Vantage Capital (www.VantageCapital.co.za), Africa’s largest mezzanine fund manager, announced today that it has provided a debenture facility of N$80 million (R80 million) to United Africa Group (“UAG”) (www.UnitedAfricaGroup.com.na), an established hospitality and property-owning group in Namibia. The funding is being used to support the group’s equity contribution for the construction of a new Hilton Garden Inn, a 181-key three-star hotel to be located in the heart of the Windhoek city centre on Freedom Square, adjacent to UAG’s existing five-star Hilton Windhoek Hotel.

UAG was founded in 1992 by Haddis Tilahun and was later joined by his wife, Dr. Martha Namundjebo-Tilahun. It has since grown rapidly to become one of the largest property-owning and hospitality groups in Namibia, with ten existing hotels in its portfolio (nine operated by Protea and one by Hilton) as well as commercial real estate in Windhoek covering over 12,000 m2 of office space and in excess of 2,500 m2 of retail space.

Growing tourism demand in Namibia has been a key driver behind the hotel construction project. Tourist arrivals to Namibia have shown consistent growth over the past five years and the trend is expected to continue going forward, with tourist arrivals projected to double over the next ten years. The Namibian Government has in fact identified tourism as one of the economy’s key growth sectors over the next decade. The new hotel will be equipped with all the amenities expected of a world-class business and leisure hotel including a pool, sundeck, gym and roof garden. The proximity to the existing Hilton Windhoek Hotel will also allow for the sharing of services including conference facilities.

The Hilton Garden Inn forms part of the broader 2.4 hectare Freedom Square development that is being undertaken by UAG. The site is bordered by Sam Nujoma Drive to the south, Independence Avenue to the west, Fidel Castro Street to the north and the Supreme Court of Namibia to the east. It is one of the few remaining undeveloped sites in the Windhoek city centre and is in a prime location, situated close to a host of government ministries, corporate head offices and shopping centres. In addition to the five-star Hilton Windhoek Hotel and three-star Hilton Garden Inn, the square will incorporate public spaces as well as government’s new Social Security headquarters, a high-end residential building and a new head office for First National Bank.

“We are delighted to partner with UAG for our first investment in Namibia and Vantage’s 21st mezzanine transaction overall,” said Warren van der Merwe, chief operating officer of Vantage Capital. “UAG has built up a quality portfolio of hospitality and commercial property assets under the strong leadership of Haddis and Martha Tilahun and we are pleased to provide them with financial backing as they further entrench themselves as a leader in the local hospitality sector.”

David Kornik, associate partner at Vantage Capital, added that “we always look for our funding to facilitate expansion and economic development; in this investment we are therefore proud to be supporting a local business group, in a project that will have a significantly positive impact on tourism growth as well as on the development of Windhoek’s city centre.”

Willem Mouton, chief executive officer of UAG added, “We are pleased to bring Vantage on board as an experienced African investor who shares our views on the exciting prospects for Namibia’s tourism and hospitality sector. We look forward to a mutually rewarding partnership in the coming years.”

The United Africa Group investment is Vantage Capital’s third transaction in Fund III, which is targeting a final close of US$260 million (R4 billion), and has a 60% allocation to countries outside South Africa. After supporting the Servest buyout last year, Vantage’s Fund III recently concluded a $20 million investment in a Nigerian property group, Landmark. The Fund is expecting to close its fourth transaction during the first half of 2016 for an investment of over $17m (R250m).

Seychelles joins the majority of the States Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in signing the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change which aims to enact policies to effect greenhouse gases emissions mitigation, adaptation and finance, starting in the year 2020.

A total of 176 countries including Seychelles have heeded the call of the United Nations Secretary-General Mr. Ban Ki-moon, and signed this agreement which reaffirms the strong commitment of Governments of the world to deliver on the promises made when the agreement was brokered in Paris last December 2015. The Signing ceremony held in New York is but the first step towards the implementation of the agreements.

Individual countries must now complete internal procedures of ratification before the agreement can come into force. To cement the Paris agreement international policy on climate change, a minimum of 55 countries representing at least 55 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions must ratify the Paris Agreement. Only then will the agreement be legally binding to all its signatories.

Seychelles implores the rapid ratification by other countries to ensure implementation of this agreement commence swiftly. Seychelles also calls on all the governments to take the challenge and to show continued political will, and fulfill the commitments to achieve the future that we want.

The Agreement was signed by Ambassador Marie-Louise Potter, Permanent Representative of the Republic of Seychelles to the United Nations, on behalf of Seychelles Head of State, Mr. James A. Michel.

Thus far 15 countries have ratified this agreement, most of them Small Island Developing States with low carbon footprint, including Barbados, Belize, Fiji, Grenada, Maldives, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Nauru, Palau, Palestine, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Samoa, Somalia and Tuvalu.

Media Note

Office of the Spokesperson

Washington, DC

April 25, 2016

Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources Heather Higginbottom will travel to Madagascar and Kenya, April 25–May 1.

