In the abundance of water, is the fool thirsty? Africa is blessed with natural resources such as gold, oil, diamonds, cobalt, iron, copper, uranium, silver, bauxite, cocoa beans and petroleum etc. Unfortunately the standard of living of many people in the continent is deplorable. This is largely due to corrupt governments ruling many countries in the African continent.

Transparency International has been publishing the corruption perceptions index (CPI) since the turn of the new millennium. If a country has a CPI of 100 it is very clean. If the score is 0, then the country is highly corrupt.

Here is a brief overview of the top 20 most corrupt nations in Africa as of 2014, according to Transparency International.

=24. Mozambique (CPI score: 31)
Although the government of Mozambique has taken steps to fight corruption, its still a big problem. Corruption remains in both the public and donors, who support almost half of the nation’s budget.

=24. Sierra Leone (CPI score: 31)
Systematic corruption has caused weak governance and widespread poverty in Sierra Leone. The anti-corruption institutions still lack resources, staff and expertise.

=24. Tanzania (CPI score: 31)
Although there are comprehensive laws to fight corruption, its still a serious problems in Tanzania with bribery is often demanded in the business sector.

23. Mauritania (CPI score: 30)
Corruption has become deeply entrenched in Mauritania. Part of what fuels corruption in this nation is the insufficient information or absence of transparency about local companies, the identities of their owners, and financial report.

=21. Gambia (CPI score: 29)
Gambia’s judiciary is subject to pervasive political interference, and there is corruption in many parts of the government.

=21. Togo (CPI score: 29)
Corruption in Togo is common and those involved rarely punish. Corruption more among prison and police officers, and members of the judiciary.

20. Madagascar (CPI score: 28)
Madagascar is one of the world’s poorest countries and has had a negative growth due to corruption.

=18. Cameroon (CPI score: 27)
In Cameroon, many corrupt civil servants drive around in their expensive luxury cars. People who try to bring these corrupt officers to justice pay a high price.

=18. Nigeria (CPI score: 27)
Political corruption pervades Nigeria. The rise of public administration and discovery of petroleum and natural gas have led to corrupt practices.

=16. Comoros (CPI score: 26)
Corruption remained a serious problem in Comoros, it lacks rule of law. The nation gained independence from France in 1975. Since then it has witnessed around 20 coups or coup attempts.

=16. Uganda (CPI score: 26)
Even though the country has experienced high growth rates in recent years, corruption remains widespread at all levels.

=14. Guinea (CPI score: 25)
Rampant corruption in Guinea is hindering economic growth and increasing drug trafficking.

=14. Kenya (CPI score: 25)
Political corruption in the post-colonial government of Kenya has had a history which spans the era of the Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel arap Moi’s KANU governments to Mwai Kibaki’s PNU government. Experts estimate that an average urban Kenyan pays 16 bribes in a month.

13. Central African Republic (CPI score: 24)
Growth of Central African Republic is significantly hindered by wide spread corruption. Corruption is rife and undermines timber and diamond industries.

12. Republic of Congo (CPI score: 23)
In spite of its oil wealth, Republic of Congo is one of the most indebted nations in the world. This is largely due to rampant corruption.

=10. Chad (CPI score: 22)
Feud and corruption are blocking Chad’s economic growth. Revenue from oil is not spent responsibly. Corruption rules this nation.

=10. Democratic Republic of Congo (CPI score: 22)
As the nation emerges from a long period of violence and instability, it struggles with a legacy of entrenched corruption at all levels.

=9. Zimbabwe (CPI score: 21)
Corruption in Zimbabwe has become endemic within its political, private and civil sectors. In 2011, finance minister Tendai Biti claimed that at least $1 billion in diamond related revenue owed to the national treasury remains unaccounted for.

8. Burundi (CPI score: 20)
Despite the establishment of anti-corruption agencies, Burundi is remains a corrupt country in sub-Saharan Africa.

=6. Angola (CPI score: 19)
Corruption is a pervasive phenomenon in Angola. The current government is working on containing corruption by enacting laws and enforcing integrity systems.

