MANY people either look forward to the festive pe­ riod and begin their countdown to Christmas in Oc­ tober, while others are left running for the hills to avoid  the  ‘silliness’  that  comes  with  the  season. As we get ready to wind down and take a breath­ er, we decided to reflect on some of the wonderful reasons  to  celebrate  the  year  that  was. Yes,  we  can  talk  about  some  of  the  lowlights as well (no pun on the word ‘lights’), but that would not  be  very  festive  at  all. The team at the Fever has had a wonderful year and has shared some truly remarkable memories with  you.  We’ve had an action­packed year from meeting wonderful  individuals  who  are  slowly  changing their communities one step at a time to covering campaigns that shows a proactive community who are willing to fight for their beloved home towns. To those people who are continuously going the

extra mile to serve others, we would like to salute you and thank you for allowing us to share your sto­ ries. 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. We know we live in a beautiful city and another reason to be a proud Durbanite is Durban has been voted  an  official  new  Seven  Wonder  City  of  the world.  The  picturesque  beaches,  rolling  hills  and breath­taking skyline together with a host of won­ derful  inhabitants,  sets  us  apart  from  the  rest  of South  Africa. After  40  years,  the  Miss  World  title  is  held  by a  South  African.

Through the difficult times, our readers have once again proven that we are, without a doubt, among the most resilient and strong-willed. We have weathered all the storms that came our way and have demonstrated that we can be a community to be proud of - from our disabled horse rider achieving his goals to a local woman beating breast cancer and becoming an inspiration to others - our community stands together proud!

South Africans also took time through out the year to remember Nelson Mandela and do their bit to  fulfill  his  legacy.  It’s been a year since his death and many ques­ tioned the stability and patriotism of South Afri­ cans.  The good news is, it seems as if communities are  now  more  united  than  ever.  Many  believe  his spirit still lives on calling it a sprinkling of ‘Madiba magic’.

Dear Readers, TODAY marks the end of another year for the Hillcrest Fever, and as the festivities kick off for this season, let us reflect on moments that touched our lives and the community this past year. 2014 has been marked by persistent challenges in our economy with price inflations (food, electricity, fuel, etc.). We had weather catastrophes and crime

own challenges this year, but as we enter 2015 we renew our pledge to you to do our very best to continue to be the most accurate, fair and balanced source of news, opinion, features, sports and entertainment in the Upper Highway Area. We will continue to be open and honest with our readers and we assure you that the new year will be one never to be forgotten. Our hearts go out to those who lost loved ones this year and those experiencing difficulties of all types this holiday season. We extend sincere and warm wishes to our Hillcrest Fever family for a safe and peaceful festive season, and a happy and prosperous 2015. Kalisha Naicker Senior  Journalist Hillcrest  Fever

>> Greater Edendale Mall guard lucky to have narrowly escaped a single bullet shot off while wrestling a detained suspect NOKUTHULA  KHANYILE >>nokuthula.khanyile@media24.com

REATER Edendale Mall (GEM) was in a state if lockdown on Saturday after a security guard was shot following a wrestle with a suspected mugger. Speaking to the Maritzburg Echo from his bed at Medi-Clinic on Tuesday afternoon, 51-year-old Sipho Phungula, who has been employed at GEM for about three years, said he was lucky to have narrowly escaped the jaws of death. “It all started when two guys robbed this lady who works at Pick n Pay last week and they stole her bag which had her work uniform inside. They

wanted to use that uniform to moonlight and pretend they were working for Pick n Pay so that they could steal from the store. “On Saturday the lady recognised the guys at the mall and alerted security. We handcuffed the two suspects and took them to the control room where they are usually kept until the police arrive,” said Phungula, who was wounded by a single bullet above his collarbone on the left side of his chest. “One of the guys who was doing an activation inside the mall that day went to the control room to leave his belongings and came back to alert me that the suspect had managed to release himself from his handcuffs. I went to check up on the sus-

pect but he looked like he was still cuffed. “As I turned around to leave the control room where he was being kept, he attacked me from behind. I tried to put up a fight but he managed to disarm me and that’s when he fired the single bullet and escaped.” “I managed to run to the nearest room and told the control room operator that I had just been shot by the suspect. The operator called for backup but the suspect escaped through the City Max clothing shop, taking my work firearm with him.” Phungula admitted that he was grateful to be alive but remained in a lot of pain and demanded that his assailant be arrested and dealt with severely.

Sipho Phungula,  a  security  guard  at  Greater  Edendale  Mall,  is  recovering  in  hospital              following  being  shot  while  wrestling  with  a  suspected  mugger  on  Saturday.

