(Photos) Price Of Cheating: Woman pour hot water on husband's genitals for allegedly cheating on her
The incident occurred when a business person came to Chiwaya's house in Area 49 to collect cash for items Chiwaya's husband got some time back.
She handed herself to the police on Tuesday, March 29. Kanengo Police Deputy Public Relations Officer, Const. Salome Chibwana, confirmed the arrest of one, Juliet Chiwaya, from Malambima Village, TA Kaphuka Dedza.
Police said they have charged her with an offence of Act Intended to Cause Grievous Harm which attracts a maximum penalty of 7 years Imprisonment with Hard Labour (IHL).
Juliet was not home but met the business person on the way who told her that Mr. Chiwaya, Juliet's husband, was seeing another woman whom he bought the items for.
This angered Juliet who went straight home and boiled some water and, in her fury, splashed it over her husband's crotch.Chiwaya has been married to Julliet for 14 years.
And the publican standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. Luke 18:13
Read: Genesis 19:15-17
15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
Since the fall of man at the Garden of Eden, the only factor that has sustained man in this world is God’s mercy. When a man receives God’s mercy, it would appear as if he is a genius or his righteousness has bestowed upon him some divine benevolence. This is not true. The Bible says in Lamentations 3:22
“It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.”
In our memory verse for today, we read of the mercy which brought justification to the repentant publican. Because he begged for it, his day of mercy came unhindered. Jesus said in Luke 18:14
“I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abase, and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”
One striking revelation in Christ’s assertion is that we can only obtain mercy when we acknowledge our sins and repent of them as the publican did. According to Luke 18:14, what prevents some people from receiving mercy from God is failure to admit that they are sinners and that they need to turn from their wicked ways. It is amazing that some children of God are in the habit of living in the world of relativism where what is right or wrong depends on the justification they have for it. This is not the gospel. When they are caught stealing, they would rationalise it by putting the guilt on the fact that they are jobless. Some ladies claim that they took to prostitution because they were jobless and needed to take care of their aged parents!
“Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; if the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.”
It takes humility to acknowledge it if we do something wrong against God or against our neighbour. The Bible says in Proverbs 28:13:
“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”
Your appointed day of mercy comes when you humbly ask for it from the One who is rich in mercy (Ephesians 2:4). I appeal to someone using this devotional; if you have not repented of your sins through Jesus Christ, bring forth the day of God’s mercy into your life by calling on the God of mercy today for forgiveness. Or, if you are a child of God, but seem to be void of His mercy, call on Him like a child will cry to his loving father for mercy. Today is the day of the Lord’s mercy for you and your loved ones in Jesus’ name.
Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me and give me testimonies.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 8:19-10:16 and Proverbs 4:10-19
GOOD MORNING AND HAPPY SUNDAY.
"I almost died the day I signed to retrench people in my company. " - Eric Umeofia, President/CEO Erisco Foods ltd
President/ Chief Executive Officer of Erisco Foods ltd, Chief Eric Umeofia, has revealed that he almost died the day he signed to retrench people in his company because of lagging sales. This President of Erisco Foods was speaking at a forum in Lagos, Nigeria recently on the plight of local producers of tomato paste was has become worrisome due to the activities of the importers of substandard and cheap tomato paste.
A recent undercover survey has revealed that Nigeria’s porous borders and the poor capacity of Nigerian consumers to differentiate between quality and substandard tomatoes paste products are the biggest factors challenging the success of Nigeria’s indigenous tomato paste industry.
A recent visit to the border town of Seme and Cotonou in Benin republic revealed that there are huge warehouses heaped with imported tomatoes brands like Super Mum, Leya, Toma, Ginu, Bonjour, Fam Stew and many others. All the 12 warehouses visited eagerly offered to deliver in Nigeria any quantity of any brand chosen within two days if seventy percent down payment is made. A top distributor in Cotonou, Fedinand Ababio showed us packed consignments he claimed would be delivered to Nigeria that night.
With Nigeria’s economy dominated by substandard and cheap tomato paste smuggled across the borders, tested local brands like vitali, Ric-Giko and Sonia are left to fight for the life of their local firms.
Another survey has equally revealed that the yardstick used by most consumers to pick their preferred tomato brand is the level of “thickness” and “redness” of the paste. In a chat with 22 housewives and caterers in three different areas of Lagos, all those who had preferred brands used this erroneous yardstick in making their choice.
Recent findings revealed by National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) shows there is need for massive consumer education in the area of knowing a tomato paste brand that is healthy to avoid the present trend of self-poisoning that is going on in the country.
NAFDAC officials recently visited 27 main markets and four major supermarkets around Lagos and picked 330 samples of tomato pastes for laboratory analysis. The results for 314 were later released. Out of 314 released, 286 of these tomato pastes originating from China, representing 91.1 percent, were found unsatisfactory in terms of tomato content. Only 28 returned satisfactory, even though both satisfactory and unsatisfactory tomato pastes had the same red colour.
The red colour in most of the tomato pastes imported into Nigeria indicates an addition of colorant, which is prohibited, dangerous to health and shows that Chinese companies are merely adding colour, rather than the raw material called concentrates, into tomato pastes imported into Nigeria. These colouring stick to veins, arteries and vital organs and accumulate to cause cancer, hypertension and other diseases.
Another revelation is that the majority of the imported tomato pastes in the country do not contain lycopene, thereby exposing millions of Nigerians to cancer and other deadly diseases.
Lycopene, is a free radical-fighting antioxidants. Free radicals are damaging molecules that float around in the body disrupting cells and promoting disease. Antioxidants, such as lycopene, destroy free radicals so they can't attach to your cells and wreak havoc on the immune system.
The deception is completed by reducing the content of tomato concentrates and filling up the space with starch to boost thickness.
Nigerian consumers, effectively deceived by these con importers, cannot sustain genuine local producers like, Chief Eric Umeofia, President/ Chief Executive Officer of Erisco Foods ltd. Erisco has a 450,000 metric tonnes per annum capacity plant in Lagos, equipped to steer a tomato paste revolution in the country and end the annual wastage of over 75 percent of fresh tomatoes across Nigeria. The company has promised to create thousands of jobs for Nigerians as long as the Federal Government supports and protects her $150 million plant.
Disturbingly, activities of nefarious tomato paste importers, supported by an ignorant consuming public are almost bringing the local tomatoes industry to its knees.“We have huge stocks of finished products worth billions of naira in our warehouses which we are not selling due to dumping of these dangerous and substandard brands of tomato paste from China that are cheap and filled with starch and colours,” the president of Erisco Foods explains.
“We have the capacity to employ over nine thousand Nigerians in our Lagos factory alone if government protects tomato paste industry,” he further said.
Umeofia also revealed that with about "one thousand containers of tomato coming into Lagos port every week. Nigeria is losing $1billion to tomato paste importers every year."
The President of Erisco Foods spoke further on the plight local producers of tomato paste: "About two months ago, our tomato plant almost closed down. We couldn't sell our tomato because of the fake ones in the market. NAFDAC refused to do its work. Luckily, the federal government said no product that can be made in Nigeria will have foreign exchange allocation. That was when our business started to rise like Lazarus. Now, we have recalled all the staff we sent away and are employing more.
"By the time this product saturates the market, Nigerians will realise what we've done for them. It is about creating a standard, and letting everyone work based on that. That way, the economy will be better. We want to use our own tomato to develop our economy. We will create jobs. It touches my heart to see graduates applying for casual work here. The day I almost died was the day I signed to retrench people in this company because of lagging sales. "
