30k for top school posts >> Ugu education director in jobsforcash scam
GU district Department of Education (DoE) director for lower South Coast, Mfundi Sibiya,has been implicated in a jobsfor-cash scam which involves selling of senior DoE posts to anyone willing to fork out R30 000. This came to light after an investigation by our sister newspaper, City Press, revealed that Sibiya (54), two school principals from Hibberdene and Umzumbe and an Umzumbe ANC ward 16 councillor allegedly ordered a hit on Nkosinathi Zondi (46) last year after he blew the whistle on the practice. At the time of his death, Zondi was Nyonemhlophe Primary School principal and had just been elected Sadtu’s South Coast regional chairman. He was shot five times at his home last May. Sibiya, Lindani Mkhize (40) and Mhlengi Luthuli (38) and the councillor were arrested this year for planning his death and were granted

bail in the Umlazi Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday last week. Zondi died shortly after speakingout on what he said was a “rife practice” on the South Coast of selling government posts and tenders by Sibiya. Andile Zulu and Lungisani Makhoba are alleged to be the hitmen hired by Sibiya and his co-accused and are currently in police custody. It was revealed by the investigating officer in court last week that the chairperson of the Khathi High school governing body in Mthwalume, Sandile Mzizi, allegedly organised the hit-men for Sibiya after receiving R12 000. Mzizi has since turned state witness. A senior Port Shepstone Sadtu official who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed that Sibiya controlled the allocation of posts to candidates who had paid for them. Zondi’swifeMatutu,whowasateacher, was shot dead while walking to school in Umlazi three years ago. That case remains open. Turn to page 2

30K for top posts FROM PAGE 1 Sibiya was released on bail of R5 000. Mkhize and Luthuli’s bail was set at R3 000. The DoE has in the meantime announced that it has suspended the trio. Department spokesperson Muzi Mahlam bi said suspending the three was “the right thing to do” and did not mean they were guilty. “The department [of education] will tempo rarily fill their positions so the function of educa tion can continue. We will continue to monitor the case and once the legal process is over, we will then take further steps.” Sibiya’s bail conditions stipulate that he not directly or indirectly interfere, communicate or influence any state witnesses, not change his residential address, not leave Kwa ZuluNatal without prior permission from the in vestigating officer and report every Saturday to Scottburgh SAPS. Mkhize and Luthuli were not or dered to relocate but to report to Hibberdene and the nearest police station respectively. They are not to contact witnesses or leave the province.

Seal rescue >> Stranded ‘local’ seal is successfully transported to uShaka Sea World in Durban
SEAL stranded at Banana Beach on Saturday morning was safely transported to uShaka Sea World in Durban where it is recuperating after receiving treatment. KZN Ezemvelo Wildlife, Port Shepstone
Search and Rescue, Netcare 911 and the NSRI assisted in the operation after being called by a beachgoer who spotted the distressed animal. Ezemvelo officer, Thulani Mlawu, said the seal may have been on the beach since the previous night. “We do not know how old the seal is but it looked fully grown. Seals beach when they

He said the seal was not injured but an assessment will be carried out at Sea World. “Once the seal has got his strength back, he will be released back into the ocean.” The seal is expected to make a full recovery in the next nine months.

A LIVE preelection debate had to be stopped on Tuesday after local supporters from various parties started booing debaters and each other. Broadcast by Ugu Youth Radio 93.4FM, the seg ment was intended to give all parties a chance to debate their manifestos in a runup to next week’s national election. Held at the Port Shepstone Civic Centre, the de bate included members from the ANC, NFP, Cope, SACDP, IFP and DA. Before being taken off air, the local party repre sentatives managed to get some of their messages across, but as the crowd grew increasingly unruly, it was decided to can the segment. Mntomuhle Khawula said that the IFP would speedup service delivery in towns and rural areas
and ensure quality education for all by building schools. He said affordable rates would be set for people in towns and roads would be improved. The ANC’s Sipho Dlamalala said the party is cele brating 20 years of freedom and service delivery with the people of South Africa and that its work is credi ble. “We have provided people with water, electricity, land claims, access to free basic education and have provided bursaries to deserving students to ensure quality education for all. We have improved health care for all and provided national health insurance. We committed ourselves to fighting corruption,” said Dlamalala. Cope’s Bheki Khusi lashed out at the ANCled gov ernment, accusing it of being “proud” and of being too liberal with allocation of social grants. “South Africa is becoming a social grantdepend ent state. I am not saying that I am against the

