Businesses brace themselves for water restrictions in Harding FEVER REPORTER

severe drought situation from its worst state. It was reported that the Harding treatment works are no longer able to abstract water at the Harding Dam, resulting in a shut down of the treatment works and forcing the use of the Weza



ARDING businessman and chairperson of the Harding Business Chamber Collin Davenhill said his business will not suffer by the implementation of a water conservation programme that was announced by the Ugu District Municipality last Friday. Davenhill said he connected boreholes at his business and other businesses should have done so to avoid a water shortage. “A Harding drought was announced a long time ago and most businesses are aware it, meaning they should have done something,” said Davenhill. On October 18, the district municipality announced strict plans relating to water conservation at the Harding CBD and townships. “Ugu District Municipality is faced with an uphill battle of coming up with stringent plans in an effort to maximise community compliance in water conservation and, at the same time, mitigate ‘Day Zero’, which is upon us,” said Ugu District Municipality mayoralty and communications senior manager France Zama in a statement. Zama added that Harding is the most affected area, with very little rainfall recorded to shift the current

“The municipality has also taken a stance to implement stringent water restrictions to all Ward 3 households to ensure careful use of water,” elaborated Zama, who said Ugu has since developed a water shedding time table. He said they also installed 24 storage tanks in strategic areas of domestic residences, however only five of those tanks are still available as the rest were either stolen or vandalised. The municipality considers water as life and has since committed to add five more tanks. Residents were asked to abide by the call to safeguard each and every drop of water available and put all water and sanitation related queries, leaks and burst pipes and illegal connection matters to ward councillors or call 0800 WATER (92837) or SMS 44751.

Two children (6) drown at local dam TWO children, aged six years old, reportedly drowned in a dam in Newtonville, outside Creighton, recently. “It was said that the children had removed their school uniforms and went to the dam on October 17. When they didn’t return home, their

parents and the community searched for them until they discovered their school uniforms next to the dam and their bodies as well,” said SAPS spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ncongo. Police have opened inquest dockets. — Supplied.

Insurance company reports multiple cases of fraud FEVER REPORTER >> AN INVESTIGATION was launched after three fraudulent claims were reportedly made to an insurance company based in Kokstad last week. It was reported that one claim was not processed because documents that were used by the claimant were untrue, said SAPS spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ncongo, who confirmed that police are investigating three cases of fraud. Ncongo said the first crime was committed between April and September, while the second occurred between October 2018 and October 2019.

“In these cases, suspects attempted to claim for deceased people who had died before the inception of their policies, pretending as if they had recently died by using fake documents,” said Ncongo, who added that one claim was not processed as the insurance company discovered that the deceased person, which the suspects claimed for, had died before the start of the policy. A sum of R33 500 was defrauded at the company after another suspect wrongly claimed for a deceased person. Ncongo said fraudulent documents were used by the suspects and he noted that police investigations are underway as they intend to arrest the suspects.

‘My family’s lives are at risk’ SIPHELELE NKETO >>


KOKSTAD family claims their lives are being put at risk by an electrical box located inside their yard that does not close properly. Themba Faku, from Thafeni, said that, on several occasions, he has found the box open, endangering the lives of his family and children. Faku said he reported the matter to the Greater Kokstad Municipality (GKM) on numerous occasions but it has not been attended to. “I am worried about the children who always play around the area. Sometimes I even stop them from playing on top of it as they do not know it is dangerous,” he said. Faku said he started staying at the property in 2007 and at that time the box was properly closed. As time went by, the box was vandalised but no one knows who vandalised it. When the Fever visited the residence on Wednesday, electric wires were exposed outside of the box and the doors were wide open. Faku said he fenced his yard to prevent criminals from entering it to steal electrical wires from the box for quick cash. He also said that a new electric box was built next to his yard. When it was built he hoped that the problematic one in his yard would be removed, unfortunately that was not the case. In a response to queries, GKM spokesperson Nthabeleng Matshoba said the electric box will be removed, saying: “The box is not working and it will be removed from the yard by the municipality.”

OMEGA NGEMA >> THE community of Umzumbe came out in large numbers to witness the Kwa­Zulu-Natal MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison, Bheki Ntuli, hand over a contractor for the construction of the Gumatane uMzimkhulu River bridge to the community of Umzumbe and uMuziwabantu local municipalities last week. The Gumatane uMzimkhulu vehicle bridge is located at the Nguza area, linking the Sidalea area under the Umzumbe Local Municipality and uMuziwabantu Local Municipality. Upon completion, the bridge will serve as a link between the main road

P68-1 and the N2. The bridge will also reduce travelling distances and provide the Umzumbe and uMuziwabantu communities with access to ten schools, local churches and a clinic. A total of R176,8 million has been set aside for the construction of this bridge. In 2016, eleven people died in an accident when their car ploughed into a slough near the river while they were returning home from a church service. As a result, the community asked the department to build a bridge to avert further accidents. During his speech, Ntuli said the department was aware that the Ugu district had several infrastructure challenges. He said the department had com-

menced with plans on fixtures of roads under Chief Madlala and Chief Shinga while they continued to maintain roads in other areas as well. “We have noted with concern that some projects are being started and stopped and many more are being done in five-kilometre strips every financial year. This has resulted in a huge cost for the department, overriding the budget. “For this reason, we decided that it was better to focus on a few tasks, completing them and then moving on to other projects,” said Ntuli. In attendance at the handover were various area chiefs as well as uMuziwabantu Municipality Mayor Dixie Nciki and Umzumbe acting mayor Lundolo Zungu.

