Councillor resigns, cites heath issues SIPHELELE NKETO >> WARD 10 Councillor Velane Mkhize from the Ubuhlebezwe Municipality in Ixopo announced his resignation recently. On July 4, Mkhize confirmed his resignation, citing health problems as one of the reasons for his decision. He added that he will not be resigning from his position of African National Congress (ANC) Ward 10 branch secretary. “My doctor instructed me to resign to focus on my health. I was not forced to resign,”he said. Mkhize has been a councillor since August 2016. He said a number of service delivery projects, such as electricity and roads, were done during his term, while water projects were underway. The Ubuhlebezwe Municipality Mayor, Zamo Nxumalo, together with other councillors, visited Ward 10 residents last week to announce the resignation of Councillor Mkhize. “The municipality and Mkhize are parting ways on good terms and the resignation is due to personal reasons,” Nxumalo told residents while his deputy, Elizabeth Ngubo, thanked the community for making sure that Mkhize was held accountable. Councillor Zimbili Khumalo was appointed as interim councillor until by-elections are held. Ubuhlebezwe Municipal spokesperson Mlungisi Dladla said the council has officially declared a vacant post.

Happy ending for start up following ‘eviction’ SIPHELELE NKETO >>


OUNDERS of the start up company 90 Something Development (PTY) LTD were excited to move to a new office space at 32 Barker Street in Kokstad. Following the company being removed from the Squash Court Building at 49 Barclay Street at the end of June, the company met with the Greater Kokstad Municipality last week and an agreement regarding their use of the property was made. On June 28, the Fever published an article about the three 90 Something Development

owners; Khaya Mkatu, Abonga Ndema and Ntuthuzelo Mdledle; who were stopped from using the Squash Court Building by municipal security guards who said they were occupying the building illegally. In the article, one of the founders, Mkatu, said they had been renting the building from the Squash Club and they had conducted renovations using their own money. The company was asked to vacate the premises on the day of their opening event, on June 24. “Last week we held a meeting with Greater Kokstad Municipality Mayor Bheki Mtolo after the publication of the Fever article and we were granted permission to use the offices,” said

Mkatu, adding that they will use the Squash Court Building to accommodate Small Medium and Micro Enterprise Businesses (SMMEs). He further said that after the article was made public, the owner of a building at 32 Barker Street also accommodated them with new office space to render services like property development, land surveying, quantity surveying, concept development, and market research. During a visit to their new offices at 32 Barker Street on Monday, people could be seen painting. The three owners were thrilled to be accommodated at the new premises. Mdledle thanked the Kokstad mayor for his intervention.

Challenges identified at municipal projects visit

SIPHELELE NKETO >> A LARGE pothole on a busy section of road between Hope and Zietsman Street in Kokstad is a hazard to motorists and the Kokstad Rate Payers Association has called on the municipality to fix it, along with all the other uneven roads in Kokstad. Motorists coming from the direction of the Mount Currie Inn are forced to form one lane to avoid the pothole. “We feel that the municipality needs to do a walk through the town to identify and fix all areas where the roads are brutally uneven or half-tarred, where there are unpainted speed humps and potholes as well,” said Kokstad Rate Payers Association spokesperson Ziphelele Toyi. In response, Greater Kokstad Municipality (GKM) spokesperson Nthabeleng Matshoba said the municipality is aware of the pothole and municipal Roads and Storm Water Section employees are aware of it as well. “The pothole is on the R56 road, meaning it falls within a regional road under the jurisdiction of the Department of Transport. “There is apparently some water leakage on the road and GKM have approached the Harry Gwala District Municipality to fix the water leak first. “We have called on the Department of Transport to repair the damaged road. “Be that as it may, GKM has taken it upon ourselves to repair the section of the damaged road, although this is not part of our road network and it will be like all reactive maintenance, meaning we cannot fix a date as to when it will be done, but it will be fixed before the end of July,” said the spokesperson.


Motorists have spoken out about a dangerous pothole in Kokstad.

UMZIMKHULU Municipality Mayor Mphuthumi Mpabanga and municipal manager Zweliphantsi Sikhosana visited selected infrastructure projects on Friday, July 5, as part of efforts to monitor and evaluate challenges that have been highlighted. The projects include the Umzimkhulu Small Medium and Micro Enterprise (SMME) facilities between Cash Build and Spar, and municipal traffic offices. Municipal representatives also inspected the construction of internal roads in Ibisi. Also at the visit were ward committees, infrastructure and engineering committee members as well as Local Economic Development and Tourism representatives who engaged with service providers on the progress of the projects. “These projects are above 80% completion, therefore, through these visits, municipal officials will be able to address challenges encountered. The leadership also picked up some matters that need urgent attention,” said the mayor, who added that the building of an SMME facility next to the wetland area resulted in unforeseen challenges and that municipal leadership and management will address all challenges encountered at the visit.

