Vatican Launches Probe Into How Pope’s Instagram Account ‘Liked’ Picture Of Semi Nude Brazilian Model…

Published

on

The Vatican has opened an investigation after the Pope’s Instagram account was caught “liking” a raunchy picture of a Brazilian model posing in a sexy schoolgirl outfit, an official said on Friday.

Reports and screenshots last week showed that the account of Pope Francis, which has 7.4 million followers, had hit like on the sultry snap of glamour model Natalia Garibotto, 27.

“At least I’m going to heaven,” the model joked upon receiving the Pope’s unlikely blessing, which was removed by a member of his social media team a day later.

“As far as we know the ‘like’ did not come from the Holy See,” a papal spokesperson told the BBC.

He added that the holy father’s social media accounts are managed by a team of people, emphasizing that the horny double tap couldn’t have been executed by Francis himself. The Vatican has now turned to Instagram for answers.

They added that the Vatican and Instagram were trying to establish where the like had originated.

The Pope’s Instagram account – Franciscus – does not appear to have liked any other posts and does not follow any other accounts.

Burundi’s President Pierre Nkurunziza Dies Of Heart Attack….

Published

on

Burundi government statement on Twitter says outgoing President, Pierre Nkurunziza (55) has died at Karusi hospital after suffering heart attack.

In a statement posted on Twitter on Tuesday, the government announced “with great sorrow to Burundians and the international community” the passing of Nkurunziza, 55.

The outgoing president died at Karusi hospital after suffering a heart attack on June 8, the statement added.

In power since 2005, Nkurunziza was due to be replaced in August by political ally Evariste Ndayishimiye, who was declared earlier this month the winner of a May 20 presidential election.

WHO IS NKURUNZIZA:

  • Nkurunziza was born in 1963 in Burundi’s capital city of Bujumbura.
  • He was raised in the province of Ngozi in northern Burundi.
  • His father, Eustache Ngabisha, was a Catholic Hutu connected with the royal family. His mother was a Protestant Tutsi assistant nurse.
  • Ngabisha was enlisted to the ranks of the pro-independence UPRONA party and elected to the Parliament of Burundi in 1965, later becoming governor of two provinces before being killed in 1972 during the Burundian Genocide of 1972 when ethnic violence claimed the lives of between 80,000 and 210,000 Burundians.
  • Nkurunziza attended primary school in Ngozi and pursued secondary education at Athénée in Gitega.
  • He later attended the Institut d’Education Physique et des Sports (IEPS) at the University of Burundi in the late 1980s and graduated in 1990 after obtaining his degree in sports education.
  • Before the civil war broke out, he became a sports professor at Lycée de Muramvya in 1991 while still studying psychology and pedagogy. Nkurunziza became a teacher and assistant lecturer at the University of Burundi in 1992.
  • In 1995, he was threatened and joined the CNDD-FDD when hundreds of Hutu students were killed or forced to flee. After rising through the ranks, Nkurunziza was appointed deputy secretary-general of the CNDD-FDD in 1998.
  • In the late 1990s, he was condemned to death by court and trial in absentia. In 2001, he was elected chairman.
  • There was a split in the group in late 2001. He was reelected chairman in August 2004.
  • During the Burundian Civil War, Nkurunziza is said to have survived a near death experience.
  • He was wounded several times in the war and was given the nickname “Pita”.
  • Beginning in late 2003 and after the ceasefire agreement, he was appointed Minister for Good Governance in the transitional government of President Domitien Ndayizeye.
  • Following a series of CNDD-FDD victories in elections held during June and July 2005, Nkurunziza was nominated as the party’s presidential candidate.
  • He was elected president by members of parliament (acting as an electoral college) with a vote of 151 to 162 on 19 August 2005 and took office on 26 August 2005.
  • He was reelected in 2010 with more than 91% of the vote amidst an opposition boycott and sworn in for his second term on August 26, 2010.
  • In March 2014, Nkurunziza banned jogging, due to “fears it was being used as a cover for subversion.”
  • In April 2015 Nkurunziza announced that he would seek a third term in office. The opposition said that Nkurunziza’s bid to extend his term was in defiance of the constitution, as it bars the president from running for a third term.
  • On May 13, 2015, Burundi Army General Godefroid Niyombareh declared a coup via radio while Nkurunziza was abroad attending a summit in Tanzania with other African leaders. Niyombareh had been dismissed from his post as head of intelligence in February 2015.
  • However, the controversial presidential elections were held on 21 July 2015. The electoral commission under pressure announced on 24 July 2015 that Nkurunziza had won the election with 69.41% of the vote with low voter turnout, the participation rate under 30%.
  • In March 2018, Nkurunziza was named “eternal supreme guide” by the ruling party, CNDD-FDD, in the run-up to a constitutional referendum on 17 May that year. The referendum’s proposed constitutional changes would allow Nkurunziza to stay in office until 2034.
  • On 21 May the new constitution was approved, allowing Nkurunziza to extend his term limits starting in 2020.
  • On 7 June 2018, Nkurunziza announced that he will step down after the 2020 elections.
  • Nkurunziza was one of seven siblings. Two of his siblings were killed after civil war erupted in 1993, and three others died while fighting in the CNDD-FDD. Only one of his siblings, a sister, is alive today.
  • He married his wife in 1994 and is the father of two sons.
  • Nkurunziza described himself as a born again Christian, though his rule has involved severely restricting religious freedoms for evangelical Christians and other groups.
  • Nkurunziza enjoyed playing football and cycling. He began playing football at the age of five, and played in a team at secondary school and his university.
  • In September 2019, a UN committee concluded that President Pierre Nkurunziza was personally accountable for serious violations.

COVID19 MIRACLE CURE: What Is The Problem With Our Cure, Is It Because It Comes From Africa? No Country Or Organisation Will Stop Us – Madagascar President Blasts WHO….

Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina has blasted the World Health Organization (WHO) for discouraging people from using their homegrown remedy for Covid-19.

WHO has repeatedly warned that the Covid-Organics drink, which Madagascar’s Rajoelina has touted as a remedy against the deadly coronavirus, has not been clinically tested.

However, in an interview with FRANCE 24 and RFI, Rajoelina defended his promotion of a controversial homegrown remedy for Covid-19 despite an absence of clinical trials.

“What if this remedy had been discovered by a European country, instead of Madagascar? Would people doubt it so much? I don’t think so,” the president told FRANCE 24’s Marc Perelman and RFI’s Christophe Boisbouvier.

The drink is derived from artemisia – a plant with proven anti-malarial properties – and other indigenous herbs.

“What is the problem with Covid-Organics, really? Could it be that this product comes from Africa? Could it be that it’s not OK for a country like Madagascar, which is the 63rd poorest country in the world… to have come up with (this formula) that can help save the world?” asked Rajoelina, who claims the infusion cures patients within ten days.

Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Niger and Tanzania have already taken delivery of consignments of Covid-Organics, which was launched last month.

“No one will stop us from moving forward – not a country, not an organisation,” Rajoelina said in response to the WHO’s concerns.

He said the proof of the tonic’s efficacy was in the “healing” of “our patients”, calling it a “preventive and curative remedy”.

According to a tally by Johns Hopkins University, Madagascar has officially reported 186 coronavirus infections and 101 recoveries to date, with no deaths.

“The patients who have healed have taken no other product than Covid-Organics,” the president said.

Reminding viewers that Madagascar has a long history of traditional medicine, Rajoelina added that many pharmaceutical drugs authorised in the West have turned out to be harmful, such as the Mediator weight loss drug in France.
