Buried at last Happy at last ... family members surround the grave of their beloved Phineas after the burial.
By Elmon Tshikhudo
For a whole month his body had been lying in a cold mor tuary fridge as his three wives fought over who was entitled to bury him. Finally, the courts decided in favour of the two former wives, whom he had left for a new one in the same village. Mr Phineas Mudzunga (53) of
Tshitomboni was scheduled to be buried early on Saturday. As fate would have it, on the morning he was to be buried, heavy rains fell with thunder and lightning, and the funeral was delayed. When the rain subsided, the funeral service went on but with the third wife, Vho Makhadzi Johanna Mpondi, not in attendance. Hundreds of community mem-
bers, friends and relatives, who had waited a month, paid their last respects to Mudzunga as his coffin came to its last resting place in the local cemetery. At the cemetery, the grave that had a big headstone and which had been dug under orders of the third wife had been flattened and a new one with a small headstone was to be at his final resting place. Speaking after the funeral,

Mr Mmbangiseni Mudzunga, one of the deceased’s sons, said the family was relieved that they had buried their beloved father at long last. “This has been one of the most painful moments the family had to go through. We never thought that our father’s funeral would have to be decided through the courts. As children, we never thought anybody would challenge us in burying our fa-
ther. We are just happy that it had come to pass and our father was buried with dignity,” he said. The local traditional leader, Chief Zwidofhelangani Mmbubana, said he was also happy that Mudzunga was finally buried. “This incident does not put us in a good light. Had the families agreed when we tried to solve this matter here, they would not have lost money. There are things that
could easily be solved locally, without involving the courts,” he added. He stated that the lesson from the incident was that “we should fix our things when we are still alive, in order not to leave problems when we are gone.” Efforts to get comment from the third wife drew a blank as her daughter indicated that she was not prepared to make any comment.

ohn Tinyiko Maswanganyi was born into a family of seven at the Tshikota Township on the 11th of November 1970. John leaves behind his aged and hardworking mother, siblings, his eleven children and six grandchildren. I knew John as a young boy when karate was in fashion, when hard work and exercise were virtues. Bruce Lee was the in thing. A marquee tent set up by the then administration, known as the “Raad”, was our battlefield. This was when Tshikota was divided into Dutch, Tsamahatsi and Ma Deep Six. Like many others who could not afford new clothes, the Maswanganyis became customers to my late mother’s secondhand clothing business that helped us survive. When clean and ironed, who would be able to tell that it was previously enjoyed clothes? In this community that was established as reserved for labour, the majority of residents occupied houses on a rental basis, except for the privileged few who owned better houses. To be precise, six families owned better properties. Each of the inhabitants had to have a permit, otherwise they would be evicted. At that time, since his family was big, people took turns to sleep on the bed if they were lucky to have one. This reality gave ground to the awareness of what it meant to be on the other side of the buffer zone that separated the main town from the township. This ended with separate development and the introduction of the bantustans. The Maswanganyis, too, were forced to leave for Vleifontein, while others were forced to Indermark, Thohoyandou and Waterval. This was the age of forceful removals. While on the other side, the bantustans were taking hold with a few privileges dished out to those who embraced the system, John,as a young man in his teens, refused to embrace the system. At the time, John was a Std 5 pupil who not only distinguished himself as a good maths student, but also as an avid debater. That is where he became popular. His love for

8-Year-old pupil killed in accident A Grade 3 pupil at the Theo centric Christian College at Masia, Craig Baloyi (8) of Olif antshoek, died in an accident at the Njakanjaka-Marholeni Tjunction along the Giyani R578 road on Monday morning. It is alleged that Baloyi was one of 21 pupils who were passengers in the taxi on their way to school, when the taxi collided with a BMW. W/O Kedibone Mabatha of the Waterval SAPS explained to Limpopo Mirror what happened: “The taxi was coming from the direction of Marholeni and made a U-turn and was hit by an oncoming vehicle. Members of the traffic police and paramedics rushed to the scene and the injured were taken to the Elim Hospital for treatment. Four were later transferred to the Polokwane
Provincial Hospital.” Mabatha added that the police were investigating a case of reckless and negligent driving. “Further charges may be brought against the driver of the taxi, pending the outcome of the police investigations,” he said. Although she was visibly shocked, one of the scolars, Lettie Baloyi, told this newspaper that the accident happened so suddenly that no one even managed to scream. “We were very lucky to survive. I thank God that we survived the accident. We heard a big bang and then the taxi rolled several times. There was a huge cloud of dust and we could not see what was happening,” she added. She suffered minor injuries to her head and had fractured both
legs.“This is the most horrible experience of my life," she said. The spokesman for the Limpopo department of roads and transport, Mr Joshua Kgapa, said that they would investigate the cause of the accident and also make a follow-up on the allegations made by commuters. Mr Brown Kahira, principal of the Theocentric College, said that Craig was an intelligent pupil. “This is a huge shock and totally unexpected. We all mourn his death." Kahira added that the funeral would be held at Olifantshoek at 06:00 on Saturday morning. Makhado Mayor Cllr David Mutavhatsindi expressed his condolences to the affected families. He appealed to motorists to obey the traffic rules, especially during the festive season.
Three suspects, who had allegedly been ter rorising the Biaba community and surround ing area with housebreaking and theft, were arrested at Mutiti last Wednesday. The three, Masala Dube (30), Prince Thomu (30) and Phathutshedzo Motlapa (22), were arrested by the Mphephu police after a tip-off from community members at Mutiti village. W/O Lazurus Netshidzati, spokesperson for the Mphephu police, confirmed the incident, adding that the police had recovered groceries, cigarettes and airtime vouchers. The police have opened a case of housebreaking and theft. According to Netshidzati, both Thomu and Mothapa are from Mutiti village, while Dube is from Zimbambwe. Netshidzati praised members of the community for their continuous involvement in the fight against crime.

