OBAMA'S VISIT: BUSINESS LEADER CALLS FOR RULES OF ENGANGEMENT WITH AFRICA TO CHANGE

Elumelu says Africa open for business, but not at any cost

June 28, 2013-- On the eve of his departure to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, as part of a delegation of high profile African business leaders handpicked by the White House to meet with President Obama, Tony O. Elumelu, chairman of one of the most diversified investment groups in Africa, reiterated his message for the United States and international investors to engage proactively with Africa's private sector to develop the continent. 

In a wide ranging interview (available for download at AllAfrica.com), Elumelu talked about the rules of engagement for Africa having changed and that those looking to invest on the continent should consider aligning with an economic philosophy he called Africapitalism. The concept seems to be gaining momentum on the continent and beyond - the UK Guardian newspaper yesterday ran a feature suggesting it could be the new model for Africa’s development.

"Africa's economic history has been characterised by extractive industries and rent seeking practices that have not created development in any meaningful way. Africapitalism is simply saying there is a better and more ethical way to invest in Africa for a sustainable future. I would like to see both African and international investors review their strategies for Africa. Yes, we are open for business but not at any cost. Our rules of engagement have changed,” said Elumelu.

It is anticipated Elumelu will be part of a major announcement the US government will make about the power sector. Through Transcorp, one of Heirs Holdings investee companies, the group recently invested USD300 million in Nigeria's largest power plant, located in Ughelli, Delta State during the Nigerian government's recent power privatization process.

Commenting on the motivation behind the power investment, he said, "Unlimited access to affordable power in any country is a game changer and will move the needle on the country's development exponentially."

Elumelu continued, "It's not just the fact that children will be able to do their homework, or that computers and phones can be powered in rural villages; it is also the impact that access to affordable power will have on the economic ecosystem. Prices will come down, entrepreneurs will expand and innovate, and jobs will be created as a result. This is Africapitalism at work."

Other investments aside, Elumelu has been vocal about power, which has led many to speculate that Elumelu is looking to make a significant impact in this sector, much as he did in banking during his time as the Group CEO of UBA.

“We played a transformative role in democratizing the banking sector at a time when no one was really paying much attention to Africa, Elumelu says. “We had a clear strategy, first mover advantage and an understanding of what the market needed and we are focused on doing the same for power. We are taking over an old government-run plant that desperately needs rehabilitation and doubling its output within our first two years of operations. By 2017, we will be generating 1000MW of electricity and Nigerians across the country will feel the impact of affordable and consistent power."

ILO NA TACAIDS WAENDESHA KONGAMANO LA KUJADILI MIKAKATI YA KUWAWEZESHA WANAWAKE, WASICHANA NA WAVULANA KIUCHUMI KATIKA HARAKATI ZA KUPUNGUZA HALI HATARISHI ZA MAAMBUKIZI YA UKIMWI NCHINI.

Mkurugenzi wa Shirika la Kazi Kanda ya Afrika Mashariki nchini Tanzania (ILO) Bw. Alexio Musindo amesema kupitia msaada kutoka Serikali ya Sweden wa kifedha ILO iliweza kuwahusisha wasichana na wavulana katika makundi mbalimbali wenye vipato vidogo kupata uelewa wa Afya ya Uzazi kupitia Makongamano, Semina na Mafunzo mbalimbali yaliyoendeshwa na shirika hilo la kazi Duniani.
Ameongeza kuwa “tuliwasaidia kuwaunganisha na vikundi vya kuweka na kukopa ili waweze kupata mitaji midogo midogo ya kufungua biashara ndogo ndogo katika harakati za kuwafanya wajitegemee na kuepekana na vishawishi vya Ngono isiyokuwa Salama.
Bw. Musindo amesisitiza Umuhimu wa TACAIDS kuandaa makongamano kama haya ili kuwawezesha wasichana na wavulana wadogo kupata ufahamu uelewa na mafunzo ya uzazi wa Afya na jinsi ya kuelewa mabadiliko yao ya kimaumbile.
“Ni matumaini yangu mwingiliano huu wa Utamaduni wa kupambana na Ukimwi, Kinga na Uwezeshwaji wa Kiuchumi umefanyika vizuri, hasa katika kuyalenga makundi yaliyo katika mazingira magumu itasaidia kuongeza kasi ya kupunguza maambukizi mapya kama ilivyoripotiwa na ripoti ya UNAIDS mwaka 2012 Duniani kwamba maambukizi mapya yamepungua kwa Asilimia 20”. Amesema.

Mgeni rasmi Katibu Mkuu wa Wizara ya Jamii, Jinsia na Watoto Bi. Kijakazi Mtengwa akizungumza kwa niaba ya Waziri wa Wizara hiyo amesema mikakati ya kuwawezesha Wanawake Kiuchumi inaweza kupunguza hatari ya kupata maambukizi ya Virusi vya Ukimwi kwa Wanawake, Wasichana na Wavulana wadogo.
Amesema Jamii lazima itambue kuwa juhudi zaidi zinahitajika ili nchini yetu iweze kufikia malengo ya 0.3 yaani Tanzania ambayo haina maambukizi mapya ya VVU, Ukimwi usiwe sababu ya vifo, vile vile pasipo unyanyapaa wala ukatili kwa mtu yeyote anayeishi na Virusi vya Ukimwi.
IMG_2702
Mwenyekiti wa Tume ya Kudhibiti Ukimwi (TACAIDS) Dr. Fatma Mrisho akizungumza na washiriki amesema Takwimu zinazonyesha Wanawake wako katika hali ya hatari ya kuambukizwa zaidi kuliko wanaume ambapo mpaka sasa ni Asilimia Sita ya Wanawake nchini huambukizwa wakati wanaume ni Asilimia 3 nchini nzima.
Dr. Mrisho alisisitiza umuhimu wa kumwezesha mwanamke kiuchumi kama ndio moja ya suluhisho la kumfanya kutokuwa tegemezi katika jamii.
“Amesema takwimu zinazonyesha katika nchi nyingi za Kiafrika umaskini unachagia sana kuenea kwa Ukimwi maana Wanaume wengi hutumia umasikini wa Wasichana au Kinadada kuwarubini kwa fedha na kufanya nao Ngono isiyosalama”.
Dr. Fatma Mrisho amepongeza juhudi za ILO na kuwataka mashirika mengine na wadau wa mapambano dhidi ya Ukimwi kuiga juhudi zilizofanywa na ILO za kuandaa makongamano ya kiuchumi ili kumwezesha Mwanamke na wavulana wadogo kujitambua na kuelewa jukumu lao katika mapambo ya VVU na Ukimwi nchini.
