Ranieri Sacked 298 Days after Winning the Premier League

Manager Claudio Ranieri has been sacked by Leicester City, nine months after leading them to the Premier League title.

The Foxes are one point above the relegation zone with 13 matches left.

“The board reluctantly feels that a change of leadership, while admittedly painful, is necessary in the club’s greatest interest,” read a statement.

Ranieri, 65, guided the Foxes to the title despite them being rated 5,000-1 shots at the start of the campaign.

His departure comes less than 24 hours after a 2-1 defeat at Spanish side Sevilla in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

The Foxes took the Premier League title by 10 points but have won just five top-flight games this season, and could become the first defending champions to be relegated since 1938.

They have lost their past five league matches and are the only side in the top four English divisions without a league goal in 2017.

Season Position Points Won Lost Scored Conceded
2015-16 1st 53 15 2 47 27
2016-17 17th 21 5 14 24 43

“His status as the most successful Leicester City manager of all time is without question,” added the Foxes statement.

“However, domestic results in the current campaign have placed the club’s Premier League status under threat.”

Earlier this month, Leicester gave their “unwavering support” to the Italian, who was appointed manager in July 2015 and signed a new four-year deal in August 2016.

“After all that Claudio Ranieri has done for Leicester City, to sack him now is inexplicable, unforgivable and gut-wrenchingly sad,” said former Foxes striker Gary Lineker.

Photos: Pastor Arrested For Severely Beating His Kids, Loses Custody Of His 3 Children, Begs For Deliverance

The story of the 40-yearold pastor who beat his two children so brutally with cable, leaving severe marks all over their bodycontinues to elicit widespread condemnation, as the man at the centre of it all has now been arrested in Jos by the officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in collaboration with Social Welfare Department of Jos South Local Government of Plateau State.

The pastor known as Christopher Sule who has engaged in this bestial act for a period of three years is said to be chaplain in Bima a private hospital and also claimed to be a Pastor with ECWA Bishara (1) Bukuru and currently pursuing a Master’s degree at Jos ECWA Theological Seminary in Plateau State.

He hails from Wamba Local Government of Nassarawa State and has been handed over to the Nigerian Police Force in Jos Saturday Telegraph checks show that the pastor regularly beat his two daughters, ages eight and six, as as a result of their inability to recite what they were taught in school as well as stealing meat from the pot of soup at home due to his excessive anger.

However the management of the children’s school last week noticed several lacerations on their bodies as result of thee severe beating over a minor issue and the school quickly reported the incident to the NSCDC in Jos South Local Government secretariat and the father was apprehended for interrogation.

Wife of the pastor, Mrs Racheal Christopher, 35, and an NCE Holder teaching in one of the primary schools in Bukuru had also received a share of the treatment for coming to the rescue of her daughters.

The pathetic story of the two female children is heart wrenching given the extent of the injuries inflicted on them.

While narrating their ordeal to Saturday Telegraph in Jos, the mother could not hold back tears as she recounted the constant beating and harassment she and her daughters had endured.

“For the past three years, we have been in bondage and under the yoke of maltreatment by my husband who under slight provocation would descend on me and the children and beat us to pulp.

I had reported the issue to my family but my husband would always ask for forgiveness with a promise not to do so again,” she said.

“My husband was arrested and taken to the local government secretariat; although he had been beating them the last one was so terrible that I had to struggle with him to rescue the children. But I got the beating of my life in the process.

The beating has become so rampant that the people in the neighbourhood no longer intervene,” she claimed. She revealed that she had threatened several times to park out of her matrimonial home along with her children but was often prevailed upon by family members to stay for the sake of the kids and to pray for her husband to turn a new leaf.

She added: “It is like my husband is under a spell or spiritual attack. After my husband carried out this evil act, he always came back, pleading and telling me to pray for him because he did not know what came upon him. We have fasted and prayed together over this issue.”

While speaking Saturday Telegraph on the circumstances leading to his action, Sule said he could not justify his action and confessed that he flogged his daughters more than the offence they committed.

“I don’t know what really came upon me; although I had been beating them that way for the past three years I always regretted my action.

By nature I am temperamental and also have excessive anger, but I need deliverance,” he said. The pastor who couldn’t control his tears, admitted beating his daughters and told Saturday Telegraph in Jos that he flogged them when they could not recollect what they were taught in school and also for stealing meat in the soup.

He pleaded for mercy, promising to love his children. Chief Social Welfare Officer of Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State where the incident was reported, Mr Ancha Adik Jonathan, told Saturday Telegraph in his office in Jos that the arrest of the pastor followed a tip off by the management of the school the two children attended after the discovery of several injuries on the children by the head teacher.

He said: “The head teacher of Salvation Kingdom Academy the school the children attend noticed the injuries of the beating and alerted us at the Social Welfare department because she an advocate of child protection.

Following her information and based on the child right law that had been domesticated in Plateau State we had to immediately request the service of the men of NSCDC to arrest the man, and even when we got to his house we discovered he also locked his daughter who is just over a year in a room and went to the bush to look for firewood without minding what will happen to the child.

