A number  of  reasons  to  celebrate

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.

Mayhem during  taxi  strike

continues to destroy some of our communities. However, the one thing that continues to stand undefeated is the spirit of the Upper Highway community. 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! We are confident that 2015 will be better than ever. We, at The Hillcrest Fever, have faced our

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.).

Parolee allegedly  rapes  107­year­old  woman MAKHOSANDILE  ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

T

HE community  of  Ward  11  in  Mpophomeni was on Monday protesting outside the local police station, baying for the blood of a man accused  of  raping  a  107­year­old  woman. The  victim  later  died  but  the  police  said  the cause  of  death  has  not  been  determined.  The 39­year­old accused was released on pa­ role three months ago following a rape conviction. The man allegedly raped the elderly woman on January 28, at night. He allegedly gained entry into the victim’s home through a window and when the elderly woman’s grandchild heard her crying out for help,  the  grandchild  notified  neighbours.  Mpophomeni  SAPS  station  commander  Cap­ tain Mpumelelo Makhathini confirmed yesterday that the man is in police custody and was due to appear  in  the  Howick  court  on  the  same  day. The suspect was handed over to the police by a  relative  on  Monday  and  once  members  of  the public got wind of that, they headed to the police station. KZN SAPS spokesperson Colonel Thembe­ ka  Mbhele  confirmed  that  community  members were  at  the  police  station.  She  said:  “A  group  of  about  180  community members barricaded Mpophomeni Police Station demanding  the  release  of  a  murder  suspect  de­ tained  at  the  station.  The  community  members damaged the station ceiling and gate. Public Order Police  arrived  on  the  scene  and  dispersed  the crowd.  Charges  of  public  violence  and  malicious damage to property were opened at Mpophomeni Police  Station  for  investigation.” The public order police allegedly used live am­ munition on the angry crowd. However, the Echo

could not determine whether anyone was injured. Councillor Thulani Mthalane of Ward 11, the ar­ ea where the incident occurred,  said the communi­ ty members are irate because they believe the po­ lice failed the victim, her family and the community in general.  “The previous week, the same suspect allegedly  attempted  to  rape  the  same  elderly woman and this was reported to the police but the police  allegedly  did  nothing  about  it.  “Allegedly,  the  elderly  was  not  questioned about the incident and the accused was not arrest­ ed, so community members feel that had the police intervened,  the  old  woman  would  still  be  alive,” Mthalane  said.  A meeting was held on Tuesday between the councillor, the community and the police and other stakeholders in the safety and security cluster, to address the issues that arose following the alleged rape  and  subsequent  arrest  of  the  accused.  The meeting  also addressed general worries the com­ munity  has  about  crime  in  the  area.  At the meeting, Mthalane urged the communi­ ty to exercise restraint as safety and security struc­ tures, the police and other stakeholders will hold a meeting to find a resolution to the crime issues that  are  a  concern  in  the  area.  Makhathini said: “It is important that the com­ munity  and  the  police  work  together  to  combat crime, especially when the suspect is already in po­ lice custody, then the community should allow the police  to  conduct  their  investigations.”  In two Facebook posts on the area’s community page that went viral, one about the rape and the other announcing the public meeting, commenters complained about how police have failed the com­ munity several times, with a number of cases unre­ solved  and  the  crime  rate  remaining  high.

The commotion  in  the  CBD  due  to  a  taxi  protest. PHOTOS:  SUPPLIED

Protesters create  havoc  in  CBD MAKHOSANDILE  ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

T

AXI drivers last week brought opera­ tions in the CBD to a standstill with their protest action against the Msun­ duzi  Municipality’s  traffic  department  im­ posing  hefty  traffic  fines. The  strike  action  began  last  Thursday morning and went on into Friday, affecting routes leading into the city, including Lang­ alibalele  Street  (Longmarket  Street)  and Camps  Drift  Road,  among  others. Maritzburg Fever journalist Lethiwe Ma­

f

khanya, who  was  amid  the  commotion while commuting to work on the morning of  the  strike,  reported  from  Langalibalele Street that drivers were complaining about traffic officers who issue them with steep and  unreasonable  traffic  fines. “They say this leads to them losing their jobs, and some of these fines, they claim, are  for  minor  offences  like  not  wearing  a seat  belt,”  Makhanya  said. She said the protesting drivers say their vehicles are impounded without a thorough inspection being conducted by traffic offi­ cers. Other demands listed in a memoran­

dum issued by the protesting drivers to the Msunduzi  Municipality  are  that  all  tickets for  traffic  fines  should  be  scrapped,  that taxi  stops  should  be  created  on  Langali­ balele  Street,  that  traffic  officers  on  duty should not hide but stand where all drivers can see them, that fines for vehicles should be issued to the owner of the taxi instead of  the  driver.  In  the  memorandum,  com­ plaints were raised about the cleanliness of taxi ranks and the traffic congestion at the Imbali  Rank  on  Pietermaritz  Street. “From  5 am  to  8 am,  traffic  officers should not stop taxis. Traffic officers should

have a specific time that they arrive at the Imbali  intersection.  We  request  that  the mayor  should  not  accompany  traffic  offi­ cers during roadblocks,” the memorandum states.  The strikers gave the municipality seven days  to  provide  a  response. During the protest action last week, the violence escalated as traffic within the CBD came to a standstill. The rank on Langali­ balele  Street  was  closed.  At  around  1 pm last Thursday, a vehicle was set alight, al­ legedly  by  the  protesting  taxi  drivers  on Langalibalele Street near the Natalia build­

ing opposite  the  taxi  rank.  According to a report in The Witness, a meeting  between  the  mayor,  city  offcials, Santaco provincial and regional leaders and taxi  owners  on  Wednesday.    The  report  stated  many  of  the  issues raised by the drivers were addressed, how­ ever, taxi operators said at the meeting they would report back to the drivers to deter­ mine  a  way  forward.    The  article  further stated that at the meeting municipality of­ ficials said they would approach the court about the traffic fines because these are de­ termined  by  the  chief  magistrate.

