9:03 pm
and the former president north, who can never by of who, despite having handed over the presidency back in 2019 continues to wield significant power in the country and must seem of was one of his guys. now it seems that tough talk i have may have the upper hand having dismissed my theme of arrested my females and dismissed other figures from their rows including the former president as a buyer, who had the roll. it's head of the chairman of the security council. now it seems that the curve has the upper hand, and he's doing that. it appears due to his agreement, clearly thrust out with vladimir putin who had the security block that has been able so quickly to deploy to kazakhstan. so having russian backing behind him appears to be a signal to all those in the political elite and cause extent. that's okay if he's now the manager really in charge in control of all the leave of power in,
9:04 pm
in the country. let's bring in matthew brother. he is non resident senior fellow at atlanta counsels eurasia center. he joins us by calling from stumble. i think of your time, mr. brian. what do you make of the detention of the national security chief? what do you think that i was trying to do in terms of distancing himself from the former president? well, i think i took, i have, has really thrown down the gauntlet in arresting. curry must seem of a took, i have knows that must seem of was not simply the head of our classic st on security services. he's not simply an associate of nozer by of curry must seem of was the key transmission belt between nasir buyer who, let's face. it retains all the or retained all the real power and cost on an truck . i have to kind of was largely a figurehead president who was nominated by nasir bye of because not by, of considered, took i of loyal and a, a safe pair of hands in somebody who was
9:05 pm
a career diplomat. yes, he had served his prime minister, but he never, he never indicated political ambitions. so when i took, i have, i think panicked a few days ago, removed nazzo by of a, by the way, illegally according to context on the law. from being the chair of the national security council, he declared political warranty, nasir by, of, and massey, mom as the one who was put in place by nozer, by a to oversee, took i of apparently had to be removed from psychiatrist perspective and accused really not credibly of committing treason. do you think that those nerves to distance himself from our, from the president nozzle by have well, have, ah, they did there the desired outcome, will it? will it appease, protest is do thing and make and feel as if instead of taking out the finance out of i have remnants, if you like i don't think so took i have his answer by a remnant he was never elected to any office. he was appointed by hussar via to be
9:06 pm
president. so the street protests and that discord that organic, that sincere the discord, any anger with because extended government will continue. what sockeye of his now done is back himself into a corner. because he again, he's part of the nozzle by him system, but he has just accused of treason the most important actor in that nasir, by a system that's otherwise still intact. in other words, tokai has declared political war on those are by of but he has to use nasir buyers, political and governmental system to wage that war. he's in a corner, and this is why he reached out to russia to, to try to save his on political and physical skin. speaking all reaching out to rush or attempt to russian president vladimir putin. how do you think that the u. s . is going to be viewing these developments. yes. so a, as you heard from secretary blinking and, you know, the u. s. looks, of course, really negatively from a geo strategic perspective on, ah,
9:07 pm
russia now having troops on the ground and cows, it's down in that, that says to the united states that whereas previously kazakstan was following a policy by the way that was really operated an engineer by curry must see more of equal distance between washington, beijing and moscow. now, alma ostena, a nurse latan, whatever we call the capital catholics on, now has thrown in its lot with moscow. of course, washington doesn't like that and is uncomfortable. that's why secretary blake inside, you know, once you invite russian troops into your territory or once they come into your territory, it takes them sometimes a long time to leave. that all said, i think washington has been careful not to chew size in this titanic fight to the death between took i of another by of these are 2 sets of leaders who are running in a, a political system that is not fully democratic to say the least and one in which there is tremendous discontent at the elite having failed to deliver for the
9:08 pm
population over the course of these last 30 years. and that situation, washington is being neutral, other than opposing moscow's involvement. or i always really good speak to matthew advisor, that non resident senior fellow at the atlanta council's year, aisha said at least at 56 people have reportedly been killed in an air strike in india, v as northern to dry region. according to aid work, as the strike had a camp for the internally displaced people and the town of de deb, it's now the era trained border and the attack comes as if the government announced it was releasing a number of high profile political prisoners, including members of the 2, ryan rebel forces, officials in the capital of the south of all say it's time to promote national dialogue. after more than a year of conflict in the north take like every michael is a writer for take off dot com which documents war crimes and tick right. he says the prisons renee says nothing more than a pianist don't. why are we offset some numbers in the international community? went into party mode, saying that this is in the right direction and that the price that they have been,

9:16 pm
parks are all closed because starting this weekend which is saturday and sunday in india, there is a weekend for you, in the national capitalists, what use is that unless people have an absolutely important reason to step out like going to the hospital or traveling, they have to stay at home. of course, essential services like hospitals and food deliveries will continue, is now delhi already has the maximum number of restrictions in the country. a few weeks ago the government imposed in nice caf you and also closed on school cinema halls. and jims, the city also slash restaurant capacity because of the rising rate of over $900.00 infections. other states have also set up tubs, so in sudden engender seat of thumb allowed will have locked down on sundays. and the fate of good not to go, which is also in sudden indo we'll have a weekend talking like today for the next 2 weekends. the state of marashi has the
