Danger No warning signs, no barrier, cattle in the road, and heavy traffic makes this excavation on the side of the R36 road between Leboeng and Strydom Tunnel on the Abel Erasmus Pass all the more dangerous. Nobody seems to take resposibility or care to attempt to do something about it. We are investigating.

Disappointment for Bokoni Atlatsa Resources Corporation announced that the Department of Mineral Resources lifted the section 54 work stoppage order at Bokoni Platinum Mine’s UM2 shaft, and normal operations resumed on Friday, 30 August 2013. The company earlier announced that a winch operator lost his life in a scraper winch-related accident at Bokoni Platinum Mine’s (Bokoni) UM2 shaft section on Wednesday, 28 August 2013.Immediately after the accident Bokoni mine management stopped operations at the affected section. Harold Motaung, CEO of Atlatsa, said, “We deeply regret losing a member of our family. An improving safety culture, with

specific emphasis on changing individual behavioural patterns, is imperative to our overall transformation strategy at Bokoni. Management will continue to place emphasis on this focus area, which has been disappointing over the past month.” This is the second fatality at Bokoni within a month. A contract miner was fatally injured in a fall of ground accident at Bokoni Platinum Mine Vertical Shaft on Tuesday 6 August 2013. The fatalities come at a time when Bokoni’s safety record has been steadily improving over the past 15 months with two million fatality free shifts achieved on 3 August 2013.

Limpopo liquor blitz warns local taverns

Limpopo Liquor Inspectors scrutinising the credentials of a liquor trading establishment The Department of Trade and Industry (the dti), in partnership with the Limpopo Economic Development Environment and Tourism Department (Ledet) closed down five illegal taverns and issued fines totalling R83 500 during a three-day blitz inspection operation in Polokwane and surrounding areas. The joint operation which commenced from 29 to 31 August 2013 was conducted by officials from the dti’s National Liquor Authority (NLA), Ledet, the South African Police Services, the Department of Home Affairs and the Polokwane Local Municipality. According to the Director of Legal Support and Prosecutions at NLA, Mr Sandile Nkosi, the aim of the blitz operation was to enforce compliance to the Liquor Act and to ensure that traders operated within the set regulations as stipulated by their licensing conditions. “Within the three days of operation, we raided 192 operating outlets ranging from bottle stores, taverns, pubs and restaurants to manufactures and distributors. Of these establishments, we discovered five taverns were operating without legal licenses, and we appropriately closed them down. We also confiscated 8 500 litres of alcohol and issued fines totalling R83 500,” said Nkosi.

He added that the most common contravention was traders not complying with what is termed a “Liquor Restaurant License”. This license permits the trader to sell alcohol and serve food on their premises. “In most establishments we would discover that the trader is solely trading in alcohol and not serving any food. Upon further investigation the trader would plead ignorance and state lack of knowledge as a factor. Of course all of these would be tactics to justify their transgressions and we know this for a fact as we have it on good authority that provincial liquor inspectors workshop these traders prior to us instituting a blitz operation,” added Nkosi. The blitz operation targeted traders in and around the Polokwane Central Business District, Mankweng, Sebayeng, Solomondale and Westernburg, Zebediela and Lebowakgomo. The Liquor Act of 2003, which is administered by the dti, requires the department to reduce the socio-economic costs of liquor abuse in the country. The Act also requires that the NLA to promote the development of a responsible and sustainable liquor industry in a manner that inculcates the ethos of social responsibility among other things.

What is your opinion about SA A survey by the Fraser Institute in Canada containing the input of 742 global mining executives revealed that South Africa is the fourth least attractive investment destination in the world when it comes to mining. South Africa ranked lower than Zimbabwe. The executives’ comments about South Africa included: “Strikes, demonstrations, military killing workers”; “Country with unworkable political structure” and “Both South Africa and Zimbabwe are driving social experiments not driven by logic and economy but by ideology. In the absence of reason, primary industries become the cash cows to fund the unfundable. The rise of oligarchs in both countries evidences decline”. Mr Fred McMahon from the Fraser Institute said: “If you’re thinking of investing in South Africa, you don’t know if you’re going to have a mine, or whether you’re just going to have picketers walking around outside”. At the Mining Lekgotla held in Sandton last week, where the survey was discussed, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said: “So what are we doing with our resources, how do we attract investment and ensure that all stakeholders benefit from this investment?” He added that mining is a long term industry and that investors wanted to know with a good deal of certainty that their investments would be safe. He told the audience that everyone should work at changing the negative perceptions about South Africa. We asked readers what they think about the survey and how South Africa can turn things around as an investment destination.

