Weekly update, 19 October - Zimbabwe and Malawi

Last week we covered the old Portuguese colony that gained independence in 1975. Today we’re in Zimbabwe, officially the Republic of Zimbabwe which is a landlocked country located in southeast Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers, bordered by South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, and Mozambique.

Zimbabwe is a country of roughly 16 million people speaking 16 languages, English, Shona, and Ndebele the most commonly used.

Since the 11th century, present-day Zimbabwe has been the site of several organized states and kingdoms as well as a major route for migration and trade. The British South Africa Company of Cecil Rhodes first set foot during the 1890s; it became the self-governing British colony of Southern Rhodesia in 1923.

Uganda is a Great Investment Location in Africa

Uganda is a Great Investment Location in Africa

The words of Winston Churchill published in 1908 still ring true today in the 21st Century. “For magnificence, for variety of form and color, for a profusion of brilliant life — bird, insect, reptile, beast — for vast scale — Uganda is “the Pearl of Africa.” The Kingdom of Uganda is a fairy tale.
