Latest Issue

We devote virtually the whole of the June-July issue of New African to a detailed examination of the Covid-19 epidemic as it impacts on the continent. We examine how Africa has so far kept it mostly at bay and what lifting the lockdown will mean in terms of the economies and social cohesion. We also run a Special Report on Cameroon as it moves gradually towards internal peace and profile two of Africa’s most talented soccer stars playing in Europe.
