erdere ontwikkeling van en investering in die hoofstad van Limpopo mag eersdaags tot stilstand gedwing word deurdat Polokwane nou die

werklikheid van ‘n grootskaalse watertekort in die gesig staar. Die boodskap van die owerhede is duidelik: Polokwane het nie genoeg water vir sy inwoners nie en die situasie kan nie oornag beredder word nie. Die sluimerende krisis het

verlede week op die voorgrond begin tree met die beskadiging van ‘n hoofwatertoevoerpypleiding deur die konstruksiemaatskappy, Light Fibre Infrastructure in die Savannah Mall-omgewing waartydens 2,7 megaliter water Na bl 2

Dramatic scenes from a storm YOLANDE NEL >>observer.yolande@gmail.com

onday afternoon’s sudden rain storm saw the unfolding of dramatic scenes, resulting in the loss of life and in instances severe damage to structures in Polokwane and surrounds. Within half an hour the streets in the heart of the city were awash and turned into rivers that prevented traffic flow and caused deposits of debris. Outlying areas were equally hard hit. According to Seshego Police Spokesperson Mothemane Malefo an inquest docket has been opened after four-year-old Granny Ramokhufi allegedly drowned in a stream at Peter Nchabeleng village in the Mmotong wa Perikisi area. A preliminary assessment arising from disaster-related incidents in the areas of Polokwane, Seshego and Mmotong wa Perikisi released by Polokwane Municipality at the time of going to press reflected villages to the north west of the city being adversely affected. The figures showed that

112 dwellings in OR Mabotja/ Thambo, Mashemong, Peter Nchabeleng, Mokgokong, Lethuli, Zones 1, 2 and 6, Blood River, Khohloane and Grinaker suffered most. Elsewhere in Seshego severe damage was also caused to infrastructure. Information has since been pouring in from all corners with residents relating tales of being caught unawares when the heavens opened unannounced. Mr William Thembo, who was trapped in a hail burst in Seshego’s Zone 3 at around 17:00, said the storm raged on for an hour and a half. Confined to his vehicle, he photographed a bus that got stuck in a stream. From wide and far photos were received of the storm damage, including an image of a dam at Eerstegoud on the road to Mokopane that burst its wall. At the time of going to press a report was received from Rathu Farms in the Musina area that they have been hit by a tornado-like wind storm. The same entity was hit by devastating floods earlier this year.

Duisende liter water is Dinsdagmiddag vermors toe ‘n waterpyp op die hoek van Grobler- en Oosstraat gebars het.

Waterkrisis: Stad steier Van bl 1 (bykans 10% van die daaglikse toevoer) in stormwaterslote weggespoel het. Geen boete, hoe hoog ook al, kan op die korttermyn hiervoor vergoed nie – geld sit nie water in pype terug nie. Huishoudings, besighede en sommige skole was vir minstens drie dae sonder ‘n druppel water. Die omvang van die waterkrisis het egter duidelik na vore gekom na die storm wat Polokwane laat Maandagmiddag getref het. Modderwater het veroorsaak dat die Olifants Sand Waterskema wat 28 megaliter water per dag na die stad pomp, gesluit moes word. Die ou infrastruktuur is letterlik vrot en kan geen drukking hanteer nie. ‘n Hoofpyplyn het weer Dinsdagmiddag op die hoek van Grobler- en Ooststraat en Rissiken Hoogstraat gebars en weer is derduisende liter water daarmee heen. In ‘n mediakonferensie Dinsdag het die uitvoerende burgemeester, mnr Freddy Greaver, tesame met die munisipaliteit se waterdepartement en die bestuurspan van Lepelle Northern Water ‘n dringende beroep op inwoners gedoen om water te spaar. “Ons sit met ‘n krisis en dit gaan nie oor die vraag of jy water kan bekostig of nie, maar oor waterbesparing sodat almal dit kan benut,” het Greaver gesê en beklemtoon onder watter gewel-dige druk Polokwane se waterstelsel is. “Die Ebenezer Waterskema is verlede week deur weerlig getref, maar die probleem is binne etlike ure uitgesorteer. Verlede Dinsdag het Light Fibre Infrastructure die hoofpyplyn beskadig. Tydens reperasies het die pyp weer op twee plekke gebars en ons moes Lepelle Northern Water inroep om ‘n pyp vanaf Phalaborwa te laat kom. En nou die sluiting van die Olifants Sand Waterskema.” Hy sê Light Fibre Infrastructure het ingestem om alle koste vir die 2,7 megaliter water wat vermors is, te betaal. Die maatskappy het ook R150 000 aan die munisipaliteit se beursfonds geskenk en het gehelp om die pyp reg te maak. Die pyp is Saterdagmiddag finaal herstel en water is weer na die stad gepomp. Hy beskryf die skade aan die pyp as een van die stad se grootste krisisse sedert sy aanstelling as burgemeester drie jaar gelede. Greaver sê die Olifants Sand

Waterskema pomp slegs twee derdes van sy kapasiteit as gevolg die modder in die rivierwater wat deur swaar reën veroorsaak word. “Ons het geen aanduiding wanneer die skema weer sy volle kapasiteit kan pomp nie en doen ‘n ernstige beroep op inwoners om water te spaar. Ons het reeds baie water verloor en sukkel om die reservoir vol genoeg te kry sodat water voldoende druk het om na die hoogliggende dele van die stad te vloei. Inwoners moet ons kans gee om die reservoirs bo die 50% vlak te kry,” vra hy. Reservoirvlakke Reservoirvlakke is gister (Woensdag) gemeet met die 50 megaliter reservoir op 15% en die nuwe 30 megaliter reservoir op 14%. Die ou 30 megaliter reservoir het slegs 20% water, Potgieter reservoir 58% en die Seshego reservoir staan op 11%. Greaver het inwoners gewaarsku dat brandkrane op verskeie punte in die stad oopgemaak sal word sodra watervoorsiening terug na normaal keer om die lug uit die waterstelsel te laat. Munisipale woordvoerder, mnr Matshidiso Mothapo sê hy is bewus van die pype wat Dinsdagmiddag gebars het, maar het geen verdere inligting oor die voorvalle nie. “Ons erken dat die ou infrastruktuur die grootste bydraende faktor tot gebarste pype in die stad is. Ons het reeds verlede jaar met die program begin om ou asbeswaterpype in sekere dele van die stad met PVC-pype te vervang. Na swaar reën raak die drukking op pype te erg en dit bars.” Teen druktyd het hy gesê die reeks gebarste pype in die Capricorn-omgewing het daartoe gelei dat die gebied en dele van Faunapark nie voldoende watertoevoer het nie. ‘n Watertenk is op die hoek van Grobler- en Websterstraat geplaas. Pietersburg English Medium Primary School (Pemps) het Donderdag hul leerders huis toe gestuur omdat daar geen water by die skool was nie. Pietersburg Comprehensive School (PCS) se skoolhoof, me Denise Claassen het teen druktyd gesê hulle het ook nog nie water nie. “Iemand het water na die skool aangery. Die leerders kan water by die snoepie koop en ons het reeds water gekry om in die badkamers te gebruik. Die skool besit ‘n boorgat en watertenks en ons sal dié stelsel in orde kry vir tye soos dié,” sê sy.

Luzan Cronjé, eggenote van Neels, sê sy is trots op haar man en dankbaar vir die geleentheid wat hy het om op internasionale vlak hulp te verleen. “Ons is natuurlik bekommerd oor hul veiligheid en gesondheid, maar glo en bid dat hulle ongeskonde sal terugkeer.” Die spanleier van die Suid-Afrikaanse groep van dertig hoogsgekwalifiseerde personeellede van Gift of the Givers, mnr Ahmed Bham, sê: “Daar is groot verwoesting. Ons help op verskillende maniere. Die tweede span word nog die week verwag en nog voorraad is op pad. Dit gaan goed met die spanlede.”

