The Best Professor Wilson Tarpeh Can Do

first_imgDear Mr. Editor,My writing is in reaction to Professor Wilson Tarpeh’s claim that his association with an opposition political party, Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) is responsible for withholding funds that should come to the University of Liberia (UL) to reopen, something he says is leading to his resignation as vice president for Fiscal Affairs.Professor Tarpeh claims that serving as a campaign manager for George Weah in the 2014 special senatorial election is the main reason for withholding the funds, being VP for Fiscal Affairs.  Let me firstly remind the professor that his role as “campaign manager” did not make any impact on the election of George Weah, but Weah has his constituents already built in Monrovia. No one has to run campaign for Weah as evidently seen here, but all the deceptive intellectuals in CDC, including the Mr. Tarpeh, are just riding on Weah’s popularity to ascend to positions they dearly desire.If Professor Tarpeh can resign with clean hands, he can call on the General Auditing Commission (GAC) to audit him to clearly establish that he did not misapply any funds.  Let Professor Tarpeh state the meaning of “Other fees” stipulated on our payment slip in 2013.  Where did this money go?  Let Professor Tarpeh allow former vice president for Academic Affairs & Provost, Weade Elliot-Brownell, to reveal information about financial malpractices she mentioned when she was forced to resign in 2013, and when she appeared before the Senate following her appointment at the Foreign Ministry.  If he can do these to erase the suspicion, we will know that the withholding of funds as claimed by him is truly politically motivated.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Fire service warns of overloaded circuit breakers, illegal connections

first_imgIn light of the increase in fires across the country, Fire Prevention Officer at the Guyana Fire Service, Sheldon Sauna has warned homeowners to display safe electrical practices.Fire Prevention Officer, Sheldon SaunaDuring Fire Prevention Week activities on Friday, he told the media that electrical fires are mainly caused by illegal connections or overloading the electrical circuit system.Illegal connections, which are commonly practiced throughout the country, can also cause electrocution because such connections are usually unsafely constructed and don’t have the required electrical protection. In some cases, persons can be killed accidentally when they are in contact with live wires.Meanwhile, Sauna also acknowledged the fact that persons have been setting fires deliberately, which can cause result in more severe catastrophes.“Having illegal connections or overloading the circuit breakers contributes a lot, not just to electrical fires but fires on a whole….We have persons within their surroundings who would light illegal fires and then sometimes, it spreads into something big. It can catch hours and that sort of thing,” he said.In August, a 34-year-old carpenter died almost instantly after being electrocuted whilst on a fishing trip with his family at Coverden, East Bank Demerara (EBD).Orlando Ramnarine was with his wife, Aronva Parmanand and his brother-in-law on a fishing trip at El Sol Farm, commonly called the “cherry farm” on the East Bank of Demerara.At about 13:30h on the said day, Ramnarine was in the process of casting his fishing net when it came into contact with a live exposed electrical wire, which subsequently caused the now dead man to instantly collapse. While the wire was disconnected shortly after, GPL later confirmed that an illegal connection was the cause of the incident.In order to reduce the importation and use of substandard electrical products which often result in these fires and other damages, the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS), in partnership with the Government Electrical Inspectorate (GEI), has developed a number of standards which will see the supervision of various electrical items being imported, resold and used throughout the country.A total of 31 national standards were developed by the Bureau’s electro-technical committee, and were later approved by the National Standards Council to stipulate requirements for the electrical fittings and equipment.Some of the standards titles include: seasonal and holiday decorative products, lamp holders, armoured cables, panel boards, surge protective devices and grounding and bonding equipment, among others. The Bureau is expected to commence the enforcement of these standards on February 1, 2020.last_img read more

