Le titre devrait-être plutôt "Le président protocolaire, -président figurant Tshisekedi préside le conseil de sécurité sur la situation à Beni"… Ah Nzambi ya Mpungu Tulendo na biso Bana Kongo-Zaïre mpo na nini boye ! Oyo koloka te, oyo kindoki te ! L'histoire est un éternel recommencement; si Henry Tandey avait liquidé une bonne fois pour toute le jeune Adolf Hitler 29 ans à l'époque, blessé près d'un village Français pendant la première guerre mondiale, il n' y aurait pas eu de "Führer" ni de "Troisième Reich", si la soumission complète du Japon rédigée et expédiée au premier ministre japonais Kantaro Suzuki, ce dernier répondit « Mokusatsu » signifiant "sans commentaire" mais mal traduite en "ignorer de manière méprisante", le 2 septembre 1945, une première bombe atomique ne serait jamais lâchée sur Hiroshima; si Mzee Kabila alors 3ème Président du Kongo-Zaïre avait réellement su en 1998 qui était son traître "Cheval de Troie" de fils adoptif Tutsi Rwandais en le condamnant à mort ou en le chassant délibérément, immédiatement, irrémédiablement comme ses frères Tutsi Nilotiques de l'AFDL (Conglomérat d'aventuriers), ce dernier n'aurait jamais pu nommer le fils du feu Sphinx président protocollaire, -président figurant en 2019… La sécurité d'un pays ne peut pas être assurée par des traîtres collabos qui ont prêté légèrement serment sur la Constitution d'un pays par dessus tout occupé car tout homme qui jure et qui ment est un traître, et mérite d'être pendu pour paraphraser William Shakespeare… FÉLIX ANTOINE TSHISEKEDI TSHILOMBO EST UN TRAÎTRE COLLABO DE LA PIRE ESPÈCE… La Mission des Nations Unies pour la Stabilisation du Congo en sigle MONUSCO collabore allégrement avec les fameux ADF NALU créés, nourris, vêtus, armés, entraînés par le machin ONU et sa mission diabolique au Kongo-Zaïre qui tuent à Beni et environs avec la complicité de la paire "Alias Kabila-Tshisekedi Tshilombo", toute la chaîne de commandement militaire établie à l'Est est Tutsi Nilotique, quand un des membres de cette chaîne génocidaire meurt sur le sol RDCien, son corps est réexpédié au Rwanda natal, ceci explique cela, comprenne qui pourra… En conclusion les autochtones d'autodéfense gardiens du Temple Kongo, les vaillants Résistants Combattants Maï Maï Makesa ANPK (Armée Nationale du Peuple Kongo) sont en guerre ouverte contre les ennemis intérieurs et extérieurs du Kongo qui s'entêtent malgré les signes du temps de leur fin de règne, qui ne veulent plus quitter le Kongo RDC où un pays où coulent le lait et le miel en abandonnant leur beefsteak minier et financier… Jusqu'à quand… Ainsi soit-il… Ingeta

La RDC (République à démocratiser) occupée par les Envahisseurs Sanguinaires Rwando-Burundo-Ougandais est devenue semblable à une PS4 Pro avec des manetettes tenues par 2 dangereux amateurs utilisant l'application "Guerre à outrance de basse intensité", qui jouent ouvertement avec les nerfs tendus des 80 millions des Kongolais indolents, matés, emprisonnés à ciel ouvert ! Le Président Fondateur de la "Tshibilie" son Excellence Généralissime Hitler en miniature "Hippolyte Kanambe" alias Joseph Kabila est bizarrement omniprésent, malgré son éviction imaginaire, son pseudo successeur est par contre lui totalement effacé malgré les apparences trompeuses, incapable d'imposer ses propres décisions qui passent pour des pétards mouillés... Une soi-disant grâce présidentielle boudée par les magistrats et juges au service de Kingakati-Kigali-Rwanda, c'est une nouvelle jurisprudence instituée en République Bannanière de la Tshibillie... Un vrai cas d'école qui vient s'ajouter à celui de la nomination de la SNCC (Sieur Gabriel Kyungu wa Kumwanza) [par le président protocolaire, président figurant] que l'ancienne ministre du portefeuille pro Rwanda Wivine Mumba Matipa a tourné en bourrique...

Eritrean Investors Provided South Sudan Capital With First-Ever Electricity

 Cache   
Eritrean businessmen are aiding in the development of African countries


Eritrean investors are continuing to pour millions of dollars in investments in South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda and Angola.

By Eritrean Press

South Sudan has received electricity for the first time marking a new era.

The Ezra Group from Eritrea has invested as much as US$289 million in a power plant that will provide 100 megawatts for Juba when completed, according to Managing Director of the company Mr Ghebrengus Ezra told reporters during the launch.

Yesterday, the grid and power distribution system was launched in the country’s capital Juba.

The government and other private institutions have been using their own generators.

Speaking at the launch (pictured), President Salva Kiir said war is over and the focus will now be on development to deliver services to people.

He said electricity will eradicate pollution that comes with large scale use of diesel in the environment, and assured the country that the government will focus on developing hydroelectric power and the renewable energy sector.

The Government Spokesman for the Republic of South Sudan has applauded the Eritrean business community in his country for the vast investment they have made and described it as exemplary in fostering the already existing excellent ties between the two people and governments.

The first phase of the 30 megawatts shall be complete in four phases over the next two years.

Eritrean investors are continuing to pour millions of dollars in investments in South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda and Angola.

According to Uganda Investment Authority (UIA), from financial year 2011/12 up to 2017/18, Eritrea has appeared among Uganda's Top 10 investment source countries, beating many traditional as well as developed source countries for foreign direct investment (FDI).

Interestingly, prior to 2011/12 financial year, Eritrea never featured in the Top 10 FDI source countries, raising eyebrows why the sudden jump.

