Mervyn Dirks denies defection claims
ormer Msunduzi Deputy Mayor Mervyn Dirks (pictured) has vowed to take tougher action against a local newspaper for publishing what he regards as incorrect information about him. Dirks’ utterances come in the wake of a report which claimed that he was on the verge of joining the Democratic Alliance (DA). “I am furious at what was
printed in that article. The Galaxy newspaper ran the article about me without even speaking to me,” said Dirks, adding that he planned on lodging a complaint with the Press Ombudsman. The former Deputy Mayor further indicated that he would consider other options in dealing with the newspaper. He has distanced himself from all allegations saying he was ‘furious’ and ‘there was no truth in the Galaxy article’. The article stated that the Galaxy was ‘the first to break the news’, headlining their newspaper, ‘Former ANC Deputy Mayor Dirks to join DA’. The article stated that the news was ‘no
longer kept under the belt’. The report went on to say that not all DA councillors were happy with Dirks moving to the DA and that many councillors blamed Mergen Chetty, who also moved from the ANC to the DA, for spearheading Dirks’ move. “The DA councillors are not all keen on accepting Dirks into the party given his link with the past council that ran the city close to bankruptcy. It is however alleged that one faction within the DA is keen…they believe it will b a scoop for the party to have a former ANC deputy within the DA,” stated the article. The Galaxy article stated that
Chetty unpopular amongst his DA councillors but is seen as an ‘opportunist who hogged the executive seat that was benchmarked for Ward 33 councillor Nalini Atwaru. “I am furious at what was printed in that article. They (Galaxy) ran the article about me without even speaking to me,” said Dirks, adding that he planned on lodging a complaint with the Press Ombudsman. Dirks emphasized that his loyalties lay with the ANC, “I am a loyal cadre of the ANC,” he said.
Pay your fines or go to court, says Traffic Department
otorists travelling along Bambatha Road (New Greytown Road) where Prilla Mills is situated are up in arms over speeding fines they received since last year with some refusing to pay claiming there are no speed limit signs erected. The municipality however has warned motorists to either pay up or answer in court. Public Eye received several telephone calls, emails and letters from upset motorists claiming that they were not properly informed of the speed limit on the road leading to and from Allandale Drive. A motorist who did not wish to be named and confirmed to receiving a fine, told Public Eye that he was shocked to find out from the a member of the Msunduzi Traffic Department that the fines issued were indeed illegal. “I was told in the strictest confidence
that the trap was indeed illegal and they only discovered it after a motorist pointed it out to them. By then the fines were already posted and to avoid any egg on their faces they have decided to remain silent and let us poor fools pay for an illegal speed trap,” he said. “I have recently received two fines of R200 each in that area. According to the charge, I was driving 72 km/h in a 60km zone. There are no boards informing motorists when they turn from Allandale Drive going towards Prilla Mills. Is this fair?”
asked one complainant who wrote in to Public Eye. Another motorist said that he refuses to pay his fine received outside Prilla Mills as he believes the fines were issued illegally. However senior city official Kwenza Khumalo said signs were put up but that they may have been defaced or knocked down. He said motorists should know the speed limit.
ists will do anything to avoid paying their fines. They always look for excuses,” he said adding that motorists are still liable to
pay their fines or opt to appear in court.
“Those motorists must call us and tell us if there are no signs there. Come rain or shine, motor-

