Letter from Africa: Remembering South Africa's Ahmed Kathrada

This previous week in Johannesburg there was a memorial service I wished I had possessed the capacity to go to.

Ahmed Kathrada, surely understood African National Congress (ANC) extremist and South African statesman, was let go. The merited tributes to the man, tenderly known as Kathy, who passed on at 87 years old have been conveyed.

I would essentially have gotten a kick out of the chance to be there to be a piece of an occasion that would check the conclusion for an adventure that began for me on 15 October 1989 in the Soweto township. Read more:-International Database

I was on my first revealing excursion to South Africa for the BBC and, subsequent to having been denied a visa for over two years, I was at last conceded one after the intercession of the redoubtable hostile to politically-sanctioned racial segregation dissident Helen Suzman.

Bana Alabed: Syrian tweeting girl pens letter to Trump

Bana Alabed, the seven-year-old Aleppo girl known worldwide for her tweets from Aleppo, has written an open letter to Donald Trump.

"You must do something for the children of Syria because they are like your children and deserve peace like you," she wrote.
Bana escaped Aleppo with her family in December during the mass evacuations, and is now living in Turkey.

Her twitter account became famous for its messages from besieged east Aleppo.

Her mother, Fatemah - who helps run the account - sent the text of the letter to the BBC.

She said Bana wrote it days before President Trump's inauguration, because "she has seen Trump many times on the TV".
