Soccer star Ishmael to captain a new team By Frank Mavhungu Among the recipients of a diploma in theology during the 16th diploma ceremony of the Kingdom School of Ministry at Tshifulanani last Saturday was the former football star Ishmael Maluleke. Born in Malamulele 39 years ago, Maluleke started playing football at the age of seven. At that stage, he was playing for the development side of Langutani Blue Birds. He did not get the chance to play for the senior team of Blue Birds, as there was a lot of talent in the camp at the time. That forced him to go and try his luck with Giyani United. He later moved to Ngobe Leeds United. After passing Grade 12, Malulele enrolled for a diploma in sports management and marketing at the Durban University of Technology. While at university, Maluleke did not forget his God-given talent for football. He played for the university soccer team for a year before joining African Wanderers, where he played alongside well-known strikers Siyabonga Nomvete and Phumlani Mkhize. That was the starting point of his professional football career. He then moved from one club to the other, including Manning Rangers, Mamelodi Sundowns, Highlandspark Silver Stars, Jomo Cosmos, Amazulu and Thanda Royal Zulu. After obtaining his qualification in sports management and

marketing, Maluleke worked for several companies before coming back home four years ago. While at home, Maluleke dedicated much of his time to ministering, since he was born into a Christian family. When his mother, Dr Khensani Selina Maluleke, decided to establish a new branch of her church, The Solomon Porch Tabernacle Church, in Giyani two years ago, Ishmael was given the responsibility to lead the congregation. Realising that he was leading the flock without the relevant qualifications, Maluleke enrolled for a diploma in theology at the Kingdom School of Ministry early last year. Apart from ministering, Maluleke is presently working as sports analyst for Munghana Lonene FM. He said his dream was to become a world-acclaimed motivational speaker.

Vuwani calm after brief shutdown supposed to have started at 09:00 only started after some hours, as a result of the delayed arrival of MEC Makhurupetje. Residents marched from the Hasibudi cross next to Vyeboom to the nearby local municipal offices, where they handed over a memorandum detailing their concerns and demands to the MEC. Makhurupetje was in the company of Makhado Mayor Shonisani Sinyosi, Thulamela Speaker Cllr Humbulani Mulovhedzi, acting Vhembe Mayor Rudzani Ludere and Vhembe Speaker Cllr Frieda Nkondo. She diffused what could have been a volatile situation as she immediately shut down all operations by Lim345, which included the traffic station, municipal offices and the local community hall. Responding after receiving the memorandum, Makhurupetje said she would come back to the community of Vuwani after seven days to discuss the possible alternatives of service-delivery mech-

anisms that are available that could be used that the community would be satisfied with. “We have agreed with the residents to shut down all services rendered by Lim345 immediately, until such time we meet and discuss service delivery issues,” she said. Pro-Makhado Task Team’s Nsovo Sambo said they were happy the government had listened to them but reiterated his call for the demarcation board to speed up the process of reversing their inclusion into the new Malamulele Municipality. Residents dispersed peacefully, with no incidents of violence reported. Meanwhile, all other services, including schooling, have gone back to normal in Vuwani, with people going on with their everydayl lives. Limpopo police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo said the police would remain in the vicinity until such time they were satisfied there was peace in the area.

Services in Vuwani were brought to a standstill on Monday as renewed protest broke out in the area. Things returned to normality after the quick intervention of Cooperative Governance MEC Makoma Makhurupetje, who listened to the demands of the residents. The residents made it clear last year when negotiations with the government started that no services should be provided by the new municipality, Lim345. Pro-Makhado Task Team spokesperson Nsovo Sambo said the government was negotiating in bad faith as they had started with implementations under the new municipality. “We realised that things were going on behind our backs. Everything in this area was being changed to Lim345 Municipality. Services were being rendered by the same municipality we do not recognise. We were left with no option but to embark on a total shutdown to remind them that we remain resolute and want to be taken back to Makhado and Thulamela Municipality. This is what brought us back to the streets.” Earlier on Monday morning, thousands of residents, including school children who did not go to school, braved the rain and chilly weather to have their demands heard. As early as 07:00, residents started arriving at the meeting place, where they chanted anti-Malamulele slogans. Different units of the police were on high alert and were strategically placed around the town.

