SPCA field worker bitten, support pours in OMEGA MOAGI >>email@example.com SPCA Lower South Coast field worker Chris Bester was hospitalised after being bitten by dog at work this past week end. Bester, renowned on the South Coast for his selfless hard work and dedication to animal care, was reportedly bitten while responding to call to rescue a stray dog, resulting in him being hospitalised. Residents sent out messages of sup port on Facebook wishing Bester a speedy recovery and complimenting him on his good service “Sitting here and just thinking of the dangers that SPCA workers really put themselves in. That stray dog that was reported could have rabies. The callouts for an injured ani mal, who could and would bite at any second. There are really huge risk factors that you guys deal with on a daily basis yet you still put in an effort into for car ing and looking after the animals. All of my best wishes and wishing you a speedy recovery,” said Rudolph Jones. SPCA manager Lauren Ferreira said Bester, known to his colleagues as a bubbly character with an avid sense of humour, kept his high spirits even during these tough times. “I went to meet Sabelo [SPCA in spector] at the hospital to help sort things, and regardless of any situation, Chris is always positive and in high spir its. ‘My boys’ are extremely important to me and I know first hand what they deal with on a daily basis. This job takes special kinds of people and I feel so blessed to have staff who always go the extra mile and give everything for the love of animals. “My days are a lot easier having them around, as they always lift one’s mood and we all appreciate Chris’s wicked sense of humour. Love to you and your family,” said Ferreira.
>>firstname.lastname@example.org IF you are grappling with exorbitant school uniform prices the Competition Commission of South Africa may soon ease the strain a little. The commission’s investigations into the anti-competitiveness of the R10 million school uniforms industry is expected to result in a drop in costs as well as a fine for schools found to participating in anti-competitive behaviour. Speaking to Talk 702 commission spokesperson Sipho Ngwema said probes into the school uniforms industry were prompted by complaints from parents from 2015. He said a full report into the investigation would be released in coming weeks, however, so far the commission was able to uncover that more than 30% of schools remained involved in anti-competitive behaviour, including a school that has had one supplier since 1974. “The investigation is at an advanced stage and should be released in the next few weeks. “We want to make sure that parents are exposed to reasonable prices and quality items‚” said Ngwema. A Port Shepstone parent said this year he paid R3 500 for his two daughters schooling at a local primary school. “Most of the items are from the school itself and these are the ones that are more expensive. For everything else we use various, cheaper retail stores,” said the parent,”

HE Umzumbe Municipality has once again received its fourth consecutive clean audit opinion (C AO) for the 2016/2017 financial year. Umzumbe spokesperson Sabelo Ncwane said the news was announced in council at the end of the financial year. Ncwane said the Auditor General shared with council the good news and said the necessary evidence from the municipality was submitted and thoroughly scrutinised. The AG said congratulations are in order for the municipality for maintaining a clean audit status for the fourth time. Umzumbe Mayor Cllr Sizwe Ngcobo applauded the municipality and said he is delighted that Umzumbe, being a rural municipality with limited resources, receives such good results. “Achieving a clean audit is difficult, but main-
taining it is even harder. I would like to thank council for an outstanding job overseeing all processes. “Their dedication has been excellent for the past four years. I would also like to congratulate our administration department and managers for its sound financial administration. If it wasn’t for them we would have not achieved this. “Our finance department, led by our chief financial officer Kush Audan, has worked tirelessly, educating all of us on the pros and cons of financial administration,” he said. Umzumbe matched its clean audit opinions with many other achievements, including projects like the Ntashana access road, among others. The municipality says though, certain roads still need some work, especially those that are affected by heavy rain, but assurance was given that at a later stage the municipality would look into developing those roads.
Missing teenage girls sought
Warrant Officers Marc Wiid and Francois Pretorius search for the girls where they were reportedly cut ting wood.
UMZINTO police and Port Shepstone Search and Rescue Unit members are searching for two missing teenage girls from Beneva in Es peranza. This comes after police responded to calls from the family and friends of Tracey Mimi Makhanya (17) and Luyanda Lulu Makhanya (15). It is alleged the girls went to cut wood near their home but failed to return on Saturday afternoon. Police spokesperson LieutenantColonel Zandra Wiid said when police went to where the girls were supposedly cutting wood, only their bush knife, an empty liquor bottle and a glove were found next to the road. “Detectives from Umzinto started ques tioning possible witnesses who last saw them. Warrant Officers Francois Pretorius and Marc Wiid from PSSR searched the surrounding bushes, but with no success,” said Zandra. She said it was later established they were seen by a man on Saturday afternoon. “One sister slept over at the man’s house and left the next morning. Further searches at nearby clinics proved fruitless,” said Zandra. Anyone with information regarding their whereabouts can contact Detective Sergeant Pumlile Khumalo on 072 418 5391. Supplied.

