MANY people either look forward to the festive pe­ riod and begin their countdown to Christmas in Oc­ tober, while others are left running for the hills to avoid  the  ‘silliness’  that  comes  with  the  season. As we get ready to wind down and take a breath­ er, we decided to reflect on some of the wonderful reasons  to  celebrate  the  year  that  was. Yes,  we  can  talk  about  some  of  the  lowlights as well (no pun on the word ‘lights’), but that would not  be  very  festive  at  all. The team at the Fever has had a wonderful year and has shared some truly remarkable memories with  you.  We’ve had an action­packed year from meeting wonderful  individuals  who  are  slowly  changing their communities one step at a time to covering campaigns that shows a proactive community who are willing to fight for their beloved home towns.

EACHERS play an instrumental role in shaping the future of children and are often seen as the guiding light in many pupils’ lives. They instil positive thoughts in children and sow seeds of curiosity and motivation, which is why we celebrate them on World Teachers Day. However, schools have become hotspots for violence where teachers are bogged down with serious challenges and other obstacles plaguing the education system. Teachers do not feel safe anymore, due to the recent attacks perpetrated against them by some of the pupils, especially in high schools. Principal of Victoria Primary School Lajeeth Maharaj said teachers must be recognised for the crucial role they play in shaping pupils’ lives. “I appeal to the community to get involved in recognising the role that teachers play in their children’s lives. Teachers must be given sufficient opportunity to give the best in the classroom. “The school is the property of the community, therefore I feel that par-

World Teachers Day was celebrated on October 5 under the theme “The right to education means the right to a qualified teacher”. Maharaj said successful countries around the world invest heavily in quality education. “Sadly, in South Africa, this doesn’t happen as our leaders have their pri-

vourable conditions for effective learning and teaching to take place,” Maharaj said. He added that communities in which schools are located need to play a more active role in assisting the teacher in the classroom. “At Victoria Primary, I ensure that my teachers are acknowledged for their good work and commitment to our pupils despite the many challenges facing us,” Maharaj said.

orities all wrong. Successful countries invest in quality programmes for teachers. Teachers are the drivers of the education system and in South Africa we are not given due recognition. “The job of the teacher in nonmodel C schools is that much more difficult with limited resources and huge class sizes. Teachers need more resources to become effective. Therefore, it becomes necessary for us as principals to ensure that we create fa-

challenges that beset the education system, teachers celebrated World Teachers Day last Friday — a day meant to recognise the role of teachers and celebrate the quality of education. Billy Nair circuit manager Selvan Chetty said teachers in Tongaat and Verulam schools are safe and pupils are not attacking them. Sadtu provincial secretary Nomarashiya Caluza also urged parents to protect teachers in schools. “The day gives a platform not only to teachers as individuals but also to the profession. We are looking at the contribution that our teachers make in our society in changing pupils’ lives. It’s unfortunate that while celebrating this day we have witnessed a lot of negative things happening at our schools. Teachers are not safe at schools,” Caluza said. She said previously parents took it upon themselves and formed committees to ensure that teachers are safe at schools. “Our call to parents is that they should go back to basics and make the safety of the teachers at schools a priority. Education is a basic human right and it is also enriched to the Constitution,” Caluza added.

Rock throwers denied bail ANDILE SITHOLE THREE man accused of perpetrating a rock throwing incident that killed two people will reappear at the Verulam Magistrate’s Court on November 9. The suspects; Selvan Govender (46), his son Nathan Govender (27), and their employee Bhekithemba Gumbi (20); appeared in court on September 26. They were denied bail. The three men are accused of killing Amina Haffajee (16) and Abdul Rahim (7), siblings who died after a rock was thrown onto the car they were travelling in from the N2 bridge near Tongaat on December 29, 2017. According to the information given in court, the suspects threw a rock over the bridge onto the vehicle. The state said there were

five witnesses that will be subpoenaed in court to testify. At their first appearance in court, defence attorney Rajendra Nathalal argued that his clients would plead not guilty “because they never met the state witnesses”. The investigating officer, Detective Ivan Padayachee of the Organised Crimes Unit, told court that the three were identified by the witnesses. Padayachee agreed that the state witnesses were among the minors that had been taken in by the police for questioning after they were allegedly found near the bridge where the incident occurred. The case was adjourned until November 9 and the suspects will be detained at Westville Prison until their next court appearance.