The assurance was given to the Eritrean investors in 2011 after Uganda invited Eritrea's leader, President Isaias Afwerki, to a state visit.

Akron Church Increases Refugee Awareness

 Cache   
Terri Saelee, North American Division coordinator for Adventist Refugee and Immigrant Ministries, shares a "Loss Simulation' exercise with the Junior/Earliteen class.

Story by Heidi Shoemaker

For several years, Ohio Conference's Akron First church has actively served refugees from Burma, Thailand, Rwanda, the Congo, Uganda and Kenya who have settled in the community.

Members help these families obtain household furnishings, assist them in filling out forms and provide driving lessons. Many refugees have become a part of church life, enrolling their children in the Mayfair Christian School in Uniontown and participating in Adventurer and Pathfinder programs. The congregation hosts social gatherings, baby and wedding showers and conducts hospital visits and baptisms. This year they financially supported two refugee students attending Great Lakes Adventist Academy (Mich.).

Bill Levin, pastor of Akron First, shared details about this growing ministry with Terri Saelee, North American Division coordinator for Adventist Refugee and Immigrant Ministries. “She suggested a ‘Refugee Awareness Sabbath’ to help more of our church family become aware of the unique challenges and needs refugees have as they transition into a new land and culture. Utilizing her idea, we extended an invitation for our refugee brothers and sisters to help us get to know them and their plight a little better,” Levin says.

During Sabbath School, refugee children told young people what life was like in a refugee camp and the changes that took place upon arriving to the U.S. Saelee went to the Junior/Earliteen class and shared a “Loss Simulation” exercise to help young people wrestle with the idea of the very real loss most refugees face—the loss of family members, possessions and homes.

“[Saelee] had my students pretend that war broke out and bombs were falling. She gave them three minutes to write down four people they would take with them, four documents they would take, four favorite things and four favorite places [each on a separate piece of paper],” shares Sabbath School teacher Susan Kirschbaum. “After the three minutes, she asked them to delete one item from each category, and while they were doing that, she quietly asked me to go around and randomly remove a few papers from each kid’s stacks.”

She continues, “They were really upset—‘You took my mom!’ or ‘You took my grandma!’” and added, “I was the ‘government,’ and though they had done their best at making decisions with what they had, they had now lost control. That’s what a refugee’s life is like. It was an eye opener for everyone.”

Worship was filled with refugee friends sharing music from their native homeland, while three adults gave personal testimonies about families being detained in refugee camps. As they shared stories, the congregation was visibly moved and heartbroken for them and their struggle.

After the service, church members completed commitment sheets addressing specific things each person could do to assist and bless refugees in the community.

Kenya woos oil importers in bid to reclaim business lost to Tanzania

 Cache   

Kenya hopes to regain its petroleum export market after cutting pipeline tariffs by 50 per cent, a development that sets up stiff competition with Tanzania. Nairobi, which had lost about 30 per cent of its petroleum export market to Dar es Salaam, is also stepping up its crackdown on fuel adulteration and smuggling, a growing menace costing the government $340 million annually in lost taxes. Last week, the Kenya Revenue Authority in collaboration with a multi-agency team formed to strengthen co-ordination among different agencies in curbing illicit trade intercepted a consignment of 7,000 litres of diesel fuel smuggled from Ethiopia. This comes at a time when the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development estimates that the East African Community loses over $500 million in tax revenue annually due to counterfeiting. “KRA has enhanced vigilance at the country’s border points as part of key measures geared towards stepping up the fight against illicit trade and counterfeits,” Kevin Safari, KRA commissioner for Customs and Border Control said in a statement. Kenya hopes the intensified surveillance and crackdown on fuel adulteration and dumping will help the country recapture the petroleum export market from Tanzania. TARIFFS More critically, Nairobi hopes the lower pipeline tariffs will encourage petroleum and petroleum products importers to use the Mombasa port for products destined for neighbouring landlocked countries like Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In the new tariffs imposed by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority, oil marketing companies will pay $30.89 per 1,000 litres down from $60 to transport fuel using Kenya Pipeline Company facilities. The rates, which will apply for the next three years, will further be lowered to $30.65 in 2020 and $29.07 in 2021. “Kenya had lost about 30 per cent of its petroleum export market to Tanzania mainly due to the   high tariffs charged for pipeline transport,” EPRA director general Pavel Oimeke told The EastAfrican. He added that in the past 10 days after the implementation of the revised pipeline tariffs, the export volumes have doubled, a trend that is ultimately expected to regain the lost market share. KPC, which was pushing for an upward review of the tariffs that include the domestic market, has however protested the reduction ostensibly on the basis that it will have a negative impact on its bottom line. The company wanted an increase to raise funds to service massive debts procured to finance infrastructure investments including the new Mombasa-Nairobi pipeline constructed at a cost of $473.4 million, and the four new oil storage tanks in Nairobi that cost $50 million. The company has also invested $16 million in the Kisumu Oil Jetty. Mr Oimeke said that KPC has submitted a protest letter to EPRA, which does not amount to an appeal against the new tariffs. “They are yet to submit a detailed appeal to us. What we received is a protest letter. We have written to them and advised on how to structure the appeal accompanied with justification for each item. We will objectively review once we receive the detailed appeal,” he added. According to the Economic Survey 2019, Kenya’s volume of petroleum exports declined to 739.800 tonnes in 2018, from 842.400 tonnes in 2017. Although the value of total exports rose by 7.5 per cent to $374.2 million in 2018 on account of a growth in the value of re-exports, the value of domestic exports of petroleum products dropped by 15.2 per cent to $40.5 million in 2018. DOMESTIC EXPORTS In the first half of 2019, the value of domestic exports stood at $11.5 million from $20.2 million in same period in 2018, a 43 per cent decline. While the volumes of transit petroleum products imports in Kenya have been on the decline, Tanzania has recorded a significant rise in imports entering through the ports of Dar es Salaam and Tanga. Data by the Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority of Tanzania shows that in the financial year ending June 2018, the volume of transit products stood at 2.6 million litres compared with two million litres for 2017, a 35 per cent rise. Ewura, in its 2018 annual report reckons that importers prefer Tanzania due to the authority’s efforts in ensuring compliance to laws and standards in the downstream petroleum subsector. According to Mr Oimeke, the level of petroleum fuels adulteration in Kenya has significantly reduced since September 2018 when the anti-adulteration of $0.173 per litre was introduced for Kerosene. In addition, dumping has significantly reduced due to improvements implemented to the petroleum fuels marking and monitoring programme since January this year. The improvements include increased frequency of monitoring and stiffer penalties for culprits, which has seen compliance levels for both dumping and adulteration hit 100 per cent as at the end of last quarter. “EPRA has increased surveillance and also enlisted the help of the National Police Service to ensure that the problem is dealt with,” he said. He added that EPRA is working with regional energy regulators under the auspices of the Energy Regulators Association of East Africa to improve compliance across the region. ***   TARIFFS The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority has allowed oil marketing companies to pay $30.89 per 1,000 litres in tariffs, down from $60 to transport fuel using Kenya Pipeline Company facilities. The rates will apply for the next three years and will be further lowered to $30.65 in 2020 and $29.07 in 2021. Oil marketers pay on average $80 to ferry oil from Dar es Salaam on trucks but pay $60 tariff on pipeline to Kisumu and a further $35 to truck the product to Uganda, Rwanda and northern Tanzania buying countries. Tanzania has also stepped up competition by increasing efficiencies at the port. According to the Economic Survey 2019, Kenya’s volume of petroleum exports declined to 739.800 tonnes in 2018, from 842.400 tonnes in 2017. But KPC has protested the cut in tariffs.

