HEownerofLaudervilletaverninCaluza has bowed to community pressure by shutting down the watering hole which is said to be noisy and a scene of crime. For quite sometime residents complained about the unbearable noise coming out of the tavern, saying it disturbed them in their sleep at night. Eventually the local community policing forum (CPF) and the community gave the tavern owner a 30 day ultimatum and he complied. Echo learnt that the tavern had been given the name “Marikana” due to alleged death incidents that had occurred there. CPF chairperson Sboniso Shangase said, due to the complaints from the residents, they hadtotakethematterseriously.Hesaidthetavern had caused an inconvenience on the road in the area. “People were finding it difficult to use the road especially in the morning. There would be cars blocking the way in the morning and broken bottles scattered all over the road. “Another issue was that the tavern closed late and the banging sound of music was unbearabletoresidents.Asacommitteewespoke

with the owner and asked him to close earlier and to control the music. “We convened a meeting with all the tavern owners in the area. We informed them about the community’s concerns. We told them to comply with their liquor licenses in terms of the operating hours. “Lauderville owner failed to do so. He said hislicenseallowedhimtooperateupuntil4am. We asked him to close at least at 2 am like the others but he didn’t do that. “The community decided that we give him a 30 days’ notice to close it down. It was not a safeplace,peoplewerenotcheckediftheywere armed or not. All of the windows are cracked not even one window is in a good state. “The fact that there would be people coming from different areas of Edendale was worrying,” he said. The owner of the tavern who asked not to be named denied the alleged deaths. He said he knew of one death incident that happened outside his tavern. “There was one person that was found dead and it did not happen at the tavern. No one ever died inside the tavern premises. I have decided that I close the tavern because I was not feeling safe. I am not operating there any more, I have closed down permanently,” said the owner.

TB patients want more doctors

CARCITY of doctors, wrong diagnoses and fears that patients might be defaulting are the main concerns for the Tuberculosis (TB) patients in Doris Goodwin clinic near Edendale Hospital. According to a patient, who cannot be named, the doctor only shows up in the wards once or twice in a week. The same patient told Echo that another concerning matter is the results of tests conducted on them. “After we have done some tests no one bothers to tell us the results. The patient’s sister said one of her sister’s tests that she did were confirmed as wrong at Edendale hospital. “They had taken some blood tests from her. The nurse that was helping in the ward had no clue of what the results were. According my sister, she told her that she would guess them. She told her that her liver was damaged. “My sister went to Edendale hospital and they told her that was untrue. That is very dangerous, those patients need intensive care and they deserve to be checked up everyday. “The hospital has only one doctor who comes in once or twice a week. We end up not knowing if they are getting any better or worse in there,” said the patient’s sister. The patient said they are worried that they might default. “Most of us are still using the same medication which leaves us with many questions. We

ED I F I S S A L C ERS S I T R E V D A PLEASE NOTE!!!

are asking ourselves if we are getting better or worse. “Using the same medication for moths clearly reveals that one is not getting any better. Thestagesarenotthesameandthemedication isdifferent.Mostofushavebeenusingthesame medication since we got in here,” said the patient. Echo has found out that the doctor come to the wards on Monday and Friday. One of patients confirmed that last week the doctor came on Monday but not to all the wards and on Friday he did not come in at all. Ithasbeenallegedsomeofthepatientshave defaulted. Umgungundlovu health district communications officer Msawenkosi Mncwabe said the hospital has two doctors that cater for the patients. He said one doctor caters for the multi-drug resistance(MDR)Tuberculosispatientsandthe other one is for anti-retroviral (ARV) initiation. “The doctor visits the wards twice a week which is Monday and Friday,” he said. Mncwabe said the doctor starts working from 7 am to 4 pm every Monday and Friday. “According to our records none of our patients have died as a result of defaulting. Ninety percent of our patients die from renal failure not from defaulting,” he said.

