first_imgFire on Monday afternoon, January 12, 2015, gutted a three-bed room house in Kakata, Margibi County, burning beyond recognition a nine year old boy identified as Amos Morris.According to reports, the incident, which attracted a huge crowd to the scene, occurred in the Sugar Hill Community in Kakata. The onlookers wailed bitterly, not for the property and other valuables that were lost, but the painful death of the lad whose charred remains lay in the debris.The Liberia News Agency (LINA) correspondent in Kakata, Richard Baysah, quoted an eyewitness and chairman of the Sugar Hill Community, Edward Carter, as saying that passers-by on Monday afternoon noticed thick black smoke coming from the roof of the three bed room house.The smoking roof immediately prompted neighbours and others to quickly try to contain the situation, but little did they know that young Morris was trapped inside the house by the blazing fire and thick smoke.The resecures broke through the door of one of the rooms that was locked, but their efforts proved futile.Mr. Carter further narrated to reporters that while in the process of putting out the blazing flames with water, that rescuers discovered the charred remains of little Amos Morris, who by then had been burned beyond recognition.Mr. Carter expressed his deep regret over the manner in which little Morris met his death adding, “It was very painful and untimely.”The father of the deceased, Larry Morris, explained in tears the circumstances leading to the fire.  He said he left  his son along with his mother early Monday morning  and went to work, but was surprisingly informed via cell phone to his disbelief  that his house had been gutted by fire and his son had burnt to death.The exact cause of the fire and the name of the person who may have locked up the child have not been established, but officers of the National Fire Service Bureau assigned in Kakata, along with  Liberia National Police officers there have launched a probe into the incident.Fire incidents in Margibi County, especially during the dry season, are very common as houses are frequently gutted by fire leaving several persons either wounded or dead.Meanwhile, the Liberia National Fire Service Commander in Kakata is appealing for a fire truck to help with future fire outbreaks in the county.Lt/Col. Johnson Freeman said it was about the same time early last year that a tanker parked on a street in Kakata burst into flames, causing the death of three persons and the burning of several buildings completely to the ground.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_img0Shares0000Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to stars such as Paul Pogba to recover their form to ensure Manchester United qualify for the Champions League © AFP / Josep LAGOMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 19 – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his under-achieving Manchester United players there is no “hiding place” for them and they are playing for their futures at the club.The United manager, whose side exited the Champions League this week in limp fashion against Barcelona, said he is looking to the likes of Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba to rediscover their best form as they battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League. United face three crucial league games with Everton, Manchester City and Chelsea that will have a huge say on whether they finish in the top four.But with big name stars such as Martial and Pogba desperately struggling for form in a run that has seen United lose five of their last seven league and cup games, the United manager has laid out demands to his players.“I’ve learnt a lot about them over the months I’ve been here now and you get to know them,” said Solskjaer.“Most of them have really impressed me in their attitude and, of course, there are some who need to get a reality check of where they’re at.“Every day in training, every game when you’re playing there’s no hiding place and everyone can see what your level’s at we’re working with fantastic staff to create this culture.”– ‘Have to be realistic’ –Solskjaer, who has seen his side’s fortunes slide since he was handed the job on a permanent basis after a sparkling start as interim manager, said tests such as Barcelona are good indicators of whether players are able to play at such a level.“It is performances on the pitch that will determine where they’re at in their careers, short term and long term, every single day,” said Solskjaer.“That’s what we spoke about at Barca as well, when you’re at big stadiums, you’ve got to step up, make good decisions and I’m looking forward to this period.”Martial, in particular, has been a frustration for the United manager, having scored just three goals in 2019 despite signing a lucrative new five-year contract in January.Under Solskjaer’s predecessor Jose Mourinho, the young Frenchman had seemed destined to leave Old Trafford only to show an improvement in attitude and form in the early games of the Norwegian’s reign.“I’ve spoken to individuals and they know, and Anthony is one I’ve spoken to, what we expect from them,” said Solskjaer.“Anthony’s got a massive talent, signed a new contract and he knows we believe in him, so just keep working.“I think anyone that plays for Man United has to deliver, to stay in the squad and stay in the team and Anthony is no different to Rashy (Rashford) or Rom (Lukaku) or Alexis (Sanchez) or the other forwards we have to choose from.”Despite some average business performed by his club in recent transfer windows, Solskjaer is confident they will be more successful in that area this summer.“I’ve been speaking to the club, we know that we have to be realistic and have a job to be done there’s no quick fix,” he said.“It’s not like buy seven players and we’re in the right shape.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgWHAT a difference a year makes – from so-called ‘puke football’ to the Barcelona of the GAA!That’s what the pundits are saying today after Donegal’s superb All-Ireland semi-final win over Cork on Sunday.Double All-Ireland winner Tony Davis stood by his insistence that Donegal played awful defensive gaelic football last year. But he has changed his mind now about this year’s team – and reckons Donegal play GAA the way Barcelona play soccer!For McHugh, think Messi, he says.High praise indeed.Asked about how Donegal could smother attacks and then break out into attack, Davis said: “That’s the whole key to how Donegal play; it’s like watching Barcelona play – they get the ball back and break out.” Dinny Allen, the legendary Cork dual player – he won four all-Irelands at football  – is regarded as one of the greatest gaelic stars of all-time.Asked about how Jim McGuinness and his staff had moulded this Donegal team, Dinny said: “It was wonderful to watch.“I don’t like speaking of other codes but it was like watching a top continental European soccer team, the way they defend, take possession and break out.“They were the better team on the day and played some great football.”From a legend like Allen, it doesn’t get any better. The whole county is buzzing today as Donegal contemplates only our second ever All-Ireland final.Thoughts are already turning to tickets, with fans hoping Mayo can see off Dublin – fearing the Dubs will mop up tickets for the final in four weeks time.Let the scramble begin.Believe!

A club of this stature has to be in the Premier League.“I looked around both Villa Park and the training ground, and me and my family just said, ‘wow’. It’s Premier League everywhere you look. Bolasie’s time at Everton has been blighted by injury “I’m here to make myself smile again and use all my ability to try and help the team. It’s great to be here.”The flying forward has been halted by injuries somewhat during his career with the Toffees.In December of his first season, he suffered a rupture anterior cruciate ligament injury which left him fearing for his career.last_img read more
