Metro clinics still healthy ­ says Kupelo NCEBA DLADLA


HE Democratic Alliance (DA) is up in arms with the ruling African National Congress (ANC) to come clean on the future of clinics in Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality which the DA says are facing closure.

ba’s understanding that the metro Council took a resolution to hand over primary health services to the province and that the province was making plans to do the takeover.

He said the province was in the process of taking over primary health services from local municipalities including Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality. Taking over the services, Kupe-

lo added, would obviously result in money being owed and his department was in the process of paying that amount. “The MEC (Sicelo Gqobana) has in-

structed the department to do the transfer and we are currently in the process of doing it. We’d like to ensure local residents that their health care is being looked after,” said Kupelo.


But the provincial health department says there is nothing to worry about. According to a statement by the DA’s Shadow Health MEC, John Cupido, the Nelson Mandela Bay metro is owed millions of rand by the Provincial Health Department - an amount which if not paid could result in the clinics closing and patients being denied primary health care. “Since taking over the running of the municipality’s clinics last year, the EC Department of Health (DoH) has had to pay the cost in excess of R90 million, of which R19m has been transferred,” claimed Cupido in the statement. Cupido believes that though it has no budget to do so, the metro is currently footing the bill to run the clinics and is therefore forced to “siphon funds for other votes and projects to keep the clinics open.” “It has come to a stage that if the DoH does not pay at least R52m of the outstanding amount by (last) Friday, all clinics within the metro will effectively be shut down, leaving thousands of patients out in the cold without much needed treatment and medication,” wrote Cupido in the statement. Provincial Health Department spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo has, however, admitted that the province owed the metro some money but he would not be drawn into divulging how much it was. Kupelo confirmed PE Express Inda-

Motherwell’s five­piece band, Shoelace (pho­ to) will be launching its brand at the PE Opera House this Friday at 6pm. This group made PE proud when they won the Hansa Pilsener Leg­ ends in the Making compe­ tition and were chosen as one of six finalists to open for R&B star, Usher, at Orlando Stadi­ um earlier this year.

Sangomas called to protect their dignity against ‘Tsotsis’ NCEBA DLADLA MKHULU Masheleni, a sangoma from Whittlesea near Queenstown, was incensed when he read PE Express Indaba’s front-page story last week of a local sangoma who was arrested for allegedly raping a 16-year old girl he was supposed to heal. A member of Traditional Healers Organisation (THO) Masheleni (67) was visiting Ezinyoka in Port Elizabeth last week when he read what he

said “was evil if it was true”. It was reported that the girl, who was believed to be bewitched, was sent to the sangoma’s house in order to be exorcised from evil spirits (amafufunyana). According to the Police, it is alleged that the man instead threatened the girl with supernatural powers and then raped her. The girl escaped from the ordeal and told a relative who later informed the police. According to Police Spokesperson Lt. Col. Priscilla Naidu, the 32 year-old suspect ap-

peared in KwaNobuhle Magistrate Court on Monday and was granted the R1000 bail with certain conditions attached to the bail. “He is to report to KwaNobuhle police station every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday between 8am and 6pm,” said Naidu, adding that the suspect may not interfere with the victim, her family or any other witnesses. The case was remanded to Wednesday 6 June. Masheleni said people have a right to trust an inyanga who claims to have powers to heal.

“The question is, does an inyanga have a right to rape a client? The answer is, no! Healing of patients has nothing to do with sex,” said Masheleni. “Was this sangoma known to this family? Does he have a record of ever healing anyone in the community? Does he belong to any Traditional Healers Organisation and does he have a practising licence? These are questions that come to my mind,” said Masheleni. Masheleni believes izangoma should respect the purity of their an-

cestral calling and not stain it with the dirty work of their hands. What the man is accused of is sexual abuse and deserves punishment by law, if found guilty, he said. Mkhulu Masheleni said he was hoping izangoma would work together to protect their dignity “against tsotsis” who are working to tarnish their good image. “There are people I know in Nelson Mandela Bay who will surely stand up and be counted to protect the ancient art of ubungoma,” said Mkhulu Masheleni.

