Raila embark to UK While Kenya In Limbo

Kenya's High Court has ruled that all candidates who participated in the 8 August presidential election can now stand in the re-run later this month.
This comes a day after the main opposition candidate, Raila Odinga, announced that he was pulling out. The re-run was ordered by the Supreme Court, which annulled the August vote won by President Uhuru Kenyatta, citing irregularities and illegalities. But Mr Odinga says that nothing has changed, so the same mistakes would probably be made in the new election. Meanwhile parliament has passed a series of changes to the election law, which the opposition has condemned. Meanwhile Rt Hon Raila will be London to attend a public forum at the Chatham House, UK, where he is listed as the guest speaker in the event dubbed Kenya’s Next Test; Democracy, Elections and the Rule of Law Research. “He will be in London for a day and half. He will leave Nairobi on Wenesnday night to be in London in time for the event that begins in the afternoon,” his adviser Salim Lone told media The ODM leader will discuss the Supreme Court ruling that nullified the August 8, the presidential election and the reforms the Opposition

P-Square finally falls apart

Peter Okoye, one of the twin singing sensations, P-Square, has reportedly sent a termination letter to their lawyer, Festus Keyamo, demanding a termination of the partnership agreement between the duo.
The music duo P-Square’s Peter and Paul Okoye finally split on Sunday after years of dominating the Nigerian music scene. In the letter obtained by Linda Ikeji’s Blog, LIB, Peter made some allegations against his twin, Paul and older brother/group manager, Jude. Speaking to LIB, Peter confirmed the sad development, saying; “Psquare is no more. I have nothing against my brothers. I saw Paul’s post on Instagram about blood being thicker than water.” “Who is water and who is blood?” Peter asked, adding that his nuclear family (wife and kids) are very important to him and he has decided to move on with his personal brand – Mr P. According to Peter, Paul is no longer willing to co-operate with him, even going as far as cancelling their planned U.S. tour this year without informing him, and he (Peter) has exhausted all options to make it work. He also accused Paul of slandering his wife and children with lies on social media and alleged that they have now been”receiving threatening messages.” Prominent Lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Festus Keyamo, who represents the Okoye brothers has said the wives of the artistes have no hand in their crisis. According to the lawyer, the quarrel was not the fault of any of the parties – including their wives as expressed by social media pundits. He expressed the optimism that the disagreement among them – including the elder brother, Jude – would be resolved. The statement also appealed that the public should “refrain from jumping into uninformed conclusions about this feud.”

Tsvangirai battling 4 his life

MDC president Morgan Tsvangirai, battling for his life, and was urgently flown to South Africa on Friday night after his health condition deteriorated. Tsvangirai had been addressing a party meeting in Kodama when he allegedly started experiencing severe vomiting, prompting his doctor to have him transported to South Africa. The MDC says its leader has brushed aside his health scare to encourage Zimbabweans to register to vote in the coming elections. As the election draws closer Chamisa, whom Tsvangirai catapulted to the position of vice-president last year, could capitalize the situation and be a front-runner to take over from his boss. “There are calls within the party and among our supporters that Tsvangirai should stay at home, rest and relax because the extra work he is doing is taking a heavy toll on his health. The emergency which saw him being airlifted to South Africa left the party in panic,” the source said.

Mother and son chosen to live on a high street bench for three years

A Somali mother and son were evicted from their flat in Tooting, London, in 2014 for not paying their rent
Since then, the pair have been living on a bench on the busy Tooting High Street and sleep under tarpaulin. The council tried to rehome them but they turned down two-bedroom flats, which usually cost £1,500 a month. They chose to remain on the bench despite final pleas from their family and members of the local Somali community.
The mother and son have been homeless since December 2014 when they were evicted from the flat they shared in Tooting. It is thought a death in the family and a period of hospitalisation led to them living on the streets.

