HE Trafalgar Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association have been working hard to make the area safer for all who live in it. André Janse van Rensburg, who heads the security portfolio, says the association has taken the responsibility of establishing a satellite police station to make it easier for residents to report crimes. “His dedication and that of the officer in charge of this area, Constable Comfort Mlambo, has led them to do something about the safety of

Trafalgar’s residents,” said secretary Lydia Jacobs. The satellite police station is situated in the middle of Trafalgar and it has become necessary for a policing forum to be established. A direct phonelinetothestationwillbe connected. A monthly fee of R50 per owner, or resident of Trafagar, is required to cover operational costs. “The support from the community has been tremendous,” said Jacobs. Earlier this year donations from ratepayers and residents made it possible to acquire a quad bike for patrols. “Thereafter three more

Bail denied to traffic head

‘Fever’ sports editor is KZN’s best

David Middleton turns his back to the camera before hearing judgment on his bail application last Thursday.


>> BAIL was denied to David Middleton (58), who is in the dock for numerous sexual offences on minors aged nine and 13. He made a brief appearance at Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court last Thursday before magistrate Piet Coetze. The superintendent of traffic was neatly dressed in a black suit and gazed into the gallery behind him before taking the accused box. “The court has to take into consideration that the accused knows where the children live and that he allegedly tried to influence one of them over the telephone,” said Coetze. He said the charges brought before Middleton were serious and involved children. “There has been an outcry from the public to stop abuse against minors. The investigating officer has told the court that the evidence against the accused is strong,” he said. State prosecutor Colin Molebatsi requested a three-month postponement, but Middleton’s attorney Larry Seethal felt that a six-week postponement


‘Fever’ sports editor Quintin van Jaarsveld (middle) receives the KwaZulu-Natal Sports Journalist of the Year award from Alberts Breed (left, ME for Vodacom KwaZulu-Natal), and Patricia McCracken (member of the judging panel).

South Coast Fever editor, Elaine King, expressed her absolute delight and pride on behalf of herself and Van Jaarsveld’s colleagues. “Quintin writes sport for South Coast, Upper Coast and the East Griqualand Fever publications, and sometimes for other publications in the group. He is awesome in bringing sport news not only to avid sport lovers, but he makes sport ‘come alive’. “Quintin’s attitude is an example to all of us. He is always enthusiastic, always positive and we can learn from his approach to life.”

was ample. “The state has said that investigations are complete. Evidence from my client’s computer is still outstanding, but that shouldn’t take more than six weeks to obtain,” he said. Middelton’s life partner and two of his employees from his private businesses were in court. After hearing that bail was denied, his partner burst into tears and had to be comforted outside the court by one of Middleton’s staff. Middleton handed himself over to Margate SAPS on Monday, 9 September and was charged with rape, sexual assault, possession of child pornography, creating child pornography and intimidation. The case was postponed to 13 November when a trail date will be set.

EVER’ sports editor Quintin van Jaarsveld was named KwaZulu-Natal Sports Journalist of the Year at the Vodacom Journalist of the Year Regional Awards at the Protea Hotel in Umhlanga Ridge, Durban last Wednesday evening. A total of 832 entries were received in the 12 categories, with Van Jaarsveld winning the sport category for his gripping tribute to late, great South African mountain biking legend Burry Stander (Umtentweni), his standing in the South Coast community and how his tragic death in January affected the South Coast community. “I feel incredibly blessed to win this award. To be regarded by your peers as the best in the province is very humbling. I’ve been extremely blessed in my career and I give all the glory to God for giving me the talent, ability and opportunities I’ve received,” said Van Jaarsveld. The 30-year-old, who won the runner-up award in the Local Newspapers Journalist of the Year category at the Media24 Legends Awards in May and was the only sports journalist to be acknowledged at last year’s Media24 Legends Awards, also took home R5 000 and will travel to Johannesburg for the national finals on 1 November.

‘Explain my child’s death’ >> ‘Whether a bullet killed her or not does not matter. The police chase led to her death’ CANDYCE KRISHNA



PRIVATE investigator has been hired to find further information about the death of her daughter Leanne Douglas (45), who was killed in a police car chase on 15 September. Douglas’s mother Leonie Luckin confirmed this to the Fever on Monday and said she is still searching for answers. The restaurateur, who had lived in Southport for a year, died in an accident near Umkomaas after being chased and shot at by police. They

then allegedly tried to conceal the shooting and only reported the accident. Luckin was the last person to speak to Douglas who confirmed in two phone calls that police were chasing her. She also told her mother “they are trying to kill me” during a second conversation. Luckin believes her daughter was murdered and police are responsible for her death. “Whether a bullet killed her or not does not matter. The police chase led to her death,” said Luckin. She said she is still waiting for a post-mortem report, but was told by

the police that there were no bullet wounds in her daughter’s body.

“I want to see that report for myself. Right now I cannot trust the police,” she said. In a statement released by Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) there were apparently three vehicles chasing after her because she had allegedly been driving recklessly. One was an unmarked white Golf. “Evenifshewasdrivingrecklessly, they did not have to shoot at her. As much as this hurts, I will carry on looking for answers. There must be some retribution for Leanne,” she said. The IPID spokesperson Moses

Dlamini said an investigation has been launched. “It is alleged that the policemen reported just the accident and concealed the fact that they had shot at the victim’s vehicle. When the vehicle was towed away, the station commander noticed bullet holes in thevehicleandhecalledthe[policeofficers] suspects and tried to get clarity — they could not give a reasonable explanation for the shooting. The station commander informed the IPID,” he said. A docket of murder and defeating the ends of justice has been opened. The investigation continues. No arrests have been made.

