Battle for customers >> Discrimination against foreign nationals who run more successful businesses than locals NOKULUNGA NGOBESE

>>nokulungan@myecho.co.za

T

ENSION grips Ematshaheni area as local tuckshop owners and foreign nationals are competing for business space. The area in Imbali’s Unit 14 is surrounded by many local tuckshops, and in between them are tuckshops owned by foreign nationals. As a result some have threatened that xenophobic attacks are looming, if some local residents continue to give them space. The main concern is that these tuckshops, which are mostly owned by Pakistanis, are cheaper

than the local tuckshops. Residents say that they will continue buying from them as they are much cheaper than tuckshops owned by local people. SpeakingtoEcho,anunidentified local tuckshop owner said that many of them are now battling to sustain their businesses and are even thinking of shutting them down. She said: “We are not discriminating ,but we feel that it is unfair for them to leave their countries and take our jobs. They have taken over, as in the area we have close to 10 tuckshops and containers owned by them”. Another tuckshop owner who also did not want to be identified said: “We have been communi-

cating with them politely, but since they are moving into the area almost everyday, we will be forced to chase them away. “Asitisastuckshopownerswe have had several meetings to discussawayforward.Theylefttheir countries for unknown reasons, andnowtheywanttotakeourdaily bread”. A foreign national who owns a tuckshop said that he has been in the area for the past three years,andnotevenoncehaveresidents raised concerns. Ward councillor Cindy Gwala said that the matter is under discussion and they have approached the municipality’s economic development unit for advice.

MORE than 50 000 maidens from all over the country are expected to grace the KwaNyokeni Royal Palace in Non­ goma this Saturday, to take part in the annual reed dance. The reed dance known as Umkhosi Womhlanga has been taking place for the past 28 years, in a bid to educate young girls about the importance of preserving them­ selves. Senior Communications and IT manager within KZN Arts and Culture Department Lethukuthula Mtshali said: “This is one of the important ceremonies within the Zulu culture, especially because it is dedicated to the maidens, whom we also consider as the flowers of the nation. “We use the reed metaphor in referring to the maidens, because they are young and they need to be nurtured in how to embrace their culture, look after themselves without losing their morals by educating them in the matters that have to do with Hiv/Aids, teenage pregnancies and take pride in being virgins,” said Mtshali. Pictured are some of the women who participate in the annual event.

It is very fragile which means it has to be han­ dled with extra care since it breaks easi­ ly. “We use the reed metaphor in referring to the maidens, because they are young and they need to be nurtured in how to embrace their cul­ ture, look after themselves without losing their morals by educating them in the matters that has to do with Hiv/ Aids, teenage preg­ nancies and take pride in being vir­ gins,” said Mtshali.

Microwave cooking was the focus at Hirsch Pietermaritz­ burg’s domestic workers’ course this month. Deidre Stem­ met from Whirlpool showed the ladies how to make muf­ fins, chips, wors and puff pastry treats in the microwave. Deidre also gave the ladies some tips on cleaning a micro­ wave and encouraged them to clean the machine right af­ ter use to avoid any splatters hardening and making it difficult to clean. The ladies enjoyed the session once again and all of them said they would be back next month. Hirsch’s host this course once a month in store.

W

HEN one talks of Nomkhubulwane Institute or virginity testing, there is one name that instantly comes to mind, and that is Nomagugu Ngobese. She is well known for her involvement in cultural activities and is part and parcel of

organising a trip to the annual UMkhosi Womhlanga/Reed Dance at Enyokeni Royal Palace in KwaNongoma. Her involvement in cultural activities and uplifting women started in 1982 at her home in Impendle. She gathered the women in the area and sharpened their cooking skills. Those women saw a need for a crèche in Nguga, banded together and from their own pockets they succeeded in building one. Ngobese’s daughter, who was born in 1982 attended that crèche. “In 1995, I introduced the religion of Nomkhubulwane [a celebration of Mother Earth].

