This year South Africans voted hoping for the best – many are now glued to the parliament ses­ sion coverage because you never know what to ex­ pect. In 2015 we will be joining the queues for the by­elections  and  once  again,  hoping  for  positive change.

Alleged  Underberg  farm  attackers  arrested THE KZN acting provincial commissioner, Major General Bheki Langa commended SAPS members who were involved in tracing the suspects that are allegedly linked to the recent Underberg farm attacks. Last Friday police arrested three suspects allegedly involved with the attacks in the Bulwer area. The suspects were found in pos-

session of stolen property that was taken from the home of a 79-yearold farmer who was attacked in Underberg. On February 1, Gavin Carter (46), was asleep at his West Isley farm home in Underberg when he was attacked. He was shot several times and died instantly. Another farmer Trevor Charls Rees (79) was attacked and killed. He was at his Pudsay farm, in Himeville on 3 February when he was approached by the suspects. It is alleged that the suspects tied him up, assaulted him, shot him and then took off Ford Ranger bakkie and money. He died on 4 February. His vehicle was found abandoned in Pietermaritzburg area. “Through hard work by Himeville police officers, assisted by local farmers and security companies, a breakthrough was made when the suspects were arrested in the Bulwer area. The suspects are linked to both farm attacks and investigations are continuing,” said SAPS spokesperson, LieutenantColonel Thulani Zwane. The suspects appeared in court on Monday and the case was postponed to next Monday. - Supplied.

SAPS  union  calls  for  security  of  police  officers FEVER  REPORTER THE federation of Police and Prison Civil Rights Union (Popcru) is calling for the protection of police officers when they respond to crime scenes. The Eastern Cape Popcru provincial chairperson, Loyiso Mdingi, condemned the recent murder of Constable Siyabulela Qwanti (28), who was shot dead while responding to a crime at Katkop near Mount Fletcher on 9 February. Qwanti and seven police members were searching for illegal firearms in the home of a local man. “Police were tipped off that the man had an illegal firearm. When police knocked on his door he opened fire and injured two officers. Other officers returned fire

and the man was killed instantly,” said SAPS spokesperson, Raphael Motloung. An illegal firearm Z88, 23 cartridges and projectiles were found in the house. Qwanti was rushed to the Nelson Mandela Academic Hospital in Mthatha and later died. Another 27-year-old constable was injured and taken to Margate Hospital. Mdingi asked the community to help protect the police. “Community members must identify criminals and work with community policing forums to fight crime. Some police officers are not well equipped to carry out certain duties and government must make sure they are equipped and protected.” Funeral arrangements are to be announced soon.

We ask community members to protect municipal property.”

AmaMpondomise  lay  claim  to  Kokstad SIPHELELE  NKETO LAST Friday, traditional leaders from the AmaMpondomise nation and their king, Zanozuko Matiwane from Qumbu, held a meeting at Kokstad Town Hall where they claimed to be the legitimate owners of Kokstad land. Chairperson of AmaMpondomise Peter Madasa said the purpose of the meeting was for AmaMpondomise from different areas to get know each other. “History tells that Kokstad is our land,” said Madasa. “Government boundaries have caused many problems especially here. Kokstad was demarcated under KwaZulu-Natal, but, the area belongs to us and we can produce evidence,” he said. Other traditional leaders from amaXesibe, Sotho and Griqua nation attended the meeting. Chairperson of the Griqua Traditional Council, Gabriel Marais said he wants the truth about the ownership of the area. AmaMpondomise also said they want their kingship to be recognised by government. Madasa said the government has rejected their claim for years after they asked for it to be restored after being taken away many years ago.

SIPHELELE  NKETO Siphelele@media24.com ON Monday afternoon a huge hailstorm flooded rivers and damaged many cars in Kokstad. The bridge that connects Coulter Street to the CBD and Bongweni Township was under water and people spent hours trying to get across after the storm had passed, but the water was too fastmoving. A Horseshoe resident, Victor Ngcaweni said water flooded his RDP house and even wet his

bed and furniture. “My bed and sofas are wet and I am now sleeping at my neighbour’s house.” Another community member, Mawethu Nocanda blamed municipality for not putting in drains in the area. The Greater Kokstad Municipal spokesperson Sabelo Ncwane said the only serious cases reported were about trees that had fallen down in some areas. SAPS spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ncongo warned people not to cross raging rivers.

ATATIELE artist, Reabetswe Motsati, known as Reeh, is to release his new album, Ndiyabonga, in April. The 24-year-old, who was born in kwaNkawu village in Matat, sings Afro-soul and has already released a single. “I have performed at many events, including weddings, church and government events. It was a privilege to perform my favourite songs at the Matatiele Music Festival last year and I am looking forward to perform-

ing at more events.” His music has been aired on local and national radio stations. His manager Thabo Thene, who has produced artists Lilitha Bidla and Bathandwa Vazi, said Motsati’s talent says he will go far in the music industry. “Bidla and Vazi were nominees at last year’s South African Traditional Music Awards. Young people in Matatiele are talented and I am going to make sure they reach their destination.” Motsati’s album is recorded by Eastern Cape Music recording company.

Pupils  doing  an  activity. RESPECT, integrity, duty, humility and culture are some of the principles that St Monica’s School pupils were focusing on at a leadership camp at Cedarberg Guest Farm recently. The school thanks Gerrie Nel and his staff for their support at the camp. St Monica’s believes in developing pupils as

young leaders in order to influence their communities. “We believe in moulding healthy and well balanced young individuals with the support of parents, staff and pupils,” said Zane Enslin from the school. - Supplied.

