Bonang shared that she had officially terminated the contract with the company and wished to make it clear that they do not represent her or her business ventures.

Chad have been readmitted to international football after FIFA ended a suspension, originally handed out for governmental interference in football, that had lasted six months. Football’s world governing body banned Chad after the country’s minister of youth and sports dissolved the FA (FTFA) in March. “The Bureau of the FIFA Council has decided to lift the suspension of the FTFA with immediate effect,” FIFA said in a statement on Tuesday.
The following reasons were given for the end of the ban: Chadian government authorities have reinstated the powers delegated to the FTFA, Chadian government authorities have repealed their decision to establish a national committee for the temporary management of football, FTFA premises are once again under the control of President Moctar Mahamoud. After the government dissolved the FTFA, African football’s body CAF disqualified Chad from the final two rounds of qualifying for January’s Africa Cup of Nations.
