Open Letter : Kagame, come out and show leadership!

Mr.President, come out and show the leadership.

While the world leaders are standing with their people in solidarity, you have decided to abandon your own people, not even your ministers are saying anything to them. Your prime minister unlawfully declared the state of emergency, locked the people inside their houses, now hunger is suffocating them, others whose houses you demolished, they have been sleeping in the cold with their families exposed to this pandemic.

Mr.President, we last saw you when you did the act of hand washing, this reminds me of what Pilato did before handing Jesus over to the Jews to crucify him. Mr.President,you have handed over 12 million Rwandans to the COVID-19 and hunger to kill them? You shall be held accountable.

The same people you claim to have given you 99.9% election victory, you can’t stand with them in such time as this? Mr. President ,you are so ungrateful.
Mr. President, Rwandese people deserve to know your whereabouts. Please, come out and tell us what mechanisms your government has put in place to fight this pandemic, come out and tell our hungry people who have been locked up in their houses what your government is doing about their hunger situation.

Jeanne Mukamurenzi,
A concerned Citizen.

Rwanda: Mu gihe Miliyoni 210 zanyerejwe mu isanduku ya Leta, abaganga basezeye mu bitaro bya Nemba kubera kudahembwa

Igice-kimwe-cyinyubako-zibitaro-bya-Nemba-696x391Abakozi b’ibitaro bya Nemba biri mu Karere ka Gakenke, baratangaza ko kudahembwa bikomeje kubagiraho ingaruka ku buryo hari abahisemo gusezera bajya gushaka akazi ahandi.

Abasezeye ku kazi ku mpamvu bivugwa ko zifitanye isano n’icyo kibazo, harimo abaganga (abadogiteri) barindwi n’abaforomo bane, bikaba kandi bigaragazwa ko abo bakozi batangiye kugenda ‘urusorongo’ kuva aho icyo ikibazo cyatangiriye.

Uko ikibazo giteye, nk’uko bisobanurwa n’abakozi bakora muri serivisi zitandukanye mu bitaro bya Nemba, ngo kuva mu kwezi kwa kabiri kugeza mu mpera z’ukwezi kwa Kane bari batarahembwa.

Cyakora, ngo umushahara w’ukwezi kwa Werurwe wabagezeho mu cyumweru kirangiye.

Bari ‘mu bibazo’

Bamwe mu bakozi b’ibitaro bya Nemba baganiriye n’Ikinyamakuru Izuba Rirashe ariko bagasaba ko amazina ya bo atakwandikwa muri iyi nkuru, ‘kubw’umutekano’ wabo, bahuriza ku kugaragaza urusobe rw’ibibazo bakururiwe no kudahembwa.

Abo bakozi biganjemo abaganga n’abandi bafite imirimo itandukanye bakora mu bitaro bya Nemba, ibibazo bagaragaza ko barimo birimo kuba bamwe inyungu ku nguzanyo basabye muri banki zikomeje kwikuba, kuba abenshi benda gusohorwa mu nzu batuyemo no kuba abana babo baratangiye kwirukanwa mu mashuri kubera ko batabishyuriye amafaranga.

Umwe muri abo bakozi agira ati “Nti turi abahinzi ngo turahinga, icyo dukora ni ukuvura, ibi bitaro ni wo murima duhingamo, n’ubwo baherutse kuduhemba ukwezi kumwe hagasigara ukundi ndakumenyesha ko bamwe nta na make twafashe. Banki zariyishyuye barangije badutera penalty (ibihano) yo kutishyurira ku gihe nk’uko twabisezeranye, nka njye ubwo banki yahise iyakuraho; bashyizeho umushahara w’ukwezi kumwe noneho banki ihita yiyishyurira icyarimwe amezi abiri inongeraho no kumpa ibihano.”

Undi muganga we agira ati “Kubera kudahembwa imyenda yabaye myinshi; ubu umuntu ari kujya kwikopesha umuceri kuri butike bakakubwira ngo ‘banza uzane n’ay’ukwezi gushize’, n’ubwo baduhembye ukwezi kumwe birasa nk’aho ntacyo byamaze kuko twari tumaze abiri tudahembwa.”

