No-go cemetery? By Andries van Zyl

For many, the Makhado municipal cemetery has become a “no-go” area, following several violent attacks on visitors to the cemetery in recent weeks. Most recently, four members of the Indian community were attacked and robbed by an armed suspect whilst visiting the Muslim part of the cemetery on 27 October. One was a young father who had recently lost his son in an accident. He was accompanied by family friends, traveling in two vehicles and escorted by an armed security guard in a third vehicle. “We parked our cars, walked to the children’s

cemetery and just started praying, when suddenly a man appeared with a gun,” said the father, who did not want to be named in the newspaper. All of them were ordered to lie down on their stomachs and hand over all their money and cell phones. The still grief-stricken father, however, said he decided not to give the robber anything. This prompted the robber to walk up to him, give him a push and to start searching the father. “I told him: ‘You know what, let’s go look in the vehicle?’ I was banking on the armed security guard, who remained seated in his vehicle, to notice what was going on,” said the father. The robber agreed to this and, after clearing out the men’s pockets, escorted the young father back

to his vehicle. “I was walking with my hands in the air, so as to attract attention,” said the father. The guard, however, did not immediately see what was going on, as he was distracted by a telephone call. The father took the robber to the passenger side of the first vehicle, opened the door and showed the robber that there was nothing in the glove compartment. “We then walked over to the driver’s side of the vehicle. I inconspicuously gave two steps back, however, and without the robber’s noticing, indicated to the guard that we were being robbed and that it was one person,” said the father. The father and the robber walked around the security guard’s vehicle. The next moment, the father tackled his attacker while the armed security

guard simultaneously jumped out of his vehicle. “The robber was going for his gun. When he saw the security guard, however, he panicked and took off after I let him go,” said the father. The security guard fired upon the armed robber, but the robber kept running and disappeared into the adjacent bushes. Despite losing some money and their cell phones, the group was happy that they were all alive and reported the matter to the Makhado police. That following Monday, a family friend went to the police station to discuss the issue of attacks at the cemetery with a senior police official. “Unbelievably, the senior official told us that they had arrested a man in Zimbabwe with a bullet wound to his leg.

Residents’ safety when visiting the Makhado municipal cemetery remains a concern, especially following a recent armed robbery.

Makhado fire station in urgent need of upgrade By Isabel Venter

Hulp steeds nodig om koste te dek Dit gaan baie goed met klein Luan Oosthuizen, nadat hy verlede maand by die dood omgedraai het vanweë ‘n ernstige longinfeksie. Danksy baie gebede en donasies kon dokters hom deurtrek, tot groot dankbaarheid van sy ouers, Robert Steyn en Chané Oosthuizen, veral omdat hulle nie oor ‘n mediese fonds beskik nie. Tans is daar steeds ‘n bedrag van sowat R35 000 uitstaande op Luan se mediese rekening. Inwoners word weereens versoek om hul harte en hande oop te maak en te help om die mediese koste te dek. Persone wat belangstel om ‘n donasie te maak, kan vir Rudi Meissenheimer van Tafelrondte Zoutpansberg 66 skakel by tel. 082 776 8377. Die Tafelrondte help om donasies te administreer en alle geld word direk aan die hospitaal betaal. Afgeneem is klein Luan saam met pa Robert en ma Chané ‘n dag voordat hy uit die MediKliniek in Tzaneen ontslaan is. Foto verskaf.

The Vhembe District Municipality (VDM) has once again come under scrutiny, following a fatal accident along the Soutpansberg mountain pass. The remains of the person who passed away in the accident on 19 October, who had been a passenger in the truck, had to be cut loose by the owner of the truck. Local firemen were unable to assist as they simply did not have the necessary equipment with them. According to the Makhado police, it would seem that the driver of the truck lost control, causing his truck to capsize just before the 60km/h sharp bend in the road near the Ingwe Hotel. The driver was on his way to deliver a load of maize meal to a client in the Tshipise area. The driver managed to escape the overturned wreckage with only a broken leg. He was later transferred to the Polokwane Provincial Hospital for treatment. While on the scene, the Zoutpansberger witnessed firemen from the Makhado Fire Station repeatedly asking the owner of the truck, Mr Hannes Wolmarans, for assistance. Neither the firemen nor the police were willing to wait for a towing truck to lift the wrecked cabin. This was despite Wolmarans’ efforts to explain to the police that, in terms of his insurance contract, only one specific company is authorized to tow away the wreck. In the end, Wolmarans had to assist the firemen with one of his own industrial lifts to drag the body from underneath the wreckage. This is not the first time that the Makhado Fire Station has struggled with equipment. In 2015, a truck driver pinned under his overturned truck

