    Cristiano Ronaldo’s $19 million private jet crash landed in Barcelona after its landing gear broke away on impact, though the football star was not in it at the time.

    The luxurious plane hit the El Prat runway in Spain on Monday, leaving its undercarriage scratched and damaged.

    On impact it skidded off of the tarmac and came to a halt on the grass.

    Emergency services immediately sped to the scene.

    The plane’s pilot suffered minor injuries in the accident, with other passengers escaping without injuries.

    At the time of the accident, Ronaldo was in Germany with his Real Madrid team mates preparing for their Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund.

    The three-time Ballon d’Or winner purchased the plane last year, though he mostly leases it out to private clients.

  • Burkina Faso bans big buttocks beauty contest

    Burkina Faso bans big buttocks beauty contest (Online photo)

    The government of Burkina Faso has banned an annual beauty contest for women with the biggest buttocks, saying such events are sexist.

    Adverts for this weekend’s third edition of ‘Miss Bim-Bim’, carrying an image of two fully clothed women with exaggeratedly large behinds, provoked an outcry on social media.

    “Our role is to do everything to avoid damaging the image of women,” said Minister Laure Zongo in a statement, adding that social media criticism had persuaded her to act.

    The male organizer of the event, Hamado Doambahe, said it aimed to promote a more positive body image for African women and encourage fashion designers to use African costumes.

    Contests like Miss Bim-Bim have been held in other West African countries.

    Women’s rights groups have mixed views about the tendency in many African cultures to celebrate women with larger bodies than are typically admired elsewhere.

    While they welcome the shift away from the unnaturally thin female shapes promoted by the global fashion industry, they deplore the emphasis on men judging women’s body shapes.

    The head of Burkina Faso’s High Council for Communications, Nathalie Some, called in a statement for people in advertising, the media and the arts to protect the rights of women and girls.

  • President Mugabe Orders For The Arrest Of Zimbabwean Olympic Team For Not Winning Any Medal at Rio 2016

    Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe has instructed the Commissioner General of Zimbabwe Police Republic, Augustine Chihuri to arrest and detain the whole Zimbabwean Olympic Team members immediately the arrive at the Harare International Airport on Tuesday, August 23.

    Zimbabwe which is one of the countries in the Olympics without a medal presented a team of 31 athletes. The closest any of the athletes came to win a contest was at the 8th position.

    Mr. Mugabe who is incensed with the team’s performance told the Police Chief to arrest all the team members and detain them.

     

    “We have wasted the country’s money on these rats we call athletes. If you are not ready to sacrifice and win even copper or brass medals (referring the 4th and 5th positions) as our neighbors Botswana did, then why do you go to waste our money” he said.

     

    If we needed people to just go to Brazil to sing our national anthem and hoist our flag, we would have sent some of the beautiful girls and handsome guys from University of Zimbabwe to represent us.

    He added that, the money invested in the team to represent the country could have been used to provide amenities and build schools.

    “This situation is like an impotent man who is married to 5 women, what is the essence? I will make sure we share the cost across board for all of them to pay back to government chest even if it take 10 years recoup, now it turns out to be a soft loan we have given them to go and visit Brazil as tourist, they are useless ‘he concluded.

  • New HIV vaccine to be trialed in South Africa

     

    A vaccine against HIV will be trialed in South Africa later this year after it met the criteria needed to prove it could help fight the epidemic in Africa.


    2.1 million infections were reported in the continent in 2015, two thirds of which occurred in sub-Saharan Africa. A small trial, known as HVTN100, initially took place in South Africa in 2015 to test the safety and strength of immunity the vaccine could provide, ahead of any large-scale testing in affected populations.


    Two-hundred and fifty-two healthy volunteers were enrolled to receive either the vaccine, known as ALVAC-HIV/gp120, or a placebo to compare the extent of immune response generated. The results were presented Tuesday at the 21st International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa.


    “This was precautionary to see if the vaccine looks promising,” CNN reports Linda Gail Bekker, deputy director of the Desmond Tutu HIV Centre in Cape Town, South Africa, and president-elect of the International AIDS Society, who is leading the vaccine trials, as saying.

  • Mugabe to step aside as Zimbabwe's president

     

     

    Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has told thousands of people attending the commemorations of Day of the African Child that he will quit as leader of the country.

    Speaking at the event which was held in Harare, the 92 year-old said he will quit politics but hoped his successors will be better him.

    “Once upon a time, I was like you. But I am not like you anymore. I am on my way out,” he told the gathering of thousands of children.

    “But when I look over my shoulder, I would want to see bold and courageous men. I want to look behind and say those coming will be better than me.”

    Robert Mugabe will be stepping down.

    Before Saturday, Mugabe had never publicly talked about quitting politics hence the remarks

    have led to discussions over his successor.

