by the legendary Fox - a nine-time Roof of Africa winner - as a “phenomenon”, enters this year’s race inacompletelynewlight.Thistime around, he won’t have the element of surprise. Instead, he’ll have a target on his back, something the teenager is well aware of. “I know that I will be targeted but I’m just going to try to concentrate on what I do well and try to enjoy it.” Young has the same mature mentality regarding the added pressurethatcomeswithbeingthe defending champion. “There is always going to be pressure, espe-

cially when you are the defending champion, but I’m just focusing on my preparations.” Young recently solidified his standing as South Africa’s best enduro rider when he clinched the overall title for 2013 as well as the E2 (200cc) Championship title in the South African National Enduro Championship and has gained invaluable international experience this year, having competed in the Tough One, King of the Hill, Erzbergrodeo, Red Bull Romaniacs, International Six Days Enduro and Enduro World Championship races.

He believes this has helped him develop as a rider and is pleased with his preparation for the big race. “My schedule has gone according to plan. I have been to Lesotho twice to do training and have concentrated on my fitness. I have been doing a lot of spinning and swimming, so I’m feeling strong, both physically and mentally.” Other South Coast riders who will compete in the Roof of Africa include Blake and Jade Gutzeit, Bronson Louw, Kyle Flanagan, Tristan Roberts, Chayse Orsmond, RyanPretoriusandStuartGregory.

ADEYoungwilllooktodo the unthinkable for the second consecutive year when he initiates the defence of his Roof of Africa title in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho on Thursday, 14 November. The Paddock prodigy did the seemingly impossible last year when at just 16 years of age, he became the youngest ever winner of the gruelling three-day hard enduro. The victory left international stars like 2011 winner Graham Jarvis, Graham Jarvis and Andreas Lettenbichler shell-shocked and changed Young’s life. He became an international superstar, landed sponsorship deals with some of the biggest brands in the sport and was able to drop out of school (Creston College) at the end of 2012 to focus entirely on his racing career after winning a bet with his dad Nigel. Nigel agreed that should his son win the Roof of Africa, he won’t have to go back to school in 2013, and after a total race time of 17 hours 36 minutes and10seconds,Wadehadwonthe wager. “My career has grown immensely over the past 12 months,” Young told the Fever. “Last year’s win opened up lots of door for me nationally and internationally and got me a Red Bull sponsorship.” Young, for his trip to Lesotho, has alsoreceivedthesupportofCounty Ford Port Shepstone. “County Ford have kindly sponsored me a Ford Transit Sport to use for the Roof of Africa.

People with no ID turned away GINISILE NDOVELA

>>news1@feveronline.co.za VOTER registration proceeded peacefully on Saturday and Sunday in the Ugu district, but a number of the potential voters were turned away from the registration stations at Umkholombe because they did not have identity documents, which is a strict requirement when registering to vote in next year’s provincial and national elections. According to the ANC team outside Merlewood Secondary School on Monday, people were turned away because of this. One member confirmed on Sunday that about 50 potential voters were turned away. “We tried to find out from the people why they did not have identities. Some of them told us that their ID book was burnt when their shacks were gutted by fire some time ago and they have not had the opportunity of applying for a new one.” The Department of Home Affairs had been asked to help people apply at Umkholombe for their identity documents, said one ANC member, who was not authorised to speak to the media. The government encouraged residents to go to the local Department of Home Affairs offices and apply for an ID book, as apart from politicalreasons,theimportanceofvotingalso determines the budget for the area allocated.

HE construction of a modern, bigger, multimillon rand Ugu Disaster Management Centre started with a sodturning ceremony on Friday in Marburg extension 2.

She said phase two will be the storage and garages, while phase three will be the conference centre. “The first phase of the project has commenced and is expected to be completed by May 2014. A local

contractor was appointed for this project. Six temporary jobs have been created and locals are expected to be employed under this project,” said Gumede. The purpose of the centre is to respond to disasters effectively.

“This centre will serve all six localmunicipalitiesofUgu.Weknow that Eastern Cape people are on our borders, so we can’t let our people die because of disasters, when we have a disaster management centre here,” said Gumede.

Douglas murder investigation continues CANDYCE KRISHNA

THERE is still no word from the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) on the murder of Leanne Douglas, who was shot by police in an unmarked vehicle in Umkomaas on 15 September. The six police officers allegedly involved in the incident, however, are still at work and have not been charged.

