ANALYSIS: A decade after debt forgiveness, Africa still hooked on dollars

- When rich countries wrote off billions of dollars of African debt in 2005, they hoped governments would think twice about borrowing again in costly foreign currencies. Over a decade later, most sub-Saharan African countries still rely on US dollar-denominated debt to finance their economies. Some investors say this is sowing the seeds of future debt crises if local currencies devalue and make dollar debt repayments more expensive

With the goings-on of the past two years, it is still fair to say that the government, which has partly presided over the country’s 12-place slide in the latest global press freedom rankings, has had a less than perfect relationship with the media
