The outskirts of the town hold many hidden gems waiting to be discovered or rediscovered. One such gem is Madlamini (right), a traditional healer, who teaches visitors more about the magic of traditional healing. With her is Janina Braun from Germany, who visited Jeffreys. The many visitors, and locals, who do embark on a township tour will in all probability find the experience to be the most memorable and profound of their visit to Jeffreys Bay.

Van die polisiebeamptes was op rusdae, maar omdat die beste polisiebeamptes benodig was, is van hulle weer in diens geroep. “Die polisie het aanvanklik ’n geregtelike doodsondersoek geopen omdat geen beserings aan Bosman gesien kon word nie, maar ná puik speurwerk het die polisie ’n verdagte vir Bosman se dood opgespoor en is die saak na moord verander,” het ao.

KOUGA EXPRESS | THURSDAY 17 SEPTEMBER 2015

Green power boost for Oyster Bay the right support and conditions, there is no doubt that the province can diversify further in the manufacturing of energy systems and components. I look to the Kouga Wind Farm and all the esteemed people here today to join hands in working towards the realisation of this vision,” said MEC Somyo. Christopher Clarke, managing partner of Inspired Evolution and chairman of the Kouga Wind Farm, said: “We identified Red Cap and the Kouga Wind Farm early in 2010 because of the credentials of its development team, compelling wind resource, strength of the project advisors and counterparties, and the robust project management approach to minimising technology and execution risks. This positions the wind farm well for success in the future to ensure it delivers favourable investment returns to sustain its positive development impact obligations over its 20-year life, and we are very pleased to be a part of it.” This wind farm became a benchmark for community ownership with the Kouga Wind Farm Community Development Trust having a 26% shareholding. In addition, it is also an example of best practice in terms of environmental stewardship with the Kouga Wind Farm being instrumental in the establishment of the Greater Kromme Stewardship, a conservation initiative. Lukhanyo Ndube, CEO of the Kouga Wind Farm, said neighbouring communities were already enjoying the benefits with R1,7 million invested in community projects from the construction phase to date, including the completion of a R300 000 mobile clinic waiting facility consisting of a waiting room, two consulting rooms and an ablution unit to serve the Umzamowethu community. Projects are chosen to meet the needs of the

THE R2 billion Kouga Wind Farm at Oyster Bay will now blow over 300 GWh per annum of clean renewable energy to the national power grid. The Kouga Wind Farm, consisting of 32 turbines, was officially opened on September 4 by MEC for Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism Honourable Sakhumzi Somyo. The Kouga Wind Farm generates enough electricity to supply approximately 50 000 average South African households with electricity annually and mitigating over 270 000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually. During the wind farm’s two-year construction period, more than 1 000 temporary jobs were created through its engineering, construction and procurement contractor, Nordex. The project also made use of the services of 15 SMEs with the focus on the local community. A key focus of Kouga Wind Farm is uplifting the communities in which the wind farm is involved, and the neighbouring communities of Sea Vista and Umzamowethu are the primary beneficiaries with the Kouga Wind Farm already investing about R1.7 million in health, child care, food security, education, sport, transport and infrastructure development. MEC Somyo, who was on site for the official opening and cut the “Circle of Friends” ribbon, said the national renewable energy procurement process required increasing commitments towards local content and the Eastern Cape could become a centre of sustainable energy manufacturing and supply for the African Continent. “If the Eastern Cape can manufacture luxury vehicles of the highest quality, then given

community and the plans of the local municipality, based on key focus areas that were identified - namely education and literacy, skills development and training, healthcare and transport, as well as information technology and communication. Projects include providing Sandwater Primary School in Umzamowethu with a solar powered computer lab consisting of 20 computers for learners and one for the teacher, and purchasing the ABET curriculum and training for the staff at The Rainbow School

for the Disabled in Humansdorp. Upcoming projects include assisting the Healthy Mom and Baby Clinic in Jeffrey’s Bay, supporting the Sea Vista Clinic in St Francis Bay and the Sea Vista Primary School Kitchen, the upkeep of Talhado Haven, improving the infrastructure at Sandwater Primary School, providing Environmental Management Training to community members, and giving eight tertiary education bursaries to current Grade 12 learners to study at a tertiary institution of their choice.

