Boere is tevrede Deur Andries van Zyl

‘n Mens kan met redelike veiligheid sê die droogte in die Soutpansberg-streek is gebreek. Dit is die mening van mnr. Fanie Havinga, voorsitter van die Soutpansberg Distrikslandbou-unie. “Ons het regtig baie goeie reën gekry, ver bo ons gemiddelde maandelikse reënval,” het Havinga Maandag gesê tydens ‘n telefoniese onderhoud, terwyl hy “in die middel van sy landery in die reën” gesit het. Hy, soos baie ander boere, is tevrede. “Soos die een oom eendag vir my gesê het, hy boer eerder in die modder as om in die stof te ry,” het Havinga skertsend opgemerk. Daar is heelwat areas in Limpopo wat in Januarie bo-gemiddelde reënval registreer het. Volgens die Suid-Afrikaanse Weerdiens was die “toppresteerders” die Roodewal Bosbouplantasie wat 363mm ontvang het (oftewel 239% van sy normale 152mm vir Januarie), Tom Burke met 211mm (269% van normale 78mm), Bela-Bela met 291mm (261% van normale 112mm) en Waterpoort met 96mm (140% van normale 69mm reën in Januarie). Ander dorpe en areas in die provinsie wat in Januarie lekker nat gereën het, was Alldays (121mm), Mara (120mm), Marken (131mm), Polokwane (59mm, slegs 71% van normale 83mm vir Januarie), Pontdrift (met 99% van normale Januarie reënval van 70mm), Soekmekaar (171mm), Thohoyandou (219mm), Tzaneen (282mm) en Venetia Myn (66 mm). Inwoners van Louis Trich-

ardt het tot 230mm vir Januarie gerapporteer. Hierdie wydverspreide goeie reën het veral die ondergrondse watertafels en riviere aangevul. “Die bietjies-bietjies reën wat kort-kort uitsak, help beslis. Ek kan dit sien aan droë fonteine wat na baie jare weer begin loop het,” het Havinga gesê. Met die riviere wat afkom, het ook die Albasinidam se vlak begin styg. Volgens die Departement van Waterwese het die dam se vlak in een week (vanaf 23 tot 30 Januarie) met 10% gestyg vanaf 63.3% tot 73.7%. Teen Maandag het die dam se vlak tot 75.5% gestyg. Met die Soutpansberg-streek wat soos baie ander dele van die land die afgelope twee jaar in die greep van ‘n ernstige droogte was, lyk oesvooruitsigte vir die eerste keer in ‘n lang tyd weer goed, al is dit vir die 2018 seisoen. “Alhoewel ons nou in ons neutseisoen ingaan, lyk oeste nie belowend nie. Die reën vir vanjaar se oes het net te laat gekom. Ons is egter baie optimisties vir volgende jaar se oes, danksy die goeie reën wat ons nou kry,” het Havinga gesê. Hy het bygevoeg dat hulle wel vanjaar ‘n goeie koejawel-oes verwag. “Veral koejawels lyk goed, omdat dit nou water nodig het om te swel,” het Havinga gesê. Volgens Havinga is die nat weer ideaal vir piesangs, maar hang die piesangoes nog in die weegskaal. Die rede hiervoor is onder andere dat die piesangs nie in November geblom het nie vanweë die hitte. Wat die avokado’s betref, het Havinga gesê, huil die boere bietjie. (Vervolg op p. 2)

CBD “race track” claims more victims 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, minibustaxi, 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 westto-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 minibustaxi 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.

For now, Makhado is safe from Eskom power cuts By Andries van Zyl

For now, residents of Makhado are safe from Eskom’s threats to completely cut off electricity supply to municipalities who fail to settle their electricity debt. “Residents need not fear as we are not owing Eskom anything,” was the response received from municipal spokesperson Mr Louis Bobodi on Tuesday. Earlier in January this year, Eskom threatened to cut the electricity supply completely to municipalities who are owing them billions of rands in outstanding debt. Their threat came after the High Court in Pretoria haad ruled that they could cut the electricity supply to defaulting municipalities while they tried to recover their debt. Among the culprits mentioned initially were municipalities in Mpumalanga, Northwest, Free State, Northern

Cape and Eastern Cape. Since then, many of these municipalities had to dig deep into their pockets to pay back the money owed, or to make payment arrangements with Eskom to avoid being cut off. “We can confirm that as of January 2017, we do not have any debt with them [Eskom],” said Bobodi when asked what the municipality’s outstanding account was with Eskom and if they were in arrears. Although Makhado’s Eskom account is up to date, it does not mean that the municipality does not struggle to recover outstanding monies from consumers. “Non-payment by customers and tampering of meters and reconnections are some of the challenges that we are facing,” said Bobodi. He added, however, that they are addressing the issue. “We must ensure strict credit control to force residents to pay on default accounts,” said Bobodi.

