The feud between different royal structures in Venda seems to be spreading and this case is one of several that are now being contested in the courts. On 28 December last year, the Makanga Royal Family and the Mafunzwaini Royal Family, together with two headmen, Muthuhathonwi Edison Nemakanga and Edzisani Phineas Mafunzwaini, approached the High Court. They asked that an interim interdict be granted to stop the installation of two new chiefs. In the afﬁdavits ﬁled in court, the parties argue that Thovhele Kennedy Tshivhase is continuing with plans to elevate two headmen, Jerry Tshivhase and Gumani Samson Ramulongo, to the status of Thovhele. This would mean they have jurisdiction over Headman Nemakanga and Headman Mafunzwaini’s areas. The installation event was, according to the court documents, planned for 29 December. In Muthuhathonwi Edison Nemakanga’s afﬁdavit, he describes how they were informed of the decision of Kennedy Tshivhase by two “messengers” on 24 December 2012. Both Nemakanga and Mafunzwaini were against the elevation of a fellow headman to that of chief. They described Headman Jerry Tshivhase as a troublemaker and accused him of deliberately violating their boundaries in the past and carrying out activities in other headmen’s areas. Their pleas to Thovhele Kennedy Tshivhase to intervene and act against the irregular behaviour apparently fell on deaf ears. The two royal families discussed the matter and decided that they had no other option than to put up a legal ﬁght to stop the actions. From the court documents ﬁled it appears that the Department of Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs was also not informed about the planned installation of new chiefs. In a letter sent to the two headmen, dated 27 December, the department distances itself from the actions and states that the proposed installation is not in terms of the Limpopo Traditional Leadership and Institutions Act. It further seems that the elevation of the status of the headmen may have had a price tag attached to it. In a conﬁrmatory afﬁdavit ﬁled, Langanani Jackson Mafunzwaini describes how he tried to resolve the matter by speaking to the parties involved. He alleges that he had a telephone conversation with headman Gumani Samson Ramulongo on 25 December, asking him to reject the proposed appointment as “deputy Thovhele”. “… he responded by informing me that he would not, as he had already paid an amount of R30 000,” Mafunzwaini states in his afﬁdavit. Thovhele Kennedy Tshivhase has been the subject of some controversy in the past months. - Continues on page 2 Court halts installing of two chiefs Mbilwi does it again!

In Nemakanga’s affidavit, he alleges that Thovhele Kennedy Tshivhase even ignored the advice of a delegation from the House of Traditional Leaders to stop appointing chiefs. Incidents of violence have been reported in Tshisahulu and Maungani villages where Tshivhase was going to install new chiefs. Approached for comment, Mailausumbwa Kennedy Tshivhase (as he is now being called) said the interdict was irrelevant as they were not replacing the existing chiefs. He said some traditional leaders felt threatened and thought that they were being demoted when they heard of new chiefs being installed. "There is no threat to the existing chiefs. We are just strengthening the Tshivhase kingdom for the sake of good governance and efficient service delivery. There is no sinister motive behind the installations," said Tshivhase. He also denied that he was charging people an amount of R30 000 for them to be chiefs. "Chieftainship is not a profession and cannot be bought. As traditional leaders, we do not have to wait for government to tell us to install chiefs. We know whom to install and we will continue doing so until we reach our target," he said. The parties will be in court again on 12 February, when judge PZ Ebersohn will have to decide on whether the interdict should become a final order. The respondents must file their answering affidavits before the end of January. Court news Some of Vhembe’s achievers Nduvhu Munyai of Mbilwi Secondary got seven distinctions. Mr Ndivhuwo Mamuremi of Tsianda village and Ms Tshifhiwa Maimela of Tshakhuma said “Yes, I do” during a glittering ceremony at the Thohoyandou Town Hall last Saturday. Court news Jiwa still not sentenced The sentencing of businessman Yahya Shoeb Jiwa of Makhado (Louis Trichardt) has been postponed yet again. The 45-year-old Jiwa appeared in the Musina Regional Court on Wednesday. He had already pleaded guilty in July last year on charges relating to restricted activities on a special protected species without the necessary permits. Jiwa was arrested in February 2011 when he tried to buy rhino horns from an undercover police agent. Since pleading guilty, Jiwa has been awaiting his sentencing. Instead, his defense team has asked for yet another postponement. They requested a pre-sentencing report to be compiled by the Department of Correctional Services to support a petition to ask the court for correctional supervision of Jiwa rather than a jail sentence. This report was not complete and could not be handed in as evidence on Wednesday. Jiwa’s lawyer confirmed that the report will be ready by 18 January, when it will be handed to the magistrate. Jiwa will then have to appear in court again for sentencing on 15 April. Man (53) in custody for rape of minor A 53-year-old male suspect was arrested in connection with a case of rape, which allegedly happened over the weekend at Musina. It is alleged that a 16-year-old minor girl was with her cousin when the suspect allegedly called her to come and assist him with cooking at around 16:30. The victim agreed and went into the suspect’s house, where she cooked a supper for him. The suspect told her that she should feel welcome and watch some movies on the TV set, if she had an interest in doing so. Therefore, she sat in the room and watched movies until it was late, about 02:00. When she told the suspect that she was leaving, he advised her not to go because it was late already. According to the spokesperson for the Musina police, Lt Peter Mudau, the suspect then gave her a blanket to sleep on the floor. While she was fast asleep, he lifted her onto the bed and allegedly raped her. “According to the information we have so far gathered, the victim was threatened not to disclose the information to anyone,” said Mudau. “The suspect promised to buy the victim anything she wanted if she kept it a secret. However, she reported the matter to the police and we arrested a male suspect of 53 years of age.” The suspect is detained in the cells, pending his first court appearance.

