Crack down on suspects >> Quick thinking police swoop in on cigarette thieves WEEKLY REPORTER THE provincial police task team, estab­ lished to crack down on a trend where suspects targeted employees of British American Tobacco and robbed them of their goods, are walking tall after seven successful convictions. IProvincial SAPS spokesperson, colonel Jay Naicker said a 27­year­old employee of British American Tobacco was deliv­ ering boxes of cigarettes on Prickle Pear Road in Waterloo, Verulam on July 16.

“While he was in the process of deliver­ ing boxes of cigarettes to the Ntshebe Tuckshop he was accosted by three men who demanded his vehicle keys. “They tied his hands with cable ties, forced him into the vehicle and drove off. They then stopped a short distance away from the scene and removed sev­ en boxes of cigarettes valued at R80 000 before fleeing.” A case of kidnapping and robbery was reported at the Verulam police station. Naicker said, during his daily crime as­

sessment, lieutenant general Mma­ monye Ngobeni noticed that there was a trend developing where suspects were holding up employees of British Ameri­ can Tobacco and robbing them of their goods. She directed members of the provincial task team to investigate these cases. Naicker said the team was as­ signed five dockets for investigation for cases reported in Verulam, Inanda, Ntu­ zuma, Umlazi and Cato Manor. “Following an intensive investiga­

tion, members of the task team arrest­ ed a syndicate of seven men involved in the robberies. On July 17 three suspects were arrested and charged with the kid­ napping and robbery that was reported in Verulam.” Last Wednesday the three accused were convicted in the Verulam Magistrate’s Court for kidnapping and robbery. Sifiso Maiselo (39) and Thulasizwe Ngwane (44) were sentenced to 10 years for robbery and five years for kidnapping each and Sibongoma Nkomo (33) was

Ngobeni said that this investiga­ tion reaffirmed the belief that the multi­disciplinary task team approach is most effective in dealing with criminal syndicates. “I want to offer my congrat­ ulations to our provincial task team for their swift and firm approach during this investigation.

Pillay also made recommendations to UKZN for the need to address critical issues that surrounded the NPDE programme. Pillay has also submittedanarticleofherstudytothe South African Journal of Education. Loopoo a senior foundation phase educator at Shakaskraal Primary School is a master’s graduate. Her book, “The Use of Adapted Teaching Strategies by Educators in Literacy†showed that educators

lacked adequate skills to adapt their teaching strategies. She said this was as a result of not being adequately trained to teach literacy within multilingual contexts. Loopoo has presented at the International Conference on Education Research and Innovation (ICERI) in Spain in 2010. Her topic was “Barriers to Learning within a South African context”.

>> Acacia Primary receives computers KAVEEL SINGH

A

CACIA Primary School received a significant technological boost on Friday, after Brenco Reelin Bearings SA donated 20 computers with internet facilities and a projector for a computer room at the school. The donation is part of the company’s social responsibility project which includes a donation to three other schools. At the official opening, principal Vis Govender was full of praise for Reelin Bearings head, Boycee Naidoo. “Words cannot quantify the appreciation our school and community has

for what you have given to us. When one thinks of computers, you immediately think of Bill Gates and the Windows brand. You have also opened a window of opportunity for us. “The power of the computer is incredible and will surely improve our pupils and teachers. We must also be responsible with this gift and ensure it is well taken care off and not abused in any way.” Addressing learners and dignitaries, pupil Mayuri Ranjith said she felt “blessed” to have the new equipment at her disposal. “I recently had to complete a project and the information I gathered from the computer was invaluable to this. It

has improved my typing skills and my general manner of thinking. We are indeed grateful.” At the event, Naidoo said he came from humble beginnings, much like the pupils at Acacia Primary. “To achieve something, it is important to always motivate yourself and say that you can and you will. Our company has done this from our hearts and we are glad to see the impact it is making. You are the future and we hope technology will help you achieve your dreams.” Naidoo also heaped praise for the staff and management of the school saying they “reeked of passion”. He also pledged to grant 100 pupils a full bursary at the school.

