In Cameroon, it is almost a rule. To do establish a national identity card or passport must bribe. To follow a case in one jurisdiction (generally public) must be "tchoko". And even if you repossess what rightfully yours, it must "be somebody". The situation is such that for many years, Cameroon is ranked by Transparency International as one of the most corrupt in the world. Within society, the brains appear to have been formatted by this "reality Cameroon." So much so that it is sometimes the users themselves who make the suggestion of the pot of wine, quietly waiting for the officials a "gratuity" for services rendered.

A young Cameroonian man has set up software to participate in the fight against this scourge in the country. Hervé Djia designed and developed the "NoBakChic" hear "no pot of wine." According to his explanation, this is an application that aims to make accessible to the general public administrative procedures. The principle is simple. "With a mobile phone or computer, you will be able to consult the records of procedures you want to avoid you having to do," says this young computer engineer for 24 years. The cards contain information to consult as the name of the procedure, the cost, the steps, the estimated processing time, places where to go, that the attached documents, and even useful contacts. Moreover, the NoBakChic is interactive. Each card provides for the possibility a user to report an incident. "If he had to pay a bribe, if the process has taken longer than expected or if the case was mishandled, .. . In one click, it can be reported and thus warn other users of the application, "says Hervé Djia.


Opacity of administrative procedures

The idea of ​​software that helps fight against corruption in state services comes from the observation that the opacity of procedures in government and parastatals. "It was therefore necessary to open them so that everyone can know what to expect once it is in state services," he says. If for the moment the application is only in test phase, the young engineer reassures that this is because for now there is not enough plugs. That may include access to certain documents such as procedures manual published by the Ministry of Finance on the processing of payroll.

In all cases, Hervé Djia is satisfied that the NoBakChic is one more tool in the fight against corruption since he took part in the desecration of the procedures in the Cameroon administration. "There will be no need to be someone" inside "to learn how to be served in our government. In addition, the application will update these procedures to stick to reality, "he argues. This is a fight against misinformation or lack of information; realities that are often the source of the facts of scam and corruption in Cameroon. "There is no question now of getting ripped off by our ignorance," says the young man. In any case, the NoBakChic will be available on the Internet, by SMS and on different Smartphones.

Benin Makes Headway in Attempt to Reduce Deaths from Malaria

Source: The Guardian



In the markets of west Africa, malaria drugs are on sale as openly as oranges and bananas. Trader Simone Adechinan claims to know her stuff. "With these," she says, producing a beige box marked Chloroquine Phosphate, "you want to take six tablets a day for a week, then pause for a week and take paracetamol, then start again." She issues the dubious advice without seeing the patient or referring to a doctor's prescription. And she sells the box of 100 tablets – which has no manufacturer's name – for 1,000 CFA francs ($2).

Last week, police swooped on the stalls of Adechinan and dozens of other pill traders in the market serving Benin's political capital, Porto Novo. They confiscated her brightly packaged malaria medicines and antibiotics. Getting new stock from neighbouring Nigeria was easy enough, but she has now reduced the size of her display so she can quickly pack up if the police come back. "They [the police] are trying to put us out of business," she complains.

They are indeed. Last month, scientists warned in the Lancet that theuncontrolled sale of counterfeit and substandard drugs is undermining years of efforts to reduce deaths from malaria. Not only do informal traders generally not see the patient, they are untrained, their goods lie for hours in 30C temperatures, and there is no guarantee that the tablets on sale contain the active ingredients printed on the packaging.

Malaria is the leading cause of death in Benin – a small, former French colony of 9 million people, dwarfed by neighbouring Nigeria and dependent for income on cotton and pineapple production, and on spin-offs from cross-border trade. Here, attaining most of the millennium development goals is a far-off dream.

Nevertheless, the government is making headway in attempts to reduce deaths from malaria. As well as the police raids on traders, last year it declared that treatment for the mosquito-borne parasite would be free in public clinics and hospitals. Knowing that the move would create unprecedented pressure on the country's understaffed and thinly spread health facilities, the government went a step further, enlisting an army of ordinary citizens in the battle against preventable diseases like malaria.