Radio host: ‘I want to thank everyone that helped me win’ SIPHELELE NKETO >> IT was no easy task for The Voice of Matat Community Radio host Mbuyiseli Magoqoza to win the Best Community Radio Show Award, however it became a reality on October 16 when his award was delivered to his radio station in Matatiele. Magoqoza competed with other radio hosts for the category at the Amagugu Music Awards. “To win the award, I had to travel to schools, meet people at public gatherings and announce on radio asking for votes, and that was not easy. “I want to thank my colleagues and listeners and everyone who helped me win the award,” said Magoqoza, popularly known as DJ Ntombi’azimqomanga. Magoqoza was also nominated in the Best Community Radio DJ category, which he did not win. Magoqoza hosts a traditional music pro-

gramme called Zindala Zombini between 10 pm and midnight on Thursdays and promotes culture on the Zisemandlelweni show from 10 am to 1 pm on Saturdays. Magoqoza’s interest in radio started at a young age when he was growing up in the rural village of Lukholweni outside Matatiele. “When I was young I used to pretend to host a radio programme at sports events and at school without knowing that one day I would work in radio,” he said. With regards to his interest in hosting traditional music programmes, he said he was inspired by the late Umhlobo Wenene FM radio DJ Saba Mbixane and former Ukhozi FM presenter Ngizwe Mchunu. He said his career in radio started when The Voice of Matat Community Radio was opened last year. His dream is to partner with traditional leaders and communities to promote culture and develop young talent.

AN ACTIVIST, PEOPLE-CENTRED LEGISLATURE


HE South African National Biodiversity Institute (Sanbi) in collaboration with other partners hosted a three-day CatchmentBased Indaba on ecological infrastructure at the uMzimvubu catchment in the Matatiele Town Hall on Monday, October 21. Held under the theme “Amanzi aphuma apha”; meaning “the water comes from here”; the indaba showcased and enabled learning around the practice of investing in ecological infrastructure for water, food security and rural livelihoods across different sectors. Lessons were shared on strengthening water governance at a catchment level in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, and Limpopo. Opening the event on Monday, Matatiele Municipality Mayor Momelezi Mbedla said the municipality had worked with strategic partners in the local sphere, initiating programmes to rehabilitate water sources, wetlands and estuaries.

He added that climate change is not only a threat to the future generation, but it requires all people to come up with creative ways to save the earth. “We can no longer afford talk shops on these issues, we have to avail resources and implement programmes now,” said Mbedla, adding that the municipality had identified agriculture as a sector that could contribute to the economy of Matatiele. He said that the risks of extreme weather events, such as droughts and floods, had an influence on agriculture, fishing, forestry, and naturebased tourism, and that affects communities who do not have the capacity to manage changes. “When we were growing up, we never thought that today we would be talking about water-challenges in South Africa, and it is clear that we are rapidly growing into a water-scarce country, particularly due to broader changes which are caused by the climate change and global warming,” he added. The Indaba was closed on Wednesday, October 23 with a number of resolutions.

Young architect shares his story of inspiration, tragedy and success SIPHELELE NKETO >> HAILING from the rural village of Caguba in Port St Johns, Sibabalwe Lunika (26) is one of the young entrepreneurs in Kokstad who are an inspiration to young people. With no capital, Lunika established an architectural company called LM Design Studio in partnership with a friend, who died in a car accident a few months after the launch of the company. When LM Design Studio was started in April 2017, the company had no office equipment besides two laptops. Through hard work, the company slowly grew from designing small houses and garages in Kokstad to the point where they were called on to design commercial buildings and residential flats and they even signed contracts with big companies. “I tried my best to advertise the company to businesses and municipalities and, as a result, I now have clients in Mthatha, Durban, Matatiele, and other areas, including other municipalities,” said Lunika, who said that, although he never knew the word “architecture” when he was at primary school, he knew what path he wanted to follow. When he graduated in 2015, Lunika worked at an architectural company in Kokstad where he learned a great deal. While there he was inspired to open his own company. Lunika said losing his business partner in November 2017 was heart-breaking, and it affected the production of the company for a period of about two months. He said his family supported him in dealing with the trauma. In the next few years, Lunika hopes to expand


Sibabalwe Lunika of LM Design Studio. his company and open more branches in Mthatha. He is also passionate about his community, and often donates gifts to orphans and partners with local stakeholders on charity programmes. “I also help other small businesses to grow and unemployed youth with business ideas. “Small businesses need to be supported by government because they contribute to the growth of the economy and create employment. As a young person, I believe in hard work to keep the company growing. I also want other youth to do the same to change the country,” he said.

Young eco-conscious pupils join the cry to stop plastic pollution.

Stem the tide of plastic waste T

HE Commonwealth Litter Programme (Clip), an international science and outreach programme working in partnership with governments, universities, NGOs and communities in countries across the Commonwealth to take action on plastics entering the oceans, has announced the introduction of the Stamp Out Marine Plastic Pollution (Stomp) Awards in South Africa. The Stomp awards form part a nationwide activation ahead of the Cape Town “Clip Innovation Conference: Stem the tide of plastic waste in Africa” in Cape Town on December 4 and December 5. The conference, which is co-hosted together with the Sustainable Seas Trust, aims to practically address Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) solutions to tackling and preventing marine litter. Entries to the Stomp Awards will be showcased at the conference and all entrants are invited to register for this free conference. Clip is led by the United Kingdom through the Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas), funded by the UK’s Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), and has partnered with Green Corridors, a Durban-based non-profit organisation to roll out the awards programme in SA. “Up to 90% of marine litter is made up of plastics, originating from both land and sea-based sources. This makes plastic pollution one of the most widespread problems facing our oceans today. “If we are to tackle this issue, urgent, coordinated and effective action is paramount,” said Thomas Maes, principal marine litter scientist of Clip. The Stomp Awards recognise and reward individuals, civil society organisations, interest groups, and youth that are taking action and making an impact on the reduction of marine