=6. Guinea Bissau (CPI score: 19)
Guinea Bissau was once hailed as a potential model for African development. Today it is one of the poorest nations in the world. This is largely due to corruption among high-ranking officials.

=4. Eritrea (CPI score: 18)
People in Eritrea are living in a fear-ridden environment. Corruption and greed are rampant among the members of the ruling party.

=4. Libya (CPI score: 18)
Before the downfall of the Qadhafi regime in 2011, weak rule of law and systematic corruption had largely marginalized private sector activity in the nation. Corruption is the biggest problem facing Libya today.

Abacha 2

Former Nigeria’s head of state, late Sani Abacha stole $458 million and hid in bank accounts around the world, while thousands of Nigerians live in poverty.

3. South Sudan (CPI score: 15)

Since independence, South Sudan has taken steps to promote transparency and accountability in an endeavor to eliminate corruption. Unfortunately political will is lacking in effective implementation of anti-corruption policies.

2. Sudan (CPI score: 11)
Top ranking government officials are frequently involved in corrupt practices in Sudan. This has impacted the economic growth negatively. It is a huge challenge to do business in Sudan. Sectors like construction and transportation are prone to corruption.

1. Somalia (CPI score: cool
The Federal Republic of Somalia is located in the horn of Africa. Around 10 million people live in this country. It is the most corrupt nation in the world. There is lack of accountability in receipt and expenditure of public funds. Currently a parliamentary finance committee has been established to oversee all withdrawal transactions from the Central Bank, which is Somalia’s official monetary authority.

If the above-mentioned nations tackle corruption effectively, they will be able to enhance the standard of living of their people significantly.

What Was The Reason Belgium And Belgians In The Congo Never Used Koprowski’s Vaccine Against Polio?

By Johan Van Dongen and Joel Savage

 

Koprowski 10

Kiprowski in the laboratory.

The vaccine was indeed very easy to produce with monkey kidney cells, but the extract obtained from polio infected monkey kidney tissue was so badly filtered that only bacteria from the substance was withdrawn, and the monkey’s deadly tissue resident viruses escaped their attention. Anyone with the contaminated vaccine from Koprowski was treated as one who has a virus which did not naturally occurred in humans.

Koprowski’s vaccine was cheap in the United States and had been tested on twenty mentally handicapped children from a mental health facility in New York. He decided to produce it in large quantity in preparation to serve in Africa, but not in the United States. Even though he tested the vaccine on handicapped children, he never had a license or permission from the American government.

To implement its first major immunization, he settled in the Belgian Congo. He built a laboratory at Camp Lindi, in Stanleyville, now called Kisangani, and finally vaccinated all black animal keepers with Chat l-type vaccine. Apparently the results to him were satisfactory. As quickly as possible, he rounded up the people in the northeast of the present Federal Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi to vaccination stations. This took place in the fifties.

In the hands of Belgian doctors and nurses, the polio-active vaccine with long needles, were sprayed into the open mouths. The exact number of doses is not known, but estimates indicate that approximately one quarter of a million men women and children were inoculated with strong contaminated vaccine with Type l-Chat. The real impact of the vaccine on the black population in this former Belgian colony was heavy.  They were affected by many diseases and the causes were difficult to trace.

Koprowski 3

It was discovered that, during the polio vaccinations, two different methods were used. Hundreds of thousands of Africans were “sprayed” while contrasts to the white “caps” were given. The latter method has the advantage that when the vaccine is not viral, there are no bacterial infections in the mouth and the esophagus, because the capsule dissolves in the stomach. Why is that Belgium and Belgians in the Congo never used the vaccine or the capsule?

Belgium was aware that Koprowski’s vaccine against polio is contaminated. It was well known fact that the vaccine of Koprowski caused very dangerous side effects in 1959, including Aids and Ebola, because of a publication.  On May 14, 1956, Sabin published an article in the British Medical Journal, explaining that he has found an unknown cell-killing virus in the polio vaccine of Koprowski. In this way, the American scientist who had vaccinated only black-skinned people massively in the former Belgian Congo did not respond to this serious accusation.