provision of social grants to the poor people, but what I disagree with is ANC politicians who stand proudly in the public podiums and say they have pro vided so much social grants to the people.” Khusi urged voters to make a mark for Cope so that they could fight corruption. “We need to change our electoral system and have a president elected by the people themselves,” he said. Layidliva Mbuthuma urged people to vote NFP to stop provision of infrastructure without consulta tion. “We must stop the building of white elephants, which are created by a lack of public consultations.” The SACDP’s Ntokozo Zama said that they have taken note of unrest at universities caused by al leged poor administration and financial aid issues. “We will sort out that when we get into power. We will create [an environment conducive to financial independence] so that they will not depend on social grants for survival. “Social grants take us backwards and as a country will not be sustainable. We will grow tourism and cre ate more jobs. We will stop cadre deployment and employment of friends in government. “We will stop corruption and end the red tape for those that want to start their own businesses,” said Zama. Lennard Ngcobo of the DA said “Together for change and jobs, DA will cut corruption and speedup service delivery as we do in the Western Cape. “We will provide better health care, fight poverty and create sustainable and real jobs for our people.”

HEN an Umtentweni man witnessed a South Africa Social Security Agency (SASSA) employee place her own fingerprints on a document with a plastic bag over her hand, the first thought that crossed his mind was that it was fraud. The man, who asked not to be named for fear of being victimised, recorded the incident at Maburg SASSA offices on 18 February. After recording the incident with his cellphone, he says he notified senior SASSA staff who he says “brushed me off.” The Fever is in possession of the video footage which can be viewed on our website www.southcoastfever.co.za. It shows a woman believed to be a SASSA employee inking and putting her own fingerprints on a stack of documents. What raises suspicion is that the woman’s hand is covered by a green plastic bag as she inks and stamps her fingerprints. “This had to be brought to someone’s attention as I’m sure this is not standard practice.Ispoke to staff at the office but they didn’t seem to care. “I then got the numbers of three managers and contacted them.

could be fraudulent activities going on in their office.” The Fever contacted Frank Earl, SASSA’s Head of Operations for KwaZulu-Natal for comment and furnished him with the complainant’s details. After viewing the video clip he first commented that an investigation would be conducted. About two weeks later, Earl responded: “We have no reason to believe this is fraud.
The complainant is uncooperative with SASSA and we cannot conclude our investigation.” The Fever then questioned whether the employee’s actions in the video clip were standard practice. There has been no reply from Eearl. “Nobody from SASSA contacted me,” said the man. “They would have had my full attention if they did.”

Businesses rip into HCM >> Ongoing service delivery failures are hampering small, local businesses, say meeting attendants >>email@example.com
OCAL business owners used a meeting called by the Hibiscus Coast Municipality(HCM) on Thursday to rip into municipal representatives about their “disappointment” at ongoing service delivery failures which they say are negatively affecting small businesses. HCM called the meeting to try and find ways of “improving relations” with local business owners and to “listen to their concerns”. The main complaints raised by the business fraternity included poor communication from the municipality, poor maintenance of infrastructureandroads,andthemunicipality’s failure to “look after” local businesses. In his opening remarks, HCM municipal manager, Maxwell Mbili, said his office is aware that local businesses are the municipality’s “key
strategic partner” and need to be well looked after. Outlining what the municipality’s role is in the partnership, Mbili said it is HCM’s aim and duty to create an environment that is conducive for business to thrive. “If we are not creating that environment we expect you as the business sector to tell us, but for you to do that you need to structure yourselves and speak with one voice,” said Mbili. He was referring to what he said was a lack of unity; stating that the local business sector is “too fragmented”. He went on to say HCM has identified eight “enemies of the municipali-
ty” which hamper development in the region. He named the poor condition of the roads, slow refuse collection, broken street lights, verge maintenance, delays in approval of building plans, failure to enforce bylaws, failure to spend the capital budget and failure to strike a balance between compliance and service delivery. Mbili said there are programmes in place to tackle and address these shortcomings. “We have improved the turnaroundtimeforrefusecollectionto24 hours and we have budgeted R9 million for verge maintenance,” said Mbili.

in place to reward local businesses and also to attract new business into the area. He said most of the deterioration that was evident in the CBD, which ranges from illegal dumping to rampant disregard of traffic rules by trucks and taxis, was because of a lack of supervision. Margate Chamber of Business chairman, Ivan Naidoo, said the fact that the meeting was poorly attended could be attributed to HCM’s poor communication. He agreed that the local business sector is too divided and pointed to the infighting that has been going on in his own Chamber, which he said has finally been sorted out. “Our job is to promote the interests of emerging businesses but it is disappointing that they are not represented in this meeting,” said Naidoo. Mbili said he would look into the issues raised and report back in a follow-up meeting.