plastic pollution in SA. “These awards create a fantastic opportunity for individuals and groups to come together to act, create and innovate with a common purpose,” said Maes, adding that their aim is to educate and communicate to a wide range of communities the urgent need to change behaviours around the use of plastics, and to bring tangible and actionable opportunities for change to the forefront. The awards, which are open to all South African residents, are grouped into four categories: Technology or Technical Design, Product Development, Inspire through Creativity, and Action. The Technical Design category is recommended for pupils and researchers in the science, technology and engineering fields who are working with new and innovative design and or technologies that will help reduce or manage plastic pollution and encourage circular economy thinking; while the Product Development category focuses on registered small to medium micro-enterprises who have consumer products or services that are innovative and allow consumers to reduce their plastic waste. The Inspire through Creativity category is divided into an adult (17 years and older) and youth section (16 years and younger), to encourage people to use creative arts, artwork, photography, short films, dance, sculpture, graffiti, advert campaigns, or any other art form to inspire people into creating a better planet. A Special Recognition Award for Action Category recognises individuals, schools, civil society organisations or informal groups for the work they do on implementing clean-ups, or developing and implementing projects to mitigate waste, reduce plastic, change behaviours or create awareness at a local, community level. Online entries on will be open until November 8.

Excitement as matric exams get underway SIPHELELE NKETO >>


T WAS an exciting moment for a number of matrics who wrote English Paper One on Wednesday, October 23. The pupils want to make parents and teachers proud by obtaining good results. Matric pupil Yandani Van Wyk (19) from Shayamoya Area Secondary School in Kokstad said 2019 was a challenging year with lots of school work. “As the time of writing exams has arrived, I want to study hard to get good results by the end of the year,” said van Wyk, while Akhona Jali (18) said she was nervous when she entered the exam room but remarked that she did not find the paper difficult. A number of politicians and people

across the country have wished matrics the very best of luck. African National Congress (ANC) Harry Gwala Regional Youth League secretary Qiniso Ntozakhe also wished matrics all the best and called for the community and parents to provide the necessary support to all pupils writing their final exams. “Education is a ticket towards a brighter future, which belongs to those who prepare for it today. We wish the class of 2019 all the best in their final examinations, which commenced on October 23 and run until November 28. “We are calling upon the entire community of the Harry Gwala District, including parents and teachers, to provide necessary support and resources to all pupils as they push for the final preparations,” said Ntozakhe.

ST Monica’s Diocesan School hosted a matric tea event, with matric pupils and their parents attending, on Friday, October 18. It was a day of recalling past memories with words of wisdom and encouragement from Father D. Lloyd Jones and the school principal. Matrics wore their marked shirts and received gifts from the school.

The school is extremely proud of this year’s matrics and wished them well as they prepare for their final exams. In other school news, the school recently held U7 and U9 mini-cricket games with King Edward High School and Bergview Primary School. The mini-cricket helped pupils in learning new skills. — Supplied.

He said that the youth league has great confidence that the class of 2019 will improve on the region’s pass rate compared to the previous years, adding that the Harry Gwala District has not performed well in past years. “We have hope that this class of 2019 will raise the bar and live up to our expectations. “Let us all join hands and ensure that these young stars and future leaders are fully supported during this dark and bitter period,” added Ntozakhe. The Congress of South African Students (Cosas) national organiser, Zithulele Ndlela, said the start of final exams for matrics was smooth, although they are not happy with load shedding experienced by a number of pupils during their preparations for exams last week.

Pupils get career savvy at expo SIPHELELE NKETO >> PUPILS from different high schools in Kokstad were exposed to the wide array of careers when they attended a career exhibition event, hosted at the Kokstad Skills Development Centre, on Monday, October 21. “Pupils need to be equipped with information to choose the right ca-

reers. “When we conduct career programmes in the country, we focus on remote areas, like Kokstad, to benefit young people,” said Vusi Nkosi, the senior manager of the Services Sector Education and Training Authority (Seta). Presentations were made to inform pupils on career opportunities and bursaries.

The Greater Kokstad Municipality welcomed the initiative, which will open opportunities to many young people. The Kokstad Skills Development Centre was funded by Services Seta to provide skills needed in the area. Pupils like Mnqobi Thobela and Nandipha Mahlaba were grateful for the opportunity to attend the event as they learned many things.

Pupils who received awards with their teachers at the event.

School honours their top achievers IBISI Senior Secondary School in the rural village of uMzimkhulu rewarded pupils for outstanding performance in their school work at a school event held on October 10. The event was supported by a number of residents, including Ward Councillor Nonstikelelo Mafa. “The school management team, school governing body and teachers could not allow the history of success of the school to be distorted, as we put our heads together and decided to reward pupils who achieved outstandingly in their exams,” said school principal, Mabandla Dlamini. Pupils who received the best results in their subjects received certificates of appreciation and trophies, while Phatheka Sosibo from Grade 10, Olwethu Baqwa in Grade 11 and Azola Mbiza from Grade 12 received spe-

cial honours for being top achievers in their classes. The school’s organising committee members were able to source donations of sanitary towels from Sphokazi Thiam, who has supported the school in past years. There was also entertainment by the school’s choir, who inspired many guests, and the day ended with laughter and happiness. The school was established in 1984 and has produced excellent results, as well as leaders like Dr Nobuhle Nkabane and former Harry Gwala District Municipality Mayor Mluleki Ndobe, who now works as the deputy speaker in the KZN Provincial Legislature. Former ANCYL secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa also attended the school. — Supplied.