Eskom’s threat to cut the electricity supply to defaulting municipalities came amidst an ever increasing demand for electricity, especially regarding development. During an interview with Makhado mayor Shonisani Sinyosi in December, following her first 100 days in office, Sinyosi indicated that the biggest obstacle they faced regarding future growth and development in the municipal area was the shortage of available electricity. At present, the municipality’s main substation has a notified maximum demand (NMD) of 44 mega volt amp (MVA). To work out how much of this electricity is used, the highest 30-minute interval per month is measured. “The highest this year so far was 43,448MVA,” said Bobodi. With almost all available electricity allocated to the Makhado Municipality already being used

during peak times, the question now is how much more electricity is needed to ensure sustainable growth in the area. “Depending on the applications for development and the future load forecast, immediate additional needs are 7,830 MVA , an additional 15MVA one to three years from now and another 4,300MVA five to seven years from now – thus a total of plus minus 28MVA for the short to medium term. Long-term plans show at least a total NMD of 100MVA will be required for the Makhado main substation. This does not include the other intake points,” Bobodi said. Realizing the challenge, the Makhado Municipality has not sat idly. “The municipality’s administration has engaged with ESKOM and the Department of Energy for assistance in funding to make available an additional 22MVA at the main substation. If approved, this will push the NMD up to 66MVA,” said Bobodi. Bobodi added that further plans include completely removing the entire Levubu load from the Makhado main substation by creating a new substation at Elim. “If this can materialise, then another 10MVA can be deloaded from the main substation for further developments,” Bobodi said.

“Ek het reeds klagte vanaf Waterpoort ontvang. Die probleem is ons het nie regtig al gifstowwe om hulle te spuit nie. Ons gifstowwe kom ook nie maklik by hierdie nuwe spesie uit nie, want in die geval van mielies kruip hulle baie diep in die stronk in,” het Havinga gesê. Ten spyte van die kommandowurms en die reën wat vir sommige gewasse te laat gekom het om ‘n goeie 2017-seisoen te verseker, lyk dit of die goeie reën oor die streek nog vir ‘n rukkie gaan aanhou. Dit maak vooruitsigte vir ‘n goeie 2018 nog beter. Volgens die Suid-Afrikaanse Weerdiens se langtermyn voorspelling vir Februarie tot Junie 2017, dui plaaslike en internasionale voorspellingsisteme daarop dat Suid-Afrika se somerreënval gebied steeds ‘n nat tydperk kan verwag tot aan die einde van die seisoen. Daar is kanse van bogemiddelde reënval oor die grootste dele van die

land, maar met ‘n lae moontlikheid. Die Weerdiens het bygevoeg dat dit belangrik is om te onthou dat alhoewel natter toestande ook vir die herfs voorspel word, daar tradisioneel ‘n afname in reënval is oor die noord-oostelike dele van die land in herfs. Alhoewel goeie neerslae verligting gebring het ten opsigte van droogte toestande oor die oostelike en noordoostelike dele van die land die afgelope paar maande, heers daar steeds droogte toestande oor dele van sentraal en westelike Suid-Afrika weens ondergemiddelde reënval. “Die publiek word daaraan herinner dat, met die winter op die horison, grootskaalse waterverliese verwag kan word ten opsigte van ‘n afname in reënval en hoë vlakke van verdamping, veral oor die somerreënval streek,” het die Weerdiens gesê en aanbeveel dat waterbesparingsmaatreëls dwarsoor die land gehandhaaf word.

Vir een of ander rede is die avobome besig om hul onvolwasse vrugte af te gooi. Die vooruitsig vir wild- en veeboere lyk tans baie rooskleurig. “Die weiding het baie mooi herstel. Ek was self verlede week Alldays se kant toe. Die ouens se weiding lyk fantasties en ek dink ons sal die winter goed deurkom wat weiding betref. Mens moet onthou dat ons Maart en April ook reën kan kry,” het Havinga gesê. Ten spyte van die goeie weiding het Havinga egter sy kommer uitgespreek oor die voorkoms van kommandowurms in die streek wat veral teer op weigras. Alhoewel kommandowurms seisoenaal kan voorkom, blyk dit ‘n nuwe spesie uit Suid-Amerika te wees wat tans die streek teister.

