Cacadu District Municipality

Municipality up for name change

To be known as the Sarah Baartman District Municipality MONIQUE BASSON

T

HE Cacadu District Municipality is set to honour one of South Africa’s biggest struggle icons by renaming the municipality to the Sarah Baartman District Municipality.

relocate their head office from Port Elizabeth to Kirkwood. “We will not arrive in Kirkwood as the Cacadu District Municipality, but as the Sarah Baartman District Municipality,” Vara said at a public participation meeting held in Jeffreys Bay last

Although the majority of stakeholders are in support of this decision, which will not only have an effect on the Cacadu District Municipality but also on the nine local municipalities that fall under this municipality, some are of the opinion that the renaming is an unnecessary process. This, after the District Council supported a request by executive mayor, Khunjuzwa Eunice Kekana, to rename the municipality the Sarah Baartman District Municipality at the end of May 2012. The municipality is now in the process of public participation until June at the latest when they will start with legal processes. These processes include the Section 12 Notice of the Municipal Structures Act, among other things. It is still unclear when the new name will be in place or what the cost involved will be. Portfolio Councillor for Tourism and Creative Industries, Yandiswa Vara, however, is adamant that the new name will be in place before they

Taxi crashes through wall

TEN commuters were fortunate to sustain no injuries after the taxi they were driving in burst through the boundary wall and into Leané Cilliers Optometrists in Noorsekloof, Jeffreys Bay. According to w/o Petra Els, the driver from Jetco Taxis lost control

of the vehicle after the brakes failed as she came down Noorsekloof on Tuesday at approximately 07:00. Leané Cilliers from Leané Cilliers Optometrists said that apart from the damage to the taxi, there is also extensive damage to the building and the boundary wall will have to be replaced.

Extensive damage was caused to the inside of the building. Photo: ERNA LOOCK

“The front part of the building will have to be broken down and completely rebuilt. The taxi hit it with such a force that the structure moved a few centimetres. We also had to stabilise the ceiling with poles for the mean time,” said Cilliers. “We are thankful that no one was seriously injured.”

Help koop ’n Wendy-huis vir trauma-sentrum MONIQUE BASSON DIE bekende sanger, Andries Botha - die voormalige hoofsanger van Mean Mr Mustard - en plaaslike sanger Lenro Stoltz, span eerskomende maand hul ‘stemme’ ten bate van liefdadigheid in. In samewerking met die Kouga Express en Potter’s Place, word ’n liefdadigheidsvertoning - genoem die Band-Aid Fondsinsamelingsprojek op 4 Maart ten bate van die J-Bay Trauma-sentrum gehou wat dring-end ’n eie gebou benodig. Alle geld wat ingesamel word, sal vir die aankoop van ’n Wendy-huis aangewend word, om die werk van die plaaslike traumatoloog te vergemaklik en vir diegene wat vir berading kom, ’n veilige en privaat hawe te bied. As liedjieskrywer by uitstek, sanger van formaat en begaafde kitaarspeler, verower Botha al vir jare die harte en wikkel die voete van Suid-Afrikaners. Met sy ryk stem en unieke klanke bring hy invloede uit die hele skatkis van die land se kulture. Botha is ‘n mense-mens en sy musiek weerspieël volwasse, kontemporêre kwessies. Van sy trefferliedjies sluit in “Lugballon”, “Blou planeet” en “Storie”. Dié bekende liedjies, asook twee nuwe liedjies wat Botha in met Stoltz geskryf het, verskyn op sy nuutste CD Kyk op, wat voor die middel van die jaar op die rakke sal wees. Kyk op, Botha se derde Afrikaanse album, beloof om een van die grootste trefferalbums te wees wat die jaar op die rakke gaan

verskyn. Stoltz, ’n talentvolle liedjieskrywer en sanger, het verlede jaar met sy CD liefde, lewe, tyd sy debuut in die musiekwêreld gemaak en sy trefferliedjies “Lewe jou lewe”, “Superman” en “Ry jy of bly jy” kan op radio-stasies reg-oor Suid-Afrika gehoor word. Stoltz het ’n rasper-rock stem wat die aandag trek, terwyl sy stem ’n andersheid verleen wat vinnig byval vind by musiekliefhebbers. Sy sielvolle lirieke laat mens se binneste reis na wêrelde waar die klanke van die ewigheid deur ’n dun membraan oor die siel spoel. Die vertoning vind plaas op 4 Maart om 20:00 by Potter’s Place in Jeffreysbaai. Kaartjies kos R70 per persoon en is beskikbaar by Potter’s Place in Andries Botha Jeffreysbaai

Police confiscate items worth thousands THE Jeffreys Bay Police confiscated stolen goods to the value of approximately R9 000 on February 15. This follows after business owner, C’hancy Chirwa, reported a break-in at his business premise in Central, Jeffreys Bay earlier the morning. According to w/o Petra Els, the suspects gained entry to the building through a sliding door. Information received by the public, led to the arrests of three suspects Anele Nyobene (18) from Ocean View, Alex Bobi (21) from No Ten Rand and Phumlani Vumazonke (29) from Ocean View. The suspects appeared in the Humansdorp Court on Monday, February 18.