“Die omvang van die skade is katastrofies en ‘n tragiese gesig. Groot skepe is uit die see geslinger, byna alles is deur die geweld van die tifoon Haiyan, gelyk gevee. Duisende mense het die afgelope elf dae geen kos of water of mediese hulp gehad nie. Daar is geen elektrisiteit, lopende water of infrastruktuur nie wat ‘n logistiese nagmerrie is. ” Die woorde kom van drie plaaslike vrywillers wat verlede week onder die vaandel van die organisasie, Gift of the Givers, na die Fillipyne vertrek het om aan te sluit by die internasionale reddingsaksie na die omvangryke gevolge van die tifoon waarin reeds meer as 4 000 van die geaffekteerde elf miljoen mense gesterf het. Die drie, Eugene Schreiber en Robert Masubelele van die provinsiale ambulansdiens en Neels Cronjé van die Polokwane Brandweerdiens, sou na hul aankoms in die Fillipynse hoofstad, Manila, met tien ton voorraad na die eiland, Palompon, vertrek het. Pad-, lugen seevervoerprobleme het egter tot gevolg gehad dat hulle eers Dinsdag hul bestemming vanaf Tacloban met die massiewe vrag bereik het. Dit is ook die eerste reddingspan wat hulle hier bevind. “Omstandighede is kritiek en die enorme logistieke- en vervoerprobleme is ‘n nagmerrie. Omtrent al die ryslande is verspoel en kokosneutbome is uit die grond geruk. Ons het ‘n kragwekker aan ‘n kliniek verskaf, die hospitaal se dak word vervang en die teater word herstel sodat operasies gedoen kan word. Siek mense word behandel en nog dokters en spesialiste is op pad. Gift of the Givers is ‘n wonderlike organisasie en sien baie goed na ons om. Baie moeite word gedoen sodat ons met ons families in kontak kan bly. Die inwoners is vriendelik en baie dankbaar, maar erg getraumatiseer,” sê Cronjé. Schreiber se eggenote, Charmaine, sê dit is die derde keer dat haar man by internasionale

Die polisie in Tzaneen was gisteroggend (Woensdag) steeds op die toneel waar ‘n boer in die Constantia-omgewing, mnr Gustav van Veiyeren ongeveer 50 km buite die dorp op sy plaas deur twee gewapende mans aangeval en geskiet is. Die voorval het Dinsdag omstreeks 19:00 gebeur. Volgens polisiewoordvoerder, kol Moatshe Ngoepe was die polisie lank op die toneel op soek na leidrade. Hy sê die twee gewapende mans het glo toegang tot die plaas verkry deur ‘n gat in die heining om die huis te maak. Van Veiyeren was voor sy motorhuis toe die mans op hom losgebrand het. “Hy het teruggeskiet en is gewond, maar is in ‘n CNR bestendige toestand BODEN SHADED | SECURED in die hospitaal. & IN STE Die honde-eenheid T REMOTE CONTROLLED E MARK en die taktiese S T GATES STREE reaksie-eenheid het ‘n PHONE 015 295 5326 soektog geloods om

Goseame soon back on track Mariëtte Snyder >> mariette.observer@gmail.com After months of uncertainty and widespread speculation regarding the wellknown fruit, vegetable, flower and meat market, Goseame Open Market, customers, employees and suppliers can rest assured that the business is on the fast track to being restored to the entity that was enjoyed by residents of the city. Mr Corrie Nel, an attorney from Corrie Nel & Kie Attorneys on behalf of the sellers, said in a press statement that following the sale of Goseame Open Market during June last year, there was some speculation about the future of this business. “The 2012 sale was a BEE-transaction. A part of the terms was that the original owners would remain involved in the business for twelve months, where after the transaction would be finalised at the end of July this year. Everything did not go according to plan and the financiers of the transaction, the National Empowerment Fund (NEF), had to intervene. Negotiations between the original owners and the NEF to rescue the transaction with the exclusion of the original purchaser were successful, with the result that it has now been finalised,” the statement read. Nel further stated that payment of the purchase price has been made to the original owners and that negotiations to involve some of the original owners in the future operation of the business are underway. Most of the impractical changes to the business during the past year have already been corrected and the business is on a fast track to being restored to the old ‘Goseame’. He said that customers and suppliers of the business can expect to receive the same level of service and quality products as they were used to in the past.

Re-run, hosting of conferences in four ANC regions YOLANDE NEL >>observer.yolande@gmail.com

T

wo regional structures of the African National Congress (ANC) in Limpopo are expected to stage re-runs of their elective conferences while another two are set to go to conference for the first time in due course. It was learnt that a second attempt at hosting a conference in Peter Mokaba region would automatically cancel a court interdict brought against the structure on Sunday in an attempt to halt conference processes that commenced on Friday. According to information the interdict originated with branches in the region dissatisfied with unfolding processes. It was learnt that the planned ANC conference in Mopani region could not proceed this past weekend as the structure was apparently not given the go ahead by ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe. At the same time the ANC in Vhembe region would need to host another conference while Waterberg region failed from the onset to go to conference, a source pointed out. The ANC in Peter MEC Mokaba region went to Lehlogonolo conference on Friday Masoga evening and by Saturday outside the evening the names of the venue where top five preferred candidelegates dates were announced. from African Roads and Transport National MEC Lehlogonolo Masoga Congress emerged uncontested (ANC) in as Regional Chairperson the Peter while votes for Solly Mokaba Rasefata secured him the region were position of Deputy Chair- busy voting person.

Meanwhile conference proceeded as scheduled, he indicated. By late afternoon delegates were given the opportunity to still cast their votes for additional members on the regional executive before having to vacate the premises as it was made available to the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) for their night vigil before EFF Leader Julius Malema’s court appearance on Monday.

Self-relocation follows OBSERVER 5 interrupted Disteneng processes November 21, 2013

>> Refused to leave out of fear that someone would claim stands they were destined to occupy

YOLANDE NEL >>observer.yolande@gmail.com

B

raving the scorching Limpopo sun the two women cut lonely figures against the backdrop of a bare Extension 78, where Tuesday afternoon activity was characterised by residents of Disteneng engaging in selfrelocation after processes of the local municipality were stopped on the weekend. The women, one a middle-aged granny with three dependents and the other a 48-year-old mother of four, refused to leave out of fear that someone would claim the stands they were determined to occupy once the material that constituted their current homes in the informal settlement on the other side of the double carriage way to Seshego arrived this weekend. By then they have sat in unbearable heat since 08:00, planning to leave again for Disteneng at 17:00 only to be back the next morning. Their resolution to take charge of a prolonged process was somewhat symbolic of the impatience on the side of members of a community desperate to escape factors like murder, rape, robbery, theft and then the petrol bombs everybody warns against. In the company of Mr Johannes Kobola, Secretary of the Disteneng Block Committee, Polokwane Observer met former and current residents of Disteneng who remained hell-bent on moving their homes to nearby Extension 78 themselves after the relocation process by Polokwane Municipality was interrupted on Saturday. According to Polokwane Municipality Communications and Marketing Manager Tidimalo Chuene the relocation to Extensions 106 and 78 was temporarily stopped after a text message to the phone of Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs (Coghsta) MEC Ishmael Kgetjepe by Democratic Alliance Provincial Leader Jacques Smalle alleging forced removals without a court order on Saturday and concern expressed to Polokwane Executive Mayor Freddy Greaver during the weekend conference of the African National Congress (ANC) in Peter Mokaba region. Chuene added that the mayor would first want to engage all concerned parties before continuing with the relocation and could not provide a time frame for when it would resume. Kobola said after the process was stopped on the weekend community members took it upon themselves to rebuild his house at the junction of cross roads in the centre of Extension 78, a spot they chose for him as one of their leaders. He expressed the belief that God gave him that stand. He was adamant that he was not taking his shack back to where he came from. If the municipality in the end ruled that he was on the wrong stand he would simply move to the stand allocated to him, he conceded. Life on the other side of the road brought more bearable living conditions, including temporary sanitation and water to a less congested hotspot. On his doorstep a hole signified the spot for one of several temporary ablution arrangements that dotted the landscape. There were also enough taps, Kobola pointed out. Leaving behind the two women the opportunity presented itself to meet a mother of two who was positioned on a stone a few metres away while breastfeeding. She explained that she was awaiting the material for her home to be delivered from Disteneng. Opposite the gravel stretch Mr Jonathan Mudzuli and his wife, Violet, were occupied in putting up their shack of corrugated iron which they relocated themselves on Sunday. Where they barely had a perimeter around their shack back in Disteneng they now claimed ownership of a stand of 264m² in size, Kobola pointed out. Further up on the slope Ms Merriam Botabota exclaimed how happy she was to have been able to escape Disteneng that was hovering in the distance. Compared to her old house in Disteneng, the space offered by her new stand in Extension 78 heralded better living conditions. On her doorstep Mr Tumelo Ebert Muthubi was busy constructing an abode for his family. He reiterated concern expressed in interaction with anyone living in Disteneng; life there harbours the possibility of being killed without the slightest provocation.