Akomeza agira ati “Tekereza nawe kumara amezi abiri nta faranga kandi ukora! Depenses zabaye nyinshi; umuntu aba atega, agakodesha, akishyurira abana amashuri (…) ubu abana bo batangiye kwirukanwa basabwa minerval!”

Umuzi w’ikibazo

Amakuru Ikinyamakuru Izuba Rirashe gikesha Dr. Habimana Jean Baptiste, Umuyobozi w’ibitaro bya Nemba, agaragaza ko ikibazo kiri mu bitaro abereye umuyobozi, gishamikiye ku igabunuka ry’abaterankunga mu by’ubuzima mu gihe ngo ibyo bitaro bifite ubushobozi buke bwo kwibeshaho.

Uyu muyobozi agaragaza ko ko inkunga Ibitaro bya Nemba byagenerwaga na Minisiteri y’Ubuzima(MINISANTE), yavagamo agahimbazamuskyi k’abakozi ingana na miliyoni 25, yagabanijwe guhera mu mwaka wa 2015 maze igirwa miliyoni 7.

Dr. Habimana avuga kandi ko kuba abakozi batishyurwa bikomeje guterwa no kuba amafaranga yo kubishyura adahari, aha uyu muyobozi agaraza ko ibitaro bya Nemba amafaranga bisanzwe biyahabwa na Leta n’imishinga yayo iterwa inkunga n’ikigega cya ‘Global Fund’ ariko ngo yose ntaraboneka.

Ati “Tugira amafaranga ava henshi, ava muri Leta ari nayo menshi ntaraboneka.” Nanone, “ari aya Global Fund ntaraza, ari ayo tugenerwa na guverinoma na yo ntaraza (…) twe ayo twinjiza (ashingiye kuri mituweli) ntiyaduhaza.”

Dr. Habimana akomeza avuga ko ubusanzwe imishahara y’abakozi ibitaro biyihabwa buri gihembwe gusa ngo iyo muri iki gihembwe ibitaro bya Nemba ntibirayibona.

Cyakora umuyobozi w’ibitaro bya Nemba, avuga ko icyo kibazo kiri gushakirwa umuti ku bufatanye bw’inzego zose kireba ku buryo ngo ‘muri iki cyumweru’ kizaba cyakemutse, abakozi bagahabwa umushahara wa bo w’Ukwezi kwa Kane.

Agira ati “Na njye sinsinzira kuko iyo umukozi yakoze aba agomba guhembwa.” Yungamo ati, “Muri iki cyumweru ibibazo by’imishahara y’ukwezi kwa kane biraba byakemutse.”

On World Cancer Day, UN says ‘goal must be equitable access for all patients, in all countries’

Women line up at the Kanungu Health Centre IV in Uganda to receive HIV and cervical cancer counselling and testing.

4 February 2015

As the international community pauses on World Cancer Day to remember the millions of preventable deaths caused by the disease, the head of the UN agency that contributes nuclear techniques to fight cancer said today that a huge percentage of the world’s cancer deaths occurring in developing countries can be prevented.

“The goal must be equitable access for all patients, in all countries, to the highest standards of cancer care, regardless of their country’s level of development,” said Yukiya Amano, Director General of the UN Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

“Around 70 percent of the world’s cancer deaths occur in developing countries. Many of those deaths could be prevented if the right facilities, and trained staff, were available,” he told an IAEA-hosted event in Vienna, Austria, marking World Cancer Day to demonstrate that cancer control is ‘Not Beyond Us’ – slogan of this year’s campaign.

To mark the occasion of World Cancer Day, which is marked each year on 4 February, the IAEA’s Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT) hosted a roundtable panel discussion with notable speakers from around the world to address some of the issues regarding comprehensive cancer control in developing countries.

IAEA also focused on the growing problem of cancer in Afghanistan.

“Like in most developing countries around the whole world, cancer is a growing problem in Afghanistan saidthe agency in a news release describing how it is helping the country to establish a cancer care centre with in-patient and out-patient facilities that include oncology services.

The first and second phases of the project will focus on the population of Kabul and the area surrounding the capital, which is estimated to benefit millions of people.

The IAEA, best known for its work as a the UN nuclear watchdog, said it has been working for decades with a global network of partners such as the UN World Health Organization (WHO) to help countries establish comprehensive cancer control programmes that cover diagnosis, treatment and palliative care.

