Newly­weds lose all in fire >> Only their R1,8 million Audi parked under the log cabin was saved SETON THOMPSON

>>ucnews1@feveronline. co.za

I

T was all hands to the pumps — except the official fire brigade — when a log cabin occupied by a newly married coupleburntdown,along with most of their possessions. Only their R1,8 million Audi parked under the log cabin was saved, plus some items in the room safe. Jannie and Robyn Kruyshaar from Delmas, were married at Rocky Bay Resorts near Park Rynie on Saturday afternoon.Theyhadbookedin for the wedding night and went to the restaurant for breakfast at around 9am on Sunday. Shortly afterwards they were shocked to hear that their log cabin was burning. A spokesperson for Rocky Bay Resorts told the Fever that the area had suffered its worst weather for a year on the Friday and Saturday, with some 200 mm rain measured at the resort in

that period. A spin-off was the loss of water pressure in damaged pipes. The Umzinto fire station was called at around 10am, but the line was on voice mail. By the time a response was raised and the fire engines arrived, the log cabin had been completely destroyed. With it went the bride’s wedding dress, their clothes, luggage, computers and other possessions. Staff and strangers tried to help, grabbing buckets and joining the firefighters. “The fire was saddening for the victims and us but we were happy with the absence of injuries and we give our unqualified gratitude to the gallant efforts to douse the flames by all concerned,” said the resort’s spokesperson. The Fever understands that a forensic expert has determined that the fire was not caused by electrical or any other fault in the building.

>>ucnews1@feveronline.co.za

THE Umdoni Business Chamber hosted a strong turnout of members and local business leaders to a presentation by the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) and its related organisations at the Selborne Hotel and Golf Resort on Thursday, 31 October. In welcoming guests chairman Sunny Saman reported that Crookes Brothers Limited had joined the chamber and made a presenta-

tion on its 30-year development plans for the assets it controls in the Umdoni region. Saman welcomed the step and said that it will enhance the level of development needed in the area to achieve optimal progress. The IDC presentation brought together five public sector organisations designed to promote investment and development in the country. They are the IDC itself, Small Enterprise Finance Agency (SEFA), the Department of Trade and Industries (DTI), National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) and Trade & Investment KwaZulu Natal (TIKZN). Between them they cover many aspects of starting and enhancing a successful and sustainable business. These include funding — short and long-term, loans and grants — planning, economic intelligence, strategising, promotion and general support. All of them being government agencies, the fundamentals included broad-based economic enhancement with the accent on businesses rather than individuals, emphasis on blacks before whites, women, youth, disabled and South African based. Speakers stressed their riskaversionpreferences,callinginmostcases for significant committment by owners and shareholders and guarantees in the case of loans. However, it was also apparent that the five organisations and their schemes covered many likely categories and variations in amounts ranging from hundreds to billions of rand.

graded Scottburgh. The Fever understands that Cogta will nominate the contractor, foot the bill and “call the shots”. The target will be the renewal of deteriorating buildings, the beautification of urban areas, road repairs and generally develop a sustainable urban human settlement.

Awards for municipality

HE eThekwini Municipality raked in three awards at the Municipal Excellence Awards at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre (ICC) on Thursday, 31 October. The categories were Best Implemented IDP, MostInnovativeInfrastructureAwardforSanitationProjectandtheBestMetropolitanMunicipality in KZN MEC for Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nomusa DubeNcube said the purpose of the awards was to inspire innovation and improve service delivery in municipalities. “Ultimately, we are one government and we all work for one public and therefore we need to work together. The aim is to use the winning municipalities as models of study for other municipalities in order to improve service delivery in our province,” DubeNcube said. Mayor James Nxumalo said they are happy to be recognised for the hard work

they do. “These awards are once more affirmingourcollectiveresponsibilityaspublicrepresentatives that we are entrusted to lead and serveourpeoplewithhonesty,humblenessand respect. These awards serve as a confirmation that our hard work towards servicing our people is not in vain. We acknowledge that there is still a lot more that needs to be done in order to improve the lives of our citizens but in the same breath, we have to take stock of what has been achieved.” City manager Sibusiso Sithole said: “This is a sign that as a municipality we are on the right track in terms of service delivery. The Most Innovative Infrastructure Award for the Sanitation Project that we have rolled out in informal settlements and transit camps isanotheraccoladeweprideourselveswithbecauseittalkstoissuesthatarerelatedtohuman dignity. “Ourmaintargetfornextyear’sawards is that of a clean audit, we are working round the clock in order to ensure that we achieve this feat in the shortest time possible.”

In 2011 he placed second overallinthenationalSupaDrift series and last year finished fourth overall. If you are looking for an extreme experience — roaring engines, tyre smoke, side-by-side action, ultimate passion andblacktopthrill— this weekend’s drifting is where you will find it.