Thieves still targeting trailer wheels

EVEN though the Jeffreys Bay Police arrested several suspects, who are thought to be responsible for the theft of trailer wheels in the area, these wheels are still high on the list of local thieves. According to w/o Petra Els, in the latest incident the wheels of a trailer in C-Place, Jeffreys Bay were stolen over the weekend. During August and September last year, more than 10 cases of trailer wheel theft were reported. “Police received information that a grey Corsa bakkie with a black bonnet was seen in the vicinity at the time of the theft,” said Els According to Els, there is a market for second-hand trailer wheels. “If you have to buy second-hand tyres, please buy them from a reputable source. “The public must ensure that their trailers are parked somewhere safe, preferably inside the premises or a building. Another preventative measure is to fit special locknuts, which are obtainable from most automotive parts dealers,” said Els. Residents with information in this regard or who notice any suspicious looking vehicles or movement, can contact the police station at 0 042 200 6800 or00 079 122 8790.

Suspect hangs himself at police station MARSHELL Bambo (37) hung himself in his cell at the Jeffreys Bay Police Station last Thursday. According to w/o Petra Els, the cells are visited hourly and prisoners were visited just before 06:00 and told to be ready to appear in court. “When the police entered Bambo’s cell a few minutes after six to fetch him for court, he had hung himself with a blanket.” Bambo was due to appear in the Humansdorp Court on a house breaking case. An inquest is under investigation.

Vision 2030 maps region’s future THE Eastern Cape has embarked on a formal process to map its future, and is rolling out a comprehensive engagement strategy to involve all 6.3 million people of the province. Vision 2030 is an initiative of the Eastern Cape Planning Commission (ECPC) to engage with all sectors of society, including previously marginalised groups such as rural women and the youth, to identify development priorities for the province over the next two decades. The provincial Commission is chaired by the MEC for Provincial Planning and Finance, Mr Phumulo Masualle, who assumes overall responsibility for strategic direction. He is supported by eight eminent and highly respected Eastern Cape thinkers, transformers and achievers drawn from academia, the business community and broader civil society. Each Commissioner will provide leadership and oversight for a specific working group that will focus on key issues and challenges facing the province. These working groups will function in partnership with the Commission’s secretariat, and the many champions and supporters from across the province who have already stepped forward to become part of this milestone initiative. Far from being just another development talk shop, the work of the Commission is wholly outcome orientated. As such, it will feed directly into both the planning and executive strategies of the Eastern Cape government, as well as providing a platform for ordinary citizens to reflect on their reality and to define a new narrative about the future of the province. “The approach and work of the ECPC is not about the Commissioners or about government leaders. It is a about what ordinary people want for their future. We are committed, therefore, to this being an inclusive and participatory process,” said Commission Deputy Chair Dr Lulu Gwagwa. To ensure the Commission reaches the widest possible audience, engagement initiatives are being rolled out throughout the province with key stakeholder partners. Contact and feedback opportunities are being created across a number of platforms, including electronic, social and new media.

Speaking out against rape and abuse KOUGA staffers came to work in black on Friday to show their support for the Black Friday anti-rape campaign. The nationwide campaign was sparked by the brutal rape and murder of Bredasdorp teen Anene Booysen. Kouga Executive Mayor Booi Koerat applauded staff for taking a firm stand against rape and abuse. “The statistics are horrendous,” he said. “It is said that every four minutes a rape is committed in our country and that only 12% of reported rape cases end in conviction.” He encouraged municipal staff to campaign actively against abuse and rape in their communities. “Abuse and rape affects everyone girls and boys, women and men. It could happen to any one of us or to someone we love. “Let us stand together and stamp out this atrocity. Together, as Kouga, we are saying ‘enough is enough’.”

