Sanitation: No Restriction Of Movement On June 29 – LASG
The Lagos State Government says that its decision of no restriction of movement on the last Saturday of June or any other month still stands.Mr Biodun Bamgboye, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Environment, made this known on Tuesday at Alausa, Lagos.Bamgboye, therefore, urged residents to ignore rumours making the rounds on the airwaves and the social media that it has reintroduced the monthly environmental sanitation exercise and vehicular restriction.“There is no basis for the apprehension of some people that they may have their businesses or social engagements disrupted by the vehicular restriction between the hours of 7 a.m and 10 a.m, the restriction period for previous environmental sanitation exercise.“One of the proactive measures undertaken by the governor on his first day in office, was to sign an Executive Order that borders on the declaration of zero tolerance for indiscriminate dumping of refuse all over the state and did not include a restriction for environmental sanitation exercise,” he said.Bamigboye said the governor’s position is that the monthly environmental sanitation exercise cancelled by the last administration, would only be reintroduced after necessary consultations and with the popular support of the majority of Lagosians.He said that the resolve of the present administration was to ensure that machinery was put in motion to have a cleaner, safer and sustainable environment for all the residents.Read more here https://thickmatch.com/sanitation-no-restriction-movement-june-29-lasg/

2019 AFCON: Daniel Akpeyi Will Start Against Guinea - Coach Rohr
Head coach of Nigeria, Gernot Rohr has confirmed that Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, will start in Wednesday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, clash against Guinea.The German tactician stated that Akpeyi will be in goal for the three-time African champions against the Syli Stars because the 32-year-old did well in that position against Burundi.He added that the shot-stopper will be maintained as the number-one ahead of Katsina United’s Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Deportivo de La Coruña’s Francis Uzoho.Nigeria head to the match after defeating Burundi 1-0 over the weekend while Guinea played a draw against Madagascar.Addressing a press conference on Tuesday in Egypt, Rohr said: ”Akpeyi played the first match because in the three weeks preparations he became number one.”I don’t decide in this position alone because we have a good goalkeeper coach Alloy and even my assistant Imama is a former goalkeeper so we speak about this problem everyday each time we are together, so we decided together that Akpeyi starts as number one.”Rohr added: ”At first Ezenwa had a little knee injury in one of the first training sessions in Asaba, so he had to rest and came back slowly, so he lost his number one position because of his injury.”Akpeyi played in the friendlies, he did well and there was no reason to change. Now Ezenwa is coming back and there’s real competition because we agreed Francis Uzoho is number three, so for the game for tomorrow we will have a big decision to take who will start the game.”I think that Daniel Akpeyi with the clean sheet in the first match and very difficult ball he stopped in the match against Burundi, I think he’ll be maintained as the number one.”Source http://www.reportminds.com/2019/06/2019-afcon-coach-rohr-reveals.html

300 Mine Workers Spend 1 Week Underground To Protest Against Boss Who Loves Sex
300 mine workers at Lanxess’s in Rustenburg, South Africa, remained underground for the sixth day yesterday in protest against their boss who loves sex.  The mine workers affiliated to the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA), have been underground since Wednesday afternoon and the protest which was in reaction to the alleged sex-for-jobs scandal at the chrome mine is aimed at initiating an investigation into the scandal. It was learnt that the alleged perpetrator had not been suspended and no disciplinary action had been taken against him, even after the NUMSA members raised a series of issues with the mine bosses. NUMSA's general-secretary Irvin Jim, who confirmed that the 300 mine have remained underground  in protest against their boss who loves sex, said; “We are in the middle of a crisis. Our workers have been exposed to a risky situation for six days and because of the conditions underground, some of them fell sick and had to be taken to hospital. Other issues relate to organisational rights, our union is not recognised despite having the majority in terms of numbers. About 50 members have been dismissed and in our view that was orchestrated by them joining the union.”Ben Marais, managing director at Lanxess, confirmed that the strike started on Wednesday. He said the company’s management received a list of demands that addresses various labour-related matters, including a case of sexual harassment.https://unclesuru.com/2019/06/25/300-mine-workers-spend-1-week-underground-to-protest-against-boss-who-loves-sex/
