President John Magufuli, however, stopped the project, and that leaves the ports in Mombasa and Lamu as the only ones in the region with ongoing expansion Subscribe to us on YouTube: http://ow.ly/Zvqj30aIsgY Follow us on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cgtnafrica/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/cgtnafrica

Walking through the Gate of No Return, one of four gates in Africa where slaves were transported across seas. Chained 600 wide at a time, they would walk the Road of No Return, pass through the gate, and board the ship to what tragedies lay ahead. It was quite a moment and I hope the video translates some sort of feeling.
Containers filled with old and often broken computers, monitors and TVs -- of famous electronic brands - arrive in Ghana from the United States, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands under the label of second-hand goods. Exporting e-waste from Europe and America is illegal but exporting unwanted and broken electrical goods under the tag of old electronics for 'reuse' allows unscrupulous traders to profit from dumping e-waste in Ghana. These obsolete electronics are often laden with toxic chemicals like lead, mercury and brominates flame retardants. In the yards, unprotected workers, many of them children, dismantle computers and TVs with little more than stones in search of metals that can be sold. The remaining plastic, cables and casing is either burnt or simply dumped on waste gro...

Slavery in Brazil began long before the first Portuguese settlement was established in 1532, as members of one tribe would enslave captured members of another. Later, colonists were heavily dependent on indigenous labor during the initial phases of settlement to maintain the subsistence economy, and natives were often captured by expeditions called bandeiras, originating in São Paulo. The importation of African slaves began midway through the 16th century, but the enslavement of indigenous peoples continued well into the 17th and 18th centuries. During the Atlantic slave trade era, Brazil imported more African slaves than any other country. An estimated 4.9 million slaves from Africa came to Brazil during the period from 1501 to 1866. Until the early 1850s, most enslaved Africans who...

In 1807 Britain outlawed slavery. In 1820 the king of the African kingdom of Ashanti inquired why the Christians did not want to trade slaves with him anymore, since they worshipped the same god as the Muslims and the Muslims were continuing the trade like before. What these records show is that the modern slave trade flourished in the early middle ages, as early as 869, especially between Muslim traders and western African kingdoms. For moralists, the most important aspect of that trade should be that Muslims were selling goods to the African kingdoms and the Af...

The Port of Los Angeles: A History is a landmark documentary series, part of an oral history project celebrating the 100th anniversary of the official founding of the Port of Los Angeles by the City of Los Angeles in 1907.

It is also a vivid self-portrait of the people and Port communities of San Pedro and Wilmington, and a timeline for more than 200 years of American economic, political, and social change. This episode tells how the harbor emerged from an isolated Spanish, then Mexican, trading stop to a booming American harbor. ©...

China's Belt and Road Initiative is widely hyped, and many African governments view it as a special shot in the arm of African economic development. The scheme links China with Europe via Kenya and Egypt, and if it is built, it will be one of the biggest infrastructure projects in human history. On the surface, it's easy to see why African governments are excited. The project will provide new infrastructure to Africa, including new ports in East Africa. Also, it will link regions to each other. Kenya's new Standard Gauge Railway won't only integrate Kenya with the rest of East Africa, it will also connect the region to a massive trade route. This opens opportunities not only to connect to China, but also to Europe. Great, right? Not so fast. This week Eric and Cobus speaks to the K...
