SPECIAL meeting was held at Oribi Gorge on Monday between staff and the family of the Wild Swing guide who plummeted to his death last week. The body of Thokozani Robson Mncube (26), who at the time was demonstrating how the swing works to a guest, was retrieved from the water at the bottom of the gorge last Friday night. The meeting was held to discuss

details of how the incident occurred and to mourn the “death of a friend, brother and a son”. Mncube, known as “Rasta” because of his dreadlocks, had been employed at Wild 5 Adventures for more than 18 months.

According to Wild 5 owner Paul Jefferys, Mncube had done the 165metre jump off Lehr’s Waterfall “thousands of times”. Jefferys was in Mooi River when the incident occurred and said what had happened was “tragic”.

Both slings have a six-ton breaking strain, but being the adventurous man he was, Mncube jumped backwards and attempted a twist at the same time, said Jefferys. “When I got to the site my staff told me he looked up and laughed when he noticed he had jumped over the retriever cable. “He hung there for about 10 seconds before his safety cable snapped.” Turn to page 2

“While attempting a special trick jump of his own, Robson jumped at a very strange angle and landed over the retriever cable which is meant to pull the MARTIN person back up. “He went too far to the ELECTRONICS

Robbed by a six-year-old >> Margate jeweller robbed by ‘sweet’ six­ year­old thief ROWAN PHILP

A

KZN jeweller thought nothing of it when a customer’s sweet six-year-old son wandered behind his counter yesterday. But when the boy’s family left the store to fetch cash and didn’t return for their purchases, Andrew Christensen rushed to his safe and realised he’d been the victim of a child burglar.

The heist not only saw jewellery estimated at over R100 000 stolen from Andrew’s Manufacturing Jewellers - an upmarket family-owned boutique in Margate - but also the loss of treasured items owned by customers. Co-owner Andrew Christensen said an ice cream tub “in-box” filled with diamond rings brought in for re-modelling; antiques for valuations; and gems for re-setting had been taken. “Unfortunately, there will be a lot of broken hearts out there - this is not an insurance issue: we want these items back.” Minutes after the theft, the outraged Christensen wrote this

on the store’s website: “Family of mother, aunty, six year old son and young baby all distracting me while the f*****g son of six crawls into the back and steals a s*** load from my safe.” Christensen (40) told The Witness: “An upper class-looking family came in; very polite and well-groomed. The father had a toddler with him; there were two women around 30 who [said] they were sisters, and their sixyear-old son. The sisters were doing the looking, and they wanted to see everything - that’s when the alarm bells began to ring.” He said he was aware that the boy was “going under the counter”, but that the women

Sugarmill Road accident horror INVESTIGATIONS are under­ way into an accident in Port Shepstone in which 19 people were hurt on Tuesday after­ noon. The crash, involving a minibus­taxi and a car, took place along Sugarmill Road. Most of the injured were from the minibus­taxi. Medics from EMRS as well as from a number of private ambulance companies con­ verged on the scene to attend to the injured before trans­ porting them to nearby South Coast hospitals ­ sourced East Coast Radio.

drew his attention to purchases they claimed to want: two watches, tanzanite earrings and a white-gold necklace. “While I was working out the price for one of them, the other section of the family left the store,” he said. “Then the woman left as well; she said she had to get money from the car.” But the mother didn’t return, and Christensen found no sign of the boy. Instead, in his workshop, he found that his safe had been looted. “The safe had been unlocked — I have to think the boy just got lucky to find the safe like that,” he said. He said the safe was unlocked “because I was just returning another

FROM PAGE 1 “He was an adrenalin junkie. He always wanted to try new things,” explained Jefferys. Mncube’s family said that from a young age he loved being daring. Jefferys added that there was no negligence on Wild 5 Adventure’s part and that all equipment was up to standard. “We haven’t had any accidents for the past 12 years. A docket has been opened, which is standard procedure,” he said. “We will ensure Robson’s legacy will live on at Wild 5 in the form of a memorial plaque that will remind us all of how easily accidents can happen when complacency sets in.” Members of Med-Evac and the Port Shepstone Search and Rescue Unit assisted at the scene. Paddock Police Station and officials from the Department of Labour will investigate the incident. Operations at Wild 5 Adventures were halted for a few days, but were said to have resumed on Wednesday (5 March). A member of Mncube’s family could not be reached at the time of going to press.

customer’s goods to the safe when this family came in”. He speculated that the boy may have signalled his success to his family from the workroom via a window. Later, Christensen checked his CCTV footage - showing the outside ofthestore- andsaw“thewholefamily had run for their car and sped off”. Before briefing police, the London-trained craftsman returned to his Facebook page to write this vow: “To the filthy family … that just robbed my store: I have you on camera and am going to hunt you sons of b*****s down.” A docket for theft has been opened with the Margate SAPS.

