabalhou com Le Corbusier e tem uma obra notável em Luanda, desde o inovador mercado Quinaxixe (de 1950-52, quando muitas obras homólogas do Portugal ibérico eram tradicionalistas e revivalistas), ao bloco da Mutamba (dois grandiosos prismas ao alto, de 68-69, hoje o Ministério do Urbanismo e Obras Públicas). Quem diria que estaria hoje a escrever o elogio fúnebre. Até sempre Kinaxixe.

Is Angola replacing Portugal with China as its main trade partner? Amid a political row over... euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe Subscribe for your daily dose of international news, curated and explained:http://eurone.ws/10ZCK4a Euronews is available in 13 other languages: http://eurone.ws/17moBCU http://www.euronews.com/1970/01/01/ Is Angola replacing Portugal with China as its main trade partner? Amid a political row over allegations of Angolan money laundering in Portugal, the Angolan president, Jose Eduardo dos Santos, has announced the end of the "strategic partnership" with Lisbon. The oil-rich country has invested billions of euros to rebuild infrastructure destroyed by decades of civil war. Many of the 200.000 Portuguese in Angola work in construction. The decision to end the strategic partnership with Portugal was a shock to its workers in Angola, according to Manuel Alves da Rocha, a leading economist at the Catholic University of Luanda: "We've heard of some Portuguese companies having already problems getting new contracts, especially in the building sector, there we have some serious problems. Moreover, there are unsolved and continuing problems over working visas for Portuguese people wanting to work in Angola. We know that in the Angolan consulate in Portugal quite a lot of visa-requests are turned down." Because of the oil boom, Luanda is now one of the world's most expensive cities to live in, with spiralling costs matched by surging salaries. There is a steady influx of experts from Portugal. Inês Norton, a town and country planner, arrived recently in Angola. Her story is typical. "There's a link between the collapse of the Portuguese labour market and the migration of Portuguese seeking work abroad," she says. "For us, Angola is an obvious option: we speak the same language, it's an accessible country full of opportunities. Here you can earn two or three times what you can in Portugal." The Chinese are also making good money. They are building entire satellite towns, like Kilamba, nearby Luanda, which can house half a million people. If Angola does replace Portugal with China, Brazil or South-Africa, Lisbon will lose a lot. "Portuguese exports to Angola represent an estimated three to four billion euros per year. And money sent by Portuguese migrants from Angola back home... estimates are around 1.3 to 1.4 billion US dollars per year. Those figures are significantly high for a country that is in the midst an economic and social crisis," says Manuel Alves da Rocha. When Angola broke from its colonial master, Portugal, in 1975, most Portuguese left. The euro crisis has brought them back. Compared to most Angolans, the new migrants can expect a life of relative privilege. Some 70 percent of the local population lives on less then two euros per day. Life expectancy is 51 years. Transparency International places Angola among the most corrupt countries worldwide. Officially, Angola's president has a zero tolerance" policy on corruption. But the country is divided between many very poor people and the very rich few. "What happens here... not a single corruption case has gone through the judicial process up to final conviction," says Alves da Rocha. "What we have seen here in Angola, in reality, is the emergence of a class of the super-rich, and the size of their fortunes is difficult to explain given the fact that the money was accumulated in a very short space of time." Judges in Portugal have recently closed several money-laundering inquiries against high-ranking Angolan dignitaries. Some in both countries hope this ruling will also end the political controversy that has proved so costly to bilateral relations.

Few Nigerians are applauding the collapse of oil prices, which has hit the economy of Africa's top crude producer hard and hammered its currency, the naira. But for the currency hawkers hanging around outside Abuja's Sheraton hotel, business has seldom been so good as wealthy Nigerians turn to the black market - sometimes changing up to $200,000 at a time - to dodge increasingly onerous FX regulations. In other African crude producers such as Angola and South Sudan, the sharp drop in oil receipts has caused the official supply of dollars to dry up, paralyzing day-to-day commerce and leaving some travellers stranded cashless at airports. In South Sudan, one of the world's poorest countries, the formal central bank rate is 2.95 pounds to the dollar, but traders say the bank refused to sell, forcing them to resort to the streets where the greenback is worth more than double its official rate. "Access to dollars is a problem for me," said Ahmed Oman, a Somalia market trader in Juba, the war-scarred and landlocked state's dusty capital city. In Nigeria, holding naira has become increasingly unpopular as it has lost its value. Basic everyday goods can still be paid for in the local currency but many items are scarce and Nigerians need U.S. dollars for imports such as drugs or fabrics sold by small-time traders, to send money to relatives abroad or to purchase western clothes that are important status symbols. Faced with a massive drop in oil revenues and declining reserves, Nigeria's central bank devalued the naira and then imposed rules restricting access to dollars to all but importing companies to curb what it termed "speculation". The consequence has been to force more people to the black market, where the currency's rate has fallen as low as 227 this week, more than 10 percent weaker than its official level. "People buying dollars is increasing," said Adam Musa, head of a group of currency traders sitting in the shade of a tree on an Abuja street where gangs of hawkers flag down passing cars to start negotiations. Since oil prices slumped over six months ago, rich Nigerians have started turning to the street market, squeezing out smaller fry with orders sometimes totaling as much as $1 million. "The rich are buying plenty," said Abubakar Shamsedin, another Abuja trader. "I can do $20,000-$50,000 myself. The smallest amounts lately are $1,000-$3,000." No dollars, no travel In Angola, Africa's second-biggest crude producer, foreign currency is supposed to be available from bureaux de change but with oil revenues dropping dramatically in the last six months most have run out. Instead, desperate Angolans have turned to the black market, where the rate has yo-yoed between 150 and 180 kwanza over the last few weeks, against an official level of around 106. In the capital Luanda, restaurants and shops will happily accept dollars or euros since they have to import nearly all their raw produce. "For three weeks now, we lost the official supply of U.S. or any other foreign currency," one teller, who did not want to be named, told Reuters as she sat in front of a blank computer screen at a bureau de change in the main airport. Passengers needing foreign currency were exasperated. "Where else can we buy it?" one female passenger asked. "We were told by government to buy foreign currency at the airport as long we show our visa and air ticket. What can I do now?" Similar problems are occurring in Nigeria, where even official bureaux de change are being denied dollars by banks and the central bank, leaving walk-in customers as their only source of hard currency. "We used to buy directly from customers and the central bank in the past but the central bank is not selling to us," said one agent in Nigeria's commercial capital, Lagos, offering rates of around 223 naira to the greenback. "It's not the 'street rate' - we are a licensed bureau de change. But it's how we buy that determines how we sell," he added. In a multi-storied plaza in Abuja that is home to the dozens of shops fronted by signs advertising "Bureau de Change," the mood is glum as licensed dealers struggle to compete with the informal market outside. "People are holding their money," said Salisu Garu, one licensed dealer who says his dollar turnover has collapsed, reducing his profits to a quarter of the 200,000 naira he used to take home every week. "You see, only one person has come in while I'm speaking to you - with $700."
