HE Ugu District Municipality achieved an impressive matric pass rate — coming second in KZN. One of the star pupils is Londeka Dlamini (17), from Gamalakhe Commercial High School, who earned six certificates and a trophy for excellent performance in her matric final exams at an awards ceremony hosted by nonprofit organisation Endeavours in Gamalakhe last Sunday. The motive behind the awards ceremony was to applaud, motivate and encourage Gamalakhe’s top achievers — Dlamini, Lindelani Gcaba, Lindokuhle Khuzwayo, Zanele Khawula, Kwanele Mtolo, Athayanda Mkhize, Bulelwa Nqoko and Nonhlanhla from Galeni, Olwandle and Gamalakhe high schools. KwaZulu-Natal’s Class of 2018 achieved a pass rate of 76,2% — an improvement of 3,3% from 2017. The Ugu District Municipality came in second in the province with 79,6%, following Amajuba District, which reclaimed its top position in the province by achieving an impressive 81,7%. Coming after Ugu was Umkhanyakude at 78,1%, Umgungundlovu (77,5%), Pinetown (77,4%), Umlazi (76,76%), Uthukela (76,13%), King Cetshwayo (73,9%), Zululand (73,8%), Umzinyathi (73,1%), Harry Gwala (71,9%) and Ilembe (71,1%).

Teachers and principals from different high schools in Gamalakhe pictured with the top achievers. Speaking on behalf of the Gamalakhe Circuit and the Department of Education, Simon Shusha said they are grateful to the class of 2018 for giving their all during exams. “Coming second in the province is no child’s play. It is because of continued hard work, dedication and support, not only from the pupils but from the educators, principals, parents, school governing bodies (SGB) and the community. I am confident that the class of 2019 will definitely put the Ugu District

at a number one position in the province,” said Shusha. The awards ceremony was also attended by teachers of neighbouring schools, parents and members of the SGB. According to the Gamalakhe Circuit office, Galeni High School came in first against high schools in Gamalakhe with a pass rate of 93,3%. It was followed by Mashesha High School (91,3%), Olwandle High (88,89%), Gamalakhe Commercial High (81,89%), Mlonde

High (78,79%) and Mcushwa with 57,14%. The principal of the winning school in Gamalakhe, Thandazile Mbotho of Galeni High, said if it were not for these results, they would not be able to see themselves as teachers. “As teachers we can now walk like the world is ours. Our pupils have really made us proud. Galeni is now a school to be reckoned with and that is all because of the class of 2018. We are grateful,” she said.

RESIDENT Cyril Ramaphosa visited the South Coast on Monday, January 7, interacting with residents in various areas including the Masinenge Housing Project in Margate, Merlewood, Marburg Secondary School hall, as well the Port Shepstone taxi rank. The visit came as the ruling party celebrates 107 years and prepares for their annual January 8 statement as well as the release of their election manifesto ahead of this year's national elections. The visit was to encourage residents to register to vote as well as to remind them of the open registration weekend on January 26 and 27. The president, accompanied by ANC KwaZulu-Natal chairperson Sihle Zikalala, started his morning at the

Masinenge Housing project where he addressed the Masinenge community, arguing that the ANC-led government was the only one that delivered adequate service to the poor, using the housing project as a point of reference. The 882-unit Masinenge project, launched in 2013, has been marred with controversy over the years including construction delays, vandalism allegations, as well as illegal occupation by alleged Umkhonto weSizwe veterans. Ray Nkonyeni Municipality has since said the delays were due to the firing of a previous contracter for not delivering, however, reassured the public that a new contracter has since been appointed and the housing project should be completed within a year. Ramaphosa said progress with the housing project was more reason for

people to vote for the ANC. “They have moved into houses now and their dignity has been restored. They can see, they can feel, they can smell the work that is being done for them by the ANC-led government. When it comes to housing projects in this region, it comes out tops in the whole of South Africa,” said the president. In Merlewood, Ramaphosa met with more residents, including a 103year-old woman who asked him to assist her with the payout from her late husband’s demise. Her husband died during World War 2 and she said the money would assist her family in paying for household expenses like water and electricity.

Addressing the crowd, Ramaphosa said the ANC would reach another 107 years and would undoubtedly win the upcoming elections. “Victory is certain for us. We will win the elections, whether they like it or not. Progress and all the best things that our country can give the people can only be done when the ANC is in government,” he said.

