Help find Nocawe TEMBILE SGQOLANA

THE community of Mlungisi is looking for the Nocawe Ntsume who went missing on Friday.

Prostitutes allegedly held minor as sex slave TEMBILE SGQOLANA HORRIFIC details of alleged child sex slavery emerged in the Queenstown magistrate’s court during the bail application of four selfconfessed prostitutes and a Bangladeshi national. Hawks captain Lulama Jack told the court on Thursday that the suspects allegedly forced a 12-year-old girl to have sex with their clients and beat her when they were found out. “The accused sold the child just to get money for alcohol. They threatened to kill her if she did not sleep with their clients,” she said. According to Jack, the complainant was kept as a sex slave for weeks in the suspects’ brothel. “During that time they sold her to different men in exchange for money,” she said. She said the complainant pointed out the suspects and the person who had sexual intercourse with her. “After she pointed them out, two of the suspects beat her up, claiming that she was spreading bad news about them,” Jack said. She said upon interrogating the complain-

ant, they found out that she was sold for sex by the four suspects. “If they are released on bail, they will interfere with the investigation,” she said. Jack said there were five other suspects who would be added to the case. “Three of the suspects are from Bangladesh and two from Whittlesea. The Bangladeshi nationals have returned to Bangladesh,” she said. Jack said if the accused were released on bail they would warn their clients who have had sexual intercourse with the child. The four prostitutes, who cannot be named as they have not yet pleaded, are facing charges of exploitation of a minor child and rape. The foreign national is charged with rape after having sexual intercourse with the minor. The accused have been in custody since their arrest on November 16. Scores of ward 26 residents filled the court room as they wanted to see the suspects. The police had to be called in to monitor the situation. Only friends and family members were allowed to enter the court room as there was not enough space for all the people who came to show their support for the victim.

During their bail applications, all five accused submitted affidavits. The four prostitutes denied forcing the 12year-old girl to sell her body, claiming that they met her in October while she was already selling her body. One of the four prostitutes abandoned her bail application. Residents of ward 26 submitted a petition asking for the accused not to be released on bail. Ward 26 councillor Phaphama Madubedube condemned the incident. “As the residents we are angry about this and we want the law to assist us by not giving these people bail. We want the law to take its course,” he said. Madubedube said the suspects showed arrogance in court and they are not welcome in the community. “This is more than demonic, it’s Satanism. A minor was forced into prostitution by adults. They need to be taken away from this community,” he said. He said they would be disappointed if the suspects were granted bail. “These people are not fit to be in our community and don’t belong here. They belong behind bars,” he said. The case was postponed until today for the magistrate’s decision on the bail application.

Ward 14 councillor Nocawe Ntsume. Anele Seyisi said PHOTO: SUPPLIED Ntsume was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt, a denim skirt, black sandals and a black and white doek. “On Friday she went to a relative’s house to help them prepare for a funeral. She was last seen when she went home at 7:30pm,” he said. Sipho Lisa said they reported the matter to the police and have been looking for her since Friday. “Her two children are traumatised and are crying as they do not know what to expect. We would like anyone who has information on her whereabouts to please contact the family and the police,” he said. Lisa said they have been looking for her all over Mlungisi and the community had a meeting to try to get more information on her disappearance. “She is not someone who usually goes missing and this is the first time,” he said. Nomzamo-concerned residents forum secretary Andile Zondi said they looked for her Saturday and Sunday but did not find her. “The police said they will assist us in looking for her. We had a prayer session opposite Mutile tavern in an open space. We want all the resident s of Mlungisi to be part of the prayer,” he said Lisa urged people to contact the family on 072 135 6153 if they have information on Ntsume’s disappearance.

Residents asked to use water sparingly TEMBILE SGQOLANA CHRIS Hani District Municipality residents are warned to use water sparingly as the areas water sources are under severe pressure due to the lack of significant rainfall. Chris Hani District Municipality communication manager Thobeka Mqamelo said to make matters worse, water consumption has alarmingly gone up. “We appeal to our consumers to use water cautiously and adhere to the set restrictions until we see an

improvement in our water sources,” she said. Mqamelo said Dordrecht’s water sources have totally run dry. “First it was the Anderson and Thompson dams. Boreholes were drilled to counter this but these sources are also depleted and this has resulted in water rationing at 3-day intervals. “This has compelled us to rely on water carting to the area. There is currently one water cart in the area which definitely cannot cope given the situation. One more was assigned as from December 7 this year

to augment the existing one,” she said. “We are also exploring acquiring more water carters for the area. Customer care will do loud hailing to alert the community of the water points and scheduled times for water carters.” Mqamelo said in Queenstown they had an electrical fault that affected pumping from McEwan’s pump station. Although the fault has been resolved, water pumping is slower and it will take some time for their reservoirs to reach normal levels.

