FTER weeks of vigorous preparations, Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) area manager for Ugu District, Simphiwe Yeni, said the 2014 National and Provincial Elections proceeded according to plan. A total of 118 voting stations in the district opened at 7am on Wednesday for locals to exercise their democratic right to vote. “I received a phone call at 5:12am from police officers at Margate saying that people were already there queuing to vote. That’s how eager people were,” he said. He added that while driving past a voting station at about 4:30am in Umzumbe, a group of people had already gathered outside. “I was amazed at how much interest the people of this district have shown.” He did say, however, that he was disappointed at the number of people, particularly youngsters, who visited many of the IEC offices in the district two weeks prior to the elections to ask if they could still register to vote. “This is something we as South Africans must work towards for the 2016 local government elections. We must all encourage and persuade youngsters to register to vote.” He said there was a strong police presence at voting stations and that officials were asked to keep a close eye on any unwarranted behaviour. There were reports of ANC supporters toy-toying in Jesus Location, Bhobhoyi, but no acts of violence were reported. At the Port Shepstone Civic Centre polling station, voting got off to a slow start in the morning but picked up pace as excited voters arrived to make their mark. The mood was upbeat and jovial as some voters chatted outside after casting their ballots. IEC officials at the station said no serious incidents had been reported by midday.

Pila Peaceman Juqula votes for the first time at Marburg Secondary.

“BUILDING a strong foundation for children starts at a young age. I have spoken to my pupils about voting. I want them to grow up knowing that when their time comes, they must vote and be heard.” She added that if a person did not vote, then they did not have a right to complain. “If you want to see change and if you want a better South Africa, you have to vote.”

‘WHEN THEIR TIME COMES, THEY MUST VOTE AND BE HEARD’

“I DID not register to vote in the previous election and I regret it. I made it my priority to register for this election,” he said. Juqula said that after studying quantity surveying at the Durban University of Technology, he battled to get a job. “I also battled financially while studying and I would like to see government providing more bursariesforpeoplewhowanttostudy. So many people havethepotential, but not everybody has the money.” He added that he is now employed but would also like to see morejobcreation. “My friends are still battling to get a job. I’m glad I finally have a permanent job so I can help my brother who is now studying.”

Voting for essential services GINISILE NDOVELA

BY the time the polling stations opened at 7am at Bhobhoyi, Phansiphansi and KwaNgwabe, IEC offi­ cials were already standing by to assist the multitudes of expected voters. Casting her vote for the fifth time in Bhobhoyi was Gogo Thokozile Ntuli (82), who said: “I voted for a party that I believe will pro­ vide water into my house. “My problem is that I am old and I can’t fetch water far away from the commu­ nal tap. I voted for a party that will provide free educa­ tion for our grandchildren and take care of orphans,” said Gogo Ntuli. Her friend, Arosia Ndelu, said she voted for a party that she believes will pro­ vide houses to the people and water closer to the people. “Right now, we do not have houses at Bhobhoyi and we have no water in our houses,” said Ndelu. Bantubakubo Ngobese said he woke up early to vote for a party he believes will change his life and that of young people. “I voted to see change and I want to see decent houses being built at our homes. We also need li­ braries in Bhobhoyi for the youth to learn. We have no jobs. We sit at homes so we need jobs,” he said. IEC presiding officer for Phansiphansi voting sta­ tion, Thembisile Mhlongo, said it was all systems go for the fair and free elec­ tions and she foresaw no problems. She said turnout was pleasing.

Residents from nearby who heard a commotion took to Facebook to dis­ cuss what had happened. Reports said there was a brawl which was followed by gunshots, how­ ever police dispute this. Margate police spokesperson, captain Gerald Mfeka confirmed that a fight did indeed occur between a patron of the pub and a car guard. The guard, Vusi Mjwara (25), said to be under the influence of alcohol, was assaulted and was bleeding profusely when police responded. “The victim was taken to hospital for treatment. Nobody knows why the argument broke out but I can confirm that there were no shots fired,” he said. Nobody has been charged.

Goodson Stanley Mbhele (47) was killed in a tavern brawl on Saturday night.

MARGATE policeman was stabbed in the chest after a brawl with a patron at a tavern in Nositha Location on Saturday night. Warrant Officer Goodson Stanely Mbhele (47) was off-duty at the time. He died at the scene. Police spokesperson, Captain Gerald Mfeka, said details as to what transpired were still speculative and that investigations were continuing. “Two people were taken in for questioning and released. The perpetrator is still at large and police are

working tirelessly to find the suspect,” said Mfeka. Mbhele had just celebrated 20 years of service with the SAPS on April 8. He worked in various departments over the years, including crime prevention, before becoming a detective. Brigadier Morris Moodley, who attended the scene with Margate SAPS management, said colleagues were deeply saddened by the detective’s death. “It is a sad time for us. We offer our condolences to his family,” said Moodley. Mbhele is survived by a wife and 13 children.

A bystander said the oc­ cupants of the vehicle were “very lucky to be alive”. Suicide Bend gained its name because of the many accidents and lives lost there over the years. The Department of Transport erected signage and placed rumble strips at the approach to the bend a few years ago, but motor­ ists say the 80km­zone still poses a danger.

