    Akwenye relief as court stops auctionAkwenye relief as court stops auction The nasty public spat between businessman Nelson Akwenye and his celebrity wife Ilke, made a turn in the High Court in Windhoek yesterday as he sought to interdict her from selling cars and properties registered in her name, but which he is paying for.

    Akwenye and Ferusa Capital brought the urgent application against his wife Ilke, Squirrel Investments Twenty (Pty) Limited, Namagri Properties and Aucor Namibia.

    Akwenye, a former Brave Warriors, Tigers and Civics footballer, got an interim order restraining his estranged wife from selling two erven in Auasblick, 431 and 296, as well as her shareholding in Squirrel Investments, and another property, Erf 288 in Evelyn Street, Windhoek.

    He also succeeded in preventing her from auctioning off a luxury, customised Mercedes Benz G Wagon, a Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evogue, an Isuzu bakkie and another property at Erf 857 in Kleine Kuppe's Extension 1 in Windhoek.

    In fact the auction had started and the hammer had already fallen on three luxury vehicles.

    The G Wagon was 'sold' for N$1.7 million, while the Range Rover Evogue went for N$690 000.

    The Range Rover Sport went under the gavel for N$580 000.

    Ilke has until Valentine's Day to give reasons why the interim order should not be made final.

    Ferusa Capital CC, the second applicant in the matter, specifically related to the property in Kleine Kuppe, wants the property to be registered in its name.

    The property is registered in Ilke's name, under Squirrel Investments.

    Akwenye, in his affidavit, said he paid so that Ferusa Capital could settle the loan in full in the amount of N$1.6 million on 16 July 2016 and also paid for the development of the property to the tune of N$3.15 million.

    The company also provided this property as unencumbered security to the SME Bank for the loan in the amount of N$7 million which was granted.

    “Therefore the applicant seeks an order transferring the asset into their names,” Akwenye argued.

    He added that the order will be sought against the backdrop of him releasing the wife from any liability which she incurred by virtue of her role as her husband's nominee.

    The two were married in March 2014 out of community of property and they are currently estranged.

    Akwenye says Ilke accused him of domestic violence after posting images of the alleged abuse on her social media profiles and successfully obtained a protection order on 10 November 2017.

    “I have appealed the protection order and also launched a review application,” he told the court.

    He admitted that the marriage had broken down irrevocably and that his wife has indicated, though he is not yet served with a summons or notification of the action that she is in the process of instituting divorce proceedings.

    During the marriage he says he was and continues to be an entrepreneur involved in several business ventures to which there is a fair amount of risk.

    “To protect our core asset holdings from any risk of possible future failures, we agreed that our properties and vehicles be registered in her name. However, I would be the beneficial owner and she would essentially be my nominee,” he explained.

    He told the court he paid all monthly instalments in respect of the various assets and that she was in no way able to sustain the monthly financial obligation.

    “As such, I would make sure that I directly pay the financial institutions or provided her with sufficient funds in order to do so,” he said.

    In terms of Erf 228 in Evelyn Street, his wife purchased it as his nominee and it was financed through Standard Bank with a total loan liability of N$582 708. Since 14 October 2014, Akwenye said, he paid N$180 724 on that loan and N$210 000 is still outstanding.

    He told the court that on the Kleine Kuppe property, he had paid the initial deposit of N$1.2 million and the remainder of the N$5 million purchase price was financed through Standard Bank in the amount of N$3.8 million.

    During October 2015 until October 2017 he made payments of N$639 726 into that loan and spent additional N$309 460 on improvements on the property.

    The payments are seemingly in arrears and Standard Bank has foreclosed.

    He is the registered owner of Range Rover Sport and the outstanding amount owed to Bank Windhoek in respect of the vehicle is N$651 107.

    Akwenye further said he is the registered owner of a Range Rover Evogue which was purchased in August 2014 and he had paid N$240 000 together with additional amount of N$67 029 for extras.

    The outstanding balance owed is N$536 551.

    The Isuzu bakkie was purchased through Standard Bank by his estranged wife acting as his nominee in May 2014 and he paid the deposit of N$37 000.

    He also paid instalments from May 2014 to November 2017 in the amount of N$260 241. Akwenye added that as at November the outstanding balance was N$217 683.