Mayor donates computers to school The executive mayor of Vhembe, Cllr Tshitereke Matibe, has donated three computers, a photocopier and 30 pairs of shoes to the pupils of Ramana Primary School at Alicedale farm, outside Tshipise Aventura. He presented the donation to the principal, Mr Tshikonelo Nekhubvi, in the presence of the local traditional leader, Ntsieni Nemamilwe, and circuit manager Dr Ntavhanyeni Phaswana during a ceremony last Wednesday.
He said he decided to donate the goods to the school to make sure that "these learners also get access to computers like other kids who are in urban areas." He added that it was important for him to donate shoes to 36 of the 60 pupils at the school, so that they must not walk to school barefoot. He expressed the hope that the donations will help the pupils to concentrate on their education, "so that we can produce engineers and pilots from this school," said Matibe. The chairperson of the school
governing body, Ms Elisa Manenzhe, said some of the pupils walked for more than 30 kilometers to attend the school at Schuitdrift. Cllr Matibe also thanked two local farmers, Messrs Barend Vorster and Hendrich Wilkinson, who assist in transporting some of the pupils from their farms to Ramana. Dr Phaswana said the community should make sure that the computers and printer do not disappear from the school, like the computers that were stolen last February.
Well-known taxi boss assassinated A well-known taxi owner of Musina, Mr George Makwase la (34), was shot and killed at his home on Tuesday morning. His death is allegedly related to taxi violence. The spokesperson for the Musina Police, Lt Peter Mudau, told Limpopo Mirror that Makwasela was shot at around 07:00. “He was shot from close range and we found 16 cartridges next to his body”. Mr Richardt Makwasela, brother of the deceased, said they suspect that his brother was shot by somebody known to the family. “We are still shocked and terrified by this assassination. We used to regard him as our pillar. He was always available to solve our problems,” he added. He mentioned that it was difficult to understand why his brother was killed. “He was a visionary and By Elmon Tshikhudo
the strategic thinker of the family's transport business.” According to him he heard the shots, but thought they were firecrackers. "When I looked through the window, I saw two men running away. Two cars, one taxi and a van, were parked not far from the scene of the murder," he added. “We have received many messages of condolences locally and from abroad and it shows us that my uncle was a people’s person and accommodating to everyone, irrespective of colour, race and religion,” he said. The mayor of the Musina Municipality, Cllr Carol Phiri, extended her condolences to the bereaved family. She indicated that the municipality would sorely miss the good working relationship and support they received from the Makwasela family.
The chairperson of the Musina Taxi association, Mr Kaizer Phiri, said that he was still shocked that one of its members was shot dead. "The deceased's colleagues, who had been traumatised by the incident, were receiving counselling,” added Phiri. He expressed his condolences to the Makwasela family. “The role he played in fostering unity, discipline, hard work and dedication within the family and community shall always be cherished,” Phiri said. Mr Makwasela is survived by his wife and five children. According to his brother, funeral arrangements are at an advanced stage. Lt Mudau said the police were investigating the tragedy. No one has been arrested yet, and anyone with information is requested to contact the police.
Huge science boost for Dzindi schools ence schools in the Dzindi circuit in Vhembe last year. This year, he facilitated a two-day workshop for primary school teachers in the same circuit. The workshop focussed on Acids and Bases, a practical topic in natural science. "It has always been my wish to share the knowledge of science with my fellow South Africans. Through the assistance from SAASTA and my employer, the University of Limpopo, I am able to go around the country, assisting the young ones at schools. "The experiments we cover are very much relevant to the syllabi in Grades 4 to 7 and I must admit that most of us only came across such experiments at tertiary
level. These ones are lucky to get it early in their educational careers," said Netsianda. The schools also received educators’ guides, learners’ guides and periodic tables. The circuit manager at Dzindi, Ms Tinyiko Nkuzana, said it would be a shame if the kits were not utilized maximally. "We are very thankful for what Netsianda is doing in reviving the love of science in our learners at an early age. We will monitor that these kits are not just stored in cupboards, but made use of. Learners can only develop an interest in science, engineering and technology if they are exposed to experiments and encouraged to do projects," she said.

Struggle hero Tshifhiwa Muofhe honoured 31 years after his death in police cell In a poignant reminder of the injustices of apartheid, the pastor who was to offi ciate at the funeral of Tshifhiwa Muofhe wept when he prayed at the dead activ ist’s grave, 31 years after his death. “I am the one who officiated at Muofhe’s wedding, but when he died, the system that ruled our country refused me, an African, to pray at the grave of an African in Africa,” said Dr Elija Maswanganyi, the well-known Tzaneen cleric, as he wept. Later, at the Matatshe prison, Judge Tshifhiwa Maumela of the North Gauteng High Court talked of the conditions at Matatshe Prison when he and the late Muofhe were incarcerated by the former Venda police in 1981. Speaking during the unveiling of the plaque outside the cell in which Muofhe died at the hands of the police, Maumela said each of the detainees
was dumped in a small cell and one had to sleep and exercise there. “No Bible was allowed and no hymn books were allowed,” said Maumela during his first visit to the prison since then. He added that all the detainees hated the clicking sound of keys. “When you heard the clicking sounds, you knew that they were coming for one of you and the chances were that you might not come back,” said Maumela. The Deputy Minister for Correctional Services, Adv Ngoako Ramatlhodi, unveiled a plaque in honour of the late activist with these words: In honour of Tshifhiwa Muofhe who bravely fought and laid down his life in the struggle against oppression so that all South Africans may be free and be equal before the law. Ramatlhodi, pastors and members of the
Muofhe family laid a wreath in the Medium B centre single cell, number 2, where Muofhe died. In unveiling the plaque, Ramatlhodi said they were marking a site where one of their heroes died. Earlier on at Matatshe, Ramatlhodi had addressed offenders on how they can be reintegrated into society after spending a term in prison. He later on went to conduct the Tshifhiwa memorial lecture, in memory of the late leader, at Charis Church in Makwarela. He shared the stage with Muofhe’s long-time friend, Dr Tshenuwani Farisani of the Lutheran church. Muofhe was a lay preacher, an activist of note, who was killed shortly after MK bombed the Sibasa Police Station on October 31, 1981, leaving several policemen dead. One of the highlights was when more

than 20 motorbikes drove around Thohoyandou, retracing Tshifhiwa Muofhe’s steps. They went to his house, to the torture centre in Sibasa, to the then Sibasa Police Station, to Beuster Mission and the Matatshe Prison, to the cemetery where he
was buried. Prayers were said at each place which had touched his life. Many activists who were active in the 80s attended the event and the road show, which was hugely supported.

