Pregnant school girls arrested along with parents & the men who impregnate them well
- The Tanzanian government is on a campaign to rid schools of pregnant girls. Even after putting to bed, these young girls are still exiled from pursuing an education in Tanzania.
- Not only does this basically continue the poverty cycle but the law seems to be unequally balanced; with the young girls being vilified. So it makes us wonder;
Does President John Magufuli actually believe immaculate conception occurs in this day & age?
Here are colorful quotes from the President himself:
Since this law is technically a human rights violation; President Magufuli recieved alot of backlash from the media & the world. This was his advice to all the haters; President Magufuli to NGO’s(Non-Government Organizations):
“These NGOs should go out and open schools for parents.“
Another famous quote from the “beloved” President:
Those who oppose President Magufuli are often charged with insulting the President.
- In a country where is a teenage pregnancy rate of 25% with girls within the ages of 15-19 pregnant, We would think the Tanzanian Government would look for a more effective method that would actually work. Simple things like; actual sex education incorporated into the school curriculum, or continue to suffer sanctions such as: “World Bank pull’s $300m Tanzania loan”.
But hey, what do we know?

- However, our spidey senses are tingling; could this be a strategy to earn some good will before next year’s Presidential Election? Not too much of a far-fetched theory considering the lengths Nigerian politicians would actually go.
Still fighting KWARUPSHUN-corruption– President Muhammadu Buhari honours the governor of Kano State; Abdullahi Ganduje with the “Best Govenor” award

Internet Censorship Increases in Senegal
A whatsapp group joke gone wrong involving an image of President Macky Sall lands TV Reporter in jail for three months.
As a way to prevent the spread of “FAKE NEWS“
- Members of parliament have voted to “regulate” the internet. Some Human Rights groups fear it may give the state power to shut-down & censor internet searches.
- Senegalese people do have good reason to be cautious as there is an increasing number of state related internet shutdowns across the continent.

We remember Kasese
- This week marks the two-year anniversary of the Kasese Killings. 103 people, 15 of who were children were slain in the palace of King Charles Wesley Mumbere, Tribal Leader of Bakonzo People.
There has been no accountability from the Ugandan government regarding the killings. That’s no surprise to us though because the Ugandan President; Yoweri Museveni’s reputation does proceeds itself.
The government officals originally reported a death toll of 62 people.
- T’was the night of March 2017 that some how, this number magically increased. It was updated to 103 innocent lives lost.
A deeper look into the story; tells us of a schism that has existed for sometime since a disputed Presidential Election. involving est.1986 President Yoweri Museveni and the people of the Rwenzururu Kingdom. The Bakonzo declared their own Kingdom in 1962 and have lived lives of violent fighting till an agreement in 1982. Things seemed to get better in 2009 when President Museveni finally acknowledged the kingdom as its own entity. But it seems the relationship definitely is back on the fritz.