Dear Fever, WHEN I read last week’s Fever and the letters from the ANC comrades slating DaveSnashall,Ibegthequestionofthepolitical favouritism of Fever and News24. Why was there not one letter published in support of Snashall’s opinions? Nair’squote:“Itisaprovenfactthatthe ANC leadership enjoys an unparalleled track record in service delivery,” is nothing short of utter trash. I trust the Fever will quickly correct the ANC-biased perception of its readers for its own benefit. I will be forwarding this letter to your rival publication and social networks. Non-DA Ramsgate • Editor’s comment: There was no bias there on the part of the Fever, which has no political affiliation or preference.

THE Port Shepstone beachfront hosted Heritage Day celebrations. This is a welcome change after recent news about the HCM head of protection services being detained on sickening charges, a well-known South Coast woman being shot by police and a child getting shocked by an Eskom power facility that was probably neglected, which have all made depressing reading.

Ruthless dog breeding causes dogs to suffer untold agony Dear Fever, CLAUDIA Sherrin’s letter about unscrupulous dog breeders needs endorsement. Unscrupulous breeding of unscreened dogs results in an increasing number with orthopaedic or other inherited disorders. Many of these painful conditions interfere with their natural temperament. Some cases of aggression are responses to pain. For instance, large dogs are prone to conditions such as hip dysplasia which can be extremely painful. Unfortunately, a stigma becomes

attached to certain breeds that, to a large extent, is attributable to dogs beingtakenintounsuitablehomeenvironments or to the absence of training or to poor training. Well-bred Great Danes are not fighters, but reliable and stable dogs that will stand their ground if forced to. They are good watch dogs and are devoted to their loved ones. A humane training programme is essential because of their size and physical power and their mentally sensitive make-up. Harsh training methods can lead to a build up of suppressed

frustration, which may then be released in an aggressive outburst. ThesamecanbesaidofBoerboels which have been successfully bred to defend their homesteads. They are loyal dogs protective of their family and territory and will not hesitate to defend these. They are intelligent and obedient people-loving dogs and thrive under positive training methods, human companionship and structure. Verbal control, not physical force, is the way to control these dogs. Early socialisation for both breeds is essential. Structured training should be

kept up until the dog is at least two years old. Positive training methods will earn these dogs’ innate will to love, trustandrespectyou.Negativetraining methods or harsh treatment will result in an accumulation of fear, distrust and increasing resentment. Taking a large dog into your home involves the responsibility from the owner to nurture its positive nature. So often they are left languishing in the backyard as unstimulated, unattended guard dogs.

Frustrating, I have to wash in one litre of water Dear Fever, I AM a concerned resident of Gamalakhe. I returned to Gamalakheafter10yearsandI’mconcerned and livid over the pathetic supply of water.

I am a student and every morning when I go to school there is no water. I wake up at 5am every day and have to wash myself in one litre of water. This is painful as I work and study in the healthcare sector as a student

nurse. I nurse members of the community, but end up contaminating my family due to an inadequate water supply. I am frustrated as this is the second week that we do not have a

consistent supply of hot water. This isnotbecauseourgeyserisfaulty,but because we don’t have a supply of water filling it. Samke Cebisa Gamalakhe

defends letter claims

Dear Fever, I WAS delighted to read the three separate letters intheFeverlastweekwritteninresponsetomyletters published on 6 and 13 September, and request that I may be allowed to respond to all three. Turning first to the one by Cllr Maphumulo who writes about the letter in which I stated that Deputy Mayor Johnny de Wet was making similar promises about houses for the people of Masinenge just before an election some eight years ago, as Mayor Cynthia Mquebu is now making. The houses, he claimed, wouldbebuiltshortlyaftertheelections.Intheevent, all they got was a run of crusher sand on a particularly bad internal road, and the partial leveling of a piece of ground for soccer, upon which further shacks were erected anyway. In his letter Cllr Maphumulo makes no attempt to deny these facts. Instead he tries to take his readers up a number of blind alleys like the UN millennium development goals, and housing projects like Mkholombe and Louisiana on which he tries to piggyback Masinenge which was, after all, the sole topic of my letter. Perish the thought, he says, that the ANC has any sharp weapons in its election armoury like handing outtitledeedsbeforeelections.ThefactthattheANC enrolled the assistance of President Jacob Zuma and the General Secretary Gwede Mantashe in the local elections in Tlokwe (Potchefstroom) last week as well as distributing 1 000 title deeds the day before the election had nothing to do with vote catching. I have no expertise in civil engineering, but I would think that before you can build new houses you would need Eskom connections, surveyed and serviced stands, and massive water and sanitation infrastructure as well as roads. This is why I said in my letter that the ANC might still be making dubious promises to Masinenge voters in 2016, let alone 2014. Moving on to the letter from Selvan Chetty, I have never claimed that I served on the Water and Sanitation Portfolio Committee for 10 years. I simply stated thattheDAservedonboththeFinanceandCoreBusinessPortfolioCommitteeofWaterandSanitationfor 10 years before it was expelled for throwing light into dark places. Advocate Chris Human SC was the DA representative on the Water and Sanitation Committee and his sage and well considered opinions and advice as well as his active participation in committee work were largely ignored or minimised by a hostile ANC and fellow travellers’ majority. Human made it his business to personally visit the site of treatment plants, pump stations, dams and rivers, and did not rely on disinformation peddled at portfolio committee meetings. Not a single one of Ugu’s 18 waste water treatment plants discharged an effluent into rivers that meets the minimum purity standards of DWAF. I am confident that members of public will realise that one councillor, as capable of


