Makhado residents up in arms as taps dry up due to unannounced maintenance to reservoirs

No bucket, no water By Isabel Venter

Guaranteed service delivery for all … just bring your own bucket. Water service delivery in the Makhado municipal area again came under fire the past week with taps running dry for days on end. Many residents only realized that there was no water, when their storage tanks started running dry. Tshikota residents were also spotted last Friday frantically trying to fill empty containers with water from a municipal tanker, claiming that they have been without a single drop of water for three weeks. (Log on to www.zoutnet.co.za to watch the video clip) As to the reason for the problem, Makhado municipal spokesperson Mr Louis Bobodi dropped off a press release at the offices of the Zoutpansberger in Friday, explaining that the Vhembe District Municipality embarked on a reservoir maintenance plan that will interrupt the normal supply of water. The release was dated two days earlier. According to the release, the maintenance plan entails the cleaning of three Albasini dam pump stations, as well as

an additional eight reservoirs in Louis Trichardt. These reservoirs include the Mowkop, Hospital, Extension 7 and Railway pump station as well as the four reservoirs in Berg Street. In their release the Vhembe Municipality explains that the cleaning programme forms part of their “goal to supply every household with an adequate and reliable water supply.” From Monday to Tuesday the three pump stations were cleaned, thereafter the Mowkop reservoir on Wednesday and Thursday and the remaining reservoirs from 26 to 30 May. Confusion, however, exists regarding which parts of town and surrounding areas will be affected and for how long. According to a source close to the cleaning programme, water will be pumped directly from the Albasini dam into the existing supply pipeline for the duration of the programme. This is allegedly due to the fact that the reservoirs will apparently be emptied out. Both the Makhado and Vhembe Municipalities were contacted to provide further details regarding the programme.

“We are faced with challenges in respect of water, and are struggling to cope”

Questions asked included which parts of town will be affected during the cleaning programme, when maintenance work will be completed, and why Tshikota has been without water for three weeks. Answers provided by the respective municipal spokespersons, however, only seemed to further dent the already fragile reputations of both municipalities when it comes to water service delivery. “We are faced with challenges in respect of water, and are struggling to cope,” said Mr Ralushai Matodzi, spokesperson for the district municipality on Tuesday. He acknowledged that the municipality is “disappointing a lot of people” and said that “Since Monday, we received many, many complaints from the public.” Bobodi in turn responded that he was not aware of the water crisis currently experienced by Tshikota residents. “If that is the case [no water], I was not aware of the challenges,” he said on Monday. He then referred all further media questions to Matodzi because the Makhado Municipality is no longer responsible for water. Asked where residents can find municipal water trucks, Bobodi referred the issue to the municipality’s assistant manager for water services, Mr David Mukosi, who is responsible for the deployment of the emergency water trucks. He responded by saying that residents should phone the trucks themselves if they want to know These people, most of them residents from Tshikota, were spotted where they are. The number given was frantically trying to fill empty containers with water last Friday, They claimed they have been without water for the past three weeks. 082 941 8171.

Levubu-boer (60) oorleef mesaanval ‘n Bekende boer van die Levubu-omgewing het die jongste slagoffer geword van ‘n gewelddadige plaasaanval. Mnr. Neels Maritz (60) wat in die Beaufortomgewing van Levubu boer, is Maandagaand deur ‘n aanvaller by sy plaashek voorgelê. ‘n Vriend van Maritz, mnr. Choppies Vosloo, het Dinsdag aan die Zoutpansberger vertel wat gebeur het. Maritz was op pad van vriende se verjaarsdagpartytjie en het ongeveer 20:30 by sy huis aangekom. Dit was toe hy terugstap na sy hek toe, dat die aanvaller hom voorkeer en ‘n mes uitgepluk het. ‘n Struweling het tussen Maritz en die aanvaller ontstaan, waar tydens Maritz ernstige steekwonde Rescue workers had to rush last Friday to free the driver of this truck, after he had allegedly lost aan sy regterhand opgedoen het. control and the truck overturned on the Thohoyandou road. The cab of the truck was crushed Vosloo sê dat Maritz, wat sy vuurwapen by when the truck hit and uprooted a tree, pinning the driver inside the cab. Bleeding badly, the hom dra, gesukkel het om met die beseerde hand driver was hurried to the Louis Trichardt Memorial Hospital, where he was later discharged. die wapen by te kom. Dié het die aanvaller glo in die struweling by Maritz afgeneem en op die vlug geslaan daarmee. Maritz het vir Vosloo en nog ‘n vriend, mnr. Theuns Theunissen, geskakel om te kom help. Hulle het hom dadelik na die Zoutpansberg Privaat­ hospitaal gejaag, waar hy behandeling ontvang het vir die steekwonde. Maritz is Dinsdagmiddag oorgeplaas na die MediClinic in Polokwane, waar hy ‘n noodoperasie ontvang het om twee van sy vingers aan sy regterhand te heg. Vosloo het Woensdagoggend bevestig dat die operasie goed afgeloop het en dat Maritz steeds aangesterk het in die hospitaal. AO Solly Muklola, woordvoerder van die Levubu SAPS, het by navraag gesê hulle ondersoek ‘n saak van huisbraak. Teen Woensdag is daar nog geen arrestasie gemaak nie. Die aanval op Maritz volg ná ‘n vrou, ook van Levubu, deur vyf mans aangeval en vasgebind is by haar huis verlede Vrydag. Mev. Anett Fritz was alleen by die huis gewees en besig om kos uit Students from the Bravo Christian School in Louis Trichardt also supported the Wear-to-Care te skep vir die honde toe ‘n man haar genader het. project of the local Vrouefederasie.

