Martha’s Elbow Accident Victim Buried

first_imgThe remains of 39-year-old Bendu Konneh, killed on Saturday, November 8, were buried in her hometown of Manifah in Grand Cape Mount County.The mother of five’s traditional seven-day feast was held by family and friends on Sunday, November 23, at the family’s residence in St. Paul Bridge, Twe Farm, outside Monrovia. Eyewitnesses told the Daily Observer that Bendu Konneh died when a jeep, driven by a Fulani, veered off the road after coming from the compound of Martha’s Elbow, a popular motel.“First the driver struck a motorbike rider,” said Mr. Jenika Sirleaf, uncle of the deceased, “before desperately turning the jeep towards the direction where many people were standing.”He said the victim, who had alighted from a taxi few seconds before the accident had by then crossed the road towards her destination.“Like many people here at that evening, around 7.p.m. the jeep narrowly missed me, and when I turned around immediately I recovered I saw the jeep going towards the victim’s way.”He explained that when his niece apparently saw the screaming jeep coming her way, with the distressed driver unable to control it, she made an attempt to “run away from the advancing jeep to safety.”“But the jeep struck Bendu Konneh,” Uncle Sirleaf said, “and there was blood all over the place.”During the confusion the driver, yet to be identified,  sought safety at a nearby police depot, afraid that he could have been mobbed to death by the crowd that later rushed on the scene to assist the victim.Ms. Watta Konneh, a sister of the deceased, told the Daily Observer yesterday that the family heard from the unidentified driver from a Fulani elder, identified only as Jabbie, who presented the amount of L$5, 000 to the family which was rejected. “He later brought L$15,000 and despite some opposition from other family members, the money was accepted to help with the burial,” Ms. Konneh said.She said the family and the driver’s representative would be holding a meeting, after yesterday’s seven-day feast.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Pres. Sirleaf Opens PricewaterHouseCoopers

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has formally opened the offices of PricewaterHouseCooper (PwC) in Liberia after many years of absence from the Liberian market.In her remarks, the President stated that PwC – although established in the country long before the war – is not well known. However, she said it has taken on a new face since returning to the country two years ago.“It’s a good thing to be here today to be able to recognize a significant step in our growth of local institutions,” the President added.She further stated that she was glad that PwC, among whose core activities is auditing, has satisfied all the requirements of the Liberian law for it to be in operation in the country.President Sirleaf also expressed satisfaction that as PwC takes on a new phase in Liberia, it has involved one Liberian, Mr. Taweh Jefferson Veikai as its Country Senior Partner.Although she did not categorically cite the provisions in the Act creating the Liberian Institute of Public Accountants (LIPA), the President used the occasion to register her displeasure with some provisions in the Act. “But Arthur, I know you praised your Act, we are not very happy with some provisions of the Act. But as they say ‘all’s well that ends well,’ but there are provisions in that Act that have to be looked at,” the President stressed. Speaking earlier, Mr. Arthur Fumba, president of the Liberian Institute of Public Accountants, said he was grateful for the new Act, which now compels foreign firms of such nature that come to Liberia to be regulated by LIPA. He said he was happy that PwC has come to Liberia to help in the growth of the Liberian economy and Liberians themselves. “In times past, foreign accounting organizations only came to Liberia and after they had done their auditing without any regulation, they collected their monies, put them in their suitcases and flew out of the country without any help to Liberians. Please tell all other foreign firms that if they want our money let them come and stay with us,” he said. Also speaking, Mr. Taweh Jefferson Veikai, who now heads PwC’s office in Liberia, said PwC Liberia is a full member of the network of firms of PricewaterhouseCoopers International Limited and has unrestrained access to the global network’s vast resource base of proprietary knowledge, methodologies and experience. Mr. Veikai told the audience that as professional advisors, their core values include helping their clients solve complex business problems and aim to enhance their ability to build value, manage risk and improve performance. “We take pride in the fact that our services add value by helping to improve transparency, trust, and consistency of business processes. He disclosed that in Africa, PwC is the largest provider of professional services with close to 450 partners and 8,500 people located in 33 countries. He further stated that this enables PwC to provide its clients with seamless and consistent services wherever they are located on the continent.“PwC’s return to Liberia is a sign of the significant progress made by the Liberian government in attracting Foreign Direct Investment in an emerging economy. Liberia has a huge potential for growth due to its abundant natural resources and emerging markets,” he said.He further stated that there are immense potentials in several areas, particularly in Assurance, Tax, Advisory, Government, International Development Organizations and Global investments.“We look forward to playing a major role in improving the quality of life of the people of Liberia by opening new opportunities for local businesses as well as providing job opportunities for the talented young workforce,” Veikai added.However, he said their focus first is to quickly build relationships and offer valuable solutions to their clients, based on both their understanding of the Liberian economy and global trends so that clients can get ahead of the business curve, as they expect their global clients to invest and expand new markets in Liberia.He also disclosed that they have plans to recruit, develop and build the capacity of young Liberian professionals from across various educational backgrounds, including chartered accountancy, tax, advisory, law, management, and many others.“We are currently working closely with the Liberian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (LICPA) to develop industry ready professionals,” he further stated; adding: “We are here to build long term relationships with clients, people, and the communities in Liberia through our new office. Our plan is to build a team of PwC professionals by recruiting the best, brightest, and talented young individuals in Liberia and expanding their knowledge base so that they can support an environment that encourages more companies to grow and expand by providing industry insight and helping clients solve important problems.”Toward this drive, an official of PwC disclosed that they will be sending some Liberians to Nigeria for a two-year training program and that they were also glad to receive 15 young ladies from some of the universities, which sent them on an internship program.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

