MANY people either look forward to the festive pe riod and begin their countdown to Christmas in Oc tober, while others are left running for the hills to avoid the ‘silliness’ that comes with the season. As we get ready to wind down and take a breath er, we decided to reflect on some of the wonderful reasons to celebrate the year that was. Yes, we can talk about some of the lowlights as well (no pun on the word ‘lights’), but that would not be very festive at all. The team at the Fever has had a wonderful year and has shared some truly remarkable memories with you. We’ve had an actionpacked year from meeting wonderful individuals who are slowly changing their communities one step at a time to covering campaigns that shows a proactive community who are willing to fight for their beloved home towns. To those people who are continuously going the
extra mile to serve others, we would like to salute you and thank you for allowing us to share your sto ries. This year South Africans voted hoping for the best – many are now glued to the parliament ses sion coverage because you never know what to ex pect. In 2015 we will be joining the queues for the byelections and once again, hoping for positive change. We know we live in a beautiful city and another reason to be a proud Durbanite is Durban has been voted an official new Seven Wonder City of the world. The picturesque beaches, rolling hills and breathtaking skyline together with a host of won derful inhabitants, sets us apart from the rest of South Africa. After 40 years, the Miss World title is held by a South African.

Students outside the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court last week in support of the 11 UKZN students, who were arrested during violent protests last month.
>> Strict bail conditions handed down to four of the 11 NICOLE JOHN >>email@example.com
TRICT bail conditions were handed to four of the 11 University of KwaZulu-Natal students who were granted bail of R1 000 by Pietermaritzburg magistrate M. Boikhutso last Thursday at the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s court. The four who were granted bail are Minenhle Sibisi, Ntabankeka Kopedi, Lindokuhle Hlongwa and Samukelisiwe Lubanyana. The seven remanded in custody are Chuma Wakeni, Siyathemba Magwaza, Mayibongwe Ngcobo, Mbali Langa, Thembeka Mpanza, Nobuhle Shabalala and Siyabonga Mbambo. Boikhutso said the students were granted bail on condition they do not return to the campus residences, where they currently live, and find alternate accommodation. They are
also not allowed onto the university premises unless it is for their tests and/ or exams or to attend lectures. They need to have police escorts should they need to return to their residence to collect their belongings. They are also forbidden from engaging in any protest activities. The students were arrested and charged with public violence, failure to comply with the police, interference with SAPS duty, assault of the SAPS and malicious damage to property. During her judgment, Boikhutso said all the accused were confirmed as students at UKZN and were between first year and masters students who are all currently studying on bursaries. One of the female accused is a mother of two who’s children live with their grandmother out of town. While the state vehemently opposed bail of the accused, the defence argued that keeping the accused in jail
will inhibit them from writing exams and completing their year of studies. Video footage, which was captured on the day of arrest 22 September, was submitted to the court, which showed some of the accused engaging in the violent protests. While the defence requested that the footage not be taken into consideration in the case, Boikhutso said she had already seen the footage and “cannot pretend” that she had not seen it. Boikhutso said the accused had exercised their right to silence and pleaded not guilty. “Violence must not be tolerated. All the accused are funded and therefore have nothing to lose financially. It cannot be said that the state does not have a case, the state has a strong case,” she said. She added that everyone has a constitutional right to gather and demonstrate.
“We have rights that we have never had before and with these rights come responsibility. “Any group or mob will not be allowed to hijack and violate the rights of other students and residents around the university.” Boikhutso said that the students were in direct violation of the high court order which is currently in place stating that anyone who causes damage to university property will be prosecuted. The student’s defence teams said that the students were unaware of the High Court order. “This is where the court must step in, particularly if there if there is sufficient evidence. There are other students who need to be protected and allowed to complete their studies. The safety of other students and residents
will not be taken lightly. “We must also have sufficient evidence indicating who the culprits are. In this case, there is,” said Boikhutso. She went on to announce who the students were that would be granted bail cautioning them to adhere to the bail conditions and reminded them that their names and photographs would be given to the university security. Cries from the parents, family and supporters of the accused could be heard as Boikhutso announced that bail was denied for the seven students. The case will continue on 2 December at regional court.

