Hierdie foto is geneem deur een van ons lesers wat die humor met ons gedeel het. Niemand weet wie die onderskrif aangebring het nie. Maar dit heet “This road maintained by ANC”. Met die herrie wat landswyd losgebars het oor Lydenburg se paaie het iemand definitief die grap verder gevat. Dis nou nie ’n bikini foto in ’n slaggat nie, maar die eienaars van die pad se naam staan duidelik daarop. So ’n bêk met jam kry!

Michelle Boshoff A well-dressed man walked in to North Safety on Friday in Lydenburg posing as a client. This was his last attempt to try and get away from the police. The SAPS chased two suspects from Tzaneen and their final attempt at fleeing played out just after 08:30. Employees at North Safety saw the police cars coming to a screeching halt in Voortrekker Street and in Johannes Coetzer Street, in front of the building. An employee called for help from colleagues because she thought the suspects were trying to steal a delivery vehicle. The well-dressed man was wearing a light blue long sleeve shirt and jeans. While North Safety staff were speaking to Hennie van Staden and Michael Delport from North Safety are modest about catching the criminals on Friday, but their running did the trick. him they saw another suspect with a brown jacket running away. In a split second the suspect with the brown jacket started running towards the robot. Hennie van Staden and Michael Delport chased him down Lydenburg Street and caught him. They handed him over to the police. The police apprehended the other suspect at the office.

According to witness reports the suspects drove a silver Polo. They were allegedly involved in a cash-in-transitrobbery in Tzaneen. Rumours quickly started spreading through town that there was a shootout or that a nearby gunshop was robbed. And as rumours go, this was not true. But thanks to these two Lydenburg residents the suspects were caught.

Katjie wat agtergelaat is kry huis ’n Daad, wat as niks minder as wreed beskryf kan word nie, het ’n goeie nadraai gehad. ’n Vrou van Belfast het die katjie wat by die Wimpy agtergelaat is aangeneem. In die Highlands Panorama Nuus van 23 Januarie is berig oor die kietsie. Wimpy Lydenburg se kelners het die kietsie op die Spar parkeerterrein gekry en hom na die Sterkpsruit Dierekliniek geneem.

Die kat se eienaars het klaar geëet, in die kar geklim en weggery. Die kat is a g t e rg e l a a t . D i e koerant en veearts is oorval met navrae oor die kat. Dankie aan almal wat bereid was om die kietsie aan te neem. ~ Michelle Boshoff

Ondersoek duur voort Na die wrede dood van me. Charlotte Kruger (66) in Lydenburg verlede week word daar vermoed dat sy moontlik ’n hartaanval tydens die aanval gehad het. Polisie ondersoek ook die kans dat sy versmoor het weens lappe wat in haar mond gedruk is in die vorm van ’n muilband. Sy en haar man, mnr. Japie Kruger, is oorval deur twee rowers. Die saak word ondersoek. Die meenthuiskompleks is op die Sterkspruitplotte. Die gemeenskap berig dat dié gebied deurloop onder misdaad.

Rivierstraat in Lydenburg het ’n pompstasie wat gereeld onklaar raak. Die feit is dat rou riool dan by huise uitpomp wat laer lê. Die huis is aan die linkerkant van Viljoenstraat, soos wat by die dorp vanaf Dullstroom ingery word. Die pompstasie is al maande stukkend. Inwoners drieg om die stasie oop te kap en dat die gemors reguit rivier toe loop, dan dam dit nie meer in erwe op nie. Die stank is ondraaglik en dis ’n bron vir siekte om uit te broei. Thaba Chweu werk glo klaarblyklik daaraan. ~ Michelle Boshoff

