Xenophobia again? By Elmon Tshikhudo The ugly scars of xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals, which took a number of lives and left many injured and displaced, are still fresh in the minds of South Africans and the foreign nationals themselves. With the month of May being recognised nationally as Africa month, several Zimbabwean citizens in Vhembe are appealing for help as an alleged new war is being waged against them by locals. Since the beginning of March, Zimbabwean citizens in villages around Vhembe have been asking themselves what they have done wrong as they are randomly attacked and told to vacate villages, even though they have valid papers allowing them to be in the country legally. A gang of ruthless youths at Dididi village are waging a war of terror on residents, more specifically Zimbabweans and locals who have ties with foreign nationals. These youths reportedly launch their operations at night and mostly under the influence of liquor and have become a menace in the community, claiming to have the support of the local civic and traditional leader. Since their campaign started in early March this year, families have been misplaced while properties have also been destroyed. Some members of the

community were left with scars that will take time to heal. One of the first casualties was the Nematatani family. The family of seven has gone through trauma since the head of the family, Mr Admire Ncube, a Zionist bishop who is in the country legally, was expelled from the village, allegedly because he is a Zimbabwean. Ncube was expelled because he was allegedly behind the spate of crimes committed in the village. He is the sole breadwinner of the family and had to leave his family to fend for themselves. His eldest daughter, Ms Emulani Nematatani (22), was a student at Vhembe TVET College and had to abandon her studies because there is no one to support her. As if that were not enough, the youths allegedly went on the rampage last Sunday evening, attacking Zimbabweans and families who have ties with them. - Continues on page 2

Bandelierkop gets own police station

Writers discuss importance of story-telling

By Isabel Venter The Bandelierkop SAPS branch has once again become a fully functional police station. From 1 May, the charge office at Bandelierkop has officially become a standalone police station, which means it will no longer be operated as a satellite police station for the Makhado SAPS. For the past eight years, the station was incorporated under the control and management of the local station. A dedicated policeman from the Makhado SAPS, Capt Silima Matodzi (066 4800 407), has been appointed as the new station commander for the station at Bandelierkop. He will be assisted in his crime-fighting duties by the Vispol Commander, W/O Josias Tsumbedzo Ramusilei (066 4800 419) and the detective branch commander, W/O Abednigo Mailula Matome (066 4800 414). Capt Matodzi appealed to members of the Bandelierkop community to continue to work closely with the police in the fight against crime. The station can be contacted at Tel 015 519 9600/9601.

She encouraged readers to read more books and writers to continue writing. This year’s World Book Day theme was “Reading Empowers”. In Louis Trichardt, the event was hosted by Guyo Book Service, in partnership with the Makhado Public Library. Guyo Book Service’s managing director, Maano Tuwani, urged people to read more books to get more knowledge and for entertainment and enjoyment.

(From page 1) The Nematatani family was targeted again when a group known to the family came looking for Ncube. “We were asleep at around midnight when we heard the sound of a car passing. A short while later, the car came back and stopped right at our gate. I could hear voices outside and then some knocking at the door. I opened the door and people who are known to us said they wanted to come inside the house as they were looking for a Zimbabwean, referring to my father.” She said that she did not allow them in and told them they should first produce a search warrant to enter the house, which they did not have. “They told me they had been sent by the local chief and that he was in the bakkie,” said Emulani. She further indicated that, upon seeing that she was not going to give in, some threw stones at the house and hit her brother. They also allegedly broke and stole some poles that were meant for roofing. “We do not even know what wrong we have done to these people. They expelled my father; now they still torment us as if we owe them something. We are treated like foreigners in our country - all because our father is Zimbabwean.” She emphasised that life was miserable for them and was becoming worse, “because people we know are doing this.” The mother of the family, Ms Rudzani Nematatani (44), said their family was displaced because of petty village politics. “We thought we would have peace after they had expelled my husband, but they are still after us. I was born and bred here, and I do not know of any other home. I do not know where to go right now. We need help from this hell,” she said. Another unlucky Zimbabwean is Mr Edmore Gumbo Baketi (26). He was attacked while visiting a family in the village. “I was in one of the houses in the village when a mob arrived and started attacking me. They hit me with an assortment of weapons before abducting me and dumping me at the side of the road, thinking that I was dead.” Baketi further indicated that he is a peace-loving person who makes an honest living through piece jobs. “I wonder why they did this to me. If I

had done something wrong, they were supposed to have taken me to the chief or get me arrested. Just because I am a Zimbabwean they treat me in the most inhumane way.” The local civic leader, Mr Morris Mathoma, said he had heard about the incidents and had visited one of the families to get first-hand information. “We are very worried about the latest developments in the village, and we are going to sit down during the week and chart the way forward. We have identified those involved and we are going to summon them.” He added that they would like to see the problem solved once and for all. Limpopo police spokesperson Lt-Col Moatshe Ngoepe said they should report the cases and if they had no success at the local police station, they could also report to the cluster commander and even the police commissioner. The question that many are asking is whether the attacks are xenophobic or just another form of hooliganism in the village.

An injured mouth is still troubling Mr Edmore Gumbo Baketi.

