first_imgTwo junior staff members of the Ministry of Youth and Sports may be suspended for alleged ‘insubordination’ the Daily Observer, has reliably learnt.Mr. Kelvin Sebwe, Technical Director for sports and J. Bryant McGill, the Chief of Office Staff to Deputy Sports Minister Henry B. Yonton, Jr., may face suspension for publicly refusing to carry out a directive from Assistant Minister Murvee Gray, who served as chairman at the just ended 2016 Intra-Governmental Tourney.For his part, Mr. Bryant may be suspended for “speaking loudly or argumentativelyto the Assistant Minister” which suggested verbal intimidation, a source at the MYs indicated. Both incidents occurred on Friday, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium before and after the football grand finals between LBS/MICAT Falcons and the Ministry of State.“This could be the first time for the duo to be suspended, if it happens,” a source said.Witnesses told the Daily Observer that Mr. Sebwe, who is also the deputy head coach of the national football team and a coach-player of the Ministry’s football team, said he deliberately refused to handover the player’s dressing room key to allow LBS/MICAT Falcons team, led by Minister Eugene Nagbe, to change their clothes.Witnesses indicated that Sebwe refused to give the key, arguing that their “clothes and things” were safe keeping; but would only hand over the key after their game with Justice Ministry, which they bowed 1-2.“After complaining to Deputy Minister Yonton and other staff, Kelvin finally handed over the key unwillingly,” the source said.“The refusal to give the key to allow Min. Nagbe to change is political, and we don’t want to go in details but it started when Min. Nagbe served as the Minister of Youth and Sports,” the source added.For Bryant he came in the fray when he said his wrist watch got missing and he accused the Assistant Minister for being responsible because of “opening the dressing from” where their things were kept.“Though Asst. Min. Gray accepted the responsibility to pay, but Bryant’s words were harsh,” the source said.Witnesses further said Deputy Minister Yonton was too furious against Bryant, because of his utterance and “promised to suspend him.”“We won’t condone insubordination,” the source quoted Min. Yonton.When contacted Asst. Minister Gray affirmed the insubordination against him, but said a complaint has been filed to the Ministry of Youth & Sports. For his part, Deputy Minister Yonton also affirmed being aware of the insubordination, but would not comment further.Sebwe and Bryant also when contacted decided not to comment on the allegation.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

We could not clear all the debt because the Sh3.6m collected from the derby cannot settle over Sh2.4m wage bill,” Kadima told.Logarusic who is yet to find his winning team might retain the squad that did duty against Gor although unused substitutes skipper Martin Imbalambala, and towering defender Joseph Shikokoti might return to solidify the back line and stop the Bankers lethal forwards, Benjamin Chaka, Raymond Murugi and Crispinus Onyango.Leopards who failed to beat the bankers last season have a slim head to head record advantage after winning four and drawing five in their 12 meetings.In Machakos, Sofapaka will seek a back to back win when they entertain tricky Chemelil Sugar at their backyard for the first time this season while ten-time champions Tusker FC will out to end their four match winless run as they host Bandari and Nairobi’s Ruaraka Grounds.Fixtures; Wednesday14:00             Ushuru vs Mathare United – Nyayo Stadium16:00             Thika United vs Nakuru All Stars – Thika Stadium16:00             Tusker vs Bandari   – Ruaraka Ground16:00             SonySugar vs Western Stima – Awendo Green Stadium16:00             City Stars vs Gor Mahia – City Stadium16:00             Sofapaka vs Chemelil Sugar – Machakos Stadium16:15             KCB vs AFC Leopards – Nyayo Stadium16:00             Ulinzi Stars vs Muhoroni Youth – Afraha Stadium0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000NAIROBI, April 14 – Champions Gor Mahia head coach Frank Nuttall is confident his charges will remain unbeaten against struggling City Stars at Nairobi City Stadium when the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) resumes on Wednesday with seven matches on the card.K’Ogalo who dropped their first points of the season after bitter rivals, AFC Leopards frustrated them to a 1-1 draw in Sunday’s Mashemeji Derby, will be looking to stretching their lead at the summit to four points should closest challengers, Western Stima lose at Sony Sugar.last_img read more

Brothers Ryan Maxwell Alexander, 21, and Charles Talmage Alexander, 20, are accused of attacking Edwin J. League on Sept. 18 at the NASA Golf Course at Moffett Field.

At the 13th hole, League asked three times if they could play through and Ryan Alexander finally responded, “I guess so,” then watched League tee off, criticized his shot and used profane language, according to the complaint filed Monday in federal court in San Jose. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

There were a few people, not negative shouts, saying ‘why am I starting him?’“But I thought he was ready, he was performing, he had a great start to the season. He was one of my better players.“When I got sacked at the end of 2014, I was in touch with all the players, but I said to Joe ‘I’m going to make two phone calls for you’.

It’s like me being a no.10 and a manager putting Tony Adams in my place. I’d be thinking what’s happening here?“A holding midfielder is not a centre-half. This lad is a £50m defender.“It’s not like he was always there, and Pep just doesn’t fancy him as a player – a bit like Mesut Ozil and Unai Emery – it’s not like that at all.“I would say that decision is the final proof that Pep just doesn’t trust Stones anymore.
