Pele son Edinho sentenced to 33 years in Brazil for money laundering

The son of the Brazilian football legend Pele has been sentenced to 33 years in jail for laundering money raised from drug trafficking.

Edinho is a retired footballer who played goalkeeper for Pele's old club, Santos, in the 1990s.
He was first arrested in 2005 and has served a sentence for drug trafficking offences and links with a notorious drug dealer in the city of Santos.

He says he is a drug addict but denies the trafficking charges.
The ruling was issued by a judge in the nearby coastal city of Praia Grande, in Sao Paulo state.
Brazilian media have not been able to contact Edinho, whose real name is Edson Cholbi do Nascimento, but they say he is expected to appeal.

Edinho, 43, works as a goalkeeping coach at Santos.

[Madness] - 15 year old girl ‘raped by 38 men’ - [Malaysia]

AL JAZEERA — Malaysian police have detained 13 men and are looking for other suspects following allegations that a 15-year-old girl was raped by 38 men in the country’s northern region.

The Boko Haram Agenda

Yesterday Accra hosted heads from countries making up the economic community of West african states (ECOWAS). The Boko Haram debacle was high on the agenda of the meeting, perhaps the sole subject.
Without doubt, these terrorists pose the most serious security threat to the sub-region at the moment. We therefore agree that all hands must be on deck to ensure that the bad guys are disabled from extending their bloodletting venture elsewhere, and to annihilate them.

We have observed worryingly though how President John Dramani Mahama has jumped knee-deep into the seemingly intractable security challenge as though throwing a challenge to the terrorists.

In fact, he is carving an image of a Rambo who has the wherewithal to deal with what even President Goodluck Jonathan has failed to handle.

Prophet Nkansah Arrested

How To Identify A Suicide Bomber

Suicide bombing is an act whereby an individual personally delivers explosives and detonates them with the sole aim of inflicting the greatest possible damage, killing himself in the process in order to serve the interests of the sponsoring individuals or organisations.

Records have revealed that suicide bombers are capable of carrying out very wicked, audacious and highly destructive acts that are shocking on the account of their specific intention to destroy critical infrastructure and kill mostly unsuspecting civilians or injure anyone within the range of the explosion. But if I may ask, what kind of a person would sacrifice his life in order to kill innocent people and what would possibly motivate that person to take the offer of becoming a suicide bomber?

Teenage girl commits suicide after mother bans her from Facebook

The Google Made Self-Driving Car - So Darn Cute

Apple Becomes Influential In The Smartwatch Industry

Somehow, despite the fact that Apple hasn’t even announced a smartwatch product, the company is still the second-most influential corporate entity in the smartwatch industry, just behind Samsung.

Samsung has already released a handful of different Smart Watch offerings, and Google, ranking third on Appinions Smart Watch Influencer report, has also shipped various hardware products. Still, the market waits with bated breath for what Apple might do. Despite silence. Remember, all Apple has said about smartwatches is “no comment.”

Behind Samsung, Apple, and Google, other smartwatch companies such as Motorola, LG, Acer, Pebble, Sony, Intel, and Microsoft close out the top ten.

Pregnant Pakistani Woman Stoned To Death Over Marriage

A pregnant woman was stoned to death Tuesday by her own family outside a courthouse in the Pakistani city of Lahore for marrying the man she loved.

The woman was killed while on her way to court to contest an abduction case her family had filed against her husband. Her father was promptly arrested on murder charges, police investigator Rana Mujahid said, adding that police were working to apprehend all those who participated in this “heinous crime.”
Arranged marriages are the norm among conservative Pakistanis, and hundreds of women are murdered every year in so-called honor killings carried out by husbands or relatives as a punishment for alleged adultery or other illicit sexual behavior.

419 car dealers in Odorkor busted

(DAILY GUIDE) – Two suspected fraudsters have been arrested by the police for having allegedly defrauded six people to the tune of GH¢100, 000 under the pretext of selling a car to them. The suspects are Kwabena Boakye, 40 and Richard Osei Bonsu 41.

Benedicta Ofosu Reveals Why She Worshiped Sarkodie At The Ghana Meets Naija

“I’m a crazy fan of Sarkodie and moreover, I've not witnessed any live show of him so seeing him perform, I felt so amazed and excited. I was standing there; dancing to his music, shouting and I remembered that what I was doing at my place was not getting there so I had that courage to move up there.

His performance was something massive for me. I felt what he did and I was so much happy about it. I wanted to show him that someone feels and appreciates what he is doing”.

I was not expecting anything bigger than just a touch from the rapper.

“I was OK with just touching him and I was so much excited with having a hug from him. I never thought I could have a hug from him”

[Telcos] - The fight for bigger customer base and profit margins.

We have noticed that telecom operators in the country are trying so hard to win/keep customers by bombarding them with unprecedented offers and promotions resulting in a total infringement on their privacy and basic rights.

