A bloody clash between opposing structures that resulted in injuries and the institution of criminal charges on Monday, signifies an evidently greater brewing political war that is being fought on the streets of Polokwane. Monday’s occurrences follow a series of reported interventions steered by the Radical Economic Transformation Forum (RETF), a formation that was established in August last year and has a foothold in Limpopo and Free State. Its members are seemingly using platforms of government and self-imposed measures to raise discontent over the awarding of tenders in the To page 2

Political war turns violent From page 1 province and local businesspeople and labourers allegedly not benefitting from contracts or tenders in their area. As the deafening voices of discontent are progressively drawing attention to their anticorruption message, political players are seemingly being engaged in the bigger battle. Initially there was the reported disruption of a meeting of the Department of Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs (Coghsta) by RETF members at a Polokwane lodge towards the end of last month, then the interruption of an Integrated Development Plan (IDP)/budget consultation meeting of Polokwane Municipality at Jack Botes hall last Thursday evening. On Saturday evening the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in Limpopo lashed out with a media statement on the RETF’s perceived harassment of black businesspeople in the city on Friday. A day and a half later came the explosive noon showdown on a sidewalk in front of a posh hotel in the central business district (CBD). Monday’s meeting of members of the RETF with stakeholders on the issue of empowering local contractors held at the hotel was reportedly interrupted by a group referred to as “blood hungry hooligans”. Sources and images of the occurrences pinpointed EFF Provincial Secretary Jossey Buthane to have barged in with reinforcements. Attempted murder, assault charges registered In no uncertain terms the RETF made it clear in a statement issued by its chairperson’s office, that it would ensure Buthane faced the full wrath of the law. After the incident that reportedly led to the injury of a local councillor and two of their members, charges of attempted murder, one of assault and two of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm were registered. Apparently it is not the end of the bloodshed as sources raised alarm about RETF members allegedly planning revenge against their op-

ponents. Clips forwarded from different corners depict persons identified as EFF supporters in red T-shirts assaulting members of the RETF, being kicked and beaten by attackers armed with clubs and pick axe handles. Buthane is visible in more than one of the videos relating to the incident. After the alleged encounter Polokwane Observer met and photographed Buthane in Hans van Rensburg Street behind the hotel as he led a group of predominantly male supporters armed with pick axe handles and clubs, some aggressively enquiring why photos were being taken. They made their way down the one-way in Marshall Street seemingly on their way back to the EFF provincial headquarters. Contradicting versions of events Buthane’s version of the preceding happenings starkly contradicted that of RETF Chairperson Johz Mamabolo. Buthane said they had taken a decision to peacefully patrol the streets of Polokwane up until they got a tip about the closing of an office in Schoeman Street, only to find that the RETF was having a meeting there. According to him the fight started when RETF members exited the hotel and started shouting insults. When they wanted to leave there was an exchange of words and a stone hit a councillor, whose full details he didn’t have. He added that he had taken his own vehicle to take the injured councillor to hospital. He referred to RETF members closing businesses of black South Africans without explanation in Polokwane on Friday, apparently in the name of empowerment of the youth and locals. Buthane reiterated that the EFF didn’t have a problem with the RETF, only when they targeted individual businesspeople. During Monday’s telephonic conversation, as additionally set out in EFF Limpopo’s statement issued on Saturday, he named ruling party leaders forming and funding the RETF to deal with their competitors. RETF version On Monday afternoon Mamabolo explained the

RETF was engaging Polokwane Municipality on the issue of contracts and tenders having to benefit local contractors, which was the purpose of the meeting with stakeholders on Monday. He mentioned he had gone to Buthane’s office that morning, at a time when some 100 to 200 EFF supporters had gathered at the party’s provincial headquarters, and the two of them agreed that there was no fight between their forum and the EFF. Without further ado he proceeded to the meeting only to be informed at a later stage of the arrival of a convoy armed with knobkieries and new pick axe handles that started beating up municipal councillor Papas Moakamedi and four of their members. According to him Nkadimeng had refused to meet with them twice after their first engagement two weeks ago. Mamabolo alleged that for their meeting to be interrupted Polokwane Executive Mayor Thembi Nkadimeng would have summoned Buthane, whom he said had gone inside the hotel at the time to beat up three of their members. He emphasised the inclusion of local businesses in contracts awarded for projects in their area as the cause the RETF was fighting for, “because they have been excluded for a long time”. Mamabolo conceded that a political war had now been taken to the streets, adding that in all their interventions they had never been violent but just displayed their displeasure. He said after a sit-in at the Coghsta MEC’s offices two Thursdays ago, which followed the initial disruption of the departmental meeting with entrepreneurs at the venue outside Polokwane, changes had subsequently been made to a clause contained in related RDP housing tender documents. Departmental feedback on the matter is still awaited. He refuted allegations of the RETF closing down businesses on Friday and stated they had visited three sites of projects around Polokwane to request the contractors to comply with the law that dictates employment of 30% local labour force and sub-contractor inclusion. Mamabolo emphasised that the allegations

around their funding were unfounded. “They just want to derail our cause. We’re not aligned to any party.” When following up further information with him yesterday (Wednesday) Mamabolo denied that the RETF’s members intended revenge against the EFF, saying that they were going to concentrate on their core mandate and mission of unlocking opportunities for local companies. Neither would they pursue the EFF, he added in conclusion. “Mr Buthane’s fight is not an EFF fight.” Victim recalls attack Moakamedi, who is the Chairperson of Polokwane Council’s Rules and Ethics Committee and was reportedly among those assaulted outside the hotel where he was supposed to attend the meeting with the RETF and other stakeholders, said he had lost consciousness after being hit in the face, on the head and right ear with a club only to awake at a medical practice after the incident. He had later been informed that he was transported there by two EFF members, he said. In relating what happened on Monday, he said he had gone back to his car that was parked on the pavement to collect his diary that he forgot. He explained that he had still left the hotel premises with Buthane, who couldn’t trace two RETF members whom he was looking for. When questioned by EFF members on the side walk whether he was one of the two men Buthane was looking for, Buthane declined and identified him, he said. When he had returned he was approached by four big men with sticks, whereupon one beat him in the face with a club, he recalled. He then lost consciousness. Provincial Police’s feedback Provincial Police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe confirmed three counts of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm having been registered. No arrests have been made as yet.

Limpopo government departments fail to pay 4 681 invoices ENDY SENYATSI >>endy@observer.co.za Four Limpopo Government departments have in the previous financial year failed to pay a cumulative total of 4 681 invoices. The departments have to pay invoices within 30 days but Health had failed to pay 4 571 invoices, Education 43 invoices, Transport 52 invoices and Social Development 15 invoices. This information was revealed by Provincial Government spokesperson, Phuti Seloba during a Post Executive Council (Exco) media briefing at the Premier’s Office last Thursday. He stated that Education at 91,95% and Health at 75,84% did not achieve the 95% compliance rate set for the province for 2017/18 financial year. He said the percentage of invoices paid within the prescribed 30 days of receipt during March 2018 was 95,57%, which was 0,57% above the 95% compliance rate set for all departments.

Four departments paid all their invoices within the given time and they are Limpopo Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (1 282 invoices), Transport (820 invoices), Office of the Premier (769 invoices) and Provincial Treasury (560 invoices), Seloba indicated. Asked the total amount for the outstanding 4 681 invoices, Seloba said they don’t deal with the figures but the number of unpaid invoices. He stressed that invoices should be paid on time for service providers to benefit. Allegations that the Provincial Government had failed to spend over R1 billion in the previous financial year, a report on revenue and expenditure tabled at the meeting confirmed the claims and highlighted that as of 31 March the overall provincial expenditure was at R61,8 billion which is 98,7% of the total adjusted budget of R62,8 billion. Seloba said it was rare to spend 100% of the budget but reiterated that Limpopo Government was doing well especially when

it comes to revenue collection. The report indicated that compensation of employees recorded an expenditure of R42,6 billion which is 99,7% while goods and services recorded an expenditure of R9,1 billion which is 96,8% and transfers and subsidies amounts to R7,9 billion or 98,9% of the total budget. Payment for capital assets recorded an expenditure of R2,1 billion which is 86,9%, conditional grants expenditure was standing at R7,7 billion which is 97,3% of the total adjusted budget of R8,1 billion. The provincial infrastructure recorded an expenditure of R5,3 billion which is 97% of the total adjusted provincial infrastructure budget of R5,4 billion and revenue amount of R1,316 billion or 101,5% out of a target of R1,138 billion was collected, it was learnt. Seloba emphasised that the Exco meeting was to reflect on matters that affect financial management, strengthening of governance and government priority programmes to accelerate service delivery.

