The Internet Society (https://www.InternetSociety.org/), a global non-profit organization dedicated to the open development, evolution and use of the Internet, today announced that it is partnering with Facebook to develop Internet Exchange Points (IXP) throughout Africa.

An Internet Exchange Point is where multiple local and international networks, ISPs and content providers interconnect their networks together to efficiently exchange Internet traffic through an arrangement commonly referred to as Peering.

 

Currently, 42% of countries in Africa lack IXPs, which means that most of their domestic Internet traffic is exchanged through points outside their respective country, usually through satellite or submarine fiber across multiple international hubs to reach their destination.  This can result in poor end-user experiences and discourages hosting content locally, which are some of the key factors towards the development of the local Internet ecosystem.

 

Peering at IXPs helps keep domestic Internet traffic local by offloading traffic from relatively expensive international links onto more affordable local links. As a result, ISPs are able to offer improved Internet experiences for end-users and spur interest in hosting content locally.

 

The Internet Society and Facebook will collaborate in promoting IXP infrastructure development, training and community engagement with the objective of increasing the number of IXPs and supporting the expansion of existing IXPs to meet the growing demand in Africa. Studies have shown that (http://bit.ly/2xAuPDe) Internet users throughout Africa benefit from Peering as it enables faster, more affordable and reliable access to content.

 

 

“The Internet community adopted the goal of having at least 80% of the Internet traffic consumed in Africa being locally accessible, and only 20% sourced outside the continent by the year 2020,”explains Dawit Bekele, Africa Regional Bureau Director for the Internet Society.  “We are getting closer to that target thanks to the many activities that promote interconnection and hosting in Africa and to partnerships such as the one we are announcing today with Facebook.”

 

 

According to the Africa IXP Association (Af-IX), there are approximately 44 active IXPs located across 32 countries in Africa.  This has resulted in a 275% growth of locally exchanged Internet traffic over the last 10 years (there were 16 IXPs in 2008). During the same period, traffic exchanged at the African IXPs increased from 0.16Gbps to 412Gbps with over 800 networks now connected at these IXPs (http://bit.ly/2zrXk77).

 

 

“We admire the Internet Society’s important work to improve connectivity in Africa by supporting IXPs,” said Kojo Boakye, Head, Connectivity and Access, Africa at Facebook. “Our partnership with the Internet Society will help develop Africa’s IXP ecosystem by deploying resources like training and equipment to the areas where they are most urgently needed.”

In line with its focus on bringing people together and supporting the development of connected communities, Facebook (www.Facebook.com) has announced the names of 116 people worldwide who have been selected to join the Facebook Community Leadership Program. Around a dozen African community leaders have been selected to become programme residents and fellows.

Many community leaders worldwide and in Africa turn to Facebook to create connections through Facebook groups, WhatsApp or Messenger,”says Nunu Ntshingila, Regional Director Facebook Africa. “This programme is all about empowering them with the tools, support and funding they need to advance their causes and build their communities.”

Since announcing the programme in February, Facebook received more than 6,000 applications from all over the world. A selection committee, which included employees as well as community experts from outside of Facebook, reviewed each application to identify leaders with a strong, clear and committed vision for their community.

 

 

Five participants have been selected globally as community Leaders in Residence, each will be awarded up to $1,000,000 to fund their community initiative. The final amount received will be determined based on final budget proposal created and submitted by each resident as part of their program training.

 

 

Kenya’s Noah Nasiali, the selected leader in residence for Africa, has brought together more than 100,000 farmers across Africa through a Facebook group in less than a year. Farming is one of Africa’s most important industries, and Noah’s community helps farmers obtain and share critical information.

 

 

“Africa Farmers Club was formed to help farmers come together to access credible, reliable and applicable farming information that will help them develop their skills and most importantly help them to get a market for their produce and in the end get returns for their hard work. I invite group members to share their stories both positive and negative through pictures so that we can learn together. Whenever possible I personally visit members face-to-face to see for myself their challenges and we discuss how they can overcome and at the same time and improve. Our community aims to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goal which is to End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.” Said Nasiali

 

 

The programme will also host more than 100 fellows and youth participants who will receive up to $50,000 each to be used for their community initiative. Fellows from Africa include:

 

 

“Our group of African fellows and our resident represent diverse perspectives from different parts of the continent, but they share a common goal of helping their communities thrive. We know they will do great things over the next year and we’re excited to get them started,” says Ime Archibong, Vice President, Product Partnerships at Facebook.

