A fitting farewell
December 13, 2013
>> Citizens say goodbye to the country’s most loved icon KAVEEL SINGH
ELSON Mandela, one of the world's most beloved statesmen and a colossus of the 20th century, died at his home in Johannesburg on Thursday, 12 December. He was 95. Menzi Zwane, secretary for the Dr Pixley ka Seme Region bid Madiba a sorrowful farewell. “Thank you for ushering us into the first phase of the liberation transition. May your undying spirit marshall us through the second phase of the transition. The Mandelas, ANC, South Africa and the whole family of Nations have been struck by an unmeasurable blow.” Minority Front (MF) councillor Praggie Padayachee said Mandela had given the world andthecountrygreatnessthatwouldnotlikely be repeated. He also said political parties must not piggy back of Madiba's death. “If we are going to adopt this man as our figure of hope, we must also learn to adopt his principles and the way he lived his life. We must stamp out corruption and crime and live by his way of life, that is peace and unity.” ANC councillor Michael Abrahams said the death of Madiba had a profound effect not only locally, but on the whole world. “Never before has the world witnessed an event of this magnitude. We, in South Africa, areimmenselyproudtohavehadaleaderwho impacted on the whole world. I was privileged to serve under his presidency as a ember of Parliament at the National Assembly in Cape Town. Simplistic in nature, but profound in thought and deed. He was so humble that he touched the lives of little children, the youth and the elderly.” Tongaat Civic Association chairperson Jeeva Pillay said Mandela, together with the other members of the ANC, extended the hand of reconciliation on his release from imprisonmentandhesetaboutachievingthatwhichthe ANC stood for. “The lessons from him are too numerous to list. He was not a great man - saintly was a more appropriate description after his release and during his term as president. Historically Mandela is the only person who I know, who resides in the hearts of all citizens in the world - irrespective of race, religion or culture. It is unfortunate that after his presidency he chose to retire from politics. His silence allowed his comrades to stray from the true path of the ANC and to reign unchecked thereafter. His comrades in the ANC let him down and continue to do so right now.” DA councillor Brian Jayanathan quoted Mandela who said: “The brave man is not one who fears for his life, it’s the one that conquers fear.” “These profound words have been echoed from the world’s greatest statesman, amidst his torture, pain and sufferings. During the struggle Mandela took refugee in Tongaat, where he stayed and worked as a petrol attendant with the Hurbans family.”
HE (MANDELA) WAS SO HUMBLE THAT HE TOUCHED THE LIVES OF LITTLE CHILDREN, THE YOUTH AND THE ELDERLY.

Tongaat Mall collapse: Parties urge department to speed up investigations KAVEEL SINGH
HE Department of Labour is facing political pressure to speed up investigations into the Tongaat Mall disaster matter. The department stated that it would take up to a year to for an investigation to be completed. This investigation will determine the police’s criminal investigation and the eThekwini Municipality’s decision to take further legal steps against the company responsible for the tragedy. The investigation into the accident, in which two people died and 29 were injured when the partially completed mall collapsed last month, begins next month. In a rare moment of unity, the African National Congress (ANC) and the Democratic Allilance (DA) expressed concern about the time frame and called for the investigation to be accelerated. ANC spokesperson Senzo Mkhize said the party appreciated the complexity of the investigation, but urged the department to apply more resources to it and speed it up.

steps to file a contempt of court order against the company, but these too were being delayed pending the report. eThekwini mayor James Nxumalo said at an executive committee meeting on Tuesday that once the report was released, the city would decide its next step. Mkhize said that the municipality should blacklist the construction company and businessman Daniel Jay Singh, whose son, Ravi Jagadasan, is the sole director. This was to ensure the city did no more “business” with the controversial businessman and his family. Department of Labour spokesman Nhlanhla Khumalo said it would like the inquiry to be completed quickly, but a possible lack of cooperation by affected parties was taken into account in estimating a time frame. “The collation of information and documents from stakeholders is to be submitted by 31 December,” said Khumalo. “The formal inquiry will then begin (provisionally) in the third week of January,” he added.

