1. ASAP Rocky charged with assault over November shooting

Rapper A$AP Rocky has been formally charged with assault with a firearm after he was previously arrested in April over allegedly shooting A$AP Relli after a disagreement in Los Angeles back in November 2021. He later posted a $500,000 bond. According to reports, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced the official charges for assault with a semiautomatic firearm on Monday, August 15. The Harlem-born artist’s arraignment is today, Wednesday, August 17. If found guilty, the 33-year-old could face up to nine years in prison.

A$AP Relli (born Terell Ephron) reportedly filed a civil lawsuit against Rocky. Attorneys Jamal Tooson and Brian Hurwitz, say that Rocky lured Relli, who is a talent manager and producer, to a central Hollywood location under the impression that they would “discuss a disagreement between the two of them.” Tooson and Hurwitz claim that Rocky (born Rakim Mayers) arrived at the location with a semi-automatic handgun. “After arriving at the location, a conversation ensued whereby without provocation, warning, or any justification, A$AP Rocky produced the handgun and intentionally fired multiple shots at Mr. Ephron.”

4. Kenya election 2022: Raila Odinga rejects William Ruto’s victory

Raila Odinga has rejected the results of Kenya’s presidential election saying that the figures announced on Monday were “null and void.” According to the official results, Odinga narrowly lost to Deputy President William Ruto. Odinga accused the head of the electoral body of a “blatant disregard of the constitution.” “We totally without reservation reject the presidential election results,” he said. Making his remarks in front of supporters in the capital, Nairobi, he said that there was “neither a legally elected winner nor a president-elect.”

The 77-year-old long-time opposition leader was running for president for the fifth time. He has challenged the results in the previous two elections, including successfully in 2017. This time around, the chairman of the electoral body Wafula Chebukati said he got 48.8% of the vote in last Tuesday’s election compared to Ruto’s 50.5%.

5. Tottenham sign teenage sensation Destiny Udogie but loan him back to Udinese

Tottenham has confirmed the signing of 19-year-old left-back Destiny Udogie from Serie A side Udinese. The defender is the club’s seventh signing of a busy summer transfer window for Antonio Conte’s side. Udogie has agreed to a five-year permanent deal with Tottenham but will head back to Udinese on loan for the rest of the 2022-23 campaign. The defender caught Tottenham’s eye after an impressive campaign in which he made 37 appearances in all competitions and scored five times.

Udogie joins Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, Clement Lenglet, and Djed Spence in signing for Spurs this summer. Tottenham has not disclosed a fee for Udogie but it’s reported the north Londoners have splashed out around £16.8 million (€20m) for the talented teenager.