“I think he was aiming for my head but he missed. I am really lucky to be alive. I was bleeding profusely and had blood gushing out of my mouth, my nose and my ears. In that moment I thought I was dying. “Fortunately the doctors operated on me yesterday [Monday] and managed to take out the bullet which was lodged in my stomach.” GEM Marketing manager Sonya Caldecott expressed her shock at the incident, saying that the shopping centre went “above and beyond” to ensure the safety of both personnel and patrons at the mall. She added that criminal charges had already been opened against the suspect and every measure would be taken to prevent similar incidents in

the future. “We are glad our security guard is in a stable condition. Greater Edendale Mall treats the safety of our tenants and patrons with the highest of priority, with this being an isolated incident. We have confidence that the police will arrest the suspect soon.” Head of security at GEM Gerald Mchunu said they were offering a cash reward to anyone that may assist with information to help recover the stolen firearm. Plessislaer Police spokesperson Captain Musa Ntombela confirmed that a case has been opened against the alleged assailant. “Police are investigating a case of attempted murder and robbery of firearm,” said Ntombela.

Losomabhizinisi uthe wenza lokhu njengendlela yokubonga ubukhosi bakwaZondi ngokumsingatha ngesikhathi eshonelwa abazali esenza ibanga lokuqala. “Ngonyaka ka 1978 ngazithuka sengisele ngedwa ekhaya, amathuna esegcwele insimi abazali bobabili sebeshonile. Ngathi uma ngithathwa izinduna zingisa enkosini uZondi yafike yakhuluma isibusiso phezu kwempilo yami yangitshela ukuthi ngiyoba umholi ngelinye ilanga. Uku-

USibiya uthe ngokusebenzisana nenhlangano yamatekisi i-South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) ube esesika iphethini njengoba minyaka yonke iba nohlelo lokunikelela abafundi ngomfaniswano wesikole. “Ngathi uma ngiqala ukusebenza neSantaco ngawuthanda umsebenzi wabo wokunikelela umphakathi.

Ukunikelela abafundi abahlwempu ngibone kuyiyonandlela engingabonga ngayo kumaMpumuza ngokungisingatha kade ngisabhekene nobunzima.” Losomabhizinisi uthembise ukuthi loluhlelo lokunikelela abafundi sekuzoba yinto azozibophezela ukuyenza minyaka yonke.

EEDING to the call by ex-convicts, who have a difficult time finding employment once out of prison, Msunduzi Municipality has initiated a programme to help reintegrate them back into society through skills and entrepreneurial programmes. This special project was officially launched on Monday and will be the first of many to assist ex-offenders with numerous projects like community gardens, sewing projects, school mentorship programmes and a human settlements building programme. Basil Mthethwa, a convicted criminal also set to benefit from the project, was released from prison a few years ago fearing the worst. But today, a few years after completing his 20-year sentence, Mthethwa is using the sewing skill he acquired while serving time to make a living. After getting out of prison Mthethwa said he worried about finding a job because of his criminal record. “I decided to put my sewing skill to good use and started a clothing business. I registered my company in 2012, and employed four people,” he said. “In July last year I made enough money and purchased a van, but unfortunately it got hijacked in Pongola on the way to deliver stock. I owed a loan shark money and he took all my industrial machines and I had to start from scratch with the business.” Mthethwa said losing his business almost caused him to relapse and return to a life of crime, but he moved away from Mpangeni and came to Pietermaritzburg in January. He said he was grateful for the project because it has helped him and others to re-establish themselves so they can put food on the table for their loved ones. Speaking on behalf of the office of the mayor, Sphamandla Khumalo said the project was also initiated to create a crime-free city. “Through the experiences of the past you have learnt the hard way and you know the consequences of crime. “You are the best candidates to work with to be the champions in our fight against crime in our city. “We are trying to create a crime-free Pietermaritzburg, but what we would like to see from all of you is the display of trust, honesty and respect. “We believe you can reform, that is why we are engaging with you through this broader plan of creating a safe city and creating opportunities for all of you.” Khumalo said the municipality was aware of the uphill struggle ex-offenders faced. “Not getting employment leads you to relapse and go back to a life of crime. You continue to confront prejudice, you are sidelined and ignored in the bigger scale of things. “No matter what you try, you remain engaged in a constant battle to make your voices heard. “The municipality wants to use the talent you have and incorporate it into the bigger stream of society,” he said.

