Tanzania police set to resist anti-government protesters.

Published

Tanzania police have arrested two people in connection with anti-government protests planned for April 26. The police also dismissed that the country was under authoritarian leadership.

Police chief in the city of Dodoma, Gilles Muroto paraded the two people, a farmer and driver, for calling on citizens to protest against the president, John Pombe Magufuli.

“These two people here were inciting others to protest on 26 April, saying on social media that there is no freedom [in Tanzania], that there is a dictatorship, which is totally false,” Muroto said.

He went on to caution that people who defied no-protest orders risk ending up with “a broken leg” and going hone as cripples. The protests were called by an opposition activist against the political climate in the country.

Addressing a public gathering in northwestern Tanzania weeks ago, Magufuli dared the protesters to go ahead with their plans. ““Some people have failed to engage in legitimate politics; they would like to see street protests everyday…Let them demonstrate and they will see who I am.

“We want to build a strong economy for all Tanzanians and we are on the right track. Let us be patient, Tanzania will become a land of honey,” the president added.

A U.S.-based Tanzanian social media activist, Mange Kimambi, is behind the call for a nationwide anti-government demonstration on April 26 to protest over a shrinking of political freedoms and human rights abuses back home.

Kimambi, who has a large youth following on social media, is rallying Tanzanians via Telegram chat groups to take to the streets after previous demonstrations called by the main opposition CHADEMA party in 2016 were called off.

In Tanzania, anyone wanting to stage a demonstration must inform police and receive a permit from them. Police have declared the Kimambi-led protest illegal and an act of treason.

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

on

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
