GTM disgraced Francois Aucamp

Tolmay brought an urgent application in the North Gauteng High Court, claiming that the tender process was flawed. Judge Tuchten found that QPH had indeed made out a prima facie case supporting their allegation that the tender process was flawed. The nett result of the urgent interdict is that all work on the project had to be stopped and

everybody now has to wait for a review application. QPH’s attorney, Mr Stephan van Rensburg, said they will file a review application by Monday, so as to finalise the matter as quickly as possible. The matter that we reported about in March revolved around the construction of a road between Sasekani and Nkowankowa. Mac P Construction filed an urgent application against the GTM and their contractor, Makgetsi Construction Enterprises. In that application the judge found that there was a strong prima facie possibility of serious irregularities in the tender process. Judge Tuchten did not spare the rod and said it is of paramount importance that the residents of a town can expect their local government to make rational decisions and act reasonable in all circumstances. A prominent resident of Tzaneen who prefers not to be dragged into a debate in the media said to us yesterday “the GTM is now on the same road of perdition as the Mopani District Municipality, wasting ratepayers’ money to try and defend their botched work”. The Bulletin has information pertaining to at least four more entities that are busy with litigation against the GTM and many more millions might be needed to settle these matters. Watch this space.

he was arrested in a police trap in February 2010. The trap was held within the Musina area, with the aim of catching corrupt officials who sabotage the course of justice by predetermining the sentence of vehicle theft cases by means of a plea agreement. The three accused allegedly also received bribe money in murder and rape cases. The case against Rambau and his co-accused, prosecutor Estene Willemse and attorney T E Lubisi, is set to continue in Musina on 21 May. All three pleaded not guilty to the charges. Rambau was also accused of compiling a hit list, allegedly conspiring to have some of the witnesses murdered. He was arrested in January 2011, after a warrant for his arrest

was issued in Giyani. This case was withdrawn in August last year, presumably to give the police more time to investigate the allegations. Rambau’s legal representative argued that the case had no merits. In April this year, Rambau’s legal team served papers on no fewer than eleven parties, accusing them of, among others, his unlawful arrest and prosecution. In these papers, the arrest is described as malicious and without reasonable or probable cause. Rambau’s legal team argues that, through these actions, he had been deprived of the preservation of his status as a senior magistrate and suffered physical and psychological trauma whilst in jail. He claims just over R21 million in damages from the parties, which include the police officers who arrested him and investigated the case, the national director of public prosecutions and the Ministers of Police and Justice. — LiN Media/Zoutpansberger

Season of Trouble

road works tender incident the Greater Tzaneen Municipality (GTM) has ‘Dwelmsmous’ in GLM badly Tzaneen gevang in the red been disgraced in court again — only five weeks after the Bulletin exclusively reported about a court ruling against the GTM in another matter. We warned on the front page of our 3 March edition that “the GTM’s season of trouble has begun”. It now seems that it could become a hectic and long season for the GTM — and very costly too, since they were ordered to pay all costs in the previous ruling and in the latest ruling the judge again made a cost ruling against the GTM! The latest problem revolves around a R10 million tender for the construction of a “new” Claude Wheatley Street along the Letaba River. Makasana Construction’s tender for the work was accepted by the GTM, despite the fact that Makasana had initially been disqualified. Quality Plant Hire (QPH) of Mr Ettienne Foto: Louis Roux

Vlieg praat met die Volk en krap waar dit jeuk...

Vlieg is dankbaar, en hy is seker so ook is sekere pedagoë en besmeerraadlede dankbaar dat daar die laaste week of twee ander stories opgeduik het om die aandag ‘n bietjie van die derby-debakel af te trek. Vlieg dink hier onwillekeurig aan Etoli, Place of Tolls, die her-dreigemente van die dorp se grootdoop, Victor se terugkeer as Bokkaptein, of (hopelik) nie, en natuurlik die langverwagte ontdekking van die G-kol! Maar voordat die opvoedkundiges nog meer op hul louere rus as gewoonlik, moet Vlieg hulle herinner daaraan dat hulle nog steeds met ‘n Vliegoog dopgehou word, al dink hulle nie so nie. Magnum MooEye en sy besmeerraadkamerade het v.i. (Vliegs insiens) nou wel die derby-toets gedop, ten spyte daarvan dat hulle tot dusver vriend en vyand op ander terreine beïndruk het. Gelukkig is daar nog genoeg van die jaar oor om te herstel en symste vriend en vyand hou hulle fyn dop. Vlieg oorweeg dit selfs om hierdie komende winter ‘n das by sy

kortmouhemp te dra. Dit lyk vir Vlieg ook of daar darem nou nie meer asem opgehou word duskant die dam nie. Vlieg en heel ander vriende en vyande is dit eens dat Den Yssen begin smelt het toe dit eers uit die Swart skaduwee uitgekom het en nogal goed afgaan. Nogal ‘n aangename verfrissende lafenis. Dis net dat Vlieg ‘n reguit vorentoe handskud gewoond is, en sukkel nog om daai “move” reg te kry! Vlieg en vriende en vyande is selfs verras oor die Primêre sportvertonings wat Willeswaar met rasse skrede verbeter het. Maar daar is tog ‘n groot bekommernis oor die voorgestelde oplossing daarvoor om te keer dat die akademiese program so inmeng met al die aktiwiteite, al is dit dan net Maandagaktiwiteite! Dit mag dalk op die oog af na ‘n Rijn gedagte lyk om die akademiese toetse sommer summier af te stel, maar Vlieg is nie so seker oor die opvoedkundige waarde daarvan nie. Yes, Yes, Yes?