Limpopo Police impounded a bus travelling from Zimbabwe to South Africa on Tuesday at 01:30 after officers at the Beit Bridge border post discovered a stash of explosives hidden inside an overhead luggage compartment. Provincial Police Spokesperson, Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi said the stockpile consisted of 13 blasting cartridges and 13 connector cap fuses. “Not one of the passengers has taken responsibility for the explosives; however, as routine all the passengers are currently being questioned while their luggage is thoroughly searched. No formal arrest has been made yet,” he said. Mulaudzi said the explosives are similar to those found in Ms Elita Sibanda’s possession last month. Sibanda was arrested for being in possession of 26 plastic cartridges and 100 detonators while travelling on a bus from Zimbabwe to South Africa. She has been charged for unauthorised importation as well as supply or possession of an explosive or incendiary device or part thereof and was due to appear on the Musina Magistrate’s Court yesterday (Wednesday).

Theft and break-ins escalate in Westenburg

The Police in Westenburg warned residents of a new tendency in the area where thugs pretending to be job seekers move around the streets during daytime with the modus operandi to break into deserted houses. Westenburg Police Spokesperson, Capt Mohlaka Mashiane confirmed that several break-ins have been reported over the past week and with the Festive Season approaching and people going away on holiday things can only get worse. “We urge residents to engage with the sector Police to obtain safety measures when they are on holiday or even at work during the day. Residents can also arrange with them to patrol the area regularly,” he said. Mashiane also warned parents to educate their children about the dangers of open pits and rivers. “It is the rainy season and Monday’s heavy rain is proof that rivers can flood their banks in a matter of minutes. Children should refrain from playing next to rivers and avoid crossing rivers after heavy rain. We haven’t had any reported cases of drowning yet,” he said.

Man in Ladanna raakgery ‘n Man is Sondag omstreek 20:00 in Bulawayostraat, Ladanna deur ‘n motoris raakgery. Volgens ‘n ooggetuie het die bestuurder van ‘n Toyota Conquest, wat vermoedelik onder die invloed van alkohol was, ‘n voetganger naby die spoedwal raakgery. “Ons het dadelik die nooddienste ontbied. Terwyl nooddienspersoneel op die toneel besig was om die beseerde voetganger te stabiliseer, het die bestuurder se beweerde vriende opgedaag en ons het gesien hoe hulle ‘n koelhouer uit die kattebak haal. Die bestuurder het kort daarna in ‘n ander voertuig geklim en van die toneel gevlug,” sê die ooggetuie wat verkies om anoniem te bly. Westenburg polisiewoordvoerder, kapt Mohlaka Mashiane het die voorval bevestig en het gesê ‘n saak van roekelose en nalatige bestuur word ondersoek.

Storm beskadig kliniek ‘n Deel van die Mutale Health Centre in Vhembe se dak is Sondag tydens ‘n hewige storm deur sterk wind beskadig. Volgens die departement van gesondheid se woordvoerder, me Adele van der Linde is die dak van die badkamers, die tydelike kantore en die kraamsaal afgeruk. “Niemand is in die voorval beseer nie, maar die kliniek kan nou glad nie swanger pasiënte help nie. Hulle word na nabygeleë klinieke verwys en die wat ernstige hulp nodig het, is na die Donald Fraser Hospitaal in Sibasa verwys. Buitepasiënte word steeds by die kliniek gehelp,” sê sy. Die skade aan die gebou is nog nie bekend nie, maar Van der Linde sê die departement sal eersdaags met herstelwerk begin.

Ses verdagtes weer in hof Twee van die ses verdagtes wat van poging tot moord, verkragting, huisbraak en die besit van ‘n ongelisensieerde vuurwapen en ammunisie aangekla is nadat hulle na bewering in Junie verlede jaar twee meisies in DieMeerstraat oorval en verkrag het, is weer aangekeer nadat hulle versuim het om vroeër vanjaar vir hul hofverskyning op te daag. Mnre Frans Matekana en Lucky Mailula is ‘n week nadat hul foto’s in die media verskyn het, in hegtenis geneem. Matekana en Mailula sou na verwagting saam met hul medebeskuldigdes, mnre David Thole, Stanley Manephapephe, Benny Lenny Malatjie en Marlon Mabitsela gister (Woensdag) in die Seshego landdroshof op die aanklagte gepleit het.

conomic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Leader Julius Malema is not entertaining a plea bargain with the State because upholding his innocence is paramount. After Monday’s court appearance when the case was postponed to September next year his lawyer, Mr Tumi Mokwena told Polokwane Observer his client maintained his innocence. In the meantime Malema is expected back in court next Thursday for the outcome of representations to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to have the charges against him dropped. Monday’s court proceedings were preceded by a wave of red berets sweeping through the city since the previous evening when they met for a night vigil. While his supporters congregated a block up from the court building in the main street from early Monday morning, Malema appeared before Mr Justice Moroa Tsoka for the case against him and two of his four co-accused, Messrs Lesiba Gwanga and Kagisho Dichabe, to be postponed to 30 September next year. The trial has been put on the roll until 31 October. Malema arrived at court after reportedly writing an exam paper towards a degree which he is currently studying for. Upon his exit from court Malema moved to an open lot opposite the Polokwane Police Station to address a crowd that grew in numbers since the arrival of the first toyi-toying contingent that painted Polokwane a customary EFF red. The contingent arrived in the central business district (CBD) from a venue on the outskirts of town where they had gathered the previous evening for a night vigil with a midnight address by

It was learnt that the supporter base did not only hail from Limpopo but also elsewhere in the country. On Monday the large crowd was entertained by performers and speakers. Among them was Mr Daniel Sello who, dressed in an outfit adorned with strips of animal skin, carried copies of the Bible and claimed that Malema was his last-born. Addressing his audience on Monday, Malema - dressed in a dark suit, white shirt and an EFF-red tie - said he did not take their support for granted and that it carried him through. He undertook to never betray his supporters and that he would never steal from them. “I don’t steal from the poor. My family doesn’t have a criminal record. I’m not going to be the black sheep of the family. They accused me because they are failing to match my thinking capacity.” He concluded by saying “Never be ashamed to wear a red beret.”

