Substitute Julius Poloto grabbed the 8th with less than 10 minutes to play.A goal in each half from Christopher Kirya and Bronson Nsubuga acted as consolation for the visitors.After a dominant start by KCCA, Sserwadda put the hosts ahead inside 12 minutes with a header off Herbert Achai’s cross.On 20 minutes, Mutyaba scored the first of his three on the day, side footing from close range past Amuka goalkeeper, Shadrack Ssebulime.Two minutes past the half hour mark, Mutyaba made it 3-0 to the hosts with another close range strike with Okello grabbing the assist.Amuka Bright Stars pulled a goal back in the 41st minute through Christopher Kirya, against the run of play.Moments later, Mutyaba controlled a long ball by Bernard Muwanga and poked it calmly past Ssebulime as the former Vipers and Express forward completes his ha trick and in process put KCCA 5-1 up.By the time Alex Muhabi blew for halftime, Amuka looked disjointed and their body language as they went back into halftime was a sign of what was to come.Two minutes after restart, Sserwadda raced onto a loose back pass to round Ssebulime and finish into an empty net for KCCA’s fourth goal.On 50 minutes, Okello who had looked lively all day got his name onto the score-sheet for KCCA’s 6th on the day thanks to a curling shot from outside the area.On the hour mark, Okello who was handed the captain’s armband on the day got his second beating the advancing goalkeeper in a one against one incident and poking into an empty net after being set-free by Sserwadda.KCCA suffered an injury upset when Herbert Achai was stretchered off with a leg injury and was replaced by Poloto with 20 minutes of the clock. 10 minutes later, the winger who has been out of action for over a month joined in on the party with the 8th for KCCA.Poloto scores KCCA’s 8th on the dayAmuka Bright Stars scored their second and the game’s last through Bronson Nsubuga with seven minutes to the climax.KCCA has thus scored the most goals in this year’s knock out cup competition surpassing the 5 managed by Police FC on Sunday.The win means that Mike Mutebi’s side qualify for the round of 32 while Amuka are eliminated.Meanwhile, in the other game scheduled for Wrdnesday at the St Mary’s Stadium, visiting-Rushekere Growers were a no-show hence their game against Vipers postponed.The FUFA Competitions department will pronounce themselves on the matches not honoured in the nearby future.Round of 64 Results:Police FC 5-0 Boma FCBright Stars FC 4-0 Kazo Excel FCSC Villa 4-1 Lugazi MunicipalProline 3-1 Light S.SEast Land FC 1-3 Nyamityobora FCAdmin FC 3-1 Doves All Starts FCKyetume FC 3-1 UPDF FCSt Stephen FC 3-1 Budondo FCSoroti FC 1-3 Synergy FCNebbi Central FC 3-2 CATDA FCMbarara FC 0-2 Kirinya-Jinja SS FCBusia Young FC 0-2 Onduparaka FCTooro United 2-0 Entebbe FCBUL FC 2-1 Kataka FCFree Stars FC 2-1 Edgars Youth Academy FCBukedea Town Council FC 1-0 Dove FCKigezi FC 0-1 Kiboga YoungNdejje University FC 0-1 Kansai Plascon FCBumate FC 1 (5) – 1 (4) Ntinda FCU touch 1(4) – 1 (3) Mvara Boys FCMbarara City 0 (4) – 0 (3) MaroonsKiira United 1 (4) – 1 (5) St Mary’s NabweruMatches not physically played:*Wakiso Giants Vs Vision FC (*Vision FC failed to travel to Jinja)*Paidha Black Angels FC Vs Express FC (Not played because Paidha Black Angels arrived late at the venue and failed too, to provide security)*Calvary FC Vs Kabale Sharp FC (Not played because Kabale Sharp failed to travel to Northern Uganda)*Akadot FC Vs Kitara FC (Not played because Akadot reached venue late and failed to provide security as well)*URA FC Vs Jinja Municipal Council Hippos FC (Not played because Jinja Municipal Council Hippos failed to travel to Namboole Stadium)*Water Vs Saviour (Saviour failed to travel to Mutesa II Wankulukuku Stadium)*Vipers Vs Rushekere Growers (Rushskere Growers failed to travel to St Mary’s Kitende)Comments Tags: Amuka Bright StarsKCCA FCtopUganda Cuplast_img read more

Calls made on Govt for ‘definitive date’ on Mica redress scheme

first_imgThe Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government has been called on to give a definitive date as to when the MICA Redress Scheme will commence for homeowners affected by defective mica blocks. Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal, Charlie McConalogue made the appeal on Wednesday.In June, junior housing minister Damien English has said that the Mica redress scheme will be ready for repair works to begin on homes in autumn 2019. The plans follow the allocation of €20million from the government for grants to cover remediation works to dwellings that have been damaged due to defective concrete blocks.It is estimated that as many as 4,800 dwellings in Donegal and 345 in Mayo are affected by the Mica-defective blocks. “It is disgraceful that homeowners, many of whom have homes crumbling around them, still have no certainty regarding a start date from the government for the Mica redress scheme,” McConalogue said.“In the last budget, €20m was set aside for the scheme. “A start date was expected to be brought to government by Minister Murphy before Christmas 2018,” he added.“It is massively disrespectful to the plight facing the thousands of people in Donegal affected by Mica, that eight months later we are no clearer on the details of the scheme.“The Minister must provide clarity to the families and give a definitive date so they can begin the remediation process as soon as possible,” concluded Deputy McConalogue.Calls made on Govt for ‘definitive date’ on Mica redress scheme was last modified: July 3rd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:MICAlast_img read more

Young South Africans plan to stay at home

It was conducted over four weeks, from 17 November to 12 December 2014, and interviews were done with 2 524 people between the ages of 15 and 55. The interviews were conducted nationally, in the individuals’ homes.It found that the South African population is young, with most people between the ages of 15 and 34. This was in line with the Census results, which found that 66% of the country’s population was under the age of 34.According to the Domestic Perceptions Research, South Africa’s youth are committed, proud, hopeful and aspirational about the country.Leigh-Gail Petersen, a researcher at Brand South Africa, said these results indicated that the youth were optimistic about their future in the country. “That future can only be realised through constructive engagement,” she added.The majority of people between the ages of 15 and 55 said they would continue to live and work in South Africa regardless of the social, economic and political situation in the country.A total of 85% of those 55 years and older said they would continue to live in South Africa no matter what. Some 65% of respondents aged between 15 and 24 years agreed with that sentiment; this rose to 74% in the age group 25 to 44 years old and 75% in the age group 45 to 54 years old.Of those aged 15 to 17, only 18% planned to live in another country; 9% of those aged 18 to 24 shared that sentiment, and just 6% of the 25- to 44-year-olds agreed.The crucial socio-economic challenges identified in South Africa were crime and unemployment.last_img read more
