New principal raring to go BYRONE ATHMAN >>Byrone.Athman@media24.com

S

hana Reddy may have bitten off more than he can chew according to some, but by accepting the position of principal of Woodlands Secondary, Reddy said that the challenges he faces will be beneficial to the pupils and community. “This school has had a problem with discipline over the years and that it why I vowed to improve discipline of the pupils here and the pass rate in my interview,” said Reddy. Having taken over as principal of the school after teaching for 31 years, Reddy stated that one of his main objectives is to take the school’s 71% pass rate achieved last year and bump it up to 90% in the least. “It is going to be a difficult task and there have been many questions surrounding why I would take on such challenge but I believe with the help of my staff and pupils that we can do it,” he said. Beginning his career at the Stanger ML Sultan Secondary School back in 1987, Reddy went on to teach in Heather Secondary for 28 years before taking up his current position ata Woodlands Secondary. The principal credits his profession

choice down to it being thought of as a respectable career and said that through teaching he was able to help the community by nurturing future pupils. Reddy called former pupils to assist the school in reclaiming its esteemed reputation. He added that there are many ways he wants to improve the school, such as implementing extra lessons for the matric pupils as well as constantly monitoring attendance so as to prevent them from roaming the street.

A panel including (from left) Roshan Morar, Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene, Zweli Mkhize, Melanie Veness and Themba Mathe answer questions from the audience.

A ‘new dawn’ for South African economy BYRONE ATHMAN >>Byrone.Athman@media24.com MORAR Incorporated, a chartered accountants and registered auditors firm, held a business breakfast early on Saturday where Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene attended and addressed business people in attendance. Nene captivated the audience with his speech, titled “A New Dawn for the South African Economy.” He said that ‘dawn’ symbolised an opportunity to reflect and to begin fresh and that, although the recent drop in the economy was worrisome, it was a much-needed wake-up call. “Government now needs to deliver on the faults in our economy that have been highlighted in the recent drop. We need to improve our efforts in order to ease pressure on small medium enterprises (SME’s).” Nene maintained that South Africa has the potential to grow at a rapid pace but issues such as entrepreneurship and youth unemployment needed to be addressed. “Youth unemployment remains high and most of these youth have identified distance as one of the main factors contributing to unemployment. We also do not have enough SME’s in the country,” said the minister. According to Nene,acting against corruption in the country is pivotal to grow the economy and government has set ambitious targets for it to achieve growth. “The new dawn is on the horizon and the road ahead is not easy and we cannot walk it alone. We must continue to walk it together,” said Nene.

Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene giving the main address, titled ‘A New Dawn for the South African Economy.’ After his speech, a question-and-answer panel was held whereby Nene, managing director Roshan Morar, CEO of the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Commerce Melanie Veness and acting CEO of the Ithala Development Corporation Themba Matha answered the audience’s questions.

Time for a financial health check NOW may be a good time for a financial health check. It’s that time of year, when you think about putting a thicker duvet on the bed, dusting off the heater and consider getting a flu shot. When looking at your financial health, here are three important things to consider. • ASSESS YOUR FINANCIAL GOALS: When considering your goals, be practical and realistic. Setting too many goals can be as bad as setting one big, unrealistic goal. Rather set two or three smaller, more achievable goals. This makes it easier to stay focused and track progress.

• CHECK YOUR CREDIT SCORE: Everybody, from banks to retailers, landlords to car dealers, decide about your financial dependability based on the three figures that comprise your credit score. By law, you’re entitled to one free credit report a year from any of the credit bureaus. There are also alternatives. Some online financial tools, such as Pulse, enable you to get a free credit rating as often as you like (visit them at www.directaxis.co.za/pulse). What’s more, they can also provide information about how the rating is made up, how you can improve a poor rating and also makes it possible for you to track your progress over time. • REVIEW YOUR BUDGET: It’s something even the finance minister does — he calls it the midterm budget review. The reason for reviewing your budget is that some of the assumptions you made at the beginning of the year may no longer be true. For example, VAT has gone up and the cost of fuel has increased. This may mean you’re spending more than you anticipated and you might need to try and cut back further in order to reach your other financial goals. Think again of the triathlon analogy. You might look to see where else you can save on monthly expenditure to make up the shortfall, or speak to a financial advisor. — Supplied by Direct Axis