According to the Geneva-based World Health Organization (WHO), there are 14 million new cases of cancer and over 8 million people die from cancer every year, with 60 per cent of deaths in Africa, Asia and Central and South America.

This year, WHO held a Twitter chat with its cancer expert as part of its activities to raise awareness, and shined the spotlight to recall that tobacco is the single biggest cause of cancer in the world and the leading cause of preventable deaths.

“Every year, 8.2 million people die from cancer; at least 1.6 million or 20% of these are tobacco-related. In total, more than 6 million people will die this year from tobacco-related diseases including cardiovascular diseases, chronic lung diseases and cancer,” wrote Dr. Vera Luiza da Costa e Silva, Head of the Convention Secretariat, Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.

She noted that “televisions, billboards and magazines were covered in advertisements glorifying smoking. Concerts and sporting events were places for the tobacco industry to hand out free products and branded promotional items.

“On World Cancer Day, we must recommit to further reduce tobacco use so that a tobacco-free world becomes a reality,” she said.

And the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) said nearly half of cancer deaths in the Americas are premature, yet many could be prevented by public policies that support healthy lifestyles and early detection and treatment.

World Cancer Day, organized by the Union for International Cancer Control is an opportunity to highlight the wide range of actions needed to effectively prevent, treat and control the many forms of cancer.

“Ebola and AIDS are bio weapons being tested on Africans” Scientists allege.

Scientists allege deadly diseases such as Ebola and AIDS are bio weapons being tested on Africans. Other reports have linked the Ebola virus outbreak to an attempt to reduce Africa’s population. Liberia happens to be the continents’s fastest growing population.

Scientists Allege
By:
Dr. Cyril Broderick, Professor of Plant Pathology

Dear World Citizens:

I have read a number of articles from your Internet outreach as well as articles from other sources about the casualties in Liberia and other West African countries about the human devastation caused by the Ebola virus. About a week ago, I read an article published in the Internet news summary publication of the Friends of Liberia that said that there was an agreement that the initiation of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was due to the contact of a two-year old child with bats that had flown in from the Congo. That report made me disconcerted with the reporting about Ebola, and it stimulated a response to the “Friends of Liberia,” saying that African people are not ignorant and gullible, as is being implicated. A response from Dr. Verlon Stone said that the article was not theirs, and that “Friends of Liberia” was simply providing a service. He then asked if he could publish my letter in their Internet forum. I gave my permission, but I have not seen it published. Because of the widespread loss of life, fear, physiological trauma, and despair among Liberians and other West African citizens, it is incumbent that I make a contribution to the resolution of this devastating situation, which may continue to recur, if it is not properly and adequately confronted. I will address the situation in five (5) points:
1.    EBOLA IS A GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISM (GMO)
Horowitz (1998) was deliberate and unambiguous when he explained the threat of new diseases in his text, Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola – Nature, Accident or Intentional. In his interview with Dr. Robert Strecker in Chapter 7, the discussion, in the early 1970s, made it obvious that the war was between countries that hosted the KGB and the CIA, and the ‘manufacture’ of ‘AIDS-Like Viruses’ was clearly directed at the other. In passing during the Interview, mention was made of Fort Detrick, “the Ebola Building,” and ‘a lot of problems with strange illnesses’ in “Frederick [Maryland].” By Chapter 12 in his text, he had confirmed the existence of an American Military-Medical-Industry that conducts biological weapons tests under the guise of administering vaccinations to control diseases and improve the health of “black Africans overseas.” The book is an excellent text, and all leaders plus anyone who has interest in science, health, people, and intrigue should study it. I am amazed that African leaders are making no acknowledgements or reference to these documents.
2.  EBOLA HAS A TERRIBLE HISTORY, AND TESTING HAS BEEN SECRETLY TAKING PLACE IN AFRICA
I am now reading The Hot Zone, a novel, by Richard Preston (copyrighted 1989 and 1994); it is heart-rending. The prolific and prominent writer, Steven King, is quoted as saying that the book is “One of the most horrifying things I have ever read. What a remarkable piece of work.” As a New York Times bestseller, The Hot Zone is presented as “A terrifying true story.” Terrifying, yes, because the pathological description of what was found in animals killed by the Ebola virus is what the virus has been doing to citizens of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia in its most recent outbreak: Ebola virus destroys peoples’ internal organs and the body deteriorates rapidly after death. It softens and the tissues turn into jelly, even if it is refrigerated to keep it cold. Spontaneous liquefaction is what happens to the body of people killed by the Ebola virus! The author noted in Point 1, Dr. Horowitz, chides The Hot Zone for writing to be politically correct; I understand because his book makes every effort to be very factual. The 1976 Ebola incident in Zaire, during President Mobutu Sese Seko, was the introduction of the GMO Ebola to Africa.
3.    SITES AROUND AFRICA, AND IN WEST AFRICA, HAVE OVER THE YEARS BEEN SET UP FOR TESTING EMERGING DISEASES, ESPECIALLY EBOLA
The World Health Organization (WHO) and several other UN Agencies have been implicated in selecting and enticing African countries to participate in the testing events, promoting vaccinations, but pursuing various testing regiments. The August 2, 2014 article, West Africa: What are US Biological Warfare Researchers Doing in the Ebola Zone? by Jon Rappoport of Global Research pinpoints the problem that is facing African governments.
Obvious in this and other reports are, among others:
(a) The US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), a well-known centre for bio-war research, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland;
(b) Tulane University, in New Orleans, USA, winner of research grants, including a grant of more than $7 million the National Institute of Health (NIH) to fund research with the Lassa viral hemorrhagic fever;
(c) the US Center for Disease Control (CDC);
(d) Doctors Without Borders (also known by its French name, Medecins Sans Frontiers);
(e) Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company;
(f) The UK’s GlaxoSmithKline; and
(g) the Kenema Government Hospital in Kenema, Sierra Leone.
Reports narrate stories of the US Department of Defense (DoD) funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March. Disturbingly, many reports also conclude that the US government has a viral fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Kenema, a town at the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The only relevant positive and ethical olive-branch seen in all of my reading is that Theguardian.com reported, “The US government funding of Ebola trials on healthy humans comes amid warnings by top scientists in Harvard and Yale that such virus experiments risk triggering a worldwide pandemic.” That threat still persists.
4.    THE NEED FOR LEGAL ACTION TO OBTAIN REDRESS FOR DAMAGES INCURRED DUE TO THE PERPETUATION OF INJUSTICE IN THE DEATH, INJURY AND TRAUMA IMPOSED ON LIBERIANS AND OTHER AFRICANS BY THE EBOLA AND OTHER DISEASE AGENTS. 
The U. S., Canada, France, and the U. K. are all implicated in the detestable and devilish deeds that these Ebola tests are. There is the need to pursue criminal and civil redress for damages, and African countries and people should secure legal representation to seek damages from these countries, some corporations, and the United Nations. Evidence seems abundant against Tulane University, and suits should start there. Yoichi Shimatsu’s article, The Ebola Breakout Coincided with UN Vaccine Campaigns, as published on August 18, 2014, in the Liberty Beacon.
5.   AFRICAN LEADERS AND AFRICAN COUNTRIES NEED TO TAKE THE LEAD IN DEFENDING BABIES, CHILDREN, AFRICAN WOMEN, AFRICAN MEN, AND THE ELDERLY. THESE CITIZENS DO NOT DESERVE TO BE USED AS GUINEA PIGS! 
Africa must not relegate the Continent to become the locality for disposal and the deposition of hazardous chemicals, dangerous drugs, and chemical or biological agents of emerging diseases. There is urgent need for affirmative action in protecting the less affluent of poorer countries, especially African citizens, whose countries are not as scientifically and industrially endowed as the United States and most Western countries, sources of most viral or bacterial GMOs that are strategically designed as biological weapons. It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone. Are there others? Wherever they exist, it is time to terminate them. If any other sites exist, it is advisable to follow the delayed but essential step: Sierra Leone closed the US bioweapons lab and stopped Tulane University for further testing.
The world must be alarmed. All Africans, Americans, Europeans, Middle Easterners, Asians, and people from every conclave on Earth should be astonished. African people, notably citizens more particularly of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone are victimized and are dying every day. Listen to the people who distrust the hospitals, who cannot shake hands, hug their relatives and friends. Innocent people are dying, and they need our help. The countries are poor and cannot afford the whole lot of personal protection equipment (PPE) that the situation requires. The threat is real, and it is larger than a few African countries. The challenge is global, and we request assistance from everywhere, including China, Japan, Australia, India, Germany, Italy, and even kind-hearted people in the U.S., France, the U.K., Russia, Korea, Saudi Arabia, and anywhere else whose desire is to help. The situation is bleaker than we on the outside can imagine, and we must provide assistance however we can. To ensure a future that has less of this kind of drama, it is important that we now demand that our leaders and governments be honest, transparent, fair, and productively engaged. They must answer to the people. Please stand up to stop Ebola testing and the spread of this dastardly disease.
Thank you very much.
Sincerely,
Dr. Cyril E. Broderick, Sr.