A

PACKEDUmzintoTownHallwaswitness on Tuesday, 29 October, evening to the keenness of the Riverside Park population to hear what the Umdoni Council had in store for them. Ward 6 Councillor Themba Ngcobo guided the meeting through some tricky stages, negotiating the flip-flops in policy by council in recent weeks. Ngcobo told his constituents that the African

National Congress as “the voice of the poor and marginalised in our society” and as the ruling party in Umdoni, is committed to “every person owning the roof over his or her head, wherever possible”. He added that the party is also agreed upon the concept that it is pointless pursuing people who cannot afford to pay for those roofs, let alone the arrears. “Those earning under R3 500 per month, whichconstitutesthevastmajority,willgettheir house for free and not have to pay their arrear debts. They will take uninhibited transfer of their homes.” ThiswasgoodnewsbecauseasectionofANC councillors had recently voted to rescind such a resolution and change it to read to the effect that the title deeds will be endorsed, prohibiting transfer of the relevant property until the debt is liquidated. The next good news was when implementation agents SLB Construction were introduced and reported on how the homes in question will be upgraded over the next eight to 10 months from December. Virtually every part of the buildings, except the basic structures, will be upgraded and it will be done without displacing occupants. Ngcobo committed to influencing the employment of as many Riverside Park residents in unskilled jobs as possible on the contract. He pointed out that more than 100 people had been previously trained in such work.

THE recent heavy rain brought about many challenges in the upper coast region, including clean-up operations to remove debris from Toti beaches. At Kingsway High School exams were delayed for 15 minutes on Tuesday morning, 29 October, as a downpour caused flooding underneath the railway bridge in Umdoni Road. According to the municipal spokesperson Thabo Mofokeng, the eThekwini Municipality’s Emergency Control and Disaster Management Unit worked throughout the weekend of 26 and

27 October and into the following week to assist affected communities. The rains started on Saturday afternoon, 26 October, with gusts of 51 km/h being recorded and the average rainfall measured at 8.1 mm per three-hour period. “Storm-water pipes became overloaded and stream levels rose. Large quantities of solid waste and refuse in the water course and stormwater pipes exacerbated the flooding problem,” Mofokeng said. At Umlazi’s L-section, a blockaded stormwater drain resulted in flooding of a property. Six structures were damaged at the Uganda Transit Camp in Isipingo when a tree fell on top of them.

tes SA in Durban said that a lifestyle change can be fun for adults and children as participants in the Diabetes SA Five-Kilometre Global Walk over the past two years can prove. This year, organisers and supporters of Diabetes SA are going all out to encourage over 3 000 walkers to take part. There will also be a festive Wellness Expo which allows members of the public to receive free glucose and blood pressure tests. The first 1 500 walkers over the finish line will re-

ceive a goodie bag. The R50 entry fee will be going to this deserving cause. To register early, go to uShaka Marine World on 9 and 10 November from 10am to 2pm in arena three. Diabetes SA personnel will be on duty to help with registration.

crunch, the Umdoni Municipality is struggling to arrange to pump out the sand-filled tidal pools in time for the holiday season. The speed with which most of the pools fill up, requiring cleaning out twice a year, is now aggravated by the fact that no funding has been budgeted for. Two years ago, council debated abandoning the pools to the inevitability of silting up. Public outcry stifled that thought and in a last-minute gasp before

Easter, the most popular pools were cleared. This was largely through the largesse of local businessman James Tucker who did the job at a substantially discounted price of around R80 000, but it would cost considerably more now, a year later. Municipal Manager Xolani Luthuli told council and officials that “when you propose a course of action, you need to quantify it and propose a source of funding”.

JUST when the Toti Conservancy and residents voiced concern regarding Metrorail’s lack of effort to shore up the collapsed railway embankment, repairs have started at the site at Chain Rocks in Amanzimtoti. The embankment collapsed last December after heavy rains. The conservancy raised concerns at a recent committee meeting and sent a letter to Metrorail requesting feedback on what it was planning to do. “Work at the site has commenced. Our concernsareasaresultofthestartoftherainyseason. The contractor assigned to the programme is Leomat and an Environmental Management Plan was carried out by Kerry Seppings Environmental Management Specialists,” Wayne Mills, chief engineering technician at Metrorail KZN told the Toti Conservancy via e-mail. Acting communications manager Isabel van der Westhuizen confirmed that reconstruction of the embankment has started and expressed apologies on behalf of Metrorail KZN to the commuters affected by the work in progress. “Metrorail would like to advise its customers and the community that we are working on the reconstruction of the embankment at Chain Rocks in Amanzimtoti. Due to the high risk on the remaining embankment and railway line, the safety of the community and the local environment, Prasarail has taken a decision to commence with the reconstruction of the Amanzimtoti Railway Embankment. “The contractor is on site and will be commencing with the emergency breaching of the river mouth to prevent further undercutting of therailwaylineembankmentandallowthereconstructionoftheembankment.Theestimated duration of this project is eight to nine months,” Van der Westhuizen said.

A DECREASE in the petrol price of 28c/l from today is expected to offer some relief to indebted South African consumers. The ‘Fever’ reporter SONJA NELL asked people whether they keep track of the fluctuating fuel prices and how they perceive it.

MIGUEL DOS SANTOS ‘People should stop buying petrol from overseas companies and only buy from Sasol. Then we will have more control over the fuel price. Also, when it goes up, it’s usually with 50c, but it never goes down that amount. I think people with big cars should be taxed more because they can afford it. It will contribute to evening out the gap between the rich and the poor.’

