Baaba Otabil, last of the three children of renowned man of God, Pastor Mensa otabil, says she wants her future husband to be like her father.
Commenting on the Bank of Ghana’s closure of her father’s Capital Bank and that of UT Bank, monitored by www.Ghanaweb.com, she described him as a man who “exudes grace”; believing that Jesus is about to do something greater in his life.
“He has exuded such grace that I have no doubt that Jesus is about to do something greater in his life”, she wrote on social media.
Miss Baaba, who recently graduated from the Liberty University in USA, praised the mental fortitude of her father, saying despite his troubles the first few words that come out his mouth makes her laugh.
She continued to say, she has learned so much from her dad and wishes her future husband to be just like her father.
“The peace that continues to surround him in the midst of chaos. He never stops seeking God and He never stops believing. I have learned so much from my father throughout my years on earth. I want my future husband to be like him”.
Not only her future husband but also, she wants her sons to “grow up and be like him” and her daughters picking up his character.
“I want my sons to grow up and be like him. I want my daughters to have his character.”
Meanwhile, commenting on the closure of his bank, Pastor Otabil told his congregation that people who have no right to even mention his name in their speech are now freely hurling insults at him.
“Oh yes, I’ve had some reality this week. You know when people who have no right to insult you, insult you; that is reality”.
Read Baaba Otabil’s full statement below:
This man right here though, He’s my dad and with everything that’s happened in the last couple of days, He has exuded such grace that I have no doubt that Jesus is about to do something greater in his life.
When I first heard what went on, I called him. I don’t really know what I was expecting but the first few words out his mouth made me laugh until tears started to sting at the corner of my eyes.
I mean, thick deep in his own burdens, He was comforting me and making sure that I was okay! I am just in awe of his strength.
The peace that continues to surround him in the midst of chaos. He never stops seeking God and He never stops believing. I have learned so much from my father through out my years on earth. I want my future husband to be like him.
I want my sons to grow up and be like him. I want my daughters to have his character. Dad, you are the best father a girl could ask for. I love you so so much. You have taught me what it means to be kind, honest, loving, and gracious. May God continue to surround you with his peace.
May Jesus continue to bless you with Grace. May the Holy Spirit continue to fill your heart with love. I know that there are bigger and better and greater things to come. #seriouslythebestfatherev
MUGABE’S WIFE FAILS TO SHOW UP IN COURT
Zimbabwean First Lady Grace Mugabe has so far failed to appear in a South African court over an assault case despite officials saying she would do.
South African police said in the late afternoon they did not know where Mrs Mugabe was.
A 20-year-old South African woman has accused Mrs Mugabe of hitting her on the head with an extension cord during a confrontation at a hotel.
She released an image of a face injury online. Mrs Mugabe has not commented.
Gabriella Engels accused Mrs Mugabe, 52, of hitting her after finding her with her two sons in a hotel room in Sandton, a plush suburb north of Johannesburg, the BBC’s Pumza Fihlani reports.
The attack is said to have happened on Sunday evening.
“The negotiations over the suspect handing herself over have not concluded and our investigations have not finalised,” police spokesman Vishnu Naidoo told AFP news agency.
Police Minister Fikile Mbalula earlier said Mrs Mugabe had handed herself over to police but was not under arrest, and would appear in court early on Tuesday afternoon local time.
Hours later Mr Naidoo clarified: “The minister learned later that it just didn’t materalise as it was supposed to.”
What does Engels say?
In a phone interview for South Africa’s News24 news site, she said she and a friend had been visiting the sons, Robert and Chatunga, at the Capital 20 West Hotel.
A bodyguard asked her and her friend to wait in a separate room, after which the assault occurred, she said.
“When Grace entered I had no idea who she was,” she told News24.
“She walked in with an extension cord and just started beating me with it. She flipped and just kept beating me with the plug. Over and over. I had no idea what was going on. I was surprised… I needed to crawl out of the room before I could run away.
“Her ten bodyguards just stood there watching, no-one did anything, no-one tried to help me.”
“There was blood everywhere,” she added. “Over my arms, in my hair, everywhere.”
What do the police say?
In a statement, they confirmed that on Monday an unnamed 20-year-old South African woman had registered a “case of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm”.
She was “allegedly assaulted by a prominent woman at a hotel in Sandton,” they said, without naming Mrs Mugabe.
Who is Grace Mugabe?
- Began affair with Robert Mugabe, 41 years her senior, while working as a typist in state house
- Mr Mugabe later said his first wife Sally, who was terminally ill at the time, knew and approved of the relationship
- Married Mr Mugabe, her second husband, in 1996 in an extravagant ceremony. They have three children
- Nicknamed “Gucci Grace” by her critics who accuse her of lavish spending
- Along with her husband, is subject to EU and US sanctions, including travel bans
- Praised by supporters for her charitable work and founding of an orphanage
- Received a PhD in September 2014, a month after being nominated to take over the leadership of the Zanu-PF women’s league
Why was she in South Africa?
She was due to be treated for an ankle injury, sustained during a road accident last month, according to Zimbabwean media.
It is not clear whether she was travelling on a diplomatic or a normal passport.
Mrs Mugabe is seen as a staunch defender of her husband, 93, and is the leader of the powerful women’s league of Zimbabwe’s governing Zanu-PF party.
Zimbabwean Information Minister Christopher Mushowe told the BBC he was unaware of the allegations against her.|
