Clement Nkurunziza Detained in Burundi FOllowing Depportation from USA

Trump kachachaa! Watu wanafukuzwa USA kila siku. Hali mbaya sana!  Kama una rangi na huna makaratasi ulie tu. Trump na ubaguzi wake hana huruma.  Kama una kosa lolote utaondoshwa.

Huyo inasemekana alishiriki katika mauaji ya waHutu wa Burundi.
Mr. Clément nkurunziza was a leader of the university of Burundi gang that killed over a 1000 university students because they were hutus. The USA should not be a hub for criminals like Clément Nkurunziza. Justice should be served. He should be sent to Burundi immediately to face Justice. 


  KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) - Burundian activists say a man recently deported from the United States after failing to receive political asylum has been detained without charge back home.

   The group iBurundi, which monitors alleged government abuses, says Clement Nkurunziza has had no access to a lawyer since his March 22 arrest.

   Police spokesman Pierre Nkurikiye confirmed Nkurunziza is in custody but gave no details.

   iBurundi says Nkurunziza was arrested after arriving on a plane from the U.S. Over 1,000 people had signed an online petition urging the U.S. not to send Nkurunziza back to Burundi, saying "his life would be in jeopardy."

   Nkurunziza had urged Burundi's president to retire after two terms in 2015. Deadly protests broke out when President Pierre Nkurunziza successfully sought another term. The two men are not related.

   The International Criminal Court judges last year authorized an investigation into allegations of state-sponsored crimes in the East African nation that the U.N. human rights chief recently called one of "the most prolific slaughterhouses of humans in recent times."

Si Rahisi Kwa Mweusi Marekani Kupata Kazi ya Maana!

   BOSTON (AP) - Fifty years after the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King, black Americans are still struggling to gain a foothold in the nation's more prestigious and lucrative professions.

That's according to an Associated Press analysis of government data that found black workers are chronically underrepresented compared with whites in technology, business, life sciences, and engineering, among other occupations. Meanwhile, black are proportionately overrepresented in lower-wage fields, such as food service and maintenance.

In Boston - a hub for technology and innovation - white workers outnumber black ones by about 27-to-1 in computer- and mathematics-related professions, compared with the overall ratio of 9.5-to-1 for workers in the city. King earned his doctorate in Boston in the 1950s.

Experts cite numerous causes, including lack of educational opportunities and systemic discrimination in hiring and promotions.

Ubaguzi Marekani - Weusi Bado Wanabaguliwa!

WASHINGTON (AP) - Fifty years after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., only 1 in 10 African Americans think the United States has achieved all or most of the goals of the civil rights movement he led, according to a new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

   Three-quarters of African Americans said there has been little or no progress on fair treatment by police, and more than half answered the same about fair coverage by the media, political representation or equal economic opportunities.

   Currently, things are steadily "going on a quick downward spiral," said Stephanie Sutton, 42, a Silver Spring, Maryland, housewife who is black. "Inequality touches everything, from work, police, schools, education, income, houses."

   Even when it comes to voting rights - the high point for perceived progress for all of Americans in the poll - just 34 percent of blacks said there has been a lot of progress made toward equality. Another 29 percent said there has been at least some progress.

   "We're going backward to where we're starting to see more black males mostly getting assaulted by police officers unjustly and stuff like that," said Kyla Marshall, 28, of Lansing, Michigan, a state government worker who is black.

   Americans overall were only slightly more optimistic. More than half said major progress has been made toward equal voting rights for African Americans, but just a quarter said there has been a lot of progress in achieving equal treatment by police or the criminal justice system. Among whites, 64 percent think there's been a lot of progress and another 25 percent think there's been minor progress on voting rights, while 28 percent think there's been a lot of progress and 31 percent partial progress toward equality in the criminal justice system.

   The poll found that 30 percent of American adults - 35 percent of whites and just 8 percent of blacks - said all or most of the goals of the 1960s civil rights movement have been achieved. Most of the remainder said partial progress has been achieved.

   "I think the civil rights movement was phenomenal in forcing banks, political systems and educational systems" to change, said Grant Jay Walters, 53, of Hamburg, New York, who is white. "I think it absolutely achieved its goals. I do not think the civil rights movement can go in and change the hearts of men. There's still a lot of racism in the communities and I'm not sure how you can ever make that go away."

   The poll was taken about six weeks ahead of the 50th anniversary of King's death.

   King was shot and killed April 4, 1968, outside his second-?oor room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, by segregationist James Earl Ray. King has since been acknowledged as an American hero for his quest for freedom, justice, equality and peace among all races.

