DEATH ROAD CLAIMS TWO AnĂŠ Roux Watermeyer Street is fast becoming one of the most notorious roads in the east of Pretoria. With regular accidents, drunk drivers speeding and heavy trafďŹ c on the road that leads from the N4 freeway through Silverton, the Tshwane metro is now being accused of failing to react to the many complaints they have received over the past year. Having been dubbed ‘the road of death’, Watermeyer Street this weekend again lived up to its name when it claimed another two lives with residents having to step in and assist motorists when the authorities failed to respond to their emergency calls. Ward councillor Ben Chapman told Rekord he was blaming the metro in part for the fatal accident as calls for the implementation of trafďŹ c control measures had been ignored by the metro for too long. “After appealing to the metro for more than a year to rectify the speeding problem on Watermeyer Street, people died this weekend. Furthermore, it took 25 minutes for the ďŹ re department to arrive, despite the fact that they have a station less than two kilometers from the accident scene. The neighbourhood watch had to appeal to residents to bring ďŹ re extinguishers to the accident scene as the ďŹ re services were failing to respond.â€? The chairman of the Meyerspark neighbourhood watch, Piet van Wyk de Vries, said accidents on Watermeyer were a weekly occurrence. “The problem is that motorists simply ignore the speed limit and there are too little trafďŹ c control measures.â€? He told Rekord that speed cameras and additional trafďŹ c lights would go a long way in making Watermeyer Street a safer

road. Silverton police spokesperson, Captain Jan Sepato echoed residents concerns. “We attend to accidents on that road frequently because motorists ignore the 60 kilometres per hour speed limit. It is also a main road so it is always busy,â€? he said. Chapman commended the community for the assistance in Saturday night’s accident. Residents alerted each other and rushed to the scene while attempting to contact the authorities, however, it is alleged that calls to the call centre went unanswered. Elmar Snyman was one of the ďŹ rst to arrive and found that two vehicles, a white Jetta and a blue Golf, had collided. The passengers of the Jetta, an elderly man and his son, only 12 years old, died while the third motorist escaped with minor injuries. Snyman blocked the road to warn oncoming motorists while other residents drove to the local ďŹ re station. While they were waiting for the ďŹ re brigade to arrive, one of the vehicles started to catch ďŹ re from leaking petrol and oil. Snyman sent out a message on the community radio system for residents to bring ďŹ re extinguishers in an attempt to douse the ames. “The vehicle was on ďŹ re and our household extinguishers did little to the blaze. Only when the ďŹ re brigade arrived could the ďŹ re be contained.â€? Snyman added that the metro police arrived a full hour after the accident and did not take control of the scene. “The metro police did nothing, residents assisted in diverting trafďŹ c until the scene was cleared at 04:00 on Sunday morning.â€? The metro was unable to comment at the time of going to print.

AfriForum plaas plaasmoorde in die kollig Plaasmoorde raak ĂĄlmal. So meen besorgde Afrikaners wat Saterdag in die Pretoriamiddestad teen plaasmoorde protes gemaak het. Van links is Ernst Roets, adjunkuitvoerende hoof van AfriForum, Susan NortjĂŠ en Steve Hofmeyr. NortjĂŠ se suster en gesin is wreedaardig in ’n plaasaanval op 1 Desember 2010 vermoor. Volgens Roets dui AfriForum se navorsing dat drie keer soveel plaasmoorde as gewone moorde jaarliks in Suid-Afrika plaasvind. “Boere word in groot getalle vermoor en selfs gemartel. Ten spyte hiervan weier die regering om te erken dat daar ’n krisis is, of om ’n gefokusde teenstrategie uit te werk. Ons moet passiwiteit onder SuidAfrikaners hokslaan. Hierdie moordgetalle is uiters onrusbarend maar wat erger is, is om in die lig daarvan stil te bly en niks daaraan te doen nie.â€?



Police continue to fight crime successfully Ané Roux The east of Pretoria seems to be a bit safer after various police successes in the Garsfontein and Silverton policing areas.

In recent weeks, two members of an alleged housebreaking syndicate targeting Lynnwood, Faerie Glen and Garsfontein were arrested when they tried to rob a woman of her jewellery while in her vehi-

cle at a petrol station. According to Garsfontein police spokesperson, Dave Muller, patrolling officers and members of the community saw the incident and rushed to the woman’s aid.

The suspects tried to flee but were quickly apprehended. The police officers found an unlicensed firearm in their possession and upon further investigation, linked the two men to housebreaking incidents in the area. “This is a massive success for the police and the community members who vigilantly assist the police in patrolling the streets. We need all the help we can get in fighting crime successfully,” Muller said. He added that residents should contact the police with any information on suspicious activities. “The Garsfontein police have launched several crime prevention operations, especially for the festive season and in the months following. We want to work with our community and we welcome any information they want to share to make the area a safer place during this festive season,” Muller said. At the same time, a housebreaking syndicate operating in Silverton and surrounds were also smashed when two members were arrested and successfully prosecuted. According to Captain Jan Sepato of the Silverton police, the prosecution of the two gang members was a culmination of good police work and community involvement. “Two men were sentenced by the North Gauteng High court for the murder and robbery of the 70-year-old Maria Wiing recently,” he said, adding that a third man connected to the robbery was also arrested and convicted. The first two accused were sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder and an additional 15 years for aggravated robbery while the third accused was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment. According to Sepato, police records indicated that the three convicts had been arrested in the past on several charted for various crimes.

Johan Moller stands at one of five different rubble heaps along the N4 freeway.

Rubble dumped next to N4 Ané Roux Illegal dumping seems to be on the increase in the open veld next to the N4 freeway and the Pretoria Botanical Gardens. A concerned resident, Johan Moller, is very unhappy with the manner in which rubble was illegally dumped.

“Some people seemed to think that dumping building rubble was acceptable. “We have designated sites for building rubble. Those who dump their rubble in the open veld are doing so illegally and residents should not tolerate such behaviour.” He warned that the commu-

nity camera on Cussonia Avenue could be utilised to identify illegal dumping. “The camera has been used to prevent hijacking and smash and grab incidents. It can be used to spot those who use this open veld as their dumping site.” The metro was unable to comment at the time of going to print.

Sommige motoriste in die ooste van Pretoria sal gou gewoond daaraan moet raak om nuwe roetes te gebruik na die Tshwane-metro besluit het om drie paaie gedeeltelik vir motorverkeer te sluit. Die strate wat geraak word, is Idastraat in Menlopark, Alewyn Vorsterstraat-kruising met Rodericksstraat in Lynnwood en die Garstfontein/N1-kruising en Garstfonteinweg in Ashlea Gardens. Die sluiting van Idastraat word gedoen om inwoners se belange in Lynnwood Glen te beskerm teen Sanral se beoogde ontwikkeling vir meer parkeerruimte by hul kantoor in Idastraat. Dit volg nadat die Lynnwood Glen Eiendomskomitee, die Lynnwood Glen-inwonersaksiegroep en Sanral op 1 Augustus 2011 ooreegekom het om Sanral toe te laat om sy parkeerruimte te vergroot. Sowat 200m van Idastraat word hierdeur geraak. Daar sal egter beperkte toegang wees om inwoners wat in die geslote deel woon, toegang tot hul huise te bied. Die sluiting van Alewyn Vorsterstraat volg nadat die metro ’n petisie ontvang het waarin ’n gevaarlike verkeersprobleem uiteengesit word. Volgens die petisie jaag motoriste in

Rodericksstraat en veroorsaak ’n gevaar vir inwoners met verskuilde en blinde toegange tot hul eiendomme. Alewyn Vorsterstraat is slegs 75m lank en die straat word as ’n kortpad gebruik om die verkeersirkel by die kruising van Rodericksstraat en Sussexlaan te vermy. Die verkeervloei in Ashlea Gardens word geraak deur die konstruksie van die Garstfonteinwisselaar wat voltooi is. Dit het ook sy uitwerking op verkeervolume in Garstfonteinweg en Matroosbergweg en Selatistraat. Ashlea Gardens Uitbreiding 6 sal toegang tot Matroosbergpad kry. Nog meer verkeer word verwag sodra alle ontwikkeling op die pad voltooi is. Om die integriteit van die residensiële gebiede van Ashlea Gardens en Alphenpark teen die ekstra verkeersvloei te beskerm, is besluit om Matroosbergweg op twee plekke te sluit. Dit is by die kruising van Delyweg en Matroosbergweg, Ashlea Gardens en naby die kruising met Garstfonteinweg in lyn met die grense van erwe 52 en 53 van Ashlea Gardens. Openbare vervoer maak gebruik van Garstfonteinweg en Delystraat. Om openbare vervoergebruikers tegemoet te kom, sal hierdie paaie voetgangerverkeer na en van die twee deurpaaie kan hanteer.




Deurwinterde politikus vier 35 jaar diens Du P Martins Die deurwinterde politikus, Koos van der Merwe van Wapadrand het Vrydag sy 35e jaar in die politiek met politieke stalmaats van gunterjare met ’n swierige ete by ’n spoggerige restaurant gevier. Omstreeks 12:00 het hy op die stoep van die restaurant een na die ander van sy gaste ingewag en die weersiens van elk was soos dit net kan as jy ’n sak sout saam opgeëet het. Van die genooide gaste was Pik Botha, Stoffel van der Merwe, Andrew Gerber, Ferdie Hartzenberg, Willem Cruywagen, Chris de Jager en generaal-majoor Gert Opperman. Tydens die ete is daar met groot gelag kort-kort staaltjies van gebeure in die politiek oorvertel. “Ek was van kleintyd ’n politieke aktivis. Toe ek agt of nege was het ek al pamflette versprei en in posbusse geplaas. Toe ek begin spiere kry, so teen 14, het ek al gehelp om plakkate op te sit. Ek het elke politieke vergadering saam met my pa bygewoon,” het Van der Merwe vertel. Met groot lekker vertel hy hoe hy op 26 Mei 1948 aan die verkiesing deelgeneem het waartydens Jan Smuts uit die kussings gelig is. “Ek onthou daardie dag goed. Ons as Nattes was arm. Die Sappe se tafels was oorlaai met allerhande lekkernye. Ek en ’n paar maats het ’n plan bedink. Ons het vir ons Sap-rosette gekry en etenstyd by die Sappe se tente aangekom en vir die Engelse tannies daar gesê: ‘Auntie, ons gaan wen vandag. Ons is honger.’ Sommer dadelik is vir ons kos ingelaai en ons het die Sappe omtrent bankrot geëet. Buite die tent het ons die rosette afgehaal en die aand weer aangesit, daar aangemeld weer lekker geëet.” Van der Merwe is die eerste keer op 30 November 1977 as LV verkies en het die sonderlinge onderskeiding dat hy die langste dienende parlementariër in Suid-Afrika

is. Hy het onder sewe staatshoofde gedien en is ook die langste dienende hoofsweep en lid van die Regtelike Dienskommissie. “Ek was verkies as ’n Nasionale Partykandidaat en het in die hoedanigheid gedien totdat die party sy beleid oor magsdeling verander het. Ons het saam met dr. Andries Treurnicht geloop en ek het vir tien jaar in die Konserwatiewe Party (KP) gedien. Die KP het my uitgeskop want hulle het gesê ek het te liberaal geword. Maar ek het gesien ons gaan nie die stryd wen nie en ek het my toe by ’n swart vennoot, dr. Mangosuthu

Buthelezi gevoeg, waar ek vandag nog is. Die Zoeloes en die Afrikaner het vennote nodig want ons het baie van dieselfde strydpunte,” vertel hy. As gesoute parlementariër het Van der Merwe al meer as 100 keer die buiteland op sendings besoek. Hy het homself as prokureur bekwaam en is tans met ’n doktorsverhandeling in politieke wetenskap besig. “Aftree? Nee, ek het mos gesê ek tree af die dag wanneer ek doodgaan,” skerts Van der Merwe.

