Bulldozer purchased by Region 6 raises eyebrows

first_img…bought for $15M, but needs $6M in repairs – ChairmanThe Region Six Administration has been called upon to investigate the purchase of a bulldozer which is different from what is documented in the regional records.The bulldozer was taken to the regional compound on Wednesday with mud and other debris on it.The bulldozer in the regional office compoundIn its 2017 budget proposal, the administration had proposed the purchase of a bulldozer to shape dams in the rice cultivation area and to assist cash crop farmers. As such $20 million were proposed for the purchase of the bulldozer, and this sum was approved in the 2017 National Budget.On Thursday, Councillor Zamal Hussain called on the administration to explain what was purchased, as he lamented that the bulldozer that was purchased appeared to be a “large Christmas toy,” and not the piece of equipment which the region needs.Weighing in on his observations, Regional Chairman David Armogan noted that the equipment appeared to be a D3 Caterpillar bulldozer, which was repainted and had a D4 sticker placed on it. The disputed bulldozer was reputed to have been purchased at a cost of $15 million.According to the Regional Chairman, based on its obvious level of deterioration, a further $6 million will soon have to be spent on the bulldozer.Regional Executive Officer Kim Stephens told the RDC that the bulldozer was not yet part of the region’s property, and the supplier is being awaited to hand over the registration.The REO has said that if this bulldozer is not the right piece of equipment, then it needs to be returned to the vendor.Moreover, Armogan has said that engineers should be invited to examine the equipment and evaluate its cost, and also whether it was indeed a Caterpillar D4 bulldozer.He has called for a full investigation into the matter.

Over 200 millimetres of precipitation this summer in Fort St. John

first_imgThat’s actually better than the norm for all 92 days of June-July and August, which is 211.5 millimetres. That total this year was unofficially 265.5. Now, however, local farmers and ranchers are focused on a month of harvest operations and looking for less precipitation. One would assume they’re not necessarily hoping for it to be as dry as last September, when the area received only 2.6 millimetres.- Advertisement –last_img

Burnley boss Dyche hits back at Mourinho’s referee criticism

first_img Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and Burnley boss Sean Dyche 1 Burnley manager Sean Dyche has hit back at Jose Mourinho’s criticism of referee Martin Atkinson after the Chelsea boss blamed officials for his side’s 1-1 draw with the Clarets on Saturday.After the Stamford Bridge clash, Mourinho highlighted four “crucial moments” in a thinly-vied attack on Atkinson, the most controversial of which saw midfielder Nemanja Matic sent off in the second half.Matic was dismissed for pushing Ashley Barnes after the Burnley striker had caught the Serbia international with a high, late challenge that Mourinho described as “criminal”.Chelsea’s website also broke down the incidents, while publishing the views of personalities who agreed with their manager.But Dyche claimed it was necessary to “give a balanced view” on the game’s events in a ten-minute interview with Burnley TV, in which the boss defended Barnes’ tackle.“When moments like that occur, it’s very rare there is not a reaction to that moment in the stadium,” the manager said.“Look at the reaction from a bunch of expert footballers from the Chelsea side – the likes of John Terry, Kurt Zouma, Branislav Ivanovic – big, strong boys who are on right top of this moment.“Jose Mourinho has a similar view to me, the crowd behind me, circa 15,000, no-one reacts. In live time no-one reacts except Matic.“After the event, with hindsight and slow motion, statements like ‘criminal tackle’ are being used. I find that hard to adjust to.”Dyche also believes Barnes’ tackle was not malicious, but instead a natural movement of his leg after the forward failed to complete a pass.“After the event of course, it looks an ugly challenge,” he added.“Ashley Barnes tried to play the ball down to Dave Jones behind him, his momentum and the pendulum motion of his leg swings up through the ball.“Matic is late getting there – not in a vicious way – but that means his [Barnes’] leg pendulums through and hits him on the shin.”The Clarets boss also addressed the other three incidents that Mourinho cited, including two Chelsea penalty appeals that Atkinson turned down before half-time.Dyche admits Michael Kightly’s handball in the 33rd minute would “usually” result in a spot-kick but insisted Jason Shackell’s apparent push on Diego Costa eight minutes later was harder to call.“Jason Shackell definitely gets a mild hand on him – is that enough for him to go down? It’s a real debating point,” he said.“That’s a close one. The first one usually gets given but that one is a real tough one for referees.“He [Costa] is off balance anyway, he gets a slight nudge and he goes down.“I’m not remotely saying he went down easily or is trying to simulate, I just mean it’s a mild contact which inevitably means he ends up on the floor.“I think that’s a tough one, particularly when you consider the referee’s actual angle to see that incident.”last_img read more

Public investment ‘sustaining growth’

first_img“However, the crisis does re-emphasise the need to continue implementing interventions identified, as these address the long-term structural constraints to the economy and seek to promote a fast-growing, dynamic and resilient economy.” “The emergence of the global economic crisis has begun to impact on the real economy, which does pose challenges for the government’s economic plan of action,” Mpahlwa said. And in January, the Cabinet approved the broad policy framework that will guide the country’s Water for Growth and Development initiative, aimed at ensuring a safe, secure supply of water. South Africa has also been investing heavily in its infrastructure in the lead-up to the 2010 Fifa World Cup, with billions being spent on transport infrastructure, stadiums and surrounding areas. Finance Minster Trevor Manuel said in his Budget speech in February that the government would spend an estimated R787-billion on public infrastructure over the next three years. This investment would not only boost the economy in the short, medium and long term, but also provide hundreds of thousands of people with employment during a period of expected economic hardship. The government’s decision to invest in infrastructure on a grand scale was now driving investment and sustaining the country’s economy, Mpahlwa said. “Progress has also been made in the construction and maintenance of water infrastructure, as well as gaining a better understanding of the water challenges that face us,” he said. A high level of public investment in South Africa’s infrastructure has helped sustain the country’s economy in the midst of the global economic recession. The work of the capital expenditure programme was vital in driving industrial development in the economy, Mpahlwa said, with undertakings such as Eskom’s build programme spurring mass investment. Source: BuaNews Speaking in Pretoria this week, Trade and Industry Minister Mandisi Mpahlwa said that while South Africa’s economic growth between 2004 and 2007 was initially driven by high commodity prices and increased consumer spending, the global recession had seen both commodity prices and consumer demand fall. Eskom’s R150-billion investment in electricity infrastructure for the five years leading to 2011/12 has begun, he added, with the return to service of power stations Camden, Grootvlei and Komati. 11 March 2009 Infrastructure investmentlast_img read more