RIMINALS will soon have nowhere to hide when a contingent of undercover police officers take to the streets in the CBD in a bid to stamp out crime. The focus will be on the Ematsheni area, which is now occupied by vagrants and alleged whoonga smokers. Following their eviction from the Ematsheni beer hall in December last year, vagrants have

opted to occupy the pavements outside buildings along Hoosen Haffejee Street in the Ematsheni area, upsetting local residents and business owners. It is alleged that the vagrants smoke, sell and buy whoonga and other drugs in plain sight. A man who has been living in a building on Hoosen Haffejee Street for over 70 years said he has never seen the streets in such an appalling condition. “There are over 100 people who litter, smoke, deal and urinate on the street,” he said. The man added that the street used to smell

Vather’s Garage, which is located on Hoosen Haffejee Street opposite the Ematsheni taxi rank, has decided to erect a metal fence and a gate in a bid to keep out the vagrants. A week ago a crowd of vagrants were photographed gathered on the pavement outside the garage. Ameen Aniff, the owner of Auto and General Supplies, which is also located on Hoosen Haffejee Street, said the presence of the vagrants is making his customers uncomfortable. “Our customers fear that they will get robbed,” Aniff said. uMgungundlovu South Cluster police commander Major-General Phumelele Makhoba said the issue of the Ematsheni area is being addressed. “In dealing with the people in the Ematsheni

area we should consider freedom of association as well as freedom of movement,” Makhoba said. “That is what makes it difficult for the police to intervene, as most as these vagrants are just sitting on the pavements, which is not a crime,” she said. However, Makhoba added that a number of undercover police officers will be deployed to patrol the area in an attempt to stamp out all criminal activity. “The officers will deal with the people who sell and smoke whoonga and other drugs,” she said. Makhoba added that addressing the issue of the vagrants requires input from a number of stakeholders. “The police are working with the Department of Health, the Department of Social Development, the office of the mayor, Safe City and local business owners that operate in the Ematsheni area,” she said. “We can’t just throw all of [the vagrants] in jail as attempts to rehabilitate these people also need to be made.” Makhoba assured people that uMgungundlovu South Cluster has good rela-

tionships with the various stakeholders. As an example, she said there are police officers stationed at Safe City 24 hours a day. “The officers are there in anticipation of any incident that could happen,” Makhoba said. She added that all the mentioned stakeholders are in the process of finding a way to address the issue of the vagrants. Furthermore, Makhoba warned that members of the public should be careful when they are on the streets. “People must avoid talking on their cellphones or carrying large amounts of cash when walking in the street,” she said. The police head also warned motorists about driving with their windows open and leaving valuable objects in plain sight that could attract robbers. “Residents also need to play their part in applying their own safety measures” Makhoba said.

IGHER Education and Training Minister Blade Nzimande has warned of the complete demise of public higher education system should student protests persist. Nzimande said if the situation gets to that, it will be the poor students who will suffer the most. He was speaking after visiting the uMgungundlovu Tvet College’s Midlands Campus as part of his oversight mandate on higher education institutions. He said rich parents had already started sending their children to overseas institutions and local private tertiary institutions. “When our public system is destroyed, private universities are going to come in. Poor students are not going to afford these. “They will only afford fly by night [institutions] which will be of bad quality, which is what

has happened in many African countries.” Nzimande said the private university system will be problematic and would not be accessible to the poor. He said there would also be more fly-by-night institutions providing poor education. Nzimande said the department was engaging vice-chancellors, students, workers and communities around the issue of the necessity to protect the country’s institutions. “We have also asked universities to put security measures in place to protect property and life.” He said he had seen close to R1 billion in damage to university property, money that could have been used to fund poor students but would be used to repair damage done by students. Nzimande said he had got the chance to meet with management, council and student leaders at the Midlands Campus where issues affecting the college were raised. “One of the things for in-

stance, is that of the results that should come out on time and certificates. You cannot pass and then not get the certificate.” He said government was attending the matter and would make sure the results are released on time. SRC president Noluthando Hlubi described the meeting as “progressive”. “It helped. We raised issues with the minister.” She said they were promised some of the pending results would be released by Friday and said some results had already started coming out. “We got commitment that all those certificates dating from 2012 to 2016 will be issued by March this year.” Hlubi said the students continued to face challenges with NSFAS payments. “They do payments late. At this college, we only received NSFAS payments in January. It was supposed to cover our transport and accommodation fees last year,” she said.

INISTER of Higher Education and Training (DHET) Blade Nzimande has reiterated government’s commitment to finding long-term solutions to the education crisis that has gripped South Africa. During his visit to Umgungundlovu Tvet College, Midlands campus on Monday where he was locked in a three-hour, closed-door meeting with college management, students and worker leadership, Nzimande assured NSFAS-funded students who owe money they will be allowed to register. “The immediate short-term demand is on how to resolve 2017 student fees. There is no owing NSFAS student who will not go back to a college or university, government will cover those costs,” he said. Nzimande said the visit to Pietermaritzburg was part of his oversight mandate on higher education institutions to ensure a seamless start of the academic year. “It is part of my oversight mandate as the minister to visit selected institutions at this time of the year, just to come and check how things are going overall. I monitor how registration is going, the challenges facing the institutions in terms of their own administrative arrangements, issue on NSFAS and what is the nature of all those issues.” Addressing some of the pressing issues pertaining to Tvet college students, like the delay of results and certificates, Nzimande said the department was working at “ironing out” those challenges. “We are aware that Tvet colleges have a perpetual challenge of results as well as certificates that should come out on time, which we agree with as the