10,000 acres of rice under threat in Corentyne

first_imgRice farmers on the Corentyne, in Berbice, are in urgent need of water to save 10,000 acres of rice in the 52-74 Neighbourhood Democratic Council area. The regional administration’s irrigation pump has run out of fuel and the dam in now inaccessible to get fuel to the pumps.They are calling on the Water Users Association as the need for water grows by the day. Some farmers told this publication that they could lose up to 10 acres daily until water is pumped into the affected areas. However, the pumps are without fuel because of a new system implemented by the regional administration to get fuel to the pumps which are situated along the Canje River.Region Chairman David Armogan speaking on the matter said the decision to change the system did not come from the local regional administration.“The problem we have is that the boat which would normally take fuel into the Canje Creek area has to find additional money to operate. The management of the Berbice Bridge has told the owner of the boat that he has to provide marine insurance before he can cross the bridge. We all know that marine insurance is a very expensive insurance,” he pointed out.According to Armogan, the boat operator is being asked to pay $2 million for the marine insurance, and as such, the regional administration has been forced to engage a new contractor.According to Armogan, there is a truck system also which takes fuel to these pumps but because of the deplorable state of the dams – due to heavy rainfall – this process is hindered.At present, the dams are impassible. Chairman of the 52-74 water Users Association, Neezam Rajab, in an interview with Guyana Times said farmers are under a lot of pressure for their livelihood.“Right now about 10,000 acres is under threat, especially the young ones. I would say about two-thirds is under threat and we start losing already,” he told this publication.Rajab said the only answer at this time is for sunshine lasting for two successive days. With that the truck will be able to take fuel to the Manarabisi pump. Even that will be inadequate since that truck can only take in 2000 gallons at a time.And that amount of fuel will not last three days. The boat, which is being asked to have a marine insurance, had the capacity to take 22,000 gallons per trip but the owner said it is unprofitable to pay $2 million when he still has to pay to cross the Berbice Bridge to transport the fuel.The Regional Chairman said there are three options being explored, one of which is to approach the Berbice Bridge Company with a request for them to wave the insurance rule for that contractor.“If we can get the Bridge Company to relax that rule that they have put in place, then the contractor is willing to come as from Monday,” he said.“If the sun comes out and the weather conditions are good then we will continue to move the fuel overland and we don’t need to push the bridge company in that event.If the rain continues to fall, then we can explore the option of the barge and the big tanks… if the situation gets out of hand we might have to rent a barge and hire a few tanks and purchase the fuel from Guyoil and take it in. That will be far more expensive to do it that way but it might be our only option,” the Regional Chairman said. (Andrew Carmichael)last_img read more