ZOUTPANSBERGER, 10 FEBRUARIE 2017

Dave maak Namib-stap klaar Deur Isabel Venter

Twee maande, vier dae en 12 ure - dit is hoe lank dit gevat het vir Dave van Graan om sy epiese tog deur Namibië te voltooi. Hy het kort voor die einde van verlede jaar sy stapskoene aangetrek en sy geel Bart Mobile gepak om van suid na noord deur Namibië te stap, van Roshi Pinah tot by die Kunene-rivier. Sondag, 5 Februarie, kom daar ‘n boodskap van Dave: “Uiteindelik het ek aangekom by die Kunene-rivier.” By die boodskap is ‘n foto aangeheg van Dave met die droë watervalle van die rivier in die agtergrond. “Wat ‘n gevoel van vervulling was dit nie,” het Dave verder laat weet. Hy bieg dat hy wel soms daaraan

gedink het om op te gee, maar dat sy ou Recce vriend Koos hom geleer het dat opgee nie ‘n opsie is nie. “Ek het dié woorde ter harte geneem,” het Dave gesê. Dave se motivering was aanvanklik ‘n persoonlike uitdaging wat hy aan homself gestel het. Dave het vir jare aan ‘n baie pynlike siekte gely wat sy rug aangetas het. Dit was so erg dat hy baie sterk pynstillers moes drink om net deur die dag te kom. Hy het toe vir homself belowe dat as hy sou herstel, hy graag deur Suid-Afrika sou wou stap om ‘n pynvrye lewe te vier. Nou is die stap vir Dave beide ‘n persoonlike uitdaging en ook ‘n manier om geld in te samel vir iets baie na aan sy hart – die bewaring van die land se renosterbe­vol­king as deel van die Save the Rhino-projek.

Dave het Maandag begin terugdraai huis toe. As als goed afloop, behoort hy teen volgende week terug te wees in Louis Trichardt. Hy het almal bedank vir hulle volgehoue ondersteuning en aanmoedi­ ging langs die pad. In besonder het hy sy twee “slawedrywers”, Karen en Michael Kuhne, bedank wat met die voorbereidings gehelp het. Dit was egter sy familie se ondersteu­ ning wat vir Dave van onskatbare waarde was. “My vrou, Jacqui, was my rots en sonder haar sou ek dit nie gemaak het nie. En my 82-jarige ma wat altyd bekommerd was, soos enige moeder maar is, en elke voetval gevolg het deur middel van die satellietskakel. Baie dankie,” het Dave gesê. Met ‘n kenmer­kende cheers het hy vir eers weer gegroet.

Soutpansberg says sad farewell to great man In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that the Loots family have to announce the passing of Pieter Stephanus Loots on Sunday 5 February 2017 at the Little Company of Mary Hospital in Pretoria. At the time of his death, Piet (aged 62) was receiving treatment for leukaemia, after having been diagnosed in December 2016. One of seven sons, Piet was born and raised in Zimbabwe. He served with distinction in the Rhodesian Air Force before moving with his family to South Africa, where he worked for Atlas Aircraft Corp for eight years. He then signed on with the South African Air Force, which brought Piet to Louis Trichardt 25 years ago. He recently retired as a warrant officer from the SAAF in November 2014. Piet was a great lover of all forms The late Mr Piet Loots (62). Photo of sport. In his younger days, he was a sup­plied.

keen member of a basketball team and enjoyed a good round of golf. Recently, he was more of an armchair sportsman, being a faithful and ardent supporter of his favourite rugby team, the Blue Bulls. He will always be fondly remembered for his sharp wit and keen sense of humour. A funeral service will be held for Piet on Friday, 10 February, at the Emmanuel Church in Louis Trichardt at 11:00. He leaves behind his devoted wife of 40 years, Gwen (Bartie) Loots and children Lloyd Loots, Ashleigh (Loots) De Jager and her husband Marius De Jager, along with grandsons Ethan and Declan. He also leaves behind four brothers, their families and many close friends. The family expressed their sincere thanks and appreciation to the local community, their extended circle of friends and family for all their love, prayers and emotional support extended in their time of grief and sorrow.

