Bloody day in the High Court
Crime kingpin shot dead By Elmon Tshikhudo Two alleged crime kingpins in the Thohoyandou area met their death when they tried to break free from the police in what is believed to have been a well-planned escape. The two, one of whom had survived a deadly shootout with the police years ago at the Malamulele Crossing, were appearing in the Thohoyandou High Court on charges related to several violent cases that occurred around the country. The incident that left workers at the Thohoyandou High Court in shock happened on Tuesday at around 17:00 while the two prisoners were being escorted from court back to the Thohoyandou Right: Shot dead. Alleged crime kingpin Mulalo Mabaya, who was killed by the police during an escape bid at the Thohoyandou High Court on Tuesday afternoon.
Correctional Centre. The violent altercation took place at the back of the High Court’s holding cells. The scene at the court holding cells resembled a Hollywood movie scene, with blood and bullet holes in the walls of the holding cells. Staff at the High Court, who did not want to be identified, said they heard gunshots, and some had to run for cover, while others hid under their tables as they did not know the origin of the shots. Within a short while, the scene was full of warders, uniformed police, warders from the correctional centre and High Court staff. Clearing up the scene took hours as different units of the police, among them the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID), combed the scene for clues. Sources consulted allege that the escape could have been planned some time ago and that the prisoners had just been waiting for the right time to pounce on the police. One of the deceased was confirmed as being Mulalo Mabaya (41) of Itsani. Mabaya was one of the most feared alleged gangsters in the area and had been linked to countless violent crimes in the Thohoyandou area. In 2011, he survived a deadly shootout with the police
at the Malamulele Excel garage when the police tried to stop a vehicle that they suspected was to be used in a crime. His accomplice at the time, Sipho Shezi Sithole (19) from Umlazi in Durban, was killed during that shootout, while three other accomplices were seriously injured. - Continues on page 2

The school is our own property and the future of our children, and we should all possessively guard against all forms of criminality.” He appealed to anyone with information regarding the incident to assist the police to bring the perpetrators to book.

Residents of Tswinga outside Thohoyandou had a rude awakening last Monday (29 July), when they woke up to smoke and flames at the local Muvhavha Secondary School. Community leader Cllr Tshivhangwaho Makungo said he received a call at around 07:00 in the morning that the school was on fire and rushed there. “On arrival, I found part of the admin block, which houses computers and other valuables, on fire. I summoned the fire department, who responded quickly. The fire was extinguished before it could spread to the whole block and luckily only papers were burnt,” he said. Makungo further stated that, to him, it looked like someone had tried to gain entry through a window and, upon realizing that this was impossiThe burnt-out part of the admin block at Muvhavha Secondary School at ble, burnt books Tswinga outside Thohoyandou.

Khwevha reunion As a way of catching up and charting the way forward to improve their former school, former learners at Khwevha Secondary School in Shayandima who attended the school between the years 1985 and 1995 have made a plan to come together. The meeting is scheduled for 10 August 2019 (Saturday) and will take place at Shuma Park, Shayandima, starting at 10: 00. One of the organisers, well-known musician and technician Mr Godfrey Nedididi, known as Mushavhi, said the event was meant for them to catch up and establish a networking session for former learners. “Most of us last met many years ago and we are scattered all over the country, with some not knowing what is happening to others. We have missed each other for so long and when we meet, a wide range of issues will be discussed.” He added that it would also be a networking session for all the former learners “and we strongly believe that, when we are together, great decisions will come up”. Mushavhi further indicated that plans to help their former school would also be unveiled during the meeting. For more information, former learners can contact Mushavhi at 076 040 4888, Mr Albert Sithubi at 076 856 2764, Mr Khathu Mapholi at 072 850 0045, Ms Maureen Mulaudzi at 079 287 2714 or Mr Trompie Rammbuda at 076 434 0988.

