Madagascar won a place at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament for the first time when they triumphed 1-0 at home against Equatorial Guinea in Group A Tuesday.

Thailand-based midfielder Njiva Rakotoharimalala scored the only goal four minutes before half-time on the huge Indian Ocean island.

Victory lifted the ‘Barea’ (prized cattle) to 10 points from four games and beyond the reach of Equatorial Guinea and Sudan in a four team mini-league from which the top two qualify.

It was the second 1-0 victory for the Malagasy over the Equatoguineans within four days after captain Faneva Ima Andriatsima scored the winner in west Africa last Saturday,

Madagascar are the first country apart from hosts Cameroon to secure a place at the biennial African football showcase, with the 2019 edition set for June 15 to July 13.

They qualified despite having to play a preliminary tie, won 4-2 on aggregate against Sao Tome e Principe, and being seeded fourth behind Senegal, Equatorial Guinea and Sudan.

Senegal will also secure a place among the 24 finalists if they defeat pointless Sudan in Khartoum later Tuesday.

Qualification for the Malagasy came after 18 failed attempts since 1970, with French coach Nicolas Dupuis drawing players from Europe, Asia and Africa.

The standard starting side includes four footballers based in France, one each in Algeria, Belgium, Egypt, Reunion, Saudi Arabia and Thailand, and one local.

Previously unknown in Africa, Dupuis took charge in March 2017 and has transformed Madagascar from traditional whipping boys to a team that held Senegal last month.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“To be a beautiful snowflake…you have to stand out in the cold. ⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And no one likes to stand out in the cold. It usually means that you are alone and uncomfortable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But the snowflake can only exist out in the cold. It is the only place that can support it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are all beautiful snowflakes- one-of-a-kind, original and unique. We can only thrive and be ourselves when we stand out in the cold and stand up for who we are. It’s easy to stay inside in the warm. It’s harder to take a stand and defend who you are by taking the road less traveled. After all, the cold isn’t for everyone; the cold will certainly filter out just the right people for you. The rest of your life awaits your decision. Who will you be?”

Police fires teargas at Saraki, Secondus, amongst protesting Osun polls 

punchnewspapers-1538779288776

Notable national leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party were, on Friday in Abuja, teargassed by the Police while protesting over what they called the crooked way the Independent National Electoral Commission and the Police had been rigging elections in favour of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Those who were teargassed were the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus; President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal; and the Governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dankwambo.

.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, however, escaped the incident because he didn’t follow the protesters to the Police Force Headquarters where the men were teargassed.
.
Dogara left shortly after the team visited the Independent National Electoral Commission headquarters, Maitama, Abuja.
.
Secondus and his team complained about the outcome of the Osun State governorship election, which they believed was won by the PDP candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, but was rigged in favour of the APC candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.

The Police also fired gun shots into the air to disperse the protesters who scampered for safety in different directions, with some people sustaining injuries.
.
Some of the protesters and journalists who were affected by the teargas were revived with water.

My opinion

With this happening, it is only clear to us that the police, despite being mocked over their services from the past, are trying to get back on the job, by showing a loyalty..

Breaking: Instagram’s Global Crash creates chaos amongst users.

download

This pretty faithful Wednesday morning the 3rd of October, one of the most used social media site, INSTAGRAM, decided to play an early Halloween prank  on its users by crashing for a while. The crash acvording to witness, was said to have rippled it’s effect by sending it’s addicts and ordinary  users into deep confusion on how to cope should the issue persists.

While it went unnoticed for some, most users were said to have mistaken it for a malfunctioning of their phones, battery, softwares. Others thought it  was the handiwork of the network providers in their country, ranging from Glo, Mtn, 9tel, and WIFI providers. Only a hand full of its users could categorically state that it was INSTAGRAM that infact had the problem.

During the crash, that some are just now hearing of, the users tried to reach out to their fellow users to discuss the issue, only to realise that the users can’t be reach since they all only have their instagram details. We are not sure what might have caused the significant malfunction of the site,  but many are waiting on an official announcement or addressing to the issue.

But no time worris guys, all you addicts and die hard users of instagram, the site is fully back on and properly working, even though someone said it happened a few weeks ago, and went unnoticed  just like this one, we are hoping that doesn’t come to stay.

Lesson learnt : Have other contacts of your instagram friends, for emergencies like this.

Cristiano Ronaldo Accused Of Raping American Woman, Player Plans To Sue.

mezieblog-1538256104315

Lawyers for Cristiano Ronaldo said on Friday they would sue German magazine Der Spiegel after it published “blatantly illegal” accusations by an American woman who alleges she was raped by the Portuguese soccer star in 2009. 

Ronaldo’s lawyer Christian Schertz said in a statement the report was “an inadmissible reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy”, and that he would seek legal redress for his client from the magazine.

The statement was sent to Reuters by Ronaldo’s agent Gestifute in response to a request for comment on the Der Spiegel story. Gestifute did not answer any specific questions about the content of the Der Spiegel report, which Reuters was unable to independently verify.

Ronaldo is one of the biggest names in world sport. He has been named player of the year five times and transferred to Juventus from Real Madrid this summer for 100 million euros. The Italian club declined to comment on the Der Spiegel report.

The magazine said the rape allegedly took place in June 2009 in a hotel room in Las Vegas, according to Leslie Mark Stovall, lawyer for the alleged victim, Kathryn Mayorga.

Ronaldo and Mayorga then reached an out-of-court agreement, according to Stovall as reported in the magazine.

It said, according to Stovall, that she had pledged never to speak of the accusation again and Ronaldo paid her $375,000. “Kathryn was sexually assaulted in June 2009 by an individual named Cristiano Ronaldo,” Mayorga’s lawyer, Leslie Mark Stovall, said in a video published online by Der Spiegel.

Reuters was not able to independently verify Mayorga’s allegations.

Stovall did not immediately respond to email requests from Reuters for comment on the report and Mayorga .. #critianoronald

Papoose gives his emtional opinion on the Bill Cosby jail Sentence.

Bill Cosby goes to jail

@papoosepapoose – So I guess Bill Cosby, isn’t America’s number 1 dad anymore. Is this y’all epitome of a man? How about we haul him away in cuffs! Tarnish that legacy, concept, & positive image. Of a strong family man! In which he projected on television. Out of 60 accusers, they were able to find one case. That wasn’t past the statute of limitations. Just in time, because this case was reopened In 2015. And the alleged incident, happened in 2004. The statute in Pennsylvania is 12 years. 🤔 Take him to PRISON today!!! Never-mind the fact that he was a very productive member of society. Who cares if it’s his first offense. So what this man donated, to numerous charities. Including 20 million to spelman.( The Elite black woman’s college) Forget the fact that he’s a 81 year old, legally blind man. Coincidentally these accusations were made. Right around the time “Cosby” was said to be in the process… of purchasing NBC. #metoomovement Personally I’m not buying this bs. I DO NOT condone rape in any shape, form, or fashion. But I believe he’s not guilty!

 

Bill Cosby goes to jail

@papoosepapoose – See what I mean? Y’all gotta understand… This is all done to tarnish brands. America is all about money! 💰 What does jello have to do with an alleged rape case? Shouldn’t this be handled more seriously? It’s a joke to them… wake up people! I DO NOT condone rape in no shape, form, or fashion. But I believe he is not guilty.
