Residents want councillor out NCEBA DLADLA THE burning of tyres and the destroying of infrastructure by angry Port Elizabeth residents has been lambasted by the ANC regional secretary, Zandisile Qupe, and the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality. Angry residents from Shukushukuma in Motherwell recently burned tyres and blockaded Zinakile Street while singing freedom songs and demanding that Ward 55 Councillor Phumeza Lose vacates her position in favour of their nominated candidate Mthunzi Madolo. “We nominated Mthunzi Madolo to be our councillor before the May 2011 Local Government Elections but the ANC (region) later changed our choice and gave us Phumeza Lose whom we said we did not want,” said South African National Civic Organistaion (SANCO) branch leader, Hombile Nyathi. According to Nyathi, they told the ANC’s provincial and national leaders of the party that they were not going to vote if Madolo, in whom they have confidence, was not given the chance to lead the area that he has served so diligently from the days of the Transitional Local Council. The residents claim that during the Siyanqoba Campaign held here, President Jacob Zuma, national ANC chairperson Baleka Mbete and provincial chairperson Phumulo Masualle persuaded them to vote for the ANC candidate nevertheless, with

the promise that their complaint would be entertained after 100 days. “We in turn persuaded people to vote because we trusted our leadership. But the end of August marked the end of the 100 days and we hear no word from our leadership. Enough is enough!” said Nyathi. “It is the fourth time that we nominated Madolo for the councillor position but the ANC gave us somebody else. We have been quiet all along but not anymore! We do not want Lose here!” said Mbulelo Taaibos. Nokwezi Bolana, another resident, believes there is always a ploy to stop Madolo from ascending to the councillor position every time they nominate him; and that, she said, made them very angry. In the previous municipal elections Madolo made way for a woman councillor Nomamerika Magopeni and that was to be her last, added Bolana. “Worse still, it would have been better if Phumeza Lose did something to develop the area within the 100 days. She has done nothing for this area since she came into office,” said Bolana. Meanwhile, Councillor Lose refused to comment when PE Express Indaba contacted her. As an ANC deployee, she said, only the ANC can better comment on the issue. Speaking to PE Express Indaba, Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality spokesperson Kupido Baron believes the matter was “purely party political”. Baron has, however, condemned the residents’ actions. “We don’t condone the burning of tyres and destroying of infrastruc-

ture. If people have a misunderstanding with anyone, they don’t have to destroy the municipal infrastructure. They must go to the party concerned and resolve the issue. This creates a huge problem for the municipality,” said Baron. The ANC regional secretary Zandisile Qupe said he was aware of the problem but did not see the rea-

son why residents would resort to this action. He said the ANC was looking after their complaint and would act when the time is right “You’ll remember that there were areas that complained about their candidate choices before the elections. A national task team chaired by comrade Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was then elected to look into such

complaints and act accordingly, Qupe said, adding that this task team was currently in KZN trying to solve problems of this nature. “We do not know when they will finish in KZN, where they will go to next and when they will come here. This is an ANC process that we believe all ANC structures must be patient for,” said Qupe.

High Crime statistics reported in Highestmurder ratioinEC the Eastern Cape Province NCEBA DLADLA THE Eastern Cape Crime Research statistics by the South African Police Service (SAPS) reveal a state that needs an urgent attention. Violent and serious crimes like murder, sexual crimes, attempted murder, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm (GBH) and illegal possession of firearms were counted as among the top on the list in the periods between April 2009 to March 2010 and April 2010 to March 2011.

The statistics had some positive results as well with Uitenhage Police Station being among the top three performers in the province with its 21,3 % reduction of crimes reported during the same period. Kwazakhele, New Brighton, Mount Road and Humewood stood out as the crime hots-pots in the Nelson Mandela Bay area. In kidnap cases, Kwazakhele led, followed by Motherwell and Swartkops. In reported murder cases it was New Brighton, Kwazakhele and Bethelsdorp in the lead while in car hi-jacking Kwazakhele led followed shortly by

New Brighton and Bethelsdorp. In sexual crimes Bethelsdorp, New Brighton and Kwazakhele were high whereas Mount Road, Humewood and Algoa Park were leading the pack in Business burglaries. Kwazakhele reported 85 murder cases in the period from April 2010 to March 2011 compared to the 70 cases reported from April 2009 to March 2010. In attempted murder cases there was a slight drop from 89 to 81 in the same period. There was only one car hijacking case reported in Kwazakhele during the same period whereas Motherwell reported 17

