Tragedy! Young Man Drowns During Swimming Competition for N9k (Photo)

A young man has suffered a terrible fate while engaging in a local swimming competition with other friends.
The scene of the sad incident
Dennis Yaw Ayamba, a 19-year-old man has drowned.
The young man drowned in the Densu River at Akwadum in the New Juabeng Municipality of the Eastern Region during a swimming competition for a GHC120 prize (about  N9,371)
According to Adom News, Ayamba, and two others who were engaged in the challenge, dived from the top of the bridge over the Densu River, which links Suhum to the New Juabeng Municipality.
Witnesses say Ayamba who is a Junior High School drop-out, failed to come out of the river after a third dive, raising suspicion he had been drowned. The incident happened at about 3:00pm Monday.
The prize money was said to have been contributed by the three young men. Eyewitnesses say the other two, who are yet to be identified, fled the scene when they realised their colleague had drowned.
His family was immediately alerted and a group of young men were contracted to search for his body after a libation was poured. The team was however unsuccessful after hours of search by local swimming experts.
On Tuesday morning, the family members reported the incident to the Densu priest and traditional authorities in the town who demanded GHC 900, a bottle of schnapps, a gallon of Akpeteshie [local gin], red chili pepper, and Ga kenkey.
An amount of GHC 500 is to be given to the traditional authorities while the remainder is to be given to the search party of local swimmers.
Adom News reports that the family members say they do not have enough to readily pay all the money.
They have thus paid GHC400 to the search party. The pepper was grounded and smeared on the body of the search team before they went into the river, while the drinks were used for the performance of rituals.
It was reported that after about an hour, the team, which carried out the exercise without any life-saving jackets and swam in the river, returned without any success.
Ayamba’s sister, Mariama Ayamba, told Adom News that he was at home Monday when she got information that her brother had drowned at the river during a swimming challenge with two others. She said the matter has been reported to the Police but they are yet to visit the scene of the incident.
Checks by 3news.com indicated that the family members told the Police they will retrieve the body themselves.

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.