Poet’s dream becomes a reality By Elmon Tshikhudo

talk was casual and they spoke about different topics, such as his poetry and other issues. He further indicated that the president was a very humble person who had also thanked and encouraged him to continue with his poetry. “When I indicated my wish to be his praise singer, he told me that I should leave my details with his spokesperson, as he was the one who dealt with such matters. I am very excited as, last year in May, I had a vision of reciting about and praising him. That was before he

became the president of the ANC and the country. It is now like my vision is bearing fruit and my dream will become a reality,” said Vendaboy. He further thanked British Airways and Limpopo Mirror for making his dream a reality. “Had it not been for this newspaper that published my wish, British Airways would not have known about me. You built me and now that I am invited to perform at big functions, many are finally taking me very seriously.”

Early last month this paper carried a story of a young poet whose wish was to meet South Africa’s first citizen, Pres Cyril Ramaphosa, and to recite a poem he had penned in honour of the politician. The other wish of well-known local poet Lutendo Mugagadeli (28), better known as Vendaboy Poet, is to be the president’s praise singer. The story reached a well-known airline, British Airways, who decided to give the president a surprise and make the poet’s dream a reality. British Airways then arranged for the poet to meet the president. Vendaboy boarded a flight from Durban to Johannesburg, seated next to and talking with the president. Vendaboy said he could not believe his ears when a message came through that he was to meet his idol. “Firstly, it was my first time to board a plane and the first time to sit next to the president, chatting to him all the way from Durban to Johannesburg. This will always be the best day of my life and a highlight in my career as a poet. Just imagine being seated next to the president of the country, touching on different topics. I still can’t believe it happened to me and this day will remain in my mind for the rest of my life,” he said.

Beautiful ladies from Vhembe District who have a fuller figure are invited to take part in this year’s Miss Venda Plus-Size pageant. The Miss Venda Plus Size pageant was first presented by Mudifho Empire Entertainment last year. Nadney Mulaudzi, one of the organisers, said that the purpose of the competition was to cater for plus-size ladies. “We have noticed that society, fashion events, beauty pageants and any event that defines beauty discriminate against the plus-size ladies. Our main aim is to give them a platform to shine and accept their bodies,” Mulaudzi added. Mulaudzi said the pageant was open to all ladies aged between 16 and 30 and of size +36. “They must be located in Venda.

“Pupils and educators must work together” By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho

Pupils from secondary schools in the Sinthumule and Kutama areas were motivated and encouraged to focus on their studies and work harder. This happened during the sixth annual Sintamassip Community Development excellence awards and motivational ceremony that was held at the Assemblies of God Church at Madombidzha village. “We are calling upon pupils to pull up their socks and work even harder, so that they may have something to touch at the end of the year,” said Sintamassip Community Development’s chairperson, Mr Tshiila Ravhuhali. “You’ve got to first sweat to get some good things in life. No achievement comes on a silver platter.” Other speakers and experts in various career fields provided career guidance to the pupils. The guest artist, Lufuno Dagada, mesmerised people with his award-winning music. During the event, life-time achievement awards were handed to two former principals, Mr Piet Marageni and Mr George Mathivha, for the good and positive leadership during the years when they were educators and principals. “They contributed towards the upliftment of education in our area in amazing ways,” he said. The Soutpansberg East Circuit’s manager, Mr Falaza Baloyi, acknowledged the good work of the educators and pupils and wished them all the best of luck in the 2018 academic year. “Work in peace and cooperation with your principals,” he said. Three pupils, Musiwalo Kutama, Tsumbedzo Tshivhenga and Tshinanga Rantete, who all excelled in the 2017 academic year, were acknowledged during the event. A R2 000 cash prize and a trophy was awarded to Musiwalo for being a top pupil in science, while Tsumbedzo and Tshinanga were also awarded certificates and trophies. “We want the current Grade 11 and 12 pupils to feel encouraged to work harder and score excellent marks,” Ravhuhali concluded. “We would like to thank all our sponsors and partners who,

The provincial treasurer of Sanco, Vhamusanda Progress Kutama, said that the Sinthumule-Kutama residents have lost hope and trust in the Makhado Municipality regarding service delivery. In a press statement delivered to Limpopo Mirror this week, Kutama said that when the tarred road from Madabani to Tshikwarani was built, it was a relief to the residents to move in safety to the different places along the road. “Now the road has turned to be a slaughter house and a thorn in the flesh of the community. If one want to see the mother of potholes, you must come and look at this road,” he said. According to Kutama, the municipality “is always speaking in double tongues and empty promises are the order of the day.” He also invited the municipal officials to a meeting to discuss the issue. According to him, Sanco knows the government seems to understand better when the masses protest in the streets, but that it will be a better option to discuss the issue in a calm and polite way around a table.

“No calamity occurs on earth nor in yourselves, but it is inscribed in the book of decree before We bring it into existence. Verily that is easy for God. Inorder that you may not grieve at the things over that you fail to get or rejoice over that which has been given to you.And God likes not prideful boasters.” Quraan : surah Hadid, verse 22 - 23

In contrast to the man of the world whatever the man of God does, he does it to please Him (God) and trusts in Him and not in his own powers nor in material resources. Therefore he is neither exultant over his success in the cause of God nor loses heart by failures, for he believes that it is the will of God that is working in both cases. One should neither be disheartened by disasters nor be filled with conceit by successes. You should only worry to do your best to come out successful in this life which is a test of God Thus if you ask, ask God, and if you seek help, seek help from God. “ God alone is sufficient for us and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us). “ Quraan : Ale- Imraan, verse 173 Free Copy of the Translation of Quran available on request.

