Mall no 3 breaks ground Leading JSE-listed company Resilient Property Income Fund last week Thursday officially turned the first sod of what is to become Burgersfort Mall, next to the extension of the R555 to Steelpoort and the R37 to Polokwane. Platinum Gazette attended the ceremony with one big question, as we attended the sod turning ceremony of the Burgersfort Mall next to the taxi rank just a couple of weeks ago. The developers quickly telephoned around as they were also not sure what was going on. After a while they came up with the answer that this will be Burgersfort Regional Mall. In their official press release recived by email after the fucntion, the official name remains Burgerfort Mall (maybe we are set for a brawl of the malls? ed). Whatever the case may be, the developers are quite earnest about the regional aspect of the development, as it will be the largest of the three current major retail developments in town (the of course are the other Burgersfort Mall next to the taxi rank and the Tubatse Mall at Spekboom River Estate on the other side of town towards Lydenburg). The developers say this regional shopping centre is scheduled to open in April 2013. The first phase of this comprehensive centre will comprise some 40 000 sqm, with expansion potential of up to 75 000 sqm. “Burgersfort Mall is to be anchored by Edgars, Game and Shoprite and will feature a well-balanced mix of South Africa’s favourite retailers” reads the official press release. “For the first time quality shopping in a first-rate environment will be available to Burgersfort residents in some 90 stores. The mall will serve Burgersfort and surrounds with top-notch shopping on a level not previously experienced in the region. Retail convenience and variety, highquality finishes, stylish design, excellent

access and superb visibility are combined at Burgersfort Mall to create a shopping centre that will be a real asset to its community, its retailers and its owners”. Resilient is one of the largest retail property investors in the Mpumalanga and Limpopo. Its investments include, amongst others, shopping centres in Mussina, Tzaneen, Thohoyandou, Mokopane, Burgersfort, Nelspruit and Polokwane. Resilient is also the major owner and codeveloper of the recently opened Mall of the North shopping centre which is currently the largest centre in the northern part of the country. Johann Kriek, executive director of Resilient, said the site for Burgersfort Mall was acquired in 2007 for the development of a regional shopping centre after Burgersfort was identified as one of the major growth nodes in the country. Public transport facilities will also be provided for at the centre and improvements to the surrounding roads will be an integrated part of the development. Kriek also said that the development of Burgersfort Mall has received robust support from the local council.

Leboeng celebrates old age and culture The aged in the Leboeng area (just before Strydom Tunnel en route from Ohrigstad) gathered at the Thusong service centre on Wednesday under the auspices of the Department of Social Development. The purpose of the day was to celebrate their old age and to show young people their heritage and customs. They also got important information from various roleplayers to make their old age days better. Aspects that received attention were amongst other things, how to too stay healthy, and looking after their diets, as well as their trelationships with younger family members. The Police at Leboeng Police Station also informed them about what to do if younger family members want to take their social pensions. According to the Police at Leboeng it is especially jobless children and grandchildren who harrass old people for their money. On their side the old people feel defenceless and do not want to report this harrassment for fear that their family members may go to jail. This problem was extensively discussed.

Kutullo feedback After Platinum Gazette published an article on 23 September about water problems in Kutullo, the newspaper received the sms below just before going to print.

Various cultural groups comprising of the aged entertained the large number of old people at Wednesday’s gathering at Leboeng’s Thusong Service centre. Various aspects of old age received attention during the day’s proceedings. Afterwards the guests received a hearty meal. In the photograph (right) Ms Joyce Mphaphuli (Leboeng Local Supervisor) and Ms Joyce Mapula Makgolane ( Provincial Coordinator: Older persons and Disability) of the Departement of Social Services dressed traditional for the occasion.

“Mr Swart is Kutullo again. after u published our story they sent us, one watertank which is not enough because it managed one street, and in the other side it only suply section D only , other sections they do not get nothing, in the other side they sent their truck on mondays only,many people they use to drink dirty water from the river. From Kutullo”.

Do you know exactly what you eat?


Do you know exactly what you eat? This is a question your dietitian or nutritionist will ask you if you see him or her about weight problems. Most of the time, people underestimate their food intake. If you’re overweight, it’s essential that you know what you eat in order to determine the most adequate diet or just break bad eating habits. Read the following and learn about ways to evaluate your diet. We’re all liars! If someone asks you what you’ve eaten today, you’ll have a natural tendency to lie about it. Many studies have shown that we undervalue our food consumption and more often than not, this is not even conscious. For instance, we “forget” that we ate between meals. And the more you want to control what you eat and try to limit your intake, the more you underestimate how much you have had. Only protein intake is more or less accurately evaluated. What you need to know Your dietitian or nutritionist will ask about your eating habits in rather extensive detail. In order to evaluate your profile, he or she will explore three essential points: 1. The types of foods you habitually consume and those you like best; 2. The circumstances under which you eat them; 3. Possible eating disorders (snacking, compulsive eating etc.) It is very important to balance your meals at all times and it is necessary to know where you lack. Knowing where you lack will help you supplement your nutrients intake. Note it is important to take your vitamins and minerals and balance your fluid and electrolytes levels.