LIMPOPO MIRROR By Kaizer Nengovhela Court news 11 January 2013 3 Several tombstones vandalised Members of the Bungeni Shitaci community were in shock after they were informed that more than 70 tombstones were vandalised by unknown people in their graveyard on New Year’s Day. Mr David Mdaka said when he visited the graveyard he found many of his relatives’ tombstones had been vandalized. "We spent a lot of money to erect the tombstone, because we want our beloved deceased to rest in peace. I want the police to bring the culprits to book, because many villagers use their last money to erect the tombstones," said Mdaka. He added that they had resolved to put everything in the hands of the police to investigate, with the hope that the truth will come out. Police spokesperson W/O Kedibone Mabatha said the community had opened a case of malicious damage to property. He said that people who were doing “these barbaric deeds” came from the community and he appealed to villagers to report any crime or wrongdoing to the police. He discouraged community members, however, from taking the law into their own hands and appealed to those who knew something to report it. He emphasised that community members have to work hand in hand with the police in order to bring the culprits to book. He also appealed to the community to assist the police with the investigation. He said the police would do everything in their power to make sure crime ceased to exist in the community. Hepworths Juko Moses charged with murder The 26-year-old resident from Uganda, Juko Moses, who is suspected of running an illegal abortion clinic in the back alleys of Makhado (Louis Trichardt), has now been charged with murder. Moses was arrested in July 2011 after a 29-yearold woman, who wanted to terminate her fivemonth pregnancy, had put the police on Moses’s trail. At first he was charged with the illegal termination of a pregnancy. This charge was changed to murder when Moses appeared in the Louis Trichardt Regional Court on Monday. The woman, who cannot be identified without her informed consent, responded to one of the many illegal abortion advertisements that are plastered all over town. She allegedly paid R1 000 for five Cytotex tablets, which are used to terminate pregnancies. Her baby died as a result of major complications caused by her taking the Cytotex tablets. According to information supplied, the State feels that it has enough evidence to prove a case of murder against Moses. In the meantime, Moses has been in custody since September last year. His case had to be postponed on Monday, due to the fact that he had failed to pay his attorney. He will remain in custody until 14 January, when his case is Juko Moses. expected to continue.

He achieved 96% in life sciences, 93% in physical science and mathematics, 89% in life orientation and 86% in English. In his other subjects, he did not do badly either, with 79% for Agricultural Sciences and 78% for Tshivenda. Andani ascribes his success to hard work, passion and dedication. “I had to burn the candle at both ends to achieve this,” says an exuberant Andani. This young achiever says that he was greatly motivated by people around him. All those people had expectations that Andani would perform well and become a torch bearer for his village. “Once you have taken position one, you must know that you have got to maintain it,” he enthuses. “Friends and relatives expected my name to appear among the top achievers in the province or even at national level. But I am satisfied with what I managed to achieve.” He adds that learning does not end in using the prescribed books only, because doing that might somehow limit the scope of a student’s understanding and impinge on the quality of his work. “I understand that every single text book lacks some content in one aspect or another,” he speaks. ���So I had to use lots of study guides and extra books.” Mr Rocky Thomas, principal at Comprehensive Trinity Academy, said Andani was a hard worker but also attributed the commitment and dedication of the teachers to Andani’s achievement. Meanwhile, the Minister of Basic Education, Mrs Angie Motshekga, congratulated all matric students who had excelled. “The world is your oyster,” she said. “Go out there and realise your dreams. This country needs you. To those who did not perform as expected, do not lose heart. We all learn from trial and error.” According to the Department of Education, Limpopo achieved 66.9% in 2012, a quite noticeable improvement from 63.9% of 2011. Andani is going to study actuarial science at the University of Cape Town. High achiever Mandilakhe Maphaha is being hugged by the happy principal of the school, Mr Cedric Lidzhade, while other top achievers share the excitement. By Elmon Tshikhudo Mbilwi Secondary continues to shine One of the country’s top performing schools, Mbilwi Secondary School in Vhembe, which has been producing excellent and quality results for years, continues to shine. The school, which has been producing a 100% pass rate for more than ten years, and has been the first school to join the elite clubs of higher achievers in maths and science, attained the best 2012 Grade 12 results in Limpopo. Out of the total number of those who wrote, 325 obtained university exemption, 93 obtained senior certificates without exemption, while three pupils did not pass, giving the school a 99,3% pass rate. The school attained 715 distinctions in different subjects, crowded, with some classes even having 70 pupils, which made it difficult to give them personal attention, but we soldiered on and achieved the best,” said Lidzhade, who was oozing with confidence. He said they worked as a family, with a lot of attention given to pupils and advising them on their personal lives. “We are parents here at school. Some of our pupils sometimes get lost and we call them to order. We are very proud to say that some of those we helped managed to get many distinctions and made the school very proud,” said Lidzhade. He was also quick to dispel the rumour that only the best pupils are admitted at the school, which supposedly gives them an advantage over the other schools when it comes to quality results. “The selection tests were done away with a long time ago. We give all pupils an equal chance, and we OPPORTUNITIES ARE BECOMING MORE VERTICAL. admit them on a firstcome-first-served basis, where everyone has a chance to study here.

