Residents express a willingness to vote As we draw closer to the polls, Bulletin took to the streets to see how willing Greater Tzaneen/Mopani is to vote for the national government on Wednesday. In a random approach, we asked residents two questions:

• Are you going to vote on 7 May? • Why? compiled by

Joy Mojela &

Arnold Mabunda

Tlangelani Ngobeni (25) Definitely. I am surely going to make my cross and make it red.

Rachel Nkuna (35) Yes. The government is looking after us and providing for our children with social grants.

Lilly Mongwe (25) Truly, I will vote. I am tired of the ruling party. I need to make my cross and vote for change.

MJ Du Preez (29) Yes. Why not? One has to vote for change. Johannes Rababalale (33) Yep. I’m supposed to. It’s voting season.

Ngwako Malatji (40) Yes. Although it’s had its failures, the government’s achieved a lot of things since democracy. Road maintenance, no fees schools and the school feeding scheme are some of the things we currently enjoy. If we give them another chance, I believe they can do more.

Sarel Dutoit (29) Not at all. I didn’t register. All the parties seem to be saying the same thing. I’d struggle to choose a favourite.

David Poley (44) Yes. I’m hoping for a new government that will serve the people and the country.

Jeanette Nolte (55) Yes. I will vote for my party.


Citrus growers on edge over possible export ban Citrus growers in the Lowveld as well as the rest of South Africa are still holding their breath on the European Union’s attitude towards a possible ban on citrus exports due to the black spot (CBS) issue. They,however, believe in a positive outcome eventually. Last year a ban was placed on SA citrus to the EU due to 35 interventions of black spot, after an earlier ruling that only five interventions would be allowed. News about the EU’s decision on the matter was expected yesterday after a meeting by the European Commission, where a standing committee on plant health was expected to announce a decisive answer. The commission decided to postpone it’s findings because of need for members to spend more time on the issue. However, the Citrus Growers’ Association (CRA), indicated that, together with the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, local growers had over the past year worked tirelessly to prevent citrus black spot in their orchards. Other measures were also taken and explained to the EU and its members, who reacted positively. Mr Deon Joubert, special envoy on market access and EU matters at the CGA, denied earlier reports that the ban was to be lifted on local citrus. He said the ban at the end

of last year’s season, because of 35 infected shipments, was “only symbolic and not practical”. This year’s discussions were on what set of rules SA would adopt for its exports. Joubert had also canvassed the preventative measures with Spanish growers and their department of agriculture. “They seemed to be impressed that it was scientifically sound and practical.” Mr Justin Chadwick, CEO of the CGA, said earlier more growers were able to withdraw produce from suspected orchards destined for the EU. “To date this year over 1 100 orchards had been withdrawn as a proactive step to reducing the likelihood of interceptions, compared to 102 orchards last year.” South Africa is one of the largest exporters of citrus to Europe and the United Kingdom, with an income of R4 billion. Citrus black spot is only present in Limpopo and Mpumalanga, while the producing areas in the Western Cape, Northern Cape and Eastern Province are not affected. *Bulletin attempted to reach Mr Pieter Vorster, the chairman of AgriLetaba, on Wednesday and Thursday to get AgriLetaba’s views on the matter. He was unfortunately not available for comment at the time.

Lim to take tough stance on Sadtu’s ‘sale’ of jobs

Anney Letsoalo (31) Nope, I won’t vote. I have my personal reasons, which I don’t think I want to disclose to anyone at the moment.

Piet Mkhari (34) Yes. For change, employment opportunities. Voting is power.

Ntsako Makhubela (34) Yes. It’s my responsibility to vote for the people I want to govern my country. Voting is my voice to speak for change.

Chantel Fourie (31) Indeed. I will exercise my right to vote.

Limpopo’s Department of Education is ready to take actions against any official who would be found to have participated in a cash-for-jobs scheme by members of the SA Democratic Teachers Union. This follows last week’s alarming reports that teachers who wanted to get promoted to principals and deputy principals would have to pay R30 000. According to Limpopo Education Department spokesman, Mr Pitsi Maloba, the department is taking this matter very seriously and has launched an intensive investigation into the fraudulent and corrupt practice. He said they would be working closely with law enforcement agencies like the Police, Hawks and Special Investigation Unit (SIU). “Those found to have been involved in this scam would be brought to book,” Maloba said. He confirmed that ten posts of circuit managers, for which the shortlisting had been finalised and the recommendations

have been handed over to the department, have been blocked. Maloba explained that the MEC and the acting head of the department would not consider the list, because it seems that there were a number of discrepancies in the selections. “We would not consider the list which we received from the districts for the positions of the circuit managers. as we would like to apply a fair process,” he said. According to a well-placed source in the Mopani District, there are three circuit managers (whose names are known to the Bulletin) who have been doing this for years. The three allegedly make the schools ungovernable, while dissatisfied teachers embarked on a go-slow to express their concerns. One teacher who even struggled to get appointed to a junior post as a teacher said she took a long time to get a job, as she did not agree to paying a bribe to a certain circuit manager. — Michael Sakuneka