Die mense hoor

Let wel: Hulle sê nie so nie! • Wimpie sê dit is nie net die stof wat trek as daai seiljag anker gooi in Houtbaai nie, dit gebeur so vinnig, weet Wimpie te vertel, dat jy eintlik net sien klippe spat... • Dit is nie net seiljagte wat so kan briek trek nie, die nuwe Toyota is self nie ‘n stuk gereedskap om te onderskat nie. Dit versnel weer so vinnig dat jy net klippe sien spat... • As mense meer hieroor wil weet, kan hulle skryf om te vra vir ‘n geleentheid om die sieljag van naderby te beskou. Of die Toyota. Rig u brief aan: Snuffels, PK Hout-

baai, Kaap... • Die ou rakker met die kapoen sportmotor (nie Avis s’n nie!) is nog springlewendig as die bevolkingsaanwas aandag verdien. As daar nou nie êrens ‘n short gekom het in die bedradings nie, is hy kapabel en help verder... • Barend sê toe die verkeersman hom vra om uit te klim en hy vir die verkeersman sê “ek is te dronk om uit te klim, klim jy maar in”, het hy die diener so ge-”rattle” dat hy maar net kon lag en vir hom, dis nou Barend, gesê het hy moet maar sy ry kry......

Mothers hold their child’s hand for a while but their heart forever.

Shortage of medicine worries The medicine shortage at the Letaba, Phalaborwa and Van Velden hospitals has deteriorated to a point where it has now become critical. Bulletin has made a number of enquiries about the situation since the beginning of the year, but is has been flatly denied that any shortages have been experienced. However, we have reliably learnt that the Mediclinic Tzaneen has been requested to help with medical supplies a number of times in the past couple of months. In the meantime the DA leader in Limpopo, Ms Desiree van der Walt, and members of her team, have been done a survey. They found that there was indeed a serious shortage of essential medical supplies. She announced on Tuesday that she will be writing to the MEC of Health and Social Development, dr Norman Mabasa, to seek an urgent meeting with him, to discuss the issue of the

Still no text books

Urgent forensic investigation urged by DA shortage of medicine in Limpopo’s public health care system. This situation is largely attributable to the irregular awarding of pharmaceutical contracts and the mismanagement of Limpopo’s provincial pharmaceutical depot in Seshego. The worrying situation at the depot was revealed to the DA last week by concerned employees at the depot, who spoke to them on condition that that they remained anonymous. Van der Walt says the employees pointed out serious illegal activities at the depot. “Serious allegations of a collusion between private pharmacists and officials at the depot to exchange drugs that are about to expire with

An urgent application in the High Court against the minister of basic education and the Limpopo department of education in relation to their failure to procure and deliver textbooks for pupils in Limpopo will be heard on Monday. The academic year is almost halfway gone, yet pupils in Grades R, 1, 2, 3 & 10 still do not have textbooks. Textbooks have not been ordered and there is no indication as to when

fresh stock. Theft of drugs also seem to be rife at the depot. “Conditions at the depot are so deplorable that medicine to save lives shouldn’t be kept there. During our meeting with the employees, it transpired that all these problems began to emerge when the warehousing, procurement of medicine and distribution was outsourced by the department to Vuna Healthcare Solutions in 1995. “Allegedly this company has close ties with members of the ruling party”, Van der Walt said. “When the outsourcing deal had come to an end, the department officially hired the former manager of Vuna to oversee the depot. “The MEC must urgently intervene to ensure that our province enjoys an adequate and uninterrupted supply of medicine. He should also launch a forensic investigation, to root out corruption in the awarding of pharmaceutical contracts,” she said.

final orders for textbooks will be submitted. The application asks for an order directing the departments: To provide textbooks to pupils who have been without textbooks since the commencement of the academic year; and To put in place a “catch-up” plan to provide additional classes to pupils until their lost curriculum is recovered.

Limpopo-skole kry ‘n geelkaart Limpopo se rugbyskeidsregters is keelvol vir die voortdurende beledigings en selfs dreigemente waarmee hulle op skolevlak getreiter word, en hulle het nou die spreekwoordelike streep in die sand getrek. Dreig of beledig (belaster) weer een van ons skeidsregters en hy onttrek daar en dan — en dit beteken ook dat die skeidsregter van die veld sal stap, selfs as ‘n wedstryd al aan die gang is, waarsku mnr Johan Venter, die voorsitter van die Blou Bulle Skeidsregtersvereniging Limpopo. Die onlangse voorval waarin ‘n skeidsregter katswink met die kop deur ‘n skoolseun van Hans Strijdom geslaan is, was die laaste strooi wat betref die fisieke aanranding van ‘n skeidsregter. Die verbale aanvalle op skeidsregters het die fluitjieblasers nou ook keelvol en ‘n voorval die afgelope Saterdag op Lephalale, waar ‘n skeidsregter se karakter glo erg aangetas is, is Maandagaand indringend op ‘n vergadering van die skeidsregters bespreek. ‘n Senior bestuurslid van Limpopo se skolerugbyvereniging het die vergadering bygewoon en moes na verneem word lelik bont staan om te keer dat Limpopo se skeidsregters nie besluit om voortaan nie vir enige rugbywedstryd waarin enige span van die betrokke skool speel, ’n skeidsregter beskikbaar te stel nie.

