>>omega.moagi@media24.com 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.

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).

ID books  expiration  date  is  ‘false  news’ PRECIOUS  GUMEDE >>precious.gumede@media24.com

S

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  >>omega.moagi@media24.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. Categories: •  development  for  feature  films,  documentaries, short  films  and  TV  formats; •  production  of  feature  films,  short  films,  docu­ mentaries, archive, web series and post productions; •  marketing  and  distribution;  and •  festival  funding. Neo Moretlwe of NFVF said anyone who meets all the  requirements  can  apply.  “All applicants should apply according to the tier breakdown ­ tier 1 is experienced filmmakers who have a  proven  track  record  for  developing  and  producing three  to  five  theatrically  released  feature  films.  “If a tier 1 applicant would like to further their stud­ ies, they are required to apply for an NFVF bursary. The deadline for applications is February 4, 2018,” she said. “Tier  2  are  filmmakers  with  limited  experience, who have developed and produced theatrical feature films, television fiction, documentaries, short films or commercials, seeking to venture into feature film de­ velopment  and  production.

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..

Philani Ngwabe:  ‘I  support  the  cam­ paign  200%  be­ cause  when  my  parents  died  I  had  to  use  my  inherit­ ance  putting  myself  through  university  and  as  a  result  my  siblings  had  to  go  through  tough  times  because  all  the  funds  were  exhausted.  implemented.’

Zama Nyawose:  ‘I  don’t  think  fee  free  tertiary  edu­ cation  is  a  good  idea  for  this  country  because  universities  need  money  to  maintain  themselves.  Where  will  they  get  funds  from  if  they  don’t  charge  tuition?’

Aphelele Mpo­ lase:  ‘The  fee  free  tertiary  edu­ cation  is  a  criti­ cal  issue.  As  alumni  of  the  Nelson  Mandela  University  I  can  detail  the    burden  of  tui­ tion  fees.  Free  education  is  a  wonderful  ideal,  but  the  reality  is  a  dream. 

Siyamthanda Sifanele:  ‘The  fee  free  tertiary  edu­ cation  would  be  a  good  idea  if  properly  imple­ mented.  It  would  be  helpful  to  underprivileged  children  who  want  to  study  but  who  are  not  covered  by  NSFAS  or  other  bursaries.’

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

First day  at  ‘big  school’  OMEGA  MOAGI  and  PRECIOUS  GUMEDE

T

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

W

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.

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

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.

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.”

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-

f

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

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

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.

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.

South Coast  to  host  Sunshine  Ladies  Tours FEVER  REPORTER 

T

HE South Coast will be the proud hosts of two Sunshine Ladies Tour golfing events in 2018. According to the event organisers the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality lost hosting rights for the S A Women’s Open to Cape T own this year - they gained the rights to two of the Sunshine Ladies Tour, the South African Women’s Masters and the SuperSport Ladies Challenge. Sunshine Tour Chief Executive Selwyn Nathan said in a media statement that the Sunshine Ladies T our has grown significantly since its inception in 2014 with just eight events totalling R1,075 million in prize money. Last year the total purse was just under R3 milion and the top 10 ranked professionals competed for a R1 000 000 bonus pool in the chase to the Investec Cup for Ladies. For 2018 it has gone even higher with a record purse of R4,450million, plus a R100 000 incentive for the Investec Property Fund Order of Merit winner. “The Ray Nkonyeni Municipality

hosted the South African W omen’s Open for five years at San Lameer Country Club and last year, the City of Cape Town supported us to bring the South African Women’s Masters back to the circuit after an absence of eight years,” said Lesley Copeman of World Sports Promotions. “With the Investec South African Women’s Open moving to Cape Town, the City of Cape Town will be supporting the national championship. “We then offered the South African Women’s Masters to the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality and we are so delighted they accepted. “We are incredibly grateful to the municipality and its mayor,Councillor Nomusa Mqwebu, for their unwavering and ongoing support of women’s golf,” said Copeman. Ray Nkonyeni Municipality spokesperson Simon April said the municipality was pleased about their partnership with the organisers. “We regard golf as very interesting and growing and developing sporting code hence the passion by the mayor to support sporting events that promote it.
