Pacéré as the demiurge of orature
A Kaboré
Tydskrif vir letterkunde , 2007,
Abstract: Not all unwritten literatures are oral literatures. They would more appropriately be referred to as “spoken literatures”, in the wider sense of literatures that use different means of communication (mouth, gestures, body movement, instruments). The dumb “speak” with signs. Pio Zirimu proposed the term “orature” to palliate the alleged contradiction in the phrase “oral literature” or “spoken literature”. However, as a result of in-depth studies that revealed that before writing, there was a literature, which was spoken, many literary critics prefer the traditional phrase “oral literature” instead of the suggested term “orature”. The term “orature” has been taken up in performance studies to designate a genre of written literature at the cusp between spoken and written literatures, referring to written fictions that mix different performing genres. This paper aims at defining orature with an illustration from the poetry of Frédéric Titinga Pacéré and, consequently, to present him as the demiurge of this innovative genre in emerging Burkinabè literature. The implications of the genre of orature are manifold. Orature calls for a redefinition of literature as whatever a given society considers as literature. It demands an interpretation of literature based on an understanding of culture.
La lutte contre les glossines dans la zone agropastorale de Yalé (Burkina Faso): résultats d'enquêtes socioéconomiques

Abstract: Tsetse Control in the Yalé Agropastoral Zone (Burkina Faso): Results of Socio-economic Surveys. The study examines the impact of a tsetse campaign (1994-1997) in southern Burkina Faso. In the absence of health - productivity monitoring, data were collected in cross sectional surveys to generate quantitative estimates of relevant productivity traits for cattle. The results indicate the following: 25% increase in herd size; reduction in mortality from 63.1% to 7.1% and increase in live births of 57.6%. Milk yield rose from 0.2 to 2.2 litres/cow/day in the dry season. These results show the impacts trypanosomosis control can have on zebu cattle exposed to a high tsetse challenge. The study underscores the importance of well designed surveys as a cost-effective way of generating estimates of productivity impacts. These estimates can be a useful alternative to subjective assessments in modelling the economic benefits.

Abstract: Groundwater is a main source of water supply for populations in Burkina Faso where there is a serious problem for drinking water access. However, water quality has not been always followed regularly. Recent studies showed that more than 50% of drillings in Yatenga province (north of Burkina Faso) have an arsenic concentration above the recommended WHO requirement. Preliminaries studies conducted in Bam (Center North of Burkina Faso) showed high arsenic level in certain localities. This work presents for the first time data on a large scale evaluation that had been performed in all the localities of Bam province in other to have a better assessment of contamination scale. A total of 707 drilling water samples have been selected randomly in 9 communes and analysed for the arsenic level using atomic absorption spectrometry with hydride generation. The results showed that 11% of drillings have an arsenic concentration above the recommended WHO requirements with Rouko commune having the highest rate of high arsenic level (22%).

Abstract: Influence of Nitrogen Fertilization and Management Practices on Dry Matter Production and Nutritional Value on Andropogon gayanus Kunth in Burkina Faso. The influence of nitrogen fertilization and harvesting practices on biomass production, chemical composition and nutritional value were studied on Andropogon gayanus Kunth forages set in Sudanese agroclimatic zone of Burkina Faso. The first year was spent to establish an adequate plant population, by transplantation of Andropogon gayanus stumps; then, four nitrogen doses were applied on experimental blocs during the second year: a) 0 N-units/ha (0 kilos of urea/ha) as Control, b) 18.5 N-units/ha (40 kilos of urea/ha), c) 37 N-units/ha (80 kilos of urea/ha) and d) 76 N-units/ha (150 kilos of urea/ha). Also, three harvesting intervals were applied as follows: harvesting i) every 30 days, ii) 40 days and iii) once at ear emergence. Each factor combination was repeated 4 times. Results indicated that treatment 67 N-u/ha combined with harvesting once at ear emergence led to the higher total dry matter (DM) production (7.6 tons DM/ha), while harvesting every 30 days showed the best expression of nitrogen fertilization effects. This harvesting interval (30 days), associated with moderate nitrogen fertilization dose (37 N-units/ha) gave an excellent forage containing 90 g DNM/kg DM, 0.81 French Feed Unit for Milk Cropping Andropogon gayanus Kunth under moderate fertilization doses and using adequate harvesting practice seems to be a suitable alternative to provide enough quantity of good quality forage.