Haar aanvallers het laat spaander toe hulle agtergekom het dat sy haar paniekknoppie, wat sy in haar sak dra, gedruk het. Volgens Fritz, wat saam met haar gesin drie maande gelede na Levubu verhuis het, vermoed hulle dit is dieselfde mense wat ‘n week vantevore by hulle huis ingebreek het. “Dit is nie iets waaraan mens rêrig wil dink nie. Ek is net bly dinge het nie erger uitgedraai nie...” het Fritz Woensdag gesê.

Dr. Philip Venter van die NG Kerk Sout­ pansberg-gemeente in Louis Trichardt is vandeesmaand reeds 25 jaar leraar in diens van dié gemeente. Dié besonderse mylpaal is verlede Sondag gesellig herdenk. Ds. Venter is in Mei 1987 in die gemeente bevestig. Hy het opgemerk dat een gemeentelid onlangs beweer het dat hy reeds 43 van haar kinders, kleinkinders en agter-klein­kinders gedoop het. Hy het in die tydperk twee doktorsgrade verwerf en met die stig­ting van die plaaslike leraarsforum ‘n leidende rol gespeel.

Kuns het nog nooit so lekker gesmaak Almond Enterprises het die begin van die jaar ontstaan toe die eienaar, Erika Grobler, haar stokperdjie en groot liefde vir spesiale gebak en kunswerk in ‘n besigheid omskep het. Sy het ook die talent om vir mense haar vaardighede aan te leer. “Met al die gebakkery en handwerkpersentjies vir verjaarsdae en vriende se ooievaarstees en

kombuistees het ek die behoefte in die gemeenskap raakgesien om my stokperdjie in alle erns te bedryf,” sê Erika. Erika soek altyd na unieke maniere om die gebak en handkuns mooi en esteties aan te bied. Sy kom met ouike idees vorendag, soos die die “Erika-pops” en die “Manna-koekies” wat ‘n persoonlike boodskap of uitnodiging binne-in het. Dit kan gebruik word vir verjaarsdae, herdenkings, kinderpartytjies of enige geleentheid waar daar ‘n boodskap by betrokke is. Nog ‘n voorbeeld is die “Gourmet Apples” wat kan dien as ‘n bedankingsgeskenkie by troues. Dit is maar ‘n paar van die unieke gebak items wat beskikbaar is. Vir haar handkuns het Erika die gebruik van “tekstuur pasta-sement” ontwikkel en versier daarmee verskillende kruise en doeke met persoonlike boodskappe. “ My lampskerms, wat gemaak word volgens die voorskrifte en behoefte van die kliënt, is ook baie populêr,” sê Erika, wat in Waterpoort woon, maar oor ‘n wye gebied werk. Almond Enterprises het op 15 Mei haar gebakte kuns en handwerk in Louis Trichardt by die Louis Trichardt Tuinbouklub uitgestal. Erika gaan ook in die nabye toekoms slypskole aanbied om die verskeie handwerktegnieke aan belangstellendes bekend te stel. Die teikenmark van Almond Enterprises is redelik verspreid as gevolg van die groot verskeidenheid items wat beskikbaar is. Vir verdere navrae, bestelling of besprekings van werkswinkels of bekendstellings, kan Erika by 078 100 6191 geskakel word.