“Uitendelik het ek aangekom by die Kunene-rivier.” Met dié foto het Dave van Graan uit Namibië laat weet dat hy sy staptog voltooi het.

Vriendelike Dana sterf in ongeluk Deur Isabel Venter

Altyd vriendelik en behulpsaam. Só sal al Dana van der Walt (53) se familie, vriende en kollegas hom onthou. Dana is verlede Donderdag (2de) op slag dood in ‘n motorongeluk. “Hy en ‘n kollega was saam op pad gewees om elektrisite-

itsmeters aan te sluit,” vertel ‘n jarelange vriend, mnr. Paul Otto. Die hartseer vir Dana se eggenote was nog te rou om self met die Zoutpansberger te gesels. Dit was maar net Dana se tweede dag by sy nuwe werk, Utility Management Services, nadat hy die pos aanvaar het op die eerste van die maand. “Hy

was opgewonde oor sy werk,” het Paul gesê. Sy skielike en ontydige dood het as groot skok gekom vir almal. Paul vertel dat Dana glo hard moes rem aanslaan net vóór die Hendrik Verwoed Tonnels op die N1-noord. Daar was ‘n ander voertuig voor Dana wat feitlik stilgestaan het. In die proses het Dana beheer verloor oor sy voertuig en met ‘n vragmotor gebots. Soos genoem is Dana op slag dood, maar wonderbaarlik was sy kollega ongedeerd. Dana het aanvanklik in 1982 as meterleser begin werk by die destydse Louis Trichardt Munisipaliteit, nadat hy die jaar tevore by Hoërskool Louis Trichardt gematrikuleer het. Hy was ‘n boorling van die Soutpansberg, met ouers oom Johan en tannie Bets wat woonagtig was in die dorp en beide goed bekend was aan inwoners. Dana het later jare by die stadsraad gekwalifiseer as elek­ trisiën en het selfs op ‘n tyd waargeneem as bestuurder in die elektrisiteitsafdeling. Hy het in 1996 by die munisipali­ teit bedank en verhuis Levubu toe, waar hy met groente begin boer het. Wyle Dana word oorleef deur eggenote Kriek, hul drie-jaaroue seuntjie Johan, sy ma tannie Bets, broer André en susters Riana en Louise. ‘n Roudiens word op Donderdag, 9 Februarie, om 11:00 vanuit die NG Kerk Louis Trichardt-gemeente vir Dana gehou.

College defends 100% pass rate statement By Andries van Zyl

Mr Bruce Wells, executive head of Ridgeway College in Louis Trichardt, strongly reacted to allegations that the college did not obtain a 100% pass rate during the 2016 final exam as reported in the media. Since the article appeared in the Zoutpansberger of 20 January, several people questioned the accuracy of the article. Some claimed that the college did not achieve a 100% pass rate, as not all the students had passed. This not only brought into question the integrity of the newspaper, but also that of the college, and Wells was asked to react. In reaction he said: “Firstly, let me express my disappointment at this allegation and the undermining of my integrity as head of the school, the school board as well as our trustees alike.” Wells stated that the information contained in the media report had been recorded accurately and explained that a 100% matric pass means that all the Ridgeway students who sat for their matric examinations in 2016 had fulfilled the minimum requirements to enter a tertiary institution of their choice, based on the strength of their results. “If you have not obtained a bachelor pass, it does not mean you have failed the matric examination, it simply means you cannot pursue degree studies because you did not fulfil the minimum requirement to study for a bachelor’s degree,” Wells said. Wells gave a breakdown of their bachelor passes for the Independent Examination Board and Cambridge exam. He said that the combined bachelor passes between the IEB and Cambridge was 87%, which translates into 13% of their students having received what is called diploma passes and higher certificate passes that would allow them to further their education post-matric at a technical college or college of their choice. “Naturally amongst that 13%, some students would not have met the minimum requirements in a subject or two for university studies. However, it

does not mean they have failed matric according to the requirements for a matric pass,” said Wells. He added that some of these students, if they wished, could take rewrites to improve the quality of their pass to gain access into a bachelor programme, for example. In 2015, the college’s matric pass rate was 98% where one of their students failed, meaning he/ she did not qualify for any of the above-mentioned categories. In conclusion, Wells again expressed his dismay with the rumours. “This is such a libellous claim which is potentially so damaging to the reputation of the school,” said Wells.