so we (myself and the other passengers) asked the driver to take us back home but he insisted that he knew another route. Well, we arrived in town but only to find that other taxi drivers had barricaded the corner of Pine Street and Langalibalele Street. They came running with sticks and stones towards the taxi I was in. They were swearing and calling the driver a sell-out. He tried to make a U-turn to get us and himself to safety but that backfired as he collided with another car. I did not see what happened. I just heard a big bang. Then I saw the protestors coming towards me and in that moment, I feared for my safety more than ever. The next thing I saw was more taxi drivers coming towards us. They banged on the windows and the doors with sticks, asking what we were doing inside the taxi. I jumped off the back seat and headed towards the door, all this while the taxi was in motion as I had no choice but to get out of the taxi. One of the protestors had a machete in his hand. I don’t know what happened to the taxi after that but I am grateful that I wasn’t hurt. It was unfair that innocent people’s lives were affected by this. The issue of taxi owners being charged exorbitant amounts for traffic fines should have been directed at the municipality in a peaceful manner. Violence and hurting the people who support them is not the answer.

One of the taxi drivers said he would transport us to town because he knew of an alternate route that he could use without having to use Edendale Road, which was blocked. Once in the taxi and on my way to town, I learnt that the alternate route was also blocked

TWO men appeared briefly in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court last Friday for allegedly assaulting two police officers during the taxi protest that brought the CBD to a stand last Thursday. Lucky Dlamini (27) and Lucky Biskode (27) from Northdale are facing charges of public violence and resisting arrest. It is alleged that both accused assaulted Constable Shashandran Padayachee and Constable Ryno Otto from Mountain Rise Police Station last Thursday. Both police officers were monitoring the taxi violence when they noticed the two men allegedly standing in the middle of the road, stopping the flow of traffic and swearing at the motorists. According to the charge sheet, the police officers approached the men and they [two men] allegedly became abusive and assaulted the police officers. They apparently hit the officers on the head with bottles and punched them. The police officers were taken to hospital by ambulance and were later released and treated as outpatients.

INCE Echo ran a story on missing tombstones (Tombstones go ‘missing’, January 25), more residents have come forward claiming that they have had the same experience and are demanding answers from the municipality. In last week’s article, Msunduzi Municipality spokesperson Thobeka Mafumbatha said while they are looking at placing more security at the Mountain Rise Cemetery, it must be noted that if family members fail to pay the company that erected the tombstone, the company then sends staff to remove it. Siphokazi Khumalo of Imbali said she did not know that there are other people who have the same problem as her. “I only realised when I was reading the newspaper that I am not the only one. We want answers on how this is being allowed to happen. “My mother’s tombstone was fully paid for when it was erected. “The municipality needs to investigate further and give us answers,” she said. Khumalo said her mother’s tombstone was erected in January 2012 and the slab for her tombstone was stolen in 2017. “My family and I have been visiting my mother’s grave all these years to clean and maintain the tombstone.On

Mother’s Day last year we went to her grave as usual but the slab was missing. “At first we thought that it was the street children but sitting down and thinking about it, we concluded it could never be them,” she said. “If we do not deal with this now it will continue and more people will become victims.”

Alex Antony of Woodlands said the tombstone on his parents’ grave went missing over the festive season. He said he was certain that an undertaker had not removed the tombstone from his loved ones’ burial site as he had paid for it in full. “I have receipts of full payments made to those that erected my parents’

FIVE  foreign nationals who were al­ legedly  involved  in  house  robberies and  theft  around  Pietermaritzburg were  arrested  last  Tuesday. All the suspects are believed to be from  Malawi  and  were  arrested  in  a house in Jeffrey’s Road in Westgate. According to Alexandra Road Po­ lice  Station  spokesperson  Captain Kholeka Mhlongo, the Plessislaer K9 Task  Team  held  a  crime­intelligence driven operation after they received a tip­off  about  the  five  men. “Police arrived at the address that they were given and found all the sus­ pects.  Three of them were hiding in the ceiling.  All  are  positively  linked  to house  robberies  that  happened  in Howick recently. We are investigating the possibility of them being linked to more  cases  of  a  similar  nature,”  she said. During the arrest, police recovered rounds  of  ammunition,  an  unknown amount  of  foreign  cash,  R10 450  in cash,  a  wallet  with  cards  and  cash, three  flat­screen  TVs,  11  cellphones, jewellery,  several  sets  of  car  keys,  a camera,  speakers  and  other  items. They were charged with possession of unlicensed  ammunition  and  posses­ sion  of  suspected  stolen  property.  The outcome of the case was not known at the time of going to print.

Some street  vendors  just  a  few  minutes  after  the  security  guards  from  the  municipality  had  confiscated  boxes  of  fruit  from  another  seller. 

MAKHOSANDILE ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

S

TREET vendors operating at the exit of the taxi rank in Langalibalele Street opposite the Natalia building say they are fed up with being harassed by the Msunduzi Municipality’s security guards. They said this on the morning of Tuesday at around 7.05 am after the Echo journalist witnessed a security guard confiscate boxes of fruit said to belong to one street vendor operating in the area. The guard was questioned by the journalist about this and he stated that only street vendors who sell biscuits are allowed to operate on that spot between 7 am and 8 am. This, he said, is an agreement that was made between the municipality and the street vendors. One street vendor confirmed the agreement, adding that it was made some time last year between the two parties.