Swendelaars buit helfte van pensioen Om vir 46 jaar lank te werk vir jou pensioenuitbetaling en dan bykans die helfte daarvan in een dag te verloor, is ‘n bitter pil om te sluk. As jy uit jou geld bedrieg is weens jou vertroue in “staatsamptenare”, is dit nog erger. Personeel van Laerskool Louis Trichardt het hierdie week met skok reageer op die nuus dat so ‘n onsmaaklikheid een van hul getroue werknemers te beurt geval het. Die werknemer, wat nie geïdentifiseer wil word nie, het ná sy aftrede weer by die skool begin werk in ‘n beheerraadspos. Sy pensioen is die vorige week in sy bankrekening inbetaal. Om ongeveer 11:00 op 17 Mei het twee goedgeklede vroue by die skool opgedaag en hulle voorgedoen as departementele amptenare. Mnr. Greg Stewart onthou dat albei redelik geset was en dat die een goed Afrikaans kon praat. Hulle het vir die slagoffer gesê dat daar nog ‘n gedeelte van sy pensioen is wat die departement hom nog skuld en dat hy saam met hulle na Polokwane moet ry om daarvoor te gaan teken. Hulle het ‘n “amptelike” dokument getoon met sy naam, identiteits­ nommer en huisadres daarop. Hulle het gesê dat daar nog ander mense ook is wat gaan. By die spoggerige wit motor gekom, het hy gesien dat daar reeds twee mans in die kar sit. Op pad het hulle sy selfoon gevra en dit skynbaar bewonder. Intussen het hulle ongesiens die SIM-kaart

verwyder en die foon teruggegee. Naby Polokwane het hulle gesê dat hulle eers sal moet bank toe gaan, sodat hy kan geld trek om te wys daar is aktiwiteit op sy bankrekening. In daardie stadium het die slagoffer al ongemaklik begin voel, maar uit vrees besluit om maar eerder saam te speel. By ABSA Bank in Polokwane het die een vrou ‘n ontrekkingsvormpie ingevul en hom aangesê om dit te onderteken. Nadat die geld getrek is, het een van die mans die geld in ‘n sak gesit en almal het soos blits verdwyn. “Ek is dankbaar dat ek met my lewe daarvan afgekom het,” het die slagoffer gesê. Hy het gelukkig geld vir ‘n huurmotor gehad om terug te kom. “Ons was so bekommerd en magteloos, want ons kon hom nie kontak nie. Ons het intussen agtergekom dat hy in lewensgevaar kan wees, want iemand het sy dogter gebel en gesê dat ‘n groot bedrag uit haar pa se bankrekening onttrek is. Die dogter het aanbeveel dat haar pa se suster, wat ook by die skool werk, geskakel word. Die suster het onraad gemerk en ons in kennis gestel. Ons het inderhaas teen ongeveer 15:00 sy bankrekening gesluit en ‘n saak by die polisie oopgemaak,” het die skoolhoof, mnr. Louis Linde, gesê. Groot was hul vreugde toe die slagoffer se suster en me. Irene Adendorff om 16:30 met die motor ry en haar broer kry waar hy langs die pad stap. Hy was erg getraumatiseerd. “Om te dink jy

werk jou lewe lank om dit in ‘n oogwink te verloor. Ek ken hom al 24 jaar lank. Hy het vier skool­ hoofde geken,” sê Adendorff, wat hom die volgende dag by die bank en die aanklagkantoor bygestaan het. Kaptein Maano Sadiki, woordvoerder van die Makhado SAPS, het ná die voorval pensioenarisse gemaan om baie versigtig te wees en eers ondersoek in te stel na mense wat hulle sogenaamd wil bystaan. Sadiki het gesê dat hulle vroeër vanjaar ook ‘n pensioen bedrogsaak gehad het, wat hulle by die handelsmisdaadeenheid Hoërskool Louis Trichardt het die gewilde Mnr. en Mej. Triegie-kroning tydens ‘n gala aangegee het, maar dat daar nog geleentheid op 16 Mei aangebied. Die kroon vir Mej. Triegie 2012 word vanjaar gedra deur geen arrestasies gemaak is nie.

The final score in the trial of senior regional magistrate Ronnie Rambau (photo), accused of accepting a bribe to influence the outcome of a court case, remains to be settled. The corruption trial against Rambau and his coaccused, attorney T E Lubisi and state prosecutor Estene Willemse, continued in Musina this week. All three appeared in the Musina Magistrate’s Court on Monday. They were arrested during a police trap and stand accused of influencing the outcome of certain court cases.

Australian government says no to pardon The Australian government will no longer support any action to pardon “Breaker” Morant and Peter Handcock, who were executed by a British firing squad for murdering South Africans during the Anglo Boer War. “Breaker” Morant became a legend in Australia and the topic of a comprehensive publication in South Africa by author Charles Leach of the Soutpansberg area where most of the skirmishes of Morant’s unit, the Bushveldt Carbineers (BVC), took place. The book is titled The Legend of Breaker Morant is DEAD and BURIED – a South African version of the Bushveldt Carbineers in the Zoutpansberg, May 1901 –April 1902. Leach is now regarded as the top historian on that topic and period. His research revealed that there were at least 35 murders committed by the BVC. No wonder it was a day for celebration when Leach learnt about the announcement of the new attorney-general (AG) Nicola Roxon. She said that the campaign to persuade Britain to pardon Morant and Hand-

