Mwandishi afungwa kwa kushiriki ngono nje ya ndoa

Mwandishi wa habari wa Morocco amehukumiwa kifungo cha mwaka mmoja jela kwa kosa la kufanya ngono kabla ya ndoa na kutoa mimba hiyo.

Wanaharakati wanasema kuwa hiyo ni moja ya mbinu ya kuwadhoofisha waandishi wakosoaji.

Hajar Raissouni alikamatwa na mchumba wake wakati wakiwa wanatoka kliniki iliyopo mji mkuu wa Rabat mwezi Agosti.

Mtuhumiwa huyo mwenye miaka 28 alikanusha madai yanayomkabili na kusema kuwa alienda hospitalini kwa ajili ya matibabu ya damu iliyokuwa inatoka kwa ndani.

Bi.Raissouni anafanya kazi katika gazeti binafsi ambalo huwa linakosoa serikali.

Mwandishi huyo wa gazeti la Akhbar Al-Yaoum daily , anasema kuwa anakataa kesi hiyo dhidi yake na kudai kuwa ni kesi ya kisiasa, amesema pia amekuwa akihojiwa na polisi kuhusu familia yake na uandishi wake.

Akiwa amevaa kitambaa cheusi kichwani , bi .Raissouni alifika mahakamani akiwa mtulivu .

Yeye na mchumba wake ambaye ni raia wa Sudan walikanusha kutoa mimba.

” Tumeshtushwa na haya madai,” wakili wake alisema, Abdelmoula El Marouri, aliiambia Reuters kuwa rekodi zote za matibabu na ushaidi uliotolewa kisheria unapaswa kulenga kuwa hana hatia.

Ingawa anasema kuwa atakata rufaa dhidi ya kesi hiyo.

Mwendesha mashtaka wa kesi hiyo anasema kuwa sababu zilizopelekea mwandishi huyo kukamatwa hazina uhusiano wowote na kazi yake kama mwandishi na kliniki aliyoenda ilikuwa chini ya uangalizi wa polisi ili kukamata watu wanaotoa mimba kinyume na sheria.

Mahakama imemuhukumu mwaka mmoja na daktari aliyetoa mimba hiyo alihukumiwa miaka miwili.

Daktari msaidizi na nesi wa kliniki hiyo walikutwa hawana hatia ingawa walipewa angalizo.

Ahmed Benchemsi, kutoka Human Rights Watch,ameelezea kesi hiyo kuwa haikuzingatia haki za binadamu na imeingilia uhuru wa mtu binafsi.

World Cup 2018: Morocco Winger Amrabat Labels VAR As Bull****

The climax of Group B provided plenty of drama but unfortunately the football was by no means the star of the show.

The video assistant referee was used frequently throughout both games and played a huge role in late goals which allowed Spain to climb above Portugal and finish top.

And Morocco winger Nordin Amrabat was was particularly unimpressed as he was seen telling the cameras that VAR is b******* following his side’s 2-2 draw with Spain.

Morocco had been on course to end their campaign with a victory before Iago Aspas found the net with a cheeky finish in injury time.

The goal was originally given offside but the referee’s decision was overturned after replays showed Nabil Dirar had played the forward onside. The African team may have been furious but justice was ultimately done.

Uruguay beat ten man Russia 3-0 in their final world cup group A match to finish top with nine points, while the hosts progressed to the last 16 as runners up.

In the same group, hard fighting Egypt finished bottom after a 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia. However, veteran Egypt keeper El Hadary made history by becoming the oldest player to feature in the tournament aged 45 years and 161 days.

In pool B, Portugal progressed to the knockout stages with a 1-1 draw against Iran in a game full of VAR controversies. Veteran Ricardo Quaresma scored a first half before Karim Ansarifard tucked a late Iran spot kick into the top corner, as captain Cristiano Ronado’s penalty was saved.

Uruguay will play Portugal in the last 16 while Russia will tackle Spain.


Harambee Stars Squad Jet Out Ahead Of Mauritania And Morocco Friendlies

Kakamega High School student James Mazembe is expected to make his international debut with the national team, Harambee Stars when they face Mauritania and Morocco on August 31 and September 4 respectively during their double fixture for the Fifa international break.

Mazembe, a surprise call up to the team, is in the squad courtesy of his High School games heroics which left a number of SportPesa Premier League clubs chasing for his services once he wraps up his studies.

Mazembe’s future looks bright amid the pride to don the national colours.

The 22-man squad largely made up of players who feature in the domestic leagues will be tested to the limits against two team from West Africa, who have something to prove after recent dismal performances.

The team left the country yesterday for Morocco, where they are due to play Morocco and Mauritania tomorrow and Monday next week respectively. They will be under the stewardship of Wazito FC tactician, Frank Ouna.

Goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch is one of the regulars in the Harambee Stars squad that has made the trip to Morocco at the expense of the international friendly against Mozambique. Also included in the team is Oluoch’s team-mates Haron Shakava and Ernest Wendo, who have previously featured for the senior team.

Also making the cut is Sofapaka left back Wesley Onguso, whose memory of his first tour of duty, was not a very pleasant one as it ended with a Hull City player being concussed during the Sportpesa All Stars team tour of England after an aerial collision with the then western Stima defender.

