Prostitution in Marburg, a ‘catch 22’ situation OMEGA MOAGI >>omega.moagi@media24.com

T

HE ward councillor for Ward 17 in Marburg, Ajith Rajaram, has spoken out about prostitution in the area, explaining that the issue lies in the fact that there is a demand for the trade. Rajaram’s comments follow recent complaints from residents of the reemergence of prostitution in the area and they are calling for more long-term solutions. Rajaram said the issue is a catch 22 situation because although law enforcers arrest suspects, they return to the streets upon release. “Its is very complex because the prostitutes are actually supported by the prominent businesspeople and respect-

able members of our community, and hence they return to trading even after being arrested,” said Rajaram. He said the community previously came together in conjunction with local security companies and formed an informal neighbourhood watch forum that assisted in arresting suspects, and this will be resumed if needed. Prostitution on the residential streets of Marburg has been a source of much contention for at least two years and while a combination of efforts by SAPS, protection services and community based activism have assisted in curbing activities in the area slightly, it seems prostitution has since resumed. In a Fever article of August 27, 2015, residents in the area said they were concerned by the rife prostitution in the area.

Last year, during a community meeting reported on in the Fever of April 6, 2017, residents pledged to take action against the issue. On Monday, the Fever visited the area and found sex workers in the street. The girls were aged at about 16 to 18 years old and lurk in the streets in provocative clothes to entice customers. According to local residents, peak time for the prostitutes is in the afternoons as workers and business owners knock off, however, the trade commences throughout the day. In the same area, a high school as well as a pre-school are exposed. The Ray Nkonyeni Municipality’s newly promulgated municipal by-laws have provided a clause for addressing the issue of prostitution within the mu-

nicipality. While addressing a media briefing at the introduction of the by-laws at the RNM council chambers earlier this year, municipal manager Max Mbili said prostitution hot spots would be targeted. He said that in attempts to curb the social ill, efforts would be made to catch, name and shame both the traders and the buyers. “The issue of prostitution is something that the municipality wants to deal with. We also want to create a discourse with all the people involved in order to find out how they think this issue can be resolved in the long term,” said Mbili. If people would like to get involved in the neighbourhood watch forum to stop prostitution, they can contact Ajith Rajaram at 082 446 7465.

Five injured in accident FIVE people were injured in an accident that occurred on the N2 in Paddock over the weekend. KwaZulu Private Ambulance paramedics received a call for help after the accident occurred at about 9 pm. Spokesperson Belinda Catchpole said it was established that the driv-

Man arrested for stolen copper cables T

WO nylon bags containing rolls of copper cables weighing 117 kg were among the large quantities of cables and cable casing recovered by the Scottburgh Task Team near the Sezela soccer field on Monday. A 37-year-old suspect from Malangeni has been arrested and detained pending his appearance in the Scottburgh Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday. Police spokesperson Captain Vincent Pandarum said the cables recovered possibly belong to Eskom and Telkom. He confirmed that Eskom will be among the service providers that will be invited to examine the copper ca-

bles and confirm if it is their property. “Around midday on Monday, task team leader Detective Constable Cliffy Pillay and his team — Constables Mthokozisi Mkhize, Lindelihle Cele and Lungisani Nyuswa — followed up on information received and carried out a search in the dense bushes near the river and found the stolen copper cables. The sale of copper cables, which draws high returns in the scrap metal trade, has proven to be a lucrative business for many in the area,”said Pandurum. He said it was evident that the spot has been in use for a while to burn the casings off the copper cables and due to

the fact that it is off the beaten track, it is difficult for anyone to see what the perpetrators are up to. “Scottburgh and the neighbouring areas have experienced a number of electricity outages that can be attributed to the theft of copper cables. The public is encouraged to pass on any information to the police regarding the theft of copper cables, copper pipes and other metal that is stolen and sold as scrap metal.” “The arrested man faces charges of being in possession of suspected stolen property and destruction of essential infrastructure under the Criminal Matters Amendment Act.” — Supplied.

Stolen vehicles recovered A BAKKIE and a minibus have been recovered by a private individual, Hendrick Ludick, over the weekend. The recovered bakkie was stolen in Brighton Beach last week and was recovered in Mgai area. Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Zandra Wiid said Ludick utilised a helicopter and police members from Port Shepstone K9 Unit and 10111 response, to assist him on the ground when recovering the vehicle. “Two adult male suspects were found with the vehicle and they were arrested. The suspects were charged for theft of [the] motor vehicle and appeared in a Durban court on Monday.” Wiid said again on Sunday Ludick called

Road in Marburg still not fixed PRECIOUS GUMEDE >>precious.gumede@media24.com

A

BACK road in Marburg, Berg Road, is yet to be repaired despite numerous complaints by the road users in the past two years. The South Coast Fever has sent a number of inquiries to Ray Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM), since February, questioning the maintenance of the road, but to date received no response. The road has potholes and is dug up on one side which makes it difficult for two vehicles to pass. Patsy Chetty, who works in a business on the road, said the municipality responded to an e-mail she sent in June last year complaining about the condition of the road. The response from the municipality was that there was not enough funding to repair the road. “ However, it will be included

in the financial budget for 2018/19. Chetty said the state of the road has gone from bad to worse and has become a danger for motorists. “After my e-mail was sent to the Fever, I had noticed that some road works had started such as the paving of one side of road, but it stopped. “For most of the way, only one car can pass while the other has to wait.Last year the municipality said that they did not have money in the budget. What will their excuse be for 2018?” questioned Chetty. On Monday, the Fever contacted the municipality to confirm if a plan is in place to fix the road, but no response was received.

Park Rynie labour office ‘a mess’ OMEGA MOAGI >>omega.moagi@media24.com

T

HE offices of the Department of Labour in Park Rynie are in a “bad state” with complaints of no electricity, unflushable toilets, general uncleanliness and slow service, this according to local resident Sue Hefferman Laubscher. She said the situation was “demotivating”. “The conditions are appalling. There is always filth everywhere and people are constantly turned away when seeking assistance because apparently they only assist five people a day,” said Hefferman Laubscher. Ward councillor for the area, Ed Baptie, said in his attempts to resolve the issue has been sent back and forth between the Department of

Public Works and the Department of Labour, with “no one wanting to take responsibility”. “According to the Department of Public Works the building is owned by them but they have leased it out to the Department of Labour and therefore they are responsible for maintenance of the building,” said Baptie. “The Department of Labour tells me it is Public Works that is responsible and unfortunately, I have not been able to obtain a copy of the lease agreement between the two to give clarity on the matter. I have, however, escalated the matter to provincial level and will continue knocking on every door until we get results because this has been going on for too long,” said Baptie.