Honourable Sakhumzi Somyo, MEC for Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism, officially opened the R2bn Kouga Wind Farm at Oyster Bay in the Eastern Cape, with the 32 turbines of the fully commercial operating wind farm adding about 300 GWh per annum of clean renewable energy to the national power grid.

Patensie residents without water for 11 days PATENSIE residents were furious after being without water for 11 days due to several water pipe bursts and broken pressure valves. According to furious residents they were without water since September 5 and took the matter to their local DA ward councillor, Jan Joy three days later. “The Democratic Alliance (DA) referred the matter directly to municipal manager

Sydney Fadi, who explained that it was a burst pipe and that the matter was resolved,” says Joy. “Since then the water was off most of the time and there has been little pressure. The workers claimed that another pipe had burst, and that they turned the water off for the reservoir to fill up first.” Six days later, residents were still without

water. Water was being carted into Vergenoeg and Noorshoek. According to Joy, the delay is due the Kouga Municipality waiting on a pressure valve from a service provider which is only due by September 16. “The fact that residents can be left without water for 11 days is completely unacceptable,” says Joy. “It is unacceptable that it takes the municipality such a long time to establish

the actual problem and then having to wait for delivery. Efficient service delivery, especially as far as water is concerned, is a necessity. Water is life, and even sewerage systems cannot operate without it. “Patensie has just gone through a major sewerage infrastructure upgrade, and simple problem identification and repair of such an elementary issue cannot be tolerated.” Daphne Kettledas, executive mayor of the Kouga Municipality and MEC of Economic Affairs and Tourism, Sakhumzi Somyo hiked through the Irma Booysen Nature Reserve in celebration of Tourism Month.

MEC takes walk on the wild side ESTI STEWART The MEC of Economic Affairs and Tourism, Sakhumzi Somyo, celebrated Tourism Month - held each year in September - by doing the Walk on the Wild Side with 16 of his tourism partners and colleagues, as well as selected members of the media.

X1QJ6PBW-170915-KG-mfestr-vorm

Daphne Kettledas, executive mayor of the Kouga Municipality, also put on her hiking boots and joined board members of the Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency (ECPTA) and Nelson Mandela Metro Tourism Officials on the 21km hike. The Walk on the Wild Side is a new three day/ two night hiking trail in and around Cape St Francis. The group met at the Cape St Francis Resort on September 11 and hiked through the Irma Booysen Flora Reserve, boasting its spring flowers in full bloom. Prof Richard Cowling, representing the Friends of the St Francis Nature Reserves (FOSTER) gave a short briefing on the fauna and flora of the area as well as conservation of the nature reserves. The delegation then enjoyed a cruise on the St Francis canals, fol-

lowed by dinner with their host, the Cape St Francis Resort. On Saturday morning the group was transported to Mostertshoek where they continued their hike with a 15,5km stretch to Port St Francis. Their guide, Eric Stewart from the Chokka Trail, showed them the blowhole, an unknown grave, and the remains of the Osprey and Cape Recife shipwrecks before they stopped at the SANCCOB Sea Bird Rehabilitation Centre at Seal Point for a guided tour of the facility. They then hiked to Port St Francis via Shark Point, where they enjoyed a tasting of calamari and local wine at Loligo’s Restaurant. On Sunday morning after breakfast the group departed for home. “We are delighted that the MEC chose the Kouga to celebrate Tourism Month,” says Mrs Carleen Arends, Director Tourism at the Kouga Municipality. “This is a direct result of our participation at Indaba, and I want to congratulate our team from the Kouga LTO for their dedication and hard work to promote our area.” The Walk on the Wild Side is a shorter version of the Chokka Trail, a slack packing trail between Oyster Bay, St Francis Bay as well as Cape St Francis.