Opinie oor mediese hulp Lydenburger skryf: Ons dorp spog met ‘n klomp dokters en hulle is altyd baie besig want siek pasiënte wat hul besoek is nie net van Lydenburg nie maar Dullstroom, Ohrigstad, Burgersfort en Steelpoort. Om ’n afspraak by hulle te kry vir dieselfde dag as wat jy skakel en by jou dokter, is byna onmoontlik. Jy gaan of ’n ander dokter moet sien of wag tot more. Hierdie praktyk is vrek besig en met almal met wie ek al gepraat het is dit eens dat dit voel soos ’n worsmasjien waardeur jy gaan. Jy wikkel om ten minste vyftien of meer minute vroeër as jou ooreengekome afspraak daar te wees, maar jy gaan nog steeds ’n halfuur langer wag as jou ooreengekome tyd van jou afspraak, want hulle is besig. Met al die bogenoemde in ag genome kan ek vir die lewe van my nie verstaan hoe so ’n besige praktyk dan nog steeds aansukkel met ’n x-straal masjien wat uit die vorige eeu dateer nie. Die masjien is meer stukkend as werkend. Waarheen gaan al die gelde wat die publiek en die mediese fondse betaal? Die dokters is mos eintlik daar om ons van diens te wees. Ek glo dis omdat die masjien so oud is dat soveel gebreekte arms, bene en enkels nie mooi raakgesien kan word nie en die diagnose verstuit eintlik gebreek moes gewees het, soos wat die MediClinic in Nelspruit bevestig het nie. Nog iets wat pla is dat as jy wel die dokter in sy spreekkamer sien, word daar gevra wat fout is en in baie gevalle word daar nie bloeddruk geneem, na jou hart geluister, in jou oë en ore gekyk nie. Met ander woorde jy is net daar vir ‘n voorskrif en dan moet jy gaan want die volgende pasiënt wag en hulle hardloop alreeds laat soos dit is met die afsprake. Laaste maar nie die minste - ’n vriend het na ure geskakel en die dokter op roep se antwoord was dat my vriend vroeër moes geskakel het want hy (die dokter) kom nou net van die spreekkamer by sy huis aan. Hoe bepaal jy wanneer jy nou moet siek word? By watter een van die dokters gaan kla jy oor al die bogenoemde en gaan hulle regtig werk maak van al die klagtes? Met als in ag genome is dit ons, jy en ek wat sorg dat hulle nog ’n bestaan kan maak. Maar alles is nie klagtes nie baie baie dankie Kobus Joubert van Joubert Apteek. In die tien jaar wat ons hier in Lydenburg is, was niks nog ooit te veel vir jou om vir ons te gedoen het nie. Dit sluit na ure en werkstyd in en jy is altyd daar met ’n glimlag om ons te help.

