Entrepreneurial vision Leburu wins award

‘I think the amount of money I won, is enough to start the project. I will be using bicycles and a scooter in the first eight months of the business until I start breaking through. I am going to use the money I won strictly on business.” – Faith Leburu

} Sidwell Guduka BARELY a year after starting her business, an entrepreneur from the Free State walked away with the enterPRIZE Job Creation Challenge award at a ceremony held at the President Hotel in Bloemfontein on Thursday night. Faith Leburu (24) of Bloemfontein received the award, together with a first-prize money reward of R125 000, after starting a company, Med-deliver, that will be specialising in delivering medication to government hospitals in an innovative way. “I feel really blessed to win the social enterprise category, because I am very passionate about helping society and also creating a sustainable enterprise. “That is why I decided to combine social factors into social entrepreneurship,” Leburu told Express. “I started the company knowing that it would be sustainable. “I do not want to depend on government or corporate funding. This is a self-sustaining project. “I am very happy that I won this award. I hope that from now on I am going to be changing lives, no matter how small the change, because it doesn’t matter how little can be done, every bit counts – especially when you work with society,” she said. Leburu said that through determination and hard work, small businesses can overcome the many obstacles faced in the initial stages.

money I won strictly on business.” The 2013 Free State enterPRIZE Job Creation Challenge, which was officially launched on 27 February by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) – in partnership

with the Flanders International Cooporation Agency (Fica), the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs (Detea) and the Small Enterprise Development Agency

(Seda) – honoured 42 entrepreneurs in 14 different categories. Jens Dyring Christensen, ILO chief technical advisor, said: “One of the important means to address the very high levels of unemployment in the province is through the stimulation of entrepreneurship and innovation allowing potential and existing entrepreneurs to identify and exploit new market opportu- nities, thereby creating more economic growth. “We plan for this competition to become an annual event and that more entrepreneurs in the years to come will be inspired and challenged to find ways to create more jobs in the province.” According to the organisers of the event, 549 entries were received from Free State entrepreneurs. Some of the winners were from as far afield as Qwaqwa, Ficksburg, Kroonstad and Parys.

Motivating theatre visits Bfn ON Friday, 7 June, the Beauty Express, a mobile theatre that is touring Southern Africa will stop in Bloemfontein at the Kenworth Shopping Centre in Rocklands. Well-respected TV personality Noeleen Maholwana-Sangqu of 3 Talk fame, will be on board as the confidence ambassador and will give an inspirational talk to local women about achieving success through confidence. The Beauty Express, an Avroy Shlain Cosmetics initiative, has been on the road since 25 May, when it commenced

its trip in Cape Town. From Cape Town, it stopped at Worcester, George, Port Elizabeth, East London, Butterworth, Umtata and Port Shepstone. On Monday it stopped at Umlazi and Durban before moving on to Pietermaritzburg, Ladysmith, Qwaqwa and Maseru before entering the Free State. Noeleen and a team of Avroy Shlain consultants share their life and business lessons with thousands of women at each stop. After 40 successful years in business, the cosmetics company wants to give back to

the very people that have made it and its quality products what they are today. Celebrating consumers are invited to visit the Beauty Express that will be stationed at the Kenworth Shopping Centre from 11:00 to 13:00 where they can also receive makeovers and beauty advice. “We have signed Noeleen up as our confidence ambassador for 2013,” says Justin Hewett, Avroy Shlain Cosmetics managing director. “Noeleen epitomises the empowered, self-respecting and successful woman

that forms the backbone of our direct sales company. It is ‘get up and go women’ like Noeleen who are motivated by an entrepreneurial spirit, that have been enormously successful in making Avroy Shlain Cosmetics what it is today.” The selling of cosmetics is the tool, but the growth of people is the company’s objective, says Hewett. “Our vision over the past 40 years has been to empower thousands of women in Southern Africa by creating a quality range of skin care and beauty products that can be sold through a direct selling method where impressive earnings can be reached. “With the Beauty Express operational during our birthday celebrations, we will visit all quarters of South Africa and make people aware of what life changing opportunities Avroy Shlain offers.” After traversing all nine South African provinces as well as Gaborone, the Beauty Express will finally come to a halt back in Cape Town on Monday, June 24.