Wees maar bietjie geduldig dié aand Dit is weer tyd vir Louis Trichardt se eie Kansa Relay for Life. Vanjaar vind die Relay plaas vanaf 18:00 op 10 Maart tot 06:00 op 11 Maart, weereens op Hoërskool Louis Trichardt se sportterrein. “Daar sal heelnag musiek en afkondigings wees. Ons wil hiermee graag die publiek versoek om geduldig te wees met die musiek. Ons sal probeer om die musiek nie so hard te speel nie en daar is ook skrywes aan die munisipaliteit en die SAPD gestuur vir die aanbied van die Relay,” sê mnr. Dirk Meissenheimer, Relay voorsitter. Meissenheimer sê dit is belangrik vir mense om te onthou waaroor die Relay gaan. “Dit gaan oor mense (survivors) wat kanker oorwin het of wat steeds kanker het en dat ons ‘n nag saam met hulle wil deurbring om simpatie met hulle te betoon.” sê Meissenheimer. Let daarop dat geen drank, dwelms of rook op die baan toegelaat sal word nie. “Kom ons respekteer mekaar ten minste vir een aand in ‘n jaar,” sê Meissenheimer. Hy kan geskakel word by tel. 082 789 3927 vir meer inligting.

The fall armyworm was positively identified from samples collected in Limpopo. These samples were jointly collected by scientists from ARC Grain Institute and the Northwest University. The DAFF warned that the worm poses a great danger to the livelihood of the growth and development of crops and other plantations. Armyworms primarily feed on grass, forage grasses, oats, wheat and corn. These pests attack vegetables such as beans, cabbages, onions, peas, peppers and sweet potatoes. “As the fall armyworm is a new pest to South Africa, no pesticide was previously registered to be used against it.

News that yet another financial advisor must appear in court to explain what had happened to hundreds of thousands of rands in investment money has left investors wanting to know what more they can do to protect themselves and their money. Last week’s front-page article about former Sanlam financial advisor Francois Labuschagne (49) of Louis Trichardt who has to explain exactly that, not only left investors but also other local financial planners and brokers fuming. They argue that incidents like these, similar to the Chris Tissink investment scandal in 2009, cause the industry irreparable harm, placing a serious question mark over the trustworthiness of all financial advisors and brokers. “I get extremely upset over stories like these. It also seriously jeopardizes the relationship of trust between the company that person worked for and it clients,” said Mr Lourens Greyling, a financial adviser for Sanlam in Louis Trichardt. Apart from the similarity in the timeframe during which money disappeared in both the Labuschagne and Tissink case (about 2005 to 2010), there are also other similarities. In both cases, investors were convinced by the financial planner or broker to re-invest money with them. In Labuschange’s case, he had apparently convinced investors that their current investments were underperforming and that they needed to move their money to another investment that promised higher returns. In Tissink’s case, the drawcard used to lure investors was the promise of ridiculously high monthly returns on investments. Another similarity in both cases was the apparently deliberate attempt by the financial planner or broker to avoid contact with clients. In Tissink’s case, it later transpired that statements issued by him to clients had been falsified. “I always tell my clients that if a deal sounds too good to be true, then it probably is,” said Greyling regarding the above. In the wake of the Labuschagne case, Sanlam issued a press release last week with tips the public can follow to avoid being scammed out of their hard-earned money. “Every year, many South Africans, in particular retirees who are struggling to make ends meet, fall prey to scamsters and schemes that promise a return far superior to that of the financial market, at a very low risk. There’s no investment that can promise 15% or 30% returns without risk. There is always a risk-return tradeoff when you invest, especially in assets that can potentially have a higher return,” warned Sanlam. But what should the public do to try and minimize or avoid the risk of being scammed by a financial planner or broker? “Find out if they’re registered with the Financial Services Board (FSB). Also, find out if the investment offered is regulated by the FSB and whether they can show proof of this?” said Sanlam. Other important questions that needs to be answered by financial planners or brokers are: what exactly is being promised; what returns will investors receive; how will the money be invested and where; how will the individual be remunerated; and whether an investor can withdraw their investment later and how? In Labuschagne’s case, however, he was in the employ of Sanlam as a financial advisor and reg-

