I'm a teacher in a school with 17 teachers, about 12 teachers applied for school fees and none of us got anything. This must be cheap propaganda or something because l ve never seen one person who got this so called fees. Remember as teachers we interact. Some thing is definitely wrong here

What do i benefit from my labour if i no longer have school going children? The state seeks to promote inequality by paying fees for teacher's children. They should simply give ZWL$60 000 to every civil servant once per term.

Pay workers enough money for them to pay for their children at schools of their choice. Teachers also you love just flowing with the flow of the Zanoids filling endless forms paying to photocopy endless documentation requirements for a meagre 20 000, about US16 per term iwe ipapo the true fees you pay is way above that. Dont be used by these Zanoids fight for your labour rights and be paid a respectable salary not this school fees rubbish.

Malawi’s Ministry of Tourism has signed a sponsorship deal with the Spanish club Leganes.

The deal will see the “Malawi, The Warm Heart of Africa ” ​​logo visible on the front of the first team’s kits under the rotating ‘main sponsor’ strategy.

The strategy allows different companies to advertise their brands as the club’s “main sponsor” on a rotating basis.

A statement by the Spanish second-tier club reads: “CD Leganés has reached an agreement with the Ministry of Tourism of Malawi to join the rotating ‘main sponsor’ strategy carried out by the club, through which it allows companies from various sectors to have the opportunity to associate with the club and enjoy the notoriety that comes from being a ‘main sponsor’.

“In this way, the logo of “Malawi, The Warm Heart of Africa” will appear on the front of the first team’s kits during the upcoming matches, as well as on different media, both physical and digital. With this agreement, CD Leganés seeks to continue with its international brand expansion strategy.”

The Malawi brand will begin to appear on Leganés shirts in Sunday’s league match against Levante UD at the Butarque Municipal Stadium. Kick-off is at 3 pm CAT.

The deal is similar to that between Rwanda Tourism and Arsenal.

Other African institutes that are sponsoring European teams include Mukuru (Crystal Palace) and Hollywood Bets (Brentford).

Zimbabwe is set to miss several international tournaments this year due to the international ban imposed on ZIFA by FIFA.

The big games include the qualifying campaign for the 2023 Afcon and the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

The Afcon qualifiers are already underway and the Warriors’ disqualification was confirmed in June last year. The games will continue this year without the national team involved.

As for the 2026 World Cup, Zimbabwe face another disqualification if they fail to heed FIFA’s orders to allow the lifting of the sanctions.

The qualifiers are set to start later this year, likely after the end of the Afcon qualifiers.

The senior team could also miss the 2023 COSAFA Cup.

At the club level, no local team is playing in the CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup.

The 2022/23 interclub competitions will end in May before the new season starts in August/September.

Other tournaments the country will miss include the Women’s Champions League and the 2024 WAFCON qualifiers.

Zimbabwe will also be unable to play any friendly match due to the FIFA sanctions.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says he will remain at the club despite his side being hit with a 15-point deduction.

The Serie A giants were found guilty of fixing their balance sheets with artificial gains from club transfers.

The Italian Football Federation’s (FIGC) announced the sanction on Friday and also confirmed football bans for the side’s former sporting director Fabio Paratici, who is now Tottenham’s managing director of football, and ex-president Andrea Agnelli and Maurizio Arrivabene.

The point deduction saw Juve drop as low as 10th in Serie A.

Asked if the scandal will impact his future at the club, Allegri said: “I’m the coach of Juventus, and I will remain the coach of Juventus, unless they send me away.

“In difficult times, you have to be good, men, in taking responsibility. When things are going well, we are all good. I’m unable to analyze the severity of -15 in the table. The only thing certain is that we must accept yesterday’s ruling. I repeat: the club with the lawyers have already made the official statement. We have to be silent, very low profile, and do this challenge starting from 22 points.”

Meanwhile, Juventus have since announced that they will appeal against the FIGC’s decision.

In a statement released soon after the ruling, the club confirmed their next move, saying: “The Company awaits the publication of the reasons for the decision and announces as of now the bringing of an appeal to the Sport Guarantee Board (Collegio di Garanzia dello Sport) in accordance with the terms of the Sport Justice Code.”