cock, driven by Australian military lawyer Commander James Unkles, will no longer be pursued by the Australian government. On the day of Roxon’s announcement in the Australian press (10 May), Leach celebrated with Advocate Peter Latta, the legal researcher of the Zoutpansberg Skirmishes foundation, of which Leach is a founder member. Latta wrote a letter to the previous AG of Australia, Robert McLelland, to confirm whether the Australian government supported the war crimes for which Morant and Handcock had been convicted and whether it supported the pardon campaign. Roxon most probably read this letter when she brought herself up to date with this case. “If Australia supported the crimes by Morant and the others, they would have condoned war crimes, where African and European South Africans and a German missionary were massacred. Their ‘no’ amounts to an endorsement of a human rights principle. If they had supported the pardon campaign, it would

have been a gross violation against the descendants of the murdered,” Adv Latta said. Commander Unkles is said to still pursue his mission to get Morant pardoned and to have the intention of approaching the British Court of Appeal on his own, without the support of the Australian government. Latta said that it would cost millions. Leach said that the extreme efforts of Andries Pretorius, living in Australia, needed to be saluted. Pretorius applied pressure against the pardon initiative by means of the Internet and letters to the Australian AG and the British government. In the meantime, the ripple effect of Leach’s research is still spreading. People are still sending in information. One important document that was discovered is the handwritten will of Harry Harbourd Morant, Breaker’s real name. Morant had no descendants in Australia and left most of what he had to a beneficiary in England. “Unfortunately, it was too late for inclusion in my book!” said Leach.

Adv Peter Latta (left) and Mr Charles Leach met at Gateway Inn on 10 May to celebrate the victory for human rights when the Australian government said that they would take no action in the pardon petition for Breaker Morant, whose Bushveldt Carbineer unit committed 35 murders (war crimes) in the Anglo Boer war.

Nuwe omslagprys vir Zoutpansberger Die omslagprys van die Zoutpansberger verhoog vanaf 1 Junie na R4,00. Dit sal die eerste prysverho­ ging wees in bykans vier jaar. Die koerant se omslagprys was sedert middel-2008 R3,00. Die prysstyging word egter nie geblameer op ‘n swak rand, stygende brandstofkoste of dreigemente van meer toltarie­ we nie. “Alhoewel ons ook gebuk gaan onder druk van prysverhogings, is daar ‘n heel ander re­de vir die besluit om die om­slagprys te verhoog,” sê An­ton van Zyl, bestuurder van Zoutnet, die uitgewers van die

Zoutpansberger. “Vir ‘n hele aantal jare al ver­s kaf ons komplimentêre koerante aan instansies soos Ons Tuis­te ouetehuis. Hierdie diens is egter die afgelope paar maande uitgebrei om vir meer pensioenarisse voorsiening te maak, on­der andere die inwo­ ners van Laat Lente en Herfs­ akker,” sê Anton. Dit het egter meegebring dat die getal komplimentêre koerante aan veral pensioenarisse ‘n beduidende invloed op die kostes begin uit­ oefen het. “Drukkostes, asook ander fak­tore soos verspreiding en sa­larisse, styg jaar na jaar.

Die Zoutpansberger is, in teenstelling met sommige ander produkte in die mark, baie trots op die inhoud van elke uitgawe. Om elke week vars, relevante nuus te publiseer is duur, maar dit is iets wat vir ons nie onderhandelbaar is nie,” sê Anton. Om hierdie rede moet die ekstra drukkoste op die komplimentêre koerante verhaal word, en die mees geskikte plek is die omslagprys. “In effek beteken dit dus ons lesers wat betaal vir die koerant borg die pensioena­ risse se koerante. Ons is oortuig daarvan dat hulle nie sal omgee nie,” sê Anton.

Duke now stays in the Soutpansberg

Oom Tielman en tannie Elize Bosch het op 15 Mei hulle 58ste huweliksherdenking gevier, met Oom Tielman wat op 20 Mei sy 84ste verjaarsdag gevier het. Die egpaar het in 1984 ‘n aandeel in So-Ja by Waterpoort gekoop en in 1991 vanaf Pretoria daarheen verhuis. Oom Tielman en Tannie Elize spog met vyf kinders, tien kleinkinders en een agterkleinkind. Hulle familie en vriende het hul voorspoed vir die toekoms toegewens. Foto verskaf.

Leerders van Laerskool Louis Trichardt het, onder leiding van die prefekte, die afgelope maand komberse skool toe gebring as deel van die Jacaranda Winter Warmer projek. Die skool bedank elke kind en ouer wat ‘n kombers gegee het. By die stapel komberse staan die hoofleiers. Van links na regs is Chris van Wyk (hoofseun), Emené Jordaan (hoofmeisie), Leandri Muller (onderhoofmeisie) en André Viljoen (onderhoofseun).

