Tributes pour for Sam Nzima The South African photographer who took the iconic image of a black high school student carrying a fatally wounded student away from the gunfire of apartheid police in 1976 Nzima’s photograph of the Soweto student uprising galvanized international public opinion against apartheid, South Africa’s system of racial discrimination that ended in 1994. The compelling photo shows 16-year-old Mbuyisa Makhubu carrying the crumpled body of 13-year-old Hector Pieterson, as Pieterson’s sister reacts in horror. By Staff Reporter news@inner-city-gazette.co.za

S

am Nzima was one of a kind,” said President Cyril Ramaphosa, in a statement. “His camera captured the full brutality of apartheid oppression on the nation’s psyche and history.” Nzima’s photo of the dying Pieterson “caused the world to come to terms with the ... evil of the apartheid system,” said the ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC), in a statement.

“This came at a price to Nzima who was subjected to countless acts of intimidation.” Harassed by the apartheid regime, Nzima resigned from The World newspaper and left Johannesburg for his hometown Lilydale, where he was placed under house arrest for 19 months. Nzima said that for many years he regretted taking the

photo because it destroyed his career in journalism. But he became proud when he saw the lasting influence of his photo and its contribution to ending apartheid, he said. In 1998 Nzima won the copyright for the much reproduced photo. In his later years he taught photography to young students in rural Bushbuckridge in Mpumalanga Province.

Nzima’s photo is the centerpiece of the Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum which shows history of the Soweto students’ uprising on June 16, 1976. The museum was opened in Soweto in 2002 and is one of South Africa’s most visited sites. Pieterson’s sister, Antoinette, whose grief is captured in the photo, has for many years been a guide at the museum.

Tributes for veteran photographer #RIPSamNzima By Staff Reporter news@inner-city-gazette.co.za

I

t was with deep sadness that I learnt of the passing on of Mr Sam Nzima, veteran photographer, father and grandfather. Though he lived in the province of Mpumalanga most of his late adulthood years, he was in many respects also a very big part of Johannesburg. “As a photographer for the World Newspaper during the apartheid era, he documented the June 16 1976 uprisings. His world-recognised photograph of Hector Pieterson in the hands of Mbuyisa Makhubu with Hectors’ sister “Antoinette Sithole running alongside, captured the imagination of the world, and exposed the brutal repression that was the order of the day. ‘In one picture, he exposed the brutality and mercilessness that the black youth in South Africa was exposed to. Although a still picture, he animated the struggle of the black child in South Africa. “Nzima paid the price for his sharp eye; and had to go into hiding for quite some time as he was constantly harassed by the police. This was a fate he faced together with his col-

leagues Peter Magubane and Mike Mzileni, to name a few. The World Newspaper was subsequently banned. “Post 1994, when the history of South Africa was being re-written, Nzima’s photography took centre stage. “His picture of Pieterson was reproduced and reimagined as public art in the form of a sculpture which animates the City of Johannesburg’s Hector Pieterson Museum in Soweto. “His photographs, together with those of his fellow photo journalists, have been the subject of many dissertations. The complex role Nzima and his fellow photo journalists played in our society is best captured by Dr Helena Pohlandt- McCormick who unearthed the 1976 archive in the following words: “Images of the Soweto uprising have stayed with the struggle against apartheid through the years and have captured the collective imagination. “As stories they became part of the discourse of liberation or, in the hands of apartheid’s spokesmen,

part of the rhetoric of the necessity of suppression of threats to the security of the state. As photographs they became part of the inventory of public history or, in the past, material evidence or documentation for the government’s investigations.” “Sam Nzima will continue to live through his work. May he rest in peace and rise in glory. May his family and loved ones find comfort in knowing that he wrote his name in the history books of South Africa. He left an indelible mark, and he will always be remembered and celebrated,” concludes the statement, issued by MMC for Community Development, Cllr Nonhlanhla Sifumba.

Late veteran photographer, Sam Nzima

Questions to ask about an overdraft facility Ryan Prozesky, FNB Consumer Core Banking CEO

I

f you are considering applying for an overdraft, but aren’t really sure how it works, there are important questions you should ask your bank, to ensure you are making the right decision. Ryan Prozesky, FNB Consumer Core Banking CEO, says an overdraft is an important credit facility to help you manage your personal cash flow in the event that your bank account runs out of funds. “It can come in handy to ensure that important debit orders, such as a home loan or insurance premiums, are always honoured, when you use up all the funds in your cheque account, due to unforeseen expenses,”

says Prozesky. He addresses key questions that consumers should ask about an overdraft facility: Do you qualify by default as a cheque account holder? – the approval of an overdraft facility is subject to an affordability and credit assessment. The assessment determines whether the bank approves the application, as well as the size of the credit limit. However, banks often pre-approve selected customers with a good credit profile to make it easier for them to access the overdraft facility. For example, FNB allows pre-approved customers to conveniently take out an overdraft without the need for paperwork through Online Banking, the FNB Banking App, Cellphone Banking and ATMs. Will I need a separate account? – the facility is linked to your cheque account, meaning that you do not need to track or manage the over-