Next­of­kin sought by police INDABA REPORTER The KwaNobuhle police are appealing to the community to assist them with information for the finalisation of a murder case that took place during 2005. The body of an unknown African female (approximately between the ages of 30 and 50) was found in the water under a bridge at Mabandla Road, KwaNobuhle, on Sunday, 22 May 2005. The

woman wore a blue sleeveless dress with a striped long sleeve top underneath. She had an open wound on her left foot. The cause of death was an injury to the head with a blunt object. The woman was never identified and she had a pauper’s burial at the cemetery in Motherwell. In order for the KwaNobuhle police to finalise the case they request that the next-of-kin contact the investigating officer Detective Sergeant J. Botha on 0 083 395 9455.

cases from April 2010 to March 2011 which was a huge drop from the 45 cases reported during the April 2009 to March 2010 period.

The other increase here was in the shoplifting cases reported from seven to 30 during the same period. Burglary at residential premises remains a huge problem in Walmer with reported cases increasing from 718 to 894 in the period under discussion.

er Gerda Swart said the two Somali nationals were busy working at My Friend Shop when three suspects entered the shop and one with a firearm allegedly fired shots and fled the scene. “One victim who died on Sunday morning at the Provincial hospital was shot in the head and the other one in the chest,” said Swart, adding that the surviving victim who is in his early 30s was rushed to Livingstone hospital for treatment. The SAPS Kamesh is still investigating the murder and attempted murder cases, said Swart.

TANYA VAN ZYL THE Eastern Cape has the highest murder ratio in the country. This was made public last week Thursday when the South African crime statistics were released. “This is very shocking and alarming’, according to Bobby Stevenson, DA Eastern Cape Provincial Legislature Leader and Spokesperson on Safety and Security. In a statement made by Stevenson, the Eastern Cape has the highest murder ratio in the country at 47,3 murders per 100 000 of the population. This is higher than Gauteng’s figures with a murder ratio of 29,1. “This figure is truly devastating. Although the number of reported cases shows a slight decline in contact crimes, violent crime in the Eastern Cape is still at an unaccept -ably high level,” Stevenson admitted. The stats show that sexual crimes have increased by 2,2% and have now reached “the alltime high of 9 380, but one must remember that it is estimated that only one in nine rapes is reported”. Business in the Eastern Cape is also targeted with robberies at non-residential premises increasing by 30,2% – the highest in the country. Burglary at non-residential premises (1,4%) is also up slightly from 6 424 cases to 6 515 cases. This is also the highest increase in the country (1 658 cases up from 1 273). “This has a negative impact on our economy as the cost to business impacts adversely on job creation,” he said. Good news, though, is that burglary at residential premises (-3%) and robbery at residential premises (-3%) shows a slight decline, but “one is still very unsafe in one’s own home with 74 burglaries and four aggravated robberies per day in the Eastern Cape”. Also on the positive side, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is down by 26,1%. “Crime statistics are still far too high and unless we embrace world class policing tactics, we will never reduce crime to acceptable levels in our society. Coupled to that, we need to have a world-class provincial government administration so we can create the right environment for massive job creation,” Stevenson said.

Nelson Mandela Bay’s water ‘safe to drink’ TANYA VAN ZYL THE Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality last week tried to put out some fires after reports surfaced about the city’s water that “is not safe for human consumption”. Last week an English newspaper reported that water supplying the Livingstone Hospital was “tainted with potentially deadly bacteria”. It further said that “independent test results of water samples taken from around the city also show that

some areas have water contaminated by disease-causing bacteria, while much of the city’s water contains no ‘free chlorine’, which is needed to kill off harmful contaminants.” In response to this the Municipality sent out a press release saying “results from the laboratory are noted, but it must be reiterated that if samples are taken from infrastructure that is not under the control of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, it is difficult to acknowledge it as a reflection of the water quality supplied to that particular site.” Ongama Mtimka, Spokesperson

for the NMBM, admitted that water failure occurs, but that the NMBM’s water complies with 97,4% to South African National Standard (SANS) and 99,9% for chemical and microbiological compliance as indicated in the report to the Portfolio Committee of September 2. “The audited results referred to in the 2011 Blue Drop Report clearly indicate on page 54 that the NMBM scored 98,9% and 98,7% for chemical and microbiological compliance and not 90% as stated by the newspaper,” Mtimka said. According to him water is tested

