Where Are Nigeria’s Sociologists?, By ‘Tope Fasua

I recall Nigeria’s ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo ‘slagging off’ people who studied sociology and history. I was alarmed then, because even if he was right in his concern about the fact that these professions do not manufacture anything, and that Nigeria needs more scientists and engineers, a deeper understanding of our challenges as a country requires that we mainstream these subjects. Sociology enables people to understand other cultures and how cultures evolve; it just broadens the mind. We must acknowledge that a vast majority of Nigerians are of narrow minds and limited understanding of anything else apart from their immediate environments. Most Nigerians therefore indulge in a type of parochialism that places them and their ancestors at the top of the pile, and everyone else at the b...

I have not met a single person who said this is the best we can be. Our economic and development indices at independence are largely better than what we have today, but the real deal is that we were such a promising nation in 1960 that it was thought we would dominate Africa with the speed at which we were developing. It is a fitting tribute, isn’t it, that the immortal Lee Kwan Yew, the man behind the Singapore success story, saw Nigeria as a model to be emulated when his country became independent from Malaysia in 1965. If things had worked out well for Nigeria, especially if the stupendous petrodollars gushing into our treasury had been intell...

Indonesia In Flag Flap With Malaysia At Games

Indonesia has accused the Malaysian organisers of the Southeast Asian Games of negligence after the Indonesian flag was printed upside down in a souvenir guidebook. The mistake, which makes the red-and-white Indonesian flag resemble Poland’s, has caused anger in Indonesia where “shameonyoumalaysia” has become a popular hashtag on Twitter. Indonesia’s Olympic Committee chairman Erick Thohir said the mistake “shows negligence” and demanded the guidebook be withdrawn and a new version printed. “Friendship is the greatest legacy in sports, but a mistake in presenting a national identity is not justified,” he said. Indonesia appears to have taken particular offense because the guidebook was distributed to VIPs at Saturday’s opening ceremony in Kuala Lumpur for the 29th Southeast Asi...

US Company Offers To Fund Renewed Search For MH370

Relatives of passengers aboard missing flight MH370 have demanded Malaysia accept a US exploration firm's offer to take up the hunt for the aircraft, which was suspended earlier this year. No trace of the Malaysia Airlines plane, which disappeared in March 2014 with 239 people on board, was found during a lengthy deep-sea hunt in the southern Indian Ocean off western Australia, with the years-long search called off in January. US company Ocean Infinity - a seabed exploration firm with a fleet of advanced underwater search vehicles - has said it will take on the financial risk of a renewed search for the missing Malaysian airliner. Families of those on the plane when it went missing urged the Malaysian government on Friday to agree to a private-sector hunt for the flight's wreckage...

Women To Deny Airport Assassination Of Kim Jong Un’s Half Brother

Two women accused of poisoning the half brother of North Korea's ruler Kim Jong Un in an airport assassination are expected to plead not guilty in court on Friday, their lawyers said. Indonesian Siti Aisyah and Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong are suspected of smearing Kim Jong Nam's face with the banned VX nerve agent at a crowded airport terminal in Kuala Lumpur on February 13. They are due to appear at the High Court in Malaysia, where they are expected to deny the allegation. The women, who face the death penalty if convicted, say they were duped into thinking they were playing a harmless prank for a hidden-camera show. According to her lawyer Gooi Soon Seong, Aisyah, 25, was recruited in early January by a North Korean man, known as James, to star in his video prank shows. The...

Denying Husbands Sex Is Psychological, Emotional Abuse – Lawmaker

A Malaysian lawmaker came under fire Wednesday for saying that women who deny their husbands sex were subjecting them to “psychological and emotional abuse”. Che Mohamad Zulkifly Jusoh, a Muslim MP from the ruling coalition, said during a parliamentary debate on domestic violence that husbands often suffer emotional attacks rather than physical abuse. “Even though men are said to be physically stronger than women, there are cases where wives hurt or abuse their husbands in an extreme manner,” said the lawmaker, a member of the United Malays National Organisation. “Usually, it involves wives cursing their husbands — this is emotional abuse. They insult their husbands and refuse his sexual needs. “All these are types of psychological and emotional abuse.” Marina Mahathir, a pr...

Air Zimbabwe To Sack 200 Workers

Loss-making Air Zimbabwe is cutting half of its 400 jobs as part of a restructuring plan to revive the ailing national carrier, its Chairwoman, Chipo Dyanda, said on Wednesday. Dyanda told Reuters that Air Zimbabwe would cut 200 jobs in its fourth round of layoffs in eight years. “We were overstaffed by a lot and we are also trying to weed out people without the right qualifications. “The retrenchment is meant to give space to the airline so that we can redeploy the money saved back into the company,” Dyanda said. She said Air Zimbabwe required a ratio of 45 workers per aircraft. The airline currently flies four planes which have forced Mugabe to hire private jets for his foreign travels at times. “As part of the strategic plan, we would like to get more reliable planes a...

Philippines Says Bodies Of Beheaded Civilians Found In Rebel-Held Town

The decapitated bodies of five civilians have been found in a Philippine city occupied by Islamist rebels, the military said on Wednesday. The military also warned that the number of residents killed by rebel “atrocities” could rise sharply as troops retake more ground. The discovery of the five victims among 17 other bodies retrieved would be the first evidence that civilians trapped in besieged Marawi City have been decapitated during the five-week stand by militants loyal to the Islamic State group, as some who escaped the city have previously reported. Emmanuel Garcia, a lieutenant colonel of the Western Mindanao Command, said in a text message to reporters that the five decapitated were found with the other 17 civilians killed by militants. Mr. Garcia did not respond immed...

Fighting Resumes In Marawi After Eid Ceasefire

The Philippine military has temporarily halted its offensive against fighters linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group in Marawi city to allow Muslims to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
