Spared by the hitmen with principles

One year ago a group of gunmen in Burundi was hired to kill a woman visiting from Australia. But the hit did not go as planned, leaving her with a chance to turn the tables on the man who wanted her dead.

"I felt like somebody who had risen again," says Noela Rukundo.

She was supposed to be dead. The hired killers had been paid. They had even explained how they would dispose of the body.

But now, waiting outside her house for the last of the mourners to leave, she was ready to face down the man who had put out a contract for her murder.

"When I get out of the car, he saw me straight away. He put his hands on his head and said, 'Is it my eyes? Is it a ghost?'"

"Surprise! I'm still alive!" she replied.

Noela's ordeal began five days earlier, and 7,500 miles away in her native Burundi. She had returned to Africa from her home in Melbourne, Australia, to attend her stepmother's funeral.

"I had lost the last person who I call 'mother'," she says. "It was very painful. I was so stressed."

By early evening Noela had retreated to her hotel room. As she lay dozing in the stifling city heat of Bujumbura, her phone rang. It was a call from Australia - from Balenga Kalala, her husband and father to her three youngest children.

"He says he'd been trying to get me for the whole day," Noela says. "I said I was going to bed. He told me, 'To bed? Why are you sleeping so early?'

"I say, 'I'm not feeling happy'. And he asks me, 'How's the weather? Is it very, very hot?' He told me to go outside for fresh air."

Noela took his advice.

"I didn't think anything. I just thought that he cared about me, that he was worried about me."

But moments after stepping outside the hotel compound, Noela found herself in danger.

"I opened the gate and I saw a man coming towards me. Then he pointed the gun on me.

"He just told me, 'Don't scream. If you start screaming, I will shoot you. They're going to catch me, but you? You will already be dead.'

"So, I did exactly what he told me."

The gunman motioned Noela towards a waiting car.

"I was sitting between two men. One had a small gun, one had a long gun. And the men say to the driver, 'Pass us a scarf.' Then they cover my face.

"After that, I didn't say anything. They just said to the driver, 'Let's go.'

"I was taken somewhere, 30 to 40 minutes, then I hear the car stop."

Noela was pushed inside a building and tied to a chair.

"One of the kidnappers told his friend, 'Go call the boss.' I can hear doors open but I didn't know if their boss was in a room or if he came from outside.

"They ask me, 'What did you do to this man? Why has this man asked us to kill you?' And then I tell them, 'Which man? Because I don't have any problem with anybody.' They say, 'Your husband!' I say, 'My husband can't kill me, you are lying!' And then they slap me.

"After that the boss says, 'You are very stupid, you are fool. Let me call who has paid us to kill you.'"

The gang's leader made the call.

"We already have her," he triumphantly told his paymaster.

The phone was put on loudspeaker for Noela to hear the reply.

Her husband's voice said: "Kill her."

Just hours earlier, the same voice had consoled her over the death of her stepmother and urged her to take fresh air outside the hotel. Now her husband Balenga Kalala had condemned her to death.

"I heard his voice. I heard him. I felt like my head was going to blow up.

"Then they described for him where they were going to chuck the body."

At that, Noela says she passed out.

Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Balenga Kalala had arrived in Australia in 2004 as a refugee, after fleeing a rebel army that had rampaged through his village, killing his wife and young son.

Settling in Melbourne, he soon found steady employment, first in a seafood processing factory and then in a warehouse as a forklift operator.

"He could already speak English," recalls Noela, who also arrived in Australia in 2004. "My social worker was his social worker, and they used him to translate Swahili."

The two fell in love. They set up home in the Kings Park suburb of the city. Noela had five children from a previous relationship and went on to have three more with Kalala.

"I knew he was a violent man," admits Noela. "But I didn't believe he can kill me. I loved this man with all my heart!

"I give him, beautiful and handsome, two boys and one girl. So I don't know why he choose to kill me."

As the gang's leader ended the call to Kalala, Noela was coming round.

"I said to myself, I was already dead. Nothing I can do can save me.

"But he looks at me and then he says, 'We're not going to kill you. We don't kill women and children.'

"He told me I'd been stupid because my husband paid them the deposit in November. And when I went to Africa it was January. He asked me, 'How stupid can you be, from November, you can't see that something is wrong?'"

He might have been a hit-man with principles, but the gang's leader still took the opportunity to extort more money from Kalala. He called him back and informed him that the fee for the murder had increased. He wanted a further 3,400 Australian dollars (£1,700) to finish the job.

