This program has become known as a sort of one and done place. We're top recruits come in and leave after just a year. But this year, the wildcats are a much more seasoned veteran group. Has that been an intentional move by coach caliph? Yes, absolutely. After what they went through last season, there was beginning to be a little bit of a weariness of always rebooting and leaning solely on freshmen. Cal had kind of walked that high wire tightrope for several years. But they haven't been to a final four since 2015 and they hadn't gotten all the highest highest in guys anymore in recruiting and last year. It just all falls apart. And I think yeah, Cal deliberately said, okay. I gotta go get older. And so yeah, I mean, the bulk of what Cal brought in was veteran guys. And they're one of the oldest teams in the country now. And I think it's definitely paid dividends because save the 2012 title team in the 2015 team that almost went undefeated. This team is hitting on all cylinders earlier than almost every other John calipari team at Kentucky. And aside from Oscar, who are some of the key players that make this team tick. Can you give us a little snapshot of what this team looks like on the court? Yeah, severe Wheeler, the point guard who transferred in from Georgia. He's a blur. He's a little guy and a very fast guy and he's pesters people defensively, the length of the court and he doesn't care much about scoring and just wants to facilitate. Wheeler finds the big and he finishes in any language this guy is a power inside. And as such, he's now leading the SEC and assist for the second straight year. Kelly Grady sort of idolized Steph Curry and followed in his footsteps and went to Davidson and scored 2000 points there. You bring in a guy that's already scored 2000 points in college and he's really blossomed as an outside shooter for them. Three for Grady and a chance for one more. His movement without the ball. His next level. Leads the SEC in three point shooting and then tie tie Washington. He's the one freshman they lean on, but he plays like a veteran he's also 20 years old and then davion mints who started every game for Kentucky last year and was like the leader of that bad team. Now he's your super sub. You're 6 man coming off the bench and John calipari, pushing him heavily as SEC 6 man of the year right now. Well, the wildcats are right near the top of the college basketball rankings as we're speaking here on Tuesday. They're in the conversation for a national championship. What if anything, do you think Kyle stands in their way? What would prevent them from hoisting the national championship trophy? I mean, really, it's about can they stay healthy and get an Oscar stay on the floor for whether it be injury or foul trouble or anything else as long as Oscar she weighs out there. They've got a fighting chance because no matter how you're playing offensively, he's gonna gobble up half the misses if you're not making shots, but he's got to stay on the floor. They've got to stay healthy. And so I don't think they have a lot of holes when they're at full strength. They have shooting. They defend. They can win a grind it out game. They can score a 107 points as they did in their first game against Tennessee this year, almost put a hundred on North Carolina out in Las Vegas. They have a little bit of everything. And they have good depth. And so I think you just, you hope you stay healthy and otherwise they've got all the pieces to make a run. And lastly Kyle, you know, bring this back to Oscar. What do you see unfolding for him during the rest of this season and beyond? What does the future look like for Oscar boy? That's a great question. I mean, in the immediate future, it's just a question of will he win national player of the year? I don't think anybody expected that he was going to be that. But he is that. He is, I would say in the top two or three on the favorites to win national player of the year, if not the favorite, but beyond that, he obviously wants to go play in the NBA and make a living at basketball to make his family life better. And that's up in the air because he's not a prototypical modern big man. It's hard for me to think that there's not a place still in the NBA for Dennis Rodman two. You know, and that's how I look at Oscars. Maybe you draft him in the second round and make him earn his way and prove he can do something besides rebound, but he has one skill that absolutely translates. He can rebound a better than anybody in college basketball in 20 or 30 or 40 years. And so I think you'll get a shot. I hope for his sake, he gets a shot. But that like many things and Oscar's life is a little bit unclear at this point. Okay, thanks so much for joining us today. It'll be really fascinating to see where Oscar's story goes from here.