Kenya retains seat at global maritime council

 Cache   

Kenya has retained its seat on the Council of the International Maritime Organisation, giving it a chance to continue playing a role in global shipping rule making. The vote on Friday evening in London saw 174 member states take part with Kenya retaining its seat under Category C of 20 countries usually reserved for those with special interest in maritime transport or navigation. In Africa, Morocco, South Africa, Liberia and Egypt are the other members of Category C. Kenya holds special interests in maritime transport and navigation as the coastal, port and flag state “whose strategic location along the Eastern Africa coast makes it a most important cog in the wheel of steering global shipping,” according to Maritime Principal Secretary Nancy Karigithu who led the delegation to the polls. “Our re-election to Council will ensure continued representation of a major geographic area in Eastern Africa and the Great Lakes region consisting of the countries Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda,” she said on Saturday. Kenya’s High Commissioner to the UK Manoah Esipisu, also the Permanent Representative to the IMO, said he was delighted by the vote result. “It confirms the world’s confidence on our leadership around maritime transport and safety, and our commitment to the Blue Economy,” he said. Kenya joined the IMO in 1973 and was first elected to the Council under Category “C” in 2001 and has been re-elected in subsequent elections to date, the last being in 2017. It is one seat at a UN agency where Kenya has dominated lately. But this election saw heavy lobbying. Some marine and shipping giants like Sweden, Nigeria and Liberia lost their bids. Qatar, a wealthy oil producer as well as Saudi Arabia also lost out. The IMO is the specialised agency that determines rules on shipping safety and environment. With more than 80 per cent of global trade running on seas, the IMO’s regulatory framework determines how shipping lines and ports operate. By The Eastafrica

Uganda and Rwanda lead East Africa in switch to electric cars

 Cache   

Uganda and Rwanda are racing ahead of their East African neighbours in the global switch to electric motoring, even as infrastructure shortcomings limit investments in the emerging sector. Both Kampala and Kigali have unveiled electric vehicle assembly plants in the past two months, blazing the regional trail with Kenya and Tanzania only making baby steps toward embracing the new technology. Uganda’s state-owned Kiira Motors Corporation has so far shown the biggest ambition in the region by building two battery-powered cars and a solar electric bus. The electric bus, called the Kayoola Electric Vehicle Series (EVS), has been built using Kiira Motors home-grown green mobility technologies while partnering with Chinese Equipment Manufacturer, Motor Co. Ltd. The buses can cover a distance of 300km under a single charge and have a capacity of 90 passengers (49 sitting and 41 standing), compared with the diesel engine ones which have a capacity of 65 passengers. Last year Uganda committed nearly Ush24 billion ($6.4 million) to put the first fully home-made car on the road. The amount is part of a planned Ush145 billion ($39 million) spending over four years, 2018 to 2022. In Rwanda, German automaker Volkswagen started assembling electric vehicles in Kigali in October this year, with the German power equipment firm Siemens planning to set up 15 charging stations in the Rwandan capital. This comes after a local Rwandan firm, Ampersand, started selling electric bikes powered by batteries that can last for about 75km of riding. East Africa’s uptake of electrical vehicles however remains extremely low compared to global leaders, according to Global EV Outlook report 2019. Lack of investment in charging infrastructure and absence of fiscal incentives such as subsidies and rebates on vehicle acquisition taxes, and lower toll or parking fees are to blame, the report launched by the International Energy Agency states. Measure It notes that scaling up of EV adoption in the region requires measures that provide incentives to increase the availability of vehicles with zero and low tailpipe emissions including massive investments in charging infrastructure installations on highways and in buildings. “We must address the issues of infrastructure and energy because these vehicles need energy and space for charging. The government should also consider tax incentives to attract investors and even buyers of electric vehicles,” said the Group chief executive of Nairobi-based motor dealer Simba Colt, Dinesh Kotecha, in an interview. In Kenya, Finnish firm EkoRent introduced a fully electric taxi dubbed Nopia Ride last year. The firm has installed five charging stations in three locations, including the Two Rivers Mall, the Hub Karen and Thika Road Mall. The Tanzanian government last year approved an initial roll-out of electric Safari vehicle at its flagship national park of Serengeti in an effort to reduce gas emissions. The Mount Kilimanjaro Safari Club became the first tour company in Tanzania to release a 100 per cent electric Safari cars in the region. Tanzania is reportedly seeking to power its electric cell driven vehicles through mass production of graphite minerals, with plans to build four of such factories in the country. In Ethiopia plans are underway for a local electric vehicle assembler—Tom Renewable Electric Bike Assembly & Sales—to start production in the country. The electric vehicles can go up to 40Km/h and are charged using standard 220v electric outlets. The vehicles take between four and six hours to get fully charged and can travel up to 60km on one charge. It is estimated that Ethiopia spends $3 billion annually to import fuel, pushing its annual spending up by 10 per cent. Japanese Firm Mitsui and Co. The company in April made a successful trial for a three-wheels electric car in Addis Ababa. The electric car called ‘E-trike ‘has five dedicated batteries, each with a capacity to go 80 kms with a single charge. The company has plans to establish an assembly plant in Ethiopia. Two decades ago, the world decided it was going electric and in 2009 a multi-governmental policy forum was established under the Clean Energy Ministerial to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles worldwide. The CEM consists of 24 nations and the EU, who together account for 90 per cent of all investment in clean energy in the world and 75 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Kenya takes up Nile Basin leadership

