Chinese chef shot, robbed outside Campbellville home

first_imgA 28-year-old Chinese national is currently hospitalised with a single gunshot wound to his leg after he was robbed and shot by gunmen outside his home.The injured man has been identified as Coa Ben Fei, a chef of Bonasika Street, Section K Campbellville, Greater Georgetown. According to Police reports, the incident occurred around 00:05h on Sunday.It was reported that the victim had just pulled up in front of his house, exited his motor car and opened the gate, when he was confronted by three men. One of the men was armed with a handgun and held him at gunpoint. The men then proceeded to relieve him of his cell phone, a chain and ,000 cash.After robbing the Chinese national of his belongings, the armed suspect shot him in the upper right thigh after which the bandits escaped in a dark-coloured motor car.The injured man was picked up and rushed to the Woodlands Hospital, where he underwent surgery. He is still hospitalised, but his condition has been listed as stable.Meanwhile, investigators have retrieved a 9mm spent shell at the scene. No arrests have been made as yet, but investigations are ongoing.Over the past weeks, several businesses owned by Chinese nationals were robbed. Only Thursday last, armed bandits beat and robbed Chinese nationals who were operating a supermarket.Based on reports, four men on two Honda CG motorcycles pulled up in front of Prance Chinese Supermarket at Crown Dam, Industry, East Coast Demerara, two of them stayed outside to keep guard while the others rushed into the business place.They held the cashier and the owner at gunpoint, and demanded money. At the time of the robbery, around 14:30h, there were no customers in the supermarket. One of the bandits then gun-butted the cashier and continued to make demands. Another worker who was close by was also struck to the head.Out of fear, the cashier opened the register and handed over the money and a quantity of phone cards. Not satisfied, the bandit went around the cashier’s counter and pulled out a bag containing an undisclosed sum of money. He reportedly placed the bag on the counter and the second gunman collected it, as he waved his gun at the cashier, threatening her.The perpetrators then left the supermarket, jumped onto the waiting motorcycles and fled the scene. No arrest has been made.last_img read more

Top runners run into draws

first_imgGFF Elite League III…The in-form Fruta Conquerors took on the dogged defending champs Guyana Defence Force (GDF) in the first battle of a double-header as action in the Guyana Football Federation’s (GFF’s) Elite League III continued at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) Ground last night. But contrary to popular expectation, they were held to a 1-1 draw.Part of the ongoing action in the GFF III Elite LeagueIn what many thought would be an exhibition of domination, considering the Conquerors’ stupendous form, each team proverbially broke an arm and a leg in trying their best to penetrate the other’s defence; but this was futile, as the half time score of 0-0 would suggest.Undaunted by the self-sacrificing army men, Conquerors managed to score a goal in the 66th minute when Domini Garnett pierced that back of the GDF net.But in the face of almost certain defeat, the valiant GDF miraculously produced an equaliser in the three minutes of extra time the referee had added to the game when Sherwyn Caesar planted a bomb deep in the Conquerors’ domain a mere second before the final whistle.Ryan Hackett tries to attack against GDFIn the other match of the night, Western Tigers FC battled Den Amstel to a 1 – 1 draw as well.Scores remained level at half-time, but 14 minutes into the second half, Ryan Adolph managed to slip one in to give the Tigers the lead.Den Amstel needed to make something happen fast, and in the 79th minute it did, when Jamaal Harvey scored the equalizer.The rest of the match was straightforward, as both teams defended well to end the night even.last_img read more

