Cameron Bows Out As UK Prime Minister

David Cameron said being prime minister had been “the greatest honour” of his life as he prepared to formally resign. Flanked by his wife and children in Downing Street, he said the UK was “much stronger” than when he took over. He then went to Buckingham Palace to tender his resignation to the Queen, who will then formally appoint Theresa May as his replacement.

Earlier Mr Cameron took PMQs for the final time, telling MPs he would “miss the roar of the crowd”. After taking office, Mrs May, the home secretary, will set about naming her own frontbench team. Before driving to Buckingham Palace, Mr Cameron spoke outside No 10, saying he had “not got every decision right” but adding: “I do believe that today, our country is much stronger.” “Politicians like to talk about policies, but in the end it’s about people’s lives,” he said, pointing to the government’s record on employment, the NHS and defence.

He wished Mrs May well, saying she would provide “strong and stable leader…

Being Abedi's son is difficult – Ayew

Deputy captain of the Ghana Black Stars André Morgan Rami Ayew has revealed that growing up as the son of football legend Abedi ‘Pele’ Ayew was a very difficult task.

According to the former Marseille attacker, dealing with the pressures and the comparisons with his father’s playing style had a toll on him, but through persistence and determination, he has managed to convince Ghanaians with his own playing style.

“When I was young it put a lot of pressure on me because everybody was expecting me to do more or be like him [Abedi] but we are two different people and I had to do nice styles and play football my way and it wasn’t easy because anything you do people say you are here because of your dad, it was very difficult,” Ayew told Bola Ray on Starr Chat Wednesday.

Ayew added: “I am very happy and grateful today that Ghanaians have realized that I have worked hard and I am my own Andre Ayew.”

The Swansea dynamo, however, told Bola Ray that despite the immense pressure to liv…

I can now listen to radio - Otumfuo tells Abusua FM’s Kwame Adinkra

Overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has said that he will start listening to radio again because renowned broadcaster Luther King Kwame Adinkra, is back in the Ashanti region.

The Ashanti King, who is an ardent listener of the celebrated morning show host, urged the media to transform society and desist from ‘loud talk’ which does not impact positively on society.

He counseled EIB Network, owners of Abusua 96.5 FM, on which Adinkra started hosting Abusua Nkomo on Monday, to use its numerous platforms to educate the public more on the electoral processes to deepen the country’s democracy.

“Most at times voters do not mandate candidates based on their competence but on their nice looks on the ballot paper. It is for this reason that you need to educate the populace to have a clear understanding of who they may be voting for at the polls,” he observed.

Otumfuo made the call when Adinkra paid a courtesy call on him on Wednesday.


Montie FM suspends ‘Mugabe’

The radio presenter who was in-charge of affairs when threats were issued on the lives of judges in the country on Montie FM has been suspended by the station.

Salifu Maase, popularly known as Mugabe, claimed in his affidavit to the Supreme Court that his appointment was suspended on July 4, after the infamous commentary was made by the two panelists on the show.

In the affidavit leaked by the Daily Guide newspaper, ‘Mugabe’ admitted that he is an employee of Montie FM “But my appointment with the station was suspended on 4th July, 2016 until further notice due to the matters giving rise to the application herein”.

He said he did not encourage the two panelists to threaten judges.

“I took part and participated in a programme on Montie FM on the said days but I deny threatening to kill Supreme Court and High Court justices because I was not happy with the orders directing the Electoral Commission to furnish this honourable court with the list of NHIS card holders.

Nursing Trust Fund threatens to sue Registered Nurses Assoc.

The Nursing Trust Fund has threatened to sue the Ghana Registered Nurses Association for defamation.

The executives of the voluntary welfare organization for nurses are incensed about a statement from the Registered Nurses Association describing their group as fraudulent.

They have also planned to demonstrate against the Registered Nurses Association and expose what they call its inefficiencies and corrupt deals.

Spokesperson for the group Malcom Asamoah told Starr News they feel disrespected by the Registered Nurses Association.

“We find this accusation as wrong and that it is just a way of tarnishing our image, so we are very much upset. We have given them two weeks to apologise or we go to court for the court to determine if we are an illegitimate organisation,” he said.