hemaybe,winsfewargumentswithanindoctrinated ANC caucus. Let me assure Mr Chetty that no councillor gains norlosesanymoneybyjoiningorleavinganyportfolio committee. All councillors are paid the same rate as provided for in the Government Gazette. The point IwasmakingwasthattheANCdoesnotwantopposition parties or the public to know too much about what is going on in finance or water and sanitation especially when it is bad news, and recently there has been lots of it. It is strange that Mr. Chetty claims that the Ugu district is seeing the benefits of the recovery plan. In point of fact the Auditor General has informed Ugu that it is not even doing the things it had undertaken to do in response to the management letter following the submission of the Annual Report for 2012/2013. Heinformedthedistrictcouncilthatsomanymatters were qualified that it was likely that Ugu will receive a qualified (bad) report from him. Fraudandcorruptioncontinuesunabated,andselected staff members are being paid up to R27 000 or R28 000 a month for overtime. The overtime budget for the first month of the new financial year is already R900 000 overspent. Turning to the letter from my old enemy (and friend), Ronnie Nair, who writes under the heading “Leadership will remain focused on delivery”. Like Cllr Mathumulo’s letter he seeks to muddy the water, and change the subject by talking about Kwanzimakwe, Merlewood, Marburg and Albersville rather than Masinenge, which was the subject of my letters. In fact the leadership has done very little for Masinenge in recent years while it was the DA which keptsharpfocusontheinformalsettlementwithover 300 visits to the area to assist residents on a regular weekly basis, and over the years nobody got a cellphone or opened a bank account without the personal weekly service provided by the DA. Both Ugu and Hibiscus Coast municipalities were kept up to date with residents’ requirements through the submission of the minutes of the monthly ward committee meetings which set out what was needed at Masinenge. Three years ago the ward committee, consisting of all parties, unanimously supported and promoted the proposal to the DFA tribunal to fast-track the housing in Masinenge. The project remained a fixed item on every agenda of every meeting. Instead of bathing in self-inflicted vainglory the leadership of the ANC in this area should acknowledgetheroleplayedbytheotherpartieswhichprosecuted this housing project with dedication, energy and drive over the years. If the leadership that Councillor Nair writes about is so focused on delivery why has nothing of any real substance happened at Masinenge since 1994. Dave Snashall DA Councillor Ugu District Council

Surely after four unsuccessful attempts it evidently has not learnt its lesson and how much is it going to waste in setting it up again. The businesses and ratepayers are at the losing end.

Iwillneverunderstandtheexact history of South Africa (as I’m not South African), but I sense some bias in the general comments regarding this case. A few weeks back (I can’t remember if it was in the papers or on radio) there was a report about an elderly woman who was raped and by default, some people

assumed the rapist was African even though there was no mention oftheraceoftherapistinthereport.

Coastal R102 road, a killing field Dear Fever, IT was not long ago that Fields Hill was in the news due to the horrendous accident which killed more than 20 people. No doubt that awful road has been the scene of several accidents, and some rather nasty. We have almost a similar road on the coast, along the R102, which has also been the scene of horrible accidents that could have been avoided if traffic authorities stop once and for all the use of the R102 for trucks and buses.

Drivers want to pocket the toll fees, but will claim them later from their bosses. A proposal has been put to the KZN National Road committee not to allow trucks to travel down Fields Hill. At the same this should have been done for the R102 between Hibberdene and Port Shepstone. Originally the R102 was built to serve the coastal areas, but I don’t know why traffic was divertedtotheR102whilethehighway was under repair. This diversion was a monu-

mental mistake made by the traffic authorities and has to be rectified immediately. The movement of trucks is on the increase and we coastal residents will have to pay with our lives soon. The R102’s condition is becoming worse due to these overloaded trucks, and the road is obviously not being repaired. This situation has to be brought to the attention of the KZN provincial roads department for its immediate attention. Jose M. Fonseca Woodgrange-on-Sea

Granny’s surprise

Dear Doctor Nash, I am not very good at relationships. I am now married for the second timeandinthatmarriageherfamilygaveme a job and managed my finances. The job failed and I went back to my trade. Then divorce, no car, no job, no money, no wife. Now I have found someone with incredible love, but I do not feel that way. She wants a ring and marriage and I feel claustrophobic and scared. I do not feel comfortable in a fixed relationship. I love parties, dancing and going out and she does not. I do not want to consider the other — sleep, eat, etc. routine. I am trying to understand this feeling inside of me and why I have it with this incredible love that my current partner gives me. What do I do? Where do I go in this relationship or do I just give it up and look for someone new? I am looking. “The Seeker”. Dear “Seeker”, Frankly I think that you

need to get over yourself. I know this sounds hard, but look at the results of this feeling of yours. One divorce and another break-up looming, and you describe the current lady as having “incredible love” for you. You do not find that sort of love easily, and if you cannot reciprocate, okay, but be honest and gentle. From your letter it seems as though you may have a problem with trust, and also a problem in being prepared to give in a relationship. Marriage is a two way, give and take relationship and when one partner is unable, or unwilling to bear his/her part, then it is not going to work. You say you are happy on your own doing your own thing, then why get involved in a close relationship? Is it that you are not happy on your own, but are not ready to be a full partner? If so recognise it, and stop pretending. Be honest. Much better.