‘IT IS THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE THAT YOU MISS THE MOST’

Alwyn facing his greatest challenge MONIQUE BASSON HE was an adventure-seeking and sport-loving young man until a fall left him paralysed and facing his greatest challenge yet – to walk again. Thanks to grim determination and the unwavering support of friends and family, and even those unknown, that dream is now becoming a reality. Alwyn Uys will be leaving for Australia on September 25 where he will receive treatment from Ken Ware, the founder of NeuroPhysics Functional Movement Centre, which recently saw John Maclean - a paraplegic ironman athlete - walking after 25 year in a wheelchair. “I long to get back on my feet to be able to walk on the beach or just to walk up a flight of steps. It is the little things in life that you miss the most once they are gone,” says Uys from Patensie who was left paralysed from the chest down after a car accident nine months ago. “Doctors said that I would never walk again. However, I chose not to give up on my dream to

walk again. Today, I can move my legs a little - something that was not even thought possible.” The accident that changed his whole life, happened near Kirkwood on December 13 while he was on his way to visit a friend. “I took my eyes off the road for a second. The left front wheel veered of the road and I jerked the steering wheel to try and get back on the road. I lost control of the car and I swerved across the road. As soon as the car went off the road it flipped and I was tossed out on the passenger side,” says Uys. Due to two shoulder operations the previous day and his arm being in a sling, he was not wearing a safety belt. “I woke up next to my car where someone found me shortly after the accident. I tried to get up, but my whole body was cold and I could not move my legs. That was when I knew I was very badly hurt. I had broken my back and cracked my neck,” says Uys. “My life took a complete turnaround. Being an active person, it was my worst fear not being physically able to do what I love: exercise, sports and mountain hiking. I had to find myself and rediscover who I was. I had to learn to overcome this challenge. My faith has

grown immeasurably and I do not think I would have been so close to God if this had not happened. I had two options: accept this new debilitating lifestyle or do all that I can to walk again. I chose the latter of course.” In an effort to raise the necessary funds to go to Australia and receive the therapy, Uys established the Alwyn Uys Foundation. What started as a foundation for one person, soon evolved into something much bigger. “There are thousands of people in a similar situation and who do not have the resources to attend this type of therapy, thus having almost no chance of ever walking again. Once on my feet, I would like to continue with the fundraising projects and bring this unique therapy to South Africa,” says Uys. “We are also looking into the option of opening up a special area at a fitness centre in Jeffreys Bay to make this therapy more commercially available. According to Uys, he truly has a passion to help others as he is fortunate enough to have the necessary resources at his disposal. “Once I am able to walk again, I will venture to get into more public speaking to motivate

and inspire people. People need to see what is possible in life.” For more information, visit the Alwyn Uys Foundation Facebook Page at https:// www.facebook.com/Get-Alwyn-back-on-hisfeet-1570950156520813/timeline/.

‘Ek is dankbaar . . . ek kan loop’ MONIQUE BASSON “EK is dankbaar . . . ek kan loop.”

Danksy skenings van individue, familie, vriende en maatskappy kan Edward McLean van Jeffreysbaai weer loop. FOTO:MONIQUE BASSON

Dit is die woorde van ’n plaaslike inwoner, Edward McLean (56), wat danksy skenkings van individue, familie, vriende en maatskappy onlangs sy eerste heupvervangingoperasie ondergaan het. “Ek is so dankbaar teenoor almal wat my ondersteun het. Ek kan nou weer loop. Ek kan nie ophou dankie sê nie, want was dit nie vir die groot harte van almal nie, sou ek nooit so ver gekom het nie,” sê McLean. “Ek kan loop en dit is vir my genoeg inspirasie om aan te hou met geldinsamelingspogings om my tweede heupvervanging te kry.” Die McLean-gesin van Jeffreysbaai moes R40 000 insamel vir ’n dringende heupvervanging, of McLean kon die gebruik van sy

