>> Locals say loss of Blue Flag status is costing the town and businesses GINISILE NDOVELA

Speaking to the Fever this week, businessman Fanie Bezuidenhout said the loss of Blue Flag status has cost the town and him dearly. “In order to restore Margate to its previous status as the preferred tourist destination on the South Coast, we need municipal authorities to take care of the beach and restore its BlueFlag status. Then, we will see an increased influx of tourists and business will expand,”saidBezuidenhout. He said that many businesses are closing down due to profit loss.



OLIDAYMAKERS, locals and businesses say they feel as if they are fighting a losing battle when complaining about the “filth” on Margate Beach. Business people in particular say the “dire state of the beach” is affecting small business owners, and that the situation has cost them precious tourist revenue and a decline in tourists to the area.

“As businesses, we pay high tax, but nothing is done to improve our services. Municipal services have gone down, costing us, because holidaymakers don’t come here any more.” Fanie’s wife, Johanna, said they are tourists (the couple has a home in Pretoria) and business people, so they can understand the frustration from both sectors. She says holiday bookings have fallen “drastically”. Turn to page 12

Police in high speed drug chase CANDYCE KRISHNA

>> A 26-YEAR-OLD man who thought he could evade arrest on Tuesday night was nabbed by the Port Shepstone K9 Unit and Tactical Response Team after a dramatic chase that started at Umtentweni and ended in Oslo Beach. The chase started at 10pm after police received a tip-off about a blue Toyota allegedly carrying drugs from the North Coast area. The officers tried to stop the vehicle when they saw it approaching at Umtentweni, but the driver sped off. He was chased until he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a wall in Oslo Beach, where he alighted from the car and attempted to flee on foot. “The suspect got out of the vehicle and allegedly threatened to attack one of the police members with a panga when he was told to freeze,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid. One of the policemen fired a shot, wounding the man in his foot, but he still resisted with his escape and ended up hiding in one of the bushes. By this time, police had surrounded the area and waited patiently until the man was surrendered. Police found eight plastic bags of dagga, weighing 4,2kg, and several pieces of crack cocaine in the vehicle. The panga was also handed in as evidence. He was charged with possession of drugs and will appear in court this week.

College protests spill over to another campus




Esayidi FET College Gamalakhe students refused to go to class until they got clarification on their bursaries.




SAYIDIFETCollegeGamalakheCampus students took to the streets on Friday demanding to know why one of their residences was converted into a training hotel. They were also demanding to know why the bursary amounts awarded to some students was never revealed. Campus SRC president, Thembalihle Shusha, said the students were on strike demanding to see documents reflecting the amount of their bursaries and how the funds were allocated. “We actually don’t know how much each student received. We were only told that we have been given a bursary and if we attend 80% of our courses and pass, we would get change back to cover other necessities. We never got that money back,” said Shusha. He added that poor students have no money for rent, to eat or pay for transport from where they rent accommodation. “These are students that are being told that they are on bursary, but they have no residence, they rent and pay and lack money to buy food,” he said. He complained that a residential block supposed to accommodate them has been

turned into a hotel and privatised or outsourced to business people. “We do not know to whom its income goes and why a public college building get privatised.” The police kept a close eye on the movements of the students as they protested. Esayidi FET College was contacted for comment this week but they had not responded yet at the time of going to press. Meanwhile, protests at the Enyenyezi campus of the same institution have been put on hold, according to SRC representative, Art Nkosi. He said in the meantime they will be meeting with college management again. “We met management during our protest last week and gave them our grievances. They asked us to go back to class saying they will give us a response on Friday,” said Nkosi. The protests at the campus have been ongoing for weeks, resulting in the closure of the institution after students burned tyres at the gates. Among the issues students complained about were the lack of full bursaries, a lack of libraries and “transparency about financial aid.” At the time of going to press, no comment from management was forthcoming. A strong police presence was seen at the college last week when students protested.

TWO men have appeared in Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court following their arrest in Shelly Beach on Friday. Anele Sinokhwe (22) was travelling with Zulani Isaac Canco (30) in a vehicle that was being monitored by a vehicle-tracking company. The vehicle was stolen from Newlands West that morning. The company’s helicopter, airborne at the time,alerted police that the vehicle was travelling on the R102 towards the lower South Coast. “Members spotted the vehicle in Shelly Beach. The driver stopped at a shopping mall,” said police spokesperson LieutenantColonel Wiid. The driver then proceeded to the Southcoast Mall parking area where police arrested him and a passenger. Sinokhwe was released on R10 000 bail while Canco is still in custody. The case was postponed to 18 June.


