PHOTO/CourtesyMACHAKOS, Kenya, Jan 15- Kenyan Premier League defending champions Gor Mahia have been handed a reprieve ahead of their CAF Champions League campaign after Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua lifted a ban imposed on the club on the use of the Kenyatta Stadium.Mutua had ordered a ban on the 16-time Premier League champions after a section of the fans went on destructive rampage around the town following their loss to Sofapaka in their run-up to the league title in 2014. “Following negotiations brokered by my sports minister Faith Kithu, we have decided to lift the ban for the love of the sport and promotion of sports tourism in the county,” Mutua said on Monday afternoon after a meeting with Gor Mahia officials led by chairman Ambrose Rachier.Also present at the meeting was AFC Leopards chairman Dan Mule.However, Gor Mahia will be required to pay a Sh1mn goodwill fee to the county government following the lifting of the ban.“We know the amount is not enough for the damages caused by our fans, but it’s a goodwill gesture to show our appreciation for being welcomed back,” Gor boss Rachier remarked.He admitted that the club has been fighting the hooliganism vice since the 2014 incident but assured that the same had been stemmed immensely and was on the decline.AFC Leopards chairman Dan Mule was also part of the meeting with Governor Alfred Mutua at his Machakos office. PHOTO/CourtesyGor Mahia was in limbo over the facility to use for their CAF Champions League campaign which kicks off in February as the Kenyatta Stadium is the only CAF recognized facility in the country with both Nyayo and Kasarani stadia closed for renovation.They were banking on an inspection of the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega for the same, but a date hasn’t been set yet. AFC Leopards will also most likely stage their Confederations Cup campaign at the same venue.The season-opening Super Cup pitting the two giants might also be considered for the Kenyatta Stadium which also played host to the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup last month.At the same time, Mutua said the county government will construct 8 stadia, one in each sub county in the next two years.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Carryout order yields intruder plenty of dough

first_imgA pizza parlor burglar paused to make a pizza before fleeing with $3,000. A security camera showed the intruder playing pizza chef after breaking into Sonny’s Pizza and Pasta through a bathroom window early Monday, said Lt. Ted Boyne of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. The burglar put on an employee’s shirt after entering the San Clemente pizza parlor about 2 a.m., then made a pizza, spreading sauce, cheese and pepperoni over the dough and placing it in the oven, the lieutenant said. Employees arriving about 3 a.m. apparently scared him off before the pizza was ready, Boyne said. The burglar fled with about $3,000.

