groups is 2 decades old it started in 1909 in 2000 that was the 1st round off while ins and then we saw a recurrence in 2017 and early 2018 when some 350000 people were displaced by the clashes the numbers we're seeing now more than 300000 within 2 weeks is unprecedented. the democratic republic of congo has a complex displacement picture but the rate at which this displacement has happened is unprecedented and precedented you say but you're talking about a long history of rivalry between these 2 groups and we know that there's a lot of people that have been displaced as a result of interesting violence in this country why is the congolese government seemingly not able to have the situation under control. as far as we understand this situation the military has gone in to bring things
under control but as far as we understand it and as far as people who have been displaced displaced they ringback talk what communities forming self-defense groups unleashing revenge attacks and counterattacks against each other targeting civilians horrifying accounts of killing maiming targeting people sexual assaults and rapes this is all happening and as it continues the fears are that more people could be affected you are now the 300000 is a really conservative estimate there could be war people who would be affected by this and most of these people who are investment children and men majority of them are with host communities some have arrived in the displacement side which are already there and caring for the displaced who have been displaced within you truly before this ok but this part of congo misstep a large way away with this is this violence has broken out is the same region where
we have the ebola outbreak raging what then happens to countries like uganda that's going to receive the bulk of these people that are fleeing the north eastern congo what is the what is the that the threats there. the man at the center of ebola inside the sea is the north kivu present province but also in italy there have been cases and also with insecurity with displacement the fears for this disease to spread is there but what we have seen is small numbers of refugees have been arriving in uganda let's not forget that the border between the r.c. and uganda is huge it's poorest and refugee movements are smaller in respect of of others back and forth movement ok but up a large spokesman for the office of the u.n. h.c.r.
coming to us from geneva thank you we appreciate your time. and next we're looking at security in kenya because today a call it was meant to announce the verdict of 4 men charged in connection with the attack on the university in 2015 which left nearly 150 people dead in what was one of the most horrific attacks in the country gunmen from the so malia based islamised militia stormed a university in april 2015 they took more than 700 students hostage before killing those who identified as christians and releasing the muslims before gunman was shot by kenyan security forces shot dead that is and the defendants in the current trial facing terrorism charges related to the attack. now kenya's response to terrorism has been heavy handed in the pasta after the attack people were arbitrarily arrested and detained without trial human rights watch ses the
police and military carried out forced disappearances and even killed people suspected to have links with al shabaab so does this make kenya any safer for more on this and the security situation of the country we've invited as security consultant in nairobi in windham be doing formerly served in the country's air force a defense control unit welcome to d.w. africa we have human rights watch is saying that kenya is counter terror attacks 6 have not been all that successful they point to the fact that however much force has been used it's not really resulted in preventing attacks by al-shabaab what is your assessment of the situation. thank you for having me and greetings to all of us i i want to be for a little with the human rights watch report that 10 are not hard results you know
our troops are cross the border to somalia or indeed or thank us from our troops to some idea that we've got you know immense success like in this house about but not really here back home the point isn't that what the government put in place stopping terrorists or terror cells. actually bought one for us and my assessment of the loss of peoples on our show you for sure but they result in that tremendous and since 2016 would not have been made up there was a box in nairobi until the recent one at busy don't tell so looking at the what they're after we had previously and this person and we did not been good ok we're talking about a terrorist group al-shabaab that this is that this has been called a terrorist group it's recognized as such internationally and it's say is that it is retaliating against kenya. kenya's military incursions in somalia now $11.00 does is the simple solution in the case of kenya to to pull its troops out
of somalia so that al-shabaab has no beef with kenya so to say. not at all i don't mean to get into this in somalia only 2 percent interest they have their own the. african union and actually the united nations and so. we are with your troops that we have gotten there so it's working on the for them to say it's going to pull out we'll stop talking at the start of the pack and get it before someone. all right and just just said you know i want to get your sense off in terms of ordinary people in kenya what what kind of assurances can they get that the government is on top of the situation you do point to the fact that there haven't been major attacks in a while by the one that happened in january but the point is this is still an existing threats how does the government ensure kenyans can be safe or is that just not possible. first of all government has to invest immensely
on intelligence collection. until terrorism in the wound whether enough because of europe or in an america where is intelligence critical actionable intelligence the government must invest it was a software to do security don't. frankly no one is doing a good lead follow the lead until you get something out of it leaving something out of it that it's not the right belief and so if we best governments can you know you know the government then it's going to keep our people similar to what our country has done from 20 to 16 government decided to invest in intelligence and this is what's beyond human comprehension all right when. security analyst and kenya's capital nairobi thank you so we appreciate your insight. and that is it for now from d.w.
