Pupils learn outside

SIPHELELE NKETO >>siphelele@media24.com

P

UPILS from G.I. Primary School in Cedarville were seen basking in the sun during school hours as they attended their classes out on the street on Wednesday. The move, which shocked community members was initiated by teachers from the school,who after a long wait for the department to renovate the school, resolved to stop teaching pupils in dilapidated classrooms. The school, which has 630 pupils from Grade R to 7 has been a concern for the community for years.

The 630 pupils all share three toilet facilities while the 18 staff members shared two. Also, pupils from Grade R, Grade 1B, Grade 3A and Grade 3B were taught in prefab classrooms bought by the school many years ago, while Grade 4 and 5 pupils were taught in a house donated by the Griqua Church. A teacher from the school who asked to remain anonymous said that Government sponsored permanent structures at the school were used as staff administrative offices as well as for some of the other classrooms. “The prefab classrooms have broken walls, floors and windows and it is hard for pupils and

teachers to operate under such circumstances. There was once a pupil who was forced to use crutches after falling into the caved floors of one of those classrooms. On cold and rainy days things get even worse for the school,” said the teacher. The school governing body chairperson, Sibusiso Dlamini confirmed that pupils were taught outside on Wednesday and they have been asking Government to build a new school. Dlamini said that the school also had one tap for all the pupils and staff water needs and even so, it sometimes did not have running water. “When we don’t have water, pupils are released early to go home. There is only one cleaner in the

school and when she is not working, pupils clean the school which is not right,” said Dlamini. Dlamini blamed Government for failing to fill four vacant positions for teachers which have remained unfilled for years. The school principal refused to give comment saying that he was not aware of what happened on Wednesday because he was on leave and the HOD declined to comment stating that it was not in his jurisdiction to address media enquiries. The Department of Education Alfred Nzo district director, Lungelo Mthatyana had not responded to several calls and text message sent to him for comment at the time of going to print.

Business burglaries on the rise P

OLICE are worried about increasing incidents of business burglaries in Kokstad. According to police, two 55 inch televisions to the total value of R16 000 and a 32 inch TV that costs R4 000 were stolen from a Kokstad shop last Friday. SAPS spokesperson Captain Du-

misani Ncongo said that shop owners left the shop in order on Thursday, and when they returned the following day, they found broken doors. On Saturday morning, an alarm went off in one of the shops in town and when the shop owners searched, they had found that a bar

fridge, microwave and heater were stolen from inside the shop. The total value for the stolen items was R6 000. “At Kokstad Primary School, criminals stole boxes of pens and stationary from the school and a man was arrested. It is suspected that the man jumped the fence be-

fore entering the school,” said Ncongo. Ncongo said that a wheelbarrow and braai stand was stolen from a house in Kokstad town. Ncongo said that police are doing their best to arrest criminals and appealed to people to strengthen security at their business premises. — Supplied.

Missing man is sought A CASE of a missing person was reported to the Maluti police station when Solomon Tobia (49) did not returned home after he attended a traditional feast at

Zwelitsha village near Khoapa in Matatiele on May 8. Members of the Maluti South African Police Services (SAPS), the Mounted Unit and Dog Unit

have been searching his whereabouts from the day he was reported missing. SAPS spokesperson Captain Raphael Motloung asked people

to contact the police if they have any information regarding Tobia’s whereabouts. — Supplied.

Be educated on HUMAN TRAFFICKING FEVER REPORTER

LAST year former minister of police Fikile Mbalula had warned young people not to trust the internet when potential employers propose job opportunities over social media. During this time there had been scams going around social media offering young women job positions. Human trafficking can be described as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of threat or use of force or other forms of coercion according to the United Nations (UN). When abducted there are many facets that you can be utilised in to make an income for the abductor including prostitution, being a drug mule, exploitation, slavery and forced labour or the removal of organs. The UN highlights that every country is affected by human trafficking whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims. Often, poor countries where the unemployment rate is high become an easy prey for abductors. In the plight of the human trafficking epidemic the SAPS urge the community to be on the lookout and stay aware that human trafficking is a real crime and can happen to anyone. SAPS communications officer Captain Linzi Smith said: “Community, students, scholars, parents etc. should be aware of the dangers of trusting strangers who offer them lifts, offer them fast paying jobs or free scholarships. People need to guard themselves and

