Comedian Daniel Xuereb is the second comedian to be charged in court. This comes after he made comments on River of Love Pastor Gordon Manche. 

Following a video wherein Gordon Manche stated that anal sex is an abomination and could invite demonic forces into one’s life, comedian Daniel Xuereb decided to include these into his comedic skit.

In his comedy sketch, which is posted on social media, Xuereb jokes that we should listen to Manche when it comes to anal sex due to him being ‘Malta’s biggest asshole’. 

He goes on to joke how he wishes to know how the demonic forces are at play when people engage in anal sex, to the laughter of the crowd. 

This marks the second comedian to be taken to court over comments about Manche, after Bis-Serjeta satirist Matthew Bonanno implied that the evangelical pentecostal group should be carpet bombed.

Rota issue proposal after Paceville flyover draft leak

Rota issue proposal after Paceville flyover draft leak
Jun 12 2023 Share

Local NGO Rota issued a proposal after MaltaToday published the latest draft being proposed by Infrastructure Malta for St Andrew’s Road between Paceville, Pembroke and Swieqi. 

Rota expressed frustrations and concerns about the proposed infrastructure, saying that they are not being consulted and it was only through the leak that plans were made public.

The NGO put forth a proposal, packed with visual analysis of what IM are proposing. 

‘While acknowledging that this is still an early draft which is still being modified, we can’t dismiss the fact that this is once again heading in a completely opposite direction from what Malta should be aiming for’, explained Rota. 

‘The car-centric nature of the concept and its negative impact it’s leaving on active mobility, needs to be challenged. In today’s day and age we should be prioritising the movement of people over cars’.

Rota explained that it is impossible for a few volunteers at Rota to chase and check every permit, trying to understand what is going on from bits and pieces of information. 

‘We solemnly request to be included in consultations from the early design stages, alongside councils and other stakeholders before it’s too late, to make sure together that the project is planned holistically with space being fairly distributed towards all road users without afterthought.’

MEP David Casa supports injured athlete Andrea Calleja’s journey to recovery

Jun 12 2023 Share

Maltese Member of the European Parliament (MEP) David Casa recently visited Andrea Calleja, a 30-year-old athlete who was severely injured during a race in Malta last year. Calleja’s injuries were so severe that he had to seek treatment in Rome due to the lack of suitable machinery in Malta. Moved by Calleja’s determination and courage, David Casa pledged his support to help him and his family through this challenging medical and financial journey.

On October 9th, 2022, during a sporting activity in Għajn Tuffieħa, Mellieħa, tragedy struck when Andrea Calleja suffered serious injuries while going down a slide. Members of the Malta Red Cross, present at the event, immediately rushed him to Mater Dei Hospital. However, the severity of his injuries necessitated further treatment abroad.

Expressing his emotions and solidarity, David Casa took to Facebook, sharing a heartfelt post along with a photo of himself and Calleja during the hospital visit in Rome. Casa acknowledged Calleja’s courage and determination in seeking the best possible treatment in Italy.

Casa shed light on the challenges faced by Andrea Calleja and his family. Due to the lack of suitable medical equipment in Malta, they had to travel to Italy to ensure the best care for his recovery. The financial burden associated with such circumstances can be immense, adding to the already difficult journey of healing and rehabilitation.

In his Facebook post, David Casa assured Andrea Calleja and his family that he would stand by them in their medical and financial challenges.

Andrea Calleja’s journey to recovery is one marked by tremendous courage and resilience. Despite the challenges he has faced, he continues to exhibit strength and determination. His story serves as an inspiration to others, showcasing the indomitable human spirit in the face of adversity.
