KELELE, the African Bloggers conference, coming soon

August 13-16th, 2009 in Nairobi, Kenya. Kelele is an annual African bloggers’ conference held in a different African city each year and run by an organising committee in that city.

Date : August 13-16th, 2009

Venue : Nairobi, Kenya

Organizer : Kelele organising committee

Kelele is the Kiswahili word for noise.

This gathering of African bloggers is organised in the tradition of historical African societies where everyone has a voice. With too many voices marginalised or simply ignored in Africa society today for a variety of reasons, the organizers believe that the internet in general and grassroots media tools such as blogs in particular represent the most powerful way in which to give Africans back their voice. They will be gathering to make a powerful, positive, inspirational noise that will be heard across the continent and beyond.

The theme of Kelele ’09 Nairobi is Beat Your Drum – we want to connect the traditional Africa method of getting your message across vast distances – the talking drums – to the 21st century and the tools we use today to get our message across, blogs and the Internet. We anticipate that this conference will continue to be called Kelele wherever it is held. For example Kelele Nairobi ’09, Kelele Accra ’10, Kelele Cairo ’11 and so on.

Tanzania's central bank sees growth rebound in 2010.

Tanzania's economic growth could rebound in 2010 to more than 6 percent if the world overcomes the economic downturn, the central bank governor said on Friday.

Tanzania, the second largest economy in the five-nation East African Community bloc, expects growth of 5-6 percent this year, down from 7.4 percent in 2008, due to the effects of the global economic slowdown.

"We are expecting 2010 to start moving up again, the global recovery should certainly push us, maybe towards 6 (percent) and above," Benno Ndulu told Reuters on the sidelines of a regional meeting of central bank chiefs.

He said the downturn had hurt demand for the country's coffee, cotton, tourism and gemstones.

Tanzania, whose relative macroeconomic stability has made it popular among foreign investors, has suspended plans to raise funds through a Eurobond, but is hoping to get support from the International Monetary Fund to boost the economy. Source reuters

RIGHT TO BE RICH

RIGHT TO BE RICH
The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain way, and those who do things in this certain way — whether on purpose or accidentally — get rich, while those who do not do things in this certain way — no matter how hard they work or how able they are — remain poor.
