Sangoma Case

Protesters want blood Angry residents of Madombidzha demonstrated outside the Tshilwavhusiku Magistrate’s Court last Friday, where they bayed for the blood of the five suspects who were accused of kidnapping a young boy. The five who were originally accused include three traditional healers. Last Friday, the director of public prosecution’s decision not to detain the suspects any longer was announced. This was apparently because of the lack of evidence to link the five with the boy’s disappearance. A representative of the community, Mr Victor Ratshibayi, said that the court had failed the community at large, because the community never thought that the five would be released. “We have been demonstrating outside the court for many

days and have handed over memorandums, but our pleas were never heard,” said Ratshibayi. “This is the time to start our own defence units and task teams, because the state is failing us. The release of the five sends a bad message to the public. Everyone in the community, including young children, were against the release of the five, but it pains us to note that our pleas had fallen on deaf ears,” he said. Ratshibayi says that they would consult other stakeholders to see what could be done, because the release of the five was not fair. “As the community and the family of the missing boy, we need the child back,” he said. Ms Mubvafhi Tshivhi, who represented the missing boy’s family, also expressed her disap-

pointment. “How can the court withdraw a case in which suspects were facing such serious charges, while our child is still missing? Nobody is safe now because the law is failing every community member,” she said. She added that they were going to appeal against the decision. “We want to see those suspects going back to the cells, until they tell the truth,” she said. “We can’t rest until we’ve found our children. Even if they killed him, we want to bury him with dignity.” One of the suspects, Mr Johannes Ramaremela, said that even though the charges against him had been dropped, his family was being victimized. “I felt relieved when the court withdrew the case,” he said, “but the community is angry with us and they don’t want me any more at Madombidzha.”

“The titihoya bird is singing” The delegation from the Buheri rural district council in Zimbabwe that visited their Vhembe district municipal counterparts was bidden farewell during a party held at 2010 Hotel in Sibasa last weekend. The two municipalities have signed a cooperation agreement in areas such as agriculture, cultural exchange and school programmes. “Buheri has received an unqualified audit report while we have received a qualified audit report, and we are lucky because they will teach us how they managed to get an unqualified audit,” said Dzhombere. The two municipalities signed a memorandum of understanding last year and they have exchanges

in terms of culture, agriculture and school programmes. Both parties said it was easy to get into a pact, but the important thing was for it to be sustained. The Zimbabwean delegation visited several projects in South Africa, such as a piggery in Muledane and the precast toilet project by war veterans at Tshififi outside Thohoyandou. Apparently satisfied with Vhembe‘s request, the chief executive of the Buhera district council, Kripwell Matsinde, quoted from Cry the Beloved Country. “I came to Vhembe and heard the titihoya bird singing,” he said. That means the birds are happy with the black administration.

Kidnap case dropped against sangomas Top officials of tourism suspended All charges against three traditional healers (sangomas) and their two co-accused, who had been arrested for allegedly kidnapping an 11-yearold boy, have been dropped. The five once again appeared in the Tshilwavhusiku Magistrate court last week, following the disappearance of Theophilus Tshivhi of Madombidzha Zone 2 in January this year. The five people who had to face charges of kidnapping were the three traditional healers, Mrs Elizabeth Ramaremela (60), Ms Alilali Ndou (81) and Mr Ntaku Ndou (32), as well as Mr Johannes Ramaremela (69) and Mr Sello Tlhaoele (21). The director of public prosecutions in the Thohoyandou High Court decided to drop all charges as it was apparently felt there was not enough strong evidence to prosecute the suspects. This is despite the fact that the suspects admitted to taking the boy along with them to Maname in Nzhelele, where they had gone to collect traditional medicinal plants and herbs. The boy has since gone missing. The suspects claimed that the boy had disappeared while they were in the bush. The five subsequently went to the Siloam police station where they

reported the boy as missing. All this happened without the family’s consent and knowledge. The decision by the public prosecutor has angered the residents of Madombidzha, who are now saying that the suspects are no longer welcome in the village. They were released last Friday. The family of the missing boy is also furious and blames the police. The father of the boy, Mr Takalani Mabushe, said he was very worried and he felt discouraged by the decision to drop the case. He added: “They can’t say there is no evidence against the suspects, whereas the suspects confirmed taking the boy to Maname without the family’s consent.” Mabushe said that he had also lost confidence in both the department of justice and the police. The family has written a letter to the MEC for Safety and Security, Mr George Phadagi, stating that the investigation officers in the case should be replaced. When contacted for comment, the senior manager in the office of MEC Phadagi, Mr Victor Mufamadi, said on Tuesday that he had forwarded the

letter to the provincial commissioner of the police, Brigadier Mpembe, for his attention. “We have since been waiting for the provincial commissioner’s response,” said Mufamadi. He promised that the provincial commissioner would respond in two weeks’ time. Mabushe said that he needed clarity and an explanation as to why the case had been dropped. Meanwhile, Col Mohale Ramatsiba of the provincial police said that the case would remain open until such time that more evidence came to the fore. Attempts to reach any of the five accused were unsuccessful.

The Limpopo Tourism Agency Board has suspended the agency’s three top officials on allegations of the mismanagement of funds. The officials include its chief executive officer, Mr Rob Tooley, as well as the agency’s chief financial officer, Mr Jeri Mokgoka, and the senior manager: financial management, Mr Sasa Mulenga. The three were suspended, following a board meeting last Thursday. The provincial spokesperson for the Limpopo Tourism Agency, Mr Mike Tauatsoala, confirmed the suspension of the three officials. He said that the three had been released from their duties with full pay, pending the investigations.

