utside the Houghton home where Nelson Mandela spent his final days, the first chorus of Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika broke out just moments after President Jacob Zuma ended his address to the nation, in which the passing of Madiba was

announced. “Although we knew this day was going to come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss. His tireless struggle for freedom earned him the respect of the world. His humility, passion and humanity earned him their love,” said President

Zuma. He further announced that flags around the country would be flown at half mast until Madiba’s funeral, adding: “Our beloved Madiba will be accorded a state funeral. I order that all flags be lowered to half mast from 6 December and to remain at half mast until after the funeral as

we gather to pay our last respects.” People took pictures, prayed; left messages of support while others put flowers at the entrance to the late struggle icon’s house. The national anthem was replaced by struggle songs and chants as part of the commemoration and celebration, with the


occasional “Viva Madiba!” thrown in. Police kept an eye on the crowds while making sure no one got near the house gates. “I prayed for him to see his birthday, and he did, but I am now sad that he has left us.” said Johannes Phaswane (68) who was within the crowd at Madiba’s Houghton house.

Supported by:

Blake Dull who addressed the crowd in Zulu said: “I am celebrating the love of my hero. Madiba strived for unity in this country, let’s unite to keep his spirit in peace.” “His close comrades and friends will certainly miss his wisdom and guidance. South Africans of all shades and hues mourn the death of this great freedom fighter and national reconciler. The world today is so much poorer after having lost one of its inspiring sons,” said the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation. Not only South Africans mourn the death of the 95 year old, Dr Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela, but also the world over mourned his death and celebrated his triumphant fight against apartheid in South Africa. Some world leaders expressed their heartfelt sympathy to the tragic loss of the iconic and former state leader. “He achieved more than could be expected of any man,” said the US President Barack Obama while New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, said in a statement: “Nelson Mandela was an inspirational leader, and a remarkable man. … For years he symbolised South Africa’s hope for a future free from apartheid. Mr. Mandela was a force for change, not only in South Africa, but around the world.”

God was so good to us in South Africa by giving us Nelson Mandela to be our president at a crucial moment in our history. He inspired us to walk the path of forgiveness and reconciliation and so South Africa did not go up in flames. Nearly seven decades spent fighting for freedom and equality, Nelson Mandela inspired and challenged the world to stand up for others. As word of Mandela’s death spread, current and former presidents, athletes and entertainers, and people around the world spoke about the life and legacy of the former South African leader.

The United Nation’s top human rights official, Navi Pillay recalled how Mandela’s release from prison triggered a “thirst for revenge” among his supporters but that he emphasized forgiveness over vengeance. “He told us to throw our spears and guns into the sea. He showed us that a better future depended on reconciliation, not revenge.” As South Africans, let us live Mandela’s message of continuing the struggle against social injustice and for human rights. Lala ngoxolo, Tata Madiba!, You will always be in our hearts.

hree fathers received trophies, T-shirts and certificates after their daughters wrote essays, recommending them as the best fathers.The awards cer-

emony happened recently at the Central Johannesburg College; spearheaded by the Agisanang Domestic Abuse Prevention and Training (ADAPT) that introduced “Best Fathers’ Project” competition in 2007 with

WORDS OF INSPIRATION “ALWAYS REMEMBER : The greatest gift you ever own is not found in the shops or under your Christmas tree. It is found in the hearts of your family and your true friends.” Unknown

the theme “Fathers are Parents too”. “We introduced this project as a way of highlighting men as role models in our communities who often go unnoticed, because believingly, not all men are irresponsible. Based on this initiative, we then visited schools, requesting girl learners between the ages of 12-16 to write essays on why they think their fathers are the best,” said ADAPT Chief Executive Director, Irene Khumalo. Khumalo said they received a total of

206 essays from Realogile and Kwa-Bhekilanga High Schools for this year, which she said was a sign of growth in the project as compared to 2007 where they received 12 essays and got102 in 2008 from the five high schools. She said they are the first organization to introduce such a project and is currently hosted within Alexandra only, further citing: “We intend taking it nationally if we could have sufficient funds to do so.” The selection process was

handled by a Criterion for determining good fathers, Ngila Michael Muendane who said: “It was not easy to come with the best essay, but we had the criteria that we applied in selecting the best essays and it was based on expectations that are on values, and if they cover four dimensions of life such as Material or Physical, Mental or Intellectual, Spiritual and Emotional. If he covers three of them, is a truly great father.”

