Please read on for some popular PLO Lumumba quotes that will leave you questioning your language skills.

  • This is what he once said when teachers were on strike;

“The ongoing strike of teachers in Kenya is miasma of deprecated apotheosis of a hemorrhaging plutocracy cascading oozing into a malodorous excrense of mobocracy .With all termagent ossifying prodivities of kakistocracy Kenyatta’s’ knowledge centura is enveloped in a paraphlegic crinkum crankam”

  • here is another one

“In promulgating your esoteric cogitations or articulating your superficial sentimentalities, and amicable philosophical or psychological observations, beware of platitudinous ponderosa. Let your conversational communications possess a compacted conciseness, a clarified comprehensibility, a coalescent cogency, and a concatenated consistency. Eschew obfuscation and all conglomerations of flatulent garrulity, jejune rabblement, and asinine affectations. Let your extemporaneous descanting and unpremeditated expatiations have intelligibility and voracious vivacity without rodomontade or thrasonical bombast. Sedulously avoid all polysyllabic profundity, pompous prolificacy, and vain vapid verbosity.

 

 

US Supreme Court halts Texas abortion clinics closure

The US Supreme Court on Monday temporarily halted the closure of most of the abortion clinics in Texas, two days before rules forcing them to shut their doors were due to go into effect.

Abortion providers said the rules — which included requiring clinics to follow costly hospital-like building standards — amount to a “multi-million dollar tax on abortion services” and would have forced all but nine of the sprawling state’s clinics to close.

The order, which won support of five of the nine justices, blocks implementation of the law while the court considers whether to hear an appeal.

“We’re relieved that the high court has, once again, prevented anti-choice politicians from pushing safe and affordable abortion care entirely out of reach for Texas women,” said Amy Hagstrom Miller, founder of Whole Woman’s Health, which operates six clinics in Texas.

Just 18 abortion clinics are currently operating in Texas, a state larger than France with a population of 30 million people.

That’s down significantly from the 41 clinics operating in Texas in 2013 when a host of restrictions — including those that were temporarily halted Monday — were passed into law. Most of the clinics closed because their physicians had trouble gaining admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

Women living in smaller towns and rural areas have been hardest-hit by the closures as nearly all the clinics are in the state’s five large cities.

Similar restrictions enacted in other states have led to a sharp decline in the number of abortion clinics in recent years.

The Supreme Court is currently considering a case that could lead to the closure of the last abortion provider in the state of Mississippi.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott defended the law as a “constitutional exercise of Texas’ lawmaking authority that was correctly and unanimously upheld by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.”

“Texas will continue to fight for higher-quality healthcare standards for women while protecting our most vulnerable – the unborn, and I’m confident the Supreme Court will ultimately uphold this law,” he said in a statement.

Supreme Court upholds decision to sack judges found unfit to serve

The Supreme Court has upheld decisions made by the Judges and Magistrates vetting board to send packing some Court of Appeal and High Court judges found unfit to serve.

The court ruled that the high court has no jurisdiction to review decisions of the vetting board.

A six judge bench lead by the Chief Justice said that any constitutionally formed body has a mandate to carry out its duties and come up with findings.

The court has therefore ordered names of all judges sent packing be gazzetted. The judges also directed that all cases which had challenged the jurisdiction of the board be mentioned within 15 days for disposal purposes.

The sacked judges had moved to court to challenge the board’s jurisdiction after it declared them unfit to serve.
