Namibia’s Chanique Rabe took home the Miss Supranational title, sash, and prize of $35,000 cash at the global pageant’s finale in Poland on Saturday, August 21. Karla Guilfú Acevedo of Puerto Rico and SA’s own Thato Mosehle were named first and second runners-up respectively.

Although Mosehle was hoping to be the first South African to win the pageant, she’s still made history. The 26-year-old medical doctor is the first woman of color to represent Mzansi at the pageant, she is also the first to do so under the official Miss SA banner, and the first to make it into the Top 3.

4. Judges reject president’s appeal to change Kenya’s constitution

Appeal Court judges in Kenya have upheld an earlier decision by a lower court blocking a government-backed plan to make fundamental changes to the country’s constitution, calling the project “unconstitutional and unlawful.” Dubbed the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), the plan was spearheaded by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his political nemesis-turned-ally, Raila Odinga.

The judgement will be seen as a win for Deputy President William Ruto, who had opposed BBI. It also comes exactly a year before the next presidential election, which is regarded as a two-horse race between Mr Odinga and Mr Ruto.

5. Romelu Lukaku scores his first-ever Chelsea goal

Romelu Lukaku scored his first-ever Chelsea goal–almost a decade after his debut–as Thomas Tuchel’s team deservedly beat Arsenal. Lukaku, who was at Chelsea as a teenager, started at the Emirates after his £97.5m signing from Inter Milan and looks to have given the Blues an ominous new dimension.

His hold-up and link-up play caused Arsenal problems all day, and the Belgian duly gave them the lead. Lukaku was involved in the build-up and then finished the move from close range into an empty net from Reece James’ pass. The 28-year-old almost made it 3-0 but his header was tipped onto the bar by Bernd Leno.

It is only the third time Arsenal have lost their opening two Premier League matches in a season.
