n an unprecedented meeting held in Pretoria on Friday 14 June 2013, government and key players in the mining sector agreed on a plan to work together to ensure the sustainability of the mining sector for the future of South Africa's economy. The parties agreed to, among others, speed up transformation in the mining sector to ensure ordinary workers see real change, with government also to speed up efforts to upgrade human settlements in mining towns and improving infrastructure. It was further agreed that managers and leaders of the mining sector will ensure they manage miners' issues more constructively. Likewise will labour manage workplace conflicts by identifying and dealing with root causes; also to educate workers on labour relations. The meeting, chaired by Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, was convened amid heighted tensions between rival mining unions the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu). With the strike season looming, Mr Motlanthe said for the next two weeks the parties, which include labour, business and government, will engage in a consultative process to determine what is to be done to avert potential conflicts. In May, President Zuma asked Mr Motlanthe to lead discussions in the mining industry with a view to stabilising the environment ahead of annual wage talks and to calm investor fears

over labour unrest. Mr Motlanthe said there was broad commitment from all parties to achieve industrial peace and to ensure that the mining sector in South Africa continues to play a central role in the economy. “All parties will work jointly to identify sustainable support measures required by the sector. Government will ensure that legislative and regulatory programmes provide stability and certainty for the industry,” he said. In a draft framework agreement, the parties acknowledged that the rule of law has been lacking in the mining industry leading to some of the conflict which they all said could have been avoided. The trade union federation Fedusa General Secretary Dennis George said law and order was crucial to restore confidence in the mining sector. National Union of Mineworkers General Secretary Frans Baleni stressed the importance of ensuring that parties do not deviate from the agreed commitments. “This is something that we need to ensure. We need to be sure that there is an enforcement mechanism and that there are consequences for deviating from such a commitment. We would prefer to have sanctions so that if there are deviations from an agreed principle, there should be consequences," he said. Sa News gov.za

orkers for the John Taolo Gaetsewe district municipality took to the streets on Thursday 13 June 2013, fuming over the random positional changes by its management. Speaking on the side of the picketers, shop steward Jeffrey Booysen said that the problem started a week before, when the council meeting endorsed a new organisational study. The study led to rapid changes and implementation of position changes within the municipality without buying in of relevant stakeholders like the local labour forum that represents workers, council and management. The contentious study resulted in the devolution of posts and creation of other posts, leading to the haphazard moving of employees from one position to another. He said that this has created confusion in the municipality and therefore they want the management to explain clearly why it jumped the line of procedure. Employees have been urged to resubmit their qualifications, a condition they think is meant to crucify those who are suspected of not toeing the line. They alleged that the centre of the problem emanates from the municipal manager because she wants to manage them with an iron fist. Mr Booysen

ith over 71 000 residents in the Postmasburg and De Aar areas set to be exposed to asbestos contamination, the Democratic Alliance (DA) is demanding urgent action from government. In this regard, the DA will request urgent intervention from the Green Scorpions. Karen De Kock, MPL DA and Northern Cape Provincial Spokesperson of Health, says the DA will also write to the provincial departments of health and environment to establish whether they have been consulted in terms of Transnet's planned dumping of 560 000 tons of asbestos in De Aar. The DA will further write to Northern Cape Premier Sylvia Lucas, requesting her to lodge an intergovernmental dispute with the relevant national departments responsible for authorising Transnet to use Northern Cape towns as an asbestos dumping ground. Asbestos contamination is already a crisis in the Northern Cape. According to previous media reports, between 30 and 50 new cases of asbestos-related sicknesses are treated in Kimberley Hospital every month. The areas around Kuruman and Prieska have the highest incidence of asbestos-related illness.

People living in these areas get exposed to asbestos on a daily basis, even though all asbestos mines have closed down. Given the above, government simply cannot afford to allow this health crisis to be extended further across the province by turning a blind eye to asbestos dumping. However, it seems that the severity of the asbestos dilemma is not grasped. In 2011, a task team comprising of local, provincial and national officials was established to consider options, draw up an operational plan, calculate the costs and to present it to the government for approval for the next financial year. However, mitigating action has been minimal and during the departmental budget presentations in May 2013, the department of environment still did not know how much funding would be allocated to rehabilitating asbestos roads and areas for the 2013/2014 year. The DA will continue to monitor this issue and drive it at a national level. Depending on how these issues are resolved, they will also consider reporting the matter to the Human Rights Commission, as non-action by government serves to violate the health rights of countless community members.

roject management company DRA Mineral Projects has delivered South Africa's first wet, high-intensity magnetic separation (Whims) beneficiation plant for iron-ore. The Whims project fulfilled an engineering, procurement and construction management contract for Khumani Iron Ore Mine, run by manganese ore and alloy company Assmang. The company is jointly owned and controlled by diversified miner African Rainbow Minerals Ltd (ARM) and mining holding company Assore Ltd. Commissioning of the Whims plant took place between February and May 2013, enabling the mining major to process tailings for the extraction of saleable product. DRA Minerals,

E

skom has invoked its right to disrupt the power supply to BHP Billiton's aluminium smelters in the case of an emergency, as demand by households showed signs it will exceed the state-owned utility's capacity to generate enough power this winter. The demand forecast for the near future shows that South Africa is on the brink of plunging into blackouts similar to those experienced in 2008. Delays in commissioning the Medupi power plant and maintenance of Eskom's existing power-generating facilities are largely responsible for reducing the utility's spare capacity. In the event of an emergency, Eskom intends to exercise its option to redirect over 2000MW of power

therefore, delivered on its promise to complete the Whims plant within budget and two months ahead of schedule. Following the successful completion of the 16-million-to-ayear Khumani Expansion Project (KEP) in 2012, the Whims unit is essentially a magnetic separator that allows the deslimed 0.8mm ore to pass through a primary and secondary stage of Whims. The selected equipment can process up to 120 t/h of solids and the overall plant consists of four primary and four secondary separation units. The project implementation phase started in May 2011 and construction started in September 2011. First steel was erected on 1 March 1 2012, and the first feed material was

from the Hotazel smelter and the Mozal smelter in Mozambique to the grid, as part of a supply agreement that allows it to interrupt the power supplied to the smelters for up to two hours a week, at any given time. BHP Billiton SA had not yet been informed of how much power would be taken away from it, spokeswoman Lulu Letlape told the media on Thursday 13 June 2013. She said it was not yet clear how many of its potlines would be affected by a possible shutdown. If power to smelters is shut down, it forces the plant to operate at reduced capacity and it is usually costly to restart the smelter once power is fully restored. BHP Billiton is Eskom's single biggest consumer. In the 1990s, the com-