The case was adjourned on Monday because some of the suspects required a translator. A joint statement from the Hawks and Ministry of Police said that, between March and August this year, Durban and surrounding areas were plagued with several incidents whereby explosive devises were placed and detonated, in addition to numerous hoax calls. The media and members of the public were barred from attending the court proceedings because it is a “sensitive matter”and public involvement might jeopardise the case.

Residents are concerned about the state of the incomplete transit camps in Umbhayi, stating that they do not want to move into housing without ablution facilities or water pipes.

Housing officials appeal for calm amid community housing uproar ANDILE SITHOLE >>Andile.sithole@media24.com

OUSING officials in Tongaat appealed to members of the community to remain calm following numerous complaints about the Umbhayi Housing Project, currently taking place in the area.

Residents were complaining about incomplete transit camps where they will be relocated to once the demolition of the shacks starts. Residents said the transit camps are not equipped with ablution facilities and water pipes. Human Settlement chairperson in Ward 61, James Gumede, urged residents to be patient as the construction of the transit camps is not yet

We can assure the residents that the transit camps that they will be occupying while the project is underway will be furnished with proper stand pipes and ablution facilities,” Gumede said. According to some of the residents, the project is long overdue. Phindile Sibiya said: “We have been waiting for the houses for the past 10 years. People have resorted to stealing electricity because we felt that we were neglected,” Sibiya said. Ward committee member Maxwell Ndunge said the process to allocate residents to the transit camps has not yet started.

“The project is still underway. Transit camps are not even completed. “We appeal to the residents to calm down as the allocation process has not started. The residents will be notified when the transit camps are complete. “I can assure the people of Umbhayi that they will be provided with ablution facilities at the transit camps,” Ndunge said. Ward councillor Dolly Munien confirmed that she had received complaints from the residents claiming that they will be relocated to the transit camps without proper ablution facilities. “How can you put people into the transit camp without ablution facilities? Residents were upset and demanded answers from the housing officials,” Munien said.

Zero tolerance for drunk drivers this festive season ANDILE SITHOLE >>Andile.sithole@media24.com SAPS Tongaat, in conjunction with Metro Police and the Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI), will be out in full force this festive season, conducting crime awareness campaigns at the bus and taxi ranks to educate motorists and the community about safety. Police spokesperson in Tongaat Captain Patrick Ngwane said on Friday, October 12, that SAPS Tongaat and Metro will visit taxi ranks and distribute pamphlets to the residents and motorists. The aim of the awareness drive is to eradicate road fatalities ahead of the festive season. “In most cases we have discovered that the road accidents are caused by people under the influence of alcohol. “Since October is transport month, we intend to educate our residents about road safety. In so doing we will be decreasing the number of people dying in road accidents,” Ngwane said. MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison Mxolisi Kaunda said the department has seen a decrease of 1.2% in road fatalities between February and June this year. Kaunda was speaking at the provincial launch of Transport Month in Durban recently. With October being Transport Month, the department intends to promote peace and stability in the public transport industry. The campaign started 13 years ago to showcase transport infrastructure government has delivered and the opportunities that have been created to empower emerging contractors, as well as to raise awareness about road safety. During this month, government also aims to promote peace and stability in the public trans-

port industry. Ngwane added: “Police officers will conduct law enforcement operations and road blocks during this festive season to ensure that the community is safe. “Police will be on zero-tolerance for drunken drivers this festive season. That is why we decided to hold such events at the taxi and bus ranks to educate the community and motorists about road safety.” Following the commemoration of Transport Month, government departments will hold the 10th annual Road Safety Summit, set to take place on November 7 and November 8 in Pretoria, to look at road safety issues. The aim of the summit is to facilitate talks between government departments on how to implement better safety measures. During this month, eThekwini Transport Authority (ETA) has a programme of road safety activations at various public sites around the city aimed at reducing the accident rate within the municipality, to educate passengers, pedestrians and drivers on being safe road users, and to create a road-safety culture in which road users feel safe. ETA begins construction on two more dedicated bus lane routes within the first phase of the GO! Durban integrated public transport network. These next two routes form part of the eight road and one rail public transport network designed for the city. Construction will start this month on the route called C1, which begins at the intersection of the M21 and the MR577 in Newlands and runs to Umgeni Business Park. The other, called C9, will link Bridge City, KwaMashu to Umhlanga via the Phoenix Highway and through Cornubia to Umhlanga Newtown.

