SAPS man of the year The two shacks are on fire and the owners were burnt to death during the incident. Friends and neighbours Nkululeko Ndzule and Vuyo Ncala tragically lost their lives when a fire gutted their shacks on Saturday night, 11 February in Hlahani Informal Settlement, Katlehong. The cause of the fire is still unknown but their neighbours suspect that it was caused by paraffin stoves. “It was around 10:30 pm when we saw flames of fire. We went to check and discovered both shacks were burning. We tried to extinguish the fire but it was too late,” Thembinkosi Sibongu, one of the neighbours recounted. “One of the deceased was found burnt and dead while sitting on a chair. We suspect that he felt asleep while cooking on a paraffin stove.” “His other neighbour who is his friend was also sleeping and his shack caught fire. They all burnt to death with all of their belongings,” said Sibongu, clearly devastated by what he had witnessed. He added that there are three people that have died this year in their informal settlement as a result of paraffin stoves. “We don’t have electricity and people are using paraffin stoves and candles and it is very dangerous. While others have connected illegally and renting electricity from RDP houses paying R90 to R150 per month.” Thembisa Situli, aunt of the late Nkululeko Ndzule said they were woken up by neighbours, who informed them that that Nkululeko’s shack was on fire. She said they went to search for him at the tavern and he was not there. “We went back to his burning shack and we checked, he was burnt dead, sitting on the chair,” said Situli.

She said Nkululeko was an orphan under her care.Thamusanqa Makhambi, Chairperson of Hlahani informal settlement residents said they want electricity and the reblocking of their shacks to avoid shack fires and loss lives Siboniso Khali, DA PR councillor for ward 51 said, “The mayor promised to electrify the informal settlement and he must keep his promise. Masina must reblock the informal settlement for easy access of the ambulances, fire truck, police vehicles in case of emergency.” Jackie Mahoro, ward 51 councillor confirmed that they are working with both families to assist them with the burial. “We have an indigent policy that we are using to assisted families to bury their beloved ones

with dignity. The municipality has also assisted the families with building materials to rebuild the shacks,” he explained. “We will be starting with the process of reblocking the informal settlements and Hlahani is one on the first 20 informal settlement on the list. In our term in office we will make sure that we electrify all the informal settlements.”

Note from THE EDITOR

The beginning of the New Year means new beginnings for everyone. Some people have engaged on new projects while others are busy perfecting the old ones trying to find out how they can grow themselves with new challenges ahead. 2016 matrics students have started their tertiary studies at universities and colleges across the country. This is a big step that they have taken; they will be meeting new people and making new friends. However l was once a student and l know the challenges that students are faced with at tertiary level. The behaviour also changes when someone is at tertiary and people adopt new approaches and habits to personal and sexual relationships. HIV/ AIDS and STI infection rate is at high stage and the first year students are at high risk of being infected. The health of students is very important in the outcome of their studies-as is access to tertiary education and uninterrupted studying. We encourage the first year students to take care of themselves and not to be lured by blessers who only give them material things and some will even will infect them. Many young people fail to complete their studies due to depression or ill health, while some they complete their studies but they have already been infected with HIV/AIDS. We also urge all students to stay healthy and remain focused on their education. Lastly on Tuesday we celebrated Valentine’s Day and on page 7 we published photos of Kathorus Valentine’s Day celebrations.

#Vosloorus hijacking must fall Three to four expensive and luxury cars, ranging from Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover and BMWs, are reported stolen during hijacking incidents in Vosloorus every week. The escalating number of car hijacking cases in the area has prompted Vosloorus SAPS and CPF to conduct hijacking awareness campaign in Vosloorus’s hijacking high spots. Last week Friday Vosloorus SAPS and CPF partnered with EMPD and traffic wardens in their first phase of the #VosloorusHijackingMust fall campaign. They were distributing hijacking awareness pamphlets and engaging with the community making them aware of hijacking cases reported in the area. They started at Bierman and Sam Sikwati roads, and proceeded to Chris Hani Crossing and Vosloorus Crossing mall. The police could be seen at malls engaging with the shoppers and motorists. Captain Piet Rossouw, spokesman for Vosloorus SAPS said, “Hijacking is a serious challenge in Vosloorus, before the criminals were targeting local taxis and now they are hijacking expensive cars ranging from