“The suspension of the three officials has been brought about by the need to investigate the causes of disclaimers and noncompliance to the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA) and treasury regulations,” he said. Tauatsoala assured the public, and stakeholders in particular, that the board had acted swiftly and appropriately in containing the situation and that all administrative functions of the board were stable and fully functional. “To ensure that this happens, the board has appointed Ms Seipati Tlaka as the acting chief executive officer until further notice. She has been directed to develop a turnaround strategy to improve the situation,” added Tauatsoala. He further indicated that “stakeholders can therefore be

assured that the agency and its current leadership are fully alert and have ensured that stability and services continue uninterrupted.”

Gold panner suffocates in mine shaft

Released: Mrs Eliza­b eth Rama­remela.

A 32-year-old gold digger from Mudemba village outside Beit Bridge, Mr Josphat Mtshangani, was killed when the walls of a shaft of a disused mine collapsed on him, police have said. The local police spokesperson, Sgt Nkosilathi Sibanda, said the man’s body was discovered trapped in a shaft at Tutonic Mine on Friday at around 10:00.

Mtshangani was last seen on Wednesday last week at Tutonic Mine, busy with gold panning. It looks like while he was busy digging, the walls of the pit collapsed and buried him under the debris, resulting in his suffocating,” he said. The other gold panners became suspicious when Mtshangani did not return home, prompting them

to conduct a search, leading to the discovery of his body trapped in the disused mine shaft. The latest incident comes barely a three weeks after a 71-yearold suspected gold panner from Mberengwa was killed when the walls of a shaft in a disused mine collapsed on him along the Umzingwane River in Zezani village outside Beit Bridge.

Mapheto is acting CFO of Municipality Following the recent resignation of Mr Hitler Maluleke as the chief financial officer (CFO) of the Makhado Municipality, the municipality has now appointed Mr George Phofane Mapheto as the acting CFO.

Mapheto is the budget manager at the municipality. The spokesperson for the municipality, Mr Louis Bobodi, confirmed Mapheto’s appointment. “Mapheto has been appointed acting CFO, starting from 1 March,” he said. Bobodi said that Mapheto would be acting in the position until such time when the post was filled. Mapheto holds a Bachelor of Accounting degree from UNISA. He completed his threeyear article period with one of the leading auditing firms in the country in 2009. He joined the Makhado Municipality in 2010. Mapheto said he was going to focus on improving internal control systems that will result in the municipality’s producing credible fiMr George Phofane Mapheto. nancial records.

The Department of Education has suspended a 48-year-old primary school principal, who had allegedly raped a 13-year-old pupil. He had allegedly raped the girl at the back of his vehicle, along the Vuwani-Masia road in January this year. This was only recently discovered, after the girl’s mother had found out about her daughter’s affair with the principal. She then opened a case with the police. According to the police, it is alleged that the principal had given the girl R60 after he had had sex with her. When he recently appeared in court, he was released on bail of R10 000. The spokesperson for the Department of Education, Mr Pat Kgomo, confirmed the principal’s suspension with effect from 1 March. Kgomo said that the principal had been suspended with full pay. He indicated, however, that the principal could be dismissed from the teaching

profession if the investigation confirmed that he had had sex with the girl. The pupil, who was in Grade 7 last year, is now in Grade 8 at another school. The principal is also a pastor at the Divine of Christ Church. The case was postponed to 27 March for trial.

Grandpa, grandson killed by lightning A 70-year-old man from Shanyaugwe village outside Beit Bridge and his 22-year-old grandson died instantly after they were struck by a bolt of lightning while sitting under a tree in their field. The local police spokesperson, Sgt Loveness Mangena, said the incident occurred on Friday at about 13:00. “At the time of the incident, Roseman Ndlovu, his wife Canisia, and their 22-year-old grandson, Malvin Ndlovu, were sitting under a tree, when light showers, accompanied by thunder, started. Roseman and his grandson, Malvin, were then struck by lightning and they both died on the spot,” she said. Ndlovu’s wife escaped unhurt and rushed home and alerted other villagers. Sgt Mangena said they suspected no foul play and a postmortem was waived. The two men have since been buried at their homestead. “We would like to urge people to desist from sitting or standing under trees in the event of lightning or thunder as we continue to handle several similar cases in our area,” she said.

The family of the 19-year-old resident from Tshisaulu, who was stabbed to death, says he did not deserve to die the way he did. Vhuhwavho Mukhesi of SiawoadzaTshisahulu was killed at a local tavern on Friday evening. The deceased´s mother, Ms Enny Mukhesi, said it was a very painful experience for the family. “It is hard to accept that my son is gone forever. It is very sad to lose a son and the worst part is that the way he died was so cruel,” she said. Mukhesi will be buried at the local cemetery tomorrow. Thohoyandou police spokesperson Major Mashudu Malelo confirmed the incident and the subsequent arrest of a suspect. Kenneth Rambuda (53) of Makwarela appeared in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday and the case was postponed.

Angry protesters ran after a police van on Thursday last week, trying to get at two suspects facing several counts of housebreaking and theft. The accused were being taken to the Malamulele Magistrate’s Court for their first appearance. Two young men from Muchipisi village, Tlangelani Russel Baloyi (22) and Tlangelani Codri Chauke (22), appeared in the Malamulele Magistrate’s Court. Police spokesperson WO Alson Mapindani said the two faced several charges. “They were found in possession of several stolen items, such as TVs, cell phones, laptops, clothes and other items,” said Mapindani. The arrest of the two was met with anger from the community of Malamulele township, who had been terrorised by crime over a long period. Traffic came to a standstill during a march led by the South African Communist Party, Sanco and the Malamulele Community Policing Forum. They demanded that no bail be granted to the two accused. Local SACP secretary Muchini Baloyi said the township had been terrorised by criminals on a nightly basis. “We do shifts at night: some are sleeping while some patrol the streets until midnight, and then others take over until morning,” said Baloyi. “This is affecting the education of the children, as they sleep in fear. We oppose any intention to grant the suspects bail,” he added. The memorandum was received by the manager of the court, Gezani Baloyi, who challenged the community to provide information to the police that will lead to the conviction of the accused. The township of Malamulele has been much hit by a number of crimes, most of which have been unresolved. In October 2011, a 22-year-old EPP Minga High pupil was shot dead at the township in his bedroom; three weeks ago, a 33-year-old mother of three, Rirhandzi Faith Maringa, was found murdered outside the township. The two cases have not yet been resolved.