Spokesperson for the Department of Labour Lungelo Mkamba said they were “engaging” with the Department of Public Works. “The electricity bill has been settled and power should resume. We are currently in the process of procuring cleaning services to ensure that the workplace is clean and tidy,” said Mkamba. “Questions about the state of the building or its maintenance thereof, should be sent to the Department of Public Works which is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of government buildings. We have already engaged them in this regard to assist us,” said Mkamba. The Department of Public Works did not respond to requests for comment at the time of going to print.

Wage and benefits protest continues PRECIOUS GUMEDE

March 22, 2018

Knoxgore traffic lights almost up

>>precious.gumede@media24.com

F

INANCIAL dissatisfaction among Idwala Carbonates staff and the employer has led to workers protesting for more that two weeks. Protestors claim that the employer has failed to address their demands pertaining to wage negotiations. On Thursday last week, workers and the National Union of Mine workers (Num) leadership gathered in Murchison to discuss a way forward. Regional secretary Muzi Zakwe said it was top priority that the union meets with the employer before the strike escalates. He said every mining company has issues with the community and to avoid the community from joining the strike and raising their own concerns, a meeting should be arranged as soon as possible. THE DEMANDS • A wage increment — eight percent increase or 15% of the monthly remuneration. • A housing allowance — R4 000 a month instead of the R1 000 they are give. • A shift allowance — R1 300 per month for all shift workers. He said that according to staff, all these demands were meant to be implemented at the beginning of January, however, no agreement had been reached. “They [employees] alleged that when the majority of staff were employed at Idwala, they were on temporary contracts. When the contracts were renewed and the they were permanently employed, they noticed that there were wage differences

Those receiving higher salaries were with the union known as the United Association of South Africa (UASA Trade Union),” said Zakwe. He said the main issues is that the workers cannot get proper housing for their families. “The housing allowance is not enough for them to get houses, neither does it give them an option to apply for home loans. The workers are earning too much to qualify for RDP houses, yet too little to get the well-deserved home loans from banks,” he said.

Zakwe said at this point there is no progress and they are calling on other members of the union to lobby with them in the fight for what is right. Pam Lindsay, head of human resources at Idwala, did confirm the strike saying, Num members have gone on strike. She said the strike is continuing. “Regrettably, we reached a deadlock with our majority union during December 2017, relating to wage negotiations, and have not been able to resolve this issue with the union. “We are hopeful that we will resolve this situation shortly.” said Lindsay.

Stay safe during the holidays FROM March 20, the first school holidays of the year coupled with an extra-long weekend, signal a busy time on South African roads. Travellers can be reassured that Netcare 911 is ready to provide emergency medical care where the need arises. Netcare 911’s Shalen Ramduth said from experience in previous years, this is busy time on the roads and unfortunately often leads to an increase in the number of tragic road accidents. Netcare 911 has bolstered its resources with ambulances, advanced life-support response vehicles and emergency care practitioners along the N3 highway between Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal during this holiday period. It is hoped that in addition to being ready to provide prompt emergency medical and rescue assistance to the public where needed, the high-visibility of the Netcare 911 team will help to keep road safety top-of-mind among road users. “Every motorist has a role to play in helping to make South Africa’s roads safer over this time by following reasonable safety precautions and displaying courteous driving behaviour. If we all take a few simple measures when travelling, it is possible to reduce the number of accidents and ensure that more people reach their destinations without incident and return safely after their holidays.” said Ramduth. Two major contributors to road accidents are driver fatigue and drunk driving, which are preventable. He advised drivers to be mentally alert and in good physical condition when embarking on road trips, “Drivers should stop at least every two hours for a break to refresh themselves so that they do not become fatigued, which can impair driving ability. Drinking and driving is highly irresponsible and we urge the public not to drive while intoxicated or travel with a driver who is under the influence.” Ramduth said the most dangerous things about alcohol is that it can stimulate people to take unnecessary risks, without them realising that their judgment or co-ordination are impaired. “Alcohol often creates a sense of confidence, so people under the influence mistakenly believe that they are fully in control and able to drive.” Ramduth urged drivers to ensure their vehicles are roadworthy, equipped with a spare tyre, basic tools, a reflective triangle and a first aid kit. SAFETY TIPS: • always “buckle up”, ensuring the driver, passengers and children are wearing seat belts at all times; • get adequate sleep before setting off on your journey; • avoid drinking alcohol before and during the journey; • stop and take a break from driving at least every two hours; • if you are feeling tired, stop at a safe place and stretch your legs and wait for at least 10 minutes before getting back in the car, ensuring that you are properly refreshed, or take a nap if you are still tired; • keep the temperature in your car cool as a warmer interior encourages sleepiness; • make a point of checking blind spots and reading road conditions, watching out for potholes or a slippery surfaces in rainy weather, as well as oncoming and rear traffic. Do not simply keep your eye on the vehicle ahead of you. Also watch out specifically for pedestrians and cyclists near or on the road; • do not use your cellphone while driving, rather allow your passengers to SMS, tweet and take photographs for you; • ensure a safe following distance; and • stay calm and extend your following distance between erratic and aggressive drivers. “The importance of a first aid kit is often overlooked, sometimes the contents of the kits have expired. It is essential to check the contents of your first aid kit regularly and replace any expired or damaged contents,” he said. Checklist of items for your first aid kit • Sterile medical gloves • Cotton wool • A digital thermometer • Two medical eye patches • Burnshield dressing • A variety of bandages and plasters as well as sterile gauze • Antiseptic wipes and liquid • A space blanket • Safety pins, scissors, tweezers • Paracetamol tablets and syrup “Before setting off on your journey, it is advisable to do some research to obtain current information about the route that you are planning to take, including any roadworks or detours you will encounter. Getting lost or disorientated, especially when tired, can cause a driver to become distracted which could lead to an accident.” WHEN REPORTING AN EMERGENCY • Dial 082 911 and when the call is answered say “I have an emergency”. • Give your name and contact number clearly so that we will be made to contact you. • State whether it is a life-threatening situation and be specific about the nature of your emergency. • Give your exact location where the individuals requiring assistance can be found. — Supplied.

