    HARARE, ZIMBABWE — On Nov. 14, messages trickled in at first. But it wasn’t long before the trickle became a flood.⠀ ⠀ The president was dead. No, he was fired. No, he resigned. No, he was under house arrest.⠀ ⠀ The truth remained murky for days, thanks in part to tight-lipped officials, but mostly due to the flood of fake news, doctored photographs and forged documents that flooded social media.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #learnmore #fakenews

    When new trends arrive and the latest situations unfold in Uganda, “Uglish” words are quick to fill the lexical need. Some say that Uglish, a Ugandan dialect of English popular among the country’s youth, is a uniquely Ugandan form of expression that rightly challenges English’s colonial legacy, but others argue that the dialect’s effects aren’t all good. https://buff.ly/2zVJknu

    The world came to Nepal’s aid after a series of earthquakes in 2015 killed nearly 9,000 people and flattened or damaged as many as 800,000 homes. But two and a half years later, not even 1 percent of the people who need help have received everything the Nepalese government has promised, despite more than $4 billion in pledged aid. While politicians bicker over who’s in charge and how to use the money, penniless people across much of the country are still living in tents.⠀ ⠀ #Nepal #earthquake #internationalaid #photo #photojournalism #photooftheday #mustread⠀ ⠀ https://buff.ly/2zuJJNx
