ALEX FM’S UNCERTAINTY

“All we want now is to focus on securing the place we’ll call our own”

Chairman Ernest Ndlovu talks to the community about the status of Alex FM with the church. RAMATAMO WA MATAMONG

T

he 12 month eviction notice extension that the Roman Catholic Church gave Alex FM is fast running out, and this poses a problem as it is not yet clear where the station is relocating to. Speaking on behalf of the station during Alex FM’s interview last Wednesday, Chairman of the Board, Ernest Ndlovu could only say ‘Negotiations are underway and look positive’,but without pro-

viding clear timelines when will the move be finalised. He pleaded with the board to give the station time as the move involves a number of items such as finances and equipment. These are contained into a relocation plan that the station has submitted to the church for consideration. “The station has lost a lot of money to set up the current place and require even more to go to a new place. If it was easy to move, we were going to do it tomor-

row, unfortunately we are an NGO and this is not possible. If these things are not considered, we risk going off air for a while and this is not good for our licence requirements,” he says. He further said that even though the church never shown them the title deed of the place, they are no longer prepared to contest or dispute their ownership rights of Number 69, 2nd Avenue. “All we want now is to focus on securing a place we’ll call our own,” Ndlovu

added. Last year all the tenants on this property were told that as per court ruling, the area now belongs to the Roman Catholic Church since it was forcefully taken away from the church by the Apartheid government in 1960. Other tenants (Sithandiwe home of the disabled and ABET School) have since moved out leaving behind Alex FM and two backyard families. Ndlovu said Alex FM ended up at this current place from Sanko-

pano where the station used to experience poor reception. Alex Sankopano was too deep and the signal struggled to reach other places. They then entered into a lease agreement with the Adult School as they were under the impression that the property belonged to the school. Listeners who called into the show expressed different views, others appealed to the church and Alex Fm to go back to the drawing

board to come up with a workable plan that won’t divide a community. Others were discontented with this suggestion as they feel Alex FM was given enough time to look for a new place. Meanwhile the Church requested to postpone their interview with the station and Alex Pioneer as they are busy finalising some outstanding matters with the Department of Education.

Dear Reader,

KGADI JOHANNA LAMOLA

I am proud (and excited) to announce the launch of our brand new website: WWW.PIONEERNEWS.CO.ZA

E

very year on 21 March, South Africans celebrate Human Rights Day to remember the sacrifices that were made by the struggle for democracy. In Alexandra, there are mixed feelings on whether to celebrate or commemorate the day due to the current situation people are facing. “Remembering the Sharpeville massacres in which our freedom fighters were mowed down by the apartheid police in a struggle to set the country free and watching the current agonizing situation we are faced with, there is nothing to celebrate,” said Mike Makamo, a resident of Alexandra. “Nothing has changed for the better in the lives of the people. Our elders are robbed, raped and brutally killed, and nothing seemed to be done as these incidences happen more often, yet we speak of the best Constitution,” he added. Sam Mathetsa (who works in local security) agreed

Firstly, this is truly a milestone for Pioneer Community Newspapers! We always aim to do better. Alex Pioneer won’t be the only newspaper to feature in the website, but it will include its sister papers: Pioneer Express, Pioneer North and Pioneer Mirror. I would like to thank you all for your continued support through out the years and I am glad you are here to witness our progress. Resident, Mike Makamo making his point about Human Rights Day Picture: Kgadi Johanna Lamola that rights are there in the Bill of Rights, but they benefit certain individuals. He said that rights are only in paper, but in reality they are none: “We can commemorate, remembering our fallen heroes, because what they fought for is partially attained, but no reason to celebrate.” However, local entrepreneur, Thabo Mopasi encouraged people to have Constitution Booklets in their homes and read it: “No cultural tolerance. We are scared of each other because we haven’t yet found and affirmed that we are

one nation. We are celebrating our democracy, constitution and transition period, but we must first commemorate.” “I don’t believe people know of their rights. They are so ignorant, thinking that the fight is over. The current situation is no more about political fight, but for home, security and unem-

ployment just to mention a few,” said Lindie Saunderson of Edward Nathan Sonnenbergs, Alexandra. She said they will have a lot of training on constitution, and they will be launching the Constitutional Law Programme in April that will

help people to know what the constitution of the country entails. “We have a wonderful constitution in the world, but since 1994, people seem not to be interested in the constitution anymore,” concluded Saunderson.

