ENERGIZING AFRICA'S FUTURE, BENEFITING THE WORLD

AfDB President, Akinwumi Adesina.
African Development Bank Group (AfDB) President Akinwumi Adesina delivered an impassioned speech to high-level leaders Sunday morning about why putting all of Africa on the power grid is not only good for the continent, but also for the world.

“The private sector is frozen in time,” he said, and “the lack of energy has put the brakes on Africa’s industrialization.” That stunted internal development prevents the continent’s 54 resource-rich nations from attracting the external investment that would allow everyone to prosper.

He told the crowd that now is the time to push past the days when more than half a million people die each year simply because they have no access to clean cooking energy. He insisted that the era of factories lying dormant due to lack of electricity must come to an end.

“Africa cannot stand by with such massive energy resources and yet be known for the darkness, not the brightness, of its cities and rural areas,” Adesina said. “Africa is blessed with limitless potential for solar, wind, hydropower and geothermal energy resources. And, of course,” he added, its “abundant supply of natural gas and coal.”

CHINA'S PRESIDENT XI JINPING WILL MAKE HIS FIRST STATE VISIT TO BRITAIN NEXT MONTH

Chinese President Xi Jinping delivers a speech at a ceremony to present commemorative medals of the 70th anniversary of the Victory of Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression, to World War Two veterans at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, September 2, 2015.
BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese President Xi Jinping will make his first state visit to Britain next month, the British government said on Tuesday, 10 years after the last such visit by a Chinese president.

The news of Xi's Oct 20-23 visit comes a week after British finance minister George Osborne visited China to strengthen economic and financial ties.

Despite disagreements over human rights and the former British colony of Hong Kong, China values Britain's staunch defense of free trade and lack of obstacles to investing in Britain.

DANGOTE TO COMMISSION TANZANIA CEMENT PLANT

Aliko Dangote
Dangote Cement Plc has concluded plans to commission its new 3.0 million metric tonnes cement plant located in Mtwara District of Tanzania on October 10, 2015.

According to a statement, the company will also unveil its 25 hectares of Jetty land at Mgao village in Mtwara District the same day.

The company noted that the commissioning of the new cement plant is part of its Africa expansion strategy and will be the fourth in the series after Ethiopia, Zambia and Cameroun, adding that cement plants due for commissioning this year include that of Senegal and South Africa, while construction works are ongoing in several other African countries.

With the plant in operation, Tanzania is on its way to becoming one of African countries that are self-sufficient in cement production.

Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo Osinbajo, while speaking at the commissioning of Zambian plant, lauded Aliko Dangote on his investment in several African countries, saying the Federal Government is proud of the company.

TANZANIA CONTEMPLATES WIDENING CAPITAL MARKETS FOR FOREIGNERS

DSE Chief Executive Officer, Moremi Marwa.
Tanzania is before the year end expected to further open her capital markets to allow foreign investors outside the East African region to invest in short and long term government papers.

Currently, only local investors and their counterparts from the East African region, are allowed to participate in the Treasury bills and bonds. Commenting on the initiative, the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE) Chief Executive Officer Mr Moremi Marwa said there is expectation of increased trading activities and volume at the secondary bond market.

“It is a significant step that will attract more investments from across the globe into the government papers,” he said, noting that increased competition at the bond market will enable the government to borrow at low interest rates.

The Bank of Tanzania (BoT) said deepening the capital market would make it more responsive to rate moves by the central bank, which could start announcing a benchmark lending rate by late 2016.

Tanzania has been easing restrictions on its capital markets in line with commitments as a member of the five-nation East African Community bloc.

INVESTORS APPETITE FOR TREASURY BILLS UP

Despite the oversubscription, the liquidity squeeze in the circulation is attributed to slight fall of the total amount tendered in the treasury bills auctioned by the Bank of Tanzania (BoT) last week compared to the preceding session.

According to the NMB Bank e-market report, liquidity in the local money markets remains tight as demand for short-term funds is seen trending higher, with interest rates trading upwards 6 per cent.