Lee­Roy Perils, Cathmare Kettledas, Karen Deschamps, Albert Venter, Vuyelwa Made and Lesley Syce were among the many Kouga municipal staffers who supported the Black Friday anti­rape campaign. Photo: SUPPLIED

Municipality up for name change MONIQUE BASSON Continued from page 1 ACCORDING to her, the ANC took the decision to change the name to Sarah Baartman in order to give recognition to the icon and the role of coloured people in the fight against apartheid. “The renaming of the municipality is not about the municipality, but about the district and its people. We hope by changing the name of the municipality that we will restore the dignity of our people and unite the people of the district.” Chief Michael Williams from the Gamtkwa/ gamtours said this name change has his full support. “We can only benefit from the name of the municipality being changed to that of an international icon. I just hope that the Khoi people will be linked with the benefits associated with her name, and not be left behind,” said Williams. “With this change, it is also my hope that the name coloured will be changed to Khoi-khoi.” Not all, however, is in favour of this name change and the procudures that were followed. According to the chairperson of the Jeffreys Bay Residents Association, Paul Haul, the association has not taken a position on any particular name change application at all. “What the association is opposed to is the improper use of state and public resources in fundamentally political whitewashing exercises,” said Hjul. “I inquired into the existence of a proper application form having been brought for the proposed name change and any other name changes so that an informed position could be made. The indication that emerged is that the intention is to establish a local names council to pursue a particular agenda and this contradicts the correct way of doing things. “The public needs to know who wishes to change the name and why a proper proposal

allows people to engage with the process.” .The nine municipalities that fall under the Cacadu District Municipality are Kouga, Koukamma, Baviaans, Sundays River Valley, Makana, Ndlambe, Blue Crane Route, Camdeboo and Ikwezi. The significance of Sarah Baarman Sarah Baartman is an international icon synonymous with the commitment to democracy by the South African Government. Baartman, of Khoi-khoi descent, was born in 1789 and raised within the Gamtoos Valley in the Cacadu District Municipality and was laid to rest in Hankey along the banks of the Gamtoos River on August 9, 2002. She became orphaned when her family was attacked in a commando raid and she was subsequently taken to Cape Town as a slave. At the age of 20, in 1810, William Dunlop, a British ship’s doctor, took her to London. There she was put on display as a human novelty, due to the fascination of the Europeans with her body shape. Her inhumane treatment was exposed and a court case was brought in her defence by the African Association, an anti-slavery group in London. When she could no longer be displayed in London, she was sold to an animal trainer in France, who also used her as if she was a circus animal. She died of respiratory illness in Paris in 1815, after which her body was dissected by a scientist named George Cuvier, Napoleon’s surgeon-general. A body cast was made of her corpse and her body was put on display until 1974. In 1994, president Nelson Mandela appealed to the French Government for the return of the remains of Sarah Baartman from the Musee de l’Homme in Paris. It was only in 2002 that the French Government finally agreed. On August 22, 2002, former president Thabo Mbeki, declared the grave of Sarah Baartman a national heritage site.

W

HILE electronic transactions are on the rise, many of us still regularly go to the ATM to withdraw cash for smaller transactions.

It’s a routine that many take for granted and that’s what fraudsters prey on. A recent report by the Spark Cash Index showed that the average cash withdrawal values across South Africa for December 2012 was R485.07, a 5.99 percent year-on-year increase. While this reflects a greater dependency on ATMs for disposable cash, Visa would like to caution members of the public to take special care when using this service to obtain cash – whether at a shopping mall or at the one-stop-shop at the local service station. Fraudsters will use any opportunity to commit crimes, from looking over your shoulder, to elaborating set ups such as installing a CCTV and skimmer on an ATM machine to steal information about your Visa card. Stealing your card information, will enable them to potentially create fake credit cards for fraudulent spending – all on your account Here are three potentially tricky scenarios that you may face while withdrawing cash at an ATM and suggestions how to better protect yourself from fraud. ATMs in suspicious locations You are taking a casual stroll at a leisurely Sunday market when you realise that you no longer have any cash

and need to withdraw money. You spot an ATM but as you approach it, your instincts start to tingle and you just don’t feel comfortable with your surroundings. Now, what would you do in this situation? The right thing to do in this situation is to find another ATM machine that you are comfortable using. Always be aware of your surroundings. If the ATM is poorly lit in a concealed location, or if you’re just not feeling comfortable, use another machine. Also avoid counting cash or rummaging through personal items while standing at the ATM. Watch for ‘shoulder surfing’ You are at a well-lit ATM in an area that you are comfortable with. There seems to be nothing wrong so you proceed to make your withdrawal. You’ve always had trouble with remembering your PIN, so you quickly take a peek at your note with the number. In the meantime, you failed to notice two shady characters lingering a little too close for comfort. What’s wrong with this scenario? First of all, you should have your PIN memorised and never, ever write it down. Cancel your transaction immediately if you notice suspicious activity such as someone lingering over your shoulder or suspicious equipment on the ATM itself. Also, choose a PIN that is not connected to your personal information such as your date of birth or phone number. Secondly, you should always take your ATM receipts with you. Keep

