In this issue

A man on a mission – Rwandan President and Chair of the African Union Paul Kagame stands tall in the December 2018 – January 2019 issue of FORBES AFRICA. Kagame, who is the African of the Year for 2018, says Africa needs to stand together in handling continental matters because there are more things that similarly affect Africans than actually are different. In seeking solutions for African challenges, we lay bare the scourge of child labor in West Africa. In celebrating Africa’s stellar accomplishments, South Africa reaches for the stars as a team builds one of the country’s first privately-owned nanosatellites. There are currently 13 space agencies listed in Africa and there have been 28 satellites launched by African countries so far. Also learn more about the artist who came up with the $3,000 sneakers. All this and more of our regulars on money and investment habits, in the new issue of FORBES AFRICA.