Ms Regina Mamaila said: “The strikes, people complaining, wanting to take things into their own hands are all problems for investors. People say mines must belong to government. They complain about their salaries now, but what would it be like if government should take over the mines? People need to change their attitudes before we can change perceptions about South Africa. In South Africa we don’t want to do small business. When we see foreigners coming in and start to make money with small businesses we want to chase them away. When they leave we just go and sit with our arms folded again”.

Mr Jacob Mabetha and Mr Doctor Masinga said: “You know, there are too many strikes. Government must intervene. If there are always strikes, people won’t come. The damage strikes are doing is taking our economy down the drain. Here many companies run at a loss and there are too many expenses. However we would still take a risk and invest in South Africa”

Mr Maeyane Tadile said: “Yes, we are worse than Zimbabwe. I would be scared if I was a mining executive looking to invest. There are too many strikes and people die in these strikes. People are not getting enough money. Just look at the price of petrol and other expenses. Government must subsidise more things like petrol then South Africa would be more attractive with less problems.

Mr Chief Kgwete said: “We just have to work on our labour force and unions. Unions are becoming too friendly and sometimes are even part of investor companies. If we can fix this then things will come right. South Africa has a good labour force and we need to change the attitudes of people. We must just implement our labour laws to the full, then all will be alright. Investors must make workers part of the companies so that they benefit properly from the profits, but also lose if they strike”.

Me. Madeleine Venter en Mnr. Willem Fourie sê: “Suid-Afrika het potensiaal, maar dit word nie reg toegepas nie. Ek (Madeleine) was al in baie lande en ander lande is duur in vergelyking met ons. Jy kry hier eintlik baie vir jou rand. Ons bemark onsself verkeerd en ‘n mens moet goed soos stakings eers onder beheer kry voor beleggers beter van ons sal dink”.

Mnr. Bennie Tlou sê: “Ek sal ook bang wees om hier te belê. Ons moet almal saam sit en dink wat ons kan doen om sulke persepsies te verbeter. Dit kan ‘n groot probleem wees dié”.

Mr Skhumbuzo Gumede said: “Mining executives and investors are being chased away by crime and strikes as well as corruption. If we can deal with those, then investors will have confidence in South Africa, but it will take time. It won’t change overnight”.

Mr Thomas Numa said: “It’s not true that we are worse than Zimbabwe. If government can just provide for the people then there won’t be strikes and investors will like us. Government is failing us”.

Ms Evelyn Morena said: “We must be willing to do things for ourselves, be entrepreneurs and work hard then people from America and other countries will want to invest with us”.

Mr Willy Seloane and Mr Mahlatse Sebatane said: “To attract the foreign guys we must show them how we do things. To strike is to show that I need something. Most people don’t listen. Foreigners must learn how we live and do things and adapt, then they will get return on their investments. Before they put their money in South Africa they must learn our ways. Government must inform investors about this”. Links: Mnr. Renaldo Venter sê: “Dit is nie ‘n goeie plek vir buitelanders om te belê nie. Hier is te veel politiek, moord en bedrog. Deur die regte mense in die regte poste te sit kan SuidAfrika se beeld beter word”.

as an investment destination?

Ms Rebone Mokgethwa with Ms Mokgadi Sello said: “We’d invest because South Africa has lots of money and through investing here you can make a lot of profit. Our government must listen to the people. Attend to salary increases to stop useless strikes”.

Mr Anthony Mashego said: “South Africa is a good place to invest. We don’t have to worry about the increasing number of strikes. That is part of the rights of the workers. We’ve proved ourselves to be a safe country while hosting events such as the Soccer World Cup, Rugby World Cup, African Cup of Nations etc. Investors must realise they’ve exploited our country while they were paying our people peanuts. Now we know our rights. When we make demands they think we are negative. It is our right to demand that investors bring their money to South Africa because South Africa is now playing a parental role towards our neighbouring countries. They depend on South Africa and our economy”.

