ORE than 20 000 eThekwini Municipality employees are threatening to down tools, claiming they are owed millions of rand in back pay following a Supreme Court of Appeal ruling. The employees, some who are allegedly owed up to R200 000 each, are to decide this week on dates for possible strike action, which they warn will “bring the city to a halt”. They are angry that eight months after the appeal court reversed the conditions of service agreement – implemented by the city in 2007 – and ordered the employer to back pay affected employees who had been stripped of allowances and other benefits, they are still waiting for their money. In October, in the wake of the ruling, city manager S’bu Sithole established a technical task team to quantify the financial implications for the municipality. There were fears at the time that the ruling could bankrupt the city, but Sithole had dismissed this. According to municipal union sources, eThekwiniowesworkersalmostR100million, which could have a crippling effect on the municipality’s finances. The municipality, however, contends that whatitowedemployeeswouldbeoff-setbythe monies it was owed by some employees who had been overpaid when the conditions of service agreement was implemented. The unions have vowed to fight any attempts to get employees to pay back money. They believe the city is in contravention of the court ruling. On Monday night, city representatives met with the SA Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) and the Independent Municipal and Allied Trade Union (Imatu) and a report by the task team was discussed. Imatu’s regional manager Themba Shezi, said that the negotiations had been conducted in good faith, but they had still not found common ground on the city’s attempts to get em-

He said Imatu would be meeting with employees today (Thursday) to give them feedback on the meeting. The option to strike was very much on the table, he said. “Their anger is justifiable. We need to go back to them with what the city has said and it will be up to them what we do next.” Imatu and Samwu plan to hold mass meetings with their members to discuss a mandate for a strike. The municipality’s spokesman Thabo Mofokeng, said the discussions between the city and the unions should be allowed to take its course. “The technical task team has made progress inundertakingthismassiveandcomplexexercise, which goes back seven years and involves thousandsofemployeeswithnumerousprevious different conditions of service and three different pay systems,” he said. “The technical task team has now presented its report to the city manager and the union leadership, and discussions have commenced at that level regarding a suitable way forward.

LAND for a housing project in the Canelands area in Tongaat has finally been acquired. This according to ward councillor Michael Abraham. According to Abraham, Sunday, 13 April marked a “new beginning for the residents of Canelands”. “They had been living on this land for nearly 40 years. Ever since the closure of the Timberet board company this community settled in the area,
THEY HAD BEEN LIVING ON THIS LAND FOR NEARLY 40 YEARS working in nearby factories and sending their children to the nearest school at Umdhloti Drift,” he said. Abraham said they will house approximately 2 000 residents on the land. Vincent Khanyile, the ANC leader of
Canelands, addressed the community and expressed his gratitude to Abrahamandthemunicipalityforacquiring the land for the “housing needs of our people”. The project will commence later in the year.

EMBERS of Reaction Unit South Africa(RUSA)arrested two housebreaking suspects on Friday, 11 April after responding to a crime in progress in Tongaat. The suspects were arrested inside a home in Azaad Avenue, Belvedere, Tongaat by RUSA area manager Ravi Maharaj after being tipped-off by a grass cutter in the area, RUSA head Prem Balram said. “Thegrasscutter who is an ex-soldier kept observation over the suspects and noticed the two males breaking a door and gaining entry into a home. The informer then ran to a nearby tavern to use a phone. “He informed the RUSA operations centre in Tongaat of the crime in progress and provided a detailed description.” Maharaj responded swiftly to the call out and noticed the forced entry. Balram said that Maharaj called for assistance but the suspects realised he was outside and attempted to flee from a different point in the residence. Balram said Maharaj then gained entry into the home and found both suspects hiding inside. The house was ransacked. Balram said that both suspects were arrested and handed over to the Tongaat police. “The one suspect was an ex convict who was convicted for housebreaking in 2000.” The Tongaat SAPS are investigating.

