ICHEOKU says the European Union must not allow this barbarism to go unsolved or unanswered. A journalist blogger blown up in a car bomb because of her writings and in an European Union member country is simply unacceptable. As a result the authorities in Brussels must demand a thorough investigation or better still lead the effort to unravel the monsters behind her assassination and bring justice to them. Daphine Caruana Galizia's murder must be solved and cannot be allowed to become another statistic of journalists killed to suppress freedom of speech. May her soul remain restless and haunt her killers until they are served justice. Adieu Daph.



ICHEOKU says another lucky one that survived the abortionist's pincers from the over 360,000 unlucky ones that get flushed out each year. May God help us all have a better resolution about unwanted pregnancies.


ICHEOKU says he is a British citizen leading the effort to free the people of Biafra from the clutches of the feudalistic Fulani controlled Northern Nigeria. Now, he is missing following the raid of his country home by the Fulani Army of Northern Nigeria. ICHEOKU says President Muhammadu Buhari led Nigerian government sponsored abductions and murders is on the increase and you wonder what it will take the international community to call him to order.


ICHEOKU says from being disrespectful to the flag to being unappreciative of the services of the military to overall being anti America; NFL players must learn to check their political activism outside the stadiums. They must not kneel on our dime. ICHEOKU supports the president 1000% on this and hereby calls on every player to respect the sensibilities of the many differently opined fans who paid to watch a game and not to be made mad by their personal political agenda.


“The United States Government is strongly committed to Nigeria’s unity. Important political and economic issues affecting the Nigerian people, such as the allocation of resources, are worthwhile topics for respectful debate in a democracy. Within the context of unity, we encourage all Nigerians to support a de-escalation of tensions and peaceful resolution of grievances. The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a terrorist organization under US law.” - Russell Brooks, United States of America.




"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do." - PDJT



ICHEOKU says the Red Cross does one heck of a good job going to the assistance of the needy; so in these times of great need, occasioned by so many hurricanes, flooding and earthquake, show that you really care, donate to help the victims rebuild their wrecked lives. Remember that the Almighty rewards a cheerful giver.



"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.


"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.



ICHEOKU says once again the diminutive midget of Pyongyang has been advised to heed the resolution of the United Nations firm stand against his continuing provocations; and that the total wiping out of his North Korea is now an option should he force the hands of the United States of American military. In a statement by the Defense Secretary Jim Maddog Mattis over its latest nuclear test, the secretary said “Our commitment among the allies are ironclad. Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so.” ICHEOKU says does not really know the joker that guy has, but whatever it is will likely very soon be forced out. The world including ICHEOKU is waiting and watching.


ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to go their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide their own Biafraexit.


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.

"When two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts do blow out fire." - William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew


“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ


"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)


“I’m not that interested in material things. As long as I find a good bed that I can sleep in, that’s enough.” - Nicolas Berggruem, the homeless billionaire.

It is with heart filled with sympathy that Icheoku condoles the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, Morgan Tsvangirai, on the loss of his wife, Susan Tsvangirai! It is most regrettable that death chose to strike now when the struggle for the soul of Zimbabwe between her husband and Robert Mugabe was almost over. Death, oh why now?
That Susan was the pillar of support to her husband Morgan, throughout their marital life and especially during these last years of great struggle to free Zimbabwe from the death-grip of Robert Mugabe, was of general knowledge. As we write this obituary, our mind is racing to one conclusion, that this death has all the trappings of an assassination? Robert Mugabe and his security agencies cannot share power and will not share power; hence would go to the ends of the earth to stop the Tsvangirais' meddlesome interloping in their power-hold. Unfortunately, it is now one down with one more to go.
Icheoku says, Morgan should run to the mountains of safety for his dear life and immediately; as another truck will be crashing into him in due course if he is not poisoned before then. The ways and means of African despots is nefarious and they sometimes even kill their mothers just to maintain a hold on power. Icheoku says this is not an ordinary accident that took this affable lady's young life, no as we are fully aware of the tactics, atypical of African despots. To understand our position, please follow our trend of thought here. First, all African leaders travel to places in a protective convoy of gun-totting stern looking security kill-joys, who will not blink at squashing a life of any intruder. Second, the security agents usually close and condone-ff every intersection on the road to be travelled by the leader and sometimes such stretch of road remains closed-off until after such a visit. If these are given and accepted as informed premise, how then did this driver of the truck make contact with the vehicle carrying the Tsvangirais? Also how did the driver of the truck know exactly when to start his vehicle, drive it from a distance to timely impact and plow into the Tsvangirai's vehicle? Why was it the exact vehicle carrying the Tsvangirais that was specifically impacted amongst the convoy if they were not specifically targeted? All the corresponding coincidences are rather too many for it to be just an accidental contact of a rogue truck that took the life of Lady Tsvangirai. Icheoku says, based on what is obtainable in Africa and the road so far travelled in this analysis, Susan Tsvangirai was a victim of a state's assassination and her husband, the prime minister Morgan was also targeted, but was lucky to escape with his life.
Looking at the damage on the SUV carrying the Tsvangirais, it does not appear it was an unsurvivable accident. The pictured accident-vehicle does not look as if there was a tire-burst? Could it be that Susan was possibly not wearing her seat-belt, and was ejected from the rolled-over vehicle, crushing her skull in the process? Icheoku calls on Morgan Tsvangirai to institute a powerful probe to determine how his pillar of strength was taken away from him and so suddenly?
Our fear is that Morgan is merely a "ceremonial" prime minister without any real power, none of which Robert Mugabe has yielded. Morgan could not even secure the release of his deputy minister for agriculture Roy Bennett, who is in detention, despite a court's bail order, being tried for treason. Also currently available information has it that the magistrate who granted Mr. Bennett bail, Livingstone Chipadze has himself been arrested for not kow-towing Robert Mugabe's wishes that Bennett does not see the day-light again. The only meaningful advise from Icheoku to Morgan Tsvangirai, is to resign his office in protest against the illegitimate government of Robert Mugabe; then he can reboot his opposition for a more forceful agitation from outside the government for security purposes. Being so close to the government as a prime minister will only bring him too close for the hatchet men of Mugabe to chop off his head. Morgan Tsvangirai, please do not be a seating duck for Robert Mugabe's enforcers, as nothing in Zimbabwe as presently constituted, is worth making your kids orphans. They have already lost their mother and losing their father also might be too haranguing a trauma from which they may never fully recover from? Robert Mugabe has already killed your wife and must be regretting the shoddy job done by his henchmen in not also getting you in their flaky accident?

