Latest Updates

  1. Porters 'warming food' may have caused Kilimanjaro fire

    The authorities in Tanzania suspect that porters who were warming food for a group of mountain climbers may have accidentally started a fire that broke out on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.

    The dry vegetation at the Whona area, a rest centre, quickly caught fire leading to the huge blaze, according to Tanzania National Parks official Pascal Shelutete.

    "The fire is under control and we are ensuring that climbing activities are not affected," Mr Shelutete said.

    Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, is a popular tourist destination and tens of thousands of people climb it every year.

    Mwananchi news site has shared a video of Mr Shelutete speaking to journalists in Swahili.

    Protesters in Nigeria's southern state of Rivers are marching to the government house in the state capital, Port Harcourt, in defiance of the governor who banned all forms of protests.

    Governor Nyesom Wike had on Monday said that there was no need for the #EndSARS protests after demonstrations continued in other parts of the country despite authorities disbanding the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (Sars), which was notorious for unlawful arrests and murder.

    "Law enforcement agencies are also directed to ensure that the ban is enforced and that violators are brought to book," his spokesperson Paulinus Nsirim said in a statement posted on Twitter.

    But despite heavy police presence, protesters still turned up at the Pleasure Park - their agreed venue on the outskirts of the city from where they started marching along a main road.

    One of the protesters, Gospel Orji, told the BBC that they were headed to government house to speak to the governor about his pronouncement.

    "This is no longer a protest, it is a movement," he said.

    "We are going to show them that power belongs to the people," he said.

    Demonstrations are also ongoing in several other states in the country despite assurances on Monday by President Muhammadu Buhari that the disbandment of Sars was the first step in reforming the police.

    On the same day, a civilian and a police officer were killed in the commercial capital, Lagos, casting doubts on the sincerity of authorities to end police brutality.

    The cities where demonstrations are now taking place are:

    • Port Harcourt
    • Aba
    • Enugu
    • Ibadan
    • Lagos
    • Jos
    • Abuja

    Protesters want authorities to arrest and prosecute police officers who have been involved in the deaths and harassment of citizens since the demonstrations started last week, as a show of seriousness about police reforms.

  5. Video of schoolgirls being 'disinfected' angers Kenyans

    A video showing schoolgirls queuing to be sprayed as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus has divided Kenyans online.

    The 30 - second clip uploaded on Twitter by a local newspaper shows a man wearing protective clothing spraying a substance on the girls' exposed hands, legs and uniforms.

    The World Health Organization does not recommend the spraying of individuals and says it could be "physically and psychologically harmful".

    Schools in Kenya reopened on Monday for final year students with guidelines to provide sanitisation and handwashing facilities and ensure social distancing to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

    Kenyans on Twitter expressed mixed reactions to the spraying of students.

    "Such things and spray booths were banned by the ministry of health How did adults sit down and decided that spraying children like this contains #Covid19? What happened to running water and soap?" Dr Mercy Korir tweeted.

    "Then from next day we have skin issues, chest congestion ,asthma flare ups all in the excuse of money. Parents had to pay for their children to be sprayed like cows," Phill Kamara tweeted.

    "I don't see any problem with this activity.. How would you expect them to be disinfected? .. Some of u are just rebellious just for the sake of it . smh," Denno Duevshi tweeted.
