Meanwhile, the Hummingbirds coach Marvette Anderson, said they will overcome the game two setback and wrap up the series today. “We know where we went wrong and so we are going to fix it on Saturday,’ said Anderson. “It was a bad night for our shooters, but I expect them to come back on Saturday,” she said. The Hummingbirds will look to top shooter Thristina Harwood, who netted 27 goals in the game two defeat. Harwood is expect to receive support from Shameera Sterling, Stacian Facey and Tracey-Ann Robinson. The Alfred Sangster Auditorium at the University of Technology will be buzzing with excitement today when Kingston Hummingbirds and St Ann Orchids clash in the deciding game of the best-of-three finals of the Berger Elite League. The match is set to start at 6 p.m. The Janet Guy-coached Orchids will enter today’s game oozing with confidence after they outclassed the Hummingbirds 58-39 to the level the series on Thursday. The Hummingbirds, who are seeking their second hold on the title, won the opening match 57-43. However, the Orchids, who are aiming to win the title for the first time, are highly favoured to win today’s contest. Guy said her team is highly motivated ahead of today’s contest and so she is expecting an excellent performance from them. “They are going to come strong, but we are coming too, and so we are expecting stiff competition,” said Guy. “We just have to stay on top, score off our centre passes and ensure that we execute for the entire game, and once we do this, then we will win because they are very confident,” she said. The Orchids will be depending heavily on goal shooter Sabrina Spence, who netted 43 goals from 49 attempts in the game two victory over the Hummingbirds. SUPPORTING PLAYERSlast_img read more

LIPA Certifies 25 Newly Recruited MFDP Directors, Raps on Gap

first_imgThe Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA) last Friday certified 25-newly recruited directors of the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) in strategic leadership and management in the public sector, known as Induction Training Course for Directors.The intensive weeklong orientation training is part of the new recruits’ 90-day probation on their academic and criminal records set by the MFDP, as well as a way to formally induce them in the public sector reforms of the country.Established in 1969, LIPA is the government’s center for capacity building of civil servants and the institutions at which they work.The training ran from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Monday through Friday, and representatives from the Civil Service Agency and the Governance Commission were part of the lecturing staff in the training.Some of the topics expected to be taught include: Code of Conduct, Public Financial Management Law and Regulations, Public Procurement Law and Management and Effective Organizational Communication and Time Management as well as Introduction to Public Sector Reforms, Civil Service Standing Order and Public Administration.The 25 newly recruited directors are Kpambu P. Turay, Dede D. Sandiman, Alice Williams, Gbawou C. Kowou, IV, Sidiki A. Quisia, D. Emmanuel Williams, II, Zoegar Q. Janyes, Comfort Erskine-Elliot and Lorpu Pewu-Sworh.Others were Alphonso B. Teah, Frederick B. Krah, Romeo D.N. Gbartea, Nathan F. Reeves, II, J. Mac-Nixon Flomo, Benedict D. Roberts, Bobby E. Musah, Gweh G. Tarwon and Varmu A. Reeves. The remaining directors include Ojuku T. Nyenpan, Jeremiah Barkemeni Sackie, Anthony G. Myers, Habib M. Sherif, Jesse B. Korboi, Theophilus Addey and William C. Mansfield.The newly recruited directors are all employees of the former Ministry of Finance but were recruited through a competitive vetting process recently to beef up the newly established MFDP.They have been classified into four groups: Departments of Fiscal Affairs, Administration, Economic Management and Budget & Planning.The Department of Fiscal Affairs has nine distinct operational offices, to including Directors of Non-Tax Revenue, Indirect Taxation, Modeling &Forecast, Direct Taxes, Fiscal Decentralization, Financial Approval, Treasury Services, Financial Regulations and Accounting Services. The Department of Budget & Development Planning has the second largest operational squad, namely the Directors of Budget Policy &Coordination, Social and Community Services, Economic Services, Public Administration Services, Regional & Sectoral Services, Public Investment, Monitoring & Evaluation and Planning, Development & Coordination.Others include the Directors of Administration, Human Resource, Budget and Finance Integrity, which  are under the Department of Administration; while the Directors of Aid Management, Economic  Policy and Microeconomics and Financial Policy are part of the Department of Economic Management.The Director General of LIPA, Mr. Oblayon Nyemah, spoke strongly on what he called gaps in the national government and budgetary constraints being faced by LIPA.Mr. Nyemah said LIPA is also facing logistical constraints,  arguing that for over five years there have been no vehicles for senior directors and there isn’t a bus for the general staffers.The LIPA boss urged the trainees to take on the challenge of being principal directors because they are the highest-ranking civil servants. “You are the ones the country depends on to make decisions;  it is not the political leaders, because they are not stable,” he said.The LIPA Director General said  LIPA is trying to give the Civil Servants an approach that compasses steps and glades because there are numbers of factors that make up a good civil service; one can has the academic qualifications but lacks the skill set to do a practical piece of  job.“All civil and public servants once recruited must benefit from orientation about the Civil Service Standing Order, Procurement Laws, Code of Order and other courses before going for confirmation and being employed,” the LIPA boss said. “This was a system that the country had but due to the many disruptions and interruptions in the country, governance of democracy has a big question mark on some of the unique practices.”He added: “If we want an effective, efficient and honest civil servants, they all need to pass through the walls of LIPA like as is done in other West African countries.Dr. David Kialain, a consultant at the Governance Commission (GC), urged the Directors to be professional in their jobs, a point made by the Deputy Director General of the Civil Service Agency (CSA), Othello Wah.For his part, the Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Amara Konneh,  hailed the GC, CSA and LIPA for the merger of the Finance Ministry and the Ministry of Development Planning.He urged the newly recruited Directors to avoid employing ‘bag boys’ and only employ  staffers from within the Ministry who should only be College or University graduates.Minister Konneh also admonished the Directors to work assiduously and professionally for the betterment of the country and the Ministry.Directors Zoegar Jaynes and Alice E. Williams, speaking separately on behalf of the Directors, thanked LIPA for the training as well as the CSA and GC, and assured Minister Konneh of their determination to do conscientious and honest work.However, besides the training of the 25 newly recruits Directors of MFDP, LIPA has also ended the completion of training of 41 top officers of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Kuru Kuru residents protest deplorable state of road

