Books of Eli: Memoirs of the Archcardinal

When the eleventh hour hath come on the twentieth and sixth day of the eleventh moon which Roman stargazers dedicate to the god Janus, in fulfillment of the prophecy, a man child was untimely ripped from his mother, one clear moon before due. Upon whom hath been bestowed an kingship as hath ere been heard in the land. Vouchsafe of his father, was the rank of the Archduke and Archcardinal even according to the lineage of his father, Jenkins and his grandfather Abraham and even unto his ancestor Igo, who hath chalked his eye in the wisdom of the stars, thence he hath the imperial blood of the kings and makers of kings in the generations of yore and even unto this day. This prophecy came to pass in the hospice of St. Anthonio in the citadel of Aba, in the lands of the east, one score, ten and two…

Its not enough to establish that a party to a marriage has committed adultery ( and contrary to what I have read elsewhere recently it DOES NOT only apply to the wife or female party). Remember evidence of adultery can be circumstantial, the court will consider preponderance of evidence and not proof beyond reasonable doubt.  The court will look for opportunity and familiarity.

There are a number of circumstances were adultery is generally presumed

1. where the parties are living together

2. Bigamy is proof of adultery

3. Confessions of adultery are also proof

4. The  fathers name registered on a child’s birth certificate

5. Frequent visits to brothels

6. Sexually transmitted diseases that the other spouse does not also have

Prize for literature, politics and conspiracy theories of corporate social philanthropy!

Africa is a Country (Old Site)

The richest literary prize in the world, the Nobel Prize, carries a US$1.1 million purse. The richest lit prize in Africa, the NLNG Nigeria Prize for Literature, doesn’t quite match up, but it does guarantee the winner a whopping US$100,000. It’s been around since 2004, with the purse increasing from $20,000 to $40,000 in 2006 and finally to $100,000 in 2008. The latest prize, awarded at the start of November, went to Chika Unigwe for her novel “On Black Sisters Street.” Though there has been widespreadpraise for Unigwe across the Naijanet, talk of the politics of her win has been muted.

Mind over matter

By Noel A. Ihebuzor

Complicit mind

over matter imperfect,

mind in matter,

matter under mind

matter with mind,

imperfect matter,

gently rolled

kneaded soft hard by mind,

matter-mind

fused, matted and siamesed,

spiralling to fused mutual perfecting

and that is all that matters

for the whoops, the swooshes,

crests, waves,

the unending inebriating

deeps, dips

valleys and volleys

 

the mind massaging

feeling and filling,

perfecting

the imperfections of matter

always imperfect nearly

 

***Inspired by a lovely poem I just read on the blog of one great poet, friend and duet partner, Susan Daniels.