Recently Airtel introduced their 5 times bonus credit promotion, but with the catch that you actually have to spend some amount per day to qualify for this bonus later. So whatever you use for today will be given back to you 5 times. Others have similar packages like this, but let's face it, nothing beats Tigo's package to its customers. They give you double the amount you recharge as bonus and it does not expire! Not only that, you can use this bonus for calls to all networks and to surf the internet before you actually use the credit you loaded.

[Exposed] - Benedicta Ofosu Worshiping Sarkodie At Ghana Meets Naija


This is the girl "Benedicta Ofosu" who went bonkers and started worshiping Sarkodie on stage. We think she has mental issues, because we just cannot understand why a human being will be so foolish as to bow down and worship another human being. 

Well, she managed to get her 1 minute of fame, but her act was plain foolish. 

She needs psychiatric help asap!

Ghanaian Actress Nuong Faalong Physically and Sexually Assaulted on Set by Nigerian Director

On the morning of Monday, 26th May 2014 at about 12 noon, I was reliably informed that actress Nuong Faalong also known as Edith Faalong had walked off the set of a popular series and terminated her contract with the production company.

She left the set in tears after the director of the series -Prince Amuni Gbenga a Nigerian had barged into her private room while she was in her underwear and proceeded to manhandle her resulting in her sustaining a cut and swollen upper lip.

Luckily for the actress, she was not alone in the hotel room. Her room-mate who was asleep in the bed, got up just in time to save her from further assault as the rest of the cast and crew also rushed into the room to restrain the director.

Two lovers, Ishak Ahmed, 35, and Cindy Brown, a 33-year-old trader, have been arrested for their alleged complicity in the kidnapping of a 28-year-old lady, who was purportedly compelled to undergo a long session of sexual bouts in a hideout at New Fadama, Accra.

That was not the end of the agony of the lady as her captors were said to have applied pepper into her private part and eyes after the sexual act with Ishak Ahmed.

She was told that pictures of the forced sex would be circulated if her parents did not pay a ransom of GH¢1,000 to them.

In her statement, she said, “Suspects kidnapped me while I was returning from church and sent me into a room where a naked man awaited me.”

Developing countries see swelling middle class

Geneva (AFP) - Workers in developing countries are increasingly moving to better jobs and joining the middle class, but 839 million workers still earn less than $2.00 a day, the International Labour Organization said.

"The developing countries are generally in a process of catching up with the advanced economies," ILO chief Guy Ryder told reporters in Geneva ahead of the release of the agency's annual World of Work Report on Tuesday.

Between 1980 and 2011, per capita income in the developing countries like Senegal, Vietnam and Tunisia on average grew 3.3 percent each year, which is far faster than the 1.8 percent growth seen in advanced economies, the report said.

AngloGold Ashanti To Spend $220m On Job Cuts

AngloGold Ashanti is expected to spend about $220 million as settlement packages for some 500 workers, who will be affected by its retrenchment exercise scheduled for August this year.
The exercise, the company indicated, has become necessary owing to the rising cost of production, high under-performance of workers and unstable world market prices.

Yiadom Boakye Amponsah, a former General Manager of Human Resources at Anglogold, who spoke to Citi Fm, an Accra-based radio station, said the inability of Anglogold to make profits was due to mismanagement of its operation.
Mr. Boakye Amponsah stated that the decision by the company to lay-off workers was unfortunate and misplaced.

But Mr. Boakye Amponsah said the Obuasi Mine experienced such challenges in the past, saying ‘I believe that there are a lot of interventions we can consider; I think we have a second look at the programme go through a serious re-think and possibly review what they are doing’

[Exposed] - Ghana Banks Fleecing Customers – CPA

Consumer Protection Agency (CPA), a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) committed to the promotion of the rights of consumers, has uncovered flaws in the country’s banking sector.

A survey by CPA revealed that most of the commercial banks operating in the country were overcharging their customers for services rendered to them.

At a press conference in Accra yesterday, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CPA, Kofi Kapito, said it was realized that customers were charged for services, which under normal circumstances should not attract charges.

“It was realized that banks have different charges for services such as ATM, and also when ordering for cheque books, customers are made to pay counter cheques at the bank premises.”

“Banks are charging for visa fees while some make their customers pay for the ATM cards,” it said.

Dollar Crosses GH¢3 - We Should Be Very Worried

THE US Dollar is soaring in the foreign exchange market, selling around GH¢3.10 in some parts of the capital, despite the introduction of several measures by the Central Bank to bring the situation under control.

Average inter-bank exchange rates for the Ghana Cedi, as announced by the Ghana Association of Bankers for yesterday, said the US dollar was trading at GH¢2.8810 for buyers and selling at GH¢2.8836; but on the black market and in forex bureau, it has crossed the GH¢3 mark, with some selling it at GH¢3.10.

A visit by DAILY GUIDE to some forex bureaux in parts of Accra confirmed this.

