ICD new report unveils encouraging Islamic finance prospects in Africa


PRESS RELEASE

New report from ICD unveils encouraging Islamic finance prospects in Africa

The new report was released during the Africa Islamic Finance Forum 2015 in Abidjan

JEDDAH, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, 19 September 2015/ -- A newly-released report “Islamic Finance in Africa: A Promising Future” by the Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector (ICD) takes an in-depth look at the tremendous growth opportunities for Islamic finance to flourish in the region. The new report was released during the Africa Islamic Finance Forum 2015 in Abidjan.

The report is being published as the global banking community comes together to define a transformative new landscape to integrate Islamic finance into the mainstream. Once of interest only to a niche market of Muslim investors, Islamic finance is now venturing beyond its traditional sphere, and is slowly gaining widespread acceptance in Africa.

The birthplace of a quarter of the global Muslim population, the report highlights that Africa features a potentially strong demand for Islamic financial services and products. While still comparatively under-developed, Islamic finance is expanding in many parts of the region, and is now present across most of North Africa and in many countries of East and West Africa, particularly those with sizeable Muslim communities.

One of the recommendations of the report is that Islamic finance can act as the catalyst in mobilising funding into Africa, thereby resulting in economic growth and sustainable development. It is estimated that the region needed USD93.0bln per year to finance large-scale infrastructure and manufacturing projects, while external funding is also needed to offset ballooning fiscal deficits. Meanwhile, 2 billion adults remain unbanked globally, and currently, sub-Saharan Africa alone accounts for as much as 17.0% of the world’s unbanked adults. In addition, there is a significant funding potential opportunity for Islamic banks in view of the increasing emergence of small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) across Africa. In light of relatively low-income levels, a large informal sector and the prevalence of small businesses in Africa, Islamic microfinance is also a growth area worth looking into.

The report also highlights notable progress in the sukuk sector, where recent developments have seen governments focusing more on creating a more enabling environment for sukuk issuances. Some countries which have issued sukuk include Gambia, Sudan, Senegal and South Africa, while Ivory Coast is lining up to issue its debut sukuk at the end of the year. Moving forward, several countries such as Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco have expressed keen interest in tapping the sukuk market for infrastructure financing and have finalized or are in the midst of finalizing their legal frameworks to promote sukuk issuances. Although the Islamic financial services industry in Africa is currently dominated by the banking and sukuk segments, growth potential remains in the asset management and takaful spheres.

In its key recommendations, the report underlines that to capture the tremendous potential, the regional industry must overcome various challenges which are broadly similar with challenges faced in other parts of the world. These include challenges on the regulatory front such as regulatory inconsistency, the shortage of qualified human capital, the lack of awareness and financial literacy by many end-users and consumers, and a conducive business landscape which will support the growth of Islamic finance.

CHADEMA kuishitaki mahakamani CCM kwa "kukopi na kupesti"


CHAMA cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (CHADEMA) kimepanga kumshitaki mgombea wa urais wa Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM), Dk. John Magufuli kwa madai ya kutumia vibaya nembo za chama hicho.

Ni baada ya Dk. Magufuli kutangaza kuwa nembo ya Movement for Change (M4C) ‘kuipora’ wakati akifanya mkutano wake wa kampeni mkoani Kigoma kwenye Uwanja wa Kawawa uliopo Ujiji.

Katika mkutano huo Dk. Magufuli alisema “hawa jamaa zangu wa Chadema wananipenda, hata ile nembo yao ya M4C ni Magufuli for Change-maana yake Magufuli kwa Mabadiliko.”

Chadema wanaratajia kufungua kesi hiyo Septemba 21 mwaka huu na kwamba, madai hayo yatakwenda sambamba na madai ya kutumia kauli mbiu ya ‘mabadiliko Lowassa’ ambayo kaibadilisha na kuwa ‘mabadiliko Magufuli’.

Akizungumza na waandishi wa habari leo jijini Dar es Salaam katika Ukumbi wa Ngome Kawe, Mwanasheria wa Chadema, John Malya amesema “CCM imekuwa ikivunja sheria za uchaguzi kila siku bila kuchukuliwa hatua yoyote na mamlaka husika, wanatumia nembo za Chadema ambazo zimesajiliwa na kujulikana.”

