Minister Kamara Pledges Lasting Relations with Egypt

first_imgForeign Affairs Minister Marjon Kamara told a gathering of diplomats and local and foreign businessmen at the observance of Egypt’s National Day on Tuesday that Liberia wishes good lasting relations with the Arab Republic of Egypt.Held at the residence of Ambassador Alaa Issa in Monrovia, Minister Kamara, in her remarks, extolled the bilateral relations with Egypt and called for a further strengthening of Egypt–Liberia cooperation in the economic, agricultural and educational fields that could boost the already sisterly relations.Earlier, Ambassador Issa explained the importance of the National Day to Egyptians and said the gathering of diplomats and foreign and local businessmen at the occasion underscores the importance they have attached to a celebration that is dear to Egyptians.Although the National Day of Egypt falls on July 23, it is celebrated at various dates in July, embassy officials said.The National Day of Egypt is also known as Revolution Day and it is celebrated to commemorate the establishment of a republican government in the country and to remember the same day in 1952, when the Egyptian Republic was first formulated after the overthrow of a monarchy. It is an important annual national holiday for Egyptians to remember hard-fought battles to reclaim their freedom, and the successful end of the revolution by completely abolishing the constitutional monarchy.According to Egyptian Embassy officials, Egyptians across the world come together on this day, every year, to remember the 1952 Revolution, when a group of young army officers formed the “Free Officer’s Movement” led by Muhammed Naguib, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Abdel Hakim Amer and Anwar Al Sadat. They deposed the autocratic and pro-British monarch King Farouk I, thus abolishing the last constitutional monarchy and finally establishing a nationalist government. “Naguib subsequently became the first president of the republic nation. Egypt became a great example for its bloodless independence struggle and inspired many African nations to follow the same,” according to an Embassy official.The revolution changed the face of Egypt dramatically allowing free trade, restoration of civil rights and a fair democratic government. The economy of the country flourished immensely. “So the National day of July 23rd is a public holiday for Egyptians to remember the reinstatement of people’s absolute rights, although Egypt obtained its independence from the British in 1922,” an Embassy official said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Woman with cocaine strapped to thighs busted

first_imgA 55-year-old woman was busted with 3.378 kilograms of cocaine strapped to her thighs at the Eugene F Correia International Airport, Ogle, East Coast Demerara, on Monday afternoon.CANU in a statement said that Sandra Angela Profitt of Lot 9 John Fernandes Drive, West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, was sitting in the departure area waiting to board a LIAT flight destined for Barbados when she was intercepted. According to CANU, a search conducted on the woman revealed the cocaine duct-taped to each of her upper thighs. She was arrested and is being processed for court.Only on Saturday last, a man was nabbed with in excess of 80 cocaine pellets while inside of an East Coast Demerara (ECD) hotel. The pellets weighed 900 grams.According to a source, the pellets were intended to be swallowed by another person, who would then board an international flight that was leaving Guyana later in the day.Guyana Times understands that after the man was nabbed, he led investigators to the ECD residence of another male. Ranks then swooped down on the house and a search revealed an unlicensed firearm along with ammunition. As a result, two other persons were also taken into custody as Police launched a search for another suspect.The man, who is yet to be arrested by the police, is believed to be the mastermind behind the cocaine pellets that were intended to be smuggled.last_img read more

