Odd News, Man Sues Neighbour He Hired To Impregnate Wife, After 75 Times Attempts Failure
In Dar-es-Salaam, a Tanzanian Court must decide on a honorable intention, in a case where a man hired his neighbor, to get his wife pregnant.
It seems that Darius Makambako 30, with his wife Precious 28, really wanted to have a child, but a renowned doctor had told the couple that the husband was sterile. The couple was tired of being in a 6 year childless marriage.
So Makambako, a member of the Tanzanian Police Force (Traffic Department), after calming his wife’s protests, hired his neighbour Evans Mastano 32, a fellow police officer in the country’s commercial city, to impregnate his wife.
Since Evans was already married and the father of two beautiful daughters, plus looked very much like Darius to the boot, the plan seemed good.
Makambako paid Mastano 2,000,000 Tanzanian Shillings (equivalent to K10,000) for the job and for three evenings a week, for 10 consecutive months in 2016.
Evans tried desperately, a total 75 different times, to impregnate his friend’s wife Precious, but failed.
Reports say Precious, a nurse at a private clinic, had decided to get a three months’ vacation leave (March to June 2016), to dedicate her time to sleeping with her husband’s best friend and neighbour, in order to have her first child, but the man failed to impregnate her, despite the husband leaving them in bed the whole day, at most times.
When Precious failed to get pregnant for 10 months however, Makambako could not understand and insisted that Evans have a medical examination, which he did in January 2017.
The doctor’s pronouncement that Evans Mastano was also sterile, shocked everyone, except his wife, who was forced to confess that Evans was not the real father of her two children, but his cousin Edward!
“I was forced to secretly sleep with his first cousin for these two children, after realising that my husband could not impregnate me for two years.” Angela told the Dar-es-Salaam Today News.
Now Makamboko is suing Evans for breach of contract, in an effort to get his money back, but Evans refuses to give it back, because he says he did not guarantee conception, but only that he would give it an honest effort.

Importance Of Drinking Warm Water On An Empty Stomach In The Morning.
Starting your day with a cup of coffee or tea is quite common. While some may like to start the morning with a glass of chilled water to rehydrate yourself.
These may have become morning rituals, but it’s worth rethinking how you start your day because research shows that drinking warm water on an empty stomach has the best health benefits.
When you start drinking warm water first thing in the morning, your body will experience these benefits.
1. It Prevents premature aging.
Nobody wants to age prematurely, yet the presence of toxins in the body can hasten the aging process. When toxins build up in our bodies, we become more susceptible to illness and aging. Warm water can aid in the removal of toxins from the body. Furthermore, it can aid in the healing of skin cells, resulting in an increase in skin suppleness.
2. Helps weight loss.
Warm water is an effective natural cure for relieving the agony of menstrual cramps. It relieves menstruation pain by relaxing abdominal muscles. Warm water is also an effective treatment for all forms of cramps since it enhances capillary circulation and relaxes the body’s muscles.
3. It helps weight loss.
If you’re attempting to lose weight, you’ve probably heard that drinking a glass of warm water first thing in the morning will help. Yes, it is right. Warm water raises your body temperature, which causes your metabolic rate to rise. Increased metabolic activity allows the body to burn calories more efficiently throughout the day
4. It Improves digestion.
Drinking a glass of warm water first thing in the morning will stimulate your digestive system and help your body digest and remove foods more effectively. After a meal, drinking cold water can be detrimental. The oils and fats in the food you just ate solidify when exposed to cold water. As a result, fat deposits form and digestion becomes more difficult. Replace that glass of cold water with a glass of warm water
5. It Improves blood circulation.
When you drink a glass of warm water, accumulated deposits in the neurological system and fat deposits in the body are flushed out. This procedure promotes blood circulation by flushing out the toxins that are prevalent throughout the body. Warm water is also calming, as it loosens muscles, improves circulation, and improves blood flow.
6. It Aids constipation.
Constipation is an unpleasant and bothersome condition that many of you have encountered. When there is little or no bowel movement, this is a typical stomach ailment. A shortage of water in the body is frequently the cause. You can help improve your bowel movements and reduce the affects of constipation by starting your day with a glass of extremely warm water before eating anything.
