The confirmed death toll from the ferry disaster off South Korea rose Wednesday to 150 as divers located more bodies in the sunken vessel, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported.

 That number of deaths has sharply increased after divers reached the ship’s cafeteria where many passengers were thought to be when the ship began to sink.Divers were able to begin recovering bodies from inside the 6,325-ton vessel that sank off the coast of South Korea last week with 475 people aboard.

Divers were able to begin recovering bodies from inside the 6,325-ton vessel that sank off the coast of South Korea last week with 475 people aboard.

The first distress call made from the ferry as it began to sink last week came from a boy, not the crew, who used his cell phone to contact emergency services, the coast guard said Tuesday.Data shows that the ship made a J-shaped turn before listing heavily and ultimately sinking last week.

 “Help us. The boat is sinking,” he said. His fate unknown.

South Korean President Park Geun-hye on Monday lashed out at the captain and crew. South Korean President Park Geun-hye on Monday lashed out at the captain and crew. "What the captain and part of the crew did is unfathomable from the viewpoint of common sense. Unforgivable, murderous behavior," said Park.

 “What the captain and part of the crew did is unfathomable from the viewpoint of common sense. Unforgivable, murderous behavior,” said Park.


Park went on, saying of the sinking, “Legally and ethically, this is an unimaginable act.” She accused the captain of contributing to the death toll when he “told the passengers to stay put while they themselves became the first to escape.”

Although Park attempted to place the blame primarily on the captain and crew, public criticism of the government’s handling of the disaster has been steadily rising. 

Among many missteps, family members of the missing are most outraged at the government initially reporting that 368 passengers were saved, when in reality only 174 were rescued.

 The reason for the sinking of the ferry still remains a mystery, but investigators are looking into the different possibilities.
 The captain was not on the bridge when the ferry started sinking, but instead the third officer was at the helm, who may have ordered a turn that caused the ship to tilt.

 The captain of the ferry was arrested on suspicion of negligence and abandoning people. Three other crew members were also arrested.

The vice principal of Danwon high school, which had many students aboard the ferry, was found dead on Friday.


Reports said Kang Min-gyu, 52, who had been rescued from the ferry accident, died in an apparent suicide near a gymnasium on Jindo, an island near the accident site. 

A colleague of Kang’s told The Guardian that the vice principal was overcome with guilt. 

“As the teacher responsible for the students’ safety, he was suffering with serious feelings of guilt,” the Korea Herald quoted the teacher as saying. 

“The families of the victims vented their anger towards him — he was brokenhearted.”

Following this attempts on her life, the gospel singer has had to relocate to Dar es Salaam where it’s purported to be safer than Dodoma, her previous residence.

According to Alex Msama, Rose Muhando’s handler, “Those people are not good. For a while now, they have been planing to harm Rose. A good example is on April 3 and 4 this year, they set a trap to kidnap Rose from her hotel in Dar es Salaam but they were thwarted.”

Muhando, one of the most accomplished gospel worshipers in East Africa, narrowly escaped a botched kidnap, on April 6tht in Ushirika wa Magomeni at the KKT Church where she was performing.

Credible sources point out that it might be a consequence of a deal gone bad between the singer and a former business partner.

Boy survives 5 hour trip in wheel well of flight
A 16-year-old boy stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from California to Hawaii, surviving the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite freezing temperatures at 11,500 meters and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said.

FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.

"Kid's lucky to be alive," Simon said.

Simon said security footage from the San Jose airport verified that the boy hopped a fence to get to Hawaiian Airlines Flight 45 on Sunday morning.

The teen had run away from his family after an argument, Simon said.

When the flight landed in Maui, the boy hopped down from the wheel well and started wandering around the airport grounds, he said.

"He was unconscious for the lion's share of the flight," Simon said. The flight lasted about 5 hours.

Hawaiian Airlines spokeswoman Alison Croyle said airline personnel noticed the boy on the ramp after the flight arrived and immediately notified airport security.

"Our primary concern now is for the well-being of the boy, who is exceptionally lucky to have survived," Croyle said.

Simon said the boy was medically screened and found to be unharmed.

"Doesn't even remember the flight," Simon said. "It's amazing he survived that."

“Usalama ni jambo muhimu sana na kwa maana hiyo, nawaombeni msiige kabisa mfano wa Arusha, sote tunajua kimetokea nini kule kwa sababu ya fujo za kisiasa ambazo zinachochewa na viongozi na hasa Mbunge wa Arusha mjini, Bwana Lema (Godbless),” 

“Mbunge anayo nafasi kubwa kujenga hoja zake ndani ya Bunge na ndani ya mikutano ya halmashauri. Lakini kwa Mbunge kuwachochea wananchi na kuwachukua na kuwatembeza barabarani ambako wanakumbana na virugu vya polisi siyo uongozi wa busara hata kidogo.”