Opposisie klop ANC Du P Martins In ʼn verrassende wending het die Demokratiese Alliansie (DA) met die hulp van ander opposisiepartye Donderdag die ANC meerderheidsparty in die Tshwane-metro raadsvergadering in die stemming oor ’n mosie met 85 stemme teen 77 geklop. Die ANC-mosie was teen André van der Walt van die DA gemik omdat hy na bewering in verlede maand se raadsvergadering sou gesê het dat ANC-raadslede betrokke is by ’n seksskandaal waar voorregte verkry kon word in ruil vir seksuele dienste. Die ANC-raadslede het geëis dat hy bewyse moet voorlê en die uitlating terugtrek wat hy op verlede maand se raadsvergadering gemaak het. Die speaker, Morakana Mosupyoe, het Van der Walt daarop gewys dat dit ’n ernstige klag is en hy is aangesê om bewyse hiervan voor die raad se reëlsen etiese komitee voor te lê. Van der Walt het verduidelik dat hy in geen stadium gesê het dat raadslede betrokke is nie en dat sy inset op verlede maand se raadsvergadering voortspruit uit klagtes wat hy van die gemeenskap ontvang het. ’n Vrou wat deel was van die metro se openbare werkersprogram het aangevoer dat sy seksueel geteister was deur amptenare van die metro. “In die lig van die erns hiervan het ek dit goed gedink om dit onder die raadslede se aandag te bring,” het hy gesê. Die speaker het daarop aangedring dat Van der Walt bewyse asook sy oorspronklike toespraak moet voorlê en sy beweringe moet terugtrek. Van der Walt het daarop gewys dat ’n vrou wat seksueel geteister word nie geneë is om sommer in ’n raad oor sulke sake te praat nie, maar dat hy so seker van sy saak is dat hy weier om die raad om verskoning te vra en indien hy verkeerd bewys word, hy dadelik die raad om verskoning sal vra. Hy is selfs bereid om ’n maand se salaris aan ’n inrigting vir mishandelde vroue te skenk. In die wysiging op die ANC se mosie is aanvaar dat ʼn spesiale komitee bestaande uit lede van alle politieke groeperinge aangewys sal word om die saak te ondersoek. Toe die speaker die uitslag van 85 stemme vir en 77 teen die wysiging bekendmaak, het DAlede luidkeels gejuig. Die stemming het gevolg nadat die burgemeester, Kgosientso Ramokgopa, en 20 van sy raadslede vertrek het om ’n ANCvergadering met betrekking tot die Mangaung-konferensie by te woon.



Tshwane-metro skors 3 amptenare oor mijoene Du P Martins

Oorkonde vir musiekdoyen Op 90-jarige ouderdom is dr. Stefans Grové, die vader van die kunsmusiektradisie in Suid-Afrika, onlangs op ’n deftige onthaal van die SA Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns met ’n oorkonde vereer vir sy aandeel in die bevordering van kunsmusiek. Op die foto ontvang hy ’n oorkonde van die Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns van professor Wannie Carstens, voorsitter van die akademie. In 1953 was Grové die eerste Suid-Afrikaner aan wie die gesogte Fulbright-beurs toegeken is en hy het daarmee aan die Universiteit van Harvard gestudeer. Met sy aanstelling by die Universiteit van Pretoria was hy professor in komposisie en die residensiële komponis. Talle toekennings deur verskeie musiek- en kultuurorganisasies is deur die jare aan Grové oorhandig. Hy het erelidmaatskap van die Suid Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns in 2008 ontvang en ’n erepenning vir musiek in 1997. Sy werk was deur die jare dikwels die onderwerp van artikels, tesisse en proefskrifte in Suid-Afrika asook in die buiteland.

Drie senior amptenare van die Tshwane-metro is met die raadsvergadering Donderdag geskors. Dit volg nadat die burgemeester, Kgosientso Ramokgopa, die normale gang van die raadsvergadering onderbreek het met die voorlegging van drie spesiale verslae. Die geskorstes is Mapiti Matsena, wat die strategiese uitvoerende direkteur in die speaker se kantoor was, die uitvoerende direkteur vir behuising, Mapule Phora en die strategiese uitvoerende direkteur vir infrastruktuurdienste, Lefadi Makibinyane. “Ek sê nie dat die drie skuldig is nie. Wat ek sê is dat ons die drie sake het waarvoor die geskorstes verantwoording moet doen,” het Ramokgopa gesê. Matsena was, toe die raadsvergadering begin is, nog op sy plek voor die speaker, Morakane Mosupyoe se stoel, maar het kort daarna opgestaan en die raadsaal verlaat. Ramokgopa het gesê dat die skorsing van Matsena te doen het met die wyksraadverkiesings wat vroeër vanjaar groot kritiek uitgelok het en ongerymdhede aan die lig gebring het. Vroeër vanjaar het die metro aangekondig dat ’n ondersoek getoon het dat sekere prosesse met betrekking tot verskaffingprosedure nie nagevolg is nie deurdat ’n diensverskaffer aangestel is

om die wyksraadverkiesing te bemark. Die uitgee van ’n R8,5 miljoen tender om dit te doen was buitengewoon omdat die metro in die verlede nooit van ’n buite-instansie vir die taak gebruik gemaak het nie. Daar is ook onduidelikhede oor hoe die dienskontrak met die diensverskaffer gesluit is, wat die metro meer as R10 miljoen uit die sak gejaag het. Matsena is vroeër vanjaar van 27 Januarie tot 1 April met spesiale verlof geplaas terwyl die aangeleentheid teen hom ondersoek is. Matsena het hom na die hof gewend om te verhinder dat Ramokgopa die verslag teen hom in die raadsvergadering bekendmaak. Onderwyl die raadsvergadering aan die gang was, is bekendgemaak dat die hof sy aansoek verwerp het. Die saak teen Matsena sal nou na die stadsbestuurder vir ’n dissiplinêre verhoor verwys word. “Ons glo dat die geld wat vir die wyksraadverkiesingkwessie aangewend is te veel is. Ons het nie waarde vir ons geld ontvang nie,” het Ramokgopa gesê. Makibinyane se skorsing volg nadat hy herhaalde aanbevelings van die raad om verslae rakende die gebruik van Rooiwal- en Pretoria-Wes-kragstasies voor te lê, geïgnoreer het. “Ons belê in kragstasies sonder dat ons enigiets terugontvang. Dit is nou ruim vyf maande al wat

ons vir sy verslae wag, maar tot dusver is niks ontvang nie,” het hy gesê. Makibinyane word daarvan verdink dat hy na bewering sonder enige mandaat ’n kontrak met ’n diensverskaffer gesluit het en nie sy werk gedoen het nie. Die dienskontrak het aan ’n private maatskappy toestemming verleen om met die rioolnetwerk gratis hul eie optiese kabelnetwerk te installeer. Die verlies van inkomste vir die metro word op sowat R1,5 miljard beraam. Toestemming aan die maatskappy is intussen geweier en Makibiniyane se aandeel in die aangeleentheid word ondersoek. Phora is geskors omdat sy geen rekenskap kon gee van R70 miljoen van die metro se behuisingafdeling nie. Sy het na bewering geteken vir R10 miljoen se voorafvervaardigde huise, wat nooit gelewer is nie. “Dit is al ’n geruime tyd dat die burgemeester by verskeie geleenthede gesê het dat hy hom vir skoon administrasie beywer en dat daar daadwerklik teen amptenare opgetree sal word wat hulle skuldig aan wanbestuur of korrupsie maak,” het Pieter de Necker, woordvoerder van die burgemeester, gesê. “Hierdie is ’n bewys dat hy ernstig is daaromtrent. Hierdie is nie die laaste van hierdie soort verslae wat voor die raad gaan dien nie. Daar is nóg wat voor stok gekry sal word.”



Huge accomodation shortage in Hatfield Stephané Bothma

Ané Venter en haar vriendin Zané Oostuizen is twee jong meisies wat veg vir die behoud van renosters.

Leerlinge wek bewustheid Ané Roux Die aanslag op renosters het deur die loop van die jaar vele opslae gemaak. In die media is daar luidkeels berig oor persone wat renosters koelbloedig doodskiet vir hul horings. Twee graad 6 Laerskool Anton van Wouw-leerlinge, Ané Venter en Zané Oosthuizen het egter besluit dat hulle genoeg gehad het van die wrede aanvalle op SuidAfrika se renosters en het ’n plan beraam om saam met medeleerlinge op te staan vir die behoud van die gehoringde reuse. “Ons het besef dat ons as kinders ook iets moet doen en saam het ons besluit om ’n renosterbewusmakingsprojek

aan te pak. Ons het besluit om ’n groot legkaart te bou en so verskillende skole genooi om dit met herwinbare materiale te versier,” vertel die twee bewaarders. “Ons het ook besluit om ’n geldinsamelingsdag te reël en die geld aan organisasies te skenk wat teen renosterstopers veg.” In slegs een maand het die twee daarin geslaag om R21 000 in te samel en aan die Rhino Action Group Effort oftewel Rage te skenk. Met hul sukses het die twee besef dat die nood in Pretoria vir ander sosiale liefdadigheidsprojekte ook groot was. “Ons is bly ons kon van die renosters help en dit het ons gemotiveer om na mense in nood in ons omgewing te kyk. Ons het

besluit om nou al te begin met ’n kombersieprojek wat ons aan behoeftige mense wil skenk in die winter en ook ’n handsakkieprojek wat ons aan vroue wil skenk. In die handsakkies wil ons vroueprodukte sit.” Die twee voeg by dat mense en diere vir hulle ewe belangrik is en dat as kinders, niks hulle keer om betrokke te raak nie. “Ons het geleer dat mense oor die algemeen graag betrokke wil raak en help. Ons het net die voorstelle gemaak en die ondersteuning kom van ander mense wat ook wil help. Dit is wonderlik en ons gaan aanhou met ons projekte om so bietjie-vir-bietjie ’n verskil te maak in mense en diere se lewens.”

The high demand for residential units in a new development in Hatfield, aimed at young professionals and University of Pretoria students, underlined the shortage of suitable accommodation in the area. In a week since the prelaunch of Duncan Court in Hatfield, more than 100 of the flats, ranging in price from R629 000 to R1,7-million for a luxury two-bedroomed loft apartment, have been sold. The record sales, secured within a week, confirmed the shortage of quality student accommodation in the cosmopolitan suburb of Hatfield, according to developers of the buildings, Costa Zervas Projects. According to the developers, who ran feasibility studies in the area, the demand outlined in the reports as well as Duncan Court in Hatfield.

projected forecasts had been exceeded. “Buyers purchasing for their children immediately identified with the safe and ideal location near Tuks that is also in easy walking distance to the new Hatfield Gautrain station,” said Kent Gush, managing director of Kent Gush Properties, who are selling the units. Gush said investors with a view to purchase-to-let had been quick on the uptake, as a gross rental yield of between 0,8% and 0,9% could be expected. Targeting the student market and young professionals by offering a safe, convenient and lock-up-and-go lifestyle, Duncan Court will comprise 11 storeys of 484 units, including studio apartments, one and two bedroom apartments as well as one and two bedroom loft units on the upper levels.


