A group of angry sugarindustry staff took to the front of Illovo Sugarmill again on Wednesday morning to demand a higher wage increase, and other benefits. The national strike began on Tuesday.

IVE us a double-digit increase or we will continue with the strike.” These are the words of disgruntled Illovo Sugar staff in Port Shepstone, who are part of the national strike for a salary hike — the first since 1997. Orchestrated by the Food and Allied Workers Union (Fawu), which has about 230 members at the mill, angry employees took to the front of the building on Tuesday and Wednesday morning where they burnt tyres, sang songs and toyi-toyied. About 80 United Association of South Africa members were also part of the strike. Port Shepstone SAPS Crime

perse the crowd. Zwe Chiliza, Fawu chairman, was apprehended by a POP member and detained in a police vehicle. He was released a short while later. By that time, POP members had moved the crowd from the front of the building to a demarcated area specifically cordoned off for protesters. When police released Chiliza, union members “rejoiced” as he was carried on a member’s shoulders. “Negotiations for a 16.8% increase commenced at the beginning of March, however we were only offered a 7% increase. That is too little,” said Chiliza. Union members then declared a dispute and called for intervention from the CCMA.
After talks, mill management offered an eight per cent increase. “We want a double digit increase. We want 11.5%,” said Chiliza. They are also seeking a R400 top-up for both A-band and Bband workers. A-band and Bband is the lowest of the bands in the sugar industry. The lowestpaid worker at the mill is said to earn R5 500 a month. Strikers also sought a 40-hour work week without loss of pay, an R800 housing subsidy, and permanent employment for all fixed-term and contract workers. Chiliza said there were members who still reported for duty, but hoped they would join the strike as they also stand to reap the benefits of what protesters are fighting for.

Louisiana residents demand services GINISILE NDOVELA
>>email@example.com HUNDREDS of Louisiana informal settlement resi dents closed the access road to KwaMadlala and toyitoyied on Monday morning. Spokesperson Andile Siteshini said they were demanding electricity, better roads, a sports field and the dismissal of their ward councillors. The protesters burnt tyres on the road, which disturbed the flow of traffic before police arrived and controlled the situation. Hibiscus Coast Municipality (HCM) managers and councillors arrived to listen to their grievances. The protest leaders, municipal officials, council lors and police held an intense meeting on the road side, and the community was persuaded to clear the road.

Now cables are installed and the new con tractor will be on site tomorrow to work and com plete the installation of electricity for the 504 houses. The other 60 houses will be electrified after the 504 houses are done,” said Nikelo. At a council meeting on Tuesday, HCM Speaker Ronny Nair said the community can only remove councillors through elections. Nair was responding to opposition party question about the community’s call to remove their councillors. At a media briefing on Tuesday, mayor Cynthia Mqwebu said the municipality, while acknowledging the issues raised by the community, remains in sup port of the councillors and is more than happy to engage the elected representatives on how the situation can be improved.

3 e-Tags for Oribi Toll Plaza May 30, 2014
>> Current method of paying at Oribi will be maintained THE Oribi Toll Plaza near Port Shepstone is one of two toll gates in the province where e-tolling will be introduced by November, roads agency Sanral revealed last Wednesday. The other area is the Marrianhill Toll Plaza on the N3. Unlike in Gauteng, this will not be an additional toll, but simply an alternative means of collecting normal toll fees, Sanral KwaZuluNatal and the Free State regional manager Logashri
Sewnarain said. “It must be remembered that it’s not an additional toll,” she said. The current method of paying tolls at Oribi and Mariannhill would be maintained but additional lanes would be added and vehicles would be able to go through the new e-toll lanes at a speed of about 40km/h. She said the booms in the e-toll lanes would not automatically open for vehicles without e-tags.
Vehicles without e-tags would still have to go throughthetraditionalbooths and drivers will still have to present a card to the cashiers. More than 100 000 vehicles use the N3 daily and implementing an e-tolling system would improve traffic flow. “The manual toll booths can process between 200 and 300 vehicles an hour whereas up to 700 vehicles an hour can pass through using etags,” she said.
Farmers raise their concerns over Jazz festival GINISILE NDOVELA
>>firstname.lastname@example.org FARMERS living in the vicinity of Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre have said that while they support Ugu Jazz Festival, they are not happy with the theft of their sugar cane by the revellers. This was announced at the Ugu District Municipality (UDM) and Cyassound Holding stakeholders meeting on Tuesday. Farmer Ryan Mostert said he supports the event because it brings tourists and promotes the local economy. Cyassound Holding director Siya Msomi said they have applied for the event to end at 4am and appealed to everyone to attend the festi-

However, farmers have raised security concerns around the festival. According to the farmers, the Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre has places where its fence is broken, which allows people with no tickets to enter and leave as they please. Furthermore, they complained about the noise levels which they said affect everyone, including their animals. Ward councillor Phumlani Gumbi said the animals
should be able to tolerate the noise for such a short time. “We had Afrika Bike Week, and there were no complaints about noise. “But because this is an event that is of huge interest among the black people, we hear complaints about noise,” said Gumbi. Gumbi also encouraged the police to arrest the sugarcane thieves. The festival takes place on Saturday, 28 June, with preparties and after-parties also planned.

