ELM Mayor applauds class of 2016 SEDIBENG. - Emfuleni Local Municipality (ELM) Executive Mayor, Councillor Mahole Simon Mofokeng recently congratulated all Grade 12 learners who passed their 2016 final examinations. “We congratulate all students for their outstanding results and we hope they will encourage the class of 2017 to work harder and achieve even greater results,” he said. Following the release of the official results by the Department of Basic Education last week, Mofokeng singled out top achievers who attained distinctions in all subjects. Xolani Kiwa (17) and Mbali Shamu (18) from Esokwazi Secondary School in Zone 8 Sebokeng and Rhoda Hartzer, Janke Grundling and Gizelle Venske from the Transvalia Hoerskool in Vanderbijlpark are some of the students who achieved seven distinctions in seven subjects in the exams. “We wish these successful students all the best in their sustained pursuit of education as they prepare for life as first year students at various institu-
tions of higher learning,” he said. Meanwhile, the two top achievers at Esokwazi Secondary School, Xolani and Mbali shared their secrets of success and advice for the class of 2017 - long study hours, sleepless nights and sheer dedication to school work. This is what it took for Shamu and Kiwa to each score seven distinctions in their finals. Mofokeng also had a special message for all those who have applied for the Emfuleni Local Municipality’s Mayoral Bursary Fund. “We wish all those who have submitted their bursary application forms the best of luck. The selection process is underway and we will soon make announcements in this regard,” he said. Mbali Shamu (18), right and Xolani Kiwa (17), left from Esokwazi Secondary School in Zone 8, Se bokeng are counted among the country's best performing students of the Matric Class of 2016 with seven distinctions each.

Notorious school gets 100% matric pass rate Mduduzi Mathebula
SEBOKENG. - It is one of the most notorious schools in the Vaal that nobody usually has anything good to say about. But now Kgokare Secondary School in Zone 7 has put its bad reputation to bed by getting a 100% pass rate for their matric results in 2016. The last couple of years they have been lobbying to get 100%. In the past they reached 71% and 96% and finally in 2016 they made it. Speaking to Sedibeng Ster School Principal Joyce Magwa, who started as the school deputy principal in 2011, said her dream has finally come true- five years later.
“When I took over in 2013 I put my head on a block to change the lives of these children. “The school cannot continue to be known for wrong reasons. “We were acknowledged for our excellent football during the 90s,” said Magwa. The 100% rate will be written in the history of the school - that the class of 2016 has turned the tables. “They need to go out there and represent the school and show the world that doctors, lawyers, journalists and presidents can come from a little school right in the dusty streets of Zone 7,” said Magwa who was very excited by the results.

RUST-TER-VAAL. - Three learners made their school proud when they each received bursaries from the Department of Education to study at an institution of their choice. Despite Rust-ter-Vaal Secondary dropping from 88% in 2015 to 85% in 2016, chairperson of the SGB, Pastor Van Wyk, said the school is happy with the quality results. “It is not about how you start the journey but on how you finish,’ said Van Wyk. Eric Lewaak, deputy principal said, “Each child matters. “The SGB, parents and educators have done their best to make sure school-goers shine in their last year.” The principal, Richard van Rensburg said it was the first time in the history of the
school that they received three distinctions in Life Orientation, Tourism and Geography. “This year my school is among the best and that’s what makes the educators and parents proud.” The principal talked about his retirement in the future but says that it won’t happen until he has reached his goal. “I want to see the school boasting with 100%. That will make me walk tall in the street and in the shopping malls.” All the Grade 12 learners had promised to represent their school accordingly wherever they go for studies. Ncala is heading to study Geography at the University of Cape Town, Clarke and Alfred are going to study Tourism and Bcom respectively at the North West University, Vaal Campus.

