HE Mbizana Local Municipality (MLM) recently visited the Khanyayo Locality in ward 15, Bizana to meet with the Khanyayo clinic, manager.

Clinic workers have concerns about the lack of development in their area which makes it hard for them to perform their duties properly. Beatrice Mampofu, who has been at the clinic since 2001, said their situation also made it difficult for them to appoint new staff to help carry the workload. “Since this place is far from town, there are only a few houses here for us to rent. There is no accommodation for new staff members,” said Mampofu. According to her, the lack of electricity makes their lives very hard. “We have to do data capturing by hand and do most paper work by hand. We have to work with ancient equipment.” Mampofu said that they were working hard at the clinic, doing their best to make everything work with the equipment at their disposal. MLM Mayor Makhaya Twabu said that, as the municipality they did not know the clinic’s situation until they saw it for themselves. “We will work hard to meet the clinic halfway in trying to resolve their issues.”

Security guard dies in gun battle SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE A SECURITY guard (47) was gunned down during an armed robbery in Lusikisiki’s Central Business District last week Wednesday. The robbery took place at the Dlamantshontsho Supermarket at about 4.30pm, when four men stormed into the supermarket. They waved their guns and ordered everyone to lie on the floor. Gunfire ensued between the security guard and the robbers and it is believed

that the security guard got shot during the gun battle with the robbers. Police spokesperson, Captain Mduduzi Godlwana, confirmed the incident and said there was no money taken from the supermarket, since they believe the robbers were disturbed by the guard. Captain Godlwana said when police arrived on the scene, they discovered the body of the security guard a few kilometres away from the shop and next to it there were 12 empty cartridges. He said no arrests have been made yet, but the police were working tirelessly to corner the perpetrators.

Police need community support YANDISA POPPY DLEMBULA THE South African Police Services (SAPS) in the Alfred Nzo District (AND) are conducting town and rural area patrols in an effort to fight crime and maintain a zero crime rate in the district. Police in Bizana, Flagstaff, Lusikisiki, Flagstaff, Mount Ayliff and Mount Frere are calling on community members to work hand in hand with them and report criminal activities in their areas to help decrease the rate of crime and murder in these small towns. In celebration of National Police Day, police members visited communities in their areas and taught them about the importance of communication so that community members could feel comfortable around the police and report any criminal activities taking place in their areas. The Bizana Police Station Commissioner, Lieutenant Colonel Mthuthuzeli Hintsa, said

their main aim in visiting communities was to interact with them so that they could realise that they can rely on police. Police spokespersons from different clusters, Captain Mlungisi Mathidane, Captain Mduduzi Godlwana and Lieutenant Edith Mjoko all agreed that being amongst the communities would help to curb criminal activities instead of waiting for people to come and report at the police station. Lieutenant Mjoko said her team always do patrols and they produce good results that were always applauded. Whilst Captains Mathidane and Godlwana said their strongest points in their areas were working together with community members which enable them to quickly apprehend the culprits. “We are watching and criminals should know that we have eyes and ears everywhere and if people insist on doing criminal activities – thinking they won’t get caught – they are wrong because we will get them,” concluded Captain Mathidane.

Couple’s forest outing ends in death YANDISA POPPY DLEMBULA A MAN who was sitting in the Nyanisweni forest with his girlfriend was stabbed to death recently in what police say is the fifth violent incident reported to have happened there. It is alleged that whilst the couple were sitting in the forest, three young boys appeared and took the girl away from the man with the intention of raping her but the man intervened and was stabbed to death by the boys. According to the police spokesperson, Captain Mlungisi Mathidane, a murder case has

been opened at the Bizana police station and police are investigating. No arrest has yet been made. “This is the fifth incident reported where someone was killed or assaulted in that forest, which is a clear indication that the forest is dangerous and people should stop going into or near the forest,” said Mathidane. He confirmed that Nyanisweni forest had been declared as a prohibited area and no one is to enter that forest as it is now a crime scene. The Bizana community were distraught about these murders as they felt that no one was safe these days.

