The forgotten ward Sinenhlanhla Mkhwanazi Imagine not being able to make a cup of tea or get a glass of water in the stifling heat wave that had Pretoria in its grip this week. This is a daily reality for residents in Itsoseng Phase 5, where many of them are lacking the most basic services. Even though this area is seen as an informal settlement, most of the residents have been living there for more than 15 years. Caroline Sephogole (71) has been living in Itsoseng for 17 years and takes care of 15 members of her family, five of whom are her grandchildren. She is just one of the residents who doesn’t have a proper house number, running water, electricity or a sewerage system. Sephogole and her family have to buy water for everyday cooking and drinking at Itsoseng Phase 6, which falls under the municipality of Madibeng. “Twenty litres of water costs us R5. This is expensive for us and sometimes they refuse to sell us water,” said Sephogole. Sephogole depends on her pension money to feed her 15 dependants. Her grandchildren do not qualify for government grants because they cannot submit a proof of address without an assigned house number. “Some of these house

numbers are not right. Resi­ dents just wrote numbers on their shacks so they can identify it,” she said. Last week their family had to go two days without water to drink, cook with or bath in. “It is really difficult to live without water and I appeal to the government to help us get the basic services so that we can survive,” she said. They use candles for light at night and cook their food on open fires. “The conditions we live in are really bad and not healthy for any human being,” said Sephogole. Public relations councillor for ward 20, Doris Mnguni, visited the Sephogole family last week and told Rekord they are currently trying to speed up service delivery in the area. Mnguni said they especially want to speed up the naming of the streets and issuing of house numbers for residents to present them with proof of residence. Mnguni also mentioned an incident where a resident needed serious medical attention and the ambulance was unable to enter the area because of the poor conditions of roads. “People in this area are really suffering and we will work hard to see what we can do to provide them with basic services such as water,” said Mnguni. Ward 20’s councillor, William Baloyi, acknowledged that he is aware of the poor conditions in the area.

Constable shoots fiancée and then himself Sinenhlanhla Mkhwanazi

A Ga-Rankuwa police constable (26) shot his fiancée before turning the gun on himself and pulling the trigger, following an argument between the two. According to Ga-Rankuwa police spokesperson, Warrant Officer Mathew Nkwadi, the incident happened after an unknown man informed the constable that his fiancée was out with another man at a

local tavern on Saturday afternoon. The constable rushed to the tavern where he found his fiancée sitting with the other man. When his fiancée saw him she allegedly ran away and went to her house in Zone 2. The constable followed her there where a heated argument ensued between the couple. It is alleged that the constable took out his firearm and shot his fiancée. He then turned the gun on himself and pulled the trigger. Both of them died on the

scene. Ga-Rankuwa police officials were shocked by the incident. “This is a loss to the station because the constable was a hard worker,” said Nkwadi.­ The constable was promoted last year to join the station’s detectives unit. “He had a bright future at the station and will be remembered for his hard work,” he said. Nkwadi said he urges constables at the station to join the Police Service Man

for Change Forum. This is a forum aimed at male police officials where they discuss personal pro­blems. Qualified psychologists attend the sessions to give advice to those who have problems. “This incident has really shocked us and we encourage other police officials who have problems, to attend the forums so that we can give each other guidance and advice,” he said. The police have opened an inquest and murder case.



School bids friend an emotional farewell Sthembiso Sithole Community members of Soshanguve gathered in their numbers on Friday for the funeral of three family members who died in a fire recently. The 33-year-old mother, Rebecca Phokojoe, and her two children, Subisiso (13) and Temoso (5) were found dead on October 13 after their shack caught fire in Block LKK. Phokojoe was employed at the Tshwane University of Technology’s Soshanguve South campus as a cleaner. Sibusiso was a grade 7 pupil at the Sinqobile Primary School. Temoso was still in the Early Learning Centre in Block LKK. Deputy principal of Sinqobile Primary, Rebecca Radise, described Sibusiso’s death as disturbing and said he was a good boy. “This was a shock to us and it had a huge impact on all of us. He was an intelligent and humble boy.” Close family friend, Annah Sekhaolelo, who was called after the shack was ablaze, believes Rebecca played her role as a mother. “She was a friend and a mother to her children. She was full of love and ensured that her children came first.”