Stress levels contribute towards domestic violence by officers ANDILE SITHOLE >>Andile.sithole@media24.com

W

ORKING long hours and post-traumatic stress disorder have been cited as the main reasons police officers kill their partners and turn guns on themselves. This is according to researcher at the Institute for Security Studies, Dr Johan Burger. Apart from these factors that contribute to gender-based violence, according to Burger’s recent studies on police domestic issues, there are other factors that can be attributed to these incidents. An incident occurred in Waterloo where an off-duty police officer shot and killed his girlfriend and then turned the gun on himself on October 3. It is alleged that the two were embroiled in an argument at their flat when the shooting happened. Another person was also shot and rushed to hospital. Police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbhele told the Coastal Weekly: “We can confirm the incident that took place on October 3 at 11.30 pm in the Waterloo area. A woman and man were found dead at a flat. It is alleged that another victim sustained gunshot wounds and was taken to hospital for medical attention,” Mbhele said. Burger, said the increasing number of incidents where police kill their partners could be attributed to the fact that the police are always armed. “They are given these firearms to protect themselves. Police are trained on how to use firearms and, I think, when they are confronted or under a stressful situation, they think of using firearms. There is another factor that I think is most important as far as this matter is concerned. Police work under huge stress and

pressure. Their commanders expect them to improve performance at work,” Burger said. He said the number of police officers killing their partners increased drastically over the past six years. “This is unacceptable. I think political pressure that is put on the police is another reason cops resort to such actions. They are expected to reduce crime. [The] criticism that they come under adds up to the stress which leads to domestic violence,” Burger said. Burger said threats that are made towards the police is another aspect that contributes towards domestic violence. He said, as crime fighters, police are expected to fight crime on the frontlines. “We are aware that last year there were about 84 police officers killed in the line of duty. When they go out, they know that they are facing real danger and threats made against them. That also adds up to the burden that contributes to the stress level,” Burger added. The SAPS has a unit that offers counselling to the members in a bid to assist members in dealing with stress levels. “Station commanders should act immediately as soon as they notice that one of the members is going through some personal problems. Those officers should be interviewed to find out the root of the problem,” Burger said. Media and communications officer for the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) Richard Mamabolo said the organisation offers educational programmes for the police to assist them in dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder. “The police work under extremely difficult conditions. They attend crime scenes that have negative effects on their mental health condi-

Some of the members are apa-

Can cannabis be used to heal cancer patients? ANDILE SITHOLE >>Andile.sithole@media24.com FOLLOWING the Constitutional Court ruling on the private use of marijuana, major questions have been raised about whether using cannabis can really cure cancer and other ailments. Cannabis is a drug that comes from Indian hemp plants such as cannabis Sativa and cannabis Indica. It is a generic term used to denote several preparations of cannabis Sativa, commonly known as marijuana. CEO for CANSA Elize Joubert said: “CANSA cannot support the use of cannabis [excluding medically prescribed cannabidiol] as long as cannabis is still illegal in South Africa. CANSA cannot support the smoking of cannabis as smoking is dangerous to health, whether one speaks of tobacco products or cannabis.” Joubert said they cannot currently recommend the use of cannabidiol for use by cancer patients until such time as successful clinical trials have concluded indicating that the benefits of cannabidiol use outweigh any possible associated risks with the use of cannabidiol in the palliation and treatment of cancer. “CANSA however recognises the right of any patients to request a prescription for the use of cannabidiol from their doctor and also recognises the right of medical practitioners to prescribe cannabidiol to their patients,” Joubert said. Joubert added that CANSA is of the opinion that “there are currently medicines available for us in South Africa for the effective treatment of nausea, vomiting and other conditions related to cancer including palliative and end-of-life care until other complimentary may become available”.

thetic to go for this programme because they are under the impression that it might put their jobs on the line and perhaps they will not get promotions at work. That is the reason why police officers end up killing their partners and committing suicide. It’s due to personal problems that they go through,” Mamabolo said.