Vlieg het ‘n maaier dood aan al die realiteitsprogramme wat deesdae op die beeldradio wys! En wat Vlieg se eie dood waarskynlik gaan verhaas, is dat so baie mense daarna kyk. Nee regtig! Wie wil nou weet wat 24 uur per dag in ander mense se lewens aangaan! En wat Vlieg se weersin daarin vererger is dat sy laaste paar Sondagmiddagslapies met geweld onderbreek is — deur mammie en die maaiers wat op hom kom koek in die bed en die beeldradio teen maksimum desibels aanskakel om Survivor te kyk. Dit gaan dalk nog tot meer as ‘n maaier se dood lei! Daarom dat Vlieg nou maar sal bieg dat hy teen alle wil en dank ook ‘n paar episodes moes kyk. As mammie en die maaiers eers hul lê gekry het, sukkel ‘n mens om onder daai duvet uit te wikkel. Vlieg hoef seker nou nie te verduidelik waaroor Survivor gaan nie. In hooftrekke sou hy kon opsom vir diegene wat dit nog nie gekyk het nie, dat dit ‘n klomp uitverkorenes is wat vir 27 dae leef asof hulle op ‘n eiland gestrand is. Al wat hulle kry is drinkwater. Vir enige ander lewensmiddele moet hulle take voltooi om dit te verdien, kos ingesluit. Verder eet hulle uit die veld en uit die see uit. Intussen wedywer hulle onder mekaar om die laaste een op die eiland oor te wees, nadat hulle onder mekaar elke dag een van hulle moet uitstem. Die laaste een oor wen ‘n miljoen rand! Hierdie wedywering om in die kompetisie te bly en as ‘t ware te oorleef, veral in moeilike omstandighede, lei natuurlik tot ‘n magdom intriges en dit is seker maar

wat die towerkanaal as vermaak probeer verkoop. Rugstekery, ‘n agteraf gekonkel, die smee van verbonde tussen individue, vorming van alliansies, alliansievennote wat mekaar beduiwel, openlike gejokkery, ‘n geskinder wat die haarsalon na ‘n Sondagskoolpiekniek laat lyk, verdraaiing van woorde, afjakkery, slegsêery, stelery van mekaar se karige besittings en dies meer is aan die wanorde van die dag. Vlieg verstaan nie hoekom dit nou juis as ‘n program vir vermaak aangebied word nie. Waarom moet ons nog daarna kyk op die beeldradio ook? Hoe is dit dan anders as wat dit maar elke dag by ons werke, kerke, skole, klubs, verenigings, bendes en oor die algemeen in ons lewens gaan? Vir Vlieg klink dit maar na Survivor Everyday! En met die verkniesing op hande volgende week, sien Vlieg dit is ook maar dieselfde in en tussen politieke partye. Dit sou seker wees Survivor Parliament! Ja, so is dit dan maar soos dit gaan, elkeen vir homself! Aan al die Survivors op welke vlak ookal, veral vir die hoopvolles heel onder aan die partye se kandidatelyste, dra Vlieg hierdie lied van Eric Carmen op:

No mercy for child offenders

Kwaaddoeners met ‘n vieslike drang om te vandaliseer, het in twee afsonderlike voorvalle kort na mekaar tienduisende rand se skade aan die moskee in Agathastraat, Tzaneen, aangerig. By albei geleenthede is duur glas waarop embleme van die Moslem-geloof gesandspuit is, deur die vandaliste gebreek. Daar is videomateriaal beskikbaar, waarop die jong mans wat die skade aangerig het, geïdentifiseer kan word. Mnr Junus Hassim, een van die plaaslike Moslem-gemeenskap se oudste lede, sê hulle het ter wille van vrede die skuldiges sover oorgesien. Hy waarsku egter dat as dit weer gebeur, geen genade betoon sal word nie en stappe gedoen sal word om die skuldiges voor die gereg te daag. Foto: Louis Roux

Believe it or not, underage drivers are the worst traffic offenders in the Tzaneen area. So says the provincial traffic chief for the Tzaneen area, Mr Vicky Khumalo. He said there would be no mercy for the child offenders and the parents should the child be caught driving without a licence. “Both the parents and the child will be charged with negligent driving.” According to him young offenders think they can “outrun” traffic officers and therefore put other motorists’ lives at risk. “It has happened that when we call the parents of the young offenders driving without a licence, they get angry and blame us. It is the department’s duty to protect all road users from negligent drivers,  no matter what their age.” Khumalo said he has been facing a few other challenges on the roads recently. These include speeding, drunk driving and motorists using a cellphone, texting and calling, while driving. “There has also been an increase in accidents in the Magoebaskloof and on the Modjadji’s Valley road recently. I have received many complaints from farmers in that area that motorists don’t respect the law and other road users.” Khumalo believes in a hands-on approach to complete his daily tasks and said he teaches his officers to do exactly the same. “The

Tzaneen has a mixed culture with different languages and if the officers approach people with a smile, they will receive one back.” His secondary functions include responding to calls about the many potholes as well as ensuring that long grass is reported to the right authorities to be cut. He said he is aware that the roads in Tzaneen need a total revamp, but he still feels motorists should be extra careful while driving.

Mnr Ricus Verhoef (44), ‘n bekende in Tzaneen se kunskringe, het die naweek sy stryd van byna drie jaar teen breinkanker verloor. Hy was ‘n stads- en streekbeplanner van beroep, maar het hom hoofsaaklik op die kunste toegelê en was bekend vir sy skeppingswerk met yster. Verskeie van sy handwerkartikels is in galerye op talle plekke in die land ten toon gestel. ‘n Bekende mini-kunswinkelsentrum in Tzaneen, Village on Edward in King Edward-rylaan, is deur Verhoef en sy vrou ontwikkel. Hy was ‘n boorling van Phalaborwa. Sy pa was ‘n broer van wyle prof P A Verhoef van die Universiteit van Stellenbosch se departement teologie (destyds die Kweekskool), en was een van die NG Kerk se bekendste baanbreker-teoloë. Verhoef laat sy vrou Annelie agter. Sy is ‘n dogter van die gesin Mooi van Ofcolaco/Trichardtsdal en is self ‘n kunstenaar in eie reg. Sy gaan haar nou toespits op skilderwerk. ‘n Troosdiens is gisteroggend om 11:00 in die Gereformeerde kerk in Tzaneen vir hom gehou.