ITYmayorChrisNdlelahasissuedastern warning to schools with outstanding balances on municipal services to either make arrangements to pay, or face the risk of having their services disconnected. These services include water, sewerage and refuse removals. Addressing teachers from Edendale circuit during World Teachers’ Day celebrations at the City Royal hotel last week, Ndlela said: “While we acknowledge the good efforts of ensuring teaching and learning despite unconducive work environments, we have a challenge of schools who are owing so much for municipal services. “Schools have budgets known as “Norms and Standards” allocated for such services, but somedonotpay.Someschoolscomplainedthat they were overcharged for water services meanwhile there were faulty meters. “Upon our investigations, we discovered that only two schools had a problem out of a number of schools that had complained. There

are so many parameters that contribute to corruption. “Everyone must comply with the law, and if they do not pay, we will disconnect services”. A teacher by training himself, Ndlela further said that the municipality has introduced an indigent policy for those who cannot afford paying for its services, such as pensioners and child-headed households. Ndlela said while teachers are doing a sterling job, there is still much to be done towards improving the matric pass rate. Municipal spokesperson Brian Zuma said: “The municipality has an obligation to collect revenue for the services it provides. All recipients of such services, including schools, hospitals and government departments have to pay for their provision. “Some institutions and departments have come forward to make arrangements to pay. Those who have not, are running a risk of having their services discontinued”. Asked about the number of schools and money owed, he just said the mayor’s comment must be seen in the broader context.

Bring back religious studies to the school

SIMPHIWE MKHIZE

AM happy that in the new South Africa all religions are respected and they are accorded the same sort of status. But unfortunately for us, that also includes Satanism. Obviously,ifIwasapoliticalleader of note I would have opposed any inclination to legitimise Satanism because I think it is destructive, counterproductive and against nation-building. If rational thinking is anything to go by, I see no practical value in drinking human blood and the promotion of drug addiction, alcoholism, prostitution and all the anomies that go hand in hand with Satanism. But that’s not what I am talking about right now. Today I wish to say that I find it unfair and inconsequential that our children do not have reli-

I can’t say I enjoyed the way my teachersusedtodrumversesfromthe Christian Bible and expect us to remember and recite these by heart. Thatwasquitetorturousandareason to hate the Bible. But I respect the fact that, in the olden days, had it not been for Christianity, many people would not have had a formal education or be able to read and write. I do associate Christianity with enlightenment, and it came with a higher level of organisation in society, even though I do not consider capitalism to be in line with Christian values like sharing. It does not impress me that in a capitalist set-up we throw oranges away in the sea instead of distributing them amongst the poor just so that we can keep the prices stable as they are regulated by the law of de-

gious studies as an essential part of the school curriculum. It nevertheless pleases me to note that our children still pray to God before the classes start. It would not be very surprising if that would be stopped too because in a democratic South Africa the constitution protects and promotes all religions. But I hope the fact that the majority of people in this country are Christians will continue to protect its right to be a dominant way of life or thinking. What I am trying to say is that as far as I am concerned it is not logical that a religion that was used, albeit negatively, to bring modernity to the formerly colonised people should now be treated equal to others because, (I may be wrong), my common sense observation tells me it is not!

mand and supply. Price regulation or no price regulation, I personally do not have respect for dumping healthy food for fish in the water as they may not even eat the oranges, when there are so many poor mouths to feed. But that’s not what I am talking about though.Whatdrivesmetowritetoday is the sheer concern that my daughter is not getting exposed to the Word of God in class. It does not impress me that the only time she encountered the Word of God outside of the formal church building was when she attended a church children’s camp. I am grateful to those children’s camp Christian organizers because today my daughter can say a meaningful prayer and judging from what I have heard her say in her own words when she prays at home, I am convinced

that she fully understands that God is our Heavenly Father who sees all of us – children and grown up people alike – as His own children or creatures. But I would have loved her to learn these things at school like we did. As I said earlier, maybe not in the same militaristic drill that we were subjected to as children, but do it nevertheless. Maybe bringing back religious studies as a compulsory subject at school could even help reduce incidents of demonic attacks that disturb learning if we go back to the good old practice of making children learn about God and recite the name of the Lord. I think this is good for them in preparation for adult life when they will recognise the glory of God as a creator, architect and timeless interpenetrating reality that binds all.