successfully introduced at the plant on February 27. DRA senior project manager JC Heslinga stresses the importance of exploring new avenues of technologies to ensure that the company offers its clients the best solutions for their particular projects. “The delivery of the Whims plant at Khumani mine bears witness to this,” he says. The Whims project is building on the impressive safety record achieved during the KEP, which recorded more than 12-million fatality-free work hours. The Whims project was completed with 1.25-million lost-time injuryfree (LTIF) work hours and 519 LTIF calendar days. Mining Weekly

pany signed a controversial power supply agreement at a lower rate than other industrial customers, which Eskom has been trying to have reviewed since 2004, so far unsuccessfully. "The risk that we flag is that our margins are very, very tight," said Eskom spokeswoman Hilary Joffe. She added that the utility will be speeding up the maintenance of its power-generating fleet in an effort to raise its capacity and avert a collapse in the national grid as demand increases this winter. Eskom's margin is the thinnest since the power cuts struck Africa's biggest economy five years ago, pushing commodity prices to records as gold and platinum mining companies halted operations for five days.

riends and relatives of the late veteran soldier Tshekiso “Funga” Nkadimang were happy to witness his reburial in Batlharos, his home village. The event was graced by the presence of the new Speaker of the provincial legislature Kenny Mmoiemang, new MEC for Social Development Tiny Chotelo, Ga-Segonyana and Gamagara Mayors Gibson Anthony and Maria Diniza respectively and several departmental heads. Mr Nkadimang died in 2006 after a long illness and was buried in Kimberley. He had retired during the time. However the family felt their brave son had to be brought home and reburied. In consultation with the Department of Arts, Sports and Culture the aspirations of the family were realised. The department played a pivotal role leading to the exhumation of the fallen hero on 14 June 2013 in Kimberley and his reburial the following day. A product of Mkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) a military wing of the ANC during the struggle is said to have gone through numerous apartheid challenges hence he decided to join the struggle. Narrating heart-rending events was his brother Meshack, the owner of Kgalagadi Hotel, who said that they were forcefully removed from Lohatlha in 1977 in droves and only paid forty pounds as compensation for the whole structures to the many villages of today including Batlharos. At that time the hero was only a boy and decided to leave the country, necessitated by the traumatic experiences during the time. Many speakers praised the fallen hero and said that the youth of today must maximise the freedom brought by the hero to empower themselves through education. A member of the MKMVA now in the ranks of the academia and intellectuals, Bushy Maape said that real politicians must be honest to the electorate because time will catch up with them.

he Tsantsabane Black Business Chamber held a meeting in the Postmasburg Town Hall last week to report on its activities and as part of a process to beef up its clout as it approaches its first anniversary. The Chairperson of the TBBC, Alister Davids, said the organisation will continue to spearhead a series of programmes to ensure the participation of black business in the opportunities presented by the local economic growth. Speaking at the special membership meeting on Thursday 13 June 2013, Mr Davids reiterated the need for a local mining charter that will speak to the inclusion of Tsantsabane small and medium enterprises in the value chains of mines. In his speech he also urged the local municipality to respect the interest of black business. The meeting also responded to a recent smear campaign against the TBBC and bank reports were submitted to demonstrate integrity in the financial practices of the institution. Mr Hendrè Jacobs from Blinkklip Lekgotla released the findings of a recent telephonic survey which has demonstrated the continuing need for a united black business voice. The chamber, which views itself as the local provocateur for black business, has solicited the assistance of Dr Thami Mazwai, renowned expert in rural economic development, to introduce an enterprise development programme for its member organisations. “Our goal is very simple, to bolster the capacity of black business to participate in the local economy and in so doing uplift the poorest in our community,” Mr Davids concluded.

Provincial Government Official Commemoration

T

he Premier of the Northern Cape, Sylvia Lucas, accompanied by the recently appointed MEC of Transport, Safety and Liaison Mac Jack, hosted the Youth Day celebrations with the youth and communities of Siyanda District Municipality at the Robert Gunda Stadium in Paballelo, Upington on Sunday 16 June 2013. This year's celebrations themed ''Working together for youth development and drug free South Africa'' was in celebration of the thirtyseventh anniversary of the uprisings of the youth of Soweto in 1976 in defiance of being tutored in Afrikaans. The country celebrated 19 years of Youth Day. The celebrations were, among others, attended by the Speaker of the Siyanda District Municipality, Councillor Nokhaya Mjila, Councillors of the //Khara Hais Municipality and other heads of departments. Speaking to the youth, Ms Lucas encouraged them to make use of the opportunities presented by government to empower themselves and to take their studies seriously. Ms Lucas said that an educated nation can overcome all challenges and that communities must take hands to ensure drug-free communities that are destroying the lives of young people. The focus on a drug-free South Africa has been one of the sharp focal points of government in the past months due to an emotional letter

written by mem-bers of the Eldorado Park com-munity in Johannesburg to Presi-dent Jacob Zuma, complaining about how druglords have taken over their neighbourhood. Those who attended the celebrations were entertained by the local choirs Paballelo Choral Choir and Yodassa Gospel Group. Upington Correspondent Soweto 16 June 1976

Kuruman Youth Challenged to Be the Change

unicipal workers at Ga-Segonyana local municipality in Kuruman turned the administration block into a high school premises on Friday 14 June 2013. Most employees, especially the ladies, were wearing school uniforms to honour the significance of Youth Day celebrated all over the country. They said that they felt obliged to reduce themselves to scholars just to remember the contribution made by the youths during the times of apartheid. Apart from school uniforms, normal duties had to be fulfilled in earnest. Victor Mulangisi

