“The KRU Board received the forensic audit by PKF Consulting and pursuant to the Board Minutes of 20th October, 2014, the Board has suspended vice-chairman Phillip Jalang’o with immediate effect.“The suspension, pending a resolution of the Special General Meeting (of) the KRU, is based on results of the PKF forensic audit which has been ongoing since January this year. The report was tabled at the board meeting of 29th April.“The KRU also announces the resignation of Eddie Omondi as Hon Secretary to the KRU with immediate effect,” a statement from the Union signed by chairman, Richard Omwela read.Speaking to Capital Sport, Jalang’o termed his suspension unprocedural terming it a manifestation of power play at the helm of the sport.“The suspension letter does not explain due course for the action and it is just the politics going on at KRU.“They did not cite which part of the constitution the suspension is based on and it does not even allow fellow board members to take such action against another,” Jalang’o explained.He produced a copy of the court judgment delivered by High Court Judge, Justice Isaac Lenaola that overturned his suspension by immediate former chairman, Mwangi Muthee in 2013 that read in part, “The decision to suspend him (Jalang’o) was in contravention of Articles 10.8 and 10.2.2 of the Union’s Constitution.“Was in breach of Article 27 of the Constitution (of Kenya 2010) which guarantee the equality and freedom from discrimination; was in breach of Article 35 (2) of the Constitution which provides for the right of correction or deletion of misleading or untrue of misleading information that affects the person.”Lenaola further ruled KRU board members had no right to suspend one of their own, they could only recommend sanctions that could only be ratified by a Special General Meeting in the case of the Union.“The suspension of the Petitioner in his capacity of board member of the Kenya Rugby Union was illegal and void ab initional and in breach of Article 47 of the Constitution; and“A declaration that the action of the respondents (Muthee and former secretary Jack Okoth) in this cause violated the Petitioner’s constitutional rights under Articles 35 (1) (b) and (2), 47 and 50 (1) of the Constitution of the Republic of Kenya,” the Judge wrote in his ruling dated July 4, 2014.Jalang’o was subsequently re-elected as vice-chair in the election of April 2014 but in light of the latest development, he disclosed to Capital Sport he would wait for his hearing during the SGM set for June 4 as opposed to challenging his latest suspension in court.“After the last judgement, the same thing has happened again and when matters are taken politically, the best thing is dealing with them politically since again, no cause has been shown,” he added.He accused his detractors as officials bent on propagating the image of the sport as an elitist affair opposed to his efforts of taking it in the grassroots.-Embezzling funds-Last year’s Safaricom 7s were shrouded in controversy when some directors at the Union were accused of embezzling funds and awarding supply contracts to their cronies.Safaricom were the first to take decisive action on the first day of this month when they severed all contracts with KRU to sponsor the annual premier sevens international invitational event as well as the domestic sevens series with Bamburi widely said to be following suit for the 15s franchise event.“Over the years, we have closely monitored the events of the Union and heightened our growing concerns with the lack of transparency and accountability of certain members of the Board whose actions have brought the game to disrepute; a situation which jeopardises the Safaricom brand and which makes our continued sponsorship impossible,” a statement by Safaricom CEO, Bob Collymore serving a 30-day notice that lapses Thursday to ditch all KRU events read in part.Jalang’o and Omondi were not up for election in March when Omwela reclaimed the chair after losing it to Muthee four years ago.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000NAIROBI, April 30- The Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) board has cracked the whip on two perceived errant directors with the the suspension of vice-chairman, Phillip Jalang’o and resignation of Secretary Eddie Omondi with immediate effect on Thursday.The two officials were adversely cited in an audit into last year’s Safaricom Sevens and Bamburi Rugby Super Series scandals where they were implicated in financial impropriety in awarding service contracts and procurement.
talkSPORT’s man in Manchester, Dom McGuinness, says Yaya Toure is no longer irreplaceable for Man City, something that could explain his recent pledge to stay at the club after a summer of rocking the boat.Toure’s agent sparked speculation over his future just days after City lifted the Premier League title in May, telling talkSPORT the powerhouse midfeidler was ‘very upset’ with the club after they failed to celebrate his birthday.The 41-year-old was strongly linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and – more recently – to Manchester rivals United, but the Ivorian instead revealed he would honour his contract at the Etihad Stadium.And, asked about Toure’s future, McGuinness told the Sunday Scoreboard: “He’s probably going to be stuck where he is whether he likes it or not.“Yaya’s in a situation now at 31 where maybe those big moves that were mooted a while ago aren’t going to happen, so then what can he do? That’s probably why there has been the big turnaround”.The power is now firmly in the Manchester club’s hands, according to McGuinness, with Toure not irreplaceable given City’s plans to further strengthen this summer as well as their financial muscle.“He is a key player and a unique player, with the way he can pop up and score so many goals. He’s a very very special player, but of course, there isn’t anyone that can’t be replaced in some shape or form.“He’s not so unique as to keep peddling stories with his agent suggesting moves, suggesting he’s not happy and expect that the club will always stand by him.“With Manchester City’s power financially and the fact that they have a fantastic squad already that will be added too, there comes a point, so he’s replaceable.”

22 May 2013 The South African government and business are set to work together to improve service delivery, with a major announcement of capacity-building partnerships between business and municipalities expected to be made in August. This was announced by Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Richard Baloyi during his department’s budget vote in Parliament in Cape Town on Tuesday. Baloyi said that business formations were polishing their offers for massive engagements to enhance the capacity of municipalities to deliver better services. A major launch of partnerships between municipalities and business organisations is due to take place in August. Some of these partnerships will address basic service delivery through turn-key initiatives to deliver water, sanitation and electricity. Business Unity South Africa has also offered to partner with municipalities. The organisation will assist in local economic development, with private companies being mobilised to support local government; energy and climate change; capacity-building to improve service delivery; public and private partnerships; and the promotion of good governance. Already, Absa Bank has committed itself to focus on developing effective financial skills for local government managers, on promoting effective and transparent procurements, and on leadership building in affordable housing. Baloyi said his department, in partnership with the Department of Higher Education, would soon launch a programme to improve the skills of councilors and traditional leaders. Details of this project will also be made known in August. On the fight against corruption, Baloyi said his department was finalising an agreement between the Local Government Inspectorate and the Special Investigations Unit. The department had also recommitted itself to its Local Government Turnaround Strategy Budget as a roadmap for effective support to the local sphere. Reflecting on the results of this strategy, Baloyi said a number of provinces were pushing hard towards achieving a clean audit by 2014. Source: SAnews.gov.za

While the average search query is still around two words long, queries that are longer than four words have become increasingly popular over the last twelve months.Hitwise’s latest data also confirms that Google’s market share in the search business is continuing to grow at a steady clip (9% year-over-year). Year-over-year, all of Google’s larger competitors lost ground, though at least between December and January, both Yahoo and Ask.com saw a very minor increase in their market share. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Longer Search QueriesYear-over-year, using one and two-word search engine queries became slightly less popular, while the number of three-word queries remained flat. Instead, a growing number of users are now opting to use longer queries. Overall, longer search queries have increased ten percent over the last year.This is an interesting trend, and it could be interpreted in a variety of way. This could mean that a growing number of users is finding less value in the search results they get from relatively unspecific, short queries. It could also indicate that users are becoming more sophisticated in how they structure their queries when they are looking for very specific answers.
