    False Claim Of Vibranium Being Discovered In DR Congo

    Twitter is now being used by some Africans, including those from Nigeria, to distribute false information.

    The January 21 tweet, which was liked over 41,000 times in a few hours, claims electrically charged stones were discovered in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and many of the followers suggest vibranium.

    The claim is wrong. Vibranium is not real, according to Wikipedia Vibranium is a fictional metal that appears in the Marvel Comics universe, specifically in the world of the Black Panther. It is portrayed as having various superhuman properties, such as the ability to absorb and store energy. It is not a real metal and does not exist in the real world. The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is known for its mineral wealth, including coltan, cobalt, copper, gold, and tin among others.

    To identify the component that might be powering the light, MandyNews.com looked into the viral video.

    The investigation team at Mandy News deemed the claim incorrect.

    However, at least some people in western countries who quoted the report confirmed that the stone is not vibranium.

    Based on the information we have currently, it is possible that the element in question could be among the minerals found in the Democratic Republic of Congo such as coltan, cobalt, copper, gold, and tin, but it is uncertain at this time.

    Cobalt is a chemical element with the symbol Co and atomic number 27. It is a hard, silver-gray metal that is commonly used in the production of batteries, magnets, and high-strength alloys. It is also used in the production of pigments and catalysts. Cobalt is found in various minerals, including cobaltite and erythrite, and is primarily mined in Africa and Canada. Similar to coltan, cobalt mining in the DRC has been linked to human rights abuses and environmental degradation.

    Coltan is a metallic ore from which the elements niobium and tantalum are extracted. Niobium and tantalum have a variety of industrial and technological uses, including in the production of electronic devices such as smartphones and laptops. Coltan mining is primarily done in Africa, and has been associated with human rights violations and environmental degradation.

    Coltan is found in several African countries, including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and Tanzania. However, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is believed to have the largest deposits of coltan in Africa, and is currently the world’s leading producer of the mineral. The DRC has been plagued by conflict and human rights abuses, with various armed groups and militias controlling and profiting from the illegal trade of coltan and other minerals.

    Neither cobalt nor coltan can be electrically charged. Cobalt is a chemical element and coltan is a metallic ore, which are made of atoms and molecules that do not have the ability to hold an electrical charge. However, both cobalt and coltan are used in the production of electronic devices and have conductive properties which make it useful in conducting electricity. Cobalt is used in the production of batteries, magnets and high-strength alloys, and coltan is used in the production of electronic devices such as smartphones and laptops, specifically in the production of capacitors and transistors which are used to control the flow of electricity.

    Based on our research, we rate false the claim that Vibranium was found in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

    The purpose of this article, however, is not to discuss the main element, but rather to disprove the assertion that Vibranium has been discovered in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

    New Year Greetings from Tanzanians in Diaspora

    As the world celebrates the start of the new calendar year 2023, Tanzanians in the diaspora are sending messages of goodwill to their fellow countrymen.

    A new year opens the doors to new opportunities, new beginnings, and growth. The Tanzanian Diaspora Council sees a positive future ahead, and here we have insights from Tanzanians in Sweden, New Zealand and Norway.

    On behalf of the Tanzania Global Diaspora Council (TDC - Global) for which I serve as Financial Secretary, I hereby send a New Year goodwill message to Tanzanians throughout the world. I also wish to use this medium to send special New Year wishes and thanks to our government in Tanzania, under the able leadership of Her Excellency Dr. Samia Suluhu Hassan for the hard work they have put in to ensure that Tanzania remains an icon of a country. peaceful and democratic state

    For our part, as diasporas, we are happy to say that we have a close working relationship with the government and are patiently awaiting, among other things, the establishment of a special status policy that will open more doors to help Tanzanians in the diaspora and their generations. to contribute smoothly to the development of our homeland. We have high hopes that our government will work on it in the year 2023.

    The year 2022 has been difficult, as the whole world is still facing the harsh remnants of the 2020 Covid-19 outbreak, as well as the socio-economic effects of the recent Russo-Ukrainian war. These things have greatly destabilized the world economy and social life, and many countries have been affected.