Teaching boys how to be men SIPHELELE NKETO

getting into fights. I decided not to be silent while young men are destroying their futures in the name of an age-old tradition which is not useful to their future,” said Letuka. “I teach young boys to respect women and young girls, to stop bullying at schools, and to stop being involved in criminal activities.” Letuka also contributes in the process of rehabilitating parolees and probationers to benefit the department. DCS Kokstad Management Area Communications Officer Bonginkosi Mbotshwa applauded the officer for taking this initiative, saying the future generations need to be developed so we can have a better country. “The officer has taken our department to greater heights, and he has won numerous awards on the national level due to the enormous job he is doing” said Mbotshwa. Letuka thanked his colleagues for their support, saying he goes the extra mile in his job because he is driven by his love for the youth.



EPARTMENT of Correctional Services (DCS) employee Bulelani Letuka has embarked on a campaign to teach young boys to be responsible citizens. Letuka, a DCS Matatiele community corrections officer, recently engaged with young boys from the Magadla village outside Matatiele, teaching them about the dangers of crime and speaking to them about the abuse of women and young girls. He said young boys in the rural villages steal chickens and pigs and abuse women as a way of celebrating their tradition. He said that young boys who prepare to go to initiation schools steal in the name of their traditional practice, which has unfairly tarnished the image of the practice. “Many young men have criminal records due to stealing, being unruly in societies, and

Criminals targeting schools – what schools, parents and kids must know SCHOOL violence is prevalent and widespread, and schools are being targeted by criminals for electronic devices (computers and IT equipment). According to Jason Mordechai, MD at 7Arrows Security: “Over the past few months, there has been an increase in school break-ins. It’s frightening to note that [criminals] seem to have worked out how to overcome the physical barriers to entry and are gaining access to school properties relatively easily — the roof is often used as

an entry point. Many schools house their security systems in the roof — which gives criminals the added advantage of cutting the system before they have been detected.” “As parents, it is our responsibility to protect our children. While crime is not something we can control, unfortunately, we can ensure that we know as much as possible about the school environment,” says Maanda Tshifularo, Head of Dialdirect Insurance. Ways to protect your child while at school:

- Know what security methods, procedures and systems are in place at the school. - Ensure that both you and your child know what to do in the case of an emergency. - Choose a school that has a transparent flow of communication between staff and parents. - Become familiar with the system used at the school in the event of violence or crime. Where is the school’s emergency meeting point? - What is the procedure for collecting children after school?

‘An empowered youth is crucial to drive the economy’ THE Matatiele Local Municipality recently hosted a youth gathering for all young people to share prospective ideas that could help develop Matatiele. Held on June 27 at the Matatiele City Hall, the event was attended by youth from all sectors.

“The municipality believes that education and skills development are essential for the youth to drive the economy since they form the majority of the population in Matatiele,” said municipality speaker Nomasomi Mshuqwana. Those in attendance debated substance abuse, economic development and job oppor-

tunities. One of the young people present was Ndima Mtoto from Ward 20 in Matatiele. He thanked the municipality for hosting the event, and said he wants the lives of young people to change for the better. — Supplied.


Councillor Fundiswa Kondile at the event.

- Ensure your child has memorised the following emergency numbers: • Nationwide Emergency Response: 10111 • Mobile phone emergency hotline: 112 • Ambulance/Fire Brigade: 10177 “Understanding what protective measures have been put in place by the school to prevent crime and teaching your children how to access help in the case of an emergency is one step closer to protecting them during the school day,” says Tshifularo. — Supplied.

Correction IN the June 21 issue of the East Griqualand Fever, Karen­ Norsworthy was incorrectly quoted saying criminals must be given R1 000 bail. The correct statement was that criminals should be given R10 000 bail or refused bail by the courts. We apologise for any inconvenience.