When Limpopo Mirror visited the school early this week, it was back to work for teachers, who were fresh from the school holidays, and excited pupils collecting their results. In an interview, the principal, Mr Cedric Lidzhade, who is also a former pupil of the school, pointed out that the school was no different from other schools but had a secret menu which made them high achievers. “Last year, we had a record 421 pupils who wrote the examinations, a number which other schools cannot cope with.

During a meeting held in a bus at the Thohoyandou Bus Rank, more than 40 drivers and general workers elected a committee that will represent them. According to the spokesperson of the organisation, Mr Richard Muofhe, workers in the sector were not united and could not voice their concerns to the employer in unity. “We have been faced with many challenges for a long time, with no one to present our case to the employer. We decided to form a structure that would represent our needs at the workplace. As drivers, we are not even covered for funerals and our families have to struggle in cases of our members dying,” he added He said many of their members were even forced to drive unroadworthy buses which were not only a danger to themselves, but also to the commuters. “We do not have the power to say no, as it would mean instant dismissal.”He said the employers did not see them as part of the business but only saw money in them. Even the language used by the employer was abusive, fit for small children. According to him, they are in constant talks with the employer and hope that the new organisation will improve the relations between them.

In September last year, the newspaper was prohibited from writing about the feud between a local building contractor and one of his customers. Magistrate BVM Bvuma ruled in December that the gagging order should not be made permanent. He refused the request of Robert Mulaudzi, the applicant, and stated that pre-publication interdicts could not be entertained by the court. The legal battle started on 24 September last year when court papers were served on the editor of the Limpopo Mirror. It then materialised that a building contractor from the Vuwani area, Robert Mulaudzi, had instructed his lawyer to obtain an interim court order forcing the paper not to write about a dispute between him and a client, Mrs Azwitamisi Minah Mutheyiwana. The dispute concerns a house that Mulaudzi had renovated for the Mutheyiwana family. He claims they did not make payments as they were supposed to, whereas they claim that he didn’t deliver on his promises. The family contacted one of the Mirror’s reporters and asked him to investigate the matter. Instead of commenting on the allegations and trusting the newspaper to write a balanced report, Mr Mulaudzi approached the Vuwani Magistrate’s Court. In the absence of any of the defendants, he managed to obtain an interim court interdict, prohibiting the newspaper from disclosing any details about the feud. The gagging order stated that the newspaper could not publish “any article about the applicant and/or his business, which publication may have the current or long-term potential to adversely impact on (the applicant) or his business.” The Limpopo Mirror opted to challenge the gagging order, but did so without any legal representatives in court. On October 30 last year, Anton van Zyl, manager of Limpopo Mirror, argued in court that the interim order was obtained in an irregular manner. The newspaper was never given the opportunity to oppose the application. He also argued that a permanent interdict, such as requested, would lead to a ludicrous situation where the Limpopo Mirror would, in perpetuity, be barred from writing anything that is perceived to be negative about the applicant, irrespective of the applicant’s actions. “Newspapers play an important role in disseminating information … and also need to play a watchdog role should there be transgressions,” he said and made reference to various laws that protect consumers. “Should the applicant not abide by any such legislation, consumers must feel free to complain about this and the press should not be afraid to write about it,” he argued. Mulaudzi’s lawyer, TA Netshinombelo, argued that publication of such articles would tarnish his client’s good reputation and would also affect his business. “No publication has a licence to publish malicious rumours and/or personal vendetta(s) against a person … particularly if the motive of publication is pressure from the first respondent,” the court heard. The first respondent in the case is a family member of Mrs Mutheyiwana, a certain Mr Joseph Mulaudzi. Joseph Mulaudzi contacted the newspaper and asked that the reporter investigate what was happening. Joseph was also being accused of sending threatening SMSes to Robert Mulaudzi (the applicant in the case). Magistrate Bvuma eventually made a ruling on 14 December last year. He referred to the rights of the applicant in the case and said Mr Robert Mulaudzi had been within his rights when he approached the court to try and protect his good name and his business. He referred to cases where