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

Minibus taxi  driver  and  assistant  shot  in  Esigodini MAKHOSANDILE  ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

A

TAXI driver and his assistant were shot last Wednesday in the Esigodini area at around

5pm. Plessislaer SAPS spokesperson, Captain Musa Ntombela said the two were rushed to a hospital following the shooting. He said the driver, Siyabonga Molefe, was shot in the neck while his assistant, Samkelo Gugushe (17), was shot in the buttocks. Ntombela said police are investi-

gating a case of attempted murder, however, no arrests have been made. He said the police cannot confirm whether the incident is linked to the ongoing taxi route dispute in the area, but said police have not ruled that out as a possibility. An Esigodini resident, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of victimisation, said another shooting occurred on Saturday, January 13 at Malandeni that left a taxi riddled with bullets. The resident claimed the attack is linked to the route dispute.

Ntombela confirmed that the police are aware of the incident and said they are investigating a case of attempted murder. The shooting took place at 7.15pm, no one was injured. The resident who spoke to Echo said people in the area struggle to travel to and from work as the route dispute continues with many forced to walk far in order to get a taxi. The chairperson of the Edendale/Esigodini Taxi Association, Themba Lions, could not talk with Echo when he was contacted for

comment as he was going into a meeting. However, he said he can be contacted today (Thursday). Should communication with Lions be successful Echo will run a follow-up story in its next edition. In October last year, a taxi driver and his friend were shot dead in the Edendale area in an incident the police believe was linked to the route dispute. That shooting came after four taxis had been torched in the Esigodini area days earlier which led to taxi drivers under the Edendale,

Esigodini Taxi Association taking to the street in protest to voice their concerns about their lives being in danger. On October 6, 2017, the Esigodini and Emgodini communities marched to the Plessislaer SAPS where they handed over a memorandum of demands, which outlined their concerns and fears regarding the taxi route dispute in the area. One of the demands was that the community wanted a new association in these areas to be granted permission to operate on the disputed route.

AN eight-year-old boy was killed in a hit-and-run accident in Boshoff Street in Pietermaritzburg on Monday morning. Upon ER24’s arrival at 9.44am they found the little boy lying on the pavement next to the road. Upon assessment, paramedics found he showed no signs of life and ER24 declared the boy dead on the scene. It is thought his two friends, believed to be eight years old, pulled him out of the road and onto the pavement after he was knocked over. The exact circumstances surrounding the incident are not yet known. – Supplied.

said the  family  fears  that  the  mud  house may collapse and injure its occupant as it is  in  a  “battered  state”.  She said the applicant lived in the mud house but because of his mental health the family moved him out and the applicant’s uncle Nicholas Luthuli, who also has mental health  issues,  was  moved  in. Mngadi said the mud house has cracked walls and the roof leaks. The family’s con­ cern is that the occupant of the mud house is  not  of  sound  mind. Xolani Hadebe, who lives in Skhakhane Road in KwaZayeka, said his father, Eric Ha­ debe, who died in 2011, applied for a house several  years  ago.  However,  a  foundation was built in July 2014 and a few days later walls  were  constructed.  Hadebe  said  construction  of  the  walls begun  even  though  an  inspector  had  not done an inspection of the foundation and authorised that construction work contin­ ue.  He said once the walls had been com­ pleted,  an  inspector  came  around  and found there were issues with the founda­ tion  so  instructed  that  construction  is stopped until the issue with the foundation had  been  resolved.  But Hadebe said nothing has material­ ised  since  2014,  and  the  house  remains without windows, doors and a roof, among other  things.  Hadebe  added  that  when  he  reported the matter to the local offices of the VDA, he was told the house had been completed, which makes him suspect that material for building the house had been stolen by la­ bourers  working  for  the  contractor.

‘Hair­raising’ find  in  takeaway

Decrease in  fatal  N3  crashes  in  December DESPITE an overall increase in fatal crashes on the N3 toll route in 2017 (from 83 in 2016 to 119 between January and December 2017), N3TC has noted a slight improvement in the number of fatalities during the peak holiday season. “Considering the fact that traffic increased exponentially in December, and poor weather conditions were experienced at times, the decrease in the number of fatalities on the N3 Toll Route is significant,” says Con Roux, commercial manager of N3 Toll Concession. A total of 12 fatal crashes were recorded during December 2017 with 17 fatalities. Of the total number of fatal crashes, only one was a pedestrian fatality. During the same period in 2016, 14 fatal crashes were recorded with 22 fatalities, including six pedestrian fatalities. “Compared to 2016, last year was marred by a high number of fatal incidents. During 2017, 165 people lost their lives compared to 111 in 2016. The number of pedestrian fatalities were also higher in 2017 at 35 compared to 29 in 2016. It is clear that people remain vulnerable on our roads. We must remain committed and unwavering in our joint efforts to improve road safety,” says Roux. Fatal crashes impose an immense human and financial burden on society. The impact of the loss of a human life in terms of pain, grief and suffering is incalculable. In 2015, the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) in partnership with the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) reported human casualty costs comprised 69,3% of the total road traffic crash