The year 2013 has brought us many challenges at a provincial government as well as at departmental level. We have witnessed sporadic incidents of violent protests marches in some parts of the province which are related to service delivery. Despite our budgetary constraints, the Gauteng Department of Human Settlements managed to deliver housing and housing opportunities to many families in the province. In the Alexandra community we have relocated families from old hostel structures to newly renovated community residential units. We are currently in the process of rolling out similar campaigns in all other hostels in the province. Discussions are currently underway with government officials, hostel residents, and members of the surrounding community on what would be the best model to integrate local residents who have shown an interest in some of the units. This integration is crucial for the formation of sustainable human settlements. It does away with the historic legacy of “us and them� that prevailed between hostel residents and local community members during Apartheid. I sincerely hope that this Christmas will foster new relations amongst families that have relocated to their new homes. Enjoy your hard earned break from work and share great moments with family and friends. For many people all over the world, Christmas is a time upon which we reflect on our lives and celebrate the birth of Christ. Twenty years into our democracy, I hope that my department and officials have done enough over the past 11 months to improve and change the lives of ordinary citizens in our province. The ANC led government has delivered over 800 000 housing opportunities to millions of our people. To those families in Alexandra who have taken occupancy of their new homes, please look after them, cherish them and treat them as a treasure you can bequeath to your children. Security of tenure restores one’s dignity and it is the biggest investment that most people will ever make in their entire lives. A property worth R 50 000 today will be worth an estimated R 500 000 over the next 20 years or more given the rate at which government delivered housing is currently valued in the market. Property ownership is a sure bet to secure your future and that of your children. So here is wishing you a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR ALEX!!!

orn and bred in Alexandra twenty-five years ago, Bongani Luhanga started his Afro-Contemporary Dance in 2007, believing that to be a dancer, can tell more stories without saying anything. He said that many people don’t see the dancing as a career and would like to change the mindset, especially of young people. After passing my matric at Alexandra High, I decided to train for this dance, and without any time wasting, started to attend free training sessions at Moving into Dance at Newtown and Vuyani Dance in Joburg. I saw a gap in dancing because everyone wants to be an artist, and it is so hard to crack it.” He said in 2010, he hosted a concert with world renowned artists including Alicia Keys, Shakira and R. Kelly. “This

has sharpened my dancing skills and has instilled more confidence within me whenever I take to the stage. I see the dance as my career and trained for one year at Moving Into Dance and worked with them for a year before moving to Vuyani where I worked for two years.” He said he is currently working for a newly established company called Dance Unlimited in Joburg as a trainer. “I would like to have my own company in the next five years to help people who want to learn more about the administrative part of dancing and its logistics.” Bongani said he is currently running free classes at Thusong Youth Centre on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and has more than 25 trainees. Bongani encouraged youth to get an education, adding: “Nothing comes on a platter.”

sikokela Zulu Dance group from Ward 108 won a floating trophy and a certificate for its outstanding performance after defeating other cultural groups from the six Wards during the Mini Carnival festival that was held recently at Altrek Stadium in Eastbank. “This event is

initiated by the Department of Arts and Culture and is part of preparation for the big carnival events that we used to host every year. We use such events to celebrate the diversity of all nations. All regions host mini carnivals to choose the best groups that will compete nationally at the big carnivals,” said the event coordinator, Johanna Choma.