2018 Review: Gor, Sharks shine domestically

first_imgThe record Kenyan champions however ended the year with their charismatic head coach Dylan Kerr leaving the club for South African top tier side Black Leopards.Coincidentally, Kerr’s first match in charge at Gor was the friendly against Everton in Tanzania in July 2017 and his last was also against the Toffees, in another friendly match in November in Liverpool, United Kingdom.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr waves to Kenyan fans who cheered on their team after their historic SportPesa Trophy friendly match at the Goodison Park Stadium in Liverpool, United Kingdom on November 6, 2018.But despite his departure, Kerr left with a flowery CV and a place forever in the heart of Gor Mahia fans.Gor kicked off the campaign with a good start, just but exiting the CAF Champions League. Gor lost 1-0 on aggregate to would-be champions Esperance in the first round of the African elite club competition and dropped to the Confederations Cup.They made it to the group stages for the first time ever after beating South Africa’s SuperSport United on the away goal rule in the play-off round.At the groups though, Gor had a superb chance to make it into the quarter finals, but a home loss to Rwanda’s Rayon Sport threw the dream into the furnace. Gor beat Tanzania’s Yanga home and away and picked a point against USM Alger at home and Rayon away.A win or a draw against Rayon in Nairobi would have seen them make the quarters, but Gor lost 2-1 and complicated their chances. They travelled to Algeria needing a win against Alger, but ended up losing and dropping off the race for the quarters by a point.At this time, Gor were embroiled in a bitter transfer row with Ugandan Godfrey Walusimbi who had ‘sneaked’ away to join South African side Kaizer Chiefs and for a long time, Gor’s lowly performance was blamed on the hole at left back caused by Jaja Walu’s departure.Gor Mahia players celebrate after beating Tanzania’s Simba SC 2-0 in the SportPesa Super Cup final at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 10, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluBut Gor still enjoyed some cherry toppings on their 2018 cake as they defended the SportPesa Super Cup with a 2-0 victory over Tanzanian giants Simba in Nakuru, a result that saw them earn the prestigious opportunity of travelling to Liverpool to face Everton FC in a friendly.Gor became the first ever African club to play at the Goodison Park and though at the end of the 90 minutes they ended up 4-0 losers, the experience and memories picked up from their trip to the English city will forever be firmed in their memories.Prior to travelling to England to face Everton, Gor Mahia played Championship side Hull City in the SportPesa Trophy game at the Kasarani Stadium, a match that they lost on penalties after a barren draw in regulation time.It was a historic match with the Kasarani Stadium filled to the rafters as football loving Kenyans thronged the Kenyan football cathedral to watch the historic tie.Also, Gor represented Kenya at the CECAFA Kagame Cup in Tanzania finishing third after losing to Azam FC in the semi-finals.Meanwhile, Kariobangi Sharks picked up their first ever major silverware winning the Shield after edging out Sofapaka 3-2 in a thrilling finale at Kasarani.Kariobangi Sharks midfielder Vincent Wasambo vies for the ball with Asante Kotoko’s Abdul Ganity during a CAF Confederations Cup first round match at the Kasarani Stadium on December 15, 2018.

Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYAAnd just as has been the norm, coaches came and went and as always, it was AFC Leopards who topped the turnover standings.Ingwe started the season with Robert Matano, the tactician who had guided them to the FKF Shield title the previous year. However, the tactician was fired barely two months into the season and Tanzanian Dennis Kitambi took over.However, Kitambi had to leave in May for Bangladesh and the club hired Argentine Rodolfo Zapata who weathered the Ingwe storm of politics till October when he finally gave in and left, Tom Juma picking up on interim basis.At the end of the 2018 campaign, AFC hired Serb Nikola Kavazovic, but the coach left barely a month in the job ‘to attend to personal issues’. It was later to emerge that the former Township Rollers boss was sneaking in a move to South Africa.When it finally worked out, he terminated his contract and would be assistant Marko Vasiljevic took charge.Tusker FC started the campaign with Ugandan Sam Timbe at the helm, but the former Sofapaka tactician was fired in April.Matano who had been working at Bidco United was approached for a second coming to Ruaraka and he heeded the call, pushing the brewers to a third spot finish having found them flirting with relegation.Ex-Sofapaka FC head coach Sam Ssimbwa reacts angrily on the touchline during a Kenyan Premier League clash against Bandari at the Camp Toyoyo on May 1, 2017.

Mike Mururi left Kakamega Homeboyz for Vihiga United to replace Edward Manoah.At Homeboyz, owner Cleophas Shimanyula picked on 2016 league winning coach Paul Nkata as the man in charge.Paul Odhiambo moved from Chemelil to Sony after the exit of Salim Babu while Francis Baraza who had worked as assistant to Timbe at Tusker rejoined Chemelil.Only Gor Mahia, Kariobangi Sharks, Mathare United, Wazito and Thika United finished the season with the same coach that started with them.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Kariobangi Sharks players celebrate after winning the 2018 Football Kenya Federation Shield at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on October 20.

