Op Woensdagoggend 21 Mei is Ekurhuleni-metropolisielid Daniel Hunt (49) in ‘n tragiese ongeluk op die Kingswayhoofweg, Benoni, oorlede. Daniel wou ‘n motoris, wat in die vinnige-baan gejaag het, voorkeer om af te trek. Die motoris het na bewering beheer oor sy motor verloor en Daniel omgery. Daniel is op die toneel, voor sy vrou, Christine Hunt, oorlede. “Hy het deur die lug getrek en langs ’n lamppaal geval. Ek het na hom gehardloop en die hele tyd gebid dat die Here hom sal laat lewe,” het Christine verlede week aan Beeld gesê. Volgens Ekurhuleni-metropolisie het die drywer 120km per uur in ‘n 80km per uur sone gery. Volgens Supt.Vusi Mabanga, Ekurhuleni-metropolisie woordvoerder, het Daniel se kollegas op die toneel beweer dat die drywer nie aangedui het of hy van plan was om te stop nie. Die motor het Daniel op die eiland in die middel van die hoofweg gestamp. Die bestuurder (‘n 52-jarige man) het gestop en hulp gebied. Hy is kort na die ongeluk op klag van strafbare manslag in hegtenis geneem. Hy is verlede week op borgtog vrygelaat. Volgens Mabanga moet motoriste besef dat spoed gevaarlik is. Hy herinner die publiek ook daaraan dat hulle verplig is om die metropolisie op die pad te gehoorsaam. Mabanga waarsku dat die metropolisie oorweeg om strenger boetes vir spoed-oorskreiding op die pad te implementeer om soortgelyke ongelukke te vehoed. Daniel sou hierdie jaar sy 27-jaar diens mylpaal by die Ekurhuleni-metropolisie gehaal het. Volgens Christine was haar man ‘n baie passievolle en pligsgetroue man, wat voluit geleef het vir sy werk en die Here: “Hy was ‘n baie goeie man. Hy sou sy medemens altyd voor homself sit en hy sou sy laaste vir iemand anders gee. Niemand sal in sy plek kan staan nie,” het Christine Maandag voor haar man se herdenkingsdiens gesê. Daniel word oorleef deur sy dogters, Charné (21) en Chevonne (17) uit 'n vorige huwelik; en sy drie stiefseuns: Antonio (29), Rhyno (27) en Lucas (20).

Removing barriers to education Tutudesk: a partnership initiative by the family of the Nobel Prize winner, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, and the Amway Corporation, handed over more than 1529 Tutudesks to Rondebult Primary School. This Germiston school became the latest beneficiary of the campaign, which was established with the objective to help underprivileged children realize their right to education in learners and the benefit of doing so without the hindrances often associated with poorly equipped schools. The handover event was attended by representatives from the Amway Corporation, Desmond Tutu’s family and a group from Vanderbilt University in Nashville Tennessee (USA). The guests of honour were no doubt the girls and boys of Rondebult Primary, who sang and participated in numerous activities while they eagerly anticipated the handover. Rondebult’s Headmistress, Mrs Nozuko Khenyana, welcomed the various delegates and gave a brief history of the 130-yearold school, which she joined in 2010. The school has since gone through various upgrades; all geared towards addressing challenges of overcrowding in the classrooms. “Thank you to Amway South Africa for your faith in our school,” said Mrs Khenyana speaking to the Tutudesk partners. “We have challenges, but we are improving and we know that we can do it regardless of the challenges. The desks will alleviate pressure and improve our results. Our learners will be eager to come to school knowing that they don’t have to share a desk.” Speaking at the handover, Amway South Africa’s General Manager; Raj Parshotam said: “The learners are the special ones. When we look at the country ten years from now, it is this group which will be the engine of the economy.” Amway, through its One by One division and the Tutudesk campaign, has to date invested over R2,2 million and distributed over 14 000 lapdesks to schools all over the country in the areas which Amway operates.