Lead with vision, integrity Dear Fever THIS is an open letter to the current management team of the Umdoni Municipality — honourable members in public office with the expertise to manage a borough with public funds in a demarcated area wherein all cultures are endeavouring to live an honest, humble life. Can we, as ratepayers, of Park Rynie be informed of what you regard as the vision behind your contemplated testing grounds at Preston Road in Park Rynie. What consequences do you visualise resulting from the influx of activities and the impact they will have in a small residential suburb? Have you applied your mind, or can I assist you to apply your mind. What is so difficult in spending your budget on an allocated priority. We, as ratepayers, accept your qualifications to maintain the Umdoni Municipality with the funds that we, as ratepayers, provide earned under difficult circumstances. LookingatUmzinto,whereIwasstation commander of police, it is a crying shametowitnesstheplightofpoorbusinesspeople and many other citizens in the chaotic situation created by educated and trusted people in public office. I can’t believe this to be true. Is this the vision of a proud little town that you, as office bearers, visualised, with such a rich history, but is a crying shame to its inhabitants. If this does not create civic instability in the near future then I will humbly withdraw this open letter to you, our trusted leaders of integrity. We need independents to stand with no political affiliations and only then do I believe we will succeed. Please sort out our flood damage and poor stormwater drainage left by your team so that residents will not have to evacuate their homes in the early hours of the morning.

Blink ligte wink vir Athlone aktrise SCHOOLS

ADVERTORIAL:

Kuswag’s raffle draw date moved KUSWAG School tackled a huge fundraising project this year - raffling a car and the chance to win exciting prizes. The first prize is a Toyota Etios, bought from Halfway Toyota Scottburgh, the second prize is a trailer and the third prize a 50” TV. The draw was to take place on Saturday 17 August at the Kuswag Karnaval, but unfortunately not enough tickets were sold in order to buy prizes and raise funds at that stage. In light of this, Kuswag management decided to postpone the draw until such time they have made a profit worth the huge effort of their pupils and parents. The pupil who sold the most tickets is Jeanine Deneyschen in Grade 4. Her class, the Grade 4’s of Mrs Groenewald, sold the most tickets in the school. The draw date has been confirmed as Saturday 1 March. Kuswag School is planning a huge family fun day to take place on that day at the school. More details will follow closer to the date. Tickets will be sold up and until the day of the draw. Kuswag School’s PRO Mrs M. Van Heerden can be contacted at 084 411 7806 or 031 9035434 or via e-mail onmvan heerden@kuswag.co.za for more info.

>>ucnews2@feveronline.co.za

DIE blink ligte van Hollywood wink vir talentvolle Athlone Park aktrise en model Angelique Janssen nadat sy genooi is om volgende jaar die “Applause Rising Talent Showcase” (Arts) in Amerika by te woon. Janssen is tydens ‘n talentkompetisie op 18 en 19 Oktober by Montecasino deur ‘n Amerikaanse werwingsagent, Kim Myers raakgesien. Die 17 jarige sê alhoewel sy baie opgewonde is het dit nog nie werklik ingesink nie. Sy besef egter dat hierdie ongelooflike geleentheid haar nog ‘n tree nader bring aan haar droom om eendag met ‘n Oscar vereer te word. “Ek is in Maart vanjaar gekies deur die ‘Summer Heat Model and Talent Search’ om aan die ‘International Arts Expo’ by Montecasino deel te neem. Dit is waar ek deur Myers gekies is om SuidAfrika in Junie 2014 in Orlando, Florida te gaan verteenwoordig. Myers kies 400 aspirant modelle en akteurs van regoor die wêreld om te gaan optree voor meer as 100 agente soos onder meer Walt Disney Entertainment, Clear

MKOMAAS golfer Ganas Naicker did SouthAfricaproudattheAmateurWorld Golfers Championship in Durban last week. Naicker was up against 25 international golfers in the 16-20 flighting and finished sixth on a Nett score of 306 on Saturday after six days of physically and mentally demanding golf across four of KwaZulu-Natal’s championship courses in Durban Country Club, Prince’s Grant Golf Estate, Umhlali Country Club and Cotswold Downs Country Club. “I’m not too happy with my score but the conditions were tough and the competition even tougher. Six days of golf took its toll on me and on the final two days I was exhausted from the pressure,” Naicker told the Fever. Naicker’s performance helped Team South Africa Two to a third place finish on 1183 Nett.

Team South Africa One recorded a historic runaway victory on 1143 Nett, 25 strokes ahead of runners-up Indonesia on 1168 Nett. Naicker said it was an honour to represent South Africa on the international stage. “It was an unbelievable experience. Just to beintheteamandinthecompanyofourcaptain and teammates was a great privilege. I cannot put a price on that. “I had great team members, an excellent captain, had fun, enjoyed golf, met really good people from around the world and we finished first and third, so I can’t ask for anything more and would really love to be in the team again.” Over 200 golfers representing 26 countries from all over the world participated in the 19th world final. Naicker earned his place in Team South Africa Two by finishing second in his flighting in the national final in Durban in September.
