President Sirleaf Congratulates Tonga

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a message of congratulations to the government and people of the Kingdom of Tonga on the occasion marking the Kingdom’s 46th Independence Anniversary on June 4, 2016.Tonga, officially known as the Kingdom of Tonga, is a Polynesian sovereign state and archipelago comprising 169 islands of which 36 are inhabited. June 4 is celebrated annually throughout the islands of the Kingdom as its Independence Day (also known as Emancipation Day). Tonga became fully independent from Britain in 1970, but had never relinquished its sovereignty to any foreign power. In 2010, Tonga took a decisive step towards becoming a fully functioning constitutional monarchy, after legislative reforms paved the way for its first partial representative elections.According to a Foreign Ministry release, in her message to His Majesty King George Tupou VI, King of Tonga, President Sirleaf extended sincere felicitations to him and through him the people of the Kingdom of Tonga on behalf of the G=government and people of Liberia, and in her own name.As both countries strive together in furtherance of the principles of the United Nations in promoting peace, security and cooperation among all nations, President Sirleaf prayed that the Almighty God will endow King Tupou VI with wisdom and strength as he leads his compatriots to greater prosperity.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

(REOPENS DEL43)

first_imgHaving faced an abandonment in his debut match as the Cricket Association of Bengal president, former India captain Sourav Ganguly who had imported special white covers from England for the entire field did not take any chances. With rains and thundershowers lashing the field, more than 50 groundsmen stood drenched in rain to hold up the covers from being blown away so that theres no seepage on to the field. Rain played hide and seek for one hour. The moment the groundsmen removed the wicket cover, the rains again made their presence felt even as the star of the evening and Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan and classical singer Shafqat Amanat Ali were seen taking a stock of the situation with Ganguly. The Eden outfield and wicket were relaid a month before the World T20 and measures were taken to increase the sand content through coring so as as to facilitate the drainage system. Thankfully about 99 percent of the stadium was covered and the ground was completely dried up without a single wet patch. The Eden had faced a washout in its last international match, also a T20 International, when Ganguly was CAB president-designate and had come for a lot of criticism for poor management. The third and final T20 International between India and South Africa for the Paytm Trophy was abandoned on October 8 last year as the little rain in the day had exposed the iconic Eden Gardens poor drainage system. The CAB had struggled then with the covers as water had seeped into the field and the game had to be called off even as the rain had stopped. PTI TAP PDS PDSadvertisementlast_img read more