Cosatu march diverts Polokwane traffic >> Demand to prevent public servants, families to conduct business with State >> Members of affiliates of trade federation join in what was part of countrywide campaign

YOLANDE NEL >>observer.yolande@gmail.com A demand to prevent public service workers and representatives and their families from doing business with the State and its entities as a measure to curb fraud and corruption was one of 24 issues raised with Premier Stan Mathabatha when Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) Provincial Secretary Dan Sebabi informed him of the contents of a memorandum handed over on behalf of 180 000 members in Limpopo during a march that diverted traffic in Polokwane’s Central Business District (CBD) for the better part of last Thursday. The Premier’s Office was the last stop on the route that started with copies of the

memorandum first being handed to representatives of the Department of Transport, the South African Local Government Association (Salga) and Great North Transport (GNT). A copy of the memorandum to the Department of Labour was also dealt with at the Premier’s Office. The march saw some 3 000 members of affiliates of the trade federation joining in what was part of a countrywide campaign that ran from Tuesday to Thursday, making known Cosatu’s take on issues of concern. It followed a resolve by the eleventh national congress of Cosatu to embark on a radical programme of action

in support of workers’ legitimate demands. The national campaign focussed on eight demands entailing the scrapping of e-tolls and an end to the privatisation of roads, the provision of affordable, accessible and efficient public transport, bringing to end the apartheid spatial development by constructing houses close to workplaces, an urgent addressing of the crisis in the public health and education systems, a living wage for all workers with a statutory minimum wage, the banning of labour brokers and enforcing labour laws which safeguard decent working conditions and security of employment, the scrapping of the Employment Tax Incentive Bill and the ending of the scourge of corruption in the public and private sectors. The Limpopo memo further addressed, among others, the fight for the establishment of a labour court in the new court building in Polokwane, the outsourcing as well as privatisation, casualisation and agentisation of the state, the phasing out of shacks and the bucket system as well as awarding of title deeds before the 2014 elections, lifting of the moratorium on mining activities, the take-over of Kutama-Sinthumule private prison outside Makhado by the State and the review of market related residential rental rates with the view to have it reversed as per Public Service Act. The last demand was for the immediate payment of all outstanding benefits due to public service workers, including overtime and performance bonuses.

he Department of Health and Social Development has singled out the areas which impact heaviest on its core service delivery, as reflected by the negative audit outcomes it recently received from the AuditorGeneral, and intends to address these

and other areas in order not to repeat the negative audit results. MEC Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba, addressing a media interactive session on 14 November, said the department has made serious interventions since the outcomes were made known. She named the problem areas to include medicine supply, equipment, technology and infrastructure development and maintenance. She then highlighted the intervention initiatives that they have taken in the almost four months since she took over from her predecessor, Dikeledi Magadzi. These include addressing staff placement and training; appointing management staff; employing alternative procurement means to ensure adequate medicine and surgical

Letsatsi-Duba also revealed that several committees have been established to assist in efforts towards achieving the envisaged positive audit outcomes. These include a contract management committee; consequence management committee and audit steering committee. She further said that the department has, in keeping abreast with the fast paced information technology era, improved on the department’s information communications systems to ensure better response to patient complaints, improve patient turnaround in hospitals and clinics and maintain a better record and filing system.

Ander godsdiensgroepe word gevra om te help met hierdie tipe misbruik deur hul afkeur op die sterkste denkbare wyse, soos hulle mag goed vind, uit te spreek. Ons kan dink hoe ander godsdiensgroeperings sou voel indien hulle die tipe slegte godsdienstige behandeling moes ondergaan. Mag ons almal in die tyd van die naderende verkiesings die wysheid en die selfbeheersing vind om op so wyse op te tree wat ons land en geloof waardig is.”

Aganang intends giving all households electricity by 2015 HERBERT RACHUENE >>herbert@mailbox.co.za Aganang Local Municipality is determined to have electrified all of the 33 918 households in the area by the end of 2015. This according to Municipal Spokesperson, Mr Malesela Maubane who, on Tuesday, confirmed that it was the firm intention of the municipality to electrify the remaining 1 936 households while 31 982 households already have electricity in their homes. A recently issued statement by the municipality revealed that the municipality’s 104 villages, with the exception of Kloesdam village and extensions which are new settlements. “A total of 4 688 impoverished households who have access to electricity further benefit from the Free Basic Energy (FBE) scheme, as they receive free 50 kWh electricity tokens monthly. These are households who have an income of R0 to R3 200 and are listed on the Municipality’s Indigent Register. Households are urged

to collect their electricity tokens regularly,” the statement read. It further stated that the municipality’s budget for the 2010/2011 financial year made provision for Free Basic Alternative Energy (FBAE) to households without access to electricity. “When the programme started in 2010, there were 350 beneficiaries, but in the current financial year (2013/2014) only 250 households are benefitting, mainly due to strides made in electrifying of households. FBAE beneficiaries receive a starter gel stove and lamp, further receiving top up gel and oil for the lamps over 11 months,” it read. The statement further reads that that projects of electrifying 628 households in village extensions in the current financial year are at the design stage. “These extensions are in among other villages Kalkspruit, Mars, Diana, Jupiter, Sebora, Vlakfontein, Rametlwana, Mahoai, Lonsdale, Mabopane, Kordon and Monyoaneng.

RC MYBURGH >>rc.observer@gmail.com Die provinsiale leier van die Vryheidsfront Plus (VF Plus), mnr Hannes Heyman was Saterdagaand op die N1 naby die Kranskop Toll Plaza in ‘n botsing betrokke maar het gelukkig slegs geringe nek- en rugbeserings opgedoen. Heyman is aan die einde van Oktober as provinsiale leier aangewys. Volgens sy vrou, Ria was hy na Polokwane onderweg toe ‘n motor van agter teen hom gebots het waarna sy (Heyman se) motor omgeslaan het. “Die persoon wat die botsing veroorsaak het, se motorband het met impak gebars. Omstanders wat my man gehelp het, het gesien hoe die persoon sy band vinnig omruil en die toneel verlaat, maar sy voertuig het by die tolhek die gees gegee en die polisie het hom vasgetrek,” sê sy. Heyman is dieselfde aand uit die hospitaal in Modimolle ontslaan.

towards road offenders. “This development will go a long way in demystifying a wrong perception that our officers only become visible during the Transport Month and Arrive Alive campaign periods. As we get closer to the Festive Season we call upon all road users to be vigilant, to obey the rules and help to save lives,” Masoga is quoted to have said in a recent press release. Lehlogonolo further advised motorists not to be tempted to offer bribes to traffic officials but to rather report officers who may solicit bribes from them. “Our determination to fight fraud and corruption within the traffic police force remains unshaken,” he said.

Munisipale bestuurder staar misdaadklag in die gesig RC MYBURGH >>rc.observer@gmail.com Die burgerregte organisasie, AfriForum Mookgophong-tak het Dinsdag ‘n klag van rioolstorting by dié dorp se polisiestasie teen die munisipale bestuurder, mnr Peter Magwala gelê. “Rioolstorting is ʼn misdaad en AfriForum gaan nie toelaat dat munisipaliteite wetteloos optree nie. Ons het foto’s en briewe aan die munisipaliteit gestuur wat al jare van die probleem bewus is maar steeds nie opgelos is nie. Ons doen ʼn beroep op inwoners om rioollekkasies te identifiseer en kinders van die stortingsterreine weg te hou,” het AfriForum se organiseerder, mnr Morné Mostert gesê. Mostert het telefonies aan Polokwane Observer gesê watertoetse toon dat die Escherichia coli (E.coli)-vlakke een duisend keer hoër as die toegelate hoeveelheid is. “Mense se gesondheid en die natuurlike omgewing word ernstig hierdeur benadeel. Rioolstorting vind op verskeie plekke in die dorp plaas, maar die ergste geval is tussen die dorp en die informele nedersetting waar rou riool in die rigting van die dorp vloei.”  Volgens Mostert is die munisipale bestuurder oorhoofs in beheer van alle sake binne die munisipaliteit en moet dus verantwoordelikheid aanvaar. “In 2008 het ons reeds klagtes by die munisipaliteit ingedien en die probleem het tot nou toe net vererger. Dit is tyd dat mense verantwoordelikheid vir probleme aanvaar. Ons omgewing is kosbaar en die gemeenskap sal alles doen om te verseker dat die probleem opgelos word,” het AfriForum takvoorsitter, mnr Phillip van Staden in ‘n persverklaring gesê. Hy het verder gesê dat AfriForum met verskeie waterverwante aksies teen die munisipaliteit besig is om die grondwetlike regte van die gemeenskap af te dwing. Magwala en die Mookgophong Munisipaliteit se kommunikasiedepartement kon nie vir kommentaar bereik word nie.

