Bishop Allan Klayee, the chairman of the board of directors of church based football club, Jubilee FC, has announced the appointment of businessman George Kailando, as its new president.Bishop Klayee said Mr. Kailondo’s appointment is intended to commercialize Jubilee FC.

He is the co-sponsor of the ongoing President’s Cup, which cost about US$33,000.Bishop Klayee is the founder and chief executive officer of Jubilee FC, formerly Paynesville Young Controller (PYC).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
ECHO SUMMIT, Calif. – Winter storms last month boosted snow levels in the Sierra Nevada, although more is needed to make up for this year’s dry start, the Department of Water Resources said Friday in its monthly snow survey. In the northern Sierra, at 6,800 feet above sea level, researchers measured the snow at 63.8 inches deep, about 78 percent of what is expected this time of year. The average snowpack along the 400-mile-long mountain range was 64 percent of normal. Although the readings were still low, the snow’s water content was significantly higher than a month ago. A storm dumped up to 9 feet of snow on upper elevations of the Sierra over the past week, about 6 feet in back-to-back storms last weekend. “It’s a nice boost. Things were looking pretty grim in February,” said Maurice Roos, the department’s chief hydrologist. The snow’s water content was deeper in the northern Sierra – 71 percent of normal – and slightly lower in the central and southern Sierra – 66 percent and 55 percent, respectively. Researchers from the department conduct five monthly snow surveys from January to May, measuring the snow at 382 stations so they can predict water supply for the year. Runoff from the Sierra provides more than one-third of the state’s drinking and irrigation water. Hydroelectric plants also rely on snowmelt to produce about one-quarter of the state’s power. Roos said changes in the state’s weather in the next few months could further improve snow and water levels. There is usually an additional 10 percent to 15 percent of snowfall in March, he said. The current readings “put us about where we were at this time last year,” department snow surveys chief Frank Gehrke said in a statement. Despite a dry January, officials said California reservoirs still have plenty of water, thanks to wet winters in the three previous years.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SANTA CLARA — Here is how the 49ers (10-1) graded in Sunday night’s 37-8 rout of the Green Bay Packers (8-3):PASS OFFENSE: AJimmy Garoppolo’s 145.8 passer rating is a career best, and it reflects just how well he understands Kyle Shanahan’s offense after two years. The return of George Kittle (six catches, six targets, 129 yards) brought predictable success, although a 61-yard touchdown reception was a pleasant surprise that’s been in the works at practice all season. Deebo Samuel’s 42-yard …
The Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation hosted the Oliver Tambo Centenary Memorial Lecture under the appropriate theme “On the Shoulders of a Giant” at the University of the Witwatersrand On 27 October 2017.Former President Thabo Mbeki delivered the keynote address to a full-house made up of the Tambo family and friends, liberation struggle stalwarts, government and business leaders, students, and members of the media, among others. (Image: Supplied)Phindi Maduna“For the revolutionary movement, anniversaries cannot only celebrate the past. We must recall and acclaim our history, but more importantly, we must use the past to arm ourselves for the future; to learn lessons and to strengthen our resolve and commitment”Oliver Reginald Tambo spoke these words at the meeting to observe the 60th anniversary of the South African Communist Party in London on 30 July 1981. On 27 October 2017, when the Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation hosted the Oliver Tambo Centenary Memorial Lecture under the appropriate theme “On the Shoulders of a Giant” at the University of the Witwatersrand, the intention was to reflect on the past, draw lessons from it and arm ourselves for the future of South Africa.Tambo‚ the longest-serving African National Congress President who died in 1993‚ would have been 100 years old on 27 October 2017. Brand South Africa was honoured to partner with the Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation to celebrate the life of Tambo and his great contribution to the South African liberation struggle.In closing, Mbeki said, “History will answer the question unequivocally whether we had the courage to live up to the extraordinary legacy which Oliver Tambo left behind!”Former President Thabo Mbeki delivered the keynote address to a full-house made up of the Tambo family and friends, liberation struggle stalwarts, government and business leaders, students, and members of the media, among others.He opened by saying “Today, October 27, 2017 our people, joined by the people of the rest of Africa and the world, stand up and say in unison – happy birthday our dear and respected Oliver Tambo, our beloved OR”. Tambo was a committed Pan-Africanist and this according to Mbeki, “helped further to entrench this outlook throughout the ranks of the ANC and contributed in no small measure to the development of the attitude among millions throughout our Continent that the struggle to defeat the apartheid system was as much ours as it was theirs.” Tambo is certainly respected world over for his human rights activism, internationalism, and futurism. There is so much that leaders young and old, across South Africa, Africa and the world can learn from the way that Tambo led the liberation struggle and united the international community against the apartheid government.The audience listened attentively as Mbeki reflected on his relationship with Tambo and shared some of the of the lessons that can be taken from Tambo’s leadership style in order to move South Africa forward. He candidly emphasised the importance of taking lessons from those who came before us in order to continue to make progress in South Africa.Tambo‚ the longest-serving African