Crowded Slums Pose Challenge as Kenya Braces for Coronavirus

NAIROBI – Kenyan authorities reported three new coronavirus cases Wednesday — a couple from Spain and a Burundian who came from the United Arab Emirates. The country now has a total of seven cases.

No cases have been reported in Nairobi’s Kibera section yet, but residents of the vast slum are concerned as the crowded living quarters would make it difficult to fight the deadly virus if it begins to spread there.

Hezbon Kodek, who lives alone in a single room in Kibera, says poor hygiene compounds the problem.

“We have a pit latrine, but the neighbors — we are more than 100 rooms sharing one toilet,” he said. “It’s a bit complex. And more so you find that the water, there is a problem with water. Sometimes on Fridays there is no water. It’s a bit complex.”

Sylvester Okoth, a 33-year-old father of two, lives in a single room with his family. He says they are trying to do everything possible to be safe from the virus.

“I have left to God, but on the cleanliness part, we are trying to wash our hands and the place we sleep,” he said. “We keep it clean. On the shared bathroom and toilet as people who share, we decided to make sure all of us take the initiative to keep them clean and keep the environment clean.”

Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe says they are taking measures to prevent the outbreak of the disease in crowded areas like Kibera.

“We have got a team in the Ministry of Health that is going to start going ’round within those slum areas so that they can be able to talk to them and tell them what to do and tell them how to behave,” Kagwe said. “These are the areas we are saying that we are asking the county government to take serious measure as far as cleanliness is concerned. We are also asking the ministry of water, and they are assisting us to do so to ensure that these areas have water.”

Witnesses in Kibera say they have received leaflets educating the residents on the coronavirus.

But Kodek says he took issue with one particular recommendation.

“Stay home as much as possible. But how can we stay at home when you need food to put in your mouth?” he said. “That’s the question we ask ourselves. How can you stay? So this thing is pandemic, and it’s going to kill all of us. How can you stay at home when there is no food?”

Among Kenya’s neighbors, Somalia, Ethiopia and Tanzania have reported cases of the virus. There are more than 500 reported cases across the continent, with the only death so far in Burkina Faso.

Zimbabweans Still Recovering a Year After Cyclone Idai

CHIMANIMANI, ZIMBABWE – A year after eastern Zimbabwe was hit by Cyclone Idai, one of the worst tropical storms on record for Africa, some survivors are still recovering.

The cyclone that hit in March 2019 left nearly 700 people dead or missing, and destroyed or damaged almost 50,000 homes, according to officials.

Sitting next to his fowl run with fewer than five chickens — his only sign of wealth — 33-year-old Muchaneta Maputire is one of the thousands who survived but had to move into a temporary shelter because his house was ruined.

One year later, Maputire is still waiting to get into permanent housing.

He currently lives in a tent with his wife and 7-month-old son. When it is raining, he said, they are tormented with fear that their shelter will be destroyed, just like during Cyclone Idai.

The International Organization for Migration says 24,000 families affected by the storm in Zimbabwe are still in need of permanent shelter.

July Moyo, Zimbabwe’s minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, says President Emmerson Mnangagwa is aware of the housing problem, but the government’s top priority is repairing roads and bridges that were damaged by the storm.

“We are now building back better. In one case, we were assisted by the South African defense forces,” Moyo said. “There … is a lot of work to be done, but the ministry is now leading the reconstruction and building back better than what was there.”

The United Nations Office for Project Services is managing the?Zimbabwe Idai Recovery Project with $100 million in grants from the World Bank and the African Development Bank.

Djibrilla Mazin, the head of UNOPS in Zimbabwe, says U.N. agencies are helping affected communities recover through food handouts, livestock, and crop assistance.

“So things are happening in terms of immediate recovery plans. And the longer and medium-term recovery are also taking place,” Mazin said. “We have two roads in Chimanimani and in Chipinge that are labor based. So, it’s also engaging the local population in those works … . What we are looking at is building better, so that takes a little time because the intention is not just repairing what it is there, but reconstructing something that will last.”

That is also what Maputire and thousands of others whose homes were destroyed by Cyclone Idai are hoping for — permanent homes that can withstand the storms to come.

South Africa Comes Together Politically Against Coronavirus

JOHANNESBURG – The spread of novel coronavirus seems to have turned everything upside down in South Africa, including its usually fractious politics.

As cases surged past 100, the nation was also treated to a startling show of political unity from President Cyril Ramaphosa and his bitterest political opponents.

The president and his rivals stood side by side at a Cape Town news conference, although they intentionally kept their distance and did not touch each other except for elbow bumps.

A smiling Ramaphosa addressed reporters.

“We all agree that this is an unprecedented moment,” he said. “We have not seen anything as serious as this confronting the entire nation. But we agreed that regardless of our political persuasions, our political differences, all of us share a common desire to keep our people safe, but also to mitigate the impact of this virus on the lives of our people.”

Ramaphosa also said political leaders had discussed issues of inequality that could impact efforts to stop the virus.

Many lower-income South Africans lack basic services at home, and rely on crowded public transportation where the virus could easily spread.

Support from opponents

Just a month ago, firebrand politician Julius Malema and his Economic Freedom Fighters staged a demonstration in parliament that delayed Ramaphosa’s annual state of the union address. On Wednesday, however, these words came out of Malema’s mouth:

“As the EFF, we fully support the initiative of government and we call upon all South Africans to listen to the leadership of our government and follow exactly as we are told.”

John Steenhuisen, leader of the pro-business Democratic Alliance, also praised the president and appealed to customers and entrepreneurs to act responsibly.

“I would like to make an appeal to two aspects, to South Africans, to the private sector and big business, particularly, to get involved in the effort,” he said. “This is going to require the best efforts of all South Africans to come together to fight this virus, and its effects of the economy. It’s not a time for anyone to be sitting back on their hands.”

‘Generosity of spirit’

But everyone is wondering: Will this camaraderie last? Political analyst Karima Brown thinks it will, at least through the crisis.

“Political parties, even such as the Freedom Front Plus, acknowledge that the president isn’t in denial about the extent of the crisis,” Brown said. “And as a consequence, there’s goodwill and there is generosity of spirit, which is really, you know, part of the underlying fabric of South African social society. We are deeply divided, but we are also a society that is able to rally in times of crises. We’ve done it before and we are doing it now.”

Because, she said, if the Rainbow Nation can make it through the grueling, violent end of the apartheid system and emerge better for it, it can work through this crisis, too.