Police looking for mother after Fed-up Block L residents want to break ties with Thulamela Muni newborn baby is dumped By Silas Nduvheni

they cannot have their own. Khosi Ravhura said he did not know whether the shebeens and lodges that had popped up in the area should be blamed for such conduct. “I would be pleased if the mother of the child could be found and be arrested by the police,” he said.

The police in the Thohoyandou Cluster are appealing to the communities in the Makonde and Matangari villages to help them trace a woman who gave birth and dumped her new baby. The baby’s body was found wrapped in the veld near Makonde-Tshithuthuni last Wednesday (2 May). The child was discovered by some community members who informed the police. The baby’s body was already in a decomposed state at that stage. Police spokesperson Colonel Mashudu Malelo confirmed the incident and said that they had opened a case of concealment of birth. “We have not yet arrested anyone, but we urge women who have domestic problems to rather consult the social workers and various local pastors to get help,” said Colonel Malelo. The local traditional leader of Makonde, Khosi Tshilidzi Ravhura, said he was upset about the incident that had happened in his village and had negatively affected his village’s image. According to Ravhura, the action of giving birth and dumping the baby is strongly opposed by women in his village, because many Some of the villagers look at the badly decomposed body women long for children, and some of the newborn baby that was dumped in the veld near eventually adopt children because the Makonde-Tshithuthuni village.

Who knows whereabouts of Mudau? Missing Man The Mudau family from Tshiombo village outside Mutale are still searching for a member, Mr Elvis Ntuwiseni Mudau (46), who went missing on 15 April this year. According to one of the family members, Ms Selinah Tshikotshi, they have enquired with friends, nearby communities and even searched in the mountains, but without success. She said that Elvis had left his home village of Tshiombo to go to church on the Sunday. “We have also reported the matter to the Mutale police station and his poster was placed everywhere in Mutale, so that anybody who saw him must report it to the police or inform the family. He was wearing a brown jacket and yellow trousers at the time,” said Tshikotshi.

of the county, for a speedy solution to their problem. He added that if they found no solution to their problems, they would be left with no option but to look for other options in ensuring that services came to their area. Among the proposals by the community during the meeting was completely breaking ties with Thulamela Municipality and opening a community trust account where residents would deposit all their monies to use in developing their area. This would effectively mean that they stop paying for municipal services completely. “We are not fighting anybody, and we work with

the local councillor, but very soon we will be on our own. We have waited too long, but nothing is happening. We are a peaceful community and we will not damage the few resources we have in protesting against non-delivery of services.” Mr Nndwamato Tshiila, the spokesperson for the Thulamela Municipality, said the community should not panic and that it was not true that they had been removed from the IDP. “Their road has already been designed, but it will not be implemented this year. They are not the only ones, and they should just be patient as they will get their road,” he said.

Residents of Maniini Block L outside Thohoyandou are up in arms against the local Thulamela Municipality, which they say is not keeping promises they make to residents. The stand-off between the municipality and residents emanates from recent revelations that that things promised to residents in the IDP will not bear fruit this year. Residents who are fedup with the municipality’s “empty promises” say the area in which they are staying has been proclaimed and they have been paying for services they do not get. The last straw was recently during an IDP meeting held in Thohoyandou when residents realised that the road that they had been promised that used to be in the municipality’s IDP was no longer featured there. The community held a report-back meeting on Sunday at the local church, where they were briefed about the latest developments. Local civic leader Mr Lufuno Pedron Ramagoma said the municipality has taken them for a ride and that they have been patient for a long time. “We have been paying for services here with the hope that the municipality would develop our area in return, but this is not happening. We featured in the municipality’s IDP, but we were shocked to find recently that we will not be getting any development from the municipality this financial year.” He added that the municipality had not been faithful and further indicated that, in view of the latest developments, they were going to engage all the relevant stakeholders, including the Civic leader Mr Lufuno Pedron Ramagoma adresses the province and the president meeting at Maniini on Sunday.

Khakhathi slams ANC’s expropriation “Alcohol is killing people” - Granny without compensation as opportunistic By Elmon Tshikhudo

At her ripe old age of 109, Gogo Matamela Murenzheni of Tshisahulu Riverside is still very active and full of energy. She dedicated her entire life serving her community by using her indigenous knowledge to help the barren have children and weak men regain their bedroom strength. When she celebrated her birthday at the weekend, her last surviving daughter, also a pensioner, her grandchildren and the community came together to celebrate her life. During an event held at her home at Tshisahulu, she was

had no problems with other lifestyle diseases. Asked to share the secret of her long life, Murenzheni said many young people were dying unnecessarily because they no longer respected their parents and elders. She further said some of the food that people were eating was harmful and reduced the lifespan of young people. "I have no specific diet, but I have a limit of what I eat. One thing that is killing people is alcohol. I have never tasted it in my life and my advice to young people is that they should not imbibe alcohol if they want to live longer," she said.

Still going strong. Granny Matamela Mirenzheni leads guests to a tent during the celebrations.

