BILLY NAIR

Happy Raksha Bandhan

Circuit launched >> MEC praises top performing circuit KAVEEL SINGH

P

RAISE was heaped on struggle icon Billy Nair from all sectors of education and business last Thursday during the official launch of the Billy Nair Circuit. The circuit, comprising Tongaat and Verulam education sectors was renamed after Nair, who lived in Tongaat for most of his life and focussed largely on the promotion of education. Welcoming a barrage of highprofiled guests, including the likes of EdisonPowerCEOVivianReddyand

KZN MEC for education, Senzo Mchunu,circuitmanagerSelvanChetty reminded teachers that ‘we stand tall because we are on the shoulders of giants’. “When we decided to embark on the naming of this circuit, we realised we’re an entity without an identity. Billy was the obvious choice for his dedication to education and his inextricable link to this education community in eThekwini north. “He was also a great inspiration to all of us and we believe he should be immortalised in this way. His leg-

acymustcontinuetogrowitsalready noteworthy reputation.” Member of the parliamentary legislature and close personal friend of the Nair family, Maggie Govender, saidNairwasstillmakingsignificant contributions to education through the Billy and Elsie Nair Trust. “It takes a special kind of person to be that selfless. This was nothing new from Billy. Even in his struggle years, he was fully committed to the fight for liberation and never backed down despite his imprisonment and lack of financial resources.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

uest speaker Justice Zac Yacoob said the circuit ‘has performed a great feat’ by acknowledging a great man. Yacoob said that the forming of the Constitution and Bill of Rights was something all should work toward. “Billy would have wanted us all to strive toward these documents. They were frameworks that were designed to ensure we live in a peaceful and fair society.” MEC for education Senzo Mchunu praised the Tongaat and Verulam circuit for their work. “Not only is this an excellent

commitment to comrade Billy, but this is one of the top performing circuits in the entire province. “The schools are always averaging results in the 80 to 90 percent bracket. This is a sign of good leadership. “It is no wonder greats like Billy Nair emerged from this area.” During the input session from business that contributed to the event, the Calypso Group CEO Sadha Naidoo surprised the full hall by committing R100 000 to be used in the next year for education upliftment projects.

A VERULAM man was sentenced to 22 years’ imprisonment for stab­ bing his mother to death after she scolded him for drinking and reneged on a promise to give him money. Acting Judge En­ thias Xolo convicted Thandaxolo Khuma­ loof the murder and he was sentenced at the Pietermaritzburg High Court last Friday. Khumalo (27) said he was angry with his mother, went to the kitchen and fetched a knife that he used to stab her several times in July. He left his fatally­ injured mother, Thokozile (70), on the floor of her home and fled when he rea­ lised what he had done. The court heard how he tried to destroy evidence by burning his bloodied clothes. Khumalo said he acted out of anger. According to the post­mortem, the mother was stabbed in both lungs, liver, face, and upper arm. Her face was also bruised.

The Desinagar cemetery has reached capacity

>> No burial facilities in Verulam and Tongaat KAVEEL SINGH

T

HE Tongaat Regional Cemetery in Desinagar, one of only two graveyards in Tongaat, has reached capacity. Only families with grave site leases will be granted exclusive rights, said eThekwini Municipality’s Parks, Recreation and Culture Unit on Friday. According to eThekwini Municipality’s spokesperson Thabo Mofokeng, only families with a lease will be permitted to re-use the graves for burials. “All other graves that are 10 years and older without leases, records or tombstones will be available for re-use as is the practice in all eThekwini Municipal Cemeteries. “Families are advised that should they wish to retain the rights to re-use or reserve a grave from future use, they are to contact the office of the district manager of the Parks Leisure and Cemeteries - Cemeteries and Crematoria Section, in order to apply for a 10 year lease of the grave.” Mofokeng said that those who do not intend to lease the grave where a family member has been buried and object to it being reused, should raise objections in writing by no later than Monday 30 September 2013. “Reference must be made to the relationshiptothedeceased,thenameofthedeceased, block and grave number and proof of identification.” Local DA councillor Brian Jayanathan said he was surprised that the issue was not made more public by the council. He said the closure would place a greater burden on the affected residents. “I would like to know what plans eThekwini has made or is making to find burial sites in Tongaat that will give some peace to the bereaved. “Where are the new grave sites that have been identified for burial for Tongaat and surrounding areas? “This is information that we all need as soon as possible. “Officials cannot drag their feet on this matter.

shocked when I visited this cemetery to find that the graves were opened. I was shocked to see pieces of a skull. During the excavation a skull was damaged. This is horrific,” he said.

