I am hale and hearty-Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State

okowa-300x186

AFTER one week of intense speculation about the health condition of the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, the governor on Wednesdaycleared doubts surrounding his health status, saying that he is “hale and hearty.”

Speculations have been rife in the past week about the health status of the governor as a section of the media was awash that the governor allegedly slumped in the bathroom attached to his office and was subsequently flown abroad.

But speaking at the Government House chapel on Wednesday, the governor described his rumored il-health as unfair and uncharitable, admitting that he had minor injury which had since be taken care of.
Dr. Okowa said he was surprised at the blatant falsehood published by a section of the social and main stream media suggesting that he collapsed and was flown abroad for medical attention.
He said: “It is unfair and uncharitable to disseminate false information. It is very unfortunate at this age and time that people will intentionally misinform others when there are opportunity to find out what might have happened.
“I am told that certain sections of the social media reported that I have been flown abroad for medical treatment. When and how did that happen? when I have been very busy treating hundreds of files on my table.
“The truth is that last Wednesday, I entered the washroom in my office and one of the tiles fell off from the wall and I had a minor cut on my head and I had two stitches, it was treated, and I was ok. People know I am a workaholic and that is why it didn’t stop me from working, I am hale and healthy.”
Dr. Okowa therefore advised journalists to imbibe the culture of responsible journalism which demands a thorough investigation of issues before publishing, urging media practitioners to always seek truthful information at all times.
He expressed surprise that anybody will query why his deputy, Barrister Kingsley Otuaro will represent him at public functions even when it is a known fact that the office of the governor and that of the deputy are one.
The governor’s absence at public events including the 2016 Teachers’ Day celebration and the opening ceremony of the 2016/2017 legal year of the state judiciary where he was represented by his deputy at both occasion fueled the speculation that he was flown abroad for treatment.

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.