The brochure committee for the Billy Nair Circuit

KAVEEL SINGH

S

TRUGGLE stalwart Billy Nair will be honoured by the department of education at the launch of the Billy Nair Circuit event at Tongaat Town Hall on Thursday, August 14. Speaking to the Weekly, convenor of the event, LB Maharaj said educatorsareproudtoannouncethelaunch of the circuit. The Billy Nair Circuit will comprise 38 schools in the Tongaat and Verulam areas. Maharaj said they anticipate a guest list of around 300 which will be made up of principals, educators, department and government officials, parents, learners, politicians, civics, welfare, cultural, religious, sporting aswellasprivatesectorstakeholders. The commemorative brochure

where the rich legacy of the late Billy Nair will be showcased will also be launched at the event. “We are hoping that the launch of the Billy Nair Circuit and education desk will herald a new beginning among the youth of our country and in Tongaat and Verulam areas in particular. We want Billy Nair’s name to ignite a new energy and spirit to motivateourlearnerstoalwaysstrivetobe the best,” said Maharaj. Nair was born in Sydenham, Durban on 27 November 1929. After he matriculated, he began his university education while on Robben Island. Initially, he was employed as a bookkeeper and later in a dairy in Durban from which he was soon fired due to his trade union activities. In 1951 he became a full-time secretary of the Dairy Workers Union. As a trade

MUNGOV ESTATE

unionist he believed in multi-racialism and worked with people of all colours. In interviews he highlighted issues such as labour laws, job reservation, unfair labour practices to workers in the mines, farms and industry. He spoke strongly of the exploiters and the exploited, of segregationandapartheidintherailwaysstations, parks and lifts. Nair’s political awareness began during his college years and later increased during the Passive Resistance Campaign of 1946. During his recollection of rallies he noted one thattookplaceattheRedSquare(now the Nicol Square Garage) against the Asiatic Land Tenure and Indian RepresentationAct(1946),wherebyIndians were to be forcefully removed from so-called White areas and in return be given representation in par-

liament by three White representatives. In 1949, Nair joined the Natal Indian Youth Congress and became its secretary in 1950. He also joined the Natal Indian Congress (NIC) and served as a member of its executive committee in the 1952 Defiance Campaign called by the Congress Movement. Nair was active in the Umkonto We Sizwe (Spear of the Nation), the military wing of the ANC, since its inception. His participation in various acts of sabotage led to his eventual arrest in 1963. At the famous Treason Trial of the 1950s and 1960s, in which he was one of the accused for Treason under the Suppression of Communism Act, he received a 20 year sentence which he served on Robben Island. He later spoke about the police torture and the difficult and unbear-

ablelifeintheprisoncellsandonRobben Island. While in prison, Nair was an active participant of the “University” which was informal education system run by prisoners. He also obtained study privileges in time and completedBA(inEnglish),andB.Com degrees through the University of South Africa. Even though he completed most of the required classes toward a B.Proc degree,hehadtoabandonitafterseveral detentions. Sonny Venkatratnam, a fellow prisoner, smuggled a copy of Shakespeare into the prison in which all the leading prisoners marked their favourite passages. This copy was later called the Robben Island Bible. Billy Nair chose Caliban's lines from The Tempest: “This island's mine, by Sycorax my mother”.

Celebrating Women’s Month

Slimworld ­ For a slimmer you >>Women shed weight and share their success stories ADVERTORIAL

