Businesswoman, seasoned actress, and co-founder of Ferguson Films Connie Ferguson announced the launch date and gala dinner for the foundation this week. Her husband, late actor and co-founder of Ferguson Films Shona Ferguson, died last year before he could realize his vision. Shona announced before his passing that his family production company, Ferguson Films, was opening a school to groom young talent.
“The official launch of the Ferguson Foundation is on the way. Thank you for your patience and support in the build-up to the big day, and all the activities we have been undertaking. The Ferguson Foundation Gala Launch, in loving memory of our co-founder Shona Ferguson, will be held on Friday, August 5, 2022. I am looking forward to having you join us in the fruition of this vision and celebration of the life of a true visionary of empowerment and upliftment,” Connie wrote.

4. Nigeria: Minority group in senate threatens to impeach Buhari
Senators give Buhari six weeks to address insecurity or face impeachment https://t.co/Ixdkc4jNre— Peoples Gazette (@GazetteNGR) July 27, 2022
On Wednesday, July 27, Nigerian opposition senators called for President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment if, within six weeks, he failed to “resolve the issue” of insecurity. At a closed Senate session Wednesday, senators of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) attempted to introduce a motion giving Buhari an ultimatum to improve the country’s security. “Nowhere is safe in Nigeria, even Abuja. Urgent steps need to be taken,” Senator Philip Abuda told the press after walking out of the chamber.
Aduda said the motion was blocked by Senate president Ahmed Lawan, prompting the opposition senators to leave. Parliament is controlled by the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) party rendering unlikely any successful impeachment vote. For a president to be impeached, the motion requires support by two-thirds of senators. Less than a year before the end of his second term in office, the results of president Muhamadu Buhari’s security policy have been widely decried.
5. Barcelona confirm €60m Kounde transfer as Spanish giants hijack another Chelsea target
Official, confirmed. Jules Koundé has joined Barcelona on permanent deal from Sevilla. 🚨🔵🔴 #FCB— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 28, 2022
“Barcelona and Sevilla have reached an agreement for the transfer of Jules Olivier Kounde, awaiting the player passing a medical and the signing of contracts”, both club confirm. pic.twitter.com/1xZgpSwgUf
Barcelona is set to beat Chelsea to the signing of Sevilla center-back Jules Kounde as the defender will seal his move to the Camp Nou once completing a medical and officially signs the contract. The Blaugrana had already beaten the Blues to Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski re-signed Ousmane Dembele amid interest from Stamford Bridge and signed Andreas Christensen from Thomas Tuchel on a free deal.
Xavi now has 23-year-old Kounde to further shape the future of his defense as stalwarts such as Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba progress into the latter stages of their careers. Kounde, courted by Chelsea since last summer, had been with Sevilla since 2019 and has made close to 100 Liga appearances. He can play right-back in addition to centrally, and that former role may be his manager’s preference in his first season.
