Chelsea's investigation Son Heung-min was racially insulted at Chelsea

While Chelsea investigates claims that Tottenham star Son Heung-min was subjected to racial abuse at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea has stated that they would take “the harshest action” possible.

It is believed that the incident took place as Son was attempting to take a corner kick during the second half of Sunday’s Premier League match, which ended in a 2-2 tie.

 

In the past, following events involving racist behavior, the club has permanently expelled fans.

 

Chelsea issued a statement in which she referred to discriminatory behavior as “very revolting.”

 

It included: “Despite the fact that Chelsea FC has made it abundantly clear that it has a zero-tolerance policy regarding discriminatory behavior, there are still idiots like this who attach themselves to this club as so-called “fans.” This is embarrassing for Chelsea FC as well as for our coaches, players, staff, and true supporters.

 

“The club will take the most severe disciplinary measures possible against the person who committed this conduct, which is now under investigation.

 

It is not tolerated in Chelsea or in any of our other communities because it has no place there.

 

The long-running “No To Hate” campaign that Chelsea has launched has a new initiative that was introduced on Sunday. This new initiative provides instructions on the back of every seat for how supporters can report alleged abuses by either sending a text message or scanning a barcode using a smartphone.

 

They think that by pinpointing a particular seat from where events either occur or are reported, it will be possible to boost the likelihood that individuals will be apprehended.Chelsea’s investigation Son Heung-min was racially insulted at Chelsea

Chelsea promised strongest response on Son Heung-min racism Incident

After what is being called a racist incident against Son Heung-min during Chelsea’s match with Tottenham for the Premier League on Sunday, Chelsea has stated that they would take “the harshest response.”

During Sunday’s match for the premier league, a supporter of Chelsea is accused of using racist slurs at the South Korean striker Son. The incident took place at Stamford Bridge.

Those Chelsea fans who have been found guilty of racial abuse at Stamford Bridge in the past have been given lifetime bans from the stadium.

Before their match on Sunday against Spurs, the Blues implemented the most recent stage in the ongoing No To Hate campaign by adopting measures to make it simpler for supporters to report any instances of abusive behavior.

There are now instructions on how to report incidences of abuse either by text message or by scanning a barcode on a smartphone affixed to the back of each and every seat at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea is of the opinion that determining the location of a particular seat from where events either take place or are reported will help to boost the likelihood of individuals being apprehended.

The Chelsea Football Club condemns unequivocally any type of discriminatory behavior in the strongest possible terms. According to a statement released by Chelsea, “it has no place at Chelsea or in any of our communities.”

There are still fools like these who attach themselves to this club as so-called ‘fans,’ which is a disgrace for Chelsea FC, our coaches, players, staff, and our loyal supporters. Chelsea FC has constantly made its zero tolerance policy on discriminatory behavior extremely clear.

“We are conducting an investigation into this occurrence, and if the individual responsible for this is found, they will face the most severe penalty from the club.”Chelsea promised strongest response on Son Heung-min racism Incident

FIFA have sold 2.45 million tickets for this year’s World Cup

FIFA, the governing body of soccer throughout the world, has announced that organizers have sold 2.45 million tickets for this year’s World Cup, which will be held in Qatar. More than half a million of those tickets were sold during the most recent sales period, which ran from July 5 to August 16.

According to FIFA, the matches in the group stage that had the most number of tickets granted were those involving Cameroon and Brazil, Brazil and Serbia, Portugal and Uruguay, Costa Rica and Germany, and Australia and Denmark.

“Fans living in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United States, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, England, Argentina, Brazil, Wales, and Australia led the way and the digital queues by securing the largest number of tickets,” said FIFA. “Fans living in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United States, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, England, and Brazil also secured the largest number of tickets.”

Three months before the start of the tournament in Qatar, there are more than 500,000 seats that have not yet been claimed.

According to FIFA, the launch date for the subsequent sales phase will be revealed by the end of September.

Following the beginning of the last phase of the sales phase, Doha will also see the beginning of sales over-the-counter.

