      • SO IF SHE FETCHES WATER WHAT IS THE NEWS ABOUT THIS? IF THERE WAS NO WATER
        OVER THERE LET HER GO AND FETCH!!!!! NA ME WAN FETCH WATER FORAM!

  1. It is not show off, they live in my city in seattle and they genuinely care. They are billionaires but very down to earth people.
    I know it is hard to believe people can stoop low from their status, but believe me they mingle with everyone, you see them around town in stores doing what regular people do and live like normal people do. I can tell you she is not doing this for photo op. This is just now they are. Simply Rich and humble

  2. Let Nigerians sample out Patience Jonathan’s arrogance and public gaffes when she was just an appendaged wife of a President and compare her penchant for attention with Melinda Gates humble dismeanure in her interactions with ordinary poor people of rural Malawi. Patience even out of ignorance thinks being a wife of an Ex President still reserves her some previlidge to gate-crash into security areas of Airports in Nigeria. Melinda Gates humble story tells how ignorance and illiteracy combined can push someone of rural background like Patience Jonathan not to appreciate the values of intelligentia in all of the people she insulted while her Mumu Husband was the President of Nigeria.

  3. @Maureen, if u actually knw her dat close, den ur testimony about her stands taller dan wateva thing any oda person might say here. I dnt knw her dat much, but it seems 2me her concern is genuine.

  4. Good 4her,very down to earth,she is cool.
    If it were to be a nigerian now,say maybe jonathan wife patience or senate president wife,na abomination to do such a tin.
    Nigerians are too proud.

    Melinda don’t ever come to naija o,cause if men hear your worth,trust me,na kidnapping tins.

    Good Lady,she must af learnt to remain herself probably after she got married to bill gates,cos they don’t show off.

  5. seriously bill nd his wife re d most generous nd humble rich couple in d world . Dis is not a mata of photo op.i believe she is doing it nt bcus of how rich she is bt she knws wat it feels like not 2 be rich nd it a good thing bringing urself 2 d lowest lame. Welcome 2 africa bill

  6. if you think is photo opp go and do your own. which Nigerian with one million in his account will do this? don’t critized please go and do same to someone and see how they will fill.

  7. People with her kind of heart are very few and rare.
    Depite her class ,by chosing to mix with the poor and stay with them rather Than with rich and classy ,the woman is a down to earth person .
    Imaging her worth $85bn and she decided to stay in a poor family’s house ,help them fetch water and wash dishes .
    Unlike the wives of our corrupt political looters.

  8. We black people always has this black thinking..Bill Gates wife has been using electric cook, maid,living Good life in America. So coming to Africa..she was just doing that for funs, far from simplicity..America people has a culture and humanright is respected which is controlled by their Government.

    Africa women grew up fetch water and scrubing the floor with their hand and when God eleviate them,
    you dont expect her to be fatching the same water carry it on her head when she can affort to buy a car or a maid that can do it for her, to save her time and stress…

    In America, house help or maid raign more…@BOMDEOBAKU..stop speaking Evil to our former first lady and we should learn to give respect to whom respect is due no matter the his/her earthnic, cultural and Educational background.

    We adapt this English from Another country forgeting who we are.. Germany man hardly speak English because they are proud of their Language and we Nigerians believe that if i speak English very well that shows that i’m highly Enducated..Nigeria mentality….

    Goodluck wife stood by him all the way and there is a say that for every successful man there is a strong woman behind.. Nigerians with big mouth for critics….English is not the only Language to communicate but the message spoken should be taking seriously not capitalizing it was because she is an illitrate as if wisdom is from Education..Wisdom is from God..

    • @Ralph, your submissions in English language really exposed how least you disrespect the rules of English grammar. I’d have adviced you wrote in your local language for better clearity of thought rather, than this lopsided and illogical statements strewed up here. Pls. next time, write in your local dialect Ok!

  9. They are seriously good couple. In South Africa where i reside, they came and renovated a clinic @ Hillbrow and increased the salaries of all the staffs in that clinic so people we have good and bad people. She and the husband are ginuely good helpers.

