    In December 2012, a year after Anemari Jansen had first begun her regular visits to De Kock at the Kgosi Mampuru II prison (formerly Pretoria Central), the country’s most notorious assassin wrote her a letter, setting out some of the things he would like to do if or when he was ever set free (he was finally given parole on 30 January 2015). De Kock told Jansen that he wanted to live his life “with simplicity and silence and as much dignity as possible.” He added that he would like to find gainful employment to sustain himself, that he would perhaps approach the media for a job that “others wouldn’t want to do”. “The more dangerous the better, like second-by-second reporting in the vehicle right up front in the frontlines like in Libya,” De Kock wrote. De Kock told Jansen he would like to see his sons, who live overseas with his former wife, and whom he has not seen for 20 years.

  • Nigeria: Buhari - the Search for New SGF

    In spite of that, other ethnic nationalities may quietly acquiesce to the fact that the average Igbo person is enterprising, resourceful, resilient, and dynamically proactive and above all has a measure of intelligence, but sometimes in some national issues does not cap it with corresponding wisdom. It is these qualities of an average Igbo person that attract resentment from some people from other ethnic nationalities, which they see as domineering or overbearing. Thus, the widespread speculations that Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu is being tipped to become the Secretary of the Government of the Federation (SGF) during the incoming dispensation under the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has attracted a plethora of comments, mostly favourable. Although two or three other names have been mentioned, it appears that knowing Buhari and how his mind works, particularly if he wants to keep to his promises to the people of Nigeria, the odd may favour Onu.