How Unity Can Be Realized Only Through the Church

"I have to ask you because everybody has a different temperament. You have the temperament by God's grace to wade in to these really painful details and as a journalist to kind of sift through these facts and try to make some sense of them. There aren't many people doing that. My instinct for good or for ill is always to want at some point to step aside and to say, what can we do about this? Is your I'm guessing that your response first and foremost is to do what you're doing, which is to say to report on it and to try to bring clarity since there is so little. Well, I think it's really important we find reconciliation across racial and ethnic ethnic lines in the church. And the church needs to be the place that brings Americans together about what's really important because you and I have much more in common with a Christian pigmy living in the jungle jungle in Congo, than we do with a secular American, the same ethnic background as our state. Right. I want to see people gathering in the church and coming to the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ and finding the real source of unity in our human dignity as children of God made by God redeemed by Christ brought together by the Holy Spirit. These are the things that bring us together. So when I talk about these racial issues, my intention is not to divide and not to rally white people as white people. No, not at all. My intention is to is where I see people being demonized, vilified, treated unfairly because of their ethnicity. I want to object to that as a Christian.

Firm Tied to Hunter Biden Brokered $3.8B Deal for Cobalt Mines to Chinese Company

"Hunter Biden's firm helped Chinese company purchase rich cobalt mine in $3.8 billion deal. In investment firm that counts Hunter Biden among founder, its founders helped the Chinese company purchase one of the world's most lucrative cobalt mines from an American company. Biden established the firm, bohai harvest RST, equity investment fund management, with two other Americans and some Chinese partners in 2013. Hear that? Hunter Biden? Started a firm with Chinese partners in 2013. No, no, no, but hey, the real problem? Is moms and Grand Junction that show up at school board meetings? Who get their entire house searched by FBI agents? The American members controlled 30% of the Shanghai based operation and served on the board. I'm reading from Fox News dot com. The company notably completed a deal in 2016 that saw a Congo cobalt and copper mine transfer from an American company to a Chinese outfit. For the sum of $2.65 billion. Bhr served as a minority stakeholder to buy out around $1.1 billion of shares from London mining of Canada, who owned a portion of the Congo mine. Chris Clark, a lawyer for Biden, says he no longer holds any interest directly or indirectly in either VHR or scans. But Chinese business records reviews reviewed by Fox News in April 2021 showed that Hunter Biden continued to hold a 10% Chinese private equity firm stake in ball high harvest RST equity investment fund management through hunters, company.

If so when did it become so or was a focused mostly on trade slash kaga. That is a great question and it's not an easy question I mean this is relatively simple straightforward answer But it's one that requires a little bit of context as well. So singapore Was is as alex says very important port and nowadays will up until pre covert you know we kind of saw as a portrait world cruise ships would pull into There was obviously local crazy. There's been local cruising resuming in singapore with with dream cruises not something but You know historically the line.

Along with things called tramp steamers which you'll see us to carry basically just goes and then i had combination line as well which was small compliments passages and large complement of cargo but the majority of the cargo travelled by ships that also traveling with passengers and in many cases the males as well because that Postal service was the the the subsidies where the backbone of the shipping lines in the early in the early days all the way up until the age of the jet so for singapore It it was an important port for multiple reasons kogo and and Mayo notwithstanding also for passengers because the singapore obviously with at that time was part of the british empire And so britain had connections into into singapore and for example would operate into singapore And also into other major asian ports from their hub in In the gulf of suez and then later when the suez canal was cut through they they obviously do the direct voyages that would go through from the mediterranean under originate in great britain.

