The Gauteng Provincial Government has visited the community of Vosloorus, south of Ekurhuleni, to check on the progress made by government in regards to service delivery. Premier David Makhura led his team of MECs and the City of Ekurhuleni officials to the new developments in the

areas. Informal settlements like the Vumbuka section were visited. “Vosloorus is one of the most developed townships in the province,” said Premier Makhura during the Ntirhisano community meeting on Thursday, May 10. The community in attendance were restless then the Premier said this, some argu-

ing that that statement might not be factual. It was a fully packed Vosloorus Stadium, with residents from all around the township coming to hear what government has in store for them. Also, this gave residents an opportunity to voice-out their concerns and problems with the officials. Challenges faced by the

Vosloorus community include high levels of unemployment, crime, stormwater and the mushrooming informal settlements surrounding the township. City of Ekurhuleni executive mayor Mzwandile Masina said the community of Vosloorus is included in the City’s plans. “We promised

the people that, as government, we will build 100 000 houses in the next five years. Earlier today, we took the premier and his team to the new development in extension 28, where the municipality is working together with national and provincial government to provide dignified houses,” said Masina.

Lesedi Local Municipality thanked residents for their patience.

LALA NGOXOLO CREMATORIUM REOPENED Work to service the newly installed furnaces for cremations at the Lala Ngoxolo crematorium in Crystal Park has been completed. On 26 January 2018, the City of Ekurhuleni took the decision to temporarily close Lala Ngoxolo crematorium due to growing technical issues with the newly cremators. “Following thorough inspection conducted by the contractor appointed by the city to install and service the cremators, work was completed on Wednesday, May 2, and the facility is now ready for service,” the city said in a statement.

Germiston building ablaze on FireFighters Day!

Ekurhuleni Firefighters responded to the emergency of a multi-storey building that caught fire at the corner of Park Road and Garden street in Germiston. The day of the incident coincided with the International Firefighters day in honour of the global firefighters who lost their lives while on duty. But the local firefighters managed to put out the fire with no fatalities. On arrival at the scene, the middle storey of the three levels was well alight and flames protruding through the windows spreading to the upper level as well. According to Disaster & Emergency Management Services spokesperson, William Ntladi, the cause of the fire originated from a electric double plate stove that was left unguarded while cooking. “The entire floor caught alight because of wooden

material used for partitioning. A total of 22 rooms burnt to ashes fuelled by number of LPG cylinders which exploded during the active firefighting operations. No casualties or fatalities were accounted for because of the blaze.” The scene was handed over to the Police for further investigations.

Disaster and Emergency Management Services (DEMS) would like to encourage members of the public to memorise local emergency numbers to have effective service delivery during life threatening emergencies. “The challenge encountered on scene was members of the public who attempted looting the shops at the ground floor and that interfered with our smooth operations hence law enforcement had to be called for safety purposes,” said Ntladi.

Balfour Campus host TVET Choir Competition! On Saturday, May 5, Gert Sibande TVET College Balfour Campus held its first choir competition at the I.M Manchu High School. Students showed off their capabilities in singing solos, mezzo, tenor, baritone & quartets, mixed western & mixed vernacular, poetry, drama, hip-pop dance, pantsula dance, gumboots, pencil drawing and brush painting. The purpose of the competition was to select a winning choir that will represent Gert Sibande provincially with other TVET Colleges. Balfour Campus competed against Standerton Campus, Perdekop Campus, Evander Campus, Ermelo Campus & Sibanesetfu Campus. Furthermore, the aim is to motivate and grow students in the persuasion of their talents by participating in various categories. Campus Manager (Ms Zine Beku) couldn’t

resist holding her emotions with her opening remarks by appreciating the committee for having confidence in Balfour Campus to host such an incredible and noticeable event. Mr M Mbethe (Sports, Arts & Culture Chairperson) made positive remarks about executing such a great event, he later thanked the committee responsible. Participants and choristers braced themselves from hearing final results from adjudicators, as each choir and groups from all categories had a tight head to head battle. The Balfour Campus gave a mega show down of brilliant performances and celebrated four trophies in: Female voice, Male voice, Tenor and drama. However, the Sibanisetfu Campus were the overall winners to represent Gert Sibande provincially. Our most appreciation goes to our Choir Conductor Mr Thulani Thulare for his contribution to this triumph.

