Salah 66) aetEgypt won 4-3 on penaltiesThursdayCameroon v Ghana Libreville, Gabon | AFP | Veteran goalkeeper Essam El Hadary’s save from Bertrand Traore’s spot-kick allowed Egypt to beat Burkina Faso 4-3 on penalties on Wednesday as they secured their place in the Africa Cup of Nations final.A tense match in Libreville had ended 1-1 after 90 minutes and extra time, with Mohamed Salah’s superb 66th-minute opener for the Egyptians quickly cancelled out by Aristide Bance for Burkina Faso. Abdallah El Said missed Egypt’s first penalty in the shoot-out but El Hadary kept the Pharaohs in it when he saved from opposing goalkeeper Herve Koffi, and the 44-year-old veteran then denied Traore from the last kick of the shoot-out.For Egypt, the record seven-time champions of Africa, the win completes a remarkable journey all the way to the final in their first appearance in the tournament after a seven-year absence.They will play Cameroon or Ghana in the final in Gabon’s capital on Sunday as they look to reclaim a trophy they had won three times in a row between 2006 and 2010 before their fall from grace.Share on: WhatsApp
firstname.lastname@example.org Share on: WhatsApp Jacob Kiplimo wins. PHOTO @IAAFORGThe persistent calls for increased funding towards sports grew louder when a Ugandan teenager, Jacob Kiplimo won gold at the IAAF Cross country championship that was held in Uganda recently- saying the country has enormous, untapped potential. Seventeen year old Kiplimo won gold in the U20 category in the 8km race, the first gold for Uganda in a World Cross Country championship organised by International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF). Various players in the sports arena have urged Ugandan authorities to significantly increase its sports budget to cater to the abundance of talent in the country. The government had promised to construct a high altitude training centre for athletes in Kapchorwa but the project has failed to take off. Analysts say the absence of facilities is what prompts stars like Kiplimo to train from neighbouring Kenya.****

Modern day marriages fixed on social media platforms like Facebook are bound to fail, remarked Justice J.B. Pardiwala of Gujarat High Court while dealing with a petition on domestic violence and dowry demand. The court disposed of the case of domestic violence and advised the couple to dissolve their marriage and think about future avenues in life. Justice Pardiwala was hearing the petition filed by Anitaben Shah, whose son Jaideep had married to one Fansi Shah after they first met in virtual world Facebook and subsequently met in person and got married in 2015.The petition was filed to quash charges of domestic violence and dowry demand levelled by Fansi Shah against her husband, in-laws and brother -in law. In the judgement delivered on January 24, Justice Pardiwala observed that within two months of their marriage, serious problems cropped up between the couple. “They got married and within two months thereafter problems cropped up in their marital life. I should make note of one fact that the parties did try to settle the matter, however, the settlement could not be arrived at,” the judge observed.“This is one of the those modern marriages fixed on Facebook, therefore, bound to fail,” Pardiwala noted, asking the couple to mutually divorce and start a new chapter in life. The court quashed the FIR filed by Fansi against her in-laws while allowing investigation against Jaideep, her husband. The court held that primarily, the respondent number 2 (Fansi) had problems with her husband and yet her in-laws were arraigned as accused in her FIR that she filed in Rajkot after she left her husband’s house. “I am still of the view that the parties should explore the possibility of settlement and put an end to the marriage with consent. Both the sides are young. Once the marriage is dissolved, they can think about their future avenues in life”, the court noted in its order.