Damage to graves “honest human error” “It was just an honest human error,” was the response of the Makhado Municipality after an employee had damaged several tombstones at the Louis Trichardt cemetery. The reaction of visitors to the cemetery was one of shock and disgust. “One feels furious, of course,” Ms Marietha Snyder said after she discovered that her son’s tombstone had been broken in two and knocked off the grave. It is not the first time her son’s tombstone had been damaged. In addition to the Snyder grave, at least four other headstones were ripped from their graves. The grave numbers are apparently 3607, 3608, 3619 and 3620. The incident, described by community members as a show of blatant disrespect and incapability, occurred last Friday. At around 14:00, Mr Stephen Lordan visited the grave of his wife and son very close to a new grave where a funeral had apparently taken place a few hours before. On the northern side of the new grave, he saw the damage done to the Sny-

der grave and the family was alerted. The townwatch and police were also alerted. “The police captain told me that I should not leave it there and open a case,” Snyder said. It transpired that the operator of the municipality’s back actor had damaged the graves while in the process of digging the grave for the funeral. Municipality spokesperson Mr Louis Bobodi said that “the honest human error” happened since “the passes between the graves are narrow”. The strange thing is that the Snyder grave and the new grave are situated in the very first row of graves, where there is a wide passage. Onlookers agreed that the back-actor operator is obviously incapable of performing this specific duty. The operator who normally drives the back-actor is the 52-year-old Ms Elizabeth Ramaligela. Bobodi did not react to the newspaper’s request to supply the name of the person who operated the machine on that day. “We are currently investigating this incident,” he said. Ramagilela, incidentally, has a history of damaging municipal

infrastructure whilst behind the steering wheel of the backactor. Last year it was reported that Ramagilela had destroyed electrical cables in Louis Botha Street and water pipes in Breda Street. In some circles she had been dubbed “Cyclone Elisa”. In September last year, she managed to capsize the massive back actor when she tried to dig a hole for burying refuse in Eltivillas at a spot not designated for dumping. At the time, the municipality promised the Limpopo Mirror a thorough investigation. Bobodi did not tender an answer when asked if the families of those whose tombstones had been damaged would be remunerated for the damage. He merely stated that: “We are going to position the stones back to their original position.” On the overall state of the cemetery in terms of neatness, maintenance and security, Bobodi said: “We have cut the grass and the premises are clean. We are also looking at the security issue.” The question remains on how to “secure” it against apparent incapability.

The trail of destruction left after the municipal back-actor operator was unable to perform the simple task of digging a new grave without destroying several headstones of graves.

Official suspended for alleged corruption A Makhado municipality official was suspended last week, following allegations of corruption. Ms Tendani Tshisa, a civil engineering manager in the technical services department, was suspended for allegedly awarding a tender to a relative. It is alleged that Ms Tshisa, who is a member of the evaluation committee on tenders, had allegedly awarded tenders to two construction companies, Masase and Siebathavha, unlawfully. It is further alleged that the companies belong to Tshisa’s husband. The spokesperson for the Makhado Municipality, Mr Louis Bobodi, confirmed Tshisa’s suspension. He said Tshisa was suspended for alleged maladministration. “The official will remain suspended until the investigation is completed,” Bobodi said. Meanwhile, the chairperson for the South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU), Mr Elvis Tlou, said that his organisation welcomed Tshisa’s suspension. He cited discomfort,

however, with the fact that Tshisa was not the only official sitting on the tender evaluation committee. “We also need other officials involved to be suspended,” he said. Tlou added that there were several other companies that had received tenders, and SAMWU would like to see the investigation broadened to include these companies. He supplied a list of companies that his organisation wanted to be investigated. “The investigations into (the awarding of these) tenders must be (done) by the office of the MEC for Co-operative Governance, Human Settlement and Traditional Affairs. As the alliance of the ANC through COSATU, we are going to engage the ANC in the province,” added the secretary of SAMWU, Mr Sylvesta Mulaudzi. He said that SAMWU was also not satisfied with the response from the mayor regarding the memorandum they had presented for her attention. “For instance, there are people who had gone for interviews internally, but have

still not been appointed since July last year. This is one of the issues that we need clarity on. Workers against whom the municipality had laid charges and were not found guilty after appearing before a court of law, must be reinstated,” Mulaudzi said. Tshisa received a letter of suspension last Friday.

Wits University has recognized Takie Maka­ nanisa, a resident of Louis Trichardt, for achieving a position in the top 15% of Wits University academic achievers. This has won him membership from the Golden Key International Academic Honours Society. The membership entitles Makananisa to access topnotch scholarships for doing doctoral studies at both local and international universities. The award also enables Makananisa to publish Makhado Municipality´s civil papers in top journals and take part in academic engineering manager, Tendani seminars internationally. Makananisa is Tshisa, has been suspended, currently employed at the Vhembe District pending an investigation. Municipality. Photo supplied.