Choristers of the Gert Sibande TVET College in Balfour who took part in the competition. The Gert Sibande TVET College annually hosts an annual student event that seeks to establish and encourage a variety of extra mural activities for student participation, and this year was no different. Extra mural activities such as speed typing, spelling bee, debates, public speaking, quiz, Mathematics and Science & innovation competition all recently took place at the Balfour Campus. The overall winners will be selected to represent the Balfour Campus in the G.S College TVET provincial inter campus competitions, facing other campuses from the Mpumalanga district. Because students have different gifts and talents, these extramural activities give them a platform for those that cannot take part in other sporting codes in the campus.

Gauteng adopts smart tech to fast track infrastructure projects! Gauteng Infrastructure Development MEC Jacob Mamabolo on Tuesday (May 8) unveiled the province’s multi-billion rand project portfolio to be delivered in the next three years. The portfolio is made up of 340 projects valued at about R4.5 billion, with R1.7 billion being allocated for the 2018/19 financial year. Speaking at a media briefing to unveil the project portfolio, MEC Mamabolo warned that during the delivery of the projects, under-performance and poor quality will not be tolerated. To ensure that projects are carried out, MEC Mamabolo said his department will use drones to monitor progress at the various sites of construction. MEC Mamabolo said the pressures posed by rapid urbanisation

and migration have resulted in the escalation of demand for social infrastructure services such as schools, libraries, health facilities and community centres.

“As the Department of Infrastructure Development (DID), we are proud to say that the last two years have been the most testing as we laboured to explore long term solutions to resolve construction and implementation challenges. DID has now officially moved away from classifying projects based on the traditional practice of size and costs to include other critical indicators needed for efficient management of the project life circle and successful delivery to beneficiaries. In the past, it was not easy for stakeholders to clearly monitor projects under implementation. Project information was also inconsistent making it extremely dif-

ficult for the department to be held accountable. Those days of working in the dark are now over. We will no longer experience the back-and-forth movement of projects, which were often placed on the business plan yearafter-year without any significant progress. “We have had to roll up our sleeves and put down systems and processes that would prepare us for the future,” MEC Mamabolo said. The MEC has assured that all the pipeline projects were subjected to the Project Readiness Matrix (PRM), an innovative tool designed by the department, to assist in the assessment of all the critical and stage specific Infrastructure Delivery Management System (IDMS) requirements, before projects are considered for inclusion in the pipeline. - Mapepeza Reporter

SACP Gauteng hold congress in Benoni! The newly elected SACP Gauteng Province Officials were unveiled at the 12th provincial congress of the South African Communist Party (SACP) in Gauteng in Benoni recently. Despite the surfacing of threats to the life of their General Secretary Blade Nzimande, the congress went on successfully. Over 500 delegates from around the province gathered for the two day meeting which ended on Sunday, May 6. The newly elected structure is as follows: Provincial Secretary: Jacob Mamabolo, Provincial Chairperson: Joe Mpisi, Provincial Treasurer: Khosi Mabaso, 1st Deputy Provincial Secretary: Mpapa Kanyane, 2nd Deputy Provincial Secretary: Sekete Moshoeshoe, Deputy Provincial Chairperson: Mandla Radebe. Newly elected SACP Gauteng Province additional members of the PEC: Hope Papo, Joe Morallana, Lulama Nare, Nkosinathi Ndwandwe, Molly Dhlamini, Tebogo Phadu, Duma Nkosi, Dr Aquina Thulare , Bheki Ngobese, Nelly Mokele, Victor Chiloane, Mosidi Manor, Lesley Kwena, Hilda Monkwe and, Mahlatse Koma. During the congress, Minister Dr Blade Nzimande, the longest serving General Secretary of the

