R AISING RAISING ffunds unds or ffor ttoilets oilets Grade 10 pupils from Esiqongweni High School have started a fundrais ing project to replace all the toilets that are not working at the school PHOTO:NOKULUNGA NGOBESE
>> Children of Esiqongeni are doing it for themselves by fundraising money to fix their toilets which are not working NOKULUNGA NGOBESE
ACK of proper toilets at EsiqongeniHighSchool,hasprompted the school’s Grade 10 pupils to start fundraising in a bid to repair or replace all toilets that are not working.
The group, known as Y-Cap buddies, aims to have replaced at least eight toilets through donations and fundraising initiatives by the end of this year. School teacher, Thembile Dlamini, said that the project is part of their life orientation practicals, which is to identify those things that
disrupt teaching and learning in schools. Under the theme: ‘Learners unite to renovate their school’, the pupils have applied for funding from potential sponsors, and will print donation forms for all pupils at the school. They will also host events as a fundraising strategy. Group chairperson
Operating Hours: 06h30 - 17h00, Monday to Friday Breakfast & Lunch provided Transport available (enquire in store)
Khanyisani Duma said: “The project deals with all those things that are a hindrance to pupils performing their utmost best at school. In our school, there are so many resources that we do not have, including proper roofs, but our main challenge is the toilets. “All eight toilets are not working. We are using six of them but they are
unflushable and we have to use buckets to flush them. On top of being unflushable, they are leaking, and sometimes you find water flooding classrooms. “When it is very hot, we cannot even concentrate in class because of the smell coming from them.” He further appealed for support.

Uniforms donated to the needy ECHO REPORTER

Study materials delay costs Unisa students
>> They say they have failed to submit their assignments as a result NOMPENDULO NGUBANE
TUDENTS at the University of South Africa (Unisa) have missed submitting their first assignments due to a delay in the delivery of their study material. Some of the students, who spoke to Echo on condition of anonymity, said the study material was delivered to the university and dumped in one of the lecture rooms at the institution. The students said they usually receive their study material at the beginning of February, but this year it was delayed. A Bachelor of Education Intermediate student said their study material was dumped in a lecture room. The material was scattered inside
that lecture room and students helped themselves to the material, she said. She said the sad thing was that students took stuff that didn’t belong to them because there was no one monitoring, said the student. Asked how they receive their study material, she said they receive it by post. “We receive it by post normally around the beginning of February. We don’t know what happened this year; we were shocked to see our study material dumped at the university. “Noonewasconcernedaboutitand that is why students ended up taking it themselves. No one cared who the study kit was addressed to. Students took any kit that had the stuff they needed. “That left some of the students with-
out any study material as it was taken by others,” she said. Another student said missing the first assignment has affected them a lot. “The first assignment qualifies one for the first exam. We don’t know what is going to happen because the university seems not to care. It doesn’t help to report the matter to them; they are unlikely to offer help. Students who are funded by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) have had glitches as a result of the delay. “They have to produce a student card when they buy text books. They have been unable to buy the text books because they haven’t received the student cards,” said the student. Unisa could not be reached for comment following several attempts.

>>email@example.com HAVING been the lead singer of Loxion Jam for many years now, Machibisa’s Sazi Cele has decided to go solo in a bid to pursue his signature music sound. Cele is currently brewing his 13 track album in studio which will be out this month. He said his music is urban dance, as it contains different elements of music. The 38 year-old musician developed his love for music at the age of 15. He used to sing and perform at church with a group called Go Tell Them. Seeing that his life was about music, he took it seriously by studying music at the Durban University of Technology (Dut). “After finishing my studies, I went to London where I studied music technology. I stayed in London for eight years, came back and that was when the group Loxion Jam was born. We released an album that opened doors for us. We toured countries like Spain and Hong Kong. One of our members passed on and it was just the two of us left. “I have decided to pick up my instruments and continue with the journey of music. This album has been inspired by love. It’s not love of a man and a woman, but love in general. “There are tracks that are so close to my heart, like ‘Ngicela inumber’ and ‘Nginentombi yami’. There is a story behind the ‘Ngicela inumber’ track. We were in Pretoria when the song came into my mind. I was listening to a guy who was complaining that girls don’t like him. “He went on to say that girls were attracted to guys with money. That is why the album is titled ‘Ngicela inumber’. “At that time, I had my guitar with me and the song just came into mind. Everybody will enjoy the album, it’s made out of love and it has a flavour for every age group,” said Cele.

