Shavathon fever hits the South Coast T
HIS weekend, the 15th annual Cansa Shavathon will hit shopping centres across the South Coast. The Shavathon is held to show solidarity with those affected by cancer. Shavathons will be held at Shelly Centre, Southcoast Mall and Hibiscus Mall on Saturday. A few venues will also host public events on Sunday. Workplaces and organisations will be hosting events from Monday to March 2. Losing one’s hair is a common side-effect of cancer therapy,
so shaving your head has become a symbolic gesture of support for cancer survivors. Colouring your hair or paying a “bail-out” fee have become options for those who prefer not to shave, or who cannot shave on
the day. For those who would like to be involved and make a difference, Shavathon embraces volunteers. Their support is invaluable. Show your support by bringing your loved ones along. You can shave, spray or stencil your hair, or do all three. Cansa thanks Scottburgh High, Port Shepstone Senior Secondary, Port
Shepstone Senior Primary, Creston College, Port Edward Primary and Ollies Pre School for showing support and helping to fight cancer. An invitation is extended to all schools in the region to be part of this drive. The Lions will be at Hibiscus Mall, the Tiagos team will be at Southcoast Mall and the Harcourts team will be at Shelly Centre. For more details, contact Sesethu Senene at 031 205 9525 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

Steel manhole covers go missing
SAPS warn against supporting street beggars FEVER REPORTER
A manhole is covered with a piece of wood. PHOTOS: SUPPLIED
PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>firstname.lastname@example.org MARGATE resident Madelein Stopforth says she has noticed that the steel manhole covers on the street outside her home have gone missing. She said she noticed this last week when she walked out of her residence. She said one night she heard a noise and wondered what was happening, only to find the next morning the manhole just next to Constancia Building was left with no cover. “It is of grate concern, especially because at night a person could fall into this big manhole,” said Stopforth. She said the matter was reported to the ward councillor and the response was that it would be
discussed at his next meeting. She said the covers have not be replaced as yet. It is suspected that the covers were stolen for metal recycling purposes, but this has not been confirmed. One of the manholes has been covered with a plank to try to secure it. On Tuesday, Stopforth said more covers went missing along National Road. Acting Ugu senior manager of communication Trevor Khanyile said the municipality was not aware of such incidents taking place. “The Water Services Department has been informed and will attend to this as a matter of urgency. Also, as the municipality we strongly condemn such actions as this has negative effects on service delivery, while also having negative financial implications,” said Khanyile. .

HE Port Shepstone police have asked motorists to refrain from giving anything to people who beg at traffic lights and street corners, to discourage them from entering the roadway and endangering themselves and other road users. Instead, people are encouraged to rather direct their acts of charity to the homes, shelters, rehabilitation centres and other charitable organisations that deal with the homeless. “By continuing to hand them our loose change, we are encouraging them to, in most cases, continue to abuse liquor and drugs and live in unhygienic conditions in the streets, on the beaches and even in the bushes,” said police spokesperson Captain Vincent Pandarum in a statement. He said this support of the homeless in the form of direct hand-outs contributes to road accidents and an increase in the cases of theft by the snatching of handbags, cellphones and other valuables from unsuspecting motorists. “Attempts by police and law-enforcement
officials to keep them off the streets for their own safety, as well as the safety of other road users, is thwarted by motorists who persist in supporting them, despite repeated requests from the SAPS for them to desist from this dangerous practice,” said Pandarum. The South Coast’s many charitable organisations that serve the homeless and the underprivileged have applauded the call. The Themba Club in Margate has three shelters that shelter and cater to the needs of children previously living on the streets or from dysfunctional families. Manager and social worker at the shelter Ncumisa Madikizela, said the shelter provides children with shelter and basic necessities, as well as monitors their psychological wellbeing, and every child is taken to school. The Hamba Buya shelter in Izotsha is another option for the homeless. Now under new management, the shelter provides basic necessities as well as trains and upskills residents through its skills development programmes to develop residents and benefit the broader community of Marburg rural area, said owner Reverend Mdu Cele.
Sheppie taxi rank a drug den PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>email@example.com WHOONGA smokers and other drug users have made the Port Shepstone taxi rank their home and they can be seen smoking openly on a daily basis. Last Sunday, a Fever reporter took pictures of a group of men and women who were smoking whoonga while sitting on the steps and using the drugs without caring who saw them. The Port Shepstone SAPS was contacted for a plan of action to stop them. The biggest concern is that they do not only smoke at the precinct but they also rob commuters. SAPS spokesperson LieutenantColonel Zandra Wiid said the station commander and her manage ment team are aware of the drug users in the area and have tasked officers to conduct several operations to address the problem. “From December 2017 to date, a total of 115 arrests for drugrelated offences were made within the taxi rank and an additional 31 arrests in the immediate vi cinity surrounding the rank. A total of 19,9 kg of dagga and 1 010 capsules of whoonga were seized and week

Municipality clamps down on illegal antennae OMEGA MOAGI >> email@example.com
AY Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM) has given an instruction that the mobile network antenna that was erected in Southport at the end of January be taken down as it was installed illegally. The antenna is on a private property on Lewis Street and belongs to Telkom. On February 8, Fever reported that some residents in the area were signing a petition in protest as they believe the presence of the antenna could be detrimental to their health and also lower the value of their properties. The report prompted divided responses from the public, with
some arguing that the antenna was necessary to improve the mobile phone signal in the area. Last week, RNM spokesperson Simon April said the structure was illegal and the owner was given a notice to remove it. “The municipality wishes to place it on record that no application for a telecommunication structure in question has ever been received. When we became aware through the newspaper report, the owner of the property was contacted and served with a contravention notice immediately stipulating the contravention in terms of Section 87 (1) (a) and (b) of the Hibiscus Coast Planning and Land Use Management Bylaw of 2016,” said April.
“The owner was instructed to remove the telecommunication mast within seven days from the date of the notice in which failure to do so will result in legal actions instituted against the owner as per Section 87 (3) and 88 of the Hibiscus Coast Planning and Land Use Management Bylaw of 2016,” said April. When the Fever contacted the property owner, J.R. le Roux, he said Telkom’s legal team had made contact with the municipality. “If you need any information you can contact the municipality,” said Le Roux. Telkom confirmed that it was in contact with RNM about the matter but insist everything was done according to the book. “We can con-

firm that the installation and the process followed was compliant with national legislation,” said spokesperson Leigh-Ann Francis. April said the municipality was also aware of another illegal antenna on Strachan Street in Ramsgate and a notice was served to them as well. “We are currently investigating the service provider that is going around installing these illegal antennae around the municipal area as we have just discovered that we are dealing with the same culprit who installed the Southport one,” said April “We are trying to set up a meeting between ourselves, legal services and the Telkom legal services department next week.”

