3. Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp hit by global outage

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp went offline for users across the globe, the social media giant said on Monday, October 4, as it worked on restoring its services. The error message on the webpage of Facebook Inc suggested a problem with Domain Name System (DNS). DNS allows web addresses to take users to their destinations. A similar outage at cloud company, Akamai Technologies Inc, took down multiple websites in July.

Facebook acknowledged users were having trouble accessing its apps but did not provide any specifics about the nature of the problem or how many were affected by the outage. “We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience,” Facebook said.

4. Ethiopia PM Abiy Ahmed takes oath for new term

Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has just been sworn in. The ceremony in parliament comes after his party won a landslide victory in June’s elections. The vote, which was boycotted by some parties, took place in the background of the conflict in the North.

Ethiopia’s Addis Standard newspaper tweeted a photo of the prime minister taking the oath of office. Mr. Abiy was first appointed prime minister in 2018 by the then governing EPRDF coalition following antigovernmental protests.

He then went on to form the Prosperity Party in 2019, which included most of the coalition’s parties, but significantly not the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). The civil war is now between federal forces and the TPLF.

Dominic Solanke has been nominated for Bournemouth Player of the Month award for September. The Nigeria prospect will compete with Zimbabwe international Jordan Zemura, Gary Cahill, and Mark Travers for the individual accolade.

In the month under review, 24-year-old Solanke contributed three goals [against Barnsley, Queens Park Rangers and Luton Town] as Scott Parker’s Cherries went unbeaten in all matches played. Zemura won the accolade for August and is in line to win the prize back-to-back.

Completing the list is goalkeeper Travers who conceded just three goals last month. Following his imposing performance in goal, the Ireland international has now conceded less than a goal per game in the 2021-22 campaign.