Total shutdown at Elim By Kaizer Nengovhela Residents of the Elim area and the pupils of the Rivoni School for the Blind blocked entrances and exits to the mall and other areas as part of a total shutdown on Tuesday. The Elim area came to a standstill - no schooling took place, no transport operated in the area and businesses were closed. A heavy police presence monitored the situation. The reason for the shutdown was apparently the bad infrastructure at the Rivoni School for the Blind. Parents and pupils demanded better classrooms and a hostel. They are accusing the Department of
Education of neglecting them. A community leader, Mr Nelson Mabobo, said that the former MEC for Education, Mr Ishmael Kgetjepe, had visited the school after the pupils had gone on strike in 2016, and he had promised to build the hostel and classrooms. He further said that the former Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Mr Michael Masutha, had promised to intervene to improve the bad conditions at the school when he had visited and seen the state of the buildings. Mabobo said that the new MEC for Education, Ms Polly Boshielo, had changed the plan that was promised by Kgetjepe and she said that she could not

build the new structure at the school and that the cost of a new building was too high. He said that the community decided to intervene and closed the schools, businesses and roads to support the pupils. He said that the conditions at the school made it very difficult for education to proceed smoothly. “The walls and roof may fall in at any time. We risk the lives of our children every day,” he said. “Something must be done before we lose lives of our kids in this dangerous situation. We want the MEC for Education, Polly Boshielo, to come down and see the conditions where our pupils are being taught. Look at other schools in the province and you’ll see that some of them even have the luxury of air conditioners.” The spokesperson for the Department of Education, Mr Sam Makondo, said that a huge backlog existed. He said that they were going to build new classrooms, an admin block, sports facilities and a kitchen in phase one and, after completion of this phase, they would continue with the next phases. He appealed to the community not to disturb the education process and to allow the children and educators to go back to class. He said that the representatives had met with the MEC on Tuesday and they had agreed that they were going to announce the dates when were they going to start building at the end of this month.

Gogobole residents upset with Sinthumule council By Kaizer Nengovhela Residents of Gogobole marched to the Sinthumule Traditional Council and presented a memorandum of their grievances last Thursday. Mr Michael Masakona, leader of the residents, said that the community was experiencing a lot of differences with the chairperson of the Sinthumule traditional council, Mr Makhado Sinthumule. They alleged that Sinthumule was dividing the residents and selling stands and small farms to people from
outside the village. They also accused Sinthumule of only concentrating on money. “The tension rose when people demanded residential confirmation letters to renew their bank accounts. There was also no proper consultation with the acting chief and local chief council when communal lands that belonged to community members were demarcated,” they said. Residents called on the Sinthumule traditional council to work hand in hand with the local ward councillors. They appealed to the traditional
council to stop the chairperson from dividing the community. Vhavenda Vho-King Sinthumule said that they were aware of the protest march having taken place. He confirmed that they had received the memorandum of grievances and said that the council would look at it before handing it to senior traditional leader Thovhele Vho-Rudzani Sinthumule. He promised residents that they would get a response in seven working days. At the time of our going to press, the residents were still waiting for the response.

Man stabbed girlfriend after she couldn’t give “satisfactory” answer By Andries van Zyl The 44-year-old Nkhumeleni Matshikiri was convicted last week of murdering his girlfriend for not giving him a satisfactory answer to a question.

He then drove to Hamatsa (Nzhelele) where he had another girlfriend. At about 13:00 on 2 May, Matshikiri stated, Netshivangani had phoned him. He then drove back to unlock her house since he had the key, picking her up along the way. “After a while, while we were in my motor vehicle, I asked her about her whereabouts the previous day. She did not give me a satisfactory answer and I became angry. It was then I drove my motor vehicle, together with her, towards Tshiozwi location next to the railway line, where I stabbed her to death,” reads Matshikiri’s confession. He added that after stabbing Netshivangani, he had left her next to the road, driven back to his residence and dumped the knife in an outside pit toilet. Because murder is subject to a minimum sentence of 15 years for a first offender, Matshikiri’s sentencing was postponed for the completion of a pre-sentencing report. His case was placed on the court roll for 26 to 28 Augusts this year for sentencing. In the meantime, he will continue to remain in custody.

