It was shortly after my morning prayers. I  picked up my jotter from my bedside table  to note down all my activities for the day. It is a daily routine for ...

Biafran Memorial: a Visit to Nigerian War Museum in Umuahia

By Uche Amunike I did not witness the Nigerian Civil War. Wasn’t born then, thankfully. I only heard tales about it and haven’t stopped imagining what life must have been like for those Nigerians who experienced it all while it lasted- the starvation, the fear, the tension, sickness and deaths, trepidation, etc. My deep respects go to all survivors of ...

COVID-19 is as Real as the Sky is Blue!!!

By Uche Amunike I was in Dubai during the yuletide where I spent my last holiday. That was where I witnessed firsthand, people close to me facing and indeed, accepting the reality of testing positive to the dreaded COVID-19 virus.

My Heart Bleeds…Adieu Nkechi!!!

By Uche Amunike I will start by apologizing for not being available last week. It was one of those times when I realize how helpless and frustrating it could be if your sit before your computer and you are dying to write about a million things, but realize your mind is blank. It was pretty much my dilemma. I had ...

The Man, Valentine Ozigbo

By Uche Amunike You know the thing they say about vessels? They make noise when they are empty. It’s not just a popular saying. It’s a factual one. However, when a vessel is loaded and filled to the brim, it doesn’t make noise. Even if you hit it with a hard piece of wood, you can only hear a subdued ...
