Meet Sivenathi, our frontpage Christmas Baby NCEBA DLADLA

BUBBLY little Sivenathi Mjekula, the 2011 PE Express Indaba Front-page Christmas baby brings joy to the family, every minute. Born to Nombasa (35) and Masakhe Mjekula (42) of Elalin’ eMhlophe (White Location) in New Brighton, Sivenathi, affectionately known as Sive, is the couple’s second child. They asked God for her. “Her birth was a blessing from God,” said a glowing Nombasa who has accepted coming second fiddle to Sive’s dad, Masakhe for the toddler’s attention. “Sive is my second child, born of a ceasarian section at Mercantile hospital on 14 January. She is such a lovely, playful and joyful child who always likes attention; especially from her dad,” said Nombasa with a smile. She added: “Of course, Sive looks more like her dad and un-
guntombikayise (she likes the company of her father more).” “Sive wakes up when I wake up in the morning to prepare to go to work. She will only go back to
sleep after I kiss her good-bye and say, daddy is going to work now my dear,” said Masakhe proudly. Sivenathi recognised her father’s voice from a very early age.
After giving birth to a boy Buhle (8) the couple prayed to God for a baby girl and when that prayer was answered they named her Sivenathi, aptly meaning “Hear us too Oh Lord”. She was a planned child whose future was thoroughly prepared for by the couple. “I love my little sister. I play with her. But she likes to eat,” Buhle told PE Express Indaba. Nombasa thanks her colleague for advising her to enter Sivenathi in the PE Express Indaba competition. She said there was excitement and joy at her home, at her workplace and the United Presbyterian Church (eRhabe) when she received news that Sive had won the baby competition. “This is a sign that Sive is going to be Miss Universe one day,” said Masakhe, whilst Nombasa thanked God and PE Express Indaba for giving her little one this opportunity.

Harsh sentences dished for EC women and children abusers NCEBA DLADLA PROVINCIAL Police Commissioner, Lieutenant General Celiwe Binta, has commended the collaborative efforts by by members of the SAPS, other Government Departments and Stakeholders together with members of the communities in the fight against crime. The Provincial police boss said this co-operation was evident dur-
ing the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children. As the year approaches its end, she said, “We look back with thanks to both our members and the community for the successes we achieved in the fight against crime.” Binta said seven suspects had been convicted and given harsh sentences in different courts around the province during the campaign against women and children abuse. “The sentences ranged from five
to 28 years’ imprisonment,” said Lt. General Binta. Binta said the eradication of violence targeted against women and children remains the SAPS key priority. “In every rape case reported to us,” she said, “we do our best to make sure that we arrest the suspect and oppose bail, with the focus being placed on mobilising society to make life difficult for criminals in our midst. This should include an overhaul of gender and family relations and intolerance of abuse within communities.”
Lt Gen. Binta said the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit which was relaunched in Motherwell, in October, deals with offences against women and children. She further encouraged members of the SAPS to ensure that these crimes are policed accordingly. “I would like to end by wishing one, a peaceful and joyous festive season, as we continue to squeeze crime to zero in the Province. UThixo anisikelele (May God bless you!),” said Lt Gen. Binta.

Players taught life skills at Safa U17 national games NCEBA DLADLA
Tuition towards UNISA LLB BCom BCompt & BBA degrees offered from 2012
THE SA Football Association (Safa) Under-17 National Championships held at the Gelvandale and Adcock Stadiums in Port Elizabeth came to a halt on Tuesday morning to give Lovelife an opportunity to talk to the youth in sport about life-skills, goalsetting and the right behaviour. “Safa has a partnership with Lovelife. The agreement is that whenever we have our regional or national games, Lovelife will come and address the youth on issues that really affect them. So last Tuesday morning
Lovelife had a two-hour session with the players,” said Safa Competitions Officer, Thuli Mokwena, the tournament’s General Coordinator. About 200 players coming from all nine provinces of the country, including the team from SA Schools Football Association (Sasfa) attended. “They are living in a time of challenges due to HIV/Aids and substance abuse. They must know how to handle finance and most importantly how to take care of themselves,” Mokwena told PE Express Indaba. “The programmes promote healthy positive lifestyles including the Bodywise Programme which talks about
the changes of the body and how to interpret and react on those body changes,” said Khanyisa Jonono, a Lovelife Ground Breaker. Siphosethu Mhlabeni said they taught the players the importance of setting realistic and achievable goals and working to attain them. This was well received by players. “I liked the talk. They told us to do the ABC-rule and to take care of ourselves,” said KZN player Sifiso Mkize (15). His team-mate, Onke Dok,o loved the time they had to play games but remembered the message: “Everything you do has its consequences, so you must always be careful,” he said.

