Maghaniryo L’Katé, the director of Kasindi-based Radio Télévision Graben, was threatened after reporting alleged customs fraud at the nearby border involving a DRC regular army unit headed by Captain Fredy Kangela. Maghaniryo L’Katé was threatened by telephone on 21 March. And he was threatened again the next day when he responded to a summons to go to the captain’s office, although he took the precaution of bringing witnesses with him. An officer in the captain’s office threatened him with reprisals if he broadcast any further information about the military. “I will kill you like they did with Norbert Zongo,” he said, in the presence of about ten people. He was referring to a journalist who was killed in Burkina Faso in 1998 while investigating the death of the driver of François Compaoré, the then president’s brother. “This kind of abuse of authority by military personnel is totally unacceptable,” RSF said. “We remind the Congolese authorities that they are responsible for protecting journalists. We call for a thorough investigation into this case, which constitutes a grave violation of freedom of information.” Freedom of information has declined of late in the DRC, as evidenced by the closure of three broadcast media outlets in Lubumbashi since the start of the year and the news blackout imposed on radio stations in Nord-Kivu’s Rutshuru Territory two weeks ago. A journalists arrested in Nord-Kivu on 5 March is still being held and has yet to be taken before a judge. The DRC is ranked 150th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2015 World Press Freedom Index.

The Wild Fuschia Bakehouse are hoping their offering of a taste of home will prove a winner with the Irish diaspora in the USA.The Dunfanaghy based bakery’s line of dry bread mixes can bring fresh Donegal baking to kitchen tables around the world by allowing users to bake in their own home.With around 33 million Americans claiming Irish ancestry, the US market is a potentially lucrative one for Bakehouse proprietor Sian McCann who will travel to Philadelphia and Boston next month as part of a joint trade delegation from the Donegal and Derry / Strabane Councils. She plans to learn more about the US market by meeting with trade professionals and potential customers and explore the logistics of export.“We produce fresh breads, tray bakes and cakes for local retail and wholesale markets from March to December,” explained Sian.“The bakery is busy during the summer and holiday periods but quiet for the remainder of the year so to help stimulate sales during the winter months we have developed a small number of dry bread mixes.“While the mixes are meeting an existing demand within our own bakery and other local foodie outlets, a significant number of our customers are the Donegal diaspora who are taking both the bread and the mixes home with them. “The mixes replicate the breads made in the bakery, there are a maximum of five natural ingredients and they are free artificial colours and preservatives.”Sian McCann of the The Wild Fuschia Bakehouse one of seven businesses participating in the North West Trade and Investment Mission to the US in November.The line of mixes have already proved a hit with the Irish diaspora over the counter in her Main Street shop in Dunfanaghy but Sian has ambitious plans to take her sales to the next level and bring her product to them in the near future.“Based on my experience of working in the tourism industry for 10 years and in the bakery, I believe the bread mixes appeal to the diaspora as I have been selling them quite successfully from the bakery shop,” she continued.“It would, however, be much better if I could go to the market rather than waiting for them to come to me.“I would like to be able to research the market and get a feel for where the bread mixes sit in the market place in relation to their competitors. “This is a wonderful opportunity to meet with US based professionals and retailers and to discuss the requirements, pit falls and market opportunities.“I will be able to question my desk research surrounding the customers I am targeting, the needs I am addressing.“Also to find out the logistics of export as this is a new area for the business and for me personally.“I would also take the opportunity to get samples, check out my competitors, check the legal implications for my packaging and labelling and what requirements are needed to work with US distributors including the issue of currency fluctuations etc.” While much of her strategy for entering the US market will be determined by the connections and information she gathers next month, Sian has a clear vision for the company in the years ahead.“I want to invest in marketing and develop a fresh, modern on-line presence, exploiting the current social media to include e-sales, a blog and short video clips.“I believe we can increase sales by generating interest in home baking and encouraging people to give it a go and get over their fear of baking.“We want to develop a strong brand presence, initially in Donegal and the rest of Ireland and develop export links with the US and Northern Ireland and expand our range of bread mixes, based on the best-selling products from the bakery and market feedback.”The Trade and Investment Mission will be led by Donegal County Council and Derry City and Strabane District Council.It will include third level and further education providers and development organisations including the Ulster University, Letterkenny Institute of Technology, the North West Regional College and Donegal ETB.The mission takes place from 11-15 November and is funded by The Executive Office and the Irish Government.For more information on the trade mission visit www.irelandNW.com and follow the hashtag #IrelandNW19.Wild Fuschia Bakehouse aiming to be ‘in the mix’ for lucrative US Market was last modified: October 29th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Arunachal Pradesh has echoed Manipur in demanding to be kept out of any “territorial changes” that might be incorporated in the settlement of the Naga political problem.The Central government has been discussing with the Isak-Muivah faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM) as well as a rival conglomerate named Naga National Political Groups for a “final solution” by October 31, a deadline purportedly set by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.“The proposed agreement between the Centre and the NSCN-IM should not affect Arunachal Pradesh and its people in any way. We strongly oppose any attempt to change the territorial jurisdiction of the State or any kind of administrative intervention in the State while reaching the final solution,” said Hawa Bagang, president of the All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU).The union has demanded that Pema Khandu’s BJP government should make its stand on the vexed issue clear. It also asked the three MPs from Arunachal Pradesh, all its 60 legislators and political parties to come together for protecting the territorial integrity of the State.The AAPSU’s message to Delhi is based on the NSCN-IM’s vision of Nagalim or Greater Nagaland that would entail redrawing of boundaries to bring all Naga-inhabited areas in the Northeast under one administrative umbrella.The NSCN-IM’s map of Nagalim spreads over 1,03,473 sq km beyond the 16,527 sq km area of Nagaland. It includes much of eastern Arunachal Pradesh. The outfit, as well as rival factions, claim that these areas, primarily Changlang, Longding and Tirap districts are dominated by Nagas.Army and police officials say members of the NSCN-IM, its rival Khaplang, Reformation and Unification factions, have been terrorising and extorting locals in these districts of Arunachal Pradesh. Naga extremists are believed to be involved in the killing of Tirong Aboh, two days before he was elected to the Khonsa West Assembly seat, and 10 others.Mr Aboh’s wife Chakat Aboh won the seat in the October 21 by-election as an independent supported by five parties, including the BJP and the Congress.