>>news1@feveronline.co.za PROVINCIAL community coordinator for Afriforum, Chris Fourie, has called for the disbandment of Ugu District Municipali­ ty because of its “failure to supply water to residents” and for becoming “chroni­

Afriforum launches campaign to disband Ugu cally ineffective”. This comes after the South Coast region experienced water interruptions that started in February and worsened after several months, leading to a “Stop Ugu” campaign being launched in Ramsgate, along with a web­ site. Fourie said residents of the South Coast have in the past few years wit­ nessed a “drastic deterioration” in service delivery.

“During the past month, Ugu failed to supply water to our tourism areas and upon request was unable or unwilling to inform residents when repairs were to be completed”. According to Fourie, these events have placed Ugu in the chronically inept cate­ gory and their failure to deal with the problem has left AfriForum with no alter­ native but to institute action. Ugu District municipal manager,

Dhanpalan Naidoo, said that the munici­ pality is aware of Afriforum’s initiative to seek support for disbandment. “Whilst the Constitution grants citi­ zens the freedom to engage in such civic liberties, such a call must be based on factual information. “We will unashamedly declare that we have challenges with water provision wherein our demand far exceeds our sup­ ply. This coupled with our ageing infra­

structure magnifies our challenges. “We have to provide water to areas not reticulated before and still upgrade infrastructure to deal with increased de­ mand in existing supply areas,” said Naidoo. He said that he believes that, not withstanding their challenges, Ugu Dis­ trict Municipality is meeting its constitu­ tional mandate of providing access to po­ table water for local citizens.

Bringing film to the coast

>> South Coast Tourism brings KZN film commission CEO to area for recce along our shores

I

n its endeavours to minimalise seasonality surges and see consistent and increased foot traffic and spend to the paradise of the Zulu Kingdom, Ugu South Coast Tourism recently invited the KwaZulu-Natal Film Commission’s (KZNFC) CEO Carol Coetzee for a sightseeing tour and a brainstorming session. The mandate of the newly formed KZN Film Commission,a public entity based in Durban, is to source and secure film and television productions both nationally and internationallyasawaytoincreaseeconomic development in the province. This includes commercials, documentaries, stills, television series and feature films as well as any form of audio visual content that the world is consuming to be filmed in the diverse offerings of KZN. “This is one of the most exciting challenges I have taken up to date. Having worked as head for the KZN

Department of Economic Development for over five years, I feel that we are ready to take on this challenge. We understand what it takes to attract investment into a destination and the film sector is an untapped gem. “After extensive research, our strategy is geared to meet global demands. We believe this is an excellent beginning of great things to come,” said Coetzee. Ugu South Coast Tourism’s CEO, Justin Mackrory said he is equally positive about the way forward. “For a long time now I have wanted to put film tourism as a key driver into changing the face of seasonality in the greater South Coast area. “Asadestination,wehavesomuch on offer, so much so that already the first lead generated through the Film Commission is looking very promisinginthatwecouldbehostingamultimillion rand television production,”

This is where Roy Dibley from the Antique Warehouse, a Cape Town based company can help. He offers a free no obligation home visit service to view, value, appraise, and even buy your hidden treasures.

Its an old saying that we all wish was true. But it is likely that you do have items in your home that are rare, valuable, or collectable and you just don’t know, or are unsure of their value, and you don’t know an expert to ask. This is where Roy Dibley from the Antique Warehouse, a Cape Town based company can help. He offers a free no obligation home visit service to view, value, appraise, and even buy your hidden treasures. Roy tells us he is interested in the old and unusual items as well as the more obvious such as Jewellery, Watches, Medals, old Coins, Silver and Gold in any form or condition. Roy says he loves to go through Granddads old chest or Granny’s jewellery box. I have found the most valuable things in the strangest of places. Like gold chains in the children’s dress up closet, and war medals in the

bottom of great aunt’s sewing box. And lets face it we all have things sitting in drawers, boxes and safes that we don’t know what to do with. The children don’t want it, is another thing Roy often hears, what do they want old candle sticks and silver trays for, and what would they do with uncle Bob’s old war memorabilia they did not even know him. Wouldn’t you be better off getting paid for it. Roy has an eye that has been trained to spot rarities, be it an old watch, a medal or a vase. And with over 30 years experience he knows what he is talking about. So if you have items you are unsure about or things you know about and want them valued or sold give Roy a call. He will be in your area for the next week. Nothing is too small or too much. And let’s face it in this economy we would all like the cash for the pot of gold we might be sitting on.

ALLERY 4 art shop at the South Coast Mall held a five-day exhibition last week where a number of notable artists displayed their work. Event organiser and one of the exhibitors, Diane Erasmus, said this was the last exhibition before the shop relocates as a result of alterations planned for the mall. Titled “Wishful thinking,” the exhibition displayed works by Izidro Duarte, Rob Wareing, Marke Meyer, Anton Benzon, Diane Erasmus, Keith Erasmus, Everett Duarte and Frances Schandera-Duarte. Diane said the event was a success and a number of sales were made. “We would like to thank everyone for the support we have received over the years,” said Diane. Gallery 4 has been at the South Coast mall for the past five years and Diane said they hoped to relocate to Ramsgate.