Warrant Officer Sean Pedlar from the Port Shepstone Local Criminal Record Centre dusts the stolen vehicle for prints.

They both face charges of possession of a stolen vehicle.

Stolen copper cable recovered by police.

>> Half her property is permanently wet and when there is a heavy overflow from the resevoir water, sand and debri flow into her yard

Cable theft arrest



WHILE attending to a complaint in Sunwich Port on Wednesday, three vigilant police officers noticed more suspicious activity in the nearby bushes. Sergeant Desmond Theunissen from the Port Shepstone K9 unit and Warrant Officer Harry Rheeder with Contable Chantel Goddan from the Southport police pounced on two men who were burning off insulation on what appeared to be Eskom copper cable. “Both men, aged 28 and 39 were arrested,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant­Colonel Zan­ dra Wiid. Bolt cutters and housebreaking tools were found in their possession. “There were also other stolen items found in their possession which were connected to a housebreaking case in Umzumbe area.” Further investigations revealed that the men are from Eshowe and Melmoth in northern Kwa­ Zulu­Natal. Wiid said the men remain in custody and face charges of theft and possession of stolen proper­ ty. — Supplied.

Tactical unit have busy week THE Port Shepstone Tactical Response Team (TRT) have been kept busy this past week. •The team arrested a person in Umzimkhulu for being in possession of an unlicensed Taurus revolv­ er and several rounds. A 31­year­old foreigner will appear in court in connection with this soon. •A bakkie, stolen in Durban in August 2012, was re­ covered abandoned in Umzinto. I •The Umzinto K9 Unit members spotted a vehicle being driven recklessly in the Park Rynie area and tried to stop it. The Port Shepstone TRT also as­ sisted to try and stop the vehicle. The driver then went onto a gravel road and fled into the bushes but was later arrested.



OR Palm Beach resident Bianka van Loggerenberg mudslides are a regular occurence at home. What frustrates her more is that the Ugu District Municipality is aware of the problem, but has not offered solutions. “I have been a permanent resident in the house since 2006, but these water problems only became an issue from November 2013,” said Van Loggerenberg. She said the problem stems from a continous leak from a resevoir which feeds the area. About half her property is permanently wet and when there is a heavy overflow from the resevoir water, sand and debri flow into her yard. This has happened five times in seven months. “My child cannot play outside. Garden services cannot cut the grass and I cannot access my own home the majority of the time.” She said she is also concerned about structural damage as she has noticed dampness inside the house. “I have to remove the mud from the track of my gate. My gate motor is also damaged because of this. “I had almost finished clearing the mess from the previous two mudslides in November and December, when the third one occurred in April. I cleaned up at my own expense, but I can no longer afford to do so.” Van Loggerenberg said she called Ugu twice before a team was deployed to clear up the mess. The next mudslides took place on 6 and 18 May. “I am at my wits end. E-mails have gone unanswered and I am battling to get attention from Ugu. Their lack of response and action is totally unacceptable.” The Ugu District Municipality was approached for comment, but none was forthcoming at the time of going to press.


This homeowner cannot access her property due to constant mudslides.

Help identify stolen items, SAPS TWO men were arrested in Louisiana on Friday after they were found in possession of various items such as shoes, clothing, tools and linen. Police suspect that the property was stolen during house break-ins as the suspects could not say where they got the items from. Anyone who can assist with the identification of the items must contact Warrant Officer Henry van Vuuren at Southport police station on 039 681 9900. Detective Constable Sbongiseni Xaba from Southport police made the arrests with assistance from the Port Shepstone Tactical Response team. — Supplied. PHOTOS: SUPPLIED

Traditional leaders urged to attend council meetings


>> A STERN warning was sent to amakhosi on Thursday for non-attendance at meetings. The Local House of Traditional Leaders’ chairperson, Inkosi Sifiso Shinga, said amakhosi will have to appear at a hearing if they do not attend municipal and traditional council meetings without offering an explanation. Shinga was addressing the traditional leadersatthe Hibiscus CoastCouncilChambersand said he had received many complaints of non-attendance.