GROUP of mechanics trading on Watterson Street in Marburg were forcefully removed by Ray Nkonyeni Municipality Protection Services last week due to complaints, allegedly from local residents. The mechanics who said they had been trading in the area for decades, however dissented to the removal

with the municipality and were reinstated within two days. One of the traders, Njabulo Shabane from Oshabeni, said he had been trading in the area for over 10 years and this job was his only source of income. “With my mother, siblings and nephews and nieces I have a family of nine depending on my work here as a mechanic. “If they chase us away from here, how do they expect us to feed our

families?” said Shabane. Another trader, Vusi Makhanya said he did not believe they bothered many of the residents with their business. “We are just trying to make an honest living. “At least we are not stealing anything from anyone so I don’t see why people would have an issue with us working here. We really mean no harm. “Also I don’t think it’s everyone

that complained - maybe just a few people - but it should all be sorted out when the new place [is constructed],” said Makhanya. He said they were told by Protection Services that they could trade in the area until the construction of a suitable shelter which the municipality is building for them is completed. However a resident in the area who asked not to be named said the traders were ruining their residential area.

“We don’t have a problem with people doing business, but now the place that they work in is filthy and they spill oil and other chemicals on to the road. “All these things have an environmental impact. “Also our properties are devalued because of the trading on the street,” said the resident. Ray Nkonyeni Municipality did not respond to requests for comments at the time of going to press.

Ugu District hosts ECD summit CLLR MA CHILLIZA UGU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY MAYOR UGU District Municipality will play host to the Early Childhood Development (ECD) Summit organised by the National Development Agency (NDA). The two-day event will be held at the Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre from today (Thursday) and will end tomorrow. The summit will be held under the theme “Good Governance for Improved ECD Services and Sustainability.” The summit will be attended by government structures of ECDs including forums, special programmes units from municipalities, government officials directly responsible for ECDs and business structures.

According to the NDA, the main objective of the summit is to promote good governance as an integral part of running an ECD. This follows a call by the South African President Cyril Ramaphosa that government intends to strengthen the ECD sector to improve education and break the intergenerational cycle of poverty. Today, the summit will start with a plenary which will culminate into break-away sessions later on the day. Four thematic areas will be discussed and wrapped up the following day at the plenary. Political leadership from Ugu district, KwaZulu-Natal MEC for the Department of Social Development Weziwe Thusi and NDA CEO Thamo Mzobe are among the invited guests.

TOURISM 360 JUSTIN MACKRORY: CEO SOUTH COAST TOURISM

More than meets the eye JUSTIN MACKRORY CEO SOUTH COAST TOURISM MANY perceive Gamalakhe as a fairly congested urban area without much to offer the tourist, but after field analysis last week, our team has uncovered a number of sites that in future could well be an integral part of our tourism marketing mix. We found religious sites, an outdoor entertainment area, green belt areas with natural parkland that could be used for eco- trails. Plans are afoot to develop a cultural centre based on the original clans that lived in the area which could be a great introduction to the township which has a story to tell. At “Tin Town” for example locals have been offering time travel experiences which is an

exemplar of Gamalakhe’s heritage. Up on the high escarpment there are superb view sites over the Uvongo River Valley and the Esayidi TVET College with its own tourism and hospitality school is an ideal launch pad for future reception and hosting of groups. Did you know they have 162 beds for overnight accommodation? Down in the valley lies a unique and very creative entertainment centre with all sorts of quirky outdoor art and colourful structures much akin to what one finds at the popular NieuBethesda in the Karoo- this I believe will develop into a unique must see attraction on the South Coast. With the Ugu Sport and Leisure Centre at its entry and the Gamalakhe Stadium opportunity for events and sports competition also arises.

The town has its fair share of homestays, taverns and commemorative sites and all this coupled with the warm vibrancy of its people establishes a basis on which to develop tourism and leisure in the area. When we started our surveys, I was concerned that there may be little to write home about, however after a full morning plotting the spots, taking photos, talking to people with much local knowledge and finding some real gems, there is in fact a case for more tourism activity there. Oh and we found a little golf course up on the plateau - but that is a great story for another day. The more we investigate our hinterland, the more it reveals. It’s just a matter of keeping one’s eyes open and taking to the open roads.

For nervous people and foreigners AMIL UMRAW

SOUTH Africa’s decision to begin a process to look at land expropriation without compensation comes with many caveats, and does not mean all white farmers will arbitrarily be stripped of their land and assets. The issue has again come to the fore after Australia’s minister for immigration and border protection, Peter Dutton, reportedly said that his department is considering fast-tracking the visas of white SA farmers looking to emigrate to Australia, because the group deserves “special attention” owing to the “horrific circumstances” they face at home. He was referring to Parliament’s decision to review the Constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation, as well as concerns over a perceived spike in racial attacks on and murders of white farmers. But the decision to review the Constitution comes with clauses. This is what you need to know. In December last year, when the ANC met for its na-

tional conference, it passed a resolution to begin a process of reviewing the Constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation. The party, however, wants to expedite this process without it taking a toll on the economy, food security and agricultural production. Last month, the EFF brought a draft resolution to Parliament to argue for an ad-hoc committee to be set up by the National Assembly to expedite the process. The party’s debate centred on the current land-reform programme, which it argued has been “fraught with difficulties” since its inception in 1994. Land expropriation is a contested issue in the public discourse; on one hand it serves to address the injustices of the past and, on the other, it is an arguably populist move called to rally voters. Many don’t believe land expropriation without compensation is the right move for SA. Some say the ANC’s resolution is not guided by fact or proper preparation. The agricultural sector is in two minds, with some organi-

sations calling for clarity before taking sides. A highly anticipated land audit report from the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform found that black South Africans, who make up 79% of the population, only own 1,2% of the total rural land and seven percent of formal property in cities. But the report, which was released last year, did not make findings on agricultural land and its distribution. However, AgriSA in its own land audit, found black citizens own 26,7% of agricultural ground and control more than 46% of SA’s agricultural potential. The report found that white farmers’ ownership of agricultural ground declined from 85,1% in 1994 to 73,3% in 2016. South Africa’s parliamentary constitutional review committee has been charged with reviewing Section 25 of the Constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation, and is expected to report back to the National Assembly by the end of August. Section 25 states that property may be expropriated

only for “a public purpose or in the public interest”, and “subject to just and equitable compensation” — the amount of which, and the time and manner of payment, must be agreed to by the affected, or decided by a court. What the amendment seeks to do, is remove the “subject to compensation” bit. But what the ANC has not done, is develop a land-reform policy that considers “just and equitable compensation” from any standpoint other than the “willing buyer, willing seller” principle. Several legal experts have pointed out that the two concepts are not the same. Under the current Constitution, the ANC could still craft legislation with its own definition of “just and equitable compensation” that does not comply with “willing buyer, willing seller”. If Section 25 is amended, there is still no guarantee that the state will make use of its expropriatory powers. — HuffPost SA. • Amil Umraw is the politics reporter at HuffPost SA.