Sign petition in support of Martha Ngosi

The Canadian government have issued a deportation note for Martha Ngosi. Shes due to be flown on the 16th of September so we appeal to all communites to sign Martha petition.Please sign the petition, and ask the Honourable Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Ralph Goodale, to cancel my September 16 deportationhttps://www.change.org/p/honourable-minister-ralph-goodale-honourable-minister-goodale-stop-martha-s-deportation?recruiter=739255900&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=tap_basic_share

My name is Martha Ngosi. I am a 72 year old woman and I am currently scheduled to be deported back to Zimbabwe on September 16. I am terrified at the thought of being deported. I have not been to Zimbabwe since I left in 1999, so I have nowhere to live there, and my Doctors in Canada are worried that if I am deported, my health will deteriorate and I could get very sick or even die. There are many reasons why deporting me to Zimbabwe will put my health at risk;

1) In Zimbabwe, there are often shortages of vital medication, so I do not think that I will be able to get any of the medications that I currently take to regulate my blood pressure and leg swelling, manage my vertigo, and prevent my osteoporosis from getting worse. My Doctors have told me that without my medication, I could get very sick and I might even die.

2) If I am deported I will also not be able to have regular visits with a Doctor. In Canada, I need to see my family Doctor frequently to monitor and manage my Hypertension, Venous Insufficiency, Cervical Radiculopathy, Vertigo, Gallstones, Osteoporosis, and Dyslipidemia.

3) In Zimbabwe, the Hospitals are often closed because there is no medicine or there is no Doctor available. Because of Zimbabwe's frequent hospital closures, if I were to have a medical emergency in Zimbabwe, I would likely not be able to access emergency medical treatment or surgery. This is very worrisome to me, because my Doctors have told me that I will eventually need surgery for my Gallstones, and if my Hypertension is not managed, I could have a heart attack or stroke. If these things were to happen, or if I were to have any other type of medical emergency (which could happen at my age...) I would not be able to get emergency care.

I know all of this from first-hand experience; my husband died in Zimbabwe in 2015 because he could not get the medical care that he needed.

I left Zimbabwe in 1999, and I have not returned since. Like many others, I lived in the United States without immigration status for many years, because there was no way for me to apply for permanent status. Then when Donald Trump was elected, I was afraid I would be deported so I came to Canada seeking refuge. I now live in Hamilton Ontario with my brother, and I love it here. After living without immigration status in the United States for 17 years, I finally feel like I have a home. I love Canada, and I want to live the rest of my days here.

I have applied for permanent residence in Canada, but the Canada Border Services Agency is trying to deport me while my permanent residence application is in process. I beg you to please sign my petition, so that the Canada Border Services Agency will not deport me, and I will be allowed to stay in Canada while my permanent residence application is finalized. I have not broken any of Canada's laws while I have lived here, and if I am allowed to stay in this country I will do my best to be a model citizen, and contribute to this country the best that I can.

If I am deported to Zimbabwe, I do not even know where I will live or how I will support myself. At my age, I will not be able to get a job and support myself financially. I am afraid that I will have to live on the street. I cannot imagine returning to Zimbabwe. I have been gone for so long, it simply is not my home anymore. I feel like Canada is my home, and I want to live here more than anything in the world.

Thank you very much for reading my story. Please sign my petition, and ask Ralph Goodale, the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, to intervene and tell the Canada Border Services Agency to cancel my deportation date, so that I am not deported back to Zimbabwe on September 16.

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,

Martha

North Korea nuclear testing

This file handout picture from the French space agency CNES, Airbus Defense and Space and the 38 North analysis group, shows a satellite image taken on April 12 of North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear test site. Picture: AFP NORTH Korea’s provocative nuclear testing may not necessarily lead to war. But there may be another catastrophic risk: the mountain beneath which it has exploded six bombs may be on the point of collapse. Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post is quoting a Chinese scientist as saying if the peak crumbles, clouds of radioactive dust and gas will blanket the region. At the heart of the fears is the Punggye-ri test site in the rogue-nation’s northeast. It’s carved deep into the side of Mount Mantap. This is a nondescript granite peak in the remote and heavily forested Hamgyong mountain range about 80km from Chongjin, the nearest big city.

Brian Dogged deportation to Zimbabwe

Last week Wolverhampton community  was shocked to find out that  Brian was being denied the opportunity to study at Oxford University and facing deportation to Zimbabwe. But people power saved him


Brian was abandoned in Zimbabwe until he was six. He was looked after by a British family and then, at the age of 15, the UK became his home. Only when Brian made his university application, did he discover that he wasn’t granted the correct status by the Home Office.

