By Dialogo February 01, 2012 SAN JOSÉ, Costa Rica – Authorities in Costa Rica seized a ton of cocaine and arrested five in connection with the cargo, Security Minister Mario Zamora said during a news conference on Jan. 31. Costa Rican coast guard units seized three boats carrying fuel along the southern Pacific coast, finding a ton of cocaine in one of the vessels. Two Costa Ricans and three Colombians were arrested at the scene. Five suspects other fled the scene on foot, Zamora said. The shipment, with a street value of more than US$6 million, originated on Colombia’s Pacific coast and was bound for Mexico, according to Zamora. “This is a heavy blow to drug trafficking,” he said, adding that around 900 tons of cocaine a year are smuggled north via Central America. Costa Rican authorities confiscated a total of 7.2 tons of cocaine in 2011 and discovered a ton of the drug buried on a Pacific beach earlier this month.

South African multinational cellular operator MTN has entered into partnership with Africa – The Good News, a pioneering website that tells Africa’s stories of hope and opportunity from an African perspective, as a legacy project of the 2010 Fifa World Cup. “At MTN, we believe emerging markets present enormous growth opportunities for those with the appetite, dedication and capacity to harness their full potential for the benefit of all their stakeholders.” “It is about hope and the new winds of change that are gusting over her nations and the growing opportunity in arguably the most ethnically diverse, biologically rich, scenically beautiful continent in the world.” Africa – The Good News co-editor and publisher Stuart Pennington said that as South Africa geared up to stage the World Cup, the focus of 208 football-playing nations and an estimated 26-billion cumulative television viewers would be on South Africa and Africa. MTN executive Nozipho January-Bardill told delegates that the Africa – The Good News project relayed messages of African hope, goodwill and development without ignoring the challenges the continent was facing. 17 September 2009 Productive investment climate MTN, the only Africa-based global sponsor of the World Cup, announced the partnership at the 13th Highway Africa conference for African journalists in Grahamstown last week. “The MTN Group’s exceptional growth since its founding in South Africa in 1994 bears testimony to the productive climate for investment on the African continent,” January-Bardill said.