  • 02/01/18--23:33: Twist in fuel price
  • Twist in fuel priceTwist in fuel price Fuel prices in Namibia will remain unchanged this month, but fuel tax will be hiked by 60%.
    Mines and energy minister Obeth Kandjoze issued a statement this morning, saying additional revenue for government need to be generated. As such, fuel tax will increase from 25c/l to 40c/l effective 7 February.
    To avoid a subsequent increase in fuel price in February, prices were therefore effectively decreased by 15c/l, he said.

     Govt announces cost-cutting measures Govt announces cost-cutting measures The Office of the Prime Minister has announced a number of cost-cutting measures for the public sector in line with its intention to cut spending on unnecessary expenditure. The administrative directive signed off by Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila comes barely three days after President Hage Geingob banned political office-bearers from travelling outside the country this month. Subsequent to Geingob’s announcement, a number of cost-cutting measures have now been made public, with government limiting air travel in business class only for long-haul flights to qualifying officials. Permanent secretaries will now also have to get approval from the secretary to cabinet and line minister before going on official trips. “Travel abroad by a delegation should not exceed two staff members. Any delegation with more than two staff members requires special consideration by the secretary to cabinet in consultation with the minister,” read the directive. “If applicable, local and international travel by an individual staff member shall be capped, and shall not exceed two trips outside the country per year and three trips within the country. Exceptions shall be considered and approved by the permanent secretaries/accounting officers on merit.” According to the new measures, no office, ministry or government agency may buy new vehicles unless approved by the secretary to cabinet. “Government vehicles must be parked at 17:00 at the office or officially designated parking place. Assigning of vehicles for official use after hours to individual staff members shall only be done for essential services.” Permanent secretaries will now also have discretionary powers to determine the most suitable and economic rate for daily subsistence allowance for each official travel. “Permanent secretaries shall decide on whether to pay directly to the accommodation establishment or to the staff member, whichever is the most economical option.” Government has also announced that it will limit participation at trade fairs. “Participation by OMAs at various trade fairs should be restricted and limited to trade fairs adding significant value to the performance of the respective institution. Participation in trade fairs should be limited to staff members where the OMA has offices in those regions.”

  • 02/04/18--14:00: Naidjala fully fit
  • Naidjala fully fitNaidjala fully fitAwaits redemption Immanuel 'Prince' has been busy preparing for a big bantamweight title fight slated for this month. Former WBO Africa bantamweight champion Immanuel 'Prince' Naidjala has reached full fitness ahead of his Commonwealth title fight.

    The boxer will come up against Jason 'the smooth one' Moloney in Australia on 24 February.

    Naidjala and Moloney will battle for the prestigious WBO Bantamweight Commonwealth title.

    The fight will take place at St Kilda City stadium in Melbourne Australia.

    Moloney will defend his WBA Oceania Bantamweight title and will also be challenging for the coveted Commonwealth title.

    “I have been working very hard in the gym and I can feel that my body is now fully fit.

    “This fight means everything to me, because it is about my redemption.

    “My training has gone well so far and I am proud of the amount of fitness I have gained in short period of time,” Naidjala said.

    The boxer lost out on two top titles in December and is fortunate to get another chance at the beginning of the year.

    Moloney is now undefeated in 15 fights, with an excellent knockout record of 15 KOs, while Naidjala comes in more experienced with 23 fights, four losses and one draw (13 KOs).

    “It is not easy when you lose a fight, because it kills a person's morale, but I am strong because I have managed to pick myself up from all the defeats.

    “It is about time I redeem myself by winning this Commonwealth title, because not everyone is so lucky to get a chance like this.”

    Newspaper Cup to feature netballNewspaper Cup to feature netball The Namibian Newspaper Cup will, for the first time, feature netball.

    In a Wednesday media release from Netball Namibia (NN), all 14 regions have been advised to select 12 players, who will participate in the tournament, which takes place in Katima Mulilo over the Easter Weekend.

    “Players must be born on or before 31 December 1999,” the statement which is signed by Lydia Mutenda, the president of Netball Namibia, said. Certified copies of players' full birth certificate, identity document or passport with two colour photos will be required.

    NN, which is recognised by Africa Netball and the International Netball Board, has also scheduled various other activities to run concurrently with the games.

