Interesting: Zimbabwean Man Mourns Chicken, Holds Funeral Service For It

I personally love animals and always get upset one they are treated badly. But I don’t think that affection is so intense to extent of holding a funeral for them when they die just like this man from Zimbabwe did.

According to the story we gathered from H-Metro, a 38-year-old year old man identified as Philemon Murefu reportedly conducted a funeral service for his chicken which he had been keeping as a pet. Not just that. He dresses up his dogs as well as walking with his chickens on his shoulders.

He caused quite a stir in his neighborhood Two weeks ago, when he invited friends and relatives for a funeral service to mourn his bird.

Below is an excerpt of the interview with H-Metro:

“When I was a young boy, my mother had so much passion for animals so I was raised in an environment where they were so many domesticated animals.

“I am really affected whenever an animal which I would have kept dies, the same feeling I get when losing a loved one is the same when any of my pets dies.

“I shed tears when one of my chickens dies, the bird was a special bed to me because for the two years I had stayed with it was friendly and loving to me.

“It died when I was not at home and I was informed about the death over the phone and I told them not to bury it because I wanted to give it a befitting send off,” said Philemon.

He said that though some of his neighbours and relatives despised him for mourning the bird he did not stop doing what he thought was right.

“I got so many insults from people close to me especially some of my relatives and friends they were accusing me of doing something that was taboo but they did not understand the bond I had with Beauty.

“When I came back home I mourned my friend and I buried it at the corner of the house, I invited friends and those who were willing to me came and we mourned my bird and everything went well.

“I am now looking forward to put a tombstone at the grave, what I did was temporary but I am hoping to raise money soon and do a proper thing,” he said.

Apart from the love he had for chickens, Philemon is also known for dressing two dogs with expensive clothes.

“I have two dogs namely Bush and Masket and one of the things I do every month is I set aside a budget of US$5 per dog which will be meant to buy clothes.

“I don’t treat my dogs like what I see most people in Mabvuku doing, I treat them as my own children that’s why I buy them clothes.

“They both have a wardrobe full of clothes that most people don’t have, I buy these clothes from local boutiques as well as from vendors.”

Man demands his bride price after he found out his wife is not a virgin

Manyeva Dlamini has taken the family of his ex-wife, Ruth Thembisile Sibiya, to court to have his cattle back. Dlamini contends that Sibiya lied about being a virgin.

A man in Swaziland has demanded from his in-laws his 24-cow bride price back after reportedly discovering that his wife was not a virgin at the time they got married.

However, Sibiya denies ever making such a claim. She also insists that Dlamini knew that she was not a virgin and that she was already three months pregnant on their wedding day. Court papers reportedly indicate that Dlamini, who is a teacher, began his relationship with Sibiya while she was still his student in high school.

She said:

“After I completed school in 1995, Dlamini, who was far older than me, insisted that we get married but I refused to marry him since I wanted to pursue my studies.” She also states that she met and fell in love with a man named Themba Thwala in 1998 prior to marrying Dlamini.

Banyankole: The Tribe in Uganda Which Allows Bride’s Aunt to Sleep With Groom Before Marriage

Africa is one of the continents of the world with diverse traditions. Earlier today we reported about how some African countries prepare their women for marriage. However, there is one tribe in Uganda whose way of preparing its women for marriage differs completely from other African tribes.

The question now is ‘How much influence should aunties have on their nieces? In many African cultures, aunties provide counselling to their young nieces as they age from adolescence to adulthood. When it comes to marriage, these aunties prepare their nieces for the challenges that lie ahead.

But for the Banyankole people in Southwestern Uganda, the aunt does more than the above, especially during the marriage.

When a couple wants to get married, the primary responsibility of the bride’s aunt is to carry out a sexual check on both her niece and her nephew-in-law. Essentially, the aunt does this by having sex with the groom to check his potency and virility.

She also has to “test” if the bride is still a virgin before they are allowed to consummate their marriage.

In other traditions, the aunt is said to go as far as listening in or watching as the bride and groom have sex in order to prove the couple’s potency.

Inasmuch as this practice may sound weird, it shows how the people of Banyankole hold virginity in high esteem.

As soon as a Banyankole girl is eight, she goes through a lot of restrictions to prepare her for marriage.

When other children her age in other cultures are out having fun and playing, a girl in this part of Uganda is mostly kept indoors, where she is fed beef and millet porridge and forced to drink milk in large quantities so that she becomes fat.