Tuesdays at 14:00 ALL ADVERTS must be
On the morning of 3 May 2017, the lifeless body of Ms Luambo Jennifer Netshivangani of Madombidzha was found next to the railway line along the Schoemansdal road near Tshiozwi. She had been stabbed 12 times with a knife. The police investigation led investigators to Matshikiri, her boyfriend at the time. He later handed himself over to the police and on 10 May of that same year made a written confession to stabbing Netshivangani to death. What should have been an easy conviction for the State turned into a protracted trial, with Matshikiri changing his plea to not guilty, claiming that his initial written confession had been given under duress. The case ended up being somewhat of a trial within a trial, with the court having to decide over the legitimacy
of the original confession. Matshikiri made several court appearances, with his case being postponed numerous times. All the while he remained in custody. At one stage, Matshikiri also claimed that he had an alibi for not killing Netshivangani and called a witness to back up his claim. The court was not impressed with this claim, ruling that both Matshikiri and his witness’s testimony were totally untrustworthy. Matshikiri’s court charades came to an end on 31 July when the Louis Trichardt Regional Court found him guilty of Netshivangani’s murder, allowing his original written confession into evidence. In his confession, Matshikiri stated that on 30 April 2017, he accompanied Netshivangani to her home for the weekend. On the morning of 1 May, Netshivangani told him that she was going to work in Louis Trichardt and Matshikiri went back to his kraal. Matshikiri stated that later that same day, he realised that he still had Netshivangani’s house key and went back to her place at about 18:00. She was nowhere to be found.
“You don’t necessarily have to bless your wife with fancy things to show her that you love her. Whatever action that you do whole-heartedly with the little resources you have means a lot to the one you love.” These are the romantic words from Mr Robert Mudau from Musina, who carries his domestic-worker wife to work every morning on his bicycle and collects her in the evening. Sarah Mandobe, who enjoys the ride every weekday, says she feels very special because her husband treats her with love and affection. “My husband is unemployed and job hunting, but he makes sure he carries me to and from work every day. If he is not feeling well or busy with other pressing matters, I ride the bicycle on my own.” She says many people look at them with surprise when they cross the busy N1 road to and from work every day. “As a seasonal domestic worker, I have to make sure that the little money I make from my work is spent effectively. We all know that daily public transport is very expensive these days. Us-
ing the bicycle with the help of my loving husband is another way of saving transport money. I am so grateful that I have someone like him who takes care of me without compromise.” Sarah says: “There is nothing more fulfilling than being loved and appreciated. A woman can have everything, a beautiful
house, fancy cars and lot of money, but if she is not getting full love and attention from her husband, life becomes meaningless. I feel like a queen when my husband proudly hit the pedals while I sit comfortably on the bicycle. I thank God for giving me the love of my life who would do anything to make me happy.”
Mr Robert Mudau of Musina proudly cycles his domestic-worker wife, Sarah Mandobe, to and from work every day during the week.

derstanding or misrepresenting what has to date been discussed and generally most of these discussions have been introductory in nature or very general, and generic,” he said. The SA Reserve Bank also responded to Africapacity’s claims of the latter’s being in the process of buying VBS Mutual Bank. “The authorisation to conduct the business of a bank/mutual bank (banking licence) is not transferable and requires a formal new application for such authority to be submitted to the regulatory authorities,” said the bank. The SARB explains that a bank’s assets may be acquired with the prior approval of the regulatory authorities, but the licence is a separate issue. “VBS was placed into liquidation by the High Court of South Africa on 13 November 2018 and its banking activities and licence suspended. VBS is therefore under the control of the duly appointed provisional liquidator, Mr Anoosh Rooplal,” said the SARB. In a radio interview last week with Arabile Gumede for The Money Show (on Radio 702), Africapacity’s chief investment officer (CIO), Enock Ratlabala, was confident that they could buy VBS and turn it into a major asset for the country. “From our funds, we can turn VBS into one of the major banks and we’ve got enough capital. We’re saying we’re ready to take this bank up,” he said. When Gumede questioned him on where the funds would come from for this venture, Ratlabala was very evasive. “That one is a topic for another day. But we have raised the money … it’s not a new story. They [SARB] know about it,” he said. Questions about Africapacity’s funders and the company structure were sent through to the VBS Stakeholders Forum, but were answered by Enock Ratlabala.