Port Shepstone gets 120 new KADWA'S police officers T

HE South African Police Service (SAPS) held three passing-out parades simultaneously for 3 701 newly trained police officers at the Tshwane Training Academy in Gauteng, at the Bisho Academy in the Eastern Cape and Oudtshoorn Academy in the Western Cape. Of the newly trained police members, 120 will be deployed in the Ugu Cluster by the acting provincial commissioner of KZN. UGU Cluster Commander Major General Sethenya Nxamagele welcomed the members on December 22 at Brackenmoor Hotel in Uvongo. Nxamagele said she was pleased to have the added manpower, especially at this busy time of the year when they will be used to ensure the safety of all South Coasters and visitors. The newly trained police officers are the third intake to graduate from the re-

vised Basic Police Training Learning Programme which was introduced in 2016. “Thank you in advance for the selfless service you are going to render to the communities and for sacrificing family time to make South Africa safe,” said General Khehla Sitole at the ceremony. Delivering his keynote address, Police Minister Bheki Cele encouraged the new recruits to be upstanding officers in their communities and continue with the fight against Gender Based Violence. “You must know your Ministerial Six Point Plan on how you should respond to women and children in distress. Please assist our young ladies and form a new battalion of vicious watchdogs whose responsibility is to rid the community of and protect our women and children against these monsters.

OMEGA NGEMA >>omega.moagi@media24.com THE African Security Congress political party is steadily gaining momentum in the region, with almost 1 000 members registered. The political party, which says it stands for the rights of security guards and cleaners across the country, was formally registered in April 2017, and says it is confident it has gained enough support to earn a seat in Parliament following this year’s elections. Party co-ordinator in the region Bongani Ngcele said the formation of the party was long overdue as cleaners have endured endless abuse from employees for a very long time. “The work of security guards and cleaners is the most strenuous, but they are the most marginalised and ill-treated industries in the employment realm in the

Executive members of the political party, African Security Congress, which stands for the rights of security guards and cleaners. country,” said Ngcele. “Even when Parliament announced that the minimum wage for all employees in the country should be R20 per hour, employers in the security and cleaning industry blatantly ignored these regulations,” said Ngcele. He said these issues are primarily due

to the fact that their services are often outsourced and service providers look to profit from the fees they charge their clients in government. Among the party’s demands should they be elected, is that outsourcing be eradicated. They want security guards to be paid a minimum of R8 500 per month

for an eight-hour working day, and want companies that are non-compliant with government regulations to be done away with. “There are several non-compliant companies who do not pay the agreed rate of pay, charge workers for uniforms and protective clothing, make employees work under unsafe conditions and are late payers. These injustices need to be done away with,” said Ngcele. He said with about 10 million registered security guards alone, the party is confident that it will gain more support. “We encourage our workers to continue to respect their employers and not cause any unnecessary trouble that might lead to them getting fired even if they are our members, because our aim is not to fight the employer but to secure adequate rights for all who work in security and cleaning companies.”

Choose your course wisely M

ANY matrics from the class of 2018 find themselves in the fortunate position of having performed better than anticipated in their National Senior Certificate examination, achieving a bachelor’s pass and qualifying for higher education access. But while they are now in a position to apply for further study, these prospective students need to ensure they do their homework before signing up with institutions still accepting applications for study in 2019, an expert says. “In particular, parents and matriculants must ensure they don’t fall prey to institutions that are either not registered and accredited, or whose qualifications are not recognised,” said Nola Payne, head of faculty: information and communications technology at The Independent Institute of Education, SA’s largest private higher education institution. “The good news, however, is that there are still exciting study options available, particularly in the private sector where good institutions have a strong focus on work-ready programmes,” she said. Payne says now is also a good time for even those prospective students already accepted into a programme, to consider whether they have chosen the right study path. “This coming month provides an opportunity for prospective students to investigate all their options and sign up for a quality qualification with an accredited institution, whether they left it too late or performed better than envisioned. And those who have already signed up, should honestly assess whether they are excited about the degree on which they will soon embark, as well as the institution they will attend. “Make sure that you are studying for the right reasons, and that your qualification will provide clear access to a specific career, whether it be a professional qualification such as accounting, law or teaching, or in a new exciting career path

such as brand management, digital marketing, network engineering, game design and development, and application and cloud development. Don’t just apply for any degree at any institution for the sake of earning a qualification,” she said. Payne says South Africa’s single quality assurance system and one National Qualifications Framework means that any institution offering a registered and accredited qualification, whether public or private, is offering a qualification of equal standing. She says all registered and accredited higher education institutions, whether they be public universities or private, are registered by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). They are only registered if they have been accredited by the Council on Higher Education (CHE) and registered by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). “To look up a qualification on the NQF, search for it on the SAQA website, or ask the institution for its SAQA identity number, which should be readily available. If the institution is recognised by the DHET and the programme is listed on the NQF, prospective students and their parents can be confident about the bona fides of any qualification they want to pursue,” said Payne. She says that as the world of work changes and evolves, new programmes are constantly developed in response to workplace demands. “This means there will regularly be new and more exciting options on offer compared to the past, and potentially fields of qualification that are more aligned with the career aspirations of prospective students. “However, it is imperative that one does one’s homework carefully, because unscrupulous operators have become increasingly sophisticated in their methodology,” said Payne. — Supplied.

