Deputy Secretary Sullivan To Visit South Africa and Angola
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, John Sullivan is visiting South Africa and Angola this week. Although the aim is to strengthen bilateral relations with the two countries, it is believed when he meets with South Africa, the contentious Venezuela vote in the United Nations will come up.
South Africa voted against a US resolution in the UN Security Council that Venezuela’s opposition leader, Juan Guaido, should be recognized as president until elections are held. In other words, South Africa voted against removing Nicolas Maduro as Venezuelan president.
On the Angolan side, the U.S. commends the country’s new President Joao Lourenco for stamping out corruption. Sullivan will also discuss strengthening bilateral ties with the nation.
Kenya: Fire Razes Section Of Toi Market In Kibera
A huge fire has razed a section of Toi market in Kibera, some seven kilometers from Nairobi’s central business district.
Witnesses say the fire broke out at about 3a.m. local time on Tuesday and, within three hours, it had reduced to ashes property worth millions of shillings.
At the same time, the flames had spread fast. Shanties, including those in residential areas, were said to have smouldered after being burnt to the ground.
The open-air market, famous for used clothes, fresh produce, artefacts and toys, is located on the outskirts of Kibera Slum, one of the biggest informal settlements in Africa.
The market is a meeting place for thousands of buyers and sellers, but it has suffered devastating fire incidents every year since 2014.
