BETRAYAL: BEST FRIEND CAUGHT PANTS DOWN WITH FRIEND’S WIFE IN LUSAKA.

Caught with pants downA LUSAKA man agreed with his wife to pretend she had given in to his friend’s persistent sexual advances so as to trap him.
This was heard in Lusaka boma court where Austin Shuna, aged 26, said he caught his friend Christopher Mweemba, aged 24, naked attempting to rape his 24-year old wife, Fridah Muyumba.
Shuna told the court that his wife told him that Mweemba had been making sexual advances towards her but that he never believed her because he took Mweemba as his brother.
He said after she persisted with her claims, he decided to make a plan with his wife so that they could catch Mweemba red-handed if he was to believe her.
Shuna said he told his wife to accept Mweemba’s love proposal and inform him of every move Mweemba was taking.
“I never wanted to believe that my best friend was after my wife, hence I told my wife to accept him and inform me of every move he was making.
“Just as we agreed with my wife, one afternoon in July, I told Mweemba that I was be going to see my boss later in the day and that I wasn’t coming back home,” he said.
He told the court that Mweemba went to Shuna’s house around 19:00 hours to meet the plaintiff’s wife and told her that they should meet in an unfinished building so thay could have sex.
But when his wife followed Mweemba to the nearby building, Shuna also went after them where he found his friend naked struggling to have sex with his wife before the plaintiff grabbed his clothes as evidence.
In his defence, Mweemba said he went to Shuna’s house because he had asked him to take the phone to his wife who was not picking his calls the time he called her.
“I never wanted to have sex with his wife, I went there because he asked me to take the phone, and his wife asked me to help her remove some things in the shop when I reached there,” he said.
But Magistrate Mable Mwaba ordered Mweemba to compensate Shuna with K5,000, saying it was clear that he wanted to sleep with his friend’s wife.

EXPOSED: EBOLA’S TOP SECRET CURE EXPOSED.

ebolaaA few American scientists exposed mice to Ebola Virus and then obtained the antibodies in a serum which the mice produced to fight against the invading Ebola virus.

CNN said “The medicine is a three-mouse monoclonal antibody, meaning that mice were exposed to fragments of the Ebola virus and then the antibodies generated within the mice’s blood were harvested to create the medicine. It works by preventing the virus from entering and infecting new cells.”

The serum is stored at Subzero temperature.

Testing of the serum:

Some monkeys were exposed to Ebola virus. Four of the monkeys were injected with the serum and they survived while the control monkey was not given the serum and it died after few days of exposure to Ebola virus.

Human Application:
Sometime last month (July 2014), two American doctors, Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebols who were taking care of Ebola patients in Liberia were reported to have tested positive to Ebola virus. The American scientists who obtained the serum secured permissions/consents to treat Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebols with their serum. According to CNN, the experimental serum “stored at subzero temperatures, reached the hospital in Liberia where Brantly and Writebol were being treated Thursday morning. Doctors were instructed to allow the serum to thaw naturally without any additional heat. It was expected that it would be eight to 10 hours before the medicine could be given, according to a source familiar with the process. Brantly asked that Writebol be given the first dose because he was younger and he thought he had a better chance of fighting it, and she agreed. However, as the first vial was still thawing, Brantly’s condition took a sudden turn for the worse. Brantly began to deteriorate and developed labored breathing. He told his doctors he thought he was dying, according to a source with firsthand knowledge of the situation. Knowing his dose was still frozen, Brantly asked if he could have Writebol’s now-thawed medication. It was brought to his room and administered through an IV. Within an hour of receiving the medication, Brantly’s condition dramatically improved. He began breathing easier; the rash over his trunk faded away. One of his doctors described the events as “miraculous.” By the next morning, Brantly was able to take a shower on his own before getting on a specially designed Gulfstream air ambulance jet to be evacuated to the United States.”

Brantly is currently been treated in Emory University Hospital facilities in Atlanta and he is reported to be “miraculously” improving. He has very high chance of been cured. Alas, America has kept this a top secret.

In as much as I celebrate the courage of the scientists in obtaining the serum, I also give them a thumps down for limiting the use of the serum to only America/Americans. If I were them, Africa would have access to this serum as soon as possible but that would mean minimum financial profit to the inventors/investors but maximum health care to the patients. This is another reason why African scientists must be challenged to solve this Ebola puzzle by ourselves and for ourselves.