your ATM receipts to compare against your bank statements as this is one of the best ways to help guard against fraud. Furthermore, you can also sign up for email or text ‘transaction alerts’ from your bank so you can be alerted to any transactions occurring from any of your accounts in realtime. Cash trapped You’ve input your PIN and the screen shows that the transaction was successful. However, you don’t see any cash being dispensed by the machine. You assume that the machine is out of order and go into the bank to report the situation. After you leave the ATM, a figure comes by and removes a device that is attached to the ATM and removes your cash. What should you have done in the situation? You should always examine the ATM carefully for devices. Card or cash trapping devices are usually glued or taped to the card reader or cash dispenser. Also, look for ‘extra’ cameras beyond the basic and generally obvious ATM security camera. If you run into any problems mid-transaction, don’t leave the machine. Instead call the bank from the ATM where your card was taken. Visa works around the clock to ensure that your card transactions are protected worldwide, but you can still take simple steps to ensure that you (and your Visa card) are not victims. These scenarios are meant to make you aware that, although rare, crimes can happen anywhere, anytime.

Martial Arts fighters on way to World Championships

E

IGHT fighters, two of which have full Protea Colours, from Van Niekerk Potts MMA in Jeffreys Bay will represent South Africa at the 40th annual US Open World Sport Martial Arts Championships. Competitors can only qualify to represent South Africa by being placed first, second or third at the annual NMA-ISKA National Championships, known as Destiny. To be awarded full Protea Colours, the martial artists need to be graded to Black Belt and must have been placed first in their division at the National Championships. To have two team members with full Protea Colours is a wonderful achievement. The fighters that will represent South Africa are Sempai Marco Co-

etzee (11 years, junior black belt and Protea Colours), Sempai Brody Steyn (9 years, junior black belt and Protea Colours), Sensei Steve Potts (59 years, 4th dan black belt and Presidents Colours), Jurgens Steenkekamp (18 years, brown belt and Presidents Colours), Tracey Potts (38 years, purple belt and Presidents Colours), Hannes Muller (9 years blue belt and Presidents Colours), Buks Coetzee (42 years, blue belt and Development Colours), and Jay Brown (9 years, blue belt and Development Colours). Taking place in the heart of Disney World, Orlando on 5 and 6 July, the US Open and ISKA World Martial Arts Championships brings together the world’s very best competitors, teams, coaches, spectators, and officials. The event will again be telecast worldwide on the ESPN Networks. To be able to represent their coun-

Top kunstenaars by Potter’s Place Andrew Young, Fredi Nest en Lianie May

T

OP Suid-Afrikaanse kunstenaars, asook ’n internasionale kunstenaar, gaan die volgende paar dae die voete laat wikkel by Potter’s Place in Jeffreysbaai. Eerste op die lys van bekende kunstenaars, is die wêreldbekende Andrew Young. Dié internasionale sanger én opname kunstenaar en bekroonde saxofoonspeler bring sy suksesvolle vertoning van Europa na Potter’s Place

op 22 Februarie. Young het sy musikale opleiding op die ouderdom van 8 met klarinet en saksofoonlesse begin, maar soos die meese ander seuns wou hy eerder leer sokker speel. Selfs na skool was hy verskeur tussen ’n loopbaan in musiek of sokker - gelukkig het hy die regte keuse gemaak. In die vertoning by Potter’s Place bring hy dié twee groot passies van sy lewe saam met die prestasie van die Liverpool FC volkslied, You’ll Never Walk Alone. Deur middel van musiek, film en staaltjies, vat Young en sy orkes die gehoor op ’n reis deur sy lewe in Liverpool en speel liedjies wat hom en ’n generasie van musikante oor die jare beïnvloed het. Young is vyf keer vir die Suid-Afrikaanse Musiektoekennings genomineer en sy debuut albmum Soul People was twee keer bo-aan die lys van die SA Charts. Kaartjies vir sy vertoning is R130 per persoon. Om kaartjies te wen, SMS YOUNG gevolg deur jou naam na 0 082 324 3888 voor 12:00 more. Op 23 Februarie kan musiekliefhebbers uitsien na Fredi Nest, wie

se vertonings 100% sy oorspronklike werk is. Soos met gebore musikante sing en bespeel hy die kitaar al van kleins af. Hoewel hy eers in sy dertigerjare besluit het om musiek sy loopbaan te maak, het hy deur die jare heen talle liedjies gekomponeer waarvan hy en ander kunstenaars opgeneem het. Tot nou het hy oor 250 geregistreerde komposisies in Afrikaans en Engels. Vandag word Nest as een van die land se beste skrywers van ligte musiek beskou. Hy en ’n hele handvol van die land se voorste kunstenaars spog met verskeie treffers uit sy pen. Fredi se musiekloopbaan het die afgelope paar jaar sterk gegroei nadat hy by Select-Musiek aangesluit het. Sy laaste drie albums het almal goue status behaal. In 2007 het hy die SAMA verower in die afdeling Beste Afrikaanse Country-album en in 2008 en 2009 is hy benoem in dieselfde kategorie. Hy het al verskeie musiektoekennings ontvang. Die nuutste was in Februarie 2011 toe hy die SA Country-toekenning – Beste skrywer vir Hold on Woman ontvang het. Lianie May is op 26 Februarie te sien by Potter’s Place. May is een van Suid-Afrika en Afrikaanse musiek se hardwerkendste en besigste kunstenaars. Sy toer die land vol waar sy voor vol sale optree. Sy is besonder gewilde onder haar aanhangers en iemand van wie daar in jare nog baie gehoor gaan word. Haar debuutalbum, Vergeet My

