Nuisance R by-laws in full swing
AY Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM) has taken strides towards enforcing the municipality’s newly promulgated nuisance by-laws,said mayor Nomusa Mqwebu. Speaking at a media briefing held at the RNM council chambers on Tuesday, Mqwebu said that the municipality had appointed a service provider to install signage to enforce the by-laws. Further to this, Mqwebu said that the municipality has in recent weeks held
workshops in several areas within the municipality in order to raise awareness about these regulations. The by-laws, which police residents conduct in public areas prohibiting nuisance behaviour such as, noise, public drinking, loitering and prostitution within the municipality came into effect in January, however, their implementation has been a widely debated issue.

Tavern owners warned on fake licences
Alleged robbers, killers arrested FEVER REPORTER THE two men responsible for a robbery where four people died at a tavern in Lamont near Ramsgate last week have been arrested. According to police, their arrests followed a prompt investigation following the incident. The two suspects were reportedly known to the community although their faces were covered in balaclavas during the incident. It is also alleged that one of the suspects was recently released after serving more than 10 years in prison for other crimes. Police spokesperson Nqobile Gwala said that the 42-year-old man arrested last week in connection with the Lamont attack was also found in possession of an unlicensed firearm with eleven rounds of ammunition. “The firearm was seized and will be subjected to ballistic tests to determine if it was used in the commission of any crimes,” said Gwala. The second man was arrested at the Nkampini Ward in the Gcilima Location on Saturday and appeared in court on Monday. The two are suspected to be responsible for the killing of four patrons between the ages of 25 and 36 who were socialising at a tavern in Lamont near Ramsgate last Monday. “According to an eye witness, the victims were socialising at a tavern when two men arrived with their faces were covered with balaclavas. They ordered all the people who were sitting outside the tavern to get inside and forced everyone to lie on their stomach,” said Margate SAPS spokesperson Captain Gerald Mfeka. “They then demanded the money from the barman and took his cellphone before loading the liquor into their bag. One of the perpetrators allegedly shot four victims in the head whilst they were still lying on their stomach,” said Mfeka. The two fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. They are remanded in custody and will appear again in court on May 2. — Supplied.
HE station commander of Port Shepstone SAPS Brigadier Sandra Nala has warned local tavern owners who do not have liquor licenses that the SAPS will act against all persons who trade without proper documentation. Nala said this after an unlicensed tavern known as Duma Tavern in Bhobhoyi was closed by police last Thursday after the 38-year-old owner was in possession of a fraudulent liquor license. Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Zandra Wiid said that the owner was served with summons to appear in court on May 24, for selling liquor without a valid license, but he instead opted to pay an admission of guilt fee of R3 000. “Investigations into the premises began when two people were stabbed on Saturday April 24, during an altercation near the tavern. Both people died and murder cases were opened.” Wiid said that a 20-year-old man was later

Earlier this year residents raised concerns that while the by-laws were readily welcomed by communities, the municipality was not bothered to enforce them. To that effect residents signed a petition in attempts to force the municipality to implement the by laws. The Ward 19 petition initiated by the area ward councillor followed a Beach Picnic music concert held at the St Michaels beach on February 4. Demands on the petition included that the municipality apply and police promulgated nuisance by-laws “without fear or favour”, that no public events like the beach picnic be held at the St Michaels beach in the future and that surrounding communities be consulted before any events for the area are considered or approved by the municipality. Mqwebu said that the enforcement of the by-laws was an ongoing process.
“The enforcement is ongoing and the municipality will ensure that the culture of lawlessness in our towns and residential areas is dealt with harshly,” said Mqwebu. “The relevant stakeholders such as community policy forums, ratepayers associations and business forums were also roped in,” said Mqwebu. Full particulars of the promulgated nuisance and behaviour in public places by-laws are available between 10 am and 4 pm at the Department of Public Safety, corner of Woolley Street and Robinson Street, old Post Office building — opposite Shoprite/Checkers, Port Shepstone and all municipal libraries. “This by-law’s purpose is to provide for measures for preventing, minimising or managing public nuisance and also to prohibit certain activities or conduct in public places,”said Mqwebu.

arrested for the stabbings and has appeared in court. She said that there have been a couple of similar incidents in the past. “The owners are fined and most of the times pay admission of guilt. We will do operations to expose illegal license holders when we receive this kind of information and we will also do sting operations at premises to verify whether licenses are valid.” According to the KZN Liquor Authority a licence is required for any person, who is selling, manufacturing or distributing liquor. A person trading without a licence is guilty of an offence and the South African Police Services may take steps to close down and confiscate the assets of the business. The liquor authority says that the license makes the holder of the license legally responsible, as far as protecting the public interest and the general public against concoctions being sold to them.

Man (25) gets life sentence for raping niece A MALANGENI man (25) was sentenced to life in prison for raping his six-year-old niece while the mother, left her and her sister in his care in February last year. According to police spokesperson Captain Vincent Pandarum, on February 26 last year, a 30-year-old Malangeni mother went out, leaving her two daughters at home in the care of their paternal uncle who lived with them. When she returned home later that day, she observed her six-year-old daughter behaving strangely and visiting the bathroom frequently. She examined the child and found that she had been sexually violated and was hurt. When questioned, the child replied that she had been raped by her uncle and warned not to tell anyone. The matter was reported to the Umzinto SAPS and a case of rape was registered and assigned to Detective Sergeant Nonkululeko Mgqibisa of the Umzinto Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit (FCS) for investigation. The uncle, who fled the scene, was subsequently arrested by police and made to stand trial. Major General Sethenya Nxamagele, the Ugu Cluster Commander commended Sergeant Mgqibisa for the excellent investigation of the case and securing a conviction. “It is sad when elders who are supposed to care for and protect children, betray their trust and abuse them. This sentence will send out a strong message to others who may have thoughts of committing similar offences. My prayer is that, with proper counselling, the little girl will recover fully from her terrible ordeal”, said Nxamagele. — Supplied.
Car-jackers arrested in Bhobhoyi THREE men were arrested in the Bhobhoyi area on Friday evening in connection with a hi-jacking that took place in Ntabankulu in the Eastern Cape. The vehicle was intercepted with the hijacked minibus in Bhobhoyi shortly before midnight on Friday. Port Shepstone SAPS spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Zandra Wiid said that the three men were found and they confiscated two pistols, two magazines and several rounds of ammunition and also impounded the stolen minibus. “The driver (28) of the minibus was contacted at 8 pm in Ntabankhulu for a special request to take a passenger to Umzimkhulu as the caller wanted to attend a funeral in Umzimkhulu,” said Wiid. “When the legitimate driver of the combi arrived at the pick-up point, he was confronted by the three suspects,tied up and thrown into his own combi. The suspects pointed him with firearms and later dumped him near Harding on the road,” said Wiid. “A passing motorist came to his aid and the matter was reported to the Harding SAPS. The vehicle was intercepted by members from Port Shepstone 10111 call centre response vehicle, POP and the CSC,” said Wiid. A balaclava, gloves and several sets of Eastern Cape number plates were also found inside the vehicle. Ntabankhulu SAPS will investigate a carjacking case and the suspects will appear in an Eastern Cape court soon. — Supplied.

