By Kieran Guilbert LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Sierra Leone's decision to back an international treaty on the rights of women in Africa could lead to a new law banning female genital mutilation (FGM) in a country where the practice is rife, campaigners said on Tuesday. The Ebola-hit country last week became one of the last West African nations to ratify the Maputo Protocol, which addresses a range of issues including FGM, violence against women, child and forced marriage, and women's economic empowerment. The treaty, which was first adopted by Mozambique in July 2003 and has been ratified by 37 African states to date, should compel Sierra Leone to introduce a law banning FGM nationwide, according to rights group Equality Now.

President of Zimbabwe Mugabe arrives to attend Sudan's President al-Bashir inauguration ceremony at the National Assembly in OmdurmanBy MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - Signs that Zimbabwe is relaxing its black economic empowerment drive could see a rise in British investments in the southern African nation, according to an embassy report, following an exodus of investors in recent years. Known as "indigenisation" in Zimbabwe, the empowerment policy aims to redress colonial-era imbalances by forcing foreign companies to sell majority domestic stakes to local black investors. "Despite continued mixed signals, there are encouraging signs that the government is softening its stance on indigenisation and developing more investor friendly policies," the British embassy report said on Tuesday.