Back at the hotel, Noela's brother was getting worried about her disappearance. He called Kalala in Australia to ask for $545 to pay the police to open an investigation - Kalala feigned concern and duly wired the money.

After two days in captivity, Noela was freed.

"'We give you 80 hours to leave this country,'" Noela says the gang told her. "'Your husband is serious. Maybe we can spare your life, but other people, they're not going to do the same thing. If God helps you, you'll get to Australia.'"

Before leaving Noela by the side of a road, the gang handed her the evidence they hoped would incriminate Kalala - a memory card containing recorded phone conversations of him discussing the murder and receipts for the Western Union money transfers.

We just want you to go back, to tell other stupid women like you what happened," the gang told Noela as they parted. "You must learn something: you people get a chance to go overseas for a better life. But the money you are earning, the money the government gives to you, you use it for killing each other!"

Noela immediately began planning her return to Australia. She called the pastor of her church in Melbourne, Dassano Harruno Nantogmah, and requested his help.

"'It was in the middle of the night. I says, 'It's me, I'm still alive, don't tell anybody.' He says, 'Noela, I don't believe it. Balenga can't kill someone!' And I said, 'Pastor, believe me!'"

Three days later, on the evening of 22 February 2015, Noela was back in Melbourne.

By now, Kalala had informed the community that his wife had died in a tragic accident. He had spent the day hosting a steady stream of well-wishers, many of whom donated money.

"It was around 7.30pm," Noela says. "He was in front of the house. People had been inside mourning with him and he was escorting a group of them into a car."

It was as they drove away that Noela sprang her surprise.

"I was stood just looking at him. He was scared, he didn't believe it. Then he starts walking towards me, slowly, like he was walking on broken glass.

"He kept talking to himself and when he reached me, he touched me on the shoulder. He jumped.

"He did it again. He jumped. Then he said, 'Noela, is it you?'… Then he start screaming, 'I'm sorry for everything.'"

Noela called the police who ordered Kalala off the premises and later obtained a court order against him. Days later, the police instructed Noela to call Kalala. Kalala made a full confession to his wife, captured on tape, begging for her forgiveness and revealing why he had ordered the murder.

"He say he wanted to kill me because he was jealous," says Noela. "He think that I wanted to leave him for another man."

She rejects the accusation.

In a police interview, Kalala denied any involvement in the plot. "The pretence," wrote the judge at his trial in December, "lasted for hours." But when confronted with the recording of his telephone conversation with Noela and the evidence she brought back from Burundi he started to cry.

Kalala was still unable to offer any explanation for his actions, suggesting only that "sometimes [the] devil can come into someone to do something but after they do it, they start thinking, 'Why I did that thing?'"

On 11 December last year, in court in Melbourne, after pleading guilty to incitement to murder, Kalala was sentenced to nine years in prison.

"His voice always comes in the night - 'Kill her, kill her,'" says Noela of the nightmares that now plague her. "Every night, I see what was happening in those two days with the kidnappers."

Ostracised by many in Melbourne's African community, some of whom blame her for Kalala's conviction, Noela sees a difficult future for her and her eight children.

"But I will stand up like a strong woman," she says.

"My situation, my past life? That is gone. I'm starting a new life now."

Black Scribes by Paul Koomson

Oh, how I wish

The Bible was written by a Black man,

An African or some coloured people

Then they would have been divinely inspired

To be the heralds of the Creator's will,

Our creator's grand plan, His ways,

The divine rules of the ultimate maker

Who has always been

Blacks would have been the scribes

And the Dark Continent the cradle

Of improved Judaism

Or maybe it was modernised

What then would the world's response have been

Could the dark arena have emitted light

To all the universe

Wonder is the response

Perhaps the heathens would have been Israelites

No! Forget not,

That time is too remote

Well, they were god-open but God-remote

Africa knew nothing and could not document

What about the Pharaoh's land?

Leave that one

What if Africa is freed of the double bind

From the rulers of our rulers,

From the monster rulers of the states,

The auto-images of the fiend.

 

The Bible may have been written by Africans.

Little Things Musicians in Ghana Don’t Do Yet Expect a Break Through

Music has never been for fun only. That’s why we call it ‘Music Business’ and that is one good reason I don’t render services for musicians for free. It is business and its has rules!

In Music Business, commercial success is the ultimate. Every musician in Ghana definitely wants a break through. It could be a single record or an album. There are few things I know musicians in Ghana are aware of but deliberately relegate to the background and still expect to be talk of the town. How you package yourself will determine how long you will be relevant in the music industry.