Dagga dealers arrested
LAST Wednesday police from the Port Shepstone Crime Prevention Unit and Public Order Policing (POP) acted on information and pulled a white sedan off the road, near a shopping centre in the Port Shepstone CBD. The vehicle which was bearing ND registration plates, had three male occupants, aged 23, 26 and 31 years. Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid said that when police approached the vehicle they requested to search
it and found five bags containing loose dagga in the boot of the car. Wiid said the dagga was to be sold on the streets of Port Shepstone. “The car will be impounded and the three suspects will be charged for dealing in dagga and appear in court soon. Brigadier Sandra Nala, station commander of Port Shepstone, has welcomed the arrests, especially in view of the fact that the police has an ongoing battle trying to rid the streets of drug dealers.”

Ezinqoleni missing millions, investigation looms KADWA'S OMEGA MOAGI >>firstname.lastname@example.org
HE deadline for the much anticipated report on R35 million, which was allegedly lost to corruption and irregular spending by the then Ezinqoleni Municipality, has been extended yet again. The report which was expected to give details on investigations into the missing millions, by the Ray Nkonyeni Local Municipality (RNM)Municipal Public Accounts Committee (MPAC) and Provincial Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA) first at the end of March. The investigation into the Ezinqoleni Municipality were first initiated in August last year from reports that RNM had lost R35 million to irregular expenditure through alleged acts of misconduct by senior managers during the merger of Eznqoleni Municipality and the Hibiscus Coast Municipality. Speaking at a media briefing at the RNM.
council chambers on Tuesday, RNM Mayor Nomusa Mqwebu said a report from Cogta earlier this month has indicated that the department and the municipality has conducted all “preliminary” work for the investigation. This includes holding interviews with all stakeholders who were part of the process of procurement in relation to the matter under
‘The investigation into the Ezinqoleni municipality were first initiated in August last year from reports that Ray Nkonyeni municipality (RNM) has lost R35 million to irregular expenditure’
investigation, however, an official report will only be released once the physical verification of the projects under investigation has been concluded. Municipal manager Max Mbili said the department was reluctant to release a preliminary report in void of supporting evidence. Mbili said that during the investigation’s initial stages, the municipality’s internal auditors sought Cogta’s assistance with the investigations due to the realisation of the magnitude of the case and thus the complexities encountered were not surprising. Mbili said that the investigations were 80% complete and would be released “soon,” hopefully, before the end of the financial year in June. It is alleged that just before the merger of the Ezinqoleni and Hibiscus Coast municipalities, a number of construction projects including the construction of a community hall, an access road and a sports field were approved and paid for, but they don’t exist.

Pupil transporters meet as permits deadline looms OMEGA MOAGI >>firstname.lastname@example.org THE Ugu Scholar Transport Association met at the Civic Centre in Port Shepstone last Tuesday to discuss the new regulations of the Land Transport Act on pupil transport as promulgated by the Department of Transport last year in May. Chairperson of the association Madlenkosi Zulu said that the meeting was held in order to alert its members that the department would start prosecuting members in the region without an operating license as of May 1. “Although the new regulations were effective as of May 2017, as an association we asked the department to grant us an extension until May this year to acquire our licenses and the proper forms of transport as per the department’s requirements. During this meeting we reiterated to members that the deadline extension was fast approaching and members are expected to comply as of May 1,” said Zulu. “The association has also initiated a relationship with Nissan and Ithala bank to assist members with discount deals on vehicle purchases and as the executive, we were pleased to report that these negotiations have reached an advanced stage and will go into effect soon,”said Zulu. Regulation 250 of the Land Transport Act was published on November 11, 2016, but came into effect on May 11, 2017. The amendment disallows the transport of
school children for reward in the goods compartment of a vehicle. It also does not allow other persons to be transported in the goods compartment for reward unless it is done in terms of the National Land Transport Act, 2009 (NLTA). An operating licence may, therefore, be issued for a goods vehicle if it is done in terms of the NLTA provisions and the transport is not for school children. Children and other persons may still be transported in the goods compartment of a vehicle if it is not done for reward as long as Regulation 247 of the Act is complied with. Other changes in the legislation stipulated that drivers needed to be re-evaluated when renewing a licence, and no more than five people are to be carried in a bakkie load bed. Also, speed limits are to be reduced from 60 to 40 km/h in urban areas, from 100 to 80 km/h in rural areas and from 120 to 100 km/h on freeways running through a residential area. Finally, according to the new rules goods vehicles above 9 000 kg GVM are banned from public roads during peak travelling times. KZN Transport Mluleki Mtungwa said that while these laws are officially in operation, some motorists were not fully aware of them and risked getting arrested for breaking the law. Mtungwa said that this was specifically true for the transporters of school pupils and issued a stern warning that all non-compliers would be arrested and persecuted.

