A Cameroonian investigative journalist, Bisong Etahoben, is reporting via Twitter the arrest of Mahamat Bichara Gnoti, a close associate of Chadian President IIdriss Déby Itno.

Mr. Gnoti was reportedly arrested on the Chadian-Sudan border with 19 SAM2 missiles he purchased from the Sudanese army meant for the Boko Haram terrorist network in northeastern Nigeria. President Idriss Deby greeting President Goodluck Jonathan in N’Djaména State House Photo

Mr. Gnoti who claimed that President Idriss Déby gave him the funds to purchase the weapons, had waved a presidential pass issued to him by Mr. Deby’s office in order to get past border guards but was stopped and searched by the guards who found the deadly weapons on him.

There has not been an official confirmation or denial either by the Chadian or the Nigerian authorities. A text message sent to the office of Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd), the National Security Adviser in Nigeria regarding Gnoti’s arrest did not receive a response, an aide said Mr. Dasuki is traveling in Mexico.

However, the arrest of Mr. Gnoti, if confirmed, will provide solid evidence that the Chadian president is largely behind the Boko Haram lightning insurgency in Nigeria’s northwest.

Mr. Derby recently swindled the Nigerian government out of millions of dollars in Nigeria’s failed attempt to negotiate the release of some 200 high school girls abducted by Boko Haram from Chibok town last April.

On September 8th President Goodluck Jonathan made a dramatic visit to N’djamena to meet with Idris Derby, Mr. Jonathan was accompanied on the trip by the former Governor of Borno State, Ali Modu Sherrif.

The visit was condemned by opposition figures and civil society groups in Nigeria as they see it as an open embrace of individuals funding Boko Haram militants.

An Australian negotiator, Stephen Davis had accused Mr. Sheriff and former Chief of Army Staff, Azubuike Ihejirika of actively funding Boko Haram.

UGANDA: TODDLER SAVAGELY BEATEN BY NANNY FROM HELL SURVIVES ORDEAL...NANNY ARRESTED LUCKY NOT TO BE IN THE HANDS OF NIGERIAN POLICE!

Tortured Baby Identified, Still Alive…Mother of Baby is Rwandese and not living with the father

Following reports that the two-year old baby seen in a video being tortured by a maid has passed on, we went down to work. And our investigations led us to the identity of the maid, her victim and her master. Read on.

The two year-old is seen terribly tortured by a maid we have ably identified as Jolly Tumuhiirwe, 22, a born of Rukungiri District. We have also identified the toddler’s father as Erick Kamanzi, a loaded staff at a reputable NGO in Kampala who released the video yesterday mid-morning.

The video captured by interior security cameras early last week at Kamanzi’s home of Naalya, reveals a breath-taking story where Tumuhiirwe is trying to feed the baby. The baby, whom we have established was sick at the time, exhibits difficulty in coping with the rough and speedy rate at which Tumuhiirwe fed her.

Tumuhiirwe then turns to the porridge and started eating it. But the tot could not contain the stuffed food down her throat. She threw up dreadfully. This invited Tumuhiirwe’s wrath. She landed a hot slap on the kid before throwing her off the sofa, her face kissing the floor. She remained there for a few seconds before Tumuhiirwe followed.

Using a rechargeable torch, she clobbered her severely. Not done, she started kicking her and stepping on her back in turns. She finally gave her the last kick which sent her silent and unable to move. Tumuhiirwe then picked the baby like by one hand and vanished in the next room.

Father Arrested

According to family sources, Kamanzi last week came home and found some bruises on the baby’s hind. He did not ask what happened but he hastily went to review the cameras which, he had taken long to monitor. This was last Saturday November 15th 2014.

What he saw is what we have relayed above and uploaded on the video herein. Raged to the marrow, Kamanzi bounced on Tumuhiirwe and clobbered her to pulp. Done with it, he turned to tend to the baby as Tumuhiirwe ran to police where, she reported an assault case against her Master Kamanzi.