 Cache   

Kenya is now chair of the Nile Council of Ministers and will be led by Water Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelugui. Mr Chelugui takes over from Burundi’s Minister of Environment, Agriculture and Livestock, Dr Deo-Guide Rurema. The handover was done at a pre-conference in Nairobi on Wednesday, where the Council outlined an ambitious plan for the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI). Regional system On Friday, the Council of Ministers led by NBI Secretariat under the executive director of NBI Prof Seifeldin Hamad Abdalla launched the $5.5 million Nile Basin Regional Hydro-Met System that will enable NBI member states to share reliable data for monitoring of the Nile Basin resources as well as collect data to inform planning to prevent potential conflicts over the use of the Nile waters, said Mr Chelugui. The launch was attended by Water ministers from NBI member states, the Nile Technical Advisory Committee, stakeholders and civil society organisations. The Hydro-Met System project funded by the European Union and the government of Government, will include 79 hydrological monitoring stations, 322 meteorological monitoring stations and upgraded water quality laboratories. To-do list As the chair, Kenya will lead the initiative for a period of one year and is seeking to transform it into a co-operation like other basins around the world. “We want to transform it to a co-operation where equitable use of water resources is practised,” said Mr Chelugui. Top of the to-do list for Mr Chelugui is bringing back Egypt to the Initiative. Egypt left in 2010 to protest the signing of the Co-operative Framework Agreement (CFA) by some member countries, a pact that it was opposed to. Currently, six countries have signed the CFA—Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya and Burundi—of which only four—Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda — have ratified while Kenya is in the process of ratifying after signing it on May 19, this year. Ethiopia has already deposited the CFA with the African Union, while Sudan reviewed its position in 2010. “We intend to employ persuasion and diplomacy to bring back Egypt. We want to reach consensus and reconciliation on the issues which made the state leave,” Mr Chelugui added. Egypt, on the other hand, wants an alternative agreement which will allow other Nile Basin countries to do projects along the River Nile. The country still stands by the 1929 Nile Waters Agreement and the 1959 agreement between itself and Sudan. Other members of the NBI are South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Eritrea as an observer state. River Nile upstream countries have been pushing joint projects, and there is an interconnection and power generation project between Kenya and Uganda (Lessos-Tororo- Bujagali), which is expected to increase cross-border power trade and access to reliable and affordable energy and reduce operational costs, said Mr Chelugui.

Museveni: I won’t spare whoever attacks Uganda

 Cache   

President Museveni has said he will not spare anyone who tries to attack or mistreat Ugandans and Africans. Speaking at the commissioning the CCTV National Command and Control Centre in Kampala yesterday, the President said he considers all Ugandans and Africans part of his family and will even put his life on the line for them. “If you have love for the fatherland, it means all Ugandans are our family members. If you have got this in your head, you will not neglect your duties because you know that any attack any Ugandans is like attacking your child, sister and brother,” Mr Museveni said. “Some people don’t have that feeling. They feel that family members are those from the same woman. But to me, all Ugandans, all Africans are my family; that is why I will cause you a lot of problems. If you are near me and you kill, mistreat or rape an African woman, who is my muzukulu (grandchild), ofudde (you are dead). I can’t spare you,” he added. The President’s remarks left those in attendance puzzled on whether he was referring to the current high crime rate in Uganda or sending a message to external threats. Mr Museveni said defending Africans from oppression is what took him to Mozambique to join freedom fighters in 1968. “What was I looking for? There were no Banyankole. I was not going to greet agandi (a Runyankole greeting meaning how you are?); It is because Mozambicans are Africans and they were being oppressed,” he added. Mr Museveni has previously sent troops to the Democratic Republic of Congo (then Zaire), Sudan before the formation of South Sudan as an independent state and now Somalia. Uganda also helped rebels backed by Mr Paul Kagame to capture power in Rwanda following the 1994 genocide. The President said some people have attempted to discredit his National Resistance Movement party by killing high profile people in urban areas. “Yet security is my area, my constituency. That is my battle ground. If you want to challenge Uganda, you should look for another constituency. We are going to defeat these criminals. This is just the beginning,” he said. The Inspector General of Police, Mr Martins Okoth-Ochola, said CCTV cameras have improved policing in the country. “We have been able to improve of our 999 emergency system and we are now able to identify the location of distress calls in time. With camera and DNA profiling, the institution has registered tremendous success in tracing wanted persons and vehicles,” Mr Ochola said. The function was attended by, among others, Internal Affairs minister Obiga Kania, Security minister Elly Tumwine and Chief of Defence Forces David Muhoozi. By Daily Monitor