“It is a critical investigation and a year is too long,” said Mkhize. He said that people were eagerly waiting for the report and the matter needed to be resolved promptly as it had given the province a “bad name”. The DA’s provincial leader Sizwe Mchunu, said there was a trend in KwaZulu-Natal for large-scale investigations or inquiries to take “forever”. “Clearly this is unacceptable. There are deaths involved here. An issue this prominent needs to be laid to bed quickly,” said Mchunu. “Justice delayed is justice denied,” he added. KZN police spokesman Thulani Zwane said although a docket had been opened on two counts of culpable homicide, the report was needed before the police could continue as it is part of the evidence. The eThekwini Municipality had apparently issued several notices instructing the mall’s developer - Rectangle Property Investments - to halt construction in the months leading up to the incident. The municipality has been taking

Unidentified body discovered

>> “...it appears the body was lying in the cane for several days...”
RUSA officers investigate the damaged abandoned vehicle that was found by the public.
HE body of an unidentified man has been recovered in Osindisweni near Oakford Priory. According to Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) head Prem Balram, his officers received a call from members of the public informing them of a red Hyundai Elantra found extensively damaged in a sugar cane field. “Upon arriving at the scene, officers found the vehicle with registration number PDV 943 GP in the sugar field with extensive damages. Members of the public then followed a stench
and recovered the decomposed body lying approximately 50 metres away from the vehicle. “The body of a male who was wearing blue jeans and a black shirt was unidentifiable. His cellphone was found a further 50 metres away from his body. It appears that the body was lying in the cane for several days.” This incident has occurred approximately 2km away from the Osindisweni Provincial Hospital. “Reaction Unit officers traced the vehicle to a complex in Pretoria, Gauteng, however the family or next of kin could not be located,” said Balram.

>> Local resident fights drug use amongst teens with holistic approach Jarrod Cronje
ORTH coaster Jarrod Cronje spoke about his own experiences with drugs, and his subsequent anti-drug programme, at Abundance at the Quarter centre last Friday. Cronje, a recovering cocaine addict. has dedicated his life to educating teens about drugs and to trying to prevent youngsters getting hooked. He is currently a member of the Tongaat AntiDrug Forum as well as working with other individuals and groups in the area. He is planning on launching his company, Teen Charter SA in April 2014. Cronje said he reached rock bottom on 31 October 2011 when he had no money, no work and found himself in a bar in Johannesburg, writing a letter to himself about his addiction and its destructive force in his life. His cousin found him and he went to rehab for the third time eight years. He then started helping out with some of the patients at a rehab in Greytown, when he was well on the road to recovery, and thus found his path. “There is no way of scientifically telling if a person is predisposed to becoming an addict or not, so it is better just to stay away from drugs altogether. “There is only a

three to five percent recovery rate for addicts in South Africa - it is very scary,” said Cronje. The youngest addict he is working with at the moment is a child of just nine-years-old in Tongaat. With Teen Charter SA, Cronje plans to take teenagers on school field groups to rehab centres and local jails to show them what happens to drug users, as well as to provide advice and counselling for teens, parents and family members. Cronje said in his experience, people who do not know their purpose in life are more likely to start using drugs. “I want to help kids to realise their passion and purpose in life to keep them off drugs. It is a very hectic world out there and it can be tough for young people to find their way. My work is about keeping healthy kids healthy,” said Cronje. Cronje will be focusing on the prevention aspect, and he is collaborating with an addiction specialist in Durban North who will be handling those already addicted. During his talk herevealedsomeeye-openingstatistics. He said R1 of every R4 spent in the country is spent on drugs, and that just about any drug can be obtained in Ballito within 15 minutes from people like car guards. According to Cronje, authorities know who the dealers are, but the laws are as such that they have to be caught in possession of large amounts of narcotics in order to warrant arrest. Cronje grew up in Durban and lived and worked in the hospitality industry in Johannesburg for 12 years before moving to Ballito about a year and a half ago. He said Teen Charter SA will start as a KwaZulu-Natal venture, but long term will become a national initiative.

Wishing all our customer a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year
MINISTER of basic education Angie Motshekga released the Annual National Assessment(ANA) results on Thursday last week. The ANA was been written by seven million pupils this year in an attempt to determine the future of the education system in South Africa. It aims to provide teachers, pupils and parents with guidelines to ensure that their children perform at a satisfactory rate. It has also been created to act as a tool within the system to ensure that pupils within grades one, three and nine measure up to the expectations the government has when regarding the pupils’ maths and literacy skills. Motshekga said she is pleased with the steady increase within the intermediate phases. However, she said that the results within the higher grades are a‘disaster’asgradeninehad a one per cent overall increase and only three percent of these pupils achieved above 50%. Motshekga further stated that grade nine is the weak link and placed blame on teachers who give too much attention to grades 11 and 12, neglecting the intermediate phase. SD Maharaj, a local foundation phase teacher of 30 years said that the reasons for the results could be barriers to learning that some pupils face. “There are socio-economic concernswithinourcountrythat stops these children from achieving the necessary marks needed. “Some children come from homes where their priorities differ, opposed to those who have such necessities such as food, shelter, water and a level of emotional stability.”