Hubby gives great sex only when stoned Dear Doctor Nash, I have a problem, either I get great sex with my husband, but then he has to be on weed, or he has premature ejaculation and it is all over within two minutes. That is since he gave up on weed and took to drinking wine. I know he should not be smoking, but he enjoys it and there is a greatbenefit.Alsoitischeaper.Hedoeshave a habit of addiction, and of course the one is illegal and the other is not. But for me I do enjoy sex and I want it. His wine intake has gone up considerably over the past month since he stopped smoking weed, and it is costing us. I do not like sleeping with an impotent, drunk man. I know what I want, and there are friends who can help me, but what do you suggest Doctor? “Frustrated Wife”.

Dear Frustrated Wife, You are indeed in a difficult situation, and you put me in one too. You know that I cannot recommend that your man goes on to dagga, although I think there may be a case where a medical doctor may possibly be able to prescribe it. But I am unsure of that. Other than that, you have describedyourhusbandasanaddict,andifyou are correct he is in danger of becoming addicted to either dagga or alcohol, and this will not be good for either of you. Is great sex worththeprice?Ireallythinkyouneedsome competent medical advice and then some marriage therapy directed to the problems, that is, both your man’s and your own desires.Iknowthereisananswertoyourproblem, but that needs a frank intimate discussion which I cannot do in the paper.

Why be part of a tourism organisation? ONE often hears the cynical statement, “whyshouldIbelongtoatourismorganisation?” In short, if one is a tourism practitioner, our Provincial Tourism Act states that one has to belong to an officially recognised tourism organisation in order to comply with the compulsory registrations required by the Department of Economic Development and Tourism. But beyond this, there is no doubt that a collective approach to tourism management and destination marketing is the only viable way to ensure that an area is promoted and developed for tourism for the

economic spin-offs this vibrant sector provides. Many local tourism associations around South Africa often struggle to receive suitable support grants from their local authorities and as such, the ability to market and promote their areas in a competitive manner is severely hampered. Fortunately, Ugu South Coast Tourism is a very well supported organisation in that it receives substantial grants from the Ugu District Municipality and the six local municipalities within it. It is clear that this support is indicative of the importance our main funders’ place

on tourism and its benefits to our local economy. If one factors in the involvement of our private sector members, the tourism management for the district is very much a private-public partnership and we, as the entity with that management responsibility, can competitively present our destinations to our domestic and international market segments. Without that element of competitiveness,therewouldbeaninordinateamount of pressure on each and every tourism practitioner to try to market their enterprise or service to the extent that they can

realise suitable revenues. The principle is simple, we get the tourism trade and the media and consumers interested in the Greater South Coast as a preferred destination. Through our numerous marketing tools and the Internet, etc, they determine which part of our area suits their fancy and then they choose which tourism product or service provider to do business with. This set of processes, called the consumer-purchase response, is the ultimate outcome of our selling the first main principle “Come to the Greater South Coast”. Without that action, the actual beneficiar-

ies of the response (ie. our members and business in general) as said before, would be under higher degrees of promotional duress. By not being part of this promotional sequence, I believe that tourism businesses going solo are doing themselves a disservice and I urge those who have not got onto our promotional bus to do so by registeringamembershipwithUguSouthCoast Tourism through our memberships official Maxwell Mhlongo on memberships@tour Have a brilliant start to our warmer seasons in our paradise.

Pupil debate on issues of the youth GINISILE NDOVELA

>> ON Wednesday, the Gamalakhe police station staff and Olwandle High School staff joined forces to educate pupils about social changes facing the outh. The two institutions hosted a pupil debate in the school library where topics such as whether there should be an age to sexual consent, whether random drug testing at schools should be done, whether prisoners should get free education in prison and whether

juveniles should be tried like adults and sentenced, was discussed. Sergeant Vuyiswa Tyani said she and the teachers planned the debate for pupils to take part in so they would share their knowledge with their peers because the youth are likely to understand better the educational messages that come from their colleagues. Tyani said they wanted to involve the youth about getting solutions on how to curb teenage pregnancy, drug abuse and crimes committed by teenagers.

Rocking the night away CRITERION Yamaha hosted a Saturday night music extravaganza at Spiller’s Wharf on the Umzimkulu River with a concert featuring Jason Hartman. Hartman, who was the 2009 South African Idol, had the crowd enthralled as he played a wide spectrum of music. Proceeds went to the Rock n’ Ride 4 Rhino project. — Supplied.

Lieutenant-Colonel Welcome Shusha said they gave pupils topics that affect them so that they could work out solutions, and so be more aware. “We wanted the pupils to debate the effects of crime and know about their rights because they are the future of this country,” said Shusha. The debate winners received gifts. The police said they appreciated the research done by the pupils and the spirit in which they took part,providing reasonable arguments, motions and objections from opposition sides.

The amazing view from one of the chalets.

In February 2011 Sue closed the coffee shop,whilethechaletswerekeptopen,but owing to popular demand and “feeling like we had to share what was given to us” the coffee shop was reopened in November 2011 offering a full menu, and which is also available for conferences and weddings.

HCM ON COURSE TO ERADICATE SLUMS On Friday 06 September 2013 the MEC for Human Settlement and Public Works, Mr Ravi Pillay together with the Mayor of Hibiscus Coast Municipality councillor Nomusa Mqwebu launched the Masinenge Slums Clearance project. The MEC congratulated HCM for its determination in ensuring decent shelter for those who cannot afford it as per the Freedom Charter which proclaims; “There shall be houses, security and comfort”. The project needs to be understood in the broad context of Millennium Development Goals which set the year 2014 as a target to reduce poverty levels by half, and clearing slum areas in the same timelines. The use of the word ‘Slums’ and its original programme of Slums Clearance, graduated to be what is now commonly known as the Upgrade of Informal Settlements. As part of its contribution to this universal developmental agenda, Hibiscus Coast Municipality identified three areas to be attended as part of this programme: 1. Mkholombe Slums Area 2. Louisiana Slums Area

KZN Human Settlement and Public Works Honorable MEC Mr Ravi Pillay, Mayor Cllr Nomusa Mqwebu, Cllr Elvis Ndovela, Speaker Cllr Ronnie Nair, Cllr Nokuthula Madlala, Cllr Piet Rademeyer at the launch of Kwa Masinenge Slums Clearance Housing Project.

