Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Matthew Booth has said that victory for Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane in the Caf Champions League final in Egypt on Friday night would be momentous for him and the country.
Ex-Downs coach Mosimane and Al Ahly take on their bitter rivals Zamalek at Cairo International Stadium in this one-legged final where the two Egyptian giants will be meeting at this stage of the competition for the first time.
Booth‚ who was part of the Sundowns team that lost to Al Ahly in the Champions League final in 2001‚ said South Africans will be immensely proud if Mosimane gets his second Champions League trophy.
Anyone found at funeral overnight vigils, popularly known as disco matanga, in Bungoma County could soon be arrested and arraigned.
This is because the county assembly has passed a Bill outlawing the night dances that precede burials.
The proposed law was presented on the floor of the assembly by Kimaeti Ward MCA Jack Wambulwa and was first received on October 7.
Mr Wambulwa noted that the county ranks among the top 10 with high numbers of early pregnancies.
“The early pregnancies [have resulted from] the frequent dances organised by mourners,” he said, adding men use the functions to prey on girls.
“The Bill will go a long way in helping to curb the rampant cases of teenage pregnancies, which gravely complicate the lives of the school girls,” said the Ford-Kenya party MCA.
The motion notes that, “Article 53 (1) (d) of the Constitution says every child has a right to be protected from abuse, neglect, harmful cultural practices, all forms of violence, inhumane treatment and hazardous or exploitative labour.”
