Watermonsters dui op E. Coli in Lydenburg

A

friForum is besorg oor die gesondheid van Lydenburg se inwoners, nadat uitslae van toetse op watermonsters op die teenwoordigheid van E.Coli in die dorp se kraanwater gedui het. Volgens Leon de Jager, voorsitter van AfriForum se Lydenburg-tak, word rioolprobleme al ’n geruime tyd ondervind, wat aanleiding gee tot besorgdheid oor die gemeenskap se gesondheid. “In die lig van die kwellings wat rondom gesondheid ontstaan het as gevolg van die munisipaliteit se gebrekkige dienslewering en onlangse rioolstortings, was ons genoop om watermonsters van die watertoevoer na ons huise en op ander strategiese punte te neem om die risikofaktor te bepaal,” het De Jager gesê. AfriForum het die monsters by ’n laboratorium, wat by die Suid-Afrikaanse Nasionale Akkreditasiestelsel (Sanas) geakkrediteer is, vir analise ingedien. “Die E. Coli-telling van monsters wat uit die Sterkspruit geneem is, sowel as van monsters wat van ons huise afkomstig is, het die maksimumvlakke oorskry. Die E. Coli-vlakke laat besorgdheid oor menslike gesondheid ontstaan,” het De Jager gesê. “Dienslewering is nie op standaard nie en laat kommer ontstaan of die watersuiweringsaanleg na behore bestuur word. Behandeling met chloor sal help om die vlakke van die E. Coli-bakterie te verlaag, maar die watermonsters wat geneem is, toon dat die water nie doeltreffend behandel word nie,” het De Jager gesê.

“Dis heerlike lente, die winter’s verby...”

AfriForum dring daarop aan dat die munisipaliteit die gemeenskap oor die gesondheidsrisiko waarsku en onmiddellik skoon drinkwater aan die gemeenskap voorsien. Die munisipaliteit moet ook vorendag kom met ’n aksieplan waarin aangedui word watter stappe geneem sal word om die probleem op te los en waarin hy hom tot sperdatums vir die onderskeie stappe verbind. “As die plan nie volledig is nie, sal verdere stappe teen die munisipaliteit geneem word,” het De Jager gesê.

Wat is nou mooier as ’n helder foto om die begin van lente aan te kondig. Hierdie foto is geneem deur mnr. Johan Taljaard van Burgersfort by die Skukuzakamp in die Krugerwildtuin. Dit is ’n inskrywing vir die Highlands Panorama Foto Van die Maand Kompetisie (in samewerking met Longtom SuperSPAR, PNA, Konica Photo Express).

AfriForum sal die situasie bly monitor.

Water Infrastructure challenges in Mpumalanga Province THE MEC for the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), Mr Madala Masuku, has responded to a legislature question on water infrastructure challenges in the province. He indicated that the Department is working closely with the Department of Water Affairs. These challenges are mainly historical and are a result of poor planning in the past that did not accommodate prospects of growth in our communities. Water infrastructure in towns, townships, white farm areas and homelands were designed differently with urban areas having good infrastructure while black townships had poor infrastructure. The aging of old apartheid infrastructure cannot provide service to the growing formal and informal settlements that have emerged after the dawn of democracy. Some municipalities have challenges regarding operations, maintenance and capacity of their Water Treatment Plants. Addressing these challenges remains the priority of government. Premier David Mabuza and MEC Madala

Masuku have visited areas that are hard-hit by these challenges. CoGTA, working together with the Department of Water Affairs and the Mpumalanga Economic Growth Agency (MEGA) are hard at work to address these challenges. The Department of Water Affairs has identified a number of projects that have been included in municipalities Integrated Development Plans (IDP) for 2012/13. Through the Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) municipalities will also implement projects to eradicate water backlogs in the 2012/2013 financial year. These municipalities are Bushbuckridge, Thaba Chweu, Chief Albert Luthuli, Msukaligwa, Dr JS Moroka, Emakhazeni, Thembisile Hani and Mkhondo. These Municipalities will utilise 70% of the total MIG allocation for water provision. In conclusion the MEC indicated that these interventions should be completed in 2013. As an interim measure in areas where there is an acute water shortage, water tankers are being utilised to alleviate the challenges. Issued by the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs.

from the Town Dam in the river by pipe and furrow via the fisheries to the water treatment plant in Morgan Street, from where it is pumped to the 2 concrete reservoirs at the Museum pump station. From here there is a pipe connection to Mashishing, the old part of town and to the pump that must pump the water into the High Steel reservoir in the pump station yard. The Heads and Sterkspruit are fed from this high steel reservoir and the problem is, council cannot keep it full and they cannot give us a reason why. They blame the fisheries for opening valves not water to come through the waterworks, Spraak-, Taalterapeut & allowing or they simply cannot explain. They do not Oudioloog maintain the pumps. We are now repairing and Gehoorapparate, replacing one vertical spindle and one borehole pump on their behalf. There is no senior engineer Gehoortoetse & that takes responsibility or who you can talk to Spraakprobleme when phoning them on this issue.

