Western Bureau:A second-year medical student from Kenya and a Jamaica public service employee took top honours in the second running of the Black River 5K Run/Walk race on Sunday.Edgar Muganzi strolled away with the top male award after crossing the finish line in 18 minutes 30.18 seconds, while the top female prize went to Juliet Reeves, who stopped the clock in a respectable 27:49.26.Muganzi said after his race that he was delighted to have finished first in his inaugural attempt.”This was a beautiful course. I had no problems with it, and I am very happy to win here,” he said.”I am just so happy to perform and add my part in raising funds for the treatment of cancer,” Muganzi added.Eighty-seven runners and walkers took part in the event, an almost 50 per cent increase in registration over last year, and a pleased David Morris, president of the Black River chapter of the St Elizabeth Chamber of Commerce, stated as much.”I am of the impression that this was a great event, but we put in a real effort to get the word out, and it’s definitely much improved from last year. It’s a growing event that we are proud to be part of,” Morris said.Part proceeds from the event will go towards assisting the Black River branch of the Jamaica Cancer Society.Muganzi was chased across the line by Marcell Stewart in 18:57.65, while Anthony Danvern was third.In the women’s section, first-time entrant Reeves of Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland, won ahead of Elinor Daniel, 28:15.04, and Kadian Myers, 36:08.08.Carl Barrett took care of business in the men’s walk, posting 37:16.39. Jon Pierre Cavannah was second with Anthony Graham in third.Cecile Barrett was the female walk winner, with Marsha Alexander taking second, just in front of Janette Kaloo.
A RAPIST who subjected a 64-year-old woman to a sickening attack and is now on the run from the North has grown his hair and a beard in a effort to disguise his identity.Joseph McCabe, pictured in this PSNI photograph, has ‘completely changed’ his image.The warning was issued by local people in Burtonport and Dungloe where McCabe has been living for the past two weeks. However Donegal Daily can reveal that McCabe was in Glenties on Sunday and was stopped by gardai in Letterkenny last week.On the latter occasion gardai carried out a drugs search of the black audi car he was driving.He was with another wanted man – 18-year-old Casey Morgan – on both occasions.The PSNI have warned that both men should not be approached. McCabe was released from prison in the North earlier this year after serving seven years of a 14-year sentence for rape.He was released under license, meaning he had to register with police and sign the sex offenders register.He was given bail in the district court in Sligo last Saturday and has been told he must stay at an address in Dungloe.However he has been seen in the company of a number of well-known Dublin criminals.Friends from Belfast have also travelled to Donegal to stay with him as local people form themselves into small groups to patrol the area. “Tensions are running high because people are frightened,” said one local man who has attended several meetings on McCabe and Morgan.“The meetings did not involve gardai; they involved ordinary people who won’t sit back and allow these thugs to terrorise our communities.”His friend added: “People should be aware that he has changed his image from the official police picture of him.“His hair is black and he has grown this; he has also grown a goatie-style beard.” Under the terms of his bail McCabe is free to travel throughout Co Donegal, but must sign on at a Garda station once per day.It’s understood the PSNI are drawing up an arrest warrant to have him extradited back to Northern Ireland.RAPIST GROWS HAIR AND BEARD, SEEN IN GLENTIES AND LETTERKENNY was last modified: May 7th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:burtonportdungloejoseph mccabeRAPIST GROWS HAIR AND BEARDSEEN IN GLENTIES AND LETTERKENNY
