I keep Recieving Kidnap Threats – Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner has reportedly been receiving kidnap threats.

The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star made the decision to delete all the photographs she’s put up on social media of her four-month-old daughter Stormi, whom she has with her boyfriend Travis Scott, recently after she began receiving “horrible insults” and frightening claims about abducting the baby.

A source told The Sun Online: “There have been an increasing number of trolls on social media calling Stormi ugly, and throwing out really horrible insults.

“It’s been really upsetting for Kylie, because also some of the comments are direct threats to kidnap her. Some people have commented saying it’s all Kylie’s fault because she has exposed her by putting her on social media.

“The haters have always been there, but just getting way, way worse these last few weeks – and calling out Kylie for being a bad mom.”

The terrifying threats have encouraged the 20-year-old beauty to re-evaluate her security and she’s decided to have protection with her “at all times” from now on.

A source explained: “Kylie is terrified – she’s stepping up security. She hardly takes Stormi out in public but is now making sure that she’s got protection at all times.”

Kylie uploaded a photograph on Sunday (10.06.18) of her cuddling up to Stormi but she had cropped the image so that no one could see the little one’s features.

Fans slammed the businesswoman for “cutting her baby out”, to which Kylie hit back: “Yeah i cut my baby out. I’m not sharing photos of my girl right now. (sic)”

This isn’t the first time she has opted to restrict what’s posted on Instagram.

The young entrepreneur took herself out of the limelight while she was pregnant with Stormi because she wanted to focus on the “next chapter” of her life and, although people were speculating that she was expecting her first child, Kylie didn’t confirm the news until she had given birth to the tiny tot and shared a cute montage online.

Prior to having Stormi, Kylie said she’d quit social media altogether when she became a mother, move out to a farm in Malibu and “live life” without her phone.

The reality show is of essence and relevance and was birthed from the desire to reduce unemployment rate among the African youth from tertiary institutions, educate the public with regards to the difference between brand image and brand ambassador, and to give relevant knowledge to the consumer in order to inspire an informed consumer choice, healthy lifestyle and acquiring quality and value for money. It will also serve as a platform for the display of their skills and talents to make them employable to foster significant growth in Africa.

Madam Efua Jecty, the Head of Corporate Operations of the Consultancy said “It is in this vein that Media Men Ghana developed the concept of a PR/Marketing reality show to nurture ideal brand ambassadors. It is a special initiative for corporate Africa with prime focus on corporate Ghana in its first instance”.

She said the show is distinctly designed to realize the most outstanding candidate, unparalleled in “looks and competence”, to be the face and mouthpiece, as an ambassador for the associate brands, to help boost the brands’ market appeal, market value and productivity. The event’s activities are designed to ensure quality return-on-investment and productivity of its associate brands to enhance socioeconomic growth across board.

She continued by saying “Twenty-two (22) most outstanding, smart and presentable young professionals and wannabes with excellent knowledge and exceptional niche in brands communication between the ages of 18 and 35 years, with tertiary qualification or its equivalent shall be selected from 20 African countries, housed in Ghana and groomed for 13 weeks to unearth Africa’s first youth oriented Corporate Model”.

‘The 20 African countries have been grouped into four (4) zones with GHANA, BENIN, TOGO, COTE D’IVOIRE and BURKINA-FASO representing zone 1, NIGERIA, CAMEROON, GABON,

CONGO and ANGOLA representing zone 2, MALI, LIBERIA, SENEGAL, SIERRA LEONE and GUINEA representing zone 3 and SOUTH AFRICA, CONGO BRAZZAVILLE, BOTSWANA, ZAMBIA and KENYA representing zone 4,’ She said.

Meanwhile, the entire operations of this organization shall be under the supervision of a set higher body dubbed the “Supreme Counsel”, made up of selected heads of brands communication and marketing departments of sponsoring institutions.

‘The auditions will take place in two phases. Phase one comprises of 3 online (social media) dynamics or steps that will be executed by applicants on our website, Facebook and or Instagram handles. Phase two is the zonal audition and will take place in the designated countries or zone centres for each zone. The final audition for zones 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be held in Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal and South Africa respectively. Details of each phase will be publicized as and when necessary. In the first instance one candidate will be selected from each country with the exception of Ghana as the host country, where three candidates will be offered the opportunity to partake in the competition. After the second edition of the show, the other African countries will ballot to host the show and each year, the hosting country will have leverage thus, have the highest number of entry or contestants in-house. The main launch of this novelty will be organized in September to usher the qualified contestants into the house after the overall scouting’, she said.

Kwakye Ofosu demands apology from Akufo-Addo over homosexual answer.

Kwakye-Ofosu

A Deputy Communications during former President John Mahama-led administration, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, says President Nana Addo Akufo-Addo must apologize to the people of Ghana for his failure to defend them during an interview on legalizing homosexuality.