Believers Breakthrough Chapel BELIEVERS Breakthrough Chapel (BBC), a Bible based Christian Organisation, was founded by Prophet Jeffery Ghattey in Chatsworth in 2009. Prophet Ghattey hails from Ghana and was chosen by God in a vision to come to South Africa to work amongst deserving communities. The vision of BBC is to touch the lives of people spiritually and physically through teaching, preaching and publishing the word of faith, by uplifting the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and developing men and woman to their full potential to serve humanity. BBC currently has two branches, one in Chatsworth and another in Merebank. This ministry has impacted greatly, in a positive way, among the families of these communities. Many people have given their lives to Jesus Christ through this ministry. Prophet Ghattey, together with his team of Pastor Gladys Ghattey and Pastor Terrence Gounden, work tirelessly to bring miracles and healing to many. Through prayer and prophesy, doors of employment have opened, illness has been cured,

miracle births have taken place, marriages have been restored and new entrepreneurs have emerged. Prophet Ghattey is renowned for exorcising demonic spirits. This is his main forte. Demons literally “flee” from his presence; such is the power of the Holy Ghost he exudes. People gather from far and wide to listen to this ministry and take a portion of its blessings. Prophet Ghattey and his team have also done extensive work in Tongaat. Many in this community would bear testament to the life changing miracles they have encountered through this powerful ministry. Fortunately for the community of Tongaat, BBC will be hosting a three night crusade at the Belvedere Community Hall in Tongaat from October 23 to October 25 at 7 pm. We encourage all who need a breakthrough in their lives, in whatever sphere of life, to attend. Don’t miss out on your portion of the miracles that are about to take place. “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel” Mark 16:15 -Supplied

Key issues in estate planning – part two By Juggie Govender of East Coast Financial Services (Pty) Ltd – FSP 44760 THE PROS AND CONS OF A TRUST Trusts have many benefits, but you should probably not establish a trust if your only reason for doing so is to save estate duty. ADVANTAGES OF A TRUST - Assets can be protected against creditors and for the benefit of people who are unable to look after them themselves. Assets can also be protected for generations to come. - A trust can protect the interests of beneficiaries such as minor children, a disabled child, or a spouse with a degenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s. DISADVANTAGES OF A TRUST - The main one is that if you set up a trust correctly you will no longer have control over your assets. The trustees collectively

must decide how to manage the assets in the trust. If the original founder of the trust runs the trust as though the assets in it are his or her personal assets, the trust could be attacked, for example, by a former spouse, etc. To avoid risk, invest productively and obtain expert advice. Trustees can be sued for not carrying out their duties. - The other disadvantage of a trust is that the administration can be time-consuming and costly. Proper records must be kept, tax returns submitted and, in some cases, trusts must be audited. TRUSTEES WILL DECIDE WHO IS PAID RETIREMENT SAVINGS Savings in your occupational retirement fund, retirement annuity fund, and preservation fund, as well as any group life assurance, become payable on your death, but you cannot always expect the savings to be paid out as you have stipulated on a beneficiary nomination form. The beneficiary

nomination form is only an indication to the trustees of the fund of how you would like your retirement savings to be distributed. The trustees will determine how to distribute the savings according to section 37C of the Pension Funds Act. In terms of this section, the trustees have to trace your dependants, and then any persons who are financially dependent on you, say, an aged parent, and distribute your retirement savings equitably among them. Only if your dependants have sufficient funds would the trustees consider anyone else you have nominated as a beneficiary. Your assets in a tax-incentivised retirement-savings fund do not attract estate duty in your estate. YOU CAN CHOOSE BENEFICIARIES OF A LIVING ANNUITY Living annuity investments fall outside of the Pension Funds Act, so you can nominate the beneficiaries whom you would like to inherit your living annuity investments. These

investments can be drawn either as an income or a lump sum (after tax). Recent legislation stipulates that it is not possible for one beneficiary to draw an income and for another to take a lump sum: all the beneficiaries must make the same choice. Living annuity assets do not attract estate duty in your estate. BUY LIFE COVER TO PAY OFF LIABILITIES If your estate will not have enough liquidity to pay off your liabilities, you will most probably have to take out life cover that will pay out when you die and cover these liabilities. If you have young children, you may require additional life cover, because, without your income, your surviving spouse will most probably struggle to raise your children. Carefully review the beneficiaries of your life policies. While a policy to support your surviving spouse and children should probably name your spouse as the beneficiary,

It doesn’t help vestigation for peddling influence. It was that they were fired for refusing to do inevitable that the two roles he played wrong. — fundraising and fixing — would at some point collide. He describes a meeting he had with local businesspeople — and potential donors — as follows: “Ravi Naidoo was forthright, FSP No. 44760 | Licensed Financial | Services Provider | INSURANCE even persistent.

