Another Nigerian Takes On Multichoice

It is not only Etcetera that is upset with them after all. This was published this morning in Sun News:.
Emotions, very strong ones at that, has dominated public reaction to the 20 per cent hike in subscription rates of various bouquets announced by MultiChoice, the country’s leading pay-TV provider.
To say I was surprised by the public reaction to the announcement, made on 1 March and scheduled to take effect on 1 April, is to betray an Olympic standard lack of awareness of how people react to hikes in prices of goods and services they consider essential to how well they live.

It is a fact that emotions are part of the human make-up and we should expect expressions of such. However, it is also a fact that emotion and reason have a history of estrangement.

Man And Child In ISIS Execution Video Identified As French Citizens

PARIS (AP) — A man and a boy featured in a chilling Islamic State propaganda video showing the killing of a Palestinian have been identified as French citizens, and investigators are looking into whether the man is related to an extremist who attacked a Jewish school in southern France in 2012, an official told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Pope Francis Says His Time As Pope Will Be Short

VATICAN CITY, March 13 (Reuters) - Pope Francis said in an interview published on Friday he believes his pontificate will be short and that he would be ready to resign like his predecessor rather than ruling for life.
In the long interview with Mexican broadcaster Televisa, released on the second anniversary of his surprise election, Francis also said he "did not mind" being pope but would like to be able to go out in Rome unrecognized for a pizza.
"I have the feeling that my pontificate will be brief - four or five years, even two or three. Two have already passed. It's a somewhat strange sensation," he said, according to a Vatican translation from Spanish.
"I feel that the Lord has placed me here for a short time," the Argentine-born pontiff said.
Francis, apparently in good health at 78, said "I share the idea of what Benedict did." In 2013, former

Sanction DSTV In Nigeria NOW - Etcetera Writes...

As usual your Saturday tonic from Etcetera is here. Enjoy;
I have decided to lend my voice to the call for sanctions against Dstv in Nigeria, despite the fact that I have been cautioned by a couple of entertainers that speaking up against the almighty cable network may result in the banning of my works on its network. Yes, it is true that challenging these multinationals in Nigeria attracts sanctions especially for entertainers, but I have decided to speak up because I am one of the millions of Nigerians affected by any increment in subscription charges.
Moreover, what’s the point of having my works on a platform that my fans can’t afford? Every entertainer who’s chickened out of this campaign for his/her selfish interest should know that the continuous indifference of Dstv to our plights over the years is a slap on the face of every Nigerian,