T TOOK four weeks for Matatieleborn fashion designer Martin John Steenkamp to design his Africanstyled garments for the recent Vodacom Durban July (VDJ) 2019. Steenkamp showcased his designs at the prestigious event, held this past weekend, on Saturday, July 6, and was very excited to have the opportunity to show off his talent. “When I got the invite to display my garments at the VDJ I was very happy. I researched African colours and stories to make my designs more attractive, with the assistance of my little sister. I decided to make something which would represent African humanities,” he said. Steenkamp added that he made a garment with stars that represent an eye because he believes there is a future for the African continent. This is not the first time Steenkamp has been invited to showcase his designs at the VDJ, having made his debut there last year. “I think organisers of the event saw a talent in me and they decided to invite me for the second time this year,”he said. Steenkamp grew up on a farm 15 km outside Matatiele. His fashion design calling came after he completed his matric in 2007. He worked at a supermarket and saved money so he could follow his dream of being a fashion designer. After saving for seven years, he registered for a course in fashion design at the School of Fashion Design in Pieter­maritzburg and graduated in 2016. “I am proud to have been born in Matatiele. I want young people to do whatever makes them happy instead of relying only on friends to make them happy. “I am humble because I grew up in Matatiele,” he said. On July 31, Steenkamp will be travelling to Ghana to promote his designs.

UMZ VIEWPOINT ZWELIPHANSI SKHOSANA MUNICIPAL MANAGER GREETINGS to all. KHUTHELE SOCCER TOURNAMENT Sports development is always a thorny issue in our communities, and as a municipali-

ty we have since taken a sober stance to support anything that seeks to elevate development and empowerment. It is on that note that we created an enabling environment for the Manqoba Mngqithi Foundation with social partner, Khuthele Logistics, when they gave birth to an annual and prestigious event known as the Khuthele Soccer Tournament. They have also brought the Harry Gwala District SAFA on as key stakeholders. This event cannot be taken lightly, and about 28 soccer teams have participated. There are currently eight soccer teams left,

as others have been eliminated. The final and main event will be held at the Umzimkhulu Sportsfield on July 20. Even though these teams have been eliminated, the talents displayed by the participants was quite amazing, therefore we pride ourselves in this gigantic event. We would like to applaud these conscious organisers for ploughing back to these communities and for not giving up, even when the environment at times was not that favourable. It is on that note that we would like to call upon all stakeholders, especially the

private sector, to be part of this prestigious occasion for the benefit of our communities. WARD COMMITTEE MEETINGS In line with the Public Participation and Communication principles, ward councillors are required to convene at one community meeting per month. These community meetings are for the councillors to properly and evidently disseminate information to the respective communities. These leaders are also expected to make use of these meetings as a platform to create an enabling environment for the communities to express their views. Ward committees are responsible for the administrative element of these seatings,

as the some of the ward committees had been elected to represent various sectors, they also account to the communities during these seatings. Distance travelled by each sector is also tabled and interrogated during these meetings, as part of consolidating a quality report. Reports are, without fail, expected to be submitted to the municipal Public Participation Office at all costs. It is on that note that this office has to visit these seatings where possible in order to add value. As we put the 2018/2019 financial year to rest, the Public Participation Office has indeed been up and down in the villages, consolidating a conclusive report. Until we meet again.


GKM VIEWPOINT WARM greetings to the Kokstad community and the community at large. THE FIGHT AGAINST SUBSTANCE AND DRUG ABUSE The Department of Safety and Liaison, working with various stakeholders, government departments and the Greater Kokstad Municipality, joined the fight against substance and drug abuse which seems to be escalating at a very high pace in Kokstad. From July 9 until July 11, various activities were conducted which were aimed at educating community members on the effect of substance and drug abuse, with a focus on young people in school and out of school. On July 9 and July 10, the awareness campaign focused on youth in school, and school visits were conducted. On July 11, the focus was on youth out of school, and there was a dialogue on substance and drug abuse at an event held in the Town Hall where presentations were made by different stakeholders with the aim of empowering young people with information that will assist them in making better future decisions. Young people from all wards of Kokstad were in attendance at this event, and the programme was a success. ELONWABENI OLD AGE HOME BOARD MEMBERS­ ELECTIONS The Department of Social Development, working with the administrator of the Elonwabeni Old Age Home and the Greater Kokstad Municipality, are working tirelessly trying to assist the process of the election of board members for the old age home. The meetings have been postponed twice due to poor attendance by community members and, as a result, the decision to advertise the notice and call for submission of CVs was taken. It was agreed that the Department of Social Development will advertise the notice in local newspapers so that community members who are interested in serving as board members can submit their CVs. The advert will be out on Friday, July 12. CVs must be submitted at 49 St Johns Street near Kokstad Clinic. Submissions close on July 19. PREPARATIONS FOR OPERATION SUKUMA SAKHE­ (OSS) CABINET DAY The preparations for the OSS cabinet day are underway in Kokstad, as the municipality will be hosting the OSS cabinet on July 31. The Premier and MECs will be leading various community meetings and visiting various projects in all wards of the Greater Kokstad Municipality. This is done to promote service delivery and bring government closer to the people through strengthening Operation Sukuma Sakhe. Community members are invited to attend meetings in their various wards. The venues, times and dates will be communicated by ward committees and ward councillors when the schedules are available. Until next time.