“Contracts with the metro took inordinately long to finalise, he continued, and the metro was a slow payer. Masakeni also had to disburse large ‘retention fees’ on their contracts, which were held by the city as a guarantee against performance.” The description continues: “He wanted to have these retention fees released in exchange for bank guarantees. The transaction he offered was simple: release the retention fees and he would make a donation. “Such an open request to exert influence for money took me by surprise. I was uncomfortable and unsure how to respond. Didn’t this contradict the principles we had only recently agreed on [in the Regional Task Team] fundraising committee?” To give Naidoo what he wanted, Olver had to get the municipality’s chief finance officer, Trevor Harper, involved, as he would have to authorise the deal. Olver writes after this: “Trevor was willing to look into the retention fees, as well as earlier payment on some invoices, in exchange for a discount. “He indicated that this was standard practice, but I was still uneasy. I felt that we were sailing quite close to the wind, not least [and this is the crunch] I had involved metro officials in facilitating fundraising for the ANC, and even though they seemed familiar with this sort of arrangement, the influence we were peddling was alarmingly close to the dodgy transactions I had been investigating ...” Often, when such cases go public, it is the senior officials who walk away with millions in golden handshakes. They go off and sit at home or go on holiday while the storm dies down, before they get their next deployment. Some are even known to have mastered the age-old art

of shedding tears in front of media cameras in order to appear seriously heartbroken and ashamed by their “innocently carried out” activities. Now, imagine for a minute what happens in cases where the senior, often politically connected deployee, agrees to play the game, only to have a “politically naïve” middle manager (with both eyes on the PFMA and totally unaware of the political machinations at play) refuse to attach his or her signature to the thick pile of documents placed before him or her, without first being given the time to read through them. What do you think happens to such government officials? These are probably the people whose sheer volume of files choke the CCMA system. Cases may be lost for a lack of funds, if the CCMA sends them to the Labour Court, or dropped following intimidation. They are the silent whistle-blowers who should be financially supported and legally protected from harm, for without them a lot of information that has found itself in the hands of investigative journalists and the public in recent times would not have seen the light of day. So, could it be that for as long as it remains opaque, political party funding drives corruption by government officials, who find themselves forced to choose between serving the interests of all South Africans — as required by law — and looking the other way, ending up paying with their personal reputations and hardearned careers? Who stands to pay the price if the status quo is left to continue? — Fin24. • Solly Moeng is brand reputation management adviser.

a policy you take out to provide liquidity in your estate should most probably name your estate as the beneficiary. Remember that life policies, with some exceptions — most notably ones that pay out to your spouse — are dutiable in your estate. This means you should take out more life cover than you will require to pay the liabilities in your estate, because the liabilities may include a higher amount of estate duty.

Relentless rise in petrol price SOME people still remember when the petrol price went over R1 for a litre and the pumps had to be recalibrated. Now, as the oil price appears to be heading towards $100 a barrel ... the prospect of R20 a litre looms large. Today, motorists are coughing up R16,49 a litre, which is R2 more than a year ago.... The oil price and the exchange rate are both subject to global dynamics, and so largely beyond the control of the government. In spite of U.S. President Donald Trump’s grandiose declarations of breaking free from globalism, that is not an option in the real world, however well it plays to a flat-Earth audience. Be that as it may, commuters are punch-drunk from this relentless rise in petrol costs, and as the ripple effects spread there is not a sector of the economy that is not affected. It is not an exaggeration to say that for some South Africans who are now lucky enough to have a basic job, it is becoming unaffordable even to get to work. The only possible defence against this corrosion of lifestyles and prospects is to have a strong economy...This we do not have. In part this can be ascribed to an incoherence of policy on the part of a government which finds itself paralysed by a ruling party, unable to agree even with itself on priorities which have any relation to a complex socioeconomic environment. Furthermore, citizens know that one of the reasons their wallets are emptier than they need be is that the country’s assets have been pilfered, nay pillaged, and the government has to make up the difference by picking our pockets. -Supplied

SCHOOL SCENE

Pupils benefit from holiday classes

The Little Angels Club pupils dream big and take charge of their future.

