Nurse suspended over controversial selfie in labour ward



A nurse has been suspended after her selfie showing a naked, pregnant woman in the background surfaced online.

The post by Patricia Malichi attracted anger from Malawians on social media who called for her immediate dismissal.

Following the backlash, the health ministry is investigating the incident which happened at Ndirande Health Centre in Blantyre city to determine whether Malichi posted the image or if it was leaked.

Speaking to CNN, Malawi’s Ministry of Health spokesman Joshua Malango said that the midwifery council and the district health authorities were handling the case.

“We don’t want to judge her, and that’s why we’re working with the council for a fair trial and a clear investigation of the matter, and for them to come up with a recommendation.

“We want to find out how that picture ended up in the public domain,” he said.

Recently, medical practitioners have come under fire for sharing patients’ private information.

In 2017, two nurses in Florida, USA were fired for sharing a video of themselves making inappropriate gestures at a new-born baby.

Blurred cleavage: Row at BBC over female body censorship



An internal row has reportedly erupted at the BBC over the censoring of female body’s after an interviewee’s body was blurred in an interview shot in Nairobi.

According to The Guardian, top editors at the British broadcaster are engaged in a tussle after a documentary on how people portray themselves on social media was edited and an interviewee’s cleavage blurred out.

This was supposedly to avoid offending viewers from conservative African countries where it was shown.

The BBC Africa documentary featured Glamour Pam – a Kenyan lady who describes herself as an interior designer, makeup artist and Kenyan social media star.

She was featured as an interviewee in BBC’s fake news documentary dubbed Fake Me: Living for Likes.

The Guardian said a staff member at the BBC said the decision to blur Pam’s cleavage was arrived at by senior editors after efforts to zoom in to avoid exposing her cleavage proved futile particularly with the wide shots.

Pam discussed in the interview her attitude towards social media explaining that for best Instagram photos, one must look “elegant and sophisticated”.

Following the said row, The Guardian quoted a BBC spokesperson as having said “#thesheword is broadcast via a number of BBC partner stations in Africa which are subject to watershed rules similar to the UK’s. As the majority of our partner stations show the programme pre-watershed, we ensured the film was suitable for broadcast in those markets.”

How Nairobi dust and old car tested Michele Obama’s love for her husband



This year, First lady Michelle Obama was enjoying Beyonce and Jay Z’ performance in France while her husband Barack Obama visited his home and family in Kenya, Bondo.

The former American First lady Michelle Obama has now opened up on a possible reason why she did not accompany her husband Barrack Obama during his two recent visits to Kenya saying that her first visit in the country was just more than frustrating.

In her memoir titled “Becoming”, Michelle shared that on her first trip to Kenya in 1992 was full of misfortunes and even wore the wrong shoes. Obama’s sister, Auma, also had an old car that left her frustrated.

“Auma’s sky-blue VW was so old that it often needed to be pushed in order to get the engine into gear. I’d ill-advisedly bought new white sneakers to wear on the trip, and within a day, after all the pushing we did, they’d turned reddish brown, stained with the cinnamon-hued dust of Nairobi,” she shared. 

The 54-year-old who was born the US in 1964 added that the trip was also tiring and although she witnessed some beautiful scenaries, she was really frustrated.

“For every bit of awe we felt in Kenya, we were also tired, which led to quibbling, which led finally, for whatever reason, to rage. “I’m so angry at Barack,” I wrote in my journal. “I don’t think we have anything in common.” My thoughts trailed off there. As a measure of my frustration, I drew a long emphatic gash across the rest of the page,” the memoir went on.” she said.