passed away while firemen had to struggle with dilapidated equipment that did not function properly. The Makhado Fire Station falls under the jurisdiction of the VDM, which is supposed to allocate a certain amount to the station for repairs and maintenance. Getting money paid from this budget to have repairs done is a lengthy process. Since the accident, the newspaper has been trying to get answers from the VDM to find out if the budget for the Makhado Fire Station has been amended since 2015. This week, the VDM responded to questions and defended the actions of their firemen. According to VDM spokesperson Mr Ralushai Matodzi, the firemen attended the scene only to assess “the state of the accident.” Matodzi further added that in the Wolmarans case, it had been acceptable for the firemen to ask for his assistance. According to legislation (Fire Brigade Service Act No 99 of 1987 as amended in 2000) firemen may, whenever it is necessary, in order to perform their duties, order any inhabitant of the republic who is not younger than 16 years and not older than 60 years to assist in the performance of their duties on any particular occasion. Insofar as it concerns the budget, Matodzi claimed that R700 000 had been set aside to procure new firefighting equipment. “It is correct that the Makhado Fire Station is currently using one set of the Jaws of Life, but the officers on duty are aware that, in the event of another accident, a backup must be requested from other fire stations,” said Matodzi. Matodzi said that the VDM was also waiting for the delivery of a newly purchased fire truck to “beef up” its vehicle fleet. “The procurement process for new firefighting equipment is in progress,” Matodzi added.

Please continue to conserve water Notice

Residents need to continue to conserve water and use this precious resource with the utmost care. This was the warning from the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS), despite reports of rain in some parts of Limpopo. “Provincial dams have not yet fully recovered,” said the DWS in a statement last week. The DWS expressed concern about a decline from 70% (in the previous week) to 69,4%. This

is still a lot better, compared to dam levels that were at 52.8 % during the same period in the previous year. “It is a considerable improvement, compared to last year; however, it is not satisfying enough, hence people must at all times conserve water,” said the DWS. Locally, both the Nandoni and Albasini dam have seen a slight decline from the first week in November to the second week. The Nandoni dam stands at 97.2%, compared to the 97.5% in

the previous week (last year this time it was at a very low 49%). The Albasini stood at a 78.1% this week, slightly down from the 78.5% measured in the previous week. In the previous year, the Albasini was almost halfway empty at 55.6%. The owner of the truck, Mr Hannes Wolmarans, assessed the damage of the overturned truck. “In relation to the provincial Later he had to assist rescue workers, who did not have equipment at the scene, to remove the storage, even though the water remains of an employee who was pinned underneath the cab. levels are still at a satisfying percentage, the province still needs to continue to implement water restrictions, so that reliable water provision is sustained until the rainy season,” said the DWS.

Safety at cemetery a big concern (Contd from P1) “It appeared to be the same man who had attacked us, as my cellphone was allegedly found on him,” said the father. Although a suspect was apparently arrested in connection with the robbery, the father said the issue of safety at the cemetery was an ongoing concern. He referred to other incidents at the cemetery over the last couple of months, which prompted members of the Indian community not to visit the cemetery alone. “We either go in a very large group of people, or arrange for armed security. You just cannot go to the cemetery alone anymore,” said the father. In this case, however, even this precaution did not help. The safety of citizens visiting the Makhado municipal cemetery

is not a new concern. The situation is similar to that experienced at the end of 2015 when several residents were also attacked and robbed whilst visiting the cemetery. In response, municipal spokesperson Mr Louis Bobodi said this week that the municipality was not aware of any attacks at the cemetery. “We will, however, appreciate it if people could come forward with information and report these cases to us as we intend to investigate this unfortunate incident,” said Bobodi. Bobodi added that since the attacks in 2015, the cemetery’s fences had been fixed. There are, however, at present no security guards at the cemetery. “Security was deployed previously, but

currently [the cemetery] is unguarded, so we are going to re-deploy security soonest to guard the cemetery,” said Bobodi. The Makhado SAPS confirmed the robbery on 27 October in their response to an enquiry. “Money and cell phones were stolen,” said police spokesperson Const Irene Radzilane. She added, however, that no arrests have been made, irrespective of reports indicating that the suspect had been arrested in Zimbab­ we. For the interim, Radzilane warned members of the public to be careful when visiting the cemetery. “The public must be vigilant at all times when visiting the cemetery and make sure your vehicles are locked. The police are continuing to monitor the area,” said Radzilane.