Fabulous Food and Wine Fair for Cansa The Fabulous Food & Wine Fair took place on Friday and Saturday last week. All the funds raised with the event goes towards Cansa. The Fair kicked-off with an evening filled with good food wine and Mr Claude Moller as the guest speaker. The menu included freshly baked bread with jam, fresh home made tagliatelle with an alfredo reduction, oxtail in a shiraz reduction, seasonal vegetables and pumpkin fritters. Old fashioned Cape Brandy pudding with custard and deep roasted coffee. Moller related many stories and lessons during his turn in front of the audience, but essentially gave them the following message to take home:

“Remember, somewhere there is a terminally ill cancer patient who would give everything to have a week of your life�. On Saturday, food demonstrations took place as well as wine tasting and stalls sold home made food, biscuits, jam and much more. An extended power interruption did not prevent the crew from preparing delicious dishes and having lots of fun with those eager for new taste experiences. Ms Elize Ballack thanked everyone who contributed towards the success of the event and plans to make this an annual event so mark it on your calendar for 2012 as not to be missed.

Dalai Lama visum debacle - what do you think? This week Archbishop (emeritus) Desmond Tutu reacted with anger after his friend, the Dalai Lama cancelled his visit to South Africa for the Archbishop’s 80th birthday on 7 October. By Tuesday this week the Dalai Lama have not had surety that his visum would be approved and cancelled the visit. He was due to attend the birthday party, speak at universities and receive the Mahatma Gandhi peace prize in Durban. Tutu on Tuesday warned the ANC saying that leaders such as Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi came to a fall even though they had great support. “I am warning you that one day we will start praying for the downfall of the ANC government” he said. He lashed out that the South African government did not support the Tibetans “who are being viciously oppressed by the Chinese”. Cosatu stated that it is discrimination to refuse the Dalai Lama entrance to South Africa. The DA, IFP and FF+ all released statements condemning the fact that a visum was not granted in time. The ANC spokesman Mr Jackson Mthembu said that the Archbishop’s comparison of the ANC to the leaders of Egypt and Lybia and the apartheid government is “unfortunate and misplaced”. They also confirmed that the Dalai Lama was not refused entrance into the country by the time he cancelled his visit. We asked readers what they think about the whole issue.

Mr Solomon Mohlala said: “It is his own fault - he applied too late. I’m worried about the Bishop Tutu. The way he acted in the media is not right”.

Mr Maxwell Chihambakwe, Mr Welcome Msibi and Mr Aubrey Mokwena said: “It is an embarrasment for our country. We don’t think the government gave in under pressure to delay or not give him a visum. They were just slow”.

Ms Lizzie Bembane said: “It is an embarrasment that he had to cancel his visit. They should have supported him. Tutu has a right to be mad”. With her is Kabelo Bembane.

Mr David Malepe said: “The Dalai Lama should have submitted his application for a visum earlier. But due to the political environment we find that he is not able to come and visit. There is apparently some issues around it. I am not quite sure if government did this on purpose”.

Me. Ina Burgers sê: “Dit gaan oor die land se beeld. As ander hooggeplaastes vinnig gehelp kan word, moes hulle hom ook help. As dit vir Mandela was, het hulle dit gegee”. By haar is Bianca en Jaco Burger.

Mr Genius Baloyi and Mr Willy Baloyi said: “They were so slow because they wanted him to give up. Hulle moes hom ‘n visum gegee het. Dis ‘n groot embarrasment vir ons. ‘n Grote. He was coming for a good thing - a birthday of one of our leaders”.

Mr Leonard Makofane and Ms Mina Malwa said: “He should have been earlier. The government did however delay things on purpose. It is an embarrasment for our country”.

Mr Phaswane Ratseke said: “They submitted the thing too late”.

Who is the Dalai Lama?

Mr Crosby Masilela, Ms Bianca Mamabolo and Ms Thelma Matlala said: “If a normal person’s application takes long then it is fine that his did too. He should be treated like us. Government would definitely not give to pressure from China or any other government in the world”.

The Dalai Lama has been the spiritual leader of Tibet since the 17th century. According to the religious belief, each Dalai Lama is a reincarnation of the previous one. The current Dalai Lama is 76 years old and his name is Tenzin Gyatso. He is the 14th Dalai Lama. He has been identified as the next Dalai Lama at the age of 3 and started acting in the role of Dalai Lama when he turned 15. He has been in excile since his twenties as he tried to prevent the Chinese government to take over Tibet. In 1989 he won the Nobel prize for peace and travels the world for the advancement of peace, harmony and human understanding.

Junior jagters wys hul staal Die Bosbok tak van die SAJWV het verlede naweek hul jaarlikse Oefening Ramkat gehou. Tydens dié oefening word junior jagters se skietvernuf getoets met ses verskillende skietbane met windgewere, .22, 6mm, .270 en twaalfboor haelgewere. Hulle moet ook oorlewingstegnieke aanleer, ‘n roete-mars trotseer en die fynere kunsies van kookkuns in die bos bemeester. Deurentyd word hul uithouvermoë getoets. Die reën wat oor die naweek begin uitsak het, het die toets net

soveel moeiliker gemaak. Die NASP boogskiet het ook deel van die kamp uitgemaak. Die toppresteerders op die kamp was Biance Bell (goud), Kobus Jonker (silwer) en Jonathan van Gent (brons). Die span wat die opleiding gedoen het, het die volgende persone bedank: Piet de Jager vir die gebruik van die boskamp. Dwarsrivier Chroom Myn vir die energie drankies en Laramie Spur vir die middagete.