Plainte contre le vaccin du cancer du col de l’utérus

downloadUne jeune femme, originaire d’Aquitaine, a déposé une plainte visant Sanofi Pasteur et l’Agence nationale de sécurité du médicament pour de graves effets secondaires liés selon elle au vaccin Gardasil contre le cancer du col de l’utérus, a indiqué aujourd’hui son avocat.

Me Jean-Christophe Coubris, par ailleurs avocat de victimes de l’antidiabétique Mediator, a indiqué à l’AFP avoir déposé une plainte simple vendredi auprès du parquet du tribunal de Bobigny (Seine-Saint-Denis) pour “atteinte involontaire à l’intégrité de la personne humaine”, confirmant une information de Sud Ouest Dimanche et du Journal du dimanche.

Après deux injections de vaccin Gardasil en octobre puis en décembre 2010, la jeune femme, âgée de 18 ans aujourd’hui, a été hospitalisée à plusieurs reprises en 2011, à Dax (Landes) après des vertiges et vomissements, puis au CHU de Bordeaux, après avoir souffert d’une perte de la vue, de la marche et de paralysie faciale notamment.

D’autres cas saisis

Après un an son état s’est stabilisé en août 2012, mais présente une fatigabilité persistante gênant sa scolarité.

Selon Sud Ouest, une double expertise commandée par la Commission d’indemnisation des accidents médicaux d’Aquitaine a conclu à un “lien de causalité” entre l’injection de Gardasil et une “réaction inflammatoire aiguë du système nerveux central”, qui après la deuxième injection a “décompensé un processus immunitaire”. L’expertise estime que les incidents inflammatoires de la jeune patiente présentent “tous les caractères objectifs d’imputabilité médico-légale”.

L’utilité du vaccin contre le cancer contre le col de l’utérus a régulièrement fait débat en France, où des patientes ont déjà saisi des commissions régionales d’indemnisation des accidents médicaux, pour des effets secondaires liés selon elles au Gardasil, commercialisé par Sanofi pour Merck.

En mars 2012, un groupe d’études de l’Assemblée nationale sur la vaccination avait recommandé “une recherche approfondie sur l’efficacité et les effets du vaccin”.

Selon l’InVS, moins d’un tiers des adolescentes françaises étaient en 2011 vaccinées contre le cancer du col de l’utérus, 12e cancer le plus fréquent chez les femmes (plus de 2800 personnes atteintes en 2011, 1000 décès).

Une personne meurt de diabète chaque six secondes- Une recherche révèle.

images

Le nombre de personnes souffrant de diabète a atteint cette année le record de 382 millions, contre 371 millions en 2012, ont déclaré aujourd’hui des experts médicaux.

Une grande majorité de ces personnes souffrent du diabète de type 2, lié à l’obésité et au manque d’exercice, et la maladie se propage à mesure que les populations du monde en développement adoptent le mode de vie urbain occidental.

La dernière estimation en date de la Fédération internationale du diabète (FID), rendue publique à l’occasion de la journée mondiale du diabète, équivaut à un taux de prévalence mondial de 8,4% de la population adulte. A l’horizon 2035, selon les prévisions de la FID, le nombre de malades aura bondi de 55%, à 592 millions.

“La bataille pour préserver les populations du diabète et de ses complications invalidantes et dangereuses, est en train d’être perdue”, déclare la fédération dans la sixième édition de son Atlas du diabète, en faisant remarquer que le nombre de personnes mourant du diabète est désormais de 5,1 millions par an, soit une personne toutes les six secondes.