Côte d'Ivoire, Sierra Léone, Libéria et Guinée vers l’interconnexion electrique
08 Mars 2012

Les ministres en charge du projet d'interconnexion du réseau électrique de Côte d'Ivoire, Sierra Léone, Libéria et Guinée se sont réunis à Abidjan sous la présidence d’ Adama Toungara, ministre ivoirien des Mines, du Pétrole et de l'Energie.

Pour M. Toungara, il s’agit de créer un marché régional et d'harmoniser le réseau de l'électricité, soulignant l’immense potentiel énergétique des Etats du Fleuve Mano et de la CEDEAO.

Pour Amadou Diallo, secrétaire général de l'EEEOA (Système d'Echanges d'Energie Electrique Ouest Africain), « des pas importants ont été franchis en dépit des retards accusés par des pays dans la mise en œuvre du traité ». Prévu pour être mis en service au bout de 3 ans, soit en 2015, le coût total de ce projet d’interconnexion est d'environ 430 millions de dollars comprenant la construction d'une ligne de 1700 km traversant les quatre Etats.

Is it time to abandon the CFA franc ?
21 February 2012



Amid the crisis in the eurozone and speculation about another devaluation of the CFA franc, policy makers in West and Central Africa are faced with new calls to change their relationship to France and the euro. Is it time to abandon the CFA franc?


Yes! For Africans, it is time to drop the CFA franc. It does not reflect all the economies it covers, which is the role of a currency. The zones do not have the same level of development, and the reference prices for the cost of labour are those that are applied in France! The cost of local labour is thus underpaid.This situation automatically leads to net and permanent transfers of resources towards the euro zone. The CFA franc thus facilitates the pillage of resources. What is more surprising is the abandonment by African leaders of sovereignty on monetary questions. All is left to the French treasury, which keeps the reserves of the countries of the CFA zone in its coffers. However, to build an autonomous monetary zone, as African countries want to do, supposes that trade between the countries concerned accounts for at least 50 per cent [of their trade]. Unfortunately, we are far from that level.


Cherif Samif Sy (Senegal), Secretary general, Association Sénégalaise des Economistes.




No! The question is not whether to drop the CFA franc, but how to make the CFA franc exchange regime more compatible with the regional and international macroeconomic fundamentals of the CFA zone. At the same time I think that in keeping the current parity [with the euro], it is possible for us to introduce national currencies that are complementary and non-competitive with the CFA franc in order to energise our respective national economies. These currencies could permit access to credit, and an appropriate parity of these national currencies to the CFA would favour the monetarisation of subsistence economies and make our internal markets competitive.


Abdourahmane Sarr (Senegal), Founder of Centre d'Etudes pour le Financement du Développement Local(CEFDL)




Not yet! A brutal devaluation, like the one of 1994, will be unable to resolve the problems of the attachment of the CFA franc to the euro. One ought to ask the more global question of the pertinence of the exchange regime and the cost of managing an extroverted currency for the populations of the Union Economique et Monétaire Ouest-Africain (UEMOA) region. From a strictly economic point of view, it seems more reasonable to envisage a flexible exchange system based on a calculated index from a basket of currencies. The system would have the advantage of assuring the Banque Centrale des Etats de l'Afrique de l'Ouest of a progressive apprenticeship in monetary management and send, through a less rigid exchange rate, regular signals of the state of their economies. The challenge is to make millions of small producers competitive and self-sufficient.


Kako Nubukpo (Togo), Head of economic analysis and research, UEMOA.

Ecobank bancarise 50 000 étudiants sénégalais

Quote:
(Agence Ecofin) - « L’étudiant, pour percevoir sa bourse n’a plus besoin de se réveiller à 3 heures pour faire la queue, ni faire des combines », annonce le directeur national des Bourses, le Professeur Joseph Sarr.

50 000 étudiants des universités publics, sur un total de 65 000, perçoivent désormais leurs bourses mensuelles aux guichets automatiques d’Ecobank Sénégal. Cette mesure à fait l’objet d’une convention entre l’Etat du Sénégal et Ecobank.

