image22

More revelations were made on Thursday where hearing resumed at the Federal High Court, Abuja, on the trial of former Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro and 3 others in relation to the botched NIS recruitment of 2014.

Moro is being prosecuted alongside three others on an 11-count charge bordering on procurement fraud and money laundering.

The other accused persons are: one-time permanent secretary in the ministry, Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia, a deputy director in the ministry, F. O Alayebami, one Mahmood Ahmadu (at large) and the contracting firm that was given the recruitment job, Drexel Tech Nigeria Limited.
During the cross examination of the former Comptroller-General of Immigration and Principal Witness (PW1) to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. David Paradang, it was revealed that the former Immigration Boss was actually a Member of the Steering Committee which conducted the ill-fated recruitment exercise.

It was also revealed that Mr. Paradang participated in every process that led to the recruitment exercise, contrary to his earlier testimonies that he was not aware of the March 15th 2014 recruitment exercise and that he only saw the advertisement on pages of national dailies.

Under close interrogation, it was also revealed that Mrs. Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia who is also standing trial was transferred from the Ministry of Interior in July 2013, two months before the Board advertised for vacancies for the said recruitment.

The court also discovered on Thursday that the 3rd Defendant, Mr. F. O. Alayebami who is also joined in the suit was just a Deputy Director in the Procurement Department of the Ministry and did not take part in any of the processes leading to the recruitment exercise.
The Counsel to Comrade Abba Moro, Mr. Paul Erokoro (SAN) had during his cross examination last session established that it was Mr. David Paradang who should be responsible for the unfortunate outcome of the recruitment exercise.

According to him, Mr. Paradang had records of stampedes where death was recorded during a botched recruitment of Junior Staff into the Immigration Service while serving as Comptroller in charge of Enugu State in 2008 and should have known how better to handle such exercise to avoid similar case.

Mr. Erokoro was particularly concerned on how Mr. Paradang, as Comptroller-General would abandon such a sensitive national assignment and chose to parley with the former Governor of Plateau State and other politicians at a birthday party in Jos while the recruitment interview was ongoing.

Zimbabwean Church leader in s*x scandal as photos naked photos and sex acts with 33 girls is exposed

Church leader
A Zimbabwean church leader, Nyasha Light Nyatsungo is enmeshed in a sex scandal and might also be facing legal action, after his ex-girlfriend flooded social media with his nude photo.
It was gathered that the Nyatsungo allegedly sent a nude picture of his Cape Town based ex–side chick, Shingi Mavenge, to his other girlfriend only identified as Beula who later broadcasted it on social media.
According to H-Metro, in an apparent fit of rage, Mavenge posted a WhatsApp chat she had with Nyatsungo’s wife identified as Nyasha Nhahumbi as well as a group chat with some of her former lover’s concubines.
According to Mavenge, she has gotten information that Nyatsungo has at least 33 girlfriends and has ditched his wife of eight years.
She adds that Nyatsungo bedded a girl who was their neighbour as well.
Mavenge said that the church leader’s wife revealed that they even consulted their local pastor in Mutare who failed in his attempts to mend Nyatsungo’s ways.
According to H-Metro, Nyatsungo, a married father of two, has denied ever circulating the picture, labelling Mavenge as a bitter woman whom he just flirted with on Facebook and nothing more.
“This Nyasha guy must be stopped in his tracks. He is going to pay for all the damage that he has done to me. He was the only one who had that leaked picture and I am shocked why he would forward it to some other girl,” fumed Mavhenge who is working on taking legal action.
 
“I started dating this guy in 2015 and never knew he was married. He lied.”  fumed Mavenge yesterday.
“That guy is full of lies and at some point, we opened a group chat with his wife and some of his girlfriends. He normally targets single mothers” added Mavenge.
H-Metro was furnished with six other cellphone numbers of his girlfriend that include Fadzai, Mutsa, Essy, Juliana, Barbra among others. Mutsa confirmed she once had a relationship with Nyatsungo have since terminated it since she discovered he was married.
Mavenge confirmed they met once in Johannesburg when she had to fly from Cape Town to meet her man sometime in April.
“That night he didn’t even have money. I had to pay the R800 for the accommodation as he had no money. He wanted to have sex with me but I flatly refused. He even wanted it without protection and I said No. he looked terrible with clothes in a plastic shopping bag. I want to write a letter to Pastor Rex who is the head of (the church) in Harare so that this guy be stopped with his tricks and lies,” added Mavenge.
When contacted over the phone in Mutare Nyatsungo confirmed he knew Mavenge but never had a relationship with her.
“I know her and we once flirted on Facebook. We never had a relationship as she is alleging. I don’t know why she is bitter. I haven’t seen the nude pictures she is talking about but I heard about it from Beula. We live in a democratic country. She can go ahead and sue me if she feels her rights have been infringed upon. All the allegations she is making are false and I don’t know her motive in trying to tarnish my image,” said Nyatsungo.
He said he was still with his wife whose phone rang without response yesterday afternoon. Despite his denials, H-metro was furnished with pictures of Nyatsungo and Mavenge, the time they met in April.