Mall supports drop-in-centre By Elmon Tshikhudo When senior traditional leader Jeffrey Ramovha and his partners built the Thavhani Mall, one of their aims was to empower local communities. The mall, which opened its doors last year, is living up to that and local communities are benefiting in terms of employment opportunities. Even non-profit organizations have become beneficiaries of the mall. One such organization is the Tsia Mutsha Drop-in Centre at Tsianda. The organization that looks after 60 vulnerable and orphaned children from the two villages

received a consignment of groceries on Friday that will last the children for a while. The groceries included mealie meal, cooking oil and tinned cans. Handing over the groceries, Thavhani Mall’s marketing manager, Ms Tiny Ramukanda Manwadu, said it was the mall’s wish to assist wherever possible in communities around the Vhembe district where they operated. “We heard about the plight of the children and that sometimes their supplies could not cover them for a long time. We felt we should lend a helping hand and we felt the groceries

would make a difference and brighten the children's lives.” The leader of the centre, Ms Audrey Kgole, said they received some form of assistance from social development, but that it was not sufficient to cover them for a long period. “We have children from very poor backgrounds, with some going to bed on empty stomachs if we do not cater for them here.” She said that they went to the centre on weekdays and they assisted them with their homework, taught them life skills and fed them. “We are very excited to be associated with Thavhani Mall and the help they have given us.”

Female colleagues dressed in traditional attire ushered Mr Lufuno Dzebu (60) to his retirement farewell function at the Thohoyandou Arts Centre last week.

The senior manager of community services in the Thulamela Municipality, Mr Shumani Razwiedani, compared Mr Ratshilumela Lufuno Dzebu to a fountain of knowledge whose service-delivery water was shared tirelessly with the thirsty Thulamela communities. Razwiedani was addressing staff and guests who attended Dzebu’s retirement farewell function held at the Thohoyandou Arts Centre last week. At the time of his retirement, Dzebu held the position of foreman in the refuse-removal section of the Thulamela Municipality’s community services department. He worked for 21 years and retired at the age of 60. To confirm that Dzebu had strived for the cleanliness of the municipality throughout his working life, his green retirement cake was a replica of a refuse-removal truck, shrubs and trees.Razwiedani said Dzebu’s name would go

down the history as one of the people who had played a meaningful role in the development of the municipality. “He can be described as a good shepherd and loyalist, who always raised the flag of the municipality by making sure that all our areas were clean. Although he held a leadership position, he can easily be likened to a soccer player who performed very well in every position in which he was fielded. We can all agree that he loved his work and went the extra mile to fulfil his obligations. Through his dedication, he inspired young employees to love their work. We will miss him dearly, but we wish him a happy retirement to start a new life at home,” said Razwiedani.Dzebu thanked the municipality for giving him the opportunity to realize his potential. “It was not easy when we started here more than 21 years ago. Refuse removal equipment was very limited then. We used to shovel refuse physically into the municipal bakkies all

day long and never complained. We worked hard until today when there are new and convenient ways of dealing with waste. Work is not about money, it is about putting a smile on the face of the person you are assisting. Throughout my 21 years’ service, I have never been warned, charged or brought before a disciplinary committee. If you want to enjoy your work, love what you do and do everything on time. Although I am going on retirement, I will always be available for advice whenever I’m needed.” Asked what he would do next after retirement, Dzebu gladly said: “I will now have enough time to work on my farm at Khubvi village in order to supply you with fresh fruit and vegetables.” Dzebu started working at Thulamela Municipality as general worker in 1997. He was promoted to driver two years later. Through hard work and dedication, he climbed the career ladder to become a foreman, until he retired last week.

motivate other women and to bring about sustainable change in the country.” “I am a suitable candidate for the Mrs Commonwealth SA pageant in that I am very passionate about working with different people,” she said. “In 2016 and 2017, I was one of the adjudicators for the Miss Makhado and Miss Madombidzha Arsenal FC beauty pageants, where I was doing it for the love of my community.” She stated that although she was aiming for the coveted crown, for her it was about touching the lives of people. “I want to bring sustainable change in my community. I want to empower and inspire other women. I am a woman who is ready for any challenge. I dream big, I don’t have a small goal. I tell myself that success without hard work is a myth.” Livhuwani is a wife and a mother of two sons and a daughter. She matriculated from Sinthumule Secondary School in 2000 and obtained a bachelor's degree in public administration from the University of Venda. The grand finale will be taking place at the spectacular LYRIC Theatre at Gold Reef City on 12 October.

Maluleke releases highly anticipated album

Jenifer “Lady J” Mushathoni

By Mbulaheni Ridovhona A local gospel artist, Tiyani Lens Maluleke, recently released his highly anticipated album, Intimate Worship. He said the album was all about taking people back to the purpose of creation, which is worship, and encouraging those who lost hope that Jesus is the one who can restore lost hope. The 26-year-old, who hails from Ha-Masia Vhangani, said the album comprised 21 songs. Other artists who can also be heard on the album are Dereal Palesa, Voice Tsila Tsila, T Soko, Masana and Phathu, Perfect Trio and Muano Trend Setter Musetha. “The songs speak about God’s promises, which are continual. It encourages us to remember that no matter what we go through, we should never forget what He promised us in his Word.” The album was recorded at the Thohoyandou Assemblies of God Church by Emmanuel Mamphogoro. Prior to this album, Maluleke released Musamaria wa Musa in 2012 and Pfulufhedziso 2015. He said that he started singing in 2007 when he was still in high school. Those interested in the album can phone him on 079 159 0310. “They can also follow me on my Facebook page, Tiyani Lens Maluleke Ministry,” he said. Carrie Netshifhire. Photo supplied.