I want to read in the newspapers that African scientists have also obtained so much quantity of the said serum, secured necessary certifications and commenced treatment of Ebola patients. We shouldn’t let our irresponsibility rob our brothers and sisters their precious lives by a ‘curable’ disease. Its time to prove your Bachelor of Science Degree. Go back to the Laboratories. It’s ‘Operation Cure Ebola’.

Brazil fans set bus on fire in Sao Paulo after World Cup defeat.

Brazilian police were on high alert following their country’s humiliating exit from the World Cup as they feared angry fans could riot after the defeat.

Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side were thrashed 7-1 in the semi-final by Germany in Belo Horizonte.

And while the wide spread rioting that was feared did not happen, there were some reports of trouble in and around the stadium after the game and in other cities across Brazil.

The Brazilian cities which played host to fierce protests before the tournament were mostly calm after the match.

Although authorities were called to a densely-populated area of Sao Paulo after supporters reportedly set a bus alight, leaving it as little more than a burnt-out shell.

Security was beefed up around the stadium as one fan, Samir Kelvin, clung to a streetlamp and cried: ‘I have nothing left! I am Brazilian and humiliated I want to kill myself.’

A woman shouted ‘What shame, what shame!’ as a man nearby banged his head against a bar table.

With Brazil dumped out of its own World Cup in such rough fashion, ‘you are going to have the most depressed country ever,’ fan Pablo Ramoz said.

Brazil spent billions of dollars preparing for the tournament, and the high cost ignited intense anger and protests against the World Cup over the past year. Demonstrators complained so much was being spent when the nation is saddled with woeful public services.

Few thought Brazil’s humiliating loss would spark renewed mass protests, but it is sure to put a severely sour taste back into the mouths of the nation’s fans. Many were already strongly questioning whether it was worth it to hold the event, a bad omen for President Dilma Rousseff as she looks ahead to the election.

‘I hope this can make people wake up and start thinking with their heads and not their emotions and that people translate the anger they are feeling at the ballot boxes,’ said Antonio Hipolito, who works at a bookstore in a wealthy part of Rio but lives in a distant, hardscrabble neighborhood.

‘Soccer is just an illusion and we need to wake up to reality,’ he said.

BREAKING NEWS: SOLDIERS TAKE OVER LAGOS-IKORODU ROAD.

Nigerian soldiers have taken over the busy Lagos-Ikorodu road, assaulting civilians, and burning down public transportation vehicles known as “BRT buses” over the death of one of their colleagues who died in an auto accident involving one of the buses.

An eye-witness said trouble started when a BRT bus hit a soldier on a bike. Nobody knows if the soldier died (though there are indications that he may have been crushed to death) but other soldiers immediately arrived the scene and started stopping all BRT buses on the express beating drivers and sending passengers out. Beating even passers-by who move too close to them or take pictures.

According the eye-witness who sent in the photos, two civilians were allegedly beaten up and a guy who was taking pictures was beaten and his phone smashed on the express road.

Then the soldiers allegedly started vandalizing the buses! According to the source, some soldiers left the express and took big sticks from women cooking by the road to break the glasses of the bus. Then one of them took stones and allegedly threw it into the crowd twice. Now the whole express is blocked.

MYSTERIOUS: Snakes, bees attack Boko Haram in Sambisa Forest

ImageMAIDUGURI—Some members of the Islamist sect, Boko Haram, arrested yesterday at Mairi ward behind University of Maiduguri by members of the Civilian JTF vigilante group, have confessed that most of them are fleeing the Sambisa Forest to areas across Borno State owing to what they believe is spiritual attacks from mysterious snakes and bees, which had killed many of their leaders.

sambisa-1According to Kolo Mustapha, one of the arrested insurgents, “most of us are fleeing because there are too many snakes and bees now in the forest. Once they bite, they disappear and the victims do not last for 24 hours.

“We were told that the aggrieved people who had suffered from our deadly mission, including the ghosts of some of those we killed, are the ones turning into the snake and bees.”

‘Our leaders fled, too’

He said some of their leaders have escaped to Cameroon because they are known to the Nigerian authorities and could be easily identified. According to him, those of them who lived all their lives in Maiduguri have nowhere to run to. So they returned and tried to sneak into town.

He said they came in last night and were trying to hide in some uncompleted buildings, when some members of the Civilian JTF saw them.

He said: “We are pleading with them to spare our lives. We were forced into the sect. But we know that it is not the right way. I personally have never killed anyone, but I have my friend here who had killed many people.”

