Xi Jinping says China ‘will not seek to dominate’

Chinese President Xi Jinping has vowed that his country will not develop at the expense of other nations, in a speech marking 40 years since China introduced major economic reforms. However, he also said that the global super power would not be told what to do by anyone. Late leader Deng Xiaoping’s campaign of “reform and opening up” began four decades ago.

Muhammadu Buhari is seeking a second term in those elections, but his campaign has taken a hit from accusations he has soft-pedaled justice for one of the sides responsible for the clashes, the herders, many of whom come from the same Fulani ethnic group as the leader.

Letter from Africa: Why Kenyan men don’t want to share power with women

In our series of letters from African journalists, media and communications trainer Joseph Warungu reflects on gender inequality in Kenyan politics. The Kenyan parliament is a tough playground. And just like any other playground, the bigger ones tend to play rough and keep the toys to themselves. The “boys” in parliament have been doing exactly that, by refusing to share their play area and their toys – or their seats and their political power.