Remembering Jamaican Producer Lee 'Scratch' Perry

"In a realm where eccentrics are taken for granted. Jamaican musician Lee Scratch Perry was singular. Perry was a hugely influential producer and not just in his home genre, Reggae but in dance, music, hip hop and beyond. Perry died in Jamaica on Sunday at age 85. NPR's Anastasia Sulcus has this appreciation. Lee Perry got his nickname from a song he recorded early in his career chicken Scratch. Good. Someone like chicken scratch. He also called himself the upsetter. It was an apt description on many levels. He had a habit of having acrimonious splits with former mentors and artists he previously championed. You'll never get away from me. I am upset at Perry's own studio Black, Ark. He worked with many of Jamaica's biggest talents. Including junior Mervin, the hep tones, the Congo's and Bob Marley's band. The Whalers. Mr. Brown is a clown rides through town, even thoughtful. Black Ark. Was like a chemistry lab for Perry's sonic experiments. He was a pioneer of dub, underlining the base and adding reverb to create lots of oral space. He also sampled before most people knew the term or the technique used found sounds and even buried microphones underground to get the effect he wanted. Perry's partnership with the Whalers ended badly he secretly sold tapes they'd made with him to another label and kept the money. Years after building his fame studio, Perry reportedly burned it down. He was an impish, erratic presence, often in his later years, sporting neon colored hair and beard and fantastical

"You have to invoke emergency authorities and one really interesting thing about this case which was pointed out by Amy Maximun of Nature Magazine. This is another project we supported a multi part series on <hes> the Ebola outbreak in I recommend you all go to the website and find it. <hes> is that W._H._o.. Has Been Treating this outbreak very differently from the past outbreak in West Africa. They've been taking it seriously from the beginning. Although they haven't declared an emergency until now they have been <hes> working hard to get supplies as in the free vaccines from Merck to the extent that they're available and other things into the region so <hes> you know it's very serious. This declaration of an emergency may allow them to actually seek more funding. They only have half the funds they need at this point in donations nations <hes> so I think that that's really important and the health workers who are on the ground <hes> you know Amy's reporting has shown are themselves at risk not only of catching ebola but of being shot and killed as has happened so David how concerned how concerned should we be that this outbreak could get as bad as the one that was the twenty fourteen twenty sixteen one one of our listeners Sherry emailed. My daughter is in the Peace Corps serving in Tanzania. The spreading east of Bulla is a great concern turn from the experts. I would like to know if they feel. Tanzania is in danger of infection soon and Tanzania and Congo Sheeran East West border on opposite sides of Lake Tanganyika David Right so what I've seen from the W._H._o.. Is Basically they say they. You think this will be confined to the region. It is currently in now. I I don't know geographically how big the risk of it is. Spreading far across Congo's borders. I do know that they are not closing the borders entirely at the moment <hes> for humanitarian reasons and also for security reasons they saved they closed borders the militant groups that are active. It'll it'll only get <hes> you know people would be travelling illegally across borders and things will get more complicated <hes> so they're not closing the borders. They say it will stay state in this region but we have not seen the sort of response from the U._S.. For example that we saw during the West Africa Crisis Barack Obama had an ebola czar and it was a big government response there. This has been much more led by the W._H._o.. This time around it's a different response. We're still a fraction of the number of cases in the West Africa outbreak and I think that W._H._o.. Has said they think they can contain it within the next year or two. That's a long period of time but they could get to zero then so that's that's my current read. I'm Joshua Johnson. You're listening to one A.. Let's shift a little north from there. In Africa to Sudan the leaders of Sudan's pro democracy opposition and the country's ruling military council reached a deal to share power our now Sudan has been in turmoil since the military removed the previous President Omar Al Bashir that happened back in April. There'd been months of peaceful protests and then the military killed at least one hundred twenty eight people in a crackdown in June. Now this is not the first time we've heard about a power-sharing deal. There was talk of a deal two weeks ago last week. The military said it had foiled a coup attempt. Is this a real thing. Do we know the details of this like what is this. What does this look like right now? In your yeah well <hes> this is a real breakthrough for the pro democracy movement WHO's been protesting for months and months and months really since the ouster of the thirty year serving dictator Tator <hes> Bashir Omar Hassan Al Bashir who was a war criminal for <hes> the abuses <hes> in Sudan and south Sudan Darfur <hes> and he has been for many many years wanted by international prosecutors executor's for war crimes but whenever he traveled in Africa nobody ever turned him in <hes>.

