it's a big step towards a bright future. for go m. 16. w. 2 children a. good link to scream africa the world or link to exceptional stories and discussions on the news and easy and while loops i d w 2 comes to recount join us on facebook. for god. this is news africa coming up on the program unprecedented in the ass size and the out with 10 children destroy everything in the pop. of locos ravaging the east africa and threatening to foot security of millions of people also coming out just imagining do they went through these cycles thinking that it was so it was really
no study for me. i almost felt like crying. we even said that plays in commerce where many thousands of africans began horrific journey into slavery in america. fighting for respect and equality we hear from the boxing club in nairobi inspiring young girls to fulfill our dreams. i could join you know your welcome to the program now that there's a swarm of desert locust and they are up to no good they are eating lots of east africa in the west to break some regions i've seen for 70 years so if you're on kenya the west affected. gonda is
a breeze thing for an invasion to authorities have advised citizens to stock up on food as the insects approach the border with kenya research as c.b. pulls out unprecedented threat to food security in some of the wilds most vulnerable countries. they eat and destroy everything on their way to. one swarm message 60 kilometers long and 40 kilometers wide hundreds of thousands of acres of crops destroyed. people fight back with whatever means they have. we are more than 200 head is here and we all depend on this land for grazing. now it will be disastrous if we all perish without getting any help from this warms came from yemen then down from the sea to the horn of africa deal unusual warm
temperatures off the coast are partly to blame the recent heavy rainfall has created the perfect breeding conditions the greenery that has sprung up is now fueling them it has almost become a desperate battle with the other. and it is the route they're going to enclose the autumn look at it again that this one can be used their own so once all this is sick that the guys that are destroying. agriculture is big business in the region here they can your national government is now increasing the efforts and spraying from the yeah this warms the spreading fast up to 150 kilometers a day the un's food and agriculture organization is raising the alarm now calling for international assistance it's the worst that we've seen in. in
somalia in 25 years and of course that we've seen in kenya and south over 70 years the fear is that the locust numbers could increase 500 times in the next few months . joining me now is will go to johnny as a son barrack the general consumer protection with a food and agriculture organization thanks for your time so it's the worst locust 'd outbreak in decades across east africa what is causing this now. well to our knowledge it's really it's really exacerbation or. better. climate conditions which actually allowed the breeding of locust in eastern africa then does not this was not happen as you rightly say that for 4 decades in december we had 4 cycle of switch formed in then on so it cause i don't look for
moisture flames to come in the sun nothing in this allowed the local soup eat in mass and this locust can breed in millions and then if you sell out actually build up so that is really you know me and f. octo or. climate conditions that have chains to make it suitable for the locals to predict ok they are eating everything in the sights now how serious could the implications be. implications could be extremely serious am global figures so far report from ifill has shown that 821000000 persons out when and in any nice enough in africa we have 227000000 persons who are who are going on in eastern africa contributes what they keep us and of these 200 in 27000000 and we see that in the last 2 by 3 to 4 years there has been
asked by system drought all floods you could record in kenya more than $100.00 in 20 something persons died because of floods last year so that means that the the climate conditions then what they have what it will cost could cause is lead to be destruction to grow plants and also for us to live and decided livelihoods of most of the population in eastern africa at the horn of africa ok so what edge and action is needed to get rid of them. well now that you know cause that's already heightened there in quite a number of countries the countries that did most it is kenya and somalia and ethiopia and then countries that do this hour so south sudan and uganda. so in that one about 3 countries that it countries might be yemen so that if yeah yeah
sudan egypt how all infested it's going farther east towards india pakistan iran and all these are in effect that but then didn't see it in a lot of laughs it plays out one side and now that the locus has been seen in many slums of all we have we had any warnings as well as several and yeah besting for now to do. is to do some spring was. saying this is sites and also sites ok because johnny with the un's foot and i go jogging ization thank you very much for your time. so it's been about $200.00 yes since the transatlantic slave trade was abolished many tourists especially those of african origin often visit the continents to lead more about events that took place africa was home to several slave ports and
markets but has enough been done to properly manage their history in cameroon if form a slave site is still standing but locals think it's been neglected more than 400 years ago these beauty was home for comers cut short sleeves causes of men we men and children which seemed i can't hear in b. india. walking through this door of newry to many started dead journey into slavery to europe and the americas. journalist and blogger so no one. is visiting b. india with his friends from the history books i thought they were something abstract but today i've come myself to leave the whole of the horrific stories of our forefathers just entering there as soon as i stepped inside these gates. i put
myself in the place of our forefathers and just imagining the torture they went through the psychological torture of entering that gate it was really no study for me i almost felt like crying but i had to hold my ts. the rishi street has not translated to proper management for bindiya. most of the structures are covered in vegetation and the route leading to the police is yet to be constructed. the current government is pushing to get bindiya recognized as the unesco world heritage site. these days just a few people like salome visit the loosely. he's planning to write about the libya in his blog when you look at it you realize that. little has been done to develop the police us to make tories feel confortable when they come in year and i
really doubt that if that was really happening because our tories were not one to recommend another person to come here the next time because the police really does not look hospitable for 4 tories so i think that it's really important for the government to put feet on the ground and to see how they can develop it it can really being a substantial income more an italian americans have treated a sister route to travel route. rescissions see what and 10 percent of all africans who left the continent went through bia. at least 200 chiefs involved in the transatlantic slave trade here. is a descendant of deuce who once lived in the sleeve in which he walks or part time as a tall guy every body have to contribute but he decides to see. also for me i try to create
a group. think more they use of these contacts to visit the site because many. actually meet. face made into being. so the world is trying not to forget the events that took place here maybe you could help inspire young people to call and see. now is an area in nairobi kenya often linked to violence and can be a difficult place to live especially for females now a project called box girls is trying to offer hope to some of the women and children who live there it teaches them self defense and how to make a positive impact on the our community when i hear from fitz one year old trina sokol. yes because from the slums.
