But explorers have been the meaningful mapmakers. Initially, after Bartolomeu Dias first rounded the Cape of Good Hope in 1488, the continent was something for sailors to pass by on the way to India and the spice islands of the East Indies. A 16th‑century map (see Sebastian Münster’s “Totius Africæ tabula” [1554]) even provides basic directions from Portugal on how to do just that: “keep the coast on the left, don’t stop much, and turn due east after rounding the cape.” For two hundred years most Western countries followed those instructions.

IMF Urges East Africa Nations to Use Good Times to Build Buffers East African nations with economic growth outpacing others on the continent should use the current good times to create cushions against inevitable tough periods, the International Monetary Fund’s director for Africa said. While sub-Saharan Africa’s economic growth is expected to slow to 1.4 percent this year, nations such as Kenya and Rwanda forecast 6 percent expansion as they benefit from lower oil prices and public spending on infrastructure projects.