N Saturday January 6 a tasty takeaway turned out to be repulsive for Thembi Zondi as she bit into a shawarma she had bought from an outlet in Church Street. “I had only taken two bites when on the third bite I felt something hard. When I looked I saw it was a hair net,” Zondi said. She said she was disgusted and worried she would pick up an illness from it. Zondi said she couldn’t take the shawarma back because she was working night shift and the store had closed, so she wrapped it up and kept it until the next day. “The only time I could go back was the next day before my shift started in the afternoon,” she said. Zondi said that Sunday afternoon she went back to the outlet to report about her find. “But they told me I had put the net in the shawarma, but I told them that when I made the discovery I showed my co-workers so I had witnesses,” Zondi said. She said, however, she was offered a refund, but is still not satisfied with the way the matter was handled. “I just want them to apologise and I want to be compensated should there be any medical complications that arise from this encounter,” Zondi said. A woman working at the outlet who opted to remain anonymous denied the takeaway had been bought there, saying their food is prepared in front of customers, which reduces the chances of such a mishap occurring. “Obviously they will deny any wrongdoing,” Zondi said.

cost of R142.95-billion. Fatal crashes constituted 43,4% of the total cost. According to the report, a fatal crash costs the SA economy as much as R5.4 million, while a “damage only” crash costs an average of R48 500. “N3TC remains concerned about the severity of crashes on the N3 toll route, which often involves only single vehicles. A recent single light vehicle crash appears to have been caused by a tyre blow-out which resulted in three fatalities. During the December holiday season, 18 public transport vehicles were involved in crashes. Considering that public transport vehicles carry the most precious goods – human lives – this high number is extremely disturbing,“ says Roux. The main types of crashes recorded on the N3 Toll Route from January to December 2017, included: • vehicles leaving the road (26.1% of crashes); • vehicles rolling (22.3% of crashes); and • head or tail collisions, both moving and stationary vehicles (13.6% of crashes) “N3TC wishes to extend its appreciation to the sterling efforts made by the emergency services, law enforcement officers and numerous volunteers throughout the holiday season to support and enhance safety on the N3 toll route. However, road safety cannot only be the responsibility of law enforcement- and road and traffic management agencies. Every driver and every passenger should make it their business to make our roads safe. “High risk behaviour on our roads is totally unacceptable and civil society should not condone or tolerate this,” says Roux. - Supplied

Houses flood  in  Azalea  A1 MAKHOSANDILE  ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com SOME residents in Azalea A1 in Mbambo Road say in heavy rain their houses are flooded and their furniture is damaged. Resident Gladys Ndlovu said this has happened to her since 2012, which eventually forced her to move out. “Sometimes when the water flowed inside the house the electricity would go out. “The water flows into the house so much that it is difficult to block with towels and it flows in through the kitchen door and out the other end at the living room door,” Ndlovu said. She said she has reported the matter to the community leaders who told her the municipality should resolve the matter, but nothing has been done since. Ndlovu’s neighbour, Linah Dlamini, was forced to throw out her wardrobe after recent heavy rain flooded her home. Residents say the problem is with the topography of the area and the drainage system.

Dlamini said her family and neighbours have dug trenches to drain the water, but this too has been of no help. Zandile Mkhupha said this issue resulted in a toilet collapsing some years ago. She said there used to be a trench just above their homes which ensured the rain water flowed to the street rather than into their yard. “But no one takes care of that trench anymore, it has now become a footpath,” she said. Mkhupha believes that if the trench was dug again and with cement plastered it would solve the problem when it rains. Nonkululeko Majola, who lived in Ndlovu’s house said the water has caused considerable damage to the interior walls and tiles. “Even the toilet [on the side of the house from where the water flows] is full of sand, which is pushed by the water and we cannot use it at the moment,” she said. The residents say they fear that if this goes on unattended their houses will eventually collapse.