Edu Dept sits with R177 million meant to fix schools ENDY SENYATSI >>endy@observer.co.za

W

ith a budget allocation of R177 million to fix all schools across the province and preference to be given to the torched schools in Vuwani, only eight out of 31 schools in Vuwani have reportedly been refurbished thus far although the funds were allocated in 2016/17 financial year and contractors were reportedly appointed on 15 February last year already. The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Limpopo accuses both Minister for Basic Education, Angie Motshekga and Education MEC Ishmael Kgetjepe for the alleged failure to accelerate the process of rebuilding the remaining schools and ignoring their responsibilities of ensuring that children get the best possible

education. DA Provincial Leader, Jacques Smalle reportedly said the department had confirmed in a written reply to the party that the money was allocated in the 2016/17 financial year, but only eight out of the 31 schools were refurbished. He further said the party can confirm that the Department of Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure conducted an assessment that estimated the damage to all 31 schools to be worth R177,5 million. However, the assessment report further indicated that the upgrades and maintenance required in the same schools including the riot damages amounted to R462 million, explained Smalle. “The contracts for these projects were awarded on 15 February 2017 but it is extremely astonishing that a year on, only eight schools were attended to. The DA’s biggest

concern is that the R177 million budgeted falls short of the required R462 million. DA will write followup questions to the department seeking a full report on how the budgeted money was spent, plans to provide the shortfall in money required to repair all the schools and to provide further information and deadlines on rebuilding the remaining schools before the winter season,” he stated. Departmental spokesperson Sam Makondo also confirmed that R177 million was budgeted to fix all schools in Limpopo but could not reveal as to how many schools were fixed thus far as he responded to the question by saying: “Work is continuing in this regard across the province.” When asked as to how much has been used so far, Makondo opted not to comment.

Man kills girlfriend, son and then takes own life Police are investigating a case where a 33-year-old man allegedly killed his wife (23) and two-year-old son before hanging himself at Ga-Thoka Village outside Mankweng on Friday. Provincial Police Spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe indicated that a passer-by had alerted the Police after

discovering a man hanging from a tree. Police and emergency personnel who arrived on the scene declared him dead. Further investigation led Police to the man’s house where they found the bodies of his girlfriend and son who had both been stabbed to death. Ngoepe added that Police condemn

any act of violence perpetrated against women and children. He further urged people experiencing family problems to consult relevant authorities for assistance. The motive behind the killings are still under investigation but domestic violence cannot be ruled out.

Former Education Department assistant director jailed ENDY SENYATSI >>endy@observer.co.za Former Department of Education assistant director, Mbhazima David Mabasa has been sentenced to four years’ imprisonment with an option of a R160 000 fine, half of which is suspended for five years by Polokwane Magistrate’s Court last Thursday. According to Limpopo Hawks spokesperson Matimba Maluleke, Mabasa was arrested by the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Investigation Unit in May last year after he demanded R4 400 from a

University of Venda student, who had applied for a bursary. It was reported that Mabasa demanded the money to approve the application. Maluleke stated in a media release that Mabasa was granted R1 000 bail and subsequently made a series of court appearances, which culminated in the recent conviction and sentence. Department of Education spokesperson Sam Makondo emphasised that the department was against fraud and corruption practices and reiterated that anyone found engaging in such activities will face the law.

No show by Premier, MECs at Workers Parl ENDY SENYATSI >>endy@observer.co.za

T

he 2018 Workers Parliament convened by the Provincial Legislature last Friday has met with criticism from the Democratic Alliance (DA) in Limpopo who expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that Premier Stan Mathabatha and certain Members of the Executive Council (MECs) failed to attend the session to listen to challenges faced by officials in the public sector. The initial statement issued by the Legislature last Tuesday highlighted the theme of the sitting as ‘Celebrating the lives of Mama Sisulu and Nelson Mandela 1918 – 2018’ and it was expected to focus on issues including job creation, reflections on the meaning of International Workers’ Day and a close look into the legislations and policies that address abuse and practises that deprive many workers of basic protection. In a statement issued by the party, DA Limpopo Spokesperson on Quality of Life and Status of Women, Youth and Disability, Katlego Phala said trade unions representing educators wanted urgent intervention from Education MEC Ishmael Kgetjepe regarding corporal punishment, teacher safety, drug abuse and teenage pregnancy in schools but Kgetjepe was not available to account.

A union from the health sector had hoped to lodge a formal complaint with Health MEC Phophi Ramathuba regarding all the challenges they face in the rural clinics and hospitals, but no response was forthcoming, Phahla pointed out. One of the objectives of the Workers’ Parliament was to educate and share information with the workers as well as facilitating a direct oversight exercise that involves all the key role players such as the Legislature, MECs and the targeted beneficiaries in one sitting, Phala explained. She went on to say the last Workers’ Parliament was held almost six years ago and it could have been an appropriate platform for Mathabatha and his cabinet to take note of some of the burning issues raised by workers and initiate plans to address them. Provincial Government Spokesperson, Phuti Seloba said the DA should first ask the reasons for the Premier and some MECs’ absence before jumping to conclusions, adding that the Provincial Government meets with trade unions often to address workers’ concerns and they will continue assisting workers were possible. Seloba indicated that the Workers’ Parliament was a critical sitting and that they take workers serious. He said the DA must learn to address issues with relevant parties first before rushing to the media.

Relief for commuters as bus strike ends ENDY SENYATSI >>endy@observer.co.za Bus commuters across the province can breathe a sigh of relief following an agreement reached by trade unions and employers that ended the national bus strike on Monday. The strike, in its fifth week running, left commuters stranded with many forced to resort to using expensive taxis. Great North Transport (GNT) drivers returned to work on Tuesday morning and the company’s Marketing and Business Development Manager, Patrick Monkoe stated that all commuters who had bought tags will be able to claim their lost trips and the process already started on Tuesday evening. He further said all their buses were back on the road on Tuesday morning and they were delighted that negotiators had reached an agreement. When asked how much was lost due to the strike, Monkoe said management was expected to meet later in the week to discuss such details. The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) media officer, Zanele Sabela said the unions and employers agreed to a 9% increment across the board for the first year which

started on 1 April and 8% for the second year. She indicated that bus drivers lost about 15 days of work and reiterated that they will be paid the days they worked before the strike with the increase. “The past five weeks have been hard but we are happy that we managed to reach an agreement. We would like to thank our members for their patience and support. I also want to thank the five trade unions which have been part of the negotiations for their unity. The unions are Satawu, the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa, Transport and Allied Workers Union of South Africa, Transport and Omnibus Workers’ Union and Tirisano Transport Workers Union,” she explained. In a statement issued by the Department of Transport, Minister Blade Nzimande reportedly said he was grateful for the decision to end the strike and reiterated that they will continue to engage the bus industry on pertinent issues that affect the industry including issues relating to bus subsidies, broadening the supply value chain of the industry, to include the historically marginalised groups, including, women, youth and people living with disability.

that was found abandoned in Polokwane Game Reserve last Sunday.

No charges have been registered against the owner of a luxury sedan found abandoned in Polokwane Game Reserve early last Sunday morning after it had apparently left the road the previous day. A visitor to the facility said his name was the first to be recorded in the visitor’s book at the entrance shortly after 06:45. “I noticed the abandoned vehicle next to the road near the Tom Naudé koppie. Judging by all the empty liquor bottles found along roads in the reserve, it appears that the place is becoming a popular place to socialise,” the source commented. Communications and Marketing Manager of Polokwane Municipality, Matshidiso Mothapo con-

firmed that the vehicle was found by municipal officials last Sunday morning. “Traffic officials attended to the matter and no charges were registered. No municipal property or any animals were involved or harmed,” Mothapo said. The owner of the vehicle was not identified. Mothapo appealed to visitors to the facility to observe the speed limits and always to endeavour not to disturb the habitat. “Also consider fellow visitors,” Mothapo urged. At the time of going to print, it could not be established when the vehicle had been retrieved.