“We urge the community to preserve every drop of water,” she said. She said Enoch Mgijima Municipality will effect upgrades to electricity in the Ezibeleni area, Zone 2,3 and D and Unathi Mkefa area. This will affect the pumping of water to the reservoirs in that area. “We urge the community to please ear with this situation. Currently, extensive pumping is done to mitigate the situation and this will go on throughout the night to ensure adequate supply during the closure.

ANCYL branches call for disbandment of regional structure TEMBILE SGQOLANA ANC Youth League branches in the Chris Hani District Municipality have called for the disbandment of their regional structure. This call was made during a meeting with the newly appointed provincial task team (PTT) at the Thobi Kula Indoor Sport Centre on Monday. The PTT was in the region to assess the state of the organisation in the region. The regional executive committee did, however, not attend the meeting. During the meeting, the branches demanded that the PTT disband the regional structure before December 25 and put a regional task team in place.

They said the REC must be replaced with a structure that would be capable of leading the ANCYL to its desired direction. It must bring back its original character of guided militancy and radicalism within the context of organisational discipline. The branches affirmed their support and concurrence on the call made by the ANCWL and ANCYL at national level for a female president. ANCYL member Makhaya Nonyongo said there is nothing wrong with the ANCWL advocating the interests of women and the ANCYL advocating the interests of young people to lead the ANC. Zithulele Sigonyela said they would have a very happy Christmas if the REC could be disbanded

before Christmas. Lusanda Mahashe said this tells an important but disturbing story, about the manner in which the organisation has been handled. “A culture of gatekeeping, divisions, patronage, membership manipulation and institutionalised factionalism has deeply entrenched itself. More often than not, it has become a norm rather than an exception for members to circumvent and undermine organizational procedures and constitutional injunctions with impunity,” he said. When asked why they had not attended the meeting, ANCYL regional secretary Mzoxolo Peter said the ANC region was not willing to assist them with transportation and they were unable to transport the branch members.

“Cala has had no water for two days as a result of a water pipe burst over the weekend. This has been resolved, but it will take longer to fill the reservoirs,” said Mqamelo. She said the district’s water services provision team is working around the clock to ensure improvement in the service. “We urge the community to use our Customer Call Centre line 0800100100 for reporting water leaks, disaster incidents, fire and complaints to ensure effective and efficient rendering of any required service,” she said.

Unqualified audit opinion for Emalahleni EMALAHLENI Local Municipality received an improved unqualified audit opinion from the Auditor General, Kimi Makwetu, for the 2015/16 financial year for the second consecutive year. Emalahleni Municipality mayor Nomveliso Nyukwana said the audit opinion means the local authority did not regress, but instead maintained the status quo with a noticeable improvement in addressing certain areas that were identified by the Auditor General. “The financial statements were free from any material misstatements. The Auditor General evaluated the usefulness of the reported performance information to determine whether it was presented in accordance with National Treasury’s annual reporting principles and that it is consistent

with the planned objectives,” she said. Nyukwana said the infrastructure development and service delivery objective was tested and no material findings were raised on the usefulness of the reported performance information for the objective. “On the internal controls, in particular on financial and performance management, the AG found that the maintenance of supporting information was deficient for performance reporting due to the municipality not having standard operating procedures which would have assisted in identifying errors timeously to avoid material findings being raised,” she said. In tabling the audit opinion in a special council, Nyukwana said, “We are on the right track to achieve a clean audit. This is as a result of a collective effort by everyone. The achievement we observe today is owned by the former leadership as the period under

Exhibitor visits Museum

review is when they were in office. As the current leadership we must set our own targets towards achieving a clean audit. “We were commended by the Auditor General on how we spend money, in particular on service delivery programmes we implement in- house. We thank everyone who played a role in this achievement,” she said. Council chief whip Nolitha Lali said they were seeing footprints not only on the reports but in tangible services on the ground where people are residing. “People are looking for more; we are doing our level best to change their lives. Traditional leaders can bear testimony that this is not our democracy but a democracy where our people benefit,” she said. She thanked the management of the municipality and the entire workforce who worked tirelessly, even when council was in recess, in preparation for the elections.

