Angelina Jolie Lands in Los Angeles After Congo TripAngelina Jolie is a beauty in black while making her way through the terminal after landing at LAX Airport on Wednesday (March 27) in Los Angeles. The 37-year-old actress is back in the states after taking a short trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as the Gisozi Genocide Memorial in Rwanda, as part of her work as a UNHCR ambassador.“It’s often we speak about the dramas and the pain and horrors of the Congo, but it’s also a wonderful place with extraordinary people,” Angelina said in a new video released by The Guardian. “I think the big message is… this initiative started by the Foreign Secretary is an extraordinary thing, but what we’re saying and what we’re here to do is to try to scale it up and make this a worldwide focus.”


Kenya's Supreme Court ruled on Saturday Uhuru Kenyatta was elected president fairly, unanimously rejecting a challenge from defeated candidate Raila Odinga that the vote was marred by rigging and technical problems. The decision cleared the way for Kenya's richest man to take the top job in east Africa's biggest economy, but left foreign powers with the headache of dealing with a leader charged with crimes against humanity at The Hague. Kenya's outgoing president had called for calm ahead of the judgment which came five years after another ballot dispute triggered widespread bloodshed. "It is the decision of the court that the third and fourth respondents were validly elected," Chief Justice Willy Mutunga said in court, referring to Kenyatta and his running mate and deputy president William Ruto. He said the court had done its duty at a historical moment. "It is now for the Kenyan people, their leaders, civil society, the private sector and the media to discharge (their duty), to ensure that the unity, peace, sovereignty and prosperity of the nation is preserved," he added. After a week of hearings, the court had unanimously decided the March 4 vote was conducted in a free, fair and credible manner in line with the constitution, he said.

Are they or aren't they? This timeline tells all....
Chris and Rihanna

The biggest showbiz rumor in Kenya right now is that the President Elect Uhuru Kenyatta's (Read Team Uhuru) are already planning an inauguration bash and they intend to bring in “big” names to Nairobi for the event. Unconfirmed reports indicate, the team is working on having Chris Brown, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj perfrom in Nairobi on the D day. Kiss 100’S Adelle actually updated it on her facebook. Uhuru Kenyatta has lately been hanging out with some of Kenya’s celebrities such as Jaguar who tweeted that he was having dinner with the president elect.  This became evident when he let celebrities play key roles in his campaigns. Showbiz MC Big Ted has been conducting Uhurus biggest campaign meetings including during his acceptance at the Catholic University where he was the master of ceremony. Other entertainment bigwig such as Ringtone, Madtraxx, Bamboo, Chiwawa, Abbas, Jaguar and G Kon have composed songs in his praise and swore their allegiance to him, though some have come out to say it was purely business. Uhuru reportedly spent collosal amounts to have the above artists record and perform the songs  during his campaign.




CASTER Semenya is in love! Just weeks after rumours surfaced on social networks that middle-distance world champion and Olympiad Caster was pregnant she brushed off our enquiries with an adamant, “My private life has nothing to do with you.”

DRUM went searching for answers.

While the rumours that she’s pregnant are unlikely, DRUM can reveal that the 22-year-old athlete is “madly in love” with 27-year-old fellow athlete Violet Ledile Raseboya. Rumours of their relationship go as far back as 2008 when fellow athletes noticed the two had grown close.

DRUM can reveal that the lovebirds have been living together for two years and became “very serious” recently.

No fewer than four sources known to the couple say the lovebirds also “make life decisions together” and are set to wed as soon as time permits. “Caster is not dating a Bafana Bafana player, nor is she pregnant – that would be ridiculous. She’s with Violet and they’re lesbians,”  says our source.

Limpopo-born Caster hit the limelight after she was scandalously subjected to gender testing after winning the 800 metres at the 2009 World Championships. Back then she used to wear a gold ring on her left pinkie finger. These days it’s her left ring finger that sports a gold wedding band.
South African top athlete Caster Semenya is engaged to be married soon to her long time lover Raseboya. Semenya 22, is engaged to fellow athlete Violet Ledile Raseboya 27 and word on the street is that these two lovebirds have had something going on between them since 2008. According to Drum, Semenya is deeply and madly in love with Violet and the two have in fact been living together for the last two years and even making serious life decisions together. Sources further say that the couple seeks to wed as soon as time permits. This revelation negates the rumours that were previously flying around claiming that Semenya is dating a Bafana Bafana Player and  others saying she is pregnant.As a source revealed to Drum, "She's with Violet and they're lesbians." Semenya is a top athlete in South Africa but it wasn't until she was pulled off the track to undergo a drug and gender test that she captured the whole world's attention. There was speculation that she was a man and should not be allowed in the women races or that she was using steroids to boost her performance. She has since been allowed back on the racing tracks and even managed to secure a Silver medal for South Africa last year in the London 2012 Summer Olympics in the women's 800 metres race.


