Azan, who is a national coach and president of the Jamaica Skeet Club, says his future plans also include working to expand the sport internationally. “I am also going to see how I can help to expand the sport under sports tourism. That is my goal,” Azan said. He also credited a supportive management team and other stakeholders for their work in growing the sport. ” I selected the team four years ago because I wanted people that I could work with, people who would give us support, and we’ve worked extremely well as a group, and everybody played a big part,” Azan added. He was speaking to the media at last Sunday’s NCB Capital Markets Sporting Clay, at the Knolford Polo Ranch in St Catherine. It attracted a record participation of 170 shooters in terms of the number of girls, beginners and other categories of shooters. It is said to be Azan’s last event as Jamaica Skeet Club president. While signalling a choice to demit office soon, Khaleel Azan, Jamaica Skeet Club president, wants to continue working with upcoming shooters, while helping to market Jamaica as a sporting clays sports tourism destination. Azan is in what he calls a final phase of his four-year term as the association president. He is credited by some for aiding the growth of clay shooting, attracting much corporate sponsorship of local tournaments and strengthening the junior programme. “I am going to give up the presidency because after four years, you get tired and you get burnt out, but I am going to focu s on my juniors, number one,” Azan said.

first_imgOne person was serious injured and the windshield of a vehicle was badly damaged last Friday during the execution of court order.One of the parties had gone to take possession of a building situated on Ashmun Street in Monrovia due to a court order.The structure is believed to be a portion of the Intestate Estate of the Late John W. Taylor that is being managed by one William A. Cisco, who is serving as its administrator.Magistrate Nelson Chineh, then Stipendiary Magistrate of the Monrovia City Court in 2009, heard the matter of the fake administrator title between William Cisco and one Koko Mayors, known as “Koko Cisco,’ where the magistrate established that the original administrator was William Cisco.His decision came after Koko was arrested and charged with theft of property and forgery by the Liberia National Police (LNP) in February 2010.It was however based on the 2009 decision of the court that the Cisco family last Friday decided to take possession of the building on Ashmun Street when the scuffle broke out.Speaking to the Daily Observer yesterday, Charles Cassell, one of the children, alleged that before he was attacked, he took two carpenters to the area to take off the roof of the building based on the court’s 2009 decision.According to Cassell, when they got to the location of the building, he met a group of men believed to have been hired by Koko Mayors, who reportedly prevented them from entering the compound.When he would not comply, Cassell said the other men allegedly jumped on him, started to beat him and broke the windshield of his father’s vehicle. Thereafter, he ran to safety at the Slipway Police Station.He further alleged that Koko’s men ran behind him until they all entered the station.“What shocked me was that the police detained me after Koko went to the station, ignoring my earlier complaint. I don’t know what is happening that if a man takes his complaint to police and without any investigation, the police detained him,” he said.He said it was based on his father’s lawyer’s intervention that he was released from detention.“We are afraid and we don’t know where to go for help, so we are calling on the government to intervene to allow us to get our legitimate properties,” he appealed. Prior to the incident, the Magistrate’s decision for Cassell to reclaim the property was made after the court withdrew the ‘power of attorney’ from Koko Cisco and he was charged by the LNP for theft of property and forgery.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgSouth African traditional healer Sibonakaliso Mbili was sentenced to life imprisonment for influencing four persons to behead Indian-origin woman Desiree Murugan in 2014. Judge Thoba Poyo-Dlwati gave the ruling at the Durban High Court on Oct.4, and found that the four perpetrators — Jimmy Stanley Thelejala, Mlungisi Ndlovu, Mbali Magwala, and Falakhe Khumalo — lured Murugan to a Shallcross sports ground, before carrying out the killing.Murugan was killed by the four after Mbili promised Khumalo 2 million Rand ($153,000) for bringing the head of an Indian or white or colored woman, for use in illegal witchcraft practice. Murugan, a 39-year-old Indian-origin woman who hailed from Chatsworth, Durban, was stabbed 197 times and beheaded on Aug. 17, 2014. Her headless body was found at the Shallcross sports field.While Thelejala and Ndlovu were given 15-year jail terms, Magwala was sentenced to 12 years in prison. All the three were minor high school students at the time of committing the crime. Khumalo had pleaded guilty earlier and is serving life sentence. It was found that Thelejala and Ndlovu helped Khumalo kill and behead Murugan. Magwala did not actively participate in the act, but assisted the three by selecting her as a victim and washing her head in a bucket after the murder.“Mbili used his influence as a sangoma by promising them [teenagers] muthi that would not make them visible to police,” Judge Poyo-Dlwati said, News 24 reported. “I agree with the State that there are no substantial and compelling circumstances that will make the court deviate from the prescribed maximum sentence.” The judge pointed out that she had kept into view the fact that Mbili pleaded innocence even though there was strong evidence against him. Mbili was accused of cutting Murugan’s head into several pieces, placing them in tins and burying them in his yard.Poyo-Dlwati pointed out that the ruling should serve as a warning “that no matter your beliefs, don’t trample other humans’ right to life”.The Traditional Healers Association of South Africa had earlier condemned the practice of using human body parts as traditional medicines, saying it was done by rogue elements, mainly in rural areas, and maligned genuine traditional healers.
