Aspiring cross-cultural missionaries must develop the capacity to personally hear from and obey God. This ability is supernaturally achieved through the Holy Spirit by cultivating life-giving habits. Among them are bible reading, prayer, service, and participation in the Body of Christ.

Earlier this year, cases of malaria began to rapidly increase in the Ethiopian city of Dire Dawa. There were ten times the number of cases in the first half of the year, than the whole of 2019. And unlike usual, the spike was happening outside the rainy season which allows the disease to flourish. It was also spreading in urban areas, rather than mainly in the countryside. Scientists have since uncovered it was due to an invasive species of malaria-carrying mosquito from Asia. So far it's been found in Ethiopia, Djibouti and all the way over in Nigeria, putting millions of people at risk. So, how can we respond to this new medical threat? #AfricaDaily

C'est une formation ouverte aux étrangers... assez peu connue ! Chaque année, depuis 66 ans, la France entraîne et forme 15 officiers et 15 commissaires de police, près de 2 000 depuis la création de ce cursus. Des élèves venus du monde entier et qui, une fois de retour dans leur pays d'origine, sont amenés à occuper des postes à hautes responsabilités. Reportage à Saint-Cyr-au-Mont-d'Or, près de Lyon, à l'École nationale supérieure de police, où sont formés les apprentis commissaires étrangers.  Au menu cet après-midi : cours sur les moyens de communication avec le fameux talkie-walkie ! La formation de dix mois vient tout juste de commencer alors il faut revoir le b.a.-ba pour ces élèves étrangers. Et même si tous les élèves ont déjà une expérience dans la police de leur pays, la communication est parfois moins évidente que prévu.  À l'autre bout du parc de l'école nationale de police, derrière la place d'armes, en plein exercice de talkie-walkie, voici Mohamed, 34 ans, fraîchement arrivé de Djibouti, son pays natal : « À Djibouti, je suis chef de pôle du flagrant délit, au commissariat central. On a beaucoup de violence volontaire, de détournements de fonds, on a des menaces de mort. » Si Mohamed veut obtenir son diplôme de commissaire en France, c'est parce qu'il a une idée derrière la tête : « Après avoir obtenu mon titre de commissaire ici, au retour dans mon pays, je vais accéder au grade de capitaine. » Un avantage pour lui, mais aussi pour la police de son pays, car cela lui permet d'être « plongé dans un service opérationnel et savoir comment on procède, détaille Mohamed, essayer de s'inspirer de certaines techniques efficaces pour pouvoir les importer On essaye de construire la police de demain. » Une coopération qui donne à la France un statut international en matière de formation à la sécurité Ici, la formation est entièrement gratuite. Le site de Saint-Cyr, près de Lyon, accueille les élèves commissaires français ainsi que 15 étrangers par an. Parmi eux, la cheffe de brigade Imène Ghodbane vit à Alger. C'est elle qui a été sélectionnée par les services algériens pour venir en France. « J'ai participé à un concours au niveau du territoire national, raconte Imène Ghodbane. Il y avait une cinquantaine, peut-être soixante personnes, il y avait une sélection déjà de la part de ma direction, des épreuves écrites, notamment sur nos capacités en français, des épreuves orales. Ensuite, nous avons passé un entretien au niveau de l'ambassade. » Martine Coudert est la directrice de l'école nationale supérieure de police. Elle insiste sur la plus-value pour ses élèves étrangers : « C'est gagnant-gagnant, pour eux cette formation est très lourde, c'est dix mois. Ils repartent avec un diplôme qui a une valeur importante. Nous avons des cadres de police étrangers qui sont devenus directeurs général de la police nationale de leurs pays, ce qui est quand même pas mal ! » Pour postuler à cette formation, trois conditions sont essentielles : avoir déjà une expérience dans la police, être francophone et avoir moins de 40 ans.

