admin No Comments

first_imgBy Kristen MacklingamThe daughter of the murdered East Bank Essequibo (EBE) businessman Habiboodean, has confessed to arranging her father’s murder.Habiboodean’s daughter, 50, turned herself in at the Leonora Police Station, West Coast Demerara (WCD), on Wednesday and has also implicated other persons in her father’s death. This includes Linden Lewis, 28, called “Bullet” who was in police custody.The woman along with four other suspects had been arrested earlier this week and law enforcement officials continue to search for a fifth suspect in the businessman’s murder which happened place in 2008.Habiboodean, 77, who was the owner of a gas station at Ruby, EBE, died at a hospital after being badly beaten in his home on February 15, 2008.The dead businessman’s daughter, and his former employee of Vergenoegen, EBE, had been charged with the murder at that time, but the case was subsequently dismissed owing to insufficient evidence.This cold case has now been reopened by investigators following a breakthrough last week when one of the four persons arrested for the murder of Mohamed Munir, 75, and his wife, Bibi Munir, 69, who were burnt to death in their Good Hope, EBE home, said he had knowledge of Habiboodean’s death.Lewis, aka “Bullet”, during interrogation, told investigators that he was the hit man behind Habiboodean’s murder.last_img read more

Saveway Mall Installs First Escalator in Liberia

admin No Comments

first_imgAmidst the proliferation and high competition in the supermarket sector, one of Liberia’s oldest supermarkets, SAVEWAY MALL, has installed the first ever escalator in the country. The escalator has been installed and recently launched in the supermarket, located at ELWA Junction, in Paynesville to carry (transport) customers between the first and newly constructed second floor. An escalator is a type of vertical transportation in the form of a moving staircase – a conveyor transport device for carrying people between floors of a building. The device consists of a motor-driven chain of individually linked steps that move up or down on tracks, allowing the step treads to remain horizontal.The General Manager of the Saveway Mall, Ziad H. Esber told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview over the weekend in Paynesville that the construction of the second floor, purchasing of the escalator and its installation as well as the goods is an investment of about US$1m.Ziad emphasized that a staff will be assigned throughout at the escalator, to educate and assist consumers of the escalator, to avoid accidents. “The usage of the escalator is just simple: when you put your feet or stand on a moving escalator, you stand still, don’t walk… when the escalator reaches you at the last stair of the floor, you walk off easily, ” Ziad said. He said on the first floor, the supermarket has food stuff, sanitation materials, cosmetics and kitchen utensils. “On the second floor are toys, home decorations, clothes, jewelry, cosmetics and kitchen utensils, “Ziad noted. “Also, we also have cigar lounge (place to smoke cigar), a mini bar, and a coffee shop (called Jeffrey’s Retro and Coffee). ” He added: “We have a secure and supervised playground for our costumers’ children… as time goes by, there will be fees charged for maintenance for the playground from costumers.” A staffer at the Saveway Mall, who asked not to be named, said though the sales growth has slowed and there is price war among the supermarkets, the Saveway Mall, is keeping its balance to meet the needs of its customers and strive to be the best amongst the rest. “The evidence is the escalator, the first ever in the country since 1847,”the staffer said. Another staffer said, “We have taken the supermarket to another level with the escalator and we are hopeful of more consumers and making them spend more when they are there.” The Daily Observer has gathered that 23 Liberians are under the employment of the Saveway Mall, five of whom are benefitting from the Saveway Scholarship Scheme. Meanwhile, the supermarket was established by a Lebanese business man, George Koussa in the ’80s, under the name, Paynesville Supermarket. The supermarket closed twice during the Liberian civil war, between 1989 and 2003. In 2009, Mr. George Koussa’ s son, Jamil Koussa took over, and renamed it, Saveway Supermarket. With the new development, it has now been renamed, “Saveway Mall.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Hart board decides to split up students

admin No Comments

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Hart High School board finally put to rest the overcrowding issue at West Ranch High School by opting to send incoming freshman classes for the next four years to two area high schools. Voting 4-1 Wednesday, the Hart Union High School District Board decided that beginning in the fall of 2007, Castaic-area freshmen will attend Valencia High School. Beginning in 2009, Castaic-area freshmen will attend West Branch High School. The incoming students at both schools will remain there until graduation. The temporary plan would alleviate the current overcrowding at West Branch High with a more permanent solution coming in 2010, when Castaic High School is scheduled to open. Despite Wednesday’s ruling, freshmen students who have older siblings at West Ranch High will still be allowed to enroll at the high school. Speaking to a packed house inside the Hart High School auditorium the board explained how difficult the decision was. “I have been spinning, conflicted, nauseous, trying to look for a solution that doesn’t impact student learning,” said Patricia Hanrion, Hart board president. Prior to the meeting, parent groups from Castaic to Stevenson’s Ranch furiously called and sent e-mails to the district in the hopes of having their individual messages heard. While some disagreed on whether students should be transferred, no one wanted it to be their child. Castaic resident Flo Lawrence was not happy with the board’s decision. “We just got hosed,” he said. In making its decision, the board turned down the district’s alternative proposal to deal with overcrowding by sending West Branch High School students across the street to Rancho Pico Junior High School for some classes. “I don’t believe high schoolers belong on the same campus as Junior High students,” said Steven Sturgeon, Hart board member. connie.llanos@dailynews.com (661) 257-5254last_img read more