DA takes Polokwane Municipality to SAHRC over lack of water >> Community allegedly deprived of potable water >> Municipality denies allegations BARRY VILJOEN >>barryv.observer@gmail.com Democratic Alliance (DA) councillor for Ward 29 in Polokwane Municipality, Sarah Modiba filed a complaint against the municipality with the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) on Monday for failing to provide clean water to the residents of Segopye and the Lenyenye section outside Mankweng. According to Modiba, the DA conducted a door-to-door campaign in the area last week and realised that residents are currently fetching water from a well that has a very low yield. “Water supply dries up in the mornings and the level only rehabilitates in the late afternoons and the municipality fails to provide

water tankers as an interim relief,” Modiba said. Asked whether the matter was raised with the municipality, Modiba replied in the negative. “It is not my way. We have identified the problem and have an oversight role to play. I have to expose the municipality,” Modiba said. Victor Mavhidula, Provincial Manager of the SAHRC, accepted the documentation and said that the matter will be assessed and if there are no other issues, the site will be visited in due course. “We will also engage with Polokwane Municipality and may find an interim intervention,” Mavhidula said. He could not provide time frames for the process. Communications and Marketing Manager of the municipality, Matshidiso Mothapo commented on the matter, confirming that the municipality is indeed supplying water to the area in question. “The municipality supplies the Segopye area including the Lenyenye section with a functional system that includes boreholes and supply from Lepelle Northern Water. On top of these, the supply is augmented with water tanker supply on a weekly basis to cover areas that are on elevated catchment and may not be covered due to low pressure,” Mothapo said and added that the municipality is not aware of anyone who is fetching water from a well in that area as the municipality provides clean drinking water to the community. Mothapo admitted that there may be challenges with pump operators, but stated that the municipality’s Water Section has been instructed to engage with Lepelle Northern Water to investigate the matter and provide the full facts. “The municipality is highly responsive to the needs of its communities and whenever there are challenges with services, the municipality intervenes to ensure services are provided in a sustainable manner. We continue to work closely with Lepelle Northern Water and other community stakeholders and the municipality will cooperate fully and provide all facts to the SAHRC should such an inquiry be brought to our attention.”

Polokwane Municipality removed litter from a pavement in Natrium Street last week after media enquiries, but other illegal dumping sites in the area still leaves much to the desire.

Muni service delivery remains a headache usinesspersons and general road users of the city share the opinion that Polokwane Municipality is failing to maintain a safe and clean environment that lives up to the city’s status as the Greenest City in the province. “Street littering in the industrial and commercial areas as well as in the city centre appears to be out of hand and the municipality is clearly not dealing with the problem,” a businessman said. “Waste is dumped on pavements right next to the bulk containers that are provided and it not only creates a health hazard, but also poses a threat to pedestrians and motorists. It may assist if the containers are emptied within shorter intervals or be increased.” Residents are also unhappy about the lack of supervision of contractors involved in the replacement of the old asbestos cement water pipes and road surfaces that are excavated during maintenance operations. “It is apparent that the municipal workers or the contractors employed by the municipality are not supervised. Trenches are left uncovered with no signs to warn motorists and no attempts are made to rehabilitate the areas immediately after work has been done,” a resident remarked. Communications and Marketing Manager of Polokwane Municipality, Matshidiso Mothapo commented that complaints regarding littering have been referred to the responsible

unit of the municipality. “They will deal with the situation and also recommend solutions in the event of illegal dumping which is becoming a serious problem in the city area,” Mothapo said. “Regarding excavations and road surfaces, the municipality has on several occasions announced that the city area is undergoing several construction projects that will run over a period and are meant to improve efficiency and enhance the economic activities and the quality of services to the residents of the area. We have also posted several billboards around the city that Polokwane is a city under construction. Until these projects are finished some of the areas will remain a sore to the eye,” Mothapo said. According to Mothapo, the municipality will continue to improve its systems with regard to project management to avoid unnecessary inconveniences to residents that may be resulting from contractors who are not putting the necessary markings on roads. ”Once the projects are done, the rehabilitation will continue with results that will benefit the residents and those commuting to Polokwane on a daily basis for economic activities. The municipality will continue to plead with the public to remain patient and team with us in our endeavour to build a smart city together instead of complaining,” Mothapo stated and added that the municipality welcomes suggestions from members of the public on how best to improve its operations. “Polokwane belongs to all of us, let’s contribute positively to its development,” Mothapo urged.

Dewan Gobey en Christelle Swart, hoofleiers van Pietersburg Laerskool oorhandig kontant aan Lana Steyn, ‘n onderwyser van Akademie Reformia wat onlangs deur ‘n krokodil aangeval en ‘n groot gedeelte van haar linkerhand verloor het. Saam met hulle is Steyn se vriend, Mike van der Merwe wat haar uit die krokodilkake gered het. Suidskoolleerders het R5 betaal om gewone klere aan te trek waarna die geld aan Steyn geskenk is om met haar mediese uitgawes te help.

ie moontlike onteiening van bates sonder vergoeding het nie bloot betrekking op grond nie en dit is noodsaaklik dat kommentaar en besware met betrekking tot die regering se voorgestelde wysiging van die Grondwet betyds ingedien word om te verseker dat die regering kennis neem van landsburgers se weerstand daarteen. Dit was die boodskap van verteenwoordigers van AfriSake en AfriForum wat belangstellendes verlede Woensdagaand by Pietersburgklub toegespreek het. Regs- en beleidsanalis van AfriSake, Armand Greyling, het verduidelik dat die voorgestelde wetgewing kan toelaat dat vaste eiendom, besighede en selfs intellektuele goedere soos patente deur die regering onteien kan word sonder dat vergoeding daarvoor betaal word. Volgens Greyling berus die mosie wat in dié verband by die parlement ingedien is, op statistiese fiksie oor grondeienaarskappatrone in Suid-Afrika. “In die mosie is beweer dat die ‘African majority’ in die land slegs 13% van die grond besit, terwyl die blanke minderheid teen 1994 reeds 87% van alle grond besit het. Die waarheid is egter dat grond in regeringsbesit en grond in die voormalige tuislande, selfregerende state en die grond van ontwikkelingstrusts in 1994 tot 28% van die totale bruikbare grond in die land uitgemaak het. Die skaarsbewoonde halfwoestyn van die Noord-Kaap is ook by die statistiek ingesluit en verwring as sodanig die

prentjie en die statistiek wat as gesaghebbend gebruik word, maak dus geen sin nie,” het Greyling gesê. Hy het benadruk dat die publiek voor 31 Mei besware teen die voorgestelde wetgewing moet indien om te verseker dat hul stilswye nie as instemming beskou word nie. Die tydperk vir besware is intussen tot 15 Junie verleng. AfriSake se bestuurder van die arbeidsregsadvieseenheid, Charles Castle, het bevestig dat AfriForum gereed is om die eerste geval van onteiening sonder vergoeding as ‘n toetssaak in die hof te beveg. “AfriForum doen deurlopend navorsing oor hierdie saak en beywer hom daarvoor om internasionale steun te werf om die voorgestelde grondwetswysiging te beveg,” het Castle gesê en bygevoeg dat ‘n afvaardiging van AfriForum tans in die VSA is om meningsvormers oor die aangeleentheid in te lig. Eugene Brink, AfriForum se strategiese raadgewer oor gemeenskapsake, het inligting oor AfriForum se werksaamhede verskaf en verduidelik dat AfriForum deel van die Solidariteitbeweging is. AfriForum se assistent-veiligheidskoördineerder, Llewellynn Hemmens, het riglyne oor die hantering van onwettige grondbesetters verskaf en benadruk dat ‘n klag onverwyld by die polisie gelê moet word indien grond beset word. “Dit is die polisie se werk om betreders te verwyder. As strukture eers bewoon word, moet ‘n hofbevel verkry word en kan die proses duur raak. Dit is ook raadsaam om kundige advies in te win sodra die probleem ontstaan,” het Hemmens aanbeveel.

Eugene Brink van AfriForum verduidelik sy organisasie se betrokkenheid by die gemeenskap.

Llewellynn Hemmens van AfriForum vertel hoe grondeienaars hul eiendomsreg kan beveilig teen onwettige besetting.

Five suspected robbers in dock RC MYBURGH >>rc.observer@gmail.com Five wanted suspects including a former Police reservist are expected to appear in the Praktiseer Magistrate’s Court again today (Thursday) after they were arrested during a Police operation last week. Tumelo Kgaphola (30), Thabang Mokganyetsi (24), William Mokoena, Comfort Sefoloshe (both 23) and Prince Masanabo (22) are expected to apply for bail during today’s hearing.

Provincial Police Spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe indicated that the five, believed to have been terrorising communities and businesses in the area, were arrested at different locations within the Burgersfort cluster. Among them is a former Police reservist believed to be the kingpin behind a series of crimes. Mojapelo said that the five suspects are believed to have been involved in recent incidents which include four armed robberies at two fuel stations in Burgersfort, two armed robberies at a jewellery store at Tubatse Crossing, murder and hi-

CRIME shorts Vrou se neef in hof oor haar verkragting ‘n Sestigjarige vrou se 29-jarige neef wat haar na bewering verkrag het sou na verwagting vroeg vandeesweek in die Giyani landdroshof op aanklag van verkragting verskyn het. Provinsiale polisiewoordvoerder, Moatshe Ngoepe sê die verdagte is verlede Donderdag deur lede van die polisie se gesinsgeweld, kinderbeskerming en seksuele oortredingseenheid in Selawa-nedersetting buite Giyani aangekeer. Volgens Ngoepe was die slagoffer glo laataand op pad huis toe nadat sy ‘n funksie by ‘n nabygeleë huis bygewoon het. Haar neef het aangebied om haar te vergesel, maar het haar langs die pad oorrompel, die bos ingesleep en glo verkrag. Ngoepe sê hy het haar glo twee keer verkrag, maar gevlug nadat hy mense in hulle rigting gehoor stap het. Die vrou het alarm gemaak en die polisie is ontbied. Vinnige optrede deur die polisie het tot die verdagte se arrestasie kort na die voorval gelei.