draft in a separate account. When do I start paying interest – you will only start paying interest from the time you start using the facility. The interest will only be charged on the amount you have used. Furthermore, the interest rate is personalised based on your individual credit profile. How do I pay for the amount I owe – the balance you owe will be reduced whenever your salary is paid into your bank account. However, the balance increases as you use the facility. Can I settle my overdraft earlier – when you deposit funds into your account the bank will deduct the amount you owe as well as the interest due. What happens if I no longer earn a salary – consumers can take out credit insurance to cover the debt, in the unfortunate event that anything happens to them.

It can come in handy to ensure that important debit orders, such as a home loan or insurance premiums, are always honoured, when you use up all the funds in your cheque account

For example, FNB offers an Overdraft Debt Protection plan which covers your outstanding balance in the event of death or permanent disability and your minimum instalments for up to 12 months in the event of temporary disability or unemployment/inability to earn an income. Customers who fall into financial difficulty are encouraged to contact their bank to make a suitable repayment arrangement.

Many banks have the ability to gradually reduce your overdraft limit overtime to help structure a repayment plan. “With any form or credit, the onus falls on the consumers to use it responsibly and always ensure that their financial commitments are honoured on time, to avoid being heavily indebted and eventually hampering their credit profile,” concludes Prozesky.

Know your numbers To observe World Hypertension Day on 17 May 2018, the City invited residents screening for hypertension and other chronic conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol and prostate cancer.

T

he City’s 81 clinics are the first point of contact for many residents seeking medical care. Uncontrolled hypertensive patients are reviewed by doctors at the clinics and are referred to higher levels of care where necessary. From January to March 2018, the City’s clinics screened over 314 572 patients older than 40 years for hypertension. As part the City of Joburg’s drive to reduce lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, it runs awareness campaigns at all its regions. This year’s theme for World Hypertension Day is “know your numbers”. This is to create awareness around high blood pressure. Hypertension is abnormally high blood pressure.

live with high blood pressure and it is responsible for one in every two strokes and two in every five heart attacks. Hypertension is known as a “silent killer” because there are rarely any symptoms or visible signs. As a result, more than 50% of people with high blood pressure are unaware of their condition. “The City of Joburg is a caring administration that is creating an inclusive society with enhanced quality of life. The City is actively participating in ensuring that its residents are healthy,” said Member of the Mayoral Committee for Health and Social Development Cllr Mpho Phalatse. MMC Phalatse said the City’s Health and Social Department urges residents to look out for signs of hypertension. “These may include symptoms such as headaches, shortness of breath or nosebleeds but these signs and symptoms are not specific and usually don’t occur until high blood pressure has reached a severe or life-threatening stage. Lifestyle conditions such as being overweight, stress, smoking and old age contribute to hypertension,” said MMC Phalatse. The good news is hypertension can be controlled or even prevented by adopting a healthier lifestyle. Reducing fat and salt intake and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables makes a difference. Commit yourself to regular physical exercise, maintaining a healthy weights and limit alcohol intake. The City’s Health and Social Department coordinates 5km walks to encourage members of the communities to adopt a healthy lifestyle. The City’s health promoters also give health talks in the clinics about hypertension, nutrition and physical activities. Published by:

Why Has The Rainbow Nation Fallen For Hamas’ Darkness And Deception? Hamas, the Islamic government and terror group, rules the Gaza Strip with an iron fist without regard for human or civil rights, says Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs project director. By: Dan Diker

S

outh Africa’s withdrawal of its ambassador to Israel, Sisa Ngombane, hands a momentary victory to Hamas in its war of deception and terror. Hamas, the Islamic government and terror group, rules the Gaza Strip with an iron fist without regard for human or civil rights — including the persecution, torture and killing of Palestinian Christians. While the South African government likely views the Gazan side as the weaker and therefore “just” party regardless of terror actions or declarations of jihad against the Jews, Hamas’ terror crusade has sent young Gazans to their deaths by inciting and compensating them thousands of dollars to penetrate the Gaza-Israel border fence in to kill innocent Israeli citizens, including children, to “retake Palestine” from the Jews. South Africa must understand that its diplomatic break from Israel merely strengthens the Islamic Republic of Iran’s hidden hand guiding Hamas’ Gaza jihad and weakens the cause of peace, justice and self-determination for Palestinians and Israelis. Hamas has long proved its terror bona fides in line with its 1987 covenant expressing its religious duty to destroy the Jewish people and its nation state. Since 1993, Hamas has killed hundreds of Israeli civilians in mass-casualty suicide attacks throughout Israel. Hamas’ current terror crusade in Gaza has been engineered by Muslim Brotherhood groups in Europe and by Yahiya Sinwar, Hamas’ new president, who has been a commander in the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, Hamas’s military wing. Sinwar is widely considered Hamas’ most ruthless leader since the organisation’s founding in 1987. Is Pretoria aware that the Iranian regime has put Gaza “in play” as a chess piece as part of its regional strategy to destroy Israel and subvert countries across the Middle East? Accordingly, Tehran’s $100-million funding of Ha-