The staff of the UFO outlet consist of Mss Johanna Sedibane (Sales Consultant), Shirley Pretorius (Administration), Messrs Johannes Kekana (General Assistant), Llewellyn Knight (Manager), Mss Chantelle Durrheim (Assistant Manager), Mpho Mashanzhe (Sales Consultant) and Mr Lesiba Makgeta (General Assistant).

Peaceful Festive Season from UFO MARIËTTE SNYDER >> mariette.observer@gmail.com The United Furniture Outlets (UFO) store in Savannah Mall first opened its doors in July 2011 but because they are part of 20 stores nationwide, their outstanding reputation preceded them long before. They specialise in a wide range of local and imported household furniture supplied only by leading manufacturers. UFO’s product range and exclusive lines offer consumers product differentiation at affordable prices. These well-known brands include Restonic, Genessi, Simmons, Grafton Everest, Bella Ducci and Mario Cellini. Mr Llewellyn Knight, Manager at UFO Savannah Mall said UFO stands for ‘out of this world products at down to earth prices’ and that is exactly what they offer. They are proud to be one of the fastest growing independent furniture retailers in South Africa and are up to date with the latest trends in the industry. Knight sees himself as an interior decorator and, by personally visiting the homes of clients,

he offers that little bit extra to ensure that his clients get exactly what they need. “I assist any client with tips ranging from their choice of furniture to decorating their living space,” Knight explained. He is more than willing to share his extensive experience in the furniture industry to ensure customer satisfaction. UFO delivers in and around Limpopo and will do whatever it takes to get the customer what they require. Knight said at UFO they understand the value of a customer and pride themselves on providing customers with service excellence, a variety of high quality, value for money furniture and giving customers an unforgettable retail shopping experience. “You can be sure to find furniture for your living room, bedroom, dining room and even for outdoor areas. Visit us in the banking mall and feast your eyes on the stunning wall units, plasma stands, chairs, a wide range of home accessories and coffee tables,” he added. Knight and his staff would like to wish their customers a peaceful Festive Season and invite everyone to visit them for special deals.

Savannah Mall will become home to one of the city’s leading leather and luggage outlets when Lu Bag opens its doors in the mall in December. Ms Debbie Mouton, a well-known business woman in town and owner of Lu Bag in Mall of the North said by opening the 90 m² store on the upper level of Savannah Mall at entrance two, she affords clients the comfort of finding your ideal choice of luggage on your doorstep. They will stock leaders in the industry like Sissy Boy, Busby, Brando, Serenade, Samsonite, Polo, Cellini and Antler to name but a few. Mouton said when people think of a luggage store, the first thing that comes to mind is travelling. “At Lu Bag we offer so much more. We stock handbags, back-to-school needs, beautiful leather jackets and much more. Once you set foot in our store, you will find it impossible to leave,” said Mouton. Mouton explains that she opened the first Lu Bag store in 2008 in Standard Bank Square. She saw the opportunity of a lifetime when Mall of the North opened their doors to the public in 2011 and decided to move the existing store to Mall of the North where she will be able to serve more customers with exclusive and stunning pieces. She sees Lu Bag opening in Savannah Mall Some of the items that will be stocked at Lu Bag in Savannah Mall.

as a big step towards not only affording her loyal and trusted staff the opportunity to be promoted, but to carry on her good business name in Polokwane. She invites everyone not to miss out on the many opening specials and gifts with every purchase as the store will be open for Christmas shopping. “Be sure to visit the store that not only offers the best quality products in town, but who always puts their clients first, accommodating your every bag need. They also do repairs on any leather and luggage items at a fraction of the price. They will also order any item not on their shelves and their items has a 12 to 24 month warrantee and or guarantee as per the supplier’s specifications. Be sure to visit Lu Bag and be the first to buy quality items for your loved ones this year.

Networking activities crucial to SME development and growth

>> Networking is one of the most useful ways for start-ups to build a business >> Fellow entrepreneurs can share valuable information

Martin Stavast, Area Manager for Business Partners Limited.

B

uilding relationships with the right individuals is key to the success of a business, due to the long lasting and powerful effect a favourable relationship can bring about. This is according to Marten Stavast, Business Partners Limited Area Manager, who says that networking is one of the most useful ways for startups to build a business and increase their profile in their respective industries. Stavast explains that for the self-employed, building long-lasting business relationships and partnerships is significantly more important than what most business owners believe. “When starting a new business, it can often feel like you have no time for anything, but entrepreneurs need to take a long-term approach and invest in networking and researching groups that might be relevant to their business. The strengthening of these relationships will potentially result in direct business referrals, as well as create a sustainable support network.” He says that creating channels to share business know-how is critical in helping business owners succeed and sharing business knowledge and experience contributes to the stability and growth of a growing SME. “Ensure that you get involved with business councils and other networking groups, as you’ll be able to ‘mingle’ with others going through the same process as you. Business owners may also find that fellow entrepreneurs can share valuable information on how they are going about building their business,” he advises. Stavast explains that as with other business activities, a strategy should be put

in place for networking as it is a business process like any other which should be attended to, but is often neglected. Stavast offers the following pointers to help business owners when it comes to networking activities: • Approach networking for what it is – a crucial business system like your accounting system, human resources system, or production system. It means that you have to spend some time thinking about it, working on it and maintaining it. • Define the business’s target groups – if you don’t, you’ll end up chasing your own tail. How widely your net is thrown depends on the business. For example, a tourism business may want to include an entire country’s networks and sectors such as travel agents, while a niche technology business may choose to start with a much narrower group of specialised suppliers, clients and business associates. • Networking only among industry peers is not wide enough. It is inadequate for a printing business, for example, to limit its networking only to the local printers association. Seek out clients and business opportunities upstream, downstream and adjacent to your sector. • Start with a list of people who are in your network already – your existing clients, suppliers and business associates, but be sure to add new people, or whole categories of people that you want to target. This is just the start a healthy business network has new contacts coming in all the time, as well

as having old ones removed as their relevance fades. You don’t need the latest customer relationship management software. These tools can be handy, but if money is tight you can effectively manage a large network with an ordinary spreadsheet using simple categorisation tools such as colour coding to prioritise contacts. Relationships take time to develop and are built on genuine interest and mutual benefit. The key is regular contact, but it does not have to be monotonous. Interactions can vary from a call to say thank you, to introducing a useful contact, sending an interesting article or referring a client (and even asking for advice is a good way to make someone feel important). Don’t leave these things to spontaneity - plan and schedule them.   Clean up your contact list regularly, not only removing redundant entries, but reprioritising each contact so that you invest most of your time and energy in the most important ones. Internet-based social networking is important as a medium of contact, and be sure to maintain your presence on sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn as you would your appearance – neat and fresh.  But you don’t have to “hang around” there. True business networking happens face to face. Think carefully about your business networking calendar so that you don’t waste your time attending events that yield little. But don’t be afraid to experiment to see which events work for you. Get out there!