know that if it seems too good to be true, it’s because most often they are people who are involved in human trafficking, lure young girls and boys with money and then send them off to other countries where they become slaves of cheap labour or get involved in forced prostitution and drugs. “Youngsters need to be careful of befriending strangers on social media. With modern technology today, the criminal can hide behind any false identity and can meet you in the safety of your bedroom, behind a screen on the computer on Facebook or Skype. “Sometimes these underground human trafficking syndicates most often hide behind false identity profiles with fake photographs. “Never meet a stranger from the internet alone, as most often it is dangerous and can put oneself in a very vulnerable situation and can result in one being kidnapped for human trafficking purposes. “Young girls need to seek advice and do proper research before accepting any offers that seem too good to be true, so as to make sure that the offers are legit. “The community is encouraged to work hand in hand with the police in combatting the increase in this crime. “Pupils should not fall into the trap of peer pressure and being bullied into doing unlawful criminal activities. Contact the Crime Stop Tip Off by calling 086 001 0111. “Any suspicious activity or person you suspect that could possibly be involved in human trafficking should be reported and can be investigated.” Open Door Crisis

Centre founder Thora Mansfield said that human trafficking can be referred to as modern day slavery. Mansfield said that human trafficking is unlawful and not only violates basic human rights but also contravenes the law. “It can be defined as — the acquisition of people by improper means such as force, fraud or deception, with the aim of exploiting them. Human trafficking knows no boundaries, it is both an international and domestic problem and it affects, in varying degrees, both males and females. “People who are often targeted by criminals are desperate and poor people who aspire for a better life. Human trafficking can be committed by a sole individual, partners or by different actors in an organised fashion.” Mansfield said that human trafficking is ranked second in the criminal industry after drug trafficking and arms trafficking. “It is regarded as a profit making and lucrative business for criminal syndicates. It knows no borders and operates internationally and locally. “Due to its clandestine and complex nature, it is difficult to detect. “Therefore, reliable statistics on the magnitude of the problem are difficult to ascertain. “One of the organisation’s immediate goals is to expand the awareness campaigns to schools and tertiary institutions, communities and religious sectors as a preventative measure to potential victims of human trafficking.” “For further information on human trafficking, or wishing to support human trafficking programmes e-mail thora@opendoor.org.za

Hooked for life THE Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) partners with the World Health Organisation to highlight risks associated with tobacco use as part of World No Tobacco on May 31. The aim is to advocate for effective policies to lower tobacco use. Elize Joubert, CANSA’s CEO said: “Globally the focus is on the link between tobacco and heart, also other cardiovascular diseases including stroke, which combined are the world’s leading causes of death. “In South Africa, we’re concerned about the burden of tobacco and especially about the tactics adopted by the tobacco industry to target youth. Research shows tobacco use is often initiated and established during adolescence and young adulthood.” Smoking remains a major preventable cause of disease and premature death globally. Annually, the global tobacco epidemic kills over 7 million people. South Africa’s comprehensive Tobacco Control strategy over the last 20 years has been effective in dropping smoking use per capita — according to the SA National Health and Nutrition Survey 2013. It showed 32.8% of men had ever smoked compared to 10.1 % of females. The initial success of legislation of the past 20 years such as the Tobacco Products Control Amendment Act No.12 (1999), hikes in excise duty on cigarettes,and health promotions to educate on risks of tobacco use have led to a 30% decrease in smoking among school children. However, a recent increase in smoking has been noted among youth (particularly girls) in SA from 2008 to 2011, according to the Global Youth Tobacco Surveys. Tobacco companies are engaged in systematic market research generating data on population trends, smoking patterns and attitudes towards smoking. Research revealed that 90% of smokers start the habit by age 18 and 99% start by age 26. By altering the taste, smell and other sensory attributes of products, tobacco manufacturers entice new users, mostly youth, to start and continue smoking. They maximise the appeal of tobacco products in this age group, by means of introducing the following chemical additives: • Levulinic acid to reduce harshness of nicotine; make smoke feel smoother and less irritating.

