YAHYA JAMMEH OF GAMBIA: WHY THE WEST AND AMERICA HATE HIM?

Many African leaders think they have had enough from colonial masters and wouldn't like to do anything with them. Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe and Yahya Jammeh of Gambia are two of them. They suddenly became enemies because of their views on homosexuality and the fact that the West find it hard to deal with them.  In fact the West and America pray to see an immediate end to the government of Mugabe and Jammeh.

The Western media quickly find faults against the two African leaders for human right violations and muzzling of the press, but gross human right violations are daily witnessed   in Advanced Countries than Africa. Due to poverty, Advanced Countries use aid as a weapon against Africa, as they threaten leaders to accept homosexuality and all their immoralities which have destroyed their community. Any strong African leader is seen as a threat and the only way they think could subdue them, is to dominate the leaders with unfriendly political issues.

Mugabe is on the list as one of the most hated leaders in Africa, followed by Yahya Jammeh. In 2008, Jammeh gave an ultimatum to gays and lesbians to leave his country, saying he would "cut off the head" of any homosexual found in the nation. Two years later the European Union cancelled €22 million (HK$236 million) of aid because of concerns over human rights and governance issues. Financial aid to Africa is a granted loan to pay back, so why this bluff?

The big question: When ever any epidemic breaks, how many people go to Africa to deal with the situation? (Thanks to those who have sacrifice their lives to help Ebola victims in Africa) Africa is a continent which has suffered a great deal. World leaders should understand the reason Africa leaders don’t trust them any longer. No one listens to the voice of an African leader; the West therefore shouldn’t expect African leaders to listen to whatever they say.

“What brought Britain in the first place to Gambia? The trade in ivory because Gambia had a lot of elephants, they ended up wiping out the elephants and turned around and started selling Africans. The British instituted slavery. The only thing they left us is unfortunately the English language,” said Jammeh. The reason he wants to drop English as official language in his country.


Gambia as a member of former British colonies shocked the Commonwealth by withdrawing from the 54-nation bloc, calling it ‘An extension of colonialism.’ People aren't sincere and far from truth. African leaders have seen their betrayal and underestimation and wouldn't like to driven like puppets on string. Many believe money is what is going to solve the problems in this world, not at all, we need to love ourselves, meaning taking the plight of others into consideration to give them the love and care they deserve. 

YVONNE MASERUMULE: HER WORLD OF FANTASY, REALITY AND INSPIRATION FROM NELSON MANDELA




ANTWERP, July 17, 2014 - Imagine a world without books, poets, authors and writers, how is it going to be? Many writers, scientists, and people from all walks of life, continue to change the world with their wisdom and philosophical ideas.
Technology is improving daily, gradually enhancing education and our environment, giving us hope for a better world in the future.

One aspiring young writer who is gradually making her presence felt in the world of literature is Yvonne Mahlape Maserumule. Born and raised at Phokoane, Limpopo, she currently lives in Acornhoek, Mpumalanga Province in South Africa.

At a very tender age, she has always been fascinated by magazines and various works of literature.  The English language rates as one of her best subjects in High School, where she especially fell in love with the literary work of Shakespeare, Stephen King, Danielle Steel and many other authors of high calibre. During her high school years her outstanding creative abilities got quickly noticed, and in her final academic year in 1992, her short story, SCHOOL DAYS, got published in Drum Magazine.

Her then Headmaster at St Mark's College (Jane Furse, South Africa), Mr Peter Anderson, was a great fan of her writing abilities and encouraged her to consider a career that would enable her to unveil and promulgate her God-given writing talent. She's currently developing a blog titled: ‘My world of fantasy and reality, in which she acknowledges, among others, the late former President of South Africa, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, who has been her inspiration. 

Yvonne also blogs on issues that are of common human interest, such as SUBSTANCE ABUSE and its impact on households. On 19th June 2014, Dr Yomi Garnett broadcast a Radio Promo celebrating the creative abilities of this young lady live from the studios of VOICEAMERICA in Phoenix, Arizona. She has recently established a strong relationship with creative people in the field of writing, such as Jeannie Faulkner Barber, Marta and Merajver Kurlat, who have been tremendously supportive of her writing career in its infant stage.

One of Yvonne's aspirations is to launch a Christian blog, through which she hopes to share the love of Christ with her current and future contacts. She is also working on a collection of short stories that she hopes to publish very soon, either in print or online. Apart from her writing career, she enjoys collaborations and involves in various volunteering projects which involve working with and aiding the impoverished, the homeless and the sick. 

One of her greatest passions is working in children ministries and teaching young ones about the love of Christ.  She is therefore hoping to enroll for courses related to Social Work in the near future, to enable her to establish a career in this field.