the courts had ruled that people did not have to wait for the actual damage to happen, but should try and stop such action. He felt, however, that Mr Mulaudzi had had other remedies available and should not expect the court to issue pre-publication interdicts for protection. Magistrate Bvuma referred to the fact that the Limpopo Mirror subscribes to the Press Ombudsman’s Code of Conduct and stated that Mr Mulaudzi was at liberty to approach this body and complain about any perceived biased reporting. The Limpopo Mirror was assisted in this case by Willem de Klerk, an attorney specialising in media law. He was delighted with the outcome of the case and described it as a victory for press freedom in South Africa. Van Zyl said that this was part of an escalating problem where the freedom of expression was being suppressed by litigation. “People should not be afraid to ask courts to protect their individual rights, but these rights should be weighed up against the rights of the broader public,” he said. “The media should be held accountable and should act in a responsible manner,” he said but urged readers to trust the newspaper to report in a fair and unbiased manner. “If we do not live up to the expectations, readers should rather approach the relevant industry bodies, such as the Press Ombudsman,” he said. The services of the Press Ombudsman are free of charge, whereas civil court cases can end up costing hundreds of thousands of rands. Mr Nkhumiseni Mulaudzi of Vyeboom and his long-time sweetheart, Mukundwa Luvhengo of Gondeni village, tied the knot during a ceremony at the Thohoyandou Technical High School hall on Saturday, December 22. Notice Sale of immature avocados prohibited The sale of immature avocados (which will not ripen properly) is now prohibited in terms of the Agricultural Product Standards Act. According to a media release by the South African Avocado Growers’ Association, inspectors from the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) will be testing maturity levels of early season avocados offered for sale. If avocados are found to be immature, the sale of this fruit will be prohibited. In the past, avocados found by inspectors to be immature were downgraded to “lowest grade”, but could still be sold. However, in 2013, immature fruit will have to be destroyed. Avocado growers are advised to ensure that their fruit meets the required maturity standard before picking. For the cultivar Fuerte, fruit moisture content must be 80% or less. Reputable avocado pack houses are all able to carry out the necessary maturity testing. DAFF inspectors will be checking avocado maturity on the National Fresh Produce Markets. Growers should be sure that their avocados are properly mature before harvesting to ensure that they do not run the risk of having their fruit destroyed. For further information on maturity testing, contact the Subtropical Growers Association (Subtrop), Tel 015 307 3676. The house that caused all the trouble ... Mrs Azwitamisi Minah Mutheyiwana and her son, Sehafhi TakalaniMudau, pictured next to the unfinished house that led to the dispute. Mrs Mutheyiwana claimed that she had paid the contractor, Robert Mulaudzi, R87 000 and was left with an unfinished house. Mr Robert Mulaudzi claimed that the family did not abide by the contract agreement and failed to pay him what was agreed. He notified them timeously of the breach of agreement and, in the end, had no other option than to stop the construction work.

By Mashudu Netsianda Cattle thief to spend 36 years in jail An 80-year-old Beit Bridge resident, who stole 72 cattle to the value of R360 000, was sentenced to an effective 36 years in jail. The case was finalised shortly before the festive season 2012. The cattle belonged to local villagers. The animals were stolen while they were grazing at Dodieburn Ranch. The suspect, Makhalima, was arrested during a recent anti-stock theft operation at Zezani village outside Beit Bridge. During the operation, the police recovered more than 100 stolen cattle. Daniel Makhalima of Ngoma village pleaded not guilty to four counts of stock theft, but was convicted by local magistrate Ms Gwineth Drawo. He was sentenced to nine years for each of the four counts, bringing to 36 the total number of years he will spend in jail. Makhalima’s 14-year-old son, who faced the same charges, was acquitted, due to the failure by the State to link the boy to the offence. The prosecutor, Mr Jabulani Mberesi, said that between August last year and 1 March this year, Moyo and his son teamed up with Polite Ndlovu, Witness Moyo and Tshengu Moyo. They then went to Dodieburn Ranch outside Beit Bridge, where they spotted the complainants’ cattle grazing. The court heard that Moyo and his accomplices drove the animals to their homesteads in Ngoma where they penned them. They dehorned the animals and tampered with the brand marks. Acting on a tip-off, police descended on the Makhalima’s homestead and arrested him, leading to the discovery of nine of the stolen cattle, to the value of R45 000. Some of the animals were found penned at Makhalima’s kraal while others were kept at his field.

