13-year old boy who had a heart transplant in March dies on first day of school


13-year-old Peyton West who survived a heart transplant in March 2017 and spent the past five months living a full and fun life is dead.

Narrating his last day on earth, his father, Corey West said 'Peyton woke up on Thursday excited for his first day of eighth grade in Goshen, Ohio. He was being goofy and the family took a photo of him smiling on their front porch. But 15 minutes later, when his older brother Ethan dropped him off at school, everything changed. He told Ethan he didn't feel well and then collapsed. Ethan carried him to the school nurse's office. An ambulance rushed him to the hospital before his mother, Melissa, joined them. The medics told Melissa West that they were quick to leave because Peyton's heart had stopped and it was a sight that no mother should see'.


Doctors tried for 2½ hours to revive him, but Peyton died at the hospital. Peyton was born November 6, 2003, with hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