Winnie Venter sê haar sleutel tot ’n lang lewe is lekker open-wakker oefening.

Oefening hou dié pensioenaris jonk Ané Roux Op 85 is Winnie Venter van La Montagne nie ’n alledaagse pensioenaris nie. Sy wikkel haar lyf al 36 jaar op die maat van kloppende musiek met aërobiese oefening en is oortuig dat dit oefeninge is wat haar jonk hou. “Ek en my man is baie aktief en die oefeninge is so lekker dat ons elke slag teruggaan vir nog. Ons moet na onsself omsien en deur oefeninge kry ons dit reg om die spiere aan die gang te hou,” het Venter aan Rekord gesê. Verder is sy ook oortuig dat aërobiese oefening die sleutel tot ’n lang lewe is. Dit is ook ideaal vir ander lede van die

ouer garde wat nie noodwendig kans sien vir draf of fietsry nie. “Ons leer steeds nuwe oefeninge, ons werk met toue en rekke en dit help om ons hartklop sterk en gesond te hou. En daar is nie baie stremming op die wat nie so fiks is nie. Tot my 91-jarige man doen saam oefeninge,” het sy bygevoeg. Sy erken dat sy reeds 36 jaar lank aërobiese oefeninge doen. “Toe ek met hierdie oefeninge begin het, was dit vir my baie lekker. Ek geniet dit om saam met ander te kuier en ek is beslis ook nie die enigste ouer vrou in die klas nie. Aërobiese oefeninge is lekker loslit, hou mens aan die beweeg, oefen die spiere en verseker ’n gesonde lewe.”


Youngsters receive blades Ané Roux Paralympic silver medallist, Arnu Fourie, is a man who has picked himself up and applied his mind to be successful and competitive no matter what life throws his way. Partnering with rugby hero Morné Steyn, Fourie has launched a campaign to supply young amputees with blades to help them make their athletic dreams come true. Fourie and Steyn are sharing the message of how determination and practice would bring rewards. Fourie recently also involved Oasis Water’s Water 4 Good campaign, in helping youngsters who need prosthetic legs to walk again. “Without partnerships like these many children will not be able to receive new legs because it is very expensive and they grow out of them quickly. It is thanks to campaigns like Water 4 Good that private individuals and companies can work together to give our children opportunities,” Steyn said. Fourie related how he had lost his leg in a motor boating accident. “When I lost my leg I had no idea on how to move forward in my life. I was not going to play rugby with just one leg. That dream was shattered,” he said. Fourie then met with Oscar Pistorius who gave him an old pair of his blades. With practice, Fourie got better and faster and today he is a world record holder and Olympic medallist. His message to the youngsters

receiving their new blades is simple. “Keep on practising, accept your blades as your new legs and never give up on achieving your goals.” For Brendon Menezes it was

a big occasion as he received his blades. “I hope I can run just as fast as Arnu. I also want to participate in the Olympics,” the young man said.



Man with passion tackles long walk to Cape Town Ron Sibiya A brave Johann Odendaal will celebrate the festive season by walking 1 800km from Pretoria to Cape Town. Odendaal, who has a passion for adventure, looks forward to raise awareness and money for the QuadPara Association (Qasa) at the end of an 1 800km walk from Pretoria to Cape Town. “I hope to raise R5-million,� Odendaal said. He began his tough journey at the Union Buildings on Saturday and it will end at Jan van Riebeeck’s statue, close to the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town in two months time. The money will go to the Qasa’s road and awareness campaigns. Qasa is a charity organisation that raises awareness and money for quadruplegics and paraplegics in South Africa. They strive to prevent spinal cord injury, as well as protect and promote the interest of people with mobility impairments by formulating a national policy and strategy to develop and ensure the full potential and quality of their lives. Odendaal believes he would face serious challenges along the journey, including heat and rain, however, he feels equal to the

Community happy about streetlights AnĂŠ Roux At a project hand over recently in ward 79, it was announced that 50 new streetlights were to be erected in January 2013 between Nellmapius Drive and Boeing Street. “This is excellent news for the

community,� commented ward councillor Vickey Bosch who had received numerous calls from residents asking for streetlights. “This dark stretch of road is notorious for hijackings and muggings. Hopefully the new streetlights will go a long way towards discouraging crime in the area.�

CSIR presents soccer event to boost youth The recent wet weather definitely didn’t dampen the spirits of the 72 young soccer players that took part in the CSIR’s first u.12 soccer tournament. The event included motivational talks by former Banyana Banyana captain, Simphiwe Dludlu and Amatuks player, Mpho Maruping. Both speakers reminded the players how important it was to work hard, remain focused and that anything was possible. All were important messages for the players who formed part of developmental teams comprising of the Mamelodi Tuks

Team, Superstrikers from Nellmapius, Tsamaya from Pretoria East and Thiba from Kwa-Mhlanga. CSIR’s Wellness, Sports and Recreation manager, Bianca Filmalter, indicated that there were two aims for the event, firstly to expose young people from various communities to the CSIR and to contribute towards positive youth development through sport. “By participation in team sport, young people learn about the importance of key values such as honesty, teamwork, fair play, respect for themselves and for others,” she said.

Five-year-old collects jeans for charity

Thiba from Kwa-Mhlanga coached by Phillemon Monareng was announced as the winning team.

Robyn Florence (5) from Moreleta Park collected 66 pairs of jeans for the Rekord Jeans 5000 project. She collected jeans for all ages through Enoch Nursery School which she attends, and from her family and friends. Florence said she was really happy with what she had done for people less fortunate than herself. “God blesses me and I am trying to bless other people too.” Photo: Nthabiseng Madumo




Editorial COMMENT A myriad of problems lambastes the average South African these days. These problems range from economic, political, poverty, crime and many more. With all these issues weighing on everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds it is easy to forget the one big problem our society still faces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the scourge of HIV/Aids. World Aids day is celebrated on 1 December. Twenty ďŹ ve years and millions of lives into the Aids endemic, World Aids day is an opportune moment

for us all to take stock and reďŹ&#x201A;ect on both our achievements and our failures in dealing with its continuing devastating impact. Over the past quarter of a century more than 25 million people have died as a result of HIV/Aids and today 40 million people live with HIV. One of the greatest challenges we face is the Aids related stigma and discrimination, which forms a real barrier to stop the expansion of this disease. The reality of Aids to South Africans was brought to light recently by a report on the projected shortage of teachers over the next ďŹ ve years in South Africa. According to the report, South Africa faces a shortage of up to 94 000 teachers by 2015. Among the many reasons for this projected shortage is the effects of Aids-related illnesses. The report released by the Education, Training and Development Practices, Seta, warns that HIV/Aids is already taking its toll on teacher numbers. Two hundred out of 500 SA National Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) members who volunteered for Aids tests between October 2007 and September 2008 tested HIV-positive. According to the report most of the 250 Sadtu members who died in Gauteng in 2007 died of Aids-related illnesses. The report also warns that we are entering a critical period where those who had been infected were now dying. Education is of paramount importance in the battle against HIV/Aids.

Mense help nog ander Verligte moeder skryf: Ek en my dogter het onlangs by Ala Turka-restaurant in Irene Village vir haar 21e verjaardag, net ma en dogter, gaan uiteet. Die aand was ongelooďŹ&#x201A;ik spesiaal en toe ons ry het ons geen benul gehad op watter noot die aand sou eindig nie. Ongelukkig maak moeder die oordeelsfout en ry die Rietvleidampad, dit is mos korter en daar is een groot storm. My ou Polo van 14 jaar het my nog nooit in die steek gelaat langs die pad nie, maar ja, dit is toe mos net met hierdie reĂŤn en water, dat my kar besluit om tot die dood te hik en snik, op die hoek van Rietvleidamstraat en Delmasweg - nie â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n plek vir twee vroue om ongeveer 22:15 te gaan staan nie.

Nie twee sekondes daarna nie verdwyn hy in die lang grasse en daar stop my redding. â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Man en vrou help my die motor uit die pad stoot en toe hulle hoor ek wag vir my versekering se nooddienste, besluit hul om saam te wag. Ek kan nie genoeg dankie sĂŞ vir hul noodbystand nie. Hulle het aanhoudend gebel en my op hoogte gehou en seker gemaak ek is veilig. My barmharmtige Samaritane het my motor aan die gang gekry en beloof om my te volg tot ek veilig by die huis is. Dankie dat julle soveel omgee vir jul medemens om stil te hou, my te hulp te snel, moontlik te red van skelms en gesorg het dat ek en my dogter veilig die huis bereik... Mense soos julle is min en ek het nie besef daar is nog sulke mense nie.

Dankie, mens-mense

Worried about plans Christo van den Heever writes: I refer to Rekord of 30 November and the article regarding the proposed development on Atterbury Road. As resident of the adjacent Garsfontein Securapark area to the proposed development area, I would hereby like to support councillor Karen Meyer in all the concerns she had raised on behalf of the residents. I am not opposed to further residential or commercial development however, the Tshwane metro should listen to its residents and not ignore the key planning principle of balancing land-use development with infrastructure development and the protection of the environment. This proposed development is almost an extension of the Menlyn Node application already approved by the metro. The metro must present a plan that is workable for all. It is true that some residents will support this proposed development and I am sure that these residents will be the ones whose houses will be bought and demolished to make way for an 11 storey block

of flats, a three storey building for shops and a seven storey block for offices. Only two groups will benefit from this development: the residents selling their houses to the developers, afterwards they will relocate to other areas and will not be affected by the proposed development at all and secondly, the developers. I am not prepared to support an 11 storey development, looking down onto my property, invading my privacy and negatively effecting the value of my property, not to mention the effect on infrastructure and traffic this development will have on the area. A huge concern of course, is the fact that nobody knew about this proposed development and that us residents only heard about this by chance. Councillor Karen Meyer was elected as ward councillor for ward 44 in which this proposed development falls, it is therefore her responsibility to raise the concerns of the 14 000 residents living in ward 44 and to protect the rights of all the residents of the area. I therefore support Meyer all the way.

Eiendomsmark geteiken Me. Weber van Pretoria-Noord skryf: Daar is deesdae ’n nuwe tendens weens swak verkope in die eiendomsmark en banke wat toenemend strenger maatreëls met keuring van leningaansoekers ingestel het. Sogenaamde voornemende kopers doen hulleself as potensiële kopers met ’n goeie kredietrekord voor. Besit van eiendom word geneem en ’n koopkontrak onderhewig aan standaard voorwaardes, onder andere betaling van huur, lening en lewering van waarborge, word gesluit. Allerhande beloftes word gemaak oor betaling van huur tot dit by die daad kom. Dan word verskonings aangevoer dat die koopkontrak gebrekkig is en dat verkopers nie die kopers van dienste voorsien

nie. Die kopers verbreek dan eensydig bepalings van die koopkontrak en weier om te betaal. Hulle beroep hulle dan op die behuisingswet van 1988 en verklaar hulleself eenvoudig as plakkers. Intussen strek die vindingrykheid van sogenaamde kopers (plakkers) veel verder as net om gratis verblyf te bekom. Gratis krag en water is ook op die spyskaart. Hekke word deur die moderne plakkers met slotte gesluit sodat die regmatige eienaar geen toegang tot sy eiendom het nie. Intussen is my hande afgekap en bevind ek my in ’n doodloopstraat aangesien die Tshwane-metro nie antwoorde op my vrae kan verskaf nie.