Tusker right back Collins Shivachi and Kariobangi Sharks midfielder Patilla Omoto were also in the team that left the country yesterday morning.

Meanwhile the squad set to play Mozambique in the Fifa friendly match on September 2 extended their stay in camp in preparation for the clash. Under Stanley Okumbi, the team is set to jet out on Thursday for Maputo with the tactician missing key foreign-based players who did not make it to the camp.

Okumbi, however, expressed his confidence in the available players as the foreign-based ones were not guaranteed to turn up in every other call up.

“We will miss them but I am confident the ones I have will deliver. Foreign-based players can miss out because of injuries or other personal issues and this gives a chance to others who are capable of representing the country. We are leaving for Maputo on a mission to get back to our winning ways after the loss to Sierra Leone.”

Okumbi further cleared the rumours in regards to Erick “Marcelo” Ouma’s omission in the squad. “Against Sierra Leone, Marcelo was a bit nervous and slow. He wasn’t the boy we knew before a result which left me and the technical bench with questions over the quality of the Georgian league.

I am sure his omission will make him work harder to regain his position. Meanwhile, we have Aboud Omar.”

US-based David “Cheche” Ochieng said the team is ready to play Mozambique. “We are training for the away game and hopefully, we will win.”


AFCON 2017: Egypt Storm Into Semis After Edging Out Morocco

Egypt knocked out Morocco to reach the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals as substitute Mahmoud Abdel-Moneim prodded home a dramatic 87th-minute winner.

Mohammed Salah had twice been denied by Munir Mohamedi, but prior to the goal Morocco missed a host of good chances.

Aziz Bouhaddouz failed to connect with a cross from two yards out, before seeing a header deflected just wide.

And Morocco defender Romain Saiss and midfielder Mbark Boussoufa were both denied by the crossbar.

Egypt go on to play Burkina Faso, who beat Tunisia 2-0 in their quarter-final on Saturday.

In Sunday’s other quarter-final, Ghana beat DR Congo 2-1 to set up a meeting with Cameroon, who knocked out Senegal.

Egypt – the most successful side in Africa Cup of Nations history with seven titles – are yet to concede a goal in Gabon on their return to the competition after a seven-year absence.

Funny Anecdote On Harambee Stars Players By Ghost

Radio Jambo presenter Ghost is a revered man among football lovers in the country seeing that he is the last coach to lead Harambee Stars to success on the continental stage. Well, being Kenyan, qualifying for AFCON and winning a match there counts for success.

Ghost coached Kenya’s golden generation of footballers and together they toured all over Africa playing qualifier and friendly matches as they worked towards, and eventually managed, to qualify for AFCON 2004.

Being happy-go-lucky lads, Ghost and his team were always bound to return to the country with good and beautiful memories from the nations they visited and perhaps one of the funniest stories is when they went to play a match in Morocco and got to leave a lasting, but funny, impression on the locals.

While there, Ghost and his players decided to take a tour of the local market so that they see what souvenirs they could buy for themselves as well as presents for loved one back in Kenya.

Their interaction with the traders at the market brought out a peculiar habit about Kenyans which the Moroccans found so amusing: bargaining.

Ghsot and his players were always bargaining with the traders and due to language barrier they kept telling the traders “down” whenever a price was mentioned to them.

The traders however insisted that their prices was fixed but all the same had fun negotiating with Ghost and company on the prices of various goods.

In true Kenyan fashion, Ghost and his players told the traders they would return another time when their pockets are well-lined and when they did, the traders welcomed them with a chorus “down! down! down!”.

Keep it here for more funny stories from Ghost from his time as Harambee Stars coach.

Morocco jails two over anti-gay beating

A Moroccan court sentenced two men to four months in jail Thursday for beating up a presumed homosexual because of his appearance, a rights group said.

The verdict was delivered by a court in the central city of Fez where a crowd of angry youths assaulted a man in July, accusing him of being a homosexual.

Mustapha Jebbour, of the Moroccan Association of Human Rights, said the pair were also ordered to pay a fine of 500 dirhams (around 50 euros/$55).

The men were arrested after websites posted a video of the victim trying in vain to take shelter in a taxi to escape a crowd.

The man is seen collapsing to the ground under an avalanche of blows.

He finally gets to his feet, clothes torn, and tries of take cover in a shop before a policeman appears and holds up his gun to disperse the crowd.

The footage triggered outrage in Morocco, with people taking to social media to denounce the assault and one website, Le360, comparing the attack to the “barbarity” of the Islamic State group.

Some 70 lawyers mobilised to represent the victim, who Jebbour said “is still in shock and needs psychological support”.

Following the arrest of the two men, the justice ministry vowed to “deal firmly” against “those who stand in for the law”.

Homosexual activity is punishable in Morocco by up to three years in jail. A divisive law — known as Article 489 — has been the subject of several protests, including a recent topless demonstration by feminist group Femen in the capital.

After a string of controversies over homosexuality, two men were jailed for four months on June 19 for kissing in public in Rabat. They were convicted of an “affront to public decency” and an “unnatural act with a person of the same sex”.
