    Sheep In South Africa gives birth to 'half human half beast'

    Superstitious villagers have been living in fear since a sheep gave birth to this creature that was said by elders to be half-human half-beast and 'sent by the devil'.

    Many of the 4,000 residents and farmers of Lady Frere in Eastern Province, South Africa, were convinced that bestiality and witchcraft had led to the birth of the creature.

    The panic got so great that the Eastern Cape Department of Rural Development sent out experts to carry out tests after pictures of it spread like wildfire through the community.

    Chief Director of Veterinary Services Dr Lubabalo Mrwebi admitted that at first glance the lamb which was born dead did resemble a human being but was not part human.

    Dr Mrwebi said: 'We can confirm this not a hoax photo but that the severely deformed lamb was born by a sheep in Lady Frere this week which at a glance resembles a human form.

  • ETHIOPIA: ARK OF COVENANT REPORTED STOLEN BY CHURCH AUTHORITIES

    Axum | The Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, His Holiness Abune Mathias, announced this morning that the most prized biblical treasure in the world, the Ark of Covenant, was stolen last night from the catacombs of the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion.  The guardians of the artefact were allegedly put to sleep through the use of chemical weapons, before the robbers entered the crypt and stole the precious Holy item.

    The criminal operation was reportedly executed by a team of 12 to 16 highly-trained professionals who travelled aboard two black military helicopters. They landed less than 500 meters away from their objective after allegedly arriving from the East. The men were dressed in black military-style uniforms and seemed to function as a well coordinated army unit. They were equipped with night-vision equipment and armed with high caliber weapons, giving them an incredible advantage over the local security forces.

    The 11 guards and armed volunteers present on the site to defend the Ark were neutralized by the thieves, using some high technology grenades that released a rare opium-based soporific gas. The  robbers then went into strenuous labor, using jackhammers and explosives to enlarge the corridors in various locations inside the catacombs  leading to the Ark, in order to be able to remove the large chest from its underground vault.

    The entire operation was over in less than an hour, an incredibly short time considering the number of obstacles that had to be overcome. This amazing efficiency suggests that the thieves had repeated the operation and had carefully prepared their crime.

    The Ethiopian Orthodox Church claims to possess the Ark of the Covenant in a chapel in the small town of Axum, in their country’s northern Highlands. It arrived nearly 3,000 years ago, they say, and has been guarded by a succession of virgin monks who, once anointed, are forbidden to set foot outside the chapel grounds until they die. No one except the Guardians are ever allowed to see the Ark, not even the Patriarch of the Church.
    The story is told in the Kebra Negast (in Ge’ez language, Glory of the Kings), Ethiopia’s chronicle of its royal line: the Queen of Sheba, one of its first rulers, traveled to Jerusalem to benefit from King Solomon’s wisdom; on her way home, she bore Solomon’s son, Menelik. A few years later, Menelik went to visit his father, and on his return journey was accompanied by the firstborn sons of some Israelite nobles—who, unbeknown to him, stole the ark and carried it with them to Ethiopia.
     
    When Menelik learned of the theft, he reasoned that since the ark’s frightful powers hadn’t destroyed his retinue, it must be God’s will that it remain with him.  It was then presumably kept in the islands of Lake Tana for about four hundred years and finally taken to Axum, where it was kept safe for more than two thousand years.
     
    The disappearance of the Ark is certainly dramatic news for the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, as much of its prestige came from the possession of the relic and many of its rituals were centered on it. His Holiness Abune Mathias was visibly emotional when he made the announcement many of the journalists and faithfuls present for the press conference, burst into tears when they heard the news.

  • Drivers’ discipline a must to reduce traffic accident

    Ethiopian vehicle owners told to examine the behavior of their drivers before they hired them, Sheger FM reported.

    Ethiopia is among the countries said to host a largest number of traffic accident victims. Over 4300 people dies because of traffic accidents a year.

    Worried about such grave incidences, the Federal Transport Authority on Tuesday told over 300 public transport and loading truck owners to “examine the behavior of their drivers well before they are hiring them”.

    Transport Associations, board members and managers have attended the consultation event today.

    Dilargachew Lemma, Road Safety Awareness Expert at the Authority was quoted by the radio station as saying, “The government alone cannot solve the problem; you too have to take care and share a slice in reducing the damages, injuries and deaths caused by traffic accidents”.

    Around 68 percent of accidents occurred in quality roads and highways, which are highly attributed to the disciplinary problems with the drivers, said the Expert.

    Data from the Addis Abeba Trade Bureau indicates that 90 percent of the accidents occurring in the city can be blamed on faulty driving.

    Pedestrians can be held responsible for four percent of the accidents, with other factors including road usage problems, weather conditions and the vehicles’ technical standard.

    Growing concern about traffic accidents is forcing some in the transportation sector to focus on accident avoiding techniques of driving, called defensive driving, and post-accident insurance mechanisms. One such institutional mechanism is carried out by the Ethiopian Heavy

    Truck Drivers Association that trains its members and motivates them to have life insurance coverage.

    According to the World Health Organization report, published in April 2014, traffic accidents in Ethiopia account for the deaths of 37.28 persons per 100,000. This is 2.77 percent of the total deaths in the country, placing Ethiopia 12th in the world.

    Kenya’s death rate from traffic accidents according to the same report stands at 19 persons per 100,000, whereas it is only two persons per 100,000 die from road accidents in England.

  • Pilot mistakenly plays her explicit video

    While most airlines provide an endless stream of movies andTV shows to keep flyers occupied,a South African airline female pilot,identified as Patience Thusi recently made headlines when she mistakenly played her own private material,a video of her bathing instead of a movie.

     

    The embarrassing video which she insisted was recorded for fun by her boyfriend has landed her in trouble as the airline intends to temporarily suspend her from her duties whilst she is on half salary.

     

    ”I really apologize for the mix up it wasn’t my intention to be honest,to those 125 passengers who were on-board please have a heart and forgive me,I’m truly sorry I promise that will never happen again”, said Patience.

     

    According to a report,some na_ughty, mostly male passengers were seen glued on their plane TV screens having a ‘dosage’ for the long journey,busy recording with their mobile phones.

    All hell broke loose when the video was immediately reposted on YouTube by one of the passengers and the matter reached the management in the blink of an eye.

    ”We didn’t expect that from her as she is the one of our most decent staff members, unfortunately she is more likely to be charged for public indec_ency as well. Although she insists it was a mistake,police don’t usually care whether it was done out of a mistake or not”,said the South African Airways spokesperson,Mr Edward Thompson.

  • Unnamed Ethiopian maid in viral Kuwait video: I wasn’t attempting suicide

    An Ethiopian maid who survived a seven-story fall in Kuwait has said she was attempting to save herself rather than be “killed inside that apartment away from people’s eyes”.

    The maid was filmed by her employer as she hung from a window ledge last Thursday – the video quickly went viral.

     “Hold me, hold me”, the domestic worker can be heard crying out in the video. The employer can be heard replying, “Crazy, come” but did not help the woman.

    A moment later, the domestic worker lost her grip on the window and fell from the building, landing on what appeared to be a small building with a soft roof that cushioned her fall.

    “I wasn’t trying to commit suicide, I was trying to escape from the woman who tried to kill me,” the unnamed maid said in a video posted by Ethiopian media this weekend. She was speaking from hospital where she is being treated for a broken arm.

    The Kuwaiti woman was arrested for not helping the Ethiopian maid, who was rescued by paramedics and rushed to hospital.