Mahdia township closer to realisation

first_imgMahdia, Region Eight, (Potaro-Siparuni) at an advanced stage in its quest to becoming Guyana’s tenth town, joining the three that were named back in 2015, this is according to Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan.Upgrade road and drainage works in MahdiaThe minister told the Department of Public Information (DPI) recently that the government is ready to move ahead with the process which was halted for some time.Mahdia was among a list of communities identified by President David Granger in 2015 to be commissioned to towns. The other three, Bartica, Lethem, and Mabaruma have already been up and running, however, Mahdia has been having some delays due to issues with internal boundaries.“We are at an advanced stage of resolving that matter and the last remaining issue was that while we have arrived at the external boundaries of what will become the municipality of Mahdia, it encompasses two Amerindian villages; Campbelltown and Micobie,” Minister Bulkan said.He added that government could not proceed and create the township and exclude the Amerindian villages as the law makes provision for the inclusion of all.The minister said the government has been holding consultations with the communities to ascertain whether they would like to be part of the township. He explained that discussions were held with the former Toshaos of Campbelltown and Micobie. Other officials, including Minister of Indigenous People’s Affairs Sydney Allicock, also met with the communities in May, where all the issues were explained.The two villages were given up to the end of last month, to decide whether they would like to be part of the township.“Whatever their decision is, we will accept. We would be happy if they recognise the additional benefits that could be accrued to them if they are part of the township,” Minister Bulkan said.He said if the decision is that they do not wish to be part of the process, the government will have to go ahead and give the order for the town to be named. The Communities Minister said internal constituencies have already been identified and all criteria in place to allow for the creation of the township which will allow for it to participate in the November 12 LGE 2018.Meanwhile, Minister Bulkan also spoke of the impressive progress made so far by the other three towns.“There seems to be a race among these councils to prove themselves. I think that it goes without saying that we feel vindicated by the president’s vision in creating these we towns. It was a wise decision, it was the right thing to do,” Minister Bulkan said.last_img read more

‘Finishing below Sunderland and Boro isn’t a success for Newcastle!’ – Opinion

first_imgtalkSPORT Drive presenter Adrian Durham gives his view on events at St James’ Park…Listening to Jason Cundy on the Sportsbar this week was brilliant and hilarious in equal measure. He basically said Newcastle hadn’t had a successful season because they shouldn’t even be in the division they’ve just won.I missed a good chunk of the show because I was laughing uncontrollably at the ridiculous caller who bit back at Jason: “Newcastle have had a more successful season so far than Chelsea!”Geordie genius?Are you Geordie sure?Question: does winning the title in the second tier end Newcastle’s trophy drought? No, of course not. The fans of this club will rightly continue to demand real success.Finishing 21st in England isn’t a successful season.Finishing below Sunderland and Middlesbrough can in no way be described as success for Newcastle.In the context of the season Newcastle have done the job required. But if the message from the Toon army is that this qualifies as success, why should Ashley spend any money next season?He might as well get relegated, then promoted again. Then get relegated and then promoted again. Success every other season? What’s not to love for the owner!Newcastle sold players and signed players. Net spend this, injuries that. What’s not in question is Newcastle had the best squad, best manager and biggest budget – a budget bigger than a lot of Premier League clubs.Winning the title was a no-brainer in the Championship for Newcastle, no matter what kind of desperate arguments are put up to try to pretend otherwise. It should have been in their hands from start to finish, but it wasn’t. Ultimately that doesn’t matter – because the record books will show that Newcastle won the league.They’ll also show it is the second best league in the country. There is no Champions League qualification. There is no end to that infamous trophy drought that’s been going on since they won the Fairs Cup in 1969.Now, without Googling, Newcastle fans: who did you beat in the final? What was the score? And who was the only foreign player in the Newcastle team (you should know him, he scored)?Newcastle shouldn’t even be in the Championship, so winning the title in the second tier – being the 21st best team in the country this season – should be met with a pat on the back, well done for putting right what went wrong and should never have happened last season.Stumbling over the title line and relying on Brighton slipping up in three successive games, and then celebrating so wildly sends out all the wrong signals to Mike Ashley.Every 7 May from now on will be celebrated on Tyneside – Happy Jack Grealish Day – the man who won Newcastle the title. I hope they cut Jack a medal. Answers: Ujpest FC (formerly Ujpest Dosza), 6-2 on aggregate, Preben Arentoft. Newcastle United celebrate their Championship title win 1last_img read more

