S i m p s o n doesn’t turn himself in on murder charges, LA cops chase his Ford Bronco for 1½ hours, eventually gives up (seen live on TV) Man loses job, conjugal rights A 50-year-old man of Low Density area in Mansa, Zambia, has narrated before the local court how his wife of 13 years has been denying him conjugal rights after he lost his job. Davis Chikumbi wants to divorce his wife because she is allegedly fond of sleeping with other men. Appearing before senior local court magistrate Kingsfrey Mwila was Chikumbi, who sued Catherine Mutale for divorce. The two got married in 2005 and have two children together. Dowry was paid. Chikumbi said the two lived in harmony when he married his wife and that problems only started in 2010, when he lost his job. He said his wife, who is a nurse by profession, changed her attitude towards the marriage as soon as he was out of employment. Chikumbi narrated that his wife came home late from work and told him that she was attending to some patients at their homes. “My wife denies me conjugal rights as a form of punishment just because I do not work, “he said “There is a man that brings her home everyday and when I asked her, she told me that he was her patient,” Chikumbi narrated. He said his wife talks on the phone all night with her lover. Chikumbi said his wife’s behaviour is disheartening, especially that he assisted her to access her tertiary education when he was working. He said his wife punishes him for no reason to the extent of not allowing him to sleep with her as her husband. Chikumbi said his wife told him she had gone for a workshop for days when she was with her lover. He said his wife no longer respects or treats him like the man of the house. And Mutale said when her husband married her everything was okay and that problems started when he stopped work. She said her husband had a habit of drinking Kantobo and when he gets drunk, he insults her. Mutale said she provides for her husband and children and that she got him a Canter but he was using his income to buy beer. – Zambia Daily Mail.

Friday, June 16 2017 | NEW ERA IN OTHER NEWS 9 Before Donald Trump was president of the United States, it’s no secret he was a little bit of a womaniser. His wife, Melania Trump, has even admitted that the billionaire was on a date with another woman when he met her for the first time and didn’t hesitate to ask for her phone number, but he’s also approached other highprofile women and Salma Hayek recently revealed she was on his hit list, as he once chatted her up – but he went through her boyfriend first. Hayek was appearing on The Daily Show when host Trevor Noah asked: “Is it true that Donald Trump asked you on a date?” The 50-year-old actress explained how she was at an event with her boyfriend US President Donald Trump alma Hayek eveals Trump nce asked her out and rubbed her arms, because she was cold - and Trump was straight there putting his jacket over her. “I turned around and my boyfriend turned around - [Donald Trump was] so charming, so nice, he said hello he presented himself, super nice - he said ‘I’m sorry - your girlfriend - I’m sorry, she was cold.’” “Anyway, and then he kept talking to my boyfriend... and then he befriended my boyfriend and invited him to dinner afterwards, to go where he was going and we went - and the whole time he was talking to my boyfriend. “And then [Donald Trump] was like, ‘If you guys are in New York you can come to Atlantic City, you can stay in my hotel. Give me your numbers.’” Actress Salma Hayek But Trump seemingly had no intention of talking to Hayek’s boyfriend - it was the beautiful actress he wanted to see again. She said: “[He] never talked to my boyfriend again. Now he’s calling and he’s inviting me out and I said ‘What about my boyfriend? Am I crazy? Are you asking me out? You know I have a boyfriend.’” She revealed that Trump replied: “He’s not good enough for you. Not important - he’s not important, he’s not big enough for you. You have to go out with me.” – OKAHAO TOWN COUNCIL Hair to stay… If you are looking for the nicest bikinis and swimsuits to show off on the beach during holidays, perhaps you can consider the ‘sexy chest swimsuit’ by Beloved Shirts. The “Sexy Chest One Piece Swimsuit,” which sells for N2 on website Beloved Shirts, is modelled after the body of a man, complete with nipples, chest hair, back hair, and a haircovered belly button. Naturally, this looks a bit odd when a slender, perfectly waxed woman wears it. The swimming costume comes in all sizes - from XS to XXL - and different skin tones, so whatever your body type you can rock the hairy chest look. If a swimsuit isn’t hunky enough for you, then you can get a whole ‘sexy chest’ tracksuit to wear while you’re lounging around the house – or even just a sweatshirt.