ANDILE  VELEM MUNICIPAL  MANAGER

GKM VIEWPOINT GREETINGS to the people of Kokstad. Extension  7  roads The community of Extension 7 have been driving in very difficult road conditions for a long time. The municipality has been trying to resolve the issue. It is a good thing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. As I speak the project is at the last stages of the supply chain process and by the end of this month there should be an appointed contractor. I am pushing the SCM Unit to finalise every process correctly, and according to legislation, to ensure that by April the contractor is on site. As an acting accounting officer, I cannot wait to see a completion certificate handed to the contractor and a completed road handed to the community. We hope the process is completed within a reasonable time for the sake of the community. Council has made it clear that they are not waiting for any excuse from me. I have adopted the same principle for the managers accountable to me with regards to this project. I am happy for the people of Extension 7 and I will be happier after we have introduced the contractor to the community.

Electrification  of  Wansberg The mayor of Greater Kokstad Municipality Cllr B.M. Mtolo introduced the contractor that will do the electrification of Wansberg on 12 February. They have promised the municipality they will complete the project in three months time from this week. This community has also been facing an electricity challenge for a long time and I am happy that government has delivered to the people of Wansberg. The contractor has committed to employ 10 local people during construction, a security guard and one community liaison officer. I will urge those who are employed to make sure they learn a skill during this time because life goes on after the project. We always urge our service providers to make sure that the skill is transferred to local people. I thank God that no major incidents were reported to my office after the severe storm in Kokstad on Monday. Sisonke siyaqhubeka nokuphuhlisa iKokstad. Siyaqhuba enkosi.

I AM currently employed by the state and I consider myself a very dedicated employee. I take pride in serving the people of the country, but nothing gets under my skin more than when someone, a member of the public, chooses to invoke his religion or religious beliefs at my place of employment. Firstly, I have taken my time to serve you and you think I am not clean enough to serve you just because I am male. I take offence to such. In my book, the invocation of your religious beliefs under the above-mentioned circumstances smacks of tyranny, ungratefulness and conceit. In my book, it is a violation of my goodheartedness. I feel discriminated against whenever this scenario presents itself. Secondly, in my culture, a male my age is

not allowed to touch a woman who is old enough to be his mother. Can you imagine what would happen if I were to start invoking my cultural beliefs at my place of employment? I would lose my job. Imagine what would happen if every elderly woman was to refuse my help citing her cultural beliefs? The system would crash and service delivery would come to a standstill. How is it that some of us can compromise on our beliefs, be they religious or cultural, yet some members of the community refuse to return the favour? I have stated the context under which my concern emanates, therefore I do not expect to be misunderstood. Public  Servant

HE management, staff and pupils of King Edward High School would like to commend the Matatiele Municipality as there has been a marked improvement in the upkeep of the municipal pool and major infrastructural improvements. We now have a public facility to make us proud. Furthermore, we are grateful to the municipality for their generosity in the matric awards ceremony - it certainly motivates our pupils and staff to perform even better. KEHS pupils selected for district teams Congratulations to the following girls who made the Sisonke U14 girls’ hockey team - Rebecca de Burgh, Amandla Kulu, Sibusisiwe Madikizela and Paballo Thabana.

Tristan Phizacklea and Eathan Phizacklea were selected for the U13 Sisonke tennis team. Tristan and Neo Khoatane were selected for the South Coast tennis team while Eathan Phizacklea is the nontravelling reserve. Well done, boys. KEHS at State of the Province Address On February 9, Michael Jacobs and Lelethu Nontwana competed in the local round of the State of the Province Address public speaking competition. Michael, competing in the English First Additional Language section, spoke confidently and fluently, but was unable to take a top three position. Lelethu’s speech was well researched and she easily outclassed her competitors, taking first place in

her category. She will advance to the Eastern Cape provincial finals in Bisho in March. KEHS tennis at Kokstad College On February 9, the King Edward High School tennis team competed against Kokstad College at the Kokstad Tennis Club. KEHS started well, winning three of their four matches in the first two rounds. They didn’t stop there and won all their matches in the last two rounds, resulting in a 74-37 win for King Edward. KEHS first cricket victory King Edward’s first cricket team played at King Edward Park against Suid-Natal High on February 11. After losing the toss, KEHS went in to bat, scoring 201 runs for the loss of six

wickets in the allotted 40 overs. Kaden Duminy, Yusuf Surti and Arnoldo Terblanche were the batsman to note, scoring 42, 38 and 35 runs respectively. Suid-Natal scored 75 runs all out. KEHS therefore won the match by a resounding 126 runs. The KEHS bowlers were outstanding, with Jonty van der Merwe taking three wickets and Kaden Duminy and Arnoldo Terblanche taking two wickets each. KEHS swimmers shine at Sisonke and St Patricks The King Edward High swimming team took part in the high schools swimming gala at St Patricks on February 10 where they did very well. Carla de Wet was the U15 girls runner-up with Ethan Duminy the run-

ner-up for the U15 boys. Emmanuel van Jaarsveld was the best U16 boy while Stephan Terblanche was runner-up. The King Edward boys won the boys section and the King Edward swimming team took an overall second place at the gala. Congratulations and thank you to St Patricks for hosting a well organised gala. The King Edward Primary swimming team took part in the SP Sisonke swimming gala at Kokstad Junior School on February 11. Caleb Sweetnam (U9) and Zandri Jacobs (U12) were winners in their respective age groups. Thank you to Kokstad Junior for hosting such a great event.
