Efforts To Evacuate 12 Kenyans From Afghanistan Underway - Foreign Affairs Minister Reveals

Three out of 12 Kenyans stuck in Afghanistan have been evacuated, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs says.

One arrived in the country on Wednesday, while two others are expected to land on Thursday evening, August 19.

The Kenyan Government said the 12 citizens were working for international organisations in the foreign nation.

“Through diplomatic channels, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote to the concerned organisations with a clear request to evacuate stranded Kenyans as a matter of urgency,” the ministry said.

Kenya has no diplomatic relations nor accreditation in Afghanistan, but has reached out to its allies closer to the Middle-East nation, to gather more information on any of its citizens stranded therein.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Kenya High Commission in Islamabad, Pakistan which is the nearest Mission to Afghanistan has reached out to our allies to get information of any stranded Kenyans and prospects of evacuation,” it added.

Earlier in the week, Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Amb. Macharia Kamau told local media that Kenyans working in Afghanistan will be evacuated by their employers.

“The country has been unstable for a long while, and we do not expect Kenyans to have gone to this country,” he said in an interview with Daily Nation.

The Taliban took control of Afghanistan, capturing major cities and occupying the presidential palace. President Ashraf Ghani fled the country as the insurgents entered Kabul virtually unopposed, saying he wanted to avoid bloodshed.

Thousands are still fleeing the capital Kabul as several Western nations continue to evacuate their citizens.

His copy was unmistakably dazed by the deed of Kuami Eugene and uncovered he has never seen such cash and contemplated whether it is legal to use in Ghana.

The presenters and panelists on the show all applauded and communicated appreciation to Kuami Eugene for what he did.

Kuami Eugene then, at that point, took pictures with his copy who looked actually like one another.

From the composition to the haircut and method of dressing, they strike some resemblance.

BREAKING: South Africa’s Final Apartheid-Era President Dies Age 85

FW de Klerk, the former president of South Africa and the last white man to lead the country, has died at the age of 85.

Mr de Klerk, who was also a key figure in the nation’s transition to democracy, had been diagnosed with cancer this year, a spokesman said.

Mr de Klerk was head of state between September 1989 and May 1994.

In 1990 he announced he was releasing anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela, leading to multi-party polls in 1994.

A statement from the former president’s FW de Klerk Foundation on Thursday morning read: “Former President FW de Klerk died peacefully at his home in Fresnaye (Cape Town) earlier this morning following his struggle against mesothelioma cancer.”

The foundation had announced the diagnosis – a cancer that affects the lining of the lungs – in June this year.

FW de Klerk had taken over from PW Botha as the head of the National Party in February 1989 and the following year announced he was removing the ban on parties that included Mr Mandela’s African National Congress (ANC).

His actions helped bring an end to apartheid-era South Africa, and he became one of the two deputy presidents after the multi-party elections in 1994 that saw Mr Mandela become president.

Mali Parliament Vice-President Freed

Mali’s interim parliament vice-president has been freed, weeks after he was arrested for public order offences.

Issa Kaou N’Djim was arrested in October and a ruling on his case is expected in December.

He was accused of making “subversive remarks”, which were not disclosed.

N’Djim is a supporter of Mali’s President Assimi Goïta but is a critic of Interim Prime Minister Choguel Kokalla Maïga.

His lawyers had said his detention was illegal because of a parliamentary immunity.
