Ugandan Television Personality Anne Taylor Apologizes and Dismisses Separation Rumors from SB4

In a surprising turn of events, popular Ugandan television personality Anne Taylor, also known as Anna Kyamulabi Mayanja, took to YouTube to issue a heartfelt apology and dismiss her separation from SB4, her partner. In a video shot over a lavish meal, Anne, visibly distressed, blamed her recent breakdown on stress and clarified that SB4 had no involvement in the controversial content she had written. The emotional video sought redemption as Anne acknowledged her own struggles during a challenging period. In a subsequent interview, Anne confirmed the separation but chose to keep the details private. When questioned by media personality Ruth Kalibbala Bwanika about rumors surrounding the couple's breakup, Anne stated, "Let's leave things the way they are. I won't talk about that. I won't say anything about it. But what you saw is what it is." However, in a recent video posted on SB4's channel, Anne expressed remorse for causing a stir, though she admitted to still being in a somber mood. SB4, in a surprising response, declared that he harbored no ill feelings towards Anne and criticized those who celebrated their breakup. "How could I ever be mad at you, with all the time we have been together?" said SB4 in the video. "I was surprised at how people hate it when other people are doing well; they don't want to see other people in love." Anne Taylor introduced SB4 to her parents in 2020, marking a significant step in their relationship. In 2022, she left her eight-year stint at Bukedde TV to join Sanyuka TV. SB4, whose real name is not provided, is recognized for his YouTube channel, SB4 Media, where he shares human interest stories and has played a role in propelling many individuals into the limelight. As the public follows this unfolding story, the couple's journey is seen not just as a breakup but as a reflection of the challenges faced by public figures in maintaining personal relationships under the scrutiny of the online world.

Tragedy Strikes in Venezuela: Open Pit Mine Collapse Leaving Dozens Buried in Mud.

The wall of an open pit mine in central Venezuela collapsed on Tuesday, reportedly leaving dozens of workers trapped under mud and sparking a frantic rescue effort. Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional cited Edgar Colina Reyes, the government security secretary for Bolivar, the nearest city to the mine in the town of La Paragua, as confirming the accident, but his office had provided no further detail as of Tuesday evening. CNN's Spanish language service quoted local mayor Yorgi Arciniega as saying at least 30 people were killed in the collapse, with about 100 more buried, but there was no immediate confirmation of that toll from national officials. The AFP news agency quoted Reyes as saying there were only two confirmed deaths and two injuries, but he noted that officials were still "evaluating the damage and doing a rescue analysis." The newspaper, and regional outlet Correo del Caroni, said Reyes was heading for the Bulla Loca mine Wednesday morning to assess the situation. The newspapers both quoted a local journalist as saying the mine wall that collapsed was approximately 115 feet tall. Photos posted to social media from the scene showed a large, open pit of clay-colored mud, with workers and others racing to help people injured or trapped by the apparent landslide. Iron ore, gold, bauxite and other minerals are extracted from mines across the Venezuelan state of Bolivar, including many unsanctioned sites. The last major accident in the region, according to Correo del Caroni, was only a couple months ago in the Gran Sabana district. At least 12 people were reportedly killed in that incident, which came only a month after a previous accident at the same mine that did not result in any deaths, according to the newspaper. Local journalist Fritz Sanchez was sharing images and information from the Bulla Loca mine on his social media accounts Tuesday. "What we were warned of this past December has happened today," he said in one post. "They tell me of a collapse in the Bulla Local mine, which has left more than 100 people buried." He indicated the pit may have been an illegal gold mining operation, but there was no information immediately available from Venezuelan authorities to confirm the nature of the site or the number of people trapped or injured. Human rights groups have previously voiced serious concern over the number of children working in Venezuela's open gold mines. Source - CBS News

Zambia to Take Home US$700,000 for finishing third in Group F at AFCON.

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) will receive US$700,000 (more than K18 million) from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for the Chipolopolo’s third-place finish in Group F of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast. Avram Grant’s side was knocked out of the competition in the group stage after drawing one-all against DR Congo and Tanzania. The 2012 AFCON champions then lost 1-0 to Morocco on Matchday 3. The two points accumulated by Zambia, who occupied third place in Group F, were not enough for them to advance to the Round of 16, with Ivory Coast progressing to the next round as the fourth-best third-placed table. The Black Stars of Ghana and Zambia are the only sides that will receive US$700,000 for finishing in third place in their respective groups but falling short of points to advance to the Round of 16. The six teams, including Tanzania, Algeria, and Mozambique, that finished fourth across all the groups will each receive US$500,000 from the football governing body. For teams such as Egypt, Namibia, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Morocco, Cameroon, Mauritania, and Equatorial Guinea, that were booted out in the Round of 16, their associations will each be given US$800,000. The 2023 AFCON has officially advanced to the quarterfinals. All teams in the last eight are guaranteed US$1.3 million. The four teams that falter at this stage will each take home US$1.3 million, while the semi-finals promise to almost double what is on offer at this stage. Teams that advance to the semifinals will be assured of receiving US$2.5 million, with the winners of the competition getting US$7 million, while the losing finalist will pocket US$4 million.
