She was sent home to die T
anyile Nolangeni who was at the scene in town when Msolo collapsed said as PAC they had a serious concern about the hospitals of Mthatha and its management and said they need to be monitored. He said they will write a letter to MEC S’celo Gqobana asking him why there was no improvement in Mthatha hospitals. The Department of Health spokesperson, Sizwe Kupelo said the department will investigate the matter.
he younger sister of the late Phathiswa Msolo (30) who died after Mthatha General Hospital allegedly “chased” her away due to a lack of beds in the hospital to admit her, believed that her sister would still be alive if she got the necessary help from the hospital.
Phatheka Msolo (29) said Phathiswa, who is from Qinisa location near Libode, went to the hospital on October 23, vomiting and suffering from diarrhoea. Phatheka claimed she and their granny had accompanied her sister to hospital and she did not got decent help. “She spent four days sleeping on the cement floor waiting for the doctor to examine her. After examination she was told to go home because there were no beds in the hospital, despite the fact that she was unable to walk,” said Phatheka “The nurses gave us cold shoulders although they could see that she was very sick. No one was willing to assist us. We took our shoal (blanket) and lay it on the floor to let my sister sleep on it since she was complaining that she was unable to sit on the bench whilst we were waiting for a doctor. “We were at the hospital from Wednesday October 23 until Saturday October 26 the day when the doctor arrived. All those days she was sleeping on the floor,” said Phatheka. “I’m not a nurse but I have never seen an empty drip left in a patient the entire day without taking it out. That was what happened to my sister. Even when we were asking the nurses to remove it, they would tell us to leave it like that. I thought the hospital is the safest place for a patient to be, but on

that day I realised that you can die even if you are there.” “I saw my sister in pain in hospital for four days without getting any help and we did not even know where we can ask for help because we were right in the hospital. I don’t wish to feel the pain my sister felt in front of the nurses and after that she was discharged to die,” she said with tears rolling down her cheeks. Phatheka said when they were told to go home she asked if they can’t be transported to town but no one was interested to help and they boarded a taxi to town. She said while they were in town her sister collapsed. She called an ambulance which took about two hours to arrive even though they were in
town. She was taken back to the hospital where she died the following day. Phathiswa was buried last Sunday at her home in Qinisa location near Libode. She left behind her 11-year-old daughter and three siblings. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Mthatha General, Dr Giovarni Perez said he was deeply touched with the report. “Nobody should die in circumstances like that, even if somebody is going to die we should treat him or her with the respect they deserve as human beings,” said Dr Perez. He said that there was a lack of resources in most hospitals in the OR Tambo region and the situations needs to be corrected. Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) leader Kh-

After two years still no housing for relocated group NOMTHANDAZO DUZE PROMISES to provide a group of Eastern Cape informal settlers with housing after they were resettled, have still not been honoured. The group, who originally lived in Lingelitsha outside King Williams town, were forced by the Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality to move 20km away to Majarantiyeni in Berlin, in December 2011, owing to health concerns related to damp caused by a high water table. “We were told that the area we lived in was not fit for human habitation because of the damp. The councillor told us at the time that
we wouldn’t have to stay in Berlin for more than 18 months. Nearly two years have gone by and no progress has been made on the promise,” said Majarantiyeni resident, Masixole Jikela. The residents and all their belongings were moved to Majarantiyeni, which is adjacent to the industrial area close to Berlin, and settled in temporary housing. The group of 200 residents were provided with two communal taps and four toilets, which fellow Majarantiyeni resident Amanda Koni says is not ideal. “We have to stand in queues just to use the toilets. At night we don’t dare go to the toilet because the area is a haven for criminals who
break into our houses while we aren’t there,” said the unemployed mother of three. Fellow resident, Mary Titimani, said another problem with living in Majarantiyeni was that their children no longer have access to government transport to get them to school. “I now have to use grant money to pay for transport to school, which means I end up not having enough money to pay for food,” said the 79-year-old Titimani, who looks after her four grandchildren. Buffalo City Municipality Metro spokesperson, Thandy Matebese, said the Metro was aware of the situation at Majarantiyeni, but that nothing could be done until the Housing Development Agency (HDA) had secured land
for the construction of low-cost housing for the Majarantiyeni residents. “Once the land has been acquired, the Metro will apply for funding in order to install services and for the construction of housing,” said Matebese. He said at the time the Lingelitsha residents were moved to Majarantiyeni, the four toilets were sufficient for the number of households that had to be relocated. “However, our sewage inspector has been instructed to investigate the matter and provide us with his findings. If there is a shortage of ablutions, the Metro will make provision for the installation of more toilets to meet the demand,” he added. – WNA