Youngest mothers of New Year’s Day babies were aged 16 KWAZULU-NATAL Health MEC Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo believes more open dialogue about the dangers of unprotected sex and teenage pregnancy could reduce by up to half, the number of mothers who die while giving birth, or shortly afterwards. “Significantly, teenage pregnancy accounts for about eight to 10% of all deliveries in the country, which is about a million deliveries per year. “But close to 45% of maternal deaths in the country come from this small 10% [of teenage mothers], because these young people generally delay coming to our clinics. They hide the pregnancy. And by the time they come to deliver, there are certain complications that cannot be reversed. “Therefore, if we were to reduce or eradicate teenage pregnancy, we would significantly improve the maternal health outcomes of the province.” The MEC was speaking at G.J. Crookes Hospital in Scottburgh, where he also announced that by 8 am, KwaZulu-Natal had 36 babies (17 boys and 19 girls) born on New Year’s Day. Bongiwe Mlotshwa’s (30) daughter was the first New Year’s Day baby in the province, arriving exactly on the stroke of midnight, at Eshowe Hospital. At Addington Hospital, Sindisiwe Gumede (24) gave birth to boy twins. The two youngest mothers of New Year’s Day babies were aged 16, and gave birth at Ekhombe and Edendale hospitals. Although G.J. Crookes Hospital is also concerned about the rate of teenage pregnancy in its service ar-

ea, the MEC said he is nevertheless pleased that it has developed a programme of community dialogues to heighten awareness about the benefits of abstinence, protected sex, and the dangers of teenage pregnancy. He also applauded the hospital for having not a single maternal death for the past three quarters of the year. Describing the hospital as a beacon of hope, Dhlomo also commended the mayor of Umdoni Municipality, Thabani Dube, and his counterpart at Umzumbe Municipality Sizwe Ngcobo, for being active members of the hospital board. He said both leaders set a good example of how the involvement of community leaders can improve efficiency at a health-care facility. “The governance of this hospital, not only on the side of management, but also in terms of community leaders who are supporting it, is what makes it this strong. “Recently, we had a meeting with the Minister of Health Dr Aaron Motsoaledi where we expressed our concern regarding the rate of maternal deaths, which are coming in mainly from district hospitals. “Listening to the leadership of this hospital, from doctors to nurses, and how they are supported by the district specialist teams and consultants from neighbouring hospitals, I wish that we could take the lessons from here and cascade them to other hospitals to improve maternal and child health outcomes because that is one of our main goals.” — Supplied.

Editor’s note WARM greetings to all our readers for the very first time in 2019. The year has already begun with a blast, with so many fantastic things happening around the beautiful South Coast. President Cyril Ramaphosa graced our shores on Monday and many humble residents were delighted to be able to meet him in person and share their concerns with him. Congratulations to our matrics, especially those in the Ugu District, which was placed second in KZN. Port Shepstone High School once again impressed with a 99,6% pass rate. To all those who tried their best and passed, you did it, and now the doors are wide open to a bright future. Grasp every opportunity that comes your way. Unfortunately, the festive season did not go without tragic incidents such as drownings, fatal accidents and crime. Our condolences go out

to those who lost loved ones over this period. However, it is a new dawn and we welcome the 120 new police cadets to Port Shepstone SAPS who are hopefully going to contribute to making our community much safer. Please continue sharing your positive stories with us and voicing your concerns. The beautiful thing about living on the South Coast is that it feels like a holiday all year round, and the beach is always near. Turn your resolutions into reality this year, and may it be a good one for you all! Happy reading. NAZREEN nazreen.rasool@media24.com

a hassle-free stay during this period. The municipality’s Festive Season Preparedness Plan remained our lodestar which outlined our commitment in sustaining a stable supply of water and sanitation service during the festive season. A Joint Operations Committee was established to closely monitor and administer the implementation of this plan, a task which was carried out with an assurance. We accelerated our response time on all recorded calls of service interruptions and kept our channels of communication open with our key stakeholders. We shall forever be grateful for the co-operation received from residents and councillors during this period. All our workers were available and fully committed to serving our residents and visitors. Still confronted by the challenge of ageing infrastructure, coupled with financial difficulties, measures were developed to have adequate resources available i.e human resources, water tankers, vehicles and standby private service providers to enhance the municipality’s ability to swiftly respond to service delivery emergencies as efficiently as possible. It is a well documented fact that during peak season periods our supply networks experience high demand of water supply, which places severe strain on our water network. We were indeed on high alert in all hotspot areas and ensured that in the case where there was a prolonged water supply interruption, alternative measures were implemented within the minimum amount of time. As we look ahead, we have identified certain areas that require urgent attention and these areas will find their expressions on our budget priorities as we head towards the municipal budget adjustment process. We look forward to joining forces with residents of this district in the year 2019 to continue transforming our district into a sustainable, resilient, and successful district that we can all be proud of. Let’s continue having a conversation on water and sanitation-related issues through our Facebook page: ‘Ugu Municipality Talk’ or our 24-Hour Call Centre at 08000 WATER (92837) or (039 688 5830/36 or SMS line 44751.