As the ANC presidential race heats up, the campaign of one of the main contenders and a son of the soil in the Vhavenda Kingdom, Cyril Ramaphosa, received a major boost when two high-ranking royals in the country gave him the thumbs-up and wished him well in his journey towards the presidency. Ramaphosa, the Deputy President of South Africa, had a triumphant entry to the Vhavenda kingdom over the weekend when thousands of residents gave him a warm welcome during his visit to the area. A well-known businessman from Louis Trichardt, Iqbal Ahmed, was also present to welcome Ramaphosa, when he visited Dzanani on Saturday.



Oom Danie groet rustig in sy slaap In memoriam

Een van die Soutpansberg se kleurvolste oud-inwoners, oom Danie Lourens, is Saterdagaand in die ouderdom van 89 jaar oorlede. Volgens dogter Anne is hy rustig in sy slaap oorlede. Hy het vroeër die aand net gekla dat sy knieë hom bietjie opdraande gee. Oom Danie, of oom Louwtjie soos baie hom ook geken het, het in Oktober 2015 ná 61 jaar op Louis Trichardt gegroet om terug te keer na die Groot Marico-distrik waar hy in 1928 gebore is. Hy het saam met Anne en haar man Johan na Zeerust getrek. In Augustus 2016 het oom Danie weer saam met sy dogter-hulle verhuis, dié keer na Bethlehem in die Vrystaat, waar hy Saterdag oorlede is. In sy 61 jaar hier in Louis Trichardt, het oom Danie egter diep spore in die Soutpansberg getrap. Oom Danie het op 17 Junie 1954 as passer en draaier in Louis Trichardt kom wortelskiet, nadat hy en sy vrou, tannie Kate, hul huis in Suidheuwels, Johannesburg, verkoop het. Die groot rede vir die skuif was sodat tannie Kate haar suster, wat ‘n invalide was, kon help versorg. Vir die eerste paar maande was oom Danie egter werkloos, totdat hy op 1 Oktober 1954 by die plaaslike kragstasie begin werk het. Hy was presies 10 jaar en een maand hier werksaam, waarna hy op 2 November 1964 by die destydse Transvaalse Provinsiale Administrasie as verkeersbeampte begin het. Daar het hy ‘n rekord opgestel deurdat hy tot met sy aftrede as verkeersbeampte op 31 Julie 1993, slegs by een stasie gestasioneer was. Dit is juis as verkeersbeampte wat baie inwoners oom Danie sal onthou. Daar is ook baie staaltjies oor hom. So het oom Danie in lewe self vertel van die man en vrou wat hy op die N1 voor Lalapanzi afgetrek het vir spoed. Die man het uit sy voertuig geklim en teruggestap na oom Danie en die lesing op die gatsometer bevraagteken. Oom Danie het toe voorgestel dat hy [die man] die gatsometer moet beman, terwyl oom Danie weer sal verbyry met die man se voertuig om sodoende die spoedmeter te toets. Oom Danie het na die man se voertuig gestap en ingeklim. Die vrou het egter nie gesien dat dit

nie haar man is wat in die voertuig klim nie. Die volgende oomblik vra die vrou toe vir oom Danie: “So wat sê die ou bliksem?” Oom Danie het ook nie omgegee hoe belangrik ‘n persoon was wanneer hulle ‘n verkeersreël oortree het nie. Hy het selfs vir oud-minister Fanie Botha ‘n verkeerskaartjie vir spoed gegee. Ook sy dogter Anne, by wie hy nou bly, het in 1978 ‘n kaartjie van haar pa gekry omdat sy dubbel parkeer het voor die polisiestasie in Kroghstraat. Buiten vir sy jare diens as verkeersbeampte, was oom Danie ook een van die pioniersfigure in plaaslike resiesduifgeledere. Hy het in 1959 aan sy eerste resiesduifwedvlug deelgeneem en was vir meer as vyf dekades aktief betrokke in die sportsoort, tot sy uittrede in September 2014. As kerkman het oom Danie ook baie gesag afgedwing en was hy vir 57 jaar kerkraadslid van die Hervormde Kerk Louis Trichardt-gemeente. In hierdie 57 jaar kon hy slegs 10 kerkraadsvergade­ rings nie bywoon nie.