Opel Astra here to stay >> Responsive and efficient engines are added >> The Astra’s offers eighteen storage compartments RC MYBURGH >>rc.observer@gmail.com

T

he new Opel Astra sedan recently arrived in the city. To share in the excitement of a manufacturer that revitalises its brand by introducing dynamic new vehicles to the market, hurry to Westvaal Polokwane now to meet eye to eye with the new Astra. The Astra sedan has dynamic looks and it connects the driver to the road through great steering and a superb suspension. Responsive and efficient engines are added to the range which results in an exhilarating driving experience. The Opel Astra is here to stay as it offers a sporty hatchback as well as the newly launched sedan. If you need a vehicle with head turning stylish design, outstanding comfort equipment, exceptional driving dynamics, fuel efficient turbo and state of the art safety features the Astra sedan couldn’t have arrived any sooner. The range offers a 1,4 and 1,6 litre engine in either the Essentia or Cosmo model. The 1,4 Essentia is also available with automatic transmission. Both engines are equipped with a turbo resulting in the 1,4-litre to generate 103 kW of power and 200 Nm of torque while the 1,6-litre turbocharged Cosmo performs at 132 kW and 230 Nm. These two models respectively offer a combined fuel consumption

of 5,9 and 6,8 litres of fuel per 100 km. The Opel design team gave the new Astra a very stylish and sleek silhouette with gentle roofline arcs over the passenger area. It descends in a seamless sweep through the steeply raked rear screen to the sculpted aerodynamic lip at the end of the short rear deck. And because the raked C-pillar stretches so far back into the rear deck area, it visually conceals the size of the trunk in an elegant fashion. The feature line running through the door handles becomes more defined towards the rear, creating a muscular shoulder effect below the base of the C-pillar and the rear deck. PHOTO: INTERNET

Become part of a revolutionary brand and view the newly launched Opel Astra sedan at Westvaal Polokwane.

The design of the tail lights echoes those of other Astra models, and the subtle crease which links them adds width and avoids any impression of bulkiness. The exterior design is only a fraction of what Opel really wants to achieve with this new model as the interior tells a story of superb materials used to design a comfortable cabin filled with gadgets and safety features. Among others is the Astra’s offering of eighteen storage compartments which include door pockets front and rear with bottle holders, a driver’s storage bin, cup holders, a large glove box, and front and rear centre armrests with closed storage compartments. The Astra is not only equipped with

state-of-the-art active safety systems, but also protects its occupants with exemplary passive safety technologies. Robust bumpers and highly efficient energy absorption systems deal with minor impacts while the bumper beams are precisely positioned for maximum protection in car to car low speed impacts. It comes with a five year/120 000 km warranty, five year roadside assist, five year unlimited km corrosion warranty and five year/90 000 km service plan. Visit Westvaal Polokwane at 86 Landros Maré Street to view the new Astra. It is also said to keep an eye on their showroom as their product range will expand soon.

How to keep track of property options

W

hile finding the ideal home may sound like a relatively easy process, it may take a little more time and effort than buyers expect, especially if it’s not handled in the correct manner. Mr Adrian Goslett, Chief Executive Officer of RE/MAX of Southern Africa said there are methods that buyers can use to reduce the stress of finding a property and assist them in finding their perfect home in a fairly short period time. In a recent press release Goslett noted that one of the biggest challenges that most buyers face when starting out on their property buying journey is knowing where to start when sifting through the vast volumes and wide variety of properties that are available to them. “Very few buyers actually purchase the first

home that they view, and often it is the viewing of random show homes that can add to the buyer’s confusion and make the decision that much harder,” he said. Not having a plan and simply looking for as many show houses as possible can make it difficult to keep tabs on what the buyer has seen, what they liked about the various properties and for what price they were selling. Setting out with a clear plan can simplify the matter and make the ultimate purchasing decision a lot easier. He noted that regardless of how urgently the buyer may need to find a home, it is best not to rush the decision. Buyers should rather take some time and systematically work through small numbers of properties at a time. “Taking things slowly and viewing only a

ties on any given day. A reputable, good agent that specialises in the area that the buyer is interested in will have a wide variety of listings on their books, but will be able to narrow down the search and viewings based on the information and criteria that the buyer has provided them. Doing this will save the buyer massive amounts of time that would have been spent on viewing properties that don’t fit into their criteria. Goslett provided ways to keep tabs on the various properties that have been viewed in order to compare them: • Buyers should make notes on each and every property that is viewed. With today’s technology this can be done on an iPad, smartphone or the traditional pen and notebook. The pros and cons of each property should be logged, listing likes and dislikes and features, as it is easy to become confused as to which home offered which feature. • Most cell phones will have a camera so document the homes that are viewed. Use your cell phone to take photos of the inside and outside of the property. This is particularly important when you find aspects of a home that are especially appealing. • Only keep records of properties that you are really interested in. • If there is anything you are unsure of, talk to the agent who showed you the property. They will have a record of the homes that they have showed you and will have a list of each property’s features. Agents will know their listings and will be able to provide guidance through the often complex process of finding the right house.

few properties at a time will help the buyer to retain as much information as possible about each of the properties they have seen. Buyers that are looking for a property urgently may want to rush the process by utilising various estate agents and seeing as many listings and attending as many show houses as they can in one day. While this may give them an idea of what properties are out there, it will also make it impossible for them to keep track of which one of the houses appealed to them the most, which agent showed them the house and why it appealed to them in the first place,” Goslett said. He advised that buyers should ideally only use one estate agent that they feel comfortable with and view no more than four proper-

Chante Whelan is using her talent to benefit children.

“Se lebelele thoko”

KESHIA J V RENSBURG >> keshia.observer@gmail.com Chante Whelan feels like the luckiest girl in the world after she was asked by Childline to write and perform the song for their campaign against child abuse, titled Don’t look away. This 16-year-old singer has been honing her talents from the tender age of three where she was often found in the kraal singing to the cows with a hairbrush as a microphone. “My love for singing has been constantly evolving through the years but it was only in 2012 that I started taking things more seriously,” she said. It was this year that Chante decided to get professional training, ensuring her passion could turn into more than just a hobby. She started taking singing lessons through the Rock Hard Music group, who with patience and perseverance turned her into a rising star and assisted her in completing the mammoth task of writing, performing and recording the song, ‘Se lebelele thoko’ which will from 22 November be known as Childline’s song against child abuse. The final step before the recording is completed is to add Jacob Zuma’s voice to the song. “We have contacted the President’s office and requested he say something inspiring and uplifting that we can add to the end of the song, accompanied by the melody we have already recorded,” she explained. This has definitely been a very lucky year for this high school learner who attends Hoërskool Pietersburg. Not only was she chosen to perform the song but she was also contacted by the entertainment department of Meropa Casino & Entertainment World to be the starting act for future shows and well-known artists they have lined up for 2014. The Suikerbos Orkes has also asked her to form a part of their shows and do a pre-show for all their planned events for 2014. This might sound overwhelming but there’s more. The organisers of the yearly music carnival held on the beaches of Kwazulu-Natal have invited Whelan to take part in their December line-up. If all goes according to plan, fans of Chante can see her in five years time performing on the Skouspel-stage with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. “My goal is to not only make it in the South African music industry but to spread my wings even further and tackle international stardom headon. I would love to make a name for myself in the international music industry singing pop songs and ballads. Nobody really ever dreams of being a highly successful karaoke star, I don’t want to sound like anybody or follow in someone else’s footsteps. I want to be a musician; a musician means so much more to the world than a singer,” she insisted.

