first_imgFlooded 15 Gate to Du Bridge Road. Residents in the area are compelled to travel to Harbel by canoe, due to the collapse of the Du River Bridge in June of 2017.But life jackets donated by Rep. Tarwonpeh saves all 12 on boardBy Richard Duke Baysah (LINA)Kakata – Another canoe has capsized near the collapsed Du River Bridge along the 15 Gate – Harbel route.The canoe had 12 persons, including two operators, on board, but this time all survived the incident.Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Bondiway, in Firestone, Acee Tweh, a correction officer who was among those that survived the incident, said they went to Harbel to attend to their individual businesses and were returning home late Wednesday evening when the canoe capsized.Acee Tweh, 33, a survivor from Wednesday’s capsized canoe of the Du River in Firestone“We got to the crossing point very late that evening, at about 7:30 PM and immediately launched an appeal to the operator of the canoe to cross us. He was very reluctant, owing to the fact that it was very dark and there was no light to see,” Miss Tweh explained.She also said that when they boarded the canoe and tried to cross the river, they found it difficult due to the high current of the water. The operator lost control of the canoe, and it collided with a very big stick in the middle of the water, causing it to turn over with them.“I was the only passenger on board without a life jacket, so I nearly got drowned during the incident”, Tweh said.The incident has left Miss Tweh with multiple wounds on her body. She is now urinating with blood as a result of inhaling a huge quantity of water after the canoe capsized.A similar incident occurred last month over the Gben River in Smell No Taste, after a canoe capsized with 15 people on board. That incident was reported to have left nine persons dead, but only 5 bodies were recovered by the Liberia National Coast Guard of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).Tawah Tamba,22, a survivor from Wednesday’s capsized canoe of the Du River in FirestoneAnother survivor spoken to, Miss Taywah Tamba, age 22, said she had gone on the day of the incident to register with the Harbel Community College when the canoe capsized.Meanwhile, citizens of Margibi County are commending District #1 Representative, Tilberosa S. Tarwonpeh, for purchasing life jackets for them. They said that had it not been for the life jackets he bought for them, all of the passengers on the canoe would have died.Residents in the area are compelled to travel via canoe to cross from one area to another since the collapse of the Du River Bridge in June last year.“We are compelled to take the risk in using canoes to cross and go to Harbel market to buy food for our families, because it is very costly for us to use commercial motorbikes, which charge us between L$350.00 to L$400.00, just to get us there. The same amount is also paid when returning,” most residents, who were spoken to, revealed.At the same time, Margibi County Inspector Moses Gbankpala says Margibi County is now turning into a “flood-prone” county following the rainy season.Mr. Gankpala said since 2014, Margibi County has always experienced floods and other incidents of disaster.He is urging citizens of Margibi County to take every precautionary measure when crossing rivers, especially during the rainy season.“This year alone, the flood is too much in the county and is causing serious problems for residents, especially in flood-affected areas,” Mr. Gbankpala further stated.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgLeopards had a chance to go up level with arch rivals Gor Mahia at the apex of the standings, but at a time when they had increased pressure on the brewers to get a result, Wahome struck the second of his brace with 15 minutes left on the clock.It wasn’t really the most ideal of comebacks for Andika, making his first appearance for Ingwe since their 1-1 draw with Fosa Juniors in a CAF Confederations Cup in Bukhungu on February 2.The shot-stopper was to blame for both goals, and AFC’s numerical chop to 10 men.Andika’s effort to clear a back pass from Mike Kibwage in the sixth minute ended in Otieno making a block that saw the ball bounce into the net.The second, though partly his blame, was more of Robinson Kamura’s burden. The defender making a start ahead of the injured Salim Abdallah played a short back pass to Andika with Otieno intercepting, forcing