Ronaldo scores twice in stunning Man Utd return to see off Newcastle

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice on his return to Manchester United as the hosts eventually cruised to victory against Newcastle to send Old Trafford into raptures. Cheered from the moment he left the team coach on its arrival at the ground, throughout the warm-up and then once the game had started, Ronaldo repaid the backing in the best possible manner. Twelve years after he last scored for Manchester United in this stadium, Ronaldo broke the deadlock in first-half added time when he tapped in after visiting keeper Freddie Woodman spilled Mason Greenwood's shot. Then, after former Liverpool defender Javier Manquillo had levelled with his first Newcastle goal, Ronaldo finished off a flowing move by racing onto Luke Shaw's through ball and drilling a low shot through Woodman's l...

‘Do or die’ does not mean violence – Rev Owusu Bempah defends Mahama

Former President John Mahama has gotten an unlikely defender of his ‘do or die’ comment that has invited criticisms from some quarters. Founder and leader of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries, Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah, who is known for openly criticising Mr Mahama, has defended the former President over what many say was a gaffe.  According to Rev Owusu Bempah, the expression is not a call to violence in the next election. Even Kotoko and Hearts supporters say ‘do or die’ so I don’t believe Mahama meant any harm. Just as I defended ‘all die be die’, I don’t think ‘do or die’ is a call to violence, he told local language radio station, Okay FM. During his ‘Thank You’ tour of the Bono East Region, Mr Mahama said because of the alleged widespread abuse of Executive po...

Zimbabwe: Court Orders Exhumation of Robert Mugabe Remains for Reburial

A Zimbabwean court on Friday confirmed a traditional chief's ruling that former President Robert Mugabe's remains must be exhumed for reburial at a national shrine. Mugabe's children had challenged Chief Zvimba's controversial ruling, arguing he acted outside his jurisdiction when he found former First Lady Grace Mugabe guilty of violating tradition by burying the strongman at his homestead. Zimbabwe's founding father died of cancer in 2019 aged 95. His family claimed his final wish was for President Emmerson Mnangagwa not to preside over his funeral. The former First Lady was ordered to facilitate the exhumation of the long-serving ruler's remains for reburial at a national shrine for luminaries of the country's 1970s liberation war. She was fined five cows and two go...

After his usual laugther while addressing the forum said “You know when you go for these competitions or awards, it is not do or die,” he said in jest. “So, we wish you better luck in 2022.” He added that “But seriously if...