3. KwaMasinenge Slums Area The first successful project was the Mkholombe, Bhobhoyi Phase 1, which saw 697 homes built in the south west of the administrative capital – Port Shepstone. All these houses are now connected individually to the electricity grid, water and waterborne sanitation. Administrative processes are currently underway to effect transfer of these individual sites to qualifying occupants, and thus giving them a secured form of tenure. Hibiscus Coast Municipality

further recorded success by constructing 504 houses in Louisiana, for which it earned accolades in the form of a prestigious Govan Mbeki Award for Best Slums Clearance Project (3rd position). An additional sixty five (65) houses are currently under construction, whilst administrative processes to secure additional land for excess informal dwellers are currently underway. To provide adequate lighting, the Municipality has also installed two high masts. This will have an added benefit of safety for its residents at night. Processes are

underway to facilitate individual electricity connections; the public tender closed in mid-August 2013. KwaMasinenge housing project is a special project as it will be the first project within the context of the eradication of Informal Settlements Programme to introduce multiple storey buildings. The house product will comprise of single stand-alone 40m2 homes and multiple -storey buildings ranging from two to twelve units. While each individual qualifying beneficiary will be awarded secure form of tenure for their

exclusive areas, the nature of the project endorses the concept of communal living. While the technical details of these multiple storey buildings has focused on structural soundness and engineering ingenuity, much attention has also been given to the aesthetics to ensure that they blend with the surrounding environment of the golf course and residential neighbourhood of Margate. Amongst other infrastructural services to be installed, the project will have full waterborne sanitation which will feed into the Margate treatment plant; water to each individual site and a wellbuilt gravel road which will be upgraded at the later stage. Whilst the project will provide 882 residential sites, it will benefit over 4 000 people who currently live in conditions of squalor which do not befit human inhabitation. This is the commitment the Municipality is making on behalf of its valuable residents and is a promise it wishes to honour as its minimum contribution to the Millennium Development goals.

HIBISCUS COAST MUNICIPALITY IS TOPS The news that Hibiscus Coast Municipality has been scored as the best performing municipality in the medium to large category in the Consolidated Annual Municipal Performance Section 47 report for 2011/2012 has been welcomed

by stakeholders. The report was tabled on 31 March 2013 by the MEC for Cooperative Governance Ms Nomusa Dube, and has since been published in the Provincial Gazette. The tabling of the report is per

the Municipal Systems Act, 32 of 2000 which prescribes that the MEC for Local Government must annually compile and submit to the Provincial legislature and the Minister a consolidated report on the performance of municipalities in the Province. The report focuses on the five key priorities of local government, and each municipality is scored through a portfolio of evidence which includes its Integrated Development Plan, the audit report as well as other external assessment methods. Overall the municipality scored 87 percent; the highest in the category of entities

of the same capacity. A prominent feature of this report is that Hibiscus Coast Municipality scored highly in terms of Municipal Transformation and Institutional Development, and its Integrated Development Plan is aligned to the Service Delivery Budget and Implementation Plan, a feat that some of the municipalities in this category failed to achieve. Another factor is the creation of jobs through the Expanded Public Works (EPWP) and good local economic development initiatives. Furthermore, in the financial year 2011/2012 Hibiscus Coast Mu-

nicipality received an unqualified audit report and had a functional Performance Audit Committee. In addition, the municipality adhered to principles of good governance and has a sound Spatial Development Framework. The MEC has stressed that the main purpose is to report on progress being made by municipalities towards achieving the overall goal of “a better life for all”. Furthermore, the report is a key performance tool for communities and other stakeholders in keeping with the principles of transparency and accountability of government to its citizens.

Municipality hosts a consultation meeting with KZN South Coast Ratepayers’ & Residents’ Association The Hibiscus Coast Municipality (HCM) management and the leadership of the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast Ratepayers’ & Residents’ Association (KZNSCRRA) held a constructive and very useful meeting on the 19th August 2013 at the municipal Council Chambers to discuss service delivery related issues. Isigcawu has learnt from the media briefing held recently that this meeting followed a previous engagement between the two parties in October of last year and addressed issues raised then as well as those in the protest memorandum delivered to the HCM earlier this year At this meeting, the KZNSCRRA representatives expressed their sincere appreciation of the fact that the Municipal Manager had acknowledged the problems of poor discipline, poor productivity, and excessive spend on personnel, as well as the fact that ratepayers were not getting value for money. The Association was also appreciative of the fact that roads, verge cutting, garbage collection, by-law enforcement, street lights and litter had been identified as key problem areas. The Association recognized that to correct these problems was a huge task and could not be accomplished overnight. Concerning the Customer Service Charter, the KZNSCRRA remained of the opinion that it was insufficiently specific but understood the reasons behind this

and agreed that an abbreviated addendum, taken from the commitments made in Service Delivery Budget Implementation Plan, would correct this problem. An

undertaking to have this done by 1 September was made. Readers are urged to visit za and study the documents published there. It was also agreed to do a Customer Satisfaction Survey before June 2014

