Today, There are 1 out of 5 children that are currently being molested, raped, victimized in there very own homes. Many people underestimate Child Abuse but it is a crime. The United States have prompted stricter litigation on child predators and pornography. The question I pose, What rights do children have when the abuse is occurring in their own home? I believe that the United States and other countries that also find child abuse becoming an epidemic, should have more awareness...

In mid-April this year, we woke up to the heart-breaking news that over 200 girls were taken hostage from a secondary school at Chibok, Borno state, North-Eastern Nigeria. Although, this was one in the series of the stories of insurgency in Nigeria, things took a new turn. A month after the awful event, it became global news after much protesting and campaigning-including the popular #BringBackOurGirls on Twitter. Every news media ran a story or more on the unfortunate happening, c...


Today I’ve chosen to write to you about technology, as it has been around us for some time already and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to fade away, even the contrary: continuous development is taking place. I would like to talk to you about the Internet of Things (IoT). It sounds like a network, most like the internet but with some extra features. Well, IoT is here and it is gaining its place in our lives, or in the lives of some of us. IoT is, indeed, more complex than...

Poppies Humanity is a field of poppies. Tepid summers pluck seedlings and rest them in sodden plains. Each bursts roots thrusting into soil of eons past. Folding, bending, twisting and contorting… Running together like schoolchildren in the village None have foreseen the winter to come. Frigid winds strike with savage intentions. Acrid, adverse, and ablaze in spite… At first the seedlings hold together, but soon they desert one another. Spring arri...

That’s a very difficult question as there are so many problems that I would like to solve. At first, I thought of what discourages me most in my life and of what injustice I see. And I saw the old people around that are just disrespected and who aren’t treated fairly. It makes my heart beat fast and the feeling that I can’t take all the pain off their faces makes me grit my teeth. Then what came in my mind were the wars and violence that had been staying with us for the entir...

In my country Nigeria, there is a post-university national service requirement. During my national service at North-Central Nigeria, I worked at a secondary school (high school) with almost no basic facilities. The school had only one typewriter and two shelves (supposed to be a library) with outdated brown paper books. Over a few months with my students, I came to understand the poor quality of teaching they had been exposed to, learnt to value their learning deeply, and resolved...

Wherever you are, whatever it takes, no matter the distance, I know that one day you will get there. Today, you may fall several times and the chances of rising again seems hallow but believe you me, all will be fine in the end because the strife will not be long. The fruits of perseverance are actually more enjoyable because of the challenges one would overcome. And of course once you have achieved that goal, you probably would say "Yes I did it!" Finally, never get tired of...


Examination Malpractice by learners

Examination practice has become very rampant such that learners as well as those re-writing exams are not ashamed to talk about it. It is high time somebody did something to reverse this very bad trend so that Zambian exams can become credible again. "Do away with malpractice" should be our motto because this bad trend has reduced the spirit of hard work among the learners. This latter spills over to work places and thus there is no development in general.

As an educator I have observed both advantages and disadvantages of the re-entry policy. However, there are more disadvantages than advantages. Well, the main advantage is the girl child getting back to class. Their performance will be affected, and the main disadvantage is that she may become pregnant at a very tender age followed by complications during delivery. Unfortunately she may even be infected with HIV & AIDS.........….. Whats the way to move forward for our chi...