Msunduzi and district in spat over games
Mgungundlovu municipality has come in for a lashing from one of its local municipality’s, after it was reported that it failed to book adequate accommodation for athletes participating in the annual Salga games. This emerged in a report presented to the Msunduzi Municipality’s Executive Committee meeting (Exco) last week. The report fingered the district for exposing athletes to danger during the games which ran from the 7th to the 10th of December. Msunduzi athletes make up 85% of the district team. The report was compiled by the manager for special projects in the Mayor’s office, Evodia Mahlangu. “Children were booked at Escourt in a boarding house that had a tavern at its entrance and there was no security for all those children,” said Mahlangu. Because of shoddy accommodations arrangements, the report continued, the overall performance of the team declined. “In the previ-
ous year the district came 3rd, but this time it came fourth” she said. District organiser, James Khanyeza , refuted the contents of the report, vowing to take the author of the report to actual lodges where the athletes stayed during the games. He said the report was further from the truth and that the accom-
The report was further from the truth . modation was the best accommodation they could secure in a small town. “This cannot be like eThekwini as there are more sought after establishments,” he said. According to Khanyeza, the contingent for the games included about 400 athletes. He said the Escourt accommodation was also the closest to the nearest grounds. “The sporting grounds were at Ladysmith. So, Estcourt was the nearest town for us to lodge,” he
said. The report further insisted that KwaNaloga Games should not be hosted by smaller districts who do not have the required resources to do so. Khanyeza though said it would not be fair to say that uThukela should not have a right to host the games as they also fall part of the province. Msunduzi hosted the sporting spectacle in 2010 He said that uMgungundlovu shared the base camp with uMkhanyakude. “The reason why we secured accommodation in Estcourt was that we were among first municipalities to book,” he said. Khanyeza said that the poor weather conditions may have contributed to the district’s poor performance. “Regarding poor performance she might have been referring to soccer as it is quite popular. We are still investigating as to why this code is not doing well enough,” he said.

Travel and family time on the cards for retired teacher
teaching career spanning nearly 50 years came to an end as dedicated educator Deviki Govender of Springhaven Primary School in Bombay Heights spent her last days at school last week. Govender, now aged 65, spent 45 years touching hundreds of lives, shaping and sharpening young minds across the province. She taught them how to read, how to write and how to be good human beings. Govender, teaching Grade one’s, two’s and three’s says she owes her life’s success to her parents who through their foresight and sacrifice sent her for further studies. “I will miss the staff, learners, pupils and cleaners as they too have become a part of my life along with all the other schools I taught at. I am going to miss looking forward to public holidays and planning in advance what I am going to do,” laughed Govender.
Her dedication to the teaching profession was best illustrated by the fact that while she had the option of retiring at 60, she opted instead to spend another five years , imparting knowledge to learners. “I could have retired earlier but it was my wish to stay longer. I thank God for blessing me with good health so that I could have achieved this wish,” Govender told Public Eye. In the early days not all parents sent their daughters for further education, but although living in New Hanover, Govender was encouraged to matriculate at
Public Eye February 08, 2013 - Page 8
Girls High School in Pietermaritzburg and attend teacher training college in Springfield. She began teaching at Temple Road Primary School in Durban and spent 11 years in the school before she went on to spend 13 years at Thornville Primary School. By then, Govender married Denny Govender and moved to Pietermaritzburg to teach at Suncrest Primary School where she is more prominently known for teaching. Govender says that although she has only spent two years at
Springhaven Primary School, she will miss the school terribly. “I enjoy travelling and look forward to spend my retirement with my daughter and two sons, my four grandchildren and family members,” she said. Govender imparted with some of her wisdom to all educators still in the profession, “I know that many of us experience stress, frustration and demotivation but be proud of your profession and hang in there. Remember that you are educating and influencing the lives of hundreds of learners who are our future generation.” An avid traveler, Govender is looking forward to sightseeing in Hong Kong, Bangkok and Malaysia to look forward to next month with her husband, Denny.

cial reasons have been thrown a lifeline by the Indian government who are offering 52 fully paid bursaries to study in India. Reaching out to 2012 matriculants, the Consulate General of India is now offering free scholarships to South African learners who are residents of Kwa Zulu Natal, Eastern Cape and the Free State. Once the students are identified, they will jet off to study toward any career, except medicine, in India. The fully paid scholarship includes airfares at the time of joining the university and then after completion of the course. The Director of the Indian Culture Centre at the Consulate of India in Durban, Ms Lesley Jacob said that the scholarship programme is open to all students who have passed matric. “The standard of education in India is truly commendable and extraordinary. While there are many universities in South
Africa that do not have the space to accommodate students who want to study, the universities in India have the facilities available to accommodate these students,” said Jacob. Chosen students can study toward an under graduate course, post graduate course and a doctorate. “I fully recommend that students take full advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity,” added Jacob.

