Woman murdered in Chartwell SHARMAINE REUTER A 40-year-old womanâ€™s life was violently taken when she was stabbed to death for her cellphone by unknown suspects. According to Douglasdale police station spokesman Warrant OďŹƒcer Balan Muthan, the woman, the wife of a gardener in the area, had alighted from a taxi and was on her way home by foot along Runnymead Road. The victim was accosted at the corner of Third Avenue and Runnymead Road at around 6pm. She was robbed of her cellphone and stabbed to death. Police were uncertain whether there were one or two suspects but were investigating. Muthan said, â€œIt is sad a woman had to lose her life over a cellphone.â€? He said policing in Douglasdale police precinct was increased last month. â€œAll our oďŹƒcers are on the street and will be until further notice,â€? said Muthan. email@example.com

Are flags that offensive? Police priorities during the 2010 Fifa World Cupâ„˘ have raised many questions. While the greatest sporting showpiece has been one big jol so far, do they really have to go hard on roadside ďŹ‚ag sellers? Yes, we all love a city where eďŹ€ective law enforcement prevails. And indeed, the roadsiders are breaking municipal street trading by-laws and should face the might of the law. The truth is that residents have for years pleaded with law enforcement agencies to deal with illegal traders. But there is another school of thought here; the World Cup is upon us. The roadsiders have been selling ďŹ‚ags of participating countries and other supportersâ€™ items since the turn of the year. And theirs donâ€™t hit the pocket. In fact, they have always traded there, long before the World Cup kicked oďŹ€, and will continue to do so after the ďŹ nal whistle. How then, and when, did
people providing a good service and earning an honest living suddenly become a target, so much so that armed policemen take to the roads in trucks and conďŹ scate their wares? Is it because we now have global football fans among us? If so, does it make it right? Some fans will not be able to show their true colours, courtesy of the lawmen, when the pride of South Africa whips the Uruguayans in Pretoria on Wednesday evening. It will be interesting to see if the zero tolerance approach to roadsiders â€“ and the â€˜ladies of the nightâ€™ who were ordered into a police truck in Illovo the other night â€“ will continue after 11 July. The solution rests with allocating the informal traders a site to conduct their business, and monitoring what they sell not arresting them. But surely national ďŹ‚ags during the World Cup cannot be that oďŹ€ensive? firstname.lastname@example.org
DISCONTINUED DRUG DEAL: A bag of marijuana is testament to a failed drug deal.
Crime catch MATTHEW WOOD Itâ€™s been a busy week for Douglasdale police. Criminals fought the law and the law won after culprits continuously failed to keep their illegal swagger out of armâ€™s reach. Douglasdale police spokesman Balan Muthan allowed the Review a quick peek inside the evidence room. Bundles of copper cable sat securely after two suspects aged 25 and 32 were caught pillaging the underground material from an Eskom power station in Kya Sand. Among conďŹ scated ďŹ rearms and contraband sat an enormous bag of cannabis in a forensic package. The
large sack of drugs was seized from a 28-year-old drug dealer operating in Jukskei Park. But the inspection was interrupted by the arrival of more than half a dozen illegal street traders. According to Muthan they were considered pests in the area who contributed to nothing other than excessive littering and holding up the traďŹƒc during this particularly busy time of year. â€œOther than that itâ€™s been a very quiet week for us. â€œCriminals keep a low proďŹ le, particularly with all our forces constantly out on the streets. We are expecting a safe and secure festive period ahead of usâ€?. email@example.com

