  • Man Waited YEARS To Have Sex With Bride. Then He Learns She’s Having Another Man’s...

    - A new husband got a huge shock after he thought his wife-to-be had been faithfully celibate throughout their courtship.

    - Apparently the reason for that was because they were both devout Christians.

    - It turns out that after they got married, she was found to be pregnant with another man's child

    The new husband said that only weeks after celebrating their marriage vows, his wife announced that she was pregnant - four months' pregnant!

     

    He says that he can only assume that she had been unfaithful, as he swears that he kept up his end of the deal and remained a virgin - as he expected she would.

    It has not been reported the nationality of the couple, but there are not many cultures in which this extreme form of 'celibacy before marriage' still exist.

    The husband has said that trust has been broken and he is considering opting out of the new marriage due to the lack of faith in his spouse and his extreme religious beliefs.

    There are many men in this world who have taken on their beloved's children by other fathers and brought them up as their own, but this is still taboo to others.

     

    It would be interesting to find out the outcome of this complicated story.

  • Ethiopia’s gov’t spokesman decried the election of Trump to lead the U.S

    Ethiopia’s newly sworn in government spokesman, Negeri Lencho, said the election of Donald Trump is not good both for his country and for the African continent as a whole and has described him as ‘an extremely neo- liberalist.’ According to him, Trump is ‘always inward looking’ with less care for the rest of the world.

    “I don’t think the election of Trump will benefit Africa,” Negeri said adding that he was wishing Secretary Hillary Clinton could win the 2016 US election. “First, he is only interested in trade deals that only benefit the United States. Second, his immigration policy could affect thousands of Ethiopians who live in the United States. And finally, his political tactics are dangerous.”

    According to Negeri, Tump may change some of his hard- line policies once he occupies the White House in January. He has described the current U.S- Ethiopian relations as ‘very good’ and ‘longstanding.’

  • Brazilian gang hacks and leaks nude photos of female police officer in revenge

    In what seems to be a crude revenge, a criminal gang in Brazil has leaked nude images of a female police officer for arresting their bossman by hacking into her private social media account.

    According to Media Takeout website, one of the most notorious gangs in Brazil, has lived up to its billing by engaging in a new sort of revenge warfare by leaking the nude photos of a senior female police officer as a way of avenging the arrest of some of their members by the police.

    The boss was arrested by a police posse which included the female officer whose name is given as Julia. Julia has been named as a top police officer of Brazilian Military Police of Rio de Janeiro. In revenge the gang hacked into Julia’s private social media account and stumbled on very personal and intimate selfies of the female cop.

    The gang, upset at the arrest of its members including their leader who was arrested by police, they promptly released the naked photos.

  • Kenyan police arrest 40 Ethiopia’s Oromos for illegal assembly

    NAIROBI, Oct. 3 (Xinhua) — Kenyan police have arrested 40 members of the Oromo, Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, for holding an illegal meeting in the capital Nairobi.

    Nairobi County Police Commander Japheth Koome said the Oromos were arrested on Sunday evening as they were planning to protest against the Ethiopian government.

    “The 40 Oromos had assembled at the City Park in Nairobi without notifying the police. We are interrogating them,” Koome said Monday, adding that they would be charged in court for illegal assembly.

    The police said some of those arrested were in the country illegally and could be deported by court after the scrutiny of their documents.

    The arrest came hours after a celebration in Ethiopia turned into a stampede that reportedly left at least 50 people dead as police dispersed a crowd at an annual cultural festival of the Oromo people.

    It took place in one of Ethiopia’s most sensitive regions, Oromia, which has seen several months of protests by Oromos demanding wider freedoms. The protests were initially sparked by a land row and have been turning more broadly against the government.

  • Warning: Do not open a Facebook video message sent with your name

    Many of the social media users are said to be sent a video with their name on it. Please do not open it!

  • Several dead, many injured after crackdown on Oromia protest in Ethiopia

    Several people have died and many injured during a stampede after Ethiopia’s special forces fired teargas and warning shots on Sunday to disperse protesters at the annual Irreecha thanksgiving festival of the Oromia people in Bishoftu.

    The Ethiopian government confirmed the deaths in a statement but did not state figures while opposition groups estimate at least 50 people dead, Reuters reports.

    “As a result of the chaos, lives were lost and several of the injured were taken to hospital … Those responsible will face justice,” the government communications office stated.

    The chairperson of the opposition Oromo Federalist Congress, Merera Gudina, told Reuters that at least 50 people were killed during the stampede while Jawar Mohammed who is the Executive Director of the Oromia Media Network based in the United States reported about 300 dead.

    The Irreecha festival is an annual thanksgiving event celebrated at the sacred grounds of Lake Harsadi in Bishoftu in the Oromia region.

    Among the thousands of festival participants, a number of them marched chanting anti-government slogans and their arms crossed above their heads while Ethiopian Air Force helicopters hovered above the crowd.

     

    Local media report that the shooting and subsequent stampede occured immediately after ruling party officials were booed off when they wanted to address the crowds at the festival.

    Witnesses told Africanews that the helicopter dropped teargas on the people while the police on the ground fired the shots.

