“I am very pleased to be heading to Manchester United. This is a team that I have watched and followed for all my life and getting the opportunity to go there is a dream come true. I am excited and I hope those who know me will be excited to see me there,” the ex-striker famed for his dribbling skills said.The visit to Old Trafford has been organized by Black Arrow, a United States based football media brand which will also be documenting Kadenge’s football journey with his famous tag-line ‘Kadenge na Mpira’.“I am very pleased to be heading to Manchester United. This is a team that I have watched and followed for all my life and getting the opportunity to go there is a dream come true. I am excited and I hope those who know me will be excited to see me there,” the ex-striker famed for his dribbling skills said.“Football has the power to unite and Joe (Kadenge) is one of the few unifying people and forces in this country. He is a treasure to all political parties, and tribes,” Black Arrow co-founder Felix Orwa said.“By shining light on Kadenge as he travels to Old Trafford, we hope we can help solidify his place amongst the greats internationally, as well as possibly get some additional international attention to football in Kenya as an industry, and inspire our next generation.”Kadenge has been a Manchester United fan since his playing days and was endeared to the club after the Munich Air disaster in 1958 when eight Manchester United players were part of 23 fatalities after the plane they were travelling in crashed on its third attempt to take off from the Munich-Riem Airport in West Germany.As part of his journey to Old Trafford, Kadenge will visit the Air Disaster memorial Park on the day of his arrival and will be part of the 60th anniversary celebration on February 6.Manchester United will play Huddersfield Town on Saturday at Old Trafford.“I felt very bad because I felt like they were my friends. It was sad and from that time, I loved Manchester United very much. I hope that when I go there, I will be able to meet some of the players who survived as well as those who played during those years,” an ecstatic Kadenge said.He added; “I also want to meet Sir Alex Ferguson because he is my coaching idol. I loved how he did his work and when I was given the national team to coach, I tried to do it like him.”The legend has also called on the government and private sector to accord more help and support to sporting legends, arguing that during their time, they played for the country’s pride and love of the game but never got much in return.“Sometimes I wish I played football now. There is very good money and there are so many opportunities and I want to tell the young people to make use of that. For us, we just played for passion,” he says.“People should come out and help us now that we are retired. We should not be left to struggle on our own,” added the legend.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Kadenge, 82, says it is a delight getting the opportunity to watch the team play, pointing out he would have loved to play for them but during his times, an African getting the chance to play abroad was difficult.NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 31- Harambee Stars legend Joe Kadenge will achieve his life-long dream of watching his favourite team Manchester United play when he travels to the United Kingdom on Friday for Man U’s match against Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford on Saturday.Kadenge, 82, says it is a delight getting the opportunity to watch the team play, pointing out he would have loved to play for them but during his times, an African getting the chance to play abroad was difficult.

ONE OF Donegal’s leading lawyers, who specialises in banking matters, has told donegaldaily.com that people who invested in ETIC Solutions could wait ‘up to five years’ to get any monies back.And despite the fact we know more than 200 people in Donegal gave convicted crook Francois de Dietrich millions of euro, so far just EIGHT people have made a formal complaint to Gardai.The lawyer we spoke to has also warned that just because Stg£20.2M has been located by authorities in the North, it doesn’t mean all the money has been found. One account located by Gardai contains less than €2M. Two businessmen have won a Dublin High Court case preventing that money from being withdrawn.Gardai believe dozens more investors will now come forward after revelations the French crook is a career criminal who specialises in conning people out of cash. He has a lengthy criminal record for deceit.The lawyer told us: “My advice to people could not be more clear. Anyone who lost money needs to record that as soon as possible with the authorities.”It is thought that some investors will not come forward as they invested ‘undeclared’ monies in the scam.

