Published

on

In this interview, Kenyan journalist, Larry Madowo, speaks to Nigerian singer, Adekunle Gold, on living with sickle cell disease and his new mission to create awareness. The Afrobeats star explains why he believes the time is now to use his voice to make a difference for those battling the condition.

About 80% of sickle cell patients are in Africa. Nigeria has the largest population of people living with the condition in the world. Around 5% of people on the planet are carriers of trait genes linked to haemoglobin diseases, primarily thalassemia and sickle-cell disease and more than 300,000 newborns with serious haemoglobin abnormalities every year.

Video: ‘History will judge you harshly’, South Africa’s far-left opposition accuses ruling ANC

Published

on

In his speech in reaction to the parliamentary coalition which brought President Cyril Ramphosa back as president, Julius Sello Malema, who  is the leader of the populist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), explained that his party’s disagreement with working with the ruling ANC is aimed at contesting “the betrayal of South Africans”

Out of the 400 seats in the recently elected National Assembly, 246 are held by the ANC and DA, sufficient for the formation of a coalition government.

“We contested because we wanted to demonstrate to South Africa that we did not agree with the marriage of convenience to consolidate the white monopoly power to dominate the economy and the means of production in South Africa. This marriage seeks to undermine the changing of property relations in South Africa. We refused to sell out, we had never done so when we were young and we are not going to do so today.

“We are going to ensure that this parliament is functional, we can reassure you that we will not fight with any bouncer, we are going to be the best opposition that is going to ensure that both you and the DA (Democratic Alliance) are healed accountable. This is not a government of national unity, this is a great partnership between the ANC and the white monopolistic party.

“History will judge you and judge you harshly!”