Woman in dock for stabbing husband to death

Police Commissioner joins operation Fiela II RC MYBURGH >>rc.observer@gmail.com Major successes were recorded during the Police’s ongoing Operation Fiela II when Provincial Police Commissioner Nneke Ledwaba joined his men in closing down on Mankweng and Botlokwa on Monday and Tuesday. The group was composed of Police members from the relevant security cluster, community based crime prevention structures as well as members of the Public Order Policing Unit (Pops), Visible Policing Unit and officials from the Department of Home Affairs. Provincial Police Spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe indicated that the objectives of the operation were to deal with cross-border crimes such as vehicle theft syndicates, illegal immigration, mushrooming drug smuggling and road traffic transgressions. The process was conduct-

ed through tracing wanted suspects, roadblocks, vehicle check points and intelligence-driven tactical operations. Ngoepe said in Botlokwa 19 illegal immigrants were detained, one person arrested for harbouring illegal immigrants and 21 traffic fines issued. A total of 403 vehicles were searched. In Dennilton, Vuwani, Tzaneen, Burgersfort and Thohoyandou areas 88 suspects, aged 20 to 48, were arrested for various offences ranging from assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, contravention of the road traffic regulations, failure to comply with the Liquor Act, rape, common robbery, business robbery, drunken driving, possession of dangerous weapons, the Immigration Act, murder, malicious damage to property as well as unlawful possession of firearm and ammunition, according to Ngoepe. He added that a vehicle which was reported hijacked in Sinoville, Pretoria recently was

recovered abandoned in Dennilton during the operation. A firearm with 59 rounds of live ammunition were also recovered. The suspects will appear before different Magistrate's Courts across the province soon.

Burst water pipe in Marshall Street causes water loss BARRY VILJOEN >>barryv.observer@gmail.com

A major pipe burst in Marshall Street caused a lot of water to go to waste on Monday.

A major pipe burst that occurred in Marshall Street early on Monday morning and that was only blocked off in the afternoon, left consumers without water for the most part on Monday. No other shortages or low pressure were reported. Communications and Marketing Manager of Polokwane Municipality, Matshidiso Mothapo, reported on Tuesday that the level of the Potgieter Avenue reservoir was at 85%, while the 50 and 30 mega litre reservoirs were at 51% and 34% respectively. The level

of the old 30 mega litre reservoir was at 45% while the level of the Seshego reservoir recovered to 24%. The flow from Ebenezer dam and the Olifantspoort plant were 141 litres per second and 70 litres per second respectively. The schedule on the website of the Department of Water and Sanitation indicated that the levels of the Dap Naudé and Magoebaskloof dams were at 100,7% and 100,4%. The Ebenezer and Doorndraai dams were at 91,7% and 42,1% respectively. The level of the Flag Boshielo Dam was at 101,1% and the Hans Merensky Dam was at 101,6% of capacity.

Linda Nyama (26) will appear in the Moutse Magistrate’s Court again next month after she abandoned bail during her appearance last Wednesday in connection with the killing of her husband Isaac Mukondo early last week. Nyama was arrested for allegedly stabbing her husband to death at Kirkvoschefontein outside Dennilton. Maphure Manamela from the Provincial Police Media Centre indicated that the woman allegedly suspected her husband of infidelity. At about midnight on the day of the murder the accused followed him to a nearby house. She allegedly broke the door of the house to gain access and found her husband with another woman. During an argument that ensued between those present the deceased was allegedly stabbed with a sharp object. She said the Police and emergency personnel were called where they arrested the woman. The man was certified dead on the scene.

Stolen earthmoving machinery found

Information received from the community led Police to recovering two stolen earthmoving machines worth R2 million outside Groblersdal and in Gauteng respectively. Provincial Police Spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe indicated that Police followed up on leads to Ga-Moganyaka village outside Groblersdal where the one machine was found apparently abandoned. Further investigation led Police to Gauteng where the second machine was traced. When the Police arrived the suspects made a run for it. Ngoepe added that investigations are continuing and arrests are expected to be made soon.

LTA puts spotlight on culture, heritage >> ‘Created awareness of the possibilities and prospects offered by South Africa’s northernmost province >> ‘Potential to reduce poverty by creating job opportunities in the industry’ HERBERT RACHUENE >>herbert.observer@gmail. com

L

oughly aware of the possibilities and prospects offered by South Africa’s northernmost province. Nmasontho Ndlovu, Chief Executive Officer of LTA reportedly said they chose to highlight the province’s heritage and culture was motivated by its vast offering of wildlife, scenic beauty and diversity of people. “We showcased and highlighted heritage and culture with cultural experiences that can be enjoyed by visitors to our province. We encouraged our tourism products in the province to take advantage of the Indaba to make business that will bring lots of tourists to the province.” Ndlovu continued to say that an influx of tourists will create more job opportunities and thus help reduce poverty. “Tourism is a very reliable and resilient sector but it requires patience,” she said.

Coca-Cola warns public of recruitment scam ENDY SENYATSI >>endy@observer.co.za Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa (CCBSA) warns Limpopo citizens of a recent recruitment scam where fraudsters request a sum of money in exchange for jobs. It was reported that the company was made aware that individuals claiming to be representatives of the company are conveying fraudulent offers of employment in exchange for payment. The offers come from unauthorised

individuals fraudulently recruiting on CCBSA’s behalf or claiming to work for or be associated with the company, the statement read. These activities are not authorised by nor linked in any way to CCBSA or any of its entities and such activities must therefore be regarded as criminal and unlawful and should be reported accordingly, it was reported. The company went on to say: “It must be emphasised that neither CCBSA nor any of its entities would ever ask for upfront fees or payment before, during and/or after the

recruitment process. Job seekers are advised not to be attracted or lured by any communication which solicits payment.” CCBSA is currently investigating all the claims received in this regard and assures the public that they will work with relevant authorities to bring perpetrators to book. Residents are further urged to contact CCBSA on 0800 005 174 to confirm whether the offer is legitimate if they are in doubt or suspicious about offers of employment they have received.

Sharing good service experiences

In response to Polokwane Observer’s request for our readers to inform us of any experience of service worthy of mention, we received the following note from At and Elise Coetzee. “There is a sales lady working at Polokwane Toyota by the name of Vera (Eybers). We found her to be an exceptional, out of the ordinary sales lady. We first got to know her when we were shopping around for a new vehicle. We did eventually buy a second-hand Rav 4 in Pretoria. We took the car to Toyota Polokwane for a service and was again impressed by Vera’s helpful attitude. “The effort she went to to transfer the extended service onto our names, calling the previous owner and emailing the relevant forms to him was far and beyond what is expected of her as an employee. If the service we received from Vera could be transferred to most companies or businesses in Polokwane it would result in ecstatic clientele. Thank you Vera, we were so impressed by you.”

Earth Day educates young warriors HERBERT RACHUENE >>herbert.observer@gmail.com Littering, water conservation and recycling were among the topics dealt with on Friday when the Grade R learners of Pietersburg English Medium Primary School (Pemps) celebrated Earth Day. Karen Adlem, principal, believes one of the best ways to contribute towards a healthy planet in is to teach children about the importance of recycling. “This way they will grow with an appreciation of recycling.

leaders and ambassadors of our environment. We also want them to teach their parents about littering because presently they are the culprits,” Adlem said. On the day the learners collected waste material around the school precinct using their own recycling bags they brought from their homes. “They personally deposited waste in bins and bags and sent them to a local recycling waste company. We want to make recycling fun because it is another small way to make a big impact on the environment. We want them to practise this at home and make their parents feel guilty because they are the ones who are always littering,” concluded Adlem. Earth Day is celebrated annually on 22 April and aims to encourage people across the world to live more environmentally friendly.