‘Fee­owing’ students  can  still  register >> Government will cover costs,  students told after meeting department. You can’t pass and then not get a certificate. We have our own challenges in government in this regard, which we are attending to ensure we address this problem once and for all.” Addressing students’ violent protests, he said the department was sitting at close to R1 billion worth of damage of university property. Referring to the arrest of Bongani Khanyile, the last remaining #FeesMustFall protester still behind bars, Nzimande said he cannot assist in that regard. “That’s the responsibility of the court, as a minister there’s very little, if anything at all, that I do to assist him. It’s not nice seeing students being arrested, but if they are being charged for serious crimes they must face the music. “We have kids redirecting money that we could be using to assist poor students now having to rebuild buildings that we already have. If you are facing charges of that nature, it’s before the court and the court must decide. There is nothing I can do.” Should the violent student protests erupt again, Nzimande said they have increased security at all institutions of higher learning. “We must ensure that when there are protests public property doesn’t get damaged, so [we] have put security

Umgungundlovu Tvet College SRC president Noluthando Hlubi said as student leadership they are happy with the outcome of the meeting. “The meeting with the minister was very progressive it helped us as the SRC to raise some of the issues we are facing as an institution. “The agreement we reached was that all students will receive their certificates dating back to 2012 at the end of March. Another challenge was that NSFAS doesn’t pay us monthly, we get told government doesn’t have money, the minister also promised to address that issue,” she said.

URVIVING members of the family of four who were killed at Richmond at the weekend are still traumatised by the tragedy. On Saturday evening, four family members, including a child, were gunned down in Ndaleni, Richmond. They were Cecilia Chiliza (69), Dumisani Chiliza (49), Nkosikhona Masango (25) and 11-year-old Noxolo Dawood. A four-year-old boy, whose name has not been released, was still in hospital recovering from a gunshot wound to his buttocks. Family member Quinton Dawood said that he was in Pietermaritzburg at the Harry Gwala Stadium watching a soccer match when he received a call from frantic neighbours urging him to abandon the game and come home. “No one would tell me anything over the phone. I was in such a panic and started imagining all sorts of things. What I saw when I got home was beyond what I had imagined, four relatives of mine were lying dead on the floor,” said Dawood. The victims were his grandmother, uncle, cousin and niece. Dawood said he was the breadwinner at home. He said his family had been preparing for a small ceremony when they were attacked. He said he was told that seven members of his family were sitting in their rondavel when they heard two loud bangs on the door and unknown men came in and started shooting. One of the survivors managed to roll under the bed and hid from the attackers, said Dawood. He added that his seven-year-old son, who was also in the room and was reportedly sleeping when the attack happened, was not hurt.

Gogo Cecilia  Chiliza  (69)  was  one  of  the  family  members  who  was  shot  dead  by  the  unknown  men  who  attacked  the  Dawood  home  on  Saturday evening.

Nkosikhona Masango  (25)  was  one  of  the  four  family  members  shot  dead.

Dumisani Dawood  (49)  was  also  shot  dead  in  the  attack.

KZN MEC  for  Transport,  Community  Safety  and  Liaison,  Mxolisi  Kaunda,  vi­ sited  the  Dawood  family  in  Richmond.

“They killed almost my entire family. I am so hurt and still speechless from the shock,” said a distraught Dawood. He said he could not think of anyone who would want to kill him or his family and said he would wait for the

police investigations to reveal “the heartless killers”. Dawood said a mass family funeral will be held on Saturday at the local sports ground. Police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele said no arrests have

been made as yet but confirmed that police are working on a “strong lead”. KZN MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison Mxolisi Kaunda visited the Dawood family in Richmond on Monday. He urged the community to help the police bring the

N an effort to improve matric results, Gr8 Impact Lifestyle, a community based organisation has partnered with six Imbali schools and will run an outreach extra lessons programme to assist pupils. The programme provides extra lessons, either after school or on Saturdays, in all subjects for pupils in Grade 11 and Grade 12 and will be taught by professionals in their field. Gr8 Impact Lifestyle’s project co-ordinator Sandile Shange said they decided to partner with the Imbali Alumni Association, which had already started initiating these extra lessons from last year. “We got involved because we recognise this programme will improve pupils’ marks and help them understand their subjects better. We didn’t want to reinvent the wheel, rather we want to support what successful projects exist by partnering with the association that already provides academic support.”