Many young EC voters not going to the poll ZIZI HLUNGULU – WNA MANY prospective young Eastern Cape voters don’t want to vote in next year’s elections because they don’t think their vote will change anything. A study by consumer insights company Pondering Panda showed that on average, nearly 21 per cent of the youth in the province won’t vote, while nearly 24 per cent haven’t decided who to vote for, with 56 per cent already knowing who they will vote for. “I don’t think my vote will make any difference next year. This democracy isn’t what I believe it should be, so I won’t be voting in next
year’s elections,” said East London student Eric Gyimah. Vathiswa Ntaka (24), a student from Idutywa, said she was still confused as to whom to vote for. “I’m not sure yet of which political party will bring change to the country. But if I decide to vote, I’ll vote for a political party other than the ruling party,” said Ntaka. Pondering Panda spokesperson Shirley Wakefield said it was significant that one in five prospective voters aged between 18 and 34 still haven’t been swayed by any one party. She added that the party that can inspire undecided voters and convince apathetic younger people to vote will amass big gains in 2014.
The Eastern Cape study was conducted with 267 respondents between 18 and 34. “Recent studies conducted by Pondering Panda have shown that these are people who are disillusioned with South Africa’s political parties and don’t believe that things will change, regardless of their vote,” said Wakefield. Young Communist League provincial secretary, Mluleki Dlelanga, said the league had a responsibility to make sure that young people vote in next year’s elections. “We’ll be visiting universities and communities around the province to convince young people to vote for the ANC. We’ll mobilise in a youthful style with youthful programmes,”
said Dlelanga. Democratic Alliance Youth League provincial youth leader, Andela Kepe, said the apathy and lack of interest displayed by young people in the province is a reflection of the ruling party’s leadership. “The DA Youth League will focus on youth programmes, voter education and ensuring young South Africans understand the importance of voting. Kepe said the league would be launching “a massive and exciting national youth registration campaign” before the registration weekend. “It will be an exciting campaign that we believe will connect with the youth and make them want to register,” said Kepe. - WNA
Unemployment still too high in the Eastern Cape THE unemployment rate in the Eastern Cape remains too high. This according to a recent media release by Bobby Stevenson, DA MPL and Shadow MEC for Finance. He said, the province has the secondhighest unemployment rate at 30,8 %, according to the Quarterly Labour Force Survey released by Statistics South Africa on Tuesday, October 29. This was the same figure as in the previous quarter. Only the Free State fared worse in the third quarter, where the unemployment rate is 34%. Stevenson said the Eastern Cape is caught in a vicious downward spiral where people are leaving the province because of a lack of job prospects. “The result is that our equitable share is cut. This is a double blow to the Eastern
Cape as we lose talent on the one hand and the necessary funds to improve quality of life in the province on the other. Drastic action is needed to turn the situation around.” Year-on-year, the Eastern Cape had the highest increase in unemployment, of 2%. “Rampant corruption and the consequences of cadre deployment are scaring off potential investors. “Anger with the current government is increasing as people feel that one needs to be connected to get a job, especially in the civil service.” The Eastern Cape has the highest expanded unemployment rate, of 44,3%. The expanded unemployment rate includes people who have given up on looking for work, which represents 1 059 000 people (aged 15-65).
“Getting a job is the most important step on the ladder of opportunity. It enables one to get ahead in life and escape the poverty trap. What the Eastern Cape needs is strong political leadership to turn this province around. Three crucial steps must be implemented to improve job prospects: quality in the education system; enhancing youth employment prospects by implementing the youth wage subsidy; and creating an enabling environment for entrepreneurs by cutting red tape and corruption and delivering basic services at attractive rates,” said Stevenson. “We need to optimise exciting economic opportunities in the province. The recent labour unrest in the motor industry is a serious disincentive for foreign direct investment.”