he members of the Isabel Beardmore home in Woodlands were treated with a gift for their garden by the Australian South African Community (ASAC). A group of Australians visited the Isabel Beardmore homes and erected a gazebo in their garden. The gazebo would provide a place for the residents of the home to relax, read, rest or sit with their visitors. The gazebo
was handed over to the committee and residents and a celebration was had by the ASAC members, committee, residents and staff of the Isabel Beardmore home. ASAC is an organisation made up of ex-South Africans now living in Australia who decided to give back to the communities they used to live in, especially catering for the previous generation who are now living in Old Age Homes.
The founders of this group Les and Jackie Isaacs, now living in Perth and a local South African couple, Clive and Ada Lawler have worked together in order to see this dream of assisting the elderly become a reality. A wish list of possible projects that can be undertaken by this group was presented to the ASAC in order to assist the residents of the home.

Mercedes-Benz AMG Day
Day of thunder By James Siddall
Mercedes-Benz AMG - any AMG - is a product to be conjured with. And in case you didn't know, AMG was founded back in 1967 by Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher in Grossaspach, Germany. The name comes from the first letter of their respective surnames, and the first letter of AMG's birthplace. Right now, the range comprises 22 vehicles, ranging from 310kW in output to a hammering 463kW, and while us motoring journalists do often get to experience these machines, in the form of test cars or on launches held on public roads, we seldom get to tap into their power or potential. Motoring writers are accountable for their own traffic fines, while common sense - and in my case
perhaps a bit more maturity than in previous years - dictates some restraint. But on a racetrack it's a different matter. Which is no doubt why Mercedes-Benz recently laid on a cross-section of AMG products, and then let an assortment of car journos loose on Kyalami Racetrack - although we were, of course, accompanied by instructors, who didn't so much nanny us as correct our driving. Some of the cars on hand included a CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake, an SLK 55 AMG, an ML 63 AMG, an SLS AMG and an SLS AMG Roadster (the SLS is the first vehicle developed independently by Mercedes-AMG), an SL 63 AMG and an SL 65 AMG, and a brace of C 63 AMGs. First choice for a couple of hard laps was the SLK 55 AMG. Now I've had one on test before, and on public roads could barely draw on the full 310kW from its barking V8. But on the track it was a different matter, and I was astounded at how lithe this little roadster was, dancing into corners and then ironing out the straights. Far more dramatic yet perhaps not quite as athletic was the SL 65 AMG, with a scarcely believable 450kW and 1000Nm of torque on tap, singing a primeval hammer-song from its
big, turbo-charged, six-litre V12. But the SL I tried ran hot and went into "limp" mode, where power is severely curtailed to spare the engine. Which wasn't terribly surprising considering the mercury was hovering around the 36 degree mark, and that the big Benz had been hammered at the hands of other drivers. The biggest surprise by far was the ML 63 AMG. Now this is essentially a large SUV - yet it cornered with physics-defying deftness, and like all AMG products sounded simply superb, its great turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 pouring out 386kW. It gets better. By the end of 2013 we can look forward to seeing a total of 26 AMG models in the range, with power outputs ranging from 260 kW to 552 kW. Some of these machines will include the upcoming
A 45 AMG, which will be the first time that AMG offers a high-performance car in the compact class. Also expect a GL 63 AMG, while one of the Mercedes highlights at the upcoming Johannesburg International Motor Show will be the very limited SL AMG Black Series. Closer to the end of this year we can expect to see the CLA AMG, too. Of course, AMG hasn't been idle on the racetrack. In the 2013 racing season it will be represented in Formula 1 by the Mercedes AMG Petronas team. Not very surprisingly, the new safety car will be the SLS AMG GT, while the Formula 1 medical car will be the C 63 AMG estate. Days of thunder indeed.