Shange said they will have professionals who will teach pupils while also providing career guidance and helping prepare them for the tertiary education environment. Founder of Gr8 Impact Lifestyle, Thobekile Ndlovu, said this project is their way of giving back to the community and opening a platform for leaders to emerge. “We felt there was a gap in the education system especially in African schools where not enough career guidance is offered. The lessons will be adding on what the schools are doing. We will be working according to the schools’ syllabus. The aim is to help them make wise career choices and also boost their marks to enter university.” Ndlovu said the extra lessons will provide a relaxed environment where pupils will engage with the subject advisers on difficult subjects. “We hope this intervention will prove to be as successful as we wish it to be and that we will make a meaningful impact in the education system with the time and dedication we’ll put in.”

Postal chaos THE  state  of  the  post  office  in  Chatsworth  is  an utter  disgrace. When  I  went  to  buy  an  envelope  for  courier posting, none of the tellers had one. Eventually the postmistress  found  one.  There is not a single stamp in the whole post office.  How  can  we  post  our  letters? In this terrible heat, the air conditioners were broken  and  had  not  been  working  for  months.  If you want to see how South Africa is doing, check your  local  post  office.

HE Pietermaritzburg branch of the Association for the Physically Challenged is giving new hope to physically challenged persons who cannot work in the open labour market by offering them employment. The branch is running the Abercare Protective Employment Work centre which offers experience and skills for people with physical disabilities. Speaking to the Maritzburg Echo about the project, Social Work manager Diane Singh said that many people with disabilities who could not complete their schooling for different reasons have a hard time securing employment. “We have sheltered employment for people with disabilities who cannot function in the open labour market because, perhaps, they are slower with one only hand or they’ve suffered a stroke and have limited use of an arm or a leg. “Although there is legislation that says at least two percent of the work force should be people with disabilities, all companies, and even government departments, don’t keep to that. They only consider people with “mild” disabilities.” Singh said the significance of empowering the disabled unemployed is a vital need in society. “It’s quite difficult for people who are moderately disabled to find employment. The other issue around employment for people with disabilities is that many of them could not complete schooling. Unfortunately our schooling system is a challenge. Usually special needs schools are far away from where the

New hope  for  physically  challenged person lives, families are reluctant to send their children to boarding facilities or there is no boarding facility and families have to pay large amounts to transport their children.” She said the results of that is adults in their 20s and 40s whose level of education is minimal. Singh said the association has contracts from various companies and the clients who join the workshops do simple tasks and get paid a minimal amount for it. “Transport is provided for some clients depending on the area and the workshops are from Monday to Friday.” There is a screening process for clients wishing to apply. They must have a medical certificate from a doctor confirming the type of disability they have. The workshops accommodate a total of 50 to 60 people between the ages of 18 to 59. Singh said the idea behind opening the centre was for physically disabled people to get used to the work environment and then move to being self-employed or find another job. For more information the association can be contacted on 033 342 2768.

Project Dignity  visits  Newton  school  PROJECT Dignity visited Newton Pre­Vocation­ al School in Pietermaritzburg last Thursday to distribute  160  packs  of  menstrual management  kits  to  the  girls. This was done after a donation by One Life Church  following  the  Sparkle  Conference which made it possible for Project Dignity and its  partner  Subz  to  distribute  the  packs.  The  girls  were  receptive  to  the  talks  on menstruation  and  puberty  and  asked  many questions.  Mooi  Mthethwa  gave  the  girls advice  on  the  importance  of  looking  after themselves  and  their  bodies.  Each young girl received a Subz pants and pads  menstrual  management  kit,  which included two pairs of panties and six reusable sanitary pads that will last the girls for the next three  to  five  years. The non­profit extension of Subz Pants and Pads, Project Dignity, seeks to improve the lives of  school­going  girls  by  donating  sponsored packs  of  reusable,  eco­friendly  sanitary  pads and  accompanying  panties.  The  organisation  was  established  after founder, Sue Barnes, learnt about the negative educational impact a lack of sanitary products has  on  thousands  of  school  children.  Financial  limitations  mean  there  are  no funds  for  sanitary  pads  so  girls  miss  school during  menstruation. Project Dignity has done numerous activa­ tions  in  both  KwaZulu­Natal,  and  across  the country,  whereby  donations  are  made  and talks  given  on  a  number  of  issues  affecting young  women,  particularly  in  rural  areas.  Developed, designed and manufactured by Barnes, the Subz pads are made of five layers of  hydrophilic  fabric  making  them  extremely absorbent  to  prevent  leakage.  Together  with the  100%  cotton  panties,  they  are  patented and  have  a  SABS  absorbency  approval. “For  some  of  them,  their  education  is interrupted  for  25  percent  of  the  school year,” explained Barnes. “Any spare money the family has is spent on food rather than sanitary products.”  ­  Supplied.

