President Jonathan’s ‘godfather’ Edwin Clark, 86, remarries 53-year-old

It is never too late to tie the knot right? 86-year-old Ijaw leader and former Information Minister, Edwin Clark has married popular medical doctor, Abisola Sodipe Akindeko, 53, on Sunday March 17. In honour of this, two ceremonies were organised, one at his home in Apapa and the other at the bride’s home at Okupe Estate in Maryland, online reports hold.
Akindeko has reportedly lost two of her children Adeife and Akinola Sodipo-Akindeko  during an alleged robbery attempt on the convoy of Senator Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello in 2003. But five years later, Akindeko told reporters that her children were not killed by armed robbers but by hired assassins whose target was Senator Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello.“They were not armed robbers,” she said. This seemed to have been a huge story back then… Well it is good to know she has finally love again to apeace the void.

Congolese Warlord has voluntarily turned himself in

A mile stone in the history of justice was marked when the Congolese rebel leader Bosco Ntaganda turned himself in at the US embassy in Kigali, Rwanda. He asked to be sent to the International Criminal Court, where he faces charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Here is how Ntaganda looked during his first appearance before judges at the International Criminal Court in the Hague on March.

Ntaganda’s alleged crimes goes from recruiting and using child soldiers, murder, rape, sexual slavery, and ethnic persecution in eastern Congo in 2002 and 2003.

A 16-year-old boy, who was kidnapped on his way to school by rebel troops loyal to Ntaganda earlier in March 2013, told Human Rights Watch that Ntaganda had personally authorized the distribution of weapons and sent him to the front lines during the recent infighting between opposing factions of Ntaganda’s latest rebel group, the M23. Ten of his schoolmates who were also forcibly recruited died on the front lines.
The boy expressed relief about Ntaganda’s arrest, saying, “Now he can no longer come back to where I live and take me from school and take me to war.”

“The atrocities by forces under Bosco Ntaganda’s command have affected thousands of Congolese in eastern Congo for over a decade,” said Ida Sawyer, Africa researcher at Human Rights Watch. “Their voices shine a light on how deeply these abuses scarred the nation and how important Ntaganda’s expected trial is for those who have been harmed and who seek justice.”

After over a decade with various rebel groups in eastern Congo, Ntaganda was integrated into the Congolese army as a general under a 2009 peace agreement. In 2012, Ntaganda led a mutiny and helped create a new Rwanda-backed rebellion, the M23, which battled Congolese and UN troops in eastern Congo until peace talks began in December.

Chimamanda Adichie: Something Dreadful Has Happened

An Igbo Elegy on Hearing of the Passing of Professor Chinua Achebe, By Chimamanda Adichie:
Ife mee. Nnukwu ife mee. Chinua Achebe anabago. Onye edemede nke di egwu, 
onye nnukwu uche, onye obi oma. Keduzi onye anyi ga-eji eme onu? 
Keduzi onye anyi ga-eji jee mba? Keduzi onye ga-akwado anyi? Ebenebe 
egbu o! Anya mmili julu m anya. Chinua Achebe, naba no ndokwa. O 
ga-adili gi mma. Naba na ndokwa. 
Something dreadful has happened, a big event has occurred 
Chinua Achebe has commenced the transition to the great beyond, 
a big thinker, a brilliant mind, a kind soul 
Who is now going to be our reference of pride? Who speaks now for us in the contest of wills? 
Who is even going to prepare our path? 
Truly, a great misfortune has occurred. Farewell Chinua Achebe. 
Go well, your path will be smooth.
