Review from ROAPE Volume 26 Number 79
East African Alternatives
This new magazine aims to be ‘a Bimonthly Review of Political Economy in East Africa’ and as such deserves attention and support from readers of ROAPE. &break; The launch issue came out in Sept/Oct 1998. It contains useful analyses of recent developments in each of the three main countries, which will be regular features. This issue provides an exploration of the economic crisis in Kenya, the ongoing process of constitutional reform and the Moi succession - and their interconnections. The ‘Letter from Dar es Salaam’ reviews the record of President Ben Mkapa's three years in office. The partial discrepancy between President Muse-veni's international renown and tensions which appear to be growing in some parts of Uganda is the focus of the Kampala report.