    These include a general meeting, an umpires' workshop, coaching clinic and team managers meeting on 29 March.

    The netball tournament, which is supported by Nedbank Namibia, will see the winning region walking away with N$25 000, a floating trophy and 17 gold medals, while the runners' up will win N$12 500 and 17 silver medals.

    The team that finishes third will walk away with N$6 250 and 17 medals, while the fourth team will receive N$3 125.

    Speaking to Nampa, NN general-secretary Imelda Nerongo confirmed that netball will be part of this year's tournament, saying it was a long overdue development.

    Netball was supposed to feature in last year's tournament, but due to the late finalisation of the agreement, that could not happen.

    “It is a very important development because this is grassroots development. We always had a problem with integration from junior to senior level. Now we have an opportunity to keep the players engaged after they are done with school,” Nerongo said.

    She added that they will use the tournament to pre-select players who will participate in the World Cup qualifiers for the Netball World Youth Cup scheduled for Fiji in 2021.

  • 02/04/18--14:00: Catholic crackdown in DRC
  • Catholic crackdown in DRCCatholic crackdown in DRC Police “kidnapped” a Catholic priest on Saturday after mass in Kinshasa, witnesses said, amid spiralling tensions between the church and the Democratic Republic of Congo's government over the president's refusal to step down.

    “Father Sebastien was taken away by police just after morning mass,” a nun of the Saint-Robert parish told AFP in N'sele on the eastern outskirts of the capital.

    A police vehicle drew up outside the church, officers jumped out and “started to beat the priest,” said another nun who had also witnessed the incident.

    “They threw him in the jeep and drove off with him,” she said, adding that an unidentified man “filmed the priest” on his mobile phone during mass.

    Police refused to comment on the incident when contacted by AFP.

    Priest Sebastien Yebo has worked for the parish since August 2017.

    The incident comes after a deadly crackdown by the government on Catholic-organised protests against President Joseph Kabila.

    At least 15 people have been killed in clashes with security forces at rallies on December 31 and January 21, according to the UN peacekeeping mission Monusco.

    Kabila, 46, has been in power since 2001, at the helm of a regime widely criticised for corruption, repression and incompetence.

    His constitutional term in office expired in December 2016, but he has stayed on, stoking a bloody spiral of violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

    Under a deal brokered by the powerful Catholic Church, he was allowed to stay in office, provided new elections were held in 2017.

    The authorities then postponed the election until December 23 this year, citing what they said were logistical problems in preparing for the vote.

    The delay, coupled with the mounting violence, has placed Kabila on collision course with the church, which has a prominent role in the DRC, due to its educational and social care work.

  • 02/04/18--14:00: Kenyan crackdown continues
  • Kenyan crackdown continuesKenyan crackdown continuesThird opposition leader arrested Following the swearing– in of Raila Odinga as the people's president last week, Kenyatta's government has started to 'clean up'. Kenyan police on Saturday briefly detained another key government critic over his alleged involvement in the recent mock inauguration of opposition leader Raila Odinga as the “people's president”, the third such arrest within four days.

    Police said they arrested George Aladwa at his home early on Saturday morning, before releasing him several hours later after questioning.

    Aladwa is accused of helping to organise the 30 January symbolic swearing-in in Nairobi in front of tens of thousands of supporters, in a fresh challenge to President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election last year.

    Police said Aladwa, who was arrested at his home on Saturday morning, was also being questioned over his role in a shooting Wednesday at the home of Odinga's running-mate, Kalonzo Musyoka.

    “Aladwa is being investigated over what happened at Kalonzo's home. He is also being questioned over the chaos in (Nairobi) where he mobilised youths,” police spokesman Charles Owino told AFP.

    Kenyatta's victory in a re-run vote in October has sparked deadly clashes and polarised the country.

    The government has denounced Odinga for trying to “overthrow” Kenyatta, while the opposition claims the election process was rigged and the result illegitimate.

    At least 92 people have died in recent months, with most protesters killed at the hands of security forces, according to rights groups.

    Aladwa's detention follows the separate arrests this week of opposition firebrand Miguna Miguna and of lawyer TJ Kajwang for their alleged key roles in Odinga's swearing-in.

    The government also blocked three major TV channels to stop them from broadcasting the Tuesday's “swearing-in”.