ID books expiration date is ‘false news’ PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>firstname.lastname@example.org
CORES of South Africans have been racing to De partment of Home Affairs (DHA) offices after hearing that green bar coded identity books will soon expire. Information on social media says all citizens need to apply for Smart cards. According to a statement released by DHA recently the information is false. In a statement DHA said the reports, which first ap peared at the end of 2017, masquerade as a notice from the Department of Home Affairs that claim March 31 is the termination date for using the old green barcod ed ID books are false. DHA said the news had an effect of driving citizens in large numbers to Home Affairs offices to apply for smart ID cards in panic. “At the time we responded swiftly and said such reports are false, and do not come from us. We are again confronted with the same incorrect reports, from the beginning of January 2018, circulating largely on social media,” said DHA spokesperson Mava Scott. “We therefore call upon the public to ignore these mischievous messages.” He said the rush affects DHA’s systems making it difficult for them to deliver services effectively. “Our offices in the KZN can barely cope with the numbers.” Scott said the offices cannot, and will not, turn peo ple away, therefore they have to battle with long queues. “It is in our interest that citizens apply for and re
ceive their secure smart ID cards. It is in their interest and that of the country. It has to be done systematical ly,” he said. Since the rollout of Smart ID cards, 38 million citi zens still have green barcoded ID books. The department has since set out a strategy for a smooth rollout. “Of our 411 offices, 184 are currently with live cap ture, which can process applications for Smart ID cards and passports, and 227 offices are still to be modern ised. We intend to continue rolling out additional Smart ID card offices in order to cover the majority of our population in all provinces. “Discussions with participating banks continue and through additional bank branches. Participating banks are Absa, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank. “We encourage those with access to the internet to apply for their Smart ID cards and passports online. The portal is accessible on DHA website www. dha.gov.za “Citizens can only finalise their applications in 14 banks of which 13 are in Gauteng and only one in Cape Town as pilot sites.” “Online applications on eHomeAffairs have no queues. DHA offices do not use a booking or appoint ment system for reasons of access for all people. Our service delivery model is on ‘a first come first serve’ ba sis. We rely on historical facts to project the number of people who can visit an office. We cannot afford disruptions arising from false messages about termi nation dates.” He said DHA will communicate its programmes, processes and timelines.
The Shark Cage diving team.
Up close and personal with sharks OMEGA MOAGI >>email@example.com “SHARKS swim with fish and fish is their food, it does happen that people are bitten and a lot of it is mistaken identity.” This is according to South Coast shark expert and founder of Shark Cage Diving KZN John Miller. Miller said his mission is to develop a desire to conserve sharks with positive understanding and respect. Miller recently held a shark awareness programme at Rocky Bay Beach in Park Rynie to educate people about sharks. The programme ran from December 8, 2017 to last Friday in a bid to answer questions about the oftentimes “dreaded” species. Millers said through the programme and his organisation in general he wanted to create a culture that appreciated the essence of the species instead of fearing it. In so doing there would be an increase marine tourism as well as a transformation of the shark populations into a sustainable living resource. “We want to develop educational ocean experiences for all South Africans and tour-
ists. You can either come and dive in a cage, no experience required, or snorkel with sharks no cage, but you will need experience,” said Miller. “We are lucky to have a large number of species of sharks on our coast line and through this we can take people out to sea to experience them first hand in their natural environment. There are more than 600 species of sharks in the world and South Africa has over a 100 species,” said Miller. In order to stay safe while swimming it is important to listen to the lifeguards as they are trained to know which conditions are suitable for swimming and not to swim in dirty water. “More people are killed by bee stings, coconuts falling on their heads, than by sharks, but the media will always headline with ‘shark attacks’. “When people see a shark, they freak out, but their panicked movements have been known to draw the shark even closer. It is equally important to know when a shark is being aggressive or just curious, they live in the ocean and we enter their environment,” said Miller.

