Celebrating Tata together as a nation

THE LOVE FOR MADIBA: Fourth Street in Houghton on Friday morning after South Africa learned of the death of Nelson Mandela. *Photo taken by Chantal Thurlby.

Laurelle Williams laurelle@tametimes.co.za Fourth Street in Houghton was packed on Friday morning 6 December, with South Africans and foreigners alike paying their respects and tributes to former president Nelson Mandela. The former statesman(95) passed away on 5 December around 20:50 in his Houghton home. It was reported that he was surrounded by his family at the time of his passing. tame TIMES went to Fourth Street to capture history in the making on Friday. Monica Supra, Alberton editor said she really felt proud to be a part of it and that it was a beautiful experience. “We all came together to celebrate his life,” Supra said. The Presidency declared this past Sunday, 8 December a national day of prayer and reflection. President Jacob Zuma called upon all South Africans to gather in halls, churches, mosques, temples, synagogues and in their homes for prayer services and meditation, reflecting on the life of Madiba and his contribution to our country and the world. The main activities of the national week of mourning are as follows: The official memorial service will be held on 10

December at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg. From 11 to 13 December, the remains of our beloved Madiba will lie at the seat of government, the Union Buildings in Pretoria, where he served as the first President of this young democracy. During these days, official memorial services will also be held in all provinces and regions. Details of the memorial services will be published on www. mandela.gov.za. An official state funeral will be held and former president Nelson Mandela will be buried at Qunu in the Eastern Cape on 15 December. Jacob Zuma thanked all South Africans for the dignity, respect and the support that has been provided to the Mandela family, from the period of Madiba’s illness to his eventual passing. tame TIMES staff lit candles and wrote personal messages to Madiba in honour of him at the tame TIMES office on Michelle Avenue, Randhart on Friday. tame TIMES’ prayers are with the Mandela family during this sad time as well as the citizens of South Africa. Let’s stand together and carry on the legacy Mandela has left. Rest in Peace our beloved Tata.

119 663 Christmas gifts collected

HAPPINESS: Children from Lerato Educational Centre receive their Santa Shoebox gifts. Thanks to the generosity of people from all over South Africa, and many companies and residents of JHB South, the Santa Shoebox Project (SSP) broke all previous records by collecting a whopping 119 663 festive season gifts this year. The gifts are for children from vulnerable social backgrounds in more than 1000 orphanages,

children’s homes and care centres across the country, and as far as Namibia. The 2013 project ended off on a high note, when the Santa Shoebox celebrations took place at centres in each of the nine provinces. Connecting people through the joy of giving, the theme this year was ‘Reaching the Rural Child’. The focus was on increasing support to caregiving facilities in small towns and farming communities all over South Africa, and to take on board many more orphanages and homes in all areas. Forty percent of the Santa Shoeboxes collected at the larger centres in bigger cities were specifically allocated to the rural areas, where the need is particularly great. There has also been substantial growth in terms of support for many more remote satellite centres in all provinces. Other major sponsors this year included Aspire Solutions, Fairheads Trust, BulkSMS, Mpact, and KingJames, to name a few, as well as FIVESTAR PR, the agency that has provided PR services on a pro-bono basis since the project was started in 2007. This year a number of Santa Shoebox Celebrity Ambassadors, such as Jenny Morris, the Giggling Gourmet, and Miss Earth South Africa 2013 Ashanti Mbanga, put their efforts behind the project to motivate and inspire their social media followers to join up as donors.

Bringing smiles to children Children from Fremar Christian Centre for Help and Rehabilitation enjoyed a Christmas party on 30 November at Word of Life Ministries in Bellavista. They also got to share in the Sunday school’s closing. “The Santa Shoebox Project was held for the children and we had such a good response from people. The kids really enjoyed themselves and had a fabulous time. We as a community church do hope that we can do much more for the children. We hope to get the centre where the kids live painted and even a play area fitted,” Evelyn Moonsamy from Word of Life Ministries said.

PRESENTS FOR YOU: Father Christmas handed out gifts to all the children.