Mr Kwakye Ofosu said there are overwhelming Ghanaians who are against homosexuality so for the President, who promised to hold the dignity of this country, to refuse to be emphatic on the position of the country on the matter indicates he has betrayed the nation.

President Akufo-Addo was on Al Jazeera’s Talk to Al Jazeera on Sunday to talk about a wide range of issues concerning the African continent and Ghana. Among the issues were happenings in Togo, Zimbabwe and Kenya. He was also quizzed on Donald J. Trump.

The interview, which was conducted by Al Jazeera presenter, Jane Dutton, had a question on why homosexuality is illegal in Ghana.

In an answer to the question, President Akufo-Addo said “this is the socio-cultural issue if you like…I don’t believe that in Ghana, so far, a sufficiently strong coalition has emerged which is having that impact on public opinion that will say: ‘Change it [the law], let’s then have a new paradigm in Ghana.

I grew up in England; I went to school as a young boy in England and I grew up at a time in England when homosexuality was banned there, it was illegal and I lived in the period when British politicians thought it was anathema to think about changing the law and suddenly the activities of individuals, of groups, a certain awareness, a certain development grew and grew and grew stronger and it forced a change in law.

 

I believe those are the same processes that will bring about changes in our situation.

At the moment, I don’t feel and I don’t see that in Ghana, there is that strong current of opinion that will say: ‘This is something that we need even deal with’. It’s not, so far, a matter which is on the agenda.”

But reacting to the President’s comments on TV3’s New Day hosted by Bright Nana Amfoh on Monday, Mr. Kwakye Ofosu said: “Leaders are expected to represent the people, especially when you travel outside but he did not speak well in that instance”. “He did not cover himself.

He did not defend the position of Ghanaians and what we need is an apology and not defend his position,” the National Democratic Congress (NDC) member explained.

He said “overwhelming [number of] Ghanaians have stated their position against it therefore the president is bound by the people of Ghana to defend them but he did not defend the position on the matter”.

U-turn

The former Deputy Communications Minister said “we are not barbaric like persons who go about torturing those who are involved in it but we are against it and that is why there is widespread anger against the president over the position”.

Mr. Kwakye Ofosu said the President’s position is a mark of a U-turn because some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have openly spoken and kicked against it.

 

“It marks a sudden U-turn because some people in Parliament held press conference to kick against it. The Speaker of Parliament also spoke against it so why is the President afraid to maintain it?”

The Member of Parliament for Effutu Constituency in the Central Region, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin, said the culture of Ghana forbids homosexuality but no one can victimize those who are involved.

He said “our culture does not support same-sex marriage but if someone is involved, can you report him to the police, or can you force him or antagonize him?”

The NPP MP said: “I don’t think that [the President] has introduced any controversy because we do not subscribe to same-sex relationships but if somebody has that orientation, he is a man and wants to have relationship with fellow man…what can you do to the person?”

He added that “if it gets to a stage where Ghanaians would want to discuss it whether or not the laws must be changed, that is also another matter”.

“However, if the same Ghanaians decide to think that there is nothing wrong in having open relationship, it is up to us”.

Mr. Afenyo-Markin noted that “even the Catholic Church in Europe could not sustain the same sex opposition pressure when the state imposed on them”.

“Do you deny the fact that we have a lot of same-sex relationship in Ghana?” the MP asked.

SAD: Man, 22, gets death sentence for killing 2 Americans in Akwamufie.

Yaw-Anokye-Frimpong-620x330

A High Court in Accra has sentenced a 22-year-old man, Yaw Anokye, to death by hanging for the gruesome murder of two African-American women at Akwamufie in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region, in May 2015.

Yaw Anokye was found guilty by a seven-member jury after he had confessed to killing the two women in their 70s.

Delivering her judgment, the Judge, Justice Merley Afua Wood, asked God to have mercy on the soul of the accused as he was about to face death.

The two deceased persons, Mane Lena, 75, and 69-year-old Diop Nzanga, were kidnapped, murdered and buried in a shallow grave in 2015.

Police in Akosombo found the bodies of the two after they were reported to have gone missing.

Their bodies were exhumed after Acting President of the Akwamu Traditional Council dispatched over 70 people to complement a police search for the two when it became apparent they had gone missing.

About the two women

The two, who dealt in batik and tie-dye, had lived in a small settlement near Akwamufie for more than 18 years.

At the time, no reasons were assigned for the murder of the two expatriates, but some linked it to some community disagreement rooted in chieftaincy matters.

The Omanhene of the Akwamu Traditional Area, Odeneho Kwafo Akoto III, expressed shock at the murder of the two American women.

He said Akwamus had over the years lived with many strangers and settlers, including foreigners, on their land, without any problem.

Confession

According to the Daily Graphic, during the committal proceedings at the Accra Central District Court, Frimpong confessed to single-handedly clubbing the two women to death.

