MARLEY'S GHOST: After all the excitement of the news of Bob Marley being moved off to maunder in Ethiopia comes the denial: The Marley Foundation says Rita's words have been "twisted":

Desta Meghoo-Peddie told BBC 1Xtra: "She does express honestly and candidly the fact that Bob, as a Rasta man, loved Ethiopia and she would love to see the day where he is laid to rest in his father's land, and she has never been secretive about that.

"But we have never ever put out anything saying Bob is going to be exhumed, and returned home, and it is very painful to see something so wonderful is being twisted."

No reburial then; no new funeral. I've been baking seed cakes for nothing.