Choma said they invited all the wards to be represented, and the groups that participated were the Basotho, Mapantsula, Gamboots, Brass Band, Church choirs and the Zulu group. “The chosen groups for the big carnival will have to showcase other African countries’ traditional attires, dances and songs of which our group will stage the

Burkina Faso traditional attires, dance and songs. The awards will be presented according to municipalities.” MMC for Public Safety, Sello Lemao who handed over the awards to the Isikokela Zulu Dancers said: “The City of Johannesburg hosted the first carnival in 2004 and this has provided an opportunity

in positioning the Carnival into an event with greater cultural significance and a broader community impact. The Carnival programme goes together with the City’s vision to create a livable city with a livable community, embracing social cohesion and citizenry participation.” He said the main purpose of hosting such events is

to highlight the relevance of cultural diversity and showcasing events amongst the communities of Johannesburg. “As from 2013, the City of Joburg has partnered with Gauteng Province and the Local Councils of Gauteng to integrate the 2013 Carnival under the theme “Celebrating Africa’s Legacy,” concluded MMC Lemao.

ospice and Rehabilitation Centre that provide love and care for the chronic and terminally ill patients in Alexandra celebrated the World Aids Day on 1 December 2013 jointly with Region E health workers, Traditional Healers and Faith and the medical Dr Moyagabo Mabitsi from Soweto. The day was celebrated under the theme “In Memory of our Loved Ones”. The centre’s Director Grace Marutlulle said: “The main objective of the day was to remember those who have passed on and also to celebrate with our patients jointly with their families.” She said they have lost ten patients to date, adding; “Today we are lighting candles for them and we called on the public to get rid of the HIV stigmatization and start treating the disease like any other illness.” Marutlulle further said that they also have patients from different provinces because of the stigmatization. In her keynote address, Dr Mabitsi congratulated the Minister of Health, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi for introducing a

3-in-one tablet that is taken once a day than three times a day. “There were no ARVs in the year 2000 and were only available in 2004. As we commemorate our loved ones, we also celebrate our achievement as the government for the provision of HIV/Aids treatment.” She appealed to the families to help their patients to take the medication as prescribed. Mabitsi said they don’t expect new infections as people are now aware of the consequences of ignoring their health responsibilities, and in the same breath encouraged men to go for circumcision that she said is now available throughout the year. Traditional Healer and Faith representative, Meisie Pinaar explained: “As the healers we don’t discourage people to stop taking their medical treatment, and we call on patients to provide us with the names of the healers who tell them to stay away from their treatment. We dispute that as traditional healers because we work jointly with the clinics, referring our clients there for further check-ups and medical treatment transcription.”

Inside C-ga’s White Tropical Party

To get you in the festive season mood, Alex Pioneer looks back at one of Alexandra’s most glittering parties

Silent Night Lyrics


lexandra is at a still stand, young and old queue outside to get a glimpse of their favourite celebrities before making their grand entrance into the venue. Inside, everything is white, except for the red carpet. The decor is overwhelmingly stunning and a majority of the guests honoured the “All white tropical party” theme. Suddenly, there is a hullabaloo of noise from outside sparked by the arrival of Candy Mokwena, made famous by the hit song “Tsa Mandebele”. Speaking to Alex Pioneer, Candy said “I feel honoured to have been invited to come and perform for C-ga on his special day.” “When I got the invite through my manager, at first I thought it was a joke but here I am today, set and ready to perform for C-ga

and all his guests.” Candy expressed her excitement over the fact that she’ll be performing for the people of Alexandra, who, according to her, are her source of support in her musical career. When asked if her signature tune “Tsa Mandebele” will be part of the set list, Candy replied: “I mean, of course. These people will bury me alive if I don’t sing that song.” After hours of going up and down, making sure everything is in order, C-ga finally spared us a few minutes to talk about the party. “I’m quite happy with how things turned up today. As anticipated, this party proved to be a success, surpassing the other two previous parties.” “My team and I worked hard to organize everything. I’m the first to organize a beach party in

Alexandra and I’m quite happy people are enjoying themselves,” he added. Following his 8 month break from the lime light, C-ga is poised to make a comeback on television. “Soon I will be appearing on one of the popular television stations in the country, people better watch out for that,” he shared. Even though he wished to remain mum about the character he will be playing, C-ga nonetheless emphasized that “I don’t do cameo roles anymore. I paid my dues.” Some of the celebrity figures who came through include the likes of Omuhle Gela of Muvhango, DJ Blade, Neo Soulsta of Velvet Suite Lounge and of course C-ga’s girlfriend, Kiki Marli.