Tanzanian Club Azam holds Uganda Cranes to a draw

first_imgThe Cranes team that was held to a 2-2 draw by Azam FC. Courtesy photo.By Shaban BentekeUganda Cranes played out a 2 all draw with Tanzanian money bags Azam FC at the St Marys stadium in kitende this evening.This was Cranes second warm up game in four days after running out 2-0 winners on Saturday against Azam Premier League reigning champions KCCA FC.Azam FC who are in the country for a 10-day training camp gave Cranes a good run for their money having taken the lead on the stroke of half time through star striker Jr Waziri after a brilliant display that held off Uganda’s defender Bernard Muwanga.Uganda’s interim coach Moses Basena made seven changes at the start of the second half and they paid dividends as sub Muzamiru Mutyaba fed the ball to captain Nicholas Wadada who took a shot from the tightest of angles for the equaliser.Basena made a further three subs with Onduparaka’s Shaban Muhammed Viper’s new signing Tom Masiko and SC Villa’s Simon Sserunkuma on for URA’s Shafic Kagimu, SC Villa’s Bernard Muwanga and SC Viper’s Milton Karisa.Ten minutes to stoppage time, Azam FC scored their second and third goal of the game through Joseph Kimwagu and it looked to be the winner before defender Karim Himin brought down Shaban Muhammed for a late penalty. Muzamiru Mutyaba made no mistake from the spot as he sent the goalkeeper the wrong way for a late equalizer.Commentslast_img read more

How the Cranes players rated against Egypt!

first_img Tags: AFCON 2019Ahmed ElmuhamedyDR CongoEgyptGroup AMohammad SalahtopUganda Craneszimbabwe The Cranes team that started against Egypt on Sunday. (PHOTOS/FUFA)The Uganda Cranes sealed a spot in the round of 16 despite losing 0-2 against Egypt on Sunday night.After starting strongly, Sebastien Desabre’s side succumbed to two first-half goals by Mohammad Salah and Ahmed Elmohamedy.With DR Congo defeating Zimbabwe 4-0 in the other group A game, Uganda finished second with 4 points, 5 behind leaders Egypt.Here is how the Uganda Cranes rated on Sunday night.Denis Onyango 6.0: After conceding only one goal in the first two games, Onyango let in two on Sunday. However, he produced a stunning save to deny Salah in the second half before the Mamelodi Sundowns custodian was stretchered off late in the game.Nicholas Wadada 4.5: Was brought in for Bevis Mugabi but did no justice to the technical team as he was at fault for leaving Ahsraf Akimi in acres of space to create the second goal.Godfrey Walusimbi 6.0: Looked suspect against the pacey Salah but recovered on several occasions.Hassan Wasswa 5.0: Wasswa lined up with a third defensive partner in as many games and was at fault for conceding the free kick from which Salah opened the scoring.Timothy Awany 6.0: At times looked rusty but gave a good account of himself as he tried to start attacks from the back.Khalid Aucho 4.5: Just like in the draw against Zimbabwe, Aucho once again performed below expectations as the likes of Muhammed Elney got their way in the middle throughout the game.Mike Azira 6.0: With Aucho struggling, it was Azira who consistently clamed things down in midfield with his calm and composed passing.Lumala Abdu 4.0: Lost the ball on more occasions than any other Cranes player and whenever he got into promising positions, his delivery was poor.Lumala (right) in action against Egypt on Sunday.Allan Kyambadde 7.0: Starting his first game in the competition, Kyambadde was a handful for the Pharaohs. The KCCA FC forward registered three shots on target.Farouk Miya 5.5: Miya had another below-par performance against Egypt. He produced so little going forward and his set-pieces left a lot to be desired.Emmanuel Okwi 5.0: Missed a glorious opportunity to reduce the deficit in the second half and aside from that moment, Okwi struggled to curb out anything worthy writing home about.Substitutes                                                            Robert Odongkara 6.0: Had liitle to do after replacing the injured Denis Onyango but never the less, kept a clean sheet for himself.Taddeo Lwanga 6.0: Released Okwi to miss Uganda’s best chance and seemed to have calmed down the pressure after coming on.Luwagga Kizito N/a: Had limited time on the pitch to make any sort of impact.Comments last_img read more

