community spending, where the major employment opportunities would be created. The mine plans to supply iron concentrate to the South African steel industry as well as to international steel smelters in China and India. Limenite concentrate, an iron titanium oxide used mainlyfor the production of rutile, a pigment base, and for the production of titanium metal,will be supplied to smelters in KwaZulu-Natal. The project will consist of three open pits of up to 150 meter deep, a concentrator plant, stockpile area, engineering and support infrastructure, roads and rail link and water management facilities. Exploration for the mine, which will be situated on some 3 500 hectares at Mohlaba’s Location, 20 kilometer from Tzaneen, started in 1991 in five phases up until 2008, covering all aspects of mapping, geophysical survey,drilling and the evaluation of potential ore, metallurgical

testing, the compilation of a technical feasibility study and the undertaking of an environmental impact assessment and management programme, the social and labour plan, the integrated water use licence, and various other required applications and reports. A well-known Tzaneen resident, Mr Tony Long, initiated the exploration and he still plays a key role in the planning of the new mine. The spokesman said that the mine will comply with all legal requirements of the Mineral and Petroleum Resource Development Act, the National Environmental Management Act and the National Water Act. “Our concentrator water requirements will be some two-million cu/m per annum, which will be accessed from an 80 kilometer pipeline to be installed from the Olifants River. However, the mine itself will provide an increasing percentage of this water as the open pits increase in depth,” he said.

Major boost for jobs Over 2 500 jobs are estimated to be created during the start-up phase of the Tivani open pit mining project for the production of titanium and iron ore near Tzaneen. Although only 240 workers will be employed by Tivani Mine itself in the initial phase, the headcount will increase progressively as the project moves through the beneficiation processes to the full smelting facility, which will have a significant additional head count. According to a mine spokesman, there would be a considerable additional benefit of support services and local LONG

Protesters block the road between Giyani and Tzaneen

“A rail spur will connect with the existing railway line between Letsitele and Hoedspruit and a section of the line will be upgraded to handle our export requirements via either Richards Bay or Maputo.” A tailings dam would be established nearby, as well as a discard dump.


Today Bulletin introduces a graphic indicator that we will use henceforth with news that will impact positively on the economy of our area and communities

Erratum: In last week’s exclusive more detailed report about the mine, we referred to the mine’s iron ore concentrator with a capacity to process 11 metric tonnes of run-of-mine ore annually, producing 2,5 metric tonnes of concentrate… It should have read million tonnes. We also reported that the potential smelting facility is projected to produce 1,5 metric tonnes… which in fact is 1,5 million tonnes. We gladly publish the correct figures. Exclusive footage

Strikes in action

The community of Ndhambi and Mageva villages near Giyani barricaded the R529 with burning tyres, rocks and other objects in response to the Greater Giyani Municipality’s failure to respond to their demands to attend to the safety of the road. They staged a march to the local police recently, to air their griev-

ances regarding the R529, which is alleged to have claimed the lives of forty people in three years and caused injury to many others. The people demanded speed humps to be built. The flow of traffic between Giyani and Tzaneen was halted for about an hour, until the police arrived and dispersed the crowd

(mostly scholars who had slipped away from school). Municipal workers arrived and started a process for the humps on the road, by marking where it should be built. This calmed the crowd and traffic could flow again. Here members of the SAPS are clearing the road. — Photo & caption: Orlando Chauke

Striking municipal workers in Tzaneen went on the rampage on Wednesday and again yesterday. The Bulletin filmed the disgusting behaviour of workers when they stormed into the GTM’s offices and caused damage to property. See it, exclusively, on our website at

Sê jou sê

Soek Laeveld Bulletin Die nuwe eiland op die R71 voor Sasol, rylopers wat toeneem, geen waarskutekens of tekens wat motoriste verbied om u-draaie daar te maak nie, swaarvoertuie wat parkeer soos hulle wil... wat dink jy van wat by ons dorp se ingang op die R71 aan die gang is? Khell Van Der Lith Dis ’n uiters blabs idee. As ek by Steers my Vrydag-burger gaan koop gaan ek wragtag nie deur Lifestyle Centre terug ry dorp toe nie. Ek sal maar net om die eiland my U-turn maak. Daar is geen tekens wat my verbied om dit te doen nie. En ons almal weet al hoekom daai eiland op is. Die eienaar van die ... garage moet nie vir een oomblik dink dat ek hom gaan ondersteun net omdat hy ’n eiland laat bou het nie. Coenie Scheepers Snr Dis ’n gemors. Gister amper in ’n botsing betrokke gewees omdat die ander bestuurder hom gewip het vir die eiland wat nou in sy pad is as hy wil terug dorp toe. Melanie Jane Bezuidenhout  Groot gemors, hulle het duidelik nie gedink toe hulle dit opgesit het nie. Monica Swanepoel Een groot gemors. Frikkie Friksters Schoeman Ek het gerugte gehoor dat die eiland nie eers die nodige permitte het om daar te wees nie, maar soos ek sê, dit is net gerugte. Ek wonder wie betaal daarvoor, ons of die sentrum? Vicky Van Deventer Smith  Ek hou Vrydag ’n motor dop terwyl ek vir iemand wag, my bek het oopgehang! Die ou ry aan die aankomende verkeer se kant weer terug dorp toe! Waar in jou lewe het mens dit gesien? Daar kom karre aan, maar hulle moet om die ou ry! Louise Van Blommestein  Dit maak mens deurmekaar, ek’t nou die dag daar gery, wou gou vinnig by Sasol stop. Ek moes al die pad by die Lifestyle Sentrum om ry om weer terug dorp toe te gaan. Dit is een groot gemorsspul, ek was bekommerd oor my en my kinders se veiligheid in die kar, want een kar het reguit na my toe aangery in my baan. Dit was seker sy kortpad terug dorp toe of dalk het hy ook nie geweet wat aangaan nie. Ek wil nou nie eers meer Sasol toe gaan nie en vermy daai stuk heeltemal. Craig John Woodward  Besides the “strange” decision to erect this ridiculous island, has anyone bothered to think of the implications should a truck hit this island in front of a petrol station? Rodney Sabatier Die eiland is duidelik daar gesit om kliënte na die nuwe garage te dwing. Dit dra by tot onveilige omstandighede op ons pad. The island should be rebuilt to give safe entrance and exit to Sasol so that it becomes an asset. Chris Pretorius As ek n ongeluk maak by (daardie) middel man waar daar geen tekens is nie dan gaan ek darem iemand lekker dagvaar en (daardie) iemand gaan wees die persoon wat (daardie) opdrag gegee het. Want dit gaan mos donners lekker in ons dorp elkeen doen net wat hulle wil. Corrie van Wyk Sommer lus en hou n optog oor die hele ding. Dit is nou regtig stupid verby.

