Moroccan university professor and writer Bachir Edkhil has affirmed that the option of a referendum in the Sahara has become obsolete and incompatible with the reality of the region. Speaking at a conference held lately at Anáhuac University in Mexico City under the theme: “Sahara: Spanish census & colonial goals”, Mr. Edkhil said Algeria and the Polisario have to admit this fact in order to advance the UN-led settlement process of the Sahara issue. This proves their inability to define the electorates and therefore the impossibility of holding a referendum, underlined Mr. Edkhil in his presentation, which gave a historical background of the Sahara issue and underlined the strong and longstanding bonds existing between the Sahrawi inhabitants and Morocco’s Monarchs. The conference was held within the frame of a seminar organized by Think-thank “NijMaroc” on the Middle East and the Maghreb. In Mexico City, Mr. Edkhil took part in a radio program titled “Dialogues with the World”, during which he spoke of his passion for poetry and in particular of his book “Dune Nue”.

Hot-blooded and almost impatient with a boiling urge to test our immature intellectual philosophies, courtesy of the many great minds tutoring us at the University of Dar es Salaam. Parallel to this scenario was the rising trend of activism in Dar es Salaam city itself. Dar es Salaam was then fast becoming a hotbed, if not already the hotbed of revolutionaries from almost all over the world, pursuing their goals and struggles. I am mentioning all this to give you a representative picture of the progressive boiling pot that was Dar es Salaam in 60s and 70s. We, therefore, planned to organise a rally to the State House in Dar es Salaam to vent off our frustration to Mwalimu Nyerere and urge him to convince Kaunda of his folly.

Yutaka Nagare says Japan can expect face a hand-to-hand battle with South Africa on Sunday but believes the speed and energy of the Brave Blossoms might just be enough to overcome the Springboks’ brute power.

Japan scrum-half Nagare knows his team do not match up to their opponents when it comes to the scales. Handre Pollard insists Japan’s shock win over South Africa at the 2015 Rugby World Cup will have no bearing on their quarter-final clash in Japan (Gareth Fuller/PA Images).

The International Organization for Migration has said that a high number of women and girls from Ivory Coast are being trafficked to Northern Africa and Europe. In a note to mark European Anti-Trafficking Day the IOM said there was an emerging trend of a rise in the number of women and girls crossing the Mediterranean. It said some of the women and girls being trafficked often end up being forced into slavery or prostitution. Smugglers then take advantage of these women “exploiting them upon their arrival to Italy, or other countries of the European Union”. In 2015, women and girls trafficked to Europe through north Africa made up just eight percent of the total number of Ivorians who landed at the shores of Italy.
