As community awareness by the Liberia-US Joint Clinical Research Partnership to find causes and derive medical solution for health complications being experienced by Ebola survivors continues, the National President of the Ebola Survivors Network of Liberia (ESNL) has made a rallying call to all Ebola survivors to participate in the study.Speaking Tuesday at the edifice of the Effort Baptist Church in Paynesville during the on-going community engagement campaign spearheaded by the Social Mobilization and Communication Department of PREVAIL, Mr. Patrick Seeco Faley revealed that Ebola survivors are facing serious health programs day-by-day.He named some of the health complications as constant hot body temperature, persistent internal body pains, poor eye sight, uncontrollable male erection, impotency, weakness, swollen legs and failure to conceive or get pregnant by female survivors.Addressing about 300 participants that included Ebola survivors, Ebola close contact people and other community dwellers, Mr. Faley stressed that unless Ebola survivors take advantage of the on-going PREVAIL Research by getting enrolled for the study, they risk living the rest of their lives with various pains and other post-Ebola illnesses.He noted that though the study conducted by PREVAIL has a lifespan of five years, only people who enroll now will benefit from free treatment after doing their test and that only these same individuals will continue to be monitored by PREVAIL during the five year period of the research.Mr. Faley, who complained that Ebola survivors are still facing discrimination in the country, blamed some community leaders for discouraging Ebola survivors from enrolling in the Research saying they often mislead them by saying blood extracted from them will be used for other negative purposes.He told his colleagues that although they are being provided relief assistance by philanthropic organizations, they need to enroll in the Research to have the opportunity to be thoroughly examined by modern laboratory equipment and given the best treatment for their post-Ebola health problems.Other speakers included Dr. Jestina Doe-Anderson, a Liberian Medical Research Scientist, Veteran Medical Practitioner Madam Julia Mulbah Lysander and three team members of the Social Mobilization and Communication Department of PREVAIL .The Research is enrolling 1,500 Ebola survivors and it will cover nine of the most affected Ebola counties in the country. The enrollment and the treatment of post-Ebola sicknesses are free and no one is forced to enroll.The enrollment is being carried out at two hospitals: the JFK Medical Center in Sinkor and the Duport Road Medical Center.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A team from the Solid Waste Department headed by the Director, Walter Narine, on Friday and Sunday carried out massive cleanup campaigns in several sections of Georgetown including the Kitty and East Ruimveldt Market area along with the Cowan Street area. The cleanup exercise on the Kitty Market took approximately 45 minutes while the East Ruimveldt and Cowan Street areas took approximately 3 ½ hours to be completely cleared.The areas had to be cleared since disposal bins placed at each point are reportedly not being properly utilised.According to Narine, the Solid Waste Department is presently low on resources to have the areas policed daily and as such, the garbage disposal issue is one that is frequent.However, his department is now looking to partner with vendors and residents to police the areas and report any delinquency.The residents and vendors were reportedly asked to take photos and videos in cases where persons are caught delinquently dumping garbage and charges are expected to be instituted. Persons can even be fined.In the Tiger Bay area, which was also recently cleared, Narine said that all bins were removed since garbage disposal at the area is out of control. However, that area is presently being monitored.An illegal dumpsite located in central Georgetown was also recently cleared and is also being policed.Just recently, persons were forewarned of prosecution if found to be illegally dumping.Narine had made the disclosure following a cleanup campaign behind the Guyana Bank of Trade and Industry (GBTI), Water Street, Georgetown, location— which is home to the John Fernandes Container Wharf.The exercise, which lasted two hours, saw excavators from the Solid Waste Department, along with a bobcat provided by John Fernandes, being used to remove the garbage which was reportedly dumped by vendors and vagrants.According to Narine, the department is seeking to regulate the area beginning with the clean-up. However, the area is now expected to be monitored by constabulary officers and anyone caught dumping waste will be arrested and prosecuted.The garbage at the John Fernandes Container Wharf had piled up over a one-week period, despite receptacles being placed at the location.Narine told this publication that persons are not using the receptacles but are clearly just dumping the garbage.He is appealing to the vendors to properly dispose of their waste and forewarned that action will be taken.“We are appealing to everybody to have at least a receptacle, vendors they are the major problem because many of them do not have receptacles, they have plastic bags and so but in the interim, this is our challenge. This is madness, garbage decomposes within a four-hour period, then you have the leaches, it has a lot of dangerous effects on humans and animals,” Narine cautioned.