HOW TO SELL YOUR BOOK WITHOUT REVIEW


One of the essential advantages of book review is an author getting his or her work known to readers. It enhances and facilitates the sales of books. Unfortunately, book review doesn't come easy. There are thousands of authors who have written great books, but due to lack of review, the books are unknown. 

In the past and present there has been debate on social websites on book review, if it is right to buy review or not. Actually I'm one of those authors who wouldn't pay for a review, because it's like paying a bribe or enticing someone to write about your book. Since paid, the reviewer will be under pressure to give a good review, even though he or she might find the book not good enough.

As a new author, I've never depended on book review to sell my books, because I don't want to depend on something which is not coming. So I tried something and it worked. One of my books 'The Passion of Reggae and African Music' is selling well.

What I did was introducing the book on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook, then I provide a free sample link https://app.box.com/s/vxfhlbxoi7s00q2jzmml where readers can read or down some few pages. The strategy works. Those who find the book interesting purchased it. Since then I have been receiving my royalties regularly every month. The threshold of my royalty is $25 but I receive sometimes $34. 

If this strategy has worked for me, definitely it may work for other authors as well. One thing authors need to remember is, 'One can't put a lighted candle under a bucket, expecting it to brighten the environment. We need to find every necessary plan to sell our books.

BOOK: REGGAE AND MUSIC FANS, KNOW THE LIFE AND PASSION OF YOUR FAVOURITE MUSICIANS

Musicians are seen performing daily, travelling from country to country entertaining fans. They have a lot of fans and followers but only few people know about them. One particular music which concert attracts large audience is Reggae. 

Even though this type of music which carries a prophetic message is not heavily promoted by MTV like other music, such as R&B, pop, soul etc; Reggae has penetrated deep onto international platform.

The only way to know the mind, life and passion of a musician is to be close to them. My love for music lead me to meet some of the great musicians behind both Reggae and African music. 

In this book 'The Passion of Reggae and African Music' is interviews with some of the musicians. They are Lucky Dube, Gregory Isaacs, Anthony B, Capleton, Andrew Tosh, Julian Marley, Tutu Puoane, Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti etc.

A good product needs no publicity, yet I always try to find a way for readers to enjoy this beautiful photo illustrated book. This book is not only for Reggae fans but all music lovers. Below are free pages for readers.



WWE IS A DECEITFUL EMPIRE BUILT ON DISHONESTY, CHEAT AND BETRAYAL


Everyone has his or her favourite sports. Mine is wrestling but at times it's good to ask if it worth to watch WWE. The World Wrestling Entertainment owned and managed by Vince McMachon and family has a bad reputation often leading to conflicts with many of its past and present wrestlers.

What I've seen so far there is no honesty and truth in WWE. It is a deceitful empire built on dishonesty, cheat and betrayal by Vince McMahon and family. It is not easy to manage WWE because there is no truth and they don't want to run it in truth.

Referees are coached sometimes to favour the administration and other wrestlers, and when one fails to do 'the wrong' the management demands, he faces instant dismissal with the words "You are fired." In the name of 'It's good for business' there is hatred and discrimination in WWE.

Daniel Bryan is one of the greatest wrestlers in WWE. He has defeated John Cena, Kane, Randy Orton and Triple H, yet the management out of jealousy has failed to acknowledge and recognize Daniel as the "Face of WWE." Under the instructions of Triple H and her wife, Kane tried to end Daniel Bryan's career couple of weeks ago.

How can WWE fans continue to have faith in the sports when the whole WWE is under a bunch of tricksters and cunning liars? The cunning Vince McMahon left nothing good for his daughter and son-in-law to follow but lies, cheat, dishonesty and betrayal.

Birds of the same feathers flock together. Vince McMahon is a liar and a cheat, therefore her daughter Stephanie McMahon inherited the same disease from her father and after marrying Triple H, he also automatically became one of the treacherous, dangerous and wicked managers in the history of WWE.

Triple H calls himself kings of kings, the game, cerebral assassin, but the coward wrestler uses a sledge hammer, while none of the great wrestlers, The Undertaker, Shaun Micheals, Stone Cold Austin, Goldberg, Hulk Hogan, Brock Lesnar, Edge, Bret Hart etc, never used any object.

When any of the wrestlers speak against the management, they get punished in a country thriving on democracy. WWE thinks the management makes the wrestlers famous and rich but one thing they forget is, without the wrestlers there wouldn't be WWE. 

I strongly believe that the controversy surrounding Vince McMahon's WWE, costs his wife Linda the senate seat despite winning the Republican Party nomination. If the managers of WWE want the public and fans to take them serious and stop calling WWE fake, then they should quit this life of dishonesty.