the keeper to sweep him down.He left the pitch in tears having been sent off for the challenge and behind him, left a penalty slotted home by Otieno.Tusker FC’s Robert Achema and AFC Leopards’ Marvin Nabwire chase after the ball during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Kericho Stadium on April 2, 2018After going down early in the sixth minute, AFC tried to make amends with Whyvonne Isuza trying his luck with a flying shot from distance that was however aptly collected by David Okello in the Tusker goal.Almost immediately, skipper Duncan Otieno also attempted to draw the two sides level with a shot from the same range, but he wasn’t lucky enough, the ball flying wide.AFC’s surge in the game was punctured off on the half hour mark with Otieno slotting the penalty after the moment of madness between Kamura and keeper Andika.Having lost Andika to a red card, coach Kitambi had to make a sub and striker Henry Uche making a rare start for the side was sacrificed for Jairus Adira whose first order of duty was to prevent Otieno’s penalty. However, he was sent the wrong way for a 2-0 score.With a numerical disadvantage and an uphill task of clawing back two goals, AFC Leopards doubled their effort and saw their toil bear fruit five minutes to the break when Marvin Omondi was brought down inside the box by Lloyd Wahome.Left back Isaac Oduro stepped forward and calmly converted.Otieno had two late chances to get the two goal cushion back for the brewers, first sending a shot over after beating Kibwage to the ball at the edge of the box while his second effort coming at the end of a counter attack saw Adira making a save.On the other end, Baker Lukooya’s flying header went straight to Okello after the Ugandan winger sprung up to connect to an Oduro delivery from the left.As if AFC’s day couldn’t get worse, left back Oduro limped off injured having soldiered on with a groin problem he picked up midway through the second half. He was replaced by Brian Marita as Kitambi sought an all out attack.Tusker stretched their lead on the hour mark when an unmarked Wahome made amends for giving away the penalty, rising high to head in a cross from Peter Nzuki who had just come on for Mathew Tayo Odongo.But, the marks that this game was set for a dramatic end were all clear when just two minutes later, Whyvonne Isuza glanced in a header unmarked from a Marita cross.AFC piled pressure on the brewers, looking for the elusive equalizer and they almost came close when Marita’s cross found Odera at the backpost, but he couldn’t connect it on target.In an effort to clear away, defender Justine Omary banged his body against the upright and was brought off for Eugene Asike.Tusker stamped the victory with 15 minutes left when Wahome was quickest to react to a rebound after Adira failed to hold on to a stinging freekick from Collins Shivachi.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tusker FC players celebrate one of their four goals against AFC Leopards during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Kericho Stadium on April 2, 2018KERICHO, Kenya, Apr 2- Dennis Kitambi’s run of four consecutive wins as AFC Leopards care-taker coach was brought to a screeching halt on Monday evening after losing 4-2 to 11-time champions Tusker FC at the Kericho Stadium.Ingwe played almost 60 minutes of the game with 10 men after goalkeeper Gabriel Andika was sent off in the first half. A brace each from Timothy Otieno and Lloyd Wahome gave Tusker their second win of the season, one that propelled them to 11th in the standings.last_img read more

first_imgAfter becoming a household name in South Africa as the lovable Bart in the SABC2 soap drama 7de Laan, actor Neil Sandilands is set to become a household name in the United States, landing regular roles in The 100 and a new series, Hap & Leonard.South African actor Neil Sandilands, best known for his role in the soapie 7de Laan is currently starring in two US television series. (Image: Sundance Channel)CD AndersonSandilands went to Los Angeles in 2007 to try his luck on the notoriously competitive acting circuit. In 2010, he featured in an episode of House MD, but soon ran out of luck. Returning to South Africa to star in a number of popular Afrikaans films, including the award-winning drama Die Ballade van Robbie de Wee, he returned to Hollywood in 2014, determined to make his mark.<br/>NEIL SANDILANDS REEL from Neil Sandilands on Vimeo.