Shaka’s legacy lives on Traditional gatherings too important to be looked down upon – King Zwelithini JYOTHI LALDAS

M

embers of the Zulu Nation gathered at the KwaDukuza Recreation Grounds on Saturday for the annual Umkosi weLembe Heritage Day (formerly Shaka Day) celebrations. The event was attended by monarchoftheZulunation, KingGoodwill Zwelithini ka Bhekuzulu, Inkosi of the Buthelezi clan and traditional prime minister to the Zulu monarch and nation prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, KZN acting premier Senzo Mchunu, iLembe deputy mayor Dolly Shandu, KwaDukuza mayor Ricardo Mthembu, Amakhosi of the Zulu Nation and a host of provincial and local dignitaries. Addressing the gathering of more than 1 000 Zulus, Buthelezi reiterated the reason for the annual celebration. “This day is set aside to commemorate the life and the legacy of the founder of the Zulu Nation, King Shaka ka Senzangakhona. Almost 200 years ago, the 29-year-old warrior ascended the throne. “The fact that he was a warrior influenced his style of leadership and had a profound effect on the kind of soci-

ety his leadership shaped.. King Shaka shaped a warrior society. That is not to say he created a warring people, but that he imbued our nation with a sense of courage, resilience, determination and discipline.” He questioned whether the legacy of King Shaka will be intact 200 years from now and if the nation is “doing all we can and all we must to preserve that legacy.” “Thisis about sustaining the unity of our nation, which is the richest part of our heritage. King Shaka brought together a fractured society and created unity. The greatest threat to our unity today is that fractures and divisions may creep in again.” He said he dedicated his life to serving his nation and to preserving the legacy bestowed by his ancestors. “I still labour, and will continue to labour, to see our values upheld for thesakeofunity.Thisunityistheheritage of our past and the hope for our future.”

Zwelithini launched an attack on the behaviour of some of the attendees of events such as the recent Reed Dance. He said these gatherings were too important to be looked down upon. “If you are privileged enough to attend, don't behave like a drunkard in a bar. “These events have a deeper meaning for us Zulus, they are not just ceremonies,” he said. He said it was disturbing that some people use the events “as a way to introduce alcohol to our children.” “I will not let this happen to my children. When you bring your children to me they become my children as well. No good has ever come from a child drinking alcohol. What I'm saying is important to anyone with a Zulu spirit in them.” Speaking out about the accident between Nkwalini and Melmoth on the Sunday of the Reed Dance where nine maidens were killed, the King urged event organisers to take care when planning events, especially with the transportation of people. “These buses must be inspected thoroughly. The transport for my warriors, my maidens and their guardians should be inspected. Even the drivers must be tested,” he said. He also spoke out against calling the KwaDukuza Recreational Grounds a “ground” instead of a royal household. "This is not a ground. It's part of KwaDukuza's royal household. Even though there is a municipality called

Drug offence arrests rise Crime statistics show significant drop in theft out motor vehicles locally, but increase in drug crimes NOTHANDO NDLOVU

N increase in drug-related offence arrests is a positive one, said KZN SAPS spokesman Colonel Jay Naicker on Monday. This comes after the release of the SAPS national crime statistics last week. Naicker said there was an increase in drug related offence arrests in all stations in the province. “ In terms of our medium term expenditure framework plan, KZN is performing extremely well in terms of crime reduction over the past five years. “Certain crime categories have shown slight increases when compared to the previous year, and we are addressing those crimes and specifically those stations that contributed to those increases,” said Naicker.

The Weekly reviewed crime statistics from the Mandeni, Newark, KwaDukuza, Sundumbili and Umhlali SAPS between April 2012 and March 2013. Regarding the drug related offences; KwaDukuza was the only station out of the five that saw a decrease from 957 to 953 arrests. Mandeni saw an increase from 163 to 211 and Newark from three to eight. Sundumbili increased from 220 to 250 arrests while Umhlali increasedfrom276to426andGlendale from 52 to 111. At the KwaDukuza SAPS, murder cases dropped from 57 to 47 while it remained the same in Umhlali SAPS and Mandeni SAPS. In Mandeni, only four cases were reported and 25 in Sundumbili. In Newark, murder cases increased

DRUG RELATED OFFENCES

In KwaDukuza, robbery with aggravating circumstances increased from 459 to 487 arrests while theft of motor vehicles decreased from 134 to 85.

SADTU ends protest MERVYN KRISHNA SADTU's six­month work­to­rule pro­ test was brought to an end on Friday, after the KwaZulu­Natal Department of Education met “80 per cent” of their demands. SA Democratic Teachers' Union eThekwini North regional secretary,

Mthoko Mpunzana, said a memoran­ dum of understanding had been signed between the union and the de­ partment earlier in the week. “The department had committed an amount of R367 million to meeting the union's demands. Some of the union's grievances were that Grade R teachers were not being paid enough,

grade 12 examination markers had not received an increase in salary, and some teachers and non­teaching staff were not on improved salary grades,” said Mpunzana. One of the key demands not met was refunding money docked en mass from teachers during a 2010 strike. Mpunzana said the department

He said the union was drawing up papers to take the department to court on the issue.