When standing requires falling By Nieto Hernandez This is a week of many firsts, so you can imagine my struggle with a topic to address. Thuli’s leaked Nkandla report, the commencement of e-toll, 16 days of activism against violence perpetrated against women and children, the Patriotic Alliance is a week old, Eskom CEO Brian Dames resigned, and lastly the news of the passing of a world icon. As this is the last time we will interact this year on this platform, I’ve decided to touch on the one issue which touches us all (or at least should) - the law. This week I’ve chosen to premise our discussion on the following quotes by Martin Luther King Jr: “One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.” “An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.” In a democratic situation, the vote is power, the vote gives power and power makes laws. The one thing many voters never consider is that your vote in reality means you agree with decisions of the party or the individual you choose to delegate your power to. Delegating your power to this party or individual means you agree with their current and future decisions (assuming the voter has spent some time with the policies of the group they choose to empower, otherwise the voter is an irresponsible voter), and lastly it means you believe that the next person will not be harmed by the decisions and laws instituted by the choice you make. The law currently is under immense pressure, being challenged by resistant citizens. History has many examples of civil disobediences that have led to the will of the people forcing governments to listen. Some examples would include the demonstrations that followed Rosa Parks, standing for what she believed was unjust by refusing to stand; and the non-co-operation through civil solidarity which saw the Berlin wall brought down and Germany united. The greatest and most relevant example of falling in order to stand is the life of our late statesman Nelson Mandela, who submitted himself to the punishment which came with defying an unjust law (see insert on the life and times of Madiba). Martin Luther makes a valid point with the first quote. However, dear citizen, it does not end with the disobedience to the law. There are consequences, and those are made clear by Luther’s second quote. One who chooses civil disobedience chooses to disobey power and should be prepared to face the repercussions of their actions, whatever they may be. His second statement actually implies that if you are not ready to fall, rather don’t stand at all. Let’s chat, send me your views via e-mail at voice@tametimes.co.za or tweet @ tametimes or @nietovoice. Have a wonderful holiday and let’s meet again in 2014.

Golden gift for SOJO Amy-Mae Campbell 011 862 8500

NEW SOJO BAKKIE: Devashini Govender, Thomas Pillay, Nicky Vakaloudis, Richard Bennet, Peter Soester and David Maake. Gold Reef City (GRC) donated a double cab bakkie to SOJO Business and Tourism Forum on 4 December. SOJO represents eight precincts in Johannesburg South and they are responsible for urban management in the area. Their duties include cleaning the streets, reporting potholes in the roads or broken traffic lights, and ensuring that any dilapidated infrastructure is attended to. These responsibilities require a lot of travelling within the area, and SOJO staff were in dire need of reliable transport. According to SOJO CEO Nicky Vakaloudis, the previous bakkie, which was also donated by GRC, is about ten years old and was deteriorating. It was a small 1.4 litre 1995 Ford Bantam with over 300 000 kilometres on the clock. SOJO battled to drive it, especially on tough roads, and it consequently became very difficult for them to fulfil their duties in the area.

Gold Reef City’s Security Manager Thomas Pillay heard SOJO’s plight. Pillay consulted with Gold Reef City General Manager Mike Page and together they agreed to donate their 2008 GWM double cab to SOJO. With brand new tyres, the bakkie has less than 45 000km, making it practically new. Vakaloudis expressed her gratitude for the donation, “We are extremely delighted and very surprised. It’s a huge upgrade. We are the eyes and ears for the community. Especially when we drive into areas that aren’t well maintained, it is difficult to manage. Now we have a 4x4 [that] will conquer all our problems.” SOJO chairman Richard Bennet is very pleased with the continued support from Gold Reef City. SOJO will use the new bakkie mainly to transport SOJO cleaners and infrastructure management staff around the area.

JRA turnaround time is questionable *Information supplied by SOJO. At the beginning of the year Johannesburg Road Agency issued a statement concerning their turnaround time. When SOJO first read this, they were not sure whether to feel amazed or delighted. Being the start of a new year, they decided to receive the news on a positive note with the understanding that this department has endured many “bumpy roads” over the past decade because of collapsed internal management and inability to get the job done. “We are now at the end of the year and sadly need to report that JRA again delivered empty promises that are highly costly to our business environment and community. One such area that is suffering extreme business loss and setbacks is Rosherville Road in City

Deep. This road is one of the main inland import and export hubs which have not received proper road maintenance for the past three years,” Nicky Vakaloudis, CEO of SOJO said. According to Vakaloudis the last time potholes in this road were repaired was last year. “Unfortunately JRA have only patchrepaired the potholes, which now clearly illustrate the collapse of the road due to the pressure of the heavy trucks. However, our endless pleading falls on deaf ears. Whether we speak to senior management or to the operators of this department, nothing gets done. Our problem reporting list reflects a total of 273 problems reported for this year, of which only 99 have been repaired to date. A shocking 36% performance rate. The article reflecting their turnaround time is laughable,” Vakaloudis added.

