Bay TV celebrates first birthday with DStv announcement NCEBA DLADLA


ELSON Mandela Bay’s own community television station, Bay TV, is celebrating its first birthday in October on a high note. According to newly appointed Bay TV station Manager Geoff Hookins, there is even more reason to celebrate as they will not only be introducing three new programmes, but will also now be available on DStv from next month. Hookins said he is proud of the role and growth of this powerful medium in Nelson Mandela Bay and Eastern Cape. “We are really celebrating a milestone and the way things are done here at Bay TV, I am sure we’ll grow the station and be there for a long time,” said Hookins proudly. As a gift to the community Bay TV is introducing three new shows to its schedule in October. These are a sports programme, called Match Time, a dance show called Fohloza Dance and a religious debate show called Sahlukaphi (Where do we differ?) To celebrate in style, Bay TV has organised a braai for members of the community at Happy Value on Heritage Day, Monday 24 September. This family outing is offered in association with Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism. Castle is sponsoring the live stage for local artists performing in different genres, including Shoelace, Take Note, Blawa Mafiozo, Azz Veritazz, Nombongo and many more. There

will be braais in the VIP area courtesy of Castle and Marina Braai Salt. Algoa Bus will offer six buses to transport people from various pickup points to the venue. These pick-up points are at Cleary Park Shopping Centre, Motherwell Shopping Centre, Daku Shopping Centre, Babs Madlakane Hall, Njoli Square and 6th Avenue, Walmer at 9am. The proceeds of the event will be donated to a worthy charity organisation.




really celebrating a milestone and the way things are done here at Bay TV, I am sure we’ll grow the station and be there for a long time.

Well-known South African rapper home to shoot music video PE EXPRESS INDABA REPORTER Well-known South African rapper, iFani, returned to his hometown of Port Elizabeth this week to film his third music video for his latest single, ‘Shake’.

Fans know him for his quirky, catchy songs, especially his hit single, ‘Ewe’, which aired on SABC 1 Live and hit the top of two 5FM chart shows. iFani was born in Umtata but his family moved to Port Elizabeth when he was very young and so he considers the city his home. Keeping his birth name a secret, he says that iFani is a corruption of ‘it’s not the same’ in Xhosa, an adage he lives his musical career by. iFani not only returned home to film his music video but chose to use local professionals to do the job. “I have just been signed by Sony Music Entertainment - Africa and I decided that if they are going to send me out into the rest of the world I want to take my home city with me,” he said. Innerview Productions, a local video production company owned by

Jean Du Toit, were more than pleased to take on the challenge. The world of music is one Jean knows well. He was lead singer and songwriter with popular Port Elizabeth band BGF and then Autonative and is more recently known for his singing and rapping in the ‘dirty south’ band, The Cottonfields. “It has been great working with iFani this week and really exciting to be shooting the video here in Port Elizabeth. We have some incredible outdoor locations in this city and more than enough talent to create an exceptional video.” The shoot has been taking place this week in a number of different locations around Port Elizabeth, including the parking lot opposite the old ice rink. Red Bull turned up on Wednesday to keep the more than 30 extras and crew energised for the long day and night shoot. When asked about how the experience has been, iFani said, “Port Elizabeth has amazed me this week. The talent here is exceptional and the level of professionalism has made it a great experience. I’m so glad to be taking a part of Port Elizabeth away with me.”

SPAR women pamper kids on ladies’ day PE EXPRESS REPORTER SPAR Eastern Cape’s female employees used their annual internal ladies’ day not to pamper themselves but to give back to the community by spending the day at two underprivileged crèches in Nelson Mandela Bay on Friday. The 95 women divided themselves between the Lilitha Crèche in Veeplaas and the Sonwabile Educare Centre in New Brighton, where they entertained the children, cooked them a meal and left behind a variety of educational materials and toys. Speaking at the New Brighton event, SPAR EC human resources officer Uonella Ntsebeza said it was very important for the company to assist organisations in the communities in which it operated. “As women we are caregivers, so for us this just fits naturally. I think this is typical of women – to do something for other people.” Ntsebeza said a lot of work had gone into planning the day, with every employee involved in coming up with ideas for themes and activities. The 110 children at the New Brighton crèche were treated to face painting, a jumping castle and mini-Olympics, as well as a visit from Trolley Man, before enjoying

hamburgers and party packs in the colourfully draped school hall. “At the end of the day, they received back sacks with colouring books, crayons, lunch tins, juice bottles and other items to contribute towards their education.” According to her, the little ones were mostly raised in single-parent families or by their grandmothers, who relied on the child support grant as their sole source of income. “We just wanted to make it a really fun day for the kids. The reward we got from seeing them smiling and happy was just priceless.” Sonwabile Educare Centre principal Zoliswa Nkwalase said she felt very blessed by the supermarket giant’s involvement and looked forward to an ongoing partnership. “Going forward, we’re hoping to assist the school in any way that we can,” said Ntsebeza. SPAR EC creditors manager Zelda le Roux said she and her fellow employees had been incredibly touched and humbled by the experience. “It really gives you perspective and makes you realise that you’ve got enough, so now it’s about finding ways to give back.” Every year, the SPAR EC ladies’ day is held as close to National Women’s Month as company schedules allow.

THE PE Express Indaba correspondent Selby Madikane is a sports fanatic who always likes to be on the ball. And his hard work and dedication is being acknowledged and rewarded. Madikane, an Imbasa Primary School teacher of NU7 in Motherwel, has been awarded medals and certificates as a Sports Reporter by a number of sport bodies from the township. This former Inkqubeka Primary School teacher has also seen his efforts being appreciated at his current school. He has been receiving Trophies and Certifcates for Outstanding Performance since 2005. An athlete of note and member of Willard Batteries Athletics Club who has also played good rugby and soccer, Madikane received Awards from Motherwell Football Association (Mofa) four times, New Brighton Football Association (Nebfa) twice and twice from Zakhele Football Association (Zafa). “I also got a certificate at (Imbasa) school for participating in the Danone Cup,” said a proud Madikane.

