But for me it was quite an easy conversation because he was sorry about, let’s say, the mistake but it was never his intention to hurt, offend.“He immediately regretted it, recognised it was a young guy mistake, a young generation mistake. And he apologised. So my conversation was easy.“It was not a contradiction of ideas with me unhappy and him not understanding why. It was so simple.“He regrets it, and that’s the best feeling he can show and to have the humility to apologise is remarkable because sometimes young people make mistakes and do not realise.“This conversation was so easy.”He immediately regretted it, recognised it was a young guy mistake. And he apologised.

(MGI), which will last for 15 years.Mr. Joe Gene Mulbah is the President and CEO of Musons Group, Incorporated.The President’s letter to Speaker J. Emmanuel Nuquay said the law, titled, “The Investment Incentive Agreement between the Government of Liberia and Musons Group, Inc,” has an investment of over US$70 million.The President said the purpose of the Investment Incentive Agreement (IIA) is to actualize government’s initiative of attracting and encouraging investors to invest in the country.The agreement was signed by the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning and the National Investment Commission, and attested by the Ministry of Justice on behalf of the Executive Branch of Government.The investment contract is intended for the construction, development and maintenance of a 210-room state-of-the-art hotel and resort in Marshall, Margibi County and other recreational facilities.“These recreational facilities when completed will develop the tourism sector, will provide jobs, generate revenues, provide opportunities for Liberians to showcase their talents and improve the livelihood of the citizens,” the President wrote.“The aim and objective of this Investment Incentive Agreement is to develop and put Liberia’s hotel and tourism sectors on par with other developed nations, encourage the construction of facilities that will attract world leaders and other world dignitaries to consider hosting major conferences and other global activities in Liberia.“Mr. Speaker, this Investment Incentive Agreement that is in line with Liberia’s relevant laws and public policy appertaining thereto, compliments the development plan of the hotel and resort sector of Liberia thereby attracting tourists.“As government commits to creating jobs and a sustainable economic environment, the passage into Law of this Investment Incentive Agreement will demonstrate Liberia’s commitment and implementation in that endeavor.”Following the reading and acceptance of the instrument, plenary agreed to a motion proffered by Hon. Clearance Massaquoi to forward it to the Committees on Investment and Concession, Judiciary, Broadcasting and Tourism, and Ways, Means, Finance and Development Planning to review and advise the body within two weeks.The MGI is comprised of Liberian professionals with a common objective of developing an organized, committed and focused institution, MUSONS GROUP, Incorporated, which was established on August 5, 1996.