Daar sal nou ‘n brief aan skole in die provinsie gestuur word, om te waarsku dat as die teistering van skeidsregters voortduur, Limpopo se skeidsregters nie vir wedstryde van skole waarby die wangedrag toegelaat word, beskikbaar sal wees nie. Senior skeidsregters van die vereniging sê dit is sorgwekkend dat dit meesal onderwysers is wat ook rugby afrig, wat nie huiwer om voor die seuns skeidsregters sleg te sê, te beledig en selfs van oneerlikheid te beskuldig nie. Dit is asof ‘n gees van losbandige gebrek aan selfdissipline en skaamtelose belastering van skeidsregters by sommige skole-afrigters uitgebreek het. Dit laat mense wonder of die wenmotief by skole nou so oorheersend geraak het dat alle ander aspekte van die opvoedkunde oorboord gegooi word, sê ‘n oud-skeidsregter wat in ongeloof luister na wat skeidsregters deesdae moet verduur. Venter sê in Limpopo is daar enkele skuldiges wat veroorsaak dat skeidsregters se geduld op is. “Dit is egter nie vir die skeidsregters om voor te skryf hoe die probleem deur skole bestuur moet word nie. Maar ons sal ons skeidsregters beskerm en as afrigters nie dissipline kan handhaaf nie, wat selfdissipline insluit, sal ons gewoon onttrek en dan kan die skole maar sien en kom klaar,” sê Venter.

Johan in sy fleur weggeskeur Een van Letsitele se nuwe geslag-boere, mnr Johann van Veijeren (28), is Saterdagaand na ‘n motorongeluk op die Eiland-pad (by die ingang na mnr Milan Thalwitzer se plaas) dood, toe sy voertuig van die pad geloop en teen ‘n palmboom gebots het. Van Veijeren was ‘n oud-leerling van die Hoërskool Ben Vorster. Na dat hy afgestudeer het, het hy saam met sy pa, Gustav, op die plaas Constantia gaan boer. Hy is verlede jaar op 16 April met me Candice Schulze getroud. Hy word oorleef deur sy vrou Candice, sy seun, Gus-

tav (Klein Dude), sy ouers, Gustav en Sarie, en sy suster, Karla. Wyle Johan het aktief aan boerderybe-drywighede deelgeneem en was ‘n bestuurslid van hul plaaslike boerevereniging. Sy ouers is prominent en meelewend in die gemeenskapslewe. Die familie het gevra om die geleentheid te gebruik om almal vir gebede, ondersteuning, oproepe, boodskappe, besoeke, ensovoorts, te bedank. Dit word opreg gewaardeer en dra hulle deur die moeilike tyd. ‘n Gedenkdiens vir Johan is Woensdag in die NG Kerk Letsitele gehou.

Op 90 oorlede Me Nancy Mostert, ‘n inwoner van Tzaneen reeds sedert 1940, is op 20 Maart in die ouderdom van 90 jaar dood. Sy laat vier kinders, Jacobus, Cecelia, Tonie en Louisa, asook agt kleinkinders en veertien agterkleinkinders agter.

‘n Nuwe wêreldrekord vir worsbraai is in Mokopane opgestel, toe ‘n stuk wors van 630,03 meter lank gebraai is. Daar is 277 kilogram beesvleis, 95 kg varkvleis, 20 kg speserye, 2 liter Worcestersous, 1 liter asyn, 5 liter water en 10 bondels derms

BESKOU DIT AS ’N GEGEWE PERD WAT JY DALK IN DIE BEK GAAN KYK Elke nou en dan gebeur dit dat ons ’n kans kry wat nie onmiddellik in die oog spring nie. Gevolglik is ons geneig om dit te ignoreer en deur ons vingers te laat glip. Maar mettertyd word dit duidelik dat dit die spreekwoordelike gegewe perd was en kan ons onsself skop dat ons dit nie met albei hande aangegryp het toe ons die kans gehad het nie. Een so ’n kans is die Klassieke 5 Beleggingsreeks van Old Mutual. Vyf handuitgesoekte effektetrusts wat in die jare vorentoe opbrengste sal lewer waarvan jy maar net kon droom. Selfs al sit jy nou net ’n klein bedraggie opsy, kan dit groot uitbetalings beteken, danksy die krag van saamgestelde groei met verloop van tyd. En as jy bang is dit gaan jou te veel bind, ontspan! • Effektetrusts sal jou nie bind nie. • Jy kan binne ’n dag toegang tot jou geld kry – sonder boetes. • Jy kan maandelikse betalings oorslaan. Weer eens, geen boetes nie. • En geen aanvanklike administrasiefooie nie – jou geld werk dus van dag een af vir jou. Soos alle geleenthede in die lewe – hoe gouer jy dit aangryp, hoe beter.

Skole en rugby

Skolerugby het vanjaar al ‘n paar liederlike skandes op hul kerfstok gekry, terwyl die jaar skaars vier maande oud is en die rugbyseisoen slegs twee maande. Die jongste nuus is dat Limpopo se skeidsregters, wat onder die sambreel van die Blou Bulle Rugby-unie sit, nou keelvol is vir skoolseuns wat nog nat agter die ore is, en afrigters wat verteer word deur die wenmotief — en met hul bedenklike gedrag skeidsregters se lewens onnodig vergal. Wat is aan die gang? Het ons dan sulke swak verloorders geraak? Is ons besig om perspektief te verloor in ons verafgoding van ‘n spel? Is ouers deesdae so lamsakkig dat hulle nie meer hul seuns kan dissiplineer en help lei nie? En afrigters (sommige onderwysers)? Het hulle vergeet hulle werk met jong mense wat nog nie emosioneel heel volwasse is en nog nie ryk lewenservaring het nie? Voel hulle in hul eer gekrenk as hul span(ne) verloor? Vergeet hulle dat hul primêre taak steeds is om die kinders akademies by te staan, en dat sport (rugby) nie die alfa en die omega van opvoeding en kennisverryking is nie? Daar is ‘n groot nood vir baie ernstige selfondersoek in skolerugby, veral ook wat betref die toenemende kommersialisering daarvan. Vir wat deesdae op en langs skole se rugbyvelde gebeur, is daar in ‘n beskaafde samelewing nie ruimte nie. Of stap ons die pad van die Romeine? Is ons besig met selfvernietigende verlaging van morele en etiese standaarde? Is ons vasgevang in ‘n spiraal van gejaag na geld, gejaag na roem en eer, gejaag na wen ten alle koste, gejaag na... wat?

