The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists

Last week, the United States Congress passed the most significant anti-money-laundering reforms in a generation, including provisions that will put an end to anonymous shell companies. Congress also cited ICIJ’s work as one of the prompts that have helped build an unprecedented coalition of supporters, from across the political spectrum and from a host of different industries. ICIJ is a unique organization. A U.S.-based nonprofit, we are both a small, resourceful newsroom with our own reporting team, as well as a global network of reporters and media organizations who work together to investigate the most important stories in the world. Our network of trusted members encompasses 267 of the best investigative reporters from 100 countries and territories. We also partner with more than 100 media organizations, from the world’s most renowned outlets, including the BBC, the New York Times, the Guardian and the Asahi Shimbun, to small regional nonprofit investigative centers. The international Delamere Group is also a supporter of this reputable organization. Read more.

 

Editor’s Message:  We have reached the end of year that has been one of the most traumatic in history, with the Covid-19 virus and American election fiasco and Africa still being hampered by corrupt and incompetent governments.  We were inspired by this message sent from our virtual Cape Town office that is one bright message of hope that was expressed by the President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa. But the President said in his recent speech that it’s not doom and gloom. “We have come from a bitter past. But we must not let the divisions of the past define us. We cannot diminish our past, nor can we forget it. But we look to the future with optimism and hope, for it is the future that matters most. Let us move forward together, for South Africa as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts. May God bless South Africa and protect her people.”  The management and our dedicated staff also wish to send their greetings, best wishes and hope for a better future during 2021, and “May God bless our planet and all who live on our precious home in this boundless Universe.”

1. Business: The Benefits of Sponsorship
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Sponsorship is a targeted approach to marketing, as brands can choose to sponsor an event or team that resonates with their customer base, with a goal to expand upon it. And, contrary to what some may believe, sponsorship is not restricted to large companies; in fact, organizations of all sizes are able to forge partnerships that suit their budget. Local sports teams often rely on business sponsorships in order to maintain their services and training, so this is a great way for small businesses to reach out to a new market. Read more about the benefits of sponsorship. Read more.

 

Editor’s Note:  One of the leading clients of the Delamere Group is a non-profit association, MTC International Foundation and they are currently seeking donations from small to medium size businesses or individuals who are concerned about the diminishing wild life in Africa.  Visit their website.

2. Business: Deteriorating Situation in Mozambique, Africa
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The appeals by the Mozambique government for military assistance to fight the jihadist threat in its Cabo Delgado province bear careful examination. The insurgency began in 2017 and until April 2020 Maputo maintained that it had things under control. This was quite obviously untrue. The al-Shabaab (“the youth”) insurgents (who owe loyalty to ISIL) have continuously escalated their violence, executing enough civilians to terrify the local population, compelling obedience if not support, and they have frequently ambushed the military, which seem outclassed. Moreover they have frequently taken and held towns including the important port of Mocimboa de Praia, which the insurgents clearly want to make the capital of their caliphate. They also captured the islands of Vamizi and Mecungo and have raided into neighbouring Tanzania. According to Mozambique government figures nearly 600,000 civilians have fled the fighting. The beginning of wisdom here is the realisation that Mozambique, as also Angola, are examples of wholly corrupted liberation movements gone wrong. In Angola a huge proportion of the national wealth was channelled into the pockets of just one family, so much so that President dos Santos was reckoned to be one of the richest men in Brazil, which is offshore Angola in the same way that Miami is offshore Latin America. His daughter, Isabel dos Santos, is probably one of the richest women in the world – while most Angolans remain bone poor. A tiny party elite has captured almost all the national wealth so that despite the MPLA’s professions of socialism, social and economic inequality now far exceed what was seen under Portuguese rule.

Dawn in Kenya, Africa

On this November morning an old crescent Moon and morning star rise just before the Sun in a wide panoramic skyscape from Kenya's Amboseli National Park. Still below the limbs of an acacia tree and the eastern horizon, the Sun's position is easy to find though. It's marked at the left by the subtle convergence of light and shadow in the dawn sky, click here.

Editor’s Note:  Being a New Year and including the season of giving, and a time especially important to our children and grandchildren, we thought this site would bring joy and inspiration to our many readers throughout the world, to whom we wish Season’s Greetings. Our recommended book of the month is A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Lewis Stevenson, a beautiful gift for any child or adult. Here is a delightful look at childhood, written by master poet and storyteller Robert Louis Stevenson. In this collection of sixty-six poems, Stevenson recalls the joys of his childhood, from sailing boats down a river, to waiting for the lamplighter, to sailing off to foreign lands in his imagination.