ED ally allays coup fears

 Cache   

President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s close ally and Gokwe-Nembudziya legislator Justice Mayor Wadyajena has vouched for Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga, saying the former army general, who toppled former President Robert Mugabe in a coup in November 2017, had no plans to stage another military takeover. BY MOSES MATENGA Addressing members of his constituency at the weekend, Wadyajena dismissed speculative reports that a coup was looming following Chiwenga’s return from a four-month long medical trip in China. The speculation was further fuelled by the absence of senior government officials to welcome Chiwenga at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport on November 23 and at his home-coming prayer meeting in Wedza at the weekend. “There were celebrations in the opposition that VP Chiwenga is back and ED is going. They said there is going to be a coup. Nothing like that will ever happen. The President and his deputy are brothers and it is President Mnangagwa who spoke to his Chinese counterpart (Xi Jinping) to have his deputy flown to China for treatment because they say he was poisoned,” Wadyajena said. Chiwenga’s detractors claimed the ex-army general was angry over recent purges on his loyalists in the party and military. Wadyajena said the narrative was being peddled by remnants of the G40 cabal to fan factionalism in the party. “We hear you got calls from some ministers saying you must not bring the presidential inputs here. Whoever is calling you is working against the President. That’s why youths say they are people targeting ED and Nicodemously, saying he must go and leave for a younger person. Leave to go where? The Constitution says he must serve for two terms,” he said. “Let us support the President and not work against him and sabotage him. Elections are in 2023, (so) let us not be in campaign mode.” Cotton Producers and Marketers Association chairperson Steward Mubonderi said Mnangagwa had taken the Cuban and Rwandan strategy to bust sanctions through boosting local crop production. “Today, Iraq and Libya are crying, they lacked vision and supported the killing of Sadam Hussein and Libyan leader Muammar Gadafi. They are now feeling the heat. It is disastrous to think of removing a leader now when we are under sanctions,” he said. “What is killing us is lack of production. We don’t remove sanctions by marching, we need production. We do not forsake our father because of hunger,” Mubonderi said.

L'Ontario se croit-elle plus blanche que blanche?

 Cache   

La méthode de dénigrement est très simple. Tu traites ceux qui ne pensent pas comme toi en les attaquant des pires insanités pour mieux les réduire au silence. Le meilleur moyen de les faire changer d’idée, lorsqu’ils prennent des décisions qui ne te plaisent pas, est de les traiter de racistes en leur faisant croire que le monde entier n’est pas d’accord avec leurs actions. Ce sont les méthodes des mauvais perdants qui n’acceptent pas le verdict de leur défaite. La loi 21 est protégée par la clause dérogatoire, une bébitte de la Constitution Canadienne, ne leur en déplaise. Qu’avez-vous pensé de la motion du gouvernement Ontarien pour dénoncer la loi 21 de la CAQ? Regardez qui veut nous faire la morale?

Texte de la motion déposée à Queens Park :

CONSIDÉRANT QUE toutes les personnes qui portent des symboles religieux, y compris des turbans, des hidjabs, des kippas, des crucifix et d’autres articles vestimentaires qui représentent des expressions de leur foi sont les bienvenues à servir le public ontarien;

CONSIDÉRANT QUE la discrimination sur la base de la religion est interdite par la Charte canadienne des droits et libertés;

CONSIDÉRANT QUE le Québec a adopté une mesure législative, la loi 21, qui interdit le port de symboles religieux et enfreint la Charte canadienne des droits et libertés;

CONSIDÉRANT QUE des groupes nationaux pour les droits civiques, y compris l’Association Canadienne des libertés civiles, le Conseil national des musulmans canadiens, le B’nai Brith Canada, l’Organisation mondiale des sikhs, l’Association du Barreau canadien, Amnistie internationale et le Centre consultatif des relations juives et israéliennes ont tous pris position contre la loi 21;

CONSIDÉRANT QUE plusieurs municipalités ontariennes, dont Mississauga, Brampton, la Municipalité régionale de Peel, ainsi que la Ville de Toronto, ont déjà adopté des motions qui condamnent la loi 21;

L’Assemblée législative de l’Ontario demande au gouvernement de l’Ontario de communiquer son opposition à la loi 21 en exigeant formellement que le gouvernement du Québec l’abroge immédiatement la loi et en intervenant dans toute contestation qui en viendrait à être entendue par la Cour suprême. Elle en déduit que cette loi sur la laïcité dans la fonction publique est discriminatoire.

Elle l’est, effectivement, par rapport aux valeurs multiculturalistes Canadiennes qui nous sont imposées et qui diffèrent des nôtres. Le Canada pense toujours individuel et le Québec pense collectif. Le Canada est anglophone et le Québec est francophone. Le Canada se dit sans identité, le Québec tient à la sienne. Le Canada ne pense qu’en fonction des pipelines, le Québec ne veut pas les laisser passer sur son territoire. Le Canada nous dit que les pipelines sont moins dangereux que les trains, mais le problème c’est que, même s’il y avait des pipelines qui traverseraient le Québec, les trains continueraient de passer quand même. L'alberta ne sortira jamais assez de pétrole à son goût. Nous sommes assez différents n’est-ce pas? En 1939, le Canada était pour la conscription et le Québec était contre. Le maire de Montréal à l’époque a été détenu pendant 4 ans pour avoir été contre. Que dire du sort des autochtones dans le Canada-Anglais! Le Québec ne les a jamais maltraité.

