It seems the ANC will have to persue its historical mission of emancipating the previously marginalised people of this country without a further contribution from one of its significantly important cadre of the movement, following an announcement by President Cyril Ramaphosa that she has died.

Ramaphosa confirmed on his official Twitter acccount that former National Assembly Speaker, Frene Ginwala, has sadly passed away this morning in her home.

Media report swirled two weeks ago that Ginwala, 90, had suffered a stroke, and it appears she could not respond to the medical assistance she was receiving as she succumbed to the effects of the deadly ailment.

The president expressed great sadness, but he equally waxed lyrical about the significant contribution Ginwala made throughout her activism.

“Today we mourn the passing of a formidable patriot and leader of our nation, and an internationalist to whom justice and democracy around the globe remained an impassioned objective to her last days,” Ramaphosa said about Ginwala in glowing terms.

He went further to indicate that Ginwala encapsulated the ethics conduct of such an important official during her 10 years as the speaker (1994-2004), and that she was a huge proponent for a transformative constitution.

“Ginwala epitomised the ethos and expectations of our then fledgling consititution and played an important role in building the capacity of parliament.”

He also stated that Ginwala was a giant of a special kind due to her participation in the fight against apartheid colonialism and the ushering in of the democratic dispensation.

“We have lost another giant among a special generation of leaders to whom we owe our freedom and to whom we owe our commitment to keep building the South Africa to which they devoted their all,” he concluded.

Ginwala has died at a time the liberation movement and the country as whole are faced with a multiplicity of challenges.

You could argue that despite her elderly age, as a veteran, she could still share her wisdom and possibly help to quell the tensions that exist within the party following its highly charged conference last month.

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?