Our thanks for your help.

Grateful for welcoming customer service Dear Editor, I RECENTLY had problems with my car and residing in Port Edward, it is quite a schlepp to take it to “town” for expert attention/advice/repair. Ultimately, the cause of the problem was determined and prior to mechanical repairs, new tyres had to be fitted. It was recommended that I use the expertise of Tyre Mart at Shelly Beach. One of the employees, Corne, had been told to assist me and he waited for me in the driveway. In minutes, the car was put up for determining the tyre problem and he ad-

vised that new tyres had to be fitted. I was able to wait in the reception area, there were refreshments and a magazine available to shorten the wait, and in no time I was back on the road to have the rest of the problem attended to. The cost of the replacement tyres was acceptable and the friendliness of the staff can be felt on the premises. Also, they are very welltrained to provide competent assistance. Well done to you, Corne, and your guys. MONIKA DAHLSTROEM Port Edward

ITTLE children at schools all over the South Coast took their first step into the rest of their lives yesterday morn-

ing. Although some of the children still needed to get used to the idea of having to be away from home for half the day, every day, there were no tears in sight and the morning went smoothly.

Die eksklusiewe rykmanskip ‘The World’ vaar verby Shelly Beach onderweg na Durban. Dit word uitsluitlik deur skatryk-aandeelhouers gebruik. Foto deur Sarel van der Merwe.

‘The World’: Die uniekste seevaartuig ter wêreld? JOHAN PRETORIUS

V

oorverlede week sit die uwe saam met familielede by ‘n eetplek en sien hoe een van hierdie moderne, groot passasierskepe ‘n ent die see in by ons verbyvaar onderweg na Durban. Onwillekeurig wens jy, veral as jy nog nooit ‘n bootreis meegemaak het nie, dat jou dag nog sal kom. Ewenwel, ons het verder gekuier en huis toe vertrek. Die familie is intussen terug Gauteng toe, en die nuwe jaar se aktiwiteite het begin. Net toe ek begin wonder waaroor ek vandeesweek gaan skryf, sien ek op Facebook foto’s van die skip, met die naam ‘The World’, daar geplaas deur Sarel van der Merwe, beter bekend as die slangvanger van die Suidkus. Sarel het by die foto’s geskryf die boot word besit deur ‘n groep skatryk mense, en die meeste van hulle bly op die skip. Van die eienaars is Madonna en Arnold Schwarzenegger. Tydens ‘n telefoon-oproep het Sarel my meegedeel hy het ‘n Kenko Pro ‘Field 80A Spotting Scope’ en sy selfoon gebruik, en my toestem-

STILTETYD: As jy bestekopname van jou reis deur 2018 moet doen, hoe sou jy dit beskryf? Aan wie of watter faktore skryf jy die sukses of mislukking van jou lewensreis toe? Elkeen van ons se lewensreis is uniek. Daar was ’n eeu of so gelede ’n wedloop om eerste die Suidpool te bereik. Die eerste mense wie se name aangeteken is om amptelik die prestasie te bereik was die ekspedisie van Roald Amundsen. Die roete het na bewer-

ming gegee om die foto’s te plaas. ‘The World’ is inderwaarheid ‘n merkwaardige vaartuig. Maritieme bronne verskaf fassinerende inligting oor die vaartuig. Dit het die enigste volgrootte tennisbaan ter see, ‘n spa van 7,000 vierkante meter, ‘n fiksheidsentrum, ‘n wynversameling van meer as 12 000 bottels, het teen verlede jaar meer as 1 600 hawens besoek, en amper een miljoen seemyle afgelê. Dit word gebruik om die eienaars/ aandeelhouers op unieke ekspedisies te neem na van die mees afgeleë plekke op aarde. Geeneen van die suites op die twaalfdek-vaartuig is te huur nie. Elkeen van die 165 luukse woon-eenhede aan boord, wat wissel tussen $4-miljoen vir ‘n ‘kleiner’ eenheid, tot $20-miljoen dollar vir die drie-slaapkamereenhede, word besit deur mense met bates van minstens $10- tot $15miljoen. Dis die minimum. Indien jy nie een van die aandeelhouers is nie, kan net ‘n persoonlike uitnodiging jou aan boord kry. Die vaartuig is in 2002 gebou, en aanvanklik is beplan om een van die dekke vir reisigers beskik-