“I have received complaints from municipalities that amakhosi are not attending council meetings. I explained the rules that if they are unable to attend a meeting, he or she must write a letter of apology to council.” He said the Ugu Local House of Traditional Leaders executive committee resolved that amakhosi who can’t attend municipal meetings must resign so other amakhosi can be appointed to take their place. “I repeat - if they are unhappy about sitting in council meetings, they must submit their resignation so that we can give this opportunity to other amakhosi,” said Shinga.

“Our committee will also visit each traditional council authority to assess its buildings and homes or tribal courts and find out if there is a need to assist them with revamping. “We will also visit our schools that performed well in the last Grade 12 examinations as well as those that did not do well as we want to implement necessary interventions.”

At the opening of Port Shepstone Beachfront’s Princess Elizabeth Drive on Tuesday, HCM mayor Cynthia Mqwebu raises her hand in celebration after the ribbon cutting. She is joined by EXCO councillors to declare the road officially open after its upgrade.




ort Shepstone beach’s Princess Elizabeth Drive was officially opened on Tuesday after undergoing extensive upgrades. The ceremony was attended by Hibiscus Coast Municipality (HCM) senior officials and Mayor Cynthia Mqwebu, who cut the symbolic ribbon to declare the road open. Mqwebu thanked all those involved in the project for fast-tracking construction. “I thank you. When you worked speedily for this project, you were not doing it for the elections but for service delivery. Municipal Manager Max Mbili paid special

thanks to Margate Construction for a job well done. “We also needed to cut the overgrown verges on the road side and clear the road. The contractor did that job at no extra cost. “That area is a sharp bend and it had overgrown verges which have now been removed. Now it looks nice and neat and is safe to drive through,” said Mbili. Director of Human Settlement and Infrastructure, Simphiwe Nikelo, said the road

cost R1.5 million rehabilitate. “It was a four-month project but we managed to complete it in three months, a storm water pipe has also been installed to control water. “Another area has been identified at the beach for further upgrade, which will allow visitors to sit and enjoy themselves. “In this area, we will construct benches and braai stands to enhance the experience of locals and visitors to our beachfront.”

THE Ugu Local House of Traditional Leaders has asked the South African Revenue Services (SARS) and the Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) to run educational programmes on how to file tax returns. Traditional leaders’ chairperson, Inkosi Sifiso Shinga, said at a meeting at the Hibiscus Coast Council Chambers on Thursday, that Amakhosi are concerned about claims they owe SARS “lots of money”. They say they have not been taught how to file their returns. SARS officer, Mdu Mthethwa, said they would be happy to assist Amakhosi fill-in their tax returns. Mthethwa said they have asked Cogta to assist as traditional leaders are obligated to submit tax returns every year. He said penalties will be charged should they not submit, or miss the deadline for submission. Amakhosi said they did not know how to resolve the “unfortunate financial and tax situation” they find themselves in. Shinga said Mthethwa had advised them that there is no amnesty or cancellation of the tax debt. He said the Amakhosi need to work with the department to see how the situation can be mitigated.

When men get raped Sibusiso Biyela I AM hoping that the title does not de­ ter you from reading this column. It is inspired, in part, by an article pub­ lished in DoubleX, a blog founded by Hanna Rosin. In this day and age, many of us still do not think the rape of men is seri­ ous, or believe that reported cases are true. Case in point is the first time I was told about the rape of a local man (and indeed every other time I heard it from other people) it was presented as a joke. This man had hitched a ride in a car occupied by four “normal looking”

In my opinion, the 21st century needs a lot fewer self-serving politicians like Omar al-Bashir (Sudanese president), Jacob Zuma and Julius Malema. On the other hand, we need a lot more people like Meriam Yehya Ibrahim – the woman who has been sentenced to death. We need people who have enough balls and backbone to believe in something and be

willing to lay down their lives for it rather than bow to the demands of the bastards who so often rule our world. Speaking of extremists, Abubakar Shekau and his group of bullies known as Boko Haram, consider it within their rights to take the physical freedom, religious freedom, happiness and likely virginity of over 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria. What the hell? Please,reader,canyouexplainto me how civilisation, decency, respect and human rights have es-

The rhino population is rapidly approachingzerobecausetheChinese and some of their neighbours believe that its horn has the power to make you better, make you irresistible to the opposite sex and enable you to get it up. Given that rhino horn is largely keratin, the same protein found in hair and fingernails, why doesn’t the whole nation just bite their nails, file them into a fine powder and leave our great herbivores alone. Ifyou’regoingtoignorescientific proof rendering rhino horn useful only to rhinos and believe something that stupid, can 21st century dwellers at least be intelligent and non-destructive in the way they obtain it. Perhaps it is simply a good upbringing that some people lack.