Nevertheless, he was never accepted by American Congress Committee and was called to give account of how he developed a chat-type vaccine which indeed was very much contaminated with numerous serious monkey viruses. Now it stands that thousands of people in Africa have been inoculated with a dangerous vaccine giving birth to Aids and Ebola. Koprowski’s confession quietly made him to disappear from the scientific stage.

However, his work and the dying of thousands of Africans are dated and can be accounted for. It also gives evidence that Aids and Ebola, didn’t get to Africa miraculously, but both viruses were deliberately done. Some people consider this crime as genocide, demanding those involve to face the international court of law in the Hague, the Netherlands.

Pharmaceutical Disease Producing Factories Administered Dangerous Isoniazide And Sulfadiazide To Spread Tuberculosis

“Pharmaceuticals Companies Make Business With Intentionally Created Diseases In Africa”- Professor Johan Van Dongen.

Johan 2

Professor Johan Van Dongen, the former Micro-Surgeon.

According to the German scientist Wolff Geisler, thousands of Aids patients affected with tuberculosis in Africa, are not caused by the HIV virus. In my opinion he is right, because the increase of the number of tuberculosis patients in Africa, is a result of intended spread of the disease through dangerous medicines like Isoniazid and Sulfadianozide , given to Africans in tuberculosis clinics in African countries, such as Burundi, the former Belgian Congo, Uganda and Zambia. Instead of curing, the two mentioned medicines rather cause a tremendous acceleration of HIV infections amongst African people.

The WHO/IUATLD Working Group And Wolff Geisler

In 1989, the WHO/IUATLD working group declared in the “Bulletin International Union Tuberculosis Lung Disease” that HIV in TB-hospitals could have been spread as a result of unhygienic anti-tuberculosis injections, but as a former micro-surgeon, I, Johan van Dongen challenge them to prove that statement.

Again according to Wolff Geisler, remarkably horrendous numbers of HIV-infections originate only from US American or British financed and managed hospitals in the respectively mentioned countries. For instance in hospitals in Kitgum and Kagando in Uganda (where there was no recognizable USA or British finance), 10% of the TB patients, normally an average of 15% of the total population were HIV infected.

Aids Causing Factories

According to the World Health Organization, in Africa 17-55% of TB patients have HIV-antibodies. The WHO expert Slutkin mentioned 30-60% in some of the developing countries, a clear sign of intentional infection of tuberculosis patients in Zambia with HIV. The same evidence was provided by the same expert in the Chinkala Hospital, TB patients Mazubuku. 23% of the TB patients in the middle of 1987 were also infected with HIV.

Six months later, the virus was located in 50% of patients within the same hospital, after administering Isoniazid and Sulfadiazide. The same figures slightly increased in 58% of TB patients in Ndola, and in 60% of TB patients in the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka, Zambia.

In the Makalala Sanatorium in Kinshasa, Zaire, 33% of TB patients had HIV antibodies (among the staff: 4-8%), and in Chinkankata 36%. In Malawi, 50-66% of TB patients also had HIV antibodies. In the TB clinic, Centre Anti Tuberculeux de Bujumbura in Burundi, 55% of TB patients were HIV-infected in 1986, and in the Mwanza region of Tanzania, 25% of TB patients had HIV-antibodies. Moreover, the patients were treated with forbidden drugs, because in New York, 1972, about 21 people who were taking intravenous agents had succumbed to inexplicable tuberculosis before 1972.

Already written in a previous article, in contrast, patient with a cellular deficiency hypersensitivity following the polio- and cowpox vaccinations, are particularly prone to certain bacterial, viral and protozoal infections caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis TB. And then the pharmaceutical disease producing factories appear by using deadly toxic agents such as Isoniazid, produced by Teva Netherlands BV (Holland, and Sulfadiazide, produced by Pfizer in Germany.

What Is Tuberculosis?

Tuberculosis is a chronically infectious disease which generally affects the lungs. The causing agent, tubercle bacilli, is mostly passed on from person to person through coughing of droplets from the respiratory tract (lungs), and can also be transmitted onto the skin, eyes of persons in the immediate vicinity. Tubercles also can penetrate the body through drinking.