baar te stel, maar dinge het anders uitgewerk. Dit het toe die enigste residensiële toerskip ter wêreld geword. Alle eienaars is aandeelhouers, en stem elke jaar oor alles, van die skip se roetes vir die jaar, tot die soort brandstof wat gebruik word en die Kersfees-versierings. Een van die skip se woordvoerders, wat self op die vaartuig woon, sê alle aandeelhouers is baie suksesvol in hul onderskeie gebiede: Regsgeleerdes, geneeshere, argitekte, entrepreneurs, olie-magnate en alle soorte miljardêrs. Hulle het ook wonings op ander plekke, private stralers en ander luukshede, en van hulle is bekende kunsversamelaars. Die meeste van hulle bestee net beperkte tye van die jaar op die boot. Nog ‘n woordvoerder het dit beklemtoon dat iemand soos Oprah Winfrey waarskynlik nie as aandeelhouer toegelaat sal word nie. “Ons wil nie paparazzi hier hê nie. Hierdie boot is ‘n skuilplek en ‘n toevlugsoord. Jy sal ook nie uitvind wie anders hier bly nie. Alles word baie vertroulik behandel.” ‘n Jaar gelede was daar 142

families wat die skip periodiek as tuiste gebruik het, en almal is deur ‘n streng keuringproses voordat hulle hulle geld kon neersit. In daardie stadium was sowat die helfte van hulle Amerikaans, 45 Europees en, baie verrassend, sowat 20 Suid-Afrikaans. Kry ek die geur van Stellenbosch? Die gemiddelde ouderdom van die aandeelhouers is 64 jaar. Die passassiers bestee ‘n gemiddeld van ses maande op die boot, wat in die Bahamas geregistreer is, en Kersfees is die vaartuig vol mense want familielede en gaste word aan boord genooi. Hoewel die boot 600 passassiers kan huisves, is daar die meeste van die tyd net sowat 300 aan boord. Die konsep het intussen so gewild geword dat daar ‘n soortgelyke skip in aanbou is wat teen 2021 voltooi sal wees, en presies dieselfde diens as ‘The World’ sal lewer. Ons lewe inderdaad in ‘n wêreld van uiterstes: Waar daar saam met wydverspreide armoede en hongersnood, ‘n klein groepie mense is wat in absolute luuksheid lewe.

O K om

ing 99 dae geduur en ’n afstand van 3440 kilometer is afgelê. Die bagasie en toerusting is deur honde per slee vervoer. Dit was ’n uitdagende roete deur die ysige landskap, wat gekenmerk is deur sneeustorms, swak sig en ander gevare. Tog is Amundsen en sy span suksesvol gewees in die bereiking van hul doelwit om die Suidpool te bereik. Amundsen word so aangehaal as hy

Hier is ons in 2019 en goed op pad in Januarie. Hoop dit gaan met julle almal goed in die nuwe jaar. Nog al die jare was Januarie vir my een van die slegste, oninteressantste en depressiefste maande van die jaar. Die ooglopende rede is die besef dat ek in my persoonlike omstandighede hopeloos te veel geeët, gedrink en te veel geld uitgegee het. Wat my sake-onderneming betref, bekommer ek my gewoonlik of al die ekstra voorraad wat ek nog in die vrieskaste het, vinnig genoeg sal verkoop sodat Desember se wins nie nadelig deur bederwing beïnvloed sal word nie. Vanjaar was ons omset baie beter as verlede jaar s’n, so dinge lyk nie te sleg nie. Wat ek wel weet, is dat sommige eetplekke nie naastenby so goed soos gewoonlik gedoen het nie. Ander voel heel tevrede. Ek bly egter by my mening dat die Suidkus te veel eet- en kuierplekke het. Kompetisie is goed vir gehalte en diens, die Watergat hou sy klante, en van die ander ook. Iewers maak dit egter nie sin dat daar bv. nog ‘n pizzaplek in Shelly Beach bygekom het nie. Toegegee, ‘n sterk handelsmerk, maar ons sal moet sien wat buite seisoen gebeur. Iewers elders sal ‘n ander kuierplek dan moontlik sy deure sluit. Ons het lekker krieket gekyk, en was verheug oor die spogvertoning van veral die Proteas se boulers. Die kolwers is ietwat wisselvallig, en die groot toets kom later teen Engeland, Australië en Indië. ‘n Groot besprekingspunt was die twee vangskote van die Pakistani’s wat eers toegelaat is, maar later deur die TV-skeidsregter omgekeer is. Waaroor die bohaai was, kan ek glad nie verstaan nie. Dit was duidelik dat die bal in albei gevalle grond geraak het, en veral iemand wat self krieket gespeel het, weet dit, of behoort te weet. Daar was ‘n baie goeie rede waarom Temba Bavuma bly staan het nadat hy uitgegee is. Hy kon met sy eie oë sien die bal het gras geraak. Soos ekself waar ek agter ons toonbank gestaan het. Die kommentators, self krieketspelers van formaat jare gelede, daarenteen, het gepraat oor die onsekerheid, die omstredenheid en hoe jammer hulle vir die Pakistani’s was. Iets wat ekself, en verskeie kranige spelers op hul dag, mateloos geirriteer het en gladnie kon verstaan nie. Vra enige ervare speler, en die uwe het self op sy dag gespeel: Jy weet wanneer daardie bal gras geraak het. Selfs net effens. Jy voel dit. Jy weet dit. Dan moet jy dit so aandui. Maar deesdae, selfs met die moderne tegnologie, vat hulle kanse, en raak omgesukkeld as hulle nie hul sin kry nie. Daar moet dissiplinêr teen hierdie spelers opgetree word. Hierdie saak is nog lank nie verby nie. Dit gaan weer gebeur. Ons loopstorie kom van Jan Daneel van Bloemfontein: Die onnie lyk kwaad toe hy sê: “Jannie, sê nou dadelik vir my of dit jy was wat gister in my appelboom geklim het om appels te steel.” Jannie: “Meneer, ek kan nie lekker hoor hier in die agterste ry nie.” Die onnie antwoord sarkasties: “Goed. Kom sit hier voor my op die stoel, dan gaan sit ek op jou plek in die agterste ry en dan vra jy my iets.” Hulle ruil plekke, en Jannie vra: “Meneer, wie het gisteraand by my ma gekuier terwyl my pa nagskof gewerk het?” Onnie: “Jy’s reg Jannie, hier agter kan ‘n mens glad niks hoor nie.”

