With the investigation into Indigenous land rights being put on hold, Government is moving ahead with the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into ancestral lands, and has begun inviting members of the public to start indicating their interest in participating by submitting matters for consideration.The first round of the public hearings will begin on August 21. During that segment, the CoI will hear matters relating to ancestral lands and other land issues. Groups and individuals interested in submitting matters for considerationPresident David Granger with the newly sworn-in commissioners of the Lands Commissionhave until today to do so.President David Granger had in March of this year established a CoI under the Commission of Inquiry Act, to examine and make recommendations to resolve all issues, and uncertainties surrounding the claims of Amerindian land titling, the individual, joint or communal ownership of lands acquired by freed Africans and any matters relating to land titling in Guyana.The Commission will be headed by Reverend Oswald Peter Chuck-A-Sang, and will include other members such as Paulette Henry, David James, Carol Khan, Professor Rudolph James, Lennox Caleb and Berlinda Persaud.According to the official Gazette, prior to Guyana gaining independence in 1966, several ordinances and declarations were passed by the colonial Administration related to the definition of lands, including those of 1902, post-1904 and 1910. After gaining independence, several efforts aimed at resolving ancestral land right issues were undertaken.In particular, an official investigation through a Commission known as the Amerindian Lands Commission (ALC) was established in 1967. Subsequently, in 1976, the 1951 the Amerindian Act was amended to provide for the granting of titles to Amerindian communities. The outcome of the initial, as well as current titling, efforts did not provide closure on issues of Amerindian land claims. For various reasons, many of these issues remain unresolved to date.Meanwhile, the status of lands that were purchased by the freed Africans around and after 1839, and formed the first villages in Guyana, have not been accessible to their descendants for various reasons.Lands, which were acquired by freed Africans and were the subject of joint or communal ownership or of individual ownership, are now subject to much uncertainty.The original CoI had included investigations into land rights in Amerindian communities, however after much protest by the National Toshao’s Council (NTC) and the Amerindian People’s Association (APA) Government was forced to put that aspect of the investigation on hold.The NTC had argued that it really did not understand the real function of the CoI, particularly since there was no consultation between Government and representatives of Guyana’s first people.
Belgium were facing a World Cup exit when goals by Genki Haraguchi and Takashi Inui in four devastating minutes put Japan 2-0 up early in the second half.Hazard said memories of their shock 3-1 defeat to the unfancied Welsh in the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 came flooding back.“To be fair, we were thinking it was like two years ago against Wales,” said Hazard.“But we have players who can change the game and they came off the bench to make the difference.”– Fighting spirit –From 2-0 down, Belgium clawed back a goal from Jan Vertonghen before replacements Marouane Fellaini and Nacer Chadli, who hit the 94th-minute winner, also scored to complete the fight back.“During the first half we were quite good, but things went wrong at the start of the second half, both goals were avoidable, but the reaction we showed was great,” said Hazard.The victory emphatically answered any questions about the Belgians’ fighting spirit.“These are the type of matches we need, so we are all very happy,” Hazard added.“It’s going to be magnificent playing against Brazil and we need to rest and regenerate.”Chadli’s superbly worked goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time was the final act of an epic last-16 battle.Belgium become the first team in 48 years to successfully overturn a 2-0 deficit in a World Cup knockout game.“In the first 60 minutes, we were a little roughed up by the Japanese, who were very well-prepared for our tactics,” said Belgium’s match-winner Chadli.“We started to win our duels and showed that we had more desire than them.”“It (his goal) was like a dream. The coach made the changes because he wanted more power in the middle and we managed to bring that.“When I was warming up (to come on), I saw the Japanese were tiring.“It was important to avoid extra-time.“Brazil are a big team, we’ve seen them play, we have to rest, focus on the next game. There is not much time.”Fellaini, who scored their second less than nine minutes after coming on, said Belgium earned the reward for their never-say-die spirit.“It was an important game for us because we showed the mentality, we come back from 2-0 and scored three goals in 90 minutes,” said Fellaini, who has just signed a contract extension with Manchester United.“It will be tough against Brazil, we know their quality, so it’s going to be a good test.“We are more mature than before and we all want to show what we can do against Brazil.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Belgium’s midfielder Marouane Fellaini (C) celebrates with Belgium’s forward Eden Hazard (L) and midfielder Youri Tielemans (R) after scoring a goal during the Russia 2018 World Cup round of 16 football match between Belgium and Japan. © AFP / Jack GUEZROSTOV-ON-DON, Russian Federation, Jul 3 – Eden Hazard admitted memories of Belgium’s shock Euro 2016 defeat to Wales haunted him during their stunning 3-2 last-gasp win over Japan to reach the World Cup quarter-finals.“We are just so happy to go through,” said Belgium captain Hazard, who was the man of the match in Rostov, as his side set up a quarter-final against Brazil in Kazan on Friday.
“One thing with these knockout fixtures is that if you get a good result at home, the next game away is usually easier. That is our basic plan to ensure we get a win at home and keep a clean sheet. If we can do that, then getting a result away from home, even a draw will be enough for us,” the youthful tactician said.Bandari are making only their second appearance in continental football and have already surpassed their performance from their debut season in 2016 where they couldn’t go past the preliminary round.And Mwalala now hopes they can do even better and achieve something that he couldn’t as a player, twice with Yanga and the same number of times with Uganda’s SC Villa.Bandari’s Collins Agade tries to go in for a header during his side’s CAF Confederation Cup match against Sudan’s Al Ahly Shandy at the Kasarani Stadium on August 10, 2019.

If we had ever made it to the quarter finals in those years, our lives would have changed,” Mwalala explains.“It is the same for them. If they can get to the group stages, they will expose themselves to the whole of the world and who knows what might happen. This is what motivates us,” further added the tactician.Looking on to the Guerdane challenge, Mwalala expects a very tough game both home and away.“I have done some bit of research on them and they are a very good team. Technically and tactically, they are very organized and have players who can keep the ball on the ground. The strategy is to shut their spaces and ensure they don’t have time on the ball. If they do, they will kill us,”“Also, we have to take our chances. We have had a problem where we create so many chances but don’t convert. This time, we have worked on that and hopefully it shows in the match,” further said Mwalala.Bandari FC players during a training session in Nairobi.

They started training last Tuesday and I will look at both and whoever is fitter will start and maybe the other one comes on later. Missing two of your best strikers in such a game is tough,” the coach added.Bandari say they have picked lessons from their preliminary round game against Sudan’s Al Ahly Shandy and between then and now, the coach says his side has greatly improved.0Shares0000(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Bandari FC head coach Bernard Mwalala chats with members of his technical bench during a training session in Nairobi.

1 Former Manchester United flop Angel di Maria believes Paris Saint-Germain can sign Barcelona legend Lionel Messi.The four-time Ballon d’Or winner is very happy at the Nou Camp but that has not stopped clubs eyeing his signature.All of the Premier League’s big sides hope they can lure Messi to England, and Manchester City are reportedly willing to offer the Argentinean £800,000-a-week.However, Messi’s international team-mate, Di Maria, believes there is more chance of his countryman heading to Paris.“I hope PSG can bring Messi to Paris one day,” Di Maria told RMC. “Everything is possible. It is all about money. It would take a lot of money to sign a player like him.“But it would be great for Ligue 1 and French football in general if Messi joined PSG. The club has the resources to sign him and he could come to Paris.” Lionel Messi and Angel di Maria
