>> Family lucky as taxi crash kills conductor NOKULUNGA NGOBESE

A

N Imbali Unit 2 family whose house was crashed into by a taxi last week, believesthatspeedingtaxisalongthe Willowfountain road are behind the spate of accidents on the same spot. The house which is at MadakaleniareajustoppositeNansindlela Primary School has been crashed into by two cars, in just a year. According to residents, there has been a spate of accidents, to the extent that pedestrians are even scared to walk on that side. The latest incident was last week when a taxi travelling from Unit 13 crashed into the house, killing a taxi door operator and injuring two pedestrians. The taxi is alleged to be owned by ward 15 councillor Garnet Mlete. Phindile Dlamini whose family has another house in the area said that part of their two roomed house was damaged, destroying a

tenant’s belongings. Speaking about the incident, although she was not at home when it happened, she said that a taxi was travelling from Unit 13 with only three passengers, and the driver had tried to avoid an oncoming truck when he crashed into house. “When the taxi tried to avoid colliding with a truck, there was a woman who was walking along the road to fetch water from a water tanker. The driver first crashed into her before ploughing into another pedestrian and into the house. One passenger died. Taxis are always speeding along this road and there are no speed humps”. Ward councillor Mlete denied claimsthatthiswashistaxi,saying that he does not own one. “There is a taxi rank nearby and I believe the accidents are caused by the way in which taxis park. However, I will convene a meeting with the taxi association in the area to find a solution,” he said.

UPaulos Shezi (90) wasendaweni yaseSigodini uthi ukuba nendlu enophahla olungavuzi kungaba isipho kuye.

THE problems surrounding Esigodini clinic keep piling up as now theft of property has become another one on top of poor service delivery. The tap that was used by patientsattheclinichasbeenstolentogether with the pipe connected it. According to the chairperson of the community policing forum (CPF), Mduduzi Majola the people who broke into the clinic damaged the main gate in order to get in. He said the way the clinic is operating is the cause people are breaking in and damaging property. He said people think it has been unused and deserted. “We are still fighting aboutthesameissuesthatweraised in January. The clinic is filthy and it tops the list of poor service delivery. As residents of this area we feel that we are being deserted by the Department of Health. “That is the same reason people arebreakinginandstealingproperty. We are still experiencing the shortage of staff that comes to work whenitsuitsthem.Asthecommunity we don’t know the operating hours of the clinic. “Sometimes they start working at 11 am or 12 pm. There are people who wake up so early in the morning and only to find out that sometimes they go home unattended,” he said.

One resident said they are pleading with department to bring them someone who can work with the committee in the area. There are always delays, especially on Monday. “We are not different from people who are without a clinic. The clinic doesn’t have a security guard and that leads to the break-ins and stealing that is happening. “Sometimes they don’t open; they would say they have lost the keys. That is total negligence and it shows that theydon’tcareaboutus.Wethought that since we are not a municipal clinic, things would change for the better but instead it has gone worse,” said the resident. Health senior communications officer Musawenkosi Mncwabe saidtheclinicisoperatingfrom7:30 am to 4pm every Monday to Friday. Heaskedpeopletobepatientasthey are still in a process of sorting things out at all the clinics that were adopted by the department from the municipality. “It was decided that the previously municipal-owned clinics in the townships be monitored by Imbalenhle clinic. “Esigodiniclinicisoneoftheclinics to be monitored by Imbalenhle clinic. As the department we are in a process of filling the posts so that there is enough staff. “ We are aware of the security issue and we will look at the matter,” said Mncwabe.

UNGISILE primary school in Imbali unit 2 has urged members of the community to come and see what the school can offer getting into trouble of sending their children to schools in town. The school is battling to get enough enrolment as many parents just send their children to city school without satisfy themselves with the resources in local schools. The schools enrolment has dwindled over the years to 403 when the school can take up to 1000 pupils. As the result Lungisile primary school uses only two blocks instead of the four blocks it has. According to the principal of the school,

Thembi Goba the school is well equipped with all the necessary resources and it can accommodate 1000 pupils. Theseresourcesincludethelibrarythatwas donated to the school in 2006. Different sports codes’ kits such as cricket, soccer and netball are also available in the school. Goba told Echo that said the fact that the school is not in an open view could be another reason they are not a well-known school. “We are one of the oldest schools in Imbali township that was built in 1973. The school has facilities and we have all codes of sport for the pupils. We are a school that starts from grade R to grade 7. We start enrolling pupils from the age of four. We have a computer lab that is the pipeline and we are appealing to parents to come and register for next year’s admissions.

The admission for next year started this monthandweareexpecting800to1000pupils. We have a garden that is well maintained as we are based in a green environment area,” said Goba. One of the teachers Manqoba Ndlovu said although they have not won anything but the school is doing well in soccer. In 2011 our under 12 boys reached the final phase in the Danone soccer tournament. “Last year our under 12 soccer boys again reached the finals for the Milo tournament at a district level. We are capable and we meet all the requirements of a good school,” said Ndlovu. The admission for next year’s enrolment started this month. Those who want more information may call the school on 033 398 4684.