    It is my great hope that the year 2023 will become a good story to tell, for everyone and for our beloved country Tanzania. It remains our commitment at the Tanzania Global Diaspora Council, just as it was at our inception in 2018, to bring Tanzanians living abroad and abroad together and unite our efforts to drive growth and development at home. and help our people.

    It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to wish all my fellow Tanzanians a Happy New Year. As we celebrate the New Year, it is important to reflect on our nation's socio-economic background and continue to strive for better socio-economic improvements for the benefit of all Tanzanians. In this context, it is worth noting that the enlightened and globally informed leadership of President Samia Suluhu Hassan has been unequivocal in recognizing the potential contributions that the Tanzanian diaspora can make to the socio-economic development of our homeland. As the Tanzanian diaspora lives in different countries and continents, effective diaspora engagement and coordination is imperative.

    My experience in New Zealand and elsewhere suggests that continuous improvement at both the individual and organizational levels, including nation states, is essential to promote socio-economic development. The importance of continuous improvement applies equally to Tanzania. The Tanzanian diaspora, drawing on their varied experience and exposure, can share current research knowledge and practice with our homeland, to promote continuous improvement in trade, foreign direct investment, entrepreneurship and new knowledge transfer. and skills. The Chinese diaspora community helped a lot in making China a world-ranking science nation. The Tanzanian diaspora can do something similar. Some examples of possible contributions below, to improve things, are indicative.

    Like Tanzania, agriculture and animal husbandry are important to the New Zealand economy. Over the years, New Zealand has used science and technology to improve agricultural and livestock productivity. For example, New Zealand's dairy industry, with around 5 million cows, contributes around NZ$19 billion to the national economy annually, which is equivalent to around shillings 28 trillion. While there are unique circumstances that may explain some of the differences in dairy productivity, there are knowledge-based indirect factors that can be shared with relevant officials back home. The goal is to improve dairy productivity in Tanzania by taking advantage of current communications technology. Similar improvements can be achieved in trading. I buy cashews from supermarkets in New Zealand that are known to be from Tanzania, but cashews come to New Zealand from other countries, especially Vietnam. It should be possible for our farmers to coordinate to get more value by exporting direct to New Zealand. At present, intermediaries from other countries take a part and reduce the income of our farmers.

    In employment, there is demand for employees of all categories in New Zealand and other developed countries. Again, effective diaspora engagement and coordination and harnessing current technology can contribute to improved employment prospects, skill acquisition, and socio-economic improvements for our brothers and sisters back home. If the Chinese, the Indians and increasingly the Kenyans, etc. can benefit from global job markets and educational possibilities, why not more Tanzanians? Let us hope that 2023 will make a difference in realizing the government's diaspora pledge by granting the long-awaited special status to the Tanzanian diaspora.

    I'm Sarah Mwakisu Pettersson and I'm a nursing assistant specializing in the care of the elderly and children with autism and epilepsy, I live and work in Oslo, Norway. Norway is popular for its supply of oil, gas and fish industries. Norway has a high demand for workers in the healthcare sector and there are numerous incentives to encourage young people to work in the sector, including increased pensions.

    Living in Norway, I have seen that emphasis is placed on health and well-being and people are encouraged to have regular medical check-ups, and also to be open to the respective needs of children who are unwell. At home, we need more health education and awareness so that people are no longer ashamed of being sick or disabled. Our people with disabilities deserve adequate and dignified attention, like all other people.

    The cost of living in Norway is high and the war has caused it to rise even higher. It is possible to get a job in Norway, but there is a lot of scrutiny to check the educational quality or skill level of applicants from other countries. This was made more difficult by numerous applicants in the past who had false educational credentials. However, there are more study opportunities and research scholarships for young people in Tanzania to take advantage of, some of which are fully funded and free of charge.

    As a Tanzanian living abroad, I am proud of my roots and find great interest in creating a good learning environment for children. I am grateful that we were able to improve the infrastructure of Majengo Primary School, in Mbeya, specifically through the construction of toilets and classrooms.