Pieterse There is only one borehole, which is on our land, currently feeding the high reservoir at the Tel: 013 235 3855 Heads/Museum pump station. This inflow is too little to feed Sterkspruit as well as the Heads. We Viljoenstraat 36, Lydenburg Reg oorkant die Mediesesentrum will be installing and commissioning a 2nd borehole pump this week. It is impossible to get an answer from Council why their pumps are not working. We will approach Council to install intermediary water tanks between the boreholes and the High reservoir from where we can pump up to the Sterkspruit reservoir in an effort to keep it filled at all times.

Martiens van der Merwe from Lydenburg writes: Firstly, please direct your queries regarding water to the THABA CHWEU LOCAL MUNICIPALITY. Sterkspruit Estates and the Home Owners associations are trying their utmost best to intervene with the problems experienced lately. The problem according to Council is with their supply to the Museum pump station reservoir. The water comes

Gemeenskap moet hande vat en TCM reg ruk DIT is nou tyd om bo partypolitiek en ideologie uit te styg en as ’n gemeenskap hande te vat om Thaba Chweu reg te ruk. Dit was verlede Dinsdagaand die boodskap van mnre. Anthony Benade, Sifiso Ngomane en mev. Sonja Boshoff, van die Demokratiese Party (DA). Tydens die vergadering, wat ook deur ’n groot groep begeesterde swart mense bygewoon is, is terugvoer gegee oor die administrasie van die plaaslike Thaba Chweu Munisipaliteit. Geen vordering of verbetering met die lewering van dienste kon gerapporteer word nie. Die DA het die swak bestuur van die munisipaliteit al met die P r o v i n s i a l e We t g e w e r, d i e S e n t r a l e R e g e r i n g , d i e Menseregtekommissie ens. opgeneem, maar die ANC steur hulle nie hieraan nie. Dit is ook te betwyfel of ’n vierde Administrateur die munisipaliteit sal kan regruk. Lydenburg was al drie keer onder administrasie, sonder enige verbetering. Die Regering en sy aanhangers is met binnegevegte oor wie watter pos moet beklee besig, terwyl inwoners gebuk gaan onder geen dienste, riool in die strate, strate wat uitmekaar val, HOP huise wat aan ANC ondersteuners toegeken word, stygende kostes, onwettige kragafsluitings ens. Hierdie situasie gaan nie verander nie, tensy die ANC in Thaba Chweu verslaan word. Dit sal verder vererger en die volgende plaaslike verkiesing is nog ver. Volgens mnr. Benadie is daar net een opsie oor. Die hele gemeenskap moet saamstaan en soos een man teen die plaaslike Raad opstaan en ’n plaaslike verkiesing afdwing. Dit kan slegs gebeur indien die hele gemeenskap vir eens hulle onderlinge verskille en kleinpolitiek opsy skuif en verenig in ’n reuse stem teen die ANC in Thaba Chweu. Dit is in elke burger, inwoner, of besigheid, ongeag ras, kleur of geloof se belang dat ons nou saamstaan en die stadsraad vervang met een wat in die belang van almal sal optree. Die DA sal eersdaags met hierdie veldtog begin en wil almal se steun en voorbidding hê.

The beneficiaries of the wheel chairs are: Zakhele Signey Shabangu (7), Patrick Mandla Seganye (34), Thembi Mofokeng (49), Arnot Sedibe (46), Amos Bobby Viljoen (62), Samuel Mankge (14) and Mmadi Kobotana Maria (76).

THE Thaba Chweu Municipality, working together with Two Rivers and the SABC, handed over eight wheelchairs last Thursday to very deserving people. The event was well attended and everyone was very relieved that they were going to be helped. Roll players in TCM and the Community attended the event. Thank you to each and every person who made it possible.