Community fed up with stench NOKULUNGA NGOBESE >>nokulungan@myecho.co.za FED by the unbearable stench pro­ duced by nearby factories, residents of Peacevale near Ashdown last week marched to FFS refinery and Hart turn­ ery to voice their concerns. Apart from the unbearable smell caused by leather and methylated spir­ its, residents also complained about being exposed to dangerous chemicals.

Resident Congo Zuma told Echo that this problem has been ongoing for years. “And we are fed up. We want these fac­ tories to find ways of reducing this bad odour.Thereisalsoahighrateofpeople living with tuberculosis, because of the chemicals that they inhale. “They must conduct an environmental study on the safety of their chemicals.

“They must stop dumping harmful substances illegally, as this even af­ fectsourwater.Thereisalsoamosquito problem because of this. We do not want these factories to go anywhere, but we want them to find ways that they can reduce air pollution”. The companies could not comment as people who were supposed to do as said to be out of the country.

Debunking the popular myth about the revival of the ANCYL (PART 1) jounalists TODAYalmosteveryloyalmemberofthe African National Congress accepts that, the decision by the National Executive Committee to disband the African Na­ tional Congress Youth League saved the movement from counter­revolutionaries – that is, a group of people who claimed to be revolutionaries but who had in real­ ity distorted our revolution to serve the interest of an embryonic capitalist class, people who deliberately made the AN­ CYL what it should not be; an opposition to the ANC. On one question, however, there is still disagreement, namely, what should be the role of the ANCYL in the current phase of the struggle? This question must be answered with extra care and beyond the usual rhetoric of evoking the twin task of the Youth League as an ex­ planation of its role. This necessitates a detailed explanation of the ANCYL’s role which takes into account its accumulat­ edhistory,thechallengesoftheyouthre­ flecting broader social ills and intrinsic challenges of poverty, unemployment, inequality and the task confronting the National Democratic Revolution and the organisational renewal process. Accordingly, this article seeks to debunk themyththatcentraltotherevivalofthe ANCYL must be an attempt to speak English like the modern day political clown called Lindiwe Mazibuko and that the Youth League can only attract youth vote for the ANC if it mimic “profession­ als” and speak good English as oppose to the previous woodwork clot. A glimpse on our history A successful organisation employs strat­ egies that attract its core constituency and responds to it needs and aspirations, while understanding that everything is in the state of constant change, just like everything that is under the sun. Organisations must be the reflections of whattheyseektobuildinthesocietyand employ different tactics to realise their strategic objective. The ANCYL is the youthwingoftheANCwhichistheleader of all forces that seek to realise National Democratic Society through the Nation­ al Democratic Revolution. Therefore, its formation was of a particular purpose in the history of our country and that of the ANC itself. The formation of the ANCYL also aimed atreinforcingtheANConithistoricalmis­ sion of creating a non­racial, non­sexist, democraticandprosperousSouthAfrica, whilst bringing the youth into a revolu­ tionary action to take responsibility for the offensive against the Colonialism of the Special Type and what was later to follow, apartheid policies. At its inception, the ANCYL made the declaration that the African had lost all faithinwhitetrustee­ ship over the black majority,

and Africans in particular and made the assertion that the African “rejects the theory that because he is non­White and because he is a conquered race, he must be exterminated. The demands included the right to be a free citizen in the South African democ­ racy; the right to an unhampered pursuit of his national identity and the freedom to make his legitimate contribution to human development”. As correctly con­ tended by the 22nd National Congress Organisation Report of the ANCYL “in averring that, the African had lost all faith in all talk of Trusteeship, the ANCYL then affirmed that the Africans had now elected to determine their own future by their own efforts. In this way, the ANCYL declared that the African had invoked their birthright to revolution.” The ANCYL was formed at a critical time of history when African youth in particu­ larwereincreasinglysearchingforamore radical path to freedom. It first and for most positioned itself as a mass political youth organisation of the ANC that rein­ forces the programmes of the ANC in so­ ciety, and reproduces the ideas of the ANC among the youth by bringing the youth into the struggle for national free­ dom under the broad political ambit of the ANC. Its formation was, first and foremost a response to the needs of youngpeopleatthattime,bywhichitde­ fended the ANC against its critics and therefore reinforcing it in its historic mis­ sion. In its own words in the 1944 Mani­ festo, the ANCYL was not to be “allowed to detract the youth’s attention from the organisation of Congress. In this regard, it is the first step to ensure that the Afri­ can youth has direct connections with the leadership of Congress”. In 1948, the ANCYL published its Basic PolicyDocuments,inwhichitexpounded its aims as, inter alia, (a) rallying and uniting the African youth into one na­ tional front on the basis of African Na­ tionalism; (b) giving force, direction and vigour to the struggle for African Nation­ al Freedom, by assisting, supporting and reinforcing the National Movement – ANC; (c) studying the political, economic and social problems of Africa and the world and (d) striving and working for the educational, moral and cultural ad­ vancement of African youth”. From its inception the ANCYL under­ stood its mission as that of being soldiers of the ANC working in youth section. It understood that the immediate pro­ gramme of the ANC was the attainment of freedom thus devoted all its energies and skills at its disposal in the realisation of freedom. This was better summarised by its agitation slogan “Freedom in our life time”. All the Actions of the 1944 gen­ eration which we cannot re­write given space limitation can then be better un­ derstoodashavingbeeninformedbythis agitation slogan which was in any way a historical mission of the ANC. It is the very same slogan that has been (mis)amended–giventhesecondphase of the transition – to be socio­economic freedom in our lifetime. Hence no right thinking person except if one is too des­ perate or suffers from cognitive disso­ nance would claim this amended slogan belongs to them.