of people suffering from hunger. programs fighting. the fight. what secrets lie behind these me. find most of experience and explore fascinating blonde cultural heritage sites. w world heritage for 60 good. the film. welcome to arts and culture d w s news from the creative world today we look at how
artists from outside the west are flipping the script at the venice biennale it also on the show. the target 1st god who wins germany's peace prize for exposing the threats that face humanity. our planet. and on our series planet berlin how a man born in turkey round up running one of the german capitals premier jazz clubs . but 1st off the venice piano is often called the olympics of the art world it's where people go to see the best of the best from around the globe also the weirdest we're. this year's top prize goes to the with the way me and pavilion for this installation called the sun and the sea it's about climate change but the piano is also expanding inside well beyond europe more than ever before non-western artists are telling their own story.
and you know you scott roxburgh is here to tell us more about that scott welcome to the show so for its 120 year history of the venice biennale it has basically been a celebration of western art it's not been very diverse how are they going to change that yeah i mean it's a big big issue i mean one of the artists of black artists a few black artists who were at the b. and all of this year called it a sea of whiteness and i think that is accurate. but and this real problem because the idea of the bee and ali is that countries come and present their ideas of themselves through their artists show what how they see themselves as a nation and so if you're not there if you're not represented it's sort of like going to the art world you don't really exist but this year it's a little bit better of the trying to address the issue of diversity and they put a focus on non-western artists and on the western countries particularly african
countries though this year there are still just 8 african countries with the billions of the band all of which is not just a great interest to start it's a start it's a start and there are some interesting ones i mean donna for the 1st time has its all 1000000000 at the be analysing the for the very 1st time they're able to present their image of themselves and of their culture in the way they would like it to be seen so well let's have a look. the opening of donna's 1st ever pavilion at this year's b.l.o. was a cause for celebration and national pride the country merely 60 years old was eager to present its homegrown artists to the world the country's 1st lady came to the inauguration as did top british architect david adding who has been in roots and to design the pavilion. this president wants to ensure that the gods was central to the development of a country central to tourism central to the soft power of the country and communicating to the world the kind of incredible benevolence of
a country and its people so that's why we're here and no small pavilion but a very large company and making a very large state with. i g.'s design plays on gun in building traditions creating a intimate space for the sensitive portraits by painter lynette. and for photos by felicia gone as 1st professional female photographer she started taking pictures at the age of 14 and captured political developments in gaza which in 1957 was one of the 1st african countries to gain independence from britain that narrative informs gone as 1st pavilion which is untitled dawn of freedom in fact a powerful statement we have read you know what does that freedom mean what did it mean that in 957 when he got on the panel that's what does it mean now how you know how is that freedom grow on not gravity. what does it mean for us to be free.
since artists from different generations address these questions each in their own way. john video installation was commissioned especially for the pavilion it's about migration climate change. and threatened environments. after the be in on the works will be displayed in gone as capital city across to be accompanied by a series of debates around the gone to freedom project. as ohio well coming to venice you know with the well heeled crowd and doing something like this but the relevance and what resonance that they actually have within the country and not just in. the air and the kind of sound to our people you know maybe 10 to glad kind of ways but in communities across the county this is very much part
of this process. it's pretty inspiring stuff scott i'm just wondering how is going to say going at this differently to european countries oh well it's interesting it's actually kind of refreshing because the sort of image of the r. and the country that comes of gone as 1000000000 is very upbeat very positive it shows how credible creative inspiring the country is a lot of the european pavilions focus on the on the negative they're very depressing but very sort of downbeat maybe god will get there eventually maybe they'll get depressed that there are but the moment it looks like there are much more inspiring than a lot of stuff to give you what would give them some time to catch up to know who else caught your eye and be a knowledge of the role of interesting sort of marginal voices maybe would say what was really interesting was from south africa south africa photographer and activist nelly wholly a she does a series of self portraits which show herself in various african dress and it's a way of sort of subverting stereotypes of africa and african women and she told us
that using these images this way as a way of taking back control of her own story and of her own images another just course this is amazing beautiful beautiful photography one other one that really caught my eye was from brazil and it was look at the dance scene a sort of alternative dance scene in northeastern brazil called swing guera and this is a really compelling i mean i know you're into dance i'm also a very very. the. dancers and performers. are also. beautiful to look at it was one of really the big highlight. for. now artiste.