We are making motorists who drive such cars to be cautious not to become victims of car hijacking.” Wiseman Langa, project coordinator for Vosloorus CPF agreed. “Three to four cars are reported hijacked in Vosloorus weekly and we are educating the community to be aware of what is happening within their surroundings. We want them to be vigilant when driving around Vosloorus,”

Langa said.

Tshepang takes the crown Charity Moyo charity@tametimes.co.za Tshepang Lutshaba (38) is Mrs Africa Nations 2017 and was crowned last year December at the grand finale held at OR Tambo Protea hotel in Kempton Park. She said it was an amazing and life changing experience: “I am very excited that l was crowned Mrs Africa Nations 2017, this competition gave me exposure and l was empowered myself. I had an opportunity of a life time meeting and networking with powerful women from all over Africa,” said Tshepang. Tshepang, originally from Mabuya Park in Vosloorus, started her journey of competing for the title last year June. She was involved in numerous community and charity events, raising funds for dignity dreams and desk bags for needy children. She also hosted career exhibitions and motivational talks in schools.

“The competition was not about beauty but to empower women. It teaches women to be independent, to step out of their comfort zone and work towards achieving their dreams. We were also taught the importance of self-love,” she said. Tshepang said the competition is strictly for married women who are contributing positively to the society. “It is not about beauty and body size; it is about passion of uplifting one another and l also encourage other married women to enter this competition.” “Through this competition, l have regained my confidence and selflessness and humanity. I would like to thank all the sponsors and the community of Ekurhuleni who supported me through my journey,” concluded Tshepang.

How to empower children against underage drinking Parents are encouraged to use open communication to empower their children against underage drinking. There is a high chance that teenagers have or will have an encounter with alcohol either through experimenting or through someone else’s drinking. “As a parent it is your responsibility to keep them safe from underage drinking by teaching them that alcohol is for adult consumption only and to equip them with the right tools and knowledge to say no to alcohol when they are away from your supervision,” said Rowan Dunne, Alcohol Policy Manager at South African Breweries ( SAB). Teens have less physical tolerance to the effects of alcohol, and their brains which are still developing, are more susceptible to alcohol related harm. SAB runs You Decide, an interactive underage drinking road show, which aims to help educate teenagers about the dangers of consuming alcohol and equip them with various techniques on how to avoid peer pressure and to make the right choices in life. According to South African and Depression Anxiety Group, it is an adult’s responsibility to keep communication open with teenagers in order for them to understand the consequences and dangers of underage drinking. Open communication also allows guidance to be given to

teenagers with how to say no to peer pressure. The campaign also speaks to parents and adults about the active role they play in their teenagers’ lives. Listen to your children: The more open your relationship with your children is, the more likely they will feel comfortable with talking to you about any issues, including alcohol. Listen to them, don’t judge and let them know they can come to you and trust you. Teach them to deal with peer pressure: Give them some examples of how to say ‘no’ without losing face. If your child is offered alcohol, here are some examples of what he or she can say, which includes using white lies that involve you or the other parent: ● “No thanks.” ● “Not today, thanks.” ● “I don’t like the way it (beer, wine, cider) tastes.” ● “I’ll be grounded for life if my dad finds out I’ve been drinking.” ● “My mom will not teach me how to drive if she finds out I have been drinking.” ● “I need all my brain cells for rugby practice (math test, homework) tomorrow.”

