Children’s orphanage MBONGISENI MASEKO


abitat for Humanity, in partnership with People’s Environmental Planning (PEP) and Baphumelele Orphanage Home, recently renovated four child-headed shacks in RR Section in Site B. The shacks were insulated to maintain heat, concrete floors installed and the walls painted. The children are under the care of Baphumelele Orphanage Home. This was as a result of Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International, who made a call for all its partners to “lift [their] voice, [their] hands and [their] prayers and help raise awareness for the great need for safe, affordable shelters,” on World Habitat Day, which was on Monday, 2 October. “Our Habitat for Humanity network and partners observed the day with worldwide outreach to proclaim that inadequate housing is morally and socially unacceptable. The call was headed by the workers who volunteered their services during the Build Event Week. Patrick Kulati, the national director of Habitat for Humanity, said they also divided the rooms to give privacy to the children. “This is aimed at giving some level of dignity. The shacks were leaking when it rained and very hot in summer. The floors were not stable. The shacks were not even lockable. We hope what we have done will be helpful to them,” Kulati said. Pheliswa Xesi, for child headed- home at Baphumelele Orphanage Home, thanked the partners for making a difference in the lives of the children. “It is a great thing for the children. The living conditions were very bad and they could not afford to fix their shacks. The children have lot of challenges such as not having food to eat and clothes. Some are on treat-

“I am very happy. The condition of our shack was very bad. It was leaking and water was seeping under the floor. We sometimes run out of food. We depended on Baphumelele for food parcels. We do not even have a bed here,” she said.

Residents receive all-in-one aid MBONGISENI MASEKO

Nobuntu Mfengwana, community worker for Afrika Tikkun, checking blood pressure for Nolubabalo Mhasa, on Friday, in Mfuleni.


fuleni residents felt all the merrier after the welfare, police, home affairs, health and an NGO brought services to their door-step last Friday. The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) organised the outreach programme in partnership with the Department of Social Development, Department of Home Affairs, South African Police Services (SAPS), Department of Health and local Afrika Tikkun project. The event was aimed at ensuring that residents have access to services they need as some do not have money to travel to places where the offices are situated. The programme, which is set to hit different areas in future, was made possible after Bathabile Dlamini, the Minister of Social Development, discovered that some residents were struggling to access services because of lack of money. Sizwe Ndesi, from Afrika Tikkun, said the programme was beneficial to residents. “It is good... Some residents do not receive the social grant, because they do not have the necessary documents such as birth certificate or IDs (Identity Document). They do not even have money for travelling to get the documents,” Ndesi said. Captain Nomathemba Muavha, communication officer at Mfuleni Police Station,


said most residents approached their desk to do affidavits and certify documents. “It is a good thing to have all the departments under one roof, because residents do not have to travel for the services. Most residents that came to our desk want affidavits so they can apply for IDs and some

want to apply for social grant,” Muavha said. Dozens of residents used the opportunity to the best of their advantage. Some started queuing outside the gate at early hours of the morning. Nomalizo Gumada, 58, resident, said the

programme helped them. “I am happy for the help that I got here. I needed documents so I can apply for pension grant. I do not have any source of income and I depended on my neighbours for food. I am happy that they brought all the services to us here,” Gumada said.

Church opens self-sponsored computer lab MANDLA MAHASHE The third annual Slabbert Mzuvukile Steve Mbiza Lecture was a nostalgic gathering for his adherents, with a strong focus on the future. The event was hosted by the Revelation Church of God in their facility at Eyethu Mall in Khayelitsha. The late Mbiza is the father of Prophet Samuel Mbiza, aka Dr Radebe, founder of the church. Mbiza senior was lecturer and community leader who was remembered on the day. The day was also important for the church as it was the official opening of its computer lab at its facility. According to the church leaders, it was crucial for the church to give back to the community and assist the youngsters. “Two years ago a young boy was testifying in church about how being a member of the church turned his life around. I was moved by how he was determined to go back to school. He told me that he usually took the money meant for his lunch and spent it at the internet cafe to do research

work,” said Mbiza. He said he was moved by this and that was when he got the idea to open a computer lab in the church. The lab has 15 functioning computers and tablets with dedicated tutors to teach youngsters basic computer skills. “As you may all know that as a country we are way behind when it comes to technology so this is one of the ways we can get our children a boost in the right direction,” he said. The school partnered with UCT, Mbiza senior was a language lecturer at the university. Mbiza said that it took them a whole year to make the lab a reality and added that it was not just for children of the church. “It was difficult because we didn’t have a sponsor to fund us for this but we managed even though we were looking at 20 computers, we are happy with the 15. We also invite local children because this church is part of the community and this is one of our ways of making sure that the community benefits from having us around,” he said.

