Double murder mystery >> Cop shooting sees more cops questioned JONATHAN ERASMUS, CHRIS NDALISO AND MERVYN KRISHNA


OLICE are investigating whether the murder of two police officers, allegedly by a fellow officer, may involve more police, a source close to the probe says. More police officers were questioned on Thursday last week for their role in the double murder, in which a high ranking KwaDukuza policeman is accused of shooting two colleagues in the head. And, according to a well-placed source, the questioning by investigators had more to do with whether the crime scene had purposely been tainted than direct involvement. Constable Sibusiso Mthethwa (31) and student Constable Thobani Xulu (26) were shot in the head as they sat in the front seats of their police minibus on the side of the R74 in KwaDukuza on Saturday morning, Febraury 1. A fourth police officer sustained minor injuries.

It has emerged thatXulu’s father, station commander at Nkandla police station, is a former colleague of the alleged shooter. The accused, Lieutenant Thulamuza Mokoena (53), made a brief appearance before the KwaDukuza Magistrate’s Court on Thursday last week. He was not asked to plead and requested legal aid. The case was postponed until tomorrow (Thursday 13 February) and set down for the bail application. The court building was surrounded and closely monitored by heavily armed policemen. Police told The Weekly that there were concerns for Mokoena’s safety after a group of armed men allegedly arrived at his home in Groutville looking for him on Monday last week. He had, however, already been arrested and taken into custody that afternoon. While Mokoena has been arrested, the firearm has yet to be recovered. TO PAGE 4

KDM’s proactive measures

>> Municipality partners with Eskom to help manage energy demand during peak period

An illustration of electricity consumption during peak hours with and without the geyser switch.



OME-OWNERS in Ballito and surrounds will soon join hands with the KwaDukuza Municipality (KDM) and Eskom in an effort to reduce electricity demand. This comes as a result of the municipality and Eskom partnering to implement the Integrated Demand Management (IDM) Residential Load Management (RLM) project aimed at managing electrical demand during peak energy use periods. The project, now in its second phase, will see geyser control devices (also called switches, receivers or relays) connected to geysers enabling them to be switched on and off remotely from 6pm to 8pm daily (peak time). Areas which will fall into the project include Ballito, Tinley Manor, Sheffield Beach, Salt Rock, Shakaskraal, Umhlali, Shakas Rock, Port Zimbali and Fox Hill. Speaking at a press briefing at KwaDukuza chambers last Friday, Eskom IDM manager Sibusiso Tshabalala said the installations will be at no cost to residents. “The aim here is to reduce the strain on the electricity grid. Geysers use up to 50 per cent of your household electricity consumption which makes them the ideal starting point for electricity demand management in the residential sector. The main advantage of the load management system is that the relay system can switch the heating element off during peak demand periods.” He said that the project is needed because Eskom’s residential customers consume around 17.5 per cent of the total electricity generated

with their demand at peak periods amounting to more than 30 per cent. “Helping residential customers manage their electricity requirements better will have a significant impact on the overall demand for energy, while also achieving cost benefits for residents.” Tshabalala added that many people worry that they will not have

hot water during the period that the geyser is switched off, however, this will not be the case. “The load control system will switch off the power supply to the geyser only during peak periods. Even when the power has been switched off, the water in the geyser should be sufficiently hot for normal use.”

>> They are looking at whether officers were involved in extortion FROM PAGE ONE


source close to the investigation said the police were looking at whether officers had interfered with the crime scene. “They are looking at whether the officers in the kombi were, or had been, involved in extortion and if so from who they extorted. “They are also looking at whether other officers may have tried to derail the investigation and what their motive for doing so

could have been,” said the source. “One theory is that there was an argument in the vehicle over money before the shooting took place. “There is also evidence pointing that either all or just one of the officers in the kombi had been drinking alcohol as both open and closed bottles of liquor were found at the scene,” said the source. Hawks’ spokesperson Paul Ramaloko confirmed more officers had been called in for questioning but would not give further details.

SAPS provincial communications officer Captain Thulani Zwane would not comment on the details but confirmed further questioning of police officers was underway. “We can’t comment on specifics in this sensitive investigation but the police are making various lines of inquiry. The fourth officer who was present in the police vehicle at the time of the shooting has been released from hospital. As with any investigation he has been interviewed,” said Zwane. Mokoena, a career police officer, was promoted to lieutenant in 2011. According to official police records he has not been found guilty of an internal offence since 1987. The offence was not listed. Bongani Xulu, student Constable Thobani’sfather,saidhissonhadalways wanted to be a police officer. “When he was growing up he would walk with me to the gate on my way to work. He would sometimes have my hat on his head. “After completing Grade 12, he got a clerical job at Stanger police station and that was his first step into the police force,” said Xulu. He said what hurt most is the fact that he knew the officer alleged to have killed his son. He said his other son, also a student constable, was not taking his brother’s death well. “He is disturbed by this and now, as a family, we are looking at arranging the funeral. We have a son who [...] has not been the same since he heard about his brother’s death,” he said. Bongani will be buried in Manyane, Nkandla on Saturday.

