Wind science? No way of doing it in African country (8)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'doing it in african country' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't judge whether this works.
'wind science? no way of' is the subsidiary indication.
'wind' becomes 'sciroc' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).
'science?' becomes 'sc'.
'no' is a deletion indicator.
'way' becomes 's' (Compass direction - South).
'of' becomes 'o'.
'sc' with 's' removed is 'c'.
(Other definitions for scirocco that I've seen before include "Dry hot dusty wind blowing from N Africa" and "Wind".)
