DAR ES SALAAM, Jan. 5 (Xinhua) -- Tanzanian game rangers saved 50 pastoralists from death after they spent seven days without food and water in the thick forests of the Selous Game Reserve, Africa's largest faunal reserve, where they lost with their livestock, officials said on Thursday.

Martin Loibooki, Acting Director General for Tanzania Wildlife Authority (TAWA), said the group consisting of children aged 7 to 15, with 1,780 cows and over 200 goats and sheep started their journey last week in Rufiji District, Coast Region, en-route to Malinyi district in search of grazing pastures.

"A phone call that one of them made to a colleague who is in Kigoma saved their lives after information about their missing spread faster and reached security officials who started searching for them for days," said Loibooki.

He said the pastoralists were rescued on Wednesday by game rangers at Kingupira which is one among the eight zones in the Game reserve after three days of unsuccessful search using helicopters and vehicles which were deployed by the government.

After being rescued, they narrated the ordeal and pains they had undergone in the thick forests without water and food for a week only to be rescued by a phone call that they made to a colleague who is in Kigoma.

"As days went by, my colleagues started collapsing one by one because of hunger and lack of water, it reached a point where we started drinking our own urine and killed some of our animals and drunk blood and sucked their wastes to save our lives," said Lisesi Cherahani Bela, one of the pastoralists.

He said they had planned to travel for two weeks or so from Rufiji to Malinyi but there came a man by the name Nzigua who told them that he knew the shortest way where they could have travelled for five days on condition that they had to give some money.

The man took them from Rufiji last week Wednesday and directed them for about 4 days and dumped them in the midst of the Selous Game Reserve and disappeared.

According to Cherahani, the pastoralists had given the man Tshs six million (about 3,000 U.S. dollars) in advance on condition that he was to be paid more on arrival in Morogoro.

"We never knew before that we were in a protected area, but after walking for some kilometers we realized that we are in a long place, our main issue now was water, but the problem is that we never knew where we are or where we are heading to," he said.

Gaudence Milanzi, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, visited the site on Wednesday where the pastoralists were and ordered that they be taken to a safe place.

Selous Game Reserve officers are now looking for the missing livestock.

US president Donald Trump hailed a "most special relationship" with Britain and threw his support behind Brexit on Friday leBron 11 all star pas cher , as he hosted British Prime Minister Theresa May for his debut on the diplomatic stage.

At a tense moment in trans-Atlantic relations, Trump tried to recast the "deep bond" as a meeting of ideological minds: two countries embracing populist policies and taking an uncompromising view of the national interest.

Trump pointed to Britain's exit from the European Union as a "wonderful thing" and said: "When it irons out, you're going to have your own identity leBron 10 ironman 3 pas cher , and you are going to have the people that you want in your country."

"You're going to be able to make free trade deals without having somebody watching you and what you are doing," he added.

May brushed aside deep-seated differences on issues from torture to Russia, to pursue a diplomatic charm offensive aimed at securing commitments on trade and mutual defense.

May conveyed an invitation from Queen Elizabeth II for Trump to come to Britain for a state visit later this year.

The pair even briefly held hands as they walked down the West Wing colonnade.

Trump greeted May himself upon her arrival at the White House and then they went to the Oval Office leBron 10 canary pas cher , posing and shaking hands in front of a bust of Winston Churchill.

Behind closed doors, May was expected to give Trump an engraved quaich - a ceremonial cup exchanged by Scottish highland chiefs - in a nod to Trump's Scottish ancestry. His mother was born on the island of Lewis.

For First Lady Melania Trump, May was to gift a hamper of apple juice leBron 13 pas cher , damson plum jam, marmalade, Bakewell tarts and cranberry and white chocolate shortbread cookies.

But May also came with a diplomatic shopping list. Trans-Atlantic relations have been rocked by Trump's election and his willingness to rethink NATO leBron 12 pas cher , the UN and other foundation blocks of the liberal world order.

With Trump largely silent on these issues during a joint press conference, May conveyed what had been said in private. "We've reaffirmed our unshakeable commitment to this alliance," she said. "Mr President leBron 11 pas cher , I think you confirmed that you were 100 percent behind NATO."

Much of Britain's military power, including its nuclear deterrent, depends on US equipment and systems.

In private leBron 10 pas cher , European diplomats worry about the influence of top Trump adviser Steve Bannon, who has made common cause with right-wing nationalists and populists in France, Britain and beyond.

Many in European capitals are conscious of the continent's previous embraces of nationalism - the Balkan wars and the horrors of World War II leBron 12 elite pas cher , which left millions dead.


Trump's break with decades of US support for multilateral trade deals and his preference for bilateral accords did offer May one opening as she seeks to navigate Britain's complex exit from the European Union.

Faced with exit from the European single market, the British government is scrambling to secure bilateral deals around the world.

Trump nevertheless offered no firm commitment to negotiate
