Fashion Designers And Models Celebrate 20th International Festival Of African Fashion

Artists from all over Africa gathered together last week in Dakhla, Morocco to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the International Festival of African Fashion (FIMA), a noted biennial fashion show in Africa.

The four-day landmark event on the continent’s artistic life is considered a platform for young and aspiring designers and models. Thirty-five designers from different African countries showcased their creative ideas in front of a huge audience.

Hadya Sinno, a stylist from Lebanon, said she was very impressed by the event.

The fashion show was divided into three categories, fashion designers, accessories designers, and models.  Prizes were handed out for the best in each category. For participants, it was more than just a competition; it was also a display of talent.

Since 1998, FIMA has been a unique platform for culture exchanges in Africa as a catalyst for development, peace, and rapprochement.

Cameroon Separatists Launch Crypto-currency

Separatists in Cameroon’s English-speaking regions have launched their own crypto-currency called “Ambacoin.”

They want to create a breakaway state called Ambazonia, and this currency is the latest symbol of nationhood that rebels have attempted to adopt, along with their blue-and-white flag and anthem.

The currency said to be conceived and built by a group of anonymous anglophone separatist scholars, technocrats and developers, is currently on pre-sale ahead of the “main initial coin offering” scheduled for next week.

Cameroon’s official currency is the Central African Franc (CFA), which is linked to France’s national treasury. Some Cameroonians have called for the cfa to be scrapped because it is considered a “colonial currency.”

Gunmen Kill Tuareg Civilians In Mali

Gunmen on motorbikes are said to have killed more than 40 Tuareg civilians this week in north Mali, where clashes over land and scarce water are concerns.

The violence compounds an already dire security situation in the desert region used by jihadist groups to launch attacks in the country and across West Africa.

The identities of the assailants were unknown, but disputes between the nomadic Tuareg and herder Fulani ethnic groups have killed hundreds and displaced thousands this year.

Mayor of Menaka town, Nanout Kotia, says armed men shot indiscriminately at the Tinabaw population, and that security forces had been sent to the area. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

EU Rejects Bid To Unfreeze Mubarak's Assets

Egypt’s former president, Hosni Mubarak’s bid for EU to unfreeze his assets in Europe was rejected on Wednesday.  The freeze was placed on his assets after his ouster in the 2011 revolution.

European union member countries imposed the sanctions in March 2011 based on lawsuits filed against Mubarak and his family in Egypt for alleged embezzlement of state funds.

After those countries – grouped in the European council – renewed the sanctions in 2017 and 2018, Mubarak asked the EU’s general court to annul them.

After Mubarak’s ouster, Islamist president Mohamed Morsi took power in 2012 before the military toppled him in 2013 following mass protests against Morsi’s rule.

Former military chief Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi became president later that year.