"I wanna give you something that. We shouldn't worry about. We should fix. In the worst thing, we can do is mock a warning like this. The worst thing we can do is avoid looking at it. The worst thing we can do is avoid it for political reasons and I'm gonna show you with the documentary, or I'm sorry, the film Chernobyl, I'm gonna show you how this is very similar to what we're doing right now. But let me give you just one topic. Ebola. We all know how deadly bully as we all know that. It's it's ground zero in the in the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Well, if you're not keeping up on a bull news, which, I don't, you know, generally, don't get the newsletter from bullet dot com. But if we were getting the daily newsletter, you would know that we are now looking at the biggest outbreak the most deadly outbreak of Ebola yet. And where is it? It's centered in the Congo. However, it is spreading beyond the Congo. So here we are. Looking at a few facts Cording to the World Health Organization. The confirmed cases of Bulla have exceeded two thousand in the DRC. Now, I stand corrected is not the largest, it's the second largest directly behind the two thousand fourteen twenty six epidemic. Do you remember what happened in two thousand fourteen thousand sixteen? Somebody got onto a plane and it reached our shores. Luckily, we knew who that person was we knew who those people were, and we cured them here in the United States because they were doctors but we knew exactly who they were. And we quarantine them, do you remember one of the planes that we had to get was a quarantine plane so they were completely isolated in an isolation chamber in that airplane? Now, it Bolla is spreading across Africa. It's no longer contained in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Yesterday. It was reported that it hopped the border over into Uganda. There was a young patient, five years old, that died has to relatives that also tested positive. The department of border patrol. Now, this is where it starts to get interesting for us. The department of border patrol just apprehended a large group of people from Africa. Press release from the border patrol announced on may thirty first that they add have apprehended one hundred sixteen people from Africa trying to cross the Mexican border now of these there was a large group or contingency of those from the Democratic Republic of the Congo again, that's where A Bola is having its its rebirth, and they are not the only people coming in from the DRC to the United States through Mexico Cording to the agents assigned at the eagle pass station. On June fifth. Our border patrol arrested a group of thirty four people from the continent of Africa since may, thirtieth more than five hundred people from Africa. Have come in these groups are primarily made up of family units from the Congo. Now. Where are they? Well, we don't really know we know some of them are in San Antonio. We also know that some of them are now in Portland, Maine. Another group has come in. From the Congo about three hundred fifty migrants. They came through Ecuador to our southern border. They came in there now saying that they because they're fleeing a war zone. That they need asylum. The, the plan is for three hundred and fifty of them to travel from San Antonio to Portland, that's main, by the way. But Portland, Maine said, please don't send us anymore. We're already stretched way beyond our capacity. So now they're looking for other cities that these migrants from the Congo can be sent to. Now this doesn't mean these guys have Ebola. This doesn't mean that we shouldn't take them in if they are really truly fleeing from a war zone. This means we should not dismiss the fact that ISIS was in the Congo recently doing something we don't know what and here's a group of three hundred and fifty people from the Congo, that found themselves able to get across our southern border, somehow or another. They don't speak Spanish and they don't speak French, but they got onto a plane. They flew to Ecuador. They made it all the way through Mexico and across our border without speaking. A word of the language, that's odd the other concern. And this is where it really is should be concerning because we are screening, so many people the physicians at our border are overwhelmed. Ebola is difficult to catch you have to isolate for at least twenty one days, this is why we had something called Ellis Island. If you had a deadly disease, you're quarantined for a while to make sure if you were coming from a place with deadly disease that you weren't bringing it into the United States, but we're not doing that anymore. And if anyone thinks that ISIS just wouldn't weaponize people. You're out of your mind. But why worry about things that are not going to happen, that's going to be called hateful? That's going to be called a mongering that's going to be called everything other than what it is. A truthful look at the facts. And a warning that it may not be these people, it probably isn't, but we should be screening for Bulla and we have a problem on the border. This is a catastrophe of global significance. Just waiting to happen. But we have to be willing to face the truth. But truth is a hard thing. We're going to get to that coming up in just a second. The lesson learned from. You spend more time in.