K

urara FM's Tsepo Kgatl-hane saw to it that the Youth of Kuruman lacked something, and sought to change it. It thus manifested in the June 16th Youth Day Celebrations held at the rubbles behind the Kurara FM studios. The theme was “Remembering the youth of yesterday while celebrating the youth of today”. The venue was a perfect contrast to the message “Be the Change you want to see: Build something” and enveloped by awesome and inspirational graffiti. There were performances by the best artists that Kuruman has to offer, from KMG's own Beezy, Cypher Pro, BBM, Cryptic Mapampa, Khan and Ms Butter-fly. Nthabiseng Kgoronyane offered those in attendance a rousing poem in dedication to the youth while Tsepo's speech served to uplift and inspire. The kwaito stars kept the crowd thoroughly entertained with their amazing dancing. The Motswa-kology DJs offered excellent music during the intermissions and there was an open-mic ses-sion as well, with members of the audience given the opportunity to sing, dance or showcase what-ever talents they wished to share. Lesedi Serepolwane was the graceful Master of Ceremonies. The youth, who were instructed to be clad in “swagged up school uniform”, were then led into a pledge by Motlamedi Thupae, who was asked to inform

the crowd of ways in which they could be the change and why it was necessary. His topic line was “Are we the youth that remembers; or are we the youth that will be remembered?” His fellow youth joined him in reciting,

committing themselves to serving Kuruman and her youth. The pledge sounded as follows: “I pledge to be the change that is necessary for Kuruman, and for Kuruman to reach its greatest potential. I am Kuruman's only hope, I am fully aware of that. And today,

I solemnly swear and promise myself to the service of my fellow youth”. In his final address Tsepo reminded the youth that this was just the beginning of something big and next year's event would be on a grander scale. Kuruman Correspondent

Y

oung South Africans are feeling more optimistic about their future. This as the country celebrates Youth Month this month, and celebrated Youth Day on Sunday 16 June 2013. According to the latest Youth Hope Index, a survey conducted at regular intervals by consumer insights company Pondering Panda, 56% of young people feel that South Africa will be a better place for them to live in, 10 years from now. This equals the highest figure recorded previously, which was in January this year. The latest survey polled 8349 respondents, the majority of whom were between the ages of 15 and 34. It found that optimism for South Africa's future grew from 53% in March to 56% in June. Those who had a negative outlook fell by the same number, from 47% in March to 44% in June. According to the latest survey, younger respondents were more likely to be optimistic than older ones. 64% of 15 to 17 year olds felt South Africa would be a better place to live in 10 years from now, compared to 57% of 18 to 24 year olds, and 51% in the 25 to 34 age group. Men were more optimistic about South Africa's future than women. 60% of male respondents felt positive about the country's future, compared to 53% of women. Optimism also differed according to race.

Africans were most likely to be positive about their future, with 58% feeling the country would be a better place in 10 years. In contrast, less than half of respondents from all other race groups were positive about their future. Only 49% of whites, 48% of Coloureds, and 36% of Indians felt South Africa would be a better place in which to live a decade from now. The survey, which also asked young people what worried them most about South Africa's future, found that unemployment remained their biggest concern. 23% of respondents said it worried them more than any other issue when it came to the next 10 years. Crime (20%) and politics (11%) ranked second and third, respectively. Shirley Wakefield, spokesperson for Pondering Panda said: “As we approach Youth Day, it is positive to see that young South Africans are feeling relatively more optimistic about their future in SA, with optimism levels having improved slightly in the last couple of months. We saw it fall last year after Marikana, and dip again in March after the farmworker strikes, but has recovered slightly since then.” All interviews were carried out on cellphones between 6 and 10 June 2013, and 18 and 27 March 2013, across South Africa. Responses were weighted to be nationally representative in terms of age, gender and race. SAnews.gov.za

DA Northern Cape Leader, Andrew Louw, among a group of youths from Upington.

T

he Democratic Alliance Youth (DAY) celebrated Youth Month with a bang on Monday 17 June 2013 at the Upington show grounds with an event which attracted well over 320 young people from all over Upington and surrounding areas. The event was held as part of the DA's Youth Month activities, and was aimed at not only commemorating the sacrifices of the youth of 1976, but also to celebrate and inspire the youth of today. The day was full of fun and activities, with the event kicking off with a motivational speech by the DA's Provincial Leader, Andrew Louw. The day also saw a short address by the party's provincial

Chairperson, Harold Mcgluwa, who spoke on the DA's continued insistence that national government implement the Youth Wage Subsidy without delay. The provincial DAY's stance is clear: It is morally unacceptable that the youth of today are denied an opportunity to access the job market through the Youth Wage Subsidy. They feel that while President Jacob Zuma and NC Premier Sylvia Lucas continue to try pleasing the ANC's alliance partners, it is sadly the 34.5% unemployed youth of the Northern Cape that suffer. The rest of the day was dedicated to other fun activities, including drama plays and several sports events.

epresentatives of the Department of Public Works recently met with John Taolo Gaetsewe Small to Medium Enterprises (SMME) Forum members at GaSegonyana's Banquet Hall to brief them on supply chain procedures. The meeting came at a time when there are ten projects that need to be undertaken through the evercontroversial tendering processes in the area. With all the deliberations on the supply chain legalities and processes having flowed smoothly and explained to the satisfaction of members, it was the awarding of tenders that brought discord at the workshop. More of the projects need highly graded contractors. It

emerged that the area with these projects has contractors with less grades rendering them unqualified to be granted the contracts. A majority of the local SMMEs range between 1 and 3 in the grading system, whereas nine of the ten projects to be undertaken need grades of 6 or more. The specification therefore was putting locals out of the tendering net, raising a lot of issues. The issue of joint ventures came to the fore so that smaller contractors can have a share, but it emerged contractors outside the region will opt for the outside smaller contractors, leaving locals in a limbo. Consequently nine of the ten site inspections set for 18 June 2013 have been

put on hold while officials in the department look into the matter, preferably revisiting the policy framework that governs the awarding of tenders in relation to the grading system. According to the Contractors Industry Development Board (CIDB) provincial manager Mr Owen Fielding said that local authorities have clearly-defined policies that mandate them to develop local entrepreneurs but keep these programmes in their closet without implementing them. SMMEs have vowed that nothing can happen without them, leading to the temporal suspension of the colossal projects designed to develop the communities.

