Confusion over land Premier now denies giving nature reserve to church } Selloane Khalane and Paddy Harper FREE STATE premier Ace Magashule giveth – and he taketh away. Ten days ago, Magashule told congregants of the Tyrannus Apostolic Church – one of the country’s biggest – that they now “owned” land in Bethlehem. Magashule was speaking to a packed Botshabelo Stadium during a church service. The church has been trying to secure the Wolhuterskop Nature Reserve in Bethlehem as a permanent home and has already been given permission by the Dihlabeng Municipality to use this site for services. Magashule’s rapturously received statement – which Express’s parent paper Volksblad witnessed last Sunday – suggested the church’s battle was at an end. But now he has backtracked, telling sister publication City Press over the weekend that he was merely announcing the “arrangement” that allowed the church to use the reserve for its services. Magashule said: “They have been requesting to use the land. I was told that, in my absence, there is a process to let them use it while we are looking at whether it is possible to finally give them the land as a church. “There isn’t anything tangible that has been signed. There will be further discussions among all spheres of government. They don’t want it for free. I don’t understand what the big fuss is about.” He said part of the land was

This church deals with issues of women abuse and poverty. We are in partnership with not only them but the Zion Christian Church, the Muslims and the Methodists.” He confirmed making the announcement last Sunday, but said: “I simply announced the ar-

Any land disposal has to come to me as premier.” Dihlabeng Mayor Tjhetane Mofokeng said he was not aware of any ownership deal with the Tyrannus Apostolic Church. “I can neither confirm nor deny whether the municipality has sold the land to the church,” said Mofokeng. “I didn’t attend the church event

(last Sunday).” Magashule, a number of Free State MECs and Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba were among those who attended the event, which formed part of the church’s three-day youth conference.

New system introduced } Lesego Ditheko A NEW parking system is now in operation in Bloemfontein’s central business district. Announced by Mangaung metro mayor Thabo Manyoni on 24 July, the system’s brightly coloured parking marshals have already started working at the beginning of this month. Manyoni said he expected the system to assist the city in reducing crime and theft from parked vehicles and to eliminate informal parking attendants who often harassed motorists. An added benefit, Manyoni said, was the expected increase in free traffic flow in the CBD. Galebotsa Seekoei and Tebogo Mphatseng are two such marshals who operate in Charlotte Maxeke and St Andrew Street. The pair told Express that before the new system had been introduced, they had already spent 13 years working as parking marshals in the Bloemfontein CBD. “At times over the years we would make just enough in a day for the taxi ride home,” Mphatseng said. He said given the fact that they would now be receiving a salary, they foresaw their lives changing for the better. “When it comes to motorists, some are cooperative, while some display a negative attitude towards us. “We’ll now be getting salaries at the end of the month and thus will be able to provide for our families,” Galebotsa said. Mphatseng said he was excited to be one of the people who had been recognised by the municipality after doing what he had

working for the municipality, but I’ll also be able to put food on the table for my family,” Mphatseng said.

Motorist Molehe Mosala said he would cooperate with the marshals. “The system is working. It

looks professional and I believe my car will be safer compared to before the system was introduced, as

the previous marshals used to break into our cars and nobody could be held accountable,” Molehe told Express. When a motorist parks their vehicle, the licence plate will be scanned and when the motorist leaves, it will be scanned again and will automatically count the time. Motorists can insist on a receipt. Qondile Khedama, spokesperson for the Mangaung Metro, advised motorists to adhere to the new traffic regulations in the city. ) According to the municipality the system is due to be rolled out to Botshabelo and Thaba Nchu soon.

Gorgeous Keri Wilson makes her debut at Macufe } Sidwell Guduka TOP American acts Keri Hilson and Anthony Hamilton will form part of this year’s Macufe line-up.

Her debut performance at Macufe will be on 11 October at the Divas Concert in the Dome at the Old Grey’s sports grounds. She will be sharing the stage with Zonke, Thandiswa Mazwai and the rising Sama winner, Maleh.

Other top-notch South African musos such as Hugh Masekela and Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse have been confirmed for the mother of all festivals. Meanwhile, the Civic Theatre will be buzzing and alive with one of the biggest productions in this year’s Macufe. The internationally acclaimed and long-running musical stage play Umoja – The Spirit of Togetherness – will be staged from 7 to 11 October at the Civic. Macufe will not be complete without the daily craft market, held during the course of the festival, at the corner of Markgraaf and Elizabeth Streets in Bloemfontein.

