Obongi County MP, Fungaroo Caps, while addressing press at Parliament today, said the disease has symptoms of Ebola and Cholera though not yet confirmed. "It is a contagious disease which kills very fast. Moyo district is the most affected and particularly Obongi county," Fungaroo added. The health centre 4 of Obongi is already congested as more patients continue to flock in. "Tents are immediately required since patients are on the open veranda." The disease reportedly broke out on Saturday and the ministry of Health was alerted but nothing has been done so far. "We call upon all charity organization and other NGOs to quickly help us," Fungaroo appealed. He further observed that there is no proper treatment being given to the soaring numbers of patients apart from simple dehydration interventions. "Women are the most affected, especially in Aliba, Imara sub counties. Worse still, there is no Ambulance on the ground." People being transported on boda bodas which has caused more infections instead.

Massive swarms of locusts invaded the Saudi capital Riyadh, prompting houses and companies to shut their doors and windows and halting traffic in many parts. Authorities said they were mobilizing their resources to combat the invasion which started on Thursday. The Arabic language daily Sabq, which carried a brief U-Tube film of the insects, said the locusts flew into the capital from the western part of the Gulf Kingdom, which has been a scene of locust attack over the past months. Locusts are a popular dish in Saudi Arabia, where a 10-kg bag of live locusts could be sold for Dh100.

His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.


There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.



The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.





'I want to repay you,' said the nobleman. 'You saved my son's life.'

'No, I can't accept payment for what I did,' the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel.

'Is that your son?' the nobleman asked.

'Yes,' the farmer replied proudly.



'I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like his father, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.' And that he did.


Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School inLondon, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted

Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.



Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia. What saved his life this time? Penicillin.



The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill ... His son's name?

Sir Winston Churchill.