Hailing from the rural village of KwaNgcolosi, twenty-nine-year old artist Buhle Mbambo opened his very first solo exhibition at the Durban Art Gallery on Tuesday evening where he unpacked a project inspired by his family history.

Wonder Buhle Mbambo is a young gentleman with a successful story as a rural artist who has made a name for himself and changed perception about art not being a career one can make a living out of. His passion for art started back in high, “I would always use my spare time to draw sketches and do some painting. We didn’t have it as a subject so I did physical science and mathematics” he told The Daily Vox in an interview.

 

Guests gathered at Durban Art Gallery to witness the work of the renowned artist and they experience nothing less than what you will experience at any other exhibition opening of an established artist. While guests were browsing through overwhelming art pieces by Wonder on the white walls of Durban Art Gallery, Pravda Vodka kept flowing to complement the evening.

Mbambo who was over the moon with the success of his solo show said, “As a Durban Artist I really appreciated the support from the Durban Municipality (Durban Art Gallery)  as well as from all the art lovers who came through to my show I can truly say had finally launched my career as an official South African Artist and I believe Ukumisa Insika is a journey towards a bigger dream and right now I am on the open road towards it”.

 

The success of this of course came not only because of Wonder’s talent only but because of a very supportive mother who was a domestic worker. After Wonder completed his matric he took a gap year and didn’t go to university because he didn’t know what he wanted to do, and it was never a big issue. After that year he had made up his mind that he wanted to study art and his mother was very supportive of the decision despite the fact that they grew up in a rural area where people weren’t familiar with art altogether, kudos to his mother who supported and encouraged him throughout and today he is a breadwinner at home.

 

The director of Durban Art Gallery Dr. Mduduzi Xakaza extended his gratitude to everyone who attended and supported the exhibition. “It was very generous of Pravda Vodka to sponsor the function with alcoholic beverages,” he said.

 

“The KwaNgcolosi traditional performance enhanced the meaning of the exhibition concept, and the audience was very enthusiastic, asking questions about further activities around the exhibition”. he conclude.

Ukumisa Insika is officially open for the public at Durban Art Gallery, weekdays 8am – 4pm until the 9th of September 2018.

Celebrate the 100th year of Mandela’s birth with DStv – a pop-up channel and an innovative app.

Wednesday 18 July is an important date on the 2018 calendar.  On the timeline of world history, it marks a hundred years since the birth of one of Africa’s most beloved icons, legendary statesman and Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela.

On that day, DStv will launch a special five-day long pop-up channel to celebrate and honour the extraordinary life and legacy of Tata Madiba. DStv’s Mandela 100 Tribute Channel (DStv channel 199) will be available to all DStv customers across Africa.

 

Starting on Madiba’s birthday, Wednesday 18 July, at 19:00, the channel will feature an exceptional mix of films, documentaries, archive footage from M-Net’s multiple award-winning actuality programme Carte Blanche as well as exclusive celebrity interviews.

 

“Around the globe, Nelson Mandela is revered as a hero of the struggle and as the man who led South Africa to democracy.  While striving for justice and freedom and shaping a nation, he also changed the world with his humility and indomitable spirit. We are immensely proud to dedicate a unique pop-up channel to celebrate the life and legacy of this beacon of selflessness and reconciliation, who gave hope to millions,” says Yolisa Phahle, General Entertainment CEO, MultiChoice.

 

The channel, which was compiled for DStv by M-Net, Africa’s leading storyteller, is packed with programmes that paint a powerful picture of what it meant to be Madiba – and what Madiba has meant to the world.

 

Each night at 20:00 – from Wednesday 18 July to Saturday 21 July –  DStv customers across the continent can tune in for a new director’s cut, in the form of a four-part miniseries, of the landmark film The Long Walk to Freedom (2013), based on Mandela’s autobiography which focuses on his early life and 27 years in prison, and stars Idris Elba.

 

The Mandela 100 Tribute builds up to a heart-stopping climax on the final evening: Invictus(2009), the Hollywood blockbuster directed by Clint Eastwood, starring Morgan Freemanas Nelson Mandela and Matt Damon as Springbok rugby captain Francois Pienaar.

 

It is the true-life depiction of South Africa’s victory at the 1995 Rugby World Cup. Madiba famously walked on to the Ellis Park turf in the No 6 jersey, usually worn by Pienaar, to thunderous applause before the match – a stroke of genius that spurred the Springboks on to glory.

