EMPLOYEES ARRESTED >> Locals feel long arm of the law after allegedly accepting R2 million in kickbacks MERVYN KRISHNA TWO senior government officials have been arrested for allegedly receiving more than R2 million in kickbacks from road repair contractors. The arrests are the result of an 18-month investigation by the KwaZulu-Natal police anti-corruption task team comprising the Hawks, Special Investigations Unit and Assets Forfeiture Unit. Sukla Pooran Maharaj, based at the provincial transport department offices in KwaDukuza, is alleged to be part of the racket. He was arrested while holidaying at the Wild Coast and appeared at the KwaDukuza Magistrate’s Court on 19 December. He was granted bail of R10 000 before the matter was adjourned to a later date. Maharaj is alleged to have received more than R300 000 in bribes from the company owners, a Durban couple, for ensuring they received the bulk of the contracts. A second senior employee, Simphiwe Majola, a regional manag-
er in the KZN Department of Transport, appeared in the Durban Commercial Crime Court on Wednesday. He has indicated to the court that he intends pleading not guilty to multiple counts of corruption, fraud and money laundering. The two cases - and those of others that will be opened when “many more” arrests follow - are expected to be joined for trial next year. Majola - who was in charge of awarding short-term road repair and maintenance contracts to various companies on the provincial database - is alleged to have bypassed internal procurement procedure controls that are meant to spread the contracts to various small contractors, and awarded the bulk of the work to the company owned by the Durban couple. The couple, who are believed to be in Johannesburg, have apparently arranged to hand themselves to police. Contractors had won tenders of more than R300 million. The contracts awarded were for the hire of

Police are also probing R200 million worth of contracts awarded to two other companies linked to the businessman. The investigation, led by Captain Fana Khawula, uncovered that between 2007 and last year the businessman allegedly: * Bought Majola a top-of-therange Mercedes-Benz C280 worth more than R430 000. * Installed a pool at his Ashburton home in Pietermaritzburg for R83 072. * Paid a R1.5 million deposit for Majola to buy a dairy farm in Port Shepstone, and * Paid R146 308 in architect’s fees for renovations to his home. The renovations to the home did not go ahead because Majola’s neighbours’ objected. During his bail application, Majola said he had been employed by the Department of Transport since 1994

The vehicle was transferred into the name of a Gauteng car dealership owned by a Mr Padaychee who is an alleged associate of the businessman, in July 2008. The following month the vehicle was transferred from the Gauteng dealership to Majola. The forensic report alleges that Majola went against department protocol by approving the hire of the plant equipment for the businessman beyond the minimum 60 days. In several incidents, a highly placed source said, the businessman charged the department for use of an earth-moving machine in Port Shepstone and Stanger for the same day, which resulted in payments exceeding R1.7m. “This is just the tip of the iceberg,” a police source said. “We plan to arrest many more people for this. We expect at least 20 arrests.”

The case was adjourned to March 18. According to sources, the investigation began after a department employee grew suspicious of how Majola could afford his expensive car. The employee did further checks on the vehicle and discovered it was registered in the name of a Durban businessman who provided services to the department. According to a forensic report commissioned by the Department of Treasury, the employee reported the matter to the Special Investigations Unit. Police allege that in2007,acompanyownedbythecouple had purchased the MercedesBenz from a dealership in uMhlanga and had given it to Majola in 2008.

