North Korean Elections ‘Achieve 99.97 Per Cent Turnout’

You wouldn’t get this happening anywhere in the world, except North Korea where everything is controlled, including what the State News Agency is allowed to tell us.

Last year we were told a North Korean election to elect the 687 seats in the Supreme People’s Assembly achieved 100 per cent voter turnout and 100 per cent approval of the government’s policies—today, we are being told there was 99.97 per cent turnout during yesterday’s North Korea’s election.

Pyongyang’s state news agency reported that voters were “singing and dancing” as they cast their votes in polls to elect new provincial, city and county representatives put forward by the ruling party.

All polling stations were “clad in a festive atmosphere”, according to official Korean Central News Agency.

Local elections have been held every four years since 1999. They are partly an effort to legitimise the use of “democratic” in the nation’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea – with 27,390 delegates elected in the last vote, held in July 2011.

Over the years, North Korea which is ruled by Kim Jong-un has become synonymous to propaganda and BS—if they are not claiming to have a single ‘tablet’ that cures Cancer, Ebola and HIV, they are telling us they had 100% election voters turnout.

Ama K. Abebrese loves her African print—and we have the above photo plus another of her (below), doing justice to our local print. She is back on her short hair—which some call it; the nurse style.

Nadia Buari is looking good—perhaps, motherhood is what brings out the best in some people. We didn’t really see her post baby weight.

You’re Not too SPECIAL to Be Treated As the ‘Others’!

black woman

There are some heartbreaks women cause with their own hands but since they always want to be and play the victims, they blame others for their ‘misfortune’.

If we’re very truthful to ourselves, majority of people who treated us badly and hurt us told and showed us who they really are but we shrugged it off until it became a reality. Others, we only got to know when their ‘true self’ popped out.

When you’re dating a man with three kids maybe with the same woman or different women (not married to any of them) and you never meet any of the kids when you go over to his place. After probing and he tells you ‘I only see my children when I feel like it’. Looking at the brighter side, he’s a truthful man BUT….

…That statement is a big warning but a lady who thinks she’s smart will not pay any attention or think it doesn’t really matter because after all, she’s too special to be treated same by the irresponsible sperm donor. When she gets pregnant and Mr Lover guy starts playing his usual hide and seek, then ‘madam I’m too special to be treated like the others’ starts crying foul, saying men are wicked.

I don’t see any wickedness in what he did. He told you “I’m irresponsible” (I only see my kids when I feel like it) and you ‘told’ him to bring it on; why cry? He has not shirked his responsibilities; he’s doing what he knows how to do best – donating sperms. It may sound harsh but that’s the truth.

It has been said that it’s a good idea to look at how a man treats others because there is a high probability that this is how he will be treating you in the long term. If a man is disrespectful to others, no matter how he treats you now, you will later become one of his disrespected victims.

‘I’ve Changed; I’m A Changed Person’: When People Pretend to Change and When They’ve Really Changed

Black couple first date
Black couple

He/she said she/he’s changed but he/she’s still hurting me/treating me badly/is still the person with the bad habit/attitude. I thought things will be different this time.

…And that’s how people are sucked back into bad relationships, bad business…bad everything. Just like how people can overestimate their interest in/for a relationship, the desire or faking to change can also be overestimated. Sometimes they’ve been pretending the possibility of changing over and over again down the years to family, colleagues, friends, and exes – you just don’t know it.

You’re just someone else believing in them and buying into their deceit and waiting tirelessly for the ‘never coming change’. When you ask some people why they give up their relationships and marry someone else, the first answer they give is ‘I thought he/she will change or I thought with time he/she will change’. That’s when you see people staying in boyfriend/girlfriend relationships for 5+ years with the lady (usually) mounting pressure on the man.

Not to say people don’t change (the real change), they do and they really change not necessarily because they want people to accept them but they do so to help themselves and they motivate  themselves to change. In short, they change regardless. In some cases, they have little or no interest to pursue someone they’d once been with, except maybe to apologize and move on and start afresh with someone else. Everyone else stumbles around blindly, repeating the same mistakes but when it becomes a cycle, that’s a problem.