respectively. The controversial family’s citizenship was previously awarded under unspecified “exceptional circumstances”, although it was reported in 2017 that the family did not meet the prescribed requirements. The director-general reiterated earlier this month that the decision to grant early naturalisation to the Guptas was consistent with their exceptional circumstances as owners of businesses that employed many people. Gigaba has now sought the advice of President Cyril Ramaphosa to revoke Ajay Gupta’s permanent residency. However, while he dithers on the Guptas, the lives of tens of thousands of people hang in the balance as a direct result of his department’s inefficient, uncaring and even illegal conduct. Right now, as the minister fights for his political survival, thousands of stories of wrongfully denied immigrants are playing out across the country. Stories such as that of the Mulowayis, a family from the Democratic Republic of Congo who have had to renounce their citizenship to their home country as per Home Affairs’ instructions, only to have their applications for South African citizenship denied for no discernible reason. One of the Mulowayis’ children is stateless, and according to Home Affairs, ineligible to become a citizen under current laws. Thousands of children of immigrants find themselves legally non-existent and will remain so until Home Affairs can show the leadership and efficiency to apply the law consistently and live up to its constitutional mandate. Until then, the Mulowayis parents, a doctor and a teacher, and thousands like them, will continue to be hampered in their efforts to contribute to our country. In a single court case, our firm is representing more than 400 applicants who simply lack the

knowledge of local law as well as the necessary resources to challenge what is in essence unlawful findings by the department. Compare that to a family that has reportedly stolen billions of rands meant for elevating millions of South African citizens out of poverty. Many immigrants qualify for temporary and permanent residency and citizenship, but still have to wait for years for their applications to be approved, for no apparent reason other than the DHA’s inefficiency. Our firm works with many of the frustrated foreigners who have jumped through every legal hoop to gain their residency, and as a rule don’t submit applications unless they comply and have a fair expectation of being approved. Yet, we still experience wildly inconsistent interpretations of the prevailing laws by Home Affairs officials. We urge the minister not to let his department undermine our nation’s prosperity. Home Affairs is compounding the misery of thousands of ordinary, hard-working immigrants who wish to contribute their skills and energy to the success and prosperity of our nation. Your focus should be on ensuring that your department can provide the essential service of enabling skilled migrants to enjoy the constitutional protections and privileges set out by the architects of our democracy. You need to force your department to adhere to its own laws, and to work tirelessly to serve the broader developmental agenda as set out by our national leadership. You need to make sure the DHA lives up to its slogan: “We care”. Right now, you are failing, and the DHA certainly doesn’t create the impression that it cares. • Stefanie de Saude-Darbandi is founder and director of De Saude Attorneys.

THE fallout from Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba awarding citizenship status to the controversial Gupta family is but a small taste of the misery that his department inflicts on thousands upon thousands of immigrants and residents every year. And while there is a concerted effort to correct the perceived wrongs regarding this single family, the

truth is that Home Affairs fails spectacularly in its constitutional duties on a consistent basis, negatively affecting tens of thousands of law-abiding people every year. In an extraordinary few days, the nation saw Gigaba first deny that Atul and Ajay Gupta were granted South African citizenship, before Home Affairs director-general Mkuseli Apleni clarified that both brothers had been naturalised as far back as 2002 and 2006,

Die slagting op ons paaie – wie’s volgende? JOHAN PRETORIUS

‘n WEEK gelede het die uwe onderweg

Durban toe op die N2 gesit en dink aan minstens twee dele van hierdie snelweg tussen Port Shepstone en Hibberdene waar daar gereeld noodlottige ongelukke voorkom. Albei hierdie dele van die pad is opdraend of afdraend, afhangend uit watter rigting jy kom, en in albei is daar een baan aan die afdraende kant van die pad, met ‘n dubbelbaan aan teenoorgestelde rigting, met ‘n ononderbroke sperstreep vir die dubbelbaan, maar stippellyne op plekke in die enkelbaan sodat voertuie kan verbysteek wanneer daar nie aankomende verkeer is nie. Myns insiens is dit hier waar die risiko is. Motoriste in die enkelbaan vergeet dat die baan waarin hulle beweeg wanneer hulle besluit om verby te steek, eintlik ‘n tweede baan vir aankomende verkeer is, beweeg agter die voertuig voor hulle uit, en reg in die pad van ‘n aankomende voertuig wat hulle om die een of ander rede nie gesien het nie. Ongelukkig is daar ‘n belangrike bykomende faktor in hierdie reeds gevaarlike deel van die snelweg, wat die risiko verder verhoog. Haastige motoriste en bestuurders van afleweringsvoertuie steur hulle nie aan die spoedbeperkings of sperstrepe en ander padtekens nie. Tydens hierdie einste rit Durban toe het ‘n spoggerige Jaguar met donker vensters teen minstens 170 kilometer per uur, oor ‘n sperstreep, by my verbygejaag, dieselfde met motoriste voor my gedoen, die laaste keer ‘n aankomende vragmotor rakelings gemis en in die verte verdwyn. Wanneer ‘n mens Kokstad toe ry, en soos ons almal weet, is daar seksies van hierdie roete wat uiters gevaarlik is,veral naby Ingeli, sien jy dieselfde blatante

STILTETYD:

Uitdagings OOM KALLIE JY kry mense wat hou van uitdagings, ander deins terug van uitdagings. Joshua J. Marine word aangehaal as sou hy gesê het: “Challenges are what makes life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” Wanneer mense met ’n probleem gekonfronteer word, kan jy bedreig voel en wil vlug, of vasstaan en die probleem vierkantig in die gesig staar. Jy kan die probleem sien as ’n uitdaging of oorweldig voel deur die probleem en dan ’n slagoffer-mentaliteit inneem. Jy kan die uitdaging ook sien as ’n groeigeleentheid. M.a.w. as iets wat tot jou voordeel is en nie teen jou

verontagsaming van padtekens, sowel langs die pad as op die teer,met minibustaxis voor in die koor. Mense met kragtige motors jaag soos besetenes. My pa het altyd gesê die wet van gemiddeldes is ‘n ongenaakbare realiteit. Dis waarom ‘n rugbyspan, wat ‘n reeks wedstryde op ‘n streep gewen het, skielik en uit die bloute uit verloor teen ‘n baie swakker span. Of ‘n waaghals wat drie-duisend vryval-valskermspronge veilig uitvoer, op ‘n dag onverklaarbaar sterf omdat daar iewers iets fout gegaan het.Dieselfde met ons gedrag op die paaie. Indien jy aanhou om die noodlot te tart, skop die wet van gemiddeldes in en ‘n ongeluk gebeur. S oms met mindere gevolge,en soms in gruwelike omstandighede met mense wat doodbrand. Die tragedie is bestuurders wat die ongelukke veroorsaak, sterf nie alleen nie. Hulle neem wetsgehoorsame en versigtige bestuurders, hul passasiers en somtyds hele gesinne saam met hulle die doderyk in. Vriende en familielede van die oorledenes word in rou gelaat, met die vraag: ‘Hoe op aarde kon so iets met ons mense gebeur?’ Die realiteit is ons lees en hoor van noodlottige ongelukke, ook hier op die Suidkus, sien die name van die oorledenes, sê vir ons self ‘ai, hoe verskriklik tog, die arme mense’ of ‘wat het nou weer daar gebeur?’ Dan gaan ons aan met ons lewens. Totdat ‘n familielid of lede, ‘n goeie vriend of vriende, of ‘n sakekennis skielik in ‘n motorongeluk sterf. Dan word ons tot stilstand geruk. Soos met die uwe gebeur het ‘n week na bg. rit na Durban. ‘n Ugu-amptenaar wat ek dertien jaar lank geken en gereeld as joernalis mee kontak gehad het, het juis op een van die gevaarlike dele

van die N2 voor Hibberdene in ‘n gruongeluk saam met drie ander gesterf. Sipho Khuzwayo was alleen in sy motor, en die drie mense in die bakkie was toe hierdie berig geskryf is, nog nie uitgeken nie. Almal het verkool. ‘n Groot persoonlike skok. Die Paasnaweek lê voor, en talle mense gaan sterf. Dis ‘n feit. Die vraag is net wie. Dalk jou familie wat uit Johannesburg kom kuier? Jou eie kind wat saam met vriende Kruger-wildtuin toe gaan? DIE OOGLOPENDE VRAAG IS: Wat kan ons doen om hierdie slagting te keer? My beskeie mening is bestuurders moet hul eie ingesteldheid en gedrag drasties aanpas. TWEEDENS: Die verskillende owerhede moet hul werk doen, die wet en pad-ordonnansies genadeloos toepas, toesien dat almal wat voertuie bestuur behoorlik opgelei is, voertuie moet streng vir padwaardigheid getoets word, en dronkbestuurders se rybewyse moet vir minstens ses maande opgeskort wort. DERDENS: Paaie moet behoorlik onderhou, gemoderniseer en gevaarlike dele uitgeskakel word. En vierdens moet die vraag gevra word waarom motors wat jaar na jaar alhoe kragtiger en vinniger word, en gebou is vir die snelweë van Eerste Wêreldse lande, op lande met hoofsaaklik Derde Wêreldse paaie soos Suid-Afrika, toegelaat word sonder die een of ander beperking of voorwaardes? In ‘n gesprek oor hierdie onderwerp met ‘n goeie vriend het ek hom van my bg. beskeie mening vertel. Hy het my meewarig aangekyk met die woorde: “waarom wens jy nie liewer Ugu se watervoorsiening word wêreldklas nie? Dit het ‘n beter kans op welslae”.

O K om

werk nie. In Matteus 17:14-21 doen so ’n groeigeleentheid hom voor aan die dissipels. ’n Man met ‘n geestelik versteurde kind kom val voor Jesus en smeek dat Hy die kind sal gesond maak. Die dissipels kon die kind nie gesond maak nie. Daar was meer aan die gang in sy lewe en die feit dat Jesus ‘n bose gees uit hom werp vertel vir ons dat in hierdie spesifieke geval die bose ’n rol gespeel het in sy psigiese toestand. Dis nie altyd so nie, maar hier wel. Die dissipels is egter magteloos om iets aan hierdie situasie te doen. Die uitdaging is vir hulle te groot. Ons verstaan hulle dilemma want ons het almal al met situasies te make gehad wat bo ons vuurmaakplek is. Nie so vir Jesus nie.

allie

Jesus spreek die bose gees aan en die kind word gesond. Die dissipels wou weet waarom hulle nie die saak kon beredder nie. Jesus sê dat hulle geloof te klein was. Geloof so groot soos ’n mosterdsaadjie kan uitdagings so groot soos berge verskuif. Dit gaan egter nie oor hoeveel geloof ek in myself het nie. Geloof is altyd op Christus gerig. Hoe meer ek op Hom fokus, hoe meer verwag ek van Hom. Hoe minder ek egter na Jesus opsien, hoe minder vertrou ek Hom om die uitdagings wat voor my inskuif die hoof te bied. As jy die maan wil sien, is die grootte van die venster waardeur jy kyk nie belangrik nie, maar die rigting waarheen jy kyk. Let op Jesus en staar jou uitdagings in die gesig!