Geskok oor die dierebrief Anti-barbarisme skryf: Na aanleiding van verlede week se skokkende brief dat troeteldiere net soos beeste geëet kan word, wil ek net vra hoekom dan nie maar ook die pensioenarisse eet nie? Hulle is net ’n las.

Vegetarian gets agreement here KC van den Berg: I have to agree with Vegetarian in a sense. Any meat is fair game if you are a meat eater (except certain species protected by law), yet there are some other human factors to consider if your conscience allows you. Would Vegetarian like to have his or her pet budgie to be plucked, cooked and eaten or his or her pet hamster or boa constrictor skinned, braaied and eaten? It is all about perception. In Asian countries certain breeds of dogs and snakes are bred to supply restaurants with a delicacy, yet they would refuse to eat what we consider as normal consumption meat such as lamb, chicken and beef. In some of those countries these animals are seen as holy or sacred, as we find it repulsive to eat what we consider as pets.

Ook kwaad oor dierebrief Marieta de Beer skryf: Net ’n vraag aan die anonieme skrywer ‘Vegetarian’ aangaande om verlore diere beskikbaar te stel vir hawelose mense as ’n bron van voedsel. Daardie dier het in ’n liefdevolle huis gewoon. Harteloos om so te eindig. Hoekom is jy te bang om jou naam bekend te maak? Jy is ’n siek persoon om sulke dinge kwyt te raak.

Dink net hoeveel belastinggeld sal dan bespaar word. My antwoord aan jou is dat jy dringend hulp nodig het. Los my troeteldiere uit. Ek sal my troeteldiere met my lewe beskerm.

oop die waardestelssel van die gesin aafgedruk het. ’n Pa oof ma of ’n ouma en ooupa by wie om raad aaangeklop kon word. Dit is mense wat in hhul bejaardheid nie in ’’n staat van niksdoen vvroegtydig doodgaan nnie. Trouens, dit is ’n eer, voorreg en seën om hulle by jou te hê, want hul warmte en insig is ’n rigsnoer vir ’n kind en die trooslappie vir kleinkinders. Dit is tragies dat ons samelewing die verpligting van die versorging van ouers aan instansies soos ouetehuise verpand het. Daar is natuurlik ’n saak uit te maak dat sulke instansies in baie gevalle beter toegerus is om oumense met Altzheimers en kranklikhede beter te kan versorg. Tog is dit ook waar dat te dikwels die senior burgers as ’t ware op die sypaadjie geparkeer word sodat vryheid van beweging van die kinders nie aan bande gelê word nie. Die een keer ’n maand of jaar se besoek is genoeg om die gewete te sus met die verweer: “Ja, ek betaal mos die rekening van die ouetehuis en ek besoek haar mos gereeld. Dis mos genoeg.” Nee meneer, dis nie genoeg nie. Die eensaamheid en gevoel van verstotenheid van baie van dié wat in die vakansie- en Kersfeestyd by ’n ouetehuis moet sit, is skreiend. Dit is vir dié rede wat ’n mens net dankie kan sê en die hoed kan lig vir instansies, organisasies en individue wat spesiale pogings aanwend om dié tyd van die jaar ook ons oues van dae gekoester te laat voel.




Laat die kindertjies na my toe kom... Natashia Slabbert Kinders van regoor Pretoria het onlangs al dansende, springende, klappende, laggende, gillende en jillende die ATKV Kinder Christusfees bygewoon. DiĂŠ prettige kinderfees het Sondag by Kerksondermure in Centurion plaasgevind. Kinders jonk en oud het regdeur die

aanbieding behoorlik baljaar terwyl kunstenaars soos Willie en die Wenspan, Clemens en die Kruiskyk Kewers en Ghapi gunstelinge soos Loof Hom met die tromme, My God is so groot en Hy hou die hele wĂŞreld in Sy hand gesing het. Oom Karoolus en Lente het ook vir groot vermaak gesorg met staaltjies, grappies en liedjies spesiaal vir die jongspan. Willie en die Wenspan sing die liedjie 100% vir Jesus.

Lente en Oom Karoolus praat met die kinders oor Jesus.

Sterre laat drome waar word Mercia Rand

Paul Smit, voorsitter van die Sharks-ondersteunersklub van Pretoria, Dan Lombard en Anthea Kuntz.

Dit is nie net verskietende sterre wat drome laat waar word nie. Die Sharks-ondersteunersklub van Pretoria het tydens hul jaarlikse Ontbyt met die Sterre, reuse suksesse met hul geldinsameling ten bate van die Reik na ’n Droomstigting behaal. Sporthelde, sepiesterre, sangers en ander onvoorwaardelike sterre het by Pebble Rock-gholfbaan se klubhuis ’n heerlike ontbyt saam met gaste wat hul harte (en beursies) groot oopgemaak het, nie net

’n fantastiese kuieroggend te geniet nie, maar ook gehelp om terminale siek kinders se drome te bewaarheid. Die sterre het die geleentheid gekry om hul kindertyddrome te deel. Sommige het waar geword, met ander het die lewe ’n heel ander koers met hulle ingeslaan. Ongelukkig het soveel siek kinders nie die kans om te sien of hul drome wel sal waar word nie en daarom maak Reik na ’n Droom dit moontlik om hierdie drome vroeg in die jongmense se lewens

te bewaarheid. Vir sommige mense soos Dan Lombard, wat daarvan gedroom het om eendag in die groen en goud op die rugbyveld uit te draf, het ’n fratsongeluk tydens ’n oefening sy lewe soos handomkeer verander. Hy is vandag ’n kwadrupleeg en droom nou ander drome: om eendag ’n televisieskeidsregter te word. Die ontbyt is met ’n veiling van pragtige skilderye en kunswerke afgesluit. Die Sharks-ondersteunersklub van Pretoria het sowat R20 000 ingesamel.

Residents must be aware of meter hoax Metro warns against a company that poses as the middleman between the customer and the metro Natalie Grobler The Tshwane metro has issued a stern warning to all its residents regarding a prepaid meter conversion scam. According to Nomasonto Ndlovu, spokesperson for the metro, the swindlers were apparently riding on Executive Mayor, Kgosientso Ramokgopa’s speech that he had made during his State of the City Address where he said that the city would embark on an initiative called Security of Revenue Project. This project entails a full rollout of prepaid electricity meters throughout the entire Pretoria region. “The fraudsters are luring customers into paying between R2 000 and R5 500 to have prepaid meters installed. They convince customers to pay them so that they could approach the metro on their behalf to have the meters installed. They then disappear without a trace.” Ndlovu warned residents that the fraudulent company circulated their advertisements via e-mail. She said they wanted to forewarn residents not to make use of the company, as it was not contracted by the metro itself. “We want to caution residents that no customer would be able to buy electricity tokens should their meters be converted privately.” She said that the metro was by law the sole distributor of electricity in the Pretoria region and therefore the resi-

dents were advised to engage the metro directly through properly established offices except in cases where the connection type dictated that there should be submetering installed. “It should be noted that the energy department has never before indicated that the rollout of prepaid meters would be at no cost to the customer. It is the cost for retrofitting the current installed conventional meters that would not be for the customer’s account, but for the metro’s.” Ndlovu said that the project would be phased in from region to region, as the metro did not have the finances to complete the project in one stage. She said the project would only be completed in 2015. Residents can only apply for the installation of the prepaid meters at the following metro offices: - Mamelodi municipal offices at customer care counter 6 and 7. - Eersterust municipal offices at counter 1. - BKS, room counter 8, CBD, 373 Pretorius Street. - Centurion municipal offices at counter 9. - Atteridgeville electricity depot. - Akasia municipal offices at customer care. - Rosslyn electricity depot at customer care. - Soshanguve community centre, Block FW at customer care.

Honest man returns phone Nthabiseng Madumo A small act of honesty has left a Pretoria woman with renewed faith in human kind. Lesego Rikhotso, a supervisor at the West End Theatre, became Jacqui Logan’s hero after he found her cellphone on a chair at the theatre at the Pretoria show grounds. Logan attended her granddaughter, from Laerskool Garsfontein’s school concert at the theatre a few weeks back. “When I got home after the concert I looked for my phone and thought I might have left it in the vehicle. The next morning I went to check in the vehicle but it was not there,” Logan explained. She then called her cellphone number and Rikhotso answered the phone. He told her he had found her phone on a chair in the theatre and she could come and get it. “I went to Rikhotso immediately. I was stunned by his honesty. After a hug, tears and a small reward of appreciation I took a photo of him and bade him goodbye. To all those people who are negative about the country, there are still honest people out there and Rikhotso is one of them.” Rikhotso is a supervisor at the theatre and really appreciated the treatment that Logan had given him. “There are not many people who would act the way that she did.

Ry trein dié vakansie Kersvader het sy rendiere uitgespan en besluit om vanjaar eerder met die trein te ry. Hy het die vriendelike uitnodiging van Friends of the Rail aanvaar en besluit om 9 Desember en 16 Desember van Hermannstad na Cullinan en terug te ry met ’n wavrag vol geskenke vir die kleingoed. Die immer gewilde stoomtreinritte na Cullinan lok jaarliks heelwat stoomtreinentoesiaste. Trouens, daar is selfs mense wat spesiaal van oorsee kom om die ystergevaarte sissend op sy spore te sien en dan boeke na te slaan om te weet wanneer dit gebou is, waar dit oral gebruik is en wat die steenkoolverbruik van die lokomotief is. Vir die kers- en vakansieseisoen het die Friends of the Rail ’n heerlike en bekostigbare program uitgewerk om mense wat met Jan Tuisbly se karretjie ry ’n geleentheid te bied om vet pret te hê. Die treinritte na Cullinan vertrek van Friends of the Rail se “Loftus Versveld” stasie om 08:00 en vertrek 15:00 weer van Cullinan. Vir diegene met ’n stukkende beursie het die organisasie ook ’n spesiale Tshwane Xplore treinrit aangelê waardeur ’n groot deel van Pretoria teen R100 per treinrit ontdek kan word. Die klub het verder ook spesiale nuwighede aangelê soos ’n avontuur en ’n spapakket wat op Vrydae sal plaasvind. Vir jaareindfunksies of korporatiewe groepe het die klub Vrydae, Saterdae en Sondae ook spesiale treinritte teen spesiale afslagpryse. Die Friends of the Rail is ’n nie-winsgewende organisasie wat slegs deur

hierdie stoomtreinritte kan bestaan en die historiese belang van stoom in die vervoer-geskiedenis daardeur kan bewaar. Volle besonderhede by www. friendsoftherail. com.

Make-over brings magic back to Sterland Mercia Rand Mention the word ‘Sterland’ to almost any middle-aged Pretoria citizen and the reaction is mostly the same: nostalgia about a once magical cinema complex in Sunnyside. Being the flagship of Ster-

Kinekor, Sterland has recently undergone a major renovation and upgrading face-lift. A total of R53million was spent to replace worn out seats, upgrade to digital sound systems and projectors and overall beautify this once neglected jewel of Pretoria. Rekord was invited to the grand

reopening of Sterland and the premiére of Skyfall, the new James Bond action movie. The overall feeling was - Sterland has been restored to its former glory. The sound, seating and movie projection are on par with the best in the world.