“We are awaiting the … provisional liquidator, and the SA Reserve Bank to accept the rescue offer. Once they have accepted, we will do a press conference and your questions will be covered at the press conference,” he said.
Who are the investors? In April this year, Limpopo Mirror tried to find out who Africapacity really is. Records from the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) show that the company was registered in 2009 and has two active directors, namely Nomzamo Xabanisa (31) and Nombini Xabanisa (42). The company had previously been in the process of deregistration but became active again in 2017. The registered address is in Rondebosch, Cape Town. The CIO of the company, Ratlabala, said at the time that it was a 100% black-women-owned company with the majority of shareholding and investment coming from overseas. He said Africapacity was a subsidiary company that was involved in project funding and development of infrastructure projects that ranged from integrated housing development to shopping centres, office parks and public facilities. In a letter addressed to the Reserve Bank Governor in August 2018, Ratlabala states
that his company has “gone out to China and America” to seek investments and has secured more than $50 billion for infrastructure development. When Ratlabala was questioned as to who the investors were, he did not want to disclose details. “This is a private agreement between us and them; it is confidential,” he said. “These are loans to our company, not to public or government institutions. The conditions and interest is between us and our funders and it is not for public consumption.” In documents provided during an earlier press conference, two organisations that facilitated the funds are mentioned, namely Manna World Holdings Sovereign Trust and the Shanghai Pudong Development Bank (SPDB). Both these institutions have chequered reputations. In January 2018, the Shanghai Pudong Development Bank was fined $72 million for illegal lending activities. This was one of the stiffest penalties handed out in China’s crackdown on wrongdoing in its financial markets. The China Banking Regulatory Commission’s bureau in the Sichuan province accused the Chengdu branch of SPDB of falsifying loan deals and hiding non-performing assets. The bank is, however, one of China’s big commercial banks. According to Reuters, the bank operates its businesses in
domestic and overseas markets, with China as its main market. Manna World Holdings Sovereign Trust (MWHST) is apparently some sort of cult movement, believing in a new world order where money does not fall under the control of governments. On one website, the “Kingdom of Manna” trust is described as “the keeper of the collateral accounts for all nations. After many attempts by Manna to release funds to Nations and (being) blocked by the elites and corrupt governments, the Kingdom of Manna has been established to free up Nations and give back Sovereignty to all.” The “leaders” are apparently a certain Kimberly Ann Goguen, Terrance Cameron McDonald, a self-professed priest, and Lewis E Taylor, a self-professed philanthropist. In an effort to prove that the SA Reserve Bank does not have the authority to regulate the banking industry, Africapacity distributed a letter supposedly written and signed by Manna’s “Acting Head of State”, Kimberly Ann Goguen. In the letter, she claims that the SARB is a corporation owned wholly by MWHST. She then proceeds to “give it back” to the people of the country. “Manna World Holding Trust recognizes the only Royal Monarchs of South Africa to be the Tribal Kings as appointed by the people,” she states.

the national guideline, which dictates that they do an analysis of results each quarter. “We visited the school and we were shocked by the bad performances by the learners. We could not sit down as if
nothing was happening.” Principal Mr Tshimangadzo Tshubwana said they had roped in the other stakeholders after identifying the challenges experienced by learners.
In 2013, the school managed to score a 100% pass rate in Grade 12. Last year, they managed to score more than 85%, but things are getting worse this year. The second quarter’s examination has turned out to be one of the worst, with performances of learners at an all-time low. Worried about the situation and in a bid to turn it around, the SGB roped in other interested parties such as the civic, led by Mr Khathutshelo Ramukosi, ward councillor Meltah Rasendedza, the traditional leadership, led by Khotsimunene Muvhango Nelwamondo, among others, and motivated the learners. During an event held at the school on Monday, four top learners received awards for their hard work.

Soutpan Solar steps up to help young female farmer Agriculture Combining a passion for agriculture, a vision to deliver fresh produce locally and an entrepreneurial spirit is the winning formula behind Mahlatse Matlakana’s business, Wozilex, a 100% youth-women owned SMME. Mahlatse is now being mentored and supported to help her further build a sustainable farming enterprise. Renowned in the Limpopo Province as one of the youngest female farmers, who took to farming at the very young age of 15, Mahlatse employs four people from her local community of Ga-Kibi Village in Blouberg Municipality and farms an eight-hectare green-pepper farm. Soutpan Solar Power, in the Vivo area of Limpopo, recently stepped in to provide business development support by partnering Mahlatse with an established and successful farmer based in Polokwane. Mahlatse and Mr Matthew Ledwaba of Nsete Primary Co-Operative have visited each other’s farming projects to impart and gain knowledge regarding improvement to planting techniques, methods to ensure adequate fertiliser usage, and other key agricultural and sustainable business practices. “Whilst Mahlatse is passionate about her business, she needed assistance to ensure sustainability, which is why this synergy is a perfect example of a skills transfer and how youth and experience can be a recipe for success,” said Harrisinah Theka, the economic development
officer (EDO) for Soutpan Solar Power. This project addresses many key drivers in our country, including youth development and employment and food security, which is a complex challenge as it sits amid a myriad of social problems that need to be addressed. The World Food Programme (WFP) defines people as being food secure when “they have availability and adequate access at all times to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life”. To attain this, food firstly needs to be available. “This mentorship programme forms part of Soutpan Solar Power’s Enterprise Development strategy and is focused on the support of lo- Soutpan Solar Power have decided to provide business development support to Mahlatse Matlakana (front) by partcal small and medium black-owned nering Mahlatse with an established and successful farmer based in Polokwane. companies, with a particular backing of local black woman-owned enterprises,” added Theka, who is also the EDO of De Aar Solar Power.