A new home for elderly woman WEEKLY REPORTER
OR years a leaky shack was all Hilda Hlongwa could call home. That changed on Tuesday when the 71-year-old pensioner was handed the keys to a new brick house in Waterloo, near Verulam. The donation was part of eThekwini Municipality’s Freedom Flame roadshow, to symboliseitsachievementsoverthepast20 years. The house was handed over by Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube, with mayor James Nxumalo, Arts, Culture, Sport and Recreation MEC Ntombikayise SibhidlaSaphetha and other politicians. Hlongwa, who had been living in a shack at the Ocean Drive-In informal settlement, near Tongaat, said she was thrilled. She said she had no idea she would be getting a new home. “My son came to fetch me and didn’t say where we were going and I almost fell over when they presented the house to me,” said the mother of two. “I am very grateful. I have been living in
unbearable conditions for many years and am very lucky to finally have a place I can call my own. “The place where I currently stay is bad. It leaks and when it rains, I don’t sleep because I have to try to cover up things and make sure they remain dry.” There was also no electricity or basic sanitation. “My shack is very small. I use candles and I use a paraffin stove to cook which is not healthy foran old lady. “Butnoweverythinghasbeenmadeeasier.” Addressing a small crowd in Hammonds Farm, Dube-Ncube said that the government was helping to improve living conditions. “We just need you to take care of these houses and pay for services. “And if you are not happy with something, you need to talk to those concerned andrefrainfromburningthingsandclosing down roads,” she said. “Today townships, which were previously neglected by the apartheid government, have access to water, electricity and decent roads.”
An excited Hilda Hlongwa shows the key to her new home with her son.

NERESH GAYAPERSHAD A bit about SO much of our perspective and how we respond to the world around us relates to what we choose to think about. Recently I heard a phrase, the application of which is drastically changing my response to many situations. Over time, as this becomes my habit, it is going to help me with some behaviours I've wanted to change for a long time. The phrase was, "Why not choose fascination rather than frustration?" I used to get frustrated much more often than I do now, because I've learnt that rather than choosing to be frustrated by a situation I can choose to be fascinated instead. I still get frustrated sometimes, but this mental shift made a positive impact on my life. We all get frustrated. Things don't go our way and we get frustrated. Oneoftheearlylessonswelearnaschildren is that things don't always go the way you want. Our life experiences have confirmed this. We don't get the promotion, we don't like the way our boss talks to us, our car is making a funny noise, we can't find a parking space, our children are becoming rebellious, and the list continues to become endless. Our frustrations in life are big and small. In contrast, to be fascinated is to be captivated by something - to be interested. When we are interested in something we notice, we observe things. When we are fascinated by something we are drawn to learn from or about it - quite a different response from frustration and the places it can lead us. It is inevitable in life that things don't always go exactly the way we'd like. Typically people would then say that it is then inevitable that we will be frustrated. Thefrustrationhowever,isnotthesituation itself, but a response or a choice. We have conditioned ourselves to choose frustration. We can also choose to be fascinated in these situations. Choosing frustration can lead to regret, anger, resentment and more. Choosing fascination can lead to understanding, knowledge, and improved results and relationships. The choice is mine. And the choice is yours.

