Actress and fashion designer Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa finally responds to rumors that she and her estranged husband, Grammy nominee DJ Black Coffee have rekindled their romance. Setting the record straight about her relationship status, the “Isibaya” star took to her Insta stories on Thursday to confirm that she is “very single.”
“I’m still very single…Not back anywhere. Still my own person. Someone’s getting paid to lie,” offered the star. The rumour was sparked by controversial podcaster MacG Mukwevho when he alleged that the pair have reconciled amid their divorce and abuse allegations.
4. UN orders investigation into Ethiopia war abuses

The United Nations Human Rights Council has ordered an international investigation into abuses carried out during the conflict in Ethiopia. The European Union had called for a special sitting of the council in Geneva after rights groups said violations committed during more than a year of conflict might amount to war crimes.
Ethiopia has dismissed the move as politically motivated. The UN rights council again warned that all sides in the civil war were committing severe violations. It said there was a risk to the entire region and called on all parties to pull back.
5. Mohamed Salah: Liverpool forward equals another Premier League record
Mohamed Salah grabbed another record on Thursday, December 16. The 29-year-old’s goal in Thursday’s win against 19th-placed Newcastle — a side he has never failed to score against at Anfield — means Salah equalled Jamie Vardy’s record of scoring or creating a goal in 15 consecutive Premier League matches. But records are nothing new for the incredible Salah.
In October, he became the first Liverpool man to score in nine successive games and the hat-trick against Manchester United in the following match left him as the highest-scoring African player in Premier League history, overtaking Didier Drogba’s mark of 104 goals. These records can be added on to a whole heap of historical achievements in the red of Liverpool.
