No money for student accommodation at CS Barlow Hundreds of students from the Sekhukhune TVET College at the CS Barlow Campus in Motetema burned down the college’s Student Support Centre on Tuesday 31 January. The torching follows after the college failed to pay students’ private accommodation at their residential area in Motetema Township. According to Sekhukhune Express Student Movement Chairperson Samuel Moela, the college’s hostel is in a bad state and cannot be used for accommodation. “Students and college management agreed in 2013 that students should rent rooms in the township for accommodation. Some students’ accommodation is been paid by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) and it was agreed that the college should pay the funds to the landlords as the money is paid directly to the college by NSFAS. The college failed to pay the landlords since then,” he said. Moela added that the college management is refusing to release students financial statements. “We do not know where are they taking the money because according to our agreement contract signed with NSFAS during the applications, accommodation money is included and fully paid to the college every month,” he added. He said students complained to the Campus Manager Ms Joyce Mphela about the situation but she failed to attend to the matter. “We wrote a letter to the College CEO Mr Tebogo Kekana on Tuesday 24 January stating our complaints. The issue of the college’s failure to pay for private accommodaStudent Support Centre at tion was listed in the letter. Other issues listed Sekhukhune TVET College in CS in the letter including shortage of text books Barlow Campus Motetema up in and that some of the computers are not working flames. properly resulting in some students unnecessary failing their subjects,” he claimed. Kekana agreed to meet with students on Friday 27 January. During the meeting, Kekana referred students to ask questions to relevant departments offices in the college. “We went to the offices the same Friday but could not find clarification of our complaints. We then went straight to Mphela’s office on Monday requesting a meeting with the bursary committee on Tuesday 31 January and she agreed. Mphela did not pitch in the meeting and students became angry and started burning the Student Support Centre demanding that Mphela should come and address students,” said Moela. Another meeting was scheduled for Thursday 2 February between Mphela and students. According to Moela, during the meeting, Mphela did not address challenges faced by students. Instead, she told students that a formal meeting will be held soon to address their issues. “Mphela did not provide more details about the complaints. Students were not satisfied and agreed to go to Kekana’s office to complain but were denied entry by the police. An urgent meeting was held and it was agreed that a petition should be written against Mphela that she must leave the college premises because she is not serving students’ interests. As students, we have already exhausted the avenues we have. We are tired of engaging with Mphela because she is not listening to us. She is not a consistent person. She

knows how to change stories and whatever she says to students are lies,” he said. Sekhukhune TVET College Spokesperson Abicky Kgolane told the Dispatch that NSFAS has cut student funding in the college which makes it difficult to pay for students’ accommodation. “NSFAS did not allocate all the funds they promised to pay for students’ accommodation. The shortage also affects allocations for other students’ tuition fees,” he said. Kgolane slammed claims that the campus manager is refusing to address students. “We do not have Students Representative Council at this stage and the manager is urged to speak to some of the concerned groups that claim to be representing students. But it seems like the message is not reaching the rest of the students which may result in others claiming that the manager is not addressing the challenges facing the college,” he said.