Bodies recovered in South Coast waters AN UNNAMED teenager (14), who went swimming in a non­bathing area on Saturday in Margate, drowned at 4pm. Lieutenant­Colonel Zandra Wiid said her friends ran to the lifeguards for help. “One of the girls allegedly got into difficulty and the other two tried to help her, but had to abandon their rescue attempts,” said Wiid. After the lifeguards failed to find her, the search and rescue team responded and found her body at 7.12pm. An docket has been opened. In a seperate weekend incident, police were called to a river at Banana Beach. A body of an un­ known man was pulled from the water. Southport police have opened an inquest docket.

THE culpable homicide trial regarding the death of worldrenowned cyclist Burry Stander will be heard in Port Shepstone Regional Court on 19 and 20 March. The trial was to continue last Thursday, 27 February

and Friday, 28 February, but had to be postponed as the state’s expert witness was unavailable. Njabulo Nyawose (24) was driving the taxi which collided with Stander in Shelly Beach on 3 January, 2013. “Due to the unavailability of the expert witness who was to give evidence in the

state’s case, the matter was postponed,” said Natasha Ramkisson Kara, regional communications manager for the National Prosecuting Authority. All parties involved in this matter, including the family of the deceased, were duly notified of the postponement and did not pose any objection,” she said.

Municipality has no plans for nudist beach CANDYCE KRISHNA

He said that they are happy with its usage and that the disobedient

He says the skips have not been emptied in weeks and can no longer hold any more refuse. The resident sent an e­mail to Hibiscus Coast Municipality’s Cleansing and Maintenance De­ partment at the beginning of February, however no response has been received. His correspondence read: “I took these photos this afternoon. The skips haven’t been emptied in ages. Please can you advise when this will be done.” The resident said in the mean­ time that a security guard there has been turning people away. “People have to drive all the way back home and unload their garden refuse,” he said.

>>news1@feveronline.co.za KWAZULU-NATAL MEC for Transport Willies Mchunu has commended the taxi industry for “growing and becoming a stable industry with a few elements of taxi violence and road accidents”. Mchunu was addressing the South African Taxi Association Council (Santaco) provincial annual general meeting at Kapenta Bay Hotel on Thursday. “Generally the taxi industry in KwaZuluNatalisstable.Weneedtocongratulateandapplaud its leadership for a stable industry. Yes, in any industry there are silly and uncontrollable elements who are always out of order. “Therefore we can’t say the whole taxi industry is not stable in this province, but the taxi industry leadership has resolved issues of taxi violence themselves in this province,” said Mchunu. Mchunu mentioned the Dolphin Coast, KwaMaphumulo, KwaDukuza, Mandeni and Newcastle as a few areas where taxi violence is still a problem. He said the Efolweni area is now conducting “guerilla taxi warfare” which is difficult to control because criminals hit certain people and keep quiet for a while before hitting another person again. People kill the taxi men and their wives. “What kind of people kill and burn women?” asked Mchunu, condemning an incident in Mandeni recently. He thanked Santaco for its successful programme in reducing road accidents in “Hlokomela Operation”. The operation saw taxi road accidents drop by 33%. He said that in many accidents where taxis are involved they found that taxis were not the cause of the accidents. “Unfortunately, there are those few silly young boys behind the wheel. not owners, who kill our people on the roads,” said Mchunu. He praised taxi industry leaders for stopping the recruitment of new members who want to join the industry. “This is done to ensure the profitability and

Mchunu said they are negotiating the subsidisation of the taxi industry and encouraging the diversification of taxi owners to the bus industry to reduce conflict between the two industries. KZN Santaco chairperson Bongani Zondi called on the government to subsidise the taxi industry and not only the bus industry, which benefit only families. “Bus passengers are paying the same money they pay in our taxis, so bus subsidies do not benefit passengers,” said Zondi.