“Business as usual”…flouts Court of Appeal ruling on matterWith Parliament expected to be reconvened at any moment after the ruling of the Appeal Court on Friday, persons are questioning whether dual citizens will return to the chambers. When it comes to the Government, however, it will be business as usual for the dual-citizen Members of Parliament (MPs).When contacted by Guyana Times on Monday, Government Chief Whip Amna Ally stated that all MPs on the Government side would be turning out for the next sitting. She noted that there was nothing impeding them from attending.“I don’t know that there is a court action filed against anyone from attending … so all parliamentarians will be attending Parliament,” Ally explained, when asked about the fate of the dual citizens on the Government side of the House.Already, the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) has made it known that it would not be attending sittings of the National Assembly, with Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo announcing on Sunday that the Party would be sitting out sittings while the no-confidence cases still have to be settled.According to Jagdeo in the announcement on his social media page, he wishes to “place on record that the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) will not attend any sitting of the National Assembly”.This, according to Jagdeo, will be in effect while the appeal of the ruling of the Appellate Court on the no-confidence motion is pending at the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ). Following the Appeal Court’s ruling that the no-confidence motion was not validly passed, the PPP/C had announced on Friday that it would move to the CCJ.When it comes to dual citizens, the long-standing issue rose to the surface with the passage of the no-confidence motion last year. In February, acting Chief Justice Roxane George had ruled on the case filed by Compton Reid over the dual citizenship of former Alliance For Change (AFC) MP Charrandas Persaud.In the case it brought to the acting Chief Justice, Government had argued that Persaud’s dual citizenship status invalidated his vote in support of the no-confidence motion that brought the Government down.This argument also formed part of the opinions presented to Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Scotland in the hopes that he would reverse the ruling –something the Speaker ultimately refused to do.According to the acting CJ, by swearing allegiance to another State, a dual citizen is not qualified to be elected to serve in the National Assembly. But Charrandas was not the only one. In the Opposition camp, Chief Whip Gail Teixeira (who has Canadian citizenship) has already indicated her willingness to renounce her citizenship. And Jagdeo has publicly said that dual citizens from the Opposition camp would not return to Parliament.In the case of the Government, Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge (United Kingdom citizen) and Minister of State, Joseph Harmon (who has United States citizenship) have both failed to say if they would choose Parliament or dual citizenship when the time comes.Article 155 (1) of the Constitution of Guyana states that “No person shall be qualified for election as a member of the National Assembly who (a) is, by virtue of his own act, under any acknowledgement of allegiance, obedience or adherence to a foreign power or state.”However, while the Government has chosen to ignore this aspect of the ruling, they have held to the lifeline of the 34 majority required for the successful passage of the no-confidence motion.
According to the Football Kenya Federation, CAF cancelled an assessment trip scheduled for this Thursday due to ‘the political situation’ in the country with only second vice president Constant Omari travelling in on Sunday night.However, Omari left late Monday after news of a fatal road accident that claimed two of his brothers back at home.“He had come in here basically to assess the political situation in the country after last week’s Supreme Court ruling on the elections. He had a meeting with Sports Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario and Permanent Secretary Peter Kaberia before he left,” Local Organizing Committee (LOC) Deputy Chief Executive Officer Herbart Mwachiro informed Capital Sport.“He asked tough questions… very tough questions, to which the minister gave responses. He expressed CAF’s concern and that of the sponsors that the election would be coming a bit close to the tournament and whether it would affect the preparations,”“He took notes, and because he had to leave urgently, there wasn’t much discussion after that. We all attended the meeting with the government and possibly we will get a report from him soon. But basically, we expect the way forward to be known by the 23rd when the EXCO meets,” Mwachiro further explained.An excavator goes on with work outside the Nyayo Stadium VIP Pavillion on August 24, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluKenya has been on the spot over late rehabilitation of the proposed venues, all of them starting very late, four months before 15 African national teams descend in Nairobi for the biennial championship for home based players.FKF continue to have faith that everything will be complete in time with the Nyayo and Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos setting a 14-week deadline for the completion of construction works.“We have gone all out to ensure we host this tournament. But there are many factors that surround it, not only the construction of the stadia. We will do everything to ensure that what is on our hands is completed and remain optimistic,” Mwachiro further commented.He adds that in the meantime, the LOC will continue pushing contractors on site to ensure the strict deadlines are met. The lowest expectation is that CAF will assign a new inspection date after their meeting in Accra.Kenya won the hosting rights for the tournament in 2015 and a year later after the last edition in Kigali, Rwanda were given the hosting instruments in a ceremony at the Amahoro Stadium in Kigali, attended by Wario himself.However, it has been sad that the government had to wait close to 18 months before starting work.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000CAF vice president COnstant Omari (R) with Sports Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario after briefing the press at the end of CAF’s five day inspection tour on June 17 ahead of CHAN 2018.