This is the third call for applicants, with the previ ous two, in 2017. The applications are divided in three categories and three tiers.

Late enrolments, annual issue
>>firstname.lastname@example.org LONG queues outside school gates and in foyers is an annual issue on the South Coast. Parents and guardians are always made aware by schools and the Department of Education that appli cations open early in the third term. Some schools even take applications in the fourth term, however, parents still fail to meet those deadlines. Some parents may argue and say schools in the semi urban and rural areas say their figures are only determined at the end of forth term, so the best time to apply and register new pupils is three days before schools open. According to the local education department, the deadline for new enrolments was October 31, 2017. A parent outside a school because towards the end of the fourth term she went to the school and was told to come back three days before schools open, and only then they can enrol her child. On Tuesday, a day before schools opened, queues were not getting shorter and some parents are told to bring removal letters from their children’s previous schools. A parent living in Gamalakhe, originally from the Eastern Cape has been turned back twice because she has no removal letter from the previous school. “My child was enrolled at this school in 2016. I took him to another school in 2017 in the Eastern Cape as I had to go back home due to some illness. “This year I am back in Gamalakhe. I resumed work, there is no one to look after him back home. The school refuses to register my child without a removal letter. “In the Eastern Cape they will only fax the letter later this week, does this mean my child will stay at home until I receive this letter?” asked the parent. The Department of Education was contacted for comment, but none had been received at the time of going to print..

HE issue of tertiary walkins has been a national quandary for years and while in 2018 South Afri can universities initially vowed not accept walk ins, in the end they gave in to political pressures solicit ing the opposite. This year as in other years resulted in countrywide stampedes endangering students lives in addition to the fortuitous administrative hassles on institutions. Local Esayidi Tvet colleges were not exempt from the experience as student hopefuls flocked to their campuses all over the South Coast. The Oslo Beach campus reportedly had a waiting list of over 200 students this week. Campus manager Chris van Rensburg said the college received their max imum intake numbers straight from the Department of Higher Education and each year the school priori tised returning students before taking in new appli cants. He said entrance tests for new applicants were done last year already and these were the students that were prioritised during registrations this year. “For engineering studies for example we took in 60 new students during this registration. We have three registrations for the faculty yearly and whoever else is on the waiting list can get to register during the next

two registration periods. Business studies has two registration periods, while the NCV course only has one,” said Van Rensburg. He said Tvet colleges were at an advantage to other tertiary institutions because their courses were shorter and hence the rotation quicker. “We have found that more and more students are opting for Tvet colleges because they are able to get a good qualification at a shorter period of time. Also, locally engineering students especially, are able to get employed from local dealerships and consulting com panies straight after graduation,” said “We are, however, in a bit of a Catch 22 because even though we would like to accommodate all the students we unfortunately can’t, and at this stage we can only place all the remaining students on the wait ing list for the next term. At the start of a new year Van Rensburg wished all his students success with their studies. “Of all the 11 years I have been here we have never really had any major issues with students, most of our students are disciplined and dedicated to their aca demics. “Most of this is attributed to the brilliant staff we have on campus as well as the students themselves. “We hope that the new students will follow suit and uphold the college’s good standards,” said Van Rensburg.

First day at ‘big school’ OMEGA MOAGI and PRECIOUS GUMEDE
HERE were more smiles than tears as pupils started their first day on Wednesday. The Fever visited some South Coast school to wish pupils a good start. Margate Grade 1 pupils were grown up about going to “big school”. At Merlewood Primary a handful of the pupils shed some tears, wanting to go back home with their parents and enjoy a few more days in bed. At Hibiscus Primary School it was the parents who shed a tear as the little ones queued up all prim and proper for the next big step. South Coast Academy Grade 1 pupils were also unfazed.