‘The power of learning’ you can discipline yourself to attain the vision. Discipline is the ability to submit yourself physically, mentally and emotionally to that vision,” she said, adding that studying must take place at a time when highest focus is possible, for example during the morning or evening. She warned pupils to be selective when it comes to friends at this time of the year and keep close those friends who have the same vision. When the vision is self-driven, there will be no fears which might cause one to consider or even take his or her life for failure.Vision is also linked to long-lasting learning. Good luck to all who are writing, this foundation of learning must be adopted at all times in preparation for a successful life. — LIZIWE NTSHENGULANA

GKM TO HOST CTO MEETING In an effort to boost economic activities in key economic sectors, the municipality facilitated the establishment of the Community Tourism Organisation (CTO). Continuous capacitation of the CTO is conducted in partnership with the Department of Economic Develop-

the draft constitution, inform the business plan and related activities of the CTO for the ensuing year and to gain access to opportunities (financial and non-financial) that are available. These opportunities include, but are not limited to: the recently advertised Operation Vula (financial), Tourism in the Green Economy (financial), and Grading Council (non-financial). For more information please contact the manager of local economic development, Antionette Whyte, at 039 797 6748 or 079 287 9593 or e-mail; alternatively, contact the chairperson of the Greater Kokstad CTO, Siphokazi Thiam, at 082 661 8455 or e-mail Until next time.

tries across the world, making it one of the most celebrated days on the United Nations (UN) calendar. These events promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all. The focus of the day is that food is a basic and fundamental human right. Yet, in a world of billions, over 820 million people worldwide are suffering from chronic undernourishment and 60% of women and almost five million children under the age of five die of mal-

nutrition-related causes every day. It’s also important to note that while millions go hungry, 672 million people suffer from obesity and a further 1,3 billion are overweight. We can change this. The Harry Gwala District of Kwa­Zulu-Natal, uMzimkhulu in particular, is not immune to the above declared statistics. The key role players in this programme are the Department of Health, Cogta, Department of Social Development, Department of Sport and Recreation, and other relevant stakeholders while being led by the Department of Agriculture. This year’s theme is “Our Actions Are Our Future. Healthy Diets for A #ZeroHunger World”.

On October 27, Agriculture MEC Bongiwe Sithole-Moloi will be commemorating this provincial programme in uMzimkhulu (Ward 10). Significantly, this day will be commemorated in the deepest rural area of this rural-based municipality, whereby food security needs to be improved. This is a strategic day to do so, therefore all community members and stakeholders are invited to be part of this prestigious event. Working with the House of Traditional Leaders and the Council of uMzimkhulu, the MEC is committed to making a traceable impact in the ordinary communities from villages. Until we meet again.

WHAT was taught throughout the year is now put to the test. Life coach and author Liziwe Ntshengulana motivated pupils to stay focused and be inspired during exam time, saying: “It is that time of the year where pupils have to show how much work they have done. “There must be a purpose of learning, and a clear vision that needs to be achieved,”she said, adding that learning is different from schooling and what is good about learning is that everyone retains what is learnt throughout life. In order for the years spent in school to be fruitful, young people must learn and, to learn successfully, there must be purpose of learning. “A clear vision is required to understand ways to go on achieving it and, when the vision is clear in your mind,


ment, Tourism and Environmental Affairs. The main responsibility of the CTO is to develop and adopt its constitution, which enables membership to actively participate in tourism and related activities. In addition, it is to ensure access to information relating to the provision of access to opportunities such as information and financial and nonfinancial assistance in the development of tourism actors (primary and secondary). Based on the above background, the municipality, in partnership with the CTO, invites all affected and interested stakeholders to a CTO meeting on Monday, October 28, at 2 pm, in the Supper Room. The purpose of the meeting is to consider the adoption of



every tree is swathed in pink and the term “breast cancer” is in your timeline more often than a Kardashian. And while awareness is incredibly important — regular check-ups and a healthy lifestyle are key to combating cancer — a flurry of information also creates room for confusion. In the world of science, it can take years of research and studies on large numbers of people to get a clear picture of what can and can’t increase or decrease your risk. That’s why you need to be extra careful where you get your information from. Here, we bust eight common myths and uncover the truth. MYTH#1: YOUNGER WOMEN ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE SUSCEPTIBLE. TRUTH: The older you get, the more at risk you are for any cancer, not the other way round, says Dr Melissa Wallace, head of research at the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA). “The majority of breast cancer patients in South Africa and abroad have typically been and still are women between the ages of 50 and 70 years,” said Dr Justus Apffelstaedt, a specialist surgeon with a particular interest in breast, thyroid and parathyroid health management. So why older women? It’s not entirely clear, but research has shown that it may be a result of the accumulation of ageassociated changes in a biochemical process that helps control genes. MYTH#2: CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE MVP OF BREAST CANCER TREATMENTS. TRUTH: “The most effective way to treat breast cancer is with a multi-disciplinary approach, combining a number of treatment options that include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and hormonal and biological agents,” said Apffelstaedt. The right treat-

ment for you will depend on the type and stage of cancer and how far it has spread. “Treatment can consist of surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy or biological or targeted therapies, which are new drugs that work differently to chemotherapy. A patient may have one of these treatments or a combination,” said Wallace. MYTH#3: IF YOU’RE A SMOKER, YOU’RE AUTOMATICALLY AT RISK FOR BREAST CANCER. TRUTH: “Many women will not necessarily increase the risk of getting breast cancer by smoking, but there is a subset of women with a specific genetic make-up that prevents them from detoxifying cancer-causing chemicals in cigarette smoke efficiently,” said Apffelstaedt. Those women do indeed have an increased risk of breast cancer when smoking. Places like 3×4 Clinics and DNAlysis can help you find out if you’re among them, but quitting is still a better option. MYTH#4: MAMMOGRAMS ARE PAINFUL. TRUTH: It shouldn’t be painful, but a little discomfort is normal. Plus, knowing the state of your breasts should outweigh any temporary unease. MYTH#5: MAMMOGRAMS ARE NOT A BIG DEAL IN BREAST CANCER TREATMENT. TRUTH: Not all mammograms are created equal. When it comes to screening for breast cancer, you want the best tech available, including an image produced by a mammogram specialist radiographer. “High-quality breast imaging will detect about 95% of all breast cancers. In such centres, women whose breast cancer is detected at screening will have the same survival chances as women without breast cancer,” said Apffelstaedt. MYTH#6: IT DOESN’T MAKE A