Ayesha Khan and Morgesh Singh.

February 14, 2014



‘Voodoo doll’ charges dismissed MERVYN KRISHNA TWO KwaDukuza residents who were charged for theft by false pretence in November last year had the charges against them dismissed due to a lack of evidence at the KwaDukuza Magistrate’s Court on Thursday last week.

Ayesha Khan and Morgesh Singh were charged after several businessmen came forward and said the duo worked as a team to extort money from them by throwing ‘voodoo dolls’ in their yard. The following morning when they got up, the family would get scared when they came across the dolls with needles pierced into it.




The businessmen then claimed that they would contact Singh who brought Khan to conduct a prayer. Khan told the Weekly that she does not believe in voodoo dolls and black-magic. Singh said he was glad it was all over. “Khan only uses me for transport,” he told the Weekly.

One killed in accident

A TAXI driver died and 14 commuters were injured after their vehicle rolled along the R102 between Stanger and Darnell on Saturday afternoon. Reports indicate that the taxi veered

off the roadway and rolled into the culvert adjacent to the R102. Its passengers were ejected and found lying near the wreckage on the road verge. Netcare 911 paramedics and other ser-

vices arrived at the scene and found that the commuters sustained injuries ranging from serious to minor. After the wounded were stabilised on scene, paramedics transported them to a local hospital.

Action after PROTESTS

>> Happy Valley to be electrified after protests MERVYN KRISHNA


NGRY residents of Happy Valley near Glenhills took to the streets in protest of poor service delivery, barricading the road leading to the village with burning tyres and rocks. The protest started on Friday night and continued into the early hours of Saturday morning. Community members were demanding electricity in the area from the KwaDukuza Municipality. Other concerns included tarred roads and street lights. KwaDukuza mayor Ricardo Mthembu addressed the community on Saturday morning, saying Happy Valley together with areas from all

27 wards will be electrified. “Come 2015, the municipality will have zero electricity backlogs.” Councillor Sundeep Oudhram, who is the chairperson of infrastructure and technical portfolio, said on Friday last week the adjudication process for a contractor was completed. “The contractor has been identified via the supply chain management process. Now, we will have to wait for the 14 day objection period. “Should there be no objection, come 28 February, the contractor will be on site to commence work,” said Oudhram. The mayor together with his officials will meet with the Happy Valley community on February 28 at 9am.

Happy Valley residents crowd around to listen to KwaDukuza mayor Ricardo Mthembu.

another excuse to go further into one’s overdraft. This is not to say that I am gullible enough to believe that love comes freely. There are gifts to be bought, dates to be paid for, weddings to be bankrupted by, and unless you’re one of the lucky ones, a messy divorce and alimony to follow. I have often wondered how Valentine’s Day is celebrated in polygamous societies. Does our esteemed president make a week out of it, taking out one wife every evening at taxpayers’ expense? Or does he spoil a different wife every year? Perhaps he hosts an annual game of poker with his wives, the winner of which is showered with presidential pleasures on the 14th. Single people, I believe should follow the example of a friend of mine, who hosts an anti-Valentines-day party every year. When surrounded by the nauseating heightened levels of love, lust and expenditure, it’s better to be out and about with friends than home alone snivelling into your worn copy of Bridget Jones’ diary. After this, there is Easter to be endured, with children hyped up on chocolate running amok around our neighbourhoods. Thereafter, we have the elections and accompanying shenanigans. But maybe, if we’re lucky, we will get a few months of peace after that before the fireworks start.

special on a budget

Be creative with flowers.

>> Express love without spending a fortune

Write a simple Valentine’s message for your loved one.

Avoid equating love with consumption It's easy to get bogged down in the buying frenzy surrounding Valentine's Day, as retailers vie to rake in some decent profits from romance-inspired lovers. Love isn't about what you give in goods though; it's about what you give by way of time, attention, and acknowledgment of the other person. And none of those can be purchased. Once you view Valentine's Day from the perspective of it being about acknowledging and celebrating your love by spending time together, it's easier to realise that a budget Valentine is still a perfect date opportunity. Minimize rather than do without OneofthetrickstosavingmoneyonValentine's Day is to still indulge in some of the traditional Valentine's accessories, but to

reduce them. For example, instead giving her a dozen red roses, give her one, held in your teeth, and accompanied by your best impression of a Spanish dancer. Or, give him a special brand of chocolate bar instead of a whole box of expensive chocolates. Make your own A homemade card is always more meaningful than a purchased one. It says not only what you write in it but also "I took the time to make this because I care enough about you to give that time." Other things can be made too, for gifts. Draw on your own skills when making gifts; for example, if you're a keen gardener, give something from the garden; if you're a keen cook, make something delectable; if you're a keen outdoor enthusiast, give a fully guided nature walk or a lesson in your

favorite sport. Thinkofsomethingyoucandoforyourlove An excellent way to show your love can be through making love coupons or vouchers. These can contain promises that range from the mundane to the downright sexy, all depending on your willingness to do things for your love. Makealargeheartfromconstruction paper, attach as many coupons as you're willing to give. Some examples include: This voucher is good for one week of dish washing by me, no questions asked. This voucher is good for guaranteeing one season of your favorite TV show to be shared with me. And a promise that there will be no channel surfing during said show. This voucher is good for one loving foot massage. To be redeemed any time.