linkerbeen vir goed verloor het. Sy regterheup is bykans heeltemal verkrummel en sal in Februarie 2016 vervang word. Die operasie self word gratis by die George Provinsiale Hospitaal uitgevoer, maar McLean moet vir die prostese betaal. Sedert sy heupe begin verkrummel het as gevolg van die langdurige gebruik van medikasie, was daar nie ’n dag wat hy nie in pyn geleef het nie. Nou, slegs ’n paar weke na die eerste operasie in Julie, kan McLean vir die eerste keer in jare sy linkerbeen reguit maak en met die hulp van krukke loop. McLean vertel hy het vroeër vandeesmaand besluit vandag is die dag wat hy loop. So gesê, so gedaan. Hy het op 3 September sy eerste tree na die operasie gegee. “Die pyn is weg,” sê hy met ’n aansteeklike glimlag. “Ek kan weer skilder en musiek speel.” Visvang en swem, van sy groot

liefdes, is weer moontlik en hy kan weer sy plek in die kerk volstaan. McLean het groot planne vir die toekoms. Hy beoog om binnekort sy eie Christelike album op te neem. “In die jare wat ek skaars ’n tree uit die huis kon beweeg, het ek baie tyd gehad om liedere te skryf,” sê McLean wat ’n groot liefde vir musiek het. “Die lied wat my die naaste aan die hart lê, is He holds my hand. Ek weet nie wat die toekoms inhou nie, maar met God aan my sy, sien ek vir alles kans. “Wanneer ek weer heeltemal op die been is, gaan ek dit my missie maak om ander mense in ’n soorgelyke posisie as ek te help. Ek wil die stem wees vir al die mense wat vir jare op ’n heupvervanging wag. Dit is my droom om ’n organisasie, die Hip Prosthetic Foundation, op die been te bring om fondse in te samel vir mense wat ’n heupvervanging benodig.”

Township tour – discover the magic

NEWS 9

Visit Seal Point Lighthouse and shipwrecks ESTI STEWART WITH Tourism and Heritage Month both being celebrated in September, it only makes sense to visit the only lighthouse in the Kouga, and some of the shipwrecks whose remains can still be seen on the coastline.

MONIQUE BASSON THE beauty of Jeffreys Bay is legendary, but the town’s attractions include more than the beach, the best righthand waves, mountains and farmlands. There is another side to Jeffreys Bay that visitors are immediately confronted with upon arrival, but often do no more than drive by in uncomfortable dismay. Yet, the outskirts of the town hold many hidden gems waiting to be discovered or rediscovered. The many visitors, and locals, who do embark on a township tour will in all probability find the experience to be the most memorable and profound of their visit to Jeffreys Bay as they will discover that the dilapidated appearance belies a vibrant and vital local culture, (Ubuntu) humanity, history and fortitude. I recently had the opportunity to enter the caverns of two local townships, Pellsrus and Tokyo Sexwale – leaving me with a better understanding of its unique culture. The township tour by JBay Adventures offers a great way to explore the vibrant informal settlements and interact with local residents. Visiting a traditional healer, ‘shopping at a local spaza shop’, looking upon the graves of the first residents of the area and enjoying a ‘cold’ one at a shebeen offer ideal opportunities to savour the flavour of township life. The three-hour tour takes you on foot through the streets of Pellsrus to Tokyo Sexwale - all while the very knowledgeable tour guide, Mzoxolo Goodman, gives a holistic understanding of the past political history with the present struggle for social and economic freedom felt by those in township communities across the country. Goodman, who has been a tour guide for over eight years, does not plan his trips beforehand. He tells it as the different places speak to him. Tour groups are kept small so that visits are intimate and encroachment on residents’ homes is minimal. Expect to be pleasantly surprised by the ingenuity of the place. This is reflected in daily life as people go about their business. Where else but in a township would you expect to find a metal shipping container cleverly renovated to reveal a thriving hair salon? This is where you will get to see a salon client energetically tapping her foot in time to a lively song booming from the radio. At the same time her hairdresser bops along with her, all while dexterously manoeuvring and sewing in her lady’s weave.

