Vitale Hotel responds to the mistreatment of the prolific professor Ngugi Wa Thiong'o at the Hotel on November 10, 2006. As one of the owners of the Hotel Vitale and Americano restaurant, I want to publicly apologize for the treatment Professor Ngugi wa Thiong'o received from one of our employees on November 10. While this employee has a good work history and worked quite closely with Willie Brown when he was doing his radio talk show in our circular lounge for nine months, the truth is that this employee "pre-judged" and disrespected the Professor by assuming he was not a guest in the hotel.

The corpse of a Bostwana man stolen by two Frenchmen was finally reburied in Bostwana after 170 years. Historians believe the 27-year-old man, who was given a christian burial with military honours, died of natural causes and was stolen from his grave by two celebrated French taxidermists, Jules and Eduoard Verraux. His corpse was exhibited in a Parisian shop for the next 50 years before being sold to a Spanish naturalist, who later bequeathed the remains to a museum in the town of Banyoles, near the Spanish city of Barcelona.

Scholar alleges inhuman treatment of Nigerians in France. "I was a passenger on board Air France, flight AF 858 from Paris to Lagos on January 20, 2000. At about 10.30 a.m., before take-off, someone drew our attention to the groans of a Nigerian who was being tied with a strong rope to his seat in a screened-off area at the back of the plane. Many of us went to see what was happening. It was an awful sight."