JHB South teachers scooped three Provincial National Teacher awards Congratulations: Ms Mashile (Meredale Primary) Ms Watson (Glenvista High) Mr Antoniou (Mondeor High) The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) through the Provincial National Teacher Awards, paid homage to principals and educators, who have demonstrated excellence, innovation and dedication in their work during the 2013 academic year. The department celebrated and honoured outstanding employees who have during the course of this year demonstrated remarkable and exceptional commitment in their roles as public servants. Meredale Primary, Mondeor High and Glenvista High can be proud as Ms Mashile, Mr Antoniou and Ms Watson received awards. Ms Mashile (Meredale), a foundation phase teacher and Head of Department, came third in the category Excellence in Primary School Teaching (PST). GDE comments were that Ms

Mashile’s classroom planning and recording skills are good, that she accommodates learners with different needs, and that she possesses good leadership skills. Mr Antoniou (Mondeor), a Life Science teacher for 15 years and Head of Department was awarded Excellence in Secondary School Teaching (SST). It was said that he enjoys being in the classroom so much that teaching does not feel like work. He puts in a lot of time and effort to ensure that he is well prepared for lessons and combines in depth subject knowledge with passion for teaching. His caring and compassionate leadership is an inspiration to others. Ms Watson (Glenvista) has been a Life Science teacher for two years and was awarded in Excellence in Science. It was said that she is energetic and is an enthusiastic young teacher with an abundance of subject knowledge. She inspires and is innovative. She integrates technology into her lessons with excellent slide shows and video clips and her learners’ 2012 Grade 12 results were above the national average.

Gauteng’s rainbow Tree of light: nature on parade

remembering those who lost their lives to chronic illnesses Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo, in conjunction with The Star and Hospice, held the spectacular Tree of Light that was switched on at Johannesburg Zoo on 1 December. The evening was held to remember all who passed on due to chronic illnesses. Invited guests included Executive Mayor of the City of Joburg, Clr Mpho Parks Tau, Members of the Mayoral Committee, Section 79 Committee, CoJ officials as well as community representatives. The evening saw many families picnicking while waiting for the much anticipated Tree of Light to be switched on. The magnificent scene saw many people in awe of the beauty of the lights in the peaceful zoo.

Gauteng’s magnificent and most colourful carnival street parade took place on 7 and 8 December. Gauteng (Provincial Government) and the City of Joburg collaborated to host the 9th edition of the biggest and most flamboyant street parade of the province. This year over 21 000 participants took part in the 5.6km parade with magnificent costumes, colourful displays, enthralling dance and lively sounds. The parade started at Johannesburg Stadium and ran through Hilbrow, Braamfontein, the JHB CBD and back to the stadium. Leading the parade was a provincial float measuring over 5 meters in height. Joburg, Tshwane, Sedibeng, Merafong and Ekurhuleni were headed by mini floats. The parade included troupes from Botswana, Namibia, DRC and locally from the North West. It was a display of art, choreography, costumes, colour and sound. As part of the razzmatazz over 400 high-performance vehicles and motorbikes were part of the street parade to amplify the carnival mood throughout the city. MEC for Sport, Arts Culture and Recreation Lebogang

Maile said, “This year’s Gauteng Carnival is the provincial launch pad of the celebration of 20 years of freedom and democracy. It is more than fun and the showcasing of talent, it is also a means to celebrate the cosmopolitan and rainbow nature of Gauteng. It is also about remembering and honouring Africa’s heroes who brought it freedom and democracy. We know that though a lot still needs to be achieved, we need to celebrate ourselves and the achievements made thus far,” added Maile Held under the theme ‘Celebrating Africa’s Legacy’, the parade is aimed at recognising the role of Africa’s freedom fighters. It is also aimed at celebrating Gauteng for being the preferred home to fellow Africans who come to seek better opportunities. Over 1000 job opportunities have been created for production of the 2013 carnival, including seamstresses, sound production, welders, choreographers, designers and many more. Some of the service providers used have been trained and developed through the carnival.

MAGNIFICENT SIGHT: The Tree of Light.