People no longer go there for worship, but to be fed grass, drink petrol and eat snakes, among other things. As government we will soon be checking on what is happening at these churches.” A Zimbabwean national, said to be a prophet, Richard Mlambo (40) of Bashasha in the Mutale area, stands accused of murdering Lufuno Mandevu.

with them in the upgrading of the museum, saying many improvements had been done at the site. He also urged residents to guard jealously against the vandalization of the infrastructure at the respected heritage site. He further indicated that there was a need for vernacular languages to be taught at all schools. Sports Arts and Culture MEC Ms Onica Moloi said the government had committed itself to upgrading all the museums and heritage sites in the province for them to meet international standards. She further indicated that the heritage celebrations should include all the ethnic groups

in the province and not the Vhavenda only. “This we should do in order to enhance social cohesion in the province where all cultural groups could meet and interact with each other,” he said. Moloi further said stories about their culture were not told and they would love to see an increase in Tshivenda movies that would tell their stories. She also said the province needed to move with speed in renaming most of the places. “We are in consultation with traditional leaders, so that they give us a database of warriors and heroines of this province, so that places could be named after them,” she added.

Thousands of residents from around Vhembe and outside gathered at the Dzata Ruins at Vhutuwangadzebu in the Nzhelele area on Saturday for the annual Dzata Day celebrations. The ceremony was organized by King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana, with the support of the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture in Limpopo. Traditional dances, foods, drinks and praise singing for all traditional leaders were the order of the day. Thovhele Gole Mphaphuli read the history of Dzata, while a marula beer-tasting ceremony, led by King Mphephu Ramabulana, also took place. As per custom, commoners taste the marula drink first before the king partakes. Guests were also taken on a tour of the heritage site. Mphephu Ramabulana said the day would remain an integral part of the Vhavenda nation and that it would be celebrated forever. “The Vhavenda nation is not a lost nation. This is the reason why we give ourselves time to come and gather here. We are now urging parents to allow their children to attend such events, where they will learn more about their culture,” said the king. Mphephu thanked the government for partnering Traditional dances formed part of the proceedings during the event at Dzata.

The colour of your skin plays a big part, also determining whether or not you will pass the exams.” Richwoman argues that, Thovhedzo Richwoman started dreamalthough many ing about working in the mines at an blacks are workearly age.

ing hard at universities to get degrees and get good jobs in the mining industry, those of white skin colour gets preferential treatment. “The book highlights the stages I went through to achieve what I had set out to achieve,” said Richwoman in an interview. “It also takes the reader through different experiences that I went through in my endeavour to get to the top in the mining industry. It shows the frustrations I had to go through from continuously failing exams and not being awarded passes for exams initially passed.” She believes that her dreams were initially crushed by the “oppressors” through an organised network of diplomatic racism. She found herself imprisoned in hatred, resentment, low confidence, bitterness and confusion. In the book, the reader is taken on a journey she believes that God had taken her. She tries to illustrate how He taught her to forgive those she believed had wronged her and how she scored an unexpected victory. “People still pretend there are no race issues in South Africa and this is what made me decide to highlight what I had faced in the mining industry,” she said. “After reading this book, black professionals will hopefully know how to get the attention from the right authorities to resolve the problem of being downgraded or oppressed in the mining field,” she said. She believes that, like it had happened in her case, transformation is possible in every mining company.

Spelling error causes tears for girl By Elmon Tshikhudo A 20-year-old learner from Shayandima Secondary School says she worked very hard in order to pass her examinations last year. Suprice Muruge of Shayandima outside Thohoyandou might soon find that her Grade 12 certificate is worthless as the names on the certificate do not match those on her identity document. She wrote her Grade 12 examinations last year and has since registered for a tourism course at Vhembe TVET College. According to her, her woes started last year when they were asked to submit their particulars at Shayandima Secondary School, which she did. “I did as required and found that my particulars were not what I had submitted, as my surname was spelt Murege instead of Muruge. She said that she reported it to the principal “who said I should again submit certified copies, which I did. All along I thought my things were fixed, but to my dismay, the same mistake appears on my results.” Muruge said that she went back to her former school, where the principal allegedly told her that she had done her part and could not help her again. She further indicated that instead of helping her, the principal wrote a letter that she should take to the Department of Education in Polokwane. “I was so surprised and felt helpless, because I have done nothing wrong as I have submitted all they wanted. How on earth do I have to go to Polokwane for the mistake that was done by the school?” According to her, she is from a very poor family “and I am also struggling to make it to college as my mother is not working. I feel that the principal is being unjust to me. The worst part of it is that I do not even know where Polokwane is and do not have the money that might be needed there,” she said.

