DYNAMOS coach Genesis Mangombe feels that Monday’s match against Bikita Minerals at Sakubva stadium is a must-win for his side if he is to keep his job safe.

Dembare is yet to win a match this season with two points in the bag out of a possible nine.

Mangombe’s side opened the campaign with a 2-1 defeat in the hands of traditional rivals Highlanders before drawing against Hwange and Yadah, that is 2-2 and 0- 0 respectively.

The last time Dynamos went for three opening games without a win was in 2016 under Portuguese coach Paulo Silva who went for five games without a win before he was eventually fired.

“We need to win games, Bikita is not a bad side obviously they were spying on us when we played Yadah, so we have to be fully prepared for them because they will be ready for us.

“For us we need maximum points, meaning we need to work extra hard to win our next assignment,” said Genesis Mangombe ahead of the Bikita Minerals clash.

Although he admits that not winning comes with pressure, Mangombe says he is happy with the progress of his team despite that his club’s faithfuls demand more.

“As Dynamos I’m not happy that we have not yet won a game, but as a coach, I am happy because there is progress.

“For the first time this season, we did not concede against Yadah, our first clean sheet of the season, that tells you we are going somewhere but I know fans demand more than that,” added Mangombe.

Dembare is visiting Bikita Minerals which is walking bubbling with confidence following a 1-0 win over giants CAPS United on Thursday at Rufaro 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.