Exclusive interview with Ugu petition founder
ANC NEC reports back to region on Jacob Zuma OMEGA MOAGI
>>firstname.lastname@example.org ANC National Executive Council (NEC) member Tandi Mahambehlala held a re portback meeting for the Lower South Coast region at the Uvongo Town hall on Sunday. In her presentation, Mahambehlala re ported back on what she said was the NEC’s “robust debate” regarding the removal of Jacob Zuma as president of the country. Following the meeting, the party’s re gional spokesperson Selvan Chetty said it could be deduced from Mahambehlala’s presentation that the decision to remove Zuma was not an easy one. He said some branch members raised concerns regarding the processes involved in the recall, to which Mahambelala re sponded that the NEC’s decision on the matter is final and that all members “need to focus on uniting the movement behind the new leadership”. “She [Mahambehlala] urged members to work towards strengthening the party and ensuring a decisive victory going for ward into 2019. “She cautioned those few members who tried to be disruptive that it wasn’t helpful to the ANC for its members to engage in ac tivities that will see us further divided,” said Chetty. ANC Lower Coast Region secretary Mzwandile Mkwanazi said the ANC express es its thanks and appreciation to Zuma for his decades of service to SA and its people.
HE South Coast Fever had an exclusive interview with Ugu Mass Lawsuit’s (UML) Sam Botha, who spoke about the progress of the lawsuit and how it will work going forward. She said that from the time of salty water, pipe bursts, water shortages and the Ugu employees’ strike, the municipality has not found solutions to its prob lems or come up with a longterm plan to ensure they keep their mandate of supplying clean water to the people of the South Coast. She said the community feels transparency and honesty have been lacking. Botha started the petition in November 2016, and will continue until the goals are reached. She said it grows each time Ugu fails. “The aim is to lay criminal and civil charges to en sure that the people get a clean and uninterrupted wa ter supply,” she said. Botha said her overseas travels proved that people can fight government corruption and negligence through civil law, using mass class lawsuits. “In these countries, the governments are effective, citizens are lawabiding and the focus is on service delivery,” she said. Being law savvy, Botha says she and her team are fighting for justice and human rights, irrespective of race, religion, political affiliation and background. “The

THE Port Shesptone Regional Hospital has appointed a new CEO. Bawinile Ndlovu, who was officially ap pointed as CEO for the hospital on February 1, has previ ously served at the hospital as a nursing deputy man ager. She left the hospital in 2014 to become health director in the Eastern Cape before rejoining as CEO. Hospital spokesperson Phumza Morai said Ndlovu and has come back with a lot of experience in leader ship and administrative practices, which they hope will enhance the performance of management and staff of the hospital. “Her philosophy is that no hospital or unit can exist in isolation, hence she encourages partici pation by everyone in planning, budgeting, personnel administration, policy development, analysis, imple mentation, monitoring and evaluation, governance and ethics,” said Morai. “She comes at a time when the hospital needs to apply greater determination and effort in terms of strengthening its regional services with the resources
at its disposal,” said Morai. She said in the few days since Ndlovu arrived, she has made unannounced visits to certain departments in the hospital to look at how they manage patients. “It was a delight for her to see staff in the emergen cy and trauma unit displaying a good attitude and pro fessionalism when dealing with patients and rela tives,” said Morai. “The outgoing acting CEO, Dr Babusisiwe Dlamini, thanked the staff, board and all stakeholders for sup porting her in the past two years,” said Morai. She enters a new position as the hospital has opened up a new gateway clinic which Ndlovu wel comed. “This new gateway clinic will be fully supported in terms of the provision of resources by the hospital and a qualified nursing practitioner will be in charge of this new unit,” said Ndlovu. The gateway clinic is open from Monday to Friday from 7 am to 4 pm. Services rendered at the clinic are firstlevel primary health services offered by a nurse, with referral to a family physician if necessary.

are being finalised. “We do not want the involvement of local authori ties and all processes will be audited and made availa ble to all the petitioners using legal firms, auditors, in vestigators and publishing on our Facebook group. Anyone may join to keep up to date.” She said the ultimate goal is to have functional change in Ugu, apprehend culprits of sabotage, ensure a repair plan is implemented and made public, and force a change in operations with honest, loyal and effi cient staff and management. “We need to prove Ugu’s incompetence and hold them responsible for the people affected. They need to pay for the negligence. Furthermore, you claim against taxes for your experiences, why not claim back damages, water tanks, water bought and boreholes drilled, etc. “Damages will be the focal point of the civil lawsuit. If the municipality cannot pay, the government will have to pay. Having Ugu placed under administration is a bonus for failing service delivery.” Business are urged to support UML. Information is available and accessible on change.org and on its Face book page. “We estimate to be complete by Decem ber 2020, as long as there is enough accurate evidence and support. The struggle continues,” said Botha. She said new petitioners may join on www.change.org/p/ugudistrictmunicipalityugu masslawsuitforchange and the petition is open until the advocate submits it to court.

struggle is for transparency, for people to know the real story behind the water problems.” UML has over 6 200 signatures and the goal was initially 7 500 to 10 000 residents contributing R100 each into a trust account. The petition and contribu tion gives UML the proxy to deal with a suit on the com munity’s behalf. Botha said this lawsuit is one of a kind and with her 17 years of experience in legal matters, this will be the first to get government structures to do their job using the power of residents fighting corruption and bad service delivery. “An NPO is being registered to make this the deliv ery vehicle for residents in future, not just for Ugu.” Investigators are involved and 17 files of evidence have been collected and are still growing. She said it would be even better to get more peti tioners joining, allowing UML to file enough evidence and make sure Ugu keeps to the mandate to keep the water on, through a court order. “Evidence is building up, and soon an organisation will be registered to fight this battle. Each person who signs the petition will contribute R100 for legal fees. However, collections will only be done once the target is reached. “No cash will be handled; a trust account for collec tions will be established. We have a timeline of stages to be completed, and each stage has a deadline,” said Botha. Currently, charges with the Hawks in Johannesburg

Debunking stereotypes about epilepsy
Beat the queues and shop online at www.picknpay.co.za* *Some deals may not be available online
FEBRUARY 12 to February 18 marked Epilepsy
Awareness Week and in commemoration of this, the Epilepsy Foundation’s national director Marina Clarke shed some light on some of the stereotypes associated with epilepsy. According to the foundation, in 66% of the people diagnosed with epilepsy (known as idio pathic epilepsy), the cause cannot be determined. In the remaining cases (known as symptomatic epilepsy), causes include brain injury and bleeding, including birth injuries, brain infections like enceph alitis, drug and alcohol abuse, biochemical imbal ances, brain tumours and degeneration caused by ageing. People living with the illness are often stigma tised in society and this is often due to upheld stereotypes which are not necessarily true. Some of the stereotypes include ideas that epi lepsy is contagious and that people with epilepsy can predict the future, are intellectually impaired, are bewitched and that epilepsy is a punishment for the person, his or her family or their communi ty. All these are simply not true, she said. “Epilep sy is the most common neurological condition, af fecting one in every 100 people in a developing country like South Africa and it is treatable. “People with epilepsy are able to attend school, work and participate in sport and other ac tivities. Think of people like Jonty Rhodes, Prince and Vusi Mahlasela, who all had or have epilepsy,” said Clarke. Also, contrary to popular belief, when someone is having an epileptic seizure they should not be given anything or have any objects placed in their mouth or nose. Rather, people should stay calm and leave the person alone until they fully recovery. “People with epilepsy are the same as their peers, with the same hopes, dreams and aspira tions. Acceptance and inclusion allow them to lead full and active lives. “Parents of children with epilepsy often over protect their children in an attempt to shield them from harm. “This can easily lead to isolation and exclusion. “Knowing what to do during a seizure is an empowering skill. It is thus important that people learn what to do and how to help,” said Clarke.
PnP Bulk Stewing Beef Bone-in
THE BASIC DOS AND DON’TS WHEN SOMEONE IS HAVING A SEIZURE: DO: • Stay calm, it’s only a seizure. • Cushion the person’s head to avoid injury by placing anything soft under the head (e.g. a cushion or jacket). • Time the duration of the seizure. It is likely to feel very long, but most seizures lasts between a few seconds and a few minutes. Seizures last ing longer than five or six minutes require medi cal attention. • Try to remove glasses and loosen tight clothing (if possible) to avoid injury and ease breathing. • Turn the person into the first aid recovery posi tion to avoid choking. • Stay with the person until he or she recovers fully and reassure him or her. Remember that the person is unlikely to know that they had a seizure. • Provide information about the seizure once the person has recovered. Most people with epilepsy have a seizure diary to record information which is helpful to the medical team (which seldom sees a seizure) for treatment. • Medical assistance is only required if (i) the sei zure lasts longer than five or six minutes; and/or (ii) the person was injured during the seizure. DO NOT: • Panic. • Move the person unless he or she is in immedi ate danger. • Restrict the person as you cannot stop a sei zure. • Burn anything in front of the person’s nose or mouth. • Put anything in the person’s mouth. This is an old wife’s tale and will lead to injury. • Leave the person alone until he or she recovers fully. • Give the person anything to eat or drink. • Give the person any medication.

