‘Who pulled the trigger?’ Security guard’s family still has no answers people dead.



EMBERS of South African Police Service (SAPS) are still busy with investigations after a security guard was killed during a shootout between police and armed robbers at United National Breweries near Markman, Port Elizabeth, on Friday, April 20 which resulted in five

Circumstances that led to the death of Thembani Makubalo (25) who was employed by SQ Risk Security are still not clear. And now his family wants answers. “Who pulled the trigger? We’d like to know,” said Thembani’s grandfather Saki Makubalo from his home in Hamburg, Peddie. According to Makubalo senior, Thembani had a bright future ahead of him. “His life must be accounted for.

Who killed him and why?” asked the elderly man. Thembani’s mother Thembeka (45) described her son as humble and respectful. He attended the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church in Peddie before he moved to Kamvelihle in Port Elizabeth to be closer to work, she said. At his funeral, SDA members described Thembani as a good person whose loss was felt by many. Before Thembani’s funeral SQ Risk Security Managing Director, Wessels Scheepers, told PE Express Indaba that Thembani was in their employ. He was new in the position and had worked only 11 days for them before his death. Scheepers said at that stage that he was trying

to get hold of Thembani’s family to assist with funeral arrangements. But when the family did not hear from the security firm they consulted Khula Community Development Project lawyer Petros Majola who works for the EC Provincial Children’s Rights Organisation. Majola is now acting on behalf of the family. “The Makubalos came to my office with a PE Express Indaba copy which quoted Mr Scheepers saying he wanted to assist the family with funeral arrangements. We facilitated that and the family received R5 000,” said Majola. “The family then asked whether there was to be compensation paid for someone who died in the line of duty,” said Majola. He then contact-

ed SQ Risk Security, the labour department, SAPS and later the Investigating Complaints Directorate (ICD). “SQ Risk Security said Thembani was relatively new in their employ and he did not have a provident fund at the time of his death. The Labour Department could not assist him with benefits from the Workers Compensation Fund until they obtained information on cause of death. “The SAPS has sent the matter to the ICD for investigation and an autopsy because the matter involves a police shooting,” said Majola. According to Police spokesman, Warrant Officer Dumile Gwavu, the Police are still investigating. The two suspects who managed to escape have also not yet been located.

Over 26 teams from 16 universi­ ties will be competing for the spoils over this period. The games will start at 8.30am and end at 8pm. Read more about this on page 7.

Police and Victim Support Centre help children, poor NCEBA DLADLA LAST Friday KwaNobuhle members of the SA Police Service (SAPS) in conjunction with the Victim Support Centre extended a helping hand by donating food parcels, baby bottles, blankets, towels and toiletries to some needy families and at least four local crèches which were in dire need. This generous giving, according to KwaNobuhle police and the Victim Support Centre, was part of their integrated approach to fight a winning battle against crime in the area. “A Combined partnership between the police and the commu-

nity will enhance the values of caring and sharing as well as promoting upright and moral citizens,” said police spokesperson Lt Col. Priscilla Naidu, adding that if children are taught the values of good living at an early age, they will more than likely grow up being responsible and caring adults. Naidu reminded residents that the Victim Support Centre in KwaNobuhle is open to anyone who is a victim of abuse. According to Lt Col. Naidu, there was no need for people to suffer in isolation - from any kind of abuse - be it domestic violence or sexually related. The Victim Support Centre coordinators can be contacted at 0 041 978 8639 or Child line toll free number at 0 0800 055 555.

THUMPING Music was played during the Youth Day Celebrations at Gondwana Cafe, Dolphins Leap in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth on Saturday. Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s youth went to the Wolfson Stadium in KwaZakhele to hear Minister in the Office of the Presidency Collins Chabane speak about the significance of the day and the lessons to be learnt while the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) revealed to the young people the opportunities available to them in this new dispensation with some ending the day with a dose of fun at Gondwana Cafe. The party was called the Dance Floor Politics but there was absolutely nothing political about it; except for local deejays doing what they do best on the turntables - spinning the disks. The untouchables – DJs Mthi, Tshepho and Mills were at their best whilst featuring DJs Illu, Jesse James and Muzi who were unstoppable. “It was a day well spent. The ladies loved it and everybody had fun,” said Ryt Clik Communication’s Mthiwekhaya Gqamane otherwise known as DJ Mthi.