DR DCT NAKIN MUNICIPAL MANAGER WARM greetings during this Mandela­ Month. It is our responsibility to ensure that our community is well informed of recent accomplishments in their respective areas. Fire season is upon us! Every winter in South Africa, fire accidents caused by cooking and space heating appliances destroy property worth thousands, cause severe injuries

and even take the lives of our loved ones. It is usually the most vulnerable members of communities; such as children, the elderly and people with disabilities; that become victims. Most of these accidents occur as a result of a noble cause, as people try to keep warm. We would like to encourage all our people to take the initiative and eliminate fire accidents by, among other things, educating each other about fire safety measures. If we are all informed, lives and money will be saved. How to handle a house fire? • Every six months, practice a plan that teaches your family what to do in an emergency. • Keep your bedroom doors closed at night. Doors can hold back smoke and fire. This will allow you more time to escape. • If there is smoke in the room, lie low. Make your way to the door by crawl-

12 July 2019


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


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

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

INTER is synonymous with time spent inside, in front of a fireplace or a heater. For those who aren’t hibernating and are still maintaining their fitness regime, there is an added concern of safety when exercising outdoors. The colder weather means more people prefer to stay indoors, leaving popular exercise spots emptier than usual.

Hattingh recommends the following tips to consider before heading out for your next training session: · Try to train in pairs or join a club for your respective sport, whether you’re into running, cycling or “park runs”. · Alternatively, if you’re unable to join a group or find an exercise partner, include your dog (should the weather allow). · Wear bright clothing, especially during winter when the sky tends to look bleak. · Keep your devices out of sight. While it is crucial to have a fully charged phone, in case of an emergency, your exercise gear should incorporate discrete pockets to store any essential items.

· It is important to stay alert and it would be best not to exercise with any noise cancelling devices like headphones. You should be able to hear warning sounds like a car’s hooter or someone suddenly approaching from behind. · Plan ahead and avoid dark alleys and back roads. Remember to vary your course and map out multiple options, to circumvent criminals from tracking your usual practice route. “Let a loved one know where and when you’ll be exercising. This allows them to check up on you should you be gone for too long. It is also essential to carry identification and ensure your emergency contact’s information is easily accessible,” suggests Hattingh. “It’s also a good idea to look into using mobile tracking options during training sessions. Equipping yourself and being aware of all your safety options is empowering for fitness experts and novices alike,” recommends Hattingh. Whether you are training for a marathon, triathlon or simply maintaining your health, you shouldn’t have to abandon your training during winter because of safety concerns, explains Hattingh. “Many individuals prefer training outdoors over the gym. Careful planning and preparation will help ensure that nothing prevents you from achieving your fitness goals, not even the season.” — Supplied.

“Aside from fewer people outside, it gets dark much earlier, which calls for more vigilance and suitable preparation,” says Charnel Hattingh, Fidelity ADT’s National Marketing and Communications Manager. “Working individuals have to make the most out of their limited time before and after work, but there are precautions fitness enthusiasts should consider to maximise their safety,” she adds. Hattingh recommends that if you’re arriving home when it’s dark, there are options to time your lights (through home automation) that guarantee your property will be well-lit on your arrival. “Remember to be cautious as criminals tend to study their potential target’s routines before striking.”

HE Duzi2Sani 4x4 Expedition will go ahead from September 13 to September 15 in Underberg, and arrangements for the annual event are officially underway. The event, which involves local government, Sani Tourism, Land Rover and other partners, will start in Pietermaritzburg and conclude in Lesotho. It is meant to boost tourism, and expose hidden talents in fashion design. Andile Zwezwe, the tourism senior officer at the Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma Municipality said the three-day event will include a paragliding festival, food

tasting and a fashion show on the second day. “Designers will showcase their makings, and there is rural horse-riding which will take place outside Bulwer,” said Zwezwe, adding that visitors will be accommodated well. In the past years, the event had a massive collection of activities and attractions which showed rich diversity and cultures. “We invite our residents to attend the event, as they will get more information about tourism. Tourism and agriculture are our main form of support in the local economy to fight poverty and unemployment,” said the Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma Municipality spokesperson Sikhumbuzo Sethuntsa.