Ugu apologises for water shortages UGU District Municipality has apologised to affected residents of Gamalakhe who experienced water disruptions during the past week. Ugu Spokesperson Sipho Khuzwayo said this was due to water restrictions by foreign objects which caused blockages. “The more serious challenges which caused water disruptions to certain areas was the location of a faulty valve and a damaged meter which were immediately fixed. “Additional teams were dispatched to the area to assist. It is hoped that once an

additional pipeline to Gamalakhe is commissioned water disruptions will be minimised,” said Khuzwayo. He pointed out that the non-functionality of certain systems for various reasons is also causing water disruptions and therefore interventions have to be made to balance these systems. “All these systems are receiving attention and it is hoped that the solutions being implemented will bring long term relief.

How KZN’s ‘big cable’ syndicate crew was nabbed NEWS

‘Operation Nuclear’ has slowed theft of Eskom and Transnet cables to a trickle, reports ROWAN PHILP …

O

N a cloudless night, a single lightning flash lights up the skies of Hibberdene. A moment after a man yanks on a long rope connected to a bolt cutter dangling four metres above the railway line; the 11 000 volts of the green flame melts the soil between the sleepers into a kind of clay. Waiting for the cable to cool, he doesn’t know that two private investigators and a Hawks task team are parked in the darkness nearby. Tall, scarred and looking older than his 38 years, the Mozambican man shoots pool to unwind and prefers Johnny Walker and Chivas Regal. When women call him on his cellphone to make a date - and many do -he responds “just call me Million”. At the heist, he phones his driver to collect his loaders and drop them at the scene to bundle the copper. There are roughly 10 similar “lightning” flashes every night in KwaZulu-Natal, no matter the weather, as copper syndicates short out power lines at municipal substations and road-side power lines. However, that single flash in Hibberdene in November signalled the end of a major syndicate and a crippling 20 month phenomenon in KZN - the theft of “big cable”. An ex-colonel with the SAPS, Jan Wolmarans - head of cable theft for a Combined Private Investigations, which tackles copper syndicates for Eskom and Transnet - had been tailing Million since his team tried to strip the overhead cables from Ashburton the night before the bust. At massive personal risk, two undercover Hawks officers infiltrat-

ed the crew and had built up a case which now includes racketeering charges. Wolmarans says theft of the big 88 000 volt Eskom lines and the 11 000 volt Transnet lines “basically didn’t exist” in KZN until Million and the rest of his syndicate moved from Mpumalanga in March

2012. For the next 20 months, the parastatalssuffered“tensofmillions” in losses as overhead cables were stripped twice each week, from Estcourt down to Hibberdene, and up to Richards Bay. Last year alone, CPI recorded 86 crime scenes in KZN, in which over-

head cables owned by Eskom or Transnet were cut - “and in every case, trains were delayed or the power was out”. Wolmarans says a joint CPI/ Hawks project, called Operation Nuclear, took down the big cable syndicate in two dramatic busts: one in

September 2012, and one in November last year, with 32 members now on trial. He said that while Telkom, Prasa, municipalities and the mines are increasingly plundered in KZN, the theft of Eskom and Transnet overhead cable has since reduced to a trickle. On that night of the Hibberdene flash, Million and his seven colleagues bundled 680 kg of cable into two bakkies, and - heading for their buyer, north of Durban - drove out into a trap. Hawks detectives, dog unit officers, and tactical response police joined Wolmarans and his colleague, Nico Smith, as they blocked the copper crew at a robot. Million bolted on foot. “That Million ran 20 kilometres from us, barefoot, never stopping - an incredible feat of fitness,” said Wolmarans. He said the blitz on KZN’s overhead cables began when four cable thieves escaped from the Hazeyview policestation inMpumalangainearly 2012. He said the escapees and their Highveld gang fled to Durban, and split into two crews, triggering months of mayhem. But Daveyton appears to be the national headquarters for copper syndicates. One expert told The Fever that suspects had reported an organised criminal “training school” there, where cutters were taught how to safely short-out live lines. Following Operation Nuclear, 32 alleged syndicate members are now facing trial in Pietermaritzburg.

Billionaire’s ambitious cash-for-truth incentive DESIREE ERASMUS

B

REAKING: in a move called “dumb and incredibly dangerous”, members of the South African government who sit in executive positions have taken a unanimous vote to “tell the truth at all costs”. The decision allegedly materialised after an international billionaire funder – who will remain anonymous until some random 12-year-old hacks official emails – is said to have pledged $1 million for each “truth” told in parliament and at public rallies and conferences. The move comes after the billionaire allegedly had the revelation while beating his head against a brick wall at the out-

