Chicken and beef increased by 9,25% since last September therefore people are being forced to switch to buying feet, heads, necks and livers as well as turkey.

Cabbage “People can’t just live on maize meal, rice and potatoes alone. This hasmajorimplicationswhenitcomes to dietary diversity because they need other minerals and vitamins in order to function properly,” said Smith. The Pacsa report comes after the South African National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (SANHANES) released its findings recently that the diets of South Africans are dense in energy and lack nutrition. Penny Jarvie from the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) Department of Dietetics and Human Nutrition, said that dietary diversity is im-

portant to ensure adequate intake of essential nutrients. “This is of particular importance for young children as it can result in poor growth. High rates of obesity, seen in South African women in particular and increasingly among young children, are linked to these energy dense diets which are high in fat,sugarandsalt,combinedwithlow levels of activity. A healthy diet includes mealie meal, bread, and rice, but with the addition of vegetables, fruit, legumes as well as chicken, fish, meat and eggs. Cheap foods tend to be high in starch, sugar and fat which fill

people up and can contribute to weight gain, but don’t provide the micronutrients our bodies need,” said Jarvie. Pacsa also noted that the price spike peaks over the Christmas period are worrying, as price spikes do not return to previous levels. With the Msunduzi Municipality electricity increase at seven percent, Smith said that most families have also moved from cooking three times a day to only twice or once a day. Pacsa’s director Mervyn Abrahams said that four local retail stores were used in tracking food prices.

“As Pacsa, we believe that the impact of the inflation on poor households gets lost when you look at the inflation rate of the consumer price index, because that is averaged out so it’s the rich and the middle class whose interest really determines foodprices.Weconsiderthisreportas one of the most important indicators of whether we in the city are indeed advancing social and economic development. “We hope that this report will change how government deals with its poverty alleviation programmes,” said Abrahams.

ITH 60% of the Pietermaritzburg population earning less than R3200 per month, poor households in Pietermaritzburg have stopped buying meat and chicken and are instead buying stock cubes and different soup flavours which are rich in salt, just to get that meaty taste in their dishes. Presenting the 2013 Pietermaritzburg Agency for Community Social Action (Pacsa) Food Price Barometer, Pacsa researcher Julie Smith said that eating meals, which are dominated by starches and salt, have major health implications. Pacsa is a faith-based social justice and development non–government organisation (NGO) which has been operating since 1979 and focuses on socio-economic issues. The Pacsa food price report reveals that Pietermaritzburg’s poor households spend about 47% of their earnings on grocery items which are mainly dominated by staple foods in the starches category, and include maize meal, baking flour, potatoes and rice. Smith said that with the food price inflation on the 2013 Pacsa food basket of 32 food items sitting at 8,7%, poor families cannot afford to buy vegetables and dairy products. Moreover, with the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommending an intake of five portions of fruit and vegetables per day to protect against non-communicable diseases (NCDs), the imbalanced diet means an increase in malnutrition in impoverished households.

ChamberHouseattheshowgroundsandatTembalethu Trust in Burger Street. BESG addresses human settlement issues faced by communities. BESG’sexecutivedirectorCameronBrisbane said there are many non-governmental organi-

sations (NGOs) which have withered away because they could not move with the changing times to ensure that what they do remains relevant to the community. “We are one of the oldest, and clearly very resilient, NGOs in KZN. We are also the only NGO in KZN that supports communities through all stages of low-income housing development, and one of the few in the development sector which works as intermediaries between the government and communities. Celebrating a big anniversary is a way of reflecting, consolidating, and renewing the organisation’s vision, mission and activities,” said Brisbane. At the event at Chamber House, BESG met with stakeholders from the government, NGOs and tertiary institutions, where Brisbane gave stakeholders a glimpse of the history of the organisation. “We launched our new distress fund which is aimed at attracting corporate social investment and individual donations to help us respond to housing emergencies when [the] government is unable or unwilling to assist. This would be in cases of, for example, destruction of a shack through flooding, high winds or fire. Then we held a celebration with stakeholders from the communities with whom we work across the uMgungundlovu District,” said Brisbane.