Yvonne Nelson Says She Did Not Take Any Money From the NPP…But There is MORE

Yvonne Nelson has taken to instagram to say she did not take any money from the NPP as a support for her DumsorMustStop Vigil which took place a few months ago—contrary to allegations from the NPP camp that the actress was given 5000GHS.

Earlier today, we reported that a certain Baah Acheamfour who i s a spokesperson for the ‘Save NPP Now’ pressure group and also a communication member of NPP has disclosed that his party supported the popular #DumsorMustStop campaign financially, stating that, in fact Yvonne Nelson was GH¢5000—per John Boadu, the party’s National Organiser’s budget presentation.

Ironically, this claim is not coming from the headquarters of the ruling party, against which the protest can be said to have been staged. Rather, it is coming from people within the NPP.

Homosexuals Need Prayers? Christians with Sand in Their Heads Instead of Brains Rather Need Prayers!

Prayer

If you’re a Christian and you read how brainless your fellow Christians behave and act on the orders of a fellow man who claims God has called him, don’t you bow down your head in shame (speak the truth otherwise you’ll go to hell)?

The Christians who use their brain will condemn and the ones who don’t want to fall short of the glory of God will justify the action even if it involves eating a smelly weave and swallowing a snake believing it’s chocolate.

Considering the happenings going around these days in the Christian world….one can’t even claim Christianity with pride these days because it’s synonymous with ‘acting senseless’. I initially thought these ‘non thinkers’ are being hypnotised to act silly but that is actually not the case.

The curious case of South African pastor, Penuel Mnguni (in case you don’t know him, he’s the pastor who takes delight in abusing people by stepping on them and asking them to strip in the name of deliverance) and some of the acts and behaviours of other African and congregants begs the question: Do we have sand in our heads or brains?

How can a right thinking human being believe the snake they’re gullibly eating is a chocolate? Like how? Some Christians who claim they’re enlightened will even do worse so it’s not limited to ‘silly South Africans alone’ – it’s an African thing.

VIDEO: FAKE Muslim Busted…He Says Mohammed is From Pakistan + MORE

This is really hilarious—and what I find a little worrying is, the people saying the gentleman is not a Muslim but a Christian.

PHOTO: 50 Cent Says Times Are Hard….So See the Car He Poses By…

50 Cent
50 Cent

Look, 50 Cent is in deep shyt—but to be frank, he is far better than all of us. Dude is just playing smart and if I were him, I would do the same.

50 Cent who filed for Bankruptcy yesterday shared the above photo of him, posing by a small car—with the caption ‘Times are hard out here, lol.’

Not just that, he also said; “I’m not panicking. People love tragedy more than they love good news, no matter how you look at it. The news comes on, and it’s 90 percent tragedy. I have faith in the court systems, I know at points you gotta just relax and go through the process.”

I make decisions to do things based on the position that I’m placed in at points and if I’m consistently being made out to be a target because of my financial situation ….If people actually believe that I wouldn’t be conscious of who I am and protecting myself.”

As we reported earlier on, 50 Cent’s filing for bankruptcy looks like an attempt by 50 Cent not to pay Rick Ross’ Baby Mama-Lastonia Leviston the $5m a Manhattan Supreme Court ordered him to pay to her about three days ago in damages for uploading her s*x t*pe to the internet in 2009.

New York City to Pay $5.9 million to Family of Eric Garner

Eric Garner and his wife-Esaw

The family of Eric Garner has settled with New York City for $5.9 million to resolve the claim over Eric’s death— Eric Garner died after being put in a chokehold by New York City police last July.

Garner, a 43-year-old father of six, was accused of illegally selling cigarettes on a sidewalk when Pantaleo put him in the chokehold from behind and brought him to the ground with the help of other officers.

The video of Garner’s arrest shows him arguing with officers before Pantaleo put him in the banned maneuver. With officers holding him down, Garner pleaded with them, saying repeatedly: “I can’t breathe.”

The city medical examiner ruled Garner’s death a homicide, finding that officers compressed his neck and chest. Health problems, which included asthma and obesity, were contributing factors in his death, the medical examiner found.

Eric Garner’s death, along with the fatal shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old black man in Ferguson, Missouri, last August by a white police officer, sparked nationwide protest in United States by people outraged over police treatment of African Americans.

