I, Lord Harare Mugabe (ju name Osato Osula) elected Ireland Zonal head am using this medium to bring to the attention of the house the series of events that led to the:
(1.) The dissolution the Ireland Zonal COE at the general IT held on the 6th of June 2012 by the Ireland Zonal head.
(2.) The indefinite suspension of
(A) Lord Laurent Cabilla ( Ju name Suba Emmanuel)- for claiming to be
acting head of Ireland Zone.
(B) Lord Malcolm X ( ju name Ogboso)- for his actions and involvement
regarding the claim of an acting head in Ireland Zone.
I solicit the house to take the time and patience to read the details of the events below that have necessitated these very crucial decisions.
Also i would like the house to ratify these decisions as quickly as possible to avoid any further division and discord in Ireland Zone.I want Ireland Zone to continue to forge ahead with all the positive agenda on the pipeline to be implemented.
24th March :
I assumed office as Ireland Zonal head after a successful election and subsequently selected my COE and EXCO. This was not an easy task based on the fact that there is not many lords in the Zone but i discovered that there is so much divison, no love and fighting between lords in the Zone. I immediately commenced work on bringing these fractions together emphasising the importance of love and fellowship for Ireland Zone to grow steadfastly and to be counted. Also how much good things we can positively accomplish together in Ireland Zone.
14th April :
First general IT. Huge Success, morale was high and all men present was in great form and ready and willing to take Ireland Zone to the next level together.
On invitation , some lords went over to celebrate the arrival of Lord Katanga’s baby girl. I received a call the following morning regarding some public order offenses ( i.e shouting, screaming, fighting disturbing the entire neighborhood) between the Zonal CP and ju name Ozabor Abella. I immediately called my chairman and asked the COE to look into this as this type of in disciplined behavior will not be tolerated by this regime.
19th April :
COE Meeting attended by these elders: ju name fawaz, ju name Baski, ju name Ogboso, and Ireland Head to look into the gross misconduct of the lords concerned.
Both lords were invited to give account of the events, ju name Abella verbally insulted the chairman, the head and COE. Ju name Fawaz almost lost it but had to restrain himself. Based on all these gross put together the COE reached a unanimous decision to suspend the CP and ju name Abella pro rata on their part in this gross misconduct. The house closed and my chairman went to Nigeria for nearly 6 weeks without communicating with the zone despite all attempts to reach him.
24th April :
I received a call from the national crier concerning the decision reached at the national level that all zones must pay the sum of 110,000n naira (€550) towards the national secretariat and that any zone that failed to pay before the deadline would be in serious trouble. I tried to contact My chairman but to no avail. When i assumed office there was no owo in the purse,
01st May :
luckily i had some naira in Nigeria and so i made the transfer and quickly paid this levy of 110,000 naira(about €550) with my own personal cash with the intention that i will be reimbursed by the zone when the time is right. There is still a balance of €350 owing to me by the Zone as the zone has only been able to reimburse me €200.
5th May :
Emergency general IT, chairman is still in Nigeria , not a single word from chairman but IT went well. Implemented the decision as prescribed by the COE in accordance with the Ireland Zonal bye-laws, suspended the office of the CP for 1 month plus a fine of €100, and ju name Abella for verbally abusing chairman, COE and head and not showing up for this crucial IT was suspended indefinitely.
I also informed the house of the fact that in have paid €550 on behalf of Ireland Zone for the national secretariat and that the Zone is still owing me €350 euros. The house was very happy and thanked me very much and i was very happy that we were able to fulfill this obligation too.
25th May :
I, the head organized a lords night out (arena style) didn’t spend any money from the zonal purse, used my own owo. This outing was very successful, a lot bonding and laugh… brilliant. We all had a nice time and this initiative was highly complemented by all the lords in the zone and we are actually looking forward to a repeat.
Chairman appeared at this gathering, we talked and said to give me a ring for update concerning the Zonal affairs in the six weeks that he was away but he never did.