Life after drunk crashes with Caro Smit BYRONE ATHMAN >>Byrone.Athman@media24.com

L

OSING her child to a drunken driving incident 13 years ago left Caro Smit with two options. She could wallow in her grief and sadness or she could stand up and inspire change. She chose the latter. September 18, 2005 is a day etched into Smit’s memory as the day she lost her musician son, Chas Smit, who became a victim of a drunken driver. This day sparked what would later become South Africans Against Drunk Driving (SADD), an organisation started by Smit in January 2006. “Life changed dramatically for me and my family after my son was killed. It was like being amputated because my child was part of me,” said Smit. The incident saw Smit change drastically , saying it made her become a very straight forward person. “Wherever I go, people judge me and look at me as if I am a difficult person because of my stance on the matter of drunk driving” she says. Whenever she gets into her vehicle and onto the road, Smit says that she finds it hard to trust motorists. Smit, a psychiatric social worker, alcohol/drug counsellor and educator, left her previous job in order to run the SADD in the hope of putting an end to drunk driving, protecting families from needless deaths and to make a difference. “I want to make sure that those who drive drunk face the full might of the law but, most importantly, I want to educate and support victims of drunk crashes,” she said. One of her focal tasks since establishing SADD has been supporting families which she admitted can be difficult sometimes as every time she steps back into court to show the families support it is as if she is being traumatised again. “At the moment I am in court with a woman who was involved in a drunk crash. She is an engineer who now has paralysis due to a drunk driver who should have taken a taxi home after a rugby match but instead has now jeopardised this woman’s entire life because he thought he could drive,” said Smit.

Smit said that the night her son died sparked something in her and that she will continue to fight for the families who have been plagued throughout South Africa by drunk crashes.

“South Africa needs to become stricter on drunk crashes because these so called mistakes have major ramifications on the lives of the victims and those responsible for these drunk crashes must go to jail,” she said.

OBJECTIVES OF SADD: • Create awareness about the drinking and driving problem in South Africa and work with the law, and others, to pressurise the government into implementing proper and prohibitive law. Responsible driving generally only comes about because people are afraid of the legal and financial repercussions of their actions. • Request frequent random breath alcohol testing (RBT) all year. • Request that drivers licenses be suspended on a sliding scale as per the National Road Traffic Act . First offences — six months; second offence — five years; third or subsequent offences — 10 years or more. • Recommend that the professional drivers’ blood alcohol level (BAL) be changed from .02g per 100ml, to .00g per 100ml. • Test professional drivers routinely i.e. truck, bus and taxi drivers. • Ask for the introduction of a graduated sentencing and fining system that charges offenders according to the number of drinks a person is over the legal limit (similar to the fining system that has been implemented with speeding.) • Implementation of referral of drunk drivers and severely intoxicated trauma patients for substance abuse treatment. This should include information about units of alcohol and the effect of alcohol on driving skills. • To publish the names and blood alcohol level/breath alcohol content, (BAL/BAC) of offenders in newspapers around the country. • Request the government appoints more policemen to assist with drunk-driving issues, including charging drunk drivers, accompanying them for blood tests, and taking statements after car accidents. • Request the government have traffic officers on duty 24 hours a day, and especially after 12 pm on Friday and Saturday nights when many accidents happen. Increase the number of traffic officers. • Provide, via websites and in other ways, information to the public about alcohol, and especially the effects of alcohol in relation to driving, and about drunk driving court cases. Offer more talks, articles, posters on drinking and driving / effects on driving skills, units of Alcohol, etc. • Suggest that no open containers of alcohol should be allowed in a vehicle.