come of South Africa’s recent national election. Such was the enthusiasm of thenation’spublic servants to “get involved and make a difference” through “Truthgate” that for the first time in its recorded history, all representatives stayed awake during the latest parliamentary sitting to vote. This included an 85-year-old political veteran who was allegedly in a coma for the past 20 years. Speaking after the voting session, one official told the floor: “Comrades, I am happy with the outcome of the Truthgate vote because it grates my biscuit to sit here and lie about having a master’s degree in politics. I am just a failed chef with a KFC fetish. “Also, I am sick of calling everyone comrade; it’s very 1994.” A second official then took to the floor and stated: “Fellow countrymen and women, I am excited at the potential upliftment that can be achieved through Truthgate. “Finally I have a chance to tell constituents that an overflowing sewage pipe alongside a crèche is not a health hazard – it is an op-

portunity for the community to pull together and shovel the sh*t themselves. The sh*t can then be used as a nice compost on the community vegetable garden that we may build in 2016. “In the interim, the shovelled sh*t can be placed next to the roundabout and slide as a little climbing mountain for kiddies.” Speaking from uMhlanga after taking her vote via Skype during a botox party, one official told the Fever: “The potential ramifications of Truthgate are enormous and heartening. “With Truthgate comes the opportunity to finally meet our millennium development goals – the ones that have been slightly tweaked for our area.

‘IN THE INTERIM, THE SHOVELLED SH*T CAN BE PLACED NEXT TO THE ROUNDABOUT AND SLIDE AS A LITTLE CLIMBING MOUNTAIN FOR KIDDIES’

“Truthgate finally gives me the opportunity to satisfy my Messiah complex and to emulate Oprah by canvassing among the middle and working classes. I now feel no shame in donning my latex gloves so I can give sales assistants and domestic workers a pat on their grubby clothing. “In fact, I can now unashamedly utilise public funds to book a five-star retreat and take potential future school-girl voters from the street there in order to give them free manicures and pedicures. “Looking good while you are getting educated can go a long way in building a girl-child’s prospects; this way she can marry rich and will hopefully never have to think independently again. You get one, I get one, we all get free manis and pedis,” she hollered. UPDATE: The billionaire funder has since clarified that he will be paying those partaking in Truthgate in the Zimbabwean dollar, a defunct currency. People interviewed for this article have since denied any knowledge of Truthgate or the above statements.

er parties and even those who want to share their “brilliant efforts” made in the past four years. We’ve also received invitations to many political events around the province. With the price of petrol coming down this week, the number of keys that have been handed to new home owners and food parcels, many South Africans hope that elections would take place annual-

ly. We’ve also had the privilege of meeting residents who spoke about casting their vote for the first time in 1994. They shared their joyous stories describing the moment they felt they were a part of South Africa’s history when they made their mark. After a spate of public holidays, many locals have been soaking up the last few rays of the summer sun as they took time to

enjoy their time off at the beach. Some were totally unaware that elections were days away. We would like to hear about your voting experience. Share your thoughts with the Fever.

AFRICA BIKE WEEK

Bikers ride through town during Africa Bike Week in Margate. PHOTO: ROBERT MCKENZIE KZN EMS

Appreciation for Bike Week BIKERS! A word which some of the so-called locals prefer to be a swear word and others, like myself, appreciate. Although I am living on a semipermanent base in the Hibiscus Coast region, there are many reasons why I enjoy the bikers’ company. In the first place, I am over 65 and can’t afford one of these expensive luxuries.The second rea-

son is the financial boost to the Hibiscus Coast region, which we all need. Then there is the dedication which went into all these bikes and the spotless display which bikers as well as “non-bikers” can enjoy. As a photographer I have never missed-out on this event in the past six years and hope there are more to come. Tom Prins

Think about the jobless FREEDOM Day has come and gone, so has Workers’ Day and the national elections. For some these days have ushered in some “winds of change;” while in others the rain would have brought in “tears of joy” and for many the sunshine would have been the“rays of hope.” Whilst celebrating our secret joys, let’s spare a thought for the almost six million young and eager-for-jobs South Africans, who have either become victims of our education system or the lack of it. The State is guilty of tardiness in creating jobs and the unfair legislation of Affirmative Action. Let us spare a second thought for victims of our country’s backbreaker – the strikes. The 13-week-old platinum mine strike has cost the industry almost R15 billion and the workers almost three months’ pay. The unions and their bosses, who have really lost nothing here, are demanding a basic wage of

R12 500 per month, which the mines cannot afford. In the face of this affront from the unions, the mines have taken their offer directly to the workers. The unions are not happy about this, but workers have rights too. They have the right to sell their labour to anyone they please and many have replied via sms that they wish to return. Forthesepeople,Workers’Day would have been a gloomy day. What a golden opportunity for the government of the day to step in as honest broker and help miners, workers and unions reach a compromise - honest, being the operative word. So while we may enjoy these days, spare a thought for the jobless and another for the damage these extended weekends are doing to our economy. And spare a thought for our children who go without lessons because schools have closed for entire weeks. J.R. Port Shepstone