Girls empowered to be leaders } Sidwell Guduka IN an effort to empower children, the office of the Public Protector in the Free State hosted 20 pupils from different schools in Mangaung, Bloemfontein, who on Thursday participated in the annual Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day Campaign where the aim was to empower these learners. The learners were of Tsoseletso High School, Kaelang Secondary School, Kagisho Comprehensive School and Hodisa Technical School. The event, initiated by the cellphone giant 11 years ago, aims to inspire girls through exposing them to a wide range of career opportunities. It also recognises the need to provide learners with the ideal opportunity to assist them in making informed decisions enabling them to become future leaders. The theme underlining this year’s campaign was Empower a Girl, Empower a Nation. “We are here to celebrate the day with the girls and to encourage them to be the best that they can be. “We feel that the girls’ life is very special to us. We believe that they are the future mothers of the nation. We also believe that by empowering them, we are empowering the nation,” Wiaan Vermaak, Cell C managing executive in the Central Region, told Express. “The campaign has been very successful over the years. We are extremely happy about the support we receive from the government, businesses and the public in general. The public is very

As for the criteria they use to choose girls to participate

in the campaign, he explained that they went to local schools and selected girls who were available on the day. “These are usually gr. 11 and gr. 12 students we feel are going to enter the business sphere in a very short period of time,” he explained. Jackie Ntshingila, the Free State’s provincial manager of Seda, said: “As Seda we have been participating in the campaign for the past three

years. We did it with all the branches last year and it was very successful. “So when Cell C approached us to say they have this kind of thing happening in Bloemfontein today, we felt we better take it on with

them, because it is a great initiative. We really feel blessed to have been part of this, because when you educate a girl or empower her you definitely empower a nation. “It is so important to Seda to develop and empower all

girls in South Africa. “We believe that the Take a Girl Child to Work Campaign is one of those initiatives which are very critical in ensuring that girls become the leaders of tomorrow,” Ntshingila concluded.

Bullet hits Bfn photographer } Sidwell Guduka A WELL-KNOWN Bloemfontein photographer was shot in the line of duty last week. Motshwari Mofokeng (25) of Freedom Square was injured after a Red Ants security guard had fired a INJURED: Motswari rubber bullet, which Mofokeng. hit Mofokeng below the right shoulder, on Wednesday. The incident occurred in the Johannesburg CBD while Mofokeng was covering an eviction of illegal residents living in a building once used as a factory in the city. “At first I thought it was a stone, but thought this was impossible because I was facing the Red Ants, not the demonstrators. After about five minutes I started feeling a lot of pain,” Mofokeng told Express. “The evictees were emotional because alternative arrangements for accommodation had not been made. But my pain was physical. I had been shot in the chest, but (even) before that, I had been slapped twice. The guard had walked away from me as the pain intensified,” he said. Johannesburg Central Police spokesperson, WO Qoli Mbele, said a case of attempted murder had been opened but the court had withdrawn charges against the 26-year-old suspect.



The Gospel more than a story or doctrine } Elder Jonathan B Ndlovu WE do not have to go to the psychologist or the doctor or the scientist or sociologist to get the answer to the question: What is the Gospel? There is but one place to turn to – the Living Word of God, the Holy Bible. For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the Power of God unto salvation to every one who believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek (Rom. 1:16). Paul might have described the Gospel as being “Good News”, a “doctrine”, a “creed’ or “theory”

or a story or a number of other things, but He did not use any of these definitions. Instead, he declared it to be the “Power of God”. Psalm 62:11 says: I . . .have heard this that power belonged unto God. Let us hear another scripture:

“and she will bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name Jesus; for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matt. 1:21). Scripture is to be compared with scripture. Truth once laid down in the Word of God, do not need to be repeated in just the same words again. Jesus is the heart of the Gospel and the power of God unto salvation from sin. The rest is but a theory, or a story, or a doctrine or such like. As power belongs to Christ (Ps. 62:11), He says: I and my Father are one. (John 10:30). They are associated on equal

terms. With this tremendous power it says: I was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and with Him, this world was called into existence and which now is employed to save the repentant from sin. Therefore redemption is creation repeated “who are dead in trespasses and sins”. (Eph. 2:1) “and the man in Christ is a new creation.” (2 Cor. 5:17) When He created man in the beginning, it is said, and the Lord formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and

man became a living soul (Gen. 2:7). The Gospel is the way in which God exerts His power for salvation. Wherever the Gospel finds believing hearts, it is a divine power by which all the obstacles to man’s redemption are removed. Paul is stating a fact that he knows to be true from his own experience. He has felt this “Power of God” in his life. . . .for the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness: but unto which are saved, it is the Power of God. (1 Cor. 1:48). ) Part two of this article will be published next week.