Carrie ready to conquer the entertainment industry By Mbulaheni Ridovhona Carrie Netshifhire, a young model born and raised in Tshikunda village, is eager to conquer the entertainment industry. The 21-year-old has joined a local radio station, Kingdom FM, and presents the Sunday afternoon show. She is not just a model but also the power behind the Thohoyandou Fashion Week. “This happens when I’m not playing in front of the camera,” she said. She said her career took an upward turn

when she was scouted by Kim Myers in 2016 for the Applause Rising Talent Showcase that takes place annually in Florida, USA. Although she could not attend after being denied a visa three times, she remains courageous and is not giving up on her dreams to become an international model. “I have been on television screens for commercial advertisements for Nissan and Mug and Bean. I will also be using my voice to break the boundaries behind the microphone for Kingdom FM,” she said. She believes that for as long as she is still alive, she will use her talent to

touch lives and empower others. “Being from a village doesn’t mean one deserves to remain in the village. ‘Crown yourself; the greatest emperors crown themselves’ are the words that constantly remind me that nothing will be served on a silver platter, but I have to get up and gracefully take charge of what I want to achieve - not only in the industry but in life as a whole,” she said. She can be reached on social media as Carrie Netshifhire on Facebook and carrintle_konie on Instagram. People can phone her on 065 898 8105 or write to

Jenifer “Lady J” Mushathoni, the well-known former presenter of the SABC education programme Denzhe, recently resigned from her position. She is a proud product of Mungomani Primary School, where she started her schooling in 1990, Mopani Intermediate boarding school, where she completed her primary education in 1996 and Patrick Ramaano Secondary School, where she matriculated in 2001. From Patrick Ramaano, she went to Rosebank College, where she completed her national diploma in media studies and journalism. She also received a diploma in advertising and marketing management from Oxbridge Academy. In 2001, she was picked during Phalaphala FM’s International Children’s Broadcasting Day to become the station’s freelance presenter for Denzhe. Musahathoni went on to become a force to be reckoned with behind the microphone, hosting a variety of programmes, earning herself the name Lady J. Through her programme, she enjoys what she terms “shaping people’s day-to-day debate”. She says that she has more plans to achieve even more in life. She encourages all those interested in breaking into the media and

marketing field to study and get a tertiary qualification in the field. “You need to be a people person and must be able to communicate your thoughts, ideas, and information clearly and concisely, both in writing and verbally. Follow those who are already in the industry and do research to learn more.” According to her, development studies come in handy in her day-to-day radio experience since South Africa is a developmental state. “This ultimately empowers listeners,” she added. “I need more skills to improve my work environment and I want to tell the youth that it is important to get an education first, so that you can make a significant contribution to your community.” The station manager, Mr Freddy Sadiki, praised Mushaathoni for being a hard worker. He indicated that the contribution that Mushaathoni had made in the struggle for quality presenting skills would always be remembered. He urged presenters to work very hard in their profession as well as further their studies. He also said that young presenters should be inspired by Mushaathoni. “Journalists and presenters should be proud of their profession and the work they are doing to restore the dignity of their profession,” he said.

For the Netswinga Royal Council and other community structures in Tswinga village, the days of operating in a small room and sometimes under trees have become history. This follows the opening of new offices at royal palace of the local traditional leader, Chief Netswinga. The hall, which houses the royal council, the local civic and the chief 's office, was officially opened on Saturday. Present during the function were traditional leaders, the local civic, other community structures and many community members. The power behind the project, Chief Alfred Mmbangiseni Tshishonga, said the idea came out of hardship, when it came to issues of governance in the village. "We operated from a small room that served as an office and for traditional rituals and it made things very difficult for us. We could not even buy office equipment as we did not have a place to store them and this made our valuable community information very vulnerable.” He said that they now had a good place to operate and that they had managed to buy a computer and a photocopier that were accessible at all times. “We are very happy that, instead of waiting for the government to do things for us, we stood up and did

that ourselves," he said. Tshishonga further indicated that many had helped in the project, including the local brickmakers who contributed 1000 blocks each. Murendi Building Supplies donated R10 000 and sold other building

materials at greatly discounted prices. "We are very thankful for the support we got from the royal council that bought the ceiling, tiles and doors for the hall. We still need chairs and appeal to businesses to lend us a helping hand, so that we

Loss of leg doesn’t stop brave girl By Maanda Bele

going to come back to school in her wheelchair. She said ‘No! I will come (back) walking’. To my surprise, on Monday she came to school walking

with her crutches.” Anyone who feels that they can help the little girl with counselling can contact the author of this article at

