Falling glass panes cut Gateway shoppers

“W

e didn’t know what was happening. I just felt a heavy blow on my back and I actually thought a chandelier had fallen on me and I was burning because of that,” said Leela Maharaj. She said all she felt was an intense heat all over her head and then some liquid running down her body. “It was only after I saw that the liquid was blood and saw glass on the floor that I realised what had happened. I immediately started looking for my children,” said Maharaj, a school teacher. Fearing the worst when she saw her 22-year-old daughter Tasha, bleeding profusely from her head, Maharaj said she forgot all about her injuries. “I could not believe what was happening … all around me I could see my children and relatives all injured and bleeding in some way. Looking at my daughter with blood pouring from her head, I was hysterical,” said Maharaj. Tasha, who was hit on the back of her neck, forehead and centre of her head by glass, lost a tremendous amount of blood at the shopping mall. She has since received nine stitches each to the open wound on her forehead and centre of her head. She, too, complained about feeling an intense heat when first hit with the glass. “I just felt this thud on my head that was extremely painful … I felt like I was going to fall and was quite dizzy. A few seconds before that I heard people screaming but before I could ascertain what was going on, this glass came down on us,” said Tasha. Maharaj said they were still trying to get rid of the hundreds of pieces of glass embedded in their skin, clothing and hair. “We still feel there is glass in ournosesandinourears.Wehave been to our private doctor and we continue to receive medical treat-

Others injured in the incident were Maharaj’s son Rivaash, an engineer, his fiancée Ratna Maharaj, and her sister Tharinadevi Sharma. They all suffered severe lacerations over their bodies and were treated at the Umhlanga Hospital. The family’s attorney Surendra Singh said the family reserved their legal rights against the shopping mall and were in the process of drawing up a claim.

WEEKLY

>> Mr Price Pro remains in Ballito while eThekwini Municipality continues to fight for the festival

SHANNON HOPKINS

T

HE Mr Price Pro will still take place in Ballito this year, despite eThewini Municipality’s desire to reclaim the event. KwaDukuza mayor Ricardo Mthembu announced this at a partner’s breakfast at the Boathouse in Ballito last Friday. He said negotiations with stakeholders are still going on, but the event will remain in Ballito for the foreseeable future. eThekwini wants the festival to take place in the city once again and started their fight last year. The event was hosted at Durban’s North beach prior to 2009. The change of venue came after a ‘fall-out’ between former chief executive of Durban Africa, Lindiwe Mahlangu and the then Mr Price chairman Alastair McArthur. Health concerns over water quality was also an issue. The success of the event in Ballito seems to have sparked Durban’s interest to take it back - by 2015. KwaDukuza Municipality spokesman Sifiso Zulu said they were planning for the future. “We are discussing the prospects of the Mr Price Pro being staged in KwaDukuza for a further three years. This is not yet concluded. It is advis-

Last year saw the kick-off of the popular ‘Coastal Living Bru’ food and wine show, which will be on again in full force this year, says Bundy. There will be ‘Master Chef’ type events for children and adults. The two evenings of free concerts will also be on again at Salt Rock beach. Bundy added that the festival raked in about R28 million in 2013, and that there are high expectations to grow the tourism aspect this year.

Daniel said the festival was rated the biggest festival in the country with the largest numbers attending and biggest overall reach - attracting 100 000 visitors last year. He said it had made it into the top seven in South African Tourism, alongside big events such as the Dusi Canoe Marathon, Comrades Marathon and Midmar Mile.

RUSA arrest ‘Christmas’ robbers WEEKLY REPORTER

A

VERULAM family who was beaten and covered with a blanket during a robbery on Christmas day last year faced the daunting task of trying to identify the perpetrators this week. Local security company Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) arrested three men in Russom Street on Sunday in connection with the robbery. The family had to attend an identification parade at the Verulam police station yesterday (19 March). Victim Jude Govender and his family was at his aunt’s home in Temple Valley when three men with guns stormed the house. Two of them pushed the family around and slapped Govender, demanding jewellery and cash. The other ransacked the house. He said they used cords from a speaker to tie up their hands and then bundled them together and pushed them into one of the rooms. The suspects placed a blanket over their heads and locked them in