The girl’s aunt, Pfarelo Manyikana, said the problem was impacting very negatively on her. “She is a very active girl, but since this happened, she has become very withdrawn and she is always by herself. She really needs help as this could ruin her dreams for the future,” she said. Limpopo education spokesperson Dr Naledzani said it was wrong for the school to send the learner to Polokwane for the changes. “We give schools plenty time to verify the particulars of learners before the examinations and this is a surprise if it really happened. The school should help her, or she can call the office of the Vhembe education district director Dr Gerson Rambiyana, where she will be helped.”

Suprice Muruge shows the letter her school gave her to take to Polokwane. She said that she had no money for transport and did not know where Polokwane was.

In 2013, during his final year at music-production and sound-engineering school, Emendy Technology Institute, he won ‘Emendy’s Got Talent’, proving his undeniable talent to the judges and audience alike. The single was co-produced by Tondi Rams and C-Tea, a Ghanaian producer and music artist. Caroline will be distributed to the fans for free on AudioMack and Soundcloud, and will also be for sale on iTunes, Google play, Amazon and other online music platforms. He is also available on social networks. Fans can follow him @tondirams and on Facebook, at tondi rams.

By Prudence Bopape The future looks rosy and bright for local musician Lucky Mashudu Munyembeni, better known by his stage name StageBox Lentheric. According to observers, he is taking Limpopo music to new heights in the music industry. StageBox released his third album last year. The name of the recent album is Long Walk To Stardom, with the hit song Am loving her. This song originated from the old theme song of MacDonald’s - it is both enticing and very interesting to listen to. Long walk to stardom is an album that consists of eight mesmerising tracks that feature the likes of Gaby Gbaby and Bee Kay, both from Gfam entertain-

on his way to

stardom

ment. On the day the album was released, 16 May 2016, Stagebox managed to sell many copies of his album - to such an extent that it earned him a booking from Afri-Dzonga Music Awards. Before he embarked to Afri-Dzonga, he first volunteered to perform for the charity Miss Dolls and Divas, which was hosted by Mrs Globe Carol Mabasa. This talented musician comes from Musina and started off his career as a soccer player; however, his true calling was music.

Through his dedication, passion and love for music he performed and left his fans yearning for more. As for 2017, he started with a bang by introducing his new website for all his fans, which is designed in a rather creative manner that is very broad, distinct and inviting at the same time (www. stageboxkonnect.co.za). This website consists of his accounts for both music, videos and his page, “I pray and wish that I get more bookings this year, more

specifically at show grounds,” says StageBox. For bookings, StageBox can be phoned on 0817954040/ 0729051740 or contacted via e-mail at sb.aceinspace@gmail.com.

Fifth album for gospel favourite, Maru By Kaizer Nengovhela Well-known gospel singer Marubini Rahulani, known as Maru, recently released a new album, Thendo Dzavho. She started her with performances as a member of the choir of the Apostolic Faith Mission Church in Vuwani 1992. Her first album, Atshidovhonal, hit the airwaves in 2005. It proved all the critics wrong as the first print of the album was sold out within some few months. It was followed by Jordan (2010), Thiathuvhona in 2014 and her new offering. Thendo Dzavho has 14 tracks and, at this stage, the songs on the album that are in demand are Ndofukufhela murena, Ndo lugela and Tshilidzi. Her albums and a DVD

created a large fan base. Maru says her new album is a gift to all her loyal fans who continued to support her through thick and thin. “I wanted to take a rest, but pressure from my fans forced me to go back to the studio to record this album. The album is a tribute to all my fans who have been supporting me for the past 11 years in the music industry. I will continue to give them good music because they are the ones who made me what I am,” she says. Maru says she is working on her investment plan to plough back her musical knowledge to the youth. “I will engage in a talent search and conduct music workshops around Limpopo during the school holidays. My immediate dream is to establish a recording company that will help to unearth, mould and give an opportunity to

rural youths to realize their music potential.” She is concerned to see that there are young people who consume liquor and others are using drugs. She feels that, with God in a person’s life, it is not necessary to use artificial sources such as drugs to become happy. She also states that, even though she has not gone far in terms of education, she has come to realize the importance of education and always encourages the young ones to put education first.