Local law students to interact with Pretoria’s advocates The students studying for law degrees at the University of Venda (Univen) will soon have the chance to interact and share sessions with the advocates attached to the Pretoria Society of Advocates. The recent signing of a memorandum of understanding can be seen as good way of giving Univen students doing law the opportunity to receive exposure to the law fraternity, said Univen Vice-Chancellor and Principal Prof Peter Mbati. “This year, Univen celebrates 30 years of existence as a tertiary institution and acknowledges its proud history, having produced great alumni that occupy important positions in society. We have, over the past years, critically reviewed our academic programmes at both undergraduate and post-graduate level and ensured both the relevance as a key driver in terms of economic growth and development strategies for the region and the nation,” said Mbati. He said the university had invested close to R5 billion in the past five years to upgrade infrastructure facilities on campus, including student residences, lecture halls, office space, and the library, which includes state-of-the-art space and equipment for students with disabilities. “Univen constantly looks for collaboration initiatives that will enhance its academic project by partnering with various organizations and individuals to achieve the status of a quality-driven, financially sustainable, rural-based, comprehensive university.

We strongly commend the Pretoria Society of Advocates for honouring Univen with the annual award for the best LLB student on our campus,” added Mbati. Adv McCaps Motimele, the chairperson of the Pretoria Society of Advocates, declared the relationship with the University of Venda an

everlasting affair with Univen law students. “We will arrange the sharing of workshops with Univen law students as part of our mutual understanding with the university. It is the beginning of the long way we will travel together for promoting an effective law fraternity,” said Motimele.

The vice-chancellor and principal of Univen, Prof Peter Mbati (left) and the chairperson of Pretoria Society of Advocates, Adv McCaps Motimele, sign the memorandum of understanding.

Three people burn to death at Muswodi Tshisimani The police from Tshamutumbu are investigating an arson case, following the death of three people, including a minor. The spokesperson of the police at Tshamutumbu, Const Peggy Ramavhunga, confirmed that Shaina Nenzhelele (23) and her son, Maano Nefolovhondwe (4), were found dead in a hut that had burnt down on Sunday evening at Muswodi Tshisimani. “We received a call on Sunday evening from members of the community, who informed us that a hut was burning. When we arrived there, the hut had burnt down and a mother and son had been burnt to death inside.” She added that a third person, who managed to escape from the fire with serious burn wounds, was taken to a local clinic at Folovhodwe. “He was immediately transferred to Musina Hospital where he was admitted, but he passed away the next day,” she added. The third victim was later identified as the 24-year-old Mr Gideon Chauke. Ramavhunga said that the cause of the fire was not known, but a case of arson was being investigated. At the time of press, no funeral arrangements were available.

Tourists stranded at the border Scores of travellers into Zimbabwe were stranded at the Beit Bridge border post on the South African side last Friday afternoon, after the immigration movement control system went offline. The system developed a fault at around 13:00, with operations resuming after 15:00. The border was congested with both vehicle and human traffic. Disgruntled travellers called on the South African government to ensure that a back-up system be put in place in case of such incidents. “The situation is really frustrating, and to make matters worse, the immigration officers are not willing to clear us manually. People are burning under the scorching sun, yet some of us have a long journey to embark on,” said Mr Louis van der Merwe of Pretoria, who was on his way to Zambia via Zimbabwe. Another traveller, Mrs Monica Ndlovu from Zimbabwe, also vented her anger: “We urge the relevant authorities to address such problems, so that we don’t face a similar situation in future.”

Travellers accused immigration officers of failing to communicate properly with them. A Home Affairs official, who declined to be named, confirmed that they had had a system failure, saying it was unusual for them to encounter such a problem. “We had a minor problem with our immigration movement control system, after it had gone offline. It was difficult for us to enter the details of the travellers’ document, hence we had to keep people waiting until we had eventually addressed the problem,” he said. Beit Bridge Border Post is the busiest inland port of entry in sub-Saharan Africa, which handles a huge volume of both human and vehicular traffic daily. Commercial trucks destined for East and Central African countries such as Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia, also pass through the border post. On average, the border control handles about 10 000 people every day on both the entry and exit side, with the number doubling up during peak periods.

Former prisoner donates shoes to school Police, community unite against crime A former prisoner, who underwent a total transformation from being a habitual criminal to becoming a businessman, donated 28 pairs of shoes to children at Muledane Primary School, his former school, last Thursday. He said he did not want the pupils to go through what he had gone through. “I want you to go to school and be responsible children and not be like me because I was a criminal, and crime does not pay,” said Madovhi Mudau after presenting the shoes. Madovhi said he had been imprisoned for five years for shoplifting in Thohoyandou and came out in 2003. “Magistrate Jonathan Rapudi, who had imprisoned me, was the one who changed my life,” said Madovhi. Before sentencing him, Rapudi

had told him that crime does not pay. “He later visited me in prison and told me how I could make my life meaningful. After he had visited me in prison and the message had sunk in, I started a cash loan business. Among my clients were policemen,” he said. He said he had never made money as a criminal, but now his business was thriving after he had changed his ways. After his release, Mudaui started an office in Thohoyandou where he operates his cash loan business. He now has two taxis and has built himself a huge house in Muledane and is also driving expensive vehicles. Madovhi says he believes God is the one who changed his life. “I was naughty and many young people who did crime with me are dead after being shot

during the commission of their crimes,” he said. He said he was once shot but survived. " I was a notorious pickpocketer around Thohoyandou. At one time, I almost died when I was beaten for having picked someone's pocket for R9,00,” he said. He told the children that there were many things he would do for them, but he did not say what. The principal of the School, Ms Tendani Martha Nesengani, said the school was formed in 1940 and hadproduced many people who were important members of the community. “We think his change from crime to donor is an act of God and augurs well for the school,” said Nesengane. Traditional leader Samuel Mavhina and Circuit Manager Mathews Rambani also hailed the donation.

