Documenting the journey of a Cameroonian filmmaker
For those who are not aware of the current phone-hacking investigations gripping the Murdoch Empire (which includes; The Times, The Sun, News of the World, Fox News, etc), here’s a low-down.
British tabloid newspaper, News of the World, a subsidiary of the Murdoch Empire was found guilty of hacking into the phones of several innocent British citizens in their disgraceful quest for news. (Phew! I could win the price for longest sentences.) To cut a long story short, Rupert Murdoch and his cohorts were summoned and questioned by the UK sports and culture select committee (just a bunch of MPs who think they are so important).
Anyways, during his questioning, an ordinary protester (citizen), somehow breached through the very tight security and attacked the all-powerful Rupert Murdoch with pie. Pie???
The best part of the video is his wife who jumps up and slaps the attacker. I just loved that. She instinctively defended her husband. You go girl!
Hmm, politics is a dirty business. His reign is about to be brought down. In the words of Cameroonian legend Lapiro de Mbanga, “Jalousie pipo dem go do wandas oh mama.”
WHAT’S YOUR TAKE?
