Barbados-Kenya Business Alliance

One encouraging approach of this Mottley government is the obvious policy to forge closer links with the Mother Country. Many are smiling at the news an MOU was signed to pursue trade, investment and knowledge sharing opportunities with the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank). Also the alliance between Kenya and Barbados which saw a two day conference which brought together business people across different sectors in both countries.

The detractors will continue to moan that improving alliance with Africa countries is being being pursued because traditional source markets have dried up, so what!

  • Kenya is a great partner and a great role model for our island. There used to be up to 100 ministers and state secretaries there. Anyone who does not take Africa as a model and criticises the number of ministers in Barbados is without a doubt a racist, imperialist and colonialist. Have I forgotten another martial term from the vocabulary of WOKE and BLM?

  • We have advocated for an alliance with Afrika for years, but the outward HATRED of the continent and all things Afrikan by the colonial pretenders in the parliament, who NEVER CONSIDERED THEMSELVES AFRICAN and took it as a step down….was in the way and they thumbed their noses at our suggestions…..now they have to HIDE THAT HATRED and get on with it, because in truth and in fact THEY HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE…

    As advised, Afrika has to keep an eye on them, security forces MUST STAY ON HIGH ALERT, NEVER TAKE THEIR EYES OFF THEM for one minute or REGRET IT……..since Mia had the TOTAL DISREPECT to OUR ANCESTORS AND US…. and audacity to send HER CRIMINALS for minorities, to OUR continent to perpetrate schemes and scams ON OUR AFRICAN PEOPLE and their GOVERNMENTS…after the way they have WANTONLY robbed, oppressed and marginalized the Black/Afrikan population across the Caribbean diaspora with their weaponized RACISM for HALF CENTURY…AFTER the previous centuries of criminal behavior directed against Afrikans…

    now their little descendants of indentured servants, with their corrupt FAKENESS …and the other rifraff criminals in the syrian and white community got the frigging nerve to act like they are in control of Afrika and it’s financial environs..

    This piece, if a throwaway comment could be so described, seems intent on providing a good news day for the regime in Bridgetown.

    This writer has travelled to, lived in, is a citizen of, collectively dozens of Afrikan countries.

    It therefore seems childish for us to be still minded to approaching Afrika with rose-coloured glasses.

    The mental disposition of the government and its supporters at other times seem not dissimilar to those who would have exploited Her.

    The truth is that Afrika has many of the post slavery, post colonial problems that we have in Barbados and yet there is a mindlessness which postulates that business cultures, both there and here, could be transcended in the absence of radical transformations either there or here.

    Have we not tried this already and failed. Remember OSA’s solar project in Nigeria.

    We remain unconvinced that enough thinking has gone into such an initiative and see it as merely a last ditch response to failures with our preferred friends. This is a necessary but insufficient precondition for having real relations with Afrika.

    While I support government’s efforts to have greater relationships with Africa, seeing such as just another “option” is very short -sighted.
    @ Pacha’s response should not be taken lightly. The business culture of many African countries must be learnt and most of all respected. This will take sometime . Any unnecessary haughtiness such as seeing Africa as just another “ option” because apparently nothing much is coming from UK, USA and Canada is not the attitude to take.
    @WURA has repeatedly warned that we be guided by humility ; understanding most of all, that we have very little to offer Africa.
    That being said, I support the government’s efforts. It’s really a case of better late than never because the calls for closer ties with Africa go back to the 60s.

    For such a relationship to be beneficial the two groups especially the young should have been studying and forming cultural relationships with each other. This should have been a slow burning relationship which would have organically developed into a business relationship.

    For the record, this relationship represents a win-win- one for Kenya. The white Kenyan race never entirely left the country after independence. They reside in Nanyuki, Aberdare, Nyeri and in the foothills of Mount Kenya where the weather is surprisingly cold. They have serious money. Ditto the Indians. There is a fair number of extraordinary wealthy black Kenyas. On top of this mix you have a number of countries who have recently targeted and are now embedded in Kenya such as India, Turkey, China and Israel.

    I should also add land and real estate prices are astronomically elevated in Kenya. Kenya could easily swallow up Barbados economy if it so desired.

    @ Dr. GP

    Similarly to you, I don’t have any problem with teaching Swahili or any other African language in our schools.

    However, I do not believe my appreciation of African history, culture or heritage, should be defined by the number of contributions I excessively post to BU about Africa.

    What I find interesting is that some people believe we should FOCUS PRIMARILY on their opinion that, “anti-Black/Africanism started in the colonial parliament by black faces to please a the local and foreign thieving racist consortium who now all HAVE THEIR EYES ON OUR CONTINENT.”

    I’m yet to read anything in any of their contributions, indicating an expression of concern about how the “thieving racist CHINESE CONSORTIUM that now all HAVE THEIR EYES ON OUR CONTINENT,” which they seem to be on a mission to systematically recolonize and exploit.

    The Chinese are going into Africa for various reasons. China have been extending more loans to countries such as Kenya, Ethiopia and Zambia that is beyond their capacity to repay. Ethiopia is one of the largest recipients of Chinese aid in the world.

    I’ve read an article in the ‘Economic Times,’ in which its author suggested the Chinese are of the opinion Africa is a backward continent they should exploit for its natural resources “and use as a platform to give Chinese companies the opportunity to invest and create infrastructure that is more useful to China than the host country.”