Praise for Ugu Health I WOULD like to praise the staff of the Ugu Health Department for tak­ ing time out of their busy schedule to see me. They came all the way to visit me in my home and listened to my problems. I asked if we could have flu pills, multi­vitamins and vitamin C at the clinic. They told me that the national government decides what medicine we get at the clinic and all clinics throughout the country get the same medicine. I requested that we get a psychol­ ogist at the local clinics like other municipalities have. They told me they do not have budget for it. I do not believe this, con­

sidering all I’ve read in the newspaper about Ugu’s mismanagement of funds, but I did not argue because Iknowtheseparticularstaffarenotthe decision makers in this regard. I complained about the psychia­ trist at Port Shepstone Regional Hos­ pital and they said they’ll talk to him. They told me that they want to hear people’s complaints and feedback. I relayed my thanks to the govern­ ment for providing my chronic medi­ cation at the clinic each month. It’s made a huge difference to my life and has allowed me to live a nor­ mal life. I just want to give praise where it’s due. Shellique Carby

Why don’t you whinge about Bike Week too? I AM glad that this Bike Week and the noise it brought with it is over. What I’ll bet on not happening is a flurry of letters from residents complaining about the noise, as happens every time we host our own events in public areas in Margate and at the beach, even during daytime. I know well that those complaints won’t be coming because of double standards and that some sections of our population still consider them-

selves better than others. I live in Margate and the whole weekend my family and I were kept awake by the sound of thousands of motor bikes driving up and down my street. It was only on Sunday that I could finally get a peaceful sleep. My sister, who lives in Umtentweni, experienced the same problem as bikers were driving up and down her street at all hours of night and day. These double standards and une-

qual treatment greatly influenced my vote because I know that should a party like the DA win the election, it would mean a reversal back to apartheid. I’m very happy that the ANC is going to win these elections and what should be done now is to make sure that we all treat each other as equals. Those who whinge unnecessarily should know that they have no choice but to integrate. Thabo Magagula

ARGATE feral cats, Percy and Supercat are most probably the only South Coasters that have never attended Africa Bike Week. Their care-giver, Coleen Walther, has made a standing reservation at the SPCA for a week, every year during bike week. “They’re safer at the SPCA because Margate is so busy. I also book them in for New Year’s Eve,” she said. Percy made the Mugg and Bean his home about eight years ago while Supercat was a kitten when he was found in Margate three years ago. Walther, who is a waitress at Larry’s restaurant on Margate beach, takes care of the cats at night while she’s at work. Percy spends his day at the Mugg and Bean, also on Margate beachfront and then runs across the road to Larry’s when Walther begins her shift. “Everybody in Margate knows Percy and Supercat. Everybody loves them,” she said. Walther provides food not only for these two cats but 30 others that live in the Shoprite parking lot and eight more that live near a salon. “People are amazed at how they respond to me when I feed them,” she said.

Lynne Harley, public relations officer for SPCA with Supercat, and Coleen Walther with Percy. The female cats have all been spayed, except for one which Walther says she’s trying very hard to catch. “It’s the responsible thing to do. We don’t want more cats on the streets that are going to suffer. There are others who also take care of feral cats and we try our best to get them

spayed.” Supercat got his name from someone on Facebook because of the vshaped design under his neck. “I asked people on a Facebook group for a name. Someone suggested Supercat because the pattern on his fur was similar to Superman.”

DID YOU KNOW? Subantarctic fur seals hunt in shallow waters at night, when myctophid fish come close to the surface. They also feed on squid.

FTER seven months in rehab,Minion, a young Subantarctic fur seal, returned to the ocean just before sunrise on Friday. He arrived at uShaka Sea World on 28 September last year in a severely compromised condition after being found stranded on the beach at Port Edward. Unfortunately, he had sustained injuries to his flipper and lower back, possibly the result of a shark bite, but after a few days in the care of the uShaka rehabilitation staff, he started eating well and it was clear that he had a strong will to survive. His progress was slow but steady and it took seven months before he was fit enough for release. For the first few months he did little other than lie on the side of the pool, perking up only at feeding times. As he grew stronger he spent more and more time in the water and by January 2014 he was spending the

better half of the day swimming, grooming, and strengthening his back muscles which had suffered trauma of unknown origin. Minion was not an affectionate seal and could be quite cantankerous if he did not receive the response he hoped for, from his care givers. His great passion was eating and when the cooler box emptied after a healthy meal he was vocally unforgiving and took a while to settle down again. He was dearly loved by the staff who were in awe of his tenacious spirit and they dedicated hundreds of hours caring for this little champion until finally the day arrived when the uShaka’s resident veterinarian gave him the all clear for release. uShaka Sea World is a long way from Minion’s home which we imagine would be in the region of Marion and Prince Edward Islands and he needed to be released as

close tohisfeedinggroundsas possible. In preparation for release he was flown to Bayworld in Port Elizabeth where he was fitted with a Telonics satellite tag before heading out to sea in a rubber duck. Minion was released 15 nautical miles from Cape Receife and about 12 nautical miles from closest shore. Once the door of his crate was opened he went straight to the sea without hesitation. He initially seemed to head towards land but then curved south towards the continental shelf which is exactly what was hoped he would do. uShaka will receive daily reports and keep track of Minion’s movements over the next year. This data and the data transmitted by other seals including Selso the elephant seal, who were fitted with satellite tags, is being monitored and managed by oceans and coasts.