Commercialisation of circumcision a huge problem – Ngangomhlaba
SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE THE Chairman of the Eastern Cape House of Traditional Leaders, Chief Ngangomhlaba Matanzima, has said that the commercializing of circumcision was still a problem and it was a reason why the death rate was escalating in the mountains (circumcision schools). Matanzima mentioned the OR Tambo and the Alfred Nzo regions as the areas that were mostly affected by the plight. Matanzima said this while addressing the media in Mthatha after a three-day meeting aiming to find ways of curbing the plight which the custom was faced with and also drafting a programme of action. He said this programme would start to operate from November until February 2014 but it would not end there, as they would be targeting all the circumcision seasons throughout the province.
Matanzima revealed that they had established a task team which would draft a plan which could be used to fight the problem of deaths in the circumcision schools. He also stated that some traditional leaders in their areas have not taken the responsibility to own the custom. “By hosting this meeting we need to go to them and make them understand the importance of taking responsibility as traditional leaders. “We also want the department of health to provide more training to traditional surgeons and traditional nurses and also make sure that they play a leading role in monitoring the circumcision schools,” said Matanzima. Dr Litha Matiwane from the department of health, said the department was committed to working with all stakeholders involved, to help fight this battle. He said there were initiatives before that
were on a mission to fight the problem of deaths of initiates at the circumcision in the province. Among the people who attended the three day meeting were traditional leaders, Department of Health officials (both national and provincial), SAPS, inkcibi (traditional surgeons), amakhankatha (traditional nurses), members of the forum dealing with circumcision, NGOs, and officials from the departments of education and social development.

Eastern Cape legislature officials suspended BULELWA BULI QOTOYI
THE Secretary of the Eastern Cape Legislature, Phumelele Ndamase, had issued final written warnings for the three legislature, local government and provincial government officials who were doing business with the state.
These officials were suspended for being involved in the rendering of services while they were still in the employment of government institutions. This follows the adoption of a policy on business interests for employees that were signed in December 2012, which clearly prevents
employees from doing business and remunerative work with the state without seeking permission from the Provincial Speaker, Fikile Nxesi. The officials suspended include two officials from the Supply Chain Management Unit and one from the communication section. The officials were suspended from their positions on October 28, pending their disciplinary proceedings. “We are not saying the three officials are guilty, but we will allow an investigation to establish the facts and when the final findings are made, we will then make them public,” said Ndamase. He said they have tried to engage with the employees, but all three had failed to respond,
therefore further action would be taken against them and those who continue breaching the policies of the legislature. “The message that we are sending, is that officials entrusted with certain responsibilities in the legislature should be faithful and do their duties diligently,” he added. This information was revealed in the Management letter for the 2013/14 Audit report which stated that specific employees who are on the Legislature payroll are involved in doing business with the state without seeking consent. The names of the suspended officials are still being withheld.
Justice system THE Secretary of the Community Policing Forum (CPF) in Libode District, Malizole Nohaji, has lambasted the justice system for failing to keep the criminals behind bars and described this as something which jeopardises their work as people who work against crime within the communities. “They are ‘selling’ us out to these criminals,” he said. Nohaji said this during the toyi toying which was led by women from the Nxukhwebe location in Libode. They were protesting outside the Libode Magistrate’s court, following the arrest of a man who was accused of allegedly raping and killing an old woman at the same location. It also alleged that a sharp object was used to stab the deceased’s ragina. Nohaji’s utterances followed after several incidents had occurred where the criminals got arrested and were later on released to stay within the same community who perhaps played a role in making sure that the criminals were arrested in the first place. Incidents like these are similar to that of one Nxukhwebe woman, Nosandise Mabandla, who was shot in the throat allegedly by a criminal who was trying to rob her. The man who was accused of the crime was released and no further charges were pressed against him. “I went to the identity parade and I pointed out the man, but I was never called to testify in court. I only heard in the court corridors that there was no evidence that linked the man with the robbery or for shooting me. I’m not safe because the man is out there and I don’t know what he thinks when he sees me,” she said. Nohaji said most people who committed crime in their area are roaming around the streets and rubbing shoulders with their victims which alone can put the lives of the victims and people who lead to the arrest in danger. “SAPS is playing its role by arresting criminals, but the justice system must also play its part by teaching criminals a lesson.”

SUGAR daddies were among the many topics discussed by a group of young women from different Eastern Cape universities recently. Almost 150 students were invited by Eastern Cape women’s magazine Favour, to participate in a dialogue to discuss issues that affect female students, especially how a lack of money played a role in sex and HIV/Aids. “I haven’t ever dated a sugar daddy, so this event and the discussions we had were a real eye opener,” said Walter Sisulu University student, Asandiswa Mashece. She said she learned through the discussions that young women should learn to appreciate themselves, live their lives according to their own standards and not pursue unrealistic goals. The dialogue was organised jointly by the Eastern Cape Aids Council (ECAC) and Favour to provide a platform for discussion on what life is really like for young
women at university. “We want to work together with young women to create interventions that will help us reduce the number of new HIV infections,” said ECAC directorate head Vuyisile Dayile. He said the council focuses particularly on young women between 16 and 24 years old, as they make up 50 per cent of new HIV infections in the Eastern Cape. “We know that young women are sexually active and we want them to make informed decisions,” said Dayile. Another participant, Buhle Nangu, said many young female students often don’t know how to cope with peer pressure and end up engaging in risky sexual behaviour. “Young women must stop dating sugar daddies, sleeping with older men in exchange for money and expensive gifts,” she said. Nangu added that more opportunities to exchange information and advice should be provided to help students cope with life at university. - WNA

