A 42-year-old Nigerian has been killed after allegedly harassing a female bartender in a drunken state in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The deceased was identified as Chibuzo Nwankwo, a native of Enugu State in Nigeria. Nwankwo was reportedly shot in the early hours of Friday, July 27, 2018, at a local bar in Kempton Park, Johannesburg, following a disagreement with an unknown person.
His death was confirmed by the Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian Union in South Africa, Habib Miller on Saturday, July 28, 2018.
Narrating the circumstances surrounding Nwankwo’s death, Miller said the deceased got drunk and harassed a female worker when things got out of hand.
“The deceased, a patron of the bar, got drunk and started harassing a female worker.
“Information available to the union said that Nwankwo was chased out by security personnel, but he kept on coming back; became very aggressive and rude before the ugly incident occurred.
“A murder case has been opened and an investigation has started. We call on Nigerians to be calm and allow the law to take its course,” Miller said.
Miller also said that Chibuzo Nwankwo’s death brings to 121 the number of Nigerians killed in South Africa since January 2016.
He said the union was against at any form of violence, adding that it would monitor the case to ensure that justice prevailed.
When you have a setback then it’s easy to start doubting yourself and what you do. To believe that this current setback is something that will simply become your new normal. It’s easy to make it very personal and to start seeing yourself as the failure because of what happened.
This is a destructive way of looking at things that can drag you down and get you stuck under a dark cloud of self-pity. So I’ve learned to look at it this way instead: A setback is something that sometimes happens. It can be helpful and it’s just temporary.
Now, here’s how I usually break that down into three steps.
1. A sobering reminder. Take a few deep breaths to calm down and then remind yourself: You’re not a failure just because you failed. Setbacks happen to everyone that take chances. It’s simply a part of living life fully. Sometimes things go well and sometimes they don’t. So don’t make a failure into this huge thing or into your identity.
2. Get something helpful out of it. Ask yourself: what is one thing I can learn from this setback? Use the mistake, stumble or setback to your advantage as you go forward.
3. Get going in some small way to make it temporary to yourself. I know it’s tempting to sit still and feel sorry for yourself, to beat yourself up or to just do nothing. I’ve done it more times than I can count.
But I’ve also found that the best way to convince myself that this setback is just temporary is to start moving again. So I take one small step forward. Or I take what I can learn from what happened and make a small action-plan that I can use to avoid making the same mistake again.
Just taking one or a few small steps might not sound like much. But it can work wonders for your optimism and confidence. That’s at least been my experience. Have a wonderful Sunday and week ahead!

Hundreds of people have been killed by bandits in Zamfara.
The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Right Rev. Dr. Matthew Hassan Kukah has paid a solidarity visit to the Internally Displaced Persons in Gandi, Rabat Local Government Area of Sokoto State. He was there to sympathize with the remaining 4,900 displaced persons who survived the attack by bandits during which not less than 76 persons lost their lives.
Bishop Kukah was accompanied on the visit by some members of the Catholic Community from Sokoto as well as the Zonal and Sector Commanders of the FRSC.
The Bishop donated in aid of the IDPs, 17 bags of rice, 40 wrappers, soup ingredients, different varieties of drugs and other items. He presented the District Head of Gandi and the Secretary of Rabah Local Government along with officials of the Sokoto State Emergency Management Agency.
Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah said the criminals who perpetrated the killing do not care about the faith of their victims.
He called on Christians and Muslims to collaborate to defeat the goal of criminals to drive a wedge between adherents of both religions.
The District Head of Gandi and Secretary to Rabah Local Government both commended the Bishop and the Catholic Church for the kindness and maturity shown. They both affirmed that Christians and Muslims need to unite in the common humanity and brotherhood.
Bishop Kukah later visited the displaced persons in the camp located within the Gandi Primary school.
One of the displaced persons recalled that the bandits wrote to the farming communities in the three villages to provide N1.5m or risk their lives.
He said they couldn’t raise such amount and true to the threat, the bandits invaded the communities on motorcycles killing everyone in sight.
