at university college london believe that other molecules found on earth like nitrogen and me saying are also present in the out misfire the exoplanet may have the conditions to support life but it's not another version of the earth it's twice as big as a smaller sun and thus far more dense and scientists currently don't have the technology to physically reach the planets or analyze its surface to determine if life actually exists there. 18 b. is one of thousands of exoplanets but being trillions of kilometers away it's unlikely humans will ever be able to reach them even though this is very exciting discovery we should wind back a little bit because it's just it indications that something that we know is far to go for life as we understand it. is present it's out of this world but it's whether that indicates that there is life there is another question entirely we know the more we learn about the cosmos the more we realize that perhaps the earth has this

5:24 pm
know i'm making a statement making right now and i'm very happy day actually has a. against all the things that they can people that we need to know as a country to visit but we need to take on this issue what is the core. and i do indeed that it is something that we can to do or no one can but as a. government we need to take responsibility with instances with us i think our community would be very happy to hear you say that especially because there are members 9 of that community who don't believe this is in a phobia so i want to share with you a few tweets from people this is for chris says it's not it's just criminal acts using xenophobia as an excuse another person says acts of criminality 8 zina phobia i don't pick that
5:25 pm
a few more times and it brought him here sums asop saying how can we stop as in a phobic attacks when the leaders of south africa don't agree in the 1st place that it is zina phobia and some people are hearing mixed messages there say i'll give this one team you what is your take on what people seem to be saying. well i mean good is good is it a few big otherwise we wouldn't have. to do it of migrants we have been the main victims of gun been looting and rioting that have been perpetrated in the past few. i want to bring in check ahead chicken i was reading your twitter feed week and i read this my 1st experience is in a phobia in south africa and then you tell a story that got so many likes and people really empathize with your story and your conclusion from the real story is quite damning for south africans tell us the story festival. well basically i had gone to south africa on october 26th team to
5:26 pm
attend to journalism events one was a c.n.n. african journalist award and one was a conference to engage civic data journalist and at the international airport in cape town i was approached by a very hostile man who claimed to have been an official at the airport he was not wearing a uniform therefore i was very wary of him and he approached me right after i had gone through immigration and just right off the bat his entire demeanor was belligerent it was hostile it was suspicion and it was just barry alarming there me off guard and he was just demanding to know what are you doing here what are you doing here what are you doing here and i told him several times that i'm here as a journalist to attend a media event and he was very skeptical and had a lot of doubt on his face and it was just very uncomfortable i had people in the airport watching me he wouldn't let me move any time i tried to go to baggage claim
5:27 pm
or go to the restroom he would physically stand in front of my my person just blocking my movement so it went on about 45 minutes until another airport official finally came to rescue me. that we've all had bad experiences at the f one how do you know just wasn't grumpy why you say you know phobic right right well i kept saying that i was a journalist and he wants my passport i showed him my passport which was and i cheer him passport and that's when i saw a lot of just. he just didn't like the fact that i was traveling with a nigerian passport i saw it on his face was like oh you're nigerian and just from there that the questions that he was answer he got he was asking me again why you here and i think me traveling as a female by myself with a nigerian passport he didn't like it and this was also expressed by the airport official who did actually come to rescue me see this was a bad experience for you a point space a point spencer south africa but why would you then go on to say. south africans is
5:28 pm
enough i think from that experience because i've heard so many other similar experiences femi i mean this is a reoccurring issue but you know this is not new this is not happening out of the blue or out of this out of a sudden and i've spoken to so many other african nationals and they express similar experiences at the airports where if you for example your physical features don't appear to be south african you're people comment come come after you also a taxi driver told me but if i were nigerian he would have whopped me he didn't know i was nigerian because i don't speak with a nigerian accent so you hear statements like this and you hear this over and over again and of course you just come to understand that there is not we don't always feel welcomed as african nationals we don't always feel welcome coming into south africa a very outspoken politician to this malema had something to say about these recent attacks and he framed them somewhat differently have a listen i said other time but in all the buses let's put all these
5:29 pm
nigerians and zimbabweans in buses let's take them back and let's see if you get it implemented. it to me is the most stupid thing to think of you. just defying cry and you give it nice knaves all just enough will be a phobia it's kind it must be dead with this such see they were decent and i said that resonated lots of people lots of people around the continent of the world as well is that your take on hal's south africans of behaving like now . i think the. government coming in. yeah but i think you know that you have to deny that it is migrant who are sitting with tiger that in hands you know you're trying to collect tries it anyhow but as
5:30 pm
you know for pick things up by denying that you know make the program disappear and i think the question that i think is quite accurate in a point you know in the argument of my lemon is precisely what you are making that the has to something a phobia is you know located in the deepening crisis in the economy where we've been losing millions of jobs particularly since the economic crisis of 2 dozen in 2009 over to me too in jobs were lost in the crisis decision hasn't gotten better if anything it has gotten worse today unemployment is sitting at over 10000000 that is about. you know. about 40 percent i think according to some estimations and i mean there are levels of poverty over 50 percent approximately 50 percent of the population in this country i live in poverty and i'm one of the black african that is you know much more west at and at
5:31 pm
the region of about $64.00 or more percent now it is this deepening levels of poverty that is a hoot cause of this crisis by putting measure in such an indication because of the we can close and the poor is deepening and there is no solution on the basis of the existing micro economy policies of this government none of the politicians. you know of been raising their concerns over this have offered any viable solution and we think it is only a break with the new debate out there to quote he says of this kept us government that we can begin to make in roots in the fundamental problems of unemployment of housing of love of us. collapsing public services and all of these programs that are these countries. where clinton and of course.
5:32 pm
see them by the mentioned poverty levels and unemployment because i'm seeing that online as well so this is julie is on twitter who says a party it created inequality south african leaders failed to address inequality in post apartheid south africa and instead some told people that the problem is having foreigners in the country the result is in a phobia i want to go on to this point picking up on that this is a director at human rights watch who says it's absolutely frightening and its rear its ugly head again in johannesburg i spoke about it on the radio and a very hostile caller threatened me scary and very little action from the police now this is the one who sent us a big comment elaborating on his thoughts on what it's been like have a listen the police job is of africa this is something that can be brought under control the. property is primarily african foreign nationals can be stalked if the policing sort of cricket was so political it
5:33 pm
doesn't sort of. ridiculous in science that a phobia with no accountability. for the leaders of the good to acknowledge that what is. just criminality each is in the phobic and they must then implement the existing national action plan to come back to the phobia in other forms of intolerances then they way i could listen to you i see you writing notes they are thinking of things to respond to it and of course a lot of people have this question so you're the best person to talk about it with but he says it politicians police aren't doing enough and in fact they're.