THE Trust which took a local soccer team to court over use of a pitch has hit back at them this evening.The Butt Hall Trust got an injunction in the High Court yesterday forcing Ballybofey United to leave the pitch in the town.The club claims to have been using the pitch since 1971. However in a statement to Donegal Daily this evening the Trust insisted it has acted within its rights.“The Butt Hall Trust welcomes the decision of the High Court yesterday restraining Ballybofey United Football Club from trespassing on Trust lands at Chestnut Road, Ballybofey which they currently occupy without permission. This will allow the Trust to honour its obligations under a Contract for the sale of part of the lands concerned to a third party, namely Aldi,” said the statement.“It has been widely reported following the judgement that these lands have been continuously occupied by the Club for a period in excess of 40 years. While this is the Club’s claim, it is contested- as the judgement also states.“The position of the Trust is that the Club’s current occupation of the lands derives from an approach made in 2005 when the Club sought permission to use the lands for a temporary period of years pending its move to a site in Stranorlar- as part of the proposed new Finn Harps development there. The arrangement was also on the basis that the Club would vacate the lands on Chesnut Rd., when sold. The Club has enjoyed the facility without charge in the intervening 8 year period which is already considerably longer than was envisaged at the time- due to delays in the completion of the Stranorlar project. “The facility granted was not unusual and the Trust in the past would have assisted various local groups and Clubs where it could.“The Club also made a separate decision in October of last year seeking to acquire its own site for development (independent of the proposed Finn Harps Stranorlar development) and approached the Trust to purchase a plot on separate Trust lands at Glencovitt, Ballybofey. In a letter at that time, the Club expressed its delight when the Trust agreed in principle to sell those lands to them for the price as offered.“The Trust was then very surprised when in April of this year the Club refused to move off the Chestnut Road site. In response to a request to move to allow the Aldi sale be concluded, the Club for the very first time claimed it had been in continuous occupation of same since 1971; denied the permissive arrangement agreed in 2005 and claimed they were entitled to outright ownership or in the alternative a sporting Lease of those lands. The Trust then engaged with the Club in the months following to seek a resolution of the matter and to avoid the significant cost of proceedings. However with the Club still refusing to vacate and the imperative of completing the binding contract with Aldi, the Trust were regrettably left with no option but to institute the proceedings.“However the Trust bears no ill will towards the members of Ballybofey United and hopes that the Club can ultimately realise its objective of securing a permanent home. While the Trust have always been prepared to assist them in that regard, the initiative for this lies with the Club and parties other than the Trust. In the meantime as there are issues that remain to be determined in the proceedings, it would not be appropriate to comment further at this time.”The club is taking a separate legal case against the Trust.

Presidential hopeful Sean Gallagher has received a tremendous response on his tour of Donegal.The well-known Dragon’s Den star, whose father Dan came from Killygordan, took in almost the entire county yesterday from Bundoran to Culdaff yesterday.In between he kissed babies, attended a mart, and even had his blood pressure taken at Letterkenny Shopping Centre. Mr Gallagher said he has been heartened by his placings in the polls which give him 21% of the vote and put him in second place behind Michael D Higgins.He was forced to deny newspaper claims that he only left Fianna Fail eight months ago despite claiming he left two years ago.But Mr Gallagher told Donegaldaily.com that he would take voters from Labour, Fianna Fail, Fine Gael or Sin Fein supporters.“I would take votes form anywhere. Of course I want to get votes from Fianna Fail and Fine Gael and Labour and Sinn Fein. My message is not party political. “I have stated from the outset that this is not about party politics. This is not about who wins the Presidential election for a political party.“This is about the Presidency and we need to be very clear it should remain above party politics,” he said.He said he was thoroughly enjoying his time in Donegal where he said he spent many summers.“I remember many a night in the Butt Hall in Ballybofey an fish and chips afterwards.“I know a lot of people from Donegal and I have many happy memories from here,” he said After touting the county, Mr Gallagher was the special guest of the Letterkenny Rugby Club Dinner Dance.EndsMARTS, KISSING BABIES AND BLOOD PRESSURE TESTS – ALL IN A DAY’S CANVASSING FOR GALLAGHER was last modified: October 9th, 2011 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:sean gallagher