Some believe the group is linked to Islam estate professors Stig yellow Hanson is the author of the Sahel, the whole in the rift, the new foot lines of jihad and joins us now from German, fifty kilometers, west of Oslo. ADF we've used to describing as an Islamist group links to you can. But it hasn't always been that way. We're not entirely has it. No, it's, it's kind of complex group. It's in fact, it's a merger of two different groups. One of them was linked to some of the radical mosques in Uganda, and another one was linked to a local ethnic group who wanted more as governance, and this these two groups they fused together, basically, the inference of Sudan, and also the regime in Congo Mobutu's, as so this is going back a few years. Of course, it's been there for many years, and it survived a lot of government offensives, and it has a tendency to return back into business after being predicted to disappear and the after suffering battlefield defeats. So what are the questions? Now is does it really have a link to his logic state or not? There has been a lot of developments of the LA over the last two years. Basically, the first indication was in twenty seventeen where there was video surfacing out of Congo of a small group declaring leaders today's logic state, and then we will we have seen that Islam state webpages and Islam state, affiliated. Broadcasting institutions have, basically the published and redistributed videos from the Congo. And then we also see that court case, no ongoing court case where there are indications in Canada. There has been some kind of connections but it is a it's a complex organization. So it might talk about the off some of the we might talk about one of the camps inside the turned into an Islamic state affiliates. Or we might talk about the whole organization. It's not entirely clear yet, but we have seen a growth of indications that there are linkages between the. Parts of that organization and Islam. And of course, it's one thing to have. Let's say I g logical similarities with, with Islamic state perhaps or tour inspiration from that group. It's quite another to receive training from his fighters to receive weapons to save money. Is that much evidence that any of that is happening in the evidence is connected to ongoing court case until the in Kenya that alleges that there have been some connections when it comes to fun gathering, but the that court case has not been settled yet. So. The evidence is not clear so far. It also seems to me that the has quite often been a useful group to blame for the Congolese authorities. There's some doubt that the F is prominent as the Congolese military would have you believe is. I think it's the ATF has always have relatively unclear borders. It's hard tra- stabbed where the organization ends and the situation in this part of Congo makes it even more complex because there's a lot of armed groups there. The so-called my migrants that are activists wells. So it's sometimes very hard to know who's doing what? And in addition to that a death was actually integrated into the local economy in the late ninety s partly by the can release regime. So they have a lot of contacts networks, and it's hard to know where the organization ends and just their funders.

Visit CNA certification dot org for details. Hello and welcome to world weekly from the financial times. I'm getting Rachman today. We're looking at a country in the midst of dangerous political crisis. I'm talking not about Britain or the US, but Congo Democratic Republic of Congo held presidential elections last month, which briefly held out the prospect of a peaceful political transition in a country with a tragic recent history, but it appears that the elections have been stone and the country is now once again poised on the brink of disorder joining me here in the studio east Africa correspondent Tom Wilson on the line Africa editor David pilling chum. A lot of the evidence of fraud has actually come from research by the F T. Can you explain what you found? Yep. Suddenly said last week last Thursday to be specific the Congolese electoral commission announced that opposition leader Felix shisha caddy had won the vote defeating the president could be happening success and not of the opposition celebrated. That is a great victory is. It's the first time inferior opposition nita's defeated or one presidential election, and it could have led to the first transition of power at the ballot box. But almost immediately alarm bell started to be raised specifically by the Catholic church, which ran the biggest election observation mission in the country. They had already been briefing diplomats at that point that in fact, a different opposition leader Martin for you had one and the day after the electoral commission announced their results, they came out publicly on the record and stated that the electoral commissions tallies. Did not reflect the information that it had gathered from forty thousand observers around the country. So Mr. for you took that information and petitioned the constitutional court immediately calling for a recount of the vote, and those a lot of reaction among the diplomatic and political sphere in Congo financial times along with two other meteorologists nations then received a data from a whistle blower purporting to be the files