Vigogo wafanya ngono mlimani kutambika...Sex Mountain (2)

Indonesia Sex Mountain _ 1
The ancient ritual dates back to the 16th century and is a regular meeting of ritual believers participating in sexual acts, with the view that it brings good luck and fortune.

From married men, housewives, government officials and prostitutes, there’s a variety of people who participate.

And for a country and religion where sex out of wedlock is taboo, Mr Abboud says the idea of a mountain top sex ritual for Muslims in Indonesia seems very strange.

‘Back in the 16th century, a young Indonesian prince had an affair with his step mother,’ he said.

‘They ran away to the mountain and had sex and mid coitus they were caught, killed and buried.

‘There is a shrine there now and because they didn’t get to finish the act, others believe that if you do, fortune will come to you, most people like poor farmers who want to get ahead in life.’

He says he saw no Westerners there but people come from all over Indonesia to see if their luck would change.

‘It’s a Javanese ritual which is very different to the Muslim world, very different to everywhere else in Indonesia, the beliefs are a blend of Islamic, Hindi and Buddhism,’ he said.

So popular the ritual has now turned into a tourist attraction for locals with the government charging people to go there, with stalls and even buskers.

‘It’s a bit of a carnival.’ ‘It’s contradictory, the government knows adultery is happening yet they’re preaching something different and turning a blind eye,’ he said.

Ukistaajabu ya Musa....Sex Mountain (1)

Indonesia Sex Mountain _ 3

It’s one of the world’s most bizarre and best kept secrets of Indonesia. 

In the world’s largest Muslim majority country, thousands of Indonesian pilgrims travel to the Gunung Kemukus, otherwise known as ‘Sex Mountain’ in Central Java, to have sex with strangers as part of a religious ritual. 

Dateline video journalist, Patrick Abboud, got to uncover the incredible life on top of the mountain, given unusual access to what goes on. 

Mr Abboud says every 35 days you have to perform sex seven consecutive times for the ritual to work, UK Daily Mail reports.

‘It’s a pretty bizarre story. A few years ago I read a piece about it and looked into it, it took a while to get there,’ he said.

And what he found he described as ‘incredibly surprising’.

‘More shock of the sheer size of the place and thousands of people, up to 8,000 on a busy night,’ said Mr Abboud.

‘It was hard to make sense of it, after being there it took a few weeks to digest.’

Rais- Mungu akiamua hakuna wa kuzuia

“Sometimes, you would be looking for an office, you may not be able to get it for one reason or the other. Let us say somebody blocked you, so be it, let somebody block you.

“But if God wants something better for you, even after that blocking, you will get something else.

“I plead with all of us that we should not play the do-or-die, except I get it, let the party sink. We are taking inventory of all what is happening in all the states and I promise that we will try and use as many people as possible.

“There are challenges in some states. People may deliberately block you. You may even be the best candidate in that particular constituency, but let us move ahead.”

Rais- Huwa sipati na silazimishi kupata

President Jonathan has revealed the secret of his success in life , that's not forcing things to happen

He says he never gets the things he wants. He also begged politicians not to make politics a do or die affair.

Speaking while hosting members of the Presidential Declaration Committee ,he said
In my own life, the things I look for I hardly get.

 It’s what I don’t even think about that I get sometimes. I believe most of you will smile. But collectively, first and foremost, let us unite the party and work together for our collective victory.”

Let me use this unique opportunity to plead with all of us who are aspiring for electoral offices that the world does not begin and end with the office you are looking for.

'I'm a normal woman - I can get self-conscious. But I think that is just natural for women to feel that way,'
 In our society we’re often led to believe we have to look a certain way but I have learned to be proud of my curves and to embrace them.
It’s important to love who you are and realise that you’re beautiful, no matter what society says and the pressure they put on you to look a certain way.
