Blind clairvoyant who allegedly predicted 9/11 and Brexit has made six terrifying prophecies for 2022

A blind clairvoyant who allegedly predicted 9/11 and Brexit, has made six terrifying prophecies for 2022. Some of the prophecies given by Baba Vanga, a Bulgarian mystic who lost her sight at the age of 12, include natural disasters, a water crisis and an alien invasion by the end of next year. Nicknamed the Nostradamus of the Balkans, her visions are said to be 85% correct and include the Chernobyl tragedy, the death of Princess Diana and the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

Travis Scott ‘partied at Dave and Busters with Drake’ after 8 people died in a stampede at his Astroworld Festival

Travis Scott reportedly went to a post-show party at a Houston sports bar hosted by Drake after eight people died in a stampede at his Astroworld Festival.

But a 'mass casualty event' had been declared by the fire department 30 minutes before he finished his set. Scott and Drake are being sued for 'inciting mayhem' at the concert which left more th...

Tragedy strikes as Ugandan water minister’s twins drown in pool

The twin sons of Uganda’s State Water Minister Ronald Kibuule have drowned in the family swimming pool. Both Kibuule and his wife, Fortunate, were away when the tragedy took place.