Dogs won’t be put down BYRONE ATHMAN >>Byrone.Athman@media24.com

T

HE two pitbulls that mauled an intruder to death last Friday will not be put down,according to the owner. During the early hours of Friday, 1 June, in Scottsville, the pitbull dogs Sandy and Riddick were in their back yard when two intruders scaled their back wall in order to break into the house,carrying various house-breaking equipment. Of the two intruders, one was escaped while the other was killed by the dogs. Later that morning the family’s domestic worker found the intruder’s body lying in the yard lifeless. Although the family were shaken up by the incident, they arrived at the conclusion that were it not for their dogs their house would have most likely been broken into. “I do not live here but after the incident my whole family had come to support us and wash the dogs,” said the owner of the dogs, Hlube Radebe. Radebe said that the dogs were part of his family and that they are all part of a pack. “My dogs have been quite shaken up since the incident but Sandy seems to have come around while Riddick still seems to be a bit down but all in all they are fine,” said Radebe.

Radebe said that he had done a lot of research before adopting the pets and trained himself and the dogs. “Even though a life was lost I am thankful for my dogs because my grandmother, aunt and their domestic worker were alone on the night of the incident,”said Radebe. He added that anything could have happened had the dogs not been there. “My grandmother is upset that a young black man has passed away but I am still thankful that my dogs were there and my grandmother has agreed that she still wants them to stay at her house,” said Radebe. Many people took to social media to support Radebe’s dogs by posting supportive and appreciative messages for the dogs. “Pitbull dogs are not for everyone and need to be cared for properly, especially during the first year,” said Radebe. According to the spokesperson for the Alexandra police,Captain Kholeka Mhlongo, the man who had escaped is yet to be found. The identity of the man who died was unknown and finger printing tests would be done to confirm his identity.

Rape victim’s mother fed up BYRONE ATHMAN >>Byrone.Athman@media24.com

CUSTOMER PARKING BEHIND SHOP ENTER FROM WILLIAMS STREET

THE mother of a 13-year-old girl who was raped last year in a rundown West Street, Pietemaritzburg house was left frustrated at the lack of closure her child has received as the case was yet again adjourned last Thursday after a police officer failed to pick her up from Chatsworth, where she now lives, for her to attend the trial. The mother told the Maritzburg Fever that the last year has been a traumatising one for her and her daughter as the man accused of raping her daughter has still not been sentenced. “Yes he has been denied bail but we would like to know that we never have to see this man again. He needs to spend the rest of his life in jail for what he did to my daughter,” she said. Last year in October, the mother who lived in a women’s shelter at the time, woke up and saw that her daughter was not in bed with her where she usually sleeps. She began to search for her but to no avail. The next morning she discovered her daughter, along with some of her friends, had sneaked out of the house to make their way to the house on West Street in order for one of her friends to see her boyfriend. SAPS Mountain Rise Detectives are interested in questioning the following person in photo (RIGHT). The person may be able to assist in providing information about a theft out of motor vehicle case which occurred on May 5 at Amod Road in Raisethorpe. The vehicles concerned are a red and grey Toyota Hilux and a light-blue Golf 6. Anyone with information regarding their whereabouts is asked to contact the following investigating officer Det/Const SS Mdladla on 083 471 6120 or 033 387 9691. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

The friend’s boyfriend, a foreign national, then forced the woman’s daughter to spend the night at the house and once she was asleep, crept into her bed where he allegedly raped her. The mother, along with the police, were then tipped off as to her daughter’s whereabouts where they forced their way into the house to conduct a search. The police then found the girl cowering in fear under the man’s bed and returned her to her mother and then arrested the man who has been in custody ever since. He was charged with statutory rape. After the incident, the mother and daughter relocated to Chatsworth. The mother said she was disappointed by the police officer for not fetching her daughter. She had to find her own transport to court but arrived late, resulting in the case being adjourned. “Since relocating to Chatsworth the police confirmed that they would pick us up on the next date of the case and they have failed me and my daughter,” she said. The mother added that now they would have to wait until August when the trial will be back again to put this part of their life in the past.