NEWS Woman arrested for drugs WEEKLY REPORTER THE KwaDukuza cluster task team has arrested a woman for possession of mandrax. According to information from the police, the suspect was charged for the possession of mandrax after she was arrested during an intelligence-driven drug operation headed by KwaDukuza cluster commander Brigadier Derek Captain-Hastibeer, together with the National Intervention Unit and the LCRC at a home in Newtown. She appeared in the KwaDukuza Magistrate’s Court on Monday and was released on bail. Other evidence including an undisclosed amount of cash was found and will be subject to an ongoing investigation. According to Brigadier Captain-Hastibeer, the suspect is believed to have a link to a currently ongoing investigation.

HE skeletal remains of a missing iLembe District Municipality official were found in Ndwedwe two months after she was reported missing. Police and the search-rescue unit found the body of Doris Bongumusa Buthelezi (43) at the bottom of a cliff in the bushes last week. Buthelezi wasemployedbythenationaldepartment of environmental affairs and was deployed to the iLembe District Municipality to deal with environmental issues. According to KZN police spokesman, Captain Thulani Zwane, it is believed that the woman was pushed off the cliff after an argument with a man who was known to her. The man, believed to be from Morningside in Durban, handed himself over to police on Friday last week. Zwane said the man would face charges of murder when he appeared in the Ndwedwe Magistrate’s Court. “The victim was identified by the clothing she was wearing. The police forensic unit will carry out more tests to establish the cause of death.” According to reports, a relative opened a missing person case at the Mayville police station in July when Buthelezi did not return home for a week. Buthelezi apparently told family that she was visiting a man in Tongaat. “The family made several calls to the man and Buthelezi but their phones went unanswered,” said Zwane. He said a breakthrough was made by police when they traced Buthelezi’s VW Polo to a panel beating shop in Tongaat. “They were told a man had brought the car in for repairs a month ago.” The suspect contacted police on Friday after they had left several messages at his home. “He initially denied knowing anything about Buthelezi, but then took the police to the cliff after being questioned extensively.” Commenting on behalf of the municipality, communication manager, Zee Nqala said the iLembe District Municipality “wishes to convey sincere and heartfelt condolences at this most difficult time to the family and friends of our fallen colleague.”

Minister takes action >> Education MEC and acting premier comes down hard on pupils MERVYN KRISHNA

A

CTING KwaZulu-Natal premier and education MEC Senzo Mchunu read the riot act to pupils and department officials after he found “total lawlessness” at Qoqulwazi High School in Driefontein. He was visiting the school with KwaDukuza mayor Ricardo Mthembu and education department officials last Wednesday. Mchunu found classrooms empty as most pupils were more than two hours late for school, while other younger children of school-going age were found playing in a local park. “Why are you not at school? Where is your school uniform?”

asked Mchunu, when he found the pupils playing in the local park. After failing to get a proper response, Mchunu personally dropped the children off at their respective schools. One pupil was found in possession of dagga, which was discovered in his pencil case, and a knife in his pocket. The pupil was arrested for possession of the dagga “We cannot allow drugs in our schools. This is a place of learning where children are supposed to be in a safe environment , free of crime and drugs,” said Mchunu. When Mchunu arrived at the school,hewasinformedthattheprincipal was on sick leave since August

2012, but her immediate supervisor was not aware of the leave, which was not authorised. Mchunu also complained about the close proximity of a shebeen to Maguyana Primary School, which should not happen in terms of the Liquor Act. The Act states that establishments that serve alcohol cannot be near schools.Mchunucalledinthe Liquor Board to intervene. The visit was part of the provincial cabinet’s Operation Sukuma Sakhe, which brings together communities and government structures at all levels to deal with service delivery at local level and to address social issues. Mthembu said he would call a meeting of parents and teachers before the end of the week

Service delivery in iLembe at full throttle Service delivery in iLembe is at full throttle, said KwaZulu­Natal acting premier Senzo Mchunu, who addressed more than 5 000 people at Emakhempini Sports’ Grounds in Mandeni last Wednesday MERVYN KRISHNA

K

WAZULU-NATAl acting premier, Senzo Mchunu, said he was satisfied with the service delivery under Mandeni Municipality, which falls under iLembe District. Mchunu, together with his cabinet, visited the area as part of the KwaZuluNatal provincial government Operation Sukuma Sakhe - aimed at speeding up service delivery, interacting with beneficiary communities and monitoring other ongoing government funded projects. The office of the premier also recently introduced a hotline to report service delivery complaints; the number is 0800 596 596. Mchunu said in Mandeni Local Municipality, out of 30 902 households, 123 608 people have access to six clinics within a radius of 5km, a standard adopted by the Department of Health in its efforts to make health services more accessible to the people. “In KwaDukuza Municipality, 13 124 households, 52 496 persons are serviced by seven clinics within 5km. Another six clinics are in the process of being constructed. “In Maphumulo Municipality, eight clinics are currently servicing 57 684 peoplewithinthe5kmradius,withone clinic in the pipeline,” Mchunu said.