Silent night, holy night. All is calm, All is bright Round yon Virgin Mother and Child Holy Infant so Tender and mild, Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace. Silent night, holy night. Shepherds quake at the sight. Glories stream from heaven afar; Heavenly hosts sing Al-le-lu-ja. Christ the Savior is born. Christ the Savior is born. Silent night, holy night. Wondrous star, lend thy light. With the angels let us sing Alleluia to our King. Christ the Savior is here, Jesus the Savior is here. Silent night, Holy night. Son of God, love’s pure light Radiant beams from Thy holy face, With the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus Lord at thy birth; Jesus Lord at thy birth.

Gossip insider! Barely three weeks after the end of their remuneration strike, Generations’ actors are reportedly back on strike, again- and this time actors of the most watched soap opera in the country allege that their boss is under the influence of “white people”. Signature faces of the likes of Menzi Ngubane, Sophie Ndaba, Katlego Danke, Zenade Mfenyane et al, who participated in the previous strike have apparently not received their November remuneration. As from February 2014, SABC 2 flagship soapie, Muvhango, will air five days a week. Currently Muvhango plays from Monday to Thursday at 21:00. Muvhango is the leading programme on SABC 2 in terms of viewership.


hata Mam’ Ruby! Generations’ shebeen queen Ruby Dikobe taught Phenyo a lesson of a life time. They don’t call her a shebeen queen for nothing. You strike Ruby, you get okapi on your throat! Don’t say I didn’t warn you, the old Zodwa is starting to creep out of the closet and Akhona is the target. If she is not careful, Zodwa will send Akhona six feet under for her “soul mate” Nic. Sello was starting to walk on my last nerve and thanks to S’busiso for putting him in his place. But hey, I should not be mistaken for suggesting that S’busiso is starting to get into my right books, no, I would really like to see him rot in jail, that’s where he belongs. Can somebody please get rid of Rhythm City’s Stella? This woman irritates me and everyone around her and we can’t stand one more sight of her. I blame Miles for all this nonsense. If it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t have to deal with this woman. Him and Lucilla were a perfect couple until the deep river was unruffled by conflicts. Until Suffocate starts to see Nicky for the devil she really is, his problems won’t end. Haike, will I ever breathe a sigh of relief when it comes to Isidingo’s scandal-prone Sibeko family? I may not like her rude attitude but I strongly despise the manner in which Jeff handled Ice princess, Katlego. Jeff must pay for what he did to Katlego. I was never fooled by Rajesh and Barker’s friendship, if that’s a friendship, from scratch. It was nothing but a union of convenience, no wonder everything is falling apart. Muvhango’s Thate is on fire! It doesn’t come as a surprise to me that vho-Makhadzi chose Mulalo as the regent. It is no secret vho-Makhadzi also wants to be the chief, so with Mulalo as captain of the ship, Makhadzi is at the better place to use her power to advance her agenda. Let’s hope Mulalo’s new title won’t give Teboho ammunition to go around pulling trigger on her enemies. As for Vele, game over darling; you got beaten at your own game. Khomotjo is the bastard I love to see, and may heavenly God be with Thuli because Khomotjo means business, no one messes with her and gets away with it. Ga se ya “namela N1, a e ta a patela di tollgate gore a tle a talelwe ke mosetsana wa mozulu” hamba Khomotjo!

The awards were officially handed over by Phelile Mncwango, the event coordinator. Other teams that took part were the SAPS and the CoJ. The event was made possible by the City of Johannesburg, Mjikeni, Department of Education and the Department of Sports.