WOUTER WILLEMSE HET ons verlede naweek hier in die Watergat ‘n spanningvolle tyd beleef! Hoewel ons gehoop het die Bulls sou hulle wedstryd Vrydag kon wen, was dit nie die einde van die wêreld nie,maar toe die Sharks Saterdag teen die Brumbies gaan staan en verloor, was die gemoedere onstuimig en die manne, om die minste te sê, kwaad. Maar belangriker, teleurgesteld, omdat hierdie span waarvan ons vanjaar soveel verwag het vanjaar, net nie in rat kan kom nie. Later het ons almal weer gewonder of die probeem nie by die afrigting lê nie. As daar een Suid-Afrikaanse span is wat ver benede sy potensiaal speel, is dit die Sharks. Later die middag het die senuwees weer gelol, al het die Stormers ons weer hoop gegee. Die spook van die vorige naweek, toe wat veronderstel is om die land se beste span te wees, ‘n wedstryd in die doodsnikke weggegooi het, het weer geloop. Hoe is dit moontlik dat die Sunwolves, wel baie verbeter het, die Johannesburgers so opgekeil en amper gewen het? Dit maak net nie sin nie. As die Lions nie vinnig verbeter nie, gaan die Jaguares hulle hierdie naweek verflenter. Dalk begin Johan Ackerman se afwesigheid uiteindelik sy tol eis. Pottie was weer in ‘n toestand, en ek was gereed om hom ongevalle toe te neem met ‘n hart-aanval. Gelukkig het ‘n blou pilletjie, die een vir die senuwees, die ding gedoen. Genoeg van die rugby. Die ander onderwerp van bespreking wat ons warm onder die kraag gehad het was ‘n berig wat ons Saterdag op een van die nuuskanale gesien het. Ene Carl Niehaus, nou die (self-aangestelde?) woordvoerder van die sogenaamde

Umkhonto We Sizwe-veterane, wat op sy gewone breedsprakerige en met perfekte Afrikaans- manier verklaar het oud-President Zuma sal nie ‘n regverdige verhoor in SuidAfrika kry nie. Die redes? Die “dekadelange persoonlike en venynige veldtog wat die hoofstroommedia teen kameraad Zuma gevoer het. Die Suid-Afrikaanse publiek, insluitende ons regters, is gebombardeer met negatiewe publisiteit, karaktermoord en boendoehowe wat kameraad Zuma reeds skuldig bevind het.” Gelukkig, het die heer Niehaus verklaar, was hy en sy kamerade as ‘op die slagveld geharde vryheidsvegters ’, en weet hulle wat ware lojaliteit beteken. Bogenoemde komende van iemand wat, nadat hy agt jaar in die tronk was weens subversiewe bedrywighede, en hierna Nelson Mandela se woordvoerder, ambassadeur in Nederland en Parlementslid was, nege jaar lank moes gaan ‘wegkruip’. Hy het onder meer erken het hy het bedrog gepleeg,en die media het berig hy skuld mense miljoene rand. Ander beskuldigings teen hom was dat hy handtekeninge vervals en gelieg het oor sy ma se dood om geld te bekom. Skielik ontpop hy verlede jaar in ‘n eendejagter-kamoefleerpak as Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma se woordvoerder, en klou hy steeds verbete vas aan Jacob Zuma. Besef die man, en die ANC self, nie dat Niehaus ‘n kolossale verleentheid is nie? Gelukkig gaan hy weer soos ‘n stuk beton sink, hierdie keer saam met Zuma. Iets om die swaarmoedigheid te verdryf: Meraai loop straataf met ´n matras op haar kop. Gatiep: Wa gat djy met djou furniture? Meraai: Hierie is g´n office furniture nie. Dis my workshop!

These are businesses are within the food, fashion and craft industries,” said Madikizela.

Craft beer fest goes down well THE Umthunzi Hotel and Conference hosted their fourth annual Craft Beer, Food and Wine Festival on Friday, March 16. There was an assortment of alcoholic beverages,which festival goers were able to sample, fine dining and entertainment.

The event was a sell-out and all who attended left with knowledge about their favourite beverages. Hotel staff made it their main priority to ensure all guests were well taken care of. Regular festival goer Peter van Dyk said: “It’s such an exciting experience to learn exactly how to enjoy a whisky. “There are so many elements connected to your senses that make enjoying whisky an art.”

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

My name is Michelle Moodley and I am 34 years old living in Port Shepstone, KZN, 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

My name is Nontlahla Jalubane, a resident in Bizana, Eastern Cape my contact 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 repossed 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 Michelle Moodley, an Indian woman from Port Shepstone, who had serious financial problems all because of Fake Doctors & Herbalists. I called Michelle Moodley 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 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. I am Rajesh Pillay from Shelly Beach, KZN and my cell number is 078 851 3124. 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. Now am happy and successful again and all my businesses I managed to reopen them and I bought back everything that I lost in my financial crisis time and now I am financially stable with my family because am also using the LUCKY WALLET that brings R100 000 each and every day and am paying him back R300 000 from the R700 000 that am getting every week without any rules, instructions or any effects from the money am getting from the lucky wallet.

My name is Akhona Shazi from Margate, KZN and my cell is 083 402 2427 but now live in Umhlanga in Durban because of business and properties that l have that Baba Gasela helped me to get through his wonderful miracles. It all started when I left Margate to come to Durban in order to continue my small restaurant business. that l had, hoping to get successful after so many years in Margate without success or even a small change on my business until the 3rd January when l got the Fever Newspaper for the customers to read while waiting for their orders in the restaurant. I was very surprised to read the testimonies for lots of people thanking and praising BABA GASELA or the miracles he had done to them and their families for changing their lives mainly the story of Michelle Moodley, a rich Indian Woman who testifies about the SHORT BOYS who put R1 500 000 in her account within 4 hrs and pay BABA GASELA R400 000 without any problems from the bank. l couldn’t waste time but to call her first which she promise and guarantee me that BABA GASELA is the only herbalist or doctor who can help me change my financial problems in life and also to boost my restaurant business until l called him and ordered the MAGIC WALLET which is helping me to boost my business by getting R100 000 each and every day and pay him back R300 000 from the R700 000 that l get every 7 days (a week). 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. As l was sure that my financial problems were totally over. l am a happy woman now because of the miracles that happened to me in 2018. through Baba GASELA as l invested the money by opening different businesses in Durban and Port Shepstone. To all the business people and everyone who got financial problems but you have tried your best for your business to get successful or if you have been trying different ways to get success in your life including using different Herbalists, Sangomas and Doctors but it never works and just left you in a bigger problem than before, l promise you all that EVERY SECOND YOU WILL TALK WITH BABA GASELA BRINGS A FRESH BEGINNING AND EVERY MINUTE HOLDS A NEW PROMISE OF CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE.