DIFFERENCE WHERE YOU’RE TREATED. TRUTH: “There can be a variation across facilities and provinces in terms of waiting periods for diagnosis and then waiting periods for accessing treatment,” said Wallace. The longer the waiting period, the worse the prognosis, since early treatment and detection are key. “In certain parts of the country, patients are experiencing unacceptable waiting periods to access treatment. CANSA is working hard to do what we can to address this at a national level,” she said. If you’re among those waiting, contact CANSA at MYTH #7: IT’S BEST TO REMOVE THE WHOLE BREAST WHEN YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER. TRUTH: A tumour in the breast will not kill you. What will? The spread of cancer to the brain and lungs, says Apffelstaedt, and Wallace agrees. “Whether or not the breast will be removed is entirely dependent on the type of breast cancer, the stage and how far it’s spread.” Plus, says Apffelstaedt, breast cancer often spreads to other areas early in the course of the disease, so a mastectomy won’t guarantee a better survival rate than breastconserving therapy. MYTH #8: YOU’RE MORE LIKELY TO GET BREAST CANCER AFTER A BREAST AUGMENTATION. TRUTH: “It may be hard for the doctor to see certain parts of your breast,” said Wallace. “The X-rays used in mammograms cannot go through silicone or saline implants well enough to show the breast tissue under them. This means that part of the breast tissue can be hard to see on a mammogram.” But studies show that women who undergo breast augmentation surgery and have breast implants are no more likely to develop breast cancer than women who don’t, says Apffelstaedt. — Supplied.

I am a well-known Taxi businesswoman in Newcastle KZN, I was born and grew up in Hibberdene and my contact number is 078 994 6710. I was on the verge of a financial breakdown when I read the miracle that BABA GASELA is doing to change the life of people going through financial problems. After contacting him, he explained so many different ways to change life but I chose the SHORT BOYS to put R1.8 million in my Capitec Bank Account and within 4 hrs I was very surprised to receive a bank notification that R1.8 million was deposited in my account and he said I must pay her back R500 000.00 only. I publish this story to inform everyone who has financial problems that BABA GASELA will change your financial problems. I am now a very successful businesswoman because of his miracles and powerful SHORT BOYS that deposited money in my account. If you want to change your life and be successful contact him now on:


I am successful businesswoman born in KZN and my cell number is 073 480 1208. To our fellow Southern Africans, its your time to make changes in your life in 2018 through BABA GASELA. I now live in Eastern Cape with my family because of business and companies that we have that BABA GASELA helped us to get through his wonderful powers and miracles that made me to be a LOTTERY WINNER and also helped my beloved husband to win LOTTERY. It all started when I read the miracles that BABA GASELA was performing changing the lives of people with their financial problems. I then contacted him for help because we were about to lose our houses because we were failing to pay our bond and loans from the banks. He gave us different ways but I chose to win LOTTO and in just 3hrs he gave me Lucky numbers that I used to play LOTTO. I was very surprised and shocked to see all the Lucky Numbers appearing on the draw and we shared the money by paying him 20% from the money I won and he also helped my husband to win the POWER BALL in November. He was very shocked with the results I got from the LOTTO because he had lost faith in Doctors, Herbalist and Sangomas after losing lots of money to them. It was until I called this Powerful Man that our lives changed. So to everyone who has been disappointed before with fake Doctors, I promise you don’t lose hope. BABA GASELA will change your life and your family to be a successful family like us because we are 100% financially stable and very successful because of his wonderful experience in herbs.

I am a businessman from Port Edward and my contact number is 082 864 2254. I am 45 yrs old and I had so many financial problems in my life before I contacted BABA GASELA. I publish this testimony to help other people who are in serious financial problems to call me anytime to hear how BABA GASELA changed my life to be successful again after I lost a lot of money to a person who called himself a herbalist from Mthatha. He promised to change my life but ended up messing up my life. I even sold my properties such as my cars and house just to do what he told me, then he vanished with my money. Everything changed again in my life after reading a page in Fever newspaper of people praising and thanking BABA GASELA for using SHort BoyS to deposit big amount of money into their bank accounts. Until I called him and he explained to me different ways like MAGIC WALLEt, rAtS, SHort BoyS, Lotto PoWEr BALL and CASINo. But because I wanted something to get the money same day then I asked for the short boys to put r3 million in my bank account and within 4 hrs the money was deposited in my account and I paid him r800,000 as agreed. My brother in-law couldn’t believe exactly what happened to me to be successful again after losing all my properties until I introduced him to BABA GASELA and he chose the MAGIC WALLEt that gave him r50 000 everyday and pays BABA GASELA r150 000 every week from the r350 000 he gets everyweek (7days). I want to tell the world that BABA GASELA can help everyone either you think you have bad luck or cursed or you have bad connections with your ancestors. I promise and guarantee you that BABA GASELA will change life completely and make your dreams come true in your family by ending your financial problems so that you can manage to pay the school fees for your kids and also help your family membes. SUCCESS USUALLy CoMES TO THOSE WHO ARE TOO BUSY LOOKING FOR IT, SO



I was born in Durban and I am now one of the successful women here in Durban, my number is 060 618 2357. To those who have serious financial problems, I am assuring you that the MAGIC WALLET of BABA GASELA will change your life forever. It all started when I read the true testimonies of different people that BABA GASELA changed their lives regarding their financial problems. I phoned BABA GASELA regarding my financial problems and he did explain different ways but I chose the MAGIC WALLET that helps me to get R25 000.00 each and every day and he promised me that I must use it for 12 months and pay him back R50 000.00 each and every week from the R175 000.00 that I get every week. Now I got my own shipping and trucking companies that I got through using the powerful MAGIC WALLET that BABA GASELA sent to me through a speed courier because I was far from his offices which I received within 24hrs after contacting him and it started working for me the same time. To my fellow business people that your things are not going fine or everyone who’s working but you still suffering in your life, don’t waste time because a successful life is waiting for you.



