Zimbabwe upset Kenyans to lift African Sevens title


JOHANNESBURG – The Zimbabwe Cheetahs caused an upset by defeating Kenya 17-5 to lift the African Sevens Championship trophy in Monastir, Tunisia on Sunday.

It was a remarkable effort from the men from Harare who were taken to extra time in their semifinal before seeing off defending champions Uganda 24-19.

Kenya had a bit of an easier route to the final in thrashing Madagascar 36-5 in semifinal action.

The Ugandans managed to restore some pride in claiming the bronze medal with a 24-19 win over the Madagascans.

Zambia collected the plate final in outplaying hosts Tunisia 24-14.

Zimbabwe may have been unfortunate when Craig…

The cholera outbreak, first detected in a township outside the capital Harare earlier this month, prompted the government to declare an emergency in the city after at least 3,000 cases were reported.

“Although I cannot say we have contained the disease as yet, we are moving swiftly in all provinces of the country,” Health minister Obadiah Moyo told the state-owned Sunday Mail.

“We have moved into the second line of antibiotics, which is azithromycin, after the first line of antibiotics — ciprofloxacin and ceftriaxone — have become resistant to the…
