A troop of monkeys is giving Kenyan villagers long days and sleepless nights, destroying crops and causing a food crisis

Juliet Njeri:

Earlier this month, local MP Paul Muite urged the Kenya Wildlife Service to help contain their aggressive behaviour.

But Mr Muite caused laughter when he told parliament that the monkeys had taken to harassing and mocking women in a village.

But this is exactly what the women in the village of Nachu, just south-west of Kikuyu, are complaining about.

They estimate there are close to 300 monkeys invading the farms at dawn. They eat the village's maize, potatoes, beans and other crops.

And because women are primarily responsible for the farms, they have borne the brunt of the problem, as they try to guard their crops.

They say the monkeys are more afraid of young men than women and children, and the bolder ones throw stones and chase the women from their farms.

Nachu's women have tried wearing their husbands' clothes in an attempt to trick the monkeys into thinking they are men - but this has failed, they say.

"When we come to chase the monkeys away, we are dressed in trousers and hats, so that we look like men," resident Lucy Njeri told the BBC News website

"But the monkeys can tell the difference and they don't run away from us and point at our breasts. They just ignore us and continue to steal the crops."

In addition to stealing their crops, the monkeys also make sexually explicit gestures at the women, they claim.

"The monkeys grab their breasts, and gesture at us while pointing at their private parts. We are afraid that they will sexually harass us," said Mrs Njeri.

This is so messed up I can hardly believe it.

Where are the men? Why do the women do the work? You would think the men would just get together and go kill them.

"The town has been warned by the Kenya Wildlife Service not to harm or kill any of the monkeys, as it is a criminal offence."

Africa doesn't make any sense.

In this distress he was received into the house of Mr. Waldron, where he lay concealed for some time. When the place of his retreat was at length discovered, he took refuge in Flanders, whore he died after a mbt trainers few months' residence, in the summer of 1791.Under the hospitable roof of this worthy and amiable man, Whalley resumed the care of Jonson ; but want of books, and, perhaps, of sufficient composure of mind, rendered his attcmpte ineffectual, and the manuscript was finally abandoned to his friend, who, in the year 1792, coach outlet store online commenced the publication of it in numbers. The success apparently fell short of the expectations of the editor, as the work was not continued beyond the second number.Mr. Waldron neither possessed, nor pretended to be possessed of, scholastic learning; but he was laborious, accurate, conversant with the stage, and imbued with a rational love of the ancient drama, which he had studied coach bags outlet with success. He appears to have collated Whalley's copy with the early editions ; and, on attentively retracing his steps, previously to the arrangement of the text for the present publication, I found much to approve in the caution andI Whalley'« text was that of the booksellers' edition, five finger shoes in Svo. This had been in Theobald's band«, and an incidental remark by him, of no moment whatever, here and there appeared in Ule margin.judgment with which he had uniformly proceeded. His friendship for Whalley, however, has led him to form far too high an estimate of that gentleman's qualifications ; and beyond the revision which I have just mentioned, he seems to have contemplated no alteration of the papers left in his hands.Many years had elapsed since the failure, last mentioned, when the republication coach outlet coupon of Joneon w»s proposed to me by Mr. George Nicol, to whom Whalley'e corrected copy had been consigned by Mr. Waldron. I was well aware of the labor and difficulty of the task ; but my objections were overcome by the encouragement of my friend, and I undertook the edition, confident that I was not about to coach purses outlet encumber the public with a superfluous work, for Jonson had now been long out of the bookseller's hands. One motive there yet was, which had some influence on my determination — a desire, though late, to render justice to the moral character of the author, and rescue him from the calumnies of his inveterate persecutors. My mind had been prejudiced at an early period by the commentators on our old dramas, and I verily believed, as they repeatedly assured me, that " tho great mbt shoes clearance object of Jonson's life was the persecution of Shakspeare ; " nor was it until I became acquainted with the dates of his respective performances that I ventured to question the accuracy of the critics, or to entertain a suspicion that they were actuated by unworthy motives, and could only be relieved 5 finger shoes from the charge of wanton malevolence by the plea of incorrigible folly.Previously to the arrangement of the text, it became necessary to collate the old editions. In the execution of this part of the work, the mode adopted in the revision of Maesinger was carefully followed.

The World Championship server and the live game servers are two different things. Settings that work on one do not necessarily reflect on the other. On that same note, I haven't seen any recent patch information about altering stun rates on the live servers, so I do not believe that matter has been fixed yet.

Then maintenance hit, prompting me to introduce my head to my desk at high velocity.

So, that's where we are at the moment. Customer Support is down, so submitting a ticket won't do you any good in that respect. Even if you did submit a ticket on the matter, you'd just get one of the aforementioned replies and your receipt would not be deleted. Since a lot of my GM tools are also down, I can't delete items yet. Since you've already posted your request in the Nation Change Receipt thread, it will be handled as soon as I get access to the proper tool again. I've already had to apologize three times in that thread to everyone who's been kept waiting this long. For the time being, keep calm and carry on. Deleting those receipts is my top priority once the tools come back online.

I haven't personally encountered this sort of issue, nor have I received any large number of reports from users on the matter. Generally speaking, it's more likely a hardware issue on your end than a flaw with the game itself. Perhaps a brush with lag? Unfortunately, I cannot offer any advice on this matter as every user's machine is vastly different and I'm not qualified to offer technical assistance.

I totally respect your willingness to even have this community dialog. But the "guilty until proven innocent" attitude is fairly, well.. "disheartening" ? Especially when the proof of being innocent basically requires an Act from Congress for approval... I mean, is the so community so bad, that the assumption is that 95% of everyone is a cheater or liar? Just remember we're emotional humans behind these account IDs, and some of do have the best interest of the KOL community at heart and not our own egos.

Account restorations are still underway. Now when you say 'nothing', do you mean that there's been no reply to your tickets at all, or that you simply haven't received a restoration yet? If it's the former, I'd appreciate getting a hold of your ticket number so that I can yell at a CSR. If it's the latter, please continue to wait patiently.
