A woman offered to carry her best friend’s baby, only for her to die before the child was born.

Jes Brockie offered to act as surrogate for her life-long friend Bec Arena, who suffered with fertility issues due to cystic fibrosis.

Jes, wife of Mamelodi Sundowns FC and New Zealand All Whites player Jeremy Brockie, was happy to give her best friend Bec and her husband Gareth the child that they so desperately wanted.

Sadly, Bec passed away in September so wasn’t able to meet her son Rixon James Arena, who arrived on January 20 weighing 7lb and 2oz. Bec’s tragic death devastated her husband Gareth, who now faces raising a baby on his own.

The GoFundMe page, set up by Krystal Stevens, says: ‘This process has given Bec and Gareth a gift no money can buy, it has still left them with huge ongoing expenses- medical bills, counselling fees, numerous flights to get Jess here from her home in South Africa, lawyers fees and so much more.

‘Many of these expenses were planned for however, Bec’s passing has brought additional unexpected costs and has left Gareth facing these on a sole income.’

Initially, the couple planned for Bec to be a stay at home mum, so now Gareth must take time off work which is an added financial burden.

The GoFundMe adds: ‘Bec was never one to talk about her hardships or to ask for help, even though she was battling personal struggles greater than we could ever truly understand.

‘And now, even though he is now facing this huge financial and emotional mountain on his own, Gareth is just the same.’

Gareth also has the support of the Brockies. Jes tweeted: ‘And just like that, Rixon James Arena has arrived in this world. What an amazing journey to be part of. Memories that @JRBrockie and I will treasure forecer. Thank you Bec and Gareth for letting our family travel this road with you. #Surrogacy.’

Footballer Jeremy Brockie said that he was in awe of his wife for playing her part in the ‘great journey’.

He tweeted: ‘Unbelievably proud of my wife Jessica Brockie. To give up your time and body for someone else is incredibly special.

‘It’s been such a great journey to be involved in and so glad we could do this side by side. To be able to help another family like this is so rewarding.’

All donations to the fundraiser will go directly to Gareth.

Water tank driver accuses Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Rivers

Published

Self-acclaimed Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty is currently trending on social media for the wrong reasons.

A water tank driver, Okabam John has accused singer, Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

It was gathered that the incident reportedly happened on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at about 9:40am when the driver was on duty.

Narrating his ordeal to some Civil Rights Activists on Tuesday November 24, after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital, John, a native of Elele Town in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state and an employee of Julius Berger Nigeria Limited, claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk.

According to the driver, while on duty a private car was parked close to his water filling spot. He tried notifying the driver who refused to wind down. He reportedly bent his head to talk to the driver only to discover it was Duncan Mighty.

John said that before he could speak, the singer allegedly struck his head using a traditional staff. He said the second strike was blocked with his hand. He claimed that he could not see when the singer drove off as his eyes were covered with blood.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday, one Ndubueze Obodowhuo, accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and scalp laceration.”

Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice. His post below:

“This is Mr. OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.

“According to Mr. OKABAM JOHN a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.

“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because, blood covered his eyes at that moment.

“Mr. Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.

“Mr. OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurance.”