Dialogue sessions to raise issues MBONGISENI MASEKO


he Social Justice Coalition (SJC) has once again hosted a dialogue session between organisations to address issues related to the betterment of the life of residents in Khayelitsha. Held at the Isivivana Centre, the third annual Policing and Social Justice Dialogue series is aimed at bringing together various people to discuss issues faced by poor and working-class communities. Dali Weyers, Senior Researcher for Safety and Justice Programme for SJC, said the event engages on issues of crime and street lighting, including safety and security. Also up for discussion was the excessive use of force by the police against residents. The recommendations of the Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry also came up for discussion. “The campaign based on appropriate street lighting is successful. There is an additional R40 million that is set aside (by the City of Cape Town) for street lighting in Khayelitsha. We will continue having the dialogue,” Weyers said. Zwelinzima Vavi, General Secretary of the South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU), raised his concern that the culprit responsible for the murder of his nephew, Busisa Siziba,25, in 2014, is yet to be brought to book. Vavi said Khayelitsha is not the only area that is facing dire conditions regarding the safety of its inhabitants, but the country at large. “We are in a war, but not with other countries ... with ourselves, in the 2015/2016 financial year, about 18 683 people were killed. That was a 4.9% increase compared to the

Wiseman Mpepo, chairperson for SJC, speaking during the dialog, on Thursday, at Isivivana Centre, in khayelitsha. previous financial year. This means 51 people were killed every day. We are number two in the world when it comes to killings after Syria. The problems that we have will not be solved by the death penalty, but by improving our justice system. There is inequality even in our justice system. It is true that the thinking of hungry people is different. People who do not have dignity to lose, just do things out of frustration,” Vavi said. He also said the rate of convictions for cases such as rape, murder and burglary is very low in the country. Vavi also took a swipe at the Congress of South African Trade Unions(Cosatu),

which fired him as general secretary, in 2015, for taking part in march against state capture and corruption, last week. He said the union was no longer the same. Edna Ngwana, a resident of Site C, said she is tired of promises made by government offi-


cials. “The levels of crime are very high. Our children kill each other every day. They deal with drugs and alcohol abuse. There is nothing done to eradicate them, only promises,” Ngwana said.

Killing spree victims unclaimed MANDLA MAHASHE


ower Crossroads and Marikana informal settlement remains intense after 18 people were killed and another five injured in the past week. On Friday evening, two men entered a shebeen in Marikana and fatally shot people and left five others fighting for their lives. On Wednesday, about a week ago, seven people were killed in the area and it was reported that Friday’s massacre was revenge killing after some gang members were allegedly killed by community patrol men. Political figures poured into the area to ascertain what was really happening while community leaders struggled to identify the families of the dead. Albert Dladla, a Marikana community leader said that out of the 11 people who perished on Friday, only three families have been able to identify their next of kin. He said this during a meeting with local councillors, families of victims and the Western Cape MEC for Community Safety, Dan Plato. Dladla said that the majority of those killed were young people who had moved into the area and it was hard to locate their families.

“We have a problem of young people who settled here without the knowledge of their close families, which explains our predicament. They are in the morgue right now and people are still going to identify them to see if they are not a family member,” said Dladla. He also added that since the local community policing forum was ineffective, people resorted to taking the law into their hands. Other issues regarding financial assistance for the victims were raised at the gathering. Plato said that the City of Cape Town and the Provincial Government was not going to pay for the funeral but was raising funds. “We will be speaking to busi- Community Safety MEC and councillors met with the families ness people to raise the funds in settlement in Lower Crossroads following recent killings. order for the victims to have dignified funerals. arrest people.

ing up on information, apprehended two suspects aged 39 and 41 and confiscated a firearm as well as rounds of ammunition.” The firearm has been sent for ballistic testing to determine if it has been used in the commission of a crime, Potelwa said.