Small change makes a big change *Information supplied by Cotlands. The Cotlands collection tin initiative is almost as old as the 77-year-old organisation itself, and is a familiar site in stores across Johannesburg. These small cans of hope enable Cotlands to provide children with access to early learning resources and opportunities. Sadly, Cotlands’ tin collection project has recently been damaged by rumours that the organisation and/or the project have closed, but this is certainly not the case. Former tin reps Gavern Cradick and Ron and Dot Fennell resigned from Cotlands to assist another organisation to get their tin project off the ground, but Cotlands has replaced them with dedicated and passionate staffers who are keen to get their tins back to full strength. While a 10 cent coin may not seem like a lot to some, each donation contributes towards providing a child with the care they need to thrive in their formative years. The tin initiative is vital to the survival of the organisation as the money received goes directly to improving the lives of children who have already been exposed to difficult situations. To all store owners who have hosted and continued to host Cotlands tins, a very big thank you. Thank you to everyone who places their small change in Cotlands tins. Know that you are part of the bigger community that is helping to improve the lives of thousands of children. Please consider hosting a tin at your store’s till point, at your school or at your church. For more information please contact Kelsley Sharpley: kelsley@cotlands. org or 011 683 7200/0.

Ai julle, die jaar is nou op ‘n einde en so groet ons 2013. Ons moes ook ons geliefde Oud-President Nelson Mandela groet. Ek het egter beleef dat al is totsiens nie maklik nie, is dit nie noodwendig die einde nie. Ek het gesien hoe ‘n nasie bymekaar kom om Madiba se legende voort te laat leef. Nataniël het eenmaal gesê dat al wat hy op sy grafsteen wil hê is die woorde: “Hy het gesing”. Elke skoot wanneer ek en Gysie deur die tuin by die kerkie in Belvidere stap, lees ek die grafstene. Dan dink ek nou weer by myself, wat is dit wat ek wil hê moet op my grafsteen staan? Hoe wil ek hê mense moet my onthou? Nie almal kan ‘n Madibalegende wees nie. Wanneer ek nou stil raak en dink, hoop ek mense sal my onthou as ‘n vrou van wysheid. Een wat kon luister en raad gee wanneer dit nodig was. So wanneer my mense my groet, hoop ek hulle dink aan my met ‘n glimlag en dink, “Ou Trixie sou geweet het wat om te doen.” Ek hoop mense onthou my soos ek my oorlede ouma onthou – iemand met ‘n fyn sin vir humor, baie raad en wysheid en altyd gereed om te luister. 2013 was ‘n jaar om te onthou, van uiterste blydskap en goeie ervaringe, tot die bewoënheid van groet. Ek groet julle nou met ‘n traan in die oog en ‘n glimlag op die gesig en wens julle almal ‘n Geseënde Kersfees en ‘n voorspoedige 2014 toe! TIP: Maak jou nalatenskap een wat mense gaan onthou!

As the working year comes to an end and this being our last edition for 2013, it is a sad reality to have to report on the loss of South Africa’s national father, Nelson Mandela. In the same breath though, it is an absolute honour and an amazing privilege to be able to devote this last edition to Tata. I was woken up from a sms by my father (who is generally technologically behind) on Thursday night at 00:30. The message read ‘Nelson passed away’. I immediately went to Twitter and read all updates, switched on the TV and listened to President Jacob Zuma announce the news. It finally became a reality, the great Baobab Tree had fallen. Friday morning’s weather was grey and gloomy and as I said that morning, “Today’s weather reflects how we feel as a country. A great man, Tata, closed his eyes and is resting in heaven.” As I look back at this year, one thing is evident: change is constant and nothing we ever do will be able to stop it. The only thing

that remains is God. God’s love and grace are forever available and I delight in that. Madiba was a man who fought for what he believed in, no matter the consequence. I pray that all South Africans will do the same and fight for what they believe in. To my fellow Christians that would be our Saviour- Jesus Christ. Even though we mourn together as a nation it is now our turn to walk in Madiba’s footsteps and make him proud. A tweet by Howard Dembovsky encapsulates it all, “If every South African man can be just one tenth of the man Nelson Mandela was, we’ll be just fine. Hamba kahle Madiba.” I thank every tame TIMES reader for supporting the work we do and adding their contribution. I thank all our clients for doing business with us, without you tame TIMES wouldn’t be. I thank all tame TIMES staff members making the tame team what it is. Every single one of you plays an important role. Personally, I would like to thank Stephanie Tepper who designs the JHB South paper. Your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.