Gruesome matric suicide?
SEBOKENG. - Rumour has it that a learner who allegedly failed his matric exam committed suicide by throwing himself in front of an oncoming train. The incident happened a few hours after the matric results were made public last week. He was discovered near Residensia on January 5 at around 06:30. It is believed that as the train was approaching, he came out of the long grass and laid down in the middle of the railway line facing the oncoming train covering his face with the tracksuit he was wearing. Police spokesperson Sergeant Gertrude Makhale said, “The train driver unsuccessfully tried to sound a warning. The young man was cut in half, right from the upper hip. He was declared dead by paramedics.” Police have opened an inquest case. The young man was wearing blue jeans, a grey T-shirt, a grey and blue tracksuit top with white Adidas takkies. He is estimated to be between the age of 18 and 20. The family of any missing boy is asked to go to the Sebokeng morgue to identify the body. The case number is with the Evaton Police Station. Police also appeal to members of the public to assist in the matter.

Hit by a gun! Mduduzi Mathebula
A store manager of Cassims store was pistolwhipped by a felon on Friday during a robbery. Photo: Mduduzi Mathebula
VANDERBIJLPARK.- Just as the festive season ended and the new year commenced, Cassims was stormed by armed men on Friday afternoon. These suspects entered the store pretending to be customers. All hell broke loose when one suspect pulled out a firearm and told everyone to be still. Apparently one store manager (a woman) was about to leave the store. The suspect thought the woman had money and pulled her back into the store, pointing the gun at her. The woman was then pistol-whipped with the back of the gun, whereafter the suspects fled the scene. The woman collapsed unconscious. A
car-guard on the scene said he and fellow car-guards had to run for their lives when the suspects stormed out of the store. “I was so scared I nearly soiled my trousers. “I thought I was going die,” said a young car-guard. He claims that one suspect pointed a gun at them and they had to run for their lives. Vanderbijlpark Police spokesperson Gertrude Makhale said that a case of robbery was not opened with the Vanderbijlpark Police Station. “We have no records of the case. However, since the victim was assaulted she must come to the police station and open a case of assault and attempted robbery,” said Makhale.
Illegal connection shocks toddler twice in two days BOPHELONG. - “Eskom must take full responsibility for the people being electrocuted!” This was said by the community of Joko Tea in Bophelong after a three-year-old girl was severely shocked twice by illegal electricity connections recently. The incidents happened on January 3 and 4 respectively. The toddler is in extreme pain and fighting for her life at Kopanong Hospital in Vereeniging.
The 32-year-old mother of three, Nolithanba Photoloama, said her semi-disabled daughter Leema was playing outside her shack with friends when she was shocked by illegaly connected cables. This was after the heavy rains had stopped. She was taken to a local clinic after the first incident and the nurses referred her to hospital but the mother did not have money for transport. “I had to wait for three days to receive social grants,” she said.

Rumour has it that twenty shacks are connected into one house with each shack owner paying R350 per month for the supply. Residents said they have tried in vain to approach service provider Eskom to conduct investigations without success. During the festive season a dog died after being electrocuted and two people were also shocked.

Moreki receives Esther Award Mduduzi Mathebula
SEDIBENG.- Memorial Moreki, a young dynamic woman, was recently crowned Esther the Voice Woman of the Year. The self-taught speaker represented the Vaal in the competition. The Esther Woman in the Kingdom Awards are awards to honour the significant role played by women of the Christian faith in addressing social ills, challenging the status quo and changing lives in the community. Moreki said that Christian women have played a significant role in the well being of the African nation as a whole and more women need to be inspired by the women who have gone ahead in challenging the status quo, addressing a social ill or simply shining brightly in the corner they occupy. “No matter how big or small, known or unknown, it is undeniable that these woman who are walking with Christ and bringing about change are worthy of be-
ing honoured for their dedication towards humanity,” said organiser Gloria Nkosi adding that the Esther Woman in the Kingdom Awards came as an instruction and inspiration as per the book of Esther 6:3 where King Ahasuerus acknowledged the good work done by Mordecai in serving the king and also realising that nothing was ever done to honour him in this regard. “These awards will be the first and the only ones in Africa specifically honouring Christian woman in the different spaces they occupy. Through these awards we hope to encourage women in the kingdom to continue the good work they do, to inspire others to get involved and to bring to attention the great achievements by these phenomenal woman,” said Thabang Mashigo co-organiser. “I’m going to venture in speaking to young men because they hold power and we need to unleash their power in right direction,” said Moreki.