Deur Linda van der Westhuizen

SASSA stel pensionarisse gerus Die South African Social and Security Agency (SASSA) verseker die ontvangers van ouderdoms­ pensioene dat alles in hulle vermoë gedoen word om die herregistrasie vir hulle so gemaklik as moontlik te maak. Die inwerkingstelling van die herregistrasie skuif waarskynlik in sommige gevalle ‘n paar maande aan. Die nuwe sisteem wat deur SASSA geïmplementeer word om maatskaplike toelaes uit te betaal, geskied met behulp van ‘n biometries-gebaseerde betalingsisteem. Dit sal meer sekuriteit verleen, omdat uitbetalings met ‘n kaart en vingerafdruk gedoen word. Die kaart stel die begunstigde in staat om meer opsies vir betaling uit te oefen. Maatskaplike toelaes se geld kan byvoorbeeld getrek word by enige handelaar wat MasterCard onder­ steun. Die R10 miljard kontrak om die uitbetalings vanaf April te doen, is deur SASSA toegeken aan Cash Paymaster Services Eiendoms Bpk, wat op die NASDEQ en JSE gelys is. SASSA se uitbetalingsnorme en -standaarde se norm 5 stel dit duidelik dat alle betaalpunte moet verseker dat basiese fasiliteite soos toilette, water, noodhulpkassies en beskerming te alle tye beskikbaar is (www.sassa.gov.za). Die SASSA streekkantoor in die Vhembe distrik sluit daarby aan en vereis water, stoele, toilette en elektrisiteit by die geboue wat vir herregistrasiedoeleindes geïdentifiseer is. Die herregistrasie program in Limpopo sal duur van Junie tot Desember 2012. “As SASSA

agentskap wil ons ons ouer en gestremde begunstigdes in ‘n veilige omge­wing registreer,” lui ‘n brief van die Vhembe distrikkantoor. Die­ gene wat gewoonlik na betaalpunte gegaan het, moes volgens die oorspronklike beplanning vanaf April soos gewoonlik daarheen gaan om pensioen te ontvang en herregistreer te word. Diegene wie se toelaes in hul bankrekening of by die poskantoor inbetaal word, sal ‘n brief ontvang om hul herregistrasiedatum aan te dui. Hulle sal ook dan ‘n Smart-kaart ontvang. Dit behoort iewers in die periode vanaf Junie tot Desember te gebeur. Die sogenaamde Sekulua kliënte, wat ‘n soort debietkaart gehad het, moes vanaf April begin herregistreer. Mnr. T. D. Muofhe, amptenaar van SASSA se Vhembe streekkantoor, het hierdie week gesê dat die distrikte in Limpopo ingedeel is in die tydperk Junie tot Desember. Die navraag het gegaan oor die Makhado-, Tshikota- en Vleifonteingebied. Hy het gesê dat diegene wie se toelaes by die bank of poskantoor inbetaal word, waarskynlik in Oktober aan die beurt sal kom, maar het beklemtoon dat elke begunstigde ‘n brief in dié verband sal ontvang. Augustus is genoem vir die herregistrasie van diegene wat by betaalpunte toelaes ontvang. In Makhado sal Ons Tuiste se inwoners volgens die oorspronklike skedule vroeg afgehandel word. “Die bejaardes wat oor 75 is, moet nie bekommerd wees nie. Ons sal hulle by hulle huise kom besoek,” het die amptenaar gesê.

Fokus op die mediese bedryf en versekering Finansiële nuus

Hoekom bly lewensdekking steeds vir ons belangrik? Die meeste mense leef asof hulle vir altyd daar gaan wees … miskien omdat ons eie sterflikheid nie iets is waaraan ons graag dink nie. Hoewel ons in die sorgvrye kinderjare daarmee kan wegkom, kan dit ons duur te staan kom as ons as volwassenes die harde werklikheid van lewe en dood in ons finansiële beplanning buite rekening laat, sê Willem Barnard, Besigheidsbestuurder Sanlam Limpopo. Hoekom Lewensdekking? Lewensdekking is waarskynlik die mees ontasbare vorm van alle versekeringsprodukte. “Dit is vir die meeste mense moeilik om te aanvaar en te verstaan hoe dit hulle sal baat om vir iets te betaal wat nie onmiddellike voordele inhou nie, “sê Willem. “Dink egter net ‘n oomblik daaraan en oorweeg die implikasies: Wat sal gebeur as jy more sou sterf? Wie sal jou uitstaande skuld betaal? Wie sal vir jou ouers of jou wederhelf en kinders sorg – nie net oor korttermyn nie, maar ook in die jare vorentoe? Hoe sal jou gesin sonder jou maandelikse inkomste klaarkom? As jy ‘n verbandlening het, sal jou gesin die eiendom kan hou, of sal hulle uiteindelik nie meer ‘n dak oor hul kop hê nie, terwyl hulle nog die hartseer moet verwerk? Sal daar genoeg kontant wees om uitgawes soos die begrafnis, eksekuteursgelde en boedelbelasting te dek? “As jy ‘n verband of motorskuld het, vir jong kinders verantwoordelik is of ‘n belang in ‘n besigheid het, kan lewensversekering help verseker