Authorities need to act decisively THIS week on page two we bring you the story of an alleged SASSA employee who, on a video clip, can be seen putting her prints on documents while her finger is cov ered with a plastic bag. The video can be viewed at www.southcoastfever.co.za, and it is up to you to decide what you see happening. The sad thing about this sce nario is that the man who secretly took the video took the matter to senior SASSA officials who downplayed it. The official could not or would not tell the ‘whistle blower’ or this newspaper any thing that may have allayed pub lic fears or a public outcry. Our lead story on page one about the alleged sale of govern ment posts is another issue up for severe scrutiny. May justice prevail. Next week, on Wednesday 7 May, you have an opportunity to vote. It would be unwise to squan der such an opportunity. We at the Fever urge you to make your mark, which is one of the best ways of holding government accountable.

PROPHET OF HUME
few years ago I had a very inter esting conversation with a man who shared our president's view that the ANC is going to rule South Africa forever. Our dear president's ex act words were actually that the ANC is going to stay in power until Jesus returns. I have never been that good at predicting the future, which is why I am well suited as a journalist. In fact, I have never aspired to have a job as glamorous as that of a prophet or even an ANC president. Besides exercising my right to vote, I don’t have a desire to actively take part in politics as I believe my skin is not thick enough. That does not stop me,though,from making observations and having opinions about what is going on. I’m already looking forward to the lull that usually comes after the gen eral elections. From my advantageous
position as a journalist I’ve noted the different campaigning tactics that various political parties have been employing. Already I can see which are working and which aren't. I'm not sure about ruling until Jesus returns, but what is apparent is that it may take a miracle for other parties to take control of the country, or even the province, from the ANC next year. I know that political parties spend a lot of money on campaign specialists and consultants, but I must say that I think some are just doing it wrong. I think the foremost rule when it comes to campaigning before you spend any money on it is that the party leadership has to be visible, and I'm not talking about TV. If you want people to vote for you, they have to see you and your party in the flesh constantly. The ANC looks like it became aware of this a long time ago because since the beginning of last year, no week went by without some ANC bigwig visiting a particu lar area. I have seen eight cabinet ministers and the entire KZN cabinet in the past four months. But then the ANC has many funds to dip into, both public and private, to enable it to fly its top and middle brass and their entourag es all around the country. The ANC can also afford to budget for and spend millions on food parcels that draw thousands to their gather ings all around the province. The Democratic Alliance (DA) seems to think that being vocal and
pointing out all the wrong things that the ANC is doing or not doing is the most perfect way of campaigning. I recently read a statement by DA president Hellen Zille that they are taking the KZN province in the 2016 local government elections. That would be interesting since I rarely ever see any senior DA leader actively cam paigning for his or her party in the areas I move in. The IFP seems to think that criti cizing the ruling party and mention ing all the good the IFP did when they ran the province many moons ago will translate into votes. The same goes for the NFP. I don't mean to rain on anybody's parade, but I think this is going to produce quite the opposite effect. I think the ANC has made it very difficult for other parties because it has conditioned people to free ‘stuff’, which is hard to keep up with. What the other parties should know is that the masses that have the ability to change the political land scape of the province and the country don't care about your plans for the year 2019. These people care only about what you can do for them today and now, thus the food parcels. Living in Africa means you have to do politics the African way and I be lieve the ANC has set a blueprint that is going to take many years to get rid of. Every election we are going to have from here onwards may just be won through availability of food parcels.

‘Don’t waste vote on small parties’
S heppie m ust Sheppie must lean-up iits ts a ct cclean-up act THIS past weekend I decided to take my family from Newcastle down to Port Shepstone for a “holiday by the seaside”. I was not expecting the town to look like the beaches we see on Top Billing, but I have to say I was rather disappointed by the poor state of the roads and the rubbish I
saw lying around. The litter in the photo taken on Saturday on Rethman Drive between R102 and Umtentweni beach was the first thing we saw as we drove into town. What an anti-climax! I know my family and I were not the only visitors to see this disturbing sight in one of
the province’s main tourist spots. As we were driving out of the town two days later on Monday, that pile of rubbish was still there and had grown. The local municipality also needs to make sure the potholes are repaired if we are to come back and visit here ever again. Disappointed
IN this constitutional democracy of ours, the voters are faced with an alphabet soup of political parties that are contesting the national and provincial elections. Many of them are built and based around one or two individuals or family concerns like the Mulders of the VF plus and what Rajbansi was for the Minority Front. The UDM is centred around Bantu Holomisa and the EFF around the misplaced popularity of Julius Malema. Then you have parties like COPE who spent its previous term of five years contesting its leadership battles in the courts of South Africa and did little to develop policy documents, thus leaving their supporters of 2009 confused and bewildered. In the once mighty IFP we have a party that is a former shadow of itself with a leader that is more concerned about his legacy than the performance and decline of his support base. Their offshoot, the NFP, is based mainly in KwaZuluNatal and is untested in provincial and National politics but aligned itself with the ANC at local government level. The ACDP is also a one
man show based on religious beliefs. Our constitution provides for religious freedom and recognises the right of all citizens to worship in churches and temples, tabernacles and mosques, wherever one feels comfortable to do so. That brings us to the remaining options. The Democratic Alliance and the African National Congress. We all know that the ANC under President Zuma is failing the country and is taking us backwards in all respects. Corruption is rife in all spheres of government under ANC control and it is a party of insiders and outsiders. If you are part of them you will benefit. When you are not part of their inner circle you are considered to be a second class citizen. We don’t even have to mention Nkandla or e-Tolls that are forced onto the general public and will be comingtotheotherprovinces. The ANC is a party of food parcels and promises. Before every election they go out to the poorer rural communities to secure their votes with promises of a better life andfoodparcelsthatarefunded by the taxpayers of this country.