The loss of a great man should inspire us all
VERYONE is talking about whether you are South African or not, the death of Nelson Mandela has seen a nation and world in turmoil come together to honour
not just a man, but his way of life. Media houses have bombarded the public with information regarding Mandela and his death. From preparations for his funeral, assessments of his family tree, his past contributions and many other aspects of his life – we have been celebrating his life in excess from the moment of his death – and why not? There are critics and political stalwarts who argue that Nelson Mandela was just one man and that the apartheid struggle was overcome with collective efforts. This is true. But there is something different about Mandela that stood out for the rest of the world and our country. His leadership of the time – greats such as
Oliver Tambo, Billy Nair and Chief Albert Luthuli to name a few all understood what their war was about. They realised that the fight against oppression was not a physical one. Yes, there was the Umkhonto we Sizwe wing that certainly did damage to the apartheid government – but it was more symbolism that won the battle of good over evil. Mandela and many others spent decades in prison without wanting despite guards and other resources being available to them. His leadership understood what it meant to be incarcerated as a method of victory. International pressures mounted onto the apartheid government over a long period of time and
Mandela and his great the ANC party shone brightly for the world to see. His symbolism of peace and forgiveness is amazing. It is something that the then leadership understood to be the true weapon against evil. Today, I look at the ANC and, like most of you, I see a country in shambles, but bursting with potential. WouldMadibabehappywithwhat his liberation movement has given us today? I doubt it. Walk into our townships and you see desperate levels of poverty and pain. You see youth who are uneducated and lack parental supervision. You see a society in decline not just financially, but spiritually as well. Nelson Mandela was just a man. A
manwhowassimpleandhopeful.But he represents something far greater in our society and in our world. There is hope. There is always hope. Yes, we are corrupt and yes our country is drinking a slow poison. But if we come together like people of his era envisaged, we can help unite and grow our country. Wemustfirstunderstandwhatour principles are as human beings before we think of finally liberating our people. We must stop child headed house holds and inculcate a sense of responsibility with parents. We must create love. This is how we can ensure Madiba's legacy lives on. Let’s show the world we are what he preached.

A man with a mission >> Mr India South Africa hopeful aims to change lives starting with his community WEEKLY REPORTER
E is modest, successful and aims to mobilise the youth – this Verulam youngster hopes to use these attributes to win him the Mr India South Africa title this month. Ashley Naidu (27) aspires to positively change the lives of youth and he says this competition provides him with the perfect platform to achieve this. Naidu, together with the other the contestants, even had the opportunity to work with children at the International Bank Vaults (IBV) Children’s Day celebration. “The event really stood out for me. I took my place in the arts and craft sections and mingled with the kids while painting their faces,” said Naidu. “I still remember the first kid I interacted with. He was lost among the 2500 children at the event. After a lot of searching, I felt like a hero after reuniting the crying child with his twin sister.” Naidu grew up in Verulam and attributes his successes thus far to his close-knit family. “I am the man I am today due to the grace of God and my parents. My mom and dad have instilled in me the importance of appreciating the simple things in life.” Naidu studied graphic design, fine art and animation at the Centre for Fine Arts, Animation and Design (CFAD) and is currently the multimediadeveloperatSuncoastCasino,Hotels and Entertainment.
He started his career at Suncoast as the website designer and in a short space he increased his experience in the industry. He was also introduced tothemodellingindustryatSuncoast. “Ialwaysenjoyedbeingbehindthe scenes rather than in the spotlight. However,inthelastfiveyearsthathas changed as I was exposed to the modelling industry by my colleagues at Tsogo Sun and Suncoast. I was part of various shoots which enabled me to gain experience in front of the camera,” he said. Naidu contemplated entering Mr IndiaSouthAfricaafewyearsagoand eventually “went for it” when a colleague mentioned it. “Events like these”, said Naidu, “open a number of doors for building relationships and networking but, most importantly, to make a difference in thecommunity.” The Mr India SA competition is for South African men who love Indian arts and culture. Naidu loves everything about the Indian culture, but also appreciates and acknowledges his South African heritage. He aims to use the traditional values inspired by both cultures to help young people as he believes it is these valuesthateveryyoungSouthAfrican needs to achieve greatness. “I want to be a leader - a man anyone, both young and old, can look up to and turn to. I want to make an impact and change lives - especially the lives of youth.” Naidu will compete against 19 contestants from around the country
at the finals which takes place on Saturday, 21 December at Sibaya. Naidu needs your help to bring home the title – go to Facebook and like Ashley Naidu’s picture on the “Mr India South Africa - 2013” page.
