The Church in Burundi is calling for prayers for peace, while it also responds to the needs of vulnerable people.After several weeks of political tension, the situation escalated last week with an attempted coup and struggle over control of Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi. The tensions began when President Pierre Nkurunziza announced that he would stand for a third term as president in elections at the end of June. The constitution limits the presidential tenure to two terms.Recent weeks have seen violent street protests and a large exodus of people leaving the country concerned for their safety. This is considered the worst outbreak of violence since the civil war ended in 2005.Last week’s events have resulted in a huge increase in displacement as people flee in fear. A UNHCR report on Friday, May 15, shows 105,000 people have left the country, with 70,000 refugees in Tanzania alone.Oxfam reports that “new arrivals cite fear of violence and intimidation as primary reasons for leaving. Tens of thousands are in urgent need of clean water, adequate sanitation, health care, food and shelter. Without these basic needs being met, the risk of disease spreading among new arrivals is dangerously high.”The Anglican Church in Burundi is among the Christian Aid partners that are preparing to respond to the needs of people affected by the ongoing situation in Burundi. Christian Aid reports that partners are now assessing the needs on the ground and coordinating their response. They have received funding to work alongside communities to support them to prepare local contingency plans that can be activated in the event of a crisis.Christian Aid Country Manager for Burundi, James Robinson, said: “The situation is very volatile and things are tense in and around Bujumbura particularly. Many people have been staying indoors, not moving because of the threat of gunfire, wondering what will happen next. People are scared to leave their homes.“Since the demonstrations began life for many Burundians has been paralyzed, with local trade, transport and public services all affected. As the protests continue, stocks of goods such as petrol, food, medicine and water are becoming scarce. Any further disruption threatens to leave communities both insecure and without essential items. With the high levels of poverty in the country, it’s the poorest who are the least able to cope.”Before the attempted coup last week, Bishop Eraste Bigirimana of Bujumbura had already asked for prayers as the situation was becoming worse in Bujumbura city. Most of the offices and shops are now closed. Many people have been killed, others seriously injured and admitted to hospital. Five hundred are in jail, thousands have fled the country. “We are now receiving a big number of people, especially children, coming to our home seeking for security and protection,” Bigirimana says.Mothers’ Union President Mathilde Nkwirikiye also asks for continued prayers, for tolerance and for discernment of God’s will for His people. Nkwirikiye has already taken in several children evacuated from the Rainbow Centre where the foster families are living in the danger zones, with other members doing likewise. The Rainbow Centre is planning a wider response to support vulnerable children during this uncertain period.

January 2012: Hawkins\Brown has completed new student accommodation, a restaurant and CPD facility at the Royal Veterinary College’s Hawkshead Campus near Potters Bar, Hertfordshire. The scheme allows for an increased number of students to live on campus, providing accommodation for 205 students, a restaurant and conference/meeting rooms. Renowned as one of the world’s leading veterinary colleges and research centres, the Royal Veterinary College operates out of two campuses; the central London Campus in Camden and the Hawk shead Campus near Potters Bar in Hertfordshire. Save this picture!Courtesy of Hawkins\BrownHawkshead Campus is set within 6 acres of Hertfordshire greenbelt. The new low-rise development is sensitive to its rural setting maintaining views across the campus. The 6,480 sq m development replaces Northumberland Hall, providing improved accommodation, which better suits the needs of the college’s mature student demographic. The mass of the scheme is broken down into a collection of low-rise three and four storey pavilions arranged around courtyards of varying sizes and linked by a lightweight aluminium core. The larger space towards the centre creates a focal point and a place where all students can congregate. The pavilions are arranged in pairs and linked by a lightweight aluminium clad lift and stair core. Save this picture!Courtesy of Hawkins\BrownThe public areas, including the restaurant, CPD areas and catered student accommodation are located in the south east corner of the development to connect with existing student services on the campus, including TaRC, a new building by Architecture PLB and the Eclipse building by Nicholas Hare Architects, which will become the new social hub of the campus. A new landscaping scheme by Grontmij connects unifies these buildings. Save this picture!master planThe original campus buildings were built of brick and recent additions to the campus have been timber clad. The new development references this existing palette, by combining Western Red Cedar timber cladding with Bronsgroen brick, which are affordable and low maintenance materials that will age well with the cedar weathering to a silver grey. Windows are recessed with powder coated aluminum lining to maintain the timber cladding weathering rates across the façade. Save this picture!Courtesy of Hawkins\BrownThe timber cladding incorporates two different widths of board, with the gaps between each board varying also. The size of board was chosen for its efficiency once cut and planed after discussions with the sub contractor, to minimize wastage to each module. The pattern used is offset at each floor level to breakdown the massing of each pavilion. Save this picture!Courtesy of Hawkins\BrownPress enquiries and image requests: Claire Curtice Publicists Tel: +44 (0)20 7613 1442 Email: [email protected] Inside the student accommodation full height oriel windows maximise daylight in each bedroom. One floor to ceiling panel glazed at an oblique angle is combined with two night purging panels set behind a perforated panel, to provide privacy and secure night ventilation. The oriel windows are combined with punched windows to break down the massing of the building. The aluminum cladding to the cores is perforated with a bespoke pattern designed in collaboration with Nicky Hirst, the visual artist that Hawkins\Brown previously worked with on the award-winning New Biochemistry department at the University of Oxford. The aluminum is anodised to a light bronze finish, which has been chosen to compliment the brick and timber finishes. Save this picture!Courtesy of Hawkins\BrownOverall the finished result has exceeded expectations and demonstrates what can be achieved on a budget when good design is combined with simple high quality materials. The project boasts many green credentials including: the provision of cycle parking; water and energy management including solar thermal arrays for domestic hot water and grey water recycling; as well as the use of sustainable materials in its construction, resulting in a breeam very good rating.Project gallerySee allShow lessNew Bauhaus Museum / MenoMenoPiu ArchitectsArticles‘Stavia 2012′ Hotel Proposal / Marciano ArchitectureArticlesProject locationAddress:Hawkshead Ln, Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire, UKLocation to be used only as a reference.