allie gevra word na kommentaar oor sy reis: “I may say that this is the greatest factor: the way in which the expedition is equipped, the way in which every difficulty is foreseen, and precautions taken for meeting or avoiding it. Victory awaits him who has everything in order, luck, people call it. Defeat is certain for him who has neglected to take the necessary precautions in time, this is called

bad luck.” Ons is deur die jaar 2018 jaar en is reeds in die nuwe een. Dit is tyd om weer bestekopname te doen van die pad waarlangs ons tot hiertoe gekom het. Dis tyd om ons suksesse en mislukkings te vier. Dis tyd om erkenning te gee waar dit nodig is. Christene kyk tog anders na die roete waarlangs hulle in die lewe trek. Ja, hulle het ook te doen met uitdagings en soms lyk dit ook of dinge

maar nèt in hulle skoot val. Hulle gee egter altyd erkenning aan God vir Sy leiding. In Hebreërs 2:10 word Christus genoem die Leidsman van ons verlossing. Christene bid ook elke dag om hul daaglikse brood en glo so dat God voorsien in wat nodig is. Kom ons gee erkenning waar dit nodig is. Nie die geluksgodin nie, maar die Allerhoogste het ons met Sy eie hand tot hiertoe gelei.

A night to remember at Gamalakhe Music Festival

Models at the fashion shoot were (from left) Nompilo Ngcobo (25), Anga Nkayitshana (29), Thembekile Mwape (20), Luyanda Nkayishana (32), Mihlali Shosha (18), Londiwe Ngengelihle (18) and Luthando Madlala (23).

NTANDOYENKOSI DLAMINI >>cherronntando@gmail.com THERE was quite a buzz at the T.B. Molefe Stadium in Gamalakhe recently. Over the past four years, the annual Gamalakhe Music Festival has enjoyed support from hundreds of people from all over the province. They gather at the stadium in Gamalakhe to celebrate the Day of Goodwill on December 26. At the 2018 event, festivalgoers got to enjoy a line-up that included national artists such as Mampintsha, Manqonqo, Professor, Sphectacula and DJ Naves, TDK Macassette, Zakwe, Major League, Happy Gal, DJ Sox, DJ Maphorisa and more. Hosting the event were DJ Oros, Collen Zondo, Tha Simelane and Milwazet. Local talent such as 104BPM, Mhlengi_real, Bruce, rapper Flip Vezi, DJ Slwane and many more were also given a chance on stage. Some of the fans of the festival were disappointed that the line-up did not include the famous and trending Busiswa, Prince Kaybee, Dladla Mshunqisi or Shekhinah. Local fan Sanele Cele, who attended the festival, said: “I have never had so much fun in my life. This is a music festival I can still attend in 2019. “Although I wish Busiswa or Dladla Mshunqisi were there to perform, the artists who were booked and came through, really made sure I had the time of my life.’’ The event was presented by Just Vision Events.