Upgrade on the cards for once popular Happy Valley TANYA VAN ZYL THE once-popular tourist attraction of Port Elizabeth, Happy Valley, has exciting plans of development on the cards to restore it to its former glory. Recently the item of how to capitalise on the Bay’s tourism potential by upgrading Happy Valley, was brought before the Human Settlements Committee to approve the final draft of the Happy Valley Local Spatial Development Framework (LSDF). According to Dean Biddulph, DA Councillor for Ward 2, the LSDF is essentially an exciting, new mas-

ter plan that will define how the area in question will be developed in future. “The framework area covers a far greater area than simply Happy Valley, and the boundaries for the LSDF in fact run from Driftsands Drive in Humewood, along Strandfontein Road to Second Avenue in Summerstrand and then returns along the beachfront back to Driftsands,” Biddulph explained. The framework will now be going to council for approval and thereafter the wheels can be set in motion to develop this area. “It is exciting as a lot of work and public participation has taken place and the final result promises to max-

imise the available land for mixed use development, whilst still being aware of the need to preserve environmentally sensitive portions.” Biddulph believes it is “absolutely essential” to maximise the potential of this area by means of opening up additional revenue streams for the city, “whilst accommodating the need for more commercial activity and local attractions in our greater beachfront area.” “This is something that simply has to be pursued if we hope to tackle the problems of job creation, tourism and more vigorous economic development in our metro,” he said.

daily at each treatment works, the reticulation is tested every second week and the reservoirs are tested monthly. “These results are submitted monthly to the Department of Water Affairs, which also monitors the compliance of the NMBM.” He further said water is treated and disinfected using chlorine at treatment facilities as far away as 120 km. “The main goal is therefore to produce water that is bacteria free and safe for human consumption. The NMBM optimises its disinfec-

Biological mother of boys sought EXPRESS INDABA REPORTER FIKISWA Ntloko, maternal aunt of Mandisi Mbuzo (15) and Sikhulule Mbuzo (12), is looking for their biological mother who is known as Ntombizine Mbukuqu. She also used Nosango Mbuzo as her marital name. Fikiswa Ntloko claims that she last heard from Nosango Mbukuqu in 2002 when she left the children concerned with the late Siyabonga Mbuzo who was the biological father of the concerned children and Fikiswa Ntloko’s older brother. Since Siyabonga Mbuzo’s death the children concerned became Fikiswa Ntloko’s responsibility and she is now struggling to acquire any basic services for the children concerned as they do not have birth certificates because their mother, Ntombizine Mbukuqu failed to register them with the Department of Home Affairs. The Mbuzo and Ntloko families are now in desperate need of Ntombizine Mbukuqu so that she can register the children concerned with home affairs so that they would be able to get birth certificates.

tion to achieve this goal and also has intermediate disinfection stations to monitor and control this process as well,” Mtimka explained. He admitted that the NMBM is disappointed in not achieving the Blue Drop status again, but this does not indicate the water consumed by residents is in any way unsafe. “All citizens of the NMBM can be assured that the water they drink is safe to drink and now that construction of the Nooitgedagt Low Level Scheme has commenced, they are also assured of water for the future.”

This inaugural competition was aimed at involving the youth in crime fighting strategies as part of the KwaNobuhle Community Police Forum (CPF) Pilot Initiative Youth Project run in partnership with SAPS Uitenhage. Nine schools in the KwaNobuhle area took part in the competition each being represented by two grade 10 to 12 learners who debated under the theme: Corporal punishment is no longer allowed in schools: Do you think the abolition of corporal punishment is a contributing factor in the escalation of crime in the schools? “It is Grade 10 learners Athenkosi Fatman and Nolukhanyiso Makinana who proudly brought home the trophy to Phaphani High School,” said Police Spokesperson Lt.Col. Priscilla Naidu, adding that the duo were the toast of the school at the function held during their school assembly recently to present the school with the winners trophy and certificates. The Department of Safety and Liaison Acting District Manager Nontle Tabata who handed out the certificates to the proud winners commended the school for their work which was displayed by the two learners. “I am very proud of the duo (Makinana and Fatman) who represented the school so well. The school made the right choice in electing them. We will always cherish this trophy and will display it at the school entrance foyer,” said an elated school principal Welcome Sikiwe, adding that he was confident his school will repeat the feat next year. “Phaphani High School’s youth works closely with the police. Ten learners from this school accompanied police on their awareness talks on women and child abuse during the Women’s Month in August,” CPF chairperson Monica Mbatsha pointed out, adding that the youth involved also addressed other youths and teachers on the subject. “Well done Phaphani High School,” she said.