A brave little five-year-old girl from Dopeni in Nzhelele is showing everyone what the human spirit can achieve. In spite of losing her leg in an accident, she is back at school, determined to let her cheerful light shine on all those around her. Masindi Zwoluga Mudau was involved in a terrible accident on 20 March this year. She was walking along the road with two of her siblings and her grandmother, on their way to visit their great grandmother. A taxi apparently overtook another taxi and swerved off the road, hitting the little girl. Masindi was rushed to Polokwane hospital, but the doctors had no other option than to amputate her left leg. She was later transferred to Siloam hospital where she recovered. She was discharged on 30 April. Khuliso Deborah Mulaudzi, Masindi’s mother, said last week that the family members found it very difficult to cope with the situation. “As a mother I am trying to be strong and accept the situation, but I can see that her siblings are struggling to accept the situation, because they witnessed the whole incident,” she said. “Her brother doesn’t want to go anywhere near roads or get inside cars, because of what he saw happening to his sister.” Mulaudzi reckoned that the young girl as well as the other family members would need counselling to help them cope with the trauma. Thus far no-one has offered counselling to any of them. “It pains me, because Masindi doesn’t understand what is happening. Sometimes she cries and says that she wants her leg back. At least if she was counselled she might understand what is happening,” Mulaudzi added. Masindi is a Grade R learner at Mutuwafethu Primary school in Dopeni. The school principal, Mrs Thifhulufhelwi Catherine Tshiovhe, described Masindi as a bright and brave little girl. “In her I see the future of South Africa. She is like a light on a mountain that will shine light Masindi Mudau, after spending two months in hospital, went back to on the country,” she said. “I remember when I visited her in hospital and I asked her if she was school last Monday (30 April) using crutches.

Farewell to pastor Mathoho By Ndivhuwo Musetha

before he joined Correctional Services as a warder at Thohoyandou Central Prison. When he was still young, he was a keen soccer player and played for teams such as Green Hornet, Tshiombo XI Securitas and Khubvi Peace Makers. During these years he earned the nickname of “Dancing Shoes”, which was given to him by Moses Musetha, who admired his dancing skills and compared him to the late Blackpool player, Shoes Moshoeu, who later became a Kaizer Chiefs legend. His started his church in June 2006 and left his job as a warder in 2015 because of illness that had been troubling him for some years. He is survived by his wife, Grace, children, grandchildren, his mother, sisters and two brothers.

It was an emotional affair when members of the Together in Love Christian Church, the Mathoho family and the community of Tshiombo paid their last respects to the late Pastor Nndweleni Nelson Mathoho. Mathoho, better known as ‘Dancing Shoes’, was laid to rest at the Mianzwi cemetery last Saturday. Mathoho, founder and leader of the Together in Love Christian Church, passed away in the Donald Frazer Hospital on the evening of 2 April, hardly an hour after he rendered a sermon at one of the daily prayer sessions held in preparation for the funeral service of the late Sylvia Nndwakhulu. According to his son, Justice Mathoho, Pastor Mathoho fell and collapsed near the main gate of Nndwakhulu’s yard, barely five minutes after he had finished rendering the sermon. During his memorial service, which was held at his church at Tshiombo village on Friday, speakers described Mathoho as a God-fearing man who always preached about love in his church. Pastor Mathoho was born in June 1962 at the Donald Frazer Hospital. After passing matric at Mphaphuli High, he taught at Lunangwe Secondary School, in MatanPastor Nndweleni Nelson Mathoho. gari, as a private educator, Photo supplied.

Your uniqueness is an asset, says SA’s first black woman with a PhD in philosophy Maanda Bele South Africa’s first black woman to be awarded a PhD in philosophy comes from the village of Makwarela, just outside Sibasa. On Thursday, 12 April, Dr Mpho Tshivhase received her PhD degree during the graduation ceremony of the University of Johannesburg (UJ). Her thesis, very fittingly, focuses on what it means for people to be unique. The title of her thesis was entitled: “Towards a normative theory of uniqueness of persons.” Her research project was completed under the supervision of Prof Thaddeus Metz, Distinguished Professor in the Department of Philosophy at UJ.

Prof Metz described Dr Tshivhase’s thesis as the first systematic treatment of uniqueness as something valuable that can be manifested in a person’s life. “Dr Tshivhase distinguishes the value of uniqueness from other values such as happiness and morality, arguing that it merits attention as something worth having in its own right. She also points out that existing philosophical accounts of uniqueness all share the counter-intuitive implication that everyone is always already unique,” he said. The 32-year-old Dr Tshivhase, who works as a lecturer at the University of Pretoria, said that her newly acquired qualification had opened her eyes to see an obvious gap in the development of women “While we know the political history that has led to this gap, I believe

it is important to find ways to redress this deficiency. While it is inspiring and well worth celebrating, it is also distressing that I am the first African woman from South Africa to get a doctorate in the field of philosophy from any institution.” Tshivhase is the last-born of three children who were raised by a single mother, the late Ellen Tshivhase. She encouraged other women to follow their dreams. “Dreams that one has for oneself are never impossible. To fail at one’s own dreams is to fail oneself. People, in general, should never give up on their own dreams. Women in particular should never think that being a woman makes them less capable of achieving their own goals,” she said.

Dr Mpho Tshivhase became South Africa’s first black woman to earn a PhD in philosophy.

Kone has a passion for productive bees Maanda Bele For many people the sight of a swarm of bees is something that causes them to run for cover, but not for the 19-year-old Kone Raphulu from Siloam. Makhulu Vho Muvhulawa Tshinangana (thirdt from left) cuts her birthday cake, assisted by her grandchildren.