‘Woza Albert!’ at André Huguenet } Sidwell Guduka PACOFS, in collaboration with the Market Theatre, brings the celebrated production Woza Albert! to the André Huguenet Theatre from 20 to 24 August as part of the Market Theatre’s country-wide tour of regional venues, thanks to the Department of Arts and Culture’s Mzanzi Golden Economy funding. “I am delighted that the department has made it possible for the Market Theatre to tour this amazing production. This is reminiscent of an era in which productions were staged in church halls, school halls and community centres and it allows communities to engage with theatre in their spaces,” Annabell Lebethe, CEO of the Market Theatre Foundation, told Express. “Woza Albert! is one of the plays for which South African theatre is best known internationally. “Its physical style of storytelling is to inspire and influence theatre companies around the world, and it is one of the best examples that define South African theatre in all its vibrancy, innovation and humanity,” Lethebe said. “This celebrated and much-loved South African classic asks what would happen if Jesus Christ (Morena) came back to South Africa during apartheid. “This lively satire of the absurdities of apartheid provides a showcase for the talents of two dexterous actors, who play a range of ordinary characters on the street,” she explained. Written by Percy Mtwa, Mbongeni Ngema and Barney Simon, the first part of the play sets the scene, attacking the pass laws that prevented black South Africans from moving and working freely. Similarly, it sketches in a few short minutes the semi-slavery that was imposed on manual workers by bosses who could fire them if they got too independent. The second half of the play becomes considerably darker and more resonant. Now Jesus is in the country and his life is replayed in the apartheid context. He is first welcomed then imprisoned. When he is taken to Robben Island, his escape is easy as He walks back across the bay to Cape Town. This retelling of a familiar story in a new context becomes devastating by the end, shedding light on both the Bible and apartheid South Africa. Cast members of the play are wellknown Mncedisi Baldwin Shabangu and Peter Mashigo.

STARRING: Mncedisi Baldwin Shabangu and Peter Mashigo. The show is a must-attend to all theatre lovers as it is very educational. It is directed by Prince Lamla. Bookings are made through Pacofs. Tickets range between R30 (pensioners and learners) and R60. Call Pacofs on 051-447-7772.

ANGRY parents of learners of the Tjhebelopele Combined School in Phase 6, Bloemfontein, have demanded that the principal, Charlton Sondiyazi, resign. Photo: Sidwell Guduka

} Palesa Motshabi

TODAY is D-day and marks exactly two weeks since angry parents of learners of the Tjhebelopele Combined School in Phase 6, Bloemfontein, had threatened to keep their children from school unless the principal was removed permanently. The parents gave the principal, Charlton Sondiyazi, a fortnight to leave the school after they had staged a protest at the school. Police were called to the scene and the parents dispersed peacefully. At the beginning of the year Express published a story about Sondiyazi who had been accused by some teachers, parents and school governing body members of running the school in a dictatorial manner. Although an investigation was launched into the matter after the story had first been published in February, the department told Express on Monday that the investigation had not been concluded yet. One of the parents Express spoke to on the scene said it was not only the parents who disliked the principal, but the learners too. “My daughter is in gr. R and already she hates the principal because he swears at them,” said the mother who wished to remain anonymous for fear of her child being victimised. According to the parents, when they requested to have a meeting with Sondiyazi, he had told them to leave his school premises because ‘his’ school yard was not Hoffman Square in the Bloemfontein CBD. “We don’t want Sondiyazi here. He said he would bewitch us as parents and our kids by throwing lightening at us. He must go or we’ll take our kids out of this school,” Ditsietsi Botsane, one of the parents, said. Angry parents also told Express the principal demanded R2 every Friday from the children irrespective of whether they (the parents) worked or not. “We don’t even know what the R2 is for because the classrooms are dirty,” another parent said. When asked when last a parents’ meeting was held at the school, the parents told Express that no parents’ meetings had been held after Sondiyazi had become principal. They also said they had thus far only received their children’s March school reports. Howard Ndaba, Free State Education Department spokesperson, said learners had received their reports late because of a faulty computer system. It had taken longer than anticipated to reboot the system and reload the learners’ information. “The department can confirm the principal, Sondiyazi, has been cross-transferred with a principal of the Nzame Primary School,” Ndaba said. Asked about the saga at a different event, Tate Makgoe, Free State Education MEC, advised the parents to write a letter to him directly detailing the situation. Makgoe said he had not been aware of the situation.