Her mother Leonie Luckin says she will not let them get away with it. “AllIlivefornowisgettingtothe bottom of why police were shooting at my daughter on the freeway. It’s all I live for,” she said. Douglas owned a restaurant in PortShepstone—TheRedRooster — but the lease had come to an end around the time of her death. “Leanne had not renewed the lease before she died so the restaurant won’t be run by me, my family

or friends,” said Luckin. She said the IPID had not been in contact with her as she assumed they would be. “I called them to have my statement taken. I call them to find out about progress on the case,” she said. She added that the investigation seems to be at a stand-still. “There were other incidents whichIheardofonthenewswhere people were shot at by police for no reason,” she said.

A sweet treat on us!

“I cannot believe that they [police] think they have the right to attack people in gun fire,” added Luckin. She said this sort of police brutality has to stop or else it will only get worse. “Luckily the people who were shot at did not lose their lives, but it is still wrong.” Commenting on Leanne’s murder, IPID spokesperson Moses Dlamini said: “The investigation is ongoing,butatanadvancedstate.”

Marburg street a HAZARD >> ‘To have garbage close to eateries is even worse and poses a health hazard’ CANDYCE KRISHNA

Ajith Rajaram talks to one of the women who live under a billboard on Watterson Street, Mar­ burg. Another woman stands by while a man sleeps on the other side of the sign.

HE state of Watterson Street in Marburg has sparked concern for the Ward Councillor Ajith Rajaram. The road, which accommodates many businesses, is strewn with garbage bags that are sometimes not collected for weeks. An illegal mechanic operating across from a well-established car repair business and three homelesspeoplewholiveunderabillboard are also “residents” on the street. An established mechanic who has been in business there for more than 15 years said the illegal repairs have been going on for four years. Rajaram said he has brought these issues to the Hibiscus Coast Municipality’s attention on numerous occasions, but his pleas have fallen on deaf ears. The stench in the area is terrible, as refuse has started decomposing. “I have e-mailed time and time again, but have not even received acknowledgement of my e-mails,” he said. “To have garbage in front of businesses is not professional and to have garbage close to eateries is even worse and poses a health hazard,” he

said. Rajaram said he had reported the illegal car repair business to the protection services umpteen times, but nothing has been done about it. “One might argue that the vehicles being repaired could have broken down, but if you see the oil stains on the road and pavement and the car parts and boxes littering the sidewalk, it is safe to say that this is an illegal repair business,” he said. “It’s not fair to the mechanic who has been doing business for over 20 years,” he said. The three vagrants who live, sleep and cook under the billboard is also a major concern. Not only is it a health hazard to

He added that protection services officersusedtoregularlyissuefinesto truck drivers, but it had been ages since he last saw an officer. “This is because there are no patrols every day. Protection services appear maybe twice a year and issue fines. “The people then disappear and come back after a few months,” said another business owner. “Watterson Street is untidy and an eyesore. There are too many vagrants and people loiter in the area. This makes customers uneasy.” The Hibiscus Coast Municipality was approached for comment, but none was forthcoming at the time of going to press.

The Shelly Beach Lions Club will host a free health clinic at the Shelly Centre on Saturday 16 November from 8.30am. The clinic forms part of Diabetes Week, which incorporates World Diabetes Day on 14 November. The clinic includes free blood­sugar and blood pressure testing and dietary advice. Inviting the public to attend are (from left) Mark Brewitt, Clint Barclay, Paul Brauteseth and Harry Hoenselaar.

AVE Middleton’s attornery expressed his dissatisfaction at the state’s submission of a two-month remand at Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday. The 58-year-old superintendent of traffic for Hibiscus Coast Municipality was charged with one count of rape against a nine-year-old, double rape against a 13-year-old (orally and penetration), 10 counts of creating child pornography, possession of child pornography, two counts of sexual assault and intimidation. Bail was denied in September however, Middleton’s attorney Larry Seethal said papers have been lodged for an appeal at the High Court and that an outcome was “anticipated in

the next 10 days”. “At the last court case, the state said the investigation was almost complete with only forensic evidence outstanding. A nine-week remand was granted to get this in order. For the statetonowaskforaremanduntilnextJanuary is unacceptable,” said Seethal. Theaccusedshowedupinablacksuit,white shirt and tie, the same as what he wore to his court appearances prior to this. As he took the stand, someone in the gallery whispered, “he has lost weight”. StateprosecutorMuziwodumoMizasaidinvestigations on the first three counts have been finalised.

