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.

Why African-American women breastfeed less?

Recent figures from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that, only 62% of black babies born in the US in 2010 started breastfeeding, compared to 79% of white babies. After six months, only 36% still breastfed, compared to 52% of white babies.
According to BBC Reporte by Kate Dailey, this was always the case says Monique Sims-Harper, director of A More Excellent Way Health Improvement Organization and a spokeswoman for the California Breastfeeding Coalition. “When blacks came to this country they breastfed their babies and often their masters’ babies,” Read more here BBC News

Cameroon’s most funny man popularly known as ‘’Pa Tom opens up about his Humanitarian activisties

Hello to you my readers, I had the pleasure last week Thurday of meeting Cameroon’s most funny man called Thomas Ayuk Fotang, popularly known as ‘’Pa Tom,’’ in his widely popular Scratch Ya Eye sit-com airing on Canal 2 International television. During our heart conversation at a beautiful hotel reception in Douala, I discovered Thomas Ayuk Fotang was not only “The Funny Man” or an entertainer presenter of Top Radio and Television Programs in Cameroon, but he is also a philanthropist and  Humanitarian activist. 
In February 14th 2008 he was coronated and awarded the distinguished title “NFORKANG” meaning King of the Youth. Furthermore, he was appointment as Director of the Royal Goodwill Supportive Diplomatic Mission of CISRI-ISP Cameroun, a UN permanent observer mission, due to his volunteerism.
Today, he is the Founder and General Coordinator of Grass2grace which helps enable the very poor in Cameroon to uplift themselves, their families and their communities out of poverty. Grass2grace provide humanitarian services to the less privileged in society by providing training and community development programs through a network of locally-trained volunteers to equip the very poor in our society and their families to improve their lives via the implementation of educational, environmental, social welfare, and health care programs in economically depressed communities in Cameroon.
Through Big Earth Award for the forgotten in society, Thomas Ayuk Fotang organisation empowers individuals who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment in their field of work or community and who have contributed significantly to society’s growth. His organisation offers each year recognition to those underprivileged/forgotten people in society but who play very important roles in our communities but are often left aside. This includes people like mortuary attendants, truck pushers, very poor orphanages, taxi drivers, petit traders, primary school teachers, sand divers, fisher men, farmers etc.

What a man to reckon with and what an initiative to behold..!

So who is Pa Tom? Lets take a look at his journey to fame 

H.R.M Thomas Ayuk Fotang, popularly known Nationwide’s and beyond today as ‘’Pa Tom,’’ popped to fame from rather humble beginnings. He hails from Ewelle Village in Eyumojock Subdivision of Manyu Division in Cameroon’s South West Region.
H. R.M Thomas Ayuk Fotang was born, years ago to a polygamous home. His mother, the second of three wives was blessed with seven fruits of the womb, “Pa Tom” being the sixth. Today he is not only happily married, but heads his own family that has already been blessed with 3 gorgeous baby girls.
His passion for communication was discerned quite early on is life. Soon after graduating from high school, he was blitzed by an insistent calling to the radio where he almost immediately carved a niche for himself. The public soon discovered a budding radio presenter endowed with a “unique, stress-free and profoundly comical touch”.
Before long, the highly gifted and overwhelmingly passionate presenter wriggled upwards to affirm his place as newscaster and architect of several radio and television entertainment programs.
His first port of call was CRTV Buea where he co-presented the popular Reggae Splash anchored at the time by Sambong Denis.
Then driven by the crave for challenge, he moved to Douala where he honed his talent at another reggae music animation show, Reggae Sun Splash on FM 105 with the late McKnight Makoge.
He is holder of a distance learning certificate in radio and television presentation. In 2002, H.M. Thomas Ayuk Fotang signed a contract with the Douala – based Sweet FM Radio as a continuity announcer. He designed and introduced the programs – “Ancient Dialogue”, Afro-Diaspo, Lyrical Boom and then Sweet Bottom Belle which is presently the oldest program on the radio. He also owns the right as the creator of the widely popular Scratch Ya Eye sit-com aired on Canal 2 International television. Apparently, the limit of this entertainment imagination end only at the level of the skies as he bubbles everyday with new and innovative ideas marketable on any radio and TV station around the word.
The self-sacrificing Ayuk Thomas Fotang first debuted in the world of humanitarian activity in 2003 when the voluntarily began doing promotion work for Spirulina Food Mocroalgae with the Royal Development Corporation. The project seeks to popularize the use of the aquatic plant specie in fighting malnutrition.
His involvement in that project was an icebreaker that would fling open several doors of opportunity for the determined up and coming radio and television presenter. Only two years later, in 2005 he was appointed head of the communication unit of the Royal Goodwill Supportive Diplomatic Mission of CISRI-ISP Cameroon. The same year on October 25, he was conferred the Royal Excellence Award.
Then a turning point in his life came in February 14th 2008 when his efforts culminated in his coronation and award of the distinguished title “NFORKANG” meaning King of the Youth. That was on February 14th 2008. He had another appointment as Director of the Royal Goodwill Supportive Diplomatic Mission of CISRI-ISP Cameroun, a UN permanent observer mission, due to his volunteerism.
Apart from his natural talent as a proven entertainer, H.M. Ayuk Thomas Fotang not only stretches the limits several times everyday to make others smile, but finds time to pursue his hobbies. They include playing golf, swimming, and tourism and above all writing listening and dancing to music.
The man, a philanthropist, Humanitarian activist is also prolific as an entertainer presenter of Top Radio and Television Programs in Cameroon.

