    PARIS, DECEMBER 26, 2015: (DGW) Reports reaching our Paris news desk say a certain man, aged 33 was abducted, gang-raped by three women, samples of his semen made away with and had him dumped afterwards on a roadside, DailyGlobeWatch has been reliably informed.

    The middle-aged man was reportedly abducted at gunpoint after a BMW car pulled over on the hard shoulder in Port Elizabeth area, Kwazakhele Township to be precise under  the pretext of asking for direction.

    The psychological trauma that ensued could not give the victim a chance for any arousal. The three ladies, reports say, had to force him to drink an unknown substance, had him raped in succession, made away with samples of his semen scooped in plastic bags  preserved in a cooler box and dumped him some 500km away from where he was originally abducted, our source reported.  

     

    The man was rescued and later taken to the police station and the Police in Pretoria have commenced full-scale investigations into the bizarre incident, DailyGlobeWatch can authoritatively reveal.

  • Breaking: Police arrest a man paid to sleep with 100 kids, got them infected with HIV

    27/Jul/2016 // 495 Viewers

     

    Police have arrested a man who claimed he was paid to sleep with more than 100 adolescent girls, officials said Tuesday.

    HIV-positive Eric Aniva, from the southern district of Nsanje, Malawi was arrested after he confessed during an interview to have slept with the girls as part of a traditional ritual marking their passage to womanhood, for a fee of between four and seven dollars, paid by each of their families.

    Malawi, which has one of the highest HIV infections in the world, criminalises sex with a person under the age of 16. If found guilty of underage sex, Aniva could be jailed for life.

    AFP reported that the little-known local practice lasted three days and was performed in southern Malawi by men known as "hyenas" at the request of a girl's parents after her first period.

    The report added that the ritual was believed to train girls to become good wives and to protect them from disease or misfortune that could fall on their families or their village.

    The news angered Malawian President Peter Mutharika who issued a statement ordering Aniva's arrest and calling for an inquiry into the role of the parents involved.

    Aniva should "be investigated for exposing the young girls to contracting HIV and further be charged accordingly," Mutharika added. "Harmful cultural and traditional practices cannot be accepted."

    District commissioner Gift Lapozo told AFP "Aniva was arrested on Monday after he was summoned to my office".

    Aniva confessed to being infected with HIV and sleeping with at least 100 girls without using protection in a BBC interview broadcast last week.

    "Some girls are just 12 or 13 years old, but I prefer them older," he said.

    It was unclear how long Aniva had been a "hyena".

    It was reported that sexual cleansing ritual was also performed on bereaved widows in Nsanje district to exorcise villages of evil spirits or to prevent another death occurring.

    The 40-something Aniva, who has two wives, said a "hyena" was selected by the community based on good morals and that custom did not allow him to use condoms. - AFP

  • Breaking: Igbo business man, Ikejiaku Chinedu, aged 35, killed in South Africa - NAN

    27/Jul/2016 // 3158 Viewers

     

    The Nigeria Union in South Africa on Wednesday confirmed the killing of a Nigerian businessman in Limpopo Province of South Africa on Tuesday.
    Collins Mgbo, Secretary of the Union’s chapter in Limpopo, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Polokwane, Limpopo Province, that Ikejiaku Chinedu, 35, was killed by guards of a private security firm at about 8.00p.m.

    He said that the deceased was an indigene of Ogwa, Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo and married with three children.

    “One of our members here, Ikejiaku Chinedu, was killed at the outskirts of Polokwane, Limpopo Province of South Africa.

    “Information available to us showed that guards of the security company chased and arrested him, he was beaten.

    “The autopsy result we have showed that there were bruises all over his body, showing that he was beaten to death or suffocated,” he said.

    Mgbo said the union had reported the incident to the South African police for investigation.

    “The South African police assured us of thorough investigation to ensure that justice is done.

    “We have also reported this incident to the national secretariat of our union in Pretoria,” he said.

    The president of the Union, Ikechukwu Anyene, said it had received report of the incident.