“It took some time for people to understand it. “With this I was not trying to do any harm but I was building the nation. “I was seeing a lot of negligence on the part of the people. “Girls were falling pregnant. They were having kids out of wedlock. I started doing research about the Nomkhubulwane religion. “That is when I grew and understood some of the things in our culture,” she said. She said government is trying its best to honour women, but that this is not enough until we have a woman president. “Women are managers by nature. We need a woman as presi-

dent of the country. “Once we see that, then the government would have done its best. “What has been done wrong is that men have been put on top of everything. “Some of them are not even man enough to act responsibly. “I’m not saying that all of the men are irresponsible; there are a few that are good,” she said. Ngobese said she is happy that August is officially women’s month. “It feels good, although we must be practical about this. “I believe that every day should be women’s day. “Not everything can be done in one month,” she said.

>> Izwi Labafelokazi defending the rights and interests of widows SIMPHIWE MKHIZE

“N

OTHING succeeds like success,” so goes the English saying. This is the most appropriate way of describingtheconsequencesofthestruggle of a city­based empowerment and lobby 32 000­member strong organization for wid­ ows in KwaZulu­Natal, known as Izwi La­ bafelokazi (Voice of the Widows). During the three years of its operation, the provincial organisati on h as emerged as a force to reckon with in the area of de­ fending and promoting the rights and inter­ ests of women and mothers, most of whom become struggling single parents when their spouses pass on. Having had the privilege of following the spectacular growth of this highly useful or­ ganisation over a period of time as a devel­ opmental journalist, I can say without a measure of a doubt that Izwi Labafelokazi is indeed a widow’s dream come true. One of the organisation’s founders and leading pioneers is a middle­aged well­spo­ ken woman called Ntombintombi Mtshare whose compassion, self­sacrifice and hard work have earned her the much­deserved role of heading this non­profit making or­ ganisation as chairperson. Mtshare, who comes from Imbali Unit 1, personifies the struggle of the socio­eco­ nomic emancipation of the woman folk in the land. Recently,shegrantedmean exclusivein­ terview about the latest successes of this provincial formation. She has this story to tell: “It did not come overnight, but after a long time of working hard and knocking on doors, the government departments under the honorable Premier, Dr Zweli Mkhize, as well as other national government struc­ tures, are now opening doors for widows and enabling the organisation to defend and protect the interests of widows,” says Mtshare. “We would not be where we are today if it was not for the provincial Department of Education, which is led by our honorable MEC Mr Senzo Mchunu – his department’s school nutrition programme has employed

We are of late engaged in an ongoing consultation process with the MEC of that provincial department, Mrs Weziwe Thusi. Sheagreeswithusthatvulnerablewom­ en like widows deserve the support of her department in order to empower them eco­ nomically so that they are able to fend for themselves and their families. “We have the support of the South Afri­ can Women in Construction (Sawec) who have a widows’ programme which has en­ gaged 40 of our members’ children through

Sita where they are given training and a sti­ pend of R1 500 over a period of 1 to 3 years. “Through these programs the message is clear to the widow – that a widow cannot sit there and feel sorry for herself just be­ cause her husband has died. The widow must stand up and use what­ ever resources and opportunities are avail­ able, including her children, in order to rise beyondthechallengesthatcameasaresult of losing the regular income that her hus­ band provided for her family,” Mthsare said. Continued Mtshare, “There are various types of widows – there are widows who in­ herit wealth from their husbands and those that are employed. “But there are also those that are left withnothingandtheyareunemployed,and these happen to be in the majority. The lat­ ter are left alone to suffer when their hus­ bands pass away. “A widow has many chal­ lenges – from being overtaxed her hus­ band’s work pension, to losing her house to the bank if she cannot pay for it or oppor­ tunists who take advantage of her as a wid­ ow”. She said that the widow is more than likely to end up being a poor and struggling single parent after the death of her spouse.

As part of Women’s Month celebration, Imbalenhle CHC embarked on an awareness campaign walk to sensitise the community of Imbali about women abuse on Fri­ day. Staff and community members took part in an awareness walk from the clinic to Unit 1, Unit CC and Unit 3 and back to the clinic. Along the way they dis­ tributed pamphlets to the community members and a talk was held at the nearby taxi rank whereby people were encouraged to ask questions about this campaign. Community members were eager to know about the walk as they came out of their houses to collect the pamphlets and some people even join the walk.

