Nigeria singer Omawumi tackles child abuse PDF Print E-mail

Omawumi Megbele is a Nigerian singer-songwriter, who gained attention as the 2007 runner-up on the reality TV show West Africa Idols and has subsequently won multiple awards in Nigeria.

Oscar Pistorius trial: Steenkamps 'rejected blood money' PDF Print E-mail

Athlete Oscar Pistorius offered a large cash sum to the parents of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after he killed her - but it was rejected as "blood money", a South African court has heard.

Pistorius's offer of $34,000 (£21,000) was revealed by prosecutor Gerrie Nel during his sentencing hearing.

He has been found guilty of culpable homicide, but cleared of murder.

 
Arrested and humiliated for Ebola; tested positive for cold - Story of Ghanaian student in Czech Republic PDF Print E-mail

A Ghanaian student in Czech Republic arrested, forced into a suffocating black polythene bag, wheeled away in a trolley and dumped into a bus has tested negative for ebola, the Ghana Mission in the Czech Republic has confirmed.

The student, whose identity is yet to be disclosed, was isolated for several hours in what appears to be an excruciating, thoroughly humiliating episode as Czech authorities desperately take precautionary measures against ebola.

The student was only suffering from common cold, the Health Ministry at the Czech Republic stated.

He had successfully been screened at the Czech Airport on Saturday night and allowed to go through, only to be picked up again at the train station by a man in hazard garments and taken through the dehumanizing episode.

 
The police officers fired for a kiss PDF Print E-mail

When is it OK to kiss a colleague? Two Tanzanian police officers, whose kiss was widely shared on social media, have prompted a discussion about just that - and both have also lost their jobs.

A relationship with a colleague can throw up any number of complications, but the two young police officers in the picture may not have thought it would end their careers. The photograph - taken in Kagera, north west Tanzania - shows the pair kissing whilst dressed in their work uniforms, and was considered grounds for dismissal. Residents of the country have taken to social media to voice their dismay.