first_imgMatano taking charge of his first match in his second coming at Tusker made changes to the squad with Brian Osumba and left-back David Mwangi all starting the match as he sought to steady the ship.Tusker started bright in attack. In the fourth minute, referee Agnetta Itubo denied them what looked like a brilliant opportunity at goal when Achema picked the ball up and sprinted at goal after a foul on Peter Nzuki in the middle of the pack.However, the referee pulled back play to the Nzuki foul with Achema clearly breaking off towards goal denying them advantage play.On the other end, Tusker’s veteran keeper Duncan Ochieng pulled a brilliant save to deny Piston Mutamba who had done well to outmuscle Mwangi off the ball before unleashing a ferocious volley at goal that Ochieng tipped over.Having survived the near goal on their end, Tusker got themselves into the lead in the 12th minute courtesy of a gift from Wazito defender Emmanuel Tienan.The Ivorian’s poor control as he tried to defend a ball from Mathew Odongo fell on Achema’s path and with only the keeper to beat the forward slotted the ball into the far left of keeper Peter Odhiambo’s goal.Wazito’s Kennedy Ayako attempts to dribble past Tusker’s Hashim Ssempala during a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on April 25, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluBut Wazito kept on asking the questions, planting the long balls behind the Tusker defense as they sought to use Mutamba’s height.In the 14th minute, the tact nearly paid off when Mutamba turned away from Asike on the right but his shot deflected off the Tusker defender’s back, but the ref gave a goal-kick.Tusker were trying to play the ball on the ground passing around with ease as they seemed to have gained immense confidence from the goal.In the 20th minute, Odongo came close but he couldn’t direct a header on target at the edge of the six yard box off an Achema cross.As the half wore on, Wazito grew into the game and they had two chances though both went straight to keeper Ochieng’s arms.First it was David Oswe who pulled a shot from distance and second, Tienan tried to make amends when he wriggled his way past a forest of legs on the right but his eventual shot was straight at the keeper.-Second half-In the second half, both coaches made changes, Timothy Otieno and Eric Ambunya coming on for Mike Khamati and Mwangi respectively while Wazito brought on Samson Ndegwa for Oswe.After a balanced start, it was the Brewers who came close on the hour mark when a good team move on the left saw Osumba pick out Odongo on the far right, but the forward took too many touches in the ball and his eventual shot was weak and straight to Ochieng.Wazito made more attacking changes, Ibrahim Mao coming on for Kennedy Ayako and the youngster almost had an immediate impact when his freekick from range evaded the target by a whisker with Ochieng well beaten.Tusker’s Eugene Asike and Wazito’s Piston Mutamba chase for the ball during a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on April 25, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluOn the other end, keeper Odhiambo almost made an unforgettable error when he missed a backpass from his skipper Dan Owino but luckily for him he was away from goal and the ball rolled out for a corner.Wazito pounded Tusker with immense pressure as they sought to get back on level terms and Mao continued to provide danger. His freekick in the 71st minute almost caused jitters in the Tusker box but Luis Tumba missed a connecting header.There was drama in the final minutes of the game after Wazito keeper Odhiambo seemed to have pushed Tusker’s Boniface Muchiri in the face, but the referee cautioned no one from the ensuing drama.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tusker’s Mathew Taro Odongo vies for the ball with Wazito’s Joe Waithira during a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on April 25, 2018.

first_imgMundo Deportivo ‘leaked’ the 59-player shortlist for the FIFA Ballon d’Or award on Friday morning, and football supporters are in disbelief at some of the alleged contenders.While there’s no surprise at seeing Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Gareth Bale among the nominees, there are some bizarre inclusions from Bournemouth, Leicester City and Queens Park Rangers, as well as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, which have left fans scratching their heads.Have a read of the 10 shock contenders for the Ballon d’Or by clicking the yellow arrow above, right. 5. Carlos Sanchez (River Plate – winger) – The 30-year-old himself may wonder how he has earned a place on the list. 2. Massimo Luongo (QPR – midfielder) – Last season Luongo was playing in League One for Swindon Town and, despite his glamorous move to Loftus Road in the summer, his inclusion isn’t justified. 10 10 10 6. David Ospina (Arsenal – goalkeeper) – Ospina’s inclusion is one of the most bizarre of all, particularly when it’s noted that Champions League finalist Gianluigi Buffon has failed to make the cut. 7. Andre Ayew (Swansea City – forward) – Ayew has been excellent for Swansea City, becoming a key player under Gary Monk, but he’s no Ballon d’Or contender. 10. Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool – attacking midfielder) – There was huge uproar when the Brazilian was nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award last season, and it really is astonishing that he continues to be named alongside some of the game’s current greats, despite his Liverpool career having yet to take off. 9. Wilfried Bony (Manchester City – striker) – The Ivorian was great at Swansea City, but he is fast becoming a forgotten man at Manchester City. 10 10 10 10 3. Eduardo Vargas (1899 Hoffenheim – forward) – Vargas has been in inspired form over the past 12 months, but seeing his name on the shortlist is a shock. 8. Heung-Min Son (Tottenham Hotspur – forward) – The South Korean is quickly becoming a fan favourite at White Hart Lane after his £22m move in the summer; however, this honour is slightly out of reach. 4. Giovani dos Santos (LA Galaxy – striker) – It’s exciting to see a player from Major League Soccer getting a mention, but as talented as Dos Santos may be, the Ballon d’Or should be far out of his reach. 10 10 10 1. Christian Atsu (AFC Bournemouth – winger) – The Ghana international has been in excellent form for his country, but his club performances are hardly worth mentioning.last_img read more

