11:03 am
constitution. and just as he told his own the entire stadium to cheers right now is standing outside greece is very much a case of come out the girl out of kenyans out you can see here just i think maybe just the mere fact that it's all over and our money you know purchase election period is over it and there's an old excitement. and there's a lot of excitement in knowing what the president. and his plans for the country millisecond. and of course a kenyatta one of the result of the election by and with ninety eight percent of the vote but we do know that the country is still deeply divided politically how can you want to given any indications how he plans to unite the country. well he said it was now that he before the inauguration of president clinton at any theme

11:05 am
electoral terms that. they say that it has much of think once i log in this much as they want unity there must be a credible pull that takes place and that's credible poll can take place within the next three months and that's that irreducible minimum at the security point to have a credible call to kenyans can actually move forward but on the other hand you have you know security saying that you know it's just a matter of dialogue and moving forward so we're still some sort of a standoff but almost a peaceful kind of the now captain in london in nairobi thank you very much. now pope francis is a man moscow after maybe dollar for several highly anticipated meetings including with the leader unsung sochi international rights groups are urging francis to speak out against the persecution of the muslim minority i talked to our correspondent boston hartigan man mark in just
11:06 am
a bit but first his report on what the small christian community in the country hopes from the pontiff visit. the church courtyard to yang gone are bursting at the seams this week hundreds of thousands of believers have flocked from all four corners of the country wanting to see the pope and many of them are young. to resupply and i was part of a catholic youth group from pitchin state in the north of me and mark. a region that's been plagued by a war between the military and ethnic rebel armies one third of the population there is christian. for teresa and most of the others in the group it's their first ever trip to the big city so they're eager to set out and explore. most of all they want to experience the pope. they hope to return home with the
11:07 am
courage to make their country a better place. in our area there is civil war there is no place and i don't want the approval of president we are here to receive the pope's message of peace and to pray together. i need tell you that i want and that's important i hope that can bring us peace to name him up will be mean to me alone i say to him i don't know she does in a country right with ethnic and religious tensions many believe the pope's message of nonviolence and understanding could help me and mar overcome its numerous conflicts. and no conflict currently looms as large as the one between the army and the muslim rule hinge a minority that has displaced more than half a million people in just a few months. when isn't imaam in yet gone he heads an organization that is working to strengthen ties between youths of different faiths he's aware of the debate of
11:08 am
whether and how the pope should weigh in on the sensitive issue of the road. for the sake of me and mars muslims he wants a clear statement from the pontiff what muslim population hoping from. you know. people have been using the term genocide when a part of the. happening this genocide and it is also the time when the messenger. of peace it's visiting he must have mentioned about that situation to research her friends have made it to one of the most sacred sites in the buddhist world and me and mars most famous landmark the shrader gone pagoda she says she feels welcome here in spite of her religion she wishes everyone in myanmar could also say that about the country. and.
11:09 am
pope francis can unite the different religions and foster love between people of different faiths as this is what i hope and believe. it's a noble wish but in myanmar's current reality it seems it will take nothing short of a miracle to make it come true. and for more on the pontiff's visit to me and i'm joined now from young going by our south-east asia correspondent bos'n harvey boston the pope is meeting unsung sochi at this very moment what can we expect from this meeting. well of course rita the over the over the issue that's been overshadowing this whole trip of the pope so far is of course the issue of the road in northern rakhine state so for sure they'll be talking about that but there are other issues that they could be
11:10 am
talking about as well for example yesterday when the pope met the commander in chief of myanmar military he talked about the responsibility that the authorities have in the transition process of the transformation process because of course this is a country that has been under military rule for decades and just a few years ago started opening up in the government that uncensored she is defacto heading just took office last year so this is a very delicate process and there have been some setbacks as well in recent months and in the past year or so maybe you'll be touching on that as well and then of course there are so many conflicts that this country is facing it has its home to some of the longest running internal conflicts in the world for example in catchin state where the people who we saw in the report are from many of the people there are christian and many have been forced from their homes tens of thousands living in refugee camps in that area because there is an armed conflict going on between
11:11 am