Back­to­school shopping  is  costly MAKHOSANDILE  ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

T

HE beginning of the new year can be a time of immense financial strain for many parents preparing to send their young ones back to school. In January many parents’ pockets are “hung over” from the festive season spending and buying uniforms, stationery and lunch box items become an added burden on their wallets. Echo spoke to parents about their stress and monetary struggles at backto-school time. Sthabile Mhlongo from Ashdown said she bought uniforms, stationery and necessities for her son who will be in Grade 2 in December to “avoid the January rush”. Mhlongo said the stationery list was sufficient as she feels most of the items are a necessity for her son’s education. “Looking back at Grade 1, by the end of the year [2017] my son had used all the items on the stationery list,” she said. Mhlongo spent R1 700 on back-toschool shopping, an amount she concedes rises every year. Mandisa Madiya, whose child is in Grade 1 at an independent CBD school, said back-to-school shopping is costly. “But I had prepared myself by saving. I paid my child’s fees in December, so I was not really affected because I had prepared.” Madiya added that when she first looked at her child’s stationery list she felt some items were unnecessary. “But when we did our routine par-

ent visits [when her child was in Grade R] I realised all the items were necessary and whatever my child had not used was given back to us, which is fine,” she said. She added parents at her child’s school play an active role to ensure it is functional, which includes taking part in the school’s fund-raising efforts. However, for some parents, there are costs that are non-essential and in certain instances schools can help parents spend less on the back-to-school items. Zothile Nzimande from Imbali Unit J is one such parent who feels the requirement that each pupil provides 12 toilet paper rolls per term is expensive. “Children leave school at around 1.30pm going on 2pm, and over weekends they are not at school so that does not justify how a child would need so much toilet paper,” Nzimande said. She further took issue with glue sticks, saying that since her two children attend a government school these should be provided by the school. Nzimande believes teachers take the glue sticks and give them to their own children. When it comes to uniforms, she said: “Children are required to have two sets of uniforms which becomes an added cost, where do the schools expect us to get that money from?” She suggested that schools should allow parents to have uniforms made at a lower cost rather than compel them to buy from expensive suppliers, with the school badge being the only item they have to purchase at a central point.

Back to  school  –  remember  safety  and  health A NEW year, a fresh start, more to learn and spending time with friends and new ones to come. It is back to school. Are you ready? ER24 advises parents and children who are preparing for the start of school to keep in mind their safety and health. SAFETY Children should be vigilant at all times. Tips  for  children: If you walk to and back home from school, try to do so in a group. Never walk through secluded areas. If you see someone behaving suspiciously, get away from the person immediately and report the incident. Ensure that valuables such as cellular phones and other electronic devices are not visible. Know the rules of the road. Do not jaywalk. Cross roads where you are allowed to but ensure that it is safe to do so. Never accept or ask a stranger for a lift. Leave home early enough to ensure that you are at school on time. For those who are dropped off and picked up from school, parents and/or guardians or others responsible for doing so, should ensure this is done safely. If the area around the school is busy, be patient. Be careful of other vehicles in the area and children who are walking past. Children must be appropriately restrained in a vehicle. Parents and/or guardians should ensure that lift clubs or any other form of transport that is organised for children is safe. Know who is transporting the child. Children who feel unsafe in these vehicles should report it to their parents and/or guardians. Always keep a list of emergency numbers to contact in case it is needed. Children and parents and/or guardians should have a close relationship and build on trust. If you decide to go somewhere after school or spend time with friends, always ask or let par-

ents and/or guardians know where you are going and what time they should expect you back. HEALTH As long as we feel fine we do not have to worry right? Wrong. The earlier you take care of your health, the better. Just a few small changes in your child’s lunch box and daily routine can make a world of difference. Below are some tips: • Lead a balanced lifestyle. A balanced lifestyle means healthy eating, getting enough rest and sleep, exercise and reducing stress. • A healthy eating plan can prevent certain illnesses as well as help improve your energy. You should include fruits and vegetables in your eating plan as they are full of antioxidants and vitamins. • Cut down on the fatty foods, salt and sugar. • Refrain from smoking, drinking alcohol and talking drugs.It is vital that you get enough rest and sleep. • Give yourself enough time to study instead of pushing too hard at the last minute. Rather give yourself enough time to understand and ask someone for help with problems you are encountering. • Get involved in sporting activities. Regular exercise can help you stay fit. • Do not to expose yourself to too much sunlight. Exposing your skin to the sun’s rays for a long period of time increases the risk of developing skin cancer. Use approved sunscreen to protect your skin and drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. If you are a victim of bullying, any other form of abuse at home or school, or struggling to cope mentally, report or seek the help of a trusted person such as a parent and/or guardian, counsellor, teacher or principal. In case of a medical emergency, contact ER24 on 084 124. - Supplied

