MUNICIPALITY to replace faulty water meters
>> Shortage of metres by the supplier has delayed the process
N a bid to resolve the issue of inflated water bills, which is affecting city residents particularly those in the Greater Edendale area, the municipality aims to have read 100% of meters by the end of this month. Speaking at a Msunduzi Municipality Exco meeting, municipal manager Mxolisi Nkosi said that the aim is to fix all faulty meters so that they can do correct readings regularly. The process was targeted for completion last month, but was delayed due to the shortage of meters by the supplier. “Among the challenges that we face is that sometimes, we cannot locate the addresses written on our lists. Sometimes the readings are not done due to extreme weather conditions, and meter readers need to be provided with the appropriate uniform for even when it is raining.” Chief financial officer Nelisiwe Ngcobo said that while they have already read about 80% of water meters, there are still challenges and as a result, they have appointed a task team to deal with those issues. “Task team members meet on a weekly basis to talk about issues relating to buried meters, those that cannot be located etc, or properties where readers cannot gain access because they are locked”, she said.

NOKULUNGA NGOBESE >>firstname.lastname@example.org IN just a month since schools have reopened in the prov ince, violence seems to be on the rife with separate stab bing incidents at Mehlokazulu and KwaMncane high schools recently. At Mehlokazulu, it is alleged that a group of pupils who had been involved in faction fighting in their areas took the fight school. SAPS spokesperson, Captain Thu lani Zwane, said that a 19 yearold victim was stabbed on the school premises during lunch break. “Two suspects, Mthobisi Shezi (18) and Sbongiseni Shezi (23), appeared in the magis trate’s court last Monday . The situation is under police control at this stage,” he said. In a similar incident, a 24 year old man was stabbed in his back on Wednesday, fol lowing an argument between two pupils from KwaMncane High School. A pupil, who did not want to be identified, said the two pupils had been drinking, and started fighting. During school break, the one went out and came back with knives that had been hidden in the bush es. Several boys who were not students also showed up, and lured a group of pupils outside the school premises, where one of them was stabbed. Zwane said their de tectives are investigating the incident. He said a case of assault had been opened and that a 24yearold man was stabbed in his back by the suspect. “The incident took place outside the school premises and the victim is not a pupil. No arrests have been made,” he said. KwaZulu Natal Department of Educa tion spokesperson Sihle Mlot shwa said “This is a societal problem which extends to our schools.We ask societies to ensure that our communities are safe and free from vio lence. If we can tackle this is sue at a societal level, we will not find this problem at our schools. We urge all stake holders including parents, to work with the department in curbing these incidents.”

Sphephelo Khuzwayo holds her statement of results that have errors.
YOUNG Imbali woman’s dream to study further has been scuppered by her difficulty in getting a matric certificate which she sat for in 2010. Sphephelo Khuzwayo (22) said the Department of Education has failed to give out her matric certificate. She told Echo that she completed her matric at Sukuma Comprehensive School in 2010. The only thing she has is a statement of results with the wrong information, she said. “Icollectedthestatementofresults in January 2011 from the school. When I got the results, I noticed that my mathematics results were missing. I went back to the school but they failed to fix the problem. “I was told that there were no results, or any information, available from the system. I even went to Durban for an inquiry and the only thing they gave me was a print out of the same results with the same error. I have made many trips to Durban hoping that the matter would be sorted out, but nothing is happening,” said Khuzwayo, adding that her last visit to the department was last month. “The last time I went there, I was advised to start over from Grade 10. I can’t go back to Grade 10. I want to study journalism and be a political reporter but I cannot do that. I want my certificate so that I can
move on with my life,” she said. KZN Education spokesperson Sihle Mlotshwa said they have forwarded the inquiry to the exam section to check where the problem is. “As for her having to go back to Grade 10, it is unheard of and it is not how we do things in this department,” said Mlotshwa.

CANNOT say I enjoyed my childhood very much, and understandably so. It was not nice to attend a normal school where there were no disabled children. But my mother treated me as a normal person, even if she was very sensitive to my special needs. Yet the reality of my disability did not go away. When other children ran to and fro, chasing the soccer ball, or playing hide and seek, I was not a part of that. My special shoes did not allow me to be free to do so. At least when I was at home, I could play soccer, swim in the river, play toys and ride bicycles with other children because I did not have to wear those heavy shoes that supported me to walk, without tiring and falling down at short notice. But even with community soccer teams, I had to be a goal keeper. That is, if we were having friendly matches. I would often be thrown out of the game if there was a money bat involved. Our opponents knew that my left leg was weak, so they would score on the left. Hence, I spent a great deal of time as a spectator of many a community soccer match rather than being a participant. It was often alienating and lonely. But my friends liked me because I was enthusiastic company, and I did not feel like I was not a part

Is it healthy to take a disabled child to a normal school? >> With the surgical shoe on, and the steel caliper, my play was limited of them. The problem was at school. I did not feel that it was nice for my friends to be around me when I was at school because I could not play at all. And it was compulsory that I wore those shoes. I actually had a nursing matron patrolling me at home to check if I had the shoes on at all times. She felt like a representative from Correctional Services checking on a prisoner who is still serving time at home. I was her polio prisoner. I would often spot her as she entered the gate into our yard and I would disappear as quickly as I could because I never wore my surgical
shoes at home. Sometimes she would seemerunningawayinordertoavoid her, but sometimes she did not. And at other times I would be lucky that she did not find me at home when she came to supervise me. If she found me, I would feel like she had come to take me to Edendale Hospital, to spend more years under guard. She did not forget to remind me that I would be kept in hospital permanently if I did not wear my caliperandsurgicalboots.Thepossibility of spending more years than the oneand-half-year period I had to endure in hospital was not welcome news. It was a nightmare having her in my life. She came once in a while, but
you never knew when she would come to check on me at home. I can’t even remember her name. But she was a mature, beautiful black woman who always wore her black wig that made her look like an Indian lady. She could have been in her early 30s - the age of my father’s younger sisters at the time. As I said, I could not play nicely with my friends when I had my surgical shoes and the steel caliper on. It was only in later years at Amakholwa High that I was able to play something at school – my very favourite sporting activity, table-tennis, which my older brothers also liked playing at the Edendale YMCA community center

and at school. I was definitely different to other children but my mother insisted that Iattendanormalschoolandnotaspecialschoolforpeoplelikeme.Besides, there are a few special schools for disabled people because we are a minority in society. My mother also felt that attending a normal school would make me adapt easily to mainstream society. Shewantedmetofeelthesameasothers. She encouraged me to see myself as no different to others. But sometimes it felt like she was patronising me – just making me feel good about myself because I was her child. I am not always sure if it is healthy to take a disabled child to a normal school. But thanks to my mother’s support, I have been a team leader of many so-called normal people since my teenage years, when she forced me to head a musical group from her small storeroom. I was to later find myself teaming up with friends to head a community drama group. I have since had privileges of supervising so-called normal people in various professional environments with much ease. Hence, I hug my mother with a tearful heart as I write these words. I hope every parent who has a disable,d or so-called “abnormal”, child willtakecounsel.Itmaynothavebeen easy. Like I said, when I was in lower grades there was no playing during school breaks for me, and I had to watch other children racing around like flies in a room full of slaughtered animal carcasses. But I was being trained to defy the odds *This is an adapted extract from Simphiwe Mkhize’s unpublished memoirs called Anger Mismanaged