Responce to licensing office issues OMEGA MOAGI >>email@example.com
FTER weeks of public complaints of extremely slow to no service at all for customers at the Port Shepstone Licensing Department, Ray Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM) has offered an explanation for the mayhem. Speaking at a media briefing at the council chambers on Tuesday, RNM mayor Nomusa Mqwebu said that the municipality acted as an agent of the Department of Transport (DOT) in relation to motor licensing and processing of applications for both learners drivers’ license, drivers’ license and professional drivers’ license (PrDP). To that effect, Mqwebu said that all machinery used at the licensing department were the property of and maintained by the DoT.
Mqwebu said that the issues experienced at the licensing department in recent weeks were due to the installation of new machinery by the DOT at the licensing department and the unfamiliarity of staff members with the equipment. “Since the installation of this new machinery, there have been challenges in terms of the pace of the processes and these were escalated to the Department [of Transport],” said Mqwebu. “It needs to be stated that the officials of the municipality are as much frustrated as the members of the public are with the current situation. The officials are trying by all means to accommodate members of the public as much as possible as they sometimes work even up to 6 pm instead of 4 pm,” said Mqwebu requesting the public’s patience in the matter.

stolen livestock that have been recovered by police, are difficult to identify,” said Pandarum. “This poses a challenge for police as they are unable to determine who the owners are so that they can be informed that their animals have been recovered or killed in a motor vehicle accident. “Disputes arise when different parties claim ownership of livestock that have not been marked, tattooed or branded,” said Pandarum.

Young poet needs your vote OMEGA MOAGI >>firstname.lastname@example.org
Poet Mandisa Hadebe’s dream can become a reality through your votes.
LOCAL poet has been nominated for the KZN Rise Youth of South Africa (RYOSA) Awards in the category of the best Imbongi and says her main purpose with her work is to teach and heal. Mandisa Hadebe, or Imbong’encane, as she is affectionately known by her followers, said she was first introduced to poetry in 2016 by a friend and she thought to try it out without knowing that she had the knack for it. In coming months a myriad more influences would come from loved ones and before she knew it Hadebe was performing on several community events and platforms. “The first person to inspire me to try my hand in poetry was my friend Busani Shinga who pressured me to write regularly. She used to constantly encourage me, telling me that I might make a living from the art someday,” said Hadebe. “Thereafter my isiZulu teacher in Grade 12, Mr Madlala from Mdlangaswa High School, further fuelled the engine through his teachings about expressing our feelings in our poetry,” said Hadebe. Hadebe then started submitting her work to Lucky Fihla from Ugu Youth Radio whom she said rendered further support. Through poetry Hadebe said she
managed to uncover many hidden gems not only of herself but of the universe that surrounded her. “Poetry gave me a deeper under-
standing of life. “My interactions with other poets awoke my consciousness on a variety of social issues affecting young people like the transactional sexual relationships of ‘blessers’ and other dangerous lifestyles. “It inspired me to study further and learn more about the society I live in,” said Hadebe. Raised in a Christian church orientated family, Hadebe says her biggest supporters are her mother BB (42) and brother Nkosingphile (27) who she said also play a huge role in her work. Hadebe said winning the award would open many doors for her. “I really want to achieve a lot with poetry. I want to heal people and inspire young people to learn of the many other useful things to be engrossed with in their lives besides drugs, adolescent infatuations, and alcohol. Winning this award would be a foot in the door for me,” she said. To vote for Hadebe SMS RYOSA161 to 33903 as many times as you like (SMS costs R1,50 each). The awards ceremony will be held in Durban next month.

Health department marches for cancer I
F more women came forward and got screened for breast and cervical cancer, they would live much longer, healthier and productive lives, and be there for their loved ones who need them — instead of dying young. This is according to KZN Health MEC Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo who led a march through the Port Shepstone city centre last Thursday to create awareness about the top five cancers in the country. Cervical cancer affects 1 in 40 women, and kills up to 3 500 women per year; while breast cancer affects 1 in 26 women in South Africa. The march took place amid a buoyant atmosphere, with nurses and local people, mainly women, carrying placards with powerful messages such as, “Early Detection Saves Lives”, “Obesity and Alcohol Consumption Increases the Risk of Breast Cancer” and many others. MEC Dhlomo said that today’s march is part of the “Phila Ma” campaign — aimed at promoting screening for breast and cervical cancer among women — and is one of a number of build-up events towards a national campaign on cancer, as announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa during the State of the Nation Address in February this year. The MEC urged women to get into the habit of regularly getting screened for breast and cervical cancer, so that any abnormalities can be detected ear-

ment, tools and strategies to assist in adding structure to their child’s life, and toilet training. Parents were also assisted in making individualised visual schedules for their children. Speech and language therapist at the school, Kimeshree Moodley, said the event was a huge success. She said for the next parent support group, parents will be encouraged to become “researchers” for their children.

We want to therefore say that the things that have been said about oncology in the province account for 20% of the cancer cases, which are at an advanced stage. These campaigns of early detection therefore deal with 80% of the population. If people are coming in much earlier and we detect these cancers, we guarantee complete cure of their cancers. “Cancer of the cervix used to start in women after menopause.

He also encouraged all women in the province to take advantage of the Pap Smear Drive, which takes place at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital, on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 8 am.

