People vs growth Drastic measures needed to deliver basic services

apid expansion and a continuous influx of people into Polokwane puts the City of Stars under tremendous pressure in terms of basic services to be delivered. The already high demand for services from the existing population as well as temporary contractors involved in various

developments in the city is exacerbated by the continuous influx of immigrants. Polokwane Municipality has confirmed that the city’s economic growth is not consistent with the population growth. “We may not say the city’s economic growth is consistent with the population growth because that growth does not create the adequate or sufficient number of economic opportunities for all the residents. For example, approximately 17% of the city’s population is unemployed. To page 2

Mnr George Andrew John White (77) is op 30 April oorlede.

Mnr George Andrew John White (77) is op 30 April na ‘n lang siekbed oorlede. White is op 12 Desember 1935 in Polokwane gebore en het sy hoërskoolloopbaan as hoofseun aan die Hoërskool Pietersburg (PHS) in 1954 voltooi. Hy was ‘n kranige rug-

People vs growth

From page 1 This tells you that the economy is unable to create the required number of jobs,” Municipal Spokesperson, Mr Simon Mokoatedi said. This issue was also raised by Westenburg Police Spokesperson, Capt Mohlaka Mashiane who said in Disteneng (New Pietersburg) alone the latest statistics showed a population of 15 000. “This area is also flushed by illegal immigrants who not only contributes to the province’s unemployment figures but also influence the crime stats as these people commit crime to make a living,” he said. South Africa’s unemployment rate rose to 25,2% in the first quarter of 2013 following a decline in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to Statistics South Africa (Stats SA). Unemployment increased by 100 000 to 4,6 million. Mashiane said informal settlements such as Disteneng, where crime is committed at a high rate, makes policing problematic as these settlements do not have street names and getting to a crime scene as quick as possible remains a challenge. Westenburg Police Station’s area of jurisdiction was extended about a year ago to include the older parts of the city as well as informal extensions to the west. “The volume of people in Polokwane necessitated a second Police station to enhance service delivery by the Police.

Futura and plots and farms are covered by Westenburg Police Station. The Lebowakgomo road in a western direction up to the N1 North is our Policing area,” Mashiane said. This area is also known for recent and new developments such as Southern Gateway, Westenburg RDP and Mahlaka A Phahla which continue to put stress on policing. Polokwane Police Spokesperson, WO Lesiba Ramoshaba said housebreaking and theft out of vehicles are currently the biggest challenges in the expanding city. “I cannot tell if these challenges will increase in the future but we urge residents in new developing areas to establish community policing forums and get involved in the fight against crime,” he said. The municipality also faces the challenges of supplying water and sanitation for new developments. Mokoatedi has given an assurance that the recent moratorium on residential land developments would not interfere with applications for basic amenities. Mokoatedi told Polokwane Observer on Tuesday that the decision, which was taken earlier this year, would only affect new township developments and high density residential developments throughout the municipality. “We have a challenge with the provisioning of bulk services such as water and sanitation and we need to strike a balance between the developments and the services. The moratorium excludes land use applications for basic amenities such as schools and churches as we will still consider those,” Mokoatedi said.

He further pointed out that the municipality was also busy developing a water and sewerage master plan which would hopefully, after approval, bring an end to the ban. Mokoatedi said the city’s population had grown from 561 770 in 2007 to 628 999 during the last census two years ago. “The recent diversified population make-up in the city is caused by an inflow of people from other districts in the province, people from other provinces and to a certain degree residents from other countries looking for economic opportunities in Polokwane,” he added Mr Marnus Bergh, Principal and Owner of Era Real Estate Polokwane explained that the matter has stifled progress in the sector as agents cannot convince investors to buy properties for development because of the cloud of uncertainty. “Developers are reluctant to invest in land with development potential and this has a negative ripple effect on the real estate sector, architects, construction companies as well as transfer attorneys,” he said. Bergh also said the municipality’s failure to communicate formally to the sector as a whole did not help matters as most rely on second hand information about the moratorium. He also pointed out that the situation will worsen the city’s already critical residential accommodation shortage and that a lack of effective communication about future plans from the municipality to rectify the current infrastructure problems fuels it.

From page 1 Pretoria was notified about the offending sign and the matter has since been referred to Limpopo Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (Ledet) who is presently dealing with the matter. The offending sign has been featured on Radio 702 and images of the sign have been sent worldwide, with environmentalists up in arms and voicing their displeasure. Ledet Spokesperson, Mr Lucky Phosa confirmed that

they have received complaints from members of the community and that there is indeed a visual environmental impact. Ledet has also visited the site. Phosa added that Ledet is in consultations with the National Department of Transport and Environmental Affairs to look at the necessary legislation before taking any action. Despite numerous attempts to get comment from the owner, his phone remained on voicemail at the time of going to press.

D

ie lyk van ‘n naakte jong vrou is Dinsdagoggend in die Makhado Lugmagbasis se swembad gevind. ‘n Bron het aan Polokwane Observer gesê sy het die lugmagbasis vir besigheid besoek toe sy daarvan te hore gekom het. “Lugmagbasispersoneel was toe glo besig om die swembad leeg te tap om die liggaam uit te haal,” sê sy. Woensdag het ‘n werknemer op die basis glo die voorval bevestig en bespiegel dat die vrou tussen die ouderdom van 18

en 20 is. Polokwane Observer het verskeie pogings aangewend om die persoon wat die lugmagbasis se mediaskakeling hanteer te kontak. Die operasionele departement het die kontaknommers van ‘n sersant Mulaudzi en ‘n luitenant, waarvan hulle self nie die van ken nie, verskaf. Polokwane Observer is meegedeel dat beide bogenoemde persone by die lugmagbasis se opedag gister (Woensdag) op Roodewal betrokke is en moontlik nie sal reageer nie. Hulle kon inderdaad nie bereik word nie. Makhado polisiewoordvoerder, kapt Maano Sadike sê die oorledene is 21

jaar oud. Sy en haar vriend het glo by die swembad gekuier waarna ‘n argument tussen die twee ontstaan het. “Ons het eers ‘n geregtelike doodsondersoek geopen, maar nadat mense met inligting beweer het dat sy en haar kêrel stry gekry het, is ‘n moorddossier geopen en haar vriend is Dinsdagmiddag gearresteer,” sê hy. Oor die gerugte dat die vrou moontlik verkrag is sê Sadike dat die nadoodse ondersoek meer duidelikheid sal verskaf. Teen druktyd kon Sadike nie sê of die man reeds in die Makhado Landdroshof verskyn het nie.

‘Improperly’ zoned premises a nuisance to neighbour lesetja malope >>malopelj@gmail.com A property in the city allegedly accommodating almost 30 young ladies has neighbours up in arms after repeated complaints regarding high noise levels, public drinking and littering have apparently fallen on deaf ears. Neighbours of the premises situated at the corner of Thabo Mbeki and Voortrekker streets, have been

subjected to the annoyance daily and complain that, despite the matter being reported several times to the Police and the municipality, nothing effective has been done so far. One of the neighbours claims the premises houses up to 30 young women, is probably not correctly zoned and has questionable hazardous defects, indicating that it may have not been inspected at all by the municipality if rezoning did take

place at all. Polokwane Municipal Spokesperson, Mr Matshidiso Mothapo said the municipality and the Police recently conducted a sting operation in the area after receiving complaints about noise and public drinking. “We have received an application for rezoning of the property from normal residential to high density residential. An inspection was conducted on the property upon receiving the application and the process is ongoing,” he said.

Motion of no confidence in Mathale turned down lesetja malope >>malopelj@gmail.com Speaker of Provincial Legislature, Mr Rudolph Phala has turned down a motion of no confidence in Premier Cassel Mathale by the Democratic Alliance (DA) during a Provincial Legislature sitting on Thursday. DA Provincial Legislature Caucus Leader, Ms Desiree van der Walt said in a media statement released on the matter that Phala’s refusal to let the motion be debated was flawed and the party would be seeking legal

advice on the matter. “Mr Phaala sought to justify his decision by invoking section 130 of the Constitution which clearly does not support him. This section provides that the Premier can be removed by two thirds of legislature members on the following grounds, serious violation of the Constitution or the Law, Serious misconduct, inability to perform the functions of office. Not only has Mathale led this provincial government into a massive deficit, five departments under him were placed under administration. If this is not the inability to

perform the function of office, nothing will be,” the statement read. Van der Walt said Phala should have allowed the debate for the benefit of the electorate. “If thousands of patients who cannot access health care or learners are having to go to school without textbooks is not a violation of the constitutional mandate, then the Speaker must explain what is. He should allow this debate to be held, the people of Limpopo deserve to know the truth about their elected representatives,” she said.

