XINHUA NEWS SERVICE REPORTS FROM THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

 

THIRTY NINE YEARS' AGO -
Coastweek September 01 - 08, 1979:

Coastweek -- President Daniel Arap Moi was on Friday afternoon to officially open the Mombasa National Show.  Billed as the ‘Biggest and Best Ever,’ it was expected to draw over 100,000 visitors.  Earlier in the week, the President was given a rousing welcome by Coast residents when amidst great fanfare, he officially opened the new Mombasa International Airport.

Lovely Miss Salma Basheikh was crowned Miss Mombasa Show while runners up were the equally beautiful Farida Mohamed and Dorothy Malwala.

The Kenya Medical Association and the Boots Company (K) Ltd. held a symposium attended by doctors from all over Kenya to evaluate Entamizole, a ‘wonder drug’ which cured intestinal and hepatic amoebiasis.  The new drug evidently was a shorter and faster acting treatment with a higher cure rate than the two most commonly prescribed drugs then on the market.

Well-Known angler Alfredo Santagati was running water sports and sea safaris from the 406-bed Nyali Beach Hotel.

British Council organised a crash course on language development for 300 primary school  teachers at Mombasa Primary School

NAAZ Cinema was commencing its screening of “Pretty Baby,” starring 12-year old Brooke Shields in a controversial role which depicted an image of an adult world seen through the eyes of a child. KENYA Cinema was showing “Thank God It’s Friday,” with the playful catchline, “After 5,000 years of civilization - e all need a break.”  REGAL Cinema, meanwhile, bowed to popular demand and brought back the epic “The Ten Commandments.” CHOX was showing Sanjeev Kumar in “Apne Rang Hazaar,” (“I have a thousand colours”).

Letter writers included A. Frank Tenai of Kwale;  Magbell A.S. Badbess of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Mustafa Said Khalil, Razia Mohamedali and Bashir Akhtar all of Mombasa; Peter Wafula Muhindi of Nairobi; Zakir Datoo, treasurer of the Nyali Resident’s Association and “Troubled Reader” who took issue with the editor over the propriety of a picture of a famous strip dancer at the Cave Night Club in the German section of the previous week’s issue.  The Editor commented that pictures were a question of degree and that a “‘tasteful’ photograph of a semi-nude woman (or man) [was] always acceptable,” but assured the writer that one would not find “obscene or directly lascivious photographs in Coastweek.”

One of Kenya’s top sprinters for several years, Tariq Mohamed Mughal, who was killed by armed robbers in his Nairobi home was mourned by T.L.

BLAST FROM THE PAST: Prices-Kenya Airways was offering a new one way excursion fare between Nairobi and Mombasa for  KSh 240/=.
