Over the past years, few African countries have been the focus of discussions and analyses generating a vast array of literature as much as Zimbabwe. The socioeconomic and political crises since the turn of the century have deeply transformed the country from the ideals of a vibrant freshly independent nation just two decades earlier. These transformations have necessitated the call for the restructuring of Zimbabwean society, polity, and economy. But this literature remains exclusively within the realm of academic thinking and theorising, with no concerted effort to move beyond this by explicitly drawing out the policy implications.

Understanding IFFs and Curtailing the BLEEDING - Twitter Chat

Briggs Bomba, programme coordinator at TrustAfrica had a twitter chat with #MondayTango on Monday 7th, 2015 to discuss the Illicit Financial Flows from Africa.

Since the sad news of Prof Sam Moyo’s passing on, there has been an impressive wave of testimonies from all over the world, telling an array of personal stories and sharing some deep insights about the man behind this iconic figure, his work, his personality, his intellect, his contribution and his legacy. Our partners at Pambazuka News have pulled some of these stories, testimonies and insights into one piece, according us the rare privilege of spending quality time with the wonderful person Prof Sam was.

This December 2015 report from Global Financial Integrity, “Illicit Financial Flows from Developing Countries: 2004-2013,” finds that developing and emerging economies lost US$7.8 trillion in illicit financial flows from 2004 through 2013, with illicit outflows increasing at an average rate of 6.5 percent per year—nearly twice as fast as global GDP.

The global community of development practitioners should take pride in the achievement of a consensus move from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to the SDGs. The process has not been smooth. There are still disagreements regarding the priorities, and on the naming and framing of problems. Criticisms still abound on how the goals and decisions were finally made.

The SDGs will be put in place with other regionally agreed development protocols, such as the accord that emerged from the Paris Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP) and global initiatives for food security and improved access to medicines.

Professor Sam Moyo is no more. He died on November 21 following a tragic road accident the day before in New Delhi, India. Sam was there to participate in a conference on Labor Issues in the Global South. His death robs Africa of a towering intellectual giant.
