Contrary to rumors about the death of South Africa’s ailing first black President, Nelson Mandela, his daughter has announced that her dad is putting up a courageous fight from his “deathbed.”Ms. Makaziwe Mandela told national broadcaster SABC that the anti-apartheid icon was “still with us, strong, courageous”.”Even for a lack of a better word… on his deathbed he is teaching us lessons – lessons in patience, in love, lessons of tolerance,” she added.Ninety-five-year Mandela, who once carried a Liberian passport during the Apartheid era in South Africa, is receiving home-based medical care.He was discharged from hospital in September after being treated for nearly three months for a recurring lung infection.There are times where I have to pinch myself that I come from this man who is a fighter,” Makaziwe said.Mr Mandela is widely respected for his role in fighting racism in South Africa, and for forgiving his former white captors after his release from prison in 1990.He spent 27 years in jail and was elected South Africa’s first black president in 1994. He stepped down after five years in office.”Every moment I get with him I’m amazed,” Ms Mandela told SABC.”There are times where I have to pinch myself that I come from this man who is a fighter even though you can see he is struggling, but the fighting spirit is still there with him.”Mr Mandela’s grandson, Ndaba Mandela, told SABC that the ex-president was “not doing well in bed”.Last month, Mr Mandela’s ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela said he was no longer talking “because of all the tubes that are in his mouth to clear [fluid from] the lungs”.The South African presidency has repeatedly described Mr Mandela’s condition as critical but stable.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Civil Defence Commission (CDC) on Thursday opened another round of consultations for the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Bill, which is geared at finalising a comprehensive document to target disaster risk management and response in Guyana. The consultations were held at the Pegasus Hotel.Director General of the CDC, Lieutenant Colonel Kester CraigFederico Suarez, Programme Officer/Attaché of the Delegation of the European UnionSome of the participants at the consultationsSpeaking at the consultation, which targeted national and sectoral stakeholders, Director General of the CDC, Lieutenant Colonel Kester Craig, said the consultation would garner inputs on the Bill in a bid to ensure there is a robust and comprehensive document that can deal with effective disaster risk management across the country.“This activity is one of the many that we have to ensure we can get feedback (on). Today we are at a critical juncture in the development and enhancement of our disaster risk management mechanism. It is about 15 years since Guyana experienced its worst disaster, (which had) affected about 66 per cent of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Since then, several measures were taken by all stakeholders to further enhance and develop our risk management mechanism. We have developed several plans, policies, framework and guidance which create the basis for the development of our Disaster Risk Management Bill. This bill is a very comprehensive one,” he stated.According to the Department of Public Information (DPI), the CDC is currently receiving technical support in this stride under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF) and Services for the Implementation of External Aid 2018 (SIEA) Framework’s “Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and Resilience” Programme through the European Union.Federico Suarez, Programme Officer/Attaché of the Delegation of the European Union to Guyana and Suriname, and with responsibility for Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba and St. Maarten, in his remarks, said the process is a transparent and comprehensive approach to drafting the Bill.“We have been working on this for the last year and a half, so we are happy to have this workshop here today. We appreciate that the stakeholders are here to contribute to this process. The European Union is not only focusing on sea and river defence and coastal management; we are also looking at the legislative agenda. I know this will bring benefit to the people of Guyana,” he said.Legislative Drafting Expert Chris Hedley, addressing stakeholders at the meeting, said that consultations are a key component in developing the legislation, because they provide a different perspective, which would aid in providing a more integrated perspective in the development of the Bill.Last week, the CDC hosted its first public consultation with members of civil and Guyanese society. The CDC is working to have the Bill submitted to the Attorney General’s Chambers by the end of June for formatting, before it is taken to Cabinet.
…temporary service offeredFollowing the suspension of services offered by the MV Canawaima Ferry, which plies the Suriname-Guyana route, due to technical issues, the Management of the Guyana-Suriname Ferry Service has announced that the MB Sandaka will ply the route to assist stranded passengers to return home.The MB Sandaka vesselOn Monday, it was revealed that the services of the MV Canawaima would be suspended to facilitate the necessary rehabilitation works. However, at the time of that announcement, no alternative systems were put in place, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded in both countries. However, after much outcry, the management of the ferry service announced on Tuesday that the MB Sandaka will service this route between May 31 and June 2, 2019, to facilitate the stranded passengers.“It will depart Moleson Creek Terminal-Guyana at 09:00hrs (check-in: 06:30hrs to 08:00hrs) and depart South Drain-Suriname at 11:30hrs (check-in: 08:00hrs-10:00hrs) – their respective local times,” the Public Infrastructure Ministry posted on its Facebook page.The notice stated that the alternative vessel is not outfitted to facilitate 20 and 40 feet containers and trucks with height and width in excess of three metres and 2.7 metres respectively.The MB Sandaka, which was also recently rehabilitated, usually services the Leguan to Parika route but has plied the Guyana-Suriname route in the past when the MV Canawaima was undergoing maintenance.Public Infrastructure Minister, David Patterson told Guyana Times on Monday that the MV Canawaima vessel was being powered by a tug for some time now which has encountered some issues.He was unable to say how much the rehabilitation project would cost since the Surinamese, he said, will be responsible for rectifying the issues.He was also unable to say how long the service would be down given the fact that Surinamese will be working on the boat.Meanwhile, Terminal Manager Gale Culley-Greene is quoted by the Department of Public Information (DPI) as saying that the Canawaima Ferry has been experiencing mechanical difficulties for some time and a decision was taken to have the vessel assessed and repaired.She further disclosed that if the Canawaima Ferry is docked, a replacement vessel would be sourced. The matter is engaging the attention of both Guyanese and Surinamese authorities.Persons who would like more information on the ferry service can contact 339-2744/ 339-2787 for more information.The Canawaima Ferry Service Inc was introduced to Guyana on October 28, 1998, under the Companies Act Number 29 of 1991 of the Laws of Guyana. It is jointly owned by the Governments of Guyana and Suriname as each country owns 50 per cent of the issued share capital.