dat jou geliefdes en/of afhanklikes nie deur jou finansiële verpligtinge lamgelê word nie, en hulle in staat stel om jou skuld te vereffen en hul bestaande leefstyl te handhaaf. As jy ‘n finansiële adviseur vra om jou met ‘n omvattende finansiële ontleding te help, sal dit jou ‘n goeie idee gee van hoeveel dekking jy nodig het.” Wat bied ongeskiktheidsdekking? Jou grootste bate is jou vermoë om ‘n inkomste te verdien. Daarom is dit uiters belangrik om dit te beskerm. Indien jy hetsy tydelik of permanent arbeidsongeskik raak, kan dit ernstige gevolge vir jou geldsake inhou, sê Willem. Volgens die Mediese Navorsingsraad word 150 000 Suid Afrikaners per jaar ernstig beseer in motorongelukke. Sê nou jy word een van hierdie slagoffers? Hoe sal jou onvermoë om aan te hou werk, jou en jou gesin se finansiële posisie raak? Gevreesde siekte-dekking Baie mense maak die fout om te dink dat ‘n mediese fonds genoeg voorsiening maak vir siekte en hospitalisasie. Wat hulle nie besef nie, sê Willem, is dat ‘n ernstige siekte of trauma moontlik nie deur hul mediese fonds gedek word nie. En selfs al word dit gedek, kan die koste op die lang duur baie groter wees as die voordele wat hul mediese fonds verskaf. Die meeste skemas maak nie voorsiening vir nasorg by die huis of by ‘n geskikte inrigting nie. Om sake te vererger, sal jy miskien ‘n geruime tyd ook nie in staat wees om ‘n inkomste te verdien nadat jy deur so iets

getref is nie, of jou siekteverlof kan uitgeput raak. “Met gevreesde-siekte dekking kry jy gemoedsrus dat indien ‘n gevreesde siekte by jou gediagnoseer word, jy die nodige fondse sal hê om jou inkomste te beskerm en voorspruitende mediese of ander koste te dek.” ‘n Tragiese lewensgebeurtenis soos sterfte of ongeskikraking is een van die mees traumatiese ervarings wat mense in hul leeftyd moet hanteer. As jy ‘n uur of twee by ‘n finansiële adviseur spandeer om seker te maak dat jy genoeg dekking het, sal dit verseker dat die bekommernis oor geld nie deel van jou las word nie.

The group of cyclists that part took in the God´s Plan Cycle Tour 2012 are, from left to right, Gavin Thompson, Rian du Preez, Riaan Swanepoel, Tony de Villiers and Nick Cardases. By Isabel Venter

Die Louis Trichardt 4x4-klub het op 19 Mei bietjie gaan sake uitspook by die gemeenskapsentrum in Levubu. Eerste-, tweede- en derdeplekke in die gemodifiseerde klas het gegaan aan onderskeidelik Kobus Otto, Carel Pretorius en Sandra Booysen. In die standaard-klas was Nardus Janse van Rensburg eerste, Brian Jefferies tweede en Dirk Meissenheimer (jr.) derde. Die klub het hul dank uitgespreek teenoor Bertie Jensen, Dakada Heuning. Du Toits Bande. Hi-Q Far North, Latennanda Besproeiing, Levubu Droë Vrugte, Levubu Gemeenskapsentrum, PD Otto Elektries, Peet van der Walt en Stephan Kruger wat as borge opgetree het. Dank is ook uitgespreek teenoor Marie Ferreira, Johan Schutte, Paul Otto, Christa Otto, Riana Otto, Dawie Otto en Frans Pretorius vir hul moeite die dag. Foto verskaf.

God´s Plan cyclists making a difference Pedaling for charity, five cyclists passed through the Soutpansberg on Friday on their way to Beit Bridge. The Zoutpansberger caught up with the team as they stopped to catch their breath and stretch their legs. All of them part took in the God’s Plan Cycle Tour, the brainchild of race coordinator Allan Corry. The God’s Plan tour started on Wednesday when the group departed from Brakpan to cover the 600km to the border town of Musina. Corry had been creating aware­ness for the plight of Zim­ bab­wean residents when Riaan

Swanepoel, one of the cyclists, came on board. He decided to devote his energy to raising funds, which led to the formation of the God’s Plan Tour. Initially, the group aimed to raise enough money to build a school in Zimbabwe. This plan, however, fell through when the group failed to secure property in Zimbabwe on which to build the school. Since then, they have taken the Ankura Academy, a border town school, under their wings. On the first day of the group’s trip, they travelled 166km from Brakpan, passing through Benoni and Pretoria, stopping at

Bela-Bela. On day two, they stopped over in Polokwane after pedaling 172km. On Friday, the group stopped over in Louis Trichardt to replenish their energy levels and prepare their bicycles for the grueling trip over the mountain, all the way to the Ankura Academy. “For most of the cyclists it will be the first time that they will actually see the academy and also have a chance to interact with them,” said Swanepoel. Since the group became involved with the school, several children have benefited and have been able to finish their studies.