The five other accused persons were later discharged.

Frimpong repeated his confession at the Accra High Court during the trial, but stated that it was never his intention to kill them but that his intention was to steal from them.

According to him, he killed for fear of being exposed when they found him stealing in Madam Diop’s room.

Per his testimony, Frimpong went to the apartment to steal, but in the course of the act, Madam Diop returned home and caught him in the act.

Consequently, he struggled with her, overpowered her and tied her hands and also covered her mouth with a piece of cloth, after which he went home.

But out of fear of being exposed by his victim, he returned to the house with a club with the intention of killing her and met Madam Jaana in the apartment.

Frimpong told the court that he hit the two women repeatedly with the club and after killing them, and conveyed their bodies in a wheelbarrow to a nearby farm, dug a shallow grave and buried their bodies.

After the act, he stole GH¢156 from Madam Diop’s room, went to town and drunk alcohol in order to forget about what had happened.

Haunted

After the jury’s verdict last Wednesday, Frimpong was given an opportunity to make a statement before the court delivered its sentence.

He informed the court that he had committed other crimes which the police were currently investigating and said those crimes were haunting him.

“These crimes are haunting me because I know I committed them,’’ he said.

He prayed the court to have mercy on him because he had not intentionally killed the two women.

On death penalty in Ghana

The last time the Ghana recorded an execution of a convict, was in 1993, when then-president John Rawlings ordered the execution of 12 convicts via a firing squad.

According to Amnesty International Ghana, as at September 2016, there were 137 prisoners on death row, who have not been executed. As a result, many have pushed for Ghana to do away with the death penalty from Ghana’s legal system since it is not enforced.

Those opposed against the death penalty have argued that it is not the right punishment for a convicted murderer but retributive.

Death penalty has been in the country’s statute books since the application of the English common law in 1874, but in practice, no execution has been recorded since July 1993.

According to the proponents, much as the sentence may be seen in a wider sense as fairness, it doesn’t deter people from committing such crimes.

Vice President, Dr Bawumia and Family Needs Prayers – Prophet Reindolph Oduro.

Bawumia-and-family-Eagle-Prophet 

A man of God who has been the centre of all the deadly prophecies, on Sunday, during his church service made an outrageous revelation about our very own Vice President, Dr.  Bawumia and his family and urged his congregation to intercede on their behalf. The Founder and General Overseer of God’s Crown Chapel, Prophet Bishop Randolph Oduro Gyebi revealing the prophecy during a church service asked the congregation to pray for the second gentleman of the land without given any advance reasons for it.

 

“let us pray more for Dr. Bawumia and his family”, he said in a video.

However, Eagle Prophet in some minutes video that went viral three weeks ago, preaching on Kumasi-based Abusua FM called for intense prayers for all presenters in Ghana in order not to face any misfortune. The man of God explaining further his revelation, singled out some presenters in Ghana especially; those with the Multimedia Group and appealed to pastors who preach on those networks to fervidly pray for the workers so that all the plans of the devil will not prevail.

 

“God protect our pastors. I know that Adom FM has pastors who pray for them. They should step up their pray for Adom and the workers there especially even though we will also commit it to prayer as God has directed. We commit all presenters in Ghana before God any plans by the evil one against them will not succeed”, Eagle Prophet said.

Judge permanently blocks Trump sanctuary cities order.

920x920

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Donald Trump’s executive order to cut funding from cities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities.

U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the administration’s argument that the executive order applies only to a relatively small pot of money and said Trump cannot set new conditions on spending approved by Congress.

The judge had previously made the same arguments in a ruling that put a temporary hold on the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The Trump administration has appealed that decision to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

“The District Court exceeded its authority today when it barred the President from instructing his cabinet members to enforce existing law,” Department of Justice spokesman Devin O’Malley said in a statement late Monday. “The Justice Department will vindicate the President’s lawful authority to direct the executive branch.”

Orrick’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, San Francisco and Santa Clara.

San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera said the ruling was “a victory for the American people and the rule of law.”

“President Trump might be able to tweet whatever comes to mind, but he can’t grant himself new authority because he feels like it,” he said in a statement.

A lawyer for the DOJ argued during a hearing before Orrick in April that the executive order applied to only a few grants that would affect less than $1 million for Santa Clara County and possibly no money for San Francisco.

But the judge disagreed, saying in his rulings that the order was written broadly to “reach all federal grants” and potentially jeopardized hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to San Francisco and Santa Clara.

He cited comments by the president and Attorney General Jeff Sessions as evidence that the order was intended to target a wide array of federal funding. And he said the president himself had called it a “weapon” to use against recalcitrant cities.

The Trump administration separately has also moved to withhold one particular law enforcement grant from sanctuary cities, prompting a new round of lawsuits that are pending.