Hata hivyo imeelezwa, baada ya Dk. Magufuli ‘kuiba’ alama hizo za Chadema; wafuasi wake, bodi ya wadhamini na watu wake wa kampeni walianza kusambaza mitandaoni nembo ya M4C huku wakidai ni nembo mpya ya CCM.

Malya amesema mbali na hilo la kuiba nembo ya chama, wamekuwa na tabia ya ‘kukopi’ na ‘kupesti’ kila hatua inayo pigwa na Chadema na kuzitumia katika kampeni zao.

Akivitaja baadhi ya vitu vinavyokopiwa na CCM amesema, Magufuli amesikika mara kadhaa akiwa anatumia sera na Ilani ya Chadema na Ukawa, pia amekuwa akiiba kauli mbiu za Chadema pindi anapokuwa katika kampeni zake.

“Hii ni dalili za kushindwa kwa CCM hana sera wameishiwa na ndio maana wanafuata nyayo zetu kila tunapoenda na kila tunalofanya wanalifuatilia na kuaza kutukopi. Kwa mfano sisi tunatumia Lowassa mabadiliko mabadiliko Lowassa na wao wameshaiga kwa kutumia jina la Magufuli”.

Aidha, Malya amesema Chadema inasikitushwa sana na kitendo cha Tume ya Taifa ya Uchaguzi (NEC) kwa kuwa kimya huku vitendo vya rushwa vinazidi kukithiri toka kwa CCM.

Malya ametaja baadhi ya matukio yenye viashiria vya rushwa kuwa, Magufuli alionenekana akimpatia mtoto pesa taslimu elfu 30 katika moja ya kampeni zake, huku Mgombea mwenza wa CCM Samia Suluhu Hassani naye mara kadhaa ameonekana akigawa pesa kwa wananchi wanaohudhulia katika kampeni zake.

“Matukio yote hayo bado tume imekaa kimya japo kuwa tumeshapeleka barua za malalamiko na kutuahidi kulishughulikia kesho. Vivyo hivyo kwa Taasisi ya Kushuhulikia Rushwa Tanzania (TAKUKURU) ambayo tulitegemea itakuwa ya kwanza kukemea hilo lakini ipo kimya na tumeshaandika barua ya malalmiko”.

Amedai, pia CCM wamezidi kukiuka sheria za uchaguzi kwa kuyachana mabango ya Mgombea Urais wa Chadema, Edward Lowassa hadharani na kwamba, wanakiuka sheria

Amesema, matendo hayo yote yanayofanywa na CCM na kuwa wanakuika sheria za umiliki wa nembo za biashara ya mwaka 1986 na kanuni ya umiliki huo ya 2000 pamoja na taratibu zingine za umiliki.

Internet access is a Human Right - UN report declared 2011


67. Unlike any other medium, the Internet enables individuals to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds instantaneously and inexpensively across national borders. By vastly expanding the capacity of individuals to enjoy their right to freedom of opinion and expression, which is an “enabler” of other human rights, the Internet boosts economic, social and political development, and contributes to the progress of humankind as a whole. In this regard, the Special Rapporteur encourages other Special Procedures mandate holders to engage on the issue of the Internet with respect to their particular mandates. 

68. The Special Rapporteur emphasizes that there should be as little restriction as possible to the flow of information via the Internet, except in few, exceptional, and limited circumstances prescribed by international human rights law. He also stresses that the full guarantee of the right to freedom of expression must be the norm, and any limitation considered as an exception, and that this principle should never be reversed. Against this backdrop, the Special Rapporteur recommends the steps set out below. 

A. Restriction of content on the Internet 


69. The Special Rapporteur is cognizant of the fact that, like all technological inventions, the Internet can be misused to cause harm to others. As with offline content, when a restriction is imposed as an exceptional measure on online content, it must pass a three-part, cumulative test: (1) it must be provided by law, which is clear and accessible to everyone (principles of predictability and transparency); (2) it must pursue one of the purposes set out in article 19, paragraph 3, of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights , namely: (i) to protect the rights or reputations of others; (ii) to protect national security or public order, or public health or morals (principle of legitimacy); and (3) it must be proven as necessary and the least restrictive means required to achieve the purported aim (principles of necessity and proportionality). In addition, any legislation restricting the right to freedom of expression must be applied by a body which is independent of any political, commercial, or other unwarranted influences in a manner that is neither arbitrary nor discriminatory. There should also be adequate safeguards against abuse, including the possibility of challenge and remedy against its abusive application.

