Dean Furman “jokingly” chided the Algerian referee in Bafana Bafana’s 1-0 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) opening defeat against Ivory Coast on Monday for being the first person to have a drink during an injury stoppage when he did not allow a first-half water breaks.

For the second Group D game running the referee did not allow a first-half water break – though Algerian referee Mustapha Ghorbal did at least allow a second-half break – in a 4.30pm kickoff Group D fixture at Cairo’s Al Salam Stadium.

The previous day Morocco coach Hervé Renard slammed Rwandan referee Louis Kakizimana for not allowing any breaks in the Atlas Lions’ sluggish 1-0 win against Namibia.

Global players’ union FifPro have raised concerns about the 4.30pm games kicking off at near 40 degrees Celsius – Sunday’s started in 38 degrees C‚ and Monday’s in 37.

Furman said Ghorbal did not allow a first-half water break.

“No. I was surprised. Because the first time there was an injury the first person to take a drink was the referee.

“And I had a joke with him because he said‚ ‘No water break’‚” the Bafana midfielder‚ arguably the hardest-working player on the field in the temperature on Monday‚ said.

“But it’s up to the referee and he decided that.

“I don’t know if the temperature was too low for a water break. But you could see from the energy of the players the guys were desperate for a bit of water.”

Also noticeable was that Ivory Coast’s players seemed to feign injuries for water breaks‚ and when they did they had a ready supply from their bench.

Bafana did not have the same service from theirs.

Furman‚ though‚ played down the effect of the heat on Monday‚ saying conditions were not much worse than Rustenburg in a mid-South Africa summer.

“It’s hot. But I would say 75 percent of us play in South Africa where we play a summer league so we play in this kind of weather every week‚” he said.

“It does alter the tempo of the game. But it is what it is. We went to Dubai specifically to get used to this. Dubai was 10 degrees hotter than this.

“It’s similar to Rustenburg‚ Polokwane‚ Thohoyandou. It’s hot. We’ve got to deal with that.

“What we’ve experienced‚ because we’ve been training at 4.30pm‚ 5pm‚ is that by the time of the second half it does cool a lot.

“And that’s the end of our 4.30 games now. We’ve got a 10pm [against Namibia on Friday]‚ and a 6pm game now [against Morocco on Monday].

“So yeah‚ we’re disappointed‚ but the conditions will suit us better in the next game‚ if they had any effect today.”

Bafana meet Namibia at Al Salam Stadium at 10pm on Friday night.

The latest member of the OluwaDolarz online comedy family, Okiki DFT recently claimed that some officers of NigeriaPolice Force carted away his customized necklace and wristwatch after they apprehended him.

Okiki dft

This comes after his fellow colleague, Funny Toheeb’s revealed his unpleasant experience in the hands of police officers as he claimed they arrested him and accused him of being a yahoo boy. Okiki saw the post and also narrated his ordeal in the comment section of the post.

In his case, he was arrested and asked to bail himself. However, he was able to reach an agreement with the officers and he was then ordered to make cash withdrawals at an ATM point.

Unfortunately, he did not realise that they had already stolen his necklace and wristwatch. They quickly zoomed off in their vehicle when he backed them to make the withdrawal at the ATM.

In his words:

“Naso in my birthday on my way to @naijaloadedcomng interview that I was already late for , I now rushed down from a school after my presentation and test and then at igboefun on the island after I was coming from my house at lekki , they double crossed me, and then my Taxify as per say we never buy car yet.

So they stopped my Taxify and then instructed that I should come down Naso me I just say wo Baba I no Dey come down make dem search what ever dem won search for inside the ride so they did and then they were taking time and then their boss got down from their van and then instructed that I should go into the van so I just said aii let me just comply with them so I don’t waste more time cuz I was already late for my interview and then they pointed their AKs at me and then I just followed them so I won’t die.

So I entered their van and then they searched my stuffs in the car and then they drove me down to national theater inside the annoying island traffic and then to cut the long story of interrogations and shii they now collected my phone my custom Okiki chain and my wristwatch and said I should go and settle them and then I said aii they should give me my stuffs they said no why that ?

And I was like ah ahhnnn !!!! Like brooo why!!! So I said aii one of them would follow me and then they said” ah ahnn no ooo you won make people Dey snap us or me Dey put for internet “ and then as we argued I just said no they should at least give me my phone and then we argued over that one too and then I later collected only the phone.

As I turned to go to the ATM and then I looked back for them they had already drove off with my chains and wristwatch and they wore bullet proof vests to cover their names and then I couldn’t capture it to remember…., we are all mad in this country !!!!!”

Triple suicide attack kills 30 in Nigeria

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (Reuters) – At least 30 people have been killed in a triple suicide attack in northeast Nigerian state of Borno, state emergency officials said on Monday, in the biggest mass killing this year by suicide bombers.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

The Boko Haram group and its Islamic State splinter group have often carried out attacks targeting civilians and the military in Borno state. Their attacks have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives and displaced millions of people.

“Yesterday around 8pm (1900 GMT) it was reported that there was a very loud explosion in (the village of) Konduga. On reaching the scene of the incident we found there was a lot of casualties. In fact the death toll was over 30 and the injured over 42,” an emergency service official told Reuters.

The military did not respond to a request for comment.

Earlier the village head, Bulama Kalli, said three suicide bombers had taken part in the attack, targeting a place where villagers had gathered to watch a soccer match on a large screen. Most of those killed have now been buried while several survivors are still in hospital in Maiguduri, Kalli said.

Boko Haram regards soccer – often watched by Nigerians while drinking beer – as un-Islamic and the ultimate demonstration of corrupting Western influence.

Konduga is located some 25km (15 miles) from Maiduguri, the state capital of Borno state.

The Nigerian government says the Boko Haram insurgency, and the rival Islamic State West Africa Province group, have been largely defeated, but they continue to launch attacks on civilian and military targets.

The decade-long insurgency has killed more than 30,000 people and displaced millions of civilians in northeast Nigeria.