T

HROUGH a variety of academic and life-skills enhancement courses held on Saturdays and school holidays, Protec helps prepare pupils from previously disadvantaged communities for successful integration into the work place and technological and engineering fields in particular. The October holidays were no exception and all Protec pupils had revision classes in mathematics and physical science to prepare them for the end of year exams. Grade 10 pupils also enjoyed a wellness workshop facilitated by Kheth’Impilo, an organisation striving for an Aids-free generation. Topics such as peer pressure, sexual health, self–discipline and making right choices emphasised the importance of pupils accepting responsibility for, and taking control of, their lives. Grade 11 pupils were also extremely privileged to attend a business workshop hosted by Unilever. The focus of the day was a team challenge that showed the pupils all the research and development that goes into producing a product. Protec manager Marion Takis said: “Realising how much science goes into the development of every product was quite an eye-opener for the pupils. Suddenly the im-

Grade 10 pupils with Kheth’Impilo facilitators. portance of Physics and Math, even for producing packet soup, has taken on a whole new meaning.” Grade nine pupils enjoyed a four-day planning for life workshop, facilitated by Joshua Inzalo, a non-profit organisation founded by Protec Alumni Snothando Sebotsa. The workshop focused on empowering the pupils with the values, knowledge

and skills to make wise and informed life choices. Takis added: “As a non-profit organisation, Protec is entirely dependent on the generosity of our sponsors and it is thanks to them that we are able equip these young people with the knowledge, skills and values needed for meaningful and productive adult life.” — Supplied

THE Little Angels Club in Metcalfe hosted a career day at the school recently. Playschool principal Ranhika Brijnath said the idea behind career day was to stimulate their curiosity. “Preschool children are inquisitive and curious about the world around them. An activity like a career day is not only stimulating and fun but also teaches them about different jobs and how each one plays a role in our community,” Brijnath said. It also added excitement to their school day, she said. She added: “Apart from being an exciting activity, it also allows for learning and provides exposure to various life experiences,” she said. Some of the pupils were eager and ready to start serving their community. Jaiden Pillay wants to serve and pro-

tect everyone as a police officer, while Aariya Govender wants to be a doctor so she can give everyone a lollipop because she feels sorry about giving them injections. Maheera Gounden envisions a life as a designer to the famous with Talia Reddy, and making the world better through medicine. Brijnath encouraged the parents to believe in their children: “Do not discourage and allow them to believe their dreams are unrealistic. You are their greatest supporters so encourage their dreams and they will achieve them.” To the children, she said: “Keep on dreaming big and grow up to become whoever you wish to be. If you don’t succeed the first time, try again and keep trying because practise make perfect.” — Supplied

weeklywheels Hauling loads and people in stylish and reliable comfort WHERE IT FITS IS Honda’s HR-V a small-to-medium SUV, an MPV, or maybe a crossover? It has features of all of these. Whatever the case, it performs its load and people-carrying functions stylishly, comfortably, decently economically and more reliably than many others. Honda has an excellent reputation for that. It slots neatly between the company’s BR-V and CR-V offerings. Although it has been around in other parts of the world since 1999, we first saw it in 2015. It now accounts for a good percentage of Honda SA’s sales, averaging 101 units per month over the past year. Now, as then, its two-model lineup consists of two trim levels and two engines — a 1.5-litre Comfort and 1.8-litre Elegance. As its name implies, the Elegance level is, well, more elegant. That means leather upholstery rather than fabric; warmed front seats; automatic LED headlamps and daytime running lights; automatic, dual zone climate control; six, rather than four, speakers in the sound system; rear-parking sensors and camera; push-button starting; folding external mirrors and rain-sensing wipers. Both levels feature alloy wheels, one-touch powered windows, cruise control with speed limiter, six air bags, IsoFix baby seat anchors, ABS brakes with EBA and EBD, hill holder, vehicle stability control, hands-free telephone and music streaming via Bluetooth and an on-board computer. Also common to both is the latest generation of Honda’s constant velocity transmission with

electronic stepping. This provides seven virtual gears and behaviour closely approximating a good torque converter automatic. It works much better than earlier CVTs, so feel confident about trying it out. Other engineering details include McPherson strut front suspension, a torsion beam at the back, disc brakes at both ends, electrically assisted power steering and an electric parking brake. Apart from being able to activate and release itself, it’s more dependable because it doesn’t rely on fallible humans to engage it properly. It never needs adjusting either. As a matter of interest, according to a recent British survey, only 39% of car manufacturers still use traditional hand brakes throughout their model ranges. As before, the 1.5 has a 40-litre fuel tank and it stands tall with 185 mm of ground clearance versus the 1800’s 50 litres and 170 mm. The bigger tank evidently extends downwards a bit. New to the Comfort is a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) that enables screen mirroring of smartphones and access to device-specific functions, like video and photo files and GPS navigation, on its equally new 6,8” touchscreen. Finally, the colours — new to the range are Passion Red (about time) and Brilliant Sporty Blue (equally overdue). Existing shades are Lunar Silver metallic (a fairly dark grey), Modern Steel metallic (a darker shade of slate), Ruse Black metallic (a sort of purplish, mulberry shade) and White Orchid pearlescent.