Being fat is synonymous with beauty among the Banyankoles.

When she starts developing breasts, she is also asked by her parents to abstain from sexual activities.

It is the duty of a Banyankole father to find a wife for his son as he pays the bridewealth as well. This consists of some cows, goats and pots of beer, depending on how rich a person is.

Once the bride price is paid, the marriage preparations begin. On the wedding day, there is a lot of feasting at the bride’s home, where the father is expected to slaughter a bull.

At the bridegroom’s home, there is another feast where the marriage is consummated. This is after the bride’s aunt has “tested” her niece’s purity and slept with the groom to also check his potency.

The over 500 school children who were already salivating and thanking government for the continuation of the school feeding programme had to swallow their saliva as a group of young hefty men destroyed the food and vandalised the pantry.

It was later alleged that, the young men were ordered by the constituency chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the area, Nana Asafoankye Badu whose wife is the caterer for the school feeding programme in the school.

This was allegedly due to the fact that, the NPP’s chairman had a serious quarrel with his wife, and therefore decided to cancel the contract since it was through his influence that his wife was awarded the contract.

Teachers, pupils and some parents who were around when the incident happened were seen helpless as they could not stop the perpetrators for the sake of their lives.

“Some people are above the laws of Ghana. These same Asafoankye boys beat a fellow NPP man mercilessly here in the full glare of people, but nothing happened to them”, a concerned citizen told Today.

Meanwhile residents of Wassa Akropong and its environs whose wards attend the school have appealed to the Western Regional Minister, Ministry of Education and the President to, as a matter of urgency call Nana Asafoankye Badu to order and stop him from further trampling over other people’s rights.

CHECK OUT SOME OF THE COMMENTS FROM NPP ABETTORS ON KEN AGYAPONG’S COMMENT I WILL BRING DOWN NPP..

Kennedy Agyapong who appears unstoppable in his recent attacks at some members of his own party, has vowed to bring down the New Patriotic Party (NPP), before he is disgraced.

“If you are not careful with people who helped you or us to come to power and give them this reward…… there is this boy called Siriboe whose father is a council of state member. How much did his father pay? You are there undermining him….NPP boy. I mean those NPP people who have vowed to collapse my business saying they will bring me down…If they joke the things I will say In Ghana……the way we won the elections. We did not win the elections on fair grounds. I am warning them for the last time. If they say they will bring me down, I will be the first to bring the NPP down before I am disgraced”, he revealed on Oman Fm, his own radio station.

According to him, he is among those who want the betterment of the party for fear that when the NDC returns to power it will spell his doom.

“Those of us who have shown our faces and ready to die for the party, if care is not taken and the NDC returns to power we are finished”, he disclosed.

This is not the first time Mr Kennedy Agyapong is raising concerns about what the NDC might subject him to should luck smile on the party in 2020.

Last month, he revealed that jailing him is among three options the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is weighing in the event it wins back power 2020.

“My life is on the line. Why is that when Ibrahim Mahama commits a crime I should speak about it but when my own party member commits same I should be quiet”, he asked.

Commenting on recent developments in the NPP with some bigwigs scheming to bring him down with planned meetings at Alisa Hotel in Accra, he said he will not sit down while persons who did little to improve the fortunes of the party bring the current administration under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo down.

“God has blessed me and they will all be disgraced. Whatever they are doing will fall flat because I am fighting a just course. Na true I go talk”, he explained.

“I will correct all wrongs in NPP because should NDC come into power now, they will either kill me, collapse my business or find a flimsy charge against me to be jailed”, he alleged.

@Joey: I agree with your contribution 100%, especially the portion that says; ” There is no way you can bring NPP down YOU SIMPLY CANNOT DO IT “. This is fact as experience has shown over the course of the party’s political history.At this point of the NPP’s young administration vis-a-vis the current socio-economic and political status as bequeathed to us by the NDC government, we don’t need tough blanket talks like this. We need constructive cautions, persistent honest behind the scene talks, patience and efficient investigative systems to arrive at best conclusions.

Are you saying all your efforts are just to get contracts Then how different are you from the hyenas in the NDC?Please stop this You are beginning to bore some of us.Remember someone lost an eye fighting for the NPP.Pipe down .You talk far too much.