FOUR people escaped unharmed after their small boat was almost swept out to sea in Port Shepstone on Sunday morning. KZN EMS media liaison officer, Robert Mckenzie, said emergency services from the Port were dispatched to The Block - where the Umzimkhulu River flows into the sea - after receiving reports of a boat in distress. “When emergency services arrived on scene they discovered to their relief that there was no one injured,” said Mckenzie. According to the men, they took the craft out on the river for a ride when problems developed with the motor. “The tide was out going and they were rapidly swept down the river. They had an oar with then which they used to try paddle to the side. “The fast flowing water drifted them rapidly to the mouth of the river. “There is currently a sand bank in the middle of the river mouth where the river flows into the sea and they managed to steer themselves onto the island. “They were then able to throw a rope to people standing on the beach, who were able to pull them to safety,” said Mckenzie. “All four were unharmed and did not require any medical care,” said Mckenzie.

he Hibiscus Coast Municipal councillors have passed the municipal 2014/ 2015 budget for service delivery. Briefing the media on Tuesday, mayor Cynthia Mqwebu said she tabled the Council’s final budget for adoption and it was agreed upon by all political parties. “The budget of R806 052 240 comprises a capital budget of R101 031 497 and an operating budget of R705 020 743,” said Mqwebu. She said the budget has been informed by a consideration of the prevailing difficult economic circumstances, road and electricity infrastructure needs, and the need to prioritise projects with available resources. Consideration has also been given to collective bargaining agreements with unions, which govern the remuneration of municipal employees. Mqwebu indicated that a thorough process of consultation was followed after the draft budget was tabled at the Council meeting in March.
“This included izimbizos in all council clusters, as well as individual meetings with organisations,” said Mqwebu. Mqwebu said that she was satisfied that the budget focused on all priority areas of the municipality, in particular the allocation for preventative maintenance and repair of the road network system, which amounts to approximately R22 million. “Highlights of the budget include a combined budget of over R15 million for the construction of new pedestrian and vehicular bridges to facilitate safe and easy access, particularly in rural areas. “Community infrastructure such as halls and sports fields to the value of just under R30 million have been approved. “Youth empowerment initiatives to the amount of R1.1 million have been approved. “Support for Ugu Jazz festival for R450 000 and for Africa Bike Week for the same amount have been approved,” said Mqwebu. She said support to vulnerable groups including annual grants-in-aid amounted to just over R1.5 million for 2014/2015.

BONGUMUSA Mbo Hadebe (31) and Bonginkosi Kwazi Mhlongo (21) appeared in the Pietermaritzburg High Court on 20 May where they were each sentenced to a total of 145 years’ imprisonment on five counts of house robbery, three of rape, two at-
Two Margate rapists sentenced to over 100 years each tempted murder and two counts of kidnapping. During the period of July and November 2012, a number of house robberies and rape cases were reported at Ezinqoleni and Port Edward police stations. In all the reported cases there were two culprits, armed with firearms and wearing balaclavas, who were terrorising people.
They entered the victim’s houses, threatened them with firearms, took their belongings and raped them. A cluster task team to investigate the cases was established by the Margate cluster commander. On 10 January 2013, the Margate Cluster Task Team made a breakthrough when they arrested two suspects and were all linked
to the cases at Ezinqoleni and Port Edward. The stolen property was also found in the accused’s possession and identified by the rightful owners. Hadebe was sentenced to 115 years and Mhlongo to 145 years on all 12 counts. Sentences will run concurrently. The KZN Provincial
Commissioner, Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni, commended the Margate Cluster Task Team for working around the clock to put the perpetrators behind bars. “We will not tolerate criminal activity in our province. “These sentences will serve as a warning to others that crime does not pay,” she said.

brown and white fox terrier named Pompie. Against military rules, the dog accompanied him on his plane and saw action in North Africa, in present-day Ethiopia (Abyssinia) and Somali Land. “I told my brother that I remembered the book well and it was at home when Ileft in December 1962,” said Dirk. Calls to his other siblings asking about the book proved futile, so Dirk got onto the Internet to see if anyone could sell him a copy. “I approached Bid or Buy and to my amazement I was able to procure the book from Sandra Preller of Jeffrey’s Bay for R35.” In the process, Dirk learned that Sandra’s grandfather-in-law was Preller's cousin.
FRANTIC search by a local man for a World War 2-era book had a happy ending when he sourced it with the help of modern technology. In April, Dirk Schoeman of Umtentweni said he received a call from his brother Jorrie asking if he had in his possession one of Jorrie’s favouritebooks- MyHond,dieOorlog en Ek (My Dog the War and I). Jorrie had left the book behind when he moved out of their family home in the Free State town of Theunissen in the 50s. Throughout the years, he believed one of his siblings had the book. Published in 1945, it tells the story of Major Robert (Bob) Henning Preller who was a fighter pilot during World War 2 and his dog, a black,
Dirk Schoeman (left) presents the book ‘My Hond, die Oorlog en Ek’ to brother Jorrie.
Jorrie, who had come specially from Parys to get the book from his brother, said he was delighted to finally have the book once again. The book also gives an account of the nine hour, 40-minute flight from the Waterkloof military airport via Broken Hill to Dodoma in Tanzania which required Pompies be given milk and a few teaspoons of brandy. On 11 June, 1941 Bob (now promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel) and a colleague were on their way back to South Africa in a captured Italian Savoia S79 aeroplane. The plane was restored and was regarded as a test flight. Due to poor visibility over Kilimanjaro and excessive use of fuel, they were forced to crash land at Gwanda, 60 miles from Bulawayo in the then Rhodesia. To prevent his dog undergoing the mandatory six-month quarantine, Bob hid Pompie among parachute bags and suitcases in the vehicle and safely smuggled him across the border. Preller died in 23 April, 1979.

Mudslide problem solved
>> Municipality has commenced with rectification work which included the removal of the sand in the resident’s yard CANDYCE KRISHNA
perienced several mudslides at her home since last November due to a continous leak from a resevoir which feeds the area. Since the Fever intervened and published a story (“Mudslide madness”, 23 May), Ugu staff have inspected her property and have offered possible solutions to the problem.
Spokesperson Sipho Khuzwayo said Ugu was committed to resolving the water-damage problem and has committed itself to carrying out immediate rectification measures on the house. “Investigations by the Ugu water services technical team revealed the cause of the overflow was due to the failure of the control valve at the
reservoir. “A fitter and turner has since been dispatched to replace the faulty valve to avoid the recurrence of the overflow,” said Khuzwayo. “The municipality has commenced with other rectification work which included the removal of the sand in the resident’s yard, reinstatement of the paving at the back of the
house, the rodding of black and grey water drainage pipes and jetting blockages to the conservancy tank.” He said Ugu sincerely apologised to Van Loggerenberg and will ensure the clean-up process is fast-tracked to eliminate further inconveniences. VanLoggerenbergthankedtheFever for bringing her story to the municipality’s attention.
Ugu water supply promise
THE Ugu District Municipality said it has budgeted R54 million for waterpipeline replacementsinthegreaterUgudistrictfor the 2014/2015 financial year, which starts on 1 July. Recently, communities in Gamalakhe, Marburg, Oslo Beach, Merlwood, KwaMad lala, Mthimude and Amahlongwa experi enced water disruptions due to what Uguu said are network restrictions in the supply
systems, technical faults, ageing infra structure and infrastructure damage, among other issues. The municipality promised to provide a sustainable solution to ensure uninter rupted access to water. A memorandum of agreement has been finalised with the KZN Department Corporative Governance and Traditional Affairs where service providers have been
appointed to provide support. In another project the municipality will roll out the Security of Supply Project which includes the Gamalakhe Bulk Water Supply Project with a budget of R8 million for the 2014/2015 financial year.