Beware of possible poetry scam ZANELE SABELA The Poetry Institute of Africa poetry competition appears to be a scam. In May, the Review ran an advert by the institute calling on the public to enter original poems into a competition with a grand prize of R10 000 cash. Subsequently, a reader Matthew Murray said he was having trouble getting in touch with the people at the institute. Murray said he had entered the competition in 2009 and was notiďŹ ed his poem had been selected to appear in the instituteâ€™s annual anthology. He was told he would have to pay for a copy of the published book. Thinking it would make a lovely Christmas present Murray ordered 11 copies and posted a cheque for R2 600. It was cashed but Murray never received the books or heard from the institute again. â€œWhen I saw the ad this year I noticed the
same details. I called but could not get through,â€? he said. That is when he called the Review. We also had no luck over the phone, so we tried to lure them out by requesting an interview. But the calls and e-mails remained unanswered. â€œEven back then I thought it was suspect.â€? Published poet and coordinator at Wits University Writing Centre, Kgaogelo Lekota, said he entered the competition in 1998, but when they told him to pay to receive the anthology he became suspicious. A Google search by the Review revealed similar complaints on Hellopeter.com. A search for the publishers of the anthology came up empty; the website lists a postal address but no physical address. Murray said his selected poem was part of a trilogy dedicated to his wife who died in 2008, which was why he wanted copies. â€œIt was entitled My wife, my lover, my friend, the same words on her headstone.â€? email@example.com
The Johannesburg Property Company ( JPC) does not intend to sell the small piece of land on Rutherford Road in Sunninghill. JPC spokesman Brian Mahlangu said they would rather help the community through legal processes to see that they keep the open space. This would involve rezoning the land from residential 1 to public open space. Several weeks ago, the Review published an article detailing how residents in the area had heard rumours that JPC was in the process of selling the land, a small rocky koppie that holds signiďŹ cant historical value to homeowners in the area (Let us keep this land, week ending 21 May). Former landowners, Anglo American Properties, donated the open space to the community in 1984 after residents objected to its development. Previously, the Review struggled to get answers from JPC as several oďŹƒcials declined to comment, but we have since learnt that the municipality does
not intend to sell. Resident JosĂŠ Clara said homeowners were arranging a braai and clean-up afternoon in the near future to rid the park of excess vegetation and look at exciting plans on how to utilise the open space in months to come. Melody Tuson, another enthusiastic resident, said an idea was to erect a curved stone wall at the back of the property which would display large photographs of Claraâ€™s old maps of the area, and pictures of the ancient stone relics he found in the park many years ago. â€œPupils from local schools could come and learn about the areaâ€™s history and geological structure,â€? said Clara. Ward councillor for the area Annette Deppe said these initiatives had her full support. â€œWe still need to investigate how the land was ever rezoned as residential. I lived in Sunninghill for 18 years and knew that it was originally zoned as public parkland.â€? firstname.lastname@example.org

Boost for hospitals AMY PATTISON-EMMS The Gauteng government has decided to respond to the call for maintenance of hospitals which is rife across the province. To tackle this, R30 702 million has been allocated to hospital maintenance around the province. This was revealed by Faith Mazibuko, the Gauteng MEC of infrastructure development during her budget speech at the legislature. â€œWorking with stakeholders, we have identiďŹ ed among other hospitals, Chris Hani Baragwanath, Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic hospital and the Helen Joseph hospital, as our planned maintenance projects, where we will provide materials and work with communities and cooperatives who will be providing intensive labour.â€? According to Mazibuko, this was one of the biggest maintenance projects that the government would undertake. Mazibuko appealed to the public to lend a hand by reporting maintenance needs to oďŹƒcials. She also requested that people refrain from vandalising government-run hospitals and facilities. Meanwhile the Democratic Alliance (DA) was not convinced Mazibuko would achieve anything with that kind of money. Neil Campbell, DA Deputy Spokesman for Health, told this newspaper the money was insuďŹƒcient. â€œAt Chris Hani Baragwanath hospital alone there are four boilers

undertaken by the health department which was better informed on hospital requirements. firstname.lastname@example.org
Gauteng MEC for Community Safety, Khabisi Mosunkutu has issued a stern warning that any form of violence in the province will not be tolerated. â€œPerpetrators can run and hide but sooner or later we will get you,â€? said Mosukuntu, adding light-heartedly, â€œEven if the culprits pass on, we will soon arrest them in the next life.â€™â€™ Speaking at city council headquarters in Braamfontein during a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Rea Vaya media brieďŹ ng, Mosunkutu was responding to a question from this newspaper about the progress made
by police in arresting people who ambushed the BRT in Soweto last month. During the attack a commuter was killed and eight others were seriously wounded in two separate shootings. Mosunkutu said police were working hard to track down the perpetrators. He said people who committed such acts were very clever and took precautions to make it diďŹƒcult for police to trace them. But he revealed that at least one suspect had been apprehended and police were following leads to arrest more. email@example.com

