Congo:  Thousands Displaced by Violence in North Kivu
May, 2012
The latest outbreak of violence in the east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has displaced more than 40,000 people, the United Nations refugee agency said today, adding that the distribution of relief items will soon commence among those uprooted, with most of them having sought shelter in schools and churches.

According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugee (UNHCR), most of the population displacement in the volatile North Kivu province is taking place in Rutshuru territory, north of the provincial capital, Goma.

A UNHCR spokesperson, Melissa Fleming, told reporters in Geneva that the agency's field staff reported fighting in Runyonyi, an area south of Rutshuru, on Saturday, between Government forces and renegade soldiers loyal to a former rebel commander, Bosco Ntaganda, who has been indicted by the International Criminal Court. The fighting continued until Sunday.

UNHCR and aid agencies, including the UN World Food Programme (WFP), the UN World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Committee of the Red Cross, will soon start distributing relief supplies, including food and medicines to the displaced.

CONGO, Africa
August 20, 2014 - Fears Ebola
has spread to Congo after 10 people die with Ebola-like symptoms
There are fears Ebola could have spread to the Democratic Republic of Congo after 10 people died from a disease with Ebola-like symptoms. The deceased included four health workers.

If this is an Ebola outbreak, which is extremely likely, this would be the fifth country where the virus has appeared.

Congo  -  Second plague?
August 23, 2014
 WHO says 70 died from hemorrhagic illness in DRC, denies outbreak is Ebola
70 people have died in northern Congo from an outbreak of hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, denying that the illness is Ebola.  592 people contracted the disease and 70 of them have died.  Five health care workers, including one doctor, are among the dead.
The illness affected several villages and estimated that the death toll was over 100 people.
The outbreak began in Equateur where the first case of Ebola was reported in 1976.

Symptoms of the two diseases are similar, including vomiting, diarrhea and internal bleeding. But the fatality rate for this outbreak of hemorrhagic gastroenteritis is much lower than for the West Africa Ebola outbreak.
Doctors Without Borders has sent a team to Equateur. They said it was too early to confirm what the disease is. Congo does not share a border with any of the West African countries infected by Ebola.

Marburg virus behaves very much like ebola.  It and dengue are hemorrhagic fevers.

The Ebola virus is confirmed in Congo  
Aug 24, 2014
 There are 70 cases of ebola confirmed in Congo.  Unsure what strain.
The Democratic Republic of Congo confirmed its first two cases this year of Ebola but claimed they were unrelated to the epidemic ravaging West Africa.
Kabange said the outbreak was "contained" in the area near Jera, more than 1,200 kilometres (750 miles) northeast of the Congolese capital Kinshasa.
Numbi said Congolese officials believed Ebola had killed 13 people in the region, including five health workers.
He said 11 people were sick and in isolation and that 80 contacts were being traced. He said the infections were of a different strain than those in the outbreak in West Africa that has killed more than 1,400 people.;_ylt=A0LEV70nNvpTkyIAVHgPxQt


Different Ebola strain kills 13 in the Congo
August 27, 2014  
 Congo said 13 people have died of Ebola in a separate outbreak from West African nations. Laboratory tests were positive for Ebola in two cases in a remote village in the northwest, and 11 other deaths are suspected of being due to the virus. The strain of Ebola in the Congo is different to that in West Africa. Among the dead are a doctor and four nurses. The affected areas were under quarantine. The Department of Health said on Monday that it had no plans to extend travel restrictions to the Congo. The travel bans announced last week remained in place. The government banned the entry of non-South Africans from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. South African citizens were asked to delay trips to the affected countries unless they were “absolutely essential.”

The government has downplayed the risk of Ebola entering SA. Additional screening of “persons of risk” have been put in place at airports. Eleven hospitals in SA have been designated to deal with patients infected with the disease. About 1,300 South African National Defense Force (SANDF) members are deployed in the east of the Congo with the United Nations (UN) peacekeeping force. SANDF spokesman Brig-Gen Xolani Mabanga said on Monday that reports had not pointed to a risk to personnel. “The situation doesn’t warrant the withdrawal of SANDF or any other foreign personnel deployed under the UN,” he said. However, an extraction plan and transport remained in place to facilitate a rapid evacuation of personnel.

How Ebola Spread in Congo
August 28, 2014  
A suspected Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo may have no connection to the outbreak in West Africa
Congo reported they are having an outbreak of Ebola, which appears to be separate and unrelated to the outbreak in West Africa.

According to the information given to the WHO and provided to media, here’s how it spread: The first person to contract Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo was a pregnant woman who butchered a bush animal given to her by her husband. She was taken to a clinic after she started displaying symptoms of Ebola virus disease and died on Aug. 11 of a hemorrhagic fever, that at the time, was not yet identified as Ebola. The woman died, and was dealt with by health care workers.

The health care workers who cared for the woman, which included one doctor, two nurses, a hygienist and a ward boy, all developed similar symptoms and died. Similar deaths were discovered among relatives of the first pregnant woman, people who were in contact with the health care workers, and people who were involved in the burial process of all the men and women who died. According to the WHO, from July 28 to August 18 there have been 24 suspected cases of the disease there, which includes 13 deaths.
Currently, samples of those infected are being tested for Ebola.

Does this sound as if its MORE lethal than the West African strain which kills half its victims?

Ebola outbreak in Congo is the indigenous 'Zaire strain'
Sept 3, 2014  
Congo Ebola no relationship to the outbreak in west Africa.
Results from virus sequencing of samples from the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have been analyzed and they belong to the so called Zaire strain, in a lineage most closely related to a virus from the 1995 Ebola outbreak in Kikwit, DRC.

Zambia Africa Day of Prayer
October 24, 2015
-  Zambia President Edgar Lungu seeks solution to economic problems. Christians debate whether motive matters.  Home of the world’s worst currency and a sputtering economy, Zambia needed a national day of prayer.  (AND REPENTANCE!)  At least, its new president decided it did.

Lungu stated -  I wish to thank the Almighty God for allowing us to assemble and observe the day of repentance, reconciliation, prayer, and fasting.  I personally believe that since we humbled ourselves as a people and have sincerely cried out to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, he has heard our cry, has forgiven our sins, and will surely heal our land.

In his prayer it appears Lungu omitted TURNING FROM SIN.
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is YESHUA, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Yeshua is the ONLY way to GOD
.  Did Lungu invoke His Holy Name?

If My people who are called by my name humble themselves,
and pray and seek my face
and turn from their wicked ways
THEN I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and eal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
Psalm 66:18