Van Velden bids farewell to CEO Describing her as a brave, thorough, initiative and caring leader amongst other qualities, Van Velden Hospital’s staff and hospital board bid farewell to the hospital’s retiring CEO, Ms E L Madike, last week Friday. In a ceremony held at the hospital, staff members came together with members of the hospital board, Limpopo’s department of social health, members of the public and friends and loved ones of the guest of honour, to celebrate what speakers described as a ‘very successful’ and ‘well-achieved’ career. Madike, who has a masters degree in Public Health Management, started her career as a nurse in 1977. She worked in a number of hospitals in the area and at different levels of the profession, before joining Van Velden Hospital as a CEO in 2003.

The 63-year-old mother of four and grandmother to three says although the due retiring age is 65, she has been working for quite a while now and is ready to take a break and relax. “I leave Van Velden with much happiness at the growth the hospital has had from when I first arrived in 2003”, she said, explaining that the hospital has since managed to incorporate dental, physio, optometric and occupational services. The retiring CEO, who said her greatest achievement was to train, develop and encourage many nurses to pursue managerial positions in the field, and that she will greatly miss her ward attendants who worked very hard to keep the hospital clean. — Joy Mojela

...and Doctor now stands in as CEO A general practitioner, dr John Myburgh, yesterday (1 May) took command of the Van Velden Hospital in Tzaneen as the stand-in CEO. His appointment is in line with the decision of the national minister of health, dr Aaron Motsoaledi, to do away with CEO’s being in charge of hospitals and going back to medical superintendents who have to be qualified doctors. Myburgh, who has been working at the hospital since 2009, says his main goal is maintaining the hospital and ensuring it fits the National Health Service (NHS) co-standards for hospitals. Originally from Bloemfontein, the husband and father of one, says he passionately loves being a

doctor and enjoys helping people. Myburgh’s wife is also a resident doctor at Van Velden and the couple’s inputs in terms of getting sponsorships to improve conditions at the hospital is widely known and appreciated. Recently they arranged for sponsored quarters for doctors where they can rest and relax before or after or between shifts. They have also managed to arrange for a number of other facilities at the hospital. Dr Myburgh and his family live on the Alôn Christian Community’s picturesque farm up in the mountain at Politsi. —Rithabile Maake

Die verwarring is ook duidelik te bespeur wanneer Mantashe en die res van die kabaal probeer om pienk lipstiffie aan die grootste en lelikste vark te smeer. Twintig jaar van politieke arrogansie het diep kraters in die reputasie van die ANC gelaat — en die tyd is ryp vir ‘n alternatiewe regering. Die vraag is wie is die alternatief ? Die DA, wat die amptelike opposisie is, het sy eie uitdagings om sy diverse ondersteuners gelukkig te hou. Blankes en Kleurlinge — albei groepe wat gemarginaliseerd voel sedert die nuwe bedeling — maak ‘n groot deel uit van die DA se ondersteuningsbasis. Die VF+, Agang, Cope, die IFP en ander partye gaan nie nasionaal ‘n impak maak nie, maar kan op plaaslike vlak ‘n prominente rol speel, as verkose raadslede funksioneer soos hulle moet. Kasrils het nie ontnugterde ANC-ondersteuners aangemoedig om vir een van die opposisie partye te stem nie. Dit kon miskien ‘n opsie vir die korttermyn wees, maar die langtermyn ambisie is ‘n volwaardige werkersparty links van die ANC. Vir die regsgesinde konserwatiewes onder ons moet dit ‘n aanduiding wees dat daar baie onwaarskynlik ‘n toekomstige meerderheid-koalisieregering regs van die ANC sal regeer. Ideologies verskil ek ook van die DA oor sekere beleidsrigtings, maar dit maak my nie blind vir die werklikheid nie. Die werklikheid is dat klein politieke partye nie die vermoë het om die ANC by die stembus te verslaan nie. Die Vryheidsfront Plus is nie die oplossing vir Afrikaners nie. Hulle kan hul beleid inkleur soos hulle wil, hulle bly dogmaties en is eksklusiewe nasionaliste. Die DA met al sy foute is nog steeds die opposisieparty wat die beste geplaas is om in die toekoms ‘n baie groter rol in beleid te speel. Dit is logies dat die DA se beleid en dié van die

Dink voor jy stem Bernard Nel van Premierpark, Tzaneen, skryf: Die poging van Ronnie Kasrils en kie om ontnugterde ANC-ondersteuners te motiveer om hul stembriewe te bederf, is ‘n simptoom van die verdeeldheid in die regerende party. Goeie nuus vir die opposisie, maar slegte nuus vir Jan publiek wat aandring op gehalte dienste. Die ANC se binnegevegte veroorsaak dat die fokus op politieke oorlewing van individue is, en nie dienslewering aan sy steunbasis nie.