I am a married woman living in Pietermaritzburg, my number is 079 728 5026. I am one of the women who lost hope and lot of money to many fake Doctors, Sangoma and Herbalists. I was struggling in my life because of financial problems as I was working as a teacher in Pietermaritzburg until I met one of my old friends who I was together in the teaching college driving a very expensive car and she took me to her home which she had bought for cash without any loan or bond. I explained to her how I was struggling financially with my family and I begged her to tell me the secret behind her successful life. She gave me different newspapers with articles of different people thanking BABA GASELA on how he has helped end their financial problems. I never hesitated and I called BABA GASELA and he explained different ways but I was interested with the SHORT BOYS to put R3 million in my FNB account and within 4hrs I was shocked to receive a message from the bank that R3 million has been deposited into my account. I called BABA GASELA and it was a call of joy to ask him what must I do next with the money in my account and he just told me that I must transfer 25% to his account and I did it from the bank without any problems or question from the bank. Since then he never called or asked me anything again. I am living a beautiful and successful life that everyone deserves. I started my taxi business with that money and bought my dream house. My children are going to good schools now. No matter how hard and tough your financial problems are, I promise you that BABA GASELA will make you and your family to leave a better life.

GET RICH EASILY WITH MAMA HALU I was born in Newcastle but I now live in Margate and my number is 065 170 6672. Just because you have financial problems doesn’t mean you can’t have a successful life and be rich like others. After so many years trying to be rich and successful through different Sangomas, Herbalist and Doctors but ending up losing money to them and I lost hope that I will never be helped or maybe its bad luck that I was born with. Believe it or not, luck works with being at the right place at the right time. It alI started when I read the Testimony of Nombulelo Mbatha thanking and informing people of how MAMA HALU helped her through the MAGIC WALLET that helped her to get back her lost business by getting R20,000 every day and paying MAMA HALU ONLY R30 000 PER week. I first called Sifiso to find out more information about things that MAMA HALU can do to change the lives of poor people. He explained all to me and then I called MAMA HALU the very same day and asked what I should do for him to change my life financially. MAMA HALU told me about the SHORT BOYS that put any amount of money In bank account, RATS to bring any amount of money In the house, THE MAGIC WALLET that brings R20 000 every day for two years and winning of LOTTO and POWERBALL then you pay when you win, but I was interested in the SHORT BOYS to deposit R2 million In my ABSA account and within 3 hours I received a notification that R2 million has been deposited In my account through the SHORT BOYS of MAMA HALU. I called her with a huge smile on my face to inform her about the transaction but she said I must transfer to her only R500.000 as her payment. I did that from my branch without any question or problems. I never wasted time but to inform and introduce my wife to her because for many years she has been gambling without any success until she called MAMA HALU and got the LUCKY numbers which she used and won LOTTO on the the 2nd week of January and she paid 25% from the money she won as the way MAMA HALU instructed her to do and now I live a successful life that everyone deserve and wishes for with my family.

I have been struggling for a long time because of financial problems that I had. I used to have a small business selling fruits in the street and staying in an RDP house for so many years without any progress of financial change in my life. I have been playing LOTTO and POWERBALL for the past 9 years hoping that one day I will win and change my life but without a single win until I bought a newspaper to read while busy selling my fruits In the street, I was very surprised after reading different Testimonies of people explaining how MAMA HALU changed their lives with different ways for them to get the money they wanted like others whose lives changed when SHORT BOYS deposited money In their account. Rats put money in their houses, the MAGIC WALLET to get R25 000 every day and winning LOTTO and POWERBALL Because I love gambling I called MAMA HALU In the evening when I was back home and I asked her to change my life. I explained to her how I’m struggling and suffering with my life. She promised to give me LUCKY numbers of winning LOTTO and within 4 hours she performed her miracles to get those Lucky numbers. After using THE LUCKY NUMBERS that MAMA HALU gave to me, I PLAYED THE LOTTO and I was very shocked and surprised to see all the Lucky numbers appearing on the draw and It was like a dream coming true and I paid 25% from the money I won to MAMA HALU and kept the rest for myself.

THE ONLY WAY TO LIVE A SUCCESSFUL LIFE I am a widow from Port Shepstone, KZN and my cell number is 076 854 6630. My Husband left me with a big business before he died early 2016. Due to other problems the business started to go down. I then decided to visit different Doctors, Sangomas and Herbalists for financial help but they all failed to help me until I lost everything I had. I didn’t lose hope. I then saw Testimonies of people thanking and informing other people who got serious financial problems about MAMA HALU and how she is changing the life of poor South African’s to be successful people mainly with the SHORT BOYS that deposit any amount of money you want in the bank account like one of her clients whereby the SHORT BOYS deposited R1.5million in her Capitec account within 3hrs and paid MAMA HALU only R400 000. I was interested with The MAGIC WALLET which I ordered and received it the next day and it brings me R20,000 every day, thus making R140,000 every week (7 days) and she told me to pay her R30 000 each and per week for the 2 years that I will be using. If you have Financial Problems, remember the decision to be successful is between you and yourself. Just call MAMA HALU now to help you have a successful life and your family because I witnessed this through her miracles that she did for me as I am financially stable again because I managed to reopen some of my businesses through her powerful MAGIC WALLET.