Napierville girl  lands  role  in  ‘Isibaya’

Alicia von  Locherenberg. PHOTO:  SUPPLIED

LETHIWE MAKHANYA >>lethiwe.makhanya@media24.com

P GA 1 THENOLE 1 UTH

OSTING videos of her speaking Zulu on social media not only helped her get 1 000 000 views, it landed her a role in Isibaya. Alicia von Locherenberg (17), from Napierville made her debut on Isibaya as Lulu last Thursday. Isibaya airs on Mzansi Magic Channel 161 on DStv from Monday to Friday at 8.30pm. Alicia told Maritzburg Fever it has always been her dream to be in the entertainment industry, but didn’t think it would happen so soon. “When I received a call from an agency last year telling me they had seen my videos on social media and Isibaya directors wanted to meet with me, I was so shocked. “In December I flew to Johannesburg to meet with Isibaya directors. “After the meeting I was given the script and told I had landed the role of Lulu. “I am so excited. I will continue to post my videos on social media like I have been doing all the time,” said Alicia. Alicia, who shot to fame last year after sharing a video of her saying qhubeka

f

Londeka on YouTube and social media, said this is her first acting debut. “My first day on set I was scared and cried a few times. Being the youngest actress working with big actors and big actresses can be scary. “However, I am enjoying it. I know the entertainment industry is tough, but I will keep pushing.” Alicia, in Grade 11 at Linpark High, said although her videos were only recognised last year, she started recording and posting them in Grade 8. “I was happy with the 50 views. My aim was for people to see my personality - it needed to be felt,” she said. In primary school Alicia took Zulu as an additional language because she wanted to learn it. “I grew up around Zulu-speaking people and it was easy for me to grasp it. My friends are Zulu-speaking.” Alicia is back in Pietermaritzburg and continuing with her studies, however, she will travel to Johannesburg to shoot scenes. Alicia is also a model under Irene’s Model Agency. To see more of Alicia’s video follow her on Instagram: @Alicia_vonl and Facebook: Alicia von Locherenberg.

Letoya Madlala  (left)  and  her  mother  Londeka  ask  sponsors  to  help  the  young  model  travel  overseas  for  an  international  talent  show. 

ITTLE Letoya Madlala (9) from Ashdown will be one of 250 young actors, models, musicians and dancers jetting off to the United States to take part in a talent show in Orlando, Florida should she get help with funds. There Letoya will showcase her modelling skills to casting agencies, among others. She was chosen as part of a delegation that represents South Africa at the International Arts Talent Showcase, an annual event that was held in Krugersdorp last year. Her mother Londeka said this is an opportunity of a lifetime for her daughter, which has also afforded her the chance to add to her expertise. “On January 3 she attended a boot camp, where she received acting and dancing lessons which improved her chances of success at the main event,” Londeka said. Letoya started modelling when she was younger and has collected numerous crowns, her most recent ones being Miss Heroine 2017 and Miss Edendale 2017. “She was born for this. I think God gave her this talent, which is why I have to make sure she uses it.” Letoya said she is elated about her upcoming trip and hopes to return home with a number of lessons. “I want children from my home

town, who are in the same age group as me, to understand it is important for them to use their talent because it will open many doors,” Letoya said. However, the young model’s travels abroad hinge on her and her mother’s ability to raise money to fund the trip. Letoya needs R72 000 to cover all the expenses, which includes costs for boot camp training. An additional R38 000 is needed to cover the costs for her mother who will accompany her, which means an estimated R110 000 has to be raised and paid to the International Arts Talent Showcase by the end of March. Londeka, a single parent and selfemployed hairdresser, said she has raised some money which funded auditions and Letoya’s boot camp through her business. “Now I am appealing to sponsors and donors to help with as much as they can afford, which will go a long way to ensuring Letoya gets to represent the country overseas,” Londeka said. If anyone is able to assist Letoya, contact Londeka on 073 639 5120, who will provide the banking details of the International Arts Talent Showcase or they can deposit directly into Leyota’s bank account.

