SOUTH AFRICA ELECTIONS: VOTE ONLINE

Posted on

This is Africa Thisday’s polls. Let’s see who wins the general elections in South Africa today just before the Independent Electoral Commission, IEC, announces their official result.

South Africa’s Elections: Malema votes in Limpopo.

Posted on

ImageToday is South Africa’s general elections. Already, the Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema arrived at the Mponegele Primary School in Seshego, Limpopo, on Wednesday to cast his vote.

Malema arrived two hours after the voting station opened in his hometown.

Earlier, EFF and ANC supporters had a verbal altercation after ANC members set up a tent and distributed T-shirts bearing the face of President Jacob Zuma.

EFF members accused the ANC of lobbying for votes at the voting station.

Police and IEC officials intervened and the matter was resolved.

EFF member Josi Buthane expressed disappointment at the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC), saying the electoral body was not enforcing the IEC regulations properly.

He said they should have stopped ANC members from distributing T-shirts at the polling station.

There was a heavy police presence in the area.

Malema’s party is contesting the election for the first time.

Some analysts in Limpopo believe the EFF could take seats currently occupied by other opposition parties in the provincial legislature.

Malema was head of the ANC Youth League until he was expelled from the ANC. All voting stations should be open from 07:00 and close at 21:00.

The news of the arrest and detention of one Mrs. Nyadar Naomi Mutah who is a leader of the #BringBackOurGirls protest  at the order of Nigeria’s first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan was carried by SaharaReporters and it filtered through the internet. However, the Nigerian Police Force has denied arresting or detaining the said protest leader in an official statement released later today and signed by CSP Frank Mba. Below is a copy of the police statement:

As part of measures geared towards eliciting useful information that could help security agents in the ongoing effort at finding and rescuing female students recently abducted by terrorists, suspected to be Boko-Haram, in Chibok, Borno State, Police Operatives this morning, 05/05/2014 invited one Mrs Nyadar Naomi Mutah, a native of Chibok and Deputy Director at the National Directorate of Employment, Abuja.

It was purely an interactive and fact finding interview. Mrs Nyadar cooperated with the Police in the course of the interview and was immediately allowed to return home to her loved ones. She was never arrested nor detained as being wrongly speculated in some quarters.

Meanwhile, the Police and other security agencies are leaving no stone unturned at ensuring that the abducted school children are rescued.

#BringBackOurGirls: Abducted Girls turned to Sex Slaves.

Boko Haram insurgents have turned the abducted Chibok schoolgirls into sex slaves, raping them 15 times a day, one of the victims that escaped has said.
In an interview published in the UK newspaper, Mirror on Saturday, the girl said she was prized as a terror leader’s wife because she had been a virgin. She said young female captives were forced to convert to Islam and had their throats cut if they refused.

A girl called Rehab, 17, who also escaped from the sect, told how she jumped from a truck with schoolmate, Comfort, 15, as they were driven into the forest.

She said: “We summoned up some courage and grabbed some of the branches and clung on to them while the truck moved on with the other girls.

“We jumped down and began to run into the darkness. Comfort and I went in the same direction, but four other girls took the path back to a village. We didn’t know where we were but we kept running.”

Malam Ali Iliya, father of another schoolgirl who escaped, said: “My daughter said when the trailer got stuck, some of the girls began to jump out and run for their lives and she followed suit. We are lucky our children were not shot.”

Gordon Brown’s arrival

Describing the kidnap of 329 schoolgirls’ as one of the worst mass kidnappings in modern history, the Mirror said the Nigerian government appears to have done little and that former UK’s Prime Minister Gordon Brown is coming to the country tomorrow in his role as the UN’s Special Adviser on girls’ education to secure the pupils’ release.

But with stories of many already trafficked into neighboring Chad and Cameroon for just 2,000Naira (£7.50), campaigners fear that without urgent action they will never be seen again, the report said.

As he gets ready for his difficult mission to Nigeria on Tuesday, Gordon Brown said: “Abducting children is a heinous crime that the international authorities are determined to punish.”

#BringBackOurGirls : Christian Association Of Nigeria Releases ‘List’ of Abducted High School Girls

Posted on

Image

Evangelist Matthew Owojaiye of the Old Time Revival Hour Church in Kaduna has published a list of 180 abducted girls of the Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, calling on all Nigerian Christians for lamentation prayers for their safe release.
The list published by Evangelist Owojaiye features 180 girls, of whom 165 are said to be Christian.

Text of the statement:

ABOMINATION! ABOMINATION!!

CHRISTIAN GIRLS ABDUCTED IN CHIBOK, BORNO STATE.

Daughters of Zion taken captive, to be treated as slaves and sold into marriage to unclean people. Abomination has been committed.

Raise lamentation to High Heavens. What a shame on the Church of the Living God.

FACTS:

Chibok Local Government is 90% Christians. Majority of the girls abducted are Christian! Why did Boko Haram visit Chibok Local Government? Why didn’t they visit so many other Local Government Girls Secondary Schools in Borno State?

The Church in Nigeria is hereby called to A Lamentation Prayer.

Time:

Every Christian home must raise a lamentation to heaven daily. Let God arise and defend his Name, Honour and Majesty.

Let a 15 minutes cry to heaven be done in every Church every time they gather. Oh God, Rend the Heavens and come down!

Why should the people say where is our God?

The Military may not be able to solve the problem but prayer will. Ordinary Military force may not get them out! Intensive Agonizing Prayer will.

 

WHAT NEXT AFTER RECOVERY?

We make the following demands of the Federal Government whose duty it was to protect the innocent girls.

1. A N50million damage as trauma compensation to each girl.

2. A preparation to take each girl to an overseas University on Government scholarship by September 2014. Preparation for that must start now!

3. SS1 and SS2 girls in that school must be transferred to schools of their choice from Government coffer. How can any girl feel safe in this kind of school? Living in perpetual fear of attack?

LET GOD ARISE, LET ALL HIS ENEMIES BE SCATTERED.
