Malian Leader Elated Over Progress

first_imgThe government and people of Liberia have been receiving commendations locally, regionally, continentally and even globally for the level of progress being made thus far in the fight against the horrendous Ebola Virus Disease that has traumatized the nation and its neighbors since February this year.One African leader to add his voice to those that have commended the Liberian people for their resilience and courage is the President of Mali, Ibrahim Boubaca Keita.The Malian leader said that he is upbeat about the level of leadership demonstrated by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in the fight against the Ebola virus disease, describing it as “exemplary”.He made the commendation over the weekend when he paid a daylong solidarity visit to President Sirleaf and the Liberian people.  During a press stakeout with the Liberian President in the foyer of the Foreign Ministry that houses the President’s office, President Keita said he felt compelled to pay a solidarity visit to Liberia in return for what President Sirleaf did for his country when she worked for the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) African Bureau when he was then Prime Minister.He said during Madam Sirleaf’s tenure as UNDP Africa Regional Director General, she approved a lot of aid funding for the development of his country.  “Though we have been talking on the phone since the Ebola outbreak, I would have never felt relieved if I had not personally come to Liberia to see her,” the Malian President said. President Keita said he has seen the progress with his own eyes and will not hesitate to tell the people of Mali that Liberia had made huge gains in the fight against Ebola and soon the virus will be history in Liberia.He extended appreciation, on behalf of the Malian people, to the Government and people of Liberia as well as international partners for working together to contain the Ebola outbreak.He also thanked President Sirleaf and the people of Liberia for their political and military intervention that has now brought peace and stability to his country.Liberia currently has a small Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) infantry platoon as part of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali.Speaking earlier, President Sirleaf thanked her Malian counterpart for remaining engaged with Liberia during its health crisis. “Though you have been on the phone all the time with me on the crisis, you thought it wise to come on the ground to demonstrate your solidarity to us as a country and the Liberian people greatly appreciate you for your solidarity,” the Liberia leader told President Keita.She attributed the gains made in the Ebola fight to the resilience of the Liberian people and international partners for what she described as “good collaborative efforts”.President Keita is the second African leader to pay a solidarity visit to Liberia since the outbreak of the Ebola virus, the first being Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama, who is also chairman of the sub-regional organization, Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS). The Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma and other leaders have also paid solidarity visits to Liberia since the Ebola outbreak.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Ronaldo celebrates landmark goal but Juve’s perfect run broken

first_img0Shares0000Ronaldo celebrates a new milestone with his 400th league goal © AFP / Marco BERTORELLORome, Italy, Oct 20 – Cristiano Ronaldo scored but wasteful Juventus had to settle for a 1-1 stalemate at home to Genoa to end the Italian champions’ perfect start to the season on Saturday.With eight Serie A wins and two in the Champions League Juve were all set to extend that fine run when Ronaldo put Massimiliano Allegri’s men into a first-half lead. But Juve were made to pay for failing to convert a hatful of chances when Daniel Bessa headed in a second-half equaliser.Juventus retain control of the Serie A summit, but Napoli can reduce the gap to four points if they beat Udinese later Saturday.Ronaldo, despite the turmoil of explosive rape allegations that surfaced before the international break, notched up his fifth goal for his new employers since his headline move from Real Madrid in the 18th minute, ironically helped by a mistake from Genoa’s top-scoring Polish striker Krzysztof Piatek.A communications mix-up saw Piatek leave Joao Cancelo’s blocked shot for his keeper, but the loose ball fell at Ronaldo’s feet and he tapped in to an empty net.This was the 33-year-old’s 400th career goal in Europe’s top five leagues, making him the first player to reach that tally.Lionel Messi is next best on 389.Ronaldo, who returns to Old Trafford on Tuesday to face his old club Manchester United, would have bagged a double shortly after but his low shot was denied by Genoa keeper Ionut Radu’s diving save.With Genoa struggling to contain the lively Cancelo down the right Juve were firmly in control, their only regret at the break being they weren’t further in front.Genoa had to wait until the 53rd minute for their first shot on target, and unsurprisingly it fell to Piatek, but his hopes of swelling his nine-goal Serie A haul were dashed when Juve keeper Wojciech Szczesny tipped his shot around the post.Energised, the 23-year-old should have levelled seconds later, outjumping Leonardo Bonucci but his header went wide.In an attempt to stifle Genoa as they scented an equaliser Allegri replaced Juan Cuadrado with Douglas Costa, the Brazilian winger making his first appearance since a four-game ban for spitting.Juve paid heavily for failing to kill off the encounter when Bessa headed a cross from Christian Kouame into the back of the net on 67 minutes.Allegri responded by introducing Paulo Dybala for Blaise Matudi as a frantic finale beckoned with Genoa holding on for a surprising point.Earlier, Roma came unstuck 2-0 to visiting minnows SPAL to dash their hopes of a fourth straight league win.The hosts had beaten Frosinone, Empoli and above all city rivals Lazio and had been hoping to improve on their sixth place in Serie A ahead of Tuesday’s home Champions League game with CSKA Moscow.SPAL, who came a highly respectable 13th in Serie A following promotion last season, went ahead with a slickly-converted Andrea Petagna spot-kick on 38 minutes.A flashing header from Kevin Bonifazi finished off a corner on 56 minutes to make it 2-0 to the visitors for their fourth win in nine matches, losing their other five.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

He was accompanied on the visit by Fianna Fail stalwarts Ciaran Brogan, Dessie Larkin and Victor Fisher.When one resident asked Mr Martin why there were no cameras or media, he replied: “This isn’t for the cameras; this is about getting to know the real issues affecting ordinary people.”Cllr Ciaran Brogan today confirmed the visit had been hush-hush.“The party leader has been travelling throughout the country to meet and greet people,” said the Donegal County Councillor. “He spent more than three hours in Letterkenny and we just went door to door to meet people and discuss their lives and how current Government policies are affecting them.

Warning after ‘crocodile-like’ creature spotted on Tory Island

first_imgMembers of a specialist team from the National Parks and Wildlife Service have arrived on Tory Island following reports that a crocodile-like creature was released on the island.The creature was first spotted by a fisherman close to the harbour on Saturday morning.The reptile is estimated to be up to ten feet long according to eye-witnesses. Other sightings of the crocodile were made near the island’s lighthouse.It is not known how the creature arrived on the island but islanders have been warned to stay away from the harbour until the creature is caught.One theory is that the reptile may have stowed away on a boat which stopped off recently on the island.Spokesman for the Parks and Wildlife Service (with responsibility for exotic creatures), Mr John Scales, told Donegal Daily they have brought specialist bait to the island in a bid to capture the reptile. However, they have warned islanders not to approach the crocodile-like creature and not to try and take pictures of it.“We would certainly ask people to stay away if they see the creature and definitely not to try and take a selfie with it.“We simply don’t know what danger this creature poses. It could be harmless but we can’t take a chance because we don’t know what it is.“We have special cages and we will be placing them at strategic locations around the island.“Believe it or not we have baited the cages with Donegal Catch as crocodiles just love fish,” he said.
