Thaba Chweu faces legal action for parked amounts


feedback meeting was held on the 26th of August for the community and rate payers of Mashishing, conducted by the Legal Advisors from CALS (Centre for Applied Legal Studies at Wits University). The meeting was regarding the parked amounts which appear on the residential household municipal accounts. It was also about the basic charges and the billing system. They also discussed the municipal financial bill, and the basic charge newly implemented by the municipality. Since multiple payments were not captured on the municipal system when people paid, the residents that were defrauded have been assured that the matter will be investigated and that the matter will be resolved. The legal advisers gave feedback to the community regarding the legal case they are pursuing against the municipality. “The legal adversors from CALS are currently in a process of collection information, detailing people who have been affected. For instance being charged a basic charge and you have outstanding (parked) amounts on your bill. This is done to persue the matter and assist the community in rectifying all the problems that have been experienced. And to persue a legal case against Thaba Chweu,” said Mr Selby Mahlangu, Committe Coordinator. The failure of the billing system at Thaba Chweu resulted in the arrears (or parked amounts). Wits will help the community to sort this out. This also applies to the greater Lydenburg area. A meeting will take place at the council buildings in the near future, as everyone who has a municipal account could be affected.

Die kleuters was baie beïndruk en opgewonde oor die perde. Die Lydenburg Honde Eenheid het ook saam besoek afgelê vir polisie bewustheid. ~ Michelle Boshoff

HE DA has laid criminal charges against Thaba Chweu Municipal Manager, Mr Surprise Maebela and Technical Services Head, Thabo Pheeha. The charges stem from the municipality's continued failure to attend to raw sewage leaks in and around Lydenburg and as a result, polluting water resources. The DA has for months been engaging with the municipality over the sewage spills in Kellysville, Mashishing and Skhila, only to be

met by the Municipality's Technical Services Department's lack of commitment and will to address the matter. Raw sewage constantly flows into Voortrekker Street from a manhole at the entrance to Extension 2, forcing pedestrians and motorists to cross through sewage on their daily commute. The sewage ultimately flows into the Dorps River, posing a health risk to impoverished residents of Skhila, who use the water for their daily needs. This matter has been reported to the Human Rights Commission and they are very pleased that it agreed to investigate. After three failed attempts to meet with the municipal manager and technical director the HRC decided on Thursday 15 August 2013 to continue with its inspection, and did so in the company of DA councillors. The DA will continue to monitor the situation and ensure that those who are putting the lives of Thaba Chweu's residents at risk are brought to book.

POLISIELEDE in uniform bly darem ’n mooi gesig. Dit was weer so vir die kleuters van Dwergieland Kleuterskool in Lydenburg. Die Middelburg Berede Eenheid en die Lydenburg Honde Eenheid het verlede week Dwergieland en Lyden Rust Pre Primary besoek om die kinders meer van die polisie te vertel. Onder meer dat ‘niemand aan hulle mag vat nie’, is die polisie se noodnommer gegee en om altyd te sê as iemand hul seermaak. Kol. Heymans is voortaan hierdie twee skole se ‘Adopt-A-Cop’ en hy sien baie uit daarna om by die kinders te gaan kuier en te help waar hy kan. ~ Michelle Boshoff

It is time to get your tax returns in order If you are an individual, or if you run an SME, there are two basic ways to get your tax done. The first is to log on to the SARS e-filing website and submit your tax returns yourself. The second is to find a registered tax consultant or tax service to help you submit your returns. SARS e-filing is a free, online process for the submission of tax returns and other related services in a secure online environment. Once you are registered for efiling you can visit SARS online for the submission of returns, declarations and payments in respect of taxes, duties, levies and contributions. e-Filing also allows you to submit a variety of tax returns including VAT, PAYE, SDL, UIF, Income Tax, STC and Provisional Tax through the e-filing website.