the room. Clothes, appliances and jewellery as well as Govender’s VW Velociti were taken. KZN police spokesman Captain Thulani Zwane confirmed the incident. Govender’s car was recovered in Ndwedwe an hour later. Govender said it was alleged that one of the suspects had been seen wearing his shoes and another had been wearing his cousin’s track pants. The third suspect was alleged to have been wearing his cousin’s wedding ring RUSA head Prem Balram said they had made the arrests after a tip-off. The men allegedly ran in different directions when they saw the guards, who ran after them. Balram said all three suspects were from uMlazi, and he believed they were in Verulam to plan another robbery. Balram confirmed that the three wanted suspects were arrested by

his officers. He said the suspects were spotted on Todd Street Verulam after one of the victims saw the three men wearing clothing, watches and shoes that were taken on Christmas night. According to Balram, reaction officers then proceeded to the area to observe the suspects, but upon noticing the RUSA members, all three suspects fled on foot. “A chase ensued and all three suspects were apprehended. All three were found to be in possession of goods stolen on the night of the incident.” Balram added that the victim’s gold watch was found on the wrist of one suspect. “At this stage the suspects have not been linked to any other cases pending investigation.” The suspects will appear in court this week.

Life insurance THERE are six steps in financial planning. This week I will cover the first step: Life Insurance This type of policy is more important if you are married and/or have children. Your life is valuable because it is what allows you to work and earn an income to provide for your family. When you are gone you create an income gap which could put your spouse or children in financial trouble. Death is hard enough, don't make it even hard­ er by putting your loved ones in a financial jam if

FINANCIAL CENTS BY JUGGIE GOVENDER the unfortunate does happen. Funerals alone can be expensive and it creates even more stress on the family. You should have enough to cover basic funeral expenses and provide a cushion for your family, which is an stream of income that replaces what is gone. If you do not currently have life in­ surance, your best bet is to check with your em­ ployer first. Many employers offer a basic life in­ surance as a benefit and some even allow you to purchase additional coverage at a very affordable rate. However you should not depend on your em­ ployer's group life benefit as you may not be able to con­ vert this if you change jobs. Outside of employer plans there are many insur­ ance companies that can provide the right coverage for you. It is recommended that you deal with compa­ nies that are estab­ lished and has a good

track record. It is also important to deal with a fi­ nancial adviser or broker who you can trust and comes well referred. You can also purchase poli­ cies directly from some insurance companies tele­ phonically, this is not the best option as all the in­ formation may not be covered and therefore you may end up with a claim not being met at claim stage. Type Of Policy Is it health insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, property and casualty insurance, or car insurance? If you are reviewing or summarizing a life insur­ ance policy, specify what type of life insurance pol­ icy it is: term life, whole life or universal life. Insurance Company Who is the insurance company that provides the insurance? Keep track of a customer service num­ ber you can call, or the contact information for your insurance agent/ broker. Policy Number You will always need your policy number and iden­

tity number when you call and ask questions about an insurance policy. Date Issued It is important to know the date the insurance was issued especially when it comes to life insurance, as term insurance has an expiration date, and per­ manent insurance will have a surrender charge that may apply if you cancel the policy in the first five to twenty years. Premium Required Always keep track of the premium you pay and how frequently it is paid. In the case of a whole life insurance policy, the policy could be paid up. The new generation life policies have review dates, this can be five, 10 or 15 year terms. Premium Patterns There are different options of premium patterns i.e. level, age­profiled, aggressive age­profiled and compulsory premium increase. With age­profiled the premiums are cheaper at inception, as you get older the premium increas­ es and therefore may not be affordable at a later stage. Cheapest is not always the best. Your ad­ viser or broker will be in a position to explain ful­ ly. Who do the benefits apply to; you, your spouse, a dependent child? Once you understand the basic components, you can review the details of the insurance policy. Summary Of Benefits - You Must Look At This In Detail When You Review An Insurance Policy Much of the information you need can be found in your policy under a section called "Summary Of Benefits" or "Policy Data", but I think it is best to conduct an insurance review by calling your agent or broker and have them talk you through each feature of your policy, explaining when it would apply, how you would qualify, and how much you pay for it. Below is a brief overview of what you would want to review for each type of insurance you may have:

Mid Week Special: Hire a movie on a Wednesday and you only return on Saturday

Weekend Special: Hire a movie on Saturday and you only return on Monday TV Series Special: Hire any TV series and only

return it 1 week later

Family time just got better

“The average Family spends over R500 for just one single movie outing”

Life Insurance Policy Review And Summary For life insurance keep track of the total death benefit, and any additional riders such as a waiver of premium in the event of disability. In addition, if your policy has a cash value, track the performance of investments inside it, and call the adviser/ broker or insurance compa­ ny to request something called an "in­force illus­ tration/ fund value".

DESIREE ERASMUS

I

N Germany between October 1939 and August 1941, Adolf Hitler sanc­ tioned the Action T4/Euthanasia Programme. Criterion for euthanasia was simple: ‘life unworthy of life’. The ‘mentally ill’ and ���incurably ill’ fell into this category. A child euthana­ sia programme was established in or­ der to eradicate ‘spreading’ of defi­ cient genes and later shifted to adults not deemed worthy of life. At this time in Nazi Germany you would be eligible for euthanasia if you had an abnormally small head, a swollen head or deformed limbs. Paralysis and Down Syndrome also

I am not worthy … or you, or you made one unworthy of life, as did epi­ lepsy, schizophrenia and encephalitis. Eventually children eligible for eutha­ nasia came to include ‘those designat­ ed as juvenile delinquents’. The Nazi propaganda machine premiered films and distributed litera­ ture to inform the public of conditions at asylums and how much money was being wasted in keeping alive those that were unable to contribute anything meaningful ­ by Nazi stand­ ards ­ to society. As WWII swung into action, corners had to be cut, and ‘mercy killing’ would save the state money. During this time it is estimated that close on 300 000 people were killed using‘the best availablehuman judge­ ment [to perform a] mercy death’. His­ torians who have studied the T4 pro­ gramme tell us that the ‘mercy deaths’ were ‘nearly always carried out with­ out the consent of the people con­ cerned or their families’. But this is Adolf Hitler we are talkingabout;inanerawheneducation and propaganda were the same thing. So what is a human being worth over 70 years later?

According to research undertaken by the U.S. department of soils and ag­ riculture or some such body a few years ago, if the chemical and mineral com­ ponents of the human body were add­ ed up, we would be worth about R1000. This doesn’t include organs, where, if you are having a particularly tight month, you can rake in a tidy R6000+ for your spleen, according to black market prices. But then we get to ‘statistical life’ value. Simply put, this is the amount the taxpayer should (theoretically) be willing to pay to stop the death of one human being. Reports released by the Obama administration in 2011 indicated that the value of statistical life was $6.1 million. Since statistical life value is used as a benchmark for deciding on regu­ lation, if your life doesn’t hold as much statistical value as the lives of others, corners can be cut. Thus things such as pollution and crime are not as tightly regulated in areas where human life has a lower sta­ tistical value. Determining the value of human

life is tricky. Your mom probably thinks you are worth the lives of 10 people. Your boss probably doesn’t. Your government may think your life is more worthwhile if you are an active contributor to economic and so­ cial growth ­ in the form of taxes ­ so might your neighbours. But the value of human life also fluctuates with social pressure, legisla­ tion and culture, as seen in the often highly emotive debates over abortion. I have always found it ironic that on the same wing of a hospital doc­ tors will fight to save the life of a 20­week­old premature ‘baby’ but in another room a 20­week­old ‘foetus’ willbeaborted. Who decidestheworth of the baby or the foetus? And why is it that abortion appears to be target­ ed at the poor and non­whites? So, do we gainworthfromourrace? Are we more worthy if we are middle­ class? Are we more worthy if we have two children instead of five? Do riches or a degree make us wise or equip us to impart wisdom and worth? Who decides this? And more importantly, why do we let them?