Our first stop was at the grave sites of some of the first fishermen in Jeffreys Bay. According to Goodman some of the graves date back to the early 1800s. “They found their last resting place close to their first love and passion – the sea,” says Goodman. I have driven in Duineweg in Pellsrus many times, but never before noticed the white crosses among the overgrown bushes behind the high fence on the side of the road. Just a few kilometres further, lie the dilapidated graves of some of the first inhabitants of Pellsrus, which is near impossible to see beneath all the rubbish and overgrown grass and bushes – a truly sad face. William Bell and his wife Johanna (born Ferreira) was laid to rest here in 1939 and 1953 respectively. Their closest neighbour is Bertha Hannah who was born in 1868 and died in 1922. After a quick visit to the local spaza shop and preschool, we headed off to the traditional healer – only known as Madlamini – in Tokyo Sexwale. While we were sitting in her small room, sunlight streamed through the small cracks between the wooden planks that make up the walls, illuminating roots, plants and herbs hanging from the roof and walls, and flecks of dust lazily spinning through the air. Here we were introduced to the ‘magic’ of Tokolosh Salt that keeps evil spirits away and Answer that will make your husband forgive and love you again after you have had a heated disagreement. Then there is also Storm – a root of which you insert a small piece under the skin of your one hand. If a bad person is approaching you, your arm will start to vibrate – warning you about the approaching danger. You will also be able to hit the person with the same arm – veering off the danger. If there is bad feelings between you and your neighbour you can wash your face with Mpendulo and all will be forgiven, or if you are speeding under the influence make sure you have some Phuncoka Bemphethe with you to make your violations invisible to the traffic cops if they should pull you over. Appreciation for her time and sharing of her knowledge is shown by saying very loudly Gcamagu and placing an amount as told to you by the ancestors on the ground before you leave. On route back, we stopped at a local tavern - Shipo’s Tavern - where we not only enjoyed something cold, but also made new friends. This is a fabulous tour for any visitor or local wanting to really understand and experience the past, the present and to get a glimpse into the future of Jeffreys Bay.

Our Kouga coastline claimed many vessels over past centuries, and the Seal Point Lighthouse was completed in 1878 in order to assist vessels passing the second southernmost point of Africa. The Lighthouse, standing at 27,75m, is the tallest masonry lighthouse in South Africa and still fully operational, although without a lighthouse keeper on the premises. It was originally equipped with a 3-wick burner and had an intensity of 15 000 candelas, providing a single white flash every 20 seconds. In May 1906 it was changed to a petroleum vapour burner, increasing the intensity to 120 000 candelas, and the characteristic changed to one flash every 5 seconds, as it is today. The intensity of the electrical bulb however is now that of 2 750 000 candelas. The lighthouse boasts a modern radio beacon, a fog signal and fog detector. Close to Seal Point Lighthouse, the wreck of the Cape Recife lies a few hundred metres to the west. The accident occured in February 1929, and many pieces of the wreck can still be seen in the gully during lowtide where she was grounded. Her propeller was salvaged by founder of St Francis Bay, Leighton Hulett using his fishing vessel Moby Dick in 1979. Further west, on the Wild Side, lies the boiler of the HMS Osprey, a Royal Navy warship that was returning from China. This happened during the night of 29/30 May 1867. The Osprey carried a crew of 83 of whom only Stoker George Devreaux drowned whilst trying to bring a hawer from ship to shore. Today the HMS Osprey’s anchor beautifies the entrance of Cape St Francis. On 22 July 1870 the Dutch East Indiaman, the Nederlandsche Vlag was lost when 12 crew members drowned. In September 1870 a sailing vessel, Liza & Alice wrecked, but no lives were lost. Very little remains, but parts are still visible in the rock pools at low water. Other ships lost in the small area were the Berwick on 30 June 1827, Auguste on 22 January 1858, the Runnymede on 6 February 1866, the Milford on 12 October 1875, the British Duke on 13 November 1880 and the Derby on 27 April 1895. A shipwreck still standing tall on the coastline is Meng Yaw 366, a Taiwanese trawler that came ashore at Brakkeduine, west of Seal Point on 2 June 1989. Some 850 tons of frozen chokka aboard her was lost, and her bunker fuel pumped ashore and burnt off to prevent pollution. WIN! WIN! WIN! To stand a chance to win an unforgettable breakaway, take a photo of any historical site in the Kouga region and send it to kougaexp@media24.com before noon on September 30. The photo must be accompanied by a short description of the specific site, the date the photo was taken and contact details of the sender.

