Former German leader Gerhard Schroeder is suing to restore the perks he enjoyed as ex-chancellor after he was stripped of them by parliament following criticism over his ties with Russia. Schroeder was chancellor from 1998 to 2005 and he has long had a close relationship with Russian energy companies and President Vladimir Putin. Those links came under heightened scrutiny following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine this year. German news agency dpa quoted Schroeder’s lawyer as saying Friday that his client had filed a suit with Berlin’s administrative court to restore the necessary funding he previously received for his office and staff.

State funds and a federal grant were used to pay for the $32 million project. Justice says local leaders in Wayne County are the best to make sure the facility is operating as it should.

Southwest Tennessee Community College has found a novel way to help cash-strapped students. The school has made all Friday classes virtual this summer, allowing students to save money on gas. Southwest is the only majority Black public community college in the state. A large portion of students use Pell grants to help pay for school, and many are adult learners who have to work. Cory Major is the vice president of student affairs. He tells WPLN-FM that the Memphis-based school has an obligation to help struggling students stay in school.

The head of Kenya’s government-created media council says local media outlets haven’t been asked to stop their counting of presidential election results after observers noticed a dramatic slowdown in reporting on the close contest. The chief executive of the Media Council of Kenya told The Associated Press on Friday that “no one has asked anyone to stop.” But the CEO added that “we want to align the numbers with each other” and “I think let’s peer review our numbers.” He said he was going into a meeting with media leaders as he spoke. Kenya could see a runoff presidential election for the first time in the race between longtime opposition leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto.
