“Don’t call my name when I am busy working” – Agama

We all know Agama hardly can control his insatiable desire for two things: beer and women. One day, Agama sees a beautiful damsel while he is drinking. So much hypnotized by the beauty of the lady, Agama mistakenly puts the bottle of the beer he is drinking in his nose instead of the mouth.

Why You May Need a Therapist

 Ironically, what makes life, which is enmeshed in problems, meaningful, is its ability to act as our teacher in the tempestuous journey of maturity. Problems are inevitable in life. We learn from them in order to make our lives worth living and purposeful. However, not everyone can cope with these inevitable problems in life. While some people can successfully take care of their life obstacles, others are overwhelmed by them. A good reason to go online and seek a…

South Sudan and Ceasefire: Real or Same Old Story?

The recent promise by South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir to accept a peace deal, which would end years of civil war in the world’s youngest country has been received with cautious optimism, to say the least. To many, there is little reason for jubilation over the statement of the President or his rival Riek Machar, if their past empty promises are anything to go by.

Leaving The Political Arena Fearlessly And With Integrity Intact

Ideally, the aim of occupying a political position is to use it to bring about meaningful and positive changes in the lives of others, including, but not limited to providing much needed social services to the populace. Sadly, many a leader in Africa and other places, have rather used their political position to not only enrich themselves but cause unimaginable hardship to others. The result is that, in most cases, when these leaders have left the political territory, their…

The Ethiopia-Eritrea Peace Summit: Time for Emulation

Conflict is the mother of animosity, distrust, fear, violence, disunity, economic and social short nemesis and negligence.

HUMOUR FACTORY: The Millionaire Poor Preacher

We all hear and see them on the TV, preaching the words of God. They call themselves men and women of God. Hum, it has become impossible to verify this claim, hasn’t it? You don’t have access to God’s e-mail or WhatsApp number to clarify the claim of these preachers. So, one is left with only one option: judge the preachers by their deeds. “Eneke the bird says that since men have learned to shoot without missing, he has…

The Mediterranean will become a sea of chaos if I am toppled from power.”  This is not a prophecy from God, rather it was a warning from no other person than the former Libyan President Colonel Muammar Gaddafi to the ex-Prime Minister of the UK Tony Blair during a telephone conversation with him on 25 February 2011. While the Western…

Africa and the Misplaced Priorities

Time and opportunities wait for no one. Life is full of risks and opportunities; you need to take the right steps and make the best decisions in order to achieve something tangible in life. Opportunities are, in fact, chances that not only come to us in life but are equally created for ourselves, following many years of hard work and sacrifices. Unfortunately, if you do not grab the chances or make the right choices and decisions in life, you…

When The Lie Detector Takes Over From The Police and Prosecutor

We hardly can discuss problems facing Africa without first talking about endemic and tenacious corruption. Sadly, the level of corruption in Africa has become so mountainous and yet common, that sometimes, many Africans hardly lose a night’s sleep over the cankerworm, which has effectively destroyed the continent and created increasingly a precarious future for young Africans. But accepting the infectious corruption as a way of life in Africa is hardly the best way to kill the giant monster sucking…

Vote for  Mr Africa!

Often we hear that African leaders are corrupt, incompetent, selfish, visionless…. (continue counting till the day breaks…). While we question why those clueless Africans are elected or accepted by the masses, more questions come to mind. Could it be that the African masses share some blames for the incompetence and bad leadership of their leaders? Or can one argue that some Africans perhaps exhibit some characteristics of their leaders? The same leaders they criticise? Same genes? Hum! Isn’t time…
