Unearthing Facts You Didn’t Know About Ivan Semwanga As Body Arrives In Uganda (PHOTOS)

The body of Ivan Semwanga finally arrived in Uganda on Sunday afternoon ahead of the burial on Tuesday. Ivan died last week while undergoing treatment at Steve Biko hospital in South Africa. 

On Friday 12th May, while in his master bedroom, Ivan suffered a stroke and was rescued by his maid who heard him shout asking for help and he was rushed to the hospital where he was operated on and remained in a comma for 12 days before he passed away.

Just like other loving and caring celebrity fathers, Ivan was a great father to his three sons. From taking them to exotic holidays, buying them some of the most expensive designer shoes and clothing to pampering them with gifts all the time and even giving them the best education.

Is This A Pot Belly Or Baby Bump? Bahati’s Fans Suspect Diana Marua Is Pregnant

It has taken long for controversial gospel artiste Bahati to reveal that Diana Marua, a video vixen is his girlfriend.

The two started getting cosy late last year after weeks of releasing his Mapenzi wedding video, where he featured Marua as his bride. Diana who is head over heels in love with Mtoto Wa Mama has been linked with dating many celebrities.

What fans don’t understand is, how fast she is growing a belly. Personally, I think this could be thanks to the many pizzas and madondo she is being fed by Bahati. However, some fans think the lass might be pregnant for the Barua singer.

SAD! Class Six Student Defiled By Gang Members Dressed In Police Uniform In Bungoma

The rate at which gang members are torturing residents in Kenya is very alarming.

A class six pupil was defiled repeatedly in a Friday night attack by a gang dressed in police uniform in Khachonge village, Bungoma county.

Five other people have been hospitalized in critical condition with serious deep cuts. Among them is a shopkeeper who received a deep cut on his head as he resisted gang members.

Police have launched a manhunt for the twelve men said to have been armed with a pistol and other crude weapons including pangas, an axe and rungus.

The gang broke into homes and shops and stole cash and other valuables, including phones.

Residents accused police of failing to respond to the attack in good time.
A resident who sought anonymity said insecurity has escalated in the area over the past four months following the release of criminal gang members from prison some time last year.

“We are appealing to the county commissioner Joshua Chepchieng to have his officers carry out regular patrols especially at night as the election date nears because we feel very unsafe,” he said.

Police asked those with information on the gang members to share it with them and assured that it would be treated confidentially.

The girl’s body was moved to the mortuary, while Wangeci is expected in court on Monday. Neighbors said Wangeci had beaten the child on Friday evening and also woke up to beat her on Saturday.

Is It For The Haters? Bahati And His ‘Older’ Girlfriend Diana Marua Prove Their LOVE After Baby Drama

Bahati has been in the headlines for the wrong reasons in the last couples of days after he revealed his daughter on social media, after keeping her a secret for 2 years.

Most of his fans were not happy for the move while others congratulated him for unveiling her and being a good father. But a big percentage of his fans attacked him for sharing photos of the little girl, Mueni, without appreciating or thanking her mother but instead, giving all the credit to his now girlfriend Diana Marua.

Things blew up when his video vixen girlfriend shared a photo on Instagram while holding his daughter, and that’s when friends to Bahati’s baby mama and relatives came out to bash her, telling her that it’s “disrespectful” and “insensitive”.

According to the family, Diana did not ask for consent from the mother of the child when she posted the picture, actually, none of them, including Bahati did.

But now, Bahati and Diana Marua seem to be going on about their business like nothing happened. They just came back to Nairobi from Zanzibar, where they were shooting a video for a new song, which may include Yamoto Band singer Aslay.

Sorry Tiffah! Here’s Why Diamond Platnumz Will NEVER Allow His DAUGHTER To Be a Singer

Celebrated Bongo star Naseeb Abdul Juma aka Diamond Platnumz recently spoke about whether he would want his children to follow his footsteps in the musical career, and his answer was very interesting.