Crime has become a daily occurrence in this community... Tired of the crime that has become like a plaque in their area, the people of Itsani at Tshisahulu, together with the local police, gathered on Sunday to seek ways to curb crime. The mass meeting was held at the local Thivhulawi Makumbane Primary School. Tshisahulu Sanco chairperson Mr Aaron Nevhutanda said the area had become one of the worst crime zones in the region. “We are here as concerned citizens of this area. We need to put our heads together and see if we can come up with strategies that

can help us fight crime. Our area has become a dangerous place to live in. It is las if we are in our own prison where we are not allowed to move freely,” he said. He said there had been many break-ins into people’s houses, and there were many cases of murder that had occurred in the area. He said it was true that the community was worried about the many foreign nationals to whom most of the crime was attributed. “It is not only Zimbabweans that are involved in crime, but even our children are involved. What we need is that all foreign nationals be registered, so that it will be easy to trace them if they commit a crime. Even if they run away, they will be traced back in their own countries,” he said. He said he was happy that police had shown the commitment to work with the community in the fight against crime. On behalf of the police, Lt-Col Richard Madilonga, the crime prevention commander at Thohoyandou, said he was encouraged that the community had shown the willingness to work hand in hand with the police. “The meeting has been very fruitful. One thing that brought hope is the registration of all foreign A community member makes a point during nationals who are residing in the area,” he added. the meeting.

MAKHADO CARE GROUP IS A NON PROFIT ORGANISATION WHICH ASSISTS WITH THE CARE OF CANCER PATIENTS

CERVICAL CANCER

Cervical cancer is the rapid uncontrolled growth of severely abnormal cells on the cervix (lower part of uterus that opens into the vagina). When detected early, cervical cancer is highly curable. Pap/cervical smears are the single most important tool in the prevention of cervical cancer. CAUSES OF CERVICAL CANCER: - The cervix is made up of two different types of cells, columnar and squamous. Columnar cells constantly change into squamous cells as a natural process, but this provides opportunity for abnormalities to occur. - Infection can also cause abnormal cell changes. - There is a direct link between high-risk sexual behaviour (even if years prior) and cervical cancer as this increases the risk of contracting STDs. - If these abnormalities persist over time and become sever, cancer cells may develop. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF CERVICAL CANCER: - Abnormal cervical changes rarely present with symptoms until it develops into cancer. - Unexplained change in menstrual cycle. - Abnormal vaginal bleeding. - Bleeding on contact such as during sexual intercourse or insertion of a diaphragm. - Pain during sexual intercourse. - Abnormal vaginal discharge containing mucous and sometimes tinged with blood.

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT: - Regular pap smears are essential to the early detection. - Colonoscopy or cervical biopsy will be done to determine whether abnormalities are cancerous or pre-cancerous. - The doctor may send you for blood tests, a bone scan or X-Rays. - The size of the cancer and whether it has spread is important in determining the course of treatment. - Cervical cancer in the early stages may be treated or removed bu surgery without affecting the patient’s ability to have children. Close follow up is essential. - Treatment for later stage cervical cancer may include radical hysterectomy, rendering the patient infertile, radiation and chemotherapy or a combination. PREVENTION - Regular pap smears. - Practicing safe sex will reduce your risk of cervical cancer. - Seek medical advice if you experience persistent vaginal infections.

Lack of funds hampers mortuary project A lack of funding continues to impact negatively on the ongoing Beit Bridge District Hospital mortuary expansion project. The local chief medical officer, Dr Takaitei Kanongara, said the construction of a new mortuary wing had been stalled due to a lack of funds. “This has a negative effect on the facility’s cooling system, as it constantly breaks down as a result of pressure from an increased number of unclaimed bodies that continue to pile up,” he said. Kanongara said they conducted paupers’ burials occasionally, with the assistance of the local department of social services, to ease the load. Recently, the hospital conducted pauper’s

burials of four unclaimed bodies of border jumpers. The Beit Bridge District Hospital mortuary has a capacity of carrying only six bodies at a given time, but due to the everincreasing number of unclaimed bodies, the facility is forced to accommodate as many as 60 bodies, resulting in a strain on the compressor. Some of the unclaimed bodies are would-be border jumpers picked up by police along the Limpopo River, after they had been robbed and murdered by organised crime syndicates. It is envisaged that, when completed, the new facility will be able to accommodate at least 22 bodies. Kanongara appealed to the government and other

well-wishers to assist with funds for the completion of the mortuary project. He said plans to upgrade the mortuary had been on the table for more than 10 years. “At the moment, we have a problem with our compressor which is constantly breaking down. This has forced us to conduct paupers’ burials to relieve the pressure on the mortuary. World Vision, a local NGO, once chipped in with US$12 500 to acquire some of the equipment for the mortuary. “What is now left is for us is to install some fittings and procure 16 trays made of stainless steel. We also need to work on some structural adjustment to the building,” he said.

Elderly woman fatally hit by by donkey cart A 90-year-old blind and deaf woman from Silalatshani village outside Beit Bridge was fatally hit by a donkey cart while walking towards her home.

Police spokesperson Sgt Loveness Mangena said the incident occurred on Sunday at around 09:00 along the Silalatshani-Avoca road. “It looks as if the driver of the cart

failed to control the four donkeys pulling the cart, since the animals had no reins,” she said. The deceased was identified as Ms Eliza Ncube.