SACP after Moses Kotane, delivered the keynote speech providing a detailed analysis of the international and local class balance of forces to the Congress. He was joined by the entire collective of the national officials and comrades of the party. On Saturday (May 5), the Gauteng SACP celebrated the 200 years since the birth of Karl Marx, a world renowned and celebrated founder and scholar par excellence of scientific socialism and communism. Comrade Solly Mapaila, a young but highly effective militant of the Party delivered a moving tribute on the theory, practice and life of Karl Marx. “Karl Marx’s ideas continue to live on across the globe whilst the morally bankrupt and obsolete bourgeois and petty bourgeois ideas are in drastic and severe decline. As the capitalist system reels from one disaster to another, its chief ideologues and puppet masters are running for cover in shame as they are daily exposed as the falsifiers of history, philosophy and true science. These slanderous, wicked and venomous false prophets of bourgeois ideology dismally fail to provide satisfactory answers to profound questions facing humanity including and most importantly, on the real causes of the crisis ridden nature of capitalism, and why the system destroys productive

Gauteng Infrastructure Development MEC Jacob Mamabolo and Head of Department Bethuel Netshiswinzhe demonstrate to the media how the drone will be used to monitor progress in their current and upcoming projects all over the province.

capacity every time it experiences decline, recession and depression. Delegates rejoiced that ideas of Karl Marx will never die.,” says the SACP in a statement released after the congress. The 12th Provincial Congress also celebrated the life of Moses Kotane, who died on the 19th May 1978, buried in Moscow and the reburied in our country on the 14th March 2015 in Pella, Moses Kotane Province.

Moses Kotane a self-taught scholar before he studied in Moscow was a worker, communist and peasant that rose within the ranks to lead SACP, ANC and trade union movement. He was indeed the living embodiment of the class Alliance whose organisational form became the Tripartite Alliance, that later included the South African National Civic Organisation-SANCO (SANCO). His role especially in the early 1930s on the ideas that finally found concrete expression in the Freedom Charter, evolved in the midst of a polemical debate in the SACP contained in the pamphlet known as the Native (Black) Republic Thesis. The congress concluded with the SACP Gauteng adopting a set of resolutions based on the outcomes, and seeking to implement those of the 14th National Congress.

“Expose young people to the workplace” Mabuza urges business!

Deputy President David Mabuza has called on more business leaders to make it their business to adequately skilled young people at educational institutions and at the work place through internships. Speaking at the Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) Summit in Kempton Park on Thursday (May 10), the Deputy President applauded South African companies who are partnering with education institutions to ensure that graduates are better prepared for the demands of the economy. “We applaud those companies that are supporting our

initiative of Adopt-a-TVET College and ensuring that our curricula matches the needs of industry. “A number of South African business leaders and their companies are also actively involved in adopting some of our schools and investing in the training of our teachers in critical subjects like Maths and Science,” he said. Greater collaboration is required between social partners to inform learners and expose them early about the various career options available and those careers that are set to be in demand for many years in the future.

It is managed by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET).

As a result, Shabalala mainly was supported by the school. Teachers would take turns buying him food and toiletries. He also spent a year staying at a friend’s place after his mother kicked him out of his shack, and later compelled the family who took him in to also expel him as well.

He’ll spend a year in China, where he will study for six months at the Zaozhuang University and do apprentice for another semester.

FC Barcelona and Sundowns to clash at FNB Stadium! On the day which marks 24 years since the inauguration of the first democratically-elected President Nelson Mandela, it was announced that Barcelona FC and Mamelodi Sundowns FC will play a friendly match. Chairperson of the InterMinisterial Committee on the centenary of Nelson Mandela, Jeff Radebe, made the announcement in Johannesburg on Thursday (May 10), saying the match forms part of events to mark what would have been Madiba’s 100th birthday. The friendly will be played at 6pm at FNB Stadium on 16 May. Minister Radebe said the two teams will follow in Madiba’s footsteps of uniting people across regions and continents. “As the IMC, we would like to congratulate the cooperation that has been displayed in the hosting of this game

between the football authorities of our country, and the management of the two teams,” he said. The Minister believed Mandela would be happy where he is, that his name is being appropriately linked to an effort that united people across the oceans. He said the celebration of such an icon as Madiba, should not be limited by costs factors. Tickets for the clash are on sale, starting at R40 up to R550.

“Both teams are recognized as champions in their continents and their leagues, and despite the misfortune that has befallen Barcelona to Roma last Tuesday, South Africans will be delighted to see their heroes in action. South Africans fall in love with and love their sports icons through thick and thin.” On behalf of the IMC, he wished the teams well.