Everything is wrong here! Leon de Jager, Chairman TCBF, writes: The Thaba Chweu Business Forum was established to represent the Business Chambers of Lydenburg / Mashishing, Sabie and Graskop. These three towns fall within the Thaba Chweu Municipality's borders and are dependent on this municipality for services. The Premier of Mpumalanga, Mr. Mabuza, appointed a task team last year, about August, to intervene in this municipality as it was technically insolvent and completely malfunctioning (that after being placed under administration three times in the last eight years) The task team was instructed to come up with a turn around strategy within three months. The appointed task team was made up of three individuals seconded here by Mpumalanga Province and the Ehlazeni District Municipality, they were; Mr. Godfrey Nkosi, as acting municipal manager, Mr. Tumelo Ratau as acting CFO, and a Mr. Shrien as acting technical director. Without any communication to us as Business Chambers, Mr. Ratau (acting CFO) has “resigned” from the task team, according to our information because of serious clashes with Mr. Nkosi, and so the acting CFO position has been vacant since 01 January 2014. Mr. Shrien, (acting Technical Director) has also since decided to “return” to his previous position – so we are left with a Provincial Task Team of ONE ! That is Mr. Nkosi. We as Business Chambers within the three towns are being seriously frustrated by Mr. Nkosi – and as follows: He has instructed all municipal staff members that they may not communicate with the public, or release any information without his prior approval, he is managing like a dictator ! Just after the task team took over, Eskom served a termination of service notice on TCM because of their account with Eskom being over R 164M in arrears. It was only through a high court interdict against Eskom, obtained with the help of Afriforum, that we have managed to keep our lights on ! Mr. Nkosi is refusing us any information regarding the present status of the account with Eskom, we have “heard” that it has since increased to over R190M! The Chambers of Sabie and Graskop have arranged meetings with Mr. Nkosi to address service delivery problems unique to their towns. Despite confirming the meetings with his PA, he did not arrive at the meetings, no communication was received from him or his office in the form of an explanation or a apology. The waste removal and managing of the municipal dump sites in the three towns have collapsed. The appointed contractor withdrew his services at the three dump sites due to non payment by TCM during September 2013. Since then there has been no waste management or access control to the dump sites. The Dump site at Lydenburg burns frequently, releasing poisonous gases into the atmosphere. The “fires” are only doused when we have a good downpour of rain. When we try and address the dump site issues with Mr Nkosi, his response is “that it is under control” despite the fact that he, as municipal manager, is in contravention of legislation in this regard. There is no general upkeep and maintenance of the infrastructure in the three towns The streets in our towns are seriously dilapidated, potholes are growing like mushrooms. The supply of water is at best intermittent due to leaking reservoirs, burst pipes and poor management of water supply. The quality of water supplied is another concern. Ecoli was found in Sabie's municipal water during private tests done during December. Sewerage management is not done satisfactory, manholes in the towns are frequently overflowing, pump stations are not maintained, causing overflows in the streams and rivers, the water treatment plants at the sewerage works are not managed, causing raw sewerage spills into the rivers. This is a serious health hazard. Mr. Nkosi called a meeting with the developers and estate agents in Lydenburg about two weeks ago. He “accused” them of being responsible for the financial collapse of TCM, according to him they have been “milking” TCM in the past! He “accused” the developers of “getting richer” amidst a sea of poverty and told them they should employ more people! This is utter nonsense as TCM is very quick to “cut off” services if accounts are not paid. According to one developer, the meeting was more like a “lecture in socialism” than anything else! In conclusion I would like to say that Mr. Nkosi's management style is causing a growing divide between the business sectors and the municipality. We want to work together with the Council to improve service delivery in our towns, but the present arrogant style of Mr. Nkosi is not making this possible.

'n Judaskus. Dis waaroor als in SA gaan. Of dit 'n bladskud is op 'n onderhandeling en beide partye weet dis bedrog - of die veelbesproke kus tussen Helen Zille en Mamphela Ramphele. Ek kry die DA jammer, want hulle is van die begin af mislei. En Helen sê dis politiek. Maar mens soen nie mekaar amper op die mond voor nasionale media oor politiek nie. 'n Judaskus - dis al hoe ek dit kan beskryf. Met die e-Tol het partye ook bladgeskud oor bedrog. Miskien het iemand gevry ook oor die ooreenkoms - sal my nie verbaas nie. Die e-Tol sisteem suig. Daar is geen ander manier op dit te beskryf nie. Dis ’n vryery wat dat dit van stapel gestuur het. En dit los die res van die land met 'n bitter bek. Ander se gevry laat nie vir ander met 'n soetsmaak na nie. Van die Bybel-dae af was Tollenaars ongewild. Dit was iemand wat vir die regering geld moes kry van die Jode. Die Jode het gedink dat Jode wat tollenaars is, teen hulle eie volk werk, en die Jode het nie saam met die tollenaars geëet nie. En dis die Bybel se definisie. Vandag moet ons eet saam met die tollenaars en die tollenaars 'soen'. Want ons wil nie gesien word as mense wat demokrasie teenstaan nie. Ten koste van wat? Meeste mense kots al oor al die belasting. Ons betaal klaar belasting vir die onderhoud van die paaie. Dit is waar, maar nou is daar meer paaie om voor te betaal. Die e-Tol is hier om te bly, feit van die saak bly dat die nuwe paaie klaar gebou is. Iemand gaan moet betaal daarvoor. Daar is 'n waar sêding in "Jy kan seker wees van twee dinge in jou lewe; dat jy gaan belasting betaal en dat jy gaan sterf." ’n Judaskus - dat die lippe so klap en die spoeg so spat.