• Flavourings, such as chocolate and liquorice, to boost sweetness of tobacco; mask harshness of the smoke. • Bronchodilators to expand lungs’ airways, making it easier for tobacco smoke to pass into the lungs. • Menthol to cool and numb throat, reducing throat irritation; making smoke feel smoother. “CANSA appeals to young people, be aware of these tactics and understand that these alterations to products, while enhancing the experience, do nothing to reduce the long-term negative effects of smoking or the risk for several cancers,” said Joubert. Furthermore CANSA warns against the use of hubbly bubbly, hookah pipes or water pipes http:// www.cansa.org.za/hubbly-bubblyor-hookah-smoking-increases-cancer-risk/. Popular among youth when socialising with friends, it’s important to note that tobacco is no less toxic in a hookah pipe than in other tobacco products. Water in the hookah does not filter out the toxic ingredients in the tobacco smoke. Hookah smokers may actually inhale more tobacco smoke than cigarette smokers do, because of the large volume of smoke inhaled in one smoking session. The sale of hookahs and products is prohibited by law to anyone under the age of 18. Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) http://www.cansa.org.za/ legal-status-e-cigarettes-in-sa/ and similar devices are frequently marketed as aids to quit smoking, or as “healthier” alternatives to tobacco. Joubert said: “However, this has not been proven. They contain nicotine, so they’re addictive and may encourage novice users to later switch to combustible cigarettes. They’re particularly harmful and addictive to people under the age of 25, as their brains are still developing. This makes it easier for them to get addicted to nicotine after using even small amounts of e-cigarettes, which also contain other harmful chemicals. It’s rather recommended to quit smoking by proven treatments.” CANSA encourages young smokers who have started using any tobacco product to get support to quit. CANSA has a free online eKickButt programme that helps with quitting smoking (www.ekickbutt.org.za).Counselling and medication can more than double the chance of a smoker to succeed when attempting to quit.

Beware of rabid dogs KHAYA MAGENU >>khaya.magenu@media24.com THE Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Kokstad has issued a warning to the community to be aware of the rabies after one confirmed case. This comes after one of the dog’s carcass was taken to a lab where it tested positive for rabies. SPCA inspector Chesta Mgumane said that they became wary after one of the aggressive dogs fought with another dog and bit two residents at Shayamoya Township. Mgumane said that they managed to catch one dog and the second one is still at large. “We are warning the people of Kokstad to be aware of this stray dog who are acting strangely,” said Mgumane. Mgumane said that the dog is medium sized and black in colour. Mgumane said that rabies is passed on to humans from infected animals and is almost always fatal. “Our communities must know that rabies symptoms include be-

havioral changes of the animal, aggressiveness and excessive salivation,” said Mgumane. Mgumane encouraged communities of Kokstad to vaccinate their animals and not allow them to roam the streets. He advised communities to immediately consult a medical doctor or animal health technician if they are bitten by any animals. Mgumane said that the SPCA vaccinates animals at their premises on Saturdays. They aim to vaccinate as many dogs and cats as they can against rabies. The owner of the dog which tested positive and who asked the Fever not to mention her name, said that she noticed her dog was “not well” when it started behaving aggressively towards her children and chickens. “My dog used to be friendly towards my young children, but last week he started behaving aggressively,” said the owner of the dog. If anyone spots a suspected rabid dog, call 083 207 2447 or 039 727 3092/8221.

Gravel road under community attention SIPHELELE NKETO >>siphelele@media24.com

NSTEAD of waiting for Government to re-gravel roads, rural women from Ward 6, in the Hlabeni village outside Bulwer have started maintaining a gravel road which they said was troubling. They said that since the dawn of democracy, the roads have never received any Government attention. More than 10 women from the village came together with the goal of helping Government maintain the roads.

From last weekend they used hoes and spades and worked on the road to make it better. Resident, Nosidumo Cele, who had been living in the area since 1981, said that they are tired of waiting for Government’s help. Cele said that they have asked their ward councillor to put pressure on the municipality to maintain their road but nothing had been done. “Ambulances, hearses and other emergency vehicles do not reach us because of the road. People living with disabilities also struggle to move with their wheelchairs,” said Cele.

