Chitembwe disappointed as PSL rookies Bikita Minerals stun CAPS United

Spread This News

By Sport Reporter 

CAPS United were shocked to a 1-0 defeat by new boys Bikita Minerals in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match played Thursday afternoon at Rufaro stadium.

Makepeke were outclassed by The Lithium Boys who opened the scoring account of the match in 27 minutes thanks to technically gifted Chris Makambira who bustled his way into the box before placing the ball in the left bottom corner.

Bikita Minerals made several attempts to double their lead but it was of no avail as Godknows Murwira was providing the much-needed cover for Makepeke.

The second half was a game for both sides but poor finishing in the final third cost Makepeke.

“It was a decent performance but we didn’t get the result we wanted considering our performance from the last game.

“Overall I’m disappointed with the performance but it’s part of the game,” said CAPS United head coach during a post-match interview.

Bikita Minerals coach Saup Chaminuka saluted his boys for a good performance, lamenting that he has assembled a special group which is hungry for results.

“It is a game I think we did send a message that we are in the Premier League, these boys are just a special group of players considering the little time we have trained together they are doing well.

“We prepared for all the 18 games during pre-season and now it’s time for execution,” he said.

After playing two league games, Bikita Minerals remains unbeaten and they will have another big test on Monday when they host Dynamos on Monday at Sakubva Stadium.

By Tinei Tuhwe

A 23-year old Mozambican will spend the next 16 years in a Zimbabwean prison following his conviction and sentencing for raping a minor.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), the convict, whose name was not given, was convicted by a Chipinge magistrate after a full trial.

Prosecutors proved that the rape took place on March 12 this year.

The complainant, aged 13, was on her way from their homestead to a nearby business center in Chipinge.

“He grabbed her by the shoulders and dragged her to a nearby bush where he threatened her with a knife before raping her,” said the NPA in a statement.

The court heard the victim screamed for help and was heard by a passerby who rushed to the scene and rescued her while the suspect grabbed his clothes and took to his heels.

The matter was reported to the police leading to the arrest of the perpetrator.

Nigeria recalls ‘toxic’ children’s cough syrup

Spread This News


NIGERIA’S drug regulator has recalled a batch of Johnson & Johnson children’s cough syrup after tests showed it contained “an unacceptable high level” of a toxic and potentially fatal substance.

The substance, Diethylene glycol, “was found to cause acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals”, Nigeria’s National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) said on Wednesday

It added that human consumption of the Diethylene glycol results in toxic effects, including abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, inability to pass urine, headache, altered mental state, and acute kidney injury which may lead to death.

The substance has been linked to the recent deaths of dozens of children in Cameroon and The Gambia.

Laboratory tests on the recalled Benylin Paediatric syrup also showed that it caused “acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals”, the regulator added.

Neither Johnson & Johnson nor Kenvue – which owns the Benylin brand after becoming independent from Johnson & Johnson last year- have commented on the NAFDAC’s statement.

The syrup was manufactured in South Africa in May 2021 and had an expiry date of April 2024.

The syrup’s packaging says it can be used for relieving cough and congestive symptoms and for treating fever and other allergic conditions among children aged between two and 12 years.