The day which is celebrated throughout the world on 5 October was started in 1994, in a bid to ac­ knowledge the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development. Education district manager Jennifer Baiju said: "We want to recognise the vital role played by teachers in this district, with some of them managing dys­ functional schools".

ANC optimistic about Nkonyeni’s appointment >> They thinik she was the best choice for the job NOKULUNGA NGOBESE

HILE the ANC is optimistic about the announcement of the new KZN Education MEC Peggy Nkonyeni by new provincial premier Senzo Mchunu, her appointment has cast doubts among opposition parties. Opposition say they believe that she has to double her efforts in order to regain their confidence. Nkonyeni’s appointment on Monday follows the movement of Senzo Mchunu into Premiership. Prior to her position as provincial legislature speaker, Nkonyeni was the MEC for Health in the province. Speaking about her appointment, DA KZN spokesperson for Education, Tom Stokes said: “The appointment of Nkonyeni as KwaZulu-Natal’snextEducationMECisonedriven by polit-

ical imperatives rather than education imperatives. “They have appointed an individual who mal-administered the province’s health portfolio during her tenure as MEC. She was also linked to the multi-million rand “Amigos” fraud and racketeering scandal”. IFP’s spokesperson

for Education Mntomuhle Khawula said: “Nkonyeni comes with her baggage, as MEC for Health four years ago, she presided over a department that was fraught with corruption and poor management. “We hope that when she assumes office, she will close the bad chapter ofpoormanagementandstartonnew slate. We cannot prejudge her, but time will tell if she was the ideal choice for this very important portfolio”. Congratulating Nkonyeni, ANC provincial secretary, Sihle Zikalala said: “We welcome her appointment and we have no doubts that she will perform her tasks conscientiously. We are confident that she will be able to carry on with the good work that the department has done”. South African Democratic Teachers’ Union KZN secretary Mbuyiseni Mathonsi has welcomed Nkonyeni, but has said she came at a time when their patience as a union was

running out. National Teachers’ Union deputy president Allen Thompson also has welcomed the appointment and said hedidnotthinkthattherewasabetter candidate. Thompson said some of the chal-

lenges that Nkonyeni would face included the closing down of schools, non-payment of a rural allowance for teachers,andcorruptionintheschool feeding system. “We’re supporting her, but if she wants to make things worse than they are now, we’re prepared to challenge her,” he added. Education HOD Dr Nkosinathi Sishi said that with the new appointment, they are confident that they are going to continue moving up in as far as Annual National Assesments (ANA) National Senior Certificates examinations (NSC) and other programmes of the department are concerned.

It’s never too late to study, so be prepared

>> Matrics – How to still do well if you deserve an A for procrastination

M

ANY thousands of matrics are starting to wakeuptotherealisationthattroublelooms large on the horizon because they have not sufficiently prepared for their final exams. But although the temptation might be to just throw in the towel, there is still hope for achieving results you can be proud of, an educational expert says. “Not everyone will approach their exam knowing that they have done all they could to prepare over the past 12 years, and this gives rise to tremendous anxiety,” says Dr Felicity Coughlan, Director of the In­ dependent Institute of Education. But by changing your mindset and taking five impor­ tant steps, your marks could still qualify you for entry into a stimulating field and exciting career, she says. Students who have procrastinated until the bitter end (and many highly intelligent young people fall into this category) should immediately do the fol­ lowing (now, not tomorrow): 1)Breathe, accept your situation, and resolve to do all you can to rectify it As with many problems, the first step required for change is acknowledgment of the problem. “Be hon­ est with yourself and face the fact that you have not yet done enough to do as well as you would have liked. Then, resolve to throw all you have into making these last few weeks count. That means being ruth­ less about distractions, and studying like you have never studied before. It is only a few weeks from your life,buttheyareafewweeksthatcouldmakeaworld of difference to your future prospects.” 2)Assess the damage Look at all your subjects and at all the materials you need to study. Again, be ruthless. Make sure that you have not forgotten anything. Once you know what you have to work with and what you need to catch up on, move on to step 3 (and don’t feel over­ whelmed). 3)Take time to draw up a study roster Forget “rest time”, party time and staying up to date with “important” TV shows, Candy Crush or your friends and frenemies’ facebook updates. All your time should now be focused on your final exam, and only your final exam. “There will be plenty of time to play once you’re done – and then you’ll deserve it,” says Coughlan. “Allow yourself to draw up a detailed study roster which includes time for a second round of revision, if possible. But don’t spend all your time planning either! It’s time to get to work.”

