Sports minister Chishimba Kambwili yesterday accosted Ethiopian match officials that officiated the Nkana versus Etoile du Sahel CAF Confederation Cup match calling them “stupid” and lecturing them how to handle matches.

Weyesa handed Etoile an early and late penalty at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe as the Zambian side sailed to their first Group B win in the CAF Confederation Cup.

At the final whistle, Kamwbili left his seat and headed for Weyesa who was being shielded from the Zambian minister by a heavy presence of Zambian state police but failed to escape Nkana fans who showered him with beer and missiles as he headed into the tunnel.

He specifically cited the recent clashes between government forces over control of Upper Nile's key town of Nasir, alleging that rebels wounded in the battle found their way to Gambella town for medical aid.

"More than 54 wounded rebels are being treated in Gambella right now", claimed Buay in a statement.

He urged the Ethiopian government to respect the border security agreement signed with Juba in 2010, and keep wounded rebels out of their territory.

The Tendaho Dam built to irrigate sugar cane for Tendaho Sugar Factory can now fully supply the water required, according to Water Works Design and Control Enterprise.   

Some 98 percent of the construction of the dam that holds 1.86 billion cubic meters of water is finalized, it said.

The dam has the capacity to develop over 60,000 hectares of land and provide pasture land and farm land for the community in the neighbourhood.

Out of the 60,000 hectares of land planned to be cultivated, 10,000 will be allotted for social services, and 4,022 hectares of this is already given to members of the community, it was learned.
 
The remaining 50,000 hectares would be used to cultivate sugar cane for the sugar factory.

The construction of the dam was delayed as the locality is susceptible to earthquake.