T is 2019 and an innovative young duo from Port Shepstone have already marked the year as belonging to them. The founders of Emilohi Brand Building and Management, Sinegugu (24) and Yamandosi Cele (20), are saying that the time for enriching their lives and those of their peers is now. Their new innovation focuses mainly on uplifting young people to reach their full potential as entrepreneurs. Emilohi, a brand-building and management company, works with both men and women who require assistance in building and managing their brands. “We consider ourselves the bridge between small businesses and bigger stellar businesses,” said Sinegugu. Their first major project is a collaboration between local fashion designers and Halfway Ford in Port Shep-

stone. “We came up with a project that celebrates local female fashion designers who work tirelessly making a career out of their passion,” said Yamandosi. “We then partnered with a car brand from Port Shepstone and did a photo shoot for the beautiful La’Nsula designs, which is owned by Zah and Ndeh Nzimakwe; Thembisa Khumalo with her versatile line of clothing which is a mixture of couture and casual clothing; as well as Nompilo’s Boutique, which designs beautiful African print clothing,” said Yamandosi. “We want to create business profiles that will enable our designers to engage with confidence the brands they are looking to partner with,” she said. Needless to say, the sisters are also passionate about giving back through their company. For this reason they have also partnered with a small ceiling and roof company due to the owner Clifford Buthelezi’s drive to uplift

others in his community. “We were fascinated by how he [Buthelezi] understands the business world, the goals he has for his company and most importantly, his efforts in assisting with employment in his community by giving young boys jobs when he gets gigs. He has dedicated his time to teaching these boys how to do ceilings, and taught himself to venture into other home-improvement projects,” said Sinegugu. Their focus is, however, mainly on empowering young women in the business world. “We want to assist women to start businesses, grow their businesses and excel in whatever they do. We stand for young women empowerment. “The business world has industries that are patriarchal. This makes it harder for young women to own successful businesses, especially in rural and urban areas. We want to assist in breaking that inequality however we can,” said Sinegugu.

HE Rotary Club Port Shepstone held its Coins for Charity fundraiser last Saturday. This unique event used a broad strip of double sided tape placed across the main promotion court’s floor of the Southcoast Mall and Shelly Centre, highlighting the sponsor logos along the length of the tape. Rotarians and Child Welfare Port Shepstone staff Carol Meth (public relations officer) and Samantha Podmore (fundraiser), along with other volunteers were on hand during the day to assist the public place their donations on the tape. Donations came in from people of all walks of life. The young and the elderly, took time out from their busy day to contribute and help those in need. As the day progressed the tape began to fill and grow with both coins and notes from the generosity of many who took the time to stop by and donate. “The Rotary Club Port Shepstone wishes to express its heartfelt gratitude to the Southcoast Mall, Shelly Centre, sponsors and South Coast

South Coast DJ is making waves as he builds his brand NTANDOYENKOSI DLAMINI >>cherronntando@gmail.com

Child Welfare Port Shepstone, who will in turn be using the much needed funds to assist with the back to school programme that assists needy children with items like school uniforms and supplies for the 2019 school year. “We are ever so grateful for the generous support from Rotary Port Shepstone, the sponsors and the public that contributed on the day. Your contribution has certainly taken a load off from many that cannot afford the bare essentials and will put a smile on these children’s faces as they embrace the new school year,” said Carol Meth Public Relations Officer at Child Welfare Port Shepstone. “We were blessed to have on board for this amazing event the support from our main sponsors who are Beekman Group as the title sponsors, Umthunzi Hotel as a special sponsor, Barry, Botha and Breytenbach, Thompson Motors, Margate Engineering, Mowat and Partners and Jay Rambharos as Gold sponsors, as well as Cardinal Motors, Southern Natal Construction, Curnow Natal, Steve Gregory, Erich Buhr, Caryl Peatt and as silver sponsors Rowan and Joan D’Arcy.

At the event over the weekend (from left) Graham Dickson (Rotarian), Carol Meth (Child Welfare Port Shepstone), Joan D’Arcy (Rotarian) and Merle Thompson (Rotarian).

A SOUTH Coast-born DJ has been making waves in an attempt to build a recognisable name for himself. Mhlengi “Mhlengi_Real” Khuzwayo from Gamalakhe has made it a point to put his skills on display. It all started in 2013 when Khuzwayo (25) was featured in a poster with the legendary Nkosinathi Maphumulo, better-known as DJ Black Coffee, which is what fuelled his hunger for growth in the music industry. Khuzwayo has since received airplay on radio stations such as Gagasi FM, Radio Sunny South and Umhlobo Wenene FM. The DJ and producer aims to add a unique touch to house music, and has a special interest in deep house, Afro and deep electronic house music. The brother to three siblings said he has always had a passion for music. “It was during my early teen years when I developed an immense love for music. “Music is far more powerful than language. Hence, I fell in love with it,”

he said. Apart from making music, Khuzwayo, who attended Gamalakhe Commercial High School, is doing an apprenticeship in electrical engineering at Esayidi TVET College in Boboyi. He also dreams of growing as a brand and getting to work with as many different, talented artists and producers as possible. “The journey has been full of ups and downs, as can be expected in the music industry. I have had problems with getting people to relate to the type of music I play, and to my brand. “Some South Coasters still call me DJ Mhlengi or Mhlengi the DJ. I’m also trying to find a balance between work and school,” he said. Apart from the challenges, Khuzwayo has also played at Eyadini Lounge in Umlazi, the South Coast Bike Festival and more. He is now working on releasing a new body of work in February. “From the project, people can expect to hear house music with touches of jazz-funk, soul and some original percussion sounds and rhythms of the South African culture,” he said.