Cele said that a certain part of the road has been completed and they are left with about a kilometre to complete. Another villager, Silvina Ngcamu said that the road got worse on rainy days. Ward councillor, Basha Zondi said that she and the Dr Nkosazana Dlamaini Zuma Municipality are aware of the bad state of the road and would be sending TLBs and graders to gravel the road, however, she did not specify when this would be done. “The mayor has visited the area and the road will be fixed soon,” said Zondi.

EAST GRIQUALAND FEVER

OPINION

NDZ VIEWPOINT GREETINGS to all residents of our beloved municipality and the entire community of Harry Gwala District, the month of May is recognised as Africa Month, a time when the continent of Africa commemorates the founding of the Organisation of African Unity. Celebrated on May 25, since its establishment in 1963, Africa Day as it is now known marks the beginning of a quest for the unity of the continent and for the political and economic emancipation of its people as well as co-operation among them.

NC VEZI MUNICIPAL MANAGER

UMZ VIEWPOINT ZWELIPHANSI SKHOSANA MUNICIPAL MANAGER GREETINGS to all community members of Umzimkhulu. 2017/2018 IDP OUTREACH PROGRAMME IN PROGRESS

As local government, we are at the season whereby we have to engage and update our communities about the distance thus far travelled towards rendering service delivery in Umzimkhulu. We undertake this exercise in line within the consolidated and adopted a five-year IDP document, as prescribed in the Municipal Systems Acts. As a leader in the third sphere of governance, our strategic responsibility is to take a centre stage by inviting all local stakeholders to partake in this programme hence we ought to have a united approach towards implementation of service delivery. Although turnout by the stakeholders quite disappointing,

GKM VIEWPOINT

The theme for this year is “The Year of Nelson Mandela Building a Better Africa and a Better World”. As part of the celebrations, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality in collaboration with its stakeholders hosted Child Protection Week and Children’s Day on May 16, at Kwa Thunzi Community Hall, the main aim of this programme is to respond to the issues that have been raised in all of our war rooms and to use a collaborative approach when addressing the social ills that seem to be a thorn in the development of our societies. The Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality was privilege to host the Harry Gwala District Growth and Development Summit held at Sani Pass on May 15 and 16,

proving yet again that as the NDZ we are a destination of choice. Africa Month seeks to increase the appreciation and demand for arts and culture goods and services and stimulate competitive markets for Intra-Africa trade. This is the very same reason that as the Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality will again be taking part in the up-coming Royal Show for the year taking place in Pietermaritzburg. Our exhibitors will be showcasing their artistic products, displaying the talent that is existing at NDZ municipality; our tourism unit will be there as well to continue the good work that they are doing with regards to the marketing of the Southern Drakensberg as the destination.

The municipal sod turning took place during the course of the week around the different wards; these sod turnings are usually marked with much elation from community members, the mayor, municipal officials, contractors and stakeholders concerned. The mayor made few remarks after each and every sod turning that many thanks go to the project managers from the municipality, implementing agents, contractors, fellow councillors and the entire NDZ municipal administration, whose combined efforts have led us here today. These development projects will benefit a number of people and is aimed at meeting the needs of the most vulnerable and deserving beneficiaries. Thank you.

issues raised will indeed be cascaded to these departments by Umzimkhulu Municipality. Thus far communities of this rural based municipality have registered their concerns of the snail-paced service delivery which is rendered on roads, water, housing and many more. As they raised thorny social ills, communities are also registering challenges of cell phone network in Umzimkhulu. We would like to applaud these communities for their impressive turnouts and attendance. We appreciate the fact that our communities have to raise their concerns and have a responsibility not to be submissive which then triggers robust engagement. Our understanding is these engagements do not suggests any attacks on the municipality but capacitate this municipality to grow and improve on its approach.