Every week when I sit back and look at the newspaper that my team and I compiled, I always wonder whether it appeals to the readers as well. Sometimes there are too many stories, events and photos to place in one edition, and we also want to be careful of not placing old news in the newspaper. However, I think that the best way to determine whether we are on track is by asking the readers. If you have a story to tell, then feel free to either contact me, or submit it onto our website as a citizen journalist. tame TIMES is a community newspaper that is passionate about building a relationship with everyone that forms part of the community. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to share it with us. At the end of the day, we want to produce news and content that our readers find relevant, intriguing and informative. At the moment we are also looking for a young, ambitious journalist, as well as a copy editor, so if you are interested in the journalism field, please send me your CV. I look forward to your stories: Kind regards, Amy-Mae 083 594 8384 amymae.campbell@tametimes.co.za

Woman dragged under taxi A woman in her 20s was in a critical condition after she was struck by a taxi and dragged beneath it for several meters. She sustained multiple severe suspected fractures in in the collision. She was airlifted from Etwatwa Road in Benoni to Johannesburg East on Friday morning. She was airlifted from the scene to Johannesburg General Hospital for urgent medical treatment. ER24 paramedics also transported two adult patients with moderate injuries to Sunshine Hospital. The collision apparently occurred when the critically

injured woman’s vehicle was hit from behind. As she was calling her insurance company from outside her vehicle, a taxi crashed into her and the two vehicles, in a ‘domino effect’, approximately five other vehicles collided with these vehicles in the heavy misty area. There were approximately ten other patients on the scene that sustained minor to moderate injuries. Provincial Services personnel on the scene transported them to various hospitals.The incident is currently under investigation.

New development plan raises concern An example of a similar development as that envisaged for the Impala Park property.

Residents in Impala Park were up in arms about reports of a property development plan in Impala Park. According to a memorandum that was sent to council by the Ekurhuleni Metro Municipality, the municipality aims rezone the erf on the corner of Beechcraft and Canadair Avenue, Impala Park, at the current owner’s request, into a 16 unit dwelling. The Ekurhuleni Municipality circulated a rezoning application on 7 March 2014 to the City Planning Department, including other departments in Ekurhuleni, in which the municipality proposed the rezoning of the vacant property: “One of the objectives of the Ekurhuleni Metro Municipality in terms of spatial structure is to ‘promote the development of compact urban structure which optimize the utilization of all resources’. The proposed development of dwelling units on a large and vacant property that is located in the heart of the residential area of Impala Park, will fully comply with these objectives; optimizing the use of existing resources and infrastructure. The erf is unutilised and dilapidated and as a result contributing to the demise of the area. In conclusion, it is our submission that the application should be supported,” read the proposal motivation. Many residents in Impala Park were surprised and furious to hear about this proposal, as they alleged that they were not notified about this development before the development application went through to council. According to Mark Whitehead, who lives opposite the proposed rezoning property, he never saw a notice anywhere in or around the property- informing the neighbours about this development plan. According to Whitehead, the neighbours should have had a chance to object before the application was submitted. Whitehead’s neighbour, Fraser Harris, also objected to

the proposal: “The process of notifying all neighbouring properties in my opinion was not procedurally correct, as we as residents only became aware of this after the entire process had been approved at council level. A notice was apparently placed on the sidewalk outside this property. I beg to differ as due to the fact that this property is a thorn in my side, I pay particular attention to all that is happening both outside and inside the property and at no time did I see any form of communication regarding a proposed rezoning of this property. If this proposed development was to proceed then any privacy which I currently enjoy to the front of my premises would be severely compromised. The added traffic on Beechcraft Road, which is already under severe pressure, will make commuting to and from work even more strenuous than it

already is,” Harris said. Whitehead added that the electricity problems in Impala Park this year are also good reason for concern: earlier this year, electricity in Impala Park was off for an entire week, and has only recently been fully restored. According to Whitehead, a huge block of flats in a residential area will result in more strain on the power usage in Impala Park. According to Impala Park Ward Councillor, André du Plessis, he has been informed that the municipality is still planning to advertise the proposal for the development.

Du Plessis explained that, by law, the development proposal must be advertised in two newspapers, as well as on a prominent notice board on the sidewalk of the property; displaying clear instructions of where neighbours can object to and the due date for objections. The municipality has indicated that they are aware of this procedure. Du Plessis asks residents in Impala Park to keep an eye out for this notice, so that they can submit their objections correctly. He assures concerned residents that they will have a say in the matter before it is officially approved.

House safety tips

Recently a house robbery scene was visited, where suspects lifted the motor gates from the rails. Due to the front door and the safety door being left open, the burglars entered the house. Home owners are urged to please educate their domestic workers in safety around the house. Inform them to lock all the doors, and also not to leave the keys in the doors. Also see to it that you display emergency numbers in the home for your domestic worker and other house occupants to see.

