8 KILLED AS BOMB EXPLODES NEAR SOMALIA’S MAIN AIRPORT

MOGADISHU – At least eight people have been killed in a bomb blast in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, rescue workers say. The Islamist militant group al-Shabab said it carried out the attack.


The blast took place on a road by the entrance to a camp for the Somali Air Force which is close to the international airport yesterday.

Witnesses told the AFP news agency that a private security convoy, escorting foreigners, was passing by when the bomb exploded.
“The blast was so huge that it has destroyed most of the buildings nearby the road and vehicles passing by the area,” Hassan Nur said.

Meanwhile, the United Nations on Monday urged Somalia’s leaders to make good on their agreement for a new election timetable after repeated delays sparked a perilous political crisis.

Under a deal announced late on Sunday after talks between Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble and state leaders, parliamentary polls that should have wrapped up last year are now due to be concluded by February 25.
The election impasse set off a bitter power struggle between Roble and President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, better known as Farmajo, that threatened the stability of the fragile Horn of Africa nation.“I want to applaud the national consultative forum meeting in Mogadishu which yielded a positive result that ensures the completion of the election,” the president said on national TV.

The UN mission in Somalia said on Twitter it was “pleased” at the consensus reached during the meetings of the National Consultative Council.

But it added: “The priority now is to implement these decisions to achieve a credible and widely-accepted result by the new deadline.”

“The UN encourages Somali’s political leaders to continue in a spirit of cooperation, avoid provocations that risk new tensions or conflict and stay focused on delivering a credible electoral process quickly for the benefit of all Somalis.”
The international community had voiced fears that the election delays and the Roble-Farmajo feud could tip the country deeper into crisis as it continues to battle a deadly insurgency by Al-Shabaab jihadists. – BBC/AFP.

South Africans looking to fly with Emirates will have to wait a while longer.

Emirates has extended a ban on outbound flights from South Africa to 31 January.

Flight Centre has confirmed to eNCA that it received a notice from the Dubai-based airline indicating flights will likely resume on 1 February.

This is the airline’s fourth extension in under a month.

Air travel from the country was slapped with several bans following the discovery of the Omicron variant in November 2021.

But many countries, including EU nations, the United States, the UK, and Canada, have dropped their bans.

Vaccinate whole world to end pandemic, UN chief tells Davos

Published

vaccine shot

UN chief Antonio Guterres told the all-virtual Davos forum on Monday that the world must vaccinate everybody against COVID-19 to ensure a way out of the pandemic.

The face-to-face gathering of political and corporate power players in the Swiss Alps is online for the second year in a row due to a pandemic that shows no sign of abating.

“The last two years have demonstrated a simple but brutal truth — if we leave anyone behind, we leave everyone behind,” said the United Nations Secretary-General.

“If we fail to vaccinate every person, we give rise to new variants that spread across borders and bring daily life and economies to a grinding halt.”

Guterres said the international community needs to “confront the pandemic with equity and fairness.”

He noted that the World Health Organization unveiled a strategy last autumn to vaccinate 40 per cent of the planet’s population by the end of 2021 and 70 per cent by the middle of this year.

“We are nowhere near these targets,” Guterres told the World Economic Forum.

“Vaccination rates in high-income countries are, shamefully, seven times higher than in African countries. We need vaccine equity, now,” he added.

Guterres said pharmaceutical companies should “stand in solidarity with developing countries by sharing licenses, know-how and technology so we can all find a way out of this pandemic.”

Man Shares Heartbreak Experience After Marrying A Prostitute Who Refused To Change From Her Old Ways

Crying Blackman 3

A Nigerian man shared painful experience over his marriage to a runs girl (prostitute) who refused to change her ways despite being married and what hurt him the most is he has tried all his way to change the lady but no avail.

According to the man who pleaded anonymity, he fell in love with the lady and got married to her after she agreed to change her ways.

However, shortly after their marriage, she drifted away and went back to her runs girl lifestyle as she use to be before the msn got married to her.

He wrote:

“I fell in love with a runs girl and got married to her thinking she would change after our marriage, but believe me when I tell you I don see shege for this marriage.

This is the first time I will be opening up about my problems because I don tire. God punish love.

We met six years ago when I first had my new job. I was posted to her area and I happened to get a room in the same compound where she was living

Like play like play, from only greeting, we started sleeping over at each other’s rooms till I gave in and fell in love with this young lady.

I asked her where she usually goes to at night. And she opened up that she’s a runs girl. Out of love, I counselled her, told her I’m in love with her and she agreed to change for me.

We became lovers, planned wedding and finally got married. Just immediately after we got married , this girl started seeing other men again as she use to do before I met her.

The most annoying part is, she’s not discrete about it. She would tell me to my face – “you knew I was a runs girl before you decided to marry me, so why are you now complaining?”

She sleeps over at different men’s houses, comes back home drunk and threatens to leave me and the kids if I continue to complain about her kind of lifestyle. I am fed up. I don’t know what to do. This isn’t what I bargained for”. thanks for reading. What’s your advice to this young man?