« Les opérations de bancarisation se déroulent bien. Les étudiants des établissements publics d’enseignement supérieur sont essentiellement payés par la banque. Nous avons 50 000 étudiants qui sont payés aux guichets automatiques de l’Ecobank » précise, le Professeur Joseph Sarr.

Le Pr Sarr souligne aussi « La bancarisation ne visait pas exclusivement le retard de paiement, mais aussi l’assainissement du système de paiement. Celui-ci est beaucoup plus sain…. L’étudiant, pour percevoir sa bourse n’a plus besoin de se réveiller à 3 heures pour faire la queue, ni faire des combines. »

Cameroun : 6500 milliards FCFA pour un «complexe industrialo-portuaire»

Quote:
(Agence Ecofin) - Le schéma directeur d’aménagement global a été officiellement présenté le 14 mars dernier à Yaoundé par le président du comité de pilotage et de suivi du complexe.

Le changement de dénomination du projet de construction du port en eau profonde de Kribi en «complexe industrialo-portuaire» précise les intentions du gouvernement.

Au-delà du changement de nom, c’est toute une ville qui doit naître autour du port de Kribi et de nombreuses dessertes routières et ferroviaires à construire. Aussi, de lourds investissements à hauteur de 6500 milliards F CFA sont-ils attendus avec un impact énorme. Ce montant a été révélé ce mercredi à Yaoundé par Louis Paul Motaze, président du comité de pilotage et de suivi de la réalisation dudit complexe, par ailleurs secrétaire général des services du Premier ministre, lors dans sa présentation du plan général des aménagements portuaires, urbains et infrastructurels de ce gigantesque projet mené par l’entreprise Royal Haskoning.

Réalisés sur une superficie d’environ 26000 ha, apprend-on, les aménagements identifiés par le schéma directeur intègrent un port général avec un terminal à conteneur, un terminal polyvalent, un terminal aluminium, d’hydrocarbures et céréalier. Deux autres terminaux sont prévus, notamment méthanier et minéralier. Il est aussi prévu le port de plaisance, de pêche industrielle, une base navale, des zones d’urbanisation et des sites touristiques. Tous les contours du développement de la ville de Kribi ont été cernés dans une projection à l’horizon 2040.

Gabon : une raffinerie de 50000 bj à Port-Gentil dans 2 ans


Quote:
(Agence Ecofin) - Ali Bongo Ondimba est actuellement en Corée du Sud où il œuvre pour un développement des relations bilatérales entre les deux pays. L’enjeu est de taille puisque en janvier dernier, une lettre d’intention a été signée avec la compagnie SK Energy pour la création d’une raffinerie dans la Zone Franche de l’Ile Mandji, d’une capacité de 50000 barils jour.

L’investissement total représente 1 milliard de dollars. Il sera réparti entre le Gabon et la compagnie SK Energy, accompagnée par l’Agence coréenne de coopération internationale.

SK Energy fait partie de SK Group, 3eme plus important conglomérat de Corée du Sud, composé de 92 filiales dont la marque Samsung bien connue en Afrique.

Cette nouvelle raffinerie remplacera la vétuste Sogara dont la capacité dépasse à peine les 20000 barils jours.

La Zone Franche de l’Ile Mandji (Port-Gentil) devrait connaître un essor important ces prochaines années : la firme Olam, de Singapour, et le groupe indien Tata Chemicals ont déjà signé pour la construction d’une usine de production d’engrais représentant un investissement de 1,5 milliards de dollars.

Bénin: vers une solution biométrique à l’absentéisme des fonctionnaires

Quote:
(Agence Ecofin) - Au Bénin, l’absentéisme et les retards font des ravages dans l’administration et coûtent à l’Etat, selon une étude commanditée par le PNUD (Programme des nations unies pour le développement), quelque 70 milliards de francs CFA par an. C’était suffisant pour que le gouvernement décide, à travers le ministère de la Réforme administrative et institutionnelle, de trouver une solution au problème. Elle sera biométrique.