Help for quadriplegics Barry Botes from Ama Wheelies writes: Good news: Lotto advised in newspapers we must apply for sports funding and we have a short period in which to submit funding applications! The Ama Wheelies sport club is going ahead and we are seeking funding from Lotto. We will seek funding for sports wheelchairs and also athletes racing chairs. (boosting our long distance athletes, the wheelchair basketball players for paraplegics and chairs for the quadriplegics playing wheelchair rugby). Our Ama Wheelies sport club can only function in full co-operation and with the support of the municipality. Lotto provides the opportunity for us to receive funding (we are not dependant on the municipality for finance) however we must have structures in place. Herewith our 2 requests for help: 1. A site visit was made to Ama Wheelies by Thaba Chweu Municipality, who came and saw for themselves how desperately we need premises! Please advise progress on premises in town for we studied the location and hall and we like their proposal. The hall and land we propose to develop, build our accommodation and utilize the hall to further our wheelchair sports. Availing the hall to Ama Wheelies will give us a home for quadriplegics in Lydenburg. It will be the first of its kind in Mpumalanga and it will boast a sports centre. We will have a better chance of receiving funding from Lotto if the premises is secured and we are sure you understand the reason of our appeal on a speedy but favourable decision granting the hall to Ama Wheelies. The opportunity to apply for Lotto funding is restricted to once every two years as stated in newspapers. It is vital that our application is as correct and complete as possible and hence our appeal for help. Lotto also makes provision for municipalities to apply and receive funding to develop sport and we will gladly cooperate to our mutual benefit. We have reached out to other stakeholders and persons within the municipality for them to also know about our plans, as we also need their support. For more information or help phone Barry Botes at 079 875 5040.

10 uit 10 vir Hoorhierso Mnr. M. de Kock van Lydenburg skryf: Ek wil net vir Michelle Boshoff, julle redakteur, gelukwens met haar Hoorhierso rubriek van verlede week. Dit was gepas, pittig en die waarheid. Ek as ’n ‘tradisionele man’ kan ook nie insien wat Pres. Zuma met sy uitlating probeer doen het nie. Welgedaan Michelle, jou Hoorhierso is altyd puik.

Betaal vir twee huise se krag GS Bosch van Lydenburg skryf: Ek het my skok Maandag agtergekom hoekom my elektrisiteitsrekening so hoog is. My kragboks in Viljoenstraat word gebruik om twee huise se krag te meet. My kragrekening beloop duisende per maand. Ek hoop nadat ek Maandag mense van die munisipaliteit by my huis gehad het, dat hulle dit sal kan uitsorteer. Hulle het vir my gesê hul rekenaarlisensies is al vir twee weke nie betaal nie. Dit is ook hoekom hulle sukkel om die nuwe huis wat ek in Brownstraat gekoop het, se rekening te kan oopmaak vir die voorafbetaaldekrag. Volgens werknemers van die munisipaliteit het hulle teen Maandag (3 September) nog nie salarisse ontvang nie.

Foundation of learning Entheos Christian School writes: In response to your “Die Outoppie se Kommentaar” article of 22 August , we, as staff at Entheos Christian School, would like to invite Mr Outoppie to visit our school at his earliest convenience to see what can be accomplished when strong academic and Bibilical principles are used as a foundation for learning. We feel that we fare quite well against your criteria for a good school. We offer education in both English and Afrikaans. We start our children on Computer lessons in Microsoft Office from Grade 2 up to Gr 12. Our Senior Students do Accounting, Skillspro, IT, and CAT as subjects. We have also started a new online reading program with students from Grade 12. With regards to Environmental issues – we are the First school in Lydenburg to start a Recycling Collection facility. We believe that we enforce good social skills and behaviour by following the 60 Character Traits of Christ as a guideline for social etiquette. Our students have entrepreneurship experience from very young by organising their own class bake sales every Friday. Our senior students have Life Orientation as a subject and we practice a program called His Servants from Gr 0 to Gr 12 which helps our children to be aware of themselves and others and how they can affect the environment as well as gives spiritual guidance. Our students from Gr 8 to Gr 12 do projects in Carpentry, Arts and Crafts and Metal Work for a Student Convention in Bloemfontein and can actually go to America if they qualify. We have Character building comic strips in all of our workbooks (PACE's) which explain and give an example of a Character Trait of Christ. Once a term we do Orals across the board from Gr2 to Gr 12, subject chosen by student and/or Teacher as well as in Science and Social Studies. We also have group projects and orals that the children must complete before handing in their PACE to do the Test.

Ama Wheelies empowers quadriplegics Barry Botes from Ama Wheelies writes: The Rehabilitation Department of Lydenburg Hospital has been involved with Ama Wheelies, ever since the Lydenburg area was chosen as the climate best suited for quadriplegics. To obtain maximum quality of life, persons with spinal cord injuries, should be able to participate in society after rehabilitation has taken place. Suitable accommodation and care for disabled persons, especially quadriplegics, are extremely hard to come by.