    I wish my fellow Tanzanians a prosperous New Year. Let's keep working hard, one day we will achieve our dream. We are good enough and inferior to no one. The change we want is a phenomenon we must believe in before we can make it happen, and it requires a collective effort. Our work towards change is an investment for generations to come.

    Following Monday's demolition of Cameroon in the ongoing International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup Africa sub-regional B Qualifier, Nigeria's Yellow Greens are now set for a top-of-the-table showdown with Tanzania in the series that takes place in Rwanda.

    The victory over Cameroon saw the Yellow-Greens go five out of five in the competition, which began with victories over Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Eswatini and The Gambia.

    The match against Tanzania will take place today at the Gahanaga International Cricket Stadium in Kigali.

    Both teams have a clean slate on the event so far, so the game will determine who tops the qualifying round before their final matches tomorrow.

    Nigeria is ranked 43rd in the ICC T20i Rankings behind Tanzania which is ranked 31st in the world ranking record.

    Nigeria's last game is against their West African rival Ghana, who unfortunately have not had a good run in the event with a win and three straight losses so far.

    Former Nigerian captain and player representative on the Nigerian Cricket Federation (NCF) board of directors Endurance Ofem believes the Nigerian side still have a thing or two to show for their next two matches.

    “The team may be doing well, however I think we haven't seen the best of talent represented.

    I think against Tanzania, hoping some players have had enough rest, we can see the manager (Steve Tikolo) make some changes that will show us a different side of the team.

    This is an interesting assembly of cricket talent.

    Monday's game against Cameroon was decided by Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) limited by calculation method when rain washed away the game in the second innings.

    The DLS favored the Nigerian side who had registered 31 runs in five overs, holding the Cameroonians to 72 runs and all in 19.

    4 overs.

    Nigeria captain Sylvester Okpe was man of the match as he dispatched five batsmen in the match.

    Speaking after the match, Okpe said: “We had chosen to play when we saw the possibility that the weather conditions would not go well earlier in the day.

    So, everything worked out well in our favor.

    Nigeria closer to 2024 Cricket World Cup with wins in Kigali

    Nigeria, yesterday in Kigali, improved its chances of qualifying for the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup with its fourth victory in the Africa sub-regional B Qualifier.

    Coached by Steve Tikolo, the country defeated Eswatini and Gambia to complement their previous victories over Mozambique and West African rival Sierra Leone in their opening meetings.

    Team captain Sylvester Okpe said his team is confident of qualifying with his run so far in the first stage of the Cricket World Cup 2024.

    “We had a plan for this event and we are on the right track.

    Barring major injuries and distractions, I am confident that we will choose one of the two tickets here for the next stage,” he said.

    In the win against Eswatini, the team set three new international records, including the highest T20i score for Nigeria in any international game (221/7), the highest runs by a Nigerian batsman in T20i (Ashmit Shreshta: 76 runs in 49 balls) and the fastest T20i half-century for the country (Isaac Okpe: 53/17).

    Thrilled by the team's feat, Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF) President Uyi Akpata said the boys are well invested in them, adding that he is confident the senior men's national team still has much to offer on the international stage.

    “We are proud of the team's performance so far and the pace at which they have been driven has been very commendable, especially the improvements in the hitting department, which we have been working on and can now see practical improvements,” he said.

    Nigeria had beaten Mozambique by eight wickets and edged out Sierra Leone on Friday by six wickets.

    The record win over Eswatini was by 118 runs, while Gambia's win was by nine runs.

    Nigeria's next match will be against Cameroon today, while on Thursday and Friday they will face Ghana and Tanzania, respectively.

    “This event is feedback on the various levels of investment that the Nigerian Cricket Federation has channeled into bases and infrastructure across the country.

    “Nigeria has six standard courses which has reduced our need to tour abroad before major events like this and this gives us encouragement that we are on the right track with our development agenda,” Akpata said.

    UNAIDS report says inequalities undermine AIDS response

    - Dangerous inequities are undermining the AIDS response and jeopardizing the health security of all, according to a new report issued by the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and launched in the Tanzanian capital, Dar es Salaam, ahead of World AIDS Day which is celebrated on December 1st.