Taking part in the cleanup are members of Property Port’s A team' (from left) Gary, Kym and Kenny Rolfe, Stafford Tippett, Margie Sammons, Noelien Lizamore and (front) Vicky Williams.
Three suspects arrested for attempted murder TWO of the five people suspected to be involved in the alleged attempted murder of a 23-year-old man have been arrested. Warrant Officer Johan Zandberg was on duty when the victim, who had been discharged from hospital, went to see him. After interviewing the man, Zandberg established that the case had been opened on 13 May after the 23-year-old was stabbed 37 times by his assailants in Mbotsha
location at Bhoboyi. He was left to die by his attackers who fled with his cellphone. The driver of a police van which was patrolling the area the same night, noticed a pool of blood on the road and the officer went to investigate. “He discovered the seriously injured victim in the bushes. “The victim was taken to a Durban hospital for attention. He was then discharged last weekend,” said
police spokesperson LieutenantColonel Zandra Wiid. Zandberg and Constable Bonny Ngcobo went to Bhoboyi on Saturday where they arrested the two suspects. A 35-year-old woman and a 27year-old man will appear in Port Shepstone soon for conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder and armed robbery. Police are still searching for the other suspects.

Scrapmetal dealer raided, stolen goods confiscated ABOUT 80 kilograms of scrap metal was confiscated from T&C Scrap Metal in Margate industrial area during a recent police raid. Police found copper pipes, airconditioner filters, aluminium pipes and car rims. A suspect found at the premises was arrested. “All scrap dealers and secondhand dealers are urged to comply
with the Second Hand Goods Act,” said police spokesperson Captain Gerald Mfeka. When buying second-hand goods, the shop employee or owner must get a copy of the seller’s ID and if possible proof of residence. The SAPS appeals to scrap-metal dealers to buy metal from registered plumbers and electricians only.

ARGATE and OR Tambo International Air port flight operator CemAir reassured the Hibiscus Coast Municipality (HCM) that it is here to stay and will expand its business. CemAir CEO Miles van de Molen presented a progress report to HCM Exco last week which fo cused on what has been achieved since a proposal to operate was presented in October 2013. Van de Molen said that since being awarded the flight contract they have received enormous support. “We said we would maintain ticket prices at at tractive rates, which we did, despite increased fuel costs. We proposed two return flights per week. We did that with no cancelled flights. We have [achieved] 97% of what we proposed. We had a single weather diversion,” said Van de Molen. He said customer feedback was “overwhelm ingly good”. “We went into partnership with San Lameer Hotel, Ugu South Coast Tourism and Umthuzi Ho tel. We ran major marketing and promotional competitions. “We are committed to stay and introduce bigger aircrafts. We will explore the Cape Town route as well,” he said. “Our airport has got an accessibility problem from the N2. We have a signage problem — signage is poor. Our airport restaurant is closed and passen gers need to buy items when they wait for flights. “For our growth, we need to have an upgrade of the airport infrastructure to allow the use of bigger aircraft,” said Van de Molen. Municipal Manager Max Mbili thanked CemAir for its investment on the South Coast. “Now that we have an airport operator we will raise funds to upgrade it. That was difficult to do when the airport was dormant. We have also ap pointed an airport manager to look at upgrade is sues. The restaurant will be opened soon as the tender has been advertised. The matter is at the awarding or adjudication committee,” said Mbili.

Lions Expo THRILLS coast
>> The Lions Outdoor and Leisure Expo 2014 took place over the weekend at the Port Shepstone Country Club GINISILE NDOVELA
he President ofLionsClubInternational Port Shepstone chapter, Andre Beneke, thanked businesses, sponsors and the public for the tremendous success of the Lions Outdoor and Leisure Expo 2014, held at Port Shepstone Country Club over the weekend. The show was well attended and as with all things Lion, all proceeds will go to local charities. Beneke said the Lions have been in existence for 44 years in Port Shepstone and have been involved in many community projects. “We have donated blankets to crèches through working with churches, we support the needy and we also get involved in disaster relief projects.” Beneke awarded certificates to businesses and organisations that had quality exhibition stands. The Expo attracted major companies and NPOs who came to display their products and services. Hibiscus Coast Municipality Council Speaker Ronnie Nair congratulated the Lions on the Expo and for inviting local government to work with them. “This shows your commitment in working with government as we ask the private and public sector to collaborate on issues that improve the lives of our communities,” said Nair. Great entertainment had been organised for the Expo, including beauty pageants, children’s entertainment, music and dancing.

Stupid people. They walk among us STEPH MCLENNAN email@example.com
VER the last week, the news has been full of stories of idiocy, both locally and further afield. Last week, the Durban North Fever’s website ran the story of a domestic work er who allegedly poisoned the uMhlanga
family who had recently employed her. More recent updates to the story reveal that she did this in an effort to ensure that the family would love her as one of their own, and never fire her. This “muthi”, which Thembi seemed to believe would endear her to the family, may well see her become someone’s maid in a prison cell. Speaking of muthi, a couple of intellec tually challenged crooks recently did busi ness with a sangoma who told them that a particular potion would render them in visible. Upon proceeding to break into a busi

The Illovo Sugar employees went on strike this week. We hopeitwillbepeacefulandthat resolution will soon be found. We do not want a situation like the one at the platinum mines where people have been

A day after story appeared, the municipality visited her home to inspect damage. That’s the power of the Fever.