I have paid attention to some of our musicians speak on both radio and television and it feels terrible. Most of them find it difficult to express themselves. Expressing one’s self is a big deal. If you know how to express yourself publicly, you can communicate well even with gestures. Some musicians are just refusing to learn the English language and those who mostly grant interviews in any of the local languages also face a lot of problems. The truth is that English is the official language of Ghana and it is expedient that any inhabitant or citizen of Ghana learns it to enable them communicate with ease.

The next point is that musicians in Ghana have no respect for those who promote their music and brand – from radio presenters, disc jockeys, promoters, bloggers etc. They treat them like their services are ancillary. Meanwhile, these people are the life of the craft. Aside the fact that the promoters need the musician’s songs and video as content, the musicians also need those platforms to reach out to their fans and potential fans. Just like any other business there is the need to keep strong business tide that binds both sides.

 Good looks and distinguished identity will bring in endorsement deals too. Don’t forget that too. 

In this era where sales of compact discs has drastically gone down, free downloads and striving for a hit song has become the order of the day. But the cash flows more from the stage. Some of our musicians have good songs yet they have appalling stage craft. You will lose interest in their brand after watching some of them perform.

 I’ve spent time with some artiste backstage during major events in Ghana and the atmosphere has always not been nice. Besides, our musicians hardly spend time trying to link up with other acts beyond their jurisdiction. It is necessary – not just for collaboration but to share ideas. Music is a global trade.  If we really want to go beyond our immediate boundaries, then we need to network with other acts elsewhere.


Ghanaian musicians are making money. To some extent, yes, they are not lacking. We always see them riding in luxurious automobiles, great mansions, beautiful ‘chicks’ and better clothes that cost thousands of Ghana cedis. So why can’t they employ the services of a Public Relations experts or publicists? Not every blogger is a public relations expert. You need a publicist to communicate to the public on your behalf and also network with all the media outlets that matters on your behalf. These are professionals you can hire to execute a deal. Most musicians take good initiatives that the public don’t know about. Others have their image tarnished because there was nobody to do the damage control.

Recently a Ghanaian blog released a list of Ghanaian artistes who are very interactive on the social media. It looks good but more can be done. Most artistes just don’t know how to get interactive with the fans.

 One thing you should not forget is that the social media administrator cannot do all. You frequently need to track your fan base to know where to push in a lot of energy. Musicians and their management should stop treating these partners like their effort is an option. They play instrumental roles in their career development and success.

Let’s do the best we can so the music craft will gain massive recognition and patronage both in Ghana and on the international market. It doesn’t come on a silver platter.

Latest News

White House press secretary Sean Spicer resigns

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has quit, reportedly in protest at a shake-up of the communications team.

Mr Spicer stepped down because he was unhappy with President Donald Trump's appointment of a new communications director, reports the New York Times.

Combative Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci has been picked for the role that Mr Spicer partially filled.

Mr Spicer's press briefings were a cable news hit, but he withdrew from camera in recent weeks.

Profile: Who is Anthony Scaramucci?

The shake-up comes as the White House faces inquiries into alleged Russian meddling in last year's US presidential election and whether Mr Trump's campaign team colluded with Moscow.

The New York Times reports that 45-year-old Mr Spicer "vehemently" disagreed with the appointment of Mr Scaramucci, which he believed to be a "major mistake".


Spicer's low points

  • inflating crowd sizes at Trump inauguration at first briefing
  • his appearance, particularly his suits, reportedly criticised by Trump
  • saying Hitler never used chemical weapons and referring to Holocaust "centres"
  • butt of text message joke by adviser Steve Bannon about his weight
  • defending Trump "covfefe" tweet by saying it had hidden meaning
  • frozen out of meeting with the Pope in Rome, despite being devout Catholic
  • not invited to Paris for Trump visit

The search for a new appointment began after Mike Dubke resigned from the communications director job in May.

Mr Spicer has been serving as both press secretary and communications director since Mr Dubke's exit.

On day one in January, Mr Spicer set the tone of his relationship with the press by bursting into the briefing room to berate journalists for their reporting of crowd numbers at President Trump's inauguration.

His proclivity for gaffes and garbling of his words, as well as making debatable assertions, soon saw Mr Spicer's name trending on Twitter.

He was mercilessly lampooned on the topical comedy show Saturday Night Live, where Melissa McCarthy played him as a gum-chewing, loud-mouthed thug who brandished his lectern at reporters.

Mr Spicer became something of a punchline when he reportedly sought refuge by a hedgerow on the White House grounds to evade reporters' questions on the night Mr Trump fired the FBI director in May.