Buiten vir sy liefde vir sy werk, posduiwe en kerk, was Schoemansdal ook baie na aan oom Danie se hart, veral as lid van die feeskomitee en die reël van die jaarlikse Geloftefeesvieringe. Vir bykans ‘n dekade was dit elke jaar oom Danie se voorreg om ‘n ruiker op Van Warmelo se vrou se graf tydens Geloftedag op die Schoemansdal Feesterrein te lê. Tannie Kate het oom Danie op 20 Desember 1988 ontval. Oom Danie was met tannie Kate se dood 11 jaar haar jongere. ‘n Paar jaar ná haar dood het die liefde egter weer geblom en is oom Danie op 18 Julie 1992 met tannie Alice getroud. Ongelukkig het tannie Alice hom ook ontval, op 13 Augustus 2008. Wyle oom Danie word eerskomende Donderdag, 9 November, om 10:00 vanuit die Hervormde Kerk Louis Trichardt-gemeente begrawe. Hy word oorleef deur sy dogter Anne, skoonseun Johan, kleinseun Tiaan Buitendag (met eggenote Nicky), kleinseun Danie Scott en vier agterkleinkinders.

Wyle oom Danie Lourens (89).

Former magistrate to testify in own corruption trial Court News

Former regional magistrate Ronnie Rambau is expected to tell all when he will take the stand in his corruption trial in the Messina Magistrate’s Court. Rambau, who stands accused of accepting a bribe to influence a court case, will call his witnesses to the stand this coming Tuesday, 14 November. During an earlier court appearance in August

this year, Rambau had indicated that he still wanted to call two more witnesses to testify on his behalf. One of his witnesses, however, could not be called because of bad health. This witness has since passed away. Despite this, Rambau gave a resolution to the court during a follow-up appearance in October that all his other witnesses will be ready to testify on the date set down for November. Rambau, together with his co-accused, ex-pros-

ecutor prosecutor Estene Willemse and attorney Tivoneleni Edmond Lubisi, faces charges of corruption and conspiracy to commit corruption. They were arrested during a police trap in February 2010. The trap was set within the Musina area, with the aim of catching corrupt officials who sabotaged the course of justice by pre-determining the sentence of vehicle theft cases by means of a plea agreement. The three accused allegedly also received bribe money in murder and rape cases.

Saak teen sakeman word uitgestel tot einde Januarie Hofnuus

Danie Pita (46) het verlede Vrydag weer vlugtig in die Louis Trichardt Distrikshof verskyn. Pita is op 31 Augustus gearresteer deur die Valke, nadat daar militêre plofstof en ammunisie op ‘n sakeperseel van hom in Kortstraat, Louis Trichardt, gevind is. Volgens die Valke het hulle

het op ‘n wenk gereageer dat daar plofstof op die perseel versteek word. In totaal het die ondersoekspan beslag gelê op 552 R4-rondtes, een granaat, ses rookgranate, drie leë R1-magasyne en vyf potjiefakkels. Pita is vyf dae ná sy arrestasie op 5 September vrygelaat op borg van R5 000. Buiten die klag van die onwettige besit van plofstof en ‘n klag van

die onwettige besit van ammunisie, is daar ook ‘n klag van die besit van ‘n onwettige vuurwapen teen Pita gebring. Laasgenoemde klag is ná die tyd deur die Staat teruggetrek, omdat die Valke nie op enige vuurwapens beslag gelê het nie. Pita se saak is verlede Vrydag uitgestel tot en met 29 Januarie 2018. Die ondersoekspan het aangevoer dat hulle meer tyd nodig het om hul ondersoek af te handel.