During the event, a member of the co-operative and the mother of seven children, Ms Phatutshedzo Mulungufhala (30), could not believe it when she received a five-roomed house, built by South African Women in Construction (SAWIC) in Limpopo. Speaking during the ceremony, the Deputy Minister of Women, Children and People with Disabilities, Hendrietta BogopaneZulu, said it was important to equip people with skills in order for them to take care of themselves. “Women of Gombani and surrounding communities cannot afford to be perpetual beggars,” she added. The Gombani Bricks Primary Co-operative is the brainchild of Bogopane-Zulu and was spearheaded by her almost a year ago when she was still the Deputy Minister of Public Works. “Looking back when I first visited Gombani village, almost a year ago, there was no electricity or a proper road, but now all that is in the past. The village now has electricity, toilets, new RDP houses and better roads,” she added. Bogopane-Zulu also announced that 24 new RDP houses are to be built in Gombani village early next year. She urged contractors to purchase bricks manufactured by the co-operatives, so that the project could receive a direct cash injection. MTN Group Pty Limited’s Chief of Corporate Services Officer, Mr Robert Madzonga, said the MTN Group decided to help the marginalised rural communities. He said Gombani was a small rural village and should be developed. Gombani Brick Primary Cooperative group leader Ms Livhuwani Tshikosi said members of the group used to worry how Christmas and the New Year would look without money, “but now we will be able to put food on the table for our families.” Meandering queues of cars, stretching for about 5km, on the road leading to the Beit Bridge border post were seen waiting for customs and immigration clearances on Friday. By Mashudu Netsianda Huge traffic chaos at border post There was chaos at Beit Bridge Border Post between last Friday and Monday this week, resulting in a disruption in the smooth flow of traffic in the border town, following a sharp increase in the volume of traffic passing through the port of entry into South Africa. Limpopo Mirror observed long winding queues of both heavy and light vehicles. Mostly South African-registered cars and buses lined up on the road leading to Beit Bridge border post on the Zimbabwean side and stretched for about 10km. Police, immigration officers and new Limpopo Bridge Company workers had a torrid time as they controlled the queues in an effort to reduce congestion at the busiest inland port of entry in sub-Saharan Africa. The local assistant regional immigration manager in charge of Beit Bridge Border Post, Mr Charles Gwede, attributed the sudden increase in the volume of traffic to mounting pressure on the South African side, resulting in delays in the clearance of traffic entering the country. “We were forced to hold the cars up for several hours, largely because our South African counterparts are failing to absorb pressure on their side, resulting in the formation of long winding queues on our side,” he said. He said most of the people started travelling on Wednesday, the majority of whom were Zimbabweans working in South Africa, flocking back to the country at the end of the festive season. When Limpopo Mirror visited the border post, there were long queues of both human and vehicular traffic waiting to be cleared by customs and immigration officials on the departure side. Gwede said, however, that they were managing the situation. “I can safely say right now that everything is under control and our officers are efficiently managing the queues. We have also created separate immigration counters for buses as a way of easing congestion and ensuring a smooth movement of travellers,” he said. Gwede said that as part of the decongestion drive they were working with the police to control the movement of traffic into the border area. He said on average they handled between 80 and 120 buses on either side during the extra high peak period. On the arrival side, it was less busy, with short queues and the volume of traffic had also gone down substantially, compared to the period during the run-up to Christmas. Border Control Operation Coordinating Committee (BCOCC) spokesperson Mr Patrick Moengs said that they were reviewing plans to address congestion at the border. “We want to ensure a smooth flow of traffic at the Beit Bridge border as it will be coming from the other side of the border. The situation is not unusual, however, because we know that every year at this time people will be coming back into the country, including those who will be going to look for jobs. We have increased staff and equipment to make sure that we manage the pressure,” he said. Moeng said they had processed 54 299 travellers between Saturday and Sunday. Meanwhile, the Ministers of Home Affairs for Zimbabwe and South Africa, Mr Kembo Mohadi and Ms Naledi Pandor, also discussed the issue of congestion at the border post. Mohadi said: “I talked to Minister Pandor over the issue of delays and congestion at the Beit Bridge Border Post and she promised to engage the Home Affairs director general, so that they deploy more personnel as well as create more mobile makeshift offices at their side of the border to help speed up the clearance of travellers,” he said.

Shufflers Ragimana and Jahman Chiganja put their reggae music lovers on cloud nine as singing and dancing was the order of the day until the wee hours of the next morning. The two artists left hundreds music maniacs crying for more as they continued to hit them with sweet music which took their blues away. The artists took control of the stage when they hit their fans with their famous songs. After their performance, Shufflers said he was satisfied that, at long last, he had performed with distinction for his fans. “Many people did not have the opportunity to see me performing live, but they now had the opportunity to do so on their home soil. I am very happy as I could see that the people were happy through their reaction when I was performing on stage. I’m still prepared to give more to my fans in future. This show was a way of saying ‘thank you’ to my loyal fans because they have supported me through and through.” The same sentiments were echoed by Jahman Chiganja. “I’m happy that I have made my fans happy.

