A Muslim preacher who abused a Christian woman while preaching in the streets, has been found guilty. Religious clashes are fast becoming a thing of concern for the people who practice it, as one has to learn to be extra careful these days about utterances and actions geared towards religion. An unemployed Muslim preacher identified as Krissoni Henderson, was said to have accosted his victim Noor Alneaimi, in the middle of a Birmingham street, on July 4, and went ahead to insult and calling her derogatory names.
 Henderson with his wife 31-year-old Henderson reportedly shouted at Alneaimi whom he attacked over the skinny jeans she wore, asking her to take it off and threatening to blow up her house. Narrating her ordeal in court, Alneaimi said: ”He started calling females on the street prostitutes, predominantly white women, calling them sluts. One woman started crying and ran off. Then he started hurling abuse at me. He said: “Look at your tight jeans. You are a kafir”. I was dressed in Western clothes so I don’t think he thought I was a Muslim. He kept saying: “Satan, Satan, Satan” and it started drawing attention. I moved away because I was becoming frightened.” According to reports, Henderson had been allowed to walk away when police first accosted him at the scene of the incident, but was arrested in his home at Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham the next day.

 Henderson standing outside the court While he was being led away by the police, he said: ”Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! We’re not going to take this anymore. You have no Jesus, I’m not scared of you. You are trying to belittle me. Satanists. You disgusting beasts. Filthy beasts. You treat us like c**p in your country. You treat us like animals in your country. You treat black people like terrorist. You are the terrorists. The Queen is a terrorist.” Henderson was charged with causing intentional harassment, alarm or distress and using racially aggravated insulting words or behaviour. 
Muslim preacher found guilty of racial abuse Henderson was found guilty on all counts and while defending himself, he said the victim was probably trying to seduce him because he’s muscular and handsome. He said: ”I decided not to engage with her because it would look like I was causing trouble. She was shouting at me and my wife, so I shouted back. She was swearing and shouting. I just thought to myself, why the hostility? I have not done anything to you.”

This was said to have happened at Mwituria village, Laikipia county in Kenya. An in-law to the victim had reported at the Ngobit police station that her two sacks of beans had been stolen. This made a plain-clothed police officer to come down to the village to investigate the matter. But he was drunk.

During his supposed investigation, the officer saw a dry leaf of beans in Mary Njeri compound and accused her of being the culprit behind the stealing stolen sacks of beans. The angry residents noticing the officer was drunk tried to attack him and this was said to have angered oga officer after taking the woman to a police station where she was stripped naked and beaten together with her 13-year-old son. The officer also claimed his handcuffs which he dropped while drunk was stolen by the woman. ”He said that I had stolen the handcuffs from him and he started dragging me around as he beat me.
 He kept saying I was hiding the handcuffs under my dress so he removed my clothes and dragged me outside,” the woman is quoted by the Daily Nation.:

It is true that there is one thing we all dread in life, just the mere mention of that word send s goose pimples to most of us. Let me go straight to the point, i was with a friend yesterday when he took a glance at his phone, he exclaimed and said is this true? curious, i ask what? he said that Dangote, the number one man in Africa that is the business mugul has fallen in an Hospital in Germany.
I was perplexed and lacked what to say because the words seems to have vanished from my lips. We tried other sites for confirmation of that story but none was saying anything, until later, the said dead man announced that he was not dead and that he was hale and hearty.
 On reaching home i told my children how depressed i was when i received the news, the first thing my son asked was that ” how does that concern you when you dint even know him personally”? And it down on me, i’m relating this now to my self because a day will come when an announcement will come as. INNALILLAHI WA INNA’ILAIHI RAJIUN’. we have just lost a very dear friend, wife, mother and may be grand mother and so many other titles that might be used which will be appealing to the situation on ground all the sweet things will be said about me, but that will be just by the way’ i will be gone and gone for good, i believe some of you will feel exactly what i felt yesterday, others will say serves her right was she not like this or like that? as if we both dint know our exit point and our final destination.
Had the richest man in Africa truly fallen that yesterday, many  would have been saying different things cos as human beings we like to talk apparently about what does not concern us, his family would have been calculating how his acquired wealth will be shared, and same goes to all of us today, so never be a slave to money, take time out of your busy schedule and give your self a treat it is called self care.  Because if you don’t, the moment you are not there life still continue with or without you.May we all live a live worthy of emulation and live a good and lasting legacy when its our time to take a bow..

Minister of Sports and Youths Development, Solomon Dalung, turned 52 today and has shared a lengthy account of his life on Facebook.

The minister, who has come under heavy criticism for his in-activeness as Nigeria’s minister of sports, noted that life has not been easy with him, adding that his parents could only take him through secondary school.
He wrote, “Today marks another turning point in my life as I remember the day I arrived this planet called Earth. On this day a young woman had her first pilgrimage to the traditional labour room in Sabongida village in the then Resettlement Area now Langtang South Local Government Area in Plateau State.
“It took me nine years to study a five year law course due to unsolicited donation of four years from ASUU Strikes, from 1991-1999. I was full of joy and praises to God for realizing my ambition of been a graduate.“Proceeding to Nigerian Law School Bwari was another Miracle because how I raised the huge budget of registration requirements is left to be imagined, but I remembered receiving contributions from friends, associates and kind Hearted Nigerians.“At least, I made the Law School and graduated and was called to Nigerian Bar as the first person to be a Lawyer in my native Local Government Area.
“Being the only child of my mother, I lack the comfort of either juniors or senior siblings. Every decision is usually subjected to the armed forces ruling council of my mind. If it works fine but where it fails then I learn to live with it. This contributed much in my depending more on God than any other effort or man.
“The name Solomon Selcan Dalung means different things to different people. I am not admired by the elites because many detested my self-opinionated lifestyle and wonder what was my source of confidence. Many see me as controversial personality while to some I am a radical.
“There are many who hate my guts hence referred to me as a pompous personality. Some have even expressed it publicly that I am a wicked person and there are those who believed that I am a good and kind human being.
“Whichever way you look at it people are free to hold opinions about you but my request is that people should be honest enough to express same opinions when I finally bow out. Please do not come and lie on that day or sing hypocritical praises of me.
“Despite all odds God has been faithful to me in all trials. He had proved to me that He is God. In my mind every day I say thank you Lord. I would have venture into celebrating it this year as the society would expect but ironically the economic reality does not encourage it.
“Instead of organizing celebrations spending so much in the name of my birth, I am appealing to all those who love me to kindly show love to other people who are in need by assisting with anything your mind convinces you do.
“It could be food or foodstuff to anybody you know is in need that will be the greatest birthday gift. All those rushing for expensive and customized birthday cards are also advised to deploy the money into charity, I will appreciate more.
“For me I will prefer to die with my ideas because I had traveled with them all through these years. I will concentrate on promoting peace, justice, love and equity in our society.
“I will re-dedicate my life to preaching religious harmony among st Nigerians and also ensure that I serve my country selflessly having been given this opportunity.
“The secret of my life is forgiveness and it has been my source of strength. I always put everything behind me and move on with life. I stand with Nigerians during this period of hardship and pray to God to grant us the grace of overcoming it. I love you all and God bless Nigeria.”
