Africa Weekly 17/1/2020 | AFP

This week on Africa Weekly, we head to Kenya, one of the world’s leading producers of black tea. But this prized export is not fetching the prices it once did, forcing suppliers to innovate with new products and strategies. And then we head to Senegal, where a forest of the country’s iconic baobab trees is being put at risk by limestone quarrying, as the country forges ahead with the President’s ’emerging Senegal’ plan. We also take a look at the stories from the continent that made the headlines this week.

Taken from the Ram Annual 2020

A yearly tradition, the Ram Records annual is set to drop at the end of another massive year for the imprint. For nearly three decades the label has stood ahead of the game and this has been marked by an incredible back catalogue of music. The 2020 annual is just another example of this fact and it features a host of exclusives, from both signed artists and frequent Ram guests, who explore the sounds which have marked the last twelve months of its journey. With stand-out singles from the likes of Culture Shock, Skantia and more of the Ram Records roster, there’s also a plethora of brand-new music about to drop with the full package.

Russian project Razlom, comprising of producers Nouwa & Encode, alongside Task Horizon, Akov, Fascad and Aperio present a collection of new talent which debuts on the imprint for their forthcoming compilation LP. Then Need for Mirrors offers a rework of his esteemed track ‘Arp Tune’ in the form of a VIP, whilst Smooth returns to Ram Records once again with his delivery ‘My Life’. And that’s just the beginning; the album is jam packed full of exclusives, one of their biggest collections to date. It also signifies just how big 2020 is slated to be for the label, adding to an already decorated history.

In Nairobi, recycling poo is cleaning up the slums | AFP

In Kenya, like many emerging economies with fast-growing cities, public spending on sanitation lags far behind need. More than 8 million people live in slums, and 70% of them do not have access to toilets. Various companies are working on creating sustainable and cost-effective solutions to this problem.

Africa Weekly – a round up of news and features | AFP

This week on Africa Weekly we head to Togo, where each year the sea erodes as much as 10 metres of coastline, distorting Togo’s landscape and driving out fishing communities. Then we head to the Lamu Archipelago in northeastern Kenya, where residents fear a coal-fired power plant project will threaten the delicate ecosystem and tourism it attracts.

Scientists a step closer to saving northern white rhino from extinction | AFP

Veterinarians have successfully harvested eggs from the last two surviving northern white rhinos, taking them one step closer to bringing the species back from the brink of extinction. Science is the only hope for the northern white rhino — one of two subspecies of white rhino — after the death of the last male, named Sudan, last year at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya where the groundbreaking procedure was carried out Thursday.

Gentle giraffes threatened with ‘silent extinction’ | AFP

In Kenya, as across Africa, populations of the world’s tallest mammals are quietly, yet sharply, in decline. Giraffe numbers across the continent fell 40 percent between 1985 and 2015, to just under 100,000 animals, according to the best figures available to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). But unlike the clarion calls sounded over the catastrophic collapse of elephant, lion and rhino populations, less attention was paid to the giraffe’s private crisis.