HILE the drought has affected food prices drastically in the last year, the Pietermaritzburg Agency for Community Social Action (Pacsa) stated, in its recent food price barometer, that food availability is not the issue, the problem is food price affordability. Low-income households cannot make it through the month on their income and find themselves having to take loans to buy food for their families. “Households with no savings to draw on cannot absorb shocks by spending more, they absorb it in their bodies by cutting down on expenditures and taking on debt to cover food and other expenditure shortfalls,” the report read. This contributes to the low level of the health of individuals, who
Soaring food prices weaken the poor cannot afford basic food in order to have a healthy meal. In turn, this leads to decreased well-being and productivity. Many South African households rely on the earning of one individual and this wage is coming under enormous pressure because of the rising cost of goods. According to Pacsa, food baskets, which contain only the most basic and necessary goods, have increased drastically since November 2015 when the effects of the drought started to kick in. “Low-income households are really struggling. It is becoming more difficult to put food on the table. The drought and high temperatures has had a significant impact on food prices,” read the report. This means that households have to either cut down on some of the staple foods or get into further debt to be able to afford the core staples, which
include maize meal, rice, cake flour, white sugar and cooking oil.

>> Yali is in its fourth year and was developed to form bonds between the U.S. and SA NICOLE JOHN >>email@example.com
PPLICATIONS for the 2017 Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders (Yali) will close on 26 October.
Mark Carr, public relations officer for the U.S. Embassy, said that Yali is in its fourth year and was developed to form bonds between the U.S. and South Africa to allow people of like minds to learn from each other and offer South Africans the chance to study
at some of America’s top universities. Two of the Pietermaritzburg 2016 fellows spoke at the Bessie Head Library last week promoting the programme. Mondli Zondo and Pierre Buckley went to America earlier this year as part of Yali and descried their With two Pietermaritzburg Yali fellows from 2016 (from left) Mark Carr (U.S. Embassy), Mondli Zondo, Pierre Buckley and Thula Ngcobo (U.S. Embassy).

experiences as “priceless”. Both fellows said that Yali opened up opportunities in the working environment for them as well as build a strong network of contacts with organisations across countries. “It was truly something I would encourage people to be involved in. The benefits it has for you as a person, and your career is amazing. “The experience is something I would never have been able to get in another programme,” said Zondo. Buckley said that Yali leaves a lasting impact on a person’s career, which does not end once the fellows return to their home country.
“We have made contacts and links with other countries that will help us with the work we are doing, not only in Pietermaritzburg, but the country as a whole.” Yali is open to people across Africa and not only provides participants with an opportunity of learning about the U.S., but also engages with and learns from others who live in different parts of Africa. The fellowship includes academic course work, leadership training, and the highlight was meeting President Barak Obama.

NICOLE JOHN >>firstname.lastname@example.org EASTWOOD Secondary School was the recent recipient of a bus shelter at the school, courtesy of An derson Engineering. Initially designed and conceptualised to protect children from the weather while waiting for transport, these shelters are proving to be more than just a waiting shelter, and offer pupils a secure place to wait. The waiting shelter project began six years ago and six schools, including Forest Hill, Woodlands Primary, Alston Primary, Eastwood Primary, Tetelegu Primary and Eastwood Secondary, have been beneficiaries of Anderson Engineering’s corporate social responsibility initiative. Eastwood Secondary, which has over 1 500 pupils, faces a number of challenges, including limited funds to support the high running costs of the large school, a high level of poverty for many pupils and the threat of substance abuse and teenage pregnancy. Garth Rampaul, principal of Eastwood Secondary,
appealed to Anderson Engineering for a shelter at the school. After a number of pleas, the company heeded the call. “His determination was something we really relat ed to and he earned a great deal of respect from us for his perseverance,” said Trevor Govender, head of so cial responsibility at Anderson Engineering. During the official opening of the shelter at the school on Monday, 17 October, Rampaul thanked Anderson Engineering for their generosity and their determination to keep children safe as they wait for their transport home after school. He also said the area is used as an alternate venue for children to break away from the classroom for various activities. Anderson Engineering managing director, Hans Coertse, and Govender were treated to the schools’ hospitality as well as an item from the school choir. “It has been a great privilege to assist the school and see the impact firsthand that the shelter will have on the school and these children’s lives,” said Coertse.

