He wouldn’t comment when asked whether Rakhimov would consider stepping down to smooth relations with the IOC.The IOC could try to derecognize AIBA and host its own Olympic boxing event without Rakhimov. Some national boxing officials have tried to gather support for such a move but face threats of disciplinary action from AIBA.Virgets alleged the breakaway was led by the Kazakhstan Boxing Federation, whose candidate lost to Uzbekistan’s Rakhimov in November’s presidential vote.

‘Corruption is Liberians’ Daily Bread’

first_imgThe Archbishop of the Catholic Church of Liberia, Archbishop Lewis Ziegler, said corruption has eaten up the fabric of the Liberian society.The Catholic Archbishop also stated that it is becoming the daily bread for Liberians at all levels.The prelate said corruption begins within families and is carried to the pinnacle of society; the governance of the state.He served as the keynote speaker at the National Fast and Prayer Day service organized by the Liberia Council of Churches on Friday April 11, at the Providence Baptist Church on Broad and Ashmun Streets.Archbishop Ziegler noted that greed and selfishness, among other evil vices, are leading the nation to a place where its people are discussing same sex marriage, while others are depriving their fellow citizens of their livelihood.Along with those vices, the Archbishop also added that Liberians take corruption, greed, selfishness and homosexuality for granted and these vices are hurting the country and holding it back.“As a nation that has God as its Father, how can we be discussing same sex marriage? Where are we going as a nation? We are calling temptation upon ourselves, corruption has become our daily bread,” the Catholic prelate said.Archbishop Ziegler indicated that the greed and selfishness of Liberians, especially its political leaders, is compelling a vast majority of the population to fast continuously and without choice, because they do not have food to eat.“Today you and I are fasting, we are praying, what are we going to do tomorrow? What are we going to do in our offices? In the market places, in the streets, or wherever we find ourselves? Are we going back to business as usual? If that is the case, then there is no need for fasting. Yes, we are fasting for only one day, or we may have fasted throughout this week; but that is not enough. What about our brothers and sisters who are compelled to fast every day, they are compelled because they do not have the means.”“We need to be grateful to God, the Almighty Father, we need to seek pardon for our many sins, we must pray for good and healthy living in this country. Not only pray, but we must also work towards it,” Archbishop Ziegler urged his fellow countrymen and womenThe cleric said more attention should be given to the issue of hatred amongst Liberians because it is making citizens poor and hungry.  He said, “Let us pay attention to the issue of hatred for one another, to the issue of lying on one another; this is a very serious problem in our country.”“The issue of corruption that has eaten up our society stems from the wicked words that we say about others. It comes from the self-centeredness that prevents us from responding to the needs of others, and the greed that keeps all we do only for ourselves”, said the Catholic Prelate.He added, “Because of greed some Liberians do not care about others and are allowing others to be poor and go hungry. Why are they poor? Why are they hungry? We may excuse ourselves and say they are lazy to work, that is not always the case. Why don’t we question if we are the ones being too greedy? Are we too selfish to see? Is it not because we are so self-centered?” he asked.He continued, “For example, if you use funds given to you that were meant to be used for the common good, do you not realize that you are depriving thousands of others the good things in life?”The Archbishop said it is a common practice for people to take away what is meant for the majority while leaving others in poverty. “If you use drugs that were given to you so they can be used by hospitals and clinics, do you realize the number of people you are sending to their early graves? If you rape that poor little girl, that poor child, are you not aware that you have destroyed her life and many others? All of these actions, my dear brothers and sisters, are acts of greed. Because of greed we are selfish, because of selfishness, there is no love for God in our hearts,” the Archbishop lamented.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

She moved along the length of the banquet hall entertaining the guests and providing a great performance, which was rewarded with a round of applause. Though her sets were short, the performance was indeed great, by a great performer.Aside from her career as a musical artist, Aunty Miatta is also the founder and executive director of Obaa’s Girls Educational Outreach (OGEO), a non-profit organization she operates in Monrovia to promote the education and welfare of girls and women towards the socioeconomic development and empowerment of women in Africa. She also holds the portfolio of Goodwill Ambassador for Maternal Health and Child Care at the Ministry of Health, and is known to be a strong advocate of women’s rights and gender equality.In a brief interview backstage before coming out to provide her audience with a wonderful musical interlude, Aunty Miatta stated how happy and proud she was to accept an invitation to support Mrs. Moore and her organization, KEEP, who, like Obaa’s Girls EducationalOutreach, is also dedicated to the improvement of Liberian children through quality education.Prior to the keynote address delivered by the Minister of Public Works Honorable Gyude Moore, Board Chairman of KEEP Chantel Doe gave a special recognition to supporters of the organization, including several corporate sponsors. This was followed by testimonials from some of the children beneficiaries of KEEP’s programs, which include computer literacy training, after school tutorials and provision of educational supplies.