Twee mense is Vrydag omstreeks 06:30 dood nadat ‘n oorlaaide minibustaxi se band vermoedelik op die R71 net buite die stad gebars en omgeslaan het. Volgens die departement van vervoer se skakelbeampte, me Mootane Kagiso het die taxi 17 passasiers vervoer en die loopvlak van die bande was nie in ‘n padwaardige toestand nie. “Die bestuurder het vermoedelik die spoedgrens oortree toe een van die bande gebars

het waarna hy beheer oor die voertuig verloor en dit omgeslaan het. Twee mense is dood en 15 beseer.” Saterdagoggend het ‘n bus op die N1 Noord net buite die stad omgeslaan nadat dit teen ‘n voertuig gebots het. Volgens ‘n polisiebeampte op die toneel het die bestuurder van die voertuig vermoedelik verskeie ander motors en die bus verbygesteek maar te gou terug na sy baan beweeg en skrams met die bus gebots, omgeslaan en gerol. Verskeie buspassasiers asook die bestuurder van die motor is beseer.

The budget, which has decreased by 8,4% from the previous financial year, would see a number of programmes receiving significantly smaller budget portions. Letsatsi-Duba further said the longstanding Provincial Archives Centre was finally completed and urged departments and municipalities to utilise the

facility for archiving information. “This is a centre where documents will be preserved and made available for the next generations. I therefore invite all state departments, municipalities and parastatals to fully utilise this facility,” she said. She said R113 million of the overall budget would be going towards conditional grants including the library grants which has been slashed by 22% to a mere R56 million. “The Mass Sport and Recreation Conditional Grant has increased by 1,4% from the previous year’s allocation of R55,7 million to the current

year’s allocation of R56,5 million,” she added. The department’s allocation for administration has also been decreased significantly from R105 million to R99 million while its cultural affairs programme has been allocated R22 million. “The Department will also launch the National Symbols project, to provide learners with the platform to explore the meaning of values in their lives as young South Africans. Further to this, the Department has also allocated a budget of R700 000 to implement the Liberation Heritage Route,” she said.

DA’s R10 million no revelation >> Stadium hosted more PSL games than any other in the country >> DA wants better marketing for the precinct lesetja malope >>malopelj@gmail.com

P

olokwane Municipality has dismissed the Democratic Alliance’s (DA) media statement about R10 million being spent on poorly attended soccer matches as “old oil in new jars”. The Municipality’s Director of Community Development in charge of the Peter Mokaba Sport Precint, Mr Ndavhe Ramakuela said some of the information contained in the statement were matters that were tabled before council two months ago and not a recent revelation. DA Cllr Kenny Makgabo said in the statement that the municipality had spent more than R10 million in one season to secure three Premier Soccer League teams to play at the Peter Mokaba Stadium. “For a single Kaizer Chiefs’s game, the municipality spent R1 million but failed to live up to the expectation of filling the stadium to its capacity. R3 million was spent for all 15 games involving Black Leopards, but none of the games attracted more than 3 000 people. The Municipality spent a further amount of R562 500 to host SuperSport United which attracted less than 5 000 spectators. In addition to this, many of the tickets are either given for free or as complementary tickets. The Peter Mokaba stadium should be an asset to the people of Limpopo. Our main concern is that the municipality does not have measures in place to market all these games and ensure that attendance is not poor. Instead the municipality is throwing millions at these games without a proper marketing strategy,” the statement read Makgabo added that he would be writing to the Executive Mayor, Cllr Freddy Greaver requesting him to reconsider the agreements with the teams in order to attract more spectators. “If the municipality can’t find a way to

make these games a profitable exercise then perhaps the money is best spent addressing the massive basic service backlog in the city,” he concluded. In a written response on the matter, Ramakuela said the actual cost for hosting 26 matches, including knockout matches, at the two stadiums was R10,5 million. “The different costs per club, the number of matches to be played and the full-rights revenue model were shared with the Council in the first quarter of the 2012/2013 financial year. They were approved by Council which the DA is a member of,” he said. Ramakuela also said marketing of the matches was not the municipality’s primary function but the municipality merely supports using the available resources. “The municipality was fully aware of the risks involved in contracting some of those matches that may not attract many spectators. Equally, the municipality looked at the greater benefit that each match would bring to the economy of Polokwane. There are matches that attracted up to 37 000 fans as well as others that were played at the Old Peter Mokaba stadium that attracted less than 2 000 spectators. Overall each game contributed significantly beyond the ticketing revenue at the stadium, accommodation, restaurants, shops and other facilities benefitted immensely when the matches were hosted. It is estimated that on a weekend where a game of more than 30 000 spectators is played, the economy of the city generates between R3 million and R5 million,” he added. He further pointed that the new Peter Mokaba stadium has, on average, hosted more PSL matches than all stadiums in the country for the current season, statistically attracted more spectators than its peers and generated R5 million in revenue in the process. “Since the 2010 FIFA World Cup the stadium has hosted 673,951 spectators, averaging 10,299 per match. The municipality has a programme that seeks to involve schools and SAFA (South African Football Association) regions in supporting football. We support these schools and regions by offering complimentary tickets whilst schools and Safa provide own transport,” Ramakuela said.

Suspended Molemole Municipal Manager fights against suspension Warren Blunt >>warrenb.observer@gmail.com Suspended Municipal Manager of Molemole Municipality, Cllr David Nkoana has refuted allegations by Democratic Alliance (DA) Councillor Calvin Matje that he must be held accountable for an uncompleted road, the financial upgrading of a security tender and financial mismanagement within the municipality. Nkoana says the council approved the Matipane/Madikana road project during the 2012/13 financial year for R11,4 million and the contractor was appointed for an amount of R13,5 million. According to Nkoana, during the budget adjustment process on 13 March, council approved the variance of R2,1 million as a shortfall to the project budget. Nkoana claims Matje was at the same council meeting and did not raise any objection at the time. Regarding the late submission of annual financial statements, Nkoana alleges that the late submission of financial statements to the office of the Auditor General is a well documented problem at the Municipality and dates back to 2007, long before his time at the Municipality. According to Nkoana, the Municipality was unable to complete the preparation of the annual financial statements for the past three years on time for auditing purposes due to the acute absence of appropriately qualified personnel within the Municipality, and in particular, the finance department. He says he inherited the malady when he was appointed as Munici-

pal Manager in January 2011 and therefore cannot be blamed. During his time at the Municipality, Nkoana says he initiated a capacity building programme for key municipal personnel dubbed “Do it Yourself” through external service providers to improve the overall performance of the Municipality, but sadly, the programme has now been hampered by his suspension. He alleges that Councillor Matje from the DA is deliberately misleading members of the public when stating that he had increased the tender for a security company from R7 million to R10 million. He further said that Cllr Matje filed questions on the matter in 2012 through the Speaker of the Municipality and he comprehensively responded to all of the questions. The security company was appointed for an amount of R10,5 million for a period of three years and the amount was never increased since the start of the contract in February 2012. Nkoana explained that the only reason he is not challenging the flawed, irregular, unlawful and unfair suspension is to allow the process of investigation to unfold unhindered. “I therefore welcome any investigations by any competent authority, be they the Hawks, Public Protector or Auditor General and am readily available to cooperate with such investigations. Be that as it may, I reserve the right to challenge the flawed, irregular and unfair suspension at an appropriate time and will prove my innocence to all my distracters,” Nkoana said in conclusion.

DA happy with R900 mil tenders re-advertisements lesetja malope >>malopelj@gmail.com

T

he Democratic Alliance (DA) in the province has welcomed the Department of Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs’ (Coghsta) decision to re-advertise housing tenders to the tune of R900 million that have already been allocated. DA Local Government Spokesperson, Ms Desiree van der Walt said in a media statement on the matter yesterday (Wednesday) that the party was happy about the move after it also opened a case with the Hawks on it earlier this year. The department was allegedly

instructed to re-advertise the tenders by the national intervention team and the National Treasury. “The move by the intervention team is a step in the right direction to curb corruption in the province. It must be followed by a swift arrest of those officials who were initially responsible for allocating wrong tenders. In all probability Coghsta’s decision was done on the verge of Mangaung to ensure that Malema’s (former African National Congress Youth League Preisdent) benefactors continued to have their hands in the proverbial cookie jar,” the statement read. According to Coghsta Spokesperson, Ms Tseng Diale, the department was merely advised to re-advertise and not instructed to do so.