women who drove past his destination and drove him, at gunpoint, to an open field in an undisclosed location. The man says he was then placed on a tow­ elonwhichhewasrepeatedlyrapedfor over 10 hours. The way it was reported in the news was, while not being a direct mockery, as something astonishing, an anoma­ ly, and this I feel overshadowed the true gist of the story — a human being was raped. Why do people find it “unusual” when men get raped? I could even say that some find such stories unbeliev­ able and there’s a sense of subliminal bullshitting in many of the stories. For example, the victim of the Ging­ indlovu rape was and still is being sub­ jected to mockery and is accused of ly­ ing, because “it is impossible for a man to be raped”. I think it all boils down to assump­ tions regarding male sexuality such as “ifheiserectduringtheencounter,then he must have wanted to have sex” or “he must haveenjoyed it becausemen are like that with sex”. In arguing against abortion for rape

victims in the United States, Missouri Republican Todd Akin said in August 2012 that a woman cannot get preg­ nant from legitimate rape. This meant that a woman who fell pregnant as a result of rape was not “legitimately” raped. It is a stupid statement that showed an even uglier underlying truth in society. Our assumptions when it comes to sexual crimes are severely flawed and this has a knock­on effect of how we view victims and offenders and we sometimes switch their roles in our minds. But how can we define rape perpe­ trated on men? Can we qualify rape asawomanforcefullycausingpenetra­ tion? Is there a rape kit for men, and what proofdoesamanhavetopresent in court? Not many South African studies on the rape of men have been conducted and even less are publicised. A survey printed in2008intheBioMed Central’s International Journal for Equity in Health showed that “boys were most frequently assaulted by adult women, followed closely by schoolchildren”.

South Africa again stands out in the worldforourdefinitionofrapeasa sex­ ual crime.RapeasdefinedbytheCrimi­ nal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act, 2007 (Act No. 32 of 2007) is: “Any person (“A”) who unlawfully and intentionally com­ mits an act of sexual penetration with a complainant (“B”), without the con­ sent of B, is guilty of the offence of rape”, and this is not at all gender­ based,asopposedtomanyothercoun­ tries’ definitions. Now that our judicial system is gender­blind to sexual crimes, it is (when executed correctly) arguably the best in the world. But it is as good as the worst unless we change our mind­set on what consti­ tutes rape, regardless of whether it is a man or a woman who is raped. Latest reports indicate that the Gingindlovu man has quit his job and left the area. “Counselling helped me accept what happened, but I couldn’t deal with some of the remarks. Some people were saying I wasn’t man enough,othersaccusedmeoflying,”he was quoted as saying.

Thinly veiled racism is still racism I AM a state employee, a dedicated one. I have been serving our community for eight years, but I am beginning to rethink my job as a result of the racial abuse that one suffers daily from some sections of our community here on the South Coast. Most of the abuse, I have to admit, is not explicit; it is not in your face. Here I am, being a good citizen, yet at the same time I am being treated in a condescending manner by the same people I have chosen

to help. This daily experience has made me question the myth that we are always being coaxed and sometimes coerced into accepting and/or believing the so-called “rainbow nation”. Frankly, for as long as I feel that I am being spoken down to, I will not accept or believe in this rainbow nation myth.

Thanks for pre­loved clothes, blankets HIBISCUS Coast Seconds would like to thank a number of special people who opened their hearts to assist Hibiscus Helping Hands to gather blankets and warm clothes for the less fortunate during their recently held blanket drive. Thank you to Elma and Vince Roelofse from the “Evil Eagles” Biker Club (who initiated the event), Joe Schiller from Smokey Joes who hosted the event, Dirk from “No Rules” Biker Club and all community members – known and unknown – who gave so willingly.