JUSTIN MACKRORY: CEO SOUTH COAST TOURISM
Le long weekend AT this month-end, it is another long weekend which for our visitors and hosts can provide no less than five days of relax and leisure time opportunity here on the South Coast. Tourism trends suggest that people prefer to have multiple minibreaks as opposed to a couple of longer breaks each year. In some respects this month-end is an extension of our Easter Season which should provide additional tourism and leisure revenues for our hospitality providers and product owners.So what’s lined up for our ever welcome guests? The really big one is the South Coast Bike Fest (April 27-30) which is probably the event to attend in KZN at this time. This year, the programme has been designed to entertain families, bike enthusiasts and from young to old musical offerings that suit those
restful or party like crazy preferences. Visit Southcoastbikefest.co.za But there is more to this forthcoming “Le weekend”. For golfers there are competitions at Margate, Umdoni and Wild Coast courses (I am sure the others have as well). The Marlin Game Fish Classic at Port Edward seems to be the fishing draw card albeit that each of our launch sites will be busy with anglers going out to sea. At Scottburgh, the challenging Joberg 2 C bike race finishes at the beach on the 28th and the popular Margate Bowls week commences on the 30th. Some 350 bowlers for a week! I hope the liquor outlets are well-stocked. We also cannot forget the weekly events such as the Park Runs (on Saturdays) at Umdoni Park and St Michaels Beach and the Uvongo Flea Market on Saturdays and Sun-
days. So, even though the local school breaks are at an end, the South Coast has made ample provision to cater to our imminent visitors and residents. Hey and if you want to swim, surf, chill, wine and dine, dive, jump off cliffs, traverse cross country, sample local culture and cuisine, horse ride, bike ride, fish from the rocks, go to farms, check out nature or simply park off with loved ones, that is a given at any time. Information on all things we offer can is available for our Visitor Information Centres or off our website. At this point, I also invite all organisers to submit their event details in advance of their event date so we can update our events calendar — contact Vanessa on firstname.lastname@example.org Have a lovely, safe, enjoyable and splendid South Coast weekend.
April 26, 2018
FORMER president Jacob Zuma has always been both a lover and a fighter. His charming style and allure to people are almost as well known as his revolutionary stripes. This characteristic is at least one of the factors which kept him in power for over a decade even as he dragged his country through nine scandals. Zuma loves to love. He has four wives and news last Friday revealed that he is about to take a fifth — Nonkanyiso Conco (24), with whom he last week had a baby at 76 years old. If you’re calculating, it’s a 52year age gap and the little one is his 24th child. This is the best possible news for President Cyril Ramaphosa who reportedly faced the threat of a scalded Zuma mobilising behind disaffected ANC members in KwaZulu-Natal. But now it seems that Zuma has chosen to use his retirement to reignite a plan to marry more regularly. When he first became president, Zuma made a joyful biennial marriage part of his festivities, along with the annual Christmas party and chess tournament, to which he would treat his neighbours in the surrounds of Nkandla. In his first years in office, he married Thobeka Madiba and Gloria Ngema, and then the ANC put a stop to it. At his wedding to Ngema, Zuma told his new bride: “Don’t close the door that you found open ...” and he is clearly now free to exercise his options. A member of the ANC’s former leadership told me that the women in the party had approached Zuma and told him that his polygamous lifestyle was accepted as a traditional right, but if the first family ex-
panded annually it would impact on the party’s identity as a modern organisation that supports gender rights. Zuma’s polygamy and peccadillos were threatening to define his presidency, they warned. In 2010, Zuma was forced by his party to apologise to the nation for unpresidential behaviour after he fathered his 20th child with Sonono Khoza, the daughter of his friend and soccer boss Irvin Khoza. He was 29 years older than Khoza, whom he never married. So, the president stopped the wedded bliss and reportedly left a Swazi princess, Sebentile Dlamini, stranded after he proposed to her family in 2002. But, unshackled from the chains of office, the former president is now free to be the lover he always was. The nation has been atwitter with news that Zuma may be fomenting an uprising in KwaZulu-Natal. It’s well known that he did not leave office a happy chap — in fact, the former president was virtually dragged kicking and screaming the words: “But what I have I done?”, from Mahlamba Ndlopfu, the presidential estate in Pretoria. Reports have suggested that Zuma plans to bolster a provincial opposition force against Ramaphosa. This could go two ways: either a new party is formed to take on the governing ANC in KwaZulu-Natal, or provincial barons, led by Zuma, would cause enough trouble to secure a national general council where a recall of Ramaphosa would be attempted. So to hear that Zuma’s lover has won out over his fighter is the best possible news for Ramaphosa. — HuffPost SA. • Ferial Haffajee, editor-at-large, HuffPost South Africa.

Service delivery should be strengthened to all communities and to build a confident climate for investment and job creation. The previous years’ water outages has cost numerous jobs in our vital tourism sector. With an unemployment rate over 40% within the Ugu District Municipality, we cannot afford further water outages that will result in the poor and marginalised losing their jobs. The DA will continue to drive Ugu towards spending money on real services. And it gets better when we focus on basic service delivery, and do our jobs honestly, and treat residents with respect and dignity. COUNCILLOR LEONARD NGCOBO Lower South Coast

THE Democratic Alliance welcomes the postponement of the Ugu Jazz Festival by Ugu District Municipality. The decision is not only a victory for the DA, but for long-suffering residents as well. On numerous occasions the DA has called for funding to nonessential ego events like the Ugu Jazz Festival and Ugu Film Festival, to be cut. For the past seven years Ugu has expended R5.6 million on Ugu Jazz Festival alone. An additional R800 000 would have been spent in 2018. This money could have been utilised to either extend piped water to the marginalised rural communities or refurbish the deteriorating infrastructure, or both. During a period of severe financial stress, the Ugu District Municipality must focus on servicing residents and not multi-million rand show projects. A district municipality’s primary
How to ﬁnd us:
THE chaotic way in which the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has handled the prosecution of EFF leader Julius Malema has accentuated the urgent need for intervention at the authority. The NPA has opened itself up to criticism from Malema and AfriForum’s private prosecutions unit, led by former prosecutor Gerrie Nel, for dragging its feet since August 2015, when the Limpopo High Court struck the matter off the roll. The NPA has now handed AfriForum a political victory by placing itself in a position where it is forced to give a firm commitment that it will decide about recharging Malema in August. Malema has predictably called AfriForum’s move racist. None of this would have been necessary had the NPA done its job. To recap: City Press revealed in 2011 that Malema’s Ratanang Family Trust, named after his son, was a shareholder in the tender-rich On-Point Engineering, a company run by Malema’s engineer friend Lesiba Gwangwa. At the time, Malema was the ANC Youth League leader and a powerful power broker in his home province of Limpopo. On-Point Engineering won a number of government tenders, mainly a R52 million contract to set up a “project management unit” in the provincial roads and transport department. The state alleges that Malema benefited financially from the tender, through his trust, and bought a farm and a Mercedes-Benz with the money. Malema and his co-accused first appeared in court in 2013. The case was postponed several times, during which some of the accused were removed from the case. At the final appearance in Polokwane before Judge George Mothle in August 2015, Malema and Gwangwa appeared without the third accused, On-Point director Kagiso Dichabe. When the NPA applied for a further postponement, because of Dichabe’s ill health, Mothle declined and struck the matter off the court roll — temporary legal relief. During the same appearance, Malema unsuccessfully applied to be tried separately to prevent further delays. The EFF leader wanted to “clear his name” and “prevent the further delay of justice”. Every accused
has the constitutional right to a fair trial within a reasonable period of time. Unlike former president Jacob Zuma, Malema has not attempted to delay his trial through legal shenanigans. He has consistently asked the NPA to expedite his hearing. By August, it would have taken the NPA another three years to decide whether to reinstate the charges. Malema has denied receiving bribes through his family trust and has alleged that the NPA, through its former acting head Nomgcobo Jiba in cahoots with former Justice minister Jeff Radebe, took a political decision to charge him to deter his political ambitions. Malema, through his lawyers, will probably put up this argument if and when his trial starts. Understandably, Malema would not want to be an accused in a corruption trial when he and his party are on the campaign trail for the 2019 general election. This is a make-or-break election for the EFF, one which will show if the party can lift itself beyond the seven percent support mark. Apart from racial rhetoric and radical land expropriation, anti-corruption has been a pillar of the EFF’s mantra since its inception. The party played a pivotal role in exposing Zuma’s complicity in the Nkandla scandal and keeping him accountable. Malema can hardly be seen as trying to dodge corruption allegations against him when he champions clean governance as part of the EFF’s manifesto. Instead of blaming AfriForum — opportunistic as its move may be — Malema should direct his wrath at advocate Shaun Abrahams and the NPA for failing to make a decision about his prosecution for almost three years. As for Abrahams, his days are probably numbered. Ramaphosa is awaiting the judgment by the Constitutional Court on the appointment of a prosecutions boss before he replaces Abrahams, as the North Gauteng High Court directed him to do. The NPA needs a strong, principled lawyer to restore its image as a prosecutor without fear or favour. It is embarrassing that the NPA had to be moved by an opportunistic lobby group to do its job in the Malema case.

