This ‘Madala’ was on of the protestors outside the Lydenburg Magistrate Court on Friday with hundreds of other protestors disputing and supporting a hanging court case that is making a lot of waves. ~ Photo Michelle Boshoff

HE airwaves across Lydenburg are abuzz about the court case between two neighbours. The tavern or 'shebeen' has caused a stir with major legal issues after it opened in December on a smallholding. It has caused havoc in the Potloodspruit community and the sounds border on noise pollution according to some of the residents. The whole issue escalated and the complainants appeared in the Lydenburg Magistrate Court on Friday. The Mashishing United Forum and other politically charged organisations led protests but on Thursday evening videos were taken of a group of people toi-toi'ing in Viljoen Street singing 'Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer'. These evil and vile words have led residents to ask where are the political interest groups, which need to fight against discrimination and hate speech. Taking the horrific farm attacks and other crime in South Africa into account the community can’t afford tension like this. The case is still pending and information is still sub judice and therefore prohibited from being published as it may influence the pending court case. ~ Michelle Boshoff

15 Februarie / February 2018 Roads Agency Limpopo (RAL) will, on February 16, host a stakeholder engagement and fundraising session with the mining industry in the Sekhukhune district municipality. The session is aimed at building cofunding relationships between RAL, the mines and local communities, RAL CEO Maselaganye Matji explains. Since adopting this strategic partnership approach, RAL has raised more than R380million and continues to secure more partnerships. It is aiming to raise R100-million for the current financial year.

“Thank you to Dr Bugatcha, Dr Van der Merwe and the staff and nurses of Lydenburg Hospital. You gave us good medical assistance and helped to save my baby,” said Mrs Adeline Cronje.

delinke (een jaar) is in Desember met baie hoë koors opgeneem in die Lydenburg Hospitaal. Die dokters kon eers nie bepaal wat die rede daarvoor was nie maar sy het stuiptrekkings gekry. Haar ma het haar dadelik vanaf Burgersfort na die Lydenburg Hospitaal gebring aangesien die gesin nie ‘n mediesefonds het nie. Haar ma, me. Adeline Cronje het gesê die ongevalle het hulle dadelik begin help maar Adelinke se rooibloedselle was heeltemal te laag. Toe kom daar nog 'n gesin met malaria aan. Toe die hospitaal besef beide gesinne is vanaf Burgersfort het hulle dadelik vir malaria begin behandel. “Ek wil dit noem, want almal het altyd iets negatiefs van die Lydenburg Hospitaal te sê en ek aanvaar daar is probleme. Maar ek moet hulle bedank vir die goeie sorg, kos, lakens en baie aandag wat die personeel vir my en my baba gegee het. Dit is belangrik om ook die goeie dinge wat hulle doen te sê. Hulle het Adelinke mooi gemonitor deur die dag en nag vir weke,” het me. Cronje vertel. Dankie aan dr’s Bugatcha en Van der Merwe, die personeel en almal wat soveel vir die gesin gedoen het want dit is bloot ‘n wonderwerk dat hierdie klein babadogtertjie dit oorleef het. ~ Michelle Boshoff

Lindie Strydom het 'n groot groep vroue uitgedaag om te leer vrae vra - veral vir

