Civil hold Karonga to sail through into 2021 Airtel Top 8 Semifinals – The Maravi Post




By Edwin Mbewe

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Karonga Stadium experienced intermittent connection of Airtel network hence Karonga United players failed to make calls,to send messages and transfer money through Airtel money.

The game started slowly in the first half, both teams did not show hunger for early goals as at some point the play was dominated by aerial balls.

Civil Service United put an extra gear in the dying minutes of the first half and their efforts paid dividend through Binwell Katinji, who scored seconds before the end of the half.

Second half the host started on a high note taking into consideration that,they were supposed to score more than three goals in this half if they were to sail through.

The visitors, however, defended their narrow lead well until around 70th minute when Clement Nyondo netted one for the host.Nyondo’s goal was however not enough to take Shingwina Sha Karonga to the next level of the Airtel Top eight. Mphatso Kamanga was later voted man of the match.

Civil Service United has qualified into semifinals on a three to one goal aggregate after first leg at Silver Stadium had ended two to nil.Innocent Tanganyika and Lanken Mwale scored for the Servants.

Franco Ndawa, Civil Coach, was happy with the result at Karonga Stadium saying the game was won in Lilongwe and that today’s game was just to wind up the quarterfinal task.

“We are ready to meet any team either Silver Strikers or TN Stars who meet tomorrow at Chitowe, When we return home,will prepare well”, Ndawa added.

Karonga United team manager, Wilberforce Longwe, acknowledged the defeat and that they are out of the competition and he has since wished their counterparts all the best in the future.

“We did not play according to our plan,we copied our friend’s system of aerial balls, but thanks to my boys for finding a goal in the second half”,Longwe highlighted.

Karonga United played in the Airtel top eight finals in 2019 season against Silver Strikers where they lost by a goal to nil.

They thought it would be the same this year but it wasn’t to be as Servants had different plans,cutting all cables leading to Karonga Stadium making Karonga United experience intermittent Airtel network.

TN Stars host Silver Strikers FC who defeated them by a goal to nil a week ago at Chitowe Stadium, the winner meet the Servants in the semifinals. Nyasa Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers already qualified into the semifinals.

This year’s winner of Airtel top eight will receive MK17.5 million as grand prize.

Dictatorship! North Korea leader Kim Jong Un bans leather coats outfits that resembles his look – The Maravi Post




North Korea has reportedly banned people from wearing leather trench coats because dictatorial ruler Kim Jong-un doesn’t want his citizen dressing up like him.

First worn by Kim in 2019, the coat became popular among the North Korean elite who were keen to show their loyalty to the Supreme Leader and who could afford real leather.

But due to imitations of leather trench coats, fashion police have reportedly been deployed to shut down merchants selling them and take them off people amid fears it cheapens Kim’s look and undermines his authority.

‘[Police] say that wearing clothes designed to look like the Highest Dignity’s is an ‘impure trend to challenge the authority of the Highest Dignity,’ a source told Radio Free Asia, using a common honorific to refer to Kim.

‘They instructed the public not to wear leather coats, because it is part of the party’s directive to decide who can wear them.’

The outlet said knock-off versions of the coat first began appearing in September this year when unofficial trade between China and North Korea was reopened following a shut-down during the Covid pandemic.

That allowed traders to start acquiring synthetic leather to make the coats from.

Radio Free Asia claimed to have seen an import document from recent months that showed dozens of metres of the material being imported.

Kim first appeared in a leather coat in December 2019, around the time he was negotiating with Donald Trump over North Korea’s nuclear stockpile.

The styling was noted by South Korean media, which suggested it was indicative of Kim’s desire to break with tradition and forge his own identity.

He had largely styled himself after his father and grandfather, the founder of North Korea by wearing Mao-style jackets and horn-rimmed glasses.
