George Kailondo, the man who reportedly extended an invite to fallen GT Bank Manager, Dan Orogun, for a cruise on his luxury boat near his home on the Robertsfield Highway, has finally broken silence about what might have actually happened. Mr. Kailondo, in a press conference on Friday, February 12, held at his business center in Monrovia, denied allegations by Orogun’s family that he is responsible for his death, saying he was also bereaved by his death.“I did not kill a fly, even when I was down, and can’t do such now in the name of getting rich because income has increased. I have been silent because of the death of a friend and brother. We were together almost all the time and shared things in common, especially during the weekend,” Mr. Kailondo said.He said he was surprised by the false allegations made by the family, stating that, “Mr. Orogun’s presence at my place was based on the invitation sent to him through a telephone call; Mr. Orogun called me to have a boat ride with him; I did not invite him.” He maintained that the invitation for the boat ride with the former GT bank manager was not the first time. He said two of them previously met on October 24, 2015.“If we were not at my hotel, we would have been at another Nigerian guy’s hotel around the King’s FM building,” Mr. Kailondo said. Mr. Orogun was more than a friend to me; I considered him as my brother.” Mr. Orogun’s suspicious drowning came to light when his remains were discovered on January 24 in a river near Kailondo’s home.Fingers have since been pointed at Mr. Kailondo, who was reported to be with Orogun on the ride.People’s suspicion of Kailondo’s involvement in Mr. Orogun’s death intensified when the spokesman of the Orogun family, Mr. Felix Orogun, said the blood of their deceased brother is on the head of Mr. Kailondo.Mr. Kailondo, in reaction to the report of his involvement at a press conference in Monrovia over the weekend, broke silence, noting that he has no hand in the death of someone he considers “a friend and brother.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
…one day after he was detained Marlon Fredericks, who was arrested on Saturday afternoon on Robb Street, Georgetown following a high drama chase by officers attached to the City Constabulary, was on Sunday shot dead, reportedly in front of his mother.A City Constabulary Lance Corporal has been taken into Police custody following the fatal shooting of the 34-year-old man from Tiger Bay, Georgetown.The body of the dead manAccording to the Guyana Police Force, the incident occurred at around 13:15hrs outside of the City Constabulary Outpost located on Regent Street, Georgetown.Reports indicate that Fredricks was shot by the City Constabulary Lance Corporal as he was attempting to escape from the said Outpost.The Guyana Times understands that the dead man allegedly forced his way outside of the lockup when it was opened to let out another prisoner to use the toilet.A struggle reportedly ensued between the victim and the Lance Corporal who tried to restrain him, and in the process the prisoner (victim) ran out the Outpost and was fatally shot once in the lower back by the Lance Corporal who was armed with a service pistol.This publication was informed that Fredricks was shot in the presence of his mother, Claudette Fredricks – who is the Editor of the First Look morning programme aired daily on Channel 9 television.However, following the man’s killing, scores of persons who witnessed the incident flocked the scene and accused the Lance Corporal of murder, revealing that excessive force was used.“Is murder! That man could have been apprehended. If you see the condition that he was already in. The man whole head had bandage up because of the beating he get yesterday (Saturday) when they arrest he. Them murder that man!” one angry eyewitness declared at the crime scene.“After they shoot he the man was still alive, and nobody made any attempt to call for an ambulance; he just get left right there to dead!” another person said.Some of the angry onlookers broke out in a moving rendition of the song ‘How many more Jah!’ as they called for justice for Frederick.This newspaper previously reported of Frederick’s arrest by Lance Corporal Adam Hoyte, who pursued the man wanted for questioning in a simple larceny matter.It was reported that after he was apprehended, Fredrick began to fight Hoyte for his service pistol – a 9mm Tauras – which was in his holster at his waist.In that process, the firearm discharged one round; however, no one was shot. Both men received injuries to their heads as a result of the scuffle.Fredericks was later subdued, but a video seen by this publication shows a random man walking up to Fredrick as he was left lying on the ground and dealing him several kicks to his head.The injured man was then escorted to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC), where he was treated and was being kept for observation.The body is presently at the Lyken Funeral Home awaiting a post-mortem today. The weapon, along with eight live rounds and a spent shell, has been lodged as investigations continue. (Kizzy Coleman)
A task force of the nation’s mayors is calling for the federal government to create a lifetime learning savings account for every child born in the country – beginning with a $500 deposit – as part of an overall strategy to ease poverty. The task force, chaired by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, said the proposal calls for the government to match up to $500 a year in the accounts for 18 years to help pay for higher education or job training. The program could cost $23 billion a year, according to the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ panel, which also called for increased federal investment in preschool and education to boost the middle class and reduce the number of working poor. The mayors said the federal government also should make more money available to underserved neighborhoods by offering tax credits and incentives to draw financial institutions to the areas. “We believe the government must work with its private-sector partners to boost upward mobility and grow the middle class,” the report said. firstname.lastname@example.org (213) 978-0390 MAYORS’ LIST Poverty-fighting proposals by the U.S. Conference of Mayors: Invest $19.4 billion in universal preschool programs.