Mofokeng surprises new mothers with gifts SEDIBENG. - Emfuleni Local Municipality Executive Mayor Councillor Mahole Simon Mofokeng and his entire mayoral committee surprised mothers whose bundles of joy were born on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, with gifts recently. Mofokeng and his team visited several maternity wards at different medical facilities, including Kopanong Hospital in Vereeniging, Johan Heyns Community Health Centre in Vanderbijlpark and the Levai Mbatha CHC in Evaton. This was part of an annual two-day programme championed by Mofokeng and aimed at welcoming infants born on days of significance, as part of the municipality’s social responsibility programme. Mayor Mofokeng told the mothers to look after their children and encouraged the excited women to make use of local clinics and hospitals to ensure their newborns stay healthy. “You have a great responsibility of looking after these children. We congratulate all of you who have been blessed with beautiful children,” he said. The executive mayor gave the mothers starter packages which included nappies, wipes, baby lotions and many other necessities

– all packed in big baby bathtubs. Ida Zondo (33) from Small Farm is one of the mothers who gave birth at Sebokeng Hospital on New Year’s Day. “I’m very happy, I’ve named my baby boy Bokang,” she said. She also thanked Mofokeng and his team for thinking about mothers on the first day of the year. “I would like to thank the executive mayor for this beautiful surprise. Life will be easier as I now have the baby’s basic necessities. January is a difficult month and no matter how much you plan ahead, there is always something the baby needs and that is the reason why I’m so grateful to the mayor and everyone who came to see us,” she said. Over 30 mothers who gave birth on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day at different medical facilities received gift packs. They include Puleng Thinane (25) from Evaton Central, Olga Johnny (33) and Lerato Makondo (21) both from Evaton West – who all gave birth to Christmas babies at the Levai Mbatha Community Health Center and Dimakatso Ntsilo (34), Mapaseka Mokako (32) and Ngwajane Mole (19) – who all gave birth to Christmas babies at Sebokeng Hospital.

SERERO’ S E DI T ORI A L C OMME NT
A few hours after we welcomed the 2017 a friend of mine asked me how I would like to be remembered. I thought extensively for an answer but first I wanted to know where this question suddenly came from, and the answer came that said many of us do not seem to be thankful and appreciate what we have - life itself. My pal said that some of us have long been forgotten before we are
Let bygones be bygones! even dead. (A coward dies many times before its actual death). Most will never be remembered at all, not even by family. He made me aware that this being a New Year, many people have made resolutions that they would have forgotten in February, forgetting that they should just be thankful for seeing the New Year. I was left puzzled. To answer his question I said, “I would like to be remembered as someone who put a smile on everyone’s face, someone who was always generous and as someone who lived life to the fullest, no matter the criticism.” I believe the lives we live are the lives we
make. Call it self-destiny, God’s will, karma, good luck, bad luck whatever! When you finally sit down at the end of the day you should know your worth! At the end I want to be remembered for the love that I gave; for the friendships that I made and for the care and compassion that I showed towards others. As we welcome the New Year, another journey begins. I hope and wish that 2017 brings with it for all of us Joy, Love and Prosperity. Whatever differences we might have had in the past year, I wish to say in the words of a wise man, “Let bygones be bygones.” Let us start afresh.
The class of 2016 made us proud and it is now all up to them to prove that they can stand on their own and face the difficulties of life. The ball is in their court. To those that have not made it, this is not the end of the world. Stand up, dust yourself off and continue with the journey. Having said that, I wish to welcome you all - our loyal readers, our critiques, sceptics and the opposition. Continue to do what you do best, whatever it is! Happy 2017. Lerato wa ha Serero...
ANC deputy president a noshow at rally Lazarus Dithagiso
BOPHELONG. - Some ANC supporters left the stadium immediately after they learned that deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa was not coming. “It was not about the bad weather conditions. We were told that Ramaphosa would be addressing the community as part of the mini-rally build-up to the 105th birthday celebration of the ANC,” said one of the supporters on their way out. The mini-rally was hosted at the Bophelong Stadium over the weekeend. Paul Mokhitli and Kaiser Manoeng echoed the same statement. They said they love the party and are happy about the 105th celebration. “No political party will take over from the ANC,” said the die-heart Kaizer. The ANC National Executive Committee members who attended the rally included Joe Phaahla, Obet Bapela, Mcebisi Skwatsha, MEC Sizakele Malobane-Nkosi. They were welcomed by regional ANC chairperson Mahole Mofokeng, joined by Bheki Ngobese,
Maipato Tsokolibane, Robert Thema, Senzo Hlongwane. The rally started as a door-to-door in Polokong and ended up at the Bophelong Stadium. Shabangu said that, as the ANC, they want to assure the community that they are responding to their crisis. “Currently we are busy with preparations to restore confidence in the people. The ANC has leadership with potential to lead. When we go to the next elections, we will remain strong,” she said. The main celebration featuring keynote speaker President Jacob Zuma, was hosted over the weekend at the Orlando Stadium, Soweto. ANC Sedibeng Secretary Bheki Ngobese, Obed Bapela, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, Suzan Shabangu, Mcebisi Skwatsha and Maipato Tsokolibane were at a minirally for ANC celebrations in Bophelong over the week end.