BILLABONG JUNIOR SERIES

Williams favourite to take win THE final event in the Billabong Junior Series 2015 is set to take place at Seal Point from September 25 to 27. This exciting finish to the two-part series will take place at the point-break and will see the best junior surfers in the country battling it out for points and prize money, as well as the glory of winning a Billabong Junior Series event. The series has been around since 1997 and many good surfers have emerged from this training ground to either continue as a successful professional surfer or to delve into another area within the surfing career fold. “We’re obviously very proud of the Billabong Junior Series,” says Billabong South Africa Marketing Manager Chad D’Arcy. “It has been the stepping stone for many of our best surfers, and we wish to see this process going forward. We have also incorporated the Billabong SA Junior Champs into our fold where we can continue along the same lines of nurturing and coaching our kids.” One surfer who has started enjoying good success in the Billabong Junior Series is

young Sebastian Williams. Originally from Mexico, Sebastian now calls JBay home, and surfs and trains on the waves of Supertubes, as well as Bruces Beauties in St Francis Bay and Seal Point in Cape St Francis. He is a powerful natural-footer and has proven himself in right-hand point-breaks in the past. He is leading the u.16-division after a convincing win in the first event in the Billabong Junior Series, held at Magnatubes in JBay in July. Sebastian is the son of legendary South African surfer Tim Williams. Tim is an established surfer who had travelled the world and worked within the surf industry before setting up camp at a perfect wave in Mexico a few years ago. It was here, in the warm water of Mexico, that Sebastian honed his talent and emerged as one of the best junior surfers in the world. He has been on the Surfer Magazine Hot 100 list for five years. Every year in their May issue Surfer Magazine publishes their definitive guide to the world’s best young surfers, and Sebastian is currently rated sixth in the world on this list.

Local surfer, Sebastian Williams, is a favourite for the u.16 win in the Billabong Junior Series.

Langasem Valentino skop stof in oë MONIQUE BASSON DIÉ langasem van Jeffreysbaai het net-net ’n plek in die Suid-Afrikaanse Landloop-kampioenskappe gemis, maar met sy wennershouding en vasberadenheid gaan Valentino Verwey nog vele gesoute teenstanders in die stof laat byt. Alhoewel hy vir net meer as twee jaar aan langafstandnaellope deelneem, ryg hy die goue medaljes en rekords in. Valentino het sedert April vanjaar ses liga wedstryde in die o.13-ouderdomsgroep ingepalm, ’n goue medalje by die Sarah Baart Champs verower en sewende by die OP Landloop-proewe geëindig. Met ’n rekordtyd en persoonlike beste van 09:54 het Valentino tydens die Cacadu Landloop-kampioenskappe in Umtata verlede jaar amper 40 sekondes en 300m voor sy naaste teenstander gekom. In 2014 het hy tydens die Cacadu-atletiekbyeenkoms in Port Elizabeth ’n nuwe rekord in die 1 200m vir seuns o.12 opgestel met ’n tyd van 03:48:78. Volgens sy pa, Chris Verwey, het hy net een dag besluit om te begin hardloop. “Ek onthou nog die dag soos gister. Hy het op 17 November 2012 met ’n skoolkoerant by die huis gekom. In die koerant was daar ’n berig oor die opkomende atletiekkompetisie. Valentino het daar en dan besluit dat hy ook wil deelneem. Ek het nog probeer walgooi en gesê hy het dan nog nie ’n steek geoefen nie.

“Maar daar was geen keer aan hom nie. Vir die volgende 12 dae het ons elke dag hard geoefen en groot was ons verbasing toe hy tweede tydens die kompetisie eindig het.” Chris, wat self ’n voormalige OP-landloopatleet is, het Valentino sedert November 2012 afgerig. Hy word sedert September 2013 deur

gaan behoorlik woeker met die talente wat die liewe Vader hom gegee het.” Met die landloopseisoen op sy rug, berei Valentino hom nou voor vir die atletiek- en krieketseisoen.