They said they were waiting for Gamalakhe social workers to assist them with their child grants, pen­ sion, foster care grants and disability grants, but said Sassa staff were nowhere to be seen. “We were told that we needed to come to the cen­ tre every Monday as social workers only go to the cen­ tre on Mondays, but now it is the fifth Monday and they have never arrived. When we go to Gamalakhe office, they send us back telling us that we have wast­ ed our money travelling to Gamalakhe because we are supposed to be helped at the Bhomela Centre. If we go to the Marburg office, they send us back to Gamalakhe and Gamalakhe sends us back the Bhomela Centre where no one comes to help us. “Now, we do not know what to do or which centre or office will help us. Even the ward councillor knows about our problem. He said he would phone Sassa, but he never did. The councillor has no time to help because he is a school teacher,” said a resident. Residents said they phoned the manager of the Gamalakhe social workers Mrs Lukhozi several times and she told them that their vehicles were broken. “OnoneMonday[whenwephoned],shesaidthey weredeliveringfoodtoschools,thenexttimeshesaid they were going to Pietermaritzburg. We can’t re­ member some of the reasons why they did not arrive, but they have not come for five consecutive Mondays, or for five weeks.” Ward Councillor Phiwokuhle Hlophe said he is aware of the challenges and has spoken to the social workers’ manager who said they were very busy as the MEC had sent them to other areas.

“We appreciate what the association has done for the children. Early childhood development is very important in a young person’s life,” said Woodhouse. The crèche caters for 60 children, 32 of whom are under the age of four. There is one teacher and numerous international volunteers who render their services to the school for six months at a time,” Woodhouse said. “The children will be very excited to have a bigger crèche.” Marcus Gonzalves, Correct chair-

man of the Master Builders’ Association South Coast said the project would not have been possible without contributions from members. “Renovations and additions had been done to the existing crèche which had become too small and outdated. The estimated cost amounts to R53 000,” said Gonzalves. He said the initiative was part of the association’s community upliftmentprojectsandthattwootherplaces had received assistance — The School for Children with Autism and Mcushwa Secondary School.

Doll ‘love’ house in Hospice raffle CANDYCE KRISHNA

>>news2@feveronline.co.za JENNY’s House is now on show at Ram­ sgate Stationers at Southcoast Mall. So what’s the connection to a station­ ery store? Well, it’s a doll house, intricately de­ signed and assembled and ready to be raf­ fled off for South Coast Hospice’s Tree of Light event on 7 December. “We have been privileged to receive an unbelievable doll’s house as a donation,” said Hospice media correspondent, Sonja Pye. The winner of Jenny’s House will be an­ nounced on December 24. Raffle tickets cost R5. The house comes in 125 parts and was donatedbyMartinandOdetteJames,from Gauteng, who opened up their hearts to Hospice in January. “Jenny’s House was started purely out of love,” said Pye. The James’ contacted Caryl Peatt, a lifelong and respected Hospice volunteer, and donated the doll’s house project to­

gether with 125 issues on how to construct the house to South Coast Hospice. “The James’ objective and only request to us was to have the house built to raise fundingforourannualTreeofLightevent,” said Pye. Jenny Dickson, who was very involved withHospiceworkofferedhertimetobuild the doll house. “Jenny had started an enormous project which requires skill, dedication and attention to detail. Every piece of furniture was carefully constructed and positioned intheinteriorofthehouse.Thisprojectwas

certainly not for the fainthearted,” said Pye. Unfortunately, Dickson was diagnosed with cancer and was unable to complete the project. She died on 25 June, leaving her hus­ band Graham behind. Dickson’s tutor, Dot Donaldson, then stepped in and offered to complete the project on Dickson’s behalf. Jenny’sHousewasreadyon10Septem­ ber. “The doll house is now aptly known as Jenny’s House, which is Jenny’s heart,” said Pye.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

Purpose of our paper fulfilled REPORTS in this week’s Fever serve the community by highlighting issues brought to our attention by them. In all cases this is a last resort when go­ ing to councillors, and even authorities has not worked, but by exposing situations in the press, situations are usually resolved. Read about the situation in Marburg where even ward councillor cannot get au­ thorities to take notice of an untenable sit­ uation, where promises by HCM have been broken, and he is now faced with a dilem­ ma. Coming to the press is his last hope that something may be done. The story of the South African Social Security Services (Sassa) not arriving for five consecutive weeks to give grants rang­ ing from child, pension, foster and disabili­ ty, is just a sheer lack of care and a disgrace. Again a ward councillor failed to solve the problem and the only avenue of poten­ tial help is the Fever, which can contact the communications officer of Sassa. Although this person was unavailable thisweek,ourreporterwillfindoutwhythis is happening. It is gratifying when a community newspaper can do what it is intended to do — help and serve the community.