This programme targeted the most vulnerable and poverty­stricken pupils,” said Mqwebu. Eleven schools in total have benefited in the pro­ grammeandeachofthesevenmunicipalclusterswasrep­ resented. “Four schools received these gifts.

have a legitimate demand when they want service delivery and she was happy that they were launching their customer service charter and commit­ ting themselves to do their best to meet the needs of the people. “Many people end up sending their service delivery complaints to my of­ fice, but I am happy today that people know where to channel their com­ plaints to make public officials ac­ countable. So we urge our officials to put people first. “These officials do well in the inter­ views but once they are in office, they forget about putting people first. I also phoned other departments in the mu­ nicipality and found phones ringing several times without being an­ swered,” said Mqwebu. Ugu South Coast Tourism Deputy Chairperson Howard Kelly said service delivery is important since the South Coast is competing against Durban North for tourists. He said it would be good for HCM officials to walk the talk and improve service to grow local tourism.

BETTER policing, community safety, crime prevention, law enforcement and improved accessibility of services to the public will be the result of new mobile law enforcement offices. The Hibiscus Coast Municipality mayor, Cynthia Mqwebu officially launched the new offices at the Shelly Centre upper parking area last week. In attendance were SAPS officials and safety and security cluster representatives at Shelly Beach. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the beginning of the decentralisation of law enforcement agents, Mqwebu said this is just the start of better law enforcement. “This mobile office opening follows the municipality’s decision to decentralise the law enforcement section further into all six zones of the municipality, starting from Hibberdene to Port Edward. The mobile offices will act as reporting stations for the public and will operate 24hours a day,” said Mqwebu. The new offices have been placed in four strategic sites — Dick King square in Port Shepstone, Shelly Centre roof parking, Margate Airport and the Uvongo Town Hall parking. “The municipality has also partnered with South African Police Services to dedicate certain days to provide affidavit services to the public,” said Mqwebu.

ExxonMobil Exploration and Production South Africa Limited (EMEPSAL) has submitted an application for an Exploration Right with the Petroleum Agency of South Africa (PASA) to explore for oil and gas reserves in the Deepwater Durban Exploration Area offshore of the East Coast of South Africa. The Deepwater Durban Exploration Area is located far from the coast and in deep water. During the proposed initial three year exploration programme EMEPSAL propose to undertake at a minimum airborne geophysics data aquisition (7,000 km2) and licensing (and possibly acquisition) of 2D seismic survey data (2,600 line km). Depending on the results from these surveys, additional exploration activities may then be undertaken. In terms of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act (MPRDA), an Environmental Management Programme (EMPr) covering the proposed activities must be prepared and submitted to PASA for consideration and for approval by the Minister of Mineral Resources. PASA accepted EMEPSAL’s application on 22 November 2013 and the EMPr is due to be submitted to PASA by 18 March 2014. Invitation to Provide Input and Comment The draft EMPr has been compiled by Environmental Resources Management (Pty) Ltd and is available online at www.erm.com/deepwaterdurbanEMPR and in the following locations for review: Port Shepstone Public Library, Amanzimtoti Public Library, Margate Public Library, Austerville Public Library, Durban Public Library, Ballito Public Library, Richards Bay Public Library and KwaDukuza Public Library. The initial public notification about the proposed project was issued in December 2013. A further notification regarding the availability of the draft EMPr has been sent to all stakeholders on the stakeholder database. As part of the process, additional input and comment on the proposed activities is being solicited from stakeholders and the general public. Please send your comments to the person below.

