  1. so far nothing was mentioned about Kenya and regional areas with casualties numbering 115 , some lodges in Masai Mara damaged and guests moved to Masai manyattas etc … everybody talks about Covid 19 and resuming of operations if airlines are providing access … meanwhile there are floods and locusts problem, why locusts and other insects are eaten in Asia and not in many places in Africa and a country like Madagascar ?