Liverpool host Man City in early potential title decider as United are at home to Brighton

first_img Tags: BrightonliverpoolMan Cityman Unitedpremier league City have not won in all of their last 16 visits to Anfield. (PHOTO/Courtesy)Man United vs BrightonOld Trafford, ManchesterSunday, 10-11-2019 @5pmRef: Jonathan MossIt has been a horrible start to the campaign for Manchester United and their are no clear indications that it will end soon.Last week, they lost 1-0 away to Bournemouth, their 4th loss already in just 11 games.They will be hoping to return to winning ways when they host Brighton at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.However, Brighton look to be in good form lately as they have defeated both Everton and Norwich City in their last two games.Going into Sunday’s game, Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay is a doubt after sustaining a foot injury in the Europa League win against Partizan Belgrade. Harry Maguire will also be assessed while Victor Lindelof may return from a back injury, but Ashley Young is suspended.Brighton defender Adam Webster has been ruled out after being substituted last weekend with an ankle injury. Leandro Trossard could start after scoring as a substitute versus Norwich.Manchester United have never lost in 11 previous home meetings with Brighton in all competitions, winning nine and drawing two. Brighton have won two of their last three games against United, having triumphed in just one of the previous 18 in all competitions (D5, L12). The home side has won all four Premier fixtures, and each victory has been by a one-goal margin.Manchester United have won just three times in 16 Premier League matches (D6, L7). However, they are unbeaten in 41 home games in November since losing 2-1 against Chelsea in 1996, a Premier League record for a single month (W34, D7).

It is Wolves’ longest top-flight winless run at home against a single opponent. A much-changed Villa beat a youthful Wolves in a League Cup tie on 30th October. Villa haven’t won twice in a season against Wolves since 2003-04.Wolves central defender Ryan Bennett could start against Villa after making his return from a groin injury as a late substitute on Thursday.

He will be replaced by Claudio Bravo, who was sent off in that game, while David Silva is not expected to be fit.Liverpool pair Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk, who missed training earlier in the week, are available. Joel Matip, Nathaniel Clyne and Xherdan Shaqiri remain out.Liverpool have gone 16 top-flight games unbeaten against City at Anfield, with their solitary home defeat in the past 28 meetings coming in May 2003. Manchester City’s 16-match winless streak away to Liverpool is their longest in the Premier League against any opponent (D5, L11). However, City have only lost one of the last five Premier League meetings (W2, D2). They could win consecutive top-flight fixtures against Liverpool for the first time since a run of four from 1935 to 1937.A Liverpool win would ensure they equal the English top-flight record of 11 wins and a draw after 12 matches of a season. Five sides have achieved the feat, including Liverpool in 1990 and Manchester City twice. Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten in 28 Premier League matches, winning 19 of the past 20. Their only defeat in 50 league fixtures came against Manchester City in January. They have not lost against the reigning Premier League champions at Anfield since a 1-0 defeat by Manchester United 12 years ago (W6, D5). The Reds have gone 45 home matches without defeat, the second longest unbeaten run in Premier League history. However, they could concede in a sixth successive league game at Anfield, which would be their longest run without a clean sheet at home since October 2014. They have only lost one of their 22 home league fixtures against established top-six teams under Klopp (W12, D9, L1). Liverpool have recovered an unrivalled 10 points from losing positions this season. They have trailed at half-time in three successive league games for the first time since 2012. Sadio Mane has scored 17 goals in his last 17 league appearances at Anfield. Jordan Henderson is one short of becoming the sixth player to make 250 Premier League appearances for Liverpool.Manchester City have won 11 of their past 12 Premier League away games, scoring 30 goals during that period. They are the division’s top scorers this season with 34 goals, and have only failed to score in one of their past 33 league fixtures. City have lost two of their opening 11 league fixtures – no team managed by Pep Guardiola has suffered three top-flight defeats before the 15th match of a season. Pep Guardiola has lost seven of his 17 games against Jurgen Klopp in all competitions, more than he has against any other manager. Sergio Aguero has made seven Premier League appearances at Anfield without scoring, his longest wait for a goal at any stadium. He has only had two attempts on target in those seven games. Aguero has nine goals from 10 shots on target in the Premier League this season. His next Premier League appearance will be his 250th in the division.
