A five-year-old girl who was killed when a
tree trunk being used as a rope swing fell
on top of her had begged her mother for one
last go on her favourite ride.
Alexia Walenkaki, who would have been
six on Saturday, was crushed when the play
equipment in a council-run playground in
Mile End snapped and fell.

Police say Alexa went into cardiac arrest
after the tree fell at around 5:30pm on
Friday and died around an hour later.
Her mother, Vida Kwotuah from Poplar,
said she believed Alexia would still be alive
if the playground equipment had been
checked properly.

She told BBC London News: “Looking at the
log itself it is very rotten. Surely if the play
equipment had been checked then that log
would not have been there. And if it was
there it would have been a much stronger
one.”

She described the moment it happened: “She
was so happy, playing and I was sitting
there watching her the whole time.
“I saw the log falling so I ran over there but
when I got there she was already on the
floor.”

Ms Kwotuah said it has been “tough”
without Alexia and she misses her: “Its
been tough. You go into the bathroom, you
see her toothbrush, her toothpaste, its hard.
Its 3 o’clock, I would be picking up from
school.

“Alexia was a little strong girl, she was
likeable, everyone who met her fell in love
with her. I want people to remember her
for that. An investigation has been launched into the accident by London police and the Health and Safety Executive.

In a statement, Tower Hamlets Council said:
“A joint investigation is being carried out
into the circumstances of the incident by
the police and the Health and Safety
Executive and at this stage we cannot make
any further comment.”

'Little boy' proposes to white 'grandmother'

In the photos making the rounds online, the young man apparently in his early twenties is seen placing a ring on the finger of his purported lover who equally looks octogenarian.

Photos of a young black man proposing to his old white lover have gone viral online, making some people suspect that the young man must have been compelled by some material gains to venture into intimacy with a woman old enough to be his grandmother.

Currently, the actual nationality of the young man is unclear. While some news outlets refer to him as a Nigerian, other reports say he is from Uganda.

In the photos making the rounds online, the young man apparently in his early twenties is seen placing a ring on the finger of his purported lover who equally looks octogenarian.

'Little boy' proposes to white 'grandmother'

Young Africa men and women engaging in intimate relationships with white women and men respectively is a new trend which young Africans who intend to acquire nationalities in western countries are using to achieve their aims.

Similar stories have emerged recently, and it seems the trend will continue as long as the desire to settle in western countries, coupled with interest of white folks in young Africans continue to heighten.
