Black Stars arrive safely in Japan for four-nation tournament

The Ghana national team have landed safely in Osaka, Japan for the four-nation tournament (Kirin Soccer Cup 2022) which involves the hosts, Chile and Tunisia.

The tournament is scheduled to take place from Friday, June 10, 2022 to Tuesday, June 14, 2022.

Black Stars arrived in Japan for the tournament on Wednesday without some key players including goalkeeper Joseph Wollacot, Gideon Mensah, Elisha Owusu and Jonathan Mensah.

Wollacot and Owusu were excused from the trip to the Asian country due to illness and injury they are carrying which saw miss the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Central African Republic last Sunday.

Mensah who has been key to the team since the World Cup playoff has been given permission to go and sort out his future. His loan spell at Girondins Bordeaux has expired and is expected to find a new club this summer.

Mensah also missed out on the journey to Japan for the tournament due to a serious head injury he suffered against Central Africa in the AFCON qualifications.

The experienced central defender was rushed to Clinica Girasol in Luanda for further medical care after receiving an emergency treatment on the field. He was released from the hospital on Monday.

Ghana is already missing the services of Arsenal star Thomas Partey due to an injury, Joseph Aidoo, Richard Ofori, Antoine Selorm Semenyo and Alexander Djiku.

The Black Stars will begin the Kirin Soccer Cup tournament with an encounter against the host country on Friday at the Noevir Stadium Kobe before facing either Chile or Tunisia four days later.

E/R: Police on manhunt for step-father, mother and ‘area boys’ who molested 15yr old girl

The Eastern Regional Police command is on the heels of the step-father, the mother and the ‘area boys’ who allegedly molested a 15-year-old girl at Ofoase Ayirebi.

The Eastern Regional Police commander who has visited the victim has launched a manhunt for the suspects in the matter, Starr News has gathered.

The command is also urging residents to volunteer information that could help arrest the suspects.

The step-dad whose name was only given as Kofi in response to his daughter’s alleged waywardness hired and led a group of neighbourhood boys to abuse and sexually molest the victim.

Background

The victim was said to have left the house on Friday, 27th May, 2022 and failed to return home until Saturday morning, provoking the step-father to organize some boys within the neighbourhood to beat her up, only for them to end up torturing and sexually assaulting her in the process.

Captured on video intercepted by GhanaWeb, the visual begins with the victim brushing her teeth in the morning when the three boys holding canes accosted her and poured water over her. Next, they viciously splashed volumes of water on her, chanting, “Today, we’ll wash a vehicle” in the process.

With the victim now wailing uncontrollably, one of her assailants whom the victim consistently referred to as Paapa then began removing her upper wear, leaving her with only her braziers on.

Another boy then joins him as they hold her by the hands and legs and forcibly removed her ‘skin-tight’ trousers, leaving her stark naked in the process.

They then marched her into a nearby bush, beating and caning her naked body in the process. At a point, Paapa gropes her violently from behind before inserting his fingers into her private part.

A man, identified as her step-dad, now emerges in the video also with a cane with which he also mercilessly whips the victim.

The other boys, now join in the beating as they lead her back to the house.
The victim in an audio recording available to this portal is heard narrating her ordeal to her uncle. She admitted leaving the house and spending the night outside but claimed that she spent the slept at her friends’ place.

According to her, she met the three boys in the morning who told her, her step-father had sent them to come beat her. She furthered that during the assault, one of the boys told her that she would have been spared this ordeal if she allowed them to sleep with her.

She said, “my step-father got two canes to beat me, one broke and he took the other. I ran away and one of the boys pursued and told me all this wouldn’t have happened if I allowed them to have sex with me and the other inserted his finger into my private part.”

The victim alleged that her ordeal did not end there as upon reaching the house, the father instructed the boys to insert pepper into her private part. She complained, “My father asked one of them to bring pepper which they inserted into my private part and poured water on me.”

Achimota School Rasta Student Accused of Assault by his Father

The father of Tyrone Marghuy, one of the boys at the heart of last year’s Achimota School-Rastafarian boys’ saga, Tereo Marghuy says his son has violently attacked him.

In a video posted on social media, the father is seen with bloody bruises on his hand, saying his son allegedly abused him after a confrontation.

Tereo Marhguy narrating the incident to Citi News said “He was supposed to repair a tablet for his sister, and then they were ready about an hour ago, but he was still sitting there watching TV. I went in there and asked Tyrone what was going on. He burst out and started insulting his sister and unplugged the laptop. He walked over to me and I threatened to slap him, and then he held my hand, so through the struggling up and down, I had blood everywhere.”

NAGRAT threatens strike over non-payment of Cost Of Living Allowance

The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) is demanding that the government pays 20 percent Cost Of Living Allowance (COLA) to its members by the end of June 2022.

Vice President of the Association, Jacob Anaba, explains that the ultimatum comes on the back of current economic conditions and the worsening plight of teachers, as well as government’s failure to negotiate.

“The President had earlier said, and I quote, “we (government) know how to bring the economy back to life. What we do not know is how to bring people back to life”. The question is what has changed? Mr. President, your people (workers) are dying; please attend to them now and do not prioritise the economy over the human resources. The worker can no longer bear the economic hardship.”

At a press briefing in Accra, on Tuesday, June 7, 2022, the leadership of NAGRAT noted they would be pushed to embark on an industrial action if their demands are not met.

“This situation has resulted in the rank and file of our membership calling for positive action. Therefore, we are by this conference serving notice to those who matter that their ineptitude towards the call by the Unions to grant COLA to the suffering Ghanaian Worker is leaving us no alternative than to respond to the incessant demands of our members.”

“We, therefore, demand that, as a matter of urgency, the Government must grant workers a Cost Of Living Allowance (COLA) of 20% at the end of June 2022. Leadership would be left with no option than to declare a strike by the end of July 2022, if all the requests made are not adhered to. Leadership hereby yields to the demand of members for positive action, beginning with the wearing of red bands by the end of June 2022, if the demands made are not met”, he added.