HOORHIERSO, met Valentynsdag wil ek ook ’n eiertjie lê. Eerste liefde, niks so soet en intensief nie. Só moet mens van baie hoor wat dit al ondervind het. Jou eerste liefde is mos jou grootste. Dit maak die grootste indruk op jou. Sien, op Hoorhierso is daar nie 'n lewende wese wat te veel oe en aa oor die liefde nie. Miskien is ek nog nooit hard genoeg oor my kop geslaan daarmee nie. Maar tog maak ek altyd die regte aanmerkings as iemand my van hulle pragtige verhouding vertel. En ook hoe hulle ontmoet het. Moet tog bieg, met die ontmoet deel konsentreer ek bietjie harder. Mens weet nooit, dalk vang ek 'n paar idees waar om my beterhelfte eendag te ontmoet. Let wel: eendag en ek weet nie van die beter nie! Nou die dag vertel 'n dame my van haar interessante ervaring. Vreemde emosies, vertel sy, het weer by haar opgekom toe sy met die man praat met wie sy in 1972 uitgegaan het. Die man het haar die trekpas gegee na die eerste week wat sy begin skoolhou het. 'n Ryk boeredogter het hom gesteel. Dit het by haar uitgekom dat die man kanker onder lede het en sy besluit toe om hom te skakel. Sy kry toe nou die dag 'n sms waarin hy om verskoning smeek vir destyds se hartseer. Eintlik, vertel sy ook, het hy niks verkeerd gedoen nie. Jy besluit mos maar self wie moet jou lewensmaat wees. En sy wonder: Kan dit moontlik wees dat na 30 jaar dieselfde liefde gevoel by jou opkom? Sy was 22 jaar oud. Ou-liefdes het mos 'n manier om by jou te spook. Bekende Emily Brontë het geskryf oor die liefde… soos ewige kranse. “Waarvan ons siele ook al gemaak is, syne en myne is dieselfde… en wie, vra ek jou, wie sal ons van mekaar skei? Knut Hamsun, 'n literêre fundi het die liefde beskryf as 'n “wind wat suis deur die rose, nee, 'n vlammende vuur in die bloed. Die liefde is soos musiek en laat selfs die ou mense se harte dans. O, die liefde, dis 'n somernag met sterre aan die hemel en geur op die aarde. Dit het een lentedag op aarde gekom toe 'n jongeling twee oë gesien het, twee oë. Hy staar en sien. Toe is dit asof twee ligte mekaar in sy hart ontmoet, 'n son wat weerlig teen 'n ster. Toe hoor en sien hy niks meer in die wêreld nie. En die liefde het die wêreld se ontstaan en die wêreld se heerser geword. Soos die spil waarom alles draai, sê die wat weet... Deur Michelle Boshoff

hulself. "Moenie met 'n antwoord probeer kom vir 'n probleem in die gemeenskap waar jy lewe, voordat jy werklik weet wat die behoefte is nie dit kry jy net reg deur opreg vrae te vra," het sy gesê. "God vra soms vir jou: 'Wat is in jou hand?' 'Waar is jou broer of suster?' Maar Hy stel ook belang in jou eie vrae. Die antwoorde hierop kry jy in sy Woord - mits jy Hom

SPREUKE 25:26 'n Fontein, 'n put waarvan die water vuil en stink geword het, so is 'n regverdige wat hom tot 'n val laat bring deur 'n goddelose. Vader, stuur U water van genade oor U volk - Amen.

RONDOM 1978 het ek, toe reeds ’n paar jaar by die Visserye werksaam, voorspel dat die volgende groot oorlog oor water sal gaan. Dit nadat ek die effek van droogtes en die skade van besoedeling aan riviere en ondergrondse waterbronne begin waarneem het.

komponent van wetenskaplikes op Lydenburg gevestig. Hulle het onder bekwame mense soos Drs. Neels Kleynhans en oorlede Johan Engelbrecht die watermoniteringsprogramme ontwikkel en gevestig, wat deur ander provinsiale bewaringsowerhede nagevolg is. Maar sedert 1994 luister politici en natuurbewaringshoofde (politieke kaders) nie meer na hulle kundiges nie. Die toestroming van mense na dorpe regoor die land het die regering met die spreekwoordelike broek op hulle voete gevang. Geen behoorlike infrastruktuurontwikkeling (lees water krag

Briew e aan die redakteur

en sanitasie) is behoorlik beplan en gedoen nie. Ons praat nie eers van die instandhouding van bestaande ou stelsels nie. Die probleme in die Kaap gaan mettertyd orals voorkom, want ons stuur besoedelde water in die riviere in, ons bou nie nuwe damme en pypleidings nie en ons gee nie onverwyld aandag aan waterlekke nie. Indien Kaapstad se water opraak en mense met bottels moet toustaan vir water, gaan sporadiese opstootjies vinnig uitbreek. Hier in Lydenburg is ons in la-la land en besproei steeds tuine asof daar geen toekoms is nie. Om water op te gaar gaan nie help nie. Hoeveel kan jy opgaar? Hoe lank gaan jy met 10 000 liter uit ’n tenk klaarkom? ’n Droogte is nie ’n stukkende pomp wat in ’n week herstel kan word nie. Begin nou water spaar!