Township Farming Rapolai Katlego

iving standards in South Africa are getting very expensive each an everyday. New legislations will impact the society in ways that were not anticipated and the general public will look for ways to minimise the cost of living and that will start with the way food is sourced and how transportation is utilised. A brief economic look at Gauteng... Gauteng is the most populous and economically significant province in South Africa that roughly contributes over 30% to the national gross income according to (State of the Province Address: Premier of Gauteng Nomvula Mokonyane: www. info.gov.za) Given the short introduction, what is the way forward for emerging supplies within the food and agriculture industry? Taking into account that Alexandra is deprived of space for cultivation, you might assume that farming is purely limited to the physical plantation of fruits and vegetables and waiting impatiently for a few

weeks or so before you can see the fruits of your labour. But there is an alternative approach into the agricultural industry for a wise Alexandrians who wants to make a mark and possibly become a recognisable participant within the circle of major competitors. Gauteng is geographically at an advantage, situated right in the middle of provinces that are naturally rich with fertile soil. Big companies have been using this sourcing strategy and have created amongst themselves a powerful network of suppliers. However, the rising prices of petrol, the possible impact of the introduction of e-tolling could allegedly be negative on the consumer i.e. high pricings of daily necessities.Solution... Collaboration is the way forward, it is probably the cheapest and effective way to source and distribute natural goods – in this case the distribution of farm products through the formation of a local consortium. There are two concepts at work here, collaboration and consortiums. First let us discuss what a consortium is,

how it works and how it can be applied in a society such as Alexandra. A consortium is an association or alliance or a union (www.dictionary.com). Collaboration simply means working together towards a common goal and coordinating activities between stakeholders in order to minimise administration and process redundancies – my opinion. What this implies is that, a group of small retailers in Alexandra can form an alliance with logistics providers to source products in bulks across the nearest process and only share the transportation costs. This will minimise the cost of getting fresh vegetables and distribute them at competitive prices to consumers. Remember, big businesses are “too big” to change their processes, the costs involved are high and they’ll recover those costs by introducing high prices – however a community based consortium with a common goal for growth can easily bypass the redundancies, owning a “spaza” and planning ahead of time can help your business grow

“Running Into Debt Isn’t So Bad. It’s Running Into Your Creditors That Hurts” Sumeshan Pather, ENS “Debt is colour blind. Whether you are Black, White, Indian or Coloured, when you look at your peers and how they live, you want to live just like them.” Debt is a concept not unknown to South Africa and is one that has literally engulfed South Africans by storm. Consumers are using debt to finance living expenses and, for those who are unable to be granted access to secured loans, turn to the micro-lenders with their relaxed credit checks and requirements. The consumer, at the point of application, disregards the exorbitant figure labelled “interest rate”. Once the consumers’ phone alerts them that the money has been deposited into their bank account, all cares are thrown to the wind. Life at that point could not be better. The turn of the tide occurs however, when the first instalment is due and all the fine print from the loan contract becomes as clear as crystal. The consumer never thought that the repayments would be this much and suddenly the once disregarded interest rate becomes the centre of attention. Unsecured loan interest rates may exceed that of 32% and are generally subjected to monthly compound interest, resulting in the debtor having to pay interest almost in the amount of the original capital loan amount, if not double this amount. A general occurrence during this repayment period however, is that instalments are late or missed, resulting in interest on interest being charged. The debtor at this point sees no solution however the National Credit Act provides a solution for this particular instance.