INDABA NEWS•NUUS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2011

NCEBA DLADLA NELSON Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) hosted the Steve Biko Memorial Lecture at the South Campus Auditorium in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth on Monday, September 12. The 34th anniversary of the death of this icon of the struggle for liberation who died at the age of 30 years in mysterious circumstances under the apartheid regime on 12 September 1977 was presented by NMMU, Canrad and AZASCO. Former Minister of Science and Technology and Azapo Honorary President Mosibudi Mangena delivered the keynote address. Talking about plans to engage the Steve Biko Foundation in order to explore areas of collaboration and joint programmes and projects, Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Zanoxolo Wayile took time to urge all South Africans to celebrate the life, contribution and sacrifice of Steve Biko. Stephen Bantu Biko, who was born in Ginsberg in the Eastern Cape on 18th December 1946, Wayile said, belongs in the pantheon of heroes and heroines, not only in South Africa, but alongside the freedom fighters of all countries which were subjected to colonialism, racism, oppression and brutality. Port Elizabeth, which forms part

of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, the mayor said, bears the ignominious label of the place where Biko was severely tortured before being driven in the back of a police van to Pretoria where he died as a result of the torture. This, he added, makes it especially important for the residents of Nelson Mandela Bay to honour Biko and his selfless contribution. “Without the sacrifices and selfless contributions of heroes like Steve Biko, we would not have the freedom and opportunities that we have today. Biko’s life and sacrifice epitomises the struggle against apartheid. His death and especially the way in which he died are stark reminders of how brutal a force freedom activists had to endure so that we could be free,” said Wayile. This was the 11th memorial lecture presented by the Biko Foundation since the one addressed by UCT Vice-Principal Prof. Njabulo Ndebele in 2000. Other luminaries that have given lectures on this former University of Natal Medical Student and Black Consciousness leader, the third son of the late Mr and Mrs Mzimgayi Biko, who helped form the SA Student Organisation (SASO) and was founder of Black Peoples Convention (BPC) and was later detained in terms of section 6 of Terrorism, Act were UCT’s Prof Zakes Mda and the world-famous author Chinua Achebe.

All that azz at Red Location NCEBA DLADLA JAZZ lovers came from all corners of the Nelson Mandela Bay on Sunday, September 11 to celebrate their music at the Red Location Jazz Festival. The festival was held as part of Heritage Month in an effort to promote township tourism and also the talent of the city’s local jazz artists. PE Express Indaba reporter Nceba Dladla was there to witness the people singing, dancing and jazzing up to the smooth sounds of Titi Luzipho, Mo-Jazz Band, Take Note, Retsi Pule (a guest from East London) and the Jazz Divas, among others. In the words of Shakespeare, people were saying: “If music be the food of love, play on, give me an excess of it” and indeed Titi Luzipho, Siseko and friends, including Poeticsoul, had them asking for more.

Indaba Art & Entertainment Route 67 launched to mark Tata Madiba’s 67 years of devotion to the community

INDABA REPORTER RESIDENTS and visitors from all over can look forward to an exquisite Lifestyle Conference to be held over the same weekend South Africans will celebrate Heritage Day throughout the country. The three-day event will take place from Friday, September 23 until Sunday, September 25 and will provide a platform for the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) to launch the Heritage Route 67. The MBDA has spent approximately R250 million in investing in the municipal infrastructure – since it came into existence in 2003 in the CBDs of both Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage. “Our target audience for the conference will be the construction and property development industry, together with political and business leaders in the Metro,” MBDA CEO Pierre Voges, said. Route 67 will officially be launched on the Saturday. Voges said the aim of the route was to turn the Donkin Reserve into a tourist attraction with the focus on art, culture and heritage – a place where people could celebrate their diverse cultures.

