Chan 2016: 4-goal Thriller Defines Tunisia, Guinea Clash

Uganda Police Force spokesperson, seek Fred Enanga has dismissed allegations that one of their own, cure Gilbert Arinaitwe is mentally ill and has been admitted to Butabika hospital.

While addressing the media at the Police headquarters in Naguru, Enanga attributed the rumor to a group loyal to FDC presidential candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye.

“These allegations have been made against him since he was involved in arresting Dr. Kizza Besigye during the ‘Walk to Work’ protests; it is clear that the case was discarded by the government prosecutor since it was ruled that Besigye had defied the traffic laws by parking his car in the middle of the road,” Enanga explained.

“There is a group of people that has been tarnishing his name after discovering that he had family conflicts; the group first alleged that he was taken to Masindi hospital and later admitted in Butabika hospital.”

“All this information is false and aimed at tarnishing the image of the police; we want to inform the public that it’s better to approach Arinaitwe before publishing any falsehoods against him.”

“We have advised him through his lawyers to launch a case against those people; it’s these people that will present evidence of him being admitted to Butabika.”

Meanwhile, the Police mouthpiece condemned attacks on police officers on duty in several parts of the country.

“Here in Kampala, four of our officers were attacked by unknown gangsters and during the attack, a one Corporal Muzamil Masaaba was killed and two guns were taken.”


“We condemn such acts against security officers whose work is sacrificial and aimed at ensuring peace within the country.”
A brace apiece from Ahmed Akaichi and Alseny Camara Agogo ensured fans at the Nyamirambo stadium in Kigali got off to an explosive entertaining CHAN 2016 show as Tunisia and Guinea drew even in the opening group C game with a four-goal thriller.

Ahmed Akaichi wowed the crowd with a stunning back heel from Hamza Mathlouthi’s low cross from the right wing for the opener in the 33rd minute.

Tunisia nearly doubled the lead a minute later after a defensive lapse in Guinea’s goal area left goalkeeper Aziz Keita on a one-on-one situation with Akaichi.

The Tunisian dangerman struck passed the keeper only to be denied by the crossbar.

The Syli Nationale who is just making a debut in the continental second biggest showpiece maintained the pressure on the Carthage Eagles even with a goal down.

They were forced to make an early change in the 35th minute bringing in Mohamed Youla for Ibrahima Conde who was injured.

The setback didn’t affect their attacking plan as they pulled level five minutes to the break through Alseny Camara Agogo after Tunisia’s Zied Derbali failed to decode a well co-ordinated telepathic movement from the left flank.

Second half

Akaichi restored the lead for the Carthage Eagles six minutes into the second half getting at the end of a typical North African counter attack before beating the keeper on his near angle.

Tunisia nearly put the game beyond reach for the West Africans but Zied Derbali’s header was again denied by the crossbar with clock ticking down.

Guinea made a surge two minutes later (in the 83rd minute) Alseny Camara on the score sheet again from Jean Mouste’s volley.
