PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 17 – Emerging Stars head coach Francis Kimanzi says he will mix up his squad on Sunday when the team goes down against Mauritius in the return leg of the first round 2020 Tokyo Olympics Qualifier in Port Louis.Carrying a 5-0 advantage from the first leg, Kimanzi will be tempted to play around with the squad and give playing time to players who did not have a chance on Wednesday in Nairobi. “We had a camp of 22 players and we are only allowed to have 18 on the game. We have a few who did not get a chance to play, not because they are not good but because there are rules. We are not giving presents to anyone but at 5-0, they stand a chance to play and also build their confidence,” Kimanzi said.The tactician though has made two changes to his squad, the Mathare United duo of Ahmed Ahmad and Lennox Ogutu being named in the team while there’s no place for the England-based duo of Jonah Ayunga and Henry Ochieng.Ochieng came on as a second half substitute in the first leg while Ayunga was not part of the 18. Kimanzi says the two players have good quality but notes he will take time integrating them into the team.“When you have a lot of new players from a different culture, it is usually tricky for them in the first time and as a coach you have to be clever when introducing them. They have great quality but you have to build a foundation first before bringing them in,” Kimanzi added.Harambee Stars Under-23 skipper Joseph Okumu goes up for an aerial challenge against Mauritius’ Alison during the 2020 Olympic Qualifier at Kasarani Stadium on November 14, 2018.

When you play the first match and you get the confidence to play the way they did and get a huge win, then it is impressive. They did their best and showed they are ready to play,” Kimanzi further stated.Meanwhile, Harambee Stars head coach who has been part of the Under-23 technical bench says he has been impressed with some of the players and they stand a chance of making it into the senior team, singling out defender Okumu.Harambee Stars Under-23 midfielder Teddy Osok vies for the ball Mauritius’ Adel Lingue during the 2020 Olympic Qualifier at Kasarani Stadium on November 14, 2018.

It is good some of them they are very interesting, but in the high level, you have to repeat your performance or even better,” the tactician said.Meanwhile, he has also stated that if the team makes it to the third round of qualification, he will not call any of them for the AFCON qualifier against Ghana next March as the two tournaments clash dates.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img

first_imgHome » News » Brokenshire reveals plans to speed up leasehold sales previous nextRegulation & LawBrokenshire reveals plans to speed up leasehold salesAnnouncement is part of wide-ranging speech by minister yesterday including setting ground rents to zero and confirming sales ban for leasehold houses.Nigel Lewis28th June 201901,141 Views Housing minister James Brokenshire made several high-profile announcements yesterday during his keynote speech at the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual conference in Manchester including leasehold sales.But it also included significant announcements on ground rents, Help to Buy as well as leasehold management.The most important of these for estate agents is that Brokenshire wants to see the sales of leasehold properties in managed blocks speeded up.“Freeholders and managing agents have been able to charge what they want – and take as long as they want – to provide leaseholders with the information they need to sell their home,” he said.“This slows down sales and affects property chains and has to stop.“For that reason, we will be setting a time limit of 15 working days and a maximum fee of £200 plus VAT.Ground rentsBrokenshire also revealed plans to reduce the amount freeholders can change leaseholders in ground rent each year to zero, with no exclusions for retirement home builders, who had been lobbying to stop such a measure.“With new ground rents set to zero, and the Law Commission reviewing the process of easing enfranchisement and helping leaseholder empowerment through right to manage and commonhold tenure, this adds up to a devastating assault on speculations in residential freeholds,” says Sebastian O’Kelly of the Leasehold Knowledge Partnership.Brokenshire also confirmed that he is to vary the contracts the government has with house builders in its Help to Buy Scheme to stop them selling leasehold houses.As we have reported separately, Brokenshire also announced the introduction of a national tenant deposit passporting system.Read his speech in full. ground rents James Brokenshire leasehold management June 28, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Christ Church appoints a new dean

first_imgChrist Church has appointed the Reverend Canon Professor Martyn William Percy as the new Dean to replace the outgoing Reverend Christopher Lewis, who has been in the position since 2002.Professor Percy has been the Principal of Ripon College, Cuddesdon since 2004, and is married to Dr Emma Percy, Chaplain of Trinity College.He also holds the distinction of being the only real-world theologian to be quoted in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code. Commenting on the “exciting and challenging” nature of the job, Professor Percy stated, “I am very much looking forward to serving the unique foundation that is Christ Church – a college of the University and the Cathedral of the Diocese. I am particularly looking forward to working together with colleagues throughout the College and the Cathedral, as well as with the senior staff of the Diocese.”Christ Church has a unique status, being the only academic institution in the world that is also a cathedral. As the Visitor of Christ Church is the reigning monarch, the Dean of Christ Church is one of the few academic positions that must be personally approved by the Queen.David Nowell, Senior Censor at Christ Church, commented to Cherwell, “Martyn is an excellent fit for the Deanship of Christ Church in a number of important respects: he is an active academic, committed to the importance of teaching and research; and he has experience of college life at Cambridge and at Cuddesdon. Martyn also has wide experience as a priest.”He further noted, “We look forward to welcoming Martyn and his family to Christ Church in the autumn.”A second year philosopher at Christ Church commented, “We look forward to welcoming the new Dean to Christ Church and I am sure the dean will enjoy his time here. Christ Church often attracts media attention for all the wrong reasons, and I hope he will be a good fi gure to attempt to challenge this.”Percy is due to take up the post at Christ Church in October 2014.last_img
