China's Dream, Kenya's Dream

JinpingKenyattaBy H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta

CHINA, August 22, 2013 (Buziness Africa) - Just like the scale of its spectacular success today, the magnitude of China's challenges only three decades ago was similarly great. The strategies that enabled it achieve success offer special lessons. I have a deep appreciation of the leadership philosophy you espouse both for China and internationally. It reflects your nation's proud tradition of diligence, courage and wisdom, and underscores your stated intention to promote world peace and stability through development of individual countries. I agree that international fairness must be secured through a strategy of equality, democracy and inclusiveness at all times, through all global conditions.

In Ghana, Funerals Have Become Big Business

ACCRA, Ghana, August 22, 2013 (Bloomberg News) — Benjamin Aidoo has brought his dancing pallbearers to more than 200 funerals in Ghana, easing loved ones to their final resting places to the strains of everything from reggae to gospel music. “Customers say, ‘Papa loved dancing when he was alive, let him dance one more time,’ ” says 27-year-old Aidoo, who charges as much as 800 cedis ($387) a ceremony. “This is a new business where we dance the coffin to the grave instead of marching solemnly,” he says. Aidoo founded his business in 2010 and is now having to turn customers away.