Main computer system stolen at school The Sukumani Kundani Sec ondary School at Gogobole was yet again dealt another blow when thieves broke into the staff office and sneaked away with the main computer system and other property last Thurs day evening (8 November). When the staff came to open the school on Friday morning, they discovered that the main door and security door to the staff offices had been damaged and forced open. A computer system and a printer, a cheque book and a box of calculators
were missing. “This is really a setback to the school’s progress and our pupils, who are currently writing their end-of-year exams,” said the principal of the school, Vho-Progress Kutama. “We use the computer for preparing most of our records and exam matter. Now we are left stranded without a computer.” According to Kutama, it is not the first time that the school has experienced a blow of this nature. In September 2010, thieves stole two computer systems, including printers. “I want to believe that
the thieves are somewhere among us. Nobody would come from far-away places to steal from us,” Kutama said. The spokesperson for the Tshilwavhusiku police, Const Munyadziwa Marindi, confirmed a case of housebreaking and theft. “We haven’t arrested any suspects so far,” Marindi said. The Sukumani Kundani Secondary School appeals to any Good Samaritans out there who might help with the donation of a computer system to phone VhoKutama at 083 308 2496.

Disabled students appreciate donation Disabled students of the Uni versity of Venda were over the moon when they received an amount of R400 000 as sponsorship from the Banking Sector and Training Author ity on Friday. The sponsorship will assist the university to buy multieducational tools for the unit of the disabled students. Senior Bank Seta officials, including its CEO, Mr Max Makhubalo, the chairperson, Mr Martin Mahosi, and council member Mr Myan Subramoney brought the donation on Friday, After the official handing over of the cheque, Makhubalo delivered a public lecture, discussing the role of the sector education and training authority (Seta) in transforming the banking and micro-finance sector and the economy. Representing the disabled students, Mr Ronald Ramonetha, a final year BA (Human Resources Management) student, said the new resources would boost their results at the
end of the year. “With the few resources available, it was very frustrating to learn under these conditions. We are very happy for the donation. Education will be much better when using the assistive devices,” said Ramonatha. While launching the programme, Makhubalo said the long-term programme was aimed at providing disabled students with the proper multiple educational tools to prepare them for the job market. He said they would be able to buy tools that would enable disabled students to access information in the library and through the Internet. Makhubalo said the banking sector was facing a challenge to meet the 4% target of employing disabled people as set out by the Financial Services Board. “By helping these students, we are making the pool of employable disabled people bigger,” said Makhubalo. He said the Bank Seta was also fulfilling its social responsibility role of helping to integrate disabled students into the main stream of the economy as well
as the social life. Univen principal Prof Peter Mbati said it was good news for the university, which is celebrating 30 years of its existence. “A few months ago, we received a substantial amount of money from Bank Seta and now we receive more from them again,” said Mbati. He said the money was a milestone and would go a long way in helping fulfil the university’s vision about improving the disability unit at the institution. “We will use the money properly and we will account for every cent,” Mbati assured the Bank Seta delegation. The launch follows the signing of the memorandum of understanding between the university and the Bank Seta. The disability unit at the University of Venda is believed to have the largest number of students in the country. It supports students with various disabilities, including visual, hearing, physical, speech impairments, chronic illnesses, psychological disabilities as well as temporary disabilities.
“We want change” - local ANC branches Following the story we ran last week about the Tshif hiwa Muofhe ANC branch, declaring its support for Pres Jacob Zuma to retain his posi tion during the forthcoming Mangaung conference, more ANC branches came out into the open and declared their support for Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe as their preferred candidate. Ms Fulufhelo Mutheiwana, chairperson of the Nandoni branch and councillor for Ward 19 of the Thulamela Municipal-
ity, said her branch supported Motlanthe because they want a change of leadership in Mangaung. “In any committee, if a person stays in a position of leadership for too long, he or she becomes big-headed and corrupt. We are positive that when we come back, the ANC and not an individual will be the winner,” said Mutheiwana. Lutanyani Denge of Lwandani branch said they took a decision to endorse Motlanthe at their meeting held on 27 October. He also said that they took the
decision to support Motlanthe, “because they see him as a person who can bring change to the country. The most important issue is economic freedom. The issue of distribution of wealth and resources is very important and we believe Mohlante will help on that one,” said Denge. Mr Maanda Tharaga, chairperson of the ANC Mutsindi branch, said they also took the decision to support Motlanthe “because they believe he can be a good leader for the country”.