Brace your wallet for more gouging LAST week’s article in the Fever ‘Hidden taxes gouging your wallet’ must have left middle class earners quite punch drunk. Here are a few more facts to sober them up a bit. February and March 2014 saw 166 000 job losses. The national government has accumulated almost R2 trillion in debt and servicing this will cost R115 billion
each year. Both Telkom and Eskom are in trouble and each willhavetoraiseR1billionper annum for the next five years. On the other hand, 92% of our provincial education budget is used to pay salaries. Our government with 34 ministers and 33 deputy ministers probably makes ours the largest government in the world. Our President has the most expensive private home
in the country. The ruling party thinks that the moral compass is an instrument; will have us believe that the Secrecy Bill will safeguardus;thatNkandlafell out of the sky as a present to the President and that taxpayers’ money growsontrees and media freedom is an alien concept. J.R. Port Shepstone
Just before the next election they appear again... with more of the same. The Democratic Alliance has a track record of service delivery where we govern. The Western Cape outperforms all the other provinces inallaspects.CapeTownisthe best run city in South Africa and regularly wins international awards. Cape Town is also the best tourist destination. Twenty eight municipalities under DA control are out performing the rest. In short, where the DA governs we govern better than any other party. The DA has sound policies that we implement where we are in control. The DA is the only party that has shown consistent growth from 1994 to date. In 1994 the then DP received 1.7% of the vote and at the last election we received 24% of the vote. This trend is set to continue in the 2014 elections. The message is clear – don’t waste your vote on small parties that can’t make an impact in your life and future. Doug Rawlins Ugu Constituency Chairperson

Water issues and banana republics THE constant water shortage in Ramsgate area, which started as a trickle on 21 December 2013, has became a full blown (dry) storm experienced since 13 April. The utter mismanagement of our water supply by the Ugu District Municipality is nothing less than a criminal act perpetrated against the thousands of inhabitants and thousands more tourists who visit the area regularly. The water supply in Ramsgate failed on the following dates: 15 February, 4-5 March, and 9, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 25 April 2014. As you know, these dates coincided with school holidays and the Easter weekend. One can imagine the disappointment and outrage of holiday makers who pay thousands to spend time at the beaches, but had to endure the inconvenience of buying drinking water and be content not being able to
bath or take a shower for days on end. Holiday letting agents, managers and caretakers of holiday accommodations were inundated with complaints from tourists. I spoke to people with knowledge regarding the transfer of liquids over great distances and altitudes. It seems that the regulation of pressure in pipe lines is the greatest factor that keeps the systems safe and operational. I recently communicated with an official responsible for municipal water distribution about the constant pressure bursts of the old asbestos water lines at sea level. I was informed that water lines in certain areas in Ramsgate (specially at sea level) do not have pressure valves to regulate the constant flow of water – therefore the spike in water pressure each time the pipes are fixed. We have become so used to this fluctuationinwaterpressure,thatwe
can predict when the next pressure burst will occur! My question to Ugu is plain and simple: Why are these forces that regulate pressure in the water lines not adhered to? The technical teams spend every day fixing burst pipes, but nobody seems to care about the real solutions. How long will we have to endurethediscomfortandhumiliation? Is it perhaps the poor quality of workmanship of the technical people or does the problem lie higher up in management? Does Ugu have the financial resources to rectify the situation? Does the political will exist to start planning for future replacement of outdated water pipes? And what about regulating pressure of the water lines to prevent pressure bursts before they occur? Are we on the way to a banana republic? Johann Grobler Ramsgate