s the main contractor on the Bestwood Estate project in Kathu, civil construction and engineering company Esorfranki Civils is on schedule to complete all civil works on the new mixed-use human settlement development by the third quarter of 2013. “This is one of the biggest housing projects we've worked on in recent years. In addition to its magnitude, the project differs from traditional projects in that civils and building work are taking place simultaneously to meet the tight deadlines associated with this fast-tracked development. “Civils infrastructure work on 1 700 stands began in February last year, followed by the start of building activities in April. As the civil works are completed, we are releasing the stands in batches to the builders,” says Esorfranki Civils Director Mark Green. So far, the company has handed over 87 stands from the first phase and 20 from the second phase. “We will be handing over about 45 stands a month from now until completion,” Mr Green said. Located on a 200 hectare site adjacent to the N14 national road at Kathu, Bestwood Estate is being developed by Share Africa Housing, a joint

venture initiative between various role-players in the property industry. In addition to a range of affordable housing, the estate will comprise schools, retail, hospitality, medical and sporting facilities as well as places of worship. The estate will primarily accommodate employees of local mining companies. Mr Green noted that the project site is characterised by the occurrence of a large percentage of solid calcrete rock. He expects that more than 100 000 m3 of rock will be blasted during the civil works and crushed on site for use as backfill. Esorfranki's scope includes installation of 18 km of water reticulation, 14 km of sewer reticulation and 14 km of gas reticulation. Mr Green said that 90% of the equipment being used on the development belongs to Esorfranki and was deployed to site by road from the company's Johannesburg headquarters. “There are currently about 300 Esorfranki personnel on site, with an equal number of subcontractors,” he said. The company is doing its own concrete work and, wherever possible, subcontracts have been awarded to local firms, while local labour has been employed for general site work. Engineering News

roduction from the current production area at Finsch Diamond Mine, generally known as Block 4, is now drawing to a close. This area is successfully being mined through the block caving mining method, producing over 24-million tonnes of ore since September 2004, and is one of only a few well-executed and successful block caves in the world. The decision has now been taken to introduce a different mining method when production from Block 4 comes to an end in the second quarter of 2016. The next 120m high block below Block 4, referred to as Block 5, will be mined using the sublevel cave (SLC) method which, although it is not as cheap as a block cave to mine once in place, requires a much shorter development time and requires less capital expenditure before mining can start. In simple terms, the main difference between a block cave and a sublevel cave is that the entire infrastructure of a block cave is put in place before mining starts, whereas an SLC can continue progressively. In the case of a Block Cave the blasting of the block takes place at the initial stages and very little blasting is done thereafter, as ore is fed to load points under its own weight. The SLC mining method of extracting ore from the ore body will involve the drilling of vertical fanned-

out holes of 89mm to 102mm in diameter with approximately 15 holes per fan. This fan of holes will be pumped full of emulsion explosive and blasted to break up a slice of ore, 2 meters thick and up to 30 meters high. Once blasted the ore will be loaded by underground loaders and taken to ore-passes on the same level. The ore-passes will vertically transport the ore to a crusher further down before the ore is taken by a conveying system to the shaft for hoisting and processing

in the plant. By the second quarter in 2016 the top two levels in SLC will have reached steady state production to replace production from the depleted block cave above. An off-course hole will be extremely detrimental to this mining method and could lead to poor breaking and reduced production, creating pillars that leave ore behind. It could also lead to tunnel collapse below because of uneven stress distribution. Petra Diamonds Finsch Mine Communication

Police Raid Hugely Successful

T

he South African Police Service in Kuruman, with the assistance of Public Order Police (POP) from Kimberley and the K9 Unit held an operation during the early hours of Friday morning 14 June 2013. Two houses in the Kuruman CBD were searched and 10 illegal immigrants were arrested for not having the proper residential permits. A 37 year-old man was charged for selling liquor without a licence and others were charged with crimes ranging from

attempted robbery, assault GBH to housebreaking and theft. The police confiscated significant amounts of suspected stolen goods, alcohol and boxes of cigarettes. The operation was a success and police will continue with these types of operations to ensure that the community is safe and secure. The police are requesting community members who have reported cases of housebreaking and theft to visit the Kuruman police station to identify items.

Optrede kom teen Loslopende Diere in Mier-Gebied

O

p 'n vrugtebare en vurige vergadering onder leiding van Mnr Wilfred Moller, Hoof van Departement Paaie, Veiligheid en Skakeling, het daar rigting gekom oor loslopende diere, veral donkies en perde, langs die hoofpad tussen Rietfontein en Askham. Die doel van die vergadering was om oplossings te vind vir die gevare wat die diere vir motoriste inhou. Die groot opkoms was 'n stille getuie dat daar iets aan die probleem gedoen moet word. Mev Sera Beukes, GPF-lid van Askham, het veral klem gelê op die onverantwoordelikheid van die diere se eienaars. Sy het op die hartseer, pyn en frustrasie gefokus wanneer daar 'n noodlottige ongeluk was, en die feit dat die dier wat die ongeluk veroorsaak het skielik nie 'n eienaar het nie. Mnr Petrus Matthys, afgevaardigde van die Miermunisipaliteit, het die vergadering meegedeel dat die regering al miljoene rande op die opgradering van die drade langs die pad en hekke spandeer het. Die drade en hekke word egter telkens deur inwoners van Mier gesteel. Daar word derhalwe 'n beroep op inwoners gedoen om diesulke diefstalle by die SAPD aan te meld vir vervolging. Mnr Matthys het onderneem om te verseker dat die saak op die raad se volgende

vergadering dien sodat die skut van loslopende diere onmiddellik kan begin. Kaptein Burger van die Veediefstaleenheid het veral op die bestaande wetgewing gefokus oor loslopende diere. Moontlike oplossings vir die probleem wat geopper is, is onder andere die onmiddellike skut van diere langs die pad, waarvoor die krale op Loubos vir die interim gebruik kan word. Die Departement Paaie en Openbare Werke sal genader word vir die opgradering van drade en aanbring van hekke

waar nodig, en sal ook waarskuwingsborde aanbring. Die moontlikheid van die tatoeëring van donkies en perde word ook ernstig oorweeg. Klem is veral gelê daarop dat eienaars die verantwoordelikheid vir hulle diere neem, en dat noue samewerking tussen die SAPD en inwoners noodsaaklik is ten einde oortreders vas te trek. Almal was dit eens dat slegs daadwerlike optrede en verantwoordelikheidsin die risikos op die pad sal verminder.