The rejuvenation of the Pretoria central business district has received yet another boost with a multimillion rand revamp of Sterland, which has been an integral part of the city’s entertainment culture since the initial opening of the complex in 1969. When completed, the complex will boast the largest number of cinema seats within one complex in the country. With secure paid-for parking and optimal security measures in place, the complex is aimed mainly at the student market. Sterland, situated in Arcadia at the corner of Pretorius and Beatrix streets, has been the recipient of a number of facelifts, most notably in 1991 and again last year. A total of R53-million had been spent on the upgrade of the wellknown Pretoria landmark. The newly refurbished complex

was launched by Ster-Kinekor on 30 November, bringing the city’s entertainment icon in line with world class movie technology. Although Sterland in recent years had been catering to patrons living in and around Pretoria’s CBD, they believe that with the state of the art technology installed, they would now reach campuses in and around Pretoria and well as satellite sites such as the Soshanguve, Mamelodi and Hatfield campuses. “Because our new look is of world class quality, it will appeal to any market. If we look at the surrounding areas and tertiary institutions however, market wise, our core focus is the student audience,” Ster-Kinekor told Rekord. The company said it was working closely with mall management to ensure optimal security on site during and after show times. “Sterland Cinema has had no (crime) incident in the last year and we hope that through combined

efforts, that will remain the case,” Ster-Kinekor said. Sterland opened its doors more than 40 years ago and at the time, could lay claim to the only ice rink in Pretoria and attracted visitors from all over the city. Sterland boasts the largest number of cinema seats within one single South African complex - 2 418 across 11 cinemas - the largest of which can seat 561 cinemagoers. The complex will also offer audiences enhanced sound quality for both 2D and 3D features augmenting the movie-going experience. “The newly renovated site is a tell-tale sign that not only is SterKinekor committed to bringing audiences across the country a top quality cinema experience, but that audiences themselves are demanding to see more movies more often and in a great environment,” said Fiaz Mohamed, CEO of Ster-Kinekor. Heather Hurter het seker gemaak dat daar ’n Kersfeesgevoel tydens die Toy Run was.

REKORD OOS VRYDAG 7 DESEMBER 2012 As your baby’s pallet becomes more accepting of different foods it is time to start introducing protein, which can be done from six months onwards.

Plan your baby’s menu Planning your baby’s menu with care right from the very beginning can make a vital contribution to its healthy development. By introducing solid foods that fuel their growth and contribute to their overall sense of wellbeing, mothers can help establish a positive relationship with food for their little ones well into adulthood. With this in mind, how do mothers who want only the best for their precious bundles, give their babies the right start, as they begin exploring the delicious and ever so yummy world of food? Renowned paediatric dietician, Claire McHugh, shares her top tips for introducing your baby to the foods that will kickstart their optimal growth. While introducing solids to baby may at first seem daunting, Claire sets out an easy-to-follow plan on how best to lay the foundation for a healthy relationship with food for your baby. Yummy in baby’s tummy “It goes without saying that nutrition is vital to the healthy growth, wellbeing and brain development of your little one. For this reason it is important to give weaning your baby the attention it deserves. Whether baby has been breast-fed as recommended by the World Health Organisation, or has enjoyed a menu of formula, the period around six months is an important window during which time baby can learn that the world of solid foods is an exciting one to explore,” Claire explained. Mothers are advised to look for the following signs to assess whether their baby is ready to expand their menu: - If your baby is no longer satisfied with their milk feeds then consider the introduction of solid foods. - Your baby should be sitting with support and able to lift herself on her elbows when lying on her stomach. - When baby has doubled her birth weight, her diet is ready for a change. - Babies also begin to show an interest in food when mom and dad are enjoying a meal or snack together. Menu planner Claire recommends an easy to digest option for your baby’s first meal. “I advise

mothers to start your baby on plain rice cereal that is mixed with baby’s milk to a texture that can pour off the spoon. Not only does it taste familiar, but also rice cereals are normally fortified with iron and we know that baby’s iron levels are generally depleted by the time she is six months old. While some believe starchy vegetables offer baby the best start, it is important to remember that this particular food group is not rich in the iron that your baby needs,” said Claire. As Claire points out, it is important for your baby’s first meal to be prepared when she is not tired and not too hungry so that her first experience of food is a happy one. “As soon as baby has accepted rice cereal, start introducing starchy veggies such as pumpkin, butternut, sweet potato and squash. New foods can be introduced every two to three days provided that baby has not demonstrated an allergic reaction. Fruit can be added to baby’s menu shortly thereafter with bananas, puréed apples and pears making the ‘daily specials list’ so to speak.” Meaty menu As your baby’s pallet becomes more accepting of different foods it is time to start introducing protein, which can be done from six months onwards. Chicken livers are an excellent source of protein and iron and with their smooth consistency your baby is more likely to take to this meaty meal. Lamb shank placed in a slow cooker until it falls off the bone is another good option for your baby. Vegetarian sources of protein like beans and lentils are also suitable and easy to blend into dishes. Snackety snack “As you gradually introduce more food groups, increase the texture of your baby’s meals and lessen her milk feeds, you’ll find that a daily menu of breakfast, lunch and supper with two snacks in between is in your baby’s best interest. Snacks are important because your baby’s tummy is small and cannot hold the volume of food she needs to fuel the high energy levels required for her rapid growth. Try to include a starch, protein and fruit or vegetable in each meal and constantly progress with texture” advised Claire.

Check credentials before enrolling at institution Matric pupils are excited because the their schooling is finished, but with this excitement comes anxiety and stress when they have to choose how and where to further their studies. Here are a few tips by Dr Felicity Coughlan to prospective students preparing to register at a tertiary institution: Check that the institution is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training A list of registered private higher education institutions is available on the website of the DHET, as well as the SAQA website. Private institutions are also required to display their registration certificate in their reception. Never accept the mere presence of a so-called registration number as proof of registration. Check that the qualification is accredited - if that is what you require Note that there is a difference between quality assurance and accreditation of qualifications. It is possible that a registered private higher education institution’s programmes may not all be fully accredited or registered higher education programmes.

This may impact on your ability to register for further studies if that is your ambition. Make sure you know what you are signing up for. The status of programmes themselves can be checked on the SAQA website, but some caution need to be exercised here as this register is not always 100% up to date and there is a delay between processes. The best approach is to ask the institution concerned for evidence of registration and accreditation, which they should be able to provide without hesitation. Investigate the reputation of an institution - in person and online Visit campuses and speak to existing students, especially those who are enrolled in, or have completed the course you intend to take. Ensure that the institution and course will meet your specific needs. Private and public institutions are subject to the same quality assurance requirements and often offer similar services and facilities. Equally, similar challenges appear in various guises in the private and public sphere.

Prospective students are advised to do their homework about the institution into which they want to enroll for further studies.

Beware of many pitfalls of the office party

Avoid excessive alcohol consumption at the end-of-year party

As the end of the year quickly approaches, conversations around the water coolers inevitably reflect on who did what at last year’s office party, and what can be expected at this year’s function. “While companies encourage their staff to enjoy themselves at the hard earned year-end party, individuals need to take personal responsibility for their actions and be cautious not to over-indulge,” the spokesperson for the Industry for Responsible Alcohol Use (ARA) Adrian Botha warned. Excessive consumption of alcohol especially, could lead to a loss of inhibitions resulting in inappropriate commentary and actions as well as risky sexual behaviour, all of which could negatively affect personal and professional reputation. Botha advised that bad behaviour could jeopardise an employee’s job or career growth. He warned that bad mouthing the boss to anyone within earshot could even

prejudice next year’s salary or performance review. What may appear funny or entertaining the previous night could only add to the awkward atmosphere the following day. Additionally, in larger companies, departments who do not necessarily work together regularly, could be thrown into a social situation where first impressions count. How you behave at this event could hamper your chances when applying for a position in another department that could affect career advancement. “The focus does not need to be on abstinence. It is really about knowing your personal limits. While legal alcohol limits apply to everyone, alcohol affects people differently and while John from accounting may be able to down a six-pack and carry on a conversation as if he had been sipping only water, you may feel tipsy after only one glass of wine.”


Gift suggestions for the festive season It is not always easy to choose the perfect gift for Christmas and for some people it might even be a nerve-wracking experience. That is why Rekord shopped till we dropped to ensure that none of our readers need to enter the festive season unprepared. Not only will readers find a variety of gift ideas that would soothe the gift seeking blues. Here are some gift-wrapping tips. Coloured tissue paper - tissue can make any gift seem more festive. Collect several colours to use when lining gift boxes, to cushion delicate

items, inside cello bags, or even to use as gift paper. Avoid buying a few sheets at a time, as these are particularly expensive. Order in bulk or browse paper warehouses. Making gift tags - craft and stationery stores have blank tags in a variety of shapes. You can also make your own tags in any size or shape using coloured paper or cardstock. Scalloped edge scissors will also help create pretty looking tags. Recycled greeting cards - cut off the fronts of beautiful holiday cards

and attach them to your gift using double-faced tape. The picture on the card will dress up your gift and add a bit of colour and style. Use a simple cording as ribbon. Wired ribbon - wired ribbons are widely available. Most offer beautiful colours of sheers with the convenience of wired edges. Making a package look gorgeous is a snap with wired ribbon. Trim the ends of the wired ribbon on a slant or in a V-shaped swallowtail cut. Gift bags - plain, coloured, with or without handles are terrific for

giving items that do not have a box or for gifts that include multiple items. Alternative gift papers - many people like the look of using home made wrapping paper. This can be done in brown craft paper, using comics as wrapping paper, origami papers for small gifts, wallpaper scraps, old scarves or even pieces of fabric. Curling ribbon - this inexpensive narrow ribbon can be curled with the blade of a knife or scissors. It can be somewhat of a fuss to use, but is colourful and fun for children’s gifts.

Laerskoolleerlinge palm dux-toekennings Kyle Matthews (links) en Mioné Heyneke, van Laerskool Pretoria-Oos, het die hoogste akademiese toekennings naamlik die dux-toekennings ingepalm. Hulle het verskeie medaljes en koopbewyse vir boeke saam met die eretitel ontvang. Matthews is aangewys as die beste presteerder in Engels, wiskunde, en ekonomie en Heyneke het vaktoekennings en medaljes in Afrikaans, sosiale wetenskap, lewensoriëntering en natuurwetenskap ontvang.

Menlopark-stoeiers bring vyf medaljes terug Drie stoeiers van Laerskool Menlopark het uitsonderlik presteer tydens ’n internasionale toernooi waaraan hulle deelgeneem het. Jaco du Toit (graad 3), Ruben Pienaar (graad 4) en Obed Ngoepe (graad 7) was deel van die Suid-Afrikaanse Streek Uitnodigingspan wat aan toernooie in Duitsland en Nederland deelgeneem het. Die Menlo-stoeiers het vyf medaljes gewen. Pienaar het ’n goue en bronsmedalje gewen, Du Toit twee silwermedaljes en Ngoepe ’n silwermedalje. Die Suid-Afrikaanse streekspan het in Nederland die eerste plek behaal en in Duitsland tweede geëindig. Stoeiers van regoor Europa en Rusland het aan die toernooi deelgeneem.