A striking phenomenon! Side Effects Of Isoniazid And Sulfadiozanide.

Hospitals, including Mbare Hospital in Harare, were suddenly full of tuberculosis patients and the people were suffering from venereal diseases at the same time, as a side effect consequence, because Isoniazid and Sulfadiazide made them susceptible for these. It is obvious that Isoniazid and Sulfadiazide are the cause of these venereal diseases because it appears in almost all infected children under the age of ten.

As described before, in Africa tuberculosis and HIV go hand in hand, but the mass spread of tuberculosis infections in Africans with Aids is not caused by HIV-infection at all. The increase in the number of African TB patients is the result of intended spread of special tuberculosis agents, and patients treated with Sulfadiozanide and Isoniazid at the end caught Aids!

Disease Factories Using Isoniazid And Sulfadiozanide

The two medicines, Isoniazid and Sulfadiazide, shouldn’t have been used as medications against TB and most certainly not in Aids patients. Only the long list of side effects gives you the shivers. Therefore we will describe a list with side effects causing a huge amount of invented new diseases in order to sell more medicines against these side effects……

TB 3

Tuberculosis patients in a hospital.

Side Effects Caused By Isoniazid And Sulfadiazide There we go! And We Are starting With:

“Anxiety, blurred vision, changes in menstrual periods, chills, cold sweats, coma, confusion, cool, pale skin, decreased sexual ability in males, depression, dizziness, ‘dry’ puffy skin, fast heartbeat, feeling cold, headache, increased hunger, nausea, nervousness, nightmares, seizures, shakiness, slurred speech, swelling of front part of the neck, unusual tiredness or weakness and last but not least: weight gain.”

There You Have It. And If You Think This List Of Side Effects Is Completed, Not at all! There Is More: Let’s continue:

“Abdominal or stomach pain, back- leg- or stomach pains, ‘black’ tarry stools, bleeding gums, bleeding under the skin, blindness or vision changes, “blistering, peeling, or loosening” of the skin, bloating, blood in the urine or stools, “bluish-colored lips, fingernails or palms”, burning of the face or mouth, –burning, crawling, itching, numbness, painful, prickling, “pins and needles”, or tingling feelings–, chest pain, cloudy urine, clumsiness or unsteadiness.

Constipation, continuing ringing or buzzing or other unexplained noise in the ears, cough or hoarseness, cracks in the skin, darkened urine, decrease in the amount of urine, diarrhea, difficulty with breathing, difficulty with moving, dizziness or lightheadedness, feeling of discomfort, fever with or without chills, general body swelling, general feeling of tiredness or weakness, headache, hearing loss.

Indigestion, itching- joint or muscle pain, light-colored stools, loss of appetite and weight, loss of heat from the body, lower back or side pain, muscle pain or stiffness, nosebleeds, not able to pass urine, pain or burning while urinating, painful or difficult urination, “pains in the stomach side or abdomen and possibly radiating to the back”, pale skin, pinpoint red or purple spots on the skin, rapid heart rate, rash, “red skin lesions often with a purple center.”

Red irritated eyes, red swollen skin, redness of the white part of the eyes, scaly skin, “seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not there”, seizures, shakiness and unsteady walk, shortness of breath, sore throat, soreness of the muscles, sores, ulcers, or white spots on the lips or in the mouth, sudden decrease in amount of urine, swelling around the eyes.

“Swelling of the face, hands, legs, and feet”, swelling or inflammation of the mouth, swollen lymph glands, swollen or painful glands, tightness in the chest, “unsteadiness, trembling, or other problems with muscle control or coordination”, unusual bleeding or bruising, upper right abdominal pain, vision changes, vomiting, weakness in the hands or feet, wheezing, yellow eyes or skin.”

