It has been a very quiet month indeed with little going on except endless numbers of cats being brought in for one reason or another. So very few visitors but we seem to have been incredibly busy with other things. A little cat was brought in – it has a very severe case of mites and is very thin. The cat has been receiving Ivermectin (heartworm dawa) injections and is well on the way to recovery.

United States Coast Guard complete first counter piracy patrol

Kenyan Opposition supporters stage demo outside US embassy | Coastweek

The United States Coast Guard (USCG) has completed their first patrol with Combined Task Force (CTF) 150 since 2015, part of the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF). USCG cutters Wrangell and Aquidneck patrolled the northern Arabian Sea from 9 to 12 February 2018 on surge operation IRON GUARDIAN, exercising maritime security operations in the area. The latest patrols assessed the interoperability between CTF 150, CMF’s counter-terrorism and maritime security task force, and the USCG. CTF 150’s mandate is to promote security and stability at sea by countering terrorist acts and related illegal activities, which terrorists use to fund or conceal their movements. The USCG shares a similar mandate, promoting the legitimate use of the international waters of the Middle East. CTF 150 is currently under Australian command, staffed by a combined Canadian and Australian team and supported by assets from Australia, France, New Zealand, Pakistan, the United Kingdom and the United States. Since December 2017, CTF 150 has seized over 16 tonnes of hashish and 1.5 tonnes of heroin, valued in excess of U.S. $ one billion dollars. PHOTOS - COMBINED MARITIME FORCES

Kenyan Maia Von Lekow is star performer at Zanzibar Festival



  ZANZIBAR Tanzania (Xinhua) -- Kenyan musical artist Maia Von Lekow performs at a standing-room-only concert during the 2018 Sauti Za Busara music festival in Stone Town, Zanzibar, Tanzania. This week the islanders have been performing in a colourful carnival parade as warm-up activities for this popular event. This 14th edition of the Sauti za Busara festival began mid-week with the expectation of promoting cultural tourism in Tanzania’s semi-autonomous Zanzibar archipelago. One prominent African music critic notes: "Maia represents another amazing side to Kenya’s dynamic musical scene. Her voice and style has an affinity with female jazz vocalists of the 1930s and soul and folk music of the 1960s." Maia Von Lekow is the daughter of famous Mombasa born singer and entertainer Sal Davis - who has also been known to play a good game of golf at the Nyali Golf and country club.
