Mr Ibu – the man who made Africa laugh

Such was the comic genius of Nigerian actor John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, that he often didn’t even need to open his mouth to make people laugh. “I was chosen to play a doctor in a film one time and when I came to the set dressed as one, even without saying anything, all the crew just burst out laughing,” he recalled. His death at the age of 62 has left family, friends and fans of Nigeria’s film industry Nollywood across Africa in mourning. He burst onto the scene in 2004 with the movie Mr Ibu, which tells the story of the eponymous single father and his son as they journey through life, getting into a series of tricky, and hilarious, predicaments.”His facial expressions and his body were his biggest selling points,” film director Babangida Bangis, contrasting him to most comic actors who use words to make people laugh. “Mr Ibu was different as he doesn’t even have to talk to elicit laughter, as his face just like Mr Bean [Rowan Atkinson] will do the trick,” he said. Indeed, one of Mr Ibu’s most iconic scenes and the one which introduced him to African audiences, was one in which he hardly said a word. In the film Mr Ibu, he and his son were returning home from a farm where they worked and they had a single bicycle. At first, the father let his son ride the bicycle while he walked. But passers-by stopped them to ask why …

Lawmaker’s Bill, Reversing TFGM Ban in The Gambia

A bill aimed at lifting the ban on female genital mutilation (FGM) has been tabled in The Gambia’s parliament by an independent lawmaker. It was outlawed in the mainly Muslim nation in 2015 when Yahya Jammeh was president. He said it was not required in Islam. But influential Muslim clerics have been pushing for the ban to be repealed, while women’s rights activists have vowed to campaign for it to remain in place. Mr Jammeh’s 22-year authoritarian rule came to an end in 2016. More than three-quarters of Gambian females aged between 15 and 49 have undergone FGM, according to the UN. What is FGM, where does it happen and why?In the procedure’s most severe form, after removing the sensitive clitoris, the genitals are cut and stitched closed so that the woman cannot have or enjoy sex. Followers of an outspoken Muslim cleric, Abdoulie Fatty, rallied in support of the bill shortly before it was introduced in parliament on Monday. They chanted: “Female circumcision is my religious belief, Gambia is not for sale.” Last year, the cleric helped pay the fines of three women who were convicted of carrying out FGM on young girls. At the time, The Gambia Supreme Islamic Council, the main body of Muslim clerics in the country, called for the ban to be scrapped. There are different views in Islam over the practice, with some leading scholars, like those in Egypt, opposing it. The Gambian lawmaker who is championing the bill, Almammeh Gibba, said it sought …