Rhino suspects “wanted watermelons” New development for town’s green belt Three men accused of poaching a rhino in the Alldays area claim that they were in the area to buy watermelons. They further claim that they were never involved in a shoot-out with police officials. The men who, according to information available, were caught in a police trap, appeared in the Louis Trichardt District Court on Monday. They have been charged with single counts of attempted murder and the carrying out of a restricted activity on a protected species without the necessary permit. Machava Januarie (37), Juda Mphyi Nyembe (38) and Mathews Pedro Ngwenya (42) were arrested during a police road block in October last year. The road block was set up after the three had allegedly fled from the police. Police apparently set up the trap, following an incident in which a rhino was poached and the horns removed at a lodge in the Alldays district. According to information

available, the men got wind of the trap and started to shoot at the police. They were arrested and brought before court on 24 October last year. During their bail application, the men claimed that it was their first time in the Alldays area and that they wanted to buy vegetables, and specifically watermelons, to re-sell at their respective businesses in Gauteng. Januarie and Nyembe testified that they were driving in a borrowed bakkie when they were arrested at the road block. They told the court that the bakkie was searched and that nothing was found in it. According to Januarie, they were on their way to meet up with Ngwenya, who was supposed to introduce them to vegetable sellers. Ngwenya told the court that he was unable to meet with his co-accused, due to the fact that he had been assaulted while on his way to meet them. He said he was left for dead next to the road. He claimed that the

people who had given him a lift had first drugged him, robbed him of all his money, assaulted him and thrown him out of the vehicle. The only thing he could remember, he testified, was waking up in the Alldays police station. Ngwena, like his two co-accused, also claimed that police had strong-armed them into admitting that they had poached a rhino. Opposing their bail, the investigating officer testified that a police agent was used and had met with all three accused. He also told the court that the men were in possession of two largecalibre guns, one small-calibre gun and one axe. Bail was denied, due to the fact that Januarie and Ngwenya are Mozambicans and pose a possible flight risk. Nyembe is a South African, but has previous convictions and pending criminal cases against him. Their case was transferred to the regional court, where they will appear from 16 to 20 April.

In the dock during their court appearance on Monday are, from left to right, Machava Januarie, Juda Mphyi Nyembe and Mathews Pedro Ngwenya.

Crime

“Murderers will be arrested soon” - MEC The MEC for Safety, Security and Liaison, Mr George Phadagi, was confident that the person or persons responsible for the brutal murder of Ms Rhandzu Faith Makamu (32) will be apprehended soon. He was responding to a memorandum handed to him by the Zinjhiva Nkondo branch of the ANC Women’s League in Malamulele. The Women’s League staged a march to the Malamulele police station on 24 February 2012 to

express their concern about the spate of killings and the general crime situation in the area. A particular concern is that of the brutal murder of Ms Makamu, who was chopped several times on her neck and face. Her corpse was found in the bushes between Madonsi and Greenfarm. The women were also concerned about the disappearance of an EPP Mhinga High School learner who disappeared without a trace last year. MEC Phadagi expressed his

sympathy to the affected families and the community of Malamulele in general for their bereavement. “The police have been approached to give priority to the two cases and are doing all in their power to bring closure to this unfortunate chapter,” a statement from the MEC’s office reads. On Wednesday, 29 February, a team from the Crime Prevention Unit of the Department and the Office of the MEC visited the area.

The two, both aged 18, attended Segolele Senior Secondary and they were the only two who passed with matric exemption among the 120 who wrote in 2011. Mr Matamela Matanga, a senior manager in the office of the MEC, said they visited Sekgolele School as part of their back-toschool campaign with the MEC. “On arrival at the school, we were told only two pupils out of 120 had managed to pass with matric exemption. Further enquiries revealed that the two are from disadvantaged backgrounds and that their parents could not afford to send them to university,” he said. He said that, after a careful

Two disadvantaged pupils, whose dreams of ever studying at university had faded, have received a lease on life when they were given full bursaries to study at Univen. The two, Oupa Magane and Nontobeko Mokoena, could not go to university because of a lack of funds. They were on cloud nine when they heard that all their expenses to study at the University of Venda were being paid in full, thanks to the Departtment of Economic Development and Tourism, who rescued them. The good news was broken to the two by Matamela Matanga, a senior manager in the office of the MEC, Pitsi Moloto, and his entourage who visited the univer-

A new shopping centre, a 120bed hotel and an office complex are once again being planned for development in the northern part of Louis Trichardt’s green belt area. The proposed development on an 18-hectare stand east of River Street, north of Stubbs Street and west of the N1, will comprise a shopping centre of 35 000 square meters with associated parking, a 60-room hotel and an

assessment, they decided to give the two full bursaries. “We have taken it upon ourselves to support them throughout their studies, but that will depend on their academic performance,” he said. He said the department was also assisting 193 students at different levels of tertiary education. Oupa Magane said he had given up all hope of ever attending university. “I am from a very poor background and my parents cannot afford me a decent education. When I was doing my Grade 12, I kept on praying that a Good Samaritan would come along and assist me with my schooling. I am very excited that, at long last, I will be able to achieve my dreams,” he added.

The community of Matsakali has praised the founder of a primary school who has retired. This was during the farewell party for Mr Sunnyboy Simango, principal of Khupukani Primary. “We loved you and you had become part of us. Your departure will leave us the poorer,” said the chairperson of the school governing body, Mr Jimmy Makhubele. He said that Simango had served the school with distinction since he started the school in 1982. Makhubele said Simango had made the school one of the best in the area and worked well with both the staff and the governing body.

The local chief, Madonsi Madonsi, said the school’s loss was his gain. “Simango also assisted me at the tribal office and he was always available to come and help,” said Madonsi, adding that now that Simango would no longer be the principal, he would fulfil the other role as his advisor more effectively. Simango answered that he never knew that he was appreciated in both the community and at the school. “Now that I know, I will enjoy my retirement more,” he added. The farewell was done in conjunction with the unveiling of a new school uniform.