LAX leader proposes charging OC to fly

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Zifkin dusted off the failed idea to make Orange County literally pay for placing a series of growth caps at John Wayne Airport near Newport Beach, while also voting down an international airport at a decommissioned Marine Corps air station at El Toro. “Their decision to burden LAX should be shared, and I believe a fee would be a very appropriate way to do that,” said Zifkin, an executive with the William Morris Agency. “If this is something we are able to do, it is something that needs to be discussed.” But Orange County residents said their wallets shouldn’t be squeezed by Los Angeles. “LAX is the principal airport in the region, and it’s just natural for people to use it because it’s the only way people can get to certain destinations,” said Leonard Kranser, a south Orange County resident who successfully led the opposition to building an airport at the El Toro air station. “Slapping a fee against us will only increase antagonism and create some showmanship in the political arena,” he said. “Their thinking is as parochial as Orange County deciding to charge L.A. residents to access Disneyland or our beaches. We aren’t the only county using LAX.” By Art Marroquin STAFF WRITER Share the burden or cough up the cash. That’s the message airport commissioner Walter Zifkin sent this week by suggesting Orange County residents be charged a special fee to use Los Angeles International Airport. In a survey of nearly 28,000 passengers flying out of LAX last year, 13 percent came from Orange County, according to figures provided by Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that operates the airport. In contrast, 77.7 percent of the airport’s passengers came from Los Angeles County, while about 9.3 percent of those surveyed came from a combination of San Bernardino, Riverside, Ventura, San Diego and counties designated as “other.” LAX served more than 61 million passengers last year, but city officials agreed to limit the airport’s growth to 78.9 million passengers annually and seek out ways to regionalize air traffic to other local airports under the terms of a settlement reached in 2005 with the county, three cities and the community group Alliance for a Regional Solution to Airport Congestion. The Los Angeles Mayor’s Office did not return several phone calls seeking comment on Zifkin’s proposal. Denny Schneider, ARSAC’s president, called the plan “confusing.” “Of course I would encourage Orange County to start taking a portion of the air traffic burden, but I’m not sure how they would implement this,” Schneider said. “If they can make it work, then it would be great.” Zifkin brought up the proposal Tuesday just before the airport commission agreed to seek out a contractor to install a cashless taxi cab fee collection system at LAX. Zifkin suggested that a similar automatic payment system be put in place for Orange County residents making their way to LAX by cab or limousine. “That idea triggered in my mind that we could use some sort of electronic pass for them to get into the airport,” Zifkin said. “We need to seriously find out whether or not there’s a way to do this.” Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, said he had not heard about Zifkin’s request for a study. He said it’s unclear whether such a fee would be legal. Zifkin said a report could come before the Board of Airport Commissioners in as soon as two weeks. This isn’t the first time a Los Angeles airport commissioner has asked city lawyers to determine whether it would be legal to single out Orange County residents for a fee to use the airport. Back in 2000, Leland Wong and airport commissioners appointed by then-Mayor Richard Riordan called on the City Attorney’s Office to develop creative measures to force Orange County residents to pay a fee to use LAX. The plan turned out to be illegal under federal laws. Two years later, former Assemblyman George Nakano introduced a bill that suggested counties refusing to build airports to serve their share of the region’s air traffic should forfeit state transportation funds. While the state Legislature approved Nakano’s measure, it was eventually vetoed by then-Gov. Gray Davis. But the return of such a proposal demonstrates the frustration among some in Los Angeles who want to divert air traffic from LAX to other Southern California airports. City officials are studying Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl’s proposal to charge a road toll to motorists driving from outside Los Angeles County to LAX. Funds raised from the toll would go toward transportation projects, including a 2-mile extension of the Metro Green Line to LAX. While Rosendahl’s plan doesn’t single out Orange County the way Zifkin’s does, the councilman said his neighbors to the south should step up efforts to share the burden of the region’s increasing air traffic. “I want to work with Orange County, but these fees are a good thing to look into,” said Rosendahl, whose district includes LAX. “Orange County still doesn’t see that we’re all in this together, but we hope that changes over time.” Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach disputed Rosendahl’s claim, pointing to a major expansion effort under way at John Wayne Airport. A new terminal with six gates is slated for completion in four years. “I get the sense that LAX doesn’t want to play ball with us, and I’m a little disappointed because we are stepping up to the plate,” said Moorlach, whose district includes John Wayne Airport. “This fee proposal only undermines any kind of relationship we’re trying to build.” Orange County officials agreed to limit John Wayne Airport to 10.3 million passengers, growing incrementally to 10.8 million passengers by 2015. A curfew limiting the hours airplanes can land and take off at the Orange County airport remains in place until 2020, under a settlement reached in 1985 between the county and Newport Beach residents who were upset about living beneath the airport’s flight path. Renewed efforts are under way to keep the airport from growing any further, according to Newport Beach resident Melinda Seely, president of AirFair, a community group launched five years ago to limit growth at John Wayne Airport. “We don’t want to see growth at John Wayne, but we really lost out with El Toro,” said Seely, who explained that the airport issue had exploded into a near-civil war that pitted northern Orange County residents against their neighbors to the south. “I know we’re talking out of both sides of our mouth in some people’s estimation, but we really don’t feel that we can handle any more traffic at John Wayne,” Seely said. “We would much rather send the traffic somewhere else.” The Marine Corps air station at El Toro was decommissioned in 1999 but had four runways that were immediately capable of handling commercial flights. Orange County residents balked at the airport concept, however. They approved a proposal in 2002 to convert the 4,700-acre air station into a giant park rather than an international airport that would have served 18 million to 28 million passengers annually. “I’ve always thought it was a shame that we lost the opportunity to have a ready-made commercial airfield that could have become an important airport,” Zifkin said. “I don’t know if Orange County is even concerned with the problems we have at LAX. Their vote showed that they are only concerned with themselves.” art.marroquin@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