Rolivhuwa is one talented scribe By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Rolivhuwa Ramulifho is a young woman who oozes confidence, amazing energy and an unquenchable passion for writing, and this is evident in her prose. Limpopo Mirror’s journalist had a preview of Rolivhuwa’s work in the form of a novel entitled Vhutshilo vhu ya konda, and he was bowled over by her skill to weave words together to create meaning. “I discovered my writing talent in 2011 as I got a stint as an actor with Phalaphala FM’s drama department,” she said. “Those of us who had a writing talent were encourage to also try dabbling into script and prose writing.

and writing is just the flow of the words out of my mind onto the paper.” She tackles the issue of ‘unfruitfulness’ or ‘supposed barrenness’ that has a man abusing his wife and accusing her of the inability to conceive. On the other hand, it shows how it is important to raise stepchildren with total love and care as this is the case in one family where a now-affluent stepson acknowledges the stepfather’s contribution to his life, in contrast with the ‘absent blood father’. Vhutshilo vhu ya konda shows women that walking out of an abusive relationship is better,” she said. “If women could walk out and work for themselves, they would be much happier in their lives, rather than staying in a pain-infested relationship,” she said. The book closes with two sterling poems entitled Lufuno
and Vhusiwana hanga. As a writer, and to keep her pen flowing, Rolivhuwa is an avid reader of good literature and she mentions two writers from two generations as her fountains of motivation. They are Mr Tiger Makwarela and Tshifhiwa Given Mukwevho. “I learnt original Tshivenda language and its use just from reading Makwarela,” she said. “With Tshifhiwa is a different story: He’s a talented writer whose book, A Traumatic Revenge, is a beacon of hope as it shows the youths that crime doesn’t pay.” The book is in the post-production stage and will be printed soon and made available to readers. Rolivhuwa Ramulifho is a young woman who oozes confidence.

He later graduated with a Bachelor of Music honours degree from the University of Venda in 2009. He first released his single in 2010, which comprised four songs, of which Ndariyeni Limpopo had gained anthemic status.

His music is a collection of his own compositions that are daring in both style and uniqueness, promising a new take on contemporary musical ideologies with the simplicity of music that influenced him over the last few years. He is a resident of Tshilungoma village. “Music should be appreciated as art and also as a career in our communities,” he said.

Royal gospel and heritage festival launched By Kaizer Nengovhela The eighth Phalaphala FM Royal Heritage Festival, as well as the third gospel festival, was launched during a ceremony at News Café in the Thavhani Mall last Friday. The gospel festival will be held on 13 September at the Nandoni Dam and the Royal Heritage Festival the following day at the same venue. The programme manager of Phalaphala FM, Ms Sharon Ravele, said that Nandoni was the best place to be if one was a music lover. According to her, Venda is
the heartbeat of the nation when it comes to music. “This is the perfect place to set yourself free, let loose to the biggest and best sounds from African acts across the board.” Last year, about 25 000 people attended the event. According to one of the organisers, Shandu Nesengani, the purpose of the heritage festival is to showcase the cultural diversity of Vhembe and Limpopo. “The festival provides the province with an opportunity to unify its citizens and the neighbouring countries, to celebrate the rich cultural heritage and
Mercy is back better than ever! By Frank Mavhungu After releasing her fifth album, Hashanduki, in 2015, Mercy Masakona Madzivhandila vanished from music circles to further her studies in music. According to her, the “prophets of doom” quickly concluded that it was the end of her road. Mercy, a resident of Zwavhavhili village in the Lwamondo area, proved all the critics wrong when she emerged with a new Tshivenda traditional music album, A ri edeli, last week. The new release comprises five songs, Lwamondo, Ndi lindee ndi lndee, Lufuno, Ndo themba Iwe and the title track, A ri edeli. She said that the album is fast becoming a hit with fans even though it is just more than a week old. According to her, A ri edeli is available on CD and online platforms, including Google play, iTunes, Amazon and YouTube. Mercy’s music career stretches over two decades. Like many artists, her love of music became clear when she was a Sunday school child. She later joined the ICC Ministry Band under the leadership of Apostle (Dr) Maxwell Masakona. The band released two albums with Mercy as leading