Red is for go, green is for go for taxis TWO months ago our car broke down and I have been walking to work every day. I never noticed it before when one drives one just follows the normal route, and obeys the traffic laws. In these eight weeks I have nearly been run over seven times, every time by a taxi racing through a red traffic light or at a traffic crossing. Just this morning [14 October] I was almost killed by two taxis both racing through a red traffic light. When I pointed to the lights to show the driver he was in the wrong, he just opened the windows and swore at me in Zulu. I guess they never had to pass any driving tests. I have witnessed twice in two weeks, a traffic car with a uniformed traffic officer in side, parked by these same traffic lights and on both occasioned he just watched as the taxis raced through he red traffic lights. I don’t know if he wasn’t on duty yet, or if he just didn’t care. I am left with the conclusion that it’s okay to break the traffic laws, and place pedestrians in danger, as long as you are a taxi? Please can someone who cares, some one of authority in the traffic department do something, especially at the crossing op posite the post office in Longmarket Street, where they love to play racing taxis through red traffic lights. Innocent people’s lives are in danger, and the traffic laws are being ignored, with out consequence. PIETER PIETERS Pietermaritzburg
Wilful destruction of property is despicable T HE letters in Fever of 28 September by V. Surujpaul, G. Grantham and UKZN Student all bear reference. The wilful destruction of property, burning of irreplaceable resources, and the smearing of faeces in lecture rooms are arrogant acts of vandalism. Those engaging in such grossly despicable acts should not be in an institution of higher learning in the first place. By committing such ghastly acts students are advertising to the world their depth of barbarism, and the baring of their upper bodies by some females is public indecency. All these are illegal, punishable offences, yet video footage show law enforcement agencies just watching
- no one was arrested for public indecency. Their inaction is puzzling to law-abiding citizens. Grantham’s letter makes good sense, but unfortunately, not many parents have the time to be with their children as most are employed and contributing to the economy. Our Constitution guarantees “free basic education”. Some political parties are mischievously adding tertiary education to gain political acceptance among the masses. Most democratic states assist top students to achieve their full potential, with the anticipation that such students’ expertise will be beneficial to the future advancement of the country as a whole.
Letters to the Editor must be received by no later than Friday 4pm to be considered for the following edition.. Letters and emails should be addressed to The Editor and emailed to editorial@pmbfe ver.co.za or posted to PO Box 362, PMB, 3201. Letters should not be longer than 350 words. While pseudonyms are allowed, writers must still include their full names and contact de tails or letters will not be printed. The Editor reserves the right to not run letters or to alter letters so they are legible.
The majority of South African students, who are currently in tertiary institutions with a bare minimum of a 30% pass, are neither top performers, nor will they develop expertise to benefit the country positively. Their behaviour is developing exactly the opposite. It is a pity that some political parties cannot realise the long-term damaging effects of their current short-sightedness. DALEEP SAN Mountain Rise
Hurtful to see our suburbs like this IT is Sunday 8am. I am walking my German Shepherd down Ridge Road, down Alan Paton Avenue, and left behind Nando’s. Security staff in full riot gear are patrolling the campus. Police vans are patrolling the area
around the university. The roads are littered with broken bottles, burnt remains of rubbish and uprooted road signs, and a broken security boom lies on a pavement. Gates are secured with chains. It hurts to see our suburb like this,
and I have to wonder how much of the money that has to be spent on security and repairs could have contributed to the reduction of student fees. KARIN VAN DONGEN Scottsville
Honour Public Prosecutor, Madonsela MANY of us note with sadness the retirement of Public Protector Dr Thulisile Madonsela at the conclusion of her seven-year term of office. I feel that it would be fitting if she were to be invested with an order to commemorate her outstanding contribution to the life of our nation.
What comes to mind is the Order of the Baobab, traditionally awarded to South Africans who have distinguished themselves in say, nationbuilding or community service. In the opinion of some, however, two things militate against such an award.
Firstly, her term of office did not have the longevity normally associated with the baobab. And, secondly, the award would have to be made by the president. R.S. QUERIPEL Clarendon
Why no long distance coach station? PIETERMARITZBURG has been my home town since 1990. I have at times travelled by coach from Pietermaritzburg to Johannesburg and back. This mode of transport has several advantages, but there is one unappealing feature - the boarding point in Pietermaritzburg. Why must relatives or friends double-park or park across a busy road to drop off passengers, who must then struggle with luggage and sit in an inadequate area regarded as a waiting room, until the coach arrives. Relatives and friends who are meeting a passenger must sit in their vehicle wherever they find parking, until the coach arrives. When the coach arrives, there is no designated parking space, suitable or safe, at the kerbside. The coach stops some way from the kerb and passengers must stand with their luggage on a littered pavement being jostled by pedestrians, while going through the boarding formalities. This is even more unpleasant in inclement weather, and makes boarding a most disagreeable experience. I am astonished that KwaZuluNatal’s capital is unable to provide a functional coach station that can be used by the carriers. Some years ago, a large taxi rank was built in the centre of town. Why can the same not be done for the long-distance passengers? Possible venues include the old railway station, the airport, Chatterton Road and Liberty Midlands Mall. SUSAN BUEKES Pietermaritzburg