My husband and family leave me out Dear Doctor Nash, I married a divorced man, and all he wants in our marriage is peace because his previous wife was such a nag. Butwe live in an outbuilding on his father’s property. We support his family financially and when my husband and I are at work his parents look after our child. I can accept this as it is our cultural duty, and our child is safe. But when I am at work or out shopping my husband discusses our fami ly business with his parents and between them they make all the decisions. My husband and his family leave me out, but it is our life not his family’s. I am fed up living in an outhouse on their property and supporting them, and then my husband does not even ask my opinion, but just leaves me out. I want to move out and take my child and my husband, I want to be included in the
decisions that affect me and my family and not just be a money robot. One Angry Woman Dear O.A.W. I am with you, but there must be a reason why your husband is leaving you out of these decisions. Does he not think that you have a brain and some common sense? He knows you! If you are a sensible woman, as well as angry, I think you must sit him down and ask him why he is doing this, and if he has a good answer well and good, but if not then tell him marriage is a partnership and that means there has to be trust and sharing, so start to share with you and to respect your opinion. If not then tell him he will not see a cent of your salary and that means that he must sup port his family and his wife and child all on his own, and we hope this makes him happy be cause you will make the decisions.
TOURISM 360 Africa Bike Week and all JUSTIN MACKRORY: CEO SOUTH COAST TOURISM WITH the two long weekends and the school holidays over, Ugu South Coast Tourism cannot rest. From May 14, the ultra popular Africa Bike Week hits Margate as thousands of motor bike mad folk from all over South Africa converge on the Greater South Coast for a feast of retail, entertainment, out rides and biker fellowship as pre sented through the iconic Harley Davidson brand.
As the last of the riders rumble off home, the prospect of the Sar dine Festival Programme looms with all sorts of events being planned to not only draw visitors to our area but also provide experi ences to enhance their stay. If you combine fishing competi tions, golf and bowls events, Ugu Jazz festival, Lions Show, MTB events, Interprovincial Schools Netball, festivals and cultural events up and down the coast, beach programmes, the Margate Air Show, marathons and endur ance races (and the list goes on) it is true to say that here down south our collective of events is probably the most comprehensive of any in KwaZuluNatal at this time of year. As is the case with any tourist destination, we all need to receive all our visitors in a hugely welcom ing and hospitable manner after all word of mouth sells more than an advert in a glossy magazine. Deep in the bowels of the East ern Cape Highlands, the mountain
folk in the tiny hamlet of Rhodes started a Stoepfees whereby visi tors could walk the quaint streets and stop over at a number of charming homes to check out art, craft, sample foods, drink wine and be entertained all with a friendly and very personal touch. The result has been that after one year, Rhodes has become oversub scribed with visitors (some staying 60 km away just to take day trips to the ‘fees’) and the number of event days has been increased. It is that personal touch that impresses people. It is by going that extra mile for our paying cus tomer that will bring them back year after year and also for them to recommend our area to others. Staging event programmes like the Sardine Festival takes a huge amount of community commit ment and cooperation by organisa tions, local government, the tour ism sector, private individuals, clubs, law enforcement the media and promotional entities and Ugu South Coast Tourism. So when you see more cars and people coming to town, spare a thought for all who behind the scenes and often without thought of personal enrich ment have been work ing for our leisure, rec reation and tourism economy they are the real champions in the greater scheme of things. Looking forward to Africa Bike Week and our forthcoming events we extend a big welcome to all and sundry may your visit to the Para dise of the Zulu King dom be enriching and exceed expectations. I am off to polish up my Vespa for Afri ca Bike Week have an event filled and happy time.

At the awarding of title deeds to Mkholombe owners on Thursday are mayor Cynthia Mqwebu and house beneficiary Zakhona Duma.
BUY ALL FOR
>>firstname.lastname@example.org ILLEGAL occupants have been warned that if they do not vacate low-cost government housing, they will face the wrath of the law. Hibiscus Coast mayor, Cynthia Mqwebu, made the statement on Thursday last week at Umkholombe when she was handing over title deeds to residents. The deeds came after a long wait, with the houses being built in 1999. Mqwebu said she was aware of complaints made by residents about shoddy contractors and unnecessary delays in the issuing of deeds, but her main focus area was on the illegal occupants in the area, which she said she was well aware of. “We know that many of you just took occupation of the houses illegally when you saw them unoccupied. The legal beneficiaries of those houses could not be traced, or maybe they are dead, but there is a process to transfer title deeds to their relatives. “If you are in the house illegally, you must vacate now and report to the municipality before we send municipal police to evict you. You will not get title deeds because we have no title deeds for you. We have title deeds for legal beneficiaries,” said Mqwebu. She said that other title deeds are still being processed in Pietermaritzburg.

Building for the Lord
Volunteers at the con struction site of the Jeho vah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall in Murchison.
WHEN WATER MOVES, MAGIC HAPPENS
>> Volunteers plough in to construct Kingdom Hall VUSI MTHALANE
RELIGIOUS hall that is being built by volunteers has already reached roof level after only a month of construction. About 135 local volunteers joined in the construction of the Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall in Murchison during April.
The concrete foundation was laid in March and according to the church’s Rob Stamer, the project will be completed within the next three months. Stamer said all volunteers received training on site as most of them had not done construction work before. “Most of the volunteers
have office-based jobs but they were willing to get their hands dirty to see the word of God spread in this community,” said Stamer. Next week the roof will be put in place. Stamer said the current backlog of Kingdom Halls in South Africa stands at 300. “A lot of money for construction comes from
donations overseas and we are very grateful for that.” To minimise the backlog, Jehovah’s Witnesses plan to build more than 60 similar halls in cities, towns and rural areas every year. According to Stamer, 45 halls are needed each year to accommodate the growth of the church in South Africa.

