Why I Want N3.5m Monthly Child Support From Femi Fani-Kayode — Ex-Wife

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode’s estranged wife, Precious Chikwendu, has accused him of beating her up at several occasions including when she was pregnant. Chikwendu, who’s demanding full custody of their four sons, made the allegations in an affidavit she deposed in support of an originating motion brought pursuant to Section 69 of the Child’s Rights Act, 2003. “From the early days of our relationship, the respondent (Fani-Kayode), has always maintained a lifestyle of utter disregard to my feelings. This was evident in the way and manner the respondent assaulted me while pregnant with our first son. The respondent (Fani-Kayode) kicked me severally on my stomach over a petty argument that ensued.

Start Deducting Tithe From Workers Salary - Archbishop Urges Government

The Archbishop of Kampala has urged the government of Uganda to begin deducting tithes from the salaries of workers.

Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga observed that many Christians of today are reluctant to pay their tithes.

According to him, the refusal of some people to regularly pay their tithes is taking a huge toll on the church.

He explained that many churches in Uganda are no longer able to undertake certain necessary projects because the tithes are not coming.

Speaking at a mass service, the Catholic Bishop, therefore, used the chance to appeal to the government.


He suggested that the government should start deducting tithes from the salaries of workers, just like taxes.

“Whenever we ask for tithe, everyone gives only what they have at that time. But the Bible says a tenth of whatever you earn belongs to the church,” Lwanga said.

“Give me your support as I front this proposal because it is good for us. Aren’t you tired of putting money in the baskets all the time?” he questioned his congregants.


He used Germany as a case study, saying the German government deducts 8-9 per cent church tax (Kirchensteuer) from annual earnings of workers who are registered as Catholics, Protestants or Jews.

“I was told Germans made agreements with their government to deduct monthly tithe from their salaries and forward it to the church and this money they use to build and renovate their churches,” the man of God added.