    The stations remained off air Saturday, despite a court order issued Thursday to end the suspensions.

    Police have also ignored a judge's ruling to release Miguna ahead of his court appearance, scheduled for Monday.

    “Tension is building up and it is just a matter of time before it explodes,” the Daily Nation newspaper wrote in an editorial Saturday.

    “It is absurd that Mr Odinga and his coalition members have chosen the path of confrontation... but the government's reaction is equally revolting,” according to the paper.

    The United Nations and the US have denounced the Kenyan government's crackdown.

    But Odinga's inauguration has also alienated him from the international community, with Western diplomats saying they were not in contact with him.

    International calls for dialogue between the two sides have for months been ignored by both the government and opposition.

  • 02/04/18--14:00: Ramirez dominates Ahmed
  • Ramirez dominates AhmedRamirez dominates Ahmed Mexican champion Gilberto Ramirez easily retained his World Boxing Organisation super middleweight title, dominating challenger Habib Ahmed in a one-sided main event on Saturday.

    Ahmed's corner mercifully threw in the towel with 29 seconds left in the sixth round as their fighter was unable to fight back while being overwhelmed with body and head shots.

    The bout was the feature fight on a card that also saw Filipino Jerwin Ancajas make an impressive American debut with a 10th round knockout of Israel Gonzalez to keep his IBF super flyweight belt.

    The southpaw Ramirez improved to 37-0 with 25 KOs as he defended his 76kg title for the third time since winning it from Arthur Abraham in 2016.

    Ramirez said he was pleased to get his first win by a knockout in three years.

    “This fight was really important,” Ramirez said. “We have been training for a knockout and we got it.

    “I never felt frustrated. I kept moving forward at him and tried to hit the body.”

    Ramirez suffered a cut above his left eye in the third round from an accidental head butt. His corner did a good job of closing the wound so it didn't bother him for the final three rounds.

    He came dangerously close to knocking Ahmed out in the fifth round, connecting on separate occasions with an overhand right, right hook and a driving right jab before the challenger was saved by the bell.

    Heading into the final round, Ramirez had landed a total of 90 punches to just 24 for the heavy underdog Ahmed, who was fighting for the first time out of his home country.

    He was ranked fourth in the division despite almost 70% of his previous wins coming against boxers with losing records.

    Ramirez already holds the distinction of being the first fighter from Mexico to win a title in the 76kg division and now he's setting his sights on unifying the different titles.

    “Next I would like to fight with another champion from Europe or England for a unification.

    “I want to be the best division pound for pound fighter.”

  • 02/04/18--14:00: US downs Argentina
  • US downs ArgentinaUS downs Argentina The United States launched their defence of the Americas Rugby Championship with a dramatic 17-10 triumph over Argentina XV on Saturday at StubHub Centre in Los Angeles.

    The contest went down to the wire, as a last-gasp attack from Argentina saw Rodrigo Bruni cross the line only to knock on.

    Juan Cappiello was shown yellow in just the seventh minute for a late tackle on Marcel Brache.

    Will Magie couldn't connect on the penalty, but landed his second attempt to put the Americans up 3-0.

    Argentina fought their way back into it with a penalty from Juan Cruz Gonzalez and a try from Santiago Montagner who powered over with the man advantage with Cam Dolan in the sin bin.

    The conversion was good to put Argentina up 10-3 at halftime, but the hosts dominated after the break.

    Magie closed the gap with his second penalty and the Eagles got a try as Tony Lamborn ripped through two defenders to sweep around the corner and regain the lead for the United States.

    With both teams looking to their replacements, former England under-20 fly-half Will Hooley came on for Magie to make his first appearance in an Eagles jersey and slotted two penalties to make it 17-10.

    A desperate Argentina looked to have produced the try they needed, but Bruni lost possession of the ball before the grounding and upon video review the try was waved off.

    In the day's other match, Brazil edged Chile 16-14 in Santiago, their first victory ever on Chilean soil.

    Jardel Vettorado dived over for a try for Brazil and Josh Reeves contributed the conversion and three penalties as Brazil posted their first away win in ARC play.

    The tournament continues next weekend, when Brazil host Uruguay at Sao Paulo, Argentina XV host Chile at Ushuaia and the United States host Canada in Sacramento, California.