Foster mother arrested and denied bail for lost Zenixole NCEBA DLADLA THREE people appeared in court for the disappearance of a Port Elizabeth toddler Zenixole Solomon (3). Zenixole of NU6, Makangiso Street in Swartkops Valley went missing last year and her fostermother Xoliswa Mashiqana and two advocates at the High Court, Sandile Baya and Thandile Ngcoza were arrested in connection with the child’s disappearance from her home about eight months ago. Wide police searches have been conducted without success but the latest developments have pointed to the foster mother allegedly being involved in a scam to defraud insurance taken by the toddler’s late mother before she passed on. The three are believed to have taken part in an insurance policy scam

which it is believed, resulted in the little girl’s disappearance. “Three people have been arrested and as I far as I know they have also appeared in court facing charges of fraud and corruption,” said police spokesperson Warrant Officer Dumile Gwavu. According to a newspaper report in The Herald yesterday (Tuesday) Mashiqana’s bail application was postponed to 21 May whilst the two gentlemen were released on R500 bail each. Gwavu refused to comment further. “The matter is still at a very sensitive stage at the moment. The child has not been found yet. We are busy with investigations and will make an announcement as soon as we finalise our investigation and are able to say where the child is,” said W-O Gwavu.

A major breakthrough in murder case on the cards ­ police say NCEBA DLADLA PORT Elizabeth members of the South African Police Service (SAPS) believe they are on the verge of solving the case of the brutal murder of 23-year-old Rhodes University student Lelona Fufu who was murdered while on the way to her graduation ceremony three weeks ago. Fufu, of Motherwell, who was to graduate with a BSc Hons deZenixole Solomon who is still missing.

gree in Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics was murdered on the Addo Road while hitch-hiking to Rhodes University in Grahamstown. A 28-year old suspect who was arrested for rape in an unrelated incident at Kamvelihle, near Motherwell last Friday, has been linked to the murder that left the whole province and country reeling in shock. Speaking to PE Express Indaba on Monday, police spokesperson Captain Andre Beetge said police believe the man is also a suspect in the mur-

der. The rape took place only weeks after the murder. Captain Beetge has confirmed that the man, whose identity cannot be revealed at this stage, has been “interrogated by the investigating officers” whilst at St Albans prison and the information that they have, he added, suggests that they have the right suspect for the murder. Beetge was quick to add though that police were still busy with investigations.

PORT Elizabeth passengers had to wait more than five hours for a bus to Cape Town on Monday evening. The Greyhound Coach which was supposed to leave the city from Greenacres by 9.45 pm actually left at 3.15 am of the following day, causing much anger, frustration and disappointment. Passengers arrived and checkedin at the boarding place 30 minutes before the departure. They claim they received SMSmessages that told them the bus was going to be late; first by an hour, later by half an hour which became five hours. “Dear valued passenger. The Greyhound service from Durban to Cape

Town via Port Elizabeth has been delayed by 3h15min. Please be at the designated stop 30min prior to departure. The delay in service is sincerely regretted, Customer Care,” read another message sent to passengers at 12.07am. KwaZakhele’s Unathi Ndlotyeni (28) was going to miss her 8am appointment at the Correctional Services in Caledon. The bus was supposed to drop her off at 7.25am at her destination. “I am going to miss the interview for an internship. I am worried and concerned because this is my future at stake here,” said a visibly distraught Ndlotyeni. Cape Town’s Eunice Festile (42) who came to PE for a short visit was worried about her 12-year old child who had to miss writing examina-

tions because of the “inefficiency” she did not expect from the luxury coach, she said. Greyhound spokesperson Linda Swanepoel said they regretted what had happened but it was not in their hands. “The coach was originally an hour late because of the roadworks in Kokstad, Mthatha, Butterworth and Peddie. We told the customers. But the second time we told them we would be an hour and a half late was because of a tyre burst that happened 80km before PE,” said Swanepoel. Swanepoel said the late passengers could write a letter of complaint and submit it to their Customer Care Centre. Otherwise, she said, “we can also ask our Supervisor in Cape Town to write a letter explaining why they were late.”