“I had to revert to other disciplines such as directing and post-production and sometimes built fences for my neighbours or some other unmentionable activities to simply keep the wolf at bay,” Sandilands told News24.ICYMI: “The 100′ Casts Neil Sandilands in Recurring Role for Season 3— Twilightish (@Twilightish) July 24, 2015In January 2015, he had a recurring role on the 1980s-themed spy drama The Americans, which helped to boost his CV. From that, he landed two more regular roles on the teen sci-fi drama The 100 and a new series produced by Robert Redford’s Sundance TV channel called Hap & Leonard. It starts on 2 March 2016 in the US.While Sandilands struggled with rejection in Hollywood, describing the casting process as an “unforgiving craft”, his slow-burning tenacity has eventually paid off. “There’s no manual,” he explains about being an unknown actor in the Hollywood casting machine. “It is an inexact, non-verifiable science. I simply try to give it my all and be as best prepared as possible. I’m always off-book (not reading from the script). if you strike out on 99 half-truths, you may just sneak one moment of clarity past them.” Which is how he got the role on The 100.The 100Neil Sandilands – The 100 from Neil Sandilands on Vimeo.In The 100, a series about delinquent teenagers sent back to Earth 97 years after the apocalypse, Sandilands plays the role of Titus, political adviser and mythological flame-keeper of the Grounder organisation. He stars alongside other regular TV character actors such as Isaiah Washington (Grey’s Anatomy) and Paige Turco (Person of Interest).Reaction to Sandilands’ appearance on The 100 on South African television last month ignited Twitter, proving how popular his character on 7de Laan was locally:@njwsandilands when i saw your first episode of @cwthe100 me and my brother both shouted at the same time: Bart!

first_imgDubai, Jun 21 (PTI) Giants India will start firm favourites when they lock horns with arch-rivals Pakistan in the opening game of the inaugural six-nation ‘Kabaddi Masters Dubai 2018’ here tomorrow. The tournament will provide an excellent opportunity for Asian countries India, Pakistan, Iran and Korea to get battle-ready for the Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, starting August 18. India are the defending champions and have won gold in every edition of the tournament since the sport was inducted in the main roster in the 1990 Asiad. “Asian Games will once again have Iran, Pakistan, and Korea among other teams and this tournament will be like a semi-final. It will be a good opportunity for preparation,” India coach Srinivas Reddy said. India are clubbed with Pakistan and newcomers Kenya in group A, while group B features Iran, Republic of Korea and Argentina with top two teams making the semifinals. ‘Flying raider’ Ajay Thakur will lead India’s challenge after returning at the helm at the expense of longstanding captain Anup Kumar. Under Thakur, India beat Pakistan in successive matches en route to clinch the Asian Championship in Iran a year ago. Besides Thakur, the Indian team also has quality raiders in Rahul Chaudhari, Pardeep Narwal, Rohit Kumar, Rishank Devadiga and Monu Goyat in their ranks. In Deepak Hooda, Manjeet Chhillar, Surender Nada and Girish Ernak India also boast of top-class all-rounders and defenders to lend a perfect balance to the side. The second match of the opening day will see 2016 World Cup finalists Iran take on Republic of Korea.advertisement Two-time Asian Games runners-up Iran will be favourites to top group B and would look to challenge heavyweights India down the line. Iran have lost to India thrice in the final of the Kabaddi World Cup (2004, 2007 and 2016) and the six-nation meet will provide an excellent opportunity to reignite their rivalry. All eyes would be on Argentina who are new to the sport and their president Ricardo Acuna said: “The introduction of kabaddi in Argentina has redefined sports participation. This will surely be a moment of reckoning for Argentina’s kabaddi talent.” The event, organised by the International Kabaddi Federation in partnership with Star India Pvt Ltd, will likely witness the emergence of new talents. “Kabaddi Masters Dubai 2018 is our first step in that direction and will elevate the stature of our sport considerably. We are thankful to the Dubai Sports Council as well as Star India for their strong role in making this happen,” IKF president Janardan Singh said.