downloaded from the electoral commissions sensual vote. Database. We analyze those and found that Mr. for you to one fifty nine point four percent of the vote, according to that data defeating the proclaimed Witter features to Kenny by a massive margin. He anyone nineteen percent of the vote. According to those figures why USA conference because a rod those figures run to forty nine thousand lines of code. I used 'electronic voting machines. Exactly they did for the first time the electoral commission introduce toy voting machines in December. Ironically, the opposition candidate for you to in particular, criticized the potential use of those machines warning that they might be used to rig the vote. The irony is that it seems that those voting machines may deliver Mr. for you do the transparency's now demanded because we're told that the data leak that we've received are the 'electronic tallies that was stored by those voting machines and sent to a central database the whistleblower that we spoke to confirmed there had been downloaded from that database, and then our data analyst here at the F T was able to process them number one. On the way in which the data was presented the volume of the data the orderly way in which the figures had been laid out on the page, the use of commerce separated values all let strongly to the idea that this has been exported from listing system would have been very very hard to Tampa with. But most importantly, we were then able to run that data against the tallies that the Catholic church is observers had made an even though the Catholic churches tallies represented a sample of forty three percent of the vote so not all voting stations. But forty three percent randomly distributed across the country. We found it almost direct correlation with the results from the purportedly. Okay. So you're satisfied that the F T and others have. Now nailed the Lexus effectively being stone. Do you think anything will happen now, or do you think that this fraud in lection, ultimately is likely to stand that is the million dollar question right now? And it's a hugely pivotal moment for Congo. It's probably not helpful to guess. But I think we'll be need to consider the fact that the power now sits with the constitutional court which has to validate the announced results within one to two weeks. That constitutional court was set up by President Kabila it stacked with Kabila loyalists. And so people's confidence that that court would then decide to overrule the electoral commissions decision and either corporate recounts rerun of the election is very very low. It would be unprecedented in Congo. It wouldn't be unprecedented in Africa. The Kenyan constitutional court did exactly that in the last election. But in Congo, people main very skeptical whether that's possible and David I mean, looking bit further back I in Congo has had really a very tragic history. More or less since independence. And indeed the statistics of the numbers of people who've died or lost a lot of direct or indirect in war in Congo already. Staggering on them they are. And I think it's important that to realize that congress had a tragic history, not in a sense dependence. But before independence, I mean, remember this was the position of king Leopold. The second postal position. And it was turned into a giant rubber plantation where farmers who didn't meet their quotas had their arms chopped off. This has been a nation that was brutalized run from the start and had a very difficult birth and said really the modern world of the modern nation state with almost no graduates because even though it was taken over by Belgium as a former colonial Leopold still a very brutalized place. And so yes, it's had a very difficult history. It's a vast country two-thirds the size of Europe with virtually no roads, very difficult to get around. So you have different groups in different parts of the country ready with very little interaction. And there's been lots of militias has been lots of outside interference. There's been lots of interest in Congo because of its vast mineral resources, and so the extractive relationship that Congo has suffered at the hands of the rest of the world has really continued into the modern age, and that is what. Congo suffers from now you've really had in the sense kind of collusion between the elites that control Congo or control bits of it because you can never really control the whole country and outside interests, which have been more interested in congas mineral resources, it's copper an increasingly it's cobalt, which is running our iphones, and we'll run our electric cars. So it's not still essentially the background explanation for why Mr Kabila is unwilling to cede power to somebody who would actually cost him out of infants because there's so much money at stake. I think so yes, I mean, Mr Kabila has been in past seventeen years. I think he's got used to it. I think maybe he could disappear and he'd be fine. But there's a whole entourage around him whose wealth whose position really depends on the patronage networks that he has set up and for them. There would be nothing worse than a genuine change of a thirty. And so I think there's been an unholy. Struggle to stay in power. And if they can't stay in power than to make sure that they can control whoever is in power, nothing