FTER reading an article in Maritzburg Fever, titled “Determination knows no bounds” on 7 September about a Pietermaritzburg man, Khetho Nzama from Howick, resident Moira Stuart (83) has spent the last month collecting clothes from friends and family for Nzama. Nzama is a third-year law student at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and grew up in the Pietermaritzburg Children’s Home and was determined to make something of his life, and stopped at nothing to make his dream of becoming a lawyer come true. Moira, a retired nurse at Amber Valley, contacted the Maritzburg Fever the week the article appeared, determined to help Nzama in some way. “Being a granny I am happy that this young man has made something of himself and I wanted to help him in some way,” she said. After contacting the Maritzburg Fever, Nzama was asked what he needed most and said he needed formal clothes for his upcoming moot trials at
Thank you to everyone who gave me the clothes, and especially to Mrs Stuart. I am so grateful to you the university. Moira then contacted family members and the women at the Howick Lions Club, who contributed to the clothes donation. She received a new pair of formal shoes from her niece, who also donated her son’s formal shirts and jerseys, Moira bought him a white shirt and
socks, and the Howick Lions Club assisted with another new shirt and formal pants. Nzama was very grateful and thrilled about the donations. “Thank you to everyone who gave me the clothes, and especially to Mrs Stuart. “I am so grateful to you,” he said.
Laser tattoo removal produces good results ping against the skin or the same feeling as getting a tattoo, but takes far less time. Most sessions are over in less than five minutes. Before treatment we recommend numbing the area with a topical anaesthetic cream. How many treatments are needed? The process is not immediate. After the first treatment the ink that was exposed to the laser will break down and be removed by your body’s immune system over 30 days. Once the initial process is complete you can come in for your next visit, repeating the process until the tattoo is gone There are individual factors that affect how your tattoo responds to the laser, including your unique immune sysVISIT US AT Shop 75, LIBERTY MIDLANDS MALL tem, your skin tone, types of colours used, type of ink used and the depth of a tattoo.