Dit was in die aanloop tot die geskiedkundige 1948-verkiesing, as ons reg onthou, dat een van die politieke partye met ‘n kort en betekenisvolle slagspreuk vorendag gekom het: Stem vir die reg om weer te stem! Dink mens mooi na, is dit nie die lighartigheid waaroor mens by die eerste aanhoor daarvan glimlag nie. Hoe dit aanvanklik bedoel is, is nie bekend nie... Maar vandag se dae en op ons vasteland kan dit ‘n baie beteknisvolle slagspreuk wees. Kyk maar net noord... Eweneens het die put waaruit moraliteit vir lafenis moet kom, opgedroog. Politieke leiers in talle lande (byna sonder uitsondering?) misbruik mag, verwring die betekenis van die term (grondwetlike) demokrasie, parisiteer op en steel van hul onderdane om in weelde te leef, beoefen nepotisme skaamteloos, deel gunste en gawes uit om die sleutel-rolvertolkers en die invloedrykes aan hul kant te hou (ook omkoop genoem), ensovoorts. Ons hedendaagse politici is magsdronk, hul ego’s is onuitputlik groot en hul agendas is hul eie geheim; en in dié omstandighede skep hulle die ideale teelaarde vir die vertrapping van gesonde en verantwoordelike demokratiese regering. Sodra hulle “die volk” of die “nasie” verlam het — en veral verarm het, nie net in finansiële terme nie, maar ook in terme van onderwys en opleiding, gesondheidsorg edm — kom die eenman-staat of die diktatuur of die outokrasie in wording. Dan verloor die mense hul stemreg en -krag of word verkiesingsuitslae bekook. Daarom is dit belangrik om Woensdag te stem vir die reg om weer te stem!

Vir veertig jaar was Socrates vir die wêreld `n gewaar­deerde leermeester, so ook Plato vir vyftig jaar en Aristoteles vir veertig jaar, skryf Henry G. Bosch. Jesus het net vir drie jaar sy lering ver­kondig. “Yet the influence of Christ’s 3-year ministry infinitely transcends the impact left by the combined 130 years of teaching from these men who were among the greatest philo­so­phers of all antiquity.” Jesus het geen prente ge­skilder nie, maar van die grootste en beste wer­ke van Raphael, Michel­angelo en Leonar­do da Vinci het uit Jesus se Persoon, voor­koms, gedrag en lering inspi­rasie ge­put. Jesus het geen gedigte geskryf nie, maar Dante, Mil­ton en ander van die wêreld se grootste digters is deur Hom geïnspireer. Jesus het geen musiek gekompo­neer nie, maar Hayden, Hän­del, Beethoven, Bach en Mendelsöhn se grootste komposisies is op Jesus se lof en eer gerig. So eindig Bosch sy vertelling: “Every sphere of human greatness has been enriched by this humble Carpenter of Nazareth.” Hierdie waarheid wat Bosch uitwys, geld nie net vir skryf- en kunswerke nie. Dit geld ook vir elkeen van ons se lewe. Elke mens wat vir Jesus plek in sy hart gee, se lewe word radikaal verander, gevorm en beïnvloed deur die krag van Jesus se lewe, wat die Heilige Gees in ons lewens inbring.

Letters • Briewe ANC in sommige gevalle baie naby aan mekaar is. Enige politieke party wat aspireer om ‘n meerderheidsparty in ons land te word moet met ‘n pakket vorendag kom wat aantreklik is vir die meerderheid. Die dae van eksklusiewe wit oorheersing van die politiek en die ekonomie is verby. Dit is naïef om te dink dat die DA se eerste prioriteit wit belange moet wees. Daar is niks verkeerd met herverdeling van grond en aksies om ongelykhede reg te stel nie. Die probleem is wanneer dit misbruik word om stukrag te verleen aan die toesmeer van korrupsie en uitgediende beleidsrigtings. Is daar plek vir die VF+? Ja, beslis. Die VF+, Solidariteit en Afriforum het bewys dat hulle baie suksesvol is in die monstering van burgers. ‘n Sterk burgerlike samelewing is die ruggraat van ‘n ontwikkelende demokrasie. Die realiteit is dat die DA die enigste opposisieparty is wat oor die infrastruktuur en geld beskik om nasionaal ‘n suksesvolle veldtog te loods.

Open letter M Scott Cundill, Founder and Chairman,

The New Economic Rights Alliance (NewERA), writes: The elections are upon us. I won’t be voting because I am not registered to vote. Until this year, I simply refused to support a political system that is flawed at its very core. But this time round, I regret not being able to vote.

My father was a journalist during the struggle and became well known for his attempts to write the truth about the atrocities of the old regime. Today, I wish I could follow his lead from 1994 and scream “Go ANC, Fight for freedom!” But this time, like Archbishop Desmond Tutu, I cannot. Did you know that South Africa has plummeted to last place on the global GINI co-efficient scale? We now have the worst income distribution in the world. Not the second worst, or the third worst, the worst.  The DA has done a great job of keeping the restaurants in Cape Town pumping. But the DA, like the ANC, has made no move whatsoever to reform the money system. Why? Most likely, they enjoy funding from the banks, not just as a party, but in their personal capacities. Ask yourself, have you ever seen an MP who does not drive a fancy car?  I am so sick of hearing that “jobs” are the focus of our elections, because jobs are not the problem. The root of our misery is the money and debt-based banking system that controls our government through secret dealings with the Reserve Bank. Until you reform the money system, you are merely shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic. FACT: money controls politics and money is created out of thin air by the banks. The banks are a shadow government! Two years ago we were called “Conspiracy Nuts” for saying this. Now NewERA, with the help of others, have proven it. The banks have been caught red handed on numerous occasions, destroying entire countries like Cyprus, Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Spain and the list goes on. Oh my gosh, presidents and prime ministers of these countries were physically replaced by bankers flown in from Wall Street! So what are our options for this election? NewERA would dearly love to list a dozen parties standing for a reform of the money and banking