Trogons visit River Valley
OMEGA MOAGI >>firstname.lastname@example.org
ENOWNED musician and former member of the Staccatos band, Steve Ashley, held a special Valentine’s show at Zizi Lodge in Leisure Bay on Saturday. The show was divided into golden oldies and rock ’n roll segments. Along with life-long friend and fellow musician Vincent du Chenne, Ashley performed for about 100 patrons who showed up to celebrate their love. During the performance, local resident Mark Frost went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend Tracy Roux, who in response said “yes”, to the crowd’s delight and applause. “I don’t even know what to say, I’m so overwhelmed,” said Roux, holding on to her new fiance.

PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>email@example.com BORN and raised in Murchison, former Sister Joans High School pupil Sandile Sbonelo Cele (21) represented South Africa in Windhoek, Namibia, at the NamPower National Science Fair recently. Cele won a gold medal and second prize in the category Best Innovations To Be Applied category, for his science project which he invented while at school. Cele designed an electrical distribution box which may help eradicate electricity theft. This was not the only award Cele has received for his innovations. He is also one of the three nominees for chairman of the Next Branch in South Africa and was the winner of Best Upcoming Young Scientist at an event held in Johannesburg. He said he would have not made it this far without his science teacher Mr Mpanza, and the school management of Sister Joans. “I would like extend my words of appreciation to my science teacher, Mr S. Mpanza, Sister Joan’s High School principal Mr M.C. Ndimande and his entire management,” said Cele. The inventive young man grew up in a rural area where most of his love for science was developed. His immense spiritual belief is one of the things that keeps him going as a young member of Thy Will Ministries International, under the leadership of prophet and minister
Awardwinning former science pupil of Sister Joans High School, Sandile Sbonelo Cele. S. Msimang. He has also been a loyal member of the youth-influenced organisation PhumlaniM Foundation, since 2016. Cele said that when he joined the foundation, his intension was to pursue his musical career and expand his experience as a young man through the Black Suit Gentlemen’s Club, however new chapters have opened up for him. He said his interest lies in law and
he has been accepted to study law at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. He said he will pursue his science career part time. “I am really looking forward to going to university and after I graduate, my goal is to come back to the South Coast and give back to the community that raised me, by discovering other innovative young people and assisting them further,” said Cele.

OMStobe got a day to ask ques tions about the unbearable aches, embarrassing situations and mild irritations they experience during pregnan cy, at Netcare Margate Hospital’s pregnancy awareness event. The talk had three speakers, including a dietician, a gynaecologist and a breast feeding expert. Dietician Linda Stalk gave the expect ant moms a range of options for their rec ommended diet, emphasising the impor tance of fibre, protein and dairy products. For snacking, she suggested fresh fruit, lowfat yogurt, bran muffins, Provitas, white or cottage cheese and popcorn. Dr Shavershree Govender went through all the minor disorders of pregnancy, stress ing the importance of always keeping an honest and open relationship with the gy naecologist. Govender reassured the wom en that it is okay to sleep on their stomach in their first trimester as the foetus is still too small to be affected and told them any thing after that, their body will start telling them what is comfortable, adding that ei ther side is okay to sleep on. “No pregnancy is the same; own the ex perience and don’t copy what your friend

Yes, you will have days were you feel like you are just not coping, but enjoy it for what it is. Embrace it and connect with your baby because it goes pretty fast,” said Gov ender. Ruth Mathison from La Lache League South Africa offered attendants breast feeding tips and encouraged women to util ise the feeding method as it is recommend ed over bottle feeds. “Breast feeding is healthiest for mother and baby. It is enjoya ble and rewarding as you connect with your baby. It is also free,” said Mathison.

God can restore your broken relationships CONNIE ZUMA FEBRUARY, being the month of love, has seen many people going to great extents to show those they love that they matter and are special to them. This, however, is not the case for every one, especially with the high divorce rate in South Africa. Many families are broken be cause of the breakdown of marriages. Other marriages are fragmenting because of indi viduals having entered these unions with baggage from their families. It is needless to then point out that as a result, supportive environments are hard to foster, and unfor tunately children then suffer the most. The effects of a broken marriage can be found not only in the immediate individuals affected, such as the family, but also in wid er society and even South Africa as a whole. Broken families are nothing new, not in this generation nor in previous generations. Throughout the Bible we read of families who had their own flaws, but because they were called according to God’s purpose, all things worked together for their good. Liv ing in such a time where if things don’t work they are thrown away and not fixed, it prob ably is the best time to be reminded that God is a God of restoration. God does not give up on people, and nei ther should we. A famous quote does, after all, say: “If God could restore us back to him self, he can restore any relationship back to
us.” In the Gospel of Luke chapter 2 verse 13 16, we read of Jesus going up to Jerusalem for the Passover feast. When he got there, He found people trading at the temple courts. The Bible says he made a whip out of a cord and chased them all out because the temple was a “house of prayer and yet they had turned it into a den of robbers”. This is the only time in the Bible where Jesus is seen to be violent. One may ask oneself if there was a need for Jesus to be so harsh, after all he is the son of the God of plenty; surely a new and much better temple could be built for peo ple to pray at? The answer is “yes”, he could definitely have people build a new temple, but he didn’t want to because he is a God of resto ration. Jesus does not discard broken situa tions, what he starts, he maintains. If he could whip out the traders at the temple courts to reclaim the dignity of the temple, then he can “whip” out any nega tive characteristic in a person that causes them to be hard to relate to. Do not disown relationships before you have presented them to the master of res toration who is the author and finisher of our faith. He knew troubles would come and he knows how he will fix them. Have faith in God; all things are possible.