POSTMASBURG

New Forum to March against Mines

T

he Tsantsabane Unemployment Forum (TUF) was recently formed by the community of Postmasburg after some of the surrounding mines employed people outside Postmasburg. On Monday 17 June 2013 the TUF held a meeting with the Postdene community to discuss their issues. Tebogo Shimmy Maroane was tasked to set up unemployment database campaigns. The

TUF has applied for permission to orchestrate a march if the negotiations do not have a positive outcome. The TUF wants to put a stop to contractors and mining companies employing people from outside Postmasburg. For more information please contact the TUF chairperson Jim Rensberg at 078 262 0232 or spokesperson Tebogo Maroane at 073 936 1443.

Is Inlywing die Beste Opsie vir Mier Munisipaliteit?

T

erwyl die skadu's lank oor die voortbestaan van Mier- munisipaliteit word, het die instansie en sy inwoners by 'n kruispad gekom wat 'n onherroeplike effek op die gebied sal hê. Gaan die onbekende pad van inlywing geloop word of gaan daar geprotesteer word vir die behoud van die bekende? Bykans drie maande gelede het vader Gift van Staden, uitvoerende burgemeester van die Siyanda Distriksmunisipaliteit, slegs die inwoners van Rietfontein kom toespreek oor die moontlike inlywing van Mier Munisipaliteit by 'n groter munisipaliteit. Dit was onduidelik in watter hoedanigheid en namens wie hy die inwoners op die gemeenskapsvergadering toegespreek het. In sy toespraak was hy by tye vaag en suinig met die waarheid. In sy verduidelikings was dit duidelik dat daar êrens reeds 'n besluit oor die lot van Miermunisipaliteit en inwoners geneem is. Indien die saak reeds by die Afbakeningsraad voorgelê is, is dit 'n duidelike bewys van arrogansie en die totale miskenning van die Mier-inwoners se deelname aan demokratiese prosesse. Die agteruitgang en verval van die Mier Munisipaliteit is al jare aan die rolspelers bekend. Dit is algemeen bekend dat amptenare wat in 'n hof skuldig bevind is aan korrupsie en diefstal se appélkoste deur die destydse LUR vir plaaslike regering betaal is. Voeg hierby die chaotiese aanstelling van personeel sonder dat dit geadverteer of voor begroot is, en die talle hofsake waarby die munisipaliteit

betrokke was. Dan is daar ook nog die talle reddingsplanne (Projek Konsolideer en die Vyfjaar Strategiese Plan tot 2014) wat klaaglik misluk het, en die “verdwyning” van die R100 000 wat vir sportontwikkeling vir die gebied geoormerk was. Hierdie is net die ore van die seekoei. Iemand het geweet, maar waarom het hulle stilgebly en nie opgetree nie? Volgens vader Gift van Staden sal die Siyanda Distriksmunisipaliteit, die provinsie en Coghsta 'n reddingsplan vir Mier Munisipaliteit uitwerk tot 2016. Kommerwekkend is die idee dat Mier Munisipaliteit volgens vader Van Staden geen burgemeester sal hê nie, maar slegs 'n wyk sal wees van die groter munisipaliteit. Kortom, Mier Munisipaliteit sal geen besluitnemingsmagte hê nie. So, dit sal sy identiteit verloor. Sal so 'n skuif die lot van die massas van Mier verbeter of versleg? In die verlede het laaggeskoolde maar deurwinterde mense met die krummels wat van die apartheidstafels geval het, die gebied na behore bestuur. Maar die demokratiese dispensasie met sy progressiewe grondwet en ander wetgewing skiet heeltemal tekort en nou moet Mier Munisipaliteit en sy inwoners onder vreemde heerskappy boet en staan. Dit is 'n belediging vir die inwoners wat destyds deur sy eie, goeie mense bestuur is. Of is hierdie skuif 'n gesimuleerde poging vir die behoud van mag ten alle koste? Wonder Maar Net, Rietfontein.

okter Martina Matthee het op Maandag 27 Mei 2013 as Ongevalledokter by Kathu Medi-Clinic begin. Dr Matthee is op Kathu gebore en het hier gewoon totdat sy op 3-jarige ouderdom saam met haar ouers na Kuruman verhuis het. Sy was van graad 1 tot graad 7 in Laerskool Kuruman en van graag 8 tot matriek in Hoërskool Kalahari. In graad 1 wou sy graag 'n huisvrou word, sê sy, maar in graad 2 het sy besluit sy wil eerder 'n dokter word en het voet by stuk gehou. Sy sê selfs al sou sy geen betaling ontvang nie, sou sy steeds 'n dokter wou wees. Hierdie besluit het 'n groot impak op haar skoolloopbaan gehad. Dit het haar laat besef dat sy hard moet werk en baie tyd agter die boeke deurbring om goeie punte te behaal, sodat sy kon keuring kry. Sy het egter nie dadelik keuring gekry vir M.B.Ch.B by die Universiteit van die Vrystaat nie. Sy het wel keuring gekry vir B.Pharm (Farmasie) by die Noordwes Universiteit en vir B.Med.Sc by die Universiteit van die Vrystaat. Sy het voor die keuse gestaan om Aptekerswese op Potchefstroom te gaan studeer saam met haar beste vriendin, of om B.Med.Sc in

Bloemfontein te gaan studeer en hard te werk om in daardie eerste jaar keuring te kry vir M.B.Ch.B. Sy het besluit om Bloemfontein toe te gaan en danksy harde werk het sy keuring gekry vir M.B.Ch.B. Na vyf jaar se akademiese studies en drie jaar prakties in Bloemfontein het sy haar gemeenskapsjaar by die Nasionale Hospitaal in Bloemfontein voltooi. As student het sy saam met wonderlike dokters gewerk, waaronder Dr Botha (vaskulêre Chirurg) en haar rolmodel, Dr Van