If your child is offered alcohol, here are some examples of what he or she can do: ● Leave the scene ● Change the subject ● Laugh it off Teach them to say no to adults: They should learn to say no to adults who send them to the tavern or the shop to buy alcohol; or adults who offer them a taste or sip of an alcoholic drink and promise not to tell. Invest in recreational activities and in spending quality time with your children: Encourage your teens to take part in activities that develop interests and skills that will help them feel good about themselves without the use of alcohol. Hobbies, school events, sports, healthy relationships, and volunteer work are examples of such activities. Talk about substance abuse: If you don’t tell them the facts, someone else will – and the ‘facts’ they get from friends are seldom true. Instead of waiting until a problem arises, talk to your teen about your concerns and the messages they may be getting from the media and their peers.

New ICU and casualty beds at Clinix Botshelong-Empilweni

Kgolo Matseke, Mmathebe Neriah Matseke and Dr Dumani Kula officially unveiling the plaque of the Adult Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Casualty Unit at Clinix Botshelong- Empilweni Private Hospital, Vosloorus.

Charity Moyo charity@tametimes.co.za In an attempt to continue providing worldclass health care to the community of Vosloorus, Clinix Botshelong- Empilweni Private Hospital recently launched the upgraded Adult Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Casualty Unit. The ICU has 10 beds and is equipped with high-quality equipment. The casualty unit was upgraded from level 3 to level 2 with a

triage area to service the patients promptly. A Level 2 hospital which is an urban trauma centre means that patients do not have to travel out of their community to receive the trauma care. Doctor Dumani Kula, deputy CEO of Clinix Health Group said they take pride for the work that has been done for the past 23 years since the hospital was officially opened in 1994. “We will continue to provide affordable and quality health care to the community

We will also be launching a patient feedback system that

Youth entrepreneurship programme launched

The youth that have joined Buddibox, a new social entrepreneurship programme along with their mentors. The 442 672 matriculants who passed their 2016 National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams are now faced with big decisions about their careers and job opportunities and for many, the future looks less than promising. Fees didn’t fall and without a tertiary degree, or a job in a country with one of the highest unemployment rates in the world, these youth all too often become trapped in a destructive downward spiral and become a burden instead of a positively contributing member of society. To address these challenges, the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) has funded a new social entrepreneurship programme, Buddibox, which launched in December. Focused squarely on development and job creation – it’s a programme that trains up 18 to 35 year-old to become entrepreneurs who ultimately

become financially emancipated. The launch phase is being piloted in the City of Ekurhuleni with long-term plans to roll out nationally. A unique concept, Buddibox gives retailers and manufacturers the opportunity to deliver household products (and services) to greater township communities. The service is managed by youth - referred to as “Buddis” - from within the community. The programme launched with 100, but the goal is to have 2 024 Buddis operational by March and at least 10 000 in Gauteng by the end of 2017. As the face of the organisation, the Buddi’s responsibility is to engage directly with the consumer, using direct sales to secure orders, capture data and build profiles of the families they cater for. Buddibox, Chief Executive Officer, Isaac Lesole said that each Buddi is allocated 200 households

in the ward in which they reside and they will need to manage this relationship and develop the trust of the community. “Buddis will canvas communities by walking door to door introducing the service, building a rapport with the households they are responsible for and securing future repeat orders. We will give them access to branded tuk-tuk vehicles which will be used to deliver provisions from the Local Distribution Centres (LDC) to the various homes they service in the ward.” Lesole adds that prospective Buddis can now start applying for consideration, but he cautions that to be accepted onto the programme they must have a matric certificate and no criminal record. Perhaps more important is they must be a positive, driven, motivated and ambitious self-starter; entrepreneurially minded and want to be in business and economically independent.

is going to be piloted in this hospital. We want to be able to intervene and monitor our patients’ reactions to the care given at our hospitals,” Dr Kula concluded. Clinix Botshelong – Empilweni Private Hospital is the first hospital to be built under the Clinix brand and is situated at the entrance to Vosloorus Township. It is the first private hospital in the area to provide world-class healthcare to the surrounding community and has 104 beds in its general wards.