Debbie Beukes Blow up the island and give Sasol fair business! We all know money passed the palm again and may that bring that person no luck whatsoever. I will support Sasol even if I have to circumvent the town. Dirk Joubert Met al die “idiote” wat nie kan bestuur in Tzaneen nie sal dit beslis ‘n gevaar inhou. Die eiland moet herbou word om regverdige en gelyke dienslewering aan die publiek te bied. Hans Schouwstra Ons weet mos hoekom was die eiland nodig. Hoe dit sonder die regte permitte gedoen is, kan mens net oor wonder. En geen tekens, dis ’n moerse ongeluk wat wag om te gebeur. Thea Gerber  Dit is eintlik baie maklik. Kom ons almal in Tzaneen ondersteun net die Sasol en die winkeltjie daar. Probeer net om veilig en lewendig daar uit te kom.

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

Toe Vlieg destyds die groot besluit moes neem of hy bereid sou wees om sy literêre en/of joernalistieke maagdelikheid op te offer om vir hierdie nuuspapiertjie ‘n weeklikse rubriekie te skryf, was hy vir ‘n sekonde of twee baie bekommerd. Oor homself natuurlik. Nie omdat hy bang was dat ‘n leser hom dalk sou bydam oor iets wat hy miskien sou skryf nie, maar omdat hy vir ‘n oomblik simpatie met dominees gehad het. Sien, net soos dominees, het Vlieg ook net een voorbereiding per week om te doen. Vir begrafnisse en troues stof mens natuurlik sommer ‘n ou preek af. Vlieg was maar bekommerd dat die materiaal vir inspirasie ook die een of ander tyd min sou raak. Dink net hoe sukkel die rabbi’s — hulle het maar net een Testament om mee te werk. Anders natuurlik as voormelde dominees se gemeentes wat elke week dieselfde preek net in ander woorde hoor, is Vlieg redelik seker daarvan dat sy lesers sal agterkom as hy dieselfde storie elke week net in ander woorde vertel. Maar soos mense en hul dinge in hierdie ou landjie van ons ontvou, oorweeg Vlieg dit om eerder binnekort vir ‘n dagblad te begin skryf, so vol van inspirasie is hy! Die eerste publikasie waarmee Vlieg te doen gehad het was natuurlik, soos enige ander maaier of papie uit daardie era, die

Bollie. Soos menige ander tydskrifte wat Vlieg daarna onder oë gehad het, was die middelblad van die Bollie vir Vlieg altyd die mooiste. Hoewel die middelblaaie van sommige ander tydskrifte later vir heel ander redes vir hom mooi was. Op die Bollie se middelblad was die Swape. Vlieg kon ure na die prentjies sit en kyk hoe elkeen van die Swape homself met die een of ander lagwekkende sotlikheid besig hou. Gewoonlik het almal van hulle min of meer dieselfde taak gehad om min of meer by dieselfde doel uit te kom. Maar elkeen het homself in die een of ander sotlike oomblik misgis met waarmee hy eintlik besig was, en op stuk van sake net ‘n totale gemors daarvan gemaak. En natuurlik nooit by die einddoel uitgekom nie. Dikwels was dit ook ten koste van een of meer ander Swape wat naasliggend besig was met hul eie sotlikhede. Dikwels het die Swape met mekaar baklei oor een of ander belangrike stuk gereedskap. Dikwels het hulle sommer net baklei. Meestal was hul middele om hul doel te bereik so absurd dat Vlieg en ander Bollielesers maar net daaroor kon lag. As Vlieg nou daaraan terugdink wil hy homself amper weer ‘n papie lag! Nou wonder Vlieg, as daar nou nog Swape was, en argumentsonthalwe nie meer ‘n Bollie nie, maar hulle wel op ‘n ander, nuwe, moderne tydskrif se middelblad kon verskyn, of ‘n sekere groep van die Swape hulle sou beywer het om weer ‘n Bollie te hê. Hierdie groep wat so aan die verlede sou vashou en oënskynlik verknog sou wees aan Bollie, sou hulself dalk dan die steedsSwape kon noem.

DA kry nuwe leier IN


Die DA in Limpopo het ‘n nuwe leierspan. Mnr Jacques Smalle het Saterdag by die party se provinsiale kongres in ‘n kopaan-kopstryd met sewe stemme teen die dienende leier, me Desiree van der Walt, gewen om die toppos in Limpopo te beklee. Maar die 253 stemgeregtigdes moes twee keer stem om

‘n leier te kies. Die party se reëls bepaal dat die leier met ‘n meerderheid van 50% plus een stem verkies moet word. In die eerste ronde het Van der Walt 108 stemme op haar getrek, Smalle 97 en me Maisie Kennedy 45. Omdat Van der Walt nie ‘n volstrekte meerderheid gehad het nie, moes daar weer tussen haar en Smalle gestem word. Kennedy se ondersteuners het hulle toe duidelik agter Smalle geskaar en hy het 122 stemme gekry, Van der Walt 115 en daar was agt bedorwe stembriewe. Verskeie stemgeregtigdes het glo ook teen daardie tyd al vertrek en nie gestem nie. Smalle se ondersteuners sê hy sal ‘n goeie leier wees, aangesien hy deur die party se geledere gegroei het. — eers as tesourier en later ook as voorsitter en dat hy ‘n sterk spanwerker is. Van der Walt se ondersteuners sê weer van haar dat sy ‘n baie harde werker is en nie huiwer om die party se belange voorop te stel nie. Die DA het onder haar leiding besluit dat die leier van die provinsie in die provinsiale wetgewer moet dien en nie in die nasionale parlement nie. Sy het egter destyds ‘n ooreenkoms met



