A woman went viral on social media after a video surfaced of her mercilessly kicking a toddler. The woman, identified as Nthabiseng Nhlapo, reportedly targeted the child to spite the little one’s father. The shocking video circulated on Twitter, showing the child on the floor being kicked multiple times, until he eventually burst into tears.
The distressing 13-second clip garnered widespread outrage on Twitter, leading to calls for Nthabiseng Nhlapo’s arrest for child abuse. Some individuals even suggested that community action would be more fitting than involving law enforcement. Rapper Gigi Lamayne offered to cover legal expenses for any lawyer willing to prosecute Nthabiseng for her actions.
Tragically, it has been reported that the woman was found dead this morning, in what appears to be a suicide due to the consequences of her actions.

Canada Opens New Migration Path for Non-Canadian Artisans
Addressing Skilled Trades Shortage
The Canadian Government has introduced a novel migration route aimed at welcoming skilled trades workers like welders, carpenters, and plumbers from countries including Nigeria. This initiative targets the pressing scarcity of skilled tradespeople within Canada.
The announcement, titled “Canada announces the first-ever Express Entry invitations for newcomers with experience in the trades,” was released by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Revamping Express Entry System
Under the revised plan, Canada’s Express Entry System is being revamped to offer a streamlined pathway for individuals with expertise in critical trades. The IRCC has introduced changes to Express Entry through category-based selection.
These modifications are geared towards alleviating labor shortages that align with specific economic objectives, welcoming individuals with relevant work experience and language proficiency to apply for permanent residency.
Express Entry System
Express Entry serves as an online platform administered by the Canadian Government, granting permanent residence status to skilled foreign workers. This system is accessible to those seeking permanent immigration through avenues such as the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and a section of the Provincial Nominee Program.
Key Points about the Express Entry Invitations
The inaugural Express Entry invitations targeting trades expertise aim to address the robust demand for skilled professionals and fill vacant positions vital to the nation’s economic progress. The initial wave of applications focuses on candidates with trades proficiency in welding, carpentry, and plumbing. This strategic move bolsters Canada’s construction sector by attracting requisite skills across the nation.
Demonstrating Canada’s Commitment
Category-based selection reflects Canada’s dedication to attracting top-tier global talent and supporting the demand for tradespeople crucial to the economy. These selection rounds based on specific categories will continue throughout the year, running in parallel with general invitation rounds. Further details regarding these initiatives will be communicated in due course.
The determination of these categories followed extensive consultations with provincial and territorial stakeholders, partners, the public, and a comprehensive assessment of labor market requirements. A comprehensive list of eligible job categories for these new selections is also readily available.

- Proficiency in the French language
- Work experience in fields such as:
- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines
