bbc_malikShocking details have emerged surrounding the sudden resignation of One Direction member, Zayn Malik.

Malik walked away from the band’s world tour last week citing ‘stress’ as the reason for his departure.

However, sources close to the band have leaked shocking information behind Malik’s departure, which is bound to leave One Direction fans heartbroken.

According to the sources, who spoke on agreement of anonymity, Malik learned he was 2 months pregnant on Monday 16 March, and has apparently been in turmoil since.

One particular source said, “We’re all just shocked. I mean, he wasn’t even showing, but he thought something was wrong when he started having strange cravings. Two weeks ago, he insisted on at least 1000 daffodils in his dressing room at one gig. By the end of the night he had eaten them all, leaving just the stalks behind.”

Malik reportedly did the test secretly in a public bathroom in Brazil, with the pregnancy stick confirming the result.

#newsbyrory attempted to contact Malik, the other four members of One Direction, as well its management team, but they have all remained mum – which is exactly what Malik is about to become.

It is not known at this stage who the the other parent of the child is, or whether or not Malik will keep it.

The sources close to the band say Malik is just planning to take it one craving at a time.

Malik was last spotted on a private flight to Morocco chewing relentlessly on a moonstone.

One Direction will continue its world tour as a four-piece outfit and record a fifth album later this year.

hippoA security guard is considering his options after being attacked and severely injured by a hippo at Tala Game Reserve near Cato Ridge on Thursday morning.

Spokesperson for ER24, Bradman Stretcher, said the guard was in a serious condition after his arm ws bitten by the hippo.

The 46 year old security guard, Winston Goodprice had his right arm severely injured when the hippo became angry and snapped at him.

Speaking from his hospital bed late on Friday night, Goodprice, who is recovering slowly, said he was disappointed with the hippo, and would be laying a complaint with consumer watchdog website, HelloPeter.com.

“The hippo refused to give me a single insurance quote, and when I double-clicked for the third time, that is when the hippo became angry and attacked me,” said Goodprice.

Goodprice’s wife Olive said she was eventually forced to approach a broker in order to insure their goods.

“It’s too late for Winston, but we need to raise awareness, so this does not happen again,” says Olive.

Wildlife expert Douglas Barkfur says hippos should not be expected to provide insurance quotes.

“Too much is expected of our hippos, and as a result, many of them feel despondent, and act accordingly. This needs to stop. The victims here are the hippos,” said Barkfur.

Tala Game Reserve refused to comment.

The complaint with Hellopeter.com is pending.

At the time of going to print the hippo was in call centre training, and could not be reached for comment.

mvokoSABC contributing editor, Vuyo Mvoko was embarrassed on camera in Johannesburg on Tuesday evening.

While preparing to go live, with the cameras rolling, three men – believed to be sent by a corner loan shop shark – enter the shot before a scuffle ensues.

The men unashamedly approach Mvoko while in full view of the camera.

Mvoko, as well as the three men, then disappear from the shot, before two return seconds later, with one holding up an unknown amount of money.

A voice is then heard saying’ “We’ve been mugged. We’ve been mugged. Yes.”

Early reports, however, indicate the three men were sent by a well known Johannesburg loan shop, Kneecap Bash and Carry, to retrieve a debt of R18,70.

A reliable source, who spoke to #newsbyrory on agreement of anonymity, said Mvoko had borrowed the cash earlier that day as he had forgotten his lunch box at home.

The only reporter on the scene was Mvoko.

At the time of writing, Mvoko could not be reached for comment.

jacob-zuma3President Jacob Zuma has once again lashed out at the late Jan Van Riebeeck.

This, after fires continue to plague and destroy Cape Town’s South Peninsula.

In a statement released on Thursday morning, Zuma blamed Van Riebeeck for bringing fire to Africa in the seventeenth century.

Van Riebeek arrived in the Cape on 6 April 1652.

Zuma is adamant the Dutch colonial administrator not only brought the concept of fire to the continent, but also threw a cigarette butt out of his ship, the Dromedaris.

Speaking pool side at Nkandla on Thursday, Zuma said, “I have set up a task team to investigate the matter, but we do believe a cigarette butt can remain dormant for hundreds of years, before re-igniting of its own accord. We believe this is what happened in Cape Town, and Van Riebeeck must pay.”

Zuma said he would also consider the banning of smoking on all boats near all mountains in the country.

Meanwhile, in an act of goodwill, Zuma has offered up his fire pool at Nkandla to assist with the dousing of the flames in the Cape, as fire-fighters finally manage to get the flames under control.

Zuma ordered his four wives to make the trek down to the Cape, each with a bucket of water taken from his Nkandla fire pool.

His wives left on foot on Friday morning, and are due to arrive in the Cape on 6 August 2017.

Van Riebeeck, however, could not be reached for comment.