Uit die Woord From the Word NUMERI 13:18 Bekyk die land, hoe dit is, en of die mense wat daar woon, sterk of swak, min of baie is, O n s Va d e r, b e k y k o n s l a n d e n b r i n g v e r l i g t i n g v i r a l die ellende wat daar is -Amen

DIE OUTOPPIE SE KOMMENTAAR

Die moeilikheid sit dik VIR geruime tyd al sit ek en kyk en lewer kommentaar in hierdie kolom op hoe die ANC se droom uitmekaar val. Ek het geen politieke verbintenis met ’n bepaalde party nie, want ek vertrou politici nie. Maar die mense is gatvol vir die ANC. By Marikana het hulle duidelik hulle afkeur aan die ANC getoon en eerder na die ander mal mannetjie gaan luister. Hier by ons val munisipale dienslewering uitmekaar

Besides Ama Wheelies, Mpumalanga does not have any other accommodation for quadriplegics. Instead of being a burden on society, Ama Wheelies will empower quadriplegic to take their rightful place in society. It is therefore of paramount importance that Ama Wheelies be assisted to attain their goal of setting up a self-maintaining/income generating facility.

en die mense in Mashishing wat kwaad is hieroor, maak die besighede seer en verniel infrastruktuur. Ons het nie hulle politieke leiers ingestem nie, so waaroor het hulle ’n aksie met ons? Hulle het vir dié mense gestem, so hoekom fokus hulle nie hulle woede op die regte plek nie? Maar miskien doen hulle, want waarom moet hulle eie leiers met lyfwagte rondloop? Gewapen. Wie gaan hulle, (die lyfwagte) die wapens teen gebruik? Teen ons? Ons dreig nie om hulle te brand nie, hulle eie mense doen. So hulle eie mense gaan geskiet word as hulle hulle leiers bedreig! Wat se logika is dit? En hulle luister vir die mal mannetjie. Dink

A

l die veld is vrolik, al die voëltjies sing, dis heerlike lente en al sulke dinge. Hier galop 'n goggatjie, daarso dans 'n mier soort van ding. Hierdie gesegde (bo aan rubriek): “Only when the last tree has died and the last river is poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise that we can not eat money” (Indian wisdom), het my ma afgeskryf in Franschhoek op 'n salige vakansie. Sy het altyd die gewoonte om mooi aanhalings en gesegdes in restaurante af te skryf. So kom mens op baie oulike sêgoed af en dit is 'n lekker manier om terug te dink aan 'n sekere restaurant of koffiewinkel. Met dié dat die lente nou in almal se koppe is, het ons weer oor die gesegde gepraat. Juis nadat Checkers Saterdag Spekboompies aan al hul kliënte uitgedeel het, spesiaal vir Lentedag. Dit was 'n puik idee. Die Spekboompie is juis 'n plant eie aan ons omgewing, die Spekboomrivier, Spekboombrug en verskeie lodges is na hierdie unieke boom vernoem. Om volhoubaarheid aan te kweek is dit nodig dat besighede ook 'n stuiwer in die armbeurs gooi en bydra tot natuurbewaring. Die Spekboom is die Boom van die Jaar. Wikipedia (internetbron) sê: “Die Spekboom (Portulacaria afra) is 'n vetplant met kleinerige blare. Dit kom algemeen in die ooste van SuidAfrika voor. Dit word ook in die Karoo van die Wes-Kaap aangetref. Die Spekboom is immergroen en word ongeveer 2.5 meter hoog. Die stam, wat tot 20cm dik word, het 'n kurkagtige voorkoms. Die blare is helder groen, vleserig en eiervormig. Soos die boom ouer word, word die blare gelerig. Olifante eet graag die boonste blare van die boom, wat veroorsaak dat dit horisontaal uitsit. Vir die rede staan die boom ook as Olifantskos bekend. Spekboom het 'n besonderse vermoë om groot hoeveelhede koolstofdioksied uit die lug te neem en na suurstof om te skakel. Een hektaar Spekboom kan gemiddeld 4.2 ton koolstofdioksied per jaar na suurstof omskakel. In die opsig is Spekboom tot 10 keer meer effektief per hektaar as 'n tropiese reënwoud. Die blare van die Spekboom kan deur mense geëet word. Dit kan in tye van nood as 'n voedselbron aangewend word en is ook geskik vir gebruik in slaaie. Die blaartjies het 'n effens suur, suurlemoenagte smaak.” Chatter away in “Letters to the Editor” ‘Twiet’ jou gedagtes in “Briewe aan Ja, dis heerlike lente en al sulke lekker dinge. die Redakteur” Gaan grou in die tuin en sit op die gras.

hulle met sy rekord gaan hy beter doen vir hulle as hy eers die mag het? Dink weer. Laasweek se DA vergadering was belangrik. Dit gaan nie meer oor die DA of die ANC of die VF+ nie, dit gaan oor ’n plaaslike gemeenskap wat dik is vir die gemors. Dit gaan oor ’n gemeenskap wat moet saamstaan om sy eie huis in orde te kry. Hier, in Thaba Chweu. En om hierdie rede moet ons dalk verby die klein politiek kyk en die DA gebruik om ons huis in orde te kry. Die kiesers (voters) is baas! Ons het mos ’n demokrasie? Gebruik daardie demokrasie en kry iemand anders om die dorp beter te bestuur. En as hulle nie werk nie, kry ons iemand anders. Dit gaan nie baie moeite kos om ’n beter alternatief as die huidige in plek te kry nie. Doen dit!