Most institutions and corporations are converting hard currency for month-end local payments. Some of the key investors in the treasury bills constitute commercial banks, pension funds, insurance firms and few microfinance institutions.

This is the fourth treasury bills auction to record an outstanding performance. The BoT auction summary shows that the total amount bids declined to 162.18bn/- compared to 210.10bn/- total tendered in the session held two weeks ago.

Of the four tenors, the 364 and 182 days offers attracted total bids worth 148.42bn/- slightly lower than 197.56bn/- while the 91 and 35 days failed to breakthrough the amount offered for tendering and were undersubscribed.

TANZANIA BREWERIES DOMINATES TRADE AT DAR BOURSE

The Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE) has recorded 98 per cent decline in turnover after posting 2.10bn/- compared to 106.87bn/- of the previous session.

Despite low turnover last week, the Tanzania Breweries Limited (TBL) continued to dominate the trading activities after contributing more than 60 percent of the turnover. Similarly, the total volume of shares registered 99 per cent decrease to 1.42 million from 8.01 million that changed hands in the preceding market.

According to Zan Securities Limited Weekly Wrap-Ups, the market is likely to remain volatile due to low participation from both local and foreign investors. The price movements within local listed companies were recorded in seven counters including the Tanzania Oxygen Ltd (TOL) and Tanzania Cigarette Company that led the list of top gainers by increasing by 10/- per share or 1.33 percent and 20/- per share or 0.12 percent respectively.

Top losers during the period under review were CRDB Bank Plc by 10/- per share or 2.63 percent, Tanzania Portland Cement Company Ltd (TPCC) and Swissport Company Ltd by 40 per share or 1.16 per cent and 80/- per share or 1.05 per cent respectively.

Three out of seven cross listed companies recorded a positive price movement at the end of the week; these were; USL, KA and JHL. NMG, ACA, EABL and KCB recorded a negative price movement during the week under review.

STANBIC BANK RELAUNCHES REVAMPED MBEYA BRANCH

Stanbic Bank Tanzania has relaunched its revamped branch in Mbeya in line with its mission to offer better services to its customers. “We are pleased to relaunch a revamped branch to the people of Mbeya,” said Ken Cockerill, the CEO of Stanbic Bank Tanzania.

“This revamp is part of our broader efforts to modernize our branch network across the country coupled with offering superior services to our customers.” Stanbic Bank currently has network of 10 branches and 34 ATMs located throughout the regions.

This is in addition to the bank’s mobile and internet banking services. The branch modernization efforts go hand in hand with that of its other physical channels. The bank is currently replacing its ATMs with the latest version of touch-screen ATMs.

NATIONAL MICROFINANCE BANK GETS $35M SYNDICATED LOAN FACILITY FOR SMEs

The National Microfinance Bank has closed a six-year 35 million US dollar (about 73.5bn/-) syndicated loan facility with Netherlands Development Finance Company (FMO) to boost its lending to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and corporate borrowers.

According to a statement issued yesterday, the loan was arranged by FMO, in syndication with Proparco, a subsidiary of the Agence Francaise de Developement (AFD) which will provide 15 million US dollars and Swedfund 5 million US dollars.

“By supporting NMB Tanzania, we will contribute to providing credit to SMEs and Corporates in Tanzania, supporting economic development,” FMO’s Chief Investment Officer, Linda Broekhuizen is quoted as saying.

“NMB is a leading financial institution in Tanzania, which performs well and has a presence in most of its regions. The lenders are therefore very pleased to be part of this transaction.”

KENYA AIRWAYS GETS RELIEF AS GUINEA, SIERRA LEONE SKIES REOPEN


Kenya has lifted the ban on visitors from Ebola-struck West African nations Sierra Leone and Guinea, opening a flight path that closed 13 months ago for struggling national carrier Kenya Airways (KQ).

Kenya closed the door on visitors from the two countries and Liberia in August last year following an acute outbreak of an Ebola epidemic, cutting deep into revenues of the airline that operated 44 scheduled flights a week to 10 West African cities.

KQ, however, got some reprieve in May when Kenya opened the doors for visitors from Liberia but left both Sierra Leone and Guinea out.