MERVYN KRISHNA N-FORCE Security officers arrested a wantedcatburglaronFriday,December 27, accused of stealing thousands of rands worth of valuable items from
N-Force nabs “master-thief” residents in the Townview area. For months, jewellery, cellphones, cash and other expensive items have disappeared from homes. According to N-Force director Nitesh Arjun in nearly every instance there were virtually no clues, and the suspect, Gideon Masinga, would often cover his tracks.
“The burglar was adept at sneaking past sleeping dogs and disabling alarm systems,” said Arjun. “We have been tracing the suspect for a while after several complains. The suspect is a master thief, he is known to break into houses without tripping alarms or waking guard dogs,” said Arjun.
He added the suspect was arrested afterThenusBotha,whosehousewas brokenintoaweekbefore,noticedthe suspect fleeing his neighbour's house with a bag full of items. “My officers and I got to the scene and searched the area. We found him hiding near the Stanger High School.” . “When he noticed our patrol vehicle,
he abandoned the bag and fled into the nearby bushes. “However, we brought in our sniffer dog, a German Shepard. It did not take to long, before the suspect was arrested and handed over to the KwaDukuza SAPS.” Masinga was charged for housebreaking.

TOTAL of 260 drivers - including a police constable whose blood alcohol level was nearly double the legal limit - were arrested by the KwaDukuza SAPS, traffic department and crime prevention unit since mid-November 2013 - all linked to drinking and driving. In a series of roadblocks and operations at Zinkwazi, KwaDukuza and Ballito, they arrested 196 offenders and issued several fines. At a roadblock on New Year’s Eve near the Blythedale Beach flyover, officers arrested 16 suspects for driving under the influence of alcohol and issued 29 fines for other offences. At the same roadblock, officers arrested a police constable who had a breathalyser reading of 0.54mg of alcohol per 1000ml of blood. Thepolicemanalsohadhisservice pistol and 16 rounds of ammunition on him at the time of his arrest. Traffic officers arrested another 12 people for driving under the influence of alcohol at a roadblock in Ballito where 36 fines for other offences were also issued. On New Year’s Day, another eight were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in the Zinkwazi area. KwaDukuza municipal assistant director Johnny Moodley said five drivers were arrested at a roadblock near the Stanger Hospital and 11 more during patrols in the CBD in KwaDukuza and Ballito areas on Thursday. “Our festive season plan has been activated from 1 December and we were ready for the influx of visitors to our wonderful town. I would like to appeal to motorists to be patient and tolerant on the road. “Our officers will continue to ad-

driving could have started the year in a sombre note if the arrests were not made”. Another alarming report was tabled last week, indicating the number of fines issued to defective vehicles and moving violations. A total of 1450 violations were recorded in December 2013 and January 2014. Mthembu commended the community safety unit and applauded the
joint operations of various law enforcement units saying that the future of road offenders is void. “With the additions in our arsenal of measures, these arrests are highly commendable and we salute the gallant efforts made by law enforcement agencies who worked to the nigh to ensure that there is peace and stability in our communities. “ Our municipality has always es-
poused the notion of safety for all during and beyond the festive season", Mthembu said. "The death of one person in our roads is one too many, it cannot be tolerated therefore; we cannot rest until we shake-off the fateful habit exercised by irresponsible people". Mthembu still maintains that the battle against crime and road carnages should be everybody's concern.

Critically low blood stock in KZN THE downside to the festive season is the shortage of blood stocks currently being experienced by the South African National Blood Service (SANBS). “Our blood stocks are extremely low, in particular Group O blood, the universalbloodgroupthatcanbegiven to anyone in an emergency,” says Sifiso Khoza, spokesman for the east coast region of SANBS. “The national stock level is only on 2.0 days but (more alarmingly) KZN is on 0.7 days. We need five days cover to be in a healthy situation. “This means that you could be at a risk of losing a loved one who might need a lifesaving blood transfusion or you may yourself need a blood transfusion should there not be adequate blood available,” Khoza said. “Without your donated blood, many patients are
in danger of losing their lives.” Collections in the country continue to drop drastically during the festive season, resulting in a daily average of about 2.0 day’s blood being available. This is far less than the five-day stock required to be collected by the SANBS toensurethatthecountry’sdemandfor safe and adequate blood is met. SANBS needs to collect 3 000 units of blood a day to meet the country’s demand. This is a plea to all South Africans who meet the minimum requirements tocommittodonatingblood,especially at this very difficult period. This act of kindness can save up to three lives. To find the nearest blood bank, call 0800 11 9031 or go to www.sanbs.org.za.