“While e-filing makes it very easy to submit your tax returns on your own”, explains Somaya Khaki, SAICA's Project Director at Tax Suite, “it is always a good idea to use a professional tax consultant to submit your returns for you if you are uncertain about anything. Making sure that you are compliant will reduce the likelihood of being audited by SARS and may increase your chances of receiving a refund if deductions are available that you were unaware of ”. Here are some general tips to keep in mind: General tax rates on the profits of small business corporations are as follows: R0 – R67 111 (0 %) R67 112 - R365 000 (7%) R365 001 – R550 000 (21%) R550 001 + (28%)

If you supply any of your employees with a subsistence allowance for their business travels, these allowances are tax-free if your employee is obliged to spend at least one night away from his/her usual place of residence and if they do not exceed the following amounts: R319 per day for meals and incidental costs for travel within the Republic; R98 per day for incidental costs only within the Republic; Severance benefits which you might have paid out to your employees in respect of the relinquishment or termination of their employment (for either attaining the age of 55 years, due to incapacity through sickness or other ailment, or retrenchment) are taxable in accordance with the following table: R0 to R315 000 (0%)

R315 000 to R630 000 (R0 + 18%) R630 000 to R945 000 (R56 700 + 27%) R945 000+ (R141 750 + 36%) If you have acquired any intellectual property, the costs incurred (i.e. other than developing or creating) can lead to tax rebates from 5% (for inventions, patents or copyrights) to 10% (for designs). Intellectual property costs not exceeding R5 000 may be deducted in full although no deductions are available in respect of trademarks. You should contact a professional tax consultant or tax service you can find registered tax practitioners at”.

DIT is voorwaar ’n tragiese vingerwysing na ons samelewing as ’n skoolhoof, neuroloog, onderwysers en sakelui hulleself moet vermaak met kinderpornografie. Gesiene mense. Of jy dit wil weet of nie, die beginsels hier ter sprake is dieselfde as geweld teen vrouens, kindermishandeling, oorgawe aan drank, of bedrog. Ons is kamma erg geskok oor dit kinders betrek, maar die onderliggende sielkunde rondom sulke misdaad is dieselfde. Wat gee aanleiding daartoe? Is dit die

risiko? Die verbodenheid daarvan? Ons maak dit af en sê die ou is geestesongesteld. Maar my weersin teenoor ’n ou wat wat sy vrou slaan, of verkrag, wat bedrog pleeg om te kan kompeteer is dieselfde. Hoekom gebeur sulke dinge? Die sielkundiges het baie antwoorde van ’n vernielde jeug tot groepsdruk. Maar hulle het nie oplossings nie. Ek dink dit begin as ons klein is en ons doen dit ook aan ons kinders. Van kleins af word seuntjies gedruk om rugby te speel, vinniger te hardloop, die spies verder te gooi en akademies te presteer. Hy moet sy maatjie wen, sodat sy pa kan spog. Dogtertjies word opgetof en modelletjies gemaak om

hulle ma’s goed te laat voel. Dit alles begin voor skool. In die skole word dit verder gevoer. Onderwysers wat nie aan die prestasie psige deelneem nie is nie goeie onderwysers nie. ’n Skool wat presteer kry die ryk ouers. Prestasie teen alle koste. Alles is geldgedrewe. Seuns wat seëls versamel is sissies. Dogtertjies wat nie snuif nie is nie cool nie. Ouers stuur hulle kinders weg van die huis na duur privaatskole want hulle wil net die beste vir hulle kindertjies hê. Maar in die proses ontneem hulle hulle kinders van ’n gesonde gesinslewe. Van die langsame koestering van eie belangstellings in ’n nie kompeterende omgewing, tot meelewing en ondersteuning soos wat die natuur mense wil laat grootword, is daar geen sprake nie. Ons is prestasiegedrewe. Ons druk ons kinders en dit word deel van hulle psige. Wanneer hulle groot is, moet hulle die voorsprong behou. Die belangriker pos, duurder motor, luukser huis, elke ding. Dit is hoekom hulle vrouens slaan, aan die suip raak en bedrog pleeg. Om bo te bly! Darwin se idee van die diereryk. Ons verstaan nie mense is anders nie. Die druk is eenvoudig te hoog!


