EBOLA: Worries Over The Spread Of The Virus To Europe

Many times scientists carry out dangerous experiments when finding solutions to problems. Some try it on animals, others choose the underprivileged people. The reason Africa has been a victim to many cruelty and humanity crimes. But sometimes they forget that what goes around, comes around.

The following statement was given by ambulance personal in the biggest newspaper in Holland “De Telegraaf” and the RTL-Television. Ebola-suits are not reliable, says ambulance personal to the Dutch newspaper “De Telegraaf” and RTL- Television. Those suits which have to protect them against the catching up of the Ebola virus aren't safe.

Also the gloves are not sufficient because the are easily to be teared apart. Even the masks they are wearing are very dangerous because the only give protection against smog but most certainly not against Ebola virus they said.
According to ambulance personal a fire worker is better protected against a little bit of smoke then they are for Ebola. The ambulance personal stated also that suits in other western countries are much better...

Former Prof dr. Roel Coutinho of the Governmental Institute of Health and Environment stated: “it is absolutely impossible that we will see an Ebola epidemic in civilized countries."



Ask any European his or her date of birth, answer is given within a second, but go on further to ask, “On what day were you born?”  That’s really a tough question to answer, because a day of the week on which one is born, is less important to them.
In Africa, especially Ghana, traditionally, a day of the week determines the name given to a baby. We’ve heard often that a good name is better than riches. Many are given names of great people, but for ages Ghanaians follow the tradition of their ancestral to give names to babies.
A male child born on Sunday is given ‘Kwesi’, and ‘Akosua’ goes to a female child, because Sunday in Akan language is called ‘Kwesida.’ ‘Kodwo or Kojo’, goes to a male child born on Monday and ‘Adwoa or Ajoa’ goes to a female child, because Monday is ‘Edzuda’. ‘Kobina’ is given to a male child born on Tuesday and ‘Abena’ to a female child, because Tuesday is ‘Ebenada.’
On Wednesday, a male child is named ‘Kweku or Kwaku’ and a female child is named ‘Akua’, because Wednesday is ‘Ikuda.’ ‘Yaw’ goes to a male child born on Thursday and ‘Yaa’ goes to a female child, because Thursday is ‘Yawda, pronounced ‘Yauda.’ ‘Kofi’ goes to a male child born on Friday and ‘Afua’ goes to a female child, because Friday is ‘Ifida.’ Finally ‘Ato, Kwame or Kwamena’, goes to a male child born on Saturday and ‘Ama’ goes to a female child, because Saturday is ‘Miminda.’
In Ghana a male child can be named ‘Mensah’ because he is the third child of his parents and ‘Mansa’ to a third female child. This tradition of naming babies has inspired many foreigners, including Europeans and Americans to give them themselves traditional names corresponding with the day they were born.


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. 


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.



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.
