HE national pass rate has increased from 73,9% to 78,2% this year. The province’s pass rate has also increased from 73,1% to 77,4% Eighteen-year-old Kwanele Sishi from Masijabule High School in Swayimane was among the 30 top achievers in South Africa, having scooped 7As. Born in the deep rural Swayimaneareawithscarceresources, Sishi doubled her efforts in order to create a better life for her parents and three siblings. She scored As in Zulu, English, mathematics, life orientation, life science, agriculture and physical science. Her success did not come overnight though, as started studying

hard at the beginning of the year and even attended school on Sundays. “I am beyond excited as I have comeveryfartoachievethis.Istudied really hard, practised past examination papers and went to school everyday, including weekends. I would not be where I am today if it was not for thesupportofmyfamily,teachersand school mates”. Advising this year’s matriculants, shesaid:“Ifyoucanseeit,youcandefinitely do it. Believe in yourself, work extra,hard but also give yourself time to rest. If a girl from a rural area like me can make it to the national top achievers, you surely can”. Sishi hopes to study actuarial science at the University of Cape Town. Her school principal, Mthetho Ngcobo, said that her results were the

best that he has ever seen produced in his teaching career. Sandile Ngubane (18) from Edendale Technical High School obtained six distinctions with As in Zulu, English, mathematics, accounting, economics and life orientation. Raised by his grandmother, Ngubane has always been a hard worker and a straight A student. “I worked even harder this year because I had a vision of becoming better”. He encouraged this year’s matric pupils to study hard from the beginning of the year. “Always aim for 100% because even if you do not get it, an A is always guaranteed”. He plans on studying BComm accounting at the University of KwaZulu

Natal. Sthembele Dlamini (18) from Smero Secondary School scooped four As in Zulu, English, life orientation and life sciences. Brought up in a family of five, with an unemployed mother, Dlamini worked hard, attending school from 7am to 9.30 pm. “From the start of the year, I told myself that I would work extra hard, even it meant asking the principal for permission to use the school as a study room after hours”. Although he has not yet been granted financial aid, he hopes to study industrial engineering at Wits University. Advising this year’s matriculants, he said: “There is no recipe for good results except studying”.

KZN Capital FM CEO Jerry Jones said that his main wish for this year is to forgive all those who have done wrong to him, and to also produce a radio station that the city will be proud of.

EO of the soon to open KZN Capital FM radio station, Jerry Jones, said that his main wish for this year is forgiveness, “I want to forgive all those who have done me wrong. My other resolution is to give Pietermaritzburg residents a radio station that they will be proud of, and also to embrace cultural diversity. I also want to show more gratitude where it is deserved”. Station manager of Umgungundlovu 107.6 FM, Muzi Sibiya, said that his main resolution for this year is to ensure a diversified radio station. “This year we are celebrating three years of existence, our radio station has been accepted by the community. All we need to do is to ensure that it reaches people of different cultures as it is predominantly in Zulu. Wewanttoattractpeopletoformalisteners’ club so that they are able to participate in the development of the station. Lastly we want to attract more local businesses to invest into the development of the station”.

Umgungundlovu 107 .6 FM station manager says that his goal for this year is to provide a diversified radio station that will embrace all cultures.

Umgungundlovu district municipality deputy mayor Fucwana Zungu said that her main priority for this year is to ensure that there is water and sanitation in all the municipalities under the district.

KZN Santaco chairperson Boy Zondi said that he wants zero tolerance towards taxi violence in the province.

Deputy mayor of Umgungundlovu district municipality, Fucwana Zungu, said that her main priorities for this year are sanitation and water. “If all the municipalities under our district have water and sanitation by the end of this year, then I would have done my job,” she said.

KZN South African National Taxi Council chairperson Boy Zondi, said that his dream is to see all taxis operating with operating licences. “Idonotwanttoseetaxisnotworking because operating licences are not in the possession of their owners. I also wish to see all taxi drivers and

their conductors conducting themselves with the greatest respect towards commuters. Only those taxis that are roadworthy should be on the road. Lastly I want zero tolerance towards taxi violence in the province. Let us resolve our issues in the boardroom, rather than to fight”.

Matric pass rate beyond expections

KZN with most matric exemptions

JOHANNESBURG — The 2013 matric pass rate exceeded the Basic Education Department’s target by reaching 78,2%, Minister Angie Motshekga said in Johannesburg on Monday. In 2012 it was 73,9%, she said. The department had aimed for a 75% pass rate by 2014. There were 576 490 full-time and 130 646 part-time matriculants for 2013. Schools in poor communities performed better, with 1 832 schools from the lower three quintiles achieving pass rates of 80% and higher. Matrics from these schools got a total of 78 407 bachelor passes, required for admission to universities. “The notion that the schools from the more elite communities are propping up the pass rate is therefore invalid,” Motshekga said. Every province, except the Northern Cape, improved its pass rate compared to 2012. TheFreeStatewasthetopperforming province, increasing its pass rate from 81,1% in 2012 to 87,4% in 2013. Theprovincewiththelowestpassrate was the Eastern Cape with 64,9%, up from 61,4% the previous year. Theresultsfortheotherprovinces,for 2012 and 2013, were: • Western Cape: 82,8% and 85,1%; • Limpopo: 66,9% and 71,8%. It had a 48% pass rate in 2009; • Northern Cape: 74,6% and 74,5%; • KwaZulu-Natal: 73,1% and 77,4%; • Mpumalanga: 70% and 77,6%; • Gauteng: 83,9% and 87%; • North West: 79,5% and 87,2%. — Sapa.