Diale also denied allegations that the department has received a damning forensic report on the matter. “There is no damning report at all. In fact the title of the report does not even refer to corruption but under expenditure which is also irrelevant at this stage, since our preliminary expenditure report indicates that Coghsta has spent 80% of its budget for the 2012/13 financial year; and the Auditor General is busy with the auditing process and a formal report will be issued around July 2013,” she added. Diale also pointed out that the department had not yet received feedback on the matter from the Auditor General as was requested earlier this year when it was first reported.

Muni to auction 732 animals and carcasses lesetja malope >>malopelj@gmail.com Polokwane Municipality is set to auction off 732 animals and animal carcasses from its Polokwane Game Reserve in order to keep the population to a manageable size. Spokesperson of the municipality, Mr Matshidiso Mothapo said the auction, to be conducted next Friday, will also see 342 live animals and 390 animal carcasses going under the hammer. “The game species available in the

Polokwane Game Reserve is maintained in accordance with the principles of sustainable wild life management and managed within the provisions of ecological sustainability. The principle of sustainable wildlife resources management requires that there should be wildlife stock rotation and management. The surplus species in the reserve needs to be revamped through sales and proper keeping of the game numbers in accordance with the carrying capacity of the reserve and the principle of ecological sustainability.  The reduction and rotation of

stock; amongst others, prevents inbreeding, promotes sustainable veldt management, prevents overgrazing and keeps the carrying capacity of the reserve in balance. Part of the practice in sustainable wild life management is the sale of some game species in stock to the other game breeders; offer some of the species for hunting outfitters and trophy packages,” Mothapo said also pointing out that the sale was more about curbing the number of animals than generating funds. The animals that will be on offer during the auction include 20 Blesbok, 70 Blue Wildebeest, 50 Impala, two white rhinos, 30 kudus,30 ostriches, 40 red hartebeests, 60 Burchell’s zebras and 40 tsessebes while carcasses that will be sold off include of 225 blue wildebeests, 90 impalas and 75 ostriches.

We are required to render a service in the Polokwane Central Business District (CBD) and acts of intimidation will not deter us from not working in certain parts of the CBD,” Van Rooyen said.

Councillor forks out R35 000 for service delivery campaign LESETJA MALOPE >>malopelj@gmail.com A municipal councillor in Fetakgomo has forked out R35 000 from his personal finances towards a community campaign tackling services the municipality should be providing. Democratic Alliance (DA) Councillor, Derrick Mosoana on Monday launched the Do It Yourself (DIY) Campaign in Ga Nchabeleng and further pledged R35 000 towards the initiative. “The

campaign is a partnership between community members and the DA which aims at attending to crucial service delivery matters which the municipality has failed at. This will include fixing leaking pipes, building houses for the deserving, street cleaning, road maintenance and many other issues that take a gazillion of communications with the municipality to get it done,” Mosoana said. Mosoana said he would also be lobbying the local business community to donate funds as the R35 000 was not sufficient for all the projects of

the 12 month campaign. “The municipality has a grader but available for R350 per hour so it means the municipality is profit-driven,” he added. Mosoana has previously made headlines for staging a sit in against the municipality’s Mayor, Cllr Kuki Sefala calling for her resignation over, among other things, a car she allegedly bought irregularly and he was also recently suspended by the party, coincidentally or not, a few months after he had fallout with the party’s youth leaders.

Rape is more than just an act - it ruins lives >> Even in adulthood the scars will remain deep in the soul of the victim and haunt the person forever RC MYBURGH >>rc.observer@gmail.com

I

n the eyes of the community rape may be a clear-cut criminal act. A rape victim, however is faced with a life changing situation that continuous to present challenges and requires a long journey of recovery. A local forensic social worker, who chose to remain anonymous due to the sensitivity of her work, gave Polokwane Observer the shocking statistics of having to, on a weekly basis, counsel at least 15 children between the ages of three and nine who were raped or sexually abused. Citing the recent incident of a 2-year-old girl who was allegedly raped by her father’s friend, needed reconstructive surgery and eventually died about a month after the incident, Polokwane Observer asked about the emotional impact rape has on children. “It is a ripple effect. Being sexually abused

as a child has a lifelong effect on the victim. Even in adulthood the scars will remain deep in the soul of the victim and haunt the person forever. A wide range of psychological and interpersonal problems are more prevalent among those who have been sexually abused than among individuals with no such experiences,” the social worker said. She explained that a 2-year-old is in the process to potty train. This is a first stepping stone in learning inner control and when she gets raped it is taken away from her. “When inner control is taken away trust issues develops, they get aggressive, they feel less self-concept and a ripple effect starts which will continue until adulthood,” she said. The effect of rape is endless, she stated, mentioning as an example teenage pregnancy. The victim’s inner control was taken from her so she believes being misused and abuse in her marriage will be influenced because being raped will determine the type of mother she will be for her child as well as the type of wife for her husband. Adult survivors are at increased risk of a broad range of mental problems. “All children react differently. Some will show no effect and carry the burden until their dying day while others develop various symptoms from an early age or later stage in their lives.”

She said it also differs in cultures. “In white cultures rape is a process which starts with grooming the victim then touching her and eventually raping her. In black cultures it is more down with the deed to get it done. The worst case scenario is when older children are raped by their fathers or other family members. Incest then involves a third person,” she said. The process of eventually getting a victim to admit that she was raped can be lengthy. “Children are shy to talk about sex. In black cultures they get beaten if they say a word about sex and their parents normally struggle to believe their children,” she said. To prevent situation like rape she provided two important factors to be considered by parents. “Look after your children’s emotions by giving them focussed attention, recognition, love and being a good example in your marriage. Secondly children should be taught boundaries regarding nudity such as closed bathroom doors. On the issue of women being the elicited one in rape cases she said: “I don’t believe women are out there luring men to rape them. To the layman a woman with a short skirt or slutty attitude would be out there looking to get raped, but I believe she has been sexually abused before as she has no inner control left and thinks it is fine to act the way she does.”

League assured of safety from disbandment, for now LESETJA MALOPE >>malopelj@gmail.com The National Task Team (NTT) of the African National Congress Youth League (Ancyl) is set to convene regional general councils (RGCs) across the province in order to assess the state of the organisation. The possibility of any disbandment has however been ruled out. The team, led by Mr Mawethu Rune, met with the league’s Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) on Saturday and assured them that there would be no disbanding of structures. Ancyl Provincial Spokesperson, Mr Klaas Mabunda said the PEC was told during the meeting that the RGCs would be aimed at assessing structures and intensifying the membership recruitment drive. “The NTT will however require introduction to branches by the Provincial Executive Committee, as it will lend a hand in stimulating cooperation and compliance from branches in order to advance the objective of their appointment and consequently lead to convening the National Conference in due course. Regions will convene their regional general councils which will be attended by branches of the Ancyl across the Limpopo Province, which will not only serve the purpose of introductions but to equally assess the strength of the organisation and arrive at apparent intervention were necessary,” a statement issued by Mabunda read. He added that the RGCs for Vhembe, Sekhukhune and Mopani regions would held on Saturday while Peter Mokaba and Waterberg regions would hold their RGCs on Sunday.

r Jerry Shumba (22) who stands accused of allegedly murdering a train driver, Ms Nare Mashamaite on 4 June last year at the Makhado train station appeared in the Makhado Magistrate’s Court on Friday and was not granted bail. Transnet employees protested in front of the court building in support of bail being denied. They also protested the senseless murder of their colleague with the intention of sending out a message against acts of violence perpetrated against Transnet employees. The case was postponed to 7 June. Mashamaite was allegedly brutally murdered during the course of performing her duties. According to Transnet’s Corporate Spokesperson, Ms Nomvelo Makhunga, Mashamaite was one of Transnet’s few female train drivers and was much loved by her co-workers. “Her

murder was a senseless and tragic one. For her family her death had an even more crushing impact. She was a mother, a sister, and a breadwinner who was devoted to her family and community in Polokwane,” Makhunga said in a press release. Shuma was arrested by Police in October after he broke into a house. Further investigation then linked him to the murder of Mashamaite. It is alleged that Mashamaite and her female assistant stopped the train at the Makhado station early on the day to investigate technical issues regarding the train’s braking system when Shuma attacked her. At the time of the attack, Mashamaite was at the front of the 32-wagon train and her assistant at the back. They were in communication by two-way radio. Apparently the assistant, when realising that her colleague was being attacked, fled the scene in search of assistance. When Police arrived at the scene they found Mashamaite’s lifeless body next to the train.

