Force majeure

Season 2, Episode 16

Duration: 40m

The African Business Editor’s Roundtable is a new forum in which our journalists debate some of the most important business stories on the continent. 

In this episode, African Business Magazine editor David Thomas is joined by publisher Omar Ben Yedder and digital editor and reporter Shoshana Kedem. We discuss the implications of Total’s decision to call force majeure on its $20bn LNG facility in Mozambique amid a deadly insurgency, the disappointing Ethiopian telecoms auction, what Africa can learn from India’s disastrous Covid-19 crisis, and whether Africa’s diamond market is again sparkling after a tough year. We also pay tribute to a pioneer of African journalism who passed away this week.
