  • Macron, Kenyatta address UN Environment meeting in Kenya

    The French President and his Kenyan counterpart have backed calls by scientists to urgently address some of the serious environmental issues the world over.


    Addressing the 4th session of the United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Emmanuel Macron said the world can no longer be in a state of denial when the opportunity to reshape the future of the planet is now.


    He he called on countries to invest in renewable forms of energy in order to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels.


    Current global statistics are indeed quite sobering and projections for the future generations are dire and demand urgent action by governments, communities, business and individuals.


    ‘‘We know that the agenda that we have is essential and perhaps even more now because the United Nations has placed it at the heart of its own agenda and as I said earlier, the observations have been made a long time ago. Many heads of states and governments well before me or sometimes decades earlier have denounced scientists and the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) which said recently that we are not even on course on the Paris Agreement’‘, Macron said

    The presidency said the FIDH team was led by Mr. Palu Sapu. Photos showed Sapu and his delegation members in exchanges with President Tshisekedi.


    The human rights situation in the country had deteriorated considerably at the time Tshisekedi took over from Joseph Kabila in January following presidential polls in December 2018.


    Human rights groups especially the FIDH had routinely called on Kinshasa to desist from using force to clampdown on protests.


    Under Kabila, police used tear gas and in some cases live bullets against anti-government rallies. Tshisekedi has since promised to right all wrongs that have long been publicised.

  • DRC: 260,000 children severely malnourished- UNICEF

    Democratic Republic Of Congo
    In the corridors of the Kasai nutritional centre in the Democratic Republic of Congo, mothers and their children wait for doctors to take care of them.


    Susan and her daughter, Rosette escaped conflict in the Kasai region to find shelter in Kikwit in the country’s southwest. But, like thousands of other displaced people, she is desperate for help to feed her child.


    “My daughter is malnourished and I have no money to feed her. She started to eat sand because she was so hungry. Now her belly is swollen. I can’t get my daughter medication and have no way of treating her. I’ve got nothing. I’m begging you to help me”, Susan said.


    I can't get my daughter medication and have no way of treating her. I've got nothing. I'm begging you to help me.


    Rosette passed away after this story was filmed.


    Baleka Mado came with her four-year-old son Kanu, who is one of 260,000 children who, according to UNICEF, suffer from severe malnutrition. Insecurity means families cannot farm crops or earn money to buy food in the region.


    “When we left the bush, it was because of hunger and suffering. When we found a village to rest in, I was told about this hospital where children could receive free medical care and food’‘, Mado said.