Dear Fever, MY thanks and appreciation to the forum members who accompanied the SAPS and HCM Protection Services Officers in the Admiralty Reserve bush inspection. The attendance of our residents was not as good as we had hoped, but the numbers of SAPS members and reservists made up for it. There were six structures found in the bushes which indicates that people are living there, but nobody

was found. A lot of clothing, blankets and a big suitcase was found and taken to the police station. Protection services will try and issue the occupants with eviction notices which will give them a 14-day period to evacuate, after which the structures can be taken down. We are all anxiously waiting to see what will develop from our operation. Crime in general is still down

compared to previous months. The area just north of Uvongo beach (Foster Road and Uvongo Beach Road) is becoming a hot spot and holidaymakers, in particular, in this area must be warned. I stress the importance of reporting all incidents, even if considered minor. This is required when resources are allocated as preventative measures. Ernest Booysen Uvongo Crime Forum

Leave fireworks, concentrate on safety Dear Fever, IT seems that the subject of Diwali and loud bangs have really rallied the residents of Umtentweni. While I understand their concerns for this one night in the year that is obviously the cause for the wildlife leaving the area (and, of course, the cars and people have nothing to do with porcupines crossing roads), I sincerely hope that this energy will now be directed towards promoting safety in the area. Imagine if the amount of time, thought and effort that the Umtentweni Ratepayers’ Forum put behind this issue was invested in the safety and crime reduction of this neighbourhood. Imagine if our girls were actually able to walk to the shops without fear, or even if our elderly felt safe in their homes, what a positive effect we could have. Achieving something like this, one might say, would be a real victory and perhaps give us a worthy cause to focus on all year round. This would actually be the perfect opportunity to show inconsiderate neighbours how we really look after our own. Just a thought. Concerned Hindu resident Umtentweni

Dangerous road needs attention Dear Fever, FROM the T-junction of Wingate Avenue in Margate turning right towards Gamalakhe Town is an extremely dangerous road. The law enforcement on this road is absolutely non-existent and many people have been killed. Drivers are reckless and drive at speeds way above 60km/h, and nobody seems to care. Even though traffic department officers sit in non-dangerous zones and trap people going at 68km/h and make a lot of money. They make a lot of money out of these safer area, but what about the lives lost on this back road to Gamalakhe. Taxis using this road are allowed to do as they please and they get away with murder actually. There needs to be hectic, brake-stopping humps on this road urgently. Worried Margate

skenkings is daar verlede jaar meer as 8 500 speelgoed uitgedeel aan behoeftige kinders regoor die land en tot op datum het die veldtog reeds byna 137 000 speelgoed aan behoeftige kinders besorg. Vanaf Dinsdag, 15 Oktober tot Vrydag, 6 Desember kan bydraes gemaak word deur speelgoed te koop of te bring en dit in die Toy for Toy waentjies voor in alle

Checkers, Checkers Hyper en Shoprite winkels landwyd te plaas. Vir elke speelding wat deur die publiek geskenk word, sal Checkers en Shoprite ook iets bydra. Kom ons deel die vreugde van Kersfees hierdie jaar met andere en gee behoeftige kinders iets om oor te glimlag, deur te help om meer speelgoed as ooit in te samel. — Verskaf.

‘Sine qua non’ is must­criteria for all of us Dear Fever, LEADERSHIP must be knowledgeable and must understand the laws of social de­ velopment. The starting of social change is not in the ideas that society holds, but in the way society produces its goods or services. The relationship between government entities should always be underpinned by paradigm shift. Paradigm shift always means both faithfulness to the past and boldnesstoengagethefuture,bothtradition and transformation. In short is the struggle between the opposites, it is through this struggle that qualitative development takes place. Struggle is the essence of relationship between opposites. In society the struggle of opposites assumes the form of class strug­ gle. This is not dependent on the basic as­

sumptions and the best wishes and dreams of individuals, but it is science. And science is the apotheosis of intellect. TheroleofthealliancepartnersintheNa­ tional Democratic Revolution is different but complimentary. Cosatu, progressive civic or­ ganisations and SACP are there to strength­ en the ANC, in return the ANC has to support it. The ANC must continue to be a principled and leading force to build a non­racial and non­sexist society. Given its own revolution­ ary traditions and experiences, it is the only organisation (together with its allies) that is best capable to lead this project. None of the opposition parties, individually or com­ bined, have the traditions or capacity to lead building of such a society. The ANC has to combine both electoral