Frustrations continue as Telkom struggles to fix hotel’s lines A hotel manager became desperate when four months passed and he still sat with a crow’s nest of cables and a faulty telephone line. The re sult was that clients could not use their credit cards because the card machines were not working. “The line would sometimes work and take a client’s credit card and then refuse to take any further cards. At other times, it would not take any card. Understandably, our clients became very upset,” said Mr Hennie Els, general manager of the Bergwater Hotel in Makhado (Louis Trichardt). Things started going wrong when the hotel moved its reception area and telephone lines. Since then, they have been left with was a crow’s nest of cables. A month or two ago, Els managed to get the Telkom technician responsible for the crow’s nest to come out. “He
told me to get another technician. Eventually, I managed to get another one, but he just told me that he was not going to touch that mess because Telkom cables had not been used,” Els said. Els managed to get two reference numbers with regard to complaints lodged. “Our clients are frustrated. One longstanding client even said she would not be coming here anymore,” said Mr Lawrence Ratshilavhi, who works at reception. At one stage, the suspicion was that the card machines, from two commercial banks, might be the problem. “The banks tested their systems and maintained that the fault was not on their side,” Els said. Of late, Els’s cellular phone calls to Telkom are not being answered anymore, and neither have his messages been responded to. The Limpopo Mirror phoned Mr Albert Luvhengo of Telkom
from the hotel’s landline last Monday and he confirmed the two references, dated 9 October and 3 November. The system, however, showed that the line was cleared on the afternoon of Sunday, 4 November. Els and Ratshilavhi said that they were still experiencing problems with the card machines on Sunday evening. Luvhengo kindly agreed that he would come immediately with a technician, and they arrived at the hotel in less than 10 minutes. “They spent the whole day fixing the crow’s nest, putting in new boxes for an extension and really doing their utmost. It is, unfortunately, too early to say whether the card machines will work consistently,” Els said on Tuesday. Early Wednesday morning, the hotel reported that their card machines were functioning perfectly, indicat- Hotel manager Mr Hennie Els, looking at a ing that the problem had been a crow’s nest (insert) of cables that is probably Telkom fault. causing a faulty telephone line.

Woman robbed of money and cellphone A 23-year-old Beit Bridge woman was severely assaulted with a log by two unknown suspects before they robbed her of R10 000 and a Nokia cellphone as she was relieving herself in a bushy area, police have said. Police spokesperson Sgt Loveness Mangena said the incident occurred last Friday at around 07:00 near Motor Zuma Mine outside Beit Bridge. “The victim, Ms Ulvis Gandijana, went to a nearby bush and while in the process of relieving herself, she was spotted by two unknown men, who confronted her,” she said. The two suspects demanded money from the woman, struck her with a log on the neck and she fell down. They took her wallet containing a Nokia cellphone and R10 000. Gandijana reported the matter to the police, who have since launched a manhunt for the two suspects. “We are appealing to members of the public to assist us with information that could possibly lead to the arrest of the suspects. We also urge people to desist from moving around while carrying large sums of money as they risk being robbed,” said Mangena. By Elmon Tshikhudo
Undertaker Sigidi to be buried The family of the late visionary funeral under taker, Dr Ramaano Bono Lizhakandila Sigidi, said he would be remembered for his love, care and generosity. Sigidi (63) died in the Pretoria Heart Hospital last Wednesday. The founder of the very successful Tshitshithe Funeral Undertakers has been described as a family man, whose love went beyond his family to the community. He will be remembered for his great involvement in assisting communities and families in need. He was the first undertaker to pledge his assistance to bus accident victims in Nzhelele, when many people were killed. He also assisted families of a train disaster at Muraleni. For many without shelter, he built houses and he helped many through their schooling. He will also be remembered for helping destitute families to bury their loved ones without charging them a cent. Reacting to the death of her father, Tshilidzi Sigidi, the second-born daughter of the deceased, said his death was a great loss to the family and the community at large. “He was a loving person, who did not only care for us, but whoever crossed paths with him. Some he did not even know. He gave us everything in life. He taught us all the ropes in business and also gave us the foundation to start our own businesses as his children.” She said they were grateful that, just before he died, he gave them his blessings and told them that he was satisfied that they would pick up the baton and continue where he left off. Sigidi will be buried on Sunday at the family gravesite behind his business, where all The late visionary bu his family members are sinessman, Ramaano buried. Sigidi.

Zimbabweans urged to go home to vote in referendum Zimbabwean nationals who are living outside the country are urged to go back home and exercise their right to vote during next year’s elections. This call was made during a meeting held at Musina Municipality’s boardroom in Nancefield last Sunday. The meeting was organised by the Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition’s regional office, based in Johannesburg. According to Mr Tafadzwa Maguchu, media and communication officer of the group, the meeting was meant to provide an analysis and update about the situation in Zimbabwe since the formation of a coalition government between ZanuPF, MDC and its faction, led by Arthur Mutambara. During the meeting, MDC member of parliament Dorcas Sibanda said she was urging all Zimbabweans to vote “Yes” in the referendum that is going to be conducted early next year on whether the draft constitution should be approved or not.
Sibanda said they were urging the Zimbabweans to vote “Yes” as they are happy about 75% of its contents, such as the 50/50 representation of men and women in parliament. According to this draft constitution, the president is only allowed to stand for two terms. “We also managed to push that civil servants, especially police and soldiers, must not campaign for elections,” said Sibanda. She added that there were still outstanding issues, such as freedom of the press. “The fact that Zanu-PF is unhappy with 266 points in the constitution confirms that we managed to push for a better constitution that will take the country back to normal,” said Sibanda. If the majority of Zimbabweans vote “Yes” during the referendum, elections will be held early next year. However, Mr Madock Chivasa, spokesperson for the National Constitutional Assembly in Zimbabwe, said that “the Zimbabweans should vote ‘No’ to
the constitution as it does not represent them.” Chirasa added said they did not want a better constitution “but a perfect one.” Meanwhile, Mr Sipho Theys, a South African from a lobby group called Action Support Centre (Zimbabwe Solidarity Forum), said Zimbabweans should go home and vote “Yes” during the referendum, so that they can also vote for change during elections. Theys said the formation of the coalition government had laid the foundation that had made it possible for political processes that enabled non-violent expression of political and social aspirations. “I have heard that the community is agreeing that the draft constitution is a step in the right direction, even though it has its weakness. This is a working document and it can be improved as times goes on. The document does not guarantee an automatic better life for all, but you have to fight for your space like us South Africans as we are still doing it today. Those who say is pointless to go home and vote are making a mistake as their decision of not voting will still work against them,” said Theys. Mr Jacob Matakanye from Musina Legal Advice Centre also urged Zimbabwean nationals to go and vote “Yes” during the referendum and elections. “If you want to see changes back home, make sure that you and your families, Mr Madock Chirasa makes his point while Ms Diana Zimbudzana of the Zimbabwe Exile together with friends, are Forum, Ms Dorcas Sibanda and Mr Jacob Matakanye look on. voting during elections.”

