Road Pavement Slows Businesses in Ganta

first_imgAlthough road pavement is progressing from Gbarnga to the Liberia-Guinea border near Ganta, Nimba County, business centers along the pavement route are being hampered owing to the level of demolition of their structures.As the road work now moves to its climax, those affected by the demolition exercise are not angry with the level of development, but are said to be hurting over the delay in the reconstruction of their demolished business establishments mainly in the city center.“We are not angry with the pavement of the road, but the time it will take for us to re-establish remains our focus,” said Harrison Wongbay, a building materials seller.Among business entities that have suffered the worst of the demolition is the First International Bank (FIB) which was razed to the ground on June 30, to allow free flow of traffic. Also, the Ganta branches of the United Bank of Africa (UBA) and ECOBANK were among many businesses that were situated in the right of way of the road and are faced with possible demolition.The FIB was previously located at the main intersection of the Guinea Road and in accordance with the design based on modern standards there should be no congestion at major intersections, especially where heavy vehicles and other traffic are supposed to freely pass.At the moment, a portion of the ECOBANK structure has been demolished by engineers, while the UBA is also gearing for relocation since the FIB has already been relocated.Several other businesses including the Justina Bar and Restaurant, the Beer Garden Restaurant, F2 and many others are likely to close down until the road work is completed.One of the conditions affecting the re-establishment of businesses is the new Ganta City ordinance, which requires all store owners to turn their buildings into at least one or two storey buildings with flat roofs.Some business owners including Victoria Varr, are worried about the new regulation, “because the money they generate from their businesses is not enough to construct flat roofs or storey buildings.”Most of the buildings on the main street of Ganta were built 40 to 50 years ago.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

But if other persons want to join, they are free to do so; but it’s for mostly farmers,” the director clarified.This exercise is expected to last for six weeks, and Subramanian noted that the certificate that farmers will receive on completion of the course will be recognised similarly as any other certificate received from the University of Guyana.last_img read more

Accused changes plea after trial commences

first_imgAttempted murder– admits to near-fatal woundingEon Archibald, 43, of East La Penitence, Georgetown whose trial for attempted murder commenced at the High Court changed his plea on Thursday afternoon, admitting that he unlawfully wounded Dwayne “Country” Morris on June 4, 2015.The incident occurred at Pavement View Restaurant and Bar on D’Urban Street, Georgetown where Archibald viciously chopped Morris, because he believed that the man was having a relationship with the mother of his children.However, when the matter came up for trial at the Demerara Criminal Assizes earlier this week, Archibald, who now works as a guard with a security company, entered pleas of not guilty on alternative counts. Led by State Counsel Narissa Leander, the prosecution presented the indictment, which contended that Archibald wounded “Country” with intent to murder him. He was also alternatively charged for having wounded Morris, with intent to cause grievous bodily harm or to maim, disable, or disfigure him.Just before the jury was set to return for the afternoon session, Archibald informed Justice Sandil Kissoon that he desired to change his plea and admitted that he wounded his rival. During the short trial, the victim took the stand where he told the court that he knew Archibald from going to the Bar and the man’s partner, “Gail”, was a waitress there.Morris had told the 12-member jury that he was at the back of the bar looking at the monitor when the waitress called out to him and when he got up to see what she wanted, the defendant approached him and accused him of being with “Gail”. The witness recalled the defendant firing several chops at him, putting his hands up to block them and being injured in the process.Morris added that he then ran while trying to fend Archibald off and was injured to his side.“I kept asking what going on and he say ‘I gon kill yo; I gon kill yo’,” the victim stated.Justice Kissoon adjourned the matter to October 11, 2018 for presentation of a probation report and sentencing. Archibald was out on $300,000 bail prior to Thursday’s trial where he was leading his own defence, as he had no lawyer. He has been remanded to prison.last_img read more

DERRY ROSE TO BLOOM AT LETTERKENNY’S ‘CALAMITY JANE’

first_imgDerry Rose Julianna Ayton will be centre stage in Letterkenny from February 26th to March 2nd when she joins the cast of Letterkenny Musical Society for their production of Calamity Jane at An Grianan Theatre. The talented young Campsie woman has proved to be a real find for the LMS, who were quick to cast her in the role of Calamity after a stunning audition last September.Since then, the entire cast has been working every week on the forthcoming production that’s certain again to be a show stopping success. Famed for their amazing shows, including stunning productions of Oliver and Annie in recent years, Letterkenny Musical Society (LMS) has again pulled out all the stops with this year’s much-loved classic.Under the keen eye of Director Billy Patterson and Producer Noel O’Donnell, the energetic and talented bunch of singers, actors and comedians have put together a version of Calamity Jane that nobody will want to miss. The versatile and accomplished singer and actor Giles Murray, who has had a number of starring roles with LMS over the years, plays Wild Bill Hickock, with Joe Harley taking on the role of Lieutenant Danny Gilmartin.Although the stage show is similar in story to the well-known movie, there are many more musical and indeed visual treats in store for the audience, not least of which are the four can-can girls, who may well actually steal the show with their on-stage antics!The much admired Adelaide Adams is gloriously portrayed by Nicola McBride, who played  the lead role as Nancy in Oliver last year, while her maid Katie Brown, who causes much confusion and finds herself in the Golden Garter in Deadwood as Adelaide Adams, is played brilliantly by Ríana Lynch.Of course that isn’t the only case of confused identity in the show, and Donal Kavanagh is simply superb as Saloon owner Henry Miller, first thrown into a frenzy by the arrival of Francis and not Frances Fryer (expertly played by Niall McDonagh), and then by the revelation that Katie Brown is not, in fact, who his customers thought she was.His fears are eased though by his niece Susan, a role mastered with ease by newcomer Maire O’Donnell, who has demonstrated such talent in her first show with the group that she was also handed the demanding task of being Calamity’s understudy, too.All of this is played out to the sounds of some of the most amazing musical harmonies you’re likely to hear in a stage show, harmonies once again creatively sewn together by musical director Gerard Bradley.Throw in the humour and the vibrant dancing sensationally brought together by choreographer Maria Rushe and it’s easy to see that there’s a real treat in store in An Grianán Theatre next week. Tickets for this must-see musical are available by contacting the box office at An Grianán 0035374 9120777 or online at angrianan.comDERRY ROSE TO BLOOM AT LETTERKENNY’S ‘CALAMITY JANE’ was last modified: February 18th, 2013 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:Calamity JaneLetterkenny Musical Societylast_img read more