PUBLIC PROTESTS As we understand and respect the fact that communities have expressed their views robustly, we would like to caution our communities to guard against being misled by populists who cunningly take advantage of their vulnerability. We therefore would like to remind our communities that municipal doors are always open for engagements, if issues are not getting the desired attention at the ward levels. On the positive note, we would like to applaud that no public facility had been damage in the recent public unrest as maturity prevailed. LAND DISTRIBUTION WITHOUT COMPENSATION It is now a public knowledge that as a country, we have declared a different stunts on the land issues. We would like to call upon our

communities to respect and acknowledge that currently some of the land which are owned by Government or the private sector. Any smash and grab approach of the land is equal to crime, therefore participants will be dealt as criminals by state security. The tone of Government with regard to land issue is clear, it is that communities will engage authorities then potential activities will be implemented on land and will be profiled so that Government could embark on processes to budget accordingly. As there is a review of Section 25 of the Constitution, stakeholders are encouraged to forward written submissions to Pat Jayiya at P.O. Box 15, Cape Town, 8000 or e-mail to pjayiya@parliament.gov.za. They are furthermore encouraged to call 021 403 3661 or fax 086 465 0678. Until we meet again.

LULAMILE MAPHOLOBA GREATER KOKSTAD MUNICIPAL MANAGER WARM greetings to the Kokstad community and community at large. WOMEN WORKING TOGETHER TO ACHIEVE COMMON GOAL: The women workshop will be held on May 18, with the theme “Women working together to achieve a common goal” at the Bhongweni Youth Center at 9 am. This is one of the initiatives taken by the gender office under the Special Programmes Unit within the office of the municipal manager. The office is responsible for various functions including, Women’s Caucus and The Gender Forum. The purpose of the Women’s Workshop is to ensure that women partake in Government programmes and they are empowered with information and knowledge that will assist them in future to build better communities. The workshop will focus on parenting skills, substance abuse avoidance, teenage pregnancy and impregnation avoidance. The focus of the workshop was influenced by challenges and experiences that are faced by women in Kokstad and around the globe as that of parenting children that are battling with substance abuse which has become a mushrooming quagmire. This challenge not only became a unanimous problem among Kokstad women, but it also gave rise to the need for parenting skills to be imparted onto the women of Kokstad. In addition,

MATAT VIEWPOINT DR DCT NAKIN MUNICIPAL MANAGER DR. DCT NAKIN MATATIELE MUNICIPAL MANAGER WARM greetings as we kick-start the winter season. We are now in the last quarter of the 2017/2018 financial year. It is a stage where the Monitoring and Evaluation/Risk Services Unit is currently finalising performance planning for the next financial year (2018/2019). The Municipality is consolidating its 2018/2019 Service Delivery and Budget Implementation Plan (SDBIP). It’s in line with section 69 (1) (a) of the Municipal Finance Management Act (MFMA) and will then advertise it for the public viewing. MUNICIPALITY RESPONDS TO A HIGH RATE OF YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT The municipality contributes to the improvement of sector skills through achieving a more favourable balance between demand and supply, and ensuring that education and training is acknowledged and enhances the skills of the current work force. To achieve this, the municipality has signed a service level agreement with Ulwazi Youth Development — a non-profit organisation serving the youth from the ages of 18-35 years. This programme has seen about 20 graduates placed in different departments within the municipality. This number adds to eighteen interns who are funded by the municipality, bringing the total to thirty-five. PUBLIC NOTICE TO OUR READERS

