Man Caught Masturbating As Woman Squats in The Gym

A gym-goer has been banned for life after he was filmed masturbating as a woman squatted in the gym in South Africa.

The incident occurred at the Virgin Active facility, in Stellenbosch, South Africa on Thursday.

In the viral video, the man dressed in red gym gear is filmed sitting on a mat pointing his phone at the woman, while his other hand was seen moving underneath his red shorts.

The man who caught the pervert on camera wrote: "I want this man's face to go viral. This was at the Virgin Active in Stellenbosch. Absolutely abysmal behaviour."

According to South African media site News 24, the gym is now taking legal action against the member, whose membership has been cancelled and banned from coming close to the gym.

A spokesman for Virgin Active told the website: "Virgin Active is aware of a video circulating on social media and WhatsApp.

"Our clubs are shared spaces and we will absolutely not tolerate depraved behaviour.

"We commenced our investigation as soon as we received the video.

Acting CJN, Mohammed In Age Falsification Scandal

Acting CJN, Mohammed In Age Falsification Scandal

A 46-year-old businessman, Mr Tochi Michael, has dragged Justice Tanko Muhammad, the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) before an FCT High Court over alleged age falsification.

In the originating summon with suit No. FCT/HC/BW/CV/79/2019, filed before the court in April, the petitioner alleged that the CJN deliberately falsified his date of birth.

Michael alleged that the CJN falsified his date of birth from Dec. 31, 1950 as contained in all his official records, including that of WAEC to Dec. 31, 1953 upon his appointment as a judicial officer, NAN reports

The petitioner in the originating summon is praying the court to determine whether such act of the CJN does not constitute a criminal act of perjury, falsification and forgery.

Michael in the originating summon also prayed the court to determine whether by falsifying his date of birth from Dec. 31, 1950 to Dec. 31, 1953 upon being appointed to Nigeria Bench as a judicial officer he has not breached the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The petitioner is also praying the court to determine whether Justice Mohammed has not breached the Code of Conduct for judicial officers and consequently brought the image of Nigeria Judiciary to a state of disrepute and odium.

The petitioner in his reliefs is praying the court for a declaration that the defendant falsified his date of birth and that the defendant has desecrated the breach of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN).

He is also praying for an order directing the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to prosecute the defendant for the offence of perjury and an order which the court may deem it fit.

Counsel to the CJN, Mr Sam Ologunorisa, SAN, informed the court that the plaintiff and his counsel were not in the court.

Ologunorisa told the court that it seems the plaintiff and his counsel were “running away” from the suit they filed, stressing that the court should do the needful in the interest of justice.

“We on our part filed a notice of preliminary objection, a counter affidavit and a written address. We urge the court to deem it fit that the originating summon has been argued.

“We have to look at exhibit III of the originating summon.

“We urge the court to dismiss the suit. The case is meant to scandalise the CJN,” he argued.

Ruling on the prayers, Justice Danlami Senchi of the court said that another opportunity would be given to the petitioner to appear in the court to prove the allegation.

Justice Senchi adjourned the matter until Friday.

He ordered that hearing notices be served on the petitioner.

ASUU Gets Approval For N25b Earned Academic Allowances

ASUU Gets Approval For N25b Earned Academic Allowances

The Federal Government yesterday said it approved additional N25 billion payment as Earned Academic Allowances for the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

It was learnt that the money is part-payment contained in the Memorandum of Action (MoA) the union signed with the government.

The Muhammadu Buhari administration said the N25 billion was aside the N20 billion it released last year to public universities across the country.

The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, broke the news yesterday at his valedictory media briefing in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

Adamu was accompanied by the Minister of State for Education, Prof. Anthony Anwukah, and Information and Culture Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

The minister said all universities in the country had benefitted from the N20 billion released last year by the Buhari-led Federal Government.

He said the Buhari administration inherited an un-implementable agreement of N1.3 trillion when it assumed office in 2015.

Adamu said: “Let me inform you that the Federal Government has just approved an additional N25 billion to be shared to beneficiary institutions directly. Last year, the Federal Government released N20 billion directly to universities. As I speak, all universities have got their share of the N20 billion.