La crise de Fachoda, en 1898, survient dans un climat de tension entre la France et le Royaume-Uni, sur fond de rivalités coloniales en Afrique. En premier lieu, les deux pays essaient de s'implanter en Égypte. Pour l'Angleterre, la mise en tutelle de ce pays est un objectif essentiel, car il se trouve sur la fameuse route des Indes, artère vitale de la puissance coloniale britannique. Mais, depuis la campagne d'Égypte de Bonaparte, en 1798, et la création du canal de Suez par Ferdinand de Lesseps, en 1869, la France y a aussi des intérêts. Mais cette rivalité coloniale se nourrit aussi de la confrontation entre deux projets concurrents. En effet, l'Angleterre tient avant tout à sécuriser la route Le Cap-Le Caire, principale voie d'accès aux Indes, tandis que la France ambitionne de relier Dakar, sur la côte atlantique, à Djibouti, sur la mer Rouge. C'est dans le contexte de cette rivalité coloniale entre les deux pays qu'éclate la crise de Fachoda. Cette localité se trouve au Soudan, aujourd'hui le Soudan du Sud. En 1896, l'armée confie au capitaine Marchand la mission de relier l'Atlantique à la mer Rouge. Il s'agit aussi de prendre de vitesse les Anglais et d'arriver avant eux sur le Haut-Nil, pour y installer la présence française. La mission Marchand part du Sénégal en octobre 1896 et, durant deux ans, chemine en Afrique dans des conditions très difficiles. Elle parvient à Fachoda en juillet 1898 et s'y retranche. Mais, au même moment, le maréchal Kitchener, commandant en chef de l'armée d'Égypte, arrive aussi à Fachoda. Il vient de battre les mahdistes, qui menaçaient le Soudan, à la bataille d'Omdourman, en septembre 1898. Pour les Anglais, il n'était pas question de laisser les Français occuper une position stratégique sur la route des Indes. Aussi les somment-ils de quitter Fachoda. Le gouvernement français refuse d'abord, puis, le 7 novembre 1898, cède à l'ultimatum britannique. La crainte d'un conflit ouvert entre les deux pays, alimentée par la présence de l'armée de Kitchener, avait été la plus forte. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Turkey's president says a deal to free up grain exports from Ukraine will consider African countries struggling with supplies. Recep Tayyip Erdogan says he and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had discussed sending grain to African countries. Mr. Erdogan says the situation in Djibouti, Somalia, and Sudan is not good at all. If there is a problem in any other less developed countries. The grain deal was brokered by the UN and Turkey in July, bringing to an end a five-month Russian blockade of Ukrainian ports that trapped millions of tonnes of grain and sunflower oil and sent food prices soaring. The deal ends on 19 November and those involved still have to agree on extending it.

Using all modes on the 1.3 to 3.4GHz bands, the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator. Now the radio propagation report, compiled by G0KYA, G3YLA, and G4BAO They write, we had yet another week of good HF propagation, despite a strong solar wind that threatened to push the geomagnetic Kp index up, but it generally never managed more than a four in the first half of the week. The solar flux index managed to hit 130 on Thursday, having been in the 120s all week, but the sunspots have been quite weak and small. On Thursday the Kp index rose again, hitting five due to the enhanced solar wind from an Earth-facing coronal hole. Nevertheless, the Fairford Digisonde registered a critical frequency of 9.925MHz, giving a maximum useable frequency in excess of 35MHz over a 3,000km path around lunchtime. This may have been a pre-auroral enhancement as it didn't last very long – the MUF was soon down to 28.8MHz. Please note the Chilton Digisonde has been down again, so if this continues please switch to Fairford at Propquest.co.uk. The upper HF bands have been very lively with much DX being worked. 5V7RU Russian DXpedition team in Togo have made it into many logs, as has J28MD team in Djibouti. Transatlantic 10m signals remain very strong during the daylight, reflecting the good HF propagation at this point in the year, switching to South America as the Sun is setting. Next week, NOAA predicts that the solar flux index will probably remain in the 120s. It also predicts unsettled geomagnetic conditions on the 10th, 11th and 12th when the Kp index may once again rise to five. If you have been putting off getting onto HF you are really missing out! Now the VHF and up propagation news. The unsettled weather pattern is still the dominant story for the coming week with a series of lows either across the country or sitting over the nearby Atlantic, bringing periods of rain and strong winds and showery interludes in between. This raises the issue of rain scatter for another week on the GHz bands. There are probably just two periods with ridges of higher pressure. The first crosses the country on Friday night at the start of the week and the second develops over the English Channel at the end of next week, so limited Tropo options once again. November is a good month for meteor scatter with the Leonids shower starting today and peaking around the 16th. Expect some increasing signs of meteor scatter activity as the week progresses. The solar conditions continue to provide coronal holes and the prospect of geomagnetic storms, so keep a watch on the Kp index, with a high index warning of auroras. As for Sporadic-E, we are in the doldrum month of November which rarely provides anything dramatic, but the usual procedure of monitoring the foEs graphs on Propquest should reveal what's happening. Moon declination is positive again with Moon windows lengthening as the week progresses. Path losses are still low but increasing and apogee is still over a week away. 144MHz sky noise is low in the coming week. And that's all from the propagation team this week.