Dr Martina Matthee. Foto : Hettie du Plessis

der Merwe (Uroloog). Sy sê een van die mees vervullende oomblikke van haar loopbaan was haar eerste solo keisersnit. Swangerskap en die voorreg om 'n gesonde baba in die wêreld te help bring is vir haar seker een van dié mees fassinerende aspekte van haar beroep en die menslike liggaam. Vir die eerste vyf maande van 2013 het sy locumwerk in Bloemfontein gedoen, maar het na iets meer permanent gesoek. Toe sy van die vakante pos by Kathu Medi-Clinic te hore kom, het sy dadelik aansoek gedoen en was natuurlik verheug toe sy hoor dat haar aansoek suksesvol was. Sy geniet dit baie om terug te wees in Kathu. Die personeel is vriendelik en hulpvaardig en dit is vir haar lekker om naby haar vriende en familie te wees. Wat die werk as Ongevalledokter betref, is dit vir haar wonderlik om mense te kan help, maar dit is ook spanningsvol en propvol adrenalien-oomblikke: 'n mens moet vinnig kan dink! Dr Matthee sê as dokter is geduld een van haar belangrikste karaktereienskappe. Op die vraag oor hoe sy stres hanteer, antwoord sy: “Baie koffie! Ek maak seker dat ek gereeld kort tydjies afknyp om te rus en weer my gedagtes te orden.” Sy bid ook voortdurend, vir haarself en vir haar pasiënte. Sy het op die oomblik nie baie vrye tyd nie, maar wanneer sy 'n tydjie het, lees sy graag (op die oomblik lees sy net mediese boeke), geniet 'n lekker ete saam met haar verloofde of bak. Haar droom is om eendag as uroloog te spesialiseer. Die doelwitte wat sy vir haar lewe het is om eerstens 'n goeie en betroubare mens te kan wees vir haar vriende en familie, maar sy wil ook 'n goeie dokter wees wat empatie en simpatie toon. Sy wil ook graag 'n goeie maat vir haar verloofde wees en eendag 'n goeie moeder vir haar kinders. Kathu Gazette wens haar alle sterkte toe vir die posisie wat sy tans beklee.

á twee jaar se harde werk en lang ure in die ateljee, is Hendrik Spangenberg se album uiteindelik hier! Gedurende Februarie 2013 was Hendrik vir drie weke in die Kaap om die res van sy album klaar te skryf en op te neem. “Dit is regtig só 'n lang proses om 'n album te maak en uit te bring, op jou eie. Daar is soveel tegniese aspekte wat mens in ag moet neem voor jy dit na die drukkers kan stuur dat hulle die albums kan begin druk,“ sê Hendrik. Hy was baie verbaas toe hy uitvind die drukkers maak die CD self, heeltemal van “scratch” af. “Die CD's word letterlik van gesmelte plastiek gemaak vir jou hoeveelheid wat jy bestel, dit is nie voorafgemaakte CD's nie. Een van Hendrik se liedjies op die album, “Solank Jy Myne Bly”, wat hy saam met Pierre Rossouw (Wenner van Die Sanger op kykNET) geskryf het, doen reeds ongelooflik goed op BOKradio in die Kaap, en is gelys om in twee verskillende programme in spitstyd te speel. Daar word tans ook beplan aan 'n musiekvideo vir die album se titelsnit “Sal Jou Onthou”, wat in Julie 2013 hier in Kathu geskiet sal word. Hendrik bedank graag sy ondersteuners, vriende, familie, en almal van en rondom Kathu wat saam met hom hierdie pad gestap het. “Dis nie my album nie, dit is julle album, en dit sou nie moontlik wees sonder julle, en my Liewe Vader daar bo nie,” sê Hendrik. Sy CD kan nou bestel word. E-

Paar weke gelede het die Kathu Gazette berig oor 'n tweejarige dogtertjie van Delportshoop, Lika du Randt, wat 'n beenmurg-oorplanting in Kaapstad moes ondergaan. Almal in die Delportshoop/Ulcogemeenskap het saamgespan om geld in te samel vir klein Lika en haar gesin - ‘n Kerrie-en-rys fondsinsameling, boere van Delportshoop wat hulp skenk waar hulle kan en natuurlik die bekende “Pienk Lika-dag” wat gehou is deur Ulco Academy. Op hierdie dag is al die kindertjies gevra om R5 te skenk en die Vrydag pienk aan te trek ter ere van klein Lika. Dit was met oorgawe en liefde vir die dapper dogtertjie gedoen.

Al verneem ons dat klein Lika en Mamma Lizel nog steeds in Kaapstad is, en dat Lika se liggaampie die oorplanting verwerp het, weet en glo ons dat Ons Hemelse Vader haar sal genees vir haar familie. Haar ouers se geloof staan nog sterk en albei voel dat alle eer God toekom en dat Hy alleen die beste weet en Sy wil sal geskied soos dit in Sy plan pas. Al die inwoners en gemeenskap en gemeente van die NG Kerk in Delportshoop se gebede bly steeds sterk vir hierdie klein mensie en haar gesin wat almal se lewens aangeraak het. Ons vra ook vir die gebede van ons mede NoordKapenaars, en dank dié wat reeds vir klein Lika bid.

ie koue oggend van Maandag 3 Junie 2013 het nie die opgewondenheid van die personeel en spesifiek die leerders by Shiloah Akademie gedemp tydens 'n muntlegging ten bate van KANSA nie. Sedert 2012 het Shiloah Akademie kragte saamgespan om fondse vir KANSA te help insamel. Mev Vera Claassens het haarself beskikbaar gestel as koördineerder om die skool by KANSA te verteenwoordig met die oog op die naderende Relay for Life wat vir Okotober vanjaar beplan word. Alhoewel dit haar eerste keer in hierdie posisie is, het sy 'n passie vir die saak. Aan die oorgawe waarmee die leerders aan die muntlegging vir KANSA deelgeneem het, is dit duidelik dat haar ywer aansteeklik is. Volgens die skoolhoof, mev Hannelie Duvenage, word nog heelwat insamelingsprojekte beplan, waarvan 'n “mini-relay” maar

Edward Smit net een is. KANSA is ook betrokke by Shiloah Academy deur onder andere bewusmaking van kankervoorkoming en ook om leerders se moesies te toets vir moontlike tekens van kanker. Die beplande Relay for Life wat die afgelope twee jaar op die sportgronde van Hoërskool Postmasburg aangebied was beloof om hierdie jaar nog groter te wees en alle geld wat ingesamel word sal aan KANSA oorhandig word vir hul werksaamhede oral in die gemeenskap. Foto regs: Die skoolhoof van Shiloah Academy, mev Hannelie Duvenage (regs) bedank die leerders vir hul bydraes ten bate van KANSA.