Raphulu is not afraid to handle thousands of bees and he does not get stung by these little buzzing creatures. He said that it all started in 2014, largely due to his curiosity. “One day I was herding a flock of goats when I saw a nest full of bees and I decided to harvest it,” he said. “I didn’t wear any suit or overalls or even burn anything,” he said, but admitted that at first some of the bees attacked him. “Even though they bit me, I just got more curious,” he said. Raphulu explained that he started to realise that the bees sense fear and when someone is about to attack them. He became even more curious, but knew he

had to learn more about these little insects. He ended up enrolling for a short course in bee-keeping at the Madzivhandila Agricultural College in Thohoyandou. “My love for bees grew stronger and I started to take bees home, placing them in a hive that I had made. I knew that it posed a danger to other people, so I had stop until I found my own spot in the forest where I now have 10 hives.” Raphulu is now a commercial honey farmer. “I sell bottles full of honey around the area I stay in, and the demand for honey is higher than the supply,” he said. “I have 10 hives with 12 trays each and each hive can produce about 50 bottles from a good harvest, This, however, is not enough to distribute to my customers,” he said. “Another big challenge is the change of season. During winter there are no flowers, so the production of honey stops until the flowers blossom again in spring.”

Double-header waits at Zwigodini By Frank Mavhungu Most of the affiliates of the MMK Administrators Soccer League will play two matches this weekend. Residents of Zwigodini and the surrounding areas will have the privilege to watch high-grade football on their doorstep. Their two local teams, Anel Real Vikings and Berea FC, will play their league matches at home, the Zwigodini grounds, tomorrow.

Berea’s dribbling wizard, Elias Ranyaoa.

The pace setters, Berea FC, will host Tshiungani Young Chiefs in the first match at 13:00. Young Chiefs have only pride at stake as they are already out of the promotion race. On the other hand, Berea must collect the maximum points to be sure of a place in the promotional playoffs. Chiefs will have a mammoth task to stop Berea’s fast forwards, Dakalo Ratshitanga, Edwin Ramphabana and Elias Ranyaoa. It remains to be seen whether the Chiefs’ strikers will have the power to penetrate the defence of Berea, which will be marshaled by Aubrey Ndou and Dzivhuluwani Simba. Anel Real Vikings will entertain Mapakoni Vikings at 15:00. Mapakoni are leaving no stone unturned in their preparations for the game as they are one of the relegation candidates. The other fixtures are: Tshisimani Top Challengers vs Musina All Stars, Makuya Try Again vs Muhuyu Copper Stars, Mavunde Hungry Vultures vs Tshixwadza Brazilians, Sambandou United Professional vs Makuya Junior Aces, Tshivhilidulu Hungry Lions vs Mauluma Black Mambas, Rabali Pull Together vs Khakhhu Real Vultures, Muwaweni Lucky Stars vs Mashamba Benfica, Zoutpansberg Powerlines vs Mpheni Home Defenders, Tshikhwani Stone Breakers vs LTT Murunwa TVET, Beuster Mighty Chiefs vs Gwamasenga United Brothers, Tshakhuma RO Na Ndilani vs Univen FC, Flying Eagles FC vs Phungo All Stars, Dobby Freedom Birds vs Rockers FC, Ngovhela Backside vs Themba Sunrise Riders and Maranzhe Hungry Lions vs Mutuwa Brazilians.

Will City and Baroka survive the axe? By Kaizer Nengovhela

Baroka’s captain, Letladi Madubanya.

Now that’s a proper wrap The Diversity Cultural Festival held in Eltivillas the past weekend attracted a lot of attention. One of the most popular stalls was the Turkish shawarma meals. The Turkish chef knew exactly how to prepare this delicious meal, where a combination of beef and other meats is placed on a spit and grilled for a day. Shavings are cut off the block of meat for serving in a wrap.

It remains to be seen whether Polokwane City and Baroka will collect maximum points in their last matches in the Absa Premier League, which will be played on Saturday, The two Limpopo sides are in danger of relegation and must win their matches to escape the axe. Baroka and City are in 13th and 14th positions respectively if they fail to win their matches. SuperSport United and Ajax Cape Town can leapfrog them on the final log. With Platinum Stars already relegated, the team that finishes in the second-last spot on the log will have to participate in the promotional play-offs with Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos. Baroka caretaker coach Doctor Khumalo is confident that they will play well, and he called on his players to redeem themselves in their final match. “We need to show character. We need to raise our heads and make up for the three points we lost,” said Khumalo. City’s coach, Bernard Molekwa, said that his players had promised to rectify their previous mistakes. Polokwane City will meet Chippa United at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium, while Baroka will play against SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium. Both matches will start at 15:00.

National Order for local boxing trainer and legend By Mbulaheni Ridovhona Eric Risimati Baloyi, South Africa’s boxing training legend who hails from Malamulele, received the Order of Ikhamanga (silver) from president Cyril Ramaphosa at the end of April. Baloyi formed part of the select group of people on whom National Orders were bestowed at the Sefako Makgatho Presidential Guesthouse in Tshwane.

His daughter, Vulani Baloyi, described him as a humble and loving father who took care of his children. “My dad loves people and he likes giving to the poor. He feels fulfilled when he has done something for other people. His love for boxing is unbelievable,” she said. Local doctor and community leader Dr Isaiah Ndhambi said that the Malamulele boxing gym must be named after Mr Eric Baloyi as part of honouring his contribution to boxing and community development.

