Photos: African Toyboy Threatens to Go on Hunger Strike after Officers 'Seized' his 88 year old Wife

An African toyboy is furious after he took his 88-year-old British wife to a care home for respite - and social workers refused to hand her back.

Carer Ousman Jatta, 45, married pensioner Beryl in the Gambia 13 years ago but moved to the UK with her when she became ill in 2006. The devoted husband dropped her off at a care home in February for respite care while he took a well-deserved three-week break to his native Africa.

But when he went to pick her up he was told social services had intervened and ruled his dementia-suffering wife couldn't return home with him.

Devastated Ousman has now threatened to go on a hunger strike if Bristol City Council don't hand

Muslim Cleric Issues Fatwa that Wives MUST have Sex with Husbands even if on Camels

Perak Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria 
A Muslim cleric has issued a fatwa ordering a woman to agree to sex with her husband even if they are on the back of a camel, as he denounces the idea of marital rape as 'made up by European people'.

Perak Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria claims that, according to the Prophet Mohammed, a wife can only refuse her husband sex if she is menstruating, sick or just given birth. Her right to say no, he asserted, was lost the moment her father handed her to her new husband.

Zakaria told Malay Mail Online:
 'Even the Prophet says even when they're riding on the back of the camel, when the husband asks her, she must give. So there's no such thing as rape in marriage. This is made by European people, why should we follow?'   
Unsurprisingly, his religious edict and outrageous comments have horrified many in his home

My Wife Does Not Have Vaginal Opening. Man Tells Court

A Customary Court sitting in Ake, Abeokuta has dissolved a three-year-old marriage between Mr Femi Olayiwole and wife, Kemi, due to the absence of vagina, deceit and frequent fighting.

Olayiwole told the court that his wife deceived him to marry her knowing that she could not bear him a child.

He accused his wife, who had failed to appear in court after being summoned several times, of living a false life, frequent fighting and threatening his life, Vanguard reports.
“My wife had been deceiving me since we got married I have never seen her pass through menstruation. My wife does not have any vagina opening.

Anytime I ask her for sex, she would give an excuse to back up her refusal. Meanwhile, we have been praying to God to give us children.

My wife did not tell me anything about her condition before we got married, until February this year that she confessed to me that she had never experienced menstruation in her life.

I thought she was lying, so I went to see her parents who told me it was true, and that they thought their daughter explained to me before we got married,” Olayiwole told the court.
He pleaded with the court’s president to dissolve his three-year-old marriage that had nothing to show for both now and in future.

Missing $20B: Our Audit Report Not Reliable: Pricewaterhouse Auditors

The much anticipated report of the forensic audit of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, operations on the missing $20 billion oil money may not amount to much after all, with PricewaterhouseCoopers, the audit firm that conducted the probe, saying it cannot vouch for the integrity of its findings Premium Times reports.

In a startling introductory letter addressed to Nigeria’s Auditor General, the audit firm said findings in its 199-page report were limited to available information and did not constitute a review in accordance with generally accepted standards.

“The procedures we performed did not constitute an examination or a review in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards or attestation standards,” the firm said.

“Accordingly, we provide no opinion, attestation or other form of assurance with respect to our work or the information upon which our work was based,” it added.

The report and all accompanying deliverables, the company pointed out, were “solely for the Office of the Auditor-General for the Federation, for their internal use and benefit and not intended to, nor may they be relied upon, by any other third party.

Blog Reader With Postpartum Amnesia Needs Help. Pls Read

Dearest Laila, you have been a blessing to me. I am a house wife for now and your blog keeps me entertained when the baby allows me time. I don't know if the mothers in the house and doctors can help!! I've a three months old baby, I'm ashamed to admit that I may have postpartum amnesia, because of late I've been really bad with remembering things, even the things glaring right at me. Like forgetting to turn off the water after taking a bath or washing, forgetting important appointments, the days and dates and recently initiating an already discussed topic over and over again. I was a bit worried until I read it's 'baby brain'. 
Last week my sister who stays with her hubby in Norway sent me some money to give our mummy for upkeep and I forgot and all hell was let lose. I am losing my mind. The recommendation (lots of sleep) in the article I read seemed more difficult than passing a camel through the eyes of a needle. Please can the mothers and doctors in the house tell me how to handle this? I'm scared it may get out of hand. I don't want to forget my baby in the car one day. ‪#‎sobbing‬ 
If it's helpful, I am 29 years old.
