Salahadin sustain a serious knee injury during a CECAFA match between Ethiopia and Burundi some weeks ago.

    “During the injury, I felt a very painful feeling but I tried to continue and finish that game,” Salahadin told St. George’s Lisane Giorgis paper. “So, I was forced to withdraw from the game later on.”

    The star player said the medical attention he received in Ethiopia couldn’t improve his condition so he travelled to Germany and has successfully recovered well after a one week stay in Europe. He said he hopes to return to the game after attending a few more medical sessions with local doctors.

    “I have a received a video- assisted medical treatment in Germany. I know that knee surgery is dangerous for players and I was alarmed by it at first. But now I’m feeling good. I hope to return back to the pitch very soon,” he said.

  • A Women and Child in Australian Diagnosed with Zika Virus

    Two people – including a child – have tested positive for Zika in Queensland as authorities around the world scramble to deal with the threat posed by the virus. TA Women and Child in Australian Diagnosed with Zika Virushe child was diagnosed after presenting to a Brisbane hospital with symptoms following a family trip to Samoa. It was the second case confirmed within 24 hours, with a woman diagnosed with Zika on the Gold Coast after returning from El Salvador in Central America where the virus is spreading.

    Queensland chief health officer Dr Jeanette Young said southeast Queensland was not at risk of Zika, despite two cases being confirmed in the region. This is because the virus is predominantly transmitted to humans through the bites of infectious Aedes mosquitoes, most commonly Aedes aegypti, the same species that transmits dengue in north Queensland. The two people infected have not travelled to north Queensland. “I’m very confident that the two people we’ve just confirmed ... are no risk to anyone,” Young said. Health minister Cameron Dick said the cases showed the state’s Zika detection systems were working and it was likely more Queenslanders would be infected.

  • Meet the Five Super Fan of Super Bowl Since 1967

    This weekend will see the 5Meet the Five Super Fan of Super Bowl Since 19670th Super Bowl take place in San Francisco, but it will also see the 50th anniversary of a tradition that began in 1967 among a group of five friends who have attended the sporting event every single year for nearly 50 years. The five men - Sylvan Schefler, Lew Rappaport, Al Schragis, Larry McDonald, and Harvey Rothenberg who range in age from their late 70s to early 80s, began their annual tradition when the Super Bowl wasn't even called that; back in 1967, it was simply known as the AFL-NFL World Championship Game. That inaugural game, between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs, is now known as Super Bowl I, and it marked the start of a long tradition that has spanned nearly half a century.

    In 1967, the five flew to Los Angeles to buy their tickets for the game, which retailed for just $10, and when they arrived at the stadium, it was less than half full. As for the game itself, Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in front of 61,946 fans, and the furiously-fought sporting competition was enough to draw them in as fans for life. Although the group admit that they never set out to keep up the tradition for so long, they are eager to keep enjoying it for as long as possible.

  • Fears mount over Ethiopia’s overlooked drought

    Ethiopia’s government has mitigated much of the fallout of the country's worst drought for decades — but on closer inspection the situation on the ground remains precarious. Cattle plod down a dusty hillside to a small reservoir behind a stone dam before dipping heads in unison to quench their thirst. Shortly after, a herd of goats shepherded by a young girl joins them outside the small village of Mawo in the arid Afar region of northeast Ethiopia.

    “Before the dam we had no access to water and had to take cattle far away into the hills to try find rivers,” Hussein Esmael, a member of the local militia, said of the Fears mount over Ethiopia’s overlooked drought dam built with foreign funds. “Now it’s needed more than ever as animals don’t have the strength to go long distances to find water.” Ethiopia’s current drought may be the worst the country has seen in 50 years, according to some estimates. But, so far, there are no scenes reminiscent of 1984, when drought contributed to more than a million Ethiopians dying.

    The problem with comparing any drought to the devastating 1984 disaster is that it risks misinterpreting different circumstances, while hampering an effective analysis and reaction. Certainly the response by the Ethiopian government this time constitutes a partial success story. But the reaction of the international community – or lack thereof – represents a partial failure, one that still runs the risk of plunging this drought-prone African nation into yet another disaster.