February 1,  2018

However, the vendors said the security guards sometimes pitch up during the agreed hour that they are authorised to operate in outside the rank, and disrupt their businesses. They added that the guards sometimes pay them a visit three times a day. According to some of the street vendors, the last time the security guards went to the spot in question was last Thursday morning, just before the taxi strike erupted and engulfed the CBD. A seller, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of victimisation, said she once witnessed a security from the municipality slap a vendor during the guards’ rounds at the spot outside the rank. Another vendor who requested anonymity said: “Last year, one guard threw an empty bucket at a woman who was selling here. She was struck on the forehead and began bleeding.” “I believe the guard did that because she had sold all her goods out of the same bucket.” The fruit seller, who asked for anonymity too, who had some boxes of fruit confiscated on Tuesday morning, said this happens regularly and the reason given is that he should stop selling his goods on the streets. An estimated four boxes of fruit were seized from Wabuh and one witness claimed a batch of spoilt or rotten fruit was purposefully left behind. He said he has never applied for a permit to operate as a street vendor because he is unaware of where to go and the process he must follow. The fruit seller said the security paid a visit to the spot on Monday but he said he managed to run away before any of his goods were taken. He said he used to sell fruit on Church Street but was instructed to no longer operate from there either. “They [municipality] do not want us to sell anywhere in town,” he said. Another street vendor who asked for her identity not to be revealed, lambasted the municipality and its guards for disrupting their businesses. “This is how we make a living because we are unemployed. Sometimes when running away from the securities our goods are kicked over and spilt onto the street pavement, then vagrants pick these up and we lose out,” the street vendor said. She said the security guards arrive bearing sjamboks, adding that she suspects the security guards confiscate the goods for personal use. “How do they expect us to take our children to school with the hour we have to make money to raise our families?” she asked. This street vendor said she has made numerous unsuccessful attempts to obtain a permit. In early November last year, the city’s mayor, Themba Njilo, led a contingent of the municipality’s staff doing a clean-up campaign which, in part, also inspected whether some street vendors were in possession of permits to operate within the CBD. During the campaign, street vendors without permits were instructed to pack up their stalls and apply immediately for a permit.

No bail  for  teenage  mom  GA 1 THENOLE 1 UTH

LETHIWE MAKHANYA >>lethiwe.makhanya@media24.com A TEENAGE mother who allegedly drowned her six-month-old baby in the Msunduzi River along Woodhouse Road in Scottsville two weeks ago, abandoned her bail application at the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court last Wednesday. Nelisa Ngcobo (19) from Taylor’s Halt is facing charges of premeditated murder. State prosecutor Patty Davids told the court that Ngcobo is willing to apply for bail but she does not have an alternative address in which to live.

f

Davids said no one in Ngcobo’s family is willing to accommodate her. She further told the court that the investigation is expected to be complete by next week as the post-mortem is outstanding. Ngcobo made headlines two weeks ago when she allegedly drowned her baby, claiming that she did not want the child. The baby was found dead the next day after hours of searching by members of the police search and rescue team. The case was adjourned to February 5 for the case to be transferred to a regional court.

Closure in  corpse  mix  up  incident

Tebogo Mzamane. 

MAKHOSANDILE ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

A

N Imbali Stage 2 family who were left emotionally traumatised by the mix up of the corpse of one of their family members, who was eventually buried by another family in Colenso, finally laid one of their own to rest. Sibusiso Mzamane, the father of Tebogo Mzamane (19) whose remains were mistakenly given to another family by an official at the Fort Napier mortuary, said Tebogo was laid to

rest at the weekend. He said even though the entire experience had been disturbing for the family, burying Tebogo has provided some closure. Sibusiso said the family is now seeking to obtain financial compensation from the Department of Health as well as counselling as the mix up was disturbing. He indicated that he will take legal steps against the department. Echo published a story in last week’s edition about the Mzamane’s traumatic ordeal, however, the KZN DoH responded to the newspaper’s media inquiry after the printing deadline. The spokesperson  for  the  KZN  Department  of  Health,  Ncumisa  Mafunda,  said:  “The department regrets an incident whereby human error at one of its mortuaries resulted in mortal remains being handed to the wrong family for burial. The  department  has  been  told  the  follow­ ing  by  mortuary  management: • the identification process was completed correctly; • the challenge arose when the body was released; • the death register numbers which were allocated were similar (PMB 75/2018, which was allocated to the Mzamane family from Imbali whose family member’s body was incorrectly taken, and PMB 76/ 2018 which belongs to the Maphanga family from Colenso). It appears that the staff member who released the body misread the body tag; • incidentally, both bodies were of similar age, and both victims of assault, so the injuries were also similar; and • the family that took the wrong body washed and dressed it before removing it from the facility. “Both the SAPS and a court magistrate are involved in the matter. A meeting has been held with both investigating officers involved in the case and the SAPS will be engaging with the magistrate in Colenso to issue the exhumation order so that the mortal remains of Mzamane can be exhumed and returned to the rightful family. The mortal remains of the Maphanga family will be buried in Colenso. Both families have accepted the situation as a human error and will be required to issue affidavits in order for this process to be finalised. “The department, once again, wishes to

case of murder was opened by the police. Alexandra SAPS spokesperson Captain Kholeka Mhlongo said no arrests have been made.