“Keep your hands off our town” Members of the community of the Greater Giyani Mu nicipality staged a march from Giyani Stadium to the Mopani District Municipal ity’s offices last Thursday (8/11) and presented a memo randum of grievances to the district municipality. Among the grievances, residents claimed there was a “deliberately downgrading of Giyani by moving some offices from their area to Tzaneen.” Presenting a memorandum under the banner of the Greater Giyani People’s Voice, Mr Tsietsi Nkondo said they had watched with dismay when their
area was being treated unfairly. Complaints against the district as cited in the memorandum was that there were “actions from the district municipality that impacted on the self-worth, dignity, welfare and the economic growth of the Greater Giyani community.” They complained that there were attempts to shrink the Greater Giyani Municipality, following new demarcation proposals released on February 12 by the Municipal Demarcation Board, which transfers some villages from Greater Giyani to Greater Tzaneen. They also claimed that the
Mopani district was relocating some offices from Greater Giyani to Tzaneen in order to make sure that Giyani does not develop. Nkondo said there was a feeling in Giyani that appointments in the district were not transparent. “There is also unfairness and lack of transparency in the awarding of tenders, resulting in the majority of tenders excluding people from Giyani,” said Nkondo. He added that the naming and changing of names of structures and sites were done without consulting the community. The secretary of the committee, Mr Johannes Mabunda, said the people of Giyani, including traditional leaders, were supportive of the present government and its leadership. “We are dismayed by the attitude of some leaders in our district who undermine the people of Giyani and this is what made us decide to march,” said Mabunda. In the memorandum, they say the district must The district municipality’s mayor, Joshua Matlou, with the Giyani meet them within 14 People’s Voice leader Mr Johannes Mabunda, left, and Mr Tsetsi days to resolve the issue.

Horrific accident claims four City players After playing to a 1-1 draw with FC AK at the Oscar Mphetha Stadium in Turfloop on Sunday afternoon, the bus of Polokwane City Football Club was involved in a horrific ac cident at Nobody, just outside Polokwane. Four players, Koketso Takalo (20), Robert Mphuthi (21), Moeketsi Nthete (23) and Sylvester Mpaketsane (27), died at the scene. According to the chairman of the club, Mr Johnny
Mogalagathi, they will be buried at different places this weekend. In a message to the players’ families and friends, the president of Safa, Mr Kirsten Nematandani, said life was too precious to be lost “just like that” and that coming so soon after the passing away of Bafana Bafana assistant coach Thomas Madigage in another road accident, this incident was difficult to grasp. He added that the deah of the
four players was sad, painful and difficult for relatives, friends and the South African football fraternity. He wished the injured a speedy recovery. “To those who are battling injuries in hospital, our prayers go to them to get well soon,” he added. In a statement, the provincial executive council of the ANCYL in Limpopo also sent its condolences to the next-of-kin of the deceased soccer players.

“Accept and love the mental patients” The MEC for Health and Social Development in Limpopo, Dr Norman Mabasa, has urged the community to respect mental health patients and give them the necessary support. Speaking to the community during the Mphephu Mental Health Day celebrations held at Dzanani, a fortnight ago, Mabasa said the community should change their attitude towards mental health patients “because some of their bad actions were committed instinctively.

5 Years in jail for Malawian car thief One of the nine Malawians who were recently arrested by the police at Beit Bridge for being involved in a well-orchestrated car-theft and smuggling syn dicate was jailed for five years last Friday. Eight others are expected to stand trial today (Friday). Seven top-of-the-range vehicles stolen from South Africa and later smuggled into Zimbabwe were recovered from the suspects, following their arrest in August. The vehicles were being smuggled from South Africa through an illegal crossing point along the Limpopo River. The seven were arrested in Beit Bridge town during a routine border operation along the Limpopo River.

Border jumpers raped and intimidated About three out of 10 Zimbabwean women are gang-raped when they try to cross the Limpopo River to South Africa. This was revealed by Prof Lesiba Matsaung of the United Reformed Church and founder of a boys’ and girls’ shelter in Nancefield, Musina. Matsaung said his girls’ shelter received between 20 and 30 females every week, while the boys’ shelter received between 30 and 50 men every week. “All of them jumped the border between Zimbabwe and South Africa illegally. Some of the females are as young as 13. When they arrive here, some tell us that they were gang-raped at the border. Some are also raped here in Musina by people who lure them to secluded areas after promising to help them with shelter, jobs and food,” said Matsaung. However, Matsaung said most of the people who reveal their ordeal are young women. Elderly women, especially married ones, do not want to disclose their ordeal because they are afraid that
their partners or husbands will dump them. “Young women are the ones who inform us about their ordeal. We then take them to Musina Hospital for treatment. We also have people who offer counselling to the rape victims,” he added. He emphasised that most of them do not want to open criminal cases “out of fear for victimisation from the perpetrator. ” He added that many women choose not to reveal their experience, as they are too traumatised and ashamed. Some just reveal it “so that they can get treatment,” said Matsaung. Matsaung, who described the rape incidents as horrible, said some of the people who came into the shelter were suffering from HIV/Aids. “Some of them come in a critical condition and they ended up dying.” Since the shelters started operating in 2008, most of the people come and stay for a while when they arrive before they leave for other places. Most of them have Gauteng as their destination. Many arrive at the centre on their own while others come with police, social workers and officers from Doctors without Border. Because of the high number of women who come into the shelter who are victims of rape, Matsaung said they have now opened a section which accommodates women who are rape victims, so that they can get special treatment and counselling to recover quickly.
A brand activations and entertainment company, the Zinto Activation Group (Zinto), recently donated 10 smartphones to the Limpopo Malaria Control Programme, in support of a research pilot project underway in Vhembe. Funded by the US National Institute of Environmental and Health Sciences and implemented by the provincial health department, the programme intends to improve the monitoring of indoor residual spraying with insecticides. The smartphones will allow researchers to test a GPS-enabled cellphone method (CalFit) that monitors the indoor residual spraying and collects accurate data to determine chemical use. All data is stored on the Android application and can be transferred over the Internet to a secure server, where the data is analysed in real time. The GPS coordinates enable the mapping of the spray plans, while the time stamps help monitor the frequency of spraying in different households. According to Ms Michelle Combrinck, CEO and founder of Zinto, “the partnership is pivotal in the fight against malaria. Each year, more than 250 million cases of malaria are reported worldwide, killing between one and three million people, the majority of whom are young children. We got involved because no infant or person should become infected when there is a clear and available programme to prevent the spread of malaria.”

