Policy, Guns and Money: Africa Day

In this episode, ASPI Executive Director Peter Jennings speaks with Kenya’s high commissioner to Australia, Isaiya Kabira, about the significance of Africa Day (coming up on 25 May) and the continent’s progress since the establishment of the Organisation of African Unity in 1963. They talk about the impact of Covid-19 in Africa as well as the state of Australia’s ties with Kenya and Africa more broadly.

The Strategist’s Brendan Nicholson then talks to Australia’s high commissioner to Nigeria, Claire Ireland, about the two countries’ bilateral interests and the evolution of Australia’s relationship with Africa.

And to round out this special episode, ASPI’s Lisa Sharland interviews journalist and filmmaker Santilla Chingaipe about the African diaspora in Australia and how different communities have been affected by Covid-19.
