Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, together with Hector Bellerin and Bernd Leno has named endangered baby mountain gorillas.

This is a part of Arsenal’s partnership with Visit Rwanda, the three-year deal was signed in 2018 and made the company the club’s official tourism partner.

During the ceremony, the three Arsenal stars had the chance to name three gorillas.

Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang named his baby gorilla Igitego which means ‘Goal’, which is the son of Pasika from the Mafunzo family and was born on July 5, 2019.

Hector Bellerin named a baby gorilla Iriza, which means ‘First Born’. Iriza is the daughter of Igihembo from the Kwitonda family and was born on October 11, 2019.

Bernd Leno named a baby gorilla Myugariro, which means ‘Defender’. Myugariro is the baby of Kubaha from the Amahoro family and was born on September 28, 2019.

Now in its 16th year, the occasion draws global attention to the importance of gorilla conservation. In previous years, some friends of conservation who have named baby mountain gorillas include Arsenal legends Tony Adams, Alex Scott, and Lauren, naturalist Sir David Attenborough, model Naomi Campbell and actor Natalie Portman.

Aubameyang, Bellerin, and Leno’s contribution to this year’s naming ceremony is part of Visit Rwanda’s partnership with Arsenal as the club’s official tourism partner and sleeve sponsor.

This year, 24 baby gorillas that call Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park home, will be named in a celebration of nature and the conservation front-liners who protect and care for them every day.