‘We wish you well in your endeavours to achieve your goals’ Dear Fever, DEAR Max, your presentation at thelaunchoftheHCMCustomerService Charter and, indeed, the service charter itself are, I believe, the most significant step forward taken by HCM in promoting good relations between residents of the lower South

Coast and their municipality, HCM. The commitments towards good service delivery contained within the charter, together with those additional commitments made by you in your presentation, meet most of the aspirations of the residents and ratepayers and, if adhered to by your staff

No more free post boxes in Margate Dear Fever, IWOULDliketobringthistotheattention of post­box users in the Margate area. I un­ fortunately neglected to renew my cluster box at the Hibiscus Mall and was locked out until I paid up. I was in Shelly Beach and thought I would just do the payment at the post office at the Spar Centre. When I spoke to the clerk at the counter, she told me that if I lived in Shelly Beach the post boxes were free and that I didn’t even need to own my own house. I have since inquired and found out that you also have a free service in Umtentweni. I then decided that I would not do the pay­ ment there and would enquire at the post office at the Hibiscus Mall. I was told that the rental was R359 per year, which I feel is a lot of money that many people don’t have to pay. The reason they gave me was that they have a house­to­ house street­delivery service, which I could change to and then it would be free. Many years ago the post office moved away from home deliveries as it was not effi­ cient enough and they introduced cluster boxes which were closer to the community and in areas where people could find park­ ing. ItseemsthattheMargatePostOfficehas gone backwards in its thinking by introduc­ ingthismethodofdeliveryand ithascreated employmentforoneortwopeople,butithas subjected these poor guys to very hot humid or rainy conditions on bicycles, but worse still, they need to keep ahead of the dogs that want to bite them. The problem I have with this whole issue is that it is a big inconvenience to change your postal address, as you need to let many people know about it and there will inevita­ blybesomeimportantcontactsyoumayfor­ get. I used to get my service for free and then this new method was introduced, or should I say old method. I think that maybe it’s a good thing as not everyone has transport to fetch their mail, but why should that be at my expense. I have to pay a huge amount for the peo­ ple who get their post box free or the postal service make it a realistic amount, then I wouldn’t have to save up just to pay for the “free” box. Unhappy customer Margate

will, I believe, go a long way towards achievingyour,andour,visionforthis area. I understand that it will not be an easy task to meet all these service commitmentsontime,everytime,but once good service delivery becomes the norm, rather than the exception,

it should become easier to do so. I am sure I speak for the majority of the residents and ratepayers of the lower South Coast when I say that we wish you well in your endeavours to achieve your goals and we assure you that we will, wherever practical and possible, offer you our assistance in

Want my man to be faithful to me

Found husband in shower with prostitute

Dear Doctor Nash, My partner is HIV­positive but I still love him. I spend every week end with him because it is a two­hour trip to get to him, I think that that is the prob­ lem. He has been married before and that was not good. Now he tells me he has always had a girlfriend. He tells me that his wife cheated a lot and there is now a lot of angerinsidehimandgirlsapproachhim.Hesaysmistakes do happen, but that is no excuse. How can I get this man to be faithful to me? He tells me that girls always phone him, and that is not his fault, but if he is only sleeping with one woman, why are the girls phoning him? But I know that he also phones girls, one was with him once when I phoned him and she answered the phone. He keeps telling me that he has finished with that girl and that she has been the only one in the past five years, but I do not believe him. What can I do about this man? I want him. M.N. Dear Ms. M.N. Are you out of your ever­loving mind? He is HIV ­positive, he is cheating on a regular basis, he is totally untrustworthy and you say that you love him. You know that a partnership is based on trust so how can you love with no trust? You need to get out of this rela­ tionshiptosaveyourself,heisbeyondsaving.Settledown where you are, work at your job and build friend­ ships. The right man will come along, but not if you are HIV­ positive, so get yourself tested and pray. I do not know how old you are but if you have family talk to them. If you need to, why not consult a clinical psychologist as well. It will pay you.

Dear Doctor Nash, I have been married now for 10 years. Two years back I caught my husband having an affair. He promised never again and it was the only time. I believed him. We have two children, the one is nine and the other five. Then two weeks ago my elder child and I were out for a fun after­ noon, the younger one was attending extra tuition. My son and I got home, he went to his room and on my way to my bedroom I heard the shower on in the guest room. I went through and found my husband in the shower with a naked prostitute. I was shattered. I screamed to them to get out and to leave. She did, but my husband came to me and tried to convince me that nothing had happened and that he had been drinking at a company do and she came on to him, and he was sorry and would never happen again. What do I do? The children? I think they know now, and I am scared. What about HIV? What about the children? Some help please. Do not print my name, just say “Betrayed”. Dear “Betrayed”, I am sure you just want this whole epi­ sode to just disappear but of course it won’t, so why not take a break, move out for a while and then consult a good clinical psychologist with experience in this type of betrayal. Give yourself time to think, and get some legal advice. When you have got that help and cleared your mind and talked with the children you will have two choices. First try to reconcile if at all possible, and second is to take him to the cleaners. Divorce. Clean out his pension, savings and take the house, plus maintenance. Then, if you can, and he wants it and if you want to, you can remarry in ANC and be reasonably safe. I am sure you know the safe course, but take time and advice.