die party se federale raad gesluit om as sy, om welke rede ook, nie meer die leier in Limpopo is nie, te kan kies of sy parlement toe wil gaan of in die wetgewer wil dien. Sy het gisteroggend aan ons bevestig dat sy besluit het om in Limpopo te bly en voort te gaan om in die wetgewer te dien. “Ek wil ter wille van die gemeenskap in Limpopo bly en voortgaan met my pligte in die wetgewer.” Smalle het gisteroggend van Blouberg, waar hy vir die tussenverkiesing gewerk het, gesê hy gaan eers al die opsies oorweeg en met die nasionale leierskap bespreek, alvorens hy besluit of hy in die parlement gaan sit of in die wetgewer. “Ek stem saam met die beginsel dat ‘n provinsiale leier in sy provinsie moet wees, maar daar is tans drie moontlikhede wat eers deeglik oorweeg moet word. “As ek hier sou bly en saam met Desiree in die wetgewer dien, sal ons natuurlik ‘n formidabele span wees, maar in hierdie stadium is dit maar net een van die moontlikhede. Ons sal eers vroeg in Julie ‘n finale besluit neem,” het hy gesê. Francois Aucamp

Die nuwe en die oue: Smalle en Van der Walt Saterdag in diep gesprek

Die slange loop nog... ‘n Reuse-mamba van 2,55 meter is op ‘n Constantiaplaas van CP Minnaar en Seun van kant gemaak. Die reptiel was onderweg van die werkswinkel en het verby een van die woonhuise geseil, toe twee werkers hom teëgekom het. Hier is mnre Andrew Rikhotso en Solly Masekane met die slang. Ongeveer twintig brande het die afgelope naweek in die Tzaneenomgewing gewoed. Die eerste oranje brandgevaarindeksdag van die seisoen was Vrydag. Die brandgevaarindeks word daagliks bepaal (temperatuur, humiditeit en wind) en word in kleurkodes gegee: groen en blou: buite gevaar; geel, oranje en rooi: ‘n hoë brandgevaar. Winde van tot meer as 50 km/h is Vrydag gemeet, weens ‘n koue front wat inbeweeg het. Die grootste brand was by die Sapekoe-teeplantasie waar die Working On Fire-helikopter agtien sakke water op die vuur gestort het. Slegs drie hektaar afgebrande plantasie is aangemeld. Grondeienaars word versoek om nie net alle brande aan die LFPA te rapporteer nie, maar ook die afgebrande hektare vir statistiese doeleindes.

They think they are better comrades.” Mr Dan Sebabi, Cosatu’s provincial secretary, said the GTM is the only municipality in the country where corruption is so rife. “Politicians share tenders under trees and people without matric become directors,” he said.

Police reward young village hero Mr Sipho Sebela (28) from Burgersdorp near Lenyenye has become an almost instant hero. On Monday he saw a police vehicle collide with a VW Golf. The police vehicle had two prisoners who were to appear in court. Sebela ran to the scene to save the people who were involved in the accident. He found the two police men injured and helped them out of the vehicle. The two prisoners were still locked up in the police vehicle and he unlocked the vehicle. He realized that the prisoners were not hand-cuffed and he hand-cuffed them and took the gun that was lying on the floor. “I just wanted to save the people as I thought that the car was going to burn,” he said. The two prisoners were later taken to the Letaba Hospital and were treat-

ed for minor injuries and taken back to the Hoedspruit prison. The two policemen are still in Mediclinic Tzaneen. The Police rewarded Sebela with a R4 000 cheque as a token of appreciation. Sebela said that the money will help him feed his family, as his mother is not working and they are a big family. Major General Maggie Mathebula applaud Sebela for being brave and saving the men. She added that this is a sign that the police are not alone in fighting crime. Seen in the photo above are Col Schalk van Schalkwyk(Maake Police commander), Maj Genl Mathebula, Mr Sipho Sebela and Mr Marothi Letsoalo (CPF Chairperson), at the handing over of the cheque to Sebela.

The suspects are 18 and 20 years old respectively, and are both from Marironi. According to Tzaneen Police spokesman, Lt Col Simon Shikwambana, it is alleged that the 28 yea- old David Tshesane was on his way back from a local tavern.

Mopani District Municipality (MDM) mayor Joshua Matlou handed over uniforms to 168 pupils at Mavalani High School near Giyani. Each of the 168 learners received shoes and socks, trousers or skirts, shirts, ties, and pullovers for winter. This was part of the district’s celebration to mark and remember the June 16 Youth Day, and partly to encourage the school to do more after it managed to improve its matric results from 30% to 74,3% last year. The school made the news last year in January when it was discovered that more than 25 pupils were pregnant. “You may have been the laughing stock of the country after last year’s incident, but you managed to turn things around. To me, that is commendable and I hope you will not just remain there, but will improve even more this year,” he said. The chairman of the school’s governing body, Mr Moses Zitha, expressed gratitude for the donation, saying it would improve morality with the pupils who previously did not have uniforms. Matlou is seen here handing out clothes to Sipho Ngwenya. — Photo & caption: Orlando Chauke

Mediclinic Tzaneen help the disabled The Mediclinic Tzaneen adopts a school each year and funds the school according to their needs. This year the pupils of the Letaba School for the Disabled in Nkowankowa were treated with a meal from the Mediclinic team. The team donated 190 blankets, nappies, food parcels, medical supplies and a home cooked meal for the pupils. The school is currently struggling with funds. The school has 203 pupils and all of them stay in the school’s hostels. Acting headmaster Ms Joey Truter explained that they are in need of food, wheelchairs, blankets and walking aids for the children. She added that they are thankful for what Mediclinic

Tzaneen has provided and they hope more organizations will also come forward to help them. The 203 pupils showed their appreciation by singing a “Thank You” song for the Mediclinic team. The team helped in dishing up the meal they prepared, amongst them hospital manager Mr Zane Fanie. “The aim of this project is to assist schools and putting a smile on children’s faces,” he said. Fanie said they will follow up with renovating the Jungle gym at the school. They also visited the school’s hostel to identify the things that need attention. Martina Jege

The mine and jobs

The news of a new mine at Nkowankowa couldn’t have come at a better time. The world economy is not healthy at all, South Africa’s economy has slowed down considerably, Limpopo’s economy is growing at snail’s pace and Tzaneen’s economy is currently on crutches. We need a healthy injection, and a boost to employment in our part of the world will most certainly help a lot to improve the current bleak situation. New jobs for 2 500 people will help to lift the depressed atmosphere to a new level that would stimulate economic activity. We have news of further mining activity to be expected in our area. The important thing now is for the role players in the community to be sensible about the new developments. We shouldn’t fight about resources, such as water. For the region and the province to be put on a new road to prosperity we need to take hands, talk to each other, accommodate our common interests and avoid being selfish and/or negative.

