SAFARI KWA AFRIKA BORA

Randgold Resources chief executive Mark Bristow will lead his fifth trans-Africa motorbike safari (the fourth under the Nos Vies en Partage banner) in a challenging cross-continental ride which will start on the east coast at Mombasa in Kenya on 1 June 2016 and end at Matadi in DRC on the west coast at the end of that month, having passed through or around the dense equatorial Congolese jungle as well as the origins of the Congo and Nile rivers, more than 8 400 kilometre passage apparently never attempted on motorbike before.

Titled Safari Kwa Afrika Bora, Swahili for Journey for a Better Africa, the 2016 ride aims to raise $3 million for the Nos Vies en Partage Foundation, an independent charitable foundation set up by Randgold in 2014, and headed by the company’s former chairman Philippe Liétard, which is mandated to help fight poverty in Africa, with a particular focus on needy women and children that have been left behind by society. Previous rides raised $2.5 million, which has been distributed to more than 55 entities in 15 different African countries. The ride will pass through the Democratic Republic of Congo, where the Foundation has already committed itself to the support of projects designed to support abused women and rehabilitate child soldiers as part of that country’s post-conflict reparation programme.