NOTICEBOARD Boksburg North firearm office

Sjoe mense, laat hierdie ou tannie vandag ‘n snaakse storie met julle deel: ek en Gysie gaan kyk Saterdagoggend hoe ons oulike kleinseun, Chrisjan Junior, rugby speel. Dit was aanvanklik ‘n groot gestry, want ek en Gysie het aangevoer dat disport te gevaarli is, maar sy pa, Chrisjan Senior, voel dat dit rugby in ons bloed is. Nee kyk, na ‘n groot gestryery het Gysie die streep getrek en beslis dat die arme seun self moet besluit. Nouja, die mannetjie se kop lê toe behoorlik pale toe. Ek en Gysie is toe heel op ons senuwees om die ou bulletjie, wat maar in graad nege is, vir die eerste keer te sien speel. Toe ek weer sien, toe kom my dogter, Susan, met ‘n groot groep mamma’s daar aangemars; almal in bloedrooi- die kleur van Chrisjan se span. Hulle slaan toe kampstoele op net agter die lyn en kry gereed om te ondersteun. Mense, ek het my dogter nog nooit so hoor skreeu nie! Ek en Gysie, Chrisjan seker ook, was amper te skaam om te wys dat ons haar ken. Elke mamma daar het van begin tot einde aanhoudend gegil. Susan het die volgende dag nie ‘n stem gehad nie. Hoe-okal dit mag sy, ek was baie bly om te sien hoe trots hierdie klompie ouers op hulle kinders is. Ek kan nie praat nie, want ‘n paar jaar gelede was ek die gillende mamma langs die veld. Tip: Moet nooit te skaam wees om jou kind te ondersteun nie. Hulle voel nou dalk skaam, maar hulle sal die ondersteuning vir altyd koester.

Vroulike-kanker

bewusmakingsveldtog

28 May 2014

LittleQueens

Elize Grobler, Andrew Bergh, Heila Redpath en borg, mnr. Martin Smuts, saam met Dr. EG Jansen se damespersoneel.

Dr. Heila Redpath vertel die skooldogters meer oor vroulike-kankers. Skooldogters van Dr. EG Jansen het op Woensdag 21 Mei ‘n praatjie in die skoolsaal oor die Menslike Papillomavirus (MPV) bygewoon. Die doel van hierdie praatjie was om die dogters op ‘n vroeë ouderdom reeds bekend te stel aan die aard en

gevolge van kankers wat vroue raak, soos servikale kanker, wat deur MPV veroorsaak word. Me. Elize Grobler en Andrew Bergh (van Toga Laboratoriums) is bygestaan deur dr. Heila Redpath en het die dogters toegespreek oor servikalekanker, borskanker en eierstokkanker. Interessante, sensitiewe en waardevolle brokkies inligting is deurgegee aan die dogters om hulle te leer hoe om hierdie kankers te probeer voorkom, asook hoe om kankersimptome te identifiseer. Volgens Dr. EG Jansen se personeel wat die praatjie gereël het, wou hulle by die dogters tuis bring dat kanker ‘n werklikheid is, wat sodanig hanteer moet word. Voorsorg, soos MPV-inentings en – toetsing en veilige seks, kan lewens red. Danksy goeie aanbieders, was hierdie bewusmakingspoging van kanker by Jansen ‘n groot sukses. Hoërskool Dr. EG Jansen wil graag vir die borge van die damespersoneel se pienk ‘hoodies’ vir die kanker bewusmakingsveldtog dankie sê.

Preventing common female cancers

Cervical cancer (cancer of the mouth of the womb in females) is a cancer that is most often caused by the Human Papilloma Virus. This wart virus causes the cervical cells to mutate into cancer cells. According to Dr Ivan Campbell, a General Practitioner in Alberton, HPV symptoms only appear when it has developed into advanced cancer; in which case it is often too late to cure. The best way to deal with HPV is to prevent it altogether. This can be done by

getting HPV-injections and pap smears. HPV-injections boost antibodies against the virus, so that the body’s immune system is ready to fight it, should you get infected by HPV. There are three inoculations that are given over a period of time. Girls as young as nine-years-old can receive the inoculation, as it is preferable to get injected before becoming sexually active. The HPVinjection can still decrease a woman’s chances of developing cervical cancer even if she is already sexually active and over the age of 20. However, the injection is much more effective the earlier it is received. One can ask for the injection at pharmacies and medical clinics. Dr Campbell advises women who receive the injections to continue pap smear tests throughout their lifetime, to keep track of your health. The Department of Health and Education have identified the importance of this preventative approach and launched the HPV-

injections campaign in schools this year. Parents who are not yet aware of this must contact their children’s schools to find out when and how it will be implemented. Breast cancer is also one of the most common female cancers. Unlike cervical cancer, breast cancer symptoms are easier to identify and it may not be too late when symptoms are spotted. The best way to ensure that potential breast cancer warning signs are identified early on, is to conduct self-examinations from the age 20 on a regular basis (once a week at least). Consult your local doctor to show you the correct examination procedure and make sure to look out for the following: • Lumps in the breast and lumps below the armpit • Nipple retraction • Uneven breast sizes • Nipple discharge (especially bloody discharge) • Discoloration (in most cases indicating a very advanced cancer). Dr Campbell advises to consult a doctor yearly for a proper check-up. You may have missed warning signs during self-examination, which the doctor can spot.

