Syria yaondolewa kama mwanachama wa OIC

I’m not sure if it’s not to early to try to read text in Swahili but as I prefer total immersion method, it’s time to start. Today a short text from BBC Swahili published on its Internet site on August 16. The translation of the title: “Syria removed as a member of the OIC”. (OIC stands for Organization of Islamic Conference.)

Full text in Swahili
Jumuiya ya muungano wa nchi za Kiislamu (OIC) imesimamisha uanachama wa Syria katika muungano huo.
Baada ya kumalizika kwa mkutano wa viongozi wa Kiislamu uliofanyika mjini Mecca, katibu mkuu wa Muungano huo, Ekmeleddin Ihsa-noglu, alisema muungano huo wa mataifa ya kiislamu hauna nafasi kwa taifa ambalo serikali yake inawaua raia wake.
Hatua hiyo imesababisha kutengwa zaidi kwa Rais Bashar al-Assad baada ya jumuiya ya mataifa ya ki-arabu kuitimua mnamo mwezi Novemba.

My translation into English
Syria removed as a member of OIC
Community of the Union of the Islamic Countries finished a membership of Syria in this organization.
After the meeting of the leader of the Islamic leaders held in the city of Mecca, secretary general of this organization, Ekmeleddin Ihsa-noglu, said that in this organization of Islamic countries there is no place for a country which government kills it own people.
This move causes further isolation of the President Bashar al-Assad after the organization of the Arabic countries condemned him in November.
