  • Feature: How Boko Haram is beating US efforts to choke its financing

    Two years later, Shekau's skepticism appears well founded: his Islamic militant group is now the biggest security threat to Africa's top oil producer, is richer than ever, more violent and its abductions of women and children continue with impunity. As the United States, Nigeria and others struggle to track and choke off its funding, Reuters interviews with more than a dozen current and former US officials who closely follow Boko Haram provide the most complete picture to date of how the group finances its activities. "Our suspicions are that they are surviving on very lucrative criminal activities that involve kidnappings," U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Linda Thomas-Greenfield said in an interview. Until now, US officials have declined to discuss Boko Haram's financing in such detail.

  • Why did Zuma intervene at Eskom?: Zille

    The answer perhaps lay in the fact that the suspensions "followed shortly after the Eskom executive's attempts to appoint an audit committee to oversee procurement processes for major contracts". Zille said industry insiders believed this move "may have upset political interests benefiting from lucrative diesel and coal supply deals". A fortnight ago, Eskom suspended four of its top executives, with chairman Zola Tsotsi announcing at the time that the parastatal's poor performance would be investigated. Business Day reported on Thursday that Zuma was directly involved in advocating the controversial inquiry into Eskom, initiated by Tsotsi two weeks ago.