Friends ‘backabuddy’ Miselwa into classroom Khayelitsha’s Miselwa, said she found her love for story telling while studying drama in high school. After matriculating from Cedar High School for the Arts in 2014, she set her heart on AFDA to pursue her acting dreams. Miselwa,20, was raised by her father and aunt after her mother abandoned the family. Vincent, her father, was able to pay for her first two years of studies with the money he had saved up, but by the third year, he was only able to cover the enrolment fee on his pension. Unable to pay, Miselwa was suspended from class. Knowing she couldn’t afford the outstanding fee of R45 000, Miselwa had no means in sight to finish her degree. Her close friends Luntu Masiza,26, and Vitjitua Kandetu,23, took matters into their own hands. They could not standby and watch as their friend’s talents go to waste and for her to lose her passion for the arts. They believe she has the ability to inspire others with her gift and her personality. “Miselwa is a great human being to be around. She’s a very humbled soul, loving, understanding and a talented individual. Miselwa is also striving to improve herself and be better vision of herself, which is inspiring,” said Masiza. “It was very painful for me to see her suspended from school due to her ( lack of ) fees and not being allowed to fulfil her dream to be the first in her family with a degree. I myself have been in her position before and it was a very painful experience, which I hate to see anyone else going through. I couldn’t seat back and watch her go through that pain and that experience” Masiza added. Kandetu said: “When the school excluded Miselwa because she could not pay up fees, I cried. It broke my heart to see my friend not being able to complete her studies because of fees. I remember telling her ‘Don’t worry, Missy we will make a way. I couldn’t watch it happen. I promised her I had her back,”. Masiza discovered BackaBuddy when he was looking for fundraising to complete his own studies in 2016 and thought crowdfunding might be a good option to get Miselwa back to school. Miselwa, Masiza and Kandetu took it upon themselves to get the word out about the BackaBuddy campaign. They made contact with friends and fam-

ily and attempted getting corporate sponsorships. With donations from Miselwa’s lecturers, classmates and friends R17 317.50 was raised on BackaBuddy towards the outstanding school fees of R45 000. A final, anonymous offline donation of R30 000 was enough to get Miselwa back in the student seat. Inspired by a successful campaign and the overwhelming support from her friends, Miselwa is grateful to be back at school and is already making plans for the future. She hopes to expand society’s lens, portraying strong woman roles and playing dynamic LGBT characters. “I aspire to work in the entertainment industry as an actress, rapper and writer and will do my best at giving back to black communities since art has always been looked down upon. I would love to change the mentality that you have to be in office in order to be successful.” She states. Miselwa is currently back at AFDA catching up on the third term assignments she missed during her 5 week suspension. She is also acting in graduation films and preparing for her one hander stage production. All of this will be performed and screened at the end of Novemeber 2017.

Plea to Mbeki to make E.C. projects a reality I wish to registers an appeal to former President Thabo Mbeki to intervene so that the ANC government under President Zuma and Eastern Cape Premier Phumulo Masualle, to implement projects which you launched in 2007. During your tenure as state president, you launched three projects. One was about the housing development in the rural villages of the Eastern Cape. The second was the rehabilitation of the tarred roads. The third project entailed the establishment of cultural heritage centre at Clarkebury Location in Engcobo. The then Minister of Transport, Jeff Radebe, launched projects to build a tarred road from Kokleni location (Engcobo District) to Dutywa. The road goes through Nkondlo location via Mhlophekazi location to places such as Mbanga, Matati, Xauka, Silityiwa, Bolothwa and Munyu locations under the Mbashe Municipality. There is a need for a tar road from Mbanga to Ntsimbi to KwaDlomo via Bhekileni and Qanguleni to KwaMqoma locations. This road goes via the Heritage Museum Centre to Clarkebury. From Mbashe Municipality the road continues to Mbewuleni via Mqonci to KwaMndila to Gutyubeni to Mjanyane Hospital to Engcobo District Hospital. These projects must still take off the ground. The roads are important as they will enable the smooth and easy access for ambulances to reach rural areas. At the moment, people suffer and die on their way to hospital because of inaccessibility of transport and the time

it takes to reach Mjanyane Hospital. In addition, economic development and trade around the Engcobo District and Mbashe Municipality will assist in the opening of job opportunities. The poor people of Engcobo and Dutywa, especially the youth and students that complete their diplomas and degrees, can be absorbed into the mainstream economy and job creation enterprises. Inequality, poverty and unemployment run rampant in the Eastern Cape. For instance, the many people who get retrenched from factories and mines, go back to the rural areas where there are no job opportunities. Their children (youth) are prone to using drugs, turning into alcohol and get involved in theft syndicates. The implementation of these projects will help create jobs and push back the frontiers of poverty and underdevelopment. Families are rent asunder, squabbles and scuffles lead to loss of dignity among partners, divorce becomes the order of the day, and their children’s future hits rock bottom due to unemployment and poverty. Without the implementation of such projects by the ANC government, it is impossible to fathom economic growth and prosperous Eastern Cape. I know you still have some measure of power and influence. You can use your power wisely and productively to influence the current and future ANC leadership and its governments to never neglect the people of the Eastern Cape. We appeal to you to intervene to arrest the situation. NYAMEKO SINANDILE Khayelitsha