Another accident on “Tshikota bad corner” The SAPS at Louis Trichardt have opened a case of reckless driving after a male driver lost control of his bakkie along the Tshikota-Kutama R522 road on Monday and capsised. It seems that the man and his four passengers, including a three-year-old boy, were coming back from buying cabbages at one of the farms in the area and driving to Louis Trichardt, when he lost control of the vehicle. Cabbages spilled all over the road

when the car rolled until it halted in the middle of the road. All the occupants sustained minor injuries and were treated at the Louis Trichardt Memorial Hospital. They were all discharged on the same day. The spokesperson for the Makhado police, Captain Maano Sadike, confirmed the case. “We advise people to drive with care on all our roads because lives are important,” said Captain Sadike.

“Motorists must always be alert, so as not to put other people’s lives in danger.” Accidents of this nature happen regularly and exactly at this spot, infamously named “Tshikota bad corner” by motorists and residents of Tshikota township. On the morning of 6 February, two officials of the Makhado Fire Brigade were driving along this road, when the driver lost control of the vehicle and it capsised, damaging the vehicle badly.

“Register now to vote in elections” The Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) in Mutale is appealing to the community to register with the IEC, so that they can participate in the local and national elections. The IEC project coordinator in Mutale, Vuledzani Matodzi, said that the commission was concerned that "our community, especially the youth, are no longer interested in elections like before. In 1996, the IEC in Mutale municipality took position one in the province for having the highest number of people who were registered on our voter's roll. In the past elections, we also took first position for having the fewest spoilt ballots. That number has been going down every year and we are very concerned about that," said Matodzi.

Matodzi said their office had embarked on an outreach program where they went to schools, formal functions and churches to educate the community so that they can register to participate in the democratic processes of this country. "Most of the people who are not registered with us are youths. We are now appealing to all community members, especially youths from the age of 15, to make Vuledzani Matodzi, the sure that they start reg- electoral project coistering," said Matodzi. ordinator in Mutale.

Nemudzivhadi of Thengwe Secondary School Thengwe Secondary in the Tshandama village is near Mutale, who recently won the Kader Asmal excelling in producing astonishing matric results, Award, has declared that “nothing will stop his despite being situated in a rural area. Nemudzivhadi was among the chosen few teachers and principals in South Africa who were rewarded for their outstanding work, dedication and commitment at the 12th annual National Teaching Awards, held at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg. The Kader Asmal Excellence Award is a special ministerial award named after a former Minister of Education, the late Prof Kader Asmal. After receiving the award, Nemudzivhadi said it was the team work between the various stakeholders, viz. the parents, pupils and teachers, that was behind his success. “Everyone knows what is expected and we emphasise that nothing is impossible. I urge other teachers to also walk the extra mile for the benefit of the pupils," said Nemudzivhadi. Nemudzivhadi has been the principal at the school since 1986 and the school has been producing a matric pass rate of above 98% for the past five years. It has 287 learners and 64 teachers.

15 000 illegal Zimbabweans sent home South Africa has so far deported nearly 15 000 illegal Zimbabwean immigrants through the Beit Bridge border post since the government resumed the exercise last October. The Zimbabwean regional immigration manager in charge of the border post, Mr Charles Gwede, said between 7 October and December last year, they handled 7 755 deportees. "Between 1 January and 2 March, 7 177 more Zimbabweans were brought back home,” he said. On arrival in their country, the returnees are received by the immigration authorities at the International Organisation for

Migration (IOM) Beit Bridge Reception and Support Centre (BRSC), who vet them to ascertain whether they are bona fide Zimbabweans. Soon after that process, IOM offers the deportees overnight accommodation, medication, food and transport to proceed to their respective homes. Some of the deportees turn down any form of assistance from the IOM and those who opt to go home, using their own means, are released. It is also reported that most of them resort to crossing back to South Africa illegally through undesignated entry points along the Limpopo

River, despite the dangers of being attacked by crocodiles or robbers operating in the bushes near the river. The IOM spokesperson, Mr Knowledge Mareyanadzo, told Limpopo Mirror that his organisation had so far assisted 12 708 returnees with transport to travel to their respective homes. The IOM BRSC has the capacity to accommodate 600 people at any given time. More than 275 000 applications from Zimbabweans wishing to regularise their stay in South Africa have been processed, while several others were turned down and some are pending.

Benny’s and Arsenal in 1-all draw

Super Eagles suffer a 0-10 defeat

Benny's Care Soccer Academy enjoyed greater ball possession in their Safa Vhembe SAB League match against Madombidzha Arsenal at Tshiozwi on Sunday, but the

Things continued to go from bad to worse in the Super Eagles’ camp last weekend. This time round, they were brutally walloped 10-0 by Winners Park in their Vodacom Promotional League match at the Mahwelereng Stadium in Mokopane on Sunday afternoon. Realising that the Super Eagles were soft targets, Winners Park made use of every chance they created and thus scored a goal almost every ten minutes of the game. The victory was good enough

match ended in a 1-all draw. The home side was too strong in the middle of the park, but fumbled with the finishing up front. The home team took the lead

in the 16th minute. Lodly Davhana unleashed a powerful shot from the edge of the box after receiving a pass from Rendani Galedzane. Arsenal should have equalised a few minutes later, but striker Dakalo Nwanamindwa shot the ball into the hands of the keeper. There was a huge grumble from the Arsenal supporters when striker Rambuwani missed an obvious chance. Londy Musiamo of Arsenal was cautioned for unsporting conduct. Two players of Benny's, Rendani Galedzane and Yona Mulaudzi, were cautioned for rough play and wasting time respectively. A defender of the home team handled the ball inside of the penality area and the referee pointed to the white spot; Aubrey Munyai scored to equalise. Matome Mukhuba and Thompho Maliehe attack the ball.

to push Winners Park from the second to the first spot on the log, with 39 points accumulated from 17 outings. Although Modimolle Aces were at some stage reduced to 10 men, Basel FC did not capitalise on the setback. Their equally contested match, which was staged at the Malamulele Stadium on Saturday, ended in a goalless draw. Aces should have taken the lead later in the second half, but they were unfortunate. They were awarded a penalty after a defender of Basel handled the ball within his own penalty area.