1. Arbitrary blocking or filtering of content on the Internet 


70. The Special Rapporteur is deeply concerned by increasingly sophisticated blocking or filtering mechanisms used by States for censorship. The lack of transparency surrounding these measures also makes it difficult to ascertain whether blocking or filtering is really necessary for the purported aims put forward by States. As such, the Special Rapporteur calls upon States that currently block websites to provide lists of blocked websites and full details regarding the necessity and justification for blocking each individual website. An explanation should also be provided on the affected websites as to why they have been blocked. Any determination on what content should be blocked must be undertaken by a competent judicial authority or a body which is independent of any political, commercial, or other unwarranted influences. 71. With regard to child pornography, the Special Rapporteur notes that it is one clear exception where blocking measures are justified, provided that the national law is sufficiently precise and there are sufficient safeguards against abuse or misuse to prevent any “mission creep”, including oversight and review by an independent and impartial tribunal or regulatory body. However, the Special Rapporteur calls upon States to focus their efforts on prosecuting those responsible for the production and dissemination of child pornography, rather than on blocking measures alone. 

2. Criminalization of legitimate expression 72. 


The Special Rapporteur remains concerned that legitimate online expression is being criminalized in contravention of States’ international human rights obligations, whether it is through the application of existing criminal laws to online expression, or through the creation of new laws specifically designed to criminalize expression on the Internet. Such laws are often justified as being necessary to protect individuals’ reputation, national security or to counter terrorism. However, in practice, they are frequently used to censor content that the Government and other powerful entities do not like or agree with. 

73. The Special Rapporteur reiterates the call to all States to decriminalize defamation. Additionally, he underscores that protection of national security or countering terrorism cannot be used to justify restricting the right to expression unless it can be demonstrated that: (a) the expression is intended to incite imminent violence; (b) it is likely to incite such violence; and (c) there is a direct and immediate connection between the expression and the likelihood or occurrence of such violence. 

3. Imposition of intermediary liability 


74. Intermediaries play a fundamental role in enabling Internet users to enjoy their right to freedom of expression and access to information. Given their unprecedented influence over how and what is circulated on the Internet, States have increasingly sought to exert control over them and to hold them legally liable for failing to prevent access to content deemed to be illegal. 

75. The Special Rapporteur emphasizes that censorship measures should never be delegated to private entities, and that intermediaries should not be held liable for refusing to take action that infringes individuals’ human rights. Any requests submitted to intermediaries to prevent access to certain content, or to disclose private information for strictly limited purposes such as administration of criminal justice, should be done through an order issued by a court or a competent body which is independent of any political, commercial or other unwarranted influences. 

76. In addition, while States are the primary duty-bearers of human rights, the Special Rapporteur underscores that corporations also have a responsibility to respect human rights, which means that they should act with due diligence to avoid infringing the rights of individuals. The Special Rapporteur thus recommends intermediaries to: only implement restrictions to these rights after judicial intervention; be transparent to the user involved about measures taken, and, where applicable, to the wider public; provide, if possible, forewarning to users before the implementation of restrictive measures; and minimize the impact of restrictions strictly to the content involved. Finally, there must be effective remedies for affected users, including the possibility of appeal through the procedures provided by the intermediary and by a competent judicial authority. 

77. The Special Rapporteur commends the work undertaken by organizations and individuals to reveal the worldwide status of online impediments to the right to freedom of expression. He encourages intermediaries in particular to disclose details regarding content removal requests and accessibility of websites. Additionally, he recommends corporations to establish clear and unambiguous terms of service in line with international human rights norms and principles and to continuously review the impact of their services and technologies on the right to freedom of expression of their users, as well as on the potential pitfalls involved when they are misused. The Special Rapporteur believes that such transparency will help promote greater accountability and respect for human rights. 