M

y name is Shellona from Stanger and I am a mother of three. I never thought I could get my figure back, but Slim World has given me new hope. After my first treatment on the new i­lipo machine, I lost an amazing 12cm in just half an hour. My husband was and still is in a state of shock. I can’t wait for my next appointment. I never thought weight loss would be this easy. It is money well spent. My name is Elain and I am 35 years old. Three months ago I came across an advert in the paper with people claiming to have lost sev­

eral kilograms over a short period of time using the i­lipo machine at Slim World. Having tried many weight loss programmes with no results, I decided to try this one. To my surprise, after just one treat­ ment I had lost 10cm of my waist and now just three months later in now a size 32 after being a size 38 for almost six years. I am so grateful to SlimWorld, the i­lipo and advice. Anyone who’s tried to lose weight and failed to try i­lipo, it’s quick and painless with amaz­ ing results. What is a Woman? A woman is one of the most beautiful creations of God. She shows her respect as a daughter, you feel her care in the form of a sister, feel her warmth in the form of a friend. Why did God create man first before creating woman? Of course, because its always good to make a rough draft before making a masterpiece. Womanarestrong,smart,sensual,caring,giving, surviving, tolerant and powerful so ladies feel proud of who you are and make the most of your special day. Slimworld would like to take this opportunity in wishing all woman a Happy Women's Day.

O you wonder why we celebrate Women's Day on 9 August in South Africa? This day com­ memorates 9 August 1956 when women par­ ticipating in a national march petitioned against pass laws. Over 20 000 women of all races and ages from every corner of South Africa marched together towards the Union Buildings in Pretoria. Organised by the Federation of South African Women, the March was led by four brave women; Helen Joseph, Rahima Moosa, Sophie Williams and Lilian Ngoyi. The leaders delivered petitions to Prime Minister JG Strijdom's office within the Union Build­ ings. Women throughout South Africa had put their names to these petitions indicating their anger. To conclude the Women's March the women sang freedom songs such as Nkosi sikeleli Afrika, however, the song that became the anthem of the march was: ‘wathint' abafazi, wathint' imbokodo, uza kufa!’ ‘When you strike a woman, you strike a rock, you will be crushed [you will die]!’ The march was a resounding success and South Africa recognises the bravery of these women who risked arrest, detention and banning by declaring 9 August National Women’s Day. ­ Source: http://www.inspiringwomen.co.za

WRITE TO THE EDITOR Why should Indians be sidelined? Mazibuye African Forum seems to be a racist organisation while our country has moved on with democracy and its challenges. To even suggest to strip Indians of BEE beneficiary status smacks of jealousy of the great strides Indians have made in our economy and country as a whole. We have lived in harmony with our black brothers and sisters. We should help in building our nation based on its diversity bringing in different skills and experience. Already the Indian community is discriminated through affirmative action and equity plans and in many instances they are in over supply in their job places. It is already hurting. Enough is enough. I do not want to dwell on the history of the Indian community, but I want to emphasise education was close to their hearts and the fruits are reaped generations after generation. It was possible all through hard work and perseverance. We know BEE has benefited some through lucrative government contracts and did little to encourage and support emerging black businesses. Broad-based black economic empowerment must be supported including Indians. If correctly implemented, it will pull people into the economy, reduce unemployment and stimulate growth which is so desperately needed in our country. The utterances by the forum to put fear in the Indian community have instead galvanised the minority community of about 1.2 million people. We must not blight our democracy but rather build a brighter future for ALL. ONE NATION ONE FUTURE. Councillor Madhun Sobram Sing DA Chairperson iLembe Constituency

Closer to a nanny state?

LEGAL LEGWORK

When the landlord, tenant relationship breaks THEASEN PILLAY The Constitution of our country recognises that everyone has a right to adequate housing. As rental housing is an integral component of the housing sector, there was a need to establish laws that balance the rights of tenants and landlords, whilst also establishing a mechanism through which conflicts can be resolved cost effective and speedily. As a result, the Rental Housing Act of 1999, came into being and although this Act is over a decade old, very few people know how it can protect their rights.

