Dail crowned McDonald’s Kathorus Most Brilliant Kid Lebo Mosolodi The third edition of the McDonald’s Kathorus Most Brilliant Kid competition set a new benchmark with 21 contestants giving their all to reach the competition’s final stage as judges remained firm in their decisions. The 2013 overall competition winner is Nompumelelo Dail, a grade 7 learner from Thembimfundo Primary School in Vosloorus. Dail won a McDonald’s one-year school bursary valued at R10 000, a smart phone and a goodie bag. He said, “It was the first time I took part in such a cut-throat competition and winning it was a bonus. All the participants did their best because it was not easy. My long-term goal is to pursue a career as a medical doctor.” Nompumelelo’s uncle, Mpumelelo Dail applauded his niece’s achievement. “She must take the experience gained during the competition phases with her as she moves forward in life. Competition was tough and it could have gone either way as the three finalists pulled out all the stops,” said Mpumelelo. Dail’s teacher from Thembimfundo Primary School, Kenneth Manyere described their star performer as a brilliant kid and said the school is proud of her achievement. Manyere said Dail’s victory laid a solid foundation for their

school as they prepare to take part in various competitions in the near future. The event founder, Portia Nondo congratulated all the contestants on the work well done during the preparation stages. She also commended the team of judges for the work done by them throughout the competition. Department of Education representative, Pinkie Mokgosi reminded the parents that it takes a village to raise a child. She said the competition was a learning curve to fellow teachers and hopefully next time children will be fully prepared. The other winners of the competition were: the runner-up Tebogo Ngwenya, a grade 7 learner from Lungisani Primary School in Katlehong, won a laptop; and the second runner-up Katlego Mabaso, a grade 5 learner from Phumula Gardens in Phumula, won a desktop computer.

Taxi war claims two lives Charity Moyo

We greet you all with the exciting news of tame TIMES winning the best print media category at the 2013 Ekurhuleni Community Awards for the second time in a row. We would like to thank our readers and advertisers for believing in us and voting for us. We also congratulate other winners in the awards and encourage them to continue with their good work in rendering quality services to the community. This is a thrilling edition with the MacDonald’s Kathorus Most Brilliant Kid competition reaching the finals. Well done to learners who participated in the competition and walked away with great prizes. Thanks to MacDonald’s Vosloorus for sponsoring the event. However, on a sad note, Orlando Pirates lost the CAF Champions cup against Al-Ahly at the Arab Contractors Stadium. In as much as they did not win, their effort in managing to reach the final level was applauded and we hope that they have learnt from their mistakes. Charity Moyo, the editor of tame Let’s meet again next week; we hope you continue TIMES (Kathorus) to enjoy our newspaper. Cheers for now.

Mduduzi Nkosi, Katlehong People’s Taxi Association (Kapta) patrol car driver and David Bougaard, Greater Alberton Taxi Association (GATA) member were shot and killed during a taxi war between the two associations at Greenfields recently. According to a member of GATA, a witness who requested to remain anonymous the fight was over the K146 route from Palmridge, Edenpark, Greenfields to Johannesburg which they claim it belong to them. He said some members of GATA went to barricade the road not to allow the Kapta cars to use the route. He said the Kapta members came in numbers and started shooting. He said Bougaard was shot twice and he tried to run inside his car where he collapsed and died on the scene. He added that some Kapta members involved ran away leaving their marked vehicles on the scene. Hennie Maile, public relations officer for GATA said they intend to meet with Kapta to solve the problem.

Kapta executive member, representing the office who also requested to remain anonymous said, “We don’t know the cause of the fight. GATA instructed us not to use K146 route when going to Johannesburg and they were stopping our cars at Eden Park robots. Our members used an alternative route via Klipriver and GATA members also attacked them stopping us from using the route. We feel that we are harassed and we have lost a patrol car driver.” Captain Mega Ndobe, Communications Officer for Katlehong Police Station said, “Police are still investigating the incidents and no arrests have been made. GATA and Kapta members should learn to resolve their issues amicable as no one is above the law and has a right to shot anybody. If they can’t solve their problems they should seek assistance from the relevant boards.” David Bougaard was laid to rest at Kromvlei cemetery and Mduduzi Nkosi at his home in Swaziland.