BNI Longtom stuur water Kaap toe

BNI Lydenburg, (Lontom tak) het verlede week Woensdag ’n gesamentlike vergadering gehou met die BNI Chapters van Nelspruit en Witrivier. Tydens die vergadering is die gaste toegespreek deur Pieter Van Der Westhuyzen (middel op die foto bo saam met Dawie Ras en Phillip Dunne) en het die gaste na ontbyt ook geleentheid gehad om te netwerk. Die verrigtinge is gelei deur Dawie Ras van De Graaf Under Car. Met die hulp van baie mense het BNI Longtom (Lydenburg) ’n bakkie vol 5 liter bottels water na Nelspruit geneem as ’n skenking aan Kaapstad. Baie dankie aan McGee & Kie, wat die bottels gratis vol gemaak het en ook aan al die ander helpers wat anoniem wil bly. Reinet Bell

WITH National Epilepsy Week (12 to 18 February) it's time to take a closer look at the condition that affects one out of every 100 South Africans and explore the issues around disclosure. According to Justene Smith, a disability expert at equity solutions company, Progression, epilepsy may be classified as disability in terms of the Employment Equity Act if it substantially limits a person's entry into or advancement in employment or if it substantially impacts on a person's ability to perform the inherent functions related to their role. “While disclosing one's condition can empower the person to explore their reasonable accommodation need with their employer, it may also have negative consequences for the person with epilepsy. This depends largely on the attitude of management at their workplace.” Are South Africans legally required to disclose their epilepsy status? According to the Employment Equity Act, South Africans are not legally required to disclose a disability such as epilepsy. Even though employees may be asked to complete the standard Employment Equity Declaration Form (EEA1 form), which is used to confirm the employee's race, gender, nationality and disability status, they are not compelled to disclose a disability as this is considered to be voluntary. What are the benefits of disclosure? Smith says if employers know about a condition such as epilepsy, they can ensure the person is integrated into the workplace successfully. “It also affords employers the opportunity to make

important decisions about what conditions are most suitable for the person with epilepsy.” “it also affords employers the opportunity to have a discussion with the individual to establish potential risks and barrier so that Reasonable Accommodation and Health and Safety can be considered and measures can be implement where required to the benefit of the employee and employer alike.” In a construction environment there may be physical requirements that could pose risk for a person with epilepsy, for example if staff work at height up ladders, on scaffolding or operate heavy machinery. It is important to remember that if valid risk has been identified it is fair to conclude that this may not be a safe environment for a person who has disclosed epilepsy to be working. “By disclosing their condition, people with epilepsy are well positioned to create awareness about epilepsy and provide others with insight on what to be aware of and what needs to be done in the event of a seizure,” adds Smith. What are the benefits of non-disclosure? Smith points out that many South Africans are not educated about epilepsy. “Employers may view the appointment of someone with epilepsy as a risk and they may decide not to employ the job-seeker in the first place.” Knowledge of an epilepsy condition might create an uncomfortable situation for the person who has disclosed his or her condition. Employers or colleagues may think they need to treat the person differently.

“While they may think they are being helpful, they are actually creating an uncomfortable situation for the person with epilepsy,” says Smith. It is however also very important to consider the number of people with Epilepsy in South Africa and encourage workplaces, staff and also communities to accept this more openly as the judgement element is generally illinformed. How can employers accommodate persons with epilepsy? Knowing how to accommodate someone with epilepsy is dependent on understanding what known triggers can cause a seizure. Smith says if a person's epilepsy is triggered by sudden loud noises, they would need to be placed in a relatively quiet office. “Alternatively, if heat or extreme temperatures are a trigger, they would need to be placed in an environment that has an air conditioner or adequate ventilation systems.” She adds that employers need to made award that people who access medication through government services only receive 30 days' worth of medication at a time. “This means the next appointment issued to the employee for the collection of the medication may fall on a week day and could result in a day's absence from work. “Because of this, we generally recommend that individuals who make use of government services to manage their health appropriately are given one day of health management leave per month as part of their reasonable accommodation,” she says.

