UK government’s culpable persecution of Guardian

first_img March 23, 2021 Find out more News February 12, 2021 Find out more Organisation “We are deeply shocked by the British government’s culpable persecution of the Guardian’s journalists,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said today.“The day before yesterday, Glenn Greenwald’s partner was detained and interrogated at London’s Heathrow Airport under the Terrorism Act. Now the Guardian has revealed that the UK authorities forced it to destroy computer hard drives containing documents provided by Edward Snowden.“The enforced destruction of documents, carried out in the newspaper’s basement under the supervision of intelligence officials, was an extremely grave violation of freedom of information in a country that prides itself on having one the freest presses in the world.”Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger revealed yesterday that British government officials threatened the newspaper with judicial proceedings if it continued to report on the UK and US governments’ surveillance practices.Last June, a senior official claiming to represent the views of the prime minister demanded the destruction of the material that the Guardian was using for its revelations. The newspaper finally complied, but Rusbridger said Guardian journalists based outside the UK have digital copies of the same documents.

We ask the administration and our friends at the Health Ministry to be more proactive,” Benediktus said.He said the dengue fever response should involve all stakeholders, including the Health Ministry, community health centers (Puskesmas), village heads, subdistrict heads, village heads and community heads.He added that the Health Agency should make a master plan to handle other possible disease outbreaks, such as malaria and filariasis.“People working in health care should not think that we have to be sick first to get treatment, instead they should think about how to minimize the number of sick people. There is no point building a luxurious health facility if the number of sick people keeps going up,” he said.

Eto’o Blames Africans for Mane Losing Ballon d’Or to Messi

first_img“If Sadio Mane won it and was on the podium, no one was going to complain because he deserves it and has been doing well and he had the best season,” Eto’o said as per IOL.“Messi (Lionel) won because all the South Americans voted for him. I think the Europeans also voted for Virgil Van Dijk hence he was the runner-up.”Eto’o blamed African voters for snubbing Mane as former Liberia captain George Weah remains the only African to have won the award.“Africans didn’t vote for Mane. That’s the big problem. African people have problems with other African people.“We, as Africans, are letting ourselves down. We need to unite if we are serious about ending the dominance of the Europeans and the South Americans in the race to be crowned the best players in the world.”In January 2020 the CAF African Footballer of the Year will be announced and Salah is in the running for that award together with Mane, Manchester City’s Algeria captain Riyad Mahrez together with Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.“We have a lot of big players in Africa now. Mohammed Salah is doing well,” Eto’o said.“Sadio is also on top of his game. Then you have Aubameyang, Riyad Mahrez and Idriss Onana. It is very difficult for me to choose one. The guy that will win is going to be the best.”Salah has been named CAF’s best player for the past two years.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o insists Sadio Mane deserved to win the Ballon d’Or had he not been “let down” by other Africans who voted against him for the award.Liverpool forward Mane finished fourth for the gong won by Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.Following outcries within the African football community after Mane missed out on the award, Eto’o believes the Senegal international should have been the Ballon d’Or winner.last_img read more

Kelly’s Centra giving customers a boost as N56 roadworks near end

first_imgThe team at Kelly’s Centra Mountain are seeing the positive side to new measures which show that the N56 Coolboy Kilmacrennan Road Scheme is nearing completion.The final surface course on the major roadworks scheme is being laid out over the next 9 days.This latest progress has been much-welcomed by the team at Kelly’s Centra, who have customer concerns to the fore. Mairtin Kelly, owner of the complex, said: “We are happy to see that disruption will be minimal and the main road will not be closed at all. Small local closures will be placed for up to 2 hours at a time with signed diversions. These brighter evenings will make it easier for road users to follow the new routes.”Mr Kelly has taken great interest in the roadworks over the past year. From talking to customers and hearing their concerns, he took it upon himself to speak with leading figures in the project this week.He was happy to report that the next phase of works will not see the N56 closed at any times. While local roads will have temporary diversions, this will be at limited times and only during working hours.“It was reassuring to hear that traffic is flowing as normal today, due to temperatures being too low for road resurfacing,” Mr Kelly said. “Our team and our customers are excited about the route being completed, when we will all make positive savings on our journey times between Mountain Top and Kilmacrennan.”The team at Kelly’s have stepped up on their award-winning services to ensure that customer experiences are quick and smooth at a time when road users faced travel disruption outside.“Here at Kelly’s Centra, we wanted to make sure customers can get home as quickly and safely as possible, so over the last while we’ve increased staff levels up to 20% on to accommodate getting people served and on the road again,” Mr Kelly said.“We’re conscious that the roadworks are on from 9am to 5pm, so we made Kelly’s a great place to stop by if someone wants to get a coffee or food on their journey.“We’re always thinking about ways for customers to save precious time and our self-serve hot food counter has proven very popular. The new hot food counter is fully-stocked right up to 11pm at night, and we replenished the food regularly, so it’s a great time saver for people who can get fresh dinners on their way home.” Kelly’s Centra Mountain TopHowever, from customer conversations, Mr Kelly said he has become aware of issues stemming from drivers taking back roads to avoid the works.“Some people using back roads have indicated that the potholes have damaged their tyres and alloys. Our forecourt attendants are here to help with that, while it’s good to see most people are now using the main road because of this information,” he said.Mr Kelly commended the work of contractors on the €19m roadwork project, which is expected to be completed by Easter 2019.He said: “There is great work being done by road construction crews to minimise delays.” To celebrate the fact that the end is in sight for the roadworks, Kelly’s Centra are launching a special Easter Egg offer this Thursday and Friday April 4-5th. With three medium-sized Easter Eggs for just €3, it’s just the treat!Kelly’s Centra giving customers a boost as N56 roadworks near end was last modified: April 2nd, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:Kelly’s Centra Mountain Toproadworkslast_img read more

