U’hage woman falls victim to identity theft

A

UITENHAGE woman, Ntomboxolo Tiyo, is worried that someone is using her lost identity document (ID) to commit fraud. Tiyo (43), of Gunguluza Area 10, in KwaNobuhle is an unemployed mother of two who receives a disability grant and child support grants for her school-going children. She was astounded to see that R381 was deducted on 1 January this year. Tiyo lost her ID on 14 November last year. She applied for a new ID on 4 January. Tiyo enquired from the Social African Social Security Agency (SASSA) and discovered that someone opened an account at Joshua Doore in KwaNobuhle using her ID. “I was supposed to get R1 760 and was instead paid R1 379,” she told PE Express Indaba. Joshua Doore officials showed Tiyo the signed contract alleging she bought a bread bin, kettle, steam iron and folding chair among other houshold appliances. The addressed supplied was, however, not Tiyo’s, as it was in Motherwell. Police later discovered that the address was that of a vandalised and unused house. “I don’t know how this could have happened. When someone opens an account we look at the ID and their address and then refer them to our credit department which verifies if the person’s employers confirm certain information we ask about the person,” said Joshua Doore’s Parra Mongo.

Mongo added that in the case of social grant recipients, like Tiyo, they usually phoned SASSA and after speaking to the person who opened the account, SASSA gave consent that the account can be opened. A disgruntled Tiyo reported the matter to police and after consultation with the furniture shop the debit order was cancelled. There was however, no case opened according to police spokesperson Lt Col Priscilla Naidu. “We won’t be able to investigate the matter because in our records there is no case of theft or fraud opened,” said Naidu. The police spokesperson found it rather strange that SASSA could give out information about anyone on the phone resulting in money to be deducted in the bank. “The woman must open a case and in our view Joshua Doore should too, otherwise how are they going to account for the stock that was given out,” said Lt Col Naidu.

Community stands up for boy after father dies NCEBA DLADLA KAMVELIHLE residents are up in arms against a woman they claim has kicked out the 17-year old son of her late boyfriend from his home. The residents claim they no longer want to see Noleti Limba-Diniso (42) at the house in Canzi Street. The house belonged to the late Andile Gumenge (45) and, according to residents, Noleti was his Masihlalisane (live-in-lover). Speaking to PE Express Indaba amid singing and toy-toying last Wednesday the residents said: “Away with Noleti. We don’t want her in our community. She is dangerous!” Residents also accuse Noleti of bringing her current boyfriends to the late man’s house. They accuse her of not giving the child his own house-key and that the boy’s Grade 9 school work has been adversely affected. “The life of this young boy became hell since his father died in May last year. He does not get food, is locked out of the house and the worst was when she accused him of attempted rape and had him arrested,” a family friend Nosipho Maswana said. She accused him of calling her names, while she is the one that is calling the boy names, added Zukiswa Jim, who is the late Andile’s cousin. Noleti, on the other hand, who admitted to have been married to Diniso once, claims to have been

Andile’s common-law wife. “And the Gumenges know about that,” she said. Noleti admitted to having a “decent boyfriend” but denied that they sleep together at Gumenge’s house which according to her is now hers anyway. Noleti instead, accuses her stepson of being disrespectful and the residents of entering in a matter that does not affect them. “We have been watching Noleti destroying the life of the young boy and we now say, enough is enough,” said Bering Sefali, a community church pastor. “We called her, as a mother, asking that they try to find ways to live together in peace and harmony but she refused. Instead, she had the boy arrested and we as the community went out of our way to pay R300 for his bail,” said Sefali. Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Thembi Gwe confirmed that the boy was arrested for contravening a Protection Order. According to Gwe, his bail was paid and he is expected in court again on 1 March. “I am still waiting for Andile’s monies to be paid out. I had planned to assist his son whom I love. But now that they have exposed me, there won’t be peace. I won’t give him a cent. I won’t return to the house for my safety, but I’ll sell it. It is my house anyway, the Gumenges accepted me as their daughter-in-law,” said Noleti. Andile’s mother, Nothobile Gumenge (73), said from her home in