WHY lasers? There are many methods of tattoo removal, from magic creams to surgical excision, but none compared to the results you get from a laser. Where other methods can be brutal, unproven and in many cases just don’t work, laser removal provides the most consistently effective results How does it work? Laser energy is directed at the tattooed area for a fraction of a second passing through the outer layer of the skin and targeting the tattoo ink directly. The laser disrupts the ink allowing your body to absorb it and break it down naturally. How does it feel? Laser tattoo removal has been described as feeling like a rubber-band snap-

New Chev Utility bakkie at Key PMB >> This costeffective bakkie offers outstanding performance and fuel economy
Thirdgeneration Chevrolet Utility bakkie, available at Key Delta Pietermaritz burg. PHOTO: SUPPLIED
HIS third-generation Chevrolet Utility bakkie has a look that is instantly recognisable as Chevrolet, but incorporates a new global design language. The distinctive exterior and innovative interior styling make this a
wonderfully attractive small bakkie. This cost-effective bakkie offers outstanding performance and fuel economy, superior convenience, a class-leading infotainment package and enhanced safety features. Throw in some robust working-
class characteristics and you’ll find that this is a small bakkie not afraid to roll up its sleeves, get down in the dirt and get it done. The Chevrolet Utility bakkie showcases the unmistakably strong, bold and global new Chevrolet face. Inte-
grating a unique dual-port grille with dramatic, crisp, exterior lines conveys a sense of motion from front to back. The elliptical-shaped head lamps stretching from the front fascia to the mid-section of the front fenders provide an aggressive, swept-back ap-
pearance. Who says a small bakkie can’t look good while getting it done? The Chevrolet Utility bakkie has driver and passenger air bags as standard on all models. This is a first in the sub-one-ton small bakkie segment. It goes further, with crumple zones and collapsible steering column technology to help prevent harm to vehicle occupants in an accident. The Chevrolet Utility offers excellent fuel economy. The Chevrolet Utility is available with 1.4L and 1.8L petrol engines. The 1.4L engine is especially fuel efficient (7.2l/100km). This minimises your fuel expenses, while still giving you class-leading power in the small bakkie segment (68kW/120Nm). The new Chevrolet Utility Club and Sport models contain advance driver technologies, like automatic headlights-on, automatic door locking on drive-away, and “Lead Me to the Car” lighting. So much more than you would expect in a small bakkie Starting from R139 900, inclusive of VAT, the Chevrolet Utility is a modern cost-effective bakkie that combines reliability and workhorse ability with desirable styling. - Supplied.

Honda Civic rejuvenation H
ONDA is known for its finelycrafted cars and SUVs to which adjectives like durable, reliable and practical are often applied. These are the very qualities that appeal to older car owners and worldwide Honda drivers are usually mature. Such is Honda’s popularity in gated communities in the Howick area, for exam ple, that Honda Fury in the city provides a free service, which collects and delivers Hondas requiring servicing. Honda’s reputation as a car for older drivers is a mixed blessing. On the one hand Honda cars have a stable market and much repeat business. On the other hand the brand, with the exception of the Civic Type R, does not really appeal to younger buyers. It must certainly have posed a conun drum for the newly appointed president of Honda SA, Toshiaki Konaka, and he has every reason to be grateful for the new Civic, a car seemingly designed to lower the average Honda ownership age. We recently drove the new Honda Civic 1.5T Sport CVT, courtesy of DesMarie Victor, the new car sales manager at Honda Fury in Pietermaritzburg, for which we thank her. Styling The new 10th generation Honda Civic comes to South Africa fresh from winning the North American Car of the Year title. It has a sleek, fastback design and a steeplyraked front window. The Honda designers have also ditched the somewhat frumpy front quarter windows on the previous model, enhancing the sporty appearance of the car. The front fender feature bulges over the wheel arches and the body is sculpted. The distinctive headlamps, the Cshaped taillights and tapering windows,