I will not be a victim any longer GETTING into university was supposed to be my big break. It was supposed to be my only shot at success, or so I thought. Almost a year ago, on 28 June, this dream of success was shattered when I was raped. As usual, I took a taxi from downtown Bloemfontein to Brandwag. I sat in the front seat. I knew the driver and had spoken to him a couple of times. So when he asked me if I could go to Naval Hill with him because he wanted to fetch some people, I didn’t mind. He parked at an old building there and he started kissing me. I told him to stop or I would call the cops. I dialled 10111 and that’s when he got mad and threatened to break my phone. He told me to choose between walking back and sleeping with him. I

chose to walk. As I was about to get out of the car he pulled my weave and strangled me. I tried so hard to fight him off, but he overpowered me. He raped me and I let him get away with it. For months I pretended nothing had happened until I finally had the guts to tell someone. I missed a lot of classes and I failed. This year I was told to get my act together or leave the uni-

versity. So far I haven’t been able to improve my grades. So, I guess I’ll have to do the walk of shame next year. Ever since that day, my life has been turned upside down after I had been granted a bursary by the Free State Department of Education and lost it because I had failed. I used to think keeping quiet about the rape was going to make things easy for me. It hasn’t. I had an anxiety attack not so long ago. The stress is slowly tearing me apart. I have constant headaches and I can’t stop crying. To make things worse I have become so bitter and angry. If only I could do things differently I would give 100% in everything I do. I realise now that I have let that dog win and what tears me apart the most is the realisation that my grandmother

might never see me graduate from the University of the Free State. After all my hard work all my dreams might never come true. I allowed myself to be a victim. If I knew then what I know now, that what happened was not my fault and that he should pay for what he did, I would have reported the case. I can’t describe what I am going through. Only someone who has walked in my shoes will understand what it feels like. ) Mpho is a second-year Political Science student at the University of the Free State.

Look out for swindlers THE Department of Labour warns employers not to fall prey to criminals visiting businesses under the guise of being labour officials with the aim of swindling them. This comes after three individuals, two women and a man of Indian origin, were reported to be visiting employers in the Zastron and Wepener areas and threatened to close down businesses if employers did not buy their “labour legislation charts” such as the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA), Employment Equity Act (EEA) and Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). “The Department of Labour does not sell any legislation or documents about labour laws to members of the public. “If employers need these documents, they should contact their nearest offices of the department. Employers should be wary of any person who visits their workplace

under the name of the department and demand some form of identification. For further confirmation an employer can call the office to verify if indeed the person works for the department,” said Marsha Bronkhorst, the chief director for provincial operations. There has been a string of reports around the province about individuals, some posing as labour inspectors, visiting workplaces conducting inspections or selling labour legislation with the aim of robbing unsuspecting employers. The Department of Labour inspectors are the only officials who are allowed to carry out labour inspections and will do so by prior arrangement. They will be able to identify themselves and they are never allowed to receive any money from employers. Any suspicious individual conduct should be reported to the South African Police Services (SAPS).



Is project still viable? PETER FREWIN, Democratic Alliance member of the Free State legislature, writes: IT is of great concern to me that the building at the Gariep Dam Fish Breeding Project is still empty and that there is virtually no sign of activity here. This project has been in the making for years and has still not delivered on any jobs. I believe there is still a group of Chinese waiting here to show the people how to operate this station and that there are people from China waiting to fly

out to assist with this operation. How much longer must they wait? I would like to know what the current situation is regarding this project and will it be in operation? I am also interested in knowing how many people will be employed here and whether the project is still regarded as financially viable.

Department refutes allegations about exam results IN response to various media reports on the delay in the release of Engineering Studies results, the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) wishes to rectify the misconceptions and incorrect facts being reported. The preliminary investigation into the Engineering Studies irregularities has identified 211 candidates linked to irregularities out of the total of 144 752 candidates who wrote the first

trimester examinations. The actions taken and delay in the release of Engineering Studies results were taken to protect the integrity of the national examination system, as well as the efforts of the 144 541 candidates who sat and wrote this examination and legitimacy of qualifications being awarded in the Further Education and Training (FET) sector. These actions by the department

shows the seriousness and relevance of the FET college sector within the postschool education and training system, and the role this sector has to play in providing the requisite skills required by the economy. It is therefore imperative that all stakeholders continue to work together and inspire confidence in a system that is designed to deliver the scarce skills needed by the economy and recognises FET