Dear Fever, WE spent two weeks in Shelly Beach at a unit and returned home recently, but was not able to contact the Fever as I have not been well. Our story dates back to 29 January at Bondi Beach when, lo and behold, we had an oven fire in our unit. While roasting lamb shanks in the oven, there appeared to be smoke coming from the space inbetweenthegraniteandthe hob. To cut a long story short, after my husband investigated as to the location of the smoke,itwasnecessarytocall the fire service. The person on the other side of the phone was super and they arrived within minutes. They were certainly needed and did all to put out the smoke and smouldering fire. Their care and service was outstanding. They inquired whether we were all feeling well and I mentioned that my friend was a chronic asthmatic. Theyinsistedoncallingthe ambulance services. They too arrived in a short time and took care of my friend Irma. We want to thank the ambulance and fire services sincerely for the wonderful service and care they gave us. Shelly Beach can be proud of these wonderful people, and we send out thanks to them again. A word of appreciation also to all our neighbours who came out to help as well, inquiring if we were alright and if there was anything they could do. Alex and Lydia Borella Edenvale Gauteng

WHILE travelling to the South Coast from the Mid­ lands, I was listening to a SAfm programme on our universities and it was staggering to hear the number of students who lose out on this form of tertiary education because campuses are over­sub­ scribedorpossiblyapplicantsdonotfallwithinvari­ ous quota policies. This unfortunate situation suggests that there is massive demand for university education which begs the question — why not a university here on the South Coast? I am convinced that should a campus be estab­ lished here (either with a South African university or even an overseas institution) not only would this be a huge incentive to assist our local people in get­ ting excellent qualifications but also act as an edu­ tourism benefit for our destination. Instead of local people taking their university spend to another area (eg. Durban or Cape Town) their outlays would be retained locally and parents andfunderscouldsavemoney.Furthermore,inward students from afar would spend monies here on ac­ commodation, living and entertainment expenses ­ all during what would be outside our normal peak holiday periods. In addition, universities compete in sports, host conferences, engage in arts and conduct research programmes that induce people to visit the area. Parents would come down to visit their offspring and attend graduation ceremonies and class reun­ ions would also add to the tourism spend for an in­ definite period. This all contributes to that valuable tourism revenue yield. Having lived and studied in the university town of Stellenbosch (our company also did the tourism plan for that town in the late nineties) it is patently clear that the value of a university in an area is sub­ stantial. This is also very evident in the relatively isolated city of Grahamstown which derives a great deal of its economic well­being from its fine schools and the Rhodes University campus. Maybe it is time that as part of mapping the greater South Coast for the future, this opportunity is seriously considered ­ the benefits economically and importantly for our local skills bases will be im­ pressive. Who knows the underutilised Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre property could provide a user­ready sports facility for a campus that can be developed around it or even the unoccupied St Elmo’s Mission near Hibberdene could become one of the most pic­ turesque beacons of education overlooking the in­ viting Indian Ocean. Maybe this article will sew a seed to take this further within the higher echelons of government and possibly the private sector ­ we have an option to drag our feet slowly or be proactive in uplifting our youth and at the same time add vitality to our tourismasacontributortowardslocaleconomicde­ velopment. Impossible? I do not believe so. Have a brilliant week in paradise ­ career­seek­ ing students may one day will savour it as well.

