Yesterday thousands of Kenyans questioned the ethics of @kimidefreytas and the @nytimes after they ran gruesome photos of the #RiversideAttack. We've questioned the ethics of photos that accompany her stories from Africa before.
On Dec. 26, a story by @kimidefreytas that she has pinned to her Twitter feed shows the face of a dead man in #DRC.

Here at @GlobalPress we've worked in #DRC for years, including in this area where this photo was taken. Aside from the ethical concerns of publishing the photo of this dead person and showing his face, the caption also lacked a name.

I will make a thread on why I am against the electoral putsch in #DRC and why I am worried for this country that has never known a democratic transition since independence.
Let me start with a disclaimer : I don’t like France. No rather I hate France. I have never hidden it and this will not change even after my death because it is personal. France hurt me , physically , psychologically, emotionally , financially by imposing a savage regime in #Togo
This said, may you all know that I don’t give a jack about #France and it’s mate Belgium which did worse in the #DRC than #France did in #Togo where we still have memories of White French soldiers descending on the streets along with our soldiers to repress us during protests.

This Radio, whose Director is @sergiondayi of RNC, broadcasts from Washington D.C., United States.

RNC is an armed group operating in eastern #DRC, which was pinned by the recent report of the UN Group of Experts.

Yesterday 4th January 2018, @jpturayishimye, Spokesperson of the RNC and one of the main hosts on Radio Itahuka, was receiving on his show Prof @charleskambanda, a law Professor at @StJohnsU. What this professor said very openly on air was chilling. Buckle up!

Right or wrong?

Good evening, and Kick off!..

The round leather game, as fondly called, used to be a mere recreational activity which attracted some rewards by the way. However, over the last three decades or so, the commercial value of sports, particularly football, has grown astronomically.
The increase in its commercial value has occasioned a reciprocal increase in disputes between persons involved in the game; from coaches, to clubs, to players, etc.