Nie, is in September 2007 vrygestel en was een van die groot suksesverhale in die Suid-Afrikaanse musiekbedryf in 2008. Dit het gespog met verkope van meer as 120 000 en May het verskeie toekennings gewen, onder meer die Tempo-toekenning as gunstelinge nuweling én beste popalbum. Die grootste toekenning was egter toe dit in 2009 die Sama-prys as topverkoper in die Suid-Afrika oor alle genres gewen het, ’n merkwaardige prestasie vir ’n debuutalbum. Ná ’n Kerfees-album, wat baie goed ontvang is, is May se volgende album, Boeremeisie, vrygestel. Dit het

gesorg vir treffers soos Honey Honey, Skooljare, Dans Met My Baby en Die Een Wat Jy Wil Hê. In 2010 en 2011 het Lianie en Jay, die gewilde voormalige lid van die groep Eden en deesdae suksesvolle solokunstenaar, twee reuse treffers gehad met die duette In a Moment Like This en Toe Stop My Hart. Haar nuwe album, Lank Lewe die Liefde, is in Julie 2011 vrygestel. Hierdie album beloof om net so ’n groot treffer as haar vorige albums te wees. Al drie die vertoninngs begin om 18:30 vir 20:00. Vir meer besonderhede kontak Potter’s Place by 0 042 293 2500.

Prysskokke: Lewe al moeiliker vir aartappelboere ANDRÉ JOOSTE

B

EDUIDENDE opwaartse druk is in die afgelope paar maande op produksiekoste in die aartappelbedryf waargeneem, waarvan sommige administratief is, soos brandstof, elektrisiteit en arbeid. Die arbeidsonrus in die Wes-Kaap het die gesprek heropen oor die finansiële toestand van die landbou in ‘n omgewing van stygende koste, luidens die verslag oor die gevallestudie wat deur Aartappels SA, bekend gestel is. Daar is ‘n aantal maniere om die impak van stygende koste op die winsgewendheid van die landbou te meet. Dit sluit in bruto en netto boerderyinkomste tot aspekte wat opbrengs op kapitaal meet. Laasgenoemde is meer toepaslik, aangesien dit die opbrengs op kapitaalbelegging sodanig aandui dat dit vergelyk kan word met inflasie en alternatiewe beleggingsopsies binne ‘n riskante omgewing. ‘n Tipiese opbrengs op beleggings behoort inflasie uit te stof om die boer se geld in reële terme te laat groei. Bykomend vereis ‘n meer riskante belegging ‘n hoër opbrengs vergeleke met ‘n lae risikobelegging, byvoorbeeld die koop van aandele op die JSE Bpk, teenoor ‘n bankdeposito. Produsente se beleggingsbesluite word regstreeks geraak deur die beleggingsbesluite word regstreeks geraak deur die beleggingsklimaat waarbinne hulle funksioneer. Ook deur die

opbrengs wat op hul beleggingskapitaal verdien word. In die afwesigheid van ‘n gunstige omgewing en ‘n lae opbrengs op kapitaal, sal produsente nie in die landbou belê nie. Beleggings in die landbou is een van die doeltreffendste stategieë om armoede en hongersnood te bekamp en volhoubaarheid te bevorder. Die gebiede waar beleggings in die landbou die afgelope drie dekades gestagneer of gedaal het, is ook die middelpunte van armoede en hongersnood in die hedendaagse wêreld, Aldus die verslag, Investing in agriculture for better future van die Verenigde Nasies se Voedsel- en Landbou-organisasie. Hieronder volg ‘n blik op die impak van genoemde administrasiekoste op die opbrengs op die kapitaalbelegging van ‘n tipiese aartappelboerdery in die Sandveld-streek in die Wes-Kaap. GEVALLESTUDIE Aartappelverbouing is nie net duur nie, maar ook hoogs kapitaalintensief. Byvoorbeeld: In die kostestruktuur vir ‘n tipiese boerdery wat jaarliks 133 ha aartappels verbou, is die totale kontantuitgawes vir 2013 R15,1 miljoen en die totale belegging in grond en masjinerie is R20,3 miljoen. Dit gee ‘n aanduiding van die bedrag wat nodig is om aartappels te produseer. Aartappels word oor die algemeen as ‘n riskante gewas beskou, onder meer weens die vatbaarheid vir siekes. Meer as twee miljoen ton aartappels word jaarliks in Suid-Afrika ge-