LUCKY KHANYILE

C

ATTLE owners have again been warned to stop allowing their cattle to roam the streets or face prosecution. It’s a growing problem with mounting concerns about the “free-range” cattle on roads posing a danger to those in cars and on motorbikes. A Boughton resident who asked not to be named said he had recently moved to the area and was worried about livestock roaming around roads there day and night — sometimes in the area’s thick mist — unattended. Pound master Bruce Mattison said that they are called out almost every day to impound cattle. “This is an issue. Msunduzi Traffic Department should deal with the animals once they get into or around town. We try and help where we can as much as possible,” he said. Mattison said cattle owners are obliged to pay R60 for every day their cattle spend in the pound. A resident of Prestbury said there is a large black bull that often stands in their road. “It’s so hard to see it at night. It’s really dangerous. We are worried we could hit it with disastrous results.” The African Farmers’ Association

Concern over  cattle  roaming  round  city of South Africa (Afasa), which aims to commercialise the developing agricultural sector, feels some small scale farmers are either ignorant or uneducated about taking care of their livestock. Provincial secretary Thubelihle Zondi said cattle roaming around contribute to stock theft in the province, which has been an ongoing issue. “It is worrying and disheartening to see animals on the streets. When we see the cattle we try and locate owners through local committees. “But most of the cattle are not even branded, which makes it difficult to link them to their rightful owners. We urge cattle owners to look after their livestock. “However, bylaws need to play their role — they must be tightened.” He equated the loss of a cow to the loss of R10 000. Zondi said Afasa was planning to approach commercial farmers to assist developing farmers to teach them how to take care of the livestock and ensure their safety. The issue of cattle roaming on the N3 has also been raised.

N3 Toll Concession revealed that roaming cattle have indeed caused accidents on the highway. N3TC’s Con Roux said the presence of cattle on the N3 was not a frequent occurrence. “What helps is that we do route patrols to monitor anything that might obstruct traffic. “We usually call for the cattle to be

impounded. The community and cattle owners have a responsibility to ensure that we avoid destruction on the highway.” Roux urged motorists to reduce speed, especially after dark, as it might be difficult to see animals wandering around. Municipal spokesperson Thobeka Mafumbatha said according to the

Cattle roam  freely on  the  corner  of  Mbubu  and  Thorpe  Lane  in  Boughton.  PHOTO:  SUPPLIED

city’s bylaws, people are not allowed to “turn loose or allow to wander in any street or public place, any horse, cattle, donkey, pig, sheep or goat”, and any animal found, may be impounded. She said anyone who contravenes or fails to comply with the bylaw or any notice issued will be guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to pay a fine.

No medics  for  Slangspruit SABELO  NSELE PARAMEDICS from KwaZulu-Natal’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) described their fear when they were attacked in the Slangspruit area in Pietermaritzburg at the weekend.

Nobody knows what became of the pregnant woman who had called them for help because the paramedics were too afraid to go back there. She had called again after the attack on the ambulance, to say she was still at the scene and needed assistance.

The paramedics, who asked not to be named, said they could not continue working after they were attacked while responding to a maternity call in Slangspruit on Saturday night at around 11 pm. The two said they are not sure how they will cope when they have to report for duty again after Saturday’s ordeal. The female paramedic said when they arrived at the scene to which they had been summoned, they found no one there. “We phoned the control centre to tell them we could not find the patient. While we were still waiting, four men and a woman approached us. “One of them banged on the window and told us to open the ambulance. He said he was sick,” she said. She said while the five were still surrounding the ambulance, a man and woman also approached the ambulance. “The man looked unstable; it looked like he had been drinking. The area is also busy, and it looks like there is a shebeen around. “The other man also started banging the window but the woman told him to stop and he eventually did. They went across the road.” The paramedic said at that time, the four men who had first approached the ambulance were getting violent and started hurling insults at the paramedics. “All of them had dreadlocks. They told us that we are government employees and said we must open the door. They asked us if we are not wary of the fact that we were in ‘Slang’. “The one who had gone across the road eventually came back when things started heating up. One of them climbed onto the roof of the ambulance and hit the windscreen with his fist. “I then started revving the ambulance. The others got out of the way, but the one on the roof of the ambulance stayed there.”

