VIDEO: Finding my Father

Published

on

BY TENDAI MTANA

Born on the 23rd January 1977, in pursuit of life, my struggle in the absence of fatherhood for 21 years despite having a father triggered a journey in search of finding destiny. Faced with a struggle against condemnation and a dis-empowering education system all the way to University in 2000, my early teenage life set me on a journey in search of  mercy and grace from the only person that mattered; God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in 1998.

In my life’s journey I battled against the pride of tribe in my years of public service in Mvita, knowing that having come onto the earth from a strict and disciplinarian Kenyan father and a loving and comforting Zimbabwean mother I knew my journey was an African one. At one point, I summoned my courage and ran against the “Sultan of Mombasa” – the one and only Governor Hassa Ali Joho…and it was rough. Watch the video below:

After 7 years in active politics both in the United Kingdom and Kenya, my life in 2008 presented me with a struggle against financial debt and faithfulness in relationships. In this season all I lived on what my Pastor at Nyali Baptist fed me from 2002 – 2007, a promise from God that He would never leave me nor forsake me. With food from this storehouse, I began my journey of accomplishment in my ordination of leadership in 2009 and marriage to Terri Wanjiku in 2010, desiring this good thing for my entire generation.

In this place I have found and learnt the expression of fatherhood from a man who I have come to call father in the name of Chigbo Ndukwe. In this place I found my expression of family and know my African experience has been birthed. Having birthed our son Gabriel in 2011, this encounter has had me seek the forgiveness of Mtana Lewa, the man I called Baba from birth and in this season begun a journey of restoring a son to his father after 20 years of bitterness and anger.

My life’s struggle against the expression of the world’s identity on the one hand, and my image and likeness in God on the other hand, has set me firmly on this dedicated path of establishing the account of my ability and the response to this ability based on faith in the Word of God. This is the only way that my life can please God.

This is my story, the journey of our generations’ search to connect their dignity to destiny.

Minister caught on video masturbating says clip was for his wife

Published

on

South Africa’s embattled Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba, has resigned two weeks after a video of him masturbating was widely circulated online.

A statement from the presidency said Mr Gigaba – a senior member of the governing African Natuional Congress (ANC) – was “stepping aside for the sake of our country and the movement to which he belongs”.

Mr Gigaba had accused South Africa’s security services of hacking his phone and releasing the 13-second video which, he says, was for his wife.

The 47-year-old has courted controversy in recent years over allegations that he used his powerful roles in various ministerial portfolios to assist the controversial Gupta business family.

The Indian-born businessmen were widely linked to several corruption scandals under ex-President Jacob Zuma’s administration.

All parties, including Mr Gigaba, deny any wrongdoing.

Many questioned Mr Gigaba’s fitness to hold office, saying his reputation had been tarnished.

In recent weeks, the questions grew louder, first over a Constitutional Court ruling which upheld an earlier finding that he lied under oath while giving evidence about a government contract.

This was followed by a recommendation by the public protector that he be disciplined for ethical breaches.

Opposition parties had been pushing President Cyril Ramaphosa to sack him, and they have welcomed his resignation.