Kyk uit vir verwaarlosing onder kinders, meld onverwyld aan KAREN VENTER >>karen@observer.co.za

I

n die lig van Kinderbeskermingsweek wat landwyd van 27 Mei tot 3 Junie plaasvind is die SAVF Polokwane se Kinder- en gesinsorgafdeling besig met ‘n bewusmakingsveldtog. Sonja White, SAVF Polokwane kinder- en gesinsorgdienste se maatskaplike werker sê verwaarlosing is ‘n vorm van mishandeling en dit is belangrik dat enige persoon wat met kinders werk genoegsame kennis het. Volgens haar vind verwaarlosing plaas wan-

neer ‘n ouer of versorger voortdurend nalaat om die basiese fisiese, emosionele, opvoedkundige, sosiale, psigiese en emosionele behoeftes van ‘n kind te vervul. “Verwaarlosing veroorsaak dat ‘n kind nie oor die vermoë beskik om die eise van die lewe te hanteer nie en laat hoofsaaklik ‘n gevoel van waardeloosheid by die kind omdat hy nie veilig voel nie,” sê sy. Dit is gewoonlik ooglopend dat ‘n kind fisies verwaarloos word as hy vuil is, gereeld koud kry omdat hy nie warm klere het nie, sy klere gereeld te groot, te klein of vuil is, kos steel en nie

PUBLIC NOTICE POLOKWANE MUNICIPALITY PUBLIC NOTICE CALLING FOR INSPECTION OF THE FIFTH SUPPLEMENTARY VALUATION ROLL AND LODGING OF OBJECTIONS FOR THE PERIOD OF 23 MAY 2018 TO 25 JUNE 2018 Notice is hereby given in terms of Section 49 (l)(a)(i) read together with section 78(2) of the Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Act, 2004 (Act No. 6 of 2004), hereinafter referred to as the “Act”, that the fifth supplementary valuation roll for the 2014/2018 financial years will be open for public inspection at the Municipal Offices, cnr Landdros Mare & Bodenstein streets Polokwane, as well as the Municipality’s website www.polokwane.gov.za from 23 May 2018 to 25 June 2018. An invitation is hereby issued in terms of section 49(l)(a)(ii) read together with section 78(2) of the Act that any owner of property or other person who so desires should lodge an objection with the Municipal Manager in respect of any matter reflected in, or omitted from, the supplementary valuation roll within the above-mentioned period. Attention is specifically drawn to the fact that in terms of section 50(2) of the Act an objection must be in relation to a specific individual property and not against the valuation roll as such.

kos in sy tas by die skool het nie of gereeld vir kos vra en beserings as gevolg van onvoorsiene ongelukke het. Ander vorms van verwaarlosing sluit ongereelde skoolbywoning, gereelde gedragsprobleme, hartseer, woede, geen maatjies nie en angstigheid in. Wanneer grense of reëls inkonsekwent of afwesig is, voel ‘n kind onveilig. Ook as die kind gereeld sonder toesig of onvoldoende toesig gelaat word soos byvoorbeeld in die sorg van ʼn jong boetie of sussie wat self sorg nodig het. Gevolge van verwaarlosing Volgens White sluit dit die volgende in: Die jonger kind vertoon gebrekkige groei ten opsigte van gewig en lengte, het sit-, loop-, kruip- praat- en ontwikkelingsagterstande. Vel en hare is in ‘n swak toestand, soek aanhoudend aandag of het emosionele uitbarstings en voortdurende infeksies. Skoolgaande kinders vorder skolasties baie swak, is aggressief of isoleer hulself en toon emosionele, sosiale en gedragsprobleme, ondervind probleme om hul beurt af te wag en boelie

of word geboelie. Tieners het geen of min selfvertroue, vertoon toenemende risikogedrag byvoorbeeld die misbruik van substanse, isoleer hulself sosiaal en ervaar probleme binne hul portuurgroep. “Van die ernstiger langtermyngevolge van verwaarlosing is selfmoord, geestessiektes, beserings wat die persoon homself toedien en antisosiale gedrag. Wanneer jy enige kommer oor die veiligheid en welstand van ‘n kind het, kontak ‘n welsynorganisasie naby jou of een van die organisasies se nasionale kantore,” sê White.

Huge linen donation to Centenary House KAREN VENTER >>karen@observer.co.za Residents and management of Centenary House in Polokwane, run by the Association for Persons with Disability (APD) Limpopo, were ecstatic when a private hospital donated what seemed like a mountain of linen to the home on Monday. According to Lawrence Mkhombo, key stakeholder manager at the hospital, this was the third such donation in the past few weeks. “We

also donated linen to the SPCA Polokwane and Reakgona Adult Centre in Seshego,” he said. He explained that as a private hospital, it was essential to ensure that items such as linen are replaced regularly. “Although this linen is used, it is still in very good condition and we just didn’t have the heart to throw it out,” he explained. Christa van der Walt, director of APD Limpopo, expressed her gratitude and said the linen would be extremely useful and would also be utilised during outreach programmes.

The prescribed forms for the lodging of an objections are obtainable at the following municipal offices: Civic Centre, Rates Hall (Polokwane), Seshego, Mankweng, Sebayeng and Aganang or on the website www.polokwane.gov.za. The completed forms must be returned to the following address: The Municipal Manager, P.O. Box 111, Polokwane, 0700 or submitted at any of the above-mentioned offices.

The school indicated that about 300 learners participated and had to pay R10 each to wear the clothes.

Attempted-kill-gone-wrong goes viral with 700 000 views >> See video URL on www.observer.co.za PHOTO: YOLANDE NEL

Johann Eloff and Hannes Joubert share the video clip that has gone viral.

YOLANDE NEL >>observer.yolande@gmail.com

G

oing viral with close to 700 000 views within a week of a wildlife video being posted on the internet was not what local amateur photographers and nature lovers Hannes Joubert and Johann Eloff anticipated when capturing an attempted kill in Kruger National Park over the past long weekend. They merely intended to share Joubert's video of a blue wildebeest getting the better of two lionesses, who tried to bring the bull down after an hour of stalking and the one being injured during that late Monday afternoon drive in the park, with the world. With the clip posted last Tuesday and currently averaging around 5 000 hits an hour, it had already had 668 822 views by Tuesday morning. The clip has seemingly been popular among internet users in South Africa, Europe,

America and India and is still climbing in popularity as it has apparently catapulted to the most watched on the website it was initially posted to. In the meantime the clip had been secured by the likes of worldwide publications such as National Geographic and Daily Mail in the United Kingdom, said Joubert. The scene of two lionesses attacking the fiercely fighting antelope that managed to shake off two adamant felines within little over two minutes as it injured the one cat by locking its horns into her side, was filmed by Joubert. All along Eloff was taking an estimated 50 still photos with a recently acquired 70 – 500 mm lens he was still putting to the test. Already witnessing the incident was a fluke as it was the second kill of the day they had come across as a pride of eleven lions taking down a blue wildebeest bull on the way back from Olifants Camp late that same morning, they remarked. Joubert elaborated by explaining that they had returned to Satara Camp, where they stayed over, when happening upon the unfolding scene of the pack of lions closing in on one of two blue wildebeest bulls. They couldn't manage to get proper shots and returned to camp with the intention to return to the spot late afternoon in the hope of getting photos of the aftermath of feasting lions The late afternoon attempted-kill-gonewrong occurred some 25 km from camp when they noticed five vehicles parked along the road, the occupants observing two lionesses having two respective blue wildebeest bulls in sight, they added. Only about an hour later they had closed in on the second blue wildebeest bull while he was frolicking in the dust distance away, according to Joubert. The next moment both lionesses simultaneously pounced. “It was the cherry on the cake to have been able to videograph something like that,” declared Joubert. Eloff emphasised that it was good fortune witnessing two such extraordinary occurrences in nature within one day, as one might visit Kruger National Park without getting to witness such a scene. But their story has a twist in the tale, he excitedly explained as he mentioned a close shave with a herd of elephant early the previous afternoon when they had found themselves on a narrow enclosed gravel stretch where they stumbled upon the grazing mammals. They recalled a youngster in the herd immediately starting to trumpet, which caused the rest of the herd to storm their bakkie from the front. As more elephant were approaching from a river to one side of the road Joubert, who usually takes the wheel to give Eloff ample opportunity to capture photos on a drive, swiftly reacted by reversing the vehicle out of the danger zone. When going through their archived collection of thousands of images and clips mostly of bush scenes, it is evident that their love for nature finds a strong footing in a shared interest in photography and the varied media they are inspired by. They expressed the belief that their personalities were being displayed in their photography. Whereas Eloff appreciates still photography, Joubert has a penchant for action and movement. Joubert stressed the emotional experience attached to wildlife photography that was often characterised by seeing animals getting killed. “You want it to happen in order to get the best shot, but when it does it remains a shock because you wouldn't want to watch something die.” Having been caravanners for the past year they are regular visitors to Kruger National Park and, as Eloff put it, they knew that one had to adopt a different rhythm upon entering that environment. To this Joubert added that one couldn't be in a hurry when on such an excursion. As they revisited their all time favourite photos of two male lions on patrol against the backdrop of the African bush and one of a cheetah kill showing the Lebombo Mountains in the background, they expressed the wish to see their photos in a book that would likely centre around the Kruger one day.

contain their excitement last Wednesday when the team from I'm Special, a motivational group from Johannesburg, visited the centre to remind them that every child is special and a gift from God. The theme of the talk was 'Respect' and it was written by award winning TV, film and stage actress Nazli George who is known for her appearances in titles which include Swartwater, Dryfsand, Andries Plak and Hoofmeisie. She is also the author of various award winning shows and took her life skills to schools all over the country for the last 17 years. The presenta-

tion was made by I’m Special team members Valentino Brandt and Lucinda Scholtz and according to Ina Buys, Deputy Principal of Stepping Stones Early Learning Centre, the show was presented at the level of the toddlers and it reminded them that they should learn to respect themselves and others. “The show was really relevant and spoke about the bullying, the violence and the abuse at our schools where some learners don’t have respect for educators, themselves, their parents and others. Respect begins with ourselves, so let us all make the difference,” Buys said.