Protest marches continue YANDISA POPPY DLEMBULA ANGRY protesters from Makhalweni locality in Lusikisiki last Wednesday took part in a march to voice their disatisfaction with the misunderstanding between them and their headman over the construction of the community clinic in the ward. Andile Nondize from Lusikisiki said they want the clinic to be built at a place where it would be closer to everyone but the headman of their locality wants it to be in his yard. Nondize said they had come to a point where they were tired of people who were controlling their lives and wanting to bring development in their own homes. “Even the government gets up and robs us of our food parcels and blankets when it is closer to elections but what we want is to make sure that our needs are taken care of as promised, including this clinic.”

Ingquza Hill mayor, Pat Mdingi, said consultation would be done with the MEC for Local Government and Rural Affairs, Mlibo Qoboshiyane’s office with regard to this matter. In a separate incident on Thursday, Mbizana’s Mayor was unable to continue whith his community outreach which he started last week Wednesday when protesters closed off the road leading to Khanyayo Locality. Protesting community members demanded that the municipality install electricity and supply water at their homes and build RDP houses. The mayor of Mbizana Municipality, Makhaya Twabu, said they had tried by all means to resolve the issue but protesters had refused to move which then delayed the visit to Critchlouw sports ground for food, school uniforms and blanket handovers to community members of the Khanyayo community.

Municipality meets with community leaders YANDISA POPPY DLEMBULA THE Mbizana Local Municipal leadership met with different community representatives recently to find solutions of resolving the issues that were raised by communities during recent protests. This was to try to resolve the problem of service delivery protests that had been happening almost every week in different wards of the municipality last month. People were demanding development within their communities, including RDP houses, water, electricity and sanitation. Andile Bikita, who was part of one of the

protests, said that they had not let the municipality off the hook but they were simply just giving them a chance to make things right. “If we do not agree with what they have to offer, we will make sure that no one is going to vote in Bizana on May 7,” said Bikita. The Mayor of Mbizana Local Municipality, Mkhaya Twabu, said as the municipality they had implemented programmes to talk to communities and have them set up committees the municipality can talk to directly. He added by saying that the purpose of the meeting was to tell the representatives that so far the municipality was busy with dealing with what needs maintenance in communities and they are also working on projects they have

started; then the rest will be placed in the next financial budget. “We have also contacted the district municipality and government departments that are involved at a provincial level for assistance in some of the demands of the communities that really need development,” concluded Twabu.

Victim upset after police arrest

Ifeany Uche is accusing police of being biased after he was allegedly assaulted by his landlord.

PHOTO:SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE

A NIGERIAN national, who is an Information Technology specialist, is accusing the police in Lusikisiki of being partial following strong beatings he allegedly got from the landlord, which left him with a broken arm and injuries to his whole body. Ifeany Uche was allegedly attacked by his landlord and his friends a few kilometres away from the police station where he was renting a flat. But no police men attended to his matter, even though he phoned the police during the attack. When he went himself to the police station to open a case, he was arrested and charged with assault. He later called his lawyer who managed to talk to the police who later released him on free bail. Uche said he was the first who opened the case against the landlord and his friends and that they were the ones who were supposed to be arrested. “Look at our case numbers to show that I came first to the police station. My case number is 182/022014 and the landlord’s case number is 189/022014. The police treated me very unfairly and they were in favour of the landlord because he is a well-known person in Lusikisiki. It was difficult even to get help from the police officer who was on duty on this day after mentioning the name of my landlord,” he said. Uche described how the bickering between them started. Since I normally pay my rent on the 15th of every month I asked