Rabies Vaccination free of charge World Rabies Day 28 September 2012 “THE Rabies virus is mainly transmitted by the bite of an infected animal. Animals infected by the virus are characterised by behavioural changes, abnormal salivation, aggression, abnormal vocalisation, progressive paralysis and inevitably death. Rabies is fatal for man and animal,” explains Dr. Marietjie Malan State Vet from the Directorate Veterinary Services. However, the disease can only be confirmed by submitting a brain sample from the infectious or suspicious animal. In South Africa not all human deaths are reported, because the disease is often associated with witchcraft. Rabies is responsible for laboratory deaths of between 10 and 40 people each year. Most victims are children under the age of 10 years,” says Dr. Malan. Pet owners are compelled by law to ensure that their dogs and cats are vaccinated at three months of age against rabies. The vaccination should be repeated within 12 months and then every three years. In high risk areas animals should be vaccinated annually,” advises Dr. Malan. All dog and cat bite wounds to humans should be reported at the nearest hospital and the state veterinarian should be informed, for investigation of suspect animals and their Rabies vaccination history. Thaba Chweu's Rabies Week will entail information dissemination and vaccination of pets free of charge. Dr. Malan advises owners to ensure that dogs will be on leashes and cats are manageable (orange bag or pillow case).

Help moms and babies in the maternity and NICU Patients at State hospitals and clinics in South Africa are typically destitute, malnourished, as well as being very sick or injured. Many are jobless, many are homeless, and many have no loved-ones to provide the basic needs for them in hospital. The Ruth Mailbag Group strives to provide for the needs of destitute moms and babies in the maternity and NICU of our local state hospital and several other hospitals in our country who have asked for our help by providing them with a basic baby pack for their new and or sick babies. If you can assist please get in touch with us through joy.coetzee@gmail.com or visit our blog at http://theruthmailbaggroup.blogspot.com/ for more information.

Topklas basaar Entrepreneurs spog met kwilts OP Saterdag 1 September 2012 het die Gereformeerde Kerk van Lydenburg 'n baie geslaagde basaar by die NG Moedergemeente Kerk gehou. Daar was baie lidmate van ander kerke wat ook die basaar bygewoon het. 'n Goeie gees het tussen die basaargangers geheers. Die stalletjies is druk besoek. Andri Rousseau het gratis musiek verskaf en onder andere ou FAK liedjies is saam deur die besoekers en werkers by die stalletjies gesing. Die Vetkoek Fabriek was ’n groot trekpleister.

Ds Abel en Cobie Steyn eet smaaklik aan die heerlike vetkoek. Die pannekoek stalletjie is druk besoek.

DIE Sizanani Groep van Lydenburg het agt jaar gelede hulle Bernina masjiene aangekoop en kry nog altyd uitstekende diens. Mnr. Johan Botha hou die masjiene in stand en me. Petro Botha bied gereeld nuwe klasse en denkrigtings vir hulle aan. Petro gee ook spesiale klasse aan Magdalene Mnisi (heel regs) Magdalene deel dan al die kreatiwiteit met die res van die Sizanani groepie.

BETWEEN 17 and 21 September 2012, attorneys participating in the National Wills Week will draft basic wills free of charge. Only a new basic will will be drafted - no amendments to existing wills. An appointment must be made with a participating attorney or firm. Why must you have a will? By making a will you ensure that your assets are disposed of in accordance with your wishes after your death. This privilege is called "freedom of testation". Why should an attorney draft your will? Attorneys are professionals qualified in law. An attorney can advise you on any problem which may arise with regard to your will. Often a will is not valid because the person who drafts it does not have the necessary legal knowledge to ensure that the requirements

of the law are met. What happens to your estate if you die without a valid will? If you die without leaving a valid will, your assets will be distributed according to the provisions of the Intestate Succession Act. The provisions of this Act are generally fair and ensure that your possessions are transferred to your spouse and children. The following problems may arise if you die without leaving a will: Your assets may not be left to the person of your choice; It can take a long time to have an executor appointed. The executor who is appointed may be somebody you may not have chosen yourself. There can be extra and unnecessary costs. There can be unhappiness and conflict among members of your family because there are no clear instructions on how to distribute your assets.

FREE BURGER!

