Phetole Selepe

A 48-year-old man claims to be Jesus and that he came back to save the world.

Phetole Selepe, from Dan village, South Africa, claims he is Jesus Christ and was sent by his ancestors to save the world.

Selepe has been living on the banks of the Letaba River which is located in the Eastern Limpopo Province of South Africa, since 2004, where he performed his rituals.

Although he was arrested more than eight times, the local municipality was unable to evict him. He seems to be “untouchable,” as he claims to be protected by a large water snake.

He thinks he can bring people back from the dead and that one day he will lead his people to Canaan and wash their sins. Selepe, who goes by many different identities, said he used one of his names, Molalatladi, to control the world. Continue reading

The Unveiling of Nokia 105

Nokia 105

Nokia has unveiled a simple £13 mobile phone that can last for 35 days on a single charge. It is aimed at emerging markets where electricity is rare, but could also be sold as a back-up phone.

Lanre Teriba Shot By Unidentified Gunmen

I want to start believing that owning a gun is now considered a household item in South Africa, going by the spate of shooting and killing.

Gospel singer, Lanre‘Atorise’Teriba was in South Africa on the 15th of this month to perform at a Valentine show tagged Praise Night Concert.

But things went another way after the show was over. He was attacked by unknown gunmen and was shot in the leg.
His phones, Ipad and Gold wrist watch were all taken from him.

He was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital. Another musician Dele Taiwo was present at the show but wasn’t attacked.

We wish him a quick recovery.