   The poll found only one area - voting rights - where a majority said a lot of progress has been made for racial equality since the civil rights movement. In total, 57 percent of Americans said there has been major progress on equal voting rights, though just 39 percent said there has been major progress on political representation for African Americans.

   Close to half said there has been major progress on reducing segregation in public life - 47 percent - and equal access to good education - 48 percent. About a third said there has been at least some progress in those areas.

   On the lowest end of the spectrum, just 23 percent said there has been a great deal of progress in fair treatment of blacks by police or the criminal justice system, and nearly half said there has been little to no progress in either of those areas.

   Whites were more likely than blacks to think there has been progress in every area asked about in the poll.

   Blacks are "claiming racism but I don't see it myself," said Tommy Romero, 47, of New Iberia, Louisiana, who is white. "They're claiming it but it's all about what they feel about the past, slavery and everything else. That's how I feel."

   Romero said that things overall have gotten much better considering the racism of the past, especially in the South.

   "Things were terrible back then," he said. "The way minorities were treated, drinking at separate fountains, eating at separate restaurants, and sitting on certain parts of the bus, stuff like that, police beating on them, that just made no sense."

   In general, 54 percent of Republicans and just 14 percent of Democrats think most or all of the goals of the civil rights movement have been achieved. That ranged from 76 percent of Republicans and 46 percent of Democrats saying there has been a lot of progress on voting rights, to 43 percent of Republicans and 9 percent of Democrats saying there has been a lot of progress on fair treatment by police.

   Just over half of all Americans  - including 79 percent of blacks and 44 percent of whites - said African Americans continue to face disadvantages to getting ahead in the United States. That's compared with 22 percent who said blacks actually have advantages and 26 percent who said their race makes no difference in getting ahead.

Mahakama ya Kenya yaamuru Mwiko kupima Njia ya Haja Kubwa ya Wanasosikiwa kufanya Ulawiti

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - A Kenyan appeals court on Thursday ruled unlawful the use of forced anal exams to test whether two men had gay sex, which is criminalized in the East African nation.

   The earlier high court decision was unconstitutional and violated human rights, appellate court Judge Alnashir Visram said during the hearing in the coastal city of Mombasa.

   Gay rights advocates cheered the decision, saying forced anal exams amount to torture. The Kenya Medical Association last year condemned their use.

   "The ruling is a tremendous step not only in upholding the dignity of homosexuals who'd been subjected to the indignities of anal examinations but also to the rule of law in Kenya," said Eric Gitari, the executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission.

   The commission represented the two men who were arrested in 2015 on suspicion of being gay and subjected to forced anal exams and HIV tests.

   Human Rights Watch has said Kenya is one of at least eight countries that have used forced anal exams on suspected homosexuals since 2010, along with Cameroon, Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uganda and Zambia.

   The new ruling undoubtedly will have an impact on those countries, Gitari said.

   In Kenya, gay sex faces a penalty of up to 14 years in prison.

   The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities in the East African nation have complained of harassment, which in some cases is violent. Gay people often are ostracized by families and communities and discriminated against when it comes to renting property and finding jobs.

   Kenya's High Court last month began hearing arguments in a case that challenges parts of the penal code seen as targeting the LGBT community. The National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission argues that the sections are in breach of the constitution and deny basic rights by criminalizing consensual same-sex relations between adults.

An Emirates Airline flight attendant died on Wednesday after falling out of a plane while it was parked at the gate in Entebbe, Uganda before a flight.

The female flight attendant was rushed to a nearby hospital alive with injuries to her face and knees but died soon after, the BBC reported.

The details surrounding the fall are unclear at this point and the Ugandan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has launched an investigation into the incident.

However, the CAA did say in a statement that it appeared the Emirates flight attendant opened the emergency door before falling out.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, and we’re providing them with all possible support and care," an Emirates spokeswoman said in a statement to Business Insider. "We will extend our full co-operation to the authorities in their investigation."

The incident occurred on March 14 at Entebbe International Airport as the Emirates crew prepared Flight EK730, a Boeing 777-300ER, for boarding. The Emirates flight to Dubai, United Arab Emirates was delayed for roughly an hour as a result of the fall.

Here is the Emirates statement in its entirety:

"We can confirm that a member of our cabin crew fell from an open door while preparing the aircraft for boarding on flight EK730 from Entebbe on 14 March 2018. The injured crew member was brought to the hospital but unfortunately succumbed to her injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, and we’re providing them with all possible support and care. We will extend our full co-operation to the authorities in their investigation."