AFTER nine months of preparations and planning, Graeme Milligan and his wife Taryn offer their thanks and the thanks of the Harbourview team to all their valued and loyal customers. Milligan is excited to announce a small revamp to the store by giving it a refreshed inside look. Their aim is to make the shopping experience at Harbour­ view Spar even more enjoyable and pleasurable than it already is. In the next couple of months, the interior will be renovated with an upgrade to the cof­ fee shop and service departments. The project planning was a trying time for management, but it’s all smiles as the upgrade gets underway, they say. To the staff it’s business as usual as they work on customer service. The revamp will have little to no effect on the Spar’s trading. “We pride ourselves on making people smile through excellent customer service, and we want Harbourview Superspar to be your destination store,” says Milligan. – Fever Reporter

The law digs in to building sites >> Only four reasons to legally reject a proposal

PHOTOS: SOURCED

Renowned photographer Grant Pitcher finds the Umhlanga Pearls one of his favourite buildings to capture in Durban.

PHOTO: SOURCED

Civil engineers agree construction is as much about breaking down as it is about building up, because building is essentially a compilation of smaller parts. BUILDING and construction is not quite as simple as putting one brick on top of another. There are many laws and regulations governing construction. However, fundamentally there are on­ ly four reasons a local authority may legally reject a building proposal. Firstly, should the proposed construction deface or damage the area around it, the proposal will be rejected. Sonoerosivelandscaping,excessivedigging or earthmoving will be permitted if it could result in damage to the environment or any structures near­ by. Secondly, if the proposed construction could or will be unsightly or objectionable to any party directly influenced by the construction it will be re­ jected. Therefore one is limited in their use of multi­ storeyed houses in a residential area. Twelve foot walls and buttresses will get rejected if your neigh­ bours choose to oppose a building project. Thirdly, should the proposed structure be of

such a nature so as to detract from monetary value of neighbouring properties, it will be rejected. Any type of plaster­covered monstrosity erected in a bed of sand will be denied, no matter how nouveau it is. Finally, any building or structure that could, by its presence, present an imminent source of danger to either life or property will be rejected. Any type of building that could have some sort of instability or protuberance that could harm someone or something, will not be permitted. Aside from these legal strictures, there may be no denying a building proposal to the local authority. All things being equal, an owner of a building may in writing request that they be granted an exemp­ tion to one or more of the above regulations. This deviance or exemption may in turn be approved, in writing, by the local authority. – Fever reporter

SOUTH Africa boasts some of the tallest and most magnificent buildings on the continent and indeed the Southern Hemisphere. Our big five buildings comprise an assortment of modern wonders and sky scraping marvels. The Carlton Centre has been the tallest building in Africa for over 40 years. The 50 storey skyscraper was built in 1973 with a foundation that extends 35 metres below street level. The Carlton Hotel was originally the building’s main purpose, with a five star rating and boasting 30 floors. The hotel, located in downtown Johannes­ burg, was an international attraction to the rich and famous. Margaret Thatcher, Hillary Clinton and Mick Jag­ ger were each guests at the hotel in its heyday. Since being moth­balled in 1997, the 223m structure now houses offices for commerce and shops for re­ tailers. The Ponte City skyscraper is the tallest office building in Africa. It also boasts the largest sign in the southern hemisphere. Located in Hillbrow, it was a casualty of gang affiliated degradation. The building fell into disrepair in the early 1980s and has since struggled to attract any permanent source of revitalisation. Ponte City stands at 173m and is 54 storeys tall.

15 Towering over our commercial capital, the Reserve Bank building in Pretoria required 80 000 cubic metres of concrete to construct

The cylindrical building was built in 1975 and was de­ signed to let light in all the down to the ground floor through its hollow centre. With 32 floors and three basement levels, the Marble towers in Johannesburg glistens above the city’s skyline. The building is built primarily out of marble and has the largest electronic billboard in the southern hemisphere. The Marble Towers stands 152m above street lev­ el and houses multiple offices and corporate enti­ ties. The financial institution Sanlam, currently owns the building and its eight storey parking garage. The Pearl Dawn, a part of the complex known as the Pearls of Umhlanga, is the fourth tallest building in South Africa. At 152m tall it boasts 31 floors as a hotel that overlooks the beach. The tallest building in Durban houses 144 apartments and is only four years old, having been completed in 2010. The South African Reserve Bank building, meas­ uring up to 150m tall, is the fifth tallest building in South Africa. Built in 1988, it is the tallest building in Pretoria. The Reserve Bank building has 38 floors and is built out of concrete with a black glass façade. Despite its intimidating size and lustre the building was built in two years from 1986 to 1988.