    Titled "Dangerous Inequalities," the report reveals the impacts that gender inequalities, inequalities faced by key populations, as well as inequalities between children and adults, have had on the AIDS response.

    According to the report, every two minutes, an adolescent girl or young woman (15-24 years old) contracted HIV in 2021, yet in 19 high-burden countries in Africa, dedicated combination prevention programs for adolescent girls and young women are operating in only 40 percent of high-incidence locations.

    The report shows how world leaders can address these inequalities and calls for the need to strengthen international cooperation and solidarity.

    "The world is not on track to end the AIDS pandemic as new infections rise and AIDS deaths continue in too many communities," UNAIDS Executive Director Winnie Byanyima said on Tuesday.

    "Inequalities are blocking the end of the AIDS pandemic," Byanyima said. "Through bold action to address these inequalities, we can end AIDS."

    Byanyima praised Tanzania's leadership and political will in the fight against AIDS, saying the East African nation has been able to reduce new AIDS infections by 47 percent and AIDS deaths by 50 percent in the past last 10 years.

    "Tanzania is a leader in the fight against AIDS, and this is one of the reasons why the UNAIDS report is being launched in the country," he said.

    UNAIDS is leading the global effort to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030 as part of the sustainable development goals. ■

    United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and European Union (EU) upcoming report on Improving the Ecosystem for Urban Finance in Africa Through Case Studies of Cameroon, Tanzania and Togo

    The European Union, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the United Nations Capital Development Fund are thought leaders in defining the development dimension of urban finance in Africa.

    Watch this space for the upcoming publication of the report on improving the ecosystem for urban finance in Africa through case studies of Cameroon, Tanzania and Togo. The context: The report on the Africa Urban Finance Ecosystem responds to the European Union (EU) contract of 01/10/2021.Following a competitive process, the contract was awarded to the UN Capital Development Fund – the United Nations Hub for Sub National Finance.

    The European Parliament, the European Commission (EC) and UN Habitat jointly produced the flagship Financing Sustainable Urban Development Report in 2021.The European Investment Bank included a chapter entitled in the 2020 Banking in Africa report (Chapter 7 “Investing Sustainably in Africa’s Cities”).

    UNCDF was a member of the advisory council for the Financing Sustainable Urban Development team and built on these publications with its own volume “Local Government Finance is Development Finance”, which incorporated the Malaga Coalition policy agenda for a global financial ecosystem that works for cities and local governments.

    This policy agenda has been refined through the meetings, podcasts and initiatives of the coalition members – including the EU.

    Table 1 indicates the interface between EU instruments and the Malaga policy coalition.

    The common analysis of the European Union, the European Investment Bank and UNCDF is that financing the sustainable urbanization of Africa corresponds to, inter alia, the following EU policy objectives.

    Productivity and livelihoods: Africa is rapidly urbanizing, and the pace of this urbanization is accelerating.

    Yet to date this has not been accompanied by the concomitant increase in productivity experienced during the urbanization phase in the economic development trajectory of other regions.

    This is partly due to chronic low investment in fixed capital formation.

    The result is low productivity urbanization in growing towns and cities with high levels of unemployment and underemployment.

    Climate change: The effects of climate change are already a serious challenge.

    There will be an increasingly catastrophic impact on African towns and cities unless the world can limit global warming to the 1.5 degrees Celsius target of the 2015 Paris Agreement.

    Significantly increased volumes of investment are required to ensure that expanding the human settlements on the continent can provide a platform for productive, healthy and safe livelihoods, social affairs and economic activities.

    Security and Migration: The failure to address the first two dimensions is already fueling multiple security and migration crises that negatively impact both the European Union and Africa.

    Conflict and migration will continue and will expand in scale unless peaceful, prosperous and stable life opportunities can be provided by African towns and cities for young and aspirational women and men.

    This report was commissioned by the EU to explore the potential and the scope for deploying its development funding and financing toolbox (now expanded to include guarantees) to address the challenges of financing sustainable urbanization as defined in the terms of reference.

    Details of the EU funding and financing toolbox are available on the European Union website.