SPCA to hold sterilisation drive CANDYCE KRISHNA
>>email@example.com THE Lower South Coast SPCA is offering sterilisation at a subsidised rate of R350 for dogs and cats, male and female, in May. To qualify, individuals must earn R5 000 or less a month. Proof of income and an affidavit to prove that the individual is unemployed is required. According to Michael Muller, manager for the Lower South Coast SPCA, the organisation received a
total of 2 471 animals - either through stray animals, donations or collections - between April 2013 and March this year. “The sad part is that only 441 of the stray animals were claimed by their owners. This leaves us with 2 030 animals that could be deemed as unwanted,” said Muller. He strongly advised pet owners to sterilize their pets in order to curb the high volumes of strays. The average cost of each animal amounts to
R447 a year. That is R1,1 million per anum. Most animals have a stay for about two months with us when we try and get them re-homed,” he said “If we could sterilise more dogs and cats to reducethenumberofunwanted domestic animals, it will reduce the cost of re-homing, prevent a lot of cruelty towards these animals and reduce the risk of spreading contagious diseases such as rabies.” The SPCA would like to achieve 500 sterilisations during the drive.
at the Kingfisher House in-patient unit, nurses also attend to and treat patients at home. “Counselling is provided for family members that may need it and sometimes we assist with reconciliations.” The children’s programme takes care of over 200 children either infected or affected by a life-threatening disease. Community health homebased care and HIV/Aids counselling courses are also offered to those who want to make a difference in their community. There are also various training and short courses on offer. “Receiving care from Hospice does not mean it is the end. Everyone deserves to live with, and to die with dignity,” said Van Dyk.

Planes are due to ‘hit’ Margate during the KZN Winter Airshow in June.
>> Aeronautical awesomeness is coming our way
HIS year’s Margate Airshow is on 14 June and is part of eight airshows for the annual KZN Winter Air Tour. Coming off the back of a suc cessful Durban Land, Sea and Air Festival where morethan145 000people flocked to Durban beach es to watch the aviation festival, the team now heads into another KZN Winter Air Tour season. The 2014 season adds another two locations bringing excitement to the skies above Dundee, La dysmith, Newcastle, Pietermaritzburg, Margate, Ri chards Bay, Mkuze and Ulundi. Another positive development is that shows in Ladysmith, Richards Bay, Mkuze and Ulundi will be free, making events like this more accessible. “We’re excited to bring aviation and our format of airshows to Dundee and Ladysmith this year as part of the KZN Winter Air Tour,” said event organiser Brian Emmenis. “There will be more exhibitors and some munici palities have really exciting plans for the day,” he
said. Dr Clive Coetzee from the KZN Treasury adds: “If we can leverage the airshows, pilots and vested stakeholders to the benefit of children then we are making a difference in the province and in the avia tion industry and we’re not just taking aviation to the people but we are bringing aviation to the chil dren.” Eachshowincludesupto20localeconomicdevel opment vendors who will trade at the airshow. Over the past two years the local economic development programme has grown significantly at each airshow with success stories of traders returning to be part of something special in their community”. Project director and KZN Air Events spokesperson Justin Scott said Dundee will mark the start of this year’s Winter Air Tour on 17 May. The show will then move to Ladysmith on 24 May, Newcastle on 31 May, Pietermaritzburg on 7 June, Margate on 14 June, Rich ards Bay on 21 June, Mkuze on 28 May and will close at Ulundi on 5 July. — Supplied.
‘Sistrs’ doing it for others
May 2, 2014
>> Built on humanitarian thinking , ‘Supporting Impoverished Societies Through Relief Services’ has a winning recipe CANDYCE KRISHNA >>news2@ feveronline.co.za
NYBODY who has a big heart and compassion for those less fortunate can be a sister for humanity, says Hassina Kathrada, founder of “Sistrs for Humanity”. The non-profit organisation’s mission is made clear in the acronym Sistrs - Supporting Impoverished Societies Through Relief Services. “My humanitarian work dates back to many years ago. Through fund-raising and various sponsors, people in South Africa, Gaza Strip and the war stricken Syria have been assisted,” she said. Kathrada became involvedinhumanitarian work in 2002. Having climbed Mount Kilamanjaro twice, to raise funds for a children’s hospital in Ghaza City, and hostingfund-raisingevents for many non-profit organisations; Kathrada decided it was
time to head her own projects from Port Shepstone. “Sistrs for Humanity was born in 2012. We have assisted many local creches and organisation on the South Coast. We also support local crafters by purchasing items from them which we resell sale to raise funds for those in need.” Sistrs are female volunteers who will do anything from making sandwiches for patients at the local hospital to assisting with organisingafund-raising event. “The men play a silent role as they are usually the ones who have work. They provide a sponsorship towards an event of project while the women are more hands-on. The donors in Port Shepstone have been amazing.”Kathrada says she spends most of her free time working on fund-raising projects. “It is so uplifting to help others and to see how grateful they are for even the smallest donation.”