The striking workers

Workers have a right to strike, to march and to toyi-toyi. And so it should be. However, if protesting workers can’t behave and destroy property, they should be punished without any mercy shown. The GTM’s workers on Wednesday and yesterday didn’t damage the GTM’s property (or their employer’s property), they damaged the community’s property. It is public property. Punish them and stop this nonsense of people destroying property when they demonstrate their grievances.

Fresh leadership

Luke Perkins (DA Councillor), Haenertsburg, writes: Those who still think of the DA as a “white party” should have been at the Limpopo Congress this past Saturday. The delegates reflected in large measure the demographics of the Province. The provincial leadership was contested; how refreshing to see a close election fought on the basis of merit, not colour, language, culture, gender or political favours, and without acrimony. Helen Zille and Lindiwe Mazibuko exemplified the leadership this nation needs and deserves. Dignified and articulate, untainted by scandal, Mazibuko and Zille addressed Congress on the road to 2014 and the need for Limpopo to extricate itself from its current financial crisis.

The English language, long extinct in Limpopo and known only from the fossil record, was brought to life by Lindiwe who had the crowd on their feet with her eloquence and magnetic presence. Congress was inspired by her detailed analysis of facts and figures from education and health care, where government policies have had disastrous results, while those implemented by the DA are showing success. With fresh Provincial leadership (Jacques Smalle, Mpowele Swathe, Lindy Wilson and Naomi Phosa), and a strong national leadership, the DA is approaching 2014 with growing numbers, energy and confidence.


Roy Hurter van Tzaneen skryf per e-pos: My oorle pa het ons nie met geld agter gelaat nie, maar met lewenswyshede. Baie meer onskatbaar as dit wat deur mot en roes verniel word. Een van die wyshede was; “ as jy verkeerd is, erken dit, sê ekskuus, vat jou pak soos ‘n man, stel dit reg en moenie dit weer doen nie”. Ja, dis mooi wat die DA by monde van Hendrika Kruger (Google) gedoen het, maar ek het nog niks gesien dat hulle “ekskuus” sê oor hulle die aangeleentheid aanvanklik verkeerd hanteer het nie. Hoe klink: “Die DA steun die besluit (om die ouetehuis te sluit) maar sal alles in ons vermoë doen om die saak “tot

When we pray, how do we prepare ourselves? Do we just rush into it or do we first think about it? I often wonder myself, what I am going to pray about. Now it may a lot easier if I knew I was praying for a specific person or something that was concerning me. When do I offer thanks to God, or do I just rush through a standard form of prayer? Prayers I learnt as a child often seem so simple, yet at the time they were a very effective way of training or teaching me the importance of prayer. Jesus often prayed for others, as we can read in the scriptures, but He also prayed for Himself. This was a way of communicating with His and our Heavenly Father. Thus we know that God is listening, but it is also said that He knows our every need, so why should we pray. In our daily lives we communicate with others, share our concerns, sometimes ask them a favour of two. We are too concerned as to the correctness of our communication; is it in the right format? This is how we too should communicate with God. We need to tell Him how we feel our day is going, thank Him for His many blessings, just as we would thank someone for what they did for us. God is so special in our lives and wants to be involved in them at every moment, yet we often close Him out. He could force us to do His will but He never will, that is why He gave us a free will. We must remember that we always receive something back from God, somehow we are fulfilled. Often we just feel relieved. So let us all pray more often, it does not matter to God when we pray, there is no specific times set down, it is all about communication with our Heavenly Father. When Jesus died on the cross for us He gave us the right to speak directly to His Father, so let us use this right. Blessings

Cllr. René Pohl, Box 482, Duiwelskloof, writes: It would be highly appreciated if you could publish the following information. DA Caucus Leader Rene Pohl writes: Council meetings took place on 30 May 2012. The Mayor stated that Council have noted recent setbacks such as the appointment of the Municipal Manager, which has been reversed to ensure that Council complies with the relevant laws and regulations. The contracts of directors have also been advertised and will be filled as soon as possible. The court cases regarding Claude Wheatly Street and Sasekani-Muhlava road is not finalised yet. The total revenue for the 2012/2013 financial year amounts to R 833m. Property rates will increase with 5,8%, electricity with 11,03%, water , sanitation and solid waste each with 5,5%. The DA is impressed with the 17,1% of the total budget for repairs and maintenance if viewed against the budgets of other municipalities, although the ideal is 25%. All tariff increases are within the guidelines

set by National Treasury. The DA approved the 2012/2013 budget on the condition that every project be linked to a specific amount in the budget, and that the water purification system capacity increase in Ward 15 be included in the next financial year. The DA submitted a motion relating late notice of meetings which undermines good governance. Five sets of questions to be answered in writing were also submitted. It concerns the T-Mart Shop in Haenertsburg which is partly built on land not belonging to the business but to the SAPS, the Supply Chain Management, Talana Hostel, overtime payments, electricity as well as water and electricity tariffs for indigents, and lastly why the IDP projects prioritization wasn’t done on time. We referred the answers on the last issue back to Council because we were not satisfied with the answer. Yhe answer we received was in contradiction to the Waste Management Department’s report and, not signed by any official. The DA believes in an independent political opposition which will hold the ruling party accountable at all times. I can be contacted at 079 8725 012. A Ward 15 Community meeting will also take place in June.