Hibiscus Helping Hands works solely through donations in order to help over 40 families on the South Coast. The event was held at Smokey Joes Pub in Marine Drive, where the donation of a blanket was the entrance fee. Braai packs consisting of a piece of steak, wors and a chop were sold for R25 each. A big thank you also goes to the Smokey Joes staff: Morne Maritz – who was designated braai master for the evening, Duke De Bruyn for running everything behind the bar smoothly and to

Chantal Corder who, although not on duty that particular night, always supports any uplifting event of this nature. Regulars and very close friends, Natasha Van Der Merwe – Melting Moments manager and Bryan Williams – Caddys and Seaslopes Tavern manager, also supported the event. Overall donations included six black bags and a number of smaller plastic bags full of blankets, clothes and bed sheets. Thank you once again for all who attended and donated. Didi Williams

The pernicious pothole problem, again THERE are many potholes on Edward Drive in the direction of Sarum Road. One huge pothole has been filled, but there are many more at the entrance of Edward Avenue from Marine Drive. Sarum Road is going from bad to worse as more potholes appear. The intersection of Sarum and Kenmuir Road has many large potholes which have been there for over a year and no at-

tempts have been made to repair them. Kenmuir Road has many potholes adjacent to Kenmuir Manor and rounding the bend towards Kenmuir Gardens. At Kenmuir Manor, a trench was dug across the road and one kind soul filled it with a mixture of cement and sand. Henry Road from Edward Avenue moving in the direction of Uvongo Gardens has two huge potholes at Mitchell and Henry road in-

tersection. These are growing bigger by the day. This huge pothole is causing much damage to cars as it cannot be avoided. Why are the authorities doing nothing to repair these potholes? Many upcountry residents visit our coast regularly and bring money into our economy on the South coast. The authorities need to repair these potholes. They cannot be left to deteriorate further. K.

My husband is disabled. He recently received a parking ticket because two cars were parked in the disability zone in front of Shoprite in Port Shepstone. One of them was this NPS 116 gray Fiat. None of the people getting in or out these vehicles seemed to be disabled at all. The authorities need to come down strictly on these offenders. ­ Simone Madden

Jolly walker FEVER thanks kids May 23, 2014

south coast


Darrell Day, a reg­ ular walker in Port Shepstone, shows letters of appreciation he has received from unknown children on the road.

From preacher to teacher >> Youth pastor gets degree to prove he is walking the talk


Vusani Dlamini (47) obtained his BEd from the University of Zululand recently





>> PORT Shepstone resident Darrell Day can be seen almost every morning walking between Port Shepstone and Umtentweni. Day says his walks are inspired by his love for God and people. Day popped in at the Fever offices on Monday, saying he wanted to say “thank you” to local children who dropped him “lovely written messages” that morning. “I walk almost every morning between 6:30am and 8:30am and wish people on the road a happy day.

“On that day, some children in a car put lovely letters in a plastic bag and dropped them by me as I walked along the road. They were so kind and generous,” he said. In his thank you letter to the children, Day wrote. “Thank you. Someone out there must know. The young persons who wrote these letters to me and dropped them on the road that I walk daily. Greetings all. Please thank those young persons for me”. Day says he enjoys what he does as it is God’s work: meeting people on the road every morning, cheering them up and just saying hello.

OU’RE never too old to learn something new and that applies to studying too. So says Port Shepstone Methodist youth pastor, Vusani Dlamini, who took aleap of faith and obtained his bachelor of education degree at the age of 47. Dlamini, who teaches grade one at Inyandezulu Primary, said he wanted to contribute to his community even further, hence the studies. “I wanted to qualify as a teacher so that I could do my job better. I have to know what the journey of being a teacher is all about.” Dlamini taught for five years at the school before he decided to resign at the age of 42 and study full time. “It was not easy, but I did it. For five years, I devoted everything to my studies. Everyone I knew assisted me and believed in me.” He said in order teach his pupils

that education is power, he had to go through the motions too. “I want to encourage my pupils to put their books first. It starts from the foundation phase. Drinking, partying, doing drugs is not going to get you anywhere,” he said. Dlamini added that although he shared lectures with students who were still in their teens, he did not

They respected me.” He was elected as class representative from 2012 to 2013. “I had to come down to the same level as my students, yet still act maturely. “Knowledge is something nobody can take away from you. It’s never too late to achieve a dream.”

Hospice staff each lit a candle which signifies different aspects of the event, (from left) Dirk van Reenen lit a candle for people living with HIV/Aids, Nokuthula Shabane lit a candle for child headed households, Sheila Smook for the medical profession and Phillip Mzize for those who have died as a result of the disease.


