2 pastors arrested for raping minors in South Africa
The South African Police Service (SAPS) have arrested two Limpopo pastors in two separate incidents of rape involving minor girls in the Phalaborwa area.
Limpopo police spokesperson, Lt-Col Moatshe Ngoepe who confirmed the incidents on Sunday, said a 52-year-old (Name withheld) pastor in a village near Lulekani township was arrested for allegedly raping his 14-year-old half-sister, 
"It is alleged that the victim started living with the suspect and his wife since she was three years old following the death of her mother. 
According to him. the suspect, who is a pastor at a local church, allegedly started raping the victim when she was 11 years old up to date until the victim reported the matter to the police who immediately started tracing the suspect and  arrested him.
The man is expected to appear in the Lulekani Magistrate's Court today, on charges of rape and sexual assault.
While the second pastor, aged 46, was arrested by police in Namakgale outside Phalaborwa. He briefly appeared in the Namakgale Magistrate's Court and was remanded in custody with no bail until the October 26 for a bail application and for further police investigations, Ngoepe said.
"It is alleged that the suspect raped his 14-year-old stepdaughter at a village near Namakgale township; following the gruesome discovery by the victim's mother who immediately reported the ordeal to the police which led to this arrest."
The spokesman said preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect started raping the victim in February 2015. 
Also reacting to the alleged rape cases, Limpopo acting police commissioner Maj-Gen Bafana Linda condemned the act of criminality perpetrated against children in the strongest terms. She warned all perpetrators of such crimes to "repent immediately, not so, we are going to deal with them mercilessly and without compromise".

Government bans the term "pregnant women", asks people to use the term "pregnant people" to include transgender people



Government bans the term "pregnant women", asks people to use the term "pregnant people" to include transgender people
In a move to extend transgender rights, the Government has said that the term "pregnant woman" should not be used in a United Nations treaty as it excludes transgender people.
This statement is in the UK’s submission on amendments to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The treaty, to which Britain has been a signatory since 1976, upholds individuals’ rights.
It says a "pregnant woman" must be protected, including not being subject to the death penalty.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office opposes the term "pregnant woman" used in the treaty because it may "exclude transgender people who have given birth". The aim is to ensure that females who identify as male but have kept their female sex organs, and can conceive, are covered. 
But this latest move to extend transgender rights has angered some feminists who call it "making women unmentionable". 
Feminist writer Sarah Ditum said: "This isn’t inclusion. This is making women unmentionable. Having a female body and knowing what that means for reproduction doesn’t make you 'exclusionary'. Forcing us to decorously scrub out any reference to our sex on pain of being called bigots is an insult."
Two weeks ago the Office for National Statistics suggested making it voluntary for people to state their gender on the census because it "discriminates" against transpeople. The proposal provoked uproar with claims that it would make it impossible to plan services for women. Feminist Germaine Greer is one of those who was against it. She said it denied women’s "right to exist".

Neil from Young And The Restless tried to commit suicide just weeks before the anniversary of his son
Actor Kristoff St. John, who has starred as Neil Winters on Young and the Restless since 1991, has been placed in a mental hospital after he put a gun to his head and threatened to kill himself just weeks before the anniversary of his son's suicide.
He allegedly sent an ex-lover photos of himself holding a gun to his head and police got involved after the ex called them on Thursday evening to report the incident. Police allegedly confiscated two guns from St John and he has been hospitalized for a three-day psychiatric evaluation, sources tell TMZ. 
A representative for boxer Mia St John, the 51-year-old actor's ex-wife, told TMZ that she was not the ex to whom he sent the photos.

Kristoff's son with Mia, Julian St John, died by suicide on November 23, 2014. Julian was 24 years old. He had been diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 18, and he had also battled severe depression and drug addiction as a teenager. His mother, Mia, suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder
Sources close to Kristoff say the anniversary of his son Julian’s suicide is fast approaching and that had him very, very upset. In a May 2015 interview, shortly after losing his son, Kristoff broke down in tears and told ETOnline that losing a child the way he did was "every parent's nightmare".