  • 02/04/18--14:00: Guardiola defends sub snub
  • Guardiola defends sub snubGuardiola defends sub snubCity injury crisis The City manager visited Turf Moor without seven injured players on Saturday and has recently complained that referees are not offering his players enough protection. Pep Guardiola defended his decision to name only six substitutes for Manchester City's 1-1 Premier League draw at Burnley, claiming that he did not have enough players to fill his bench despite boasting the Premier League's most expensive squad.

    City also had a late pursuit of Leicester's Riyad Mahrez rebuffed by the Foxes before Wednesday's transfer deadline.

    But Guardiola insisted that an elite development squad fixture on Friday evening was also a key factor behind his decision, as he did not want to withdraw any of his youngsters from that game to travel with the first team.

    “We didn't have any players,” said Guardiola.

    “They are injured.

    “I'd like to have 18 players and could have called on one of the second team, but they played yesterday. Others were injured.

    “We decided not to bring someone onto the bench who played last night, because they wouldn't have played. We will see at Leicester (on Saturday) how many are coming back.”

    However, Guardiola's selection drew widespread criticism, particularly from television pundit and former Manchester United star Gary Neville who described the decision as a “joke”.

    Even without a series of key players ,including David Silva, Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus, City looked well on course for victory after Danilo's stunning 22nd minute opener.

    However, Guardiola's men missed a catalogue of chances in the second half, the worst of which saw England forward Raheem Sterling miss a straightforward tap-in before he was substituted two minutes later.

    And that error was punished after 82 minutes when Johann Berg Gudmundsson volleyed in a spectacular equaliser.

    “That's football, the next time he will score,” said Guardiola, who claimed that his substitution of Sterling was unrelated to his miss.

    “Today there was one chance and that can happen. We will focus on the next day, focus on improving to become a stronger team. That happens.

    “There were a lot of chances when we were there waiting for the last pass, or shot. Of course we are sad to drop two points but to come here and play as we did is almost impossible.”

    The draw at Turf Moor came 24 hours after Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho appeared to already concede the title race to Guardiola.

    The Catalan had dismissed Mourinho's “surrender” on the eve of the game claiming that, with 13 games remaining, there was still plenty of football left to be played.

    And the City manager insisted that complacency wasn't City's problem on Saturday.

    “Believe me the team was focused,” said Guardiola. “You don't play as we did without that.

    “Jose said what he did, I said what I did. You can believe which one. There are still 36 points to play for. A lot will happen.

    “Today we had 15 players and one goalkeeper. Football is unpredictable - you saw what happened today. We played amazing football, and I don't have regrets.

    “Today was one of the best performances we have had this season by far. We controlled many, many situations. That's why I am optimistic that (we) can keep going at this level.”

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche has not seen his team win in nine league games but took pride in a performance against a side he fully expects to win the league.

    “They had an unbelievable miss and that changed the feeling in the stadium and our quality was on show with a fantastic goal,” said Dyche.

    “But they're the best side in the division, the best squad in the division and, overall, they showed the quality they've got. Anyone would take a point against them.”

    Ferrari turns to hybrids, SUVs to double profits by 2022Ferrari turns to hybrids, SUVs to double profits by 2022 Sportscar maker Ferrari is looking to double core earnings to €2 billion (U$2.5 billion) by no later than 2022 and become debt free a year earlier, betting on firm demand for supercars and new launches, including hybrids and an SUV.

    CEO Sergio Marchionne does not expect to double deliveries, but aims to keep pushing technological boundaries, launch new special editions and expand a customisation programme to drive profit margins, which stood at 30 percent last year.

    Ferrari is also expanding its product range to vehicles that appeal to a larger demographic. Hybrids will be part of the portfolio from 2019, and an SUV is expected to be launched by late 2020.

    Downsizing engines was a possibility in future as long as Ferrari's uniqueness is preserved, Marchionne said.

    "We are absolutely convinced that these numbers are doable," Marchionne told analysts on a conference call, adding that profit margins could rise to at least 36 percent by 2022. "The house is firing on all cylinders, we are in a good place."

    The Italian group's medium-term outlook helped push its shares up more than 8 percent at one point on Thursday. They closed 7.5 percent higher at €103.2. Ferrari's forecast suggests an average annual core earnings growth of 14.1 percent, or 17.9 percent, if it achieves the target a year early, said George Galliers, an analyst at Evercore ISI.