Poor are always held hostage: Sindane Lazarus Dithagiso
SEBOKENG. - Residents of the Riverside section in Boiketlong informal settlement said they are sick and tired of the government’s delayed provision of stands and houses in the area. Taking both Emfuleni Local Municipality Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) councillors and Gauteng Legislature members on tour last week, the community said they were recently relocated to a clay area and every time it rains, the soil sinks. “The construction company delivered sandy soil that is making matters worse,” said a community member. Patrick Sindane from the Gauteng Legislature in Housing Settlements has been deployed by the EFF to the region and his task is to make sure there is service delivery. Sindane said it is about time people receive what they deserve:
“I am here to bring my popularity back through service delivery. Government delays should be a thing of the past.” He added, “Poor people are always left behind in terms of service delivery. It is not a good thing that, before anything happens, a community must first take to the streets.” “Residents should not be held hostage by infighting politics,” said EFF’s Proportional Representative (PR) Councillor Moipone Maisa promising that the issue of Boiketlong would be high on their agenda when the Emfuleni Council resumes on January 24. After listening to the problems of the residents, the officials promised to take up the matter with the ELM and the Gauteng legislature. Sindane was joined by Mzwakhe Mapei, Toni Mnyambane, and Maisa.

Hierdie tenks is in die 1980’s geïnstalleer en het die einde van hul bedryfsleeftyd bereik. Sasol beoog om die bestaande tenks te vervang met nege nuwe tenks met ’n kapasiteit van 242m3 in ‘n area wat grens aan die bestaande tenks. As gevolg van die behoefte aan ononderbroke bedryf, sal die nuwe tenks geïnstalleer en in werking gestel word voordat die bestaande tenks vewyder word, wat dus lei tot ’n tussentydse verhoging in kapasiteit van 242m3.

BACKGROUND AND LOCATION The applicant, Sasol Energy Technology [a Division of Sasol South Africa (Pty) Ltd] (Sasol), operate an existing underground fuel tank site which accommodates 15 underground tanks with a total capacity of 212m3.

