Vote for young PE dancers in national talent competition NCEBA DLADLA IDENTICAL twins from New Brighton in Port Elizabeth stand a chance of winning a National Talent Search Competition and a whopping R25 000 on offer. Members of the Red Location Cul-
ture Group Liya and Lihle Vena (14), the incredible twins from Dora Street in New Brighton, won this year’s annual Mzansi Magic Market Day Regional Talent Show which was held at the Boardwalk Entertainment World and Casino recently. This entrepreneurship programme of M-Net awards budding
actors, singers and dancers. The twins performed a Michael Jackson dance and wowed the crowds to beat 250 other contestants. But the Grade 9 Cowan High School pupils depend on the public votes to stand a chance of winning the national competition. “We are very proud of what Lihle
and Liya have achieved. I know they love Michael Jackson. We wish them well,” said their class teacher, Luleka Sobetwa. “These kids have pure talent! They are hard workers who practise every day to sharpen their skills,” said Tony Pearce, a UK teacher and researcher who mentors the duo as members of the Red
Location Cultural Group. Voting can be done via the Mzansi Magic Market Day website and facebook page. The voting started on 10 September and will continue until Friday 21 September.

General Motors support National Book Week Over 1500 children were exposed to the Toy Library, which was part of the National Book Week held at the Red Location Museum in New Brighton from September, 6 to 8. General Motors South Africa sponsored the Toy Library which was an integral part of this initiative. With 75% of what children will learn in their lifetime being learnt by the age of two, the Toy Library serves as an educational stimulation with special focus on foundation skills for literacy, mathematics and scientific thinking for young children whose families are living in poverty. During the three days that this event was held, thousands of children moved through the Magic Tent which housed the Toy library, Reading Section and Poetry Section. Heleen Johnson, Director of Active Learning Libraries South Africa said, “The response was overwhelming and the reason for
this was that the event was held in an informal settlement therefore it was more accessible for the kids to reach the venue. There are no sport grounds or safe playing spaces in the New Brighton area so the Toy Library offered them a safe and secure area where they can come and play and learn in a fun and exciting environment”. “The sponsorship from General Motors enabled the Active Learning Libraries to bring this Toy Library to the children in the Eastern Cape. We found that the children had no basic skills like sorting shapes but they appear to have a lot of potential”, said Johnson. Nandipha Moyakhe, GMSA employee, who volunteered at the Toy Library on Saturday said, “It is amazing to see how the kiddies got excited about fitting shapes and sizes together. They realised that it is not so difficult and were very proud to show off their make believe objects to the rest of the volunteers and staff.”

Central transformed in huge obstacle and festival ground for Urban Run MICHAEL ZOETMULDER
PORT ELIZABETH’S Central district is set to come alive this weekend for the third annual Nelson Mandela Bay Herald Urban run which will see the area and its historical buildings transformed into one big obstacle course and festival ground. The Urban Run is hosted by the Mandela Bay Development Agency to draw people back to the CBD and have great fun whilst raising funds for local charities with a target of over R100 000. Apart from the over 1 000 participants who will be taking to the streets tackling the obstacles, the
Donkin Reserve will also be turned into a festival ground with activities for young and old. “Our aim is not only to bring people to the completed MBDA projects, but also to expose the CBD to people that have not been in the CBD for a number of years owing to the perception of crime and grime,” said Pierre Voges CEO of the MBDA. “For the MBDA it is about making the completed MBDA projects come alive. Urban renewal is not only about design and infrastructure implementation, but also about security, cleanliness and the resulting growth in pride, real estate confidence, art, sport, heritage and culture, amongst others.” According to Voges, one of their
aims is to bring life back to the city, in terms of people living, working and enjoying the city surroundings, and the Urban Run is an effort in this respect. “2011 saw the first event with 400 entries and very good exposure on Supersport. This year we will have 1200 athletes and a much bigger event, in terms of activities and exposure. I have no doubt it will grow into a serious event, not only on the local sporting and events calendar, but also on the national calendar,” said Voges. This 10.5km obstacle race is rated as one of the most exciting events on the local calendar. The Scouts of Nelson Mandela Bay have been hard at work to ensure that they

