Woman who saved hubby from crocodile gets award

A Namibian woman who fought off a crocodile that was attacking her husband has been awarded a police prize for “extraordinary” bravery.

“Men must see how prepared our women are to save us from danger,” Kavango East governor Samuel Mbambo was quoted as saying at a ceremony to hand over a trophy to Elizabeth Shintangu, 29.

Mbambo added: “I am not saying jump in the river and fight a crocodile, but the fact is that she did it without thinking twice”

Shintangu says she told hubby Matheus Kativa not to go for a bath in the Kavango River on the day of the attack in February last year “but he insisted,” reports The Namibian.

She went along with him to do the laundry and then she heard him scream.

“The water was all red with blood. I then saw his face as he waved goodbye. I swam fast after them, and held his left hand and started pulling him back. Part of his right hand was still in the reptile’s mouth,” she was quoted as saying.

At the ceremony, Shintangu’s husband said that “all women are brave but they just wait for the right moment”, the paper added.

The New Era reported last month that a crocodile had killed a 28-year-old woman in Divundu, also in the Kavango East region.

Abiy Ahmed wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Award

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.

Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.

“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”

It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”

The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