Is BRT in good hands? NIE CELE A recent announcement by the city council that former taxi bosses will now own 100 percent of the bus operating company, Clidet, that will run and control the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Rea Vaya for phase 1A, is good news. But the fact that city council and the new owners are reluctant to disclose the ďŹ ner details concerning how much they stand to beneďŹ t from this business leaves a big question mark. One can only hope that this is a good business deal that wonâ€™t turn sour soon, due to some bosses surrendering their taxis to the City of Joburg in exchange for shares in the company. Another concern is that no one has mentioned anything about who is going to be in charge of what, when and how they are going to take the bus company to greater heights.
Punchline and the Johannesburg commuters can only hope that the local authority really means what it says and has done extensive research on this deal hailed as an historic milestone. Commuters expect nothing less than quality public transport that is safe, fast, eďŹƒcient and aďŹ€ordable, as promised every day by all spheres of government. Punchline hopes that drivers and owners will run these quality buses eďŹƒciently and professionally and keep them clean and roadworthy at all times, failing which the city council will have to take back ownership. To those taxi owners who are still against BRT itâ€™s time for introspection. Johannesburg is one of the fastest growing African world class cities and needs public transport transformation ďŹ nish and klaar. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please clean up mass mess soon Michael Jackson, chairman of the Graceland body corporate writes: This is an open letter to the chairman of Massmart Limited Mike Lamberti. You will no doubt be aware of the numerous concerns expressed by members of the residential community of upper Sunninghill regarding the seven storey oďŹƒce block erected by Massmart at the corner of Maxwell and Peltier drives. In the case of Graceland II, we look directly onto the rear of the building, which towers over the skyline. We have tried to request Massmart to at least
make every eďŹ€ort to blend the colours of the building with the surrounds so as not to be highly obtrusive on the surrounding residential areas, many of which have to view it daily from patios and gardens. Our requests have however not been acted on. With the building now completed, the white vertical strips are particularly obtrusive. Our plea would be at least to have these coloured with an intermediate colour between the sandstone and dark red ďŹ nishes, such as Kalahari sand, tan or mocca. Further aspects which would render the building less
obtrusive would be placing fascias over exposed corrugated iron protrusions, and placing a coating on some of the white horizontal tiled strips to render them less dazzling and contrasting to environment colours. We note from the Massmart website that the company views itself as a socially accountable company, with â€˜responsibility and obligation to the broader societyâ€™. We have found it surprising that neither the colour choices for the building nor the approach taken in addressing aesthetic concerns raised this.
Picture speaks too many words Owner of Total Garage, Douglasdale, Gerhard Viljoen writes: With reference to the article Mind your juice when ďŹ lling up, week ending 11 June. I have been in this industry for the past 20 years, and the scenario described in your article is one of thousands we as service station operators need to be on the lookout for on a daily basis. In some cases, pump attendants
defraud customers (as per your example), in some they defraud the service station owners and in others â€˜customersâ€™ defraud the service station. It does happen in the industry, but it is far more isolated than the article suggests. The problem I have is not with the article, but with you using my service station (as seen in the photograph) in this negative context.
Although there is no direct link in the article to my service station, customers immediately link the article to the photo and perceive Total Village to be the problem area. I am a neighbourhood service station. My customers know my site, and some comments like â€˜have the guys been caughtâ€™ reďŹ‚ect negatively on my staďŹ€ and on my business.

Fanfest fever hits Sandton KEBA MOTHOAGAE
HEADY NOISE: Magic Dlomo of Houghton.
They came from Soweto. Many ďŹ‚ocked in from Alexandra. An overwhelming majority were locals from Sandton and Fourways. Nearly 200 000 tense and excited spectators packed Sandtonâ€™s Innisfree Park Fifa Fanfestâ„˘ to witness Bafana Bafana collide with Mexico in the ďŹ rst ever 2010 Fifa World Cupâ„˘ match on African soil. Gridlocked traďŹƒc on the adjacent Grayston Drive did not diminish the spirit of an incoming crowd determined to lap up as much quadrennial World Cup euphoria as possible. Nick Roberts from England described the event as buzzing. â€œAfter this Iâ€™m deďŹ nitely staying for the whole tournament,â€? he said. The place was awash with the
yellow of Bafana Bafana, but a meagre Mexican representation was intent on making its modest presence felt, even though blowing Central American melodies on vuvuzelas lacked the necessary impact. When kick-oďŹ€ arrived, the noise and passion was incredible and the rendition of Nkosi Sikelelâ€™ iAfrika seemed likely to bring down nearby buildings as the audience channelled its zeal into a Bafana team almost 30km away. Immediately after the game, as if on cue, a typical Johannesburg winter chill descended on the park. But the camaraderie kept everyone warm as the droves headed for the exits. The general consensus was that a return to Innesfree was not negotiable. Expect a bigger, better and louder turnout for the next matches. email@example.com