24 NOVEMBER 2017

Wat ‘n Kaapse aftree-avontuur moes wees, het vir die bekende en geliefde Botha-egpaar, Fritz (72) en Marjory (69), in tragedie geëindig, met Marjory wat verlede week aan limfoomkanker gesterf het. Die Bothas het in Desember hul huis in President Steynstraat, Louis Trichardt, verkoop en sou vir twee jaar in die Wes-Kaap rondkamp, voordat hulle sou besluit waar om hul permanente aftreeplekkie te koop. Volgens hul oudste dogter, Alida Buckle (46), het hulle drie wonderlike maande in Leentjiesklip by Langebaan aan die Weskus spandeer, waar hulle die rustigheid van aftrede kon beleef, voordat Marjory in April met limfoomkanker gediagnoseer is. “Dit was reeds in ‘n gevorderde stadium, maar ten spyte daarvan het my ma die chemo-behandeling aangepak. Sy was tot op die laaste nog vas van plan om die kanker te oorwin,” het Alida gesê. Die Bothas het hulle in 1986 eers in Levubu en later in Louis Trichardt kom vestig. Marjory was deur die jare by

The man accused of fatally stabbing a po­liceman from the Makhado SAPS brief­ ly appeared in the Louis Trichardt Ma­ gi­s trate’s Court on Tues­day. Fhumulani Simali (30) is accused of at­t ack­i ng and fatally stabbing detective W/O Nthambeleni Andrew Mudau (59) on 22 October at a residence in Louis Trichardt. Investigations into what exactly happened that fateful day are still ongoing. According to the police’s provincial spokesperson, Lt-Col Moatshe Ngoepe, Mudau was murdered by a suspect who was sought for a variety of charges, which include assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm and theft out of a motor vehicle. On Tuesday, Simali’s case was transferred from the district to the re­gional court. He was not asked to bring a bail application and will remain in custody until his next court appearance on 1 December.

verskeie skole, die Tshisimani Onderwyskollege en afdelings van die onderwysdepartement betrokke en was met haar amptelike aftrede in 2014 Limpopo se hoofeksaminator. Sy het van 2014 tot 2016 weer laerskoolkinders by die Emmanuel Christian School onderrig. “Om kinders te leer was haar passie. Sy was teen die einde van elke jaar so lief vir elke kind, self die stoutes,” het Alida gesê. Marjory se dood het vir eggenoot Fritz as groot skok gekom. “My pa is platgeslaan. My ma was so seker dat sy gesond sou word dat hulle reeds bespreek het om volgende jaar met die Sinfonia te gaan vaar. Ons vermoed dat sy ‘n voorgevoel gehad het dat die einde naby is, maar tog nooit ophou hoop het nie,” het Alida gesê. Fritz, al die jare in die boubedryf, was ouderling in die Hervormde Kerk en Marjory was vir baie jare die koster. Benewens Frits en Alida, laat sy ook haar seun, Hano (43), dogter Susan (32), en drie kleinkinders, Neo (17), Marcus (16) en Blaze (13) agter. ‘n Roudiens word Donderdag, 11:30, vanuit die Hervormde Kerk in Louis Trichardt vir Marjory gehou.

BASIC ASSESSMENT FOR THE CLOSURE OF TSHIKONDENI COAL MINE, LIMPOPO PROVINCE BASIC ASSESSMENT yA U VALwA HA MINE wA TSHIKONDENI COAL MINE, LIMPOPO PROVINCE Tshikondeni Coal Mine (TCM), which is part of Exxaro Coal (Pty) Ltd (Exxaro) is situated in the north-eastern corner of the Limpopo Province of South Africa. A portion of the mining lease area lies directly adjacent to the Makuya Nature Reserve, where the remaining portion falls within the reserve area. The Makuya Nature Reserve has since taken over the management of the portion that falls within their borders. TCM is also located approximately 140 km by road from the town of Musina and approximately 16km from the town of Masisi. Project Background and Description Until 2014, TCM produced approximately 316 kilo tonnes per annum premium coal, using underground and open pit mining methods. Once mined the coal was processed / beneficiated within the mining lease area. As part of the processing of the mined material, the coal would be separated from waste rock. The processed coal was then transported from the beneficiation plant via road to the Musina railway siding, from the siding it was transported to ArcelorMittal works located at Vanderbijlpark for use in the production of steel. Coal extraction at all underground workings and the three mini-pits has already ceased and the mini-pits have been backfilled and rehabilitated. TCM has depleted its mineable reserves and is in the process of decommissioning the mine and its associated coal beneficiation infrastructure with the objective of ultimate rehabilitation and closure of the site. The aim of the Basic Assessment process under National Environmental Management Act 1998 (Act 107 of 1998) (NEMA) as amended, is therefore to assist TCM in proactively planning for closure and have a plan in place to relinquish the mine in a safe and environmentally-sound manner that contributes to sustainable development of the immediate area. Digby Wells Environmental (Digby Wells) will develop a Basic Assessment and Environmental Management Plan for the closure of TCM that complies with all the requirements as set down in the regulations under NEMA. The Closure Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) was prepared in terms of Section 43 and Regulation 57 of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, 2002 (Act No. 28 of 2002) (MPRDA), as amended and was initially submitted to the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) for consideration in December 2014 and again in December 2016 after some outstanding issues was addressed. The CEMP has since been approved by the DMR under the MPRDA however following a request from the DMR, the public consultation for the Basic Assessment process now needs to be completed. How to Comment on the Report: The Closure Basic Assessment will be available for public comment from 13th November to 13th December 2017 on the Digby Wells website ( under Public Documents and a copy is also available for review at the main entrance to the mine.