I have vandalised over 57 cars in Lagos – Suspect (photos)



I have vandalised over 57 cars in Lagos ? Suspect
An oil bunkerer turned car vandal arrested on early Friday morning by the operatives of the Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos Police Command has confessed to participating in the vandalisation of over 57 cars in Lagos.
 
The suspect; Kunle Afolabi, 31, an ex – convict from Oye – Ekiti was arrested by the operatives around 4:00 a.m. on Friday in CMS after escaping from Broad Street, Lagos Island where he had gone to vandalise a Toyota Corrolla belonging to a Deacon of First Baptist Church, Broad Street, Lagos.
 
I have vandalised over 57 cars in Lagos ? Suspect
 
Found in his possession as at the time of arrest were two brainboxes of Toyota Corrolla and four winding buttons. The suspect confessed to have removed them from the Deacon’s vehicle and another Corrolla in the neighbourhood.
 
The suspect is his statement to investigators disclosed that he had vandalised up to 57 cars since he started stealing Toyota car parts.
 
‘I was introduced into the business of stealing vehicle parts by Yinka, a friend living in Cole Street, Oyingbo, Lagos in 2014. Together, we stole brainboxes of many cars, Toyota and Lexus. Our areas of operations were Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Ajah and Lagos Island. We operated thrice weekly.
 
Having mastered the act, I started my solo effort. I majored in brainboxes of Corrolla and Hilux only, maybe Toyota buses occasionally’, he stated. 
 
He explained further, ‘the focus on Toyota is because there is a ready buyer. Spare part sellers are ever ready to buy from you. I sell Corolla brainboxes for N40,000 and Hilux, around N70,000. I go for operations on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays. The areas I operate are Ikoyi, Lagos Island and Victoria Island.
 
Because I wanted to operate on the Island that night, I told my wife that I was going to work. She knows I am into oil bunkering around Takwa Bay. About a year ago, the police forced me to abandon oil bunkering for car parts theft.’
 
‘I surveyed the Broad Street around 9:00 p.m. on Thursday to see any vehicle I would remove its brainbox and winding buttons. I had learnt to be very cautious now because I have been imprisoned thrice for sundry offences bothering on stealing.
 
I was on the Island till 3:00 a.m. when I sneaked into Broad Street for operation on Friday. Before getting there, I had removed the brainbox of a Toyota Corrolla in the adjoining street.
 
I have removed the brainbox and all the winding buttons in the car when a guard spotted me. He raised the alarm which drew the attention of Rapid Response Squad officers around. I was chased and arrested,’ he explained.
 
He added ‘I sell the stolen items to a vehicle part dealer, Senior in Coconut area of Ajegunle. Most times, I take the parts to him in Layode Street, Ajegunle or meet him in his shop’.
 
Confirming the development, Police PRO, ASP Olarinde Famous Cole stated that investigations were still on to arrest more suspects.

'Dambazau lied, I didn’t reinstate Abdulrasheed Maina' - Head of Service speaks



Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, today said there was no truth in the reports that she approved the reinstatement of a former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, and his subsequent posting to the Ministry of Interior.

In a statement by her Assistant Director, Media Relations, Mohammed Manga, the HoS insisted that Maina’s reinstatement and posting did not emanate from her office.  “The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation wishes to inform the public that the reinstatement and posting of Alhaji Abdulrasheed Abdullahi Maina never emanated from the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation. Consequently, the purported reinstatement and posting by the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation is totally erroneous and misleading.”

Mr. Dambazau had in a statement by his Press Secretary, Ehisienmen Osaigbovo, denied responsibility for Maina’s recall to service. The statement explained that Mr. Maina “was posted few days ago to the Ministry of Interior by the Office of the Head of Service on an Acting capacity to fill a vacancy created following the retirement of the Director heading the Human Resources Department in the Ministry.”

The minister blamed Mr. Maina’s recall on the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation and the Federal Civil Service Commission.