Science is in need of your love and support
IF you ask any scientist why they do whattheydo, you will obviouslyget varying answers. An undergraduate might tell you something very different to a post doctorate student – who at this stage would have asked him or her self the same question with increas ing frequency over the years. I could run out of oped space ex plaining the reasons why science is important in our lives, but for the purpose of this column I will only tell you that it is to vanquish ignorance and exercise a healthy dose of skep ticism. Too many of us are victims of pseudoscience, myths, misconcep tions and incorrect use of science thanks to marketing ploys. Ignorance can be easily over come, but if you throw a dose of ego into the mix, you have a misguided sense of selfpreservation when it comesto“touchy”issuessuchascre ationism, vaccination, evolution, al ternative medicine and nutritional information. Thankfully, we can save our selves big headaches if we apply the simplest tenet of science, which boils down to “assume nothing, question everything”. Science journalism exists not on ly as a factchecking tool, but as a standard by which we practice healthy skepticism not cynicism to better ourselves and othersintel lectually. It is unfortunate therefore that science stories do not hold a lot of weight in terms of editorial space in many national and indeed local pa pers in South Africa.
Science stories have to compete withsportsandpolitics,withthelat ter being in great supply. Asascienceadvocate,itis mydu ty to try to convince you to like (or at least care about) science, but it is not a simple task, and after all, a sports’ journalist doesn’t need to convince sports’ fans why they should like sports. Writing science articles is not easy, and given the demands made on small news teams, journalists usually find themselves with ridicu lous schedules and little or no social life. This makes it even more difficult tofind personal time to writeabout science, which many editors are loathetoacceptasthewriteupmay not have as much pulling power as an accident or political scandal. But it’s not only about the pull ing power when it comes to nonsci entific articles; science can be in timidating to the uninitiated. I would love to tell you that sci ence is all about the discovery of some wonder material or newly dis covered giant killer chicken or the advent of a space rock on a collision coursewithKZN,butthisisveryrare ly the case. Of course, stories like this do ex ist, and you can and should read about them on the net. Some of my favourite reputable sitesinclude“IF*ckingLoveScience” and Phil Plait’s “Bad Astronomy”. Some of the best science writing in the world can also be found at Na tional Geographic’s “Phenomena”. Inacountryandaprovincewhere science education is still far below the global benchmark, it is time for us to consciously abandon our fear of science. We need to fall in love with the wonder of science, but also be care ful to avoid “bumpersticker” sci ence, as one of South Africa’s fore most science journalists (and au thor of Searching African Skies) Sarah Wild once put it. I encourage you to take the plunge into the deep, beautiful and mysterious world of science. You won’t regret it. Sibusiso can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org

Deployment of cadres is dragging the country down
Male chauvinism is alive in Margate OUR complex recently appointed a new board of trustees. The administrator, accompanied by two members of the new board, duly came round to inspect a problem pertaining to damp revealed in a myriad vertical and horizontal cracks in the walls of our unit. My son, who purchased the simplex for his 70-year-old mother seven years ago, called in a structural surveyor who diagnosed the problem as the simplex built on marshy ground. My son has resided in the UK for the past 13 years. I do believe that, owing to feelings of inferiority, the administrator at our recent
meetings was incapable of speaking man-to-man to him. Besides refusing to answer his e-mails,heoptedtoget back at him by relating to his elderly mother as to a servant. His conduct set the tone for the manner in which he expects the new board of members to treat her! On walking through the rooms he noted and photographed all the cracks ordering the elderly woman (now 77 and diagnosed with cardiac failure) to sand the cracks and then paint the walls! On proceeding into the fenced back yard he said we must pull out all the grass growing in between
THE results of the survey conducted by the SA Institute of Race Relations indicate that the ANC-dominated Eastern Cape has eight out of 10 worst-performing municipalities in the land. This is in stark contrast with the Western CapewheretheDemocratic Alliance governs, and boasts seven of the top 10 municipalities. The raw date has been extracted from the Auditor General’s reports, the 2011 census, and the National Treasury. The report lists cadre deployment and political interference as two of the main culprits in dragging South Africa’s municipalities down.

Water supply improvement plans actioned UGU District Municipality is rolling out its six week emergency pipe line replacement project in Ram sgate and Marburg to reduce the troublesome water supply in these areas. The replacement of a 34 metre pipeline for improved water supply is under way. Ugu District Municipality Spokesperson Sipho Khuzwayo said this multimillion rand up grade will see residents living on R61 Marine Drive, Linton Road, Er asmus Drive and Lynne Road in Ramsgate and those on Valley Road and Crescent Street in Mar gate having access to improved and sustainable water supply by the end of June 2014. “The municipality warns that while works continue on the ground, communities will experi ence ad hoc water outages through tieins and damage to existing old mains.
Ugu Dis trict Mu nicipality replaces old water pipelines in Ramsgate and Mar burg.
The contractors are being care ful as to minimise any disruptions of supply. In the case of outages as has occurred in Ramsgate, plumbing teams are on standby to restore any loss in supply as fast and effectively as possible. Water tankers have been dis patched to the affected areas”, said Khuzwayo. He added that the municipality sincerely apolo gises for any inconvenience that
might be caused during this up grade project. For regular updates on the pipeline upgrade, water and sani tation issues, communities are urged to engage with their ward councillors and also visit the water services facebook page Ugu Mu nicipality: Water and Sanitation Services or call 08000 WATER (92837) or (039) 688 5830/36,” said Khuzwayo.
Shipwrecks off the KZN coast IN 1552, The São João was the first cargo ship to be wrecked along South Africa's coastline. The vessel was carrying pepper, Chinese porcelain, cowry shells, carnelian beads and other merchandise. The ship, with around 600 people on board, ran
aground off what is now known as Port Edward, near the Kuboboyi River. One hun dred died attempting to get ashore, the rest made a temporary camp, near 'Trage dy Hill' (since named for a massacre of the local Nguni clan by a Zulu war band in 1831). The Sao Bento was wrecked on Msika ba Island in 1554. A survivor from the Sao Bento gave a detailed account of the walk from the Msikaba River to the Mtamvuna River.Some150peoplelosttheirlivesinthe