    "This type of earnings growth is unlikely to be seen by any other automotive OEM over the coming five years," Galliers said.


    However, he said the stock was not cheap and it remained to be seen if projected growth would be enough to attract investors over the coming months.

    After being spun-off from Fiat Chrysler two years ago, Ferrari has sought to show it can increase profits without the backing of its parent. The group has clocked up several years of record earnings, helped by a number of special edition models.

    Ferrari reported on Thursday an 18 percent rise in 2017 adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) to €1.04 billion, in line with analysts' expectations and helped by sales of its 12-cylinder models. They include the GTC4Lusso and the 812 Superfast, the company's most powerful model to date.

    For this year, Ferrari forecasts an adjusted EBITDA of at least €1.1 billion and shipments above 9,000 vehicles, up from 8 398 vehicles in 2017.

    Marchionne sees no impact from currency fluctuations, saying Ferrari was strong enough to set its own pricing.

    All future models will come out of Ferrari's home base in Maranello, Italy, although new shifts will be added. Capital expenditures will stand at around €550 million for the "next couple of years", Marchionne said.

    The 65-year-old executive, who is set to leave the company in 2021, has long said Ferrari was approaching the limit of the number of cars it can produce from its current range without weakening their exclusive appeal, and needed to look beyond.

    But any push into new territory - like the planned SUV - would happen on Ferrari's terms to protect the brand's strength. Marchionne has sought to alleviate fears by saying any utility vehicle with the prancing horse logo would be "Ferrari style" for "the selected few" and its claim to fame would not be "being able to climb rocks".

    Equally, if a true all-electric powered supercar is ever made, it will come from the Ferrari house, Marchionne said.

    "Whenever Ferrari does express itself in a fully electric vehicle, it will do so by making sure that both sound and handling are reflective of Ferrari's heritage," he said.

    What is already on the market "falls substantially short of that". – Nampa/Reuters

  • 02/04/18--14:00: Gassiev knocks out Dorticos
  • Gassiev knocks out DorticosGassiev knocks out Dorticos Russia's Murat Gassiev retained his IBF cruiserweight belt and grabbed the WBA cruiserweight title, with a technical knockout of Cuban Yunier Dorticos in a unification bout in Russia's resort city Sochi on Saturday.

    Gassiev, 24, the youngest member of the cruiserweight field of the World Boxing Super Series (WBSS), improved his record to 27-0 with 19 KOs, following the semi-final win in Sochi's Bolshoy Ice Dome.

    The 31-year-old previously unbeaten Dorticos nicknamed “The KO Doctor” has now dropped to 22-1 with 21 knockouts.

    “I'd like to thank everybody who supported me tonight. It's a very important win for me in the very important unification bout,” Gassiev said.

    “Dorticos is a great fighter, great champion, true hard-hitter and the real warrior. He never gives up.

    “It's a cruiserweight division and I was under tough pressure throughout the bout. I was never sure I'm winning the bout, before the very last moment.”

    Dorticos started confidently, trying to control the pace of the fight from the start. He performed some good jab work, while Gassiev also landed effective punches in the opening round.

    The Cuban continued to push the pace with the hard punches in the second, but Gassiev replied positively, landing some more solid shots of his own into his opponent's body.

    Later on, Dorticos continued peppering his rival with shots, but his unvaried attacks made little headway, as Gassiev defended stoutly, responding with rare but hard and precise punches.

    After the eighth round Dorticos' work rate noticeably slowed down and Gassiev stepped up the pressure, beginning to take control and show off his superior hand speed and precision.

    In the final round, Gassiev looked in complete command, sending Dorticos to the cavas twice before the referee stopped the bout with just 18 seconds remaining.

    The next stop for Gassiev is the Muhammad Ali trophy in the cruiserweight division of the WBSS final in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in May.

    There he will face Ukraine's Alexander Usyk, who beat Mairis Briedis of Latvia in the other WBSS semi-final.

    Bayern march on in BundesligaBayern march on in BundesligaRibery among scorers Rare goals make for a stunning game and yet another win. Franck Ribery netted a rare Bundesliga goal as Bayern Munich eased to an eighth consecutive league victory with a 2-0 win over Mainz on Saturday.

