Ghana has once again shown maturity at the polls by peacefully voting out the incumbent President. Ghana’s opposition leader, Nana Akufo-Addo was declared the winner of presidential elections late Friday, securing the country’s highest office on his third attempt and helping to cement the West African nation’s reputation as a model for democracy on the continent.

The 72-year old Oxford-educated lawyer and leader of the New Patriotic Party, accepted a concession from President John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress. Shortly afterward, Ghana’s Electoral Commissioner, Charlotte Osei, formally declared Mr. Akufo-Addo had won 53.8% of the vote to Mr. Mahama’s 44.4%.

“I make this solemn pledge to you tonight: I will not let you down. I will do all in my power to live up to your hopes and expectations,” Akufo-Addo told supporters in front of his residence.

Tanzania Speaker of Parliament Job Ndugai banned some women Members of Parliament (MPs) from stepping into parliament.  He said on September 10th that women with false eyelashes and false fingernails will not be allowed to enter the legislative house.

“With the powers vested in me by the Constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania, I now ban all MPs with false eyelashes and false fingernails from stepping into Parliament,” he said.

He said he was also consulting with experts before deciding on whether or not to ban those MPs who make use of make-ups excessively from entering the august House.

Mr Ndugai announced the ban shortly after the Deputy Minister for Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children, Dr Faustine Ndugulile, told the House that women with false eyelashes and false fingernails face several health complications that cost the country dearly.

Tallest Tower in East and Central Africa Opens for Business

Published

on


Britam Tower, a 31-storey office complex in Upper Hill, Nairobi, was officially opened to the public on Friday, overtaking the nearby UAP Old Mutual Tower as Kenya’s tallest skyscraper.

The Sh7 billion tower, which sits on 1.5 acres on Hospital Road, comprises two separate buildings: a 32-storey office tower and a 15-storey parking silo with an interlinking bridge at the top floor which offers alternative means of evacuation during emergencies.

The building has a total lettable space of 350,000 square feet with 1,000 parking bays and is ready for occupation by diplomatic missions, multinationals, and financial institutions.

Britam Tower, whose construction started in early 2013 and ended in September 2017, boasts a prismic shape and at its widest it looks like a black pyramid with the top corner missing and from other views it is a more slender black prism.

The unusual design is achieved by having a footprint with four corners and then a roof with only two. The corners are crossed diagonally on the building to the upper levels as it tapers.

At 195 metres, Britam Tower is now the tallest building in East and Central Africa – and the third tallest in Sub-Saharan Africa.

“We have eight high-speed lifts to travel from the ground floor to the top floor in less than 30 seconds. These are the fastest in any building in Africa,” Britam Group managing director Benson Wairegi told journalists who toured the building on Friday.

Mr Wairegi added that the building will target diplomatic missions, multinationals, and financial institutions among other high-profile tenants.

“We are really looking for institutional tenants as opposed to individual tenants,” he said.
