In this video by PBS, a Nigerian tricycle driver and his wife were shot because
 he refused to give a $10 bribe (Note – his story was concluded at the end
of the video). 

Everyday in
Nigeria, police officers routinely demand bribes, local government leaders
pocket money meant for schools and the former national security advisor is
accused of stealing billions from the military. As part of a week-long series
“Nigeria: Pain and Promise,” PBS reports on the challenges of
fighting corruption.

According to
Buzzfeed, Uganda is the 13th most beautiful country in the whole world! Uganda
is rated more beautiful than Nepal, Australia, Norway, Phillipines, Brazil, and
India. Several African countries made the list including Namibia, Tanzania, and
Kenya. South Africa was named the most beautiful of the 20 countries, and
Nigeria did not make the list at all.

Below are
pictures of some beautiful places in Uganda:

I once talked about a
young South African pastor known for giving his Church members live
snake, stone, hair, pieces of clothing and other crazy things to eat. He also
sits on them, rides them like horses, and there was a time his members stripped
naked because he commanded them to be hot. 
Well, Pastor Penuel Mnguni of the
End Times Disciples Ministries, ran into hardluck over the weekend.

According to a report by Daily Sun
SA, a mob of villagers, led by a South African youth vigilante group (the
Economic Freedom Fighters) burnt Penuel’s church at Soshanguve in Tshwane on
Sunday. 

Villagers led by a vigilante group, beat pastor Penuel and burnt down his church.
Sources say he had been in hiding recently, as community members denounced what he was doing, calling it an ‘abomination.’
The villagers described pastor Penuel’s activities as abominable.
Witnesses testify that church members were also beaten and tied up, before the police officers came to quell the storm. 



Below is a video of the moment the Pastor was tied along with two of his faithfuls. 

Zimbabwean first lady Grace Mugabe
continues to position herself to succeed her husband by holding rallies in
different parts of the country and verbally attacking party members who
refuse to back her. In a recent rally, she handed out bottles of water
bearing her image and the words “Mother of the nation.”

 “You are not going to
gag me, I have my mouth… I will not tolerate nonsense within the party,”
she said, during a rally in Harare where she addressed
unnamed Zanu-PF officials who she blames for factionalism within the
party.
She also distributed 250 tonnes of
maize and 115 tonnes of rice to the people at the rally.
At her previous rallies over the
last month, Zimbabwe’s first lady Grace Mugabe made it clear that nobody within
the ruling party was above party discipline.
There have been factions forming
within Zanu-PF, seemingly linked to who should succeed her 91-year-old husband.
In particular she warned war
veterans, many of whom fought in the liberation war and spearheaded the
invasions of white-owned farms, that there too could face disciplinary hearings
if they threatened the party’s united front.
Afterwards, the 50-year-old first
lady faced a backlash with war veterans accusing her of not respecting them.
Today at her Mbare rally (see
12:36 post) she hit back.
“Some war veterans are saying
they will never listen to me because I never participated in the liberation war
against British colonial rule. Zimbabwe is for everyone.”

So glad
Sierra Leone has been declared Ebola-free after 42 days with no new
cases. 

Sierra
Leone’s President Ernest Bai Koroma made the announcement during a ceremony
after being declared Ebola-free by the World Health Organization. The
country will now enter a 90 day period of surveillance to ensure early
detection of any possible new cases.  
Nearly 4,000 people lost their
lives from the disease in the West African country. Ebola killed more than
11,300 people in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea since March 2014. 

And below is a Liberian song that I totally enjoyed titled “Ebola must go!”

I’ve been contemplating becoming a raw vegan for a long time, so watching this video is really fueling that desire.
The
video was presented by the Swedish supermarket chain Coop, showing the effect
of eating organic food in the bodies of a family of five.

Also, below is a video by Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram, a lady I really admire. If you hear I become a raw vegan, blame her videos 🙂
Kristiana is a pioneer in the local, organic food co-operative movement. The founder of the largest raw, organic produce co-operative in the U.S., she has been 100% raw for over nine years. An exemplification of all that she wishes to create, she is a leading visionary in the raw movement, especially in Houston, TX.