Outrage as heavily pregnant woman’s car seized by customs officers

first_imgThere has been severe criticism of the custom’s unit in Donegal after a heavily pregnant woman’s car was seized.The woman, who was eight months pregnant, claimed she was driving a courtesy car as her own car was being repaired.The incident happened on the N13 road close to Newtowncunningham as custom’s officers were operating routine checkpoint. The woman claimed she had been driving the northern-registered vehicle for just a few days while her own state-registered car was in for repair.Anti-VRT campaigner Ryan Stewart told the Inishowen Independent that customs officials were completely “over the top” in their actions towards the woman.“This woman is heavily pregnant and was driving courtesy car because her own car, which is southern-registered, is in the garage getting fixed.“The garage man gave her a lend of a Northern-registered car, which she had for less than fourteen days when it was lifted. “It was totally over the top for customs to act like this,” he said.When contacted, a spokesperson for the Revenue office, said they were repented from speaking about individual cases.A video of the incident, which was filmed by another member of the public, has gone viral and has been viewed more than 125,000 times.Outrage as heavily pregnant woman’s car seized by customs officers was last modified: October 18th, 2016 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)last_img read more

Uganda 1-0 Cape Verde: Main positives to draw

first_img Tags: topUganda Cranes Kaddu scored the lone goal on Saturday (photo by fufa media)KAMPALA – On Saturday, Uganda beat Cape Verde 1-0 to book an early berth in next year’s Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.Head Coach, Sebastian Desabre leaped with joy when the centre referee blew the final whistle to seal Uganda’s place at the June 2019 tournament.There are several positives to draw from the somewhat cagey victory.1- The Emergence of Patrick Kaddu. In only his third ever full international game, Kampala Capital City FC forward Kaddu led the line with distinction.His blossoming understanding with Farouk Miya must be the principal reason Desabre chose Kaddu ahead of Austria based Edrisa Lubega.Besides, the KCCA FC front man’s running behind the lines was exemplary.  Can’t recall a Cranes striker who has beaten the offside trap in a crunch international more often. By the time he took his goal, the 22-year-old had put in a good shift by his clever running, incessant pressing and powerful leap.2- Disregard Fifa Rankings: Just before Matchday Two, which marked Desabre’s AFCON qualifiers bow, global football governing body released rankings which put Cape Verde in 65th place, 18 positions ahead of Uganda.The Cranes would definitely not have been able to beat the West African islanders home and away had they allowed Fifa’s rankings to prey on their mind.Matter of fact, even Tanzania’s Taifa Stars, who are rated over fifty positions behind Cape Verde, could still qualify at their expense.3- Developing Total Football: The ease with which Kuwait based Denis Iguma slotted back into the holding role, just weeks after playing a starring central defensive role in Cranes’ 2-0 victory over Lesotho, was a joy to behold.Going forward, coach Desabre shouldn’t be averse to switching Iguma and Hassan Wasswa Mawanda during games.  For instance, against Cape Verde, it was apparent Wasswa was finding it hard to keep track of danger man Jose Semedo ‘Giannini’. An easy way around such a conundrum would have been to ask Iguma to have a crack at tracking the effervescent forward.4- Clean Sheets Cranes Biggest Weapon: Uganda is yet to concede a goal with only next March’s duel with Tanzania to go.Defense has been the bedrock of Cranes’ continuing growth into a continental force.  In my book, Uganda’s defenders deserve more plaudits for consistently making hay of Africa’s top strikers. Even in their ultimately unsuccessful bid to qualify for last summer’s World Cup in Russia, Uganda only let in a continent equating two goals.5- Kateregga Best Left Sided Midfielder:   Though El Hadood leftie Isaac Muleme tried his best to fill the position vacated by Joseph Ocaya, his overall performance left much to be desired.Cape Town City star Allan Kateregga’s stellar display in Maseru is the best we have seen from a Cranes player in that position in years. Going forward, rather than keep rotating between Muleme, Ocaya and Kateregga, Desabre must teach the South Africa based stylist how to mind his defensive responsibilities. That way, the Cranes can maintain their midfield balance without losing their aesthetical appeal.Comments last_img read more