Financial Cents Investment Planning WHAT is Investment planning? Investment planning is the process of identifying and implementing ap propriate investment strategies to create and accumulate the financial resourcesforachievingfinancialgoals. Investment planning seeks to ac complish two equally important goals thatnaturallyconflictwitheachother. The first goal is to maximise returns on investments.Thesecondismostoften to minimise investment risk. Effective investment planning seeks to balance these two goals in all areas of the in vestmentplanningprocesssothatthe investor can achieve the desired out comes. Broadly speaking, every investor seeks to achieve one or a combination of the following objectives: >> Wealth creation >> Wealth protection >> Income generation Because these objects are usually not compatible, an investment planning exercise will often involve trying to reach the best compromise or bal ance. Types of Investments: Unit trusts, endowment policies, shares, collectables (paintings, stamps, etc), gold coins, property, tank containers, Eskom stock and fixed deposits/savings at the bank. One has to ascertain as to what time period one wants to invest for before they decide. Today we will cover Unit Trusts. What are Unit Trusts? Unit trust funds or collective in vestment schemes give investors ac cess to professionally managed bas kets of shares in blue chip companies which are invested in the stock mar ket. This is an open ended investment; ideally one should invest for a period of five years or longer. You can either invest on a monthly basis by debit or der or you could do a once off lump sum payment.
Unit trust funds are an extremely flexible type of investment, allowing you to withdraw money or put in extra when you want to, however if you withdraw when the markets are down youcouldlosepartofyourinvestment. Your choice is extremely wide – cur rently there are nearly 800 funds in South Africa available to individual in vestors,excludingoffshorefundsmar keted here. These cover all asset class es, asset subclasses (for example, re sourcessharesorfinancialshares)and various mixtures of asset classes. However, not all funds are available to someone who wants to invest R500 a month; for many, the monthly mini mum is higher. There are various types of funds, according to the assets the fund in vests in. We consider here just three common broad types of unit trust: lowrisk domestic money market funds, mediumrisk domestic pruden tial funds, and highrisk domestic eq uity funds. Only the money market funds offer yields in line with prevailing interest rates, but they are usually better than most bank deposit rates, although yields can fluctuate daily. The others are subject to the fluctuations of the markets and returns can vary widely. In the unit trust universe, actively managed funds, in which fund man agersmoveinandoutofassetstotake advantage of market conditions, gen erally have higher asset management fees and often also charge perfor mance fees. If you are investing monthly, rather than investing a lump sum, you smooth out your returns (when the unit price drops, your monthly R500 buys you more units). Your savings are discretionary, so that, in the case of the markets taking a dip just before yourfiveyearsareup,youcouldproba bly afford to keep them in a while lon ger to “ride out the storm”. The perfor
mance and returns are not guaran teed, neither is your capital. Please contact your financial adviser/ broker for further infor

Walking for peace at Salt March
WEEK LY KAVEEL SINGH
ORE than 2 000 people participated in the 10th GandhiLuthuli Salt March on Sunday, which snaked its way 17km from Inanda to the King’s Park Athletics Stadium. Amongst the marchers were a number of Tongaat, Verulam and Shakskraal residence. Sixty-five-year old Loga Arumugam of Tongaat said he attended all of the Gandhi events and said the march is growing in leaps and bounds. Tongaat Panthers’ Anthony Naidoo said he also participated in a number of the Gandhi marches and the only problem is that “you have to follow the leaders and you cannot overtake them”. Ela Gandhi the granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi race told the media when interviewed after the march: “It was exciting to see such a good re-

It is pivotal that the message of non-violence should be spread to our future leaders. “Each year the number of people getting involved is growing, and that is encouraging. I am also happy the march took place without any incidents or any problems.” Venilla Govender of Cape Town, a former resident of Tongaat, said she participated for the first time in a
march of this nature. “The march was unique because you are obliged to follow the leaders and it is totally different from an athletic walk or a competitive race.” David Doorsamy of Trenance Park, Verulam said he walked the distance for the first time. “It was very exciting. My legs are a bit sore. “I will take part in the shorter version of the walk next time.”
Thousands attended this years Salt March.