ie artikel van Dooie Luislang 22 Augustus was verkeerd geidentifiseer. Dit is ’n Burmese luislang (Python molurus bivittatus) en nie 'n Suid Afrikaanse luislang nie. Dit kom nie natuurlik in Suid Afrika voor nie. Tog word hierdie reptiele vrylik beskikbaar gestel in troeteldier winkels vir aanhouding. Dit kan gevaarlik wees, aangesien dit tot 5 meter lank kan word, en prooi tot op jong bokkies of self honde en katte kan vreet. In aanhouding kan baba's 'n moontlike prooi word, en verkeerdelike aanhouding kan nadelige gevolge hê. Hierdie groot konstriktors word sonder aanhoudings permitte verkoop, en in ander wêrelddele het dit al groot probleme veroorsaak. - Bydrae deur Neels Bothma.

‘Groen’ ligte by Gert en Andre Elektries die antwoord

EK het sowat 12 jaar gelede al die gewone outydse ligte (gloeilampe) in en om my huis met energiebesparende CFL gloeilampe vervang. Die vergelykbare CFL gloeilamp het net 20W per gloeilamp verbruik, vergeleke met die 100W per lig van die outydse lampe. Die CFL ligte hou gemiddeld ook 10 keer langer as die outydse gloeilampe. My besparing in krag was baie groot. Van sowat 5 000W vir 50 gloeilampe af na slegs 1 000W. Oor die afgelope ses maande is ek egter besig om al die CFL gloeilampe met LED ligte te vervang. LED is nie skadelik vir die omgewing soos die CFL gloeilampe wanneer jy hulle weggooi nie. Hulle is ook veel skerper, gebruik die helfte die krag van die CFL gloeilampe en hou

nog langer. Hulle bly ook koel. Op my 20 buiteligte is my verbruik nou slegs 200W en wanneer ek klaar is, sal die totale verbruik vir al my ligte val na slegs 500W, teenoor die oorspronklike 5 000W. Dit is ’n besparing van sowat 90%. Die LED ligte is wel duur teen sowat R210 per lig, maar die kwaliteit van die ligsterkte is spierwit, hulle hou baie lank, is nie skadelik vir die omgewing nie en is so lig op krag dat niemand skuldig voel as ’n lig hier en daar aan vergeet word nie.

BACK in April 2013 Wheels24 caught up with William “Bill” Davidson, great-grandson of the founder of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle empire, at South Africa's Margate Bike Week (hosted by HD) and he alluded to the fact that 2013 was proving "something of a cracker” for the company. Shareholders even got a dividend, he told us, "something that not every motorcycle manufacturer was able to do in the current global financial climate". Davidson intimated at the same that there was some great news ahead [focusing on next year’s ambitious line-up, 2014], and true to his word an announcement came earlier this week to just what exactly customers could expect from the largest motorcycle company in the world and most definitely due in South African Harley-Davidson showrooms over the next few weeks. A four-years-in-the-making strategy plan codenamed Project Rushmore has now reached fruition with new front-to-back styling, a new twincooled engine (on some models) and more – apparently as a direct result of feedback collected from the millions of Harley-Davidson riders from every part of the globe.

