Meet a group of Magosha's who rob old men at an unused church - Pictures

A group of magoshas have allegedly been robbing old men, by luring them to an unused church yard on Groom Street in Verulam, KwaZulu Natal.

According to Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) spokesperson Prem Balram they have attended to several of these cases over the festive season,

Balram says several madalas were robbed of cash, watches and other valuables.

“Some of the victims were lured from Wick Street, in Verulam to the abandoned church yard - after they were promised sexual intercourse and oral sex,” Balram said.

After they arrive at the abandoned church, the men would then be approached by drug users, who wait in a temporary structure.

The victims would reportedly then be robbed at knife-point and assaulted.

“Other victims are approached by the two females and robbed. The woman recently forcefully removed R1000 in cash from a pensioner.

This after they accused him of failing to pay for sexual services,” Balram added.

The women were eventually arrested by Reaction officers on Tuesday, after a victim spotted them.

According to RUSA, the women were released as the victims had not opened criminal cases.

Pastor heavily beats up female congregant for coming to church drunk (watch video)

Pastor heavily beats up female congregant for coming to church drunk (watch video)

Church leader beats young woman for drinking alcohol: Video. The young woman who is being assaulted is seen in the church’s uniform and can be heard apologising repeatedly to the woman doing the beating as other church members cheer on.

The young woman can be heard apologising repeatedly to the church leader who is giving her a hiding. South Africans were enraged by a video of church leaders, allegedly from the Endumisweni Faith Mission in Mdantsane, beating a young woman with a water pipe at the church’s NU8 branch.

The woman beating the young woman has been identified by social media users as founder and leader of Endumisweni Gospel Group, Tsidi Spampool.

“Her name Tsidi Spampool, founder and leader of Endumisweni Gospel Group. She is notoriously known for doing this at Endumisweni Faith Mission-Nu8. The girl she is assaulting is not her daughter. Members of the church allegedly refer to her as ‘The Angel’, whatever she says, goes,” said @SpitchNzawumbi on Twitter.

In the video, she is heard talking about the young woman drinking alcohol and posting it on social media. Church leader Asivo Nosenga told the Dispatch that beating “unruly” children was part of the church’s disciplinary methods.

“Who are they trying to show that they are drinking while they are under a church that is [well] known [in the community]. We are trying to protect children from outside influences such as drugs; these are girls and they will get drunk and [can then] become rape victims,” they were quoted as saying.

The video angered South Africans, who took to social media to voice their opinions.

“Shouldn’t she be praying for them rather? Kanti what does religion say about this? The brutality of it. What has she learnt here exactly,” said one user, while another said: “This is so wrong and the church is in the mix of things. Mina if someone were to beat my child like that I’d go to church and punish her, open a case of assault period. we can’t deal with abuse whether is done by men or woman abuse isn’t right at all.”

Woman drives from Johannesburg to Durban to deliver lunch to a facebook friend she never met before - see why

Woman drives from Johannesburg to Durban to deliver lunch to a facebook friend she never met before - see why

SHE DROVE 600km TO DELIVER LUNCH -– AND LOVE – TO HER FACEBOOK FRIEND THAT SHE HAS NEVER EVEN MET BEFORE!

Felicity Moyo (24) from Observatory, Joburg told Daily Sun she decided to give her boyfriend, Ajax Bhengu (25) the surprise of his life.

Felicity said she was chatting to him on Wednesday last week when he told her he had been in an accident and he was hungry.

By then she had already made up her mind but she didn’t tell him her plans.

With clever questioning she worked out what his favourite food was and then, with two of her friends who came along for moral support, Felicity jumped into her car and drove from Joburg to KwaMashu in KZN for a first time meeting.

A video of Felicity delivering lunch and a gift circulated on social media recently.

And from the images it is clear that he was surprised and clearly delighted.

It is not clear whether he or she, or both of them, were hiding happy tears, but it is very clear that he was surprised!

Felicity explained they met on Facebook seven years ago but were both involved with other partners.

Their relationship officially began on 27 December when it became clear that they were both single. “When I laid eyes on him, I realised the trip was worth it,” she said.

“I found myself very comfortable around him and I loved the way he presented himself.”

Felicity told the People’s Paper she was initially planning on staying in Durban for a day but (surprise, surprise!) she stayed a few days longer.

Ajax told Daily Sun he never expected the visit.

“The guys are the ones who are expected to go the extra mile,” he said.

“The first time I saw her I couldn’t believe it was her. I started laughing and we started talking.”

Ajax said he has no doubt that Felicity showed her love by making the long drive.

Felicity told the People’s Paper that moving to Durban might be a possibility.

“First I extended my stay as long as could but then I had to get back to work. If things go well I might even move to Durban.”

Felicity said that she is happy to have found her soulmate.

“I’m looking forward to something long term,” she said.

“Who knows? We might even get married.”

Don’t be like Mugabe and even worse, Malema’s EFF warned President Mnangagwa’s government.

Don’t be like Mugabe and even worse, Malema’s EFF condemns Zimbabwe Army brutality

South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters party has warned President Mnangagwa’s government to handle protests with care and not to use disproportionate violence against unarmed protesting citizens.

Below is a statement released by EFF:

We extend our solidarity with the people of Zimbabwe who have taken to the streets to protest against increase in petrol prices. We call on the government of Zimbabwe to respond to these demonstrations with restraint. We particularly condemn the unleashing of the military on citizens.

Loading...
A democratic government knows too well that militaries are not entities used to respond to protesting, and defenseless citizens. To unleash military is to treat citizens as enemies of the state, who must be met with excessive violence, force and death, as militaries are death driven, only to be deployed to those who are armed and sworn enemies of the people. Militaries should never ever be used against protests and civil defiance demonstrations.

The progressive international community celebrated the fall of Mugabe, with the hope that the era of human rights abuse , associated with his reign in Zimbabwe , will come to an end. President Mnangagwa is therefore consistent with the Mugabe administration violation of citizens’ rights to protest and civil disobedience.

Tshokolo Kemme (25) from Theunissen, Free State born with both Punani and 4-5

Tshokolo Kemme (25) from Theunissen, Free State born with both Punani and 4-5 

According to reports 'Tshokolo Kemme' who is intersex and was born with both male and female private parts had been mocked by fellow home mates and other people while growing up which forced her to relocate from her hometown of Theunissen in Free State.

She now lives in Mangaung with her boyfriend, Tshepo Monyane (32), who understands her condition.

According to reports Tshokolo, who has her monthly periods, said she wanted to have an operation to remove the 4-5 and can be left with the punani.

“I was 10 when I saw I wasn’t like other kids. I had to move out of my kasi because people judged me.

Loading...
“I just want to live a normal life and believe I’m not the only one with two different private parts. People must stop calling us names. What I have is not a curse.”

Tshepo said they have been together for three years. “I was shocked at first, but have accepted her the way she is.”

Health spokesman Mondli Mvambi said Tshokolo has not asked for a sex change. “She should visit Pelonomi Poly Clinic for counselling and will be referred for surgery according to her needs.”

Intersex people are born with any of several variations in sex characteristics including gonads, sex hormones or genitals that, according to the UN Office for Human Rights, “do not fit the typical definitions for male or female bodies”.