Section 103(5) allows that whilst a debtor is in default of his contractual instalment agreement, certain statutory amounts may not accrue in aggregate above the outstanding capital amount. The statutory amounts are found within section 101 (b) to (g) of the National Credit Act, and include an initiation fee; service fee; interest; cost of any credit insurance; default administration charges; and collection costs. Once these amounts referred to accrue during the period of default, whether they are paid or not, and equate, in aggregate, to the unpaid balance of the principle debt at the time the default occurs, no further charges may be levied (Nedbank v National Credit Regulator 2011(3) SA 581 (SCA)). The principle was founded on the need to develop a mechanism for setting limits on the interest that could accrue on a debt. In essence, the interest would cease to run on a debt when the unpaid (arrear) interest equated to the outstanding capital amount. However, once the interest was partially paid, the creditor was able to charge interest until the amount once again equated to the outstanding capital amount. The mechanism has now been introduced into legislation, and may be utilised by consumers who enter into credit agreements under the amount of R 250,000.00 (two hundred and fifty thousand Rands). For further clarification of the application of the National Credit Act, the consumer may refer to section 4. The drafters of the National Credit Act extended the original consumer protection mechanism, by stipulating the additional afore-

mentioned costs as being included when calculating the entire amount accrued during default. The provision is not perfect and should not be seen as a purely protective measure for debtors. The aim is to create a balance between creditor and debtor, and as such debtors should not simply default and hope that this provision will come to the rescue, because when the creditor does institute litigation proceedings against the debtor, the provision does not apply. Simply put, a debtor in default will be protected temporarily, but if he fails to make payments and the creditor decides to take further legal action, then this temporary aid will cease to apply. A further issue is that some debtors waive their statutory protection in the attempt to avoid litigation proceedings, but then may be left with never ending debt. For example, in the event of default where the statutory protection was waived, the debtor may not see a courtroom, but will be subjected to exorbitant compounded interest that continues to accumulate on the debt with no expiry date leaving the debtor trapped for at least the foreseeable future. In conclusion, debtors should strive as far as possible to pay their debts timeously, but in the event of default always remember that you have a protective measure in the National Credit Act under section 103(5). Finally, one should never forget that interest on debts, grow without rain and debts are like children, the smaller they are, the more noise they make.

MREIKS ON THE MOVE!

RAMATAMO WA MATAMONG

T

he flamboyant Alex FM Marketing Manager and the Breakfast show host Murendeni Ndanduleni has left the station to join the Free State Provincial Government. Last week Friday the popular disc jockey hosted his last show on Siyabavusa breakfast show amid scores of diehard fans, colleagues and friends who bode him farewell. He started his radio career two years ago working with Blackman (Lungamani Mufandilani) whom he is very grateful for taking him under his wings, together they had only one hour show in the morning(5-6am) before they went on to host 4 hour Siyabavusa which is one of the longest breakfast

show in the radio. He said he is leaving Alex Fm but will never be missed in the media fraternity. “I’ll be working as a Spokesperson for Free State MEC of Tourism and Economic Development, Mamiki Qabathe,” he said proudly. “I’ll still be around. Alex is my home. There are lot of projects underway that I’ll be doing with Alex FM.” “Murendeni came here knowing what he wanted and he has achieved exactly that. We are very proud of him. There is no better time than this one for him to move, and this is a lesson for all of us to know that working at Alex FM is a huge opportunity,” said Station Manager Trinity Mohlamme.

t’s a chilly Monday afternoon, Alex FM is broadcasting to thousands of listeners, and Alex Pioneer is scheduled to have an interview with Takalani Nemangowe who joined the station last year as a freelance newsreader. Even though he has Venda names, Takalani is quick to bring to our attention that he’s not a Venda speaking person nor was he born in Venda, in fact, he’s Pedi. We caught up with Takalani at the Alex FM newsroom. He seems to be full of energy and vibrant; and when asked to formally introduce himself, a smile is written all over his face. He drags the chair much closer to the table and murmurs “mhm!” “Well, Takalani is a simple young man who believes in God and likes socialising,” he explained with enthusiasm. “And oh, I’m a go getter as

