Honeymoon is Over

OK, here’s the thing people, don’t, and I repeat DON’T, drive through a slum in Cape Town, it will only end in death. Anni Dewani was murdered after she and her millionaire hubby, Shrien Dewani, were hijacked by robbers as they drove in a taxi through slums in South Africa. The robbers forced the taxi driver from the vehicle and sped off with the two terrified British newlyweds in the back seat. Mr Dewani was later robbed and forced out of the vehicle but his wife of two weeks was taken by the gang. Her body was later found slumped on the back seat of the abandoned minibus in another slum. It is believed she was shot.

Don’t Fib in Brazil!

Two British law graduates sentenced to 16 months in Brazilian slumsBummer. The two British law graduates, who lied about a being robbed to scam insurance in Brazil, have been given their punishment. Oh dear and they won’t be happy. The judge has ordered Shanti Andrews and Rebecca Turner to work in Rio slums for either 1 hour every day for 16 months or 7 hours a day for 8 months (choose your poison!). No I am serious, 16 months or 8 months, in Rio slums! They will be lucky to get out of this alive! Some of these slums ‘favelas’ are so lawless not even police will dare venture into them!  Ooh and the two 23 year olds won’t be allowed to return to the UK until they have spent at least 8 months doing their community service.  Not surprising they have immediately appealed!

Psst Additional bummer…it is highly likely the two will be barred from entering the legal profession when they return home because of their criminal record.