    “We have received report of this sad incident. We call on the South African police to investigate this matter and bring the culprits to book,” he said.

    Anyene said that 15 Nigerians had been killed in South Africa since the beginning of the year.

    Anyene said the union would send the report to the Nigerian Consulate for necessary action.

  • Defiant Zuma says no 'shortcut' to new S.Africa president

    28/Apr/2016 // 186 Viewers

     

    Johannesburg (AFP) - Embattled South African President Jacob Zuma Wednesday appeared to rule out resigning before his second term ends in 2019, as protesters used the anniversary of the country's first democratic polls to renew calls for him to quit.

    "If you're elected at one point, and people no longer want you, humble yourself, accept it," Zuma told thousands of supporters at a rally in northern Limpopo province to mark the 22nd anniversary of the election that brought anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela to power.

    But Zuma also warned there could be no "shortcuts" to a shake-up at the top, saying any change of government had to come through "democratic institutions, so that we can have a peaceful state where the will of the majority prevails."

    Zuma has faced a chorus of calls to step down following a flurry of scandals, most notably over his use of millions of dollars in public money to furnish his private residence with a swimming pool, amphitheatre, chicken run and other amenities.

    On Wednesday, hundreds of people demonstrated in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban to demand Zuma step aside.

    Explaining the anger directed at Zuma, Ferrial Adam, one of the organisers of the Johannesburg protest, told AFP: "It's a combination of factors but people are quite angry and they don't feel empowered, they feel disregarded by the president."

    "It's a movement with lots of diversity in terms of age, race and social background and it has the potential to grow," she added.

    The 74-year-old president, who survived an impeachment vote in parliament earlier this month with the backing of his African National Congress (ANC), struck a defiant note in his address to party faithful.

    "We worked hard to build this country as millions of South Africans. It must not be destroyed by anarchists who have no interest in our wellbeing," Zuma said, referring to a threat by his former ally turned arch foe Julius Malema to remove the government through force.

    In an interview last week with Al-Jazeera television, Malema, who heads the radical leftist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), warned: "We will run out of patience very soon and we will remove this government through a barrel of a gun".

    Municipal elections set for August 3 will test the impact of the scandals engulfing Zuma on the ANC's support.

    Analysts say that if the party, which has been in power since 1994, loses control of one or more key cities, Zuma's leadership of the party -- and of the country -- could be in jeopardy.

  • South Africa court rules Zuma should face almost 800 graft charges

    29/Apr/2016 // 249 Viewers

     

    Pretoria (AFP) - South African President Jacob Zuma should face almost 800 corruption charges that were dropped in 2009, a judge said Friday, piling further pressure on the embattled leader.

    The charges, relating to a multi-billion dollar arms deal, were dropped by the chief state prosecutor in a move that cleared the way for Zuma to be elected president just weeks later.

    "The decision... to discontinue the charges against Mr Zuma is irrational and should be reviewed and set aside," Pretoria High Court judge Aubrey Ledwaba said.

    "Mr Zuma should face the charges as applied."

    The prosecutor had justified dropping the charges by saying that tapped phone calls between senior officials in then-president Thabo Mbeki's administration showed political interference in the case.

    The recordings, which became known as the "spy tapes", were kept secret but finally released in 2014 to the main opposition party, the Democratic Alliance (DA), after a five-year legal battle.

    DA leader Mmusi Maimane said Friday's court ruling was a major blow against the president, who has faced months of criticism over various corruption scandals and the country's dire economic outlook.

    "Today is a great victory for the rule of law. Ultimately Jacob Zuma must face prosecution," Maimane said after attending the court hearing.

    "We are deeply, deeply delighted. Jacob Zuma must have... his day in court."

    The DA called for the National Prosecuting Authority to immediately revive the 783 charges of corruption, racketeering, fraud and money laundering dating back to 1999.

    But the legal wrangling is set to continue, with the ruling likely to go to appeal.