The National Orders are the highest awards that South Africa bestows on citizens and members of the international community who have contributed meaningfully towards making the country a free, democratic and successful nation, united in its diversity. The 76-year-old Baloyi was honoured for his contribution to youth development through training young boxers who have gone on to make South Africa proud in global competitions. He has produced professional boxers such as Cassius Baloyi, Isaac Hlatshwayo and Jeffrey Mathebula. The Order of Ikhamanga recognises South African citizens who have excelled in the fields of arts‚ culture‚ literature‚ music‚ journalism and sport. Baloyi was euphoric when his name was called out to be honoured by the President and he said it was like he was in dreamland. “I felt like someone has just woken me from a dream. I’m so proud to have received this accolade. I would like to thank Benson Ntlemo who wrote to the presidency for me to be honoured and my wife and children for their support in my career. I’m grateful for my wife, because at some point I wanted to give up, but she kept encouraging me to continue with boxing development in the Malamulele area,” said Baloyi, who is the father of retired boxing champion Cassius Baloyi. Eric Baloyi began his boxing training and promoting career in 1979, after being influenced by the great boxer, Cassius Clay, better known as Muhammad Ali. He also named his Mr Eric Risimati Baloyi with the Order of son after this famous boxer. Ikhamanga. Photo supplied.

TTM surrender to Ubuntu Cape Town By Frank Mavhungu Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) wrapped up their league activities on a sad note when Ubuntu Cape Town beat them 3-1 at the Parow Park Stadium in Cape Town on Sunday. Dave Chivaviro scored a brace for the home side, while the third one came via Edwin Alexander. TTM’s solitary goal was an honour to Lesvin Stoffels. Ubuntu needed maximum points from the match to escape the relegation axe. They finished their league programme in the third spot from the bottom of the log, one step above the relegation line. On the other hand, TTM, who seemed to be poised for

automatic promotion at some stage, wrapped up their league activities in the sixth spot. The last two teams on the log, Mthatha Bucks and Super Eagles, will be campaigning in the lower division when the activities for the new season start in September. Uthongathi FC would have been relegated, had they not registered a 1-0 victory over University of Pretoria at the Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban. Eric Magagula scored the important goal for Uthongathi to keep them in the NFD for another season. Mthatha Bucks displayed entertaining football against Super Eagles, despite the fact that they had already been relegated to the ABC Motsepe League before their match. The final score was 1-1.

Bucks finished their league programme with 22 points, 10 behind the second-last side, Super Eagles. Highlands Park were too good for Stellenbosch FC, whom they crushed 3-0 at the Athlone Stadium in Cape Town. Royal Eagles used their home-ground advantage to beat Witbank Spurs 1-0 at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg. Karabo Tshepe scored a brace when Black Leopards beat Jomo Cosmos 3-0 at the Thohoyandou Stadium. Joseph Mhlongo scored the third. Real Kings lost 1-2 to Cape Town All Stars at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Durban, while Richards Bay beat Mbombela United 1-0 at the Kabokweni Stadium in Nelspruit.

Blue Eagles and United Artists in 1-1 draw By Frank Mavhungu In their MMK Administrators Soccer League match at the Tshitungulwane grounds on Saturday, Muziafera Blue Eagles rose to the occasion and held the Stream A pace setters,

United Artists, to a 1-1 draw. The game started 45 minutes later than the scheduled 15:00 kickoff time, because of the late arrival of the match official. The game was played in a see-saw manner, with both sides creating and wasting their

obvious scoring opportunities. Blue Eagles could have taken the lead nine minutes into the game. They were awarded a free kick just outside the box. Rudzani Zwidokane tried his luck, but the ball hit the Artists’ wall and bounced outside the field of play for a corner kick. United Artists came close to scoring in the 35th minute. Their right winger, Emmanuel Neswiswi, forced his way through the defence of Eagles and unleashed a half volley from the edge of the box. The ball missed the target by inches, much to the fans’ disappointment. The scoreboard was still blank at the end of the first half, despite numerous attempts by both sides. The referee, Mr Eric “Khathikhathi” Munyai, flashed the first yellow card four minutes into the last half. Victor Makhaukhau of United Artists obstructed Hulani Mphephu and Munyai was quick to flash yellow. United Artists were the first to blow the trumpet. Emmanuel Neswiswi hooked in the ball, following scramble within the box. Another Artists player who was reprimanded with a card was Fhatuwani Muthathedzwa. He tackled Lufuno Munyai of Eagles from behind. The home side found the equalizer in the 74th minute. Ntshuxeko Sithole hooked in the loose ball, following a scramble within the box.

16 11 May 2018 A group of women from the Gusal community in Thohoyandou handed over 65 blankets to the Thohoyandou Children’s Home last Wednesday (2 May). The blankets were handed by Ms Tahera Patel on behalf of the group to the home’s acting manager, Ms Peggy Vele. Ms Patel said that they felt the children at the home should not suffer as winter approached. “We know the government takes care of them, but we felt we should also do our bit. We raised funds from our own pockets and we pooled together the money to buy these blankets. We have previously helped in other areas, but we felt we should do this close to home,” she said. Ms Vele, thanked them for the donation. “Government makes provision for these kids, but if there are businesses wishing to partner with us in making life better for the kids, our doors are always open,” she said.

In the front row are Thovhele Ratshibvumo II Rambuda and to the right of the king is Chief Livhuwani Matsila.

The jubilant supporters of Black Leopards hold a makeshift coffin with the letters RIP on it, to represent Jomo Cosmos’s fate during the Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos National First Division match played at Thohoyandou Stadium the past weekend.