Kanker Eis Oud-Postmasburger Mev Duifie (Maria) Cordier (62) wat die laaste tyd by haar seun Hennie Cordier en gesin op Kathu gebly het, is op Sondag 16 Junie 2013 in Bloemfontein in die hospitaal oorlede, nadat sy verskeie ondersoeke ondergaan het. Na verneem word het sy kanker in haar beenstelsel gehad. Mev Cordier en haar man Corrie het al die jare in Finchamstraat in Postmasburg gewoon. Hy is in 2000 oorlede en was aan Spoornet verbonde. Sy laat drie seuns agter: Andries van Beeshoek, Kobus van Postmasburg en Hennie van Kathu, asook hulle eggenotes en vyf kleinkinders. Haar suster Anna Bester en gesin woon ook in Erasmusstraat Postmasburg. Mev Cordier was bekend vir haar vriendelikheid en sagte geaardheid. Sy is op Vrydag 21 Junie 2013 om 11:00 vanuit die NG Kerk op Postmasburg begrawe. Ons innige simpatie aan hierdie familie met hulle groot verlies.

SIEKES Mev Pieta Engelbrecht van dr Calitz se spreekkamers wat met bloeddrukkomplikasies in die hospitaal in Kimberley was, is op 18 Junie 2013 ontslaan en sal geleidelik tuis aansterk. Stil wees en baie sterkte, Pieta! Mev Marie Nel van Postmastraat het 'n rugoperasie in Bloemfontein ondergaan en sterk tuis aan. Sterkte, stil lê in die koue. Ook aan die bekende gevalle wat nog aansterk - ontvang ons wense vir 'n spoedige en volkome herstel (ook aan dié wat ons nie van weet nie.)

OORLEDE Piet Morole, 'n munisipale werknemer by Tsantsabane Munisipaliteit op Postmasburg, is op 05 Junie 2013 in Boichoko oorlede. Hy sou in Augustus 2013 47 jaar oud geword het. Hy was ongetroud maar laat vriende en familie agter. Hy was sedert verlede jaar ongesteld. 'n Gedenkdiens is in die stadsaal van Postmasburg gehou op 12 Junie 2013 waar daar hulde aan hom gebring is. Mnr Morole se begrafnis het ook op 15 Junie 2013 in Boichoko plaasgevind. Ons innige simpatie aan hierdie werknemer van Postmasburg se familie.

eeds van die straat se kant af kon mens die opgewonde kinderstemme hoor babbel op Dinsdag, 18 Junie 2013, Laerskool Kathu se langverwagte Entrepreneursdag. Dit was egter moeilik om agter te kom of die opgewondenheid was oor die “Funky” Hoede-kompetisie, die entrepreneurstalletjies op die rugbyveld of die komende Julie-vakansie. Snaakse hoede was oral te bespeur, met geen gebrek aan oorspronklikheid nie. Daar was van 'n “chip fryer”mandjie wat met skooldasse versier is tot “army”-hoede vol diere geplak tot seerower- en heksehoede. Die skool se leerlingraad het omtrent 'n moeilike taak gehad om die wenners onder die juniors en die seniors aan te wys. Verskeie personeellede het in ewe “funky” hoede

paradeer. Ná die beoordeling is die fokus verskuif na die rugbyveld toe, waar dosyne entrepreneurs hulle ware tentoongestel het. “Georganiseerde chaos” sal die daar opvolgende halfuur waarskynlik goed kan beskryf. Leerders kon nie wag om hulle geld te spandeer nie, en het plek-plek tougestaan vir al die heerlike eetgoed wat te kope was. Aan soetgoed was daar geen gebrek nie, en die helderkleurige “doughnuts” het letterlik gevlieg soos wat die kinders se suikerlus hulle beetgepak het. Haarknippe, linte, “alice bands”, armbande, speelgoed, koeldrank, noem maar op, was alles daar. Foto onder: Personeellede van die skool het ook met oorgawe meegedoen aan die pret.

Die wenners onder die seniors was Nadia Greeff, Carla Cronjé, Angelo de Silva en Elizna Muller, wat haar hoed sommer van geel supermarksakkies aanmekaargesit het.

Aan oorspronklikheid was daar geen gebrek by die seniors (graad 4 tot 7) se hoede-skeppings nie.

ngeveer 50 pappas en oupas van kleuters van Cherubs Vroeë Ontwikkelingsentrum op Kathu het op Vrydag 14 Junie 2013 die ysige winterwindjie getrotseer om die skool se jaarlikse Vadersdagvieringe by te woon. Die dik baadjies en truie het egter spoedig gewaai toe die sonnetjie begin bak terwyl die kinders hulle items gelewer het. Ná skriflesing en gebed het Klein Teagan Engelbrecht (5) eerste opgetree met 'n pragtige rugbyliedjie opgedra aan sy pappa. Die skool se onderskeie klassies, die Woelige Wurms, Gretige Goggas, Besige Bytjies en Vlytige Vlinders - het vervolgens die manne getrakteer op spesiale liedjies wat duidelik baie lank vooruit geoefen is. Daar is met oorgawe gespring, gesing en gedans, tot groot vermaak van die gehoor. 'n Paar pappas het ook pragtige pryse gewen met 'n gelukkige trekking wat gehou is.

Die weg van die lewe ...

Wat leer die Skrif omtrent die hel? Sports Reporter

Giant Killers Football Club (above) and Thamoyanche Football Club (below).

O

n the afternoon of Monday 17 June 2013, the Giant Killers Football Club from Black Rock Mine was on fire as they locked horns with the Thamoyanche Masters Football Club at the Thamoyanche Sportsgrounds near Kuruman. However, during the 15th minute of the game star striker Chris scored the first goal for Giant Killers FC. The visitors were in great form and in the 40th minute Lebogang scored the second goal.

The second half of the game was convincing and both teams showed character, but Thamoyanche was led down by leaky defence. Super striker of the day Steve Tshipagaebonwe scored and Captain Carter Motlagosele scored one goal, to make sure Giant Killers FC beat Thamoyanche Masters FC 5 2 to show they are real Giant Killers on the soccer veld.