Boere se veiligheid Kobus Visser van AgriSA skryf: Die ANC jeugliga het tydens sy beleidskonferensie die volgende uitspraak gemaak: “If white South Africans did not hand land over to poor blacks, there could be land invasions like those that took place in Zimbabwe, the league warned.” In hul amptelike verklaring se die liga “The ANC must unequivocally proclaim the need to expriopriate land without compensation ...”

Tydens AgriSA se Landelike Beveiligingskomiteevergaderings is onwettige grondbesettings breedvoerig bespreek en op die volgende prosedures ooreengekom, vir optrede as dit sou voorkom : • AgriSA het ‘n omvattende inligtingsdokument opgestel waarin riglyne vervat is oor hoe boere op plaaslike vlak onwettige grondbesettings behoort te hanteer, asook wat die SAPD se verantwoorde-

likheid is om sulke gevalle te hanteer. Die dokument is reeds by vorige geleenthede aan affiliasies gestuur. • Provinsiale organisasies van AgriSA moet op provinsiale vlak met die polisie skakel om prosedurereëlings rakende die polisie se verantwoordelikheid in die hantering van onwettige grondbesettings uit te klaar. • Op plaaslike vlak moet boereverenigings ook met hul onderskeie stasiebevelvoerders skakel om prosedurereëlings rakende die polisie se verantwoordelikheid in die hantering van onwettige grondbesettings op plaaslike vlak uit te klaar. • Volgens AgriSA se inligtingstuk moet onwettige grondbesettings onmiddelik deur die grondeienaar by die naaste polisiestasie aangemeld word en die polisie moet op die klagte reageer en dit ondersoek. Volgens ons ooreengekome reëling moet die grondeienaar, as die polisie nie op die klagte reageer nie, dit by sy betrokke provinsiale organisasie aanmeld, wat daarna met die landelike beveiligingskoördineerder in die betrokke provinsie sal skakel om die situasie vanaf provinsiale vlak te hanteer. As die plaaslike polisie nie oor die kapasiteit beskik om die situasie te hanteer nie, is daar volgens die brief van Genl Mothiba van 3 Februarie 2012, “public order policing” kapasiteit op provinsiale vlak beskikbaar om met so ‘n situasie te handel. Die kontakbesonderhede van die onderskeie landelike beveiligingskoördineerders is voorsien. AgriSA het op nasionale vlak die polisie versoek om die nodige takings aan die polisie-intelligensie uit te reik om vroegtydig gevalle van onwettige grondbesettings te monitor en met gepaste stappe daarop te reageer. AgriSA het die polisie ook versoek om die erns van die uitsprake binne die strukture van die SAPD te hanteer, asook om dit onder die aandag van die provinsies en provinsiale landelike beveiligingskoördineerders te bring. Ons vertrou dat die inligtingsdokument oor die hantering van onwettige grondbesettings reeds by u onderskeie boereverenigings beskikbaar is en dat boereverenigings vertroud is met die inligting daarvan en ook wat hulle verantwoordelikheid is om so situasie te hanteer. As u verdere inligting benodig, is u welkom om ons daaroor te skakel.

We weren’t rescued by the ANC only

Councillor suspended

— says chief

Many South Africans are too loyal to the ruling party, because they believe it is the only party that rescued them from slavery. So said Mr Famanda Chavalala, the chief of Siyandhani village near Giyani. He commented on the ruling party’s inability to resolve the issue of headmen’s salaries, at a meeting between headmen from Mopani and Vhembe and APC president Themba Godi. The meeting was aimed at discussing a way forward, after Limpopo’s government allegedly failed to increase headmen’s salaries by 15 April from R13 000 per annum to R71 000, as was promised. “In the ANC, if you don’t do things like taking to the streets, they won’t hear you,” he said. He added that “the ANC is lucky that in Africa in general, we don’t have enough knowledge in the matters of politics. “If you look at countries such as England, Britain and Ameri-ca, where people are well informed about politics… if for instance, Obama would underperform in one

term, he won’t be back for the next term, because they know politics. “But here, just because we were told that the ANC is the party that rescued us from slavery, we concentrate on that only, forgetting that the ANC was not alone in the fight for freedom,” he said. Chavalala urged other headmen to “start teaching kids and everybody else that the ANC did not single-handedly rescue blacks from slavery” and that “there were parties and individuals who took part in the freedom fight.

Fisherman drowns A 34 year-old man from Rwanda village in Nwamitwa was found dead in Deneyschen Farm’s dam on Saturday. According to Letsitele Police spokesman Const Ntsako Mabunda, it is alleged that the man, a citizen of Mozambique, was last seen on Monday while fishing at the farm dam. He was allegedly using a net to fish. According to an eyewitness the man’s clothes and cell phone were on the dam wall and it was assumed that the man was around. On Saturday his body was discovered floating in the dam. Mabunda urged people to be careful when fishing and also warned fishermen using nets without valid license that they were fishing unlawfully.

The ANC has suspended the Greater Giyani Municipality’s Ward 5 councillor Erick Nkovani, the musician well-known as Penny-Penny. He surprised many people last year, when he contested for ward councillorship and won by a big margin. The suspension came after an alleged series of disagreement between him and the ANC. Penny-Penny confirmed the suspension, but said he is still to receive charges with regard to his suspension. “They said they would give me charges within seven days… but I am still waiting after much more than seven,” Penny-Penny told the Bulletin, adding that he is still a ward councillor, and that he was only suspended from the ANC. “I was surprised to receive a suspension letter… maybe they made a mistake and it wasn’t meant for me. My only guilt could be my hard fight for service delivery,” he said. The ANC’s regional secretary in Mopani, Mr Bricks Manzini, said Penny-Penny was suspended for “bringing the ANC into disrepute”’ He would, however, not say anything m o r e , “since the

Search “Laeveldbulletin” matter was sub judice”. It is widely believed that some of the charges that led to Penny-Penny’s suspension could have stemmed from his recent “outburst” at a forum where the GGM’s IDP and draft budget were discussed with a view of finalising it. In response to the GGM’s IDP Coordinator, Mr Louis Mabunda, who told the community that the 2012/2013 budget had no room for major projects due to the fact the province was still under administration, Penny-Penny stood up and said “don’t lie to us”. “I’m a ward councillor… let us not lie to each other. We, the residents of Giyani never ate the roads funds, they shouldn’t bluff us. To tell the truth, this municipality is being driven by certain people behind the scenes,” he had said. He was applauded enthusiastically by the majority of the people in attendance, when he went on to say “you’re the ones who elected us into positions, yet we lie to you because the municipality is being driven by some people from elsewhere. We’re being undermined as ward councillors. They make us their bandits who come and lie to you on their behalf… everything they told you is nonsense,” he had said as he walked out of the meeting.