Community educated Suspect on the loose about breast cancer Lebo Mosolodi

Department of Social Development Thokoza branch hosted a breast cancer awareness campaign at their office. The main objectives of the event was making the community aware of breast cancer and to make sure that they check their breasts regularly. Veronica Mtsokoane, supervisor of the Thokoza Social Development office said they want the members of the community to be aware of breast, cervical and prostate cancer. “The symptoms of cancer are different depending on individuals. One of the breast cancer symptoms is a lump inside the breast and one of the signs of cervical and prostate cancer is a yellowish and smelly discharge. We encourage people who have been diagnosed with cancer to exercise regularly and eat healthily,” said Mtsokoane.

Eunice Radebe, a health promoter at Phenduka Clinic and a cervical cancer survivor, shared her story with the community. She said women should go for a Pap smear test to check whether they have cervical cancer. Radebe advised women who are sexually active to go for check-ups regularly. She said they should avoid food that is rich in fats and use boiling and grilling methods of cooking. Sonia Ntubane, a 71-year-old member of Siphilile support group said, “I used to suffer from high blood pressure and l could not walk, but now l feel young and l can walk. We exercise to keep our bodies fit. We advise women who have cancer to avoid sleeping soon after taking the treatment but to keep themselves busy with exercise.”

House burned down due to negligence Four families are left without a roof above their heads, they have no furniture and no blankets to cover themselves due to their fellow tenant’s negligence. The unfortunate incident took place in Thokoza Extension 2, where a tenant left the stove switched on and fell asleep. According to the landlord’s family member, Rose Xego, the house was their main source of income. “We rented the house out to three families and an additional four families living in the shacks inside the yard. The fire erupted due to negligence from one of the tenants living in the main house. The tenant fell asleep while leaving the stove switched on, which started the fire that later engulfed the entire building structure. One of the shacks that was erected next to the building also caught fire and burned down as well,” said Xego. A concerned tenant, Ntibe Mahlong was relieved that none of the tenants who are living in the yard were injured or died from the raging fire. “The fire destroyed the entire four-and-a-half room house, left the walls cracked and ravaged one shack. The fire was only noticed by a tenant at about 12pm. We were lucky that one of the tenants arrived late at night and alerted us that the entire house is engulfed by fire. The whole roof caved in.” Xego said the tenants didn’t have enough time to rescue their furniture, clothes or confidential documentation. Xego said the tenant responsible for causing the fire collapsed while trying to relate the incident to Xego’s family. She said the incident left a huge blow to her family, because they are all unemployed and solely dependent on rent for survival. The Xego family house was burned down due to a stove that was left on.

Dust yourself after a fall 4x4’s a worthy drive Gladys Mutemeri

011 862 8500 Jane Nyembe, a 19-year-old from Thokoza, believes that no matter how much you fall, if you rise up, you can still achieve your dreams. Nyembe is a grade 12 student at Landulwazi Secondary School. She fell pregnant and gave birth last year, but she is back again this year doing grade 12. She said she will not allow having a child at an early stage to deter her plans and she will continue pursuing her dreams and even make her daughter proud. Commenting on how the matric examinations have been so far, she said, “The examinations are fair considering that I have been studying very hard.” Nyembe also works as a traffic patroller on a part time basis. She also has ambitions of being in the tourism sector because she likes interacting with new people and exploring new ventures and places. Nyembe has a desire to see young people from Thokoza exploring their