TOURISM 360 JUSTIN MACKRORY: CEO SOUTH COAST TOURISM
Spare a thought for the NSRI PUBLIC safety in our seas is of critical im portance, especially when we are predom inantly a nationally and internationally recognised seaside destination. Our beaches are considered some of the best in South Africa but when a situation arises and people get into difficulty and the life guard teams are out of reach, it is the local National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) that springs into action and more often than
not a good outcome results. The dedicated NSRI teams are selfless volunteers who at short notice are called upon to drop what they are doing, get to launch and go out and save lives. They are local heroes who provide a yearround ser vice, much to the comfort of the many thousands of beach and sea users. This is why we have made an award to the NSRI stations at Shelly Beach and Port Edward. I am told that another station is earmarked for Rocky Bay near Scottburgh, and if true then we can be comforted that our entire stretch of the coastline will have excellent service coverage. From our own funds we have in the past provided much needed equipment for the NSRI and will doing so again. Tourism in both the private and public
spheres does need to recognise the daring work carried out by the stations. I suppose that this is a bit of a plea for individual do nors, the corporate sector and philanthro pists to donate to our own NSRI stations. Their sustained efficiency does depend on such gestures. When we go to tourism shows many people from upcountry (who may not be used to being in the sea or have limited swimming skills) ask: “Is the sea safe down there?”. Because we have a number of perma nently managed beaches with lifeguards (and of course our Blue Flag beaches with beach stewards) and the additional sup port from the NSRI, we are in a strong posi tion to neutralise their concerns. Let’s con tinue to keep our maritime gem on that even keel of being sunny and safe.
Things have gone bananas FROM my back garden I can see hundreds of banana trees, so why is Checkers im porting them from Ecuador to sell at R14,99 per kilogram? The shop is so blasé about it that it leaves the label on. A single container will hold at least 5 000 kg and more, so just work out how much money has not gone
to our farmers, which could go towards our farm workers’ wages. They are being sold at the same price as other local shops that sell South African bananas. Where is the EFF/BLT when we need them? An answer from Checkers head office would be interesting because I do not believe this is an item that needs
to be imported. STEVE THOMAS RAMSGATE Checkers was contacted for comment but no reply was received at the time of going to press. EDITOR

SA needs God lated. The perpetrators are blood-thirsty individuals. The departments of Education have removed religious instruction from the curriculum. The ANC legacy of violence, destruction and lack of morality should end, to acknowledged a system of law and order. Unfortunately, the “whistle blowers”, those who are morally upright, are punished for their honesty. Would you opt for honesty and morality, or take the rapidly spirally downward plunge into corruption and economic disaster? The corrupt have sold out our country. Matthew 6:24 — “No one can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one or love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” DR L.J.

A FILM titled God is Dead focused on a philosophy professor coercing his students to inscribe and sign a statement that God is dead. A Christian lad who refuted this order was informed that he would fail the philosophy class and consequently, be prohibited from enrolling in the law faculty. His girlfriend accused him of selfishness when he did not comply with “sign the statement”. She severed their relationship. This film aptly illustrates that people are willing to sacrifice principles for riches or position. South Africa is rich in natural beauties and resources. Unfortunately, the corrupt, with their greed and avarice, have abandoned their conscience, accountability and compassion. Billions of rands are expended on ineffective crime-prevention measures.

The so-called municipal police refused to take any action to stop criminal activity, never mind breaches of bylaws. At least one of them used very crude and vulgar language in telling the complainant that it was New Year and that those people celebrating the event could do as they pleased. The SAPS were no better. By driving past and ignoring the criminal acts they sanctioned the activities of all concerned. This so-called beach picnic has merely reinforced the views formed after the New Year’s day debacle. What could and should have happened was that access control should have been put in place and, once all parking on the beach was full, the roads should have been closed off. However, this would have required the municipal employees to make decisions that would have made them extremely unpopular. At the end of the day, they are paid to make the right decisions. Perhaps a class civil action must be instituted against the RNM Municipality and the individual employees, and not only against Ugu? If they are compelled to pay their own costs as well as the penalties or damages imposed by the courts, they may start to apply their minds in terms of the performance of the duties that they are paid to perform.

How to ﬁnd us:
THE comment by the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM) spokesperson is, to be very polite, rather inane. Yes, the event was approved. However, the approval could not possibly override the municipal bylaws, or could it? Do the municipality and its employees actually see the approval for such an event as giving all and sundry the right to do as they please, albeit “within the stipulated time frames”, as stated by Mr April? The reported drunkenness, urinating, littering and all the rest did not only occur on the beach at St Mikes, but in and on the roads and verges leading to the beach. The law-enforcement officers ignored all of the lawlessness. Why are they employed if this is their attitude to the functions that they are supposed to perform? What about the rights of the residents, most of whom pay the rates which lamentably are wasted on this kind of event, and the cost of the law enforcers? From the tone of the comment from the municipality, it would appear that the ratepayers no longer have any rights in this regard and the question that arises is, what action do we take to prevent a recurrence? New Year’s day was a disaster. Our visitors left vowing never to return. The drunkenness and debauchery could have been from some kind of epic end-of-the-world movie.

All stakeholders must work together SOUTH Africa’s scandalridden president Jacob Zu ma finally fell on his sword, albeit fighting to the very end. Zuma is the latest head of state in a long line of African leaders forced out of power. Taking the history of postcolonial Africa in which many aged heads of state have gripped onto power for many years, Zuma’s resignation is a huge victory for South Africa’s fledgling democracy. With the election of Cyril Ramaphosa as presi dent of South Africa, many people are saying that the winds of change are blowing through the corri dors of power and the country. Ramaphosa cannot be a personification or image of radical economic transformation or service delivery without the sup port of his cabinet, government structures and an active citizenry. The first order of business for Ramaphosa must be to stop the capture of state owned enterprises, root out corruption, maladmin istration, mismanagement, wastage and tenderre lated fraud. In order to promote economic growth and social transformation, public servants and parliamentarians need to become more responsi ble and accountable. A more equal society can only be achieved if all stakeholders, including the private sector, work together on job creation, economic sovereignty and nationbuilding. To this end, I encourage every South African to continue to be active citizens, resilient and vigi lant, and continuously to demand accountability, transparency, rule of law and to protect the Con stitution.