produseer. Die basis-scenario wat die huidige situasie verteenwoordig, uitgesluit enige van 2013 se belangrike eksterne skokke, dui op ‘n jaarlikse gemiddelde nominale opbrengs op kapitaal van 2,7% vir die volgende ses jaar. Dit is beduidend laer as in 2011 weens die groot styging in onder meer brandstofpryse en laer markpryse vir aartappels. Die opbrengs sal tot onder 2% in 2014 krimp, waarna dit weer behoort te verhoog. Faktore wat die netto boerderyinkomste (NBI) en opbrengs op kapitaal onder druk plaas, sluit in hoër lone, skerp brandstofprysstygings en duurder elektrisiteit. Sedert die begin van verlede jaar het die brandstofprys met meer as 40% gestyg. Dit het daartoe gelei dat die totale brandstofrekening vir die tipiese boerdery-eenheid verlede jaar met meer as R340 000 toegeneem het. Gevolglik het die NBI met dieselfde bedrag gedaal. ‘n Laer NBI beteken dat die ‘marge vir foute’ kleiner word. ‘n Brandstofprysskok van 15% vir 2013 is op die boerdery van toepassing gemaak. Die jaarlikse gemiddelde nominlae opbrengs op kapitaal vir die volgende ses jaar sal tot 0,8% daal, vergeleke met die 2,7% van die basisscenario. Indien die aanname gemaak word dat die dagloon vanaf R84 (‘n normale kontantloon vir aartappelboere) tot R105 styg, sal die totale arbeidsrekening met R105 000 toeneem (‘n verhoging van 25%). Dit sluit die verhoging in heeltydse werkers se lone in. Die aan-

name word gemaak dat geen werkers afgedank word nie. Die jaarlikse gemiddelde nominale opbrengs op kapitaal vir die volgende ses jaar sal tot 2,1% daal, vergeleke met die 2,7% van die basis-scenario. ‘n Derde eksterne skok is gebruik om die impak van ‘n verhoging van 16% in elektrisiteitskoste vanaf 2013 te toets. Dit sal aanleiding gee tot ‘n verhoging van R79 000 in die elektrisiteitskoste vir vanjaar. Die jaarlikse gemiddelde nominale opbrengs op kapitaal vir die volgende ses jaar sal tot 1,6% daal, vergeleke met die basis-scenario. Die gesamentlike impak van skerp verhogings in die branstofprys (+15%), in die koste van elektrisiteit (+16%) en die koste van arbeid (+52%), word in die grafiek weergegee. Die lae NBI vir 2013 lei tot ‘n opbrengs op kapitaal van 0,6%. DIt beteken ook dat die plaas teen ‘n verlies bedryf word. NEGATIEWE OPBRENGS Vanaf volgende jaar word dan jaarliks ‘n negatiewe opbrengs op kapitaal gerealiseer. Die is duidelik dat die finansiële prestasie van ‘n tipiese aartappelboerdery onder hewige druk verkeer. Die boedery sal vanaf vanjaar ‘n negatiewe kontantvloei beleef, gegewe die eksterne prysskokke in brandstof, elektrisiteit en arbeid. Volgehoue negatiewe kontantvloei is die eerste stap na bankrotskap as die boedery nie genoeg kontant kan verdien om alle uitgawes te

dek nie. Ongelukkig is produsente prysnemers, wat beteken dat hulle nie maklik die verhoogde koste aan die verbruiker kan deurgee nie. Dit is duidelik dat skerp verhogings in koste ‘n groot impak op die volhoubaarheid van die landbou en dus beslis ook op voedselsekerheid het. Die opbrengs wat op kapitaal in landbou verdien word, sal ‘n belangrike veranderlike wees wat toekomstige beleggings in die landbou sal bepaal. Die groeiende vraag na landbouprodukte in die komende dekades sal groot druk op die natuurlike hulpbronnebasis plaas. Om hongersnood uit te wis en landelike ontwikkeling te verseker, sal dit wesentlike verhoging in landboubeleggings verg. Hoe hoër die opbrengs is wat op kapitaalbeleggings in die landbou gerealiseer word, hoe meer beleggings sal na die landbou vloei. Regerings is verantwoordelik vir die wetlike, beleids- en institusionele omgewing wat beleggers (produsente) in staat stel omop markgeleenthede te kan reageer. Sub-optimale beleggings in die landbou sal die vermoë van die land ten opsigte van die volgende risiko plaas: Om in die algemeen genoeg kos en in besonder sekere kommoditeite te produseer, buitelandse inkomste te verdien en werk te verskaf. Die landbou gaan dus sukkel om sy regmatige rol te vertok in landelike ontwikkeling, armoedeverligting en ekonomiese groei. Landbouweekblad-Februarie 2013