LIMPOPO MIRROR By Elmon Tshikhudo 11 January 2013 9 Mike Nkuna entertains Nkuzana residents Mr Mike Nkuna of the Masingita Group of Companies recently splashed more than R300 000 to spoil the community of Nkuzana in the Makhado Municipality. He organised food and drinks for the community. Nkuna also gave food parcels to 100 vulnerable children in the area at a cost of R250 each. He had also paid for musicians such as the internationally recognised group Khanghela and Sunnyboy Mhlengwe to entertain them. This is not the first time he had ploughed back into his community. Last year, he gave food parcels to 50 children. The event has excited the community since Nkuna is not a resident of the area as he is staying at Shitlhelani Village in Malamulele. The event was attended by the political leadership of three municipalities,Thulamela, Greater Giyani and Makhado. Addressing the crowd, Nkuna said his parents were warmly welcomed by the community when they started a shop and settled in the village in 1972. “Since it was our first family business, I can say my business life started at Nkuzana and we must learn to give credit where credit is due,” he said. Nkuna said because of the scourge of Aids, some families were faced with the harsh reality of poverty, to the extent that some could not afford a loaf of bread. “Those of us who have made it must make destitute youths enjoy the fruits of our labours as a way of inspiring them to succeed,” said Nkuna. He said he was given a piece of land by the traditional leadership and would build a mall in the community this year as a way of providing jobs to the community. “We must change focus; rather than giving the community fish, we will be teaching them how to fish,” he said. “If my parents were turned away from Nkuzana, I would probably not be a successful man,” he said.

CALL FOR PUBLIC REVIEW For Provincial Nature Reserves PROTECTED AREA MANAGEMENT PLAN/S The Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment & Tourism (LEDET) is the designated Management Authority for all Provincial Nature Reserves and is responsible for the compilation of a Protected Area Management Plan (PAMP) for each reserve in accordance with the National Environmental Management: Protected Areas Act, No. 57 of 2003. Each PAMP is comprised of one Five-year Strategic Management Plan (SMP) and five consecutive Annual Plans of Operation (APO’s). The SMP provides an overarching mangement framework and zonation plan for the protected area and informs the subsequent management activities on the reserve through five consecutive APO’s. It is a requirement of the Act that the Designated Management Authority (LEDET) engage with interested and affected parties in the compilation of these Plans. X NCC Environmental Services (NCC) is the service provider appointed to compile these plans. Significant consultation has already taken place in the development of the Draft Strategic Management Plans, including consultation with Reserve Managers, LEDET & LTA officials, the respective Reserve Planning Teams (which include key local stakeholders), and broader stakeholders at stakeholder engagement workshops (26 November - 05 December 2012). x Stakeholders are hereby invited to contribute to the further development of the SMPs by providing comment on the SMPs within the provided timeframe: 07 January - 08 February 2013. x A downloadable SMP and Comment Form per nature reserve (PDF version) are now available for your review and comment - http://www.ncc-group.co.za/blog.

During a tense meeting held at the Chief of Tshiombo’s kraal shortly before Christmas 2012, the angry community stated that they wanted all Zimbabwean nationals out of the area. Chief Ratshilumela Tovhowani Mathoho confirmed that the community wanted all Zimbabweans out of the village. Mathoho, however, advised the community to follow the proper channels by writing a letter to the police at Mutale, explaining their decision. Mutale police spokesperson Tshilidzi Nyambeni confirmed that a Zimbabwean national was recently arrested in connection with the murder of Ms Phuluso Kharivhe (21), and the attack on her mother, Christinah. Nyambeni said the suspect was arrested at Matangari village with the assistance of the Thohoyandou police. The suspect had already appeared in the Mutale Magistrate’s Court and the case was postponed. Phuluso and her mother were attacked on December 9 at about 19:00, while they were walking to their home. According to Christina (48), she was walking with her daughter, Phuluso, and her grandson, Thangano Phuluso was buried on SaturLifamisa (5), when they saw day morning (15 December) at a man following them with a her home village of Munginditorch in his hand.