JUSTIN MACKRORY: CEO SOUTH COAST TOURISM

Filming potential on the Greater South Coast

L

AST week we hosted Carol Coetzee, the new CEO of the KwaZulu-Natal Film Commission (KZNFC). The purpose of her visit was not only to witness the impact Africa Bike Week has on Margate and environs, but also to establish a strong working relationship between ourselves and this influential commission. Ugu South Coast Tourism was the first in KZN to provide KZNFC with

an initial resumé of our film potentials in our coastal and rural destinations and, going forward, we anticipate presenting to them with a comprehensive film prospectus. This prospectus would profile our filming assets in terms of the diversity of locations, accommodation and hospitality offerings, transportation (e.g. Margate Airport), production and logistical support and a host of other skills that are evident here within the Ugu district.

Needless to say, the CEO was impressed with not only the destination, but also that we have an inhouse team who have film-industry experience at our fingertips. In the process of us crafting a really great prospectus, we invite those who may be able to make a valid contribution to this process (i.e. skills and visual material) to please contact Nikki Tilley at marketing@tourismsouth coast.co.za The economic impact of film

within a broad geographic area is vast. Not only does the hospitality sector derive benefit as teams of professionals come into town, but also in terms of extras, set-building and other locally sourced technical requirements — all requiring payment and skills utilisation. The additional global publicity value is incalculable, but vast. Not long ago, a certain Mr L. DiCaprio was on set here for the film Blood Diamonds, which made an un-

DR NASH

expected contribution towards our tourism industry. If we can, with the KZNFC, strategically bring films from Europe, the U.S. the near and Far East to our area, the Greater South Coast will be all the richer as a film destination of merit. We meet with the KZNFC again during Indaba 2014 so, who knows, our locals may in future have a stepping stone to bigger things in the film, video and advert-production world. Have a great week in paradise.

Hubby visits his parents on daily basis Husband is aggressive, domineering Dear Doctor Nash,

Dear Mrs M.B,

Dear Doctor Nash,

I HAVE a husband who has not yet cut the apron strings. He just has to visit his parents every chance he can. I am happy for him to go when I am doing something like my dancing classes, but they are only twice a week and he wants to visit every night, Monday to Friday. Now he is trying to get me to watch soapies from 5pm to 6pm, Mondays to Fridays so that he can then go to visit his parents. I am fine with him going twice a week when I am at my dance class, or he can make supper and then visit his parents over the weekend, once a month, with me, his wife. What is going to happen when we have children? How do I get my husband to concentrate on us? Mrs M.B.

You are a jewel among the ladies. You are not addicted to the pernicious soapies. For your husband - what is his case or is he reacting to your twice weekly dance classes? Certainly, to visit his parents five nights a week seems a little often, and could even hint that he is not finding sufficient happiness in your company. How long have you been married and howlonghasthishabitofhisbeenonthego?What does he want out of his marriage? Once you take out his working hours and his visiting hours and time asleep, there is not much left in which to build love and marriage. I think you must have a straight talk with husband and ask him what a marriage partnership needs to survive. If he doesn’t know, send him to his parents.

MY husband is aggressive, domineering and the smallest thing sets him off. He always threatens divorce and then it all blows over. It has been like this for years. We talk about it and then back to square one. Then something sets him off again and hebecomes domineering, controlling and sarcastic. Over the years the children and I have learnt to cope but it is getting too much, and we are all suffering. He can be so nice, but he blames me for everything, he is never at fault. We have a good business and a good home, but for him something always goes wrong. He blames me and then he sulks, like a spoilt little boy, He has all the answers. Everything must be his way. Lost Lady

Dear Lost Lady, I think there are many other “Lost Ladies” out there with you. So many of today’s males really think they are the answer to a woman’s prayer. Your man obviously sees himself as a leader, and he does seem to have a good side to him which seems to be covered by his domineering and almost a fear of being wrong or blamed. I doubt whether he would see a psychologist. I suggest that you could benefit from consulting a good clinical psychologist who may enable you to work on strategies that could in turn make a difference to husband and how he sees himself. It would certainly enable you to build yourself up and also help you to be constructive in the family relationship.

Hyundai’s Accent hatchback … Rear coil springs mounted independently over modified shock absorbers and placed on the ends of the tor­ sion beam create more space in the cabin and ensure a pliant ride over Gauteng’s tar roads and a short section of dirt. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

The Accent comes belatedly to SA, but packed to the gunwales with luxuries to take on other hatches. ALWYN VILJOEN took it for a quick drive.

S

TANLEY Anderson, marketing director at Hyundai Automotive South Africa, explained that the only reason the Ac­ cent hatchback was not launched earlier in South Africa was a supply and importance issue. In global distribution rankings, South Africa ranks only 11th among the countries importing Hyundai’s vehicles. We buy 50 305 sedans, hatches and bakkies, com­ pared with China’s 1 010 086 (first­ placed) and seventh­placed Australia’s 97 006 ve­ hicles. But now, he said, the time is ripe to launch the two­year­old Accent hatch lo­ cally for a slice of the B­segment pie against the Mazda3, Toyota Auris, Chevro­ let Sonic and Cruze, Opel Astra, and even stable mate the Kia Cerato. Anderson said he is so confident about the Accent’s pricing and specification that he has advised his competing importers at Kia that they may want to order fewer Cer­ atohatchesinthecomingmonths.Hedoes not expect the Accent to cannibalise sales from the Hyundai stable either.

