11:33 pm
because most of the people the brand name was there in the communities people are not benefiting people one of getting anything and most of the people making decisions on our behalf or on behalf of the communities. in copenhagen they don't choose to share borders with these animals and we think that there's a stark contrast on how people from the west and to view these animals when you look at this animal is from a book called somewhere or in dream game drive in that people would compete for the source of these animals that's when you look at it from the good. you see a generic giant something which is solved by 4 people want to scare away from their fields to scare them away from their cattle they know who it was we've lost people due to human or left conflict this year alone we've lost more than 15 lives and this is a this is something that is happening almost every day in the communities that's
11:34 pm
why we're pushing forward little communities voices to be head unfortunately not called to but did the most unfortunate thing is people pushing for that by those who enjoy those who are putting in a little money in financing but then it investing in these communities we are seeing a fantasy and i want to fight a lot in the midst we must build in 1st i want you to actually apologies but why do you think i mean east seem to be making the case yet but why do you think that you what feels awfully on is why is the international community not coming on board. we don't know i honestly can't speak on their behalf but we've tried all things possible to say the word life management issue it's a sales business issue and decisions must be based on science when you say. you did they will it will cutting capacity this is science these are not emotions this is this is must be made based on science based on faith that one of them put in

figures that they think the world must to know is global ellison's and that it did with the extinction animals in southern africa that don't facing extinction we are sitting on more than $84000.00 elephants in a small kind of legs and bob i can give you an example more than a 100 years ago we had about 4000 elephants and we had also a very small population of settlers and black natives in zimbabwe but the numbers of 20 forward for the 100 days that i'm talking about in the lead is not expanding the same thing is happening in our neighbors in need be able to plan these are the challenges that we are facing but we believe that when we believe that the best thing that we can do is to ensure that our communities have been affecting because the 1st line of defense for these animals are the communities we believe that the animals and the people these communities must see these animals is equal to me which when it is so that people good jobs for them so that people get education
11:36 pm
distance that's what we believe in because the numbers they've exceeded the political cutting capacity they're causing a lot of problems in our communities they're not only killing people they're also destroying crops with that with our people being imposed varies by these animals for no benefit to our government and their social computing needs like education you know they do other things and i think it would be asking for too much for the same government too but we are doing our best player we are saying we believe that the onion was musty look after themselves. see nash if not always spokesman for zimbabwe parks and wildlife management authority thank you. thank you mr. k. so this fantasy behind me is known by many names it's called in kenya and uganda and rwanda and cats in somalia and ethiopia chewing the plant is
11:37 pm

11:38 pm
a region where few try to stop people using the popular drug. here in ethiopia chewing cat is legal and widely seen as a cultural activity but experts say users can try to turn to other substances such as alcohol to dampen the plant's amphetamine like effects. the whole night the concrete. start. reading for increasing cost of work. for increasing the performance in the study in different walks. complain of everything from irritability to nightmares and depression here that offer treatment for withdrawal symptoms given psychological help and even work out . in this part of the capital addis ababa truckloads of fresh supplies arrive every day it's chewed openly on the streets here but many aren't convinced that cat is
11:39 pm
a cause for concern. that's not true the people who say that already addicted to alcohol and other drugs before they use cats. are working. properly. money cat is ethiopia's 2nd biggest export behind coffee and more and more farmers are now abandoning coffee and other crops to grow it as a result domestic consumption is growing. one next story we drop in on the skateboarding scene in kenya the sport is relatively new in the country but it's picking up in popularity and with skateboarding having its stay view at the olympics next year some in nairobi are already dreaming big as the corrigible found out at the biggest skate park in the capital.
