    In the past 18 months military leaders have toppled the governments of Mali, Chad, Guinea, Sudan and now, Burkina Faso. West African leaders on Friday called an emergency summit on the situation in Burkina Faso, where the new military leader, Lieutenant Colonel Paul-Henri Damiba, told the nation in his first public address that he would return the country to constitutional order “when the conditions are right.” The resurgence ofcoups has alarmed the region’s remaining civilian leaders. Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo said on Friday, “It represents a threat to peace, security and stability in West-Africa.” First came Mali, in August 2020....
  • Debilitating Human Parasite – Worms That Grow Up to 3 Feet Long in the Body – Transmitted via Dogs Eating Fish

    A Guinea worm emerging from a dog’s leg. Credit: Jared Wilson-Aggarwal Efforts to eradicate a human parasitic disease are being hampered by dogs eating infected fish, new research shows. Guinea worm disease is usually caught by drinking water containing water fleas that carry the parasite larvae. The worms mate and grow inside the body, and after 10-14 months the one-meter-long adult worm emerges, usually from the arms or legs, to shed its larvae back into water. The parasite causes disability and trauma in some of the world’s poorest communities in Chad, Ethiopia, Mali, and South Sudan. Eradication programs have cut...

    BATA, Equatorial Guinea—Classified American intelligence reports suggest China intends to establish its first permanent military presence on the Atlantic Ocean in the tiny Central African country of Equatorial Guinea, according to U.S. officials. The officials declined to describe details of the secret intelligence findings. But they said the reports raise the prospect that Chinese warships would be able to rearm and refit opposite the East Coast of the U.S.—a threat that is setting off alarm bells at the White House and Pentagon. Principal deputy U.S. national security adviser Jon Finer visited Equatorial Guinea in October on a mission to persuade...

    Guinean soldiers said they had overthrown president Alpha Condé in an apparent military coup, less than a year after he won a controversial third term in the mineral-rich west African country. A group of armed men appeared on state television on Sunday dressed in fatigues and draped in national flags, declaring that Guineans were being mistreated by the country’s elites. “We are capable of taking our destiny in our own hands,” one of the soldiers said in the state TV broadcast, adding that the constitution would be dissolved and the borders closed for one week. But Guinea’s defence ministry said...

    WHILE we are all applauding the roll-out of the various vaccines for Covid-19, it is time to take stock of well, stocks. The supply of the vaccine has been sparse - not just in Canada, but around the world. Stock prices for the few companies which have been able to rush through the emergency approvals for their respective vaccines have soared while the pandemic has killed millions, put hundreds of millions out of work, and reset all our lives. It may come to pass that in order to travel in years to come, we may need a different array of...

    An Ebola outbreak now occurring in Guinea was almost certainly started by someone who survived West Africa’s historic 2014-16 epidemic, harbored the virus for at least five years and then transmitted it via semen to a sex partner, researchers reported on Friday. The current outbreak in Guinea was first recognized in January and has infected at least 18 people and killed nine."(Emphasis Mine) "West Africa’s previous epidemic infected more than 28,000 people, killed more than 11,000 and left thousands of survivors, some of whom were already being shunned because of fears about the disease.

    CONAKRY (Reuters) - The World Health Organization has asked six African countries to be alert for possible Ebola infections, as Guinea on Tuesday reported new cases and Democratic Republic of Congo said its new infections were a resurgence of a previous outbreak. Guinea declared an outbreak of the virus on Sunday in the first return of the disease there since the 2013-2016 outbreak, while Congo has confirmed four new cases this month. Health authorities have rushed to respond to the cases in Guinea, anxious to prevent a repeat of the last outbreak in West Africa, which killed more than 11,300...

    Two days of communal clashes in southeast Guinea have left at least 11 people dead and more than 40 wounded, officials said Sunday. The violence between mostly Muslim Tomas Mania and mostly animist Tomas was sparked Saturday by the unveiling of a new house for the Tomas patriarch in the town of Macenta, local sources told AFP. Police reinforcements from neighbouring towns failed to stop the fighting Sunday and several of their number had been injured, a prefectural source said. Witnesses said many residents had fled and taken shelter in the surrounding forest. Eleven corpses were brought to the local...

    Potential Future Pope Condemns Sri Lanka Attacks as ‘Barbaric Islamist Violence’ It is a rare display of honesty from a high ranking Catholic official. A Catholic cardinal considered by many to be a candidate to become the next Pope has condemned the terrorist attack in Sri Lanka as “barbaric Islamist violence” after at least 290 Christians were murdered during worship on Easter Sunday. Cardinal Robert Sarah of Guinea condemned the attacks in Sri Lanka on Twitter, writing that it illustrates “how the followers of Christ are all over the world the victims of wild and foolish deeds,” and adding, “I...

    A bizarre feature of BSGR's suit in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York against George Soros for 'puppeteeing' in Guinea, is that the sovereign state of Guinea has no standing for the action to be brought in its own national courts.   It is just presumed in the business press that Guinea's dependent standing is to be an economic-colonial subject of foreign courts, in the broader context of one-world multi-nationalism.   African countries can only have children at the pleasure of population controllers in the first world.   They can only write their own laws regulating...

    PARIS (Reuters) - Italy on Saturday said “arrogant” France risked becoming its “No.1 enemy” on migration issues, a day before European leaders convene in Brussels for a hastily arranged meeting on the divisive topic. In answer to comments by French President Emmanuel Macron, who said migration flows toward Europe had reduced compared with a few years ago, Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio said Macron’s words showed he was out of touch. “Italy indeed faces a migration emergency and it’s partly because France keeps pushing back people at the border. Macron risks making his country Italy’s No.1 enemy on...
