African First Lady Loses $1.3m to Fraudsters

An African first lady is in serious agony after losing a whopping $1.3 million to fraudsters in her country.
The First Lady of Zimbabwe, Mrs Grace Mugabe
The First Lady of Zimbabwe, Mrs Grace Mugabe, has lost $1.3 million to international fraudsters in a diamond ring deal.
The wife of Robert Mugabe said on Wednesday after she ordered a diamond ring for her 20th wedding anniversary last year, Africa Review said.
She made the admission in an affidavit filed at the High Court in Harare where she is challenging an order for her to return houses she allegedly seized from Jamal Ahmed after the diamond ring deal went sour last December.
Mrs Mugabe, often mocked in Zimbabwe for her penchant for expensive tastes, said in April last year she was linked to Mr Ahmed by the businessman’s wife Zaine during a visit to Dubai.
She said she subsequently tasked the businessman to get her a 10, 07 carat diamond that would have been used to manufacture the ring for her 20th wedding anniversary with the soon to be 93 year-old ruler.
Mrs Mugabe transferred $1, 3 million to Mr Ahmed’s account but he allegedly failed to deliver the diamond or the ring in time for the anniversary on August 17 last year.
President Mugabe’s wife said she demanded her money back after it became clear that she had been duped. The businessman took the First Lady court in December last year accusing her of seizing his properties in Harare and threatening to harm him.
However, Mrs Mugabe denied seizing the properties saying Mr Ahmed was being investigated by the police for his alleged international crimes. She said she was only trying to recover her money.
 
“This was hard earned money saved over the years for this 2oth anniversary. I cannot keep quiet,” she said. “It’s a lot of sacrifice that my husband made from (our) farming and dairy business.”
She claimed that the businessman had promised to pay back the money and was surprised when he turned to the courts.
“The truth is that he spent the money,” she said in the court papers. “If he were honest, he should have refunded money rather than demonize me and my family.”
The First Lady said Mr Ahmed had already paid back $120 000.

Kemi Olunloyo reveals how she got married in prison

I GOT MARRIED LIKE I PROMISED TO IN 2017. Yes I got MARRIED to someone in prison. This is my FIRST SUNDAY away from #PHMax prison. I lean towards Catholism and Islam which I grew up in and attended the Catholic church inside the prison. There are up to 4 churches and a mosque in there plus the Pentecostal churches that visits inmates weekly and bring us the word of God and provisions.

I became a ‘bible reader’. The same bible I ripped in 2016 as being a “storybook” of fiction may have been real. I studied what the prophets of old said. It seems unreal but these things likely happened.

But why are we commercializing religion and brainwashing the congregation? I will become a Woman of God very soon and use my prophetic abilities and bible story knowledge to apply wisdom to your lives. Prison always make all inmates spiritual…right? Hell No! Jesus shows up in the most expected places. Unlike the enemies of the #freethesheeple movement who are so Christ-obsessed? I did not find #Jesus.

He found me! Jesus is my first and new HUSBAND! I have never been married or divorced in my entire life. This will be an everlasting relationship. Say Alleluia! May God forgive your sins too! Don’t be obsessed with religion. Minimize! #HAPPYSUNDAY to all of you and my former inmates. My seat in the front row near our Catholic female leader and 76yo #MamaOwerri will be empty today as Father tells the church about my release last week.”