Insight Vision taking vision to clearer heights ADVERTORIAL INSIGHT Vision is offering a free DVD player with any lens enhancement purchased. This special offer is valid until 21 May 2014. Lens enhancements vastly improve the quality and the usage of your spectacles, for example, a hard coating, an anti-reflective coating, or a transition tint.
A transition tint reacts to UV light. It goes dark when you are outdoors, and clear when you are indoors. It helps to protect your eyes from the harmful effects of UV rays. The anti-reflective coating is a clear coating, that helps reduce glare and reflections of light. It would assist to reduce the glare from oncoming traffic lights when driving at night, as well as glare from the computer or TV screen.
Byaddingtheanti-reflectivecoatingon your spectacle lenses, it would help reduce eye-strain significantly. HARD COATING: Helps reduce scratches on the spectacle lenses. For great quality spectacles and caring service, please come visit us. To book your appointment, or for any further information, please contact us on 0325336193 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
CERTAIN kinds of fibroblasts, the cells that form basic tissue struc tures, play a major role in scar formation, fat accumulation and in flammation, says new research. This is according to a University of Rochester Medical Center study in the October issue of the American Journal of Pathology. New light shed on the role of fibroblasts The finding offers new information about the role of fibroblasts, all of which were previously assumed to be little more than scaffold ing on which more important cells would climb. This new informa tion may help explain why some people suffer from unexplained internal scarring around their vital organs, which can result in serious diseases of the eyes, heart, lungs, intestines or kidneys. The study may also help doctors better under stand why some accident victims and surgical pa tients scar easily and take longer to heal than others. The findings could lead the way to new drugs that stop unhealthy scars or fatty tissue from developing. A useful diagnostic tool? This is the first clear demonstration that certain kinds of human fibroblasts can develop into scar type or fattype cells, lead author Richard Phipps, professor of environmental medicine, microbiology and immunology, oncology and paediatrics, says in a prepared statement. In fact, results show that some fibroblasts may provetobeausefuldiagnostictoolbyprovidingclues
to the severity of a disease or who might be prone to abnormal wound healing. Active after injury or trauma Normally inconspicuous in healthy tissue, myofibroblasts be come active after an injury or trauma. When they're uncontrolled, myofibroblasts result in fibrosis of the liver, kidneys, lungs and heart. Lipofibroblasts develop into fat cells and lead to thyroid eye disease and harmful accumulation of fatty tissue in the liver, spleen and bone marrow. In this study, Phipps and his team discovered surface markersthatidentifywhichfibroblastshavethepotentialtochange intomyofibroblastsorlipofibroblasts.Theynowplantomoreclosely investigate the pathways for this cell transformation.

Let me start by explaining the deﬁnition of a Calorie. What is a calorie? A calorie is the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water 1 degree Celsius, in another words a calorie is a measure of heat energy. When food is burned, it releases a certain amount of heat (energy), depending on the type of food, for example; Fat has more calories (9 calories per gram) than Carbohydrates (4 calories per gram) and Protein (4 calories per gram). The more calories that are in the food, the more energy will be released when it is burned and whatever surplus energy that is not used by the body will get stored as adipose tissue (body fat). All foods that have a high fat content will be considered high calorie foods. There are some fats that are good and essential for the body (Unsaturated Fats) which need to be consumed in the right quantities like your omega 3 and omega 6, also known as your healthy fats. Although fats are high calorie foods and should be limited, there are also some lower calorie foods which are just as, if not more destructive to one’s health. What foods am I talking about? I am talking about the processed carbohydrates that are so readily available today, like your sugary foods. Any food that is not in its most natural form is considered harmful when over consumed, even though it has lower calorie content than your fatty foods. These foods cause a huge glucose (blood sugar) spike in the blood stream and continuous glucose spikes could lead to diabetes. These large spikes also means surplus glucose and whatever glucose is not used for energy will be stored has body fat (adipose tissue). Most people do not worry about calories until they decide to go on a diet or weight loss program and even then they don’t know what a calorie really is or how much to consume. The ﬁrst place to start for anybody who is looking at losing weight, gaining weight or even maintaining weight, is to ﬁrst ﬁnd out how many calories per day they require for maintenance and then adjust their calorie consumption accordingly. Estimating your calorie consumption by the food you eat on a daily basis and then dropping your calories by eating less for weight loss does not have a very positive effect. If you cut your calories by too much which you will eventually do because every time you hit a plateau, you lower your calories even further to see results and that will send your body into starvation mode which will lower metabolism and a lower metabolism will make it much easier for you to put the weight that you lost back on and even more. Therefore it is important to count calories when going on a weight loss program. This way you can monitor your weight loss and make small adjustments accordingly without lowering you metabolism and jeopardizing your health.

