  • Former allies sue Mugabe and Zanu-PF - Africa | IOL News

    AP In this file photo Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe, right, arrives for the heads of state meeting of the annual AU summit, held at the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Harare - Two former allies of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe whom he fired last year are suing the 91-year-old leader and his Zanu-PF party for unfair dismissal and for breaching the party's constitution, court papers seen by Reuters showed. Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980, changed the party's constitution ahead of Zanu-PF's December congress to allow him to appoint his two deputies himself rather than having them elected by the party. Rugare Gumbo, once the Zanu-PF spokesman, and Didymus Mutasa, the party's former secretary general, say in their lawsuit, which also targets a former party chairman, that these changes were illegal.

  • New details revealed about the origin of Aids

    HIV-1, which causes Aids, is composed of four groups, each coming from a separate cross-species transmission of a simian version of the virus from apes to humans. Previous research identified chimpanzees in southern Cameroon as the source of HIV-1 group M, which has infected more than 40 million people worldwide and triggered the AIDS pandemic, as well as the geographically limited group N, identified in only about 20 people. The new research, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, showed those groups originated in western lowland gorillas in southern Cameroon. “Thus, both chimpanzees and gorillas harbor viruses that are capable of crossing the species barrier to humans and causing major disease outbreaks,” said virologist Martine Peeters of the Institute for Research and Development and University of Montpellier in France.
