Ghani left along with his National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib and a second close associate.

The escape of Ghani comes after the Taliban captured US made helicopters and Russian made planes in preparation of an attack on Kabul, the country’s capital of 3 million people that houses the government and foreign embassies.

The Taliban said it would further enter Kabul on Sunday night after spending hours on the city’s outskirts. Reports from Kabul say local police have deserted their posts.

The breakdown of law and order in Afghanistan comes as a major foreign policy failure for Joe Biden who announced the withdrawal of US Troops from the country thereby emboldening the militant group . After spending 20 years fighting the Taliban and training over 300,000 Afghan soldiers, the US still finds itself at stage one – a Taliban controlled countrythat could house Al-Qaeda terrorists who could plot attacks against the West.

In the past one week the Taliban has captured over 60 percent of the country and with the president fleeing, and foreign troops evacuating their Diplomatic staff, the total control of Afghanistan by the Taliban is now a matter of when and not if.

A princess is set to make a £730,000 payment to give up her royal status in order to marry her university classmate.

Japan’s Princess Mako, who is the granddaughter of then-Emperor Akihito, announced her engagement to college classmate, Kei Komuro, back in 2017 but the wedding has been delayed for years because of controversy over her fiancé.

The wedding was put off after reports of a financial dispute between Mr Komuro’s mother and her former fiancé.

It has now been reported that the government is set to agree that the princess foregoes the payment, worth up to 150 million yen, for royals giving up their status to marry commoners, according to Reuters.

Japanese public broadcaster NHK is reporting that the wedding date could be announced as early as next month.

Media have said the couple – who met while studying at the International Christian University in Tokyo – plan to live in the United States.

Under Japan’s males-only royal succession law, female members of the imperial family lose their status on marrying commoners.

Princess Mako of Akishino is one of Japan’s most popular and fashionable royals and has been likened to Kate Middleton.

In Japan, she is rarely out of the public eye, but for a year she disguised herself as a regular student at the University of Leicester.

Keen not to stick out, Princess Mako lived in halls of residence with other students while studying for a masters in Art Museum and Gallery Studies back in 2015.

The princess had previously studied at the University of Edinburgh on an exchange programme.

Her fiance, Mr Komuro is said to be an accomplished cook, skier and violinist and once worked as a “Prince of the Sea” to promote the beaches of Shonan in Kanagawa prefecture.

We May Take Legal Action Against T’di Woman For Wasting Our Resources : Police

Published

on

The Ghana Police Service has betokened that it is likely to take legal action against the woman who faked her pregnancy and kidnapping in Takoradi, Josephine Mensah Panyin Simson.

The police might take this action because the woman led them (the entire security service) on a meaningless chase over a feigned abduction and pregnancy case, she wasted their resources.

Acting Director-General in charge of Public Affairs at the Ghana Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori made these statements in an interview on Accra based Citi FM.

However, said the woman’s prosecution might happen soon.

“We are looking at the development closely and there is a greater possibility that she might appear before the court because she manufactured all these things with a figment of her own imagination and put the police into business.

And we deployed a 40-member search team and even when we located her through public assistance, we took her to the hospital with policemen providing security and where she claimed to have attended antenatal clinics, it turned out to be false.

We went in for a second opinion and got a team of doctors to work on her.

The police also placed an Assistant Commissioner of Police who is a criminal phycologist at her disposal who travelled from Accra to Takoradi and our Head of Counselling Department also went to Takoradi to assess her and offer assistance.

So if you quantify all these things, it is a big investment, but the police will continue to offer good support to our people and offer assistance.”