Le Québec n’a même pas signé la Constitution en 1982. Les cinq petites demandes de Meech nous ont été catégoriquement refusées. Cela nous a démontré que le Canada n’avait pas l’intention de nous intégrer, pas plus qu’il ne voulait nous voir partir. Pour les satisfaire, il faudrait que nous rampions devant eux en gardant le silence pour ne pas les déranger dans leur quiétude multiculturalisme. Les tribunaux Canadiens ne donneront jamais raison au Québec, parce qu’ils s’appuient sur leurs principes Canadiens fédéraux. C’est pour cela que le gouvernement Caquiste a appliqué la cause dérogatoire. La loi 101 était pour eux, discriminatoire.  Habituellement, ceux qui accusent les autres de racismes ont toujours des squelettes dans leurs garde-robes et c’est bien le cas ici, en ce qui concerne l’Ontario et le Canada-anglais.

Les médias anglophones nous détestent depuis des lunes. Ils adorent nous dénigrer et ne se gênent pas pour le faire. Ils se vantent d’être des gens qui acceptent les différences, et ils ne sont même pas capables d’accepter la nôtre. Nous parlons français et ils ne comprennent pas que nous voulions protéger notre identité dans cet mer anglophone. Belle gang de caves! Surtout quand nous entendons le premier ministre Trudeau dire qu’il n’y a plus d’identité au Canada. Le Québec est différent, que le Canada le veuille ou non. La loi 21 n’a rien de discriminatoire car un code vestimentaire ne l'est pas.  

L’Ontario est-elle vraiment bien placée pour nous faire la morale avec sa motion? Elle joue la carte de la blancheur absolue. Pourtant, les Ontariens se souviennent-ils d’un certain règlement 17 en 1912 contre le français en Ontario? N’était-ce pas discriminatoire envers les francophones Ontariens? N’était-ce pas raciste envers la race francophone? Voici ce règlement qui avait pour but d’assimiler tous les francophones de l’Ontario par la force.

Le règlement 17 était un règlement du ministère de l'Éducation de l'Ontario, adopté en 1912 par le gouvernement conservateur du Premier ministre sir James P. Whitney. Le règlement interdisait l'usage du français « comme langue d'enseignement et de communication » dans les écoles bilingues des réseaux publics et séparés. Le règlement a par la suite été abrogé en 1927 par le gouvernement de Howard Ferguson. Ce dernier était lui-même un opposant au bilinguisme, mais a abrogé cette loi parce qu'il avait besoin de former une alliance avec le Premier ministre du Québec de l'époque, Louis-Alexandre Taschereau, contre le gouvernement fédéral. Le gouvernement conservateur a, à contre-cœur, reconnu les écoles bilingues mais ce règlement 17 a détérioré les relations entre l'Ontario et le Québec pendant de nombreuses années et celui-ci est toujours un événement sombre dans la mémoire collective des Franco-Ontariens d'aujourd'hui.

Que penser du Globe and mail et de quelques autres journaux anglophones anti-Québec qui n’arrêtent pas de nous diaboliser pour tout et pour rien! Par exemple, ces médias laissent entendre que la loi 21 régit tout l’espace publique. C’est faux. Elle ne régit que la fonction publique. Les médias anglophones ne parlent jamais de la clause grand-père qui autorise ceux qui étaient déjà là, à garder leur signe religieux dans la fonction publique. Par contre, les nouveaux venus n’auront aucun passe-droit. Ils n’en parlent jamais dans leurs éditoriaux. Que dire du pourcentage acceptable des canadiens anglophones qui sont pour cette loi et qui ne le disent pas! Les médias anglophones ne leur laissent aucune place pour l’exprimer.

Les gens qui refusent de se défaire de leurs signes religieux pendant les heures de travail, aiment mieux perdre leurs emplois que de respecter la loi? WOW! Ils ont un sérieux problème, vous ne trouvez pas? Leur acharnement justifie, à lui seule, le bien-fondé de la loi 21. Celle-ci n’empêche personne de vivre sa religion dans l’espace publique au Québec, même si les médias anglophones essayent de faire croire le contraire. Elle n’empêche personne de s’habiller comme il le veut dans la rue. Les gens peuvent entrer dans les cabanes à sucre et se mettent à prier. Ils ont tous les droits. C’est ce qu’ils veulent aussi : avoir tous les droits. Les restrictions que nous leur imposons ne sont que pendant les heures de travail. S’il y a des codes vestimentaires dans la fonction publique, pourquoi n’y aurait-il pas des codes laïcs, lorsque vous travaillez en position d’autorité? Le but étant, non pas de discriminer, mais de respecter toutes les religions en n’en favorisant aucune, pendant les heures de travail. On appelle cela la neutralité de l’État.     

J’aimerais demander à mes amis Ontariens qu’est-ce qui est le plus discriminatoire entre les deux: demander à des gens d’enlever leurs signes religieux pendant leurs heures de travail ou d’empêcher les francophones de parler français avec des lois restrictives pour tenter de les assimiler de force? Qui fait de la discrimination? Ces gens ont-ils oublié les coupures de Doug Ford récemment? Nous n’avons pas de leçons à recevoir d’eux. Le gouvernement de la CAQ a été élu démocratiquement en promettant cette loi que nous réclamions à 75% d’approbation dans la population. Si les Canadiens ne sont pas contents, qu’ils nous laissent vivre nos valeurs qu’ils détestent et qu’ils se mêlent de leurs affaires. La loi 21 ne regarde que le Québec.

Les ennemis de la loi 21 dont le conseil Musulmans du Québec a parlé fort contre la loi et en anglais SVP. Ils étaient de retour en cour hier. « Nous sommes ici parce que nous avons promis que nous n’arrêterions pas de protéger cette province » a déclaré en anglais Mustapha Farooq du conseil National des musulmans Canadiens. Accompagné de plusieurs femmes portant le hijab, il tentait d’infirmer un jugement de la Cour Supérieur qui a refusé de suspendre la loi temporairement, le temps qu’un tribunal se penche sur le fond de l’affaire.    