Passion transforms into a lucrative business
ITH a passion for agriculture and a drive to accomplish far beyond what is conventionally expected of a woman, Busi Molefe (49), knew she had to start her own business, which came to fruition in partnership with several ladies. Molefe is the co-owner of BBS Farm in Port Shepstone which produces macadamia nuts and tomatoes on six hectares of land. In addition to retail giants such as Pick n Pay and Spar, her products are exported internationally to Asia, China, Europe and the U.S. Molefe says she wants to lead by example for her three children, especially her only daughter. “I don’t want my children to limit themselves in their undertakings. They must take full advantage of the opportunities available to them and know that anything is possible,” said Molefe. After matriculating at Bhekameva High School in Highflats, she did voluntary work for the Advancement Community Development Corporation. She was selected to represent South Africa in Sweden for an exchange programme facilitated by the corporation, which was awarded to participants from four countries. While in Sweden Molefe was taken aback by the generosity of a Swedish family who offered to fund her entire studies on her return to South Africa. By this time she had already developed a passion for farming and enrolled at the University of KwaZulu-
Natal’s Pietermaritzburg campus for a degree in agricultural extension and rural resources management. The career choice bore fruit as she was recently honoured at a gala dinner hosted by Ithala Development Finance Corporation which acknowledged exceptional businesswomen on a public platform. Molefe walked away with R15000 for securing third position among 145 entries in Ithala’s Imbokodo Iyazenzela Women in Business A wards, a flagship programme of the KZN provincial development agency. Wearing a production and marketing manager’s hat at BBS Farm, she hopes to inspire other aspiring women to chase after their dreams and make a success of their lives. “I’d like to see more women start- Busi Molefe, the coowner of BBS Farm in Port Shepstone. ing their own business and breaking the glass ceiling in previously maledominated industries,” said Molefe. A recent McKinsey Global Institute report found that $12 trillion could be added to the global GDP by 2025 by advancing women’s equality. McKinsey’s Power of Parity Study also confirmed that women’s economic contribution globally is around 37% of the GDP with African women contributing 39% to GDP, which is slightly above the average. Molefe and her business partners hope to expand their business portfolio to include tea tree oil products and a fish farm in the near future. - Supplied.

Passionate and dedicated PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>firstname.lastname@example.org “PASSION will get you far,” said the founders of Snazzy Zanda Entertainment, an artist management and youth development company founded by Ayanda Gcwensa and Zamaswazi Mzolo. Gwensa and Mzolo are professional nurses in the military, who felt it is important to give back to the communities that raised them. Gcwensa is from a small village on the South Coast, Amandawe and Mzo lo from KwaMashu in Durban. Gewnsa said it breaks her heart to see young talent going unrecognised. “The youth of South Africa have limited resources at ground level driving them straight to bad habits such as alcohol abuse, unprotected sex and all the other so cial ills that contribute to HIV and Aids.” “As a professional nurse I see cases of youths from age 14 with HIV, saying it is ‘the norm’ in his or her com munity, and not worried what the future holds for them,” said Gcwensa Mzolo said when she was ap proached by Gcwensa with the idea of opening up a artist management company she was hooked. “I have always been a sucker for the entertainment industry from a young age. I remember how my dreams
were tarnished, yearning to get into the industry but all was no success. “I saw my dream of getting into the industry turning to reality even though it was through a life of a passion ate other, someone who I could give back to,” said Mzo lo. SnazzyZanda signed its first artists in 2017, Kolixion Fam, a hiphop group from Gwensa’s hometown Ema langeni, Umzinto. The group of three teen artists, PDKC (Paul Khoza), EmJeiy (Njabulo Jiji) and YellaKid (Syabonga Myeni). Kolixion Fam approached SnazzyZanda after having difficulties financially and in their administration, es pecially because the group saw their music career reaching new heights. Myeni (20), said the group got together in high school, having discovered their talent at school and in church. “We had just been nominated for the Live Your Dream Youth Awards for our single Kumkani Phakade, when we met Ayanda. She signed us up and assisted us with registering our track and handled all our admin and marketing. We were fortunate to meet her and Zama and at the time when we needed each other the most. We are SnazzyZanda’s first babies and are their top priority,” said Myeni. Myeni said their relationship as the SnazzyZanda family is important. SnazzyZanda is not yet funded, however, Gwensa and Mzolo are doing their best to run the company. They have two groups signed with them and have many projects in the pipeline. “We took the first step and we will see where it takes us.” The partners said they are hoping to discover more talent locally and grow into a record label.

