While violence seems to be decreasing in Central African Republic, 28000 people are at risk of starvation in South Sudan.

Problems with infrastructures (electricity, water shortages, flooded roads,…) cost Tanzanian firms an estimated 668 million US dollars.

Sudan’s former president is due in court on August 17 on corruption charges, the salary of South Sudanese teachers places them below the poverty line, power outages cost Zimbabwe nearly 200 million dollars a week. The depletion of food stocks in East Africa will drive up inflation.

So, as usual, while some news are good, some are not so good, and some truly terrible and raise serious concerns as to where the continent is heading to.
