2. Cardi B Is pregnant with her second child

Cardi B is pregnant with her and her husband Offset’s second child, a fact she revealed during her performance at the 2021 BET Awards with Migos. Midway through the live debut of “Type Shit,” the Bodak Yellow hit rapper emerged suddenly to perform her verse in a rhinestone-covered black jumpsuit that showed off an impressive baby bump.

This is the second time she’s used a live performance to announce her pregnancy: She first revealed she was expecting Kulture, their first child, during her performance of “Be Careful” on SNL in 2018.

3. South Africa: Ramaphosa places the country under alert Level 4

South Africa’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa has moved the country to alert Level 4 lockdown, with stricter restrictions from today, Monday. This is after the Ministerial Advisory Committee (MAC) advised that the limited restrictions previously imposed were not that effective. This does not include work, business or commercial travel, transit through airports or the transport of goods.

To ease pressure on hospitals, the sale of alcohol is prohibited for both on-site and off-site consumption for 14 days. Ramaphosa said the MAC had advised that a prohibition would ease the pressure placed on hospital services by alcohol-related emergency incidents. All private and public schools will close for the winter holidays from Wednesday.

4. Ghana: 2021 Census counting begins

The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) started the actual enumeration of people, beginning with those in transit on Sunday. Enumerators in the 2021 Population and Housing Census (PHC) visited various places to count people in homeless households, in makeshift structures and open spaces, described as “outside sleepers,”  people who were in transit, those at transport terminals, those who were spending short stays in institutions such as hotels and guest houses and hospitals.

The Census Night, defined as the period between 6 p.m. yesterday and 6 a.m. this morning, saw more than 60,000 enumerators across the country spending the night counting the eligible class of people.

5. Jonas Eidevall: Arsenal women appoint Rosengard boss as new head coach

The Swede, who had a brief spell as Henrik Larsson’s assistant at Helsingborgs, has led Rosengard to three Swedish titles in two spells and has coached at the men’s side Lunds BK.
