for teen murder accused Investigating officer, Sergeant Sheldon Norman, testified that murder accused 19 year old Claudius Chetty should not be granted bail because his safety and that of witnesses could not be guaranteed. Chetty is appearing in the Pietermaritzburg Regional Court accused of killing his girlfriend Rashmika Janthielayal (of Greytown) at the Northdale FET College on June 3rd. At the bail application Sergeant Norman said that the accused had contacted
Rashmika who was attending a lecture - the two had later met outside the classroom and then gone to the end of the passage where Chetty handed her a letter. He then produced a knife and stabbed her 14 times. Her best friend is allegedly one of two eye witnesses who saw the stabbing and Norman submitted her life could be in danger if the accused was released on bail. In an affidavit supporting the bail application, the accused said that he had chosen not to testify because he had not the chance to consult his attorney and not because he feared being cross examined. He said he intended pleading not guilty to the murder charge. Chetty claimed he had lost 46kg since being jailed and believed that his detention is having a detrimental effect on his mental health and wellbeing. He had been tested for tuberculosis but the results were inconclusive and had also been
given anti-depressants and pyschiatric treatment. In a second affidavit submitted on a pending assault case, Chetty said he and his brother had assaulted his mother’s boyfriend, Rajendren Pillay when he started pushing them around after they had confronted him about abusing their mother. Pillay maintains he was hit and kicked by the two brothers and laid assualt charges against them-they had subsequently laid counter charges. State prosecutor, Ricky van Wyk and the Investigating Officer were granted time by the Regional Magistrate to check the details of the assault case. The bail application was therefore postponed to Friday 11th October to enable the State also to investigate the allegations regarding Chetty’s physical and mental health while in custody as the Prosecutor said he could not just accept what Chetty had said.

bleeding with their front horns removed by a sharp object such as a saw. Wildlife vets were to decide whether the rhinos would removed to a boma at Hluhluwe where they would be monitored daily or if the wounds were not too deep,
they would be treated and remain in Weenen. According to a report from Ezemvelo, it was supsected that the five rhinos were killed by being darted with an overdose of the M99 drug. It is suspected that a different type of rhino
poaching syndicate is operating in Weenen using the drug. Forensic tests were to be carried out to establish what had caused death. 70 rhinos have been killed in KZN since the beginning of the year.

Hermannsburg Class of 1963 reunion LEADING LEPIDOPTERSITS FROM AFRICA MEET LOCALLY! The Lepidopterists’ Society of Africa celebrated the 30th anniversary of its establishment at a hugely successful conference and annual general meeting held at Hermannsburg School this past weekend. Many of Africa’s top experts and academics from all over South Africa as well as from Kenya and Tanzania gathered to network and share research results. Major topics discussed were conservation, ecological studies, distribution and diversity modelling. A recent highlight was the world class publication of the Conservation Assessment of Butterflies of South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. This collaborative effort authored by members of the society in a partnership with the South African National Biodiversity Institute and the University of Cape town’s Animal Demography unit has received wide acclaim in both academic and conservation circles.

Lepsoc’s latest project is to be known as LepiMAP and will expand on the SABCA project to include the whole of Sub Saharan Africa, and will cover all Lepidoptera (Butterflies and Moths). This is going to be a huge project, and the data management will again be handled by the ADU following the finalisation of a Memorandum of Understanding at the conference. The potential success of this long term project will again be underpinned by data gathered by lepidopterists as well as the Citizen Scientist fraternity, with the use of the ADU’s virtual museum. Our society is appealing to members of the public to become involved in this project. The value of citizen scientists photographing animals and submitting them online with date and co-ordinates has proven to be highly successful and invaluable to conservation efforts. Butterfly census week is another fun event which takes place twice a year and provides valuable data as well. The next BCW takes place on the week of 19th to 27th October. Anybody interested in participating can contact Kevin Cockburn or visit the society’s website at http://www.lepsoc.org.za . If you are interested in other animal groups there are a number of fascinating atlassing projects on the go http:// vmus.adu.org.za . By registering you can obtain an ADU number and make a valuable contribution to science by becoming a citizen scientist and getting involved. Conservation is not only for the guys in khakhi - it is the responsibility of every citizen. We can all make a difference. Goon do it!