Equality in education crucial for all } Flora Teckie DESPITE visible improvements in the last few decades to ensure equal education and other rights for the girl-child, various forms of discrimination against girls still persist. Currently over 120 million children do not have access to basic education. Of these approximately 60% are girls. By age 18, girls would have received an average of 4,4 years less education than boys. Development and education of every child, their personality, talents, mental and physical abilities and spiritual qualities to their fullest potential, is the right of every child.

Education of girls is not only a human right. It is also in the best interests of society as a whole. According to a statement from the Universal House of Justice, the governing council of the Bahá’í international community: “The cause of universal education . . . deserves the utmost support that the governments of the world can lend it. For ignorance is indisputably the principal reason for the decline and fall of peoples and the perpetuation of prejudice. No nation can achieve success unless education is accorded all its citizens. “The decision-making agencies involved would do well to consider

giving first priority to the education of women and girls, since it is through educated mothers that the benefits of knowledge can be most effectively and rapidly diffused throughout society.” As girls and boys are equal in intellectual capacity and in potential to serve humanity, girls and boys should study the same curriculum. The way should be open for women and girls to enter all spheres of human endeavour, including the arts and sciences, agriculture, commerce, industry and the affairs of state. There is no natural limit on women’s abilities. Girls must be educated spiritually,

emotionally and intellectually because a mother cannot pass on what she does not have. A child needs a nurturing environment and wise guidance particularly in the first years of life in order to develop sound character and a well-trained mind. As the Bahá’í Writings state: “If the mother is educated then her children will be well taught. When the mother is wise, then will the children be led into the path of wisdom. If the mother be religious she will show her children how they should love God. “If the mother is moral she guides her little ones into the ways of up-

rightness. Divine justice demands that the rights of both sexes should be equally respected since neither is superior to the other in the eyes of heaven. Dignity before God depends, not on sex, but on purity and luminosity of heart.” Our challenge today is how to create the conditions in which girls can develop to their full potential. The creation of such conditions will involve not only deliberate attempts to change in various structures of society, but, equally important, in the transformation of individuals For feedback call 082-773-8301 or send an e-mail to mangaung@bahailsa.org.za.

THE first major steps towards a paperless lecture environment for the School of Medicine at the University of the Free State (UFS) was launched last month with the presentation of laptops to all first-year medical students. The aim is to have the entire undergraduate Medical programme computer-driven within a few years and to get rid of paper in the classroom. Prof. Pieter Nel, programme director: Health Sciences at the school in the Faculty of Health Sciences, said: “As far as we know, this action is the first of its kind in any medical school in South Africa whereby an entire class are supplied with computers for this purpose. “We also have no knowledge of anything similar in any programme within any other faculty at any university in South Africa.” All first-year medical students received laptops. The UFS is facilitating the process to pro-

vide students with computer access via their own laptops. “The reason for this is that the undergraduate health sciences programme will be completely computerised from now on. Students will therefore utilise their laptops in all their contact sessions.” The entire building where teaching takes place is equipped with Wi-Fi. The students buy the laptops at a much lower cost than the commercial price. Nel said the printing costs of study material during a student’s undergraduate study years could amount to as much as R5 000. In future, first-year students will receive laptops, computerising the entire undergraduate health sciences programme within a few years, Nel said. During the presentation of the first laptops, Prof. Gert van Zyl, dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, referred to this action as a big step forward in modernising the undergraduate training of medical students in the faculty.