A  young  entrepreneur  makes  a  very  good  impression  on  a  man  with  money.  A  girl’s  determination  to  become  a  suc­ cess  is  only  slightly  compromised  by  peer  pressure.  Friday  January  19  A  woman  believes  she  is  home  free,  but  has  reckoned  without  a  connection  from  the  past  showing  up.  Kgosi  is  pleased  with  his  sister’s  success,  but  Gloria  is  less  than  impressed.  Lin­ diwe  starts  to  fear  that  she  may  have  promised  too  much. Monday  January  22 Lerumo  receives  disturbing  information  which  makes  him  very  suspicious  of  two  people  who  have  a  connection.

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.

Stewarts take  on  the  Dusi  A

S many crews start their final preparations for the 2018 FNB Dusi Canoe Marathon from Febru­ ary 15 to 17, the father­and­son pair of Michael and Liam Stewart will be hoping to replicate their im­ pressive  top  50  performance  in  2016. For father Michael, 2017 ended on a tough note aft­ er he tore his calf muscle on the final portage of the men’s 45­49 K1 showdown at the ICF Canoe Marathon Masters  World  Cup  in  Pietermaritzburg.  The 47­year­old was pushing for a bronze medal until  disaster  struck  and  finished  sixth  overall. Liam (18) will be taking on the FNB Dusi for the third time following a 45th in 2016 with his father on debut  and  then  a  K1  debut  in  2017.  The experience of 21 Dusi’s has meant that Michael is  in  the  process  of  being  forced  to  steer  the  boat against  his  will. “At the Fish I threw Liam into the front of the boat, but he is adamant that I drive at Dusi,” Michael said. “If we qualify for A Batch that will mean that I have qualified for A Batch 20 times in a row! Liam says that

that is too much pressure for  him as we only have one more  chance  to  qualify.” There are many family combinations that take on the Dusi and for the Michael there is no better feeling than finishing the three­day adventure with his off­ spring. “You cannot describe the feeling of getting to Blue Lagoon  with  your  son. Liam’s paddling career began when he was 15 at the Fish River Canoe Marathon and Michael and his wife were happy to see his interest in the sport grow organically. “We never put Liam under any pressure to take up paddling and when he was 13 he told me he wanted to  paddle  the  Fish. “He’s now done five Fish and he’s only 18. I still have the upper hand over him, but I reckon halfway through this year he’ll be putting me under some serious pres­ sure.”  More information can be found at www.dusi.co.za                                                                                                           ­  Supplied.

Appeal for  sponsorship MAKHOSANDILE  ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

T

HE Edendale Football Association (EFA) is asking the public and business fraternity to assist its competition committee with sponsorships to get its league tournament under way.

EFA’s Sanele Vilakazi said: “The tournament will involve 22 sides in our domestic league. It will be a knockout tournament with winners advancing to the next round. The tournament fixtures will be slotted in-between league games throughout the following

months.” The committee requests that benefactors assist with acquiring a winner’s trophy, medals - gold, silver, bronze - and football kits and training bibs. “These essentials will make the tournament a success and we appeal to anyone who will be able to

assist,” Vilakazi said. He said a quote has been made for the “essentials” needed to make the tournament “a success” and can be broken down as follows: • One bib set for seniors - R386. • One kit set (tops and shorts) of 14 for seniors R1 199.

Organisers create  new  trail  routes  for  ‘Witness’  marathon TO make The Witness Medihelp Maritzburg City Marathon even more popular, organisers are again offering trail runs to those not keen on the main event next month. Lynton Kynloch, an avid trail runner and enthusiastic organiser, has devised new routes for the seven kilometre and 16 km trails, which are not too technical and will suit novices as well as regular trail runners. Entrants will receive T-shirts and there are medals and small cash prizes for the first, second and third men and women in each event available, according to race director John Hall. The marathon takes place on Sunday, February 25, while the trail runs are set for 7.30 am the previous day and cut off at 10 am. Timing will be done by chip and times will be recorded mat to mat.

Participants may enter the 16 km and cut off at seven kilometre, but only 16 km entrants will be allowed to continue for the second loop of the “figure 8” course. “Entries for the two distances of the trail will, for safety and environmental reasons, be limited to the first 300 per event,” stressed Hall. Entry for the seven kilometre is R100 and the 16 km is R130. Entries made before February 1 entitle the participant to a free race T-shirt at registration. After February 1, the price remains the same, but no free shirt is handed out, while medals go to all official finishers. Locally, pre-entries can be handed in at Poobie Naidoo Sports in Boshoff Street or on the web at www. pmb42.co.za — Sports Reporter.