4. Disconnecting users from Internet access, including on the basis of intellectual property rights law 


78. While blocking and filtering measures deny users access to specific content on the Internet, States have also taken measures to cut off access to the Internet entirely. The Special Rapporteur considers cutting off users from Internet access, regardless of the justification provided, including on the grounds of violating intellectual property rights law, to be disproportionate and thus a violation of article 19, paragraph 3, of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. 

79. The Special Rapporteur calls upon all States to ensure that Internet access is maintained at all times, including during times of political unrest. In particular, the Special Rapporteur urges States to repeal or amend existing intellectual copyright laws which permit users to be disconnected from Internet access, and to refrain from adopting such laws. 

5. Cyber-attacks 


80. The Special Rapporteur is deeply concerned that websites of human rights organizations, critical bloggers, and other individuals or organizations that disseminate information that is embarrassing to the State or the powerful have increasingly become targets of cyber-attacks. 

81. When a cyber-attack can be attributed to the State, it clearly constitutes, inter alia, a violation of its obligation to respect the right to freedom of opinion and expression. Although determining the origin of cyber-attacks and the identity of the perpetrator is often technically difficult, it should be noted that States have an obligation to protect individuals against interference by third parties that undermines the enjoyment of the right to freedom of opinion and expression. This positive obligation to protect entails that States must take appropriate and effective measures to investigate actions taken by third parties, hold the persons responsible to account, and adopt measures to prevent such recurrence in the future. 

6. Inadequate protection of the right to privacy and data protection 


82. The Special Rapporteur is concerned that, while users can enjoy relative anonymity on the Internet, States and private actors have access to technology to monitor and collect information about individuals’ communications and activities on the Internet. Such practices can constitute a violation of Internet users’ right to privacy, and undermine people’s confidence and security on the Internet, thus impeding the free flow of information and ideas online. 

83. The Special Rapporteur underscores the obligation of States to adopt effective privacy and data protection laws in accordance with article 17 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Human Rights Committee’s general comment No. 16. This includes laws that clearly guarantee the right of all individuals to ascertain in an intelligible form whether, and if so what, personal data is stored in automatic data files, and for what purposes, and which public authorities or private individuals or bodies control or may control their files. 

84. He also calls upon States to ensure that individuals can express themselves anonymously online and to refrain from adopting real-name registration systems. Under certain exceptional situations where States may limit the right to privacy for the purposes of administration of criminal justice or prevention of crime, the Special Rapporteur underscores that such measures must be in compliance with the international human rights framework, with adequate safeguards against abuse. This includes ensuring that any measure to limit the right to privacy is taken on the basis of a specific decision by a State authority expressly empowered by law to do so, and must respect the principles of necessity and proportionality. B. Access to the Internet and the necessary infrastructure 

85. Given that the Internet has become an indispensable tool for realizing a range of human rights, combating inequality, and accelerating development and human progress, ensuring universal access to the Internet should be a priority for all States. Each State should thus develop a concrete and effective policy, in consultation with individuals from all sections of society, including the private sector and relevant Government ministries, to make the Internet widely available, accessible and affordable to all segments of population. 

86. At the international level, the Special Rapporteur reiterates his call on States, in particular developed States, to honour their commitment, expressed inter alia in the Millennium Development Goals, to facilitate technology transfer to developing States, and to integrate effective programmes to facilitate universal Internet access in their development and assistance policies. 

87. Where the infrastructure for Internet access is present, the Special Rapporteur encourages States to support initiatives to ensure that online information can be accessed in a meaningful way by all sectors of the population, including persons with disabilities and persons belonging to linguistic minorities. 

88. States should include Internet literacy skills in school curricula, and support similar learning modules outside of schools. In addition to basic skills training, modules should clarify the benefits of accessing information online, and of responsibly contributing information. Training can also help individuals learn how to protect themselves against harmful content, and explain the potential consequences of revealing private information on the Internet.

Dartmouth College invites applications for the Cesar Chavez/Charles A. Eastman/Thurgood Marshall Dissertation Fellowships from US citizens who plan careers in college or university teaching.

The goal of the Chavez/Eastman/Marshall fellowship program is to promote student and faculty diversity at Dartmouth, and throughout higher education, by supporting completion of the doctorate by underrepresented minority scholars (including African-American, Latina/o, and Native American scholars) and other graduate scholars with a demonstrated commitment and ability to advance educational diversity.