9:17 pm
highest number of over 900 cases. many of these are coming from in just financial hub, which is mon, by what's really wanting authorities is in many of these cases are coming from the cities poorest. the city is home to a shows largest lum, which is seeing its highest single. there's 5 ship beginning off the plan damage for now, the government that has rules out a complete loss processor being held, and the french capital against the government moved to tighten restrictions against unvaccinated people. there is anger over proposal to change the health ass into a vaccine pass. it would allow only those who have the job to enter public places and replace the current requirement of a negative test. the bill is up for debate empowerment and see if it's proved. it's expected to go into effect next saturday, side as in the u. k. say a 4th covered jab is not necessary. several countries are offering the extra shot to people with weak immune systems. for brandon has more from london. what the
9:18 pm
scientists here in the u. k. have been examining is how best to maintain the level of protection and immunity and the level of antibodies within the population here in the u. k. and what they found from looking at specifically the over 65 year old age group is that actually the booster shots are working pretty well at maintaining protection. so the statistics from the u. k. h s a the health security agency said the 3 months after the booster shot protection against hospitalization remain up a 90 percent, which is pretty good for people, a 65 plus. now that doesn't mean that you're not going to get to run a virus protection against mild symptomatic infection. dropped to around 30 percent around 3 months after you have the boost shot. so you can see you, it's still possible that you can get an infection with covert even if you've had the booster shot. but the likelihood of it being a severe infection is going to put you in hospital. and by put strain on the national health service here in the u. k, it's very small indeed,
9:19 pm
10 percent or even less. now what that has been extrapolated by another acronym, the j. c, v i, the joint committee on vaccines and immunization, a government advisory body, is to say that rather than put effort into a 4th boost shot, which has been mentioned by some politicians as rolling program of continuous boosters, perhaps year on year. it's probably best and more effective to concentrate on getting those people who perhaps have no shots or just one or just 2 shots so far. getting them vaccinations because the advisory from the metrics is that that would have more effect than pursuing a program of continuous rolling boosters for those who are already of the mind to get the south african president, serial from opposed to the governing african national congress party needs to be renewed and rebuilt, he was addressing a celebration of the a c 110 of us. 3. several issues continue to tarnish the party's image,
9:20 pm
including allegations of corruption. earlier this week and inquiry found that state decisions made under former president jacob's una, influenced by private interest. not only was states kept a systematic attempt at siphoning off public resources and funds. it also destroyed the capability of the state and led to the departure of paperwork people from public institutions. as they resist that state, capture thumb were fired, some were forced to resign. let's take a closer look at the history of the a and c party, which was founded in 1912 and boom. fontaine is the south african native national congress. its primary objective was to oppose white minority rule and end the apartheid system. decades 8 and nelson mandela brought the policy to power in 1994
9:21 pm
when he was elected president. in the country's 1st democratic election, the agency has been reelected since then. that support for the party is declined in recent years because of allegations of corruption and deep divisions among its leaders. woodspring and william good mer day. he is associate professor at the school of governance at the university of whitfield to sons. he joins us now by skype from cape town. thank you very much for joining us on the news. ella. what's your take on how the agency has gotten to the point that it is to day dealing with corruption and, and with declining support? good evening and a good evening um to your viewers. yes. you know the, i didn't see us because oldest liberation movement really is in a crisis. i think the golden. yes. now we're looking back. the golden. the? yes. the answer really was between 949099 when now. so my dad was the president, i mean there are say has it been down here has been down of the couple of reasons. i think the most important one is that the agencies become really systemically
9:22 pm
corrupt. i mean, it was inquired in the last 3 years route, which is the pause came out on this week and a gets a inquiry, recommend our recommendations. and co cruisers were very damaging, saying that under the jacob zoom a presidency. who was president re foster? i'm a poster on the states was yours for correct purposes. and i'm so really, this is astonishing. back slides from the days of nelson mandela. the 2nd thing was to do when terribly wrong crazy is that this state is child desire. we can state has lost the capacity because the answer have been about improving its own colleges . because the cartridge, the answer africa is stent of competent people. so people based on loyalty and they are hollowed out of state and has made it really, really difficult for the govern government to govern effectively. and maybe, you know, more recently covert 19 crisis is also brought up as big as finance. so crisis in
9:23 pm