Bantam Flyers drop pair to Fort MacMurray

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The lack of 60 minute efforts haunted the Northern Metalic Bantam Flyers during their pair of games against Fort McMurray over the weekend.The Flyers trailed 3-0 after the 10 minute mark of the first period in Saturday’s game.

We deserve CAF/FIFA full membership, say Zanzibar

first_img“No one doesn’t want to get FIFA membership and at the moment, we are showing the world that we deserve that chance. It will be a great opportunity for our players to show what Zanzibar can do in global football and we can’t wait to get that chance,” Hemedi said.Prior to the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup, Zanzibar who are part of the Republic of Tanzania had not played a single competitive football game as a national team since the last Senior Challenge Cup in Ethiopia two years ago.Hemedi admits that it is depressing for the players and football fans back at home lacking the opportunity to play as a national team and hopes that soon enough they will earn that birthright.“This (CECAFA) is our only chance to prove our worth and show that we have talent in Zanzibar and players who can work. Hopefully it is going to catch someone’s attention” the tactician noted.Zanzibar head coach Suleiman ‘Morocco’ Hemedi confers with one of his assistants. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluThe team has done remarkably well at the ongoing Senior Challenge Cup and will be playing defending champions Uganda in the semi-final on Friday afternoon in Kisumu.They have played remarkably well, finishing second in Group A behind Kenya after losing their final match against Libya, but had been the first team to book a last four ticket.Their journey to Kenya wasn’t the smoothest. While other teams, including their brothers and neighbors Tanzania Mainland flew in to the country for the tournament, Zainzibar travelled by boat to Dar es Salaam then by bus to Machakos via Mombasa.“The good thing is that we have accepted ourselves the way we are. We are weak financially and we can’t afford all those fancy travels and allowances but we have organized ourselves very well even with the little that we have. We believe in ourselves and we want to get good results whatever the circumstances,” the tactician added.The coach also added that before they earn full FIFA status, more Zanzibar players should earn call ups to the main national team, Taifa Stars, after showing that they are up to task and can play equally well.Zanzibar left back Haji Mwinyi closes in on Tanzania Mainland’s Boniface Maganga during a CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluTanzanian mainland head coach Amy Ninje has meanwhile said Zanzibar has been one of the best teams in the tournament and has tipped them to lift the title.“Zanzibar is a big deal in this tournament and no one should underrate them. They will win this tournament without a problem. I have seen how they play and their dedication and I know they can do it,” Ninje said.Tanzania Mainland performed dismally, finishing bottom of Group A with a single point. Ninje who is one of the assistant coaches at the main national team has apologized to Tanzanians for the performance and took full responsibility for it.“Results have not been good and I am not happy. I apologize to all Tanzanians; we have done badly but we have learnt from our failures. I can’t blame the players they did their best. This was the group of death. We started well, but the second loss dropped our confidence, but it’s the nature of football,” the tactician who has worked in England with Hull City said.He says moving forward, the team should delve into deeper talent search to get younger players who are dynamic and can comfortably play fast, flowing football.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Zanzibar players line up before a match at the 2017 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Donegal man leads major drinks expansion into Ireland

first_imgA well-known Donegal man is leading a major expansion of a popular drinks brand into Ireland.Raphoe man Johnny Harte is leading the launch of Five Farms Irish Cream Liqueur into Ireland.Already available in 20 states in the US, the drink is a US-Irish joint venture between McCormick’s Distilling company in Missouri and drinks industry veteran Harte. To-date the partners have invested around €1m in developing the product.“We first started rolling out the drink in the US, and demand has been way beyond expectation,” Mr Harte said.“As this is a premium liqueur we want to be careful that the product is managed in the correct way and that we have a sustainable supply chain.”Johnny is the son of the late politician Paddy Harte and wife Rosaleen. Both Mr Harte and McCormick’s have equity in the product, and in addition, Mr Harte gets to tap into McCormick’s resources to develop the brand further.The product is crafted from single batches of cream sourced and produced in Co Cork, using the milk from five family run farms.The drink won the ‘Chairman’s Trophy’ at this year’s Ultimate Spirits Challenge, a global wine and spirits competition.Earlier this month Mr Harte, a Donegal native, was appointed to the board of the Alcohol Beverage Federation of Ireland.He previously served as chairman of the Irish Spirits Association.