Nesengani said they had improved on last year’s festival and that it would be all systems go this year. “Each year comes with its challenges, but we have improved two-fold in terms of parking, security and all other measures that will make revellers feel at home,” he said. He said they were expecting more than 30 000 people at the event. The third edition of the Royal Gospel Festival will include the multi-award-winning Dr Tumi, Rebecca Malope, Rapson Ram-

Thilivhali “Big T” Muavha, the well-known presenter of Phalaphala FM’s programme Zwamitambo, recently resigned from his position. He joined the Limpopo Department of Health as a spokesperson for the MEC, Dr Phophi Ramathuba. He attended Mufanzhoni High in Mashau and later received a teachers’ diploma at the then Tshisimani College. He also received a BA degree from Unisa and a diploma in sports management from Univen. He did a diploma in project management at the North West University as well as an honours degree in strategic management and cooperate governance at Unisa. “Sports have always been part of my life. I started as a sports presenter at Univen Radio in 1999 and worked with them until 2006.” During this time, he also enjoyed a stint as a teacher and with the Departments of Public Works and Transport, before joining Phalaphala FM in 2006. He encourages all those interested in breaking into the media and marketing field to study and get a tertiary qualification in the field. “You need to be a people person and must be able to communicate your thoughts, ideas, and information clearly and concisely, both in writing and verbally. Follow those who are already in the industry and do research to learn more.” According to him, development studies come in handy in his day-to-day radio experience since South Africa is a developmental state. “This ultimately empowers listeners,” he added. “I need more skills to improve my work environment and I want to tell the youth that it is important to get an education first, so that you can make a significant contribution to your community.” The acting provincial general manager, Mr Freddy Sadiki, praised Muavha for being a hard worker. He indicated that the contribution that Muavha had made in obtaining quality presenting skills would always be remembered.

A young poet and singer from the rural village of Maungani near Thohoyandou, C2B DE POET or Mulweli Sithubi, has just released a new CD. The title of the CD is Vhutshilo, meaning ‘life’. This is his fifth CD. Sithubi (25) said that this new offering comprised seven tracks and he wanted people to differentiate between education and life, because in education one needed to learn and write examinations, whereas in life one learned from previous mistakes. According to Sithubi, Vhutshilo - the title track of his new CD – says that in everyone’s life he or she is the manager of his or her life. The more good things you do in life, the better your life will be. Sithubi further said that he was inspired by a Jamaican artist, Mutambaruha, who always played and produced poems through his reggae music. All songs were written by C2B DE POET and were recorded at his studio, Mukosi wa Shango recording studio, in Maungani

Pupils learn about climate change By Mbulaheni Ridovhona To make the pupils aware of the effects of climate change, Vuwani Science Resource Centre of the University of Venda hosted a successful National Science Week last week. The event was held under the theme Facing the harsh realities of climate change. Primary and secondary school pupils in Vhembe District visited the centre to showcase their innovative ideas and projects that can reduce the increase in temperature that affects the world. Some of the pupils said that if their projects could be taken seriously, they would
create jobs for many people in the country. Mrs Sophie Mulaudzi from Univen’s Department of Physics advised the pupils to make use of this year’s National Science Week to empower themselves. “The sudden climate change is the result of the technological inventions that we use today,” Mulaudzi said. “Even though we are enjoying the available technology, the climate change has affected us and if we don’t do anything about it, then we should expect the worst in years to come.” The Dean of the School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences, Prof Natasha Potgieter, said that she was happy to see
young female pupils because the country needed women in science. “You must make good career choices for the sake of your future. We need more scientists in South Africa,” Potgieter said. She encouraged the pupils to learn as much as they could, because the future of the country relied on them. Shalom Muthubi (13), a Grade 7 learner at Nandoni Primary School, said that the science week helped her to learn more about how technology and chemistry affected climate change. “This information will shape my career path. I want to study medicine and be a cardiologist, so that I can help to treat heart diseases.”

Speaking during the event, the executive mayor of the VDM, Cllr Dowelani Nenguda, called upon commercial farmers to play a role in the emancipation of women in the agricultural sector. The overall winner, Ms Joyce Khodoga of Matanda Poultry Farm in Makhado, was overjoyed with the award. She said that she would use the funds she received from the competition to advance her business and help create jobs for jobless people.