Goodiebags for selfless after feeding thousands daily FIVE co-operatives, who have helped feed about 7 000 people daily since the municipality started its feeding programme this year, received their fair share of groceries recently as a token of the municipality’s appreciation for their commitment. The five co-operatives from five wards in the city have been cooking and serving food to their fellow neighbours since August this year, when the R10 million War on Hunger campaign was introduced. Speaking at the closing ceremony last week Monday, Executive Mayor, Zanoxolo Wayile, thanked the 123 volunteers (114 woman and nine men) who worked tirelessly each day in often extremely challenging conditions, to prepare and serve food to the most vulnerable members of their community. “The fact that such a high number of people are saved daily from sleeping with an empty and excruciatingly painful stomach is a great achievement for us as the municipality and
those that have assisted us in the process,” said Wayile. “Working together, we need to build a caring society that touches lives of each and every citizen of the city, more especially women and children. I call on the private sector to partner with us in eradicating hunger and empowering our people. “Looking back at the road we have travelled since we launched the War on Hunger Programme, we have made strides, but there is still a lot to be done in making people, who are part of the programme, self-sufficient,” said Wayile. From left is Nobakunini Tyala receiving a foodparcel from Finro Cash and Carry’s Gawie Hugo; NMBM Executive Mayor, Zanoxolo Wayile, hands over food to Ntomboxolo Nkunkuma from Sakhubun tu Cooperative (in the middle); and NMBM Economic Development, Tourism and Agriculture Portfolio Chairman, Chippa Ngcolomba, hands over food to Neziwe Khalipha (far right).

Ngomso Foundation head thinking about the future NCEBA DLADLA
Ngomso Foundation head Lulama Ngqungwana of Zwide Township is a loving and caring mother.
Photo: Nceba Dladla
VERY few people in the world think about the others’ needs and especially the less fortunate, more than they think about themselves. Such a rare quality personis Lulama Ngqungwana. PE Express Indaba visited this woman from Yumata Street, Zwide township in Port Elizabeth, last week and found her to be a humble and selfless soul. Asked what she would like for Christmas, Lulama did not mince her words. “I’d like to see peace in the world,” she said. Then she quickly added, “I wish the rampant child molestation, abuse of all kinds (physical, sexual, emotional and otherwise) should come to an end; and that children, our future leaders, should be free to live the most fulfilling lives,” said this mother of two who admitted to being a survivor-victim of abuse and early childhood pregnancy. She was only 17 years old when she was pregnant with her first-born child Musa (22), who now studies music in the United States. Her other child, Nomatshawe (15), will be in grade 10 at Loyiso High School in Zwide next
year. Being the survivor of emotional and physical abuse, she felt for the abandoned children who are left to suffer because people do not care. This, she said, is the reason why she started Ngomso Foundation with her meagre wages as a domestic worker in 2007. “I wanted to give orphaned and vulnerable children a home. I wanted to say to them, don’t despair, somebody cares out there,” she said proudly. What she wants for Christmas is for affording families to take at least one child to “clothe and feed during this Christmas,” said Lulama who looks after 60 children aged between five and 18 years - all at school. “I look after them when they come from school, make them food to eat and help them with their home work,” she said, adding that she also pays their schools a visit to talk to their teachers and check on their academic progress. She thanks her assistant Nomazulu Klaas and Eastern Cape NGO Coalisition and Algoa Charitable Trust as organisations that have helped her financially, otherwise, she said, “I am doing this on my own, for the love of humanity and especially the children, our future leaders.”
From struggling pupils to passionate teachers PE EXPRESS REPORTER THEY came from schools without science labs, where experiments were memorised from text-books rather than demonstrated, schools without electricity, where exams were written in the dark, and even schools without desks, where pupils wrote standing up. Next year, they are returning to their old schools – now as qualified teachers – only to make a difference. In 2008, a group of promising Gr 12 pupils from under-privileged schools across Nelson Mandela Bay, were selected to attend a maths and science incubator school, run by the Govan
Mbeki Mathematics Development Unit at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU). At the school, they were exposed to a unique technology-based teaching and learning model, shared via a DVD series, which uses cutting-edge electronic media to teach the Gr 11 and Gr 12 maths and science syllabus. Not only did it help them improve their marks, but it also inspired them to help other pupils like themselves. “My main objective is to make a difference in other people’s lives,” said Bongani Msizi, 23, who has just completed a three-year teaching qualification at NMMU and is about to embark on a year’s practical teach-
ing at his alma mater, Lungisa High School, in KwaDwesi. “That is why I have chosen to become a maths and science teacher. Most high school pupils are struggling with these subjects.” Similarly, Xolani Tyiwa, 22, is returning to his old school, Solomon Mahlangu High, in Uitenhage. “The school helped me to keep on at higher grade level in both maths and science. I succeeded at the end of my matric year, thanks to it [the incubator school].” Lelethu Dwane, 23, will be completing his prac. teaching year at Khumbulani High School in North End, where he was a pupil. “Seeing the experiments (during the incuba-
tor school) helped us understand and remember them. As a result of their achievements in the incubator school, the three – along with two other classmates, Luzuko Jama and Yusra Rajie – all received Department of Education Funza Lushaka bursaries to study teaching. Tyiwa initially wanted to work straight after school, but the bursary changed his mind – and got him thinking about how he could make a difference. “So many pupils are struggling, mainly because there is a shortage of teachers. I decided I wanted to change a black situation.” For Dwane, the bursary was a
chance to follow in the footsteps of an inspiring maths and science teacher, who “explained everything in detail”. He has since come to realise that teaching is his calling. GMMDU head Prof Werner Olivier said the new teachers would be assisting in future incubator schools, which are run at various centres in the Eastern Cape and elsewhere in the country. “We also plan to utilise their involvement as part of our ongoing research into the technological teaching model that assisted them. For us, it is wonderful to see the growing number of learners who are graduating each year in the wake of our incubator school interventions in the past.”