Wouter se Watergat KOM ons kry die rugby agter die rug. Ek trek my opmerking oor die Sharks verlede week terug en hoop dat die manne van Durban kan voortbou op hul goeie oorwinning. Dt gee ons ondersteuners hier in die Watergat weer hoop. Pottie se geliefde Lions brul voort, en indien hulle die Reds die komende naweek kan wen, en dalk een van die twee wedstryde in Nieu-Seeland, sal hulle feitlik verseker wees van die uiteindelike top-posisie op die Suid-Afrikaanse punteleer. Maar wat dan? Weer verloor teen ‘n Kiwispan in die eindstryd indien hulle die uitspeelwedstryde wen? Die derde jaar in ‘n ry? Wil nie eers daaraan dink nie, maar ek is bevrees, die top Nieu-Seelandse spanne is in ‘n klas van hul eie. Een van die groot besprekingspunte in die Watergat die afgelope week was blou-ape. Jan Combrinck van Umtentweni het geen geheim daarvan gemaak nie dat hy dink die troppe hier op die Suidkus moet uitgedun word. ‘Wetenskaplik, en behoorlik beplan met verantwoordelike mense in beheer,want so kan dit nie aangaan nie. Gister het vier van hulle ons huis binnegekom deur ‘n venster oop te dwing, en die kombuis verwoes. Rou eiers, brood, aartappelskyfies en stukkende glase het die hele wêreld volgelê toe ons ‘n geraas hoor en hulle verwilder. Een van hulle was aggressief en wou baklei. Dit het ons ‘n uur geneem om die plek weer skoon te kry,’ Jan se klagte het ‘n stortvloed soortgelyke verhale uitgelok. Van die manne wie se groentetuine, blombeddings, avokadopeer- en selfs lietsjiebome deur die diere verwoes is,was nogal radikaal in hul uitsprake. ‘Hulle is ‘n pes’, was een se mening, sal sy naam nie noem nie om ooglopende redes. ‘Ek skiet hulle met ‘n Daisy-pistooltjie in die agterstewes, en het op die oomblik geen prob-
Versoening VERSOENING is ’n groot woord. In eenvoudige taal beteken dit om op te maak, om uiteenlopende mense of opponerende standpunte by mekaar uit te bring. Selfdood-bomaanvalle, onderdrukking van menseregte, haatspraak, is maar van die resultate van onversoenlikheid. Op kleiner skaal sien ons gebroke huwelike, stukkende families, verdeelde gemeenskappe, verhoudings wat versuur het. Onversoenlikheid is nie altyd so sigbaar nie. Ons maak of alles reg is, maar ons gebaretaal verraai ons. Intussen dra ons woede en frustrasie in ons harte rond. Ons vermy die persone met wie ons in onvrede saamleef. Erger nog ons versprei slegte stories oor hulle. Ja, ons is in ons menseverhoudings meesters om krake in verhoudings toe te smeer. In Matteus 18:15-20 praat Jesus met Sy volgelinge oor versoening, spesifiek binne die konteks van die Christen gemeenskap. Volgens onlangse sensusgegewens reken agt en sewentig persent van Suid Afrika se inwoners hulle as