had been done which had resulted in an estimate of R300 million being required to rehabilitate the roads. Servicing of the required loan would be done within the present budget parameters and not impact negatively on the rate

to ascertain correct staffing numbers. If the Adjusted Budget allowed it this would be done during the first half of 2014, if not during the second half. Correction of staff numbers would begin thereafter. The Association urged the HCM

to accept that job creation ought to be our priority, that the private sector was the engine for this and that it was government’s duty to create an enabling environment for this to happen. Concerning by-law enforcement, it was explained that the by-laws of the previous TLC’s (boroughs) still had to be consolidated and the law enforcement officers trained on them. An undertaking was made to complete this in stages over the next 3 years, prioritizing those which impacted on tourism (beach, safety and noise control). The Association asked why by-laws from other municipalities could not be copied. In the interest of transparency and in order to curb corruption, the Association asked for observer status on the Supply Chain Management and Tender Adjudication committees. The Municipal Manager explained that the law did not allow this. On the 31% underspend of the capital budget for 2012 /13 the Municipal Manager said that he had managed to have this rolled over and had issued instructions to plan capital expenditure 3 years in advance in order to avoid this happening again. Both the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast Ratepayers’ & Residents’ Association and the Hibiscus Coast Municipality were satisfied with how the meeting proceeded and the spirit with which issues were discussed in order to arrive at solutions.



Home ownership at last ship the Mayor and the MEC for Human Settlement Mr Ravi Pillay. In his remarks, MEC Pillay highlighted how access to title deeds remains a fundamental principle of the government’s national policy in human settlement. This was so because this process contributes to the distribution of wealth by promoting home and land ownership.

for the very first time. This momentous occasion was held at the Port Shepstone Civic Centre, and was attended by Her Wor-

man Settlements provided the municipality with a list of about 663 properties from Gamalakhe, Merlewood, Palmview and Marburg. Of those, 87 had been handed over to the residents of Gamalakhe in 2010. Since then the municipality’s conveyancers have been able to register 130 homes, of which the deeds were the subject of this ceremony. In her congratulatory message, the Mayor councillor Mqwebu reminded the excited homeowners that what they now had was an inalienable right to property, as protected by our Constitution. She added that they were in possession of an asset which was a legacy that they could pass on to their children and future generations. Twenty families from Merlewood, and fifty-five from Palmview and Marburg respectively were part of the ceremony.

Lighting the electricity at Sea Serenade Resort Hotel in Mtentweni is Madam Mayor Cllr Nomusa Mqwebu with the Municipal Manager Mr Maxwell Mbili and the Senior Manager Mayoralty and Communications, Mr Simon Soboyisa together with the tenant, Ms Marthie Venter. HCM donated to pay electricity bill of more than R9 000 to the 67 destitute families who had no electricity after Eskom switched off because of their failure to pay.

HCM prides itself with success stories Isigcawu News reporters conducted some research in order to relay positive information to the readers of Isigcawu, about the successes of Hibiscus Coast Municipality and those incidents which the municipality prides itself about. Those aspects have also been seen as adding value to bettering the lives of the people. Amongst the key projects which are the milestone are as follows; Blue Flag programme The municipality’s beaches have consistently been awarded Blue Flag status since 2005, an international symbol of excellence in beach management, safety and water quality. In the current year a record seven of our beaches; Trafalgar, Marina, Ramsgate, Lucien, Southport, Umzumbe and Hibberdene enjoy this status. This represents the highest concentration of beaches in one local municipal area to be awarded this prestigious status on the African continent. In addition, the municipality ensures that the Blue Flag status is maintained throughout the year, and not just in season. Enhancement of the Ward Committee System The municipal area is made up of twenty nine (29) wards. To enhance the functionality of the committees and provide technical support, Council has brought extra innovation into this system of public participation by deploying senior political leadership, together with administrative champions in the form of managers to each and every ward committee. Furthermore, an internal tracking system has been developed to monitor the implementation of issues raised at ward committee meetings. ZK Matthews Award The ZK Matthews Award is awarded to the best performing group of ANC Councillors at the beginning of each year, during the January 8 celebrations. In the year 2012, the Hibiscus Coast ANC caucus was the recipient of this

prestigious award. It marked the first award of this nature by a local municipality. Africa Bike Week The Africa Bike Week, held at Margate for the past four years is as a result of a partnership between Hibiscus Coast municipality and Harley Davidson. This event, which brings together local and international bikers, has become an important local economic development contributor. In the year 2013 a

It is a golf tournament which brings together professional golfers from across the globe, and it enjoys pride of place on the international calendar of the sport of golf. The Hibiscus Coast’s strategic location, coupled with its world class facilities, has ensured the Women’s Golf Association’s willingness to host this premier event on our shores. As part of the legacy of the event, the municipality has resolved to e s t a b lish Golf Academy, which will primarily

assume duty on 01 October 2013. Enhancement of capacity of senior management In line with the objectives of government of a highly skilled and professional local government cadre, all senior managers have been enrolled for the Municipal Finance Management Programme through the University of Pretoria. The capacitation of senior management will strengthen the system of local government, and ensure the availability of a pool of skill in the sector. Electricity and Public lighting As part of the municipality’s effort to contribute to the conservation of energy, aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient street lights were installed on the northern entrance of Port Shepstone in 2012 Existing traffic signals have been replaced with durable and energy efficient light emitting diodes (LED) traffic signals

Newly rehabilitated Port Shepstone Beach Front record 5000 bikers took part in the annual mass ride, and more than a 100 000 visitors descended on the Hibiscus Coast for the duration of the event.

