All 157 On Board Ethiopian Airplane Died in Crash

Published

on

Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 bound for Nairobi crashed Sunday killing all 157 people On-board, according to state media.
The state affiliated Fana Broadcasting cited the airline saying there were no survivors from the flight. According to the airline, the flight took off at 8:38 a.m. and lost contact six minutes later, crashing near the city of Bishoftu less than 40 miles to the southeast of Addis Ababa.
“It is believed that there were 149 passengers and eight crew onboard the flight but we are currently confirming the details of the passenger manifest for the flight,” the airline said in a statement.

The airline set up emergency hotline numbers for families and friends of victims and changed the cover image on its Facebook page to black.
The prime minister’s office issued a tweet expressing its “deepest condolences” to the families of those who lost people on the flight.
The airline said the plane was a Boeing 737 800 Max, the same model aircraft involved in the Indonesian Lion Air crash in October in which the plane plunged into the sea shortly after take off.
Ethiopian Airlines announced the acquisition of the brand new Max aircraft in July. According to the Swedish Flightradar 24 website, the aircraft had its maiden flight in October. The site added that the flight’s vertical speed was “unstable” after take off.
The Max model is the newest version of Boeing’s workhorse 737 model, the world’s most popular commercial aircraft.
Boeing issued a statement that it was aware of the accident “and is closely monitoring the situation.”
Following the crash of Lion Air flight 610 in Indonesia, Boeing issued an emergency notice that an erroneous sensor input could “cause the flight crew to have difficulty controlling the airplane,” leading to “possible impact with terrain.”
This model plane lacks a common override feature that allows pilots to reliably pull planes out of nose dives.
Ethiopian Airlines is the continent’s largest airline in terms of destinations and passengers served. It has ambitions to becoming the gateway to Africa.
The airline has over 100 destinations worldwide, including flights to Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
The airline’s last major accident was in 2010 when an aircraft plunged into the Mediterranean shortly after take off from Beirut’s airport killing all 90 people on board. (Washington Post)

The grieving relatives have been given ground from the crash site as the bodies have not yet been formally identified.

CRASH SITE: Charred earth from location of the Ethiopian Airlines disaster has been given to bereaved relatives

THE FAMILIES of victims of the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash have been given bags of earth to bury as the remains of their loved ones have not been recovered.
All 157 people on board the flight from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to Nairobi, Kenya, died when it plummeted to the ground just six minutes after takeoff on Sunday, March 10.
Officials have not formally identified any of the bodies yet and say that it could take months before they do so.
In the absence of remains, charred earth from the crash site has been given to grieving relatives. Some families have buried coffins without bodies.
Temporary death certificates have been issued to bereaved relatives and authorities have started the collection of DNA samples for the identification process.
Dagmawit Moges, Ethiopia’s transport minister, said: “The investigation of such magnitude requires a careful analysis and considerable time to come up with something concrete.”
She added: “We are waiting for the results. We are making all the necessary efforts to identify the cause of the accident.”
Airlines and aviation agencies around the world have grounded Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft while investigations into the cause of the crash, the second involving the model in less than five months, continues.
Moges has said that data from the flight suggests “clear similarities” between the Ethiopian Airlines crash and a Lion Air crash in Indonesia last October. The 737 Max was aircraft was used in both incidents.
Boeing, which has said it maintains its confidence in the safety of 737 Max model but supports action to temporarily ground the aircraft, is continuing to provide technical assistance at the request of and under the direction of the those investigating what caused the crash.

Ghanaian female scientist receives international award for research

Published

on

Dr Priscilla Mante from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana was one of 15 International Rising Talents and the only African award recipient.

Since 1998, the L’Oréal Foundation (www.FondationLOreal.com/en), in partnership with UNESCO, has worked to improve the representation of women in scientific careers, remaining strong in our conviction that the world needs science, and science needs women. In its first 21 years, the For Women in Science programme supported and raised the profile of 107 laureates and more than 3,000 talented young scientists, both doctoral and post-doctoral candidates, providing research fellowships, allocated annually in 117 countries.

Five outstanding Laureates, one from each continent, were honoured for their significant contribution to science. These exceptional women were recognised for the excellence of their research in the fields of material science, mathematics and computer science and they will each receive €100,000. Their achievements were celebrated alongside 15 International Rising Talents who are promising young women scientists from across the world at an awards ceremony on 14th March 2019 at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris.