€10M TO REBUILD LETTERKENNY GENERAL HOSPITAL, MEETING TOLD

first_img€10M rebuild under way at Letterkenny General HospitalBy Rachel McLaughlin: IT will cost €10M to rebuild Letterkenny General Hospital, a public meeting in the town was told today.The figure is substantially less than the estimates put forward recently.But it still represents half of the cost of the new Emergency Department destroyed in July’s flood. The HSE hospital group meeting also confirmed details of an engineer’s report published by Donegal Daily last month which showed that 57mm of rainfall in just 15 minutes caused the damage.The second public meeting of the Board of the West/North West Hospitals Group has been taking place at the Mount Errigal Hotel.The €10M cost will help restore 11 areas at the hospital after 70% of its capacity was wiped out in the disaster.Areas affected included the Coronary Care Unit, Emergency Department, Radiology Department, Haematology Oncology Ward, Kitchen & Dining Facilities, Laboratory, Main Out-Patient Department, Cardiac Investigations ad Medical Records & Office Accommodation. The design team has already been appointed and the scope of works identified. This has been carried out in parallel with the installation of temporary facilities such as the temporary ED and radiology departments.Within a month of the flood the diversion arrangements effected by the Emergency Department were stood down. The re-build of Emergency Department will be completed around the end of the first quarter in 2014 with the overall re-building project finishing by autumn 2014.“The flooding at Letterkenny General Hospital is regarded as the most significant disaster in the history of the state in the Acute Sector. We will ensure that the new buildings are restored in line with current standards in patient care, resulting in improvements in a number of areas,” hospital group boss Bill Maher said.The rebuilding works will include a new culvert costing approximately €250,000. A planning application has been submitted to Donegal County Council and it is expected that construction will start before year-end. The HSE and the West/North West Hospital Group is considering a report into the existing culvert and the flooding and it is expected that this will be published shortly.Mr Seán Murphy, General Manager at Letterkenny General Hospital, told the meeting that they are hoping to resume virtually all services at the hospital in the coming weeks but that they expect that it will be some months before they return to pre-flood conditions. “Unfortunately, service capacity and flexibility will remain disrupted as we continue to rely on temporary and offsite facilities and in-patient and out-patient waiting list targets at both Letterkenny and Sligo will be adversely affected and plans are being developed to address this,” he admitted.Hospital group chair Noel Daly praised staff and local volunteers who worked to clean up the flood mess and thanked hospitals in the North for providing cover.Tony O’Brien, Director General of the Health Service Executive insisted: “Letterkenny hospital will be strengthened not just by new and better infrastructure but by being part of the West/North West Hospital Group, enabling it to contribute to better integrated patient services.”More to follow… €10M TO REBUILD LETTERKENNY GENERAL HOSPITAL, MEETING TOLD was last modified: September 17th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:hospitalLetterkenny floodmeetingMount Errigal Hotellast_img read more

Like Shafick Kagimu against Nyamityobora, Saidi Kyeyune set up and also failed to convert from 12 yards as he sent his effort wide of the mark.As URA pressed for the winner, Police sat back and try to see out the draw resulting into several bookings with Sadat Kyambadde, Paul Wila and Ruben Kimera all going into Olumu’s book.Despite the late surge by Sam Simbwa’s side, they could not find the winner as the game ended 0-0.After Saturday’s draw, URA remain 8th with 12 points from 8 games this season.For Police, having now gathered 11points, they also remain 9th .The Uganda Premier League action resumes on Sunday with KCCA at home to Nyamityobora at the StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo.Comments last_img read more