Beautiful Benvie Este van Rooyen, Jenny Robinson, Cynthia Ryan, Jackie Chapman, Sheila Redfern, and Robyn Adendorf at Benvie.
ON a recent visit to the beautiful gardens of Benvie, six members of Greytown garden club enjoyed a magnificent morning guided by Jenny Robinson, through the garden established by her great grandfather John Geekie in 1882. Over the years many trees from all over the world have been planted, these are incredibly tall and give the effect of walking in a cathedral, the many coloured azalea and azalea mollis lending the effect
of stain glass windows. Benvie in Karkloof, is well known throughout South Africa by both the gardening and bird watching fraternities. Geekie, a cabinet maker by profession, also loved trees, and imported seedlings from across the world. Many of these trees still stand today, including three giant Mountain ash (Eucalyptus regnans), the trunks of which boast massive circumferences of more than 6.8 m , and are a
rare sight in South Africa. Today the farm’s arboretum is managed by Geekie’s great granddaughter, and his descendants have continued the family tradition of cabinetry and furniture making at Intingo Furniture. The hundred and twenty seven year old garden covers an area of about thirty hectares, and consists mainly of large conifers, rhodedendrons and azaleas, all of which is bordered by
a typical indigenous mist belt forest. The garden features a walkway, about two kilometers long, directing visitors with a series if signs posted along the way. Here bird watchers stand a good chance of seeing Orange Ground Thrush, Chorister Robin Chat, Olive Woodpecker, Grey Cuckoo shrike, Knysna Turaco, White starred Robin and Cape Parrot which use the property as a nesting site.

SADTU GREYTOWN BRANCH NEWS SADTU Greytown Branch is hard at work ensuring that all issues pertaining to education in Umvoti are in order. During the third term, all SADTU members actively engaged in “work to rule” campaign. The campaign was to force the Department of Basic Education in KwaZulu Natal to meet SADTU’s demands. On 17 September, the special Provincial Executive committee agreed that sufficient gains had been made with respect to the demands SADTU put to the Department and as a result, the work-to- rule campaign was suspended. The agreements were taken on OSD for therapists, grading of schools, remuneration of ABET educators, absorption of FET College lecturers, upgrading salaries of public staff, disclosure of R175million for teacher development, the extension and payment of rural incentives, garnishee orders, refund of no work no pay deductions etc. SADTU Greytown Branch thanks all members, Site Stewards in particular for their participation during “work to rule campaign” for further information contact: 082 705 6140, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, Report :Thanda Jila :Branch Secretary

WINDOW ON WEMBLEY The Form 3 ecology trip took place from the 27th to the 29th of September. The scholars all enjoyed camping out at the Mahai Camp at the Royal Natal National Park. The ecology component of the trip was enriched by the beautiful surroundings of the Drakensburg where the majority of pupils succeeded in completing the 30km Sentinal hike on the Saturday, showing their endurance of body and spirit! During the last week of last term, the High School had their annual Interhouse choir competition. The performances were spirited and clearly, the pupils enjoyed singing for their houses. The winning house was Eagles. The Senior Primary phase entered art pieces into the Sanlam Art Competition.

To my husband
SHAN CHETTY Firstly thank you to God Almighty for all his mercies and healing upon you during the painful ordeal and sickness you’ve been through in the past year. We have travelled a beautiful road from teenage sweethearts, to parenthood, to grandparenthood for 47 years. You have shown me what dedication and commitment really means, when it comes to having a healthy and happy life. May the years ahead be filled with love, understanding and contentment through life. I love my life because it gave me you. I love you because you are my life. Happy Birthday. Love you forever – your wife Sumi.

OCTOBER birthstones...and more!
“October’s child is born for woe, And life’s vicissitudes must know, But lay an opal on her breast, And hope will lull those woes to rest.” Opal is the traditional birthstone for the month and is said to have metaphysical properties generating happiness, faithfulness, loyalty and confidence, as well as healing prop erties relating to the eyes. Opal is the considered birthstone for the zodiac sign of Libra (23 September to October) Libra also responds to
Peridot,Agate, Aquamarine, Tour maline and Sapphire. Found in Aus tralia, Mexico and America the name means “to see a change in colour” Libra’s are all about balance, justice, equanimity and stability. They easi ly surround themselves with harmo ny and beauty, but sometimes go to extremes to do so if their goals are unreasonable or unhealthy. With Venus as their ruling planet, Libra’s are very understanding, caring, and often the champion of underdogs.