Cnr Potgieter & ’n Veldbrand met vlamme van meters hoog het amper ’n groep inwoners in Lydenburg ontkant betrap. Die brand het laatmiddag verlede week uitgebreek en dit is deur die MTPA (Lydenburg Visserye) en personeel van ’n buurplaas gemonitor. Die vuur het vasgebrand teen voorbrande wat reeds deur die MTPA gemaak was. Hoofnatuurbewaarder, Frik Rousseau, het genoem dat hierdie ’n goeie voorbeeld is dat voorbrande noodsaaklik is.

IN their continuing efforts to save the jobs and livelihood of Pilgrims Rest residents, the DA today launched the Save Pilgrim's Rest trust fund, in a town of immense historical significance. The trust will be used to fund the operational costs of the legal representation of 17 applicants in their dispute with the provincial Department of Public Works, whose questionable tender processes have compromised not only local businesses, but the jobs and job security of over 130 workers and their dependents. Every job matters, and with most jobs in South Africa being created by small and medium enterprises in South Africa, the DA will not stand idle and watch jobs being destroyed. While the Mpumalanga government continues to hamper the prosperity of small businesses, the DA believes that small business will pioneer job creation in South Africa, and Pilgrims Rest is no different. The DA therefore appeals to all South Africans, who care about Pilgrims Rest, its heritage and the jobs of residents, to contribute generously to the fund, for purposes of covering legal costs. The details are as follows: Steenkamp Trust, Absa Bank, 4070045154, Ref: Pilgrims. Phone Willie Venter Provincial media liaison 082 319 6666.

DA challenges ANC to by-election in Thaba Chweu THE Democratic Alliance (DA) challenges the ANC to dissolve the Thaba Chweu Municipal Council, and face an election in all wards of the municipality. Governance in this municipality has ceased to exist, and the quality of life of its residents deteriorates on a daily basis. Water and electricity supply is unreliable, roads are disintegrating, sewerage systems are dysfunctional and the municipality's billing system is in chaos. Corruption and maladministration is the order of the day, and despite having been under administration three times in the past six years, the ANC has lost all ability to govern this municipality. The mere fact that the recently orchestrated protests were focused around the ANC's choice of mayor, rather than the crippled service delivery, expose the true priority of the ANC, namely access to resources. The DA firmly believes that the ANC, both locally and provincially, have run out of ideas to save this municipality, and is unable to do so. Last week, during a DA hosted public meeting, residents of Thaba Chweu in conjunction with the DA, resolved to request cooperative governance MEC Madala Masuku to dissolve the Thaba Chweu local council in terms of section 139(1)(c) of the

09

Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, and that fresh elections be declared in each of the municipality's 14 wards. This community decision follows the continued deterioration of the municipality and community since the DA's last meeting held in February. It has become apparent that no level of engagement with government will result in the improvement of services in this municipality, as once again we were inundated with bitter complaints of a municipality headed for self-destruction. The recent resignation of five ANC ward councillors and subsequent withdrawal thereof exposes the ANC's fear of facing elections against the DA in this municipality. Our growth in Thaba Chweu has been substantial and we are confident that we will not only retain our current wards, including Graskop – which we recently won from the ANC – but that we can credibly challenge the ANC for control of this municipality. In light of the above, the DA will write to MEC Masuku, asking him to invoke Section 139(1)(c), and in awaiting his action, the DA will continue assuming certain service delivery functions, which we already have, in preventing the total collapse of this municipality and all its communities.

The water is not chlorinated and therefore free chlorine, monochloramine and trihalomethanes were not analysed. Mycrosystin analysis was not necessary

What to do in your garden in September • Prune and shape any frost-damaged plants. Towards the end of the month, pinch back plants like Fuchsias and Daisy bushes to encourage them to be become more bushy. • Prune back spring flowering shrubs only when they have finished blooming. • Remove old leaves and feed bearded irises, cannas and daylilies. • This is the last chance to lift and divide perennials. • Divide overcrowded water lilies and replant in rich soil. • Remove old spent winter flowering annuals and replant with summer annuals. • Mulch soils to add essential organic matter. • Service irrigation systems. • Feed strawberry plants with fertiliser Wonder 3:1:5 or an organic alternative Vita Veg and Herb Fertiliser. Feed roses with Neutrog Sudden Impact or try Ludwigs Vigorosa. • Feed spring flowering shrubs like Camellias, Azaleas and Gardenias. Feed lawns with Wonder 3:2:1 SR 9kg, Neutrog Rapid Raiser or Vita Lawns and Foliage. Increase your watering on lawns. • Plant summer flowering bulbs like coloured arum lilies, amaryllis, eucomis, nerine, zephranthus, crocrosmia, dahlia, tigridia, gladioli, tuberose and others. • Sow vegetable seeds of cucumbers, tomatoes, marrow, carrots, peppers, chillies, Swiss Chard, beans, basil, cabbages and brinjals.• Plant vegetable and herb seedlings like spinach, curled parsley, red onions, red cabbage, brussel sprouts, lettuce varieties and flat leaved parsley. Lawn and Order: Your main challenge in spring is when you