DESPITE coming in just below the national matric pass rate average, KwaZulu–Natal dramatically outperformed all other provinces in the passes “that count” — with a stunning 35% jump in university exemptions. Meanwhile, Premier Senzo Mchunu on Tuesday set the unprecedented target of an 80% pass rate for this year, following the 77,4% pass for the matric class of 2013 — up from 73,1% in 2012. “We are not to accept anything less than 80%. You demonstrated that you can get it. We look forward to working with you to ensure this percentage is achievable,” Mchunu said at the provincial release of matric results in Durban. The new target was set as Education MEC Peggy Nkonyeni threatened to crack the whip on principals of underperforming schools. But in the most stunning achievement across the provinces, Nkonyeni revealed that 47 202 matriculants last year earned the right to study bachelors degrees — compared to just 34 779 in 2012. This also compares favourably to Gauteng’s 38 104 bachelor passes — in second position — and just 19 477 exemptions for the Western Cape. Nkonyeni said: “This development demonstrates the impact that the system is making in improving quality”. Anthony Pierce, KZN head of the National Professional Teachers Organisation, said the increased exemptions represented a “standout” performance. Announcing the results, Nkonyeni said out of the 145 278 candidates who sat for the final examinations, 112 403 passed and 32 875 failed. Other highlights of the matric results included:

>>42 760 matriculants can now study for a diploma, compared to 36 841 in the previous year; >>A 53,6% pass rate in mathematics (five percent increase); >>A 66,4% pass rate in physical science compared to 58% in 2012; >> Life sciences pass rate increased from 67% to 75,4%. >> Schools that obtained less than a 25% pass rate declined from 34 to 25; and >>Seven percent of the province’s schools achieved a 100% pass. Nkonyeni complained about performance in the commercial subjects — business studies, accounting and economics — which recorded only a marginal increase to a 66% pass rate. She said the department were “victims of our own success”. “Over the years we paid more attention in gateway subjects such as mathematics, physical science and technology. In the process, we seem to have neglected other subjects”. Her sentiments were shared by head of department Nkosinathi Sishi “We have to say we are not happy with 66% pass rate. We feel we can do better”. Nkonyeni said the department would pay attention to the schools that underperformed and make appropriate interventions. “There is no room at the inn for lethargy and incompetence. “People who are misfits in our education system must either show their interest to learn to enable themselves or voluntarily leave or we will push them out. “They must either ship in or ship out,” Nkonyeni said.-WR

Kuyizindleko ukuba nomoya omuhle

SIMPHIWE MKHIZE A PROLONGED disagreement between government and the labour federation, Cosatu, on the youth wage subsidy which has now reincarnated as the Em­ ployment Tax Incentive Act, appears to be far from being resolved. Theuncertaintyofthestabilityofpolit­ ical dynamics in this country seems to deserve more attention than youth un­ employment, at least in my personal assessment of things. One cannot but applaud the compro­ mises the ANC–led government has had to engage in as it tries to bend over backwards to accommodate Cosatu’s rejectionofthefirstproposaltoencour­ age employers, especially in the private sector,toemployyoungpeoplewhoare facing unemployment and a doomed life of drug addiction, alcohol abuse and crime. Any parent who can look his or her child in the eyes and say “Cosatu is wrong in denying young people their right to em­

ployment,” would readily agree with me that it is a welcome development that government has passed a piece of legislation called the Employment Tax Incentive Act of 2013. This act of parliament seeks to encour­ age employers to retain employees on condition that they are between the ages of 18 to 24, registered South Afri­ can ID ­carrying citizens and have been employed on or before 1 October 2013 i.e. over three months ago. However, it is still true that older em­ ployees may still be shed if the new younger ones who were temporary la­ bourers are retained. Hence, tensions are inevitable and a showdown would be expected between Cosatu on the one hand and the government/busi­ ness community on the other hand. At the end of the day, the reality of the situation is that the various unions af­ filiated to Cosatu are what they are: or­ ganisedlabourrepresentativesthatare trying hard to represent the interests of the workers, but employers still have the upper hand in deciding who and when to hire or fire. In a healthier country where patriotism matters, an ideal scenario would have