    "These charges were formally withdrawn... and as such there is no pending litigation before court against President Zuma," the presidency said in a statement.

    "The President has noted the decision of the court and will give consideration to the judgement and its consequences."

    - A weakened president? -

    The president last month lost another major legal case when the country's highest court found he violated the constitution over the use of public funds to upgrade his private residence.

    The so-called "security" work, which cost taxpayers $24 million, included a swimming pool, chicken run, cattle enclosure and an amphitheatre.

    The DA and other opposition parties attempted to impeach him, but the ruling African National Congress (ANC) used its majority to easily defeat the motion in parliament.

    Zuma has also been beset by allegations that a wealthy Indian migrant family had such influence over him that it could decide ministerial appointments.

    Pressure on the president to be ousted or to resign has grown with several veteran leaders of the party that brought Nelson Mandela to power in 1994 calling for him to step down.

    Zuma, 74, will have completed two terms in 2019 and is not eligible to run for president again, but the ANC -- which is packed with his loyalists -- could replace him ahead of the next general election.

    Last week, a commission he set up cleared all government officials of corruption over the 1999 arms deal.

    Zuma himself was accused of having accepted bribes from international arms manufacturers.

    His advisor, Schabir Shaik, was jailed for 15 years on related charges in 2005, with the judge saying there was "overwhelming" evidence of a corrupt relationship between the two.

    Shaik was released on medical parole in 2009, the year Zuma was elected president.

    Opposition parties hope to gain ground against the all-powerful ANC at local elections on August 3.

    "The judgement may not necessarily force the president to resign," Shadrack Gutto, director for the Centre for African Renaissance Studies at the University of South Africa, told AFP.

    "He will try to manoeuvre through the legal processes and so on, but it could have serious implications for the ruling party as we go to elections."

    Zuma's competency was also questioned when he sacked two finance ministers within days in December, triggering a collapse in the rand and a major withdrawal of foreign investment.

  • 14 killed in Nairobi floods and building collapse

    30/Apr/2016 // 254 Viewers

     

    Nairobi (AFP) - Torrential rainstorms in the Kenyan capital have left at least 14 people dead, police said Saturday, including at least seven crushed when a six-storey building collapsed, as rescue teams shifted rubble in a desperate search for survivors.

    One survivor was pulled from the huge pile of debris shortly after dawn, Kenya Red Cross said, some 10 hours after the building collapsed Friday night and as skies cleared after a night of ferocious storms.

    "We have lost seven people after the house collapsed last night," Nairobi police chief Japheth Koome told AFP. "We have 121 others who have been rescued and taken to hospital."

    Kenya Red Cross, who along with police and other rescue services continued to search the piles of crumbled concrete rubble, said a total of 150 households had been affected.

    Two neighbouring buildings in the densely-populated and poor Huruma neighbourhood were declared unsafe on Saturday and are being evacuated.

    In other separate incidents, two people drowned when their vehicle was swept away by storm waters in the capital's Industrial Area, another person died in floods, and four were killed when a wall collapsed, Koome added.

    Nairobi Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke, who visited the scene of the destroyed building on Saturday morning, said an investigation would look into why the two-year old building had collapsed.

    "The building went down during the heavy rains, but we still want to establish if all the procedures were followed when it was constructed," he said.

    The building collapsed at around 9:30 pm (1830 GMT) Friday following some of the heaviest downpours since the start of the rainy season.

    They have caused flooding and landslides in many areas of the city. Kenya Red Cross spokeswoman Arnolda Shiundu said the site had been "complete chaos" and teams were "still searching," assisted by a crane.

    "We don't know how many people are under the rubble, but we fear there are still several of them," she said.

    Pictures broadcast by local media showed soldiers, policemen and civilians searching through the rubble of the collapsed buildings for survivors.

    Nairobi has been in the middle of a building boom for some years but the quality of materials used and speed of construction have sometimes been called into question.

    The growing middle class has triggered an explosion in demand for housing and a rise in real estate prices in the east African capital.
