Mozambique Residents Evacuated After Floods

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Mozambique has collaborated with the government to assist in the evacuation of residents affected by the heavy rains.

Mozambican authorities say they have evacuated about 3 000 families affected by floods to higher ground, since yesterday.

UNDP's humanitarian coordinating officer in Mozambique, Casimiro Sande, says the flooding is caused by the high rain fall recorded in South Africa and other countries as Mozambique is in a downstream.

At least 40 people have been killed since the start of the rains.

Anti-Poaching Partnerships for Mozambique

According to a report by the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), an international NGO devoted to conservation, Mozambique scores in the worst category for the slaughtering of elephants and rhino for ivory even though it does not have an indigenous rhino.

In their comment on WPR website, Dr. Joan Johnson-Freese, a professor of national security affairs at the Naval War College in Newport and Larry McCabe, former United States Navy officer, Larry McCabe, says the country is merely a useful transit route because of the government’s inability to stop the illegal traffic.

CSOs Want Political Parties Off the CNE

Mozambican civil society is by and large in favour of removing all political party appointees from the country’s National Elections Commission (CNE).

That is one of the conclusions of research undertaken by the Mozambican NGO, Centre for Democracy and Development Studies (CEDE) in cooperation with the German Konrad Adenhauer Foundation.

Presenting the results of the project at a meeting in Maputo, CEDE suggested slimming down the CNE from 13 to seven members, none of whom would come from political parties.

Communications engineers have adapted office printers and cellphone technology to wirelessly and immediately relay AIDS test results.

Britain's Sequoia Technology Group and Telit Wireless say that the printers are being rolled out elsewhere in Africa after initial success in Mozambique, where the project has been running for a year.

Telit’s Phillip Collins points out that his company's technology is more often used for monitoring electricity meters than saving lives.

NGO Volunteers All-African Games

The Mozambique Red Cross Society (MRCS) has partnered with the government's ministry of youth and sport to provide first aid assistance to athletes during the 10th All-Africa Games.

"The recently acquired ten ambulances have put the Mozambique Red Cross Society in a better position to be a strategic partner in these All Africa Games," says Américo José Ubisse, MRCS secretary-general.