• One large winner’s trophy - R180 • 60 medals at R11 each - R660. The above breakdown brings the subtotal to R2 425, excluding VAT, which is R340 making the total R2 764.50. Anyone who can sponsor the EFA must contact Vilakazi on 079 479 4490.

EFA’s ‘oldest  club’  aims  to  keep  advancing Mnyandu  United  Football  Club. PHOTO:  SUPPLIED

MAKHOSANDILE ZULU >>makhosandile.zulu@media24.com

O

NE of  the  oldest  clubs  in  the  Edendale  Foot­ ball  Association  (EFA),  Mnyandu  United  FC found  its  feet  in  2013  with  the  assistance  of an  unlikely  individual  by  the  name  of  Sfiso  Dladla.  Manager  and  head  coach  of  United,  also  known as  “Abafana  bangaPhezulu”,  Dladla  had  played  against  the  team  during  his  footballing  career,  but  in  2013  when  he  moved                            to  the  side’s  home  base,  KwaMnyandu,  he  was  involved  in  its  reformation.    “When  I  got  there  I  found  the  players  were  playing  just  for  fun,”  Dladla  said. This  prompted  him  to  reinvigorate  the  sporting code  in  the  area  by  re­establishing  United  and  tak­ ing  it  back  to  competitive  football.  The  team  had  since  been  runners­up  in  an  Easter  tournament  in  2015  and  came  third  in  a  knockout  competition  in  2016.  United  is  currently  fourth  on  the  EFA  log  with 43  points,  but  Dladla  admits  the  boys  had  a  diffi­

cult run  at  the  start  of  this  season.  “We  eventually  had  a  talk  with  the  players  and told  them  that  the  start  of  the  season  is  a  crucial    time  and  losing  games  means  dropping  important  points,”  Dladla    said.  Key  players  that  Dladla  said      he  had  to  get  through  to  ensure  the  side’s  per­ formance  improved  are  centre  Philani  Njilo,  cap­ tain,  an    all­rounder,  but  who  usually  plays  de­ fence,  Musawenkosi  Madlala    and  striker  Thamsan­ qa  Mthembu. “Those  players  form  the  backbone  of  our  team,”  Dladla  said.    He  said  Madlala  has  the  abili­ ty  to  make  penetrative  runs  into  the  danger  area  of  opponents.  “Thamsanqa  is  a  committed  player  who  some­ times  plays  as  a  lone  striker,  but  that  does  not  stop  him  from  scoring  goals,  he  has  so  many  goals  and  hat­tricks  I  have  lost  count,”  United’s  coach  said.    The  club’s  goal  is  to  keep  advancing  from  one  division  to  the  next.  Dladla  thanked  Mayelo  Mncwabe  for  support­ ing  the  side  with  sponsorships  and  donations. 

The year  of  the  Soccer  World  Cup THE quadrennial international football tournament - the Soccer World Cup - is to take place from June 14 to July 15 after Russia was awarded the hosting rights on December 2, 2010. This will be the first World Cup held in Europe since 2006. All but one of the stadium venues are in Russia, west of the Ural Mountains to keep travel time manageable. The soccer showpiece involves 32 countries, including 31 teams determined through qualifying competitions and the automatically qualified host team, Russia. Of the 32 teams, 20 will be making backto-back appearances following the last tournament in 2014, including defending champions Germany, while Iceland and Panama will both be making their first appearances at a Fifa World Cup. A total of 64 matches will be played in 12 venues in 11 cities. The final will take place on July 15 in Moscow at the Luzhniki Stadium. The winners of the World Cup will qualify for the 2021 Fifa Confederations Cup. The Russians shocked the world in 2017 when the chairman of the local organising committee (LOC), Vitaly Mutko resigned. Mutko was banned for life from Olympics after a report, commissioned by the International Olympics committee, concluded he had run a state-sponsored doping programme in Russian sport. The Russia 2018 LOC said it was with

“great regret” it had learnt of Mutko’s decision. “The change in the leadership of the Russia 2018 Local Organising Committee will not affect the preparation of the 2018 Fifa World Cup,” the Russia 2018 media office said. “Our goal remains unchanged - to host the tournament at its best organisational level for the fans and participants.” Fifa has also acknowledged Mutko’s resignation and said it would work with the LOC under its new leadership. The Pietermaritzburg Safa executive member and owner of law firm Poobie Govindansamy, who was part of the SA 2010 officials, says the 2018 World in Russia will go smoothly as expected because Fifa was working closely with them. “World Cup in Russia will be one of the best events, remember Fifa is fully behind them and will wisely guide them.” - Echo contributor.