LIMPOPO MIRROR 11 January 2013 11 12 11 January 2013 By Kaizer Nengovhela LIMPOPO MIRROR Leopards and coach Palmer part ways Black Leopards recently parted ways with Coach Ian Palmer, after he had guided the team for about three months. Leopards’ spokesperson, Mr Tendani Thidiela, confirmed Palmer’s departure. According to him, Palmer’s contract with the club was terminated on New Year’s Day, due to what was termed as ‘irreconcilable differences’. Prior to his exit, Palmer was suspended, with the club investigating allegations of the mistreatment of players. Palmer’s former assistant, Mr Abel Makhubela, has been appointed as caretaker-coach. Makhubela has been with the team for years and has served as assistant to Messrs Vladislav Heric and Sunday Chidzambwa and lately to Palmer. Makhubela took charge of Lidoda Duvha’s final game in 2012, a 1-1 draw with Telkom Knockout champions Bloemfontein Celtic in December. Thidiela has confirmed that Makhubela has been elevated to head coach of the club for the rest of Leopards’ assistant coach, Mr Abel Makhubele. the season. The former Safa coaching instructor is no stranger to Lidoda Duvha’s hot seat. He was in charge when Leopards beat the Zimbabwean giants, Motor Action, 3-1 in a CAF Confederations Cup match last year. Makhubela was in Germany in May 2012 to improve his coaching skills and Lidoda Duvha supporters will hope the knowledge he gained in Frankfurt will help him guide the club to top honours. Thidiela also confirmed that Makhubela will be assisted by club’s goalkeeper coach, Edward Ansah. Of his eight matches in charge, Palmer won two, lost four and shared the spoils in two matches, leaving the club sitting in the 12th spot on the log, with 17points from 16 matches. Makhubela’s first assignment will be a home fixture against Bidvest Wits on 13 February at the Peter Mokaba Stadium. Former Black Leopards coach, Mr Ian Palmer.

By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho 11 January 2013 13 New house for indigent couple A 47-year-old homeless man could not contain his joy when he heard that a building construction company has set aside R55 000 to build him a house and buy him some furniture. Mr Josepth Khuba’s oneroomed, mud-brick house was destroyed by a rain storm on the night of 5 September last year when he and his spouse, Ms Azwindini Selina Maano (39, were fast asleep at their home in Tshikwarani in the Kutama area. He was left homeless. Rendeals Four Consulting has committed itself to building a four-roomed house for Khuba and Maano, after Cllr Nndwamato Kutama (Ward 26) had requested a donation of a house for the indigent couple. “We anticipate that the work should be completed before the end of January,” said Rendeals Four Consulting’s CEO, Mr Goddard Masiavhula. Masiavhula said that he was deeply touched by the family’s painful situation when Cllr Kutama forwarded him the sad news and pictures of the collapsed house. He then decided to help out when there was still time. The company is based in Johannesburg, while Masiavhula originally came from Tshikwarani. The opening-of-the-site construction event was attended by Khosi Vho-Vele Kutama and members of both the Kutama Traditional Authority and Kutama Royal Council, and Rendeals’ site developer, Mr David Masemola. Makhado Municipality’s representative, Mr Patrick Mobbie, indicated at length that the municipality encouraged projects of this nature. “We are also happy to see this kind of good relationship between the ward councillors and the traditional council,” Mobbie said. “I want to believe that it is the kind of this relationship which convinced Rendeals Four Consulting to agree to build a house for a needy family.” As a result of this project, at least four unemployed people have been hired to work on the project as a short-term relief measure. Mr Khuba and his spouse manage to scratch out a living by performing small chores in households around the village. “I cannot tell how great my joy has become,” said Khuba. “People (Kutama Traditional Authority and Cllr Kutama) came to inform me about the house to be built for me. I didn’t ask for a house.This is a true gift! “ Young volunteers of the Youth Against Crime project assisted the South African Police Service last month to bring more visible policing to the central business district of Makhado (Louis Trichardt) and other centres during the festive season. This group was photographed alongside Songozwi street. Police Correspondent detained by border police Limpopo Mirror’s correspondent at Beit Bridge, Mr Mashudu Netsianda, was detained by the SAPS at the Beit Bridge border post on Monday afternoon, allegedly at the instigation of the local Border Control Operation Coordinating Committee (BCOCC) coordinator, Mr Michael Malindi. This reporter had apparently approached Malindi, seeking a comment on the situation at the border post, following massive congestion that had resulted in travellers’ being delayed at the port of entry. Netsianda and a colleague from a Zimbabwean newspaper were taken to the SAPS offices at around at 12:20 where they were subsequently detained for at least three hours by detectives from the Crime Intelligence Unit for questioning. The journalists’ passports, notebooks and a camera which, however, did not contain images of the border, were confiscated by the detectives as they interrogated them. At around 15:00, the two were released after police had failed to press charges against them. Meanwhile, BCOCC spokesperson Mr Patrick Moengs attributed the border delays to an increase in movement as more Zimbabweans working in South Africa were returning in large numbers as well as the rigorous border screening processes involved. “As border authorities, we are dealing with nationalities of different countries, hence we are obliged to check on various things, Mr Mashudu Net which include scrutinis- sianda ing travel documents and permits as some people have a tendency of wanting to capitalise on the situation by presenting fake documents. We are also checking on firearms, among other things, which are likely to be smuggled into South Africa and that is precisely why travellers encountered delays at the border,” he said.

