FEAR OF A COUP ENGULFS ZIMBABWE

The world woke up to shocking news, this week, that President Robert Mugabe was placed under house arrest by the Zimbabwean National Army. This comes after vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa was sacked for allegedly being disloyal and planning to oust Mugabe.
The army chief General Constantine Chiwenga had warned the ruling party against the purging of politicians who had assisted in the liberation struggle against Britain. ZANU - PF Youth League responded by ridiculing the army and telling Chiwenga to stay in the barracks and not 93 meddle in politics. 
A week later army tanks were seen heading for Harare and a Coup d 'etat was suspected to be in motion. General Chiwenga, however, downplayed the suspicions and said that the army was only performing a usual drill.
Robert Mugabe has been in power since Zimbabwe gained its independence from Britain in 1980. He is now 93 and very frail.

BEER CHURCH POPULAR IN JOHANNESBURG


Churches have never been in alignment with alcohol consumption throughout history, however, one local church has defied this conventional norm. Situated in Orange Farm, Gauteng Gabola Church prides itself in catering for society's outcasts popularly known as 'drunkards.
Having been established only a few months ago this church is already boasting 500 members and appears to be growing rapidly. The congregation is offered alcohol during a sermon and members are baptised with the brand of their choice.
The pastor always starts the service with a glass of whisky and prays for all the alcohol that will be consumed throughout the sermon. He firmly believes that Jesus turned water into wine for this particular purpose and therefore drinkers should not be ashamed to indulge. 
Church services are held in a tavern and everyone is invited!!!

BLACK MONDAY PROTESTS CAUSE RACIAL DIVISION

Monday saw farmers from different parts of South Africa banding together and blocking highways in a bid to be heard by the government. This protest comes in light of a Stellenbosch farmer who was murdered at his home by an unknown assailant.
Farm murders have become a serious issue in the country with farmers venting their frustration and pleading with the government to be assisted.
The march was peaceful in the Free State with no disruptions reported however, in Middleburg, a truck collided with the cars blocking the highway and a few people were injured.
In Johannesburg tensions began to soar when the protestors started waving the old Apartheid flag to on coming traffic. This raised concerns about the farm murders being racialised and Black Monday being used for political reasons.
Many political parties including the ANC, DA, and EFF condemned those who were brandishing the old South African flag and called for unity amongst all South Africans.

LAS VEGAS SHOOTING

A country music concert was tragically cut short in Nevada when a mysterious gunman sprayed a hail of bullets at the audience attending the event. 63-year-old Stephen Paddock was in his 32nd floor apartment, at a hotel, when he opened fire at the unsuspecting crowd. 59 people were killed and nearly 530 were injured. At this point it is still unclear what drove Paddock to commit this massacre with 10 suitcases filled with machine guns found in his hotel room. He then committed suicide upon shooting at the crowd before police officials got to his hotel room. His girlfriend, a Philippines national, was flown to the USA for questioning following the ordeal. Paddock is said to have been a retired accountant with multi-millions to his name along with gambling habits. His brother, Eric, described how shocked he was when he heard of the news.
