Wilfried Zaha: Crystal Palace forward will stop taking the knee before matches

Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha says he will stop taking the knee before games. BBC Sport understands the 28-year-old will no longer follow the initiative adopted in the Premier League last season after the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement. On Thursday Zaha said players "should stand tall", reiterating his view that taking the knee is "degrading". "It's becoming something that we just do now," he added. Zaha continued: "It feels like we are isolating ourselves from these things that are not working anyway." Last week, Zaha questioned the purpose of taking a knee before the start of matches while speaking to the On The Judy podcast. He also said: "Why must I even wear Black Lives Matter on the back of my top to show you that we matter? This is all deg...

Nigerian court freezes Shell accounts ahead of Aiteo lawsuit

A federal court in Lagos has issued an injunction barring Royal Dutch Shell’s Nigerian subsidiares from withdrawing money at 20 local banks until it ringfences potential damages in a lawsuit brought against the oil major by Aiteo Eastern E&P.

Ghanaian musician Mensa Ansah more popularly known as the artist M3NSA has been busy during lockdown.

The album is like a mission statement that is who he is now. “This is who I am this who I s...

Too much propaganda on court ruling on Mahama’s application for interrogatories – Gabby

Private legal practitioner Gabby Otchere Darko has said that there is too much propaganda spin on the Supreme Court ruling denying the petitioner in the ongoing election petition hearing. There’s a lot of propaganda spin on the ruling of the Court denying the petitioner his application for interrogatories. “Some even say the Court said Tsatsu Tsikata would have the opportunity to put the questions to Jean Mensa in the witness box. That’s not true. Read for yourself.” The Supreme Court earlier dismissed an application filed by John Dramani Mahama asking it to review a decision to disallow him from asking the Electoral Commission some 12 questions. Lead Counsel for the petitioner, Tsatsu Tsikata argued that the interrogatories were relevant as, in his view, it would help the...