This married father of two cannot count the medals he has received as a marathon runner. He still takes pride though in the silver medal he won in the Marina Sea-salt half Marathon - the sport he had to quit unfortunately owing to an archilles tendon injury a few years ago. Madikane grew up following in the footsteps of his older brothers who played rugby for Young Collegiates RFC. He quickly turned to football to don a City Royals FC jersey and then Black Pirates in Veeplaas. “I developed an interest to join the administration as a secretary of

Black Chiefs FC at 15 years of age. This was extended to coaching - I started assistant coaching the first team at about that time,” reminisced Madikane. “I love sport. I wish the youth could realise that sports activism is good for their health and success in life,” said Madikane. He thanked Florence his wife for her continued support.

Let's talk about TB

TB is a disease that, although preventable, is still ravaging the people of our city. Over the following few weeks, the District Office of Health aims at sharing certain key information on TB with you. The objectives of these articles are to, primarily, prevent the spread of the disease and, secondary, to advise on how to optimise treatment in order to achieve the speedy cure and recovery from TB for those who have contracted the disease (yes, TB is completely curable). In this instalment, I wish to touch on some general issues. TB is largely preventable, yet in our city we have about 10 890 people on treatment every day. This excludes the 417 patients who are in the 3 TB Hospitals. Why would this be, one wonders? Pulmonary TB (TB of the lungs) is caused by an organism called a TB Bacillus. It is so small and light, that it easily spreads from person to person through the air. That is why we ask people to be aware of when they cough or sneeze in the presence of anybody else. This happens at home, on buses, taxis and trains, in offices and, yes, even in sports bars and shebeens. 3 easy steps to stop the spread of the disease:  In past we asked people to just place their hands over their mouths when they coughed or sneezed, but we now ask people to cough & sneeze into their sleeves or into a piece of cloth that will not allow any germs to go out into the open air. Also, open windows to allow fresh air to continuously come into any area you are in.  Lastly, make surerd you eat enough healthy food (yes, a healthy body does not get TB as easily as a malnourished body)  Next time (i.e. 3 October): how to optimise treatment in order to achieve the speedy cure and recovery from TB.

Held during Heritage and Tourism Month, the event which “is proudly owned by the commu-

nity” under the supervision and guidance of Sikhona Events and Logistics is expected to attract more than 5 000 visitors from the surrounding areas. Event Coordinator Martin Pram said: “We want to inform our communities about the significant role government departments play while giving school children relevant information about career choices, institutions of higher learning and scholarships and bursaries,” said Pram.

The special needs school, located in Cotswold, accommodates 167 learners from Grade R to Grade 12, and caters for children with a wide variety of learning and physical disabilities, including cerebral palsy, spina bifida and muscular dystrophy. Gishma Johnson, Corporate Communications Manager at CTSA, says that the safety of the learners is priority. “We understand the needs of the school and reacted urgently to their request as we know the risk involved in driving with worn tyres. The sponsorship will ensure the ongoing mobility of the school’s essential transport system, while providing crucial driving safety on the roads.” Louise Jacobs, senior administrator at the Northern Lights School explains that these children come from the poorest of the poor areas right across the Nelson Mandela Bay region and most of the learners’ fami- Northern Lights School head boy Andisiwe lies simply cannot afford school fees Nyangasya is one of many learners that rely or any form of specialised care or tui- on the school’s essential transport system.

and other basic amenities puts a huge strain on our budget.” “Continental’s sponsorship of tyres for our fleet of seven minibuses is immensely appreciated, as it alleviates the burden of replacement costs. This allows us to direct that money into other much-needed areas such as learning materials, mobility equipment and assisted learning devices, as well as the ongoing maintenance and repairs to our ageing fleet of vehicles.” Despite the challenges faced by the school, according to Jacobs it ranks amongst the top four in the Eastern Cape for Grade 12 pass rates. Northern Lights encourages participation in a variety of sports amongst the learners, one of whom is a member of South Africa’s wheelchair tennis squad. As it embraces the full spectrum of education and care, the school features a full range of support staff, including an occupational therapist, physiotherapist and house mothers to assist the teachers. This is not the first time Continental Tyre SA has supported the school. In 2010, as part of its sponsorship of the Soccer World Cup in South Africa, Continental donated R100 000 towards the school’s transport system. This enabled Northern Lights to acquire a much-needed additional minibus. During the World Cup, CTSA also took the learners to one of the soccer matches in Port Elizabeth. “It was a dream come true for the entire school, and especially our terminally ill children,” said Jacobs.

THEY received a warm South African welcome with traditional dance, music and ululation, but the Lower Saxony Boxing Federation Team that arrived in Nelson Mandela Bay on Monday, should expect no favours from their Eastern Cape opponents when they meet in the ring. This was said by Honourable MEC for Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture Xoliswa Tom during the press conference to welcome the German team that is here to partake in a boxing test against the Eastern Cape Team selected from the EC Amateur Boxing Organisation (ECABO) with assistance from the EC Sports Council. The visit is seen as nurturing and cementing the good relations Eastern Cape Government enjoys with the State of Lower Saxony as part of a twinning agreement to share best practices, knowledge and expertise in areas of youth development, coaches exchange, athlete development and support programme as well as sport administration, said MEC Tom.