Stop unions Dear Fever, DO you not see what allowing unions to rule our country is doing to our country. Unions are making the people lose their jobs and most of strikes are not working in the companies they are striking for. We have proof they are just given T-shirts and a meal to strike. Be like Margaret Thatcher and save our country from financial ruin. Stop unions. Concerned Ramsgate

Dear Doctor Nash, I have been married to my husband for the past 20 years and we have three daughters, but he has never been faithful. He has had ongoing affairs with his staff and even with school girls. He does not allow me to confide in my parents or friends, and if I do he beats me. I left him once, in 2005/6, but went back to him and we planned and had another child. While I was pregnant he was drinking and came home late or not at all. If I questioned him he would hit me. I took out a restraining order but that is no longer in force. The doctors have told him that if he continues to drink the way he has he will die. He was in hospital again last month. I just do not know what to do. I do not think he will ever change and he does have several properties that he owns, if he drops dead I will have money, but to carry on living the way we are. I do not think that I can. What must I do doctor? You are well known for your straight advice, and I am scared. Just call me “Scared Wife”. Dear “Scared Wife”, You have said it. To have put up with the life you describe has taken a lot of stubbornness. What you need is the courage to take action. You must change from a donkey to a tiger. Difficult I know, but it can be done. You have an old restraining order which goes to show what he is, and his hospital record also will help you. Take him to court, divorce him and take him to the cleaners. He is not a husband you can be proud of and neither is he a father your daughters can be proud of, so at least show them that when it is necessary you can show courage and determination. They also need to learn the boundaries, and when to say enough is enough. You can be a powerful model, as is your husband, so make sure that you at least walk the path of courage and love, and give them a model they can be proud to follow. Courage.

Nkonyeni said it is important for ward councillors to deliver and respond to the needs of the community as this will help the government get more support from the community. Accompanying her were ward councillors who responded to questions from the community on local government service delivery issues. “Councillors, you must give communities feedback on the issues they asked about during the mayoral imbizos. It is important to report constantly to the community on whether what they asked for will be delivered in this financial year or the next financial year. This helps the communitytoknowthatthegovernmentisconsidering what they asked for,” said Nkonyeni.

A satisfied SCBA chairman Manus Eras­ mus said: “The event was attended with en­ thusiasm and about 25 bass over 1.5 kg were caught. In fact, more large bass were weighed than small ones. The weather was fantastic, idealforfishing,andwehadabout30%more entries than last year. The anglers commend­ ed Beaver Creek farm and awarded them as the best kept dam in the competition. They were even served with coffee courtesy of Bea­ ver Creek.”

Kunabantu abadala abahlale befaka umoya wokungavoti ngoba bengagculiswa yindlela uhulumeni oshaya ngolonwabu ngayo ekuhlangabezaneni nezidingo zomphakathi. Kulula nje ukuthi umuntu athi: “I-African National Congress (ANC) ngeke iphinde ilithole elami ivoti ngoba ayingenzeli lutho.” Ake sikuzibe kancane okwamanje ukuthi uhulumeni oholwa yi-ANC

LIBATION RITES AHEAD of the wedding, the couple would traditionally chant a prayer to their ancestors before blessed water or alcohol on the ground. TWELVE SYMBOLS: Twelve symbols are present during a South African wedding, and represent what the couple should expect and will be will­ ing to endure during marriage. The 12 symbols are salt, pepper, wheat, wine, bitter herbs, a holy book (such as the Qu’ran or Bible), a broom, honey, a spoon, a spear, a shield and a pot. TYING THE KNOT As well as exchanging rings, African tradition sees the couple have their wrists tied together by grass or ma­ terial. DEDICATION PRAYER

Similar to the Catholic tradition, the couple light a candle to­ gether following their vows. LOBOLA A dowry payment made by the groom, to the family of the bride to pay for her hand in marriage. At one point the pay­ ment was in the form of cattle, although now when it is still used, cash is more common. KARAMU Also known as the wedding feast, this is the post marriage cer­ emony celebration. WEDDING CAR The father of the bride would traditionally tie a shoe to the back of the wedding car. This symbolises him passing the re­ sponsibility of his daughter on to the groom. ZULU WEDDING TRADITIONS A bride at a traditional Zulu wedding can change her outfit up to three times throughout the course of the day, as a way of impressing her new in­laws. She would also wear a traditional red headdress which would have at one time been made from her mother’s hair. Following the marriage ceremony, the wedding party would head to the groom’s home where a cow is slaughtered. This symbolises that the bride is welcome in her new home, and she becomes a member of her new family when she puts money in the cow’s stomach. After the wedding the bride gives out blankets to her new family, in a ceremo­ ny that is known as ukwaba. LIGHTING THE FIRE The parents of the bride and groom light fires in their homes then carry some of that fire to the newly­weds house in order to light their fire.