“We need help” BYRONE ATHMAN >>Byrone.Athman@media24.com

FTER being told by a doctor two weeks ago that their daughter is blind in her left eye, the Durgaparsad family feel like they’re reliving their nightmare all over again. Five years ago Krystnn Durgaparsad was run over by a motorcycle twice. She is now in a fragile state, emotionally, after another setback in regards to her vision and the family feels like their old wounds are opening up again. They would like a second opinion on Krystnn’s eye and to find out if treatment to try and recover her sight, is an option. “After years of trying to be positive and moving on with our lives, for this to happen shows how badly this accident has affected our daughter’s life,” said Krystnn’s father, Shane. The accident, according to medical reports, left Krystnn, who is now nine-years-old, with a long cut on her face, skull and lung damage, swelling on her knees, a torn muscle in her heart and now blindness in her left eye. “Just recently our eldest daughter told us that the children were teasing Krystnn in school, and we know that she has been having nightmares where she wakes up and cries for me,” said Krystnn’s mother, Vanessa. Vanessa said that, since her daughter was run over by the motorcycle, the family’s lifestyle has been affected. Vanessa, who has had a long battle with, and still continues to fight cancer said that she is unable to work because of her condition, leaving Shane as the only breadwinner for the family. She added that, although they are not asking for money, they could use help in various areas where problems have arisen since the accident. “One of our main concerns are that no one in our family has received counselling since that day. My two children Kiaan and Kaylee witnessed their sister being run,” said Vanessa. Another problem the family faces is that, from the time they laid a claim to the Road Accident Fund (RAF), they have not met their lawyer or heard from him and, recently, he has come under media scrutiny for allegedly being involved in fraud. “We have found in the media that the man that is supposed

to be helping us is an alleged fraudster.We do not have the funds to hire a lawyer but would love for a reputable lawyer to take on our case so that we can see that Krystnn receives the best treatment she can get,” said Shane. The family would also prefer to get a second opinion on Krystnn’s eye, stating that they would love to know if anything else can be done. “We do not want money, and even prefer if anyone helping could deal directly with the professionals that can assist us with a second opinion on Krystnn’s eye. We just want our daughter and family to have normal lives,” said Vanessa.

OUTH Africans and Indians alike came together to celebrate the birth of the Satyagraha movement after a young Mahatma Gandhi was kicked off a “whites only” train at the Pietermaritzburg Railway Station 125 years ago. Hundreds of guests travelled from far and wide to witness a special re-enactment of the historic event on Thursday that marked the beginning of what Gandhi termed “Satyagraha”, which is described as a form of non-violent resistance. Guests were treated to a live display of

the events that occurred on that day when Gandhi was thrown off the train with his luggage. Nirvikar and Visharad Bundhoo embodied a young and old Gandhi respectively through their acting. A two-sided bronze bust of Gandhi was also unveiled after the display by the actors, depicting both his younger and older self and symbolising his transformation from a barrister to the world famous “Mahatma”. The bust comes from the mind of Birad Rajaram Yajnik, weighs 100 km and was made in Hydrabad, India. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi

spoke over a live feed from India of how Gandhi not only liberated India, but of how he gave hope to others around the world. “No one knows what was in Gandhi’s mind after he was thrown off that train but what he did after that lead a revolution and laid the foundation down for other political figures,” said Modi. Granddaughter to Gandhi, Ela Gandhi, also gave a speech where she outlined that what she took from her grandfather was that change is a part of our everyday life. “The most important thing to remember is that change is part of our lives. How we change will decide if we become better human beings or not,” said Gandhi.

THE Mandela Gandhi Youth Summit, hosted by the Winston Churchill Theatre last Wednesday, celebrated the lives and work of these two individuals with various speakers paying testament to them. Celebrating 125 years of the Satyagraha Movement, the practice of non-violent resistance coined by Mahatma Gandhi , and 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela; guest speakers paid tribute to the two stalwarts and spoke about how the concepts depicted in their life’s work need to be explored now, more than ever. Pietermaritzburg Gandhi Memorial Committee Chairperson David Gengan spoke about how the Satyagraha concept was first established in Pietermaritzburg the day Gandhi was thrown from the train. “This is where the idea of Satyagra-

ha first stemmed from. This is where a timid, shy lawyer became a public figure,” said Gengan. Gengan also reflected on the fact that, like Gandhi who chose not to harbour hate in his heart after being thrown off the train, Mandela became a public figure due to not harbouring hate in his heart after serving 27 years in jail , instead choosing to move past it. Former Msunduzi municipal manager Rob Haswell said that this part of Pietermaritzburg history is unique to most of the history of any city in South Africa and the world. “Pietermaritzburg can show you authentic history of where Gandhi has been. We know where he walked and where he fell,” said Haswell. Haswell questioned if there would have been such leaders as Mandela, Martin Luther King and Barack Obama had it not been for Gandhi. “These leaders picked up Gandhi’s lessons,” proclaimed Haswell.