Wouter se Watergat WOUTER WILLEMSE DIS weer sulke tyd: Die SupeRugby-seisoen het begin. Net meer as ses maande van die jaar van die een wedstryd na die ander op Saterdae, en selfs Sondae, wanneer ek hier teen Meimaand gewoonlik voel ek nou genoeg gehad. Veral wanneer dit lyk asof die Sharks dit nie gaan maak nie, wat in hierdie kompetisie nogal gereeld gebeur. Verlede Saterdag het ek daardie gevoel sommer met die eerste wedstryd gekry. Ek het werklik gedink met al die voorbereiding, en nuwe spelers in hul midde sou hulle die Lions in hul eie lêplek ‘n lessie of twee leer. Twintig stuks Sharks-ondersteuners het al die pad van Scottburgh af gekom, truie en vlaggies, die lot, omdat hulle gehoor het rugbykyk hier by ons is nogal ‘n ervaring (met ons ekstragroot-hoë definisieskerms ) en die kroeghappies op Saterdae nogal iets besonders. Kokstad-biltong en sulke dinge. Hulle het ook gedink dis sulke tyd toe die Sharks sommer vroeg-vroeg ‘n drie druk en in beheer van die wedstryd lyk. Toe kom die eerste tekens van ontnugtering. Dit was nogal ‘n ervaring om die manne se gesigte dop te hou toe die Lions vier keer na mekaar die Sharks-skrum papdruk. Nie net papdruk nie, heeltemal vermorsel. Ek self kon my eie oë nie glo nie. Wat sake vererger het, julle-weet-wie het dit verder ingevryf soos net hy kan. Oom Pottie was in sy element. ‘So julle Sharksmanne dink Tenk du Toit kan skrum? Kyk daar! Noem hom liewer Tata du Toit. Sy skrumwerk is meer verroes as daai Indiese rammelkasse!’ Van die Lions se lynstaanblapse, wat die Sharks in die wedstryd gehou het, het hy natuurlik niks gesê nie. Maar ui-
teindelik het die manne van Johannesburg hul twaalfde agtereenvolgende oorwinning oor plaaslike spanne in die SupeRugby-reeks behaal. Dit wil gedoen wees. Moontlik het Oom Pottie tog iets beet met sy stelling: “Kyk na die Sharks… hoeveel van daardie manne kom uit die provinsie? Dis net huursoldate waar jy kyk. Daai manne in rooi dra al rooi van hulle kinders is. Driekwart van hulle kom deur ‘die ranke’ van die provinsie…. van die jonges het verlede en voorverlede jaar al wat junior-kompetisie is gewen.” Ewenwel, kom ons laat dit daar. Dit was minstens ‘n goeie en spannende wedstryd. Een van die manne van Scottburgh, James Burns, het vertel die wedstryd het hom aan ‘n destydse skermutseling op Kanoneiland in die Vaalrivier tussen Korannas en blanke boere laat dink. Die Korannas het hulle goed ingegrawe, maar is deeglik van die oewer af onder die kanonkoeëls gesteek, met dieselfde gevolge as vir die Sharks in Saterdag se eerste skrum. Hulle was redelik verflenter. Die Koranna-kaptein was egter nog vol lewe, en stel voor hulle betaal die boere in eie munt terug. ‘n Hol kokerboom word vol stukke yster, patrone en plofstof gelaai, in die rigting van die boere gedraai, en ontsteek. Weer is dit net stof en bloed. Toe die kaptein, lewend maar redelik gehawend later bykom, verklaar hy: “As dit hier so lyk, dink net hoe lyk dit daar anderkant!.” Ons loopstorie kom van James se maat Arnie Vosloo: “Ek het gister by ‘n verkeerslig stilgehou waar ‘n man staan met ‘n stuk karton. Daarop staan geskryf ‘Help, no job. Two days without food.’ Vanoggend stop ek weer daar. Dieselfde man, dieselfde karton. Ek roep hom nader, gryp ‘n koukiepen uit my sak en help hom reg deur die ‘Two’ in ‘n ‘Three’ te verander.”

As die vraag te na aan die lyf kom JY sit êrens in by ’n warm debat oor een of ander kontensieuse saak, sê maar oor die feit dat mense se kinders betrokke raak by die een of ander kultus. Mense spreek hul uit oor alles en wat. Jy neem self deel aan die gesprek en lug jou mening. Skielik vra iemand: “Wat sou jy doen as dit jou kind raak?” Dis maklik om oor ander te praat, totdat die gesprek te naby aan jou eie lyf kom. Dan voel jy dat dinge te warm word vir jou. Ons kan onsself baie maklik op ’n afstand plaas van gebeure, sonder om ons te verbind aan enigiets. Jesus en Sy dissipels is in Matteus 16:13-20 in ’n diep gesprek gewikkel oor Sy bediening. Die gesprek speel af in die streke van Caesarea Filippi. Dit was in die omgewing van ’n standbeeld van die afgod Pan van wie geglo is dat hy oor die doderyk geheers het. Interessant genoeg is dit juis hier waar Petrus die versekering ontvang dat Jesus oor die dood heers.
February 22, 2018
Teenoor die aansprake van die afgode moes die dissipels vir hulself uitmaak wie Jesus is. Jesus vra eers ’n algemene vraag: “Wie sê die mense is Ek?” Die antwoord wat Hy ontvang skets vir ons ’n ander prentjie as die sagte liewe Jesus van die Kinderbybel. Veeleer is Jesus deur sy volksgenote geassosieer met ’n vreeslose profeet soos Johannes die Doper, of ’n vuurvreter soos Elia wat vuur uit die hemel laat neerdaal het. Uiteindelik wou Jesus van die dissipels ’n persoonlike antwoord hê op die vraag oor wie Hy is. Jy kan sê dat Jesus die grootste leermeester ooit was, maar jou nie deur Hom laat leer nie. Jy kan soos Petrus instem dat Hy definitief die Christus, die Seun van die Lewende God is, sonder om Hom as jou Here en jou God te erken. Jy kan saamstem met al die mooi en edel dinge waarvoor die Christendom staan, sonder om self Christelike waardes soos liefde en vergifnis uit te leef. Ja, soms kom die vrae te naby aan jou eie lyf.
Die wêreld sal moet besef drinkbare, skoon water is die waardevolste en noodsaaklikste kom moditeit op aarde. Daarsonder maak niks meer saak nie.
Water, waaroor ons wêreldwyd eendag gaan oorlog maak
JOHAN PRETORIUS DIS algemene kennis dat Suid-Afrika ‘n waterskaars land is, en dat daar veral in twee provinsies, Wes-Kaapland en die Oostelike Provinsie, op die oomblik ernstige tekorte is, so ernstig, dat stede soos Kaapstad en Port Elizabeth teen later vanjaar geen water uit krane sal kry indien dit nie baie goed reën nie. In die ander dele van die land, ook hier in KwaZulu-Natal, vergeet ons dikwels dat ons steeds in ‘n droogtetoestand is, ten spyte van goeie reën. Wat die uwe opnuut laat besef het ons het steeds ‘n groot probleem, was ‘n onlangse mediakonferensie van Umgeni-water by die Albert Falls-dam. Kort en kragtig: Die provinsie se watervoorraad is nog steeds hopeloos te laag, veral die vlakke van die hoof-opgaardamme. Senior amptenare het verduidelik hoewel KwaZulu-Natal in ‘n baie beter posisie is as sommige ander provinsies, moet inwoners en sakeondernemings steeds water spaar. Die provinsie is nog ver van sy doelwit van 70% vol af vir die lewensbelangrike Mgeni-stelsel, wat uit die volgende damme bestaan: Mearns Weir, Spring Grove, Midmar, Albert Falls, Nagle en Inanda. Albert Falls alleen voorsien water aan twee-miljoen Durbaniete. Alles wat moontlik is word gedoen om ‘n soortgelyke situasie as dié in Kaapstad te voorkom, en die amptenare het daarop gewys dat die provinsie nog nooit in so ‘n benarde posisie was nie, selfs toe die droogte in 2015 op sy ergste was. Waterbeperkings en samewerking van die gemeenskap het meegehelp om dit te voorkom. Munisipaliteite regoor die provinsie moet besparings van 15% handhaaf, en die persentasieteikens vir huishoudings, sake-ondernemings en regeringsinstansies is dieselfde. Munisipaliteite in die provinsie bespaar egter net 5%. Indien meer water bespaar kan word, kan die teiken vir die Mgeni-stelsel van 70% in Meimaand bereik en beperkings opgehef word. Ongelukkig sien mense goeie reën val, dink die droogte is gebreek en vergeet summier van besparing. Wanneer ‘n mens hier aan die Suidkus rondkyk, besef jy dat baie mense onbewus is daarvan dat waterbesparingsmaatreëls steeds van krag is. Verlede week het ‘n buurman in ons straat ewe nonchalant sy motor met ‘n tuinslang gewas. ‘n Blik op die gobale watervoorraad toon dat daar genoeg vars water is, hoewel ‘n massiewe 97% van die water sout is. Die vars water is egter baie oneweredig versprei. Syfers van die VV se Voedsel- en Landbou-organisasie , toon dat 42.8 triljoen m3 hernieubare vars water per jaar in die vorm van reën, oppervlakwater of grondwater op aarde sirkuleer. Dit is gelyk aan 16 216
liter per persoon per dag, vier keer die hoeveelheid wat bv. in Amerika nodig is vir persoonlike en huishoudelike gebruik, nywerhede en landbou. Sowat 60% van die paneet se vars-waterreserwes is in Antarktika, maar dis gevries. Van die res, is meer as ‘n kwart in Sentraal- en Latyns-Amerika, wat 60 keer meer is as wat in die Midde-Ooste en Noord-Afrika beskikbaar is. Die VV sê daar is genoeg water om aan die wêreld se groeiende behoeftes te voldoen, maar dan sal daar drastiese veranderings moet kom in die gebruik, bestuur en deel van water. Die globale waterkrisis word veroorsaak deur verkeerde en swak bestuur. ‘n Opname van 2014 toon dat 45 lande watertekorte ervaar, wat beteken dat minder as 1 000m3 per persoon per jaar beskikbaar is. Hierdie lande sluit Suid-Afrika, Ciprus en Marokko in. In nege-en-twintig van hulle, insluitend Israel, Algerië en Qatar, is daar minder as 500m3 per persoon per jaar. Een derde van die planeet se bevolking is afhanklik van grondwater, en die VV waarsku teen oorbenutting. Die grondwater in Indië se Gangeskom, Suid-Spanje, Italië en Kalifornië se sentrale vallei kan binne dekades opdroog. Lande soos Peru, Rusland en Kanada gebruik net een persent van hul hernieubare vars water. Ander gebruik weer hopeloos te veel, soos Israel met 261% en Bahrein met 8 935%. Hierdie lande maak staat op ondergrondse water of ontsoute seewater. Die globale gebruik van vars water het tussen 1964 en 2014 verdubbel weens die bevolkings-aanwas, verstedeliking, produksie en verbruik. Teen 2030 sal die vraag na water in stede op aarde met 50% toeneem. Die VV sê die grootste verbruiker van water is landbou met 70%, nywerhede 19%, en huishoudings 11%. Daar is egter ook groot diskrepansies: in Suidoos-Asië gebruik boere 91% van die beskikbare water, en huishoudings 7% en nywerhede slegs 2%. In die Europese Unie en Noord-Amerika, daarenteen, gebruik nywerhede meer as die helfte van die water-voorraad, boerdery minder as 34%, en wonings minder as 18%. Vir elke een graad Celsius wat aardverwarming toeneem, sal 7% van die aardbevolking ‘n vermindering van 20% in hernieubare watervoorraad ervaar. Die statistiek is nimmereindigend, maar een waarheid staan soos ‘n paal bo water, verskoon die woordspeling, en dit is dat die faktore hierbo genoem, teseame met die bevolkings-aanwas en aardverwarming sal sorg dat komende geslagte wel sal oorlog maak oor water, tensy elke mens op aarde nou sy of haar deel doen om ‘n absolute katastrofe te verhoed. Daarby kom weereens ‘n belangrike vraag wat feitlik altyd ‘n rol speel in sake soos hierdie: Is die politieke wil van regerings daar?