After 3 days I received a call from a woman in Port Shepstone about BABA GASELA who had helped her during her financial difficulty using the SHORT BOYS to put R2 000 000 in her bank account. within 4 hours she had the money and paid him 25% from that money.

HPV vaccinations in primary schools underway OMEGA MOAGI >>omega.moagi@media24.com

T

HE Department of Health nationally is currently undergoing Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccinations for sexually naive primary school girls nine years and older, in order to prevent cervical cancer. Dose one of the campaign started from February 28 and ends on March 23 and dose two of the campaign commences on August 7 and ends on September 14. According to the department, the esti-

mated number of girls vaccinated was about 500 000 in 18 000 public schools. Spokesperson for the Department of Health Agiza Hlongwane said the vaccinations were the department’s way of making long-term savings and addressing health inequalities. “The first dose will be given to all ordinary public primary schools, targeting Grade 4 girl pupils, nine years and older, and all 11 districts are targeted. The campaign also administers to all special schools targeting girl pupils aged nine years old going on to 10

years,” said Hlongwane. “During the second round, Grade 4 girl pupils who were given their first dose during February/March, will be administered with their second dose of HPV Vaccine. Also, those Grade 4 girl pupils who were given their first dose during the second round last year, will be given their second dose,” said Hlongwane adding that vaccines would only be given if they have a signed consent form. Some parents have, however, raised concerns about the side effects of the vaccines.

Some common side effects include pain, redness and/or swelling at the site of injection. Other more severe side effects are anaphylactic [allergic] reactions to the vaccine. Gynaecologist and obstetrician at Netcare Margate Dr Shavershree Govender said the symptoms of side effects occur after around four in five vaccinations but are temporary and show that the immune system is responding to the vaccination and can be treated with a cold pack or paracetamol . “For every million doses of the vaccine given, there are only around three allergic re-

March 22, 2018

actions. This is similar to rates for other vaccines given to children and teens.” She said allergic reactions normally happen within 10 minutes of having the injection, usually if you’re allergic to an ingredient in the vaccine, such as yeast. “If an allergic reaction does occur, it can be treated quickly and successfully, every immunisation nurse is trained and equipped to deal with such a reaction,” said Dr Govender adding that it was important to report any reactions immediately. “I know that parents are very quick to want to google and find out about all these things that are being said about the vaccine all over the world. However, it is important to understand that we are living in a third world country where cases of cervical cancer are much higher than in first world countries like the U.S. and other countries. “So a vaccine that can help prevent the one of the leading causes of cervical cancer is in many ways a miracle for a country like ours,” said Dr. Govender.

Pupils become money savvy OVER 100 pupils from rural schools in Bulwer, Estcourt, Mandeni and Port Shepstone got to grips with money matters during Global Money Week (GMW) with the help of Ithala SOC Limited volunteers and employees. Starsaver is a national savings campaign, adopted as an annual programme championed by the South African Banking Association of South Africa and the broader financial sector, with the aim of teaching children to save in order to foster a culture of savings. The programme highlights the important role that volunteer bankers and financial sector professionals can play in educating our nation’s youth to become lifelong savers. South Africa is one of 137 countries that take part in the GMW programme aimed at

encouraging learners to be savvy about money, saving, becoming gainfully employed, improving livelihoods, wealth and becoming independent and responsible income generating citizens. Ithala SOC Limited’s Marketing and Communications Manager Sandile Xolo said it is vital for the youth to be empowered about money matters and saving as we work towards closing the inequality gaps; creating wealth and building a better future for them. “The pay-off line for GMW ‘Money Matters’ is spot-on because youngsters need to receive financial knowledge and develop skills to make smart money-related decisions throughout their lives,” he said. The programme was a hit with teachers and pupils alike. Dudu Shezi, a teacher from Mandlezizwe High School in Bulwer said she

was very happy that Ithala had come to teach pupils about financial literacy. “It is important that the pupils, especially Grade 12s, gain financial knowledge as they progress to university and begin their search for work,” she said. “They will be on their own. They need to make the right decisions when it comes to money and the programme offers them much guidance and support,” she said. Zenande Mathenjwa, a Grade 12 pupil from Mandlezizwe High School, also congratulated Ithala on this initiative. “These lessons prepare us for the real world; now we are equipped,” she said. Other participating schools were Ngonyama High School in Bulwer; Celukuphiwe Combined School in Estcourt; Gqumeni Primary School in Mandeni and S’dumile Primary School Port Shepstone.

Participating in the international drive is a small part of Ithala’s ongoing efforts to teach youngsters about saving and managing their money. This year, the organization plans to take the Starsaver campaign to a further 26 schools in KwaZulu-Natal. “At the schools, Ithala volunteers and

representatives’ talk to pupils about their needs and wants to address the “instant gratification” syndrome which exists among youth,” said Xolo. For more information visit www.myithala.co.za, call 031 366 2500 or follow #MoveToIthala. — Supplied.

2018 DRIVER LINE-UPS

What are the new F1 technical rules for 2018? After the technical rules revolution of 2017 – one that saw F1 cars become wider and faster – this season’s changes are relatively few in number. That doesn’t mean, of course, that they aren’t important – and some will be very obvious indeed…

MERCEDES Race drivers: Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas Engines: Mercedes

Goodbye to T-wings and shark fins When the teams considered the 2017 regulation changes, as always they were looking for what wasn’t written in the rules – ie the loopholes – as well as what was. The emergence of the extended, shark-finned engine covers, combined with the rather ungainly looking T-wings, was the result of one such loophole – but one that has been closed for 2018.

FERRARI Race drivers: Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen Engines: Ferrari

In 2017 Williams employed a double T-wing, while the likes of Force India (top drawing), Renault and McLaren took things further, experimenting with multiple planes. The purpose of the T-wing was to better direct airflow to the main rear wing, and in some cases to create a little additional downforce. The engine cover still features a fin of sorts, but nothing like the huge swathes of carbon fibre we saw in 2017.

RED BULL

Hello to halos The one change every F1 fan will immediately notice in 2018 is the introduction of the halo – the cockpit protection device designed to further improve driver safety in the event of an accident, and in particular to deflect debris away from the head.

Race drivers: Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon

The design of the halo, which we have seen teams trialling in practice and test sessions over the past two seasons, is not dissimilar to the original study carried out by Mercedes at the FIA’s request in 2015, with a central pillar supporting a ‘loop’ around the driver’s head.

