TrustAfrica has organized a two-day meeting in Dakar, Senegal centred on the challenges posed by illicit financial flows from Africa, with particular focus on the West African region. It was a great opportunity for civil society to discuss the subject and to work together with other critical stakeholders for viable options to mitigate the dangers illicit financial flows pose to economic development in the region.

International Women's Day is an opportunity to recognize the great contributions of African women to the advancement of our continent. As part of our celebration this year, TrustAfricaAfricans RisingOSIWA, and Sylv Saki (“Un Mois, Un Livre”) are excited to welcome Ayisha Osori for a round table discussion of her book, Love Does Not Win Elections. Ayisha's beautifully written memoir pulls the reader in from the first sentence, as she takes us on her often unbelievable journey contesting for elections as a woman in Nigeria. Osori gives a much-needed first-hand account of Nigerian politics, from an unapologetically feminist perspective. A must-read for anyone interested in the mire that is Nigerian politics and, beyond Nigeria, in what women have to go through, almost everywhere, to "get a seat at the table".