Findings criticised by DA >> Ruling party says issues have been resolved

T

HE Democratic Alliance (DA) in eThekwini said the Auditor General’s (AG) report into the 2011/2012 financial year once again paints a bleak picture for the eThekwini Municipality. This comes after the report revealed over R40 million worth of business was conducted between the municipality, councillors and officials during the accounted financial year. Of this total amount, R7.5 million went to councillors alone.

The AG found that this occurred due to insufficient steps taken by the council to tighten up its Supply Chain Management (SCM) policy. According to the report, eThekwini had worsened in comparison to the previous financial year. In a statement, DA caucus leader Dean Macphereson said that as long as councillors receive a slap on the wrist for doing business with the municipality, they will not be deterred. “Fines will simply factor in as a

Equally, it is quite clear that any officialwhodoesbusinesswitheThekwini should be fired yet they merely often just get off with only written warnings.” “The DA has repeatedly requested for a review of this policy to be undertaken by an independent board to make recommendations on how it canbeimprovedbut,todate,theserequests have been ignored by the ANC caucus.

“For as long as the situation remains where councillors and officials feel it is easy to do business with the state and the consequences are flimsy at best,theproblemofcorruptionandillicit business dealings at the expensive of service delivery will continue. “TheDAwillsubmitamotiontothe next full council sitting to ensure that an independent board is set up to review the SCM policy and to make recommendations within 3 months.” SpeakingtotheWeekly,ANCcoun-

cillor, Chocks Arunajallam said the matter had been put to rest. “The DA is once again trying to use amatterthathadbeenresolvedbythe ruling party to gain political mileage. “The ANC and its structures initiated the report and have instituted appropriate action against those found wanting. “There has also been an ammended code of conduct that will now further guide officials and councillors,” he said.

Forum declares war on drugs KAVEEL SINGH ‘PEOPLE’S power’ was the call from the TongaatAnti-DrugForum(TADF)when,together with community organisations and individuals, they led a motorcade through Buffelsdale, Chelmsford Heights, Flamingo Heights, Belvedere and Belgate on Saturday. TADF’s Harold Maistry said the recent scourge of drug activity in the greater Tongaat area prompted the organisation to confront the issue and ‘make a difference in the lives of our youth’. “The recent introduction of sugars and whoonga is a serious concern in our community. This highly-addictive drug has found its way into the lives of our children - some of them as young as 12-years-old.” He said that known drug dealers, whose

details were supplied by the community and verified through proper checks, were visited by the participants in the motorcade. The police were also present. “The message to these drug dealers was very clear.ThecommunityofTongaatwill not tolerate drug dealing in our town. We will not sit idly while the lives of our children are at risk. Tongaat should be drug free. ‘People’s Power’ will win the fight against drugs. We are prepared to take the fight right to their doorsteps,” he said. Maistry, on behalf of the TADF, thanked community organisations and individuals who supported the campaign. Future motorcades are scheduled for September 14 (central and northern areas) and October 19 (Beach area). Watch press for further details.

HE Minority Front Youth Association (MFYA) held a successful financial literacy programme in Phoenix recently. The purpose of the programme was to inform young people on the importance of saving and investments, as well as how to prepare a healthy fiscal future. Youth converged at the venue to participate in the initiative. The programme was conducted by a qualified financial adviser from First National Bank, who also opened saving accounts for members of the community free of charge. Jonathan Annipen, chairperson of the Minority Front Youth Association, said youth should escape another financial recession. “Our association has planned a workshop to

educate our teenagers on how to live within a budget as well as save for the future. It will be a sad day in our country, should we ever have to declare that we have to move people who we can provide for. “The issue is not the population, rather it is how the population manages its money and prevents unnecessary spending, especially spending money they do not have.” Member of the provincial legislature and leader of the Minority Front, Shameen ThakurRajbansi said the financial literacy programme was started by the provincial treasury. “They did so to encourage youth to save and invest wisely. Budgeting for studies and asset management and growth is most important for people from 18 to 35, this is when they are the most economically active.”

Protec students build bridges THREE teams from Protec Tongaat participated in the SA Institute of Civil Engineers (SAICE) Inter­ schools Bridge Building competition held at the Greyville Race Course recently. Organised by SAICE, the aim of the competition was to give young people the opportunity to test their skills and aptitude in engineering concepts in a fun and interesting way. Over 50 teams from 17 different schools participated in the KwaZulu­Natal competition. Each team was given a bundle of 25 strips of balsa wood and a pack of Pratley adhesive to build their bridge. The team who built bridge that could carry the heaviest load was the winner. The Protec team’s bridge carried a weight of 150 newtons. “These inter­school competitions are very valu­ able in that they give young people the opportunity to apply their mathandphysicalscienceinapractical and fun way and help develop problem solving skills,