DAAR het jy dit nou! Helen Zille se gevryery na alternatiewe stemme vir die DA het nou in haar gesig ontplof, nadat haar huwelik met Agang se Ramphele in ’n ramp geëindig het. Wat ’n gemors! En in die proses dink ek, is daar erge skade in beide die DA en Agang aangerig.

Wys jou net. Dit bevestig net my persoonlike weersin in beginsellose politici, wat net daarop uit is om ten alle koste magsposisies te bekom. En die hele “boggerop” laat die korrupte ANC sekerlik heerlik in hulle “Jack Daniels Blue Label” lag. Vir wat het die onnosel spul in opposissiegeledere nie net ’n samewerkingsooreenkoms geteken nie? Die VF+ het dit onlangs met ’n klomp ander klein partytjies gedoen. Nie dat hulle almal saam

sterk genoeg is om ’n merk te maak nie, wat nogal jammer is, want ek kan verseker met van hulle behoudende beginsels saamleef. Bowendien dink ek Pieter Mulder is ’n ordentlike mens (so vêr as wat politici betref). So, lesers van hierdie kolom moet katvoet loop met die komende verkiesing. Gaan stem beslis, anders mag jy nie kla nie, maar stem tog die korrupte ANC uit, of verswak hulle sodanig dat ons sterker opposisie kan kry. Oppas egter vir die EFF, ek dink hier kom ’n ding. Die jonger geslag hou van die populistiese Malema, maar ek sê jou - hy is moeilikheid!

Waterval Onder & Boven/Torbanlea Farm Weltevrede Farm/old Mamre goldmine /Lime Kilns at Ngodwana Saturday 8 February meeting at 07:00 LEAVING the Kruger Lowveld Tourism office at Crossing the first stop will be at Waterval Onder to visit the Kruger House Museum. The group will be allowed to enter one of the original restored NZASM railway houses still occupied here. At Boven the tour will do a drive past the old corrugated station building restored some years ago and visit one or two of the original railway structures dating from the early 1890s. With the completion of the Eastern Line, Boven was an important halfway station between Lourenço Marques and Pretoria. Very few know that the recently restored Torbanlea Manor of the Halls family at Mataffin was actually named after their old summer farm on the back road between Boven and Machadodorp. The house on Torbanlea was burnt down by the Boers in the Anglo-Boer War due to Hugh Halls' support of the British occupational forces while being a burgher of the Transvaal Republic. A highlight will be a visit to the exquisite country manor of George Heys, on the highlands farm Weltevrede overlooking the Elands River Valley. Hays was also the owner of Melrose House in Pretoria. The house at Weltevrede was designed by British architect John Ellis in 1904. This is a unique example of a farmyard in the style of the arts and crafts movement of the time. The next stop is the last remains of the gold-mining village of Mamre, before going back down into the valley to view the three old lime kilns. For many years these were a prominent roadside landmark until dwarfed by the towering Ngodwana paper and pulp factory of later years. Vehicles with a higher ground clearance are required for this excursion. Contact Jan Minnaar on 013-741-2519 or Robin Bell on 082-603-0114 to offer room in your car or if you require a seat. Bring along a picnic lunch, a hat and some sensible shoes. Contact the MHIG at history@routesmp.co.za