Dr Priscilla Mante from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana was one of 15 International Rising Talents and the only African award recipient. She is also the first recipient of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science International Rising Talent Award from her institution.

Background of research

Expanding access to affordable, high quality medical care in Africa is a major focus for sustainable development. Specialising in neuropharmacology and neuroscience, Dr. Priscilla Kolibea Mante is researching alternative, plant-based therapeutic options to manage drug-resistant epilepsy and the neglected tropical disease, neurocysticercosis.

She is currently exploring the anticonvulsant activity of the plant alkaloid cryptolepine and its solid-lipid nanoparticles in the management of neurocysticercosis-induced epilepsy. By identifying a way to help cryptolepine permeate more efficiently into the central nervous system, the risk of convulsion should be reduced, helping the patient to manage their condition as effectively as possible. “It’s very rewarding to know that my research could significantly alter complicated structures like the brain and positively affect people’s lives”, she says.

Dr. Priscilla Kolibea Mante believes the biggest challenge for women in science is managing negative perceptions of ambition in women and overcoming gender stereotypes. Having faith in the future, she is convinced that her generation has been fortunate to receive strong support, and believe women can tap into that and spearhead their careers to higher levels. “The world will make room for us”, she says. “The more women push for senior roles, the harder it will be to ignore them.” The expert guidance of both men and women throughout her career has been so important that Dr. Priscilla Kolibea Mante now considers herself a “champion” of mentorship, regularly supporting younger scientists in pursuing their dreams. She concludes: “Sometimes it’s important to hold your mentee’s hand and guide them towards opportunities they never knew existed.”

In 2018, Dr Mante received one of two L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Sub-Saharan Africa post-doctoral fellowships. The programme recognised 14 fellows – 12 doctoral and 2 post-doctoral – from five countries in sub-Saharan Africa (Ghana, Mauritius, Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria). They were selected for the scientific excellence of their work from more than 480 applicants, by a jury of independent experts.

US grounds all Boeing 737 Max planes

Published

on

The decision comes after several countries prohibited flights using the aircraft from taking to the skies.

ALL BOEING 737 Max 8 and 9 aircraft have been grounded following the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has announced.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the FAA said: “The FAA is ordering the temporary grounding of Boeing 737 Max aircraft operated by US airlines or in US territory. The agency made this decision as a result of the data gathering process and new evidence collected at the site.”
“Boeing continues to have full confidence in the safety of the 737 Max. However, after consultation with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), and aviation authorities and its customers around the world, Boeing has determined – out of an abundance of temporary suspension of operations of the entire global fleet of 371 737 Max aircraft,” Boeing said in a statement.
The news comes after Boeing said that it did not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators and the FAA did not mandate the grounding of flights operating using the model earlier this week.
On Sunday, March 10, an Ethiopian Airlines flight heading for Nairobi, Kenya, crashed just six minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
All 157 people – 149 passengers and eight crew members – on board the Boeing 737 Max flight died.
Several countries, including the UK, grounded flights operated using the aircraft in the wake of the crash. But Boeing and the US, which maintain the model is safe to fly, had not chosen to immediately follow suit.
The investigation into the crash, which is the second major incident involving a 737 Max model in less than five months, is ongoing.
In October, the same model was involved in a fatal crash after taking off from Soekarno-Hatta airport in Jakarta, Indonesia.
All one-hundred and eighty-four passengers and five crew members died.

Theresa May loses meaningful vote on Brexit deal by a huge margin of MPs

Published

on

The House of Commons had been voting on the Withdrawal Agreement, which now includes legal reassurances about the UK’s ability to exit the Irish border backstop. Earlier today, Theresa May’s attorney general Geoffrey Cox did not give the legal assurances a ringing endorsement. The DUP then said that their concerns had not been assuaged, and that it could not at this stage support the agreement.

MPs voted by 391 to 242 against the deal, despite the Prime Minister’s assurance that new agreements reached with Jean-Claude Juncker in Strasbourg would ensure the UK cannot be trapped in the controversial backstop arrangement indefinitely.Although the 149 margin was reduced from the record 230-vote defeat of the first “meaningful vote” in January, Mrs May was left far adrift from a majority with just 17 days to go to the scheduled date of Brexit on March 29.The prime minister is making a statement now. MPs are expected to vote tomorrow and on Thursday about whether or not to rule out a ‘no deal’ EU exit and whether to extend Article 50 and so the UK’s departure from the European Union.