Uma nje kungaphela inkohlakala, izwe lingagcono kakhulu okwedlula loyo ongafuni ukubona. Emva kokuba uMengameli Jacob Zuma ethe iNingizimu Afrika isiyizwe elingcono kakhulu emva kweminyaka engama-20 yokubuswa ngentando-yeningi, kukhona abazwakala emisakazweni bethu lutho akunjalo. Bathi bona intuthuko bayizwa ngendaba, ayikho ezindaweni zabo. Kungenzeka ukube baqinisile ukuthi ayikabonakali ezindaweni
zabo. Kodwa ngabe abayiboni nakwezinye izindawo? Ngabe bafuna ize ifike kubo kuyima bethi izwe selingcono, ngabe alibingcono uma intuthuko ingakafiki kubo? Uma sekufike umgwaqo, engakafiki amanzi nogesi, akusho ukuthi ayikafiki intuthuko, kodwa wuphawu lolo lokuthi nokunye kuyeza. Kukhona abakhala ngenkohlakalo njengembambezela.

Isibaya Part 1: Here is to the end of a gem of a South African story
SIMPHIWE MKHIZE I
DO not know whether to be sad or ex pectanotherinstalmentoffantasticen tertainment from Mzansi Magic’s treat that is the Isibaya drama series. When I heard that Isibaya was grinding to halt this month, I quietly bemoaned the end of real, quality entertainment. But then I did not know whether to be happy orlukewarmwhenaSundaynewspaperre ported that in fact, Isibaya is coming back and the story will continue. I am always not sure of part twos, but part one did strike the right chord with its local actors and actresses who are not only handsome and beautiful people who are appealing to watch on screen, but also ex ude sexuality. It is very difficult for me to say which character impresses me the most in that
wonderful cast of Isibaya. I find it easy to excuse those characters who speak like they are reading because even that be comes a kind of trait of who they are. Be sides, their charisma undermines their flows in ways that are not familiar, (or have I become more tolerant with age?). Mkabayi and her brother, Mpiyakhe Zungu, the rich taxi owners, (the latter of which is bewitched and turned into a mkhovu, that is, a person who serves the interests of those that have bewitched him), carry the story so well. I do not have wordstodescribetheamountofhardwork that went into achieving what I see – what a treat! To use an old friend’s favourite phrase, ‘they are so good, they are good.’ Taxiviolenceandtheuseofmutitoma nipulate and dominate others are perti nentthemesthatareapartofoureveryday lives. Although taxi feuds have gone down nowadays, thanks to the hard work of the democratic government engaging contin uously with the taxi industry leadership, it is not unfamiliar to hear of families turned intofatherlessorbrotherlessunitsjustbe
cause of contests for business and control of routes in the taxi industry. The character of Samson Ndlovu, who is the rival rich taxi owner whose priority in life is to bewitch and dominate the Zun gu family, is one of the best characters in that cast of Isibaya. Obviously, everyone knows someone who has been allegedly turned into a mkhovu like Mpiyakhe or who turns others into a mkhovu (or a Mgijimi – a new name given to Mpiyakhe as Samson’s umkhovu, which means the one who runs errands). This subtheme of the story reminds me how much the modern world has de plored and actually fought against slavery and human trafficking. But through muti (i.e. something that is hard to prove in a court of law unless there is hard evidence like a murder scene, weapons and witnesses), the human race still sees people using other people for free labour, let alone those who are killed for body parts to be used for muti. We speak in our little corners about such disgusting and inhuman acts. Yet there is little or nothing we can do about them. The perpe
trators are known untouchables who live amongst us like there is nothing wrong with their gross and satanic conduct. Indeed, I will miss a lot of characters in Isibaya part one, if they go. The charac ters of Iris, Jackson and Jabulani were the epitome of opulence, sophistication, in sensitivity, greed and arrogance of the present day elite. Needless to say, corrup tion, mutual abuse, deceit and the ulti mate betrayal are the order of the day in Isibaya, as they are in the real world of to day. AndofcourseIrisplaystheroleofastep mother falling in love with her step son, Jabulani, in ways that defy conventional thinkingandwouldupsetanyconservative viewer in this age of ‘Ben 10.’ As a story, I actually enjoyed the character of Iris, the lonely, naughty, dramatic and explosive beautiful one. In the story, her presence is recognised openly by her husband, the somewhat un conscious and sick Mpiyakhe who is lying in his hospital bed after escaping from his mkhovu ordeal. Curiously, Mpiyakhe is less responsivetohisothertwopiusandtypical
traditional women who share Mpiyakhe with Iris in a polygamous marriage situa tion when they come to see him in hospital on a separate encounter. Iknowthatwehavenothadanicestory like Isibaya in a long time on national tele vision, but the presence of Mzansi Magic, anMNetchannel,promisestofeeduswith offerings that are not only South African, but truly entertaining. Like etv’s ekasi sto ries, Mzansi Magic is continually flooding our television screens with short stories which we truly identify with and like, and manyofthemaremadebypeopleweactu ally brush shoulders with. My partner and I enjoyed the creative shooting and exotic scenes of Msinga. We recognised and identified with the context which glorifies our province of KwaZulu Natal as a tourism destination. Here is to the end of Isibaya part one and its intriguing celebration of rich blacks whorosethroughthetaxiindustryinwhich modern values collide with traditional val ues in a superb story that mirrors the life we know and experience in ways that we cannot deny.