make this a highly styled auto mobile. It appears that after some years of sleepy aesthetics, Honda de signers are now wide awake and have produced a car that makes a distinctive and powerful statement. The car has also grown larger and projects an imposing presence underlined by its modern, 17inch alloys. Interior The interior is a big improvement over the previous model. It is both more modern and more intimate. The finishes are in rich, softtouch plastics, with all seats covered in a high quality leather. The driver’s seat is fully adjustable. Unfortunately, the somewhat low front passenger’s seat has no height adjustment, although both front seats are heated. The interior has grown substantially and is now almost as large as the Accord. The leathertrimmed, multifunction steering wheel is pleasing to handle and has a tiltandtelescopic adjustment. The steering is also the operating base for the audio system, Bluetooth and speed control functions and, if you have a smart phone with GPS function, it is possible to pair the phone to the centrallyplaced seveninch touch screen, which becomes a built in GPS system. There are also the usual plugs and USB port for your electronic toys. The dashboard, when switched on, behaves like a computer game and the brightly lighted, colourful instrument panel features a digital speedometer within an

analogue rev counter. The tall, twotier centre console cossets front passengers and contains audio and airconditioning controls. The car seats five adults comfortably and has family accommodation for both short and long journeys. The boot is generous with 430 litres of luggage space on offer and this almost doubles if the rear seats are folded down. Rear seat release levers are mounted in the boot and are simple to operate. Safety and security The new Civic is packed with safety features besides the usual ABS with EBD, six front side and curtain air bags, child seat anchors and seat belts for all. I found the Hill Start Assist most useful. There are also parking sensors and a rear view camera. Vehicle Stability Assist, Lane Departure and Forward Collision Warning, as well as an electric parking brake. The car has the usual central locking and alarm system. For those who enjoy toys, the car can be started from the outside by depressing a

button on the electronic key and, while you are saying your goodbyes, the aircondition ing system will either cool or warm the car to a temperature of your choice. Performance and handling The Civic we drove comes with a 1,5litre, turbocharged, fourcylinder, VTEC engine, that powers the two top models. Feisty outputs of 127 kW/220 Nm are good for a claimed 0100 km sprint in 8,2 seconds making it competitive with turbocharged rivals like the Opel Astra, Ford Focus and VW Jetta. Fuel consumption also appears to have improved with a claimed 5,9 litres per 100km for the 1,5T engines. The old 1,8 litre engine used in the two entrylevel models puts out 104 kW/174 Nm and it is claimed delivers 6,2 litres per 100 km. The Civic is an enthusiastic performer and an easy cruiser. The ride quality is excellent and roads are reduced to an academic quantity, as the car glides over potholes and ruts. Acceleration is immediate and whether
in town or the open road you feel you have the power required to move out of danger. On “D roads” the Civic is stable at speed and I felt I could trust the vehicle, which moves through corners efficiently, backed by its variableratio electric power steering, which is well weighted. Town parking is easy and the rear camera is a great help, while the vehicle’s ability to manoeuvre in traffic made me feel safe, even in the late afternoon rush hour, punctuated by traffic light tramps and sunglasses sellers. Costs and the competition The Civic, despite having the largest cabin in its class has a high price tag. The entry 1.8 Comfort CVT costs R330 000 and the rangetopping 1.5T Executive CVT R460 000. The 1.5T Sport CVT we drove costs R430 000 and comes with a five year/200 000km warranty and a five year/90 000km service plan. Also look at VW Jetta/Passat, Subaru Legacy, Lexus CT, as well as the Opel Astra 1.6T and the Ford Focus 1.5T.

Now entering its 13th year, the annual awards were inaugurated in 2003 to reflect realities in the global marketplace, as well as to recognise and reward automotive excellence on an international scale. The awards are intended to complement, not compete, with existing national and regional Car of the Year programmes.
The cars on the lists are tested by 73 international motoring reporters, who will vote for their favourites in a secret ballot in January. A slew of crossovers appear in the list, with the Audi Q2, Mazda CX9, Toyota C-HR and Volkswagen Tiguan all looking good, but the real surprises come from the Korean stables, with the SsangYong Tivoli and Kia Sportage competing against the usual names, while the Hyundai Elantra sets new benchmarks for sedans. In the Urban Car category, the Suzuki has two affordable models which will make their way to SA and the new Toyota Prius Prime has addressed
all the issues green petrolheads had with this first hybrid car. But on paper, it looks like the new Chevrolet Bolt will nevertheless trump the venerable Prius and even the Telsa X in terms of affordable, ecofriendly driving. In the notable absence of the latest iteration of the Nissan GT-R on the lists, our money at Wheels has to be on the Audi R8, which deserves a win as the first affordable supercar that is equally comfortable on the school run as it is around the track. The jurors’ evaluations of the World Car of 2016 nominees can be seen on www.wcoty.com