Abstract: Introduction: Self-mutilation of the external genitalia is rare. It occurs most often on a psychotic ground. Case Report: Mr. P.O. 25-year-old, a dress maker, admitted to the urological emergency for self-section of the penile. The patient had cut his penile with a razor blade and the amputated distal extremity had been thrown in the water closet. The patient was admitted 19 hours after the act of self-harm. Clinical examination had found a stable hemodynamic status, a section of the penile at its root. Psychiatrically schizophrenia evolving for 08 months was diagnosed. An attempt of penile reconstruction was performed. The patient benefited serum and tetanus vaccine, antibiotic and neuroleptics. The parents asked to go home against medical advice the 5th day. Conclusion: The management of self-mutilation of external genitalia is multidisciplinary including surgery and psychiatry.

Abstract: Foreign bodies of the bladder are rares. The presence of a foreign body in the bladder is often anecdotic. We report a case of acute generalized peritonitis due to migration of a ballpoint pen from bladder to great peritoneal cavity in a 17-year-old man. He was admitted for a peritoneal syndrome after introducing a ballpoint pen into the urethra to masturbation purposes. He has no psychiatric history. Exploration had found an agglutination of small bowel loops around the ballpoint pen. The ballpoint pen was about 13.5 cm long and was transfixing the small intestine. We had noted about 20 cm of ileal necrosis about 30 cm from the ileocecal junction. An exit port was located at the posterior wall of the bladder. We performed?a resection of the necrotic portion followed by end-to-end anastomosis. Bladder foreign bodies can have serious complications such as the formation of an acute surgical abdomen after migration of the foreign body. The extraction must be quickly carried as soon as the diagnosis is made to avoid these complications.

Abstract: Introduction: Ballistic traumas of the external genitalia are rare especially in civil practice. Emergency surgical exploration is the rule. Case Report: Mr. F.Y., 29 years old, a security agent, admitted to the Urological Emergency Unit of Yalgado Ouédraogo University Hospital of Ouagadougou for trauma of the penile and left purse by firearm. The clinical examination revealed a good hemodynamic status, bladder distension. A suprapubic catheterization was performed. We noted a transfixing and bleeding wound on the penile, and on the left purse which was edematous. The patient was admitted to the operation room 07 hours after trauma. Exploration found a total destruction of the left testicle classified grade 5 of the classification of the American Association of the Surgery of Trauma (AAST). We performed a left orchiectomy. There was a partial rupture of the ventral face of the penile urethra. We performed an end-to-end anastomosis on a Foley catheter CH 18. The Foley catheter was removed after two weeks. Urination was spontaneous without dysuria. Erections were painless and without kinking of penile. Conclusion: Open traumas of the external genitalia are rare and their treatment is an extreme surgical emergency.

Abstract: Introduction: Cystostomy allows under certain circumstances deriving the urine. This is the most performed surgery in uro-andrological emergencies. Complications can occur. We aim to analyze the indications, technical aspects and complications of suprapubic cystostomies in the urological emergency unit at CHU-YO. Patients and Methods: Between October 2013 and May 2014 we conducted a prospective study of all patients who underwent suprapubic cystostomy. Results: 86 cases of cystostomy were noted or 77.5% of surgical procedures performed in uro-andrological emergency. All patients were male. The average age of patients was 52.5 years. The AUR represented 88.4% of indications. The prostate tumor represented 65.8% of the etiologies of AUR. The cystostomy was performed under local anesthesia in 87.2% of cases. Peritoneal gap was noted in 5.8%, parietal suppuration in 12.8%. A death by generalized acute peritonitis was noted in one case. Conclusion: Suprapubic cystostomy presents a non-negligible morbidity and mortality and must be mastered.

Safe drinking water access for rural populations in developing countries remains a challenge for a sustainable development. The study aims to investigate the drinking water quality and the factors affecting this quality in the Sourou valley in Burkina Faso. A total of 135 water samples were collected in sterile glass bottles during the dry seasons 2007, 2008, and 2012 from 10 drillings and 5 wells. Fifteen physicochemical parameters and two fecal pollution indicators (Escherichia coli and fecal Coliforms) were monitored based on laboratory standard methods. Datas were analyzed, using the Student t’ test and XLSTAT 7.5.2 statistical software. From results obtained, water quality was related to water source and sampling period as well (p < 0.0001). 30% of drillings provided water with nitrates concentration over the World Health Organization (WHO) guideline value. High turbidity was also observed for some drillings. Moreover, 90% of drillings showed water total hardness largely over the WHO threshold value. Water from drillings were exempt of fecal pollution, contrasting with the wells one which appeared uniformly polluted with concentrations exceeding sometimes 103 and 104 CFU/100 ml for E. coli and fecal Coliforms, respectively. Field investigations showed a preference of wells as drinking water source, and that appeared related to the lack of self-management of drillings and to cultural considerations. Overall, this study highlighted that a regular survey of water quality, management of protection zones around drinking water sources, sensitization on water resources self-management, hygiene and health issues, and providing appropriate household disinfection methods could help advancing to reach an effective safe drinking water access for rural populations in the country.
