One Wanyama Nakalila has found himself by the grip of the law for practicing what authorities deem as occultism.

Born Wanyama Nakalila, Nabii, who purports to be the biblical John the Baptist, runs Muungano Church for All Nations located in Nandolia village in Kanduyi.

Notably, he has written his own version of the Bible, which has 93 books, unlike the modern bible, which has 66 books.

The self-proclaimed prophet has 46 wives, 289 children and has written two constitutions in which he claims if not adopted by the government, the country will be in trouble.

His wives are referred to as angels. Four of them have died, and the youngest of them is 24 years old.

Wanyama said God directed him to write the bible with 93 books, further indicating that God wanted to add more books because the initial ones were not enough.

Additionally, he has also introduced 12 commandments instead of the traditional 10 captured in the Bible.

Wanyama asked to clarify teachings

Speaking to the media, Bungoma Police Commander Francis Kooli said he summoned the supposed man of God to clarify his teachings.

Kooli said there was a complaint from members of the public over how he conducts his services, disclosing that he mixes prayers with herbal medicines.

“I summoned him to my office on June 2 for questioning. I want him to clarify his teachings. There are allegations that he mixes his biblical teachings with herbal medicines. He needs to clarify if he is a preacher or a witch doctor.

Majirani zake wanasema huwa analetewa kuku, ni pastor gani huyo anaitisha kuku ili kuomba. Tunataka kujua kama ni mganga ama mhubiri (which pastor demands chicken from followers to pray),” said Kooli.

The police boss added that there are laws that govern publications in Kenya, the Books and Newspapers act, and he will seek to find out if Wanyama conformed to the laws when writing his bible and the commandments.

Ghana has been hit with the sudden deaths of some 15 individuals who lost their lives on the Cape-Accra highway.

According to eyewitnesses, the accident occurred after a head-on collision between a petrol tanker and a bus at about 5 am on Tuesday.

The bus was travelling from Abidjan to Buduburam while the tanker was filled with petrol, travelling from Accra heading towards Takoradi.

An eyewitness told the Ghana National Fire Service that the Yutong bus driver occasionally veered off his lane all through the trip.

“So he [tanker driver] rather came into the lane of the Yutong because at the time the Yutong driver had also entered his lane,” the Winneba Fire Service Commander DO II Kwesi Hughes said on JoyNews.

The impact was great on the passenger sides of both vehicles, a situation which got “the tanker driver mashed.”

The Fire Service Commander explained that “other passengers on the passenger side of the Yutong were also dismembered, in fact, they were cut into pieces.”

Speaking on the AM Show, he clarified, “We have been able to rescue the rescuable lives first, which we have done. We have sent them to the trauma and specialist hospital.”

The rest have been sent to a municipal hospital nearby.

President Museveni is in the trends but this time around for meets his old classmate after 65 years. He has been in power for more than 30 years and from the look of things it appears he is being loved by his people following his strict stance on morality.

Ladies of Uganda can’t go out scantly dressed as it will mean they are breaching the constitution and will be punished for that.

But today as I stated early on, President Museveni today met his old classmate after 65 years and the two old men were really joyous as they discussed the good old days.

Both studied at Kyamate Elementary School

Daily Monitor reports that the former schoolmates bumped into each other at Liberation Square in Masaka City.

It all began when the event’s master of ceremony announced that one of the people in the crowd is an alumnus of Kyamate Elementary School, where Museveni studied.

He added that the 85-year-old had requested to meet the president who was at the event, after which Micwe stood up and started walking towards the podium.

It was at that point that Museveni stood up from his chair and walked towards the octogenarian for a short chat.

Micwe dropped out of school to marry

The old man disclosed that the two were able to recollect some memorable moments in their childhood before he dropped out in 1958.

According to Micwe, he wasn’t gifted academically as Museveni and their other colleagues, so he preferred to leave books for those who understood them.

“I was only good at football and repeated Primary Five for some years and that is why my father told me to quit school and marry,” he recalled.

That was the point at which their lives went separate ways as Micwe had officially become a family man.

Micwe wishes he finished school

Micwe, who is now a father of seven, expressed joy at meeting the president after over six decades, but admitted that he regrets not finishing school.

He noted that if he furthered his studies, he is sure he would have reconnected with Museveni in the early 1980s and would now be a better man.

Micwe, visibly moved by the reunion, thanked President Museveni for agreeing to meet him and acknowledged the impact of their friendship during their school days.

“I’m, however, happy and pray that God gives my OB more years on earth,” he said.

Chelsea in their quest to turn their fortunes around have now gone in for the services of Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager following the end of a disastrous campaign. Chelsea have had their worst season in the just ended season as Lampard couldn’t salvage the situation much with them missing out on European football in the coming season.

The Argentine who has had some stints with Tottenham taking the team to its first ever Champions League final has now been contracted till 2026 even though his stay at Paris Saint Germain didn’t go according to plan.

Prior to his appointment, many were of the view that the Blues was going for Luis Enrique but the Spanish coach opted out.

With the appointment of Pochettino, this is what the caretaker coach Frank Lampard had to say;

“I’m a big fan of Mauricio Pochettino – he is a great manager. It is about getting the right level of manager and Pochettino’s history tells you he is that.

“Then let him get to work and try to create a solid identity in this team. That is not always an overnight thing, so we need to be careful about expectations.

“I know standards is a really simple word, but standards here have definitely dropped. I can be honest about that because it is my last game. But standards collectively at a club like Chelsea have to be at a maximum, or you won’t be able to compete.