GARDAI in rural parts of County Donegal are having to cut back on patrols – despite this being at the heart of Alan Shatter’s new ‘visible policing’ policy.And it’s all because of a ‘crazy’ new ‘efficient’ system for fixing Garda patrol cars.Gardai stationed around the county can no longer take their vehicles in to local garages to get minor repairs. Donegal Daily can reveal that in one case recently a Garda car which needed new wiper blades had to be put on the back of a breakdown truck and towed more than 40kms to Letterkenny to get those wiper blades replaced.That’s because Gardai are banned from replacing such items themselves and they are banned from using local garages who would have traditional carried out such minor repairs, often without a fee involved.Officers are also forbidden to drive cars with even minor defects on health and safety grounds.There have been several similar incidents. In one case a station was left without a patrol car for almost three days because a repair which could have been carried out locally was instead also transferred to Letterkenny.Rank and file Gardai in Donegal say this is ‘typical’ of some policies which might work well in Dublin, but do not suit large rural counties.“It’s a case of the Government putting in measures which they think will save money and end up costing a great deal more,” one Garda told Donegal Daily.“Colleagues across the county are frustrated by yet another policy which affects the ability to do our jobs.“And this is one policy that is also costing the State more money. It’s supposed to be efficient but it’s not – it’s just crazy.” https://twitter.com/DonegalDailyREVEALED: DONEGAL GARDA PATROL CARS OFF THE ROAD DUE TO ‘CRAZY’ MAINTENANCE CONTRACTS was last modified: May 14th, 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:REVEALED: DONEGAL GARDA PATROL CARS OFF THE ROAD DUE TO ‘CRAZY’ MAINTENANCE CONTRACTS
Tags: AFCON 2019BurundiGroup BGuineaMadagascarNeby KeitaNigeriaSaido Berehinotop Neby Keita is a doubt for Sunday’s game. (PHOTO/Agency)AFCON 2019Burundi vs GuineaAl Salaam Stadium, Cairo Sunday, 30-06-2019 @7pmBurundi will take on Guinea in their last group game of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, at the Al Salaam Stadium in Cairo on Sunday.Both sides are in the brink of elimination after failing to win either of their first two games at this year’s competition in Egypt.Both sides require victory on Sunday and not even a draw can save either of them.The Swallows who are appearing at their maiden finals sit bottom of Group B having lost 0-1 to both Madagascar and Nigeria.After losing their first game against Nigeria 1-0, Burundi were again defeated by Madagascar in similar fashion, defending well with no pressure exerted at the other end and eventually conceding late and in the process losing once again.Victory against Guinea looks unlikely at this stage having failed to find the back of the net in either of their opening two contests.Captain and star-player Saido Berahino is currently struggling for form up front and Burundi look like falling short even if they opt to pull him out of the firing line.For Guinea, they were narrowly defeated by Nigeria in the second game, to leave their hopes of progression to the knockout stages of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations hanging by a thread.They enter into Sunday’s game needing to beat Burundi and pray they are one of the four best third placed teams after the group stages are completed.In a tight game that was evenly-matched, Nigeria eventually broke the deadlock with just 17 minutes remaining to condemn the Guineans to defeat and leave them with just one point from their two games so far.Star-player, Naby Keita was forced off against Nigeria and could be a doubt for this game after he was on the end of some heavy challenges on his first start since the beginning of May following a groin injury.Keita and his peers will be tasked with trying to replicate the form that saw them score twice against Madagascar but will be tasked to keep it tight at the back so as they avoid conceding as much as they did on group opening day.This will be the first time these two sides ever meet and with too much, including pride at stake, it promises to be a contest for the ages.The other group B game between leaders Nigeria and second placed Madagascar will be played on the same day and time.Other games to be played on Sunday-Uganda vs Egypt @11pm-Zimbabwe vs DR Congo @11pmSaturday’s results-Mauritania 0-0 Angola-Cameroon 0-0 Ghana-Benin 0-0 Guinea-BissauComments