Wele : The Meat That Has No Equal

It is one of the meats eaten with strong teeth.
Children as well as adults like it in their food . It
is called wele . We used to fight over them when
we were growing up. I recall that once I almost
soiled my uniform as I wrest wele from a
friend ’ s hand during my basic schooldays.
As the African iconic literary giant , Chinua
Achebe wrote in his classical “

Things Fall Apart :
“ An old woman is always uneasy when dry
bones are mentioned ”; wele is age- unfriendly.
One will ask, what is wele ? Wele is simply the
“ Ghanaian” coinage for cowhide which has been
processed . Although cowhide is mostly called
wele in Ghana ; others prefer calling it ‘ coat’ .
In Nigeria, wele is known as pomo . Wele is
eaten throughout the year by those who have
strong teeth. People with decayed teeth,
schoolchildren and toothless oldies are likely to
be exempted from the consumption of wele .

There is no waakye (a Ghanaian local dish
prepared from rice , beans and millet leaves )
joint that does not add wele in its stew . Wele
seems to top the chart of the preferred part of
beef . It has “ no co - equal” .

It may be the most awesome wedding gift of all time …Ray J is giving Kim Kardashian and Kanye West a $47K check … representing 4 months of his 2014 profits from the epic porn tape with Kim.

It’s breathtaking on 2 levels — that Ray J has such humongous cajones, and that the tape is still raking in a fortune after 7 years.

Here’s the breakdown of the wedding gift.  Mind you, this is just Ray J’s cut

– January  $6,135.60
– February $20,097.31
– March $9,674.76
– April $10,931.52
– TOTAL:  $46,840.13

Now get this … sources from Vivid Entertainment tell us the tape has grossed $50 MILLION!

Remember, we’re told Kim gets AT LEAST as much as Ray J, though we don’t know exactly how much.

We’ve reached out to Kim to see if she’ll accept Ray’s gift but to no avail.

Many have fingered the UT Bank boss as the man behind Mzbel’s pregnancy and because he’s a public figure, Mzbel is being sorted to keep it a secret. The picture above cemented the rumors.

Power outages killing businesses

Presently, all parts of the country served by the national grid experience the planned load-shedding, the consequence of a shortfall in power supply, according to the power producers.

The government has in place an elaborate programme to narrow the gap in the energy supply chain in the country.

The hardest hit by the planned load-shedding are the operators of small-scale businesses such as hairdressers, artisans of all kinds, drinking and 'chop' bar operators, convenience and barber's shops. When the lights go off, these operators have no choice but to close their shops, as they do not have the 'muscle' to purchase generators to serve as redundant power stock which can be used during the power outages.

Big businesses that cannot halt their operations are forced to purchase generators to run their production lines, but the extra cost of production is always passed on to consumers.

Unregistered gun owners likely to face life imprisonment

Suspects found guilty of owning an unregistered gun or a light weapon could soon be handed life sentences.

That’s according to the National Commission on small arms and light weapons.

The commission is currently undertaking consultations to review the existing 1962 legislation to respond to current challenges.

For instance, proposals made for consideration include one can apply to own a weapon at age 21 up from the current age of 18.

There is also a proposal to place geographical limit on weapons registered.  So that it would be impossible for weapons registered in Accra to be taken to Kumasi.

Unemployed Nigerian Graduates to Earn N19,800 Monthly

“The recommendation is our own way of finding solutions to the rising wave of crime in the country and to also force the government to do the needful for the increasing number of unemployed graduates in the country.

We have done our part and it is left for the delegates to either reject or accept it at plenary,” said a committee member.

Bukom Banku & Ayitey Powers Rematch To Be Hosted In Kumasi

The Manager of Braimah ‘Bukom Banku’ Kamoko, Abraham Kotey Neequaye, has confirmed to the Graphic Sports that his boxer has accepted a request for a rematch from Michael ‘Ayittey Powers’ Okine, but on one condition that the bout would be fought in Kumasi where Kamoko has a huge fan base.

Speaking at the sidelines of last Saturday’s SWAG Awards at the Banquet Hall of the State House, Mr Neequaye was optimistic that such a bout would take place in the Garden City, but insisted that his boxer, who defeated Powers in a non-title fight last Thursday, would not accept the same purse as Powers in such a rematch. He asserted that Bukom Banku’s purse must definitely be more since he would be going into the rematch from a position of strength as winner of their last clash.

Mahama Tells Employers To Stop Demanding Job Experience

The President, Mr John Dramani Mahama, has challenged industry to be keen on giving employment to fresh graduates and train them on the job to acquire the necessary experience.
He said the situation where industry demanded some level of work experience before employing graduates was a disincentive to career development.

In the past, he said, many establishments recruited fresh young graduates and trained them to play useful roles in national development.
Addressing the opening session of a national conference on bridging the gap between education/training and industry in Accra Monday, President Mahama challenged educational institutions, especially the universities, to concentrate on producing graduates who the world of work was demanding.