It came into existence thanks to an Internet crowdfunding campaign and is the first and only SA party ever to be set up and funded by the Internet. They now have over 600 000 online and mobile followers. It boggles the mind, but here we are. The Ubuntu message is single minded and clear: create a People’s Bank that will give the people the power to create our own money without tax or interest. Right now, this right is held exclusively by private corporations, specifically the commercial banks and the devilishly shady SA Reserve Bank. After a 100 year monopoly, it is high time that our Reserve Bank gets some competition. Instead of banks creating money out of nothing and then loaning this made-up money to our government at interest (which the people must pay back), the Ubuntu Party will create a People’s Bank. This idea is not new. It has been successfully implemented in countries, states and provinces around the world. It has a track record of working outstandingly well which is why the banks hate it. And of course there is Iceland. Iceland has provided the world with a wonderful model of telling the banksters where to stick it. There are 160 000 NewERA subscribers reading this letter, plus all those that received this from a friend. If just one in four of you vote for Ubuntu on the National ballot, they will lobby for a People’s Bank and progressively remove our country from debt slavery. They just need one seat to make a difference. Just one seat. Once they are in, they will influence others and expose the truth. Ubuntu only needs 40,000 votes for one seat. I will say it again — they just need one seat. By all means, vote for any other party on the provincial ballot. But please, give Ubuntu a chance in the National ballot. Ubuntu is more than a political party. It is a global liberation movement, with its roots and origin here in South Africa.

Louis en Linda Changuion




Louis Changuion is in 1940 in Kaapstad gebore, maar het in Lydenburg grootgeword en gematrikuleer. Daarna het hy al sy grade tot op magistervlak aan die Universiteit van Pretoria verwerf. In 1982 het die Universiteit van Suid-Afrika die graad D.Litt. et Phil. aan hom toegeken op grond van sy proefskrif getiteld Arbitrasie of bemiddeling? Die rol van die VSA in die Anglo-Boereoorlog, 1899-1902. Nadat hy vir drie jaar ‘n navorser by Militêre Inligting was, het hy byna ‘n dekade lank die pos van vakkundige beampte (Geskiedenis) by die destydse Nasionale Kultuurhistoriese en Opelugmuseum in Pretoria beklee. Daarna was hy vanaf 1971 aan die Departement Geskiedenis van die Universiteit van die Noorde verbonde, waarvan die laaste vyf jaar, tot met sy aftrede in 2003, as hoof van die departement.

Publikasies Hy is die outeur van 21 boeke, waarvan vyf in medewerking met ander historici geskryf is. Daarbenewens het hy 24 artikels vir gewilde tydskrifte en koerante, asook ’n tiental artikels en boekresensies vir vaktydskrifte gelewer. Wanneer die onderwerpe van sy boeke en artikels ontleed word, is dit duidelik dat hy veral ‘n voorliefde vir bepaalde temas het, naamlik die Anglo-Boereoorlog (1899-1902), streekgeskiedenis, biografieë, grondkwessies en die genealogie. Changuion se belangstelling in die Anglo-Boereoorlog het neerslag gevind in boeke soos Uncle Sam, Oom Paul en John Bull – Amerika en die Anglo-Boereoorlog (Pretoria, 2001) asook Silence of the Guns – The history of the Long Toms of the Anglo-Boer War (Pretoria, 2001). Sy liefde vir die Noorde en veral vir sy blyplek, Haenerts-

burg, blyk uit sy talle publikasies met ‘n streekhistoriese inslag, waarvan sy Pietersburg – Die eerste eeu, 1886-1986 (Pietersburg, 1986) die hoogtepunt vorm. Maar daar is ook werke oor Haenertsburg en Tzaneen, Dat Changuion deur verskeie organisasies en maatskappye gevra is om hul geskiedenisse op te teken, is nie vreemd nie, want hy beskik oor die vermoë om sodanige verhale, wat normaalweg nogal erg vervelig kan wees, met passie en ‘n spatseltjie humor op skrif te stel. Sulke opdragwerke sluit onder meer in Letaba-Kommando’s/Commandos, 18891989 (Tzaneen, 1989), ‘n Skool soos PHS: Hoogtepunte uit die geskiedenis van Pietersburg-Hoërskool (Pietersburg, 2003), ‘So much to do’: The history of the Moolman Group of Companies (Pietersburg, 2008), Uit die Gemeenskap vir die Gemeenskap; die Geskiedenis van Pietersburg-Kommando (Pietersburg, 2012) en Fly-Fishing in the Land of the Silver Mist: A history of the Haenertsburg Trout Association (Pietersburg, 2011) Sy eerste boek, Fotobiografie Paul Kruger, 1825-1904 (Johannesburg, 1973), bly steeds die standaard werk wanneer foto’s van president Kruger geïdentifiseer moet word. Soos die titel aandui, is dit ‘n biografie van Kruger wat chronologies met behulp van foto’s vertel word, en dit kan steeds dien as voorbeeld van hoe so ‘n fotobiografie aangepak behoort te word. Omdat Changuion in opdrag van baie boere betrokke was by navorsing in verband met grondeise op hul plase, was hy die logiese keuse om die gesaghebbende boek Omstrede land: Die historiese ontwikkeling van die Suid-Afrikaanse grondvraagstuk, 1652-2011 (Pretoria, 2012) te skryf. Die werk het opspraak verwek en is reeds in Engels vertaal en

Die SA Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns het aangekondig dat ‘n prestige erepenning vir die bevordering van geskiedenis aan Prof Louis Changuion (van Haenertsburg) tydens ‘n spesiale geleentheid in Pretoria oorhandig sal word. Ons gee vandag ‘n oorsig van sy indrukwekkende loopbaan en lewe, om hom namens ons gemeenskap — waar hy met sy leliewit baard en golwende lang hare as gerespekteerde akademikus en gemeenskapsmens bekend is — geluk te wens.

onder die titel Disputed land (Pretoria, 2012) verskyn. Tans is hy besig om sy navorsing oor die Changuion-familie, waarmee hy reeds dekades besig is, vir publikasie voor te berei.

