HIV prevalence said to be high in Chobe . . .

About 25.9 per cent of men having sex with other men in Kasane were found to be living with HIV. This was recently revealed by the Assistant Minister for Presidential Affairs and Public Administration, Gaotlhaetse Matlhabaphiri who said the figure is more than both Gaborone and Francistown combined which stand at 12.3 per cent and 11.7 per cent respectively. Matlhabaphiri reportedly said the statistics were from the Botswana AIDS Impact Survey (BAIS) which was carried out last year to determine the level of HIV prevalence among most at risk populations. The same study also indicated that 63.3 per cent of sex workers in Kasane are living with HIV. Matlhabaphiri therefore noted that Batswana’s business as usual approach or keeping the AIDS response at its current pace cannot end the epidemic, saying multiple sexual partnerships are still a concern in the Chobe while testing for HIV is still low. BAIS findings revealed that three per cent of young people in the Chobe district had sex before the age of 15 years. HIV incidence dropped from 1.45 per cent in 2008 to 1.35 per cent in 2013.

SIERRA LEONEANS EMERGE FROM THEIR HOMES AFTER A THREE-DAY NATIONWIDE EBOLA LOCKDOWN .

Millions of Sierra Leoneans were set to emerge from their homes today after a three-day nationwide lockdown during which scores of dead bodies and new cases of Ebola infections were uncovered. The west African country had imposed the extreme measure confining its six million people to their homes for 72 hours in a bid to stem a deadly Ebola outbreak which has claimed more than 2 600 lives there and in neighbouring Liberia and Guinea this year. Only essential workers such as health professionals were exempt, as were some 30 000 volunteers who went door-to-door to hand out soap and give advice on halting the contagion. Liberia also ramped up the battle against the epidemic, announcing yesterday a four-fold increase in hospital beds to 1 000 for Ebola patients in the capital Monrovia, as more US troops arrived to shore up overwhelmed local officials in the fight. Ebola fever can fell its victims within days, causing severe muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhoea and - in many cases - unstoppable internal and external bleeding. Fears of contagion have crippled the economies of affected nations, as wary workers stay home and cross border trade is disrupted by airlines cutting links.

Government dismayed at US statement on Outsa Mokone’s arrest

Government has noted with dismay a press statement attributed to, Deputy Department Spokesperson of the U.S. State Department Marie Harf, expressing concern about the arrest of Outsa Mokone. In a statement, government says it finds unfortunate that a foreign Government, much less one that professes to be a friend and partner of Botswana, should issue such a statement about an ongoing judicial process in the country, without even having first approached the appropriate authorities for clarification on the matter. The statement says in this respect, it can confirm that at no point prior to the issuance of the said press statement did any representative of the US Government approach the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, as is the accepted diplomatic norm. Furthermore it noted that the case involving Mokone is still before the courts and will be resolved through the judicial process so it would be inappropriate for government to comment on the case. The statement said in this respect, the executive branch of government remains mindful of its responsibility to uphold the rule of law, without fear or favour, in the context of the well known independence of the judiciary and law enforcement agencies and can only hope that outsiders who profess to be informed will exercise similar restraint and not encourage lawlessness in Botswana.

Ebola virus is spreading fast in Liberia

The World Health Organisation says the Ebola virus is spreading fast in Liberia, where many thousands of new cases are expected over the coming three weeks. WHO said in a statement yesterday that transmission of the Ebola virus in Liberia is already intense and the number of new cases is increasing exponentially. The organisation noted that motorbike-taxis and regular taxis are "a hot source of potential virus transmission" because they are not disinfected in Liberia, where conventional Ebola control measures "are not having an adequate impact". Meanwhile the United Nations agency says aid partners need to scale up efforts against Ebola by three- to fourfold in Liberia and elsewhere in West African countries battling the epidemic. In Liberia, the disease has killed 1 089 people among 1 871 cases, the highest national toll, according to the WHO's update of last Friday. Overall in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, 2 097 have died out of 3 944 cases. Another 18 cases and seven deaths have been recorded in Nigeria and one non-fatal case in Senegal.