“Youth League will defend its local leaders” The ANC Youth League has warned that anyone who tries to remove their leaders will face a serious challenge. These strong words came from Vhembe ANC Youth League regional chairperson Rolivhuwa Nelwamondo, in his address during the memorial lecture of former President Thabo Mbeki held at Muratho
Primary in Tshiulungoma village on Sunday. “Anyone who undermines the leadership of Cassel Mathale or Tshitereke Matibe and Tshifhiwa Dali will face a serious challenge from us, the Youth League.” He described the leaders as friends of the Youth League. “We put them there. No
one will remove them.” He added that everyone who wanted to remove them “will have to deal with us first.” Referring to the expelled former president of the youth league, Mr Julius Malema, Nelwamondo said many of the members of the youth league “are still pushing his ideology.” Nelwamondo, who described Mbeki as one of the best leaders produced by the ANC, accused Pres Jacob Zuma of limiting the ruling party to Kwazulu Natal. He said ANC members had a duty to reclaim the party “which is growing its membership because of IFP members.” Nelwamondo said branches must nominate Mr Kgalema Motlanthe to make sure that change was real. Nelwamondo added that the “land must come back to the majority of South Africans and mines must benefit the community, not individuals.” He also lashed out at councillors who forgot the people who voted them into office “and start driving flashy cars, while the community is suffering. If you are a leader and fail to help people, we Vhembe ANC Youth League regional chairperson Mr Rolivhuwa Nelwamondo will make sure that you also suffer with them,” he added. says the ANCYL will defend its local leaders.

New house for mental patients The Mphephu Royal Council and Masana Private FET College celebrated Mental Health Day in style by donating a house to a patient. The royal family and college donated a fourroomed house to Mr
Daniel Mukhoro of Tshirolwe Extension 3 in Nzhelele, outside Makhado, during a ceremony a fortnight ago. The MEC for Health and Social Development, Dr Norman Mabasa, officially handed the house to Ms Miriam Mukhoro, who accepted the house on behalf of her son, Daniel (25). The house consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen, a dining room and a bathroom. The handing-over ceremony was also attended by Mr David Mavhungu Mphephu (who represented King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana), Cllr Esther Makhumisane (who represented Vhembe Executive Mayor Tshitereke Matibe) and Makhado Mayor David Mutavhatsindi. Speaking on behalf of the family, Ms Miriam Mukhoro said she was thankful to God that she was no longer going to share a one-roomed shack with her family of three, two girls and a boy. She said they relied on Daniel’s social grant as no one in the family was employed. Mr Phineus Muladi, the owner of Masana, appealed to the family to look after the house. He also challenged Vhembe District Municipality to provide water to the family. MEC Mabasa applauded the royal family and Masana for their good gesture. He urged other businesspeople to help in their areas. Letter
40-year-old man in court for sexual assault of boy A 40-year-old resident from Dulibadzimu in Beit Bridge appeared in court last Friday for allegedly sodomising his neighbour’s threeyear-old boy. He was not asked to plead to an aggravated sexual assault charge when he appeared before Magistrage Gloria Takundwa. The State later preferred to proceed with the matter under the Mental Health Act and the case was postponed for further investigations. The prosecutor, Mr Tawonga Musina, told the court that on the day of the alleged incident, the boy’s mother went to the local bus terminus at around 15:00. She left the toddler playing with other children. The accused allegedly took advantage of the situation and took the boy to his house, where he molested him. The issue came to light when the boy’s mother returned and the boy told her what had happened. The matter was reported to the police, leading to the arrest of the accused. Letter

