The longstanding conflict between the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Rwanda, and Uganda is fueled by racial tensions and mineral wealth, leading to the formation of various militias, including the March 23 Movement (M23) which emerged in 2012. Despite a truce in 2013, M23 resurged in 2021 with allegations of support from Rwanda and Uganda.

Agriculture promises to change relations between Angola and Brazil

02 Jun 2022  |  euronews
Angola is considering opening its borders to more Brazilian entrepreneurs interested in the trade sector. A Brazilian couple, who have been in Angola for over 30 years and invested in confectionery and the metallurgical industry, sees potential for this. Ana Alexandre has trained over 300 young people in confectionery in Luanda and employs 40 local staff. Economist Carlos Rosado de Carvalho notes that Brazilian investment in Angola is currently almost non-existent, with AIPEX registering only two Brazilian investments since August 2008. Angola aims to prioritize agro-industry and military security in its strategic partnership with Brazil, which was the first country to recognize Angola's independence and has signed a cooperation agreement on the development of family agriculture in irrigated areas. Carlos Alberto Franco França highlighted the opportunities that the crisis in Europe could create for the partnership between the two countries, mentioning Brazil's superior grain productivity and the potential to replicate its agricultural production conditions in Africa, starting with Angola.

Fishermen in Luanda Complain About Trawling

27 May 2022  |  euronews
Fishermen in Luanda, Angola, are expressing concerns over trawling by Chinese vessels, which they say have more resources and operate 30 miles off the coast. André Hossi, a local fisherman, notes that a small boat's average production is around 1500 euros, which is shared among the boat's owner and crew. The high cost of fish is causing difficulties for local sellers, impacting their family's livelihood. However, the onset of the cacimbo season has brought some positive news with better and more abundant fish. The recent CPLP Ministers of Maritime Affairs meeting addressed safety and hygiene concerns.

Improved security in Mozambique favors return of energy companies

25 May 2022  |  euronews
Improved security conditions in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique, due to the intervention of SADC and Rwandan military forces, are encouraging the return of multinational energy companies. This return is further motivated by Europe's search for alternatives to Russian natural gas amidst the energy crisis caused by the Russia-Ukraine war. Despite military progress, Mpho Molomo, head of SADC's mission in Mozambique, warns that it's too early to declare an end to terrorism in the region. José de Oliveira, an energy affairs researcher, believes conditions are aligning for companies to return to Cabo Delgado. However, lawyer Alexandre Chivale expresses concerns over a new anti-terrorism law potentially limiting citizens' rights and freedoms.
