As a starter, you may take half a bulb instead of one bulb and gradually increase it to one bulb.

THE AFTERMATH OF #ENDSARS PROTESTS: HOW HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF

 

*“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable”(John F. Kennedy).*

For the first time in my life, I have come to accept without doubt that power lies in the hands of the masses. And that was evident in the recent ugly events in Nigeria, following the youths #ENDSARS peaceful protests, and its aftermath.

Never in history has Nigeria as one united nation, but divided into Continue reading “THE AFTERMATH OF #ENDSARS PROTESTS: HOW HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF”

*NIGERIA AT 60: ARE THE GODS TO BLAME FOR ITS WOES?*

According to a popular African saying, “A man who does not know where the rain began to beat him cannot say where he dried his body.” Unarguably, in the words of the renowned African writer, Chinua Achebe, “the rain that beat us as Africans began over four hundred years ago, from the ‘discovery’ of Africa by Europe, through the transatlantic slave trade, to the Berlin Conference of 1885…”(THERE WAS A COUNTRY).

But much may argue that the rain was a forceful rain that came through guns Continue reading “*NIGERIA AT 60: ARE THE GODS TO BLAME FOR ITS WOES?*”

INDECENT DRESSING by Israel GodsPower ANAWEOKHAI

What is INDECENT DRESSING?.

A 22-year-old lady who wants to remain an anonymous, walked up to me in my office one sunny afternoon. She asked me, “Father, I hope I’m well-dressed. I’m asking because last Sunday you preached against indecent dressing.” I looked straight her eyeballs. Immediately, I sensed the discomfort that overwhelmed her. Honestly, I was not at a loss as to what to respond. But I was surprise that she dressed indecently to my office Continue reading “INDECENT DRESSING by Israel GodsPower ANAWEOKHAI”

KEY TO RESISTING DISTRACTIONS

“We distract to attract, and we attract to distract” (Israel G. Anaweokhai)

To begin, we must first acknowledge that there is a term called ‘distraction.’ And by that, distraction is a reality. The word distraction is a borrowed word. Etymologically, it is from the middle French distraction , from Latin distractio (cf. En dictionary).

It is important to know that there are two sides to distraction. Let us classify the two sides as positive and Continue reading “KEY TO RESISTING DISTRACTIONS”

Atiku and Buhari and The Space In The Middle

Atiku and Buhari and The Space In The Middle: In the hearts of every young man and woman reading this, who mean well for our country; in the hearts of men and women devoid of sentiments: tribes, religion and selfish gains — We not only have a clear idea of the Nigeria of our dream, but more importantly the leaders that will make that dream a reality.

We know in all sincerity that Buhari does not only represent the impossibility of that dream coming to pass but the possibility that with him we may not even be alive in the first place to even dream. He is like the thief at the left hand. To some, he is not just the thief, he is the “Bad” thief.

THE KISS OF THE MARRIED WOMAN THAT EVENTUALLY SCATTERED MUGABE’S KINGDOM. A LESSON FOR ALL MEN. by Ata Ikiddeh

Now, it’s difficult to piece together what is going to become of Zimbabwe after now, however history gives us a peek at the key actors in the drama currently playing out.

Now, this is the story you dont’t know.

Mugabe the deposed President of Zimbabwe, Constantine Chiwenga the Head of the Zimbabwean Military and Mnangagwa the sacked Vice President of Zimbabwe are all friends, very good friends, they are comrades.
The three men were in their 20’s when they entered the bushes and took part in the liberation struggle to free Zimbabwe from white rule. Mugabe who was initially the Sect General of ZANU PF, became the head of state, the other two men were equally given plum positions of power and have continued as the 3 musketeers presiding over the destiny of Zimbabwe for 37 years.
Sometime in the 90’s – Mugabe, the first musketeer fell in love with his personal secretary who happened to be another man’s wife at the time, the lady’s name was Grace and she became his mistress. While Mugabe was still married Grace had children for him. In 1996 they became man and wife after the death of Mugabe’s first spouse.

 




But Grace was no ordinary mistress turned wife, she was not ready to take a backseat, she turned herself into Mugabe’s political confidant, she used the bed and made her way to the very centre of Zimbabwean politics straining the relationship between Mugabe and his two comrades.

 

 
Mnangagwa the 2nd musketeer after many years of loyalty became Mugabe’s Vice President in 2014, paving the way for his eventual hold on power should Mugabe retire, resign or die. But Grace had other ideas she wangled her way into ZANU PF’s politburo and began her move to take out Mnangagwa and take power from her ailing husband.

 

In August 2017 Mnangagwa accused certain persons in the party of trying to poison him and made references to Grace. This didn’t go down well with Mugabe, how could anyone accuse his beautiful harmless Rose flower. What Mugabe forgot was that boys are allowed to fight but the brotherhood must stay strong and united. In a move that shocked everyone (but didn’t shock his beloved Grace) , he removed Mnangagwa from the position of Vice President, Mnangagwa not sure of what Grace will do to him fled to South Africa.

 

Now, in comes the 3rd musketeer Chiwenga Head of the Zimbabwaean military, a friend and brother of both Mugabe and Mnangagwa, “this is all the fault of one woman”, he is probably thinking in his mind, ” we were one until this woman came. I trust Mnangagwa to takeover, I don’t know this woman; by the way, where was she when we were sleeping in the bushes before the liberation”.
Chiwenga sends a warning to Mugabe advising him to put his house in order, the first time he has ever spoken this way to his senior comrade. Thinking Mugabe will take the signal, call him, negotiate and talk things over a cup of tea. NO! Mugabe does the exact opposite, he sends his Minister of Information to tell the Army General to stay out of State matters, Mugabe then finalises plans to sack Chiwenga. The military chief at this point knows his brother and comrade in arms has drunk deep from the strange woman’s bosom, it’s not him speaking anymore, so he rolls out his tanks early this morning. He’s therefore right when he says,”this is not a coup” ; when you really look at it, 3 friends have only fallen out over the ambitions of a woman.

 

Latest reportś say Mnangagwa the 2nd Musketeer is on his way back from South Africa, i’ve just seen a report he’s been installed interim President. The 1st Musketter Mugabe is under house arrest. The 3rd Musketter is in the saddle promising calm and quick elections. The 3 men have held Zimbabwe under lock and key for 37yrs, this is nothing but a change of baton. Zimbabwe needs a real revolution out of the hands of the veterans of the liberation struggle. In the 21st century Zimbabwe is the frozen out Animal Farm in George Orwells celebrated work.

 

Meanwhile the woman Grace, who started the whole katakata, I hear has fled the country leaving her beloved husband who sacrificed everything to face an uncertain fate. 16 million Zimbabweans could not remove Mugabe but a woman did. Mama was always right when she always told me, “son – be careful who you fall in love with and eventually marry”.
A lesson to all men.