ONE of our key market niches is that of the meetings incentives conferences and events (mice) market and given that a number of our hospitality properties along the coast and inland have the facilities to host mainly small to mediumscale occasions of this nature, it is a segment that cannot be ignored. With CemAir now offering regular flights to and from OR Tambo Airport, it is my contention that the corporate sectorinGautengmaywellrelook at our destination as a possibility for having their conferences, seminars and events. In addition, there is a plethora of professional organisations,academicalliances,sector associations in South Africa with links and affiliations to regional (Africa) and international bodies. In most cases, these organisations have annual conferences and as such, an oppor-
tunity for us pops up. We at Ugu South Coast Tourism have been engaging with our provincial conventions bureau to ascertain the measure to which we can tap into this opportunity. There are numerous conferences that do not require the utilisation of mega facilities such as the ICC in Durban and we seek to nibble at those prospects. This brings me to the principle of having a South Coastbased professional conference organiser (PCO). Our company is willing to have in our offices a PCO who will run their own business and, in conjunction with us, source, and manage mice opportunities. To date there does not appear to be a PCO in our vicinity. We believe that in having an “inhouse” PCO service, there is scope for a person to have a successful conferencing operation with some overheads being alleviated by be-
ing in our offices. Mice activity is an excellent vehicle to induce inter- seasonal bed occupancies and increase utilisation of our other experiences such as oceanic excursions, golf, team- building and adventure outings. In some aspects we are opening up opportunity for enterprise and will welcome approaches from suitably qualified, experienced and registeredpersonstodrivethe miceoptionforourtourismindustry. If we cannot source a local person, we may be compelled to establish a strategic alliance with one or other PCO from the Durban area. Should our mice markets show signs of growth, then that can motivate the development of a dedicated conference and/or Expo centre that has capacity to host larger numbers of delegates. Have a relaxed week in paradise.

NGEL’S Care, a shelter for the homeless in Paddock, is relocating to other premises in the area. Previoulsy called Angel’s Wings, it has been run by Jandré and Carlin Foster for eight years. There are two shelters that make up Angel’s Care — one is a double-story house called Lake Placid and the other a tented area. “We have to expand on the house and move the people out of the tents and into Lake Placid because there is no running water or electricity,” said Jandré. He said the Ugu District Municipality used to send water tankers twice a week, but since March 2013, has stopped. “It’s very unhygienic. People can’t live without water. There are many children who live at the shelter and they are falling ill.” He said the shelter was in need of donations. “We need building supplies and temporary shelter such as tents in order to make this move
successful.” There are currently 122 people living at the shelter, the majority of whom are sickly. Some are bipolar and are on chronic medication. “We have had lots of help from the farmers in Paddock as well as businesses and people in the community. All we need now is to move out of that unhygienic spot.” Spokesperson for Ugu District Municipality Sipho Khuzwayo said the municipality used to provide Angel’s Care in Paddock with water on an ad hoc basis. “This was done due to the area not having a regional water supply. The community in the said area rely on boreholes,” said Khuzwayo. “Due to major financial implications to send out tankers, the municipality asked if the care centre can pay for the delivery of water. The owners of this property were requested to pay the cost for the tankering of water, however no one has, to date, come forward.” To assist Angel’s Care with its move or for more information, contact Jandré on 073 706 2566.

Ukuthatha izinto kalula kungakulalisa esitokisini May 30, 2014
GIBONE kahle ngoLwesihlanu ekuseni ngifika esikhumulweni sezindiza esikhulu eNingizimu Afrika, i-O.R. Tambo ukuthi kulula kangakanani ukulala ezitokisini uma uthatha izinto kalula. Bengihamba nozakwethu ongumhleli omkhulu ophikweni
lwamaphephandaba omphakathi kwaMedia 24 KwaZulu-Natal uDesiree Erasmus siphikelele emcimbini wokuklomelisa abahlabene ngezindlela ezahlukene kwezobuntatheli. Lapha kuklonyeliswa izintatheli emikhakheni ehlukene, namaphephandaba jikelele. Kodwa-ke lolu daba angiluqondisile kakhulu emcimbini wezintatheli. Luqondene nami ngqo. Ngazi kahle ukuthi abangani bami abaholwa nguNyikinyibhoxo bazothi ngidlala ukuguga nokuba novalo entanyeni. Bengingaphethe imithwalo eminingi ngoba bengizobuya ngakusasa. Bengiphethe ‘umshini wami’ wokuthwebula nesikhwama esimnyama sesudi ebengizoyigqoka emcimbini ebusuku. Insizwa eyemukela abagibeli ebhanoyini icele ukungibekela isikhwama sami egunjini okulengiswa kulo izimpahla bese ngisith-
atha uma sengiphuma. Izihlalo zethu sinoDesiree beziphakathi nendawo. Beligcwele ibhanoyi, iningi labagibeli kungamaqabane kaKhongolose abelibambise komkhulu ePitoli. Omunye walamaqabane bekunguSam Kikine, isishoshovu esazakhela igama silwela abasebenzi ngezikhathi kusabusa uhulumeni wobandlululo. Naye umfo kaKikine ubephethe isikhwama esifana ncamashi nesami, naso sabekwa egunjini elifanayo nokubekwe lona esami. Uma sekuphunywa ebhanoyini, wehla kuqala umfo kaKikine wamane wathatha isikhwama esimnyama wasilengisa ehlombe, zaya. Uma sengifika kuleligumbi obekubekwe kulona isikhwama sami, asisekho kukhona esinezimpahla engingazazi. Nginele ngasho ukuthi akusona esami leso sikhwama, yasuka inhlamvu le
nsizwa ebingibekele sona ijahe ebhasini elilayisha abagibeli libayisa ngaphakathi esikhumulweni sezindiza, yasithola kumfo kaKikine.

