In recognition of the 5th Anniversary of the Constitution of Kenya (CoK) which was promulgated on August 27 2010 the Kenya Diaspora Global Summit scheduled for September 28-30, 2015 in Newark, New Jersey, USA has identified Devolution or “Ugatuzi” and the Diaspora as a focal point and Special Sub-Theme. Pursuant to Chapter 11 of CoK 2010 on Devolution, Kenya embarked on one of the most rapid and ambitious devolution processes going on in the world, with new governance challenges and opportunities. By the Diaspora change agents and leaders organizing by County, it will be possible to channel investments more effectively for the benefit of both Diaspora members as well as County citizens.
This week on Diaspora Truth we feature Zambian Afro-Jazz songstress Yvonne Mwale who has just released her latest record “Ninkale – Let It Be” in Frankfurt (Germany).
With her latest album Yvonne Mwale is further establishing her position in the global World Music scene. First reviewers have been excited about the artistic and technical quality that take Zambian music to a whole new level. The album is available in all popular music stores and streaming services around the world (e.g. iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, Deezer and many more).
In July Yvonne will perform at the Africa Festival in Stuttgart (Germany).

An Important Nigerian Independence Day Event (October 1st, 12 PM EST)
“Nigerian Diaspora Tele-Forum”
An Initiative Endorsed by Ambassador Habu.
Please be informed that the petition to host regular meetings with the Diaspora representatives and the Nigeria consulate abroad was approved by Ambassador Habib Habu before he left office. We are now in the process of integrating the program as an adopted policy. This is one of the reasons we will be having the first Nigerian Diaspora Teleforum on October 1st, 2015 to mark the Nigerian Independence Day. The forum will serve as a preparation towards the actual launching of the Nigerian Diaspora Forum scheduled to take place on October 31st, 2015 at the Nigeria Consulate in New York. We ask for your support and solidarity in our collective effort to transform Nigeria in becoming a nation that reflects the true value of its best citizens.

The Nigerian Diaspora Forum is an initiative of African Views Organization
Facilitated in partnership between African Views and NiDO NY
AV tele-forum is an efficient way to connect required intelligence for specific purpose across the world in real-time. The platform also enables general participation in important forums and discussions allowing intellectual and experiential contribution towards the common good and shared concerns.
In an effort to build consensus across the Global African Diaspora around strategies for cooperating and coordinating, CFA collaborates with African Views to facilitate a conference call of Diaspora leaders in the Western Hemisphere, as part of the 2015 Ronald H. Brown African Affairs Series. While time, distance and travel resources have proven to be significant obstacles in the coordination of Diaspora in support of Africa, this effort can bridge the gap, by holding the first of several conference calls of Diaspora leaders around the globe to open and strengthen dialogue.

Radio Nyabinghi Intercontinentale (R.N.I) se veut être la caisse de résonance d'une rumeur aujourd'hui grandissante. Longtemps professée & longtemps prophétisée. Un bourdonnement sourd, impérieux qui bientôt se transformera en tumulte impétueux. Inexorablement.
Il s'agit du rapatriement des Afro-descendants. Des membres de la Diaspora Noire disséminés à travers l'occident & au-delà. Ceux pour qui l'appel du plus beau Continent retentit & s'exerce en eux comme une attraction magnétique. Comme un devoir, une nécessité, comme un vide à combler, une raison d'être. Ceux bien inspirés qui pressentent l'implacable marche de l'Histoire se dérouler sous leur yeux & qui pour rien au monde ne la laissera se jouer sans eux. Actifs pas passifs. Victorieux pas victimes.
Radio Nyabinghi Intercontinentale (R.N.I) veut œuvrer avec réalisme & pragmatisme à donner encore plus d'écho à cet état de fait. A répondre aux interrogations nombreuses, aux doutes & à l'incertitude. A donner un modus operandi. A travers l'expérience concrète de ses animateurs, de ses thèmes abordés, de ses invités & de l'Irrépressible Culture Noire.