KAVEEL SINGH THE April holidays were full of activity for PROTEC pupils who participated in a variety of workshops. “In today’s technological world computer literacy is essential and our aim is to ensure that every learner on our programme is equipped with these vital skills,” said Marion Takis, PROTEC Tongaat manager. Grade 10 pupils, who all joined PROTEC this year, attended a beginners computer workshop where they learnt to use a number of computer programmes including Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point and the Internet. For many of these pupils it was the first time they had touched a computer. The grade 11 pupils participated in a bridge building workshop. “The aim of PROTEC is to prepare young people, with the interest and ability, for successful entry into engineering, science and technological careersandthebridgebuildingworkshop gave the pupils the opportunity to test their skills and aptitude in engineering concepts,” said Takis.
Using 25 strips of balsa wood and Pratley Quickset, pupils had to design and build a bridge that could carry a heavyload.Thewinningteamcarried a load of 25kg closely followed by the runner’s up who managed 22kg. Both

Ungibuze ukuthi ngiyokwenzani, ngathula ngangamphendula ngoba ngimazi kahle unkabimalanga uma ezongichukuluza. Unele wabona ukuthi ngiyamziba, wazamulela phansi, washaya sengathi uzikhulumela yedwa wathi: “Wenza kahle mntakaVezi ungizibe ngoba vele awazi uzongiphendula uthini.” Umngane wami-ke uyilenhlobo engazibeki. Kuthe kusenjalo kwafika omunye umngani wethu esakhula naye, waphuma eceleni njengojosaka wayofundela ubufundisi. Esikoleni wayekhaliphe ngendlela eyisimanga umngane wethu lo, eziphuzela kwimathematics kangangoba othisha babemkhuthaza ukuthi afundele ubudokotela, kodwa waqeda enyuvesi waqonda eFederal Theological Seminary (Fedsem) eMgungundlovu wayofundela ubufundisi.

Comrade’s substitutions open WEEKLY REPORTER COMRADES Marathon runners who were unable to enter the 2014 race during the official entry period from 1 September to 30 November 2013, now have an opportunity to still be part of the world’s biggest and oldest ultra-marathon through the official 2014 substitution pro-
cess in April. The Comrades Marathon Association’s (CMA) substitution rule allows for a runner who has not entered to substitute an entrant who has withdrawn, or intends to withdraw from the 2014 edition of the race. The Comrades Marathon Substitution Rule was introduced for the
April 18, 2014
first time in 2012 and now forms part of the CMA’s official race rules. The substitution process officially opened on 1 April and closes on 30 April. The completed application forms as specified in the substitution rule must reach the CMA office by 30 April and there will be no extension
of this deadline. Athletes still intending to submit substitution application forms are advised to visit the official Comrades Marathon website at www.comrades.com for the downloadable forms and the comprehensive list of rules and regulations which govern the process. Race director, Rowyn James,
said: “The substitution rule has been well received by our runners over the past two years and will ensure that there are a higher number of starters outside the Pietermaritzburg City Hall on 1 June.”
MOUNT EDGECOMBE Reunion to embrace past
>> This event will kick start the birth of a new sporting giant WEEKLY REPORTER
REUNION of Mount Edgecombe residents, inclusive of the sugar estates and Mount Edgecombe Secondary School is been organised by Mount Edgecombe Sporting Club and Young Sprinboks Football Club on Saturday, 12 April at 2pm at the Shri Mariammen Temple grounds. This event will kick start the birth of a new sporting giant, Mount Edgecombe Springboks FC, which is a merger of the two clubs. The reunion of the people of Mount Edgecombe will celebrate this historic event. Mount Edgecombe was originally a sugar estate named after the 7th Earl of Edgecombe by Captain William Smeardon. Smeardon was instrumentalinbuilding MountEdgecombein 1860. Indentured labourers from all parts of India were employed in the sugar cane fields and later in the sugar mill itself. At the end of 1876 the sugar mill was acquired by a Mauritian named Langlois. In 1878 the mill was taken over by Natal Sugar Limited and in 1895, Natal Estates Ltd. The last owner was the Tongaat Hulllet Group until 1994, when the sugar mill closed.