Vakverenigings, referate en lesings Louis is ‘n lid van al die belangrikste historiese en kultuurhistoriese vakverenigings in Suid-Afrika, naamlik die SA Vereniging vir Kultuurgeskiedenis, die Historiese Genootskap van SA en die SA Historiese Vereniging. Hy was ook ‘n raadslid van eersgenoemde twee. Daarbenewens was hy ‘n lid van die Geskiedeniskommissie van die SA Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns. Tydens vakkonferensies is Changuion ‘n gewilde en onderhoudende referent wat nagenoeg veertien referate voorgedra het. In 2002 het hy die Hertzog-gedenklesing oor Genl Hertzog en die Vrede van Vereeniging gelewer. Maar sy grootste verdienste wat voordragte betref, is waarskynlik die meer gewilde lesings wat hy voor die algemene publiek lewer oor onderwerpe wat met die geskiedenis van die Noordelike Transvaal [Limpopo] en die Anglo-Boereoorlog (1899-1902) in verband staan. Voeg daarby sy radiopraatjies en deelname aan radio- en TV-programme en die trefwydte van sy optredes reik ver. Sy televisiewerk sluit twee vollengte dokumentêre rolprente in, wat hy saam met Australiese maatskappye gedoen het.

Bewaring en monumente

Reeds as jong vakkundige beampte in die Nasionale Kultuurhistoriese en Opelugmuseum in Pretoria het Changuion met die bewaring van ons kultuurerfenis kennis gemaak. Die liefde vir ons eiegoed het deur sy loopbaan gebly. Blaai om vir die res van die berig op bl 8

A LOVING HOME THAT REFLECTS SOUTH AFRICAN DIVERSITY Consider adoption as an option. South Africa is a country with 11 official languages, hundreds of cultural groups and numerous recognised religions. Every day, families everywhere are mixing up these ingredients to create this multi-wonderful nation that we know and love. If you are thinking of adoption, have you considered adopting a child from a different race or culture? Children are just children, no matter their biological background, and all children need a loving home.

We didn’t adopt an idea, we adopted Jenna! And from the first moment she has been the love of our lives, exactly the same as a proud mom and dad would reach out for their biological baby at the hospital. The only difference is that she wasn’t born from our womb, but from our hearts.” Renier and Lise-Marie Keyser – contented adoptive parents

Vossie se topredenaars Eisteddfod om het goed gepraat die draai Die Hoërskool Ben Vorster se redenaars moes hul staal wys, toe die jaarlikse redenaarskompetisies gehou is. Al die redenaars het hulle goed van hul taak gekwyt, ongeag die feit dat die kompetisies ál hoër uitdagings aan die redenaars stel. Die onvoorbereide toesprake tel al meer punte. Dit onderskei ware redenaars van ander wat bloot voordra. Die onvoorbereide toesprake by gr 10 tot 12 tel vanjaar 80%, terwyl die voorbereide toesprake net 20% tel. By gr 8 en gr 9 was die verhouding 70% vir onvoorbereide toesprake en 30% vir voorbereid.

Die redenaars wat deurgedring het na die Limpopo-Noord Streekkompetisie van die ATKV is: Juniors: Anzeret Scheepers, Wian Jacobs, Eduard O’Reilly, Kara Greyling en Zané Pelzer. Die seniors is Talitta Smit, Gretchen Bekker, Mariska de la Rey, Isabel Opperman en Lucea Roos. Die beste junior vir 2014 is Anzeret Scheepers, terwyl Talitta Smit as die beste senior aangewys is. Vanjaar was mee Sanet Muller, Annemarie van Zyl, Nikki Pohl, Hannelie Schoonraad, Marty Reynolds en Dr Jan Truter die beoordelaars.

Many residents waited in vain for Mashatile to conduct the sodturning ceremony for the establishment of N’wamitwa’s cultural museum. Chief Valoyi arrived at the event with an apology for the Chief Felia Lwandlamuni Valoyi arrived at the venue with royal digminister’s absence. “We apolonitaries, to stand in for the minister. gise on behalf of the minister. He was not able to attend the Gróót ekskuus, Karin, event because of other commitments.” In dat ek jou verjaarsdag her welcome note she

vergeet het.

emphasised that the cultural museum was aimed at preserving and promoting the culture and heritage of the Valoyi tribe and the entire community. A space in the museum was allocated to the Valoyi tribe where their history, heritage and cultural artefacts are displayed. Valoyi is regarded as a stalwart in the fight for freedom. The project is said to have the potential to become self-sustainable and contribute to local economic development. The exhibits at the museum is said to create job opportunities, boost cultural tourism and improve the lives of the people in the area.