The Harleys look good and offer a particular lifestyle bike, but are not really my cup of tea. Once you have ridden an adventure bike, nothing even comes close. Andre Coetzee

In a nutshell, Project Rushmore aims to open up riding – and specifically touring/crusing – to a new generation of riders with significant improvements over earlier models to deliver an even better riding experience. (Although “Bill” Davidson was only in South Africa for a couple of weeks he still managed to get away from all the paperwork and tour a small part of the country on one of his motorcycles – two up at that – and is certainly qualified to understand what civilised motorcycle touring is all about and why we love this form of motorcycling so much in SA.) Current owners and prospective customers can look forward for starters to refreshed Fat Bob styling, a new CVO (customer vehicle operations) Softail Deluxe and 1200 Sportster range that will have anti-lock brakes as standard – excluding the 883cc Sportster models for now. The Sportster line up will also feature new hand controls and brake components, improved service access, and an HD Smart Security System with a proximity-based, hands-free, security fob. Seven additional touring models and a trike have been upgraded for model-year 2014 – most of which will have Bluetooth-enabled Boom! Box infotainment systems and satnav, Daymaker LED headlights, a new fairing with "splitstream" venting and a Twin-Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103 (1690cc) power train that’ll be standard fare on all H-D Dyna and Softail units from now on. There are also improvements to many of the components found in the current range in this The Company's 110th anniversary year – some of which are arguably just aesthetic, such as the reshaped Tour-Pak saddlebags with convenient One-Touch design elements, sleeker mudguards, lighter cast-aluminium wheels and intuitive hand-control switches.

– we did kind of expect that from HarleyDavidson, didn’t we! DAVE FALL Wheels24.

GM South Africa has announced that the booted Opel Astra will make its way to South Africa in October. The new variant has a boot that measures 460 litres, 90 more than the hatchback. By folding the 60:40 split rear seat, its maximum utility space grows to 1 010 litres. The range will be made up of the 1,6 Essentia, 1,4 Turbo Essentia, 1,4 Turbo Essentia AT and the rangetopping 1,6 Turbo Cosmo. The entrylevel naturally aspirated 1,6-litre found in the Essentia model has a power output of 85 kW and

NO, Cyril, it's not the next-generation Batmobile, it's the future of GM's ailing Opel nameplate - a brave attempt to resurrect the brand as a cutting-edge technology showcase. This is the Monza Concept, which will be seen in public for the first time at the Frankfurt motor show in September, complete with LED projection infotainment and an evolution of the Ampera's extended-range electric powertrain. The 4.69 metre-long, four seat Monza's dramatic shape is all about sweeping contours and precise, crisp edges; the sides are shaped to enable easy entry and exit for front and rear-seat passengers, while emphasising the rear wheel-arches, which are the same width as the front. The sporty roof line - 1310mm high at its highest point - runs in a semi-circle like a classic coupé but, just before reaching the tailgate, sweeps slightly upwards to create a 500-litre boot, while the gull-wing doors reveal the absence of Bpillars. Instead of conventional monitors, each providing different information, there's a wide, sculpted dashboard - a single projection surface that sweeps

torque of 155 N.m at 4 000 r/min. The turbocharged 1,4litre engine delivers 103 kW and 200 N.m, while the force-fed 1,6-litre unit pushes out 132 kW and 230 N.m. Specification should be similar to the hatchback, so expect a full audio system with radio, CD, and fix auxiliary connection, air-conditioning, a multitude of airbags, Isofix anchorages and central locking all as standard. Overseas, this vehicle comes fitted with Opel’s Advanced Forward Lighting (AFL+) system with bi-xenon headlamps and a number of sophisticated lighting functions, including variable light distribution, curve light, cornering light and highbeam assist. Also on international models is the marque’s FlexRide system that offers the driver three suspension settings (Standard, Tour and Sport). Pricing will be made available closer to the local launch.

from door to door, with information and decorative elements displayed according to the driver's needs or mood. The continuous, adaptable multi-functional display has 18 LED projectors and uses the same technology as the big-screen projections at major events, although this is the first time the principle has been adapted for use in a car. It's operated by voice control and steering wheel controls. The system also offers three connectivity modes - Me, Us and All. Me disconnects the driver's phone from the car so they can focus on driving, Us enable the driver to reach a selected group of family, friends and emergency services while All connects the car to the entire virtual world, allowing the driver to, for example, share the details of his intended route online to create a whole level of car-sharing. The Monza Concept's modular design makes provision for a variety of powertrain options, but in this case it has the electric drive of the Ampera, with a new turbo-charged one-litre, three cylinder, direct-injection SIDI engine, running on clean-burning compressed natural gas, to power the range-extending onboard generator.

