She was until her death, the deputy chairperson of the National Cohesion Integration Commission (NCIC). She died this morning at Aga Khan Hospital in Kenya after battling breast cancer for over 13 years. Mary's story is that of resilience.

The story of Ime Anwana; a young lady we should all be proud of

Her story was aired on NTA Newsline on Sunday March 25th 2012. A concerned citizen wrote what you are about to read after watching the programme...
A young lady, Ime Anwana, a Batch "A" corps member, was posted to serve in the NNPC depot in Niger State. She visited a friend serving at a local girls secondary secondary in the nearby village of Kaffin Koro and was told the school has no chemistry teacher.
Ime volunteered to use her free time on Friday evenings to teach chemistry to the students - free of charge. While teaching in the school she saw the sorry state of the student accommodation and took it upon upon herself to do something about it.
She raised the sum of 3.8 million naira and supervised the building of a student hostel equipped with 40 double bunk beds complete with mattresses.

How ridiculous is this report..Beyonce maybe carrying around a doll?

So according to Mediatakeout.com, Beyonce maybe carrying around a fake baby. Seriously MTO?
Here's how they are reporting it...
MediaTakeOut.com has been doing some digging...and we just uncovered some shocking evidence...and it suggest that Beyonce may be carrying around a fake baby - possible as a decoy against paparazzi. 
MediaTakeOut.com was first tipped off by dozens of readers who claimed that Bey's new 2 month old baby looked strange in recent pics...and they suspected that Bey might be carrying around a doll - instead of a 2 month old baby.
Kinda ridiculous, don't you think? Continue reading...

After performing her new hit single 'Starships' on American Idol last night, Nicki Minaj told American Idol host Ryan Seacrest that she was interested in coming back to the show...and cheekily pitched for a guest judge spot. Nicki said:

A smiling Lopez retorted: 'I don't know if there's enough room for both of us.'