HE time is drawing near for Expedition Africa and according to organisers Kinetic Gear, teams are furiously making arrangements to see the best of the greater South Coast area in the short space of time that they have before and after the race. Africa Expedition takes place from 25 to 31 May with the start and finish of the 500km epic race taking place in Port Edward. The international event involves mountain biking, trekking, kayaking,
swimming, rope-work and orienteering. “South Coast Tourism is consistently liaising with the organisers, offering event support and itinerary suggestions which, amongst other activities, include diving and visits into the hinterland,” says Justin Mackrory, Ugu South Coast Tourism’s CEO. “Given that the athletes must allow themselves one day in South Africa per time difference from their home country prior to the event to acclimatize, we have the opportunity to really im-
press these world athletes with what the South Coast has to offer.��� Top teams that have confirmed attendance thus far include Seagate New Zealand, Silva Sweden, Tecnu USA and South Africa’s top team Merrell Adventure Addicts. “It is always awesome to race on home soil and the South Coast provides the ideal terrain to stage a world class expedition race,” said Merrell’s captain, Graham Bird. “...It is a privilege to race the top teams in the world in South Africa,” he added.

May 2, 2014
UNENGOMA eyayivame ukudlalwa nguMnuz Welcome ‘Bhodloza’ Nzi mande emsakazweni wesiZulu uKhozi FM, enezinhlamvu ezithi: “Umbu lalelani omunye umuntu ngoba ngelinye ilanga uzomdinga?” Lo mbuzo awudingi ukutolikwa ngoba usobala njengezinqe zeselesele. Lesi silo mosakoMphephethesasidumengaman coko anongwe ngobukhulu ubuhlakani oKhozini FM uma sisakaza. Sashiya em sakazweni sesingumphathi sangena em abhizinisini. Sasivame ukuyidlala le ngo ma ngesikhathi kusabhidlange udlame kulesi sifundazwe iKwaZuluNatal. Nanamhlanjengisamkhumbulakahle uBhodloza uma esekhuza udlame ethi: “Hhayi bo bafana bakithi nabulalana kangakakwenzenjani?Yinileengakaeni yibangayo engeke ilungiswe ngomlomo? Wena nsizwa ophethe isikhali njengoba ngikhuluma nje, uyakhohlwa yini ukuthi lo muntu olindele ukumbulala udalwe nguNkulunkulu njengawe? Uzokwenze njani kusasa uma usubhekene nesimo la pho uzodinga khona usizo lwalomuntu ocuthele ukumjuqa?” kubuza lesi silomo sakoMphephethe.
Yini eyenza ngikhulume kanje ngoB hodloza? Isizathu ukuthi impilo yakhe ibe nomthelela omuhle, owakhayo em phakathini. Angivumelani kahle hle nala ba bantu abavame ukuthi uBhodloza wa zakhela udumo ngomculo kamasikandi emsakazweni. UBhodloza ubenguthisha ngaphambi kokusebenza emsakazweni. Ababefunda naye KwaDlangezwa High School, bathi wayevele eyisilomo kwas esikoleni, kanti nangesikhathi esefundisa wayengaconsi phansi kubafundi nakoza kwabo. Indaba kaBhodloza ibuye emqond weni ngilalele intshumayelo kaMfu Arm strong Makhanya waseUnited Congre gational Church ngePhasika. Uthe wonke umuntu kufanele azi ukuthi indlela aziphatha ngayo inomthelela kwabanye, kantikunjalonje,nendlelaabanyeabantu abaziphatha ngayo, inomthelela empil weni yakhe. “Ngakhoke,” kuqhuba uMfu Makhan ya, “kufanele sonke siqikelele ukuthi siziphathakahleukuzekusizakalenaban ye. Kukhona abaphila ngendlela elimaza abanye, kube khona nalabo abaphila ngendlela ebaphilisayo abanye. Veleke
impilo injalo, inezimo ezimbi nezinhle. Futhi ngeke siziqede izimo ezimbi. Ziy ohlale zikhona ziyizinselelo. Okubalule kile ukuthi sibe nobuchule nobuhlakani bokubhekana nazo sizinqobe.” Uthe neNkosi uJesu akazibalekelanga izinselelo, wabhekana nazo ngqo, wazin qoba esizwa nguNkulunkulu. Uthe akulo na iphutha ukuthi empilweni kube khona izimo ezinhle nezimbi. “Uma zonke izinto zihamba kahle em pilweniyakho,”kuqhubayena,“ubokwazi ukuthi kukhona okungalungile. Kanjalo futhi uma konke kungahambi kahle, ku suke kukhona okungalungile. Abanezim oto bayazi ukuthi ibattery lidinga u ‘posi tive nonegative’ ukuze libe namandla, likwazi ukuhambisa imoto.” Uthe kuzokhumbuleka ukuthi kwasekuqaleni impilo yoniwa ngumuntu oyedwa ensimini yaseEden, kodwa yabuye yalungiswa ngumuntu oyedwa, iNkosi uJesu. Yingakho ethi impilo yo muntu oyedwa inomthelela kwabanye abaningi. Ulinganise ngabantu okubhal we ngabo eBhayibhelini njengoAbra ham athe ukulalela kwakhe uNkulunkulu kwamenza wabusiswa kwaze kwabu
siswa nezingane zakhe nesizukulwane. Uqhubeke walinganisa nangoSawulu owayewuhlupho ebulala amakholwa kodwa ngokugcina elalele iZwi likaJesu ngesikhathi eshaywa ngumbani, laphen dulwa igama lakhe waba nguPawulu wase enza okuhle emphakathini okwa phendula izimpilo zabaningi. Ngaphandle kwalaba okukhu lunywa ngabo eBhayibhelini, uthe nalapha eNingizimu Afri ka, uNkulunkulu ulethe uM nuz Nelson Mandela ongase kho obe nomthelela omuh le ezimpilweni zabaningi, hhayi eNingizimu Afrika kuphela kodwa emhlabe ni wonke. Kanjalo nathi kulen gosi namhlanje sithi: “Uma sonke sin gaziphathangendlelaezoba nomthelela omuhle em phakathini,sihloniphane,anga bi khona obukela phansi omunye, izwe lingashintsha, libenokuthulanenqubekelap hambili.