  10. @ Obi, don’t mind them, ordinary local govt chairman, a senior police officer will be carrying their bags. Even if it is photo op, how many so called celebrities can do it.

  11. I THINK SHE SHOULD USE HER MONEY TO SET UP SOCIAL SERVICE FOR AFRICA, AND SET UP A BUSINESS THAT WOULD KEEP PEOPLE BUSY .

    HELP US GET RID OF ALL THE SLUMS IN AFRICA , BUILD THE LOW COST HOUSING HERE AND THERE IN AFRICA.

    SPEND HER MONEY ON ELECTRICITY SO THAT , THERE WOULD BE NO MORE BLACKOUT.

    BECAUSE , GOING TO FETCH WATER AND LIVE WITH VILLAGERS TO TAKE PHOTO IS NOT WHAT WE NEED .

    WE NEED SOMEONE WHO WILL HELP US LOOK INTO SOME OF OUR PROBLEM.

  12. Seriously that wasnt a joke I knew the woman very well she is too humble not regarding how wealthy they are I assure you non nigeria woman can do that even non nigeria local gov chairman do such a ting

  13. Melinda is just a person who do not value things of the world like nigeria woman who love worshiping money and other rest of imbecilities they pondered to be so melinda keep it up

  14. I think dis woman is really like Jesus our saviour, who left his golden throne and came down to earth to be d son of an ordinary poor carpenter. if you call dis photo op, den what Jesus did is also a foto op. I strongly believe dat d poor people she came across must never remain dsame just as christ affected the lives of everyone who came his way. let’s learn to appreciate a kind gesture and a total act if humility. an average Nigerian worth 10million naira finds it difficult to pick calls talk more of talking visiting the poor. our pastors, Rev fathers, Bishops and clerics can not do dis in Nigeria bcos we believe d impoverished people are witches. God give me the mind to be as loyal as dis wen u elevate me.

  15. Aphalantphopic has never as help any country development in Africa and world at large.lest löok to better and new way which can help to develop our country.

  16. The Whites naturally are humble cox they understand it’s a vital rule of life by God 4 a man 2 succeed.
    U know,I just wonder if they’ll ever be a tIme the entire black human race would really see the need to imbibe this great Godly character..
    Call it whatever you like,Mrs.Melinda Gate’s living her life with her husband happily here on earth,,why can’t we pick the good side if them & leave the negatIve ones?
    When you live the life of a traveller,you’ll understand a whole lot of things though it’s optional for each & everyone of us to do the right thing or not!
    For those who say it’s a photo op,I laugh cox I wonder weather it’s her first time of taking photos in her life when am certain there’s no world best camera or photographer she can’t have at her call.
    Life usually goes in the opposite direction & anyone who can really balance it like both of them are doing should be emulated without sentiments cox it’s not a child’s play to do so. As two things defines a man: his altitude when he has nothing & his altitude when he has everything! At this level of fufillment or achievements you hardly can pretend that long.
    For this reason,the Whites’ll always be greater & better than us blacks especially we in this part of the world Nigeria,,until we learn to live life selflessly without the I factor always,!
    Onye nwere nti,ya’nuru,,,,o gwula’m n’onu,,,!

  17. For Melinda& Bill Gates my first wish for them above every other thing is Life Eternal in Christ Jesus. I desire for them that they be Born Again if they have not so this earthly riches can be translated and consolidated for them in heaven IJN. Like Jude said “this is like Jesus who left his golden throne and came down to earth”. With all humility Jude permit me to yet say this is still an understatement. The Bible said no human heart have yet being able to conceive of the heavenly glory. In Revelation 5 there was silence in Heaven because Rev 5:3 And no one in the heaven, or on the earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book, or to look thereon.
    Rev 5:4 And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open the book, or to look thereon:
    Rev 5:5 and one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not; behold, the Lion that is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath overcome to open the book and the seven seals thereof. Halleluyah
    Just imagine if Christ had changed his mind, the whole world would have remain doomed. Jude thank God for Melinda but sincerely Jesus love is just uncomparable. It is simply Divine