Dankie Anette Eastes, SAVF Kleuterskool Tzaneen, skryf: Na die pas afgelope Tzaneen Eisteddfod, wil ons graag Melanie Botha, die organiseerder van die Afrikaanse Eisteddfod, en Ursula Schoeman, die organiseerder van die Engelse Eisteddfod, bedank vir hul puik reëlings. Ure se organisasie en nagte se beplanning is ingesit om die program vir ongeveer 300 deelnemers te laat slaag. Sertifikate is gedruk — en dit alles sonder betaling. Melanie en Ursula, wees verseker ons as onderwysers, ouers en deelnemers waardeer jul diens aan Tzaneen se gemeenskap.

Relief DA Councillor Luke Perkins, PO Box 70, Haenertsburg, wrtites: I note with relief that the ANC has finally taken a firm decision on something: elected officials should not eat cake in public while celebrating their centenary year. This will no doubt have an effect on the catering business so I hereby commit to eating as much cake in public as I can; this will also show people what life could be like under the DA. I will however not eat and drive at the same time as the traffic officials seem to frown on this; and the only other request I make to the ANC is for the Mayor to stop driving her R700 000 luxury car in public; if she needs to get to remote villages with bad roads she could perhaps trade it in for a quad bike. (And why ARE the roads so bad?)

In ‘n naartjie

Roy Hurter van Tzaneen skryf perf e-pos: Iemand het gesing dat sy nooi in ‘n naartjie en sy ouma in kaneel is. Snaaks hoe mens se gedagtes op die ingewing van die oomblik terug gevoer kan word, sommer so sonder dat jy wil. ‘n Maanlig-nag in die bos neem my terug na Rhodesië of die reuk van boerbok, na my oom se plaas buite Kirkwood. Maar gisteraand was dit die “pits”.


we support any lawful action to end violence against our women and children. Let us al help to spread the message. Ek moet kafee toe, maar dis al na 20:00. Ek weet mos die dorp maak al voor daai tyd toe, maar Ma hou aan en aan en aan... en ek ry maar. Spreuke het mos gepraat van die lekkende dak en ‘n vrou! Elk geval, die winkel is toe en ek besluit die motorhawens se”convenience store” sal dan die ding moet doen. Nou moet ek deur die dorp ry en daar op die hoek, daar by die leë garage, daar langs die sentrum wat nie klaarkom nie, kry ek hierdie “flashback”: Dis Tzaneen, die jaar 2006, en as jy ‘n man van edele inborste is, ry jy nie saans alleen in die strate van hierdie dorp nie. Of as jy moet, stop jy nie by die stoptekens nie want, sien, die “horisontale-stresverligting-werkers” besluit sommer self jy’t stres en wil net verlig! Hier kom toe ‘n nuwe Polisie-Kommissaris wat die klomp “werkers” verjaag het (wonder wat sou gebeur het as hulle hom CCMA toe gevat het). Ek moet sê, na dit was hier minder stres in die dorp en ‘n man kon alleen dorp-toe ry. Maar dis 2012 en “hulle” is terug! In volle swang, sonder om dit te probeer wegsteek (sic), sonder ‘n sweempie vrees vir die gereg! Aan die nuwe Kommisaris: hulle kan jou nie CCMA toe vat nie; hulle kan jou nie van diskriminasie beskuldig nie; hul optrede het niks met rassehaat te doen nie. Hulle oortree die wette van die land en dis jou plig om iets daadwerkliks daaraan te doen. Ons, die inwoners van Tzaneen, eis dit van jou en jou personeel. Ons is geregtig daarop om saans, sonder vrees, in ons dorp te kan ry, alleen as dit moet. “Be a man”, en wys ons hoe eerlik jy in jou oortuigings is om Tzaneen die skoonste dorp in die Limpopo te maak. Amandla vir ‘n skoon Tzaneen, amandla!

lankal af dat daar n ouderd o m s beperking op die nuusuitsending op TV geplaas moet word. Hopeloos te veel geweld en al daai dinge wat die jonge verstandjies vir ewig sal beskadig. Shame, dan moet ons as ouers die skuld kry want ons het die arme bloedjies nie die nodige opvoeding gegee nie! Maar kyk, toe ek vanaand die nuus sit en kyk en ek hoor hoe agtien oumense sommer so sonder stamp of stoot, hul enigste heenkome moet ontruim, net oor die DA ‘n buurvrou se ongevoeligheid steun, was dit darem wragtig te dik vir ‘n daalder. Ek glo die beswaarde is seker maar ontstel deur die feit dat sy die goue reël van afge tredenes vergeet het: moenie met ouderdom spot nie, want as jy nie voor die tyd doodgaan nie, kry jy dit self. Of miskien was die realiteit van oud-word te na aan haar been, ek meen nou maar, loer oor die muur en kyk hoe oom Frikkie lekker aan sy gebraaide skaaptjoppie sit en suig. Die tande het mos al jare gelede ingegee, sien. Of miskien was die reuk van Vicks of au de cologne te veel vir haar se konstitusie en het dit haar na haar oupa/ouma laat verlang wat ook in ‘n ouetehuis is en nooit deur haar besoek word nie. Ag, die redes is seker legio, maar niks regverdig die DA om so blatant, een persoon se selfsugtige, onbesonne beswaar tot ‘n politieke vlak te verhef nie. Dit laat my wonder: wat is die DA se rêrige agenda? Waar staan hulle in hul credo om na die belange van die hulpbehoewende om te sien? Is dit beperk tot babas en oumense soen voor die verkiesing, maar as dit gaan om te “produce”, gaan dit om politieke gewin? Laakbaar, om die minste te sê. Ek sidder om te dink dat hierdie mentaliteit die opposisie is en oral verkondig dat hulle oor ‘n paar jaar die land gaan regeer. Eish, ten minste weet ons nou waar