WASTE PAPER CAN BE a valuable commodity
WHY does KwaDukuza Municipality squander the tons of waste paper that could be collected in the area each week? This is a valuable resource in terms of generating revenue from recycling, the value of which could be used to help with the costs of all the necessary remedial work in the Greater Ballito area. Things that could be done with this revenue include pot-
hole repairs, trimming the municipal verge trees, keeping the public toilets in pristine condition, maintenance to the Board Walk and the final demolition of the remains of the old Dolphin coast Mall. There are many other municipal matters for which ratepayers already pay, but for which they are constantly ignored by the municipal officials, who appear to be used to living in dirty,
their lives are over. There are people in their twentieswhoalreadyfeelliketheyhave missed the boat to success and happiness. There are people in their thirties and forties who sit around moaning that life has passed them by. I want to shout to them all: "Wake up! You're still alive! What have you done today?" Ifwewantahappylifewecan't dwell on what is going on around us or our past mistakes. If we want joy and love, we have to choose them today. We get a new chance at life every time we wake up in the morn-
poorly maintained conditions. Are they trying to reduce the greater Ballito area into a slum area? Every Tuesday, we have domestic refuse and garden refuse collected. On a Friday we have domestic refuse collected only. Now, if Dolphin Coast Waste or the municipality were to supply say orange bags of a similar strength to the garden refuse
ing. It is up to us to seize it. Today can be the beginning of a new world and life for each of us. We can choose positivity and joy. We can live in delight starting at this moment. It doesn't matter how miserable our world or our past has been. Our present can be full of joy and our future can be full of happiness. Itdoesn'tmatterifweareeight or 80 - we can still make our lives and our world wonderful. Life isn't over until your last heartbeat. Start today, then, to makeyourheartbeatwithpositivity, joy and love which in return will continue to leave your world full of light and life...
SOMETIMES it gets difficult to remain positive in our world today. After all, there are many wars going on, we're on the tail end of a recession that has shaken the financial well-being of many, millions of people have lost their jobs and many more continue to do so, our education system is taking hit afterhitbylosingmoneyandgood teachers and our newscasts are filled with reports of crime, tragedy, death and destruction. For many, things are not very positive on a personal level either! "What can you do when you have done nothing but mess up your whole life?" These were the words I heard when I turnedonthetelevision the other day. They were coming from one of the talk shows that are so popular on television these days. I almost switched Aircon with Cooling & channels, but the Heating, Silent Operation words I had heard made me stop for an instant. I looked at the Also available: 18 000 BTU & speaker of these words. 24 000 BTU, He couldn't have been AT UNBEATABLE PRICES more than 18-yearsVisa / Master Debit & old, but already he was Credit cards accepted writing off his life as a useless waste because LY of the way the world ON W and his life was turning NO out.

Making 2014 count FOR many South Africans, the festive season started on a sad note following the death of Nelson Mandela. However, the sad news has allowed South Africans to reflect and feel a sense of accomplishment. 2014 is election year and also marks the 20th anniversary of South Africa’s democracy. There is no doubt a lot has changed in the country in 20 years and many are asking if this is a South Africa Nelson Mandela would have been proud of. It is without question that Madiba has left a legacy which every South African is proud of and now there is a sense of hope - judging by letters and resolutions posted on social media. With a new year comes new beginnings and South Africans may be hoping for some changes - this year voters will have the chance to do this. This week the class of 2013 will start a new chapter in their lives and the Weekly looks forward to sharing these stories with you next week.

Kuyizindleko ukuba nomoya omuhle khona.

