SIX PERSONS BURNT BEYOND RECOGNITION IN BOMB ATTACK ON BUS IN SOUTH AFRICA

POLOKWANE, SOUTH AFRICA– Six people have been burnt beyond recognition

when a bus transporting workers of the Modikwa Platinum Mine to work was allegedly petrol-bombed Monday night at Driekop village outside Burgersfort in Limpopo province, about 150 kilometres southeast of this provincial capital.

Police spokesperson Motlafela Mojapelo said Tuesday that the suspects and the motive for the incident are unknown.

Provincial Police Commissioner Lieutenant-General Nneke Ledwaba has condemned in the strongest possible terms the gruesome incident in which six people were burnt beyond recognition,” he said.

“After the bus was petrol bombed at Driekop village, a provincial task team has been assembled to track down the killers. A reward of 500,000 Rand (about 42,000 US dollars) is offered for any valuable information that leads to the possible arrest and the conviction of people responsible for this horrific incident.

Residents of Driekop Village have urged the police to step up investigations into the attack, which left 28 people injured, apart from the six killed.

Some community members say the incident has shocked them. We are unhappy about this horrific incident. It is unacceptable for people to die like this and we will work with the police to ensure the suspects are arrested. It is the first time something like this happens in our area and we are scared. The police must do all they can to arrest the suspects.

AFRICAN UNION, IGAD WELCOME SMOOTH POWER TRANSITION IN ETHIOPIA

ADDIS ABABA-The African Union (AU) Commission and the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) have welcomed the smooth transition of power in Ethiopia this week and have pledged to work closely with the new Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, according to statements received from the two African organizations.

Moussa Faki Mahamat, the Chairperson of AU Commission, who congratulated Abiy on his confirmation as the new Prime Minister of Ethiopia by the national legislature on Monday, welcomed the peaceful and smooth transition, describing it as “a demonstration of political maturity”.

Mahamat further reiterated the AU’s full support to the people and government of Ethiopia as they strive to achieve greater strides in the interest of their country, the region and the entire continent, according to an AU statement.

He vowed to work closely with Ahmed towards achievement of the objectives set in the continent’s 50-year-development strategy, Agenda 2063, including the promotion of peace and security and the advancement of continental integration.

Mahamat is “convinced that, under the leadership of the new Prime Minister, Ethiopia will successfully meet the tasks at hand and further consolidate the remarkable social-economic progress it has made over the past two decades”.

Mahamat also commended Ethiopians for their ability to mitigate recent challenges, saying that “throughout their long and proud history, the Ethiopian people have shown their ability to overcome challenges and unite in the pursuit of the higher interest of their country”.

He also had high praise for former Premier Hailemariam Desalegn “for his commitment and contribution to the advancement of Ethiopia and the continent as a whole”.

IGAD, the eight-nation Horn of Africa sub-regional grouping based in Djibouti, congratulated Abiy and welcomed him as the new Chairperson of IGAD.

IGAD commends the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) for the wise and principled election of its new Chairperson, Abiy Ahmed, who is also the Chairperson of the Oromo People Democratic Organization (OPDO), one of the four member parties of the Front, the bloc said in a statement.

IGAD said it strongly believes that Abiy, one of the young, dynamic, and highly educated members of the EPRDF leadership, is up to the mark to lead the coalition, which has deservedly been applauded as the architect of Ethiopia’s benchmark status regarding the economic and social progress in the continent, it added.

It also welcomed Prime Minister Abiy as the new Chairperson of IGAD.
