Villagers in Ethiopia are dropping dead from a mystery illness that causes them to bleed from their mouths and nose.

It’s not clear where the illness came from or what causes it, but some have blamed it on toxic waste coming from a Chinese oil project in the country’s east, the Guardian reports.

Imagine (god forbid) this was in Eritrea.
These mother f**kers filthy agames of this site would have made a party.
But since Karma is Eritrean friend, they are resorted to create fake news about Eritrea.
R.I.P. our peace loving ethiopians of the South.
I wish it was happening in the agames land. It will though in this year 2020 one way or the other.

It could possibly be hydrogen sulfide......Even in a lab environment, the maximum amount one should be exposed to this deadly compound is 10 ppm (0.001%) and wearing a monitor that detects H2S more than 10 ppm is a must, even when you work in a fumehood. And that should provide us the magnitude of the danger these oil fields pose to the enviroment and to their surroundings......without proper safety training and enviromental regulations. Sadly, Africa is the playground for anyone with money......

Here is a story from Niger......How France's government owned companies robbing in broad daylight Niger's uranium while leaving Nigeriens in dark - literally and metaphorically!

https://www.geopoliticalmonitor.com/ura ... s-a-curse/

Niger, a land-locked sub-Saharan nation, has the world’s fourth-largest uranium reserves – around 7% of the global total. While Niger’s uranium lights the Eiffel Tower and one-third of households in France, the people of Niger – the owners of this wealth – have lived in the dark, struggling with chronic hunger and malnutrition for years.

“Our children are already in contact with uranium. They have it in their bones, in their blood and their children will also have it,” Kalla Abdou, former driver for COMINAK told Greenpeace. “We worked with our bare hands. The mining company never informed us about the risks. We relied on what God decided,” lament Salifou Adinfo, a former driller for Areva.

“Interestingly, in France, one out of every three light bulbs is lit thanks to Nigerian uranium mining. But in Niger, nearly 90 percent of the population has no access to electricity. African countries should be able to count on fair revenue from French companies extracting their resources,” declares Ali Idrissa, the national coordinator of ROTAB, an organization committed to transparency and budgetary analysis. The “Majority of Nigeriens don’t even know that Niger has uranium, and 99 percent never get any benefits from it. We can’t continue with such an unequal partnership.”