BOERE is danksy verbeterde tegnologie die slagoffers van hul eie sukses, het Derek Hanekom, Minister van Wetenskap en Tegnologie, gesê. Hy was vroeër jare ook Minister van Landbou. Hy het die negende Internasionale Sojaboonkonferensie in Durban geopen en gesê dit is belangrik om produktiwiteit te verbeter, maar die vraag is wie dan werklik die vrugte daarvan pluk. Boere trek voordeel uit nuwe kultivars, produseer meer produkte en die pryse daal. Indien insetpryse nie dienooreenkomstig daal nie, word boere dus eintlik die slagoffers van hul eie sukses. Die aantal kommersiële boere het sedert die 1970’s reeds van 90 000 tot sowat 35 000 gedaal. Verbruikers moet by nuwe tegnologie baat vind. Hulle word bevoordeel deurdat daar genoeg kos in Suid-Afrika is, maar arm mense en die sonder ’n inkomste, kan nie voedsel bekostig nie. Van die werkloses is juis die gevolg van meganisasie op plase. Net so kom van die mense wat in informele nedersettings woon, van plase af waar hulle afgedank is. Hanekom het gesê die Regering probeer om aandag aan die kleinboere se behoeftes te gee sodat hulle meer dinamies kan word in ’n Suid-Afrika waar boere ál groter plase ter wille van beter produktiwiteit het.

bruikers die werklike impak van die aanpassing in die minimum loon te verduidelik. Daarmee dui hy ook indirek aan waarom boere gekant is teen so ’n groot verhoging en wys “die agterbakse werkswyse” van die regering uit. Arbied maak tans tipies 30% van ’n boerdery se kostestruktuur uit. ’n Redelike breë veralgemening dui daarop dat

die totale jaarlikse koste van ’n klein eenheid R589 440 sal wees, waarvan arbeid R267 600 beslaan. Die verhoging in koste as gevolg van die nuwe loon sal R90 444, of 15% van die totale koste beloop. Die uitwerking daarvan is gelykstaande aan of groter as die winsmarge van die meeste boerderye. Landbouweekblad - Februarie 2013

Letters . Briewe Sluit aan by Wavecrest Buurtwag

Frikkie Sutherland van Jeffreysbaai skryf: Lede van die buurtwag het gedurende die vakansie op ‘n gereelde basis die strate van Wavecrest gepatroleer en die bestuur, het op die eerste vergadering van 2013 kennis geneem daarvan dat die misdaad baie goed onder beheer was. Daar was egter die laaste paar dae weer ‘n groot toename in misdaad, veral gedurende die tye dat nog die polisie, nog die buurtwag in staat was om die strate te patroleer. Statistieke toon baie duidelik dat misdaad afneem wanneer daar sigbaar diens gedoen word deur die buurtwag. ‘n Paar lede is bereid om hulle slaap op te offer en doen selfs in die vroeë oggendure diens. Hoewel die buurtwag oor ‘n goeie aantal gewillige lede beskik, is dit net nie moontlik om op ‘n redelik deurlopende basis die baie noodsaaklike diens te lewer nie. Die plaaslike polisie doen hul bes, maar hulle is ook nie in staat om ons strate op ‘n 24/7 basis te patroleer nie. Skelms breek in in een deel van die dorp, en wanneer hulle daar besig is, maak hulle van die kans gebruik om in ‘n ander deel van die dorp toe te slaan. Meer deurlopende diens deur die buurtwag kan hierdie probleem voorkom. Nuwe buurtwaglede sal dus die las van die huidige groep lede verlig en booswigte kan nog beter aan bande gelê word.

Buurtwagdiens vra ongeveer twee diensbeurte van 2 uur per maand van elke lid. Lede kies self die tye waarop hulle diens wil doen en gebruik hul eie voertuie. Wanneer hulle iets verdags merk, stel hulle die polisie in kennis. Die algemene kommentaar van lede is dat die polisie baie vinnig op aanmeldings van misdaad reageer – buurtwaglede stel hulle dus nie self in gevaar om booswigte te konfronteer nie. Gedurende die bestaan van die Wavecrest Buurtwag het dit nog nooit gebeur dat enige lid op enige manier in ‘n ongemaklike situasie beland het nie. Buurtwaglede voel so veilig dat daar selfs ‘n paar vrouens is wat saam met hulle mans diens doen. Die misdaadsituasie in ons land is nou eenmaal maar so dat elke landsburger iets moet doen om dit te bekamp. Daar word dus ‘n beroep op die inwoners van Jeffreysbaai gedoen om by hulle onderskeie buurtwagte aan te sluit. Persone wat belangstel om aan te sluit kan Adj Off Pottie Potgieter by die plaaslike polisiekantoor of 0 072 414 2090 kontak vir die nodige besonderhede.