Soos belowe begin ons vandag kyk na 10 Skriftuurlike feite omtrent die hel, iets wat elke mens met gesonde verstand op aarde behoort te oortuig en deeglik te laat besin om nooit in der ewigheid in hierdie plek te beland nie. 1.) Die hel is nooit oorspronklik geskape vir enige mens nie, maar slegs vir die duiwel en sy engele. In Matt. 25:41 maak die Meester 'n uiters belangrike skeppingsfeit bekend wat betref hierdie grusame plek van verskrikking: “Dan sal Hy ook vir dié aan sy linkerhand sê: Gaan weg van My, julle vervloektes, in die ewige vuur wat berei is vir die duiwel en sy engele.” Dit is egter 'n feit dat elkeen wie dieselfde tragiese besluit as Satan sal neem om daar te beland, ongelukkig nie êrens anders die ewigheid sal kan deurbring as juis in die hel nie. Joh. 3:16-20 bied egter die geseënde geleentheid tot vrywaring van hierdie verskriklike plek. “ Want so lief het God die wêreld gehad, dat Hy sy eniggebore Seun gegee het, sodat elkeen wat in Hom glo, nie verlore mag gaan nie, maar die ewige lewe kan hê. Want God het sy Seun in die wêreld gestuur nie om die wêreld te veroordeel nie, maar dat die wêreld deur Hom gered kan word. Hy wat in Hom glo, word nie veroordeel nie; maar hy wat nie glo nie, is alreeds veroordeel omdat hy nie geglo het in die Naam van die eniggebore Seun van God nie. En dit is die oordeel: dat die lig in die wêreld gekom het, en die mense het die duisternis liewer gehad as die lig; want hulle werke was boos. Want elkeen wat kwaad doen, haat die lig en kom nie na die lig nie, dat sy werke nie bestraf mag word nie.” 2.) Hel is 'n plek van herinnering en gedagtegange van die verlede... In die hel beleef die teenwoordiges daar onophoudelike bewustheid en ook onmiddellike gewaarwording van presies waar jy jouself bevind. In die vertelling deur Jesus van die ryk man en Lasarus in Luk. 16:19-31 het die ryk man onmiddellik geweet waar hy hom bevind het! Daar was ook duidelike identiteitsbewustheiddie ryk man het presies geweet wie hy was. In die hel sal daar ook geheue wees. Die ryk man het Abraham vir 'n bietjie water gevra om sy tong te verkoel waarop Abraham hom as volg antwoord in vers 25: “Kind, onthou dat jy jou goeie dinge in jou lewe ontvang het, en so ook Lasarus die slegte. En nou word hy getroos, maar jy ly smarte.” Is dit nie verskriklik om te dink daaraan dat hierdie ryk man steeds tot vandag nog nie daardie druppel water ontvang het nie? Vlg. Luk. 16:24 vertel Jesus dat die ryk man Lasarus onthou, asook volgens verse 27-28 sy vyf broers wat steeds in die lewe op aarde is in sy gebedsversoek aan vader Abraham. (Hierdie is die enigste plek in die Skrif waar iemand 'n gebed tot 'n dooie rig, 'n onbeantwoorde

gebed. Net so kan géén gebed aan enige afgestorwene ooit beantwoord word nie, omrede gebed tot dooies onskriftuurlik en ook onvanpas is.) Diegene in die hel sal dus perfekte geheue hê en hulle sal ook die verskriklikste intellektuele pyniging op verstandelike asook emosionele gebied moet deurmaak in siele-angs en berou in daardie verskriklike plek! 'n Verdere belangrike beginsel wat ons hieruit leer is dat die sieleslaap teorie geensins Skriftuurlik is nie. Daar is 'n direkte oorgang van die lewe na die dood na 'n fisiese bestaande en bewuste plek, nié 'n slaaptoestand nie. Ek het reeds in vorige lesings volledige Skriflering hieroor gegee wat alles op aanvraag beskikbaar is. 3.) Die verskriklikste kenmerk van die hel is dat dit 'n plek is van foltering en angs. Die ryk man waarvan Jesus vertel spreek die vlg. beangsde woorde in Luk. 16:24: “want ek ly smarte in hierdie vlam.” In vers 28 rig hy 'n dringende versoek aan vader Abraham met die volgende behoefte: “want ek het vyf broers om hulle dringend te waarsku, sodat hulle nie ook in hierdie plek van pyniging kom nie.” Die hel is 'n fisiese plek van foltering, nie een of ander staat of toestand van lewe soos sommige mense leer of glo nie! 4.) Hel is 'n plek van onblusbare vuur. Matt. 13:41-42 “die Seun van die mens sal sy engele uitstuur, en hulle sal uit sy koninkryk bymekaarmaak al die struikelblokke en die wat die ongeregtigheid doen, en sal hulle in die vuuroond gooi. Daar sal geween wees en gekners van die tande.” Markus 9:47-49 “En as jou oog jou laat struikel, pluk dit uit. Dit is beter vir jou om met een oog die koninkryk van God in te gaan, as om twee oë te hê en in die helse vuur gewerp te word, waar hulle wurm nie sterf en die vuur nie uitgeblus word nie. Want elkeen sal met vuur gesout word en elke offerande sal met sout gesout word.” Hier word in terme van “sout” verwys na Lev. 2:13 waar elke offer met sout behandel is as simbool van bewaring. Die verwysingsboodskap hierin na die ewige vuur van die hel dui dus op die onverteerbaarheid daarvan asook die feit dat wat ookal in daardie vuur gewerp word (die offerande) in 'n toestand van onverteerbaarheid verander sal word volgens hierdie kenmerk van die sout self. Elke sondaar sal dus met die vuur van die hel gesout word net soos elke offer ook met sout behandel is. 'n Ander plek in die Skrif waar sout voorkom in die konteks van die oordele van God is tydens die vernietiging van Sodom en Gomorra waar sout letterlik neergereën het op hierdi e s tede a.g.v. di e sonde v an homoseksualisme sien Deut. 29:23. Ons gaan volgende keer van hier af aan.

Groep vasberade atlete van // Khara Hais Harriers Atletiekklub te Upington het op Sondag 2 Junie 2013 aan die jaarlikse Comrades Ultramarathon oor 86.6 km deelgeneem. Hierdie jaar was dit die "op wedloop" (vanaf Durban na Pietemaritzburg). Volgens die atlete was dit 'n baie moeilike wedloop omdat dit baie warm was en die wind sterk gewaai het. Die atlete het swaar gekry, maar is alreeds besig om vir die 2014 wedloop voor te berei. Hulle is dit almal eens dat dit 'n ervaring is wat elke SuidAfrikaner ten minste een keer in hul lewe moet ervaar. Indien u deel wil word van die klub kan u vir David May (082 577 8533), Wakes Njekula (076 098 6276) of enige lid van die klub kontak. Ons sien daarna uit om u by die klub te verwelkom.