Apartheid houses better than current LESETJA MALOPE >>malopelj@gmail.com Congress of the People (Cope) President, Mr Terror Lekota has taken a swipe at the ruling party-led government for providing houses of inferior quality to those of the apartheid government. Lekota, addressing the party’s May Day rally at the Ngoako Ramatlhodi Sport Complex in Seshego recently, said workers’ condition has not been improved despite the political transition. “As long as the four roomed houses left by the apartheid government are better than those provided under the RDP programmes of the present government, we cannot claim that PHOTO: LESETJA MALOPE

As long as increasing numbers of workers given RDP houses sleep in them threatened by their collapse on to them and children, then there are no better conditions created,” he said addressing a capacity crowd that included the party’s national leader and Members of Parliament such as Messrs Willie Madisha and Dennis Bloem. Delivering a keynote speech that mirrored the party’s election promises, Lekota said the party would tackle the challenges facing the workers more efficiently. “We make a solemn commitment that an administration of the Congress of the People will place high premium on section 11 of the Constitution which says that ‘Everyone has the right to life’. What this means is that under our administration, no officer or commander will have the right to command members of the South African Police Service or South African National Defence Force to shoot and take lives of workers, residents or any people who may be protesting. We commit to educate and re-educate the workers to know their rights,” he added.

Hundreds of Transnet employees joined Friday’s march to show support for the case against the murderer of their colleague last year. The suspect, Mr Jerry Shumba appeared in the Makhado Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has called for the suspension of all senior managers in Greater Tubatse Municipality following the recent suspension of the municipal manager for allegedly delaying projects. DA Cllr Lethabile Kgwedi said the party wanted the managers, including the chief financial officer, supply chain manager and technical director, suspended for their al-

leged role in the matter. Municipal Manager, Mr Lemon Phala was suspended for allegedly holding up the implementation of nine different projects planned for the 2012/2013 financial year. Kgwedi insisted Phala could not have been alone in the matter as the Section 57 managers would have also played a part. “The DA will table a motion in council for an independent forensic audit to determine the role of all municipal officials in the breakdown of delivering programmes in the municipality,” Kgwedi said.

P

rovincial Police in conjunction with various role players hosted the launch of the Rape is Force Campaign in the city on Thursday. The campaign started with a march from SABC Park to the Polokwane Police Station where several role players addressed the marchers regarding creating awareness about sexual abuse. Sexual abuse is constantly escalating in the province and the Rape is Force Campaign aims to address this scourge and create awareness on how it can be stopped. The goal is to prevent and eliminate violence against women and children in all parts of the province, to reduce social acceptance of gender based violence and rape, to strengthen alliances for all provincial campaigns to increase outreach and to launch common district actions to mobilise change and raise common district concerns. The walk drew crowds from within the city centre and helped create an active environment for networking and social interaction by members of the public on the issue of rape. Over the next nine months the campaign will also be rolled out in all five districts of Limpopo in order to broaden its reach. Safety, Security and Liaison MEC, Ms Florence Radzilani addressed participants of the campaign on behalf

of Premier Cassel Mathale and said:” We have every reason to be here. We are tired of living in fear and threats because of those who choose to commit unspeakable crimes against mainly women and children. We are tired of always locking ourselves inside high wall security homes because we protect our families from those who live through the blood of others.” She emphasised that women and children cannot walk at night sometimes even during the day, because they do not know where the possible attack may come from. In certain instances even those that they trust turn to be their attackers. She said the crime of rape does not know age for even infant children and senior citizens are the target of rape criminals. “Therefore, there comes a moment in our lives where we must say enough is enough. We can no longer be sexually or physically abused with impunity. We must join efforts in confronting these monsters who derive pleasure out of the pain of innocent vulnerable people, especially women and children. The increase in the number of people reporting domestic violence against women and children must continue to worry us until we have a solution. We must report any violence which is directed at women and children regardless of where it occurred. No person, irrespective of his status in the society must be allowed

to abuse women and children without any punishment,” Radzilani said. She also issued a warning to perpetrators: “We will continue to monitor very closely the wheels of justice as the roll against those alleged perpetrators of sexual violence against women and children. Our law and justice system must be harsh in punishing those who rape women. No person must be given a presidential pardon for rape or any other women related crime. People who have been sentenced for rape must serve their full jail term without any reduction of their sentence.” She furthermore stated that although there is a noticeable progress registered in the fight against rapists and all others who abuse women and children, a lot still need to be done. “Therefore, it is more important than ever before for communities to continue working with the Police and other law enforcement institutions in combating sexual crimes against women and in punishing those responsible for such crimes. We can win the war against rapists. We can triumph over those who perpetrate evil against women and children. We can register a speedy progress in our shared objective of building a society that is free of rapists,” she said.

Sapa Yopa Club conveys anti-rape message YOLANDE NEL >>observer.yolande@gmail.com Amid all the goodwill they spread, the members of Limpopo-based Sapa Yopa Motorcycle Club have also embarked on a drive conveying an anti-rape message. Club members would simultaneously be assisting the Police in similar drives in districts after being approached to assist in getting the message across indicated Sapa Yopa MCC spokesperson Johz Mamabolo and Sapa Yopa MCC events coordinator Victor Vitto Mathabatha. Some of their members also attended Friday’s Provincial Police anti-rape campaign launch in Polokwane. In the meantime bikers from Mpumalanga also requested them to help getting a similar campaign off the ground in

that province, Mamabolo added. Their anti-rape initiative kicked off with a recent event at a biker’s pub in Mokopane coinciding with visits to Zamakhutle Disabled Centre and Gundo Orphanage in Moshate on the outskirts of town. According to Mamabolo it followed a suggestion by anti-rape activist Phemelo Khaas, who has developed a model for a men’s club aimed at addressing moral regeneration among men, for them to get involved in activities engaging the male gender. Mamabolo mentioned that they were a driving force in the province as well as nationally and could get the message across. According to him the little things they did for their community did not go by unnoticed. “It keeps us going.” In getting boys and men to listen to them, they were spreading

the message that real men didn’t rape, he added. “We’re bigger than that. Respect our sisters. No means no.”

Other sponsors include Nadia Klopper Photography, Sorbet, a local dental practice, Peugeot, Jama Ballroom

Only two weeks left to enter

Dance Studio, Body Life Health and Fitness Club, Art of Hair, Solo, Michelangelo Jewellers and Nino’s at Mall of the North. Willoughby-Smith will custom design and create a matric farewell gown and shirt for the winners that will be announced on 31 May and the closing date for the competition is Friday, 24 May. “Loads of excited couples already entered and with only two weeks to go until the closing date, we are very enthusiastic about the competition that’s going to be one of the most extravagant matric farewell competitions ever,” Willoughby-Smith said. Couples interested in entering the competition are required to submit an A3 layout or collage that represents their ideas of their farewell event. This must include a photograph of the couple,

dress, make-up and hairstyle ideas, colour and fabric ideas for the outfits and the completed entry form.

Polokwane Municipality has made it clear yet again that the dumping coupon system is suspended. Several attempts to get hold of municipal Spokesperson, Ms Noko Lebea finally proved successful on Tuesday when she responded that the system has definitely been placed on hold and that payment for the

period of suspension is not necessary. “People still using the dumping site might get confused as officials are still ordered to weigh all dumping vehicles. This is only to keep record of how many people visit the site and to establish the amount of rubble dumped on a daily basis.” On the issue that regular users of the dumping site are still pushed for payment by officials at the gate, she said: “The only

Kabelo Rodney Maake last week pleaded guilty in the Polokwane High Court to charges of murder of three women and was sentenced to life imprisonment for each charge. Another 15 years were added to each of the three charges of kidnapping as well as another 15 years for each of the three charges of armed robbery. He committed all three crimes between June and November 2010. He arranged to meet Ms Catherine Morema in Mahwibidung Village during a dating show on a local radio station. His second victim, Ms Mahlako Millicent Rachuene suffered the same fate and in the same area. Ms Mabotse Sinah Rasebotsa from Silubane village, Maake’s third victim, was also strangled and had her hands tied behind her back when found by Police. Col Ronel Otto, provincial Police spokesperson said Police managed to arrest Maake a few months after the murders following information received from the community. Maake, while in custody on suspicion of murder had pointed out the crime scenes to the Police. At the time of our going to press Messrs Siza Anthony Thanda (49) and Letepe Maisela (62) were due to appear in the Polokwane Magistrate’s Court on charges of fraud and alternatively theft. Thanda, a former Gateway Airports Authority Limited (Gaal) board member and Maisela, a well-known business consultant serving prestigious national entities were arrested by the Hawks on 3 April. Hawks Spokesperson, Paul Ramaloko then said it was alleged that Thanda who, according to information was also responsible for recruitment at Gaal, submitted the particulars of three candidates for the position of chief executive officer of the parastatal pretending that the management consulting business belonging to the other accused, Maisela, had been instrumental in the 2010 recruitment process. In return the latter would allegedly have been paid R285 000 for services rendered without being involved in the process. Both were granted R10 000 bail.

solution is to go there myself and see what is going on.” Polokwane Observer continuously reports on this issue and major rubble removing companies are furious about the confusion of payment which leads to arguments between truck drivers and officials at the dumping site. After the first report that the system has been placed on hold, Polokwane Observer was accused of thumb sucking by one of the officials.