Le reseau de transport d’Afrique du Sud

first_imgL’Afrique du Sud possede les infrastructures de transport d’un pays entierement developpe. Les routes sont de rang mondial. Les reseaux aerien et ferre sont les plus etendus du continent. Et les ports du pays offrent une halte naturelle pour les bateaux en provenance ou a destination de l’Europe, des Ameriques, de l’Asie, de l’Asie Australe et les deux cotes de l’Afrique.Le secteur des transports a ete mis en lumiere par le gouvernement en tant que principal contributeur a la competitivite de l’Afrique du Sud sur les marches internationaux. On le perçoit de plus en plus comme un moteur de la croissance economique et du developpement social.La Coupe du Monde 2010 de la FifaL’Afrique du Sud prevoit d’investir 9 milliards de rands pour ameliorer et developper les infrastructures de transport dans neuf villes d’accueil afin de faire face a l’arrivee massive de visiteurs attendus pour la Coupe du Monde 2010 de la Fifa.Ces preparatifs concernent des modernisations majeures des aeroports du pays et des ameliorations du systeme de transport general, y compris un programme de recapitalisation des taxis, le renforcement du transport ferroviaire de passagers et la transformation du secteur des bus.Les ports et l’expeditionLes principales lignes maritimes longent le littoral de l’Afrique du Sud dans l’Atlantique Sud et l’Ocean Indien. Environ 96 % des exportations d’Afrique du Sud sont transportees par la mer et les sept ports commerciaux du pays sont des points d’entree pour le commerce entre l’Afrique du Sud et ses partenaires en Afrique Australe et servent aussi de plateformes pour les echanges en provenance et a destination de l’Europe, de l’Asie, des Ameriques et des cotes ouest et est de l’Afrique.L’Autorite Nationale des Ports Transnet detenue par l’etat gere les ports du pays. Ce sont : Richards Bay a Durban au KwaZulu-Natal, East London et Port Elizabeth dans la region d’Eastern Cape et Mossel Bay au CAp et Saldanha dans la region de Western Cape.Durban est le port commercial de l’Afrique et le plus grand en termes de containeurs en Afrique Australe, Richard’s Bay est le plus grand terminal de cargaison du monde. Ensemble, les ports d’Afrique du Sud ont gere 183 millions de tonnes de cargo en 2007 et d’importantes modernisations sont en cours pour augmenter la capacite de gestion.Un huitieme port commercial, le port de Nqura, est developpe au large de Port Elizabeth dans la province d’Eastern Cape, les premiers navires commerciaux devant arriver au port en 2009. Nqura devrait etre le terminal pour conteneurs le plus profond d’Afrique. C’est une partie essentielle de Coega, l’une des zones de developpement industriel strategiques d’Afrique du Sud.Les routesLe reseau routier total d’Afrique du Sud fait environ 754 000 kilometres, dont 9 600km de routes nationales. Le voyage de Messina a la frontiere nord de l’Afrique du Sud jusqu’au Cap au Sud se fait sur 2 000 km de routes bien entretenues.Environ 2 400 km de routes du pays sont payantes.Alors que le Ministere des transports est responsable de la politique generale, la construction et l’entretien des routes relevent de la responsabilite de l’Agence des Routes Nationales d’Afrique du Sud et de celle des neuf provinces et gouvernements locaux.Le chemin de ferL’Afrique du Sud possede un reseau de chemin de fer etendu, le 10eme plus long du monde raccorde aux reseaux de la region sub-saharienne.La societe publique Transnet Freight Rail est la voie de chemin de fer et le transporteur le plus important d’Afrique australe avec un reseau ferroviaire d’environ 22 000 km, dont 1 500 km sont des voies de transport. Les infrastructures ferroviaires de la societe qui relient les ports au reste de l’Afrique du Sud representent environ 80 % du total de l’Afrique.Le gouvernement a lance un projet d’amelioration de la securite ferroviaire et de regain des voyages par train en tant que choix de transport public viable. En 2008, le gouvernement a declare qu’il allait investir 19,5 milliards de rands par an sur quatre ans pour moderniser ses infrastructures portuaires et ferroviaires, la moitie environ etant destinee au secteur du fret ferroviaire.La South African Rail Commuter Corporation exploite les services de transport Metrorail au Cap, dans la province d’Eastern Cape, a Durban, dans Johannesburg et sa banlieue et a Pretoria, en ciblant principalement les sud-africains pauvres.Les touristes et les passagers aises peuvent voyager sur le Blue Train, l’un des trains de luxe les plus celebres du monde, alors que Shosholoza Meyl transporte environ quatre millions de passagers par an entre les principales villes du pays.Des services font aussi la liaison avec d’autres destinations d’Afrique australe au Zimbabwe, au Mozambique et au Swaziland.La liaison ferroviare a grande vitesse du GautrainLe Gautrain, un reseau ferroviaire a grande vitesse, reliera Johannesburg, Pretoria et l’aeroport international OR Tambo, allegeant le trafic sur l’autoroute Johannesburg-Pretoria en offrant aux voyageurs une alternative sure et viable au transport routier.Le projet de 25 milliards de rands est un partenariat public-prive entre le gouvernement de la province de Gauteng et la societe Bombelo Concession, un consortium canadien-français-sud-africain. On estime que le Gautrain aura cree environ 33 000 emplois d’ici 2009.Vingt-quatre trains feront le trajet a 160 km/heure, pendant 18 heures par jour et transportant au total pres de 135 000 passagers par jour. Les transports secondaires vers et depuis les gares et les destinations proches se feront en bus de luxe.Il y aura 10 gares, dont trois seront souterraines.