Nee, DA, nee Roy Hurter skryf per e-pos: Kyk, ek sê van

Die Griekse filosoof Epikuros (341 – 270 vC) het gesê: “Of God kan leiding keer, maar Hy wil nie; of Hy wil leiding keer, maar Hy kan nie; of Hy wil nie en Hy kan nie; of Hy wil en Hy kan. As Hy kan, maar Hy wil nie, is Hy nie die God van liefde nie; as Hy wil maar Hy kan nie, is Hy nie almagtig nie; as Hy nie wil nie en nie kan nie, kan ons Hom nie God noem nie; as Hy wil en Hy kan, waarom doen Hy dit dan nie?” Daar is min mense wat nog nie gevra het nie: “Hoekom, Here?” Die vraag oor waarom daar soveel hartseer in die wêreld is, terwyl ons glo God is die God van liefde, sal by ons bly tot aan die einde. Die digter en Bybelvertaler Totius (1877-1953) het twee kinders aan die dood afgestaan. Sy seuntjie is op `n jong ouderdom aan `n infeksie oorlede. Sy tienerdogter is deur weerlig geslaan en het in sy arms gesterf. Totius het ook gevra: “Hoekom, Here?” Ek graaf met my gedagtes Ek graaf met my gedagtes in die geheimenis, en soek of daar geen antwoord op al my raaisels is. Ek graaf nes in ‘n sandhoop met my: Waarom? en Hoe? By elke nuwe poging, dan val die plek weer toe. Ek graaf; maar elke môre begin my werk van voor; ek graaf; maar as ek weg is, skuif snags die sand daaroor. “Helaas, die voorgeslagte (so klink ‘n stem in my) het ook soos jy gegrawe, maar daar’t geen spoor gebly. “Dus, hou maar op met grawe, berusting is so soet; net één ding te gelowe, en dit is: God is goed!” — Totius Mooi naweek!

die geld heengaan, maar wat gaan dan van ons oumense word? En dan het ek so wraggies my kruisie by hulle getrek met die laaste verkiesing. Glo my, ek en baie ander het nie hierdie “curve-ball gesien kom nie. Miskien dit gaan my laaste kruisie vir hulle wees, want, ten spyte van wat die mense sê, ek is mal oor oumense en dink ons skuld hulle so baie, dat ons oud gaan wees by die tyd dat ons hulle terug betaal het. A nee a, DA, “shame on you”.

Thank you

We would like to congratulate the three ‘Warrior’ teams who took all the prizes this year and the excellent result of the hard working ‘Smit Garren’ and ‘Coke’ teams who came second and third under heavy artillery fire. Thanks goes to the other teams (Letaba Expo and Tzandeboo Construction) for helping to make this event such a success and look forward to seeing you all next year.

Gelukkig was dit net na betaaldag ‘n Modderstorting op die plase Red Bank (van dr Theo de Jager) en Diggers Rest (vroeër van mnr Peter Drake en tans die eiendom van ‘n groep van die Makgobas) in Georges Valley het verlede Vrydagoggend die lewe van ‘n 58-jarige plaaswerker geëis, en nog twee in die hospitaal laat beland. Duisende kubieke meter modder het teen ‘n berghang losgeraak en omstreeks 01:30 ‘n plakkerskamp op Diggers Rest getref, en inwoners in hul slaap oorval. Werkers op Red Bank het wakker geword “met die geluid van ‘n helikopter”. Toe hulle uithardloop, het hulle besef dat die geluid deur ‘n modderstorting en meegesleurde klippe veroorsaak is. Dit het ‘n sement opgaardam en vyf plakkerhuise meegesleur, en vyf mense was aanvanklik vermis. Georges Valley se kanaalraad het binne vyftien minute die kanaal afgesluit, en die polisie en nooddienste was ook blitsvinnig op die toneel, om beseerdes af te voer en die vermistes te soek. Die oorledene is onder die rommel van sy huis gevind, waar hy geslaap het. Net vyf van die sewentien inwoners van die huise wat platgevee is, was die nag tuis — omdat hulle die vorige dag hul lone ontvang en vir die naweek weg is. Die ramp is veroorsaak deur ‘n lek-

kasie in die vloer van die kanaal, wat oor ‘n lang tyd ‘n groot volume,water in die berghang vrygestel het. Die styl helling het onder die kanaal ingegee, en ongeveer een hektaar ha plantasie ook weggespoel. Ses boere wat stroomaf uit die kanaal besproei, is vir die winter sonder water. Ongeveer 680 mense het ook water vir primêre gebruik uit die kanaal onttrek, en noodmaatreëls moes vir hulle ingestel word. Boere in die omgewing het onmiddellik ingespring om alternatiewe verblyf beskikbaar te stel, vir slagoffers wie se huise in die slag gebly het. Teen Vrydagaand is alle slagoffers ook deur die boere van klere, kos, komberse en huisraad voorsien. Die Mopani Distriksmunisipaliteit (MDM) het Sondag komberse en matrasse gebring, en het onderneem om na die beskikbaarheid van lopende water om te sien. Die LUR vir landbou het Saterdag die rampperseël besoek. Skade word op etlike miljoene rande geraam, en die kanaalraad kry tans kwotasie vir die herstelwerk. Die hoof van rampbeheer van die MDM, mnr Hannes Visser, lei ‘n reeks onderhandelings met verskeie staatsdepartemente, om noodleniging te koördineer en seker te maak dat alle aspekte van die ramp se gevolge behoorlik oorweeg kan word.