Umuntu amane atheleke nje ngoba azi ukuthi ngeke umxoshe,” ezikhalela umfo kaNdosi. Uthi ngempelasonto eyandulela uKhisimusi kufike umlamu wakhe osebenza eGoli. Nanxa engaqondisi ukuthi wenza msebenzi muni, kodwa indlela aswenka ngayo nathanda izintoeziphezulungayo,ubonakalaengumuntu osebenza kahle. “Ngizibulale ngokumyalela indlela eza kwami njengoba angigcina ngisahlala elokishini,” kuqhuba yena uNyikinyibhoxo.

The children of Groutville were encouraged to create their own messages of support and condolence following the death of former president Nelson Mandela. The messages and artwork were put up on display at the reception area of the Luthuli Museum for visitors to see.
THE Luthuli Museum school holiday programme had a ‘Nelson Mandela’ theme running through it for the weeks of December. One of the activities the children engaged in was to create a banner using paints signed with their hand prints that was hung up across one of the walls of the Intrepretative Centre. Here the children stand to show off their handiwork. The second part of the programme commences this week and runs until the start of the new school term.

A slam dunk for Sanele >> Mthiyane elected Basketball South Africa vice-president WEEKLY REPORTER
ELL known sports administrator Sanele Mthiyane was over the moon after being elected vice-president of Basketball South Africa (BSA) at its annual general meeting. Mthiyane started playing basketball in Shakaville with a team called Rim Shakers in 1994. The players moved on to different schools in KwaDukuza and at that time basketball was the fastest growing sport in the country. Mthiyane received his first gold medal in 1997 after leading ML Sultan Secondary School to victory against Tshelenkosi in the finals of the Lower Tugela Tonver Games. After completing secondary school he got involved in the development of basketball. He coached the South African under-19 squad in the Zonal VI Games in 2011. He worked for the Durban High School Basketball Academy before becoming a FIBA Zonal referee. In 2008 he was elected as chairperson of the KwaZulu-Natal Basketball Association. Mthiyane said: “Our responsibility at Basketball South Africa is to ensure the development of basketball is done throughout the country through provincial associations and our associatesmembers.Weareresponsiblefor
the creation of policies that include talent identification, high performance and clear academy systems. “BSA is responsible for implementation of programmes that include the South African Coaching Framework. We organise national championships , select and prepare nationalteamstoparticipateininternational competitions”. Explaining the vision of BSA, Mthiyane said: “We need to restore the hype and participation that was witnessed in the 90’s and ensure that basketball becomes one of the best codes in the country that is able to compete globally. “We are currently putting together a strategy plan that will ensure mass participation that will in turn alignitselftothecurrentprogrammes done by our stakeholders”. BSA intends focusing on the provinces as they are the foundation of development. The Basketball National League, a professional league has been launched and finished its season at the end of last year. The league will serve as a continuous eliteprogrammethatwillnotonly allow increased participation but further create commercial relationship and investment and also help in the creation of job opportunities.
Ready to score: Sanele Mthiyane. When questioned about the state of the game at schools, Mthiyane said: “The status of development of school sport is the responsibility of the government and minister Fikile Mbalula’s department has done its best to ensurethegoaltohavealllearnersaccessing sport as a right is achieved. “Working with the Department of Sport and Recreation and the Department of Education will speed up our plans of developing basketball be-
cause of the maximum number of schools that will participate. This will further assist us in reaching out to more previously disadvantaged communities”.

The programmewaspartofanagreementbetween the German governmental organisation Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Department of Sport and Recreation, whereby a group of young people and managers visited Germany to learn about how sport is organised and practiced there. Mthiyane also serves as the general secretary of the KwaZulu-Natal Sports Confederation. His message to the youth: “Young people are the nuclei of the future of this country, the engine of all sectors ofoursociety,andarethepillarsofour economic transformation. “Young people are important in driving the progressive programmess of transforming, growing and developing this country. We shall continue using sport to fight social ills such as drug abuse which is a challenge faced by young people.” “I therefore urge all the youth particularly the Mandela Generation to go out in their numbers to register as a voter on 8 and 9 February.”
