Rwanda’s Paul Kagame Dismisses Rebel Claims in Nyungwe Forest Areas


For the past few months, there has been concerns of security threats in Rwanda with reports that the country’s government led by President Paul Kagame is currently vulnerable to being put to an end by a group of rebels who have already overran some parts including Nyungwe areas.

However, according to Paul Kagame himself, this is all hoax. He has dismissed all claims of rebel attacks in any part of his country, terming them ‘passing stories’.

“People are celebrating and talking about how they are now overrunning some places in the country,…. This is just a passing story, they don’t know what they are talking about,” Kagame commented on recent claims by a one Callixte Sankara that Rwanda’s government forces (RDF) were already defeated in several battles around Nyunge Forest in the South west of the country.

Callixte Sankara is the spokes person of the Rwanda Movement for Democratic Change (MRCD) and had earlier claimed that his rebel forces were in full control of the Northern regions of Nyungwe Forest, specifically areas bordering Nyamagabe and Nyaruguru sectors.

Kagame added on by warning off all those who are behind these false reports to his citizens to have in mind to provoke a war from which they mistakenly think will benefit.

“They are trying to hide their own problems and create a scenario where war happens,we refused this provocation” He added on.

Mean while, the security situation in Rwanda remain tense, that has led to a number of actions being taken the government including closing its borders with neighboring countries. The government has also come out on several occasions to publicly accuse dissident General Kayumba Nyamwasa of planning a war against the ruling government, a charge that Kayumba has always dismissed, saying he believes in the peaceful resolution of political disagreements.

Wema Sepetu’s Mother Confused Over Daughter’s Bisexual Ways


Former Miss Tanzania Wema Sepetu might have only changed her lifestyle but not her old ways regarding her controversial love life. She is undeniably not having it any easy after her mum exposed her online that she is a full blown lesbian and even has a girlfriend she has been living with.

According to word making rounds on different social media platforms, the Tanzania former beauty queen and an ex girl friend to Bongo Flava singer and dancer Diamond Platinumz has stuck to her old bisexual ways, an act that her mother has been against for long till she failed to swallow it any more.

Judging from an audio of Mama Sepetu leaked online, you cant help but pitty the old lady who has been standing in for her daughter for quite a long time. She is heard asking Sepetu’s friends to talk to her daughter who seems to be losing herself. Just like any parent, it’s clear to see that the lady is not ready to accept the fact that her daughter now prefers fellow women to men.

It is said that Mama Sepetu has been discouraging Wema from being friends with women who are only looking for intimacy from her but she has always been turning a deaf ear to her mother’s advise, and now she is dating a lady identified as Diana.

Wema Hospitalized

After learning this, it is said that Wema Sepetu’s blood pressure went up and rushed to a hospital where she is now under serious treatment. She was not only affected by the public embarrassment but also the nasty comments left by fans who couldn’t hold back from bashing her for practicing the devilish act.

Wema’s Past Bisexual Behavior

This is not the first time Wema is baeing accused of dating a fellow woman. Four years ago, pictures of Wema kissing fellow women including a one identified as Aunty Ezekiel stirred lots of discussions and rumours on social media on whether she is a lesbian or Bisexual.

However, in clarifying her acts depicted in the viral pictures by then, she told journalists during an interview in Tanzania that it was normal as it would be to kissing any other person such as her mother, sister or any one else closer.

Kissing on the lips for girls to girls is very okay…. Yes i kissed her like i kiss any person who is so close to me….. It’s not only her, i kiss my mum, my daughter, ma sister , people who are close to me i kiss them

She continued to defended herself saying that kissing someone who is very close to her especially ladies is a normal thing and a sign of love, no other way round as many has to put it. Let’s wait on how she will defend her self this time.

Meanwhile, as any parent could do, we have learnt that Sepetu’s mum is now arguing all gossip tabloids to hold off from attacking her daughter whose health condition seems unstable at the moment.

Singer Avril Nyambura Not Ready Yet to Disclose the Father of Her Child


For the fans of the Kenyan Singer Avril Nyambura who are eager to learn about the daddy of your superstar’s baby, a little more patience is requested.

According to the singer herself, she is not yet ready to disclose the identity of the man who fathered her kid though she keeps on asserting that she is taken.

During an exclusive interview with Citizen Radio recently in Kenya, the singer confessed that she is dating someone who is very much involved with the upbringing of their kid.

Singer Avril Nyambura

“I am taken…… He is very dedicated and committed to Me. He is a really present father……. I wanted a child and I feel so fulfilled as it’s an amazing feeling. I will introduce my family when I want to but not now. I am learning to live a private life and people close to me know exactly what’s going on and I would like to keep it like that.” She said.

Kenyan Singer Jblessing

Most worrying is that she keeps her man so secretive to the extent of leaving no clues on who he might be. Some believe the singer got the child with producer Jblessing though the two have never agreed or denied leaving the media into guessing.

Malawi’s Car Hire Players Association in the Offing


Blantyre — Malawi’s car hire players are scheduled to form an association with an aim to ease challenges the sector is facing.

Countrywide Car hire Managing Director Mike Mlombwa, who is championing the formation of the association said among others the association will help Government to promote tourism.

Mlombwa told Malawi News Agency that above all the group will help players in the industry speak with one voice.

“So far companies that people can hire vehicles like Zoom, SS rent a car hire, Countrywide, Adams, Elvis and others have already shown interest for the grouping to be formed.

“There are a lot of benefits that members will get from the association. Apart from speaking with one voice when dealing with policy makers, the association will also help in the enhancement of standards in the industry.

“The grouping is going to have a secretariat and through the membership fees and other related fees, members will be able to be assisted where the need arises,” said Mlombwa.

He said it is worrisome that car hire business is not protected in the country saying as it stands now any person can get up and start the business using reconditioned vehicles which he described as unfortunate.

Mlombwa added that in a few weeks to come, he shall visit central and Northern region to mobilise car hire players to organize themselves in preparing for the formation of the grouping.

“After visiting all regions it is when we shall set a date but possibly early October this year where all players can come together so that the grouping can be formed.

I am just speaking on my friends as we are waiting for the formation of the group and elections shall be done later,” he said.

Mlombwa said government has identified tourism as one of the key growth areas to propel Malawi in the next 50 years hence the need for industry players to be organised.

“In the coming days or weeks we will be inviting all players to a meeting where an executive committee will be elected. We want the car hire owners to avail themselves at this meeting not just sending representatives,” he added

He added that through the association, members will be able to share big contracts among themselves to ensure that there is no monopoly of business.

“In addition, the association will also be providing security where members want to get some loans to boost their capital,” he said.