Ruud Vormer condemned Monaco to their heaviest ever home loss in Europe as he netted a fourth with five minutes left.Henry remains without a win in five matches since replacing Leonardo Jardim last month in his first managerial role, as Monaco’s winless run in the competition extended to 12 outings.The 2017 French champions will be eliminated if Atletico Madrid beat Group A leaders Borussia Dortmund later on Tuesday.Henry was dealt another injury blow ahead of kick-off with Russia international Aleksandr Golovin ruled out with an ankle problem, while the game came too soon for inspirational Portuguese winger Rony Lopes.Radamel Falcao returned to captain the side after missing the reverse fixture, a 1-1 draw on October 24, and the Colombian went close in the first few minutes as he headed a tough chance wide at the far post.Sofiane Diop should have fired Monaco ahead when he had just Brugge goalkeeper Evan Horvath to beat, but the US international pulled off a brilliant save to keep out the teenager’s powerful strike from close range.Brugge were without a win in the Champions League group stage since 2005, but the Belgians grabbed the lead on 12 minutes as Vanaken picked out the roof of the net from a Mats Rits cross.It got worse for Monaco five minutes later as Antonio Barreca was whistled for a handball while attempting to block a shot from Vanaken, who smacked the resulting penalty beyond Diego Benaglio.Passive defending allowed Wesley to blast home a third, the Brazilian picking the up ball in the channel down the left and skipping past Kamil Glik before hammering in from the edge of the area.Horvath produced another sharp save to dig out a deflected effort from Youri Tielemans, but Henry effectively accepted the game was up when he removed Falcao for 17-year-old Gobe Gouano on the hour.Djibril Sidibe sent a flashing drive across the face of the Brugge goal in a rare second-half opening for the hosts, but a dreadful evening was compounded by more appalling defending to allow Vormer a fourth — after Glik had hobbled off with a groin injury.A flick-on by Rezaei Kaveh skipped past both Tielemans and Almamy Toure to leave Vormer to scamper clear and stroke beyond Benaglio to cap Brugge’s first group stage victory since a 3-2 home defeat of Rapid Vienna in November 2005.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Thierry Henry was left with plenty to ponder as Monaco slid to a seventh defeat in 12 league games this seasonMONACO, Principality of Monaco, Nov 6 – Thierry Henry’s Monaco crashed to an embarrassing 4-0 home defeat by Club Brugge on Tuesday that left the French side tumbling towards an early Champions League exit.Giant striker Hans Vanaken scored twice, the second from the penalty spot, while Brazilian forward Wesley banged in a third as Monaco fell three goals behind in just 24 minutes.

Ray Lewington has attempted to explain England’s horror show at Euro 2016.Lewington was on the Three Lions coaching staff for that tournament in France, acting as Roy Hodgson’s assistant. England were defeated by Iceland and knocked out Euro 2016 1 The pair resigned from their roles after the embarrassing defeat to Iceland which knocked England out the Euros at the round of 16 stage.Though Wayne Rooney opened the scoring from the penalty spot after just four minutes, Ragnar Sigurdsson quickly equalised and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson scored the winning goal before the 20 minute mark.Despite toiling for the remainder of the match, England never once seriously threatened to restore parity with the tournament debutants.Gary Neville, a fellow member of England’s coaching staff at the Euros, has tried to explain the Iceland performance previously.“I think the last 60 minutes against Iceland – I could never explain that to you,” he has been quoted as saying.Lewington, speaking on talkSPORT, gave his own opinion of the performance.“I think we panicked,” he said. “There was mass panic on the pitch.“The real crime was conceding the two goals and giving them something to get behind.“We see it in the Premier League – it’s not a new phenomenon – where the top six have got the best XI on the pitch, and that was the case that night.“We had the best 11 players on the pitch, so how did we lose?“Well… we game two daft goals away after getting the dream start, and we gave them something to defend.”You can listen Lewington’s full explanation of the Iceland performance above…