The opening ceremony for the World Cup will take place on the day before the first game of the tournament, which will be played on November 20 between the host nation and Ecuador. This is a day earlier than the tournament was initially slated to begin.

It will be the first time that the World Cup has been played in the Middle East, and the tournament has been moved to a later part of the year than its regular June-July slot in order to escape the region’s oppressive summer heat.

Fans coming from countries other than Qatar can purchase tickets starting at 250 riyals, which is equivalent to $100 USD.

In order for fans to reserve lodging in Qatar through an official event website, they must first have their ticket purchase verified.

About two million tickets were made available to the general public, while another million were reserved for FIFA stakeholders such member federations, sponsors, broadcasters, and hospitality program participants.

Previously, FIFA stated that it had received three million ticket requests for the World Cup final, which would be held on December 18 – Qatar’s national day – in the brand new Lusail Stadium, which has 80,000 seats.

The CEO of Ugandan Airlines lacks the necessary qualifications for the position.

The CEO of Ugandan Airlines lacks the necessary qualifications for the position.

According to the findings of a parliamentary committee, Jennifer Bamuturaki, the current CEO of Uganda Airlines, did not possess the required level of academic achievement when she was selected for the position.

The information became public when she gave the Committee on State Authorities and State Enterprises (Cosase), which is investigating the findings from the Auditor General’s report for Financial Year 2020/2021, copies of her curriculum vitae (CV), job description, and academic documents.

Additionally, Ms. Bamuturaki presented the documentation of high-ranking supervisors at the director and manager levels.

At the time of her appointment, Ms. Bamuturaki only had a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Works and Social Administration, and she did not have a post graduate qualification; however, this was a qualification that was required for the post. The committee, which was chaired by the Member of Parliament for Nakawa West Joel Ssenyonyi, indicated that this information.

It was highlighted that Ms. Bamuturaki did not have any postgraduate training in administration or any other business-related degree, despite the fact that she possessed the majority of the other credentials listed in the advertisement for the CEO role.

In addition to that, she has 15 years of experience, which is far more than the needed 10 years of experience for candidates.

Ms. Bamuturaki disclosed, on the other hand, that she is now attending classes at Makerere University in order to earn a Master of Arts degree in Public Administration.

She stated that in contrast to other fields of work in Uganda, the administration of the aviation industry depends heavily on one’s level of experience, and that she possesses a significant amount of experience working in the industry in addition to certificates from the International Air Transport Association (IATA). She went on to say that because of this, she is qualified for the position.

“In aviation, IATA does not offer you degrees. It issues credentials such as diplomas and certificates. If I were to collect all of the certifications that I have received from IATA, they would add up to a diploma; however, I already hold a degree. Ms. Bamuturaki told media in following the committee’s disclosures that it does not matter if I went to the moon or whether I did MDD; what counts is [whether] I have the talent, and I do.

Ms. Bamuturaki told anyone who disagreed with her appointment to look into the matter with the board members of Uganda Airlines.

Legislators, on the other hand, have promised to pursue legal action against her.

Gerald Nangoli, a member of the Elgon County Legislative Assembly, questioned how a chief executive officer (CEO) who did not have have the necessary expertise or qualifications to lead a government agency that handled billions of dollars in taxpayer funds could be hired.

“As a nation, we run the danger of incurring financial losses. This brings shame not only on the taxpayers of Uganda but also on the government of Uganda. It is time to put an end to this corrupt practice of nepotism.

In July of 1995, Ms. Bamuturaki began her career as a country manager at the Imperial Botanical Hotel. She later transferred to the Sheraton Hotel and worked there between the years 1996 and 2000.

She had various different positions at the Sheraton, including that of desk relations officer and sales manager, among others.
After that, she began working for East African Airlines, where she was employed from September 2000 until September 2003. After that, she moved on to a travel agency, where she served as a sales manager for a period of one year.

Between the months of April 2007 and 2014, Ms. Bamuturaki was also employed with the commercial section of Air Uganda.