“It was recognised that former President Nelson Mandela after whom the Metro is named, should be the central figure for the development. And to support this the concept Route 67 was developed, celebrating through art the 67 years he devoted to public life. “The longer-term goal is to take the concept of Route 67 beyond Nelson Mandela Bay to the rest of South Africa,” he added. The journey from the Campanile up Jetty Street across Vuyisile Mini Square up St Mary’s Terrace to the Donkin Reserve will be marked by 67 pieces of artwork by local emerging artists. “Route 67 will feature 67 places where people can pause and where there will be newspaper headlines showing what was happening in South Africa, and the world during each of the years Mandela was in public life. A special board for “graffiti” allowing people to record their impressions is also erected. A few artworks have been incorporated into the Red Location Museum to link that development with Route 67. As a prelude to the conference and launch of Route 67, the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA,) will transport over 3 000 high school pupils

from all areas in Port Elizabeth. The scholars will form a line on the route and place their ‘X’ with their names and surnames so as to recreate the voting line of the 1994 elections. We will also use this opportunity to expose the learners to the route and the art pieces in order to teach them about South Africa’s struggle history and the Eastern Cape heritage. The third and last day of the Lifestyle Conference will include the Nelson Mandela Bay Urban Run. “The run will see participants taking on a challenging 12 km Urban obstacle Trail Run through the historic parts of the CBD and will include numerous urban obstacles like scaling the walls of Fort Frederick, cable walking across the Baakens River and negotiating the steep St Augustine’s stairs. The run is open to individuals and teams of four runners. The cost of entry is R100 and the money raised will be allocated for the education fees of the children from the Coega Door of Hope. Moreover the MBDA has spent approximately R250 million in investing in the municipal infrastructure – since it came into existence in 2003 in the CBDs of both Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage.

EP is the women’s rugby champ for 2011 INDABA REPORTER EASTERN Province won their fourth women’s interprovincial championships when they defeated the Blue Bulls by 29-18 in the final in Pretoria on Saturday. The team from Port Elizabeth lead by 10 - 8 at the break and turned up the pressure in the second half. By winning the final, EP made up for their home defeat of 43 13 against the Bulls earlier in the season. According to Mahlubi Puzi, manager of women’s rugby at the South African Rugby Union, the standard of rugby this season was exceptionally high.

“It was a great season and one we won’t forget soon. The fact that EP could come back from their big defeat earlier in the season to the Blue Bulls to clinch the title, shows their resolve. It was a superb final with rugby of the highest standard played and it bodes well for the future of women’s rugby in South Africa,” said Puzi. EP outside centre Pumeza Gadu, who also plays for South Africa, scored three tries in the final for the winning team, while flanker Sindiswa Mathanda scored the visitors’ fourth try. Zandile Nojoko added a conversion and a penalty goal, with Siphosethu Tshingana adding two further conversions. The Blue Bulls’ points

Celebrities to hit PE for Sixes INDABA REPORTER PORT Elizabeth will play host to the first of six Celebrity Cricket Sixes tournaments to be held at venues across South Africa from September 24. Organisers have announced an allstar line-up of over 50 sporting icons and entertainers who will make up the six-a-side teams doing battle in the name of fun and charity. Following the success of last year’s inaugural event in PE, Kemsley Park has been chosen as the new venue for the kick-off of the nationwide tour. Thereafter, the road show will visit Bloemfontein (October 16), Randburg (October 23), Pretoria (November 5), Durban (November 19) and Cape Town (November 26). Although the format resembled that of the Hong Kong Sixes, organiser Laurence Finn said the public could expect to see rugby, soccer and cricket World Cup icons go up against Olympic athletes and entertainers. Makhaya Ntini heads up the host of famous faces that includes fellow cricketers Dave Callaghan, Kenny McEwan, Pieter Strydom and Rudi Bryson, who will each captain a side. Some of the most recognisable rugby names in the squad are Springbok legends Danie Gerber, Robbie Kempson and De Wet Barry, and EP Kings players Rory Duncan, Mzwandile Stick and Jaco van Schalkwyk. They will be joined by Olympic pole-vaulter Okkert Brits, javelin