Marches should be for all sides The Friday march against state capture, although well attended, must be broadened in future. It should have real meaning for unions and the public. It is well known that such marches upset many politicians. But we must ask why such protests have only started recently. The State was captured long before our democracy. The Guptas are not the only guilty ones. Many businesspeople have

influenced politicians and state-owned entities. These corrupt people and companies should have been dealt with vigorously, before we got to the current situation. All political parties should have been part of the march, unless of course they are direct beneficiaries of state capture. President Jacob Zuma should have set up a judicial commission of inquiry into state capture. TOM MHLANGA via email

ANC, Cosatu, SACP fooling us ANC alliance partners Cosatu and the SACP are fooling our people, especially those who don’t understand the situation involving state capture and labour brokers. Corruption and state capture has long been happening right under the noses of the ANC and their alliance partners. The Cosatu march on Friday was just a campaign for Deputy President Cyril

Ramaphosa to be elected the ANC president in December 2017. Zwelizima Vavi has been talking about labour brokers for a long time, but no has seriously listened to his uttering. Suddenly Cosatu pretends as if it cares about the poor and unemployed masses of Mzansi. BUYILE PONGOLO Mfuleni

Branding tips for township traders M

any township businesses that once dominated have battled to move with the times. And those that have managed to thrive, have had to face battles in competing with new businesses. These newbies manage to grab the buying power of the 21st-century customer through branding and experiential brand activations. Customers are more interested in spending their money at a business that fits a certain profile. The reason why these businesses do well has everything to do with their overall branding – from inside and out. Whether we like it or not, people judge a book by its cover. The same applies to township businesses. If the place looks inferior and undesirable from the outside, the chances of regular customers will not happen and this will cost your business dearly. Attracting new customers and keeping them is imperative to sustain any business. Branding plays a very important role in any business, from how you position your outside signage to how you display your products and prices. Things such as a simple display can affect your sales, either negatively or positively. And my guess is that you want the latter. Whether we like it or not, people judge a book by its cover. The same applies to township businesses. Before you decide to spend your profits on an entirely new look, take the following into consideration. Who are your customers?

Customers are more interested in spending their money at a business that fits a certain profile. Knowing who buys from you will go a long way. The look and feel of your spot will be highly influenced by your market – from the overall look outside, how you display your products, the type of products on your shelves to your special offers. An easy way to determine who your customers are is to notice their buying habits and behavioural patterns, such as the time of day or night that they frequent your business. Location Some establishments are on main roads where branding opportunities are endless. The main road is a gold mine in that everyone uses it, so the chances of them seeing you are much higher than if you were located away from a main route. However, if you are not positioned on or

near a main road, you can still get creative with your branding by having a presence with directional signs and promotional specials on routes that potential customers will use before they reach your location. Study the routes that are frequented by traffic and when branding in these areas, make sure to get the proper permits and permissions first. This will help you, should you feel the need to approach a regular supplier who supplies your top-selling drinks or products. Suppliers are keen to help their customers with branding, provided that you are willing to meet their terms, which subsequently brings value to you as a customer and strengthens your relationship with them. A supplier can offer branding with

a theme around the top-selling drink or product, and offer branded materials to display. With this type of business relationship with your suppliers, you will be saving and making money. Who is your main competitor? What has your main competitor done differently in terms of branding? Do not copy them, but try to figure out exactly what works for them and what doesn’t so as to find a gap from a branding perspective. You do not want to look like them or be like them; however, be better than them in your own unique way. These are just some of the key things to consider and to consistently implement to make your branding work for you. Good luck!