In such cases it will be necessary to send us the negatives, which we will then quickly scan. The film negatives must accompany all entries, but these will be returned to the photographer.

Debo Motors in Musina presents Private bus route between Tzaneen and Musina from January 2018

The region’s camera enthusiasts can start entering their photos for the Zoutpansberger and Limpopo Mirror’s annual calendar competition. As was the case last year, the competition has a bit of a twist, as there is a limitation on the type of cameras eligible for use. Last year the requirement was that photos needed to be taken with cameras 50 years and older. This was quite a challenge, but the end result was one of the most interesting calendars ever locally produced. Local photographers were encouraged to use vintage cameras, some of them dating back almost 100 years. The limitation for this year’s competition is slightly less stringent, as any photo taken with a film camera can be entered. The medium is blackand-white, which excludes all colour photos. The theme is, as usual, the Soutpansberg, meaning that photos not depicting the beauty and character of the region will not be considered. One of the aims of the competition is once again to promote an interest in vintage photography. For that reason, the newspaper makes available its selection of antique cameras to readers. Most of the roughly 150 cameras on display can still be used. Several outings have been organised during which enthusiasts were shown how to use such old cameras. At least two more outings are planned for November. People interested in taking part in the competition are encouraged to contact the newspaper’s office at 015 516 4996/7 and speak to Anton, Andries or Isabel. Own (film) cameras can be used or a camera may be borrowed. The easiest would be to collect film from the newspaper and we will develop it. Film and the developing chemicals are The 2017 calendars was one of the most in­ also available from several online stores, but it costs teresting ever produced. For 2018 it again has a around R130 per film. Costs are being kept low as vintage theme, but any film camera may be used.

Oom Jackie en Tannie Elsa Smit van Levubu vier op Vrydag, 10 November, hul 61ste huweliksherdenking. Dié egpaar woon al vir die laaste 53 jaar op Levubu, waar oom Jackie met avokados geboer het. Voor dit was hy vir jare betrokke as inspekteur van uitvoervrugte by die destydse Departement van Landbou. Dis deur sy werk as inspekteur dat hy tannie Elsa in Pietersburg ontmoet het in April 1954 toe die departement hom verplaas het na Zebediela. Twee jaar later is hulle in die NG Kerk op Pietersburg in die eg verbind. Hierna het oom Jackie vanaf 1957 tot 1964 in Tzaneen gewerk vir die departement. In Februarie 1964 het die gesin verhuis na Levubu. Uit hulle huwelik is vyf seuns gebore, naamlik Kobus, André, Gerhard, Jacques en Ian, wat oom Jackie en tannie Elsa geseën het met 12 kleinkinders en vier agterkleinkinders. Hulle geheim, lap oom Jackie uit, is wedersydse respek en harde werk. “Moet nooit in die aand gaan slaap as julle kwaad is vir mekaar nie,” het oom Jackie gesê. Foto verskaf.