Salute to Rodriguez at Old Grey IN the wake of a massive resurgence of interest in the folk icon Rodriguez created by the Oscarnominated documentary “Searching for Sugarman”, Centrestage presents its own twonight only salute to Rodriguez at Old Grey this weekend on 8th and 9th February. “Finding Sugarman” is headed up by Wayne Kallis, along with a new-look line-up which introduces drummer Devon Van Rooyen and bassist Andrew Warneke to the Centrestage fold and reacquaints fans with percussionist John Dickin in the 6-man ensemble. Sherid Van Rooyen plays guitar and Khanya Matomela plays keyboards in the band. Despite being completely unknown in his home country, the music of Mexican-American Rodriguez was extremely popular in South Africa in the 70’s and 80’s as

its poetic, anti-establishment lyrics, which touched a chord with the troubled youth, came to serve as anti-Apartheid anthems. In 1969, many believed that his initial album Cold Fact would secure his reputation as one of the greatest recording artists of his generation. Instead the album bombed and the Rodriguez seemingly disappeared into obscurity, even being subject to rumours that he had committed suicide by setting himself on fire onstage and other imaginative tales. The album took on a life of its own when a bootleg recording found its way into our own South Africa. Banned by the Apartheid government, the album became a nationwide phenomenon over the next two decades, and the soundtrack to a resistance movement of liberal African youth. The Searching for Sugarman doc-

In doing so, they uncovered the humble construction worker who had no idea he was a superstar! Once contact was re-established for the first time, subsequent tours to South Africa in 1998 and 2003 were arranged and Centrestage had the rare privilege of staging the sold-out concert in Port Elizabeth themselves.

Kamvelihle learners believe education is key to liberation NCEBA DLADLA THREE Port Elizabeth girls are determined to overcome the hardships they face in life by studying hard for a better future. The trio, Abongile Layiti, Siphosethu Ngcukana and Ntomboxolo Bokoyi of Kamvelihle Township near Motherwell, believe education is the key to success. They are pupils at James Jolobe High School in Motherwell. “I’d like to become a doctor to help sick people, especially those suffering from HIV/Aids,” said Abongile who is in Grade 11. According to Abongile, HIV/Aids is the biggest killer of humanity and requires a more concerted effort in the fight against it. Siphosethu who is in Grade 9 would like to become a journalist. “I’d like to know more about our politicians like president Jacob Zuma and what they are up to. I like to write and take photos and I think South African politics are interest-

As far as Ntomboxolo is concerned, poverty that is ravaging humanity is the biggest cause for concern. This Grade 9 learner wants to do something about it. “I’d like to become a Social Worker to deal with people’s needs like social grants and school uniforms for children. I see so much poverty around,” said Ntomboxolo. The trio are also involved in sport. They all partake in the school’s netball team while Ntomboxolo is also a member of the school choir.

the children to continue to do so. “Sports is about discipline so let us encourage pupils to take part in sports,” said Tom. The MEC commended parents who were there to support their children. “I studied at this school. It used to be involved in sports, especially athletics, during the years when Mr Mnyanda was the principal here. We’d like to bring back those memories,” said Department of Education District Director Dr Nyathi Ntsiko. Sipho Hashe Combined School principal, Sisa Dlula, thanked the MEC and promised to continue encouraging sports activism in the school as part of its rich history.

TWELVE Township schools in Nelson Mandela Bay received sports kit from the MEC for Sports, Recreation, Arts and Culture, Xoliswa Tom, at Sipho Hashe Combined School in KwaZakhele, Port Elizabeth last week Tuesday. The aim of this service delivery initiative from Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, according to MEC Tom, was to revive sports activism in the youth of South Africa as part of the Back to School Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) Legacy Program. The tour to the township which involved Afcon Diski Dancers and the Mascot Takuma was also intended to garner the support of fans to buy tickets for the Afcon tournament which was being played on our shores, said MEC Tom. The MEC delivered 12 full boxes of soccer, rugby and netball kits to a very excited Sipho Hashe Combined School as well as Mdengeentonga, Khulile, Elufefeni, Coega, Jarvis Gqamlana, Ebhongweni, Inkqubela, Dumani, David Vuku, Seyisi and Charles Duna Primary Schools. “This is a fulfilment of the promise Minister (Fikile) Mbalula made to revive sports in schools,” said Tom, Sport Recreation Arts and Culture MEC Xoliswa urging teachers to go Tom (third from left) and SRAC District Director out of their way to fulfil Ntombekhaya Makaza (second) give sports kit to their “calling” in teach- Coega Primary School teachers Eddie Danster(left) Photo: NCEBA DLADLA ing and empowering and Nombulelo Nciya.