Human ridiculousness and yardsticks of good character HUMAN beings are ridiculous creatures. We are vain, indecisive and possess an over-inflated opinion of our own importance. The beach front is a good place to go when you want to see ridiculousness at its best. People use this space to exercise in many different ways, including cycling, walking, rollerblading,andmovingonstrangethingsthatlooklike orbitreks on wheels. Then there are those who either do not understand the principle of exercise, or simply don’t care. These are the people you see coasting along on electric bicycles, standing on skateboards and being pulled along by their dogs, or simply lounging on the sand getting skin cancer. As any fitting-room attendant at a clothing store will tell you, people have grossly skewed impressions of their bodies. After watching a size 16 woman attempt to squeeze into a size 12 pair of jeans for the 20th time in one shift, it amazes me that people keep their cool. A couple of months ago I went to a nightclub and overheard the following conversation in the bathroom: Girl 1: I can’t believe I’m, like, turning 19 tomorrow. That’s like so old! Girl 2: I turned 19 last month. I can’t believe I still don’t have a boyfriend. Girl 1 and Girl 2: hysterical giggling This exchange, out of the mouth of babes, leaves me with little hope for the future. Add to this the existence of the word “aweh”, and we are thoroughly screwed. When it comes to judging people’s character, there are a few basic tests that I like to use. The first is to gauge a friend’s reaction when stuck behind a truck or taxi driving at 30km/h. If they manage to get to the next overtake zone in under 10 expletives, you have found a keeper. Another yardstick by which I like to judge people on is whether they bother to greet cashiers and attendants at toll booths. Even a car guard who wants a tip after “watching” your car for five minutes deserves a greeting. We’re all suffering as a result of the petrol price, but being polite costs nothing. Possession of a sense of humour is key, not only to being a nice person, but to surviving in a world full of not-so-nice people. People without the ability to laugh at themselves and the world around them end up hijacking aircraft, shooting children at their alma mater or having their wife murdered on their wedding night and then not having the balls to voluntarily come back to the country of the crime to stand trial. In summary, if you use the word “like” more than once every 30 seconds, grow up. If you’re on the beach, use sunblock and don’t make your dog do your workout. If you don’t have a sense of humour, grow one quickly, and if you’re not nice to toll-booth attendants, I hope I never meet you.

Arthritis and children >> Help your child and family cope with Juvenile Arthritis

W

HATEVER he physical complica­ tions of juvenile arthritis (JA), the psychological issues are more likely to affect the lives of you and your family. Here’s how to cope with a childwhohasJAwhilekeepingyourfamily together. Even with a completely healthy family it’snevereasytobalanceyourlife:keeping therelationshipwithyourpartneralive,as wellasprovidinglove,stimulationandse­ curity for your children. So when one child needs special care, the strain on keeping that balance is in­ creased exponentially. The child with JA may feel angry about being the one with the illness. “Mummy and Daddy can fix anything. Why can’t they make this pain go away?” “Why did I get it and not one of the other children, or one of the children in my class?” These are natural human reactions not restricted to childhood. Your child might pass through various stages of grieving including denial, anger, bargain­ ing, depression and acceptance. Psychol­ ogistElizabethKübler­Rossdefinedthese stagesofgrief,whichapplynotonlytolos­ ing a loved one, but also to any major shock, such as discovering that you have a disease. You’ll find more useful information in the book Life Lessons: Two Experts on Death and Dying Teach Us about the Mys­ teries of Life and Living by David Kessler and Elisabeth Kübler­Ross (publisher: TouchstoneBooks),availableatwww.ka­ lahari.net. You’re likely to go through the same stages of grieving as your child, although they’ll obviously manifest differently. Venting your anger on the members of your family won’t help the process at all. Recognise that your partner might al­ so feel guilty about passing on a defective gene to your child. Acknowledge that these emotions are common to all those who are in your position and accept that you didn’t “cause” the illness. Self­pityisaluxuryreservedforpeople with no dependents or loved ones. Your task is to monitor the pulse of the family: watch for resentment between the child that has JA and those that don’t. At the other end of the scale, the child or children not affected by juvenile arthri­ tis might feel a need to overcompensate and be overprotective toward the sibling with JA. Watch for signs that the “well” child is neglecting his or her own needs