100% RESULTS OR MONEY BACK RICH INDIAN WOMEN TESTIFIES HER SECRET OF SUCCESS!!

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.

ITS TIME TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION AND THE RIGHT CHOICE TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE. CALL BABA GASELA NOW ON 064 685 8648.

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.

After using the MAGIC WALLET for a month, l spoke to Baba GASELA and asked him to put R2 000 000 in my bedroom using his RATS or special SHORT BOYS which he promised and guaranteed me that I will get money before 9am the next day because the day l called him, his RATS and SHORT BOYS was already booked because he got lots of customers that he is helping to change their life but l was very surprised to see the money in my bedroom when l woke up without even noticing that the RATS came to put money in my bedroom and paid him back R500 000 with a smile on my face.

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 COULDN’T BELIEVE THIS CAN HAPPEN IN MY LIFE”

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.

Back seat head, leg and foot space is generous, the seat cushions lift up for extra packing space, minor storage facilities are good and the car rides comfortably.

OW there are six: Displacing Ford’s Ecosport Ambiente diesel as range price leader is a returning 1.5-litre petrol version with five-speed manual gearbox. Priced R500 cheaper than its predecessor, it’s a bargain. Others are mid-level Trend and top-shelf Titanium versions with six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. They use Ford’s award-winning 999 cc, three-cylinder, turbo-motor. The twin-clutch PowerShift “box” is no longer offered. It had unresolved issues despite multiple, ongoing fixes. There were recalls and class-action lawsuits. Things got ugly. It has been replaced by a six-speed transaxle developed in co-operation with GM in

2002. Its forte is old-school competence rather than new-world excitement, shifting smoothly and quietly and always in the right gear for prevailing circumstances. But it doesn’t kick down lustily on demand. It segues gently. Think Mom, not Wonder Woman. On a long trip, it delivered what was expected but no more. Basically satisfied yet mildly disappointed, we wished things could have been different. Let’s look at the positives. Two models out of six offer automatic transmission for those bumper-to-bumper traffic jams. Prior to the recent facelift and realignment you could only have a/t in Titanium specs, and with the above-mentioned 1500 cc petrol motor. It’s now available in Trend and Titanium levels, powered by the one-litre turbo that’s stronger, punchier and has output curves well-suited to the job. Our test car was a 1.0T Trend automatic. Its body has grown, now 315 mm longer for more front and rear legroom. Although 20 mm lower, ground clearance increased

The SA Women’s Masters, which is the second oldest professional women’s golf tournament in South Africa, is steadily contributing to the transformation of women’s golf. In 2018, the WPGA-sanctioned, Sunshine Ladies Tour event drew 38 international entries and included players such as Nobuhle Dlamini (Swaziland), Kajal Mistry, Zethu Myeki, Yolande Duma, Siviwe Duma (South Africa), Flavia Namakula (Uganda) and Leslie Grandet (Madagascar). The tournament has a history of growing young talent and always reserves entries for top South African amateur golfers. These players compete for the Sally Little Trophy for the leading amateur. Golfing legend Sally Little was the first golfer to win the SA Women’s Masters in 1996. The SA Women’s Masters is open to all women golf professionals, both local and international, and all amateur women golfers with a handicap of six or less. The tournament is played over three rounds of strokeplay, with 18 holes played per day, preceded by a Pro-Am on the Wednesday. San Lameer has a rich golfing pedigree, having proudly hosted the South African Women’s Open for five years until 2017, and having been the first golfing

The event will also present the Grid of Light, a charity network of organisations such as the Booth Trust, the Chester Williams Foundation, Heritage Protection Group, Pro-Active SA and Greendoor Diepsloot, a shelter and councilling centre for victims of rape and domestic violence.

Season opens with whoppers FEVER REPORTER

T

WO South Coast fishermen had plenty to smile about recently when they welcomed the new fishing season by reeling in sizeable fish. Mike du Toit landed a bomber of a tuna, weighing at 55 kg, on his boat Tuna.Com. He

said the water in the deep was very green and had a temperature of 21 degrees Celsius. The season started late with bad weather and big surf conditions. Hendrik du Toit, also on the boat Tuna.Com, caught a jaw-dropping dorado weighing nine kilogrames. Tuna and dorado are the targeted fish for the season.

The dorados are finaly here! Hendrik du Toit (left) shows off the ninekilogram dorado that he caught on January 2. PHOTOS: SUPPLIED