Get your funky pants on THE Sappi Scottburgh Mtb & Trail Run Weekend is set to take place on Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21. This is race two of the South Coast Fever MTB 2019 series. The weekend starts off with the trail run on Saturday. With two new routes planned for the Funky Pants 12km and Funky Pants 22km, these routes promise beautiful single track and scenery. The 5km trail run/walk is the perfect distance for young kids and pensioners. We are hoping to attract those Saturday 5km junkies to come and challenge themselves on the 12km. Sunday is dedicated to the MTB and the Sappi Scottburgh Classic, which is going to be hotly

contested. Once again the route is going to give every rider a chance to test themselves and their equipment. The Wardkiss 28km is going to be just as challenging for the young ones. The Wardkiss 10km family ride is going to be fun if you are under 13 and ride on your own. The Halfway Toyota Kidz Zone will be running on both days, so the little ones will be safe while mum and dad run or ride. The winter weather on the South Coast is the best you can get. Come and spend the day on the beach. With a bit of luck, the sardines and dolphins will give us a show once again. See you all in Scottburgh. — Supplied.

established the South Coast Filmmakers Association, recently handed over certificates to beneficiaries of its first executive workshop. Beneficiaries received their certificates last Wednesday, July 3 at Mojo’s in Southcoast Mall. Handing over the certificates was Zindela, Ray Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM) Deputy Mayor Ronnie Nair and Ugu South Coast Tourism (USCT) CEO Phelisa Mangcu. Nair said RNM was blessed to have individuals like Zindela, who are keen on developing the municipality and its people. “We are very proud of Senzo and we want to wish him well for all that he is yet to do for people on the South Coast,” said Nair. Mangcu reminded Zindela of the dangers of producing films on crime and environmental

negatives of this area, emphasising that those type of films would decrease tourism on the South Coast. Zindela said the ceremony was aimed at awarding and motivating aspiring local filmmakers. He also highlighted that upcoming filmmakers need to have flexible strategies as well as educate themselves about the business side of film-making. Upcoming film-maker Thobelani Shezi said: “What I learnt the most about the film industry is how to register your work. I have also learnt that if you want your film to be more successful, you have work closely with the lead producers who have already made their mark in the film industry.” He said he also learnt how to convince investors to invest money in his work. “I have improved on my communication and writing skills,” said Shezi.

Committed to growing the economy of the South Coast THE South Coast Chamber of Commerce (SCCCI) and Ugu South Coast Tourism (USCT) signed a memorandum of agreement on Friday, July 6 at the San Lameer Hotel. According to SCCCI president Vjay Naidoo, USCT and SCCCI see the value of working together to grow tourism and contribute towards developing the economy of the South Coast. “The signing ceremony was well attended by members of both organisations, signalling the support of the initiative which aims to create more opportunities in the value and supply chains of the tourism sector for local businesses. “The memorandum of agreement further provides for capacity building and mentorship for existing and potential new entrants to the sector,” he said.

Umzimkhulu runner wins half marathon FEVER REPORTER >>


Young Stars FC players celebrate their victory.

NPO supports rural sport Y

OUNG people from the rural villages of Harding were recently invited to a sports tournament hosted by the non-profit organisation Youth Against Suffering (YAS). Certificates and trophies were given to sports teams and runners at an event held at the Madlangathi Sports Grounds on June 29. “The main objective of the event was to keep the youth away from unhealthy behaviour during school holidays and to build social cohesion, as we know that sport creates good relations among the youth and destroys hatred,” said Bulelani Khumalo, the NPO’s director general.

Participants competed in soccer and chess and there was also a 2,4km run. Young Stars FC was victorious at the soccer finals, beating City Express FC 5-4 on penalties. For their hard work, the champions received a soccer kit, trophy, and gold medals while City Express FC received medals and two soccer balls. The Chess winners were Mandisa Madiya and Senzo Mbuthuma while Yamkela Shibe and Bandile Mbulu were victorious at the run. According to NPO treasurer Thembelani Mkhize, the NPO was established in 2012 to encourage the youth to take up sport.

Mbhele was placed fifth in the Spar Women’s 10km Challenge the weekend before, on June 23. The Qaphe’ Eqolo Save the Rhino event is held annually to encourage fitness and to raise awareness about the endangered rhino. In the male category, Tebello Ramakongoana finished first at 1:03.