European Commission president Mr Juncker had already warned that if MPs turned down the package agreed in Strasbourg on Monday, there would be “no third chance” to renegotiate. In line with a promise set out by Mrs May last month, MPs are now due to vote on Wednesday on whether they are willing for the UK to leave the EU without a deal on March 29.If they reject no-deal as most Westminster observers expect, a third vote will follow – probably on Thursday – on authorising Mrs May to request an extension of the two-year Article 50 negotiation process. An extension requires the unanimous agreement of all 27 remaining member states, and Mr Juncker has warned that it cannot stretch beyond May 23 unless the UK takes part in the European Parliament elections starting on that date.

Cabinet gave its approval to Mrs May’s package at an early-morning meeting in 10 Downing Street which ended with the PM telling colleagues: “Today is the day. Let’s get this done.”

But the momentum moved sharply against the Prime Minister shortly afterwards, as Attorney General Geoffrey Cox released formal legal advice that the changes secured by Mrs May “reduce the risk” that the backstop will be permanent, but do not remove it altogether.The Star Chamber of lawyers convened by the Brexit-backing European Research Group declared that three new documents agreed in Strasbourg failed to deliver the legally-binding changes demanded by the Commons.And the Democratic Unionist Party – which props up Mrs May’s minority administration in the Commons – said its 10 MPs would vote against the latest deal as “sufficient progress has not been achieved at this time”.The Prime Minister, battling a croaky voice and with husband Philip watching from the Commons gallery, warned MPs that “Brexit could be lost” if they gave her deal the thumbs-down again.

But she met a wall of hostility from opposition parties, while only a handful of the 118 Tories who rebelled in January said they would switch sides to back her.Shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said that “no significant changes” had been secured in two months of negotiations and the Government’s strategy was “in tatters”.Brexit figurehead and former foreign secretary Boris Johnson told the Commons that Mrs May and Mr Cox had “sowed an apron of fig leaves that does nothing to conceal the embarrassment and indignity of the UK.”Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn told the Commons: “After three months of running down the clock the Prime Minister has, despite very extensive delays, achieved not a single change to the Withdrawal Agreement.“Not one single word has changed. In terms of the substance, literally, nothing has changed.”Charles Walker, vice chairman of the 1922 Committee of backbench Tory MPs, warned that defeat in the second “meaningful vote” on Tuesday evening would lead to a general election.

He told BBC Radio 4’s World At One: “If it doesn’t go through tonight, as sure as night follows day, there will be a general election within a matter of days or weeks.“It is not sustainable, the current situation in Parliament.”

Equatorial Guinea to host African Development Bank’s 2019 Annual Meetings in Malabo

Published

on

Equatorial Guinea will host the African Development Bank’s next Annual Meetings in June 2019, following the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the two parties. The Annual Meetings will take place from 11th to 14th June, 2019 in the country’s capital city, Malabo.
“The Government and people of Equatorial Guinea are ready and look forward to hosting the African Development Bank’s flagship event in 2019,” said Mr. Bernardo Abaga Ndong, general coordinator of the National Technical Committee in charge of the Annual Meetings.
“We are determined to make the Annual Meetings in our country a most resounding success that will definitely bolster our national prestige, because an event with over 3,000 participants is not a small affair,” Ndong emphasised. An aide-memoire on the country’s preparedness to host the event was signed on 27th February 2019. The signing took place on the sidelines of regional consultative meetings between the Bank and its African shareholders, held in Abidjan from 25th February to 1st March, 2019, and attended by Equatorial Guinea’s finance minister Lucas Abaga Nchama.
Speaking at the signing, André Basse, the African Development Bank’s Chief of protocol, who signed on behalf of the Bank, commended the host country for its commitment to the success of the Annual Meetings, returning this year to African soil after being held in Korea and India respectively.
The theme of the African Development Bank’s Annual Meetings this year is ‘Regional integration’ – one of the Bank’s five strategic priorities, known as the High 5s: (Light up and power Africa, Feed Africa, Industrialise Africa, Integrate Africa and Improve the quality of life of the people of Africa).
With 1 billion people, Africa has a combined GDP of more than $3.4 trillion. Such a market could create huge opportunities for producers on the continent. But to make it a reality, African governments and regional economic communities should intensify efforts aimed at facilitating the free movement of goods, services, people and trade across borders.
The Bank’s Annual Meetings represent a unique opportunity to discuss challenges and ways to advance the continent’s regional integration agenda.
Some 3,000 participants are expected in Malabo, including finance ministers, governors of central banks, policy makers, civil society groups, heads of international organisations and business leaders from the Bank Group’s member states.