Season’s greetings from the PE Express editorial team
T’S that time of the year again when the PE Express editorial team greet their readers before they go on a well-earned break – the one time of the year that they are allowed to do a bit of subjective reporting. Here is their reflection on 2011 with their wishes for Christmas.
This ride had too many dips to ever buy another ticket for round number two. To name but a few personal episodes – the worst one was the passing of my wise, loving, generous and dearest grandfather, simultaneously eva- cuating office and home and moving into unknown territories. On the wider horizon, there was obviously Black Tuesday, a deep pothole in all journalists’ path, the exposure of yet another corrupt head of police, the rape of another woman, the abuse of another child, the murder of another farmer, the retrenchment of another provider, the expropriation of another farm, the closure of another mine, the awarding of an-
into a formidable team – The PE Express editorial staff. I found myself in a milieu conducive to creativeness, efficiency, compassion and professionalism. What a high! The editorial staff is profound. Reporters who make a great difference in the lives of ordinary people and institutions, who get involved with the public, who mean what they say.

Lastly, I wish all our readers a most Blessed Christmas with family,
This year was by far the most challenging, tiresome and busiest in a vee-e-e-e-ry long time. I think I had more stress in 2011 than during my matric exams and going for my driver’s licence combined! But I just can’t put my finger on what it is that made this year so difficult? Was it all that training we received at work through the year; was it changing from one layout programme to a completely different, more challenging (but after a few months a much nicer) one; was it starting a brand-new website for the PE Express and learning the programme to run it at the back-end or was it because dear colleague Zeldré
Hmmm . . . I think I just realised that 2011 was so hectic, because of ALL OF THE ABOVE! Having said that (and still wanting the year to end), I would not change it for anything, because it has made me richer in so many more ways – knowledge, respect, admiration, new friends and a home. Well, maybe I’d just change one thing: I’d pull a Piet van Zyl on myself, go to New Zealand and tackle that ref. As far as my wish for Christmas goes, I recently received an e-mail and I’m sharing this with you, wishing that you will wish with me for this to come true: I want people who are sick with no cure, to be cured; I want children with no families to be adopted; I want people to never have to worry about food, shelter and heat; and I want peace on earth, goodwill and love for everyone! Merry Christmas everyone.
It feels like only days ago that we were preparing our last edition of 2010 and here we are again – the last edition of 2011. Whether is was the tough economic climate and the uncertainty of world economics or just plainly one of those years when the pendulum has swung, it feels as if most people I chat to feel that it was a year of more downs than ups.

