South Africa have ended Pakistan’s record run of 11 straight T20 series victories with a narrow 7-run win at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

The result gave the Proteas an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series and saw Pakistan slip to defeat in a bilateral T20 series for the first time in three years.

South Africa defended its total of 188-3 after two thrilling final overs, when four Pakistan wickets fell and the tourists finished on 181-7.

Chris Morris took two wickets for South Africa in the penultimate over and Andile Phehlukwayo added two more in the last over.

First Quantum Minerals Launches Arbitration Against Zambian State Miner

Proceedings follow a criminal complaint made by ZCCM-IH against alleged unauthorized transfer of money

First Quantum begins arbitration proceedings against Zambian State Miner

First Quantum Minerals has begun arbitration proceedings against Zambian state miner ZCCM-IH to try to resolve a dispute. The dispute is over a money transfer to the parent company of Kansanshi Mining. The parent company is majority-owned by First Quantum Minerals, a Toronto-listed group.

The arbitration proceedings follow a criminal complaint made by state-owned ZCCM-IH against the alleged unauthorized transfer of money by Kansanshi Mining to First Quantum’s local subsidiary.

The state miner had launched action in October 2016 to sue First Quantum for $1.4 billion over claims that the Canadian company borrowed $2.3 billion from its Zambian copper mining subsidiary Kansanshi Mining Plc without informing ZCCM-IH, a minority shareholder.

The transfer in the latest case was made between Kansanshi Mining and Kansanshi Holdings. The Holding company is the Zambian registered vehicle through which First Quantum Minerals owns its majority stake. Kansanshi Mining is 80% owned by First Quantum and 20% owned by ZCCM-IH. 

Arbitration is expected to take place in London.

The Canadian miner has been embroiled in a dispute with the Zambian government after being handed a $5.8 billion bill for unpaid import duties last year.

Seven out of the 19 Miss Tourism Zimbabwe contestants who were in camp in preparation for the national finals scheduled to hold at Montclair Hotel in Nyanga this Saturday, have been injured in a bus accident that occurred in Vumba on Wednesday night.

The beauty contestants were on their way to Eden Lodge in Vumba where they were supposed to lodge for the night when the accident occurred around 9:00 pm along the Vumba-Mutare highway.

An eyewitness says the driver lost control of the bus when he wanted to negotiate a bend on the slippery road, causing the bus to overturn and land on its left side.

The models were immediately rushed to Murambi Garden hospital in three ambulances. They sustained injuries, but doctors say none is critical, and no death occurred. 

“The girls have been under observation at Murambi Garden hospital and all are stable. There are some injuries, but no death recorded. We’re now making arrangements to have the models transferred to Harare hospitals for further treatment,” One of the organisers said.

“We believe they were all affected, including those who are not physically hurt so they’re all in hospital under observation. It’s sad that such an unfortunate event transpired, however, we thank God because the accident was not fatal.” she continued.

A support team has been mobilized to go assist and take back the models to their respective provinces as the pageant has been postponed indefinitely.

Reigning Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi has been crowned Miss Universe 2019. The Beauty queen’s crowning as the 68th Miss Universe took place on Sunday, 8 December 2019 at the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Beautiful Tunzi was crowned by departing Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray as pageantry tradition demands. Tunzi is now the third South African to have been crowned Miss Universe. Others were Margaret Gardiner and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters who were crowned in 1978 and 2017 respectively.

Her crowning also launched the brand-new “Power of Unity” crown which is said to be worth about R73 million. 

The newly-crowned queen has come out to thank South Africans for the support they gave her during the pageantry. While speaking after her victory, the 26-year who hails from Tsolo, Sidwadweni in East Cape said:

“Ah, I’m so ecstatic. I think everyone is still waking up by the way. They are going to wake up to a storm of news. I don’t think I have ever had as much support as I did coming into the Miss South Africa crown and so I think this will be something extra and very special for everyone back at home.”

While one Twitter user who goes by the handle @Loisabels18 refers to the fact that Zozibini Tunzi was crowned by the immediate past Miss Universe from the Philippines who received her own crown from a former South African Miss Universe, another user tweeted “…Nothing could ever beat natural African beauty.”