The Kiwatule police swung into action, raided Kamanzi’s home and arrested him. He promptly confessed to the charge before he was dragged to cells. After cooling down, Kamanzi asked the Cops to look at what made him clobber the maid. A mere look at the video changed the cops stance and released Kamanzi.

Speaking to the investigator today, police chief spokesman CP Fred Enanga confirmed that Tumuhiirwe’s case had been taken over by the events. Reading the file number as CRB 1346/14 of Kiira Road, Enanga said Tumuhiirwe was yesterday charged under Anti-torture Act at Nakawa Court.

But Enanga hastily adds that police are contemplating on revising the charge and upgrading it to attempted murder. He said the Tumuhiirwe will re-appear in Court on December 8th 2014.

Mother of Baby is Rwandese and not living with the father

Efforts to get hints on the baby’s mother were futile as family sources maintained silence on the question.We have however established that Kamanzi is married to a beautiful Rwandese babe Angella whose reasons to stay away from her baby  remains suspect. But this is another story for another day. It is said Tumuhiirwe was at the home for only three months.

CHAZ B…WHAT THE PRESS SAID ABOUT HIM JUST BEFORE HE PASSED ON!

Standard

Sharing Life issues with Chaz B

With his distinct voice purring through Rhythm Fm’s network airwaves Monday through Fridays, you will hear, “Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life…” which is the sign-in signature of Chaz B for his soulfully refreshing programme, “Sharing Life Issues with Chaz B.” It is a daily evening programme that made Chaz B popular among massive radio listeners because of the way he maturely handles topics of discourse each day.

The programme which maintains a phone-in format is done in partnership with MTN, and anchored by Charles Bruce Chukwuma popularly known as Chaz B where different issues are discussed and efforts are made to provide solutions as much as possible. With spiritual connectivity in interacting with his radio listeners, Chaz B uses his own challenges, experiences and that of others to encourage, counsel, advice, encourage his listeners on topics ranging from romance, marriage, family issues, domestic violence, health, dating, self esteem, business development and other general issues.

Callers also contribute to the topics of discourse as well. Sometimes, Chaz B co-hosts the programme along with his friends, Chike and Stephen, with the aim of touching lives through the programme. The programme has lots of good sides to it. Firstly, it is not limited to the learned. It is meant for everyone. Even if a caller speaks in pidgin English, they would still have a say. People also phone in to thank Chaz B for saving their relationship, marriage or even business because of the wise counselling or advise he gave when they called-in maybe weeks or months earlier.

On Thursdays, professionals in different fields are invited to talk on their area of specialization ranging from doctors, business development experts, business experts, entrepreneurs and so on after which phone lines are opened for the guest to answer bugging questions begging for answers from callers. Some listeners also call to clarify certain issues related to the topic discussed. Since the programme airs at 5:30pm, many people tend to use the programme to catch up in traffic. If you call-in while driving, you will be asked to call back or find somewhere to park for safety reasons.

Most would rather park because the chance of getting through again is very slim. And callers have the right to mention their names or remain anonymous to participate in the programmes. If a listener calls and needs counsel or advice considered delicate and cannot be discussed immediately on air, the caller is urged to send a text message to a particular phone number or email with the issue as the subject .

That way, he gets a prompt response. In life as we know, whatever has a good side also has some bad sides. The programme which airs at 5:30pm takes a break at 6:00pm for the news then continues at 6:15pm. In reality, this may cause a sort of disconnect with the listeners because they must have set their minds that it is an hour programme so it should flow. Also, sometimes callers complain that getting through to the programme is difficult hence they have to keep trying for weeks or even months. It is really annoying and embarrassing when a caller calls-in a few minutes to 6:00pm and is urged to hurriedly speak because it is almost time for the news.

Most times, such callers actually mix up or even forget what they have to say. As much as the programme has large listeners, it would be proper if the programme is aired without any break for proper connectivity with listeners. Also, calling in should be made easy for listeners to participate in the programme. Chaz B does not forget to emphasise the “God” factor in everything you do because according to him, he is not ashamed to be associated with Christ. His aim is to make a difference in people’s lives through his radio programme, “Sharing Life Issues with Chaz B.”