Every little girl dreams of being a beauty queen, and on Friday16 May the Reach for a Dream Foundation, in conjunction with Emperors Palace, made this dream come true for 20 very deserving little girls. Reach for a Dream and Emperors Palace selected 20 little girls, who suffer from life-threatening illnesses, and took them out of the hospital environment for a day to enjoy an entire day of pampering. The girls decorated cupcakes and were properly pampered, after which they had the opportunity to parade on a red carpet. Every girl was crowned with a tiara and a sash, which dubbed them ‘Queen for a Day”. The girls also had the opportunity to enjoy the spotlight on a throne alongside Miss South Africa 2014 finalist, Tshegofatso Monggae. Actress Hlubi Mboya and Peermont Corporate Affairs & CSI Executive, Vusi Zwane, paid these brave girls a visit and offered a helping hand with the pampering and decorating. The aim of the event was to make every little girl feel special and beautiful and to ease the burden of their illnesses for a day. The girls concluded their day of sheer royal bliss at the Emperors Palace’s Primavera Restaurant, where they enjoyed a scrumptious meal for lunch.

Understanding the power of the POPI Act * Supplied by Denisha Pather The marketing space is evolving at a rapid pace, with a clear shift in mindsets as well as a distinct level of governance in the way marketing is practiced. The South African National Government published the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI) in the Government Gazette on 26 November 2013. Kirstin Harris, Marketing Fanatics Digital Specialist, recently delivered an informative presentation at the Ekurhuleni Business Initiative, covering the important aspects of the POPI Act and the significant impact it bears on individuals and businesses from a marketing perspective. According to Harris, the aim of the Act is to determine how information is collected and processed, and to establish an informational regulator to regulate the collection of the information, the flow of information across South African borders and to give rights to South Africans receiving unsolicited communication. Consumer intelligence and buying power is changing the way in which companies market their products and services; the POPI Act now places businesses under legal obligation to take responsibility for collecting, processing and using, storing and sharing customer information. As per the South Africa legal system failure to comply with the POPI Act will result in legal ramifications. Kirstin

adds “the penalties for failing to comply is a possible 10 year jail term or a 10 million rand fine”. Harris further elaborated on practical everyday examples in which we divulge our information without ensuring we ask the correct questions: “With reference to opening bank accounts we provide a vast amount of information, yet we neglect to understand how this information will be stored and used in the future. The POPI Act now gives individuals the right to ask businesses and service providers how will our information be used?” Ideally compared to basic rights enjoyed by all South Africans, the POPI Act is applicable to any person or business: “if you receive or give any personal information to another party then POPI applies to you,” Harris explained. With the number of laws and acts being passed, the relevance to individuals and businesses is often lost in the legal noise. It is important to understand the bearing this law has on individuals, as it will highlight the implications of having your personal information exploited; identity theft being one of the risks. According to Kirstin “the POPI Act is fast changing the way responsible marketing agencies conduct their daily business and creating great opportunities to engage in meaningful marketing activities”.

Harris listed 8 information protection principles for compliance: 1. Accountability – Companies are now accountable for overseeing their compliance. 2. Processing limitation – consent and purpose. This simply means processing of information or sharing of information has to be done under explicit consent from the individual in question. Information collected should be in relation to the purpose. 3. Purpose specification – Individuals should be fully aware of what their information will be used for. 4. Further processing limitation – This principle further highlights the legal obligation businesses have to use the personal information for specific and legitimate purposes. 5. Information quality – Organisations are required to ensure that personal information that they process is complete accurate, not misleading and updated were necessary. 6. Openness – Individuals must be informed of what information is being held by specific entities 7. Security Safeguards – Organisations are required to ensure that all personal information is kept secure and should any information be compromised affected persons should be notified immediately. 8. Data subject participation – what you say goes. After having handed information over

to a business you are able to request any changes or deletion.