South Indians celebrate Kavady festival
Car boot sale in aid of SPCA PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>email@example.com THE Hibiscus Mall and the Margate car boot sale orga niser, Lorraine Bruigom, invites the community to sup port the car boot sale and fundraiser for the SPCA Lower South Coast (SPCALSC). The event takes place on February 3 on the corner of Quarry and Seaslopes roads in Uvongo.
Kavady celebrations in Marburg last year. “As much as the car boot sale is beneficial to the community and the traders, the SPCA Car Boot Sale will be dedicated to our four legged friends. It starts at 8am till 1pm,” said Bruigom. A trade stand costs R50 and 40 have already been booked. “Secondhand goodies, pancakes, arts and crafts, jaffels and many other items will be on sale. The SPCA LSC will have a boereworsroll stand and its charity shop will be open,” said Bruigom. Bruigom said they will have their normal car boot sale on January 20 at the Hibiscus Mall parking lot from 8am to 4pm. For more information, contact Bruigom on 079 847 4139.
HAI Poosam Kavady is a South Indian festival celebrated all around the world over a period of 10 days in devotion to Lord Muruga. The period of Thai falls in January and February when the moon is in full phase. A Kavady is a pole with loads on either ends, this symbolises the burdens one carries. The story of Kavady began when a fight broke out between Iduman a disciple of Agasthiyai and Lord Muruga, Iduman was asked to carry two hills which symbolise Shiv Shakti (two inherent forces in human beings), he set down his burden and decided to take rest when he was then confronted by Lord Mu ruga. A fight broke out and Iduman was destroyed. He was then revived by Lord Muruga and pardoned. A change overcame Iduman and he became Lord Muru gas greatest devotee, he carried the first Kavady in pure devotion of Lord Muruga. Lord Muruga symbolises wisdom and knowledge and is known as the God of war, he is the protector and problem solver in the lives of his devotees. A flag is raised on the first day to mark the begin ning of the 10 day fast. Umbango Sri Siva Soobramoniar alayam invites all
who would like to be a part of the Kavady celebration. The flag hoisting is the first prayer which will take place at the temple at 1pm, festivities commence at 5pm during the week and 3pm on Saturday and Sun day during the 10 day period. The Thai Poosam Kavady will take place on January 30 at 12pm and the public kavady on Febuary 4 at 5.30am followed by the flag dehoisting and the final Iduman prayer on February 6. “All are welcome to attend the Kavady festival, this is an auspicious time to ask the almighty for all that you want and to prove your devotion and gratefulness, for those who would like to part take in the festival we will be there to guide you on how it is done per tradi tion. “The festival is exciting and powerful, Kavady bookings are opened from January 21,” said Cohen Pil lay. On the ninth day devotees gather to decorate their kavadies, during the 10 days the community comes to gether to pray and bhajans are rendered. “The atmosphere is always colourful and vibrant, the most important part of the kavady festival is the milk which is attached to the kavady that is carried, the milk represents your burdens and its poured at the feet of Lord Muruga, said Pillay. “Vetri vel Muruganike, arohara.”

for an interactive motivational event for artists re cently. Buntu, who is based in Johannesburg, is re nowned for his social entrepreneurship as well as political and cultural philosophy lectures and men torship programmes conducted all over the coun try. He and his team of experts from Ebukhosini Solutions imparted their knowledge of the arts and cultural consciousness with the aspiring artists of the KwaNzimakhwe. During the visit Buntu complimented the acad emy on the strides taken towards encouraging ar tistic expression within their small community de spite impoverished backgrounds. He said the artists were “cultural warriors” and not mere entertainers. Amid the hive of activity of the day were musi cal performances, cultural dancing and drumming as well as some motivational talks from the guest team. Margate Museum Curator Siyakudumisa Sotsu and Msenti founder Victor Jaca took off their man agerial hats and showed the young ones how its done on the drums as they played a set together. From the Ebukhosini team Siyabonga Lerumo treated attendants to a song and Khwezi Khanyi encouraged them to make use of science and tech nology in their growth and development. “The fact that they [Msenti] revive the Zulu culture and are able to tap into the deeper mean ing of the culture as interpreters is admirable. “I just hope they remain steadfast in their te nacity to preserve the true interpretation of indige nous cultures,” said Buntu.