Nou weet mense hoekom heet die plek Red Bank: die grond is rooi, rooi, rooi. Links bo is waar die berg weggekalwe het. Regs bo wys die opdrifsels van die moddervloed hoe erg dit was. Links staan ‘n vrou verslae en kyk of daar iets van haar aardse besittings oorgebly het. Daar het nie! Links onder is ‘n deel van die pad van verwoesting. A op die foto is die bekende saagmeul van Diggers Rest en B is waar die sement-opgaardam was. Onder kom ‘n man wat onder die modder begrawe was, by die nooddienste se versamelpunt aan. Nie eens sy familielede het hom erken nie, totdat iemand hom aan die trui geëien het. Hy was een van die gelukkiges... Foto’s: Francois Aucamp

All I am, I owe to my mother.

Mari Weber, g’n uitgedroogde suurlemoen, vier 30 jaar “Ek onthou hoe ek as kind speels in die tuin rond gehol en dramatiese passies voor denkbeeldige gehore opgevoer het” vertel Mari Weber, gesoute aktrise en bekende drama-onderwyseres van Tzaneen. Weber vier vanjaar haar dertigste jaar as onderwyseres in drama, maar aftree is nie in haar vooruitsigte nie, berig Amelia de Ridder. Alhoewel die uitgesproke aktrise nie maklik oor haarself praat nie, behoort haar suksesse geen geheim te wees nie. Mari is reeds in gr 2 deur haar onderwyseres aangeraai om dramaklasse te neem en sy het vroeg in haar laerskooljare op dié gebied begin floreer. Na sy aan die Hoërskool Ben Vorster gematrikuleer het, is sy Pretoria toe om haar graad in drama by Tuks te verwerf. Kinders was nog altyd haar passie. Alhoewel sy haar pa se winkel heeltyds in Tzaneen bestuur het (nadat hy siek geword het), het sy deeltyds dramaklasse gegee en hier en daar opgetree. Weber het vyf jaar later drama-afrigting haar heeltydse beroep gemaak. “Dit is ‘n harde, veeleisende werk”, vertel sy, “maar wanneer dit by die eindresultaat van ‘n toneelspel of opvoering kom, is dit deur en deur die moeite werd.” Weber is die enigste drama-onderwyser in die omgewing. Sy rig leerlinge tot so ver as Phalaborwa en Polokwane af. Honderde aspi-

rante akteurs en aktrises het al onder Mari se bekwame hande deurgeloop en hulle onder haar vlerk tuisgemaak. Tussen haar klasgee deur skryf sy toesprake, sketse en toneelstukke vir revues, eisteddfods en ander tonele. Sy rig verskeie produksies af en doen die afronding daarvan. Sy bied ook lisensiaatkursusse aan dramastudente. Weber is al negentien jaar deel van die Raad van Afrikaanse Beoordelaars en sy is lektor by die Spraak- en Dramakollege van SA. Weber spot dat sy geen uitgedroogde suurlemoen is nie. Haar leerlinge hou haar jonk en dit is vir haar belangrik om op hul vlak te bly. Vir haar gaan haar werk nie oor roem nie, maar eerder om vir kinders in ‘n stukkende wêreld standvastig te wees en ‘n “veilige plekkie” te bied. Sy sal nog graag ‘n handboek vir dramaonderwysers wil skryf en moontlik nog ‘n radio-drama op haar kerfstok sit. Op die foto links is ‘n jeugdige Weber in aksie met ‘n dramatiese voordrag en bo is sy saam met van haar studente by Merensky. Weber voer op 12 Mei haar skreeusnaakse solo-vertoning, Bikini Blues vir ‘n laaste keer op. Kaartjies kos R100 en is by Bobbie Haynes (083 417 1914) of Debbie Kruger (079 515 0178) beskikbaar.

Tribal war looms in MDM

Culinary safari to help SAVF The TzaneenInfo Culinary Safari — an exclusive charity event — was recently held, showcasing some of Tzaneen’s top venues, menu’s and musical talent. The event raised R12 333,15 for the SAVFTzaneen’s Social Development Fund. The evening’s hostess, Ms Anneke Buys, sales manager and spouse of Dana Buys, the managing partner of Vrede & Lust Wine Estate, took the guests on a four venue (Fairview, YumYum, Tzaneen Country Lodge and Hotel@ Tzaneen), five course safari presenting an extensive tasting of nine Vrede & Lust wines. “I want to thank everybody that contributed to the success of the event, making it possible for us to better the lives of fellow Tzaneeners,” said SAVF volunteer and co-project organizer Lizelle Pienaar.

Present at the handing over of a cheque to the SAVF were Mr Martin Basson (Tzaneeninfo volunteer) and Mss Marcelle Basson (Tzaneeninfo volunteer), Lizelle Pienaar (SAVF volunteer), Ina van Schalkwyk (SAVF Director), Monica Rynhoud (Tzaneeninfo Sales), Liezl Wagenaar (Tzaneeninfo projects) and Charmaine Hartmann (Tzaneeninfo events).

