A teenage student kills a teacher in kenya

When the topic on morals and values is mentioned, most of the young generation finds this as a waste of time. The discipline of our children is deteriorating day by day.

When I was growing up, I grew knowing that a teacher is one of the people that should be respected no matter what. This seems like it’s no more. Students have been trying to attack the teachers anytime they try to discipline them for their bad behavior.

Some videos have been going viral showing students beating the teachers. Just recently, a student stabbed a teacher to death. He was late of attending morning classes and immediately he was told to explain why he was late, he attacked the teacher with a knife. That means the teenager had the weapon all through waiting for the right moment to attack.

Most of the parents have refrained from disciplining their children leaving the responsibility to the teachers, but with the latest incident, are teachers safe?

This has acted as a wake up call to the ministry of education which previously always supported the students. Now things have gone out of hand and it’s now sounding a warning to all students who think of harming the teachers.

Let’s keep the chat on as you leave a comment. What’s your take on this?

Son kills four family members in kenya

The shocking news of a 22 year man kill father, mother, brother and a cousin using a knife had left many with unanswered questions.

At that fateful night, the son started by killing a worker who was within the compound. This made it easy to attack other members without interruption.

How he killed all these people is still a puzzle. What could have caused such great hatred that triggered him to eliminate almost entire family?

Only her two sisters who had reported back to school escaped the horrifying ordeal.

Could he be on hard substances? It is a sad story to tell. May be this son was stressed but nobody noticed or mentally disturbed. For now, it is hard to take sides.

Let’s be keen to notice slightest behavioral changes in our children. We may prevent the worst from happening.

New Year tragedy

We were happy to usher the new year and to be part of the success. But this was never to happen to this family which has lost five members. It was so unfortunate that they were all found dead after inhaling carbon monoxide.

The father was boiling maize for sale when the rain fell. He decided to put the ‘jiko’ inside the house. Little did they know that, that would mark the end of their journey. May their souls rest in peace.

Death of Benjamin Mkapa (Tanzania)

Tanzania’s former President Benjamin Mkapa dies

Tanzania’s presidency said Benjamin Mkapa, 81, died while receiving treatment at a hospital in Dar es Salaam.

Tanzania’s former President Benjamin Mkapa, who served from 1995 to 2005, died in the early hours of Friday, President John Magufuli said in a statement.

Mkapa, 81, the East African nation’s third president who led several regional peace mediation efforts in office and afterwards, died while receiving treatment at a hospital in Dar es Salaam, Magufuli said, without giving more details.

“I will remember him for his great love for the nation, his piety, hard work and performance in building the economy,” Magfuli said.

The president declared a seven-day mourning period, during which all flags will be flown at half-mast.

“Magufuli asks all Tanzanians to remain calm, patient and united during this difficult time,” a statement from his office said.

Mkapa also served as an ambassador, minister and key official of the ruling CCM party, Magufuli said.

The former president was born in 1938 to a poor family in south-eastern Mtwara. He earned a degree in English in Uganda, after which he went on to study at Columbia University in New York.

Mkapa later worked as a journalist before being appointed the press secretary for the country’s first president Julius Nyerere.

He held several cabinet posts, such as foreign minister and information minister and also served as ambassador to the United States before he was elected president.

Mkapa had most recently attempted to mediate between Burundi’s government and opposition groups after a disputed 2015 election plunged the country into crisis, however the government repeatedly refused to take part and the talks went nowhere.