Bekuyothatha isikhathi esingakanani ukuthi kutholakale iqiniso? Thina sikhule kukhona amaphoyisa anezinhliziyo ezincane amane akuvalele phakathi

Port Shepstone Child Welfare’s compassionate, caring manager >> ‘Government needs to invest resources in communities. That’s what South Africa needs’ CANDYCE KRISHNA
HE Port Shepstone Child Welfare boasts many friendly staff who assist children and families in need. Among them is manager Sagree Naicker, whohas been a socialworker for 22 years. “I wanted to be a missionary, but one of my mentors told me I will be well suited to social work because I like helping people,” said Naicker. Being involved in church events, youth groups and teaching Sunday school classes has been her passion
from the get-go. “I come from humble beginnings. My father was a farmer and taught me to be independent from a young age. We were not rich.” He died when Naicker was 15. NaickermovedfromPietermaritzburg six years ago to take a position at ‘Give a Child a Family’ in Margate. “A few months later, an opportunity at Port Shepstone Child Welfare came up. I love my job and I love the people with whom I work.” Naicker said her mother relied on social grants to get her and her siblings through school. She matriculated with excellent

I prayed hard that I would be able to study.” Her first course at Unisa cost R160 and comprised one subject. “At that time it was a lot of
money for one subject. I then received donations and bursaries to complete my studies. I also worked while I studied. It took me seven years to get a degree, but I did it.” She said she would love to see adults protect children from social ills, abuse, violence and so on instead of exploiting them. “The government needs to invest
resources in communities. It’s no use spending billions of rands handing out free condoms at schools and clinics.” She said if more learning centres with counsellors and tutors were established, children would not be idle and have time to think of engaging in sexual and criminal activities. “That’s what South Africa needs.”

YOU only have two hands, and that's not usually enough to keep more than one child corralled and next to you as you run errands or shop at the mall. Keeping your children close will prevent them from getting lost and will ease your mind about more serious events such as kidnapping or injury. Depending on the age of your child, establish a few rules and behaviours that encourage your child to stay close. Step 1

Instruct your children to stay with you no matter how old they are. Emphasise that they need to stay where you can see them and that they should never run off while you're in a public place or at the mall. If your older children want to go to a certain store or see something in particular at a public place, get them to ask first, and then accompany them. Step 2 Hold your children's hands. Even primary school children are often willing to hold a parent's hand. When you walk through the mall or public place handinhand, you'll always know that your children are close and safe. If you have more than two children with you, encourage them to hold hands so your
group forms a chain and everyone is connected to at least one other person. Step 3 Keep small children in a stroller. Strap babies, toddlers and young preschoolers into a stroller so they can't take off when you're not looking. If you have more than one small child, consider using a double stroller to keep them corralled. Many malls and public places, such as zoos and museums, allow you to take in wagons, which are another effective way to keep your children together. Malls might also rent shopping carts, which is another way to keep your children close by. Step 4 Dress your children the same. This works best for trips to an amusement park or other large venues. Use shirts that are the same bright colour or buy matching shirts for everyone to wear. The matching clothes will make it easier for you to spot your children and keep track of them. Don't put your child's name on the clothing how ever, because it can invite predators to attempt to make contact. — www.everydaylife.globalpost.com

Keep your pool well maintained in winter to prevent long term damage. ALTHOUGH you don't often use the pool in winter, it still needs to be maintained so it can be in the best condition for the following summer. As the weather cools down and gets colder, the formation of algae is significantly reduced. The water's temperature will be much cooler, so the need to chlorinate and run the pool filter for long hours each day becomes unnecessary. Here are a few easy tips on how to maintain your pool and keep it looking in tiptop condition all through the winter... Close up the pool The first thing that needs to be done is that you need to clean out the leaf traps and then backwash your pool. Once all is clean and the pool is topped up to the correct level, you can start with the closing up preparations. Your pool needs to be shocked with a high dos age of chlorine at the beginning of winter; this will keep the pool blue without having to use chlorine for the rest of the winter months. Once you have added the extra chlorine, run the filter for a 12 hour period, allowing the chlorine to spread evenly throughout the pool. Instead of running the pool for eight to 12 hours a day, you can reduce this to six hours every third day. This is more than enough to keep the pool blue and the motor in good shape this also helps with

the reduction of electrical consumption. Your electrical bill in winter sky rockets due to the extra heating costs, so offsetting this extra ex pense by using your pool motor a little less is a much welcomed costsaving benefit. Cover the pool To prevent evaporation and having to spend money topping up your pool throughout winter, and to eliminate debris from ending up in the pool water, it is a good idea to buy a pool cover. One can pick these up at any pool shop they are usually made up of a kind of bubble plastic that floats on top of the water. All that needs to be done is to cut it down to size and your pool will be well looked after during the cold months. As soon as the weather starts to warm up, re move the pool blanket from the surface of the pool as the warmer temperature will increase the devel opment of algae in the water, and that is the last thing you want. Extreme cold Keep an eye on the weather forecast and if you are in for very cold weather, it is wise to run the pool pump during this time. The extreme cold does not usually last longer than 48 hours. By running the pool pump during this time, you will stop the water from freezing in the pump or pipes, preventing any serious damage. If you have a solar heating system for your pool, with pipes that run to the panels on the roof of your home, be sure to drain the system, as the very cold weather could freeze up the water in the system and burst or damage the pipes. As summer approaches and the weather starts to warm up, you will need to start running the motor more often, as well as checking the pH, chlorine, and alkaline levels of the pool. The warmer the water gets, the faster the algae will start to grow. Before you know it, the warm weather will be back and your pool will be in tiptop condition for that first spring dip. By maintaining the pool throughout winter, you will have to do very little to the water to enjoy your pool again during summer. property24.com

LOOR tiles can get cracked due to wear and tear or through damage if a heavy object is dropped on them. Home décor and DIY expert Janice Anderssen tells us how replacing a single tile is more costeffective that retiling an entire floor. It’s always a good idea to keep a few extra tiles when tiling any area for exactly this type of repair.

• Remove grout from around the edges of the broken tile. A grout raker is perfect for this task. • Drill a series of holes into the broken tile. This helps to break it up, making it easier to remove. • Remove the broken tile with a cold chisel and club hammer, then scrape the old adhesive off the floor surface. Be sure to wear gloves and protective goggles. Dispose of broken tile safely wrap in news paper. • Apply adhesive to the back of the new tile and position it. Use a spirit level to check that it sits flush with the surrounding tiles. • Allow the adhesive to dry, then grout the new tile. Clean off any excess with a damp sponge.

