Meet the Tattooed Presidential Candidate of Czech Republic

Imagine your president is tattooed from head to toe. Sounds crazy? But believe it or not, Vladimir Franz a leading Czech presidential hopeful is tattooed from head to toe. Since the breakup of Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic has had two presidents, Vaclav Havel and Vaclav Klaus, and both were elected by Parliament. But both of those elections were plagued by charges of corruption, so the legislature handed over the vote to the general public.
Klaus, the incumbent, called the direct elections “a fatal mistake” because someone like Franz might succeed him. Klaus was at one time caught on camera 'stealing' the pen of Chilean president Sebastian Pinera.
It seems the people of Czech are now accustomed to intricacies of their presidents.


Dk. Slaa ahofia uhai wake

Vyanzo: Nipashe na Chadema Blog Katibu Mkuu wa Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (Chadema), Dk. Willibrod Slaa, amesema anaendelea kutishiwa kuuawa na vyombo vya usalama na kwamba njama zote zinazopangwa dhidi yake amezibaini.

Hata hivyo, Dk. Slaa amesema hataacha siasa kutokana na vitisho hivyo na yupo tayari kufa kwa ajili ya kutetea umma wa Watanzania katika kupata haki yao ikiwamo kunufaika na rasilimali zao ambazo zinanufaisha watu wachache.

Aliyasema hayo katika viwanja vya Railway, Manispaa ya Moshi jana na katika viwanja vya Kwasa Kwasa mjini Same wakati wa mikutano yake ya hadhara.

“Nimetishiwa kuuawa zaidi ya mara tatu na hadi sasa wahusika wanaendelea na mipango ambayo yote inavuja na kutufikia Chadema,” alisema na kuongeza: “Sitaacha siasa kwa vitisho vyao ndiyo kwanza nasonga mbele nimejitoa maisha yangu.”

Aliongeza kuwa bahati mbaya mipango inayopangwa imekuwa ikivuja kwa kuwa nyumba yao inavuja na hivyo wenye uchungu na nchi wamekuwa wakitoa taarifa hizo.
