Safari hii ni mwanamke amekamatwa na silaha nje ya Ikulu

Mwanamke mmojamwenyeji wa Michigani amekamatwa nje ya Ikulu ya Marekani (White House) akiwa na bunduki muda mfupi tu baada ya Rais wa nchi hiyo, Barack Obama kuhutubia taifa akielezea sera na mpango wake kuhusu wahamiaji nchini humo.

Maafisa wa usalama walitaarifu kuwa mwanamke huyo aliyetambuliwa kwa jina la April Lenhart (miaka 23) mkazi wa Mount Morris, Michigan alikamatwa mwendo wa saa mbili u nusu usiku siku ya Alhamisi.

Alikuwa anashiriki kwenye maandamano na watu wengine kaskazini mwa uzio wa Ikulu kabla ya kukamatwa na maafisa walioiona silaha hiyo (hand gun) aliyokuwa ameiweka sehemu ya mbele ya paja lake.

Sasa hivi anashikiliwa kwa makosa ya kumiliki silaha isiyosajiliwa na kubeba bastola bila leseni.

WHO Disease outbreak! Plague – Madagascar

On 4 November 2014, WHO was notified by the Ministry of Health of Madagascar of an outbreak of plague. The first case, a male from Soamahatamana village in the district of Tsiroanomandidy, was identified on 31 August. The patient died on 3 September.

As of 16 November, a total of 119 cases of plague have been confirmed, including 40 deaths. Only 2% of reported cases are of the pneumonic form.

Cases have been reported in 16 districts of seven regions. Antananarivo, the capital and largest city in Madagascar, has also been affected with 2 recorded cases of plague, including 1 death. There is now a risk of a rapid spread of the disease due to the city’s high population density and the weakness of the healthcare system. The situation is further complicated by the high level of resistance to deltamethrin (an insecticide used to control fleas) that has been observed in the country.

Public health response

The national task force has been activated to manage the outbreak. With support from partners –

Ifuatayo  ni ufafanuzi wa hali halisi kinyume na Waziri alivyodanganya Dunia kupitia BBC tarehe 19/11/2014 na Gazeti la leo la Mwananchi

  1. Kwamba eneo la Loliondo halina Wamaasai 40,000 watakaoadhirika endapo Serikali itatoa tamko Wakati  wowote sasa:
Jibu: Idadi ya wakazi katika eneo la km za mraba 1,500 ambavyo ni vijiji vya Ololosokwan, Soitsambu, Oloipiri, Arash, Maaloni, Olorien/Magaiduru, Piyaya na Malambo ambavyo vina jumla ya wakaazi 57,532. Kwa mujibu wa sensa ya Taifa ya watu na Makazi ya 2012 kama ilivyo kwenye jedwali hapa chini.