The producer of Tshiko and a reggae presenter on Phalaphala FM, Tshililo Donald “Bingi Ras” Khanari, will present Koze Kuse live on SABC 1 on 17 February. Khanari will share his favourite music with Phalaphala FM listeners and SABC 1 viewers at 00:00. During the show, Khanari will present his Top 10 playlist and will introduce each music video. A spokesperson for the radio station said that it was an opportunity for radio fans to see their favourite SABC personalities on television and experience the best in local music. Khanari started his journey in radio at Univen Radio in 2005 as newsreader and field reporter. He became the presenter of the Current Matters and Reggae Beat programmes and also had a short stint as production manager for about a year. He said that his time at the campus radio had been an excellent experience. He said that was born not to be only a radio presenter/producer, but also a media man. A cameraman of note, Khanari also cut his teeth on writing as a contributing scribe for the Univen in-house magazine Nendila, the Thulamela newsletter, Rise and Shine, and the Valley Messenger newspapers. “Writing is just something ingrained in me. Many a

time I expressed my deep emotions through writing,” says the energetic producer. In 2008 he joined the SABC as a presenter for SABC Education’s development and learner support. As a presenter, Khanari is live on air between 12:00 and 14:00 on Saturdays and promises to give the listeners the best of reggae sounds in “Muzika wa Reggae”. About the music he says: “Reggae gives me the much-needed spiritual connection with the Creator of mankind, social consciousness and historical reawakening. He enjoys working at Tshiko (current affairs). “At Current affairs, you must make sure that you inform listeners correctly. One thing is that you work for 24 hours per day. Wherever you are, you are on duty, because if something happens related to the news, you need to report it.” He also said that he had been taught to believe in his dreams and himself. When he is not working, he loves reading and writing. Part of his plan is to harness his skills as a radio presenter. His message to young people is always to put education first. “Go to school, find out what you want and go after it. Never let anyone tell you that you cannot do something; believe in yourself,” he concluded.

Prudence joins the news office as Zoutnet intern By Mbulaheni Ridovhona

ism is a challenging career, Prudence is ready to conquer those challenges lying ahead of her. “I am always up for a challenge. I believe that determination is the key to excellence,” she added.

A new face graces the office of the Limpopo Mirror and Zoutpansberger. The 23-year-old Prudence Bopape from Ha-Masia village joined the Zoutnet newsroom as an intern on the 1st of February. Prudence completed her Bachelor of Arts degree, specialising in communications, at the Northwest University. Her passion for journalism developed while she was still studying at High School Louis Trichardt. “Since I was in Grade 7, I have always been passionate about writing. I started off by writing just poems and from there I progressed to writing short stories,” she explained. At this stage, none of her stories has been published, “but I do plan that one day I will publish something that will blow people’s minds,” she said. She believes in the notion that a good reader makes an excellent writer. “Reading novels, short stories and newspaper articles sharpened my passion for writing,” she added. She further added that writing was Prudence Bopape (23), the new journalher calling. ism intern at Zoutnet Publishers. Even though journal-

Wilmary Christian Learning Centre gives recognition to top achievers By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho “All great achievements started as small initiations, which were nurtured until they became concrete achievements which could be seen by all people.” Those were the words of Pastor Willie Mphilo when he was addressing teachers from Wilmary Christian Learning Centre during a recent gala dinner at Northgate Lodge. The school’s board of directors hosted a dinner for the educators in celebration of their continued dedication and hard work. The school managed to score a 100% pass rate in the 2016 matric results. “I was part of the team which gave this school full support when it was initiated,” Mphilo said. “I am proud and confident to say that, as people,

we must not despise small beginnings because all great achievements start from small beginnings.” The representative of the educators, Ms Fiso Moyo, said that it had not been an easy road for the school to get where it was. “We are not just being mentioned as among best schools in the area for nothing,” she said. “It’s the kind of healthy environment which we create for ourselves here in the school that helps us stay in unity. When teachers are unified, the pupils are bound to get the best education.” She added that all individuals working in the centre formed an integral part of the school and its success. In response, the principal Mr Livingstone Hatuugari urged all teachers to continue to work as a team and stay united all the time.

Pastor Willie Mphilo says that eductors need to work as a team.

Early morning traffic in Louis Trichardt’s Songozwi Street came to an almost complete stop on Tuesday morning after a multi-vehicle crash at the President Street crossing. This crossing, as well as the Songozwi/Grobler Street crossing, are notorious for accidents – mainly due to driver negligence. The crash involved a luxury Mercedes Benz SUV, minibus-taxi, passenger bus and sedan. Makhado police spokesperson Const Irene Radzilane later confirmed that a case of reckless or negligent driving is being investigated against the driver of the Mercedes who was traveling in a west-to-east direction in Songozwi Street. She said that it is alleged that he had failed to stop at the red traffic light, slamming into the minibus-taxi that was busy crossing the intersection. The taxi spun out of control, colliding with the stationary sedan and passenger bus, who were waiting their turn at the red light to travel up Songozwi Street. Miraculously, nobody died in the accident, but two people sustained minor injuries, one of whom had to be taken to hospital for treatment.