There is no truth whatsoever in the allegations that Tsonga-speaking people are overlooked for employment by the Mopani District Municipality, in favour of Pedi-speaking people. So said the executive mayor of the MDM, Mr Joshua Matlou, this week. A local branch of the SA Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) accused the MDM of practicing tribalism and nepotism. Matlou said the allegations are unfounded, baseless and lacking substance. Samwu and the MDM have been at loggerheads over the appointment of the municipal manager. It was reported that Samwu wanted the municipality a Tsonga-speaking person to be appointed as municipal manager. Samwu branch chairman Steven Mashabane, says the union had embarked on a strike because of the unfair practice within the MDM. “More often than not, Maake overlooks

‘n Bekende baken op die pad van Tzaneen na Nkowankowa, die Yamorna Vulstasie, het ‘n nuwe voorkoms. Dit was ‘n Engen-vulstasie, maar het nou ‘n Viva-baadjie aangetrek. Viva is honderd persent in Suid-Afrikaanse besit. Daar is ook ‘n geriefswinkel en die kompleks word bestuur deur mnr Dries en me Riana Moolman, hier regs saam met die span petroljoggies en winkelassikstente. Regs is die “nuwe” vulstasie.

Tsonga- and Venda-speaking people in favour of Pedi’s. It is wrong that the MDM is now run by a Pedi-speaking municipal manager and a Pedi mayor. It is also painful that the MDM had a chief financial officer, technical director and corporate service director who are all Pedi-speaking,” he said. Matlou refuted the claim, saying people in the MDM were appointed based on merit and qualifications. “Why mention only Pedi-speaking when we also have Tsonga- and Venda-speaking directors? Maake is qualified and knows his work inside out. We cannot, by law, relieve Maake of his duties in an effort to please the union.” The provincial leadership of Samwu has since distanced itself from the comment made by the Samwu branch.

90% of hotline cases resolved The Greater Tzaneen Municipality (GTM) recently hosted the provincial media liaison officers’s monthly meeting. Thirty Limpopo communication officers met to celebrate the 90% presidential hotline cases that have been resolved. The GTM is one of the municipalities that helped reach the 90%. According to GTM spokesman Thulani Twala, these meetings are held monthly to oversee how they can resolve matters being raised by the public. Twala said that the GTM plans to launch a mayoral hotline, to deal with water problems experienced by residents, housing, ID and other problems. “We have hired three trained liaison officers to attend to all the matters and a tender for a call centre will be issued. There is no matter that will be regarded as too small and no caller will be referred to any department,” Twala said.

Murder trial of lawyer is on Sitting in the courtroom bearing a relaxed innocent-look, one can easily mistake Godfrey Ngobeni for a loving father, who’s probably in court for traffic violation or some other minor offence. However, this is the man whose arrival in court is announced by heavily armed police walking side-by-side with his legs and hands tightly shackled against his waist. He’s linked with Gezani Abby Maluleke, one of the top attorneys in Giyani, currently facing charges of attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder against another attorney, Mr Silence Mthombeni. It is alleged that Maluleke hired Ngoveni to kill Mthombeni. However, the attempt failed. The case has been postponed several times, due to technicalities. This prompted the magistrate to warn both parties on Monday when the case went to court, that come 23 July, the case must be heard, no matter what. Meanwhile Ngoveni is linked to other serious charges relating to murder, armed robbery and escape from prison. Orlando Chauke

Florence Nightingale Florence Nightingale was a legend in her lifetime, but the Crimean War years’ which made her famous, were just two out of a lifetime of ninety years. Old Age Although she was bedridden for many years, she campaigned tirelessly to improve health standards, publishing 200 books, reports and pamphlets. In recognition of her hard work, Queen Victoria awarded Miss Nightingale the Royal Red Cross in 1883. In her old age she received many honours, including the Order of Merit (1907), becoming the first woman to receive it. Florence died at home at the age of 90 on 13 August 1910.

Early Years She was born in Italy on 12 May 1820 and was named Florence, after the city where she was born. Her parents, William Edward and Frances Nightingale were a wealthy couple, who had toured Europe for two years on their honeymoon. During their travels their first daughter, Parthenope, was born in Naples (Parthenope being the Greek name for the ancient city), followed one year later by Florence. On returning to England the Nightingales divided their time between two homes. In the summer months they lived at Lea Hurst in Derbyshire, moving to Embley in Hampshire for the winter. Lea Hurst is now a retirement home and Embley is now a school.

Call from God Florence and her sister Parthenope were taught at home by their Cambridge University educated

father. Florence was an academic child while her sister excelled at painting and needlework. Florence grew up to be a lively and attractive young woman, admired in the family’s social circle and she was expected to make a good marriage, but Florence had other concerns. In 1837, whilst in the gardens of Embley, Florence had what she described as her “calling”. Florence heard the voice of God calling her to do His work, but at this time she had no idea what work that would be.

The years of struggle and the visit to Kaiserswerth Florence developed an interest in the social questions of the day, made visits to the homes of the sick in the local villages and began to investigate hospitals and nursing. Her parents refused to allow her to become a nurse, as in the mid-nineteenth century it was not considered a suitable profession for a wel educated woman. While the family conflicts over Florence’s future remained unresolved, it was decided that Florence would tour Europe with some family friends, Charles and Selina Bracebridge. The three travelled the world. Miss Nightingale was the principal advocate of the pavillion plan for hospitals in Britain. Like her friend, the public health reformer Edwin Chadwick, Florence Nightingale believed that infection arose

spontaneously in dirty and poorly ventilated places. The mistaken belief nevertheless led to improvements in hygiene and healthier living and working environments. Florence also advised and eagerly supported one William Rathbone in the development of district nursing in Liverpool and many Nightingale-trained nurses became pioneers in this field.

