Togo women push sex strike to unseat president Tags: Togo News African News Protests Politics African Women
The female wing of a civil rights group is urging women in Togo to stage a week-long sex strike to demand the resignation of the country's president.
 
Women are being asked to start withholding sex from their husbands or partners as of Monday, said Isabelle Ameganvi, leader of the women's wing of the group Let's Save Togo. She said the strike will put pressure on Togo's men to take action against President Faure Gnassingbe.
 
Ameganvi, a lawyer, told The Associated Press that her group is following the example of Liberia's women, who used a sex strike in 2003 to campaign for peace.
 
"We have many means to oblige men to understand what women want in Togo," Ameganvi said.
 
The sex strike was announced at a rally Saturday of several thousand in the capital city, Lome. The demonstration was organized by a coalition that is protesting recent electoral reforms, which they say will make it easier for Gnassingbe's party to win re-election in the parliamentary polls set for October.
 
Gnassingbe came to power in 2005, following the death of his father, Eyadema Gnassingbe, who ruled the West African country for 38 years. Gnassingbe has not commented on the sex strike, nor has his wife. Earlier this month, two anti-Gnassingbe protests were dispersed by police using tear gas and more than 100 people were arrested.
 
At Saturday's rally, which ended peacefully, Jean-Pierre Fabre, leader of the National Alliance for Change opposition party, called for Gnassingbe's resignation. Other opposition leaders called for civil disobedience.
 
But it is the sex strike that has people talking in this small country of more than 6 million people.
 
"It's a good thing for us women to observe this sex strike as long as our children are in jail now. I believe that by observing this, we will get them released," Abla Tamekloe said. "For me, it's like fasting, and unless you fast, you will not get what you want from God."
 
When asked if her husband would agree, Tamekloe said: "It is easy for me to observe it. I am used to it, but I am not sure my husband will accept, but I have to explain to him."
 
Another Togolese woman said she supports the sex strike, but she does not know if she can carry it out for a full week.
 
"I do agree that we women have to observe this sex strike but I know my husband will not let me complete it. He may agree at first, but as far as I know him, he will change overnight," Judith Agbetoglo said. "So I don't believe I can do the one-week sex strike. Otherwise, I will have serious issues with him. He likes that too much."
 
Though the call for a sex strike seemed to please many women, some men, including heads of opposition parties and human rights groups in the anti-Gnassingbe coalition, did not believe it would be a success.
 
"One week sex strike is too much," said Fabre of the National Alliance for Change, who suggested a shorter period, amid laughter from the crowd at the demonstration. "Let's go for only two days".
 
Others were skeptical of Isabelle Ameganvi's call.
 
"It is easy for her to say because she is not married herself. She does not live with a man at home," said Ekoue Blame, a Togolese journalist. "Does she think women who live with their husband will be able to observe that? By the way, who controls what couples do behind closed doors?".

Spurs sign Adebayor from Manchester City Tags: Sports African Sports Togo News Togo Sports Football Emmanuel Adebayor Celelbrity
Tottenham Hotspur have signed striker Emmanuel Adebayor from Premier League champions Manchester City on a permanent deal, the London club said on Tuesday.

The Togo international scored 18 goals in 37 appearances for Spurs last season on loan at White Hart Lane.
 
The clubs were reported by British media to have agreed a deal last month for the 28-year-old, who had been earning about 170,000 pounds a week at City.
 
No financial details of the transfer fee were available but media reports put its value at five million pounds.
 
Adebayor joined Tottenham's north London rivals Arsenal from Monaco in early 2006 and moved to City in 2009 in the first wave of big-money signings by the Manchester club's Qatari owners.
 
But he fell out of favour when Roberto Mancini replaced Mark Hughes as City manager. He had a loan spell at Real Madrid in early 2011 before joining Tottenham for the 2011-12 campaign.
 
"I am pleased to be signing for Spurs on a permanent basis after finally agreeing my departure with Manchester City," Adebayor told the club website (www.tottenhamhotspur.com):
 
"It may have taken longer than expected but I am delighted to be back at Tottenham. I really enjoyed my time here last season and I am hoping we can achieve great things together again."

Togo vows to block opposition's Tuesday protest Tags: Togo News African News Protests Politics
Togo's security minister on Monday vowed that an opposition rally planned for a key district in the capital would not take place, as authorities would block access to the area.
 
A coalition of civil society and opposition groups called Let's Save Togo, which has led a wave of recent protests, last week called for rallies between August 21 to 23 in Deckon, a major commercial centre in Lome.
 
The group insisted the demonstration would go ahead as scheduled, despite the minister's warnings.
 
Togo's government had already announced a ban on street rallies, while on Monday Security Minister Colonel Yark Damehane said protesters would be barred from entering Deckon.
 
"Tomorrow, Deckon will not be accessible to demonstrators. We are going to take measures so that the march does not get started," he told journalists.
 
Several protests, which have come ahead of parliamentary elections expected in October, have been dispersed with tear gas in recent months, including those at Deckon. Security agents also blocked protesters' access to Deckon in June.
 
The security minister said a rally could not be held in the area because of the potential risks to public and private property as well as the challenges of maintaining order.
 
"We will do everything possible to avoid confrontation," the minister added.
 
A top official from Let's Save Togo, Zeus Ajavon, however insisted the protest "would indeed take place in Deckon" as scheduled.
 
"The statements from the security minister are null and void," Ajavon told journalists.
 
While the elections are expected to be held in October in the West African nation, no precise date has been set.
 
Togo has been run by the same family for more than four decades. Gnassingbe Eyadema ruled the country for 38 years with an iron fist until his death in 2005.
 
Faure Gnassingbe was installed in the presidency by the army in 2005 shortly after the announcement of the death of his father, who had been a general. He has since won elections in 2005 and 2010.

Category: Rumors
Tags: Emmanuel Adebayor Gossip Rumors Majid Michel Movie News Famous Africans Togo News
We have seen him dribble his way to score amazing goals on the football pitch, and we have even seen him do some amazing and ridiculous dance moves on and off the pitch, but can Man City and Togolese football star Emmanuel Adebayor act as well.

Well, it seems that the footballer may soon be seen on screens across Africa as he recently announced his amazing acting talent to Ghanaians.
 
In an endorsement message for the 2011 Ghana Movie Awards, Adebayor said that Ghana and indeed the rest of Africa should be ready to experience his acting ability, claiming that he can act better than most of known actors.
 
He particularly stated that he can act better than Majid Michel and the other guys, with a straight face that made him look serious about what he was saying.
 
Adebayor's comments triggered a lot of laughter when the video was played back to an audience including Majid, the press and other movie stars at the recent launch of the 2011 Ghana Movie Award at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Accra.
 
Is the football star looking for another money earner when he retires from his prolific football career?