    Graphic images posted on social media show people lying on the ground dead while others were being helped by the security forces.

     

    The Oromia region lies south of the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa and is the center of the Oromia protests last year which Human Rights Watch reported that over 400 protesters were killed.

    The government disputed the figures yet hundreds remained in custody without charges after thousands of students, social media activists, and opposition party leaders and supporters were arrested.

    The anti-government protests which continued in other regions including the neighbouring Amhara were held to demand fair distribution of wealth to Oromia and Amhara, which are the poorest in the country.

  • How To Get Through To An Unapproachable Woman

    Approaching women: we aim to act suave like James Bond, but often come across like the French skunk Pepe Le Pew, pursuing a cat that doesn’t quite hear our call.
     
    The initial approach is a game of cat and mouse that is made much harder by the fact that women love to be a challenge. They’ll act nonchalant and hard to get, and it’s on you to figure out whether she doesn’t want to be approached or if she’s just making you work for it in the name of courtship.
     
    To crack this girl code, we sought advice from a diverse trio of ladies that are familiar with the matter. Pop stars Charli XCX and Tinashe, and former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo (2012) were all at SoBe’s 21st birthday party in Las Vegas, where the brand launched two new flavors of the drink (Midnight Mojito and En Fuego). After the show, we caught up with them at the pool party to get their approach on approaching.

    A Challenge Or Not Interested? 

    Approaching women would be so much easier if we knew one key thing going in: is she interested?
     
    “There are some signs that can indicate she might be interested. Woman might do subconscious things like play with their hair or orient their body towards your direction,” says 24 year-old global pop phenomenon Charli XCX. That supports what a lot of dating experts have suggested. A woman might not be blatant about it, but she’ll subtly make moves to communicate interest, like moving closer to you, getting in your line of sight or making eye contact. Olivia Culpo, the former Miss Universe, believes the eyes can reveal her intentions.

    “If there is no eye contact then that reads stay away,” says Culpo, who was crowned Miss Universe in 2012. “Body language can reveal a lot. If a woman is making eye contact and smiling then move on in.

    Why Do They Play Hard To Get?

    There are a number of theories as to why women like to be appear indifferent during the approach phase. Maybe she has a boyfriend, maybe she had a bad experience with a previous guy or maybe she wants to be a challenge to weed out the men who aren’t confident enough to approach her.
     
    “That’s a factor. Everyone initially will have their standards for their potential partners,” says Tinashe, who’s smash hit "2 On" has now surpassed 125 million views on YouTube. When it comes to standards, remember that the most beautiful women get hit on quite often. That means they don’t need to broadcast their interest, even more so because they’re getting attention either way. But as we head down the spectrum, the other women are more likely to give you some cues, and that’s why we feel those women are more approachable.

    The other factor is that women like to be chased. Actually, it’s not a just a female thing; we all like that feeling.
     
    “I think everyone loves the chase. Girls like the chase and so do guys. We all like to know that we’re wanted,” says Tinashe. It’s feels warm inside when someone expresses their interest. We’re an approval-seeking species, so when someone is hitting on us, it hits the spot.

    How To Talk To An Unapproachable Woman

    The key is to be confident, be original and be yourself. The hotter the woman, the more she’s been hit on, which means she’s not easy to impress. Going in with pickup lines or common strategies are things that she’s seen before and is probably sick of.
     
    “Have a sense of humor and be natural,” says Tinashe. “Don’t use any type of line. The best way to approach a woman is to be yourself and act as natural as possible. Just think about having a normal type of conversation. Sometimes guys over-think and then their approach doesn’t seem natural, so it gets weird.”
     
    We put hot women up on a pedestal. It’s just something we do as men. But they’re just people too, except they just play a different position in the dating game. If you’ve never been a cute woman on Tinder or a babe at a bar, you might not realize how often they’re approached. Understanding their perspective will help you get through to them.

    Improve Your Odds

    Regardless of whether or not you can read what’s going on in her mind, you need to put yourself in position to succeed. That means looking, smelling and feeling good when you approach her.
     
    “I like a guy who takes care of himself and likes to look clean,” says Culpo. “A smelly guy is definitely a turn off!”
     
    All three women echoed those sentiments as they all put a focus on cleanliness and grooming more than anything else. That means you need to put yourself in position to succeed. You still might not get the girl for a number of reasons but don’t let it be something that you could have controlled.

    Is “Unapproachable” In Your Head?

    If there were no feelings involved, would you really care if she seems unapproachable or not? Nope. You’d just make a move and be genuine, and you’d either hit it off or keep it moving. But instead of just walking over to get to know a stranger, guys will put a lot of pressure on the outcome to get a number or get laid and that’s where the approach goes awry.
     
    “Just be funny. Funny always goes over well, so try to think of something funny to break the ice rather than being weird or using pickup lines,” says Charli XCX. She’s often the one making the first move but when she is being courted, her advice is to just have some fun with the approach.
     
    At the end of the day, you might not figure out her body language to determine if she’s just being a challenge or something more, but what do you have to lose by approaching? Yes, you’re putting yourself out there but if you treat her with respect, chances are she’ll do the same even if she’s taken or disinterested.
