US election: Trump calls Hillary Clinton a 'bigot'

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has accused Democratic rival Hillary Clinton of being a "bigot" in his latest appeal to minority voters. 
Speaking at a Mississippi rally, he said his opponent "sees people of colour only as votes not as human beings worthy of a better future".
Mr Trump added that Mrs Clinton and the Democratic party had taken advantage of the African-American community.
Mrs Clinton fired back, saying "he is taking a hate movement mainstream".
The Democratic presidential nominee called out Mr Trump for questioning the citizenship of President Barack Obama and for failing to disavow former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, adding that he was "peddling bigotry and prejudice and paranoia".

Mr Trump took aim at Mrs Clinton during a campaign stop in Jackson, Mississippi, on Wednesday, where he was joined by Britain's outgoing UKIP leader Nigel Farage. 
Mr Farage, who is viewed as a major force behind the UK's exi…

The multiple award-winning Ghanaian gospel singer and songwriter, speaking in interview

I realised the music gift at an early stage of my life, somewhere around thirteen, fifteen years but how it was going to happen I didn’t know. It was a dream I realised.

He further indicated: “I just had to trust him [God]. Growing up, my whole life has been a testimony and I have seen God do too much to doubt him. My life actually depends on the grace of God. I was sick when I was young and it took the grace of God to be healed so my whole life depended on him.

We’re happy Obinim flogged us - Teenagers

The teenagers who were flogged during a church service by Bishop Daniel Obinim for engaging in pre-marital sex have expressed gratitude to the controversial pastor for the punishment that was meted out to them.

The teenagers, Eliasu Zakari,16, and Justina Nhyiraba Gyasiwaa, 14, in an interview with OBTV expressed remorse for the conduct that led to the punishment.

"We admit that what we did was wrong and our father Obinim was right in disciplining us in church...when we heard Ghanaians condemning the action of Bishop, we were very hurt because we came to the realization that we did the wrong thing and he was right in correcting me. We were happy he corrected us by punishing us and we will not engage in such acts again. Comments by people condemning bishop will rather prevent him from catering for us,” Gyasiwaa stated.



Obinim is currently facing charges including, a charge of assault after the video of the flogging exercise went viral on social media. He has however been …

WhatsApp users to receive adverts

WhatsApp says it will begin sharing more data with Facebook and will start letting some companies send messages to users.
It is the first time the company has changed its privacy policy since the firm was bought by Facebook in 2014.
WhatsApp will now share users' phone numbers with the social network, which it will use to provide "more relevant" friend suggestions and advertisements.
One analyst said some people might feel "betrayed" by the move.

Data sharing
WhatsApp said sharing users' phone numbers with Facebook would help tackle spam and abuse, as well as offer people "better friend suggestions and more relevant ads".
Using the data, Facebook will be able to match people who have exchanged phone numbers, but have not added one another as "friends" on the social network.
WhatsApp will also share information about when people last used the service, but said it would not share the contents of messages, which are encrypted.