Nelson Mandela Bay ready for new Integrated Public Transport System NCEBA DLADLA NELSON Mandela Bay is on the verge of starting a new public transport system which is viewed as a significant step towards making it a world-class city. A pilot project to kick-start the Integrated Public Transport System (IPTS) will be implemented as early as October. According to Nelson Mandela Bay Senior Technician and IPTS expert, Luvuyo Ntshebe, the overhaul of the current “poor, separate and uncoordinated” system will take place at the beginning of next year. The metro will use 50 buses that were bought with funding from the Department of Transport just before the 2010 Fifa Soccer World Cup. The buses are currently standing idle and gathering dust. Speaking to the religious fraternity at the City Hall in Port Elizabeth on Thursday as part of the metro’s consultative strategy meetings to various sectors, Ntshebe said the metro was ready to start the safe, quick, affordable and efficient system. “All the role-players in the transport sector have been consulted and agreed
to be part of the process that is meant to benefit and empower residents of the metro,” said Ntshebe. The system which uses median lanes and enclosed median route stations on trunk corridors is aimed at taking the metro forward. According to Ntshebe, it is aimed at reducing transport congestion by making more people use a cost-effective public transport system. This, added Ntshebe, will combat environmental impact and reduce global warning - something good for future generations. According to Ntshebe, this is the system originally known as BRT which was tried and tested in countries like Brazil and Colombia. He said South Africa modified the system however, with the inclusion of the taxi industry which plays a pivotal role in the transport sector. “Government has assured everyone that there will be no loss of jobs and income as a result of the system,” said Ntshebe. Religious leaders asked many questions like whether the fares would be exorbitant for the unemployed and poor; and whether there would be discounts for the elderly, children and the disabled. Ntshebe said all will be catered for fairly in the new system.

ke iNational Road Traffic Act 93 ka1996 ikubeka ngokucacile ukuba ‘akukho mqhubi wesithuthi uvumelekileyo ukuba asebenzise icellular phone ngethuba eqhuba kwindawo kawonke wonke.” Umthetho awuthethi ngokohluthwa kweecelular kubaqhubi abophula umthetho, uthetha nje ngentlawulo emayenziwe neyakugqitywa nguMantyi OMkhulu. “Okwakalokunje sisasebenzisa loo Mthetho,” utshilo uTotoyi. UGustav Rautenbach, oyiCaucus Chief Whip kumbutho weDA nokwalilungu leStanding Commitee kwi-Safety and Security, ubona ukuba i-by-law le ilungile. “Iyaxakekisa into yokusetyenziswa kweecellphones ngabantu abaqhubayo,” utshilo okaRautenbach. Kwintlanganiso ye-Safety and Security standing committee ngomhla we 13 kuJulayi uRautenbach ucele ukuba ukhe uhandwe umcimbi wokungeniswa kwale By-law kwimetro ngokukhawuleza.

Kuya kuxhomekeka ke ngoko kumagosa ezendlela ukuqinisekisa ukuba lo Mthetho-Sihlomelo usisinyanzeliso,” ulebele ngelitshoyo okaRautenbach.

