Sri Lanka took the historic step of launching it’s first ever communications satellite in partnership with the Chinese state owned China Greatwall Industry Corporation. R.M.Manivannan – The owner and fast growing millionaire of Sri lanka became the owner of the proposed satellite which will be called “SupremeSAT” resembling the name of his business conglomerate – The Supreme Group. This satellite will be launched in december 2015 from China and will be the DFH-4 model satellite of China. R.M.Manivannan has now become a player in the global satellite industry by going after more satellites with part ownerships to secure the regional satellite business including India, Bangladesh, Myanmar & Afganistan. In addition to launching the satellite, The Supreme Group is also setting up a state of the art satellite ground station in Kandy/Sri Lanka which will also be converted to a “Space Academy”. The total investment commitment for all the said projects exceed USD 300 Million.

Meles Zenawi, the Ethiopian PM at the World Economic Forum annual meeting 2012
Image: World Economic Forum.

Meles Zenawi, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, died this week on Monday at the age of 57 years of an undisclosed illness at a Brussels hospital. This came after months of speculation about the health of the Ethiopian leader after he missed several high profile meetings in the last month. An Ethiopian government official reported a week prior to his death that Meles Zenawi was recovering well from his illness.

Zenawi ruled for more than 20 years after taking leadership from Mengistu Haile Mariam in 1991. His deputy Haile Mariam Desalegne, who is also the foreign minister, was appointed to occupy the Prime Minister’s post in an acting capacity following the news.

Ethiopia’s economy was transformed under Zenawi’s leadership to place it to among the Africa’s fastest growing with the Prime Minister serving as a key ally to the United States in fighting terrorism. During his time as head of state, several social, economic, religious and political developments and systems were established for the first time in Ethiopia. His government has also been accused him of oppression, killings of its critics, and unjust detention and surveillance of the opposition members in Ethiopia by the Human Rights Watch in Africa. He is survived by one widow, Azeb Mesfin.

Witnesses heard gunshots in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Cedar Park, Texas, near Highway 183, on Sunday morning. Police arrested eighteen year-old Soloman Onwukaife at the scene. Four, including the gunman who had facial wounds unrelated to the shooting, are being treated for injuries after the incident. A fifth victim has been released.

Cedar Park Police Captain Mike Harmon said authorities arrived at the parking lot around 4:30 AM local time. There they arrested Onwukaife, who has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The Cedar Park Wal-Mart was closed down briefly on Sunday morning; however, no staff or customers were injured.

Police have released the names of the victims, eighteen-year-old Cody McGrath, nineteen-year-old Shayne Davis, nineteen-year-old Zacharia Gietl and 22-year-old Leland McGlocklin. As-of Monday, Gietl has been released from hospital whilst the others remain in critical, but stable, condition. Police informed media the incident occurred follwing a dispute which began at a nearby party where alcohol was being served. After moving the fight to the parking lot, Onwukaife is alleged to have shot the four victims.

Onwukaife was expected to be released on Monday, after which he would immediately be jailed. Police advised media the investigation is on-going and more charges may still be filed. Specifically, Police are trying to determine if any other participants in the fight were armed.