The concept was launched on Nelson Mandela Day this year, where 67 girls from local schools participated in a coaching clinic. Filling of Section 57 vacancies In the last year the municipality has undergone a re-structuring of departments, in line with its strategic organizational objectives. To this end all Section 57 vacancies have been filled, with the latest appointee expected to

Public facilities The municipality has rehabilitated its Port Shepstone main beach whereby it combined environmental consideration with marine engineering innovation. This was to reclaim and protect the road infrastructure which was damaged by disaster while re-instating and protecting marine life. As part of its innovative initiative, the municipality also restored the dilapidated Seychelles beach restaurant through partnerships with private sector last year. This was achieved with almost no public capital investment from the Municipality. The private partner had to spend his own capital

to renovate and rehabilitate the dilapidated public building in return for an opportunity to operate the facility in order to recoup his investment. Provision of decent shelter The municipality is one of very few local authorities who have been awarded Level 1 accreditation by the national Department of Human Settlements, effectively delegating it authority for the administration of housing programmes, effective from 2013. In partnership with NPC, the municipality also won the MEC’s Merit Award for the Ngcwayi Housing Project in the Govan Mbeki Department of Human Settlements awards Financial management The municipality has received an unqualified audit report for the 2012-2013 financial year, a status it has consistently maintained over the past few years. In addition, 100% of the Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) allocation for the 2012-2013 financial years has been spent, ensuring effective service delivery. Siyazenzela Food for Waste programme Siyazenzela Food for Waste project targets poor, mostly rural and peri-urban communities who exist on the peripheries of economic activity. The community collects waste in their area in exchange for food vouchers. In this way the community takes ownership of their health and living conditions, whilst at the same time ensuring their food security. Support for Student Registration fees Through its Youth Development office, the municipality supports over one hundred and fifty (150) students with partial bursaries for registration fees at tertiary institutions. A few students receive full bursaries.



Queen of High Schools Pageant

Newly crowned Miss Queen of High School Ms Siyathokoza Zulu at Uvongo Town Hall with Lungelwa Ndabankulu handing over.

On a sunny Saturday 31 August 2013, 23 beautiful young ladies from all over the Hibiscus Coast met at Uvongo Town Hall to compete for the Queen of High Schools title. This beauty pageant, which is organised by Hibiscus Coast municipality in conjunction with Yonwaba Nathi Projects, was in its second year running. Local artists, poets and deejays entertained the large crowd of an excited audience gathered there. The overall aim of the competition is to empower young girls to be assertive and generally positive in their outlook on life. As the organisers explained, teenage girls are faced with challenges which range from teenage pregnancy, drug and alcohol abuse, as well as the very real issue of HIV and AIDS. The pageant therefore provides a platform for young girls to embrace

SAPS applauds HCM law enforcement in fighting crime The South African Police Services (SAPS) Margate Cluster has commended Hibiscus Coast Municipality for their contribution to cluster operations related to law enforcement, especially in the Gamalakhe area. Isigcawu has learnt about this glowing account through correspondence addressed to the municipality, and dated 22 August 2013. In this correspondence the Margate Cluster commander, Brigadier Moodley placed on record that as the cluster they appreciated the dedication, cooperation and commitment of municipal Law Enforcement Officers and Traffic Wardens during the South African Police Services operations which were conducted at Gamalakhe from 02nd to the 10th of July 2013. Brigadier Moodley said the successes

that were achieved during that phase of operations were of highest order. He further commended the integration of services amongst all government departments, commenting that it had yielded the positive results. The contribution of Hibiscus Coast Municipality was instrumental in the following achievements; 29 shebeen arrests and charges, 14 drug arrests and charges, 13 dangerous weapons arrests and charges, 1 unlicensed firearm and ammunition, 95 B Class arrests. Amongst the aspects which SAPS appreciated was availability of Hibiscus Coast Municipality Law Enforcement Officers whenever they are required and the improved working relations between the two government entities.

SAPS applauded the Traffic Warden Mr Darren Govender for showing commitment in operations conducted daily to reduce crime in the Gamalakhe Policing area. Other municipal officials commended were Traffic Wardens Mr Nazeer Khan and Mr Sidney Pillay and Law Enforcement Officer Mr Devlyn Abbott Superintendent Jackson Mzindle said the municipality was heeding a call from the SAPS Provincial Commissioner Ms Mammonye Ngobeni who raised some concerns after the community had complained about the high crime rate at Gamalakhe. The operations were aimed as a response, and they had certainly yielded positive results.

Mayor leads successful women’s month activities The commemoration also coincided with the 100 years centenary of the 1913 Land Act, and is a prelude to celebrating 20 years of democracy since 1994. To kickstart the program a Prayer Day was held at Uvongo Town hall on the 15th August. On this day women from different congregations came together to pray for social ills afQueen Mandlovu , the wife of His Majesty King fecting women and chilGoodwill Zwelithini and Madam Mayor Cllr dren. In addition, they also Nomusa Mqwebu gave thanks for the many triumphs of women who Hibiscus Coast Municipality joined the rest of the Republic when the have succeeded against all the odds struggles and achievements of South stacked against them. On the 23rd August it was the African women were celebrated by women from various spheres from turn of young women to claim their space. Young girls from high schools throughout the municipality. This year’s Women’s Month cel- in the Gamalakhe cluster converged at ebrations were commemorated under the Assemblies Church of God church the theme: “A centenary of working to discuss issues which affect young together towards sustainable women women. Teenage pregnancy, drugs empowerment and gender equality.” and alcohol abuse were a few of the topics which took centre stage. The