Later on, she went back to the Sheraton Hotel to work there as the Head of Sales and Marketing between the years of 2014 and 2016. After that, she moved on to the Golden Tulip Hotel, where she worked as the director of sales and marketing until the year 2019, before moving on to become the Uganda Airlines Commercial Director.

Following that, Ms. Bamuturaki was promoted to the position of Chief Executive Officer of Uganda Airlines.The CEO of Ugandan Airlines lacks the necessary qualifications for the position.

Reasons For COSATU to start a national strike on 24 August 2022

Reasons For COSATU to start a national strike on 24 August 2022

JOHANNESBURG – The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has issued a summons to all South African employees and citizens to participate in the upcoming nationwide strike that will take place the following week.

On Wednesday, August 24, Cosatu is encouraging members of the public to either stay home from work or participate in one of the many rallies that will be held around the nation.

At a press conference held on Thursday at the Cosatu House in Braamfontein, the president of the federation, Zingiswa Losi, stated that the purpose of the protected national strike was to put pressure on both the government and the private sector to correct and resolve the socioeconomic challenges that continue to stifle South African households.

“It is not acceptable for workers to continue to do nothing while we continue to suffer. The lives of the people in South Africa need to change, and as a result, we are advocating that all of us join hands together and raise these problems since it is not just about workers who are being paid slave wages; rather, it is also about an economy that is unable to produce jobs.

This news comes less than a week after the South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) suggested that it would also begin a countrywide shutdown over the growing cost of living, power shedding, and gasoline prices on the same day as the government’s statement.

  • To establish one union for each industry within six months.
  • To focus on the exploitation of women workers.
  • To call for the lifting of the state of emergency, withdrawal of troops from the townships and release of all political prisoners.
  • To continue the call for international pressure, including disinvestment.
  • To demand for the right to strike and picket.
  • To determine a national minimum wage.

Reasons For Emirates stop flights to Nigeria in September.

Emirates to suspend Nigeria flights from September over trapped funds, Due to stuck funds, Emirates will stop flights to Nigeria in September, Reasons For Emirates stop flights to Nigeria in September.

Importers and investors who wish to move their profits outside of the country will have a more difficult time obtaining access to foreign currency as a direct consequence of this development.

Even though oil accounts for almost 90 percent of Nigeria’s export earnings, the government has been having trouble maintaining production levels due to thefts from pipelines and a general lack of investment over the years.

According to a study that came out in June from the Multinational Air Transport Association (MATA), Nigeria was keeping profits from foreign airlines that had bases in the country amounting to $450 million.

Emirates said that it had failed to make any progress in its efforts to establish contact with the relevant authorities in order to request urgent help from such authorities.

Emirates stated in a statement that “we have taken the painful decision to cease all flights to and from Nigeria, effective 1 September 2022)” This decision was made “to avoid future losses and impact on our operating expenses that continue to mount in the market,” Emirates said. “We have taken the painful decision to cease all flights to and from Nigeria.”

A phone placed to the Federal Ministry of Aviation requesting comment was not immediately returned by a spokesperson from that department.

Emirates sent a letter to the government earlier this month stating that it was considering suspending service to Lagos because it was unable to retrieve $85 million that had been stranded in the nation since July and the amount had been increasing by $10 million each month. The letter stated that Emirates was considering suspending service to Lagos because it was unable to retrieve the money.

The airline company added that it would reevaluate its position if there was a change in the status of the frozen funds during the next several days.

According to what was said, customers will be aided in arranging alternate travel plans whenever that was possible.

On Thursday, Emirates Airlines announced that beginning September 1, 2022, it would no longer serve Nigeria.

In a statement, the UAE’s national airline said that it had made the choice because it was unable to bring back foreign currency it had earned in Nigeria.

Three weeks ago, airlines pleaded with Aviation Minister Hadi Sirika to allow the return of $85 million in earnings. There is a foreign exchange crisis in Nigeria, which has led to a depreciation of the Naira versus the dollar.

Malami’s $418 million Paris Club refund action was “fraudulent and self-serving,” according to the NGF.

Emirates airline’s Divisional Senior Vice-President (DSVP), International Affairs, Sheik Majid Al Mualla, wrote to the minister about its plans to reduce its operations in Nigeria beginning on August 15, 2022.

