Action at the Eastern Regional final of the Chapa Dimba na Safaricom tournament

MACHAKOS, Kenya, Feb 8 – Isiolo Starlets will face Chuka University while Black Panthers will take on Tumaini in the girls and boys final of the Chapa Dimba na Safaricom Eastern Region finals on Sunday afternoon at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Isiolo progressed to the girls’ final after thrashing Mabuu Queens 8-0 in the first semi of the day while Chuka University had to dig deep before seeing off season one winners Ngakaa Talents 2-1 in the second semi of the day.

In the boys’ category, Tumaini were no match from Moyale’s Biashara FC as they hammered them 7-0 to set up a date against Black Panthers who progressed on post match penalties after a toughly contested 3-3 draw in regular time wit St. Daniel’s.

Isiolo were first on the Kenyatta Stadium pitch and it took them 24 minutes to get their party started when Nasibo Wario broke the deadlock.

Shortly after, the floodgates opened when Nasibo Ibrahim followed her namesake’s path in netting the second just three minutes later before Kula Dida stretched the lead to 3-0 10 minutes later.

Ibrahim then added her second of the morning three minutes to the break as the girls from Isiolo went to the breather tails up at 4-0.

They didn’t stop there and in the second half picked up the tempo on the same beat, Guyatu Halaike making it 5-0 in the 57th minute before Wario also joined the brace squad with a second in the 61st minute to make it 6-0.

The doubles of the day were not done yet as Halima Tadicha also notched her own brace within a space of four minutes, making it 7-0 in the 79th before crowning the day with another just seven minutes to the final whistle.

It wasn’t so smooth sailing for Chuka though in the second girls’ semi as they had to come from down to beat Ngakaa Talents and derail their dream of clinching their second Chapa Dimba title.

Samantha Adhiambo gave the former champions a dream start with a goal nine minutes from halftime and they looked well on course to sail to the finale.

But, they couldn’t withstand second half pressure from Chuka in the second half with Susan Wanjeri drawing her side level just four minutes after the restart.

The contest grew to enormous levels in the ensuing minutes and when it seemed that the game was headed for a tie, Wanjeri popped up once again five minutes to full time, notching the winner and sending her team to the final.

Meanwhile, Tumaini picked a leaf from Isiolo’s opening performance of the day to make light work of Biashara, who couldn’t just take care of their defending business as they shipped in seven goals.

Yasin Mohamed was the chief destroyer for Tumaini, scoring a tournament high four goals to aid his side pick the massive victory. He broke the deadlock in the 10th minute before Moses Kinama struck at the stroke of halftime to give his side a 2-0 buffer at the break.

Moris Kapirante then made in a third with eight minutes chalked off in the second half to make it 3-0. Biashara looked certain to challenge as they gave in a fight with Mustapha Abdirahman scoring on the hour mark.

But, that couldn’t go on for long as Mohamed completed his hatrick with a quick double in the 81st and 84th minute to sink Biashara’s minute hopes. Two minutes later, Kapirante scored his second and it seemed all going south for Biashara with Mohamed adding his fourth of the afternoon in the 89th minute.

The second semi was however a complete contrast of the first, as St. Daniel’s and Black Panther totally had a go at each other. A 3-3 draw in regulation time forced the game to penalties and Panthers ultimately stung the saints to win 7-6.

Jared Owili and Milton Lesuda gave St. Daniel’s a healthy 2-0 lead after 25 minutes, but complacency at the back cost them as they saw that lead wiped away within two minutes. Denis Murithi halved the deficit in the 37th minute and within a minute of him scoring, Preston Mwenda had drawn parity.

The Saints took the lead again in the 67th minute with Owili striking his second, but the hard working Panthers grabbed the equalizer with seven minutes left on the clock, Mwenda adding his second of the day.

Vybz Kartel and Mr. Vegas in heated online battle

Published

Dancehall legend Vybz Kartel has clapped back at Mr. Vegas with a scathing online statement.

This is after Mr. Vegas called out Kartel’s fans popularly known as Gaza Nation for going on a social media rant after their icon’s appeal was dismissed.

In a recent post on social media dancehall artist, Mr. Vegas spoke out about Vybz Kartel’s murder case.

A number of Gaza fans were quick to downplay the gruesome murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams as they protested for their artist to be freed from his prison cell.

Mr. Vegas said it is inhumane for the Gazanation to downplay the significance of Lizzard’s life and went on to narrate how Kartel should not be given special treatment and should serve the full sentence.