The Salome hitmaker is in Nairobi for a mega performance and before the big day, he got to sit down with Larry Madowo for an interview on The Trend, where he talked about his family, lifestyle, and his children.

During the show, Diamond Platnumz also talked about the death of Zari’s baby daddy and ex-husband, Ivan Semwanga, who passed away after heart-related complications.

Zari-Ivan(2)

He revealed that he could not cancel the show, but revealed that he was going to fly to Uganda for Ivan’s burial after the show.

It’s been a tough week for our family and especially Zari but then I thought it would not be good to cancel my shows in Nairobi because this is something we had planned for a long time. But then, from here I will be headed to Uganda to pay my last respects to Ivan.

Away from that, Diamond also talked about his children and Zari revealing how they have changed his perspective on life, making him more focused and working harder.

Wacha! Diamond Platnumz Confesses That He Was a ‘FISI’ Before He Met Hot Wife Zari, As He Reveals What He Loves About Her

When asked if he would want his children to pursue music in the future, he revealed that he would allow only his son, Prince Nilan to become an artiste, but not his daughter.

According to him, when a girl is exposed to such kind of limelight in music, she tends to get a lot of suitors because of the fame and beauty which means a lot of men will be on her case, something he would not be comfortable with at all.

Watamla sana. Mwanamke kama mwanamke, kweli anakuwa anatongozwa na watu tofauti tofauti. Lakini unapokuwa sasa ni msanii, watu wanakujua wanakuwa wengi, kwa hivyo kutongozwa kunakuwa kwingi, sasa da! Wataniuwa kwa pressure.

Lack Of Sleep Causes Your Brain To EAT ITSELF To Clean Up Worn-out Cells, Study Reveals

Your brain starts to eat itself if it hasn’t had enough sleep, according to a new study.

Researchers studied lab mice, and found that ‘clean-up’ cells were more active in their brains when they were sleep-deprived.

The cells, known as astrocytes, act like mini Hoovers in the brain, sweeping up cells as the brain’s connections become weak and break apart.

‘We show for the first time that portions of synapses are literally eaten by astrocytes because of sleep loss,’ lead author Michele Bellesi told New Scientist.

According to the research team at Italy’s Marche Polytechnic University, the seemingly alarming process is actually a positive thing.

couple-sleeping-touching

‘They [our synpases] are like old pieces of furniture,’ Bellesi said. ‘And so [they] probably need more attention and cleaning.’

But he added that sleep-deprived brains showed ominous signs of activity that leads to Alzheimer’s.

In sleep-deprived mice, brain cells called microglials were more active.

‘We already know that sustained microglial activation has been observed in Alzheimer’s and other forms of neurodegeneration,’ Michele said.

The news comes on the heels of research that showed having too little sleep could put people at risk from heart disease.

Dreams

The study found that having less than six hours sleep a night was associated with a higher risk of death in people with metabolic syndrome – a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.

Researchers said the effect was particularly strong in those with elevated blood pressure or poor glucose metabolism.

People with a common cluster of risk factors for heart disease and diabetes were around twice as likely to die of heart disease or stroke as people without the same set of risk factors if they failed to get more than six hours of sleep, according to the study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

For those who got more sleep, the risk of death was more modest.

Did She Say YES? Singer And KBC Presenter Mr. Tee Proposes To Long Time Girlfriend

Mr.Tee is without doubt one of the gospel singers who have survived the industry without controversies. Tee, who hosts the Angaza gospel show on KBC has found love.

From his photos, it is evident that the singer is head over heels and he went down on both knees to propose to his long time girlfriend, in what seemed to be a church arrangement.

The TV host further called her his ‘future wife’, he is confident that the two will have a happily ever after.

mr t

With a lot of excitement he went on to write;

“When you found me all I had was faith, my life was shattered and I had given up on love. I went down on both knees on the altar because I stand strong when am on my knees, I stand tall when am down on both knees, am a product of the altar and my life is a product of the altar. On this altar you said yes to my proposal. The greatest witness I wanted to witness was Jesus. Thank my prophet, my co worker and my wife to be. Thanks for saying yes. May the lord lead us because perfect are His ways.
I love you.”