3 Arrested for cable theft Three men were arrested for being in possession of stolen cables and transformers last week, early Wednesday morning at Mabete farm next to ATKV Eiland SAPA. According to Letsitele police spokesperson, Const Mabunda, the Letsitele police were alerted that a bakkie with four men in possession of cables will pass by Mabete farm. The police acted swiftly on information received and when they arrived at the farm, they hid in bushes and arranged for backup, meanwhile when the bakkie was about to approach the farm, the police stopped the bakkie to search them but im-

mediately when they stopped four men fled the scene. The police managed to arrested three men and in the bakkie there was stolen cables and transformers worth of R550 000. He added that the police have been looking for the three suspects and the suspects even confirmed that they are the one who have been terrorising Letsitele. A 30 year old Reckson Maluleke, Lucas Mosia also 30 years old and 28 year old Justice Kapa, will appear in Tzaneen Magistrate court on the 07 of June. Martina Jege

People with disabilities continue to be seen as obstacles by their own communities, and as a burden to their families and friends. So said Ms Sevengwane Nkuna, the chairperson of the health and social development cluster of the Greater Tzaneen Municipality. Nkuna was addressing delegates at the Disability in Tzaneen. She said challenges facing people with disabilities persist despite government efforts. “Although government has put legislation, policy and programmes to champion the right of people living with disability, there are still obstacles.“ She added that the majority of people with disabilities could live independent and productive lives. “However, this can only happen if disabled people have access to resources, accessible environments and information. Assisting disabled people should not be seen as a privilege.

“Let it be known and understood that facilitating access to opportunities for people with disabilities and promoting their rights, is not an act of charity nor a humanitarian gesture. It is a constitutional responsibility and economic imperative,” she said. The event was attended by different disability formations. Delegates also elected the disability council to act as an umbrella body. The council will interact with government institutions to ensure that the needs of disabled people are not overlooked. Mr Jonas Mathebula was elected unopposed as the chairperson of the council. Mr Headman Mkharhi, the youth, gender and disability officer in the office of the GTM’s mayor, urged

Volunteers challenge cleaning company A cleaning company responsible for the cleaning services to the Mediclinic Tzaneen, has been promising people work if they volunteer for four days. It is alleged that Tshebo Cleaning Company manager Ms Mmathapelo Makoro hired four cleaners and told them that if they volunteer for four days, they will be hired permanently.

Within six months of going into production at their new goat’s milk factory in Louis Trichardt (Makhado), Limpopo Dairy was crowned the best goat’s milk feta cheese producer in South Africa during the South African Dairy Championships. Proudly displaying their award are in front, Ms Sannetjie Tshiawelo (factory operator), Mr Len O’Linsky (factory manager), Ms Helma Mudzanani (factory assistant) and Mr Owen Machaba (cheese maker’s assistant).

Disability indaba


According to one of the volunteers, she volunteered for four days in April and thereafter she kept on working for about five weeks. The volunteer then went to Ms Makoro to inform her that she will not be able to report for duty, because she does not have money to buy a bus icket. She added that Ms Makoro also told them that after four days of volunteering some of the cleaners will be transferred to Phalaborwa Mediclinic. However, Ms Makoro told the Bulletin that the volunteers

came to her office looking for a job and she told them that the company does not have money to pay them. The volunteers then told her that they just wanted extra training. “We only allow people to volunteer for four days, and we never promised any of the volunteers that they will get a job.” Tshebo has been rendering a service to the Mediclinic Tzaneen over the past three years and their contract will be extended in July. The Mediclinic Tzaneen’s hospital manager, Mr Zane Fanie, explained that the company has been providing a great service to the hopsital. He added that Ms Makoro conveyed to the volunteers the situation about working for four days very clearly. Unfortunately it was a verbal agreement and Fanie urged Tshebo to a have written agreement to avoid such situations. Martina Jege

Letaba School for the handicapped is in crisis The Letaba School for the Disabled in Nkowankowa is facing a food crisis. The school will be serving the last meals for the chiuldren tonight, unless something miraculous happens. The chairman of the school’s governing body, Mr Raymond Mabuza, explained that they are still waiting for the government subsidy and the delay is caused by the fact that some of Limpopo’s departments are still under administration. He said that the government promised to do

a payment before the end of this week. “It is only our school that is waiting for funds, but at the moment there is no crisis,” Mabuza said. Mr John Eastes, the school’s headmaster, had no comment. Mr Ike Thema of the Limpopo Premier’s office, did not answer his phone and did not come back to us after we had left three messages for him to call us. Martina Jege

Heli-geheim dalk graf toe Sal die oorsaak van die helikopter-ongeluk buite Polokwane, drie weke gelede, wat die lewens van twee mans van Tzaneen geëis het, ooit bo alle twyfel vasgestel kan word? Dit is nou die vraag, nadat mnr Riaan van Brakel (40) Maandag ook sy stryd teen erge kop- en breinbeserings verloor het. Daar word nou bespiegel dat die werklike oorsaak van die ongeluk ‘n geheim is wat saam met hom graf toe is. Mnr Robert Drewes (26) is op die toneel dood, maar Van Brakel het die ongeluk aanvanklik oorleef. Hy is Maandagoggend vroeg dood, in die Mediclinic Limpopo in Polokwane, waar hy die afgelope sowat drie weke bewusteloos gelê het en verskeie operasies op hom uitgevoer is.

Hy was mede-eienaar van die Robinson 44-helikopter waarin hulle gevlieg het. Van Brakel laat sy vrou Renet en twee kinders, Raché (12) en Adriaan (10) agter. ‘n Roudiens vir hom is vanoggend om 11:00 in die Shekinah House-kerk in Tzaneen gehou. Van Brakel was die eienaar van die Avuxeni Computer Academy in Tzaneen. Die ongeluk word deur die Burgerlugvaartowerheid ondersoek, maar daar word nou gevrees dat presies wat verkeerd gegaan het, nooit bepaal sal kan word nie. Daar was hoop dat Van Brakel, as hy sou herstel het, lig op die ongeluk sou kon werp. Daar was kort na die ongeluk sprake van erge rukwinde in die omgewing waar die helikopter geval het.

