Ms Catherine Kumar was quoted in the press as stating: “...Cepep is not the way to go and (its) funds should be redirected to helping the private sector put a different means in place so they can employ the persons from the beginning, train them in the different areas in which they employ them an

In recent times at award functions, graduation ceremonies etc, Muslim women have been seen refusing to shake hands with men. Unfortunately, it is proclaimed as a religious duty, which in fact can no way be substantiated from the supreme law of Islam, the Holy Qur’an. In fact the Holy Qur’an procl

Last week I had a bout of the flu with a constant, unusual fatigue never experienced before, so I made an effort to invest in a doctor’s visit. After trying at two neighbourhood doctors’ offices (both were closed off for holidays), I ambled around to find any others open to prevent making a secon