    Since this blog is about Kenya, are you aware in the period between 2000 and 2019, Kenya borrowed US$9.2B from China, which is also reported to own approximately 72% of that country’s external debt?

    From 2014, President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration took loans from China to finance infrastructural development, (roads, bridges, etc) and to build power plants and the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR).

    Let’s examine SGR. In May 2014, Kenya borrowed 324 billion Kenyan Shillings from the Exim Bank of China to build SGR. According to news sources, the operation agreement required the Kenyan government to provide a fixed service monthly payment of US$28.8M, to be paid quarterly in advance commencing after the five (5) year grace period expired.

    Collectively, Kenya borrowed approximately 420 billion Kenyan Shillings, to construct the railway and purchase engines and coaches.

    Africa Star Railway Operation Company Ltd (Afristar), a subsidiary of a Chinese owned company called China Road and Bridge Corporation, was contracted in May 2017, to operate the passenger and cargo trains on the SGR……….. and “listed clearing of its debts as a pre-condition, before SGR operations can be transferred to Kenya in May 2022.”

    Interestingly, one of the conditions of Chinese loans requires the borrowing countries to prioritise repayments to Chinese state-owned banks ahead of other creditors.

    Note how they’ve already gained the requisite expertise in operating the railway, because its operations was outsourced to a Chinese owned company. So, default on their loans and your property becomes theirs.

    If you’re interested, I’ll invite you to read more about Kenya’s indebtedness to the Chinese and how such debt adversely affected the country’s economy, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

    “He also promised that the Integrity in Public Life Bill would be back before the Lower House by the end of October, while another piece of legislation to protect whistleblowers would be laid by the end of September.

    “I know that a large number of Barbadians expected and still expect that they would get a pound of flesh. They expected then and they still expect that individuals will be dragged before the courts and they have expressed to me and to others a disappointment in this administration not having been able to achieve that particular aim within the time that has passed so far,” Marshall said.”

    Noting that the current Corruption Act dated back almost 100 years to 1929, Marshall described the new Bill as “modern” and said it would form the centerpiece of a whole suite of legislation aimed at cutting out corruption.

    “When you ask how are we dealing with the issue, the first thing that we are doing, we are investigating yes, but the first thing we are doing is to put a new piece of legislation on the table,” he said.”

    and blah, blah, blah…the same piece of legislation the US used to effectively LOCK UP DONVILLE for moneylaundering…your legislation and you can’t even get it used and it’s 100 YEARS OLD, but your new one will work….😂😂

    “Award winning Barbadian poet, LaShawna Griffith, describes her latest collection of poems, “Melanin Drops”, as a call to action for the black race to rise up against all the prejudices, psychological and mental slavery that have kept them down over the years.

    She said: “The title itself is about blackness. I wanted it to speak to all of the issues affecting the black race in Barbados, including mental health, criminal activity, as well as black love and togetherness.

    “We have been taught over the years to think negatively about ourselves and with the call for reparations now becoming more urgent worldwide, we must break out of this pattern.”

    The book is divided into three chapters. The first is entitled, “A Man without History is like a Ship without a Sail” and in Griffith’s words, “covers the whole concept of where we are, and where we need to go.”

  • They need to start addressing the modern day slavery that they have PUSHED the people into in the last 3 years…… ESPECIALLY THE YOUNGER GENERATION of Black Africans in the majority population and why they deliberately and MALICIOUSLY did it as a government elected by the PEOPLE..in the 21st century when they could easily have given them the chose access the continent. AS DESCENDANTS, to see what opportunites are available to them and if they wanted to take part, that choice was taken away from them because the wicked had their anti-black agendas to fulfill with the corrupt..

    It’s interesting that we are being told about the short comings of the Integrity Legislation before it is even made law.
    I guess they (BLPDLP) will take another hundred years to fine tune it.

    “Payne also insisted that though he fully supported the Prevention of Corruption Bill currently before lawmakers, it lacked the teeth and grit necessary to make a real dent in what he saw as a problem that continues to erode public trust.

    “Though the non-partisan Bar Association and the Integrity Group Barbados made suggestions to the 2018 Integrity in Public Life Bill and once again made several contributions to the new anti-corruption bill, Payne questioned why these suggestions, including campaign finance laws, had not made it to the floor.”

    then they won’t have to answer for anything, because they will be just as dead as all of us…..in the meantime, the US was able to successfully use the same 1929 legislation BELONGING TO BARBADOS that was never used before in nearly 100 years, to successfully investigate, arrest, convict and lock up a former Barbados government minister for money laundering in the US, that happened IN BARBADOS…and this one got the nerve to tell us what legislation can’t and cannot work…and how difficult it is to investigate, arrest and convict the corrupt and we all witnessed the US do it and did not even break a sweat…

    these are the same dirty games they have played for over 40 YEARS..

    they continue taking this corruption for a joke because they are all lawyers and have the notion that they will continue to use all the available loopholes for them and their corrupt friends to weasel out of these crimes forever…

  • It seems they want to add protection to whistle blowers in integrity legislation.
    But, they could/should take it one step further where it is a complicit crime for Government workers and bankers performing dodgy instructions not to report any suspected suspicious financial activity by filing a report to NCIS agency like in US Law.
