At first glance, the small West African nation of Equatorial Guinea is doing well. Sandwiched between Cameroon and Gabon on the Gulf of Guinea, the oil-rich nation of 820,000 has a per capita GDP equivalent to that of the Czech Republic or Portugal. But the picture is more complicated than that. Much of its population lives in conditions similar to that in the world’s poorest countries. Infant mortality rates are worse than in Ethiopia or war-ravaged South Sudan. Many people lack access to clean drinking water and about half the population lives in poverty. A large chunk of Equatorial Guinea’s oil revenues are thought to have been lost to corruption. All this has taken place under the watch of President Teodoro Obiang, who’s been charge since 1979, when he ousted his own uncle in a mil...
Equatorial Guinea on Tuesday confirmed for the first time that they have offered former Gambian President Yahya Jammeh political asylum after leaving his country on exile last Saturday.

Equatorial Guinea is facing economic recession due to a decline in oil revenues. The country had hoped to receive about 100 million U.S dollars from each million barrel of petrol exported. Today, they expect almost less than half. This has not only been caused by a fall in global oil prices, but also a decline in production has been witnessed as main petroleum fields are over exploited. "Our citizens feel this crisis because a reduction in oil prices has reduced job opportunities in comp… READ MORE : http://www.africanews.com/2016/05/03/equatorial-guinea-struggles-with-economy-amid-falling-crude-prices Africanews is a new pan-African media pioneering multilingual and independent news telling expertise in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Equatorial Guinea’s mismanagement of its oil wealth has contributed to chronic underfunding of its public health and education systems in violation of its human rights obligations. The government spent only 2 to 3 percent of its annual budget on health and education in 2008 and 2011, the years for which data is available, while devoting around 80 percent to sometimes questionable large-scale infrastructure projects. Declining oil reserves mean that there is very little time left for the government to correct course and significantly invest in improving the country’s woeful health and education indicators.
Equatorial Guinea will hold presidential elections on Sunday, and its leader of thirty years predicts he will win almost 100 per cent of the vote. Equatorial Guinea had a low international profile until large oil reserves were discovered in 1994. Since then, its per capita income has expanded to more than $30,000 a year,. making it the richest nation in sub-Saharan Africa. But living conditions for most people in the country remain harsh. Many of them survive on less than a dollar a day. And the life expectancy for the average citizen is just 50 years. Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege sat down with President Obiang in the capital Malabo in his first interview with foreign media in several years.

As the African Union meets in Malabo, a small blogging "Colectivo" works to tell the story the mainstream media ignores. And, Iceland is using Facebook to crowdsource its new constitution. Is this the next best step in democracy or mob rule?
The former President of the Gambia, Yahya Jammeh, has arrived in Equatorial Guinea, starting a new life in exile, a day after relinquishing power. Jammah was persuaded to hand over power to Adama Barrow, who defeated him in an election last month, by the regional group, ECOWAS. Jammeh went to Equatorial Guinea via Guinea...

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has placed Equatorial Guinea under the radar over its declining economic and development growth that was expected to thrive until 2020. Every tool that has been deployed to save the drowning economy seems not be working.