Worldwide wedding traditions >> A common wedding tradition used across the world, this poem — something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, silver sixpence in her shoe — represents many traditional ways to bring luck and fortune on your wedding day SOMETHING OLD The use of something old symbolises the bride’s past and her life with her family before she joins a new one. Taking something old on her wedding past means she can bring her past forward with her. SOMETHING NEW Usually the wedding dress, something new repre­ sents the new future and life the bride is facing. SOMETHING BORROWED Traditionally the something borrowed would be loaned by a happily married woman and lend some of her luck to the bride. SOMETHING BLUE The colour blue is traditionally thought to repre­ sent love and fidelity, so the bride should have something blue to ensure she gets this. A SILVER SIXPENCE IN HER SHOE A lesser known part of the rhyme nowadays, the bride would traditionally put a sixpence in her shoe to represent prosperity and wealth. BRIDESMAIDS Bridesmaids were originally used as decoy brides! It was thought that evil spirits may sabotage the newlyweds’ happiness, so having bridesmaid’s dresses similarly and standing next to the bride, the spirits would be confused. THROWING CONFETTI Traditionally grain and rice were thrown over the newlyweds in a bid to encourage fertility, but this is now replaced with confetti or dried flower pet­ als for a pretty effect. BEING CARRIED OVER THE THRESHOLD The groom should carry the bride over the threshold of their home following the wedding as this was the traditional way to ward off spirits and bad luck – if the bride trips on the way in, she will have bad luck! WEDDING CAKE A wedding cake is thought to have traditionally symbolised fertility and children. At one point it was crumbled over the couple’s heads, but now they cut it together and feed it to each other. — www.hitched.co.za

Throwing the bouquet originated in medieval Europe, when women tore pieces off the bride’s wedding dress, and to distract them, a bouquet was thrown. PHOTO: SOURCED

A Notary is required to execute Antenuptial Contracts. The Notary must be fully conversant with all aspects of matrimonial property law and relevant legislation governing it. We will give you the best advice to ensure this step in estate planning is a proper step. Failure to execute an Antenuptial Contract before the wedding will result in a marriage in Community of Property, which could have dire consequences for you. Take this first step properly and consult us for expert advice.

Becoming a mechanical engineer >> Mechanical engineers will find their skills in demand in a variety of fields

A

MECHANICAL engineer is a per­ son trained to design and con­ struct machines. Mechanical engineers will find their skills in demand in a variety of fields. If a device requires movement or manu­ facturing, design, testing, or packaging, a mechanical engineer will most likely be involved. Tips to help you if your interest lies in becoming an mechanical en­ gineer • Study mathematics, science, and com­ puter in high school. Physics and calcu­ lus are the back bones of engineering courses and certain types of engineering will require knowledge of computer pro­ gramming. • Participate in math contests and sci­ ence fairs. Try engineering contests if they are active in your area. • Develop hobbies related to mechanical engineering. These may include astrono­ my, rocketry, geology, auto mechanics, bicycle repair, welding or even robotics. • Learn to use different sorts of tools. Hammers and screwdrivers are a great place to start, but there are many more tools. If you have the opportunity to take a wood, metals, or plastics shop class, do so. • Take stuff apart. Ask friends and fami­ ly to give you appliances or other ma­ chines that have broken and try to take them apart and fix, or at least see how they are designed. • Explore the field of electronics, which may include activities such as ham radio and computer repair. Although electron­

Engineering builds creativity. PHOTO: SOURCED

• Take drafting classes. Even though some engineering schools do not offer drafting classes, drafting classes may be available at the high school or commu­ nity college level. If at all possible, learn a compu­ ter­aided draft­ ing program or MUNSTER two. LET US SECURE YOUR PROPERTY!

ics are more closely associated with elec­ trical engineering, mechanical engineers need, at the very least, to be able to communicate with electrical engineers.

• Develop solid written communication skills. Documentation and technical writing skills are a must in many me­ chanical engineering jobs • Invent something. It doesn’t have to be the next light bulb, or even a new idea. It could be something as simple as a bent wire coat hanger to dislodge something. • Take an interest in manufacturing.

