Remembering the 1980 Norfolk Hotel bombing – 20 killed and 80 injured

31st December 1980, will always be a dark day in Kenya’s history.

On this day in 1980, 20 people of different nationalities were killed and 87 were wounded when a bomb exploded in the then Jewish-owned Norfolk hotel.

The terrorists destroyed much of the west wing of the hotel of the historic monument to Kenya’s colonial history.

Norfolk Nairobi in the past
Norfolk Nairobi in 1928

This bombing would herald the continuation of the cloud of terrorism that has hounded Kenya ever since, with the last attack coming early this year at Dusit Hotel located on Riverside.

The bomb exploded shortly before midnight when diners had assembled for a New Year’s Eve dinner. It was later found out by international security agencies in conjunction with the Kenya Police that the bomber was 34-year-old Qaddura Mohammed Abdel al-Hamid of Morocco.

He was travelling on a Maltese passport. The investigations also revealed that Qaddura had checked into the hotel in the last week of 1980. He had then paid for his room until New Year’s Day but slipped away on the afternoon of 31 December.

He was already on his way to Saudi Arabia by the time the sophisticated time bomb exploded. The initial reports blamed the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO) but it denied responsibility with suspicion then shifting to its rival, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

The reason the competing groups might have had a bone to pick with Kenya was its role in the successful Entebbe raid of 1976.  The raid could not proceed without assistance from at least one East African government. The Israeli government secured permission from Kenya for the IDF task force to cross Kenyan airspace and refuel at JKIA.

The result was a successful counter-terrorism hostage-rescue mission carried out by Israel Defense Forces commandos on 4 July of that year.

Although the PFLP had carried out the hijacking, the PLO and other organisations were opposed to any country seen as cosying up to the Jewish state.

6 important ways to know you are falling into depression

May is the Mental Awareness Month.

 

A study by WHO ranked Kenyans as the 6th most depressed people in Africa.

The study suggested that men were more affected by this condition than women.

In regards to mental health, we have highlighted 6 ways you might know that you are falling into depression:

1. Lack of Appetite and weight changes

When someone is falling into depression, lack of appetite and slowly losing weight is a trigger that may result from mental health.

Loss of appetite and weight changes could be from very many factors but when it comes to mental health, you may find that it’s simply because you are stressed or just don’t want to eat at all.

‘Alcohol was going to kill me, pancreatitis saved me’ – Journalist Tom Mboya

2. Feeling of guilt and self hate

“I hate myself” is a sadly common voice that people struggle with.

This inner voice is especially very active when one has had self doubt and hopelessness over a situation and it tends to lead to all the negative voices that weigh down your positive progress.

3. Hopelessness 

People who are falling into depression tend to feel hopeless and have self doubt.

This distorts their minds to be one that they do not believe in themselves  and rather one that they are always doubting what they do.

hopelessnesscanbegood (1)

 

4. Lack or concentration

Excessive tiredness that results from signs of depression can cause a lack of concentration that continues for an extended period of time.

Stress and anxiety can also be part of the equation. Stress and anxiety could result to anything that is happening or what they feel could happen in future.

5. Fatigue and body pains 

Feeling of body fatigue and body pains is one of the ways that one knows that they are falling into some sort of mental problem.

This may happen even after sleeping for 24 hours and even after so much rest, you still wake up tired.

Stress could also trigger fatigue and pains, this is because when one is stressed for a long duration of time, their bodies get worn out from all the weight of the stress.

6. Withdrawing from close family and friends

What happens to a depressed person is that they start to withdraw from everything and everyone.

This may include intimate partner, children, parents, siblings or other household members.

When this happens it does not mean that they are doing well or avoiding you, it means they just need help and they need it from you

‘I exchanged more than 5000 babies during birth’ Confesses former nurse

A former Zambian nurse, Elizabeth Mwewa, has shocked many after she confessed to switching babies during birth just for fun.

She decided to confess of her wrong doing as she feels the ‘angle of death ‘ is around the corner.

Elizabeth Mwewa

Speaking from her hospital bed where she is battling cancer she says

“I have terminal cancer and I know I will be dying soon.

I wish to confess my sins before God and before all the affected people especially those who were giving birth at UTH during my service.

I have found God, I am now born again. I have nothing to hide.

‘I impregnated my son’s class teacher’ Brags a member of team mafisi

000000000ayesha baby

In the 12 years I worked in the maternity ward at UTH, I swapped close to 5000 babies,” Zambian Observer reports

I know I sinned against God and may he forgive me for that.

I am also asking Zambians to forgive me for the evil things I was doing to innocent children. I have caused some faithful couples to divorce after going for DNA Tests.

Its now that I have realized I was just being used by a demon to do that.

I have caused many mothers to breastfeed children who are not theirs biologically. I don’t want to go to Hell for that.

Am really sorry I have sinned a lot. Please forgive me.

‘He dumped me while pregnant after I gave him half a million’ Cries woman

In conclusion she says

If you were born in UTH between the years 1983 to 1995 chances are your parents may not be your biological parents. I had developed a habit of swapping newly born babies just for fun.

So take a good look at your siblings, if for example everyone is light and you are darkie… you are that child and I am really sorry for that .

Do you think that she should be forgiven?