4 Military veterans occupy houses by force News

December 15, 2016 Queenstown Express

TEMBILE SGQOLANA MILITARY veterans recently forcefully occupied the 60 houses which have been built for military veterans at the Chris Hani Sabelo Pamba military veterans’ suburbs. The veterans claim that the Department of Human Settlements is allocating houses to people they do not know and leaving the military veterans out. When Express arrived at the area, veterans were allocating themselves to houses, with some even writing their names on the walls to show who had chosen the house. Leader of the veterans, Zithulele Sana, said

SANMVA chairperson Sipho Ngwetsheni and deputy chairperson Mpolose Mangqangwana.

200 houses would be built for military veterans in Komani but only 60 had been finished so far. “After the delays and the problems regarding the beneficiary lists of the houses, we decided to take our houses. All those veterans who have their force number are given houses,” he said. Sana said this is the first step, as they would also be demanding the land that surrounds the suburbs. “As veterans we are not taken care of and we are suffering, so we demand that the government must give us the farms near our area and the land so that we can do our projects and feed our families,” he said. He said people with force numbers are removed from the lists and replaced by people without force numbers. Ntsikelelo Mdyogolo said they have been silent for a long time, but now it is the time for them to stand up and fight. “Veterans die without their houses. By doing this we are showing the government that we are tired of this,” he said. South African National Military Veterans Association (SANMVA) Chris Hani chairperson Sipho Ngwetsheni said they support the actions of the veterans as SANMVA. “The veterans formed a crisis committee team that will meet with the teams sent by the

Veterans occupied houses by force. minister of the Department of Military Veterans, Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, and the minister of Human Settlements, Lindiwe Sisulu,” he said. Ngwetsheni said the meetings are building up to the handing over of the houses to the military veterans. SANMVA Chris Hani deputy chairperson Mpolose Mangqangwana said people think they were delaying the handing over of the houses as the leadership. “We want government to take this matter very seriously as military veterans who liberated the country are not treated in a proper way. They die living in pathetic situations and as veterans we don’t want to be pushed to another lev-

el,” he said. He said they want the top leadership of the country to come and tell them what the status of the houses are. “We still have hope that our president Jacob Zuma will deal with the matter urgently,” he said. The Department of Human Settlements provincial spokesperson, Lwandile Sicwetsha, said the department receives confirmed military veterans from the Department of Military Veterans and allocates houses according to the approved beneficiaries from the list confirmed by the Department of Military Veterans. “Veterans who need houses need to contact their respective associations and also the Department of Military Veterans,” he said.

Mayor sends condolences to families of deceased initiates ENOCH Mgijima Municipality executive mayor Lindiwe Gunuza-Nkwentsha sent her deepest condolences to the families of the initiates who died last week from Ilinge Township and Whittlesea. Two initiates have died in the Enoch Mgijima Municipality area during the summer initiation season. In a statement, Nkwentsha said the Depart-

ment of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, in partnership with the Chris Hani District municipality and Enoch Mgijima Local Municipality, is involved in an awareness campaign to promote safe initiation this season. “We urge the families of the initiates to participate in this campaign to eradicate any wrong doing during this initiation season. We

want to restore and protect the dignity of our culture and customs,” she said. Nkwentsha said they take pride in their old age custom and they expect their future leaders to come home well and healthy to lead the nation. “It saddens us when we have to bury them instead of celebrating their home coming. Our traditional leaders have intervened by visiting

the initiation schools as an initiation monitoring strategy. “We also acknowledge the support from the various stakeholders, the Department of Health and the Department of Social Development,” she said. Nkwentsha said as the municipality, they would like to wish families strength at this time of loss. – TEMBILE SGQOLANA