SBESG was formed in 1983 and grew out of a faculty of Architecture and Allied Disciplines at the Howard College, formerly known as the University of Natal Durban, as a voluntary or­ ganisation that focused on fighting for the rights of indigent communities to live in urban areas around Durban and Pietermaritzburg. From 1988 to 1993, BESG was involved in negotiating land rights for communities, set­ tlement planning constructing services such as roads, water and sanitation. Under the new National Housing Subsidy Scheme, from 1994 until 1998, BESG pioneered community driven developments. However, along the road, there were a few hiccups. “The introduction of the Public Finance Management Act forced BESG to tender for housing projects as an implementing agent to a dysfunctional local government. Communi­ ties were marginalised in the process. As a con­ sequence, the first three projects we won at tender all became bogged down in municipal bureaucracy and our relationship with commu­ nities became fractious. We withdrew from housing work temporarily in 2005 due to the hostile environment created by the new public procurement framework. Together with other urban development NGOs around the country, we drafted a new policy for Community Driven Housing Development which former housing minister Lindiwe Sisulu endorsed. It became national policy in 2009 under the title ‘En­ hanced People’s Housing Process’,” said Bris­ bane. For the past three years BESG has assisted communities to secure administrative justice in cases such as arbitrary eviction. “We re­entered the housing delivery indus­ try. We launched Greener Pastures, a project that works with vulnerable communities to manage the impact of climate change on their housing and livelihoods, caused by severe flooding, wind and drought. In spite of many NGOsfacingshrinkageorclosureduetotheglo­ bal recession and the flight of foreign donors from South Africa, we are needed critically by communities as much now as in the early days of democracy,” added Brisbane.

Police suicide, headache for authorities >> In many cases police officers are not emotionally and psychologically prepared to handle stressful situations NQOBILE MTOLO

>>nqobile@pmbfever.co.za

A

DAY before the national police departmentheldasuicidepreventionsummitto address suicide within the police force, Constable Mthandeni Sibisi (36) shot his wife Nana Sibisi (31). Seconds later he turned the firearm on himself. He died on the scene. Nana sustained serious injuries. One of Mthandeni’s co-workers from the Loop Street Police Station said that the couple, who lived in Sweetwaters, had marital problems, but never thought he would shoot his wife or turn the firearm on himself. “He was down to earth and very humble. We are all shocked by what has happened. We [police] are trained in coping mechanisms and how to handle our temper and our emotions. However, it seems that this suicide trend within the police force has become the ‘in-thing’. It’s a bad habit and should be addressed,” said the coworker. At the summit in Pretoria, Minister of Police Nathi Mthethwa said in many cases police officersarenotemotionallyandpsychologicallyprepared to handle stressful situations which come with the nature of the job, thus leading to a catastrophic blow to their mental wellbeing. “Police officials deal with high job and task demands on a daily basis. In some of these tasks police officials must absorb many emotions from the community ranging from anger, frustration, sadness and more. Police officials are also exposed to negative media reports and criticism from the community as well as socioeconomic and political dynamics within the community. “We need to highlight the reality that, when police officers go off duty, they become part of the same community they were policing a few hours earlier. Arguably, this has the potential toelevatesomeofthestresslevelsandtensions and we have ample evidence of cases where some officers are insulted and threatened,”

said Mthethwa. Police records show that in 2009 there were 73 police officers who committed suicide, 97 in 2010,85in2011,98in2012andfrom1January to June 30 this year only 34 police officers were recorded to have committed suicide. Mthethwa said that this creates a bleak picture and proposed a multifaceted approach to solve this. “Our analysis indicates that the trends in the commission of such suicides include utilising a service firearm, hanging and overdosing by tablets. Predominantly we also discovered that tension in personal relationships, marital problems, infidelity, trauma, depression and mental health issues and poor financial management are the main drivers. “Members are urged to proactively take responsibility for their personal health and wellness. Commanders are also urged to pay attention to the wellbeing of their members,” he added. Police commissioner Riah Phiyega said that in most cases police officers are reluctant to talk to their co-workers about their problems because they fear that doing so might be harmful to their career. “They make the mistake of trying to solve their problems quietly and this often leads to alcohol or substance abuse, or suicide. Stress is taking its toll on police officers throughout the

think of your investment according to how far you have to go until retirement. If you have a long time before you retire, you can invest in growth securities, such as equities and property, which have the potential for higher returns.

