REUTERS/James Akena/FilesKAMPALA, Sept 20 (Reuters) - An outbreak of Ebola has been declared in Uganda after health authorities confirmed a case of the relatively rare Sudan strain, the health ministry and World Health Organization (WHO) said on Tuesday.

It said Uganda last reported an outbreak of Ebola Sudan strain in 2012 and an outbreak of the Ebola Zaire strain in 2019. Another vaccine produced by Johnson & Johnson (JNJ.N) may be effective but has yet to be specifically tested against the Sudan strain, it added.

CNN —Irene Gakwa’s last WhatsApp video call with her parents was filled with gentle ribbing. After Gakwa’s brothers could not reach her, they looked through her phone records and called a close friend she’d talked to numerous times. A group formed to help find Irene Gakwa prepares to post signs seeking information about the missing woman in Gillette, Wyoming, on June 18. Lacey Ayers talks to Stacy Koester, left, and Melissa Bloxom as they place signs with an image of Irene Gakwa in a yard in Gillette, Wyoming.

(CNN) William Ruto has emerged the winner of a tense and fiercely fought contest for Kenya's presidency, but who is the man who will lead east Africa's largest economy? Ruto, who has served as deputy president since 2013, pulled off a stunning defeat against his chief opponent, veteran politician Raila Odinga. "There were predictions that we won't get here, but ... we are here," Ruto declared in his victory speech on Monday. Odinga later doubled down, saying on Tuesday that, in his coalition's view, "there is neither a legally and validly declared winner nor a president-elect." Supporters of William Ruto, Kenya's President elect, celebrate in Eldoret on August 15, 2022.
Lamu, Kenya (CNN) Just before sunset, Umra Omar boards a speedboat that will take her around the historic Lamu channel for meetings with voters. She is among a record number of women running for office in Kenya's August 9 general election. She says she is running for office as a natural progression after seven years of providing "band-aid solutions" for poor healthcare. 'Kenya is ready for women at all levels'If opposition leader Raila Odinga wins, Kenya could have its first female deputy president in 64-year-old Martha Karua. So that question is in itself discriminatory," the former Kenyan justice minister tells CNN.
Kenya: Drought and soaring grain prices fuel insecurity

Just as in west Africa, Kenya's problems are being deepened by climate change. A malnourished child being measured in Ileret, northern Kenya. Members of Akuagok's tribe, the Daasanach, crowded around her shouting their own stories of loss -- loss of friends to illness perhaps caused by hunger, loss of animals, and how now, even when they make a very little cash, it's never enough to get by. A mother feeding her malnourished child in Ileret, northern Kenya. The combination of drought, soaring food and fuel prices due to a distant war, a burgeoning population, and civil wars on Kenya's doorstep is an incendiary mix.
When Lesein Mutunkei scores a goal, he plants 11 trees – one to represent each player on his team. That same year, Mutunkei started Trees4Goals to mobilize young athletes in his region to take up his pledge of planting trees every time they score. He leads into a football game, and ends with a tree planting session. “It was almost a race to plant the trees,” Mutunkei said. Mutunkei receives messages from young athletes across the globe, saying they read his story and took up the challenge of Trees4Goals.

We're trying to make Facebook safer — at the expense of our mental healthThe job of content moderators is to try to make Facebook safe for everyone who uses it.

Kenya şi oamenii săi păreau complet izolaţi de orice experienţă la care mă puteam raporta. Triburi, palmieri, colonialism: pe lângă fusul orar – care e acelaşi – Kenya şi Moldova nu au prea multe în comun. O mare parte dintr-un spectacol de artista kenyană Sitawa Namwalie se vorbeşte anume despre relaţiile dintre oamenii de aici. Dilema între „adevărul istoric” și „mâna ocupanţilor”La fel de mult ca arta locală m-a ajutat să înţeleg relaţiile între triburile din Kenya cunoaşterea realităţilor politice din Moldova. De fapt, dilema între „adevărul istoric” și „mâna ocupanţilor”, resuscitată în recentele alegeri locale, diferă superficial de discursul „tribul nostru vs. tribul vostru” în Kenya.
