AFL Engineers Construct ETUs Across Liberia

first_imgThe Engineers Company of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), with logistical and technical support from the US Army, has started the construction of nine Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs) in seven of Liberia’s 15 counties. The construction work began last month when an AFL Engineering team of 20, assisted by technicians from the US SEABEES started reconnaissance in the selected counties.The counties to benefit are Lofa, Bong, Margibi, Grand Bassa, Bomi, Grand Cape Mount and Nimba. Two ETU sites are to be erected in Lofa (Voinjama and Zorzor) while another two will be built in Nimba at the Ganta Methodist Hospital and the Jackson F. Doe Memorial Hospital in Tappita.The rest of the ETUs will be located in strategic areas of the remaining five counties namely in the Bong Mines area and Totota, BRE Compound, Own Your Own Community, Tubmanburg Government Hospital and Sinje.The surveys, Bill of Quantities and structure designs for the various ETU sites were done by the AFL engineers. They will double their strength to 40 in order to simultaneously construct three ETUs in Bomi, Bassa and Grand Cape Mount Counties, respectively. Those ETUs will take five to 12 days to be completed and presented to Government. During a recent ground-breaking ceremony at the ETU construction site in Tubmanburg last Friday, AFL Chief of Staff (COS) Brigadier General Daniel D. Ziankahn, upon receiving the building materials, acknowledged the U S Military and the AFL joint operation that was launching the construction of many ETUs throughout the country. General Ziankhan said the project would last for five to 12 weeks, and when finished would accommodate 80 to 100 beds.AFL Engineers were already in Grand Bassa County carrying out geological surveys, the COS said, adding that the land capacity depends on how much each county authority would provide for the 30 units intended for the area identified. The AFL which has now rolled out into civil-military operations, according to its COS, is doing everything to support the health sector, an indication that the military can transition from time to time while remaining committed to serving its people and nation. For his part, Brigadier General Peter Corey of the U S Department of Defense (DOD) added that their support is tied to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which is the lead federal agency responsible for the U.S. response to fighting Ebola and assisting the Liberian Government.The United States DOD, he said, is providing financial, technical and logistical assistance in partnership with the AFL and in support of the civilian leadership.General Corey said the DOD will not provide treatment however, leaving that role to other agencies and USAID as well as the Liberian Government to determine who manages and provides healthcare at the various ETUs upon their completion.The ETUs being constructed will go into service at once for the treatment of individuals suffering from the deadly Ebola virus disease that has taken away the lives of many Liberians.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Charlie Lake sewer lagoon temporary solution to the PRRD’s dumping concerns

first_imgOutgoing Director of Electoral Area C, Arthur Hadland says the new operation will only accept domestic sewage and will not be accessible to industry.Industry is one of the factors that led Fort St. John to make this decision in August of 2013, as they say it was based on changes to the Federal Sewer Regulations and the legal liability the city is exposed to in accepting waste from outside the community, including, but not limited to illegal dumping.“I am very relieved that the Electoral Area Directors are seeking a solution to the problem facing the rural residents,” Mayor Lori Ackerman said in a written statement. “The liability risk for the taxpayers in Fort St. John was just too great for the city to continue to provide this service.”- Advertisement -This is somewhat of a temporary solution, as the permit one, subject to public approval, is building new sub-regional sewage functions for all four rural electoral areas.“Staff has been working long hours to address this situation,” PRRD Chair, Karen Goodings said in a separate written statement. “It is important for rural residents to clearly understand that this is an interim solution pending the establishment of a water and sewer function.”The PRRD says details of the temporary site at Charlie Lake, such as how the public can access it, will be announced at a later date once approval is secured by the Ministry of Environment.Advertisementlast_img read more