Laurelle Williams I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe New Year. My wish is that everyone is able to spend quality time with their family and rejoice in what we as a nation have been blessed with. May 2014 be the year where you become the person you were meant to be. All my love, Lolo

Their love has grown too cold Talk to Him

Norma Rudham writes: Dear Mr Hernandez

I found your article Christians eat Christians very interesting and I must say that I have never previously heard of Cliffmas Carols or Gareth Cliff; but on reading your article, which was very clear, I think I gained a correct understanding. Firstly, I believe the points you made were completely correct, fair and unbiased and I congratulate you on managing to express these views in a general manner without endeavouring to support any particular group or religious body, which obviously you cannot do being the writer of a newspaper column. I am a Christian and I think you have already expressed my views in your article. However, from a Christian point of view I would like to add to what you have already said that the Bible clearly tells us that in the end times “the love of many will grow cold and many will fall away from the faith, but he who perseveres to the end will be saved” and “when the Son of Man comes will he even find faith on earth”.   This appears to apply to your statement that

www.tametimes.co.za

Christians do not stand against this type of thing - for some their love has grown too cold to bother. We are also told that in the end times family members will betray each other to the death, so your statement about certain Christians siding with this person is perhaps the beginning of the division that is to come.  I don’t want to write a book although there is much more I could say, so lastly, when the Anti-Christ comes he will try to stand in the Temple and replace God and demand that people worship him as God.    Someone or something else instead of Christ. The above is merely a personal viewpoint based on my understanding of the scriptures and I am not attempting to present it as the viewpoint of the Christian Church or to start a religious debate. These days many people who claim to be Christians have no real understanding of what that term actually means and, in addition, many people are just obsessed with themselves and what they consider to be their rights and the rights of others to do just about anything they like.

anywhere Joan Hartnick writes:

Hi Nieto, I felt exactly the same as our fellow Christians. I always thought that because Jesus defeated the world and death, why fight non-believers on His behalf. But a while back I learnt that we must defend the Gospel of Christ and not be ashamed of it. With regard to prayer rooms, we and not a building or room are the church. We can talk to Him anywhere, so let’s pray for our fellow brothers and sisters. Shalom

Village of Hope Ethemba Village, situated in Walkerville, exists to raise future leaders within our beautiful nation. It is their mission to be able to take vulnerable, hurt widows and orphans and, in accordance with Isaiah 61:1-1, and love and nurture them within a ‘Village of Hope and Love’. An open day was held recently to launch this great initiative. Potential sponsors got the opportunity to see what the village is all about. A quantum kombi was donated to the village, and the children enjoyed a breakfast and a fun day. A widowed mother is assessed through a social worker and is incorporated into the village on the long term. Ten fully equipped homes will be given to the mothers to house eight orphaned children, which she will adopt as her own and raise to be heroes. “Children are our future and we aim to equip them with a loving and sound family environment, allowing them to grow into influential adults affecting the community and the nation. This in turn will promote team effort that will encourage the future leaders to live with one another in harmony and be able to laugh throughout the coming years as God builds our nation. They’ll be able to live life to the fullest each and every day,” said Jason Sutherland, one of the Ethemba Village directors said. Ethemba’s dream is to develop a selfsustaining village whereby the mothers have the ability to grow fresh produce for

Patrick Monyobo patrick@tametimes.co.za

themselves as well as a system whereby they will be able to earn a small income for themselves. They would also like to develop a Skills Development Program, where the mothers and older children are given the skills to produce marketing items for the sustainability of the village, such as jewellery, aprons, child care overalls, and prayer. The village will adopt the green thinking, applying solar energy, solar geysers, recycling rain water and wind turbines and hydroponics. How can you get involved? You can sponsor: A child for R1000 a month A household for R10 000 a month A cluster of 9 households for R90 000 a month A teacher/ social worker for R10 000 a month Build a house for R150 000 Furnish a house for R50 000 Volunteers: You can help by providing skills, help building a house or by doing general voluntary work.

Glenvista High School held their matric dance on 30 November at Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg with the after party held at Nicci Beach. It was a great celebration with exams finally finished. Friends reminisced on their school years as they celebrated the end of their school careers.

Glenanda Primary School’s grade 6 learners collected teddies for the Teddy Bear Clinic. Over 354 teddies were collected. In true family spirit parents, grandparents and friends joined in and even knitted teddy bears. The Teddy Bear Clinic for Abused Children (TTBC) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to ensuring abused children are protected and rehabilitated. Visit www.ttbc.org.za for more information.

