Brock in talks with University of West Indies to create Institute for Canada-Caribbean Studies

After years of partnering with one another on various initiatives, Brock University and the University of the West Indies (UWI) are now considering the creation of the Institute for Canada-Caribbean Studies.
The schools came together on Brock's main campus Friday, April 5 to renew two existing memorandums of understanding and to sign a new MOU that will see them begin talks related to the proposed institute.
"The signing ceremony at Brock University is a testament to the relationship we've built together over many years, and commitment to the future of Canadian-Caribbean studies," said Sir Hilary Beckles, Vice-Chancellor from UWI. Beckles highlighted the new agreement and recognized Brock University President Gervan Fearon in his opening remarks at the UWI Gala in Toronto on Saturday, April 6.

23-year old man sets neighbour’s house on fire for rejecting his s*xual advances

Eleward Sariwa, a 23-year-old man has been dragged to a Zimbabwean court for setting ablaze his neighbour’s house,who had rejected his sexual advances.

Sariwa reportedly broke into Precious Jamu’s  home, and laid down on her bed, naked, waiting for her. iHarare revealed that Sariwa’s actions had been without the consent of Jamu. She was therefore shocked to find Sariwa not only in her house but on her bed.

When she complained about Sariwa’s conduct, he insisted that he needed to have sex with her. Jamu turned down the advances and threatened to scream for help if Sariwa did not leave her house. Sariwa left but threatened to get back at her.

He then set Jamu’s kitchen hut on fire and destroyed property worth $350. Sariwa faces charges of unlawful entry and malicious damage to property. He has been remanded in custody till April 17.