Police arrested two suspected rhino poachers while a rifle and two rhino horns were also recovered on Friday following the killing of a rhino at Pafuri at the Kruger National Park. According to Provincial Police Spokesperson, Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi the two suspects were arrested late on Friday in the park and a .458 hunting rifle and two rhino horns confiscated. Further investigations led them to the rhino carcass the following day. The suspects, aged 48 and 33, appeared in the Makhado Magistrate’s Court on Monday on charges of the illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition as well as charges of rhino poaching. They will appear again later for further investigation. In the meanwhile Police in Phalaborwa also managed to arrest three suspected rhino poachers believed to have been on their way to shoot and dehorn rhinos in the Kruger National Park. Mulaudzi said Police received information about suspected poachers. A .375 hunting rifle and silencer, six pieces of live ammunition and camouflage clothing were confiscated. A Toyota RunX vehicle was also confiscated. The origin of the fire-arm is currently being investigated and it will also be sent for ballistic tests.

Provincial Police Commissioner, Lt Gen Simon Mpembe has again reminded the community that a R500 000 reward can be paid to a person(s) providing information that might lead to the arrest and successful conviction of rhino poaching suspects. Provincial Police Spokesperson, Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi, in a recent media release about three suspected rhino poachers being arrested in Phalaborwa and another two in the Kruger National Park, referred to the reward. “Mpembe commended the team for their sterling work and reiterated that the Police in Limpopo will fight vigorously to prevent and arrest suspects from killing and dehorning rhinos in the province. Mpembe reminded the community that a reward of up to R500 000 can be paid out to any member of the public who can provide information which will lead to the arrest and conviction of suspects involved in the act of rhino poaching or dealing in rhino horns,” the statement read.

Moeders! HETTIE GOLDEN

Ek hoor verlede week so wrintie dat ‘n kollega kla oor vrouens wat darem vreeslik voorgetrek word. Verbeel jou dit. Hy (natuurlik was dit ‘n man) meen mans word afgeskeep. Niemand maak so ‘n groot bohaai oor pa’s op Vadersdag as wat daar op Moedersdag gemaak word nie. Dan is daar nog Valentynsdag en Vrouedag wat alles net op vroue fokus. Ek maak toe die fout om te sê dat mans hulle nie veel steur aan sulke dinge nie. “Wat?” vra hy verontwaardig. “Wie dink jy koop die blomme en parfuum vir Valentynsdag en wie moet die bederfwerk doen op Moedersdag? Om alles te kroon, val Vadersdag vanjaar op Jeugdag en wie gaan dan nog tyd het vir ‘n Vader?” Siestog, dag ek. Die ongevoelige ding om nou kwyt te raak, sou iets wees soos: “Elke dag is mos Mannedag.” Maar ek is mos nie van die onsensitiewe soort nie. Ek dink dis goed dat ons ‘n geleentheid skep om ‘n bietjie aan ons moeders en vaders te dink. Dis immers een ding wat elke mens in gemeen het. Ons het elkeen ‘n ma en ‘n pa nodig, anders was ons nie hier nie. In ‘n tyd waar kinders die hoof van huishoudings is, kan ‘n mens jouself gelukkig ag om nog ‘n ma en ‘n pa te hê, of vir ‘n lang tyd te kon hê. As mens self eers kinders het, begin jy besef ouerskap is nie vir sissies nie. Almal

maak foute en ma’s en pa’s nog meer. Dis mos ook altyd die ouers wat die skuld kry as iemand skeef uitdraai, swak maniere het of sommer net ‘n nul op ‘n kontrak is. Alhoewel die meeste van ons ons bes probeer, is daar ook iets soos ‘n slegte ma. Dis iemand wat nie werklik ‘n ma is nie, wat kinders verwaarloos, verniel of sommer soos laas week se vullis laat staan. ‘n Ma word net nadat sy geboorte gegee het met hormone oorspoel, die natuur se manier om seker te maak sy sorg vir daardie skreeuende, suigende wesentjie wat enige regdenkende mens op die vlug wil laat slaan. Ons lewe in ‘n tyd waar twee ouers in ‘n huis skaars word. Ek kan nie onthou of daar soveel maatjies sonder ma’s of pa’s was toe ek ‘n kind was as wat daar nou in enige van my kinders se klasse is nie. En ons praat nie eens van egskeidings nie. Gits, na 22 jaar van getroude lewe voel ek al soos die frats. Daarom dink ek, as jy Sondag met Moedersdag nog ‘n ma het, mag jy haar maar behoorlik bederf. As jy nie meer een het nie, dink in liefde aan haar en alles wat sy vir jou gedoen het. Soek sommer ‘n ma wat niemand het om haar te bederf nie. Dis dalk ook ‘n goeie tyd om aan kinders te dink wat glad nie meer ‘n ouer in die huis het nie. Gelukkige Moedersdag vir al die mammies. (En ons sal onthou van die Pappies, moenie worry nie.)

‘Jy is ’n awesome ma’ >> Sy is ook ma vir die leerders by die skool >> Kwaliteittyd met man en kinders het belangriker as kwantiteittyd geword

Me Elana Erasmus in haar kantoor by Jabez Christian Academy saam met haar seuns Luan (17), Janco (16) en Ricardo (12).

BEN SNYMAN >> bensnyman.observer@ gmail.com

O

m ’n ma van drie seuns te wees, ‘n huishouding te bestuur en boonop ’n professionele pos as skoolhoof van Jabez Christian Academy te hê is vir me Elana Erasmus ’n uitdaging in vandag se gejaagde lewe. Sy sê die besluit om die pos as hoof te aanvaar, het ‘n groot impak op haar man, Lourens gehad. Hy moet baie aande as ma instaan as sy by vergaderings is of skole in ander provinsies besoek. Erasmus is sedert 2004 hoof en werk ook sedert 2005 deeltyds as evalueerder en moderator vir Umalusi, ‘n organisasie wat kwaliteitonderwys in Suid-Afrika verseker Die egpaar is al 20 jaar getroud en Elana meen: “Dit maak hom verseker my wederhelf.”   “My man en kinders is ongelooflik ondersteunend en baie onafhanklik. Hulle doen in die week baie mannedinge saam as ek by die skool besig is. Ons algemene reël is dat die skool in die week voorrang geniet, maar van Vrydag 14:00 tot Sondagaand is ek net mamma en vrou. Dan ondersteun ek my manne terwyl hulle jag, boogskiet, verfbal speel

en visvang. Soms spandeer ons net rustige tyd saam as gesin,” sê sy.       “Benewens my verpligtinge as ma by die huis is ek ook ma vir my leerders by die skool. Dit laat my ook soos ‘n ma voel omdat ek wil verseker dat my 200 Jabez Christian Academy-kinders die beste onderrig en onderskraging kry wat die skool hulle kan bied en sodoende help verseker dat hulle ‘n verskil in die wêreld kan maak.”   “Kwaliteittyd met my man en kinders het belangriker as kwantiteittyd geword. Ek probeer om elkeen te laat voel dat hy spesiaal is. Ek het ook geleer om te luister na wat my gesin sê en nie net bloot te hoor nie - dit maak ‘n groot verskil.”   “My kinders het onlangs vir my gesê ‘Mamma jy is ‘n awesome ma!’ Dit was die mooiste woorde wat ek nog gehoor het,” sê Erasmus. Haar raad aan ander ma’s is: “Onthou jou gesin is God se geskenk aan jou, waardeer elke oomblik saam met hulle en hou aan om vir hulle te bid. Gister het ek nog doeke geruil en nou skryf my oudste seun matriek. Maak seker dat hulle weet jy is lief vir hulle.” Erasmus sê om vrou alleen ‘n professionele beroep te beoefen en ‘n huishouding te bestuur is baie veeleisend, maar met genade van bo kan jy op die water loop.

Super­woman tactics up their sleeves YOLANDE NEL >>observer.yolande@gmail.com

Me Alison de Villiers vier vanjaar vir die eerste keer Moedersdag as ma van Dietrich (11 maande).