Former Tongaat bowler to represent SA F

ORMER Tongaat resident, Robby Govender has been selected to represent South Africa in the 2018 Men’s World Ten Pin Bowling championship from November 23 to December 5 in Hong Kong. This will be his second international tournament after competing in the World Cup in China in 2016. Govender has been bowling since 1989. He has had two perfect games in his career, the last one in April this year. A perfect game is when one has 12 consecutive strikes, (where the bowling ball knocks down all the pins in one go) in a game. Govender has had good showings at local tournaments in 2018. He won the SA Doubles and SA Singles titles which are major tournaments in the South African tournament calendar.

He represented his province (Central Gauteng) twice this year in the inter-provincials. In the last inter-provincial tournament, he came away with one gold, two silver and one bronze medal. Govender is hoping to start coaching in his free time and get youngsters involved in the sport, hopefully growing the sport. He currently assists his fellow bowlers, be it during league or when they join him during his practice sessions. Funding is always a problem where it comes to sporting events, and any assistance is always welcome, he said. Should you wish to assist Govender fulfil his dreams, contact him on 082 318 8179. -Supplied

ANDILE SITHOLE >>Andile.sithole@media24.com UTHONGATHI FC players are still optimistic to win the league despite their recent loss to TS Sporting FC at Princess Magogo Stadium. Team’s spokesperson Nkosinathi Chili said their players took a short FIFA break to prepare for the next

game against Richards Bay FC that will take place on October 21. “We played three games in seven days and that was reason we lost 1-0 to TS Sporting FC. We believe that our boys will have enough time to prepare for their upcoming game. The management of the team is impressed with the results of the tem in the log,” Chili said.

YEARLY MEMORIAL SERVICE of the late

Dramatic race to the finish line THE ADreach Ocean Heroes offered some exciting racing on Sunday in a light north east in four-foot choppy waves. There were two races on the day and the best 10 men and five ladies progressed through to the final race. In the men’s final, Gene Prato was able to claw his way to the front of the race on the final board leg however, in the midbreak, the waves held him up which provided opportunity for Nisbet and Botha to catch up. In the last 100 meters, Nisbet was able to jump off his board first and start his dash up the beach, while being chased down by Botha. In a desperate sprint for the finish, Botha was able to defeat Nisbet in the dying milli-

metres to win his first ADreach Ocean Heroes title. Race director Wade Krieger remarked that he has never seen such a dramatic finish, with Botha and Nisbet racing their hearts out. During the post-race interview, Botha commented: “I knew I had to stay up there in the first ski leg, so I was super happy with the win.” Botha also explained it will keep him training harder to defend his title in 2019. In an impressive third place, Gene Prato was able to skilfully body surf his way onto the podium, followed by the experienced Bouman in fourth spot, who had led the first half of the final race. In the ladies race it was the focused

Alice Edwards who was able to successfully defend her title in true grit after being behind in the first ski leg. Edwards commented that she didn’t have a great race in the start as she fell off on the ski. In spite of this, she was able to push hard to catch up. She explained that defending her title is 2019 is a good pressure, as it will motivate her to keep on training. In second place, the young Tamryn Mckie was also able to come back from being behind, followed by the determined Carmel Bilson. It was also great to see Paige Horn and Sasha Corris-Nordengen finish in the top five against a talented field. — Supplied.

ORE than 100 members of the Verulam Athletic Club embarked on an ambitious treble community challenge in the past three weeks coupled with its regular airport and time trial weekend challenges. This mammoth task was met with dedication and sacrifice for the club’s community outreach programmes. First off was the 1860 Challenge followed by last week’s Verulam Child and Family Welfare charity run and this past weekend’s KZN Blind and Deaf Eye Can Walk campaign over 4 km and 8 km. The three events co-ordinated by VAC’s Anand Naicker saw many fill the
