REVEALED: The Real Truth About "Mike Tyson Changing To Female" Story.


Several online newspapers in Africa have published a spoof story about former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson having a sex change.
The article first appeared on the UK satirical website, NewsBiscuit, at the end of November.
It was then published by Zimbabwe’s Standard on Sunday and picked up by the SpyGhana news website on Tuesday.
NewsBiscuit said their site kept crashing on Wednesday because of increased hits from Africa.
“We’ve had half as many visitors from Africa in the last few days as we’d expect generally in a whole month,” comic writer John O’Farrell from NewsBiscuit told the BBC.
He said the story had been viewed more than 50,000 times in the last few days, about 20 times more than is usual.
The spoof article said that the boxer would now be known as Michelle and was feeling fine after undergoing a 16-hour operation.
Versions of the story have appeared in the sport sections of the Standard and SpyGhana.
An online search also shows that the Zambian news website Zambia Watchdog carried the story on Monday, with the headline “Mike Tyson sex change operation ‘a complete success’, say surgeons”, but the link now says the page cannot be displayed.
Mr O’Farrell says the story was initially posted on NewsBiscuit’s writers’ board – the website team then put a photo on it and added it to their front page on 30 November.
It is not the first time a NewsBiscuit article has been taken seriously in Africa, he says.
In 2007, a story about Ghana’s former President, John Kufuor, failing to notice the flags lining his route to Buckingham Palace during a visit to the UK caused outrage in the Ghanaian press, he said.
Last month, the online version of the Chinese Communist Party’s official newspaper also appeared to fall for a spoof story by the US satirical website, The Onion.
The People’s Daily ran a 55-page photo spread of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after he was declared The Onion’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.

A Must Read: A Very Touching Story That Happened In Uganda.

                                    A Very Touching Story That Happened In Uganda, Must Read for Everyone
My name is Harriet Namayengo, I’m 40 years old and i come from Lugazi, Uganda. I’m a married lady but with no child. I’ve written this letter to you to share with you my pain that I’ve always lived with. It’s pain of childlessness that was inflicted upon me by my heartless co-wife.
It all happened 12 years ago. I had just completed my Nursing course and i was working in one of the missionary hospitals in Uganda. While still at school, i fell in love with James, a medical officer in Eastern Uganda. James was such a nice man that he always visited me at school and showered me with so many presents.
This honestly convinced me that he was single as he had told me. While in my last year at the Nursing school, i got pregnant and so James arranged for our wedding, I had already been assured a job at the hospital, he decided to put me in his house in Kampala. The shock of my life however came shortly after i gave birth to my baby gal. It was then that James disclosed to me that he was so excited because i had finally given him a baby gal since he had 5 sons. I was surprised and when i told him to repeat what he had said; he apologized and said it was a mistake.
I could see it in his eyes that he was hiding something from me so i probed him further. This is when he told me that he was actually married and had a wife with 5 sons. I was disappointed but confused since i loved James so much.
He organized a meeting in which he introduced to me his first wife. At first my co-wife pretended to be so nice, which shocked me. My co-wife began frequenting my home claiming that she wanted to see James. This was so frustrating because  James hada time table for both of us.
Her intentions however cruelly manifested when on coming back one day, i found my baby missing. I called my maid and asked her where the baby was, she told me she had left her at home (my home) with Mama Davis (my co-wife). My blood soon ran cold when i landed on a note from my co-wife that instructed me to check in the kitchen for my surprise ‘GIFT’. My intuition told me there was a problem and indeed i was right. On reaching the kitchen, i smelt a burning meat. There was a big sauce pan on the cooker and upon opening it, i saw my baby boiling.
This surely was the scariest sight I’ve been subjected to in my whole life. Ever since that day, I’ve never seen my co-wife again though i heard that she had ran mad and was roaming on the streets of Narobi, Kenya. I’m haunted by the image of my daughter. I now decided never to fall in love again.

Christian Lady Stabbed To Death 13 Times By Her Muslim Ex-Boyfriend Over Argument About Converting Their Child To Isam

Shola Adebiyi(Left) and Late  Esther Arogundade(Right)

A Muslim man was jailed for life today for stabbing his devout Christian ex-girlfriend 13 times after they split following bitter rows about him wanting their young daughter to convert to Islam.