Initiates saved after severe hailstorm TEMBILE SGQOLANA FIFTEEN initiates from Ezibeleni Township had to be rescued after a hail storm flooded the huts they were staying in. The initiation site behind Ezibeleni stadium was flooded when water from the high-lying areas swept through the huts. According to traditional nurses, everything was left “upside down” and wet. Chris Hani and Enoch Mgijima municipalities deployed rescue services and the initiates were moved to a nearby stadium which has secure change rooms. The following day, Chris Hani District Municipality Disaster Management handed over 15 blankets to all the initiates as the huts

were still being repaired. Enoch Mgijima Municipality council speaker Mzoxolo Peter commended traditional nurses for immediately contacting their ward councillors when the incident happened. CHDM traditional leader Chief Mbali, who also serves as Chairperson of the CHDM initiation Forum, said the Forum visits traditional sites each and every day during this initiation season to be able to intervene in incidents such as these. “In this area we have not had any deaths or any worrying incidents. It is sad that we have experienced deaths (in the province) this season and we appeal to all traditional nurses to be mindful of the weather and never deny initiates water,” he said. During the summer initiation season of 2015 in the Eastern Cape, 46 initiates died, of which 18 were from CHDM. In combating this, initiation forums were established in all CHDM Municipalities and workshops were held. Thus far in 2016, there have been five deaths in CHDM, while 18 deaths have been reported in the province. Komani residents were also affected by the hailstorm with windows of some houses being broken. Mbulelo Mbotshane said hail as big as golf balls hit the area and all the windows of his house were broken. It also damaged the roof of his house. Another resident, Nomza Ngxeketho, said she had to use buckets to keep the water out of her house. “All the windows were broken. When I tried to block the hail from coming inside, a hailstone the size of a golf ball hit me and I stopped,” she said. Cars could not move as water quickly filled the streets and many cars had to be towed away.

I contacted her and she explained to me things like: Shortboys to put money in account, Magic Ring to win money games and luck, Magic Wallet to multiply money. She also has Rats to put money in the house on the same day. She explained to me and I chose Shortboys. I followed the instructions, next thing I saw a large amount of money in my account. She asked me to withdraw her 10% and I was very excited - the money was real. And I told my sister about her and she phoned her for RATS. Now she is living a happy life. She has a Tavern business. Thanks Mama Sheena for changing our lives. From then she never contacted us and she also helps with: Lost Lover, Delete Loans, Divorce, Finish unfinished jobs by other healers. Call or whatsapp now:

PROF KATO helped me with spiritual shortboys that fixed all my financial problems and I managed to pay all my loans/debts in short time. He also has magic rings, magic rats, lucky wallets for money problems, ALSO has illuminate powers. I also forwarded him to my twin sister LIZEL 52 yrs in Knysna who her husband had dumped for another women after 22 years of marriage. He prayed for her a special spiritual prayer over the phone which brought him back within 2 days and he apologized for everything which he did to her. We thank you very much PROF KATO. If you have problems please do not hesitate to call him. He also treats over the phone and delivers nationwide home visits in Port Elizabeth

Testimony for KING LWASA

For taking away my suffering!

My name is Ivan 54 from PE

Thompson Kareedow life was mess, I nearly took my own life until I saw this woman of truth and miracles. I had a lot of loans and bank took my house and cars, I had no school fees for my kids. When I saw MAMA JANAT on TV program I said this is my chance to change my life, I contacted her and also visited her then she prayed for me, cleansed me then she used her Magic Rats to put money in my house.

- After losing hope in healers without help to my love affairs - Financial crisis - I tried Zunga who put my life back on the line - I was able to clear my debts & have a stable relationship

My Names is Charniel Johanes from Western Cape. Firstly I want to thank KING LWASA for what he done for me in my life and for all success I have achieved because of him Financially. There are many doctors out there who claim they can change people’s life financially while they cannot do it and I’m saying this out of what I have been going through trying to change my life. Before I met the real one KING LWANGA, I lost a lot of money until last year 24th October when I read about KING LWANGA who helped a lot of people by using SHORT Boys to put money into their account in 2hrs and he only take 20% after the success of work. Am happy with my family and we got our own business running. He also got RATS to bring money in your house, MAGIC RING to win money games, Lost lover, Family Matters and Divorce all problems solved in same day

I was happy I couldn't believe when I bought back my house and car my kids back to school and living a stress free life. Also has MAGIC WALLET, MAGIC RING, AND SHORTBOYS I believe in MAMA JANAT when I saw she is the same name like me and it truly happened. My boyfriend left me without taking my calls and not paying child maintenance. I went to MAMA JANAT and she prayed for me only using his photo and surname. He now back to me and paying all the child maintenance.

