More Eritrean footballers go missing in Kenya
Image

Nairobi, Dec 19 (IANS) A dozen members of the Eritrean team for the regional CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup that went missing in Kenya cannot be traced as the regional football governing body is set to discuss the next course of action against the act.

CECAFA (Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations) secretary general, Nicholas Musonye and Nairobi police boss, Benson Kibui, confirmed Wednesday that the 12, including the head coach, Omer Ahmed and captain Haile Goitom who abandoned their team are yet to be found, reports Xinhua.

"We will discuss the situation with Eritrea at our next general assembly since we cannot let them use CECAFA to run away from their country," Musonye stated.

Among measures set to be taken against Eritrea are banning the team from the competition altogether.

He was, however, non committal when pressed why security was not tightened around the squad when initially, two players left the team ahead of their second Group B match Nov 31 despite assurances that measures would be implemented.

"That is now a police case and we are waiting for the conclusion of the investigations. After two disappeared, another nine players and the coach joined them when their tournament ended (at the group stage)," Musonye added.

On his part, Kibui once again claimed his office was yet to receive a formal report from CECAFA but investigations were ongoing.

"I will follow it up with department of immigration and find out where they are," the police chief added.

In total, 24 Eritrean nationals have vanished on Kenyan soil during the regional event, with a dozen going missing in 2009 to match those who fled this year.

In what is becoming a ritual, a batch of seven also abandoned the team in Kampala last year having skipped the 2010 and 2011 editions.

South Sudan fighting resumes, death toll reaches 26

(Reuters) – Gunfire erupted again in South Sudan’s capital Juba on Tuesday, a day after President Salva Kiir said security forces had put down an attempted coup by supporters of his former deputy Riek Machar.

Constant gunfire and explosions in the early morning were followed by a few hours of relatively calm before sporadic gunfire resumed, witnesses said.

At least 26 people have been killed in the clashes in the capital, Makur Matur Kariom, Health Ministry undersecretary, told Reuters.

"These are the people we received at the hospital and who died actually at the hospital. Whoever died outside the hospital, we don’t have their numbers," Kariom said from Juba Teaching Hospital.

Kiir imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on Monday to try to restore order. Residents say the security clampdown makes life that was already tough harder still.

"Food and water an issue for the population as they don’t have fridges or city power so they buy food almost daily," said one aid worker in Juba, who asked not to be identified. "They haven’t stocked up and are getting worried." (Reporting by Andrew Green; Writing by Drazen Jorgic; Editing by John Stonestreet)