The Fellowships support graduate scholars for a 12 month residency at Dartmouth that generally runs from September through August. They offer an opportunity for scholars who plan a career in higher education and have completed all other Ph.D. requirements to finish their dissertations with access to the outstanding libraries, computing facilities and faculty of Dartmouth College. Fellows may be pursuing the Ph.D. degree in any discipline or area taught in the Dartmouth undergraduate Arts and Sciences curriculum. Each Fellow will be affiliated with a department or program at the College.

Three Fellowships will be awarded. Each Fellowship provides a stipend of $36,000, office space, library privileges, and a $2,500 research assistance fund. Fellows will be expected to complete the dissertation during the tenure of the Fellowship and may have the opportunity to participate in teaching, either as a primary instructor or as part of a team. While visiting Dartmouth, Fellows will enroll in thesis research as a graduate special (non-degree) student and will receive a full tuition scholarship towards the tuition billed to their student account.

Applicants will be selected on the basis of academic achievement and promise; membership in a racial or ethnic group that is currently underrepresented among faculty in the applicant's academic field or demonstrated commitment to increasing opportunities for underrepresented minorities and increasing cross-racial understanding; and potential for serving as an advocate and mentor for minority undergraduate and graduate students.

Consideration will be made for scholars who seek to share their research as presenters and lecturers in the Dartmouth community. Each Fellow will be expected to participate in selected departmental activities with undergraduate students (for example, presenting guest lectures in classes, serving in programs for minority students interested in academic careers, and interacting with undergraduate majors in host departments).

Mkurugenzi wa Habari na Mahusiano wa Jeshi la Polisi, Advera Bulimba, aliyasema hayo wakati akizungumza na Nipashe ofisini kwake jana.

Bulimba alisema kuwa taarifa za uwapo wa ukurasa huo wa Twitter, wamekwishazipata na wanafanya uchunguzi wa kina kumkamata mhusika kisha kumfikisha kwenye vyombo vya sheria.

“Tunazo taarifa juu ya ukurasa huo wenye wafuasi wengi kwa sasa na unaotumika kuwashambulia viongozi wa serikali na wa siasa hasa wale wanaogombea nafasi kubwa za utawala nchini, hivyo Jeshi la Polisi lipo kwenye uchunguzi ili kumbaini mtu huyo haraka iwezekanavyo,” alisisitiza Senso.

Ukurasa huo ulioanza kutumika kabla ya Sheria ya Uhalifu wa Mtandaoni kuanza kutumika, una wafuasi zaidi ya 6,000 kwa sasa na umekuwa ukitumika kuwachafua wagombea urais nchini hasa wa upinzani.

Aidha, umekuwa ukitabiri matokeo ya uchaguzi, kitendo ambacho kimekuwa kikiwachanganya wananchi.
Bulimba alisisitiza kuwa jeshi hilo liko makini na linafuatilia hivyo mtu huyo atasakwa na kukamatwa akiwa mahali popote.

Aliwataka pia wananchi kuripoti katika vituo vya polisi pindi wanapopata vitisho vya aina yoyote, kudhalilishwa ama kufanyiwa kitu chochote kibaya kupitia mitandao ili wahusika wachukuliwe hatua za kisheria.

“Jeshi la polisi linafanya kazi usiku na mchana, hivyo mtu yeyote asijidanganye kwamba atavunja sheria na asikamatwe, maana tuna njia nyingi za kuwabaini watu hao kwa kushirikiana vyema na TCRA pamoja na wananchi, hivyo chanzo chochote kinachohusu uhalifu wa mtandaoni, kitashughulikiwa,” aliongeza.

Aliwaonya pia watu waliokuwa wakitumia kurasa mbalimbali kwenye mitandao ya kijamii kwa kutumia majina ya watu wengine ili kudhalilisha watu na kupotosha umma kwa kutoa taarifa za uongo juu ya masuala mbalimbali kuachana mara moja na tabia hiyo maana wakibainika watachukuliwa hatua kali za kisheria na kuwa mfano kwa wengine wanaojihusisha na vitendo hivyo.