MEDICLINIC honours its nursing professionals On 12 May every year, Mediclinic takes the opportunity to thank its nursing practitioners for their hard work and commitment to their profession and patients. The significance of the date is that it commemorates the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale’s birthday and marks International Nurses Day. “Our patients are at the heart of our care, but our nursing practitioners are the heart of our hospitals. Their attention to detail ensures orchestrated nursing processes. Their wellhoned expertise allows them to make deliberate, practical decisions in the best interest of their patients. While their compassionate approach soothes and comforts,” says Estelle Jordaan, Nursing Executive, Mediclinic Southern Africa. In recognition of these attributes, Mediclinic Southern Africa presents the Nursing Excellence Award to a nursing practitioner at each hospital. These nursing practitioners, nominated by their peers, patients and their families, epitomise this culture of caring, combined with expertise, and Mediclinic is proud to recognise them in this way. The recipient of the Mediclinic 2012 Nursing Excellence Award will be announced next week. The international nursing theme chosen for this year is “Closing the action” which gap: From evidence to action”, focuses on the best possible application of knowledge in delivering care to provide the most successful outcome for patients. “This is in line with Mediclinic’s ethos of patientcentric care based on a firm scientific foundation,” Jordaan says. “International Nurses’ Day is the one day a year that we are able to dedicate entirely to our nursing practitioners to express our gratitude for the dedication they demonstrate on a daily basis.”

This week’s fitness tip by Ettienne van Wyngaardt (Fitness specialist) Your core consists of all the muscles in your hips, abdomen and back.

Jean Aucamp

Die Hoërskool Merensky het Saterdag ’n treetjie nader aan Limpopo se rugbykroon vir medium skole gegee, toe hulle in hul tweede ligakragmeting teen Frans du Toit te staan gekom het. Die Fransies het hul seisoen vroeër vanjaar baie goed in vriendskaplike kragmetings afgeskop en het Saterdag voorbereid in Plasieland aangekom. Hulle het egter in die o.14’s se kragmeting kort gekom en met 17-5 verloor. Hulle kon hul koppe weer in die o.15’s se wedstryd optel, toe hulle oortuigend gewen het. Maar van daar was dit ’n maklike pad vir die Plasies. In wat sekerlik as die opwindendste kragmeting van die dag beskou is, het Marno vd Meulen, Marno van Wyk, Mike Malatji, Letsego Magagane en Shuka Mbumbela die Plasies se o.16’s tot ’n pragoorwinning van 27-10 aangespoor. Die Ratels het ook nog nie ’n voet verkeerd in die liga gesit nie en die Fransie met 36-7 afgestof. Arno Vorster en Andrew Masedi is elkeen met ’n drie vir hul harde spel beloon. Die oorwinning het getoon dat Merensky dalk oor die diepte beskik wat aan hulle die liga se kroon kan besorg, en was ook net die aansporing wat die eerste span nodig

Letaba klop Dorp vir titel Die Letaba Rugbyklub se eerste span het Saterdag vir nog ’n verrassing in Limpopo se klubrugby gesorg, toe hulle Pietersburg in hul agterplaas gaan stil speel het. Die manne in groen het Pietersburg van meet af aan, soos teen Noordelikes amper ’n maand gelede, voor vasgevat en die spel by die afbreekpunte oorheers. Pietersburg het egter vinnig punte aangeteken, toe Letaba nie die kleinkant dopgehou het nie. Letaba het teruggeveg en kon teen rustyd amper gelyk trek. Pietersburg kon in die tweede helfde nie weer op dreef kom nie en kon slegs op Letaba se foute prooi, om hul telling na 30 punte op te stoot. Letaba het in alle fasette begin oorheers en Dorp het geen antwoorde vir hul harde spel op die grond gehad nie. Een van Dorp se oortredings het hulle duur te staan gekom, toe ’n strafdrie aan Letaba toegeken is. Die eindtelling was 42-30, wat aan Letaba se eerste span die kroon in Limpopo se Presidentsliga besorg het. Hul driedrukkers was Jean-Pierre Kardos, Renier Kruger, Damien Jansen van Rensburg, Giepie Labuschagné en Deano Kruger. Die tweede span kon nie die mas teen Pietersburg opkom nie en het met 22-19 verloor. Die derde span het ook ’n naelskraapwedstryd gehad, maar het met 12-10 geseëvier. Hulle is ook as die wenners van die Presidentsliga gekroon. Die Seniorliga skop op 2 Junie af.

drafstap begin en vroeg die telbord aan die rol gekry, toe hul kaptein, Funani Mabala, gaan druk het. Hy het nie lank op hom laat wag nie en later in die eerste helfte weer so gemaak. Mabala se kapteinsbeurt het egter nie beteken dat hy die speler van die wedstryd was nie. Solly Mukhutu het op slot uitgedraf, maar soos ‘n besete bul gespeel, wat die Fransies die een na die ander uit die pad geboender het. Hy is met ’n pragdrie vir sy kragspel beloon. Jece Swart, wat op skrumskakel diens gedoen het, is stadig besig om die posisie sy eie te maak. Hy het die spel goed gelees en ’n erg gekweste Fransie-span vir oulaas neergetrek, toe hy met ’n tikskoppie van agter die losskrum ’n aanval geloots het. Die bal het verkeerd vir die Fransies gespring en Swart het geduik om die bal in die doelgebied toe te val. Alhoewel die Fransies Saterdag nie antwoorde vir Merensky se kragspel gehad het nie, lê die kommer egter by die Plasies se onvermoëns om die bal deur die pale te skop. Terwyl die telling 31-6 kon wees, vertel die telbord dat die Plasies met 20-6 gewen het. Merensky speel môre in Polokwane teen Tom Naudé in ’n vriendskaplike kragmeting.