I advise anyone regarding this to call

Making the glaze

Pour the Coca-Cola into a medium sized sauce pan. On high heat, reduce the liquid by half. Once reduced, whisk in the hot English mustard, the treacle sugar, the mustard powder and the coffee powder. Turn the heat up to maximum and reduce again, stirring often. After about five minutes, the liquid should be slightly syrupy. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in 1½ Tbsp of lemon juice and 50ml Klipdrift Brandy.

School girls benefit from ‘Soccer Dads for Christmas’ fundraiser SIPHOSIHLE DYONASE AN initiative known as Soccer Dads For Christmas took place at Mans Pub and Braai place on Saturday. The project was an active day of soccer games with the aim of raising funds to purchase sanitary towels for school girls in the Komani area. Nobenguni Mzamo, a local primary school teacher and coordinator of the project, said, “Four teams of five people each participated in the games, with each person contributing an amount of R100, which made a total of R2 000 on that day.” She said the proceeds from the games will be used by the winning team to buy the sanitary towels. The course focuses on assisting girls, particularly those in the rural areas. “They sometimes miss out on a week of school and you find that others use ordinary cloths which is not hygienic. They go to such extents because they cannot afford proper sanitary pads.” She said they are trying to involve the Department of Health and the Department of Edu-

cation, as well as local businesses to adopt certain schools in the region in order to contribute a monthly supply of pads to the schools as they are trying to bridge the gap. Mzamo said they have collected about 400 packets which they have distributed to three schools in the district. “As we reflected on the November and December distributions, we thought what will happen to the children in January?” She said they have not stopped collecting and ask local companies for contributions. “Since I am a teacher, I have decided to use this holiday period to continue with the fundraising events.” Nobenguni said this is not the first outreach project they have done in Komani. They have worked with other children’s homes and schools such as Khayalethemba and Phumelela in Ezibeleni. In addition to this, they have also assisted communities like the Gauteng Informal Settlement in Mlungisi with clothing donations and soup kitchens on a quarterly basis. Nobenguni said they have big plans for next year. “I’m planning to register a NPO, get a year plan and get more people involved,” she said.

New MOKKA X signals new direction for Opel

REPORTER OPEL’S compact SUV gets a preChristmas makeover and part of the update is a name change – it’s now the MOKKA X. The Mokka is already well-established as an urban warrior with over 600 000 sales globally and 2 672 in South Africa. The upper-case style of its name is illustrative of an even bolder approach to modern motoring, while the X in the nomenclature is the new global identifier for future Opel SUV and crossover vehicles. Speaking at the launch of the new Opel MOKKA X, Ian Nicholls, President and Managing Director, GM Sub-Saharan Africa, said, “Opel is on its way to achieving its vision of becoming the second largest passenger car brand in Europe by 2022. Part of this success is a renewed focus on bringing competitive new products to market. In fact, the MOKKA X is the 13th new or refreshed Opel to be launched in South Africa since 2012.” Aimed at drivers who are looking for a vehicle that is safe, family oriented and powerful, the MOKKA X merges functionality, connectivity, technology and safety in a vehicle which is just 4,28 metres from bumper to bumper. A key highlight and most obvious change is the move to new headlight clusters that combine daytime running lamps and LED technology. This allows the MOKKA X to provide owners with a dusk-to-dawn safety advantage and 24-hour illumination. The mechanics remain unchanged along with the four model line-up of Enjoy and Cosmo trim choices in either manual or automatic. Powering all four MOKKA X derivatives is Opel’s proven 1,4 litre four-cylinder turbocharged ECOTEC petrol engine, which produces 103kW between 4 900 and 6 000rpm and 200Nm between 1 850 and 4 900rpm. Zero to 100km/h is reached in 9.8 seconds with a top speed of 196km/ h for the 6-speed manual models. For the two models equipped with the 6-speed automatic transmission, the 0 – 100km/h sprint is achieved in 10.7 seconds and they carry a top speed of 191km/h. The average fuel economy of the new MOKKA X 1.4T Enjoy manual is 5,9 litres per 100km, while the MOKKA X 1.4T Enjoy automatic

The most obvious change in the exterior of the new Opel MOKKA X is the move to new headlight clusters that combine daytime running lamps and LED technology. PHOTO:SUPPLIED model’s consumption is stated as 6,2 litres per 100km on the combined cycle. The MOKKA X 1.4T Cosmo manual sips 6 litres per 100km, with the MOKKA X 1.4T Cosmo automatic returning a combined cycle average figure of 6,5 litres per 100km.

