Mike Ocquaye, Ghana’s former deputy speaker of Parliament, warns that the traditional family system in Africa is under threat from gay promoters from the West.

Ocquaye spoke at an antigay forum in Accra saying, “Indeed the family is under satanic attack and we should take great care to protect it.”

He said, “we consider this an abomination. We don’t want a mustache man marrying another bearded man and it is the right of the children to call a man father and a woman mother.” He added, “Children brought up in the other way will become what we call miscreants.”

Mike Ocquaye, who is also a clergyman, said, “We Africans have certain values and our friends who want to remain our friends in the Western world must respect our values.”

He charged that the family system in the Western world is vanishing because it has been engulfed by homosexuality.

DOJ Freezes Over Half Billion in Loot From Ex-Nigerian Dictator Gen. Sani Abacha

DOJ Freezes Over Half Billion in Loot From Ex-Nigerian Dictator Gen. Sani Abacha

The Department of Justice has frozen more than $458 million hidden by former Nigerian military dictator Gen. Sani Abacha in France and the Channel Islands, in one of the largest civil forfeitures case ever brought against a foreign leader by the United States.

The Justice Department is also seeking forfeiture of an additional $100 million suspected of being held in four investment portfolios and three bank accounts in the United Kingdom, including the British Virgin Islands, NBC News reports.

According to the complaint filed in federal court in Washington D.C., Gen. Sani Abacha, his sons and other conspirators allegedly transferred billions out of Nigeria during the 1990s. Some of that money was allegedly taken from the Central Bank of Nigeria through a series of “security votes” letters and then used to buy millions of U.S. dollar-denominated Nigerian bonds.

Some of those billions allegedly were taken from the Central Bank of Nigeria on national security grounds through a series of “security votes” letters, then used to buy hundreds of millions of U.S. dollar-denominated Nigerian bonds.

The complaint said, “These bonds generated tens of millions of dollars in interest paid through Citibank in New York and guaranteed by the United States. In effect the conspirators lent money stolen from Nigeria back to Nigeria with zero risk and at an enormous profit.”

In addition to Citibank, Chase Manhattan Bank, Barclays Bank and JP Morgan Chase are among the financial institutions used in Gen. Sani Abacha’s schemes.

Abacha served as Nigerian president as a result of a military coup from 1993 to his death in 1998. His son, Mohammed Sani Abacha, who is named in the complaint still lives in Nigeria. The Nigerian Supreme Court ordered his arrest to face theft charges. Gen Abacha’s other son, Ibrahim Sani Abacha died in a plane crash in 1996.

Mass Grave Found in Bentiu as Fighting Continues in South Sudan

Mass Grave Found in Bentiu as Fighting Continues in South Sudan

The United Nations humanitarian chief Toby Lanzer told reporters that there is “absolutely no doubt in my mind that we’re into the thousands” of dead in South Sudan, the Daily Star reports. Aid workers said the official death toll nationwide in the young nation is 500, but the number is feared to be much higher.

The AFP said witnesses recounted the wave of violence and atrocities, including an orchestrated campaign of ethnic mass killings and rape.

UN rights chief Navi Pillay said that a mass grave, with 75 bodies, was found in the rebel-held town of Bentiu. He also said there are “reportedly at least two other mass graves” in the capital city of Juba.

The discoveries come after more than a week of escalating fighting between troops loyal to President Salva Kiir and his rival Riek Machar, a former vice president who was fired in July. Machar’s troops were driven from Bor on Tuesday, but they are still in control of Bentiu, the capital of the oil-producing state of Unity.

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela Says Ex-Husband Nelson Mandela Still Unable to Speak

Former South African president Nelson Mandela is still in “quite ill,” his ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela told South Africa’s Sunday Independent newspaper. She dismissed speculation that the anti-apartheid leader was on life support.

Nelson Mandela returned home in September after nearly three months in a hospital with a recurring lung infection. His condition has been characterized as critical and sometimes unstable, by the South African government.

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela said Mandela is no longer talking “because of all the tubes in his mouth to clear [fluid from] his lungs.” She also said “He can’t actually articulate anything… He communicates with the face, you see. But the doctors have told us they hope to recover his voice.”

Ms. Madikizela-Mandela added, “I have heard this nonsense that he is on life support – he is not.” “It is difficult for him. He remains very sensitive to any germs, so he has to be kept literally sterile. The bedroom there is like an ICU [intensive care unit] ward.”

Nelson Mandela’s home in a suburb of Johannesburg has been specially adapted for his care, where he is receiving intensive care.

Germany gets its first black federal lawmaker after Senegal-born chemist Karamba Diaby was elected to Parliament from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative party.

There were no black lawmakers in the German Parliament, despite more than 500,000 people of African origin believed to be living in Germany.

On his historic win, Karamba Diaby said, “my election into the German Parliament is of historical importance.” Diaby, who moved to the city of Halle in 1986 after being awarded a scholarship to study in communist East Germany, gained German citizenship in 2001.

Diaby will promote equal opportunities in education, saying, “Every child born in Germany should have the chance to be successful in school regardless of their social background or the income of their parents.”

I hope he will fare better than Italy’s first black cabinet minister Cecile Kyenge, who has been subjected to despicable racist rhetoric over her stance on immigration.

 

Desmond Tutu Begs Mandela Family to End Squabble as “It’s Almost Like Spitting in His Face”

The infighting in the Mandela family as the patriarch lies in a hospital bed on life support is simple a disgrace. This comes as news has leaked that Nelson Mandela is also receiving dialysis as his kidneys are failing. To echo the sentiments of retired archbishop Desmond Tutu, the family of Madiba should not ‘besmirch’ his name with their squabble, which is clearly motivated by money.

‘Please, please, please may we think not only of ourselves. It’s almost like spitting in Madiba’s face,’ Tutu said in a statement released by a foundation he leads.

‘Your anguish, now, is the nation’s anguish – and the world’s. We want to embrace you, to support you, to shine our love for Madiba through you. Please may we not besmirch his name.’

Anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela is said to be “unresponsive” and “hasn’t opened his eyes in days,” as his condition shows no improvement contrary to what the South African government has been saying. CBS News reports Mandela’s family is now discussing whether to withdraw treatment, it has been claimed. There are reports that his liver and kidney functions are down 50 percent.

CBS News:  Mandela has had two recent procedures, one to repair a bleeding ulcer and another to insert a tube into his body.

We now know that Mandela went into cardiac arrest that night and had to be resuscitated. He was taken in the middle of the night in a military ambulance to Pretoria, but the vehicle broke down, and a seriously ill Mandela had to wait on the side of the highway for over 40 minutes for another one. We don’t know why it took so long for a second ambulance to arrive, but he was eventually transferred to a second vehicle in freezing winter temperatures.

“We urge South Africans to continue praying for our beloved Madiba during this period. Our hearts are with the whole family and relatives,” said President Zuma. Source

I’m not a doctor but this doesn’t sound very good at all. We continue to pray for Nelson Mandela and his family. This can’t be an easy time for them.