You must know your stand and be clued up about many things. The fact is that we have a Women’s month that is celebrated country-wide is promising. I would be happy if more workshops for leadership and mentoring of women and management positions are given to women. I’m happy that at my work place I’m honoured that I play a special role to mentor the subordinates and be a mother to them,” said Sibisi. She hails all the organisations and departments that have activities or participate in activities of others to celebrate women. “I want to tell young women out there that they should love and take care of themselves. The qualities of a good woman are a woman who loves herself. Have self-esteemandtakecareofyourself and others. Assist others, be humble and respect others. Acknowledge your mistakes, learn from them and always fear God.

GAPHAMBI kokuba ngiqale lolu daba ngicela ukubuza ukuthi: ngabe uyini umkhosi womhlanga? Ngithanda ukukwazisa mfundi ukuthi sesifikile leso sikhathi sonyaka lapho izintombi nto zilibhekisa esigodlweni saseNyokeni, KwaNongoma enyakatho ye KwaZulu-Natal, lapho kudabuka khona okhokho bethu. Kuyangithokozisa ukuthi kusekhona amantombazane nabesimame abasaziqhenya ngobuntombi babo.

Ngike ngithande nje ukubuka lo mcimbi nezinto ezenziwa khona ngoba ziyasifundisa kakhulu ngosiko lwethu nokuthi kwakwenziwa njani kudala ngesikhathi sokhokho bethu. Okuhle wukuthi inyanga yabesimame izovaleliswa yiwo lo mcimbi ozoqala ngomhla ka-30 kuNcwaba (August) kuya kumhla ka-2 kuMandulo (September). Umkhosi womhlanga ugujwa minyaka yonke lapho kufika khona bonke abemithombo yezindaba bezoqopha lo mcimbi. Angihlosile ukubhala ngokuthi uyini umkhosi womhlanga. Ngizama ukukhuza ibhadi nehlazo elinyantisa igazi engilibona lenzeka kulo msebenzi obaluleke kangaka weSilo samaBandla. Umkhosi womhlanga awenzelwanga izikhohlakali ziyobheka ukuthi yiziphi izintombi ezizozishe-

la ngoba zibona imizimba yazo. Lezi zikhohlakali zibuka izingane zabantu zize ziconse amathe, zidlale ngazo zithi ziyazithanda zizozithatha ekubeni zingenawo ngisho u ‘2 bhobho’ (20 cents) eziwuhlinzekele ukuyokhululeka zithi: ‘E! Baba, sizocela isihlobo!’. Ngicela ukucacisa ukuthi angibukeli phansi abesilisa aba ngakawahlanganisi kahle amasenti. Ngiphatheka kabuhlungu ngoba ngisanda kuzwa udaba olubuhlungu lwentombazane yaseShowe enyakatho nesifundazwe eyaqala ukuhambela umkhosi womhlanga isencane. Akekho owayengazi ngakubo ukuthi iyintombi nto, futhi isimukeliswe izitifiketi ezintathu zakhona eMhlangeni. Kuthe kusuka yayishelwa ngumlisa thizeni wakhona ngakubo, yenqaba ukumqoma. Ayibelesele lo

mlisa athi ucela ukuyibeka kubo ngemoto ngoba wayengumshayeli wamatekisi. Ivume-ke nayo ngoba lo mlisa wayengu makhelwane wayo. Kwenzeka lokhu nje kanti isikhohlakali sinezinhloso zaso. Sahamba nayo sayoyivalela endlini intombazane sayi dlwengula siphindelela. Intombazane yakwazi ukupulukutshela yabaleka yayotshela ugogo wayo eyayi hlala naye. Emva kwesikhathi intombazane yathola ukuthi lomlisa wayisulela ngesifo sesandulela ngculazi. Okubi wukuthi umsolwa akaboshwanga, wayezicanasela nje endaweni. Leziya zintombi azizigcinele ukuthi kufike nje izikhohlakali zizenzele umathanda ngemizimba yazo. Lesi khohlakali asizange silicabangele ikusasa lentombazane. Abantu abafana nalo mlisa bap-

hoxa igama lamadoda aqotho. Sengikhuluma ngazo zonke izikhohlakali ezidlwengula omama, ogogo, izingane nama ntombazane! Iyangidina le ndaba, ngifuna ukuthi uma uzazi ukuthi le ndaba ikuncinza ikhwapha ucabange ukuthi le nto ekuncinzayo inganjani uma yenziwa kuwena!

