BBC journalist, Kiki Mordi on Monday, October 7th shook the African continent with her ‘Sex for Grade’ expose which captured university lecturers in West Africa universities, particularly Ghana and Nigeria who offer to help vulnerable female students in exchange for sekz.

Over the years, lecturers in academic institutions in West Africa have been alleged to engage in sekz for grade but this type of abuse has never been proven until Kiki Mordi’s expose.

The University of Ghana has responded to the ongoing debate that female students are sexually harassed by lecturers but fail to report them out of fear inviting all past and present students who have reliable evidence of sexual harassment by lecturers to come out and prove as the school’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee begin investigations into the ‘sex for grades’ scandal.

The Chairperson of the committee, Dr Margret Ivy Amoakohene, said the investigations will not be limited to lecturers involved in the BBC documentary only.

This is what she had to say to Joy News; “Come forward if you have evidence to show that during your four years stay on the University of Ghana Campus this happened to you. “The (BBC) documentary is like the first point that we received something to work with.

The next thing is to invite people who think they have been victims in times past or they are currently being victimized to come forward. “We are going to invite persons who have encountered these two lecturers or any others to come forward,” she said on the Joy News program on Tuesday, October 8.

Dr Amoakohene further noted that the University of Ghana wants to also take the opportunity to deal drastically with the canker once and for all.

“We really want a congenial atmosphere where learning and teaching can take place without intimidation, without anybody feeling that they are violated”.

He Is Using American Military Against American People : Joe Biden Slams Donald Trump

Published

on

Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has reacted to President Donald Trump’s threat of using soldiers to stop the violent protests which erupted across cities in the United States after the death of George Floyd in police custody.

The US President made the threat in a nationally televised address in the White House Rose Garden. Trump said;

“If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.”

Though the comment was an apparent reference to the 1807 Insurrection Act which allows presidents to quell lawlessness during emergencies, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden condemned the US President’s threat via a tweet he shared.

Biden who announced in a campaign statement that he would speak on Tuesday morning in Philadelphia “on the civil unrest facing communities across America”, accused the US President of using the American military against the American people.

He tweeted;

He’s using the American military against the American people. He tear-gassed peaceful protesters and fired rubber bullets. For a photo. For our children, for the very soul of our country, we must defeat him. But I mean it when I say this: we can only do it together.

The 1807 Insurrection Act was most recently used in 1992 amid rioting in Los Angeles after another African-American man, Rodney King was beaten by police.

Bishop Mariann Budde, the leader of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington has also expressed her disapproval of Trump’s threat. She tweeted;

Tonight President [sic] just used a Bible and a church of my diocese as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus and everything that our church stands for. To do so, he sanctioned the use of tear gas by police officers in riot gear to clear the church yard.

The President did not come to pray; he did not lament the death of George Floyd or acknowledge the collective agony of people of color in our nation. He did not attempt to heal or bring calm to our troubled land.

The Bible teaches us to love God and our neighbor; that all people are beloved children of God; that we are to do justice and love kindness. The President used our sacred text as a symbol of division.

We are followers of Jesus. In no way do we support the President’s incendiary response to a wounded, grieving nation. We stand with those seeking justice for the death of George Floyd through the sacred act of peaceful protest.

Congressman Adam Smith, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee also said in a statement;

President Trump’s decision to invoke the Insurrection Act, and his inflammatory rhetoric, proves that he cannot lead us through these tumultuous times and unite the country. Instead, he has decided to rely on the use of force to address those who he views as a threat