Mr Scaramucci, who has no previous experience in communications roles, is currently senior vice-president of the Export-Import Bank, a US government agency which guarantees loans for foreign buyers of American exports.

He landed his first music contract during his mother’s funeral. And for more than 30 years Paapa Yankson has produced music that has brought life to many dead souls.

Even though both of his parents were musicians, they didn’t want him to take up singing. Instead, they wanted him to have a white collar job.

His father, Benjamin Akono Yankson, was a reputable trumpeter with the Apam Brass Band while his mother Akua Doma, a trader, was a member of the Christ Little Band of the Methodist Church. According to him, anytime his mother sang while doing her house chores, he sang along with her.

Afghan girls robotics team wins in Washington

A team of girls from Afghanistan has won a special award at an international robotics competition in Washington in the US.

The six girls were taking part in the FIRST Global Challenge competition, which took place across three days and saw 158 nations compete against each other.

They took home a silver medal for courageous achievement, which was awarded to teams "that exhibit a can-do attitude throughout the challenge, even under difficult circumstances, or when things do not go as planned".

According to the New York Times, the team's mentor Alireza Mehraban said: "We are simple people with ideas. We need a chance to make our world better. This is our chance."

Their story made the news because, at first, they weren't going to be allowed to go to the competition because of visa problems.

They were told twice that they weren't allowed to enter the country so wouldn't have been able to take part.

However, US President Donald Trump stepped in at the last minute and the girls were able to travel to the US and participate.

The competition - which hopes to inspire young people to want careers in science, technology, engineering, and maths - will take place in Mexico City next year.

Teens from Burundi robotics team go missing in US

Six teenagers from Burundi taking part in a robotics competition in the US have been reported missing, police say.

Four boys and two girls - aged from 16 to 18 - disappeared during the First Global Challenge tournament in Washington DC.

The DC Police Department says they were last seen on Tuesday - on the closing day of the competition.

Reports say two of the teenagers have since crossed into Canada but this has not been confirmed by the police.

On Thursday, the DC Police Department posted fliers of the missing group on its Twitter page, asking members of the public to get in touch if they had any information.

The teenagers were identified as Don Ingabire, 16, Kevin Sabumukiza, 17, Nice Munezero, 17, Audrey Mwamikazi, 17, Richard Irakoze, 18, and Aristide Irambona, 18.

Competition organisers say they alerted police after Burundi's team supervisor was unable to find the teenagers.

In a statement, First Global Challenge spokesman Jose Escotto said "the proper reports have been submitted to the police who are investigating the case", according to the Washington Post.

The three-day robotics competition saw teams from 150 nations compete against each other.

The event aims to inspire young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths.

However, it made the news earlier this month after a team of girls from Afghanistan were initially not allowed to attend the competition because of visa problems.

But US President Donald Trump stepped in at the last minute and the girls were able to travel to the US and participate.

The Afghan team later won a silver medal for courageous achievement, which was awarded to teams "that exhibit a can-do attitude throughout the challenge, even under difficult circumstances, or when things do not go as planned".

Chester Bennington had died: Linkin Park vocalist 'took his own life'

Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington has died aged 41, LA County Coroner says.

The coroner said Bennington apparently hanged himself. His body was found at a private home in the county at 09:00 local time (17:00 GMT) on Thursday.

Bennington was said to be close to Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell, who took his own life in May.

Formed in 1996, Linkin Park has sold more than 70 million albums worldwide and has two Grammy Awards.

The band had a string of hits including Faint, In The End and Crawling, and collaborated with the rapper Jay-Z.

Its album Meteora topped the Billboard 200 chart in 2003 and is regarded as one of the biggest indie rock records of all time.

Bennington leaves a wife, and six children from two marriages.

He is said to have struggled for years with alcohol and drug abuse, and has talked in the past about suicide as a result of being a victim of abuse as a child.

OJ Simpson wins parole

OJ Simpson, the former American football star and convict, had told a court in Nevada that he "basically lived a conflict-free life" as he expressed regret for getting involved in an armed robbery, and pleaded for his freedom on live TV.

Simpson was convicted in 2008 of an armed robbery involving two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.

The 70-year-old is today asking four parole board members to release him after serving the minimum nine years of a 33-year sentence.

His daughter Arnelle, 48, testified on his behalf, describing him as a flawed but ultimately good man, and saying: "We just want him home".

Simpson appeared as inmate No. 1027820, dressed in blue jeans and a blue button-down shirt, in a stark hearing room in a remote Nevada prison.

