The ‘Plot’

first_imgUnity Party Chairman, Sen. Varney Sherman, believes the Supreme Court’s involvement in electoral-related disputes of the senatorial election in Grand Cape Mount County last December was a “Machination to keep him off the President Pro-Tempore election.”Sherman was taken to court by rival candidate, Dr. Fodee  Kromah, of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) after the December 2014 poll results did not favor the opposition candidate.The High Court then placed a ‘Stay Order’ on the process and instructed the Elections Commission not to the certify Sherman and several others in a similar situation.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer, the Grand Cape Mount County Senator for the first time spoke on the controversies between the High Court and NEC over the disputed election results.According to him, the law suit against him was more about keeping his potential candidacy away from the political process on Capitol Hill than a legal matter.Though Sherman declined to name the plotters behind his political obstructions, he could neither dismiss nor name his party’s flag bearer, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf,  of being the mastermind.Asked who was behind his allegation, the Senate’s Judiciary Committee Chairman responded with another question: “How could I have known that?”He noted that seeing him as a political heavy weight, his opponents felt his presence in the process could have caused some damages to other candidates.“I don’t know whether the President was the one behind this or not, but I’m the chairman of the party and if there should be anything, I think the President should have supported me.”“Did the President support you?” Daily Observer asked. “The President didn’t have to go campaigning for me because I didn’t invite her.“The President cannot speak Vai, Mende or Gola.  So why would she go campaigning for me in Grand Cape Mount.“I was comfortable with the campaign over there; so I didn’t need the President to visit the region. Maybe because I didn’t invite her, that’s why she didn’t go there.  I was comfortable,” Cllr. Sherman said confidently.Said Sherman, “Pray tell me, if the President were to have gone to Cape Mount, what would she have contributed? As I said, she doesn’t speak the local languages, so what would she have told the people?”He acknowledged Vice President Joseph N. Boakai’s visit to the county on his campaign trail, but said he did not invite him either.  However, the Veep participated in the campaign.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Zuagele as an educator and a stern disciplinarian, adding, “In these capacities, there can be no denial that he impacted a lot of us who attended the Ganta Mission during those days.”The late Zuagele was among the first Nimbaians to accept the Christian faith.

Bank teller robbed in minibus

first_imgA teller of a city bank has been left traumatised after she was attacked and robbed in a minibus by a lone bandit at Agricola, Greater Georgetown.The 20-year-old woman, of Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), was relieved of her mobile phone about 13:45h on Monday. Guyana Times was told that the woman boarded the bus at the Route 32 minibus park. She then took out her cellular phone and was texting someone. A male passenger who was seated in the back seat of the minibus and holding a bird cage then requested a stop at Agricola.As he exited the minibus, he grabbed the woman’s phone – an iPhone 7 – valued over $100,000.Speaking with this publication, the young woman relayed that in an attempt to save her phone, she held onto the perpetrator’s hand and even bit him in the process.“It was so unexpected that he was able to grab the phone from my hand, but I tried to hold onto it, he was stronger though, so I bit him, but he still pulled away and ran out of the bus,” she related.She said that she was even more distressed, since no other passenger in the minibus attempted to assist her, even as she pleaded with the driver of the minibus to drive behind the suspect. “He ran out and I started to yell, but nobody tried to help … a man was riding on a bicycle, so I screamed and told the man to stop him, but the man ignored me … I then asked the bus driver to drive behind him, but he refused,” the woman related.She said that she went to the Providence Police Station where she attempted to file a report, but was sent to the Ruimveldt Police Station. Police are investigating.last_img read more