Lo mcimbi uqale ngenkomfe yosomabhizinisi besifazane e-Golden Horse, waphetha ehholo lwakwaMncane eVulindlela, lapho bekukhulunywa nosomabhizinisi basezindaweni zasemakhaya. Ngaphansi kwesiqubulo esithi: ‘Yazi iqhaza lakho ekukhuliseni umnotho’, uNgqongqoshe wezeZimali kulesi fundazwe uNkk. Ina Cronje uthe ikusasa lokukhula komnotho kuleli zwe, lisezandleni zabesifazane. Ekhuthaza izinkumbi zabesifazane uthe: “Kungumsebenzi wenu ukukhulisa umnotho, ngokuthi nihlangane ndawonye nivule amathuba omsebenzi azoqeda ububha kanye nezinga eliphezulu lokungasebenzi kwentsha. “Sisodwa singazivulela izimakethe zethu, kunokuthi sithembele emikhiqizweni eyenziwa ngaphandle. Inkinga esinayo kuleli zwe ukuthi sibheke kakhulu imikhiqizo yamanye amazwe, ngaphezu kwesizenzela yona. “Ezinye izinto ezisibuyisela emuva, ukungabikhona koxhaso lwezi-

mali zokuqala amabhizinisi. Isikhathi esiningi abesifazane bazithola beshiywe ngaphandle uma befuna uxhaso lwezimali ezinkulu, ngoba amabhange asuke engenawo umlando wabo wezokuphatha izimali, ngoba basuke bengakabi nazo izikweletu ezinkulu”. Uqhube wathi into ezosiza ukuthuthukisa umnotho ukuba bazifundise kabanzi ngokuphatha izimali, kube namathuba okuba bakwazi ukuvula izikweletu zokuba baqale amabhizinisi kanye nokuba yingxenye yezinhlangano zokonga imali. UNksz Ntokozo Zikalala, oyilungu lenhlangano efundisa abantu ngokuphathwa kwemali, uthe: “Abantu abangafundisekile ngokuphathwa kwezimali bawumthwalo emphakathini. Imali ayitholakali kalula, yingakho abantu kumele baqapheleukuthibayisebenzisakanjani”. Leli bhange liphinde laba nomunye umcimbi kwelinye lamahhotela edolobheni lapho belifundisa osomabhizinisi besifazane ngokuhlelwa kwezezimali, ukubhala amaplani amabhizinisi kanye nokumaketha amabhizinisi emphakathini.

He also writes and stars in SABC1’s sitcom Ses’top la a spin-off of the hugely successful City Ses’la, hosts Mzansi Magic’s travel show Msawawa True South with Trevor Gumbi, and starred in the film 31 Million Reasons. He’s also performed at Kings & Queens of comedy, Oppikoppi, Rocking the daisies, Kingsize comedy jams, Blacks Only, Laugh out Loud, Arts Alive comedy festival and many more. Gumbi’s charm offsets his assertive energy on stage, as he brings to the fore politically uncomfortable issues, delivering them with hilarity. Monwabisi Grootboom, of Wow Entertainment, which is staging the event in the

city with the support of The Witness and Gagasi 99.5 FM, said: “We’ve decided to stage such a huge show in Pietermaritzburg purely because of the support we’ve been receiving in the area over the years. “For this reason, we’d encourage the people to buy their tickets sooner as this show will sell-out before the date of the show.” Tickets are R150 at the Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers stores. — Arts Editor • arts@witness.co.za