Esther Arogundade, 32, was attacked by kitchen porter Shola Adebiyi in her own home after she began a relationship with another man.

Adebiyi also drank oven cleaner in an attempt to kill himself and phoned Esther's new lover to say he would never see her again before confessing to the killing to a friend.

Police broke into the mother-of-two's home in Salford, Greater Manchester, and found KFC worker Esther lying dead on the kitchen floor with multiple stab wounds to her back and front.

Jailed: Shola Adebiyi was given a life sentence at Manchester Crown Court for killing Esther Arogundade.

Adebiyi was jailed at Manchester Crown Court for a minimum of 20-and-a-half years after admitting killing her.

The court heard how Esther began dating Adebiyi in 2007 and that they later had a daughter now aged two but split up last year after a series of rows.

Rob Hall prosecuting said: 'These arguments were ignited by differences of opinion over the religion of their daughter - the defendant wanted her to convert from Christian to Islam, but Esther was a church goer.

'There were arguments about expenses, bills and childcare.'

Last March Esther, who also had a nine-year-old daughter living in Nigeria from a previous relationship began a friendship with another man named in court as Mr Alabi.

While visiting family in Africa Mr Alabi received a sinister phone call from  Adebiyi, claiming he would be killed if he returned to the UK.

Mr Alabi told Esther about the call and she spoke to Adebiyi but he initially denied it.

Mr Hall added: 'Mr Alabi returned to the UK and the relationship took the next step and it turned into a sexual relationship.

'They spent a great deal of time talking and texting on their mobile phones - it may well be that it came to the attention of the defendant.'

On June 26, Adebiyi cleared out his locker at work at a conference centre in Manchester then left armed with a large kitchen knife and waited for Esther and their daughter to come home.

Throughout that evening there were phone calls between Mr Alabi and Esther and also a child minder who was booked for the next day.

Investigation: Police outside Esther Arogundade's Salford home where she was murdered in June last year

But the following morning Adebiyi was said to have made 'frantic arrangements' to get child care  for his daughter and handed her over at 9.50am along with her birth certificate and left in her push chair.

He then called Mr Alabi, who asked about the whereabouts and welfare of Esther only to be told he would never see her again. He then called a friend and confessed he had killed Esther, claiming it had happened during a fight.

The friend went to the house and saw Adebiyi come out wearing a blood-stained t-shirt and holding a large black-handled knife.

He saw him throw the knife into nearby bushes. In mitigation defence counsel Michael Lavery said his client had made a 'very genuine' attempt to take his own life by drinking oven cleaner.'

He added: 'He took the knife to kill himself and his partner. He's lost his daughter as well as a consequence of his own actions. It is tragic for the victim of this murder and a tragedy for the daughter and for the father too. It is his own fault, I know, but that is not going to make it easier for her.'

Passing sentence Judge Andrew Gilbart QC told Adebiyi it was not clear exactly when he had killed Esther.

He added: 'Your relationship had come to an end with frequent disagreements and rows between the two of you. She formed a relationship with another man. You resented it, and tried to warn  him off with threats. She let you know that she no longer wanted to be with you and wanted to pursue a relationship with another man.'

'You were most upset at that prospect. She sought friendship elsewhere, including in an affair with another man. You were understandably upset but let me be clear about this. Many men and women have to endure the discovery that the husband, wife or partner is no longer content with the relationship they have.'

Life sentence: Adebiyi was jailed at Manchester Crown Court  today

'Many are jealous or unhappy. But what the law cannot and will not permit is the use of violence, which is what you used.

'I am prepared to accept that  you were very upset - and indeed distraught - at what was happening to your relationship. When you acted as you did you were under considerable emotional  strain.'

After the case Senior Investigator Andrew Tattersall of Greater Manchester Police said: 'The biggest tragedy here is that a young girl has now been deprived of both her parents.

'Her mother was taken from her in a vengeful, violent attack and no sentence today can bring her back.'