Luke Shaw blasts ‘horrendous’ Man United display

first_img0Shares0000Luke Shaw acknowledges the fans after Manchester United’s 3-1 Premier League defeat to West Ham © AFP / Ian KINGTONLondon, United Kingdom, Oct 1 – Manchester United’s misfiring players need to take responsibility for a “horrendous” display against West Ham that leaves them languishing in 10th place in the Premier League, defender Luke Shaw said.United’s 3-1 defeat at the London Stadium on Saturday was their third in just seven league games and has left them nine points adrift of leaders Manchester City, as speculation mounts over the future of manager Jose Mourinho. Left-back Shaw apologised to supporters for United’s “awful” performance and said the players need to take a hard look at themselves while midfielder Juan Mata said he understood fans’ frustrations.“If you want the truth I think it was honestly horrendous,” Shaw told reporters. “We didn’t look like a team that was going to beat West Ham. I think individually and as a team we were awful.“That’s not good enough. It’s hard to take and we’re sorry to the fans for what they saw. It was not good enough from a Man Utd team with all the talent we have.”United’s reverse, which came after their midweek League Cup exit at the hands of Derby, means they have made their worst start in the league for 29 years.In addition to the problems on the pitch, Mourinho confirmed last week that Paul Pogba would not captain the side again after he had implicitly criticised the manager by urging the team to attack more.United’s haul of 10 points from seven games matches their return at this stage of the season under David Moyes in 2013-14 but their inferior goal difference means this is their worst top-flight start since they picked up seven points in 1989-90.Despite the growing pressure on the manager, Shaw believes it is the players who need to shoulder the blame.“We have to look at ourselves as players,” he said. “We’re the ones who go on the pitch. The manager isn’t on the pitch, is he?”Mata has scaled back his regular blog in the midst of a turbulent spell for the club as Mourinho prepares his team to face Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday.“Today, my blog post is shorter than usual,” the former Valencia player said. “In fact, it isn’t really a time for posts. I want to thank all of you who support us during these tough times. I understand your frustrations.“The upcoming game against Valencia is a special one for me, but above all it is another chance to get back to winning ways.”Manchester United’s first open training session since a frosty exchange between Pogba and Mourinho last week passed without incident.Pogba, hauled off in the second half on Saturday, entered the training pitch with Sergio Romero and warmly greeted Mourinho’s coaching staff, having given Nemanja Matic a hug.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Bush makes stealthy trip into Pakistan during night