“The sad news is that the N200 billion that was released to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) since 2013 for the universities has not been fully accessed. In specific terms, all the 73 public varsities have accessed the first tranche of 50 per cent of the N200 billion.

“For the second tranche of 40 per cent, only 56 institutions have been able to access their funds. The last 10 per cent, representing the third tranche of the N200 billion, has not been accessed at all.”

In his address, titled: Education for Change: Our Stewardship in the Last Four Years, the minister said the government invested N1.338 trillion on the sector in the last four years.

Adamu said: “In spite of the economic downturn, we have done well in terms of investment in capital expenditure. The Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) interventions in states have recorded a total of N350 billion, while Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETfund) and NEED Assessment interventions have recorded N857 billion with the main ministry and other agencies recording N86 billion, totalling N1.338 trillion in the last four years.

“This is aside the N25 billion just approved for public universities. These figures have nothing to do with personnel and overhead cost in the Education sector, which are also well over N1 trillion.

“Private sector investment in the Education sector – from the basic, secondary and tertiary levels – far outweighs government investment. Our aggregate expenditure in the Education sector (public and private), therefore, exceeds the much touted 20 per cent of our national budget. We are poised to do more.”

Adamu said the Buhari administration had laid a good foundation for dealing with the challenges posed by the out-of-school children and the huge number of adult illiterates.

“If we continue on this path, in the next 10 years, Nigeria’s challenges in this twin direction will be confined to the dustbin of history.

“On basic, secondary and tertiary education, we shall continue on the path of infrastructural and manpower development, increasing capacity and creating unfettered access to all levels of our education for our young people,” he added.

ASUU President Biodun Ogunyemi said the N25 billion was supposed to be released by government to its members in March as part of the MoA it signed with the union.

The union leader said he could not confirm if members of the union had received the funds or not.

The ASUU president said the N20 billion that had been fully accessed by its members was for revitalisation of universities across the country.

Ogunyemi added: “I can’t confirm if the money has been released to our members. We still have issues with the money.

“The N25 billion is part of the Earned Academic Allowances for our members. It is a part-payment. We have been chasing that money to be released to us. The money was supposed to be released on March 28 but the government released only N20 billion, leaving a balance of N5 billion.

“The balance is supposed to be mainstreamed into 2019 budget.”
Malawian President Drags TB Joshua Over Death Prophecy

Malawian President Drags TB Joshua Over Death Prophecy

Malawian President Peter Mutharika on Sunday attacked a popular Nigerian television evangelist over an alleged prophecy that he would die before April 1, state television reported.

“I’m told there is a man in Nigeria called Joshua and he is saying that Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe and Peter Mutharika will die before April 1,” he said, referring to an evangelical preacher called TB Joshua.

“Let me tell you, Joshua… you will fail. What you did in 2012 will not happen again this year,” the president told a rally in the capital Lilongwe.

In 2012, Joshua reportedly predicted the death of a president of an unnamed southern African country. Mutharika’s brother, Bingu, who was president at the time, did die within the predicted timeframe, giving the prophesy strong currency in Malawi.

Mutharika did not say when or where Joshua made the latest prophesy.  In January, Joshua reportedly gave a televised prophecy, telling his congregation to pray for the leaders in southern Africa, saying: “End of February to April this year, peculiar months for Southern Africa.”

But Mutharika questioned Joshua’s credentials as a prophet, pointing to the collapse of a guesthouse in his sprawling Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos in September 2014, which left 116 people dead, mostly South Africans.

“Why did he not foretell this tragedy? “This all shows that he is a liar. He just wants to raise money,” said Mutharika, who is in his mid 70s, pledging to be around in 2019 for the next presidential elections, and in also 2024, when — if re-elected — he will wrap up his last term.

Mutharika came to power in 2014 after defeating Joyce Banda.  Banda, who succeeded Bingu Mutharika, made several visits to the Nigerian headquarters of Joshua’s church and once described the evangelist as her “spiritual father“.

In addition, over 800, 000 fans have signed a petition to show their discontent, calling for a remake of season eight and also that plotlines may have been developed further given more time.