Top South Sudanese Model-Nykhor Paul Says ‘I’m Tired of Apologising for My Blackness’ | See Why…

Why must a person apologize constantly for her skin colour? It seems the modelling industry still has that thing against dark people…

Top South Sudanese model Nykhor Paul, 25, has taken to social media to rant about unprepared make-up artists at top fashion shows who fail to accommodate for the needs of those with darker skin tones.

The model in an Instagram post blasted the fashion industry for considering the needs of ‘white girls’ but ignoring others, forcing her to carry around her own products. It is not the first time the 5ft 11in African beauty has spoken out about the inequality she has faced, having previously said that we ‘need more models of color in the fashion world’.

In her rant, she also stated that anytime she has to work at a major  world fashion week, this make-up artists issue pop ups. Upset about this treatment she faces, Nykhor added that she’s ‘tired of complaining’ and ‘super tired’ of apologising for her blackness.

Blakk Rasta ‘Forced’ To RESIGN From Hitz FM | He Says ‘Movement Time’

Blakk Rasta

Blakk Rasta who was dragged to appear in front of Ghana’s parliament a few days ago for certain comments he made on radio, has resigned from his radio job at Hitz Fm, owned by Multimedia Group.

Blakk Rasta’s woes started when boldly called for the legalisation of marijuana on his radio show, a topic that is obviously dear to him. Whilst making his point, the outspoken artiste claimed that even our legislators, 80% to be precise, smoked the plant themselves.

Parliament got furious and summoned him before the Privileges committee of Parliament- as apparently there were no important legislations to make since everything is so rosy in Ghana; but surprisingly the very outspoken Blakk Rasta turned into a little b*tch before the committee.

LIFESTYLE GUIDE: Yard Bird in Accra – A Little Case of Style Over Substance?

Yard Bird Table Setting
Yard Bird Table Setting

Where to go in Accra for a quick and no-fuss birthday treat?  It was my partner’s birthday and being that he was travelling the next day, neither of us had time for a long, relaxing sit down meal. It was my treat and so I opted for the Spintex Road Yard Bird as it was conveniently located for both of us, and we’d been waiting for the right time to enjoy the place.

The decor is as you’d expect of an American-style diner – comfy padded seats, loud colour pops and stripes, yet with (in a nod to the “Yard Bird” name) the extra detail of contemporary diner booths with corrugated iron chicken shed roofs gave the feeling of actually being in a chicken coop.

This design has a very European sensibility and so I’d like to see Auntie Adjoa and Uncle Kwaku being seated in one of the booths, guaranteed laughs for an entire week!  Despite the booths (which seat four) being a little on the small side, the interior is stylish, spacious and comfortable – I felt that I had a good rest from the hustle outside.

Alongside the decor, it is evident that much time and effort was put into creating Yard Bird’s menu to recognise local produce and tastes.  This must be applauded; for example there are plaintain nachos and juices containing moringa.  Daily Chef’s Specials help to broaden the choice of food and showcase the Chef’s repertoire.

Cocktails start at 20GHS and milkshakes are imaginatively split into two varieties – standard milkshakes (non-alcoholic) and “Moonshine” ones which hit you with alcoholic potency.  We didn’t try these on this occasion as we both had meetings after lunch, but I’d very much like to try them when possible.  For parents, you’ll be pleased to know that children are well catered for with a pared down “Baby Bird” menu and colouring-in pictures during their meal.

87 Year Old Man Rapes 79 Year Old Bed Ridden Woman in Ghana | Case Adjourned To July 7

OMG
OMG

This 87 year old man must have some hard balls—at this age, he should have given up on sex and should not even engage in it, let alone to rape an old woman.

According to Ghana News Agency, “an Accra High Court on Thursday adjourned to July 6, the case of an eighty-seven year old man who is accused of raping a 79-year-old bed ridden woman (name withheld) at Aburi in the Eastern Region.”

The report adds that, the accused-“Kofi Aduobi, unemployed, filed a motion for bail pending trial, saying his continuous incarceration was having serious implication on his health, as he kept visiting the Tetteh Quarshie Memorial Hospital.”

As to the rape, the Police say “the victim had been bedridden for some time now, and that, on May 23, this year, at about 1400 hours, the complainants returned from town and entered the victim’s room only to see Adoubi busily having sex with the victim.
