Concern over circumcision death toll The Eastern Cape is topping the national circumcision death toll this winter season, despite efforts to curb deaths. On Monday the initiate death toll stood at 24 with 16 reported in the OR Tambo District, 3 in Chris Hani, 3 in Alfred Nzo, 1 in Buffalo City Metro, 1 in Amathole and 1 in Joe Gqabi. Several have also been admitted to hospitals and rescue centres. To relieve the pressure at hospitals, the Eastern Cape Health Department will set up field hospitals in the form of tents with essential equipment to provide IV fluids, antibiotics and wound care for injured initiates.

Dream government job taken away AYANDA MILLISA MADIKIZELA HE thought his problems were over now that he had finally secured a job in the government sector, but all of that was taken away within a month of Litha Sigcau’s employment.

Litha Sigcau (40) says he has been betrayed by the Department of Social Development.

Sigcau (40) was employed as part of the National Youth Service programme by the Department of Social Development in Bizana in June 2013. But that was short-lived. Only when Sigcau did not receive his monthly stipend as agreed in the contract and he questioned this, was he told he had been wrongfully employed and did not qualify for the post. “I was shocked to be told that the post was especially for the youth and I should not have been hired in the first place.” He said he needed answers to what he called negligence by the department. “My rights have been violated here. I never got any kind of remuneration and I demand that because it has been almost two years I have been looking for answers,” he said. Provincial Social Development spokesperson Gcobani Maswana said since this was a serious matter, a team of officials had been sent to Bizana to investigate.

Residents help cops arrest robbers POLICE officers and community members arrested two suspects after a robbery at Mdeni location in Centane last week. The suspects, aged between 36 and 38, were from Coloured Township in Butterworth. It is alleged that they approached a shop owner at Mdeni Location in Macibe Village, Centane, armed with a rifle and dagger. Police spokesperson Captain Jackson Manatha said the two men had allegedly demanded money at gunpoint. “The shop owner handed an undisclosed amount of money to the suspects. They also took tobacco, airtime and cellphones. Members of the community who saw the incident alerted the Centane police,” Manatha said.

He said both the police and the community had chased and arrested the suspects. They also recovered the rifle and the stolen goods. The police also recovered a getaway car that had been hidden a distance away. Manatha said a check would be made to ascertain whether or not the car had been stolen. The rifle would be sent for ballistic tests to establish if it had been used in other crimes in Centane and the surrounding towns. Both suspects have been charged with robbery and one was also charged with possession of a unlicensed firearm. They will appear before the Centane Magistrate’s Court. – BABALWA NDLANYA

The late Tata Mandela took an initiative to spend 67 minutes of his time helping the poor and those who are unable to help themselves and he spread that nationwide and South Africans welcomed it with both hands. This initiative usually start on his date of birth, July 18 runs until the end of his birth month and it is recognized nationally and internationally. Since this day is around the corner Chief Balizulu is preparing to visit the old people of Qunu whereby she will share the wisdom of life, give them gifts and shows that she still loves them even though they were house bound. “This is what our forefathers used to do but because of westernization we ended up losing our culture of caring for each other until Tata Mandela initiated this 67 minutes. In the olden days it was not strange to see young people helping an adult by swiping the floors of any adults home in the village or wash the dishes for them as it was part of our culture, so this 67 minutes need to be instil to our people because we are not practising something which is new,” she said. Balizulu said this day is no longer for Mandela but “we need to teach our children about the important of assisting each other as it was existing even before the civilization took over.” She said her main mission to visit the old people is to provide happiness so that they can realize that even after the passing on of Mandela there are still local leaders who will take care of them even though it is difficult for them to move around. “I am also going to visit those who are sick and show them that a person is a person because of other people (Umntu ngumntu ngabantu),” she said.