The project was also said to be part of government’s rural community development programme in line with the national legacy projects, which is aimed at establishing commemorative symbols for South Africa’s history and heritage. — Arnold Mabunda

Cultural artefacts displayed for the visitors.

Die opkoms was minder as wat verwag was, maar die klompie lede van die Letaba 4x4-klub het ‘n jolige dag langs die terrein van die Bosveld Jagtersvereniging deurgebring. Van die deelnemers was maar skrikkerig vir die uitmergelende roete. Die verwagting is egter dat dit nog een van die uithalerplekke vir viertrekmanne (en vroue) gaan word. Die voorsitter, mnr Johan Swanepoel (links op die foto), sê viertrekkers kan gerus die media dophou vir die volgende byeenkoms. By hom is sy vrou Annatjie, die klub se sekretaresse.

Dit nogal presies op jou dertigste herdenking! Dit sal nooit weer gebeur nie. Ek belowe. Geniet die nuwe jaar en alle beste wense. Ek wou vir jou ‘n mandjie vrugte stuur, maar Een sê jy hou so min van vrugte dat jy maar nog net twee keer by Food Lovers se Fruit & Veg was. En Christianis sê jy hou jou figuur dop en eet dus ook nie veel vleiserige goeters nie. Ek stuur dus vir jou 5 dosyn vars eiers van Lundts. Groete

A traditional dance group performed at the opening ceremony of the new museum.

Ma en dogter het ook die 4x4-dag geniet, maar eers was daar harde werk om die sake by die inskryftoonbank te laat vlot. Mee Annette Iveson en Isabel Schoeman het dié taak egter met groot onderskeiding behartig.

Mixed results for Plasie rugby Plasie rugby enjoyed their sixth match of the season on home ground, against visiting teams of Lydenburg. Could it be that the blazing sun and humid conditions after all the rain and mud influenced the Plasies during their rugby battle? Or what could have caused the rather weird way in which all the matches were decided in the final five minutes of play? Also rather interesting is that the scores never differed with more than seven points. First to play were the u.14’s. Merensky trailed with 10-0 at half time. They gave their all during the second half, leading with 12-10 only about three minutes from close of play. Lydenburg managed to score a try in the final few minutes, thus winning 15-12. Both the u.15 and u.16 teams experienced the dissapointment of winning points scored against them in the final minutes of their games. The u.15’s lost 19-12 and the u.16’s 23-

20. Unfortunately injuries took its toll late in the u.16’s game. Merensky’s second team, the “Ratels” continued their excellent season thus far, winning 17-10 against Lydenburg’s second team. In a very tough game both first teams gave everything. Running rugby delighted the spectators, with excellent defence on both sides. Lydenburg drew first blood, leading 7-5 at half time. The second half was even more tough. Keith Lawrence scored two tries, allowing his team to reign victorious with 10-7. After six home games, Plasie rugby results are as follows: u.14 played 6 won 4; u.15 played 6 won 5; u.16 played 6 won 4; Ratels played 6 won 6; 1st Team played 6 won 5 — resulting in 80% games won this season. Merensky will play Louis Trichardt High School next Saturday on Merensky’s grounds.

Plasies went cross country

Anri McLean, Danielle van der Merwe and Samuel Varrie.

Three Plasie athletes participated in the first cross country league race at the Lebowakgomo stadium. The track consisted of a 2 km circle route with lots of loose sand. Anri McClean finished third in the u.14 girls race. Danielle van der Merwe competed in the women’s u.21 race and finished in the second place. Samuel Varrie participated in the 8 km u.19 race, and took 13th place. A total of 540 athletes participated in this event.

Vossie-skuts in groen & goud Die Vossie-skuts het goed gevaar in die interprovinsiale skyfskietkompetisie, waar ses skuts van die skool na die SA skoleproewe in Bloemfontein genooi is.

Thinus Vermaak en Renaldo van Rensburg. Jan-Daniël Griesel is gekies om in groen en goud sy plek vol te staan in die SA Skolespan wat in Augustus in Bisley (Engeland) gaan deelneem. Daar is slegs vyftien sportskuts vir die SA span gekies. Jan-Daniël beklee die nommer ses-posisie in die span.

Die o.17-groep bestaan uit Precious Marobela, Naledi Mailula, Melissa Steenkamp, Naomi Munduku, Merisca Steenkamp en Tapiwa Gwanzura.

It was a tough day for Merensky’s netball when they played Lydenburg last week. Except for the u.14A’s who won their game 19-17 and the u.15A’s who managed to hold their own with a final score of 22-22, all the other teams had to bow to Lydenburgs’ superiority. The Plasie teams are eager to settle the score in the next upcoming meeting. Scores were as follows: First team lost 27-22; second team lost 20-9; u.16A’s lost 29-7; u.a6B’s lost 21-7; u.a5A’s drew 22-22; u.15B’s won 6-4 and the u.14A’s lost 19-17.

Hokkietoere was baie suksesvol

Die Hoërskool Merensky se eerste seunshokkiespan het tydens die vakansie Sportweni in Port Shepstone besoek, vir ‘n week se hokkie-ervarings teen ander skole. Die seuns het meegeding teen skole soos Bergvlam, Prestige College, Dr Malan en Randfontein High en het onoorwonne uit die stryd getree! Hulle het vier binneshuise en sewe veldwedstryde gespeel. Hulle het twaalf doele in die binneshuise wedstryde aangeteken, met slegs een doel wat teen hulle behaal is — en op die grasveld het die Plasies 25 doele aangeteken, met geen doele wat teen hul behaal is nie.

