The Other Side of Nigeria

The Other Side of Nigeria

Nigeria needs little or no introduction globally. Yes, often when the word “Nigeria” is mentioned, many negative thoughts spring up. From dishonesty to other criminal activities, very few people have positive thoughts about Nigeria. Absolutely, some criminally minded elements have constantly painted a wrong image of Nigeria, resulting in the unfortunate negative perception of all Nigerians. But despite the bad image, there are very good, hardworking, honest Nigerians. Nigeria is a great country with unbelievably hospitable, incredibly smart, innovative, educated and intelligent people. Unfortunately, the Western media would prefer to...

South Africa: The Presidential President Zuma

South Africa: The Presidential President Zuma

In his final speech as party leader at Saturday’s conference opening, the outgoing ANC president Jacob Zuma has proved yet again why he is so presidential in his words and actions. While thanking the ANC members for giving him the opportunity to serve, President Jacob Zuma claimed that he never wanted to be President. Of course, one of the presidential features is the ability to use euphemism to present oneself or a situation simple or mild. However, it becomes a political ridicule, if one uses euphemism in a rather clear...

Slavery and Inhumanity in Libya: The Masking of the Western Hypocrisy

Some call it migration; others prefer the word human trafficking. Yet, the term, slavery has been constantly used of recent – especially amongst the West. Regardless, the miserable situation faced by migrants in Libya, who are determined to cross over to Europe,  is not only inhumane, it is definitely a modern day slavery, to say the least. However, the question is, has the West the moral authority to condemn the slavery in Libya? In their attempt to migrate to Europe for a greener pasture, many migrants – most of them, ...

South Africa: Ramaphosa and the Ghost of Kuzwayo

The attempt to succeed the incumbent South African President Jacob Zuma is creating a lot of scrutiny and controversy. What else do you expect when you are dealing with or close to an incredibly controversial leader like Lord Zuma? To some South Africans, their aspiring ANC leader cum Presidential aspirant, Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa is a different political entity. Yes, different from the corrupt-ridden President Jacob Zuma, they would argue. However, to others, Mr. Ramaphosa is just the same old South African wine, labelled and neatly packaged in a new bottle....

Logically, governments should do all they can to encourage the police and other law enforcement agencies to do their work patriotically and diligently. That includes providing them with the necessary tools and equipment to make their work easy. The recent report from Kenya’s ministry in charge of policing indicates that the department may have lost at least $1.7m (£1.3m) due to corrupt practices in the purchase of officers’ shoes. Call it the Kenyan Police Shoe-gate, if you...

Africa: The Land of Scavengers.

In African, we often like to complain about our woes. We blame our leaders for all the shortcomings, from endemic corruption, nepotism, favouritism to miserable basic social services like water, housing, electricity, education, healthcare etc. But have we once asked ourselves who voted those lousy leaders in? We hear that power belongs to the people, but how much have we tried to transcend this into a reality? Hardly ever. Yes, elections are often manipulated and corrupt judges bought over by our rich oligarchs, but these social evils are only possible...