Manchester City line-up v Arsenal – Ex-Gunner set to miss out?

admin No Comments

first_img1 City fans, how do you think your side will line up against Arsenal? Comment below… 1 Manchester City Manager Manuel Pellegrini After a shock defeat at home to Stoke City, defending Premier League champions Manchester City visit the Emirates Stadium, looking to get back to winning ways against Arsenal.The two teams have already met this season in the Charity Shield where a one sided game saw the Gunners run out as 3-0 winners.Looking for revenge, Manuel Pellegrini has injury problems for the lunchtime fixture, with Fernando and Stevan Jovetic both ruled out, plus Pablo Zabaleta a doubt after coming off worse in a tackle with Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski in an international friendly.With a fantastic and in-depth squad, Pellegrini will need to decide who are the right men to face Arsene Wenger’s side. The likes of Bacary Sagna, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri could all face their former side, but Pellegrini still has the options of Aleksandar Kolorov, potentially Zabaleta and Jesus Nevus to call upon.  Attacking wise, don’t be surprised to see the Chilean selecting Clichy due to his pace in an effort to keep Alexis Sanchez quiet, while using Dzeko’s strength against Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny as the foil for Aguero in attack.Possible Manchester City line-up:last_img read more

However, there was no time to celebrate their victory, as they had to play in the Ulster Intermediate Championship this afternoon.Former Donegal GAA star Martin McHugh slammed the decision to force Cloughaneely to play the day after they won the Championship as ‘absolutely disgraceful’.McHugh was commentating on yesterday’s final when he made the comments, but the injustice felt by Cloughaneely spurred them on today as they recorded an incredible victory.Trailing by six-points at half-time, Cloughaneely remarkably fought back and led by one point with a minute to go, but Castledawson had the final score and forced extra-time with the sides levee 2-11 each. Cloughaneely showed no signs of fatigue, and the resilience heart and determination on show from Joe McGarvey’s troops was inspiring.You would’ve expected extra-time to be a bridge too far, but not for this Cloughaneely side.Superb goals in either half from John Fitzgerald and John McGarvey kept Cloughaneely in-touch having had a dreadful start to the game.After twenty minutes Cloughaneely trailed Castledawson by 2-04 to 0-02.By half-time they had managed to cut the deficit to six-points thanks to a goal from the brilliant John Fitzgerald. Cloughaneely kept plugging away in the second-half and refused to lie down, they had reduced the margin to two points and then a superb goal from the lively John McGarvey seen them lead by one point with one minute left.Castledawsonstruck back to bring the game into extra-time thanks to an excellent point from Aidan McElhone.Then in extra-time Cloughaneely took command, and remarkably showed unbelievable fitness, quality and character to get over the line.Denis Boyle was superb and points in extra-time from him and Declan McGarvey eased them into a three-point lead, and incredibly that’s how it finished, 2-14 to 2-11. They started yesterday morning hoping they’d have enough to beat Buncrana and win the Donegal Intermediate Championship.However, in just over 24 hours, they’ve defeated Buncrana and also Derry champions Castledawson.What an incredible win, well done Cloughaneely, absolutely outstanding stuff.MIRACLE MEN: HEROIC CLOUGHANEELY DEFEAT CASTLEDAWSON IN ULSTER INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONSHIP was last modified: November 9th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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)last_img read more

Govt ‘fully behind’ South African mining

admin No Comments

first_img Raphela was speaking on behalf of Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu. “We should not forget that South Africa owes its industrialisation and economic diversification to the mining sector,” he said. “It was mainly on the back of mining that our country built its network of national railways, ports, power utilities, petrochemical industries and pipelines as it delved beneath the earth in search of minerals and metals.” The two-day lekgotla brought together over 1 000 representatives of government, industry and labour to map a way forward on how to improve the global competitiveness of the South African mining industry and its contribution to the country’s economy.Addressing the challenges The shortage of skills and vital infrastructure such as rail, port capacity, water and energy were obstacles to the growth and competitiveness of the industry, Raphela said. A major breakthrough in tackling these challenges was the announcement of a multi-year infrastructural programme by President Jacob Zuma in his 2012 State of the Nation address. As a result, state agencies such as Eskom and Transnet have made project announcements to alleviate the constraints on the industry. “I am convinced that, as the binding constraints on the operational side of the industry ease over the next year or two, South African mining is destined to regain its competitiveness. “We have already seen improvements in respect of the 2011 Fraser Institute mineral competitive index, which ranked South Africa 54 out of 93 countries, a 13 place improvement compared with 2010.” Also planned to contribute to the recovery of the industry is the mineral resources department’s whole scale review of its internal operational processes in order to strengthen capacity and accelerate the pace of addressing challenges. It will include a review of legislation, including the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act and the Mine Health and Safety Act. SAinfo reporter 7 June 2012 The government has pledged its full support to South African mining, and is moving to alleviate the skills and infrastructure constraints facing the industry in order help it to regain its global competitiveness. Speaking at the inaugural mining lekgotla in Midrand, Johannesburg on Tuesday, the Department of Mineral Resources’ acting director-general, Joel Raphela, said: “We should use the democratic space we now enjoy to outline a joint vision of where we want the mining industry to be in the years ahead, building on the promise and techniques of past collaboration.”last_img read more