Dit het bewys die span ken hul hokkie en geniet dit. Die eerste meisieshokkiespan het ook na Port Shepstone getoer en uitstekend gevaar, deur tien wedstryde te speel, waarvan hulle sewe gewen het, twee het gelykop geëindig en een is verloor.

Beste Kameraad Fikile, Dankie vir jou onlangse skrywe waarin jy by Oubal raad soek oor die 60%-kwota vir ons sportspanne. Laat Oubal vanuit die staanspoor sê dat die Bokspan wat jy aan hom voorgelê het vir die opkomende reeks teen Wallis nie eers Limpopo se Vodacombekerspan sal kan klop nie. Oubal meen te sê, Chester op losskakel?! ‘Tja, Oubal verstaan dat jy met ‘n tameletjie sit omdat jy laas in Mangaung op die verkeerde perd gewed het en nou desperaat is om aan die wenperd te wys jy is nie ‘n kwota nie, maar ‘n minister op verdienste. Jou 60%roep was dus ‘n briljante politieke skuif, want jou mense is net so naïef soos Oubal s’n omtrent verkiesingspraatjies — joune juig en myne word die harnas in gejaag oor iets waarvan daar dadels sal kom! Nietemin, dit is vir Oubal ‘n riem onder die belt om te kan uithelp met ‘n span en jou vergunning dat ons spelers mag kies wat tans

Die Hoërskool Ben Vorster het teen die Hoërskool Lydenburg kragte gemeet en die Vossies het al hul wedstryde gewen. Die Vossies se eerste netbalspan was ontwrig deur beserings en moes veg om hul ritme te vind. Na die eerste kwart was hulle net met ses doele voor en tydens die tweede kwart het hulle vyftien doele aangeteken en die oorhand gekry. Die eerste span het tydens die derde en vierde kwart met meer akkurate aanvalspel die oorhand behou en met ‘n groot telling van 41-18 gewen. Die uitslae was: o.14A: 33-10, o.14B: 18-5, o.15A: 24-19, o.15B: 18-9, o.16A: 24-4, o.16B: 21-15, o.17A: 19-5 en eerste span: 41-18.

Jannelize wen wéér Jannelize Bessenger, ‘n gr 12-leerling van die Hoërskool Ben Vorster, het aan die Hans Merensky Gholfklubkampioenskappe in Phalaborwa deelgeneem. Sy het ‘n ronde van agt houe oor baansyfer gespeel en moes die volgende dag ‘n baie goeie ronde speel, om in die kompetisie te bly. Jannelize speel toe die volgende dag die gholf wat haar ‘n kampioen gemaak het en speel gelyk aan baansyfer (72). Sy het sodoende vir die vyfde jaar agtereenvolgend die klubkampioenskap gewen.

Fikile se Verkiesing Fidusie* oorsee speel, het die kopkrappery effens minder gemaak. Oubal glo jy weet dat ‘n span uit 23 spelers bestaan en daar dus 14 Bokke van kleur moet wees, wat nie almal vleuels mag wees nie. Oubal stel voor jy kondig die volgende span drie dae voor die verkiesing aan, dus eerskomende Sondag: 1. Beast Mtawarira, 2. Chiliboy Ralepelle, 3. Trevor Nyakane, 4. Eben Etzebeth, 5. Flip van der Merwe, 6. Siya Kolisi, 7. Nizaam Carr, 8. Duane Vermeulen, 9. Fourie du Preez, 10. Frans Steyn, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 12. Jean de Villiers, 13. Juan de Jongh, 14. Bryan

Habana, 15. JP Pietersen en 16.Bandise Maku, 17. Gurthrö Steenkamp, 18. Jannie du Plessis, 19. Luvuyiso Luseseni, 20. Willem Alberts, 21. Charl Mcleod, 22. Elton Jantjes, 23. Gio Aplon. ‘Tja, neef Fikile, hy voldoen aan al jou vereistes en jy moet toegee dis ‘n beter span as wat jy voorgestel het. Glad nie te versmaai nie, maar Oubal voorsien ‘n paar probleme en kritiek. Oubal weet nie of Eben en Giotjietjie teen Junie al oor hul beserings sal wees nie en dalk is Flip weer geskors. Oubal dink ook Jannie is so verknog aan sy boetie dat hy dalk nie sonder hom sal speel nie, in welke geval jy soos Heyneke kan maak en sommer vir Lourens Adriaanse of Frans Malherbe oproep! Oubal vermoed Heyneke gaan beswaar hê oor daar te veel Stormers en te min Bulle is, maar sê vir hom jy soek meer sigbaarheid op die veld. Heyneke gaan ook sê dat jou span dalk vir Wallis sal kan klop, maar nooit die All Blacks nie. Wys hom daarop dat hy nog nooit die AB’s

met enige ander span kon klop nie, iets wat selfs Peter de Villiers kon regkry. So wat is sy punt? ‘Tja, neef, Oubal kan jou ongelukkig nie help met kwotas vir die swemspan nie. Oubal verstaan net so min van swem as jy, maar dis immers die sport wat in onlangse tye die meeste Olimpiese medaljes gewen het. Plaaslik het ons genoeg moeilikheid met swemmers dat Oubal nie nog ‘n versuiping ook op sy gewete wil hê nie! Oubal wens jou sterkte toe met die uitverkiesing, maar moet ongelukkig jou aanbod van Direkteur van Sport van die hand wys. Oubal dink nie jy gaan na Woensdag in ‘n posisie wees om enige aanbod te maak nie, neef. Koebaai, kameraad!