Hearty cheers LEONA DIBAKOANE With thunderous vuvuzelas and loud cheers, soccer fans united at Montecasino fan park in Fourways to watch the opening match. Spectators showed oďŹ€ their dancing skills and took part in the diski dance just before kick-oďŹ€. When the match started the atmosphere was electrifying as supporters cheered on their
favourite team and waited anxiously for that ďŹ rst goal by Bafana Bafana, which sent the fan park into a wave of sheer excitement. By the end of the match the supportersâ€™ spirit was as high as at the start. â€œWe didnâ€™t win but the boys played a fantastic game, well done,â€? said Bafana supporter David Makula. email@example.com

BOOOOOOTH: Bafana Bafana defender Matthew Booth greets his fans.
Go wild for Bafana KEBA MOTHOAGAE Bafana Bafana can rest assured the whole nation is behind them. An estimated 185 000 people packed the streets of Sandtonâ€™s central business district to witness the national team parade in an open top bus, with everyone present using the opportunity to wish Bafana well for their opening 2010 Fifa World Cupâ„˘ match against Mexico. PULSE OF THE NATION This yearâ€™s World Heart Rhythm week runs from 7 to 13 June with the theme, Know your Pulse. The initiative aims to raise awareness about heart arrhythmia and sudden cardiac arrest or death. These conditions can occur in apparently healthy, young and ďŹ t people and are often caused by an out of rhythm heartbeat of which a person is unaware. Soccer legend Lucas Radebe, in partnership with Prevent Arrhythmic Cardiac Events, led thousands of football fans in a world record attempt to have the most people take their pulse at the same time during half-time in the Nedbank Cup Final at Soccer City. The Fifa medical committee viewed the prevention of sudden cardiac arrest as a major objective of their preventive and educational eďŹ€orts. A standardised pre-competition medical assessment of all players was implemented. Details: www. heartrhythmcharity. org
The festivities were the brainchild of Rand Merchant Bank which brought on board Primedia, Supersport and Sandtonâ€™s Southern Sun hotel where Bafana will stay for the duration of the tournament. National pride was at fever pitch as people squirmed and jostled for a better view of their heroes, with customary howls of â€˜boooooooooothâ€™ ringing out as the team, and a very tall Matthew Booth, came into view.
The occasion coincided with Vuvuzela Day, and the sound of nearly 200 000 blaring horns gave the Bafana Boys plenty of gees in their endeavour to do well in the greatest show on Earth. As if part of proceedings, the Dutch national team bus passed through, sending the crowd into a frenzy that left thunderstruck expressions on the faces of the Dutch players. firstname.lastname@example.org

For chilled-out dads
French onion soup
For dads who love eggs
Onion, ricotta and sage omelette Preheat the oven grill to hot. Heat 30ml olive oil in a 25cm, non-stick, heavybased ovenproof frying pan and sauté 3 sliced red onions, 5ml crushed garlic and 30ml chopped fresh sage until soft and the onions are golden in colour. Pour 10 beaten jumbo eggs into the onion mixture, season with 5ml sea salt crystals and 2ml freshly ground black and pepper, and top with 80g ricotta
cheese, drained and crumbled. Cook over medium heat for three to five minutes, or until almost set. Remove from the stove top and place under the grill for three to five minutes, or until golden in colour. To serve, slice into wedges and garnish with 20g wild rocket. Serves 6
Recipe from Be My Guest by Fay Lewis. Struik Lifestyle, R250.
In a large pot, melt 1 tablespoon butter with a few glugs of olive oil over a low heat, as you don’t want it to burn. Make sure the bottom of the pan is covered, by swishing it around. Pour in 3 roughly chopped yellow onions, mix them into the oil with a wooden spoon and sweat gently for about 40 minutes. If the heat is kept to the lowest setting they won’t need more oil. Towards the end of the cooking, turn up the heat a bit; you want the onions to brown and caramelise, not to be charred to a crisp. When the onions look golden and browned round the edges, pour in 2 litres of stock (I use 4 cups of chicken stock and 4 of vegetable stock, although beef is the traditional choice). Turn down the heat to low again, stir, and add 1 tablespoon good aged syrupy balsamic vinegar. This gives the soup a mellow, sweet earthiness. Let it simmer for another 15 minutes, taste, add salt and pepper
if needed, then ladle into bowls. Pour in 100g / 1 cup grated Gruyère or Parmesan cheese when you are about to serve. Serves 4 generously Recipe from Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights by Sophie Dahl. HarperCollins, R250.