Young minds caring for the homeless

first_imgYRobert Mtshali’s Young Minds Care and Phumlani Makhaye’s Master P Social Investments are gearing up to spread some cheer this Easter, delivering food and clothing to Joburg’s homeless as temperatures drop “When I was in high school I had to pass on a lot of things because of my financial situation; I’d say that had the biggest role to play in me getting to where I am now; that, and all the people who helped me get here,” says Robert Mtshali, founder of the Young Minds Group and a firm believer in the values of Ubuntu.In 2009, when he was 19 years old, Mtshali registered his business, then called Young Minds Cleaning Services.“My passion for helping people has always been there; it’s just that before I didn’t have the influence to do so but now I can and I am,” Mtshali explains, adding “I want to be as influential as my role model, Jay Z.”He adds; “Most of the things that I do, the initiatives that I do or take part in, relate to my personal experiences or those of someone close to me, like my colleagues and friends.”GOING TO THE MATRIC DANCEIn mid-2013 Mtshali and Young Minds Care (YMC), his company’s welfare arm, started Fabricated, the company’s first initiative aimed at benefitting the underprivileged.Fabricated identified six high school pupils – three boys and three girls – from Eastbank High School in Alexandra, who had performed admirably during their first semester and who couldn’t afford to go to their matric dance.Young Minds Care supplied the students with clothing, and funds for grooming and entrance fees to their dance as a reward for their hard work at school.“I also didn’t go to my matric dance due to financial constraints at the time and I really wanted to go but I couldn’t, and that hit me really hard, so I thought I would try my level best to help a few people who were in a similar situation,” says Mtshali.CHRISTMAS CHEERIn 2013 Mtshali and his colleagues wanted to do something different for Christmas, “so we decided to spend the day with people who weren’t as fortunate as we were and bring a few things with us to brighten up their festive season”.Shortly after Mtshali and his company joined forces with Phumlani Makhaye of Master P Social Investments to hold Homeless Xmas, spending Christmas Day delivering food and clothing to some 60 homeless people living under the Nelson Mandela Bridge in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.Master P Social Investments encourages young people to share their successes by giving back to their communities.SHARING THIS EASTER“When we held our Christmas event we noticed there were more people than we expected and later found out there were just under 200 homeless people living under a bridge in Newtown so we thought it would be good for us to do something this Easter for them,” says Mtshali.This year YMC and Master P Social Investments are planning a Homeless Easter Drive on 19 April, distributing food and clothing to a group of people living under the M1 bridge over Newtown; the organisations invite Joburgers who want to help out to join them on the day at 8am.The organisations need donations of food and clothing to distribute on the day and are also trying to organise medical screenings for children in the group.“We are also trying to help these people get their documentation sorted out because we’ve noticed that a lot of them don’t have IDs or birth certificates,” Mtshali says. “This makes finding a job and proving they have dependants for social grants even harder for them.“For the little kids, we’re trying as much as we can to at least get them into schools so that they can get an education and hopefully break the chain of poverty.”PLAY YOUR PARTTo donate food and clothing to YMC and Master P Social Investment’s Easter drive, visit The Branson Centre in Braamfontein, the Mark Kidds Photographic Studio at Maponya Mall and Gordon Ridge Complex in Florida Glen.“Let’s carry the legacy of Nelson Mandela and let’s do what he believed in most, which is helping each other and loving one another regardless who the other may be,” says Mtshali.“Let’s do good and have fun at the same time.”To find out more about the event, or Young Minds Group and Master P Social Investments, email Robert Mtshali at or call him on +27 (0) 84 811 6916, or email Phumlani Makhaye at or call him on +27 (0) 78 792 6657.last_img read more

This geocache is one of the oldest in the Netherlands and a favorite of locals and tourists. At one point it was also a favorite of local pigeons, but thanks to a clever anti-pigeon system, that’s no longer an issue. Earlier this year, Geocaching HQ’s videographer, Reid (reidsomething), and a Geocaching HQ Volunteer Coordinator, Kerb (KerbL), teamed up with two locals to find this geocache.