Ephraim Mogale Ward 15 residents demonstrate against ward councillor Angry community members of Ephraim Mogale Ward 15 took it to the streets on Monday 30 January. Residents were expressing their dissatisfaction about the municipality’s failure to release a date where the community will participate in electing ward committee members. Residents were also demonstrating against the ward councillor in the area, Tebogo Molatudi, for illegally appointing ward committee members and steering committee in a tar road project in the area. Roads were barricaded by dozens of residents and schools were also interrupted. Workers in the tar road project were forcefully removed from the construction site by the angry community members. Jan Mabuso, a community leader in Ephraim Mogale Ward 15, told the Dispatch that since last year the community is waiting for the municipality to come with the date where ward committee members will be elected. “Last year, ward committee members were announced to be taking place on 30 September at Elandskraal Stadium. The ward councillor illegally appointed her people a day before on 29 September at Morarela Village. We disputed the ward committee elected by the councillor because the community was not properly consulted in the election. The committee was not recognized in the municipality and we were promised the Municipal Speaker Molaudi Mothogwane that another date will be set for the elections,” he said. Mabuso claims the community was surprised when the ward councillor appointed the steering committee in a tar road project at Elandskraal Village without proper consultation with the community. “The councillor appointed the same people he illegally elected as ward committee last year to be the steering committee in the project. This action triggered a protest by the community and ended up stopping the project,” he said. He added twelve people were appointed in a raffle system to work in the project but when the construction started on Monday 30 January, the councillor had hired twelve other people known by her. He said the community tried to engage the municipality before the protest but they were given a cold shoulder, which led to the community taking it to the streets. During the protest, the community demanded that Council Speaker Mothogwane should come and address the community. A steering committee was properly elected on Wednesday 1 February by the community members. Mothogwane met community leaders on Thursday 2 February and it was agreed that a date will be released where the community will take part in the elections of ward committee members. According to Mabuso, the community is satisfied with the outcomes of the meeting with Mothogwane and will wait for a date where community members will elect their ward committee members. Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality Spokesperson Jan Phasha said the municipality met with residents and resolved the issue. “The municipality will be releasing the date of ward committee elections where ward 15 community members will be engaged and take part,” he said.

Students warned about bogus tertiary institutions Matriculants are urged to be vigilant when considering their choice of tertiary institutions because many private colleges are operating illegally. This is the warning by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). The department has urged potential students to verify the accreditation of any private college or university before enrolling for studies. It was discovered by DHET that these bogus operators come in all forms and shape. Some of these bogus private colleges get accredited to offer one qualification and go on to offer other programmes that are not accredited with the department. Dr Shaheeda Essack, Director of registrations at Department of Higher Education and Training said what they have discovered is that some of the colleges forge the certificate and insert programmes they are not accredited for. She said it is really shocking to see some of the tricks some colleges get up to. “The department intensifies its fight against bogus institutions of higher learning. Many unsuspecting South Africans have fallen victim to these institutions that are illegally operating. As we are already entered the critical phase of academic registration of 2017, many of these illegal operators will advertise themselves to attract more students. South Africans are urged to guard against these unscrupulous institutions,” said Essack. She said the unregistered colleges use a range of methods to mislead the public. The recent trends identified by the department are the number of on-line operators committing internet fraud by purporting to offer degrees in 15 days using the name and logo of the department. Essack added applicants should head on over the Department of Education’s website to see if the institution is registered. The final component of a college’s accreditation has to do with the fact that the college’s accreditation must be verified by Umalusi. To verify whether a private college has been registered, students can call the department's toll free number 0800 87 22 22,” concluded Essack.

This year we invited more schools and hope it will assist a lot. We are glad that the schools responded positively and came in numbers,” he said.

Stationery delivered to all Limpopo schools The long awaited delivery of textbooks and stationery for learners in Limpopo schools is over, the Limpopo Provincial Department of Education said. The department said it has delivered all the pending supplies needed at schools that were left short of teaching material at the beginning of the 2017 academic year. Limpopo Education Department Provincial Spokesperson Dr Naledzani Rasila said the delay came when they moved from the expired contract that caused the logistics delayed with the new contractor. “The tender for the delivery of stationery was only awarded in November, causing delays in delivery,” he said. Rasila confirmed that delivery for 2018 will be on time, as the current contract is for the next 3 years. For the past three years the provincial and national department have been dragged to court several times by civil rights groups demanding orders to force delivery of textbooks on time. Rasila said that principals and teachers who run out of supplies should contact the department’s toll free number on 0800265266. In 2012, Section 27 and Basic Education For All launched an urgent application to force the government to give textbooks to pupils in Limpopo. At the time, more than 18000 textbooks had not been delivered to about 18 schools in the province. Furthermore, In January 2017, the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) threatened to take legal action against the department if all outstanding textbooks and stationery are not delivered by 26 January 2017. Rasila said that they communicated with the SAHRC to indicate the commitment that they had made. Meanwhile Limpopo Premier Stanley Mathabatha says he is satisfied with the delivery of stationery at schools in the province that had experienced shortages. Mathabatha said that he was also satisfied with the improved efforts by the service provider to ensure that the books reached school.

