“West Point Erosion Is Our Own Doing”

first_img“What is happening in West Point for the past few days with respect to the recurrence of flood and erosion is our own doing, because people refused to adhere to advice given them months ago,” District #7 Representative Solomon Claudius George told the Daily Observer yesterday.Representative George disclosed that about nine months after a very serious flood, which resulted in erosion of land in both West Point and New Kru Town, a tripartite meeting was held at the Ministry of Internal Affairs between officials from the Ministry, the National Legislature and West Point Commissioner Sampson J. Nyan. According to Rep. George, during the discussions, the Commissioner’s office was mandated to ensure that people do not rebuild on areas that were affected, and it was expected to be so.“But if you give permit to people to go and build again in a no-go-zone, then people will come to government again for help when flood destroys their homes; but government told you before not to go there. What I am saying is that somebody in government is giving a pass and, because of little money, put government in trouble. Government needs to investigate Commissioner Nyan to find out exactly what is happening, to ascertain whether the current areas now sucked into the ocean were the no-go areas.”Rep. George maintained that the government does not presently have the money to carry out the exercise of relocation of people from West Point. He disclosed that suggestions were made to the government some time ago, that if the need arises for the relocation of West Pointers, it must be done with respect. “And that is, we must not be sleeping at night and you come over there to wake us up with guns to kick us out. The government needs to build a low cost housing estate for the people where accounts would be opened for payment of the rent. Right now government has financial constraint; we are financially aching. We say a big sorry for the incident, but we are saying people must stop being stubborn. Learn to go by the rules and when government warns you against something, do not violate.”Meanwhile, our reporter who toured the community Sunday night discovered that many houses were swept away by the sea and subsequent erosion, with the sea only inches away from the only driveable road in that township; while houses including a church building and a football field located on the Kru Beach have been washed away.Sheriff Njai, a Gambian national and head of a household of over 20 people, said he and his family spent a sleepless night on the street, while unaffected neighbours aided some of them. “We are going to Johnsonville where my uncle is building a school and we will be there until it is complete,” said Mohammed Suabu Swaray, Njai’s nephew.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tottenham to move for Suarez?

first_img Mario Suarez in action for Atletico Madrid Tottenham have joined Inter Milan in the race to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Mario Suarez this summer.Mauricio Pochettino is keen on the Spanish international but will face a fight with the Italian giants to bring him to the Premier League.Suarez was courted by the Nerazzurri in January but the Madrid youth academy graduate decided to prolong his stay with Diego Simone’s men.However, it has now been revealed by Sky Italia that a Spurs bid in the region of £6m could prise the defensive midfielder away from the Vicente Calderon.The 28-year-old’s contract is up in 2017 and the north London side are set to enter talks with him this week in a bid to thrash out a deal before the club’s pre-season fixture schedule gets underway.Suarez is said to favour a move to England and is focused on securing regular first-team football after finding himself in and out of Simone’s side last season.The arrival of Inter’s new signing, Geoffrey Kondogbia, to the San Siro is also likely to put Suarez off of moving to Italy, given both players operate in deep-lying midfield roles. 1last_img read more

Third time unlucky for frail 93 year old robbery victim

first_imgA 93-year old pensioner is recovering after raiders broke into her home and ransacked it – for the THIRD time.Frail Margaret Rabbett was in the bathroom of her Co Donegal home yesterday morning (Sun) at 10am.The raiders ransacked Margaret’s home and made away with her pension money. Margaret was unhurt but left shaken after she heard the pair going through her home.The pair, aged between 18 and 25, wrecked Margaret’s home as they rifled it for cash and left her religious statues strewn around her house at Magherabeg, Inch on the Inishowen Peninsula.Margaret’s niece Ann told Donegal Daily that this is the latest break-in to her aunt’s house.She said “This is the third time that Margaret has been burgled and she is very upset because she just keeps thinking on what might have happened if she disturbed them. “Margaret was in the toilet and it was only when she made noise as she came out of the toilet that these boys ran out of the house.“They made no mess when they were breaking into the house. It was perfect and they could get a job as window fitters they were that good.“They left a mess behind them though and knew exactly what they were looking for. They got away with a small amount of cash,” said Ann.Margaret, who lives alone and never married, has been the victim of raiders twice before.Ann said she has great neighbours and that the burglars must have thought she was at mass on a Sunday morning when they broke in. “These are career criminals but it is time we put an end to their careers. This is happening all across rural Ireland and these boys need to be put in bot camp and made to work.“Prison is no good for them because they have televisions, three meals a day and don’t have to work. I’d like to go in there for a couple of weeks myself to get a rest from work,” said Ann.Garda forensic experts have carried out a full sweep of Margaret’s home in an effort to get clues to the identity of the raiders.However, the pair wore gloves and also arrived with a toolbox to gain entry through a back window of Margaret’s home. However, it is understood that there have been sightings of the gang.The two are described as being around 6ft tall and were wearing checked shirts and had dark hair.One of the raiders was also wearing tan coloured tracksuit bottoms.Gardai are trying to identify if a white van seen parked nearby at Inch Wildlife Reserve is connected to the heartless raid.Gardai are looking through CCTV footage while they are also appealing for anybody with dashcam footage in the area to come forward.Third time unlucky for frail 93 year old robbery victim was last modified: August 13th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:burglarydonegalInchInishowenMargaret Rabbettlast_img read more
