Cyril Ramaphosa’s job hangs in the balance . . . he might resign or be impeached but he has still lived a life full of great experiences both politically and socially. His father was a policeman and Ramaphosa possibly chose to fight for justice because of his dad. Born on 17 November 1952 Ramaphosa became active in student politics at the University of the North (now known as the University of Limpopo). He registered to study law there in 1972. It was during this time that Ramaphosa started in the resistance movement and was detained for his actions.

 

Ramaphosa and the black mine worker

A young Ramaphosa organised anti-Apartheid rallies and was arrested in 1974 but he didn’t stop fighting for freedom. His mission was a free, democratic South Africa. After completing his degree in 1981 he joined a trade union. When the government at the time allowed black mine workers to join unions, Ramaphosa established the National Union of Mineworkers in 1982. It was during this time that he fought for a change in labour relations in the mining industry. The focus of the union was fair wage and proper working conditions for black miners.

 

Becoming a part of the leadership

Ramaphosa was elected secretary general of the ANC in July 1991 after the unbanning of liberation movements. He rose in rank when he headed the ANC delegation which negotiated the end of apartheid in November 1991. After 27 April 1994 Ramaphosa was elected as chairperson of the Constitutional Assembly and was instrumental in drafting the new Constitution. Although he was a success in Parliament he left politics and became a director of New Africa Investments Limited. Nelson Mandela can be heard in many online interviews praising Ramaphosa for his activism.

 

 

Cyril the leader of South Africa

The businessman who had close ties to politicians remained loyal to the ANC. On 18 December 2017 he became the president of the African National Congress. Popular around the world for his business acumen, Ramaphosa became the fifth democratically elected president of South Africa on 18 February 2018. Before him, Jacob Zuma was the leader of the ANC. Like many public figures Ramaphosa has always courted controversy.

 

The theft and alleged cover up of millions of dollars from his Phala Phala game farm in Limpopo two years ago has left the president’s reputation in tatters. He will learn his fate on 6 December 2022 when the National Assembly makes a decision. If the accusations are true, Ramaphosa will thereafter face an impeachment inquiry. The nation waits with bated breath for the president to address them tonight about what happens next

A 30-year-old lady has stirred reactions online after undergoing surgery to tie her fallopian tube.

The woman said in a social media video that she got the procedure because she didn’t want to become pregnant and deal with the physical and emotional scars that would result.

She wrote;

“Finally got my tubes tied!!!
Firmly in my childfree era. So proud of myself of taking control of my life and eliminating pregnancy scares and @borshun from my future🎀”

In other news, Popular Nollywood actress, Sandra Okunzuwa, shared a painful experience that made her despise men for a long time.

In a recent interview with The Sun, the screen diva discussed her traumatic experiences with men and how she overcame the trauma.

She said the experience made her hate men for a while, but she has now healed and moved on.

“Sexually abused as a kid? Yes. Mental health victim? Yes. In the society we live in, people don’t talk about mental health issues; they expect you to visit your pastor and you will be alright. As an actor, it is not easy. First, you will have to embody the life of different characters and personalities, the good, the bad and the terrible.

Despite what you are going through personally, you have to wear a smile and keep entertaining people because that is what people expect from you. I think there should be a special therapist for entertainers, because it is not easy. Giving out joy to people and lacking where to fill up from. Most people are broken; they’re carrying about baggage from the past, if you don’t talk about it so you can get help, you will keep carrying it about until it destroys you. By sharing your problems with your partner, you can get help.

Lastly, being traumatized isn’t a spiritual issue; it is a mental issue that needs a therapist. I will get married to my perfect partner someday. Before, it (the sexual abuse) kind of made me resent men, but I have healed from it and moved on. I am a lot better now.” She said.

Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu, has criticized his colleagues, Nancy Isime and Peter Okoye for their roles in the trending Netflix series, Shantytown.

Taking to his Instagram account he shared a video querying the need for Nancy Isime’s nudity and why Peter Okoye, a singer was given a movie role.

According to him, the entire production of the movie was sub par and not worth the hype.

In his words;

“So after all the Hype on Shanty Town, I finally sat down to #watch and I was so confused, it was a glorified ASABA movie, the story line was so uninteresting and a little bit more like our regular ASABA movie, only difference was it super high quality cinematography and advanced better production.
When exactly did Peter of PSQUARE turn Actor? Nancy showing unnecessary body is more confusing, Walahi some #Yoruba movies have better story line than this, Na all Hype, and this is why E go TEY before Nollywood go smell OSCAR #Awards because we not ready to be extraordinary in our story telling, imagine in 2023, we are bringing out this?
