Uhuru Orders Water, Sanitation to be Compulsory Subjects in Schools

President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that primary and secondary school children need an early introduction to the best practices in water usage.

He said teaching children at an early stage will help to avoid wastage and pollution.

Uhuru’s speech was read by Deputy President William Ruto during the official opening of Water and Sanitation Conference, held at the KICC on Tuesday.

“In this regard, I am directing the Ministry of Education to introduce a compulsory curriculum on water and sanitation in all schools,” Uhuru said.

He expressed concern that the rate of increasing access to water and sanitation services has been slow.

The President said the current access to clean safe water was 62 percent while average national sewerage coverage stood at 25 percent.

A schoolgirl in Zimbabwe has wrestled a large crocodile by jumping on its back and gouging its eyes to save her friend from the grasp of the reptile, reports said.

According to reports, a 9-year-old girl, Latoya Muwani, was attacked by a crocodile while swimming with her friends in Sinderela village.

Her friend, Rebecca Munkombwe, jumped on the back of the crocodile when she heard Latoya’s screams as the reptile was pulling her away.

“I was eldest among all the children who were swimming. Hence, I felt the urge to save her,” she said.

Reports said the crocodile had grabbed Latoya by her hand and leg. On noticing that, Rebecca began wrestling the reptile and kept on gouging its eyes till its grip on her girl was loosened.

“Once Latoya was free, I swam with her to the banks. The crocodile did not attack us again,” she said.

Rebecca was not injured but her friend was taken to a hospital for treatment.

A nurse told a local media outlet that Latoya sustained mild injuries.

President Buhari Under Fire over Plan to Regulate Social Media in Nigeria

Presiding Pastor of the Awaiting The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ Gospel Church, Adewale Giwa, has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari government’s plans to regulate the use of social media in Nigeria.

Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, on Tuesday, said the federal government is working on regulating social media.

In a statement sent on Wednesday, Giwa noted that criticism is a price of leadership and any leader who does not want to be criticized cannot lead successfully.

He specifically reminded president Buhari that he came to power in 2015 through propaganda and criticisms on social media.

“You can’t plan to regulate the powerful tool that brought you to power in 2015.

“Has he forgotten so soon that social media played a prominent role in electing him into the office in 2015?

“They first tried it through a Senator representing Kebbi South Senatorial District, Bala ibn Na’ Allah but didn’t work. I can tell you that their plan won’t stand.

“If not social media, this government would have caged the people. Where would they start from?

“In America, people criticize Trump on a daily basis without intimidation. A good leader admits all blame and looking for ways to make the people smile,” said Giwa.