because the water did not contain any visible algal bloom. 2. The evaluation of the results does not form part of the SANAS Accreditation Schedule. 3. The colour concentration, as well as E. Coli count of the Sterkspruit 241 and house 241 samples exceeded the maximum limits. Colour is an operational parameter and does not impact on human health, but the E. Coli levels are of concern for human health. Residual chlorine will help reducing these bacteria levels. The very low dissolved salt content of these samples is normally an indication of corrosive properties. (Released by AfriForum).

have to shake off the winter blanket/thatch (in horticultural terms "thatch” is the build up of dead matted grass which prevents water and fertilisers from penetrating the soil), vigorously from your lawn. Thatch can be removed by using a good strong metal rake. Alternatively you can hire a lawn spike aerator. Once you have removed all the thatch, you will need to mow your lawn. A short close mow is what you are looking for so set your mower really low. (* This is ideal for Kikuyu lawns, other lawn varieties do not require low cuttings.) Once that is done, and if you need to level out any depressions in the lawn, you will need to fill in with a good quality, weed free lawn dressing. This will also improve the soil structure and will add essential organic matter. Water well. Next is your fertilising programme. Choose a fertiliser high in nitrogen like Wonder 3:2:1 SR 9kg, Neutrog Rapid Raiser or Vita Lawns and Foliage. Water well after fertilising and wait for a growth explosion! (www.gardenshop.co.za).

Don’t write off the rotary engine - yet MAZDA has re-committed to the rotary engine concept for the future, with several rotary-powered projects in the pipeline. Rotorheads worldwide, who get very upset when you call them Wank(el)ers, feared that the rotary had spun its last when production of the iconic RX-8 ended in June, until Mazda boss Takashi Yamanouchi let some Toyo Kogyo cats out of the bag at the Moscow motor show. He said the company would release a range-extended electric car as early as 2013 (albeit initially only in Japan and only on lease) with a compact rotary engine in the boot to charge the batteries. Rotaries, he admitted, had efficiency issues under acceleration (and on the overrun, when raw fuel tends to get flushed out of the exhaust ports, to the detriment of the planet and the owners' fuel bill) but the range-extender concept overcame that. “We can keep it spinning at its most efficient 2000rpm, while also taking advantage of its size.” But he wouldn't say whether the rotary/electric extended-range car would be new or based on an existing model, although it's known the Mazda has in the past built experimental range-extended vehicles with both petrol and hydrogen-powered engines. Yamanouchi is not a bean-counter - he's an engineer, and a big fan of rotary engines. He said the reason he joined Mazda in 1967 was because it was working on rotaries, and he wasn't about to give up on them. “We continue to explore ways to improve the fuel efficiency and capabilities of t h e r o t a r y engine,” he said. “so it can be the primary power source of a car again.” motoring.co.za

Defender soldiers on LAND Rover Defender customers seeking a higher level of specification can now enhance their vehicle even further with three additional options and a choice of two new body colours, Barolo Black and Havana. Options of a new premium seat design, upgraded in-car entertainment and a choice of four new contrast roof colours are now available to Defender customers. Substantial improvements were made to the specification last year, including introduction of the 2.2-litre diesel engine, ventilated discs, and detail improvements to the interior. Smart new, contrast roof colours can now be chosen against the majority of the Defender paint palette. In addition to the standard Fuji White, customers can now opt for Santorini Black, Indus Silver, Orkney Grey or Firenze Red. The Firenze Red can be chosen with the Santorini Black roof and the Baltic Blue with Indus Silver or simply retain their body colour. Premium part leather seats are available to the driver and front seat passenger, sporting the Land Rover logo on the backrest. An integrated, centre stitch line on the headrest is also visible and adopted to the current standard seat in the Defender. The base audio system for the Defender has a single-slot CD player, USB, Aux jack and 4x50W amplification with an optional audio upgrade available for Bluetooth connectivity with remote microphone. A plain black Pick Up hood is also available as an option and a plain beige hood for the 110 Double Cab Pick Up. Both options are in addition to existing styles. All models have tinted glass. The 2.2-litre diesel engine replaced the 2.4-litre diesel in 2012, matching it for power, torque and fuel consumption, whilst a full acoustic engine cover replaced the previous splash cover, reducing radiated engine noise and improving driving refinement. The new diesel engine produces 90kW @ 3,500rpm and torque of 360Nm @ 2,000rpm, CO2 emissions on the combined cycle are 266g/km for the Defender 90 and 295g/km for the 110 and 130. The GFT MT 82 six-speed gearbox has an excellent ratio spread, high top gear for cruising and enhanced low-speed crawl capability. The lower first gear offers low crawl speed making towing on-road and off-road much easier. The low-down engine torque also helps in-gear acceleration and the tall sixth gear ensures excellent real-world cruising, refinement and fuel economy. Ground gears in both the gearbox and transfer box help contribute to the refinement of the transmission. The Defender's facia continues to be based on a single, large moulding supported on a robust steel rail to help eliminate squeaks and rattles. The instruments provide clear, concise information to the driver with LED illumination. Versatile stowage shelves are conveniently located for both the driver and passenger and a large centre console provides an impressive 14 litres of stowage. A powerful heating and ventilation system is designed to cope with the most extreme climates and features aluminium plate and fin heat exchangers to deliver impressive performance. The 110 Station Wagon, 110 Double Cab Pick Up and 130 Crew Cab models, can comfortably accommodate three occupants on an asymmetrically-split second row seat. The Station Wagon derivatives have a spring-assisted fold mechanism which helps when folding the seats and when carrying large or awkward loads. Defender 90 Station Wagon second row occupants benefit from a pair of individual, full-size,