Survivor’s book to be launched at St Mike’s Win a R25 000 bursary
PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>firstname.lastname@example.org
APE and kidnapping survivor Jackie Phamotse will be launching her book, Bare, at St Michaels Sands Hotel on March 3 from 1pm to 5 pm. Bare speaks of how Phamotse survived after being in a relationship with a “sugar daddy or blesser.” She said the book is aimed at creating awareness and serves as a warning to young women who are wishing for a sugar daddy. “Rather pray to God for a blessing,” she said. In an interview with Move Magazine, Phamotse said that Bare tells of how she was trapped in the hands of a powerful and rich man who gave her access to the life of luxury but destroyed her emotionally and mentally. “I was trapped and at times I would not know how to leave because leaving him meant that I was going to lose everything he gave me,” she said. Phamotse told Move that all she wants is to share her story with young girls because many of them are trapped in abusive relationships for the luxurious lifestyles. She said that not only are young girls supposed to read the book but that parents should also read it so that

they get a better perspective of the pressures that girls experience. “Many parents would be shocked to find out what their children are pressured into and they need to start having conversations with their children,” she said. At the launch, copies of the book will be sold and those attending are asked to wear blue jeans and peach tops.
Lunch will be served and booking is essential. Local book seller and event organiser Rita Nako said there will be a special guest speaker. “We will also have discussions on the effects books have on our lives and the impact of every breathtaking story,” said Nako. For more information and to reserve a seat, Nako can be contacted at 078 811 9064.

100% RESULTS OR MONEY BACK RICH INDIAN WOMEN TESTIFIES HER SECRET OF SUCCESS!!
My name is Michelle Moodley and I am 34 years old living in Port Shepstone, KZN, my number is 079 041 4465. It is true that my success is not a gift but rather a decision I made. It took me a while to trust anybody since I was destroyed by the previous doctors, sangomas and herbalists that I used in the past who did nothing for me but just took my money and offered me to sell my late parent’s house for their own gain and even cost me my business until today I cannot get hold of them as their ofﬁces and their phones are either engaged or not answered. Not knowing what else to do I called a business friend of mine for help and she was surprised to hear what had happened to me and she shared her secret of success which was a call to BABA GASELA who changed her life and she became rich through the SHORT BOYS that put R1 500 000 in her account each and every month and she would pay back R400 000 of that money to BABA GASELA. It was like a dream come true and after showing me her bank statements, I called BABA GASELA right away to also help me with the SHORT BOYS to put R1 500 000 in my account every month. After giving him my account details I only waited 6hrs and the 1st R1 500 000 was in my account and I paid him R400 000 as agreed. I then ordered the LUCKY WALLET that brings R100 000 every day and from that I pay him R300 000 every week. People if you have ﬁnancial problems and suffered disappointments with previous doctors, sangomas and Herbalists, then don’t lose hope. Miracles can still happen. I witnessed it and THANKS TO BABA GASELA for changing my life. Even my husband and children came back after being separated for 4 years. My husband also used BABA GASELA as he was a gambler but has never won anything and BABA GASELA changed that by giving him the lucky numbers and he won the lotto and started his own construction company with his winnings.

