Delta partners private investor on N5bn mechanic village


To ensure a cleaner environment, Delta State government has begun the construction of a mechanic village in Asaba where all automobile artisans are expected relocate to in the next 12 months after the project is completed.
The project, which is in partnership with a private investor, ReHomes Property Development Company Limited, is expected to gulp about N5 billion.
Designed as a one-stop shop for automobile artisans and vehicle spare parts dealers, the mechanic village will also serve as skill acquisition centre for youths interested in automobile repairs.
Impressed with the level of work done so far by the investor, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, who performed the ground breaking ceremony said ReHomes Limited was committed to the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which was signed some months ago.
Okowa disclosed that his administration has also signed an MoU with other private investors for separate projects in other cities across the state.
“We have also signed MoU with the private sector for development of parks in other cities and the energy sector. We will continue to be pro-active by providing the enabling environment for investors to thrive,” he assured.
Executive Assistant to the Governor on Investment, Mr. Paul Nmah, said the investors were convinced that the agenda of the state government provided a valuable platform for businesses to thrive.
Nmah, who said the project is worth about N5 billion, explained that the “benefit is to clear the mechanics scattered along the road and bring them to one unit. It is going to be a one-stop shop where there will be a spare parts market. The mechanics will have their shops here and anything you want will be here.”
On his part, Project Director of ReHomes Limited, Mr. Chinedu Monu, explained that the project was designed as a skills acquisition centre for youths, besides being a mechanic workshop for automobile artisans.
He added that there was also a provision for other ancillary services and infrastructure including banking, fire service, clinics, police post, conveniences, restaurants, business centres and large central park, adding that no such project will match it in Nigeria.
“The objective of partnering with the state government to construct this ultra-modern market is to give our state capital a befitting aesthetics and for our auto engineers and spare parts dealers, state-of-the-art workshops and auto parts stalls where all Deltans and, in fact, Nigerians can purchase all manner of auto parts as well as repair their automobiles with the latest state-of-the-art technologies and equipment in a most convenient and serene environment,” he noted.

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.