Genevieve wishes a big Happy Birthday to Omotola Via tweeter..How sweet..!!

Educational: Woman had maggots in her vagina

Posted in wpzoom Odd World on January 31, 2014 10:59 am

News of woman who had maggot in her vagina and got them removed by a doctor suddenly went viral this January and still is.
According to reports,  this woman caught STD after having unprotected sex, this STD is called the ‘sex superbug’ which had caused the growth of live maggots in her vagina.
However some other rumour emerged that, this woman was rather infected with maggots after childbirth at a government hospital in India  and that the infection was as a result of gross medical negligence of the doctors and nurses who performed the delivery after the gauze used to stop bleeding after delivery was left inside the woman by doctors.
The victim, 22-year-old, Reshma Kumar (name changed), 10 days after giving birth to a baby at a government hospital, found flesh eating maggots crawling down her legs.Alarmed at her shocking physical state, Reshma’s husband, Shamlal (name changed), immediately took her to a hospital in Hadapsar.
After examining her, the doctor revealed that a large wad of gauze, used to stop bleeding, had been left inside her vagina after giving birth.And the gauze caused a serious infection, resulting in maggot infestation. hmmmm sad story….this was however removed by the doctor who took upon. 
According to Times of India:

The gauze should be removed immediately after the bleeding stops.It is a fact that gauze invariably gets infected if it is kept for a long time,since it is a foreign body, said Dr Manda Ghorpade,head of the gynecology department in Sane Guruji Arogya Kendra in Hadapsar,where Reshma was treated.
Residents of Mundhwa,Reshma and Shamlal ,who works as a cleaner at a housekeeping company,hail from Bhadrak district in Orissa and moved to Pune two years ago.
“It was very painful.Initially,we thought it was normal to feel sore,but when I saw maggots,we were alarmed and went to the doctor straight away.The reason we did not file a complaint of medical negligence is because we are from a different state and I don’t even know any language other than Oriya.My husband does not have enough time and resources to fight the case, said Reshma”.
Any delay would have made the wound even worse and there were high chances of her contracting septicemia.We immediately removed the gauze swab and put turpentine for clear the wound of maggots,and later applied ointments.We put her on antibiotics,so that the infection gets healed quickly.It was so painful,that she was not even allowing us to touch her, added Dr Ghorpade.
Dr Shubhada Deoskar, a city based gynecologist,was shocked at the medical negligence on display.It is sad that such a thing has happened.Such a mistake is totally unacceptable.Gauze pack is one of the methods used to stop bleeding after delivery. Whenever such a pack is used,we always make a note that it has to be removed after certain period of time. When we go on the rounds,the first question we ask the resident doctors is whether the pack is removed, she said.

Hope she gets better soon enough to finally take care of her new born baby.

Gaddafi’s sex chamber was uncovered and exposed


Gaddafi’s sex chamber has been exposed, this is where he raped girls and boys uncovered. But hey he wasnt stupid and careless because he also had a fully-fitted gynecological suite where young girls were checked for STDs before being delivery to the dictator. hmmm what a story ….

                             
It is now two years since the Libya’s Colonel Gaddafi died, since then many stories have unfolded about his horrific actions to the Libyan people, but this time the worst was uncovered, read in detail the terrifying  story as explained by OLGA CRAIG and NIKKI MURFITT from the Daily mail. 

IT has been more than two years since the capture and death of Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan dictator whose reign subjected an impoverished people to four decades of murder and terror.  