In the Vhembe derby, which was also staged at the Malamulele Stadium on Sunday, Rospa United shared the glory 1-1 with Nobela All Stars. The defending champions, Baroka FC, collected the maximum points. They beat Magezi FC 4-1. Fanang Diatla were on the receiving end, as they lost 0-5 to FC Dinare at home. Phungo All Stars and Lephalale Young Killers shared the spoils at the Louis Trichardt Eltivillas grounds. They played to a 1-1 draw. Blue Rocks and The Dolphins also played to a draw.

Fixtures

Phungo All Stars aim to stop Blue Rocks The fight for league points will continue among the affiliates of the Limpopo Stream of the Vodacom Promotional League this weekend. Phungo All Stars are leaving no stone unturned in their preparations for their weekend fixture. They will play against one of the title chasers, Blue Rocks, at the Nkowankowa Stadium tomorrow afternoon. Blue Rocks proved during the past weeks that they are not easy to beat at their home ground.

Blue Rocks must keep a watchful eye on Stars’ playmakers, Hulisani Mathugana and Stemmer Aphane, or else they will be buried alive. Rospa United will play in front of their home crowd. They will host Giyani Hotspurs at the Tshifulanani Stadium. Hotspurs will be given a run for their money if Rospa’s performance against Nobela All Stars last weekend is anything to be considered. They drew 1-1 with Nobela All

Stars at the Malamulele Stadium. Nobela All Stars will pay a visit to Dolphins FC at the Seshego Stadium. Mighty FC will have a date with their neighbours, Winners Park FC, and Modimolle Aces will host the struggling Fanang Diatla FC. Basel FC will travel to Jane Furse for their match against the pace setters, Baroka FC and Super Eagles, and Magezi will play at the Seshego Stadium on Sunday.

Mr Joe Kanwendo (right) recently donated two soccer balls to Tshiozwi Dynamos, as part of the team´s development programme for young players. With him in the photograph is Mr Gift Mashau, secretary of Tshiozwi Dynamos. Dynamos have already produced three PSL players: the late Dan "Fire" Munengiwa (Silver Stars), Jeffrey "Soccer" Tshifhango (Dynamos) and Rendani "Amankwa" Mulaudzi (Black Leopards).

No goals for Nobela and Rospa United In their Vodacom Promotional League match at the Malamulele Stadium on Sunday, Rospa United and Nobela All Stars played to a 1-1 draw.

United took the game to their opponents in the opening minutes, but they failed to convert their chances. Nobela gained momentum as the game progressed.

Foster Hlungwani caught the United keeper, Mxo­ lisi Ncube, napping and scored with a long-range half volley. All Stars were reduced to 10 men in the 38th minute.

Modimolle Aces were lucky to escape with a point in their Vodacom Promotional League match against Basel FC at the Malamulele Stadium on Saturday. Although the scoreboard was still blank when the referee blew the final whistle, there was maximum entertainment throughout the game. As usual, Basel squandered countless obvious scoring opportunities, much to the disappointment of the team’s fans. Basel’s vastly experienced striker, Jafta Mabosho, was out of touch and the team���s head coach, Mr Justice Mtileni, blundered by letting Mabosho to play until the end of the first half. The second half saw Aces display entertaining football and thus initiate

some dangerous moves from the middle of the park. Basel replaced Jafta Mabosho and Lebohang Sithole with Reason Maluleke and Khumbudzo Muvhango respectively. Things turned against Aces when their defender, Boy Letoaba, was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence in the 58th minute. Basel later introduced Louis Chauke for Gift Ramaxwaila in a bid to strengthen their striking force. Mashudu Mafunisa of Basel handled the ball within his own penalty box and the referee, Mr Deon Mphuma, awarded a penalty to Aces, but Mfundisi Chauke shot wide. Basel missed a fortune in the dying minutes when Louis Chauke shot straight to Boy Letoaba of Aces was red-carded during the keeper after winning a loose ball. the match.

Nedbank Cup

Can Leopards survive Blackburn Rover’s attack? Giyani Stadium will be the centre of attention tomorrow evening. That is where the Nedbank Cup match between Black Leopards and Blackburn Rovers will be staged. Leopards’ sharpshooter, Rodney Ramagalela, said that they were not underestimating Rovers, although they were campaigning in the National First Division. He indicated that the fact that Rovers were in contention for the league title was reason enough for them not to spare any effort in their preparations for the match. He further indicated that their aim is to move a step further from where they left

off in the same competition last season. Lidoda Duvha reached the final of the competition last season, where they lost 1-3 to Orlando Pirates at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit. “It’s our turn to lift the trophy,” said the confident Ramagalela. The champions for the competition will become R6 million richer. As if that will not be good enough to please their fans, Black Leopards will take their league match to the same venue next Tuesday evening, March 13. They will host Supersport United in a game that is scheduled to kick off at 19:30.

The Leopards’ left back, Humphrey Khoza, will be available for selection in their match against Supersport United. Khoza was given his marching orders when Lidoda Duvha played to a 2-2 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic at the Peter Mokaba Stadium two weeks ago. Supersport will not find it easy to stop the Leopards’ fast forwards in Rodney Ramagalela, Kingston Nkhatha and Thabo Mongalo. Mongalo is in top form lately. He scored a brace when Leopards beat Motor Action 2-0 in their CAF return match at the Rufaro Stadium in Harare, Zimbabwe, last Sunday.
