3:08 pm
a lot of people don't live. that's passed away a lot of bodies it's ridiculous no have no homes there's no shelter and it's really really bad here. driving down the road toward marsh harbor it becomes clear why so many people are fleeing this region of the bahamas was the worst hit by the storm. this is about as bad as hurricane damage gets as you can see the scene here in marsh harbor is nightmarish there is debris everywhere there are boats in front of people's driveways the floodwaters have not receded yet and for thousands of residents we've lost their homes here that nightmare is far from over. for many of the injured and displaced one of the only places to go is this hospital the only health facility left standing after the storm it's just. i don't know what they think this is. any minute they even check it they will even take all get from here
3:09 pm
. and they give you know hopefully you know there's no hope. it's the but. 7 it could be months before life returns to normal on abaco. some of those who have managed to evacuate may never return in the meantime there are still hundreds of others waiting for their turn to get out. marsh harbor the bahamas u.k. prime minister boris johnson has declared he'd rather be dead in a ditch and then asked for another delay to practice it he made that remark after suffering heavy defeats in parliament and being abandoned by his own brother is quitting the government anderson meant reports in london boris johnson may have suffered a humiliating defeat at attempts to call a general election but here in the north of england you could be forgiven for thinking the campaign had already begun do you want this government to take it's

3:11 pm
opposition leader i'd be. shocked thank you very much but it's time to move on and i thought i was writing the passive story i think a part there's nothing funny about the latest resignation and the prime minister's brother joe johnson quitting as junee a business minister he tweeted in recent weeks i've been told between family loyalty and the national interest it's an unresolvable tension and time for others to take on my roles. thank you the prime minister was asked about his brother's departure if your own brother come back you why should anyone else joe doesn't agree with me about the european union because it's a it's an issue that obviously didn't divides families and divides everybody but i think what joe would agree is that we need to get on and sort this thing out and so what next all seems set for boris johnson to again seek parliamentary approval to
3:12 pm
cold an election next monday but does the labor leader jeremy corbin accept that all scupper it again with boxing in boris johnson even more than he is already under a symonds out 0 westminster. nonprofit organization amazon watch has organized protests around the world for what it's calling a global day of action for the rainforest there demanding presidential change policies which they say are killing the amazon a record number of fires are burning in brazil and neighboring countries also our own house deployed 44000 troops to help but has resisted funding from she 7 leaders saying it would make brazil like a colony or latin america to listen in as well from part of state. i'm in just across the river from me to one of the largest municipalities in all of brazil the size of england that is also the most of forested and hearing on up all of the same thing is beginning to happen we were in the rain forest with a community that lives in a settlement trying to live under
3:13 pm
a sustainable development program in the jungle without knocking down and cutting down all of the trees but they themselves are under attack we saw their community house had been set on fire by illegal loggers these people calm they cleared of the rain forest and then they set it on fire put grass get it to grow and then sell the land illegally to cattle ranchers and so this is the process that is quickly deforested in the whole area of one of the richest parts of the amazon which is the state of where i am right now sudan has its 1st female foreign minister dollars among 4 women included in a newly named cabinet which is separate from the sovereign council but will leave the country until elections until elections within 3 years we're being praised for their role and bringing down omar al bashir and now they're demanding more of a say sudan's future home of all reports. is

3:16 pm
and it is also our duty to. ringback addressing a mostly male crowd now had said after a long history of exclusion it's time to give women a chance in public office. they speak to us about qualifications but look at this 60 years of rule since independence it's been a heap of failures linking qualification to james as an excuse they used to exclude women and it has no basis sudanese women have been graduating from medical colleges since 951 is it logical nobleman is qualified to take up the job as minister of health for instance. as these debates go on so then these women are starting to break new ground for the 1st time since independence a woman is appointed diplomat but didn't other women rights campaigners say more needs to be done. so scientists in the scottish highlands think they may have an

3:36 pm
i should say that the girl is acquitted. so the total. impacted our work is way less. reform but also community behavior can. count. on this is the 1st city want him to go for the 1st 3 people because. i do not suffer as physically from factor time and i just want to change how justice is their labor so i thought it was a figure like that to the staff i took to that just signed by title understand. what's going on here. all the members. i've ever.