Send a box of sweeties saying what you feel. This voucher is good for one massage in a bubble bath. Any time of day or night. This voucher is good for a long snog in front of a movie of your choice. This voucher is good for the night of your wildest dreams. To be redeemed when you're in the mood. Exchange cheesy but sweet gifts that remind you of one another, for whatever reason. You can either initiate this yourself, or suggestitasaValentine'straditionforthetwo of you. The item should be very affordable, and recall some experience that the two of you have had together. Make a nice card that explains the gift but don't be too cheesy in what you write. For example: A plastic surfboard keyring. Write that it reminds you of the month the two of you spent surfing and how it was there that you realised you wanted to surf the rest of your life with him.

Wishing you an awesome Valentines day!!

Give time Giving time is the ultimate romantic gesture. It will mean a great deal if you're usually stretched for time and you choose to give up the whole day to spend with your beloved, doing things together that have nothing to do with work, raising a family, paying bills, etc. Banish the mundane and just allow the day to be about the two of you together.

Create a special evening at home together Make a meal in which you go to extra trouble. It doesn't have to be expensive food; just spend time making it more complicated and interesting than the usual daily meals.

Stargaze Step out to check out the night sky. If you have to travel, add picnic rugs, a thermos of warm drink, some snack bars, and a full tank of fuel. Find somewhere on the outskirts where the sky is clear. Take along a star chart and look for stars that you know. Choose a star just for the two of you and make a promise to look for it every Valentine's Day.

Doringkop scores points

>> Doringkop secures maximum points after beating opposition WEEKLY REPORTER


ORINGKOP Football Club secured maximum points after beating Mavusana 2-1 in a pulsating SAFA KwaDukuza Local Football Association Premier League game played at the Recreation Ground on Friday night. Thabane Shwabetha squandered an opportunity of putting Mavusana ahead in the 10th minute after he missed the target from close range. Siphosenkosi Gumede pounced onto a blunder by the Mavusana keeper Nkulelekho Makhatini and gently tapped the ball into an empty goal-mouth to give Doringkop a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute. In the 25th minute Sbu Mngadi received a perfect through ball from Shwobetha, but instead of shooting at goal, he tried to beat the Doringkop central defender and lost possession.

Just before the break, the Doringkop skipper Goliwa Makhosandile and Melase were involved in some neat exchange of passes before Gumede unleashed a rasping drive from just outsidetheboxandwatchedindisbeliefafterhis shot just missed the near upright. Trailing 0-2, Mavusana came back strongly at the start of the 2nd half in the hope of reducing the deficit. They threw men forward in search of an early goal and should have been rewarded after Mngadi shot from an acute angle and hit the side netting. Siyanda Skhakhane, coming on as a substitute at the start of the 2nd half scored a stunning goal from just outside the box to reduce the deficit (1-2).

Doringkop were content to adopt a defensive strategy and keep their slender one goal lead intact. It was a frantic last quarter for the Doringkop lads who literally threw their bodies on the line to defend resolutely and were content to leave the Recreation Ground with a hard earned 2-1 win.

>>First KwaDukuza woman to summit Mount Kilimanjaro MERVYN KRISHNA


LEDHOW resident Vangie Mari (29), a hard working engineer at Vopak in Durban, swapped her project management job for trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro in December last year. The former Stanger ML Sultan matriculant made history when she reached the summit of the mountain, bybeingthefirstwomanfromKwaDukuza to have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. Mari said: “It was truly a fantastic adventure. The team of local guides was fantastic. “They carried the bulk of my equipment,fedme,sangtomealongtheway. We shared stories, tears and laughter,” she said. Mari, the daughter of Rajen and Padmini of Larkfield added that everyday on the mountain is different, with each day crossing into a completely different climate zone. “The trek started in a lush rain forest and ended on the boarder of a moorland, with short shrubbery. Day three is a difficult climb through lava rock and boulders with the fourth day

the night. It got colder as we ascended and I started to experience the effects of altitude. Headaches and vomiting, loss of appetite and delusion, fatigue and exhaustion. I was blessed to not experience any of these symptoms, except for the loss of apatite, but being a true South African, I had a stash of biltong to get me through the days. “ThefinalclimatezoneistheGlacial Peak where despite the fact that the mountain is like a volcano, is almost at the equator and is in Africa, giant glaciers have existed since before the first discovery and ascent of the mountain, and continue to exist today.” Mari went on to say that she did not remember feeling the blistering cold. I only feel the emotions I felt when I reached camp safely every night. The joy of waking up on the mountain to a steaming cup of hot chocolate while still in my sleeping bag, getting out to the site of the whitest mountain under the bluest sky. Heading into unknown territory, feeling like I was the first to ever walk there or like Frodo on a mission to destroy ‘the ring’ in the fires of Mordor. The tears of joy as I reached the Uhuru peak, the highest point on the highest mountain in Africa.”