Gauteng School Sport Awards to be re-launched Gauteng Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation MEC Lebogang Maile has promised to make sure that excellence in school sports is properly recognised with the re-establishment of the Gauteng School Sport Awards. The official relaunch took place on 9 December at Wits University, in cooperation with the Gauteng Department of Education. The provincial school sport awards were last held in 2002. MEC Maile has since expressed his intentions to host the awards into one of the important events consistent with the annual glory of the Gauteng Sport Awards. Maile said, “In line with our renewed commitment to school sport in general, these awards will be used as a tool to promote, reward and celebrate excellence at school sport level. Some of our celebrated champion

athletes such as Olympians Chad Le Clos, Khotso Mokoena and Cameron van der Burg, footballers Simphiwe Tshabalala, Senzo Meyiwa and others, as well as Wheelchair Tennis star Lucas Sithole are among the abundant talent that started shining from school level, and an example of the future stars that the awards will seek to honour and recognise in schools.” MEC Maile introduced the categories to be awarded as well as the nomination procedure, which will include awards for both Primary and Secondary school levels. Nominations for the School Sport Awards opened on 9 December and closes on 24 WILD ANIMALS: Front: Khanya Senyathi, Tshegofatso Motsiri, Atlega Mogosetsi, January 2014.

Best Dressed Year-end party for Bellavista Computer Club at The Hill The Bellavista Computer Club held their year-end party on 6 December. Children from Orange Farm and Bellavista attended and celebrated their year’s work and dedication to the club. DJ Bradz-La Muzik, Mr Fourie, tame TIMES JHB South editor Laurelle Williams and a representative of City of Johannesburg were guest speakers. DJ Bradz-La Muzik (17) is a product of Bellavista Computer Club. He has attended the educational and motivational club since he was 10 years old. With his success, it proves the good work that the club is doing. Being the day that South Africans woke up to the news of the passing of Nelson Mandela, Williams dedicated her speech to the former president. “Even though we as a country

mourn Tata’s death together, we need to celebrate his life and be thankful to God for blessing us with such a great man who has changed our country for the better. We all need to now walk in his footsteps and aim for peace, respect, love and equality,” Williams said. She also applauded the children for choosing to attend the computer club instead of playing in the street. “This shows that you want to achieve success in your life and I pray that all of your dreams come true.” The children presented their own song and dance pieces and each received a sling bag as a present from the club. Twenty-five children received certificates to mark their attendance and dedication to the club.

For the cookies: - 180g soft butter - 200g caster sugar - 2 large eggs - 2tsp ground ginger - 1/2tsp ground nutmeg - 2tsp ground cinnamon - 400g flour - 1 tsp baking powder - 1/2 tsp salt - Cookie cutters For the icing: - 3 cups sifted icing sugar - 2 egg whites - A squeeze of lemon juice - Artificial colouring of your choice and edible gold balls to decorate.

- Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. - Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. - Add the spices, flour, baking powder and salt and beat well. - Wrap the dough in cling wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes. - When the dough has been chilled, roll it out on a floured surface and cut into the shapes of your choice. - Bake at 180°C for 10-15 minutes until just golden. - Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before decorating.

Beat the egg whites and icing sugar for about 3-5 minutes until it is thick and glossy. Add the lemon juice and gel the colouring (liquid will thin it out too much) and beat again. Place the mix in a small piping-/or sandwich bag (snip off a corner) and decorate the cookies as desired. Sprinkle with edible glitter and gold balls and allow the icing to harden.

Boxing legend Baby Jake dies

Boxing legend Jacob “Baby Jake” Matlala (51) died this past Saturday (7 December), in the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg  Hospital. The Winchester Hills resident had been battling an illness since 2010. He leaves behind a wife and two children. Matlala was the shortest ever world champion, standing at just 1.47 meters. He won four flyweight titles from the World Boxing Organisation (WBO), World Boxing Union (WBU) and International Boxing Association (IBA), with a record of 53 wins in 68 fights. The boxer has been described as a great legend and a humble family man who was not only praised for his career in the ring but also for the work he did to uplift the poor. Former boxer Brian Mitchell said, “It’s shocking to think that he died a day or two after the great Nelson Mandela. It’s shocking because I was at boxing tournaments with Baby Jake Matlala and Nelson Mandela. Matlala was a legend to SA boxing.” It has been said that after the first meeting Baby Jake had with Madiba he was motivated in all the fights that followed it. He later said “All

I need is to remember that Madiba is watching me fight.”Baby Jake also said “Madiba came and drank tea in my home and I am simply invincible.” Baby Jake presented his WBU belt to Nelson Mandela after his final fight against Juan Herrera in 2002. Hollywood actor Will Smith was present at the boxing match as well. Nelson Mandela once joked that he would never make an appearance at Soweto Stadium if Baby Jake was there because he wasn’t used to being upstaged. tame TIMES send the deepest condolences to the Matlala family and pray for strength in this difficult time.
