Birthday-boy ‘Blackberry’ named August best

first_img0Shares0000Gor Mahia winger George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo poses with his August 2017 player of the month award at the club’s training base in Nairobi. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, KENYA, Oct 25- Gor Mahia winger George’ Blackberry’ Odhiambo received a befitting birthday gift on Wednesday after being crowned the Kenyan Premier League player of the month for August, beating off stiff competition from compatriot Jacques Tuyisenge.His humongous displays for K’Ogalo in that month saw Kenya’s most decorated club emasculate Nakumatt, Muhoroni Youth twice, Posta Rangers and came from behind to earn a crucial point against fierce rivals AFC Leopards. Blackberry crucially scored in two matches and provided three assists in the rest of the games hence putting himself in contention for the month’s gong.“I am very pleased to win this award because as a player, everything you do you work hard to get something. I am really happy to be awarded but the hard work continues. We have four games remaining in the league and now we work hard to finish strongly,” the winger said.He received hearty congratulations from his coach Dylan Kerr who said he fully deserved the award.“He has worked very hard and I think he deserves to be awarded. Also, I think the entire team has worked hard and if you asked me all my players deserve an award for the work they have put in,” the coach who joined Gor in July this year said.Gor Mahia winger George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo poses with his coach Dylan Kerr as he received the August 2017 player of the month award at the club’s training base in Nairobi. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaIn the final vote conducted by the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya football committee, Odhiambo garnered 18 votes, edging out Tuyisenge by a single vote in a winner-takes-it-all affair while Kasumba of collected 13 votes.The three players made it to the final shortlist from a wider nominee’s list that also had Sony Sugar’s Amos Asembeka, Yemi Mwana, Mathare United’s Chrispin Oduor and Godfrey Walusimbi.Despite rocketing his name to the skyline’s of Kenyan football in 2010 when he was crowned footballer of the year, Odhiambo endured a downward spiral after moving to Danish club Randers at the turn of the 2011 season.He struggled to get playing time and later after two seasons moved to Tanzanian outfit Azam where despite starting well ended up going down in form again.He returned to the country where he briefly trained with City Stars as he attempted to resuscitate his career and before the season started in 2013 moved to Armenia where he played for top tier clubs FC Shirak and Ullises.He moved back to the country in 2014 joining his former club Gor Mahia and from there, it was an uphill task of getting his form back on top.This season has been his best yet, having contributed directly to 11 Gor Mahia goals, scoring five and assisting six.Gor Mahia winger George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo controls the ball under keen watch from teammate Boniface Omondi at the club’s training base in Nairobi on October 25, 2017.

To be honest it had been a difficult period but I knew what I wanted and I knew at the end of the day, I would be back to the top,” the winger whose year was capped with a return to the national team said.With his Gor Mahia contract running out at the end of the season, he is yet to ascertain whether he will pen a new deal.“I have offers from three teams but I have not yet made a decision. My agent will work on things and then at the end of the season I will make a decision but I cannot rule out anything,” the forward opined.The gong, which is co-sponsored by betting firm Sportesa and South Korean manufactures LG Electronics, yields a 49 Inch LG television and Sh100,000 to feted players as well as Sh50,000 for the rest of the squad.Gor Mahia winger George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo is congratulated by teammates after being named the August 2017 KPL player of the month.

first_imgMORE DETAILS of the horrific death of Co Donegal man William McKeeney emerged in a Scottish court today where two men are charged with his racially-motivated murder.Mr McKeeney, from Malin Head, was allegedly kicked to death by two men in an attack on Melville Street in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow in January.His partner witnessed the attack from the flat they shared – and last Friday’s court heard how the incident was heard on a mobile phone. The jury in the trial of Adel Ishaq and Asif Rehman was today shown graphic post mortem photographs of Mr McKeeney’s body.A patholgist told his murder trial that his injuries were similar to those sustained by somebody who had fallen from a high building or been knocked over by a car.Dr McAdam told the High Court in Kilmarnock that the 57-year-old suffered 15 injuries to the head, some of which were so severe that footprints were left on his skin.She also said that there were three injuries to his body, but these were only discovered on internal examination.She said that one blow had ruptured his diaphragm and another had ruptured the splenic artery, a major blood vessel.She told the jury that the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the abdomen, with blunt force trauma to the head a contributory factor.The court has heard that labourer Mr McKeeney had been walking home from a local pub when he was attacked. He died later in hospital.The accused men deny murder.The prosecution allege that Donegal man was attacked because he was white.MURDERED DONEGAL MAN WAS KICKED SO HARD, FOOTPRINTS WERE LEFT ON HIS SKIN was last modified: October 9th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:FOOTPRINTS WERE LEFT ON HIS SKINMURDERED DONEGAL MAN WAS KICKED SO HARDwilliam mckeeneylast_img read more

Implant contraceptive ‘to curb teen pregnancies’

first_img28 February 2014 Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi on Thursday unveiled a new sub-dermal implant contraceptive that, from June, will be freely available to South African women at state clinics countrywide. The contraceptive device, which is implanted below the skin of the arm and is effective for up to three years, is expected to help reduce both the number of unwanted and teenage pregnancies and the number of maternal deaths in the country. Motsoaledi unveiled the new device at the Ethafeni Clinic in Tembisa, east of Johannesburg during the launch of his department’s revised Contraceptive and Fertility Planning Policy and Service Delivery Guidelines. Speaking at the launch, Motsoaledi said the National Development Plan (NDP) required all South Africans to work together to reduce the burden of disease, in particular of maternal and child mortality. He said a committee tasked with visiting all hospitals, public and private, to collect data on women who died as a result of pregnancies, had found that 8% of the roughly one-million women who fell pregnant in South Africa every year were girls below the age of 18. He said these minors were giving birth to 80 000 unplanned babies annually. “They contribute to 36% of all maternal deaths, because they are too young to fall pregnant. They easily die … due to issues like hypertension.” However, the minister said, the new contraceptive was also meant for married women who were advised by their doctors not to fall pregnant again following previous pregnancy-related complications. Once inserted, the device is effective for three years. “You no longer have to go to the hospital every three months, you’ll now go after three years. But if you want to have a baby before three years, you just come and ask us to remove it.” Motsoaledi said 2 000 nurses had so far been trained on how to insert the device, and that 4 000 nurses would have been trained by the time the contraceptive become available at clinics from June. Ntulikazi Mbatha (24) from Tembisa, who was one of the first recipients of the new device, said she was happy that there were no side-effects, unlike the injection, which she said had increased her appetite and led to weight gain. “The most exciting part is that I won’t default or have to go the clinic every three months – my next visit to the clinic will be 2016,” Mbatha said. “With the device I can plan my future properly, and I think it would be good for teenagers to use it as well so that they can finish their studies.” Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini described the device as liberating for women. “This gives us an opportunity to respond to the challenges that we are facing. With this [device] our children will finish school and take care of families out of poverty … It’s freedom for our children.” Deputy Economic Development Minister Hlengiwe Mkhize said that if young girls were prevented from falling pregnant they could remain in school and complete their studies. “We endorse this initiative … It will contribute to the economy of the country.” Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
