DAKAR---Tens of thousands of people
in Senegal struggling with advanced
cancer and other illnesses are left with
only basic headache medicines to treat
their pain because the country does
not have enough morphine in stock,
according to a report released yester-
Only about 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of
the powerful opioid drug is available
each year in the West African country---
enough for less than 200 people, Human
Rights Watch found. As a result, those
already confronting the pain of death
are now spending their final months
often unable to even sleep or eat because
of their agony.
Fatoumata Seck, a 33-year-old woman
from Mali battling advanced cervical
cancer, described her pain without mor-
phine as "infernal." She told Human
Rights Watch it was "by far the worst
pain" she'd ever felt in her life, even after
having delivered six babies.
As in many countries in West Africa,
Senegalese families struggle to pay not
only the costs of medical care but also
for travel expenses to hospitals and clinics
in the capital. Many patients are diag-
nosed in the advanced stages of cancer
because early screening is not available
or out of reach financially.
Senegal's National Pharmacy says it
has added oral morphine tablets to its
2012 essential medicines list and plans
to begin importing more of it later this
Government regulations, though, still
require patients to get the drug from
only a limited number of regional and
national hospitals. Restrictions on pre-
scriptions also mean families must refill
And even when family members do
make the journey, sometimes they find
the drug is not in stock. Only a handful
of places have oral morphine at all, and
the report found the "complication
authorization and important process cre-
ates many opportunities for delays." (AP)
South Korea s largest tobacco com-
pany has promised to change an
advertising campaign after accusa-
tions of racism.
Posters promoting a new line of cig-
arettes featured pictures of monkeys
dressed as news reporters, declaring
"Africa is coming!"
The cigarettes are part of a new This
Africa line. The company, KT&G, says
they contain African tobacco roasted
and dried in a traditional fashion.
The cigarette packets contain images
of monkeys roasting tobacco.
"We are deeply offended by KT&G's
shameless and insulting use of this
mocking imagery," said the African
Tobacco Control Alliance in a state-
ment calling for the withdrawal of the
ad campaign, saying it was "at a min-
imum culturally insensitive." A KT&G
company spokeswoman told news
agency AFP it would pull the ads this
South Africa has apologised for controversial
remarks President Jacob Zuma made on Monday
Zuma was widely quoted in the media as saying
that "this is Johannesburg. It's not some national
road in Malawi".
He made the comment as he tried to convince
people to accept plans to impose tolls on highways
On Wednesday, Malawi summoned South Africa's
top diplomat in Lilongwe to protest about the remark.
South African high commissioner Cassandra
Mbuyane-Mokone explained to Malawi Foreign Affairs
Minister Ephraim Mganda Chiume that Zuma had
been quoted out of context, said Malawian foreign
ministry spokeswoman Quent Kalichero.
"As far as we are concerned the issue is resolved.
It's now water under the bridge. Malawi and South
Africa enjoy good relations," Ms Kalichero told the
Malawi is one of Africa's poorest states, with many
of its nationals working in South Africa, the regional
Speaking at a meeting organised by the governing
African National Congress (ANC) on Monday, Mr
Zuma reportedly said: "We can't think like Africans
in Africa, generally. This is Johannesburg. It's not
some national road in Malawi."
South Africa's public broadcaster, SABC, reports
that Zuma's spokesman Mac Maharaj has apologised
to those who felt offended by the comments.
International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-
Mashabane said South Africa will never look down
on another African country, SABC quotes her as say-
While South Africa has many toll roads, the gov-
ernment is facing strong public opposition to its plan
to introduce, for the first time, electronic tolling for
roads between Johannesburg and the capital Preto-
ria.Many commuters, backed by businessmen and
unionists, say it will increase travelling costs exor-
bitantly, something they cannot afford.
The government upgraded existing motorways in
and around Johannesburg for the 2010 football World
It says the work was not free, and it now wants
the electronic tolling system to retrospectively finance