DAR ES SALAAM PORT LAUNCHES NEW FERTILIZER TERMINAL TO BOOST AGRICULTURAL SECTOR

The Norwegian Investment Fund for Developing Countries (Norfund), has recently announced on its website the completion and official launch of the new Yara’s Fertilizer Terminal in the port of Dar es Salaam at a total investment of NOK 169 million.

The new terminal, officially launched by Norway’s Minister of Trade and Industry, Ms. Monica Maeland, is meant to make quality fertilizer more readily available and in smaller packages specialized by type.

By doing this, Yara expects to specially benefit small-scale farmers whom needed to buy it from traders without getting a high quality product and competitive prices.

Norfund, Norway’s main instrument to fight poverty in developing countries, partially financed the terminal with a NOK 40.1 million loan.

The remaining balance was assumed by Yara, the world’s largest producer and marketer of mineral fertilizers.

The terminal’s handling facility with a capacity to process 150,000 tons of fertilizer per year is not only meant to secure the supply of this product at cheaper prices, but also to support the Dar port with extra capacity since it is one of the main gateways in East Africa according to Norfund.

UGANDA AGREES TO REVISE MONEY LAUNDERING LAW

The Ugandan parliament in session. The government has agreed to revise the country’s law on money laundering following criticism by a global agency.
Uganda has agreed to revise its laws on illicit financial flows to allow for more collaboration with other governments and international agencies in the war against money laundering and terrorism financing.

The Anti-Money Laundering Act was passed two years ago following a directive by the East African Community to its members in the wake of growing terror threats and incidents across the region.

It however soon came in for criticism by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) — the global agency responsible for curbing money laundering and terrorism-financing crimes — for allegedly hindering information-sharing by requiring other monitors and enforcers to sign memoranda of understanding with the government.

KENYA ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD SET TO MEET FIVE HEALTH TARGETS

A mother nurses her baby. The five targets are stunting, wasting, overweight among children under five, exclusive breastfeeding of infants up to six months, and anaemia in women of reproductive age.
Kenya is the only country in the world that is on course to meet all five World Health Assembly (WHA) maternal and child nutrition health targets, according to the 2015 Global Nutrition report.

Kenya’s progress has been attributed to government commitment and investment to end malnutrition; women’s empowerment; improved food supply; greater access to improved healthcare, water and sanitation facilities; and improved performance of specific nutrition programmes across the country.

This new status reflects the results of the Kenyan Demographic and Health Survey from 2014 by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics 2015, which shows that the country’s malnutrition rates have fallen tremendously in the past five years.

IN ZIMBABWE, THINGS HAVE GONE FROM BAD TO WORSE

A Zimbabwean purchases bread with the Zimbabwe dollar equivalent to $2 in 2008. Zimbabweans were now facing a new scourge: Deflation, which economists say is worse than hyperinflation.
Since 2005, Clemence Mujuru has been supporting his family from his secondhand clothes business in downtown Harare. When business was good, he bought a piece of land to build a house in one of the capital’s suburbs.

Mujuru was admired in the neighbourhood. But not any more.

“Things are not working out the way they used to,” said Mujuru, who used the proceeds from the street sales to pay school fees for his three children. “The situation seems to be getting worse.”

Two weeks ago, he said the municipal police came around and took away all his wares.

“They said we are not allowed to sell second-hand clothes, something that I have been doing for the past 20 years.”

PAYMENTS ON COMESA PLATFORM HIT $1.76M

The platform has so far interconnected banks in eight member countries including DR Congo, Malawi, Mauritius, Rwanda, Swaziland, Uganda, and Zambia.
Payments made through a regional cross-border transfer system hit $1.76 million in the first six months of the year, indicating rising public awareness and uptake of a platform introduced to ease trade.

The Regional Payment and Settlement System (REPSS) said it handled real-time bank transfers totalling $1.69 million and €63,656.71 in the half year to June.

The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (Comesa) launched the platform in October 2012to ease regional trade by offering same-day settlement of funds within the bloc.