SPOIL DAD For dads who enjoy meat
Lamb shanks with peppers and brinjal
For dads who like chicken
Lemon chicken with buckwheat Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F / Gas mark 4). In a large, heavy-based frying pan, heat 2 tsp corn oil (vegetable oil) over medium heat. Add 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts and brown on both sides. Season with salt and ground black pepper to taste and transfer to a large casserole dish. Add 350g finely chopped onions to the frying pan and sauté until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add 2 finely chopped cloves of garlic and continue sautéing for 1 minute. Add 350g buckwheat to frying pan, stirring to coat with the oil. Cook for 1 minute,
stirring well. Add 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp ground coriander, 1/2 tsp ground cardamom and juice and grated zest of 1 lemon. Stir well, then spoon buckwheat mixture over chicken. In a medium saucepan, bring 700ml chicken stock to the boil. Pour stock over buckwheat and chicken. Cover the casserole tightly with aluminium foil and bake for 45 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and buckwheat has absorbed almost all the chicken stock. Serves 6 Recipe from 500 Casseroles by Rebecca Baugniet. Struik Lifestyle, R110.
Preheat the oven to 175°C. Dust 6 lamb shanks with 1 cup flour seasoned with salt and pepper and fry in 1/4 cup olive oil until brown. Transfer the shanks to an ovenproof dish. Arrange 1 diced red pepper, 1 diced yellow pepper, 1 diced green pepper, 36 whole baby onions, 1 x 410g can peeled tomatoes and 1 cubed brinjal over the shanks. Combine 1 cup white wine and 2 cups chicken stock and pour over the shanks and vegetables. Season to taste. Cover the dish and roast for 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Serve with rice. Serves 4 - 6 Recipe from Tastes of Africa by Justice Kamanga. Struik Lifestyle, R230.
And finally ... for dads with a sweet tooth
Apple tart Peel and core 6 apples. Cut 3 of them into chunks and cook with 1 tsp sugar and 1 stick cinnamon to make a purée. Slice the other 3 apples into thin wedges and poach until soft. Roll out pastry into a greased tart dish. Blind bake in preheated oven at 200°C for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Spoon apple purée over the pastry lining. Arrange cooked apple wedges on top. Spread apricot jam over the top. Return to oven for 20 to 30 minutes and bake until golden. Recipe from Evita’s Kossie Sikelela by Evita Bezuidenhout. StruikLifestyle, R150.

Principal of Crawford Lonehill, Shaun Fuchs said, â€œI love the theatre. It is the one opportunity that we have to sit and relax, whether it is Michael Flatley or a school musical.â€? As part of the production, there was a special drive for the schoolâ€™s
community outreach programme whereby parents and friends who attended bought tickets which included a blanket. The blankets were donated to a blanket drive the school supports. It was a great evening topped oďŹ€ with the audience tapping its feet to the beat of the Waka Waka and realising they are proud South Africans and the World Cup is deďŹ nitely here. firstname.lastname@example.org

Park at Parkerâ€™s for a good laugh MATTHEW WOOD Those addicted to laughter wonâ€™t want to miss out on a night at Parkerâ€™s Comedy and Jive in Montecasino. The Review witnessed a typical night out at the arena of gambling and entertainment to see funnymen Melt Sieberhagen, George Kuda, Mpho Pops and Andrew â€˜Magic Manâ€™ Eland hosted by club owner and comedy legend Joe Parker. Using a stage backdrop of numerous international ďŹ‚ags, the comics made fun of the upcoming Fifa World Cupâ„˘, and many members of the audience. Mpho Pops amused the crowd with his suggestion that we didnâ€™t have to worry about local terrorists. â€œCan you imagine how stupid that would be? Someone with a 750ml Black Label quart ďŹ lled with petrol sticky-taped to their chest in a taxi asks a friend on his cellphone how to detonate it. Did it work? If it worked I would not be having this conversation right now.â€? Magic Man was a favourite with his card, coin and balloon tricks and his ability to make a bottle of cooldrink appear out of thin air before handing it to an audience member.