Umar Abor, the other arrested sect member said Kolo Mustapha was lying as they had participated in all heinous acts of the sect.

He said: “We have fought together since 2010. We have fought in Marte, Bama, Buni Yadima and Gwoza. We were not in Chibok. We have not seen the girls, but we heard about the issue.

“Our leaders have been talking about it and we have been following all news from the radio. We decided to flee when almost all our comrades are leaving the Sambisa because of constant attacks by snakes and bees, which we were told was as a result of Chibok abducted schoolgirls.

“They (our leaders) told us that it was our enemies and aggrieved people that are hunting us through diabolical means. We were in the forest in 2010 and 2011. We left and came back last year but we have never experienced such attacks.

“That is why they believe the Chibok people are using juju to pursue us because of their children said to have been taken by our leaders.”

‘We‘ll reveal our hiding place’

According to him, they have realised their mistakes and repented, promising that if they are spared they would help the community in fishing out some of their comrades and will lead security agents where their comrades had fled.

One of the leaders of the Civilian JTF said many of the sect members had been fleeing the Sambisa Forest in the past two weeks and that most of them are being arrested and taken to the authorities, except when they resist arrest, in which case they are left with no option but to kill them.

He said: “These ones have not attempted to run or do anything bad. They promise to take us to where they hide their weapons. We are taking them to the chairman of our sector command before they are handed to security operatives.”

PRESIDENT JONATHAN’S CAMPAIGN PROMISES AND WHY HE MUST NOT FULFIL THEM. |AFRICA THISDAY

“…..To revive the rail system in the country 2- To complete Lagos to Jebba rail project 3-To intervene and revitalize the moribund Nigeria Machine Tools and other infrastructure owned by the federal government. 4-Government has budgeted N50b for job development and infrastructure *To modernize the ports *To complete the second River Niger bridge before the expiration of the tenure *To make the Minister of Works to imImagemediately start repairs of the road leading to Murtala Mohammed International Airport 5-To transform all major routes in Damaturu to federal roads *To assist in resuscitating all the collapsed industries in Kano state”…. “To address the issues of unemployment through diversification of the nation’s economy to that of sustainable agricultural development across the 36 states of federation 21-To reduce production cost by inviting manufacturers of high demand commodities in the country to set up production factories in the country 22-To get industries in Lagos up and running, also bring industries to the Niger Delta…”  and many more.

Jonathan is responsible for not fulfilling his promises. Nigerians are equally responsible. The real power of a state does not rest with the government, but with the people. If you voted for a legislator for money, you are responsible. If you are a legislator and you paid for vote, you are responsible.  If you are a member of the press and you fail to inform the people or campaign for a more free press, you are responsible.  If you do not vote, you are responsible. If you are a member of the executive and you are not transparent, you are corrupt. If you are a law enforcement agent and you receive corrupt payments, you are responsible. If you vote for people with no checkable employment history or known business, you are responsible.

I believe that responsibility for failure should be borne at the top. Accordingly, a nation is ever built or rebuilt from the bottom and therefore change can only come from the bottom and not from the top. Jonathan’s perception of the problem at hand was illusive and I believe he ought to have known that to achieve those objectives would require first, creating conditions that would enable the implementation of those policies. This can only be done through creating avenues of informing and empowering the people. This is where Nigerian press have failed.

The fight against corruption can only be won by the people, with the press as champions of accountability and with tough legislations billed from the house. This therefore, de-emphasises the power of the executive. Jonathan I am sure is a good man with the right ambitions. But, if we are to confront the challenges ever faced by Nigeria, we must begin from our communities, and unify against our community challenges; then encourage others and other communities to do the same. In this way, we would have begun to build a nation of our ideals; with the power to make changes and influence government decisions. But we need leadership from the bottom, at community levels. Unfortunately, our intentions at community levels are usually distracted and undermined through selfish power struggles that care less about the greater good and more about self interest in the short term. This is the very culture that sustains the degree of corruption in our country today. I contend that many Nigerian leaders’ understanding of corruption problems is misconceived. They understand it as just a crime. But it is not just a crime, it is a culture. It is only if and when corruption is recognized as a culture can we approach the problem with any reasonable prospect of success. From criminological perspective, crimes sustained by culture including terrorism require a situational approach of inducing public condemnation and shame along side severe punishment to those that commit such deadly crimes. Any approach must be accompanied by political and economic intervention aimed at job creation, dignity of labour (better conditions of work) and reasonable living wage to all public workers. If Nigeria were to begin these processes today, it can take up to 10years to realise.  As far as I can see, Nigeria has yet to begin.