Where do things come from or how were they created. • Develop your creativity, too. Although a lot of mechanical engineering is about being systematic and analytical, it is al­ so about creative problem solving. • Get a university degree. Those without degrees or state certification may work as mechanical designers or drafters, rather than as engineers. — Sourced.

Increasingly, measures are being implemented to enforce legislation on health and safety. PHOTO: SOURCED

G

LOBALLY, the construction industry has a rela­ tively poor health and safety record and South Africa is no exception. The South African con­ struction industry contributes a disproportionate number of fatalities and injuries relative to other indus­ trial sectors. The drive to reduce poor health and safety performanceislargelydriventhroughlegislation,which plays a key role in motivating contractors to implement practical measures to comply with health and safety requirements. Compliance requirements can protect your em­ ployees and keep you within the law. Increasingly, measures are being implemented to enforce legisla­ tion on health and safety. As a business you have a legal and social responsibility regarding the occupa­ tional health and safety of your personnel. Sound oc­ cupational health and safety management is neces­ sarybecauseofhazardsandrisksthatmayhaveadet­ rimental effect on personnel in their workplace.

FEVER 12 ON Oribi is a new north Indian cuisine restaurant and take­away that opened in Oribi Plaza last Friday. Run by Amith and Ishara Harrisawak and sis­ ter Ashnee Bridglall, they were looking to open a modern restaurant. “We want to give people a ‘fine dining’ experience, with modern and fresh meals,” says Ishara. With a selection of curries, bunny chow, roti and sweetmeats, 12 on Oribi aims to bring the delicacies of India to our doorstep. “Our speciali­ ties are our roti, bunny chow and curry and rice,” says Ishara For those who prefer a Westernised meal, 12 on Oribi also offers seafood, burgers, sandwiches and cakes. “People can’t stop raving about our burgers, they are homemade and the options are lamb or beef,” says Ishara. “Not many people know what a Bombay Crush is, but it is so refreshing and peo­ ple keep coming back for more,” says Ishara. 12 on Oribi also has a take­away option and will be looking into doing de­ liveries next year. MAIN: Quarter bunny, available in lamb, chicken, beans, prawn and chicken and lamb kebabs. INSET: Lamb curry is just one of the options at 12 on Oribi.

elsewhere. What worries us in this sub-region is the rate of arrest and convictions in these crimes and the willingness of the courts to give perpetrators bail as low as R1 000. “We have noted the failure of the Vulamehlo magistrate to properly prosecute offenders. As ANC in this sub-region,webelievethatjusticede-

layedisjusticedenied.AstheANC,we have noted the failure of Dududu SAPS to adequately investigate crimes and the lack of communication with witnesses, victims and investigating officer,” said Ngcobo. Ngcobo added they demand the urgent investigation into the cause of death of the child.

“We demand protection of women and children in this sub-region. We demand that the accused be removed in Bhewula. Police must reduce cases of rape by seven percent per annum and reduce domestic violence and start to prioritise all gender-based crimes,” said Ngcobo. He pointed out that the magistrate must increase conviction rates by 10% a year for women and children abusers. “The court must not grant them bail as they rape and kill children. When out on bail, they threaten and kill witnesses, so prosecutors must oppose bail to protect the women and children,” said Ngcobo.

‘Justice delayed is AST Friday the Vulamehlo community of Ward 6 handed over alistofcomplaintstoVulamehlo Magistrate Sam Dubazane and the Dududu SAPS station commander Gilbert Chiliza, demanding that the police and the court work together to find a man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, accused of raping three children, and asking that the court find him guilty and sentence him. They also asked the court not to give the suspect bail. The ANC regional executive committee member Sizwe Ngcobo read out their list of complaints. The community comprised ANC and NFP members who said they don’t need a serial rapist in the community.

OUTH Coast swimmers revelled in the recent Blue Ocean Aquatics (BOA) Spring Splash Gala and Lake Eland Mile. The participation in the annual BOA gala was in line with last year’s 106 entries and saw a large growth in the six and under girls’ event. The racing was awesome with some nail-biting finishes and great sportsmanship moments in and out of the pool. The club hosted 76 races and awarded points for places in each race. “What a great gala to have at the beginning of the swim season,” said BOA coach Mandy Koegelenberg. “This gala is for all the swimmers who have been working hard all winter to see how they have improved over the winter season and for those swimmers getting back into the water to see what their goals need to be for the season coming up,” she explained. Swimmers from @Swim - coached by Elna Wessels - won six gold medals, two silver medals and six bronze medals, while Leith Hair was the overall Under-7 boys’ winner. Swimmers from ‘Cuda Swim School in Port Edwardalsoexcelled,withJDHattingbreaking the breaststroke record and finishing second in freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and individual medley.