THE facelifted Audi A8 has been revealed. This refreshed grand saloon comes with more powerful engines, new assistance systems and innovative new LED technology for the headlights. The overall design of the updated Audi A8 hasn’t been tinkered with too much. Main changes include a revised front bumper, front grille and sculpted bonnet. The main exterior changes are the new headlamps. The new Matrix LED lights are available as optional extras. At the back there are flatter tail lamps and a new-look bumper.

steering adjustments when necessary, and the park assist system with 360 degree display, which handles steering when parking. The new head-up display projects important data in the driver’s field of vision on the windshield, while the night vision assistant can recognise larger animals in addition to pedestrians.

The new headlights incorporate indicator lamps that feature LEDs that light up sequentially in the turning direction. Audi explains its facelifted A8 headlight technology: “Each headlight contains 18 lightemitting diodes arranged in a strip that is subdivided into seven blocks. Each taillamp contains 24 LEDs in eight segments, which are used to dynamically indicate the turning direction. During flashing, the blocks are sequentially activated at 20-millisecond intervals, from the inside outwards in the desired turning direction. After 150 milliseconds, all segments are bright; for another 250 milliseconds they illuminate with full intensity. Afterwards, the turn signals go dark before repeating the lighting sequence.” Inside the A8 is luxurious with ventilated front seats that come with a massage function. There are various options available to make the A8/S8 even more upmarket. These include individual electrically-adjustable rear seats that can be paired with a leather wrapped centre console in the A8 L. The dimensions of the regular A8 remain the same at 5 140 mm long, 1 950 mm wide, 1 460 mm high and a wheelbase of 2 990 mm. The A8 L, however, is 13 centimetres longer and wider. Both models come with a new boot layout that Audi claims makes for easier loading. Internationally, there are two petrol and two diesel engines on offer. These are the supercharged 3,0T FSI with 228 kW, the V8 twin-turbo 4,0T FSI with 320 kW, the 3,0 TDI clean diesel with 190 kW and the 4,2 TDI diesel with 283 kW and 850 N.m.

So, is this the ultimate luxury car? Ignoring super cars like Lambo and Bugatti and looking at this specific class, I certainly think so. The A8 has always been understated and not flashy. I want one! Andre Coetzee

The 3,0 TDI diesel units are said to be the most efficient with a consumption figure of 5,9 litres/100 km and a CO2 emissions figure of 155 g/km. For those wanting more luxury, there’s the top-of-therange A8 L W12 Quattro. The 6,3-litre petrol engine under the bonnet produces 368 kW and consumes 11,7 litres/100 km of fuel. Those in want of more power can opt for the 380 kW S8. This Quattro allwheel-drive car can reach 100 km/h from standstill in 4,2 seconds. Rounding off the range is the A8 Hybrid. This model makes use of a 2,0T FSI and electric motor to produce a combined output 180 kW and 480 N.m of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via Audi’s Tiptronic transmission. Audi claims that this variant consumes 6,3 litres/100 km of fuel. Audi has equipped its A8 with the Audi Drive Select system, which varies the function of various technology modules, as standard. It also controls the adaptive air suspension with adaptive damping. As expected, there is a range of assistance systems available as options. The adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function is coupled with an expanded version of the standard Audi pre sense basic safety system. There are also new features such as active lane assist, which makes slight