session was particularly important in light of the fact that the Ugu District accounts one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the Province. The next event was targeted at business women, both established and aspiring. This session which took place on the 2nd September was held at Umdlalo Lodge and was broken into a workshop and a gala dinner in the evening. About a hundred women turned up to network, interact and engage with presentations by departments and agencies established by government to support the business sector. Informative presentations by the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform, as well as Trade and Investment KZN amongst others, were the highlight of this session. The evening belonged to Ms Zoleka Langa, a woman entrepreneur who has certainly made a mark for herself in the business world. As co-owner of the Mnandi Meats chain of butcheries, as well as Directorships of several companies, she has made significant

their power, and dream big for the future. In light of the growing ‘sugar daddy syndrome’ it was fitting that this year’s theme was “I am NOT your entertainment, I have a future”. The competition drew over a hundred entrants, who were trimmed down to 23 for the final competition. The finalists were treated to workshops on modelling, grooming, and all things glamorous about the beauty industry. But it was not all powder and blush; the finalists also had opportunity to engage with the difficult issues facing teenagers. A week before the pageant, an interactive “boot camp” was held at Sweetdale Camp, and which focused on life lessons, personal development, as well as social ills affecting young women in our communities. The 23 beautiful young ladies all

impressed the judges, who had the unenviable task to choose the ultimate “queen”. Ultimately, it was Siyathokoza Zulu from Port Shepstone High school who walked away with the title, with Gugu Sikobi of Marburg Secondary and Yolanda Gomo from Wesbury College crowned first and second princess respectively. But as Deputy Mayor Alderman de Wet who officiated at the event remarked, every young lady who had made it to the final was already a winner. The event attracted over ten sponsors, and finalists received gifts ranging from stationery hampers to school uniforms and part school fees. The municipality would like to thank all the sponsors who contributed to making the event such a resounding success.

Car Security Tips >> Remove your keys from the ignition. This is common sense, but not doing so is an open invitation to car thieves. >> Never leave your car running unattended — not even in your driveway — no matter how quick the errand. >> Don’t leave spare keys in the car or in hiding spots; experienced thieves know even the best hiding places. >> Lock your doors and close your windows. >> Park your locked vehicle in a locked garage. If you have no garage, consider investing in a secured parking area. >> If you must park on the street, select safe, well-lit areas and park with the front wheels turned sharply to the curb. This makes it difficult for thieves to tow your car. Manual transmissions should be left in gear. >> Use paint or an indelible marker to put the vehicle identification number under the engine hood, on the trunk lid and on the battery. The VIN is found on the dashboard on the driver’s side of the car. >> Lock personal property, especially valuable items such as cell phones and cameras, in the trunk or hide them where they’re not visible to passersby. If you lock items in the trunk, do so in a secluded area.

Drag racing in South Africa DRAGracingisanestablishedsportinSouthAfrica,with a number of strips around the country including Tarlton International Raceway, ODI Raceway and Dezzi Raceway. Drag racing is controlled by Motorsport South Africa and all drivers are required to hold a valid Motorsport South Africa licence. Drivers can compete in a number of categories including top eliminator, senior eliminator, super competition eliminator, competition eliminator, pro street bikes, superbike eliminator, supersport shootout (mo-

torcycle), street Modified and factory stock. Drag racing is a competition in which specially prepared automobiles or motorcycles compete, usually two at a time, to be first to cross a set finish line. The race follows a straight course from a standing start over a measured distance, most commonly 400 m, plus 300 m for top fuel dragsters (except Australia) and funny cars, while 1/8 m is also popular in some circles. Electronic timing and speed sensing systems have been used to record race results since the sixties. The faster vehicles need a parachute to slow down. — Supplied.

>> SKZN XI relish first ever Premier League match on Sunday QUINTIN VAN JAARSVELD



HE Southern KwaZulu-Natal cricket team will make their much anticipated Premier League debut when they play host to Delta at Port Shepstone Country Club on Sunday at 9.30am. It will be the team’s first ever Premier League match after they overcame near insurmountable odds to achieve their elusive objective of earning promotion. They needed to win all seven of their last Challenge League games and pick up six bonus points along the way and completed this feat when they secured a bonus point win over Hillary Malvern in a game that was reduced to 27 overs due to rain in March. Southern KwaZulu-Natal Clubs Cricket chairman Deon van Rooyen said they are relishing the occasion. “We really had to claw our way into the Premier League and on Sunday all that hard work will pay off. It’s a massive occasion for Southern KZNcricketandRajaKaziandhisteam are determined to make the most of the opportunity,” Van Rooyen told the Fever. “Delta are a quality side and they could possibly field a couple of Dolphins players, so we know it’s going to be a tough match first up but the players are looking forward to the challenge,” he added.

this tournament for the first time after Southern KZN won the Ebbo Bastard tournament for the first time last month is incredible and shows the strength of our rugby in the region.” It also completed a stellar year for coach Jeff Harper, who also guided Amanzimtoti to the First Division title, promotion to the Premier Leagueandthenorth-southtrophy.“Jeffhashad a great year, claiming four of the five major wins, which is a testament to his coaching pedigree.” Haralambous added that the South Coast once again proved to be an excellent host of the tournament. “The tournament was a great success overall. It was well organised, well attended and all the teams and players thoroughly enjoyed the experience.” Fidelity South Coast Warriors duo Juan van den Berg and Chris Mitchell featured prominently for the triumphant Wildebeest XV, playing in all three of the team’s matches.