EC tops circumcision deaths SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE THE Eastern Cape Province is topping the national circumcision death toll this winter season, despite efforts to curb these deaths. It was also recently reported that several initiates were admitted to hospitals and rescue centres. On Monday the initiate death toll stood at 24 with 16 reported in the OR Tambo District, 3 in Chris Hani, 3 in Alfred Nzo, 1 in Buffalo City Metro, 1 in Amathole and 1 in Joe Gqabi. Limpopo has recorded one death and Mpum-

alanga has also reported one death. Gauteng had the highest number of illegal schools, with a total of 22 that were closed down. A total of 89 initiates have been rescued since the start of the initiation season on June 20. The Deputy Minister for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Obed Bapela, has condemned irresponsible people who operate illegal initiation schools with no regard for the law and safety of the children, but are motivated by greed for money. “This is a national crisis looming before our eyes and a complex matter that needs all stakeholders to work together in preventing our cul-

tural heritage from being hijacked by criminals,” Bapela said. The Mhlontlo Local Municipality and the Traditional Authority will also be launching a campaign to create awareness, best practice and joint controls during this season. Mhlontlo comprises Tsolo and Qumbu, which has already recorded at least two deaths. Traditional leaders led by Inkosi Bakhanyisele Ranuga have called for collaboration to curb deaths in initiation schools. They vowed they would work tirelessly as traditional leaders to ensure there would be no more deaths this season.

Field hospitals plan for initiates SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE THE Eastern Cape Health Department will set up field hospitals to relieve the pressure at hospitals which are admitting injured circumcision school initiates. Spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo said this

Kupelo said an implementation plan would be announced soon. Some hospitals are overcrowded, particularly in Pondoland, due to the large number of initiates being admitted. Some cases are botched circumcisions and others are initiates beaten up at the schools.

would entail setting up tents with essential equipment and stretchers to provide IV fluids, antibiotics and wound care. “These initiates will be supported and provided emergency care until they are stabilised and either sent back to the schools or referred for admission to hospital.”

Elliotdale residents ‘wait for Eskom feedback’ BABALWA NDLANYA RESIDENTS of the Madwaleni Administrative Area in Elliotdale says Eskom has asked for 21 days within which to respond to their complaints. One of those who took part in a service delivery protest at Madwaleni recently, Unathi Qakamba, said, “If Eskom comes up with nothing we will continue with our action because we are tired of feeling neglected in this area.” “We don’t have electricity, let alone water and houses. We are tired of this situation and that is why we decided to stand up and

block the road. We did this to attract the municipality’s attention.” Madwaleni residents blocked the road to the Madwaleni Hospital for two days, which led to critically ill patients having to be airlifted to the Nelson Mandela Academic Hospital in Mthatha as ambulances were unable to enter or leave the hospital. The Eastern Cape government condemned the illegal actions and said it had received unverified reports that some of the instigators had been disgruntled local councillors. Mbhashe Municipality spokesperson Mzimasi Dyomfana said the municipality and Eskom had gone to address the protesters

about the way forward. “In ward three, protesters were informed by Eskom that the area had already been surveyed and designed. “Maybe by the end of this month they will start to electrify the area. In Madwaleni, Eskom told the protesters that they were not catered for in this year’s financial year, but if Eskom received funds it would start to electrify the area,” Dyomfana said. According to him, no one had asked to be given 21 days to respond. He said what he knew was that a team had been selected to represent community members to inform them about what was happening about the electricity.

Fear of more bloody clashes SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE THE clashes between the Libode localities over employment have raised fears of more blood being spilled following an incident that left two people injured early last Tuesday (July 7). The feud between the Masameni and Khuleka localities erupted over the employment of 72 people for the construction of a mental hospital at St Barnabas Hospital. Attacks by members of both localities ensued and they pelted each other with stones and sticks. Shots were also fired and a ward committee member was wounded twice and a 32-year-old resident was hit in the leg. Both were rushed to hospital. The situation in the area is tense as no one is prepared to give up. It is alleged that people who are resident in the area where the hospital is situated are being employed, although the project was meant to benefit the entire ward. Some accused the ward councillor of employing people who are close to him. The police confirmed they had been called to the area. Spokesperson Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela confirmed that two people had been shot in this incident. He said they had advised the relatives of the injured people not to send them to St Banabas because of safety concerns and they had agreed to send them to another hospital. The localities involved in the feud include Masemeni, Khuleka, Dokodela, Nxokweni, Mtyu, Didi, Mafini and Katilumla. These localities are not new to bickering as the Sanral R61 road construction project passing Ntlaza had to be stopped recently after residents of these locations complained about being left out of employment. The work carried on after negotiations. Fatyela said no one had been arrested yet, but investigations continued.

