Prevention of Ebola will be better than cure: It should be duly noted that, as of this date, there has been no reported, or suspected case of Ebola Virus infected person in Cameroon or among Cameroonians anywhere else. The Government of Cameroon is leaving no stone unturned to maintain this current status and protect all Cameroonians from this deadly virus.

An isolation centre has been created in the Nylon neighborhood (quartier Nylon), in the vicinity of the Douala International airport for suspected cases of Ebola that may enter Cameroon via the Douala Airport. The government strategy has also enabled the development of isolation wards in some hospitals. 
The minister revelled that 630 million CFA (about € 960,428.81) has been allocated to combat the Ebola virus if it gets into Cameroon and prevent its spread. The fund is to support the national response against the disease.

Can you believe this??!! The Safest New York City yellow taxi driver is Ghanaian…!!

Do you know New York City’s safest yellow taxi driver is a Ghanaian…??? yes he is. Meet Mr. Amoafo, father of three, is indeed New York City’s safest yellow taxi driver. The driver who was crowned the city’s safest cabbie is said to listens to soothing jazz as he dodges pedestrians, cyclists and other cars. 
Mr. Amoafo, who lives in Queens, found himself ranked highest among his peers on Tuesday for driving the longest distance without injuring passengers in crashes, and without incurring the wrath of authorities.
The Taxi and Limousine Commission, which regulates yellow taxis and other for-hire vehicles, said Mr. Amoafo had driven at least 50,000 passengers more than 190,000 miles without a blemish on his record.
The taxi commission released, for the first time on Tuesday, what it called its “Safety Honor Roll,” as a way to draw attention to safe driving. Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration aims to curtail traffic deaths as part of its so-called Vision Zero plan.
Go Ghana….!!! ;_)

The Richest Women Today – Mrs Folorunsho Alakija gives an empowering speech to Lagos university students.

The Richest Women Today – Mrs Folorunsho Alakija gave a beatiful speech to Lagos University students during the 2014 UN International Youths Day; Lagos. She said she was not previlege to have a university degree but today, she is the richest woman in the world (and I must add dethroned Oprah Winfrey in 2013). 
Her speech goes like this…
“I come from Ikorodu, Lagos state. I am married to a dashing young lawyer of 70 years of age and we have four grown up gentlemen and grandchildren. It has not been a rag to riches fairytale. It has not been an overnight phenomenon like some cases which you find here and there all over the world. For as long as I can remember, I had always wanted my own business. Hard work…am trying to tell you how I got to where I am if you want those billions. Hard work, diligence, persistence…days where you nearly gave up but I chose not to give up.” Continue…
It would have been easy to compromise but I chose not to and I stayed focus. I could have stayed a secretary as my father desired according to his plan for me but I had bigger aspirations. I dreamt big. God strengthened me and gave me wisdom. I had a passion and burning desire to succeed. Being a secretary, a banker, a fashion icon, a cooperate promoter and printer, a real estate owner, an oil magnate, that I can assure you was no easy feat. Firm belief that what is worth doing is what doing well or not doing at all. I took charge of my life with the tools I have shared with you. I chose to become born again at the age of 40. I chose to make a covenant with God that if he would bless me I would work for him all the days of my life. I chose to hold on to the cross and look up to him every step of the way. Today additional accomplishment includes a wife of almost 40 years, a mother, grandmother, ministry, counseling, outreach, NGO Rose of Sharon Foundation for widows and Author, writer, author of several inspirational books. All I say to the glory of God. So I am 63 and I am not yet done. So what is your excuse? I never went to a University and I am proud to say so because I don’t think I have done too badly. You do not have to have a University education to be able to make it so count yourselves privileged to have that education as part of the feather in your cap” she said.

South African Lawrence Maleka will no longer be the host of Star Gist show on Africa Magic TV

Well well, I am sad to see the South African Lawrence Maleka departure from Star Gist show on Africa Magic. Him and the Zimbabwean Big Brother amplified star, Vimbai Mutinhiriand have always kept us glued to the screen. 
In 2012, Lawrence auditioned for STAR GIST because he needed a new challenge and the got the part. His words: “STAR GIST is an amazing show that celebrates our own, showing that we are just as good if not better than our international counterparts. The crew is made up of a vibrant group of people that LOVE their work.” He said this was his proudest achievement so far “My first television show, I had the highest ratings for the channel”, he says.
Eventhough this has been a challenging but exciting journey for the young ambitious star, I guess it is time opting for bigger things in the USA…? right??; looking foward to seeing you hanging out with big stars and celebrities like Jay Z…etc, says Vimbai Mutinhiriand towards the end of today’s show which indeed was Lawrences’s last. 
Africa loves you Lawrence Maleka and wishing you all the best in your future plans.