for an extension since I was having a delay in getting the money. But two days after my request he came with his friends demanding money and threatening to take me out. “When he was threatening to evict me I told him to go ahead and throw me out of his property. That is when I triggered his anger since it will need three months notice. Then they started to beat me until I became unconscious and threw my things out of my room. I got assistance from my brothers who live in the neighborhood,” he said. Uche said he lost everything because most of his belongings were damaged including the furniture. Police spokesperson, Captain Mduduzi Godlwana, said it was impossible for the police not attending in the incident because they were always available for any incident that takes place in town. “We have patrols daily where even the station commander participates. He said the police were not wrong in arresting Mr Uche because both of them had opened the cases and to arrest was not a punishment, it’s only to secure the attendance in court. So it was not difficult to find the businessman since he is well-known in Lusikisiki and we do have his address,” said Godlwana. Attempts to get hold of the businessman before going to press were fruitless as his cellphone was on voicemail – SIMBONGILE

Municipality lends a helping hand

YANDISA POPPY DLEMBULA WITH the focus of developing the Bizana community in terms of education, the Mbizana Local Municipality (MLM) visited schools in Khanyayo Locality in Bizana last week. They fixed school windows and donated tables, chairs, and toys to the school and crèche, as well as benches to the Khanyayo Clinic. The Mbizana municipal team said this was part of a programme driven by President Jacob Zuma’s State of the Nation Address putting the emphasis on investment in education. MLM mayor, Makhaya Twabu, said they chose the location because it was one of the localities that needed a serious intervention. “We want all communities to know that the government cares for them and more especially we want the children to be motivated at all times about going to school. This is why we donated toys, small tables and chairs to pre-schools and fixed the broken windows of Khanyayo Junior Secondary school.” This was done at the beginning of the mayoral outreach. Later, on the same day, the team handed over five benches to the Khanyayo clinic. “Delegates that were sent to assess the area said the clinic also needed an intervention after seeing people sitting outside with no chairs. This is why we took money out of our own pockets to buy benches,” said Mayor Twabu. Sibusiso Bhaca who was speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, said the community was very happy with the visit.

Umgosi Thumbs up to traffic officers THE Umgosi team would like to give a thumbs-up to traffic officers who were conducting operations at all entrances of UTA and even in the CBD a couple of weeks ago. We were not aware that the people who are transporting us in taxis or combis, do not have driver licences or a permit to transport people. But all along their driving ability was making us suspect. You see, our lives were in danger because we just boarded the taxis not asking about their papers. Oh!! It was more than the word nice when traffic officials towed away taxis that were illegally parked in town. Perhaps the drivers of UTA and surroundings will learn to obey the rules of the road. You know what? It is not rare to see the driver of a vehicle in UTA just stop in front of you without signalling or even an apology because bazicingela bodwa. Keep it up ke gents, by doing so you are

bringing back the image of original UTA, not lo siwubonayo ngoku. Some drivers are afraid to drive in this town like Gesh’s father because of the reckless driving in this town. You see ke umgosi team is praising when there is a need to do so. But there is a traffic officer who spoiled the whole effort. Ngubani ngoku lowo i-gossip seyisincoma? The guy is driving a black VW with CA number plates – we failed to take down the registration number. What did he do? We were driving our Turu-turu down Nelson Mandela Drive when we saw this car speeding like Michael Schumacher. The guy even went through a red robot. Undixelele ke ukuba abantu bafunda ntoni kuni nizitraffic officers nisidla amarobot? We were astonished when we saw this was a traffic officer in full uniform. Mnyama nje lo mfana u-active kakhulu apha ekubambeni kanti naye wophula umthetho. Practise what you preach my bru.

