GENEVA, Switzerland, February 14, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ – The February edition of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking is dominated by the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. By claiming their third title, Nigeria (30th, up 22) have not only ended a 19-year drought since they last won the tournament, but have also climbed 22 places to 30th – their best ranking since August 2010 – while beaten finalists Burkina Faso (55th, up 37) have moved up a massive 37 places to 55th. Hosts South Africa (60th, up 25) have also enjoyed a significant leap of 25 places. Although former Africa Cup of Nations winners Côte d’Ivoire (12th, up 2) bowed out at the quarter-final stage, last year’s runners-up have achieved their best-ever world ranking. However, the Elephants have not made it into the top ten, where Spain (1st, unchanged) continue to reign supreme ahead of Germany (2nd, unchanged) and Argentina (3rd, unchanged). England (4th, up 2) complete the top four after their home win over Brazil.

By Chancy Namadzunda Airtel Malawi handed over K1.5 million to two customers who were grand winners in the Airtel Rising Stars Promotion which ended a few months ago. The two, Pamba Ngulube and Nancy Kuntha Yolamu came tops in the ARS and Lololo Fiesta respectively. They were supposed to fly to England to watch the English Premeir League game this month but failed to travel because they have denied a Visa. Airtel Malawi Public Relations Manager Edith Tsilizani said the company is proud because the prizes will make a difference in their subscribers' life. "What matters most to us is to make our customers happy. Though they failed to fly, the altenative prize will make a difference. "We want to demonstrate that everybody in Malawi can unleash the opportunity that mobile communication provide by simply being on the right network," she said.