Pupils from Sinqobile Primary School on Friday bid farewell to their late schoolmate, Sibusiso Phokojoe, who died with his mother and younger sister in a fire recently. The school’s drummers and drum majorettes performed at the funeral.

Police warn women

Rape is still the number one crime that is worrying Rietgat police. A case of rape is reported at the station every week. According to Warrant Officer Lolo Mangena, spokesperson for Rietgat police, residents must be more vigilant. On Friday the police opened a rape case where the complainant is only 16. It is alleged that the girl was inside a taxi travelling to Winterveld, when she met a stranger who claimed to know her uncle. The man then told the girl to come with him and the girl got off the taxi with the man. “On their way the man contacted his friends who were driving a vehicle. It is alleged that they took the girl to the bushes in Block KK where the four men raped her,” said Mangena. The girl was taken to Odi hospital

where she was treated. The police are continuing with investigations. Mangena also said rapists target girls at night when they hitchhike, especially in Lucas Mangope Drive. “Earlier this year we had a case where two girls who were hitchhiking were raped and robbed. We advise girls to be careful at night,” he said. The Ga-Rankuwa police are also investigating a case of a woman who was kidnapped on October 15 at Mabopane station by two unknown men. It is suspected the men took the woman to a house in Tembisa where she was raped repeatedly and kept hostage. On October 23 the woman managed to escape and went to the nearest police station where she reported the case. “The investigation is continuing and we are working hard to find the culprits,” said Ga-Rankuwa police spokesperson, Warrant Officer Matthew Nkwadi.

It is now ten months and the search for Maria Mantsetse Mlangeni (64) from Soshanguve Block H continues. Mlangeni went missing on January 31 when she went for her monthly check-up at Dr George Mukhari hospital in Ga-Rankuwa with her daughter, Thando. Mlangeni suffers from a condition called dementia. Thando left her mother sitting on the bench when she went to fetch her medication and when she came back her mother was nowhere to be found. The hospital’s main gate security video footage shows Mlangeni leaving the hospital. “We pray that God will help my mother to return home and we will keep on praying for her safe return,” said Thando. On the day of Mlangeni’s disappearance she was wearing a white shirt and skirt with brown flowers and black shoes with a brown beret. Anyone who has seen Mlangeni must phone Angie Mlangeni on 082-870-4289 or

Operations to raid illegal taverns continue

Rietgat police raided three illegal taverns in Soshanguve over the weekend. The main aim of the raids were to close down taverns that were operating without licences in the area. “We want tavern owners to respect the law of the country and they must have operating licences,” said Rietgat police spokesperson, Warrant Officer Lolo Mangena. Some of the taverns that the police raided were in Block PP2, HH and X. During the raid the police confiscated liquor estimated to be at the value of R10 000 and three fridges. “By taking the fridges and the liquor we want to make it difficult for the taverns to operate because they need to adhere to the law,” he said. Another reason that prompted the police to raid the taverns was the increasing number of assault cases at taverns. According to Mangena most reported

assault cases happen in illegal tarvens. Rietgat police last week released crime statistics which show that 15 cases of assault were reported. One of the cases happened in one of the well-known taverns where a man alleged that he was assaulted by a group of men. The complainant alleged he was enjoying his drink when three men came to him and beat him before locking him inside a car boot. “Residents are warned that we will not tolerate any bad behaviour and we advise them to come to us if they have a problem with any tavern in their area,” said Mangena. He also mentioned that they would continue with these raids in order to prepare for the festive season. “We have a forum for tavern owners in the area and we encourage them to come to us if they need more information about the forum,” concluded Mangena.


