Oshodi chieftaincy controversy and the moral tale of Icarius and the Sun

Mythology, folktales and even stories from religious books are full of warnings against excessive pride by individuals, groups or organisations. Also known as hubris, there are enough lessons to be learnt from literary figures such as Captain Ahab in Herman Melville’s Moby Dick and Satan in John Milton’s Paradise Lost regarding the dark themes of vanity, ambition, power, insolence and disdain.

It has felled many leaders who planned grandly but failed miserably by overestimating their knowledge, foresight and ability. The origin of this terminology is from Greek mythology.

Vandals spray the words ‘paedo home’ on wall of Queen Elizabeth’s home

Police have begun investigation after vandals spray painted the words 'paedo home' on the walls of Queen Elizabeth II's home in Scotland.. The outer walls of the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh were pictured on Monday, January 17 spray-painted with two defamatory remarks.

A US court last week ruled that Virginia Giuffre, who claims that Prince Andrew abused her when she was 17, could proceed with legal action against him.