Race drivers: Lance Stroll & Sergey Sirotkin

Race drivers: Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen Engines: Renault FORCE INDIA Engines: Mercedes WILLIAMS Engines: Mercedes RENAULT Race drivers: Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz

Though the halo is mandatory, with its core design dictated by the rules, there will be some scope for teams to modify its surface, so don’t be surprised to see a variety of small aero devices adorning this new addition.

Engines: Renault TORO ROSSO

The overall minimum weight of cars has gone up by 6kg to 734kg to compensate for the introduction of the halo, but it’s estimated that the actual impact of the device plus the mountings could be as much as 14kg, which will leave teams with less room to play with when it comes to performance ballast - and also put heavier drivers at a potential disadvantage...

Last year teams including Red Bull and Ferrari tried set-ups with a small link in the front suspension connected to the upright, believed to cleverly allow the ride height of the car - a key factor in aero performance - to be varied over the course of a lap depending on steering angle. The FIA has since decreed such systems will not be allowed.

Safety tips for driving at night A

LL motorists often have to drive at night at one time or another. Eric Sandmann from Arrive Alive offers some tips to make nocturnal trips safer. • CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE ABOUT NIGHT DRIVING, IT REALLY IS DANGEROUS Drivers don’t quite grasp how dangerous night driving is. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, road deaths occur three times more at night compared to those occurring during the day. Drivers cannot afford to be careless whenever they drive, and even more so at night. Some drivers are deceived into thinking that it’s much safer to drive at night because there’s less traffic. • LOOK AFTER YOUR EYES Eyes are the focal point of any safe driving, whether during the day

or night. The worse you see as a driver, the more of a danger you are to yourself and to others on the road. Recognise the serious limitation, namely, that artificial light is not the same as natural sunlight. Some drivers suffer from night blindness [nyctalopia]. To be on the safe side, go for regular visits to the optometrist, and more frequently as you become older. • THE CAR’S HEADLIGHT BEAMS ARE NOT THAT LONG SO TRAVEL SLOWER A car’s headlights light up the way only so far, and vision of what lies ahead is restricted to only what the driver can see. Travelling at 120 km/h means the car covers 33m in one second. Thus if you take two seconds to react to an object on the road, your car will have covered more than half a full rugby field (120 m). It makes you think, doesn’t it?

Travel slower, so that you have more time to respond. • TIRED AND DRUNK DRIVERS AND PEDESTRIANS SHARE THE SAME ROAD AS YOU Drivers have no way of knowing who they are sharing the road with at night. Some motorist approaching may have been driving for six hours non-stop. This is why it is advisable for drivers to be especially cautious when driving late at night. This is also the time when motorists are likely to be travelling from a party or a pub. Pedestrians walking across a freeway late at night may also pose a serious danger. Not only is it difficult for them to assess how fast a car is approaching them, but it is also difficult to spot them. • WILD OR DOMESTIC ANIMALS MAY BE ON THE ROAD

Be extra cautious when driving through areas where game, cattle or dogs can be expected to be wandering on the road. Look out for pairs of moving bright dots, which are an animal’s eyes reflecting the car’s headlights. • HOW CAN WE MAKE NIGHT DRIVING SAFER Not everything is beyond our control. Let’s apply the following tips. • IS YOUR WINDSCREEN CLEAN? The windscreen may be clean on the outside, but grease marks on the inside can distort light from oncoming cars at night. Wiping the outside and inside of a windscreen with, for instance, a newspaper will ensure good vision. • DIM DASHBOARD LIGHTS Dimming dashboard lights will improve night vision. Avoid hav-

ing any other lights on inside the car while travelling. • STAY FOCUSED Don’t allow cell phones to distract you during night driving. Avoid fatigue as well as consuming alcohol when driving. What is scary is that tired drivers can fall asleep for a second or two. However, the driver can do nothing about it, even if he or she is aware of such an event. Hence, the necessity for drivers to stop regularly and sleep if necessary. • IS YOUR CAR ROADWORTHY? It is shocking how often you see “one-eyed” vehicles travelling at night on South African roads. Ensure that your headlight beams are aimed correctly and that the headlights are not dirty. All tail lights and indicator lights must be in proper working order. — Supplied.

Five reasons to retire on the South Coast T

HE KwaZulu-Natal South Coast has always attracted tourists to its warm, welcoming shores, but recently there has been a much-deserved spike in interest by investors looking for a more permanent location. The mid-South Coast, in particular, is becoming a sought-after retirement venue with modern retirees looking for a place suited to an active, quality lifestyle. Here are five reasons, identified by mature lifestyle estate Renishaw Hills, why people are choosing to invest in the midSouth Coast: • WEATHER The South Coast experiences warm winter days with a cooling ocean breeze during summer. These resplendent weather conditions make the area one of the most popular holiday destinations, offering residents a permanent holiday lifestyle with the comfort of home. Swimming, paddling, scuba diving and beach walks are all part of the routine while those looking for a more sedentary option can enjoy reading in the shade, fishing or a

gentle dip to cool off.

• VIEWS There is something incredibly refreshing about looking out over the vast expanse of the ocean. The South Coast boasts some of the region’s most spectacular views with relaxation and peace, part of the local way of life. There’s no better way to start the day than by watching the sun rise over the ocean, allowing the gentle, rhythmic motion of the waves to soothe the soul. This azure ocean is beautifully complemented by the area’s abundant greenery through its coastal forests and wetlands.

• HEALTH BENEFITS Research indicates the enormous health benefits associated with coastal living and the South Coast, with its perennially warm weather, offers residents longevity and happiness. There are so many outdoor sports and fitness activities to take up — all of which place residents closer to nature. Walk, run or swim at the beach ... cycle or walk through the nature reserves or get involved in organised fitness classes that take place outdoors.

• QUALITY OF LIFE The warm seaside weather and vast expanses of natural land create an intoxicating mix that results in a laid-back mood throughout the region. The sounds of the ocean waves are only interspersed by the chitter of birdlife with the fresh ocean breeze elevating the soul. Embraced by a small-town community lifestyle, residents are known to have lower

• VALUE FOR MONEY One of the area’s biggest selling points is value for money. Retirees can look to invest in a well-constructed, sizable units suited to their individual living requirements, without having to go over budget or compromise on long-held dreams. The reality is that a lot of retirees won’t find exactly what they want at the price they’re willing to offer elsewhere along the