Spending billions, with poor outcomes AN old saying can be adapted to reflect on the crisis at South African universities — you can lead students to university, but you cannot make them graduate. In South Africa at least 50% of undergraduate students drop out in their first year, while only 15% complete their three-year degree. Is it fair to our university staff to allow these applicants even to try to register without maybe setting high-
er admission standards? Why plan to build more universities if we have such a low graduation rate and why not only allow the most qualified students to register? Allowing in students with lower matric qualification results is only going to set them up for future disappointment, unless the tertiary exams are made easier to pass but then our economy and nation
would be downgraded even further. Surely there is a better way to spend billions when only 15% will graduate? Why not only allow the top students who pass finance to study, and devote the other funds to small business and entrepreneurship programmes? R. NICOLAI

search consultancy Ipsos released its 2017 findings based on surveys in 38 countries and guess whatSouth Africans were cited as the most miserable lot in the world and we are perceived as being very much a half empty nation. Not without reason some may say. I do not necessarily subscribe to what the research may indicate but it does raise flags. We on the South Coast are known for that ever friendly easy come easy go hospitality where hosts more often than not get outstanding reviews from guests and visitors. It will be such a pity if for whatever correct or wrong (e.g. fake news or misjudged messages on social media) reason we allow the levels in our collective glass to diminish. Being exceptional is far more rewarding especially when it comes to tourism. So when one is at a point of possibly tearing one’s hair out (and I am sometimes tempted to) maybe a bit of refreshing therapy could be that scroll in Google and being reminded of the absolute beauty of our district. This may kindle that resolute belief in what we have and the worthiness of collaborative and constructive effort to rightly keep us up there as one of the best destinations in South Africa. In the words of one of my favourite authors Dr Wayne W Dyer: “Being against anything weakens you while being for something empowers you.” I’m all for topping up the glass. May 2018 be a most fulfilling year for everybody.

An interest in understanding ‘state failure’ I HAPPEN to live in Gauteng, but work all over the world. I also live in KwaZulu-Natal, commuting between provinces as my professional load dictates. I have worked in the field of water as a national security risk, and subsequently as a corporate risk and opportunity. I am interested in understanding state failure as a phenomenon and have been tracking the Cape Town water crisis with interest. From this bowl of spaghetti, I am able to draw some unusual conclu-
sions. One conclusion is that the water crisis is an excellent litmus test of state failure. If a government is unable to provide the basic needs of its citizens then it starts to fail. Water, energy, health, infrastructure and security are key elements in the viability of a state. When any of these start to fail, the implication is that the state is actually failing. In the Ugu District Municipality , centred on Port Shepstone, we have seen large scale state failure for some years now. Political assassination is

When will they ever learn?
WHATEVER happened to the Batho Pele principle of people first? I have yet to encounter service above self, humility or assistance at any of the state or municipal depart ments. Instead, I have been greeted with arrogance and hostility. Everyone is herded like a flock of sheep into reten tion areas where they sit patiently and wait their turn, moving from seat to seat for hours on end. The ablution facilities are in a disgusting state and the service leaves a lot to be desired as you get the

I urge the powers that be to visit the departments of Home Affairs, Labour, Transport (traffic) and any of the municipal departments, especially the electrici ty department, and judge for themselves.