Some of the people who were left unattended outside the department of labour offices, some of them decided to leave after standing for hours without any help

NOKULUNGA NGOBESE

PEOPLE had to go back homes without getting help at the Department of Labour office in Piermaritzburg on Tuesday after workers downed tools complaining about maladministration. Agroupofpeoplewhowerestandingoutside these offices told Echo that they had arrived there very early, hoping that they would be finishedbytheendoftheday,butendedupwasting their time. “We waited for hours and the sad part is that no one from inside was prepared to give us a proper explanation. Some of us even borrowed money to come here, and it means we have to

borrow again,” said one of the people who did not want to be identified. According to some of the workers, last month they submitted a memorandum to the provincial office, demanding that an independent investigation officer to be secured to probe deputy director Sindi Zungu on allegations of maladministration, cronyism, and worker intimidation. Zungu is further accused of dictatorship and wanting to disband the employees’ trade union. “We were told that only the provincial manager has the powers to intervene, and up until nownothinghasbeendoneasshestillcontinues to work. We will be on a ‘go slow’ strike until our needs are met”, they said.

4) Now stick to it Once you’ve drawn up your study roster, you may re­ alise that things are not as bleak as you imagined them to be, and that you still have adequate time left to study. But don’t be drawn into procrastination again, Coughlan warns. “Your roster is your lifeline now, and you should cling to it and make it work for you.” 5)For best results, study using the PROVE method >>Practise by writing past papers or example ques­ tions rather than just reading >>Refresh by making sure you are eating, sleeping and exercising enough (but beware of using these activities to procrastinate!) >>Organise yourself, your time and your work. Hav­ ing a neat working environment and a clear plan for what you need to do and study every day, as well as having the relevant materials sorted and on hand, will go a long way to reduce anxiety and optimise your learning. >>Visualise by using colour and mind maps and oth­ er strategies rather than just words, so that you can use more of your brain, and >>Explain by answering questions or telling friends or relatives about your work. It is not until you have tried to explain what you know that you can assess if you know enough to answer the questions. “It is possible that you have neglected your work to such a degree that you could potentially no longer qualify for studying in the field that you wanted,” says Coughlan. “However, every effort you make now will ensure your chances are improved, and that you could enter another field that could prove equally if not more satisfying, or that you could work your way back into your first choice of course by, for instance, first study­ ing for a qualification that will give you entry into your field of dreams. “If you put in the work now you may very well find that you still have fantastic options available to you when your results arrive, and you’ll be in a position to make decisions about your future knowing that when it count­ ed, you put in your very best effort and it paid off. And even if it is too late to make your Plan A work immedi­ ately, you still have enough time to give Plan B your best shot.”–Sup­ plied.

Police minister Nathi Mthethwa addressing the Maqonqo community on Tuesday.

