Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu on Forbes most powerful women 2021 list

Published

Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu Hassan has been named on Forbes’ list of the world’s most powerful women in 2021.

The list which includes politicians, celebrities, and businesswomen have been compiled for the past 18 years with billionaire philanthropist MacKenzie Scott taking top position this year.

Scott is the third richest woman in the world, but it’s her unfettered access to that money—and her determination to donate it in a way that is meaningful and revolutionary—that puts her above the competition.

“We are all attempting to give away a fortune that was enabled by systems in need of change,” Scott said this summer.

Just behind her at number 2 is US vice president Kamala Harris, she has moved up one spot swapping places with Christine Lagarde, the president of the European Central Bank who is in the third spot.

The publisher says that while the people on the 18th annual list of the World’s 100 ‘Most Powerful Women’ come from 30 countries and territories and work across finance, technology, politics, philanthropy, entertainment, and more, they are united by a sense of duty.

According to the editor, Maggie McGrath, President Samia Suluhu Hassan has been instrumental in implementing Covid protocols in Tanzania.

“All of these women represent the driving thesis behind the compilation of the list: it’s not just enough to have money or a position of power.  A person must be doing something with their fortune, voice, or public platform,” reads part of the statement.

The list also includes Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, whose outspoken adherence to freedom and democracy in the face of increased pressure from China vaulted her 28 spots to number Nine.

Canadian doctor delivers ‘Miracle’ baby on flight

Published

A Canadian doctor has told of her joy after delivering a “Miracle” baby on an overnight flight to Uganda.

Dr Aisha Khatib, a professor at the University of Toronto, was about one hour into her Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Entebbe when the call went out.

A Ugandan migrant worker travelling home from Saudi Arabia was about to deliver her first child.

The baby, early at 35 weeks, was born healthy, and was named Miracle Aisha, after the doctor.

Dr Khatib, bleary-eyed from a gruelling work schedule back in coronavirus-plagued Toronto, was enjoying a well-earned rest on the third leg of her trip.

But she did not hesitate when a voice on the intercom asked if there was a doctor aboard.

“I see a crowd of people gathered around the patient,” Dr Khatib told BBC News.

At this point she was assuming it was a critical situation, like a heart attack.

“As I got closer see this woman lying on the seat with her head toward the aisle and feet towards the window. And the baby was coming out!”

Dr Khatib was helped by two other passengers – an oncology nurse and a paediatrician from Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

The baby was crying “robustly”, she said. Following a quick check, she passed the infant to the paediatrician for a closer inspection.

“I looked at the baby, and she was stable, and I looked at the mom and she was OK,” says Dr Khatib.

“So I was like, ‘Congratulations it’s a girl.’ Then the entire plane started clapping and cheering and was like ‘Oh right, I’m on a plane and everybody is watching this.’”

“WE HAVE FAILED TO SEPARATE THE TWINS” – ZAMBIAN DOCTORS

Zambian Medical Doctors have finally decided that the country’s latest conjoined twins, Joshua and James will not be separated due to the intricate nature of the anticipated operation.

Clinical Care and Diagnostic Services Director, Dr. Alex Makupe has disclosed to Diamond news in an exclusive interview that a team of experts has resolved not to go ahead with the operation to separate the children.

He has explained that carrying out the operation would be devastating to the parents as one child will have to be sacrificed.

Dr. Makupe says in the next few weeks a house will be found for family in Eastern Province where they will be accompanied by a social worker as well as a physio therapist for continued monitoring.

The six months old conjoined twins were born in Eastern Province.