She said she eventually managed to drive away with one man hanging onto the windscreen wipers. “He started trying to block my view and I could not see properly. At the robot, the cars started hooting at me and I stopped in the middle of the road. “Other motorists asked me what was wrong and I told them the story. When he tried to escape, the other motorists ran after him and they beat him up,” she said. They then put him into the ambulance and the paramedics drove to Alexandra Road police station. She said it was the first time she had come under threat since she had become a paramedic. “Usually we do get insults when we go out, but not violence. I am now scared, especially to respond to night operations,” she said. While they were back at the base, she said the patient who had earlier called for assistance called back to say she was still at the scene waiting for the ambulance, but all the paramedics were too scared to go to the area. “The attackers were still out there,” the female paramedic said. She said after trying to open a case at the police station, they were told that there was no evidence showing that the man was trying to hijack them. “They told us to drive back to Edendale Hospital with the man, but we were scared and left him at the police station.” The male paramedic who was with her on Saturday said responding to operations in Slangspruit in the future would not be easy. “The problem is that it is not the whole community that is doing this. Punishing the whole community for this would be wrong. “They need the ambulance. I think there should be an arrangement with the community because we cannot compromise our safety,” he said.

NEHAWU provincial  organiser  Mazwi  Ngubane  said  they  will  continue  not  responding  to  operations  in  Slangspruit.  “We  want  a  community  meeting  where  the  community  members  are  going  to  commit  themselves  to  stop  attacking  paramedics.” Ngubane  said  some  community  members  had  also  gone  to  the  Edendale  base  and  threatened  the  paramedics  after  the  incident.  Ward  councillor  Gladness  Mncwango  said  she  had  asked  the  safety  and  security  ward  com­ mittee  about  the  incident  but  they  had  said  they  were  not  aware  of  it. She  said  she  would  investigate  the  matter.Police  spokesperson  Mthokozisi  Ngobese  said  there  was  no  case  opened  at  the  Alexandra  Road  police  sta­ tion.  Department  of  Health  spokesperson  Sam  Mkhwanazi  declined  to  com­ ment  on  the  matter.  —  Reporter.

ELIX Makhathini’s desire to become an actor started with some cash in his pocket and a dream. Now Makhathini (25), who hails from Pietermaritzburg, hopes his role on SABC 1’s new series Ingozi will help open up more doors for him. “My mother passed away when I was 12, I had only met my father once and my two older brothers were too young to take care of me. “I had to make a decision and with R1 000 I had saved from odd jobs I moved to Jo’burg. “I did not know anyone in Jo’burg but when I arrived I managed to find a place to stay. I paid R800 and had to wake up and find a job the next morning. I had to figure out what to do next to keep living. “That was the worst time of my life because I have never been that hungry for such a long period. Growing up I wanted to be an IT specialist but because I could not study further I considered my other dream of being on television.” It was difficult at first but then he landed roles as an extra in Generations and Selimathunzi while supplementing his income with modelling and presenting gigs. Then came his big break — a role on a locally produced SABC show. “I play the role of Zozo on Ingozi. The series is about the Department of Transport and the road safety awareness campaign they are running in the country. “In January last year I lost one of my brothers in a car accident. It was the most horrific [event] I’ve ever experienced but I believe that incident has helped mould me into what I am today. I had just been with my brother and then 15 minutes later I was told that he

The road  to  success >>From tragedy to small screen success for local actor had been involved in a car accident in Thornville. “When I got there he was calling everyone by my name and then the car he was stuck in was on fire. All I remember was trying to get him out and people holding me back. I remember lying on the floor screaming because I could hear him screaming. “It was the worst. The car was on fire for an hour and a half before the fire fighters arrived. Hearing his screams was the most tragic thing for me. From then I started working even harder because he died and left children. “It was up to me to be a father figure to his children and that is why I spend so much time in Pietermaritzburg. I need to be here for them as an uncle and support them. I don’t have children of my own, but I cannot be selfish and leave them here. “In a way, I feel as though my role in the series Ingozi was given to me by my brother because it was just after he passed. I really relate to the series and it has helped me find closure. This is the biggest role I have ever played and I hope it is not the last but a humble beginning of greater things.” Makhathini lived on East Street and attended a boarding school in Otto’s Bluff. He completed Grade 8 at Marion High School before completing the rest of his secondary education at Copesville Secondary School. Catch Makhathini on SABC 1’s Ingozi every Sunday at 7.30 pm. Pietermaritzburg’s  up­and­coming  ac­ tor,  Felix  Makhathini  is  hopeful  that  his  role  on  the  new  SABC  1  series  In­ gozi  will  open  up  more  doors  for  him.  PHOTO:  IAN  CARBUTT

New Berita  single  a  sizzler Surprises  by Berita  will  be  availa­ ble  off  iTunes  today. PHOTO:  SUPPLIED

