Zimbabwean Vice-President John Nkomo died on Thursday after receiving treatment for cancer. Nkomo, 78, was nominated for the joint number two position alongside Joice Mujuru two years ago after a fractious meeting of the southern African nation's ruling ZANU-PF party. A founding member of nationalist leader Joshua Nkomo's ZAPU before its merger with Mugabe's ZANU-PF in the 1980s, John Nkomo was seen by many as an efficient administrator but a remote potential successor to Mugabe due to his age and ill health. Analysts say his death will rekindle debate over 88-year-old Mugabe's health issues and open up a succession battle as the country's shaky coalition government edges towards a general election due this year. Nkomo was among a number of individuals not allowed to travel to the United States because the US government alleges he has worked to undermine democracy and rule of law in Zimbabwe. He is survived by his wife, Georgina Ngwenya. Burial arrangements to be announced by the Family.

Founder, Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has attacked Nigeria’s Lagos State Government for collecting N72 million from him for change of ownership of a parcel of land he bought from the Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN. Bakare, who spoke in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, said he bought the parcel of land from PHCN to build a residential estate to make more people own their houses, saying he was shocked when the state government asked him to pay N72 million. He said after paying the money, the government was yet to release documents of the transaction to him. The preacher stated that such money was unnecessary as he had already paid for the land and that this was one of the evils brought about by the Land Use Act, LUA. “The Land Use Act is the enemy of progress in our country. Due to greed for land, they imposed it in our constitution and they are smiling to the bank every day. Citizens are not having access to land or they will pay through their nose. Am so glad someone is speaking out because this is what we go through in Lagos State.