Pro Arte helps out Ané Roux In the spirit of good will, Pro Arte Alphen Park decided to donate matric text books to the newly established Gonubie High School situated just outside East London. Gonubie High School will have its first matrics in 2013. Currently the school offers grade 8 to 11. With the assistance of Elliott International’s Pretoria branch the donated text books will be transported to Gonubie High School free of charge, doing justice to their slogan: The easy way to move. The ‘great trek’ will commence on 5 December, when Elliott International will fetch the 16 boxes of textbooks at Pro Arte Alphen Park. With the syllabus changing from the National Curriculum Statement (NCS) to Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (Caps) for the matrics of 2014, the NCS text books are not printed anymore and the Eastern Cape Department of Education cannot help Gonubie High School with text books. Pro Arte Alphen Park mathematical literacy teacher, Ilse Ackermann, learnt of the predicament through her daughter, Zana, who teaches at Gonubie High School. Zana is a proud old Pro Arte pupil. They contacted Johann Güldenpfennig, principal of Pro Arte, who agreed to help. “It was difficult for the school to obtain books for the old syllabus, which are used for one year only. With the donated books from Pro Arte, the new generation of matrics for 2013 will have a chance to better their lives through education,” said Pro Arte media spokesperson Ina Grobler.






Kallie Kriel, Uitvoerende hoof van AfriForum verwelkom die bejaardes van vier ouetehuise voor die vertoning van die nuwe Afrikaanse rolprent Pretville, wat Vrydag in teaters begin draai het.

Bejaardes kyk Afrikaanse fliek Du P Martins Van breinaalde, kosresepte, skete en kwale was daar geen sprake nie. Miskien is hulle al ’n bietjie lank in die tand, maar gewis voor in die koor en heel byderwets as dit by die polsende musiek van die vyftigerjare kom. Só kan ’n mens die geleentheid opsom. Nagenoeg 130 bejaardes van vier ouetehuise was gaste van AfriForum en die Eldoraigne-tak van die Vrouelandbou-unie se projek ‘Vat ’n Tannie Fliek toe’ om die nuwe rolprent Pretville in Centurion te gaan sien. ‘Vat ’n tannie fliek toe’ is in November 2011 van stapel gestuur. Dit bied die geleentheid vir bejaardes, wat maar eina-eina aan hul pensioengeld moet knyp, die geleentheid om soos jong mense sonder geldelike bekommernis ’n Afrikaanse rolprent te sien en op die koop toe met koffie en ’n kolwyntjie of twee getrakteer te word. Dat hulle dit geniet het, is gewis. Lank voor die fliek begin het, het die vroue (en mans), miskien nou wel nie so vinnig as in die jong dae nie, by die fliek opgedaag. Sommige was opgedollie vir die geleentheid. Hier en daar kon jy die ou-wêreldse Eau-de-Cologne wat vir die geleentheid snoep gebruik is, ruik. Ander weer het gereken ’n fliek is ’n fliek en ek gaan soos ek is. Toe die teater se deure open het die jongere van senior burgers al geselsende ingestap. Die meer gevorderde in jare het met knoetserige hande die looprame vasgevat en skuifel-skuifel vorentoe gestoot en in ’n ry soos geparkeerde motors een

Colize Luttig, wat die spesiale voorafvertoning van die rolprent vir die bejaardes moontlik gemaak het, saam met Norah Fleuriot van die Margaretha Ackerman-tehuis vir Bejaardes in haar ‘blommekind’-uitrusting en Kallie Kriel, uitvoerende hoof van AfriForum, wat die ‘Vat ’n tannie fliek toe’-projek geïnisieer het.

na die ander in die gangetjie geparkeer. Sommer het, met die eerste note van die rolprent met sy musiek uit die vyftigerjare wat wissel van rock ’n rol tot doo-wop, met kieries saam getok-tok en het sonder inhibisie geskaterlag vir komiese snaakse tonele uit die rolprent. Aan die einde het die bejaardes spontaan handegeklap. Die uitbeweeg uit die teater was stadiger as die ingaan, want na ’n anderhalf uur se sit, was die bene ietwat stram en die opstaan hier en

daar ook maar ’n bietjie sukkel-sukkel. Kallie Kriel, AfriForum se uitvoerende hoof, het voor die aanvang van die rolprent die bejaardes verwelkom en gesê dat dit in belang van Afrikaans is dat Afrikaans met ’n projek soos ‘Vat ’n tannie fliek toe’ ’n hupstoot in die bemarking daarvan kry. Hy het ’n beroep gedoen dat Afrikaanse boeke, rolprente en opvoerings ter wille van die bevordering van Afrikaans ondersteun word.

Solo-album vol woema Verlede maand het Ralph Michielsen die treffersparades soos ’n storm met sy tweede solo-album Die Een getref. Dit is nie verbasend dat Michielsen se nuwe poprock-album so gewild is nie, aangesien hy beskou word as een van die pioniers van Suid-Afrikaanse musiek. Michielsen is ’n ervare musikant wat reeds in die tagtigerjare regoor die land saam met sy orkes, B-Sharp, opgetree het wat later baskitaarspeler en agtergrondsanger vir Steve Hofmeyr was. In 2006 het Michielsen met die album Malpitmuti gedebuteer. Die Een bevat 14 liedjies in Engels en Afrikaans wat ’n bruisende verskeidenheid uitmaak van saamsingtreffers in ’n pop- of rockstyl tot pragballades soos By My. Een van Michielsen se gunstelinge is Sien jou staan, wat hy saam met sy goeie vriend Joe F geskryf het. Michielsen vertel dat hierdie liedjie bedoel is vir lekker langarmdans en sommer net saamsing. Die liedjie Oë van My Kind het reeds ongekende belangstelling op verskeie streekradiostasies ontlok. Michielsen se twee dogters sing hierdie liedjie saam met hom. Die Een is nie net sommer nog ’n doef-doef-CD op die Afrikaanse musiekrak nie, dit is ’n woema-album deur een van die land se heel voorste poprockers.

Kersliedere in drie tale Op 9 Desember sing Manuel Escorcio Kersliedere en ander gewyde liedjies by Pierneef-teater. Daar sal ’n versameling liedjies van verskeie van sy CD’s wees en dit beloof om ’n middag vol rustige Kersmusiek te wees. Manuel sal in Afrikaans, Engels en Portugees sing.

Mimi Coertse will be directing the Bel Canto Ensemble which she also founded.

Rooftop Ensemble tree op Die bekende en immergewilde Rooftop Ensemble hou ’n Kerskonsert op 9 Desember in die Musaion om 15:00. Die groep bestaan uit Marina Botha (sopraan), Annemarie Steenkamp (mezzosopraan) en Tinus Spies (tenoor). Vir hierdie konsert sluit Pierre Malherbe, Deirdre van Schalkwyk en Lascelle Baker by hulle aan. Hulle deel die verhoog met ’n instrumentele ensemble, bestaande uit Lize

Lubbe, Marie Cumming en Ronald Davey, onder leiding van Misha Meyer en Ferdi Rautenbach wat mekaar agter die klawers afwissel. Die gesoute tromspeler, Deo du Plessis, sal ook optree. Die Rooftop Ensemble is bekend vir hul diversiteit en hierdie konsert is geen uitsondering. Die program sluit gewilde werke soos Sleigh Ride en Still, still, still asook Schubert se Psalm 23 vir 4 Soprane in.

Afrikaans in sy are Daar is min dinge wat Rudi Claase nie kan doen nie. Geen wonder die naam van hierdie suksesvolle sanger, liedjieskrywer en platebaas kom bykans op elke toonaangewende Afrikaanse album voor nie en hy is op 7 Desember by die Pierneef-teater te sien. Hy skryf vir meeste van ons land se voorste kunstenaars topverkoper treffers en dit maak Claase trots om in Afrikaans die volk te vermaak. Al is die buitelandse voordeur vir hom oop, is Suid-Afrika beslis waar hy wil woon en werk.

The Bel Canto Ensemble will perform well-known Christmas songs under the personal direction of the founder of the ensemble, Mimi Coertse on 9 December at the Atterbury Theatre. The ensemble consists of six beautiful voices including Louette Johnston, Loveline Madumo, Veramarie Meyer, Jonathan Watkins, Given Mabena and Mziyanda Zita. They will share the stage with 12 other angelic voices and will be accompanied by the gifted pianist, Willem Luitingh. Favourites in the programme include Joy to the World, When a Child is Born, Somerkersfees, Battle Hymn, Oh Holy Night, O Tannenbaum, Adeste Fidelium and Panis Angelicus.

Porsche Cayenne offers strength and style With the physical styling dimensions of an SUV and the performance of a true sports car, the Porsche Cayenne is destined to continue its remarkable success in South Africa. Selling 63 units in October (more than 60% of Porsche SA’s total sales) the Cayenne has firmly entrenched itself in the hearts of those who demand sports car-like performance (a top speed of 261km/h and a horizon-inhaling 0-100km/h figure of 5,7 seconds) and an investment in a nameplate which this year celebrates 60 years in South Africa. In a nutshell – the Cayenne is a fusion of two worlds. The GTS is not merely positioned between the Cayenne S and the Turbo, but is a model with its own distinctive character developed from tip to toe for emotionally charged sportiness. Legendary motoring muscle – with sound effects to match – is provided by the 309kW normally aspirated 4,8-litre V8 linked to active all-wheel drive and a brilliant 8-speed Tiptronic S gearbox. Frontal design elements remain strikingly aggressive with huge cooling air intakes and a distinctive front apron with even more air intakes. Clearly, Porsche engineers have designed a vehicle that will be able to withstand the extreme hot conditions in certain parts of our country during summer. There’s little point to having all this power under your right foot, however, and then be let down by inadequate lights. Relax, the darkest Karoo night will be lit up by the car’s tremendous Bi-Xenon lighting system with integrated dynamic and static cornering lights, speed-dependent driving light control – as well as adverse weather light. It’s a basic design principle that a vehi-

cle of such distinction should not only be powerful and fast, but should also look the part. The GTS does not disappoint in this regard. Special side-skirts and wider wheel arches, enhanced by window frames in high gloss black paint and a dominant roof spoiler round off the visual impact. It’s a powerful and purposeful looking creature – regardless of the angle at which you approach it. Obviously, the heart of the GTS is its magnificent V8, which produces 515Nm of torque from as low as 3,500rpm, but it’s not the sheer power that sets this engine apart. Rather, the way in which this power is delivered. Throttle response is instantaneous and, apart from the company’s flat-six engines, there are few sounds more hair-raisingly thrilling that that of a V8 in full cry. Despite the well-insulated interior, driver and passengers will be able to enjoy the sound experience – courtesy of its twin-flow Sound Symposer system – two acoustic channels terminating in the A-pillars. When the driver activates the Sport button, the channels are opened, directing the sound of the intake pulses into the car’s body cavities – sheer driving bliss. Lower suspension (24 mm) also ensures a more agile cornering capability. Matching the car’s superlative speed is the ability to bring this 2,085kg vehicle to a safe and rapid stop. Front disc brakes are six-piston 360mm diameter units while the rear is equipped with 330mm diameter discs. All calipers are painted red - adding to the car’s visual appeal. The interior features leather as standard – including Alcantara trim. The driver and front seat passenger sit on exclusive eightway electrically

adjustable GTS sports seats, while the rear seats, likewise, offer outstanding side support. The SportDesign steering wheel is also available with an Alcantara cover, but one is left wondering as to how long it will retain its attractive appearance. Options include heated and ventilated seats, four-zone climate control, as well as adaptive cruise control and Lane Change Assist, which uses two radar sensors in the rear bumper to monitor the lanes on the right and left up to 70 metres behind the vehicle – including the blind spots. This is especially useful on motorways and functions in the 30 to 250km/h speed ranges. The optional BOSE sound system includes a total of 14 speakers and an overall output of 585 watts. It will be difficult to choose between the car’s sound system and the enjoyable gruffness of a mighty V8 at work. The Porsche Cayenne occupies, understandably, a leading position in the global market for premium SUVs. Six model variants are available – propelled by either 6or 8-cylinder diesel or petrol engine, in addition to hybrid drive. In fact, three of the six models consume less than 10 litres/100 km. With its 85 litre fuel tank and claimed overall fuel consumption figures