Major Tourism Award for Jeya’s NCEBA DLADLA JEYA Jazz Corner Pub and Grub received a major tourism award as the Hidden Treasure of Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality last Friday. The husband and wife team of Jeya and Noxolo Sume runs the entertainment venue in New Brighton which they started from humble beginnings. They have been awarded by the Nelson Mandela Bay and its agency Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism for standing out in promoting the city as tourist destination. Jeya’s Corner Pub and Grub was chosen to take part in the recent Tourism Indaba in Durban and that was a pin-



nacle of their rise to glory, said Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism Marketing Manager Titus Chuene. Indaba, which is owned by Tourism South Africa, is the largest tourism event on the African calendar and the third in the world which exposes Southern Africa’s best tourism products and attractions, explained Chuene. According to Chuene, when tourists visit Port Elizabeth they can be taken to see the Pavilion and other attractions and then be taken to the township to see the Red Location Museum after which they go to have lunch at Jeya’s - that’s the whole package. “Mama Jey (referring to Noxolo) is putting Nelson Mandela Bay on the map. We applaud her,” he added. While NMBT’s task is to

market the city, Chuene said local entrepreneurs and especially SMMEs have to market their businesses and products and Mama Jeya did just that. Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Tourism Acting Director Carleen Arends also commended Noxolo for her love of her job and dedication to her work. “Mama Jeya does not wait for things to happen, she makes them happen. If she does not know something, she asks, and when you tell her to do something, she does it. How I wish other SMMEs can take a leaf out of her book,” said Arends. “We cannot say the sky is the limit for you. There are so many opportunities in the tourism industry. Continue to take them, you are making us proud, “ said NMBT Chief Mandlakazi Skefile.

Local artists to stage during Major Music Festival in Bay Stadium NCEBA DLADLA IT is all systems go for the major music festival set to take place at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on 2 June, said Zeranza 299 (Pty) Limited Music Director Andrea Wessels. Featuring International Superstars like R’n B crooner, song-writer and multi-award winning Ne-yo, Shaggy of the Mr Boombastic fame, Ludacris, Proteje, Micasa and Zakes Bantwini to mention but a few, this festival is regarded as a breakthrough by the organisers. But local artists will also get their

moment in the spotlight. Wessels told PE Express Indaba that there would be a second stage for local up-andcoming artists and DJs to take the stage and shine during the festival. “It’s the first of its kind in the Eastern Cape - the province that is usually disregarded in events of such a magnitude,” said Wessels who is still optimistic about drawing 55 000 fans at a cost of between R150 and R550 per ticket which might be reduced if many sponsors come on board. Zeranza has worked with Jamaican-born America Lloyd Stanbury to get the contracts of these major artists signed and Roysten Cloete will be assisted by the Metro Arts and Culture Department to include local art-

ists for the second stage. Speaking during the media launch of the event, Portfolio Councillor on Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture Babalwa Lobishe commended Zeranza for the initiative and promised on behalf of the metro municipality to support the festival - through buying tickets. “We appreciate it when service providers come up with such initiatives like this festival without needing any financial support from the municipality. We’ll support the initiative by buying tickets to attend the festival,” said Cllr. Lobishe, adding that through this mega festival, Nelson Mandela Bay will receive exposure as a tourist destination.

Luvuyo is bright Star for Bay FM NCEBA DLADLA GROWING up, Luvuyo Nyembezi always wanted to be a star behind the microphone. And now this Bay FM Community Radio Production Manager and Presenter is living his dream. Luvuyo, otherwise known as Star, also does adverts, radio jingles and drop-ins at the Westering-based Bay FM Community Radio station which broadcasts in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa to almost 100 000 listeners per day, according to latest RAMS. Star also presents the Late Night Ride show which broadcasts on Sundays from 10.30pm to midnight. Not only that, Star likes to hold the fort during outside broadcasts as a stage manager or technician. But it is in his national MTN Radio Awards nomination as Best Community Radio Presenter that he finds the most satisfaction and reward. “I did not win the award but

being nominated was enough encouragement. It was a good feeling that I was at least being recognised among the best in the business,” said Star, adding that mingling with the top radio announcers and DJs in Jozi during the awards, also gave him an opportunity to learn more. “The experience was incredible. I would do it again,” he said. Star grew up in KwaNonkcampa near King William’s Town and got his nickname because he was always ahead of the rest academically. He always wanted to be involved with radio because he loves radio and music. His studies for a Diploma in Music Engineering, helped Star to discover that there is more to music than just singing. He now records, arranges and masters music for artists. Advising those who aspire to join the world of showbiz Star says: “One must have talent. And althought talent is very important, you must also have education; then you

can go far because talent alone is not enough,” * Bay FM’s Afternoon Drive Show anchored by Andrew Llewellyn and Kim Robertson and Etienne Calitz won the MTN Radio Award in the community category.