Allesbeste en Merensky het kroon in hul visier

BO is die eerste meisiehokkiespan en ONDER die eerste seunspan, geborg deur Allesbeste.

Die eerste hokkiespanne van die Hoërskool Merensky het sover ’n baie suksesvolle seisoen agter die rug. En die groot dryfveer agter hulle is Allesbeste! Dié bekende varsproduktehandelaar, net buite Tzaneen op die Magoebaskloofpad, het hul gewig agter albei die eerste spanne ingegooi en as’t ware die vrugte daarvan gepluk. Vier van die vyf seunspanne en al vyf meisiespanne is deur na môre se halfeindronde in Limpopo se skolekampioenskappe. Boonop het die seuns se o.15’s, o.16’s en eerste span bo aan die punteleer geëindig, terwyl die meisies se o.14’s en o.15’s bo geëin-

dig het. Hul o.16’s, tweede- en eerste spanne het tweede geëindig. Terwyl die seuns sake by PHS in Polokwane gaan uitspook, gaan die meisies in Naboomspruit vir ’n plek in die eindstryd speel. Die eerste seunspan het vier van hul vyf ligawedstryde gewen en die eerste meisiepan een van hul vier kragmetings. Die meisies het egter slegs een van hul vier wedstryde in vanjaar se Pukreeks verloor en op hul Tukstoer ook slegs een van hul vyf wedstryde. Die Allesbeste Merensky-hokkiespelers is gereed vir môre se halfeindstryde en is die gunsteling om vanjaar die titel te wen.

Plasie archers win medals The Limpopo Indoor Archery Championships were held on Sunday and 25 archers from Merensky High School’s archery club took part. Schalk Warmenhoven, Marla Barnard, Kyle Smith and Ricus Warmenhoven won gold medals, while Vernon Green, Cheney Kleinhans, JJ de Wet, Rikus Harmse en Ockert le Roux won silver medals. Magdalena Kleinhans en Janco Theron won bronze medals.

Unicorn holds another Tag Rugby Day On Youth Day tomorrow Unicorn Preparatory School will hold its second annual TAG Rugby® Day. TAG Rugby® is aimed at children in the foundation phase, but the festival will see children of all grades taking part, says Ms Ally Loughor-Clarke, chairperson of Unicorn Association Tag Rugby®. The day gives parents a wonderful opportunity to spend time with their kids as they learn new skills and have fun playing games and challenging each other on the exciting inflatable gladia-

tor course. The children will also have the opportunity to meet Springbok mascot, Bokkie, who is expected to make an appearance. A number of fantastic sponsors have also come on board to provide goodies and prizes for participants. Sponsors include Clemen Gold, BF Distributors, Spar, MartinDale Nursery, HK Houers, Peppadew, Rodney Cooper Estates and Premjee. Tag Rugby® was launched last year by the Unicorn Association as part of a parents initiative to encourage sporting skills, confidence on the field and an understanding of teamwork. “TAG Rugby® is a safe, fun and exciting form of non-contact rugby. It is played without scrums or line-outs and is an ideal game for both boys and girls,” says Lougher-Clarke. Each team will include five players, with a minimum of one girl per team.The sport is endorsed by the SA Rugby Union as a grassroots development tool. The Festival will kick off at 08:30 and food and drinks will be on sale. For more information, contact Loughor-Clarke on 082 805 4407.

The importance of resistance training Resistance training is an area of fitness which sadly gets neglected due to age, gender and ability. The truth is that along with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, resistance training is your general between the troops against illness and fat-weight gain. A common myth of resistance training is that women will “bulk up” when performing resistance training. This is false, as it has been proven that the average woman could only benefit from it. On average women who don’t do strength training could lose 0,23 kg of muscle per year which impacts metabolism severely. Example: Susan is 30 years old and weighs 54 kg with a body-fat percentage of 20%, which means she has 11 kg of fat weight and 44 kg lean weight. If Susan would weigh the same at 50, but didn’t do resistance training, she would’ve lost 4,5 kg of muscle and gained 4,5

kg in fat weight (if same diet and lifestyle was followed). The increase in body fat would also impact her appearance, fitness and health. Fortunately a basic resistance exercise program can reverse the situation with proven stu-dies that several weeks of resistance training could result in an increase of 1,4 kg in muscle and a loss of 1,8 kg in fat weight. Contact Titanium Fitness: 079 892 6513 or titaniumfit@gmail. com. Next week: Responses to Resistance training

Merensky is also proud of Marietjie Harmse, Schalk Warmenhoven, SJ van der Walt, Ricus Warmenhoven en Rikus Harmse, who won their Limpopo colours.

Vossies wen vierde jaar! Die Hoërskool Ben Vorster is Saterdag by die Limpopo Skolenetbalkampioenskappe vir die vierde agtereenvolgende jaar as kampioen gekroon. Ses van die Vossies se nege spanne is as Limpopo-wenners gekroon. Terwyl die o.16A’s nie die eindrondes gehaal het nie, het die o.14A’s en o.17A’s hul kragmetings om die derde plekke teen Ellisras gewen. Die o.15A’s het in die halfeindronde Frikkie Meyer met 12-3 geklop en PHS in die eindstryd met 15-7 geklop. Die o.16B’s, o.17B’s en o.18B’s het ook as wenners in die eindronde uit die stryd getree. Die eerste span het al hul groepwedstryde gewen en in die kwarteindronde met PHS met 12-7 afgereken. Hulle het in die halfeinstryd Tom Naudé met 15-4 verslaan en in die eindstryd Nylstroom met 30-25 geklop. Die Vossies gaan van 3 tot 5 Augustus aan die Noordvaalkampioenskappe deelneem, waar hulle teen die room van Mpumalanga, Gauteng en Noordwes te staan sal kom.

Ben Vorster se eerste span na hulle Saterdag as Limpopo se kampioene gekroon is.

