    “African leaders do not resign, that’s cowardice and the fact that UK Prime Minister-David Cameron has just resigned confirms everything I have said about him—he is weak and a coward.” President (now Ex) Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe in 2016. The recent confusion about what is happening in Zimbabwe, with President Robert Mugabe refusing to resign, (now he has finally resigned, 21 November 2017) even when pressured and being pampered has again brought to the fore the obstinacy that exists in…

    How times have changed. What do they teach students at medical schools these days? To be heartless, devoid of sympathy and bereft of empathy? In the good old days, medical doctors could not bring it upon themselves to tell terminally ill people or their close relatives that their death is not only certain, but that it is around the corner. They would go about it in a round-about manner like this: “Papa (or mama) you have lived a good life”…

    The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, to me, is the greatest Yoruba oba alive today. Greatest in terms of his intellectual capacity and his understanding of the responsibilities culture has placed on his divine shoulders. Although the vault of the late Ooni of Ife, Oba Sijuwade Okunade, bespoke on riches untold, Alaafin’s unspeakable wealth lies in his unequalled understanding of the Yoruba’s resplendent history, mores and culture. He exemplified his matchless repertoire of Yoruba history during the inauguration of…

    Gov.

He urged every Nigeria to support President Buhari for second term, adding that all but two Governors in the country, regardless of party affiliation, were in support of a second term for the President. “President Buhari is the best for the country at the moment and that there could not have been a better option now.‘’I am a believer of Buhari and I made it clear years ago that if President Buhari is running for president, I will not run. “Now God has chosen him to be the president of Nigeria and some of us are witnesses that Buhari was and is still the best for Nigeria at this material time,” he said. Okorocha also said that Nigeria’s quick exit from economic recession was a testament to Buhari’s tenacity, adding that he had shelved his ambition in preference to support Buhari.

  • Zimbabwe parliament opens session to begin Mugabe’s impeachment Business and Economy Zimbabwe parliament opens session to begin Mugabe’s impeachment
    Zimbabwe’s parliament opened a session on Tuesday to begin the process of impeaching President Robert Mugabe, which could lead to him being stripped of office, an AFP correspondent saw. Parliament speaker Jacob Mubenda gave permission for a joint session of the House of Assembly and the Senate to debate a motion that would trigger impeachment proceedings against Mugabe. “This motion is unprecedented in the history of post-independence Zimbabwe,” Mubenda declared. Lawmakers from across the political spectrum have called on Mugabe to quit after the military seized power and tens of thousands of citizens took to the streets to demand the 93-year-old’s resignation. They accuse him of allowing his ambitious wife Grace to plunder the country and to usurp his power. She emerged as the front-runner to replace the veteran leader when Mugabe fired his vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa. That prompted the current crisis as the army, alarmed by Grace’s rise, deployed armoured vehicles on the streets and took power. There were tense protests outside parliament as hundreds of demonstrators — from rival political parties — shouted for Mugabe to go.