As youngster, he started out playing for Cape Town Pirates in the goalposts, and for lack of greener pastures, rather stayed put. As goalkeeper, I have great memories of him seemingly so ubiquitous under the posts that coming face to face with him to score, a player had to choose their scoring spot carefully. Gigi Ntlebi was heavily built and could close all the angles, thus depriving an opponent scoring chances. After his playing days, he started coaching youngsters, and this is where he spent most of his time. His coaching straddles across many football clubs, beginning with CT Pirates, in both the juniors and the ladies team, ASD, Hellenic FC, CT All Stars and JL Zwane. He could unearth talent from players whose abilities have not been discovered. The late Gigi Ntlebi

Tutu Puoane’s Belgian Quartet in ‘Litsha S

ongbird Tutu Puoane returns to Cape Town to perform with her world class Belgian band at Isivivana Centre in Khayelitsha this Sunday 8 October from 4pm. This concert which forms part of the Jazz in the Native Yards sessions comes after house-full performances at Johannesburg’s prestigious Joy of Jazz festival last weekend, featuring her band comprising of Ewout Pierreux (piano), Nicolas Thys (bass) and Dre Pallemaerts (drums). The two time SAMA Award winner Puoane’s Quartet tour was made possible by Flanders State of the Art, the northern federated state of Belgium with Brussels as its capital. A trained jazz vocalist, Puoane finished her vocal studies at the College of Music at the University of Cape Town (UCT). After turning down a recording contract with a major South African record company Puoane decided to grab a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go and study in Europe. She developed becoming one of the unique jazz vocalists and performers gaining respect in Europe from musicians and audiences alike. She has released two albums with her band, Song in 2007 and Quiet Now in 2009,

which won a SAMA in 2010. Both of which received critical acclaim. One of Europe s best big bands, the Brussels Jazz Orchestra, invited her to work with them, resulting in an album called Mama Africa, celebrating the life and times of Miriam Makeba, which scooped the South African Music Award for Best Traditional Jazz Album of 2011. Amongst Tutu s fans are international music celebrities like harmonica-legend Toots Thielemans and queen of jazz voice, miss Dianne Reeves. Yet, to the South African audience she still remains a well-kept secret, only known in small jazz surroundings. The fact that she is arguably one of the best young voices and personalities South Africa has ever produced, should easily change that for the better. Born in 1979 in Atteridgeville township and grew up in Mamelodi, Pretoria. She started playing music professionally in 1997 in downtown Johannesburg. Tu studied jazz vocals at UCT with Jelena Reveshin and Virginia Davids and at the royal conservatory of The Hague (Netherlands) with Rachel Gould. She played concerts all over the world in countries like Italy, US (New York

Tutu Puoane. and New Orleans), Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Luxemburg and Switzerland. Tutu has performed extensively in South

Africa with many great South African musicians. In 2001, she performed at the north sea jazz festival cape town, leading an Afro-latino band, Tucan Tucan. She has toured New York in 2000 as the vocalist with the South African National Youth Big Band. She received several awards from major South African jazz competitions. In 2000 she was won the Old Mutual Jazz Encounters for Cape region and in 2001 she received a merit award for young promising talent at the Daimler Chrysler South African jazz competition. In 2004 she was the recipient of the Standard Bank Young Artist of the Year Award for music. In September of 2002, Puoane moved to Europe, spending a year and a half in The Netherlands to study and then relocating in 2004 to her current home in Antwerp, Belgium, where she is working steadily on her career. Tutu has shared the stage with the very best South African and International jazz musicians. Beginning April 2008 she blew away a full house at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, leaving her fellow South Africans in awe of her voice, charisma and unique mix of jazz, soul and African music.

Imbewu, Night and Day, Once Upon A Nation on at ArtsCape Hidden voices will be heard while stories from the past will come to life when Artscape Theatre Centre showcases this year’s New Voices Programme from 03 – 28 October 2017 at the Artscape Arena. The three productions (Imbewu, Night and Day and Once Upon a Nation) on the bill, were selected from scripts, concepts and synopses submitted by individual artists, theatre makers, directors and storytellers from across the country. Imbewu, written by Sinethemba Twani

and directed by the legendary Fatima Dike is the “New Voice” to hit the stage from 03 – 07 October. In this family drama, a father is on a mission to get a second son and successor for the family business. This comes at a cost to other family members, leaving empty spaces that need to be filled. The answers to his question lie deep within the family secrets, that will change his life for better or worse while challenging his beliefs.

The second production, Night and Day is a story about Vincent - once an honest man who had never wronged anyone, he now finds himself in prison through a series of unexpected circumstances. Did these circumstances warrant his imprisonment? Did he commit the crime that put him behind bars with good reason? One morning he awakes and decides that he wants to write a book. In this process he gives us insight into his dark past that led to his imprisonment.