THE latest version of the Kia Cerato Koup is indeed a beautiful car. The full designation is Kia Cerato Koup 1.6 TGDI. The TGDI stands for Turbo Gasoline Direct Injection. This is the latest technology turbo petrol engine with direct fuel injection. This translates into a phenomenal 152kW and 265Nm of torque, and this from a 1600 petrol motor! The engine is super smooth and quiet and moves the fairly big car with ease. Zero to 100 for instance takes just 7.7 seconds with a maximum speed of 224 km/h. We tested the 6-speed automatic model and although bigger and pricier that the 1.4 Turbo Astra tested last week, we had to compare. This is perhaps unfair, as the Koup should be compared to the 1.6 Turbo Astra GTC 2-door. Specification level is excellent. You have leather seats, six airbags, ABS, EBD, ESC, VSM, HAC, iPod (AUX) and USB in, full climate control, electronic windows (auto one push), electric, heated and folding outside mirrors, courtesy lights everywhere, electronic inside rearview mirror, HID headlights, LED taillights, power steering with flex steer adjustment and remote functions and adjustable for tilt and reach, Bluetooth, Cruise Control, alloy pedals, central locking with alarm and immobiliser, remote keyless entry, stop start button, paddle shifters (auto box only) tiptronic control, electric lumbar support, front and rear park distance control, reverse camera, LED daytime running lights, illuminated twin vanity mirrors, credit card slots, multifunction onboard computer, Radio / CD / and adjustable headlight beams, to name but a few. The doors are in typical coupe form frameless, and windows are tinted. An electronic sunroof is optional. And that is it. This car literally has everything that any car can offer. The price in the R330+K range might seem a bit steep, but let me assure you, it is a fullhouse car. So, how does it go on the road? Acceleration is brisk, as befits a turbo car. Four wheel disc brakes work very well. Handling at speed is good and the car is very quiet inside, even at speed. The engine turns at around 4 000 rpm in sixth at 180 km/h. At that speed the car is rock steady on the road and feels very safe. The driving experience is very pleasant. Suspension is neither too firm nor too soft. It is perfect. There is enough space for two adults in the rear, but as with any 2-door coupe, getting in and out is a bit of a chore. The boot is of sufficient size, but cannot be called large. Things that I liked: Top specification levels. Very comfortable seats. Good performance and safety levels. Beautiful car. Nice ride. Criticism: Very little. Large 18 inch alloys with low profile tyres not very practical for our poor quality roads. I would rather go for 16 or 17 inchers with more rubber. Go and check it out at Kia Lydenburg.

OP Saterdag 1 Februarie was die uwe, en my seun Pierre as gaste saam met Charl Van Rhyn en Gert Human van Mc Gee & Kie, Zwartkops toe vir die jaarlikse motorwedrenne van historiese en klassieke motors en motorfietse. Soos op die meegaande fotos gesien kan word, was dit motorhemel met meer 7-liter V8 motors as wat jy kan glo. Mustangs, Chev Can Ams, Ford Galaxies, Chevelles en elke ding. Lydenburg se Steven Colloty was onder andere daar met sy Datsun SSS en daar was Anglias, ou Cortinas, Cobras, BMWs, en ’n magdom Porshes. Geniet die fotos op hierdie bladsy en op bl. 14.

THE affordable hatch market could be in for a shakeup in about two months from now when Renault launches its new Sandero. An IOL staff member spotted a number of them on the back of two trucks over the weekend, on their way to Gauteng ahead of the vehicle's imminent introduction. The vehicles were evidently imported, which also suggests that Renault will no longer be building the Dacia-based hatch at Nissan's Rosslyn plant in Gauteng, at least for the time being. Renault remains tight-lipped about the specifics of the new Sandero, so for now we have to pick evidence from the European model, which has already been launched in Dacia guise. Slightly longer than its predecessor, it claims to offer impressive cabin space for five adults. Although it's still pitched as a simple and affordable vehicle, the new Sandero is more sophisticated than its predecessor and range-topping versions really pack on the luxury with items like a seven-inch touch-screen infotainment system with satnav, cruise control and leather seats. However, to keep prices down, the basic by 40mm. models are still, errr, rather basic. The local specs and That said, the square and chunky interior benefits from improved sound proofing the all-too-crucial pricing for the new and better-quality materials across the range. Sandero will be The engine range also caters for a wide range of budgets. More affluent buyers can confirmed closer to opt for Renault's all-new 66kW 0.9-litre three-cylinder turbopetrol, as seen in the t h e c a r ' s l o c a l new Clio, or a much-improved 1.5 dCi diesel with the same output and boasting launch. 220Nm of twist. The most affordable engine option is a normally aspirated 1.2-litre four-cylinder iol.motoring.co.za petrol that's rated at 55kW. As before, a new Stepway 'wannabe SUV' version of the Sandero is also offered abroad, complete with a rugged-looking body kit and a ride height that's been raised