XHOSA WOMAN THANKS BABA GASELA FOR CHANGING HER LIFE
My name is Nontlahla Jalubane, a resident in Bizana, Eastern Cape my contact number is 073 614 2064. I was once a well known and big business woman in East London and other areas of the Eastern Cape but I ended up losing all my money through some Doctors & Herbalists in Port Elizabeth until now all their working offices and contact numbers are closed and switched off. After failing to pay my bond and my loan accounts to the various banks and companies they closed my business and repossed my properties. On Thursday 16 February I got the newspapers and read the miracles of BABA GASELA and the wonderful ways in which he changed the life of Michelle Moodley, an Indian woman from Port Shepstone, who had serious financial problems all because of Fake Doctors & Herbalists. I called Michelle Moodley who promised and guaranteed me that BABA GASELA will bring back my successful life again, I never hesitated to contact him and he gave me different options that he uses to change the lives of people who have financial and business problems, but I chose the SHORT BOYS to put R3 000 000 in my bank account and in less than 4 hours I received a notification from the bank showing that R3 000 000 was in my account and paid BABA GASELA R700 000 without any questions from the bank, it was exactly the way I was promised. On the 19th February I ordered the MAGIC WALLET which I received on the 20th February and started using it the same day and it brings me R100 000 everyday and he instructed me to pay him R300 000 every week from the R700 000 that I get each and every week. I can honestly say I am now a happy woman after getting most of my business and properties back but unfortunately some was already sold through auctions but because of his MAGIC WALLET that I use every day I will open a new business and buy new properties. I referred my cousin with whom I was staying with whilst I had lost everything to BABA GASELA and he chose RATS to bring him R2 500 000 in his house and the following day he paid R500 000 without any problems to him and his family. Now he is waiting to play the LOTTO after BABA GASELA gave him his lucky numbers and the date he is to play them in order for him to win big money and change his life after so many years of disappointments using other Doctors & Herbalists and he agreed to pay him 20% of the winnings. As a well known business woman in East London and other areas of Eastern Cape I publish this testimony to inform everybody how I lost everything I had and also to inform you that BABA GASELA is the one who helped me to get back my wealth and be rich again.

INDIAN MAN WON POWER BALL THROUGH THE MIRACLES OF BABA GASELA It all started with my addiction of gambiling through casino and sports bets which I end up losing lots of money and so much debts to pay because I was totally bankrupt after all my businesses was closed and the bank took my houses, cars and some of my properties after so many months failing to pay my monthly bonds. I am Rajesh Pillay from Shelly Beach, KZN and my cell number is 078 851 3124. All my ﬁnancial problems were solved and sorted out after I heard a lady testifying on the radio how BABA GASELA changed her life through the SHORT BOYS who deposit R3 000 000 in her Nedbank account within 4hrs only and she paid him back R800 000 without even having any problem with the bank and she also informed the public to read other testimonies in different newspapers and magazines from different people testifying how this powerful man changed their lives through their ﬁnancial problems. So I decided to call him and he explained to me different good ways of getting successful again in my life but I choose to win POWER BALL and this powerful man promised to call me within 6hrs so that he can do his miracles to get the lucky numbers that will appear on the next POWER BALL draw. But my dream of winning it came true after all the my lucky numbers appeared on the draw and I paid him back 30% from the money that I won. Now am happy and successful again and all my businesses I managed to reopen them and I bought back everything that I lost in my ﬁnancial crisis time and now I am ﬁnancially stable with my family because am also using the LUCKY WALLET that brings R100 000 each and every day and am paying him back R300 000 from the R700 000 that am getting every week without any rules, instructions or any effects from the money am getting from the lucky wallet.

It all started when I left Margate to come to Durban in order to continue my small restaurant business. that l had, hoping to get successful after so many years in Margate without success or even a small change on my business until the 3rd January when l got the Fever Newspaper for the customers to read while waiting for their orders in the restaurant. I was very surprised to read the testimonies for lots of people thanking and praising BABA GASELA or the miracles he had done to them and their families for changing their lives mainly the story of Michelle Moodley, a rich Indian Woman who testiﬁes about the SHORT BOYS who put R1 500 000 in her account within 4 hrs and pay BABA GASELA R400 000 without any problems from the bank. l couldn’t waste time but to call her ﬁrst which she promise and guarantee me that BABA GASELA is the only herbalist or doctor who can help me change my ﬁnancial problems in life and also to boost my restaurant business until l called him and ordered the MAGIC WALLET which is helping me to boost my business by getting R100 000 each and every day and pay him back R300 000 from the R700 000 that l get every 7 days (a week). After using the MAGIC WALLET for a month, l spoke to Baba GASELA and asked him to put R2 000 000 in my bedroom using his RATS or special SHORT BOYS which he promised and guaranteed me that I will get money before 9am the next day because the day l called him, his RATS and SHORT BOYS was already booked because he got lots of customers that he is helping to change their life but l was very surprised to see the money in my bedroom when l woke up without even noticing that the RATS came to put money in my bedroom and paid him back R500 000 with a smile on my face. As l was sure that my ﬁnancial problems were totally over. l am a happy woman now because of the miracles that happened to me in 2018. through Baba GASELA as l invested the money by opening different businesses in Durban and Port Shepstone.

Builtin service plans S
O, you’ve made the decision — you want to buy a car and you’ve decided which one. A big question you should be asking is how you want to service the car. What are your options? “Unfortunately, as things currently stand in South Africa, dealerships sell most vehicles with a builtin service plan. “What this means is that you buy the vehicle with a nonnegotiable service plan included in the price,” said Les McMaster, director of Right to Repair South Africa (R2RSA). “What you need to realise is that this service plan could be hugely expensive and cost anywhere between R30 000 to R60 000 or more. Added to that you are also charged a hirepurchase interest cost. “But what’s more of a concern,” said McMaster, “is that there is no transparency
in pricing from the dealerships. You could be paying a premium for servicing without even knowing.” Interestingly, he said that when R2RSA tried to determine the actual cost of the service plan component, no manufactur ers approached were prepared to provide this information. In the Vehicle Service Survey recently concluded by the Automobile Association (AA), 53% of car owners surveyed said they service their vehicles at the original dealer franchises, while 37% take their ve hicles to private mechanics. The rest either service their vehicles themselves or do not service their vehicles at all. Results from the survey also show that the rate of satisfaction among those who use original dealer franchises and those who use private mechanics for their servi ces are equally high — over 80%.
McMaster questions whether consum ers would be as pleased with the service they are receiving from original dealer franchises if they were aware of the premi um they paid upfront for the service. “The same level of satisfaction could have been experienced at a private me chanic for half the price. “Also, what the survey does not reveal is how many of those car owners using the dealer franchises are locked in because of builtin service plans and warranties. “Ultimately, we believe that you, as the consumer, should have the choice about servicing your car and the only way to make an educated decision is if you have all the information. “If the offer by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) dealership is the best offer there is, logically you would go for it. There should be no need to auto
matically build in the cost of the service and not disclose the cost you will be pay ing for the service plan.” He adds that if a consumer is happy with the service at a particular dealership and wants to use that dealership, an up front payment makes sense for both sides and creates a winwin situation. “That’s why R2RSA is all for offering service plans. But if consumers would rather choose an independent repairer be cause it’s more convenient, offers a better service experience, better location, or is more affordable, they should have the right to do so.” McMaster says that the whole point of the Right to Repair campaign is to allow you to select where your vehicle is serviced, maintained and repaired at competitive prices. “There is a need for a fair and com petitive regulatory environment that ena
bles freedom of choice for consumers and gives aftermarket small and medium en terprises a chance to stay in business. South African legislature needs to follow the international Right to Repair trend which promotes South Africa’s existing consumer and competition laws. “Builtin service plans and extended warranties are locking consumers into pe riods where firstly, they have no choice but to use the dealer for repairs and secondly, they are at the mercy of the dealer who can charge whatever rates he or she chooses. “We want to see change. We want equality, transparency and sustainability in our industry. R2RSA plans to make these things a reality and we call on you, the con sumer, to support the cause and ask ques tions before making that car purchase,” McMaster said. — Supplied.
Isuzu muX follows in Frontier’s path ISUZU Motors South Africa (IMSA) this week announced it will finally return to the Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) segment with the introduction of the Isuzu mu-X to sub-Saharan Africa after July. Isuzu’s Frontier can lay claim to having set the bar for the SUV market in South Africa, while the original mu from the eighties is still made in China, such is the timelessness of the shape. Dominic Rimmer, executive of technical services at Isuzu SA, said the 2018 mu-X will be a new entry into the local SUV segment for Isuzu, since the introduction of the Trooper and Frontier in 1992 and 1998. “This great product, which has been favourable with customers around the world, will extend the Isuzu product range, offering customers an option to choose between the rugged and capable Isuzu pick-up and a sophisticated Isuzu SUV for both work and leisure, ensuring they are catered for in the Isuzu family.” The mu-X is currently sold in several countries that include Thailand, Australia and Philippines, where it holds the market leader share. “We
The Isuzu muX is coming to SA later this year. are excited about the addition of the mu-X into the Isuzu portfolio, offering customers an SUV originating from a strong brand that is trusted and
known for reliability by South Africans.” This superior SUV will assume Isuzu’s rich DNA backed by decades of
experience in diesel engine technology. The mu-X is powered by Isuzu’s proven 3-litre engine packed with active safety features. The car-like han-
dling with exceptional ride comfort is supported by a five-link rear suspension. In addition, the seven seat configurations with ample passenger leg room promise a comfortable ride for the family whether on road or off the beaten track. Rimmer said the Isuzu mu-X model line-up, specification and pricing will be announced closer to the time of launch. The announcement of the mu-X underlines Isuzu’s commitment to the South African market since it took over the General Motors light commercial factory in Port Elizabeth, as well as the balance of shareholding in its Isuzu Trucks South Africa operations. President and representative director of Isuzu Motors of Japan Masanori Katayama said that Isuzu is committed to growing its business in South Africa. Isuzu Motors South Africa CEO and MD Michael Sacke said that the company will launch more vehicles in the medium-term future after an initial consolidation period. — Supplied.