“Some side effects do not need medication, because of fear, you will pay a visit to a doctor, you have to pay consultation fee, you also have to pay for the prescription and medicines and together we pay billions of dollars to the pharmaceutical industry, and  in turn they pay scientists, pharmacists and everybody else who wants to be paid in order to sell medicines for causing the above-mentioned side effects for the production of diseases.”

Pharmacists, Doctors And Scientist Paid By The Pharmaceutical Industry

Some Sulfadiazine side effects may not need any medical attention. As your body gets used to the medicine these side effects may disappear. Your health care professional may be able to help you prevent or reduce these side effects but do check with them if any of the following side effects continue, or if you are concerned about them.

And for each and every one of these checks, because of side effects you will pay a visit to a doctor, you have to pay for the consultation fee, you also will have to pay for the prescription and medicines and together we pay billions of dollars to the pharmaceutical industry and the pharmaceutical industry pay scientists, pharmacists and everybody else, who wants to be paid in order to sell medicines for causing the above-mentioned side effects for the production of diseases.

Incidence Side Effects Not known

Feeling of constant movement of self or the surroundings, hives or welts, the sensation of spinning, restlessness, and trouble with sleeping.

Healthcare Professionals Applies To Sulfadiazine: Compounding Powder, Oral Tablet Causing Hypersensitivity

Hypersensitivity side effects include urticarial rash (most common), allergic myocarditis, anaphylactoid reactions, anaphylaxis, arthralgia, conjunctival and scleral injection, drug fever and chills, epidermal necrolysis, erythema multiforme, exfoliative dermatitis, generalized skin eruptions, periorbital edema, photosensitization, serum sickness, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, and urticaria.

The use of sulfonamide antibiotics, including sulfadiazine, is associated with large increases in the risk of Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis, although these phenomena are rare as a whole.

Hematologic

Hematologic side effects include agranulocytosis (0.1%), aplastic anemia, hemolytic anemia (0.05%), hypoprothrombinemia, leukopenia, methemoglobinemia, and purpura. Hemolytic anemia occurs less often with sulfadiazine than with other sulfonamides. Aplastic anemia may be more likely in patients with poor bone marrow reserves.

Gastrointestinal Side Effects

Gastrointestinal side effects include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, anorexia, pancreatitis, and stomatitis.

Hepatic Side Effects

Hepatic side effects are rare but can be serious. Isolated cases of hepatitis and jaundice due to cholestasis have been associated with sulfadiazine. Elevated liver function tests (with a negative hepatitis panel) have been reported in at least one case associated with psychosis.

Psychiatric Side Effects

Psychosis associated with Sulfadiazine and Pyrimethamine therapy in patients with AIDS and CNS toxoplasmosis has been described in two separate case reports. In each case, tremulousness and disorientation developed within three days to two weeks after starting therapy, despite partial resolution of the size of the intracranial T Gondii lesions. No other obvious cause for mental status changes was found.

The delirium resolved upon discontinuation of therapy in each case and was reproducible upon re-challenged. In one case, the patient had elevated liver function tests (hepatitis panel was negative), which were reversible upon discontinuation of therapy. Psychiatric side effects include frank psychosis in patients with AIDS and CNS toxoplasmosis. Tremulousness, disorientation, and delirium have been reported.

Nervous System Side Effects

Nervous system side effects include ataxia, convulsions, hallucinations, headache, insomnia, mental depression, peripheral neuritis, tinnitus, and vertigo.

Renal Side Effects

Renal side effects include crystalluria, lupus erythematosus, periarteritis nodosa, toxic nephrosis with oliguria and anuria, and acute renal failure secondary to crystalluria or tubulointerstitial nephritis.

Genitourinary Side Effects

In one case, analysis of the stone fragments showed a composition of 100% acetylated 2-sulfanilamidopyrimidine, a metabolite of sulfadiazine.

Genitourinary side effects include urolithiasis.

Metabolic Side Effects

Metabolic side effects have included hypoglycemia.

Endocrine side effects

Endocrine side effects associated with sulfonamides have rarely included diuresis, goiter production, and sialadenitis.

If you swallow Isoniazid and Sulfadianozide or AZT as mentioned in one of our previous articles, then you are a lunatic.