first_imgISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Welcomed with military pomp and ceremony, President George W. Bush began a mission today to show solidarity with this Islamic nation and support Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf’s war-on-terror alliance with the United States. On a hazy morning, Bush and Musharraf sat under a green canopy in a courtyard of the presidential palace as a military band played the national anthems of both countries. Soldiers on horseback bearing lances stood to the side and three rows of blue-coated troops were at attention. Continuing the heavy security that greeted him on arrival Friday night, Bush’s motorcade was protected by three helicopters that circled overhead as he rode from the heavily fortified U.S. Embassy compound, where he spent the night, to see Musharraf. After the welcoming ceremony, the two leaders held talks, exchanging handshakes and smiles for the cameras. After conferring with Musharraf, Bush was meeting with business leaders and attending a state dinner. A huge ballroom at the presidential palace was already decked out in the morning for the evening’s formality – under 11 brightly lit chandeliers, tables were adorned with orchids draped from candelabra and elaborate crystal stemware. By attending a cricket match – a passion of Pakistanis – and showcasing American contributions to Pakistan after a devastating earthquake in October, Bush also hoped to boost the U.S. image among Muslims. Bush said he would talk with Musharraf about Pakistan’s “vital cooperation in the War on Terror and our efforts to foster economic and political development so we can reduce the appeal of radical Islam.” In a farewell speech in New Delhi, Bush ran into trouble when he praised Pakistan as “a force for freedom and moderation in the Arab world.” The White House hastened to correct Bush’s reference to Pakistan as an Arab nation, and said he meant to say Muslim. Bush’s trip brought renewed attention on the frustrating manhunt for Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader blamed for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America. Bin Laden and his followers are believed to be in hiding in the porous border area of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Earlier this week, Bush said it was simply a matter of when – not if – bin Laden was brought to justice. While many people here view the United States with mistrust, Pakistan has been an important U.S. ally in the Muslim world. The Pakistani government says it has arrested about 700 al-Qaida suspects in the past four years, including Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks. Even so, key terror leaders are still thought to be at large within its borders. Musharraf seized power seven years ago in a bloodless coup and has reneged on a promise to relinquish his military post. But Musharraf endeared himself to Bush after the 9-11 attacks when he switched Pakistan’s allegiance from the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and supported Washington in the U.S.-led war against its rulers. Bush has promised to talk with Musharraf about the need for more democratic reforms. Pakistan has been roiled by anti-Western protests against Prophet Muhammad cartoons, which have left at least five people dead. Bush has called on governments to stop violent demonstrations, and at the same time has urged the media to use restraint with material that might be considered offensive. Pakistanis also were enraged by a U.S. missile strike in January targeting al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, who was believed to be attending a dinner party at a village in a northwestern region near the Afghan border. Al-Zawahri apparently wasn’t there, and the missile killed 13 residents, including women and children. Bush was expected to face demands here for equal treatment with India, which signed a landmark nuclear deal with the United States this week providing nuclear reactors, technology and other material to New Delhi in exchange for its acceptance of international safeguards. U.S. officials said Pakistan will not get the same reward, considering that just two years ago Pakistan’s leading nuclear scientist, A.Q. Khan, was exposed as the chief of a lucrative black market in weapons technology that had supplied Iran, Libya and North Korea. The government denied any knowledge of his proliferation activities. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Two helicopters and a motorcade waited for the president at the airport, but it was impossible to tell which ferried him away. Anti-American sentiment runs deep here, and protests by thousands flared in cities across the country in anticipation of Bush’s visit. More were planned for today. A six-party opposition religious alliance called for black flags to be flown over homes and was staging demonstrations in Lahore, Karachi and Quetta. Pakistani police also detained Imran Khan, best known for leading Pakistan’s cricket team to a 1992 World Cup victory, ahead of a protest planned by his small opposition party, according to Khan’s spokesman. Khan has often sided with hardline Islamic parties in voicing fierce criticism of the U.S.-led War on Terror and Musharraf’s rule. The danger from terrorist attacks remained. A day before Bush’s arrival, an American diplomat was killed in a suicide car-bombing at a U.S. consulate in the southern city of Karachi, a hotbed of Islamic militancy. last_img read more

