Allied forces capture another Somali town

Former Zambia tourism minister Sylvia Masebo will next week appear in court on suspicion of corruption.
The country’s anti-graft body said an investigation revealed that the cancellation of some hunting licenses and termination of jobs for officials in a wildlife department were not backed by procedure.
Ms Masebo,who was tourism and arts minister before her dismissal by late President Sata, was facing two counts.
She called the charges politically-motivated.
“I know that because President Lungu knows that Patriotic Front is losing ground,the only thing he can use now is the state machinery to silence others,” Ms Masebo told journalists Thursday after her questioning.
“He will not silence me because my spirit is very high.”
Zambia’s tourism is dogged by corruption and poor management.
Ms Masebo currently backs an opposition leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema of the United Party for National Development putting herself at loggerheads with her governing party.