He said that in the past four years the provincial government’s emphasis has been on more effective service delivery processes and the introduction of a more integrated approach in the provision of government services to people through Operation Sukuma Sakhe. When speaking about HIV/Aids challenges, he said the Provincial Aids Council was currently dealing with the process of equitable distribution of resources to address “a holistic treatment programme and care in the community.” Speaking about job creation in the district, Mchunu said the Department of Community Safety and Liaison alone employed 2 100 people in the voluntary social crime prevention project. Other job opportunities were created in the areas of food security (800 jobs),mechanisationprogramme(600 jobs), comprehensive agricultural support programme (4 500 jobs), livestock (3460 jobs), and other infrastructure projects employed 3 820 people. In the green economy, more than 12 000 jobs have been created. Yellow maize production netted 400 jobs, and groundnuts production added another 825 jobs. He also outlined a massive agricul-

tural farms project, which seeks to identify six subsistence farms and convert them to commercially viable farms. Viable sites have been identified across the four local municipalities falling under iLembe District: Mathonsi, Bulwer, Siyanqoba, Kwahlongwa, Mwandle, and Khelelani. According to Mchunu, the objectives of the project are to improve the infrastructure on the farms by providing agricultural equipment and services, and to identify agricultural coops and assist them with capacity building and skills development. The end goal of the project, he said, is to have farms that are able to produce crops for the local and wider district fresh produce market. Mchunu also outlined government’s flagship project, dubbed iLembe Vineyards. “The objective of the project is to plant and harvest vines with the intention of producing some or all of the following: wine, brandy, juice and table grapes.” He explained that the iLembe Vineyards project is an agro-processing business with an agri-tourism component. The ultimate goal of the project, he said, is to create economically viable projects and industries.

“ENOUGH is enough! We can no longer tolerate infractions caused by people who live to compromise our well being in the interest of their own pleasures.” These were the words of KwaDukuza mayor, Ricardo Mthembu, after a swift arrest of eight suspected drug dealers be-

Kashveer needs your help MERVYN KRISHNA A 14-year-old schoolboy who was brutally attacked by a group of armed robbers is in dire need of assistance. Kashveer Singh, a Tongaat Secondary School pupil, was assaulted and robbed by a group of armed men while on his way home from school in June this year. According to his father, Mahendra, his sonunderwent emergency brain surgery after the attack and spent three months in an intensive care unit (ICU). He was recently transferred to the neuro rehabilitation centre at Entabeni Hospital. He has since experienced many complications. “At present he cannot walk or talk and his functions are limited. On the positive side he is able to identify family and friends and can eat. “Rehabilitation is paramount to his recovery and an essential part of another stage of his life.” The family is now faced with severe financial constraint due to the mounting medical bills. “Our medical aid has been exhausted and the hospital and specialists bills that are unpaid are considerable. “Furthermore the medical aid does not cover the rehabilitation costs. Our humble appeal to all is to please help us financially with any amount possible to cover these costs and to help our son recover. “We hope and pray and remain confident that Kashveer will make a full recovery.” The family also thanked all those who have come to their assistance thus far.

tween Groutville and KwaDukuza taxi rank on Thursday. Mthembu commended the successful arrest during a cordon search by the KwaDukuza Crime Prevention Unit (CPU). “I have said this time and again that no one is above justice; if these thugs continue to undermine the law, they must face the consequences for their irresponsible ac-

tions.” The men who were found in possession of dagga appeared at KwaDukuza Magistrate’s Court last week. Mthembu said the arrest would send out a strong message about the efficiency of the CPU. He urged the community to play an active role in fighting crime. “It is unfortunate that we still

have “classic problems”, with some members of the public who continue to make their homes a safe haven for criminals.” He said he would follow the cases until they are completed. He asked for law enforcement agencies to strengthen their relationships in fighting crime by working closely with the local community.

WO people were killed and six others sustained serious injuries after a Nissan 1400 bakkie crashed into the back of a truck , causing the bakkie to be ripped apart on the N2 near the Tugela bridge on Monday morning. According to Netcare 911 spokesperson, Chris Botha, paramedics arrived at the scene and found accident debris and the twisted remains of the vehicle spread over a large area. “Paramedics stabilised the seriously injured victims from the bakkie on scene before they transported them to Stanger Hospital for the care that they required.” He said exact details of the cause of the accident will remain subject for a police investigation. According to a passing motorist, it appeared that a motorcycle was also involved in the crash.

In a separate accident, 11 people were injured after a Hi-Ace travelling on the N2 South near Zinkwazi overturned several times last Thursday. Botha said paramedics arrived at the scene and found the roadway littered with accident debri s and the crumpled remains of the vehicle. “After the injured were assessed, medics found that four people sustained serious injuries while seven escaped with minor injuries. “After the injured were stabilised on scene paramedics transported them to hospital.”

