Grammy-nominated Jamaican singer, Jah Cure, whose real name is Siccature Alcock, declared to his over seven hundred thousand fans on Instagram in a series of photos and video his love for the motherland and the good work he is doing there.  Cure alongside the Governor of Nairobi, Mike Sonko, 500 soldiers, 200 police and the people of Nairobi participated in a clean-up exercise. The theme for this clean-up exercise was #MyWasteMyResponsibility.

“I will be here my brothers and sisters to spearhead the project. I will be your leader for a day in cleaning up Nairobi because this is the cleanup movements we are on. We are on a mission to keep our environment clean; me and the Governor and the rest of the team, so stay tuned. See you there; we have a mission to do”, Jah Cure said

“The price of greatness is responsibility”, Jah Cure declared.

This is not the first time Jah Cure visited Kenya. Cure said of his latest visit in Kenya that he’s happy to be there and feels a connection to Kenya. Other than the clean-up activity, Cure began the first leg of his worldwide tour titled “The Royal Soldier Tour” where he headlined the Umoja Splash Festival in the country.

Of his  July 6th performance in Kenya Cure said: “HISTORY WAS MADE IN AFRICA. BIGGEST SOLD OUT EVENTS IN KENYA OVER 20 YEARS IN THE INDUSTRY OF REGGAE MUSIC!! I'M SO PROUD TO BE A VESSEL.. THANK YOU JAH. THANK YOU MY FANS. THANKS FOR THE LOVE OF THE PEOPLE.”

Cure announced that his next album will be released on August 30, 2019, this is titled “Royal Soldier”. He hopes to earn his second Grammy nomination for this album. Jah Cure’s inspiration for this album is African historical figure Mansa Musa.  For those who are not aware of this historical figure, Mansa Musa was the tenth Mansa (conqueror) of the wealthy West African Islamic Mali Empire. He is said to be one of the richest people in history (if not the richest) and conquered 24 cities. This album was actually set to be released in 2018, having collaborations with Tory Lanez, Melanie Fiona, and Phyllisia Ross. But this ended up being pushed forward to 2019.

Jah Cure will next visit the island of Seychelles on July 13, 2019, for his second stop on his Royal Soldiers Tour.

Jamaicans no longer need a visa to travel to the Republic of Namibia for business or tourism

The Prime Minister left Jamaica for a working visit to Namibia and the emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) Summit in South Africa. He arrived Sunday July 22/2018 on his birthday.

One day in his arrival, he broker a deal to have Jamaicans travel visa-free for business and travel to Namibia. The Prime Minister explains that, the Governments of Jamaica and Namibia this morning (July 23) agreed to a visa waiver programme.

It’s the first of several agreements between both countries, as I began a full day of discussions with the Namibian President HE Dr. Hage Geingob.
Previously, Jamaica unilaterally waived visa requirements for Namibians entering the country as an expression of solidarity and support during Namibia’s liberation struggle. Namibia today reciprocated this action.
During a joint press conference with President Geingob in the Namibian capital Windhoek, I noted that both countries have now cemented a deeper bond.

Jamaicans traveling to the Republic of Namibia for business or tourism will not be required to obtain a visa.

My official visit to Namibia is of strategic importance. We have two beautiful countries, but we scarcely ever get to enjoy the beauty of our countries. We need to encourage travel between our two countries for tourism. I’ve welcomed the announcement by the President of the waiver of visa requirements for Jamaicans; Jamaica had long ago abolished visa requirements for Namibians.

Jamaica and Namibia are also working to secure a stronger relationship in several areas including trade, investment, banking, sports and culture. There will be greater opportunities for the people of both countries. I think that there is great opportunity for us to continue our exchange of people. We can build a strong human capital base in education.

We welcome Namibians to study at our Universities. We welcome Namibians to come and train with us in athletics and sporting endeavours. We believe that there can be significant opportunities between our two countries for trade.

Namibian President Geingob and I have recommitted to ensuring the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) group remains.
I believe we are stronger together and the liberation struggle may have ended for many Africans but the new struggle is now for our economic independence and our economic liberation and it makes no sense for us to separate on this matter.