Memorial Hospital rewards its staff The Louis Trichardt Memorial Hospital awarded members of its staff certificates of recognition and tokens of appreciation during the year-end function held at the hospital a fortnight ago. Ten staff members were awarded certificates for long service, which ranged from 20 to 30 years of loyal and dedicated service. Six certificates of appreciation were handed over to six retired employees, after the hospital acknowledged that they were still part of the hospital's family. Certificates of recognition were also given to internal departmental teams which have gone the extra mile in making sure that health care is provided to the patients. Among others, the pharmacy team received Best Batho-Pele trophy and a certificate for improvement of public service results in delivering service in a manner emphasizing timelessness, kindness, helpfulness, efficiency and courtesy. “It warms up my heart to receive recognition from my work place,” said the award's recipient, Daniel Mhlongo. “We were able to achieve all this because of team work.” Local motivational speaker and pastor Mrs Violet Liremi advised people to stay away from thoughts and ideas of jealousy in the work place. “Positive attitude sees an answer in every problem,” Liremi told the people. “We must teach ourselves to learn from other people's mistakes, so as not to repeat the same mistakes. Being jealous of an efficient colleague will not add any value to your life or work.” Liremi concluded by telling the people to seek advice from those who had walked the path before them, if ever they needed some work-related information or knowledge. She said thoughts of jealousy created much backlog and incompetency in many governmental institutions, where colleagues fight for positions instead of delivering service to the community.

By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Two Vuwani escapees in custody again Two notorious Vuwani escapees, Mushe Nemudzivhadi (23) and Moses “Siganya” Tshishonga (28), were recaptured in October and November 2012, after evading the police for almost five months. Nemudzivhadi and Tshishonga are among the five trial-awaiting suspects who escaped from the Vuwani police station's holding cells on 3 June last year. They allegedly escaped through a hole they had cut in the roof of the room. The police followed a lead and arrested Tshishonga in Jabulani, Johannesburg. Nemudzivhadi was recaptured on 28 November in the Vhembe area, where he had been continuing to terrorise the communities. The two men appeared in the Vuwani Magistrate's Court on 14 December 2012 on charges of escaping from lawful custody and malicious damage to state property. Tshishonga was sentenced to an effective 48 months' imprisonment, while Nemudzivhadi got a sentence of 60 months in jail. Both accused were declared unfit to possess a firearm and ammunition for the rest of their lives. The accussed were initially in the police holding cells for crimes which ranged from armed robbery, house robbery, housebreaking and theft to common robbery. However, according to Vuwani police spokesperson W/O Elijah Malatjie, Nemudzivhadi had continued commiting the same crimes in areas such as Malamulele, Levubu, Thohoyandou and Vuwani as an escapee. “We will follow the two men's outstanding cases until the final day in court,” said Malatjie. “We also wish to thank the community, who provided us with the information which helped us rearrest the two criminals." 2013 Toyota Etios 1.5XS Hatch • No Deposit • 72 Months • 13% Rate FOR ONLY: R2 600 p.m. R121 000 For quotations contact: Lizette Roets 083 603 3315 / 015 534 0717 Anton Hibbert 082 329 8559 / 015 534 0717 Email: email@example.com NOW FOR STOCK AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY ON ALL MODELS ABOVE. • LIZETTE ROETS: 083 603 3315 • ANTON HIBBERT: 082 329 8559 • JACO VAN DER MERWE: 0828511097 MESSINA TOYOTA Tel. 0155340717 / Fax.0155340745 e-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org Mushe Nemudzivhadi Moses Siganya Tshi (23). shonga (28).

LIMPOPO MIRROR By Frank Mavhungu 11 January 2013 19 River Bank scrape through to semi finals of Total Cup Jerome River Bank booked a place in the semifinal stage of the prestigious SAFA Vhembe Total Challenge by beating Tshifhire Northern Brothers 2-1 at the FNB Makwarela Stadium on Sunday. River Bank were out of touch in the first 20 minutes of the game. They later gained momentum. Brothers’ killer striker, Edgar “Ferreira” Molewa, did not live up to the fans’ expectations as he was tightly marked. Instead of replacing him at the end of the first half, the technical staff of Brothers allowed Molewa to be part of the game to the finish although he was harmless. The score was still 0-0 at the end of the first half, despite numerous attempts by the Brothers’ frontrunners. Jerome strengthened their midfielders by replacing Ronald Hlongwane with Musa Novela in the 57th minute. They were awarded a free kick just outside the box three minutes after the introduction of Novela. Rungulani Khosa emerged from nowhere and beat the offside trap to open the River Bank’s account. Jerome started to play defensive football soon afterwards and relied mostly on counterattacks. The strategy worked for them as they managed to score their second goal in the 74th minute. Rungulani Khosa dribbles past three Brothers’ defenders in a row before dishing a square pass to Sydwell Sombane, who was in the perfect scoring position. Sombane unleashed a ground cutter from inside the box, beating the diminutive keeper, Phathu Muanalo. Northern Brothers did not stop fighting, despite the fact that time was not on their side. Their consolation goal came in the 84th minute. Mphariseni Neluvhada, who came on as a substitute, was on target after Lazaro Chauke of River Bank controls the a scramble within the box. Edgar ball.