Ukushiye njani kanti mmbi? Uyazi okunye kuyaxaka nyhani apha ezweni sokhile. Yintoni kuni makwedini omgosi? Kaloku besizityela umngqusho nenyama la kwaMaDlamini eMamela apho ke sitya khona. Sihleli ecaleni kwamantombazana ayi 3. Uyabazi ke oosisi xa bedibene ngokubalisa nengxoxo yabo futhi ihlala ingabanye okanye omnye umntu. Kukhona le ibindana kucaca ukuba yashiywa esokeni latshata omnye ngoku wonyelisa lo wathathwayo apha ebanganeni bakhe ukuba kukhala oosister bakhe (umyeni) ukuba yintoni na le wayithathayo imbi kangaka ingafundanga nokufunda. Uze ke sisi usixelele ukuba oosisi bangena ndawoni kweyabantu ababini. Uze ubaxelele ukuba bathi ngapha eMampondweni uze ungayingeni indaba yamagutsha. Naye ude angqine ukuba hayi shame, mmbi la sisi. Ude athi uke wababona behamba bobabini. “Abafanelananga tu bobabini.” Mmawwu, bubuhlungu bentliziyo dade, khazi wakushiya kanjani kanti usisi lo mbi nje? Kuyacaca moss ukuba kukhona apho wawungalenzi khona ixesha washiyeka nobuhle bakho wahamba nendoda le yena uNobubi. Ungaba muhle ucoke kahle, ufunde futhi, ubenemali ubenakho konke mara inking’ ila. Ukhe uyive nengoma isisho lokho. Isimanga ke nalo utsho le nto asiboni nanto intle ebona abanye ababi nje. U-yabona ke sihlala siyikhuza le nto yabantu abahamba bego-ssiper ngabanye, sithi esinelolungelo, so sisi hlukana nomzi wabantu wena ushiyiwe qha qala ubomi obutsha uxolise intliziyo yakho. Uvile moss or uthenge ICD kaRingo uve daai ding sikuringer yona. Ukuphela kwentlonipho Uyazi ngelixa sasi sesesgera kukhona incwadi yesiXhosa esasikhe sayifunda ichaza ngendlela yokuphela kwentlonipho. Kodwa ngelo xesha yayingekapheli kuba sasisakwazi ukuthi tata okanye bhuti if not mama or sisi emntwini omdala kunathi. And mkhulu umohluko phakathi komntu ongutata nongubhuti. Mara ngoku ingathi uvangwa konke. Kaloku sikhwelisa ezinye iintwana

zincinci even nakuMbali kaGesh umyeke uPerm. Okay akukho nto, sihambe nazo ezi ntwana sizishiya eMthatha Plaza xa zisehla zithi enkosi bro, zitsho kuGesh mind. Habe kanti sekwabanjani emhlabeni, umntwana olingana noKamva wam sengathi bro kum? Nako ke ukuphela kwentlonipho kuba ikwababa badala wofika becela iskeyfu ebantwaneni kuphele sebebizwa ‘ta bani’ nangona enomntwana ongaphezulu le kulo ambiza ‘ta’, aqhele umtwana abize naba angaseli okanye angatshayi nabo. Lo nto yokwehlula ubhuti notata awuyifundiswa uyambona umntu omdala nakubhuti wakho uthi tata ungathi bro what is that.

AmaMpondo United increases their chances of winning the log GREG NOTA AMAMPONDO United FC increased their chances of winning the Safa SAB Coastal Stream Regional league last Sunday when they beat International FC 2-0. United was in second position with a game in hand and now they are still second with the advantage of goals they have scored and those scored against them. The gap between them and the log leaders 2010 Storm Breakers has been reduced. It would be up to the Breakers to maintain the momentum and win the remaining games if they want to claim the crown since United is hot on their heels and they also want to claim the league title.

This game was supposed to be played two weeks ago, but was postoned due to the problem of referees who did not show up. Safa had meetings last week and resolved the problem of referees and all the games resumed over this past weekend. All teams are now levelled having played 10 matches with four remaining games each. The Vodacom league games saw Champions lose 2-1 at home to East London’s Tornado, while Red Stars drew one all with Kokstad Liverpool on Saturday. Weekend SAB Regional League full results: Coastal Stream; International 0 vs AmaMpondo United FC 2. Mthatha Stream; Madikizela All Stars FC 0 vs Capital Spurs FC 0.

AmaMpondo United FC continued with their winning ways when they beat International 2-0 last Sunday.
