feed them, was forced to boil stones to trick
her children into having hope that they’ll
soon eat. peninah Bahti Kitsao, a widow who lives in Mombasa, Kenya, worked as a local laundrywoman before the lockdown.

neighbor who heard them crying went over to see what was going on.

According to her neighbour, Prisca Nyakaragio Momanyi, she heard the children’s cries and rushed to check on the matter, only to find that their mother had boiled stones.

Prisca shared her neighbour’s plight with
people and the story made it to the local and
international media.

The widow was interviewed by Kenya’s NTV
and this prompted donations from a good number of people.The widow said she could not believe people would come to her rescue the way they did, calling everything a very big miracle

Bruno Fernandes’s penalty hands United a first home win in a match of two penalties

Published

By

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes his side were ‘lucky’ that West Brom had a penalty decision overturned in their 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

 

After a goalless first 45 minutes, Slaven Bilic’s side were awarded a spot-kick early in the second half after referee David Coote ruled that Bruno Fernandes had fouled Conor Gallagher in the box.

 

VAR however intervened with the decision eventually changed after Coote reviewed the incident on the sideline. Replays suggested Fernandes did make some contact with the ball before the man.

 

The Red Devils made the most of the call and were themselves awarded a penalty 10 minutes later which Fernandes tucked away at the second time of asking after his first attempt was saved only for goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to be caught coming of his line.

 

Solskjaer, referencing Aston Villa’s similarly overturned last-minute spot-kick in their 2-1 home defeat to Brighton earlier on Saturday, told BT Sport he thought both penalties should have been awarded.

 

He said: “I looked at the penalty this afternoon at Villa-Brighton, and there’s contact on the ball and the man. In my head, it might be a penalty, and there as well.

 

With this victory, United see themselves in the top half of the table for the first time this seasin with 13 points from 9 games at 8th position.

 

While for West Brom, they remain in the bottom three with only 3 points.

 

United will host Istanbul Basaksehir midweek, while also to play away to Southampton on Sunday.