Giyani Hotspurs were simply too hot for Rospa United FC
Zero Fake vs United
Giyani Hotspurs proved to be too hot for Rospa United, when they narrowly beat them 1-0 in a Safa Second Division match at the Giyani Stadium on Saturday. Rospa gave the home side no time to breathe as they approached the game aggressively with their playmaker, Marks Munyai, distributing defence-splitting passes from time to time. Realising that it would be dif-
Eight matches under the banner of the Safa Second Division League will be played throughout the province tomorrow after noon. It remains to be seen whether Rospa United will make Baobab Zero Fake pay for their defeat last weekend. United will host Zero Fake at the Malamulele Stadium. Rospa United were beaten 0-1 by Giyani Hotspurs at the Giyani Stadium last Saturday. The captain of United, Mashudu Mashapha, said they regarded the defeat as part of history. Zero Fake are the rookies in the Second Division League and they are still battling to find a winning combination. The other fixtures are: Basel FC vs Lephalale Young Killers; Nobela All Stars vs Ray Pillars; Baroka FC vs Giyani Hotspurs; Winners Park vs The Dolphins; Phungo All Stars vs Blue Rocks; Magezi FC vs Modimolle Aces, while Masesetjane All Stars will have a date with Mighty FC at the Mahwelereng Stadium.
ficult for them to cope with the tempo of the game, the coach of Hotspurs, Mr Dennis “Ghost” Madzimbane, instructed his players to cool the game down, while studying the opponents’ weak and strong points. The referee, Mr Jelly Chabane, reprimanded Ndumeliso Mabulele of United with a card for a repeated infringement on Lesley Malungani. Hotspurs gained momentum with time
and started to make some threatening moves from behind. Things turned against United towards the end of the first half. At that stage, Hotspurs were unstoppable and creating dangerous moves in the middle of the park. The keeper of United, Thembe Maweni, denied Hotspurs a goal in the 38th minute. He stretched to the limit to execute a brilliant save after Thabo Ngomane tried his luck from the 25-meter area. Sydney Maluleke of Hotspurs was
also booked for ignoring the referee’s whistle in the 58th minute. Maluleke kicked the ball away long after the referee had blown the whistle for an offside. Hotspurs took the lead when the keeper of United, Thembe Maweni, abandoned his position and advanced out of the penalty area. Nhlamulo Maluleke of Hotspurs caught him napping and scored with a volley. United lost hope after the Spurs’ goal.
Nine to compete Sparks are expected to fly when the nine teams currently in the top positions in the Safa Vhembe SAB streams will play their Nedbank cup matches at the Makwarela Stadium on Saturday and Sunday. The winner will represent the region in the provincial championships. According to the administrator of the league, Mr Mulalo Mafenya, the final of the competition in the Vhembe region will be played on the 27th of this month at the Tshifulanani Stadium. The teams which will represent their streams are: Khakhanwa United (A), Mukula Young Santos (B), Maranhe Hungry Lion (C), Tshakhuma RO (D), Benny's Care Academy (E), Mudziafera Blue Ngelekanyo Mudau of United (left) and Vincent Mavunda of Hotspurs Elias Hlabanelo of United (left) and Thabo Ngomane of Hotspurs chase Eagles (F), Rabali Pull Together (G), Lambvi (H) and Tshandama Try Together (I). have lost sight of the ball. the outgoing ball.

“Work hard and take education seriously” Pupils from Mbaleni Prima ry School near Makwarela were urged to work hard and take education seriously as a weapon to defeat poverty and unemployment. The call was made by the principal, Ms Helen Masotsha, during the school’s Grade 4 farewell and awarding ceremony for the best teachers and pupils on Friday.
Mbaleni Primary School has 585 pupils from Grade R to Grade 4 and they hold an annual motivation function for pupils who will be attending other schools next year. “At the beginning of every year, our teachers set up some goals that we need to achieve during the academic year. We encourage each other to do our
best to create an atmosphere conducive to learning in our school,” said Masotsha. According to her, quality teaching could attract many parents to send their children to the school. “We want to nurture our young pupils to take education seriously, so that they can better their future,” she added. The “graduates” of the Jungle Club Preschool in Elim on the stage at the school’s year-end concert on 9 November. They are ready for school next year! With them is their teacher, Ms Claudette Gradwell.

Good old days revived during celebration Senior citizens who attended the recent local Thulamela Sen ior Citizens celebrations said the event had changed their lives and they felt like useful people again. The celebrations, which were a build-up to the district event, were held last Wednesday. Hundreds of elderly people from all over the municipality filled the local Thohoyandou Town Hall, where they enjoyed the meals and having fun to-
gether. The organiser of the event, Ms Shibombi Mkhari, said the day was a special one on the calendar of the municipality and was celebrated on an annual basis when old people were brought together. “During this day, the elderly are able to interact with each other. They can meet long-lost friends and have a chance to revive those good old memories. We are giving hope to the elderly, so that they should not feel neglected.

We want them to know that we care for them and that we treasure their contributions as they are the ones who made us what we are today,” she said. Ms Nyamukamadi Mudau (68) of Tshakhuma said the day was worth it. “We are always confined to our own homes and feel neglected when we are on our own. Now that we spent the whole day interacting with each other, we feel rejuvenated,” she said.
The four-year-olds dressed in bright yellow performed Shosoloza at the annual concert of Jungle Club Preschool in Elim on 9 November and received lots of applause. Crime

Community Forum is making a difference The Life After Prison Com munity Forum, a non-profit organisation that assists pris oners and ex-prisoners and prepares them for life outside prison, continues to make a dif ference in the community. The organisation, founded by, among others, Pastor Ndikandafhi Makhuvha, made its presence felt when they joined hands with communities in community initiatives. They have assisted in painting walls at Bosasa in Malamulele and have also given many former prisoners the tools with which to start their lives all over again upon their release. Many of those they have assisted with reintegration into the
community are now making a meaningful contribution to their communities and the country as a whole. The organization, which was recently started in Vhembe, has made its presence felt all over the country. Not long ago, they handed over working tools to recently released prisoners in Pretoria. Only a week ago, they initiated a campaign to clean up the bushes in the Matangari-Dube area. The area has been plagued by thugs who were terrorising the community, and more than 14 residents have been robbed or raped in the area. The campaign started with a prayer for God to end acts of crime in the area. Makhuvha

A 27-year-old Beit Bridge resident, who was recently arrested during a routine border operation target ing mainly smugglers and border jumpers, was fined R20 000 or 10 months in jail on Monday for illegal possession of 107 boxes of Remington Gold cigarettes, worth more than R240 000. It is suspected that he intended to smuggle the cigarettes into South Africa through undesignated entry points along the Limpopo River. Langton Ribombo of Dulibadzimu township in the border town was convicted on his own plea of guilty on a charge of illegal possession of goods liable to excise duty payment as defined in section 184 (1) of the Customs and Excise Act by a local magistrate, Ms Gloria Takundwa. His co-accused, Mellessina Nguluvhe (50), a local businesswoman, had her charges withdrawn after the State failed to prove its case against
her. Nguluvhe, in whose homestead the cigarettes were found hidden, had pleaded not guilty to the same charge. The cigarettes were forfeited to the State as part of the sentence. The prosecutor, Miss Memory Mandityira, said that, on 1 November, the police received a tip-off that there were boxes of cigarettes hidden at a homestead in Lutumba village. They then teamed up with Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) officials and raided the homestead, during which they found 107 boxes of cigarettes, branded Remington Gold, hidden in one of the huts. Investigations led to the arrest of Ribombo and Nguluvhe. The two were asked by ZIMRA officials to produce documents to prove that they had paid excise duty in line with the customs procedures and they failed to do so, leading to their arrest.