Le Ministère est en train de conduire une expérience par laquelle il est maintenant possible de connaître l’heure à laquelle chacun de ses agents arrive au bureau et en ressort. Le système permet une collecte immédiate des pointages (entrée et sortie) et conserve un historique des cinq mille dernières transactions. Le résultat, c’est, entre autres, une « surveillance » en temps réel de chaque employé, une gestion optimale des tranches horaires et une meilleure traçabilité des événements.

Les autorités béninoises espèrent avoir trouvé, avec cette méthode biométrique de gestion du temps de travail des fonctionnaires, une solution moderne pour lutter contre les retards et l’absentéisme au travail, en vérifiant la présence effective des travailleurs à leurs postes.

Pour l’heure, cette solution est en phase expérimentale. Si, au bout de six mois, les résultats sont jugés définitivement satisfaisants, ils seront étendus à l’ensemble des services administratifs, avec pour objectif de réduire de façon drastique, sinon d’éradiquer, les retards et les absences. L’atteinte d’un tel objectif pourrait faire économiser à l’Etat béninois les 70 milliards que lui coûte actuellement ce fléau.

Crucial iron-ore pact paves way for development of mining infrastructure in Cameroon, Congo-Brazzaville
8th June 2012

A recent agreement between iron-ore producer Sun- dance Resources and the government of Cameroon regarding key terms underpinning the Mbalam iron-ore project convention will also serve to promote extensive development of rail and port infrastructure in Cameroon and may thus encourage investment into the region.

The convention aims to describe the fiscal, legal and technical conditions under which the mining licence for the project is issued, as well as the conditions surrounding the development of supporting rail and port infrastructure.

Key principles that have been agreed upon include the government of Cameroon holding a 10% free-carried equity in the project’s assets, the issuance of a 25-year mining permit, and owner- ship of any rail and port infrastructure assets to be transferred to government after the 25-year period.

The Mbalam project is based on a group of large-scale iron-ore deposits spanning the border between the Republic of Cameroon and the neighbouring Republic of Congo in central West Africa which, as one of the largest investments ever made into the country, has the potential to be the foundation of the regional iron-ore industry and to act as a catalyst for other developments in the highly prospective iron-ore province.

Further, the first stage of the integrated mine, rail and port operation is expected to produce 35-million tons a year of direct-shipping-ore-quality hematite for ten years, as well as oversee the construction of a heavy-haul railway and a dedicated deep-water port at Lolabé, near Kribi, on the Cameroon coast.

The second stage will develop Sundance’s itabirite deposits while maintaining the 35-million-tons-a-year production for a further 15 years.

Meanwhile, the definitive feasibility study for the Mbalam project was completed in April last year, and will provide the budgetary input in the move towards a final investment decision, pending the securing of project financing and government approvals in Cameroon and the Republic of Congo.

Earlier this year, South Africa- based consultancy SRK Consult-ing was appointed technical adviser to the Cameroon government on the development of its minerals and mining industry, which it believes will be a ‘country changer’.

SRK chairperson Roger Dixon adds that the significance of the most recent accord between the Cameroon government and the private sector cannot be over- emphasised.

“The exciting thing about this commission is that it could get the ball rolling for the development of mining and infrastructure for the West African region as a whole, with countries like Gabon, the Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic involved,” he says.

Dixon points out that the geology of the region, which is similar to that of Liberia and Guinea, where iron-ore has been mined historically, and to that of neighbouring Congo and Gabon, offers areas of high-quality iron-ore from hematite and itabirite deposits.

“Cameroon has relatively untapped mineral resources, which are of a high quality, and the government is eager to attract investment into what is a relatively poor country,” he remarks.

Sundance chairperson George Jones adds that the cooperative relationship that has been established between the company and the government of Cameroon has resulted in the progress towards a final convention agreement.

“We are close to being able to start a project that will have a far-reaching effect on the development of the Central African iron-ore industry,”
he says.

Jones adds that he is confident that the remaining issues can be resolved on a mutually beneficial basis, with the approved mining convention available to the company by the end of August.

Sundance Resources is also engaging with the government of the Republic of Congo in the establishment of a similar convention that will provide the framework regulation for the Congolese sites of the Mbalam project.