NOTICE OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT PROCESSES PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PROCESS PROPOSED VENETIA SOLAR FACILITY PHOTOVOLTAIC (PV)/ CONCENTRATED PHOTOVOLTAIC (CPV) SOLAR ENERGY FACILITY – PHASE 1 (75MW) AND PHASE 2 (20MW), LIMPOPO PROVINCE Project Names: Applicant: Proposed Activity:

Venetia PV/CPV Plant Phase 1 - Up to 20MW Venetia PV/CPV Plant Phase 2 - Up to 75MW BioTherm Energy (Pty) Ltd BioTherm Energy (Pty) Ltd is proposing to establish two commercial photovoltaic solar energy facilities (utilising either photovoltaic (PV) or concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology) on a site near Musina, Limpopo Province.

These projects are as follows: • Venetia PV/CPV Plant Phase 1 (export capacity of up to 75MW) Limpopo Province. This project will require an EIA process (Scoping & EIA phase). • Venetia PV/CPV Plant Phase 2 (installed capacity of up to 20MW) Limpopo Province. This project would require a basic assessment process. As each project will be implemented through separate Special Purpose Vehicle, two separate Environmental Authorisations will be required to be obtained. A broader area of approximately 520 ha is being considered within which the facilities are to be constructed. Each facility would include the following infrastructure: • Photovoltaic (PV) or Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV) panels. • A new on-site substation to evacuate the power from the facility into the Eskom grid via the Venetia Substation located adjacent to the proposed development site. • Mounting structure to be either rammed steel piles or piles with pre-manufactured concrete footings to support the PV/ CPV panels. • Cabling between the project components, to be lain underground where practical. • Internal access roads and fencing. • Workshop area for maintenance, storage, and offices.

Church launches unique African choir A unique African choir, integrating people of different races and even different countries, was launched earlier this year. “The Agape African Choir is an initiative aimed at ce­ lebrating the sound of Africa and eventually impacting other countries with it. Our vision is that the choir will become an established vocal group that is known for being different, skilled, and one that will leave an indelible mark on the hearts

of all who hear it,” says choir leader Grant Clifton, fulltime pastor at the Agapé Christian Centre. Next year, the choir will be performing at an international Church conference in East Malaysia that will be attended by several prominent Christian leaders from Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, and other surrounding countries. “This is the first major performance that we are working toward, and we are excited

about what’s to come from beyond that as well. At this stage, however, we are hard at practice and working on developing our skill to be able to perform at a high level. We are also focusing on small performances,” says Pastor Clifton. The choir will perform at a book launch function at Agapé Christian Centre on Saturday evening, which will be their fourth performance so far, with various perfomances lined up for the near future.

Brief

“Kom ons leer ons jongmense om nee te sê vir dwelms en ja vir lewe”

S

ê-net-nee Klubs is bitter nodig in Louis Trichardt. Etiese standaarde het verbrokkel. Die sedelike norme waarmee tieners groot geword het, het verdwyn. Kuierplekke in die dorp het ontaard in ‘n dwelmnes. Is ouers en ander inwoners bewus van wat gebeur op ‘n Vrydag- en Saterdagaand? Mis­ kien ander weeksaande ook ... In ‘n kuierplek waar dronk en gerookte tieners rondwaggel op oorverdowende musiek is daar ‘n paar meisies besig in die badkamer om met ‘n bottel tik te rook ... Maak maar ‘n opname by die hospitale om te kyk hoeveel jongmense word op ‘n naweek opgeneem, ondermeer vir ‘n oordosis dwelms of verdo­wingsmiddels, beserings en aanrandings. Langs die kroeg se toonbank staan ‘n leraar van ons dorp ... Daar kuier hy stil, pas sy kinders op. Dan 04:00 in die oggend gaan almal huistoe saam met dominee, want van die seuns is te gerook en gedrink om self by die huis uit te kom - nie sy kinders nie, maar die vriende. En wat gebeur by sy huis? Saamslapery. Dit is nie net by kuierplekke waar dit aan die orde van die dag is nie, o nee. ‘n Fondsinsamelingsaand word gehou deur een van Makhado (Louis Trichardt) se organisasies. In die vroeë oggendure, wanneer die par­ ty­tjie op sy warmste is, staan daar ‘n groepie mans en vroue wat ‘n sigaret rook wat vol dagga gestop is. Dit is net om lekker te lag vir alles, af te sluit, te chill en hulle maak sommer ‘n peace pipe ... almal rook saam aan een sigaret. Maar die ergste kom nog ... dit is mense wat aansien in die dorp geniet. Hoe nou gemaak? Wie gaan vir wie help? Ja, my pa het my geleer beproef als, maar behou die goeie. Brief