HERBERT RACHUENE >>herbert.observer@ gmail.com A joyous atmosphere prevailed at Mitchell House on Saturday when it was time to celebrate Africa Day. Organised by the Parents’ Association of the school, Mitchell House’s learners and guests celebrated Africa Month by hosting Africa Day, a fun-filled family day hosted by the Intermediate Phase. The whole project formed part of an integrated learning experience for the learners, and they were very excited to show off their new knowledge. Each class in the phase represented a different African country, randomly selected during assembly. The two Grade 4 classes got Ethiopia and Egypt, the Grade 5s Mauritius and Cameroon, Grade 6 Uganda and Ghana and the Grade 7s Mozambique and Senegal. The learners and educators sported beautiful

They performed cultural dances, poems and drama as part of the entertainment programme to commemorate the day. According to Achsah Phoshoko, Mitchell House Director of Marketing, the event was aimed at raising awareness about Africa Month. “It was a beautiful day with family and friends. Everyone enjoyed the festivities and I would like to thank every person who was involved in the planning and implementation process, and those who came to support us,” she said. Africa Day is the annual commemoration of the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity, now known as the African Union, on May 25, 1963. It is celebrated in various countries on the African continent, as well as around the world.

Drienie van Wyk, VOHF-voorsitter en Petro du Preez, Pietersburg Helpgroep werk nou saam om minderbevoorregtes te help.

rienie van Wyk en Petro du Preez sorg nie net dat sowat 130 gesinne (1 311 persone) maandeliks gevoed en geklee word nie, maar bly deurgaans deel van die gesinne deur emosionele ondersteuning en hulp op verskeie ander vlakke ook te bied. Die uitdagings raak ook elke jaar groter omdat die aantal hulpbehoewendes jaarliks styg. In 2016 is 283 mense met kos, klere en ander benodigdhede voorsien en in 2017 is 617 gehelp. Tot op hede vanjaar is 1 311 gehelp en die syfer styg weekliks. “Ons is God se hande- en voetehulp op aarde sonder wie ons niks kan doen nie,” is die motivering vir hul gemeenskapswerk. Van Wyk, tans voorsitter van Vision of Hope Foundation (VOHF) Polokwane, is die afgelope vyf jaar deel van die niewinsgewende organisasie wat minderbevoorregtes help en hoofsaaklik by drie skuilings en twee

ouetehuise in die stad betrokke is. Du Preez is die afgelope ses jaar aan die stuur van Pietersburg Helpgroep, ‘n facebookgroep wat minderbevoorregte gesinne help. Beide maak op skenkings van die publiek, besighede en ander privaatinstansies staat, hanteer hul eie insamelings en bestuur hul eie hulpgroepe, maar help mekaar onderling met voorraad en deel as hulle baie van ‘n spesifieke kossoort het. “Ons kommunikeer voortdurend met mekaar oor diegene wat ons help want daar is altyd mense wat kanse vat en probeer om kos en lewensmiddele uit ons albei te kry. Ons loop ‘n reguit, eerlike pad en verwag dit van dié wat ons help. Hul mag ook nie drank of dwelms gebruik nie,” sê Van Wyk. Du Preez doen telkens huisinspeksie om haar van die omstandighede van die gesinne te vergewis en seker te maak dat hulle hulp nodig het. “Ek vra ook vir ‘n inkomste- en uitgawelys en dokumentasie soos betaalstate om die volle prentjie te kry.”

Hulle voorsien meer as net kos en klere. “Ons word later ‘n lid van elke familie en help werk soek, neem hulle na onderhoude, neem babas kliniek toe vir inentings of gesels en luister net,” sê albei wat deur beraders en ‘n pastoor bygestaan word omdat van die verhale hartverskeurend en ontstellend is. Hulle families ondersteun hulle heelhartig. Van Wyk se man, Charles, is die voorsitter van een van die skuilings waar hul albei betrokke is. Selfs die kleinkinders spring in en help tydens vakansies en naweke. “Dis belangrik dat hulle weet hoe ander swaarkry en besef hoe gelukkig hulle is,” sê Du Preez. Hulle bedank almal vir hulp, borgskappe en donasies en doen ‘n verdere beroep op hulp met veral blikkieskos omdat baie persone of gesinne nie yskaste het nie. Komberse word benodig met die komende winter. Skakel Van Wyk by 083 495 3959 en Du Preez by 078 453 1433 vir meer inligting of hulp.

Views Government housing a failure/ Regeringsbehuising ‘n mislukking Following Polokwane Observer’s report last week that provincial government has failed to deliver a single social housing unit of a five-year target, residents gave their opinions on the matter. Nadat Polokwane Observer verlede week gerapporteer het dat die provinsiale regering nog geen sosiale behuising in ‘n vyfjaarteiken gelewer het nie, het inwoners hulle menings gelig.

Malehlogonolo Nkadimeng: “Government should just allocate funds for housing because people really need houses.”

Henry Rodgers: “Mense het ‘n reg om ‘n dak oor hulle koppe te hê en die regering het nie ‘n saak daarmee nie.”

Adri Bronkhorst: “Die provinsiale regering moet die mense wie se skuld dit is kennis gee en iemand kry wat sal sorg dat dit gedoen word.”

Aifheli Lusunzi: “The government should meet with the affected parties and find solutions.”

Kamo Mabelebele: “There is a need to introduce a communist government with equal distribution of wealth among all. This might not be easy but in the long run it will be worth it.”

Melody Delport: “Dis skokkend. Winter is op pad. Waar gaan die mense bly?”

Elsa Moulder: “Dit is baie sleg want duisende mense het geen behuising nie. Dit mag nie weer gebeur nie.”

721 social workers without jobs, department denies responsibility ENDY SENYATSI >>endy@observer.co.za

A

n increasing number of unemployed social workers across the province is a major concern of the Department of Social Development. This issue was raised when MEC Mapula Mokaba-Phukwana handed over vehicles and laptops to employees of the department in the Capricorn district during a ceremony at Polokwane Welfare Complex on Monday. It was reported that to date, the department has trained 2 155 social workers and absorbed 1 112. Some 721 social workers are without jobs while 211 are on an internship programme funded by the Department of Health and Welfare Seta and 180 are on contract with the Department of Education. She said the department equipped social workers with relevant skills but it is not the department’s responsibility to absorb all of them upon completion of their studies. She added that social work graduates should use the skills and knowledge acquired to seek employment both in the public and private sector. Mokaba-Phukwana indicated that the department gives aspiring social workers bursaries to further their studies but the department cannot take full responsibility when graduates seek employment. “We

handed over 118 computers and four vehicles where she will hand over 100 computers and are not pushing social workers away but the followed by Sekhukhune district last Thursday two vehicles while 138 computers and two truth is that we cannot employ all of them. We where she provided 118 computers and two ve- vehicles will be handed over to employees acknowledge the challenge; that is why we are hicles. Mokaba-Phukwana’s next stop will be at at the Thohoyandou district office, Vhembe planning to have a summit in the future for us the Modimolle district offices, Waterberg district district on 28 May. to have a plan on how we are going to deploy social workers. We encourage people to study but we need a plan to absorb graduates,” she stated. She indicated that lack of proper infrastructure and tools were also a challenge and reiterated that such issues are addressed gradually. Mokaba-Phukwana said the department was still new because it was formerly part of the Health Department hence they were still trying to be independent. She urged employees to sacrifice and use the little resources they have to render services to the people of Limpopo. When handing over 126 computers and two vehicles to officials in the Capricorn district, Mokaba-Phukwana said she was happy to engage with employees to learn more about their troubles in the workplace and added that the concerns raised will assist the department to improve where necessary. The engagement sessions are part of her province-wide employee engagement road shows which aim to provide officials in all the five districts with the tools of the trade.