Sofa beats Shabana to clinch Jamhuri Cup

first_imgSubstitute John Avire scored the second for Batoto ba Mungu before Michael Oduor drove the final nail on Shabana’s coffin from a sweeping counter attacking play from the 2009 league champions.“It was a good match to try out different combinations and systems ahead of the weekend match against Bandari. Of course on top of it, it’s always good to win a trophy and we are happy,” Sofapaka boss Melis Medo said after the match.Sofapaka FC’s Cliff Kasuti wheels away from Shabana’s Michael Otieno during their Jamhuri Day Cup match at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on December 12, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluShabana was the better side in the opening quarter of an hour, but they didn’t have much to show for their possession and fancy passing, cheered on by a good crowd that had come out to support them.Sofapaka had the first sting at goal after 18 minutes, Mico Justin trying his luck with a curling effort from the edge of the area but Shabana keeper Tom Muthomi pushed it away for a corner.Immediately on the other end, the NSL side broke the deadlock thanks to some shambolic defending from Sofapaka, Oduor curling the ball beyond Richard Aimo after the ball landed on his path unmarked on the left.The goal injected some confidence into the second-tier side and they kept possession more. However, Sofapaka were always dangerous when they had possession of the ball.On the half hour mark, Oduor came close for Batoto ba Mungu with a rasping shot from distance which keeper Muthomi once again turned behind for a corner. Five minutes later, Dennis Odhiambo also came close with a freekick but the busy Shabana keeper was equal to the task.Sofapaka FC’s Humphrey Okoti wheels away from Shabana’s Hamisi Hadi during their Jamhuri Day Cup match at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on December 12, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluSofapaka went level at the stroke of halftime when Waruru converted from the spot after Piston Mutamba was pushed from behind by Andrew Ongwae as he tried to control a ball.In the second half the experienced Sofapaka side came in much better with Medo making changes including pulling out Mico for Tom Adwar while Waruru and Mutamba came off for Avire and Aswani respectively.Avire made his presence felt in the 63rdminute with a well powered header off an Oduor cross.On the other end, Sofapaka keeper Aimo was forced to work, twice saving from Moses Arita and a freekick from Ongwa.Sofapaka though put the game to rest with nine minutes left when Asieche who had come on for Dennis Odhiambo engineered a super counter feeding off Oduor who took a one-time shot to beat Muthomi.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Sofapaka FC players celebrate after clinching the Jamhuri Day Cup at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on December 12, 2018.

RUN DONEGAL WOMEN’S 5K AT GLENVEAGH: THE RESULTS AND THE PICTURES!

first_imgOn what can only be described as a miserable morning weather wise 254 women braved the wind and rain for the inaugural Rundonegal Womens 5k held in Glenveagh.The money raised went to charities nominated by the incumbent Donegal Lord Mayor Cora Harvey –  the benefitting charities Diabetes and Strengthening Families programme.Cora was indeed out their taking part joined by family members and all were set on their way by race director Grace Boyle pretty much on time at 11 am. Some chose to run, others walked and the best on the day was Letterkenny’s Noreen Mc Gettigan ahead from Clonmany teacher Teresa Doherty and Ballybofey athlete Noleen Porter 3rd.This is an event that surely will grow in the years ahead and with Donegal Co Co on board in support it offers an exciting prospect also too in years to come as the intention is that each incoming Mayor will lend their support and nominate a charity.A big thank you to the staff at Glenveagh and sponsors Lucozade and the usual support team without whom these community events just do not happen.  Rundonegal Womans 5K

Girl testifies sex offender touched her

first_imgA 10-year-old girl testified Wednesday that a convicted child molester had inappropriately touched her when she was taking a bath in a Glendora home. The Ontario resident said Michael Stewart Mullicane, who if convicted faces a third-strike conviction, came into the bathroom while she was bathing and fondled her. “He touched me in a bad way. It made me feel weird,” the girl testified in Pomona Superior Court. In opening statements, prosecuting attorney Jennifer McDonald said Mullicane later told the girl to keep the encounter a secret. The girl said she didn’t tell her mother because she thought she would get mad and punish her. The incident happened at Mullicane’s parents’ Glendora home in June after he went swimming with the girl and her brother. The girl’s mother and brother were occupied during the time the incident allegedly occurred. At times Wednesday, the girl smiled during her testimony or fidgeted in her chair and played with her necklace. The girl’s mother, who was 36 when she met Mullicane through a dating service, testified her daughter denied he touched her inappropriately. Mullicane’s attorney, Stuart A. Holmes, said proper protocol may not have been followed in questioning a child alleging molestation. In his opening statement, he also said the fifth-grader had a reputation for lying among neighborhood friends and a teacher. The girl’s mother, who dated Mullicane a few times before bringing her daughter and son to his house, admitted her daughter had lied in the past. She also testified finding Mullicane with her naked daughter made her upset. Mullicane, 48, facing 25 years to life in prison, was convicted in 1977 of molesting two girls and again in 1983 for molesting boys ages 7 to 13 when he was a Little League coach. Glendora city officials tried to have him removed when he returned to the city in 2003, but a judge denied the request. Mullicane remains incarcerated without bail. He may testify on his own behalf, his attorney said. The trial resumes today. marianne.love@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2108 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Kurtenbach: Don’t write off the Warriors just yet

first_img Warriors … OAKLAND — I see it happening all around.