KERASAN GOVENDER (PORKY) 07.04.1984 to 17.02.2003 I wish you were here today even for just a little while so I could say Happy Birthday “son” and see your beautiful smile.
God saw her getting tired, a cure was not to be. He wrapped his loving arms & whispered “come with me”. She suffered much in silence, her spirit did not blend. She faced her pain with courage, until the very end. She tried so hard to stay with us but her ﬁght was not in vain, God took her to His loving home & freed her from the pain...
The only gifts today will be the gifts you left behind; The laughter, joy and happiness... precious memories...the best kind.
Date: Sunday 20th April 2014 Time: 19:00pm – 20:00pm Venue: Flat SD, Door 2, Flamingo Heights. Supper will be served from 17:30pm
I’ll sit quietly and look at your picture thinking of you with love; hoping you’re doing ok in Heaven up above.
Your presence will be highly appreciated. Sadly missed by her family & friends.
Today I’ll do my very best to try and find a happy place... struggling to hide my heavy heart and the tears on my face.
May the angels hold you close and sing you a happy song... and I’ll be sending wishes to you today and all year long.

THE uMhlanga Easter Trail Run takes place on Easter Sunday, 20 April with three distances to choose from the 16km, 10km and the 5km. Three routes will have you meandering through bush, beach and cane fields. Gravel roads, single tracks, river and lagoon crossings along with a stretch of beach will certainly challenge all participants. According to the race director Buzz Bolton the 16km run that will have you wading through two rivercrossingsandabridgecrossing. If 16km is too daunting, then one can sign up for the 10km run or walk or the other option is to take part in the pleasant 5km run or walk that involves negotiating a spectacular forest. There is one start at 6am for the three distances, with the start at the Millennium Stage on the uMhlanga Promenade. Registration can be done from 5am near the start or with ROAG on their website. Bolton said the run should be fantastic for everyone that gets involved.“We have brought in the shorter distance in the hope of ap-
pealing to entry level trail runners and fit families that enjoy the outdoors as a family. The 10km trail will be non-technical and fast. This will offer comfort to any Comrades runners who fear twisting an ankle. “The longer route will take runners over the spectacular N2 footbridge and through a refreshing bush section,” Bolton said. Peter Rose, the chairman of uMhlanga Tourism enthused, “Thisracejustkeepsgettingbetter and better. Hundreds of runners converge on our town to discover the interesting surrounds that we have. It seems that every single race we keep having a record number of entrants and I certainly hopewedosoforthisraceaswell.” There is an entry fee for all distances and the winners for each category will win a prize. Entry is through ROAG on www.roag.co.za or manual registration on the morning from 5am. For more info, visit www.umhlangafestival.co.za The entry fee for the respective races are as follows: 16km R120 Late entry R130 10km R100 Late entry R110 5km R50 late entry R60.
Kallis ousted by young gun? berth. Lynn is a 24-year-old Queenslander who did well for Brisbane Heat in last season’s Big Bash and earned his first two T20 international caps for the Aussies against the touring England side – although his CV is infinitely lighter than that of much-travelled Test icon Kallis. Wisden India (www.wisdenindia.com) has done an exercise suggesting which overseas players are likely to be preferred in ideal “first XIs” among the eight IPL franchises. “Kolkata’s batting appears thin and lacking in firepower, but with Narine and Morkel in the (bowling) mix, it will be difficult to rely only on overseas batsman ... (they might)takethedebatablecallofincluding the raw Lynn over legendary Kallis.” Whether that happens too quickly remains to be seen, given top-order stalwart Kallis’s additional value as a seamer and the excellence of his catching, even if his mobility in the field may be waning a little with advancing age.

THE limit on overseas players could restrict Jacques Kallis to the sidelines occasionally, according to Asian media reports as the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League gets underway in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. Champions Mumbai Indians tackle Kallis’s Kolkata Knight Riders outfit in the tournament opener (16:30 SA time). The teams may only field a maximum of four of their overseas stars, and it seems the Knight Riders, at least initially, will definitely want to play Bangladeshi allrounder Shakib Al Hasan, plus West Indian spin maestro Sunil Narine and Kallis’s compatriot Morne Morkel in the bowling department. That would leave a toss-up between the 38-year-old, versatile Kallis, who has slashed his overall cricketingworkloadbutstillwants to feature in South Africa’s 50oversplanstothe2015WorldCup, and emerging Australian batsman Chris Lynn for the extra