DA ready to claim key provinces in 2019 YOLANDE NEL >>observer.yolande@gmail.com A future of governing coalitions, land expropriation without compensation and the Democratic Alliance’s (DA) preparedness to secure majority votes in key provinces during next year’s elections came up when the party’s Deputy Federal Chairperson and national spokesperson, Refiloe Nt’sekhe discussed politics during a visit to Polokwane last week. Nt’sekhe was in the province on Thursday for an evening radio debate on the controversial land issue which, she said, would have afforded the DA an opportunity to also express their position on matters. The visit also gave her the chance to catch up with matters in the province. In an interview with Polokwane Observer she was requested to, among others, address coalitions and to the question remarked that coalitions were not going to be easy and was always going to be difficult, particularly where one had differences of ideology. Even in ModimolleMookgophong Municipality in Limpopo it was a very difficult coalition as was the case across the board, she reiterated. She used the example of motions against Nelson Mandela Bay Metro mayor Athol Trollip having been tabled for media attention and continued to say the same hadn’t happened in the other metros or in ModimolleMookgophong Municipality where the DA governed though. They had to be realistic about the

future and knew that going into 2019 they were looking at more coalition governments as much as they might intend to go out and try to win it all, she opined. Nt’sekhe predicted that realistically looking at the landscape they would probably be in more coalitions, PHOTO: YOLANDE NEL but more difficult Refiloe Nt’sekhe. arrangements. Preparations for the elections of next year and the take-over the DA had in mind were up for discussion next, to which she said they were going into very difficult terrain. She continued to add that the land issue has raised a very difficult issue for them, because the most important thing was people understanding the offer they had to put on the table around land and the successes they have had around land in the Western Cape where they governed, as well as Johannesburg. The African National Congress (ANC) has never been able to meet the obligation around land nationally, she remarked. She quoted statistics of a 60% DA success rate on the national average in terms of land redistribution against all ANC governments together being at 10%. Even with regards to land redistribution in terms of title deeds they have far exceeded any ANC government on a year-on-year comparison, it was reiterated. Going into the elections another issue requiring attention was people’s concern about safety and jobs, she remarked when saying that she didn’t think the President realised what a risk it was to announce the implementation of minimum wages, adding that already the country was on the verge of the loss of 700 000 jobs in the labour sector because of minimum wages. Addressing the key issues they needed to deal with, she stressd the DA was reviewing their policies to ensure that when putting their manifestos together they gave South Africans a compelling offer to say why they wanted to vote for the DA. Nt’sekhe was convinced that South Africa was going to see a DA that was 100% ready for a take-over and give people what they promised. With the elections in mind they were targeting key provinces, being the Western Cape, Gauteng, Northern Cape and now also considering North West, according to Nt’sekhe. The upcoming elections were probably as important as the 1994 elections, she mentioned. “We honestly believe you can’t continue to have an ANC government if you want to improve South Africa.”

Gay march momentarily diverts attention from challenges >> More photos on www.observer.co.za

ibrant colours and pastel pinks mixed with ball gowns and tutus when members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community in Polokwane took to a march through the streets of the city on Saturday morning. Momentarily they diverted attention from challenges such as corrective rape and cultural and religious stigma that men and women of alternative gender orientation get subjected to. Saturday’s march was part of the annual Limpopo Pride programme that created opportunity for, among others, a show of support by structures such as the Democratic Alliance (DA), the University of Limpopo and the Anova’s Health4Men initiative when participants later gathered in the park at Jack Botes hall. Speaking to Polokwane Observer afterwards, LGBTI sector Limpopo Chairperson Cindy Maotoana stressed the lack of support for their programme, adding that organisations who gained from their presence in the province were not in attendance. Whereas they had intended to incorporate dialogue into the day’s programme which they initially planned to host at Jack Botes hall, they couldn’t do so as the daily rental was too expensive, she remarked. She raised the opinion that the municipality’s approach to rental of the

facility was seen as not being communityfriendly. Turning to the issue of the onslaught against their members, she alluded to more homosexual men in Limpopo getting attacked and raped than lesbian women. The biggest problem in Polokwane posed to be a dark spot along Dahl Street adjacent to the cemetery where two to three homosexual men got raped every weekend. Some didn’t report the cases, she said. In the crowd placards with slogans like “Killing us won’t make us heterosexual” promoted their grounds. Another critical challenge their members faced was being disowned for their orientation and being shunned because of cultural and religious reasons, she said. In many instances parents withheld school fees or took kids out of school for their choices, Maotoana added. Prior to joining the march DA Women’s Network (Dawn) leader Nomafrench Mbombo, who was in Limpopo for the day to join the parade as she did elsewhere in the country, in a brief inter-

31

view said that after two decades of democracy there were still people discriminated against based on their sexual orientation and yet the Constitution was so clear on every right of every citizen. It was not on that people got subjected to corrective rape for their sexual orientation and families disowning their children because of love, she indicated. It was everyone’s choice to be who he or she wanted to be, she stressed as she highlighted support for the cause and creating awareness that LGBTI rights were human rights. Mbombo, who is also Health MEC in the Western Cape, was accompanied by Dawn Provincial Chairperson and Parliamentarian Desiree van der Walt and DA Provincial Legislature Member Katlego Phala.

are taught to live and recognise each other as family without strictly confining to blood line or family trees. We are one big family,” she said. She stressed the importance of having healthy and happy relationships with one another. “Families are the core of society, children are born into them and some of the most important developing years of their lives are spent within families.” Mokaba-Phukwana concluded by saying they would like to encourage everyone to play a meaningful role in harnessing and strengthening families. “After all is said and done, it is our families that we must always find and give comfort and love.” The SAVF can be contacted on 012 325 3920, Child Welfare on 011 452 4110 or Childline on 0800 055 055. Any of these will be able to refer families to their nearest organisation, she concluded.

Modern families have unique challenges that families in other times did not have including HIV/Aids, unemployment, drug and alcohol abuse, only one parent or a child-headed family, or even a grandparent bringing up grandchildren. This was the focus on International Day of Families, which was on Tuesday. According to Sonja White, social worker with SAVF Polokwane child and family welfare services there is, however, help available for such families. “There are several organisations equipped to provide assistance in this regard,” she said. Promoting awareness of issues relating to families and increasing knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting them is what International Day of Families is all about, according to the Department of Social Development. The department plans to officially commemorate this day together with the launch of Child Protection Week, which starts on 28 May. However, according to department spokesperson, Joel Seabi, activities around the building and supporting of families continue all year long in all the five districts of the province focusing on various areas of importance for families. “These include moral regeneration, balancing work and family, dialogues on issues that cause conflicts in families and equipping foster parents with parenting skills,” Seabi said. Social Development MEC Mapula Mokaba-Phukwana said the department recognised the pivotal position of the family unit in society as the foundation for humanitarian values and growth. “It is through the family institution that as human beings we grow and establish PHOTO: SUPPLIED ourselves within communities, nations Being a happy family in modern times is very chaland the broader international communi- lenging, however, the Robberts family, Casper, Cathty.

hosts 4-3 while the second team could celebrate a 4-2 win.

Cycling club reaches out to needy children >> ‘A meaningful contributor to community building’ >> ‘We thank the cyclists who have supported us’ HERBERT RACHUENE >>herbert.observer@gmail.com

P

olokwane-based JoyRide Cycling Club maintains its support for disadvantaged communities. During the latest of their outreaches they visited the Ba-Abele Drop-In Centre in Ga-Phago village, on Saturday to deliver a donation of non-perishable food, vegetables, fruit, blankets and items of clothing. More than 30 members of the club rode the 70 km from Polokwane to Ga-Phago to

practically demonstrate support to the needy children in the area. Chairperson Shaun Ramahlodi said their support of the centre will not be a once-off activity but a sustainable one. “We were here last year around this time and we also did the same at Bana Ba Thari Special School last year. We will continue with such initiatives,” Ramahlodi said. He added that, beyond seeing cycling as recreational and sport, the club sees it as a meaningful contributor to community building. “We have committed ourselves to making sure that the community here in Moletjie gets this facility fenced, structures put in place and have its own life beyond what they currently have. We have used various partners who made donations in addition to individual contributions coming out of our members, hence we were able to put up a fence and establish a vegetable garden,” added Ramahlodi. Ba-Abele Drop-In Centre looks after 97 disadvantaged children and has been in operation

for nine years. It has serviced the Ga-Phago community with distinction, having some of its earlier members now at high school level. Manager of the centre, Sophy Ramagoshi was quoted to have said: "We thank the cyclists who have supported us over the past two years. Today we are in a new place and starting a foundation to build a new structure which we shall completely own and control. We will have a good fence and a vegetable garden coming out of the support we received from Joyride Cycling Club." Ramahlodi believes that the cyclists are capable of raising awareness and that the contribution they are making should pave the way for others to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds to rise above their current limitations. He also mentioned that they are currently looking for a charity organisation they can assist in Polokwane and its surrounds.