Luvuyo eKama ligumbi labo elitsha kraca INTATHELI YE-INDABA IBI yimiguyo nemigcobo ngethuba inkampani iMotor Finance Corporation (MFC) eyinxalenye yakwaNedbank inikezela ngokusesikweni igumbi lokufundela elinokweza izinto eziliqela kubafundi neetitshala zesikolo samabanga aphantsi iKama eNew Brighton. Inkampani iMFC iwaxhasa ngamandla amaphulo ezemfundo eMzantsi Afrika njengendlela yenkqubo yayo yokutyala kuphuhliso loluntu. Oku kwaqala ngomnyaka ka2007 nalapho abasebenzi bachitha ixesha labo kwiiprojekthi ezifana nokupeyintwa kwamagumbi okufundela kananjalo nokuqhutywa kokulinywa kweezitiya zemifuno kwizikolo ezahlukeneyo. Ukususela ngoka-2009 basebenzisene ngokubambisana nabasebenzi baseNeethling neyindawo yoqeqesho zitishala engu-phase 3 neqhuba iinkqubo zophuhliso oluqhubekayo.

Eli gumbi litsha lisinika ithemba lokuba siqhubeke sisenza umahluko kubomi babafundi bethu.” OkaKlee uthe iinjongo eziphambili ze-MFC Social Responsibility kukuba yenze inguqu ebonakalayo kwizikolo abazibandakanya nazo.

Letter to the Editor

Government belittles plight of youth IT has been been 36 years now since the 1976 Massacre. If my memory serves me well the sole purpose of the protest was to fight Bantu Education and create better education for all. Yet 36 years later, our state of education leaves much to be desired. We have teaching taking place under trees, no learning/teaching material, inadequate teachers, unemployable/unemployed graduates! When are we going to take a bold step against this anomaly? Like our fallen heroes of 1976 did! I am tempted to say the plight of 1976 has been belittled by the behaviour of the youth of today. Drugs, sex and dropping out seem to be the order of the day, irrespective of whether they have access to education or not. And I think that I can tolerate! But for Government to belittle such a national plight, is totally unacceptable! I am still finding it very hard to comprehend that the office of the Presidency could not honour and address the National Youth

Day Celebrations held at Wolfson Stadium. What message are the President and his Deputy sending to the youth of today, to the families of the fallen heroes and to the history of our struggle in general? We are always accused of being apathetic, apolitical and uninterested in building the nation and in youth programmes/agendas. But now I think the Government should look at themselves first. Is our government, led by the President, setting an exemplary tone and pace of accelerated youth development? Nevertheless I am proud of the youth of 1976 for their selflessness has made it possible for me to be who I am now, a young Medical Doctor. I also want to thank their families for forgiving this country for taking their daughters and sons at a young age! Indeed Aluta Continua

SA’s biggest basketball tournament at NMMU EXPRESS INDABA REPORTER


OVER 26 teams from 16 universities will converge on the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University when it hosts the biggest basketball tournament in the country from July 1 to 7 at the South and North campuses in Summer-

The tournament is one of the highlights in the University Sport Calendar and it has proven over the years that it can rise to the occasion. The last tournament held in Port Elizabeth was held in 2005. The respective visiting teams will be bolstered by a number of national

players within their ranks, such as local athlete Reece Prinsloo who is studying at Vaal University of Technology. NMMU will have his own dose of players such as Thando Nondlwana who is the most experienced player on the field, Siwa Siphahlanga and Lwazi Mapitiza. Bernard Petersen, Manager: Mar-

tial Arts, Basketball and Volleyball, said that this tournament would also not shy away from profiling women sport, because the ladies would also fight it out in their own way. “NMMU will be boosted by the return of Mampho Tsotsetsi, the current national netball player who is also a very good basketball player. NMMU will certainly miss the serv-

ices of Sanela Vimbela who is part of the USSA student team that will be involved in a world student netball tournament over the same period. It will be up to Sandra Panesu, the captain and chairperson of NMMU Basketball club, to prove her worth,” Petersen said. The games will start at 8.30am and end at 8pm. Entry is free.

Walmer Football Tourney’s title up for grabs ­ registration open NCEBA DLADLA REGISTRATIONS are still open for the development football tournament that takes place in Walmer Township every year, said organiser Rabi Gongqa. Set to take place at Walmer High School sports grounds from 9-12 August the tournament, which is a breeding ground for football development in Walmer/Gqebera, is open for registration,” said Gongqa. The invitation is open to all the teams even outside of Gqebera. The tournament was started by sponsors Engen, which were later joined by Absa Bank in 2002, to take the youth off the streets, to reduce crime, drug and alcohol abuse,” said Gongqa. “Thanks to the Nelson Mandela Bay businessmen and women, the strategic objectives of the tournament are still being met