forward-facing rear seats. Providing excellent comfort levels, these seats are also available as a third row option on the 110 Station Wagon. Accessed either through the rear door or by folding the second row seats, they can be easily folded and stowed sideways in the loadspace. Defender's unique vehicle architecture remains unchanged. The chassis frame is available in three different wheelbases and in both standard and heavy-duty guise (for even greater load-bearing capabilities). A total of 14 separate body styles – from pickups and soft-tops to crew cabs and station wagons – are produced on the mainstream production line. Beyond this, Land Rover's Engineered To Order team offer a range of products from standard drop-side or boxbody conversions to bespoke design and build adaptations.

Hyundai Hot Hatch is coming! HYUNDAI is preparing to unleash its 137kW turbocharged Velostar in Europe.

Leather upholstery and an 18cm touchscreen satnav system incorporating the infotainment and reverse parking camera monitor are standard. The non-turbo Veloster was scheduled for launch in South Africa in 2012, Hyundai SA's

The Velostar Turbo is the first vehicle to feature Hyundai’s new 1.6-litre T-GDI engine equipped with a high-compression ratio and a twin-scroll turbocharger. The engine produces 137kW and has a peak torque figure of 265Nm (available from 1500-4500rpm) and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. It has a top speed, the automaker says, of 213km/h and sprints from 0-100km/h in 8.4 seconds. For more control than the standard Velostar, firmer dampers have also been employed. communications manager Deon Sonnekus told us, but this was delayed subject to Tony Whitehorn, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, said: “We believe the tests to determine the direct-injection engine's compatibility with local fuel. This has performance enhancements will further increase the Veloster’s appeal for drivers been done and "it's possible it could still be launched this year". who want the perfect combination of stand-out design, an engaging drive and the The 103kW 1.6 GDI (gasoline direct injection) is first in line and "approval for this efficiency and practicality of a traditional hatchback.” engine would open the possibility for the introduction of further derivatives, including The Velostar Turbo retains the standard car’s unconventional three-door the turbo, to SA".

As per tradition, once we’ve tracktested a vehicle we put it through our economy route – an 80km stretch of road that best demonstrates the extremities of real-world commuting. The undulating surfaces and fueldraining inclines can be disastrous for claimed manufacturer figures, but they did nothing but emphasise the versatile nature of the Honda Accord’s generous drivetrain, resulting in a personal best economy figure of 7.9l /100km. That said, I also managed to eke out 680 kilometres from the last tankful while equalling the claimed 8.8l /100km figure in the process.

Anthony Davis took this photo’s on the Long Tom Pass, which he called “winter's last stand”. “I am told that Thaba Chweu means 'White mountain' and this refers to the frequent frost seen on Long Tom Pass,” he said.

Lelievlei het ontstaan in 2004. Vir die eerste keer het Lelievlei 'n lentedans in die saal van Lelievlei aangebied. Die hele gemeenskap is genooi en inwoners buite Lelievlei het ook die lentedans bygewoon. Amelia Bietje, VF+ Vroueliga leier het die dans geborg. Omdat daar geen alkolhol in Lelievlei toegelaat word nie, het die inwoners bewys dat 'n persoon jouself kan geniet sonder alkohol inname. Die Direkteur van Leilievlei, Frik Rousseu, het Amelia bedank vir haar borgskap, sowel as die bestuurder, Kotie Cremer wat die lentedans gereël het.
