Resident Wants Ebola Index Case In Port Harcourt To Be Named And Hotel Quarantined

Friday, August 29, 2014 , ,

We have discussed before whether Ebola infected or suspected cases should be named, and most say for legal and ethical reasons, it may be best not to. I think I agree. Before I continue, let us know this.

FACT! Ebola does not kill all in contact with infected persons. So far, the kill rate is 50% which is still not good, but let's not spread panic. 

I don't think it's necessary to name the ECOWAS staff who is the index case of Ebola in Port Harcourt, having been in contact with Patrick Sawyer, the Nigerian index case. I hear he/she is now Ebola free, he was treated and survived, unfortunately, the doctor who treated him contracted the disease and died.

Also, reputable news sources say the ECOWAS staff is being monitored in Lagos, if so, there is no need to release his name to PH residents.

But I agree that the hotel should be closed and cleaned up.

To all residents of PH, please do stay safe. Reduce your contact with crowds and strangers, wash your hands regularly and report anyone who you know is sick.

Below is an excerpt from the resident's mail to Ladun Liadi that spurred this post, as well as the full text of a TV broadcast by Rotimi Amaehi, the governor of Rivers State.

WATCH - The Terrible Conditions In Which Nigerian Immigrants Seek Asylum in South Africa

Friday, August 29, 2014 , , ,

According to a South African immigration officer, about 1000 Nigerians besiege their office on a daily basis seeking asylum. Those who manage to get over there on temporary or fake papers never want to return despite the treatment from other South Africans and their government.

Why do Nigerians put themselves through this? I guess I shouldn't be asking this question. For millions of Nigerians, the country has failed them.

SaharaTV's crew went behind the scenes in South Africa to cover the plight of Nigerian immigrants seeking asylum under harsh conditions in Pretoria, South Africa.


Just Kendall - Kim Kardashian's Younger Sister Drops Her Famous Last Name

Friday, August 29, 2014 ,

Many people believe the Kardashian-Jenner name is enough to open doors and opportunities for those who bear it, or those related to them. Rob Kardashian's former girlfriend spoke about it last month, and now, Kendall Jenner, the 18 year old model half-sister of Kim Kardashian has dropped her last name, also saying it is a drag on her career.

Now to be known simply by her first name, "Kendall", the upcoming model reflected this on her official modeling portfolio. Kendall had always talked about her last name not helping her get jobs and how being associated with the Kardashians made people not believe in her'.

She told Teen Vogue;

People didn’t want to take a chance on me, I think because I was sort of known. They were a little bit on the fence about it. Some people might think that what I’ve done before made it easier for me to get jobs, but it was actually a disadvantage. I had to work even harder.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is the general overseer of Christ Embassy Church, along with his wife, Rev. Anita Oyakhilome. Pastor Chris is mostly based out of Nigeria and South Africa while his wife operates from the UK and Europe. This living apart has led to speculations of separation over the years. Pastor Chris even came out last June to state they were OK. [Read here]

However, according to The Cable, the dissolution of the marriage has now been filed by Rev. Anita.

The wife is seeking divorce on the grounds of “unreasonable behaviour” and “adultery”. She outlined several allegations against the pastor which cannot publish for legal reasons. The divorce case, with Suit No FD14D01650, was filed on April 9, 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, UK, on Anita’s behalf by Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors, a full-service law firm with expertise in commercial law and a strong consumer focus in family, wills and estate, personal injury law and medical negligence.

Efforts to reconcile the popular couple, whose church is one of the biggest denominations in Nigeria and has branches all over world, have failed. They have two teenage daughters, Sharon and Charlyn."

Friday, August 29, 2014 , , ,

Noiva do Cordeiro, a small town in Brazil is made up almost entirely of young women - 600 of them aged between 20 and 35. But while the residents of the village would have it no other way, it has left them with the problem of finding eligible men for dating and marriage.

Nelma Fernandes, 23, admits it's impossible for the girls to find a would-be spouse. She said:

"Here, the only men we single girls meet are either married or related to us, everyone is a cousin. I haven't kissed a man for a long time.

"We all dream of falling in love and getting married. But we like living here and don't want to have to leave the town to find a husband.

"We'd like to get to know men who would leave their own lives and come to be a part of ours. But first they need to agree to do what we say and live according to our rules."

There are several pictures of the pretty ladies on the FB Page of the little agricultural community, and proposals are already beginning to pour in from men all over the world, both single and married... LOL...
