Another historical discovery in Tanzania: Rukwanyoka holmani - Oldest fossil evidence of modern African venomous snakes

Ohio University scientists have found the oldest definitive fossil evidence of modern, venomous snakes in Africa, according to a new study published March 19 in the journal PLOS ONE. The newly discovered fossils demonstrate that elapid snakes -- such as cobras, kraits and sea snakes -- were present in Africa as early as 25 million years ago, said lead author Jacob McCartney, a postdoctoral researcher in the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine. He's part of a team that has been examining the Rukwa Rift Basin of Tanzania over the last decade to understand environmental change through time in the East African Rift System.

Elapids belong to a larger group of snakes known as colubroids, active foragers that use a variety of methods, including venom, to capture and kill prey.

Colubroid fossils are documented as early as 50 million years ago. But

High Court in Tanzania blocks $75m IPTL pay

The High Court yesterday granted an injunction barring the withdrawal of $75 million (Sh121 billion) escrow monies paid to VIP Engineering and Marketing, a local company that had at one time owned 30 per cent of the Independent Power Tanzania Limited (IPTL).

Liquidators of the IPTL’s majority shareholders, Mechmar of Malaysia, through their lawyers, IMMMA Advocates, have filed an application at the High Court seeking an injunction to stop the withdrawal and use of the $75 million paid to VIP Engineering and Marketing in January this year. High Court Judge Fauz Twaib gave the order after the plaintiff—Mechmar, currently in liquidation, filed a suit together with an application for injunction on March 17, 2014.

In the main suit, Mechmar is seeking orders against VIP Engineering and IPTL for payment of contractual and damages of $52.5 million which is 70 per cent of $75 million, the total value of the IPTL asset which has been extracted from the company in breach of the Articles of Association.

The plaintiff also wants contractual damages of reduction value of the plaintiff shares in the company valued at $175 million.

In addition to the suit, the plaintiff filed an application for injunction for orders to “restrain VIP Engineering or any person pursuant to the order control for instructions from taking possession of exercising beneficial and/or legal right.”

The case came for hearing on Wednesday, this week, before the ruling was issued yesterday in favour of Mechmar, hence introducing a new twist in the IPTL sale saga.
