This year, she decided to seal the deal with a new Porsche, which was delivered to her a week before her birthday. “I got myself a Porsche as a birthday present, it’s exciting, and a lot of people don’t know about it, only my close friends,” she said excitedly.
4. Four dead during protest over opposition leader‘s arrest in Senegal
On Friday, the Senegal government vowed to use “all means necessary” to return the order after police fired tear gas in clashes with supporters of opposition leader Ousmane Sonko. The interior minister later revealed that four people had died in the clash, followed after a court ruled that Sonko should be held in custody. This led to two days of protests with the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urging all sides to avoid any further escalation of the violence.
Earlier in Dakar’s working-class district of Medina, hundreds of young people fought with the riot police on the streets as smoke rose from burning tires at makeshift barricades in the capital city. Protesters chanted “Free Sonko” on the streets as the protests took place.
5. Oscar targets ambitious Chelsea return four years later from £60m move to China