Car parts cost much more
>> MALCOLM KINSEY reminds it pays to shop around when sourcing replacement car parts
PHOTO: ALWYN VILJOEN
After stripping cars for their parts for over a decade, Awembe Sili advises the cheapest car to maintain is still either a Mazda 323 or Toyota Tazz, but not a Citi Golf. Results in categories Again we have nine categories, looking at 34 prices of common parts needed in servicing, repairs and crashes. Obviously different categories interest buyers with different budget constraints, and I have tried to give a reasonable spread within the limitations of space allowed. Crossovers are again one of the most popular vehicle choices due to their versatility, and the three categories containing crossovers cover the greatest number of “similar” vehicles, from fairly basic to high end luxury. The prices in brackets are the equivalent prices in 2015. City cars and entrylevel vehicles This spans cars priced from just under R120 000 for the cheeky little Datsun Go to the Ford Figo Hatch at close on R174 000 and obviously the specifications for these two are substantially different and not surprisingly at opposing ends of the parts basket cost. The results mirror those of last year — the Datsun is the winner with R43 193 (last year R37 631) followed by the Nissan Micra with R55 071 (R44 479) and VW Polo Vivo with R56 968. (R49 805). Service costs are lowest for the Datsun Go and next best for the Chevrolet Spark (which suffers from comparatively high crash parts prices and comes in with the highest overall basket price of all). The repair parts prices are best for the Go and Micra and the Datsun Go scores top points ahead of the VW Polo for crash parts. Super minis Prices here vary from just on R163 000 for the Renault Sandero to R243 300 for the VW Polo. The Sandero has been demoted to second place in the parts basket total this year with an overall cost of R83 783 (R65 517), pipped by the Peugeot 208, which scored a winning basket price of R79 690 (R67 463). VW Polo 1.2 TSi is in third place with R90 161 (R82 583). The Sandero has the most competitive service parts basket at R3 016, closely followed by the Polo at R3 279. Repair parts leaders are the Polo and Chevrolet Sonic, pretty much on a par at R14 500 and R14 700 respectively. Peugeot 208 with R58 781 leads the Sandero with R61 631 and the rest in the crash parts section. Chevrolet again falls down on crash parts prices. • More on www.kinseyreport.co.za.
Y 2016 Kinsey Report covers 69 vehicles and this year and with a few exceptions, there have been increases in the cost of the 2016 basket of 34 parts - some of which are quite astounding. All prices in this study were sourced in July and almost exclusively from dealers in the Durban, Pinetown, and Umhlanga. Wheel rims in some cases are over R20 000 each, doors in excess of R15 000 and if your car is fitted with “intelligent lights” a replacement may be in the R30 000 to R45 000 bracket. Many manufacturers offer these in place of the relatively affordable halogen for their upmarket vehicles. These components are in the crash parts category and in general this is the area where there has been the steepest price increase. Service parts have remained more affordable probably because the manufacturer is paying during the life of the service or maintenance plan. Repair parts also, have remained somewhat in check. Fan belts have got expensive for some

brands because they are now more technical - almost like a large rubber band that will never need tensioning. Accident and crash parts are a valid concern for all vehicle owners and can impact the finances from day one, whatever insurance policies you may have. Aluminium clad vehicles are very expensive to repair and the doors, headlights and rims already mentioned add up to an alarming amount - affecting excess, write-off points, etcetera. As I stress every year, if you are costing your own vehicle parts, it pays to shop around if you have more than one franchise dealer available. Manufacturers only recommend a selling price - they do not enforce it so prices can vary. If your vehicle is out of warranty, you may consider alternative parts, but this can be a minefield and buying from other than large reputable parts chains could prove a great deal more expensive than buying the real deal.