“The Accent hatchback fits in very well in the local Hyundai range between the i20 and i30 hatchbacks — not only in terms of price, but also when it comes to interior space for passengers as well as luggage storage,” said Anderson. Retailing for just under R235 000 for the six­speed manual and R245 000 for thelong­gearedfour­speedauto(nottest­ ed), the Accent hatch prices range be­ tween R225 K and a quarter of a million rand. In this segment, the Ford Fiesta is king, with over 13% market share, followed by the Toyota Auris (12,7%) and the Ford Focus (11,9%). To take on the market lead­ ers, Anderson priced the Accent to come with everything a young family could need, from a multifunction steering wheel up­ front to lots of leg room in the rear. Every­ thing is ergonomically placed. The electric sidemirrorandautomaticwindowcontrols are integrated in the driver’s door armrest, while there is a sliding armrest in the mid­ dle of the seats up front. The centre con­ sole houses iPod, USB and Aux ports where

themultimediadeviceswon’tgetbumped. Of note is how idiot­friendly the Accent’s integrated Bluetooth is, linking as it did within seconds to any of the phones with Bluetooth in the car. Compare this to the “linked but not paired” results which was all Witness Wheels could achieve with the newFordandChevroletsystems,whichare reportedly both excellent — if you are of the Selfie generation and not born on the wrong side of the first moon landing. In the Accent, we paired the phones to make phone calls and stream music wire­ lessly though the audio system. Another luxury now considered a standard option and often overlooked is the air conditioner. TheTataandEtiosmodelssetthebarhere, withveryefficientcoolingsystems.TheAc­ cent’s four­speed air conditioner did a good job to cool the rear of the cabin quick­ ly. The Accent’s boot swallows 370 litres with the 60:40 seats extended, which is a carry­on bag less than the Kia Cerato and a whole 117 litres bigger than the capacity

of the smaller Chevrolet Sonic. The Accent hatch can do dirt roads too, riding 14,7 cm high (only the Chevrolet Sonic and Kia Cer­ ato are higher among competitors), al­ though this is not enough to take on a farm road. Rear coil springs mounted independ­ ently over modified shock absorbers and placedontheendsofthetorsionbeamcre­ ate more space in the cabin and ensure a pliant ride over Gauteng’s tar roads and a short section of dirt. Down Under, the Accent Hatchback scored a five­star safety rating in the Aus­ tralian New Car Assessment Programme (AnCap), coming with driver and passen­ ger air bags, complemented by side and curtain air bags, and seat­belt pretension­ ersforthedriverandfrontpassenger’sseat belts. The rear bench has two three­point safety belts with a lap belt in the middle seat. Stopping is courtesy of disks all round, with Active safety Anti­lock Braking Sys­ tem (ABS) and Electronic Brake­force Dis­

tribution (EBD) standard. When it comes to power, there is little to choose between the 1,6 mills in the Hyundai Accent (91 kW/156 Nm) and the Toyota Auris (97 kW/160 Nm), although both these hatches have to stand back for the Chev’s 1,4 turbo, which makes 103 kW and 200 Nm. The Accent has a timing chain, which with careful driving, can last as long as the engine and does not require to be changed as often as a timing belt. In terms of price, the Accent offers a lot ofstandardfeatures,butsodoestheChev­ rolet Sonic RS, which is at this stage R18 600 cheaper and a decent hatch to boot, while the Kia Cerato saves the buyer R9 905 on the Accent’s tag and the Toyota Auris XS leaves R4 500 change. Hyundai boasts a five­ year/150 000 km warranty (with a lot of fine print worth reading), a five­year/90 000 km service plan and five­year/150 000 km roadside assist­ ance. Service intervals are 15 000 km. Driving experience paid for by Hyundai. — Witness Wheels.

Changan Eado XT 1,5 turbo makes 125 kW and 230 Nm from 1 950 rpm. Six speakers, park as­ sist and six air bags are among the long list of luxuries. The Eado XT debuted on the Shang­ hai Auto Show in April 2013, and is based on the Changan Eado sedan that was launched in March 2012.

Telephone: 039 312 0222 / 239 This is the brand new Haima S5 SUV, it will debut on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show and launch on the China car market in May. Price will start around 95.000 yuan and end around 130.000 yuan. The Haima S5 is the second SUV for the Haima brand after the larger Haima S7. Power comes from a turbo­ charged 1.5 liter four­cylinder with 150hp and 210nm mated to a 5­speed manual or a CVT sending power to the front wheels. A natu­ rally aspirated 1.5 will become available in late 2014 and Haima is working on a 180hp 1.8 turbo for 2015.