Lets just wish Mr.Tee all the best as we wait for the wedding bells!

No INFORMAL Relationships! Cohabiting Couples In Burundi ORDERED To WED By The End Of 2017

Cohabiting couples in Burundi have until the end of the year to get married or face legal consequences.

The government order comes after President Pierre Nkurunziza launched a campaign “to moralise society”.

A government spokesman said a crackdown on informal relationships was needed to combat a population explosion.

He said too many schoolgirls were getting pregnant and men were taking advantage of women by cohabiting with several simultaneously.

Burundi has been in crisis since 2015 when Mr Nkurunziza, a born-again Christian, announced he would run for a controversial third term.

Whiter Wedding

‘We want order’

Interior ministry spokesman Terence Ntahiraja told AFP news agency that church and state-sanctioned weddings were the solution to the country’s population explosion – and a patriotic duty.

“We want Burundians to understand that everyone is responsible for his life, we want order in this country,” he said.

“All this is done within the framework of the patriotic training programme,” he said, referring to an initiative launched by President Nkurunziza.

It is not clear exactly what sanctions those not tying the knot will face.

However, one farmer quoted by AFP said local officials had already threatened him and his partner with a fine and said any child born out of wedlock would not qualify for free education or medical treatment.

The farmer, named only as Pierre, said he had not married because he could not afford the bride price demanded by his partner’s family.

Hundreds of people have since died since Mr Nkurunziza launched a bid for a third term. But the country had been relatively calm in recent months.

Beware! SUGAR Is Fuelling Various Forms Of CANCER Scientists Admit. Find Out How

A sugar-rich diet may be fuelling various forms of cancer, as new research confirms a long-suspected belief.

Previous studies have suggested that tumours thrive off sugar, using it as energy to mutate and spread across the body.

Now scientists have shown one type of cancer – which can be found in the lungs, head, and neck, oesophagus, and cervix – has more of a sweet tooth than others.

Squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) was more dependent on sugar to grow, the University of Texas at Dallas experts found.

This form of the disease used higher levels of a protein that carries glucose to cells to enable them to multiply, they discovered.

180207142-sugar

Lead author Dr Jung-whan Kim said: ‘It has been suspected that many cancer cells are heavily dependent on sugar as their energy supply.

‘But it turns out that one specific type – squamous cell carcinoma – is remarkably more dependent.

‘This type of cancer clearly consumes a lot of sugar. One of our next steps is to look at why this is the case.’

Writing in the journal Nature Communications, he warned the findings were worrying because ‘as a culture, we are very addicted to sugar’.

He added: ‘Excessive sugar consumption is not only a problem that can lead to complications like diabetes, but also, based on our studies and others, the evidence is mounting that some cancers are also highly dependent on sugar.

40D0A33700000578-4544382-image-a-53_1495789569017

‘We’d like to know from a scientific standpoint whether we might be able to affect cancer progression with dietary changes.’

Health officials across the world have stood firm on their stance towards sugar in recent years, despite growing evidence showing it to potentially fuel tumour growth.

Instead, they highlight the fact that all cells, not just cancerous ones, require energy, which is found in the form of glucose, to survive.

Without a sufficient supply of the sugar, each cell in the body would struggle to perform their duties.

various types of sugar

Cancer Research UK make clear that cancerous cells aren’t just dependent on sugar for their growth, as they rely on amino acids and fats also.

The new findings came after researchers looked into the differences between two major subtypes of non-small cell lung cancer – adenocarcinoma (ADC) and SqCC.

About one-quarter of all lung cancers are SqCC, which has been difficult to treat with targeted therapies.

