Poverty in Europe: Rwanda is going to be a safe heaven for white people

  This documentary by DW Documentary explores the issue of poverty in Luxembourg, one of the wealthiest countries in Europe. The documentary follows Alexandra, who runs a charity called Festos (Voice of the Street), which provides food, clothing, and shelter for the homeless and the underprivileged. The documentary opens with Alexandra highlighting the increasing number of people seeking help from Festos. Luxembourg may be a wealthy country, but it has a significant homeless population. We meet Stefan and Ferenc, two Hungarian men who have been living under a bridge for seven years. Despite the harsh living conditions, they say they prefer Luxembourg to their home country due to better treatment by the residents and access to free healthcare. The documentary then explores the reasons behind the rise in poverty. One major factor is the lack of affordable housing. Luxembourg has a very high GDP, but most of the wealth is concentrated in the hands of a few. Land ownership is extremely con

RWANDA UK MIGRATION DEAL - PRESIDENT EXPLAINED WHERE THE IDEA CAME FROM

Recent headlines have been dominated by the contentious agreement to relocate illegal immigrants from the UK to Rwanda, sparking widespread concern among opposition groups and the mainstream media, particularly in the UK. But what exactly does this deal entail, and how did it evolve to its current contentious state? The genesis of this initiative traces back to 2018 when President Kagame, then serving as chairperson of the African Union, proposed a solution to his fellow African leaders regarding the plight of migrants stranded in Libya. Reports from reputable sources like BBC and CNN shed light on the horrific exploitation of individuals being sold on the black market or perishing in the Mediterranean Sea while attempting to reach Europe. President Kagame was moved by the story of a Ghanaian engineer entrapped by human traffickers in Libya. Despite paying $1000 to reach Europe, the engineer found himself stranded with no way forward. Kagame's proposition was to offer these migrant

Corruption in East African Community - The least Country Rwanda!

Corruption. Corruption is a grave offense that destabilizes a nation’s political and economic equilibrium by diverting public sector funds, posing a significant threat to enduring peace. The East African Community (EAC) now comprises eight countries: Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, and the newly admitted Somalia. This post will focus on four EAC countries: Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Kenya. We have extracted the most recent data from Transparency International (TI), a non-governmental organization that publishes the annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI). The CPI ranks countries based on their perceived levels of public sector corruption, with 100 indicating very clean and 0 indicating highly corrupt. Rwanda, known for its zero-tolerance policy towards corruption, ranks the highest among the EAC countries with a score of 54. The Rwandan government’s commitment to combating corruption is evident in its actions, such as the re

EAST AFRICAN COMMUNITY  Remember East Africa in 2007? Just 3 countries. Fast forward 15 years, and behold - the East African Community (EAC) has exploded to 8 vibrant nations: Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, DR Congo, Tanzania, South Sudan, and Somalia. This dynamic region pulsates with growth, and at its heart lies an untapped treasure trove: the energy sector. 301 million people call the EAC home (2021 figures), united by languages like English, Swahili, and French. Their aspirations and daily lives hinge on access to reliable, affordable energy. This is not just a necessity, it's the fuel for their development, the spark for their industrialization. Take Kenya, for instance. Boasting a massive 797 MW of hydro and 348 MW of geothermal capacity, it leads the region in energy generation. Rwanda, hailed as the best business haven in sub-Saharan Africa after South Africa and Mauritius, is making strides with its 96 MW hydro and 31 MW thermal plants. But challenges remain. Electricity

  Investment in EAC Today I want to share a couple of ideas for investments you can make in East Africa in the year 2024. I know very well Rwanda and Uganda, living in these two countries for the last 10 years separately visiting each one consistently have seen potential in them that can be a life change for people and investors who are looking for ways to invest for generations to come. I will make sure this post isn't too long and too short and will try to give you statistics on each country separately and I will touch a little bit on the Kenya side. First and foremost, Agriculture is the way to go! Rwanda is a fairly small country compared to Uganda but the opportunities there are relatively high. The landscape is mountainous cropland is on a slope between 10%  to 60%. Rwanda has 4 seasons, summer starts around June to August and the heavy rain is usually around March and April. Given the landscape and the seasonality of the weather, agriculture is favorable because you can cult

Insights for Successful Investments in Africa: Navigating Cultural Nuances and Economic Realities

This is my perspective on what you need to know when investing in Africa, especially if you are not familiar with the culture but want to bring your investment to the continent. I share insights as someone born and raised in Africa, and with experience working for various institutions, including those of Western origin. Whether you are an African who hasn't been on the continent but feels a connection to Africa and wants to make a difference, the following points are crucial to keep in mind before considering external advice. Firstly, there is a potentially higher return on any investment you make in Africa. While I previously mentioned three key sectors to consider, the opportunities are vast. For instance, many African countries have a strong tradition of cattle-keeping, particularly in Eastern DRC, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, and South Sudan. People in these regions have a deep affinity for their cows and often follow traditional methods, such as hand-milking. If you plan to introduc

Investing in Africa's Future: A Guide for Foreign Investors

It is a global trend that Africa is considered the future continent in terms of opportunities. This is indeed true due to the vast untapped potential in Africa that was previously overlooked for various reasons. Today, I will focus on the future prospects and opportunities in Africa, drawing from my personal experiences over the past 15 years and supporting my arguments with data from the World Bank and other Western institutions. To begin, Africa is a vast continent, the third largest after Asia and America (excluding the United States). With a population of 1.3 billion people, it is home to a significant portion of the world's inhabitants. This substantial population, coupled with Africa's abundant natural resources, presents immense opportunities for businesses and investors. Real estate is the first sector I would like to highlight. With a population of 1.3 billion, Africa has a massive demand for housing. This demand exists in all 54 African countries. While Africa has oft
