In the U.S

Is the Republican secretary of state; Brian Kemp trying to “legally” rig the Georgia gubernatorial elections?

Well,

who knows for sure?

We don’t. But, here’s what we do know: 

Georgia’s secretary of state; Brian Kemp is currently running in an election he’s technically overseeing.

In case you didn’t catch that. Brian Kemp is literally Georgia’s current Secretary of state and is still currently running for Governor in said state. He was advised to by his peers to step down

He hasn’t.

Are Journalists of color the new Raven-Symoné? Maybe, we can make a very strong convincing case. It seems like only they saw the current chaos that is American politics from a mile away.

Gabon

The president of Gabon; Ali Bongo Ondimba is a little under the weather. According to the government spokesperson the Gabonese president was hospitalised in Saudi Arabia for “exhaustion”.

Tanzania 

Zitto Kabwe has been arrested

There is reason to believe this arrest was tied to a previous press conference held by Zitto Kabwe the previous sundaybefore the arrest– concerning the conflicting record of the documented fatality rate in a clash that had taken place in the Western Kigoma province of Tanzania between herders and police officers.

  • In the press briefing Zitto Kabwe claims 100 people lost their lives in these clashes between civilians and law enforcement.
  • The police beg to differ; insisting only two policemen and two herdsmen lost their lives. However, It isn’t unusual for African leaders to under report/downplay the fatality rate of clashes with civilians in order to uphold the guise of ultimate and utmost control. 
  • Zitto Kabwe is currently the founder and only member of the Alliance of Change and Transparency (ACT) party. He is still yet to be formally charged since arrested in his house on Wednesday.

People should make sure they have deleted pornographic pictures from their phone...” On today’s episode of the government deflecting from the actual problems and using the lack of understanding –or silly ignorance–  of LGBTQ rights to fear monger people within the country.

Nigeria

Uganda

There’s a woman in Uganda solving the malaria crisis one bar soap at a time. And no Joan Nalubega isn’t a “trained” pharmacist. But that doesn’t make her all natural organic mosquito repelling homemade soap any less effective because it’s working ! 

  • Motivated by her personal experience with the disease Joan say’s she aims to signficantly reduce the impact malaria has on Uganda. 
  • Joan sells her soaps for a high mark up price to tourists and with this, subsidizes prices to the locals in the Mpigi District. that’s one Robin Hood we can get down with- here’s to black women historically always doing the damn thing !