Uhulumeni wande ngemithetho okunokulungisa Mhleli: IYAKHALISA imithetho eshaywa uhulu­ meni wethu. Eminingi yayo inzima yedlula eyohulumeni wobandlululo. Abantu bajab­ ulela ukuthi baba sezikhundleni bashintsha into eyayingadingi kushintshwa. Ake siqale ngomnyango wezemfundo, wawuhloseni ngokuvala amakolishi othi­ sha? Kungani ungathanga kokwakwenziwe uhulumeni wobandlululo alungiswa aba sezingeni elidingekayo. Izinyunyana zibona manje ukuthi kwen­ zeka iphutha evalwa, kodwa zazikhona ngenkathi kwenzeka lokhu. Ukuhlangan­ iswa kwamanyuvesi kwasiza ngani ngoba okunokuba izinga lokufunda liye phezulu li­ yehla, kwehliswa namaphuzu okungena ku­ wona. Ukushintshwakwezincwadizokushayela zibe amakhadi kwaletha muphi umehluko ngaphandle nje kokuthi kufaka imali kuben­ zi bawo amakhadi, nangokuthi njalo uya­ khokha uma sewuyokwenza elisha. Njalo uma sewuyovuselela kusuke sekubiza ka­ khulu okunakuqala. Nelayisensi yesibhamu isiyavuselelwa emva kweminyaka emihlanu, nayo isekhadini, ama­ID manje asengamakhadi. Ngenhlanhla wona kabakasho ukuthi azo­ vuselelwa emuva kweminyaka emihlanu. Uma kuqala into bathi kuzonqandeka ubugebengubeshobedlalanjengobaaban­ tu abenza le misebenzi kakuzona ingelosi. Zonke lezi zinto imali yokuzenza iphezulu, kwenyuka yonke into, kodwa kuhulumeni wobandlululo wawenza izincwadi kube ikanye ungale uyokhokhela ukuvuselela, kundawonye kwi­ID.

Shortage of ambulances in Vulindlela I FIND it difficult to understand a situa­ tion whereby an ambulance is called at 7:45am up until 11:30am and still does not respond.

Uhulumeni wethu okunokuba asehlisele izindleko nguye ozisa phezulu kakhulu oku­ nakuqala. Enye into yilendaba yamathuba emise­ benzi, hhayike wona avaleke kakhulu oku­ nakuqala. Uhulumeni wethu uqhamuke nendaba yezinkonteleka nje. Yizo esezenza umsebenzi, kuqala bewujabula uma uthole umsebenzi kumnyango wahulumeni, uthi uthole umsebenzi wokugugela, onazo zonke izidingo. Njengamanje kakusaqashwa eminyangweni eminingi, ku­ hamba umuntu kugcwalise umuntu oyinkonteleka, ngenxa nje yamathenda. Abantuasebedlakahleabanezinkampa­ ni abaziyo bazothola amathenda bese berobha abantu ababasebenzelayo. Lezi nkonteleka kazinikezi umsebenzi osezin­ geni, kuzona ukwenza inzuzo kakhulu oku­ nokwenza umsebenzi oncomekayo. Ubufakazi balokho ukubona kubantu abaphesha imigwaqo, kusewomasipala kwakuba itiyela elisezingeni, manje baphe­ shanamhlanjengenyangaelandelayoseku­ nomgodi futhi. Nakwimigwaqo engothela­ wayeka iso leso. Bake basuse ukhonkolo ba­ fake itiyela, benzela ukuthi basheshe babuye bazophesha futhi. Sasikuphi isidingo sokushintsha amaga­ ma emigwaqo ibe isenemigodi, engabe iya­ lungiswa kuqala? Kwezinye izindawo imig­ waqo inamagama amabili, elisha ebhodini, kodwa kukhonkolo womgwaqo kuse igama elidala. Kusobala kwaphela upende wokub­ hala, okanye basalindele ukwenza ithenda yokubhala phansi. Manjesekuzobaicalaukuthasulaingane. Kusobala uhulumeni ufuna kwande izin­

gane ezihlala emigwaqeni. Ngicabanga ukuthi lapha uNgqongqoshe wehluleke uk­ wehlukanisa phakathi kokuhlukumeza nokwakha ingane. Uze ulinganisa izinto ez­ ingefani, uthi ukuthasula unkosikazi kuyica­ la, kumele kube icala nasenganeni. Unko­ sikazi umuntu omdala okwaziyo ukwehlu­ kanisa okuhle nokubi, okungamele athasulwe, kodwa ingane kuyenzeka in­ galaleli ikudinge ukuthasulwa. Sisuke sibone izinto kwamanye amazwe bese sicabanga ukuthi nathi izosisebenzela, kanti asifani futhi asisoze sefana. Umzali usuke eyakha ingane yakhe, abangasifaki ingane emaphaketheni ngoba uma bekhu­ luma ngamalungelo azo kuzomele basho ukuthi awabazali atholakala kuphi, ngoba kuzoba yizo ezishaya thina. Maningi kakhulu amaphutha asenzekile ake balungise wona, bangajabuleli uku­ shaya eminye imithetho engalisizi leli zwe kodwa egqilaza thina. Njengoba kuza ukhetho siyazi ave be­ lungile, bahambela phansi, kodwa emva kokhetho bahambela phezulu. Umthetho eningawushaya manje ukuthi nani nikhokhele upetrol, singafi sodwa nina nibenitetemukanezithandwazenungopet­ rol eniwuthelelwa ithina. Kukhona izinto ezenziwa uhulumeni wobandlululwa ezingadingi, nezazingadin­ gi ukushintshwa kodwa okwakumele zenzi­ we zihambisane nesimanje. Ukuvuma iphutha bese uyalungisa kakulona icala.

