R Kelly has been released on bail

R Kelly has been released on bail. It was said to be a total pandemonium as he walked out of jail. The RnB star will have to pay off a 6-figure child support tab almost immediately if he wants to avoid getting locked up again.

Kelly’s $100k bond, 10% of his $1 million bail was finally posted Monday after he appeared in court and entered a not guilty to plea to all 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

As he walked out of jail, wearing his blue down coat, Kelly was swarmed by photogs and reporters.

There also seemed to be a number of protesters yelling at Kelly, calling him a pedophile and asking how he’d feel if someone urinated on his daughter, but they used more colorful language.

Nigeria’s economy slows in Q1 as oil sector shrinks

Published

on

 

Growth in Nigeria’s fragile economy slowed to 2.01% in the first quarter as the country’s dominant oil sector shrank, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Monday.

The annual pace dropped from the previous quarter’s 2.38%, when activity was likely to have been boosted by state spending in the run-up to February and March elections in which President Muhammadu Buhari won a second term.

Nigeria’s central bank has forecast growth of 3% for 2019.

The largely crude-dependent economy emerged from recession in 2017 and has been recovering in great part due to higher oil prices.

In the first quarter the non-oil sector grew 2.47% while the oil sector shrank 2.40%, according to the statistics office. Crude production rose slightly to 1.96 million barrels per day from 1.91 million in the previous quarter.

Growth in the first quarter of 2018 was 1.89%.

Cleaners find bodies of twin babies in Kenya River

Published

Kenya’s authorities say the bodies of two babies, thought to be twins, have been found during a clean-up of a river in the capital, Nairobi.

This is the eighth such discovery in recent months.

Officials believe the bodies are being dumped in the city’s rivers as a result of abortions, which are illegal in most cases in Kenya.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has called for an investigation into what he called a “worrying trend”.

Several workers were cleaning up the badly polluted Nairobi River that flows through Korogocho, one of the city’s biggest slums, when they made the grim discovery.

They found the babies’ bodies in a plastic bag. One was still breathing but could not be saved.

The babies were buried near where they were discovered after the police said the parents could not be identified, governor’s spokesperson Elkana Jacob told the BBC’s Focus on Africa programme.

Governor Sonko believes that hospitals and clinics are dumping the bodies after performing abortions.

He has given his officials a week to investigate the issue.

As well as eight babies, four dead adults have also been found during the exercise to clean up the city’s rivers.

Lady Gabriella Windsor and Prince Michael of Kent have walked down the aisle on Saturday, may 18th. Lady Gabriella is the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, while Prince Michael is Her Majesty The Queen’s cousin.

Lady Gabriella’s wedding dress was a bespoke design by Luisa Beccaria. It was made of lace, embroidered with flowers and embellishments. Its blush shade came from layers of tulle and organdie beneath the lace, which created the body of the gown. The skirts fanned out into a long train. Her veil was made from layers of white tulle, together with embroidered flowers.

The Bridesmaid and Pageboy outfits were also designed by Luisa Beccaria. Bridesmaids wore cream dresses with blush underlays and sashes, with flower rings in their hair to echo the bridal bouquet. Pageboys wore cream shirts and knickerbockers. Their shoes were by Papouelli.

Lady Gabriella wore a Russian Fringe style diamond tiara also worn by her grandmother, HRH Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, and her mother, HRH Princess Michael of Kent, on their wedding days.

Lady Gabriella’s bouquet featured a creamy ivory ‘Ella’ rose by David Austin, named for the bride, and myrtle, which has formed part of many Royal wedding bouquets in a tradition started by Queen Victoria. Other flowers incorporated included Juliet roses, Lily of the Valley and white and apricot sweet peas.

Mr Kingston’s Best Men were Mr Benjamin Crow, Mr Daniel Crow and Mr Jamie Campbell.

The Bridesmaids were Miss Isabella Windsor, Miss Maud Windsor, Miss Leonora Weisman, Miss Aurelia del Drago, Miss Eliza Goldsmith and Miss Emily Conolly.
