first_imgA cargo boat en route to Mabaruma, Region One (Barima-Waini) sank in the mouth of the Waini River on Sunday morning. The incident occurred about 05:00h.F Division (Interior Locations) Commander Kevin Adonis, as well as other regional officials, confirmed that the incident occurred, but was unable to provide further details. However, sources told Guyana Times that the vessel, MV Shivita 2, was transporting cargo from Georgetown for a businesswoman. Efforts to contact the businesswoman were futile.Based on information received, the boat left a Georgetown wharf to transport cargo first to Mabaruma and then Port Kaituma, Region One (Barima-Waini). However, about half an hour before arriving at Mabaruma, the vessel capsized after a strong gush of wind pushed it off course onto a mudflat.This incident occurred as the vessel was entering the Waini River channel. At the time, there were four crewmembers on board, including the captain, all of whom survived the mishap.According to Police sources, as the boat drifted, the crew sent out an alert on the radio set and the Guyana Defence Force’s Coast Guard responded to the distress call, rescuing the men as the boat sank.By this time, boat operators from nearby communities, who also picked up the distress call, arrived on scene to lend assistance. However, at that time, nothing could have been done to save the vessel or the cargo.last_img read more

PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 16- No visas, no tickets; That’s the situation 16-time Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia find themselves in ahead of their CAF Confederation Cup third round return leg tie against SuperSport United scheduled for Wednesday in Pretoria, South Africa.Less than two days to the clash to be staged at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, Gor Mahia are yet to get their visas and worse still, they do not have air tickets. “Over the last two trips we have gone out, the government has been providing tickets for us. Up to now, they are yet to give us anything. If by tomorrow (Tuesday) we don’t have tickets, then I don’t see us travelling not unless a well wisher comes out. We don’t have money as a club,” Gor chairman Ambrose Rachier told Capital Sport.On visas, the club is facing the risk of receiving the documents as late as Wednesday morning if the South African embassy will stick to its regulation of five working days.According to Rachier, the team applied for their visas last Tuesday and was booked for interviews on Wednesday, the same day they were facing Wazito FC in a league fixture in Machakos. They went for the interviews on Thursday.“We couldn’t boycott the match in Machakos and we went on Thursday. The embassy has insisted that they will start counting the five days from Thursday. So we wait and see, hopefully they will be considerate and we can get the visas tomorrow and travel at night,” Rachier further explained.Jack Tuyisenge is joined by Meddie Kagere and Boniface Omondi in celebrating his goal against SuperSport United in a CAF Confederation Cup first round match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaThere has also been an issue with the foreign players in the squad;“The embassy required us to provide one-year work permits but immigration here only gives six month work permits. So we don’t know how that will go down with them. We have explained and so we wait. It is a very precarious situation for the club,” Rachier notes.If Gor successfully get their visas on Tuesday morning and also get tickets, then they will travel to Johannesburg and connect to Pretoria on Tuesday night, and they will not have a chance of feeling the Lucas Moripe Stadium before the game.Head coach Dylan Kerr has already organized a training session for the team at Camp Toyoyo on Tuesday morning.“Our work is on the pitch and we will work hard to be ready for the match,” Kerr noted in a brief response.Gor Mahia won the first leg 1-0 in Machakos on April 7 and are eying a historic berth in the group stages of continental football is they avoid defeat in Pretoria.Coach Kerr will be hoping the pre-match drama will not break down his team’s mental preparedness for the tie. Already they will be without Ernest Wendo for the tie with the midfielder suspended after accumulating two yellow cards.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Burt’s players who have made so many sacrifices this season deserved to go out and enjoy the celebrations that should’ve followed, but they couldn’t.Because, despicably they were forced to play the first-round of the Ulster IFC this afternoon less than 24 hours after making history.Burt had nothing left in their legs and suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Antrim IFC champions Bredagh GAC.The Antrim side ran out convincing winners on a score-line of 2-10 to 0-03.

first_imgHOPES are growing that Karl Lacey will be fit to face Laois alongside captain Michael Murphy in the National League Division 2 decider against at Croke Park on Sunday (throw-in 2pm), donegaldaily can confirm.Forward Murphy has been suffering from a dead leg since playing with his club, Glenswilly, last weekend, and he has now told manager Jim McGuinness he is fit to start. We understand that Murphy believes he has recovered enough to take his place in the squad and may now start the game.Boss McGuinness will now decide between that option and putting Murphy on the bench, but we understand starting the game is an option.Donegal already had an extended list of injury including Neil McGee, Paddy McGrath, Kevin Cassidy, Adrian Hanlon and Mark McHugh.However we now understand Kary Lacey, Kevin Cassidy and Mark McHugh are also now fit enough to start. And Adrian Hanlon has recovered sufficiently to earn a place on the bench. All of Saturday’s newspapers are tipping Laois to win – another great incentive for our boys to prove them wrong.Laois have confirmed Colm Begley as team captain for Sunday’s game. The former Australia Rules player has rediscovered his best form this season, playing mostly at wing forward, and has started in every league to date.Manager Justin McNulty has been rotating the team captaincy so far, with veteran midfielder Pauric Clancy wearing the armband when Laois beat Donegal in the last round just under two weeks ago.And McNulty admits that beating Donegal last time out has given the Tir Chonaill lads another incentive for Sunday.He said: “Donegal will be coming to Croke Park with a point to prove. They probably feel that they didn’t perform to the level that they’re capable of. They missed several good changes. The result probably could have gone the other way given a few breaks of the ball, literally.”Donegal: P Durkan; P McGrath, N McGee, K Lacey; A Thompson, F McFlynn, K Cassidy; R Kavanagh, M McElhinney; M Hegarty, M McHugh, D Molloy; R Bradley, M Murphy, C McFadden.Laois: E Culliton; D Booth, K Meaney, M Timmons; D Strong, S Julian, P O’Leary; P Clancy, B Quigley; C Begley, J O’Loughlin, D Donoher; R Munnelly, B Sheehan, MJ Tierney.Verdict: Donegal (by four points) UPDATED: GAA DIVISION 2 LEAGUE FINAL: LACEY & MURPHY BACK FOR DONEGAL was last modified: April 24th, 2011 by gregShare 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:Donegal GAALaoislast_img read more