Susan Tsvangirai, died Friday March 6, 2009 afternoon in a "road accident" that also injured her husband Morgan. The collision occurred about 30 miles south of Harare, between 1600 hours [1400 GMT] and 1700 (about 2.00PM), on the Harare-Masvingo Road. Morgan Tsvangirai and his wife Susan were headed to their hometown of Buhera, south of the capital, from the capital Harare. As their vehicle collided head-on with a heavy truck, Susan succumbed to her injuries and died soon afterwards at the scene. Morgan was conscious and in a stable condition in a local hospital. To complete the "mafia-like hit" drama, the first visitor Morgan Tsvangirai had at his hospital bed was none other than Robert Mugabe himself? And we are talking about "The Godfather movie"! Icheoku asks, how can the trailer of a large truck suddenly and precisely swing out from nowhere, in front of the Tsvangirai's moving vehicle, sideswiped their vehicle with such a great speed that it rolled-over leaving Susan dead with her husband in hospital? It is the stuff, Hollywood movies are made of, especially if that Hollywood movie was out of Sicily-Italy? It requires the total and complete suspension of disbelief to accept such a mirage of a coincidence? Icheoku says, it does not help speculations when several "enemies" of Mugabe's Zanu-PF party have been killed in the past in such orchestrated and staged accidents?
According to one observer who raised similar doubt on the accident, "I'm skeptical about any motor vehicle accident in Zimbabwe involving an opposition figure. Robert Mugabe has a history of strange car accidents when someone lo and behold dies; -- it's sort of his modus operandi of how they get rid of people they don't like."

It is instructive to note that "car accidents" took the lives of the estranged Defense Minister Moven Mahachi in 2001, the former Employment Minister Border Gezi's in 1999 and former minister and regional governor Elliot Manyika, last year December 2008? And car accidents never saw these men while they were still in the good books of Robert Mugabe until they became "renegades"? Icheoku says, it is such a big coincidence that each of these three deemed "disagreeable" men and now Susan Tsvangirai all died in car crashes?

A full independent investigation is what is needed to get to the root of this one murder too many! Despite all the present Zimbabwe's government-kites being flown to the world as to the possible cause of the accident, from the driver of the semi-truck possibly sleeping on the wheels, to a possible tire-burst of the Tsvangirai's vehicle etc , Icheoku says, only Robert Mugabe's exit from power in Harare can solve this riddle. Until then, and as the world joins Morgan Tsvangirai to mourn the loss of his wife, Susan Tsvangirai, Icheoku wishes the Prime Minister God's protection as the vermin of Harare will surely make another attempt to stop his crusade to better the lot of the Zimbabwean people. Please accept our condolences, Mr Prime Minister and may your wife's soul find peace with the Lord! Adieu Susan Tsvangirai!

Rumours fly after Tsvangirai crash
Brian Hungwe visits the scene of Friday's car crash near Harare in which Zimbabwe's Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai was injured and his wife Susan killed.

