World Bank President Jim Yong Kim Resigns

Published

on

Jim Yong Kim announced that he would step down next month, more than three years before his current term was due to expire.
The decision ends Kim’s six-year tenure and may give US President Donald Trump decisive influence over the future leadership of the 189-member global development lender.
“It has been a great honor to serve as president of this remarkable institution, full of passionate individuals dedicated to the mission of ending extreme poverty in our lifetime,” Kim, 59, said in a statement.
Kim, who became the bank’s president in 2012, is to join an unnamed firm focusing on investments in developing countries, the bank said in a statement, and will return to the board of Partners-in-Health, which he co-founded.
World Bank CEO Kristalina Georgieva will serve as interim president upon Kim’s February 1 departure, the bank said in a statement.
Under Kim’s leadership, the bank set the goal of eliminating extreme poverty by 2030 and ramped up financing.
Last year, it also won approval for a sharp $13 billion capital increase after acceding to requests from the Trump administration to curb loans to high-income countries like China.

Family raises funds to bring home Irishman who travelled to Africa to meet a lady he found online

Published

on

Relatives of the Irishman who headed to South Africa to meet a person he was chatting to online for two years, only to wander the streets of Johannesburg, have started a crowdfunding page to try to get him home.

“We’re raising £1,000 to help get Stanley Currie home from South Africa after he was mugged of all his belongings, passport and money,” Currie’s crowdfunding page on justgiving.com read.

“We need to put Stanley up in a hotel until his emergency passport can be got and we get him home as soon as possible (sic).

“He has been walking the streets of South Africa for a week with no food or water and is currently receiving medical care,” the page read.

By January 8 2019, more than £1,164 had been donated by 48 sponsors.

The 66-year-old was reported missing after no one heard from him following his departure from his Dublin home on December 28 2018, when he said he was headed for South Africa.

His brother, Robert, took to social media to locate him.

“He hadn’t booked any accommodation over there [and] was carrying a large amount of cash. He suffers from depression and has got heart health problems,” Robert said.

“This ‘person’ who he was going to meet… no one from the family have any idea who ‘she’ is and we are obviously concerned that it is a scam.”

On January 7, his family announced that he had been located in Edenvale, east of Johannesburg, in Gauteng, a suburb approximately 17km from the OR Tambo International Airport.

This was after several tip-offs that he had been seen in the area.

Some of those who came forward claiming to have seen him said they had identified him as the missing man by the tattoos on his arm.

The SA Community Crime Watch group, which assisted in the search, said he had the names of his family members tattooed on his forearm.

Spokesperson Steven King told TimesLIVE that two women had found a sunburnt Currie lying under a tree on a pavement in Edenvale.

“When they found him, he was disorientated. He said he got lost and could not find the way back to the place where he was staying,” King said.

He had his cellphone and a pair of jeans with him.

It was not immediately clear whether he met the woman he travelled to South Africa to see during his time in the country.

Pastor MBORO claimed on his Facebook page that he went to hell and killed satan.

On a post that was later deleted when people started asking questions, the pastor claims God sent him to hell to get rid of world’s number one enemy.

He wrote “when I got to hell there was a queue of millions of people waiting to be braai’d by Satan. I even saw some prominent South African politicians. I was so shocked because they lived like angels here on earth. I thought they went to heaven. When Satan saw me he panicked and directed his army to kill me. Like Samson in the Bible, I defeated them. Satan was my last victim”

His received a moria of insults and condemnation from people who told him to stop misleading people. The post went down after an hour. It is not clear whether he will post it again or not. His claims comes months after another equally controversial pastor claimed he went to heaven and took pictures with Jesus.

At the time, the pastor claimed that the exclusive photos would only be released to select few members after of course a fee.

He later released photoshopped images to prove. This is one of the photos he released then.

Ghanaian Soldier Sues British Army For Failing To Protect Him From Winter

Published

on

Ghanaian soldier sues British Army for £150,000 after accusing them of failing to protect him from the British winter.

Michael Asiamah says he suffered from a ‘cold-related’ condition after officers neglected to supply him with warm clothing during an 18-hour exercise in the freezing wind.

The 36-year-old, who served with the Adjutant General’s Corps, said the army exposed him to the cold despite knowing that people of black Caribbean and African origin are more susceptible to cold injuries.

Mr Asiamah, who was born in Ghana, told the High Court the exercises on Salisbury Plain and Naseby Battlefield in Leicestershire left him with numbness and pain.

He claims that superiors failed to warn him to bring kit such as gloves, winter socks and boots for the exercise in March 2016, and when he told them about his susceptibility to the cold he was told to carry on.

The ex-trooper, who now heads an evangelical church near his home in Tidworth, Wiltshire, had served in the army until October 2016.

He was part of the Adjutant General’s Corps, which is responsible for the British Army’s many general administrative services such as HR, finance, accounting and IT.

In court papers, Mr Asiamah claims he is at risk of aggravating his symptoms if he leaves his home in temperatures under 15C (59F), reports the Daily Express.

He says he was first made to attend five hours of lectures in the cold while dressed in civilian clothing at Naseby.

That was followed a week later by manoeuvres on Salisbury Plain, which took place from the early morning until midnight.

His court writ quotes a study carried out in 2009 that claims back British Army soldiers were 30 times as likely as their white colleagues to get a cold weather injury.

The ministry’s own protocol for non-freezing cold injury states that those suffering from the condition should be evacuated immediately.

Army officials maintain that Mr Asiamah was given the appropriate clothing for the exercises and are expected to contest the ex-soldier’s claim.