THIS month sees award-winning Afrosoul singer Berita release her new single Surprises, the follow-up to her massive hits Nguwe Wedwa and Thandolwethu. With a blissful tenor, Surprises is an inspirational tune that lyrically uplifts our spirits with each intoned harmony. As this motivational melody unwinds, Berita (25) sings about the simple ways to enjoy and appreciate life: “Let your light glow, life is so full of surprises”. “This song is certainly one to brighten up your day when all seems gloomy and mundane,” she said. The Zimbabwe-born singer honed her singing skills in East London while studying financial information systems at Walter Sisulu University. In 2014, she moved to Johannesburg where she released Songs Of Empowerment and the Metro FM award-winning album Conquering Spirit . The gold-selling artist, who collaborated with Hugh Masekela and Oliver Mtukudzi on the

track Mwana Wa Mai, is now putting the finishing touches to her self-titled third album. Surprises, the second single off the Berita album, was inspired by her feeling that “we should find joy in the present and hope in the future. The song is about the simple ways to enjoy and appreciate life, as it is unpredictable and full of surprises, so one should not wallow in their sorrow because we do not know what tomorrow will bring.” The song conjures up thoughts of summer days and nights with good people and great ambience. Berita assures her fans: “If there is any tune out there that will set your year on fire and carry you through the beautiful Valentine’s Day and Easter seasons, Surprises is it.” Surprises by Berita will be available off iTunes today.Surprises by Berita will be available off iTunes today.Surprises by Berita is available on iTunes. — Supplied.

57 YEAR OLD ZOLEKA

I worked for 27 years, my finances was not going good at all, so I resigned at work trying to make a business and settle my life at work. They did not like me so they delayed the process of my money. I was waiting for 6 months for my money to come, I went to the lawyers nothing, I went everywhere but was not getting help, so I heard about Baba Jooma who I made an appointment with him. He helped me and showed me why my money was not coming, after he gave me water to cleanse in 3 days. They called me at head office and apologised for the delay instead of getting 500 000, I got one million rand in two days and my money was in my bank. Baba Jooma really works. Thank you so much Baba Jooma. His contact number is 073 330 6043. Call him, you too can get help.

Midfielder Quincy  Ngcobo. 

JERRY BARNES  PANORAMA resident, former Maritzburg College pupil and exLamontville Golden Arrows player, Quincy Ngcobo is searching for a new team. Ngcobo, a gifted midfielders, well disciplined and good role model was offloaded by Arrows recently. Early in the season he was signed by the Durban PSL and given a three-year contract by Sobantu Shooting Stars in the Safa second division, ABC Motsepe League. According to Ngcobo, Arrows management allegedly told him

that head coach Clinton Larsen suggested that he be released because he was “not in his plan”. “I was a bit shocked when I was told that I was going to be offloaded and given my free clearance because the coach said I was not in his plans. “I’m not angry or heartbroken, but this is South African soccer you know, life goes on. I’m currently training alone and looking for a new team,” said Ngcobo. Although he is not sure about his next move there are rumours doing rounds in local circles that he might join the NFD side, Royal Eagles or go back to Sobantu Shooting Stars.

Paddlers face  test  on  low  river  Despite  coming  so  close  to  a  maiden  K1  title  in  2013,  Euro  Steel/Red  Bull's  Sbonelo  Khwela  is  in  strong  form  and  definitely  a  title  contender  at  the  65th  edition  of  the  FNB  Dusi  Canoe  Marathon  from  16­ 18  February  2017.PHOTO:  GAME­ PLAN  MEDIA

W

ITH the region still in the grip of the brutal two-year drought, the 2017 FNB Dusi Canoe Marathon got under way at Camps Drift this morning and will echo the races of old as paddlers will have a number of additional obstacles to manage on their three-day journey from Pietermaritzburg to Durban. The FNB Dusi has always revolved around the participants taking on the prevailing conditions as they find them and with a highly charged and competitive field assembled for the race, the classic looks set to reward one of the trio of stars who best adapt to the “old school” Dusi. “Our support for the sport reaffirms our belief that adventure is at the heart of innovation and this is one of many platforms on which we seek to make a lasting connection with our clients,” said Howard Arrand, KZN provincial head of FNB Business. The race promises to test every aspect of the paddlers’ Dusi armoury, from the usual portaging skills and technical river tests to additional curveballs in the form of the explosive growth of hyacinth. In the build-up to the race, three paddlers look most likely to be on the podium at the end of the race. Euro Steel/Red Bull’s Sbonelo Khwela won the Umpetha Challenge and the coveted 50 Miler Canoe Marathon. These two Khwela wins were straddled by Euro Steel’s Andy Birkett who took home the honours at the Ozzie Gladwin Canoe Marathon presented by Parklane SuperSpar. Multiple marathon world champion Hank McGregor threw his hat into the Dusi ring early in the summer and it did not take the Euro Steel/ Kayak Centre ace long to sound his intentions