One Theresa Nyirakajumba is on social media seeking true love after spending 123 years on planet Earth. After this while, the old lady believes her true love is somewhere at the corner of the world yet to be located or I believe he is yet to be born.

She said in the video: “I never had a husband in my entire life. Yes of course I am a v*rgin. I would think of it during my era but I won’t take myself to any husband.

“My name is Theresa Nyirakajumba. I have never seen the nakedness of a man. For 123 years, I live with an unfulfilled desire, a deviant hope and a courageous spirit of waiting that one day a man will emerge and embrace my soul.”

Social media reactions;

@Ir-of4zn said: “She does not realize the wrong man will tear her down. She is healthy and mobile. I hope she will find a good companion because that is what she wants.”

@chesterphiri7523 wrote: “If “Purity” is a person then this Mama is one. Longevity alone is even more than the happiness she could have gotten from a man. Glory be to God.”

@francine8905 commented: “She has lived this long without a heartache how lucky. The reason she has 123 years it’s because she has loved herself for herself. She just needs a good place to live really and maybe she hasn’t got feelings for men.”

@charmainerussell522 reacted: “She really doesn’t need one again, she just needs to get closer to her Maker, I wish I was like her.”

The sudden demise of Tina Turner on May 23, 2023, brought the world to tears. The queen of pop died at the age of 83 and apparently had a net worth of more than $200 million.

Tina Turner’s music career took off in July 1960 with the release of “A Fool in Love,” credited to the duo Ike & Tina Turner. The song became an instant hit, reaching No. 2 on the Hot R&B Sides chart and No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100. Over the years, Ike and Tina released numerous successful singles, including “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine,” which earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock and Roll Performance.

We are today going to have a look at his 4 sons and where they are now;

Craig Raymond Turner

Tina welcomed her first son, Craig Raymond Turner in 1958. She was 18 at the time. The singer was in a relationship with Saxophonist Raymond Hill, a member of Ike Turner’s band Kings of Rhythm.

Sadly in July 2018, Craig died in what has been said to be suicide in his California home. He was 59.

Turner held a ceremony in his honour. She shared a tweet that read:

“My saddest moment as a mother. I said my final goodbye to my son, Craig Raymond Turner when I gathered with family and friends to scatter his ashes off the coast of California. He was fifty-nine when he died so tragically, but he will always be my baby.”

Ronnie Renelle Turner

Ronald “Ronnie” Renelle Turner is Tina’s youngest child. He was also the only child Ike and Tina had together. Born in October 1960, Ronnie reportedly worked alongside his late mother in the 1993 film ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’.

He was married to singer Afida Turner. He died on December 8, 2018, after battling colon cancer. His wife shared a statement on Instagram which read, “My God, Ronnie Turner, a true angel, huge soul, highly spiritual, my husband, my best friend, my baby.”

Ike Turner Jr.

Tina adopted two of Ike Turner’s six children. Tina’s eldest child, Ike Turner Jr., was born in 1958. Like his parents, he built a music career and won a Grammy in 2016, in the Traditional Blues Album category for producing his father’s album ‘Risin’ With The Blues’.

Ike Jr and Tina were estranged for almost two decades. In a 2018 interview with Dailymail, Ike Jr said, “Tina raised me from the age of two. She’s the only mother I’ve ever known. I haven’t talked to my mother since God knows when – probably around 2000. I don’t think any of my brothers have talked to her in a long time either.”

Michael Turner

Michael is Ike Turner’s youngest son from his relationship with Lorraine Taylor. Not so much is known about him as he does a fine job avoiding the media. However, a source told Fox News that Michael and his brothers Ike and Ronnie were ‘devastated’ to have been left out of Tina Turner’s HBO Max documentary titled ‘Tina.

Sad news coming from the Western North region of Ghana is all about the demise of one student known as Godfred Ankomah who after receiving some strokes of canes from his class teacher ended up giving up the ghost.

According to the report, the teacher warned them that she would cane them depending on how many mistakes they made on the assignment she had given them.

Godfred Ankomah, a Form 2 student, had a lot of mistakes in his assignment and his madam decided to punish him severely.

Although he informed her that he wasn’t feeling well, the teacher ignored his plea and still flogged him mercilessly, leading to his death.

The female teacher made Godfred kneel before dishing out the corporal punishment. The boy begged the teacher to refrain from lashing him in the back but it was in vain because Madam Millicent repeatedly caned him on his back until he died a few hours later.

The sad news has caused an uproar on social media as depicted below;

BOADAI Seydini: This child probably had an underlying problem with the backTherefore, they opted to take the canes in the hands, but the teacher refused.

What the hell is it with teachers canning students? Following the implementation of all GES regulationsSome teachers still defy it. Ask the child to go scrub the washroom. after school or during the break. This is punitive enough, why cane and end up killing a young lad? We pray for the law. takes its course.

I would have retaliated. had it been my son! A life for a lifeboadai_bespoke: The said child might have a health issue already thatThe parents probably didn’t know. Is quite unfortunate.

nharnharequiryarh: Some of the teachers don’t care about the student.because they want to correct them, but rather cane them out of anger, which is very wrong.

system_ventures: Canes at the back? What happened to the butt? To caning palms? Though this might already beill T MUST SAY | DO NOT AGREETO TEACHERS USING CANES ONBACK, LEGS, OR ANYWHERE ASIDEPALM AND BUTTS

fvuzvn.mvlimbo: I remember having the worst corporal punishment of my life in class six at 12 years old. Beaten like a thief for refusing to pay a “canteen fee,” six canes broke on me, Chale, and this was an intentional school.