We all watched him graft hard for the 3 A*s and an A that earned him the place on Oxford’s renowned chemistry course. But mostly, we watched him each day, for years, work hard simply to help those around him. To deny Brian his right to live in the UK over an error that wasn’t his fault seemed so unjust.

Luke Wilcox  petition helped Brian remain in the UK. Wilcox in his statement states that,For people in Brian’s shoes, it’s difficult to speak-up. Brian wouldn’t want to cause a fuss. But knowing that my friend could lose everything, and that I could lose my friend, I started this petitionon Change.org in hope that the Home Office would pay attention and see that this decision was wrong. What happened next, was incredible.

Re-election 4 Kenya

Nairobi - Kenya's Supreme Court has overturned the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta, citing irregularities in last month's election. The court has called for a new election within 60 days. Opposition candidate Raila Odinga had claimed that the electronic voting results were hacked into and manipulated in favor of Kenyatta, who won a second term with 54 percent of the vote. Kenyans had been braced for another round of protests if the court upholds Kenyatta's victory. Odinga had unsuccessfully challenged the results of the 2013 vote.

The left-back was deemed surplus to requirements at the Emirates and the Hawthorns club moved to snap him up after a possible move to fellow Premier League side Watford fell through.The 27-year-old was once part of a much vaunted 'English core' at Arsenal but was allowed to leave this summer after a succession of injuries and new signings curbed his playing time. In a statement on Twitter, Gibbs, who made 230 appearances for Arsenal, paid tribute to his former club and Arsene Wenger. He wrote: 'Firstly I would like to say how delighted I am to sign for West Brom. 'It has been an amazing journey to play for my childhood club since I was 14.

Rest In Peace Moyo's

As the social media buzzy with the sad news of our fellow artist who was gunned down in Emnganwini surbubs has passed away. MaPecca, travelled the world with Siyaya, getting to perform at the world’s best venues. Constantly on the road, with his friends or brothers rather, MaPecca felt he needed more than just a life of entertaining masses, he sought to settle down. Women’s knees always jellied in his presence, they always melted whenever they saw his smile. As if fate had heard his silent whispers, Cupid struck him with his love’s arrow and he married a woman, whom he believed would love him till the end of time. But alas the sisters of fate, with their enchanted tapestry and all seeing eye, wove a different path with their shrivelled fingers for MaPecca and his wife Jacqueline Chesigelenaso (Banda) Moyo. Married for more than a decade and with three children, the union has evidently collapsed, with mention of last week’s incident, where MaPecca was shot and hospitalised by his alleged wife’s lover Oricious “Oros” Moyo, a well-known malayitsha who owns and runs a fast food outlet in the city. He last story from MaPecca MaPecca suspected his wife was having an affair and decided to investigate. He said on the night he was shot, he trailed his wife from work, where she is ironically employed by her alleged lover. He said he followed her to where she met with her alleged lover in Emakhandeni suburb, where they then drove to his house in Emganwini. Reiterating the series of events as they unfolded he said the day before he caught them his quest was unsuccessful, as he lost track of her in traffic along the way. “On Monday I tried to tail her but lost her along the way. It was then on Tuesday that fate would have it that I came face to face with the man I believed to be just her employer. She got off work between 9.30pm and 10pm and got a ride from one of her workmates husband’s car. They dropped her off at 6th Avenue, where I then assumed she would catch a kombi home to Gwabalanda but no, she got into a Cowdray Park suburb bound kombi. She dropped off in Emakhandeni near the cricket club and got into a small vehicle . . . a Vista. I, in the company of a friend in a vehicle we had hired to tail them, and then followed the car to Emganwini, where I was shot,” said MaPecca. He said once the vehicle in which his wife and alleged lover drew to a stop by the house, he asked his friends to park at a safe location and took it upon himself to confront them. “I don’t want to lie, I was agitated and my nerves were wrecking me. I needed some sort of closure and this was it. I walked up to the car on the passenger side, where my wife was seated. I knocked on the window, which she didn’t open, then I decided to open the rear passenger door. There I then asked him (Oricious) what he was doing with my wife. I turned the question to my wife as well and they were both mum. “Needing closure I knelt on the ground to ask them what was going on and that is the precise moment he turned the ignition of the car on and shifted the gear . . . I can’t remember to what level but I remember grabbing the door and clinging on it, as they tried to drive off. After that all I remember is hearing a loud crack and a sharp pain in my abdomen, before I fell to the ground. They then sped off and left me for dead,” said MaPecca. After being hospitalised MaPecca says he was shocked to wake up to the police accusing him and wanting to charge him with a crime (attempted robbery), which he says is a misconception, composed by his wife’s lover to hide the crime. In this whole complicated scenario, where is the wife? Lying low, perhaps waiting for the dust to settle and has been barred not by family but MaPecca from visiting him in hospital.