IT’S TRUE, WITH THE MIRACLES OF MAMA HALU YOU CAN EXPERIENCE YOUR LIFETIME DREAMS I was born in Mafikeng but I live in Umzimkulu now and my contact number is 076 793 6591. For the past 5 years I have been working for the Municipality cleaning and sweeping the streets of Pretoria. It was not easy watching people driving beautiful cars in the streets, but I kept praying that one day God will show me a way to own and drive my car because it was impossible to buy a car with the Job I had. Until one day during lunch break, I had no food and I sat down to read a Sunday World newspaper when I saw many testimonies of people praising and thanking MAMA HALU for ending their financial problems that they had before because now according to their testimonies they very successful and rich people. That is when I believed that to be rich it’s not only to have a degree or diplomas or to wake up in the morning to go to work for you to be rich. After receiving my payment from the municipality of that month I bought enough Airtime to call MAMA HALU and hear more from her. After speaking to her she promised to make me rich using SHORT BOYS to put money In my bank account and it was not easy to believe her words until she requested my banking details and told me to wait for only 3 hours. It was a big miracle to receive a message on my phone that R1.8 million has been deposited In my account I checked and read the message notification 3 to 4 times to be sure because I thought I was dreaming but now I am rich and successful because I bought two Toyota Quantum’s to start my dream business of owning taxis and it’s going very well as I will buy a house in the third week of January through the profit that I’m getting from my taxis. I am now totally financially stable because I only paid R300 000 after I got that R1.8 million in my account. Not too late for you to be rich and successful in life. Your dream is waiting for you to make it true. Just call MAMA HALU now and experience the true miracles of your life time.

FARMERS of macadamia nuts are now being offered extended cover by an insurance company. Safire Insurance has announced that its macadamia cover has been extended to offer wider protection for producers of this increasingly popular crop. Safire Crop’s Gareth Smallbones, a technical support specialist, said: “There are a number of options available for growers to insure their annual nut harvests but, until now, cover for their trees has been difficult to find. Safire can also provide cover for orchard seedlings while in the nursery, ensuring peace of mind to the nurseryman.” South Africa is the world’s main producer of macadamia nuts, with over 30 000 hectares of orchards in Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga growing an estimated 50 000+ tons per annum. About 4 000 hectares of new trees are added each year. While it is one of the country’s most profitable crops, macadamia farming is not a quick and easy way to make a profit. Establishment costs are relatively high, and in-

come is only realised once the trees are four years and older when the first crop is ready for harvesting. Pests and disease are an issue but can be controlled with careful farming and regular routine maintenance. “The industry is definitely becoming more technical and macadamia are not a plant and leave crop. There are risks: fire, wind and hail can damage the trees, for example, which is why insurance cover is so important,” said Smallbones. “In the past, insurers have been reluctant to cover drying bins or stock therein relating to any agricultural process. After studying the actual risk on the sheds and drying and storage bins, Safire made the decision to insure the stock of nuts whilst being dried and stored on the farm premises so that we can offer insurance with no gaps (seedling to market). “While cover for seedlings and trees is offered through the Safire Crop Division, the insurance of stock, equipment and buildings would be through Safire Insurance as part of its short-term offering,” he said.

Giving the gift of warmth SIPHELELE NKETO >>


LDERLY residents from Ibisi, outside uMzimkhulu, received warm blankets from the Rural Empowerment Agrarian Pillars (Reap) foundation last Friday. The handover, which took place at the Ibisi Community Hall, was attended by Reap foundation representatives and sponsors. The foundation, based in uMzimkhulu, was established in 2015 by a group of retired teachers, nurses, and police officers to help orphans and vulnerable children in rural areas. The foundation also empowers residents in agriculture to help end poverty. The foundation’s chairperson, David Set-

huntsa, said that they bought 10 blankets to help keep the elderly residents warm as a way of showing their appreciation. “We donated blankets so elderly residents can celebrate Christmas with a smile. It is their choice to keep the blankets for the next year’s winter season. For us, we just wanted to make them smile,” said Sethuntsa. In past years, Sethuntsa said the foundation collected money and bought school uniforms for children. This year, members of the foundation have been advocating for peace between children and parents. “Children who are involved in substance abuse and drugs get rejected from their homes, so our aim is to make peace in homes and to give children love,” ended Sethuntsa.

‘Smash-and-grabs’ — how you can avoid it happening to you


The KwaNzimakwe Multi-Trail Park on the KZN South Coast is a treat for nature lovers, 4x4, off road, and hiking fans.

Ugu to launch multi-trail park THE long-awaited KwaNzimakwe Multi-Trail Park will be launched on Sunday, November 3, giving nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts the chance to experience this unique Ugu South Coast Tourism (USCT) route development project. Commenting on the initiative, CEO of USCT Phelisa Mangcu said: “Through the KwaNzimakwe Multi-Trail Park we are looking to create exposure of the area as a tourist attraction and increase visitor numbers, particularly those looking for outdoor adventure. Our role as USCT is to expand the geographical footprint of tourism, opening up the entire South Coast to the benefits of the resultant economic in-stream. We believe that the KwaNzimakwe MultiTrail Park will work to achieve this, offering tourists a unique experience while also creating jobs for the local community.” The event will be hosted by the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM) mayor, Cynthia Mqwebu. Visitors attending the launch are encouraged to bring their 4x4 vehicles and experience the 4x4 obstacle and demo course, organised by local motor dealers Halfway Toyota. This includes the option of traversing the specially-designed four-hour trail with a stopover for a braai and refreshments. Also on the programme is the 10-km trail run hosted by the South Coast Striders, as well as the fun four-kilometre family trail hike (dogs welcome!) which is being hosted by the South Coast Hospice. There will be a special 22-km off-road motorcycle trail in support of Stuart Gregory’s “Nuts4Dakar” campaign. Food and other refreshments will be provided by the local community. USCT established the KwaNzimakwe MultiTrail Park to encourage tourism in the hinterland areas, with local communities given a platform to sell products and refreshments. Inkosi B.S. Nzimakwe, under whose jurisdiction the park land falls, said: “I would like to place on record how happy the community was to work towards a multi-trail centre in KwaNzimakwe. After we were involved in the Margate Enduro, we experienced how we can work