eem nie’. Dis bietjie erg, maar ek besef inwoners is gefrustreerd, veral omdat ander mense, veral besoekers, die probleem vererger deur die ape te voer. Omdat daar so baie kos beskikbaar is, is die wyfies vrugbaarder en teel die troppe vinniger aan. Pleks van een keer per jaar, is daar van hulle wat nou twee keer per jaar babas het. Oom Pottie is onverbiddellik: ‘Waarom waarsku die owerhede jou in die Krugerwildtuinkampplekke om nie diere deur die draad te voer nie? En dieselfde met die bobbejane in die Kaap? Want jy teken hul doodsvonnis. Waarom moet dit hier by ons anders wees?’ Hy is gou, en nogal emosioneel, aangevat deur Danie en Sanet van Vuuren van Oslo Beach: ‘Die ape is nie die indringers nie! Dis mense wat hulle kom verdring en hul lewensruimte beperk het. Hulle is oulik, ons voer hulle, en buitendien, hulle is beskermde diere en dis onwettig om hulle leed aan te doen.’ Sal liewer nie van die brom-kommentare oordra nie, maar dit was baie duidelik die minderheid in die Watergat het hiermee saamgestem. Ewenwel, dis seker maar ons lot: Leef en laat leef. Daar is erger probleme in ons land as blouape. Veral as die ‘blou’ deur iets anders vervang word. Die storie van die week kom van die einste Sanet van Oslo Beach: ‘n Man bel sy vrou uit die ongevalle-afdeling van die Port Shepstone-hospitaal: “Liefie, ek’s omgery nadat ek my kantoor verlaat het. Santie het my hospitaal toe gebring. Hulle het ‘n hele paar toetse gedoen en X-Strale geneem. Die trauma aan my kop is pynlik, maar gelukkig het ek nie ernstige beserings nie. Ek het wel drie gekraakte ribbes en ‘n oop fraktuur aan my linkerbeen,dalk gaan hulle my regtervoet amputeer.” Nà ‘n rukkie se stilte, antwoord sy vrou: ‘Wie de f$*% is Santie?’
O K om
Christene. Christene slaag baie goed daarin, verkeerdelik, om krake in versteurde verhoudings toe te smeer. Hulle maak of alles reg is, terwyl alles verkeerd is. Ons mag nie maak asof alles reg is nie. Nee, Jesus roep Sy volgelinge op om die onversoenlikheid so gou moontlik aan te spreek voordat dit in mense se gesigte ontplof. Wat is Jesus se resep in Matteus 18 vir versoening? Hanteer die saak eerstens op ’n persoon tot persoon basis. Dit vra gebed en nederigheid want die ander party mag dalk kom met ’n negatiewe teenreaksie. As die gesprek slaag, het jy waarskynlik ‘n broer of suster bygekry want soms word die bande tussen mense sterker na hulle ’n saak uitgepraat het. As dit nie werk nie neem ’n getuie saam om onpartydig te oordeel. As dit nie slaag nie, hanteer dit op gemeentelike vlak. Dit is dan nodig dat die groter gemeenskap sal saam bid en saam stry vir versoening. As dit ook nie werk nie, is die laaste uitweg om die onversoenlike persoon eers uit te sluit uit die Christelike kring tot die persoon skaam kry. Die eerste prys bly egter versoening. Moet nie uitstel nie. Die prys van onversoenlikheid is te hoog. Met wie of watter gemeenskap moet jy versoen raak?
Jean Loots, wat vandag dwelmverslaafdes help nadat hy self die reis hel toe en terug meegemaak het.
‘Hel toe en terug’. Die reis van Jean Loots JOHAN PRETORIUS
IT was verlede week ‘n groot voorreg om kennis te maak met ‘n baie spesiale mens: Die 28-jarige Jean Loots, Hoof van Onderhoud by ‘n rehabilitasiesentrum in Ramsgate, en ook bestuurder van die sentrum se sg. ‘Halfweghuis’. Jean is reeds die afgelope 22 maande by die sentrum, die South Coast Recovery Centre, en die afgelope jaar in sy huidige hoedanigheid nadat hy eers deur ‘n skrikwekkende periode van sy lewe, gevolg deur ‘n rehabilitasieprogram van tien maande by die sentrum was. Hy praat openlik oor hoe hy die spoor byster geraak het, en wat hy moes deurmaak om vandag te kan verklaar hy is ‘skoon’. Jean is dankbaar dat hy een van die gelukkiges is wat erg aan dagga, ‘harde’ dwelms en alkohol verslaaf was, maar verlos is van sy afhanklikheid met die hulp van kundiges, selfdissipline en geloof. Jean maak geheim daarvan nie dat sy bekering tydens die behandelingstyd by die sentrum ‘n sleutelrol in sy rehabilitasie gespeel het. ‘ Sonder my geloof in Jesus Christus en Sy hulp en invloed in my lewe, sou ek dit nooit gemaak het nie. Op geen manier nie’ Jean se lewensverhaal klink soos die bekende uitdrukking ‘hel toe en terug.’ Sy reis na sy aardse hel het op 13-jarige ouderdom op Klerksdorp begin toe sy ouers geskei is. Hy het begin dagga rook, gekuier by sy suster se vriende wat heelwat ouer was, tussen 18 en 21, meesal ook in onstabiele gesinne, en wat hom op die verkeerde pad gelei het. Van 15 jaar oud af het hy kokaïne, benewens drank en dagga, gebruik. Hy was sestien toe hy kokaïne en drank gelos het, maar steeds dagga gerook het. Hoewel hy probleme op skool gehad het, het hy matriek geslaag. Ná skool het hy werk by ‘n mynmaatskappy op Rustenburg gekry, ‘n goeie salaris verdien, en sy drank en dwelmmisbruik het toegeneem. Hy het met ‘harde’ dwelms soos CAT kennis gemaak, en sy lewenswyse het so hande uitgeruk dat hy deur sy werkgewer afgedank is. Jean is Kaapstad toe. Daar het hy op Worcester by ‘n wynkelder werk gekry, en sy reis op die dwelmpad het verdere momentum toe hy op 21-Jarige leeftyd TIK begin gebruik het. Hy was verbaas hoe maklik bekombaar en relatief goedkoop dit was. ‘Ek het vriende gemaak met van my kollegas in die Kleurlinggemeenskap’, vertel hy, ‘en is deur hulle aan bendes voorgestel by wie ek besonder gewild was. Hulle het my gerespekteer omdat ek bereid was om by hulle betrokke te raak.’
Hierna is Jean Mosselbaai toe waar hy by sy oupa gewoon, maar by bendes betrokke geraak het. Saam met hulle het sy dwelm- en drankmisbruik vererger, en is hy deur verskeie skrikwekkende ervarings, soos mense wat voor hom doogemaak word, beelde wat vandag nog by hom spook en somtyds moeilik maak om te slaap. ‘Ek kan byvoorbeeld onthou hoe iemand voor my aan stukke gekap is. Dit was traumaties’. In hierdie tydperk het hy ‘n ‘baie spesiale meisie’ ontmoet by wie hy ‘n dogtertjie gehad het. Hy het haar egter gemanipuleer vir geld om sy dwelmkoste te dek, en weer op straat beland. Sy meisie het hom talle male kom haal, elke keer tevergeefs. Uiteindelik het hy besluit hy kan nie meer nie, en is terug na sy oupa toe. Sy oupa en ‘n welgestelde oom het tot sy redding gekom , en hy is na die rehabilitasiesentrum in Ramsgate gestuur. Hier het hy die program van ses maande voltooi, plus ‘n bykomende vier maande by die sg. Halfweghuis, (wat hy nou bestuur), waar mense stelselmatig gehelp word om weer ‘n normale lewe te lei. ‘Die feit is’, verklaar Jean, ‘herstel is ‘n lewenslange proses. Toe ek hier aangekom het, het ek slegs 64 kg geweeg, en min mense het gedink ek sou dit maak. Maar met die hulp van die Here is ek daardeur. My oupa is ongelukkig oorlede toe ek agt maande hier was, maar my dogtertjie is nog die lig in my lewe. Sy bly by haar ma, met wie ek nie getroud is nie, maar ‘n goeie verstandhouding het.’ Jean voel sterk oor die moontlike wettiging van daggagebruik in enige vorm. ‘Dit maak nie saak wat die sg. Kenners sê nie: Dagga is bewys as die grootste ‘gateway drug’ onderweg na sterker middels soos kokaïne en heroïene, en is die grootste oorsaak van ernstige psigotiese afwykings. Daarbenewens kies dwelms nie ‘ras of klas’ nie. Enigiemand kan ‘n slagoffer word, soos die sakemanne en ander mense in ons plaaslike samelewing en elders wat kokaïne gebruik om beter te kan funksioneer, of om ‘sosiale redes’. Talle van hulle beland hier by ons met baie ernstige verslawings.’ Jean het net lof vir wat die sentrum vir hom beteken. Dit het in Junie verlede jaar nuwe eienaars gekry, en die hoof-aandeelhouers is die Hoofbestuurder, Derek Walton, wat 27 jaar in die polisie was, die plaaslike prokureur Robin Petterson, en Gary Tainton. Die rehabilitasieprogram duur ses maande, en die sentrum het gekwalifiseerde maatskaplike werkers, addiction counsellors en ‘n kliniese sielkundige wat help met die behandeling.