When I recalled the ambulance services I was told that there are only three ambu­ lances operating in our Vulindlela area. It is a shocking and disappointing state­ ment that such anareawithalargepopula­ tion is serviced so poorly. I have no doubt that if it was a predomi­ nantly white suburb this would not have happened. Itisdisappointingthatwearenotreaping the fruitsofourfreedom.Itwillbeverymuch

appreciated if such problems can be recti­ fied withimmediateeffect as we are about to embark on the 2014 elections. The department of health needs to ad­ dress lack of staff and resources urgently. THEMBINKOSI MDUNGE KwaMnyandu

HE 25 year old Ethiopian Getachew Bekele (25) from Ethiopia was the first to touch the Nelson Mandela Marathon finish line on Sunday morning. The marathon started from the Manaye hall in Imbali to the Mandela Capture site in Howick. Bekele finished the race in 2/29/48 (2 hours,28minutesand19seconds).Hewasfollowed by Nedbank’s David Rasefako who finished in 2/30/50. Sikhumbuzo Seme from Cape Town was the South African who made it in the third place in 2/31/25. Moses Mabhida Road came into a standstill for longer minutes as runners were running in the inner routes of the race in Imbali. Residents from Gomora and Imbali Unit 1 came out in numbers to support the runners. Hordes of people were also at the Mandela Capture site where the race ended. Speaking to Echo, Bekele said he could not explain his excitement after winning the race. Speaking through his translator, promised that he is coming back to run the race again. “IknowtheMandelanamebecauseheisthe world icon. Being part of a project with the Mandela name is an honour. It was the first time I have won the race and the greatest achievement of the year,” he said. The 28 year old Seme said becoming the third winner of the race was a surprise to him. “I’m happy and this shows that training hard pays. I have been training for six months and next year I’m aiming for a win. I’m happy about the race and to be part of something that has a Mandela name. Lastyear’swinneroftherace,BrightonChipere didn’t finish the race on Sunday. He threw in the towel after running 13 km and he said he was disappointed at himself. “IrealisedthatIwaskillingmyself.Mybody couldn’t take it anymore. I think if I had trained like last year, maybe I would have made it to the finish,” said Chipere. The first female runner was Chiyedza Choroke who was followed by her sister Lizih Choroke. The fourth place was taken by Winile Mnisi and the fifth by Cary Ann Smith.

Salie, who played for Cape Town All Stars last term,haspennedathree­yeardealwiththeTeam of Choice. United commercial manager, Younus Kadodia, is confident the 22­year­old will prove his worth.

“The goalkeeping department has seen a lot of change this season with Arthur Bartman taking over as the goalkeeper coach and we believe that Salie’s signing is a positive one, especially with him having game­time at Vasco da Gama in the National First Division last season “He has shown immense potential and has been part of the junior national teams in the past and isstillyoung.AndunderthetutelageofArthurand guys like Shu­aib (Walters), we believe he can de­ liver on this potential,” he added.