When you are close to retirement, your investment time period shortens and it is advisable to reduce your exposure to volatile assets. You would not want to expose your savings to possible negative returns closer to retirement. However, it is important that your savings is not invested in an overly conservative manner either.

HE first exhibition to be presented in both English and Zulu has been officially opened at the KwaZulu-Natal Museum. “Freedom: A local history of the struggle for racial equality and freedom in South Africa” took three years of research and two years for the construction of it. Bridgette Johnson, deputy director of exhibitions, said that the idea behind the construction of the exhibition was to look at the struggle and localise it by including accounts and experiences from ordinary people in Pietermaritzburg, and not only focus on historical icons. Phila Msimang, a direct descendant of Richard Msimang, a founder

member of the African National Congress, was involved in the exhibition. Speaking to the Maritzburg Fever he said that the experience of working at the exhibition gave him a new perspective on his own history. “I realised how much I take for granted and learnt the significance of even the simplest things,” he said. The exhibition is one of the most interactive ones in the museum and includes touchscreens, working telephones, TV screens playing recorded items of information and interactive interviews with local people and organisations that fought apartheid, and highlights those honoured by the city street names. “This exhibition is about taking research and making it into an experience,” said Johnson. The exhibition includes a life-size

taxi, which was cut into four parts so that it could be placed in the exhibition hall. It was then rebuilt and is now able to seat a load of people. The interactive feature takes visitors on a tour of historical places in Pietermaritzburg. It also includes the restoration of a railway carriage to highlight the story of Mahatma Gandhi, the construction ofaSobantu-stylehouse,ajailcelland an apartheid-style classroom. The speaker of the Msunduzi Municipality, Babu Baijoo, was present at the opening, on behalf of Mayor Chris Ndlela. He said that the municipality is proud of the museum’s achievements. “This exhibition will go a long way in ensuring that the stories of people are told,” said Baijoo.

Featuring two of KZN’s oldest and most respected bands – The Magnets and The Tyles – the audience will be taken on a nostalgic musical journey. Karou Charou is the emcee, but without doubt, the wow factor of the show is nine­year­old Saiyan Naidoo of the Tyles, who plays lead guitar like a seasoned professional. Watching him play Dire Straits, Santana, The Eagles and Deep Purple has reduced men to tears. The Battle of the Bands will take place at the Aryan Hall in Khan Road on October 26 at 7.30pm.

Ultrabooks have been pushing through the market lately and have been the topic of discussion amidst a lot of business end users. In this article I will be looking at some of the universal features of the Ultrabook series, and explain why they are taking the world by storm! The first thing to look at is end-user vision. The Ultrabooks primary market (although not the only market) looks at business end users. Ultrabooks look gorgeous, they are sleek, shiny and versatile. As most business users will know, looking professional plays a massive part in creating a good impression when dealing with prospective clients. The Ultrabook series also uses a unibody chassis made from brushed aluminium making it lightweight aswellasdurable!Theyaredesignedforhigh-endlow-powerIntelProcessors that plays a substantial part in the incredible battery life – 5 to 8 hours, although this will be changing with Windows 8.1 to last even longer! Ultrabooks also feature a lot of high end parts to improve the performance as well as the battery life. USB3.0 and either Solid State Drives or Hybrid Hard Drives are the two main contributors to this. Another contributor to speed and lifetime based reputation of the Ultrabook is the optical drive. Most Ultrabooks are now shipping without the optical drive as it has become redundant over the last few years, however if needed, a portable DVD-ROM can still be connected to the device.