ALWYN VILJOEN THE designsondisplayat the recent Beijing Auto Show were mostly a case of out with the new, in with the old. Designs of new SUVs especially suffered from a slavish adherence to the coupé roofline creat­ ed by the Land Rover and the fluid sculptures made popular by Hyundai. Put any of these utes in a dark room and even their designers would find it difficult to distin­ guish them from their profiles. The exception that provedtherulewas GWM new designer, Pierre Leclercq, formerly the head of design at BMW’s M division. He set a new direction for the compa­ ny with a concept coupé, which Leclercq said shows what the Haval Sport can look like in 2016. Featuring a particu­ larly striking upright LED lighting arrangement front and rear, the Haval Coupé Concept remains recognisable even in the dark. Other details to highlight include the symmetrical, square­ shaped exhaust outlets and striking two­tone 22­ inch alloy wheels.

agencies reported a massive upsurge in booking volumes,” said Justin Mackrory, CEO for South Coast Tourism. “During the event I spoke to a number of practitioners who reported that their hospitality turnover was excellent. Certainly, from what I witnessed, restaurants in the key event areas were filled to the brim.” “Bike week was a resounding success and has become the pinnacle ‘rainbow’ event for the Greater South Coast and Margate.”

He said the event’s contract phases out in 2015, but was confident that a new one will be signed. Louis Boshoff from the Information Centre at Shelly Centre confirmed that occupancy levels were up by 70% in the Shelly Beach area. Visitors also extended their stay prior to the event due to holidays giving the local economy a massive boost. Local Margate businesses reported a 30% increase in trade and the toll road was 27% busier than 2013, according to markerting manage-

HE South Coast Warriors suffered their first loss of the season when they went down 21-15 against Harlequins on Saturday. The match was played on the Bluff in Durban with the Warriors playing in their new away kit. Coach Christo Henderson said their shaky scrum in the first 30 minutes contributed to the loss even though they controlled all other aspects of the game. This weekend they play a home game against Richards Bay.

Eventful surf week despite hectic winds

THE horseracing world mourns the deathoflegendBertHayden,threetimes July winner and one of the greatest jock­ eys SA has ever seen. We will miss him. Legislate won the Guineas, Maybe Yes won the Fillies Guineas and Beach Beauty smashed the opposition in win­ ning the Drill Hall Stakes. Liverpool slipped from a 3­0 lead against Crystal Palace to draw 3­3 and Chelsea drew 0­0 with Norwich. These two results have given the Premiership top spot to Man City, who will now win the league. Arsenal are as­ sured a place in the European Champi­ ons League next year.

Sunderland are playing their socks off to avoid relegation, doing well to beat Man United. Norwich are also doing their best work now, but I think it’s too little too late. This weekend will decide who wins and who goes down. Wits knocked Chiefs out of the Ned­ bank Cup, and Pirates also went through to the next round. In Super 15 Rugby, Sharks won away against Rebels and stay top of the log. Blues thrashed Reds 44­14, Crusaders drilledBrumbies40­20,Chiefs annihilat­ ed Lions 38­8, Waratahs edged out Hurricanes 39­30, Stormers squeaked in 29­28 against Highlander and Bulls

won 26­21 against Cheetahs. Once again, I had six out of seven right, only getting Waratahs wrong. This Friday, Chiefs take on Blues, which should be a humdinger, with the home side winning by two points. Rebels will lose by five points at home to Hurricanes. On Saturday, High­ landers will easily beat Lions by 10 points, Brumbies will beat Sharks by four points, Cheetahs will win at home by five points against Force, Bulls will pip Stormers by three points and Crusad­ ers will easily account for Reds by 16 points, even though they are playing away. Happy punting.

IT has been a rather eventful past week on the South Coast with all the public holidays and thousands of bikers in town. I am however, very glad to get my hearing back and not to have to sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic while looking for surf at my favourite beaches. There hasn’t been great surf I’m afraid with only Thursday being the exception. North-easterly winds made it difficult to find decent waves, but I think the majority of people were just happy to be in the ocean and off for a few days. Congratulations to Alex Nutt who won the Kumba Iron Ore West Coast Classic. Nutt competes in the boys’ division and secured a well- deserved third place at the Cape Classic last week. Georgie Mckeone managed a fourth place at the West Coast Classic.

there has always been friendly rivalry between players. “Both teams have very youthful sides but we know that we are going to come out tops,” said Xolo. Madiba Stars coach, Mduduzi Nene agreed with Xolo that the match is going to be exciting. “We also have a very young squad that outdid themselves by going all the way through to the finals as this was our first year in the Marburg league,” said Nene. Hibiscus Coast Football Association president, Ayub Moosa, wished both clubs well and said, “May the best

team win!” Before the final kicks-off at 2:30pm, there will be three curtain-raiser matches that will play under the Eyethu Premier League. At 10am, Wild Coast Stars will play against Spurs. Shoprite will play against Special X1 at 11:30am and Bazokhala will face Murchison United at 1pm. The league’s current top goal scorers are: 1. Ngaleka Sboniso of Special X1 : 8 goals 2. Dorison Hadden of Marburg United : 7 goals 3. Sphiwe Nyawose of Madiba Stars : 4 goals.