Parents protest,  demanding  new  classrooms MAKHOSANDILE  ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

PUPILS at Msilinga Primary School in Ezinketheni near Copesville have not returned to the classroom as a stay away  pushed  by  the  parents  is  under  way.  The protest action began last Monday when the par­ ents barred pupils and teachers from entering the school premises, demanding that the new building, although under construction, should be put to use instead of the existing  mobile  classrooms. Parents said the building of the school began seven

years ago and their children have been using dirty and overcrowded classrooms and unhygienic mobile toilets, which  all  pose  threats  to  the  pupils’  health.  According to the chairperson of the school governing body (SGB) Ray Mabena, the completion of the school has been postponed several times, with the last promise for it to be done being January. A meeting between the Department of Education (DoE) officials, parents and other stakeholders, was scheduled for January 26, so an update  could  be  provided  to  the  parents. The parents had stated that should their demand of using the new classrooms even though electricity and water have not been connected to the new building, not be  met,  the  stay  away  would  continue.  That  meeting was moved to January 30, and the decision whether the stay away would continue was to be taken then. Accord­ ing to a parent who attended the meeting on Tuesday, a decision was taken that schooling would only resume on February 5, and the pupils would move into the new school  building.

Old uniforms  and  books  donated  MAKHOSANDILE  ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

T

HREE concerned Imbali women have initiated a uniform and textbook drive for school pupils who come from impoverished backgrounds. One of the women, Sethabile Mdluli (22), said the pupils who have benefited from the drive are from  Philani  Primary  and  Siqongweni  Secondary schools, which are both in Imbali Unit 13. She said the handover of the donation was done last Tues­ day at Philani Primary, while the trio visited Siqong­ weni  the  next  day. “We collected the uniforms, which were handed over  at  the  primary  school,  from  former  pupils. “We had approached the school’s head of de­ partment and principal and they assisted with iden­ tifying the pupils who needed assistance the most,” she  said.  Mdluli  added that reading books, textbooks and study  guides  were  also  collected  for  the  school.  She said that at the high school, the donation

included textbooks  and  study  guides.  “Now we need sponsors to assist us to further our  cause  and  help  more  pupils,”  Mdluli  said.  The recent graduate said they intend registering a  non­governmental  organisation  (NGO)  by  the name  Road  Less  Travelled  Foundation  (RLTF).  She said that through the NGO they will carry out  more  school  pupil  outreach  programmes. “One  of  these  is  a  youth  development  pro­ gramme through which we will teach pupils how to apply  for  tertiary  education,  the  various  courses available at tertiary centres and alternatives they can  explore  besides  education,”  Mdluli  said.  Should their proposal to run such a programme be a success with the school’s management team, then Siqongweni Secondary School will be the first school  where  it  will  be  carried  out.  “We plan on inviting stakeholders who will be able to teach pupils about opening businesses. We want  to  empower  the  local  youth,”  she  said. The other two women who Mdluli works with are  Zoleka  Jali  and  Mbali  Ngubane.

enables our continued ability to provide the care that so many people need,” said Msunduzi Hospice fundraiser Tanya Roux, as the hospice celebrates 35 years of exis­ tence  this  year.  She said the organisation has always appreciated the support it receives from the community of Pietermaritzburg and outside.  “This 35th anniversary is our opportu­ nity to reflect on what we have achieved and  what  challenges  lie  ahead  of  us. When  this  charity  organisation  was  es­ tablished 35 years ago, it was for people

who were  concerned  about  the  care  of those  with  cancer  who  set  out  to  learn and equip themselves with the necessary skills. “We are indebted to our founders and trust that we will continue to fulfil the vi­ sion they had. In this, our 35th year, we call on those who already support us as well as those who do not, to make Msun­ duzi  Hospice  their  charity  of  choice  in 2018.”  she  said.  She  said  that  since  the  organisation was established it has been growing each and  every  year  through  good  and  hard times.    “We want to become a leading exam­ ple of a well­managed and service­orien­ tated charity. “Our ultimate goal is to be­

come self­reliant in as much of our fun­ draising  as  possible,”  said  Roux. The  founder  of  the  modern  hospice movement,  Dane  Cecily  Saunders,  said hospice will continue to provide palliative for  those  with  cancer.    “This is the work of hospice and Msun­ duzi  Hospice  for  the  next  35 years.  The need  continues  to  exist  for  the  services that we provide and we exist to meet this need of providing people in our communi­ ty with access to pain control, symptoms management  and  a  dignified  death.  “Everything  that  we  do,  from  fun­ draising, the publicity, etc.  is all in support of this goal. We call on people to make this possible for the next 35 years. We care because  you  matter,”  she  said.

Wetlands for  a  sustainable  urban  future

G

REATER Edendale Mall, in partnership with Liberty NPO, is celebrating the second annual World Wetland Day at the mall. This year’s focus is on raising awareness about the importance of wetlands for people and the planet. This year’s theme, “Wetlands for a Sustainable Urban Future”, high-

lights the importance of wetlands in contributing to making cities liveable. The ongoing growth of human settlements in today’s world is a major concern for wetland conservation. As cities grow and the demand for land increases, the tendency is to encroach on wetlands. They are often viewed as waste land, to be used to

dump waste on, or be used for other purposes, but when preserved and used sustainably, urban wetlands can provide multiple economic, social and cultural benefits for surrounding communities and cities. A total of 360 pupils and 14 environmental stakeholders will be getting together on World Wetlands Day on

February 2 at Greater Edendale Mall to share and engage in caring for our wetlands. Over 40 wetlands are recorded in the Greater Edendale area, with only one being fully functional. Greater Edendale Mall has seized this opportunity to educate the Edendale community about our wetland and those in their immediate vicini-

ties. Schools attending the event are either built on a wetland or within the immediate vicinity of one. “As a mall, we are committed to making our cities liveable by taking action today to retain, restore and preserve urban wetlands,” said marketing manager at Edendale Mall, Sonya Caldecott. — Supplied