Experience of a lifetime for Mandela Bay player escorts NCEBA DLADLA

Mandela Bay Player Escorts were on duty in an Afcon Quarter match between Ghana and Cape Verde.Photo: SUPPLIED

ABOUT 22 Nelson Mandela Bay boys and girls between the ages of eight and 12 had the once-in-a lifetime opportunity of participating in the Orange Africa Cup of Nations Tournament as player escorts in matches played at Mandela Bay stadium. They had the honour of escorting the likes of Asemoah Gyan (Ghana), Seydow Keita (Mali) and Dieumerci Mbokani of the Democratic Republic of Congo, among others. “The children coming in the Escort Player Programme for the Orange Africa Cup of nations were part of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) regulations and were drawn from the bank’s employ-

ee network - from South Africa as well as other parts of the continent such as Ghana, Lesotho, Malawi and Mozambique,” said Maanda Nematandani, M-Sport Marketing Communications Officer, adding that the programme was sponsored by Standard Bank. As part of the Standard Bank’s long-standing support of United Against Malaria (UAM) - a social awareness project that is also officially supported and endorsed by CAF - each player escort shirt carried the UAM branding on a sleeve. According to Nematandani, UAM is a partnership of football teams and heroes, celebrities, health and advocacy organisations, governments, corporations and people who have united to win the fight against malaria.

NMB hosts third place Afcon game on Saturday NCEBA DLADLA THERE is still good Orange Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) football awaiting Eastern Cape football lovers, according to Nelson Mandela Bay South African Football Association (Safa) president Mzimkhulu Fina.

Fina was referring to the game to be played at Nelson Mandela Bay stadium on Saturday 9th February for the third place between the losers of the 2013 Afcon Semifinals which is being played today. Burkina Faso will play against Ghana in the first semi-final while Mali will entertain Nigeria at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban today. The winners will compete in

the final for the coveted Afcon Cup. Burkina Faso pipped Togo 1-0 at Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit while Nigeria surprised Ivory Coast with a 2-1 defeat. Mali beat Bafana Bafana 3-1 on penalties after the 1-1 draw in regulation time and the 30-minute a side extra time in Durban. Both games were played at the weekend. “The biggest disappointment

was the defeat of Bafana Bafana to Mali in a dicey penalty shoot-out,” said Fina. Despite Bafana’s loss, Fina was optimistic that football lovers from the Bay and province will still come in numbers to support whoever comes to play here - like they did during the round-robin matches, he said. “Bafana Bafana might have lost.

But, we are happy with what the coach (Gordon Igesund) is trying to do with the boys. They are currently playing good football and it can only become better. This will motivate fans to watch and support football more,” said Fina adding that he also hoped attempts will be made to have Bafana Bafana come to play at Nelson Mandela Bay stadium soon.

Under 13 football national tournament opens for registration PE EXPRESS INDABA REPORTER THE Nestlé MILO Champions Tournament makes its return for yet another exciting year, as nationwide registrations for 2013 officially opened from January 14 until February 28. Nestlé South Africa, in association with the South African Schools Football Association (SASFA), will embark on a national journey to find South Africa’s youngest football champions in the sixth consecutive year of this under-13 tournament. During the past few years that Nestlé and SASFA have enjoyed this partnership, the tournament has recognised five national school champions from Limpopo, Gauteng and the Eastern Cape. In addition, the tournament has awarded close to R1,5 million in prize money to provincial and national champions of the tournament between 2008 and 2012. One of the biggest accomplishments of the tournament is that since 2008, it has reached approximately 280 000 children across the country. Another tournament milestone is that in 2010, South Africa became the first country to host the first edition of the MILO African Champions Tournament – which now occurs every two years. In fact, SA’s 2011 champions, Nkunzimbini Primary School, had an opportunity, through this tournament, to travel to Ghana for a once-in-a-lifetime five-day trip, where they participated in the MILO African Champions Tournament against other MILO champions from Nigeria, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Ghana. “One of the most important things about this tournament is that it gives Nestlé a platform to educate the youth on the significance of eating healthily and of living a