>> EVERY year on the third Sunday of May, candles are lit to create awareness about HIV/Aids and to remember those infected or affected by the disease. The South Coast Hospice observed International AIDS Candlelight Memorial Day on Monday at their premises in Port Shepstone. Thethemewas‘Let’s keep the light on HIV’. The campaign, which started in 1983, is co-ordinated by the Global Network of People and serves as an important intervention for global solidarity, breaking down barriers of stigma and discrimination, and giving hope to new generations. Hospice staff lit four candles which each had it’s own special significance. One was lit for people who have died as a

result of HIV/Aids. The second candle was to honour the bravery of those living with the disease. The third was for the medical staff who work tirelessly for patients and their families and the scientists who won’t stop looking for a cure. The fourth candle was for the children who lost the opportunity to be children and now have to run household because HIV/Aids has taken away their caregivers. Staff then assisted each other with the lighting of their own candles, which were placed on a table. To end the ceremony, CEO Di van Dyk explained the importance of the Tree of Remembrance. Staff placed petals on the tree, bearing in mind the people and families who have been infected and affected by HIV/Aids.

Shelly Lions voice their gratitude THE Shelly Beach Lions held a 100 Club lucky draw last weekend at St Michaels Beach Lifesaver’s clubhouse in conjunction with the Margate Saints Surf Lifesaving Club’s sponsors’ evening. The event was used to thank businesses that assisted the Lions and the lifesaving club with the The first meeting of the Round Table Southern Africa National Council for 2014/2015.

Garbade elected as South African Table president


HE Natal South Coast Area of Round Table says it has grown from strength to strength, and a recentnational coup is proof of this. At the organisation’s AGM and President’s Banquet held in East London, Port Shepstone 83’s Leon “Jedi” Garbade was elected as President of Round Table Southern Africa. Garbade was the Natal South Coast Area Chairman in 2012/2013 and has continued as an incredibly dedicated member of RTSA. He has set in motion plans that will prove to make RTSA an “even more relevant association” in today’s times, with emphasis on fun and family. PHOTOS: SUPPLIED

R200 000 renovations and upgrades to the lifesaving facilities last year. The winner of the R5000 prize for the 100 Club draw was Mr Hardwick from Johannesburg, who bought his ticket at the Africa Bike Week breakfast. Sponsors commented on the great work done in upgrading the lifesaver facilities, saying there are plans in the pipeline to expand renovations.


The last three years have seen South Coast Tablers holding national portfolios. Andre Krugel of Amanzimtoti 85 handed the presidential chain of office to Garbade after completing a successful year and distributing more than R20m to various deserving organisations. The current RTSA national executive is complemented by Margate 46, Sheppie 83 and Amanzimtoti Round Tablers. These national portfolios require local Tablers to represent the association in just about every province in South Africa, as well as multiple international visits. Visits abroad include Namibia, Germany, Estonia, Seychelles, Mauritius, Zambia and England. The spirit of developing international relations is always with the hope that Round Tablers from abroad will reciprocate. Best of luck to Garbade and South Coast Tablers.

Indaba 2014 and our destination LAST week, Ugu South Coast Tourism formed part of our provincial pavilion at Indaba 2014, which is Africa’s largest tourism trade show, held annually in Durban. The event is a means for our tour­ ism sector to engage principally with what can be termed “influencers” such as tour operators and the media. Emanating from a host of meetings and calling in on numerous stands, it is apparent that our 2013­2017 tourism strategy is on the right track in terms of

I feel so trapped! I AM married to a man who does not tell me if he does not like what I do or say. Then later another thing comes up and he uses both things at the same time and a huge argument develops. He just will not discuss it and if I apologize he will not believe me. If I do something he does not like I can see by his expression that he is not happy. He is a physical, aggressive type of man. He has his own building busi­ ness and often goes out drinking and gets back late the next morning, but if I go out with some of my women friends for an hour he wants me back. I feel trapped in my marriage, and under his control the whole time. He wants chil­ dren but I am scared that he will treat them the same as he treats me ­ no

TOURISM 360 destination marketing and broadening our base of relationships with the tour­ ism sector. This does not suggest that all is rosy and we are riding the crest of a new wave. Feedback from General Selling Agents (GSA’s) from the United King­ dom and Germany indicates that we should not allow ourselves to be smoth­ ered within the South African interna­ tional sell destinations such as the Kruger Park, Cape Town and the Garden Route. We have been aware of this fact and have specifically determined to align with national and provincial campaigns in addition to establishing one to one

niche relationships with the influencers I have already mentioned. This approach we believe will offset that challenge of being lost within the huge basket of tourism products and experiences presented internationally. Another wish from our overseas pro­ moters is for overseas buyers to actually meet product and hospitality property representatives so that they can con­ duct business based on priced packages and trade incentives. Going forward, Ugu South Coast Tourism will not only form part of a cluttered provincial stand but also book additional space for our members to present their offerings to the buyers. Valid critique was that there is an

