Africa’s best universities, the grand institutions that educated a revolutionary generation of nation builders and statesmen, doctors and engineers, writers and intellectuals, are collapsing. It is partly a self-inflicted crisis of mismanagement and neglect, but it is also a result of international development policies that for decades have favored basic education over higher learning even as a population explosion propels more young people than ever toward the already strained institutions.

African models wrestle with size schism Skinny African girls may get to strut on Western catwalks, but the fat ones have to stay at home. This is the message being delivered to the 500 or so Ghanaians who have registered with the country's only international modeling agency, Exopa.

Overseas demand from China and other rapidly-growing nations for natural resources, including oil, has been a cause for growth, the bank said.
The data was issued at the bank's annual meeting, being hosted by China.
The region's economy grew by 5.5% in 2006, with South Africa, Nigeria and Algeria among the strongest nations.
Perhaps this "growth" will trickle down to Africans(???)