istered at the FSB when investors’ money is said to have disappeared. Readers may ask themselves how following the guidelines above could have protected investors? In this regard, Greyling added that investors needed to make sure whom they were dealing with. “Make sure where your money is invested and arrange with that company to have statements emailed to you directly, not through your financial planner or broker only. Communication is key and make sure you see your financial planner or broker frequently,” said Greyling. The public should take note that there is a difference between a financial planner and a broker. Deciding whom to choose is critical when deciding to invest. “A financial adviser can offer advice and access to financial products from a range of insurers and investment companies, but is an employee or contracted to a particular company and, therefore, the company will stand in for the advice offered by an adviser. Financial advisers will focus on the products associated with the company that employs them or to which they are contracted,” said Sanlam. In Labuschagne’s case, Sanlam repaid all the investors the money they had lost because Labuschagne was in their employment when the money went missing. As for a broker, Sanlam explained that a broker is an independent person who advises and offers products from a wide range of insurers and other companies, but has no employment ties or other links with companies. “A broker therefore has a licence to sell a far wider range of products, although his clients don’t enjoy the same protection as a financial adviser with an employment link to a particular company,” said Sanlam.

In Louis Trichardt word huis­ houdelike watersuiweringstoestelle al hoe meer gebruik en met goeie rede. In die rare gevalle waar daar wel water in die krane is, is dit telkens vieslik vuil. Tydens die mees onlangse watertekorte in en om Louis Trichardt het dit aan die lig gekom dat die drinkwater glad nie drinkbaar is nie. Die lang en die kort van dié storie was dat die watersuiwe­ ringsaanleg by die Albasinidam nie die aanvraag na water kan hanteer wanneer die watertoe­ voer weer herstel word na ‘n lang onderbreking nie. Dit veroorsaak

dat vuil water in die stelsel beland. Verlede week kon die Zoutpansberger bevestig dat water wel deur ‘n filtreerstelsel gestuur word, maar dat dit weinig doen om die water drinkbaar te maak. ‘n Bydraende faktor, het tegnici by die Vhembe Distriksmunisipaliteit (VDM) verduidelik, is die swaar reën wat die streek onlangs ontvang het. Buiten vir modder wat nie kans kry om te sak in die Albasinidam nie, is dit ook moeilik om die watersuiweringsaanleg skoon te hou terwyl dit reën. Hoe dan gemaak om jou water, hetsy dit dan nou vanaf die munisipaliteit of uit jou boorgat kom, weer drinkbaar te kry? Waarskynlik die maklikste

en mees koste-effektiewe wyse om kwaliteit drinkwater te verkry, is die tru-osmose sisteem. ‘n Ses-fase tru-osmose stelsel sal van alle onsuiwerhede en chemikalieë in die water ontslae raak, en gedurende die sesde fase slegs die minerale terugplaas in die water wat ons liggame nodig het elke dag. Maar hoe gemaak as só ‘n stelsel nie bekostig kan word nie? Oasis Water, ‘n plaaslike besigheid, het ‘n ses-stap proses waarvan hulle gebruik maak om water te suiwer. (Sien hiernaas). Hulle suiwer water totdat dit 100% skoon is en verkoop dit in gerieflike, hervulbare houers, wat inwoners nie ‘n arm en been sal kos nie.