Teams gear up for Tshikosi
Four Dzwerani teams to compete in the MOP Soccer Tournament By Silas Nduvheni The four football teams in Dzwerani and surrounding villages will compete in the one-day MOP Soccer Tournament, which will be held at the Dzwerani-Ha-Madala sports grounds next Saturday, 17 August. The tournament is the brainchild of Mr Mulalo Madzivhandila, the new managing director of the MOP Group, a Thohoyandou-based company that manufactures sliding doors and does events management. Madzivhandila said he was born and raised in
Dzwerani and he decided to plough back into his village, empowering young people through the playing of soccer. During the launch at the Vhafamadi Bed and Breakfast on Sunday evening, Madzivhandila said the teams to play in the tournament were Dzwerani United Brothers, Manamani City, Mahematshena Young Stars and Mvelaphanda FC. He said the tournament was the first of its kind, and he hoped it would become an annual event during August every year. The winner of the tournament will get R4 000,
demonstrate good behaviour throughout the tournament, saying any form of misconduct would not be tolerated. The quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will be played next Saturday and Sunday (August 17 and 18).

Four matches will be played tomorrow (Saturday) and four matches on Sunday. The toss for the last 16 matches was conducted at the Tshikosi Bar Lounge in Makonde yesterday (Thursday).

According to the chief organizer of the tournament, Mr Nndavheleseni Makhado, the first match is scheduled to start at 09:00. Makhado said that the champions would take home R8 000. The runners-up The tournament organisers, Mr Thinawanga will receive R4 000, while the third- and Maphagela (chairman) and Mr Ndavheleseni fourth-placed sides will each receive R2 Makhado (chief organiser), right. 000. Makhado appealed to the teams to
a trophy, soccer kit and two balls. The team that will be defeated in the final will receive R3 000 and a soccer kit, while the other two teams will receive R2 000 each. “We will also be taking young people from abusing drugs and alcohol as they will be kept busy. When young people are kept busy, less crime will be reported in the communities,” added Madzivhandila. Madzivhandila further said that, during the tournament, some artists would entertain the people who attended.

United Brothers tame Young Tigers By Frank Mavhungu
Mashudu Maswazi in the 67th minute. Shortly thereafter, United Brothers scored when Ronewa Sadiki went loose from the left corner and beat the keeper. Tigers started to press the panic button after the Brothers’ second goal. They abandoned their positions and moved forward in numbers. That made things easier for Brothers to score the third through Divhani Neduvhuledza late in the game.
In their Thulamela Local Football Association League match at the Khubvi grounds on Saturday, Mudaswali United Brothers came back from a 0-1 halftime deficit to beat Makonde Young Tigers 3-1. Young Tigers did not spare any effort in the first half. They approached the game with a lot of self-confidence, with their defenders refusing to allow any stranger within their territory. The fact that the visitors from Makonde took the lead in the 18th minute came as no surprise. Their solitary goal came via their Rastafarian striker, Rabelani Tshikhotho. He forced his way through the Brothers’ defence and blasted in a rocket from inside the box. The game turned lukewarm towards the end of the first half as the teams sat back and played defensive football. United Brothers injected more life into their squad by introducing Livhuwani Ntsieni and Unarine Rambuda, who replaced Takalani Nkhanedzeni and Isani Mbevhana Avhatakali Netshishivhe of Tigers hooks the ball, while Lutendo respectively.

What has been known as the National First Division (NFD) for almost a decade will now be known as the GladAfrica Championship. This follows the decision by the management of GladAfrica Construction Company to sponsor the league. The ceremony during which the sponsorship was officially launched was held in Kempton Park last Wednesday.
According to a statement from the league, the sponsorship will run for five years. The sponsorship means that the league champions will now take home R3 million, compared to the R500 000 that the previous champions received. The runners-up will now receive R1,5 million, while the third-placed side will become R1 million richer. During the ceremony, the chairman of GladAfrica, Mr
Noel Mashaba, said that the opportunity to work with the Premier Soccer League could not have come at a better time. He described their relationship with the PSL as a wagon that will take their company brand to a higher level. The PSL chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza, said that the sponsorship would give GladAfrica an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to society through sports development.