“So, the magnitude of his offence was too heavy and we had to immediately take over the custody of his three children including his wife because there is Christian Centre called Queens that we are collaborate with on issues of child abuse and other family related issues.”

Mr. Jonathan disclosed that the pastor worships with ECWA Bishara in Bukuru where he had preached on several occasions.

“We will ensure that the man face the full wrath of the law to serve as deterrence to all other persons in the society; already he had been handed over to the Police and very soon he will be charged to court” he said.

The Management Committee Chairman of Jos North Local Government, Comrade Augustine Pwakim, who confirmed the incident, said the council would henceforth collaborate with Child Protection Agency and State Ministry of Women Affairs to enlighten parents on the danger of child abuse. Comrade Pwakim said Pastor Christopher had been handed to relevant law enforcement agencies for prosecution to serve as a deterrence to others.

Meanwhile the Plateau State Coordinator Child right Protection Network Mr Tony Obemeasor has given assurance that the children will be taken to hospital for checkup and treatment for trauma as result of the repeated beatings.

Man marries his own Mother after Impregnating Her

Zimbabwe-A woman married her own son yesterday. The woman and her son claim to be in love with each other and they decided take their relationship to the next level and get married considering that the mother, Betty Mbereko (from Mwenezi in Masvingo) is now six months pregnant and expecting her son’s child, and her grandchild.

Mbereko, 40, has been a widow for the past 12 years and has been living with her 23-years-old son Farai Mbereko.

She confirmed that she is six months pregnant and that she has decided it is better to “marry” her son because she does not want to marry her late husband’s young brothers, whom she says are coveting her.

Betty stunned a village court last week when she said the affair with her son had begun three years earlier.

She said after spending a lot of money sending Farai to school following the death of her husband, she felt she had a right to his money and no other woman was entitled to it.

“Look, I struggled alone to send my son to school and no one helped me. Now you see that my son is working and you accuse me of doing something wrong.

“Let me enjoy the products of my sweat,” she told the village court council.

Farai said he was more than prepared to marry his mother and would pay off the lobola balance his father had left unpaid to his grandparents.

“I know my father died before he finished paying the bride price and I am prepared to pay it off,” he said.

“It is better to publicise what is happening because people should know that I am the one who made my mother pregnant.Otherwise they will accuse her of promiscuity.”

But local headman Nathan Muputirwa says: “We cannot allow this to happen in our village, mashura chaiwo aya, (This is a bad omen indeed). In the past they would have to be killed but today we cannot do it because we are afraid of the police.”

He warned them to immediately break off their marriage or leave his village. They chose the latter and have since left the village for an undisclosed destination.

Man Dies Trying To Romance a Cobra For Selfie

A misguided soul’s attempt at romance ended in tragedy as he took things too far.

The man who was a ‘wildlife conservationist) was in the business of rescuing animals including snakes.
He had been contracted to extract a poisonous cobra which had slithered into one of the private cars near a housing complex.
After a successful extraction he took the snake to check for any injuries but the snake was in a defensive mode.

After he tried to take a selfie with the cobra it aimed straight for his chest and struck. As he bled onlookers rushed to the scene and tried to resuscitate him but it was too late as the venom was too potent and the snake had also struck several times. According to eyewitnesses he took it a notch too far and tried to ki_ss the snake on the mouth.

“We’re sad to lose such a young man who was full of life and was doing a good job with the animals. However I think it’s also important to realize that in spite of the attempt to tame wild animals they still remain wild and dangerous. They always act out of defense, that is how they survive” a park ranger who was present at the funeral said.

A fellow snake rescuer, who didn’t want to be named, said: “Somnath had gone to rescue a snake from a car at central business district Belapur.

Breaking News: Barack Obama to CONSIDER contesting for Presidency in Kenya

After the release this week of 11 documents concerning Barack Obama’s birth and early childhood in the country, Kenyan Supreme Court judge Mokoumbo Abwebwe has declared that “nothing could technically prevent Mr. Obama from running in the 2017 Kenyan elections”.

The papers have been requested by the international press for years, but the Kenyan Supreme Court, who had ordered all of his records to be sealed months before the 2008 US presidential elections, finally just ordered authorities to release the documents based on a new law on “access to information.”

The papers indicate that former President Barrack Hussein Obama was actually born in Lamu, Kenya, more than a year before his father allegedly moved to Hawaii and met his mother.

“This information contradicts all the documents presented by the administration over the past few years,” he added.

In 2008, the Kenya Supreme Court had stated that it had sealed all birth records concerning Obama at the time “as to not interfere in another country’s election process”, a decision which was overruled by authorities last week by the new access to information law recently passed this year.

“Now that Mr. Obama is no longer president and that this information will no longer interfere with the democratic process of the US elections, and in accordance with the new access to information law, there is no more reason that the former presidential candidate’s birth certificate be under seal and all instructions to the effect that the state’s Department of Health is to make sure no one in the press obtains access to the original document under any circumstances, has been officially lifted” said Kenyan Supreme Court judge, Mokoumbo Abwebwe, in his statement.