first_imgA COPYCAT motorbike nutter has filmed himself speeding at 100mph on a Co Donegal road where another biker claimed to have ridden his bike at 160mph. The video was posted on YouTube yesterday with the claim that speed was reduced to 100mph because of the wet conditions on Tuesday when it was filmed.It’s the same road outside Pettigo where another motorbike madman filmed a similar video in October. Gardai are investigating those claims.In this video, the motorcyclist can be heard shouting during the filming.At one stage his bike appears to wobble. And there are a number of occasions where he appears to be driving on one wheel – doing a so-called wheelie.Last night with claims that the number of Garda Traffic Corps officers in the county being reduced, one senior garda told us: “It’s hard to judge the speed on this video but whoever it is can be seen breaking the law by performing a wheelie.“We would ask anyone who knows who it is to contact Gardai at their nearest station or via the confidential telephone.”The copycat motorbike idiot claims to be riding an R6 Yamaha.© 2011, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on Follow us on anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comDDTV VIDEO: COPYCAT MOTORBIKE MADMAN DOES 100MPH ON DONEGAL ROAD was last modified: December 29th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:donegalGardaiMOTORBIKESPettigolast_img read more

first_imgA NUMBER of homes in east Donegal have been left without landline telephone services today after thieves stolen overhead cables.Several hundred metres of cable between Manorcunningham and Newtowncunningham were stolen overnight.Eircom says it is aware of the incident and engineers are working to restore services. Gardai say they are investigating the theft.Inishowen Sinn Féin Councillor Jack Murray has called for Donegal scrap dealers to look out for anyone who could be selling stolen cable lines.Commenting on the situation, Councillor Murray said: “The theft of phone line cables is not a victimless crime. Many elderly people in south Inishowen who do not have mobile phones are now unable to contact, family members, doctors and other emergency services.“This will cause hardship to many vulnerable people in the local community. “I would call on scrap dealers, who deal in copper, to look out for anyone who could be selling stolen phone lines.“Those people who are stealing these phone lines are making profit from it somewhere and I would ask anyone with any information to come forward immediately.” THIEVES CUT OFF PHONES AFTER STEALING CABLES was last modified: July 15th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:THIEVES CUT OFF PHONES AFTER STEALING CABLESlast_img read more

first_imgPeople living in Donegal and using addresses in Derry to obtain free health care are to be targeted in a new initiative by the UK Department of Health aimed at tackling fraudulent health claims It is estimated false claims are costing the UK Health Service £0.25 billion a year.The Health Department in the North has launched a number of initiatives to combat the problem which ranges from people claiming free prescriptions to consultants claiming for unworked hours. Northern Health Minister Edwin Poots said the people wrongfully obtaining free treatment at Altnagelvin Hospital was an issue investigators would be looking at.Mr Poots said: “With it costing up to 100 euro for using emergency departments it is very tempting to say you are a resident of Northern Ireland.“That is an issue, certainly at Altnagelvin. We would never refuse anyone a service but it is an issue if not a resident in Northern Ireland and we have to recoup that money.”  DONEGAL HEALTHCARE ‘CHEATS’ FACING CRACKDOWN IN THE NORTH was last modified: October 2nd, 2013 by John2Share 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 HEALTHCARE ‘CHEATS’ FACING CRACKDOWN IN THE NORTHlast_img read more

It’s good news for domestic tourism as Irish people choose to stay at home in hot weather.And it’s good news for the increasing number of foreign tourists discovering the real Ireland up here in Donegal.Seaside towns from Bundoran via Bunbeg to Buncrana are reporting bumper crowds as the school holidays kick in.Today is also a special one for a local photographer whose incredible snaps of the county – and in particular Inishowen – has helped put Donegal on the map.