Big on car, small on price >> New age Almera offers class space

Nissan Almera

T

HE all­new Nissan Almera is now availableinSouthAfrica,bringingstyl­ ish design and exceptional value to­ gether in one complete package. With its bold new design, ultimately ef­ ficientpackaging,extremelyspaciousinteri­ or, large boot and sound power train, we ex­ pect the new Almera to prove even more popular than before. In South Africa, the Almera name had a strong following at the beginning of this century. With the new Almera, Nissan will certainly continue its reputation for provid­ ing an affordable, reliable vehicle with the brand’s ethos of ‘Innovation that Excites’ coming through strongly The Almera has large exterior dimen­

sions, a spacious interior and a big boot – three key design points which dictated the development of the new vehicle. A well­designed car inside and out, the Almera has class­leading rear legroom and luggage capacity in particular, as well as a functional cabin – all at an exceptionally af­ fordable price. Complementing the standard safety equipment, the new Nissan Almera is geared to appeal on all levels thanks to a broad level of standard equipment. Available in one model grade, the new Almera 1.5 Acenta manual and automatic models feature remote central locking, full colour coding, chrome exterior detailing, 15­ inchalloywheels,electricdoormirrors,man­

ual air conditioning and dedicated rear vents. It also has independent fan speed con­ trol, a radio/CD/MP3 audio system with aux input port, four speakers, steering wheel au­ dio controls, a height­adjustable driver’s seat, tilt adjustment for the steering wheel, remote central locking with speed­sensitive auto­locking doors and a comprehensive trip computer with two trip meters, instant and average fuel economy readouts, tank range and service information. Theall­newNissanAlmerarangeisavail­ able as standard with a 3­year/60 000 km service plan and Nissan’s 3­year/ 100 000 km warranty. Service intervals are 15 000 km.

Check your tyre pressure – Ensuring you have the correct tyre pressure can have a massive impact on fuel consumption as well as handling. Low tyre pressure can cause blowouts. Trim the ‘fat’ ­ Weight can be another fac­ tor in increased fuel consumption as well as

affecting your vehicle’s handling. Unload unnecessary items from your car. Don’t rubberneck ­ Many drivers are tempted to slow down and have a look at an accident on the side of the road but doing so causes others following to slow down for no reason. All those vehicles then have to accelerate to get going, wasting fuel in the process. Don’t drive angry – This is easier said than done, especially in traf­ fic but angry driving burns more fuel. Burning out at traffic lights or weaving be­ tween lanes results in unnecessary accelera­ tion and fuel use. Are you in tune – A vehicle service is a task few look forward to but while you may be saving money in servic­ ing costs, you’ll end up paying in the long run with poor fuel con­ sumption. If you wait too long to have your vehicle serv­ iced your may end up having to fork over thousands to your me­ chanic. Plan your journey ­ A wrong turn could lead to extra kilometres added to your journey resulting in burning more fuel. Rushing out to the shops three or four times over a week­ end also impacts your pocket. Draw up a shopping list and ensure you com­ plete all your errands in one trip.

Fuel saving tips WITH the increasing price of petrol, motor­ ists are having to dig deeper into their wal­ lets before starting the engines of their cars. There are many ways you can reduce your fuel consumption. Here are some fuel­sav­ ing tips:

al friend of Nair eloquently emphasised a lack in the education sector and highlighted the importance of the constitution–adocumentthatisoften blindly referred to by many political opportunists of our current day. Yacoob ensured that all understood what heroes such as Billy Nair really stood for. He highlighted strong leadershipandtheabilitytostaycommitted to the common man as some of Nair's redeeming qualities. One wonders where leadership of Nair's calibre has gone in 2013. Locally, we find councillors and public officials dragging their feet seldom paying attention to serious challenges of the people. Instead, they tend to be reactive. Never proactive. Never

attempting to take to the streets and fight crime, or uplift education. Ask a big smile of these “leaders” however, and they are ever willing to strike up poses that would surprise even a seasoned Facebooking teenager. Ourleadersarefarfromthecalibre of a simple, humourous, committed man such as Billy Nair. His lack of selfish gain and constant strength and sacrifice is a symbol of a lost generation of real men. Perhaps our leaders would do well to understand the history of the liberation struggle and its true symbolism. Because as it stands, in 2013, our leaders lack any conviction or true commitment to you...the people.

I am thankful I attended the Women’s Day Colloquium on Sunday last week at the Shree Veeraboga Emperumal Temple (SVET) in Gandhi’s Hill, Tongaat. The members of SVET invited many high profile speakers to address the audience on their theme “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow”. It truly was an enthralling, exciting and eventful day. All the speakers used the theme to expand on women’s role in society, their contributions over many decades and the lega-

cy left for the present generation. Those of us who were fortunate to be present were inspired and entertained from beginning to end. SVET members must be commended and congratulated for their loving, caring and sharing attitude. Sheila M. Naidoo FOSA Diabetes Awareness Co-ordinator