According to the Managing Director of Mamagoshi Counselling Centre (MMC), who is a Marriage Officer at the Department of Home Affairs and also a high school educator, Reverend Willy Payane, their mission is to move Sekhukhune District’s population to a condition of empowerment and self-determination. He said he started the centre after realizing that a number of people struggle to cope with social difficulties they face on daily basis. “This will be done by enabling the community to adopt innovative strategies to produce desirable actions that lead to healthy living conditions,” he said.

Government is not maintaining soccer fields in villages Sports organizers around Moutse are worried that government is not playing a role in uplifting the standard of football in the area. The organizers complain that the soccer fields are in a bad state, however, they made countless pleas to Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality to clear the soccer fields. Recently on Wednesday 1 February, a local team based in Tayereni Section in Dennilton, Afro FC suffered a 5-0 defeat from Limpopo Premier Soccer League (PSL) giants, Baroka FC. According to the organizers, the defeat could be influenced by Afro FC from Tayereni Village in Dennilton just before the standard of football pitch the team used for taking on Limpopo PSL giants, Baroka FC. training and matches. “Soccer fields around Moutse are in a very bad condition and dragging down the performance of our players. The grass is very tall and there is dongas everywhere caused by recent heavy rains. The boys cannot perform well in that state of the pitch and this lowers their performance,” said July Mogola, a sports organizer in Moutse. Mogola added that they were happy after the fleet machinery was handed over by Elias Motsoaledi Mayor Cllr Julia Mathebe. “We were promised that the machinery will attend Baroka FC and Afro FC players after a friendly soccer the community to clear roads and fields. But match at Ga-Mashabela Village. that happened for a very long time now. It is like no one cares about sporting activities in the municipality,” he said. He should address the issue to the ward councillor added that village teams also lack funding support but there are officials and ward committee members. They are also appointed in the municipality focusing on sports related issues. “We advised to come to the office of the Acting approached Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality requesting that they Director of Infrastructure Department in the assist us with transport when going to play with Baroka but we were told municipality. The machinery is meant to serve there was no budget for sports at that stage. I wonder how can the the community and there is no way the municimunicipality appoint sports official when they do not allocate a budget pality can deny services to the people,” he said. to deal with sporting activities,” he said. Even though they suffered defeat from Baroka FC, Mogola complimented Afro FC players for their commitment shown on the field during the match. “The boys played well and they did not show respect to Baroka in the field at all. Our opponents were also impressed by the players, especially our goalkeepers. We are aiming to host Baroka around June but our challenge is that the fields are not ready to host a professional soccer team. We hope that by then the municipality will prepare the fields, allowing these young boys to fulfill their dream of playing with a PSL team on their home ground in front of their parents and supporters,” he said. Another sports organizer, Tsakisa Solly Ndlovu claims that the municipality and local businesses do not contribute in sports. “This is a challenge to us because local teams lack soccer kits, soccer balls and other materials used in the field of play. We want to take these children out of the streets but we cannot do it alone. These children have talent and we cannot do nothing and watch it wasted on bad things in the streets,” he said. Ndlovu added that the teams are preparing for the Local Football Association league but they are challenged by lack of proper playing fields in their villages. “The league is very important for the boys because it is recognized by the South African Football Association (SAFA) and also the first step to the PSL. The fixture is already out but the fields are not yet ready,” he said. Ndlovu highlighted that the municipality is not taking steps but officials are appointed in the sports department and earn a monthly salary for doing nothing. Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality Spokesperson Simon Makua said the municipality has no official appointed to deal with sports. “The issue of sports is under the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture and we do not have a sports department in the municipality. Residents are advised to contact the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture when seeking assistance,” he said. He added that sport fields are cleared in the villages and said the municipality is not aware that there are some others fields that are left behind. “The complaining community