NANXA amagama ethu ehamba phambili ohlwini lwezoni phambi kukaSomandla, sicela ukusebenzisa igunya esalinikezwa nguYe, lokuthi noma sesinukisa okweqaqa, sesibalekelwa nayizingulube, uyosamukela ngazo zombili noma yinini uma isisihlulile impi, asibuyisele eceleni, kube nguYe obhekana naleyompi. Akadluli emqondweni amagama kaZanele Mbokazi-Nkambule athi: “Le mpi oyilwayo akusiyona eyakho.” Emasontweni amabili edlule sibhale ngabefundisi abathe sekufike isikhathi sokubuyekeza iBhayibheli ngoba labhalwa ngabantu ababephila ngesinye isikhathi, ngaphansi kwezimo ezihluke kakhulu kulezi esiphila ngaphansi kwazo namhlanje. Siphinde sabaqaza isigqoko kubona sathi noma singenawo amandla okubadudula noma ukubajaha, sicela baphuthume bakhanyisengemibikoeminingieseBhayibheliniedida abaningi abazibiza ngamakholwa. Eminye yalemibiko ithi yonke into eyenzeka emhlabeni idalwe nguNkulunkulu njengoba enguMninimandla Onke. Izinceku zeNkosi zihlale ziduduza abashiywe yizihlobo zabo zithi abangakhali kakhulu ngoba: “UNkulunkulu uphile, uNkulunkulu uthathile.” Ezinye zize zijuluke ziconse uma sezichaza ukuthi uma umuntu ebona sengathi sezimnetha kakhulu, yilapho kufanele asondele kakhulu kuNkulunkulu ngoba leso sikhathi esinzima sifika uma eseziqhelelanisile naYe. Zithi noma sekunzima kangakanani, thina luntu akufanele silahle ithemba. Akufanele sivumele isilingo sokucabanga ukuthi uNkulunkulu akasithandi. Zithi usithanda noma sesilahlwe yiwo wonke umuntu emhlabeni. Siyavumelana nalezi zinceku ngoba sikholwa wukuthi impilo yethu isezandleni zaKhe u ‘Sonini nanini’. Yikhonalokhukukholwakwethu-keukuthi impilo yethu isezandleni zoPhezukonke, okwenza o ‘sikhwili phambana nobhoko’ abafana noNyikinyibhoxo, bajabule bafe uma kwenzeke inhlekelele bese besibingelela ngokubhuqa (sarcastically) bathi: “Amen! Intando yakhe yenzekile.” Kusuke kuncinze amakhwapha ekholweni uma selichukuluzwa kanje, kuthi alivuse umuntu phansi ngonyazi lwesibhakela, bese liziduduza ngokuthi kufanele “Bathethelelwe ngoba abakwazi abakwenzayo.” Mhlambe kukhona osebuza ukuthi kuphi lapho siqonde khona. Siqonde ekuthini noma singelutho, sicela abaholi bezeNkolo bahlele ngokukhulu ukushesha ukhukhulelangoqo womthandazo noma inkonzo okuzothandazelwakuwonanomakuyonaukuthikunqotshweleli‘dimoni’elihlaseleisizwe.NeSilosamaBandla, uGoodwill Zwelithini sesicelile ukuthi isizwe sisikhulekele lesimo sezinhlekelele ezisabalala ngesikhulu isivinini. Kubande amathumbu sizwa intombazane emisakazweniehlukeneyomphakathiithiyiyona nozakwabo ababe nesandla engozini yeloli eyenzeke eField’s Hill ngasePinetown. Le ntombazane ithi bayizisebenzi zikaSathane ezihlale zifuna igazi labantu, befuqwa ngomoya kaSathane (satanisim). Le ntombazane ishiye abaningi bedidekile nanxa kukhona phela abayihleka usulu, abathi izifunela udumo. Ukudideka kuzolokhu kuqhubekile. Izolokhu iqhubekile nemibuzo ethi uSomandla uyomyekela kuze kube nini loSathane onamandla angaka. Koze kube nini uSathane ezenzelaumathandangabantwanabakaNkulunkulu. Ekugcineni ngicela ukuthi noma ngabe abefundisi abakasabeli kuleli khwelo esilihlabayo lika khukhulelangoqo wenkonzo noma umthandazo, ake wonke umuntu ozibiza ngekholwa, anike idolo ukudla kwalo noma ngabe umzuzu owodwa nje athi: “SEKWANELE NKOSI! NOMA NGABE SESIKONE KANGAKANANI, SICELA USIXOLELE. SEKWANELE.” Mm! Ngavelelwa oNyikinyibhoxo bengishayela ucingo bengibuza ukuthi bengingubani-ke mina.

MANY parents have joined Facebook recently. Some join to promote their business or work, while the majority are on Facebook for mainly socialising with family and friends and simultaneously to 'keep an eye' PRIYA NUNKUMAR on their kids. I have mixed YOUNG, WISE, FREE feelings about this topic. My parents don't have Facebook so I can't really comment personally, but I don’t think they needed to spy on me either. I have seen a few statuses about parents on Facebook, the most recent one read "Damn, my mom and dad just invited me on Facebook. Do I ignore or block?" Of course that's a tricky situation because family is family. However, if you're older and you have a 'private' life, it does get invaded when your parents read about it on Facebook. Imagine yourself lying and going for a house party and few days later the pictures end up on Facebook and the first person to comment is your mother? There is only one thing she is going to say and that will definitely be 'grounded for life'. Although having your parents on Facebook might stop you from uploading something which will land you in trouble or maybe even stopyoufromdoingcertainthings,I'venoticed some teenagers are not really bothered by it. I'd find it awkward to have my parents on Facebook and then be “in a relationship” with someoneonFacebook,especiallywhenyou're just 16, but maybe that's just me. I think the final and most gruesome part of embarrassment which might hit me would be if one of my parents had my friends on Facebook and then uploaded a baby picture of me or say something about me which is personal and embarrassing, I'd find a rock and hide under it! I'veseenithappen,however,notallparents are like this, although there are a few. I've seen a few cases where guys even flirted with a girl on Facebook and her parent commented on the post, again AWKWARD! I guess teenagers handle situations differently. I personally wouldn't want to mix my social online life with my family life. I'm not saying my parents are boring becauseIspendsomuchtimewiththemathome, so I know they aren't - but mixing your social life online with your family life can leave you inaverystickysituation.Doyouhaveyourparents on Facebook? Does it leave you in a sticky situation sometimes? Email me at Priya.nunkumar@gmail.com and tell me your story!