MARRIAGE AND FINANCIAL PROBLEMS
I, Anifa, 6 years back before I met this spiritual woman Mama Lairah, happiness was rare in my life. My husband was cheating on me, kids were always sickly and no money in the house. I tried everything, from healers, priests, and gurus but nothing seemed to work for me, only wasted more money. Luckily I saw testimonials on a local TV station about an old man whose son Mama Lairah had saved from drugs and alcohol abuse plus another divorced lady Mama had re-united with her ex-husband after 9 years. I paid R100 consultation fee. She accurately read my fortune and told me all my problems without me speaking a word to her. She then used a mirror to show me real faces of people who were trying to pull me down. Anifa and her happy She performed a one day special prayer for me, cleansed family 3 days after the me from the bad luck and also gave me love crystals, indian Special Prayer. ashes plus a special ring (to fix financial problems).

KZN female only cycle races in November >> First race of the series is the Queen Nandi Challenge on 16 November
INCE 2009, Pietermaritzburg has been the recognised hub of international cycling events in South Africa and this trend continues with two UCI 1.2 races exclusively for women being staged in and around the city on 16 and 17 November. The two races - Queen Nandi Challenge and the Queen Sibaya Classic - have attracted the attention of local, national and international teams. The first race of the series is the Queen Nandi Challenge on Wednesday 16 November. The UCI Category 1.2 race is a 100km loop starting at Midmar Dam before sweeping through the Edendale Valley and climbing back through Hilton and returning to Midmar. The race is named after Queen Nandi, mother of Shaka Zulu, recognised as the mother of the Zulu nation. The second race, the Queen Sibaya Classic, which takes place on Thursday 17 November, is a 118km race again starting at Midmar Dam and will see the peloton climbing to Mooi River before racing back to the finish at Midmar, passing through Howick. Although a road race, close to 4.5km of it is on a hard gravel road, an African twist on the iconic Strade Bianche race in Italy. The race is named after Queen Sibaya, who stood up to an abusive husband, one of the first historical steps leading to the empowerment of women in the country today. Currently four UCI women’s teams will competing - Cervelo Bigla Pro Cycling Team, Team Tibco, Silicon Valley Bank, Hitec Products and Bizkaia-Durango and this will see riders from as far as the U.S., Spain, Holland, Ukraine, Britain, Ger-
many, Finland, Denmark and Canada coming to compete. While there have been women’s races in South Africa before, they have always been linked to men’s races. Now for the first time, women-only races will be staged and this is part of Cycling South Africa’s plan to develop women’s cycling in South Africa. As part of this plan the organisers have also been working with the UCI, the African Cycling Confederation and the UCI African Cycling Centre to ensure that this opportunity will benefit as many riders and nations as possible. JP van Zyl and his team at the African Cycling Centre will be holding a training camp for riders from all over Africa in the weeks leading up to the KZN Summer Series races, then these riders will compete in the races under the African Cycling Centre banner. This will boost the international list at the races, and apart from the South African ladies, so far there will be also riders from Algeria, Botswana, Central African Republic, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Lesotho, Namibia and Zimbabwe all fighting to raise the stakes for African cycling. - Supplied.

ELEBRATING the camaraderie behind the Comrades Marathon, the Spirit of Comrades Awards took place this weekend honouring those who exhibited selflessness during the 2016 down-run. At a grand affair at the Elangeni Hotel in Durban, three men were honoured for their commitment to Comrades. The first recipient, Amit Sheth, is the first Indian national to have competed in the Comrades Marathon in 2009 and was, in the same year, appointed as Comrades International Brand Ambassador. Sheth has since written a book about Comrades and travels across India and Asia promoting the race. From his book earnings, which has been the best seller in India, Sheth has donated over R2.5 million to the Tate Memorial Hospital for cancer treatment for the underprivileged children. Rupin Mehta, the second recipient, was awarded for sacrificing his own race to help two other runners who were in distress which prevented him from finishing his fifth consecutive race.