hand-in-hand with tourism and event organisers to host events in our area. We warmly welcome this opportunity and as a community would gladly participate in the upcoming events in the multi-trail park on a regular basis.” The KwaNzimakwe Multi Trail Park will be developed in stages, with plans in place for a clubhouse, restaurant, tourism information centre, traders’ market and administrative offices. For outdoor enthusiasts, there will be a 4x4 trail; walking, running and nature trails; Enduro, motorbike, motocross and mountain bike, closed circuit tracks as well as cultural activities. Directions to site: the KwaNzimakwe MultiTrail Park is about 18 km from the Southbroom traffic lights. It’s easily accessible for visitors via the main road, with only 200 metres of dirt road leading to the proposed parking area. — Supplied.

OPPORTUNISTIC criminals rely on the element of surprise to strike at unsuspecting motorists. The best way to prevent a “smash-and-grab” from happening to you, is to be alert. “Smash-and-grabs sadly happen across most cities and end up turning what should be a pleasant drive into a nightmare. Just recently, in Cape Town, a video was shared of a motorist being robbed when he was stuck in slow-moving traffic. According to Charnel Hattingh, national marketing and communications manager at Fidelity ADT, would-be robbers are normally on the lookout for distracted drivers with clearly visible valuable items that are easy to access. “They are looking for something that they can easily and quickly grab before running off while the driver is too shocked and surprised to respond. “Laptops and handbags on front seats are popular items that have been stolen in smashand-grabs,” she warned. What can you do to protect yourself? “The two most important things to do, is to always pay attention to your surroundings and to never leave valuable items in clear sight to any passing pedestrian. “Criminals don’t need a lot of time to strike — if you look at the video of the recent incident in Cape Town, for example, you will see how incredibly quickly the whole incident can happen,” says Hattingh. TIPS FOR MOTORISTS TO DISCOURAGE SMASH-AND-GRAB ATTEMPTS: · Leave valuable items in the boot or store them safely under your seats. · If you find yourself in an area where traffic is moving very slowly (for example, because

of congestion or due to a defective traffic light) make sure you keep your eyes open for any pedestrian movement around your vehicle. · Avoid distractions. Your focus should be on the safe operation of your vehicle and nothing else. The phone call and the cigarette can wait. · Lock your doors and keep the windows closed. · Avoid sitting in your car for a prolonged period of time (along the side of the road or perhaps in a parking garage) where you potentially become an easy target while concentrating on a phone call or something else that distracts your attention from your surroundings. · Leave a gap between you and the car in front of you to give you room to escape (i.e. drive away from any incident), if anything should happen. · Consider installing special window safety film. It is usually tinted so that no one can see into the car, while also preventing the windows from shattering. “The key point to remember in all of this is the need for vigilance. You can already make a massive difference in avoiding a smash-andgrab by simply paying attention to what is happening around you. “If you see anything suspicious, make sure you report it to the closest police station or to law enforcement as soon as possible, so that fellow motorists can also be protected,” said Hattingh. — Supplied.

Runners gear up take on the iconic Sani Stagger marathon THE much-anticipated Sani Stagger marathon will provide runners with a unique opportunity to take on the iconic Sani Pass on November 23. With its one-of-a-kind appeal, runners from all over the country make the trip to Sani Pass to take on the 42 km run that takes runners from the Premier Resort Sani Pass to the summit and then back to the Sani Pass Hotel. The 21km event starts at the summit. The half marathon has grown a reputation as the race to do, which explains why it sells out in such a short space of time. Being able to tackle the Sani Pass descent once a year is an exciting prospect for many runners. From a marathon perspective, its popularity has grown exponentially in the past few years and it is seen as one of the best pre-Comrades qualifiers due to its toughness, altitude and its proximity to the world’s largest ultra-marathon. The race has traditionally attracted a strong field of elite athletes for the full marathon with three-time Comrades Marathon winner Bongmusa Mthembu winning the race in 2018 and finishing second in 2017. Last year, Lisa Collett scorched the women’s race to take her maiden title at the Stagger. She won the race by 25 minutes and it will be interesting to see if she returns to defend her crown this

year. Over the years the Stagger organisers have been responsible for some of the great trail running events in the Southern Drakensberg and they decided to add the Stagger Trail to the list of running options on the day. The trail run offers two different distances, a 38 km run and 21 km run, for those that prefer the challenge of the mountain trails as opposed to the gravel road up and down Sani Pass. There are still entries available for the trail runs as the event tries to continually evolve and offer an appeal to a wider array of visitors to the area. The event will include a Southern Loadstar 6 km Fun Run and Walk for those that are more inclined to a slower pace, based from the race headquarters at the Premier Resort Sani Pass, and is intended to be accessible and manageable route aimed at recreational walkers and hikers. All of the proceeds raised through entries will go to assisting the crèches in the area. Along with the fun run and walk, event organisers have also included the inaugural Stagger Market on the lawns of the Sani Pass Hotel where runners and locals can browse for arts and crafts, food and drink and share in the local hospitality and enjoy the Berg weather together in a family environment with live music. The 2019 Sani Stagger Marathon is anticipated to be a sold out event as runners from all over the country come to take on the iconic Sani Pass. PHOTO: SUPPLIED
