Congo orders telecoms shutdown during presidential vote | Reuters

BRAZZAVILLE Congo Republic's government has ordered the country's two largest telecommunications providers to block all communication during a presidential election on Sunday for security reasons, a government source said on Saturday. The decision will cause inconvenience and possible alarm in a country where many rely on cell phone communication and a prominent government critic said it would impede the work of election monitors. President Denis Sassou Nguesso is expected to extend his long rule in the oil-producing nation by defeating eight opponents, including retired General Jean-Marie Mokoko who is seen as the strongest challenger #United States #Business #Italy #Zambia #opinion

South Africa's Rainbow Nation turns dark as immigrant attacks rise | Reuters

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - When he heard angry screams and the hammering of hatchets on the door of his shack last week, Malawian Folias Sakai thought he was about to become the eighth person to be killed in anti-immigrant attacks that have swept South Africa this month. Instead Sakai managed to escape the mob by scrambling over the metal rooftop of his shack in a Johannesburg slum into the safety of a nearby alleyway. "They were going to kill us,” said Sakai’s Zimbabwean friend Tendayi Chimukako, who helped him escape. #Politics #Economy #France #Middle East #science #markets #South Africa #United Kingdom #Zimbabwe #Entertainment #Zambia #opinion