Ghosn’s next 4x4 in South Africa is set to raise some dust

Renault’s new Duster SUV.

Eat its R

ENAULT’S new Duster SUV makes a greatfamilyrideevenwhileventuringoff the beaten path, giving you the option of tapping into your wild side. A few years ago Renault-Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn tasked his companies with creating its first global family car that was spacious, could go-anywhere, was budget-friendly, but sexier than a B-segment sedan. The Duster, built in India, retails from R194 900 to R239 900. DESIGN The Duster has a wheelbase of 2.67m and generous ground clearance. Its rugged design gives it its own personality enabling it to shrug off any “baby Koleos” references. “The Duster is the perfect fit for South African roads as it is equally at home on highways and suburbs as it’s off the beaten track. It’s the perfect companion for families who need their car to adapt to their outdoor activities,” said FabienPayzan,RenaultSouthAfricavicepresident of marketing and communication. POWER The Duster is launched in 4x2 and 4x4 guise

with two specification levels (Expression and Dynamique) and has two engine options — 1.6 petrolandthe1.5turbodiesel.Bothenginesare mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. DRIVING IT It has good ground clearance and 4x4 suspension. To tackle inclines and descents the Duster is equipped with a short first-gear ratio. Overall the Duster proved itself to be a spacious, practical and adventurous SUV. It rides well, handles confidently, both on and offroad. RIDE AND HANDLING The Duster dismisses the worst patches of road and its suspension goes about the business of absorbing bumps and undulations with aplomb. The handling is great and has surprising road-hugging ability with negligible body roll. LOADS OF KIT The boot has a capacity of 475 litres which expands with the option of split-folding rear seats. A standard kit includes air-conditioning, power windows and side mirrors, remote central locking, height-adjustable steering wheel and driver seat, CD-MP3 with aux, Bluetooth and satellite controls, and rear parking sensors. The Dynamique derivatives are equipped with 16” alloys, chromed door handles, roof bars, side sills, mirrors and skid plates. Inside, drivers will be treated to a leather steering wheel and gear knob, black inserts in the dashboard and an 18cm touchscreen navigation system. The Duster can be customised with Styling, Touring, Adventure and Protection packs. — Wheels24. SIDE-MIRROR CONTROLS ARE WHERE? As to be expected, a Renault is not complete without a dash of quirky and on the Duster this manifests in the bizarre placing of the side-mirrorcontrols—inarecessbelowthehandbrake. PEACE OF MIND Having a good product is only half the battle, Renault will still have to deliver on service and reliability. Marred by its reliability issues in the past, Renault gives South African customers peace of mind selling the Duster with a threeyear or 45 000km service plan, which can be extended, and a five-year or 100 000km warranty. According to Renault, spare parts are not a point of concern as it “retains over 17 000 parts in its warehouse in Pretoria”.

Hilton speech day >> Speech day celebrated the success of Hilton College pupils for 2013

Carter pupil scoops seven awards

Hilton College recently held their speech day which celebrated the success of their pupils for 2013. The guest speaker was Alistair Franklin, a Hilton Old Boy, who is senior counsel at the Johannesburg Bar. Franklin reflected on his time at Hilton and what he thought was the Hilton ethos. It was a tremendous speech, which was humorous as well as delivering a good message. He commented on the qualities of courage, loyalty, determination, per­ sistence and said that a ‘never give up’ attitude is important in this day and that inspiration as opposed to being famous was important. Ross Osborn (head of school) and Paul Harrison (deputy head of school) scholarships were announced for 2014, The head of school 2014 is Tom Webber and deputy head of school 2014 is Jono Smithers. At the event are (from left) Simon Purdon, Mike Salgado, Yann LeClezio (chairman of board), Alistair Franklin, Peter Ducasse (headmaster), Tom Webber and Jono Smithers. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