Know media and its role

KAVEEL SINGH JUST SAYIN’ THERE are few public entities or organisations that possess greater influence than the media. Be it your local community newspaper, radio or television broadcasts, we ultimately draw many conclusions based on what mass media communicates to us. Take for example, the Fields Hill accident where 23 people were killed after an articulated truck slammed into vehicles. Over the past week there has been endless speculation by large media houses as to what may or may not have occurred during this incident. Let me repeat...speculation. Let’s stop for a moment and analyse the facts. Yes, it is a great tragedy with the loss of lives and great impacton the affected families. But what do we have about the accident? Who should we be directing our emotional concerns to? A video showing the horrific crash was doing its rounds shortly after the incident. Has the investigation into the alleged brake failure been concluded? No. Has

there been any solid comment from the truck owners? No. Has the truck driver been given an opportunity to give his version of events concisely? No. Sympathy has poured in for the young immigrant truck driver. And perhaps this is justified. But remember, the brake failure has thus far been his testimony of events. Not the determination of a proper investigation. The vilification of the young man has been a drive by large media houses. They have also largely inferred that the trucking company is somewhat to blame. And well, perhaps they are. But that is not for us to determine. Neither is his innocence or guilt. Factual information on this issue is currently minimal at the most. If this was not such a well publicised case, reporters wouldnotevencontinuallyupdate you on court appearances. My point is simple. It is vital to be wary of certain “hyped” up issues. Of course, most media houses ensure all factual information is presented in an objective manner. Most importantly, however, media has long been regarded as the “watchdog” for society. But don't buy into what everyone vehemently preaches to you. Always analyse the deeper impact of issues and the context around that.

‘The vilification of the young man has been a drive by large media houses.’

local roads THE potholes in Ballito, Stanger and literally the whole Ilembe district have not been properly repaired since 1994. Presently, the roads are in a shocking conditiontosaytheleast.Countlessletters have been written to council regarding these issues, but it is to no avail. The ludicrous situation is that the KwaDukuza Municipality are trying to promote tourism half heartily. Therefore a total waste of time and energy. YetourMinisterbelievesthattourism

is the biggest job creator. The workmanship of the work done on the pavement on Ballito Drive is terrible. At any stage there were approximately six to eight labourers working on placing pavements on Ballito Drive. At no stage were more than two labourers working whilst the rest watched. Already the complaints are cominginbecauseofthepoorplanning and construction. The council have effectively removedapproximately50%oftheparking in Chief Luthuli Street in their plan-

ning. The very businesses whom they extol rates are losing up to 50% of their turnover. They should NOT charge these businesses any rates until they have rectified this disastrous planning to the satisfaction of the businesses. The council must be taken to task. Ratepayers pay rates to maintain a decent street in front of their property. If you pay for something and don`t get it you are entitled to take action. The Constitution is there to protect the people. Ray Millican

Unsuspecting customers get ripped­off I TOOK a contract via a local telephone company KwaDukuza and found that what was advertised was not what I received. I returned the phone the next day. I then found that I was being repeatedly charged for the contract even though the phone was returned. I contacted client services about the problem and they advised that the problem will be rectified and I will be credited. This persisted and I went to the manager of a local branch who confirmed that the contract will be cancelled and I will be credited for the amounts that I have already paid.

I now find that I have been charged an amount of R2547-38 as a forfeiture feeforthiscontractaswellasamonthly instalment from date of signing of the contract to date. At the outset of signing this contract I received no documentation whatsoever confirming that I had this contract, neither did I receive a document when I returned the phone. There was no clause stating that I will be charged this amount. On my querying this situation with another branch again shortly thereafter, I found that there is no record on file that the phone was returned the very next day or ever returned for that

matter. My landline is continuously being cut off and I am being charged re-connectionfeesbecauseofthis,allbecause someone did not do his or her job properly. The account statement does not even have a postal address nor email address whom one can contact with queries of this nature. IamawareoftheCreditRegulations and I know my rights. It seems that this company does not know theirs. KS Naidoo

I KNOW its stated in the freedom charter, “that the wealth of the country belongs to all its people and must be shared equally but it’s not happening”. What we are witnessing from the year 2000 that the wealth belongs to politicians and people who are well connected to the ruling party. What I have seen and I am still seeing is the poor and the working class are used and are still going to be used as “fodder during elections” as many people who live in villages are very poor. Politicians try to mislead these people that they represent them and also make empty promises. Some

parties bluff the people with t-shirts, a once-off meal and after they are voted in you see them again after five years. Politicians earn high salaries and havemanyperks,butnotrealisingthat we are the employers we are paying them, (the tax-payers and the ratepayers). I have seen some dedicated politicians who have showed and are still showing their strength. They are building that partnership with the poor.Remember, opposition parties play a major role in trying to fightforcleangovernancebytheruling party.Remember,electapoliticalparty that helps you every day and not one

day only. I thought in 20 years of our democracy that councillors have fulfilled the commitment of indigent support, but its sad to see some political parties use this support forms only during elections.Dear voter, you must ask these politicians “where were you for the past five years?” And that will give you a guideline to vote for the right party of your choice.

HUNDREDS of unemployed people in KwaDukuza will stand to benefit from the multimillion rand road construction works that the KwaDukuza Municipality is under­ taking. Speaking at the project handover on Tuesday last week at the Nonoti Mouth, KwaDukuza mayor Ricardo Mthembu told lo­ cals to take advantage of the opportunities

that government is creating as part of alle­ viating poverty. The municipality will be spending at least R4.5 million towards the construction of the 1.5km Nonoti bus route. “These projects will make a difference in the lives of the unemployed who will receive employment. “However, this assertion does not mean that the people must rely in government projects for employment.