Future looks bright for talented kids NCEBA DLADLA

“WE are special, beautiful and talented!” So say New Brighton township children who attend music, drama and dance classes at Edward Memorial Church Hall in New Brighton, Port Elizabeth. About 100 school-going children, aged between seven and 16 years, who call themselves Red Location Traditional Dancers, sing traditional and modernday music, dance, act and do poetry under the professional guidance of a United Kingdom (UK) teacher and researcher Tony Pearce. Tony, of Cumbria in the UK, is based at the University of Central Lancashire and volunteers his time and resources to train and teach these young, gifted and dedicated children who want to make something of their lifes. Some of his colleagues in the UK also assist Tony in the project. Most of the children go to township schools and some attend schools in the Northern Areas. They meet every Monday to Thurs-
day from 3 to 6 pm. “I teach them English through drama and poetry to help them understand their school work. And then they do all kind of exercises to show their talents and, hey – these kids are amazing! With this talent they can perform in any competition in the country and win,” said an upbeat Tony. He added: “I teach some of them the art so that they can teach others. Our aim is to see them succeed in school and also take part in competitions like SA’s Got talent.” The youth sing and dance in duets, quartets, sestets and groups in concerts and events around Nelson Mandela Bay. According to Tony, they will also start teaching them to play music instruments like guitar, flute and piano this week. Tony commended the role being played by Kama Primary School principal Nobantu Oliphant who is also the church deacon. “She is the Project Coordinator, someone who plays a pivotal role in the organisation,” he said. Tony is hoping to take at least 20 students on a tour to the UK early next year if they manage to raise enough funds.

The white wines are a Sauvignon Blanc, which is called Original Sin and insinuates that it is a sin to grow Sauvignon Blanc in the Hemel-en-Aarde, known for its Chardonnay. Their own seductive Chardonnay is referred to as the Jezebelle – desired by many and had by few; and the Weisser Riesling, which is Last Temptation. The red blends in the collection include the Rhone blend Anthelia, their very popular Bordeaux blend known as Nymphomane and a delectable Italian blend called Satyricon, which lends a hand to face temptation and accept redemption. La Vierge encourages consumers to enjoy their products responsibly. Products are not for sale to persons under the age of 18.

But we’ll need to do a feasibility study first to check whether it is indeed a Film and Television Academy that we need in the Eastern Cape,” said PE Opera House Managing Director Monde Ngonyama. “In my view, we need a focused and concerted effort to train EC youth in film and TV production but also to find space for them to operate after qualifications,” said Ngonyama.

NCEBA DLADLA NELSON Mandela Metropolitan University’s Contact Dojo, which is affiliated to the International Karate Organisation (IKO), will be hosting their annual Karate Tournament at the Missionvale Campus Sports Centre on Saturday 15 September. “It’s going to be a semi- and fullcontact dojo,” said IKO Regional Chief Instructor Sensei Zolile Maxama. Universities involved with NMMU will be Fort Hare, Walter Sisulu, Tshwane University of Technology, UCT and the University of KwaZulu Natal. Participants will be senior males and females. “We want many people to come and watch this tournament and have therefore decided that the event will be free of charge,” said sensei Maxama. “The style (kyokushin) is not very well-known, so we are trying to popu-
larise it by attracting more people to the tournament. This is a real thing and people will have to pay for the next event.” The NMMU Kyokushin participant Lizeka Senti (19), who holds a Brown Belt, is looking forward to the tournament, she told PE Express Indaba. “This is our last major tournament of the year,” said the Public Management Degree student. First Dan Black Belt Senpai Bongani Mngaza (23) also of NMMU Kyokushin will, however, miss the tournament. “I did not have enough time to train for the event. We have been working hard on our final year project; so for me this one’s a miss,” said Zwide Township born Mngaza who now resides in Humewood. He said he was only preparing for the University Sports of SA (USSA) tournament which will be held in University of Johannesburg (UJ) in the first week of December. “NMMU will be going to defend their title as the number 1 Kyokushin champs in the country,” said Mngaza proudly.