Sitole brings adventure to education

first_imgAdventurer Monde Sitole pictured here on Mount Everest. Sitole is combining adventure with education to provide world-class education. (Images: Monde Sitole Facebook page)South Africa’s National Development Plan (NDP) or Vision 2030 makes provision for quality basic education for all, but it is always better when individuals or corporates get involved too.Monde Sitole, an adventurer and social entrepreneur, is doing just that. He started the Monde Sitole Educational Strategies Foundation to develop a culture of achievement and excellence by promoting an impactful, meaningful, comprehensive, holistic, world-class education and training system that is engaging and integrated.“Innovation and ingenuity are the missing links needed to inject life into today’s education and for youth to spearhead solutions towards solving our many troubles and challenges we face as country,” he said. “Serious change needs to take place in order to produce the quality of individuals needed to lead our country forward.”Sitole grew up in East London but his foundation is based in Khayelitsha, in Cape Town. Through it, he is fighting to get some of the country’s 700 000 children back into the classroom.Sitole is also a Global Youth Ambassador for A World at School. The organisation and its network of ambassadors do grassroots education work in 85 countries.BECOMING AN ADVENTURERHe did not set out to become an adventurer but, as he puts, it “one thing led to another”.“I have always said that there is no formula to how I’ve turned out. One thing led to another and it’s evident of the fact that when you aspire and prepare well and always avail yourself to opportunities they will come.“I first got an opportunity via Cape Wind Jammers Sailing Trust to join the first Africans to attend school on board a tall ship on a voyage from Cape Town to Bermuda via St Helena, Ascension Island, Fernando Island, Brazil, and Trinidad and Tobago.“It was on that trip that a friend introduced me to bouldering. After returning from the voyage I was chosen to take part in the Mike Horn Young Explorers Camp in Switzerland, where I was further engrossed in high altitude mountaineering and responsible exploring,” he said.“After that I set off on my very own expedition to scale the highest peaks on each continent, which I succeeded with climbing Kilimanjaro twice; Mount Elbrus, the highest in Europe; Mount Denali in Alaska, the highest in North America; and now I am prepping for Mount Everest without bottled oxygen.”BECOMING A SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURThe vision to make society a better place for all prompted Sitole to become a social entrepreneur.“I realised that if we were to make relevant, meaningful and core strides towards impacting and developing our country and Africa, we needed to have genuine interests and part of that is approaching all the challenges we face with urgency.”East London-born Sitole believes preparation and making himself available to life’s opportunities made him the adventurer he is today. He is hoping to pass on these same lessons at his educational foundation. WHAT HIS FOUNDATION NEEDSSitole’s foundation is in need of young volunteers and workshop space. “We host a series of educational and innovation showcases for the public because our other goal is to create a relationship between school and community,” he said. “As Africans say, a child is raised by a whole village.”Its next school showcase will include the future of education and learning institutions.“We will have exhibitions and stands of youth pioneers, innovators and inventors, for example: Thato of Repurpose Schoolbags; Shalton Mothwa of Epoch Microchips, who invented a charging laptop bag; and Ludwich Marishane of dry bath, to name just a few,” said Sitole.PLAY YOUR PARTAre you playing your part in developing South Africa and its citizens?