talents and excelling beyond the boundaries of Lebo Mosolodi the township. In the next five years she sees herself doing community development work and playing a crucial role in discovering and nurturing young talent. Her advice to other young people is that they should not limit themselves, instead they should be courageous and test the waters. She said having the desire to go far is what propels success. Nyembe said she has not faced any challenges as yet in pursuing her dreams. “I go with the flow because you will always find negative people and challenging situations, but I do not let anything get me down,” said Nyembe. Her hobbies are relaxing at home and watching television, although she spends most of her time Paulos Ndlovu enjoys travelling in his studying. Nissan Hard Body 2013 model. Jane Nyembe is urging Driving an old skorokoro (car in bad the youth not to give condition) could be a bad experience and up when faced with obstacles, but to keep frustrating to both the owner and fellow motorists. pushing. When a skorokoro car breaks down in the middle of the road, frustration leads even

the owner to want to pass on ownership. Paulos Ndlovu is one of the lucky motorists, his new Nissan Hard Body 2013 model gives him a great experience every time he switches on the engine. When did you buy this car? This car belongs to the Ekurhuleni Metro Police Department (EMPD), I’m just using it for execution of my daily job. I have been using it from the day they bought it in August. What do you like most about this car? It is comfortable, fast and easy to drive. I can drive it in both mountainous and slippery conditions with incredible ease. How is the fuel consumption of your car? As a metro police officer I’m always in my car, especially when executing my daily operations. A full tank could last me about four days, which is not bad considering the size of it. What advice would you give to fellow motorists during the festive season? Car drivers should stick to speed limits because speed kills. EMPD officers will be out and ready to enforce the law. Young drivers shouldn’t succumb to peer pressure, because it will lead them into trouble.

Referees urged to join association Lebo Mosolodi Imagine two teams playing a football match without a referee. Soccer fans would invade the soccer pitch protesting every time the opposition team scored a goal, or soccer players will be kicking and inflicting severe pain on each other without enforcement of the rules of the “beautiful game”. It is because of this that the referee should be appreciated for playing his significant role in formalising the game every time. It is within the same vein that Mandla Lukhele and colleagues started the Eden Park Local Football Association (EPLFA) in 2008, which is a South African Football Association (SAFA) affiliate. “EPLFA consist of the football league for local clubs and a referees committee. Our objective is to formalise football structure from a grassroots level. We want to play a significant role in producing referees to follow in the footsteps of Andile Ngcobo and Ain McLeod, to name but a few. Our young people should know that refereeing could be a career choice, but it needs both hard work and dedication like any other career,” said EPLFA Chairperson Lukhele. He said they have 13 active referees within their structure. Two are officiating in the SAB League, one is officiating in

the Vodacom League and the other 10 referees are officiating in EPLFA. Lukhele said their objective in the coming years is to train referees who will officiate in the ABSA Premier Soccer League (PSL), Mvelaphanda League, Confederation of African Football (CAF) or FIFA World Cup tournament. EPLFA referee Tshepo Mafora said refereeing helps him to stay fit at all times. Mafora denounced soccer teams or supporters who are applying intimidation tactics to scare the referees from taking a decisive decision. He said such bad characters gives the game a negative image. He has been officiating since 2010 and he doesn’t show any signs of giving up his career of choice. Lukhele said, “I have 25 years of soccer refereeing experience under my belt. Soccer leagues I have officiated in include the National Professional Soccer League (NPSL), Mvelaphanda League and various other soccer leagues. I’m hosting soccer refereeing clinics so that I impart my football knowledge to aspiring soccer referees.” Football tournament organisers who are interested in using EPLFA’s services should contact Mandla Lukhele at 076 725 8859. Mandla Lukhele is imparting his refereeing knowledge to Tshepo Mafora.

Bucs’ dream ends in Cairo Lebo Mosolodi Al-Ahly ended the Orlando Pirates dream of adding a second star in their skull-and-bones logo like their predecessors of the class of 1995. Mohamed Aboutrika was a chief architect in the Bucs’ downfall, scoring in both the first and second leg of the CAF Championship League finals. The aggregate score line was 3-1 in favour of Al-Ahly, winning their eighth CAF title in the process.