Of course, this leave needs to be validated with either a doctor's letter or a stamped letter from the clinic, confirming the individual's attendance. What are some important factors to consider to ensure all employees, including those with epilepsy, are accommodated in the work space? Every organisation needs to make sure that they have appropriate health and safety measures in place, including a qualified first-aider. “Often, when I inform employers or HR staff that people will not always disclose their epilepsy, their responses are similar: "What am I meant to do if the person has a seizure at work?”. This is where the organisation's health and safety policy come into play,” says Smith. “It is important to note that no one is obligated to disclose that they have a condition such as epilepsy. Thus, having a first aider on site who will provide support should an injury or emergency occur should be a priority for any organisation. Standard first aid provides some basic tools and measures for managing a person who may be experiencing a seizure. However, further emergency medical intervention should be sought immediately.” “Conducting risk assessments is also important. Employers need to determine what areas present risks, such as working on ladders, scaffolding or at heights. This would help them determining suitable roles and work environments where a person with a disability would be safe and well accommodated at work.,” concludes Smith.

FORD has taken the wraps off its new EcoSport Storm, a fresh version of its little crossover that boasts four-wheel drive and styling inspired by the F-150 Raptor (and, indeed, the recently revealed Ranger Raptor). Developed for the Brazilian market, the EcoSport Storm is essentially the production version of the concept of the same name revealed way back at the 2014 São Paulo Motor Show. Interestingly, the EcoSport Storm doesn’t merely appear brawnier than the standard model, it actually is, measuring in at 88 mm longer and 20 mm wider. The new variant gains a model-specific grille, complete with the sort of block lettering

degraaflydenburg@webmail.co.za made popular by the Raptor (although this one reads “Storm” rather than “Ford”). Other highlights include black-masked Xenon headlamps, a model-specific solid spare wheel cover (with the “Storm” lettering repeated), 17-inch alloys and a smattering of special decals. In the Brazilian market, urge comes from a naturally aspirated 2,0-litre petrol engine worth 127 kW and 202 N.m. A new six-speed torque converter automatic transmission is standard, mating the engine to the on-demand four-wheel-drive system. The suspension system also benefits from a few changes, with an independent multilink set-up used at the rear, along with progressive springs. The front suspension, meanwhile, has been hiked by 17 mm and features recalibrated springs. Will the EcoSport Storm come to South Africa? Well, it seems unlikely, although we wouldn’t be surprised to see a few aftermarket Raptor-style kits for the crossover popping up on the local market in the near future. carmag.co.za

HYUNDAI has released the first official images of its boldly styled fourthgeneration Santa Fe ahead of the new model’s public debut at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2018. The Korea automaker claims that its new Santa Fe will boast “class-leading roominess” thanks to an overall length of 4 770 mm (up 80 mm) and width of 1 890 mm (an increase of 10 mm), plus an asyet unspecified “longer wheelbase”. The first images shows the new Santa Fe from a front three-quarter angle, giving us a proper look at the latest interpretation of Hyundai’s so-called “cascading grille” and the sort of twin-headlamp set-up first seen on the Kona. As previously reported, the brand says the new Santa Fe will offer a “comprehensive package of Hyundai’s latest active safety features”, including rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist and safety exit assist (the latter temporarily locking the doors should the system detect vehicles approaching from behind). Expect Hyundai to reveal more details at the new Santa Fe’s official world premiere later in February, ahead of its Geneva debut in March. carmag.co.za