me and maher military and ethnic rebel groups and there are similar situations in other ethnic areas as well so there is a lot to talk about not only the ranger issue even though that will of course be at the top of the list every day and a bus and this is a very historic visit because this is the pontiff first visit to me and my what kind of deception has he been getting from the civilian and military leaders. you get reactions of the whole you get the whole spectrum really yesterday when he arrived here in yang gone many people went to the airport to greet him thousands of people lined the streets of yangon to wave when he passed. by in his car to the residence where he was staying here so those were mainly christians of course and on the other side of the spectrum you also have buddhist nationalists who taken to social media for example to express their feelings about about about the visit of
11:12 am
the pope and they're very angry because they feel like he's been taking sides with the room a group of people who they don't like at all and so there they feel like he's interfering in internal affairs so really their reactions all across the board i'm reading boston heartache in the young one formerly known as rangoon thank you very much for that update. let's all take a look at some other stories making news around the world indonesian authorities are warning that rumbling volcano in bali could erupt soon mount a goal is shooting massive columns of smoke more than three kilometers into the sky the government has ordered the evacuation of more than one hundred thousand people the items international airport remains closed for a second day stranding thousands of travelers a flamboyant t.v. host looks set for a surprise win over the u.s. friendly president in elections in honduras salvador and australia has an unexpected lead an early election results but both sides of claim victory present

11:18 am
unfiltered exhaust fumes pollute the air in towns and cities the solution it seems a government mandated modernization program to make them clean the question now is who's going to pay for the upgrades. if manila gets its way this will soon be a thing of the past filipino jeepneys rolling down the road clouds of black exhaust in their wake jeepneys older than fifteen years must be off filipino roads by january first owners many of them taxi drivers will have to foot the bill for low carbon modifications that will be expensive up to thirty thousand u.s. dollars per vehicle the government has offered financing but drivers say they'll still have to up their fares the way for modifications could leave them without work they say. that we are not in favor it will surely take time until we get these types of vehicles on the road a lot of drivers will lose their jobs what will happen to us will go hungry.
11:19 am
drivers staged a two day strike earlier this year a tough talking president right rico to tear today responded with a threat to tow non-complying vehicles after the deadline. his government says the outcry is overblown and the need great inner city admissions are a hazard to health the emissions add to the philippines c o two output. it's an increasingly common story around the globe as governments mandate vehicle modernization change is expensive and someone has to pay for it. a storm is brewing and german politics i mean does me that's right. a european union decision to extend the license for the controversial weed killer glad to say it could end up complicating chance america's efforts to form a new government the problem is that a minister from america's conservative blog made a go it alone decision to vote for the license extension with the support of the
11:20 am
party currently in coalition with them confused let's explain. typhus eight has always been a controversial topic it pits the e.u. commission against citizens rights groups the chemicals industry against organic farmers critical scientists against support of scientists neither we kill or has become toxic to germany's acting government and is in danger in the prospects of forming a new one. e.u. member states twice before failed to agree whether to bond like was said or extend its license no decision was reached because germany abstained both times. germany social democrat environment minister supported the bond due to suspicions of the weed killer is carcinogenic and is killing off too many insects the agriculture minister from the conservative c.s.u. is on the side of the farmers and favored continued use of life was saved the lack of cabinet consensus meant berlin abstained on the previous folks until monday when
11:21 am
germany suddenly voted in favor of an extension. i spoke by phone with my colleague mr schmidt today at twelve thirty and made it clear that i was sticking to my no and that therefore germany has to abstain on this issue and cannot agree to the extension. this is and this is a serious breach of trust within the acting government i have to ask myself in light of this go it alone decision whether mrs merkel has her own people under control for america. i ignored or not i'm careful what. ahead of talks about a new grand coalition between the s.p.d. in the conservatives the timing could hardly have been worse. but the agriculture minister says he gained important concessions in exchange for his yes vote. if you let me finish i feel it is my duty in the government to take decisions that need to be taken. but i also decide based on the facts and nothing else that.
11:22 am
when he's under the vote has bitterly divided the acting grand coalition the e.u. decision to permit use of life or say for another five years cannot be revoked whatever the possible dangers no one thoughts the efficacy of life or say when it comes to killing weeds the concern is that it could kill off any chance of germany forming a new government. well the burn in a christmas market targeted by an islamist attack a year ago has opened for the festive season très people were killed and many more injured but an attacker drove a stolen truck into the crowds on the nineteenth of december last year for some caught in that attack the memories us to invade. it's one of the german capitals most popular christmas markets last year it was also the target of a terror attack we're at berlin's by chai plots.
