- Stamp of Authority -

Mr. Kumi is a rubber stamp maker at Accra New Town. He’s been in this business for almost 25 years. He says at first he used fire and some other materials to design the alphabets. But now he uses a computer to write the letters before he makes the stamp. Some 7 years ago he made a friend teach him how to use coral draw to design a stamp and since then he’s not gone back to the traditional style of making stamp. He says since then productivity has increased because he makes more stamps in a short time. Technology is actually helping some aspects of traditional art on Ghana.

I’m so upset, angry and just completely disgusted about this story!

An Edmond teenager faces a possible life in prison sentence after authorities say they learned about shocking crimes he allegedly committed on an African mission trip.

The suspect was volunteering at a Kenyan children’s home when he allegedly raped and molested a number of young children.

According to court records, 19-year-old Matthew Durham confessed to raping several young girls, forcing some boys to perform oral sex on him and even making other kids watch.

“This is a young man in our community that made choices to exploit children in an orphanage,” said United States Attorney Sanford Coats. “It’s a true tragedy all the way around.”

The 19-year-old suspect traveled overseas with a group called Upendo.

Upendo is an organization that assists neglected Kenyan kids by providing food, housing, clothes and religion.

While Durham volunteered to travel overseas several times over the last two years, on his last visit, the criminal complaint alleges, “Durham requested to stay at the children’s home in an ‘overflow bunk’ rather than at an offsite facility.”

During that visit, several alleged victims claimed Durham “often touched them in a sexual manner or told them to touch themselves while he watched.”

Once confronted, Durham allegedly came clean.

“A caretaker at the orphanage noticed something wasn’t right and confronted Mr. Durham. He admitted to some of the acts,” said Coats.

The affidavit continues, “The victims are believed to be both boys and girls between the ages of four and nine, at least one of whom is HIV positive.”

Prosecutors say while the alleged sex crimes were committed overseas, Durham can be held accountable for the crimes in Oklahoma.

Durham is being held without bond.

Judgement is Death!!!!!!!

I’m tired of white people.

They better lock him up over there in Kenya

NEW MUSIC: Waje ft Tiwa Savage - Onye.

Anyone who knows me knows just how much, and how hard, I stan for Nigerian women in the music industry. Not only do many of them continuously put out fresh content, but when it comes to creativity, they rarely seem to lack in that department.

In the latest collaboration between Waje and recent MTV MAMA Award winner Tiwa Savage, they take their cues from both Western and traditional Nigerian influences putting a modern spin on the 1950s housewife trope and adding some flavour to something I’m referring to as the ‘pounded yam maiden’.

The result? Lots of humour, cuteness and pretty damn good acting.

 Residents of Aduman, Nsakina etc, in the Ga West Municipality of Accra demonstrate against the deplorable roads in their communities. This demonstration is a public announcement to tell the government that motorists will not be allowed to use the road if it is not fixed. The demonstrators are also kicking against government’s initiative to share sanitary pads to girls in senior High Schools in the country. The words on the placard in the 4th photo seems to be saying exactly that "We don’t want pad. We want road."