DIE outoppie se 43 jaar ou Chevrolet SS (Holden Monaro GTS in Australië) is in September verlede jaar deur iemand van agter raakgery en erg verniel, nadat hy die motor vir 40 jaar soos ’n babatjie opgepas het. Na ’n gespook om die motor behoorlik te laat waardeer, het Jehanne Claase van Westvaal Mashishing ’n sertifikaat verskaf met ’n waarde waarop die versekeraars kon werk. Tielman Nieuwoudt van BVK / IN2 Insurance, sy personeel en Santam het toe ingespring en die skade is uitbetaal. Intussen het Roelf Castelyn van R&P Autobody die nodige onderdele soos agterligte uit Australië bestel en begin werk aan die motor. My grootste bekommernis was die groot kreukel op die linker agterkant van die motor (sien groot foto onder). Hierdie kreukel is egter reeds uitgetryk (sien onderste fotos). Ons sal lesers op hoogte hou van die vordering met hierdie klassieke motor. Op hierdie stadium wil ek egter reeds my dank uitspreek teenoor Jehanne Claase van Westvaal Mashishing, Tielman Nieuwoudt en sy personeel van BVK / IN2 Insurance in Lydenburg, Chantal Willemse van Santam en Roelf Castelyn en sy personeel van R&P Autobody. Hierdie wonderlike span mense gee werklik om en ek is vol vertroue dat die vuurwa weer so goed as nuut sal wees. Andre Coetzee.

Buyers Market vs Sellers Market

Five tips to building your dream home

T

he property market is determined by supply and demand of real estate, which then dictates whether it is currently a Buyers or a Sellers market. In a Buyers market there is more supply than demand meaning there are more homes for sale than there are actual Buyers. Homes placed on the market during this time often stay on the market longer than average and their prices will likely remain the same or decrease. A Buyers market does not mean your house won't sell though. By making sure that your home is priced appropriately and is show-ready, you will increase your chances of a sale within a reasonable amount of time. In a Sellers market there is more demand than supply meaning there are more Buyers than there are houses for sale. Homes placed on the market during this time will often be sold more quickly than average and possibly for a higher selling price. www.property24.com

damaged before they are built into your home. Getting a loan Banks are slightly tougher when it comes to granting building loans compared to a home loan for a completed property because there are greater risks for the bank. Barker said those who plan to build need to produce more documentation, including building plans, details of the location, details of all building materials and finishes as well as the cost of the land. Loan repayments Banks do not require you to service the full payment of your building loan during the building period. “You should nevertheless try to pay at least the interest portion and insurance premiums from the outset. Without doing this, you are unlikely to come in on budget, and this will start to increase the total cost of the building. Municipality Builders need to understand the role of the municipality and town planners in their building project. Approval turnaround times should be included into the construction timeline. Approval requires the right paperwork, failing which it can take much longer than anticipated. Prospective home builders should be cautious about moving into an area without any water or e l e c t r i c i t y.

IF you are planning to build the home of your dreams, be sure to have the finances, patience and knowledge to do it properly. There is enormous value in creating your own home. Make sure you avoid the pitfalls by understanding exactly what is involved. Costs Most building costs overrun by about 20%, particularly at the top end of the market. If you get into financial difficulties before your home has been completed, it is much harder to sell an incomplete building than to sell a finished house. Some of the reasons for cost escalations include homeowners changing their minds, the lack of qualified project managers, unexpected delays and the cost of alternative accommodation. Cutting costs Several people opt to manage their own building projects in a bid to cut costs, but this can be a dangerous move, warns Barker. “If you cannot always be on site, builders end up waiting for you and the cost of idle labour quickly mounts. “In addition, you will have to make most of the decisions, including building decisions based on limited knowledge, instead of a using a more qualified architect or project manager,” he said. It is important to make sure that you are covered either by your own or your builder's insurance, for things like the materials being