Ending hunger HEATHER WALKER For most people 5km is not far. But this is the average distance a hungry child in the developing world has to walk to ďŹ nd food. With this in mind, hundreds of people trekked 5km through the Joburg Zoo for the End Hunger Walk the World relay. This international event runs over 24 hours in all the time zones, beginning in Australia and ending in Samoa. â€œThe initiative mobilised an estimated 150 000 people to raise awareness and funds for the school feeding schemes of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). In an incredible wave of solidarity, the world came forward to say that child hunger is totally unacceptable. At least 160 walks in 70 countries raised enough money to provide 10 000 children with nutritious school meals for a year,â€? said Josette Sheeran, WFPâ€™s
WALK PROUD: Participants walk through the zoo. executive director. â€œSince Walk the World began in 2003, it has seen two million participants and fed 190 000 children,â€? said Tim Steel of TNT Express, a founding partner of the event. According to WFP research, hunger and malnutrition are the biggest threats to global health. Every six seconds a child dies of hunger and related causes. Funds raised from Joburgâ€™s walk will go to the Food 4 Africa
Foundation, which aims to provide children with at least one vitamin- and mineralenriched meal every day. One walker, Dominique von Moos, explained why she took part. â€œItâ€™s a great reason to get out of bed early on a Sunday morning and I love the idea that Iâ€™m part of an event happening simultaneously in 70 countries.â€? heatherw@caxton. co.za

KICKER: Inquina first team player Jacques Lemmer gets the game going.
Inquina rugby marches on MATTHEW WOOD There is no shortage of passion, dedication and commitment as the youthful soul of the Fourways Inquina rugby team marches on. The ďŹ elds of Fourways high school were abuzz with adrenaline as the blue and white striped clad Inquina strategically combated against Wanderers. The crowds were wowed as the Inquina U20 polarised the score board with an uncanny 102-0 victory. The third team were beaten very narrowly and ďŹ nished with a 14-17 loss.
Competition and resistance remained consistent during the second team game until tries and conversions were dropped almost casually by the Inquina backline for the remainder of the match, concluding in a 24-10 win to Inquina. Donning yellow and blue uniforms, the Inquina ďŹ rst team lost an extremely close game to Wanderers 25-26. The games were monitored closely by managers Bishop Vismer and Remi Clarke, shouting support for their soldiers all the way. firstname.lastname@example.org

Sisters hoist the SA ďŹ‚ag SHARMAINE REUTER Douglasdale sisters, Kadzamiri (14) and Vizuri (9) Modjadji are brimming with enthusiasm and patriotism for the 2010 Fifa World Cupâ„˘, since they both play a part in the historical event. Two weeks ago, Kadzamiri was chosen as a ďŹ‚ag bearer for the quarterďŹ nal at Ellis Park on 3 July. Kadzamiri was at home with her friends when she discovered the news. â€œI was so excited and jumped up and down screaming when I found out,â€? she said. â€œIt was great to have my friends there to share the excitement with me.â€? She said she wasnâ€™t too sure of what was expected of her on the day. â€œBut they will brief us and itâ€™s sure to be great fun since there will be more than 300 ďŹ‚ag bearers.â€? Her younger sister Vizuri performed in a video screened at the opening ceremony last Friday. â€œI auditioned for it about two weeks beforehand, and at the time all I knew was it had something to do with the World Cup.â€? The next day, Vizuri got word she had the part and ďŹ lming started the following day. The idea for the video was to showcase the young girl in diďŹ€erent parts of Johannesburg. â€œI was a little nervous but was also so excited and felt like a model.â€? A highlight for the sisters was they got to keep the clothes. â€œI had this pretty princess dress made for me which is now mine,â€? said Vizuri while Kadzamiri said she was thrilled to have her ďŹ‚ag bearing soccer gear. email@example.com
