Sub-Saharan Africa has been on world headlines in recent months, more for devastating and heart-wrenching news than for any other. The news is sour from the South to North, West to East – and especially so in the largest economies such as South Africa and Nigeria, and other rising power houses such as Kenya. In the particular case of South Africa, December 6, 2013 marks a great loss as the world witnessed the departure of a global statesman who delivered his country from the dark days of apartheid, Nelson Rolihlahla (troublemaker) Mandela, South African anti-apartheid revolutionary who was imprisoned and then became a politician, philanthropist, and President of his country between 1994 to 1999, who died at the age of 95. As the current President Jacob Zuma put it (Laing, 2013) "Our nation has lost its greatest son."

African Business in a global context. These range from the public policy actions towards environmental sustainability; business development services and/ or support for micro-enterprises; the debate over food aid vis-a-vis food security; the place and role of women in the economic development of the continent; the role of SMEs in international business travel; and the growing importance of Tourism as a tool for economic development in both poor and scant reported contexts such as the Comoro Islands, as well as well researched middle income countries such as Ghana.

On the sad note, four presidents/ heads of government have died whilst still holding office, Chinese investments in the continent have unravelled their dark side, Islamists have reared their ugly heads in both Mali and Nigeria, and protesters have been mowed down by police in South Africa. On a positive note however, the World Bank’s Doing Business report has identified one of the best reformers to be from the continent – i.e. Rwanda. What’s more? Ethiopia only recently made history by taking delivery of the coveted Boeing 787 “Dream liner” aircraft, well ahead of India and other global players – albeit only a few days before the country lost its leader.      On the death of presidents in office, it is worth mentioning that since 2008, this has happened only 13 times worldwide, but Africa holds a record of 10 out of these. The latest is the death, af............