The Men Most Likely To CHEAT: Here Are The 12 SIGNS That Could Mean a Partner Is Unfaithful

No-one can predict whether your partner is going to betray you by cheating.

But, thanks to research, we now know there are certain factors that predispose people to being unfaithful.

Some of these are within your partner’s control – like whether they have a history of infidelity.

Others aren’t – their parents had affairs, they’re good looking or they happen to work in finance (the most adulterous profession of all).

This list will make you paranoid if your partner ticks all the boxes but it still doesn’t mean they will definitely cheat. As with any relationship advice, trust your instincts as you answer each of the questions below.

man-caught-cheating

But if your partner does score highly, be aware they are more vulnerable to temptation than most.

Keep both your heart and your eyes open.

1. Were they with someone else when you met?

‘Mate poaching’ – stealing someone else’s partner – is incredibly common in the US (and UK).

Three separate studies set out to find out if luring someone away from another results in a healthy, long-term relationship with the person they left to be with.

The answer, in a nutshell, is no.

Poached partners tend to be in more dysfunctional relationships, make less reliable mates and are less satisfied and committed than people who were single and available when you met. They’re more likely to cheat and have more narcissistic traits.

2. How often are you having sex?

Most people assume if they’re still having lots of sex with their partner, it means they’re not getting it elsewhere. Wrong.

While low or no sex does make it more likely for your partner to cheat, men particularly often become hyperactive sexually when they start having an affair.

It’s change that you should be on the alert for: if your partner suddenly wants a lot more sex with you for no apparent reason, chances are their sex drive has been awakened by someone else.

3. Have they stopped watching porn?

A survey by Illicit Encounters, the website for married people looking for an affair, found half of the 1,400 men they polled stopped watching porn completely while they were having affairs.

Other research has found people who watch porn and masturbate are less likely to cheat than those who don’t.

4. Did either of their parents have an affair?

You would think that a child who’d witnessed a parent having an affair and being found out would make them less likely to cheat.

The reality is sometimes the opposite.

Watching the devastation affairs cause prompts our protective subconscious to ask: ‘Who would you rather be? The one who cheated or the one who’s devastated by it?’

It’s not a conscious choice but it does happen: the child grows into an adult who abhors cheating but finds themselves doing it. Parental affairs might be common but their effect is still long-reaching.

5. Have they cheated before?

The ‘once a cheat, always a cheat’ belief does have truth to it.

But the crucial question to ask if your partner has a history of cheating is why they did it.

A true serial cheater has no moral compass and will often see nothing wrong with being unfaithful.

Other people cheat in relationships they aren’t committed to or aren’t happy in, others have affairs in retribution for a partner who cheated.

Find out the circumstances behind why they did what they did. Then ask yourself: ‘Is our relationship different than the rest’ or ‘Are they in a very different place now than they were then’?

6. How good looking are they?

A Harvard University study (US) revealed a definite correlation between attractiveness and divorce, leading researchers to conclude that being good looking was ‘a relationship liability’.

A relationship with someone attractive is definitely more vulnerable to threats than one with someone who isn’t so appealing, especially if you’re going through a rough patch.

Interestingly, how good-looking your partner thinks they are is almost as important as how attractive they actually are. The more attractive we feel, the more likely we are to find infidelity appealing.

7. How much opportunity do they have to meet people and get away with cheating?

If your partner’s straight and works in a same sex office with little interaction with new people, they have low temptation and opportunity to play away.

The partner who works for a large company and has a job that involves constantly meeting new people has more temptation than others.

If they also travel for work, there are more opportunities to sleep with other people and not be found out.

8. How much daily contact do you have with your partner?

How many times a day do you check in on each other and how do you make that contact?

If you’re texting a few times throughout the day, with at least one or two phone calls as well, it’s harder for a partner to get away with cheating.

Having to explain why they’re out of contact when they usually are is difficult and the simple act of receiving a text or ignoring a call from you presses all their guilt buttons.

The better you know your partner’s routine and whereabouts, the less likely they are to think they could get away with cheating.