So this is how Vera Sidika is...looks fake and Photoshop..The photo has been doing rounds on social media but as you can see it is as fake as it looks. The socialite has made little buzz since making it on the next season of Big Brother.


Rajo Verma, 21, lives in a one-room shack with all five, sleeping with a different one each night on a rota. The housewife has no idea which one is the father of her toddler son. She said: “Initially it felt a bit awkward. But I don’t favour one over the other.” Husband Guddu, 21 - the first to make her his bride insisted: “We all have sex with her but I’m not jealous. We’re one big happy family.” Guddu and Rajo got married in an arranged Hindu marriage four years ago and he remains her only official spouse.But the custom in their village is she had to take as husbands his brothers Bajju, 32, Sant Ram, 28, Gopal, 26, and Dinesh - who married her last year when he turned 18. Eldest brother Bajju said: “I consider her my wife and sleep with her like my brothers.” Rajo cooks, cleans and looks after 18-month-old Jay while her hubbies go out to work in Dehradun, northern India. She said of the ancient tradition, called polyandry: “My mother was also married to three brothers so when I got wed I knew I had to accept all of them as my husbands. “I sleep with them in turn. We don’t have beds, just lots of blankets on the floor.  “I get a lot more attention and love than most wives.

Pop diva Jackie Chandiru suffered a major heart defect that causes death. We have sadly learnt that the Gold Digger singer has been undergoing several tests at Mengo Hospital and it is feared she has a big heart d...efect. And to make matters worse for our favorite singer, her lover city lawyer Caleb Alaka has left her and returned to his former wife Linda Namuli. Chandiru now stays alone in Ntinda. According to a medic at Mengo hospital where she has been undergoing several tests, it is feared she could be having a coronary artery disease. This can cause a heart attack. Heart attacks usually occur when a blood clot blocks the flow of blood through a coronary artery — a blood vessel that feeds blood to a part of the heart muscle. Interrupted blood flow to your heart can damage or destroy a part of the heart muscle. This could even lead a sudden cardiac arrest. Sudden cardiac arrest is the sudden, unexpected loss of heart function, breathing and consciousness. Sudden cardiac arrest usually results from an electrical disturbance in your heart that disrupts its pumping action and causes blood to stop flowing to the rest of your body. Sudden cardiac arrest almost always occurs in the context of other underlying heart problems, particularly coronary artery disease. Sudden cardiac arrest is a medical emergency. If not treated immediately, it is fatal, resulting in sudden cardiac death.See More

Has Elin Nordegren rebounded with a man even richer than her ex-husband Tiger Woods a? The New York Post's Page Six reports that the Swedish former model, 33, is seeing Chris Cline, a coal magnate worth $1.2 billion. Cline, 53, has a mansion in the posh Seminole Landing development in North Palm Beach, Fla., where Nordegren has been renovating a massive new home.  (The blonde stunner famously razed the $12 million property for a complete rebuild of the property, which is nearly complete.)

"Elin and Chris have been dating since the holidays," a source tells Page Six of the very quiet new couple. Married twice, Cline is a father of four, owns a luxury yacht called Mine Games, and apparently hosted a Mitt Romney fundraiser in his home last September.

Nordegren's famous ex-husband Woods, meanwhile, has been dating Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn for several months, and even dispatched his private jet to fetch the gold medalist in Austria following a serious injury.
Another sign of progress for Nordegren and Woods, 37, who split in 2010 after one of the most epic cheating scandals in recent memory? They reunited last month -- and were photographed together for the first time in years -- at a youth sporting event in Jupiter, Fla. with their kids Sam, 5, and Charlie, 4. The now-amicable exes chatted for half an hour and "appeared to enjoy each other's company," according to TMZ.

The hitmaker, who is a spokesman for water brand AQUAhydrate, admits his love of sweet drink Kool-Aid growing up led to a number of embarrassing night time spills.Rap mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has stunned fans by confessing he was a bed-wetter as a child. The hitmaker, who is a spokesman for water brand AQUAhydrate, admits his love of sweet drink Kool-Aid growing up led to a number of embarrassing night time spills.He tells U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, “One thing I want to say is, I grew up as a Kool-Aid kid. Never drank water. I used to pour a half a pound of sugar into the Kool-Aid. Besides it having me bouncing off the walls, I used to be a bed-wetter. OK, I guess I’m confessing that I used to be a bed-wetter.“I went on this quest to stop wetting the bed, and the first day that I had a sleepover and I didn’t wet the bed, it was, like, one of the greatest days of my life. It gave me the swagger that I have today, because I stopped wetting the bed.” And now he’s hoping to convince other kids with bed-wetting problems to stick to water in a bid to stave off embarrassment. He says, “There is something about sugar that makes you wet the bed. So, to all you boys and girls out there… I’m telling you to drink water, OK? It will stop you from wetting the bed, and you won’t be embarrassed in front of the girls at sleepovers.”