HE Southern KwaZulu-Natal XI recordedtheirfirsteverwininthe50-OverPremier League when they toppled front runners Topham by 33 runs at Port Shepstone Country Club on Sunday. Batting first, Southern KwaZulu-Natal struggled up front in the face of aggressive fast bowling from the Topham openers. Ashley Lombard and Gareth Bishop scored 35 runs each and Grant Small chipped in with 28 runs as Southern KwaZulu-Natal posted a moderate 157 all out. Defending a low score, Southern KwaZuluNatal put in a mammoth effort in the field; the bowlers doing a brilliant job of containing the Topham top order batsmen and restricting the runs. With the pressure mounting and the run rate climbing, the wickets started tumbling and Topham were ultimately all out for 124. Gareth Bishop was the star, boasting outstanding figures of five for 35 in 10 overs, Raja Kazi took three for 17 in 10 overs and Eugene Naude took one for just nine runs in 10 overs. Gareth, along with his cousin Morné Bishop, have been selected for the Dolphins Under-23 sidefortheSouthAfricanUnder-23cricketfestival in Potchefstroom. Meanwhile, with only two rounds remaining until the semi-finals, the Southern Natal Clubs Cricket Twenty20 tournament is wide open with only two points separating the top four teams. With the school exams in progress, mostclubsbattledto get teams together and as a result, only one fixture was completed this weekend as the Douglas Mitchell Tigers played host to the Value Fencing Southern Eagles. The hosts batted first and posted 152 with Anton Potgieter top-scoring with 49 runs off 21 balls. The Eagles struggled and fell 47 runs short in what was their third loss of the season. Following the win, the Tigers find themselves at the top of the log with Sezela in second place. The Eagles, meanwhile, languish in lowly seventh place.

HE Southern KwaZulu­Natal Rugby Sub­Union recognised the outstanding performers of the year at their annual awards evening held at Brackenmoor Estate in Uvongo on Friday. The sub­union enjoyed their most successful sea­ son in history as the senior and Under­21 teams se­ cured their first ever Inter Sub­Union titles in August. TheseniorsideedgedDurban22­20tocapturethe Ebbo Bastard trophy while the Under­21s pipped Dur­ ban20­15towinthePhilipNeltrophyintherespective finals played at Kings Park. “We had a fantastic season, the best ever,” South­ ern KwaZulu­Natal Rugby Sub­Union president Dougie Haralambous told the Fever. “There were a lot of firsts for us, with the seniors and Under­21s claiming historic wins and Makhanda High School being crowned the best school. “We also had a lot of players who were selected for the Wildebeest XV, who won their first SARU Southern Sub­Union title, and the country districts teamthatwenttoFrance.Tobepartofsuchahistory­ making year is special for everyone involved.”

Haralambous added that the sub­union’s spon­ sorship deals with Tiago’s and Riversmead Poultry Farms have been renewed for another year. “At this day and age it’s hard to get sponsors, so we thank them for their continuous support.” KwaZulu­Natal Rugby Union president Graham MacKenzie commended the sub­union’s committee, management and players on their heroics and said theythoroughlydeservedtoberecognisedasthebest sub­union in the province. The Senior Player of the Year award went to Ka­ paailand ace Jason Kashula, while Fidelity Security South Coast Warriors star James Fourie was acknowl­ edged as the Under­21 Player of the Year and Scott­ burgh won the Club of the Year award. Fourie’s achievement is particularly impressive given that he made an unusual switch from outside centre to lock this season. “It’s such a great feeling to know that I was even takennoteofatall,especiallybecausemyseasonwas cut short due to a shoulder injury I suffered in our club final,” a surprised Fourie said. “It was such a great season as a whole. Moving from the backline to the forwards was tough but to­ tally worth it. I enjoy the physical side of the game and felt I performed better at lock where I was more involved.” For Fourie, however, the team’s title triumph su­ perseded his personal accolade. “The title we won as a team means much more to me simply because of how far we’ve come as a group. “It’s easier for a single player to stand out in a sea­ son,butthefactthatbothmyselfandthewholeteam were recognised means a whole lot more to me. “I would not have won this award if it weren’t for the whole squad so a huge thank you to the coaching staff, my teammates and the supporters.”