thrower Philip Spies and former national superbike champion Arushen Moodley, among others. Finn said the idea for the tournament originated in England, but his company had secured the South African licensing rights and added the celebrity twist. “You always sit at home and wonder which sporting celebs would be good at another sport. This tournament answers those questions.” He said the unique handicap format allows teams to remain competitive. “Each team consists of a national cricket legend, a provincial cricketer, a rugby legend, two other non-cricketers as well as a business figure.” As the fastest form of cricket, Finn said the Celebrity Cricket Sixes was designed for entertainment. “Each tournament consists of 10 matches and each of these lasts for six overs a side.” He said the response from celebrity participants had been positive. “They had all heard about last year’s event and were keen to help us take it national.” Finn said all the players had donated their time because it was for a good cause. The event’s charitable beneficiaries are the Cancer Association of South Africa and JAG Foundation. As was the case last year, players will interact with spectators before, during and after matches. All Rugby World Cup matches would be shown live on the big screen, said Finn. “Who wouldn’t want to watch a test match alongside his favourite sporting icon?”

Each tournament features a charity dinner the evening before where celebrities will share their funniest stories. The PE dinner takes place on

Friday, September 23, and the theme – “What happens on tour, stays on tour; or does it?” – says it all. The cost is R2 500 for a table of 10 or R250 per

person. A spitbraai is included. Visit www.celebrity6s.com, join the Facebook group or follow cricket6s on Twitter.

Three Wells Estate teams namely, Newcastle FC, City Express FC and Manchester FC as well as United Comrades FC – the only team from Kwazakhele – provided fans with a good soccer exhibition. In the first scintillating semi-final, United Comrades threw everything into the game against City Express but still lost 4 - 5 on penalties after

regulation time of 1 - 1. In the other semi-final, Newcastle ousted a gutsy Manchester United 4 - 3 on penalties after a 1 - 1 draw in regulation time. The finals between Newcastle FC and City Express FC produced the highest level of excellence. It was, however, Newcastle that overcame the high-riding and youthful City Express FC 5 - 4 after the 3 - 3 tie in full-time score. Welcome Klate Apleni, Khanya Tinini and Thulani Lupuwana banged the City Express FC goals while Newcastle FC goals came courtesy of Bulelani Bobani and a brace by Siviwe Mgedesi.

Weekend boxing treat in KwaNobuhle NCEBA DLADLA NELSON MANDELA Bay boxing lovers will be in for a treat this Saturday as Andile Boxing Promotions brings together an eight-bout bill at the Sizakele Konzi Community Hall in KwaNobuhle, Uitenhage from 6pm. In the main bout local pugilists who are gunning to fight for their provincial title Makhosonke Zwengu and Leon Mriba will trade leather over eight rounds in the middleweight division. Fireworks could be expected when Uitenhage’s idol Xolani Mpushe clashes with Port Elizabeth’s upand-coming Lwandile Phillips over six rounds in the flyweight division. Phillips will be trying to use former

Eastern Cape flyweight champion Mpushe as a stepladder in order to challenge for the title himself. Another fight expected to entertain the paying public is a six-round Junior Featherweight clash between Uitenhage’s hopeful Asanda Jacobs and his opponent Unathi Mntwana from Plettenberg Bay. In the other six-round bouts Mzoxolo Ndwayana will lock horns with William Seswa (Welterweight division) and Luyanda Madolo will fight against Lusindiso Siyo in the strawweight division while Athenkosi Mazilane and Masonwabe Mgcuwe will trade leather with Simo Mbande and Nkululeko Jantjies in the bantam and junior bantamweight divisions, respectively. The promotion’s head,

Andile Siqwepu, said he was hopeful that boxing fans will support this tournament in big numbers as it has been a while since a professional boxing tournament took place here. “This is my way of helping to develop boxing in Nelson Mandela Bay. I hope fans will come in droves to support it. This way, we are keeping the youth in sport and out of crime. Through boxing, boxers earn a living and bring in something to support their families,” said Siqwepu. Siqwepu highlighted that he organised the tournament out of his own pocket and was hoping local businesses would support such ventures so that boxers earn a living and boxing fans are being entertained. Admission is R20 adults and R10 children.