Residents promise to take further action and close the road again if they don’t get a positive response. PHOTO:BABALWA NDLANYA X1Q8WYME-160715-TE-ebnnon-FIGO

Plough land first and housing will follow MEC Qhoboshiyane SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE TILLING the land should take priority over housing, says Eastern Cape MEC for Rural Development and Agrarian Reform, Mlibo Qhoboshiyane. Qhoboshiyane was addressing community members and farmers during his visit to Mqanduli last

Joy as new Gengqe hall handed over SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE THE residents of Gengqe, Mqanduli, have a brand new, R2,1-million community hall. They packed the hall for the official handing-over ceremony attended by Rural Development and Agrarian Reform MEC Mlibo Qhoboshiyane. He told the audience, which included officials of the King Sabatha Dalindyebo Municipality, to

take good care of their new asset. “We need the community members to beautify the hall by planting flowers around it and there must be no vandalism. It is a great privilege to have a hall while others are burning theirs down in service delivery protests. People must learn to protect what they have been given by the government. So it is the responsibility of the community of this area to take care of this asset.”

Nasiphi Sobhuwa said they could hardly wait to make use of the hall. Previously youth groups had nowhere to hold meetings or host events. “We normally use the schools and churches to conduct our meetings, but now it’s over as we have a space to host our meetings. She said the hall would also reduce the expenses of the community, who were compelled to dig deep in their pockets to hire tents for events like weddings.

Wednesday. He said South Africa was faced with a dilemma where people demand houses but had empty stomachs. “How can you enjoy the stay in that particular house if you don't have anything to eat? Our people need to instil in their minds that agriculture is a priority because it brings food to the table. Once agriculture becomes dominant in a family, there will be no poverty. Plough the land then follow with houses,” he said. He stressed that he did not mean people must not get houses, but they must ensure they have something to eat. This would also reduce the chances of crime escalating. Qhoboshiyane also revealed that he would soon return to Mqanduli with a R4-million project to restore the culture of cultivating land in the area. “We need 1 500 hectares to be used in Mqanduli for cultivation and people must roll up their sleeves to make this dream a reality. In the same area of Mqanduli we are opening new dams for cattle and revitalising 112 dipping tanks,” he said. Qhoboshiyane’s department recently pledged R30-million for ploughing in the OR Tambo region. The farmers of Mqanduli welcomed the promises of the MEC and said they would work hand-in- glove with the department.

Single mothers also culprits Bahleli iinyanga bengena manzi in illegal circumcision AYANDA MILLISA MADIKIZELA

SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE SINGLE parents are contributing to the escalation of illegal circumcisions by giving their underage children money to be circumcised, even without the knowledge of elder men of the family. This was revealed in a meeting hosted by AmaMpondomise traditional leadership in partnership with the Mhlontlo local municipality in Tsolo last Friday. An incident was mentioned in which a 14year-old boy was sent to the iingcibi and was not circumcised properly and he ended up admitted to the Malizo Mpehle Hospital in a critical condition. The meeting was chaired by Mhlonntlo speaker Xolile Nkompela, who stressed that the traditional leaders in the area must stand up and ensure that there were no more deaths. Nkompela said women must understand where their roles ended because this custom was for men only. Women were also invited to this meeting and were given clarity on their role in this custom. By the time of going to print, the Eastern Cape