The Act also created rental tribunals, which are specialist forums, dealing exclusively with disputes between landlords and tenants on matters relating to tenancy disputes and unfair practices. The rental tribunal is an extremely powerful organisation, and arguably is best suited to decide on conflicts between landlords and tenants. The findings of the tribunal has the same effect as an order from the magistrate’s court. The Act recognises that tenants and landlordshaveenforceablerights,someofwhich include:Tenant: * The right to privacy and not to have the premises inspected in an unreasonable manner. * Not to have their home searched or property seized by the landlord, except through a lawful court process. * Not to have the electricity and water unlawfully disconnected by the landlord. Landlords: * The right to prompt and regular payments, in terms of the agreed lease. *Torecoverunpaidrentalsandterminate the lease, in a lawful manner. Interesting/Important provisions of the Act: * A landlord is obliged to reduce the terms of the lease to writing, if the tenant makes

such a request. * A landlord must furnish the tenant with receipts of all rentals paid. * The deposit paid by the tenant, must be put into an interest bearing account, in favour of the tenant. The tribunal also deals with claims of overcrowding, unacceptable living conditions,poormaintenanceofthepremisesand exploitative rentals. Where a complaint has been lodged with the tribunal, the landlord can be precluded fromevictingthattenant,untilthecomplaint has been resolved by the tribunal. Ejection of tenants, or any unlawful occupants, can only be authorised via a court order and effected by the sheriff of the court. The Prevention of Illegal Eviction Act (P.I.E. Act), as well as recent high court judgements, have specified procedures that must be adopted with evicting occupants from a residential property. Landlords, or the agents, are not allowed to change locks, disconnect water and electricity or intimidate tenants to vacate. This is called “spoliation”, which in common terms means, “taking the law into your own hands”. It is, however, extremely important that anyone who receives “court papers���, seek proper legal advice as the consequences of ejectmentaresevereandcanbeirreparable.

FIRST it was prayer that was removed from schools, then corporal punishment and now someone else is going to tell me that if I discipline my own child I am going to be charged and put in jail or fined. That's absurd. I am a Christian parent and according to the Bible we are instructed to discipline our children. I was discipline as a child and I thank my parents for that because when I look back the disciplining saved me and taught me that it was for my own benefit. There is a difference between disciplining in love and disciplining with the intention of physically abusing a child. I am totally against this draft that is trying to do away with parents disciplining their kids. I love my kids and know what's best for them. Proverbs 13 verse 24 says: “He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines him promptly”. I live by biblical ways therefore, it is my right according to law to have freedom of religion so no one is going to change that. I can't understand how the government can pass a law to kill unborn babies, yet want to pass laws preventing parents disciplining children. In some instances proper discipline can save a child’s life. What a contradiction in my opinion. Concerned Chris­ tian parent Ashen Mohanlal Ballito

Parent's expectations Parents pride and joy are their children. Children are provided with all the luxuries that life has to offer by their parents. The latest cell phones, gaming devices, big screen monitors etc are part of the techno savy package. Education is a priority and extremely costly but a tertiary qualifica-

tion will give their children a competitive edge in a scarce job market. Parents have an obligation in respect of nurturing and caring for the child once they are brought into this world. Children cannot be looked upon as a safety net for parents when they get older. The young adults lifestyles are

very different in this day and age. The materialistic tendencies and that unwavering quest to have the best that life has to offer comes at a price. Parents have a sense of entitlement with regard to their children taking care of them in their old age. This notion can eventuallysetthemupfordisappoint-

ment. Every person needs to prepare adequately for retirement and be self reliant when the time comes. If you are fortunate enough to be cared for by your children then consider that a bonus. The scriptures tell us that the only person that can be relied upon is God because he will never let you

down. Maybe parents expect too much of their children in their old age but can this ever be true? Sometimes children have short memories and forgetwheretheyareisbecauseofthe efforts and blessings of their parents. Vijay Surujpal

WEEKLY REPORTER

AIDSTONE A were given a rude awakening when they were ousted out of the Checkout Cup by the Beeva Ramblers under 19 outfit. They are currently playing in

the division one league. This was a huge upset beating one of the toughest sides in SAFA Tongaat. The match ended 0-0 in the normal regulation time and the game was eventually decided by the dreadful penalty shootout.

Maidstone defender Stuart Clark failed to score the final penalty even on the second attempt. Beeva’s manager Seelan Pillay said, as a result, of this win “the boys are inspired and are going all out to give it their best in the Checkout competition”.