Hundreds of officials take part in Wellness Day Health News Hundreds of municipal employees, representatives from sector departments and the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) took part in the Musina Municipality’s Wellness Day, which was recently held at the Skoonplaas Stadium. The event started with a 10km fun walk, followed by aerobics and several sports activities. Municipal spokesperson Wilson Dzebu said the annual initiative was aimed at encouraging municipal employees to lead a healthy life. “Musina

Municipality takes the health of its employees as their number one priority. When you have healthy and physically fit staff members, their performance becomes good – thereby accelerating the wheel of service delivery.” Dzebu said the annual wellness day provided intervention that would build employees’ capacity to deal with problems and allow them to take responsibility for their own health and to improve the image of the municipality within the community. He said exercise reduced the chances of being attacked by opportunistic diseases. “We encourage

our employees to exercise regularly and consult health workers whenever they notice any symptoms of opportunistic diseases.” According to him, the annual wellness day has done a lot to promote employees’ well-being to improve productivity. “We strongly believe that a healthy body and a healthy mind play a major role in the individual’s daily performance. By encouraging our employees to take part in the wellness day, we drastically reduce absenteeism, sick leave and enhance the morale and stamina of the employees by educating them about health-related issues.”

Municipal employees take part during the wellness day at the Skoonplaas Stadium.

Juggling a professional cycling career with his studies, however, is something Kombo mentioned that he must adapt to. Apart from a busy race calendar this year, he will also have to study to keep up with his sport bursary at the Varsity College in Pietermaritzburg. He is currently enrolled to study events management in the first year and then BA Communications in the second year. “I’m extremely passionate about mountain biking and cycling. The opportunity to one day be able to organise races, such as the gruelling Absa Cape race, is one that I look forward too,” said Kombo. On the racing front, Kombo said that the team would be focused on national and provincial events to qualify for the African Continental Championships and the World MBT Championships in September to be held in Cains, Australia. “I believe this is certainly a step to great things that are yet to come, and with the support and encouragement I get from my friends and family back home, the 2020 Olympic Games will not only become a certainty but a personal career highlight,” said Kombo.

Mukumela is well aware of what the regional standard is all about and admits that it is a different ball game, compared to the provincials. “The competition is tighter and the standards are extremely high. There are scouts from the clubs there, which adds more pressure on our players.” Mr Tshilidzi Mbedzi, manager of Makuya Junior Aces, said the team had received tremendous support from the team officials and community. “Just getting to the regional finals has made a difference to the boys in terms of confidence and motivation,” he added.

Amazing victory for Joe Maweja By Frank Mavhungu After losing their previous home match against Polokwane United at the Tshifulanani Stadium two weeks ago, Joe Maweja rose to the occasion and beat Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) 1-0 in their ABC Motsepe League match at the same venue last Saturday. Although Maweja had only one regular player, Khongotela Mahlaule, in their starting line-up, they managed to match the home boys pound for pound from the onset to the end. As if they were going to bury Maweja alive, TTM approached the game aggressively with their strikers, Rendani

Dzivhani and Shandukani Mabirimisa, giving the defenders of Maweja no time to breathe. The keeper of Maweja, Eugene Mbedzi, was a marvel to watch. Mbedzi made his presence felt by saving several sure goals in the first half. He braved Rendani Dzivhani’s shot and palmed the ball away for a corner kick in the 24th minute. Although TTM were dictating terms, Maweja refused to die and managed to keep their opponents at bay until half time. Maweja effected a change to their original team when they introduced Khumbudzo Muvhango for Takalani Mashila five minutes into the last half. Muvhango formed a deadly combina-

tion with Thanzi Muruge and Talifhani Mphaphuli at the forefront. Victor Makhaukhau of TTM was warned for dangerous play in the 59th minute. He repeated the same offence ten minutes afterwards and he was given his marching orders. TTM made two replacements in the 74th minute. That did not stop Maweja from scoring a goal that earned them three vital points. Thanzi Muruge beat the offside trap and unleashed a ground cutter. The keeper of TTM, Nditsheni Sigaba, watched helplessly as the ball went beyond his reach. Muruge pulled off his T-shirt while celebrating his goal and he was cautioned with a card for that.

Victor Makhaukhau of TTM leaves the pitch after seeing red.