Ramsgate CPF reports low crime OMEGA MOAGI >>email@example.com
HE Ramsgate Community Policing Forum (CPF) held its annual general meeting at the Lions Hall in Glenmarkie Drive in Ramsgate on Saturday. The meeting was attended by the SAPS, private security companies and members from the forum, as well as the community. Presentations were done by the CPF’s vice-chairperson Ross Douthwaite, treasurer Chantel Elliott and operations co-ordinator Quinn Meecham. They covered various aspects of the forum, including successes in 2017, financial stability and future plans. The CPF’s annual crime statistics presented by Meecham showed a decline of 29% compared to the previous year’s figures. Meecham said the decline was primarily due to the SAPS reservists’ constant patrols, as well as the community’s reports of suspicious activities on the CPF’s WhatsApp groups.
“If it was not for the dedicated and committed SAPS reservists and the support of the Margate police station, this CPF would not function,” said Meecham. “Our local security companies, Wolf, Maser Security Fidelity ADT and National Security and Fire (formerly Chubb), also contributed hugely to the decline in crime. We would like to thank them for their continued assistance and support,” said Meecham. The AGM concluded with the SAPS Appreciation Awards for the SAPS reservists, followed by the Wy-Go competition draw, which is a two-night stay at a Zimbali resort sponsored by www.wy-go. com “The committee requests that the community continue funding the CPF through monthly or yearly donations as this will enable the CPF to fund further crime prevention programmes,” said Meecham. For more on the CPF, Meecham can be contacted at 061 330 4145 or firstname.lastname@example.org or the Facebook page www.facebook .com/groups/ramsgatecpf

Gamalakhe All Stars coach Sbongiseni ‘Sgora’ Ngcobo gives a talk to his boys.
Coaching involves a dedication to youth development PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>email@example.com
EDICATED father and soccer coach from Gamalakhe, Sbongiseni “Sgora” Ngcobo, said he was angered by the recent news of a soccer coach who sexually abused his players. The story was in the news a few weeks ago, when a Port Shepstone coach allegedly repeatedly raped two teen boys in Murchison. The Gamalakhe All Stars coach said that after hearing the news, the Gamalakhe Football Association called a meeting, urging all coaches in the association never to commit such a crime. “I was really shocked and disappointed to hear about this. It gives all coaches a negative image because we spend a lot of time with
the boys we coach. Parents will not trust us now, thinking the same thing might be happening to their children. At the meeting, we made an oath never to be implicated in such offences. Our main focus is to develop young players,” said Ngcobo. Ngcobo said to be a good coach, you need to be dedicated. “It takes so much to be a coach; you must really love the game, have time for your players, be a role model, a mentor, teacher and most importantly, be a friend to the boys. It is all about dedicating yourself and striving for the players’ develop in the game and as human beings.” Ngcobo said being approachable and trustworthy to both players and parents is vital. He is also a soccer player who started at an early age as a goalkeeper
for Young Heroes FC. “I was also a captain for Island City. Being a leader and a senior player drove me to being a coach for the youth team, when I noticed that as a captain you take more responsibility, just like a coach. That helped me a lot in my current coaching role,” he said. Ngobo is a father of two girls and an employee of the Ugu District Municipality. He says he juggles his responsibilities easily. “I love my team, I love soccer and I love my family. I try by all means to make time for all. I am with the team three times a week, from 4 pm to 5.30 pm. I make sure that when I am not with the team I am with my family.” He asked all coaches to do the right thing and focus on developing boys to become responsible men at all times.

Zumbathon to raise funds PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>firstname.lastname@example.org FITNESS fanatics are invited to a charity Zumbathon with Zumba coach Cindy Francis for the first tri-Zumbathon to be held at Port Shepstone High School on Saturday.

SPCA. “The Zumbathon will start at 9 am and run until noon. Children aged five to seven years will be charged R40 and from eight years and up it is R80.” Francis said people are welcome to participate for one hour or all three hours. “We will be giving away a lot of prizes on the day,” she said.

Cardio tennis for a healthy heart PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>email@example.com TENNIS coach Frank Hall is taking a new exciting programme to the Uvongo Tennis Club. Hall said cardiovascular tennis, also known as cardio tennis, is not very different from normal tennis but is a sport for a healthy life. He said cardio tennis is rated the
top cardio sport out of all sports, including running and cycling. “Cardio tennis is about playing with lots of balls by keeping active tennis drills going. Unlike tennis, which is competitive, cardio tennis is more fun-based with the help of music. It is suitable for all levels of play,” said Hall. He said all that is needed is a racket and tekkies.
“It is designed so that all levels of players can benefit from it, from beginner to advanced. For our programme we start with players aged 16 to 80 and above,” he said. Hall said the programme recently started at Uvongo Tennis Club and is held every Tuesday morning from 10 am. For more information, Hall can be contacted at 083 274 5888.
Inviting everyone to the Zumba class is instructor Cindy Francis.