In 1990, the unbanning of liberation movements, the release of political leaders and the start of the repeal of apartheid legislation had given us all false hope that freedom was imminent. By 1991, however, euphoria had given way to realism. The apartheid government was waging an ugly war on the people through death squads and the so-called Third Force that aided its surrogates such as the Inkatha Freedom Party. At the Codesa negotiations in Kempton Park, F.W. de Klerk’s National Party was doing its best to frustrate the process and extract maximum privileges for the minority it represented. Reports about conditions in exile had shown up

some heroes of the struggle who had once been deified by the people to be mere mortals capable of greed and cruelty. Into this confused space came the Sekunjalo Tour, billed as icon Hugh Masekela’s welcome home party. Over four months he crossed South Africa and played at 20 venues that were always sold out. On tour with him were bands and musicians who had been inspired by this legend and had become household names during his exile. Here these musos were, sharing the limelight with their inspiration and role model. Others had been in exile in different parts of the world and Masekela wanted to co-celebrate the homecoming with them. This man was never going to party alone and hog the love for himself. I was fortunate to catch one of the Johannesburg legs of the tour. To this day, I count Sekunjalo as the

best live music experience I have had yet, and which I will probably ever have. The music was powerful and the stage performances extra-terrestrial. You could feel that Bra Hugh was relishing the connection with the home crowd, as they sang and danced along. It was an intoxicating atmosphere akin to one big family reunion, with Masekela as the head of the household leading the celebrations. For those few hours we forgot the carnage on the streets and the intransigence of the National government and its surrogates at the negotiating table. Mercifully there were no cellphones to spoil the ambiance with funny ringtones, no instant news feeds to tell us what was going on outside and jolt us out of our collective trance. There was no Twitter, Instagram or Facebook to which people would

be posting instead of enjoying the moment. It was just beautiful. On that beautiful evening we felt this precious thing called freedom. It was here. When Bra Hugh blew his trumpet we could also see the walls of Jericho collapsing. We rediscovered the euphoria of February 1990 when we had thought the big day was almost upon us. We didn’t know as we sang along to Bra Hugh’s Stimela, Sankomota’s Waiting For YOur Name To Be Called and Bayete’s Mbombela that the big day was still a long three years away. Nor did we care, really. The family reunion was just like being in a free country. Such was the effect of Sekunjalo that some people followed the tour to other towns and cities from where it was reported that the spell was just as powerful as it was in Johannesburg. I watched Masekela perform

many times since that bewitching day. Even as he aged, his on-stage presence remained as electric. The last few times I saw him perform was at his 75th birthday celebration at the Soweto Theatre in 2014 and at the Joy of Jazz festival at the Sandton Convention Centre in 2016. On both occasions he performed alongside his soul brother Oliver Mtukudzi. They sang, blew, strummed and got down like 25year-olds with four decades left of life in them. On these two occasions — as in all the other Bra Hugh nights I had been to — I was transported back to that night at the Standard Bank Arena where he got us to taste and smell freedom. The gift of that night is one I will always treasure and one for which I will forever be grateful. — City Press. • Mondli Makhanya is the editor in chief  at the City  Press.

Be a  role  model  on  World  Read  Aloud  Day  O

N World Read Aloud Day, February 1, it is well worth our while to ponder the countless benefits of such a simple activity. While children whose parents frequently spend time conversing with them already have a head start, it’s mostly in books, newspapers and magazines that enriching vocabulary is seen. A child who hears these types of

words has a giant advantage. Reading aloud also increases a child’s attention span, and when you read aloud, you’re whetting a child’s appetite for reading. Expecting your child to grow into being an avid reader is wishful thinking if they see no one reading at home. In an age where the average teen spends 90 minutes a day texting, it is vital to keep the habit of reading aloud, alive.

There is evidence that we don’t remember information as well when we read it on a screen, so parents and caregivers have a responsibility to encourage a love of books and be a reading role model. Read Educational Trust has a focus of promoting literacy in a country where 78% of Grade 4 pupils cannot read for meaning in any language, according to the Pirls Study (Progress In

International Reading Literacy, 2016). In this context, the Read Aloud Magic sets, launched alongside Reading Matters, are a vital tool in encouraging reading aloud, at home and at school. Read Aloud Magic sets are available online. Each of the three box sets contains 12 books filled with adventure-filled stories. The stories are all set in Africa and revolve around children and ani-

mals discovering the world. Set A is for children aged four to seven, while five to eight year olds will enjoy set B. Set C is for children aged six to nine. Each set sells for R1 500 and may be bought via http://www.thereadshop.co.za/ or on www.takealot.com or from Reading Matters. Phone 087 237 7781 or 0800 11 65 35 or e-mail readmat@ read.co.za — Supplied.

Local writer  releases  new  literary  work MAKHOSANDILE  ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

P

IETERMARITZBURG author Zipho Makhoba’s latest literary work hit the shelves last Monday. The 29-year-old’s second offering covers various topics, including politics and race issues. His first book is titled Post-Independence Pitfalls in Africa — Contemporary Echoes of the Past in Black and White. Being a scribe and publishing papers is something Makhoba has been doing since his varsity days, going into mainstream publishing in 2015. Makhoba owns a publishing company, Astute Books, which published his recent work. In 2016, Makhoba successfully coordinated and facilitated the “Better Off Knowing” campaign. He was awarded a certificate of appreciation by the Mentor School of Politics in 2009. During his years of study, he was a class representative in Modern Political Thoughts 301 and in Comparative Government and Politics 304. Echo journalist Makhosandile Zulu had a chat with him about his life, his love for the written word and his latest works. MZ: What made you become an author? MAKHOBA: I have ample love for literature and storytelling in general. In particular, I wanted to add meaningfully to the profusion of literary work