Mr Tsvangirai's car reportedly rolled three times after the collision

A land cruiser lies on its back 24 hours after the car crash, drawing the attention of motorists.

Inside the mangled remains of the vehicle, a continuous warning sound has been hinting all day that doors are open.

Yet the keys are still in the ignition. A shattered windscreen and broken car windows tell an ugly story, as the Toyota Land cruiser rests on its roof besides the road.

Two policemen are on constant guard. Strangers are not allowed up close.

But vehicles are slowing down around the fatal scene. Curious onlookers disembark, say little, and some weep, as they catch a glimpse of the lonely miserable vehicle.

It is difficult to imagine how Mr Tsvangirai escaped relatively unscathed as the heavy vehicle rolled three times after the collision with an oncoming lorry.

One immediately feels pity for his wife Susan, his pillar of strength and mother to the couple's six children.

Questions asked

The Masvingo-Harare road is a two lane route. The place where the crash occurred is on a kilometre-long (0.6 miles) stretch of clear road, sandwiched between two commercial farmlands.

People don't want to believe it was an ordinary accident... They wanted to kill him

Harare's taxi driver

The road evidently requires rehabilitation, but calls for such repairs have fallen on deaf ears over the past years, despite horrifying fatalities involving haulage lorries, buses and ordinary cars.

As the nation ponders on the latest tragedy, many questions are being asked - and concerns are being raised over the security of government officials.

How a convoy of three vehicles, with one in the middle carrying the second most important person in the land, got involved in a car crash, is what has perplexed many people.

The oncoming lorry, which apparently belonged to a partner of the US government aid agency USAID, is thought to have crossed into the prime minister's path, sideswiping the right bumper of Mr Tsvangirai's Land Cruiser, which then rolled off the highway.

Rumours in Harare

"If you look at the circumstances surrounding the accident, they show that there is not as much security as one would have wanted, not that you can prevent an accident, but I'm sure it must give a lot of lessons about the security framework," says Dr Lovemore Madhuku, chairman of a constitutional reform pressure group.

Mr Tsvangirai flew to Botswana on Saturday, his party said

"It's very depressing, I think happening within the first three weeks of the new inclusive government. It's unfortunate that the public will find it unbelievable and that could threaten the whole framework of the new government," Dr Madhuku said.

Already, Harare is awash with rumour and speculation.

"People don't want to believe it was an ordinary accident, even if you tell them President Mugabe visited Tsvangirai in hospital hours after the crash," a taxi driver told me.

"Why did the oncoming vehicle target his vehicle, yet there are hundreds other cars that use the same road every hour, it's a busy road?" he asked. "They wanted to kill him."

At the scene of the crash, Deputy Mines Minister and MDC legislator Murisi Zwizwayi is refusing to buy into the story that the encroaching vehicle hit a pothole or hump before crossing the lane.

"Where are the potholes, even humps, here, do you see one, it's just a clear road," he said, almost throwing his hands in exasperation.

"There was a lot of talk around a pothole that is alleged to have caused the accident. It was only proper that we visit the scene. From my own assessment, there is no pothole to talk about as far as this accident is concerned," Mr Zwizwayi said.

'Huge embarrassment'

At the clinic where Mr Tsvangirai was treated, there was heavy security, state agents and armed police. It appeared like a state expression of loyalty, to avoid giving any credence to conspiracy theories.

Mr Tsvangirai lost his wife of 30 years in the crash

"From now on, security around the prime minister will be tighter, I think they will test whatever he drinks or eat first to make sure he doesn't die. It's in their interest to keep him alive now," said a senior MDC official, barred from entering the clinic after the accident.

The treatment centre was besieged by hosts of politicians across the political divide.

Inside were central bank governor Dr Gideon Gono, Defence Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa, head of central intelligence Happyton Bonyongwe, and other party deputy ministers.

"Rarely do prime ministers get involved in car accidents. Plane crashes are more understandable," said a retired army official.

"It shows lack of planning, co-ordination of close security transporting the VIPs in the convoy," he said.

He says when such a situation arises "countless reports are filed, many questions asked, and people tend to lose their jobs".

"This incident," he added, "is no exception."

An MDC insider says what makes this incident more serious, is that it is a "huge political embarrassment to the state, particularly President Mugabe that he is failing to provide adequate to his prime minister in government".

Given Mr Mugabe's demeanour, a very sad depressed face, as he walked out of the clinic, a lot of people "must be running around".

"Logic would have demanded that police escort be provided to warn other traffic... and this tragedy could have been avoided," Finance Minister Tendai Biti said, before breaking down at a party news conference.

"The authorities must understand that omission," Mr Biti added.

His tears hint at the growing level of anger and emotion within the echelons of his party. At his home in Harare, there was weeping and wailing all night, as relatives and friends tried to come to grip with the tragedy.