Mariëtte Snyder >> mariette.observer@gmail.com Mall of the North is in the process of completing a massive rollout campaign to revolutionise movie-viewing by converting their cinemas screens to the latest in digital technology in their six theatres. Mr Fiaz Mahomed, CEO of Ster-Kinekor Theatres in a press statement said that a new era in cinema viewing is now a reality. “We are spearheading the advancement of cinema viewing as we upgrade each one of our existing sites. In line with this national evolution, I am pleased to report that the full digital conversion of all six cinemas at one of our most popular sites in the north of the country, Mall of the North has been completed for the enjoyment of all our loyal movie-goers in this region. In addition to the digital upgrade, our movie-going audiences can catch their favourite blockbusters in larger-than-life 3D format. As part of the digital conversion at this site, we have transformed one of our theatres to accommodate 3D projection,” Mahomed stated. He added that 3D is now an integral part of the cinema offering. It is what

More movie enjoyment at Ster-Kinekor movie-goers expect and what they demand – and now customers at Mall of the North can enjoy this incredible movie experience too. The statement further read that with the latest technological advancements, the entire cinema viewing experience is undergoing a profound change. Picture quality is heightened while the state-of-the-art surround sound greatly enhances the overall viewing experience, as each cinema now comes standard with the very latest projection and audio equipment. Upgrading the cinemas brings with it yet another plus for movie-lovers. “We already screen blockbuster releases on the same day as their international release date. However, the ease of digital projection will give us the opportunity to expand this to medium and more niche film titles. Digital technology has profoundly changed the face of the industry, ensuring that our customers ‘see it best’ and ‘see it first’ on our big screens,” he stated. “It is an exciting evolution in cinema in South Africa, and I am excited to be a part of the dedicated and professional team that is making it happen,” Mahomed concluded.

Die wenresep het me Dottie Pinn, skakelbeampte van die Suid-Afrikaanse Bloeddiens (SANBD) gevolg om persone wat klinieke by hul werksplekke reël vir hul ondersteuning te bedank. Me Kwena Selemela van Virgin Active in Thornhill het nie op haar laat wag nie en gaste aangemoedig om saam met haar op maat van die mu-

siek litte los te maak. Die geleentheid is Donderdag by Fusion Boutique Hotel gehou waartydens Pinn ook ‘n video oor die bloeddiens en die noodsaaklike rol wat hul vertolk, vertoon het. Almal is na die tyd met ‘n ete bederf en talle het reeds ingestem om opnuut volgende jaar hul ondersteuning aan die bloeddiens te gee. Pinn bedank die gemeenskap vir hul betrokkenheid om lewens te red en sê dat hulle slegs suksesvol is omdat Polokwane ‘n stad met ‘n hart vir ander is.

Toks en Tjops-uitsending by PHS ’n genotvolle aand Mariëtte Snyder >> mariette.observer@gmail.com

V

rydagaand se regstreekse uitsending van Toks en Tjops by die Hoërskool Pietersburg (PHS) was ‘n besondere gebeurtenis vir die skool omdat Alex van Dyk, graad 12-leerder van die skool een van die spesiale gaste was. Lede van die Celebrity Cycle-fietstoer wat deur die Jumping Kids Prosthetic Fund gereël is en prosteses aan kinders voorsien, was ook deel van die uitsending. Benewens Vlok Celliers, Helgard Müller, Breyten Paulse en Isak Davel wat deel van die fietstoer was, was sanger, Riaan Grobler, Hardus Geldenhuys, PHS se eerste rugbyspankaptein en skoolhoof, Willie Schoeman ook deel van die spesiale gaste. Alex, een van 40 kinders wat ‘n prostese van die organisasie ontvang het, het trots met sy twee nuwe bene op die verhoog verskyn en aan die program deelgeneem. Me Anne-Marié Schoeman, skakelbeampte van die skool sê die funksie is gehou om geld vir Alex se prostese sowel as vir hul Astro-hokkiebaan, wat in aanbou is, in te samel. Sy sê dat PHS baie blootstelling met die uitsending

ontvang het bedank almal wat tot die suksesvolle aand bygedra het. Toks en Tjops is ‘n informele kykNET-program met Toks van der Linde, Breyten Paulsen (albei oud-Springbokrugbyspelers) en Janina Oberholzer wat oor die nuutste sportgebeure gesels, het eersteklas-vermaak aan die sowat 340 gaste gebied wat tot laataand om die braaivleisvure gekuier het.

Local government hosts series of campaigns RC Myburgh >>rc.observer@gmail.com The South African Local Government Association (Salga) together with other entities embarked on a series of awareness campaigns throughout the province in the light of World Aids Day to be celebrated on 1 December and the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence campaign set to run from 25 November to 10 December. Officials and representatives from the department of Roads and Transport; Health and Social Development; Vhembe District Municipality, Musina Local Municipality and the International Organisation for Migration will establish a delegation that is to engage with residents of the province in addressing issues on HIV/Aids, tuberculoses (TB), migration, and sexual and genders based violence. A press statement issued by Salga Communication and Marketing Officer, Mr Thipa Selala informs that the campaigns will target truckers and migrants, the key populations identified in the National Strategic Plan (NSP) for HIV/Aids,

Sexual Transmitted Infections and TB. Also targeted will be cross border traders, border officials and general populations. “Although Vhembe District has the lowest HIV/Aids prevalence, Musina sub-district is the highest with 17,2% and is faced with high volumes of road transport truckers, regular and irregular migrants, sexual violence along the Limpopo border and transient population.” The campaigns will also offer people the opportunity to be tested for HIV/Aids, TB, diabetes, hypertension and cancer and be informed on the prevention of mother to child transmission, medical male circumcision, malaria, health and hygiene services and youth services. “We are also aiming to create awareness on World Aids Day and the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Abuse as well as increasing the uptake on HIV counselling and testing and to promote wellness and healthy lifestyles among people. The first campaign was already hosted on Saturday in Weipe. The next campaign is scheduled to be conducted on Monday at Beit Bridge and on Sunday 8 December at Pontdrift.

Despite falling agonisingly short to the rampant Free State Stars on Saturday Polokwane City Football Club Spokesperson, Patrick Baloyi is adamant that the club can reach the top eight bracket of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) before the Christmas break. City suffered their sixth loss of league after they were beaten 1-0 by Free State Stars at Bethlehem’s Goble Park. Their narrow defeat puts Bobbie Solomon’s men in the 14th position of the league with eight points after 10 games. In their previous encounters City managed to beat PSL big spenders Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town. In their last five matches before the Christmas break City will battle it out with the league title contenders Kaizer Chiefs, Moroka Swallows, Super Sport United, Mpumalanga Black Aces and University of Pretoria. “It is going to be tough playing against those teams, but again anything can happen in football. We have a good team that is determined to go far. We are confident that we will finish the league in the top eight bracket before the Christmas break,” Baloyi said. He also mentioned they will be going in the transfer market in January to bolster their team for the second round of the season. “It is important to strengthen the team because the league will be tougher and competitive in the second round,” Baloyi said.

The BB Motor Group was one of the proud sponsors of the tour that ended at Hoërskool Pietersburg (PHS) on Friday. Part of the funds raised during the event will be used to provide PHS

learner, Alex van Dyk with prosthetics after his horrific accident earlier this year. The cyclists’ journey started at Meerhof School on 11 November and ended five days later in Polokwane in a bid to raise in excess of R500 000 for Jumping Kids. The celebrities pedalled the last leg of the route from the Protea Hotel Ranch Resort to PHS on Friday. All of them expressed their satisfaction afterwards on completing the long journey for the benefit of the children.

Baroka Football Club continued with their amazing run in the National First Division (NFD) when they clobbered a star studded African Warriors 2-0 on Sunday at the old Peter Mokaba Stadium to move from the 10th position to the 8th position of the log. Hlabane Kutumela and Kgotso Shabela scored for the GaMphahlele outfit in the first and the second half of the match. The NFD debutants showed resilience and zeal with emphatic wins against FC Cape Town and Maluti FET College in their previous encounters. “We are happy with the results and the overall performance of

the team in the league. We have got a lot of youngsters who are enjoying their football. They have been given a platform to showcase their talent and they are making use of every opportunity. Credit again must go to the management for their proper planning and the leadership,” Baroka Head Coach, Sello Chokoe said. He further pointed that they hope to continue with the same form when they travel to Cape Town tomorrow (Friday) to take on Chippa United. “Look, Chippa is a good team with a lot of experience. They have played in the Premier Soccer League so it is going to be a huge task for us but we are prepared for the duel,” Chokoe said.