Ja, Operasie Cheetah vang die verbode sigaretsindikate, maar kan ons asseblief begin fokus op die dwelms in die dorp? Word die handelaars nie uitge­ snuffel­nie? Handelaars is die gebruikers se grootste vriende; hulle gee nie ‘n flenter om wie se lewe word geruïneer nie, solank hulle net geld maak. Waar kry al die persone die geld om dwelms te koop? Veral tieners wat nog op skool is? Hoe sê ‘n mens nee sonder dat jy soos ‘n uitgeworpene voel by jou maats? Hoe kan ons help? Hoe gaan ons dit stop? Gelukkig is ek aan die verkeerde kant van 40, my kinders klaar grootgemaak, maar wat van hulle kinders eendag? Soveel vrae en te min antwoorde ... Kan ons nie ook Sê-net-nee Klubs wyd en syd in die dorp en in skole vestig nie, sodat jong mense en ‘n paar volwassenes hulle saam daartoe kan verbind om nie met dwelms te eksperimenteer nie? Om te weet dit is nie cool om kokaiëne of tik te gebruik om jou die siel van die partytjie te maak nie. Ek weet daar is mense wat ook na die kuierplekke gaan wat hoë morele waardes en standaarde het, en wat hulle nie vergryp aan alles nie. Hulle gaan om te kuier met vriende wat dieselfde waardes as hulle het. Kan die persone nie miskien help om die verslaafdes aan die kaak te stel, hulle ouers te laat weet sodat hulle getoets kan word, hulle name op ‘n bord aan bring by die kuierplek, en dan verban word daar nie? Dit is tog hulle wat die plekke ‘n slegte naam gee. Moenie op ‘n pad van selfvernie­ tiging gaan nie- sê net NEE en sê net JA vir die lewe. Sê net nee - (Makhado – Louis Trichardt).

“Gee gerus vir Makhado hierdie gat”

S

o ... blyk dit al hoe meer en meer ‘n voorreg en trots te wees om wel nog op ‘n briefhoof te skrywe “Louis Trichardt!” In die jagseisoen van 1994 het my ou jagmaat op humoristiese wyse die onrusbarende “Afrika-herle­ wing” die hoof probeer bied: “Man ... ek weet nie waarom mense so besorg is nie? Vat KwaZulu-Natal en gee die ding vir die Zoeloes. Vat die Oos-Kaap en gee dit vir die Khosas. Gee Venda vir die Vendas en Namibië vir die Ovambos. Vat die Vrystaat en gee dit terug vir die Landbank!” So moet mens seker maar die Makhado-offensief Brief

Dit gaan baie beter met Jacques

D

it gaan al heelwat beter met Jacques de Beer (10), vandat sy kopvel deur ‘n boerboel verskeur is in Desember verlede jaar. Jacques, wat deur ‘n maatjie se boerboel aan die kop gebyt is, kry steeds behandeling om sy kopvel te heg. Dit word gedoen deur chirur­ giese ballonnetjies wat op sy kop ingeplant is. Die ballonnetjies word vol vloeistof gepomp, sodat Jaques se vel kan rek en oor die wonde kan groei. Die de Beer-gesin reis nog steeds elke twee weke na Pretoria, sodat Jacques hierdie behandeling kan ontvang. Intussen will die gesin graag die volgende persone bedank

Prayer Power.

P

rayer power is really the power of God revealed through prayer. JA Hanne says in the book of Prayer and Pretence: “The power of prayer is no more and no less than the mighty power of God released through the life of a man who stops being an obstacle of God. The power is God’s alone.” Some mistakenly credit spiritual gains and victories only to prayer. True prayer releases the power to bring these results, but God is the source of that power. Leonard Ravenhill writes: “Prayer is as vast as God because He is behind it. Prayer is as mighty as God because He has committed himself to answer it. RA Torrey writes in his book The Power of Prayer: “All that God is and all that God has, is at the disposal of prayer.” Prayer can penetrate places where no other power can reach. There is no situation or problem too great for the power of prayer.” The power of prayer is largely untapped by the church today. Christian’s have God’s power, tapped only by believing prayer. We must take the view that prayer moves the hand of God because God says it will in His Word. Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto Me and I will answer you.” Prayer is also deathless; it can be answered after the prayer has died. Let us pray. - 079 5168303 Voorkeur word gegee aan kort briewe oor plaaslike aange­leent­­hede.
