Mane lone strike ends Cranes’ AFCON dream

first_img Tags: AFCON 2019Allan katereggaDenis OnyangoEmmanuel OkwiSadio ManeSenegaltopUganda Cranes The two team captains line up alongside the referees before kick off on Friday.AFCON 2019Senegal 1-0 UgandaCairo International Stadium, CairoFriday, 05-07-2019Sadio Mane once again starred for Senegal as they defeated Uganda 1-0 in the Africa Cup of Nations round of 16.The Liverpool forward scored the only goal of the game inside the opening quarter of the hour before missing a second half penalty.As anticipated by Senegal’s coach Aliou Cisse, the game started in a physical African approach with challenges flying in and around.With in the first 10 minutes of the game, three players were booked.Uganda’s captain and custodian Denis Onyango was the first to be booked after he rushed off his line and took down Ismaila Sarr, outside his area.As Uganda was struggling to get into the game, Emmanuel Okwi was also booked for an elbow on Senegal captain Chieke Kouyate.Badou Niang was then shown yellow for a reckless foul on Farouk Miya as tempers flared.With the game starting to slow down, Sengal took the lead. Off a Godfrey Walusimbi short blind-pass, Sarr found M’baye Niang who inturn threaded a through ball in behind the Cranes defence, picking out Sadio Mane to slot in past the helpless Onyango.Moments after conceding, Uganda were dealt a huge blow as Hassan Wasswa limped off with injury and was replaced by Timothy Awanyi.The Cranes first chance of the game fell to Emmanuel Okwi on 21 minutes but after he was teed up by the lively Abdu Lumala, the Simba SC forward shot directly at Alfred Gomis in the Ghana goal and the custodian pushed the ball away from danger.Uganda have looked dangerous at set plays all campaign and towards the half hour mark, Okwi headed a Miya corner just wide.The game continued to be physical and Khalid Aucho was the next to be booked after he went in hard on Sarr.As Uganda tried to get an equalizer before the break, they were left exposed at the back and on 35 minutes, Niang raced onto a long ball before rounding Onyango but the custodian recovered to concede a fruitless corner.At halftime, Senegal was struggling to control the game as Uganda tried to make things happen in the final third.Unlike in the first game against DR Congo, Uganda was struggling to capitalize on set plays and with 5 minutes played in the second half, Miya blasted over a free kick from a promising position.On 56 minutes, Allan Kyambadde replaced the ineffective Patrick Kaddu as Uganda looked for inspiration in the final third.Moments later Uganda conceded a penalty. Awanyi let a routine Walusimbi ball by-pass him and Mane pounced before the Liverpool forward was taken down inside the area by Onyango.Onyango (Right) brings down Sadio Mane (10) to conced a penalty.After Mane picked himself up, his resultant kick was saved by Onyango who could have easily been shown a second yellow card for the initial foul.Despite Uganda not causing serious threat, Senegal were not looking assured. Koulibaliy became the fourth player to be booked after the Napoli center back slide in through on Okwi.With 14 minutes ro play, Uganda brought on Allan Kateregga for his AFCON debut, replacing Aucho.Moments after coming on, the Maritzburg midfielder forced a save from Gomis, sending a stinging free-kick goal wards from 27 yards.In the end, it was not a classy and dominant performance but Senegal held on to reach the last 8 of the competition where they will face Benin.For Uganda, they head home with their heads held high after making it to the knockout stages of the competition for the first time in over 41 years.The other game played on Saturday.-Morocco 1-1 Benin (Benin win 4-1 on penalties)Comments last_img read more

Desalination: Cape Town’s solution to water shortages

first_imgWith drought an ever present threat, the City of Cape Town has approved plans to build a plant to turn salty sea water into potable water.The City of Cape Town is building its first desalination plant in the V&A Waterfront to deal with the ongoing drought. (Image: Construction Review)Sulaiman PhilipVisitors to Cape Town this festive season will arrive as the Mother City struggles through the worst drought in living memory. At present dams supplying the city stand at 35% capacity, but without any rains the levels will be closer to 25% by December.Minister of local government‚ environmental affairs and development planning in the Western Cape, Anton Bredell, says the province has been managing drought conditions in some parts of the region since 2010. “Three years of below-average rainfall have exacerbated the situation and despite proactive measures like the implementation of water restrictions and programmes to clear the Berg River of alien vegetation‚ the reality is we are faced with a dire situation.”Inspired by the Target 140 Campaign implemented in South East Queensland, Australia, Cape Town embarked on reducing  water usage. So far residents’ water usage has dropped below 100 litres per person per day, making the City’s Water Conservation and Water Demand Management Programme one of the most successful water conservation projects globally – a fact recognised at the 2015 C40 Cities Awards in Paris.Mayor Patricia de Lille thanked Capetonians and commended them “for rising to the occasion to save more water in our City because we are determined that we will not allow a well-run City to run out of water”.The mayor told the media the City will run out of water by March next year, at current usage levels. Despite water restrictions and the water savings achieved, Cape Town still needs 450 megalitres of water a day.With no end to the drought in sight, the City has approved plans to build a desalination plant to turn salty sea water into potable water.Construction will begin in December at the V&A Waterfront, the first approved site. By February the plant will feed two million litres of water into municipal networks.The harbour site will allow the City to draw water from the harbour and pump the salt brine residue into the ocean. As David Green, V&A Waterfront chief executive officer, explained: “At peak we have about 7m tidal waves, which means that there is no issue in terms of marine life, the brine is cleared immediately.”The V&A plant is the first of a possible eight the City wants to build. Down from an original 17, the other sites include Dido Valley‚ Granger Bay, Harmony Park, Hout Bay‚ Monwabisi, Strand and Strandfontein.The plants will have a working life of two years and, it is hoped, will supply the City with up to 15 million litres of usable water a day.                     Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