the increasing rate of teenage pregnancy and impregnation were also of a great concern. These parenting skills will also involve tools to help such parents deal with and help their children through and out of substance addiction as well as avoiding teenage parenthood. The key stakeholders to the workshop is the Department of Social Development, Department of Health, South African Police Services, Department of Correctional Services, Community Policing forum, SANCA and NGO’s. GREATER KOKSTAD MUNICIPALITY PARTICIPATES IN THE HARRY GWALA LED SUMMIT: A week after the GKM Growth and Development Summit was held, the Harry Gwala District Municipality holds a two-day district wide Growth and Development Summit from May 15-16, under the theme; “working together for share growth and prosperity’’. This comes as a positive move for the Greater Kokstad area as it serves as a relevant platform to escalate some of the contribution made by GKM stakeholders during the growth and development summit. This gives us the hope that the work done so far will get the attention of potential investors at a larger scale. We appreciate and welcome the District initiative which complements the efforts of local municipalities within the Harry Gwala District. Thank you for lending me your eyes and ears, we will meet again, same time, same place. The department of Rural Development and Land Reform has noticed the illegal sale and allocation of land as well as building structures on arable lands. Such occurrences have been noted within the Ramohlakoana location, which falls under Malubaluba administrative area. Ramohlakoana traditional leaders have confirmed that these sites have been demarcated by certain people within the community who have not followed the legislative framework of the department. This notice serves to notify the public that this conduct is unlawful and therefore have illegally bought and occupied the land in question. The department therefore appeals to the perpetrators to stop this unlawful practice immediately. If the occupier/ owner of these structures do not have proof of entitlement, he/ she must remove them from the aforesaid land within five days. Should this fail, the department will have no option but to remove the structures at your cost. MISSING CHILD FOUND DEAD Matatiele SAPS has announced that the body of the child from the Njongweville area was found near Swartberg over the past weekend. All search and rescue efforts for the child are cancelled with immediate effect from the side of the SAPS. However, investigations are continuing to establish the identity of the person (s) responsible for her kidnapping and subsequent death. “A murder docket has been opened and is currently under investigation as we strongly believe that the child was killed”, said SAPS Colonel Ngame. “Once known, the suspect will be tracked down and brought to book,” Ngame said. A word of gratitude is extended to all community members who took part in the search for the child when she was reported missing. Keep up the good spirit of neighbourhood, let us always practice that “your child is my child and my child is your child” spirit. “We are a Destination of Choice and Excellence.”

SO CHIEF NGUBANE IS THE BEST SOLUTION TO SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS. JUST CALL HIM ON: 064 751 3461.

THE MAGIC WALLET & SHORT BOYS OF CHIEF NGUBANE SAVED MY LIFE

I am Mrs Hlengiwe Mkhize from Margate in KZN province, my personal contacts details 063 072 5381. After making a final decision of committing suicide because of serious disappointment that I had get from this fake Doctors, Sangomas and Herbalist after I went to them to boost my business and they told me sell my house and other properties because of bad things that jealous people put and take the money to them for prayers so that I can start new life with the money after they done the prayers with it and also it will be increased. When I went to visit them in there office in Johannesburg I was very shocked to find there office closed and there contacts numbers on voice mail until today my money gone like that. It was very hard for my family,friends even party members to believe my story after I lost everything that I worked for my entire life until one close business partner also a party member a well known business man in KZN because he owned lots of filling stations,lodges and hotels in most areas in KZN told me his secret behind his good position in ANC party and his successful life for him to be one of the richest people in Margate that Chief Ngubane was the one who help him using the SHORT BOYS by putting R2 000 000 in his FNB account within 4hrs and paid him back R500 000 and remain with R1,5 million which he used to start the business as his capital, after one month he contact Chief Ngubane again to use his RATS to put R1.5 million in his house which it happen with 6hrs and he paid him back 20% of it, without even a single instructions or rules about the money and he never even involve or mention about ancestors. He told me to buy Sunday news papers to read others miracles he done to different people like the Zulus, Xhosa and I even surprised also to read about an indian business woman testifies the truth of her wealth. I couldn’t waste time but to call this great man and I also choose the SHORT BOYS to put R2 000 000 in my Nedbank account and he promised that before 3pm afternoon the R2 000 000 will be In my account because In the morning the SHORT BOYS was already fully booked with other customers to put money In there account and anywhere they wanted It. After receiving a notification from the bank that R2 000 000 has deposited In my account it took me sometime to believe that am not dreaming until I went inside the bank and withdraw R50 000 without any question from the bank about the transaction that was done and I paid him back R500 000. After a week I also spoke to him about the LUCKY WALLET which he posted through speed counter and I get R50 000 everyday and I make R350 000 every week which I paid him back R150 000 every week. About the story that was published in different news papers in January about a man who won the LOTTO in KZN Province, he was my husband who I introduced to Chief Ngubane which she used the secret LUCKY NUMBERS that Chief Ngubane gave her to use and win Lottery and the share the money which Chief Ngubane took 30% of the winnings.