a generation. so with no stay capacity to deal with it for the agency and total this, does this ray were state of corruption, not only of the instant visit over or so, so africa broadly talk through the internal divisions facing the agency right now. and how do you think that are impacting that their trajectory of the party not a big is you're not the biggest issue right now is that he a and see last year, november for the 1st time in los angeles. and so there was a local governments election, so the 1st time, soon as you can peer into power, 1994. now president emsella, i'm a poser, is under severe presser by agency parties, leadership because under his leadership, the answer is now last me and elections. we are having our next national elections in 2 years time and if everything stays the same, the answer is very likely to lose
9:24 pm
a lesson and be out of power in opposition. so that an issue, it's a real because it is a real battle. some nc members are calling for several i'm opposed to resign as agency leader. now this year, the end of december of 2022 to is a half an elective conference with i'm a pause. i will have to be re elected to stay on. so there's a lot of opposition against him from within the party, particularly from people who are under investigation of corruption and also from the former african president of jacob's 2 months before ill, pre, pre 1994. the agency spent years as an exiled opposition movement. how did the party then i compared to the party that we see today. i mean, if you look back before 940 a similar price and move a very effective one. but then there was only one priority, one policy one because that was to get the policy government out. now, you know,
9:25 pm
being in government is much more complex, much more complicated. now has to put together policies. now days they have strong, over even under montela presidency to have coherent policies because the i n c. and the movement before he came to power, it was a really broad front hot, you know, mark. so they had to capture those rights being conservative leaders and kings. now i think governing party of course, you know, to be effective, a party needs to have a set up yet and policies. now it has been very difficult because the amc has tried to keep itself as a unifying liberation movement instead of becoming a much more effective governing party. like, for example, you know, the governing parties like the people's action party and senior for example. you know, what is the world's most effective for independence parties became
9:26 pm
a governing party. i thank you so much for analysis. breaking it all down for us. the william committee associate professor at the school of governance at the university of wood water. some still head on al jazeera, i never doubted it, and i knew that today would come. 3 white men, a sentence to life in prison for the murder of a black dog in your state of georgia. colors are the important thing for. this is a, this is the quantity is white. europe's tattoo artists here for the future. there's a lot of finger pointing going on. a lot of blaming going on, but i can show you our team has done an unbelievable job. at the head of tennis australia, praises is organization. elite video coming under fire over the novak off of it's. these are miss ah

and it's going to answer a lot of those key questions about how the universe formed and how it evolved to get to the point that we see today. right, how could they not be exciting so, so tell me and, and in obviously correct me if i'm wrong, but i think we know what was happening about 400000000 years ago. but there's like a gap of like 300000000 years or something that we just don't know what happened there. right. that's about the time when star started forming galaxy start forming . but we don't really have a great understanding of what happened between the big bang to kick off the formation of the universe and how we got to this point where we have all these things that we can see around us in visible light. and that's really the key of the james web telescope is that you can look into the infrared, it's looking at thermal wavelengths, and that's something of the hubble space telescope wasn't really designed to do. so we can peer back farther in time to really get a glimpse at what these early stages of the universe looked like before we even had stars and galaxies in the 1st place. okay, so obviously when i said 400000000 years, i'm well wrong. this is way, way, way,
9:40 pm
way further back and explain to me why i was reading as no cameras on board. so right now with the pictures we've been showing a 3 d images, why? i've been no cameras on board. julie, they could just put a little girl pro on there and would all be looking at what's really happening. so they were concerned that the deployment of all the different pieces of the telescope, you know, the unfolding of the sun shield the deploying of the beers, which is what locked into place this morning or i just a few minutes ago. actually, i finally got successful confirmation of that. they didn't want to add any extra complication and so that would add weight. it would add power requirements. and so even that would be really wonderful to see this unfolding and real time. they just didn't want to take any chances with stuff that would be considered a necessary. okay, we said earlier, you know, it was so big it had to be folded up to get to space. but this, i'm a you is saying that it's the size of a tennis court and, and traveling very, very fast. right?
9:41 pm
so in order to fit inside the rocky, like you said before, it has to be all bunched up so that it can actually fit. and there it gets a des space as to unfolds, that tennis courts size. and so that's been the most complicated nail biting thing of this whole process is hoping that every single piece of that deployment happens correctly. and there were over $300.00 separate pieces that had to deploy flawlessly for the entire telescope to work. and luckily we've gotten through a little over half of those successfully so far. so now the telescope to these, to make it to its final home, it will be called the la grunge to point, which is out past the earth and the moon. so that it's not really getting disturbed by the light that's coming out of the moon being reflected off the moon and the earth. so it can actually just peer straight out in the space and see what it's but it's going to see i'm to saw again that there are smart people at you out there in the world doing cold stuff like this. pushing for human knowledge is awesome. hey, thank you very much for your time, tanya harrison. thanks so much to sylvia. now, where environmental activists have blocked rows and highways says they try to stop