 

Other highlights include:

The Face of Unity – a documentary with previously unscreened footage and tributes from former US President Barack Obama; golf legend Jack Nicklaus; musical genius Ray Charles, and Hollywood luminaries Samuel L. Jackson and George Lucas.

 

In the Name of Mandela, War and Peace – a summary of the political history of South Africa from the time of the discovery of gold in 1886 up to the election of Nelson Mandela as President in 1994.

 

Mandela’s Unsung Heroes – an account of the Rivonia trial in which some of Nelson Mandela’s fellow accused in the trial, that led to his incarceration on Robben Island, share their memories.

 

Countdown to Freedom –  Narrated by James Earl Jones and Alfre Woodard, this independent documentary chronicles the behind-the-scenes lead-up to the rebirth of a nation and Nelson Mandela’s triumph in South Africa’s first free elections.

 

DStv customers can also access the Long Walk To Freedom miniseries, and Carte Blancheinserts on DStv Catch Up on their PVR and Explora decoders, as well as all the content from the channel on DStv Catch Up Plus through their connected Explora or on DStv Catch Up on DStv Now.

 

HISTORY Channel launches an app and more

To celebrate the 100th year of Nelson Mandela’s birth, HISTORY (DStv channel 186) and streaming live on DStv Now, will launch an app inviting viewers to share their personal stories or moments with Mandela. The innovative campaign includes pieces curated from interviews with amongst others Bill Clinton, Alfre Woodard, Robert De Niro, Richard Branson and Bono to local stars and politicians like Devi Sankaree Govender, Basetsana Kumalo,  Saleem Mowver, Cheryl Carolus, President Cyril Ramaphosa and Bongani Bingwa. The moments will be shared live across digital and linear throughout the month of July and into August.

 

HISTORY is also giving these viewers an opportunity to be heard and become a part of the campaign by sharing their own stories on how they met Madiba, via the HISTORY app.

 

The app will allow participants to be on the platform and will allow each story to have a choice of two filter options with a selection of background music to choose from.  Selected stories will be shown and shared across their personal social media platforms, as well as showcased on History’s Facebook page.

 

Yusuf Nabee, General Manager of A+E Networks Africa says, “We are excited to launch an app that enables viewers to generate their own content and to share their moment/s with the icon that was Nelson Mandela. This initiative is supported by the Nelson Mandela Foundation.”

 

In addition, during the birthday week, special relevant programming from 16 – 22 July includes:

Idris Elba: Mandela, My Dad and Me – 16 July

Monday – 19:15

In 2013, actor Idris Elba produced and released ‘Mi Mandela’, an album inspired by his time researching and portraying Nelson Mandela in ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’. This special documents one man’s struggle in producing his first album.

 

 

Mandela City – 17 July   

Tuesday, 19:15

The formidable racial prejudice that Nelson Mandela encounters on moving to Johannesburg, South Africa’s biggest city, leads to his rapid politicisation and fight to topple apartheid. The programme charts the events that began one of the most legendary civil rights campaigns of the 20th century.

 

Mandela Country – 18 July

Wednesday, 19:15

The unique story of Nelson Mandela’s early years. Born in one of the most rural parts of South Africa, Mandela is adopted by the Thembu royalty after the death of his father, but the lure of the city is more powerful than an aristocratic lifestyle in the country and Mandela flees to Johannesburg.

Mandela Rivonia – 19 July            

Thursday, 19:15

An uncompromising insight into the darkest days of Mandela’s life as he becomes the world’s most famous prisoner. Despite lengthy incarceration in an apartheid prison, Nelson Mandela overcomes indignity and harshness to begin the negotiations that will eventually lead to a democratic South Africa.

Flat 13 – 20 July            

Friday, 19:20

This is the story of the apartment in downtown Johannesburg that, between the late 1940s and early 1960s, became a hub of resistance against apartheid. Nelson Mandela described it as the place where “the first seeds of non-racialism were sown and a wider concept of the nation came into being.” He was concerned that history accurately record the role played by all freedom-loving people towards the final liberation of the country.

Mandela Tribute: Farewell Father – 22 July

Sunday, 20:15

Celebrating the great stateman’s life and the achievements he brought about through his leadership, from the inception of the ANC, imprisonment and the presidency.

In keeping with the milestone week, HISTORY will be opened to DStv customers on DStv Compact, Family and Access from 16 to 23 July. Customers don’t have to do anything to get the channel as it will automatically be made available on their package.
