Cheating Husband makes a Public Apology to His Wife in the Newspaper.

26th June 2014 We’ve got another one of our totally random stories for you today; this time, from Kenya. Former Harambee player, Francis Onyiso has taken the very unusual action of publishing a public apology in the newspaper, after his wife allegedly caught him cheating.

Francis apparently told his wife he was going to watch the World Cup with his friends, but then someone spotted him sneaking into a hotel with another woman. The person knew his wife and so one phone call later, Janet was at the hotel and Francis was in trouble.

The player quickly sought to right his wrong with a public apology in the newspaper, promising it would never happen again. We don’t know yet what Janet will say, but we’ll definitely keep you posted.

 

Stephen Keshi on the list of Possible Replacement for South African Coach, Gordon Igesund.

26th June 2014 While Nigeria’s Super Eagles battle for a place at the World Cup, there seems to be a lot of “Will He, Won’t He”, going on between Nigeria and South Africa. The subject of controversy? Stephen Keshi.

A couple of days ago, the news broke online that Stephen Keshi had signed up for a lucrative 2 year deal with South Africa that would see him become Bafana Bafana’s new coach. Reports claimed that the Coach would fly to South Africa immediately after the tournament to sign the dotted lines and would then begin the job of transforming the South African team.

However, the South African Football Authority has released a statement completely refuting this information. They concede that Stephen Keshi is on the list of coaches being considered for the position but state emphatically that a decision will not be reached until after the tournament.

This is what we do know for sure –1.  Bafana Bafana Coach Gordon Igesund will not be offered a new contract after his current contract expires in August. 2. Stephen Keshi still has one year on his contract. 3. He is on the list of possibilities to replace Gordon Igesund.

As to the rest of it, let’s just ignore the speculations and enjoy the World Cup; EL Reports will definitely let you know once we have a conclusive answer.

 

The All Nigeria Athletics Championship held in Calabar comes to a successful End.

26th June 2014 Africa’s attention is solidly on the World Cup, but there are some other athletic activities that we just have to keep you informed of. The All Nigeria Athletics Championship has just concluded in Calabar. This is the fourth year of the partnership between Cross River State and the Athletic Federation of Nigeria for the staging of the Championship. Based on performances at the Championship, the Athletic Federation of Nigeria has put together the names of athletes who will be heading to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the Africa Championships in Marrakesh.

Some of the names are very familiar. Blessing Okagbare, Nigeria’s foremost sprinter picked up her 6th successive gold medal for the 200 metres in Calabar. She will be entered for 100m, 200m and 4×100m relays in both Glasgow and at the Africa Championships.

There are some newer names on the list such as Stephen Mozia, who won his first All Nigeria gold medal in the men’s shot put in Calabar. He will participate in both the shot put and discuss events.

This year’s All Nigeria Athletic Championships featured an unprecedented number of foreign based athletes and it is from this number that American-born Mark Jerks, winner of the men’s 100m event in Calabar is picked. He will make his first international appearance for Team Nigeria in Scotland and has asked Nigeria to look forward to medals.

Altogether, 37 athletes will be representing Nigeria at the 2014 Commonwealth Games (CWG) billed for Glasgow, Scotland and with some record breaking times recorded at the Championships in Calabar, it is safe to say that we have a lot to look forward to when Team Nigeria heads to Glasgow in August.

French Energy Giant, TOTAL Opens a $1.5 Million Environmental-Friendly Solar Powered Service Station in Lagos.

24th June 2014 It’s definitely a positive turn of events when corporations decide to pursue more environmentally friendly solutions in their operations and so we’re quite pleased with energy corporation Total. Ventures Africa tells us that as part of its commitment to providing greener services across Africa, the French energy giant has opened a $1.5 million environmental-friendly solar powered service station in Lagos; the first of its kind in the West African region.

Senior Vice president Total AMO, Momar Nguer affirmed that the service station is part of the company’s vow to produce innovative and safe energy in line with international health and safety standards. He added that Total’s motivation was not purely financial, but also out of a desire to impact positively in the lives of people in developing economies.

Total will launch an additional solar-powered service station in Nigeria’s capital Abuja before the end of the year and by 2017, it expects to have all its service stations across Nigeria to adapt this new model.

In addition, Total Nigeria Managing Director Alexis Vovk has stated that it is also working on providing effective and environmentally friendly power solutions for Africans. Some solutions include the Awango by Total solar lamps, hybrid energy solutions for the telecommunications industry and of course, the newly launched solar-powered service station.

The company plans to provide access to lighting for 5 per cent “off-the-grid” households in Nigeria in the next three years through the sale of its solar lamps. The lamps will be sold at Total service stations and in partnership with NGOs and cooperative societies.