Kennedy Agyepong you are too much and the talking is too much. The bitterness in you doesn’t make you a patriotic citizen a patriotic citizen doesn’t ask for what the country can do for him,you are behaving like give and take because you helped the party you want the party to pay you back with huge contracts,you want to dictate to everyone even including the president to do what you say or you threaten with I will pull everyone down and is that how to be in a party or society? Your good works must be appreciated by all at all cost? My friend, NPP didn’t come into Ghana’s politics just yesterday? Some people sacrificed their lives and businesses because of the NPP eg B.A Mensah, Appenteng Mensah, Mr Addison, Appiah Menkah,Dr Sarfo Adu etc a whole lot of people and even the have not who were killed by ndc hoodlums all because of NPP, look at how the youth sacrificed their lives to get this party into office and you don’t think of them but your business? How old is this party in government t for you to be shuttling from asempa to your own Oman talking talking like you are the only person who sacrificed for the party? There are so many silent ones who have kept quiet for the government to be on its toes why Kennedy Agyepong,why do you think you have to bring down something you weren’t part of those who formed it? Membership of a party is by choice not force and I don’t think somebody made that choice for you so why the talking it’s too much oooo ton! Know that you can’t dictate to the party because the party is bigger than you and even not the president can do that. You are somebody I’ve vowed if even I’m dying I will never demand from you because it’s not worth it. The talking is too much, I was once your fan but not now because I can’t take the talking any more. You’ve been voted to represent your people in parliament but I don’t hear you talking there but always at asempa fm, don’t you have anywhere in parliament to express your grievance than to come on air? You are losing most of your fans to be honest with you and you making a ridicule of yourself to your enemies in both the NPP and the ndc. I don’t know if you need help because I can’t understand your actions ,you are too extreme.

Honorable Ken, some of us used to love you but we are beginning to get tired of your verbal outburst.I want to tell you here and now that it is almighty Allah who brought NPP to power not any individual. Not even the president or his vice brought the party to power but Allah. We understand that you contributed towards the victory but remember you are not the only one who sacrifice for the victory. Remember someone lost his eye through the struggle to this victory. In fact, you need to tone down because you talk too much. No individual is bigger than the NPP party and that includes you and any other person like you. Honorable Ken, I put it to you that you can never bring NPP down. Remember, the party is bigger than any individual and that includes you. You help the party to victory and so all contracts should be given to you? This is not NDC party where there is no rule and law.I am expecting the party hierarchy to call you to order because it is too much already. Try to tone down or you will face sanction as any other party member. NPP promised to improved the living standard of Ghanaians and that is what we are praying to Allah to grant the president good health and wisdom to fulfill his promise to Ghanaians. Again, you cannot bring NPP down.Anyway,you still remain my hero but truth must be told no matter how bitter it is.
Name: A concerned citizen
You have only one vote to vote and how are you just a single person going to do that? Please, i will advise you to stop that bitterness which is not good for your health. If you feel you have a genuine case go to court with your evidence or keep quiet.

I dare you Ken to bring the NPP down. I am so annoyed with your childish utterances. I am not a card bearing member of the elephant fraternity but trust you ken I will never vote NDC.

Somebody whom Kennedy respect should call him and advise him for me.An elder of a society should behave like the “Cat and not the dog” Please Ken if you know of anything that is wrong, the way you say it and where you say it all matters. I know if you tell President Nana Addo about anything wrong and it is ceditle he will take action. True is some of us are getting disappointed. Please do not get me wrong Ken, I don’t support corruption in any way and form a bit but the way and where you talk about it matters.We beg you be decorum in what and how you say things.You have told the whole world that your party did not win the election and this is very serious so ken a beg you

Name: Duncan
Honourable Ken I really appreciate all the effort you have made in the past for your party. I really think you need to tone down a bit on the way you talk on radio and tv.The people of Ghana will never forgive you if somehow you help the NDC to make a comeback in 2020. It is unthinkable that these people should come back .If you have grievances I’m sure there are sane ,reasonable people in the party who would listen to you.The strident constant talk on radio is not helpful at all. I totally disagree that the NPP did not win the last election. Ghanaians must be really s-t-upid to have gone and voted for John Mahama. They are the ones who were not allowed to cheat.I think you talk too much and you seem to be constantly on short fuse The NDC will take advantage of that and trust me this bit about NPP not winning the election will be their mantra for the next weeks on every radio station. If you in any way help the NDC come back trust me the NDC will not be your only enemies.