Jose Mourinho could rest stars for Arsenal clash to boost Europa League bid

first_imgJose Mourinho’s determination to bring a problematic season to an historic end means the Manchester United manager will pull out all the stops to secure a place in the Europa League final.Three underwhelming years under firstly David Moyes and then Louis van Gaal saw the Old Trafford board turn to the Portuguese last summer.EFL Cup and Community Shield triumphs in his first campaign have been tempered by Premier League struggles, with Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Swansea leaving United in fifth – a point shy of Manchester City with four tough fixtures remaining.A trip to Arsenal awaits on Sunday and Mourinho could rotate his side given the match comes between European semi-final clashes against Celta Vigo, with Europa League glory offering Champions League qualification and a place in the history books.Only Ajax, Bayern Munich and Juventus have won all three major UEFA trophies, including the now-defunct European Cup Winners’ Cup, as well as the Club World Cup or the Intercontinental Cup.United never tasted trophy success in the UEFA Cup, which evolved to become the Europa League from the 2009/10 season.Mourinho said ahead of Thursday’s first leg against Celta in Spain: “I know that it is the only competition that Manchester United as a club have never won and it would be great to close the circle and say, ‘We are a club that won every single competition in the football world’.“Thinking about us as a team, I think it would be a good achievement with so many problems we have and would allow us to be back to Champions League next season.“So we have to try, that’s what we are going to do, and honestly the Europa League for us now becomes more important.“Of course it depends on the result, it depends on the way we analyse the situation tomorrow after the match, but if we have to rest players next weekend, we are going to do that.”Had it not been for a lack of cutting edge and a Premier League-high 14 draws, United would not be worrying about a top-four finish.Mourinho also believes injuries and fatigue have had a lot to do with their struggles, meaning the return of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones after being injured on England duty in March could be too little, too late on the domestic front.“In relation to the Europa League, it is very important they come in time,” Mourinho said, having also confirmed Paul Pogba was back.“We have two matches in one week against Celta. It is important to have everybody back.“In relation to the Premier League, I think it is too late because in the past month of April we played nine matches – seven of them in the Premier League and we had too many problems, we had too many players absent.“Because of that, we had players that had to play 750, 800 minutes of football and we paid the price.“We played against fresh teams and we were in accumulation (of fatigue).“At this moment, the perspective is different because the Europa League becomes even more important for us.“And it is good to have three players back, that gives us more options.”Eric Bailly is also “ready to play” having come off against Swansea, while Marouane Fellaini’s ban only affects domestic matches.Luke Shaw has joined Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo and Tim Fosu-Mensah in the treatment room, but Juan Mata could make his first appearance in almost seven weeks after recovering from a groin injury.“Mata was injured for a while but he’s ready to play,” Mourinho said of the Spaniard, who was on the bench on Sunday.“He’s experienced, he’s one of the few players that played European semi-finals and finals, so it’s nothing new for him.“The only risk is he probably can’t play 90 minutes, but that’s the risk if he starts he doesn’t finish the game, if he comes from the bench then it’s no problem for him.“If selected, he can play perfectly tomorrow.”Mata and fellow Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera have warned of the threat posed by Celta, despite the side 11th in LaLiga losing three straight matches.Much of that is down to rotation with their first major European semi-final looming large and Mourinho knows a tough night lies ahead at Balaidos.“Celta for some reason is here,” the United boss said. “It is as simple as that.“To win a competition with so many teams with very good balance – almost every team in the knockout phases were teams of the same level – they managed to be in the semi-final. I think it says everything.“Because of their situation in LaLiga, their situation is comfortable. They manage also to think just about the Europa League, to rest players, to be at the maximum of their condition, so it is a difficult match for us.” 1 The Portuguese boss has his eyes on European success last_img read more

BOGUS CHAINSAWS AND GENERATORS NOW ON SALE IN DONEGAL WARN GARDAI

first_imgGardai say they now have information that bogus chainsaws and generators are now being sold across Donegal.Sgt Paul Wallace has issued warning.A number of weeks ago local Gardai issued a warning to the public regarding the possible advertising such items to unsuspecting customers.These saws and generators are now being offered for sale local Gardai have learned this morning. Items are being sold out of the back of vans by well dressed gentlemen with midlands accents who are moving throughout the county calling door to door.At least one business in Donegal Town was offered such items last weekend.The advice is ‘Buyer beware if it seems to be good to be true it usually is! ‘ warned Local Garda Crime Prevention Officer Sergeant Paul Wallace.‘The information we are receiving from the public is that these items are in sealed boxes with brand leader logos for example Honda and Husqvarna but these are replicas not the proper product. They are sold on a bartering method starting off at say… €1200 with the final price being as low as €200/ 250 so there is a message there. “Don’t be conned, purchase locally where you are sure of what you are getting with a guarantee and back up that’s the advise plain and simple,” Sgt Wallace said.Chainsaws for example offered on the market will be copy replicas of established market leaders but only have a operating life of only 40/ 45 hours. There is no back up, guarantee, quality and compliance with health and safety standards may also be in doubt.The public should not to be duped by advertisements by unscrupulous persons who use authentic sales platforms to advertise these items.The quality construction and design of equipment such as a chainsaw or an electricity generator is of paramount importance from an health and safety point of view and purchasers or users should not be ‘conned’ into purchase of sub standard equipment that does not reach industry and European norms.It is important for the public to be aware that ‘ buyer beware’ as if you purchase equipment which is useless there is usually no comeback Gardai would like to thank the public for contacting them and being vigilant in their communities.Further Crime Prevention information – www.garda.ieBOGUS CHAINSAWS AND GENERATORS NOW ON SALE IN DONEGAL WARN GARDAI was last modified: May 13th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:chainsawsdonegalGardaigeneratorsSgt Paul Wallacelast_img read more