    After a sluggish first half-hour, the veteran Frenchman Frank Ribery put Bayern ahead on 33 minutes.

    Picking up a poorly cleared corner on the edge of the box, he released a fizzing half-volley to score only his second league goal of the season.

    James Rodriguez then doubled the lead just before half-time, elegantly bringing the ball down on his chest, before volleying it past Robin Zentner.

    “We were exhausted at the end,” Bayern centre-back Mats Hummels told Sky Sport. “Mainz passed the ball well, but we deserved to win.”

    English forward Ademola Lookman scored a late winner on his Bundesliga debut, as Leipzig beat Borussia Moenchengladbach to return to the top four.

    In a scrappy game on Saturday evening, Lookman came off the bench to score after joining on loan from Everton on deadline day, squeezing the ball past Tobias Sippel to secure victory in the 89th minute. Victory saw Leipzig move up to third, drawing level on points with Bayer Leverkusen, who laboured to a 0-0 draw with Freiburg.

    Lucas Alario hit the post for Leverkusen early in the game, but there were more yellow cards than chances, as seven players were booked and Freiburg once again frustrated a top team.

    “It was a heated game,” Leverkusen's Julian Brandt told Sky. “We knew in advance that it wouldn't be easy to come to Freiburg.”

    Leverkusen, though, remain in second after Schalke once again dropped points. Both teams profited from goalkeeping errors in Gelsenkirchen, as a late goal saw Werder Bremen snatch a surprise 2-1 victory.

    A catastrophic mistake from Jiri Pavlenka gifted Schalke the lead on 24 minutes. Yevhen Konoplyanka's speculative effort flew straight at the Bremen goalkeeper, who allowed the ball to slip through his fingers.

    “These things happen, it just looks stupid because he is the last man,” said striker Max Kruse in Pavlenka's defence. “We all made mistakes on the pitch today.”

    With 11 minutes to go there was more farcical goalkeeping, as Ralf Faehrmann allowed Kruse to equalise for Bremen.

    After Matija Nastasic was sent off for a second bookable offence, Faehrmann fumbled the resulting free-kick, allowing the ball to bounce out of his hands and into the path of Kruse.

    It would get worse for Schalke in stoppage time, as Zlatko Junuzovic stabbed a loose ball past Faehrmann, to claim a dramatic and invaluable victory for relegation-threatened Bremen.

    In the lower half of the table, Mario Gomez scored against his former club to rescue a point for VfB Stuttgart, as they welcomed new coach Tayfun Korkut with a 1-1 draw in Wolfsburg.

    Liverpool loanee Divock Origi put Wolfsburg in front on 24 minutes, curling a long-range shot into the bottom corner.

    Gomez, who left Wolfsburg for Stuttgart in January, levelled the scores on the hour mark, prodding the ball home from close range.

    In Saturday's other game, Hoffenheim extended their winless run to five matches, after throwing away a 1-0 lead to draw at Hertha Berlin.

    Andrej Kramaric gave Hoffenheim the lead from the penalty spot on 39 minutes, but Salomon Kalou's header drew the home side level just before the hour mark.

    On Friday, Michy Batshuayi scored twice on his debut for Borussia Dortmund, after joining on loan from Chelsea as his new club won 3-2 at bottom side Cologne.

    US ladies break 4x800m relay recordUS ladies break 4x800m relay record The American women's team set a world record in the 4x800m relay on Saturday at the Millrose Games indoor athletics meeting, with a time of 8 min 05.89 sec.

    Ajee Wilson anchored the American quartet that also included Chrishuna Williams, Raevyn Rogers and Charlene Lipsey, who bettered the world record of 8:06.24 set by Russia in Moscow in 2011. “It was insane,” said Wilson, who clocked 1:58.37 for her leg. “I could feel the crowd. They really pushed me, encouraged me to keep digging.”

    Elsewhere in the meeting at the New Balance Armory Track and Field Center, Rio Olympics 400m gold medalist Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas won the little-contested 300m in 35.45 sec, matching the best indoor time ever recorded in the event for which no world record is recognised. She equalled a mark set by Russian Irina Privalova in Moscow in 1993. Sage Watson of Canada was a distant second in 37.08 sec, breaking the 30-year old Canadian record in the event.