was leading in the death toll with more than 22. Mhlontlo, which comprises Tsolo and Qumbu recorded two deaths. It was highlighted at the meeting that the women gave the boys money without the knowledge of the men in the family or even having full information about the ingcibi who was going to conduct the circumcision. Inkosi Bakhanyisele Ranuga said everybody needed to stand up and fight deaths at initian schools directly. He called on parents and the community at large to take full responsibility in this fight. He also urged the justice system to play a role in arresting illegal iingcibi because there were those who had committed the same offences last season, but had never been arrested. Instead, they continued injuring the boys. Some of the resolutions at the meeting were that a circumcision indaba should be held in August with all stakeholders, a rescue centre should be established next to Dr Malizo Mpehle Memorial Hospital, visits should be made to affected areas, as well as constant visits to initiates’ dwellings, forums should be strengthened, especially with the Justice Department, and meetings should be held fortnightly.

Police spokesperson Captain Jackson Manatha said the man had bullet wounds to his upper body. “The police are investigating a case of murder but no one has been arrested yet.

The man’s identity is unknown. He was dark in complexion and was wearing jeans, a brown hat, a tracksuit top and navy T-shirt.” He said anyone with information about the murder should contact the Msobomvu police station at 047 6920180.

Kidnapper arrested while sleeping on the job REPORTER BUTTERWORTH police arrested a man (21) for kidnapping a 25-yearold woman after she managed to escape and flag down a patrol vehicle when the alleged kidnapper fell asleep. Police spokesman Captain Jackson Manatha said the victim had accompanied a woman friend to her flat at Extension 7 Butterworth on Saturday, July 11, at about 2am. “While the victim was returning to her own flat, she came across four men armed with knives. “The suspects demanded a cellphone and money from the victim,” Manatha said. One of the suspects then dragged the woman to his home at the Yako informal settlement on the N2 road. He allegedly claimed that the victim was his girlfriend and ordered the other three men to go to their homes. Manatha said the victim had been told to undress, but she had refused. The suspect then fell asleep and the victim managed to escape and stop a Butterworth police van which was on patrol along the N2. “The victim led the police to the suspect’s shack. Police found him in a deep slumber. He was arrested and has been charged with kidnapping,” Manatha said. Butterworth police station Commander and acting Butterworth cluster commander Colonel Sipho Hokwana praised his officials for acting swiftly and for their visibility, which had led to the arrest.

New classrooms a relief for Putuma

BABALWA NDLANYA EASTERN Cape Roads and Public Works MEC Thandiswa Marawu handed over three prefabricated classrooms to the Putuma Junior Secondary School in Elliotdale last week. The school, with more than 1 000 pupils, had been faced with congestion in classrooms. The MEC also issued certificates to 20 pupils who had successfully completed the Accelerated Professional and Trade Competency Development Programme. Pupils from Putuma also received toiletries from the department. Marawu said her department had intervened and assisted after seeing the conditions under which the pupils were being taught. “A team of artisans assembled these classrooms using leftover

material from other department projects. The department also painted and beautified the entire school,” Marawu said. She said they did not have the budget for building schools, but used leftover material from other projects. “We are looking forward to building seven classrooms here at Putuma.” She said a request had been made by AmaXhosa King Zwelonke Sigcau after he saw that the school had a shortage of classrooms. This school won the South African School Choral Eisteddfod. Sigcau said there were still a number of mud schools around the Elliotdale area, but he was proud that Marawu had managed to rescue the pupils of Putuma. The principal of the school, Babalwa Mtumtum, said she was grateful as it was hard for teachers to watch pupils sitting on the grass while writing their exams because of a shortage of classrooms. “Lots of parents send their children to our school because of the high talent which is here. We have pupils who come from far away because our school excels in music and other activities.” Mtumtum said the classrooms would improve the situation they were facing. She said that due to high demand they used to enrol 1 650 pupils, but had been forced to reduce the number to 1 000 this year because of the space problem.