on the African continent. In addition, I believe in documenting the happenings of our epoch so that the future generations will know where this continent is coming from. MZ: What path did you take to become an author? MAKHOBA: Most of our African authors are self-taught and I am no exception. We do not have professional institutions where one can go, specifically to study the art of writing. When I got a chance in 2007 to start varsity I picked political science and philosophy as my majors. This curriculum introduced me to a mountain of literary works by African scholars, sages, philosophers and thinkers. There is a saying that you are what you feed your mind. The more I exposed myself to these writings, the more I fell in love with the art of writing. MZ: Tell us a bit about yourself. MAKHOBA: I am down to Earth, very quiet, goal-orientated, hard working and I have a huge heart. MZ: What is the title of the book you have just released? MAKHOBA: My current book is titled Antonyms of Democracy in Africa — The Democratization of Ill-democracy. MZ: Which genre does your new book fall under? MAKHOBA: The book is non-fiction and it falls under the political sociology, political philosophy categories. MZ: Without giving away too much, please tell us what the book is about.

Renowned DJ  set  to  rock  local  scene

Enoo Napa  will  be  playing  at  Touch  of  Class  this  coming  Sunday.  ENOO Napa will be Rocking Touch of Class this Sunday, February 4. The producer and DJ who is signed by Black Coffee under his company Soulistic Music, last year was rated as the best afro house producer in South Africa by Tracksource. He has played in many venues but it’s going to be his first time at Touch of Class in Imbali Unit J. He will be coming straight from

the UK where he was sharing a set with Black Coffee and other International giants. This coming Sunday will be the first he will be playing alongside ADJ, Fano, Lavista, King Torra, Skydeep, Wonder & McGovisto. Entry is R50 at the door and R100 and the gig gets underway midday. For more information call or whatsapp 082 041 7228.

MAKHOBA: The book is a collection of short essays. These essays cover a range of topics, from political economy to political sociology and political philosophy. For example, there are essays on subtle manifestations of racism, how and why democracy is imposed on the African continent, how unemployment is a lucrative business in Africa, how thieves and the unemployed are about to become permanent premature classes, the dichotomies and contradictions of our imposed democracy, etc. MZ: Why did you choose to write about these topics? MAKHOBA: I study and interpret the daily woes we face as a people of this continent with the hope of finding answers, if not, at least the alternatives. Most of the topics I write about are highly contentious and there are certain people who do not feel comfortable. But my job as an author is not to ensure their comfort but rather bring hope to the majority of blacks. MZ: Please tell us briefly about the path you took leading to the publishing of your book? MAKHOBA: A lot of reading and observation, followed by literature review, peer review. Then there was a manuscript, then a book. MZ: What would you like to accomplish as an author? MAKHOBA: I would like to create an environment where writing is treated like any other profession, not just an art or a hobby.

Zipho Makhoba  with  his  latest  literary  work. MZ: What do you love the most about being an author? MAKHOBA: I love the autonomy and the fact that when you write, you expose your shortcomings and your brilliance all at once. MZ: What are some of your challenges that you as a writer have experienced? MAKHOBA:  Distribution — getting

your books to all bookstores can be very costly. MZ: What advice have you got for young people who dream of becoming authors? MAKHOBA: Read as much as you can, focus on that one genre that you love the most, be open to criticism and master intellectual property law.

Childbirth education  for  an  empowered  birth

maritzburg F0RUM24-OS160617

FEBRUARY’S Pregnancy Education Month campaign highlights how childbirth education empowers parents for a better birth experience. Birth is the most natural process on Earth and yet studies have shown that one in every four women describes giving birth as traumatic and up to 20% meet the criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder. It has also been shown that women who fear childbirth experience longer labours and are more likely to need an emergency Caesarean. “There is a link between a lack of knowledge, fear and the experience of childbirth,” said Lynne Bluff, national co-ordinator for the Childbirth Educators’ Professional Forum (CBEPF), which is partnering with Bio-Oil and hospitals nationally for the Empowering Birth Pregnancy Education Month campaign. Good childbirth classes, says Bluff, will equip parents with the pros and cons of all the available childbirth options, as well as practical tips and techniques for the birth and afterwards.

Childbirth educators are usually nurses and midwives, and parents who can share both professional expertise and personal experience. Classes are offered at many hospitals, clinics and private practices. “We believe that when parents are informed, any type of birth, from home birth to Caesarean, can be an empowering one. It shifts from a potentially overwhelming experience to one that is fulfilling, positive and, ultimately, beneficial to mother and child,” said Anna Guerin of Bio-Oil. “There is simply no substitute for evidencebased information provided by qualified and experienced professionals. With quality childbirth education, parents are empowered and properly prepared in a warm and supportive way,” said Bluff.

“JUST AFTER ONE CONSULTATION, DR JUMA CHANGED OUR LIVES” PILLAY (46YRS )FROM NORTHDALE: we heard about DR. JUMA 2yrs ago but we couldn’t believe until when Moulana referred us to him and he asked us to come with R100 and our lives changed. I won R9.7m in Lotto, we had tried many doctors but all failed. After 2days my wife consulted DR. JUMA, he gave her a magic ring to wear it on her right hand, when she reached the Casino she began playing the machine and later went to he table everyone looked at her as she was won R2.6m in the Casino. After we bought 2 brand new cars, a house and opened up business. She also told us to use the same ring in our business premises and now is booming. THANK YOU DR. JUMA WE REGARD YOU AS OUR FAMILY FATHER. NAIDOO (46YRS): I got fired at work last year in June, I tried everywhere to get a job but didn’t, later my husband went away with another woman because I wasn’t working. He used to drink alcohol and chase me out of the house with my kids. Can you imagine a Muslim man after 56yrs. But believe me I went to DR. JUMA he gave me KATIKO powder, within one day I got a call from Edgars store and Cell c Ballito, now am happy, working and my husband is back after 2days, he apologized bought me a brand new car and he stopped drinking. THANK YOU DR. JUMA YOU SAVED MY MARRIAGE. DR JUMA also helps in problems like: love, Luck, marriage, promotion at work, cleasing etc.