first_imgFrustrated parents, teachers and even students of the Kuru Kuru Primary and Secondary Schools on Monday morning took to the streets to protest the impassable condition of the main access road to the community.A section of the protestersThe road deteriorated massively over the past 18 years. Guyana Times understands the road which leads to the institutions – which are all housed on one plot – is currently lined with huge holes that cause severe damage to vehicles.Parents expressed their concern over the condition of the road, which buses would have to traverse to take their children to and from school.They referred to the holes as soars and vowed to continue protesting until the relevant authorities look into the situation.One teacher who spoke with this publication cried, “The road is very deplorable going into the Kuru Kuru College. As recent as Wednesday, there are some buses contracted… about three times they nearly turn over in the road (and they were) fully loaded with school children… we will continue until Friday, unless we have some intervention from somebody giving us some assurance that it will be done”.Guyana Times understands that hundreds of children usually use the access road to the schools, in addition to other students who take advantage of other courses being offered by the College.That teacher added, “The situation has been going on for about 18 years, but it start to deteriorate more in these latter times. Coming down to these times now, it start getting worse”.According to him, the last rehabilitation works were done several years ago and has left commuters fearful of traversing, especially while in vehicles.A parent complained too that after her son related to her that the bus he was travelling in almost toppled, she became fearful and is supporting the call for the road to be fixed as soon as possible.last_img read more