NOMPENDULO NGUBANE

>>nompendulo.ngubane@myecho.co.za POLICE minister Nathi Mthethwa gave a three months ultimatum to the provincial commissioner Lieutenant Mamunye Ngobeni and the Pietermaritzburg cluster commander Parbathie Maharaj to sort out the problems that are facing the Maqonqo community. Mthethwa was addressing the Maqonqo community on Tuesday at Emboyi Sportsgrounds during his SAPS Imbizo crime awareness gathering that is ongoing. UMkhambathini mayor Thobekile Maphumulo said Mthethwa’s visit was in response to a call that was made by President Jacob Zuma that they should go out to the people and hear what services the need and the challenges they face within their communities. In Maqongqo the community has highlighted the problem of crime which is believed to be caused by the presence of many taverns in the area. In his address Mthethwa assured the community that their concerns will be prioritised. “The issue of taverns is a huge concern. We havedecidedthatwewillspeaktothem[tavern owners] and find out if these taverns are registeredornot.Wehaveaproblemwiththosethat are registered, we are not sure if their operating hours are guided by their liquor licenses. “We have incidents of rape caused by the whoonga drug. There are incidents of raping of the elderly, women and children. The shooting and the killings in the area will be looked at as I have tasked the provincial commissioner to do so. “It’s scary how these things are happening and we ask ourselves how exactly they happen. This means that we have to do something about them. We need the community to work together with the police in fighting these incidents,” said Mthethwa. Complaints about inept police in the area were also raised by the dismayed community members. Maqongqo’s Stingini resident Njabulo Sokhela said there is a lack of police visibility in the area. “When police are called to the crime scenes they take forever to come and attend to the crime reported,” he said. Ngobeni said they will do everything in their power to sort out the problems in Bishopstowe police station.

PSL coaches walkout still a mystery

S it that crazy time of South African soccer again or the recent coaching victims were pushed? The usual and the familiar merrygo-round of the coaches was witnessedagain this week in the PSL. The former Mphophomeni Secondary School teacher, ex- Maritzburg’s Moja United coach (Safa 2nd Division) and the Lamontville Golden Arrows, Brilliant Manqoba Mngqithi left Abafana Bes’thende in a huff after his team displayed a classy performance against Bidvest Wits when they won 3-2 last Friday

night. Abafana Bes’thende came from behind twice to beat the Milparkbased outfit during the Telkom Knockout Cup. Then why jump ship so early in the season after such a brilliant performance? This is the thorny question that has been asked endlessly in the local football circles. Also on Sunday morning, Bloemfontein Celtic head coach and the Wentworth-born Clinton Larsen resigned from his three year position after the 4-0 drubbing by

byMamelodiSundownsinthesame competition. Mngqithi this week was only prepared to say: “I believe it was the right time to leave”. Mngqithi also refused to shed light on the allegations currently doing the rounds that he was asked by club’s boss, Mato Madlala to leave after a string of poor results. It is also believed in some quarters that Mngqithi was advised or pressurised to resign for insisting on fielding “unknown or up and coming players” over the experi-

enced ones. The way he has been quickly replaced by Mark Harrison from Chippa United has also raised eyebrows. It has been said the swiftness of the move suggests the Durban club had already had contingency plans before Mngqithi’s walkout. Celtic’s management claim Larsen’s exit was unexpected and caught them off-guard. “We were not expecting it at all. We honestly thought everything was rosy and smooth,” said

co.

Celtic’s CEO Khumbulani Khon-

Larsen’s assistant Boebie Solomons already has already taken over as a caretaker coach. Khonco shot down suggestions that there was tension between the former Santos mentor and Larsen. “Larsen has been with the club for three years and Solomons came in as his assistant a while ago and they always worked as brothers and good partners.”–Jerry Barnes.

Free computer centre for MHA tenants

NOKULUNGA NGOBESE ACACIA park tenants will now have free computer services after the Msunduzi Housing Association (MHA) officially opened their computer centre on Satur­ day. MHA media liaison officer Khosi Xaso said that the centre with 12 computers will be used by children for their homework and school projects, as well as adults. “We heard from tenants that after school, children were getting into mischief as they had nothing to do. We developed a vision for a PC centre, with the latest computers

She further said that they are also hoping to offer computer training courses to those tenants who need them. The long term goal is to extend the programme to other tenantsunderMHA.

