Charl de Villiers – Solo World Circumnavigator – In Musina Today!

s4

One-time Messina schoolboy, Charl de Villiers, who went on to sail around the world single-handedly, becoming the first deaf person to do so, will be at Messina Golf Club this afternoon, promoting his book about his perilous, courageous journey.

s13

If you are able, you’d do well to get along there and get the opportunity to meet Charl and welcome him back to our town.

Here’s a link to a website on his exploits; http://www.palaciosbeacon.com/home/features-sailor.shtml

Travelling To Mozambique Or Malawi? Pasop!

3996356646116_2440217112294How safe are you from Ebola? It all depends on where you travel.

A new model by Oxford University, published in the journal eLife, takes a look at the most likely explanation for the spread of Ebola.

This was because, as the university findings said, until this year’s epidemic, Ebola did not exist in West Africa. And scientists still don’t fully understand how Ebola arrived from Central Africa, where outbreaks of this strain of the virus had occurred in the past.

An explanation, according to Oxford Uni, is that Ebola’s animal reservoir, fruit bats, could spread the disease in the animal kingdom and to humans through the dense forest that spans 22 countries. And this led to the Oxford prediction that 15 countries are therefore at risk of animal-to-human transmission of Ebola by virtue of their geography.

They are: Nigeria, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Angola, Togo, United Republic of Tanzania, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Burundi, Equatorial Guinea, Madagascar and Malawi.

And Another One Bites The Dust

Just north of the Baobab toll gate, a truck and trailer were burning merrily at about 4pm today. Loaded with detergent liquid and powder, among other general goods, it appears that the truck came into the toll gate with one of its tyres burning. The driver pulled it through, onto the verge and managed to un-hook the trailer, but one of his drive wheels was already alight. Click on the pics to enlarge them

Musina’s fire department arrived with two fire engines and doused the inferno with water. Of course the mess caused a massive blockage of the N1, until some enterprising folks bund-bashed their way through the long grass on the verge, creating a track. The commercial trucks would not have been able to get past, though and the queues on both sides of the incident soon developed, kilometres long.
