JHB South heroes changing the world
They all come together because of their great love for God and His people and they are ordinary people doing extraordinary things. tame TIMES had the opportunity to meet the Metro Ministries Africa team located in Rispark, south of Johannesburg. Pastors Desmond and Jenny Naidoo are the founders and Pastors of Metro Ministries Africa. After being involved in ministry for 20 years and being in full time ministry for 15 years working with underprivileged children, youth and the aged have launched Metro Ministries Africa. “We are passionately committed to care, share, support and equip low income areas of our country; providing assistance to people of all race groups. Our 5 year vision is to impact and uplift up to 100,000 needy kids and people across 30 sites per week through our mobile trucks and teams. Our goal is to reach as many children as possible and to adopt 10 orphanages within 5 years. Those living in abusive environments, abandoned and living with HIV & Aids. We will provide life skills programmes that assist with education, sport coaching, meals, clothing and other areas of need. Children will be loved, cared for and given a fair chance at life. We encourage them to dream big and pursue it for a better future,” said Ps Desmond and Jenny. Once a month the Metro Ministries Africa also get together to bake bread, prepare hot meals and then go into the streets in the south of Johannesburg and Alberton and feed the folks who sleep on the streets. It is a heart wrenching experience to see our fellow humans having to sleep on the cold concrete floors throughout all seasons. Metro Ministries Africa returns to their homes after midnight after feeding up to 500 people per night, but they are fulfilled because they have touched someone else’s life and given them hope in humanity. Metro Ministries Africa also reaches 600 senior citizens and spoils them with a lunch pack and a mini hamper. Once a month very special, dedicated
and committed people get together make lunch packs with sandwiches and fruit then they go to old age homes and interact with the seniors. They spend time talking and having fellowship with the elderly folk. Some of the seniors don’t get any visitors and therefore they love the visits and they love the children that accompany us. The children bring huge smiles to the faces of the senior citizens. The children bring a joy that cannot be explained and so the homes are a buzz of chitter chatter for the time that we are there. There is a great passion in the hearts of the people of Metro family church. It’s different races , faces and cultures. They all come together because of their great love for God and His people and they are ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

A note from the
EDITOR This past week has been a very sad time for the Alberton community as we said goodbye to Johan Reed (34) who was gunned down outside the Virgin Active in Meyersdal in Alberton on Monday evening. Johan was laid to rest on Friday. tame TIMES prays that God will be with the family and strengthen them and may Johan remain in our hearts and memories. October is also a month celebrated widely across the country as Oliver Reginald (O.R.) Tambo Month. The City of Ekurhuleni has lined up an array of activities to pay homage to this patriot and stalwart of the struggle for emancipation of all the oppressed South Africans. The City of Ekurhuleni on Sunday, 27 October laid wreaths at Oliver Reginald Tambo’s grave at Tamboville in Wattville in his honour and remembrance. The celebrations included school debates held in Ekurhuleni on 13 October for students to learn about diplomacy, international relations, world problems and possible solutions. The month-long celebrations are undertaken to preserve O.R. and Adelaide Tambo’s legacy, promote their values, and to engender a culture of selflessness. The O.R. Tambo commemorations are held under the theme: “Celebrating the 90th birthday of Mama Adelaide Tambo”.
Beloved Alberton resident shot and killed in cold-blood Johan Reed, the gentle giant, will always be remembered and remain in our hearts forever.

Ag vriende, die hitte is net verskriklik. Saterdag se spoegie reën het bietjie verligting gebring, maar die son was so kwaad oor die onderbreking dat hy Sondag gebruik het om ons behoorlik te moor. Die oggendiens was vir my vreeslik. Jy kan nie terugsit teen die kerkbank se rug nie, dan smelt jy vas, so jy sit maar die hele diens half vorentoe. Die predikant het ‘n bevlieging gekry en hy haal in vir elke afsondag wat hy nog ooit gehad het. Intussen staan die kar in die son en kook soos ‘n oond, en dan moet jy in die kookwarm kar klim. Die
VW Golf GTI. Family and friends of Johan held a moving memorial service on Friday, 25 October in the NG Kerk Verwoerdpark. Johan was described as a well-respected man in the community and a gym fanatic.
veiligheidsgordel brand amper ‘n blaas op jou hand, en die bottel water wat jy in die kar gelos het is warm genoeg om tee te maak. Gysie sê ons moet kampstoele vat en in Woolworths gaan sit om af te koel. Ons kan dit sommer ‘n Safari maak en van Woolworths tot Woolworths ry asof dit kampe in die Krugerwildtuin is. Ons het in die aande die waaier op volspoed aan net om die lug bietjie te skommel en effens verligting te bring. Ek is net dankbaar ons bly nie in Pretoria nie, dis altyd warmer daar. Veral aan die Noordekant van die berg. Ek weet nie watse sonde die mense in Pretoria Noord gepleeg het nie, maar hulle word behoorlik gestraf. Dis nou maar deel van die wêreld. Ek is dankbaar vir die voorreg om dit te kan beleef, om hitte en koue te kan voel. Om te weet die weer kan nie beheer word nie is deel van die opwinding van die lewe. Elke dag bring iets nuut: ‘n Roos wat blom, ‘n nuwe blaar op die boomvaring, die reuk van gesnyde gras, die lafenis van ‘n koelteboom.
Ramon Gouws, family spokesman, said that Johan’s friends and family would remember Johan fondly as a man who had touched many lives. Reed’s step-grandfather, Hannes Nel, told TimesLIVE earlier last week said that they were left in the dark. Nel said that Reed’s brother phoned them 20 minutes after the shooting. Nel described the father of a five-year-old boy as a loving and kind person. “He was a friendly and outgoing person. Everyone he met liked him. He was a gym fanatic and a giant.” They celebrated the “gentle giant’s full life”. A murder case has been opened and the police have launched a manhunt for two men. The Police started their investigation on Monday but by Friday morning, no suspects had been arrested.

