Twitterati Roasts Tupac’s Statue
Tweeps are at it again and this time, Tupac’s statue in Georgia is the latest victim. A Twitter user shared a photo of the statue captioned, “New Tupac statute in Dallas, what’s your thoughts”. The statue sees the legendary rapper in a suit, something he was hardly ever seen with. It was later discovered that the statue had been there for close to five years. Here are some of the reactions;
Looks like this was the template photo but they failed terribly ….Whom ever did the statue……we need a refund. pic.twitter.com/V0COmInZqL

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives arrested the controversial blogger alongside his partner and taken to Gigiri police station.

Cyprian Nyakundi doesn’t come cheap, does he? 17.5M…naughty boy. These are young innovative youths trying to curb the unemployment crisis in the country. Leave them alone. #NyakundiSetup pic.twitter.com/HCSa5arqSw

The DCI shld also arrest the individual(s) who paid the BRIBE. It is a criminal offence to give/offer and to receive a bribe. Arresting and charging Cyprian Nyakundi but not the person who offered the bribe constitutes double standards and a miscarriage of justice #NyakundiSetup pic.twitter.com/2iNHyg6Y3h

The US observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday in what would have been his 91st birthday. The civil rights activist inspired many globally with his “I have a dream” speech in 1963. Luther King was assassinated in Memphis back in 1968 by a firearm.
Incredible & so powerful. Every single American needs to watch & internalize this.

Today we celebrate the life and legacy of one of America’s greatest heroes. Dr. King’s strength and heroism made our country stronger and more just. By sharing his dream, he awoke a nation. pic.twitter.com/3pYru5Ibko

Isabel Dos Santos On the Spot Over Luanda Leaks Documents
Isabel dos Santos, daughter of Angola’s former president is facing allegations of embezzlement. This, following a “Luanda Leaks” investigation into how she accrued her $2billion fortune. “Luanda Leaks” are based on over 715,000 files obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). Santos has since refuted the allegations, claiming it is part of a concerted campaign by her government to discredit her.
