  • Taxi driver accused of abduction after locking cab doors; 3 customers jump from moving cab

    A taxi driver from Bethesda is in jail in Virginia after being accused of locking three women inside his vehicle and refusing to let them out after they said they couldn’t pay.

    Prince William County Police arrested 30-year-old Muzemil Denbel Awel in Woodbridge Saturday and charged him with three counts of abduction.

    According to police, early Saturday morning, three women aged 32, 29 and 22, hailed Awel’s vehicle in D.C. and asked him to drive more than 30 miles to Nassau Drive, which is in a neighborhood off Dale Boulevard.

    After the taxi arrived, police say the women got into an argument with Awel about how much money they owed. They eventually told him they couldn’t pay the fare.

    After that, police say Awel locked the doors and drove away, refusing to let the women out.

    One of them called a family member who began following the taxi. Police say about ten minutes later, the victims were able to get one of the back doors unlocked and they jumped out of the vehicle while it was still moving.

    Police say the women then got into the family members car and it continued following the taxi.

    Awel stopped at a business near the intersection of Mapledale Avenue and Dale Boulevard. Police arrived and placed Awel under arrest.

    On Monday, police said Awel was in jail on no bond with a court date scheduled for July 13.

    A man who answered the door at Awel’s Bethesda address Monday night said he wasn’t sure what had happened and wanted to find out more before saying anything on Awel’s behalf.

  • Sudan court sentences Ethiopian protesters to lashes, fine

    On Saturday, a Khartoum court sentenced 65 Ethiopians to 40 lashes and a large fine for staging a demonstration.
    Hundreds of Ethiopian nationals living in the Sudanese capital demonstrated in front of their embassy in southern Khartoum on Friday in protest against the increased fees for a stay permit.

    The Sudanese authorities have reportedly raised the fees for a residence permit from SDG 300 ($46) to SDG 2,000 ($308). The protesters demanded the embassy to intervene.

    The embassy guards failed to disperse the protesters, which led to the intervention of the police who detained more than 500 of them.

  • 100 USA Visas per Year for Ethiopia. Donald Trump Signs Executive Order

    The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has signed an executive order placing a quota on the number of visas to be issued by the United States Embassy in Addis Ababa to Ethiopians.

    The executive order, which bans seven countries from visiting the United States granted Ethiopia only 100 visas per year. This means that the embassy is entitled to issue visas to only 100 lucky applicants yearly until may be a new government takes over to make changes to such laws.

    Also, Ethiopians who hold dual nationality will be banned from entering the United States if their other passport is from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen — the seven Muslim-majority countries “of concern”.
    A lot of attention has been on the temporary visa ban on citizens of the seven Muslim-majority countries, but the impact on Ethiopians is far more than previously thought.

    United States visas to the lucky 100 people would be valid for only three months as a clause in the order requires reciprocity.

    Section 9 of the Executive Order states: “The Secretary of State shall review all nonimmigrant visa reciprocity agreements to ensure that they are, with respect to each visa classification, truly reciprocal insofar as practicable with respect to validity period and fees, as required by sections 221(c) and 281 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1201(c) and 1351, and other treatment. If a country does not treat United States nationals seeking nonimmigrant visas in a reciprocal manner, the Secretary of State shall adjust the visa validity period, fee schedule, or other treatment to match the treatment of United States nationals by the foreign country, to the extent practicable…”

    Given that the Trump order takes immediate effect, Ethiopians holding valid long term US visa are most likely to be affected.

  • Donald Trump to Arrest Mugabe And 6 Other African Leaders Within A Month. Read Shocking Details.

    American president Donald Trump has, on his first official day in office, reiterated that he will be coming for what he calls “corrupt African leaders” and it is his “first thing on the list”.

    Speaking from his official residence , The White House, Donald Trump said he is going to make sure he puts behind bars the president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe and South African president Jacob Zuma. Also on his list is Swaziland King Mswati III, Omar Al-Bashir, President of Sudan, José Eduardo dos Santos, President of Angola , Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, President of Equatorial Guinea and Yoweri Museveni President of Uganda.

     Last year, the US business icon Donald Trump’s statement was conceived as a notice to Mugabe and Ugandan President, of what their fate will be if he becomes the President of the United States of America. While addressing war veterans in a speech in Washington, Trump warned the other dictators across the globe who want to die in power, that it’s just a matter of time before they face justice for their crimes.

    “I want to reiterate here before America’s greatest heroes that I will not condone any dictatorial tendencies exhibited by dictators around the world especially the two old men from Zimbabwe and Uganda.”

    Mugabe responded “Recently that madman that wants to be American President said he’ll arrest some African Presidents including my brother Yoweri and myself and lock us in his imaginary prison should he become American President”

     “May I state here that Trump will never take us anywhere because we Africans are the strongest and fearless in the universe. I wish everyone to Know that I have nothing to fear and I want to tell the world that Hitler’s descendant (Trump) has taken after him and he is about to do his worst should the people of America make a mistake of electing him” President Mugabe said.

  • Yegna, Ethiopia's 'Spice Girls', lose UK funding

    British taxpayers' money will no longer be used to fund a five-member Ethiopian girl band, the government has said.

    International Development Secretary Priti Patel announced a review of the funding last month after reports that pop group Yegna received £5.2m.
    Girl Effect, the Ethiopian group which manages Yegna and promotes women's rights in the country, said its aims had been "wilfully misrepresented". But the government said there are "more effective ways" to invest UK aid.

    Yegna has been the subject of a long-running campaign by the Daily Mail. It dubbed the band "Ethiopia's Spice Girls" saying that grants to the group were a waste of money.

    The UK's Department for International Development said its partnership with Girl Effect has ended following the review, but insisted that "empowering women and girls around the world remains a priority". It said the decision had not been influenced by press coverage of Yegna.

    "We judge there are more effective ways to invest UK aid," a spokeswoman said, adding that the government will "deliver even better results for the world's poorest and value for taxpayers' money".

  • Why a woman's heart beats faster than a man's

     A Canadian study has found that women have a circadian rhythm, which runs between 1.7 and 2.3 hours ahead of their male partners. 

    This means they are likely to feel more tired earlier in the evening than men, according to the study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    Such differences are mainly due to the influence of our sex hormones, says Dr Adam Taylor, a senior lecturer in anatomy at Lancaster University Medical School