DIY tip: A spirit level contains three vials. The vial in the middle determines the horizontal level, while the end vials determine the vertical level. A spirit level is available in various lengths, ranging from 450mm to 1.8m in length. When tiling an entire floor, purchase about 10 per cent more tile to take into account wastage and later breakage.

trientreleasing bacteria. And it harbours rootextending fungi that help make growing conditions optimal. Organic gardeners also stress problem prevention in the gar den. Putting plants in the right amount of sun, along with suitable soil, proper spacing, and ideal planting and watering, allows most plants to thrive with minimal upsets. Make compost the lazy way by layering leaves, lawn clippings, and kitchen waste. Then simply leave it until it’s ready. Nature’s recyclers will take organic matter no matter how it is presented and turn it into rich, dark compost. This process just takes longer in an untended pile. To begin your compost heap, dump yard scraps in a far corner of the yard. An ideal blend would be equal amounts of soft or green material (manure and fresh leaves) and brown or hard material (dead leaves and chopped twigs). Or, if you prefer, keep the compost WE’RE STILL IN TOWN materials neatly contained in a wooden slat or wire mesh bin. AFTER 30 YEARS If you put an access door on the bottom of the bin, you can scoop out the finished compost at the bottom while the rest is still decaying. Add compost starter or good garden soil to a new compost pile to help jumpstart the decay of or ganic materials. Compost starter, available in gardening shops, contains decaycausing microorganisms. Some brands also contain nutrients, enzymes, hormones, and other stimulants that help decomposers work as fast as possible. Use perforated PVC pipes to aerate compost piles. An ideal compost pile will be about a metre high, big enough to get warm from the heat of decay. Why is heat important?

rganic gardening is popular today, and for good reason: it works wonderfully! Organic gardeners shun the use of syn thetic chemicals to keep their yards free from potential haz ards. But the real success of organic gardens lies in the methods used to keep plants growing vigorously, without a heavy reliance on sprays. Organic gardening cuts right to the heart of the matter: soil. Soil is the life force of the garden. When enriched with organic matter, the soil becomes moist, fertile, and airy ideal for healthy plants.

Preparing your furniture for winter >> Always work in a wellventilated area
RUSH the furniture with a stiff-bristled brush to remove dirt and debris. For heavily soiled surfaces, clean with a pressure washer and allow the furniture to dry completely Prep the area. Lay a large dropcloth on the ground outside. Place the wooden furniture in the centreofthedrop-cloth.Leaveenough room around it so that you can easily spray the furniture from every angle. Be sure to set up your work space away from any other furniture or structures. Put on gloves and safety goggles. Stir the weatherproofing sealer and then pour it into the spray canister with a funnel. Screw the top onto the spray canister tightly — it works on a vacuum principle. Prime the pump by pulling up and down on the central lever. Stop once it becomes difficult to depress. Hold the nozzle of the spray canister about 15 centimetres from the surface of the wood and depress the handle to start spraying the sealer. Move from side to

side to apply an even coat. Let the furniture dry for at least two hours, or the time recommended on the product label. Flip the furniture over and seal the remaining side. Let the entire piece dry for 24 hours. Apply one to two additional coats if desired. With some products, one coat weatherproofs outdoor furniture effectively, while others require a few thin layers for the best results. Tips and warnings • When using a spray canister, plan your project for a calm, nonwindy day. • Brush-on weatherproofing products are readily available in most hardware and home improvement stores, and may be the best option if you don't have access to a large, outdoor workspace. These products may require multiple coats for the best results. • Add richness to your outdoor furniturebyusingaweatherproofing product with a tint. • Always work in a well-ventilated area. — Property24.com

Safe night driving
IT is estimated that in the U.S. nighttime driving between 6pm and 6am may only account for about 23% of all vehicle kilometres travelled, nevertheless it accounts for more than 50% of all fatalities for vehicle occupants aged 18 and older. The statistics in South Africa are not available, but are similar, if not higher. With winter on its way many motorists are now leaving for school and work in the dark and returning in the dark when there is reduced visibility. “At dusk and dawn, drivers lose the advantage of colour and contrast which they have during the day. This isdue,inpart,totheeye’sabilitytoadjust,” says Les Mc Master, chairman of the Motor Industry Workshop Association (MIWA). Mc Master says there are several ways to protect yourself while driving at night. • Let your eyes adjust The eye naturally adjusts to the darkness, but it can take up to 30 minutesforyoureyestoadapttodarkness fully and drivers should reduce speed during this transitional time. Eugene Herbert of MasterDrive , agrees, saying regardless of how effective your headlights are, they do not adequately light sections of the road on either side of the vehicle. He also highlights the danger of glare and recovery time, saying that while most people’s eyes recover from such glare within three to five seconds, recovery times of seven seconds or longer are not uncommon and this increases with age. “Itmaybeusefultotalktoyoureyecareprovideraboutspecialanti-glare glasses that can help you see better at night,” Mc Master advises.
•Reduce your speed In view of the reduced visibility, it is advisable for motorists to reduce their speed. Reaction time while driving is typically 1.5 seconds. This means that if you notice a car suddenly stopping in front of you, it will take you an average of 1.5 seconds to react. IR S Slowing your speed IM RE PA R L E E T DS M AG A N slightly is one of the best ways to avoid head-on JINKY collisions, especially at Tel: 039 312 0001 night when your vision Cell: 082 821 8642 Email: email@example.com distance is limited by your headlights. You tried the rest, now come to the best! •Don’t drive when tired
Exhaustion severely affects focus and reaction time, so it is advisable to keep driving to a minimum in these circumstances. •Avoid distractions Pay attention to all driving safety laws including not speaking on a cellphone. One needs to minimise one’s distractions so that you can focus on the road completely. Cellphones should be turned off and passengers asked to avoid pointing at things outsidethecarorsocialisinginawaythat requires your visual attention. •Do a quick car-safety check Before driving in the dark make sure your headlights, taillights and signal lights are clean and working properly. You should also consider

In 1948 the ﬁrst Volkswagens rolled off the assembly line in Wolfsburg Germany. It was a continuation of the "Peoples car" designed by Ferdinand Porche in the late 1930's. It later became the best selling car in the history of motor vehicles, and many "beetles' are still on the road today. Britain's "peoples car" was launched in 1948 and known as the Morris Minor. It was designed by Alec Issigonis and featured unitary costruction, rack & pinion steering and independent front suspension giving it very good handling characteristics. It soon became a best seller and by the time production was discontinued many millions were sold. Many People today have fond memories of these highly collectable vehicles.

