It is with great pleasure that I introduce this year’s second issue of African Journal of Business and Economic Research (AJBER). This issue features ten papers, covering six African countries; Ghana, Mauritius, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Zimbabwe. The topics covered addresses the issues ranging from stock market efficiency to executive directors’ remuneration disclosure; the viability of emerging and frontier currency carry trades as an asset class in Africa; effectiveness of business management and entrepreneurship training offered by small and medium enterprise service providers; perceptions of various aspects of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment; gender gap in accessing formal credit for entrepreneurial purposes; organizational alignment; brand awareness and loyalty; government expenditure, economic growth and unemployment. While these studies are country specific, the focus of the studies and findings are applicable to other African countries. Let me take th............

 The present Issue of Affrika: Journal of Politics, Economics and Society (JPES) attempts a somewhat panoramic look at the African continent by engaging with issues concerning various African countries.  In specific terms, the Issue contains eleven scholarly contributions on seven different African countries namely Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Sudan, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Nigeria. More remarkable is the fact that one of such articles foraged beyond Africa by beaming its searchlight towards the interplay of Africa and the United States of America. At the end of it all, the Issue comprises seven research articles, one opinion article or commentary, and three book reviews. The beauty of this lies in the representation of the three foci of the journal, namely politics, economics, and society, in this Issue. These indeed are among the factors demonstrating the uniqueness of the present Issue, as will be articulated below. In their article entitled “Terrorism in Africa: A............

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." The implications of Mandela\'s death are far-reaching for a country that has been bedevilled with political uncertainty with............

The year 2013 marks the 50th anniversary celebration of the formation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU). It will also be a little more than a decade since the formation of the African Union (AU), which seeks to promote “an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in global arena”. Consequently, the Heads of State declared the year 2013 the Year of Pan-Africanism and the African Renaissance. The 21st Ordinary Session of the Summit of the AU also took place from 19-27th May 2013 under the theme “Pan Africanism and African Renaissance”.  As declared by the AU, the anniversary is expected to facilitate and celebrate African narratives of past, present and future that will enthuse and energize the African population and use their constructive energy to accelerate a forward looking agenda of Pan-Africanism and renaissance in the 21st century. It provides a unique opportunity, and comes at a ............