When the bedraggled former leader was hauled out of a drainpipe and shot in October 2011, his death ended the bloody Nato-led civil war that had ravaged the country since the start of that year. 

The full horror of his brutality has been slow to emerge, with many Libyans still fearing retaliation by those who continue to be loyal to their late leader. But it can now be revealed that the most heartbreaking of Gaddafi’s victims include hundreds, possibly thousands of teenage girls who, throughout his 42-year reign, were beaten, raped and forced to become his sex slaves.

Many were virgins kidnapped from schools and universities and kept prisoner for years in a specially designed secret sex lair hidden within Tripoli University or his many palaces. In the 26 months since he was deposed, Gaddafi’s den – where he regularly raped girls as young as 14 – has remained locked. But today its gaudy interior, where the colonel brutalised his victims, can be seen for the first time in photographs from a hard-hitting BBC4 documentary. 

Inside the small, nondescript single-storey complex, the girls were forced to watch pornography to ‘educate’ them for their degrading treatment at the hands of Gaddafi. And even those who did manage to escape were often shunned by their deeply religious Muslim families who believed their family honour had been tainted. 

When the dictator’s body was dragged through the streets by a baying mob, just hours after he was beaten and shot in the head, the hastily convened transitional government moved swiftly to seal off the sex dungeon. They feared the full extent of Gaddafi’s debased and lewd lifestyle would horrify the Western world and cause deep embarrassment to Libya.
One of the rooms holds little more than a double bed, lit by an orange lamp. Its 1970s decor and grimy Jacuzzi – all left exactly as they were when Gaddafi last used it – give it a seedy and gloomy air. But even more chilling is the clinical gynaecological suite in an adjoining room. It was here, on two beds fitted with stirrups behind a table laden with surgical instruments, that Gaddafi’s young victims were examined to ensure they had no sexually transmittable diseases. And here they were forced to undergo abortions if they became pregnant. 

They, however, were the lucky ones. Other young victims were so badly abused that they were dumped in car parks and on waste ground, and left to die.
Gaddafi’s modus operandi was to tour schools and universities where female students were invited to his lectures.

As he spoke before his hushed audience, he would silently scan the room seeking out attractive girls. Before leaving he would pat those he had ‘selected’ on the head.
Within hours his private bodyguards would round up those chosen and kidnap them. If their families tried to keep them from Gaddafi’s clutches, they were gunned down.
One teacher at a Tripoli school recalled how the girls were all very young. ‘Some were only 14,’ she said. ‘They would simply take the girl they wanted. They had no conscience, no morals, not an iota of mercy even though she was a mere child.’

One mother, whose daughter was a student, said the community around Tripoli University lived in fear when a visit from the colonel was announced. ‘The girls he wanted would be rounded up and sent to him,’ she said. 

‘One just disappeared and they never found her again, despite her father and brothers searching for her. Another was found three months later, cut, raped and lying in the middle of a park. She had been left for dead.’

Even today, the Libyan people are afraid to speak openly about Gaddafi’s depravity, fearing reprisals from his former henchmen.

But one woman – who was repeatedly raped by the despot over seven years from the age of 15 – has anonymously spoken of how he terrorised and abused her. She had been chosen to present the colonel with a bouquet when he toured her school in his home town of Sirte on the Mediterranean coast, 350 miles east of Tripoli.

When he patted her head afterwards, in an apparently paternal gesture, she thought she had pleased the man she and her fellow Libyans were forced to call ‘the Guide’.
The next day three woman dressed in military uniform arrived telling her parents she was needed to present more flowers. Instead, she was driven at high speed to Gaddafi’s lair. Once there, he barked at his women soldiers: ‘Get her ready.’ 

The girl was stripped, given a blood test and shaved of all but her pubic hair. She was dressed in a G-string, forced into a low-cut gown and had thick make-up plastered on her face. When she was shoved into Gaddafi’s room, to her horror he was lying naked on the bed. When she tried to run out, the women soldiers grabbed her and flung her back on the bed.

She was raped repeatedly during the seven years she was held captive, eventually escaping when a door was accidentally left unlocked.
Fuelled by cocaine and alcohol – and often Viagra – Gaddafi abused her horribly. ‘I will never forget that first time, that moment,’ she says. ‘He violated my body and pierced my soul with a dagger. That blade will never come out.’ 

It took the documentary-makers months of negotiations to be allowed access to information on Gaddafi as Libya remains secretive and hide-bound by bureaucracy.