Public Protector speaks to students Sthembiso Sithole “Anyone with a complaint is welcome to report it to the Public Protector’s office and the matter will be investigated.” Advocate Thuli Madonsela gave this assurance at the Tshwane University of Technology’s Soshanguve South campus last Wednesday. Her public lecture was part of the Public Protector’s Good Governance Week. She addressed students and lecturers on the role and function of her department.

“We investigate, mediate, conciliate and negotiate cases that come to our office,” said Madonsela. She said her office depended on the citizens of this country. “Democracy is not about voting and going back home to wait for the government to do something. It is about voting and engaging with the leaders who you have put in power to make a better South Africa.” Students were given pamphlets explaining more about the Public Protector and with contact details of her office.

a result of the Public Private Partnerships initiatives the department is engaged in and these are aimed at boosting the quality of healthcare in Gauteng’s public hospitals. “As we hand over blankets and pyjamas we want to put an end to the practice of patients having to bring their own blankets upon admission to this hospital,” said

Mekgwe. She also explained that when patients bring their own blankets to hospital, they run the risk of spreading hospital acquired infections and they bring other infections from home to hospital. Mekgwe also acknowledged that it is one of those hospitals that suffered years of neglect.

community members were robbed of their cell phones while listening to music. According Mabopane police spokesperson, Lieutenant Thebe Dikatso, robbers target residents who have their earphones on because they are unaware of what is happening around them.

Bothwell Magobeya makes a living by making and selling toy cars in Soshanguve, Block K.

Can cars a hit on streets Koketso Ramorei A man in Soshanguve is ma­ king a living from selling toy cars he makes out of ordinary cans and wire. Bothwell Magobeya, a Zimbab­ wean, sells the toy cars to better his life. He started making these cars when he was still young. He wakes up every morning to collect materials at a local garage where petrol attendants assist him by collecting the cans in a box for him. “I saw there was a need for toy cars in Soshanguve, so I decided to start collecting cans and make

these cars. Residents have respon­ ded well,” he said. He uses basic tools such as a bread knife to cut and shape the cans. Magobeya, who resides in Soshanguve, Block K, has even sold his toy cars in Botswana and Mozambique. “This is not only about the cars I am making but also about trying to play my part in helping to recycle. Many people that throw away these cans do not know how much they are throwing away.” He has been living in Soshan­ guve for three years and has so far managed to transfer some of his skills to two other young people.

One of his students is from Block D in Soshanguve and the other from Klipgat. Magobeya said they are doing well. “I taught them how to cut the tins and how to mould the wires into different shapes and sizes. I also showed them how to assemble the cars.” Local community member, Lesego Tabane said, “Magobeya is doing a good job and the cars look very nice. We are supporting him by finding used wire and cans that he uses for the cars and we will continue to do so.” The toy cars price between R20 and R30.

Catholic Church choirs from the archdiocese of Pretoria are working hard in preparation for their annual interdioces competitions. This year the interdioces competitions take place in Nelspruit on December 3 and 4. Some of the choirs from Pretoria that will be participating at the interdioces music festival include St Clare from Soshanguve, St Anne’s from Atteridgeville, St Martin de Porres from Sunnyside, Sacred Heart from Pretoria Central, Moya from Tembisa, St Ra­ phael from Mamelodi, St Theresa from Mothutlung and others. Choirs from the archdiocese of Botswana, Nelspruit and Johan-

nesburg will also participate in the competitions. Last year the interdioces music competition were held in Rustenburg where choirs from Botswana won in most cate­ gories. In the C-section St Clare from Soshanguve will represent the archdiocese where they will sing Hail Smiling Morn, Re a kgopela and Rorisang Kreste. “I believe they will do better this year, especially with the English song, Hail Smiling Morn,” said Manelisi Mthethwa, choral music singer. Mthethwa mentioned that they also expect St Anne’s to perform well in the youth sections. Large choirs will be perfor­ ming one of the well-known songs in Catholic Churches called Ahe Anna.

Members of St Clare Catholic Church choir, Dineo Phele and Lenny Ngwenya, said they are ready for the interdioces music competitions.