Mother tongue. Mmawe! Mom’s taxi. Mamma Mia. Ma Baker. “Mama just killed a man...” No matter the context, mothers form an integral part of one’s life. On Mother’s Day the maternal figure gets to be the focal point of those who hand over tokens of appreciation for the change they effect. These resourceful souls comfortably portray multiple characters. They create liveable spaces, care for a sick soul, sort out finances, prove to be master chefs, have shoulders to cry on, become fierce warriors when having to guard their dependants, wait patiently outside venues for hours to give their budding superstars a safe ride home, demonstrate socially acceptable behaviour and share valuable life lessons. And if they cannot manage any Superwoman tactics, they have magicians on speed dial to do the dirty work at a fee or as a favour. When everything else fails, they consult Google in seeking instant solutions. All of it without asking anything in return... if they receive an unexpected sign of love, they burst with emotion. Without them we are pretty poor.

Shoppers to sign world’s biggest Mother’s Day card RC Myburgh >>rc.observer@gmail.com Mother’s Day is usually filled with gifts, treats and cards bought for that special woman in everyone’s life, our mothers. This year was made more special by Mall of the North in conjunction with Royal Baking Powder when the world’s biggest Mother’s Day card was put up in the mall and people were given the opportunity to add their own personal message in the card, thanking their moms for everything they have done for them. As far back since 1863 Royal Baking Powder has been tried, tested and its uses and virtues passed down from generation to generation, allowing it to reach its 150th year. To celebrate both this momentous occasion and the moms who made it possible, Royal Baking Powder invited consumers to become part of creating the world’s largest Mother’s Day card. “We are very excited about celebrating this iconic brand’s 150th birthday. Royal Baking Powder has been tried and tested by several generations of South African ma’s and so for this significant milestone we will be honouring these moms when we take our giant card around the country for as many adoring moms and children to sign as possible” Ms Meredith Kelly, Category Lead at Kraft Foods explained. The Mother’s Day card was launched in Durban in mid-April and is in the process of travelling through the country until it reaches Johannesburg this weekend, in time for Mother’s Day.

Limpopo Win-a-Car kompetisie realiseer nie Mariëtte Snyder >> mariette.observer@gmail.com

T

alle oproepe is die afgelope maande van ongelukkige inwoners ontvang wat voel hulle trek aan die kortste end nadat hulle ‘n barmhartige Samaritaan, mnr Marinus Snyman se Limpopo Win-a-Car kompetisie ondersteun het. Snyman het aan Polokwane Observer gesê hy het die kompetisie geloods met die doel om drie plaaslike organisasies finansieel te ondersteun. Die gelukkige wenner sou ‘n spogmotor na die trekking wen. Volgens inligting het Snyman sowat 1 660 kaartjies aan inwoners teen R450 per kaartjie

verkoop en dié kaartjies nader aan die spertyd teen R350 verkwansel. Die gelukkige trekking sou einde verlede jaar plaasvind maar daar was volgens hom nie genoeg kaartjies verkoop nie en die trekking is na einde Februarie vanjaar uitgestel. Hy sê hulle het beplan om 2 000 kaartjies te verkoop maar enigiets minder sou nie die kompetisie die moeite werd gemaak het nie. Hy het later besluit om die kompetisiereëls aan te pas. Die deelnemers sou nie meer ‘n voertuig wen nie, maar hulle is gevra of hulle deel wil wees van ‘n kontanttrekking met ‘n sekere persentasie wat steeds aan die drie organisasies geskenk sou word. Volgens Snyman het die meerderheid deelnemers gesê hulle wil

eerder hul geld terug hê. Snyman sê hy het eposse aan sowat 1 300 mense gestuur om hulle te verwittig dat hul geld terugbetaal sal word. Die oorblywende 360 mense, waarvan hy nie besonderhede het nie, sal hy glo persoonlik besoek om hul geld terug te betaal. Hy sê van die sowat R671 000 wat hy met die kaartjieverkope ingesamel het, het hy reeds R580 000 terugbetaal en die oorblywende R91 000 moet nog terugbetaal word. Persone wat onsuksesvol was om hul geld te verhaal kan met Polokwane Observer in verbinding tree. Skakel Mariëtte Snyder by 015 291 1061 of stuur ‘n epos aan mariette.observer@gmail. com.

Ladanna Business Hub

Ladanna is still a popular business area >> Available property are snapped up quickly >> Nature of suburb provides variety of possibilities for business

T

he busy suburb and business area of Ladanna offers something for everyone and business owners in Ladanna are adopting a specialised and hands-on approach to customer service to compete with the new malls in the city. When it comes to shopping and doing business this area is flourishing and quite capable of operating independently as a small village within the city of Polokwane. With the added advantage of being part of the route connecting Polokwane’s central business district to the suburb of Seshego, Ladine and Ladanna are extremely busy areas most of the time. The suburb’s location provides easy access from both Nelson Mandela Drive and Vermikuliet Street and is also a major reason for its popularity. The area is characterised by a mixture of businesses ranging from butcheries to liquor stores, mini-supermarkets, wholesalers, scrap yards, panel beaters, engineering companies and fuel distributors. The main advantage to businesses is that their overheads tend to be lower than those in the central business district (CBD). The variety of businesses offer essential services and customer loyalty continues to play a vital part in the existence of these businesses.

OBSERVER

While many of these businesses belong to corporate groups or are franchises, others have been owned and managed by the same individuals of families for decades. Customers also choose businesses in Ladanna because they are more easily accessible and parking is less complicated than in the CBD. There is however also a healthy flow of new blood and ideas to the area. This testifies to the fact that the area is viable for doing business. The area is also a good base for distributing products and property that becomes available in this area is snapped up quickly. The area also houses the Polokwane Traffic Department and the city’s Fire Department.

Mothers and their vehicles >> Infotainment systems are the in thing to have in your vehicle to keep children occupied >> After sales systems are the cheaper option RC Myburgh >>rc.observer@gmail.com

emember the days of family holidays, bored on the back seat of your parents’ vehicle? The days when your mother did not hesitate to reach to the back to slap or threatening to drop you off next to the road the moment you get too annoying during a long trip? Well, those days are over. The idea of watching a movie or playing a video game while in the back seat of a vehicle is something we could only dream of as children, but it has been reality for some time and especially mothers benefit from this type of technology to keep children happy while she concentrates on the road. Mobile entertainment systems such as DVD players, live streaming television and video game consoles have revolutionised travelling. With systems like these everyone in the vehicle can enjoy the ride. Entertainment systems can be expensive

but affordable ones are also available. Video systems are available in overhead flip down screens or individual headrest screens can be installed. The headrest system is much more preferable because they give an unobstructed view and some models allow you to watch separate programmes on each screen. Local dealerships explained what the modern mothers of today prefer to have in her vehicle to entertain her children. BMW dealer, Modern Autohaus Marketing Manager, Ms Jeaneatte Niksch said they do not get regular requests for infotainment systems. “Clients who are usually interested in these kinds of systems are the family man who is buying an X5 or 7 Series. The client will also order his vehicle with various extras to suit his needs and then add the rear seat entertainment system, which are quite pricey,” she said. Modern Autohaus Sales Manager, Mr Nelson Marais said the most popular system which mothers like to add to their vehicles is the after sales DVD system with two headrest screens. This is also cheaper and available at almost R4 000. Sales Manager at Volkswagen Polokwane, Mr Wally Goosen said favourite vehicles on mothers’ lists include the Touran and Kombi with the Tiguan as their favourite. “We often get queries from mothers about infotainment systems but clients prefer to install them after the purchase as it is much cheaper than ordering it from the Volkswagen manufacturer,”

Goosen added. Today’s children are no longer entertained by a pack of cards or playing cricket with vehicles passing or even playing “I spy with my little eye”. They have access to the latest technology and by giving them a pack of cards to play with in a vehicle would be a slap in the

face of technology. If you are a mother and your children have the ability to get you mad behind the steering wheel get to your vehicle dealer and enquire about an infotainment system for your vehicle. Driving will never be more relaxed and before your children know it your destination will be in sight.

Infotainment systems are the new trend to keep children busy during long journeys. This might also be the perfect Mother’s Day gift to keep mothers happy behind the steering wheel.

N Me Nancia Kruger: “Die verkeerde mense is besig om die skuld te kry vir die petalje.”

Me Erica van den Heever: “Dit skep ’n baie negatiewe beeld van die land se veiligheidstoestand.

Mnr Henry Denysschen: “Dit wys dat die land onregeerbaar is en meer vrae oor korrupsie na vore bring.”