Carbon emissions are rated at 139g/km for the MOKKA X 1.4T Enjoy manual and 154g/km for the MOKKA X 1.4T Enjoy automatic. The MOKKA X 1.4T Cosmo manual is rated at 145g/km with the Cosmo automatic at 160g/km. The interior trim is revised too.

The Enjoy model is dressed in Milano Jet Black upholstery, the Cosmo in Jasmin Jet Black. Dashboard architecture from the new Astra has also been seamlessly integrated, for a more modern look and feel, along with improved ergonomics. The Cosmo now boasts a high-

end infotainment system with R4.0 IntelliLink and a driver display – this connectivity package is compatible with a wide range of media platforms via a USB input and is offered as an option on the Enjoy. Optional on the Cosmo is Navi 900 IntelliLink, which includes a full colour display. The seamless integration of the user’s mobile device makes the MOKKA X the best-connected compact SUV in South Africa. In addition to the optional Navi 900 IntelliLink system Cosmo owners can upgrade to a premium LED lighting package which adds rear LED clusters and auto-levelling headlights with full Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) technology and integrated cornering lights for maximum safety – without negatively impacting on other road users. The Mokka’s compact packaging with clever proportions, along with the high seating position, extra space, versatility and go-anywhere nature of an SUV, have been well-received. “As predicted when we launched Mokka just over 18 months ago, it has grown into a worthy contender in a segment which is experiencing exponential growth all over the world,” said Dominic Rimmer, General Manager Product Planning, GM Sub-Saharan Africa. “In South Africa it has attracted a new kind of buyer to the brand: those who seek a fashionable subcompact SUV which is exciting to drive,” said Rimmer. “With the recent changes which have seen it transform into the MOKKA X, there are even more good reasons for smart young families to come to Opel. “We remain bullish about the Opel brand generally and the product offensive and this continues unabated: between the beginning of 2016 and 2020 the brand will introduce nearly 30 new models worldwide,” said Rimmer.

Warranty and pricing:

All new Opel MOKKA X derivatives are backed by Opel Complete Care with a comprehensive 5-year/120 000km warranty and come with a 5-year/90 000km service plan linked to service intervals of 15000km. MOKKA X 1.4T Enjoy 6MT R317 500 MOKKA X 1.4T Enjoy 6AT R328 400 MOKKA X 1.4T Cosmo 6MT R357 400 MOKKA X 1.4T Cosmo 6AT R368 100 Options MOKKA X Enjoy R4.0 IntelliLink R6 700 MOKKA X Cosmo – Sunroof R6 500 MOKKA X Cosmo - NAVI 900 IntelliLink R10 700 MOKKA X Cosmo - Premium Sight & Light Pack R25 000

The interior of the new Opel MOKKA X has been revised and dashboard architecture from the new Astra has also been integrat­ ed, for a more modern look and feel. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Toyota’s Fortuner and Hilux models upgraded THE Toyota Hilux range remains one of SA’s favourite vehicles with the new model having racked up over 30 000 units since introduction in February this year, topping sales charts on a consistent basis. The vehicle market can be a strange beast, with varying trends, buying patterns and market forces shaping it. To this end Toyota has analysed the market carefully and as the company prides itself on being customer focused, has conducted in-depth customer research. As a result of this approach, Toyota has introduced upgraded Hilux SRX models. Beefed­up Body The most significant change comes in the form of the change from the previous “narrow-body” design to the new “wide-body” construction. Metaphorically speaking, the Hilux SRX has been subjected to a rigorous gym exercise programme, with the result that it now stands wider, taller and is more prominent. The change to the wide configuration, brings along with it bold, integrated over fenders, paired with a wider, front bumper design. This reprofiled exterior adds 55mm to the width of Single-cab and Double-cab SRX derivatives. Xtra-cab models already boast the “widebody” construction, and as such all three body shapes now share the same exterior width dimension. The exterior mirrors inherit turn signal lamps, while retaining the durable matte black treatment and electric adjustment. Inch­up Alloy Wheels