Die Suid-Afrikaanse Nasionale Bloeddiens (SANBD) staar tans ‘n kritieke bloedtekort in die gesig, omdat daar nie tans baie bloedskenkingsveldtogte by skole en universiteite gehou kan word nie weens eksamens. Die SANBD het in ‘n persverklaring verlede Woensdag bekendgemaak dat daar ’n kritieke tekort aan bloed is regoor die land. In daardie stadium was daar slegs 1 473 groep O-eenhede beskikbaar, slegs genoeg vir 1.5 dae. In KwaZulu-Natal was die situasie selfs meer benard, met minder as een dag se beskikbare bloedvoorraad. Dit word beskou as ’n krisis wanneer bloedvoorraad daal tot op die punt waar daar minder as twee dae se voorraad beskikbaar is. “Die land se bloedvoorraad is gevaarlik laag. Dit staan tans op minder as 1.5 dae se groep O-voorraad, in vergelyking met ‘n goeie bloedvoorraad van 3 000 eenhede of vyf dae se bloed,” het Silungile Mlambo, nasionale bemarkingsbestuurder van die SANBD, in die verklaring gesê. Mlambo het gesê dat bloed lewensnoodsaaklik is vir kankerpasiënte en vroue wat geboorte skenk. Dié twee groepe maak ook die grootste gedeelte uit van mense wat bloedoortappings nodig het. Die SANBD het ‘n dringende beroep op Suid-Afrikaners gedoen om onmiddellik bloed te gaan skenk. “Meer as dit, ons vra alle Suid-Afrikaners om gereelde skenkers te word. Deur net vier keer ‘n jaar bloed te skenk, kan ons maklik situasies vermy soos die een waarin ons onsself tans bevind,” het Mlambo gesê. Om meer oor bloedskenking uit te vind en waar die naaste SANBD-bloedskenksentrum is, besoek of skakel 0800 11 90 31.

Bloedtekort word krisis



I am ... the Way, the Truth and the life


Christian Discipleship.


hat is Christian discipleship? It is someone drawn by the Father to follow the Lord Jesus (John 6:44). It involves a counting of the cost and a total commitment to Him. The cost and condition of discipleship. No one should be allowed to embark upon discipleship without first counting the cost (Matt 19:21). Our Lord went to great trouble to underline its demands (Luke 14:25-33). The love we have for people, and the desire we may have that they should become disciples, must not mean that we neglect to make them count the cost (Mark 10:21). The basic principle is that we cannot serve two masters (Matt. 6:24). Discipleship involves the abandonment of everything that would take Christ’s place in a person’s life (Mark 10: 21). Discipleship begins with a renunciation, and it is not intended that the act of renunciation should be left until later (Matt 19:21). Looking back is no more possible for a disciple than it is for someone who flees persecution (Luke 17:31), or for anyone who puts a hand to the plough and looks back (Luke 9:62). Discipleship means a sincere acknowledgement of the Lordship of Christ (Matt 7:21-27; Luke 6:46). Discipleship also means a life of devotion to Christ; the relationship we have with Him has priority over every other relationship (Matt 12:49-50; Luke 8:21). Discipleship also means the acceptance of the principle of dying to self (John 12:2326). Only when the principle of dying to self is genuinely accepted, can there be a true readiness for trials and persecution (Matt 5:10-12; Mark 8:34-37). Discipleship means doing the will of the Father, and to this end the Word of God must be both listened to and obeyed (Matt 12:48-50). - 079 516 8303

Nog ‘n tipiese geval waaroor daar gereeld ge­ kla word, is Louis Trichardt se water (of gebrek daaraan). Dikwels moet die groot boetie (hetsy die koerant, die DA of AfriForum) inspring en help en die probleem rapporteer én regsien. Meneer, en ja jy mevrou wat so kla, weet jy nie hoe werk die telefoon toepassing waarmee jy sekondes terug op Facebook jou lot bekla het nie?? Die bekende evangelis Lukas Korff het op 20 Oktober bietjie met die kinders by Laerskool So is dit ook met Louis Trichardt se misdaadMessina kom praat. Hy is vergesel deur pastoor Jimmy Venter van die Volle Evangelie Kerk in gevalle. Musina. Die doel van Korff se besoek was om die jong leerlinge te motiveer. Afgeneem is, van “Waarsku almal!” sal ‘n tipiese boodskap links na regs, Phenyo Legwabe (onderhoofseun), Annika Pretorius (onderhoofmeisie), Korff, dit ten hemele uit roep. Gewoonlik is vriend of past. Jimmy, Jané Naudé (hoofmeisie) en Kyle Greig (hoofseun). Foto verskaf. familielid aangeval. “Wees tog asseblief paraat,” sal die boodskap dan mee afsluit. (Moet tog asseblief nie hier verkeerd verstaan nie; misdaad is ‘n euwel wat uitgeroei moet word). “Almal” word mos gewaarsku of hoe? Maar wat van ou tannie Sarie en oom Piet wat onder in die straat af bly? Tegnologie is vir hulle ‘n selfoon en Facebook is die ding waarin die kleinkinders se foto’s gebêre word. Plaaslik is daar ook nie so iets soos ‘n Facebook patrollie wat die heeldag kan sit en kyk waar misdaad aangemeld word nie. Dit is ook in my opinie nie regverdig om die polisie te wil kruisig oor halfgebakte werk as die misdaadklag dit net so ver as ‘n Facebook-pos maak nie.