Children fitted with Bone-Anchored Hearing Aids REPORTER THE Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital launched its Bone Anchored Hearing Aid programme recently, when four children were fitted with the device that enabled them to have near-normal hearing. Western Cape Health Minister Theuns Botha said, “Providing support to children with disabilities that can improve their opportunities in life, is the vision of our government.” Bone-anchored hearing aids are given to people who have an intact and functioning cochlea but have hearing difficulties because the sound cannot get to the cochlea.

Dr Estie Meyer, an Ear Specialist in the Ear Nose and Throat department, explains: “If a patient has ear canals that are too narrow, is born without ear canals or has an external ear deformity and cannot be fitted with a normal hearing aid, a bone-anchored hearing aid should be considered.” There are two main parts to the bone-anchored hearing aid: the titanium implant and the sound processor that clips onto it. In adults the bone anchored hearing aids are surgically fitted to the skull to channel sound to the inner ear. In children the hearing aids can only be surgically fitted at about nine years old but until then the sound processor can be fitted with a headband until the child has reached surgical age. “The titanium implant does not integrate well into the bone before then,” Dr Meyer, said. “The hospital has made funding available for four sound processors to be fitted.” Currently about six to eight children need this type of assistive listening device annually. These children will only be able to receive their sound processors when funding becomes available. One sound processor costs approximately R25 000. Among the children who have received a sound processor this year was one-year-old Mpilontle Maso. Mpilontle, was born with microtia in both ears, which means she has no ear canals. Mpilontle was referred to the hospital by an ENT specialist in private practice when she was one month old. The family are from Mthatha, Eastern Cape, and have to commute to the hospital for follow up appointments. “When she is wearing the sound processor she is able to hear the sounds around her including her family’s voices,” said Dr Meyer. “The ENT team have looked forward to assisting our children who are our future to start their most important developing years being able to hear.”

‘OR Tambo was like Moses’ - Mantashe
THE Secretary General of the African National Congress (ANC), Gwede Mantashe, likened the late former ANC President, Oliver Reginald Tambo, to Moses, who led his people to freedom. Mantashe was addressing a fully packed Mthatha town Hall during the OR Tambo Memorial Lecture last week to wrap up OR Tambo month events. OR, as he was affectionately known, was born on October 27, 1917, in the Nkantolo location in Bizana. From those humble beginnings, Tambo became more involved in the fight against apartheid and he became president of the ANC from 1967 to 1991, as the predecessor of Inkosi Albert Luthuli. Mantashe said Tambo was a good example of a leader true leader owing to his discipline. “A man who fought for the liberation of South Africans at all costs. He developed himself because he knew that the future was not in his own hands. He attended the University of Fort Hare, where he met people like Walter Sisulu and Nelson Mandela. Mantashe revealed that OR Tambo was
a commander in chief who mobilized solidarity within the ANC and Umkhonto We Sizwe and described him as an internationalist. He said Tambo was the only secretary general of the ANC who became president despite his poor background. Mantashe also called on current political leaders to follow in the footsteps of OR Tambo and not put their personal agendas first. The OR Tambo memorial Lecture was graced by the presence of provincial and national leaders of the ANC and community members from the OR Trambo region.