Unite against crime

ADV. SEPHIRI MOSHODI, Free State CPF chairperson: AS the Free State Community Policing Forum (CPF) we wish to join Pres. Jacob Zuma, the premier of the Free State and the entire South African Police Service (SAPS) management in condemning in the strongest terms the scourge of crime happening in our communities. The killing of vulnerable, defenceless elderly people and women and children needs to be dealt with head-on and we call upon all the people of the Free State to heed the clarion call by the premier Ace Magashule and Butana Khompela, MEC for Police, Roads and Transport, in exposing these ruthless criminal elements that are hell bent on hijacking our townships and streets through the victimisation of innocent communities. The emergence of gangsters in areas such as Botshabelo, Kutlwanong, Meloding and Thaba Nchu cannot be left unchallenged. The Free State CPF calls upon all our communities to join CPF structures in their localities so as to make it difficult for criminals to operate. The recent merciless killings, rapes and molestation of the elderly, women and children must be confronted with the might that displays a high level of public participation in all CPF-related activities in the Free State. The recently held Provincial Crime Prevention Summit graced by Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa and national police commissioner, Gen. Riah Phiyega, as well as Magashule and his entire cabinet, demonstrates the seriousness with which the government views crime in our country. The launching of the Provincial Crime Prevention Strategy in the Free State by Magashule in July is a further indication of how serious and determined the Free State government is in tackling issues relating to crime in the province. The mere presence of both Maggie Sotyu, the deputy minister of Police, and Phiyega serves as a further demonstration on the part of the national government and its strategic stakeholders that fighting crime in partnership is the most viable strategy to eradicate crime in our communities and neighbourhoods. The Free State CPF therefore calls and extends a hand of invitation to all our traditional leaders, church leaders and the business community to join government in the fight against crime and also condemns the recent killing of Teboho Kapoko at an initiation school in Kutlwanong, Odendaalsrus. Those who wish to work for a safer, crimefree environment in the Free State are urged to visit their nearest police station to enquire about CPF-related activities including its programmes and to obtain information about joining the CPF.

Batho women take trophies in tournament A WOMEN’S 7’S RUGBY TOURNAMENT was recently held on the campus of the Central University of Technology (CUT), Free State, in Bloemfontein. The event was organised by secondyear Sports Management students with the aim of making the tournament an annual event. The first game of the double round robin kicked off at 09:35.

The final between Batho and the CUT was played at 13:00. The Batho Women’s Rugby Team trumped the CUT in this match with a fine display of skills, experience and excellent on-field communication. Batho also produced the Player of the Tournament with Cia Khetse walking away with this accolade. The final was followed by an awards

ceremony. The awards were presented by Willien Fourie, programme head of the School of Tourism, Hospitality and Sport: Sport Academy, who emphasized how encouraging it was to see women excelling in a traditionally male-dominated sport. The tournament forms part of the Sports Management students’ practical learning component.

Boost for FS schools soccer

} Sidwell Guduka

THE Chevrolet Ute Force last week announced its partnership with Dreamfields, a soccer development project focused on uplifting communities across South Africa. As part of their marriage, the Indestructible Spirit Project was born and it was officially launched at Petrusburg and Botshabelo on Tuesday and Thursday respectively. Altogether 20 schools, 300 primary school pupils in gr. 4 to 7 and 35 teachers will benefit from this project inspired by the global One World Futbol Campaign. “We believe that soccer is a team sport and that teams build better schools. Our dream is to provide resources for playing soccer in townships and rural schools across South Africa,” John Perlman, radio personality and Dreamfields founder, said. The AJC Jooste Combined School in Petrusburg will be home to a 13school Intra Soccer League that will see 160 boys and girls from the local community participating in regular training sessions and matches. Further support will be provided by an additional nine teachers being part of a soccer coach training course.

This training will enable them to mentor and groom the young players to become South Africa’s future soccer champions and leaders. The second leg of the project included the support of the 8-school, 210-pupil Intra Soccer League managed from the Phano Intermediate School in Botshabelo. “It is essential that the project is 100% sustainable and supported by the local community. The purpose of the Chevrolet Ute Force initiative is to lend assistance and build communities via youth focused projects – they are after all the future leaders, soccer champions and change-makers of our country,” Tim Hendon, brand manager of Chevrolet SA, said. Perlman said he believed that sport helped create better schools and build stronger communities. “The schools that will be home to the two leagues have principals who are truly committed to providing a nurturing environment for their pupils to learn and play in spite of the budgetary constraints they face,” reiterated Perlman. Meanwhile, the budding sports stars from both leagues were given access to donate soccer kits such as soccer balls, boots, clothing and training equipment to their communities.
