Over 80,000 People have fled violence in DRC

More than 80,000 people have fled their homes in Pool province surrounding Congo Republic’s capital since the government began a military operation there last year, a joint U.N. and government statement said.

The campaign, involving occasional aerial bombardments, aims to curb what the government says is a resurgent rebellion led by Pastor Ntumi, an enemy of President Denis Sassou Nguesso from the oil-rich country’s 1997 civil war.

While it has been hard to confirm death tolls and the impact on residents, any clear evidence of escalating violence could be damaging to Sassou Nguesso’s ruling party, the Congolese Party of Labour, ahead of legislative elections next month.

The United Nations is seeking around $20 million in emergency funding to provide humanitarian assistance in the province, after a recent visit found widespread signs malnutrition, the statement released late on Friday said.

Many of the displaced remain beyond the reach of aid workers, it added.

“In non-accessible zones… there is reason to fear an even more complicated situation as the number of (displaced) continues to increase and living conditions worsen more every day.”

East Libyan Forces Claim Control Of Central Benghazi Neighbourhood

East Libyan Forces Claim Control Of Central Benghazi Neighbourhood

East Libyan forces said they had gained control on Saturday over one of two remaining districts of Benghazi where they faced armed resistance.

The advance in the central Souq al-Hout neighbourhood was the latest step in the slow progress of the self-styled Libyan National Army commanded by Khalifa Haftar, which has been waging a campaign against Islamists and other opponents in Libya’s second city for more than three years.

In unusually heavy fighting in Benghazi over the past two days at least 13 men from the LNA were killed and 37 wounded, a medical official said. Many of those who died were killed by land mines, a military source said.

Along with Sabri, Souq al-Hout was one of the final holdouts of the LNA’s rivals.

Since 2014, shifting alliances have been battling for power. The LNA and an eastern-based government have rejected a U.N.-backed government that has been in the capital, Tripoli, since last year.

Saturday’s advance came after the Benghazi Defence Brigades (BDB), an anti-Haftar armed group that includes fighters who retreated from Benghazi and have since tried and failed to advance again towards the city, said it was prepared to disband and be integrated into national security forces.

Lwengo's Mutabazi kicked off RwandAir flight Ads (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lwengo LCV Chairman, George Mutabazi, was kicked off a RwandAir flight that was heading to Entebbe from Kigali. In a 14-second-video that has emerged, Mutabazi who is clad in a pink shirt and a navy blue suit is seen being dragged off the plane while yelling on top of his voice;

"Woowee....Why do you do this to me, I'm a leader, What have I done, Do I deserve this, Do I deserve this really, why is this happening to me, what have I done...." But the two cops that held him by his trousers with his feet barely touching the plane corridor did not entertain his pleas, he was thrown off the plane.

Flight attendants found him to be too drunk and therefore, unfit to travel as he could be a nuisance to other passengers.

It was a dramatic moment for the Lwengo residents who landed on the clip. Mutabazi is on record for having unleashed several strokes of the cane to Lwengo residents who he found either taking alcohol during working hours or were idle and disorderly.

He also does not entertain grass thatched houses in his area. These and many more is what is best known of The national association of local governments president, George Mutabazi.

In a typical movie style of a star who never dies, George Mutabazi has come out to defend his actions;

"I happened to have travelled to Bujumbura Burundi for a two day's conference organized by the Secretary General's Assembly on East African Communities..I travelled via Kigali and on my way back I had 5 hour delay of transit and I walked out of the airport and came back and checked in for my ebb flight in time..."

"While on the plane, there was a problem of mistaken Indentity, I was asked to get off the plane, I questioned why, so there was a scuffle, so I made an alarm because I didn't know where I was going, so I had to attract the attention of my fellow passengers so that if anything happened to me, they would know, but on talking to security officials they realized there was no problem. Whatever is on social media, please igone, and thanks to all those who have showed their concern."

Guinea’s President Criticises Foreign Countries’ Interference in AU Matters

The President of Guinea Alpha Conde has urged African leaders to continue taking charge about issues that affect their countries and the continent and stop taking foreign funding in the African Union.

President Condé now on a two-day State visit to Uganda is a man on a mission with a message that is galvanizing hope by Africans to reclaim the right of the continents destiny back in their hands.

He said African leaders need to speak openly and frankly so that when Africa speaks, it does so with one voice that is heard.

“We need to take charge of our own affairs. When we are united, we win. You don’t have to be super intelligence to know that the problem faced by Africa is interference in its affairs. We need to use our own resources to fund our organization (AU) ourselves. Currently our main funding is by the European Union. How can you speak freely if you are funded by someone else,” he said.

He is also advocating for a continental court instead of having African issues dealt with by the International Criminal Court.

He said as the AU they can no longer accept for a country to be isolated.

“Three weeks ago I was in Sudan to show support of AU to Bashir. Is it an International Criminal Court or is it a court against Africans,” he said.