I was on the verge of a financial breakdown when I read the miracle that MAMA HALU is doing to change the life of people going through financial problems. After contacting her, she explained so many different ways to change life but I chose the SHORT BOYS to put R1.8 million in my Capitec Bank Account and within 4 hrs I was very surprised to receive a bank notification that R1.8 million was deposited in my account and she said I must pay her back R500 000.00 only. I publish this story to inform everyone who has financial problems that MAMA HALU will change your financial problems. I am now a very successful businessman because of her miracles and powerful SHORT BOYS that deposited money in my account.

I now live in Pretoria with my family because of business and companies that we have that MAMA HALU helped us to get through her wonderful powers and miracles that made me to be a LOTTERY WINNER and also helped my beloved husband to win LOTTERY. It all started when I read the miracles that MAMA HALU was performing changing the lives of people with their financial problems. I then contacted her for help because we were about to lose our houses because we were failing to pay our bond and loans from the banks. She gave us different ways but I chose to win LOTTO and in just 3hrs she gave me Lucky numbers that I used to play LOTTO. I was very surprised and shocked to see all the Lucky Numbers appearing on the draw and we shared the money by paying her 20% from the money I won and she also helped my husband to win the POWER BALL in November. He was very shocked with the results I got from the LOTTO because he had lost faith in Doctors, Herbalist and Sangomas after he losing lots of money to them. It was until I called this Powerful Woman that our lives changed. So to everyone who has been disappointed before with fake Doctors, I promise you that don’t lose hope. MAMA HALU will change your life and your family to be a successful family like us because we are 100% financially stable and very successful because of her wonderful experience in herbs.

To those who have serious financial problems, I am assuring you that the MAGIC WALLET of MAMA HALU will change your life forever. My name is Miss Noluvuyo and my contact number is 060 618 2357. I was born in Witbank and I am now one of the successful women here in Witbank. It all started when I read the true testimonies of different people that MAMA HALU changed their lives regarding their financial problems. I phoned MAMA HALU regarding my financial problems and she did explain different ways but I chose the MAGIC WALLET that helps me to get R25 000.00 each and every day and she promised me that I must use it for 12 months and pay her back R50 000.00 each and every week from the R175 000.00 that I get every week. Now I got my own shipping and trucking companies that I got through using the powerful MAGIC WALLET that MAMA HALU sent to me through a speed courier because I was far from her offices which I received within 24hrs after contacting her and it started working to me the same time. To my fellow business people that your things are not going fine or everyone who’s working but you still suffering in your life, don’t waste time because a successful life is waiting for you. just call MAMA HALU ON: 084 426 0305

“I COULDN’T BELIEVE THIS CAN HAPPEN IN MY LIFE”

My name is Mrs. N. Radebe from Pietermaritzburg. My number is 073 306 4713. I am one of the women who lost hope and lot of money to many fake Doctors, Sangoma and Herbalists. I was struggling in my life because of financial problems as I was working as a teacher in Pietermaritzburg until I met one of my old friends who I was together in the teaching college driving a very expensive car and she took me to her home which she had bought for cash without any loan or bond. I explained to her how I was struggling financially with my family and I begged her to tell me the secret behind her successful life. She gave me different newspapers with articles of different people thanking MAMA HALU on how she is helped end their financial problems. I never hesitated and I called MAMA HALU and she explained different ways but I was interested with the SHORT BOYS to put R3 million in my FNB account and within 4hrs I was shocked to receive a message from the bank that R3 million has been deposited into my account. I called MAMA HALU and it was a call of Joy to asking her what must I do next with the money in my account and she just told me that I must transfer 25% to her account and I did it from the bank without any problems or question from the bank. Since then she never called or asked me anything again. I am living a beautiful and successful life that everyone deserves. I started my taxi business with that money and bought my dream house. My children are going to good schools now. No matter how hard and tough your financial problems are, I promise you that MAMA HALU will make you and your family to leave a better life. Call MAMA HALU NOW ON: 084 426 0305.

Official distance  and  changes  for  2018  Comrades  Marathon  T

HE official distance of the 2018 Comrades Marathon as well as changes to the route have been confirmed by the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA). CMA race director, Rowyn James said the officially measured and certified distance for this year’s down run is 90,184km. The 2018 Comrades down run will be slightly longer than the previous Down Run route. The 2016 route was 89,208km.” James has advised that some changes will be effected from the start at the Pietermaritzburg City Hall. “On race day, our runners will start their epic down run journey at the City Hall, running down Chief Albert Luthuli Street, heading east. From there they will continue along Alan Paton Avenue and then contraflow onto the N3 national freeway. From there, they will glide off right onto the Market Road on ramp and then left onto the slip road to CB Downes Road and then follow the traditional Comrades route towards Polly Shortts and onwards to Durban.” James continues: “Regarding the route into Durban, athletes will follow the N3 under the Tollgate Bridge and then take the new fly-over into David Webster Street which becomes Bram Fischer Road. From there, our runners will turn left into Samora Machel Road which then becomes Masabalala Yengwa Avenue.” “Runners will then run contraflow in Masabalala Yengwa Avenue and cross to the north bound lane at Battery Beach Road. They will then take the pathway to

the left between the bollards, pass the Virgin Active Gym and turn left into the tunnel before Nino’s and onto the field to the Finish Line at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.” As per the Safety at Sports and Recreational Events Act 2010, James has also confirmed that the new finish at

Moses Mabhida Stadium aligns with the requirements of the Events Act which necessitated the move to this iconic Durban landmark. James has thanked the eThekwini Metro Police and Msunduzi Traffic Police for providing escorts to ensure the safety of the route course measurer.