Matuli FET made history in the South African football by becoming the first South African team in the third division to beat Confederation of Africa finalist Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup earlier this year.

Since their promotion to the National First Division in August, Maluti has been in superb form. In their last nine matches they have managed to win three matches and draw four. They are currently in the 5th position of the log while Leopards are in the 10th position. “We are aware of their performance and what they did earlier this year. We respect them but we are well prepared for the match. We told the players that we have to fight like leopards this season in order to return to the Premier Soccer League,” Ramunenyiwa said.

The only rider that is not from Polokwane is Konrad Viljoen, but he has a strong link to the city as his wife attended Capricorn High School. The rest of the group is made up of the technical team of Jacques Botha, Leon Weterman, Leon Meulman and André Senekal. The team had their first full practice session at the Delmas track over the weekend and according to Robinson are ready to give their best in two weeks time. Although the team experienced a slight hiccup during practise when one of their members had an accident, the bike remained unscathed and practise proceeded smoothly afterwards with everybody getting a feel of the powerful machine. Erasmus explained that the team has the right motorbike, superb riders, pit crew and the strategy team to win the race this year. “During endurance races it is important to ride consistently and smoothly. We have the right bike for the race as the BMW HP 2 is fuel efficient and not so heavy on tyre wear. It is a marathon race and not a sprint so the key element is consistency over a long period of time.” Robinson added that most of the team is used to sprint races so they have had to adapt to giving 80% over a long period of time and not 100% for a short period.

According to Limpopo Impalas Cricket (LIC) media liaison officer, Sedibu Mohlaba the score could go down in the record books as the lowest score ever achieved by a senior club cricket team. He added that the scorecard has been forwarded to Cricket South Africa (CSA) to do research on whether it is the lowest total ever recorded in an official cricket match. LIC is waiting for a response from CSA that would put Aces in the Guinness Book of Records for bowling out the opposition for the lowest ever total.

For the record, Stars won the toss and elected to bat first and recorded two runs all out in only 5,2 overs. Barend Jacobsz achieved the remarkable bowling figures of six wickets for no runs in 2,2 devastating overs. Although he failed to get a hat-trick, Jacobsz took four Stars wickets in his second over for an outstanding bowling achievement. His opening bowling partner, Henk Holtzhausen took the remaining two wickets to fall for only one run after three overs. Stars scored only one run off the bat, with the other run being a leg bye. Two of the Stars batsmen failed to pad up in time leading to the dismal performance by a team that was once rated among the top three cricket clubs in Limpopo. Aces captain, Andy Müller scored the winning runs with the second ball of their innings to complete a memorable victory for his side.

At the media launch on Tuesday, Greaver announced that he has already secured R150 000 towards bursaries for next year from the company responsible for the water disruptions in the city last week when the water pipe supplying water from the reservoirs to the suburbs of Polokwane was damaged. Not to be outdone by the mayor, CEO of the Blue Bulls Company, Barend van Graan announced that the BBRU will add another R50 000 to the amount, with the result that R200 000 is already available for new bursaries in 2014 even before the match kicks-off in February 2014. Van Graan explained that the Blue Bulls in Pretoria have close links with Polokwane and the present three year contract for warm-up Super 15 matches at the Peter Mokaba Stadium with the municipality will end after the Stormers match. Both parties however agreed that the present good working relationship should lead to the renewal of the contract for the next three years. This means that the city’s rugby followers can be assured of warm-up Super 15 matches involving the Blue Bulls for the next four years. The matches also form part of the municipality’s Corporate Social Responsibility to provide bursaries for needy learners with sporting ability.

Local golfer and graduate of the Goose Academy at the Polokwane Golf Club, CJ du Plessis led from start to finish in recording his first victory at the ninth IGT Qualifying School tournament at a windy Services Golf Club in Pretoria last Wednesday. The 22-year-old playing in his first season as a professional shot a closing round of 70 to finish four shots ahead of fellow rookie, Johan de Beer and collected a cheque of R8 400 for his maiden pro victory. Du Plessis seized a six-shot lead after a second round of 65 on the par-72 Services golf course after a brilliant eight under par 64 in the first round. The Polokwane professional was one of the country’s top ranked amateur golfers in 2012 and failed to meet his expectations in his rookie season. But his first victory has reinforced his belief that it is just a matter of time and the reward of lots of hard work. “It is such a huge relief to win,” du Plessis explained afterwards. “It is much tougher on the professional circuit than I ever PHOTO: SUPPLIED

I came close a few times this year on the IGT Tour, but always blew it in the final round. This time I am proud that I took it all the way to the podium.” Du Plessis has been campaigning on the IGT and Sunshine Tour all season. In recent weeks, he posted some good results and made two cuts in succession on the Sunshine Tour. His earnings from the recent Vodacom Origins of Golf and BMG Classic have left him inside the top 100 on the Order of Merit. He added that he needs to qualify and make the cut in the upcoming South African Open and Alfred Dunhill tournaments to keep his tour card and the recent victory has given him lots of confidence as his first season draws to a close.

Multifaceted achiever ready for high school >> The Noordjie of the Year award is given to the best all-round student >> “My father is a teacher and this has always pushed me to make him proud” KESHIA J V RENSBURG >> keshia.observer@gmail.com

D

esiree Buys is only 13 years old and already she is raking in the medals and trophies, not just on an academic level but also in her sport of choice, acrobatics. The culmination of her primary school career came in the form of Pietersburg-North Primary School’s recent academic prize-giving where she was awarded as the Duxlearner, the Noordjie of the Year and also subject winner of Afrikaans First Additional Language, Natural Sciences, Technology, Life Orientation and Arts and Culture. Her list of achievements is not even near the end yet with head girl of 2013 being her biggest personal achievement for this year.

The Noordjie of the Year award is given to the best all-round student who has performed outstandingly in all aspects of her school career, which includes academics, sport, cultural achievements and attendance of functions like school sports days and evening functions and how much you do for your school. Buys explains that her academic achievements are thanks to the motivation and support of her family and the fact that she wakes up every morning at 04:00 to study and prepare herself for the school day that lies ahead. “The friendly and patient teachers are always willing to go the extra mile and make sure everything they teach us is understood.” Through her tough academic schedule she still finds time for her second passion, which is acrobatics. “I started doing acrobatics almost ten years ago. I’ve always loved it.” Her acrobatics teacher, Ms Joline Oosthuizen, says she is one of her best students, if not the best at the moment. “She is currently busy with her junior exams and is a mere five examinations short of becoming a qualified acrobatics trainer. She already helps with the coaching of the little ones and is seen by many students, many older than her, as a shining example of what you can

achieve through hard work. I have known her for many years and with a heart as big as hers and a mind set to achieve, big things lie ahead for her.” As the last born child in a family of three, this young girl who is more than a decade junior to her siblings who are seventeen and fourteen years her senior, attributes her academic success to the fact that she has always paid attention in class and has never stopped believing in herself. “My father is a teacher and this has always pushed me to make him proud, my mother has always helped me study and that makes a real difference as some children never have the type of guidance I’m blessed with.” Buys will be attending PEPPS College next year where she aims to keep the Noordjie flag flying high. Although extremely excited about starting a new challenge as a high school learner, she is still doing so with a heavy heart. “Noordskool is where my roots are buried and that’s where it will always remain.” Mr Attie Visagie, headmaster of Pietersburg-North Primary School says Buys is one of those learners who make him proud. “She is a great child, both academically and personally and we will definitely miss her and her beaming smile.”