THE first catch and release species competition hosted by the Port Edward Ski Boat Cluboverthelongweekendwas a resounding success according to organisers. Each boat that entered was tasked with catching and releasing 10 different species, five bottom fish and five game fish. A special ruler was supplied to all entrants to measure the fish before releasing them into the water. Species targeted were game fish, Couta, Yellowfin Tuna, Little Eastern Tuna (Bonito), Cape Yellowtail and Dorado and bottom species Yellowbelly Rockcod, Musselcracker (Poenskop), Englishman, Scotsman and Dagga Salmon. On the first day of the competition, 25 boats launched at Port Edward and eight at Shelley beach. The surf was up and the anglers were faced with a turbulent sea but good catches were reported and photo cards were brought to the tent by 4:30 in the afternoon. The weather improved on Saturday and the conditions were magnificent with entrants launching at 7:30am. Saturday afternoon saw five boats with five species each and two boats with six species. Into day three with two boats on six species, the weather was absolutely only for the brave hearted and only six boats took to the sea at Port Edward

and three at Shelley Beach. Knowing that the boat was anybody’s, those that were in the top mix fished extremely hard in torrid conditions, the photo cards had to be in the tent by 4:30pm. All but one boat, Chepy, were back by 4:00pm and there were seven species on the board with one boat, Loader, skippered by Mark Snyman, Paul Loomes and William Robertson in the lead. Prize-giving commenced with a jam packedtentandprizesweregivenoutfor the biggest of each species, followed by theprizesforthetopthreeboats.Thedorado proved rather elusive as nobody boated one.

>> Local team capitalizes on Ballito players’ weaknesses VUSI MTHALANE
N Saturday the Fidelity South Coast Warriors played the Ballito Dolphins and demolished them 78-7 at Douglas Mitchell sports grounds. The Warriors dominated the game from start to finish, giving no room to the visitors to plan any counters. First team coach Christo Henderson it was all thanks to
the hard work that went into preparing for the match. “The Ballito team was a little bit weak and we capitalized on those weak points,” said Henderson. The Warriors team seems to have gelled very well with good communication on the pitch. “Everyone is enjoying their game and that is important for a club that players do want to play," said Henderson. As the Warriors
continue on their remarkable winning streak, Henderson still feels there are areas that he needs to improve on as he prepares to face the Harlequins in their next game. “We will have a high focus on the forward play this week as Harlequins have a very strong pack and their game plan goes around it. We will also ensure that our defence structure is 100% and that everyone under-
stands our game plan in full," he said. The game will be played at the Harlequins turf and Henderson said he knows it is going to be the toughest game this season. Try scorers were Francois De Kock (2), Ben Oosthuizen (2), Dawie Durrheim, Chris Mitchell (2), Tienie Viljoen (2), Juandre Koekemoer, David van Zyl and Dylan Kroon. Kroon also scored 9 conversions.