Government cautions Nigerians against ‘flouting currency rules’ in Ethiopia

Published

on

The Nigerian Government has cautioned Nigerian travellers against flouting foreign currency rules when travelling to Ethiopia.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, gave the warning in Abuja on Monday.
In a press release signed by the Mrs. Chinyere Ihuoma, Director, Public Communication and National Orientation, Mr. Mohammed said Nigerian travellers were consistently losing foreign currency to Ethiopian customs and revenue authority – because of their ignorance of Ethiopia’s regulation regarding declaration of foreign currency and other valuables.
“To prevent financial losses recorded to Nigerian travellers to and on transit from Addis Ababa, the ministry of foreign affairs has requested the urgent dissemination of the need for Nigerian travellers to strictly adhere to this regulation by declaring foreign currencies and other valuables in their possession to Ethiopian authorities to avoid seizure and unnecessary harassment,” he said.
The Information minister asked media houses in the country to disseminate this “vital information” to Nigerians and the general public to ensure that Nigerian travellers to Addis Ababa have knowledge of Ethiopia’s travel rules .
Earlier this year the Nigerian mission in Addis Ababa protested to the Ethiopian government about the frequent seizure of foreign currency from Nigerian travellers without proper awareness made by the Ethiopian Airlines on arrival in Addis Ababa.

The Five Candidates Running in Senegal’s Presidential Election

Published

on

DAKAR — Senegal, the most stable democracy in West Africa, is preparing for an election on Sunday with President Macky Sall facing off against four other candidates. Sall is widely expected to win a second term, after the country’s two best-known opposition figures were barred from running because of corruption allegations, in moves critics said represented a worrying crackdown on dissent.

A supporter of Idrissa Seck, presidential candidate of the coalition “Idy 2019”, reacts at a campaign rally in Thies, Senegal February 3, 2019. Picture taken February 3, 2019.

Below is a look at the five candidates competing in the Feb. 24 ballot:

The incumbent: Macky Sall
Favorite to win the upcoming vote, the Senegalese president first came to power in 2012, after beating former president and mentor Abdoulaye Wade in the second round.
Sall, 57, started in politics as a member of Wade’s Senegalese Democratic Party (PDS) and served as his prime minister between 2004 and 2007. Internal disputes led Sall to split with Wade in 2008 and form his own party, Alliance for the Republic (APR).
As president, Sall launched an ambitious development and reform programme aimed at transforming Senegal into an emerging economy by 2035. The plan includes an array of big ticket infrastructure projects, including a rail project, power generation and a futuristic new city on the outskirts of Dakar.
But the barring of his main rivals, Khalifa Sall, who is in jail for corruption, and Karim Wade, son of the former president, also previously jailed for graft, has raised eyebrows among voters.
Heavy-handed crackdowns by security forces on some protests have also prompted accusations that President Sall has an authoritarian streak.

The twice-defeated: Idrissa Seck
Like Sall, Idrissa Seck, 60, served as Wade’s prime minister in the 2000s, but his subsequent bids for the presidency have been unsuccessful.
Seck was sacked as prime minister in 2004 over embezzlement allegations and spent some months in jail before his case was dismissed. In 2006, he founded the party Rewmi (“The Country,” in the Wolof language) and ran against Wade in 2007, finishing second.
He ran again in 2012 but did not make it to the second round. He is one of Sall’s main challengers, but a widely-cited survey in November showed him trailing the incumbent with little over eight percent support.

The newcomer: Ousmane Sonko
At 45 years old, Sonko is the youngest contestant in the race and a newcomer to the political scene. His relative youth plays to his advantage in Senegal, where more than 60 percent of the population is under 25 and anxious for change.
The tax inspector made a name for himself in 2016 when he became a whistleblower, denouncing corrupt practices in the Senegalese elite.
He was sacked over the activism, but his new-found prominence led to his election as a lawmaker in 2017, representing his own party: the Patriots of Senegal for Work, Ethics and Fraternity (PASTEF).
He is Sall’s other main challenger with 15 percent support, according to the November survey, which was conducted before the candidates list was finalized. Official opinion polls are banned ahead of elections.