9. How close are you?

A disturbing fact is the majority of reputable studies have found the majority of people who commit adultery are happy in their lives and relationships.

A Rutgers University study found 56 per cent of men and 34 per cent of women who had affairs were happy with their partners.

So knowing your partner is happy doesn’t mean they won’t cheat but if you’re in a very close relationship, you’re much more likely to instinctively know something is wrong.

10. How well do you know their friends?

Eighty-five per cent of cheating is with a co-worker, with friends and neighbours not too far behind.

It’s also true people are less likely to have an affair with a work colleague if they’ve met their partners: it’s very easy to pretend someone’s single if you’ve never seen evidence to the contrary.

The more of your partner’s friends and colleagues you know, the more visible your relationship is to other people who may fancy them.

It’s also more likely you’ll pick up on any telling body language between the two of them or directed their way. If you’re well liked, friends will also step in to talk your partner out of any plans to misbehave if they’re tempted.

11. How much do they drink?

Studies show men who drink no more than the recommended weekly total are 82 per cent less likely to commit adultery than heavy drinkers.

Women are also far more likely to cheat when drunk – for all the obvious reasons.

Excessive drinking makes us lose judgment, relaxes inhibitions and creates the infamous ‘beer goggles’, making us fancy people we wouldn’t be interested in sober.

If your partner drinks heavily with his or her friends or workmates without you around, this is a flashing red light.

12. Does cheating fit with their moral code?

I’m not for a minute suggesting nice people don’t cheat – they do.

But if your partner gets upset when they see or hear about other friends cheating, it’s a good sign.

There might be circumstances when they’re tempted but it’s a lot less likely to happen if they find the concept of infidelity distasteful.

Did You Know? DRUG-TAKING And Binge-Drinking Teenagers Five Times Likely To Commit SUICIDE In Their 20s

Teenagers who frequently binge-drink are more likely to commit suicide in their 20s, alarming new research shows.

Those admitted to hospital with alcohol-related injuries face a five-fold increased risk of killing themselves, it suggests.

The findings also applied to those who required medical treatment from taking drugs, being involved in violence and self-harm.

Professor David Cottrell, from the University of Leeds, who was involved in the research, warned that the NHS must do more to help these teenagers.

He said: “Clinicians have not fully appreciated the risks facing children and young people who arrive in hospital emergency departments having suffered an adversity-related injury.

“It is well established that children who self-harm are at an increased risk of suicide. But the research points to that fact that the risk extends to a much broader group.

Group of young people making toast at party

“Children and young people who suffered injuries through drink or drugs or violence also faced an increased risk of suicide or premature death through alcohol and drug behaviours.”

Sarah Brennan, chief executive of Young Minds, said: “This groundbreaking research demonstrates some of the interconnections between self-harm, substance misuse and violent injury – and the tragic consequences that these experiences may have.

“It is essential that we don’t think of young people simply in terms of a list of ‘issues’, and that we understand how distress can be expressed in different ways at different times.”

For the study published in The Lancet, the researchers, who teamed up with University College London, looked at anonymous data on more than a million youngsters over 15 years.

All participants were aged between 10 and 19 and had been admitted to various A&E departments across the UK.

Those whose injuries were due to ‘adversity’ – the result of drug or alcohol abuse, violence of self-harm – were twice as likely to die within the next decade.

This was compared to people who were injured in bog-standard injuries.

Young people in this adversity group were also found to be five times more likely to kill themselves in the forthcoming 10 years.

The exact suicide risk was found to be 7.2 per 1,000 for boys. However, for girls it was much lower at 2.5 for the same amount.

In comparison, the rate was 1.2 and 0.4 respectively for those who weren’t in the adversity group, The Sun reports.

The findings reflect the widely known fact that men are almost four times more likely to commit suicide than women.

Two thirds of all recorded deaths were attributable to suicide, drug or alcohol abuse, or homicide, the study showed.
