@AFCON_2017 final: Cameroon topple Egypt to win Afcon; Egypt 1-2 Cameroon

Cameroon handed Egypt their first Africa Cup of Nations defeat in more than a decade to win the 2017 title with a 2-1 victory in the final in Libreville, Gabon, on Sunday night.
The Pharaohs – who were unbeaten in the Afcon finals since 2004 – took the lead in the first half through Mohamed Elneny, but second-half strikes from substitutes Nicolas N’Koulou and Vincent Aboubakar took the Indomitable Lions to their fifth African crown.
After a cagey opening, Egypt broke the deadlock midway through the first half when returning midfielder Mohamed Elneny scored with a shot from a tight angle which had the beating of goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoua at his near post.
Cameroon suffered another blow just after the half hour mark when influential defender Adolphe Teikeu succumbed to injury and had to be replaced by Nicolas N’Koulou.
Yet the Indomitable Lions ended the half as the stronger side, pushing Egypt back into their own half and causing a few nervy moments in the North Africans’ defen…

Forgive my sins – Kudalor to Ghanaians

The immediate past Inspector General of Police John Kudalor has called on Ghanaians to forgive him, if he offended anyone, in the line of duty.

I took such actions in my fervent hope to get a world class police service. To the good people of this country I want to thank you as to ho…

"I'm anti, can't no government handle a commando/ Your man don't want it, Trump's a b**** I'll make his whole brand go under," Eminem raps on the impassioned track that touches on issues like police brutality, the Flint water crisis, racism in America.

Kenyan doctors remove coin stuck in boy's throat for two weeks

A team of doctors at the Aga Khan Hospital in Mombasa have successfully removed a coin that got stuck in the throat of a 3-year-old boy for two weeks. The boy identified as Samson Kaingu was said to have swallowed the coin while playing with his friends at school in Bamburi. 
He lived with the coin for two weeks due to lack of medical services in public hospitals after doctors went on strike.

Fortunately, on Friday, February 3, 2017, a pediatric gastroenterologist led a team of doctors in removing the coin that had caused the boy sleepless nights.
According to Aga Khan Hospital acting Medical Director, Twahir Ahmed, he said the coin was removed through endoscopy, a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person's digestive tract using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it.