Besoedelde liggame

Waterfiemies van Jeffreysbaai skryf: Menigte beleef ‘n tydperk van reën – af en toe - en duur besoedelde water. Almal, wat dit min of meer kan bekostig, gryp nou na waterfiltreerders, want liggame en wasgoed moet beskerm word. Filtreerders is nie op spesiale aanbiedings nie, en

daar is geen subsidies of afslag op munisipale water nie. Die inwoners betaal getrou die maandelikse verbruik wat veronderstel is om suiwer, skoon, helder water te wees. Helaas, die suiwer water is eers beskikbaar nadat dit deur ‘n huishoudelike proses gegaan het. Die foto dui ‘n nuwe filtreerder en een wat maar sewe dae oud is. Was die vakansiegangers bewus daarvan? Nee! Sien die inwoners, vakansiegangers en toeriste die Blouvlagstatus raak en is onbewus van die Bruinwaterstatus? Dit is hoog tyd dat die munisipale amptenare die publiek waarsku teen hierdie nie-menslike gebruik van water soos daar op sigaretverpakkings teen die gevare van rook gewaarsku word.

oorbetalings nou tot einde Desember opbetaal is. Maar slegs nadat die OosKaapse Direkteur vir die Nasionale Vervolgingsgesag (NVG) die munisipale bestuurder en die finansiële direkteur verantwoordelik hou in ‘n uitspraak wat op 20 Desember 2012 gelewer is. Die twee amptemnare moet nou die oorbetalings op datum hou en mag nou in die volgende 2 jaar nie weer soortgelyke oortredings begaan nie. Danksy die DA word die regte en fondsgroei van Kouga se werknemers behoorlik beskerm. Ons sal aanhou om die waarheid te ontbloot en korrupsie te beveg.

In Kouga is waarheid skaars

J.C. van der Walt van Astonbaai skryf: Hiermee ’n groot dankie aan Abraham en sy span vir die finale diens gelewer. Ons het op 8 Februarie ’n probleem met ons watermeter en stopkraan gerapporteer en op 17 Februaie het Abraham en sy span ons probleem opgelos. Hy het ook deurentyd ons op hoogte gehou van wat jy gaan doen en wanneer. Die munisipaliteit kan doen met werknemers van Abraham se stoffasie.

Elza van Lingen skryf: Dit is duidelik dat die woordvoerder van Kouga Munisipaliteit of nie op hoogte van sake is nie of sy bedrieg die werknemers en die publiek – (Kouga Express 7 Februarie). Dit is duidelik dat die finansiële state van Kouga Munisipaliteit van einde Oktober 2012 aandui dat ‘n bedrag van R2 418 819 steeds verskuldig was aan die pensioen- en voorsorgfondse. Verder is daar werknemers wat in Desember 2012 briewe van hul fondsbestuurders ontvang het omdat hul maandelikse bydraes vir November 2012 nog steeds agterstallig is. In hierdie stadium blyk dit dat die

Baie dankie Kouga Munisipaliteit

Wel gedaan dr. Jacobie

M. Horak van Paradysstrans skryf: Daar word altyd gekla oor die swak diens van sekere hospitale. Maar vandag wil ek baie dankie sê aan dr. Jacobie wat ontdek het dat ek

’n katarak in my oog het, en ook ’n wonderlike operasie gedoen het. Al die personeel van die Humansdorp Hosiptaal, asook die kombuispersoneel was baie goed vir my. Ook ’n spesiale dankie aan Carla Bouwer wat my oë weer getoets het na die operasie en vir my ’n baie goeie bril voorgeskryf het.

Cacadu advert to name change

Disgusted South African writes: I would just like to voice my dismay at the Cacadu advert notice (Thursday, February 14) of name change to Sarah Baartman District Municipality. The municipality has not the will, knowledge or capacity to look after her grave which was erected with a lot of fanfare from the authority’s, and yet want to go to great expense to change the name. If these people (municipality) are not proud to upkeep a historical site of her, why disgrace her name. This site is supposed to be a great tourist attraction, which even had television exposure at the time. Must I say more about the running of their affairs. I personally think she would take her belongings and migrate to a better area where she will be appreciated by all. Especially the tourists that expect more from our fellow South Africans.

Instinctive. Responsive. Dynamic, sporty performance takes the love of the drive to an entirely new era. New generation TSI and TDI engines and BlueMotion Technologies standard across the range offer technology today that should only be available tomorrow. It’s another reason why the Golf is so much more than just a car. It’s the car that redefines the car.

Ready. Steady. Golf.