March 26, 2019 Unprecedented arrest of two Somali soldiers for mistreating journalists RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists News Somali soldiers are on patrol at Sanguuni military base, about 450 km south of Mogadishu, Somalia. Crédit : Mohamed ABDIWAHAB / AFP Impunity for crimes of violence against journalists has always been the norm in Somalia until the two soldiers were arrested on 24 March and placed in preventive detention on charges of “torture” and “threats” brought by the armed forces attorney-general in connection with their treatment of two reporters on 18 February.The two journalists, Abdullahi Dahir Abdi and Said Warsame Sabriye, who work for the video news production company Dhanbaal, were on foot in Mogadishu on 18 February, interviewing passers-by about the lockdown in some of its streets, when they were arrested and handcuffed by the two soldiers and then made to lie face down on the sidewalk with their feet tied to the hands.Although the journalists had committed no crime, they were forced to remain in this humiliating and painful position for an hour and a half before the soldiers handed them over to the police, who finally released them.“These unprecedented arrests of the two soldiers, which were decided at the highest state level, set an important precedent for the fight against impunity in Somalia,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“It is essential that the authorities continue to move in this direction so that the prosecution and punishment of those responsible for abuses against journalists become systematic. We urge the authorities to demonstrate the same determination by arresting the police officer who gunned down a journalist in cold blood last July.”Somalia continues to be one of Africa’s deadliest countries for media personnel, with three journalists killed in connection with their work last year. Two were killed by the Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab.The third, Abdirisaq Qasim Iman, a reporter for the privately-owned TV channel SBS, was shot dead by a policeman during an argument at a checkpoint in Mogadishu on 25 July. Although the policeman’s identity is known, he has yet to be arrested.Somali is ranked 168th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Rajput, aged 34, was found hanging from the ceiling of his apartment in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on June 14 and since then the Mumbai police has been probing the case keeping in mind various angles. The move of Rhea to rush to the top court assumes significance in view of the fact that a four-member probe team of Bihar police is already in Mumbai and may seek to interrogate the actress as the FIR lodged at Patna by Rajput’s father, K K Singh, contained allegations of severe criminal offences such as abetment of suicide and criminal breach of trust under the IPC. Advocate Satish Maneshinde, who is representing Chakraborty, said he has filed a petition in the apex court seeking transfer of the case from Patna to Mumbai where the probe in the death case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput is going on. In her plea, Chakraborty has also sought stay on probe by Bihar Police on the FIR lodged by Rajput’s father till disposal of her plea in top court, Maneshinde said. The move came, four days after Rajput’s father K K Singh lodged an FIR at Rajiv Nagar police station in Patna against Chakraborty and six others, including her family members, accusing them of abetting the actor’s suicide. The case, in which Mumbai police has been busy quizzing Bollywood’s big producers and directors like Mahesh Bhatt, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Aditya Chopra and others to know the reasons behind the untimely demise of the 34-year-old actor, suddenly took a new turn with Rajput’s father lodging the FIR against his rumoured actor girlfriend Rhea and six other. Rhea Chakraborty had also recorded her statement with the Mumbai police.Singh, on July 25, lodged the FIR under various sections of IPC including 306 (abetment of suicide), 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint), 342 (punishment for wrongful confinement), 380 (theft in dwelling house), 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust) and 420 (Cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property). Several political leaders and film personalities have demanded a CBI probe into his death. Rajput’s suspected death by suicide has also triggered a debate on alleged nepotism and favouritism in the Hindi film industry. Several top production houses had allegedly boycotted the Patna-born actor, causing him distress and compelling him to end his lifeNext Story
