Reality TV star and model Naledi Willers has died. Naledi’s good friend, Ndo Maleho, confirmed the news in a social media post. Her family also released a statement confirming her death.

Naledi was a model, television personality and businesswoman best known for her time on The Real Housewives of Johannesburg. She was a full-time cast member during season one. While it has not been confirmed as the cause of death, Naledi opened up about having been diagnosed with stage 2 triple-negative breast cancer in 2019.

Our condolences go out to those she left behind.

4. Nearly half of reported Omicron cases in Africa – WHO

Ten African countries account for 46% of Omicron cases reported globally, according to the World Health Organization. It says the majority of these countries are within southern Africa, where scientists are being extra-vigilant for other cases and are analyzing samples to check for changes to the virus.

No coronavirus deaths have been linked to the Omicron variant and travel bans won’t stop the virus from circulating, the global health body says. Getting vaccines into people’s arms will prevent the virus from mutating further, says the WHO.

5. 2021 AFCON: CAF rubbishes postponement claims

CAF has rubbished speculation that the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations may be moved away from Cameroon due to the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19. Cases of the Omicron variant are expected to be higher in the coming weeks and that has led to the United Kingdom placing several African countries on their travel red list. And speculation in the media claimed that the biennial football showpiece could be shifted, or at worst moved to 2022 FIFA World Cup hosts Qatar.

However, CAF director of communications Alex Siewe stated that allusion is false as the African football ruling body never discussed such possibilities. “We can’t keep spending time dealing with rumors,” Siewe said. Initially, Cameroon 2021 was originally billed to take place between June and July 2021, but that plan never materialized because of the disapproving climatic conditions during that time.