3:38 pm
a. real under threat in the midst and decreased almost of disbelief for not just the double. blow that you're going. to matter eventually but i meant to sherry very very challenging sector not only in ethiopia. only developing countries but it's because we have our capacity by still far. we have a lot of cases happen across the case especially in countries like ours we have over a 100000000 population and. we have many cases coming to court every single day i think limit the background groups are now 3. 170 down from when you believe. this is a new will drink in suspended for 10 chambers like this which is fantastic for
3:39 pm
us because you have to be adverse court the middle east they're not convenient but this is made for. purely for the purpose of a judge inside of his own clothing or company went under and is common to both men no no no no no no it's encouraged us to thank you and on our side i know that if you look not a dash to look at the other. it is a sign of progress because you know when experienced same bears in office space for judges has been a challenge for us in this is not a number of course but this is a good beginning. that was i.
3:40 pm
was. when i was approached to take the position of this team persistence i was totally surprised. i knew that this is going to be a difficult assignment there is a lot of expectation from the judiciary the history of the judiciary and particularly under the just the secretary general has been beautiful. and. people expect that to be corrected and they want. not to morrow they wanted to be. some partition of power was a big problem the civil service was not independent the judiciary was not independent and this sort of was the source of our problem i think to
3:41 pm
begin with. as soon as we are competent longest we believe in ourselves it shouldn't be a problem to discuss who's any branch of government from asking for time to give that some belief that commitment to establish an independent judiciary.
3:42 pm
even before actually transition to government made a decision to close down this place and you know turn it into something different to enter was very symbolic a decision that was made at that point almost predicted what was about to calm himself to change in the times formation in this country some because they were him for a madonna fan you know. talking to lizzie because they have. not since gone on. in the past but in a broader sense on. a number of them because i'm going. to. present and then tendency to not since that intimate understanding how you so don't you could stand a chance. but name and. you
3:43 pm
know that was almost at the bottom of any what i report or one of the major reasons is your very existence of a place like 6 where. it glad i've rested. here without. due process of law. of torture and all this was this was this was a place. i had to partake but i have never been here. this is a place that everybody cares. and i'm going on the market because i didn't have any family member or friend hole always out listed. in the same logical. ok we have to do this in britain we don't know if i should let him
3:44 pm
undercut her. youngest son a mantra. now that we all know it took me. about oh. and. nothing because this is for for people. to come back to over not always it isn't just to going to see even the most of the you know if. you could just just feel the need. to close i would like to get a leader. in my current capacity as the president of the supreme court. i have to make sure that this will not happen like people will not be told church and that due process will
3:45 pm
be respected in our country in the future so for me this is very important because i have to see and understand what is happening so that we make sure that. you know going forward. we follow the law and we make sure that the rule of law is respected in this country. everything my confidence is getting stronger. every day and just have the depth of the problem but that same time my confidence was getting stronger for some reason for some reason i don't have the feelings that are. you know i would build a well made and i don't know how to do this but. my my my commitment is
3:46 pm
getting even bigger by the day when i grow up i grew up during the time of high the selassie and we were also part of the discontented movement students but now. i think the country has gone through many stages and. you know the current situation is probably you know in terms of democracy and rule flow probably this is the time when. you know the best of times i would say. i have a list benefactor i was never stopped by talents but i fully appreciate the talents that they will never be proved crazy in this country and every step of the way they have to struggle and they have to look for empathy but is part of that.
3:47 pm
i'm quite hopeful and bark if you hear. my dear prayers a place of hope is to. be mine here praise a place so hard working in the beautiful women. my dear praise the future. with a plummeting birthrate and families moving to the cities south korea's rule schools are shutting down one on one east meets the grandmas who is saving these schools while finally getting an education on al-jazeera. the out.

as a hero who fought colonialism and stood up to the west. 965. ian smith says white settlers declare independence from britain an event that they find robert mugabe's life and still holds his country. the black majority resisted races in the cities and out in the countryside where vicious bush war raged for years. robert mugabe a teacher turned activist emerged from prison as an articulate leader of the independence struggle we started the war in order to give our country. we have a country they did get their country at lancaster house in london in 1979. and when zimbabwe celebrated independence mugabe the overwhelming winner of elections was in power. and soon showing the rival liberation fighters what he'd do

to keep it meant to belittle and in the early eighty's the opposition crushed thousands killed in ethnic massacres atrocities that were barely noticed abroad. but there was also much to admire racial reconciliation education and health for millions of zimbabweans although later the economy declined and the invasions of white farms in the year 2000 were turning point this time world did notice. people said that this was going to happen it was going to turn into a bloodbath turn into another congress maybe this is it we're going to have to get out. it was a destructive process but they said he was correcting an old injustice and in many ways still fighting the old colonial power. the land is ours we give it to whom we
3:52 pm
please it's not the business of britain you see to tell us who to give land they do not wear that those who are given members of my by my party is irrelevant to britain. by now opposition was growing despite murder and many people ation many zimbabwe seemed ready to throw mugabe out they had a new hero morgan who said robert mugabe's earlier cheve man's will always be overshadowed by the years of oppression. do we portray it as the great liberator or do we portray him as somebody who has betrayed the liberation that the photo. i think the latter will prevail the 2 rivals ended up in government together although mugabe made sure he kept the real power and chunky violator returned to a position where he would eventually die without being is constantly sharing how hypocritical the west is and africa loves that and for that reason and i think he
3:53 pm