>> Gamalakhe Football Association made use of the TB Molefe sports grounds for its weekly fixtures DAVID STEYN

>>sports@feveronline.co.za GAMALAKHE was the stage set for an epic soccer showdown last weekend. The Gamalakhe Football Association made use of the TB Molefe sports grounds for its weekly fixtures, and fans were not left wanting. In an interview during the match Mthko Ncama said he was always at the grounds over weekends.

He has been attending matches since he was a child and would never miss a weekend at TB Molefe. “It’s a passion from when I was a child.” A passion, he says, he will pass down to future generations. The weekend began with prelim matches on Saturday with follow-up matches on Sunday. The match between heavyweights — The Bafana and Madiba Stars ended with a 2-1

win to the boys. Star player for The Bafana Ndonyela Nhlandla, who is rated second on the Eyethu Premier League Scorer’s log did not disappoint, with some great manoeuvering, ball control and field placement. Another close call took place between Hibberdene United and HCM Legend, ending in a nail-biting 2-1 win to Hibberdene. Ngaleko Sboniso, the top striker for Special x1 and Ngqwang Sivuyile

of Red Swallows faced off as their teams clashed for a close 3-2 win for Special x1. Sboniso and Sivuyile are both ranked fourth on the scorer’s log and showed that they had as much to prove to each other as to their fans. A great game was played all around with some top-notch playing. This weekend the Eyethu Premier League log is led by Murchison United with a total of 16 points, five wins and

one draw. The Bafana take second place with 12 points, four wins and two losses. Trailing by a thin margin, Red Swallows stand at 11 points and Madiba Stars at 10. The Eyethu player’s log is led by Darison Hadden of Marburg United with seven points. Hadden is followed by Ndonyela Nhlandla and Sphiwe Nyawose, who are tied at four points each. Mthko Ncama has spent years in this spot enjoying the weekly soccer at the TB Molefe sports grounds in Gamalakhe.

Municipality Ward 3 residents. The 13 team members hailed from the Masinenge informal settlement, Shelly Beach, Izotsha and the local farming community. Coming from all walks of life, the players’ ages ranged from teenagers to middle-age, with everyone appreciating the equality afforded them by the sport. The Ward 3 councillor, Elvis Ndovela spent many hours putting together the tournament, saying he had the desire to empower the youth and provide them with focus and drive. “Soccer is a sport of friendships,” said Ndovela. The teams practised for up to four times a week to prepare for the playoffs and were thankful for the opportunity they were given to play, showing their gratitude through the hours they dedicated to training. Ndovela, a player for Real Masters, one of the participating teams, sported his team’s colours as he mixed with the players. He looked on with a smile at the unfolding events and was glad at the tournament turnout. The captain of Real Masters, Patrick Ntsiza was in high spirirts as his team were the first to take to the field. After a pre-match huddle the tournament got off to a flying start. Real Masters took no prisoners as the day progressed.

Sharks at the bottom of the ocean don’t pay much attention to divers.

DAVID STEYN

Banks now receiving international recognition as one of the world’s premier shark­viewing sites, the local industry is booming. The increase in baited shark div­ ing has had no apparent effect on local reef life. Local diver master Kyle Robertson maintains that fish populations are stable and there is no change in shark behaviour while the number of whale birthings has increased. Enthusiasts from Europe, the United States and Australia frequent our dive charters in search of the diving experience with hammerheads, bull and tiger sharks. A dive usually lasts about an hour and can involve a trip to the shallower Southern Pinnacles for eagle rays, sharks and reef fish. During winter, on the Northern Pinnacles of Protea, one can expect to visit a system of caves that are home to “raggies” which use them for mating.

Potato bass are some of the Protea Banks residents.

THE FEAR of sharks is instilled and fuelled by misin­ formation. According to local diver and instructor Kym Pollard, sharks pose no threat to divers and no special training is required to experience the feeling of being underwater with them. Anyone with a PADI Open Water qualification, a course that takes only a few days to complete, can dive with sharks. Although a sport requiring technical gear and training, scuba diving is not beyond the means of those with a love of the ocean. “You’re only alive if you dive,” Pollard says. Scuba divers regularly delve to the depths of the Protea Banks reef. The reef is located seven and a half kilometres offshore of Shelly Beach. With Protea
