    •Illegal emigrant narrates deadly experience in desert while trying to move to Europe

    •Sight of Mediterranean sea forced me to cancel trip to Italy

    By Emmanuel Iheaka

    Twenty two years after walking through the valley of the shadow of death, in search of greener pastures, Stephen Onyekamma has remained terrified. Unlike those who by faith would confess they fear no evil when confronted with such pangs of death, reliving of his experience still sends shivers down the spines of Onyekamma.

    As he narrated his experience in the sahara desert to Saturday Vanguard, Onyekamma would intermittently pause out of traumatic effect

    How are you coping with Sober October? Or maybe yours is not-so-sober, but you feel as if you ought to be building in a midweek break? Or maybe you don’t drink anyway, so it’s no big deal either way?

    NEW DELHI: The enthusiasm to add fruit juice to carbonated drinks has come back to haunt regional drinks makers, as these products are currently subject to a GST of 28% with an additional 12% of compensation cess. They were earlier paying 12%.

    This often results in confusion among the general public and causes the frequent question: how much water should I drink daily? The easy answer is ‘well, that depends’! There really is no one-size-fits-all solution to

    With its tasteful ‘70s nudie-pic décor and big velvet booths, the inside of the Vern was always the cool place to be. But when the pandemic hit, the owners annexed their little-used parking lot attached to the building and created a fancy fenced and covered outdoor dive-bar experience.

While a few tables have gas fires in the