been to have a situation where the in­ terests of older employees are guaran­ teed by the employer class, whilst we embrace new, younger employees who are subsidised by government. In an ideal set–up, there should be nothing wrong with government providing in­ centives to business to create jobs for others. It is a great pity that in South Africa this matterisalsoadeeplypoliticalandide­ ological one. Political because a more radical Cosatu still­to­breakaway group led by the National Union of Met­ alworkers of South Africa (Numsa) is now distancing itself from the ruling party, and defying Cosatu’s one–union, one sector rule due to the continued suspensionoftheCosatugeneralsecre­ tary, Zwelinzima Vavi. Ideological because Cosatu is for a more socialist solution to creating de­ cent jobs which would see sectors like the manufacturing industry enjoying governmentinterventionintheinterest of job creation and a meaningful better life for all. Thanks to the Vavi saga, which may be a precipitating factor in changing the country’s political landscape, it seems

that history is just waiting to judge South African political, labour and business leaders harshly for failing to effectively support the developmental state under the current ruling party. The ANC’s sustained effort to make a mixed economy work in this country has had great potential since 1994, but poor collaboration, lip­service and scanty practical contribution from the side of business and labour circles have, to say the least, let the nation down. Rightly or wrongly, political leadership preferences are constantly unpredicta­ ble in this country. And now the biggest labour federation in Africa is experiencing unfamiliar cracks in leadership too. We also have a business community that remains intransigent and parasitic – if not racist and greedy – and nothing much has changed. The intransigence and selfishness of strategic players may be a new struggle thatwestillneedtoengageinmorevig­ orously than the former anti­apartheid struggle. Simphiwe Mkhize writes in his personal capacity.

Ngema leaves a proud legacy SOUTH Africa lost one of its arts exponents, Bhoyi Ngema, as many were preparing to celebrate Christmas Day 2013 and the ushering in of 2014. Ngema, the brother of Mbongeni Ngema, died in Durban’s Inanda on December 22 after he was hit by a stolen vehicle. His death has been descried as a great loss to the arts industry by KwaZulu–Natal Arts, Culture, Sport and recreation MEC Ntombikayise Sibhidla–Saphetha. “It is with great sadness that we have lost such a talented artist who was inspirational to many young

artists in the country,” said the MEC. Sibhidla–Saphetha said Ngema’s untimely death is not only a loss to his family, but to the province and the country as a whole. “Ourheartsgoouttohisfamilyand the arts and culture fraternity during this difficult period. May we find comfort in the fact that Ngema left a legacy the country is proud of. “We encourage our young artists to take a leaf from his commitment and the hard work he displayed as an artist. May his soul rest in peace,” said the MEC. Bhoyi Ngema was one of the

founder members of Committed Artists. He was widely respected in South Africa’s arts fraternity and abroad as a fine actor. He toured extensively in many of Committed Artists’ productions. Among these were Asinamali, Lion of the East, Magic at 4am and Siyagiya 2012. He also starred in the TV soap, Muvhango. Bhoyi Ngema is survived by his son,Qiniso,andbyhisthreebrothers, Johannes, Mbongeni and Nhlanhla, as well as his two sisters, Fikile and Nokuthula. – Supplied.

Having been out of Bafana Bafana for some time, Mamelodi Sundowans player Bryce Moon is back in the national team that prepares to play Mozambique in the Chans on Saturday evening.

“Look, challenges will be always there. Remember this event is not on the Fifa calendar but we are just glad that we got a team to compete. “I would also like to thank Safa and the team owners for coming up with a solution after sitting around the table. I am glad we are now looking strong and are ready to represent our country with pride. “Whatever happened is now behind us and our focus is on our first game against Mozambique on Saturday. The support and the buzz around the Mother City is amazing and we are going in there on Saturday with positive minds,”said Igesund. Igesund also agrees that Bafana Bafana are in a tough group but said they are prepared for any challenge. “Our group is not easy at all, others are already calling it a group of death. But as a host country, we want to win it.”

ESPITE putting together a team for the Championship of Africa Nations (Chan) being a bit of a battle for Bafana Bafana head coach Gordon Igesund, things are now normal and looking positive. According to Pietermaritzburg player, and MamelodiSundownsdefenderwhoiscurrentlyinthetrainingcamp,BryceMoon,theatmosphere and spirit are very good and suggest that a positive result might be in the pipeline for Bafana Bafana’s first game on Saturday. Bafana Bafana will officially kick off their Chan campaign against Mozambique at 6pm at Cape Town stadium. “Thepreparationsaregoingwellandallthe players are just happy going into the camp. If themood,theatmosphere,thesupportandthe vibe around Cape Town is anything to go by, we are definitely going to do well in the tournament. “The coach and Safa officials around us in the camp are working hard to keep us motivated and focused for the event,” said Moon. Igesund said that all the problems that took place before travelling to the camp are now a thing of the past.