THE first Jaguar D-type to be assembled by Jaguar Classic, an engineering prototype, will make its world debut at the Salon Retromobile show in Paris this week. Just 25 new examples of the D-type will be meticulously hand-built at Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works in Warwickshire, UK. In 1955 Jaguar planned to build 100 D-types. With only 75 completed, Jaguar Classic is now fulfilling the company’s original ambition by creating 25 all-new, period-correct sports cars. The iconic D-type won the Le Mans 24 Hours race three times between 1955 and 1957, and every aspect of the D-types built for clients from 2018 will be created to authentic, original specification. “The Jaguar D-type is one of the most iconic and beautiful competition cars of all time, with an outstanding record in the world’s toughest motor races. And it’s just as spectacular today,” said Tim Hannig, Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director. “The opportunity to continue the D-type’s success story, by completing its planned production run in Coventry, is one of those once-in-a-lifetime projects that our world-class experts at Jaguar Land Rover Classic are proud to fulfil.” The D-type is the third continuation vehicle from Jaguar Classic, complementing the six missing Lightweight E-types completed in 2014-15 and nine XKSSs built in 2017-18. Jaguar Classic experts’ painstaking research, with exclusive access to original Jaguar engineering drawings and records, ensures each new Dtype will be built to the authentic specifications laid down by competitions

PARIS - "Grid kids" are replacing "grid girls" in Formula 1 as the motorsport series continues to change ahead of the new season. F1 says youngsters from motorsport clubs, who for example are already competing in karting, will stand alongside drivers on the grid before races this season. 'What better way to inspire the next generation' Monday's announcement comes after the series last week ended the long-standing practice of using women on the grid, and on the podium with the top three drivers, because this no longer fits in with F1's values and societal norms. The latest initiative is joint venture by the FIA — motorsport's governing body — and F1's owners. FIA President Jean Todt says "Grid Kids" gives "future champions of our sport the opportunity to stand alongside their heroes." Sean Bratches, F1's managing director of commercial operations, adds: "What better way to inspire the next generation of F1 heroes." F1 is owned by Liberty Media, which is changing the way the sport is run since taking over from former commercial rights holder Bernie Ecclestone in January 2017. The season starts on March 25 at the Australian Grand Prix. Wheels24.co.za ED: This is a sad day indeed. No more eye candy! It is probably also discriminatory against the girls. Time will tell.

ONE positive consequence of the financial crash in 2008 is that buyers have steadily become more knowledgeable and more value conscious. The 10 most important features to highlight to potential buyers of your home include: 1. Central location Many potential buyers these days are trying to cut down on commuting, so if your home is centrally located close to offices and shops or is well served by public transport, don't forget to say so. 2. Security system Whether you live in a suburb or a gated estate, prospective buyers will all be interested in what security measures you have in place, so don't forget to note items such as automated garage doors, electric fencing, a CCTV system, electronic beams, and motion-sensitive lights or alarms. 3. Proximity to schools Schools are a major issue for most parents these days, and will be a draw card for many potential buyers ,provided of course that your home has the space to accommodate a family. If the property is close to a university, college and shops or a large local employer, you should also highlight that. 4. Eco-friendly features Eco-friendly features such as a solar geyser or heat pump, rainwater tanks, a pre-paid electricity meter and LED light fittings are gaining importance. These will especially appeal to young buyers who are increasingly environmentally conscious, as well as retirees looking to save on electricity bills. 5. Technology-friendly

Properties with features such as a smart home security system or a fast fibre-optic internet connection will of course attract young buyers, but are also likely to appeal to families and those who run home-based online businesses. 6. New kitchen Modern finishes are attractive, especially for families who spend a lot of time at home or anyone who loves to cook. 7. Floorplans This will really appeal to those buyers who follow the latest home design trends, but will also help anyone who comes to view your property to feel “at home” and immediately start envisaging how they could live there. 8. Entertainment area Entertainment areas will entice those who love to socialise with family and friends on weekends and holidays. Many young professionals and families will appreciate an attractive braai area, lapa, pool, or even a large, open-plan living room that gives them space to entertain. 9. Great view If you are lucky enough to have a great view, it is likely to have a universal appeal, so make the most of it, especially on show days and during viewings. Open the curtains that show it off, or set up an al fresco table on the patio or balcony that provides the best vista. 10. Garden This will really appeal to those looking for a more outdoor space, or to those with a “green thumb” who are looking for space to grow their own vegetables, herbs and spices. However, you must make sure your oasis is water wise.
