Zogoes For AFL?

first_imgDefense Minister Samukai: “Brumskine’s call for Zogoes’ recruitment into the AFL is a flagrant disservice to the country….and partners”Authorities at the Ministry of National Defense (MOD) in Monrovia have sharply reacted to a recent call to recruit wayward and drug-addicted Liberian youth, otherwise known as “Zogoes,” into the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).The ministry said its attention has been drawn to a statement attributed to Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine, political leader of the opposition Liberty Party, calling for the recruitment of Zogoes into the national army.“We will use the AFL as a vehicle to assist with the development of our country. We will establish auxiliary units such as the agriculture and engineering battalions, and in the medical department, in which Zogoes and other troubled youth, as well as average young Liberians who may so desire, to be trained as carpenters, painters, masons, electricians, plumbers, and farmers,” Brumskine said at a recent rally.In no unmistakable term, the MOD said it totally disagrees with any and all future Commanders-in-Chief who harbor the desire of conducting political recruitment of “Zogoes” into the AFL.“Such action on the part of any future Liberian leader has the propensity to summarily dampen the professional content of the force and it points to a deliberate breach of the legal requirements for eligibility for service into the AFL and the method of recruitment as articulated in sections 7.2 and 7.3 of the New National Defense Act respectively,” the Ministry said in a statement.Additionally, the statement continued, “applicants have to be approved by the Joint Personnel Board (comprising a representative each from the civil society, the U.S. government, the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), and chaired by the Minister of National Defense).”The MOD further views Brumskine’s call for recruiting Zogoes into the AFL as a flagrant disservice to the efforts of United Nations, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), as well as other bilateral partners, particularly the United States government, which have over the years invested both human and material resources aimed at creating a professional, properly trained and equipped security apparatus that is apolitical and subordinated to the Constitution of Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Three things we learned from the FA Cup final

first_img0Shares0000Antonio Conte got the better of old adversary Jose Mourinho as Chelsea won their eighth FA Cup© AFP Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, May 19 – Chelsea beat Manchester United 1-0 in the FA Cup final on Saturday as Eden Hazard scored the winner with a first-half penalty.Here are three things we learned from the Wembley showpiece: Conte out-wits MourinhoJose Mourinho congratulated his rival Antonio Conte, while Chelsea’s backroom staff rushed in to celebrate with the boss. Photo/DAILY MAILIn what could prove to be his final match as Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte enjoyed a sweet moment of vindication as he won his battle with old rival Jose Mourinho.Conte had spent much of the season locked in a vitriolic feud with United boss Mourinho and although both claimed to have buried the hatchet this week, there was no doubting the Italian’s desire to beat his nemesis.Conte played his part in Chelsea’s success, sending them out on the front foot in the first half and then ordering them to soak up United’s pressure after the interval.It was a risky gambit but one that produced a handsome reward.Yet Conte is aware his future at Chelsea is precarious after 12 months of tension behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge and their failure to qualify for the Champions League.“Our job is very difficult. Sometimes you can win but the club decides to sack you anyway,” he said recently.Conte’s dismissal would not be without precedent — two years ago, United sacked manager Louis van Gaal within hours of winning the FA Cup.It remains to be seen whether the Italian suffers the same fate after leading Chelsea to their first FA Cup since 2012.For Mourinho, it was a rare disappointment on the big stage as he was beaten for only the third time in his 15 appearances in cup finals with Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and United.Criticised for adopting a cautious approach in United’s biggest games this season, Mourinho once again paid the price for being too conservative in the first half.Mourinho had instructed Ander Herrera to stick close to Hazard, but that man-marking role left United out-numbered in midfield — and the Belgian made and scored the winner anyway.United improved in the second half, but it was too late to stop Mourinho finishing the season empty-handed as Conte celebrated.United stars fail to shinePaul Pogba — and his fellow big-money signing Alexis Sanchez — struggled to make an impact on Saturday© AFP Glyn KIRKPaul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez cost United over £120 million in total transfer fees, with their combined weekly wages amounting to around £500,000-per-week.But all that eye-watering investment bought United was the latest in a long list of underwhelming displays from their supposed superstars.Former Arsenal forward Sanchez had scored eight goals in as many games at Wembley for club and country, but in keeping with his lacklustre start to life with United, he was largely anonymous against Chelsea.It didn’t help that Pogba once again played for long periods as though engaged in nothing more serious than a Sunday kickabout in the park.The duo’s lack of cohesion was encapsulated in the second half when Pogba and Sanchez fell over one after the other as the France midfielder’s miscued pass to the Chilean was intercepted to stifle a United break.Pogba was so out of sorts that he didn’t even hit the target with a late header that could have forced extra-time.Hazard makes his case Eden Hazard was the difference between the sides as his winner helped Chelsea put the memories of last year’s final defeat to bed© AFP Ian KINGTONHazard was the lynchpin of Chelsea’s two Premier League title triumphs over the last four seasons, but, like many of his team-mates, this had been something of a lost year for the Belgium playmaker.The 27-year-old had sparked talk of a move to Real Madrid this week when he flexed his muscles with Chelsea’s hierarchy, insisting he wanted to see who they sign in the close-season before deciding whether to sign a new contract.But if that was concerning for Chelsea fans, they could at least take heart from Hazard’s whole-hearted commitment to tormenting United’s over-matched defence.Phil Jones was brutally exposed when Hazard caught him out of position with a sublime touch in the 22nd minute, accelerating away from the United defender, who responded by conceding a penalty that the unruffled Chelsea star converted with nonchalant ease.It was only Hazard’s second goal in his last 16 appearances.But it was his crafty contributions that kept Chelsea in control as the Belgian, who departed to a standing ovation, won the FA Cup for the first time.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more


first_imgMore than 500 line dancers from throughout Ireland were stepping it out in Jackson’s Hotel in Ballybofey last weekend when the Western Dance Association of Ireland held their All-Ireland finals.This was the first occasion that the Association have held their national finals in Donegal and the event proved a great boon to the entire area, with all Hotels and bed and breakfast and catering establishments booked out for the entire weekend. The Western Dance Association of Ireland was formed in 1998 and has been running the All Ireland Line Dance competition every year since. This year they chose Donegal as their venue and the organisers were highly complementary of the facilities and the welcome afforded them.Helen Doris, the principal organiser, said the two day event was one of their most successful ever and the 500 dancers who took to the floor in the new Finn Suite in the Hotel were high in their praise of the real Donegal “cead mile failte” afforded to them and the estimated two hundred supporters accompanying them.“Everyone had a great time in Ballybofey over the weekend. We had seven judges, three of them coming from the United Kingdom and Sweden who praised the high standard on offer. They commented that the dancing was of the highest degree and socially, everyone had a great time”, Doris commented.Line Dancing is a competitively new phenomena in the North West but is gaining in popularity all the time. It was notable over the weekend that many of the competitors and supporters were teenagers, both male and female, although quite a number were older. “Line Dancing is a great way of expressing dance in a relaxing manner and is suitable for all age groups. It has grown by leaps and bounds over the past decade or so and the resurgence of country and western music over the past decade has meant that those taking part now have a tremendous outlet for it” a representative for the Association concluded.WHY THEY’RE ‘LINING’ UP TO DANCE IN BALLYBOFEY was last modified: April 16th, 2013 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:Jackson’s HotelLINEDANCINGlast_img read more