from a remote rural area with limited or no resources, I then had difficulty making my dreams a reality but I always knew I belonged

behind the mic,” he told the newspaper. When he was only 16 years old, optimistic Takalani recorded his demo which he then sent to Limpopo’s mainstream radio giant, Thobela FM, but they always gave him excuses when doing follow ups. “Because of that experience, at some point I wanted to quit radio and do something ‘realistic’ like teaching or nursing, but I’m glad I never gave up.” “After I passed my matric with flying colours, I enrolled at Boston Media house and I was lucky because I won a draw worth of R90 000 which was presented to me by DJ Mo flava and Chomee,” explained Nemangowe. About Alex FM, it was last year in February when he first heard of the station, and like a true go getter, he took initiative to go see the station’s content manager.“It was only after two months that I got a call from the station saying they are looking for journalists and I came, I auditioned and got the job fair and square. I started working here last year July and I’m enjoying it. I’m gaining both confidence and experience at the same time,” he concluded. Takalani completed his diploma in media and he is gunning for more opportunities in the world of light, camera, mic on aaaand rolling!

’m not going to waste my valuable energy by sending my condolences to Generations’ Sello Mvuyane’s family. The man saw it coming and if I were invited to his funeral, I would jump to the opportunity and to take a front seat at his funeral just to enjoy seeing the coffin go into the ground. Yesus, the man put Akhona through hell and heads must roll to all the people involved, especially Ngamla and Phenyo. Cruel Noluntu is creating chaos and she won’t be able to handle the results. The lady is concerned with power and does not care who she hurts in the process, just like S’busiso. I would not be surprised if the two share the same bloodline.And then, what’s with Rhythm City’s Japhta? Ehe! Mehlolo e tla ka di size ke ya go botša. Who could have suspected Japhta would twotime Rose? Some men never want to grow up. Fate has once again decided in favour of Khuse Jezebel, Tshidi, and her up to no good ex-lover, Maidi. You don’t need to be a psychic to predict that Tshidi’s and Maidi’s professional relationship will end up under blanket. Mamokete should better prepare her heart for yet another TshidiMaidi scandal cause this is going to end in gossip tabloid. Can someone please warn Isidingo’s Rajesh to leave the game to its players? This mining rights fixture is beyond his capacity and the outcome could harm him for good. Manoeuvring has become Benjamin’s daily hobby. Barker inculcates malevolence behaviour in him and Benjamin has lost his innocent charm, glad Kimberly sees him for who he really is. Will the baby reconcile Nikiwe and Frank? Dr McNamara is strong, helping out someone who has the potential to ruin her happiness is remarkable. Oho, Muvhango’s miss goody-two-shoes, Thandaza, should get off her high horse.

Muvhango community should learn to never mess up with the dead man walking. Thandaza and Pheko feel the pressure of the ‘Boom Boom factor.’ Am I being paranoid or what but I can really sense some chemistry between Albert and Thuli.

BURIAL NOTICES

4-years back before I meet this spiritual powerful man Adamuz, happiness was rare in my life; my husband was cheating on me, kids were always sickly & no-money in the house. I tried everything from healers & priests but nothing seemed to work for me; only wasted more money. Luckily I saw testimonials on a local T.V station about another old man whose Mrs Phumulani & Her Lovely Family son Adamuz had saved from drugs & alcohol (3 days after the Special-Prayers) abuse plus also another divorced lady Adamuz had re-united her with her ex-husband after 9-years.

me, cleansed me from bad-luck & also gave me powerful lovecrystals plus a special-ring (to fix financial problems) 3-days after Adamuz prayers, my husband confessed everything & asked for forgiveness. Today my kids are healthy and I recently got a job promotion.

HAVE YOU REACHED A DEAD END IN YOUR LIFE? YOU TRIED EVERYTHING BUT NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK! NO MATTER WHAT PROBLEM YOU’RE FACING, DON'T SUFFER IN SILENCE. Even though others have failed to deliver to your

expectations, this may be your last chance to breakthrough. Contact: Adamuz!