3rd June :
Paintballing activities arranged for all lords and their Iyawo. Very interesting outdoor sport in the summer to further strengthen the bonding and more love in the zone. Unfortunately the weather was horrible, lashing rain for 2 days solid, had to postpone till 2 weeks time, we have the place booked already so hopefully weather will be great by then!
03 June :
CP office that was suspended automatically reinstated after 1 Month, €100 fine to be collected soon.
05 June :
COE meeting only a few selected Elders was notified, couldn’t understand why but found out later that it was a deliberate attempt to witch hunt the head and topple the regime, didn’t hear anything from the chairman about this COE , ju name suba informed me about this COE the day before. At the COE One of the elders asked the chairman why he was not officially invited to the COE, chairman almost started a fight, i am still in the dark, however i later realized that this was calculated attempt to ridicule me as the head by the COE and the allegations i could not understand because all the accusations was in the 6 weeks period that my chairman was in Nigeria and did not contact the Zone at all, he has succeeded in poisoning and polluting a few members of my COE and bullying the others and the elders shouting back almost leading to a fight, it was a chaotic COE orchestrated by ju name Ogboso (chairman) and ju name Suba (elder). It is an absolute disgrace to the NBM that i have dedicated nearly 18 years of my life to promote. NBM that i love dearly and will continuously fight to maintain and protect. It was really a childish witch hunting charade by my Chairman and Ju name Suba and these were some of the allegations:
(1.) Why did i the head pay €550 (110,000) to the National secretariat fund without rubbing mind with the chairman who had gone AWOL for 6 weeks and we have a deadline to meet?
(2.) As a head i do not have the right to suspend ju name Abella without the chairman? forgetting to recall that a COE was called specifically for this and a decision reached.
(3.)That as the head of the Zone i do not have the right to organize a lords night out or paint balling games without the approval of the Chairman and the COE!
I was really disappointed and ashamed at this lack of orientation and caliber of some men in Ireland Zone.
When i realized that it was going to be messy and more than likely lead into a fight, i had to find an escape route as i didn’t want to belittle myself and go down that road with them as the head of Ireland Zone and also based on my standing as a professional in the society. I just couldn’t, would be too costly for me.
6th June :
Emergency general IT.
(1.) Dissolved the COE
(2.) Suspended indefinitely ju name Suba Emmanuel and ju name Ogboso
for their unlawful actions and creating tension and chaos in Ireland Zone.
At the moment i am the rightfully elected head and my EXCO and some Lords who have seen the good work that we have been doing and would like to continue, and an unlawful self proclaimed acting head ju name Suba.
I have engaged with all men not to resolve to any form of confrontation while my decision is been reviewed to be ratified by the house.
Please we need some urgent attention and intervention by the house so as not to let the present situation get out of control.
Lord Harare Mugabe,
As “co-ordinators” of both Ireland and Manchester zones, I Lord Amilcar Cabral, Head- London Zone make the following declarations;
Following instructions from my NH, we have swiftly convened an investigative committee to deal with the present unrest in Ireland Zone.
I spoke with Lord Harare Mugabe (Ireland Head) about this issue yesterday and conveyed the NH instructions that “London zone” investigate and report back to National on this issue.
I also instructed that whilst this was on-going, it would NOT be desirable for any zonal official to put-out any info in the public domain with regards to this issue as it would ONLY go to increase the dis-trust presently existing between the warring parties.
ALL communications regarding the zone were to be approved by “us” as co-ordinators before being made public.
As things stand, I am somewhat disappointed at the choice of Lord Mugabe to dis-regard this instruction.
Whilst our investigative committee is willing to hear from ALL axemen who may have vital info relating to this issue, I would also ask ALL men to allow us exercise our duties and report back to the NH.
Pls disregard any further postings on this issue except approved by us the co-ordinators. Na peace we dey fine…and too much talk talk can ONLY lead to more dis-unity.
I am my brothers keeper,
Lord Amilcar Cabral
Head, London Zone
