New Zealand’s PM becomes 1st World Leader to bring her Baby to UN General Assembly



On Monday, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made her debut speech at the United Nations General Assembly, and she wasn’t alone.

Accompanying Ardern was her 3-month old daughter Neve Te Aroha and her partner Clarke Gayford. The Prime Minister’s recent appearance makes her the first world leader to bring an infant to the UNGA.

During the six-day stay in New York, Ardern’s partner who put his job on hold to be a stay-at-home dad, will be Neve’s primary carer.

      women should also take note. We are our worst critic and very divisive. The power is in our hands, use it, take action and talk less. Chimamanda should also take note,

    Lol @ Buhari take note. Women are navigating all areas of their lives brilliantly and reaching full self-actualization. One day, one day a woman will be the Ooni of Ife, proudly wearing her Gele, iro and buba, sitting on the throne majestically! All the misogynists will commit suicide by then, lmao! It will be a sight to behold.

    Engoz, I second that about a female Ooni of Ife. I wish to see one in my town Arochukwu in my lifetime though one reigned as the 4th Eze Aro between the late 17th and 18 centuries. Nnenne Mgbokwo Udo Omini Oke Nnachi, referred in Arochukwu traditions,

      Don’t mind the white man, who reached Igboland and couldn’t stomach the sight of women wielding the kind of societal power and influence, that females in the United Kingdom hadn’t even begun to dream of.

      And more fool us, for choosing to sitting down like mumus to still continue drinking the colonial cool aid which was served centuries ago to totally replace our way of life. Yes the colonials brought some ideas and changes that were good (electricity was one of those wonderful introductions) but we can’t deny they had an ulterior motive in continuously enforcing the British lifestyle (including culture, dressing, system of education, etc.) on us.

      That’s why when I hear actual full-blooded Africans spouting the ignorant argument that feminism is a European construct…. I marvel in wonder. Until I remember that a generation which has chosen to be breast fed (even adulthood) on the wonderful discoveries of KFC and Drake can never be inspired to explore their own history.