Shoelace brand launch in PE NCEBA DLADLA MOTHERWELL’s five-piece band Shoelace will be launching its brand at the PE Opera House Friday 11 May, at 6pm. Band members and old friends Ndumiso Ntantiso, Zusakhe Gysman, Mvuzo Mnyaka, Xola Kulati and Sinoxolo Mbuthuma feel that this is the right time for them to show the world what they are really made of. This is the group that made PE and the greater Nelson Mandela Bay proud when

they won the Hansa Pilsner Legends in the Making competition and were chosen as one of six finalists to open for R&B star Usher at Orlando Stadium in 2012. The group has opened for artists like New Holland, Captain Stu, Don’t Panic, Jamali, Danny K, Poetic Soul and Anne Rosenquist. They have also performed at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival and won the Encore Award. Band spokesperson Bulelani Matenjwa describes the group’s music as Rocker-

Soul. “Rocker soul is the kind of music we created on our own according to the background we have as members. It is pop rock with African elements, blues and soul, sung mostly in English but also in isiXhosa,” said Matenjwa, adding that the event is going to be filled with music and love as the band’s name actually entails. “A shoelace is a symbol of love and being together Shoelace ties things together and they don’t easily come undone.” Admission is R60 at the door.

Heavy Jacobs won fight against Mriba, but lost the EC title NCEBA DLADLA UITENHAGE’s boxing sensation Unathi Jacobs must decide his future in the ring and work hard if he wants to become a champion, said Nelson Mandela Bay Boxing South Africa (BSA) Service Provider Mthunzi Mapitiza. Former Baby Champ Jacobs knocked out (KO’d) Eastern Cape Super Middleweight Champion Leon Mriba of Port Elizabeth in the fourth round of their 10-round scheduled bout at Mzamomhle Community Hall in Kirkwood last week. Coming to the fight, fans expected fireworks after Mriba surprised the former amateur star by stopping him in the first round of their scheduled six-round bout almost a year ago. Jacobs was already approved to fight for the South African Supermiddleweight championship at the time. Tipping the scale at 82 kg, an over-

weight Jacobs could not make the 76,2 kg weight-limit set for Mriba’s title. The fight was therefore changed to catchweight - non-title fight. Though he was KO’d, Mriba remains the champion. “It’s been a long time since Jacobs fought after suffering that shocking KO defeat to Mriba about a year ago. He was huge! It seems he was not training during that long lay-off. Jacobs must train hard and drop the weight because he’s got talent and skill. The heavier divisions will be too strong for him,” said Mapitiza, who praised Jacobs’ trainer and father Aaron for being a knowledgeable trainer. “I struggled against Mriba because I suffered with the weight loss (from 89 kgs). I think I’ll have to settle for 79 kg limit - where I’ll be comfortable,” said Jacobs. “We lost against a heavyweight. That’s all I can say,” said Mriba’s trainer Mzwandile Sidina after the fight.

Record turnout at Spar Women’s Challenge PORT Elizabeth’s beachfront was a sea of orange as a record 12 200 runners set off in the 19th annual SPAR Women’s Challenge from King’s Beach on Saturday morning. While most of the participants – ranging in ages from nine to 90 – took to the streets in the name of fun and charity, there was also some serious racing at the head of affairs. Rene Kalmer, who will be representing South Africa in the marathon at the Olympic Games in London this year, clinched the 10km title, while 13-year-old Simone Weitz, from Johannesburg, took home the 5km crown. Adding to the festive atmosphere was the throng of male participants in the 5km, all in varying degrees of drag. The main event, the second in SPAR’s fiverace national Grand Prix series, was more serious with two Olympic marathon qualifiers in Kalmer and team-mate Irvette van Blerk getting off to a fast start. Kalmer, racing in the colours of Nedbank Running Club Central Gauteng, built up an early lead, which she maintained throughout to win comfortably in 33:30.

Zintle Xiniwe, from Mr Price Western Province, was runner-up in 34.01 with Van Blerk completing the podium in 34.15. Having picked up a hamstring niggle while training, Kalmer called her win “a miracle”. “I haven’t been able to train all week, and even thought of pulling out.” Van Blerk, who was coming down with flu, said she had “tired legs”. “It wasn’t one of my greatest races, but I’m happy with third.” While Kalmer always loves running in the Friendly City, Van Blerk was still getting to grips with the wind, which had picked up during the 10km. Sonja Laxton, completing her 74th Women’s Challenge race, snapped up the grandmaster’s title. Comrades gold medallist Grace de Oliviera won the masters’ category. As the high school with the most entries, Lawson Brown received a Core Technologies laptop. Lorraine Primary School and St George’s Hospital each received R2 500 as the primary school and company with the most participants.