    Within his Zanu-PF there are already two visible factions gunning for Mugabe’s seat, one

    called G-40 is led by Mugabe’s wife Grace while the other one known as Lacoste Team fights

    for Zimbabwe vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa. The two however may be involved in a

    futile fight since the constitution allows Mugabe to run for one more term which will end in

    2022, a provision the veteran president may consider using given his history of clinging to power.

     

    Mugabe — the only leader Zimbabwe has known since independence 36 years ago — has used

    all manner of tactics to cling to power, including alleged violence against political opponents

    and electoral fraud.

    An 8 year old Yemeni child bride, a mere girl, recently died on her wedding night from internal hemorrhaging.

    She was married to a man five times her age. As disgusting as the tradition of marrying off children to much

    older men is, it is common practice in Yemen.

    More than a quarter of the female population are married before the age of 15. In 2010, a 12 year-old girl passed

    away after struggling for three days in labor, attempting to give birth to a baby. Countless other children have

    been subjected to similar atrocities.

     


    At only 8 years-old, one child bride in Yemen sustained internal injuries so severe, she died. Marrying young

    daughters to much older men is a common practice inYemen.

     Groups all over the world are working to snuff out this archaic and disgusting practice, but its proving difficult.

    The impoverished country is gripped by the practice of selling off children to be married; poor families find

    themselves unable to say no to “bride-prices” that can be hundreds of dollars for their daughters. More people

    need to know this is happening. Hit the SHARE icon below to spread the word.

  • Pastor fails to resurrect after telling people to bury him alive

     

    Five members of the same family were charged with the murder of a prophet who had been called to their their home in the village of Mazonde, Zimbabwe to help them cleanse their house of evil spirits.

     

    According to local newspaper, Zed 24 News, the accused family identified as Leanmore Mutero, Tonderai Muswere, Michael Muchengeti, Manasa Mutero and Nicholas Mutero, appeared at the High Court in Harare facing a murder charge for participating in the death of self-professed Prophet Shamiso Kanyama, who accidentally died during a healing ceremony.

     

    Pastor Kanyama had reportedly asked his followers to bury him alive so that he could summon more cleansing powers to heal the family that had been plagued by mysterious deaths.

     

    Zed 24 News reports that High Court Justice Owen Tagu heard how on that day, the late pastor had been invited to attend the home in the Muzarabani district, which is situated along the Mozambique-Zimbabwe border, by their priest, Zvidzai Muchengeti.

     

    The five men had requested the priest to help them clean their home of evil spirits, because it was causing mysterious deaths in their family.

     

    Responding to their request to perform a healing ceremony, Kanyama had ordered his followers to dig a grave and bury him alive because that was the way he summoned more healing powers to ward off evil spirits. However, the plan backfired on the prophet when instead of being resurrected as he supposed, the men dug up the grave again to find him dead.

     

    Kanyama helped to dig his own grave before praying and jumping inside, Father Zvidzai, who has turned State witness, told the High Court. He continued that after laying face down in the grave, he ordered his followers to start covering him with soil.

     

    He pegged a grave-shaped pit in front of my hut and asked for help to dig the pit,” Zvidzai continued. “Deceased requested to be buried alive so that he would gain power to drive away the evil forces.”

     

    Fearing for the life of the prophet as the men were in the process of filling the grave, he requested the men to stop what they were doing, Joseph Taderera told Justice Tagu.

     

    However, they ignored his pleas when Kanyama urged them to continue the process of burying him alive, stating that he would rise from the grave unharmed.

     

    “I warned the men about the danger of their actions, but my advice fell on deaf ears because Kanyama shouted, telling me that I am disturbing his angels, and urged them to continue filling the grave, saying that he would later come out alive,”Taderera said.

  • A Three-Month-Old Baby was Left Blind in One Eye After a Family Friend Took his Picture

     

     

    All babies are adorable. Just one glimpse at their sweet faces can relieve us of our burdens after a hard day’s work. Whether they’re smiling their sweetest smile or just peacefully sleeping, the sight of those angels is enough to remove our stress. That is why most proud parents, including their relatives and their closest friends, store numerous photos of their babies on their mobile phones so they can look at those cute faces whenever they need a dose of happiness.

     

     

     

    There’s nothing wrong with taking a baby’s picture, but parents should be on guard because the flash from a camera or a mobile phone can harm an infant’s eyes.

    A three-month-old child from China was left blind in one eye after a family friend failed to turn off the flash of a camera phone. The family friend held the phone 10 inches away to take a close-up photograph of the baby boy. According to the People’s Daily Online, the parents of the child noticed that there was something wrong with the child’s vision shortly after the picture was taken.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    However, this only becomes fully developed once a child reaches the age of four. Damage to the macula can result in the loss of central vision.

    According to experts, although babies will blink their eyes on reflex, exposure to strong light, even for just a millisecond, can still cause permanent eye damage. They also advised parents to be mindful of strong bathroom lights when their babies are taking a bath

    It is not yet clear whether the parents of the child will sue their friend for the unfortunate incident.