Springboks grind out win over Wales to book World Cup final spot
The Springboks will play England in the Rugby World Cup final after Handre Pollard scored 14 points to steer Rassie Erasmus’ team to a hard-fought 1916 victory over Wales in Yokohama on Sunday. Pollard nervelessly kicked the decisive penalty with four minutes to go as the tense game threatened to go to extra time with the scores locked at 16-16. “We’re in the final of the World Cup... but that’s only half way there. We’d love to win the World Cup,” said South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus. “We play a class England team in the final now but we’re there. We’ve got a chance now and we might go all the way. You never know.” It was a true battle of the boot as the 1995 and 2007 World Cup champions ground out a victory that consigned Wales to their third tournament semi-final defeat after previous losses in 2011 and 1987.
“It wasn’t our day but I’m still proud to pull this jersey on and represent all the people in this stadium,” said Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones, who was close to tears. The two teams played out a dreadful first half of rugby dominated by turgid setpiece, crash balls and aerial combat as both sides kicked the leather off the ball. There was none of the verve shown by England in their gripping 19-7 victory over New Zealand on Saturday, but the slowed rhythm suited the Springboks and their giant pack of forwards, reprising the tactics they also employed in their 26-3 quarter-final victory over Japan. Bok scrumhalf Faf de Klerk showed a spark of flamboyance at the very start of the game, darting down the shortside from a scrum and chipping ahead, George North just doing enough to cover on the bounce. But any glimmer of bright, attacking

of Benoni who assisted with the draw. With this year’s Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile taking place on the same day as the Rugby World Cup final – Saturday, November 2 - the barrier draw for the popular Gauteng horse racing event, held at Emperors Palace on Wednesday morning, October 23, had a distinct rugby-feel to it. One of the 16 well-known personalities involved in the event, SuperSport presenter, Neil Andrews even got down to some “scrummaging” after the draw. He is pictured here “in action” with Emperors Palace’s Complex Operations Executive, Clive Tavener, Peermont Human Resources Executive, Fihliwe Molefe and Peermont Chief Operating Officer Gaming, Bob Yearham who all assisted with the draw.

rugby quickly faded amid a first quarter mired by never-ending scrum resets and poor kicking. When Justin Tipuric failed to roll away, Pollard stepped up and made no mistake with a simple first penalty, quickly neutralised by Dan Biggar when Willie Le Roux strayed offside, before the Bok flyhalf got his second after a Welsh scrum wheeled. Aerial ping-pong resumed, Wales scrumhalf Gareth Davies eventually spilling a ball to hand the Boks advantage, as the first ‘Mexican Wave’ rippled around the stadium on 25 minutes to rival the action on the pitch. Wales came pouring in at the side of a driving maul and Pollard made no mistake with his third penalty. Welsh woes continued as tighthead prop Tomas Francis, the most used player by Gatland since the last World Cup with 41 Tests played, injured his shoulder in a

tackle on Duane Vermeulen from the restart. One of Gareth Davies’ many box kicks almost brought success to the Welsh as Biggar fielded and offloaded to North, but the rare sortie into Bok territory was ended by a smart tap-tackle by the ubiquitous de Klerk. North, clutching a leg, followed Francis off the pitch as Biggar kicked his second penalty after Aaron Wainwright was taken out off the ball to make it 9-6 at halftime, both teams shuffling off the pitch in front of a subdued arena. Biggar levelled the scores with his third penalty early in the second period, before Damian de Allende finally broke the tryscoring deadlock. The Bok centre shrugged off a weak challenge by Biggar and fended off Owen Watkin and Tomos Williams for a fine individual five-pointer that Pollard converted. With 20 minutes to play Wales spurned a shot at goal to go for deep lineout. The maul was thwarted but the Welsh went through multiple phases and were eventually awarded another penalty in front of the posts, electing to go for the scrum. The bold decision, made to gasps from the crowd, paid off as Ross Moriarty managed to get the ball to Tomos Williams who fed Jonathan Davies, the centre’s instantaneous pass finding Josh Adams, who crossed in the corner for his sixth try of this World Cup. Halfpenny hit the conversion to put the scores level and with Wales suddenly in the ascendancy. Both Rhys Patchell and Pollard missed with ambitious drop-goal attempts before the latter kicked his crucial fourth penalty to eliminate Wales and set up a final against England on Saturday.