“We are working closely with all traffic and law enforcement officials to ensure the safety and integrity of the event.” James adds: “Working with the officials at the Moses Mabhida Stadium has been a pleasure. We look forward to ensuring a great

race day for both our runners and spectators on Sunday, June 10, 2018.” For more detailed information and maps of the changes to the start and finish of the route, please visit the Comrades Marathon website: www.comrades.com

Izinhlolikhono zamaqembu  ebhola  elikhokhelayo:  ubabona  kanjani  abakhohlisi I-EDENDALE Football Association (EFA) ifisa ukudlulisa isexwayiso kubazali nabadlali abancane abasafufusa endimeni yebhola likanobhutshuzwayo. I-EFA isiyithole kaningana imibiko eqhamuka kubaqeqeshi babadli abangaphansi kwalo-association yezinhlolikhono (football scouts) ezingagunyaziwe futhi ezingekho emthethweni ezizokhohlisa ziphinde ziqole abazali nezingane zithembise izinto ezingekho.I-EFA ithi kumele ugade

ukuthi lezi zinhloli zikutshela ukuthi zingakwenzelani. Kunezinhloli zangampela kanti futhi kunezinhloli ezidlala ngabantu. Kanti futhi kunezinhloli ezifuna ukwenza imali nje ngabantu abangazi lutho. Kumele uzivikele kulabo abafuna nje ukwenza imali. Nazi izindlela ongabona ngazo ukuthi umhloli udlala ngawe: •Ukuthi bakhokhele khona bezokubeka ethubeni lokusayinwa iqembu elikhokhelayo.Bathi leyomali izoset-

shenziselwa i-transport nezindleko zokulimala •Ukuthi bazokuqeqesha ngokuhlukile ukuze uhehe amaqembu asezingeni eliphezulu •Baphatha omazisi abangathembisi abakhombisa ukuthi bahamuka kwiqembu thizeni elisemazingeni aphezulu •Bakukhombisa noma bakunika incwadi abathi iqhamuka kwiqembu thizeni (elikhokhelayo) •Bagqoka umfaniswano weqembu

abathi baqhamuka kulo •Bathi bazokuyisa kwama-trial eqembu likanobhutshuzwayo eGoli (noma kwesinye isifundazwe) •Baxhumana nawe ezinkundleni zokuxhumana (Facebook,Twitter) I-Edendale Football Association inxusa abazali nezingane ukuthi ziqaphele ukuze zigcine ziphephile: •Ungavumi ukuthi umuntu othile ugumhloli ngoba esho njalo •Cela ukuthi akukhombise okuwumazisi waleliqembu athi uqhamuka kulo

(uwubhekisise) •Bhekisisa umfaniswano awugqokile (ukuthi uwugqokile akuchazi ukuthi ulimele lelo qembu) •Xhumana neqembu athi uqhamuka kulo ngqo ukhulume nomuntu ophethe •Ungamdluliseli mali yinganoma yisiphi isizathu – izinhloli zeqiniso azizibandakanye nokukhishwa kwezimali •Ungayindawo naloyomhloli – ikakhulukazi uma kungaziwa ukuthi ulaphi futhi uyaphi

Young cricketers  score  big  A TOTAL of R641 000 that was raised during the last two Sunfoil Test series will go directly to young South Africans in disadvantaged communities through Willowton Group’s Sunfoil Education Trust (SET). These funds will enable the organisation to sponsor bursaries for promising young township cricketers, offering them an invaluable opportunity to pursue a future cricketing career. The Willowton Group donated R1 000 for every four, R2 000 for every six and R2 500 for every wicket taken during the series between South Africa and Zimbabwe as well as the South Africa - India series. While South Africa came out on top in both tests, Willowton Group’s generous donation is ensuring there are many more winners out there. “This exciting test series is made even more rewarding knowing that the future of the South African cricket landscape will comprise players from rural communities.

“Every talented child deserves a real opportunity to show the world what they can do, and we truly hope that each recipient finds a way to success,” said Shoaib Moosa, Chief Commercial Officer for Willowton Group, manufacturers of Sunfoil cooking oil. The most recent amount brings the total to more than R5 644 million raised for the Sunfoil Education Trust since its inception in the 1995/1996 domestic cricket season. This has enabled 21 talented township cricketers to attend some of South Africa’s leading schools. The selection of each bursary recipient is a thorough process with candidates having to complete the Sunfoil Township Cricket development programme – a coaching scheme for disadvantaged youngsters. Those showing potential will make the Sunfoil development squads with only the most outstanding players becoming eligible for the bursary scheme.

Once chosen, the recipient will receive funding for school fees, uniforms and hostel costs with ongoing cricket coaching alongside academic studies. “While honing their cricket skills is part of the benefit of the bursary programme, there are also so many associated benefits of a sporting discipline. These future stars are taught skills such as discipline, respect and teamwork, all of which will carry through into any career they choose. “They are also encouraged to pursue their academic studies with as much rigour as they give to their sporting disciplines because education is the building block of any individual, and any nation,” explained Moosa. Willowton Group remains committed to the social upliftment of local communities through sponsorship of programmes such as these, as well as the brand sponsorship of cricket from township level all the way through to national test cricket. — Supplied.
