Jacinda Ardern's first term in office as prime minister of New Zealand has been characterised with some challenges including a major terrorist attack, a deadly volcanic eruption and a pandemic.
Ardern is the first prime minister to have dealt with such challenges. She faced all these challenges while nursing a baby as the politician gave birth to her first child in 2018.
Ardern, who assumed office in 2017, is serving as the 40th prime minister of New Zealand and leader of the Labour Party.
In other news, President Andry Rajoelina of Madagascar has said two lawmakers in the country - one member of the Senate and one deputy - have died of COVID-19.
The president, who made the disclosure on Sunday, July 12, said 11 other deputies and 14 senators also tested positive for the deadly disease.
President Rajoelina launched a local herbal concoction he claimed prevents and cures COVID-19.
The presidency had said in a statement: “The Analamanga region (under which the capital is situated) is returning to full lockdown."
In other news, the coronavirus pandemic has pushed people to the edges, disrupted people's plans and has instead reintroduced a new norm whose end is very uncertain.
Nothing can illustrate this statement better than what a Ugandan lady did in a bid to protect herself from disappointments that come with marriages.
With weddings and churches being banned and in some cases being restricted to a specific number of people, Mary Namatovu had to find a way to let the world know she is getting married soon.
The soon-to-be-wed bride took to Facebook to let everybody know that she was engaged and whoever had an objection to their union should come out early enough.