Deputy Secretary Higginbottom is among the most senior U.S. State Department officials to visit Madagascar. As the country returns to democracy, her visit underscores the support of the U.S. Government for the Malagasy people. During the visit, she will discuss governance, including transparency and accountability, development and economic growth, and the preservation of Madagascar’s unique environment. She will meet with President Rajaonarimampianina and other government officials as well as visit U.S. foreign assistance programs related to health, community development, and wildlife protection.

In Kenya, Deputy Secretary Higginbottom will participate in the Giants Club Summit, a high-level meeting of heads of state, business leaders, and wildlife experts to discuss ways to protect Africa’s remaining elephant populations and their environments.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders is concerned about the resurgence of targeted killings in recent weeks in Burundi. Many of these attacks targeted senior officials of the National Defence Forces and the police.

Violence, wherever it comes from, is unacceptable and brings the country further away from a negotiated solution to the current crisis. These attacks show the urgency of resuming the dialogue under international mediation. Only an unconditional and inclusive dialogue, with the real protagonists of the crisis, will allow a way out of the current situation. Didier Reynders welcomes in this context the organization by facilitator Benjamin Mkapa of an inter-Burundian dialogue meeting from 2 to 5 May in Arusha, Tanzania.

The Secretary-General condemns the assassination of Brigadier General Athanase Kararuza, his wife and daughter in Bujumbura today. Brigadier General Kararuza had served in senior positions in both the African-led International Support Mission to the Central African Republic (MISCA) and the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA). The Secretary-General extends his deepest condolences to all affected by this tragic loss.

The assassination of Brigadier General Kararuza comes in the wake of several instances of politically-motivated assassination attempts in Burundi over recent weeks, including yesterday’s attack on Martin Nivyabandi, Minister of Human Rights, Social Affairs and Gender, as well as those on prominent members of the security forces. All such acts of violence serve no purpose other than to worsen the already volatile situation in Burundi. The Secretary-General urges that a rigorous and prompt investigation of these events is undertaken.

The Secretary-General underlines that a political process is the only way for Burundians to put their country back on the path of national reconciliation and peace. He calls on all political leaders, including those in exile, to firmly renounce the use of violence in pursuit of political agendas and commit to an inclusive and genuine dialogue. The United Nations will continue to provide its full support and assistance to all efforts aimed at promoting a peaceful settlement in Burundi.

United Nations Special Rapporteur Dainius Pûras will visit Algeria from 27 April to 10 May 2016 to assess how far the right to health has been realised in the country.

“I look forward to learning how Algeria endeavours to implement the right to health, including the measures the country has taken to date and the challenges it faces,” Mr. Pûras said.

His visit will be the first visit to Algeria by an independent expert charged by the UN Human Rights Council to monitor the implementation of the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health.

During the visit, the Special Rapporteur will examine achievements and challenges related to the enjoyment of the right to health, including the availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality of health services, goods and facilities. Mr. Pûras will also assess factors that affect the right to health in the country, including poverty and social exclusion.

“I will be particularly interested in addressing specific issues during this visit, especially within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” the expert said. Among these issues are: access to primary healthcare; sexual and reproductive health; mental health; violence against women and girls; HIV/AIDS; and drug and substance use.

The Special Rapporteur will examine the situation of key populations and groups, such as refugees and asylum seekers, migrants, and persons with disabilities, as well as women, young people and children.

The UN Special Rapporteur will share his preliminary conclusions on the visit with the media at a press conference on 10 May 2016 at 10:00, at the UN House, 41 Rue Mohamed Khoudi- El Biar, Algiers.

Today, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator Gayle Smith released the following statement in honor of World Malaria Day:

“On World Malaria Day, USAID joins partners across the globe in commemorating incredible progress in the fight against malaria. When President Bush created the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) in 2005, the disease was almost certainly a death sentence for most poor children in Africa. Thanks to his efforts, President Obama’s expansion of the initiative, bipartisan support in Congress, and the hard work of partners around the world, today six million lives have been saved, a vast majority of whom are children.

“But our fight is not over. A child still dies every two minutes from malaria. So we must also answer President Obama’s calland work to end malaria within a generation. As the world’s leading donor in global health, the United States stands ready to work with partners to intensify efforts around the world to save lives and stop this disease in its tracks.

“PMI is emblematic of what can be achieved with leadership, vision, and hard work sustained over time. Through PMI, hundreds of millions of people have benefited from protective measures and have been diagnosed and treated for malaria. On World Malaria Day, we celebrate this progress, remember those we have lost, and reaffirm our commitment to ending malaria for good.”

About the President’s Malaria Initiative

PMI is a U.S. Government initiative led by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Today, PMI supports 19 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, and countries in the Greater Mekong sub-region. Read PMI’s 10th annual report to Congress here.

#CallYourShot campaign

In conjunction with World Malaria Day, USAID has teamed up with a coalition of partners, including the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets and Malaria No More to launch the #CallYourShot campaign to raise awareness and funds in the fight against malaria. Basketball star Stephen Curry, along with other athletes, celebrities, and everyday champions, are taking part and taking their shots to end malaria for good.