LOCAL IS LEKKER: CHICKEN MADRAS
Passion is the secret ZIYANDA SIDUMO COOKING is in the blood for Ravin Gooranah of Irana Indian Food restaurant in Berea. Gooranah started cooking with his father at the tender age of seven years. While other boys of his age played ball outdoors, he was busy helping his father cook. His father, who was a chef for 45 years, taught him how to prepare mouthwatering Indian food and his dream was to own a restaurant, but he passed away before he could fulfil his dream. â€œMy father had this amazing passion for cooking which he passed on to me. He knew everything there is to know about cooking Indian food. Sadly, he died before fulfilling his dream and in honour of him I told myself that I would have my own restaurant one day and name it after him, Irana,â€? said Gooranah. The Mauritius born Gooranah packed his bags and relocated to South Africa 30 years ago to find ways of starting his own restaurant. After 20 years in the country he finally managed to start up his very own restaurant. Irana Indian Food Restaurant has been operating for nine years now and has recently moved to Chamberlain Road in Berea. It serves a variety of Indian foods such as curries and for those who like eating on the run they have a take-away menu with sandwiches, burgers and bunny chow. Every Monday to Friday they have buffets. â€œI wanted to create a place where everyone would feel welcome. I know some people are busy and donâ€™t have time to sit and dine and
Umgosi Who spoonfed you to be an alcoholic? Sometimes we fail dismally to understand people because they start something on their own but at the end they ask other people to help them. Why? Last weekend we were with a guy whom you can see he is taken by alcohol. This guy was drinking alcohol like no oneâ€™s business whereas on the other side he

for that reason I created a take-away menu,â€? said Gooranah. The restaurant is decorated with white leather chairs and couches. The friendly staff and waitresses make you feel at home. Gooranah said working together with his staff and conducting weekly training is what makes the restaurant have quality customer service. â€œI respect my employees. We work together all the time and that is the kind of attitude one needs to have in a business,â€? said Gooranah. Ravin Gooranahâ€™s favourite chicken madras recipe: Ingredients
1kg chicken fillet 2 tsp cumin 1 tsp dania 1 tsp garlic ginger 1 large onion chopped 0.5 tsp turmeric 4 tsp yoghurt 4 large hot chillies Salt and pepper to taste
Method 1. Fry onion in 2 table spoons of oil until soft. 2. Lower the heat and add all spices as well as few drops of water and braise slowly. 3. Add chopped chilli, salt and pepper.

was appealing to any Good Samaritan to assist him quit alcohol. How can you help someone who was still doing what he wanted to be removed or helped to stop? No, no man, donâ€™t play. What you were saying was impossible if you need help, you must help yourself first then other people would follow, seeing that you were trying to quit. And on top of that we were not there when you were starting to drinking alcohol, so zama ke stop calling other people because they were not there when you started.

Sometimes he would go to Roadhouse wearing womenâ€™s underwear on his head. Esingazi ke nokuba kwakungekankosikazi. Shame, kwakucaca kona ukuba da man uyile eskolweni and xa esober ungamphikela. So ke after we logged in UTA sanqaba eRoadhouse nathi sesidibene namajita amjojo siwayekile ama-parasite who were always in the joint.

FOCUS ON: 2014 WESBANK/SAGMJ CAR OF THE YEAR FINALISTS
Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG REPORTER THE most powerful 2.0-litre engine ever produced – this is what AMG engineers are most proud of when talking about the new A 45 AMG. For the first time too, AMG has developed its version of the Mercedes-Benz AClass, as part of Mercedes’ strategy to have an AMG version in every model series they produce. The new A 45 AMG also features 4MATIC all-wheel drive which helps a great deal in translating the mammoth 265 kW and 450 Nm into a 0-100 km/h sprint time of just 4.6 seconds. Technology and performance expertise, which AMG engineers have gathered in their years of producing legendary engines like the AMG 5.5-litre biturbo V8 and the AMG 6.0-litre biturbo V12, has been filtered into the A 45 AMG, along with other technologies like the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT-7 gearbox which incorporates a proper race-style launch control.

School gets sport kit NOMVUYO NTANJANA
DONATING soccer and netball kit to Xhentse Senior Secondary School (SSS) in Dalaguba, recently, Fezile Manina said he was inspired by the Minister of Sport and Recreation, Fikile Mbalula’s passion to mould the youth. The Xhentse SSS is a science institution with 264 pupils learning in only four classrooms which were built in 1997 by members of the community. Manina As, a father of three who had not had a proper job in 17 years, said he had never thought he would be able to contribute to the development of Xhentse SSS, but because of Mbalula’s passion to mould the youth, he saw the need. “Through the years, I’ve witnessed the school and its challenges, and I’ve tried to assist here and there, but something needed to be done for pupils to keep their priorities straight, and off drugs,” he said. He urged those present during the hand over of the kit to embrace and encourage the role played by the school. Expressing words of gratitude, the school’s principal, Fikile Qoyi, said the donation and the day would forever be etched in everyone’s memory. “Patriotism begins at home, and this will help ensure that our students are mentally fit for their exams,” said Qoyi.
