Africa Report: Climate change and crisis impact area of sport

By Neelam Rahim

In discussion with Radio Islam International on this week’s Africa Report is Head of Programmes at Media Monitoring Africa, Thandi Smith.

Kenyan election results are out. Many are asking whether Raila Odinga is perhaps the most unlucky candidate in African history, the fifth time now that he lost. There was a lot of misinformation post the Kenyan election result.

Thandi said people waited in anticipation for this result. There was a lot of contestation and misinformation that impacted voting.

She also stresses that misinformation is as just as essential post results.

Regarding climate change and the commonwealth games. Thandi said a couple of journalists were conversing with some athletes about training. A Kenyan athlete said it’s becoming horrific to train for 2/3 hours in the heat, impacting performance. It is reportedly directly linked to the climate crisis and climate change.

Meanwhile, it was reported that a London Museum is returning artefacts to Nigeria.

Thandi said this speaks to ongoing issues of conciliarity. Decades later, we still do not see the process and correct implementation of what some countries agreed to in colonial times.