“When it comes on to the Vybz Kartel case and the people who want to put out certain rhetoric, I find them disappointing and disheartening, Now when a man a goes and says nothing when Lizard got killed cause he was a ‘nobody’, as if it’s nothing that he got killed ’cause he was a bad man, he was a murderer, he was a  killer, he did this, he did that. I find the talk very disappointing people.” He said

Kartel responded in a post that was soon deleted terming Vegas as a washed out artist.

“Da bredda still exist? First of all, I’ve made so many youths into millionaires, both in and out of music. Plus I’ve given much more [to] my parents, sisters, brothers & other relatives and personal friends. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, MY CHILDREN WORSHIP AND ADORE ME! And all my baby mamas respect me as a REAL MAN WHO LOVES HIS KIDS. So I don’t need validation from washed up celebs or from a society of criminals, the CIA consistently ranks it so HIGH in the corruption index it’s a wonder we haven’t floated to the clouds.” He said

Vybz Kartel also laughed at the Jamaican justice system stating that his incarceration has not reduced the crime rate in Jamaica.

Kartel said while the government is so concerned with keeping him captive, there have been over 12,000 more deaths since September 30, 2011, when he was first arrested.

“Impressionable little brainwashed slaves. Dem only can brainwash butu and dunce like unuh so gwan buy into the illusion.” He said

Athletes reflect on super congested 2022 international season

Will it be possible to double or not?

That is the question that has seen both coaches and athletes going into spin with the World Athletics Championships and Commonwealth Games falling in the same period in 2022.

This state of affairs could now force Athletics Kenya to name separate teams in most events for the two world competitions.

On Wednesday, World Athletics announced that the World Championships that had been postponed from this year due to the novel coronavirus pandemic will now be staged from July 15 to 24 in Oregon, United States.

The 22nd Commonwealth Games will take place from July 27 to August 7 in Birmingham, England.

World Athletics postponed the World Championships that were to originally take place in July next year in Oregon after the International Olympic Committee rescheduled the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games from July 24-August 9 to July 23-August 8, 2021.

Renowned athletics coach Bernard Ouma and elite athletes, World and Commonwealth 5,000m champion Hellen Obiri, 2015 World javelin champion Julius Yego and 2016 Rio Olympic 1,500m champion Faith Chepng’etich expressed different opinion after the changes.

Ouma said it will be difficult for athletes especially in middle and long distances races to double especially with fatigue creeping while Yego, the 2014 Commonwealth javelin champion, noted that top elite athlete are likely to choose the World Championships over the Commonwealth Games.

Chepng’etich, who won the World 1,500m title in 2017 London before settling for silver in 2019 Doha, said that it will difficult for someone to double with health and form key factors.

Obiri, the 2016 Rio Olympics 5,000m silver medallist, who retained her World title in Doha last year also said it would be difficult for someone to double considering there was also the Diamond League and World Continental Tour events.

“Commonwealth Games will take two weeks hence it will take an excellent athlete to double. Actually, doubling will not be the best option since. It could be a costly gamble,” said Ouma.

UK-based Sesay ‘100 per cent ready’ for Kenya call-up

Crawley Town’s English defender David Sesay has seemingly had a change of heart on playing for Kenya.

While responding to questions from his fans on the English club’s official Twitter account on Wednesday, the League Two defender said that he is now ready to answer a call up from Kenya’s Harambee Stars coach Francis Kimanzi.

“I will hundred per cent accept the call up from Kenya,” he confirmed.

The 21-year-old defender was called up for international duty by then Stars coach Sebastien Migne in the run up to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt last year, but declined the invite to concentrate on his club career.

Sesay explained he had to make a difficult decision in turning down the opportunity to compete at the Africa Nations Cup in Cairo, where Kenya lost to eventual finalists Senegal and Algeria, and beat rivals Tanzania in Group “C”, as he was focused in helping his side battle relegation at the time.

“That (Kenya) is where my mum comes from. It is my heritage. Last time I had just broken into the first team here and was playing games in a row,” said Sesay.

“We were not in the best position in the league. There were some few media outlets in Kenya that said I declined the call up, that wasn’t the case.
I think those that needed to understand my decision did understand.”

Should Kimanzi hand the West Bromwich Albion-target a chance in his team, he will have to compete for a starting position at left-back with Sweden based defender Eric “Marcelo” Ouma, and veteran Aboud Omar who is unattached.

Stars face a congested fixture period when the coronavirus pandemic is curbed, with matches against Comoros, Egypt and Togo in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The team is also pooled alongside Uganda, Rwanda and Mali in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

League Two is England’s fourth tier football league.