Think about the right property at a young age MOST people buying residential property these days are not only thinking about having a pleasant, convenient place to live, but also about building wealth and getting ahead in life. However, Jan Davel, MD of the RealNet estate agency group says the most likely way to build real estate wealth is by 'holding' property for long periods of time, preferably 10 years or more and that simply does not coincide with the lifestyles of many young people. He says gone are the days of the mid-20s marriage followed quickly by two or more children and a second or even third property purchased by the time people were in their late-30s. “Young people now tend to move around much more in their 20s than their parents did, often to better their careers before they settle down, and many also carry heavy student debts. Others just don't want the responsibility and expense of homeownership,

including upkeep and additional payments such as levies, rates and taxes or insurance.” Davel says the latest statistics

from the mortgage originators show that the average age of first-time buyers is now between 35 and 36, and First National Bank recently noted in its Property Barometer that the 'oldies' who are selling and downscaling to smaller properties are key drivers of market activity at the moment. This is good news for the buy-to-let property investor, says Davel. He says young people are staying in the rental property pool for eight to 10 years longer than they used to, and with the backlog in home building over the past few years, and demand continuing to rise as more people enter that pool, there is already a shortage of rental units in many areas. This of course means that both rentals and the capital value of rental properties are rising and that is no doubt why they have seen buy-to-let purchasing start to rise again, from 3.5 percent of all property sales in 2012, to around eight percent this year, he says. However, he says it is becoming increasingly important for such investors to ensure that their assets are managed by agents who are properly qualified to do so. “Landlords who decide to self-manage and save a rental agent's monthly management fee often end up losing a great deal more than that because they were not able to vet a new tenant properly and get the correct credit information, or because they did not ask for a big enough deposit, or because they receive no rental income for several months while going through the

Davel says a good managing agent will help them to understand all of this and ensure that they stay on the right side of the law.

Padlangsdag gaan groot

Lydenburg Hoërskool het die afgelope Vrydag hul Padlangsdag na die dorp geneem en al die kinders se opgewondenheid was aansteeklik vir al die motoriste en mense op straat. Wel gedaan Mnr Loots en sy Hoërskool Lydenburg leerlinge en personeel.

Erfenis, die spil waarom die verlede en toekoms draai Verskaf deur die Mpumalanga Historical Interest Group. Prof. Cobus Ferreira skryf: Na aanleiding van die artikel oor Albasini, vind hier by aangeheg 'n stukkie oor Albasini waarin daar enkele feite voorkom wat minder bekend is. Die stukkie kom uit Sagres & Suiderkruis. Kontak o f b e s o e k w w w. r o u t e s m p . c o . z a

Portugese vise-konsul, handelaar en kaptein van die Magwamba: Volgens João Albasini se biograaf, J.B. de Vaal (1914-1989), is hy op 1 Mei 1813 in Lissabon gebore as die seun van António Augusto Albasini en Maria da Purificação. Navorsing deur ? Portugese historikus, Ilídio Rocha (1925-2002), het later aan die lig gebring dat Albasini in werklikheid op 26 Mei 1812 aan boord van ? geankerde skip in die hawe van Lissabon gebore en in die Igreja de São Lourenço gedoop is. Hoewel sy ouers Portugese onderdane was, was sy vader ? Italianer van Tirol wat in 1807 na Portugal geëmigreer en ? skeepskaptein geword het, terwyl sy moeder van Spaanse afkoms was. Op sewentienjarige leeftyd het die avontuurlustige Albasini sy studies aan die Aula do Comércio laat vaar en besluit om ? handelaar aan die Ooskus van Afrika te word. Hy was reeds in 1831 in beheer van ? handelsdepot in Lourenço Marques en het onder meer by slawehandel betrokke geraak en dié praktyk tot ongeveer 1850 voortgesit. Dit is onseker of Albasini in Lourenço Marques was toe Louis Tregardt (17831838) op 13 April 1838 daar aangekom het, maar in Julie 1839 het Carolus J. Tregardt (1811-1901) en Albasini wel oor en weer vir mekaar dokumente as getuies geteken. Teen daardie tyd was die twee avonturiers reeds goeie vriende. Gedurende die winter van 1842 het die Voortrekkerleier A.H. Potgieter (1792-1852) en 27 man van Potchefstroom Lourenço Marques besoek om met die Portugese Goewerneur te onderhandel oor die stigting van ? nedersetting nader aan die kus, wat die volgende jaar tot die stigting van AndriesOhrigstad gelei het. Sedert 1845 het Albasini gereeld handelstogte na dié