Ms Ivy Mafane and Ms Pretty Masuku said: “No, we would not invest in South Africa because there are too many strikes. We’d rather invest in Zimbabwe or Mozambique. We must find a way to have better labour relations, that will change the way people think about South Africa as an investment destination”.

Mr Joshua Kgorutle and Mr Schoeman Malepe said: “We’d invest in South Africa. There is a lot of opportunity. Corruption must however be rooted out and the police must help do that because communities cannot do that on their own. The mentality of employers towards employees must also be changed, then investors will come here”.

Right: Mr Mpho Adolf Maropane said: “In South Africa there is a lot of poor people. They need jobs. Investors should not be scared to put money in South Africa because these people want to work and have jobs. South Africa is a cool country. We are one nation that can do anything”.

Mr Rustin Moraba, Mr Bennett Moraba and Mr Konana Mabelane said: “The whole South Africa has strikes and the problem is the leaders. We would not be scared to invest and do business in South Africa if we were acting for an international company. Corruption is the problem here. If that can change, we can change the negative perceptions about South Africa”.

Mnr. Mohamed Salim Essack sê: “Ek kan verstaan dat ons daar op die lys lê. Ons kort stability om dié goed te verbeter. Ons in Burgersfort voel eerste as daar iets in die mynbedryf gebeur. Johannesburg voel dit eers ses maande later. Almal wag vir dit wat in Zimbabwe gebeur het, om ook hier te gebeur. Hulle doubt ons politics en economy. As ek vir ‘n mynmaatskappy moes besluit oor investment sou ek dit eers stadig doen en kyk wat gebeur met die strikes ens”.

Mr Kenneth Bamthandi Makofane, Mr Julius Mpho Mamogale and Mr Morgan Mafologela said: “We would obviously not consider South Africa for investment if we were working for an international company. The strike rate is too high. To solve the problem people need to be educated about politics. There are countless numbers of mickey mouse organisations who still believes in power struggles instead of engaging management in an intellectual debate. To fix it we need to change people’s attitudes”.

Mr Samuel Shime Matuludi and Mr Tlaishego Makofane said: “We would not invest in South Africa. You are not safe here. Even from the police you are not safe. A return on investment is the problem when trying to get foreign investors. To fix this they must start with the labour force. Start at the top and clear out all corruption”.

Mr Sammy Masite said: “No, we are not worse than Zimbabwe. Government must contribute towards the salaries of employees at the mines, then investors will be interested in our country. More money means less strikes. Our government is responsible for this thing”.

Calvin College Family Day hosted ‘This day is meant to bring together the various stakeholders in education’ Last week Saturday Calvin College hosted their annual Family Day at the school. This day is meant to bring together the various stakeholders in education such as educators, learners and parents. The guest speaker, Pastor Tema, praised educators and learners for taking the school to greater heights in the academic field. He advised learners against taking drugs and alcohol as these bad practices would act as barriers in achieving their goals. There were various performances and displays by the learners. These included the grade 9 technology demonstrations that were testimony to their abilities to transfer knowledge taught into reality. The demonstrations were mainly different models that linked theory with practice. The Director of the Calvin College, Mr. Antony Devassy, is currently expanding the school. New classroom blocks are under construction to accommodate more learners in 2014. Enrolment for new learners is currently taking place on Saturdays until the end of November 2013.

The word Thusanang means to help each other. On Saturday the group held a small concert with the theme that all are one in God. Although women may wear different masks, have different skin colours or jobs, they are all the same in their hearts and before God. The Women are trying to empower themselves through the group and anyone who would like to become involved in terms of sponsorship or support can contact Emilia van Rensburg on 083 674 2564.

SPORT Gwarra-Gwarra golfdag Verlede Saterdag het ongeveer 80 golfspelers by Tubatse Chrome Klub saamgetrek vir die jaarlikse GwarraGwarra golfdag. Die wind het veral deur die oggend baie gewaai en dinge vir die spelers bemoeilik. Panarotti’s Burgersfort was net buite die Klubhuis gereed om spelers met ‘n koue bottel water te verwelkom. Hulle was een van die dag se borge. Sulke betrokkenheid is deel van die Panarotti’s gees van omgee.
