Cape Town — Springbok Women’s coach Stanley Raubenheimer retained the combinations that made a strong statement against Uganda for their second Women’s Rugby World Cup Qualifier against Madagascar on Tuesday, naming an identical starting team.

The only changes to Raubenheimer’s squad that defeated Uganda 89-5 were on the bench, where Mathrin Simmers (scrumhalf), Nomsa Mokwai (flanker) and Nqobile Mhlangu (winger) have been drafted in. They replace Felicia Jacobs, Karthy Dludla and Vuyolwethu Maqolo respectively.

Should Mokwai and Mhlangu take to the field, they will make their Springbok Women’s debuts.

The match, which will play out at the Bosman Stadium in Brakpan, will kick off at 15:00, while Kenya take on Uganda in the earlier match at 13:00.

Both matches will be live streamed HERE.

“It is good to be able to select the same team,” said Raubenheimer.

“Hopefully by maintaining consistency and having the team playing together for the second time, we will be able to deliver and even better performance.”

Raubenheimer singled out better accuracy as something they would like to improve on, saying: “I would like to see us execute our structures better in general, while also improving our decision-making and keeping our foot on the pedal, so that we can keep on choking the opposition until the end. We had a chat about that, so hopefully our accuracy will improve.”

The Springbok Women’s coach expected Madagascar to launch a strong challenge against his charges and said: “All the participating teams are similar in the sense that they fight until the end and never give up. So we will have be at our best to ensure that we can contain them and make things tough for them if possible.”

The Springbok Women will face Kenya in their final match of the tournament on Saturday, with Madagascar taking on Uganda.The team at the top of the table at the end of the competition will book their place in the 2021 Women’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

Madagascar: Hostility Returns to Haunt Madagascar’s Problematic Prisons

Published

on

Antananarivo — THE violent incident between detainees and prison guards at a prison east of Madagascar has brought to the fore the country’s inept justice system and public security problems.

Hell recently broke loose at the Ambalatavoahangy prison in the city of Toamasina when a mutiny by inmates saw a prison warder held hostage.

It is believed the commotion followed the discovery of an illicit drug, thought to be cannabis, in the cells.

However, human rights groups argue the root of the problem is the overcrowding in the Southern African country’s prisons.

“The fact that more than 55 percent of the country’s prison population is still awaiting trial is a glaring example of how broken the criminal justice system is,” said, Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s Director for Southern Africa.

According to World Prison Brief, Madagascar has about 25 000 prisoners. The official capacity of the prison system is put at 10 600. In view of that, the occupancy level is over 237 percent.

Amnesty International has previously warned that the unjustified and excessive use of pre-trial detention was keeping thousands of people in life-threatening prison conditions.

The group is advocating for the release all pre-trial detainees whose detentions are unjustified, arbitrary or prolonged – including those held for petty offences.

“The authorities must also provide reparations to victims of unlawful pretrial detention and take steps to build an effective criminal justice system that respects human rights,” Muchena stated.

Some 129 prisoners reportedly died in Madagascar’s prisons in 2017. Fifty-two of them were awaiting trial.

Prime Minister Christian Ntsay denounced the overcrowding, prolonged pretrial detention and other violations of human rights in the country’s prisons.

The reform of the justice system and increasing security are seen as a priority for the administration of President Andry Nirina Rajoelina, in power since January 2019.

The Indian Ocean island country has suffered a series of prison breaks over the last decade.

In 2017, some 120 prisoners broke out of jail in northeast Ikongo prison after a lynch mob stormed the facility in search of a murder suspect.

Twenty-two inmates escaped the Tsiafahy prison outside the capital Antananarivo in 2009.

It is the same year seven prisoners fled the Ambalatavoahangy prison and eleven others escaped the Betroka jail also outside the capital city.
