    Abductions, domitable lions, a derby[/h]August 18, 2011

    By Gary Al-Smith
    (Archive)This week's Africa Report visits the fabled Dar es Salaam derby played out in Tanzania on Wednesday night, as well the unfortunate abduction of the father of John Mikel Obi. And also, could the real reason Alex Song stamped Joey Barton be found back home?

    Derby in Tanzania It is not only England that loves to apply the cliché 'curtain raiser' to the Community Shield. There are several equivalents in Africa. Late Wednesday night saw a huge game played out in Dar es Salaam. It was the Charity Shield, an annual contest played ostensibly so a large portion of the proceeds can be donated to the needy. Everyone knows it's just a chance to get cash for the football clubs.
    The 60,000-seater national stadium was filled before kick-off and, as has been the norm before big games since it was finished in 2007, the $53 million dollar Chinese-built facility saw the country's president in attendance. His presence was viewed with suspicion by one set of fans. The two competing teams were Yanga and Simba, the biggest teams in Tanzania. Although never substantiated, Jakaya Kikwete, and the ruling CCM party, is rumoured to be pro-Yanga.
    This would be the fourth time the two have met this year - twice in the Premier League and once in the Kagame Cup East African Cup final before this encounter. Funny preparation always characterises a meeting between these two old foes, who have won 35 league titles between them. Known as the 'Dar es Salaam Derby', this game sees both sides train at different venues from the usual. They take different routes to the stadium in a game of cat-and-mouse. The outcome is usually the same: feisty and passionate. Added to that, Tanzania Breweries Limited threw in 5 billion Tanzanian shillings ($3 million) only last week. The temperature of this game changed considerably after that.
    The game kicked off at 8pm local time with a pan-African flavour. Simba fielded two Ugandans and a Kenyan. Yanga started a Zambian, a Ghanaian and a Ugandan. Simba, smarting from losing this year's league by one goal after finishing level on points, raced into a two-goal lead which crushed the morale of their rivals. Simba's Haruna Moshi, known as Boban for his combative style, ran the show and continued his great form. The game ended 2-0.
