Latest Issue

The August / September double issue brings you the most important stories shaping contemporary Africa. We ask if Ethiopia’s new leader, Abiy Ahmed’s reforms are too fast for a country based on an ethnic-based federal system; and if DRC can see an end to the troubles in the east. In other features we ask if Netflix can rescue Egypt’s TV industry; will Botswana’s elections be spicier than ever before and if class Apartheid has replaced race in South Africa. We also review the African Nations Cup and pay homage of one of Africa’s greatest photographers.