HE negative effects of apartheid on the minds of Black people will be felt for many years to come. The laws of the country may have changed, but the minds are still chained by the past. Fear is dominating the lives of the majority of our people. Fear to change and fear to be different is holding the country hostage. Football cannot continue doing things the same way and expect different results. We live in a society that is stuck in the past. Independent and selfreliant individuals become enemies of people. We are a nation that hates progress. Thesecondandthirddivisions are not youth leagues. It is wrong to put restrictions on the ages of players in these leagues. A club like Central Brothers, for instance,wouldlovetobepromoted to the PSL in future. How is it possible with rules that do not apply to every club in the country? Please, let us not confuse amateur football with youth development. It is also not fair on older players who are still keen on playing competitive football. It is these cosmetic changes that are delaying progress. We need to learn that nothing is free in this world. Progress in any field is not dependant on money. One does not need to be rich to excel in football. You need a ball and a bit of space to improve your technical skills. Poorer countries will be fighting to win the World Cup in Brazil in June. Knowledge and high work ethic is more important than money. Anyone can have lots of money but very few can have wisdom. It is easy to steal money for instance while it is impossible to steal wisdom. Footballisnotgoingtogrow and improve if the mind sets do not change. How many coaches have been trained by Safa over
the past twenty years? It is sad that the majority are still waiting for someone to employ them. We have too many certificated people who do not train or coach anyone. We are a nation that enjoys collecting certificates. People find it very difficult to volunteer their services. We are failing to understand that South Africa is a third world country. The majority of people live under despicable conditions. We play football on very bad fields. It is not true that we have better football facilities. I see this every weekend in SAB matches. If the elite district league plays under such conditions, it is difficult to imagine the conditions at lower levels. A lot of opinions have been made about last week’s trashing by Brazil. The reality is that good footballers do not grow on trees. A country that neglects its youth will never dominate world football. We must stop being good in suggestions and start doing the work. We need to equip ourselves with knowledge and start giving our children good football education. It is also important that football puts qualified people in positionsofauthority.Thisbusinessof putting the wrong candidates or friends in key football positions is killing the sport. Lastly, it is worth repeating that the first teacher of football is a mother and father. Too many South Africans are abdicating their responsibilities. You even seethisineducationwhereachild travelsmanykilometreswhilethe father is a principal in the local school. Safa has come up with a Level D course which is suitable for parent coaches. I would recommend that young fathers and mothers attend this course in order to help your children. People must start talking responsibilities otherwise fifty years from now Brazil will be beating us 10-0. Unzima lo mthwalo!

