THEY MADE THE NEWS LAST WEEK
Bob Banjo: The Nigerian man who set off Ebola alarm bells at the Mandeville Regional Hospital was all over the media as he recounted his ordeal and declared that Jamaica was not ready to deal with the deadly virus.
Crime: Three killed in the gritty east Kingston community of Rockfort, another triple murder in Canterbury, St James, and another triple murder in Bog Walk, St Catherine, moved crime back to the front pages, despite official figures still showing murders down this year when compared to the corresponding period last year.
John Holt: The death of the musical icon put a damper on some of the National Heroes Day celebrations as Jamaicans mourned a man whose voice satisfied the soul for more than 50 years.
Dwayne Vaz: Those in the know in Central Westmoreland say they were not surprised, but the young businessman?s victory in the contest to determine the People?s National Party?s standard-bearer in the constituency was a shocker for many.
Louis Farrakhan: The Nation of Islam leader?s visit to the island which culminated with the 19th anniversary celebrations of the Million Man March attracted its share of controversy, but it was the Government?s decision to deny entry to Trinidadian cleric Yasin Abu Bakr then spend $4 million for a private plane to take him home which was the talk of the week.