New wave technology at your doorstep
nwanted spots, tattoos and fat that you would like to have removed? Well look no further as we here at Glamorous Aesthetic Skin Clinic now have a wide range of treatments right here at your fingertips with our range of the newest technology. Sunlight, environmental factors and time all contribute to the development of dark spots, pigmentation and sun damage. Your face, hands and chest are the first parts of the body to show signs of ageing because they receive so much sun exposure. Laser machines use wavelengths of heated light which are directly aimed at the spots of pigmentation, targeting the pigmentation without damaging the surrounding tissue. Effectively, this helps to rejuvenate the skin, improving its texture, visibly minimizing pores and reducing superficial fine lines and wrinkles to reveal a more youthfully hydrated appearance. How often can one have therapy for pigmentation? Treatments can be performed as often as every two weeks as the interval between each treatment allows the skin to heal before the next treatment. How many treatments will it take? That will depend on the depth and amount of melanin in the pigment. Does the treatment hurt? Each laser pulse causes heat when it comes into contact with the pigment. This discomfort is more of a mild snapping sensation. Will The Pigmentation Return After The Treatment? With enough treatments the pigment can be completely removed and does not return. Tattoos consist of thousands of particles of tattoo pigment suspended in the skin. Several colors of laser light are used for tattoo removal. Lasers emit a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse that is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles breaking them down into smaller pieces enabling your natural immune defenses to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments. Introducing the latest technology to our slimming range are Lipo Laser Fat Removal, Ultrasonic Liposuction, Radio Frequency Energy And Vaccum Suction. To further enhance the results of your weight loss programme, these above treatments can be combined giving you optimal
results. LIPO LASER is the use of 70 diode laser which is a high intensity light source that targets the fat cells causing them to explode and then be eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system. The ultra sonic liposuction effectively exhausts fatty cells causing them to shrink. Radio frequency energy promotes the dissolving of fatness through the body’s metabolism. Vacuum suction improves the appearance of the “orange peel effect”. It slims and sculpts the body and tightens the skin. Treatment areas include abdomen, thighs, knees, buttocks, hips, back, arms, chin and neck, post baby and past operative fat. These treatments targets full body shaping, eliminates cellulite, dissolves fat pockets and promotes weight loss. So stop wasting time and money on treatments that show no results and pay us a visit and we can work together in sculpting your image to your minds desires.

Strange but true health tips
Use the First Stall
Change Your Name
fter analyzing 51 public restrooms, experts found that the stall closest to the restroom door consistently had the lowest bacteria levels (and the most toilet paper!). The first stall probably sees less traffic because it’s near the door and people want privacy. And when you’re finished, stand before you flush. When toilets are flushed, a fine mist of water containing contagious bacteria sprays up. You can catch intestinal bugs and hepatitis from it.
Splint a Broken Arm with a Magazine
eople with “positive” initials—ones that spell out things like J.O.Y. or W.O.W.—live nearly 4 1/2 years longer than people with neutral initials. D.U.D.’s and A.S.S.’s live nearly 3 years less. Other initials that may shorten life: I.L.L. and D.E.D.
Keep the Willies at Bay
o make an impromptu cast, place your wrist palm-down on top of a thick magazine. Roll the magazine into a U-shaped cradle and secure it with tape, an ace bandage, or long strips torn from a shirt. Then please remember to renew your subscription.
f you get claustrophobic in small spaces such as subways, elevators, and that closet of an office they stuck you in, visit your local fruit stand. A sniff of green apple may help relieve claustrophobic sensations. Carry one with you. Also, if you’re selling your house, placing a basket of fresh green apples on the table may make potential buyers perceive the house as larger.

yurveda is not only a medical science but also a way of healthy living.

A special section of Ayurveda, swasthavritta deals with the science of health and the code for a healthy conduct. ’Swasthavritta’ which literally means ‘the regime of abiding in one’s own nature’ is an individual’s guide to the path of healthy and long life.
Healthy living and ayurveda According to Ayurveda, there is no magical remedy or short cut for healthy living. Instead, strict and staunch regulation of the charyas, the principles of healthy lifestyle which include a proper routine regarding ahar, vihar and achars based on hetu (Material cause), kala (Season) and desha (Habitat) are the only ways for healthy living. Ayurveda defines the healthy state as: ‘A person, whose somatic and psychic humors are in equilibrium, digestion is uniformly healthy, with normal functioning of the fundamental tissues of the body and body wastes, accompa-

Swasthavritta mainly emphasizes on following a proper routine regime as well as seasonal regime. Other than these two, Swasthavritta also prescribes Sadvritta, the right ways of living i.e. following good mental, social, religious, personal and moral conduct.