He also “befriends” his prison warden, thus starting a male-to-male emotional journey that examines some interesting questions. The show, written by Khayalethu Anthony and directed by Khayalethu Mofu will be staged from 10 – 14 October. Tickets for all productions (R40 for scholars, R45 for pensioners, students and block bookings of 10 or more and R50 for the general public) are available via Computicket or Artscape-Dial-a-Seat 021 421 7695.

Cultural affair an eye opener, now for Miss Thick SPINDOG MOTSAMAI It was a great day when young women took part in a Miss Heritage beauty contest held at Luleka Primary School in Harare last week. The contest was organised by Tembakazi Lumkwana, a young woman who wanted to raise awareness amongst the “young ones” to stay clean and abstain from unprotected and promiscuous sex. “I organised this contest to encourage young children to abstain from sexual activities and learn about the importance of preserving their bodies as their heritage,” said Tembakazi. She added tha they were also taught about the origins of their clan names and various isiXhosa cultural matters.

She said the event has opened the children’s eyes on traditional affairs. She was helped in the organisation of the event by her proud mother, Noncedo Matshoba. “It was nice to see young girls coming out to celebrate this day wearing their traditional outfits. It was not only about walking the stage but we taught them important lessons,” said Noncedo. Parents from the area also attended the event to support their children. Tembakazi, who is unemployed but works part-time at Mothers To Mothers is planning more events to keep young girls focussed. “I will be staging Miss Thick for young girls to fight the stigma associated with being fat,” she declared.

Litsha boxers shine fighting for change MANDLA MAHASHE

Heavy hitting Sinethemba Bam (in yellow shorts) led the charges on his way to defeat Port Elizabeth’s Simon Mbande by TKO.


Three of the four Khayelitsha based boxers who fought at the Fight For Change tournament came back winners. The event, hosted by Maxim Boxing Promotions on Friday night saw eight bouts with local and international battles. Former IBF Featherweight champ Sinethemba Bam lead the charges with his hard hitting knocks and overwelm Port Elizabeth’ Simon Mbande. Burundi born Khayelitsha based Edward Nyamwanda showed excited showmanship as he beat Lazola Jikazana on points. While Vusumzi Tyatyeka, a former IBF Junior Welterweight champion showed that he still had it as he outgunned DRC Congo’s Ilunga Masala.


Vusumzi Tyatyeka made easy work of his Congolese challenger Ilunga Masala in their Junior Welter­ weight fight.

Animated Burundi born but Khayelitsha based bantam­ weight Edward Nyamwanda overcame Lazola Jikazana during their extremely entertaining four round tussle on Friday evening.

The team has now being promoted to the C division in the league and will resume playing next year. Hlakula said that the victory was a reward for his teams focus on the game despite challenges in their surroundings. “Having participated in the D division for the first time officially, and subsequently winning it, it’s something that we will always reflect on with fervent memories. It was a well deserved victory even if I have to say it myself, as we eat, sleep and live chess on a daily basis. There is a lack of positivity in townships like Crossroads and chess has become one of the few things which keep us breathing,” he said. The team faced off with 40 other

The coach thanked the players as well as their strong support structure turned them into a strong team in just 3 years since the team’s establishment. “It would be remiss of me not to pay grati-

tude and acknowledge the immense support we’ve received from our development officer Eugene Steenkamp. He has been behind the club since day one, at times offering his own personal transport so to ferry our players to chess tournaments. I would also like to thank Deon Solomon

and the rest of the Western Cape Chess Executive Committee for welcoming us and all the teams we’ve played amongst or against. Not forgetting Watu Kobese for his huge contribution in training the club, with a short period of time his aptitude for chess is really showing off,” he said. The team was established by the local library in 2015 with Hlakula being at the helm since then. The team started with just 10 young children but has now blossomed into 35 member team with medals to show. Hlakula said that some people may not grasp why this is such a big deal but shared some light on this. “You know people who do not play chess often think it is just a couple of checks and mate but not knowing that you sit for hours labouring to stop your opponent’s ideas. Trying to exalt your own and ending up maybe winning a pawn, position or tempo which might give you a slight advantage over your opponent and you still need to convert that advantage into a win. So winning the League was a mammoth task with all the challenges that the club faces,” said the proud coach.