You’re all set! And they recommended changes in federal tax policy to increase deductions for the poor and broaden use of the Earned Income Tax Credit. Villaraigosa and mayors from around the country are scheduled to meet Friday in Florida to review the panel’s proposals and others dealing with poverty. “The United States is the most prosperous, economically competitive nation in the world,” the panel said in its report. “Yet as mayors of America’s largest cities, we are observing sweeping changes in this country that pose serious new challenges to the mobility of workers into the middle class as well as to American prosperity in general.” The problems facing the middle class and cities are growing as the number of working poor rises. Complicating the situation is the growing cost of retirement for the baby boomer generation, increasing globalization of jobs and an increase in single-parent households. But with those problems come opportunities to create a better-skilled work force, officials said.
Special Olympics Africa last week moved to incorporate the youth in creating awareness and acceptance of people with special needs in the continent.“In Africa we have a hidden population that needs to be included in the community. We are targeting more unified sports activities to curb discrimination and I believe the inclusion of youth is the best way to go,” Special Olympics Africa president, Charles Nyambe said at a workshop that hosted respective Special Olympics youth leaders and National Directors from Africa in South Africa.In a bid to attain this Special Olympics Kenya has made a step to engage the youth as a way of empowering the young generation to lead a dignity revolution and change social norms besides creating a lifetime of acceptance, appreciation, and inclusion for people with differences.Speaking during the Special Olympics Africa Regional Youth and Unified School Workshop in Johannesburg, South Africa, Special Olympics Kenya national director, Susan Masila said the inclusion of the young generation in their activities will be a plus to building a unified generation.“By drawing young peoples’ attention to the gifts of people with ID through sports and other activities, misperceptions are broken down, negative attitudes are tackled and their tremendous potential is highlighted,” Susan noted.“The Special Olympics Global Youth Plan focuses on achieving these and as Kenya we want to work closely with the youth to achieve our goal. We can only tap on the energy, curiosity and openness of the youth to breed true transformation and build a unified generation,”she added.Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, providing training and competitions to 5 million athletes and Unified States Sports partners in 172 countries.To qualify for the Special Olympics, a person must be at least 8 years old and identified by an agency or professional as having one of the special conditions.

As federations continue pleading with the government to come to their aid financially especially the Kenya Rugby Union who threatened to pull out the Kenya 7s and 15s teams from international assignments, the Treasury CS said funding for sports will be enhanced.“To support sports culture and arts I have allocated 200 milling shillings for construction of Sports Academy and 300 million shillings for construction of ultra modern national library. Funding for Sports Culture and Arts will be enhanced significantly with the creation of the new fund that will receive money from the taxation of betting and gamming,” Rotich announced.-Betting penalty-SportPesa Chief Executive Officer Ronald Karauri during a past event.

1 David Gold West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has outlined the club’s ambition to hire an ‘established’ manager to replace Sam Allardyce.The Hammers parted company with the 60-year-old at the end of the campaign as the former Bolton boss completed his fourth season in charge at Upton Park.Gold revealed that the East London club are aiming to bring a manager that has had experience and success in the leading divisions in world football.In an interview with the club’s official website, Gold said: “We would like somoene who has managed succesfully in one of the major leagues in the world.“We want to bring in an established manager who has been there and done it.”
