FHM: Bär munskydd i rusningstid: Folkhälsomyndigheten har nu tagit beslut om ett nytt allmänt råd om munskydd i kollektivtrafiken, uppger myndigheten på sin hemsida. Alla i Sverige som reser med kollektivtrafik rekommenderas att, där det inte går att hålla avstånd genom att boka plats, bära munskydd under följande tider på vardagar: 7-9 samt 16-18. "Det är mer effektivt att hålla avstånd än att befinna sig nära andra och ha munskydd", säger statsepidemiolog Anders Tegnell i ett uttalande på hemsidan. (Svt text December 30, 2020)
     

Swedish-born Ghanaian Jeffrey Aubynn-Obeng to be named Malmo FF assistant coach: Swedish-born Ghanaian Jeffrey Aubynn-Obeng has been linked with the assistant coaching job at top-flight side Malmo FF. According Kvällsposten, the 43-year-old has been tipped to deputise for head coach Jon Dahl Tomasson. Aubynn-Obeng has been working as head coach of the Malmö FF's U19 team. Born in Göteborg, he played 78 games for Malmo FF between 2008 and 2011. During his playing career, he has also represented Bayern Munich, Halmstad, Örgryte, Århus, Hammarby and Gais. But the Swedish newspapers report the Göteborg club, Ögryte, is after him as coach. The club has met with him but nothing has been decided. Aubynn-Obeng played a few games for the Swedish national team.

Isaac Hien signs for Djurgården: Djurgården förstärker försvaret med kraftfulla mittbacken Isak Hien. Närmast kommer han från Vasalunds IF där han var kraftigt bidragande till den överlägsna seriesegern i Ettan Norra där Vasalund vann 22 av de 30 matcherna. – Det här känns jättekul. Jag är född och uppvuxen här i Stockholm och jag vet ju hur stor förening Djurgården är. Jones Kusi Asare, som också är från Ghana, är en vän till familjen och han fixade biljetter till oss för att gå på match på Stadion. Det måste varit runt 2005-2006 då jag var sex-sju år gammal. Eftersom jag var så liten kommer jag inte ihåg exakt vilka Djurgården mötte men jag kommer ihåg att det var bra tryck på läktarna och jag fick dessutom min tröja signerad av DIF-spelarna. Sedan dess har det i princip varit en dröm att få spela i Djurgården. Isaac Hien has the same surname as someone we all know - the President of the Ghana Union in Stockholm!  
  GUSS congratulates Isaac Hien for making it to Djurgården. He follows Jones Kusi Asare, whose late father was a member of GUSS, in the Stockholm club.
     

Ghana’s election - Skirt and blouse: After a prayer, the Electoral Commission announced that Ghana’s president, Akufo-Addo, had won another four years. His supporters cheered in the streets. But his victory is far from comprehensive. Mr Akufo-Addo’s margin shrank and his party suffered heavy losses in the parliament. About 30 seats were flipped, leaving the house split almost evenly between the two major parties. The main opposition candidate rejected the result, alleging irregularities without providing evidence of any. Read The Economist's report on the Ghanaian elections...

Ghana goes to the polls today: Today, December 7, 2020, a total of 17,027,655 registered voters are expected to cast their ballot at about 33,367 polling stations across the country from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. As early as 4:30, lines started forming at some polling stations especially in the major cities. Senior citizens are given priority in the queues. Full covid protocols are expected to be observed but it looks like Ghanaians do not really take the covid scare seriously because of the low numbers of cases and deaths reported. The day has been declared a public holiday. It is all our hope that the elections will be violent free and whoever wins does so genuinely.