New technology for Mahindra The Mahindra XUV500, which is becoming increasingly popular in South Africa, is now fitted with fuel-saving micro-hybrid technology as standard. The system automatically activates a stop-start operation when the vehicle is at a standstill and the gearbox in neutral. The engine stops after 2,5 seconds and restarts when the driver puts his or her foot on the clutch pedal. A button on the dashboard can be depressed to disengage the system when required. The introduction of this advanced technology, which saves fuel and cuts emissions, is another example of Mahindra South Africa’s ongoing programme of adding value at no additional cost to the customer. Another feature on offer is a

change in the colour of the interiors from beige to black. This switch is the result of customer feedback and underlines the open door policy of the Mahindra SA executives and dealers in listening to customer feedback on product specifications and suggested improvements. The introduction of the sevenseater XUV500 to the range of vehicles marketed by Mahindra SA provided a positive boost for the company’s overall brand image last year, as well as increasing the company’s monthly retail sales significantly, according to the CEO of Mahindra SA, Ashok Thakur. “Prior to the launch of this striking new model at the end of September and its display at the Johannesburg Motor Show in October, our range was largely

populated by vehicles that were aimed more at utility, durability and reliability. The XUV500, with its stylish, feature-packed looks has helped redefine this image to a large extent,” explained Thakur. The XUV500 has been introduced in Australia recently and here too the response has been enthusiastic, aided by the same keen pricing policy applied in SA. Prior to its launch in Australia, the vehicle was subject to the Australian New Car Assessment Programme, where it received a four-star safety rating, which is the highest ever achieved by an Indian vehicle. The next international export markets targeted for this strongselling SUV will be Italy and Chile.

Rekord Motoring Journalist Bernard K Hellberg of 10,7l/100 km, this R983,000 vehicle is worthy of being added to the shopping list of those privileged few who appreciate quality of this nature – and who are set to buy a vehicle renowned for retaining market value.




Ford Kuga confirmed for SA introduction Ford South Africa has confirmed that the all-new Ford Kuga will be available with a 1.6l EcoBoost petrol engine with six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission and a 2.0l TDCi turbo diesel engine with PowerShift automatic transmission. Apart from fuel-efficient engines, the newest compact SUV to join the Ford family will combine striking design and functionality with a rewarding driving experience. Smart technologies like Ford’s voice activated in-car SYNC connectivity system will be available as standard, while features such as Active Park Assist will be available as options on certain models. Using the latest powertrain technologies such as EcoBoost and twin independent camshaft variable timing (Ti-VCT), Ford has given its newest SUV a range of

engines that are capable of high power and high torque while consuming less fuel. The global EcoBoost technology also features turbocharging and directs injection so that the EcoBoost engines can rival the power and performance of a larger engine but at a fraction of the fuel consumption. Further aiding fuel efficiency is the Kuga’s sleeker design. The new model is almost 10% more aerodynamic than the outgoing model, while the Kuga’s Active Grille Shutter system further enhances fuel economy by reducing wind resistance. Kuga will also introduce a ‘smart’ AWD system that pre-emptively reassesses road conditions 20 times faster than it takes to blink an eye, readjusting the AWD power split to give the driver the best blend of handling and traction. A number of advanced safety technologies will also be available as options. Adaptive Cruise Control senses when traffic is slowing, and regulates the vehicle’s speed accordingly. When the traffic clears, it goes back to the vehicle’s pre-set speed. Among the customer-focused features being shown for the first time in South Africa on a Ford product is ‘open sesame’ - a hands-free automatic tailgate, allowing

The all-new Ford Kuga will be available in South Africa early in the new year.

customers to open or close the rear tailgate by simply sweeping a foot under the rear bumper. Using the same motion technology found in today’s video game systems, a gentle kicking motion under the centre

of the rear bumper activates, unlocks and raises the tailgate when the driver has the Kuga key fob. Full details of the line-up, specifications and features will be released closer to the vehicle’s launch in 2013.

Prestigious award for VW employee Volkswagen Group South Africa (VWSA) human resources employee Liza Wilmot has won a prestigious accolade at the 56th gala convention of the HR industry’s professional body, the Institute for People Management (IPM). Wilmot, Volkswagen’s Production Academy manager, received the coveted Human Resources Business Partner of the Year award. With just four awards presented, including CEO of the year, HR director of the

year and branch of the year, Wilmot beat other nominees from around the country who were interviewed by a panel of judges which included academics, HR gurus and politicians. Wilmot said although she was surprised to have made it all the way after being nominated by a colleague, the award was a reflection on her 23-strong team which focuses on training and growing employees on the company’s production plant in Uitenhage. The Production Academy falls under Volkswagen’s Learning Academy, which also covers the areas of leadership, technical, commercial and national sales. Since the inception of the Learning Academy in 2008, Wilmot’s team has helped Volkswagen to vastly improve its overall production positioning within the group globally. “We needed to take our training and development to a new level,” said Wilmot. “To impact positively on the business, a new approach and learning solution was required to develop the right skills, competencies and behaviours.” IPM said the purpose of the HR Business Partner of the Year award was to recognise professionals with a proven track record of excellence in develop-

ing and implementing plans that enable the business strategy. Wilmot said: “It is often tough for HR to be viewed as a strategic business partner in organisations. The award is about recognising where this has successfully happened.” IPM president Raj Seeparsad said the awards represented the cream of the country’s HR crop.

New SUV unveiled in Durban GWM had an impact presence at the recent Durban Motor Show when this Chinese company introduced its brand new H6 SUV to the public for the first time. Hailed as South Africa’s most successful regional motor exhibition, the first Durban Motor Show took place 20 years ago. The show provides an effective and popular platform for motor manufactures to showcase their latest vehicle ranges and interacts with the public each year and GWM is no exception. GWM Gateway, the latest dealership to join GWM’s network of 78, welcomed visitors to the visually striking red and white GWM exhibition stand. Apart from well-known favourites like the Steed 5 pick-up range, H5 SUV and the newly launched C10 compact hatch, show

visitors feasted their eyes on the new H6 SUV. This newcomer was China’s best-selling SUV in September 2012. If South Africa’s response is anything to go by, the H6 promises to be a worthy addition to the GWM vehicle range. Design-wise, the H6 boasts refined lines and sportier contours, making it a highly attractive alternative for both male and female SUV connoisseurs. Comfort and safety features abound, and its super spacious boot and luxurious interior delighted visitors. The GWM H6 will be available at GWM dealerships early in 2013. In 2013, GWM will celebrate its sixth year in South Africa and is planning more new vehicle launches to mark the occasion.







Evoque is a finalist In global production for just over a year, the Range Rover Evoque continues to generate immense interest with over 80 000 sales globally already. The stylish Evoque has garnered over 110 global awards, including World Design Car of the Year, North American Truck of the Year and most recently Women’s Car of the Year in South Africa from Women on Wheels. The Range Rover Evoque continues to receive plaudits for its concept car looks, dynamic driving performance, class-leading off-road skills and excellent cost of ownership. “We’re delighted to be in the running for South Africa’s premier motoring accolade,” said Kevin Flynn, Managing Director for Jaguar Land Rover South Africa and Sub Sahara Africa.

The award-winning Range Rover Evoque Si4 Dynamic model was voted by the country’s top motoring media as a worthy contender for the overall Car of the Year title.



 Homebuyers prefer to shop online now The internet and retail websites have become a fundamental part of many savvy consumers’ lives in today’s market. A large number of consumers prefer to shop online due to its convenience. Although the retail industry is currently the online leader in terms of volume and the number of consumers, the real estate industry is gaining significant ground and catching up quickly. Adrian Goslett, CEO of Remax of Southern Africa, says that in the past, few would have believed that the Internet would be the first place potential buyers would look to find their dream home. Today, however, more than 90% of all consumers use property search portals. Consumers have confidence in the Internet and the information found at their fingertips. “Homebuyers appreciate how simply online resources have made the process of finding their perfect property and many of the best leads in real estate have been generated through online search portals.” It simply means that the conventional sources of real estate information are no longer as important to homebuyers. Before the introduction of property search portals, homebuyers would scrutinise newspapers and real estate property

magazines to find property. Goslett said that although there has been a shift in the industry, traditional marketing tools are by no means dead. They have merely adapted. He says that although consumer online searches have boosted the options for potential buyers and eliminated their sole reliance on older methods of research, they still have their place in the market. Although homebuyers are looking for information regarding property and searching for homes online, they will still consult a real estate agent to supplement and refine their search. The prospect of buying property online has increased, however, estate agents are still very much an essential part of the process. Online real estate search tools have not taken business away from agents, but has instead offered them another platform by which to better their service to their clients. According to Goslett, real estate agencies have spent time on developing their web technologies to accommodate their clients and the majority of real estate agents have invested in tools such as Smartphones and iPads to stay in touch and connected with their growing online network.

Make use of expertise Buyers should tap into the expertise of reputable property professionals for guidance when buying property. Whether buyers are looking to buy property to live in or to lease out, the basics that make for a sound property investment will always apply. Commissioning the services of a qualified property expert is first prize, however, buyers also need to have the savvy to know what questions to ask. Location, location, location This maxim may have been used ad nauseum, but it’s never to be trivialised. Discuss these important factors with your property agent: - In which areas have properties shown consistent growth. - City hubs that will make for a sound property investment, making it easy to lease to younger people who have to live in the city. - Details about the existing rental market in an area, if you’re looking to lease the property out. - The proximity of the property to popular primary schools, secondary schools and universities, to enable a seamless future lease or sale. Value growth or high rental return? Return on investment is critical when deciding on your property of choice. Choosing between capital growth rate and rental return will depend largely on your financial situation. Get an understanding of

both. - Capital growth rate: the increase in value over time; if the market climbs, property price increases have a compounding effect. - Rental return: how much rental income you are likely to earn in relation to what you paid for the property. Your gross percentage of rental return is calculated as follows: - Annual rent divided by the purchase price or property value. Rental payments don’t compound, they help pay interest payments, rates and so on. There is no guarantee that the rent will increase annually although this may well be the case. Mass appeal The mercurial nature of economies around the world calls for property investors/buyers to choose a property with the realisation that they may have to sell or lease it out. For this reason, it’s advisable for them to find the middle ground between their unique preferences and common appeal in a property. Rand and cents If your property of choice needs fixing and renovating, get an estimate from a qualified contractor as to the anticipated cost. Then, with the help of your property agent, weigh these costs against the property’s projected growth in value - based on historical performance - before signing on the proverbial dotted line.