A salute 4 a hero

Botswana will hold a national holiday in honour of Isaac Makwala if he wins 200m gold at the World Championships. Makwala, whose exploits in London have been a major talking point this week, races in the final later on Thursday. On Tuesday he was barred from the 400m final, as officials tried to halt a "very virulent" norovirus outbreak. But he returned and progressed from an individual 200m time trial on Wednesday - he was quarantined for Monday's heats - and celebrated by doing press-ups. The 30-year-old, who said he is "still running with a broken heart" will be going up against South Africa's Wayde van Niekerk, who on Tuesday dominated the 400m race for which Makwala said he had been training.

Wednesday, 9 August 2017

Athletics' governing body has defended its decision to deny a World Championship medal favourite entry to London Stadium amid attempts to control a "very virulent" norovirus outbreak. Botswana's Isaac Makwala, 30, had hoped to run in Tuesday's 400m final, but was barred from competing. His country's Olympic boss, Falcon Sedimo, said that was "disturbing". But the IAAF said it was under instruction to quarantine athletes who showed symptoms of the virus. It acknowledged Makwala's absence was "a sad case" but said its medical staff examined the athlete and notes taken by a doctor showed he had been vomiting over an 18-hour period. Pam Venning, head of medical at the IAAF, told BBC Sport: "I have to trust my doctors. My role is to ensure the healthcare of all the athletes here and it's a very infectious and very virulent disease." Makwala had been considered the main threat to Olympic champion and world record holder Wayde van Niekerk, who retained his world title by winning Tuesday's race.

GIROUD WANTED BY LYON WITH LACAZETTE SWAP

Lyon have begun talks with Arsenal over an exchange between Olivier Giroud and Alexandre Lacazette, Le10 Sport say.
Lacazette was set to join Atletico Madrid, but their transfer ban has ended the possibility, and Arsenal are hopeful of capitalising on it and snapping up their long-term target. Giroud is being pursued by West Ham, but a move back to France may be more alluring as Lyon are hoping to add him to part of the deal.

Grenfell Tower on fire

More than 50 are in hospital after a huge fire raged through the night at a west London tower block, a fire chief says. Eyewitnesses described people trapped in the burning Grenfell Tower, in north Kensington, screaming for help and yelling for their children to be saved.
Firefighters rescued "large numbers", but London Mayor Sadiq Khan said "a lot" of people were unaccounted for. The BBC’s Andy Moore said the whole 24-storey block had been alight and there were fears the building might collapse. London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton said there had been “a number of fatalities” but she could not say how many because of the “size and complexity” of the building.
Paul Munakr, who lives on the seventh floor, managed to escape. “As I was going down the stairs, there were firefighters, truly amazing firefighters that were actually going upstairs, to the fire, trying to get as many people out the building as possible,” he told the BBC. He said he was alerted to the fire not by fire alarms but by people on the street below, shouting “don’t jump, don’t jump”. “Now, honestly I don’t know for certain if people jumped off the building to get away from the fire, but the main thing for me with this incident is the fact that the fire alarms didn’t go off in the building,” he said.