Que pensent les Fatima Houda Pépin, Djemila Benhabib, Nadia El-Mabrouk, Leila Esbet qui sont musulmanes sans porter le voile, et qui sont pour la loi 21? Pourquoi ces musulmanes se battent-elles pour la laïcité? Ces femmes qui ont connues l’horreur de l’Islam radical s’évertuent à avertir les Québécois des dangers de cette intrusion idéologique malveillante qui essaie de minimiser le fait que, de se recouvrir le visage est un choix que la femme fait librement. Mais la loi 21 ne va même pas jusque-là. Elle restreint UNIQUEMENT les signes religieux pendant les heures de travail dans la fonction publique. Point final.

Les Thomas Mulcair, Dalila Awada, Eve Torres et Adil Charkaoui, avec l’appui massif du parti Québec-solidaire et du parti libéral démonisent la loi 21, dénonçant une islamophobie systémique au Québec. Même L’ONU a décrié la loi Québécoise en la traitant de discriminatoire. Elle peut bien parler l’ONU. Elle n’a pas de leçon à donner à personne. Pendant qu’elle regarde les Catalans subirent les affres d’un gouvernement anti-démocratique, elle ne fait rien pour supporter la démocratie. Pendant que l’Arabie Saoudite, le pays le plus terroriste au monde, a un siège en son sein, voilà que l’ONU a décidé que la loi sur la laïcité dans la fonction publique au Québec était pire que toutes les atrocités dans ces pays. L’ONU n’a pas voulu intervenir dans le massacre du Rwanda et c’est elle qui vient nous donner des leçons de moralité? Au moins, s’il y avait leçon à recevoir !

Le Québec s’est doté d’une loi sur la laïcité dans la fonction publique et les fervents défenseurs de la charte à Trudeau crient au meurtre. Les adeptes du port du voile Islamique nous critiquent en nous traitant de racistes. Qui veut la chicane ici? J’aurais tendance à leur dire que s’ils ne sont pas contents, ils n’ont qu’à déménager en Ontario. 

Les Québécois ont été sous l’emprise de l’Église catholique pendant des années et maintenant, ils ne veulent plus rien savoir des religions extrémistes, surtout pas de voir des gens en position d'autorité, étalés leurs croyances religieuses puisque l'État est laîque. Les femmes d’ici se sont battues pour leur égalité. Elles se sont battues pour légaliser l’avortement. Voilà qu’une catégorie de gens défend le voile Islamique, comme si c’était un choix personnel. Allons-nous attendre que l’idéologie Islamiste radical s’infiltre au gouvernement? Le voile islamique n’est pas une mode vestimentaire comme certains essayent de le faire croire. Il est le résultat d’un fanatisme Islamique qui n'a pour but que de dénigrer la femme. Pourtant, malgré l'aversion de ces gens,  ce voile peut être portée dans l’espace publique sans problème au Québec. Alors que les détracteurs de la loi 21 arrêtent de chialer! Leurs cris n’ont pour but que de continuer de faire avancer leur cause.

Je lisais le mot de Richard Martineau, la semaine dernière, qui parlait de 100 musulmans qui avait écrit un texte collectif en critiquant le port du voile Islamique. Ici les Thomas Mulcair de ce monde vont vous dire que ces musulmans sont sûrement des imbéciles. Aucun moyen de parler à ces gens puisqu’ils savent qu’ils ont tort, mais ne l’avoueront jamais. Ils vont vous couper la parole en vous traitant comme si vous étiez le pire des Nazis. Mulcair a même dit, à l’émission ‘’La joute’’ que le Québec avait un passé discriminatoire. Il se croyait sûrement en Ontario. Nous n’avons pas de leçons à recevoir des Canadiens de ce genre qui ne sont pas capables de voir que la loi 21 n’est pas un glaive, mais un bouclier qui nous protège minimalement contre cet extrémisme islamique qui prend de plus en plus de place dans notre société. À voir la réaction des médias anglophones et de certains politiciens qui croient que le multiculturalisme est une bible vivante, nous réalisons que la loi 21 avait sa raison d’être. Si le Canada anglais crie si fort contre la loi 21, c’est qu’il a perdu contre le Québec et qu’il est un très mauvais perdant. Le gouvernement s’est servi de la clause dérogatoire parce qu’ils savaient que ça ne passerait pas le test des tribunaux Canadiens. Comme disait Duplessis :  La cour suprême penche toujours du même bord!

En passant, les femmes qui sont touchées par la loi 21 en éducation, par exemple, n’ont qu’à enlever leur signe religieux pendant les heures de travail et elles pourront continuer de travailler. Qu’elles arrêtent de dire que c’est la loi qui les empêche de travailler. C’est leur décision. Si un employé de l’État n’a pas le droit d’étaler ses convictions politiques pendant ses heures de travail, pourquoi aurait-il plus le droit d’étaler ses signes religieux? Le Québec et le Canada ne seront jamais sur la même longueur d’onde. Nous sommes différents et ils refusent de reconnaître notre différence. Qu’ils nous laissent partir et ils n’auront plus ce problème sur les bras.   

 

 


          

ADORATION with Evangelist Mac & featuring Myra McIlwain Reflections From Africa

 Cache   
During the month of October into early November, Evangelist Mac, his wife Myra, Africa Needs U Executive Director Rev. Paul Taiwo and Mitchell Loxton of Loxton Construction traveled to Kigali, Rwanda as part of an effort through Thirst No More Corporation to expand on a smart classroom/primary and secondary school/recreational center with a partnering organization called Trinitas Group LTD. This same group also ventured into Kinshasa, DR Congo to support Parole de Verite Church and the ministry of Pastor Eric Mavinga MASAILA. Our program this month will find Evangelist Mac and Myra reflecting on their time and experiences on the mission field. We will discuss the 25th year anniversary of the terrible genocide that took place in Rwanda between rivaling tribes (Tsutsi's and Hutu's). We will share our own impressions of the weight of losing over 800,000 lives and how we can see hope in the aftermath of such devastation. We will also share our feelings concerning the ministry in DR Congo and how Pastor Mavinga has galvanized his people to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

During the ongoing Global Gender Summit (November 25-27, 2019) in Kigali, Rwanda, Nigerian banking Group UBA promised to increase credits granted to female small and medium business owners in Cameroon. This increase, according to the group falls within the framework of the launch of AFAWA, a fund dedicated to women in Africa.