Plaaslike speler wen tennis ope Koos Venter Tucker Vorster van Pretoria het verlede week die nasionale Suid-Afrikaanse Ope tennistoernooi in Groenkloof gewen. Hy het Brendan Zackay in die eindstryd met 6-1, 6-1 verslaan. In die proses het hy ’n sogenaamde wild card vir volgende jaar se Soweto Ope losgeslaan. Vorster het reeds in sy dae as junior speler opgang gemaak toe hy deur die bekende Gerrie Dippenaar van Pretoria afgerig is. Dippenaar was ook die afrigter van ander bekende spelers soos Rick de Voest, Izak van der Merwe, Jeff Coetzee, Louis Vosloo (afrigter van Kevin Anderson) en Wesley Whitehouse (voormalige junior Wimbledon kampioen) asook Surina de Beer (voormalige junior wêreld nommer een). Nadat Vorster in 2006 Suid-

Afrika se top junior was toe hy die Suid-Afrikaanse junior kampioenskap gewen het, is hy Amerika toe, waar hy met ’n tennisbeurs aan die Ole University in Missisippi gestudeer het. Hy het vanjaar sy graad in sportsielkunde aan dié universiteit verwerf. Hy speel tans in ’n ITF-toernooi in Zimbabwe, waarna twee ITF-toernooie sal volg in Potchefstroom waar hy wêreldranglyspunte (ATP) kan verdien. Volgens Dippenaar lê daar ’n blink toekoms voor vir die 24jarige Vorster. Dippenaar sê sy spel het min swakplekke, maar hy is veral sterk as sogenaamde ‘dien en vlughou’-speler, wat ’n mens sterk herinner aan die bekende Pat Rafter van Australië. Dippenaar het aan Rekord gesê Vorster se sterkpunt is tans sy sielkundige taaiheid en sy honger vir sukses in die tenniswêreld.

Die bekende langafstandatleet, Riana van Niekerk het onlangs besoek by die Alpha Centurion Hardlopers en Stappers (ACRW) klub afgelê, waar sy trofeë aan presteerders na afloop van die klub se 8km tydtoetskampioenskap oorhandig het. Van Niekerk is ’n oudleerling aan Hoërskool Zwartkop. Sy het haar loopbaan daar as landloopatleet begin onder leiding van Dewald Strydom, die huidige skoolhoof van

Zwarries. Danksy haar toewyding en harde werk, asook die ondersteuning van haar man, Allie, het sy reeds vier goue medaljes in die Comrades-marathon gewen. Dit beteken dat sy reeds vier keer onder die eerste tien vroue-atlete in die 87km Comrades-ultramarathon geëindig het. Van Niekerk woon in Clubview en sy en haar man Allie is aktief by die organisering van laerskole-atletiek in Gauteng betrokke.

Polisie-rugbyklub hou funksie vir slotte Koos Venter Die Blou Bulle is vir dekades lank al bekend as die slotfabriek van Suid-Afrika. Sewe van die tien Springbokke wat die meeste toetse in die slotposisie vir SuidAfrika gesak het, was Blou Bulle, terwyl ’n volle 27 (meer as ’n derde) uit die 80 slotte wat oor die afgelope eeu in ’n Springboktrui gespeel het, op een of ander stadium in hul loopbaan ook vir die Bulle gespeel het. Die Pretoria Polisie-rugbyklub het oor die jare weer ’n horde slotte, waarvan ’n hele paar Springbokke geword het, vir die Blou Bulle opgelewer. Dink maar aan harde manne soos Adri Geldenhuys en Johan Ackerman. Om hierdie rede het die oud-Bloubul agtsteman en veteraan administrateur van die Pretoria Polisie, Katmuis Conradie, besluit om dié klub se jaarlikse rugbyfunksie ‘die dag van die slotte’ te noem. Geldenhuys was juis een van die gaste

by die funksie. Ander bekende oudprovinsiale slotte was André Skinner en Toy Dannhauser. Verskeie oudspelers van die Polisie-rugbyklub, wat heelwat slotte ingesluit het, was teenwoordig by dié funksie wat by die Bosveld Lapa, oud-Bloubul Willie Kahts se kuierplek langs Hoërskool Langenhoven, aangebied is. Daar is heerlik gekuier en stories oor die goeie ou rugbydae is weer opgediep. Dit was duidelik dat die meeste slotte, soos vandag nog, deur die jare altyd maar moeilike manne was wat nie op die rugbyveld verkeerd opgevryf moes word nie. ’n Paar legendes van die Polisie-rugbyklub was teenwoordig by die onlangse funksie. Voor sit kol. Katmuis Conradie en generaals Mike Geldenhuys en Ben Alberts. In die middelry is Willie Kahts, Schibel O’Reilly, Jack Conradie, Piet Steyn, Dave Pretorius, Kobus Muller en Chris Oosthuizen. Agter is Adri Geldenhuys, Chris Oosthuizen, André Skinner en Toy Dannhauser.

Die veteraan rugbyadministrateur, Mac van Vuuren (links) ontvang ’n eerbewys van die rugbyklub van Korrektiewe Dienste se voorsitter, Johnny Jaftha.

Tannie Johanna de Vos, legendariese persoonlikheid in klubrugby in Pretoria, ontvang ’n eerbewys van Johhny Jaftha, by ’n onlangse funksie van dié klub.

Die Blou Bulle-rugbyunie se nuwe uitvoerende hoof, Eugene Hare, word deur Johnny Jaftha, verwelkom in Pretoria met ’n spesiale eerbewys.

Korrektiewe Dienste wil gloriedae laat herleef Koos Venter Korrektiewe Dienste se rugbyklub is een van die oudste klubs in Pretoria met ’n roemryke geskiedenis. Dié klub, wat in hul gloriedae as die ‘Groen Dood’ bekendgestaan het, het twee jaar gelede reeds hul 80e bestaansjaar gevier. Korrektiewe Dienste se eerstespan, wat ook as die ‘Likkewane’ bekendstaan, het al twee keer die Blou Bulle se top liga, die

gesogte Carltonbeker gewen. Die Likkewane het op hul dag verskeie provinsiale spelers en ook Springbokke soos Moaner van Heerden, Deon Oosthuizen, Drikus Hattingh en Henry Tromp opgelewer. Weens verskeie faktore het die rugbyklub van Korrektiewe Dienste die afgelope jare egter deur diep waters gegaan. Dié klub se huidige voorsitter en ook pas herkose visepresident van die Blou Bulle, Johnny Jaftha, glo egter dat hulle

die draaipunt in die afwaartse kurwe bereik het en dat die klub nou weer op pad boontoe is. Hulle speel tans in die Blou Bulle se eerste liga, waar hulle vanjaar weer die halfeindrondte gehaal het. Jaftha glo egter hulle is op pad terug Carltonliga toe. Daar word tans groot planne gemaak om die klub se spelerstal weer uit te bou en Korrektiewe Dienste is ook ’n sogenaamde ‘oopklub’, wat beteken dat enige speler kan

aanmeld om in dié klub se gesogte groen trui te speel. Besoek die klub se webwerf of hul Facebook-blad vir besonderhede. By ’n onlangse funksie van die klub is twee sterk borge ook herbevestig, wat dit vir Jaftha en sy personeel moontlik sal maak om hul nuwe doelwitte na te jaag. By dieselfde funksie het die Likkewane ook hulde aan ’n paar staatmakers gebring wat oor die jare heen baie vir klubrugby in Pretoria beteken het.

Team USN Inov-8’s Carla van Huyssteen and Philip Buys from Pretoria claimed their second stage win for the weekend and the title of 2012 champions in the mixed team category with a combined finishing time of 10:24:39. According to Van Huyssteen stage three was tough, but fun. “For most of the day Philip and I would make up time on the single track, only to be caught by Yolande de Villiers and Johan Labuschagne on the open flat sections.

“They are really strong on the road. That’s the one section where Philip really had to help me on. “We managed to pull away at approximately the 55km mark and then maintained our lead. The Wines2Whales was a lot of fun. It was great seeing the intense battle between the women’s teams and the competition was really strong. “This was my first three-day MTB race and it was awesome, from the organisation to the routes. You can see that much effort went into staging this race,” said Van Huyssteen. Team J&Y were placed second after three days of racing, with Team Gogo and Gramps claiming the final spot on the podium.

Wednesday, 5 December. Momentum One Day Cup Cricket Series. Titans vs Cape Cobras. Boland Park, Paarl. From 15:00.


Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 December. Sevens Rugby. Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens. Port Elizabeth.

Die Nashua Titans se aanvangskolwer, Henry Davids, het Vrydag teen die Dolphins ’n ankerrol gespeel met sy 76 lopies, maar ongelukkig kon hy nie waardige vennote kry om saam met hom te kolf nie.

Titans moet wen Koos Venter Met al die spanne in die Momentum-eendagreeks wat slegs een wedstryd oor het om te speel, is dit net die Warriors van die Oos-Kaap wat glad nie meer die halfeindrondte kan haal nie. Dit beteken natuurlik ook dat die Nashua Titans hul laaste ligawedstryd teen die Cape Cobras, wat in die Paarl gespeel sal word, móét wen as hulle nog vir ’n tuis halfeindrondte wil kwalifiseer. Hulle sal inderwaarheid die wedstryd ook moet wen om te verseker dat hulle enigsins nog ’n sê in die reeks kan hê, aangesien die Dolphins en die Knights in hul nekke blaas op soek na ’n plek in die halfeindrondte. Die Titans het sake vir hulself moeilik gemaak toe hulle Vrydagaand in ’n spannende wedstryd teen die Dolphins in Centurion met twee lopies verloor het. Dié wedstryd het dramaties geëindig toe die Titans net-net nie daarin kon slaag om sewe lopies in die laaste boulbeurt te kry nie,

terwyl hulle net een paaltjie staande gehad het. Die Dolphins het 264 lopies in hul toegelate 50 boulbeurte aangeteken en hulle is goed in toom gehou, veral deur puik boulwerk van Albie Morkel, wat uiteindelik drie paaltjies ingeoes het. Aanvanklik het dit gelyk of die Titans hierdie teiken op ’n drafstap gaan verbysteek, maar ongelukkig het die res van die top kolwers gesukkel om ordentlike vennootskappe met Henry Davids te behaal. Davids het sy paaltjie eers ná ’n persoonlike bydrae van 76 met 179 lopies op die telbord verloor. Eers toe David Wiese en Eden Links die agtste paaltjie verdedig het, was daar weer ’n ordentlike vennootskap wat die Titans se beurt op die wenpad kon kry. Ongelukkig het Wiese sy paaltjie net te vroeg verloor om wéér ’n wedstryd vir sy span te wen en Links kon die wa nie saam met Rowan Richards om die tiende paaltjie deur die drif kry nie. Die Titans het egter een laaste kans

gekry om nog tweede in die ligafase te eindig toe die wedstryd tussen die Knights en die Cape Cobras die naweek uitgereën het. Hulle sal egter Woensdag, wanneer al die spanne in hul laaste rondte wedstryde speel, die Cobras in die Kaap moet klop om ’n tuis halfeindrondte te verseker. Die Knights, wat teen die Highveld Lions in Kimberley speel en die Dolphins, wat die Warriors in Oos-Londen pak, blaas egter albei in die Titans se nekke en enigeen van dié twee kan die manne van Centurion nog verbysteek as hulle teen die Cobras verloor. Albie Morkel se puik boulwerk teen die Dolphins verlede Vrydagaand was ’n doring in die vlees van die Natallers. Dit het ook weer gewys waarom die bestuur by die Titans Morkel as een van hul waardevolste spelers beskou en hom nie wil toelaat om in Januarie in die Big Bash-toernooi in Australië te gaan speel nie.