Ongeloof, skok toe Dorp onttrek Jean Aucamp

Met die afskop van die Boet Fick Superrugbyliga Vrydag in Limpopo het skokgolwe deur die provinsie getrek, toe Pietersburg Rugbyklub vir hul kragmeting teen Letaba onttrek het. Letaba het reeds sy stem vanjaar dik gemaak, toe hulle die Presidentsliga — tussen hulle, Pietersburg en Noordelikes — ingepalm het. Dit is deur die subunietoernooi gevolg, waartydens die room van Limpopo se spelers vir die Limpopo Blou Bulle geïdentifiseer is. Mnr Dippies de Beer, die hoofafrigter van Letaba en oud-adjunkpresident van die Limpopo Blou Bulle, sê hy is uit die veld geslaan, toe hulle verlede Donderdagaand die oproep van Pietersburg ontvang het. Pietersburg, die oudste klub in Limpopo, sou Saterdag met drie spanne Tzaneen toe kom om Letaba aan te durf. Na wat verneem word, was slegs sewe van Pietersburg se eerste span Donderdagaand by hul oefening en het hulle besluit om van die eerste ronde-kragmeting te onttrek. Volgens De Beer is dit teleurstellend en kommerwekkend, en dat dit glad nie goed is vir Limpopo-rugby nie. Hy sê dat hy in sy 42 jaar se betrokkenheid by Letaba nooit gedink het dat soiets sal gebeur nie. Dit dui daarop dat rugby in die provinsie ’n stadige dood sterf. Mnr Johan Venter, die voorsitter van die Limpopo Blou Bulle Skeidsregtersvereniging en sedert 1984 by rugby in die provinsie betrokke, sê klubs was “nog bietjiedag” sterk en tot vier honderd wedstryde is in ’n seisoen deur die skeidsregters beheer. Hy wonder of dit vanjaar veel meer as honderd klubwedstryde gaan wees. Hy voer ook

Die naweek se rugby Ben Vorster speel môre by PHS in die halfeindronde van die Limpopoliga vir groot skole, terwyl Merensky in Bela Bela in die halfeindronde vir medium skole speel. Letaba speel môre tuis teen Noordelikes. Die Springbokke speel môre 17:00 teen Engeland.

aan dat dit ’n negatiewe effek op die vereniging sal hê, aangesien skeidsregters minder geleenthede gegun sal word om te blaas, wat hulle sal ontmoedig. Venter sê hy onthou die dae toe klubs soos Phalaborwa, Louis Trichardt, Potgietersrus, Bosveld, Duiwelskloof, Thabazimbi, en Ellisras nog sterk was en tot drie spanne in die veld kon stoot. Vandag sukkel Louis Trichardt om een span te hê en word hul tweede en derde spanne deur spelers van die omgewing opgemaak. Phalaborwa voer ook ‘n sukkelbestaan en Potgietersrus, wat twee jaar gelede ophou bestaan het, probeer weer op die been kom. In die suide is Northam die enigste klub wat nog drie spanne het. Verskeie rolspelers meen dat die afstande wat spanne oor naweke moet reis om aan wedstryde deel te neem, eenvoudig net te veel geword het. Geld speel ’n groot rol, veral as die prys van brandstof in ag geneem word. Buitendien het die finansiële hulp van die Blou Bulle Rugby-unie feitlik weggekwyn en het klubs vanjaar slegs R10 000 elk, die helfte van wat verlede jaar bewillig is, ontvang om hul spelers mee te vergoed, sê De Beer. Nog ’n groot kopseer vir Limpopo is die skoolverlaters wat deur die stadsliggies gelok word. Baie van die jong rugbytalent gaan só verlore en die room word gewoonlik deur die groot unies gekontrakteer. Vanweë die feit dat Limpopo nie soos Verre Noord van ouds op provinsiale vlak meeding nie, voel die jonges dat hier nie werklik ’n toekoms in rugby is nie. Die insluiting van die Limpopo Blou Bulle in aanstaande jaar se Vodacombeker het die wenkbroue laat lig; nie weens opgewondenheid nie, maar weens kommer oor hoe haalbaar dit vir die provinsie sal wees. Intussen is die wedloop om die Boet Fick Superligabeker nog aan die gang en hoop Noordelikes om hul titel suksesvol te verdedig. Met Pietersburg wat vanjaar soos ’n kreupel perd sukkel om uit die stal te kom, lyk dit na ’n tweestryd met Letaba. En met ’n vurige herlewing onder die manne in die groen truie, lyk dit asof die beker dalk Tzaneen toe kan kom.

Uitdaagreeks is môre hier Die volgende ronde van Sanlam se jaarlikse Kanker Uitdaagreeks is môre in Tzaneen. Sedert die ontstaan van die reeks in 1993 is daar reeds meer as R26 miljoen vir die stryd teen kanker ingesamel. Die aksie by die Tzaneen Buiteklub behoort vir opwinding te sorg, aangesien die wenners van die verskillende afdelings kwalifiseer om op 25 Augustus op die Soutpansberg gholfbaan in Louis Trichardt aan die streek-eindrondes deel te neem. Die wenners daarvan word beloon met ‘n uitnodiging na die eindronde, wat vanjaar weer by Sun City is. Twee jaar gelede het dit op die dag gereën en die opkoms was nie so goed nie. Maar mooiweer word vir môre voorspel en ‘n beroep word op die gholfgemeenskap gedoen om die dag te ondersteun. Verlede jaar het 37 000 spelers in 800 verskillende klubkompetisies aan die reeks deelgeneem. Die doelwit vir vanjaar is om R3 miljoen vir kankernavorsing bymekaar te maak.

U.12’s are Unicorn’s pride The u.12A netball team of Unicorn Preparatory School in Tzaneen qualified for the Limpopo Championships that were played in Polokwane on Saturday. The spirited young team made history by being the first Unicorn team to reach the championships. They were runnersup in their pool and played in the quarter final round against Groenskool (Phalaborwa). The team is made up of Sabrina Carreira, Jamela Maswanganyi and Lebo Masemola. At the back are Zenesia Nukeri, Shea Adendorff, Patti Tooley (coach), Munene Nkhwashu and Norman Mnisis.