0Shares0000Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti (R) with club chairman Bill Kenwright following Saturday’s goalless draw with Arsenal © AFP / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 22 – Carlo Ancelotti has set his sights on taking Everton back into European competition after the Italian was appointed manager of “one of the greatest clubs in England”.Saturday saw the Merseyside team announce that Ancelotti had become their new permanent manager on a four-and-a-half year contract. The 60-year-old then watched from the stands at Goodison Park as Everton played out a goalless draw with Arsenal, who have appointed former Toffees favourite Mikel Arteta as their new manager.“I’m excited to be here at one of the greatest clubs in England,” Ancelotti told the club’s in-house TV channel in his first interview since his appointment.The draw with Arsenal left Everton 15th in the Premier League and just four points above the relegation zone.Nevertheless Ancelotti, a three-time Champions League winning coach who was sacked by Napoli this month, said Everton should aim high.“The ambition is for us to try to win and be competitive,” he added.“The goal is there to reach the Champions League or Europa League. Winning honours has to be the dream for this club and for the supporters. I am here to try to do this.”Ancelotti guided Chelsea to a league and FA Cup double in 2010 in his first spell in England.“Our goal is to be competitive in the Premier League, to be towards the top of the table, to be competitive in Europe,” he said.“It’s not going to happen straight away, but we have to work for this.“To Evertonians I would like to say, stay with the team as you always do because it’s really important for the players to have your support.“I would like to work together with the supporters. My dream is to bring success to this club.”– Ferguson to stay at club –Meanwhile Everton chairman Bill Kenwright congratulated the club’s majority shareholder, Farhad Moshiri, for bringing in a manager of Ancelotti’s standing.The Italian’s trophy-laden CV includes stints at a clutch of Europe’s top clubs, including Juventus, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.“I have to take my hat off to Farhad,” said Kenwright.“We interviewed a lot of people and Farhad was pushing for a world-class manager.“He wants this team to be where he’s wanted it to be for three-and-a-half years. He wants this club to be winning trophies.”Caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson will remain on Ancelotti’s staff.The former Everton striker oversaw a win over Chelsea, draws with Manchester United and Arsenal and a League Cup loss on penalties to Leicester in his four-game spell at the helm following the sacking of Marco Silva.Ancelotti’s first game in charge of Everton is set to be the Boxing Day clash at home to Burnley.0Shares0000(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)

2 And asked on Thursday whether he was the world’s best player, on form, his answer was unequivocal.“Yes,” he said. “The team is helping me a lot also. I can improve for sure. We can always improve in football. We can score more goals, more assists.”Hazard was heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu after helping Belgium to third place at the World Cup. However, after weeks of speculation, he ended up staying at Stamford Bridge.Reports from Spain earlier this week suggested Real would try to prise the forward from Chelsea in January, although such a move would come at a premium price.And it appears Real will now have to wait until next summer, when Hazard will have just 12 months of his contract remaining, to make their move, knowing Chelsea would be reluctant to risk losing him for nothing the following year. 2 The Belgian ace, whose contract runs until June 2020, has already admitted he has always dreamed of becoming a Real Madrid player and would be interested in joining them in the future.Hazard has, though, appeared to dismiss the possibility of a January move to the Bernabeu.The 27-year-old, who revealed earlier this week he is toiling over whether to stay at Chelsea or go to Spain, again addressed his future during a media conference on national team duty with Belgium.It was put to the Blues star that to win the Ballon d’Or – and be crowned the world’s best player – he would have to play in Spain.“That’s why I want to go, maybe,” said a smiling Hazard.Asked if that move might happen in January, he added: “No.”Hazard has been in sparkling form this season, claiming eight goals and three assists in ten appearances for Chelsea. Hazard has been on fire for Chelsea Eden Hazard has said he will NOT leave Chelsea to join Real Madrid in the January transfer window.But the Blues ace has done little else to dispel to ongoing rumours linking him with a sensational switch to Spain.