OJ gets parole

"It was a serious crime, you deserved to be sent to prison'" says Nevada Parole Commissioner, Tony Corda. "You have complied with the rules of the prison and you have programmed in an acceptable manner. You are a low risk offender according to our guidelines and you have community support." The other three commissioners concur.

Press release: 65% of Ghanaians Blame The Increasing Spate of Mob Injustice On The Corrupt Police And The Court System In Ghana - Piran

In recent times, Ghanaians have experienced many instances of mob injustice leading to the lynching of innocent people on suspicion of being thieves, armed robbers or witches without allowing the law to take its course. This is mainly due to distrust in the police and court. Many people in certain communities have a countless number of instances where suspected criminals and outlaws are left to go free or treated with kit groves, encouraging offended persons and communities to result in this uncivilized and barbaric ways of seeking redress and justice that has been denied them by the law enforcing authority.

Many individuals, groups and communities in Ghana are not pleased with the work of the police and court adjudications because of the belief that justice in some cases as shown in some of Anas Aremeyaw Anas undercover works confirming an open secret that justice is given to the highest bidder, making the offended party with no money angry and trying to seek justice their own way. It is therefore appropriate for the law enforcement authority to be alive and responsible for their duties of prosecution and adjudication of justice in a fair, honest and transparent manner to win back the confidence of Ghanaians, and to discourage people from resulting in this inhuman and barbaric means of seeking justice.

The average Ghanaian do not see the willingness and the readiness of the Police to win the trust and confidence of Ghanaian with respect to their handling of certain criminal cases, because there has been instances where people who are supposed to be in either prisons or police custody have been involved and mention  in crime and offences committed during their period of incarceration, a typical case is the gruesome murder of the former Ashanti Regional GJA Chairman, Mr. Edward Best Enning, where some of the reports that came suggested certain outlaws in prison might have come out of prison to commit that murder, there has also been an online publication by a Kumasi base ultimate FM that a notorious armed robber who is suppose to be in prison is walking around and acting as a bodyguard to some

prostitutes who give information about their client to these robbers for attack to rob them of their monies and properties. How would victims of these robbers on the loose feel if they see them on the street or catch them on robbery mission and the police are not available or the police station is far away? Your guess will be as good as mine.

Many people are de-motivated to report offences to the police because of the lackadaisical attitude of some policemen and women who make financial demands and other conditions such as complainant hiring cars before they attend to them.

There is a recent mob injustice in the Northern Region where a suspected motorbike thief’s throat was slash by the mob that arrested him and dump his body elsewhere, before his body was taken to Tamale West Hospital, indicating that many people still uphold the criminal ways of seeking justice they believe the authority responsible may not give them a fair justice to their satisfaction.

In our quest to get the mindset of Ghanaians on this menace of mob injustice, we pose a question, are Ghanaians pleased with the work of the police and the court in adjudicating crime cases? 325 of the 500 people representing 65% of the respondents says empathic no whiles the remaining 175 out of the 500 respondent representing 35% said yes they are pleased with the work of the police and the court. In all 6 regions out of 10 regions were selected with each region having 83 respondents in the major district capital within the said regions of Northern Region, Brong Ahafo Region, Ashanti Region, Greater Accra Region, Volta Region and Central Region.

Chester Bennington had died: Linkin Park vocalist 'took his own life'

Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington has died aged 41, LA County Coroner says.

The coroner said Bennington apparently hanged himself. His body was found at a private home in the county at 09:00 local time (17:00 GMT) on Thursday.

Bennington was said to be close to Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell, who took his own life in May.

Formed in 1996, Linkin Park has sold more than 70 million albums worldwide and has two Grammy Awards.

The band had a string of hits including Faint, In The End and Crawling, and collaborated with the rapper Jay-Z.

Its album Meteora topped the Billboard 200 chart in 2003 and is regarded as one of the biggest indie rock records of all time.

Bennington leaves a wife, and six children from two marriages.

He is said to have struggled for years with alcohol and drug abuse, and has talked in the past about suicide as a result of being a victim of abuse as a child.

Kelise Vee Features Quata Budukusu on new single.

Most music producers have at one point in time done some actual voicing themselves, so once in a while, they step in the booth to exhibit another side of them, very few have however left the art of “cooking” music to become mainstream performing artistes.

Kelise Vee, one of the fastest rising beat makers has released a hip-hop tune that will definitely be appreciated by lovers of the genre.

The braggadocio theme of the song is typical with hip-hop; Kelis Vee and Quata have released loads of songs as producer and artiste respectively, but this is the collaboration definitely meant to ink the name Kelise Vee in the books of Ghanaian hip-hop.
