As the president of a democratic country, suggesting the bulk of your electorate is lazy is not usually a good idea and doing so at an international business forum, even less so.

And that is what a lot of Nigerians thought about comments made by their president, Muhammadu Buhari, on a visit to London last week.

Speaking on a panel during the Commonwealth Business Forum, President Buhari said that “a lot of” Nigerian youths claim “they should sit and do nothing” but expect to get “housing, healthcare and education free”.

Unsurprisingly social media erupted and the hashtag #LazyNigerianYouths was born.

In a statement soon afterwards, the president defended his words. His media aide quite rightly pointed out that the president never used the word lazy. But that didn’t do much to quell the angry masses online.                                             Continue reading

Indian spiritual guru, 77, gets life in prison for raping 16-year-old girl

A 77-year old Indian spiritual Guru has been sentenced to life in prison for raping a teenage girl in 2013.

Asaram Bapu, who claims to have millions of followers worldwide, was sentenced after a court in the western Indian city of Jodhpur on Wednesday ruled that he had raped a 16-year old girl at one of his ashrams, where he instructed his disciples in meditation and yoga.

The trial was held amid fears of major rioting. Heavy security was in place for the verdict after nine prosecution witnesses were attacked and three died during protests over the course of his trial. Twenty-three died during disorder following the sentencing of another guru, Gurmeet Ram Rahim, for rape last year.     Continue reading

Pizza Hut served wrong pizza to young boy leaving him fighting for life

 

A toddler was left fighting for life after staff at Pizza Hut served him the wrong food despite repeated requests from his parents. Zayaan Hussain, two, suffers from a dairy allergy so his parents asked for vegan food, telling staff on four occasions that there should not be cross-contamination.

However, minutes after eating the food he ordered, dad Sayid Hussain, 33, said he started vomiting and struggling to breathe. Pizza Hut said that ‘human error’ was behind the incident at their branch in Blackpool, Lancashire. Sajid said: ‘Even when we received the pizza, I wouldn’t let him eat it before re-confirming that it was definitely dairy-free. They said it was, so he ate the pizza.                            Continue reading
