7 Fascinating Facts about Guinea
 
03:24
Let’s talk about Guinea. First and foremost, there are four countries that contain the name Guinea: 3 in Africa and one in Oceania. Why? Because Europeans called a big chunk of West Africa simply Guinea and the 3 modern African countries are in that region. And the Oceanian Papua New Guinea got its name because Europeans thought the people there look like the people from Guinea. You can now support this channel via Patreon, by accessing the link bellow.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. The region was called Guinea broadly when it was first "discovered" by Europeans, before the colonization. If you look at the map, Europeans had already started to name specific parts of "Guinea" individually: Gold Coast , Wheat Coast, Slave Coast, Ivory Coast, etc. When Europeans were first exploring western Africa, they gave broad regional names. Specifics got filled in later. 2. The Niger River, which starts in the densely forested southeast highlands of Guinea, is the principal river of western Africa. It is the third longest river of Africa. Its name possibly comes from the Tuareg phrase 'her n gheren', meaning 'river of rivers'. This name, shortened to ngher, is a local name used along the middle stretch of the river near Timbuktu, Mali. 3. The land that is now Guinea belonged to a series of African empires until France colonized it in the 1890s, and made it part of French West Africa. Guinea declared its independence from France on 2 October 1958. From independence until the presidential election of 2010, Guinea was governed by a number of autocratic rulers. 4. Conakry, the capital of Guinea, is apparently one of the wettest capitals in the world with an incredible 3.7 metres of rain per year! 5. Guinea boasts of spectacular landscape with lush and verdant rainforests and plenty of wildlife in the south. The waterfall-rich Fouta Djalon Plateau in the west has breathtaking scenery. 6. The country of Guinea has vast amounts of mineral and agricultural resources, containing approximately 25% of the world’s bauxite reserves, a major component of aluminium. But Guinea's poorly developed infrastructure and rampant corruption ranks the country as the 182nd least developed nation out of 188. 7. The literacy rate of Guinea is one of the lowest in the world: in 2010 it was estimated that only 41% of adults were literate. Primary education is compulsory for 6 years, but most children do not attend for so long, and many do not go to school at all. Children, particularly girls, are kept out of school in order to assist their parents with domestic work or agriculture, or to be married: Guinea has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world.

Formerly known as French Guinea (French: Guinée française), the modern country is sometimes referred to as Guinea-Conakry in order to distinguish it from other countries with "Guinea" in the name and the eponymous region, such as Guinea-Bissau and Equatorial Guinea. Guinea has a population of 12.4 million and an area of 245,860 square kilometres (94,927 sq mi).The sovereign state of Guinea is a republic with a president that is directly elected by the people and is head of state and head of government.

Guinea is a traditional name for the region of Africa that lies along the Gulf of Guinea. It stretches north through the forested tropical regions and ends at the Sahel. The English term Guinea comes directly from the Portuguese word Guiné, which emerged in the mid-15th century to refer to the lands inhabited by the Guineus, a generic term for the black African peoples below the Senegal River, as opposed to the 'tawny' Zenaga Berbers, above it, whom they called Azenegues or Moors. Guinea is a predominantly Islamic country, with Muslims representing 85 percent of the population. Guinea's people belong to twenty-four ethnic groups. French, the official language of Guinea, is the main language of communication in schools, in government administration, and the media, but more than twenty-four indigenous languages are also spoken. Guinea's economy is largely dependent on agriculture and mineral production. It is the world's second largest producer of bauxite, and has rich deposits of diamonds and gold. The country was at the core of the 2014 Ebola outbreak. Human rights in Guinea remain a controversial issue. In 2011 the United States government claimed that torture by security forces, and abuse of women and children (e.g. female genital mutilation) were ongoing abuses of human rights.

Narco States in West Africa, Dr. LMadu7

Comments With Dr. James Haney Presents*Narco States in West Africa, with Dr. LMadu7. I need you to support and subscribe to this channel. Send me a donation at www.drjameshaney.com or mail me a few dollars to james haney,P.O. Box 591, Mt. Juliet, Tn, 37121-0591. I appreciate any help you can give, drjhaney Once ravaged by the transatlantic slave trade, the West African coast is again under attack. It is ironic that in the 19th century, Europe's hunger for slaves devastated West Africa, and two hundred years later,it could be said that its growing appetite for cocaine could do the same. Just like the corrupt African chiefs played a vital role in selling their own people to Europeans, corrupt African leaders are doing the same today through drugs. When the leadership, rather than the criminal elements in a society plays a leading role in such crimes, social and legal order breaks down, and the moral fiber of the society is destroyed.