Boerenedersetting onderneem. Albasini het slegs twee jaar op Magashulaskraal gewoon en toe na Rustplaats naby Andries-Ohrigstad verhuis en ? winkel op die dorp geopen. In 1848 het A.H. Potgieter en sy volgelinge besluit om hulle aan die voet van die Zoutpansberg te gaan vestig, maar Albasini het nie aan hierdie verhuising deelgeneem nie. Toe Ohrigstad in 1850 weens malaria ontruim en Lydenburg gestig is, het Albasini daarheen getrek. Op 6 Maart 1850 is João Albasini op Lydenburg deur landdros Jacob de Clerq (1791-1881) en twee heemrade met Gertina (Gerrie) Maria Petronella Janse van Rensburg (1832-1906) in die huwelik bevestig; ? egverbintenis waaruit António Augusto (*1853), Susanna Elisabet (*1855), Maria Magdalena (*1856), Martha Magdalena (*1859), Lukas Willem (*1862), Jan Jakob (*1865), Gertina Maria Petronella (*1867), Hendrika Maria (*1869) en Anna Sophia (*1874) gebore is – die begin van ? Afrikaanssprekende familie Albasini. In Augustus 1853 het Albasini na Zoutpansbergdorp, wat in 1855 tot Schoemansdal herdoop is, verhuis en ? winkel daar geopen Albasini was ? groot voorstander van Portugese handelsbetrekkinge met die Boere en het selfs ? lang verslag oor die voordele daaraan verbonde opgestel en aan die Portugese owerheid in Mosambiek gestuur. Dit was hoofsaaklik op sy inisiatief dat ? Portugese handelsending van Inhambane, onder leiding van pater Joaquim de Santa Rita Montanha (c.1806-1870),

Zoutpansberg in 1855-1856 besoek het om handelsbetrekkinge met die Boere aan te knoop. Hoewel die sending nie besonder suksesvol was nie, was dit die eerste bousteen vir latere traktate wat tussen die regerings van die ZuidAfrikaansche Republiek en Portugal gesluit is. In 1858 het João Tavares de Almeida, die Goewerneur-generaal van Mosambiek, Albasini vereer deur hom die pos van Portugese visekonsul in die ZAR aan te bied; ? aanbod wat hy met graagte aanvaar en sy ampspligte na behore uitgevoer het, hoewel hy geen vergoeding daarvoor gekry het nie. Hy het ook daarin geslaag om Portugal in die ZAR te verteenwoordig sonder om die belange van Portugal opmerklik bo die van die ZAR te bevorder. Albasini het as vise-konsul met trots ? donkerblou uniform en ? swart hoed, albei met goue koordversierings, gedra. Later het geblyk dat dit ? ou admiraalsuniform was en dat Albasini nie geregtig was om dit te dra nie. So gesteld was Albasini op sy amp, dat hy elke keer die uniform aangetrek het voordat hy die diplomatieke korrespondensie oopgemaak het. In ? rondawel, wat as sy kantoor gedien het, het die Portugese koninklike wapen gehang en op openbare feesdae is die Portugese vlag gehys. Van sy tydgenote het Albasini waarskynlik die grootste invloed op inheemse mense in die oostelike Laeveld van Mosambiek en Transvaal gehad. In 1859 is Albasini deur wnd. pres. Stephanus Schoeman (1810-1890) van die ZAR as Superintendent in die distrik Zoutpansberg aangestel. In 1864 het daar skermutselinge tussen die Boere van Zoutpansberg en die Venda uitgebreek. Een van Albasini se grootste begeertes was dat die grenslyne tussen die ZAR en Mosambiek vasgestel moes word en hy het dit ook in korrespondensie aan die Portugese owerheid beklemtoon. Jare daarna, in 1869, is die Portugese konsul-generaal in Kaapstad, Alfredo Duprat (1816-1881), na die ZAR gestuur om onder meer oor grensvasstelling te onderhandel. Duprat het Albasini nie in die saak geken nie, waaroor hy natuurlik erg in sy eer gekrenk was. Onwetend dat Duprat en pres. M.W. Pretorius (1819-1901) reeds oor die grense onderhandel het, het ? tweede Portugese Diplomatieke Kommissie, onder leiding van Carlos Pedro Barahona e Costa (1833-1876), in Potchefstroom aangekom om ? Traktaat van Vrede,