Theresa May refuses to quit despite hung parliament

By Nqobile Mafu Theresa May is refusing to quit as Prime Minister despite her disastrous election night as the UK voted for a hung parliament. Mrs May’s decision to call a snap election backfired in spectacular fashion as she lost the Conservatives’ majority in the House of Commons as Labour made significant gains. Mrs May is now scrambling to try and form a government, potentially with the help of the Democratic Unionist Party and while the DUP has signalled a willingness to do a deal its leader Arlene Foster has expressed doubts that the Prime Minister can "survive".The prime minister has said the country needs stability after the inconclusive election result and the BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg said Mrs May intended to try and govern on the basis that her party had won the largest number of votes and seats. while Jeremy Corbyn also says he is "ready to serve". Mr Corbyn, speaking after being re-elected in Islington North, said it was time for Mrs May to "make way" for a government that would be "truly representative of the people of this country". and is calling for the prime minister to resign so that he can be given a chance and prove that his capable to be the Labour leader.

Cheick Tiote dies at the age of 30

Former Newcastle midfielder Cheick Tiote has died at the age of 30 after collapsing during a training session in China. Ivory Coast international Tiote moved to China in February to play for second division side Beijing Enterprises and he was training with his club when he collapsed.
Newcastle United and manager Rafa Benitez led the tributes after the news that Cheick Tiote had died. Tiote left St James' Park last February to join Beijing Enterprises, and he was training with the second division club when he collapsed on Monday morning. Benitez said: "It is with great sadness that I have this afternoon learned of Cheick's death. "In the all the time that I have known him, he was a true professional, dedicated, talented, and above all, a great man. Our hearts go out to his family and friends at such a sad time."
Ariana Grande is expected to raise more than £2 million for the victims of the Manchester terror attack with her One Love benefit concert.
Early estimates showed more than £2 million had been raised for the victims of the terror attack at the American singer's Manchester concert less than two weeks ago. All the artists performed on Sunday at Old Trafford for free and Live Nation has underwritten the cost of the event. The line up of the concert was amazing with the likes of Robbie Williams and Take That. Grande later joined a choir from Parrs Wood High School on stage, who sang their own version of her song, My Everything, it was an emotional moment.Ariana Grande consoles a 12-year-old schoolgirl as they sing together during Manchester concert performance watched by 14million people before she welcomed her boyfriend Mac Miller on to the stage saying "Tonight is all about love, am I right?"
The pair danced together as they performed their 2013 collaboration The Way and Miller's track Dang! British singer Marcus Mumford held a moment of silence before performing at the Manchester benefit concert.

Englandxit and dumped by Iceland

Gary Lineker labelled England's shocking 2-1 defeat by Iceland as “the worst defeat in our history” as Roy Hodgson's side crashed out of Euro 2016, prompting the manager to resign minutes after the full-time whistle. Playing a country which boasts a population of little over 320,000 people, England were expected to cruise past Iceland and set-up a Euro 2016 quarter-final clash against tournament hosts France, but it wasn’t to be. England’s early lead through a Wayne Rooney penalty was immediately cancelled out by Ragnar Sigurdsson, with the defence failing to deal with a trademark Icelandic long throw, and just 12 minutes later the so-called minnows were in front through Kolbeinn Sigthorsson's shot that threaded its way under Joe Hart’s arm and across the line. Iceland's players, including the 33-year-old ex-Rotherham defender Kari Arnason, cannot claim to have superior skills. This was not an example of England being outpassed - they had 68 per cent of the possession. Even the familiar excuse of wilting in the summer sun was rendered absurd by the identity of their opponents.
Instead it was organisation that was England's enemy, in particular when conceding the early equaliser from a long throw. Even Hodgson himself might wonder how he ended up with Gary Cahill as a makeshift target-man with no fewer than four forwards - Marcus Rashford, Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane and Daniel Sturridge - attempting to play off him.

Sixty ambulances attended the incident and those wounded are now being treated at six hospitals around the city. The explosion occurred shortly after Ariana Grande left the stage at the arena - the city's largest indoor venue with a concert capacity of around 21,000. Grande - a 23-year-old American TV teen actress-turned-singer - has a strong following among teenage girls and children. She tweeted: "broken. from the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don't have words." Home Secretary Amber Rudd said it was "a barbaric attack, deliberately targeting some of the most vulnerable".