OUTH COAST Mall received an award at the PMR. Africa KwaZulu-Natal South Coast Survey Business Excellence Awards ceremony held at San Lameer last Thursday. The awards followed a survey completed by PMR. Africa on the KZN South Coast Region. Using ratings based on the perceptions of respondents, qualifying institutions were measured on a variety of factors such as their contribution to the economic growth and development of the region, levels of management expertise, implementation of corporate governance and levels of innovation among others. PMR. Africa said that one of the main aims of the awards was to profile the region as a growth point and potential investment area for foreign and local developers and investors. South Coast Mall received an award in the Diamond category for doing the most in the past 12 months to stimulate economic growth and development on the KZN South Coast. The mall’s marketing manager Jayne Pillay and centre manager Jayne Munro accepted the award on behalf of the mall. “This award is a tribute to the entire staff force at the South Coast Mall for their hard work and commitment,” said Munro.

Addressing social and environmental injustices W
ESSA has launched a powerful new education programme that is aimed at enabling in and out-of-school youth from 11-25 years to take a stand on local social and environmental issues and risks through the media of writing, photography or video. Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) is a youth-led environmental journalism initiative that creates a productive space for our youth to reimagine and craft a sustainable socially and environmentally just future while developing skills to make a positive contribution to redress environmental injustices by highlighting issues through reporting. The programme was launched on Tuesday at the Sci Bona Discovery Centre in Newtown, Johannesburg, where an enthusiastic group of
youth from five schools listened eagerly to handson presentations by experts in the fields of writing, photography and videography. A writing workshop was led by The Daily Vox, an online newsletter, and the Institute for the Advancement of Journalism. This workshop focused on the skills of interviewing different stakeholders and responsible journalism. A photography workshop facilitated by photographers from “I Was Shot in Joburg” and lecturers from the “Market Photo Workshop” captured the essence of the saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. MindAd Media Thumbs Up, Bertus Louw from 50/50 and local videographer Monde Nyovane introduced the youth to the trade of videography and the undiscovered gems their cell phones hold
when it comes to taking videos and editing. These three workshops gave the youth a deeper understanding about the respective trades to start their journeys as young reporters in their own communities. Youth participating on the YRE programme will use a 4-step methodological process to guide their local campaigns and enhance their skills in critical thinking, research and problem-solving. The programme uses the sustainable development goals as international annual themes for young reporters to adopt and explore. Youth will be mentored by experts from various fields giving them an opportunity to learn from and explore different careers such as environmental law research, videography, investigative journalism, social justice and politics. The programme also
provides an opportunity for participants to represent South Africa in the international YRE competition held annually. Says YRE Programme Manager Cindy-Lee Cloete, “YRE is a creative, participatory, multidisciplinary, nurturing, action and solution-oriented,and fun space for young like-minded individuals and groups that has the potential to develop leaders of change in South Africa.” YRE is the second new international programme WESSA has introduced in South Africa this year: earlier this month the organisation launched the Leaf (Learning about Forests) programme which aims to deepen the understanding of the relationship between people and nature, by increasing knowledge about the key role forests play in enabling sustainable life on our plane. — Supplied.
School elects new RCL
OMEGA MOAGI >>email@example.com ST MARTIN de Porres School announced new representative council learners (RCL) members at the school recently. Elections for the new RCL were done last month and all pupils from grade 8 to 12 participated. Last week the school held a special induction ceremony to official the new RCL. “The induction was held to officially hand over new ties to RCL. They are required to uphold the school rules and to ensure discipline is maintained during contact time and breaks,” said the school’s HOD Sister Staff.
Civilisations are being rapidly submerged in the quicksands of the African blood.
By now every one of us has seen it, practically the blacks cannot rule themselves.
Give them guns and they will kill each other. Let us all accept that the black man is the symbol of poverty, mental inferiority, laziness. What would happen one day if you woke up and on the throne sat a black man?
They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.
We are now trying to lay down a policy of keeping apart as much as possible.
Laziness is a trait in #blacks. It really is, I believe that.
We find ourselves with an overwhelming black population with a small white population.
I think he’s a threat to our country.
The mixing has degraded the whites.

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.

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.

tering through the windows, get out of the vehicle and wade to the nearest point of safer higher ground. Remember, you are more important than your car. • If your car is suddenly submerged and your windows aren’t already open, try and break a window and swim to the nearest point of safety, • If you are caught in a flood, be patient and remain calm. The AA, and emergency services will get you but there may be delays as they have to negotiate the same hazards, • Be especially cautious at night, or when visibility is low, as it may be harder to see floods ahead. If you do make it through the water, check your car for any damage, and feather the brakes to dry them. Have an expert examine your vehicle afterwards for any damage that be longer lasting. If your car has been partially or completely submerged, and you have stopped in a body of water, don’t try and start it unless you have had a technician look at it as this may result in damage to the engine. The AA concludes: “Finally, it is important to remain as calm as possible in these situations and assess the best way out. If this means leaving your car, do that rather than attempt to get your car through when it clearly won’t make it as you may be endangering your life and those of any passengers with you.” -Wheels24