Juvenile arthritis in children. and normal activities to care for the “ill” one. As far as possible, encourage your chil­ dren to sort out their disputes among themselves and to discuss their feelings. Makeitclearthatyouexpectyourchild withJAtobehaveaswellastheotherchil­ dren and that the illness isn’t a licence for abrogating his or her responsibilities. Chil­ dren with JA might be unable to mow the lawn, but they can do other chores such as tidying up or folding laundry. This may seem draconian, but it actu­ ally helps to keep the peace in the home, because you’ll avoid resentment and guilt among the children. Encourage the child with JA – and the others, if they show an interest – to learn about the disease and its treatment pro­ gramme. As he or she grows older they can be encouraged to assume responsibility for taking medication on time, following an exercise programme and being aware of side­effects. In this way you’ll have the child make the transition to self­reliance in adulthood. It’s a fine balance between showering your child with love and care, and encour­ aging them to be self­sufficient. The child may try – perhaps subconsciously – to manipulate you into allowing “off­limits” activities or to be relieved of household

chores. Being consistent will help smooth the way over these incidents. Make it clear that the child comes first when he or she is ill, but that the family has to function as a unit and that each member has an obligation to ensure that this happens. When your child first becomes ill, you may set aside relationships with other family members. It is important, however, to continue to talk and spend time with others. Plan special time to spend alone withyourspouse,orwiththeentirefamily. Make allowances for the child’s “off­ days” when he or she is too ill or stiff to take part in an activity. This can be an emotional minefield if the family has planned a visit to the zoo and the child with JA feels unwell. The family will have to make adjustments to these uncertainties and make contingen­ cy plans accordingly. In some cases simply waiting a few hours will be enough. The first step is to teach the family to accept that these uncertainties are part of life. Encourage ideas on activities for active days and quiet days. You could con­ sider having a child minder or relative look after the child with JA, or to postpone the excursion until another day. Either deci­ sion might lead to floods of tears about being “left out,” so play it by ear. Start early

By the age of three, a child with JA might begintorealisethatheorsheis“different” and this will inevitably affect his or her self­image and view of the world. Not be­ ing able to play as vigorously as other chil­ dren might still leave ways to play with other children. Children can be cruel, so you’ll have to make some effort to reinforce a positive self­image by finding ways in which the child with JA can be helpful. Continually include your child as a valued and needed member of the family. When delegating chores you can allo­ cate the child with JA ones that can be done easily, such as feeding pets, folding laundry, tidying up and so on. Give credit for all achievements, without fawning over the child. A sibling who offers to help might mean well, but leaving the child with JA to accomplish something independently will reinforce his or her sense of self­ worth. It might be difficult to not inter­ vene when the child struggles, but if there’s any chance of him or her succeed­ ing at a task, offer encouragement, but not help. The sense of accomplishment will outweigh the struggles. During these timesdon’tputtoomuchemphasisonthe child’s minor aches and pains, although the obvious discomfort and pain can’t be ignored.

Giants from Buffelsdale on track WEEKLY REPORTER NEWLY-FORMED Buffelsdale Giants in the Artro Turf League is earning a name after beating Secona 10-3 at the East Coast Sporting Complex in only their second league game. This was a welcomed victory for some players who haven't kicked a ball. Buffelsdale Giants got into their rhythm early in the game and opened the scoring with an excellent goal by their seasoned player Stuart Clark whose objective is to groom the team and “turn them into a force to be reckoned with”. Secona is an excellent team and showed tremendous skill with some brilliant inter-passing, but they were cautioned by the well marshalled defence of the Giants and had very few shots at goals In the second half the complexion of the game changed drastically as the Giants dominated. Theywerescoringgoalsatregularintervals. The opportunities came due to the team work from Clark and Thyson for absorbing the pressure and feeding the ball calmly to the men up

front giving them a number of opportunities at goals. Secona’s young keeper must also be commended for his skills and outstanding performance. In the over 40s match played on Friday night, Towers emerged winners after beating Belvedere United 7-2. Towers took an early lead in the first half with a 4-0 lead. Belvedere United had myriad of chances and if they converted their opportunities, it would definitely being an exciting game.
