anambra_state-map-300x225

There is tension mounting in Anambra East communities where the traditional rulers and community leaders have warned the government and herdsmen that they will not tolerate cattle grazing on their land this dry season.
They feared that as the dry season approaches, ushering in limited amount of pasture for cattle grazing, Fulani herdsmen might fall back on their land located on the bank of Anambra River.
But the communities namely: Aguleri Otu, Mkpunando and Eziagulu Otu, said they were still “recuperating from the wounds of hardship, incessant threat to life and colossal damage to our crops suffered last dry season” and so cannot take further damage.
In a communique issued after the meeting of Aguleri-Otu leaders of thought, chaired by the traditional ruler of Mkpunando, Igwe Alex A. Edozieuno, with his deputy, Igwe Udorji Ikegbunam of Eziagulu Otu, the people resolved never to allow the herdsmen return to their land.
Part of the communique read: “We agreed that we are no longer ready to live in perpetual fear of the herdsmen or condone unwarranted destruction of our crops, hence, the decision not to allow Fulani herdsmen graze on our land as from this season.
They added: “The Igwes and the entire community in Enugwu-Otu, Eziagulu-Otu and Mkpunando, therefore, in the interest of peace call on the Anambra State Government and all relevant security agencies to warn the herdsmen to steer clear of our land from this dry season.
“We will not take it lightly if we see any cow, cattle or herdsmen attempt to disregard this all important warning,” they stated.
In an interview with reporters, Igwe Edozieuno lamented the losses his people have suffered in the hands of Fulani herdsmen. He said his people who are predominantly farmers now buy food in the market because cattle of the herdsmen ate up whatever they planted in their farms.
To make matters worse, he said, “women from the communities have been severally raped  while men who resisted the herdsmen were fought and injured.
“Each time the herdsmen come with their cattle, they chase away farmers from their farm land so that their cattle can graze freely.”
Now that the herdsmen are no longer in the area, the communities vowed that they would not allow them return to their land.

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.
