Pirates fans
Orlando Pirates beat Black Leopards 1-0
17 February 2020, 2:00 AM

Orlando Pirates have moved to second position ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns on the ABSA Premiership log.

They beat Black Leopards by a solitary goal in a tough encounter played at the Thohoyandou Stadium.

Pirates have now registered six successive Premiership victories. And Polokwane City has eased their relegation worries after they beat Cape Town City.

They were bottom of the log and now they are 15th with 20 points.

Pirates were looking for a record eight matches without a loss.

Since head coach Josef Zinnbauer was roped in at the end of last year, he has won six and drew one match.

That performance has made Pirates to be strong contenders for the league title.

Much credit should go to their player, Gabadinho Mhango who came to this match leading the top goal scorer charts with 14 goals.

Black Leopards on the other hand have been slowly on the mend since new coach Alan Clark was roped in as a caretaker coach.

He took over the reins from Cavin Johnson who suffered a heart attack.

In his first match Clark beat Stellenbosch FC and later beat North West University FC in the last 32 of the Nedbank Cup.

It was nil all at half time. Leopards came into this match 13th on the log with 21 points after 21 matches.

Pirates pounced at the death and made a smash and grab with a screamer from Vincent Pule with a shot that deflected from a Leopards defender.

The final score one nil to Pirates.

17 February 2020, 1:00 AM

The Alice Magistrate Court in the Eastern Cape is expected to hear the bail application of 24 year-old University of Fort Hare student, Yolanda Nogemane, who is facing a charge of murder.

She allegedly stabbed her 24 year-old boyfriend, Yonela Bolo, on campus last week.

Nongemane appeared in court last week.

During the appearance students were divided whether she should receive bail or not.

The case has brought the institution’s psychological services under the spotlight with students accusing it of failing to provide psychological support when in need.

Fort Hare management says it is providing the necessary support.

A large crowd of students is expected to picket at court.

The SRC pledged its support to the deceased’s family in this matter.

Those who try to remove Ramaphosa will fail: Makhura

Gauteng African National Congress (ANC) Provincial Chairperson David Makhura says those who try to remove party president Cyril Ramaphosa will fail.

Makhura says there are people trying to divide the ANC in Gauteng. He stated that the ANC will resist those trying to cause anarchy at the ANC National General Council.

“We can’t be a province that is a playground of rascals, anarchists and people who don’t want to work in the organizational processes. We can’t be that type of a province. Gauteng can’t be a playground of people who think the organization doesn’t matter and they matter more; they organize themselves outside structures all the time, Gauteng can’t be the playground of such people.”

Makhura stamping his authority on the ANC in Gauteng, saying the priority is to restore law and order in the party’s structures and get rid it of factionalism, patronage and corruption.

“We are not going to allow these comrades, we are not going to allow this, you will have to remove me to do that, if you want to cause chaos in Gauteng you will have to remove me.”

A hard-hitting Makhura says the upcoming National General Council of the ANC will not tolerate anarchy and those trying to remove Party President.

“All I will say to you is that they will not succeed, whether they are planning or not they will not succeed. I say that with certainty because I know the ANC in this province and you heard the mood, we are the leadership of the ANC here. In Gauteng all i can tell you is that people can caucus and meet in corners, they will not succeed.”

The ANC’s National General Council will take place the middle of 2020.

It’s largely expected that factions opposed to Ramaphosa will call for his head and try to outmanoeuvre the party’s leadership.

Billie Eilish releases theme to forthcoming James Bond film ‘No Time to Die’
16 February 2020, 4:00 AM

American teen pop sensation Billie Eilish, fresh off her big Grammy Awards victory and an Oscar night performance, has released her much-anticipated official theme song to the forthcoming James Bond film “No Time to Die.”

The four-minute ballad, a haunting song of betrayal and despair co-written by Eilish and her older brother, Finneas, and performed to an orchestral arrangement, was posted on Thursday to YouTube and various music streaming sites.

The recording, itself titled “No Time to Die,” was produced by Finneas with a musical arrangement by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley. The track, released by Eilish’s Interscope Records/Darkroom label, includes veteran British session musician Johnny Marr on guitar.

Eilish, 18, becomes the youngest artist ever to write and record a James Bond theme song, following in the footsteps of such stars as Adele, Madonna and Paul McCartney.

The song’s foreboding lyrics more than suggest a romance that meets with a decidedly unhappy ending, as Eilish sings in a chorus:

The movie “No Time to Die,” the 25th title in the James Bond motion picture franchise, is due to arrive in theaters in April, with Daniel Craig resuming his title role as the British secret agent for a fifth and final time.

Eilish is slated to perform the theme song live for the first time at the Brit Awards in London February 18, ahead of the March 9 launch of her North American arena tour, Interscope said in a statement.


Bryant named Basketball Hall of Fame finalist, three weeks after death
16 February 2020, 4:00 AM

Three weeks after Kobe Bryant, one of the most dominant players in NBA history, was killed with his daughter and seven others in a helicopter crash, the global sports icon was named a finalist to the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Bryant, fourth all time in NBA scoring, played for the Los Angeles Lakers during an illustrious 20-year career that was highlighted by five NBA championships, two NBA Finals MVPs and one league MVP.

The announcement came during the NBA All-Star weekend in Chicago, which culminates on Sunday with an exhibition game featuring the sport’s best players. The three-day event is likely to be muted as the National Basketball Association pays homage to the fallen star.

“I’ve never seen in my long life an athlete passing that had the impact that Kobe’s passing had on people, people on the street, people that didn’t even know him,” said Jerry Colangelo, chairman of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, after the announcement was made.

“In my case it was personal… so much more difficult for me and family,” said Colangelo, a long-time NBA executive who was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 2004.

Bryant won nine All-Defensive First Team honors, four All-Star Game MVP awards and a Slam Dunk Contest title. Bryant also sits as the Lakers’ all-time leader in several categories, including games played and steals.

Bryant wore the No. 24 and No. 8 during his career. Both numbers are retired by the Lakers with his jerseys hanging from the Staples Center rafters.

Joining Bryant as finalists were former NBA stars Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and Chris Bosh, along with former Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) stars Swin Cash and Tamika Catchings.