Councillor Adams’ legacy lives on

E

astwood hall will now be officially known as Wally Adams community hall. This decision was taken during the late former Ward 34 councillor Wally Adams lecture at the hall on Friday. It was after former Msunduzi Municipality’s Ward 32 councillor Francis Grantham suggested that Adams should be honoured for his outstanding and sterling work when he was still councillor. He praised the late ANC-elected councillor for fighting for unity, democracy and openness. “Wally was not just a pride of this neighbourhood or a resident, but he openly struggled for everybody and united different racial groups.” Delivering a key note address, theformerdeputymayorandthecoordinator of the newly launched ICW (Indians, Coloureds and Whites election campaign) under ANC,MervinDirkssaiditwasdisappointing that most coloured people were always claiming to be overlooked and kept at a distance when elections were nearby. Dirks said the issue of feeling marginalised after 20 years of de-

mocracy was just to unbelievable to be true. He pleaded with the audience to properly look at the statistics and do the research to see that coloured people were not left out of the ANC government at all levels. He urged Eastwood residents to learn from Adams’ life and keep his legacy proud and alive. Dirks said Adams was a hardest-working councillor ever produced by the local municipality. He said the late councillor was not interested in enriching himself but fought to improve a relationship between white officials and other race groups in the municipality. “He was able to bring us together when the atmosphere was tense in the municipality between the whites and non-whites. “Wally was never interested in tenders or making himself rich, but fought for the needs of everybody in his community, irrespective of colour, race or culture. He knew and made it clear that everybody was needed on board in order to make a successful and democratic community. “Adams knew that Coloureds

and Africans relied on each other to achieve unity and better life. Coloured people must never make a grave mistake by separating themselves from the majority race group. “The fact is so-called coloureds are not left out of the government. We should never exclude ourselves because we are all South Africans,” emphasised Dirks. Mayor Chris Ndlela said Eastwood residents said Adams was not only the hardest-working but also a disciplined and compliant care of the ANC. “Corruption, losing sight of the peopleyouareserving,ill-discipline and forgetting the interest of your community is like cancer in most of public servants.” The wife of Adams whose is Ward 34 committee chairperson, Ivy Terry-Adams, said she was humbled by the speakers and the hardworkdisplayedbyherlatehusband. She urged the other ‘comrades’ to learn from his work and keep Adams’ legacy “proud and alive”. –Jerry Barnes.

Speaking to Echo, a jubilant Majola said that she is grateful for what

Ithemba Project and the Epworth pupils have done for her. “I have no words or ways of expressing my appreciation for the gift they have given me. It has been my dream to further my studies as a teacher and they have made my dream a reality,” she said. The money was raised through a 100km relay from Mooi River to Pietermaritzburg last month. Unakekelo

crèche is supported by Ithemba Projects which is a non-profit organisation that works with the Mpumuza community. Ithemba Projects has been working with the school on this initiative for the past 15 years. The Epworth runners’ goal was to help Majola, reach her dream of qualifying as an Early Childhood Development (ECD) educator.

These funds will go towards Majola’s accredited ECD course as well as cover her transport costs. According to Epworth school head of marketing Vicky Crookes,the initiative started in 1998andthegrade7endurancechallenge has raised R300 000 for charity over the past 15 years. “For the past number of years, this Epworth initiative has supported Ithemba Projects which supports the

But according to our sources at Pirates, Le­

Everyone played football in those years. I was also happy to see Mahewu Mlaba of Siyamu United Brothers. He was one of the best left footed players of his generation. It was a pity that his younger brother, Roy did not live longer. He was also a very talented footballer. It is just a pity that Black people do not record their history. I hope that one day we take responsibility of recording history of football in Pietermaritzburg. Football was not only played in the Black areas but there were clubs and personalities in Indian and White areas. Who can forget the great Rama Moodley and Bigs Chetty. Unzima lo mthwalo!