Mrs. M.S Dear Mrs. M.S, The description of your marriage is not a happy one and I question why you married such a man who obviously does not believe in a shared life and shared feelings. He seems to want control over you and to be allowed to do his own thing whenever he wishes. Pastoral counsel­ ling does not seem to work and cannot if you are not included. Either you can seek the help of a qualified psychologist or I suggest you kick this guy out before things get completely unbearable. Do not hesitate.

element of apathy for the foreign mar­ kets by some key hospitality establish­ ments who do not provide real incen­ tives to selling intermediaries for our overseas visitors. This may be due to comfort from a supportive domestic market but my take on this is that our bread and but­ ter comes from southern Africa but our wealth marking cherry on top is the overseas visitor prospect. On a positive note, Indaba ’14 appears to have induced a higher presence of tourism media than in recent years and we spent a great deal of time meeting with the media to seek common com­ munication and advertising avenues lo­ cally and abroad.

JUSTIN MACKRORY: CEO ­ SOUTH COAST TOURISM Furthermore, the event provided us with an opportunity to expand on our contact bases with tourism wholesalers, operators and package brokers. Those we met were encouraged that we have a tourism trade newsletter available which we intend to expand to include an overseas orientated edition so that our domestic and foreign trade associates get the destination picture in relation to their differing client profiles, interests and expectations.

I have very bad luck with men I WORK for the municipality and I am under tremendous stress both at work and at home. I have consulted a psychologist who found both work and home problems. I even thought of suicide I was so de­ pressed. My man and I have been to­ gether six years and he even said our first child was not his. He later agreed, but would not pay damages. Then I met another man who took care of us, and after a time we had a child, but he became harsh, no confidential talk and he drank a lot. I wanted marriage but he said no, he wanted another child. I had another baby but still there was no talk of marriage. Then he bought himself a car and I had to walk to town, and he

had an affair at work. I confronted him and he called me a control freak and said she was only a friend. Then I met another man and now the first one wants to pay lobola and to marry me! Ms K

and understanding on both sides. I think the children are the ones who are paying the price of some very bad decisions on your side. I do suggest that you talk with the elders. They can probably give some very good advice, and they may even know these men you have been living with. I think that you should also spend some time on your own.Consult a good clinical psychologist, because you have a lot of emotional strain from children together with different men/fathers to cope with.

Dear Ms K, You do not seem to have much luck with men. The first one you were with for six years and that seems to have worked out much better that the next one! You do not say anything about the third, what is he like? To go back to the first one, although he seems to have been the best of a bad bunch, it will take a lot of love

>> Fundraiser at local community church



At the Hospice fundraising tea are (from left) Zahn Mocke, Di van Dyk and Rosemary Erasmus.


FUNDRAISING tea and lunch, hosted by South Coast Hospice, was held at the Norwegian Settlers Church recently. There were 59 women in attendance - mothers, daughters, grandmothers and those special people in one’s life, “mother figures”. Hospice CEO Di Van Dyk spoke on multi drug-resistant tuberculosis and tuberculosis, which has been named as an escalating

health concern in the Ugu District. Guests had the opportunity of having a “memorable photo shoot” with a friend at the event. Handmade lucky draw prizes, made out of donated material from the community, were up for grabs and a fundraising raffle was held. One of the guests said it was wonderful to hear about the holistic palliative care that Hospice provides. Hospice thanked everyone for making the event a success.

PORT Shepstone Regional Hospital OPD staff held a World Hypertension Day awareness campaign for the White City community in Albersville on Friday. The staff provided an array of screening services including blood­sugar testing, hypertension, pulse, anemia and electro­cardiogram (ECG). Sister Mbangi (OPD operational man­ ager), Sister Ramdutt and Sister Ma­ casha gave health education talks on hypertension, angina, stroke, cardiac dis­ ease and the importance of an ECG. Hospital lay counsellor Shangase also provided information on human immu­

nodeficiency syndrome (HIV) and em­ phasised the importance of HIV testing. The staff encouraged the community to have testing done on the day. Residents were also encouraged to live healthy lifestyles and to follow a healthy diet. Hospital public relations officer Phumza Morai said the turnout was good as the hospital screened more than 40 people. “Out of the patients seen during this campaign, staff picked up on one severe cardiac case. The man’s cardiogram re­ port showed that he could have a heart

attack at any time, and we thank God he was screened in time,” said Morai. An ambulance was quickly sent for the patient to take him to hospital. “The hospital management extend a word of gratitude and appreciation to Pastor Moses (hall manager) and his wife for allowing these activities to take place in the White City hall and for the hospitality shown to staff and commu­ nity members who came to this func­ tion. “A big thanks is also extended to staff for their dedication and participa­ tion during this campaign,” said Morai.