Worn shock absorbers seriously compromise a car’s handling and safety on the road, but be cause shock absorbers wear out gradually, motorists often adjust unconsciously to the change in their vehicle’s handling, unaware of thedanger they’reinduetotheefficiencyofvital components being compromised. “It’s essential that motorists are aware of howdangerouswornshockscanbeandfamiliar ise themselves with the signs that their car’s shocks may be due for replacement,” says Les Mc Master, chairman of the Motor Industry Workshop Association (MIWA.) Independent research on the extent to which worn shock absorbers impacts on a vehi cle’s safety shows that they compromise the driver’s ability to stop, steer and maintain vehi cle stability. “In fact it takes 2.6 metres longer to stop from a speed of 80 km/h on a straight road with only one driver in the car and it takes 11.3 metres longer to stop when fully loaded and

However Mc Master also cautions against opting for replacing your worn shocks with cheap – and unsafe shock absorbers. Tests have proved that cheap, imported shocks are dangerous because they aren’t built robustly, the quality of the oil is inferior, they fail the fa tiguetest,lackflexibilityandareoftenincorrect ly assembled. “Quality is vital in this component of a vehicle. It’s best not to scrimp on this essen tial part of driving a roadworthy vehicle.

Striders to hit the road >> South Coast runners aim to make their mark at Comrades Marathon CANDYCE KRISHNA
ARD is what makes it great” is the slogan for this year’s Comrades Marathon and athletes from the South Coast Striders could not agree more. The South Coast Striders is the only athletics club in the area and comprises 155 members. This year the club boasts two novice runners, one which is 20years-old ; which is the youngest one can be to participate in the sports event. Isak Ludick of Uvongo is eagerly anticipating his twelfth marathon this year. Last year, he finished within 11 hours. He is also the captain for the club and is overseeing the training routines and preparations for the 55 others from the club who will take part in the run. “We started training six months ago which meant early mornings, even on weekends, four hour runs, supplements, healthy eating and exercise,” said Ludick. He added that participating was not easy but what kept him motivated was the atmosphere. “When we arrive, there’s people cheering us on, loud music and there’s such a vibe. The last 30kms are always the hardest. That’s when you’re tired, but you have to tell yourself to keep going. When you pass the finish line, it’s magical.” Debbie Ridley, chairman of the club said the marathon is always emotional for her. “This is my seventh Comrades and I know I’m going to cry when I hit the finish mark. Everyone does,” she
said. Ridley added that it was emotional because there’s so many highs and lows during the race. “Sometimes you’re positive and happy, then you get tired and you have negative thoughts in your mind. Then you see people cheering and dancing along the way and it keeps you motivated.” Novice athlete Makhosi Mhlophe of Margate said he loves running but was only motivated to compete in the Comrades after joining the South Coast Striders. “It’s great to have people who motivate you and share the same vision as you. Sometimes others see the potential you have, when you don’t,” said Mhlophe. He said he often told himself that the Comrades is too difficult and
used it as an excuse to not take part. “Iwoke uponedayandtoldmyself, yes it’s difficult but that’s not an excuse. I trained and I qualified.” The youngest novice runner in the club, 20-year-old Matthew Lindebaum, is ecstatic about the Comrades and has completed his 50th Park Run recently. The 5km run takes place every Sunday in the St Mike’s area. “I always thought of the Comrades is the big race. “I trained hard and I know I’m ready. It’s already such an achievement to have qualified.” Lindebaum follows an online training programme and trains four to five times a week. He runs about 65-80kms every week. For more details about the club call 082 441 5370.

Warriors handout another thrashing
May 30, 2014
The South Coast Warriors went up against UKZN away this past weekend and won 249, which is five points for the log. The second team also won 447. Ben Oosthuizen was named forwards man of the match and the overall man of the match was Chris Mitchell. Their next game is also an away game against Hill crest, whom they beat 170 in the first round
VIRTUALLY all soccer has come to a halt over this time of year. PHOTO: MG ROSCHER However, we look forward to 12 June when the World Cup kicks off in Brazil. As far as rugby is concerned, the Sharks continue to top the log in the Super 15. For the second week in a row they have beatenaNew Zealandteamontheirhome turf, this time accounting for Blues 2923. Rebels went down 1941 to Waratahs and this has moved Waratahs to second place on the combined log. Bulls have shownsteady improvement and easily accounted for Brumbies4423. Highlanders and Crusaders had a terrif ic clash which could have gone either way, but the visitors crept in by two points. Hurricanes were fantastic in absolutely outplaying Chiefs to record a 458 victory. Western Force predictably beat Lions 29 19, and Stormers played their best game of the season by destroying Cheetahs 330. After last weekend’s results, Crusaders are now third, with Western Force, Hurri canes and Highlanders all only one point behind. On Friday at 9:35am, Crusaders will pick up a bonus point against Western Forceandwinbyatleastsevenpoints. Lat er at 11:40am, Reds will get annihilated by Highlanders in a onesided game, where the visitors will win by more than 20 points. On Saturday, the first game starts at 6:35am between Chiefs and Waratahs. Here I think the home side will bounce back after their disappointing game last week and beat the visitors by three points. At 9:35am, Blues host Hurricanes where the visitors may well go away with the spoils by winning by five points. Back at home, Brumbies will probably beat Rebels by at least seven points. At 5:05pm, Lions will get a lesson from Bulls and go down by at least 10 south coast points.