The risk will be shared with other partners [AfDB, Ecobank, Attijariwafa, African Guarantee Fund]. We will, therefore, be able to give more credits. By asking for fewer guarantees, we will be very creative and will explore financing opportunities based on companies’ cash flow rather than depending solely on the guarantees (...). There will be a 50% increase in credits within a year,” UBA Group’s representative Babatunde Ajayi (photo) explained.  “If for instance, we give about $20 million loans a year, we want to increase it to at least $30 million the following year and $40 million the year after,” he added.

Mr Ajayi also explained the mechanism for granting and repaying these loans: “You must review the cash flow and economic cycle of the projects to be financed. That is how we decide and ...

          

28.04.2020, Dibattito sul divano verde

 Cache   
Il processo di integrazione europea, nato allo scopo di pacificare un continente dilaniato dalle guerre, ha dovuto misurarsi, nel corso della sua evoluzione, con il proprio posizionamento rispetto ai conflitti. Questo equilibrismo fra la necessità di superare un passato bellico ingombrante e le ragioni del pragmatismo politico, è divenuto ancora più precario con il ruolo che l’Unione Europea ha assunto nella difesa dei diritti umani.
Negli stessi anni in cui il Trattato di Maastricht introduceva i diritti fondamentali nell’ordinamento giuridico dell’Unione, si consumava la guerra nei Balcani: un conflitto che, per le dimensioni delle atrocità perpetrate, ha messo in crisi le basi stesse del processo di integrazione.

6 Wickets, 0 Runs: Nepal's Anjali Chand's Incredible Bowling Figures Against Maldives In T20I

POKAHRA — Nepal’s Anjali Chand on Monday scripted history by producing the best bowling performance in a women’s T20 Internationals with figures of 6/0 in a match against Maldives at the 13th South Asian Games.

This is the first time ever a bowler has taken six wickets for no run in any international match.

Nepal won the match by 10 wickets, reaching 17 for no loss in 0.5 overs.

Earlier, the record belonged to Malaysian Mas Elysa, who had claimed six wickets for three runs from her 4 overs against China in January this year.

For the latest news and more, follow HuffPost India on TwitterFacebook, and subscribe to our newsletter.

The 24-year-old Anjali dismissed six batswomen — all for nought — in 2.1 overs as Nepal bowled out Maldives, who elected to bat, for just 16 runs from 10.1 overs.

Anjali’s team-mate, Karuna Bhandari (2/4) took two wickets, while two batters were run out.

Eight Maldives batters got out without opening their account, while two made single-digit scores.

In reply, Nepal chased down the target in just five deliveries, reaching 17 for no loss.

Opener Kajal Shrestha remained not out on 13 while there were four extras (2 wide, 1 leg bye and 1 no ball).

The run chase lasted just seven deliveries, of which five were legal.

After the match, Cricket Nepal tweeted: “Nepal’s Anjali Chand bowling figure is best bowling figure in Women T20I surpassing Malaysian Mas Elysa’s 6/3. Also best bowling in debut.

“Nepal’s victory in 5 balls, however, is not the quickest victory as Rwanda and Tanzania had defeated Mali in 4 balls in July 2019.”

Tanzania: Withdrawal of individual rights to African Court will deepen repression

 Cache   
The Tanzanian government has withdrawn the right of individuals and NGOs to directly file cases against it at the Arusha-based African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights, Amnesty International has established. This withdrawal of rights will rob people and organisations in Tanzania a vital avenue to justice, in a country whose justice system is deeply flawed. “This move effectively blocks individuals and NGOs in the country from directly going to the court to seek redress for human rights violations in what is clearly a cynical attempt to evade accountability,” Japhet Biegon, Amnesty International’s Africa Advocacy Coordinator said. “This is yet more evidence of the government of Tanzania’s growing hostility towards human rights and human rights defenders. It undermines the authority and legitimacy of the African Court and is an outright betrayal of efforts in Africa to establish strong and credible regional human rights bodies that can deliver justice and accountability.” Tanzania becomes the second country after Rwanda to withdraw the right of individuals and NGOs to directly access the African Court, a vital continental judicial body in the face of state interference in national justice systems. The government of Tanzania has the highest number of cases filed by individuals and NGOs as well as judgments issued against it by the African Court. Out of the 70 decisions issued by the court by September 2019, 28 decisions, or 40 percent, were on Tanzania. Similarly, most of the cases still pending before the African Court are against Tanzania, a huge number of them on alleged violations of the right to fair trial, pointing to a systemic problem in the Tanzanian justice system. Most recently, on 28 November, the African Court ruled that a section of the Tanzanian penal code which provides for mandatory death sentence in capital offences not only violates the right to fair trial and undermines judicial independence, but also the right to life. “The many cases filed against Tanzania at the African Court speak to the abject failure by the country to provide victims of human rights violations adequate and effective remedies nationally, said Japhet Biegon. “As the host of the African Court, Tanzania should lead by example and reconsider the decision to withdraw its declaration, demonstrating its support and commitment to the success of the court. It must also strengthen its own justice system to ensure victims of human rights violations can access justice at the national level.” Background The Tanzanian Minister of Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation, Prof Palamagamba Kabudi, signed the notice of withdrawal of the declaration made under Article 34(6) of the African Court Protocol on 14 November 2019. This notification was sent to the African Union on 21 November. Tanzania’s decision to withdraw its Article 34(6) declaration comes barely a month after Amnesty International released a report detailing a spike in repression in the country under President John Magufuli.
