Head Lice Folo (03/30/1998)

NATIVE VILLAGE
Kenya, Africa. <br/> <br/>Various shots of some women from the Kikuyu tribe at work, grinding corn in a stone bowl with large wooden sticks. One of the women has a baby strapped to her back; other women are seen walking about the village and preparing food near a fire. <br/> <br/>Some women sit on a low bench while one of them has her head shaved with a razor blade by another female; commentator says "The smart hair do for a girl in these parts is the Yul Brynner". These women wear hundreds of hoop earrings through their stretched earlobes; one of them checks her appearance in a small mirror. <br/> <br/>Various shots of coffee beans being harvested; the women pick them from bushes then carry boxes of beans on their heads to be loaded on a truck. The beans are dried in the sun; a European man is seen giving advice to an African man, then tasting a bean. <br/> <br/>Several shots of Kikuyu tribesmen herding cattle (goats and cows); one of the men walks along with an umbrella to shield him from the sun. The cows are moved along a narrow pen to be dipped as a European man makes notes. Nice M/S of a group of cows with huge horns in a field. <br/> <br/>Various shots of young African boys and girls playing in a river while the older tribesmen and women watch. All wear several necklaces round their necks and the women have many hoops in their ears; one woman seems to have a curved ivory tusk through her chin. <br/> <br/>The rather patronising commentary tells of Europeans helping the Africans to stand on their own feet. <br/> <br/>Cuts exist - see separate record.

Female protester being carried by police, shouting: (English) "India, please help us!" and then being put in back of truck along with others STORYLINE: The Olympic torch touched down in the Indian capital on Thursday amidst loud protests by Tibetan exiles on a highway in New Delhi. The official plane carrying the Olympic flame landed at New Delhi's military airport a little after midnight local time (0630 GMT). The flame was received by the Indian Olympic Association President Suresh Kalmadi amid cheering by Chinese cheerleaders. Meanwhile, about two dozen Tibetan exiles, shouting anti-Chinese slogans, protested the flame's arrival along a busy highway in the city. They were forcibly pushed by police into vans, but it was not known whether they were arrested or detained. Thousands of police patrolled central New Delhi as the city braced for the relay of the Olympic torch - a potential minefield in India, the heart of the world's Tibetan exile community. After decades of frosty relations, New Delhi is trying to forge closer ties with far more powerful China, and Indian officials are desperate to avoid the chaos that has plagued the torch runs in London, Paris and other Western cities. That seems unlikely with many in India's 100,000-strong Tibetan exile community, the world's largest, threatening more of the protests that they've staged nearly every day here since demonstrations first broke out in Tibet in March. In recent weeks, Tibetan exiles here have stormed the Chinese Embassy, which is now surrounded by barricades and barbed wire, gone on hunger strikes and shaved their heads to protest China's crackdown on protests in Tibet. On Wednesday, about 100 Tibetan exiles again tried to breach the security cordon around the Chinese Embassy. Police dragged away about 50 of them, loading them into police vans, but not before they manage to spray paint "No Olympics in China" on a street near the embassy. The exiles say that Thursday's torch run through the city is a perfect opportunity to make their point, despite the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader, saying he supports China hosting this summer's Olympic games. Protests are expected to begin early on Thursday, hours before the run scheduled 1600 (1030 GMT) start. Thousands of Tibetans are reportedly heading to New Delhi to protest and will take part in their own torch run to highlight the Tibetan struggle against Chinese rule. Exiles have also called on Indian athletes to boycott the torch relay and asked local residents to wear "Free Tibet" T-shirts and fly Tibetan flags. Activists disrupted torch relays in Paris, London and San Francisco. However, recent stops in Argentina, Tanzania, Oman and Pakistan have been trouble-free.

Wide of camp with people sitting on the ground STORYLINE: Hundreds of people have continued to flee from a Nairobi shantytown, where more than 30 people have been killed in a police crackdown on a gang accused of a wave of beheadings. While many in Mathare acknowledge the shadowy Mungiki sect does operate from the slum's maze of dusty streets, they also accused police of indiscriminate violence as they round up residents and demolish homes in search of weapons. Mungiki was inspired by the 1950s Mau Mau uprising against British rule, but has become a street gang linked to murder, political violence and extortion. Hundreds of paramilitary police have been tearing through Mathare since Monday, rounding up residents, beating them with truncheons and knocking down homes constructed of wood and iron sheeting. Police deny using excessive force, saying they are doing what is necessary to wipe out a fearsome sect accused in the deaths of at least 20 people in the past three months, including 12 found mutilated or beheaded since May. The group also is accused of killing two police officers on Monday - shootings that sparked this week's crackdown. According to Mutuma Ruteere, Dean of the Kenya Human Rights Institute, the movement started in 1987 after some of their leaders claimed that they had received a special calling. "They say that the call that they got from these visions is to go and return the people to the African religious traditions. So you have a Mungiki that is quite critical of Christianity as it is in the country, that views Christianity as having led people astray." Sect members pray facing Mount Kenya, which the Kikuyu believe to be the home of their supreme deity. The group also encourages female genital mutilation and using tobacco snuff. The Mungiki movement was outlawed in 2002 after its members began using violence. However Ruteere believes that there is more to the Mungiki than spectacular acts of brutality. "In most of their discussions, in most of their writings, in most of their songs, in most of their discussions they talk about the question of land. So that Mungiki politics cannot be divorced at the same time from the politics of land, and the historical injustices," he said. Mungiki claims to have thousands of adherents, all drawn from the Kikuyu, Kenya's largest tribe. Members of the group, whose name means "multitude" in the Kikuyu language, traditionally wear dreadlocks, inspired by the Mau Mau who wore them as a symbol of anti-colonialism and their determination not to conform to Western norms. In recent years, however, many Mungiki have shaved their heads, believing dreadlocks are too conspicuous. The recent bloodshed has raised fears that Mungiki members are out to disrupt elections in December, when President Mwai Kibaki will seek a second term. Leaflets allegedly circulated by the group call on Kenyan youth to join and prepare for an uprising against the government. The President of Kenya, Mwai Kibaki, issued a stern warning to the banned sect during Kenya's independence day festivities on June 1: "Those who are bent on criminal activities must be dealt with firmly by our security agencies," Kibaki said. Clashes have broken out every election year since 1992, and this year has been no different. In the past, human rights groups and critics of the government have accused politicians of instigating the violence to force opposition supporters to flee constituencies where the then-ruling Kenya African Union National party faced strong challenges.