LGE results can be expected by November 13 – GECOM

first_imgThe much anticipated results of the Local Government Elections (LGE), which are to be held on Monday, November 12, can be expected by the following day.This is according to the Public Relations Officer at the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), Yolanda Warde, during a telephone interview with Guyana Times.According to Warde, after the polls are closed on Election Day, officials at GECOM will begin the counting process and results may even be available the same night.“We have some Local Authority Areas which are smaller than some but I am not sure what time they (the officers) will cease operations. That will be the call of the Returning Officer but we do not anticipate a very lengthy process,” she explained.Questioned about why the process may not be lengthy and whether there may not be a massive turn out to the polls, Warde said she does not want to speculate as she is unable to determine turnout.Earlier this year, some $2.9 billion was allocated to GECOM for the hosting of LGEs which is only three days away.Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan had noted that the allocation will go towards voter education as it was much needed.“It is an opportunity that is being offered to citizens to elect a council that will have responsibility for the management of whatever area you live in,” he said.Candidates for Guyana’s major political parties and other smaller players on September 21 presented their lists of candidates to Returning Officers at offices of GECOM for the Local Authority Areas in which they are contesting.GECOM has disclosed that seven political parties, 21 voluntary groups and 33 individuals are vying for victories in some or all of the LLAs. The Alliance For Change (AFC) and the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) are contesting in all municipalities and Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDC), while the People’s Progressive Party/Civic is contesting in 80 LAAs.The United Republic Party (URP) and the United Party for National Growth and Development are competing in all LAAs, while the Guyana National Congress (GNC) is expected to submit candidates for LAAs in Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica) only. The GNC party will meanwhile only contest in all of the 10 municipalities. These 10 include the city of Georgetown and nine towns.The towns are Mabaruma in Region One (Barima-Waini); Anna Regina in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam); New Amsterdam (the country’s oldest), Corriverton and Rose Hall in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne). Additionally, candidates will contest in Bartica in Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni); Mahdia in Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni); Lethem in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) and Linden (Upper Demerara-Berbice).Some of the 21 voluntary groups contesting include Independent Group for Local Development in the Best/Klien Pouderoyen NDC; People’s Village Movement in Diamond Place/Golden Grove; and the Kwakwani United for Progress (KUFP) contesting in Kwakwani NDC.Meanwhile, 33 individuals are vying to be representatives in 26 constituencies across the country. These include Phyllis Carter in Constituency Four in the Mora/Parika NDC and Ronald M Griffith in Constituency Seven of Wakenaam Island NDC.There are 12 persons contesting in various constituencies in Georgetown, which is the largest LAA. This list includes Malcolm De Freitas who had also contested in Constituency One at the last LGE which was held in March 2016. For this November polls, Rajendra Bissessar will contest in the Buxton/Foulis NDC in Constituency Six, while Omeshwar Sirikishun will contest Constituency Four of Bloomfield/Whim.Only the political parties, voluntary groups and individuals with approved symbols to contest LGE 2018 were allowed to submit their lists of candidates, having used the prescribed GECOM forms. These lists will be examined by the Returning Officers to determine whether they were properly submitted in accordance with the relevant laws.last_img read more

Police to monitor usage of pedestrian overpasses

first_imgThe Public Infrastructure Ministry is currently in the process of implementing measures which will enable Police to monitor the use of the pedestrian overpasses erected along the East Bank of Demerara.One of the new structuresThis is according to the subject Minister, David Patterson who told Guyana Times that these final works should be completed shortly to allow pedestrians to use the elevators.“The elevators are working, the elevators are installed (and) everything is completed but we just need to fully put them into operation. There is a security issue which we are addressing”.Patterson made it clear that the overpasses have no default and the Ministry is just trying to ensure that the commodity itself is secured as well as the pedestrians who will be using it.“You want to ensure that there is adequate security available 24 hours before it will be in use for 24 hours so that’s the only thing we are doing as we speak…the Police will be able to monitor the usage of the overpasses so that’s what we’re working out,” he added.When asked when the elevators will be operation he said “eminently”.To further ensure that the elevators are properly used, the Ministry in September last announced plans to train persons on the safe usage of the new structures.At present, there are five pedestrian overpasses located at Houston, Eccles, Peter’s Hall, Providence and Diamond.Ten lifts were sourced from Sweden earlier in 2018 and two were installed; one on each side of the crosswalk.Construction of the pedestrian overpasses commenced mid-2017 and was almost completed by December 2017.The contract for the overpasses at Houston, Eccles and Peter’s Hall was awarded to B&J Civil Works for the sum of US$1,034,326.Meanwhile, there were separate contracts for the Providence and Diamond overpasses which were both awarded to S Jagmohan Hardware Supplies and Construction Services to the tune of US$364,247 and US$364,727 respectively.Trinidadian supervision firm RM Engineering Ltd was recruited to oversee the construction of the overpasses.The introduction of these flyovers was intended not only to reduce the high level of road carnage but to eliminate traffic congestion along the East Bank Road, which is said to be the busiest in the country.While many concerns were raised about the time it takes to walk the flight of stairs, the Public Infrastructure Ministry noted previously that this guarantees safety.last_img read more