Me Alta Gouws: “Die land moet weet wie toestemming gegee het en die redes daarvoor moet uitgespel word.”

Me Magdel Cooper: “Dit is blote misbruik van die land se veiligheidspunte deur die regering vir eie gewin.”

Mnr Chris Smith: “Die persoon wat die landing toegelaat het, het nie seker gemaak van waar die toestemming vandaan gekom het nie.”

Mnr PJ Strydom: “Die ernstige oortreding van ’n landswet het ook ’n romantiese aspek. Dat ’n man ’n landswet kan verbreek om sy liefde aan ’n vrou te betoon.”

ationwide charismatic religious organisation, Church on the Hill (Coth), officially launched its Polokwane campus during an ordination ceremony of Pastor Vusi and Molatelo Mashabane at Meropa Casino & Entertainment World on Saturday. The lavish event, attended by prominent business personalities in the province as well as Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs (Coghsta) MEC, Mr Clifford Motsepe who delivered the opening address, saw the pastors’ spiritual parents and founders of the 25-year-old church, Bishop Mxolisi Lephoko and his wife, Ofentse Lephoko performing the ordination and giving their blessings to the

church’s successful running. Addressing the capacity crowd, Mxolisi Lephoko said he had known the couple for many years and they have proven through diligence to be good servants of God in the church. “These are tried and tested servants who defended this church even when it was not fashionable to do so.

Besoekers aan Savannah Mall is onlangs verras met ‘n uitstalling en vertoning van radiobeheerde modelvoertuie.

“’n Kapsule wat pyn verlig, depressie teenwerk, energievlakke verhoog, hoë bloeddruk in ‘n japtrap verlaag en kankerrisiko’s verminder. Dit klink dalk te goed om waar te wees, maar die nuwe Omega Caro-E aanvulling bied dit alles én meer,” meen me Adri Ras, streeksbestuurder van die Kankervereniging van Suid-Afrika (Kansa) wat self die voordele van dié aanvulling op die proef gestel het. Dit is ook die eerste kapsule ter wêreld wat Kansa se seël van goedkeuring wegdra. Ras sê die kapsules is ‘n natuurlike produk wat onder meer verskeie visolies, die korrekte persentasie omega 3 -6, en suiwer palmolie uit Maleisië bevat. Die kapsules is reeds by Kansa teen R97 vir ‘n maand se voorraad beskikbaar. “Belê in dié produk en gee jou gesondheid die hupstoot wat dit nodig het,” sê Ras. Vir meer besonderhede kan hul kantoor by 015 297 1268 geskakel word of Ras by 082 497 7149.

Khayalam Properties warns of fraudster

RC Myburgh >>rc.observer@gmail.com

Khayalam Properties warned the community about a man who goes by the name of Mr Jabulani Chauke who allegedly fraudulently advertises property situated at 66 Hoog Street, Lawn Court Unit 1, Polokwane for rent. In a media statement Principal, Ms Kay Chipana stated that Chauke is an alleged fraudster who is not employed and does not have the right to act on behalf of Khayalam Properties. “Between 19 and 29 April Chauke took out an advert on the Gumtree website stating that he has the property at 66 Hoog Street available for lease at an amount of R3 200. This is

incorrect. The property is under Khayalam’s sole administration at a monthly rental of R4 800. Any correspondence in this regard would bear the Khayalam logo and special marks that identify registration number and physical address,” the statement read. Khayalam received complaints from five people, three of whom had already been duped into paying the rental amount into the account of a private individual with a commercial bank different from the one used by Khayalam. “Khayalam would never ask anyone to pay rental fees into a personal account, but it would be into a Khayalam Trust Account with Absa. For verifica-

tion purposes all our agents carry Fidelity Fund Certificates with them all the time when they have to transact. Khayalam wishes to reiterate that it operates within the best business practices that would not jeopardise the well-being of its clients and the public at large,” Chipana was quoted to say. A case of fraud has been opened with the Police against Chauke and his associates and the bank has frozen the account used for receiving deposits from prospective tenants. Anyone with information or people who have been affected by the scam can report to WO Malebana at Polokwane Police Station at 015 290 6000. The case number is CAS 814/4/2013.

‘Hou jou rokkies bymekaar’ eersdaags in die stad Bekende oudinwoner van die stad en musiekgenie, Gisela de Villiers en Robert Brooks, ‘n begaafde tenoor bied eersdaags, Hou jou rokkies bymekaar, aan wat liedere uit die Federasie van Afrikaanse Kultuurvereniginge (FAK) Sangbundel bevat en van humor en erns spreek. Die produksie handel onder meer oor die toekoms van Afrikaners. Die twee kunstenaars wys uit dat die Afrikaanse taal geen beperking ten opsigte van ras of kleur het nie en dat Afrikaans inklusief en nie eksklusief is nie. Hou jou rokkies bymekaar is die eerste van ‘n reeks produksies wat deur die kunstenaars beplan word en volgens hulle “FAK met stiletto’s, ’n nuwe baadjie en koeksisters uit die digkuns” is. De Villiers en Brooks het ‘n interessante musiekgeskiedenis. As medekoorlede in die destydse Natalse Jeugkoor het hulle as soliste ‘n konsert in 1978 aangebied. Brooks het daarna na Europa verhuis waar hy sy musiekstudies in Salzburg en Wene voortgesit het. Hy was 1986 daar die wenner van die Musiekverein se internasionale sangkompetisie en is steeds as sanger in Europa in aanvraag. De Villiers het na die voltooiing van haar musiekstudies as komponis en kabaretsanger opgetree. Sy het talle musiekverwerkings vir koormusiek gedoen asook koorbegeleiding,-afrigting en het dikwels as beoordelaar opgetree voor sy Pretoria haar tuiste gemaak het. Sy was nasionale wenner van ATKV-Crescendokompetisie en as koorleier ook nasionale Applous-wenner. Dié twee uitnemende musiekkenners het na 32 jaar besluit om weer saam musiek te maak en tree op 21 Mei by NG Kerk PietersburgNoord se saal teen R50 per persoon op.

Kansa se nuwe Relay for Life-koördineerder

HOUSE OF THE WEEK

BENDOR

Mariëtte Snyder >> mariette.observer@gmail.com Me Janie Wierenga het verlede week by die Kankervereniging van Suid-Afrika (Kansa) aangesluit waar sy voortaan as Relay for Life-koördineerder dié projek na hoër hoogtes wil lei. Wierenga is nie ‘n onbekende in die stad nie. Sy het die afgelope twee jaar op die Relay for Life-komitee gedien en dié pos is reg in haar kraal. Oor haar aanstelling sê sy: “Ek het gevoel dit is tyd om terug te gee. Ons almal drink uit die beker maar ek voel dit is my tyd om te skink.” Wierenga is opgewonde oor die nuwe uitdaging en glo dat sy nuwe lewe in die projek kan blaas. Dit die sesde keer dat die gebeurtenis in die stad aangebied word en sy en die komitee is gerat om dit ses keer beter te maak. “Daar lê talle verrassings vir die gemeenskap voor. Die komitee het hoë energievlakke wat ‘n opwindender Relay op 11 en 12 Oktober voorspel,” sê sy. Die komitee hoop om vanjaar 350 spanne op die baan te huisves en het hulle reeds planne in plek om dit geriefliker vir deelnemers te maak indien dit reën. Wierenga se boodskap aan ondersteuners is: “Kanker kyk nie na die weer as dit toeslaan nie daarom moet ons ook nie dat die weer ons afsit om mense wat deur kanker geraak is, te ondersteun nie.” Sy en haar span het groot planne om die spanne meer betrokke te kry om ekstra geld met die projek in te samel. Groot pryse vir die wenspan en individu wat die meeste geld insamel is op die spel. Sy nooi die gemeenskap om haar by 015 297 1268 te skakel om nou reeds spanne in te skryf.

