Herbert Mensah is still President and board chairman of the Ghana rugby Association….Ghana Olympic Committee

The general secretary of the Ghana olympics Committee Mohammed Sahnoon has described as flawed and unconstitutional the purported suspension of Herbert Mensah as president and board chairman of the Ghana Rugby Association. According to him only a special general meeting of the federation is clothed with such powers to cause the suspension of an elected member. A letter in circulation signed by an associate member of the Ghana rugby communicating the announcement of Mr. Mensah’s suspension without the full authorization of the board claims the president failed to respond to some issues raised against him. The general secretary in a correspondence to the player union of ghana Rugby said Herbert Mensah as President was duly elected as such under the Constitution and matters c...

Champions League final: Portugal could host final rather than Wembley

Portugal is a strong candidate to host the Champions League final after Uefa failed to receive the guarantees of exemptions it wants if it is to move the game to Wembley. Uefa, UK government officials and the Football Association met on Monday to discuss moving the game between Chelsea and Manchester City from Istanbul. Uefa has decided it will be moved after Turkey was put on England's red travel list meaning fans cannot travel. Portugal is on the green list so fans would be allowed to attend on 29 May. Porto's Estadio do Dragao is the most likely venue because Uefa would prefer not to stage the match in Lisbon, which hosted last year's final. European football's governing body believes holding the match in Portugal will make it easier to gain access for sponsors and broa...

But I found peace in my heart after being able to record this song for all mothers. Appreciate your mama whiles she is alive because it’s not easy to live without a mother,” she said when she posted snippets of a video for the song.

The Kaneshie District Court, on Monday, refused to remand or grant bail to eleven alleged armed self-acclaimed operatives of National Security picked up for undertaking illegal mining in the Eastern Region.The court presided over by Ms Ama Adomako Kwakye, ruled that the State had not provided before it, any written consent from the Attorney General’s office to prosecute the case.