Back to reality for

BAFANA BAFANA I

T’S now back to real life and to official fixtures for Bafana Bafana. The time to play a series of friendlies has now ended and head coach Gordon Igesund and his troops need to concentrate on the upcoming games and make sure that the country qualifies for 2014 Brazil World Cup. Last week, the SA senior national side played two quality international friendlies against the reigning African Champions, Nigeria and Burkina Faso respectively during a series of sporting events to honour former President Nelson Mandela. The SA outfit went down 2-0 against the Nigerians last Wednesday

TALKING FOOTBALL

THABO DLADLA THE match between South African former footballers and their Italian counterparts confirmed that previous footballers were not better than the present generation. Although, the Italians were much older than our team, they proved to be fitter and cleverer. We hope that this useless debate is a closed chapter now. Football in South Africa has definitely improved compared to 30-40 years ago. The present generation is unfairly compared to their peers across the world.

but they managed to bounce back and won 2-0 against Burkina Faso. The reality is Bafana Bafana will faceBotswananextmonth,7September, at Moses Mabhida Stadium in a must-win World Cup qualifying encounter. Also the tricky situation is, South Africans will have to pray hard andhopeforthebestbecausetheticket to Brazil is no longer in their hands. SA’s trip to Brazil in 2014 will depend on the other fixture between the Central African Republic and Ethiopia. SA will be hoping that CAR pull off a major upset by beating the current group leaders Ethiopia in order for Bafana to progress to the final round of World Cup qualifiers.

Igesund has agreed that the friendlies were tough, quality and a good exercise, but his forwards need toapplysome“urgency”infrontofthe goalmouth. “Sometimes I feel we need to be more quicker around that area because only goals win matches.” He says it was evident in their recent international friendlies. “I thought we were able to bounce back brilliantly against Burkina Faso on Saturday. We dominated but still failed to use most of the chances we created. Maybe my players were a little bit too patient, but if you create chances and don’t score it can be a concern,” said the coach.

Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund. He is hoping that all players in his wish list will be available or will be allowed by the circumstances to be part of the squad. For the past three weeks it has been difficult for Igesund as most players pulled out for different reasons, such as injuries and Caf fixtures for teams like Orlando Pirates. “We are almost used to working with obstacles every time we call up players for the national team. We understand there’s good reason for that but we hope for good preparations for Botswana game because it’s the Fifa date. He hopes “to field the best team available” against Botswana and his

In fact it was embarrassing to see manyofourguysbeingobese.Whatexample are we setting for the young players? A lot of education is needed to improve sports in general. People need to learn that sports do not end the day you retire from professional football. Exercise and proper diet should be a lifestyle for those involved as coaches and managers. Surely, as adults you cannotbeasfitandtrimasayoungperson. The “legends” football match against the Italians gave a clear picture ofSouthAfricanfootball.Ithinkformer footballers should do more than just talking. We are all part of South African FootballAssociation.Therealityisthat many of our guys played football under the era of kick and rush coupled with tricks done randomly. Technical-tactical understanding is still a challenge. We need to humble ourselves and undergo training to improve our coaching skills. Black football coaches in particular need to be a bit more disciplined in our country. We do not take the job of football coaching seriously. It is not good

for the industry that football coaches are obese. I think many of our guys are capable; we just need to improve our professionalism. Many former players wanttobegivenjobsinthePSLwithout proving themselves at youth level. People fail to understand that coaching is a professional job. South African football needs top technicians at youth level. If we are to compete with the best in the world, our only hope is lower levels. We hope that the South African Football Association gets a visionary leader in the upcoming elections. This country needs the kind of leadership that will put the interests of youth in the forefront. Presently, there are very few leaders even at district level. FootballleaderslikeEricMtshatsha and a few others are an endangered species in South African football.

It is also encouraging that United were able to win their first official opening fixture against the rookies Polokwane City 1-0 at Harry Gwala Stadium early this month. Although the Team of Choice’s offseasonpreparationswerealmostdisturbed by the injuries of a couple of players, the head coach Ernst Middendorp’s mission is to keep the momentum shown against City in order to end in the top eight bracket at the end of the season. Middendorp also believes the recent break gave his injured players a chance to heal. He was reported saying that he is happy to start the campaign on a high note as this will set the tune for the rest of the season. “It was good to start with

ARITZBURG United are expected to intensify their campaign for maximum points when they host UniversityofPretoria this Saturday night at Harry Gwala Stadium. Midweek (Wednesday) the Team of Choice travelled to Charles Mopeli Stadium and played Free State Stars. Whatever happened in the Free State must be treated as history in order for the players to stay focused and strong in the current season. Although United’s game is not expected to be smooth sailing, it is likely to earn maximum points against AmaTuks, especially as it happens in front of the home fans. If the home side can keep the heat, steam and pressurise the visitors all the way, a win will be easily secured.