Vriendschap, Handel en Grenzen met die regering van die ZAR te sluit, maar is later deur die Goewerneur-Generaal van Mosambiek teruggeroep. Teen hierdie tyd was Albasini ? arm en gebroke man. Die regering van die ZAR het hom kompensasie beloof vir die verliese wat hy in Zoutpansberg gely het, maar hy het dit nooit ontvang nie. Hy is wel as resident-vrederegter, Naturellekommissaris en lid van die Distriksraad aangestel, wat hom ? skrale inkomste besorg het. Olifantjag vir ivoor was ook nie meer ? winsgewende bedryf nie, want die troppe was grootliks uitgedun. Albasini was kort en stewig gebou en het as ou man ? lang wit baard gehad en ? wyerandhoed gedra wat met volstruisvere versier was. Sy woorde en gesigsuitdrukkings het van sy welwillendheid getuig en by elke ete was daar altyd ? ekstra bord gedek vir ? onverwagte gas. Hoewel Albasini die Boere se taal nooit heeltemal vlot kon praat nie, het hy tog as vertaler opgetree wanneer onderhandelinge tussen die Boere en die Portugese owerheid van Mosambiek plaasgevind het. Albasini het ? beroerte-aanval gekry wat hom vir meer as ? jaar aan sy bed gekluister het totdat hy op 10 Julie 1888 op Goedewensch gesterf het. Hy is begrawe op die plek waar sy rondawelkantoor gestaan het en waar hy sy amp as vise-konsul van Portugal met soveel toewyding volvoer het. *** Geselekteerde bibliografie: J.B. de Vaal, “Die rol van João Albasini in die geskiedenis van Transvaal”, Argief-jaarboek vir SuidAfrikaanse Geskiedenis, 16 (1) (Elsiesrivier: Staatsdrukker, 1953); J.B. de Vaal, João Albasini (1813-188) (Johannesburg: University of the Witwatersrand - Camões Annual Lecture No 3, 1982); W.J. de Kock & D.W.

Monise Odendaal (21) is ’n IFBB Fitness Bikini deelnemer. Ek was die 10 Augustus in Sekunda gekies om deel te wees van die Mpumalanga span. Ons gaan van die 4 tot 7 September in Port Elizabeth deelneem aan die Suid Afrikaanse Kampioenskappe. Ek was nog altyd dol daar oor om fiks en gesond te wees. Van 16 jarige ouderdom het ek baie streng begin gym en gesond eet. Ek kyk alewig hoe ver ek myself fisies kan druk en probeer om 'n ultimate healthy lifestyle te lewe so ook ander mense die voordele daaruit te leer. Om deel te neem aan IFBB kompetisies is 'n droom wat waar word. Dit is 'n groot eer en trots om my provinsie te verteenwoordig in Port Elizabeth.

Die twee dames benodig hulp om aan die kompetisie in PE te gaan deel neem. Vir meer inligting skakel JJS Connection Health by 013 235 1539.
