Someone just bought his dog $9,584 worth of iPhones because they can, that's why


Wang Sicong, the son of Chinese real estate billionaire Wang Jianlin, posted a photo to his dog Coco's Weibo account on Friday of his Alaskan malamute with her new iPhone 7s — all eight of them.

The dog appears to have both the rose gold and black varieties of the new phone.

According to CNN, the post is accompanied by the caption, "I don't understand all the show-off posts on (social media). What's the point? Don't make me do it?"

In China, a 256 GB iPhone 7 costs 7,988 yuan, or about $1,198 USD, which means Wang could have spent as much as $9,584 on iPhones for his dog (although it's not clear from the photos which model he chose).

This isn't the first time Coco got some expensive tech accessories. Wang Sicong made headlines in 2015 when he gave Coco two pricey ose gold Apple Watches — one for each front paw — reportedly worth $12,000 each.

Known as "China's richest son," Wang's father is worth an estimated $28.8 billion and is the world's 20th richest billionaire. Wang Jianlin is the chairman of the Dalian Wanda Group — the largest real estate developer in China. (Business Insider)

Tanzania lifts CECAFA Women’s Championship

Tanzania have made history by winning the first Women's Cecafa Championship
Tanzania are the 2016 CECAFA Women’s Championship after halting Kenya’s fine run by beating them 2-1 in the final played at the FUFA Technical Grounds, Njeru, Uganda on Tuesday.

Vintage Kilimanjaro Queens’s striker Mwanahamisi Omari delivered the goodies to condemn firm favorites Harambee Starlets to their first loss of the competition and secure the maiden glory for Tanzania.

Starlets had shown signs of fatigue heading into the final huddle when they struggled to go past Ethiopia 3-2 in the semifinals on Sunday raising doubts about the title credentials; the queens of the mountain were however majestic in the round of four humiliating hosts Uganda 4-1.

Omari hit the back of the net in the 27th minute before grabbing a brace a minute to the first interval. Starlets threatened a comeback early in the second half when Christine Nafula pulled one back for the Coach David Ouma’s side in the 48th minute but Tanzania could not bulge any further thereafter.

Vintage Doreen Nabwire was introduced for goal scorer Nafula in the 64th minute as Ouma sought the equalizer; he would again bring on Ambogo for Corazone Aquino in the 72nd minute but nothing was yielding as the queens of Tanzania held on to the big win.

Tanzania become the second winner of the regional competition after Zanzibar’s triumph in the inaugural version in 1986.

Harambee Starlets will now turn attention to the Africa Women Cup Nations (AWCON) slated for Cameroon in November; the Kenyan ladies will be carrying the East Africa flag in the continental showpiece.

Tetemeko la ardhi Kagera: Anaandika Mzee Ramadhani King

Haya yanayotokea Kagera Je ingekuwa ni mkoa mwingine kama Kusini ama Kaskazi! Je taarifa za habari huwa ni kweli? Leo nimesikia kuwa waathirika wa tetemeko wamekwishagawiwa Mifuko ya saruji na mabati wakati tathmini ikiendelea! Kagera ninayoifahamu mimi kwa miongo saba haijawahi kupatwa njaa! Mara ya mwisho Kagera kupatwa dhoruba hilo ni 1945 hadi 1948 na hiyo ilitokana na vita kuu ya pili ya dunia mimi sijazaliwa bado. Njaa hiyo ilijulikana kwa jina la "ibambura" mabati!

Wakati huu wa tetemeko hili, Kagera hawana njaa bali kinga ya baridi kali usiku na hii mvua nyemelezi! Maneno yanayozagaa ya kubweteka ni kauli zinazoongeza maumivu chuki, sonono na mifadhaiko kutokana na maneno ya kuudhi na kukatisha tamaa. Wana saikolojia watafahamu nini haya hapa juu! Kama ninalala nje na mtu akaja na hema na akasaidia kwa nini nisite kupokea! Uhai wangu ni kipaumbele cha kwanza kuliko siasa!

Wakati huu kwa Bukoba ni baridi sana usiku na mvua kwelikweli! Kagera pia hawasubiri mifuko ya sementi na mabati bali wanalisubiri taifa liuonyeshe mkoa huruma yake kwa moja ya mikoa yake! Aliweza kujenga nyumba bila msaada wa mabati hawezi akabweteka akisubiri misaada! Je unapopewa hema umejengewa nyumba? Tuko nchini mwetu hivyo ni budi huduma ziendelee! Tulikuwa tukifanya kazi kabla ya tetemeko na tunafahamu kwamba maisha yanaendelea na hamna mashaka kama njaa ya 1945-1948 haikuwaua basi tetemeko limepita sukari na chumvi si kipaumbele cha wanakagera bali mahema yawe mengi! Hakika wanaopaswa kushukuriwa zaidi ni TANESCO Kagera kwa jinsi walivyolihimili na kujiweka tayari na tetemeko hili. Mungu awajalie kwani ungelitokea moto basi gharika ingelikuwa ni kubwa mno!