It announced that the number of flights departing from and arriving at Lagos’s Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) will be cut in half, from 11 to 7.

Emirates claimed it “had no choice but to take this measure” to prevent further losses caused by Nigeria’s blocking of the airline’s payments.

According to a report from July 2022, “Emirates has US$ 85 million in money waiting to be repatriated from Nigeria. With 11 weekly flights to Lagos and 5 to Abuja, the airline has accumulated monthly running expenditures of more over $US 10 million.

The airline stated it cannot continue to operate at the current level “in the face of rising losses, especially in the harsh post-COVID-19 context” and that the money is needed immediately to cover operating costs and keep its services to Nigeria commercially viable.

Furthermore, “Emirates did try to stem the losses by proposing to pay for gasoline in Nigeria in Nairas, which would have decreased one portion of our continuing expenditures,” but this request was rebuffed by the supplier.

The accumulated earnings of Emirates need the transfer of foreign cash into Nigeria to fund the company’s ongoing operations there. Our income is out of reach and not even accruing interest on credit.

This is not a choice we have made lightly, Your Excellency. To be sure, we’ve done everything we could to coordinate with the CBN to resolve this problem. After our SVP’s meeting with the CBN’s Deputy Governor in May, he wrote to the Governor directly the following June, but still heard nothing back.

To improve FX allocation, Emirates had meetings with its bank in Nigeria and worked with IATA, but with mixed results. We’ve put in a lot of time and effort, yet things just keep getting worse. We are in the unenviable situation of having to reduce flights to try to stem the tide of future losses.

It also requested help from the Nigerian government in order to alleviate its financial restriction, which is seen as the airline’s most pressing problem.

Pitso Mosimane is the first South African coach to get his CAF Pro-Licence

Pitso Mosimane is the first South African coach to get his CAF Pro-Licence

Pitso Mosimane’s historic accomplishment of acquiring the CAF Pro license has been recognized by the South African Football Association (SAFA), which has also given its stamp of approval to the Pitso Mosimane Soccer Schools.

On Thursday, Mosimane received his CAF Pro license at a press conference with SAFA president Dr. Danny Jordaan.

Mosimane completed the CAF Pro license course in Morocco, making him the first South African coach to do so. He began the course in 2019, but it was stopped by Covid 19.

SAFA president Dr. Danny Jordaan remarked, “For us, it is quite a significant milestone in the history of South African football.”

The applicants were chosen based not only on coaching but also on achievements, and what we have today and why we are assembled is to recognize the final certification of the CAF Pro license. The candidates have either won the CAF Champions League, CAF Confederations Cup, or another important CAF competition.

Coach Pitso Mosimane will be given a CAF Pro license, which is comparable to a UEFA A license. By holding a “A,” or “Pro,” license, a coach is now legally allowed to lead any team in any part of the world.

He is the first South African coach to join the ranks of those who have earned degrees, certifications, and international renown. This serves as another proof that his work and teaching skills are appreciated not just on the European continent but also in his native country.

With a goal of reshaping South African soccer, SAFA has supported the Pitso Mosimane Soccer Schools, which will train young players and coaches all around the nation.

At the present, “Jingles” is widely considered to be the top coach on the African continent. He plans to use his prominence and experience to give back to South African soccer by helping to train the country’s future stars at the Pitso Mosimane Soccer Schools.

‘Just about two weeks ago, we talked about school sport, and of course we agreed that one of the things we must do is to enhance school sport in this nation as a basis to eventually change Bafana Bafana into a highly competitive squad to be among the best on the continent,’ Jordaan said.

“FIFA is doing a special-focus program to focus on school sport, so we’ve invited everyone in charge of school sports in our 52 areas to attend there on Monday of next week during physical education.”

“I was pretty impressed by the effort he has taken in this respect while we were talking about this crucial issue of school sport. We are pleased to present this award of appreciation to a professional license coach who has his sights set not just on the CAF Champions League and the AFCON, but also on the grass roots from whence the players emerge.