I stay in Cinderella Park in Eastwood. ER: Did you play any sport during your school days? EH:Yes,Iwasanactivefootballerandcricketer. I also participated in other codes of sport such as basketball, volleyball and athletics. ER:Arethereanyawardsyoureceivedduring your active days? EH:Yes, I received Natal and Northern Natal colours for cricket. I also represented the old Maritzburg FA in soccer and cricket for the Maritzburg Cricket Association. ER: Tell me a bit about your career at club level. EH: I played or joined one of the oldest and popular local clubs in MFA - Young Natalians - in 1986 and played both football and cricket for the club. ER: Besides playing, you also became a well known official in local circles? EH:Yes,Ibecamearefereeandalsoactively involved with the administration, mainly working as a records cleck. ER: I personally know that you became involved in administration when you were still very young, where did the influence come from? EH: I was influenced by some of our local and country’s top sport administrators such as Babs Sithapersad, Ismail Bhamjee, Poobie Govindasamy,S olly Moosa, Raj Seeparsad, Lenny Munro, Dino Singh, Bryan Rupram and the late Mr Rajen Jugmohan. Their guidance and teachings have brought me to the level I have achieved thus far. I am grateful to each one of them.
ER: What are you currently doing at Saifa? EH: Officially, I am called the secretary but I also work as chief operations officer. My current tasks is to run a business with good governance, transparency and equality.

All this, and I still have to do the general office tasks. ER: What are the main challenges in your job? EH: No job goes without challenges, with some being minor and others that are more challenging that require the support and guidance of all role players. As a team, no challenge is too big to handle. Our major challenge is finance and we are currentlyseekingcorporatestojoinusasourpartners in promoting Futsal from grassroots to the professional level. ER: For the people not familiar with indoorFutsal, how do you explain it and where do you see it in future. EH: Indoor/ Futsal is a style of football that will allow our football masses to develop skills at an early age. It will help the country to showcase its talent at the various age group competitions that Safa and Saifa have initiated. This type of football is likely to produce better skilled players for all our national teams. I also strongly believe if we are able to secure sponsorship, we could be running our leagues similar to the PSL in the near future. ER: Are you convinced that this type of footeball is now becoming popular around the country? EH: Off course, but we still need more people to join hands like schools and tertiary institutions. We also need ladies teams to come on board and also our regional leagues need to be stronger in all Safa 52 regions. *Saifa/Futsal National League: The local derby between Young Natalians and Maritzburg Spurs will take place Friday (March 14), 7 pm at Carter High School. –Jerry Barnes

Acid test for ‘VV’
>> Pirates new coach Vladimir“VV” Vermezovic faces his former employers in one of the worlds biggest derbies on Saturday
“Our fans are strongly advised to come in their big numbers and get to the stadium early. We are saying good display of soccer will be dished out by the two best sides in SA. “Maybe I should also remind the country that Pirates are the former treble champions. We are also the very first SA team to win the Caf Champions League and also made it to the finals of the same competition again last season,”said Modisane. Amakhosi’s communications manager, Vina Maphosa, feels his team is on a roll and their opponents may find it difficult to deal with them. “We kicked off our Caf campaign on a positive note. At home or in the PSL we are still leading the pack and are the reigning champions.” he said. Chiefs die-hard and long time follower Sadaam Maake says VV will receive the best present from Amakhosi which will be a “welcom back to the real world which is SA.”
