China sends Ebola drug to Africa, eyes clinical trials

Ebola drug made in China

October 16, 2014, SHANGHAI (Reuters) – A Chinese drugmaker with military ties has sent an experimental Ebola drug to Africa for use by Chinese aid workers and is planning clinical trials there to combat the disease, executives at the firm told Reuters on Thursday.

Sihuan Pharmaceutical Holdings Group Ltd has supplied several thousand doses of its drug JK-05 to the region, Chief Operating Officer Jia Zhongxin said. More doses could be sent if needed, Jia said.

An Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the worst on record, has killed more than 4,000 people.

Governments and drugmakers around the world have been racing to find a treatment for the outbreak, which has spread as far as the United States and Europe. U.S. President Barack Obama has pledged to get more “aggressive” against the disease.

“Aid workers have already taken the drug with them, and if a case breaks out (amongst the aid workers), then the drug may be used,” added Huo Caixia, Sihuan’s assistant general manager.

Sihuan, part-owned by U.S. investment bank Morgan Stanley, is hoping to get the drug fast-tracked for civilian use in China. It has signed an agreement with the Academy of Military Medical Sciences (AMMS), a research unit, to seek approval for the drug’s use in China and push it to market. Read more…

Somalia: The Forgotten Enemy- Dammul-Jadiin and Ethiopian NISS collaboration scandal unmasked

By Ahmed Abdi and Abdullahi Nur Colombo | October 15, 2014

02 copySomalia- In the wake of the central government’s collapse in 1991, foreign countries took advantage of the political crisis in Somalia and they managed to run a network of spies within Somali politicians.

One of those countries that led a naked foreign interference is Somalia’s big, bad neighbor of Ethiopia, which has been meddling in Somalia’s domestic affairs over the last two decades to fulfill its selfish interests by creating chaos in bid to prevent a strong and effective government to be established in Somalia.

With the help of the West logistically and training , the Ethiopian National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) maintained to pursue its hidden but understandable agenda. Read more…

Ethiopian Airlines Should be Called Ebola Airlines

Ethiopian Airlines - EbolaOctober 15, 2014 (Ogaden Today) — A few weeks ago, my friend and I were discussing the dangers of Ebola to the Horn of Africa. Long story short, we both felt the virus would come to Ethiopia via Ethiopian Airlines, and that it would gradually spread to other countries in the region months later.

Yesterday, a report claimed there are four suspected cases of Ebola in Addis Ababa, and that the virus allegedly came from an unnamed West African diplomat who flew in to the country with Ethiopian Airlines.

While numerous carriers have suspended flights to regions suffering from an Ebola outbreak, Ethiopian Airlines remains the only carrier in East Africa to continue several flights daily to these affected regions. Read more…

Introducing Marsabit County, Kenya: Oromummaa as Universal Cultural Solidarity in East Africa

mersabitOctober 15, 2014 (Gadaa) — As we’ve shared in our message on the onset of the new season’s Irreecha (Birraa’s/Spring’s Irreecha) in September 2014, there are many Oromo tribes who are indigenous in Northern and Central as well as Coastal Kenya; some of these tribes include Borana, Garba, Munyoyaya, Orma, Waata, Wardei and Waso Boran. Though we’ve come to think of Oromummaa as a political construct in Oromia, we note that Oromummaa has also a cultural component to it. This cultural component is a universal ideal that can be used to bring solidarity among hitherto dispersed tribes of the Oromo in East Africa, even those of the Cushitic (and non-Cushitic) peoples in general. According to some sources, there are some tribes of the Oromo (and/or Cush) even in Uganda and Tanzania. Thus, Oromummaa, as universal cultural solidarity in East Africa, will, itself, be a sub-component of the pan-African movement in general – bringing people from several African countries together to celebrate the Africanness that is Oromummaa.

U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia warns of attacks by Somali militants

October 15, 2014 (Reuters) – The U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia has warned of a possible attack by Somali militant group al Shabaab and urged its nationals to avoid large crowds and hotels and restaurants in an upscale district of the capital Addis Ababa.

The Ethiopian authorities said late last year that its security forces were on heightened alert after receiving strong evidence al Shabaab was plotting further attacks after a botched suicide bombing in Addis Ababa.

Ethiopian troops, alongside forces from Uganda, Burundi, Kenya and Djibouti, are part of an African Union (AU) mission fighting al Shabaab inside Somalia. Their presence has been used by the al Qaeda-aligned insurgents as a rallying cry for a holy war against foreign troops on Somali soil. Read more…

Ethiopian Editor Convicted for Inciting Public With Articles

By William Davison, Oct 15, 2014

Temesgen Desalegn

An Ethiopian editor is facing as many as 10 years in prison after being convicted of inciting the public against the government through his newspaper articles, his lawyer said.

Temesgen Desalegn, the former editor of Feteh, a defunct weekly newspaper, was convicted yesterday by the Federal High Court on charges that also included defaming the government and distorting public opinion, after a case that lasted about two years, lawyer Ameha Mekonnen said. He will be sentenced on Oct. 27.

“Temesgen becomes the first journalist who’s accused and found guilty only for what he’s written in a newspaper,” Ameha said by phone today from Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa. “The evidence was only his writing, nothing else.”

Communications Minister Redwan Hussien said that the conviction was for articles Temesgen wrote for Feteh about two years ago. The case concerned “incitement and misinforming the public,” he said by phone. Read more…

ETHIOPIA: A Minor Gets Prison Terms for Alleged Instigation

HRLHA FineHRLHA – URGENT ACTION                               October 14, 2014

The Human Rights League of the Horn of Africa (HRLHA) strongly condemns the sentencing of Abde Jemal, a fourteen-year old minor, in adults’ court to four years in prison and $700.00 Birr fine for allegedly inciting people to political violence. According to HRLHA’s correspondents, Abde Jemal was arrested by the security agents while tending his parents’ cattle out in the field. HRLHA has learnt that Abde Jemal was severely beaten up (in other words, physically tortured) following his arrest by members of the security force in order to coerce him into confessing in court to the alleged crime. To begin with, this was allowed to happen despite the provisions of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child 1990, to which Ethiopia is a signatory, and which clearly states under Article 37(a) that State Parties shall ensure that “No child shall be subjected to torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment”; and additionally guarantees under article 40, sub-article 2(a) that every child alleged as or accused of having infringed the penal law should … “Not be compelled to give testimony or to confess guilt.” Read more…
