Nigerian doctors go on indefinite strike

The doctors say the government has shown 'serious insincerity' in previous negotiations
There’s yet another doctors’ strike in Nigeria, demanding protective clothing, as well as life insurance.  Fourteen doctors have died while treating Covid patients.  

The doctors - from the National Association of Resident Doctors - previously went on a week-long strike in June, but then, doctors treating coronavirus patients remained on the job. This time, however, the union says there will be no exceptions and that the strike will be indefinite, because the government has broken its previous promise to provide adequate PPE.  

The former president of the doctors’ association is Dr Olusegun Olaopa. 

"We are very much aware this will have a very serious, long term affect not only on the hospital and operations - but it will also have an affect on the patients that visit the hospital... It was a really tough decision for us to make."

Volcano warning from experts in DR Congo

A new survey of an active volcano in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo suggests there may be an eruption in the next four to seven years.

More than two million people live around Mount Nyiragongo, and the cities of Goma and Gisenyi sit between the volcano and Lake Kivu.

Rapid expansion in Goma means many people now live right next to fissures in the flank of the volcano through which any eruption would likely occur, says Goma Volcano Observatory Director Katcho Karume.

ANC slams 'divisive, misogynistic' Trump

Nelson Mandela was South Africa's first black president

South Africa's governing African National Congress (ANC) has condemned Donald Trump after his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen alleged that the US president had made disparaging remarks about anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela.

"Trump is a divisive, misogynistic and disrespectful person ever to occupy the office of the President," the ANC said.

In contrast, Mr Mandela had stood as a unifying leader, who "reached out to the world and sought to bring peace and a just society", the party added.

Mr Mandela was a leader of the ANC and spent more than 27 years in prison for fighting minority rule in South Africa.

He became the country's first black president in 1994, about four years after his release from prison and promoted reconciliation with the minority white population.

He stepped down as president in 1999, and died in 2013 aged 95.

In his new book, Disloyal: A Memoir, Mr Cohen said Mr Trump had described Mr Mandela as "no leader"

"Tell me one country run by a black person that isn't a shithole. They are all complete [expletive] toilets," Mr Trump once said, according to Cohen.

Earlier, the Nelson Mandela Foundation said: "We do not believe that leaders who conduct themselves in the way Mr Trump does are in a position to offer authoritative commentary on the life and work of Madiba."