“I think this is a game that everyone wanted to see last year, but it never materialized,” he said. “I have a lot of respect for La Canada and coach Tom Hofman. We both played for coach (George) Terzian (at Pasadena High in the 1970s), so our teams are similar in a lot of respects.” What a game it would have been a year ago. La Canada was much deeper, with point guard Craig Ballard and center Phillip Anderson to go with Rhett Anderson and brothers Abe and Adam Malik. Pasadena, which advanced to the CIF-Southern Section Division II-AA championship game, had one of the best defensive teams in the state. The Bulldogs had unsung seniors Artis Gant and Sean Powell to go with Star-News Player of the Year Kyle Austin. “How would we have done last year?” Hofman wondered. “If we played them 10 times, we’d probably win five times and they would have won five times.” The Spartans still have Rhett Anderson and the Malik brothers for Saturday’s game, and the Bulldogs have Austin, guard Trevon Harmon and emerging standout Kevin Dancer. But if there is one intangible that separates Pasadena and La Canada over the years, it’s the Bulldogs’ willingness to take on all comers outside the San Gabriel Valley. The Spartans remain home in their back yard and usually play just one or two genuinely difficult games prior to the CIF playoffs. Pasadena, (16-3), ranked No. 1 in Division I-A, has to be the favorite in this one because of how it’s carried itself outside the valley boundaries. The Bulldogs have beaten Division II’s top-ranked team, Colony, and have wins over other Southern Section powers Rancho Cucamonga, Los Osos and Santa Barbara. Two of their three losses have come against arguably the top team in California, Artesia, and the No. 2-rated team in Nevada, Bishop Gorman. The Spartans (14-2), ranked No. 3 in Division III-AA behind Artesia and Santa Margarita, have built their reputation by staying home in local tournaments, where they’re usually overwhelming favorites. The Spartans beat Pomona to win the Arroyo Tournament, beat Keppel to win the La Salle/Temple City Tournament and lost to South High of Torrance in the championship game of their own Tournament. The most intriguing fact about the Spartans isn’t whom they’ve beaten, but what happened in a troubling nonleague loss to La Salle (53-52) and why they needed overtime to defeat Keppel (64-62). The Spartans haven’t been tested in league in recent years, and some believe their lack of quality nonleague opponents has hurt their preparation for the playoffs. The Spartans were 20-0 when they faced their first tough test last year and lost to Colony in the shootout at APU. It was the Spartans’ only loss heading into the playoffs, where they struggled to a first-round win over Servite (57-55) and struggled in a second-round win over Northwood (49-45) before losing to Santa Margarita 55-39 in the semifinals. So for the Spartans, facing Pasadena on Saturday not only gives them a chance to be an underdog, but to find out where they stand. “There’s no question,” Hofman said. “PHS is one of the best defensive teams in the state. They’re going to test our guards and our half-court offense. This is definitely a preparation game for us, and probably more so for us than them.” email@example.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4485 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded cardThankfully, that’s about to change. Coaches of the top two schools in the Star-News area finally agreed it’s been long enough. The teams will face each other in a 7:30 p.m. game of Saturday’s Southern California Shootout at Azusa Pacific University. “I didn’t realize it’s been that long,” La Canada coach Tom Hofman said. “We’re looking forward to it. “You don’t want to downplay what you have to do in (Rio Hondo) league play, but this is an important game to find out what we’re made of. From a standpoint of quality, the setting and how PHS has represented the San Gabriel Valley, there isn’t a bigger game for us than this one.” PHS coach Tim Tucker agreed. In my four years on the prep sports beat at the Star-News, the most often asked question is this: Who would win if La Canada and Pasadena played one another? For some reason, Pasadena and La Canada haven’t played each other since 1995. THEY promised they haven’t dodged each other, though the coaches at Pasadena and La Canada high schools each have their own boys basketball tournaments and can invite whomever they want. They claim it’s just coincidence that the area’s top two programs haven’t met in a nonleague game in more than a decade.