that as the backdrop to what's been going on, and Tom obviously the moment, it looks like Martin Luther was the person who won and to a lot of hopes would be invested in if somehow he could emerge as the Victor. And yet Congo has had a history of people coming to power, indeed Kabila's father and people saying well at lost as a political change. And then the next ruler wasn't that much better? And some people have raised question marks about fire, you lose relationship to very rich businessmen. And so on you know, the man what you make of him. All mine to actions with Mr. feeder to date of demonstrated that he seems to be a man of character. He had a career in the private sector for thirty years. He worked for Exxon Mobil for most of that time returned to Congo to start a political career to stop to the millennium was elected to parliament in two thousand six and since then it's been a very staunch and quite an honorable critic of the government's the first time I met him. It was in a tiny political party office with no electricity. He was sitting in the dark shuffling papers doing the typical day to day. Grunt welcome politics. And that is really what he's done for most of the last decade. And he was only really thrust into the limelight in the past twelve months as a potential consensus candidate for this office group of political opponents, and I do believe that that is potentially his strength. And there's no telling what he would be like as the president yet. And we all know the potential of power to corrupt and change us. But the one of the potential opportunities for. Congress. The fact that on coming to power didn't have a huge support base. He was a consensus candidate. And thus he would have to rule and govern in a conciliatory inclusive way David Geffen without some took Leamy. What about the argument that Congo after all these years of war exploitation, and it's huge size that you mentioned is lack of infrastructure, essentially, it's almost ungovernable I suppose that is one way of putting it it certainly a very hard task for anybody. And however Gouda person mutton failure is an I don't know him. So I can't vouch me. But even if he were an absolutely impeccable leader with a good plan, you know, he'd be taking on a hugely difficult task. We also have to remember that to some extent he is representing the people who are behind him, for example, moist consume be who was the governor of ca- Tanga state note, Mr. cocoon big was very close to Joseph Kabila. President until they fell out and some people say that Mr. zombie is a very good businessman. Ran ca tangle well, other say he's pretty much cut from the same cloth. One shouldn't expect too much more from him than others. So all I'm saying is don't hold your breath. Both in terms of the groups who have come forward to seize power, and in terms of the country that they will be faced with because as you've mentioned the has some of the worst statistics in terms of child mortality in terms of longevity and crippled health service and a very poor school system. It's really a very difficult place. I suppose one could say is that half properly governed the only way is up, and there are resources, I mean resources have been the curse of many countries. But that is a wealth in Congo that properly harnessed does provide a basis, of course, it's. The Congo river, huge hydroelectric potential, for example, if you had these leadership you could begin to turn the country around, and it's so big and so important that that could be very influential for the whole continental. So that made the whole southern and central part of the continent, which raises come doesn't it? The question of will waters, the rest of the southern half of the continent regional leads Asians make up on this because it's in nobody's interest to have a massive failed state there is there any sign that they're going to try to intervene, or is it just too much to take on so far the messages have been completely mixed. The starting point would be to say that if any of the regional groups the African Union or the Southern African Development community came forward and demanded on mass recount that would be quite unprecedented in Africa for the African governments to turn normally the policy is we don't interfere in elections unless there have been serious human rights violations for them to step in and challenge. What on the face of dukes like an opposition victory? Anyway, would be unusual that said. Clearly elements within the African landscape who are not happy with what they've seen was particularly mixed messages coming out of South Africa, where there appears to be a split between president Ramaphosa who would appear to be more open to an intervention, according for a recount and members of his foreign ministry who have seemed to side more strongly with the regime in the interest of maintaining stability, we will know much much more after Thursday when Sadak and the other regional groups will meet to the African Union that's going to be an absolutely vital meeting and whatever statement comes out of that will have huge impact. Okay. And find what from you, David. I mean, it's notoriously hard to predict how these things are going to play out. But it looks like this is a new period of instability for Congo, which historically has ended in violence is