I have read reports of Nigerian government paying millions of dollars to foreign security consultants who promise the country that they would deal with Boko Haram in 12 months.  As far as I can see there is yet to be a strategy for dealing with terrorism and other organized crimes, like kidnapping in Nigeria.  The fight against these crimes cannot be fought in isolation with corruption.   Terrorism and kidnapping are dangerously entangled with corruption in the Nigerian security context.  I can confidently predict that Nigeria’s sugar coated approach to terrorism in isolation with the underlying corruption, economic and political problems could finally bankrupt the nation within 10 years.

To deal with our security problems, Nigerian police and policing must be restructured and reorganized to meet the security challenges of this century.  I know many reorganizations of the police force have taken place in recent times; but moves lack strategic thinking.

Without a doubt, Nigeria has been thrown off balance by the new wave of crime and terrorism.  Plural policing and expansion of the Nigerian private security industry has never been more urgent.  To this end, Nigeria must relax company formation rules and encourage entrepreneurship in order to stimulate the growth of more indigenous corporations able to compete nationally and internationally with foreign counterparts.  In this way it is possible to develop the Nigerian private sector and decrease over-dependence on foreign contractors or consultants who may not commit to any long-term strategic security plan.  This will then ensure the stability of a strategic security plan to deal with the security challenges faced by Nigeria and Nigerians and facilitate intelligence gathering through job creation for young people.

Terrorists are faceless.  Regardless of what their motivations could be, it is important to deal with the obvious problem – terrorism by dealing with the injustices of our time – poverty.  Participatory democracy that recognizes the role of a free media, engaged with the business of informing the people and holding the government to account on behalf of the citizens.  Nigeria will then become a nation with intellectually stimulated citizens.  In reality, this will result in opposition of or support for the government; and both are necessary.

At present Nigeria has no structure.  In this century and age of globalization and free market economy, country with poor political, economic, social and security structure will benefit less from all that globalization have to offer.  In this present world, it is easier for the most powerful nations to filter the ills that come with globalization or displace them to unprepared nations to deal with.  The ill of this new way of life in this century is corruption and countries that have no mechanism for dealing with or managing the problem will die.  So far, in my opinion, Pakistan and Nigeria are in the same league and these two nations top corruption league as well, in the world today.

The world is neither more secure nor less secure today compared to the past years.  The end of world war II was followed by cold war.  The UK, America, Russia and some other G-8 Nations faced a different threat during the cold war – the threat of subversion and overthrow of government by other enemy states and state sponsorship of terrorism.  This threat changed following 9/11 attack and the world united against a common enemy, the non-state terrorists we know today.  This is what they mean when they say that the US and the UK are saferand the world is safer today.  As these nations have better resources and are better prepared, terrorism has been displaced to countries that are considered easier targets as the terrorists continue to redefine and modify their interpretation of who their enemies are.  Their original enemies were the US and the West.  Now their new enemies are anybody or anything associated with the America and the West (justified through wrongful interpretation of the takfir doctrine in the Sharia as Haram) as it became increasingly unlikely that they would successfully carryout another atrocity in American or UK soil.

The reason for this brief narrative is to educate Nigerians on the sort of enemy Nigeria as a nation is up against and that there exists no quick-fix.  It is therefore in the interest of all Nigerians to help solve this problem through democratic involvement.  Goodluck Jonathan is just one man. But as a leader, he is responsible for uniting us all against these problems and creating the conditions that encourage participatory democracy through transparency and governance.

Finally, it is important to clarify that the level of corruption as used in this article is beyond that of a student bribing a teacher or police collecting ‘egunje’ or public servants collecting private fees to do what they are already paid by the state for.  The corruption at the back of my mind is at the high level and includes international payments from foreign private organizations to Nigerian public officials to facilitate transactions or negotiations and the power or influence of non-state actors on the government or government agencies for personal political, economic or social gain; minority of law enforcement agents helping criminals or terrorists for personal gains.  Foreign governments employing private organizations to negotiate deals with the Nigerian government.  This problem is bigger than one man; especially one that enjoys life and cares less about the future of the country.  But whenever solved, Nigeria could be in a position to compete with any other world power, given our population, diversity, landmass and natural resources. And Nigerians will become what they are created to be – free and independent.

God Bless Nigeria.
