    In an unprecedented move last week, India voted in support of Israel at the UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) to deny observer status to a Palestinian human rights organisation named ‘Shahed’. This is the first time India has taken a step back from its decades-old position on the two-state theory under which New Delhi sees both Israel and Palestine as separate and independent countries, seeking to bring peace in West Asia.The vote, which took place on 6 June at the UN, saw countries such as US, France, Germany, India, Japan, UK, South Korea and Canada polling in favour of...

    More than 1,000 people were feared dead in Mozambique four days after a cyclone slammed into the country, submerging entire villages and leaving bodies floating in the floodwaters, the nation's president said. "It is a real disaster of great proportions," President Filipe Nyusi said. Cyclone Idai could prove to be the deadliest storm in generations to hit the impoverished southeast African country of 30 million people. It struck Beira, an Indian Ocean port city of a half-million people, late Thursday and then moved inland to Zimbabwe and Malawi with strong winds and heavy rain. But it took days for the...

    On death row in Malawi, Byson Kaula was nearly executed three times - but on each occasion the hangman stopped work before hanging all the prisoners on his list. So he survived… until the country stopped executing people altogether.

    Melania Trump got a different view of educating children as she visited an African primary school on Thursday that has benefited from US assistance but struggles with an enrollment of more than 8 500 students. Some children learn lessons outdoors, seated shoulder-to-shoulder on loose, red dirt. Mrs Trump toured several outdoor classrooms at Chipala Primary School in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi, the second stop on her four-nation tour of the continent. The school is among those in the landlocked country that receive education assistance from the US Agency for International Development, including textbooks. Mrs Trump was on hand as...

    "Janet Littlefield, founder of Go! Malawi, teaches young Malawians—especially girls—to believe in themselves." The biggest cultural shifts start small. “It started with one kid who needed to go to school, and I just started paying,” says Janet Littlefield, a 42-year-old special education teacher from Hebron who has changed the educational landscape in a dozen rural villages in Malawi, a country in southeastern Africa. “Then it was two kids, three kids… I started working second jobs and tutoring so I could pay for kids to go to school.” When Littlefield graduated from Skidmore College in 1998, she joined the Peace Corps...

    Since September, a vampire scare has triggered mob violence in Malawi that has killed at least eight people accused of being bloodsuckers. The vampire rumors appear to have originated in neighboring Mozambique, although it’s not clear what sparked them. Belief in witchcraft is widespread in rural Malawi, a country in the southern section of Africa. Authorities say they are struggling to convince the population that the vampire rumors are not true.

    Over the last few weeks, stories have spread throughout the two villages that mysterious beings were attacking people at night and taking their blood. Known locally as 'anamapopa,' these fearsome forces are described as using both magical powers as well as modern technology to attack their victims. Their bizarre methodology is said to involve somehow disabling their target using an electrical charge or chemical substance, removing their blood via an unidentified instrument, and then vanishing in the form of a cat or dog. ... ... Meanwhile, in the other village gripped by the 'blood sucker' panic, the fear has risen...

  • Despite Clinton claims, 2012 email had classified marking

    EXCLUSIVE: Hillary Clinton, from the moment her exclusive use of personal email for government business was exposed, has claimed nothing she sent or received was marked classified at the time. But a 2012 email released by the State Department appears to challenge that claim because it carries a classified code known as a “portion marking” - and that marking was on the email when it was sent directly to Clinton’s account. The “C” - which means it was marked classified at the confidential level - is in the left-hand-margin and relates to an April 2012 phone call with Malawi's first...

    Hillary Clinton has claimed from the very beginning of the email scandal that nothing she sent or received was marked classified at the time. *snip* Unfortunately for Hillary, the State Department today released an email from 2012 that totally contradicts her "fact." According to Catherine Herridge at Fox News, the email carries "a classified code known as a 'portion marking' - and that marking was on the email when it was sent directly to Clinton’s account." (Not retroactively, as the Clinton camp likes to claim.)

    At least 18 people with albinism have been killed for their body parts in the southern African country of Malawi since November 2014, Amnesty International said in a report released Tuesday. The body parts are sold for use in remedies by witch doctors, who say albino parts bring good luck or wealth, according to the report. It added that women and children are especially vulnerable to attack because of the myth that having sex with a person with albinism can cure HIV/AIDS.

    Harvest should be the time for celebrations, weddings and full bellies in southern Malawi. But Christopher Witimani, Lilian Matafle and their seven children and four grandchildren had nothing to celebrate last week as they picked their meagre maize crop. Last year’s drought, followed by erratic rains, hit the village of Nkhotakota hard. But this year the rains never came and, for a second year running, the family grain store is empty. If they manage their savings carefully and eat just one small meal a day, they may just have enough food for two more months. By August, said Irish charity...

    Video footage of Muslim missionaries preaching and converting Africans in the Christian-majority states of Malawi and Uganda, show the Islamic leaders teaching the people to "bear witness" that Allah is god, his messenger is Muhammed, and "Jesus is the slave of Allah and his Messenger." Many of the people repeating the Islamic instructions are young but there are also many middle-aged and older people and, in one case, an apparently former Christian teen who is ordered to tear a crucifix from around his neck and "bear witness" to Allah. ...

    Egyptian cleric Wahid Abd Al-Salam Bali has led several Islamization delegations in Africa in recent years. The delegations, consisting mostly of Egyptian preachers, have toured the Islamic nations of Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania, and Ghana, and preached Islam to mostly Christian rural communities. According to Sheikh Bali's Facebook page, a 7-day campaign in Malawi in November 2015 yielded 4,379 new converts. It is noteworthy that the proselytizing sheikhs have modified the shahada recitation, in light of the mostly Christian target audience. To the customary "I attest that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is His Messenger," they have...

    DOWA, Malawi - In February, when the food ran out, Ezlina Chambukira started selling her precious possessions one by one. First, her goat. Then an old umbrella. Then two metal plates and a battered pail. When she had nothing left, she started praying for a miracle. For the first time in a decade, severe hunger is sweeping across southern Africa. The United Nations says that two years of erratic weather - alternating droughts and floods - coupled with mismanagement of food supplies have left seven million people in six countries at risk of starvation. Here in this dusty village of...

    PRESIDENTS Jacob Zuma of South Africa and Botswana’s Ian Khama angrily clashed with their Zimbabwean counterpart, President Robert Mugabe over xenophobia in South Africa, with the two demanding that instead of blaming their neighbour, Zimbabwe and other Sadc states must fix their broken economies to curb the rising tide of immigration. Hazel Ndebele/Elias Mambo While Sadc leaders met for an extraordinary summit in Harare on Wednesday to discuss an industrialisation strategy and roadmap, the major highlight of the meeting was the recent xenophobic violence and killings in South Africa which raised a storm of debate and anger across the region....