Sport at its best
ZACHARI A NALE
A new beginning, a new look! A new beginning – a new look! No, I did not write about football so long that my beard has turned white. This is the new look - the best way to kick start the year! TOUCHLINE wants to take this opportunity to join the chorus in wishing all of you a Prosperous New Year. Compliments are in order! I don’t know about you, but my New Year’s resolution is to remain the person that I was in 2016 and to continue to preach on the development of football in this country against all odds. TOUCHLINE hopes all the people who are involved in the development of football in Sedibeng made some introspection by reflecting on 2016. What happened with Vaal Stars FC is heartbreaking when their celebration was cut short after being told that they were no longer going to play in the Safa Sedibeng SAB League this season. This was the most painful moment for the club administrators, coaches and players to learn that their efforts went up in smoke as they were ordered to replay their Promotion Play-Offs match against a Heidelberg-based side which they lost. I don’t want to dwell much on this, though. As TOUCHLINE said before – even if teams win or won promotion at the end of the season it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are the best. Some coaches will do everything to win even if their teams don’t deserve it. Our players are stuck in SAB League just because some football administrators and coaches don’t create opportunities for them. If we don’t create opportunities for these boys in education or football – they will end up not releasing their potential. TOUCHLINE also wants to take this opportunity to wish all those soccer players who passed their matric the best for the next couple of crucial years. Football and education are like brothers. “It is essential that coaches focus on the education of the youth and not just their football.”

Positive developments at annual Pooe tournament
EVATON.- There were a lot of positive developments at the Pooe Tournament during the festive season. Firstly, the tournament was won by the ABC Motsepe League team Orange Vaal Professionals who are also challenging the league title. This Orange Farms based side smiled all the way to the bank with a cheque for R120 000 in prize money after being crowned the tournament champions. They achieved this after they beat Hlatswayo FC on penalties. Hlatswayo FC received R60 000 as the runner-ups and medals. The two finalists played with new soccer kits branded ‘Community Games.’ The club head, Coach Isaak Mphasane said winning the tournament was a morale booster
for his side as they resumed with their league campaign over the weekend. Mphasane was optimistic that his side has the ability to surprise many by winning the league title at the end of the season. Back to the Pooe Tournament, Bafana Bafana Assisitant Coach Thabo Senong who is also national u/20 coach graced the tournament. He was invited by the Qena Sport Science Academy to give players, especially the teams that reached the semi-finals a motivational speech. Kaizer Chiefs Head of Development Kenneth “Conti” Kubheka was also invited. Qena Sport Science Academy which is owned by a young black woman, Lerato Maqena conducted a session with the players to highlight the significant role played by mental skills training and necessity in perfomance
improvement, by challenging traditional views of performance management among other things. Speaking to Sedibeng Ster Sport Maqena, who is the young woman behind the initiative, said her company is committed to making change in the community. “The objective of this programme working with Pooe’s tournament is to address all the components that make up a successful athletic performance – mental as well as physical. We also want to prepare the athletes to enter competitions with a proper mindset,” she told Sedibeng Ster Sport. Meanwhile, Maqena said her company is looking forward to forming a relationship with local sporting clubs to help them reach their potential to compete at the highest level.
Poor start for Vaal Pros Zacharia Nale
SEDIBENG. - Vaal Professionals FC, otherwise, known as “Setla” started the year in a low gear when they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Alexandra United FC in the ABC Motsepe League match over the weekend. The latter is fighting for survival to escape relegation at the end of the season as they are languishing 13 positions on the log after they played 16 games. They have accumulated 16 points.
Unlike their neighbours – Orange Vaal Professionals FC, Setla has blown hot and cold since the departure of their former coach, Geelbooi “Goma” Masango. However current coach Fusi Mareletsa is trying hard to steer this sinking ship. The club’s No 1 Supporter, Lekgwakgwa Mokoena, is confident that the club will not be relegated at the end of the season. Mokoena, who is well-known for his passion for football in Sedibeng told Sedibeng Ster Sport that there is no need to press the
panic button because it is too early to do so. “This is part of the game where a team will perform poorly after losing a coach but I have no doubt that the current coach will save the team. “There is no need to panic because the league is far from over. I want to thank Ntate Mosotho Petlane for reviving Vaal Professionals FC which was one of the most feared teams in South African football,” he concluded