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 CHIEF NGUBANE and he chose the MAGIC WALLET that gave him R50 000 everyday and pays CHIEF NGUBANE R150 000 every week from the R350 000 he gets everyweek (7days).

BUSINESS woman, Noluthando Mnguni from Umzimkhulu will be hosting a “Women of Worth”business session at Amble Inn Hotel in Ixopo on June 9. The event will be attended by women in business who will share their positive stories to inspire others. Speaking to the Fever, Mnguni said that many rural women have the potential to run businesses but they lack information. Mnguni called on women from Harry Gwala and surrounding areas to attend the event. “Harry Gwala District is one of the most rural places in the country with lots of women running small businesses like selling sweets and cakes in the streets. Some women are running salons and they need to be capacitated to market and grow their businesses,” said Mnguni who runs a shisa-nyama and a catering and décor business in Umzimkhulu. Mnguni said that many unemployed young women who are graduates in the district lacked information on how to establish businesses. Mnguni said that young women need to be empowered in business. Government departments and private companies will be giving presentations at the event. Ukhozi FM radio presenters Nonhlahla “Mroza” Buthelezi will be the guest speaker while Boniswa Moto will be the emcee. Motivational speaker Celiwe Chemane, author Zuzeka Nomvalo and Dr Thandeka Ngcobo will also be attending. For more information, contact Mnguni at 083 387 1170.

Rural women defeat poverty SIPHELELE NKETO >>Siphelele@media24.com

A

S part of fighting poverty, five rural women Thandi Njengela, Vivian Dlamini, Nomthandazo Bango, Phumzile Yona and Favorite Ndabani have formed a co-operative called Sizonqoba Textile which created job opportunities in Umzimkhulu. The women formed the co-operative in 2011 after they personally ex-

perienced poverty in their homes. They said, instead of folding arms and waiting for Government support, they decided to make clothes and school uniforms and sold them to local schools. “We received lots of training on how to make quality clothes through the assistance of Harry Gwala District Municipality,”said Thandi Njengela who is the chairperson for the co-operative. Njengela said that members of

this co-operative are single mothers and some of their husbands are unemployed and use their earnings to feed their families and send their children to school.Njengela said that poverty is now a thing of the past in their families. “We have trained many young people and women who assist us during busy days. The co-operative has grown tremendously,” Njengela said. The co-operative makes garments for 20 local churches and

school uniforms for 15 schools in Umzimkhulu. Umzimkhulu municipal mayor Mphuthumi Mpabanga commended the work done by the rural women. “The women have supplied the municipality with tracksuits at sport tournaments and I am proud of their work. I want to encourage local communities including youth to form businesses to grow local economy,” said Mpabanga.

At the handover are pupils wearing their new uniform, members of the foundation and teachers.

donate new school uniforms on May 9. The school has 139 pupils from Grade R – Grade 7. School principal, Sifiso Msomi said that most pupils are from homes depending only on social grants and as a result came to school without proper uniform. “School uniforms keep pupils disciplined and makes it easy to identify them. “Because of the large number of pupils who come to school with old uniform, the school approached businesses as well as the Department of Social Development to do-

nate new uniforms,” said Msomi who said that the pupils’ self esteem was going to improve after they received new uniforms. Parents were pleased when members of Reap Foundation with the help of taxi owners donated uniforms to pupils. Reap Foundation chairperson, David Sethuntsa said that the foundation was formed in 2015 by a group of retired teachers, nurses and police to help orphans and vulnerable children in rural areas of Umzimkhulu. Sethuntsa said that they also provided care to elderly people.

“In the past years, we collected money and bought uniforms for school children and this year we decided to ask sponsors to support us with school uniform. We aim to reach many schools in Harry Gwala and change many lives,” said Sethuntsa. Sethuntsa said that they were also fighting teenage pregnancy and crime by motivating young people through awareness campaigns. “We want to build peaceful societies in the Harry Gwala District and bring back the dignity of pupils,” said Sethuntsa.