“There are many other opportunities in the waiting out of government, especially in the business sector,” said Mthembu. Since the beginning of the month, the municipality has delivered five other multi­ million rand infrastructural development projects.

Advertorial - ‘Career Compass’ to success RESEARCHhasindicatedthatpro­ spective tertiary education stu­ dents are less than confident about their career choices. Many in first year are over­ whelmed,studiesareverydifficult at a tertiary level, and learners land up questioning whether the effort required matches their pas­ sion for the industry they have selected. There’s no doubt that selecting the right path towards a satisfy­ ing career can be a daunting task, particu­ larly if you are a young student with little ex­ perience of the working world. Boston City Campus and Business College recognises that this is a life­changing decision and therefore offers at no obligation the opportunity to complete the career compass skills and in­ terests assessment. “This is a hi­tech but brief career insight evaluation that is aimed to help students reach career maturity.” explains Ari Katz, CEO of Boston City Campus and Business College. While the career com­ pass results will indi­ cate the industry a pu­ pil should select, fur­ ther consultation with a counselor refines these choices into a better career maturity. Boston’s IT driven exploratory question­ naire offers students sound career guidance and appropriate advice thatisdependantupon their answers to a num­ ber of carefully select­ ed questions. Based

upon the outcomes of this ques­ tionnaire in terms of an individu­ al’s interests, talents and skills, a Boston career counsellor works with students to determine what courses are appropriate in order that they may successfully achieve their career goal. Katz says the Boston Career

Assessment programme is an im­ portanttoolinguidingprospective students. “We have a number of career focused degrees and courses available to our students. We real­ ly encourage them to seriously considertheirchosencareerpath,” said Katz.

KING SHAKA STREET

About King Shaka Street

K

ING Shaka Street is the main street in the KwaDukuza. The street is named so as King Shaka's grave, a grain pit, and a small adjoining museum with artifacts and information from the time of King Shaka is situated in the town centre on this street. In 1932, King Shaka’s grave was built over with white concrete, which can be seen today as the King Shaka Monument. A statue of Albert Luthuli was also built in the town on the corner of King Shaka and Albert Luthuli Streets. The spring and stream, which Shaka used for bathing, and which ranbesidehisroyalpalaceandthepolice station, runs underground. This is why the KwaDukuza Town Hall basement always has water in it. Shaka's Indaba Tree's roots tap into this spring, which then runs underground and past the Victoria Hotel on King Shaka Street. Presently, the street boasts a number of old and new retail stores as well prominent buildings including the Stanger Weekly, KwaDukuza Post Office, KwaDukuza Magistrate's Court, KwaDukuza Town Hall, the Chief Albert Luthuli statue, KwaDukuza Museum and the King Shaka Monument.

Lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) is infection below the level of the larynx and can include:

BRONCHIOLITIS Bronchitis, PneumoniA, Laryn­ gotracheobronchitis (croup). The presentation of these conditions will depend on age, infecting organ­ ism and site of infection. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY There is no hard and fast defini­ tion of LRTI that is universally agreed upon. Essentially, it is in­ flammation of the airways/pulmo­ nary tissue, due to viral or bacterial infection, below the level of the lar­ ynx. Remember that gastro­oe­ sophageal reflux may cause a chemical pneumonitis. Smoke and chemical inhalation may also cause pulmonary inflammation. Viral infections: About 45% of children hospitalised with pneumo­ nia have a viral aetiology, common­ ly; Influenza A, BACTERIAL INFECTION These constitute about 60% of hospitalised pneumonia cases: Streptococcus pneumoniae (the majority of bacterial pneumonias), H. influenzae, Staphylococcus au­ reus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enter­ obacteria ­ eg, Escherichia coli.

BRAIN

THE ageing process takes enough of a toll on the human body. As we age, the brain issusceptibletovariousdegenerativepro­ cesses ­ from simple lapses in memory and concentration to outright cognitive decline or Alzheimer's. Fortunately, there aresimplewaystokeepyourbrainhealthy into your golden years. Here are three brain boosters to keep you on your mental toes: Feed It: Your brain needs sound nutri­ tion to function optimally. The outer membrane of brain cells requires a con­ stant supply of fatty acids. That's where omega­3s can help (Omega 3­6­9). Cho­ line, a B vitamin present in high amounts ineggs,broccoliandothercruciferousveg­ etables, wheat germ and tofu, may also be important for brain neurotransmitter functionwhilebenefitingmoodandmen­ tal performance. Fish, such as Pilchards, Tuna and Salmon are also considered good brain food. Exercise It: Research suggests consis­ tent physical activity can help people maintain memory and cognitive function as they age. According to at least one study, the exercise necessary to achieve brain benefits involved simple activities such as walking, gardening, cooking and cleaning. So all mothers who thought that their bodies were deteriorating by being do­ mestic are actually incorrect. If you plan your days and chores around the house, these can be most ben­ eficial to you! The main reason being that there is so much to do, that you are com­ pelledtobeefficient,timeously,kill'many birds with one stone'.

Another recent study showed that after a year of lifting weights twice a week, el­ derlywomenperformedsignificantlybet­ ter on tests of mental processing com­ pared to women who participated in a balancing and toning program instead.