Gor crowned 2017 KPL champions with four matches to spare

first_img0Shares0000Gor Mahia fans at the Kasarani stadium during a past Kenyan Premier League match. PHOTO /Raymond Makhaya.NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 21- A 1-0 win over Ulinzi Stars on Saturday in Kericho saw Gor Mahia crowned  the 2017 Kenyan Premier League champions for a record 16th time with four matches to spare, moving mathematically clear of the chasing opposition.Heading into the match, Gor needed just a point to ensure they clinch the title, but they went the full distance, beating the military side courtesy of Meddie Kagere’s goal on the quarter hour mark, his 11th goal of the Premier League campaign. The win sees Gor move 18 points clear of second placed Sofapaka.From the onset, Gor who drew with Ulinzi Stars in the first-leg in Kisumu were in Kericho for business. George Blackberry Odhiambo saw a shot whisk wide in the 12th minute after Timothy Odhiambo’s feeble punch from a Jacques Tuyisenge header fell kindly on his path.Three minutes later, K’Ogalo scored what would be the goal that wins them the championship when Kagere simply beat Ulinzi keeper Timothy Odhiambo one-on-one after picking up a defense splitting pass from Francis Kahata.Meddie Kagere celebrating after scoring the all important goal as Gor beat Ulinzi Stars 1-0 to be crowned the 2-17 KPL champions. Photo/COURTESYK’Ogalo should have gone two up in the 22nd minute but Tuyisenge failed to convert with the keeper only to beat after the Ulinzi defense once again caught in shambles this time from a Kenneth Muguna pass.A minute later, Muguna had a chance for himself when he rose high in the midst of Ulinzi markers to meet a Tuyisenge cross, but he could not get a firm thump to it with the ball falling kindly into Odhiambo’s arms.Under the light showers and slippery conditions of the pitch, Gor were dictating play and had pressed Ulinzi into their own half, despite the soldiers fielding a near full strength squad after the return of several first team players.The soldiers had to wait until the 25th minute for their first effort at goal, emanating from a Bernard Ongoma shot which did little to trouble the Gor keeper as it sailed wide.In the 29th minute, Mohammed Hassan tried his luck with a freekick from the edge of the box after Harun Shakava had hacked down Samuel Onyango, but the ball could only sail wide, Ulinzi again failing to hit the bull’s eye.Ulinzi Stars head coach Benjamin Nyangweso gives instructions to his players.Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso was forced to reshuffle his tactical cards, pulling out Boniface Onyango who had been overwhelmed on his return from injury and bringing in under-20 title winning skipper Ibrahim Shambi.But Gor still kept their surge and Brian Birgen was forced to clear the ball off the line in the 32nd minute after Blackberry had tapped the ball away from the Ulinzi keeper.On the other end five minutes later, Musa Mohammed also cleared the ball off the line for Gor, keeping off Onyango’s shot from the right with the winger having sprung up past Wellington Ochieng.-Second half-In the second half, Ulinzi started off with another change, this time Kasuti coming off for Daniel Waweru who had been rested for the first time this season. Ulinzi’s attacking flow upped a bit, but still they couldn’t trouble Gor much.Kagere had another one-on-one chance against Ulinzi’s Odhiambo in the 65th minute, but he couldn’t complete his double, placing the ball wide.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Mourinho welcomes end of Lukaku goal drought

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s striker Romelu Lukaku celebrates after scoring on September 17, 2017LONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 20 – Jose Mourinho said he was delighted to see Romelu Lukaku back on the scoresheet after a barren spell as Manchester United try to keep runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City in their sights.Paul Pogba, returning after two months on the sidelines, was the driving force as United returned to form with a 4-1 Premier League thrashing of Newcastle at Old Trafford. The Frenchman set up a goal and scored another before Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his long-awaited comeback from a knee injury as a late substitute.But the gloss was provided by Lukaku, who lashed a ferocious shot into the roof of the net for United’s fourth. It was his first goal for the club since September after a barren run of seven games.During that drought manager Mourinho had leaped to the Belgian’s defence in the face of frustration from fans, describing him as “untouchable in my team”.“He is a striker and strikers like to score goals,” said Mourinho. “It is not a problem for me if he works like he always does and he doesn’t score goals but for their self-esteem, their confidence, strikers like to score goals.“He was not doing that for us for a few matches and then all that can affect strikers’ confidence. I was really happy that he scored that goal.”Lukaku’s effort capped a fine comeback from United that kept City’s lead at the top of the table to eight points after Newcastle scored first.The result meant Mourinho came out victorious from his first meeting with old adversary Rafael Benitez in a decade.“We didn’t start well but I don’t blame my players. I blame — in the positive sense — Benitez,” said the United boss.“Very experienced, very intelligent — the team was very well-organised. They started very well, creating us problems and we couldn’t play at the same time they were creating those problems in our defensive areas.“The goal was like a wake-up call and the team reacted very well. The second half was ours. We had control, we had goals, we had beautiful actions.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