Black Aces still on top of log Several National First Division matches took place over the week end. Witbank Spurs came back from a 1-2 half-time deficit to beat FC Cape Town 3-2 at the Puma Rugby Stadium in Witbank. The match between Jomo Cosmos and Sivutsa Stars, which was supposed to have been played at the Kanyamazane Stadium in Nelspruit, did not take place. Heavy showers started pouring in the area about three hours before the kick-off time and the pitch was waterlogged. Dynamos continued to donate points to their opponents. They lost 01 to United FC at the Giyani Stadium on Sunday. It was a second consecutive home defeat for Dynamos. Christopher Makhoba and Sifiso Hlanthi scored the two goals when Thanda Royal Zulu beat Vasco
da Gama 2-0 at the Richards Bay Stadium, but Roses United failed to impress their home crowd. They lost 0-1 to Santos at the Botshabelo Stadium . Mpumalanga Black Aces are still leading the pack after beating Milano United FC 3-2 at the Grassy Park Stadium. Blackburn Rovers and African Warriors shared the glory when they played to a 1-1 draw at the Buffalo City Stadium. After playing to a 1-1 draw with FC AK at the Oscar Mphetha Stadium in Turfloop on Sunday afternoon, the bus in which the players of Polokwane City was driving back to their club house in Polokwane, was involved in a horrific accident. Four local players were killed in the accident. (See a report elsewhere in the paper).

Struggling Dynamos donate more points Msesenya Stars hold Phungo to a draw Dynamos gave away more league points, when they lost 0-1 to United FC in their Na tional First Division League match at the Giyani Stadium on Sunday afternoon. As if they were going to bury their opponents alive, Dynamos approached the game like a house on fire. The visitors from the Free State spent the first 20 minutes of the game running for cover. Although Dynamos
were playing beautiful football in the first half, their captain, Tsepo Mabitsela, was out of touch. The team’s technical staff committed a blunder by taking too long to replace him. The home side effected the first change to their starting lineup by introducing Skumbuzo Mdletshe for Meshack Mthimunye in the 34th minute. Xolani Zuma of United was reprimanded with a card, following
a late tackle on Abraham Nkadimeng four minutes towards half time. Unlike the first half, where they were dictating terms in all departments, the second half saw Dynamos playing defensive football. At that stage, United were firing on all cylinders, giving the defence of Dynamos no time to breathe. Pressure continued to mount on the defence of Dynamos and their keeper, Edward Lesu, was consequently forced to advance out of his penalty box, from where he handled the ball. He was lucky to escape with yellow. The goal which separated the boys from the men came in the 67th minute. Siyabulela Shai beat the offside trap and showed the keeper the wrong way. Dynamos lost hope when they were reduced to 10 men. Their midfielder, Edwin Xaba, was given his marching orders, following a second infringement in the 70th minute. Siyabulela Shai of United came close to scoring again four minutes before the final whistle. He shot wide from close Shadrack Moloto of Dynamos (right) Alfred Lekata of United wrestle range with the keeper to win the ball. already beaten.
Msesenya All Stars held Phungo All Stars to 1-all draw in their Safa second-division match at the Eltivillas grounds on Saturday. Phungo was the superior side from the onset as far as possession of the ball was concerned. This resulted in their putting more pressure on the defence of Stars for the better part of the match. Thulani Xaba of Phungo scored after he received a beautiful pass from Dion Phiri. Realising that their midfield was weary, the technical department of Stars introduced Madimetja Lesu for Phumudzo Ramagoma. The half-time score was 1-0 in favour of the home team. The second half was characterised by dangerous play from the home team’ s players. In an attempt to calm the situation, the referee flashed some yellow cards in quick succession. Todani Nkhumeleni and Thulani Xaba of the home team were booked for the
application of dirty tricks and dangerous play. The keeper of the home team, Reason Mbedzi, was red-carded for a second bookable offence. If a soccer match could be won through the number of scoring chances a team creates, Phungo would have won the match convincingly. Their strikers wasted many opportunities. The referee surprised everyone when he added 20 minutes after normal time. Stevens Goovadia equalised through a penalty late in the match, and shortly before the final whistle, Justice Rasebotsa of Stars was given his marching orders for rough play.

Black Leopards came back from their match of points. They beat the “Urban Warriors” 10 against Ajax Cape Town with a full compliment in their Absa Premiership League match at the Cape Town Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The home side enjoyed more ball possession for the better part of the first half. Despite some attractive football, the Capetonians were unable to turn their superiority into goals and, as a result, the Leopards keeper, Azwinndini Maphaha, was never overly stretched during that half. The only time when Maphaha’s presence was felt in the first half was when he advanced out of the penalty box and blocked Khama Billiant’s way before he could unleash. Billiant, the Zimbabwean international, was Ajax’s biggest threat. He came close to scoring again in the 24th minute, but his shot from 25 yards did not have enough power to beat the slender keeper. Lidoda Duvha took control of the game towards the end of the first half. They created a number of clear scoring chances, but Lady Luck was not on their side. The home side were gifted with a chance to take the lead in the 58th minute. A defender of Leopards, Siphamandla Sithole, impeded Khama Billinat within the box. The referee awarded a penalty to the hosts, but Lebohang Manyama’s attempt was weak and Leopards’ keeper was able to make a comfortable save. The Limpopo side scored the much-awaited goal 10 minutes before full time. They scored against the run of play, when the Ajax defender, Thulani Hlatshwayo of Ajax Cape Town beats Khethowakhe Masuku Aiden Jenniker’s, back header was intercepted by of Black Leopards to the ball. ©Ryan Wilkisky/BackpagePix.