Good year for Mandela Bay boxing NCEBA DLADLA NELSON Mandela Bay had two professional boxing tournaments at the weekend – a South African fly-weight title fight between champion Doctor Ntsele of the Free State and challenger Mkholisi Bhonxa of East London; and an EC Heavyweight title fight between local lad Sipho Cophela and East London’s Masixole Botile. It is local promoters, Mbulelo Mfama of Nyusa Boxing Promotions and Gladys “Noforty” Tsenene of Rainbow Boxing Promotions respectively, that brought the two fights together. “This is a confirmation of what a good year it was for the metro,” said an upbeat Mandela Bay Boxing South Africa (BSA) Regional Director, Mthunzi Mapitiza. “We had a very beautiful year in the Nelson Mandela Bay metro - better than last year’s eight tournaments that we had. This is an improvement from the ‘drought’ we’ve been experiencing over the past three to four years,” Mapitiza told PE Express Indaba. Looking at PE fights, including those that took place in East London and Mthatha, Mapitiza said he was sure the Eastern Cape had outdone all other provinces in the country this year. “What is great about these fights is the good number of prospects we were able to pro-
duce. Former EC Flyweight champion, Xolani Mpushe of Uitenhage, is eyeing the winner in the SA title fight and according to Mapitiza, Ntsele’s mentor, Lehlohonolo Ledwaba, has shown interest in coming to the Bay to defend against Mpushe. A third encounter between Mpushe and Bhonxa (with one win apiece) is, however, also possible. “We have Lusindiso Siyo,
who is a determined and dedicated young man ready to challenge for the provincial title and Asanda Jacobs who is a champion in waiting,” said Mapitiza, adding that Jacobs, a local crowd-puller, has a style and charisma that is rare in today’s boxing. “I am also proud to say I am working on a bill involving a provincial title fight scheduled for Motherwell on January 23 already sanctioned by BSA”, said Mapitiza.

BAY Stars Football Club will go into the Christmas break undefeated in nine games with three draws after their 3-1 win over Cloud Nine FC )of Ginsberg, near King Williams Town) at the Gelvandale Stadium in Port Elizabeth last Wednesday. Playing their usual carpet football, the Nelson Mandela Bay Vodacom League outfit started like a house on fire with Lutho Totwana scoring the first goal in the opening minute of the first half. Farouk Abrahams scored twice - one goal in the first few minutes of the second half and his second after 36 minutes. A consolation goal for the visitors was scored by Mawethu Mbewu in the ninth minute of the second stanza. Bay Stars Managing Director, Tony Lovegrove thanked the loyal fans for their support and said that they must take this victory as an early Christmas present. So far the Stars, who are leading the log standings, have scored 15 goals and conceded three in their nine matches – Leroy van Rensburg has scored five, John Giannakis four, Niven Kopps and Abrahams two each. An elated coach, Graham Harris, congratulated “The boys for team work and a will to win” displayed in all their matches. “We need to build on these exceptional performances and take momentum and confidence into the new year that hold so many possibilities for a young club that showed they are a force to be reckoned with on this level,” said Lovegrove. Going to the five-week break, the Stars’ fitness trainer, Sharon Jessop said players will be be given a few days’ break to enjoy the Festive Season with their families. “Otherwise,” she said without a blink, “it’s going to be work as usual.” “We’ll continue with training not only for the physique but for the technical and tactical side as well, “ said Jessop. Meanwhile, Bay Stars’ trials that started in earnest at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University South Campus Soccer Field on Monday, are continuing until later today. Those players who think they have what it takes, must bring their identity documents. Registration starts at 9 am.
FANS watched goal thrilling games during the Motherwell Football Association (Mofa) Build-It First Division League games at NU9 Stadium recently. Enthusiastic supporters of Shining Stars FC could not understand why their side suffered a major upset of a 6-1 loss to the bottom of the log standing Channel Porto FC. Motherwell United FC were held to a 4-4 draw by Tomorrow Stars FC while the new kids on the block and log leaders Young Ideas FC did not sweat for their three points following Stone Breakers FC’s failure to honour their game. Other results: * Motherwell United Brothers FC 8-1 Young Killers FC * Young Ideas FC 5-1 Tomorrow Stars FC * Mighty Cosmos FC 0-w/o Motherwell United FC * Manchester FC 1-1 Highland Spurs FC.