Madzuhe and TTM part ways By Frank Mavhungu The relationship between Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila’s marketing manager, Mr Livhuwani Nicholas Madzuhe, and the club is something of the past. In an interview, Madzuhe revealed that he had left the Tshakhuma side for the newly promoted Gauteng-based side, JDR Stars. He stated that his appointment as the new marketing manager for JDR Stars came into effect on 1 August. Madzuhe further stated that his aim was to make JDR Stars one of the highly supported National First Division clubs in the country. He added that the plan was to change JDR Stars into a very big brand, just like he did with Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM). According to him, he will be launching six supporters’
branches around Gauteng Province this weekend. “More branches will be launched in Limpopo in the coming weeks,” he said. Asked why he had left the Tshakhuma side, Madzuhe said that he wanted to be close to his family, which was based in Pretoria. According to him, no bad blood exists between him and the management of TTM. JDR Stars, together with Steenburg United, gained promotion to the NFD after their success in the ABC Motsepe League promotional playoffs that were staged in Cape Town two months ago. Madzuhe joined TTM when Vhadau Vha Damani bought the NFD franchise from Milano United two years ago. He did the unexpected when he launched 40 supporters’ branches in Limpopo and Gauteng within a space of three months, making TTM the biggest NFD club in terms of support.
The chairman of TTM, Mr Humbulani Mphephu, confirmed Madzuhe’s departure, saying they would remember him for his hard work. He wished Madzuhe everything of the best in his future endeavours. The owner of JDR Stars, Mr Nditsheni Nemasisi, confirmed Mr Madzuhe’s appointment, saying they were happy to be associated with a man such as Madzuhe.
Mr Nicholas Madzuhe.
Lidoda Duvha vs City in Diski clash By Frank Mavhungu The opening matches of the Multichoice Diski Challenge League will be played at various venues this weekend. Black Leopards will play their first match in front of their home crowd. They will host Cape Town City at the Thohoyandou Stadium tomorrow (Saturday) at 10:00. Just like that of their elder brothers, Black Leopards’ performance was not impressive last season. They managed to win only three of the 14 matches they played, finishing their league programme in the third position from the bottom of the log.
The team’s poor performance prompted the management of Lidoda Duvha to appoint Mr Mongezi Bobe as the head coach of the team. Bobe played for Black Leopards while they were still campaigning in the National First Division six years ago. The team was under the guidance of Mr Justice Matloga last season. In the other Diski Challenge matches that will also be played tomorrow, Maritzburg United will host SuperSport United at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban. That match will be followed by the one between Lamontville Golden Arrows and Kaizer Chiefs at the same venue.
In the two matches that will be played on Sunday, Polokwane City will host Bidvest Wits at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium, and Highlands Park and Baroka FC will meet at the Makhulong Stadium in Thembisa. Three matches will be played today (Friday). The newcomers, Stellenbosch FC, will take on Chippa United at the Idas Valley Stadium in Stellenbosch. A double header will be staged at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban. Bloemfontein Celtic will meet Mamelodi Sundowns at 10:00, followed by the match between Amazulu and Orlando Pirates.

Leopards to face the Amakhosi By Frank Mavhungu They lost 0-1 to Polokwane City at the Thohoyandou Stadium last Sunday. Now the question that remains unanswered is whether Black Leopards will make amends and deposit full points into their league account at the expense of Kaizer Chiefs. The teams will lock horns at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban tomorrow evening. While Lidoda Duvha are still battling to come to terms with the defeat, the spirits are high in the Chiefs’ camp, following their 3-2 victory over Highlands Park at the Makhulong Stadium in Thembisa. A quick look at the Leopards’ performance against City shows that Chiefs will have to double their efforts if they are serious about collecting the maximum points tomorrow. Mwape Musonda, the Leopards’ sharpshooter, watched from the grandstand as his team lost last weekend as he was still nursing an ankle injury. Whether the Zambian striker would be available for tomorrow’s match was not clear at the time of our going to press. Should he not be available, the likes of Lifa Hlongwane, Joseph Mhlongo and Themba Ndlovu will be expected to make things happen. The match will start at 19:30. In the other matches that will also be played tomorrow, Polokwane City will host AmaZulu at
the Peter Mokaba Stadium. The Western Cape derby between Cape Town City and the rookies, Stellenbosch FC, will be staged at the Cape Town Stadium. Stellenbosch FC rose to the occasion last weekend and held Chippa United to a goalless draw, despite the fact that it was an away match for them. The same applied to Cape Town City, who were held to a 2-2 draw by Baroka FC at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. Bloemfontein Celtics will host Golden Arrows at the Dr Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein on Sunday. Maritzburg United will play against Highlands Park at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg in the only match that will be played this evening, starting at 20:00 (Friday). Next Wednesday’s fixtures are: Polokwane City vs Bidvest Wits, Chippa United vs Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United vs Orlando Pirates. Right: Leopards’ doubtful starter, Mwape Musonda.
Leopards’ sharpshooter, Lifa Hlongwane.