styling, which are sure to appeal to the leisure buyer as well. The new SRX package perfectly complements the very capable 110kW, 400Nm 2.4 litre GD-6 engine and delivers a bakkie that will work hard in the week, while allowing its owners to play just as hard over weekends too. The model line-up remains as per current with a multitude of configurations, engines and body-shapes, ensuring that there is a Hilux for all. Fortuner brings more bling It can be argued that alloy wheels make one of the most significant contributions to a vehicle’s aesthetics. On this note, all 2.8 GD-6 and 4.0 V6 Fortuner models are now equipped with striking 18-inch alloy wheels. Replacing the previously employed 17inch version, the new alloys are fitted with 265/60/R18 rubber and make use of distinctive counterflowing spokes, with a machined finish accentuating the dual dimensional design. The entry-level 2.7 VVTi and 2.4 GD-6 models retain the stylish 17” ‘dual rib’ alloy wheels. Toyota’s Hilux and Fortuner models have received an upgrade. The exterior façade is enhanced with a change to wider-track 17-inch alloy wheels (previously steel wheels), shod with 265/65/ R17 all-terrain rubber (an increase from the current 225/70/R17 specified items). The new wheels are shared with the Raider grade, lending the SRX some solid street

cred. The latest round of upgrades to the Hilux SRX, positions it to occupy a unique space in the LCV market. While retaining its go-anywhere, do-anything utility credentials, the SRX derivatives now incorporate enhanced exterior

Luxurious Leather As an additional bonus, the 2.7 VVTi and 2.4 GD-6 Fortuner derivatives are furnished with leather interior trim, replacing the current textile offering. This luxurious appointment is provided at no extra cost to the customer, boosting the already high-value proposition significantly.

Four teams represent Chris Hani in the New Year’s Cup TEMBILE SGQOLANA FOUR Chris Hani District Municipality teams will be competing against the best teams in the country after qualifying for the New Year’s Cup in Grahamstown starting on December 16. MK Academy from Whittlesea, Amavarara from Tsembeyi village, Valgas from Komani and Fast Eleven from Middleburg made it to the top 32 teams to enter the tournament. Fans had a chance to vote for the teams they would like to participate in the tournament and 32 teams were voted in by their own fans. According to the voting results, Fast Eleven was in third position, followed by MK Academy in fourth position. Amavarara were in ninth position, while Valgas were in position 20. A total of 30 out of the 32 teams come from the Eastern Cape with only Junior Lions and Motswedi coming from Gauteng and North West respectively. The tournament was started by its chief executive officer Sifunda Klaas and chairman Luyanda Papu. Retired South African soccer player who played 18 games for Bafana Bafana, Patrick Mayo, and former Golden Arrows player, Mzuvukile Tom, are the ambassadors of the tournament. Tom said they are ready for the tournament.

“We are spending sleepless nights preparing for this day. Teams are expected to arrive today (December 15) and all of them are going to be present during the opening,” he said. Tom who is not only the ambassador of the tournament, but is also involved in the preparations, invited people to come and watch the development of football in the Eastern Cape. “This is the first year of the tournament and we have a five-year plan to make this tournament an annual tournament,” he said. He said their aim is not only to promote football but also to develop soccer players from the Eastern Cape. “In the Premier Soccer League (PSL) there are only seven players that come from the Eastern Cape and by doing this we are opening doors for more players to make it to the PSL. We want to have more players in the PSL from the Eastern Cape,” he said. Tom invited people who want to attend the game to go to their website for directions and accommodation in Grahamstown. “We are prepared for this tournament and we would like people to come in numbers and fill the Dlephu Stadium,” he said. The winner of the tournament will get R100 000 with the second-placed team receiving R50 000. The teams in the third place and fourth place will receive R25 000 and R20 000 respectively. For more info on the tournament visit their website at www.newyearscup.co.za.

teams, a team from the Church of God and Saints of Christ and another team of locals who are playing indoor cricket in Cape Town, to participate in the competition. “The main aim of the challenge is to hold a reunion as all the players are from this area originally. “We are also encouraging people to plough back into the community. All the people who are funding the event are residents of Komani who no longer work here,” he said. For more details about the challenge, contact Yawa on 071 701 8176.