National Congress President who died in 1993‚ would have been 100 years old on 27 October 2017.Mbeki said that he believed that the best way to honour Tambo as we mark the Centenary of his birth would be to live up to the example he has set by being loyal to the truth; encouraging a spirit of unity to achieve the goal of a better life for all; helping to ensure the full functioning of our country as a constitutional democracy; and, “reasserting in practical ways the principle and practice that we share a common destiny with our fellow Africans, including those in the African Diaspora.”In closing, Mbeki said “History will answer the question unequivocally whether we had the courage to live up to the extraordinary legacy which Oliver Tambo left behind!”It is while standing on the shoulders of a giant like Tambo, that South Africans and South African leaders can realise a future built on consistent perseverance and resilience; because South Africa’s tumultuous past and the manner in which it was overcome is a lesson that we cannot take for granted in the on-going exercise to build a better South Africa, Africa and world.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Liverpool teenager Brewster showing improvement after Wolves braceby Freddie Taylor4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool U23 boss Neil Critchley says Rhian Brewster is improving after his double against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.The 19-year-old made his first-team debut against MK Dons in the Carabao Cup and boosted his chances of another appearance with a fine display in the 4-3 win over Wolves at Kirkby.Asked if Brewster was taking steps in the right direction, Critchley said: “There were positives to take from the game and Rhian’s goals were among them.”He is looking slightly better every time he plays. That was arguably his best game for us this season, not just his goals but his all-round contribution, the way he led the line particularly without the ball, competing with his back to goal as well.”He was competing very well with longer balls and balls in the air. He put a real shift in for the team which is something he will be able to do as he gets fitter. I was really pleased with his contribution.”

Sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop talks to the media on Feb. 23 for the first time since his surgery on his left shin. Credit: Jacob Myers | Assistant Sports EditorNot much has gone right for the Ohio State men’s basketball team this year, making it all the more difficult for sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop as he goes through rehabilitation after surgery on his left shin.The Buckeyes lost arguably their most dynamic player following a 76-75 loss to Purdue on Jan. 5. Bates-Diop sat out that game and coach Thad Matta informed the media in the postgame press conference that the forward would redshirt and be out for the year. Since that game, Bates-Diop has had surgery and his recovery is ahead of schedule.But the injury could have been devastating.“It was getting close to what could’ve been a compound fracture, which — Kevin Ware, Paul George — that’s what would’ve happened,” Bates-Diop said. “Don’t know when it would’ve happened, but if I would’ve kept playing, it was a possibility. It was already decided I wasn’t playing, but when they said that, there was no chance I was coming back.”The 6-foot-7 forward from Normal, Illinois, had been dealing with the injury since the summer when another player made hard contact with his shin. He came back and still wasn’t 100 percent, so the team mandated that he receive X-rays. “(The coaches) could tell something was wrong,” Bates-Diop said. “I wasn’t playing like myself. I was playing at a high level in the summer, until I did something wrong.” Bates-Diop then suffered a right ankle injury against Providence on Nov. 11. He missed five games with that injury, but it wasn’t until December that his shin began bothering him again. Bates-Diop recalled stopping abruptly versus Youngstown State on Dec. 20 when he felt a pain shoot through his leg. From then on, his injury didn’t progress any and he was shut down for the season.Through the season Bates-Diop said he was near full health. He admitted on Thursday that wasn’t the case.“I told you guys that I was close to being 100 percent. I was not,” he said. “I lied. I was never 100 percent. I was never close.”Bates-Diop said that he had a rod placed in his left leg from just below the kneecap down to just above the ankle. He has two screws in his leg, one in each spot to anchor the rod. He said that the one near his ankle will likely be taken out. He was supposed to be on crutches for two to three weeks but was only on them for one week.As far as conditioning and lifting is concerned, Bates-Diop is working on upper-body strength, so by the time summer rolls around he can jump into skill drills.On top of all that, two weeks ago, Bates-Diop’s brother collapsed during practice and was transported to the hospital, causing the Buckeye to head home. His brother was discharged from the hospital days later and Bates-Diop said his brother returned to school Thursday for the first time.While that was going on, OSU has fallen to 15-13 and 5-10 in the Big Ten before it plays No. 16 Wisconsin on Thursday night. Bates-Diop said one of the most difficult aspects of his injury is knowing he can’t contribute to a team who’s struggling mightily. “It’s been very hard,” he said. “Just dealing with everything I’ve been personally through and then the team. It’s been a rough few months … since New Years.”Bates-Diop was averaging 9.7 points and 5.2 rebounds before the injury. He said that he has taken a new role on the sidelines and has a new perspective outside the game that other players don’t have — something he’s hoping to carry over to next year.“I think mental preparation toward the game. I was playing at a high level. I can get that back,” he said. “But looking from the outside in, now I can change my mentality from the game. All that stuff I can teach these guys, especially the younger guys on what to do and what not to do.”