Buy with confidence

Buying your first property is a process that can be fraught with confusion. This simple list will set you on the path to home ownership. 1. Save up for a deposit Banks are far more likely to approve your home loan if you have a deposit saved up. So as soon as you start considering house hunting (and preferably before), start putting away that extra cash. “Having a deposit saved up means that the bank doesn’t have to take all the risk on your property, so of course they’ll be more likely to approve your bond,” says Jenny Rushin, Provincial Sales Manager at ooba, Western Cape. “Being strict about putting money away before you buy a home is also good practice for repaying your bond later.” 2. Manage your existing credit Your credit record is your most valuable asset when applying for a home loan. This means that you should have a record of paying back credit responsibly. “Sadly, the banks won’t grant you a large credit amount until you’ve shown that you can be responsible with paying back smaller amounts, so get yourself a credit card, a store card or a bank loan and pay the installments on time,” says Rushin. 3. Get your paperwork in order The banks will require three months of your most recent bank statements, a pay slip, your ID and a proof of residence. You will also be required to fill out a document showing your income and expenditure. “Make sure you have a copy of all of these documents readily available for when you find that perfect home,” says Rushin. 4. Work out how much you can afford Rushin explains that a bank will work out your affordability based on your disposable income after deductions and expenses, but will not grant you a home loan for which the repayments are more than 30% of your gross monthly income. This can be mindboggling maths, so she advises using an affordability calculator to work out your maximum home loan. 5. Be realistic Take a long, hard look at your lifestyle and make a list of the factors that will suit your needs. If you travel a lot, don’t buy a house with a big garden that requires lots of maintenance. If you’re going to be living alone, buy a smaller apartment in a better area. If you’re thinking of getting married and having kids in the next few years, buy an affordable house with an extra room, rather than an expensive apartment in the heart of the city. “Buying for the long term means that you won’t have to go through the stress of house hunting and the expense of transfer again too soon,” says Rushin. “Even though it’s important to get a foothold on the property ladder as soon as you can, think strategically to make sure you’re making the right purchase.” 6. Run a credit check before you start Rushin explains that some companies or individuals don’t follow the proper procedures for a blacklisting, so the first time many

people find out that they’ve been blacklisted is when they apply for credit. “Every South African is entitled to a free credit check once a year, so find out what your credit rating looks like before you’ve made an offer on a home, when there’s still time to do something about it,” she says. 7. Do a lot of hunting before you buy Start house hunting a while before you actually need to buy to give yourself a sense of what you can afford and what compromises you might have to make. Use a comprehensive website, such as Privateproperty.co.za to get started and check out your options, then start going to show days. Educating yourself in this way means that when you see your dream home, you’ll know if it’s too good to be true or the real deal. “Houses are as varied as the people who live in them,” explains Rushin. “You might have a very specific set of needs, but then find out that you’re unlikely to find a house that has everything you’re after. In the process, you might become aware of what else is important or what you can do without, so start looking early.” 8. Don’t lose hope Buying a home – especially in the first-time buyer bracket – can be a little disheartening when you work out how much money you are going to have to spend and what you can actually get for that. Don’t ever buy out of desperation, but rather wait for the right thing to come along. “There’s something out there for everyone,” says Rushin. “Something will come along that suits your tastes and your budget, so don’t lose heart, and happy hunting.” 9. Apply to multiple banks for your home loan Each bank has its own specific set of lending criteria. To improve your chances of getting your home loan approved in time, and of getting the best interest rate, submit your application to as many banks as possible at the same time. The latest ooba statistics show that 28.7% of ooba’s applications that were declined by one bank were approved by another. 10. Use an expert originator to get you the best deal on your home loan Getting a home loan approved involves lots of paperwork, some of which can be very confusing. It gets even more complicated if you take the advice above and apply to more than one bank. Because of this, it’s a good idea to use the services of an expert originator, like ooba, to submit your application to multiple banks. “To get your application presented in the best possible light and to avoid filling out the paperwork more than once, use a bond originator like ooba who will do this for you, for free,” suggests Rushin. ooba currently gets 74% of the home loans it facilitates approved. The national average bank approval rate is 54%, which means that you have a 37% better chance of approval if you go through ooba.

Bonita van Schalkwyk created an edible sweets creation.

Elzaan Oosthuizen wowed with this mad hatter look that even included a zipper.

Music icon, Mr Tsepo Tshola.

The lighter side of the Pope lesetja malope >>malopelj@gmail. com A list of South African music icons that flew and continue to raise the country’s flag high on international stages would not be complete without also the name of afro-jazz legend, Tsepo Tshola. Polokwane Observer met with the veteran musician at Saskia Restaurant recently for an exclusive interview and his humble humour did not disappoint in spicing up the chat. Not one to shy away from rephrasing questions posed upon him, Tshola said after spending more than four decades in the music industry, he still sees every day as a highlight of his career. “I can’t define any point as a turning point in my life because I never turned, I’ve been walking,” he said with a heavy baritone voice that has earned him a place in music history as a one of the best. The Village Pope, as he is fondly known by fans, prefers to refer to himself as merely a messenger of information and not to box himself in a particular genre of music. “I am genreless. I am just a musician. I am a messenger of great information and presenter of song,” he said adding that he has done more collaborative songs than anyone he knew. Despite music being the only thing he has done for the past 43 years, he still sees the art as his work and not just a lifestyle and professes to still getting butterflies whenever he performs on stage. “If the nervousness dies I might as well not do it,” said the welltravelled musician. In his latest offering, the quintessence of Tsepo Tshola, he has managed to throw the gauntlet to a team of youthful producers and he said he was impressed with the outcome. The 14-track album also includes three of some of his all time favourites and other songs penned by the biggest names in the music industry.

• Bakkie frames (sheep, hunting, game viewing, etc) • Exhausts, tow bars, bull bars, batteries, shocks, brakes.

2012 Comrades Marathon winner Ludwick Mamabolo is adamant he still has all the acumen to defend his title. Mamabolo was cleared of doping charges in last year’s race barely a month before this year’s event. The 35-year-old athlete tested positive for methylhexaneamine last year, shortly after he became the first South African in seven years to win the marathon.

“It has been tough for the past 10 months, but I am happy that I am finally cleared. As for the title, I am very much aware that the Comrades is just around the corner but I believe in myself. I believe I can defend the title, no matter what. I have been training hard in my home town. I have been making use of local races to prepare for the marathon and I am just waiting for the day,” Mamabolo told Polokwane Observer on Tuesday.

Polokwane Golf Club’s twenty times Women’s Champion >> Won the Limpopo Open & Closed Women’s title 18 times >> Is the current President of the Limpopo Women Golf Union Warren Blunt >>warrenb.observer@gmail.com

T

wenty times Polokwane Golf Club Women’s Champion, Desiree Earle started swinging a golf club at the tender age of

six. She tells of how she got bitten by the golfing bug when she followed her dad around the golf course when she was still a little girl. Her father, Ray Earle is currently the resident professional at the Polokwane Golf Club and the head coach for the Goose Academy at the club. She has been associated with the golf club for 29 years and remembers hitting golf balls on the driving range with Retief Goosen before he gained international fame by winning the US Open twice. She also recalls the time when she was sixteen and played a round at the Hans Merensky Golf Club in Phalaborwa with Ernie Els. The golf course in Phalaborwa is one of her favourites with all the beautiful wild animals, although she cautions against landing in the rough because of all the snakes that could be lurking there. Earle received her first official golfing handicap in 1984 when she was thirteen-years-old and currently plays off a handicap of six. The first tournament that she ever won as an amateur golfer was the Koraalboom Tournament at the Tzaneen Golf Club in 1986. The year afterwards, she finished fifth in the SA Junior Girls Rose Bowl tournament at the Royal Durban Golf Course. She received her Northern Transvaal colours for the first time in 1988, the same year she won the then Pietersburg Open, Messina Open

and Drakensig Open tournaments. Since becoming the Polokwane Golf Club Women Champion for the first time in 1989, Earle has triumphed another 19 times to clinch the title for a record 20th time in 2013, after reeling off victories for the past four years. She also won the then Far North Ladies Open for the first time in 1989. Since becoming the Northern Province Ladies Closed and now the Limpopo Ladies Closed tournament, Earle has clinched the title another seventeen times with her last victory in 2008. The mother of two says she still enjoys golf just as much as when she started and added that every round presents an entirely new challenge, no matter how often you play. Earle is also involved with coaching young golfers from the ages of six to 10 at the Polokwane Golf Club. After she has finished teaching them the basics of posture, stance, grip and alignment the young golfers graduate to the Goose Academy, which has produced seven Protea golfers over the past ten years. Earle has a level one Professional Golf Association coaching certificate and is also a Royal & Saint Andrews rules official. She has played the old course at the Royal & Saint Andrews in England once before and says landing in the bunker on the road hole at the 17th hole is an almost impossible mission to get out of. Her favourite golf course in South Africa is the Links at Fancourt near George. She was invited there last year during the Volvo Championship as the President of the Limpopo Women’s Golf Union and says it was an unforgettable experience to rub shoulders with the likes of Retief Goosen, Padraig Harrington, Thomas Levant, Darren Clarke and Retief Goosen. Earle was appointed as the first President of the Limpopo Women’s Golf Union in 1999. She was re-appointed in 2012 and in 2013 and is also a member of Women’s Golf South Africa as the representative of Limpopo.