Johannes 4:14. “Wie egter van die water drink wat Ek hom gee, sal nimmer as te nooit weer dors word nie. Die water wat Ek vir hom sal gee, sal ’n fontein in hom word waarvan die water vir altyd sal bly opborrel.” eur hierdie woorde van die Here Jesus verkeerd te verstaan kan ‘n mens maklik tot die gevolgtrekking kom dat wanneer jy na Jesus kom aan al jou verwagtinge voldoen sal word. Geen meer teleurstellings nie. Die volgende verse wys egter duidelik dat ontevredenheid en teleurstellings altyd deel van ‘n gelowige se lewe sal wees, en behoort te wees, nl. Kol. 3:12; Rom. 12:15; Luk. 18:7; Rom. 7:24; Rom. 8:23. Wanneer iemand na Christus kom om Hom aan te neem as sy Verlosser en Saligmaker, kom hy na die fontein van lewende water, waar daar oorvloed is. Kinders van God word aangemoedig om te bid dat ons verhouding met God oorvloedig sal wees (Ps. 90:14). Maar die volheid daarvan word nie dadelik ervaar nie. Byvoorbeeld, in hierdie lewe verouder ons liggame, ons ervaar pyn en uiteindelik sterf ons (2 Kor. 4:16). ‘n Ander voorbeeld is die oorblywende sonde in ons harte. Ons sondig nog en het vergifnis nodig (1 Joh. 1:8). Ons moet nog daagliks bid soos Christus ons geleer het: “Gee ons vandag ons daaglikse brood”, en op dieselfde manier, “vergewe ons ons sonde” (Matt. 6:12). Nog ‘n voorbeeld is die swakheid van die vlees. Jesus het aan die slapende dissipels gesê: “Die gees is gewillig, maar die vlees is swak” (Matt. 26:42). Ons wil aanbid en dien en bid, maar ons ervaar hierdie swakheid maak ons traag. Die Skrif moedig ons aan om uit hierdie traagheid te kom (Heb. 6:12; 12:12). Hierdie traagheid van die vlees word ook deur ons Here Jesus verander want Hy is bereid om elke offer te aanvaar wat uit ‘n hart vol geloof, nederigheid en berou aan Hom gebring word (Ps. 51:19). Christus bied volkome oorvloed, sommige nou reeds in hoop en vergifnis en krag om te groei in liefde, maar die volheid daarvan eendag in die hemel wanneer ons volmaak voor Hom sal staan. Wees altyd nederig, vreugdevol en berouvol en vol verwagting oor die beloftes en genade van God. - 079 516 8303

(Contd from P14) During 2016, Kombo represented Zimbabwe in the World MTB Championships as part of their mountain biking team in Nove Mestro na Morave in the Czech Republic. Participation in this event was no easy feat as cyclists could participate by invitation only as a result of their accumulated UCI (world ranking) points. Apart from local accolades, Kombo also boasts other victories, such as being second overall during the Three Towers Stage Race in 2014, Limpopo U/18 mountain and road-bike champion (in the same year) and the 2015 U/18 Limpopo champion for XCO mountain-bike and half-marathon racing. Last year Kombo also cycled in the annual Kremetart road cycling race as part of the Limpopo Tac-Pulse Team, the first ever

local professional cycling team. The decision to relocate to Pietermaritzburg, explained Kombo, he only made after considering all his options. “With several approaches from many local bike companies and brands, the African mountain bike team’s offer stood out, not only in a financial way, but also in the long run,” said Kombo. The team is sponsored by Team Pyga, a proudly South African mountain bike manufacturing company, and EuroSteel. 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

The 19th hole Fixtures/Bepalings Opkomende Kompetisie

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.

Triegie-atlete trap pad na podium plat by Potties Skolesport

Te oordeel aan die medaljes wat Hoërskool Louis Trichardt se atlete teruggebring het die afgelope naweek, was die kompetisie nie te straf gewees op Mokopane nie. Triegie-atlete het Saterdag deelgeneem aan ‘n interskole atletiekbyeenkoms wat by Hoërskool Potgietersrus aangebied is. Soos gewoonlik het die Triegies die pad na die rostrum platgetrap. Richard Lambert het besonders goed presteer met vier eerste plekke wat by behaal het in spiesgooi, driesprong, hoogspring en verspring SO/19.

Kombo is going pro By Isabel Venter

The Soutpansberg’s very own Kombo Bere has moved to Pietermaritzburg to make a name for himself in the world of professional cycling. Kombo recently joined the African mountain bike team, Team EuroSteel Pyga, and by doing so joined the ranks of his personal heroes Philip Buys (2012 Olympic mountain biker) and Matthys Beukes. The team participated in their first race

of the season, the Drak Descent Mountain Bike Challenge, on 21 and 22 January in KwaZulu Natal in the beautiful town of Underberg. This two-stage race was a muddy challenge on the Sani Spoors trails. The race started towards the Gooderson Drak Gardens hotel and finished on the river near the Colford nature reserve. Philip and Matthys competed in the team event, while Kombo raced in the solo category. On day one, Kombo started off in group D, five minutes behind his team

mates. He managed to finish 13th overall and 7th in the solo category, earning him a place in the lead bunch on day two. Setting out with his team mates, Kombo finished 5th overall and 2nd in the solo category. “It was amazing because, for the first part of the second day, I got to race up front with both these two incredibly awesome athletes,” said Kombo. Not that this race was Kombo’s first brush with professional cyclists. (Contd on P13)