Winter School a huge success REPORTER WHAT is better than applying what you’ve learnt in a practical manner? This was the experience of pupils who attended the Nelson Mandela Museum’s Winter School programme. The participants from the OR Tambo region converged at the Nelson Mandela Museum Youth and Heritage Centre to be inspired and to be creative in their thinking. The participants of the visual art group got the opportunity last Tuesday and Thursday to put theory into practice. They took on the task of beautifying a needy rural preschool called Emilley Kiddies in Qunu. The preschool is at the Thusong Centre in Qunu close to former President Nelson Mandela’s residence. The notion behind beautifying the preschool was to bring joy and happiness among children through visual artwork. The Winter School also taught subjects such as poetry and creative writing, music and dance, drama and storytelling as well as oral history and research. Participants challenged each other with discussions and debates that led to the development of a concept for presentations held on Friday. The participants came from the KSD, Ingquza Hill, Mhlontlo, Port St Johns and Nyandeni municipalities.

Intonjane portrayed in sculptures AN art exhibition that portrays the sacred Xhosa ritual Intonjane was a hit at this year’s Grahamstown National Arts Festival which ended last week. Intonjane is aimed at preparing young girls for womanhood and is captured in 52 ceramic sculptures by Eastern Cape artist Siziwe Sotewu. “My exhibition focuses on the developmental stages of a girl from infancy right through to the events leading up to the Intonjane custom of umgidi (graduation ceremony).” She said the work, titled The Bulges: African girl’s natural endowments, was also a social commentary on the moral decay that continues to “eat away at the very core of womanhood”. “The moral degeneration of our young women has reached crisis level and this is an issue that needs to be dealt with immediately. Intonjane was and still is one of those very important mechanisms we as Xhosa people use to teach our girls a good moral and value system, self-respect and self-worth.” Sotewu’s work formed part of the Department

of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture’s visual art exhibition in Grahamstown. “It was my first time to show my work in Grahamstown and I am very happy about that in such a way that I am looking forward to attending again. This was a great opportunity for me really because lot of people saw my work,” Sotewu said. Sotewu, from Cumakala near Lady Frere, is also a lecturer and fine arts lab asssitant at the Walter Sisulu University. The collection was developed in 2012 as the practical aspect of her thesis for her master’s degree in visual arts at Unisa. “After the department saw my submission, it was very impressed and wasted no time in asking me to be part of its exhibition for this year’s festival.” Sotewu meticulously deconstructs the diverse strata of Intonjane into three stages: childhood, entitled Flowers at school; girlhood, entitled Ukutshila and womanhood, under the title The bulges. – REPORTER

Moving send-off for Mthatha Bucks

SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE

THE Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture in the OR Tambo region hosted a moving send-off ceremony for the Mthatha Bucks football club at the Mthatha Stadium at the weekend. Bucks managed to win most of their games and became champions of the second division last season. The Mthatha outfit is going to represent the province in the national play-offs for the first division in Kimberley from July 20 to 26. The send-off was attended by the team’s top management, officials for sport fraternity in the region, players, legends of the club and supporters. Addressing the audience, OR Tambo senior manager in the department of sport, Mike Sodo, said the players must go there and fight to bring home the victory. He said the department in the OR Tambo region was fully behind the players and wished them all the best. If they succeeded in their campaign to play in the first division, sport would be improved in OR Tambo. “I see bright stars who are going to

shine in these play-offs. Do what is best because we want to see you in top flight and your achievement will lift up football in the area. “You must do away with other things and focus on what you need to achieve in those play-offs. You must know that this region is at stake. We need to do more than other people. “You are the badges of honour to us so give it all to achieve the goal of lifting the flag of this region. Go to the battle knowing that all our hopes are with you and we are hoping that God will guide you and bring something that can make us smile back at home,” Sodo said. The owner of the team, Simthembile Ntlantsana, expressed his gratitude for the support of the department. “What they did was motivational for the players and technical team. We are hoping to bring back something which will make this region happier,” he said. The department has assisted the club with financial support for accommodation for the team during the play-offs. The general manager of the team, Doctor Tukute, said they were expecting a win and nothing else.