SOME OTHER TIPS TO NEGOTIATE FLOODED ROADS INCLUDE: • Obey authorities and emergency personnel who tell you to avoid driving on a specific road. If a road has been closed, obey the closure, and drive the alternative route. • Do not try and cross a body of water, even if you think you can make it through, as the water may be deeper than you think, and the road may have eroded since you last used it. • If there is a risk you will be caught in a flood, pull off the road and look for higher ground. • If you do pull off, make sure you leave enough space for emergency vehicles to pass you. • If you have no alternative but to drive through a body of water, drive as slow as possible in first gear with both hands on the steering wheel. This will give your car the necessary traction to move forward. Driving fast may result in aquaplaning. • Ensure you are as visible as possible. Switch on your headlights. • If your car is being surrounded by water, unfasten your seatbelt (and those of any children with you), unlock your doors, and open your windows. If water starts en-
LTHOUGH flash floods are rare, when they occur, they can wreak havoc. The Automobile Association (AA) says floods can happen quickly, and can be extremely dangerous. The AA urges all motorists caught up in floods to follow some basic rules to negotiate the safest route out of these situations. It says the most important factor in dealing with floods is to avoid them in the first place. What if you encounter flooded roads? If you encounter a flood, some important rules need to be followed. Firstly, if possible, turn around and drive away from the flooded area. If this isn’t possible, try and gauge the depth of the water ahead by watching other vehicles negotiate a specific stretch of water. Do not attempt to go through this if it is deeper than 20cm as the water may damage mechanical and electronic components of your vehicle.

Southern KZN Regional School Girls’ Hockey Challenge held K
ING Edward High School claimed their fourth regional title in a riveting final against host school, Kokstad College, at the Southern KZN Regional of the SPAR KZN School Girls’ Hockey Challenge on Saturday, April 21. The two finalists earned top position in their pools, advancing through to the semi-finals where King Edward met Suid-Natal and Kokstad took on Southcity. King Edward won 2-0, and the Kokstad College Southcity game went to a penalty shootout, resulting in a 2-0 victory for Kokstad. In the last game of the day, fierce rivals King Edward and Kokstad notched up a 0-0 score at the end of full time, with Kokstad earning two short corners, the first of those was directly after no-nonsense umpire Jani Dorning awarded two cards to King Edwards players — a green was dished out first, followed by a yellow for continuously infringing the five yards at a free hit. Both shorties were successfully defended by the Matatiele team. Both teams didn’t really make any impact at the business ends of the field, with majority of the action taking place mid-field. The game progressed to a penalty shootout with the defending champs taking the first run. Anathi Madikizela charged into the circle, only to meet the advancing Anga Gogela who didn’t allow Madikizela any space to fire off a shot. Kokstad’s Sibabalwe Cabangama was next to go and meet the sturdy defence of Thuto Kanetsi. Ca-
bangama knocked the ball directly at Kanetsi, who easily stopped it and prevented any further chances. Second for KEHS, fiesty Azisa Cokota successfully knocked the first goal in, after running in and decisively sliding the ball right of Gogela. Kokstad’s Tyler Rorke levelled the score after her first attempt was stopped, and she pounced on the ball, slapping in her follow up shot that went left of the keeper. King Edwards’s Lukhona Ndumdum stepped up to the mark, moved the ball in, drawing Gogela out, then rounding her on the left and slipping the ball in to take KEHS 2-1 up. Finally, Simamkele Kwababa’s chance was denied by alert Kanetsi. Kwababa’s slap attempt was easily blocked and then Kanetsi charged the ball down, not allowing Kokstad players any space. The final score was 2-1 to King Edward. In the bronze game Sheppie team Suid-Natal took on fellow South Coasters Southcity where the game also went to a penalty shootout. The game ended at 0-0 with both teams not threatening to score. Suid-Natal’s Kayla Parson and Valerie Ahrens scored while Michaela van Der Heever sadly missed. The mirror image results saw Southcity’s Hannah Nero and Sarah-Joy Pringles score and McKayla Du Bruyn not able to get a third for her team. The bronze medal game then went to a sudden death, with Parson side stepping around Tamryn Steenkamp and determinedly finding the back of the
net. Focused Nero veered left, but her shot went wide of the box, allowing Suid-Natal third place. After the finals, Kokstad College coach Stephanie Peterson said: “It was a tough game. King Edward are worthy opponents to play against, but it is always the team with the most fight that wins. “I was very proud of our team, even though they are young, they can only get better from here.” Deidre Duminy, coach for King Edward High School, said: “The whole tournament, as always, was well organised and very exciting, and a good opportunity for us to practice our skills in play. “The first game was slow for us, and then the goals seemed to open up after that. Kokstad College is a wonderful yet terrible opponent, as they are a tenacious team, and one can never be assured of the outcome. We
enjoyed playing on their home ground and of course pleased that we managed to defend our title.” Joining the list of Most Promising Umpire from various regionals is Kyle de Kock from Kokstad College. The 16-year-old Grade 11 pupil was impressive with his decisive decisions throughout the day and has been invited to the finals where he will further his umpiring career. King Edward are the seventh team to advance to the Grand Finals at St Mary’s DSG in Kloof on July 21 and 22. They join Ferrum Hoërskool (Northern KZN Regional), St Anne’s (PMB North Regional), Epworth School (PMB Central Regional), Durban Girls’ College (DBN Central Regional), Amanzimtoti High School (DBN South Regional), and Our Lady of Fatima (DBN North Regional).

He told me my condition had come to the point where I can no longer survive without a pump.” Ngcungama says she refused to use the pump and in 2010 she started exercising, taking walks and participating in runs in order to keep her lungs active. “I joined South Coast striders in 2014 and entered the Sardine Run. From then I have never had any complications. I actually challenged myself and took part in the 21 km run which I finished in just over two hours and I was fine.” “From there on I started believing that keeping fit is healthy and it beats my condition.” Ncungama said she also had a nose bleeding problem when she was young, ever since she started running her nose has never bled. She has gone to the extreme of participating in marathons even when she was pregnant. “In 2016 I was pregnant and at five months I participated in a marathon. Two weeks after I took part in the

These are the words of athlete Nombuso Ngcungama of Wild Coast Athletics Club from Gcilima who was born asthmatic and was dependant on Amoxycillin (Moxypen), an antibiotic which helps the body fight off bacterial infections, and nebulising for most of her childhood, avoiding asthma attacks. Ngcungama said in her young age her asthma was triggered when the weather changed. “My chest would get so tight and I would panic. My mother would rush me to the clinic, where I was nebulised and given the antibiotic. As the years passed it got worse to the point where I was hospitalised and the doctors told me I had to start using an asthma pump. I refused and questioned the doctor if there was any alter-
