Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce said he was pleased with how quickly new signings Callum Wilson, Jeff Hendrick and Jamal Lewis have settled into life at the Premier League club after the trio impressed in Saturday’s 2-0 win at West Ham United. Debut goals for striker Wilson and midfielder Hendrick and a solid display by left back Lewis gave Newcastle a comfortable away win in their opening clash. “It wasn’t just the victory that pleased me, it was the way we went about it,” Bruce, whose side finished 13th last season, told reporters. “All in all, we’ve had a decent start but we won’t get too carried away after one result because there’s still a long way to go,” he added. Bruce’s team then return to league action against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.
The bank wants Tuju's three children, who are directors at the firm, to facilitate repayment of a Sh1.6 billion loan Dari - a hospitality establishment - owes it. Tuju, however, informed Justice Mary Kasango that she can no longer hear the case as he (Tuju) had filed a petition before the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) to kick her out from holding office. “The petition is premised on the manner in which the judge (Kasango) has handled this matter,” Tuju said. If she withdraws, then the case has to be allocated to a judge outside that division as all other judges have recused themselves from hearing the case. The bank accused the trio of failing to allow receivers Muniu Thoithi and George Waweru from accessing or running Dari in order to recover the Sh1.6 billion loan.
A man who was sacked after developing a tumour on his spinal cord, which made him immobile, has been allowed to argue his case before the Supreme Court. Simon Gitau Gichuru will be seeking an interpretation and application of the Constitution’s Article 27 on equality and freedom from discrimination. He claims three appellate judges did this by introducing new and extraneous facts that were not before the trial court in determining the issue when it ruled in his favour against the employer – Package Insurance Brokers Limited. The Court of Appeal held that discrimination did not arise, as only the petitioner was sick and his dismissal could not be weighed against other employees, who were performing while he himself was unable to deliver. In their ruling on July 19, 2019, justices Philip Waki, Asike Makhandia and Fatuma Sichale noted that the circumstances leading to the summary dismissal were of a progressive nature.
Arsenal also streamed a live video across the world so fans could be part of this important move for the club. Hector Bellerin will only leave if Arsenal cannot sell those two players and Paris St-Germain continue their interest in signing the Frenchman. No good Mourinho blaming players for lossI am pleased I was not present at Tottenham’s Enfield Training Centre on Monday. During those years, Mourinho’s approach was to field physical and well-drilled teams who were tough and ruthless to play against. The West London club haven’t made the perfect start to the season, losing 3-0 to rival club Arsenal.
Eustace is among hawkers on the high streets of Nairobi, previously a no-go zone for them. That she sells other materials alongside books means she is often targeted for breaching the terms of the licence. He says that while booksellers and shoe shiners are licensed, the rest of the traders depend on their relationship with the authorities. But it is the way of the streets and unless you belong here, I am told, and you cannot quite get it. Customers buy, and find their way between shops and hawkers, happy to have saved a coin or two.