Pop Up Show will be performing some of Paul Simon’s timeless hits. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

A tribute to Paul Simon S

INCE their run-away success tribute shows, Johnny Cash, Memphis 55 and Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pop Up Show are set to deliver a production that will not only have you reminiscing but also singing along to the remarkable work of Paul Simon. The show is their most challenging task to date and is a “stripped down” production based on Paul Simons’ Road to Graceland. Rob and Garth Warren (The Black Lapels), together with the sensational “stick man” Gareth Gale and the enigmatic Rusty Red on lead guitar, step away from their traditional use of electric content and, instead, strip their rock ‘n roll spurs for a more purist, acoustic singer-songwriter approach. For the Paul Simon fans out there, a set

list with “favourites” awaits from Graceland to You Can Call Me Al, not excluding a string of other classics such as Homeless, The Boxer, Gumboots, Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes…and then the brilliance of Mother and Child Reunion, each beautifully polished and delicately delivered. Purchase tickets through Webtickets and catch the performance on June 29 and June 30 at The Hexagon Theatre at 7. 30 pm. COMPETITION: Visit the Maritzburg Fever’s Facebook page to find out how you could win tickets to the show.

All about headaches A HEADACHE is a very common condition that causes pain and discomfort in the head, scalp, or neck. It is estimated that seven in 10 people have at least one headache each year. Headaches can sometimes be mild but, in many cases, they can cause severe pain that makes it difficult to concentrate at work and to perform other daily activities. Luckily, most headaches can be managed with medication and lifestyle changes. TYPES OF HEADACHES There are three common types of headaches: tension headaches, cluster headaches, and migraines. Tension Headaches Tension headaches are the most common type of headache and occur most frequently in women over the age of 20. These headaches are often described as feeling like a tight band around the head.They are caused by a tightening of the muscles in the neck and scalp. Poor posture and stress are contributing factors. Tension headaches usually last for several minutes but, in some cases, they can last for several days. They also tend to be recurrent. Cluster Headaches Cluster headaches are non-throbbing headaches that cause excruciatingly severe, burning pain on one side of the head or behind the eye and usually cause the eyes to tear up and nasal congestion or rhinorrhea (runny nose). These headaches can last for extended periods of time, known as the cluster period. The cluster period can be as long as six weeks. Cluster headaches may occur every day and more than once a day. The cause is unknown however, this type of headache is rare and generally affects men between the ages of 20 and 40. Alcohol intake may trigger a cluster headache during a cluster period. Migraines Migraines are the most severe and complex type of headache. Researchers believe they may be caused by changes in the activity of nerve pathways and brain chemicals. Genetic factors and environmental factors are also thought to affect a person’s susceptibility to developing migraines. They are very intense, throbbing headaches that affect one side of the head.Migraines can also increase sensitivity to light and noise. They may last anywhere from several hours to several days. TYPES OF MIGRAINES Nearly one out of every four households includes someone with a migraine. Migraines are one of the top 20 most