New lease of life for Stadium HELGA VAN STAADEN


HE Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium received a new lease of life last week.

Not only did the stadium operators, Access Management, receive the green light on Friday from the municipality’s sport, recreation and culture committee for the renewal of its lease, but it was also announced that the Metro will be one of the four host cities for the 2013 Afcon soccer tournament. In addition, Die Burger reported on Monday that rumours abound that the PSL team Maritzburg United is considering moving its home stadium from the Harry Gwala sta-

dium in Pietermaritzburg to the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, if not on a permanent basis, for at least more than the three matches which have already been played in PE this season. Concern was expressed recently about the Metro’s delay in renewing Access Management’s lease, which expires end of June and the effect this will have on the EP Kings Super 15 bid. But on the same day that Access Management received the green light from the Metro, also came the announcement by Fikile Mbalula, Minister of sport and recreation, that the Afcon Cup matches will be played in Mbombela, Port Elizabeth, Durban and Rustenburg. Although the number of games

that will be played here will only be announced at a later stage, confirmation has been given that four soccer teams will be accommodated in the city. Kevin Hustler, CEO of the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber, on Friday congratulated the metro on its successful bid to be a host city for the 2013 Afcon Cup. “The announcement by the Minister of sport and recreation shows the confidence of the sporting fraternity in the capabilities of our city, to host international sporting events of this magnitude,” said Hustler. “Our beautiful city and our world-class stadium will once again have the opportunity to be showcased to the world.

This opportunity will strengthen ties with the rest of Africa and links in with Tourism’s focus on developing sports tourism in the metro,” said Hustler.

Maritzburg United While the Metro has not made it a secret that they are looking for a PSL-club to be an anchor tenant of the stadium, metro officials would, however, not confirm over the weekend whether a contract has in fact been signed with Maritzburg United. Negotiations were, however, described as being in an “advanced stage”. Maritzburg United was paid R750 000 by the Metro for each of the three matches played in Port Elizabeth this year.

REAL CITY broke a long drought of silverware to become one of the best teams in the Motherwell Football Association (MOFA) when they narrowly beat Lion City 1-0 in the MOFA Mayoral Cup finals at Motherwell NU2 Stadium on April 27. Real City, affectionately known as The Birds, earned a well-deserved sweet victory of 2-0 over their neighbours Crystal Palace in their semi-finals while Lion City snatched a hard-fought triumph of 4-3 from the high-riding Royal Buccaneers in the semi-finals as well. The Birds were not intimidated by the hundreds of supporters of Lion City as they piled more pressure thus making matters difficult for their counterparts. At the halfway mark of the first half, Siyabulela Ngqiyaza of The Birds scored the goal from the penalty spot to make the final score 1-0

THE chicken is coming home to roost and the Nelson Mandela Bay Vodacom League outfit and the best hope of long-term Premier Soccer League (PSL) participation, Bay Stars FC will be playing for maximum three-points against Tembu Royals FC of Mthatha at the Gelvandale Stadium this Friday. Kick off is at 7pm. With only four games to play, second on the log Bay Stars Managing Director Tony Lovegrove reckons that his team with 50 points must beat Tembu Royals at home if they are entertaining any hope of toppling log-leaders FC Tornado (55 points) who will also be engaging fourth-placed FC Buffalo (45 points)

nicipal manager of the Msunduzi Municipality, Mxolisi Nkosi, the team is paid only R14 000 to play matches in Pietermaritzburg. PSL spokesperson, Altaaf Kazi, said the deadline for clubs to submit their stadiums of choice is 18 May. Farouk Kadodia, chairman of Maritzburg United, confirmed that there was an offer from Nelson Mandela Bay to play more matches in PE. He said that while he is not yet certain about how many matches will be played in the Harry Gwala stadium, there will still be matches played there as there is no chance of their playing all their matches in Port Elizabeth. ) Additional reporting by Thobani Ngqulunga of The Witness.

Dubbed “The Super Friday”- this leg is involving four EC top four teams going for glory and Bay Stars will be encouraged by their return to Gelvandale their winning grounds with a 100% record. “We still maintain a 100% track record at home. This excellent track record should boost the confidence of the side and hopefully we can convert it into points against a very close contender,” said Lovegrove.