Former Bafana Bafana player, Tlou Molekwane will stage a one day soccer tournament at Seshego Stadium’s ground B on 16 June so as to give aspiring soccer players a platform to show their talent. This engagement in sport, he believes, will also assist in fighting the social ills prevalent in the area. The Seshego born defender, currently playing for Bloemfontein Celtic Football Club, said there are lots of young boys blessed with immense soccer talent but who have become immersed in social ills and are unable to grow their talent. “Those are the people we are targeting. We want to see them on the field of play, engaged in their favourite sporting code. We believe this initiative can fight the scourge of these social ills. One of the reasons why young people, particularly boys, resort to social ills is that they have given up on their dreams. We want to give them hope, a chance and an opportunity,” Molekwane explained. He said football scouts from prominent soccer teams in the Premier Soccer League have been invited to come and see the talent in Seshego. The scouts will also give motivational talks to participants. “I am doing this because soccer gave me a better life and I want to see every talented soccer player in Seshego and surrounds playing for a professional team and the national soccer team one day. I don’t want to be selfish because I was also helped by people along the way and this is just my way of giving back to the community,’’ added Molekwane. Asked how many teams would take part in the tournament, Molekwane said they were looking at four to eight teams.

Michelle Butler en Liandri Peyper sê hulle het net gewag tot hulle 16de verjaarsdag om bloed te skenk. “Dis ons verantwoordelikheid om ander te help waar ons kan want bloed is ‘n kosbare, lewegewende geskenk.” Die skool se span ‘blood buddies’ was byderhand om te help en leerders wat vir die eerste keer bloed skenk aan te moedig. Hulle motiveer namens die SANBS leerders om skenkers te wees en verleen hulp tydens bloedskenkklinieke. “Dis vir my ‘n voorreg om te help en my medeleerders te probeer oortuig om ook ‘n bydrae te lewer deur bloed te skenk,” sê Abram Sekgobela, een van die ‘blood buddies’.

Polokwane City Football Club defender Thabo Semenya works hard to keep Chippa United, midfielder Abel Mabaso from reaching the ball during their PSL match on Saturday.

Polokwane City Football Club cleared the Premier Soccer League (PSL) relegation bar by a mere two positions and three points when they managed a 1-1 draw against Chippa United Football Club in the last match of the season at the old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday. City started the season well winning their top matches and defeating the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns, picking up crucial points against the mighty Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs but faltering along the way. They managed to amass 34 points from 30 matches of the league winning six matches, drawing 16 and losing eight to finish the season in 13th position.

Head coach Bernard Molekwa said they have already put the bad season behind them and will now focus on the new season. “We did not have the best season at all but we will get better next season. We were in the relegation zone most of the time and it was stressful and hard for us. We are happy to have avoided relegation. We promise our fans that we will double our efforts next season and compete for top honours in the league. We are aware of the journey ahead, it is not going to be easy but we will be prepared for it,” Molekwa said. He also mentioned that they will be going to the market to strengthen the team ahead of new season. “We definitely need to refresh the team so we will go all out to scout for new talent during the break,” he concluded.

Kobola receives chairman’s award HERBERT RACHUENE >>herbert.observer@gmail.com One of Polokwane’s own, Phaladi Kobola who currently plays for Cape Town City Football Club was bestowed with the Club Chairman’s Award during the club’s annual end-of-season award function. A statement issued by the club explained that Kobola was rewarded for his exemplary service and loyalty to the club over the past seasons. An alumnus of Flora Park Comprehensive High School, Kobola joined the club from the University of Pretoria Football Club in the 2012/13 Premier Soccer League season and has won many accolades with the club. He was part of the team that won the Telkom Knockout Final in 2016.

The 32-year-old who is known for his hard tackling abilities reportedly said the award came as a total surprise. “I am honoured and deeply moved by the gesture. This serves as special motivation to me because not many players have been bestowed with this kind of an award,” Kobola said. Former Ria Stars striker, Percy Motloutsi who coached Kobola as member of the former, Seshego based development team, said he was proud of Kobola’s achievement. “He is a leader and has been a committed player from a young age. He was respectful, hardworking and loved everybody. I am not surprised that he received the award. I wish him more success in his football career and may he continue to inspire young soccer players in the province and in his hometown, Seshego,” Motloutsi commented.

Sports club needs assistance to produce professional athletes ENDY SENYATSI >>endy@observer.co.za The desire to keep children from the streets and encourage them to adopt a healthy lifestyle, motivated Chupyana Raphasha to establish a sports club named Molotong Tigers in Ga-Ramokgopa village, Botlokwa where at least 30 children are being catered for at the moment. Raphasha said the idea came when he noticed that children in the village had nothing to keep them busy on weekends and after school. Local children aged 12 to 21 are engaged in netball and soccer. Raphasha said a lot of children participate in criminal activities and he believes that the club will help minimise such happenings in the community and encourage children to focus on their studies

and careers. Molotong Tigers is in need of assistance to acquire sports equipment to enhance athletes’ performance.

Jong rugbyspeler Dustin Terblanche droom groot >> Wil professionele rugby speel of vlieënier word >> ‘Wees jouself, moenie oordeel of dink jy is beter as ander’ KAREN VENTER >>karen@observer.co.za RC MYBURGH >>rc.observer@gmail.com

anneer die 12-jarige Dustin Terblanche op die rugbyveld draf is daar net een ding wat vir dié talentvolle skrumskakel saak maak – om die bal so vinnig moontlik by die agterlyn te kry. Sy befaamde duikuitgooi is al welbekend onder spelers en sy vermoë om ‘n gaping om die skrum of losgemaal te skep en agterlyn toe te voer spreek van vernuf. Die rugbymal en toegewyde graad 6-leerder van Pietersburg Laerskool maak vinnig naam en is vir die afgelope drie jaar as sy span se Agterspeler van die Jaar aangewys en boonop vanjaar die enigste tweedespanspeler wat tydens die onlangse Bokkieweekproewe in Mookgophong vir die o.13A-Verre Noordspan gekies is.

Die Bokkieweek vind van 2 tot 6 Julie in Mookgophong plaas waar Dustin hoop om raakgesien te word en volgende jaar vir die Limpopo- of Cravenweekspan oorweeg te word. “Aanhouer wen en ander leerders wat vir ‘n tweedespan speel en voel dat hulle nie goed genoeg is nie, moet nie moed verloor nie. Daar is ‘n beperkte hoeveelheid spelers in ‘n eerstespan en dit beteken nie noodwendig hulle is beter as jy nie. Met harde werk en gereelde oefening kan jy jou drome verwesenlik. Almal het unieke talente wat eendag raakgesien sal word en een na die ander deure vir jou op die regte tyd sal oopmaak,” meen Dustin wat hoop om eendag oorsee professionele rugby te speel. Hy oefen drie keer ‘n week saam met sy skoolspan onder leiding van afrigter Jacques Bartlett. “Ek sien uit daarna om saam met die Bokkieweekspan te oefen want dit sal lekker wees om saam met ander spelers te speel en te ervaar hoe hulle ook rugby geniet.” Intussen spandeer hy elke spaaroomblik met sy rugbybal al is dit net om bal saam met sy honde te skop. ‘n Goeie skrumskakel is volgens hom ‘n speler wat vinnig besluite kan neem – soos om die bal agterlyn toe te speel of om self verby die skrum te probeer veld wen. “‘n Skrumskakel se besluit verander die spelpatroon en spanmaats moet vinnig op sy besluit kan reageer.” Dustin hou ook baie van atletiek en krieket en beplan om sokker te begin

speel. Hy speel graag skaak, hou van sing en het twee jaar gelede by die Bosveldkunstefees ‘n A+++-sertifikaat vir poësie verwerf. Wiskunde is sy gunstelingvak. “As ek nie oorsee professionele rugby kan speel nie wil ek graag ‘n vlieënier word,” sê Dustin. Curwin Bosch, Cell CSharkspeler, en Patrick Lambie, Springbokspeler is sy rolmodelle omdat dié twee volgens hom uitstekende rugby speel en hy graag in hul voetspore wil volg. Hy geniet Vin Dieselrolprente, eet graag pizza en is ‘n Imagine Dragon-aanhanger. FOTO: KAREN Sy beste eienVENTER skappe volgens hom is Dustin Terdat hy vriendelik is en blanche, maklik maats maak.
