🚨BREAKING: @WHO *finally* declares the #Ebola outbreak in #Congo as an international health emergency.

LONG OVERDUE, as >1,600 people have died since Aug'18 in the 2nd-deadliest #EbolaOutbreak ever, and the virus just spread to a city of 2 million.😱

apnews.com/204fc739fc5846…
@WHO WHO was horribly slow in responding to the West Africa #Ebola outbreak that killed >11,000. WHO repeatedly declined to declare an emergency until #Ebola was spreading explosively in 3 countries & 1,000 people died. WHO feared it would "anger the countries & hurt their economies."
@WHO I spent nearly a decade working to develop an effective treatment for #Ebola & other hemorrhagic fever viruses. Deadly outbreaks are becoming MORE frequent and are killing MORE people. #Congo + other affected countries need help NOW‼️

Today is D.R. Congo independence day, so here's is a thread briefly looking at Congo's history from the precolonial era, through to independence. #Congo #DRC #mboka #independence
One of the earliest artefacts discovered in Congo's history is the Ishango bone. A mathematical tool, etched into an animal bone, discovered in the Ishango region of eastern Congo. The bone is believed to date back to circa 18’000-20’000BC.
The Kingdom of Kongo (Royaume du Kongo), circa 1500s, believed to be in its 13th dynasty at the time, had a population of 100’000 people in the capital city Mbanza-Kongo (London approx 50’000 at the time).

#Kinshasa est une ville spirituelle pour les Congolais, chose qui a rendu sa survie comme entité urbaine possible. Ce sont les Kinois qui l'ont maintenu en vie, malgré notre folie commune. Physiquement, cette ville est kadavere. #Congo
Drôle comment le concept Africain de la ville est basé sur la présence humaine pdt que le concept non-Africain de la ville est basé sur la présence des infrastructures pour accueillir des humains. La carence infrastructurelle a maintenu nos villes en vie par désir de survivre.
Comme Africains, nous avons tellement d'éléments immatériels qui conditionnent notre survie physique. Et le fait que les fous au pouvoir chez nous n’ont jamais réussi à matérialiser nos désirs, l’immatériel en nous, nous a gardé en vie, par résistance.

1. En cette période de commémoration, je voudrais parler de Rose, une grande dame pour laquelle je veux tenir nos mémoires en éveil. Sa vie a basculé entre le 22/04 et le 17/06/1994. Chaque jour jusqu'au 17/06, je vais vous parler de celle qu'elle fut #laVieDeRose #Rwanda #RwOT🇷🇼
2. Comme toute chronique, l’itinéraire de vie que je vais vous raconter est divisé en plusieurs périodes. L'histoire de Rose suit le calendrier de l'Histoire de son pays natal, le Rwanda : avant 1959, entre 1959 et 1994, entre avril et juillet 1994 et après 1994. #laVieDeRose
3. Elle s’appelait donc Rose, et elle était aussi belle que la reine des fleurs. Comme ne tarderait pas à le démontrer son parcours accidenté de jeune fille, de femme, de mère puis de veuve, Rose appartenait à la version la plus résistante de l’arbuste dont elle porte le nom.

On Dec 12 there were 505 #Ebola cases reported in #DRCongo -- 2 dys later it's 521, w/>30 cases in the large city of Butembo. "Control" seems elusive.
Here are some reasons for rising concern (see my thread):
National elections are days away (Dec 23) & violence is rising. 2 dys ago someone set fire to the election warehouse, destroying 1000s of voting machines in Kinshasa.

How Europe Raped Africa

The Berlin conference of 1884 is where European colonising nations basically carved up Africa. Historians refer to it as “the scramble for Africa”.

#Africa #Europe #WhiteSupremacy
The countries represented at the time included Austria-Hungary, Belgium, Denmark, #France, #Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, #Russia, #Spain, Sweden-Norway (unified from 1814-1905), #Turkey, and the United States of #America.
The Conference of 1884–85, also known as the Congo Conference, regulated European colonization and trade in #Africa during the New Imperialism period and coincided with Germany's sudden emergence as an imperial power.

141. A la hora del montoneo fashionista jashtaguero, resulta que todos son fulanita o fulanito; hasta el perro son. Pero cuando toca revisar el nivel de responsabilidad personal en el crimen de la #PederastiaEclesiástica, no hay quien se apunte con el #TodosSomosCómplices
143. #Bergoglio da consejos de qué hacer con un hijo homosexual; sin embargo este "Padre espiritual" está atiborrado de hijos espirituales homosexuales -curas-, a los que les solapa sus abusos en contra de seminaristas:

Todo está claro en el enlace del tuit 135 de este hilo.

The Money is BIG @bonifacemwangi BIG. Land issues of #Samburu #Maa, #Rendille #Pokot is Politicians + #NIRT with #GoK behind them - and behind the land sales - they also use @NPSOfficial_KE, @AP's to evict pastoralists.
@ckfoot @gathara @alaminkimathi
Because it seems that this line of #CONservation has gotten international attention and more people are decrying the evictions of land from the indigenous community - the conservationists have taken an ugly turn - Sell wildlife....
#CONservation
#TheBigWhiteLie
@NationBreaking
Yet this is just as disastrous as evicting indigenous pastoralists.
• WILD LIFE belongs to #KENYANS as a whole, it cannot belong to eg, #NRT because it happens to be within those fences - fences which we agree, were put up illegally.

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...