Boxing meeting to thrash out problems at Sizakele Konzi hall NCEBA DLADLA NELSON Mandela Bay boxing Promoters and Managers had a very fruitful meeting which was held at Sizakele Konzi Community Hall in KwaNobuhle, Uitenhage last Wednesday. Boxing South Africa (BSA) Service Provider Mthunzi Mapitiza said boxing licensees (managers and promoters) met to discuss issues that affect their operations in so far as their adherence to the prescripts of the Boxing Act. The meeting was called by the boxing promoters. “We have a commitment to provide boxing lovers with good shows but the relationship we enjoy with boxing managers sometimes rob us
of that opportunity. That’s why we called the meeting,” said Mbulelo Mfama, head of Nyusa Boxing Promotions. Asked to explain, Mfama said promoters found it wrong for managers to tell their boxers not to fight for certain promoters or worse still, for managers to tell their boxers to pull out of fights. This was seen during Gladys “Noforty” Tsenene’s last development tournament at Babs Madlakane Community Hall in Uitenhage about a month ago, argued Mfama. Mfama said managers and promoters agreed that when a boxer signed a contract for a fight, a boxer must honour the contract, otherwise pulling out kills the tournament. “We also looked into the idea of promoters
bringing fighters from other provinces to fight for the title here - and agreed that at this stage, we got only Makhosonke Zwengu and Unathi Jacobs approved to fight for the SA titles - all other boys got their chances and lost,” said Mfama. Mapitiza who was invited in the meeting as an observer thanked the promoters for the initiative - the meeting was like a workshop, he said. “The meeting helped to iron out issues that were very important to both the managers and promoters in their liaison with boxers, said Mapitiza. Other issues that got the attention of the managers and promoters were the ranking of local boxers in the provincial ratings as well as the usage of the ring.
MOFA holds end-of-season prize- giving ceremony DISTINGUISHED guests, club delegates and Motherwell Football Association (MOFA) officials graced MOFA’s end-of-the-season prize giving ceremony on 31 August to honour their outstanding teams, match officials and executive members at the Raymond Mhlaba Sports Complex.

The major sponsor, Motherwell Build It Owner Sibongile Nkebe, expressed his satisfaction about the fact that the relationship between them, as sponsors, and MOFA was a healthy one. “I am very delighted with the existing healthy relationship between MOFA and us. Mofa keeps us updated with the progress. The tight competition between the teams speaks volumes. The
clubs and their fans’ level of discipline was high,” said Nkebe. MOFA Biyana Top 8 sponsors, Dr Ngubo Biyana, also said that the clubs and teams behaved exceptionally well and did not bring the brand into disrepute. Dr Biyana said “Sport is the unifying factor.

NELSON Mandela Bay will be welcoming German boxers who will be visiting these shores for a test against boxers from the Eastern Cape Academy next week. Twelve boxers from Lower Saxony in Germany - nine males and three females – as well as two German Boxing Senior officials will be landing at the Port Elizabeth International Airport on Monday, September 17. They will compete in a tournament to be held at the Raymond Mhlaba Sport Centre in Motherwell, Port Elizabeth next Wednesday, September 19. According to Linda Nondzaba, from the local organising committee, the Eastern Cape team has been training hard and is well-prepared to face the Germans toe-totoe. He said the tournament is aimed at sharpening the skills of South African boxers to that of international standards. According to Nelson Mandela Bay Department of Sport Assistant
Director, Mwelase Mboxela, the tour is part of the twinning agreement the Eastern Cape Province enjoys with the Germans. Through this agreement the province’s sport teams, coaches and administrators share best practices and learn from each other’s experiences with those of the German counterparts. “The Germans’ visit is organised by Head office in conjunction with the Eastern Cape Amateur Boxing Organisation (ECABO). They will be here next week and then proceed to Amathole and the OR Tambo District Municipalities on the 22 and 24 September respectively,” said Mboxela. The Germans will be taken on a tour of the metro’s places of educational and historical interest during their stay here. Mboxela said they will also visit local gymnasiums in order to see how local boxers train and prepare for fights. “We invite boxing fans to come in numbers to the Raymond Mhlaba Sports Centre next week. Admission at the door is free,” said Mboxela.