Pourquoi n'y a t-il pas de transport sur le fleuve Sénégal ? Pourquoi y a t-il tant de camions sur les routes d'Egypte et aussi peu de quais le long du Nil ? Les fleuves africains ont perdu le prestige d'autrefois. Comment les valoriser sur un continent en proie aux guerres, aux sècheresses ou au terrorisme ? Dans notre série Grands Témoins, en marge de l'exposition au Musée des Confluences de Lyon, nous avons rendez-vous avec Erik Orsenna. L'écrivain voyageur publie, la Terre a soif, aux éditions Fayard. Marina Mielczarek : Les fleuves africains font partie de vos fleuves préférés. Malheureusement cette richesse est sous-exploitée ou mal exploitée à cause des conflits. Le fleuve Nil par exemple avec l'Egypte et l'Ethiopie Erik Orsenna : Trois pays se partagent le trafic sur le Nil. L'Égypte étant prédominante interdisait à ses voisins dont l'Éthiopie (qui compte pourtant pour 80% du débit du Nil) d'accéder aux ressources du Nil. Or, l'Éthiopie (l'un des pays les plus pauvres du monde) a décidé que cette mainmise ne pouvait plus durer.  Vous êtes d'ailleurs allé sur place, en Éthiopie pour découvrir le barrage Renaissance que l'Éthiopie a construit toute seule, sans accord des voisins. En février 2022, ce barrage a fait la Une des médias avec l'ouverture d'une centrale hydroélectrique contestée par l'Égypte   On comprend l'intérêt de l'Éthiopie pour irriguer ses cultures. Le pays veut aussi vendre de l'électricité (surtout dans le contexte de pénurie que nous traversons en ce moment) aux voisins Djibouti, Kenya, Soudan…  Avec ce barrage, l'Ethiopie, dites-vous, accède au club des détenteurs des 10 barrages les plus puissants au monde Oui. Dans ce club il y a la Chine (barrage des Trois-Gorges) ; le Paraguay/Brésil (barrage de Itaipu) ; Venezuela (barrage de Guri)… L'ambassadeur d'Égypte, que vous avez rencontré, vous avait cependant dit que ce barrage n'existerait jamais. Cette confrontation va-t-elle aboutir en une véritable guerre armée ? Ce serait possible ! Le barrage Renaissance retient 80% du débit du Nil. Je suis professeur à l'École de Guerre de Paris. Avant le conflit qui oppose la Russie à l'Ukraine, je disais que l'une des zones de plus grands risques de guerre était entre l'Égypte et l'Éthiopie. Vous dîtes que si la guerre n'est pas encore déclarée, c'est en raison de la présence chinoise en Éthiopie qui freine pour le moment la colère égyptienne Il est certain que l'Éthiopie est le pays où les Chinois se sont le plus installés. Et je ne crois pas qu'on entre en conflit avec la Chine sans y avoir réfléchi avant ! Bombarder l'Éthiopie, c'est bombarder la puissance chinoise. Avec cette menace sur le Nil, vous prouvez que les fleuves avec leur puissance hydroélectrique et leur capacité de transport sont au cœur de la géopolitique mondiale. Le terrorisme empêche également le développement pacifique des fleuves africains.  Cette pacification entre pays voisins autour d'un fleuve qui les traverse a été possible au Sénégal autour du fleuve Sénégal. Malheureusement, ces compromis n'ont pas duré assez longtemps pour développer les projets de transport de marchandises ou de passagers. Les jihadistes et les enlèvements de personnes ont arrêté net les promesses de travaux. Donc de développement économique. Le fleuve Sénégal, un fleuve que vous connaissez comme votre poche grâce à une association africaine avec laquelle vous travaillez... Il faut s'imaginer la longueur incroyable de ce fleuve Sénégal : 1830 km traversant la Guinée, le Sénégal, le Mali et la Mauritanie. C'est en 2006 que la Guinée a rejoint l'association de tous ces pays voisins membres de l'OMVS (Organisation de Mise en Valeur du fleuve Sénégal). Pourquoi est-ce que le tourisme ou le transport de marchandises ne se sont pas développés ? Entre autre chose pour des raisons climatiques ! Il y a eu des remontées de sel et une plante s'est installée qui a freiné la circulation sur le fleuve. Aujourd'hui, avec la construction de barrages, cette navigation n'est pas possible. Résultat, on voit des centaines de camions le long du fleuve... Elle a pourtant existé : autrefois, il y avait des bateaux sur le fleuve Sénégal Oui ! J'ai moi-même navigué sur des bateaux qui transportaient des passagers. Il faut absolument aujourd'hui retrouver cette capacité commerciale qui est un facteur de paix. Comment faire ? C'est un cercle vicieux ! Pour développer une économie, il faut entretenir les berges, construire des quais. Or, en situation de menace terroriste, les investisseurs locaux ou étrangers n'y vont pas ! Je n'ai pas de baguette magique... La jeunesse se retrouve au chômage et donc des recrues faciles pour les terroristes. Ces situations me déchirent le cœur. L'OMVS pourrait-elle relancer une volonté politique dans la région ? Nous y travaillons ! L'association, réunie cette semaine à Lyon (sud-est de la France), va envisager de futures actions sur place en Afrique, au Sénégal et en Mauritanie. Il y a des lueurs d'espoir. Pour les auditeurs de RFI, vous vouliez ajouter ? Qu'ils aillent à Lyon (ou sur le site internet) pour l'exposition Nous les Fleuves ! Les fleuves comme des personnages vivants, ceux qu'ils sont ! Cette exposition, qui dure jusqu'en été prochain au Musée des confluences, est à découvrir. Je l'ai vue, elle est magnifique !        ► Liens utiles : https://www.initiativesfleuves.org/