mas and Islamic Jihad in 2018 stands behind the Hamas terror campaign as the Islamic Republic’s southern front to destroy Israel. Simultaneously, the regime has placed some 175,000 Hezbollah rockets in Lebanon, pointed at the Jewish state, while tens of thousands of Iranian military operatives are ready to attack from Syria. Iranian operatives under the command of Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani, together with Sinwar and the Hamas leadership, have been planning, financing, inciting and compensating tens of thousands of Hamas supporters, many of them young teenagers, to storm the internationally recognised border fence with Israel even at the risk of death. Their stated intention is to kidnap and commit mass murder of Israeli women and children living as close as 400 metres on Israel’s side of the Gaza border in Jewish communities such as Netiv Ha’ Asera and Nahal Oz. Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, referring to the Jews living in southern Israel near the border with Gaza, said on April 6:

“We will tear down the border and we will tear out their hearts.” Hamas operatives, camouflaged in civilian clothing to appear like innocent civilians, reportedly receive $1,000 to commit cross-border attacks. Hamas pledged $3,000 to the families of those killed by Israeli fire. Palestinians injured by Israeli troops in the clashes receive $200-$500 in compensation, depending on the level of injury, while the Palestinian Authority pays thousands of dollars monthly for life if they are captured or killed, in line with PA legislation. It may seem surprising that Hamas’s cash incentive system has generated fewer than 100 self-declared “martyrs” who have been killed, out of a population of some 1.8-million Gazans. This is not a popular protest; it is part of Iran and Hamas’s grand strategy in its war of attrition to destroy the Jewish state. Hamas leader Mahmoud Al Zahar confirmed Hamas’ strategy in a May 13 interview on Qatar’s’ Al Jazeera net-

work. He said: “The Gaza protests are not peaceful resistance... It is supported by our weapons.” In fact, Iran is using Gaza’s civilians to execute a new “popular warfare” strategy. According to a senior Palestinian Authority security official in Ramallah, Iranian elite Quds Force officers are entrenched in Gaza tunnels assisting in the overall strategy and execution of the fence-storming terror campaign. Three major Israeli independent daily newspapers have reported based on Palestinian sources that Hamas’ plan is to destroy the fence and clear a path for thousands of Hamas operatives to carry out terror attacks in Israel with knives, bombs, firearms, wire cutters, drones, and incendiary kites that have already ignited wildfires in kibbutzim fields. These claims are evidenced by Palestinian statements on YouTube at Palestinian Media Watch and MEMRI. Sinwar himself confirmed Hamas’ intentions to the U.K. Independent newspaper on May 11. saying: “What’s the

problem if hundreds of thousands storm this fence which is not a border of a state? What’s the problem with that?” Sinwar added that he, “did not recognise the border” between Gaza and Israel. For Israel’s part, Pretoria is likely unaware of the self-imposed open fire restrictions that constrain the Israel Defence Forces. IDF “Purity of Arms” principles mandate that: “The Israel soldier shall not employ his weaponry and power in order to harm noncombatants or prisoners of war, and shall do all he can to avoid harming their lives, body, honour and property.” Supreme Court justice Esther Hayaut has already said that Hamas-led protests have placed IDF soldiers in an impossible and life-threatening position of being overwhelmed (overrun and possibly killed) by thousands of Palestinians operating according to Hamas orders. To be sure, breaching or tearing down an internationally recognised border fence to enable thousands of Palestinians to stream into Israel with the intention of killing, maiming, and kidnapping Israeli citizens poses an acute threat to innocent people. Israelis of all political stripes are disappointed in South Africa for withdrawing its ambassador. Pretoria may have noticed that neither Egypt nor Jordan have taken such actions. These two Arab neighbours and allies have also suffered from Hamas’ long and bloody record of terror and deception. That is why Egypt has outlawed Hamas as a terror organisation and Jordan expelled Hamas’ founder, Sheik Ahmad Yassin, to Gaza in 1996. Only if South Africa uses its diplomatic influence to convince Hamas to stop incentivising its youth to commit terror attacks and instead create a secure and stable and flourishing society based on human rights and equality — values South Africa has struggled for — can Gaza’s youth realise a promising future. Israel is waiting to assist its neighbours to achieve those dreams. — This article first appeared in the huffingtonpost