healthy lifestyle. Nestlé and SASFA are proud of the increased access to sport and opportunities that this tournament has provided over the years. We look forward to an exciting 2013 tournament,” stated Kelly Wainwright, Nestlé South Africa’s Marketing Manager for Dairy. The Provincial Championships for 2013 are set to take place from May, with specific dates to be announced at a later stage. This year’s prizes include R10 000 for each of the nine would-be Provincial Champions and an ultimate prize of R150 000 for the potential National Champions. Last year’s winners, Sada Senior Primary School, made history by becoming the third school from the Eastern Cape to win the tournament and walk away with R150 000. The school utilised their winnings to buy sporting equipment for their athletics team and to build a soccer field at the school. “The money that our young men won in the MILO Champions Tournament has been a great help and we are very proud of how well our boys played,” stated Principal Luthando Magolodela of Sada Senior Primary School. “The way in which last year’s winners utilised the prize money certainly proves just how important and necessary a programme such as this is. “It is very rewarding to know that every time these children get on the field to compete against one another, they have a worthy goal in mind – to improve sporting facilities in their schools. “We are very proud of all the participants and we say to all the communities, teachers and parents – continue to support your children in this amazing venture, their future is bright,” said SASFA President, Mandla “Shoes” Mazibuko.

Is Zwengu taking a risk fighting Botile?

NCEBA DLADLA MAKHOSONKE Zwengu is taking a big gamble in challenging Masixole Botile’s Eastern Cape Middleweight title, said the latter’s handler Caiphus Ntate. Highly rated South African Middleweight contender, Zwengu, and EC champion, Botile, will square off over 10-rounds in the main bout of Andile Siqwepu’s Andile Boxing Promotions bill at Babs Madlakane Community Hall on Saturday 9 March. Boxing South Africa (BSA) has approved Zwengu of KwaNobuhle in Uitenhage as the mandatory challenger of the title held by Christopher Buthelezi of KwaZulu Natal owing to the boxer previously in the spot, Peter Mashamaite’s, long inactivity. “My boy has been promised a fight for the SA title in December, but that fight fell through on the eleventh hour. So we are taking a warm-up fight against Botile - just to keep busy before we get a crack at the

national crown,” said Zwengu’s handler Ntemi Frans with confidence. According to Frans, fighting Botile, of Walmer in Port Elizabeth, for the provincial title was their best bet. He said, “We want to keep busy, sharpening our skills and building our confidence by beating Botile, considering that we beat him fair and square in our first fight in Port Alfred in February 2010.” “They are making a huge mistake. This is a big gamble that they will live to regret. Botile has gained a lot of experience since his previous encounter with Zwengu. We’ll take the fight as an elimination to the national title. Amaxesha ngamanye (these are new times) and it’s our time to shine,” said Ntate. Both boxers fought against former EC champion Leon Mriba of PE in their last fight. Zwengu knocked Mriba out in three rounds more than a year ago while Botile stopped him in six rounds on 17 December last year for the EC title.

Bontle Tigers set to continue where they left off SELBY MADIKANE WALMER community club Bontle Tigers Ladies Rugby Football Club made a vow to their supporters that they would continue where they left off last season in the Eastern Province Rugby Union B-Section League. Tigers President Nomatemba Gum said they would like to collect silverware for their supporters who rallied behind them through thick and thin last season. “We are aiming high this season. We do not want to let down our supporters. Last season things were going well in our camp and we want to assure our community that we are going to be a lot better than last year. The spirit is very high in the team and everybody works extremely hard,” said Gum. Tigers head coach Mongezi Cwilana shared the same sentiments as his president. “I am happy to have a team that is so dedicated and disciplined. I want to warn our team about complacency. They should forget about the previous games but stay focused in order to achieve more,” said Gum. Tigers catapulted into fame when they won the Youth Day Tournament, Mayoral Cup and Teams Friendly Tournament Cup as well as a Youth Day Tournament Award Shield in 2012 Season.
