Minerals Minister Says Africa Has Enough Natural Resources  

Africa has the natural resources, like gas and oil, to sustain itself and can also provide it to the rest of the world. It’s only problem is leadership, Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe said at the Africa Oil Week conference in Cape Town yesterday, Eye Witness News reports. The minister said that the EU’s decision to stop importing gas from Russia was an opportunity for Africa to earn her income through exports into Europe. Minister Mantashe addressed the more than 1,000 delegates from over 80 countries on how oil and gas is being an enabler for better coordination on the continent. This comes amid preparation for the COP27 climate talks where calls to move away from fossil fuels such as oil and gas will take centre stage.
