  • This year’s Press Freedom Day has come at a time the world would wish to forget everything else and focus on the Covid-19 pandemic, but everyone needs journalists to know what really is happening. It is during such crises as Covid-19 that the Press is forced to compete with peddlers of fake news that either instil fear in a people or give false hope. The Press has been very instrumental in fact checking. It is also during such crises that governments may take advantage of the near 100 per cent focus on a crisis and pass repressive laws, including those [ ....... ]
  • Africa has been asked to focus more on its health infrastructure as well as the unending effects of climate change to be able to manage emergencies and crises of the Covid-19 magnitude now and in the future.

The speech also covered the recent happenings on Earth Day in Nigeria.   Choji at the same time took pride in the many acts of kindness shown by people from all [ ....... ]
  • Give Climate Change and Covid-19 equal attention to prevent mass killings African governments have been urged to help ensure the green climate fund reaches the grassroots to help give climate change the attention it needs. They have also been called upon to implement the existing laws to tackle the climate crisis that has brought its head even amidst the coronavirus crisis. Speaking on Kenya’s KTN News, in an interview to establish Africa’s readiness to handle crisis of the Covid-19 magnitude when it already has been suffering effects of other calamities, PACJA Executive Director Mithika Mwenda said there was no time [ ....... ]
  • Africa has been put in a tight spot with the emergence of the novel coronavirus that has not only turned every economy in the world upside down, but also halted almost every aspect of it. A webinar hosted by the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance on Africa’s status and position with the Covid-19 pandemic highlighted Africa’s predicaments, having already been the worst hit by the effects of the climate crisis. The webinar themed #AfricaAtCrossroads did not end without the mention of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP26, that was to be hosted by Scotland towards the [ ....... ]
  • The preservation of one of the greatest treasures of what is known to many as the ‘Green City in the Sun’, Nairobi, is at stake. As outlined in what seems to have been a hurriedly published newspaper public notice, the Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) has its eyes set on putting up a five-star hotel in the heart of the Nairobi National Park as outlined in the Park’s draft Management Plan 2020-2030. The notice called for comments from the public, requesting for views on the proposed plan to be submitted to KWS by 19 April 2020, a Sunday, nevertheless. As expected, [ ....... ]
  • The Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA) has called on African states to give the Covid-19 pandemic a greener look and attempt to juggle the two crises with sincerity. Speaking yesterday to mark the Earth Day, the PACJA Executive Director Mithika Mwenda said it would prove difficult in the long run for states to spend so much on mitigation of the Covid-19 pandemic but forget climate change, which has claimed many lives in Africa. He referred to news that at least 48 people had been killed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, after it rained only once. In Kenya, where [ ....... ]
  • Only hours into PACJA’s discussion on Africa’s vulnerable situation with the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic amidst a climate crisis, raging floods and mudslides have left a trail of destruction and deaths in the Rift Valley region of Kenya. Besides displacing 4,000 people, killing at least four and leaving dozens missing, the mudslides happening in a county bordering another where at least 50 people were killed by a landslide last December, has swept homes, schools, churches and a police post, besides killing livestock and destroying crop. This would not be anyone’s wish, not even on their worst enemy. More [ ....... ]