>> ‘Imparting knowledge and giving the kids the opportunity to improve their skill levels, you can’t put a price on the satisfaction I gain from that’ HE Cricket School of Excellence established a platform in Pietermaritzburg with its first clinic in the KZN capital and if the enthusiasm exhibited by the likes of Merchiston first XI captain Shaun Smale and fellow participants Easton Skolnic, Ujjval Nirghin and Yusuf Sha is anything to go by, the future looks good. The Merchiston nets were a hive of activity under the direction of head coach Naveen Ramnarain and executive assistant Graeme Beghin. “Imparting knowledge and giving the kids the opportunity to improve their skill levels, you can’t put a price on the satisfaction I gain from that,” said Ramnarain, a Cricket SA levelthree coach.

Run in red for Cansa

Collegians Harriers launch new ‘Duke’ route THE annual running oftheDukeofYork16 km road race is all set to take place on October 27 via the new scenic route through the Lower Mpushini Conservancy. The “Duke”, as it is affectionately called, was first run in 1926, making it one of South Africa’s oldest road-running races. The new start will be at the Ashburton horse training centre, and the route follows the district road down to the Campbell’s checkpoint on the Msundusi river, before winding it’s way up the steep gravel road to the new finish at the Bishopstowe Hall. The race starts at 7am, and is open to all licensed and non-licensed runners and walkers. Race entry is R70 for licensed participants, with temporary licenses for non-licensed entrants being on sale for an additional R20. A five-kilometre family fun run/walk is also being organised in conjunction with the Duke, starting and finishing at the Bishopstowe hall. The fun run is to start at 7.30am. Entry is R20, with no official licences being required. Entries for the event will be taken on October 26 at the Collegians Harriers Clubhouse at 381 Boshoff Street between 2 and 5pm and on October 27 at the start of each event, up to 15 minutes before the gun. As per the usual tradition with the 16 km event, gold medals will be awarded for sub-55 minutes, silver medals for sub-60 minutes and bronze medals for all other finishers under three hours. Medals will also be given to all finishers in the fun run. For more information, race entry form and directions to the finish at Bishopstowe hall, go to www.colle giansharriers.co.za This race is being promoted as a litter-free event and any runner or walker found dropping litter along the route will be removed from the results and will not receive a finisher’s medal.

ON’T be shocked if you are faced with a group of men running in nothing but red speedos on 8 November — they will be doing it for a good cause. As part of its Men’s Health Campaign during November, the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa) has teamed up with Etana and Community Chest to bring something a little different to the city, and will be hosting the inaugural DareDevil Run. The DareDevil Run has been taking place every year for the past five years and encourages men from all walks of life, regardlessofage,toparticipateinthePietermaritzburg edition of the national race, which takes place annually, however, is the first in the city. While women are mostly the centre of attention when it comes to cancer awareness and have their own month for breast cancer awareness, November is the men’s chance to have the spotlight on them. “The awareness of male cancers is much lower than the awareness of female cancers, particularly in terms of the regular prostate specific antigen screening and testicular self-examinations that men

should be doing, just like women should do breast self-examinations and pap smears. The message behind this run is very important. The more men know about male cancers, and the more responsibility they take for having themselves screened regularly, the better the chances that cancer can be caught early and the better the prognosis for treatment,” said Lisa Strydom, Cansa regional manager. The race aims to raise money for cancer research and treatment and to create awareness for the very real need for men to be as vigilant of male cancers, specifically prostate and testicular. All proceeds from this daring race are for the benefit of Cansa Pietermaritzburg. Entry is R100. which includes the red speedo used for the four-kilometre race. The organisers aim is to get over 5 000 runners to take part nationally, which will breaktheGuinnessBookofWorldRecords as the largest gathering of speedo-clad men in one place. For more information or to enter online, visit www.daredevilrun.com or email chestpro@communitychest.org.za or john@aghall.co.za for entry forms. Entry forms can be dropped off at the Community Chest offices (Stranack Street) or Cansa house in Killarney Terrace.