ULSTER SENIOR LEAGUE REPORTS: SWILLY ROVERS AND KILDRUM TIGERS PROGRESS IN KNOCKALLA CARAVANS CUP

first_imgUSL Results & Reports 28.04.134 Lanterns Ulster Senior LeagueCockhill Celtic 0 0 Finn Harps Reserves Knockalla Caravans Cup quarter-finalsDrumkeen Utd. 2 4 Swilly Rovers (aet)Kildrum Tigers 1 0 Derry City Res.Fanad Utd. v Letterkenny Rovers (playing Monday) ReportsUlster Senior LeaguePremier DivisionCockhill Celtic FC – 0Finn Harps FC Res – 0 Played in blustery conditions with the occasional rain shower it was Finn Harps, the visitors to the Charlie O’Donnell Sports Grounds, who looked the happier off the two sides at the final whistle. Indeed the men from the ‘Twin Towns’ could have snatched it late on, when Michael Doherty threatened to steal a win that they, if honest, never looked like winning.Cockhill, the home side, had the lions share off possession throughout the game and had numerous chances to go in front; striker Aiden O’Donnell had a difficult chance on 8 minutes but his lob went harmlessly wide after a neat pass from Jimmy Bradley. Finn Harps wide man Gary Merritt had a good run down the right wing on 11minutes but his ball went straight across the six yard line with no Harps jersey in sight. Harps suffered a blow on 19 minutes when the injured Stephen O’Donnell was replaced by Cathal McDaid. Cockhills skipper Liam O’Donnell then headed wide another chance from 6 yards after a Gerry Gill corner on 31minutes; two minutes later the home side produced the move off the game that resulted in a low left foot drive from Gerry Gill only to be denied by Harps keeper Michael Lynch who produced a great save with his left leg. Former Harps keeper Gavin Cullen then misjudged a Harps corner on 40 minutes which clipped the crossbar before going wideCockhill were themselves forced into a change on 48 minutes when Garbhain Friel replaced the injured Gerard McLaughlin. Cockhills Paul McKinney had a shot, from a tight angle, saved by Lynch on 57 minutes with the loose ball eventually cleared by the alert Aaron O’Hagan. Lynch was forced into another smart save after Gill found space to shot from the edge of the area. The game started to become stretched and more open as we entered the final quarter; Harps substitute Cathal McDaid was unlucky with a scooped effort on 68 minutes as he spotted Cullen off his line but as the keeper raced back the ball cleared the bar. Harps had another scare on 70 minutes when Gill raced onto a long clearance by Cullen to shot goal wards; Gills effort was too much for Lynch with the keeper lucky to have the covering Josh Mailey clear the danger as the ball headed for the net. Cockhills big goal chance came on 73 minutes when Aiden O’Donnell got on the end off a low cross from the right only to rush his effort when unmarked and blaze over from 6 yards. As the game entered the final 15 minutes Harps Michael Doherty came to life with some neat passages off play and on 81 minutes Doherty picked the ball up wide on the left cut inside two tackles before getting into the box past another tired tackle and hitting a powerful effort that keeper Cullen parried at full stretch to his right for a corner that came to no avail. In the final action of note and with little over 5 minutes remaining Cockhill substitute Derek Doherty produced a good cross from the right but Mailer again cleared the danger with Friel ready to pounce.Knockalla Caravans Cup Drumkeen Utd 2Swilly Rovers 4Drumkeen went into lead after 10 minutes when a corner from Brendan Bonner was knocked out to Luke O Farrell who shot home from 10yds. Some slack marking in the home defence when a through ball by Laurence Toland found the home rearguard sleeping and Ronan Curtis ran through to shoot home from 12 yds to level for the visitors. A Brendan Bonner free kick put the home 2-1 up when he shot into the bottom corner from 25yds to leave it 2-1 at half time to the home side. Drumkeen had plenty of chances to put the game out of sight but could not score from close in on at least three occasions. Drumkeen were to rue their missed chances with three minutes remaining when Keith Hegarty scored for Swilly to send the game into extra time. Swilly went into the lead for the first time when Michael Mc Hugh scored before Drumkeen had a chance to draw level but missed a penalty. The veteran Mc Hugh scored a second to put Swilly into the semi final.
