When asked by Lasizwe if she would have kids with her ex-boyfriend, Bandile Mbere of Major League DJz or her current boyfriend Vic Mensa, Nadia said that they had broken up. “I’d have to say Vic, definitely Vic Mensa,” when asked how long they were dating, Nadia replied saying: “We broke up, but it’s fine, it doesn’t matter.”

4. Zambian President Hichilema inherits ’empty treasury’

Zambia’s new president has told the media that he has inherited an “empty” treasury, while “horrifying” amounts of money had been stolen. “People are still trying to make last-minute movements of funds, which are unauthorized, which are not theirs,” President Hakainde Hichilema said.

He defeated his rival Edgar Lungu in presidential elections last month. President Hichilema did not name any officials. Mr Lungu governed the copper-rich nation since 2015. He was widely praised for the smooth transition of power to Mr Hichilema, who won the presidency after five failed attempts.

Cristiano Ronaldo broke the world record for goals scored in men’s international football as he hit his 110th and 111th goals for Portugal in their dramatic 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over the Republic of Ireland. The 36-year-old scored two late headers–to break and extend the record–after he had a penalty saved by Gavin Bazunu.

Ali Daei, who scored 109 goals for Iran between 1993 and 2006, held the record which Ronaldo equaled with a double against France at Euro 2020. The Manchester United forward has also equaled Sergio Ramos’ European record for men’s caps–with his 180th Portugal appearance. Netflix Swallow trailer
