our welcome to the program the nigerian navy is on high our lead after pirates kidnapped the crew of on last week it was the latest incident in a growing piracy problem afflicting the gulf of guinea off the coast of west africa the waters there now have the most anywhere in the world nigeria is at the center of our correspondent funny for a shot way into the niger delta to find out the scale of the problem and how it's affecting people there. from the outside the beautiful wetlands of nigeria inside a problematic his story we have read in the creeks of the niger delta. this region is already struggling for theft with arms trafficking kidnapping and in
recent years another business has begun to florida now. has become a hotspot for maritime piracy and armed robbery at sea. and this is where pirates operate from a labyrinth of waterways but it's not only home to criminals per could be no lives near by the river he source of income he transports goods and people but he's careful since he was attacked by pirates and. treats like misplaces when they. drive down to the creeks very far the forest the armed men wanted to take the engine of his boat when they realized it wasn't good enough they got him go they took his money in stand from then on para could be nonstop through king after sunset we are very scared. when driving on the sea or in the river because you don't know when
exactly the comps so sometimes if they are only with the kangaroo it will with all your money so i receive. is a very big problem attacks by pirates is a problem worldwide but especially in the gulf of guinea they are on the rise along the coastline of west africa. they want to be there before pirates strike members of the nigerian navy are headed out of their lagos headquarters to money toward the sea we are given rare access to accompany them on their daily patrol. we are about to call to you not to call off the coast of them this is me but not your friend deferring to. anything this is. one. good thing.
is responsible for navigation and training on board there is only one best song that money tours hundreds of miles a day but the navy doesn't have enough vessels and personnel to prevent all piracy attacks. more training. more platform. minutes. for the vessels keeping the business off. very difficult as in this pensive another challenge west african countries have different policies to protect their waters in movies of the. countries in the gulf or the need for them to effectively money totally don't because even though this. is the it never was fine.
and they do why this navy vessel is monitoring one part of the gulf of guinea an attack is reported on the same day a few 100 miles down self an oil tanker similar to this one passing by us has been targeted the nigerian navy is not there maritime security should start here in the niger delta before an attack happens from locals tell us they want to for it to deploy more security to stop lawlessness in the creek. and to ready to piracy or to gather. more into this max williams is the c.e.o. at africa risk compliance in my time security company focusing on west africa welcome to the show now how serious is via time piracy in the gulf of guinea compared to other parts of the well. compared to other boats the world delay serious say the most affected by us. of indian ocean know somalia
but look hard a lot of attention a few years ago compared to us up to now has really dropped down on southeast asia as against them a letter and since west africa has really hit the headlines most recently with the attacks but it's been an ongoing problem for a long time this year alone we seen 2 major attacks on vessels in the region where the 125 c. thought was kidnapped not just since the beginning of 2099 the 66 attacks last year and with 155 get so it's it's a real issue the moment you say attacks are increasing what is driving arise these attacks. the main causes for as are really the problems that are in the niger delta in nigeria. and we're in the world we have 3 main things which are effectively an environment to operate from which is the niger delta as an area that has a very very loose rule of law there's very little opportunity for those living. in
terms of employment and education the never the targets which all the that it may shipping lines of cultural all the time because coming into the on the gas industry or the main ships going past the cargo ships calling it korea pulls an area so if you have these 3 factors and you are in the world you will get piracy and in niger at the moment it's off west africa it's a perfect storm. so what is the main challenge in fighting this and the region. there are several challenges to it is a lack of capability in monks' local navies there is certainly the will to him to combat a problem has certainly improved over the last few years as it's become a bigger problem but there is still a lot of capability most local navies that are have the funding. say western navies are european navies have. those are the main but that is territorial waters and so instructional navies such as from europe or from the us are unable to go into the
area themselves and so the problem like they could off somalia. totally nigeria is dealing with other conflicts obviously the one that gets a lot of attention in europe is the conflict with the islamic insurgency in the north of the koran and other similar groups there's also conflicts in the middle so that's where the focus and it has taken are in nigeria ok i'll pick up from you say and no call authorities i don't strong enough to handle this so then how can the western african countries come together close together we should be strong got to handle it right. yes that is true and has certainly been improvements not have got as information sharing going happening between all the countries in the region with a census of unknown date sr this and as joint exercises being undertaken by regional navies as well with the support of the likes of the us european ace that
has improved things and has helped with the picture and since however ultimately it comes down to nigeria and how they're going to solve the problem in the niger delta it's a long time issue and in the meantime it's really up to local navies and also the shipping industry to improve security in their own produce never waltzes and unbolt the ships for the sea for us ok max williams c.e.o. at africa risk compliance thank you thank you. now in uganda thousands of people have been killed in. regions from east uganda. to west uganda in the mountainous region the idea. of washed away. villages. to move to the slopes so. they will be safe from their risk of sliding much. more i'm joined by.
uganda the latest is that the situation is. very fragile the government aid agencies are reporting that the rainy and it's very hard to reach assistance especially to the people who are still trapped on top of the mountain there what is still going on and formulas do not top hope yes there's been food. items that have been given to some of these people but some of the people. did fight so it's still very tricky for them. that the rains are stopping any time so. it's rainy season every year what's unusual about. what could be unusual name can be related to their with their minds what do with a month sees the rain is way much more than what. been predicted now which.
many people are taking advantage of the dry season to houses and runs along the slopes least expected to hit this day when there were. victims people displaced people or. even many bodies that are still trying to be chopped that they. did rain. until the end of december go into general. people should really. need you know want to do that because they don't want to leave the house is going to be handled. i think that's a lot of mixed reaction when it comes to previously help in this. part of the country where people have been asked to leave. stayed behind because they know the slopes are really fun grow their crops and then help formulate but this time i think
a disappointing time it's the question of survival anyone who would want to stay on the slopes might go about. nice information. thank you. block a natural beauty. saying this woman. is the new 2019 she was crowned on sunday nights in the u.s. doing a lavish ceremony so that really says she wants to inspire gayle's with a new title and the most important thing girls need to lead is leadership. message me to be able to be here today and as a miss universe with my hair looking the way that it does in my skin looking the way that it does is something truly magical and i hope that it touches every child who grew up the way that i grew up and was told that you know they were not beautiful any given extends beauty because it's not just about beauty it's about
