Draws litter 2017 Group E qualifiers


It is all even in Group E of the 2017 Africa Cup qualifiers after the pool produced another draw at the end of match-day-one on Sunday in Brazzaville in the match between Congo and Kenya.

Kenya left Brazzaville with a draw after hosts Congo rallied to finish 1-1 at home.

Paul Were put Kenya ahead in the 10th minute but that lead lasted just 24 minutes after Congo equalised from the penalty spot through Prince Oniangue.

Kenya and Congo are 1st and 2nd with a better goal difference over Zambia and Guinea Bissau who drew 0-0 on Saturday in Ndola.

Zambia visit Kenya on September 6 while Guinea Bissau host Congo that same weekend.

    7. As traffic increases new roads to decongest traffic on the peripherals of towns and cities or to bypass the city must be built.
    8. When working on major roads especially dual carriage way, warnings must be posted several kilometers away (esp if temporary change to single roads) and major reflectors and partitions must be in place.
    9. Strict adherence to strict issuance of driving licenses must be observed.
    10. Implement heavy penalties.
    11. Street lights and … now PRAY!
