a no confidence motion defeated a no confidence motion brought against the prime minister which ruled the government into crisis the reason being that a sizable amount sixteen government ministers from the president of freedom party chose to break ranks and vote for the no confidence motion another group also decided to be absent from the voting so this has caused problems as to a way forward you know different camps saying that the minister should stay work with the president the prime minister supporters saying that they should be removed that is untenable they continue within government now the no confidence motion itself was a huge sort of a shake for the government source close to the president's office told me that it was almost like a bomb had exploded with everything thrown into chaos however he said things were cooling down and he said that this is special might be a way for things to settle to allow a cooling off period so that we don't have this group moving on march to the
opposition and shaking the very balance of government. now the democratic republic of congo is not attending its own donor conference in geneva on friday saying that the u.n. has exaggerated the number of people who need aids or the violence has subsided and cost side many people have not received food aid you should lack of funding the escalating violence has displaced more than four million people within the d.r. sea and since december alone seventy thousand have fled fighting in the east to camps and they bring uganda well malcolm where we trace of refugees journey has traveled from uganda's capital kampala to the chung wolli camp where most of the refugees are settled he then headed to cosign your landing site on the shores of lake albert in the d.r. see this is where many refugees take boats to escape to uganda and finally he visits badia and a cab for people who fled the fighting and malcolm is joining us live from bernie
announcer tell us about where you are malcolm. we're in a camp for displaced people which is a collection of thousands of shelters built on a muddy slope in the town of when you're really ten thousand people staying here it's raining at the moment the shelters are just plastic see stretched over simple structures made of sticks the floor inside them is bad so you can imagine what this kind of rainfall does for the conditions of the people here they all slept here about three months ago when military attack people were caught up with machetes some were shot and so thousands fled and tens of thousands more fled across lake albert to neighboring uganda and we retrace the journey of some of those refugees starting in the chiang wali refugee camp in uganda let's take a look at that story now. it's taken days for cooma corinne and her children to get from have village in the democratic republic of congo to the safety of this
refugee camp in uganda with two year old patrice yes. and she septic sprays just too much. life in the camp begins with frank scenes in a medical check. fled her village after her brother in law was killed by a militia with machetes. his father was left behind. when the fighting started we were serious as a people ran away but my husband wasn't around so i waited it asked to everyone least i was a sixteen i decided to run. coom is among thousands who fled to uganda since the beginning of this year most of them arrive here by boat on the shores of lake albert that borders the two countries the un registers them before taking them to the camps. to retrace their journey across the lake. in a wooden boat normally. when it's carrying passengers already. very often it
will only only we will look at all the boat and think it. was. all wrong when the rain already. going to. the u.n. says the people who took this journey are among millions of congolese in urgent need of help displaced by multiple conflicts across the country he says the crisis is neglected and he wants governments meeting at a conference in geneva to donate around one and a half billion dollars when we reach the congolese side of the lake we found more people who fled their homes many here couldn't afford the boat unlike those in uganda they receive most no assistance that the government says the un has greatly exaggerated the number of people affected by the crisis and so it's not attending the conference. back. we are not trying to deny that there is
a humanitarian problem but we don't consider it's at that level we have to avoid making a business and of the humanitarian situation which discourages investors you can bring economic development. it's clear that many congolese desperately need help chronic poverty makes a crisis much worse. with me here is even limine was a manager for the norwegian refugee council which is a humanitarian organization that works with people in some of the camps like this one around to in your state and do you have enough resources to help these people oh we have to do limits that repulses because of a lot of you know i do you base your are coming around. in a way we are in from being in and not all the n.r.c.
but also all the money to run our top story here today how limited resources because like yeah all not come in at the same time and those who were like came out threads where i sifted and you know we need to like find out at that time so we good those who are doing gods and as it stands in camp of education and when i saw we saw all the. they also said the same thing in silence of war it's income cellphone use ration it was an insult of health conditions here are clearly terrible and he had more of those what could he do to improve the situation for the people. if we have more resources i think but now who are doing champs out we have to improve the living conditions of the places where they live because that's you can see when it rains like this that far off or start up the road in most of the shell paused and you know start thinking for a very small resources but that's what the we in the shelters are we have to
improve living conditions and also the case john we have to like. expand you know like to include small schools because for now we only have seventeen schools dealt with like i said and i got to understand yes is lost children who want to run this as i.g.p. to a local route who are not in the displacements com that's the. case in the city thank you very much stephen i was leaving the mean. refugee council is the chassis which works in some of the camps like this one around the town of grain getting heavy here so thank you in doha malcolm thank you very much for that joining us live from that refugee camp and thank you. now u.s. vice president mike pence is planning to meet venezuelan opposition. cheering friday some of the america is the mission as part of regional efforts to increase
pressure on that is where the president. is blaming egypt for the failure to reach an agreement with a dab project where talks on the ground project in ethiopia ended with no agreement between the three countries that will be the largest in africa costing five billion dollars egypt fears it will significantly reduce the amount of water flowing downstream. seen the lack of seriousness and cooperation from the egyptian side and that's the reason for the failure of the khartoum negotiations egypt proposed the one nine hundred fifty nine agreement in the negotiations we renew our position by rejecting this agreement because ethiopia was not part of it and therefore this proposal is a red line and rejected by all means we do not recognize any agreement that we were not a part of the collapse of negotiations is the result of egypt introducing this old convention as an option.