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With no confirmed cases in Ohio and no immediate threat of a Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (avian flu) outbreak, Ohio Agriculture Director David T. Daniels and State Veterinarian Dr. Tony Forshey today rescinded the order prohibiting bird shows in Ohio. Officials urge poultry and bird owners, however, to remain vigilant and cautious in order to protect the health of their flocks during migration seasons. Please see the department’s fact sheet on precautions that can be done to prevent the spread of avian flu.The order, issued on June 2, 2015, was originally intended to remain in place until April 2016. The ban included county and independent fairs, the Ohio State Fair, and all other gatherings of birds for show or for sale, including auctions and swap meets. Throughout the nationwide outbreak, the department worked closely with Ohio’s poultry producers and the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service to provide training and to closely monitor the health of poultry in the state.“Ohio is home to more than 50 million domestic birds which makes our state particularly vulnerable to an outbreak. Thankfully, the disease never took hold here. I believe this is a justification of the steps taken by our producers and exhibitors to mitigate the risk of an outbreak,” said Director Daniels.The avian flu is an extremely contagious virus that primarily affects domestic poultry and is likely spread by wild, migrating birds. The USDA first confirmed the virus in the U.S. beginning in late 2014. While there were no confirmed cases of the disease in Ohio, throughout the spring and summer of 2015 more than 48 million birds nationally were affected. On November 18, the World Organization for AnimalHealth (known as the OIE) issued its final report on the deadly avian flu outbreaks which declared that the outbreaks in all affected states are now final, closed, and resolved. This now makes the United States free of avian influenza for the time being.One of the ways avian influenza spreads is by direct contact with contaminated materials coming from other infected birds. Exhibitions, auctions and swap meets where birds are co‐mingling pose a high risk of unintentionally spreading disease. While the intention is to allow bird exhibitions to be held next year, an outbreak in Ohio or nearby states may require the reinstatement or even an extension of the ban.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Two fully dry days are before us here as we move through today and tomorrow. We should see good sun each day, as the low pressure circulation from this most recent system lifts northeast toward Hudson Bay. We will remain cool, but relatively close to normal for this time of year.On Friday we have a little batch of moisture streaking in for the morning hours from US 30 northward, and in there we cant rule out a shower or two. Moisture availability is low, so if we see anything, we would be looking more at a few hundredths. But, we will keep our eyes open there. The rest of the state (and the rest of the day, really) will turn out partly to mostly sunny.There is a good bit of uncertainty around the arrival of our next well organized system for the entire state. Some models are bringing in action as soon as Friday late afternoon and evening, but keeping moisture totals low, while other models are giving a little more of a dry window ahead of the system, keeping it out until later Saturday and early Sunday, but bringing significantly larger rain totals. The known is that we will see rain, at some point late week and weekend, and the most general totals will be .25″-1″. However, timing and intensity are still tough to pin down right now…so we will wait for more data later today.10 day rain potentialBehind that system we do go dry relatively quickly, and stay mostly sunny and dry through next Tuesday. Temps will be cool to start, but will moderate again by Tuesday afternoon. A cold front moves in quickly next Wednesday, triggering showers over most of Ohio. We expect rain totals to be .1″-.1″ over 80% of Ohio, but we may have a slightly higher focus along and north of I-70. Behind that front we finish the 10 day window with sunshine, a few clouds and colder air again.The extended window continues that dry pattern with partly sunny skies for Saturday the 2nd. On the 3rd we see scattered showers over southern and southwest Ohio, but nothing anywhere else, and moisture totals will be pretty minor. After a dry start to the first week of November, we see rain on Tuesday the 5th with totals from .5″-1.5″ and coverage at 90%. Dry to finish the 11-16 day window with partly sunny skies and another good chill for the 6th and 7th.