The academic: Issa Sall
The 63-year-old IT professor represents the Party of Unity and Assembly (PUR). His party is affiliated with the Moustarchidine religious movement, part of a leading Sufi brotherhood in Senegal.
Founder of a private university in Dakar, Issa Sall launched his political career in the late 1990s. He is one of only three representatives of his party in the national assembly.

The outsider: Madicke Niang
Madicke Niang, 66, is seen as having the least chance of winning the upcoming vote.
A long-time member of the PDS, Niang was a loyal supporter of former president Wade and served as a minister in his government for many years. His decision last year to run for president led to his banishment from the party, as Wade wanted his son Karim to represent PDS in the race.

U.S. Embassy Organizes Second EthiopiaHacks! Hackathon on Digital ID

Published

on

The theme of the second hackathon, held at the American Center in Addis Ababa, was “digital identification”
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia, February 11, 2019/ — The U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa launched the second in a series of 12 hackathons under its Ethiopia Hacks! Program.

The theme of the second hackathon, held at the American Center in Addis Ababa, was “digital identification”, where participants explored out technology could be used to register and correctly identify refugees and Internally Displaced People (IDPs), ensuring they receive appropriate benefits, while protecting individual privacy.

Through Ethiopia Hacks! The U.S. Embassy provides a platform to encourage emerging tech-savvy to exercise their design, problem-solving, and coding skills to address challenges in their communities. Moreover, students can use this opportunity as a networking platform to further develop and prepare applications for markets where there is need for it.

U.S. Embassy Spokesperson Nick Barnett said, “We hope the hackathons show the participants as well as the wider community that Ethiopians have what it takes to tackle their own challenges with home-grown solutions. It is another way the United States is investing in the capacity of Ethiopians to build a bright future for themselves.”

In total, the Ethiopia Hacks! Program will invest in the capacity of 600 tech-savvy youth, who will have the opportunity to participate and generate solutions for their communities. Funding is provided jointly by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Ethiopia Hacks! Will take place in Addis Ababa, Jimma, Dire Dawa and Bahir Dar.

Ethiopia Hacks! Is conducted in partnership with the Google Developers Group (GDG- Addis) and the Centre for Women’s Economic Environment (CAWEE). Each hackathon will challenge young tech developers to identify prototype solutions to challenges in Ethiopia.

ENTER NIGERIA Winning Sunday with The Young Netpreneur for the Week :Ken Nwadiogbu @kennwadio

 

Ken Nwadiogbu (b. 1994) is a Nigerian born Multidisciplinary Artist, popularly known as KenArt, whose practice is primarily centered around hyper-realistic drawings and works on paper.
Nwadiogbu believes that the society speaks- This voice inspires his art, which evaluates, interrogates and challenges socio-political structures and issues within the society. In his reply to this society, he is able to inspire one or two people to also re-valuate their socio-political structures as we know it. The desire to change his society and the way people think is what drives him to create art every day. Gender equality, African cultures, and Black power are a few aspects of his current research and artistic practice.
Nwadiogbu was born in Lagos, Nigeria and holds a B.Sc in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Lagos, Nigeria. His art career started in the university, and with no formal training, has pushed him to become one of the most interesting young contemporary artists from Nigeria, creating works that question life- calling out some of the problems and becoming very grounded in human consciousness..
Nwadiogbu has been featured in lots of local and international group exhibitions and fairs, including the Insanity exhibition, sponsored by Frot Foundation, in Omenka Gallery, Nigeria; the TMC’s It’s Not Furniture, curated by Winifred Okpapi; the Artyrama’s group exhibition curated by Mr Jess Castellote; Art X Lagos, sponsored by Artyrama Gallery, in Lagos, Nigeria; the Moniker Art Fair, sponsored by Creative Debuts, in Brooklyn, NYC; the Anti-Trump show organised in UK; the Afriuture Exhibition by Ramati Art Africa in association with Commonwealth Africa Summit, in Toronto, Canada; amongst many others.