Successful Angling

Hoërskool Oosterlig en Hoërskool Elspark skrum. Hoërskool Oosterlig se toeskouers was in rep en roer op Saterdag 24 Mei toe die 0/15 rugbyspan teen Hoërskool Elspark op die veld te staan gekom het. Oosterlig het die wedstryd loshande gewen met ‘n eindtelling van 49-0. Oosterlig se 0/15 spannetjie het verlede jaar hul reputasie as sterk mededingers onder die skole gekry toe hulle die Medium Skole Beeldtrofee gewen het, en met Saterdag se wedstryd teen buurskool Elspark het hulle die toeskouers nog verder beïndruk. Oosterlig se rugbymanne het onophoudelik aangeval, terwyl Elspark hard aan die verdedig was. Nadat die eerste drie gedruk is, het Oosterlig net die nodige hupstoot gekry om daarna nog ‘n hele paar ferm drieë in te ryg. Die span se afrigter, Bryan Bradford, is baie

trots op sy span: “Dit was ‘n goeie game, maar ek gee die krediet aan die seuns wat die harde werk gedoen het die week en dis hoekom die resultate saam met ons werk. Omdat dit ‘n local derbey was, twee buurskole het teen mekaar gespeel, het hulle mekaar fisies aangevat. Soos wat die tyd verloop het, het die druk teveel geword en toe het dit goed gegaan. Daar gaan groot teenstadners wees; ons volgende teenstanders volgende week is Hugenote en hulle het nou die Groot Skole Beeldtrofee verloor verlede jaar. So dit gaan ‘n tawwe game wees,” het Bradford na die wedstryd gesê. Bradforf sê dat hierdie wedstryd ter voorbereiding was vir die groot wedstryd teen Hugenote hierdie week. Dit sal die eerste keer wees dat Oosterlig en Hugenote teen mekaar speel.

Jansen klop Kempsies in Valke-liga

Dr. EG Jansen se Delano Kotze speel voluit. Dr. EG Jansen se Eerste Rugbyspan het op Saterdag 17 Mei die eerste tree gegee om die Valke- en Beeldtrofeë suksesvol te verdedig. Jansen het teen Hoërskool Kempton Park op Kempies se veld te staan gekom en hul mededingers 33-27 geklop. Jansen het teen halftyd met 19-12 voorgeloop. Met die telling wat die heeltyd wipplank gery het, was dit moeilik om 'n wenner te voorspel. Kempies se heelagter Marnus Gruber het drie minute voor die einde oorgeduik vir die moontlike wendrie. EG Jansen se geduld is weereens in 'n druk situasie getoets. Jansies se kalmte en veggees

in die laaste minute van die wedstryd het veroorsaak dat die wendrie gedruk is, nadat die amptelike tyd verstreke is. Met die eindtelling 33 teen 27 in Jansies se guns het EG Jansen Kempies vir die tweede keer vanjaar op hulle tuisveld geklop. In die vorige ontmoeting het Jansen die Kempies met ‘n eindtelling van 39-0 gewen. Puntemakers: EG Jansen - Delano Kotze (2 drieë en 4 vervyfskoppe); Xander Crause (1 drie); Edwin Jansen (1drie) en Juan Botha (1 drie). Kempton Park - Juanrè Van Der Walt (1 drie); Christopher Schimper (2 drieë) en Marnus Gruber (1 drie; 1 strafskop en 2 doelskoppe).

Ready for Comrades 2014 On Sunday 26 May, the Boksburg Athletic Club athletes were hard at work preparing for Comrades 2014, which starts in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday 1 June, and ends in Durban. The group of runners gathered at the club from as early as 06:15 to embark on the Chairman’s Run of approximately 10km. This was the club’s last run together before Comrades. Afterwards the runners enjoyed a breakfast and prize-giving to motivate each other for the big day. “Our club is one of the biggest clubs in the East Rand going to Comrades. The week before Comrades we always do a little run, where the chairman leads the run, just for the runners to run that last bit of time together. It’s very chilled; a walk-run to keep the group together. We also give our Comrades runners a little good luck gift. And that’s the purpose of today, just to build that comradeship that you find on Comrades routes,” said Sheree Rogers, Boksburg Athletic Club Chairman. According to Rogers, most of the runners aim to break personal records, but there are a few runners going for silver medals, and one of their runners is completing his 20th Comrades run this year. One of the club’s best runners, Karel Burger, has won seven silver medals and runs his 8th run on Sunday. He has trained 2500km since January and believes that the Chairman’s Run is good motivation: “It gets your head in the right place,” he said. Rogers would like to wish all the runners best of luck for Sunday.