Boosting your self confidence, esteem and worth AND enabling you to carry out your daily tasks with ease. Challenge It: In a sense, if you don't challenge your brain, stagnation can set in, leading to all sorts of problems over

time. The solution is simple, research sug­ gests: challenge your brain. How? Try crossword puzzles, chess, word problems or other strategies to keep your brain alert and engaged. Try not to let technological conve­ niences (calculators are a great example) replace using your mind to figure things out. The moral is simple: Take care of your mind and your mind will do the same for you. Keep yourself thinking only thoughts of a positive nature. Do deep breathing exercises; at least 20 deep breaths; breathe in through your nostrils and out fast through pursed lips. After deep breaths, keep your eyes closed and observe all this positive energy flow through your body. The body is re­ox­ ygenated, and has toxic chemicals move out of it during this process. Some pa­ tients even feel a tingling sensation after a good breathing session.

Foot Care: Treating metatarsalgia CUSTOM foot orthotics offer several advan­ tages. They are transferrable across shoes, so the wearer is not restricted to certain footwear. The orthotic shell supports the medial arch and distributes weight across the entire plantar portion of thefoot. Or­ thoses act to control the dynamic motion of the foot, limiting abnormal motion and pre­ venting problems as the patient walks. Careful examination of the symptoms andthecorrectapplicationofFootOrthotics incorporating metatarsal pads, can provide significant relief for the patient and allow them to return to an active and healthy life­ style. Primary and secondary: Metatarsalgia canbeclassifiedaseitherprimaryorsecond­ ary. Primary metatarsalgia is considered structural in nature—an anatomical abnor­ mality resulting in increased pressure under the forefoot. Eg: Pes Cavus (High Arches). Metatarsalgia is a global term to de­ scribe forefoot pain. It covers pain occurring at the metatarsal heads, the metatar­ sophalangealjoints(MPJs),orinthesofttis­

sue in that region and can lead to a variety of diagnoses. Secondary metatarsalgia is defined as pain that does not originate within the metatarsal area. Metatarsalgia is one of the more com­ mon foot­pain complaints seen by Medical Professionals. The causes are diverse and

the pain can be debilitating. Keratosis (Callus): Callus is a thickening of the skin, and in the feet it is often noted under the forefoot. This may be due to a “dropped” metatarsal, or an abnormal foot position. The repetitive pressure created by these conditions can result in tissue build­ up. Hammertoes are frequently a contribut­ ing factor as they can significantly change the metatarsal angle. The Role of Biomechanics: There are many biomechanical reasons why metatar­ salgia may occur. Excessive pressure can lead to callus, fat pad wasting, inflamma­ tion, and associated pain. Other possibilities may include trauma, post­surgicalsideeffects,arthritis,Morton's neuroma and neuromuscular diseases caus­ ing muscle imbalance. Metatarsal Pads: The most common ap­ proach to treating metatarsalgia is to of­ fload the affected area.

September 27, 2013 (CPF) meeting was held at Dube Village in Groutville to address crime in KwaDukuza on Saturday. Over 200 people attended the meeting which was held to find solutions to crime. Treasurer of the CPF, Thulani Ntuli, who chaired the meeting, explained that KwaDukuza SAPS Cluster

each criminal incident so that justice can be served. In his speech, sector commander lieutenant NE Mbonambi stressed that a neighbourhood watch should be established. Mbonambi urged the community to attend court proceedings. Furthermore,thepublicwaswarned

AN author, who has sold over 5000 copies of a book that tackles financial issues, urges parents to be good financial rolemodels to their children According to Phume Ndumo children do what they see what their parents do rather than what they are told to do. “We must model good money behaviour to our children,” she said. Ndumo also advised parents to talk to their children about money. “OnethingIbelievewemustnot give children clothing store cards to purchase clothes on credit. “It is good to let our children wait until we have money to buy them clothes they need in cash. This will teach them the value of waiting. Instant ratification is killing us because we do not want to save and wait until we have money to buy things on cash.” Ndumo said she made a lot of money blunders when she started working despite the fact that she was a Bcom graduate to an extent that purchasing her first home became a mission. “Irealisedhowdifficult it must be for ordinary people who do not have a background in commerce or who have never worked for banks to make simple decisions like saving for their children's tertiary education, how to buy a home, how to buy shares and others.” Ndumo has published two books '7 secrets why the rich own their homes' and 'From Debt to Riches'. Ndumo's mission is to educate those who are struggling

financially. The Clermont born motherof-two said many people do not understand how to use money. “People do not understand that debt comes at a cost. I am amazed that many people who have credit cards have no idea about the interest rate they entail. Some buy cars on residual which is expensive. “The fact that our schools do not teach us about money is a big challenge for our country. I believe that if people knew the implications and consequences of getting into debt, very few people would have debt. “I manage my money and do not have lots of debts because I know what a waste of money it is to have lots of debt and to pay interest. Cash is king and when you pay cash for most things, you can really see where your money is going.” Ndumo said each individual has a different background and circumstances where there will always be someone who is better or worse than the other.

She said there is no need to compete. “When we start competing with others wemaywastethelittlethatwehaveand not achieve our goals. Some people even open clothing store accounts, buy expensive furniture and cars to impress others,” said Ndumo. “All they are doing here is hurting themselves and their loved ones because sometimes we may even be tempted to steal or commit fraud to keep up with others.” Ndumo advised people to know what is important to them and make sure they spend their money to achieve that. “Improve your skills so that you are marketable and can get a promotion and a better job or even start your own business. “Control your expenses and don't waste money on unnecessary things that will not make you better of in the long run. We must stop overdressing and buying latest model cars. Invest your money in the stock exchange by buying exchange traded funds. “This is simple for an average person to buy shares, it is relatively safe and the costs are low whilereturnsare good.” Ndumo encouraged people to learn to save and invest money monthly. Saving and investing before spending is essential, according to Ndumo, since many people spend all their money and save the remainder.