colleges as institutions of first choice particularly for young people. The position of the department is that no student should be denied access to academic programmes due to the delay in the release of results and similarly, those students who meet the financial and academic eligibility criteria for financial aid through NSFAS. Colleges have been assisting Engineering Studies students affected by the late release of results to register on the next level for trimester 2. The department is monitoring the registration of trimester 2 students and providing assistance where required. In relation to the alleged 25% downward adjustment, it is the responsibility of the department and Umalusi to accurately reflect the performance of each candidate and the department refutes allegations made in some media reports that there had been a 25% downward adjustment in the marks of students as a consequence of the reported irregularities. The department wishes to reiterate that it views these irregularities in a serious light and criminal in nature, and will do everything within its power to safeguard the integrity of the national examination system by holding individuals accountable and working closely with the South African Police Service (SAPS) to identify perpetrators. The DHET appeals to the public and students to actively contribute to its efforts to eradicate this scourge.

Part of games to find strongest FET teams MOTHEO FET COLLEGE STUDENTS participated in various sporting codes in the 2013 Ball Games hosted at Welkom High in Welkom on 25 May.

The rugby team went on to lose to Goldfields in a nasty rugby match. The chess team easily made their way to victory which saw four members out of six being selected to participate in the national tournament to be held in Limpopo later this year.

Soldiers hone their skills with exercise } Sidwell Guduka AS many as 75 soldiers participated in Exercise Chest of Steel Five in the Free State. The event was held at the Gen. De Wet Training Arena, De Brug, just outside Bloemfontein. It ran for two weeks. Lt Col William Jansen, the commanding officer of 1 SA Tank Regiment, said the scenario they used in the excercise was fictitious and was based on a certain country somewhere in Africa. “The Exercise Chest of Steel Five is a continuation excercise whereby we specially focus on the capabilities of the staff officers to do planning on the brigate level. It has been very successful in the past four years,” Jansen told Express. “This exercise is an initiative of the South African Armour Formation headquarters. “It is the fifth exercise that we are executing. We started off with the convertional scenario and gradually we reduced the convertional scenario to a peace-keeping scenario. “This particular Excercise Chest of Steel Five is based on peace enforcement, in UN terms a Chapter 7 mission,” he explained. “We have different levels whereby we do planning on a

LT COL WILLIAM JANSEN military strategic level, operational level, and obviously, on the tactical level. The brigade is currently on the tactical level where we do that planning.” Jansen said most of their members that participated in the Exercise Chest of Steel Five were learners on the reg-

imental commanders course. “We introduced soldiers to the new computers. We managed to use all the moves well. Specialists played a pivotal role in making this exercise a great success.” He further said that they did the command post exercises with the tank units.

Marathon experience amazing } Rufus Botha DAVID KOLOANE, a wellknown former long-distance athlete from Bloemfontein and currently administrator and road race referee for Athletics Free State (AFS), scored a rare distinction on Sunday. Koloane was called up by the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) to officiate at the 88th Comrades Marathon from Durban to Pietermaritzburg. The Comrades (86 km) is the biggest ultra-marathon in the world and more than 15 000 starters lined up to tackle this race. Koloane was not only called up as a referee, he did duty as referee for the first ten men (gold medallists) and that is something to write home about for his first outing as a Comrades referee. “Although I was nervous, it was one the most satisfying experiences of my life. “It was amazing to experience how people from a different culture, race and country could become comrades during the time they spent on the road and afterwards,” Koloane told Express after the race. He said he had been on duty at the start of the race to ensure that everything was ready for the frontrunners to start without any problems. “From there it was a drive to the finish where I had to ensure that the top ten guys were adhering to all the rules and regulations. “Runners in the race run and/or finish with different kinds of advertisement ban-

‘‘Although I was nervous, it was one the most satisfying experiences of my life. It was amazing to experience how people from a different culture, race and country could become comrades during the time they spent on the road and afterwards.” – Koloane. ners, of which some may offend other athletes, spectators and TV viewers. And this must be addressed. I’ll obviously discuss this in a post-race meeting. “I would suggest that no offending religious, cultural and/or political banners should be allowed at the race,” he added. Koloane is a former South African junior 3 000 m steeplechase champion and has been involved in athletics administration for more than a decade and a half. He possesses a level 2 technical official certificate and has been the manager of the Transnet relay team which won the prestigious JP Morgan Corporate Relay in New York several times, to mention only a few of this former Navalsig High School hostel head boy’s achievements. Koloane is currently employed by Transnet in their Human Resources Department.