Long-term improvements to these areas will greatly benefit South African football.

Mosimane has been without a club for two months after leaving Al Ahly, where he won the CAF Champions League twice in a row, the CAF Super Cup once, the Egypt Cup twice, and two bronze medals in the FIFA Club World Cup.

Since then, he and his technical staff at MT Sports, his agency, have begun a Coaching Masterclass Series, which kicked out at Royal AM. He also recently appeared as a special guest at the Citizens week hosted by Tanzanian powerhouse Young Africans Sports Club.

South African Football Association (SAFA) have honoured Pitso Mosimane

Pitso Mosimane has been recognized by the South African Football Association (SAFA) for his historic feat of obtaining the CAF Pro license, and the SAFA has also given its support and endorsement to the Pitso Mosimane Soccer Schools.

On Thursday, SAFA president Dr. Danny Jordaan and Mosimane conducted a joint news conference. The purpose of the meeting was to present Mosimane’s CAF Pro license to the South African strategist. Mosimane has been a member of the South African national team since 2006.

Mosimane is now the first South African coach to get the CAF Pro license. He began the course in 2019, but it was delayed by Covid 19 and just recently finished in Morocco. Mosimane is also the first South African coach to attain this accomplishment.

Dr. Danny Jordaan, president of the South African Football Association, referred to the event as “quite a momentous milestone in the history of South African football.”

“What we have here and why we are assembled is to recognize the final qualification of the CAF Pro license; the candidates were picked not just on coaching but also on achievements. “What we have here and why we are together is to recognize the final certification of the CAF Pro license. The applicants have either already won the CAF Champions League, the CAF Confederations Cup, or one of the other important events held by CAF.

“What we are going to hand over to coach Pitso Mosimane is the CAF Pro license, which is similar to, and the same as, the UEFA A license. ” This coach now possesses the qualifications necessary to lead any squad, regardless of their location, thanks to the A license and the Pro license.

“He holds the distinction of being the first South African to be counted among such coaches, who have now graduated, been certificated, and are recognized all over the world. This is only to reaffirm that his efforts and his abilities as a coach are recognized, not only on the continent but also here at home.

 

In addition, the South African Football Association (SAFA) has given its support to the Pitso Mosimane Soccer Schools, which aim to improve South African football by training players and coaches at the school level. This initiative will be implemented all throughout the nation.

Through the Pitso Mosimane Soccer Schools, “Jingles,” who is widely considered to be the finest coach on the African continent at the present time, will donate his knowledge and prestige to the local game in order to foster the development of the next generation of players.

Jordaan stated that “just about two weeks ago, we talked about school sport and of course we agreed that one of the things we must do is to strengthen school sport in this country as a foundation to eventually transform Bafana Bafana into a very competitive team to be among the best on the continent.” “Just about two weeks ago, we talked about school sport and of course we agreed that one of the things we must do is to strengthen school sport in this country as a foundation to eventually transform Bafana Bafana

“Because FIFA is running a special-focus program to focus on school sport, we’ve invited everyone from our 52 regions who is in charge of school sports to go there on the Monday of the next week in physical education.

“When I was talking to him about this crucial topic of school sport, I was pretty enthused by the effort he has done in this respect. I believe that it will be beneficial to the school. We are excited to be able to present a recognition certificate of a Pro license coach, who is not only thinking at the top about the CAF Champions League and the AFCON, but also at the grassroots level, which is where the players originate from.

If we are able to resolve those issues over the course of South African football’s history, we will be in a far better position.

Mosimane is currently without a club because he left Al Ahly two months ago. During his time with the Egyptian giants, Mosimane won back-to-back CAF Champions League titles, the CAF Super Cup, the Egypt Cup, and two bronze medals at the FIFA Club World Cup. Mosimane is currently without a club because of his success with Al Ahly.

Since then, he has begun a Coaching Masterclass Series with his technical staff in partnership with his agency MT Sports. The first event of this series took place at Royal AM, and he was also a special guest during Citizens week with Tanzanian powerhouse Young Africans Sports Club.
