About This Week

Leaders of Africa’s This Week is a podcast that brings you conversations about Africa in the news from pop culture to politics, from the comical to the serious and all corners of Africa.


On This Week, we discuss the continuing Twitter ban in Nigeria and its impact on business in the country. Many business owners have claimed that their business is losing revenue on a daily basis during the Twitter ban. But, does the Twitter ban reveal the Nigerian government’s objective to regulate behavior and commerce on social media platforms? We also reflect on the legacy of Kenneth Kaunda, the former president of Zambia, who passed away this week. It seems possible to have life after power and transfer power peacefully. Finally, in Botswana, there are celebrations over a very special find. One of the largest large diamonds was just found and it highlights the important role of natural resource governance.