For a government to succeed and its people to flourish economically self-discipline/ restraint, rules and laws must be acknowledged. A person must accept responsibility.
From Shelley Beach
FROM May 2017, an education department spokesman frequently reminded parents to register their children at schools for 2018. It is apparent that South Africans fail to heed any instructions. Hence the turmoil at the beginning of the 2018 school year, compelling schools to remain closed and to dispatch teachers from one school

Protest action must be condemned THE actions of so-called EFF supporters or members who vandalised H&M stores in Menlyn and Sandton last Saturday in the guise of protesting against a “racist” advertisement, are nothing short of barbarism. This, despite an apology and the complete removal of the “offending” product from the shelves by H&H. We cannot mince our words or even be politically correct when thugs, who veil their criminality in perceived acts of great conscience, are allowed to behave in a manner befitting the age of barbarians. For the EFF, which masquerades as some form of saviour of South Africa, to unleash its lackeys to commit such acts of gratuitous destruction of property, gives all of us a sense of unease as to the real purpose of their presence as lawmakers of this country. Watching videos on social media of those who roam among us whose bellicosity in their so-called protests are utterly frightening, merely invokes the wrath of civil society. These are the very people who want to lead this country. Heaven forbid that this ever becomes a reality. While my bawling of such acts of wanton criminality has its basis in the fact that civil human beings can protest against or disagree with aspects they feel strongly about, their actions must never lead to the destruction of life or property — something that is foreign to the EFF and its malicious cohorts. We all need to express our disapprobation at such acts and unreservedly condemn them or else we will subjected to more doses of such callous conduct in the near future. The criminals involved in these incidents must face the fierce and full might of our law. N. GANESH

The Cerato, which is sold as the Forte in the U.S. and the K3 in South Korea. is now in its third generation and Kia said in a statement it packs even more sophisti cated design and desirable features “that transforms one of Kia’s best selling vehicles into something more than a compact car meant for getting people from one point to another”. A new powertrain uses Kia’s first IVT, set to deliver an estimated 6,7 li tres/100km, which is over 14km/l. Vice president of product planning at Kia, Orth Hedrick, said the Cerato is one of Kia’s topselling models and added the latest model is even more attractive to drivers seeking a compact sedan that can accommodate their versatile lifes tyle.” He said a reworked suspension geom etry provides a quick and nimble behind

Practical car for fun drives T
HE clunky diesel Peugeot 504 I drove as a teenager was quite forgiving of my steering inputs. In fact, so worn was that old barge’ s rack and pinion steering that its front wheels ignored all but my most vigorous wheel turnings, content to keep rolling in the sandy tracks of the twohorse town I grew up in. The steering of Peugeot’s new 3008 is not like that at all. So sensitive and light is this electric power steering, that I became convinced I only had to think of turning and the 3008 would already be going there. Add form-hugging seats that are high enough for the mom-in-law’ s ageing back not to bend and wellplaced buttons to start or stop everything from music playing to cruise control, and one gets to see why the 3008 recently added the Drive 360’s Family Car of the Year award to its collection that includes European Car of 2017. The judges praised the 3008’s superior materials and outstanding design — which beat off the worthy Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota C-HR and VW Golf GTD. PHOTO: CAR MAGAZINE Under the 3008’s hood, a 1.6-litre The Peugeot 3008 is as Eurocentric and modern inside as only a French car can be. turbo engine makes an average 121 some 750 km on a tank. automatic gearbox with the flappy higher revs. kW and 240 Nm from a very low What I liked most in the 3008, howPress the Sport mode and all that paddles. 1 400 rpm.

wheels” philosophy at Wheels.) Francisco Gaie, MD of Peugeot Citroën South Africa said the 3008 was making its presence felt in the intensely competitive SUV segment. This is due to a very competitive price for the 3008. The mid-level Allure we drove, courtesy of Pinetown Peugeot, sells for R459900, which includes a three-year or 100 000 km warranty and several options in service plans. This buys the latest in active safety systems, such as autonomous braking, auto wipers and a driver fatigue monitor; luxury items like keyless push start and seats with a massage function; and loads of practicality,like a 502-litre boot that folds open to 520 litres to 1 670 litres. The infotainment system interacts with any other WiFi or Bluetooth signal, with input ports for digital devices. The digital dashboard also has a lot surprises awaiting the digitally savvy driver. What the system doesn’t do is automatically update the FM radio signals, which I guess shows my age. As Gaie said, the 3008 is in a very competitive niche, but to my mind, it leads all the other MPVs in terms of a fun drive, and is therefore well worth a test drive for the family man. - Alwyn Viljoen.