OREthan20cowswillbecycling from Pietermaritzburg to DurbanonSunday13Octoberinthe 2013 Amashova Cycle race from Pietermaritzburg to Durban! Okay...maybe not real cows, but more than 20 cyclists dressed in cow suits pedalling for all they’re worth. Their “moo”-vement is known as “The Cows” - a fundraising arm of CHOC (the Childhood Cancer Foundation SA). Fun-loving entrepreneur and Durban North resident, Gordon Reid, will be one of them. “I joined The Cows as the emphasis is on the FUN in fundraising. We’re each encouraged to challenge ourselves to be extraordinary, have fun and also raise awareness towards cancer,” Reid told Fever. The idea of doing something different all began in 2008 when a woman, “Kerrin Bain lost her daughter to cancer,” he explained.

Cows for cancer “After the grieving and slowly getting over the shock of losing her daughter she became determined to help other parents who were going to be in the same situation. “She convinced a work colleague Cordi van Niekerk - to do an event in some kind of suit to raise awareness of childhood cancer. Cordi and five mates then decided to do the 94.7 Cycle race in Johannesburg dressed up in cow suits that they had found at a fancy dress store,” And so “The Cows” were born. “The cow suit isn’t just for cycling,” Reid says. “In fact, we’ve had Cows climb Kilimanjaro, do the Iron Man and run marathons, and next year we’ll be doing the Midmar Mile in Cow triathlon suits!” Reid was introduced to the concept by a friend and, “I fell in love with it! It’s quirky, off-the-wall, fun, different, and has a touch of lunacy attached.” This married, father of two admits to beingabitofanadrenalinjunkie-having jumpedoffMosesMabhidarecently-and also enjoys mountain biking and watching Formula 1 racing.

“‘Love Living Life’’ is The Cows slogan and it’s pretty apt in my life.” Reid has been training hard, “But not in my cow suit! We have a huge event on the eve of the Amashova where our Cow Cycling kit and Cow Suits will be handed out.” Fundraising is from January to December and kit is handed out accordingly. “The first target is R6 000 and you get some top-of-the-line cycling shorts and a shirt. The next target is R20 000 where you get the full cow suit and then there is a corporate sponsorship where R30 000 gets you a pie bicycle,” Reid explained, who has been hard at work organising events to raise money. “I really want to raise awareness of the reality of childhood cancer (by wearing the outfit) and try and support the countless people who are affected by it. This disease knows no colour, no age and no bounds. We need to stand together and help those being affected. “I’ve never done this sort of thing before, but I plan on doing a lot more of it

in the future.” Reid, the owner of a printing business, also supports Ethembeni School in Cato Ridge - a school for physically disabled and visually impaired - “They’re my Corporate Social Responsibility project.” Although only 22 Cows are registeredforthisyear’sAmashova,Reid believes the number will increase in time. “At the 94.7 last year they had a total of 350 Cows cycling so watch out, Durban’s numbers are als balling!” Gordon Reid PHOTO: DEBI BLAKE

Making his mark in KZN cricket >> Pupil earns call up in KwaZulu­Natal cricket shadow squad WEEKLY REPORTER

M

ANOR Primary cricket sensation Alex Pillay was ecstatic after earning a call-up in the KwaZulu-Natal Primary Schools’ under 13 Cricket shadow squad. The 13-year-old impressed selectors with the bat at the KwaZulu-Natal Primary Schools under 13 cricket championship held in Durban recently. Representing Ilembe, he scored an unbeaten 45 runs against the powerful Durban Central outfit on the first day on the provincial cricket tournament. He proved that his hard-earned 45 runs contribution was no fluke when he scored a brilliant half-century (63 runs) against Uthungulu before notching up 41 runs on the final day of the tournament against the selected

Sunfoil Durban outfit. Manor Primary cricket coach, Isaac Abraham congratulated Alex on his achievement and was confident that the youngster will earn his first provincial cap (based purely on his performance). Abraham was indebted to Ilembe coaches Petros Buthelezi and Desigan Pillay for honing the Pillay’s skills ahead of the provincial tournament. Pillay undoubtedly epitomizes the adage-“dynamite comes in small packages”. He was instrumental in guiding Manor Primary to honours in the Ilembe Primary Schools under13leaguelastterm.Hewasadjudgedbest batsman in the Ilembe Primary Schools under 13 League.

EACHERS Style notched up an impressive double victory in the KwaDukuza Sports Association (KDSA)-sponsored Stanger and District Volleyball Association Social League on Thursday night to keep their league title aspirations alive. The left and right combination of brothers Pravin and Jeeran created a huge headache for the Style blockers who battled to thwart their efforts resulting in Virgo taking a commanding 15-8 lead at the start of the first set. But, after a sluggish start, Style got their act together, putting points on the boards through inspirational skipper Nazir Khan and Nishen Govender to level the scores at 23-23. Lacking the BMT (Big Match Temperament) at the death, Virgo’s unforced errors resulted in their 25-27 demise. The second set was characterized by long rallies with Shehzaad Khan sprawling all over the courts to keep Style in contention for honours. After a dramatic turnaround in fortunes in the opening set, Style hit the “self-de-