Gauteng intensifies educational campaign on pregnancy and STI’s The Gauteng Department of Health has noted with concern that a high number of birth complications in the province are due to pregnant mothers not attending antenatal classes. As a result, the Department is calling upon pregnant mothers and their partners to make use of clinics to learn more about pregnancy and prevention of sexually transmitted illnesses. This comes after the department’s week long campaign to educate communities about the dangers of unplanned pregnancies and the risks of being infected with sexually transmitted infections, including HIV and Aids, as part of pregnancy and STI awareness week. “As the department, we really want to remind our people that contraceptive services are freely available in all public health institutions. Young men and women are encouraged to practice the ABC strategy which is: Abstain, Be Faithfull and Condomise in order to avoid unplanned pregnancies and infections. The aim for all young men and women should be to delay engaging in sexual activities until they are old enough to take full responsibility for their actions”, said MEC Dr Gwen Ramokgopa. We also want to make a special call to pregnant mothers to present themselves during the first 20 weeks of their pregnancy, this will assist them to identify pregnancy related complications and ensure that they give birth to healthy children,” she added. “Having said that, it is encouraging to note that in the last financial year, 202 528 healthy babies were born in health facilities across the province.” “This achievement can be attributed to the department’s integrated antenatal care system available to pregnant women. The strategy requires all primary health facilities in the province to provide antenatal care daily to pregnant women and to ensure that no patient is turned back without booking or when the first time pregnancy is confirmed”, said Dr Ramokgopa.

CHIEF PETER

6 years ago my life was a mess. My wife left me and my children were always sick. Luckily I saw a testimony on a local TV Station about prayers offered by Chief Peter when he prayed for a divorced man who re-united with his ex-wife after nine years of divorce and she was also saved from drugs. I paid R200 for consultation with him. He used a mirror and showed me the faces of the people who were trying to hold me down. I was given a special ring to fix my love and financial problems. Within 3 days my wife returned. Now I am happily married and was promoted at work. I recommend him to anyone who has marriage, financial problems and unfinished jobs. Do you want to win tenders, are you heartbroken and financially miserable? All delayed money claims I can help.

:But fans also disappoint Bucs after pitch invasion

Charity Moyo charity@tametimes.co.za Orlando Pirates (Bucs) fans have been left disappointed after the team lost 6-0 at the hands of the Mamelodi Sundowns (Brazilians) at the weekend in Pretoria. Bucs fans took their frustrations by invading the pitch after the Brazilians scored the sixth goal and then those of the Brazilians in response, resulting in fist-fights, violence and injuries. The players and coaches from both teams ran for their safety to the changing rooms and no injuries were reported on their side. The SAPS and PSL security officials managed to stop the angry fans from assaulting each other and damaging the pitch. This disastrous defeat has left fans not only disappointed but also with little faith for the team. Bucs have not been performing well lately and the fans have taken it to social media to express their frustrations and disappointments. They are questioning the players, coach and the team boss Irvin Khoza; others are saying the boss is not doing enough to build the team. Bucs is one of the strong and powerful team with a lot of supporter’s country wide and people are saying they can’t be quite leaving the team to die. Irvin Khoza, Pirates chairman said what occurred at the match was “unacceptable”. “Violence has no place in our football. No matter how strongly we feel‚ no matter how aggrieved we are. I commit that this matter will receive the highest priority in accordance with the law,” he said Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has also taken to the media and condemning the pitch invasion by Orlando Pirates supporters. Malema was reported saying, “We don’t agree with violence. Even this thing of Pirates was not correct. Pirates is a big club and must be respected‚ such behaviour at our stadiums is a bad advert for our football” he said. Despite the bad behaviour demonstrated by the fans on weekend the question is: what is the team (players, coach and boss) doing to maintain their dignity?The team is on the tail of the log holding number 10 which is bad considering the history of the Bucs’s performance in previous years. What do you think can be done to build a strong Bucs team and for the team to gain its dignity, love and support again.