The line up includes Celeste Ntuli, Trevor Gumbi, Siyanda Maphumulo, Felix Hlophe, Mondli Mzizi, Mpukane featuring Mali ‘Mshini’ Ntuli. Show producer Monwabisi Grootboom said: “We’ve decided to stage such a huge show at PMB purely because of the support we have been receiving in the area over the years. “For this reason, we encourage people to buy their tickets sooner as this show will sell-out before the date of the show”. Speaking about what to expect, the only woman comedian in the lineup, Celeste Ntuli said: “The standard will be much higher than before. I have not performed in Pietermaritzburg for a while, so people can expect fresh material”. Tickets are available at Computicket at R150.

OSEPH S. Blatter, Fifa President says football is a school of life. It is in this spirit in my view that football people should elect their leadership. Football in this continent is crying for men and women that put people first before personal fame and fortune. Thegame’smajorobjectiveshouldbetoensure that the majority of people are given opportunities to participate. Football has a major role to play in countries like South Africa. Football is not about huge sponsorships andmegastadiums.Itismoreaboutpeoplederiving fulfilment from participating in a game as players, coaches, referees and spectators. The late Nadasen Thumba Subbiah, a former Padsa official is the best example of men and women required by the game. He volunteered lots of his time to make a difference in the lives of many of us. It is nice to see younger guys in Padsa carrying on in the same vein like uncle Thumba. May both Mr Thumba and Ronnie’s Naidoo’s souls rest in peace. Twenty years after the liberation struggle getting into positions has become a career. We live in a period where very few people have a sense of service. Football like political parties in this country has taken the same direction. Afewindividualshavebecomericherattheexpenseoffootball.Itiseveryoneforhimself/herself. Young people in this country have become spectators while “big” clubs recruit cheap “talent” from foreign countries. Safa districts and LFAs must not be misled by business people. Football needs leaders that have passion for the game. Presently, there are very few officials that spend their weekends in dusty fields ensuring that things move smoothly. This is what younger Eric Mtshatsha did with his peers at Edendale Football Association. I also see this every weekend at Padsa. I am sure there are many like them across South Africa. Money is not everything. It is definitely not the solution for our problems. Young people do not need sponsorships to play in the competitions. Many communities in third world countries lack resources and yet football continues to thrive. If sponsorships were a solution, countries like Mali would never have produced foot-

We have also done our homework about them by watching all their DVDs during their African Cup of Nations and World Cup qualifiers, we are ready and know very well what to expect,” said Igesund. Bafana Bafana ‘s success does not only depend on a win against Botswana, but the South Africans will be also praying for the group A leaders, Ethiopia to lose against the Central African Republic (CAR). Ethiopia travel to Brazzaville, the neutral venue for their clash against the CAR, needing a win to smooth their passage. If Ethiopia lose to CAR, Botswana can progress into the final qualifying stage with a win against South Africa.

“Our part that we need to play is to stay positive and win against Botswana at

all cost. We can’t afford to lose,”said Igesund. It must be remembered that the SA side failed to qualify after losing 2-1 against Ethiopia and ended in the second position in their group. But later on Ethiopia were unlucky when were docked three points after using an illegible player. The scenario around Ethiopia suddenly opened up a “back door” chance of SA to still qualify. During the press conference in Durban last week, Igesund selected eight overseas-based players in his 23-man squad to ensure Bafana out-muscle Botswana. HefeelstheiropponentsonSaturday

HE South African Senior Soccer Men’s team popularly known as Bafana Bafana will go to Saturday’s game against neighbours, Botswana at Moses Mabhida Stadium with two things in their minds. Firstly, Bafana Bafana knows very well that this Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifier is a crucial one and a must win! The SA side also fully understand that their ticket to Brazil does not depend on them only, but on the results of other countries as well. Although things are currently looking impossible, the head coach, Gordon Igesund feels it’s not yet over or done with his qualifying World Cup campaign. “If you understand all the logistics, especially the recent story about our next qualifying match on Saturday, you will see that there is a chance for us to luckily squeeze through to Brazil.