start afresh to rectify what you couldn’t achieve at first. We need to stress the importance of education because it is the backbone of prosperity and knowledge.” An SGB member, Mr Mpho Mphilo, told the pupils how he and others like him had defeated the odds to become successful in life. He told them that they, too, could succeed if they worked hard, planned and stayed focused. The “role models” included engineers, businessmen and medical doctors from rural villages around the area, and all had a similar story to tell: “One can succeed despite one’s background”.

Pupils from Soutpansberg Pri­mary School received trophies and certificates for outstanding achievements in different categories during an awards ceremony held at the school last Thursday evening. The principal of the school, Ms Adri Kloppers said that the ceremony was aimed at promoting cleanliness, dedication, faithfulness, self-esteem and a sense of value among the pupils. “Parents should check their children’s school work frequently, so that they are able to contribute to their performance in the classroom,” she added. She appealed to pupils who are struggling to succeed not to give up. “Don’t waste time in creating excuses. An unnecessary excuse will not make you an achiever,” she said. She also mentioned the suspected use of muti to help pupils to achieve better results. “Pupils and teachers had to sweat it out to reap the rewards at the end of the year,” she added. She encouraged the pupils to take education seriously, so that they could face the challenges of the future with ease. She said the parents must cooperate with the Department of Education and other stakeholders for the benefit of education in the country. “Failure does not necessarily mean that one Mukundi Thangavhuelelo, the sports girl has to stop pursuing your dreams. Failure gives of the year, receives her tropy from Ms Vu­ you the opportunity to realise your mistakes and ledzani Kutama.

Phoenix beat LTT in Premier clash Cricket News

Louis Trichardt’s first cricket side suffered another defeat on Sunday when Phoenix (Modadjiskloof) beat them by 54 runs in a Premier League clash. Phoenix batted first in the 50-over clash and put up a very decent total of 279/5. Their opening pair, Gideon Swanepoel (78) and Mauritz Perold (39), put up a good partnership from where an attack in the middle order could be launched. This was very effectively done by Imran Badar (44) and Franco Oberholzer (55), with Ettienne Wahl adding a useful 25 runs at the end. Louis Trichardt’s most successful bowlers were FC Phillipson (2/19 in 2 overs) and Ettienne van Heerden (2/71 in 10 overs). Vimal Shah (1/28 in 9 overs) and Hamid Dukanwala (0/19 in 6 overs) were very economical. AJ Fourie (23) and Louis van Jaarsveld (11)

combined well to get Louis Trichardt’s innings started, but the first three wickets fell fairly quickly. Nimesh Watekar (65) and Christo Gerber (25) gave the home side some hope. Nimesh was in destructive mode, hitting seven fours and two sixes. Once these two departed, wickets fell in quick succession. At the end, Ettienne van Heerden (20) and FC Phillipson (22) added some spark, but they could not hold out until the end. The last wicket fell in the 43rd over with Louis Trichardt still 54 runs short of a victory. Phoenix’s most successful bowlers were Andre de Beer (3/21 in 5 overs) and Imran Badar (3/35 in 8 overs). Franco Oberholzer (2/31 in 6 overs) and Aubrey van Reenen (2/30 in 7.1 overs) also played their part. This coming Sunday, Louis Trichardt’s side will travel to the Duivelskloof oval to play against Nkowankowa.