disabling illnesses in the world. Among adolescents, migraines are more common in boys than in girls. Among adults, however, migraines occur more frequently in women than in men. They are also more likely to affect those who have family members that often experience migraines. There are two basic types of migraine headaches: migraine with aura and migraine without aura.Auras are visual disturbances that consist of bright spots, flashing lights,or moving lines.In some cases,auras cause a temporary loss of vision. These visual disturbances occur about 30 minutes before the migraine begins and can last for 15 minutes.Migraines with aura tends to be less severe and disabling than migraines without aura. However, most people experience migraines without aura. Migraine Triggers The exact cause of migraines isn’t known, however, there are numerous factors that are known to trigger the onset of migraine episodes. The most common triggers below. • fluctuating hormone levels, especially among boys going through puberty, and women • stress or anxiety • fermented and pickled foods • cured meats and aged cheeses • certain fruits, including bananas, avocados, and citrus • skipped meals • too little or too much sleep • bright or strong lights • fluctuations in atmospheric pressure due to changing weather • drinking alcohol • caffeine withdrawal SYMPTOMS Dangerous Headache Symptoms Most headaches aren’t symptoms of a life-threatening illness, however you should contact your doctor if a headache occurs after head trauma. You should also call your doctor immediately if a headache is accompanied by the and of the below symptoms. • drowsiness • fever • vomiting • facial numbness • slurred speech • weakness in an arm or a leg • convulsions • confusion Pressure around the eyes with a yellowish-green nasal discharge and a sore throat also should be evaluated by your doctor. Speak to one of our friendly pharmacists at Royal Pharmacy about headaches. We are even available on Whatsapp/Facebook to see to your queries. (Tel: 033 815 1690) — Supplied

Eco-Greenie Day W

ARTBURG Kirchdorf School’s Pre-primary dedicated June 6 to learning about the world, keeping it clean and making it look beautiful for all to enjoy. They had an “eco-greenie” day, which held an exciting handful of learning experiences designed by the dedicated teachers. The children learnt about recycling and the dif-

ferent rubbish bins that are used to separate the litter; they did a litter parade outside the pre-primary into the main school; and even got to plant new flowers into their sensory garden in their playground. They ended with a picnic in their playground garden. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their day and all the activities that the teachers had planned.

A SOUTH African-dominated podium capped off an incredible race day on Sunday as close to 19 000 runners bravely took on the 90,184 km challenge from Pietermaritzburg to Durban in the 93rd edition of the Comrades Marathon. Many spectators braved the cold

morning to show their support for the runners,turning up in hundreds to spur the racers on throughout the race from the side-lines. For many this was the first time they had taken on the gruelling marathon and for one man in particular it was a dream come true to finish the race on his first attempt. Mfundo Mkhize, a long-time admirer of the race, finally decided to embark

on the journey and completed his race in 10 hours and 38 minutes. Bulwer resident Bongmusa Mthembu won the race for the third time, finishing five minutes ahead of the nearest challenger and became the second South African to win the race two times in a row after Bruce Fordyce. Mthembu said he felt privileged to win the Comrades again and that he was proud of his fellow countrymen and women for dominating the South African race. Another South African, Ann Ashworth, was the first woman to cross the finish line in a time of 06:10:04. Pietermaritzburg resident and Comrades Marathon enthusiast Duncan Anthon said it was an absolute pleasure to get up in the morning and cheer the runners on at the beginning of the race, and then follow it throughout the day on television. “It is really a fantastic thing to see these runners so dedicated to complete the race. “I hope that one day I’ll be amongst them,” said Anthon.

THE Wartburg 7’s capped off a sensational start to the season, winning back-to-back titles in the Wembley 7’s league. Coach L. Johnson said that the tournament brought out many good performances and individual brilliance from his players. “After the festival it was evident that our hard work paid off and was necessary,” said Johnson. He hailed the efforts of the squad, which he said are a mixed bunch of both young and experienced players and noted it as a good sign for next year’s rugby squad. “The boys played with courage and determination at all times, resulting in an unbeaten season in the

Wembley 7’s league. The boys showed incredible flair and with ball in hand and space to play the boys were very difficult to defend,” said Johnson, who added that through this they were able to score 50 tries in 11 games. Playing in the finals of the Wembley 7’s league, Wartburg met Curro Mt Richmore, who they faced earlier in the pool stages and proved to be very tough opposition. “We knew the final was going to be a tough encounter and that our boys would have to step up and play as a cohesive unit in order to beat them, which they did. “The result at the end of the match was 19-12 in our favour,” said Johnson, boasting that this result meant they had retained their Wembley 7’s title.