Be battery ‘positive’

>> ‘It’s important to first read the car’s manual for any specific boost­ starting instructions’ before doing any jumping


EING stranded by a flat battery can ruin a holiday road-trip. Even worse, incorrectly jumpstarting your car can result in disaster. MotorIndustryWorkshopAssociation chairman Les McMaster advises on the correct way to way to “jump” your car, bakkie or motorbike. Linking up McMaster said: “While the jumpstarting procedure is relatively standard for all vehicles on the road today boost-starting can cause serious damage to the vehicle’s electrical system and computer if done carelessly or incorrectly. “It’s important first to first the car’s manual for any specific boost-starting instructionsandtoensurethatthevarious locations are identified for the jump-start terminals in your car. In many modern cars these terminals are placed at strategic places in the vehicleduetothebatterybeinginahardto-reach place.” Once the terminals are located and jumper cables made available he advises lining up another car as close as close as possible. Make sure the handbrake in each is on, that the gear selector is in neutral-park and that both cars are turned off and not touching before you connect the batteriespoles. “It’s important to remember that

To prevent that, make sure all headlights, indicators, car radios and air-conditioners are off and radar detectorsandcellphonesareunplugged. “Also unplug all accessories from cigarette lighters and other power socketsfrombothcarsandremovethe keys from the flat car’s ignition until the jumper cables are hooked up.” Battery with a crack will explode Take some time to familiarise yourself with the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals of each car’s battery.


All batteries are clearly marked, so if you can’t find it, it’s probably under corrosion around the terminals. Usually the positive battery cable is red or orange and the negative (ground cable) is black. “If you try to jump start the battery with a crack it will explode. “It also doesn’t make any sense to jump a cracked battery, as it will die in a few minutes anyway.

My father’s Comrades drama EILIDH GOOSEN MY dad has run the Comrades a ridiculous number of times, having completed 15 Marathons. This year should have been his 16th, and I'm hoping it will still be, if the powers-that-be in charge of the race can help him out. My dad registered dutifully almost as soon registrations opened last

year, he paid his fees, ran all of his qualifying races in great time and has been going above and beyond with his training. Only, a few weeks ago, he realised he hadn't been contacted for his qualifying times and started to worry. He called, and was informed that he wasn't registered as they hadn't received his payment. My dad back-

south coast

tracked to see why not and he discovered that the fraudulent transaction in Denmark that he reported to his bank was in fact his registration fee. The transaction didn't have any reference to Comrades, his bank didn't know what it was for and the registrations staff didn't inform him that he hadn't paid. And now, according to them, it's far too late to

enter him or substitute him into the race as all the deadlines have passed. He has several fellow runners who have entered and paid but aren't running, offering him their spots and payments yet the powersthat-be won't assist him. They won't make an exception for a fellow Comrade in need. If any other runner happens to read this, you will understand his situation.




You will know how disappointing it is to train and be in the best shape of your life and not be able to participate. He is fighting for his race, he's sent all this information to them, and if there is anyone with a heart who has the influence to make an exception, I hope they will.

This was a very comfortable game for the first team, who dominated from start to finish with an average 10 point lead at any given time, even though they were playing against the wind in the first half. “The wind was strong but we played our best rugby against the wind where we scored three tries,”

after the game. Henderson also said it was good that the second team is strong and achieved outstanding results. “It means good competition between players and it keeps the first team on their best,” he said. He added that for any team to have a great pool of talent always bodes well. Try scorers were Andrie Fourie, Sakhi Tuni, Juandre Koekemoer, Dylan Kroon, Josh Fourie and Josh Fourie. The second team’s men of the match were Forwards Karel Van Rooyen and Stephan Slabbert, and Backs, Bredan McGarr. Try scorers were Stephan Slabbert (4), Bongi Mhle ( 2), Brebdan McGarr (2), Tye Thompson (2) and Ettiene Marias (1). The Warrior’s next match is an away game against UKZN.
